NKW YORK HERALD. Ktw lark, Ttiiunday, Doitmiber 41, IS43. A* Aui.it Wash id. An active and intfrprming man ! i>. wanted to act agent for the Herald, in Trenton, New Jersey, where he can, with a small capital, establish a business which will prove lucrative Apply at this Office. ?????? Arrival or the Hibernia.?This steamer had j fifteen days passage yesterday. It may be presumed, therefore, that she has arrived at Boston. If so, we shall receive her news early this morning. Nomination* before the Senate ?The extent, \ ariety, and character, aggregate and individual, ol the nominations sent in by the President for confirmation by the Swuate, begin to create' a great deal of enquiry and excitement amongst the various i circles ol ottice-beggars and office-holders and their several coteries. Nor are they uninteresting tu the quiet philosopher who is looking on, for thev present many points of irresistible drollery, and ex- | hibit human nature in a broad and amusing light. Viu.'uifst the list now before the Senate, are cabi- j in t officers?ministers abroad?collectors?aj?i>raisers?naval officers?representatives in fact of! almost ever>' rank and condition amongst the ser- | \ ints of the government and the children of men. A | more curious and motley groupe than this, was probably never before collected and presented to 1 the Senate of the United States for confirmation. They appear to be gathered from the four winds like the big sheet-full of unclean things which St. IVter saw let down from heaven?selected from all j palties, classes and conditions of life; but they' chiefly seem to be the collection of creeping things, ! who have been forced upon the unsuspecting confidence of Captain John Tyler by the extraordinary i events of the last eighteen months, and particularly by the violent, vindictive and persevering abuse h'-aped upon him by the leaders of the whig party, in public and private. A great many of these candidates are whigs ; but the majority have been collected lroin the locofoco ranks in all parts of the Union. Now, in looking over this list of great and small i la/.zarone, who are trembling before the United States Senate, there is presented to our mind one 1 wngle and powerful feature which irresistibly leads ! to one conclusion. In the whole list there is not a ' single man who was not selected by the President 1 under the belief that the individual in question oc-1 cupied an important position in the democratic | party, and who has not, since the last election, tri- j umphantly demonstrated that he was as utterly i powerless as a mushroom, and who has not, in-1 stead of adding popularity to the administration, j contributed essentially to place it beneath the fontetnpt of both parties in the State. We allude, in the expression of this opinion, to such m?n as llenshaw, of Boston?Rantoul, of Boston?Porter, of Pennsylvania?and, in fact, the whole of them on the list?from top to bottom?crosswise and lengthwise?in breadth and thickness. There is not a solitary man in the whole batch of them, who, with all the cunning and trickery, and duplicity, and meanness he has brought into the market, has been able to add a single additional element to give encouragement to John Tyler in persevering j in his present position and policy. Was not this j proved in the election of Blair and Rives 1 Indeed the intrigues during the last year and a j half, by which the President has been deceived? and deceived almost like a child?present richer and more curious scenes of human nature than were evercontemplated byShakspeare himself; and these we mean to write dow n and publish before these nominations are confirmed by the Senate. We beg the Senators, therefore, to suspend all action on these j nominations until we have published the complete history of the subterfuges, and intrigues, and tricks by which these candidates imposed themselves on the President of the United States, and by which 1 they now happen to be before the Senate. And on j tlipop w#? hplinvp tVi*> t'rpcirlonf mau iViinL very much a* we do; and that, if ultimately the i whole batch of them be decapitated, with only ' one here and there saved, as a monument of the destruction of the others, the President will just be as well satisfied as the country will be. It is now full time to have a thorough purgation of these men who have been imposing on the President. I And it shall be done. Tremble, then, ye m^n of intrigue! for behold, the day of tribulation draweth inph?yea, it lias already come. The first sketches which we propose to give will' embrace the movements of Captain Robert Tyler, T. N. Parmlee, John C. Spencer, Edward Curtis, John L. Graham, and Lewis Eaton, both here and in Washington, in the business of j mystifying the President and people. It will be amu- j sing, and will reveal some things to the President J of the United States that he never dreamed of be- ' fore. The American Repibi.icans have another great meeting in the First Ward this evening. Peace Hnd harmony ate to be restored. There is surely no reason why the Rev. David Hale and Mr. Ralph should be at dagger's point. Let the friends <>t the cause come out openly, and like men, and let all quarrelling be avoided. All who aspiru to nrtice in the ward should submit thrmselves openly to the people, and let the ballot box decide. That's the best and only proper test. Locofocos j iind Whigs would be very much rejoiced to see feud and disunion in this party It has been in this way that former attempts to reform the agf h<i\c failed. We shall, most ccrtainly, discountenance all divisions and quarrels, come from what quarter they may. Coine, boy?, don't let the devil iii any shape, get among you. Mysteries of New York?Trial of Moses Y Beach.?Th** trial of Moses for a libel on his own brother-in-law began yesterday, and will be continned to-day. Some rare disclosures are expected ill the Court of Sessions. Singular Movement in Politics.?We understand that the ruuip of the Calhoun party in this city, has found a resting place in the Evening Post. Unless Mr. Van Buren looks well to lus organg here, they will play strange tunes by and by? but that's his business, not ours. What's thf. Matter'!?We understand that the Calhoun men yesterday put an injunction on ih?nr u ( :?ut nutMir I If of klurtfj htr I nh n ) \fnm<Ar/l I and published by Mr. Clayton. The name press ' has been used to support, in succession, the caus?nt Van Buren, Calhoun, and Cass. It inav come out for Clay or the devil next. Thk Bowuno Green Fot*rrT4JN.?Wc published some days since, under the head of our law report?, ihe case of Charles IJ. Laverich vs. William K Wilnierding, in which the former sued for damages done to his cellar and stock at No. SO B?Mvrr street, by an overflow of water alledged to be irom the waste pipe of the fountain in the Bowling <',irpn. on the first day of its playing. 1 h<* <*-. occupied several days, and yesterday the jury returned a verdict in favor of the plaintiff*for #1008 II damages, and costs. The defendant was one o! ihe petitioner* to the Common Council for the erection of the fountain. We believe there are several other suits |>ending of the same nature. Si,>i\f.rs CArrt'KKD.?The schooner Ida, arrived last night from Sietrit Leone, reports that previous !< her sailing the British brig of war Spy had captured threr Brnr.illian slavers on the Alricrncoast. I < >n< of ih** slavers had five hundred slaves on board The slaves were all liberated, and the vessels condemned and sold. Kr<>v Ai.bafiv.?'We are again indebted to Captain Filch, ot the steamer Eureka, for Albany j paper-, via the Housatonic Kailroad. They are ot ! Tuesday afternoon. No news. Hi dson IUvkk is open to Catskill. I'omkroy <V Co. now run their express over the MoUMtonie railroad. They leave here in th?* rum m*. ami reach Albany in the evening ot the same dnv Ot.k Bull's T)epartt;kk for Baltimore ani> THE SotTTH?His MmnhI I-VK DESPONDENCY.?Yesterday alt*'inoon tins remarkable genius, and singularly amiable man, departed in the afternoon train from this city to Baltimore, under deep and poignant feelings of des|>ondency and grief. During a week past, be has been under a high state of excitement, produced by the operation of a contract w hich a person by the name of Schubert, a Hebrew of the Hebrews, holds over him. We understand that it was owing to the arrangement ot .Mr. Schubert, by which Ole Bull was compelled tobreak hisengagcnientsto the people of Baltimore?a circumstance which has touched his sensitive heart to the very quick. Indeed Ole Bull has been as terribly annoyed at the manner in which this coutract has been held over his head?nay his very soul?by Schubcrt, as Faust was by that of Mephistopheles, or poor Antonio, the Merchant of Venice, was by the bond of Shylock the Jew. We trust that some beautiful and spirited Portia of Balliniore or the gallant south will redeem the great and amiable genius from the bond that is shaken daily over his very existence and being. The other night an attempt was made io itrrt si me artist at tne iistor House, in ilie midst of one of his tits of despondency, for Ole Hull says "1 am alway in de heav-ven above or in de odder place below"?but it roused his wounded spirit into the regions of sublimity, and in one fearful bound he scattered the officers like chaff' before him. Judge Vandelpoel, of this city, has given it us his opinion that the contract is defective and invalid, and cannot be executed m this country at all ?whatever it may be 111 Hamburg or any other place beginning with an H. We trust that Ole Bull may get out of these difficulties better than Faust, and as well as Antonio, tor they prey on his sensitive spirit to a most extraordinary extent. He is unquestionably the most extraordinary genius on the violin that ever appeared in the world?a very Shakspeare in his line, and no mistake. We would, therefore, advise Mr. Schubert as a friend (and Mr. is a man of sense), to terminate at once and amicably his singular " bond" on the soul and violin of (Me Bull. The sympathy of every gallant, youthful, and enthusiastic spirit of the south, both male and female,' will be excited in favor of this inapproachable genius, and it is dangerous in that region of the burnurg sun and more burning soul, to act as he might do in the cold regions of the north. Ole Bull is not a mere violinist?he is a poet?nn orator?a genius? a man?a warm hearted, high souled, honest man, of the purest elements of earth and heaven. He wants to breathe the free breath of high heaven in mis irtiui 01 uoeny ana wiiu cniiiusiasiu?ana lie will do it. Moke of the Musical Mama.?There seems no possibility of escape from this mania. We can't for the life of us get rid of it. Our destiny appears to be to be driven music-mad, and kept music-mad. Well, we suppose we may as well resign ourselves to our fate. Wallace is determined to ullow no abatement of the enthusiasm created by the magician who has just left us for a season, lie gives his concert this evening at Washington Hall, and invites all the musical critics of the city to come and hear him. The Irish ought to support Wallace for he belongs to them ; but they hav'nt got soul enough to do it. But the French, German, and all the lovers of music in the city will crowd Washington Hall to-night. Madame Sutton appears and sings ; and Signor Casella, the great performer on the violincello, also. This is v. great combination of talent, and we exj.ect a terrible crowd. So, come, let us go and see what rank we must give Wallace in the kingdom of haimony, genius, and enthusiasm. Italian Opera.?If an Italian Opera is to take place here, we hope it will be composed of the artists we have before mentioned, to be added to the company that perfermed at Niblo's. The addition of Madame Sutton, Borghese and Castellan, with Antognini and De Begnis, can alone carry out, with brilliant success, such operas as the public will require at the hands of Simpson, or any other manager. If it is intended that the same company that performed at Niblo's for fifty cents, shall play for one dollar, with the addition of Borghese only, the manager who does that will find himself mistaken. The public taste for music is thoroughly aroused, and now is the time to form such a troujf as we have spoken of, and which would l>e superior to that at the Havana, and equal to London and Paris. It is useless to attempt any thing short of this?the public will not support aii opera unless it is equal to what they have seen in Europe; and, more so, as the talent is here to com|x se it, and requires merely the enterprise of a good manager, or the coBitiination of the artists themselves. Such a troupe as can expect a brilliant success in New \ork, must not think ot visiting Philadelphia, Boston, and other places; it is too expensive, and their strength will prevent the necessity by attracting the musical gentry of those cities to New York Such a company under a pro(>er management might, in a few years, every one of tlieni, realize a fortune between New York. New Orleans, and the Havana. It has been sain that the same troupe that performed at Niblo's was the Havana troupe; ibis is not the case, as Ober, Sutton, ana Borghese, were prima donnas, and Salyatori and (Yconi primo bassos. Whether it is Simpson, or whether it is Palmo, let there be a good oi>era, combining ..n ...i..... . i?. .i... ,...i.i:? j?_i:_? an mc iai' in , ici iiic j'uiuii uremic iu stumnji I anything else, and the thing is done, and an Italian company fixed in New York. If managers will not let the artist* themselves combine, for the nightly receipt# will average two-thirds more, let the artists be engaged monthly as in the Havana; there #800 per month is the highest pay to a prima donna, and so in proportion to the other part of the troupt. No manager ought to entertain a proposition for anything beyond this. Why should an artist attempt to ini|>ose by requiring weekly what in the llavana is their monthly pay T This system of paying all to one star is a fraud upon the public who pay their money, and ought to repel such an invasion of their rights. Lets have a London and Paris troupe, or none. English Defaulters.?It appears that this country is not the only one that is blessed with a race of men called defaulters. In Canada, according toth? Montreal Herald, there are quite a number. We give their names:? By a paper just laid before Parliament, it appears that the sum of jC8,I Vi is due by the following persons to the country: R. H. Hamilton, naval officer. Quebec, l is. 8d.? Kdward Macgauran, registrar and treasurer of the Trinity House, Montreal, ?*!%) lis.-J.?John Burwell, collector, f'ort Burwell, ?14'' h. 4d.? luhn ( hisholm, collector, Burlington, 7s. t< i Anthony Manahan, colJoctor, Toronto, i.'43ti 13s. nJ.?It.

AnJerton, collector, Sandwich, ?196 16s. !>d. As the Canada papers seem to delight in a defalcation per(>etrated on this side of the lines, we hope that they will try to account for the above in Home satisfactory way. It is not to he supposed that the above philosophers were dishonest. Alabama Legislature.?TUe Senate was organized bv appointing Mr. Terry, of Limestone, President, Captain Win. J. Couch, of Wetumpka Secre tary, S. H Clithcial, Assistant Secretary, and A. R. Tho! ma*, Doorkeeper. In the Mouse, Andrew B. Moore, of Perry, wax elected Speaker; Joseph Phelan ?u elected Principal Clerk without oppositton. A. B. Clitheral was elected AMirtant Clerk; W. C. Bibb, Kngrossing Clerk, and J. II. Owen, Doorkeeper. Stkamboat Hi unf.d.? We learn from the Charleston Courier tnat the stennihoat Kershaw, with (Hit) bale* of cotton on board, was totally destroyed by fire on the night of the 14th inst., whilst lying at the plnntation of Mr J.C. Singleton, about 30 miles below Columbia, with the entire cargo, at which place she had communced loading. A Nuisance?Who Pays t?Who Receives!? Mr. Bknnett?1 wish very tnnch to know whether our sapient servants, the Common Scoundrels, 1 bef their pwdom, Comeil, or ihe able, ui-, 'entive, honorable itnd incomparable lnspec1 -r <4 the Sixth Ward, has let or leased ili< *ide walk in Centre street near Walker street, to th> lumber merchants in that delightful avenu* and how much the rent is, and who pockets ihe rent 1 That the lumber merchants have taken possession and keep it, too, there is occular and physical evidence from barked shins and torn garments. Who reeeives the rent for the Noah's arks, (charcoal boxes) which encumber our sidewalks? Can any one tell or guess \ For what purpose were Street and Ward Inspectors appointed ' Was it to enforce the ordinances, or toremurate them for the dirty work they did Mt Tammanv H ill and other political dens, and at the elections i Will any one divulge ! <4t cro Great Meeting In the Bxehange. The meet ing called at Colyer'B Saloon yesterday afternoon, to expose the various firms of swindlers that have infested the mercantile community, was largely attended. Ai.kxanhek Ka.mhay, perfumer, of Maiden lane, was called to the chair, and Win. H. Mkkks appointed Secretary. The meeting being railed to order, Emm ii K. C.uti' was called upon to address the audience relative to the objects of the meeting, lie briefly alluded to the facts that had been exhibited in the columns of the New York llerald on this subject, and concluded by reading the article contained in that p?l>er of Thursday last, in which a full exposition of the practices of these gangs of common swindlers was made manifest. On concluding, numbers of jiersons came forward and presented their claims, and detailed the manner they had been swindled by ccitain parties whose names were given, but are suppressed by us, as the District Attorney might order us to be indicted for libel, as we once were for giving publicity to a legal document recorded in the 1'iiited States Bankrupt Court. The publication would alt>o interfere with the due administration of public justice, as the parties implicated might thus escape trom the hands of the police. An arrest having taken place in the following case, we give it publici J~...:i~J u. (>, us ueiuueu uv inn' ui uic 111111 <11 uiu meeting-? New York. June 20th, 1843. Mr. S. D. JONKB Bought of T. & J. S. DAVKNPORT, Importers and wholesale dealers in China, Glass and K.arthenware, No. 174 Washington street, near Courtlandt. Thomas Davenpoht, ) Jamo S. 1) tvt.M'uit r, S To Merchandise as per bill rendeml, filoti <?> Four mouths. Mr. Joke* stated that at the time the above bill was purchased, he was worth at least ten thousand dollars clear of the worlu, and out of debt; that he owned a church in Trenton, N. J., ahd a large and valuable tract of land in Pennsylvania, together with a house and lot, or houses and lots, in the upper part of the city. Jones referred us to one 8. D. Pierson, who corroborated his statements, and remarked that "Mr. Jones' only fault was that he was loo honnt." Jones also gave a lirm in William street, calling themselves Gardiner Perkins it Co., as reference. The Gardiner I'erkins is never to be seen, the compauy is represented by a man called Schafer, who made statements similar ' to those of Pierson. The goods were sold Jones o> a credit of four months ; the note was sent to Milford, Pa., his place of business,for payment, but it was not paid. Mr. Jones was not to be found?the store was in possession of a man called Burrell from whom we could learn nothing satisfactory regarding the condition of Jones' affairs. Upon examination we found that Jones had confessed judgment to a Captain Peckham for two thousand two hundred and sixty dollars, which was over the amount of stock in the store. We have also learned that Jones mortgaged the said church in Trenton for "(li,&00,it being more in reality than it is worth. The church was mortgaged, and the judgment confessed shortly after the goods were sold, and before any payments were due. Regarding the land in Pennsylvania, and the houses and lots in this city, from the information we can gain, we believe that they were never in his possession and that these state-nciitswere false. Jones is now in the "Tombs," awaiting His trial "for obtaining goods under false pretences he was arrested and confined by a warrant which was issued after the tirand Jury found a true bill against hte. Pierson who was not only his accomplice in making false representations, but in assisting to purchase the foods, he., thought proper to made his escape immediatey upon the arrest of Jones, and cannot at this time be found.

Meettnc; of the Bar.?Yesterday morning a very large meeting of the members of the bar was held in the Common Council Chamber, to adopt suitable measures to manifest their respect for the memory of the late Hon. Smith Thomson, Judge oi me oupreiTie \^ouri, uuu iu mime arrangemenu* for attending the funeral on Saturday, from his late esidence at Poughkeepsie. Chief Justice Jones presided, and the Hon. Ogden Edwards, late Judge, acted as Secretary. Seth 1'. Staples. Esy., addressed the meeting on the occasion of tlte assembling of the members of the legal profession, which was in consequence of the melancholy intelligence of the death of Judge Thompson. He then offered the following resolutions, with some introductory remarks upon the eminent virtues and christian character of the greal man whose loss they were assembled to mourn. He had known him for many years. It was before him that In- tried his first cause, and the last time when that Judge presided at the bench, he (Mr. S.) had the honor of being engaged as counsel in the last cause he tried. He thought that it was incumbent on the bar to manifest the resuect they entertained for the Judge and the man, (>y some record of their feelings. He had, accordingly, prepared for their approval, a series of resolutions, which he now submitted:? Whereas, We have received the melancholy intelligence of the death of the Hon. Smith Thompson, one of the Justices of the Supreme Court of the t inted States, at his residence in Poughkeepsie, on the evening of the ISth instant Resofred, That we deeply feel and most sincerely lament the death of thi3 just anil upright man and eminent judge. Mis diligence in the despatch of business?his impartiality and intlexililej integrity?his firmness and humanity?^endeared him to us all. His ready apprehension of the'truth, and great (Clearness and power of intellect, during a long judicial life, commanded and received our most profound respect, and entitle his memory to the highest veneration. The high judicial character which he attained, was alike honorable to himself and beneficial to the community. Hi-?olved, That while the private character an.I eminent public services of Judge Thompson, through a long life. ;ilmo?t exclusively devoted to the public interests, have justly entitle! him to the grateful remembrance of his countrymen, they present peculiar claims to the respect and admiration of the profession upon which they have reiPscted so much honor. Kntering as lie did, upon public life at an early age, a representative in the legislature of our State shortly thereafter, called to the omce of a .fudge, and subsequently of Thief Justice of the Supreme Court ofthis State which stations he adorned for a |>eriod of seventeen voari?then filling the exalted post of Secretary of the Navy, during the administration of President Monroe?and finally. for the last twenty years of his life, occupying** most distinguished rank in the judiciary of the L'nion, and sustaining with his peculiar vigor of miud and integrity of purpose, the interpretations of the constitution which have commanded for that august tribunal the veneration of the country - he has, in each successive gradation, sustained himself with unsurpassed ability and integrity; leaving to his profession and to the communit) the enduring recollection of a well s|ient life, and of an honorable fame. The bar of this, the first city in his native State, deeply cherishing his memory, and justly appreciating the extent of the bereavement which they, in common with their fellow citizens, have sustained in his death, enjoy at least a melancholy satisfaction in the retrospect of nil life and services, and proudly point to them as bright examples for the imitation of those who are hereafter to labor in the field, in which he has secured the most honorable and enduring rewards. Resolved, That as a mark of 0111 resperl for the memory ofthe deceased, we. will wear the usual badge of mourning for thirtv days. Hesolved, That the Judges of the several Court* in this city, the l.'nited States District Attorney, and the following named gentlemen?Seth P. Staples. Hugh Maxwell, Benjamin K. Butler. David S. Jones, Samuel A. Koot, John L. Lawrenvo, Wm. Samuel John'on, Joseph Blunt, Ambrose I,. Jordon, David Oraham?together with the President and Secretary of the meeting, be a committee to attend the funeral of the deceased, and to aasure the family and friends of the deceased, how deeply we sympathise with them in ftie loss they have sustained, and that a copy of these resolutions l?e presented to his bereaved family. Jitdgr IJetts next addressed the meeting, and in a short review of his association w ith the honored dead. He dwelt with much force and earnestness on the many noble qualities which had endeared him to him as a friend, a Judge, and an honorahle man Throughout a period of 1H years, in f which they had l>e*n associated on the bench of the U. S. Circuit Court.the utmost harmony had always I existed in their opinions, and lie treasured up tne ; remembrance of that mind which leflected such honor on the bench, auch credit upon the legal profession, and auch a glory upon the institution- : ol the country, in the service of which years IibiI 1 I?een spent by mm, with the lull confidence of it- i tntesnien, and in the full enjoyment of the highest ; honors, which a miud so noble mid virtuous, could j desire. He felt that the resolution* just read, were hut 11 just tribute to his memory, anu he respectfully seconded their adoption. The Hon. KuwABDf and Benjamin K Butlek also paid a passing tribute to the many virtue* of the deceased, and hiii uniform Christian character and d?]>ortmcnt as a law yer, a judge, and a mini. rrevioun to the resolution beings put to the vote, Mr. Joseph Blunt olfered the following ;? Resolved, That a committee ot three be appointed by the chair, to make the necessary arrangements for an eu- | logy, to be hatwftar delivered, on the life and charucter , of the late Hon. Smith Thompson. David Uhaimm, Jr., Esq., ottered the following:? Resolved, That the Chairman and Secretary be reques ted to communicate a copy of the proceedings of this ' meeting to the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, and the District Judge of the United States for this Circuit, with a respectful request | that they may be laid Ixilore the courts over which they ; respectively preside. The Chair then took the vote on the resolutions offered | by .Mr. Staples, together with the two preceding resolutions, and tney were unanimously adopted. Messrs. Joseph Blunt, Benjamin F. Butler, and Hugh Maxwell, were appointed as the committee to carry out the resolution ottered by Mr. Blunt. Chiki Justice Jo.m.j, in a low and tremulous voice, delivered a feeling eulogy upon his friend and fellow Judge, whose course he traced in all its bearings, both public, judicial and private. He w as an honest citizen, an eminent Judge, and an indulgent friend, and as he had walked righteously in the sight of his fellow men, conforming in all things to the commands of his (ireut Master : he had now gone to reap the sure rewards, which a lite of trustful hope and confidence in the justice of his <>od, enabled him, at the last moment of his race, to look forward to calmly and joyfully. Jt'doc Bktts informed the members of the bar, not specially invited, that a respectful invitation had been extended bv the family, through him. to all the members of the legal profession to attend the funeral on Saturday. The meeting then adjourned, City Tract Society?Annual Meeting. Tlie seventeenth anniversary of the New York City Tract Society (and jtwenty-first of the female branch), was held last evening at seven o'clock, at the Tabernacle, Broadway,5 for the purpose of the report of the committee's proceedings in the past year being presented, and the transaction of the usual business. The Rev. Jaines Miln?r, 1). 1)., President of the Society, was appointed

to take the chair, but he was prevented by illness, and in his absence the Rev. Dr. Krcbs presided. Mr. Wm. Walkf.k, the proceedings having been oi>ened in the usual manner by prayer and supplication, read the treasurer's statement of his accounts for the past year. Omitting details, the aggregate receipts had been $10,012 43, including &I,151 6*2 from the female branch, and the expenditure #9,982 82, leaving a balance in hand of $29 61. The report of the committee of the female branch was next read, which spoke very highly of the benefits arising from the colporteur systems in spreading religious knowledge in no less than nineteen different states and territories, particularly in the new ones; of these colporteurs, forty were Americans and fourteen German. The Rev. Isaac Orchard then read the annual report, which, after some appropriate introductory observations, stated that the society now sustained 14 missionaries, including one to the German pop ulation, and another, appointed during the year, to the shipping department. The average number of visits during the year had heen 1003; but, notwithstanding the vast increase in the population during the last six years, chiefly of persons in the poorer class, neither the missionaries nor the visitors had increased in number. More missionaries, however, could the readily procured if the means of sustaining tlieni were provided, and on this ground the report appealed to the public for more efficient aid. In addition to the monthly distribution of tracts when visiting from house to house, the prisons, hospitals, the shipping, and the adjacent islands had been supplied with them. The number of tracts distributed in the ^ear had been 732,155, making 3,425,781 pages?chiefly from the valuable publications of the American Tract Society. Foreieners, too, who desired it, had been supplied with them in their own languages. It also appeared that 93ti Bibles and 558 *1 estaments had been supplied ; 4796 volumes lent from the ward libraries, Ki children gathered into Sabbath, and 315 into public schools, 145 persons into Bible classes, 904 induced to attend places of worship, 706 temperance pledges obtained, and 1433 district prayer meetings held. In conclusion, the committee requested contributions to carry on their operations. The Rev. Dr. Lcwm, of the Wcsleyan Chapel, Vestry street,moved the first resolutions, namely,that the reports nrsi reau lie auu|iicu, turn puuieu uuuui iuc ujictiiuii ui the board. The motion was seconded by the lie*. James L. Hodge, of the First Baptist Church, Brooklyn. The Bev. Dr. Bcudder, Missionary from India, followed, strongly urging the necessity there existed for active lay assistance in forwarding the great design of the Society. At least a thousand additional visitors, he remarked, were necessary at this moment. The Rev. George B. Cheever, of the Allen street Presbyterian Church, who was evidently laboring under indisposition, next addressed the meeting.?If he were, h? said, in the habit of making apologies, he certainly should feel bound to do so now, inasmuch as he felt so unwell as to be altogether inadequate to the duty of addressing so large an assemblage. He had intended to have spoken of the nature and system of the gospel as a voluntary fystcm?of the Society's efforts as voluntary efforts, and to have compared this system in some minuteness with that despotic system which had prevailed for ages in one direction, making even what was called "the Church," but a vast Juggernaut, to be dragged by its letters across the prostrate neck of men's uoerties. This, however, he trusted in Ood had gone by, and he should simply dwell for a moment upon the admirable nature of the perionol individual effort in which this society engaged those who took part in its great work of mercy. It might be said that, standing upon so noble, so proud, so generous, so liberal a ground as it occupied, tne work must be easy; but it was difficult for this very reason, becauife of the absolute simplicity of nurpose and singleness of heart required, and it was also difficult because it was personal effort in lanes and alleys, in shops and houses in garrets and in cellars, in the streets and by the sea side, anywhere and everywhere?so that anywhere and every where the heart mint be in unison with efforts, ready to carry the individual forward in them, not ar a matter ol mere duty, but an with the wannest feelings of the heart. It was neither speech making nor speecn hearing, nor anything that depended upon the impulse of public svm pathy, 01 the sweep of a particular current, or the will of a great mighty hierarchy. It was the hidden, unseen, humble, persevering, prayerful, individual effort? (Cheers.) How self denying, but how beautiful ! How lovely! how excellent! And how admirable was this society in developing such energetic assistance, unobtrusively, with such simplicity of means. This was the true unity* of the church?individual labor for Christ. Ave, and it was admirable in its effect upon individual churches for personal effort to bring men to the Saviour was just what was necessary to keep alive the spirit of Christ in the soul. That that was greatly neglected, there could be 110 doubt, and hence it was mainly that the pulse of spiritual life beat so slow and feeble in our souls. Nothing was more necessary to the safety aud happiness of the Christian's spiritual state than personal effort for the good of others, It was exercise of tnis kind which was needed (and the only thing which was needed) to make many a spiritual dyspeptic a healthy, vigorous, joyous, and animated follower of the Lord Jesus. The reverend gentleman then proceeded to show that great promises and encouragements are connected with personal efforts to win souls to Christ. In the citing he enlarged upon the text. "He that goeth forth weeping, bearing precious seed,shall comeforth rejoicing,bringing sheaths with him." Mr. Cheever's speech, brief as it was. and diverted from his original purpose, was received with great applause. A hymn was then snug, and the benediction having been pronounced, the meeting separated. Tiif. 17. P.

The Italian Company now performing at the National, will start immediately for New York,where they will play at the Park, in conjunction with Mile. Llorghese. Last evening they performed "Norma" to a full.and very fashionable house.? ll was beautifully executed, considering the insufficiency of the orchestra, and the few rehearsals which were able to be given Signor La Manna deserves great credit for his skill and patience. Mine. ( orsini, the Prima Donna, sang admirably, executing the most difficult parts witlj ease.? It is a pity she is rather cool. Mine. Majocehi's voice is ajways acknowledged to be very sweet, and indeed it is so. It would be very difficult to find a better Adalgisa. The duett with Mine. Corbini was warmly applauded. Sig. Perozzi, the tenor, (and the true support of the company,) has been admired by every one. His ;u = ?,..wi..r Mia action is noble. In his cavatina, duvtt, and trio above all, he was rapturously upplauded. In Philadelphia and Baltimore he produced the same effect.

TWENTY-EIGHTH CONGRESS. KIRST SESSION. Senate. Tuesday, Dec. 19,1843. Mr. Wood bridge presented a petition for a mail route in Michigan He .also introduced his bill relative to certain internal improvements in that State ?which was read twice and referred. Navy Yard at Memphis.?Mr. Foster introduced his bill to establish a Navy Yard or Depot, at or near Memphis on the Mississippi river in Tennessee, and asking for the same an appropriation of $100,000?read twice and referred. Workmen i* Distrkhs.?Mr. Merrick presented a memorial from a number of the workmen in the Navy Yard here at Washington, who represent themselves as in great distress with tlieir families, in consequence of being thrown out of employment by the discontinuance of the u-nrk unon certain iron vessels. The anDronriations had Tailed, ami consequently the work had stopped. Mr. Merrick spoke with much feeling upon their case, which he represented as one of peculiar hardship at this inclement season of the year, with families to support. An appropriation must be made?the work must go on, and he only asked for an early appropriation, to enable the work to go on and meet the necessities of those worthy people. The subject was referred to the Committee on 1< inance Compromise Acr?McDvkfee's Bill.?Mr. McDufl'ee introduced the following bill, which was read twice and referred:? A Bill to revive the act of 2d of March, 1833, usually called the " Compromise Act," and to modify the existing duties upon foreign imports in conformity to its provisions. Sec, 1. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress* assembled?that so much of the existing law imposing duties upon foieign imports, as provides that duties ad valorem on certain commodities shall be assessed upon an assumed minimum value, be, and the same is hereby repealed, and that said duties be hereafter assessed on the true value of such commodities. Sec. 2. And be it further enacted, that in all cases in which the existing duties upon any imported commodity exceeds 3d per cent on the value thereof, said duty shall be hereafter reduced to 30 per cent ad valorem. Sec. 3. And be it further enacted, that from and aAer the 31st day of December next, all duties upon foreign imports shall be reduced to 26' per cent, and from and.after the 3l*t December, 1S44, to 20 per cent ad valorem. Mr. Kino made a few remarks in support of the Bill? he thought the present Tariff must be reduced, and desired that the whole subject might be taken up and calmly considered. He concluded with some remarks respect ing me propriety 01 introducing me 11111 in uio oenuie rather than in the House. Mr. McDwrri* laid a Bill to raise revenue cannot originate in the Senate, hut a Bill to reduce the revenue (as thin is) may originate in the Senate. Mb. Eva*? thought it was a Bill to raise revenue, and therefore could not originate in the Senate ; and at the proper time he would undertake to demonstrate that position. * Lamd Ci.aim.?A Bill was read twice and referred, to adjust certain private land claims between Mississippi and Louisiana. Mr. Walker gave notice of a bill to increase the pay of certain officers of the Navy. Red River.?A joint resolution was introduced to provide for the survey of the mouth of Red River. Read twice, and on motion of Mr. Barrow referred to the Committee on Commerce. Mr. WooDut'rv's resolution was then passed, asking for information ofthe Department respecting the value o? imports and exports in cerain years. Mr. Woodbury is doubtless preparing himself to meet the discussion of the tariff question, when it shall properly come before the Senate. Executive Session.?The Senate here went into session upon Executive business lor a short time, and then Adjourned. Home of Bepresentatlvea. The Journal having been rend, a number of members rose to address the House. Mr. Wise moved that the President's Message be referred to the Committee of the Whole. Objections were made to the motion, but upon division the rules were suspended and it prevailed. The House then went into Committee of the Whole, Mr. Hopkins of Va. in the Chair. Mr. \Visr of Vs. moved the reference of the Message by resolution to the appropriate Standing Committees of the House, including all the branches in a series attached to the main resolution. All that related to Foreign Affairs (including Texes) be referred to the Committee on Foreign Affairs. Inilian Affairs were referred tothe Indian Committee. The Treasury to Ways and Means?Pre-emptions to Public Lands?Arsenals, Army, tVc, 'he Comtnittee on Military Affair*?Organization ot Militia to Committee on Militia?Navy and Improvements connected with it to Naval Coiiiiinttee ?I'oKt Ofiie to Post.Oftiee Committee?Economy, fee. to Committee on Public Expenditures and Committees whose business it is to see to the expenses of the government. A debate arose upon the proposition to refer to the Committee on Commerce the vexed question connected with internal improvements by improving harbors and rivers. Messts. Barnard, Wise and others took part in this discussion. Mr. Kennedy, of Indiana, participated in the disussion for the purpose of saying that he wus glad the House had found out there was such a place as the West. But he should say to gentlemen from other sections of the country, as a Western man, "Stand oft." The West had become an empire of herself, and was strong enough to take care of herself, fchc would do so, too, and in her own way. Mr. Hoi.mks, of S. C., continued the debate. The West, lie said, was growing with a rapidity that no man had an idea of, but it was important tor them to rely upon their own resources. Mr. Wn.kins, oi'Penn., spoke also generally of the importance of the question. Mr. Ukaiidsi.ey of N. Y., asked what the dis cussion hud to do with the question before the House. What had the Hudson to do with the Mississippi 1 [The member from Indiana had snoten with disparagement of the Hudson.] What !iad it to do with the tariff! [Mr. Holme# had alluded to this subject.] The question before the House was a simple one to refer to the Committee on Commerce a certain portion of the Message. Mr. Thomasson of Ky., was disposed to enlarge the resolution of the gentleman from Kentucky by referring the whole subject of inland navigation to the Committee on Commerce. Mr. Hardin of III., a >"*w member and an earnest, zealous speaker, spoke warmly for the interests >f the West. The West had grown so much, and ler interests were so many, that she demanded ind had a right to demand more attention to her welfare. Mr Bowi.in of Mo. also made a speech in favor of the Went, ami the debate became very much one for Ilunk'im. Questions of strict construction, the tariff iind internal lmirovement, were involved in it. As the debate enlarged, he contest was to which committee the subject should tie referred. Mr Bahwahd, after some remarks about the iml>ortance of improving the Hudson, cUimed that the old internal Improvement work* belonged to the Committer if Ways ami Means. Mr. B. wai twice accused of being liostile to the West, first by the member from Indiana, anil tecondly bv Mr. Brinkerholf of Ohio. He was charged with o)i|iosing western interests?with being hostile to the west. He said he hail breathed no such thought. He liail sanl no such thing. He denied the accusation. Mr. Bai.nKKHHorr made the amtruir honorable and received the disclaimer; but the other accuser was silent. Mr. Wi"?ih*or (of the Committee on Commerce), said '.ie could not see why so much importance should be at1 -ached to the Committee who were to have charge of the inhject. He willing that the Committee on Itoads ' ind Canals should have charge of the subject or any other Committee. Mr. W. rose to repel the charge or Intimation that the'west hud received no favor from other sec} tions of the country. It was not no, nnd the roll of proj ceilings would show a truth he had heard some ) e;irs dnee from a Massachusetts Senator, now no longer a member of that laxly, that then- was not n western mea tire that had ever passed Congress which had not eithei originated with or been sustained by eastern votes. He hail the autnority of a westeru man of the Senate, for saving I that there was not a western measure which could have been paused but by northern votes. When, he would ask, lor he had been driven to the question, had Westeru interests l>eensustained by Southern men? And yet Southern men had said (Mr. Holmes for example) that the mothers of the States?the old Colonial States?-hail been poisoning the West. Mr. Holmes, when making this remark, alluded to the tariff. Mr. Winthorp's reply to this |>osition was happy, and of a character to show that in such a question the interests of the country werejthe same.? And so they were in reference to works of internal improvement! The lakes and rivers of the west were all American. They belonged to the North as well as to tkn West, and to all in common. Mr. DocuLAst, of lllinoif, rebuked Mr. Kennedy, of Indiana, lor the manner in which he had thrown off all dependence or interest upon other sections of the country. Krom the remarks which had been made to-day by gentlemen from the South and the North, them was no reason for doubting the friendship of these sections of the country for the West. He did not lightly esteem snch regard. The West nsked only what was rignt, and would give in the spirit she asked.' Mr. Win thought there had been some bidding and tendering in benalf of Western interests during the debate, ana he thought, too, that injustice had been done to the Old Dominion by some of the representatives from the West. She had given of her substance to the West. Her own dominion made up the West, and yet she was accused of being indifferent to Western interests. The Committee here rose in the midst of a spirited debate, and the House, at half-past three o'clock, adjourned. Bale of Htocks at Philadelphia.
