NEW YORK HERALD. ? i Act* ?rk, January !i9, iH4> Mr. Jtwat'a AddreM?Second Kdltloa. An EXTRA HERALD will be issued from thia office to-diij, conUiaing the address of PHILO N. Rl'ST, on the conspiracy, concocted by Madame LtggtU t Co. of Buffalo, against him and Mr. Banks. Bo great haj been the demand for thia remarkable exposition, that we have been tinder the ncoessity of publiahing thia EXTRA to satisfy the public demand. It will probably be dramatised at the Olympic next week. It ia one of the drolleet things ever published. Tib* Literary War between Kngland and ine united siaics-inoiacr Since the return of Mr. Charles Dickens to England, we have had u number of very violent broadsides against tht institutions?social habits morals, politics and literature of this country. The politicians and the newspapers have been particularly the subjects of these hostile attacks, and now, alas! the poor poets of the past and present generation have come in for their full share of the enemy's /ire. The last number of the Foreign Quar' ttrly Review contains a long article?the leading article, too?which is a very fierce and furious attack'on the Poets and Poetryof America. We have given, on the first page of this day's paper, a number of extracts from this article, in order to afford our readers an opportunity of forming an accurate judgment respecting the temper, candor, liberality, and general competency of the reviewer. They make capital reading for this cold weather, and are almost equal to our reports of the debates in the House ol Representatives, between the Honnnihla Mr ,n,l it. ..ii.IIit IT..n,.r..l.U Mr. Weller, to say nothing of their first fight before prayers. Every one who reads the article, in this Review, on the "Newspaper Press of America," will, of course, on the perusal of these extracts, recog nize the same hand. There are, in this article, the same inveterate prejudice?the same virulent invective?the time gratuitous assertion?the same bastard wit?the same Btllingsgule slang?the same boasting egotism?the same envenomed hatred of every thing American. It would be very difficult indeed to fino, even amongst the peculiarly gifted fraternity of English reviewers, two men capable of pouring out against this country such quantities of spleen and ill-nature, with so marvellously little apparent provocation. Nobody but Mr. Dickens could do it. On him the very mention of America operates like a tormenting charm. There is something in the name even in these United Stales which perplexes his judgment, breaks his repose, and sets him foaming and shrieking like some unhappy demoniac. And the most melancholy part of the business is, that the poor man will not try to forget this torturing source of annoyance. On the contrary, as if influenced by some tyrannical fascination, he is continually directing his attention to it. To this thorny subject his mind perpetually reverts, and, though lacerated at every touch, it is so fascinated with the instrument of its own pain, that it cannot be drawn away from the distressing object Poor Dickens! It is reully amusing to observe the eagerness? the frenzied sort of joy?with which the Reviewer seizes on Griswold's collection of American poetry. Of the general merits of that book, and its claims to attention or respect, as a means of estimating the character of American poetrv, we believe all sensible people here, except thp author and u dozen or two or the rhymers, whose names he has saved front perdition for a year or two, have but one opi nion. Rut such a hodge-podge, injudicious, Jitn Grant (not our Jim Grant, in Ann sireet, who is a capitul barber,) sort of a " col lection," was just tlie thing for a Keviewer like Mr. Charles Dickens?a perfect Godsend, indeed?to be made the most of. And so it has been made the most of, at least so far as the illiherality, injustice, virulence and malignity of Mr. Charles Dickens' very magnanimous little soul enabled him. Even the "collection," however, did not afford sufficient scope for Mr. Dickens' discursive detestation of America. It is only after belching forth a torrent of general abuse of the country, which occupies several pages, ill at he gets to the works under review, and even then, when ' he has taken them up, he is constantly digressing for the purpose of letting < fi the rapidly accumulating btle. Bryant, Fitz-Greene Ilullcck, Emerson and Longfellow get an approving pat on the head, hut all their brethren of any degree are pelted without mercy. Mrs. Sigourney is moat ungallantly disposed of, receiving, indeed, almost as much abuse as her country itself. The name of the great American song-writer, General George P. Morris, is not even mentioned. Probably the nature of the personal -relations subsisting between the dis- i tinguished bard and the equally distinguished ( reviewer, prevented the latter from making any open manifestation of hostility. But the somewhat significant allusion in the article to 1 the grievous wound which would be inflicted on some of the poets by the omission of their names, even in terms of disrespect, may mean something in this as well us other quarters. However, that we leave to the judgment of those who best know the "Milford bard,"?we beg pardon,?the bard of Gotham?Geonre J'. Morris?General OiMH P. Morris ( Altogether the article in question is a melancholy , tissue of splenetic bitterness?violent prejudice? j gross tuicharitableness?wilful injustice, and pee- | vish irritability. It is a vile burlesque on that just, | dignified, manly, enlightened criticism, which should characterise a journal pretending to instruct and inform public opinion, and to correct and cdu- 1 cate public taste. It is true there are a few?a very few?wholesome truths uttered by the reviewer, but they bear to the mass of falsehood, misrepresentation, and vulgar abuse with which they are surrounded, about the same proportion thut Falsuff's pennyworth of bread did to his many gal'nns of sack Poor Dicke ns! &g porting in Washington?Mr. Cave Johnson of Tennessee, has offered a proposition to exclude all reporters from the House, except those connected with the Washington papers. If this proposi ivm >?w^o iiui iuvc i" uiiugciiier>an me nesi reporters in the country will he excluded, and the House of ( Representatives may as well hold its sessions with closed doors. Vet, after all, whether it rare?in or , not, the reporters will go into the gallery, and in- ] stead of the present tame and timid reports, we | shall have faitVful, graphic, perfect pictures of the scenes in Congress. That's all. So members may in that case expect to be cut more deeply than ever. 1 And in this view of the rase,we would on the whole 1 rather see Mr. Cave Johnson succeed. It would seem that the House is to be really turn- ' ed into a bear-garden A ring is to be formed and 1 pugilism is to be the daily business of onr legislators. So be it. We have got Chris Lilly and Yankee 1 Sullivan, to represent New York; and for thetoric and eloquence?that is, House-of Representatives rhetoric and eloquence, we have several clerical 1 characters in the region of the Five Points, who will be a match for any M. C. Common Council.?Both Hoards of .the Common Council meet this afternoon. In the Hoard of Aldermen, the ordinance for the sale of city property not ?cCupiejj.fbr public purposes, i? the order t?l the day;.and in the Assistants, Assistant Alderman Brown's police bill, which possesses more merit ihau any we have ?evn, kill he culled up for adoption. An amendment to the bill, bearing with more force upon receivers of stolen goods, would improve its character. Cold Weather ?The atmosphere m this city continues in a congealed state ; in Boston, on Saturday, the mercury was eight degrees below ro. Th* Mails Dpi ?Eight are now due from New Orleans. ' y ;; 1 General Xeolsct and Derangement of t7i* Mails.?The mismanagement of the affairs of thp c post office seems to increase with the increase of I every new moon without diminishing when that I amiable luminary does. There are now due six or t seven mails from New Orleans, and that, too, in a = crisis of great commercial enterprise and activity. The mails to the north and Canada are in the moat < wretched condition?withont despatch, order or re- ' gularity, and always behind the expresses. To Boston on the sailing of the British steamers, there is no confidence felt in the regularity of the post of- ' lice here, ns repeated failures to meet the steamer t there in time tor her sailing, has abundantly tcsti- 1 neti. .vna yet tu the luce ot these iailures, we see t the Postmaster publishing the following complacent 1 notice, by way oi excuse, and exhibiting his awful ^ promptitude:? t K.ioliim Mail?Post Oltice, New Vork, Dccembor 11, J 1343.?Letter Bags per ltoyal Mail Steamer Caledonia, ' which leaves Boston on Saturday, the 16th instant, will he ' closed at the Upper and Lower Post Offices, in this city, ' on Friday next, the 10th instant at 46 minutes past 3 o'clock, P.

The inland postage of lBj cents on each siagle let- ' ter must be paid. ] The Postmaster desires to call the attention of merchants ' and others forwarding letters to F.tirone by this mail to the fact oi one hundred and sixty-lire letters having been 1 seized by the admiralty agent, on hoard the ..U.niu-r t ale- ' donia, on her last trip'from Boston, and returned to the ' pes. office, in ccnseuuence of the inland postage on said letters not being paid to the |s>st office. The letters referred to were supposed to have been sent from this city. JOHN LOKIMF.R GRAHAM, Postmaster. Thus it will be seen that the Postmaster is reauy enough to give publicity to any solitary instance of smuggling he may detect, but he takes care to conceal from the public his greater blunders and neglect in the last steamer, which has just become a subject of inquiry among the merchants. Unless our worthy President does something with these Postmasters, both general and deputy, the department will lose all public confidence and be entirely disorganised. Under Kendall's regime, things were nothing to what they are now. Here is the very amiable and smiling Postmaster of New Yotk spending his time and salary in giving splendid conservative dinners on mountain mutton nnd Potomac canvass back, to the politicians at Washington, instead of looking after the affairs of the Post office here. Mr. Graham may think it of very great consequence to settle the position of the Hon. N. P.jTallmadge, and William C. Rives in the next contest, and to look after n few of the nominalions in the Senate ; but he may rely upon i* tlint ilt'ia/iAmmnnilir urniilil lw? fits uroll entluftoH if II III.II IIHO I.UI1IIIIU1IIIJ TTVFU.VI UK OC K I I lie would, like his predecessor, Mr. Coddington, remain in his office and attend to his public duties here. He has filled the office here with swarnisof sons, brothers, and nephews of broken-down politicians and North American Trust financiers, who are utterly ignorant of its details; and but for the aid of a few o!d?steady Post office clerks, we would be in a most awful coudition. It is time to t give office to men who will attend to its affiiirs.

I perceive inder the head of " movements of cotton in the ' Jnited States," a table showing 'he production, oiibuinptiou and exportation of cotton for eleven ; ears, 1832 to 1812-3, inclusive. I was struck with the comparative smallness of t tic export value of cotton the last year, compared , nth the preceding ones, in one of which two hirds of tne quantity had nearly the same value at he greater quantity in 1812-3. Noticing tnis fact, I had a desire to lind from the lble what was the average export value of ?hc ar- i iclc in past years. In order to this, I thought it tould be but proper to exclud c paper mom rices. Therefore, I took the fi ur years (1832to 1885-6) the first of whit as at a low ran . ! lid the last a high one. In these four years were e.\ Tied an avernge o. j million of bales |?er year (: s 15,000)?value in j | ound numbers, forty-rive and a half millions ol ollars. In the last year were, by your table, < orted a million and a half ot bales (less 12,000 altie in round numbers, forty-seven and a I lillions of dollars ; or, by the table, it appears t le export value of 172 millions of bales in 1842-;;. i only two millions, specie currency, less than a lillton of bales in the same currency, on an aver , ge of four years (1S32-3 to 1885-6 ) Had the ii verage value of cotton continued, the export ol tl 842-3 should have been of the value of over (?" 1 tillions of specie, making a difference of 20 mil " ons. This is a quarter more than the value of all le cotton taken for home manufacturing, which at le average value above mentioned (#46 a bale) it ' ither less than 15 millions ol dollars It has been suggest* d that the difference of the ? toney value of cotton, at the periods of the abovt n verage (8 to 11 cents per lb.) and its value in 1 3-12-3, (7 a 7J cents per lb.) or 20 millions of dol- * trs, is just the amount which the cotton planten ' iv, in consideration of the manufacturers taking f 15.0(H) bales of cotton of the former; and the ar j imeut used is, that since the first production ol itton in the southern Stutes, the manufacture ir tl reat Britain has kept pace with our production ? is thence inferred, that if we did not manuluc. u ire cotton.the vastly increased employment of Bri sh capital and laborers or operative to supply tin 1 oiled States, would increase (lie value of the raw ' laterial in Lnglaml, and niiy me wiioii rop, nt least 2 cents a pound, or Hi to 2l) million f dollars in value. To this the intelligent am isinterested parties on the other side reply, thai , otton has declined abroad because the supply i renter than the demand. " No," says the objtc p ?r, " past experience has proved that the domain. ' aes on, and will continue, pari pnuu, with tin " ipply. It is you, inanuinciurers, who cause the '' ecliiie; because the cotton planters must sell ti hoever will buy. Great Britain is the great buy r. The Americans will not exchange their raw |. laterial for the manufactured one. They will take mney only; and such being the case, the buyei I' lust and will oblige the seller to take the lowest ash price." 1 Now, Mr. Editor, though I am no abolitionisi ' ret n hearty wisher that our southern friend.- ? iny adopt Gurney's plan of paying their lajrers, and making them support themselves, id feel most kindly towards all southerners,) yet am sure tliey wilt cheerfully submit to exisig low prices for their cotton and tobacco? 1 ir the British prices regulate ours?when they are * isured it is so favorable to the most important " ranch ot American industry, manufacturing. j liicli has never enjoyed greater prosperity thai ? le past year.

However, the plaintiff being removed by a Court -erogniscd by the State, it does not follow that he mar ecover his salary from the defendants upon proof of tl:t 1 legality of his removal. The defendants are onh ounu legally to pay the clerk who performed thi luties for the period actually claimed. Still, if thi icts of the Court (except the validity of the judg ncnts) are void, the plaintiff did not take the pro ler remedies?he has never been reinstate in office ind has consequently no right to claim his salary, ii nin event the plaintiff if entitled t.r the balance of he -alary due him at the time of his removal. But the Couti told that he is not entitled to recover the salary due ti| 0 the commencemnnt of the suit, inasmuch as lie neglect d to take the proper remedies; and in reason and justici he defendants me not to be answerable for his default, t'non the whole,"the Court says, "we think, that as thi Aldermen took their seats us judge* of the Court of 8c ions, that the removal ofaelerk, and the appointment o> 1 successor, were legal acts of a court de facto. For the mrpose* of this suit the Court may say. that the conn vhieh removed the plaintiff was then, tod fully coneiitu ed, or had all the poweis nceeseary to, a court, and was egally convened, hecauso the plaintilf has not prove' hat the judges were not legally summoned, and bccsusi he act of removal was performed by a court under the oloroflnw. Whatever the opinion of the Court could lave been, as to the plaintiff s right to recover in a direc' rocreding in reference to the question Involved, it never In-less thinks thnt the plaintiff eannot avail himself of sue), natters, when he calls upon th" defendants for the oav went of his salary.

This was last winter positively pro- n mised, to Mr. Edmonds, and if he was to he rewarded for his political services, he merited the r office over fifty Meh men as McVean. But we presume Gov.

The Speaker told him that such u motion would lot he in order at the present time. Mr. Johnson was understood to say that he would iring it forward at some other time ; hut there was o much confusion in the House at the time, unu lis motion seemed to excite so much sensation, hat it was impossible to make out what he did Ivir. C. J. Inoersoll made some remarks, which vere also inaudible from the confusion. He was inderstood to say something about the questio Kxata of the Reporters !
