NEW YOliK HERALD. N?w l?rk, I'linrmlay, OMruibrr AH, 1?13. I'ruipri l4 of lh? WUltf Hurt> ? Kourlerlaui a Powerful Kli iurnl of Succcu. It it b?? true that "misfortune makes us acquaint* e ! with strange bed-fellows," it is no less certain that, in the struggle for prosperity, we are often aided by extraordinary influences, of whose assistance we had never so much us dreamed ill any ol tiiir inspiring visions of the future. Thus it is now with gallant Harry of the West. He now finds himself where he is with all imaginable anxiety ! jtfeparing tor the coming contest, girt ubout and I supported by u very remarkable influence, which no one can overlook, and which lias been developing itself gradually, in very strong and marked features, during the last few years, and chiefly through the agency ol the yew York Tribune, conducted by Mr. Philosopher Greeley, who lias been acting as nurse to this new creation?a dry-nurse to j be sure, bui a uiost attentive, affectionate, and faithful dry-nurse. We allude, us most of our readers ,. r,.pin? fn th#? irr#>Ht nf Fmiriorium ii urtiul transcendentalism?or antediluvian ulU Mtive industry?or the transition period of civilji ition, or whatever else you please to call it. According to all appearances this new element of politics and civilization will enter very largely into the next Presidental contest. Indeed the election ol Mr. Clay is thus rendered quite certain. The alliance of this new system of philosophy and its distinguished leaders, dry-nurses, and supporters, will unquestionably carry Clay against all the forces which Van Buren, the devil, and all their allies,can luiiig into the field. (From the Canto*) (Ohio) Repository.) We t'eel pleasure in announcing that the American I'halaux has contracted for about -i000 acres of land in Belmont county, Ohio, known as the Pultney Farm, lying along the Otiio river, seven or eight miles below Wheeling, and that sufficient meant are already pledged to remove all doubts us to |the formation of an association us oon as the domain can be prepared for the reception of the members. The tract selected is tw o and a half miles in length from north to south, and of somewhat irregular breadth by reason of the curvature* of the Ohio river, which forms its eastern ooundary. It contain.* boo acres ol bottom land, .ill cleared ami under cultivation?the residue is hill land nt a fertility truly surprising. and indeed incredible to ; rsons unacquainted with the hills of that particular neighborhood. Of the hill lands about 2.i0 acres are cleared, and about 3!K) acres more have been partially cleared so as to answer imperfectly Cor sheep pasture ? The residue is lor the most part well timbered, the predominating timber being sugar maple and white oak, with a considerable mixture of locust and black walnut. There are two frame dwelling houses, and ten log houses, mostly with shingle roofs, upon the premises ; none of them, however, are of much \ alue except for temporary purposes. There is a young- Orchard of Crab-apples on the Domain, very thriving, and just beginning to be productive. Cider tnaJe from these Apples sells at the markets on the liver, at $4 per barrel. There are also two orchards of commou Apple trees, now in a bearing state; one ofthein however, is old, and beginning to decline. Another large orchard of selected fruit, consisting of small trees, was set out upou the tract last spring. The tract, lying on both sides of the 40th degree of north latitude, is on the same parallel with Philadelphia. Hence the winters there will be much milder and shorter than in New York and the New Kngland States. (j?:>>.HAi. Pus.?Those persons who have already avowed themselves willing to co-operate in this experi mint as members, are mostly citizens of the Western Reserve-intelligent, industrious, enterprising and frugal. Between Civilization and Association, there must be a transition period, which, without being exempt from the evils of the former, will be attended with many peculiar to itself. But, though the true system of Association cannot he adopted at present, yet it is contemplated immediately to suhjtvt industry to an organization?to introduce at once those elements of a true industrial mechanism, which even Civilisation admits of, and of which it sometimes avails it- 1 iietf, especially for purposes of destruction. Perhaps our oliject cannot'be more intelligibly explained than by stating that it is proposed to organize an Industrial Army, wiuch, instead ot ravaging and desolating the earth, like the armies of Civilization, shall clothe it luxuriantly and beautifully with supplies lor human wants?to distribute this army into platoons, companies, battalions, regiments, in which promotion and rewards shall depend, not upon success in spreading ruin and woe, but upon energy and efficiency in diffusing comfort and happiness?in short, to inTest Labor, the Creator, with the dignity which has so long impiously crowned Labor the Destroyer and the Murderer, so that men shall vie with each other, not in devastation and carnage, but in usefulness to the race. To Capitalists.? is doubtless to be regretted that but few can be enlisted in any plan of radical reform. The condition of the wealthy, in our present state of society, is so far superior to that of the poor, who constitute the masses, that the former are prone to adhere naciously to existing institution*, dreaning, perhaps, lest a change may degrade them to a lower level. Although harrass.-d h_\ cares, anxieties, and apprehensions of a change of fortune, hoy still cling to that state oi thing? in which they enjoy an envied position?a position .of which they feel the uncertainty, though they hope for its pernianencc. In spite of all their pains, the rich are frennuntlv the fathers or. at least the irrandfathers nf he!*. gars. Webelie\e that Association offers to the capitalist a mode ot investment both safer and more profitable than can often bo found in our existing state of society. The sums which have been lost in civilization, after being invested in its choicest and most favored modes, almost defy computation or estimate. Witness its banks, insurance companies, and other similar institutions, the capital of many of w hich has been annihilated, while that of very few remains unimpaired. The capitalist who has trusted the plighted faith of sovereign States has been scarcely less unfortunate. We, therefore, invite the attention of capitalists to the 1 guaranty ottered them by our arti les of Association, and to the manner in which they are secured a regular divi ' tleivl. They are to receive the avails of at least one-third of the gross product, after deducting necessary expenses ; ! and, if that is not sufficient to pay them seven per cent per annum, they are to receive a larger, portion until that ' amount is paid, the subsistence of the members alone be- ' ing preferred to their claim of seven per cent. * * ' Application for membership, or tor stock, (if by mail, postpaid or free,) mav be made to cither of the following ' persons, to each of whom a letter of iustuction has been ! addressed, containing the conditions and qualification which will be required of resident members, of whom for 1 the present, but a limited number can be received K.

McCabe, Indiana, Indiana county, Pa ; Albert Brisbane, or Horace Ureeley, New Vork city. ft will thus be perceived that in the crroat Stute of Ohio the prospects of Henry Clay are of the brightest character. His cause and that of the great " industrial army" are inseparably connected, mid, under the gentle dews and diligent watering of philosophersAlberi Brisbane and Horace Greeley, cannot but prosper. Labor, the destroyer and the murderer, and Martin Van Buren, the cabbage grower and statesman, will soon be seen fleeing from these hatallions of hardy bran-bread eating wldiery like chaff before the wind. In Pennsylvania this new element has established itself with till more favorable prospects, and, as we learned from the "Tribune" some time since, in the western part of the great State of New York, the " industrial army" have taken possession of their Canaan, and are rnpidly restoring the primitive siinpli-1 i'ii v.elorv.and hainiiness of the blessed race ol Adam before the serpent introduced his abominable carcase into the embowered walks of Eden, and tempted Kve to eat that golden pippin. From the extracts w>> have given, it will be seen that this Fourierite system is of a very comprehensive character. There is an almightines* in its gr.isp?an expansion in its objects and aims?a feasibility in its projects and instrumentality, which commend it to the approbation of nil intelligent and rational beings. With such an agency at work in Ohio, there cannot be a doubt of Mr. Clay's ( ucceNs in that important State. Is there not a permanent stream, known as the Wegee Creek, on the domain! Is ihere not a promising young orchatd of crab apples! Cannot cider be made from them which sells at #4 a barrel! Are there not ten log houses on the premises! Bah! who are you that says " Mr. Clay won't carry Ohio !" You ought to be ashamed of your want oi common sagacity, and the sooner you join the great " industrial army" for the purpose of picking tip some common sense, so much the better. But it is in New York, which has, we believe, been called the " Empire State," that the greatest effort of the " industrial array" is to be made.? Skeneateles is to be the scene of their greatest iri mupii ; >>n mr mnigiii iai most neautltlll lake far inorc picturesque even than the Lake of Uen<-va?and we have been round ii, and sailed on if, and drank of its pure waters, and have gazed on its beauties in the holy moonlight, and in the brightness of the noon-day sun, and can therefore m' uk knowingly of its loveliness,?its heavenly atmosphere, its green and fragrant hanks, its delirious groves, and all iu thousand charms and enlintment* Here, then, another Kden has been t reated ; and not ojie Adam and Eve, hut a thou sand wf the fairest ol Kve's daughter*, and a thousand of the iiiuoi promising ol AdaJJi'o piulwrtopiuc sons ol the true Albert Brisbane aud Horace Greeley jKjwers and capacities, have willed or are to settle down?here iu this delightful paradise to cultivate their young orchards of crab apples?to b.ike bran-bread?to raise up young buds of loveliness and philosophy,?to render industry attractive, religion attractive, marriage attractive, philosophy attractive, borrowed capital attractive, vegetables attractive?every thing attractive. In these blessed and happy " diggitw" no serpent will be allowed to drag las slow length along. Human nature will reign 111 all its purity, dignity, elegance, simplicity and primitive innocent verdancy. Farewell, here, to the cortoding care?the agitating passion?the importunate temptation, and all the corrupting agencies ol evil by which conscience is defiled, peace troubled, and the sunshine of lloiie itsell overcast with thick gloom ! Kut lest it might be supposed by any that we ex aggerate?that tlie millenium is not ho near at liund ?that llenry Clay is not just so certain of his election, we annex the following most interesting and eminently philosophical document, which wc find j in the " Skeneateles Democrat." It is from the l>en of one John A. Collins ; and we doubt whether j Philosopher Greeley himself could write a more lucid, a more philosophical, a more practical, a a more sensible description. Here it is? The following articles, drawn up by tliut celebrated pleaderof human rights, J. A. Collins, abolition lecturer, were luralihed utby a friend, who obtained them from a member ol the Community, by whom they were copied trom the original It is to be hoped that all well-wishers to the human lamily will aid in circulating this document. Printers are requested to call the attuution of their readers to tlx- same, tliat all may be enlightened; that none rush blindly into this Commuuitv concern.

Bk.lovf.d Khilnus? By your consent and advice, I am called upon to make choice of those among you to aid me in establishing in this place a community of property and interest, by which we may be brought into love relations, through which plenty (and) intelligence may be ultimately secured to all (the) inhabitants of this globe. To accomplish this great work there are but very few, in consequence of their original organization, structure of mind, cducption, habits, and preconceived opinions, w ho are at the present . I .1 . > - um mis (jn-,u prunieui ui an man re demption. All whu conic together tor this purjiose should be united in thought and leoliug oa certain fundamental principles, tor without tbid a community ol property would be but a farce. Therefore, it may be said with great propriety that the success of the experiment will depend upou the wisdom exhibited in the choicu of the material* a* agents to its accomplishment. Without going iato the detail of the principles upou wnicli this Community is to be established, 1 will state briefly a lew ot the fundamental principles, which I regard as essential to be assented to by ever)' applicant for admission, 1st. Religion.?A disbelief in any special revelation of Ood to man, touching his w ill, and thereby binding upon man as authority in any arbitrary sense?that all forms of worship should ease?that all religions of every age and nation, have their origin in the same great falsehood, viz : Ciod's special providencus. That, while we admire the precepts attributed to Jesus of Nazareth, we do not regard them as binding because uttered by him, but because they are true in themselves, and best adapted to promote the happiness of the race. Therefore, we regard the Sabhath ns other days?the organized Church, as adapted to produce strife and contention, rather than love and peace ?the clergy, an imposition?the Bible, as 110 authority? miracles, as unphilosophical?and salvation from sin. or from punishment in a future world, through a crucified God, as a remnant of heathenism. .2nd. Governments.?A disbelief in the rightful existence of all governments based ujwn physical lorce?that they are organised bands of banditti, whose authority is lo be disregarded. Therefore, We will not vote under such governments, or petition to them, but to demand them to disband?do no military duty?pay no pwinonal or property taxes?sit upou no juries?refuse to testify in courts of so called justice ; and never appeal to the law for a rudiv oi grievances ; dui use an peucelul and moral me n< u ! secure their complete destruction 3rd. Property.? llial there is to ho no inlividial prn I perty, but all goods shall be hell in luinninn ? that lh? I idea of mine and thine, as regard* tin* earth and its pro ducts, as now understood in the exclusive tense, is to b disregarded and set aside?therefore, when we unite, v. will throw into the common treasury all the property which is regarded as belonging to us, and forever alter to yield lip our individual claim and ownership in it?that no compensation shall be demanded for our labor if we should ever leave. 1th. Mihiigi.?That we regard marriage as a true relation growing out of the nature of things, repudiating licentiousness, fornication, concubinage, adultery, bigamy, and polygamy?that marriage is designed for the huppiness el the parties, and to promote love ami virtue. That when such parties have outlived their affections, and cannot longer contribute to each other's happiness, the sooner the separation takes place the better, and such separation shall not be a barrier to the parties in again uniting with any one, wjien they shall cousider their happiness can be promoted thereby?that parents are in duty bound to educate their children in habits of virtue, und love, and industry, and that they arc bound to unite with the community. 6th. Education or Children.?That the community owes to the children a duty to secure them a virtuous education, and watch over them with parental care. 6th. Dir.Tits.?That a vegetable and fruit diet is essential to the health of the body, and purity of the mind, and the happiness ofsociety?therefore, the killing and eating ..........m ? MTOimauy wrung, umi snuiiin lie removed an ?oon as possible, together with the use of all narcotics mi! stimulants 7th ?That all applicants shall, at the discretion of the ' ommunity, but be put upon a probation ol three or six months. 8th.?Any person who shall force himself or hersell lpon the Community, who has received no invitation from he Community,or who does not assent to the views atiove enumerated, shall not be treated or considered as a mem-. 1 serof the Community?no work shall be assigned (to) him >r her (if) solicited, while, at the same time, he or she (hull be regarded with the same k indue* as all or any Jther stjangers?shall be furnished with food and clothing ?that if at any time any one shall dissent from any of all )f the principles enumerated atiove, he ought at once, in ustice to himself, to the Community, and the world, to leave the Association. To these views we hereby alfix iur respective signatures. Who now doubts the omnipotent*' of the " in lustrial army 1" Who now undervalues the agen ry of Mr. Philosopher Greeley and the " New York Tribune V Who now hus a doubt as to the triumphant return of Henry Clay 1 Webster's Speech.?A friend tells us, that the "He raid," a print we never see unless by accident, charges us with having coiiiod our report of Webster's speech at the New England dinner from its columns. It is scarcely necessary to say that tho statement is a lie. Every line of our report was prepared from our own notes. If the " Herald" persists in its paltry falsehood, we will compare passages of the two reports,which will show conclusively that we could not have copied from the " Herald" what the "Herald" never had. A trienil tells us, who was tola by a menu, who hud it from another friend, that he actually saw tlie above paragraph in a certain paper called the "Courier fc Enquirer," published in Wall ptreet, and edited by J. Watson Webb. As we never read that punt unless by accident, we cannot say positively that such a paragraph bus appeared, but as the intelligence which we have received comes, although rather circuitoutsly, with pome authenticity, we will take it for granted that it has appeared in that paper, and treat it accordingly. Now, in relation to the statement that we made with regard to the reports of the "Herald" and that of the "Courier," we reiterate it with more emphasis, and more conviction of its truth, than we did in our previous statement. There is not a possibility of doubt to any reasonable man who will compare the two reports, but that the "Courier Ac Enquirer" stole bodily the report first published in the "Herald," and passed it off for its own, merely making a few verbal variations, and a few additions, which a little more time would have permitted us to do. The speech was not delivered till half past eleven, yet we had it written out and in type by two o'clock The very reason which the "Courier" gives to its readers, that the "Herald V' report could not have been used by the "Courier," is precisely the best reason for believing the contrary; and after this confusion of ideas we are more lhan ever convinced of the me-innes.", an i littleness, nnrl falsehood, of our rct-pectable con temporary. We therefore cill upin our very respectable contemporary to carry out his threat ; t'> eopy thent paragraph by paragraph, to go into i II the elements of the two reports, and t<> show whether lie has not, to use hisown gentlemanly language, committed a base lir. This is not the firM time that the "Courier" ha* stolen our reports, and pis*ed them off for its own, nor is it the first time it has given evidence of its utter incapability and incapacity to give a correct report upon any subject <>t public *|>enklllg I liesp ;ire the remarks we make; and we trtiH that the ' friend <it the "Courier Ac Enquirer," who reads the Herald, 'and reports what the "Herald" ays, to our respectable contemporary, will again rend it and make a repott of what we now sav. I t it be as diplomatic as they ,,|c.,sc. we shall get I at the truth by and bye. The French Kevolution ok 13G0?Mr. Evkrtit'a Second Lecture.?'The ilua. AU juuder 11. ! Everett dilm-red hi* aecond lecture to the meui* hern of the Lyceum in the Tabernacle, Broadway, laM evening ; the aubjeot.being the French Revolution ot 1830. In his preceding lecture, Mr. Everett commenced by remarking, he had taken a rapid survey of the principal events and characters of the French revolution, from its commencement in 1780 to the abdication of Napoleon ; he now proposed to continue lus series of remarks, in the same cuisory way, up Ir> thp rpK/>llion /?/?ininrtnlu un ?! ?. TUm? - ?""7 ii.v lllicr Days, which terminated, for the present, at least, the great course of events which commonly went under that title. The real and substantial cause of this revolution, as he had previously remarked, consisted in the incongruity between the existing .-tute of society and the established form of government ; the form of government bv which the whole political power of ihe state had been attributed to a few hereditary rulers, remained unaltered whilst, m the meantime, the mass of the people who hail risen rapidly in civilization felt their importance, and deemed that as they possessed in no small degree, wealth and knowledge?the elements of power?they had a right to be admitted to some share in the administration of the government. This position taken by the people was obviously just < hut it was also not unnatural that it should be strongly resisted by the privileged classes, who owed all their importance to the existing system, and this conflict of interest, opinion, and feeling,which,under other circumstances might have terminated amicably resulted in convulsion and open war. The extensive and protracted struggle?of which he had detailed some of the principal movements in his last lecture?was carried on in various parts of Europe and with various success. For a lime the advantage remained almost wholly upon the side of the people. In France, f^pain, Portugal, Italy, in a great part of Germany, and throughout the western part of Euro^, the people succeeded in levolalivniziug the governments which existed, and in founding others of a more liberal character upon their ruins. Great Britain, however, formed an exception to this leinark, because the revolution of ItifOS had accommodated the lorm of government there in a great degree to the wishes of the people and the altered condition of society, so that they (the people) had less cause for complaint, and consequently less zeal and power upon the popular side. At length, however, the legitimists prevailed; they carried back the war into the enemies territory, and they planted the standard of their head quarters upon the site of the revolution in l'aris. Tfiis change of fortune, nevertheless, was more apparent than real; it wus owing to a change in the opinions and feelings of the |>eople in reference to the character and proceedings of their own champion. Napoleon, essentially a mere soldier, forgot, in his professional zeal for war, the duties that belonged to his political situation, for, instead of relieving the people froiu the oppressions under which they were suffering, and admitting them to a share in the administration of ifovernmi-nl (if miinriivnli /i'il f lit* u/liol?> l>ower in his own person, and exercised u decree of oppression which they hud never suffered from their legitimist rulers. They found that the onjy object for which Napoleon employed his splendid military talents, was the aggrandizement of himself and family; they, therefore, lost all attachment to his person and interest in his success. For a long time he felt himself that he had no friend in France except the army; and even his Marshals beuan to grow we ary, declaring that he Would n rest till he had slain them nil In the forei tries, under his influen lie feeling u more distinct, as was i by the establishment of " The League of Vi inOermany. In .-liort, the position of the tw arties was completely reversed; the liberal i ? relied for success upon military organization, ide the established go^ 1ments relied for their strength upon the zeal t bcrty and independence which animated ' of their subjects. The result again show ,ierioriiy of moral motive?the u.-cen moral onuses over mere material and plij>ica! <ame ti.le of popular feeling thai had cari.eU the tpivnin in niuiii|>n. in me nrai instance, no sooner i an opposite direction than it brought tlto allies to .ipl'.al of France; victory fuihnvod in both casts the stanijnl of iho people, the only dirtcicnce beiig that i . le firait instance the standard of the people w a* erected j tlieumelve* in the French capital, whilst at the close ul Ins struggle it paused over to the allies. These ca.ises liai' very import mil influence The allien having obtained lieir victory in the name ol liber y and of the right., ol iu.1. tliey could not, consistently, leave that idea out 01 . iew in tue arrangements for a general pacification In rVance the exile 1 Bourlxjns were restored, and the prin alterations in the lan called for by the National An emhly, ware now embodied and established as the form of government ill the charter or written constitution B) '.his document provision was made for the representatives of the people, tor liberty of speech, ofthe press, and of action?within limits prescribed by fixed laws, and security I'or personal rights. It w as, in short, if executed in the spirit by whicn it was conceived, of a nature to give all necessary satisfaction to the friends of liberty. Similar arrangements took place in the Netherlands. Germany, mil elsewhere. By this charter the people of France became " something" if not " every thing " It was, however, in the nature of compromises or contracts between he people upon one side and governments upon the other. ,o be viewed as compromises or contracts not advantageous to the people, who in the present case, would have preferred a representative republic like our own? (cheers). It was therefore not unnatural, under thests irrumstances that the people should watch with extreme jealousv the execution of this contract. If Charles the I'enth nad fulfilled his part of it, probably he would have (irevented the violent confusion and disastrous result to .limself which took place in the three days. Mr. F.verjtt then rapidly reviewed the events of the period intervening between the crantina nf tin. rlinrtor an,I ?V>?. urin ipal persona who took part in accomplishing tliose vents, remarking in the words of Tallevrand, that the fiotnbons upon their return to Krance, evinced by their -onduct that they had learned nothing, and l'orgot no.hing. They brought back with them all their antiquated prejudices and personal antipathies which thev had aken away, Without having derived any useful lesson from their long tuition in the school of adversity. It was but justice, however, that Louis the 18th, who first occupied the throne, formed an exception, for he declared at :he outset of the revolution in favor of the popular ;>arty,and he remained attached through life to liberal opilions. He was in fact considered the author ofthecharter, m?l was consequently popular with the people. He was liverted, however, from acting upon it as ne wished by he importunities [of his family, the fatal consequence of which was, the return of Napoleon,the hundred days.and general convulsion up to the period of his second assumption of the throne iu 1816. His policy then wore a lihernl nspcct : he was determined noon rarrvinir out ?li* I charter. Thig excited the disgust of the Compte D'Artois. brother of the King and heir to the ihrone, the prince who afterward* lost the throne under the name of Charles the Tenth. Here followed a well drawn character of this monarch, who was shown to be possessed of high intellectual, physical and moral advantages, disfigured by ultra ami most violent royalist principles ; had his principles been different, his personal advantages, Mr. Everett said, would, in all probability have rendered him a very popular sovereign. The leaders of the royalist and liberal partie*, both political and literary, were then sketched, and their power over the public mind estimated, from which it was evident that if not all the talent, at least all the argument and reason lay upon the side of the liberal writers. In the. mean time the people of the other States to whom similar charters had been promised, finding themselver deluded, exhibited symptoms of disatt'cction and rebellion, so that indications of mischief were brewing over almost | mi r.urope. ai last on me tirst ol January, 1H-JO, on army of 10,000 men, which had been collected at Cadiz to proceed to America to reconquer the Spanish Colonies, declared themselves against the government, and for tho Cortes of 1812; and the King of Spain found it necessary to sign the constitution. Events of a similar character took place in Naples, Portugal ami Sardinia, hut they were suppressed by force. These occurrence* produced a strong feeling In the courts of Europe, and particularly in that of France; and the assassination of the Duke of Berri, about the same time, probably had still greater effect in producing the change which followed, for it caused the King (Louis XVIII ) to change entirely his policy, giving it exactly an opposite direction to that he had previously pursued. The death of l.ouis, which occurred in 1913, transferred the crown ' from the author of the charter to its bitterest opponent, and the known adherents of ultra royalist ond*nrbit|?ry opinions. The first result of this change was the. marching of one hundred thousand men into Spain to crush the new constitution; nnd Mr. Everett narrated the subsequent events of the King's reign, including a description of the elections, at which the people igvariable returned majorities in opposition to the court, till the establishment of the Polignac administration, by which the famous ordinances were issued which were the immediate cause of the three days'revolution. By one of these instruments, the newly elected Chamber of Deputies wert* dissnlvt-i! before they ever assembled; bjr the second, the publication of newsna|iein was prohibited, without a preliminary licence; cnn by the third, a lar^e portion of the voter* In the kingdom were deprived of the franchise; all in direct opposition to the chnrter. Th? result was the flinrht and abdication of rimrles X, an I the ascension of Louis Philippe. whi> e history and character w?re graphically sketchet Following ih?- naintive ? ni a comparison lietween the Stuart family. in EnelUh history, an t < harles.

The same serene calmness pervaded his whole performance, giving a rare surety and energy to his playing, and imparting at the same time a wonderful pearly evenness to his notes, which form the characteristic distinction of the school he founded, and which will always maintain him in the exalted position lie now occupies as a violinist. Our op inion as to his merits as a composer tor the violin remains unchanged. lie is, without any doubt, unrivalled amongst the modern, and, although fully acknowledging the high glory of a Spohr, a Rhode, or a Viotti, we look in vain amongst the older ones for an author who would combine a similar richness ol melody with an equal depth of understanding in the technical parts. Mr. Vieuxtem|)s played last night as he played a fortnight ago at the Washington Hotel, and as he will always play. The greatest artist is not unfrequently the slave of a fancy, a caprice; an atom may disturb his equanimity, and the reaction is visible in his performance; but not so Vieuxtemps; he is always quiet, his brow is unruffled as trie brow of a young bride, he always "immotus vclut rupes i-esistit." He takes up his bow, throws a disdainful glance on the lesser evils "flesh is heir to," and parting the waves of harmony with pow eriui arms, sourias wntcn can me spneres their fatherland. The concerto, winch was the first piece, is one of the few of Heriot's compositions which successfully stemmed the current of oblivion that engulphed liis "airs variiet" It is really a charming morceau, containing a beautiful rondo, and was given by V ieuxtemps with all the brilliancy of which his style is capable. The great applause it elicited was only merited. It would be common-place to say that he overcame the immense difficulties in his fantasia capnciosu, (which he has played already, in his nrst concert,) with the aplomb of an old master. For what are difficulties to hinil?a mere child's toy. His splendid Hageoletto never appeared to greater advantage, and he was very ably seconded liy the orchestra. After the Smolenska by the graceful Julia Turnbull, came, what every body thought the concluding piece, the well known duett for violin and pianoforte on airs from Bellini's Somnambula, in which M'lle Vienxtemps assisted her brother. She is a very neat and tasteful pianist, and appears to be quite familiar with the modern brilliant school.? She would have done more justice to her excellent touch and faultlessexecution.ifshe had played a solo It would be a matter of great difficulty for every pianist, to shine in the presence of such a star as iter brother is.

The Vacancy in the United States Supreme CoritT.?The vacancy made in this court, by the >f Judge Thompson, .begins to attract the kers from all quartern. Hut it happens lill this office awakens a higher rank of i e-seekers than usually come forward before the public. We see many persons already named to till it, such as J. C. Spencer, Dan'l B. Tallmadge, Hiram Ketchum, and many others. In the Comm rcial of yesterday, we see a notice that an applic it ion has been already forwarded to Washington iii favor of Mr. Hiram Ketchum. Probably Mr. K>tchuni may be the candidate of Mr. Webster, tnd may command all his influence with President Tyler. Be that as it may, we must say, from watching the course of Mr. Ketchum, and as a lawyer and a politician and a public man in this city, we do not think he is possessed of sufficient talent, of sufficient liberality, or ot sufficient amplitude of mind, for the high office he aspires to. Mr. Ketchum has a great deal of talent oi a certain kind, but its range is narrow; he has strong prejudices both political, religious, and other kinds; and we do not think, upon the whole, lie possesses that kind of comprehensive mind which ought to be elevated to the Court of the United States; and we hope that President Tyler will take that into consideration when he fills the vacancy. Public Meeting in J{ elation to the Gas Com i-any.?a number ot citizens called upon us yesterday in relation to the notice we have given in reference to a public meeting that is preparing to be jailed to investigate the concerns of this company, ind present their conduct to the next Legislature. We believe there is a strong feeling :n favor of such a movement, and we understand that the proprietor of the Shakspeare Hotel, in the Fourth Ward, has offered the free use of his Hall for a public meeting. In a few days, and as soon as preparation is made, it is probable full notice will he given, and nil those who complain of the exorbitant charges I iuayui, iciiicmuri yum ucai inrime*, una a ACW Year's gift, let us sec again the natural paving stones; we are tired of the artificial substitute.

His collection of green-house plants, vases and baskets of Howers, and rare and valuable seeds are all emi nently worthy of attention.

List evening, at the United States Hotel, the American Republicans met for the purpose of organization. About six to eight hundred persons were present. Hedden Ball, Esq., was called to the chair, and Samuel Bond anil Caleb I'. Crockett, Esqra., appointed Vice Presidents, and Richmond Ward, Esq., Secretary. The meeting was addressed by Thomas S. Oakley, Ea<|., of this city, in a speech of an hour's length,and adjourned with three cheer* for American principles, and three hearty ones for the speaker.

Pray, Mr. \* ...... i ...... j r_: 1- 1 vr Washington. (Correspondence of the Herald.) Washington, IV ?. 24, 1843. ) Christmas Kve. > James G. Bennett, Esq:? Dear Sib? This, being Sunday, is another dies -non. The only thing which has occurred to-day sU Washington worthy of notice, is the preaching of the Rev. Judge Colquitt, Senator from Georgia, at the Methodist church. I say the Reverend Judge, because he was introduced to the audience by the pastor of the church us .Judge?as in point of fact he is. I am at a loss to decide whether I should say any tiling of his sermon or not. Could 1 speak of it us a rich intellectual treat?tilled with thought*?addressed to the reason?logical?theological?mathodical?grammatical?eloquent in style and diction?or in fact as possessing any of those points of attraction which characterize tne efforts of g* nius and intellectual greatness, it would give me ulea sure to speak of it. But us it was a sermon addressed exclusively to the passions ami the fears of the audience, containing zeal enough tw season a whole " body of divinity," it may be lieit to pass it by with the single remark, that if an ordinary uneducated Methodiit Elder (Mr. Colquitt is a Methodist,) had delivered it to an audience of country farmer* and mechanics, instead of a learned Judge and Senator of the United States delivering it to a polite audience of Ex-Presidents, Senators, Representatives, and others of equal eminence ?I say if any body else had delivered auch a sermon, 1 should have called it mere rani. I will only say of it, in addition, that it was publicly advertised in the leading Washington papers. Ex-President Adams, and others above named were present, and expectation was on stilts to hear 3 man of such triangular capacity as to unite in his single person the three functions of Legislator, Judge, and Minister of the Gospel. The sermonising over, stilts fell. It is astonishing how Ole Bull is fiddling religious superstitions out of people who would never before set their shoe leather insiae of a theatre, for fear it would be defiled. Cat-gut and horse-hairdo what argument and logic can't. Yours, Sic. S. B. Mr. Bennett:? Do ordonotthe AmericanKepublicaue.asaparty, intend to run a separate candidate for the Presidency 1 This point is obscured in mystery, darkness and aoubt. In all their proceedings no satisfactory answer is given to this oft repeated inquiry. If they do not so intend, why not avow it at once in an open, manly, Herald like manner?in a manner not to be mistaken. This done, and all opposition ceases the instant the declaration is mane?their party will be the only party so far as the city government is concerned. This point gamed?our city freed from corruption, fraud and crime, and the work of reformation to say the least is nobly begun; indeed it will be glory enough for one year, to have removed all foreigners from office?established a strong and effective police?reduced one half the current expenses of the city?cleaned and repaved our streets?removed the lumber and rubbish from the side-walks, and many! other burdens under which the people groan and travail. Now is this the design of" Young America," or Itt if fn n rutfwtmil tliirifr?an 1 nripiipndoni party in politics, and, of course, share the fate of every third party which has sprung into existence the last half century. Thousunds are halting between two opinions waiting an answer to this.important inquiry. Quran. We cannot answer the question?nor do we believe can Young America. Why ask tliem a question which cannot be unswered 1 The first great object is to reform the city government?to run for the city government?to confine their purposes to the city government. When that object is achieved, it will be time to inquire "what next1" That is our opinion. The Presidential question is not sufficiently developed to know what's what, or who's who. Mil. Bennett :? Are you aware that the aentence last week decided upon, for Beach, in your case, wan a fine of $350 and ten lays in the city prison ; and that the Recorder has since itated to Beach's counsel, that his imprisonment will be reduced to one day 7 Are you aware that Major Noah is now editor of Beach's Sun?that is, has become Beach's doer of melancholy work, and that his is the new hand which has appeared at the handle of that bellows the present week ? These are truths spoken " by authority." ONE BEHIND THE CURTAIN. We are aware of no such thing, and do not care i button whether it be so or not. The Court of Sessions may sentence Mike Walsh, with three cents in his pocket, to the penitentiary for two months, and Moses Y. Beach, with $50,000 in his pocket, to a fine of six cents and no imprisonment at all if it please. It is a question for the moral sense of the community to pass upon. We have done >vith it. As to poor old worn out Noah, he may write where he pleases, we have done with him long unce, and shall never put a straw in his way either lere or hereafter. Great Men of tlie American Republicans. VIr. Bennett? In the catalogue of the orators of this party, you iiave omitted at least three who deserve a niche in ihe Temple of Fame. I refer to the Hon. M. M. ^uackenboes, the Hon. Job llaskel, and the Hon. :x-auciioneer Philo L. Mills. Mr. Q. does not teem to be so wordy as many of the others It would be well if Mr. Sammons, Whitney, Oakley, tlaskeil and others would take a lesson from him. They deal too much in appeals to the passions, ound assertions unsustained by facts, and positive nisstatcments and lalschoods, with a plentiful supily of doggerel, sometimes in prose, and somelines in the shape of poetry ; but it is only the shalow of it, lacking substance. There are others which I hope you will not omit to add to the cataogue from time to time, especially the candidates tor the loaves and fishes, ortne crumbs to be picked ip. VlEUXTEMPS. Withdrawal, of Mr. Buchanan.?A letter from the Hon. James Buchanan, addressed to the Democrats of Pennsylvania, is published in the last number &f the Lancaster Intelligencer. Mr. B. says:? "After long and serious refle?tion, I have resolved to withdraw my name from the list of Presidential candllates to be presented before the Democratic National Convention. This resolution has been dictated by an anxious lesireto drive discord from the rinks of the party, and se ure the ascendancy of Democratic principles both in the State and throughout the Union. In arriving at this conclusion, I have consulted no human being. It is entirely my own spontaneous act, and proceeds from the clearest ind strongest conviction of duty. Whilst thus taking my leave, as your candid?t" for the Presidential office, 1 am animated by * sense ol profound gratitude for the unanimity ?nd enthusiasm with which you have ura<*t my elevation to the highest office on 'arth. This feeling shall remain engraven on my heart intil time for me shall be no longer." He also expresses his determination to support 'he nominee of the National Convention, and does tot say a woru tor or against either lol the other . andidates.

Of the wine which Mr. Fuller caused to flow so treely yesterday, ('If Hull partook but little. He said he was the creature of excitement and enthusiasm, and he could not bear it. He complained of a severe pain in his chest, and also of^ome difficulty in the movement of his left hand ; and we began to entertain serious fears that he would not be able to perform, to his own satisfaction at least, lart evening. But hi- left the dinner early, took a walk, inhaled the fresh air, looked with admiration upon some of the Washington belles, caught a little ofthes^rit of our liberal anil free institutions as he gazed upon the capKi^ and w*s ready to perform his nart in the evenuiir. tolin>~wonder. aston- t iahment, and amazement of every &ne who heard him.

Hut the audience were altogether carried away by Ole Bull. No language could express their emotions?and not a few of the fair ladies of Washington, as was the case with the iadies of Baltimore, would have been delighted to have waited upon the handsome violinist, and in jrroirriis personu testified to him their admiration ana enchantment. Ole Bull will surely bewitch all the southern Indies. I need not say that the whole house was crowded with the very elite of Washington, including such Members of Congress as were in town. Ole Bull left this morning for Baltimore, where he performs this evening. He returns ana gives another concert here to-morrow (Wednesday) evening; after which he leaves for Richmond and other places in Virginia. Two or three important resolutions have been introduced into the Senate to-day, .is will be seen by the report. I refer particularly to the resolution of Mr. Alien to onen the doors of the Senate while transacting Executive business?to the notice of a bill by Mr. Atchinson to establish a government over Oregon. &c. The complaint is very general in relation to the difficulty oi hearing in the gallery what is said in the Senate below. And it is most respectfully suggested to the honorable Senators, that it their constituents, the public, have no right to know what ' they say and do upon the floor of the Senate, yet as a matter of courtesy, they might.when important matters are presented and discuswa. condescend to speak loud euough to be heard in the gallery.

Mr. Barrow presentrd a resolution calling on the President for such information as he may possess respecting the claims of citizens of the United States against Mexico. Mr. Walker presented a resolution asking the President to communicate to the Senate the expenses of the M government for each year up to the present, and also what these expenses were for. Mr. Berrien, from the Committee on the Judiciary, submitted on the 23d inst., a report (No. 8) accompanied by the following Bill, which was read twice and referred. A Bill ron Relief or Isaac Ilsley.
