NEW YORK HERALD. New York, Monday, DMtmbet 11,18*3. Oar Washington K*i>orta. li will b?- perceived thai our reports at Washing ton are beginning to be quite interesting. We ma as well elate, to nrevent imnrtuitinnu r?n tliJ mililu' that our reenters are Mr. J. Edwards for tin Huus-', and Mr. Beman for the Senate. Non< # others are engaged by this office. Relations of lite United State* ?*?? Kn|{UiiiI SorUl and Financial. In former times the relations between separatt and independent nations, emanating from their re apective sovereigns, were either belligerent 01 courtly?maintained either by musketry and cap non, or the etiquette and usages of diplomatic intercoms. During the last quarter of a century, and particularly since the termination of the revolutionary struggles in France, all Europe, and we may any all America, have become subject to entirely new influences in the maintenance of theii relations to each other. Diplomatic iutercoursc still exist* as formerly, but another species of relations, much deeper and more interesting than that, and of a peculiar character, has sprung up withir the last few years. We mean the social and literary relations now* subsisting between Great Britain and the United States, originating altogethet in the vastly increased intercourse of the na'ivei of both countries, and the constant interchange o sentiment am! nnmmn tlimuirh the medium of th? newspapers and the press gen -rally. The omnipo teace of steam on the laud und 011 the ocean, hai brought together the two continent:), and rendered every nook and corner of both perfectly accessible to every traveller ; annihilating time and space tc such a degree that one can now traverse a liemi sphere in a shorter period and with greater ease than formerly he could travel over a small king dom. In this way, a mighty revolution, social anc literary, has been produced, which will lead tc still more important changes, and produce greate results, with respect to the relations and futurt destiny of both countries, than any event which has before taken place in the world. Confining our attention, just now, to the view o the relations of England with the United States just suggested, we shall find that thev have as sumed a variety of very curious aspects during tin last few years, and are at this moment highly in teresting and worthy of attenlion. About the tim< that this Atlantic steam navigation commenced when an American visited Europe he was receivec with the most flattering marks of respect am esteem. In France and England he was regardei as a species of sovereign?a unit of that immena and overshadowing body which had laid on th< other side of the Atlantic the foundations of tin most extended empire which the world had eve seen, and which was every day growing rapidly ii power and refinement, and met everywhere testi monials of regard, which were most gratifying, ant could not fail to elicit from himself a correspond in? feeling in favor of those who accorded liiir Buch a tl ittering degree of social distinction. Un fortunately, this agreeable state of tilings did hoi continue. A few years passed away, and in con r-quence of extravagant expenditure and a variety of other causes, a terrible revulsion took place in our commercial relations, and vasts debts were incurred by individuals, which it was found imposnible to pay. Still, however, the amiable anc pleasing social intercourse, to which we have jusi alluded, was unbroken. But when the great State! of Pennsylvania, Mississippi, and other importan numbers of this Union, weighed down by the dis asters of the times, and the consequences of thei own indiscretion, which cannot be regarded a otherwise thau highly criminal, neglected to j>ro vide for the payment of the interest on their debt and discovered their inability to redeem thei bonds,which had been bought by great numbers o the small capitalists and annuitants of France am England, then a very marked change indeei took place in the social intercourse of the twi nations. The feeling then awakened, unfavoui able to this country, has since been every yea increasing ; and an American traveller in Eng land now, instead of being received as heretofore with respect and kindness, is regarded with undis guis-*d suspicion, and is sure to encounter, on at hands, the most mortifying evidences of the alteret tone ot public feeling. In fact, the very waiters a the inns', .as tin y .-How the "American gentleman' to his room, make sure, by rep?ited examination that their pockets are safely buttoned, left ihei might lose the sixpence or shilling lying comfort ably there. We might allude to many instances o tliis kind, shewing that American travellers an looked on in Europe as a species of sharpers am pickpockets, and a very dangerous species too The reception which the letters of the Rev. Syd ney Smith has met in England, alone, discover very clearly the state of feeling at present prevail in? there. . The last arrival furnishes us with another in stance. In reply to these attacks ol the Rev. Syd ney Smith, we find that Gen. Duff Green, at pre B?nt in London, has felt himself called upon ti write a series of letters, and two of them hav appear d in the London Timet?the principal orgai of public opinion in Great Britain. The Genera wrote a third letter, but it was refused insertion and the Times accompanied its intimation to thi effect, by the lollowing very characteiistic ar tide :? [From .he London Times ] Frenchmen arc sometime! impertinent, Irishmen impn (lent, Welshmen voluble, Englishmen blustering, Scotch men cool, but the conjoint coolness, blustering vuluhilitv lmpudence, and impertinence of a true \ anker has'i it i>i<r hf li on#! Hfltith anH hra^lth U wtti?k i.fl ? * of t?iesc nation" in their most characteristic accomplish ment. Wi- do not say these word* arc precisely applicable t< our correspondent, IJeneral Duff Green, but wo do say tha the three letter* elicited from that gentleman by Mr. 8yd ney Smith's castigation of hi* countrymen, iinplv hi amount of brass which, though possibly not unparalfelo on this side of the Atlantic, we certainly do never befor rememtier to have seen concentrated in any one individu al. With the last and longest of these communication! received yesterday, we really cannot trouble our reader It it, however, a remarkable composition. The gentleman impudence amounts to a talent. We stare, and an' a founded as we stare, at the mode in w hich this advocal and representative of a confederation of public bankrupt coolly turns the tables and without having, or preteodiii{ to have, a word of valid defence, begins lecturing us, hi creditois. on the hvpocrisy of our pretensions toplulan tliropy, and the selfishness of our exertions to abolish sin very and the slave trade. Here is a country, rich, as the Americans themselve nre always telling us, to the utmost extent of richness with no jiooi and no taxes?a people industrious, prompt and money-making?favored in the physical capabilitie of their country?favored in the uudeniable energy nn< Ion-sight which nature |h:is given them?with no once* c use of necessity, hardly of convenience,for their conduct who yet coolly and simply refuse to pay their debts be cause they don't like paying money. They ate enjoyiii| the fruit* of their borrowed capital There it is- rail r?ads. canals, bridges, drains, clearances?plain, undenis hie gain to Pennsylvania The creditor may stand by am see the natives make their profit or take their pleasure ou of his capital--mav watch the rapid motion, increasei tratti' or improved crops that he has given them. Wh] should not all this be paid lor I Simply because it caii not w carried off. The Pennsylvani'an farmer or mei chant knows that his creditors, grumble jsthey may, can not pocket the canals or ship off the railroads;* they havi been fools enough to build for him, and so lit' puts hi hands in his pockets and his feet on his chimneypiecc hugs himsett in comfort over his growing income, am takes care to vote fur a repudiating representative in th State legislature. In,l nniii Ihil ? ? - - -- i?"' oegin 10 complain, what i Mid to ui 1 " Pay u* the money you have swindled out o our pockets," say the Knglish capitalists. " Oh !" say lieneral Oreen, " what shocking nonsense that woi yci used to talk about the slave trade." " But we want ou money," say we. " You didn't really think to make 11 lielieve you in earnest about them slaves," says the Ren* ral ; " I urn?** Jonathan'! too 'cute for that, anyhow. " 1'ay, ynu scoundrels." reiterate* John Bull. " Weil, 1 lie mire." says the American advocate, " the selfishness t kngland almut thoac slave* in unfathomable " And this I not said in an oil hand, random nliilrr style of attack . Tin1 Oeneral gives it u* in etlrnw. It in a good folio virtu which he ha* at our nervier The preacher who ought I hang dnw n hi* head and blush at the very chink of a do lar or mention of a bill of exchange, fills our ear* and stui our senses with the exposure of our own iniquitiesenlarge*, dilate*, confute*, and mystifies, till we scarf know whether wc stand on our head* or our heels. 11 our friend may depend upou it, that let hiin blarney as h rhooses, he will never talk down that one little wordPay ! The execution of his design displays almost a* nine effrontery as its conception. He member of a coiiiitr which certainly knows the value of money in its pnrsi n Imits that we have paid 'JO.OOO.ItfiO/ ?that we have ruil 1 .1 flourishing colony? that we are at present losers t most enormous extent in pursuit ol this pliilanthropici 1ratchet of our* lie ought to know that this measure 1 abolition, crude and headlong ai it unquestionably was, wan forced upon tin1 legislature by tlx- clamors of those - who know no mare of commercial monopolies, of Brazilian sugar, or Virginian cotton, than Peunsylvanian _ doe* of honesty. Yet he will have it, it wa* all a nut, u deep trick U> destroy the planter* of Carolina. Anil, on ? h.it ground* has he the impudence to insinuate thia false [- hood ? Because, among the myriad* who advocated the y abolition of slavery, some few told us that even in a commercial lioint of view wc fhould gain by it?because, having placet! our own countrymen at a grievous disadvantage with respect to all other manufactures of sugar, , we attempt to restore the proportion by an artificial ar rungement ol duties with respoct to tugar consumed in thir country?because we do not make the iniane attempt to extend the came correction to sugar comumed in other , countries, by taxing its mere transport through thi?--because, finally, we permit British subjects having dealings with the inhabitants of slaveholding countries to sell ' such slaves as come into their possession, without any in. tent ion of their own, hy devise, descent, marriage, or the bankruptcy of u slaveholding debtor. These are the r grounds on which this American, at a set-oft' against the . sw indling insolvency of his rich countrymen, lounds an accusation against Kngland of selfish' and designing hypocriiy. , This, however, is but the opening ol General Green's campaign. Not satisAed with carrying the war into our country, he wants to get something more out of us. He thinks "we have aot yet l>een swindled enough, and coolly proposes that we should again turn our pockets inside out lor lum. Last time it w as by direct disbursement that we were plundered. Now it is by relaxation of duties in favor i of American produce. If we would be thought to }>os*?mi a particle of honesty or philanthropy?says this diplomatic agent of the most bitterly protective country- in the | world?we must adopt a liberal commercial policy. To be sure, we did make one move in that direction, and 1 \merica met it by putting on the duties which we took oft'. But next time we shall hsve better luck. General Dufl' Green tells us so. Free trade will be carried in Con?;res?, and, whether carried or not, we shall at any rate lave the convolution of believing that General Daft' Green . has advocated it. "1 am lor free trade." "1 will urge it with what influence I may have, as a means of preserving t peace and promotiug the prosperity of both countries." A full and complete satisfaction, doubtless, for all the concession!! which Great Britain is to make! We are to be plun dore.1 and deceived?our unpaid loans are to build the i American railroads?our manufactures are to pay the American taxes; but General Duff GreA will have used 1 his influence for us ! General Duft'Green will have propo> sed in Congress to lighten some of our burdens ! Kven this is not all The man has not yet done putting ' his hand into our pockets. If, he tells us, America fails to grant us a reform of her tariff, it will be because we claim our rights on the Oregon. Let but Kngland admit ' American produce unrestrictedly to English markets, and concede unrestrictedly to American claim* on the Pacific, | and then, indeed, General Oreen will talk about it, and the Con^ret* will think about it. ' This Is, was, and will he, the American cry?"Give ! r Give! Give !" But the English counter-cry will be? "Pay! Pay! Pay!" Before you ask us to believe a single : word you say?before you expect us to entertain a single I argument you use?" pay your debts." Till then, you have no right to a place among honest nations?you have no claim to ordinary credit or common courtesy. Unless t you come with your money in your hand and pny down upon delivery, buy not at all, barter not at all?we need ' not say borrow not'at all?and if you must needs be negotiating, negotiate with the convicts of Botany Bay. ; This is a very extraordinary, amusing, sarcastic, - nevere, and peihaps a decidedly more unpleasant ; article than even those which emanated from the , Rev. Sivney Smith, and yet it is only a fair sample 1 of the (general feeling which prevails among all 1 classes in England and France, where public atJ tention is directed to American character and e American credit. Every opportunity is seized upon e by the press to hurl a sarcasm at American charac? ter in consequence of the dishonorable conduct ot r Pennsylvania and the other States, who with ample 1 means to pay their debts, still delay to discharge - their obligations, and give no indication whatever 1 of their disposition to do so at nny future time. And what reply can we make to all this! i Yet the whole truth, as very often happens, is far from being exhibited in this controversy, on al| l occ asions. We are not to look only on this side ot the water for the causes which have produced tins ' unpleasant state of things, That would be a great i mistake indeed. But it is the mistake into which fhp nrp?v nn fhn ntln?r cwlo nnifrtrmlv falla 11r*w has the condition of things which we all deplore 1 been produced! Why, it was produced by the chi* t canery, corruption and intrigues of unprincipled * brokers' n:id bankers, who held out such inducet ments to the small capitalists and annuitants of England and France, as led them to invest r their property in American State stocks, s with the prosi>ect of receiving a large interest, and who tlicn, by means of their , agents here, successfully intrigued with the niemt berg of our legislatures, leading them into all soits f of indiscretion and folly, and wasteful expenditure, 1 which eventually plunged the States into debt bei yond all their means, and so inflicted on the poor 0 |>eople here, the same wrong and suffering, under which the widows and orphans and small annui j tants on the otherstde of the Atlantic now labor. - In the one ease the people have been plundered. , and in the other loaded with debt for moneys from . which they derived no benefit, but which were 1 squandered in the most profligate manner by those 1 who had the management of the public nfi'airs. It t has been by means of these rapacious scoundrels, ' the money dealers, that the American creditors in t Europe, and the poor and honest people of Penn t sylvania and Mississippi have been robbed and . ruined, and involved in degradation. In the one | case, property has been lost, and in the other, cha? racter and reputation, and all by the influence of the j most unprincipled scoundrels in existence?the . financiers of London, New York, and Philadel. phia- We hear much talk of the Rothschilds and $ Daring*, and Kiddles ; but we look on them all in |. the same light?as a spec ies of the greatest bloodsuckers that ever polluted society, and fattened on . the sufferings of humanity. We now begin to reap the full effects of the in . triguesand corruptions and rogueries of these men. 0 The countty is disgraced in Europe, and there i.P no help for it. The only way to wipe it off , is for a ihe States who have refused, or cannot pay their 1 debts, to come up at once and do the best they , can. There is no other mode by which they can < icuievv uicir nuiiur anu regain a respeciaDie posi. lion amongst the nations of the earth. Postmaster General's Report.?This document is a great ruriosity. It is an admirable commentary on the management of this Department. The jumbling of facts?the incoherence of detail? the utter incapacity of the author to deduce any conclusion from his facta,?the total absence of method or order?all are highly characteristic. It is just such a paper as should emanate from the present Post Office Department. It is really time for President Tyler to hunt up somebody to take charge of this Department. Cun no one be got who will undertake to manage it with liberality, prosperity and discretion T Let the President advertise for a Postmaster General, and offer a reward for his discovery. If no other plan will succeed, we think that the otter of a reward of #500, perhaps $1000, might lead lo thediscovery of a suitable candidate. Pricks of IIrkad.?We again allude to this subject. (If all matters of consumption, this necessary article seems to be least understood. Everybody Ijuve fell into thu bakers' system of sixpenny and shilliiur loaves, without knowing the weight. They can judge of the <|Uality but not of the quan" tity. Let us figure a little. A barrel of flour, iqft rout* mr<au tVir? Karrnl\ tt-1 tk<? u??if?l?? j in estimated to increase 25 per cent in being transy muted into bread, Thus we have 24/>ll?. of bread ^ from each barrel; Kay a shilling loaf weighs 3 J lbs., i- we have seventy loaves in a barrel, which at the wholesale price of lid., yields per barrel, or $3 25 profit to the baker, to pay for his fuel and labor, 1 or a profit of 70 per cent on the cost of each barrel; ' or a loaf which costs fij cents, he sells for lid. ? Besides this, the groccr has his profit of a penny on a loaf. This article ought to be sold by the pound, ii as are other articles of consumption, and until [ some regulation be made that the loaves shall be : of uniform weight in several sizes, or stamped, we hope the Common Council will direct an officer to 0 , . . ,( publish weekly in rhe papers, the daily weiget o( each baker's loaf selling for a shilling. " Ctmous Kri.ic of the Past.?Growth of this ? City,?Workmen engaged in digging up the street, it on il?p corner of Houston and Hroadwuy, threw ii|> ~ on Saturday, with their spades, an old mile stone, on which was cut "One mile to New York!" '* This stone was placed there years ago when that part of the city whs the country. Where the Ii Astor House now stands wan then the heattof thir v metropolis, where the mile stone was found is now i. the centre. Such a relic is wr|| worth seeing, and we believe ii is to be exhibited ut the American i,I Museum. Musicai. Mania?Rivai. Concerts.?-Ole Bull the great violinist, gives a concert to-night at th Tabernacle. This is intended to give to those i>ci sona and families in this city, who cannot con acientiously viait the theatre, an opportunity tohea him. We observe that on this evening, also, tli new candidate for public favor, Vieux Temps, give a ronreri ut Wnfihinirtrtn If ft 11 At firwf 1 might appear unfortunate that these artists shouli have selected the same night for their concerts, am out of this accident?for purely accidental it ha been?the Courier ties Ktats Unit and the littl clique of which it is the organ, has been endeavot ing to create a flame of resentment against 01> Bull, and to create a prejudice, out of which i hopes to crowd Washington Hall. This is a iniac rable trick, and unworthy of a moment's attentioi by any one who has true love for music or the art We have no doubt that the passion for music ii this city is so great, that both the Tabernacle am Washington Hall will be overflowed. But, indeed the attempt to excite any feeling against Ole Bui I for giving a concert to-night, is very petty, i notice of his concert for Thursday night was pub lished in this paper about a week ago, and tin Courier Enquirer, and one or two other papers attributed that announcement to Ole Bull. Butthi is a mistake. We made that announcement with out any knowledge of its inaccuracy, and, indeed did not name positively the day, but merely statei that we supposed he would give a concert 01 Thursday. Vieux Temps comc9 here with a very exalted re putation. If he sustains it, no doubt he will bi very warmly received and supported. And sursli it is not necessary in admiring him and giving hin the highest place his merits deserve, to relinquisl our regard and esteem for Ole Bull. The world i: wide enough for both, and this country is largi enough for both to reign as despotically as thei genius authorizes, it being awarded on all handi that Mr. Artot occupies a different position fro:: both. Indeed, we believe that the printipu sufferer will be poor Mr. Macready at the Fark. Postscript?Postponement of Ole Bull's Con cert?His Magnanimity to a Brother Artist.\Ve are startled somewhat at the following an nouncement, which was handed to us late last eve ning, of the postponement of Ole Bull's Concert Postponement of Air. Ole Bull's Concert. A CARD. To the Public.?On my return from Philadel phia, I have learned, with regret, that some unplea sant fi eling has been excited in consequence of nv having announced a Concert at the Tabernacle on Monda\ Evening, the 11th 111st. Mr Vieu; Temps, my brother uitist, (whom I have ^ot th honor of knowing personally) has announced,: Concert on the same evening. The fact is I had engaged the room for this evening before Mi Vieux Temps had arrived in this city, but 1 moa n.hpprfnllv viplrl fhp pvpninf? to him. :>nH trust h< may receive, on the occasion, the same kindnea which has ueen so liberally bestowed oil me. beg my friends to excuse the postponement of.m Concert to Wednesday evening, in consequence c this, when I shall have the pleasure of appearin before them ; and again on Monday evening, th 18th inst., in a farewell Concert. I take this oj portunity to express my warmest gratiiude for th great kindness I have received from the citizens c New York. OLE BULL. Astor House, Dec. 10, 1843. This is admirable. Ole Bull gives up th night and the violin to Yieuxemps without a wort! Yesterday he arrived here at 3 o'clock from Phila delphia, and as soon as he learned the situation c things, he at once determined to postpone his cor cert. " I vill give Mr. Vieuxtemps a fair field?v not 1 we are all brudders." There will, therefore be a terrible rush to-night to Washington Halland a more terrible one on Wednesday uight atth Tabernacle. We understand also, that oil Saturday nicht. i Philadelphia, the Kie<ti violinist was received will even greater astonishment than ever. He was call ed out seven time*, besides making a little aflet tionate speech. Before the last time, he asked on of the musicians?" 'Ave you got de note of de Ha Columbia ?" " Oh! yes"?" I neverc saw himcan you show de note of him a moment t" H was shown the music. He looked at the notes few seconds?his eyes sparkled?lie seized his vie lin?he glided 011 the stage?he put his instrumen to his ear?then flew ofl in a splendid fantasia, clot ing with the air of Hail Columbia, in a style o beauty, sublimity and pathos, that made the whol house rise up in one fit of excitement and applause So Philadelphia is mad too, and no mistake. om Ship News Reports?Courtesy of Cai tains?Our ship news collector, in the pursuit c tn irine intelligence, yesterday morning, boarde 'he ship Mary Frances, from Mobile. She is com manded by a Captain Hubbard, and is one of th regular line of Mobile packets, for which Meson Post & Phillips are agents. Our collector, on re questing the report of the ship?whence she sailet ?the length of her passage?her cargo, <Scc., wa informed by the Captain that he did not like th .Vew York Herald, nor Mr. Bennett, and woul not, therefore, give its any information ; and w ire unable, for these weighty reasons, to give th report of that ship to our numerous readers thi morning. We look upon this refusal on the part of the Car tain of the Mary Frances, as the height of impu lence and impertinence. What right has he to re fuse to give this or any other paper n report of thi >hip 1 Is he her only owner, and being in the pos session of a small ship, is he to refuse the public jpon whom he is dependant for his cargoes, sucl information as they want and have a right to de 1 in:infl ? W#? rln n<?f h#?!i*vpfhat siir?hnnnHn/?f uuL Iieen displayed by this Captain, willbe countenance* for one moment, by the agents and owners of thi ship. We believe that, as merchants, the; know too well the use of correct ship news report to permit a Captain of theirs to behave us disgrac. fully as this Captain has done. We, therefore, in fh name of the mercantile public, call upon them i< examine into this matter and punish this block heai for hi? ignorance and ini|>ertinerice. Ii is now ten years since we established the He I raid, an-1 we do not recollect of ever before havinf been refused any ship newshy any of the thousand! of captains who have entered this harbor during tha time. We have Sjient over thirty thousand dollar.in our news department in those ten years, in orde to give the earliest intelligence to the world, and therefore, think, that we have a right to expect re ciprocity from the mercantile marine of this ani all other nations. Our ship news reports are tin most correct of any published in this country, an< our ship news collectors are ever gentlemanly am polite to captains of vessels, from a cock boat to i line of packet ship. And in all intercourse witl them,we never before heard of such an instance o ignorance and impudence as we mention in this ur ticle. Contrast the conduct of this Captain Ilub bard with that of the commander of any othe picket ship, and we see at once what most pre do minat^s in liitn.

Ou Friday last, the sailors' of the j>ort held a cond meeting, at Croton Ilall, for the purpose of tablishing a society, and regularly organizing to ist.iin "the strike" made al the previous meeting, r #15 per month. The proceedings were marked r the same regularity, good order, and steudy deeanour, winch was so much the subject of comendutiou at the first meeting. A prayer of much rcc, beauty, and true christian charity, was udc at the opening, by Mr. Oates. Mr. G*or?k riLsox, the President of the meeting, came forard and said? Shipmate* a?b Kei.i.ow Seamen.?The reason of our seting thia afternoon, it fora purpose somewhat different that lor which we met before, but yet not disconnected uu iuc prui cvauiKH 01 iuui uuy. j nen we met to demd a kiit<her rate of wages. Thanks to (tod, he heard e honest prayer that day oll'erod, and he has vouchsafed an answer, and we have gained our end*, (cheers) ithout the aid of the landlord or the notary. (Cheers.) e now meet to support this rate, and prevent its dec reusg, and we have every reason to hope that if times grow tter, we shall even increase our wages. (Cheers.) But irk what I tell you. There are among our community en who are even now at work, secretly anil underhanuly, who are pouring into the merchants' and ship owns ears the poison of "low wages"?advising them not give in?that in a faw Jays this excitement would be er, and then they could ship us at any price, it I tell them lor you, that that day is gone ; a seaman will have his wages as surely as the lundsin. (Cheers.) Yet these same skulking back-biters me to us and shake our hands, and tell us that their art nud soul it. with us. I verily believe such fellows vo no soul; its only a chalk-flint. (Cheers.) Such are e scoundrels we have to contend against, and not the >n?ist merchant and respectable ship master. Hut our use is just?our motto is "sailor's rights," and "Trust Providence." Yes, the teetotal seamen no longer ask tier men to talk for them; they are able to speak their vn opinions and isentiments. He is no longer a slaveit lie boldly and fearlessly takes his place with the brave id the free. (Cheers.! But above all, he is a temperance in. (Cheers.) Anil here I would relate the advantages temjierance seaman has above all others:?A day or two ice,a landlord, w ho keeps a boarding house near Cathene market, told a poor rum-drinking sailor?what we 11 an "outward bounder," that is aTellow who has nei cr monev or credit, and who must ?hip whether he will not. This landlord?shark I call him?told the poor itward bounder that uiileas he shipped on board a cerin vessel, at the low wages, he must turn him out to se/.e in the street*?and so the nun-one had to ship.? 'hat a miserable state does not rum reduce a man?a sair, to. The other day a crew of temperance sailors icked out as the ship was ready for sea, and their place as supplied by a few drunken loafers, who were smuged on board by their landlords, who had drained them of cry cent, and had chalked up a long score against them, 'ell, the very next day, these same temperance seamen ipped at the new rate on board a good packet?(cheers.) lius you sec, in this instance, the good results of tempence. (Cheers.) Now let me recommend any sailor to : temperate, and patronize temperance houses, and he ill then be enabled to take his stand among the well-reilated portion of society. Now to the purpose of our eeting : It is for the benefit of land-wrecked seamen, ho has a board bill to pay, und can't get n ship, except low wages. (Cheers.) We wish to form a sailor's self eservative society, where such a tar can come and get s board and tobacco; and who of us would refuse to join ich a society? (None) 1 knew you would answer me. im sure every honest and hardy tar will aid us in this luse, and we will then go on successful. I will now ad you the rules, regulations, constitution, &c., and you in adopt them if you like them. (Cheers.) The President then read th^rules and regulations : the society. It provides that there shall be a resident, Vice President, Secretary, and Treairer ; also a Board of Control, to consist of six, le majority to be seamen?(the entire ought to be amen}?with power to add to their number, and i exnef those negligent, disorderly, or unqualified >r office. The object of the society is to uphold le present rate of wages-^-to assist distressed sealen, and prevent their shipping at a decreased rate -and to relieve the widows and orphans of the lembers, whose husbands or fathers may die, or e shipwrecked at sea. The rules, constitution, c , were adopted unanimously, with a luarty lieer. The President then introduced. Mr. Joskph D. OaI ks?Fellow Seamen?I return you sailor's thanks?brief and hearty, for the honor you hare >ne me to call me to speak to you, and in electing mc n ember of your Executive Committee. 1 will endeavor i do my duty?I am satisfied it is a duty we owe to the amen throughout the world, to rally round the flag ol ib society wluch we have this day formed. In every jrt in which the proceedings of the last meeting were (?d? and I believe there is not a port in the known world it the "New York Herald1' finds it* way to, and is read? r sailors like the man who loves a sailor?(we do.) ? 'ell, sailors will find out that there are persons called lilors who can speak their minds and take measures for eirown protection. Let us rememl>cr the success which is crowned our last meeting, and the character we have lined by our sobriety, steadiness and good conduct, and t this meeting be marked by the same characteristics.?, L-t us prove that we are able to the task which we have idertaken. and the da is uot far distant when a blue cket will be looked upon with respect and favor. The ly, I say, is not far distant when a band of ten thousand ue jackets will rally through New Vork as a band of "others, in temperance, truth and justice?to support the uamen's Self Preservation Society?(cheers.) Therere, say, be steady, and remember, that "United we and, and divided we fall." Bring to us every seaman, hether he be English, Irish, Brotch,' Turk, Greek, Jew Hindoo?(cheers)?and wc will welcome them, so long they are worthy to bear the high honor of being called "Blue Jacket."?(Cheers.) The meeting was next addressed by Mr. William fH!Ti.oeK, who supported the necessity for the forinti/.n ..c .t,.. .......,,?i on bv the seamen every where. He whs listened i with much pleasure by the Jack9. The I'resi?nt then proposed that the meeting should join in nging the Doxology, and to u man the ma>*8 arose id in strange tongues and strange voices, these ardv, weather beaten tars, raised their grateful >ices to the God of the sailor and the landsmen, ving his glory and honor for the aid he had given tem in their honest efforts. The meeting then adiurned. Weekly Periodical Literature.?A great tiange has taken place in the weekly periodica) terature of the day. A few years ngo, the " Allon," a sort of Knglish newspaper, and one or two thers, were the only ones published. Hut the incased appetite for literature, and the general de lopment of literary taste, increased the demand > much, that we have now probably a dozen eekly periodicals published on Saturday and iinday. We have now the " Brother Jonathan," e " New World," the " Albion," the " Anglomerican," besides a number of others peculiarly tended for Sunday. Some of these papers had tained a very large circulation. Hut of late they ?ve, as we have ascertained from returns furnished / several a*^nts in the city and country, fallen oH ry considerably. Probably they have now about le-third of their former circulation. This de ease has been owing to the vastly increused sale the chenn rennhlir:ifinnn of tvnrL? liv T?if>k?na iilwcr, Eugene Sue, and other popular novelists >d writers. In Buffalo and Boston, for instance, e have learned when formerly the merely weekly erary papers sold well, they have now been ulgether cut ofl'by the republications of which from le to five thousand copies are regularly sold, be recent change in the law prohibiting the transition by mail of " extras" by the weekly periodids, has also had a great effect m diminishing eir circulation.
