A very Pretty Quarrel m It 3Undt<" Another very pretty quarrel has just been added to the list which already engages the interest of the world. In this city, Potts and Wainwright commenced?Hughes and Cheever followed, whilst in Congress, Adams and Ingersoll are daily in arms Shriver haa challenged Weller, who dare'nt fight, and Ingersoll falls foul upon an unhappy reporter. Washington is now in hysterical excitement at these explosions of narmlese valor; whilst New York is in a fair way of losing its interest in the concerns of Messrs. Potts, Waiuwright, Hughes and Cheever, by a counter explosion, which has just taken place between James Watson Webb, the famous Colonel, and Horace Greeley, a Fourier philosopher, of more aspiring eminence than any of hit* predecessors, ancient or modern. The Presidential election in 1845, or rather the loaves und fishes connected with it, lias been the cause ol this amiable difference. Both are Clay men to the centre; and one phase of the dispute is which can put forth the greatest interest for the candidate. Webb conducts the Courier and Enquirer, which is the organ of the Wall street whigs; whilst Greeley soliloquizes in the Tribune, which is the orguo of ihe country whigs. The one that can induence the greatest number of votes may reasonably be supposed to have the first claim to the spoils; and Webb, cunningly perceiving that the Wall stieet interest, great as it may be to him, has very small dimensions compared with the country interest, thus " walked into " Greeley on 1 Saturday last t? Durinir the whole of 1333. the Courier and Enuuirer wiiii the anient, uncompromising, anil devoted advocate of Mr. Clay for the Presidency, and insisted upon his nomination by the Harrisburgh Convention, even while that body w is in session. Where was the Editor of the Tribune during this period, and how engaged? Why, he was perambulating this State from North to South and East to West, denouncing Henry Clay as a slaveholder, organizing abolition eliqutt against him; preaching in favor of Scott In one quarter, and Harrison in another ; and, linally, we lind him at Harrisburgh, boldly, impudently, and falsely proclaiming, that if Mr. Clay was nominated, Mr. Van Buren would inevitably be elected ! Well, Mr. Clay was defeated in the nomination, and Horace Oreeley returned to New Vork, hoax!in that this was hit work ! and this was true. His constant travelling through the western part of this State, and the falsehoods he circulated in relation to Mr. Clay, and his false statements at Harrisburgh in relation to pubLic opinion hers, had the desired effect; and hi, more than any other ten men in the United States, brought upon the whig party and the country the eurit of Tylerism. Coming from " a friend," this was not to be tolerated by Greeley, who among his other peculiarities does not exactly number that of patient endurance ; and accordingly he penned a reply in the Tribu.ru of yesterday, which is really curious and characteristic. His answer to the "political reminiscences" of the Colonel is as follows:? The Courier's memory is a short one ; it seems to go back only to 1339. But we can remember, boy though we were, how deeply our feelings were involved iu the great contest of 1SJ8, when the pure, the able, the successful, the unproscriptive, the economical and just administration of John Quincy Adams and Henry (.lay uus put down?lied down, we thought?hv the most atrocious personal imputations on those lofty statesmen. Wc cannot take a political defeat so much to heart now as then ; hut we then most keenly felt that, if ever rascalN deserved the pillory or the cell, they doserved it who rung the changes on " bargain and corruption," " east room," " billiard table," " Sunday riding," and all the monstrous 'ales of extravagance and profligacy on the part of that j severely simple and inflexibly just man, John Quincy , Adams. Among these deceivers, wc noted as particularly j unscrupulous anfl outrageous two named Mordecni M. Noah and lames VVatton Webb, who conducted, jointly or severally, two or three "National Advocates," the " fclnquirer," the " Courier," and ultimately the " Courier and Cnquirer." And their slanders did not cease with their overwhelming triumph, hut continued down to late in 1932, when Mr. Clay was the candidate for President, un4 was assailed as grossly, unjustly as he hail been in Ibid. Vet in that year '32. after the public mind had been thoroughly poisoned and Mr Clay's defeat secured, these men (or the military one, at least) made a sudden somerset into our ranks'?on what inducement we will not say. But this we can say : that if the sum of 000 (was there or was there not an odd $97.r> 7) will send hint back to Tammany Hall and ensure his staying there, the money will be laised promptly and cheernillv: and it will he the best expenditure ever made for the whig cause. We now come to I83!?:?It is lamentable that to* many ofthose who bowed to the withering curse of Jacksonism.that for a time prostrated or condemned to obscurity all independent thought and manly dignity, will continue to talk as though its yoke were still on the neck of the country. Thus the ' Courier" makes devotion?not to the great principles and beneficent mensnres of the whig party, w hich will endure and he worth fighting tor long after all j ot us are dea.l and forgotten?hut to the pri son of Mr. : Clay, the standard of polit'cal orthodoxy! The "Cou- | rier1'supported Mr. Clay's selection as the whig candidate for President in 193d; the editor of the " Tribune"? 1 (then, as over, a private citizen, and nut then connected | with any political journal)?did not, hut, loving his conn- i try more even than Mr. Clay, whom he knew and | a.lmired, while he had never met or written to either j General Harrison or (ieneral Scott, came to the i conclusion, during the summer of that year, that i the nomination ol Mr Clay at Harrishurg would j not be best ; that the whigs would probably be defeated on him, and could succeed with another candidate. So believing, he acted accordingly; 0|>enly, publicly sta ] ting his convictions and their reasons to such friends as chose to interchange ideas with him ; and taking a jour- j ney (with no political purpose, but that matters not,) to ; Itetroit and hack, during the summer. He went also to Harrishurg, when tlie C onvention met as any body had j a l ight to do, anil there expressed his convictions, to those i w hom lie knew, or who sought discussion with him on : the * i >jens. So much he did. as he. has always admitted I u t! t flstifled. (educated in a party which regards princi- 1 cipb-s as more important than mpn, he labored to secure , the triumph ol the principles he ardently cherished, at the expense of the man whom lie would have greatly i preferred, had he esteemed the chance of success equal 1 Willi him. (lie did not kill General Harrison, nor selecl 1 that noisy dayman, John Tyler, for Vice President)? I Me may have erred in judgment?admit that he did? J what then? Ve'y msnr of the wisest and purest whigs j iu the laud i-n'Hrtained the same convictions and pusiied the tame course The tremendous victory which follow- , e l an I ra*Hied the llarrishnrg nominations evinces that the choice theie m ide was not the shameful fraud which 1 the i-'ouner represent* it. Beiides politic*, the military assailant of dree ley broiled him upon another gridiron: The Editor of 7V Tribune is an abolitionist; we pre | c.iMly the reverie. Up ii n Pbiloiopher; we are a Cbrietinn. j lie ii a pupil ot Graham, and would have all the world live upon bran bread and lawdust; we are in favor of liv- j ing a* our lathers did. and of enjoying in moderation the ; g iod things which Ood has beatowed upon ua. He ia the advocate of the Fotirierism. Socialism, and all the torn- j 1 lolories which have (riven birth to the debasing and di?- | gusting spectacles of vice and immorality which Fanny W'nght, Collins and others exhibit, whilelie pretends to , deny that these are the legitimate features of his creed; > we un the contrary,are in favor of preserving society as'it j i?,sn 1 as God ha? permitted it to he for six thousand years, anxious only to prune it of its vices by giving to virtue its just reward, and visiting upon crime the severest pen- | alty of the laws. He, as a Philosopher, would remodel everything?change if possible, the very phraseology of : the Bihle ilaelf. and demonstrate the absurdity of the Christian religion from the fact that its great Author did I not inculcate the theory of Cbarlet Fourier; while we j would stand by the faith and the practices of our fathera, | humhiy contending that that which God instituted, and Christ a* Ood, did not change is more entitled to our re- ' spect than the visionary notions of all the Fouriers and , Finny IVrifhti of the age His boast is "to give hospitalty to every new idea;" we on the contrary, would first exam, j ine its rnarits and judge it accordingly. He seeks for noloritly by pretending to great eccentricity of character ! a id ot habits, and by the strangeness of his theories and | practices, we on the contrary, are content with following ill the beaten path and accomplishing the good we can in the old fashioned way. He lays claims to creators* by wan let ing through the streets with a hat double thesi/e of hi* head, a coat after the fashion of Jacob's of old, w ith one leg of his pantaloons inside and the other outside of his boot, and with boots all hespa'teml with mud, or possibly, a shoe on one foot and a boot on the other, and glorying in an unwashed and unshared person. Wo on th" contiary, eschew all such offer lotion as weak and silly, we think there is n difference between notoriety and distinction , we recognize the social obligation to net an 1 dress according to our station in life; and wa look upon cleanliness of person as inseparable from purity of thought and benevolence of heart In short, there is not th# slightest resemblance between the F.ditor of the Tribune end ourself riolitiratly, personally or in. ciolly; and it i* only when his affectation and impudence are unbearable, that we condescend to notice him or his prees. The first obiecf to which Greeley flew for consolation under thin unfeeling infliction, whs the subscription list of the Trihunt, which seem* to he to n what the ledger was lo the mieer, nnd there he t ie (lolonel upon the hip " What," he nake in a spasm of triumph, " is the philonvphy" of this1 | The " philosophy," we supixise the Colonel musi take as gall and wormwood. Greeley is nevertheless a great man, and no mistake, as the followI ing passage upon his opinions, personal habits, and history, indisputably prove. Mankind may expeci some useful laasons from hisenlire autobiography. It ii true that the editor of The Ti-ibvne choosei mainly (nnt entirely) vegetable food; but he nevei troubles his readers on the subject, it does not wor ry them ; why should it concern the Colonel ! It ii true he believes in Fourier's ideas of associated in dustry ; but it is hard for Philotophy that so hunibli d man shall he made to stand aa its exemplar; whih Christianity it ja-itouitied by thu hero of tile Sunday due with Hon. Tom. Marshall ; but auch luck will happen At to our personal appearance, it does teem time thai we thould tay something, to stay the Hood of nontemu with which thetownmustby thin time be nauseated Somi donkey awhile ago, apparently anxious to assail or annoy the editor of this paper, and not well knowing with what originated the story of his carelessness of personal appear ances. and since then every blockhead of the same dltposi tiou and distressed by a similar lack of ideas, has repeated and exaggerated the foolery ; until from its origin in tin Albany Microscope it has sunk down at last to the columns of the Courier and Knyuirer, growing more absurd at every landing. Yet all this time the object of thii silly raillery has doumlesi worn better clothes than two thirds of those who thus assailed him?better than any ol them could honestly wear, if they paid their debit otherwise than by bankruptcy ; while, if thuy are indeed more cleanly than he, they musl bathe very thoroughly not less than twice a day. The editor of the Tribune is the son of a poor and humblr farmer; came to New York a minor, without a friend within two hundred miles, less than teu dollars in his pocket, and precious little besides; he has never had u dollar from a relative, and has for years labored under a loud oi debt, (thrown on him by others' misconduct and thu revulsion of 1837), which he can now just seetotht end of. Thenceforth he may he able to make a better show, if deemed essential by his friends; for himself be has not much time or thought to bestow on the matter. That he ever affected eccentricity is most untrue; and certainly no costume he ever appeared in would create ruch a Mentation in Broadway at that James Watson Wehb would have worn, but for the clemency of Coventor Seward. Heaven grant our assailant may never hang with such weight on another Whig Executive ! Greeley has mettle in him ; let the Colonel heware. Who'll come in for the greatest share of the spoils 7 Nous vtrrons. Seriously speaking, we have no doubt, after all that these selfish and disreputable quarrels among these leading editors ol the whig press, will disgust the respectable portions of the whig party so much as affect the issue of the approaching contest. Dickens has been severe upon us; but with all his exaggeration he is not halt so severe as these rival Clay editors are upon themselves. The popular conduct may be influenced by them so as to affect the successof theirgrand object; but that is their owu look out. The public, however, are beginning to get their eyes opened, and not to place themselves under the guidance of party or party politicians, or party newspapers: they are beginning to patronize independent journals likeourown, which give the whole truth, without reference to anyparty whatever, whereby they can always judge for themselves from the general statement of the case before them. Affairs at Washington.?The state of affairs at Washington begins to be very interesting. We have had several fights, and some bright prospects of several duels, but it seems there is u law of Congress to prevent any duels. Hut there is still pretty comfortable assurance, that we shall have several regular street-fights, between the old parties in Washington, before a month is over. It is really most amusing to see the pathos and sympathy expressed by the party papers in relation to their own side, and their vindictiveness against their opponents, in reference to this matter of Stewart of Pennsylvania, Weller of .Ohio, and Shriver of any where. We don't see that there is a shade of difference between the morale of any of them. They are all alike. All belong to one or other of the old, corrupt, rotten factions. We cannot reasonably expect different conduct from them. But we do trust they will go on, and if there is a " lower deep," that they will have the goodness to go-ahead on the principle of the renowned David Crockett, and let us see it us soon as possible Once the lowest poi t of degradation be reached, we will have some prospect of the commence ment of reform, but not till then. We may now expect h number of very exciting particulars of a street fight, or one in the House of Representatives, or in the Rotunda, or any where they may choose to meet. And until we do, we shall consider them as having disappoin'ed the just expectations of the country. Next News from Europe.?Advices from Europe, especially from England and Ireland, are now looked for with interest and anxiety, by merchants, repealers, philanthropists, and others. One day's later news may be of the greatest importance. Our last letters were dated the 4th inst. Then cotton had gone up, and the market was very active, which h_s thrown our dealers into a s ale of excitement. Then, too, every preparation was making in Ireland for the State Trials, which were to begin in eleven days thereafter, namely, on the ]5th. Advices relative to the price of cotton may be expected every day. In the state of the market when the Britannia sailed, it would not be surprising if a reaction took place in a day or two after her departure; and the Hottinguer, a very fast packet, which was to leave Liverpool on the 6lh inst., may therefore bring intelligence that will fix the price of our great staple for the season?either to send it up or down. In this view, all who are engaged in the trade will be on the utmost ywi vive for her appearance, and also for the nrrival of the Roscius, another last packet ship, which was to sail a week after the Hottinguer. The latter has been out twenty-three days, and is consequently due. In regard to the State Trials every one must admit that their beginning will be the most important. It will indicate the course to be pursued by the Repealers in their future movements, and also that of Sir Robert Peel for the government. It appear ed by our last intelligence from Dublin, that the elements of u tremendous explosion were arranging themselves in that devoted city, and the "oyez! oyez!" of the crier of the Irish Court on the morning of the 15th, may have been the signal for a revolution throughout Ireland. It is, therefore, to be seen that news from the other side of the Atlantic to be received in the next month will be of the most exciting and important character. Who can tell what a day will bring forth. It can hardly be expected that any of our fine packets will bring intelligence of the probable outbreak in Ireland; that will undoubtedly come by the Caledonia, which will leave Liverpool an the 5th ol next month ; yet as these packets have made quick passages, we shall send our news fleet below, and keep iliern there till advices of all these great movements are received. We thus make a sure thing of it. We shall at all events, receive direct intelligence relative to the cotton markets, which will affect millions of dollars' worth of property, not in cotton alone but in all American products. One lias an influence upon the others. Street Inspector of Second Ward.?Where is the street inspector o< this ward I All the cellars in Nassau street, between Fulton and John streets, are inundated with water front somewhere, owing to the gutters freezing up, and the street inspector cannot be found to remove the difficulty. Where is he 1 Writs of Quo Warranto.?We understand that writ# of tjuo warranto are to he issued against Hanuiel Wnndell, recently appointed one of the Port Wardens of this city, and Wm. Tyack, the Master Warden, to compel them to show by what authority they hold the before named offices. The law of this State, authorizing the appointment, makes it necessary that persons holding these appointments shall have been in command of a #hi| or vessel for two or more years, or have been h branch pilot out ol this city. It is alleged thiv neither of the above named gentlemen posse#' these qualifications. If so, they will be ruled out. Mori: Mails Due.?There are now eight or mm mails due from New Orleans. No mail south o Philadelphia yesterday afternoon. Annual Report op thf Citv Inspector.?Th< i substance of this interesting report will be found n the proceedings of tha Hum J of Aldermen ! Astoi'ndino Financial Disclosures?Biookai phy of tub Commercial Bank.?One of he most extraordinary disclosures with which we have re cently met, appeared yesterday morning in- the , I shape of an advertisement lor the sale of the asaets I of the late Commercial Bank, published in the Courier 4" ?n^u?rer, by M'. K. M. Blatchford, the re- 1 ' ceiver. The whole amount of these assets reaches . probably one or two hundred thousand dollars, but how much they will sell for, is more thun we can J tell. ; Among the names on the paper we find those of 1 many distinguished political, literary, scientific, t moral, pious and religious characters of New York, \ particularly the clu/w connected with the late Commercial Bank. To our astonishment we find the . . . _ .L: I name oi our triena Morris, ine song-writer, m hub . concern, and, we believe, much to his damage.? , I We also find the name of R. W. Redfield, in con- f . nection with a variety of noteB of one shape or an- s other. The history of this Redfield in connexion , 1 with that Bank was very well known at that time ( r We ulso see the name of Nichols, who ran away 1 | with two or three hundred thousand dollars of the 1 > Life and Trust Co. We perceive also the name of 1 the highly respectable Barnabas Bates, who has ' l been lecturing on postage reform for several weeks ' 1 past. It now appears that in those years gone by 1 he was endeavoring to reform the Commercial ' 1 Bank as far as he could. But perhupSjthe most cu. rious circumstance of all is, that we have two of i the most trusty and worthy officers of the general government in the curious and mysterious list. We t mean Silas M. Still well, the present Marshal, and , John 8. McKibbin, one of the appraisers, who is, ( we believe, just now before the Senate for confirm- c ation. Before, however, that body confirms this i ; gentleman, we trust they will look "at the adver- ( tisement in the columns of the Courier Enquirer t yesterday, and particularly the closing portion, just l above the name of It. M. Blatchford. They will [ see some very curious things there, which may aid t them in relation to their public duties in secret ses- j sion. ' i We believe we shall have to make out an accu- ' rate list from this advertisement, and publish it for , the advantage of the politicians, fpoetastors, litera- 1 tears, and moralists of the age. We should like to ' procure now, as an appendage to this, from!some i all-informed quarter, a full account ol the late ! North American Trust Company. We expect that , would present fully as curious and as rich a batch. 1 Movements of the Mercury.?According to ' the "oldest inhabitant" we have not experienced \ such a cold week since the "big fire" in 1835. Ii has been severe enough; yet we have felt a pufl of wind from the south compaied with what others have felt in our neighborhood, as the following table indicates:? State op the Thehmomp.ter. Move Below zero. zeroNew York, Jan 29, A. M., 3 Hartford, Jan 26, A. M., T Albany, Jan 2', A. M., 6 Piltifield, Jau 21, A. M,,14 Alexandria, Jan 26, A. M.,10 Og'lemb'K, Jan 24, A. M..20 Phi adel|>'<, Jau 26, A. M? 7 Berthier, C.,Jan 7, A. M.,36 Our harbor has not been so full of ice for years. Yesterday morning people crossed from Brooklyn to Castle Island, and boys have skated on the Hudson to Hoboken. In consequence of the ice no boats went eastward yesterday: the New Haven and Bridgeport boats started, and that was all. I' is one sheet of ice from here to Norwich, Stoniugtoii, and along that shore. In the North River and in the harbor the north wind that blew a little while yesterday, broke up the ice somewhat, and large icebergs drifted to sea, but the intense cold soon after supplied their places. Last Sunday morning, as we learn from Adams Ac Co. the New Haven had to force her way for six miles through ice at least afoot in thickness. Of course the great quantity of ice constantly breaking up and drifting about the bay scrapes our vessels a little, and injures them moy or less. We are glad, however, that no serious damage has been done. The packet ship Oneida, from Havre, arrived inside, the Hook last Friday morning, and was not towed up till yesterday morning. The ship Peter Innjs, foj- Gefle, which was carried ashore by the ice on Friday, i*off, und at anchor below the West Bank. The brig Patsey B. Blount, which sailed on Saturday, was obliged to put into Quarantine dock, witence she sailed'again yesterday morning. There is quite a 'fleet of vessels at anchor in Gravesend Bay, await' ting a chance to get to sea. The ship Martha Washington, Tyler, bound to Apalachicola, was caught in the ice yesterday while in tow of the Jacob Bell, near the South Ferry, Brooklyn,where she remains. Hundreds of merry skaters are to be seen everv Jay, skimming the frozen surface of the rivers. We give an extract or two to show the variety of our climate. [From the Quebec Mercury, Jan. 18.] ^ The heavy lall of snow on Tuesday was followed by , soft weather. Some hull fell, and afterwards rain, which t continued through the whole of yesterday. This change f of .weather did not,aftect the arrival of the mail or stage* ( [From a Berthier (Canada) Letter, Jan. 7.] a I think the day before vcsterday was the coldest day I |i ever remarked. At hall past two in the morning the a mercury in my thermometer (a good one, proved by Dr Robertson's) was down to 34J below zero; at day-light it t; stood at 36 below 0. This was the lowest 1 had ever seen I the mercury. I ran out for a moment to ascertain what h . fleet such a temperature would have on the lungs. I f can only compare it to inhaling moderately the strong r fumes of vinegar, causing a slight but continued cough, t liutto my other feelings I do not find it nearly so cold as I s have done at a much higher temperature. At Sorrel the < mercury stood a shade below 40. Now when you recol- > lect that my thermometer is suspended within three inch- t e* of my library window, which must in some degree in- | thience it, and that the one at Sorrel is so placed as to indi cate the true state of the atmosphere, the difference mayhave been expected, and only goes to prove the correct | ness of my own observations. [From Charleston, 8. C. Mercury, Jan. 23. J The season has been remarkably mild. From our win -low we can distinguish now the freshly opened leaves ol the morus multicaulis, and in the woods the buds have a very spring-like appearance. In protected situations 1 many varieties of deciduous trees and vines have retained their foliage in all the freshness of evergreens. At night, too, the frogs bid defiance to the season and sing in full chorus from every pond. Throughout the south this kind of spring-like, blossoming, bird-singing winter, has prevailed. Verily, we have variety. Latest from Canada.?We have advices from Kingston to the 28th inst. The Kingston Whig of ihat date says :? At length the winter has set in with all its ancient vigor. The bridge is fully formed to Long Island and the States, the southern branch of tha St. Lawrence having taken. Since Friday a pretty brisk trade with the Kington market, despite the protective duties, has been driven by the Yankees Irom Jefferson county. The Toronto Examiner has the following:? We are sorry to have to announce that there has again Itecn disclosed a serious extent ot forgery on the part of a ountry merchant, who has counterfeiter! the names ol mme gentlemen of respectability in this district. We urilerstnnd that four or five respectable houses in this city in- interested to limited extents. The care is undergoing iave*tigation,andthe party accused is in custody; it is mid that his family and connexions are highly respectable. We fear from what we have learned that the case is of such deci led character, that the deluded individual must undergo the legal consequences ol the crime charged against him. It was reported tnai me non. nenry Sherwood has been appointed Solicitor General. New Yokk Legislature.?In Senate, on Satur day, Mr. Foster, from the .Judiciary Committee, rejiorted intavorof the bill relating to the Court of Com mon Plea* in New York, with an amendment On motion if Mr. Bockee, the intervening order*, of hiuinen* were laid on the table, and the Senate went into Committee ol the Whole, Mr. Uurnham in the chair, on the hill to in-reaae the capital of the common nc.hool fund. (Add* to that fund the $84,000 received by New York from the land fund) Thia led to a debate, without any reiult Mr Auydam gave in a written report, in favor of establishing a State prison for the employment of convicts in the business of mining. Mr. Youngs introduced a hill for the more effectual protection of the rights of married women, hy giving Ihem control over their own property. Death of Judge Gaston.?We stop the prew to > announce the death of the Hon. William flaiton, one of the Judges of the Supreme Court of North Carolina. He expired very suddenly at the residence of Mr. Taylor, in r this city, last evening about 8 o'clock.?Raltigh, S. C. I Standard, Jan. 96.

Checker, in reply to Bishop Hughes upon the " Mixture >F Civil and liclesiastical Power ia the Governnents of the Middle Ages" was delivered last light in the Tabernacle, Broadway. The attendince was quite as large as upon the occasion of the irst lecture; but although the Lecturer spoke villi more emphasis and effect, the auditory apteured colder. The lecture, nevertheless, was veil received?so well, indeed, that Mr. Cheever vaa easily jiersuaded to deliver a third, in conuec-; ion with the same fruitful topic. Bishop Hughes las thus brought upon his head not only a terrible uass of declamation, but a body of research nough to appal and bear down any controverliahst of ordinury muscle. But in these days, vhen clerical gladiatorship is so fashionable, we lo not know what deep and desperate polemics lome champion hitherto unknown to fame in this vay may not have yet in store for the amusement if the dear public. Cheever's lectures are to be lublished this morning; when the sparks which hey contain here and there will tloubtless light ipon the iuilammable tinder of some enthusiastic ollower of Bishop Hughes?may be the Bishop limself will take lire. Who knows 1 The usual forms of opening the meeting having ieen gone through, Mr. Cnuvii presented himself at the desk and he was

-eceived with some degree of warmth. The first point of nterest to which he addressed himself, was a refutation of .he statement put forth by Bishop Hughes, that it was to ;he despotism of the church in the middle ages we owed whatever we possessed of civil liberty. The comment ipon this assertion was, that, if we looked over the pages if history we should And that the world owed to the despotism of the Church of Home what it had ever possessed if prelatiral and ecclesiastical tyranny. If the original nind of the bishop led him to make such discoveries as ins, mine who iiou neu were compelled 10 iouow lum into listury ; they could not kelp it ; it was as natural as that he animals which wished to enter therein should lollow he Ark. He, (Mr. Cheever) therefore, was not to he darned for following the bishop through the events ol he middle ages ; that if the bishop instructed us in he use of fulminating thunder we ought to have a guide book to the consequences of the explosion ? de, however, came to the conclusion that such thunder, ind such bomb shells were much better suited to the dark iges than to ours. If Bishop Hughes led us to the cave of lie Giant I'ope, and told us to ubsurre the footsteps of :ivil liberty coming out of it, and we, upon looking narrowly, found rr.any footsteps going in, but none returning, and that the cave itself was a vast catacomb of dead nun's bones, sure he was that we were very wise in tellng Bishop Hughes we would put our liberty some wheie rise for safe keeping. If Bishop Hughes told us it was not to the genuine republicanism of the people, but to the very great aversion of the Church of Home to the union if Church and State, that we owed our liberty, we would tell him in reply, that our native republicanism was quite good enough for that?and we did not wish to have our veins opened for thegpurpose of any such ingredient being njected into them Our tree of liberty stood a naked tree ; at all events it did not spring from the roots if hierarchial despotism, nor could it flourish under any of its dark shadows. We found and felt the iffect of its dark shadows, however, where its balefill gloom was most pernicious, namely, in the public ichools for the education of our children?where hey kept out not only the elements of pure historical truth, but the light of heaven; but so long as the country stood, so long would we have these two things in our [itiblic schools?impartial history and the word of God. (Cheers.) Before he proceeded further, he wished, in one lentence, to correct a misapprehension entertained in the minds of some of the audience at the last lecture, when he presented theexpurgati ved school books to their atteation It was sup;>OHea by some that the work of expurgation tvas restricted to the Roman Catholic schools. The fact ivus, it extended through all the public schools in this ity. It was not only the Romish schools which had the passages he had before read blackened and expurged; but even into our Protestant schools the brush of the genius )f "fearless non-concealment" in the Romish Church had teen brought. (Cheers) The next topic taken up by Mr Whoever, was an investigation of the alliance between the tivil and ecclesiastical power, or in other words,the union if Church andstate. On this subject the Rev. gentleman ollowed the stream of history from the con. version ofthe Cmperor Constantino, who united in him elf the highest ecclesiastical with the highest civil auhority. He made himself by law the sunreme head of liu church upon earth, an authority which'Christ alone Kiueue'l; and from that period was to be traced the mix ure of spiritual and temporal power which had continued, ivith little interruption for more than fourteen centuries l'o thit was to he traced ail the evils the world had felt lut it was an alliance which could not hove taken place iad not the church before that period begaa to assume lomo characteristics of a worldly hierarchy. The mode n which the church was prepared was described to be in he setting out of diocesan divisions, assisting in the poli:ical defence of the empire, the erection of judiciary ourts, in convocations and councils. Constantino in le falising the courts created their position and authority le created in fact, a new worldly power by consolidatng and combining spiritual and temporal authority ind the ideaol a separation between the two had been lost ight of and forgotten ever sli ce by Kuropean nations, le contended that at no subsequent time had he Romish Church disavowed the union between Church uid State, except it was for the purpose of arrogating to lerself all power in both?when she said " I am the State, ind from me all temporal, a:i well as spiritual power Iowa." She never denounced the union except so far ns t lessened her own power. She always maintained it, if hereby she increased her power, anu she only repudiaed it in order to control the State. He characterized the lapacy as the centralization of all power and despotism, ind declared that when civil and ecclesiastical power me' n her, the point where they united was a point of cnornous oppression and crime. This was a most nstructive historical fact. In fact the union of the lowers civil and ecclesiastical, had always proved a ompound blowpipe of despotism, which burnt up every liing. Having exhausted this branch of the subject, Mr ^heever referred to an admission of Bishop Hughes, hat the union of Church and State, which chn acterized the Church of Rome, was an " historical iccident." It was a singular accident, he remarked, vhich took fifteen hundred years in happening? ind which was- still happening every day. But, added he Bishop, if tiod had ordered the affairs of the world diferently for 1,Midyears, this accident would have hapimied differently! Acute reason ! The next (and fourth) ;reat principle forhiing part of the Rev. gentleman's reily to Bishon Hughes, had reference to the employment f civil penalties by the Church of Rome tor the compul ion of conscience in religious things, in which of course he Inquision passed under severe review. This branch, ike tne others, was treated historically, the factscited leing considered as the dreadful results of the alliance tetween the civil and ecclesiastical hierarchy. It is unlecessary to mention the persecutions, massacres,and tor. ares to which the llev. lecturer referred; he accused all lects of resorting to them except the Quakers. On the luhject of excommunication he was especially eloquent) ma ne coiueimeti mm 11 the Komiih Church hart he power at this dav, she would exercise the same lieriecuting spirit which had always distinguished her. Part of the, oath taken by all her Bishop* was : "HereIra, schismatics, ami rebels against our aforesaid Lord the Tope] and|hls successors, I will to the utmost of my :>ower persecute and oppose " The entire oath would be found in Barrow on the Supremacy of the Pope. In conclusion, he contended he was justified in calling her a' [his day a persecuting church, because she would not modify any of her doctrines, and her Bishops were res ponsible not to the people here, but to Rome.

This talented young lady gave her first concert Inst evening at the Washington Hotel, and fully sustained the reputation of being a superior pianist, which she had acquired at Knoop's and Ole Bull't concerts. Her style hears the stamp of Kalkbrenuer's method, which leaves knocking nnd tour? rft farce of the wrist to the worshippers of the modern eccentric school, and confines itself merely to the fingers, as Beethoven and Hummel did. There was much originality in Miss Gjertz's conception of the different pieces she chose, and although she played them nil beautifully, we give the palm tc 'he first. Mr. Rapettiand Madame Otto acquitted themselves of their respective moreenux with then tsual and well-known bravourt.

And such was the scene presented at the residence of Mrs. Revendear last evening about the hour of eight o'clock, P. M. A few minutes after that hour a lady, just passing that delicate line, the meridian of life, and in whose magnificent person, youthful grace and elasticity still maintained a not altogether unsuccessful contest with that redundancy of charms, which may well be more dreaded than its opposite extreme of leanness?might have been seen sweeping into the brilliant but unoccupied drawing-room, with all the majesty of the haughty consort of imperial Jove. "This will do !" exclaimed she, in tones of silvery sweetness, after a calm survey of the apartment, whilst a smile of satisfaction played around her full, moist, deep-red lips, and with the slightest possible toss of a head of faultless symmetry. This was Mrs. Revendeur, the daughter of one of the richest soap boilers in the State, and the lovely and irreprouchable wife of Mr Revcndear, one ol the most sagacious, knowing,wide awake dealers in every thing, from a mouse trap to a hundred thousand acres of the finest land in the world on the banks of the Mississippi. Mr. Revendear had tust made a highly successful "operation" in Wall street, and like a good, affectionate husband, line al once acceded to Mrs. R's request for the mean.to give a splendid party, in opposition to that one given some weeks ago by the distinguished Mrs. Cheatemall, of No. 16 Humbug Souare. Accordingly two hundred and fifty cards of invitation, elegantly expressed and engraved " in pure English style," had been issued, and every appropriate arrangement made for an entertainment " in pure English style," which would completely eclipse all the then fashionable parties of the season. About half past nine o'clock the guests began to arrive, and at ten, the rooms were completely crowded with the youth, beauty, fashion, elegunce, respectability, and intelligence of the metropolis Cotillon parties were immediately formed, and to the inspiring music of a fine German band, the gieater portion of the company were soon tripping it on the light fantastic toe.

The ladies?dear, charming creatures all of them ?danced most gracefully ; suffering with angelic resignation innumerable polite attentions from the heels of their partners, und actually bearing vvith>ut visible agony, the loss of several yards of muslin in the grand "promenade all round." The dresses of tne ladies were remarkably elerant?New York ladies always dress so well. A delicate pink or rose color on white satin, appeared to be the prevailing taste. But there were' a number of costly white needlework iobes, richly trimnad with thread lace.

Shi Toperly resented the attempt of the gallani oreigner, who gladly beat a retreat, not, how ver, without bearing with hint a trophy of hif irilliant representation of " high life below stairs,' n the shape of a greasy napkin, which one of .In ooks had very adroitly appended to the tail of hif ashionable coat.
