Weather?Politxct?Religion?Finance?Polli/. For the past fortnight it has been raining almost incessantly, and although to-day we have had the sun shining some, still it looks very much like a lady who is offended with her lover, and don't exactly know whether to be satisfied with his protestations or not, and is quite as likely to discard him as take him in tow again. So the rain is just as likely as not to descend again tn torrents to-night or to-morrow. You will, before you get this, have received the published proceedings of the State convention, held here on the glorious 8th ; but those reports, as you know, always put the best side out. This convention was a most curious atfair. First and foremost, it determined that Martin Van Buren was the lirst choice of the Louisiana democracy. But don't you believe that, Mr. B. Between you and I and the post, I know a thing or two, and here goes to let the cat out of the bag. Will it surprise you to leurn that in the convention?aye, and on the committee appointed to draft resolutions, too, there was a majority of Calhounitas?a majority of men who believe tnat Van Buren can never be elected, and who preferred the chivalrous statesman of the South, John C. Calhoun 1 Does that surprise you 1 It is nevertheless the fact. IIow, then, aid it happen 1 Why, by the management of the wire pullers in the parishes, who knew they could not send Van Buren delegates, but who contrived, by those admirable means which they have learned so effectually from the Kindernook Magician, to get these high minded southerners instructed to vote ior me useu up man. nueii was tne mode in wnicn Van Buren got the preference. But still there was a goodly hand there who fought manfully on behalf of Calhoun, and one of his supporters, in return for an insinuation made by a Van Buren man, that they wished by trickery (oh, heavens! that from u Van Buren man) to send Calhoun delegates, let out u broadside of red hot shot about party tricks and machinery, and so forth, which so astonished the wire pullers that for a moment they stood aghast, while he was pouring a most tremendous broadside into them; hut quickly coming to their senses again, they felt that it W9UW not do for them to let the south be heard so plainly, and the way they yelled and shouted to drown his voice, was a caution to the pigs. He stood his ground manfully, und said hissay,and then sat down in a towering passion, showing plainly that he und his friends were not going to he misrepresented as well as trodden upon. The gentleman who had made the insinuation then got up and explained as well as he was able for the fright he was in, that he " didn't mean what he said," and so that was ended. It was no use?Van, the wire pullers had determined,should be the man, and so he was by a vote of MO which was the number who voted for him, out of 160 which was the number entitled to be cast. After tins, they went on to declare Calhoun to be their second choice, and then passed a string of resolutions about the bank und the tariff; saying a national bank was a national curse and Congress had no right to pass a tariff except for revenue purposes, and instructing their delegates to the National Convention to insist upon a recognition by that body of these principles. By the by, these delegates were elected in a way which I think is original. The state delegates from each congressional district congregated together, and then chose their representatives for the National Convention, those for the state at large being chosen of course by the whole convention. This method was adopted because,although it lias something like a feature of the district principle, it yet threw the election into the hands of the wire pullers and secured the choice of Van Buren men as well as enabling them to instruct them to vote for that personage. The whole of these proceedings, however, showed to those who were eyewitnesses and not blinded by prejudice, that with Van for a leader, the locofocos in Louisiana will be beaten, and the vote of the State go for Henry Clay. So much for the convention. There has been a case here argued in the Commercial Court for the past fortnight, respecting a special tax imposed in the Second Municipality, and which is alleged to be illegal, and if the court so decide it will deftl a Hiroilf, r- . : .1-. - i MIC * cwffa ui.(ue, Wilts deserve anything but blessings from the working men. The glorious uncertainty of the law, however, as well as its delay, is proverbial, and if it be finished in a reasonable time it will add another proof to the many heretofore show.n that wonders will never cease. The suit instituted by the Wardens of the Catholic Cathedral against Bishop Blanc, for damages for the injury he has caused to the revenues of uie church, by removing the officiating clergymen, is still in progress, but slowly of course. Where both parties bleed freely the lawyers won't be likely to hurry. This day the eause, or rather exceptions, which had been taken by the , bishop's counsel, were being argued in the Parish Court. No one can tell what the result will be. All the most eminent lawyers ot tne city are engaged on one aide or the other. Jack son, Mis*. [Correspondence of the Herald.] Jackson, Miss., Jan. 3, 1844. Legislative Proceedings?Senators and Stucco IVork?Cotton Crop and Freshets?Theatricals. If the proceedings of the Legislatute will impart any interest to your readers, you shall have it in brief. Both bodies assembled on the 1st January, und at once went into election of officers. J. L. Tot ten, of Marshall, Was elected Speaker of the House on the second ballot; L. L. Taylor, Clerk, without opposition ; Jesse Speight, of Lowndes, President 1 of Senate. There can he no doubt of McNutt's , election to the Senate of the United States. [Jessae Speight, standing six feet six in his boots, 1 has been elected to the United States Senate.?Ed. Her. ] i The election of Mayor came off on the 1st, and : resulted in the choice of J. P. Olden, Lsq. The State House is a beautiful structure, anil certainly cannot be surpassed for interior beauty and elegance, short of the Capitol at Washington. Cotton has failed one-tliird in this section, owing to the heavy ruins. Indeed, it Iihh rained without | cessation for weeks ; the mud is literally knee deep: i worse, however, in VickBburgh than here. Men ot | business m V. have to he hauled in drays to their , stores. The charge for conveyance of two trunks from the wharf to the hotel is #1 50 Remonstrating against so exorbitant a rate, the negro bluntly 1 said, "Can't kelp it, massa, de horse here only last four months, den we turns 'em out and buy unobi er." The Chapman family have the theatre, and are likely to reap an excellent harvest. J. II.

Elfect of the Atmosphere on the Sight?Historical Research for a Loan?Genius, with an ()?Mighty Men and Mountain Mutton?Soirees, tpc. This is the coldest day we have experienced in this city in many years?the thermometer at 22 be low zero in the middle of the day. The sleighing is beautiful on the river, and stages ply hourly between this city, Hudson and Troy, on the river. It is aseertained that the ice between this city and Troy is nearly five feet thick. This is the thickest ttint has ever been known before, by the oldest residents. i The legislative proceedings are us yet of but little moment. The most spirited debate that has taken place came on to-day in the Assembly. It , was on the application of the county of Jefferson for a loan of money to defray the expenses of public

schools and other embarrassments that this county has been in for two or three years past. | Mr. Lee, of Kric county, opened the discussion in i a very spirited manner, but in the course of Ins. spcccn he flew over the history of the United States from the time of the election of John Adams to the present day, and from thence to other countries. Mr. Lee is deci le i|y a sm irt ^leaker, and a man of ready wit and gie.it flow of words; whether to th" subject or noi, he kcejw up a tremendous talking The constituents of Mr. Lee have no reason to lie ashamed of their representative, for he does them honor. At the clone of Mr L.'s speech, several gentlemen sprung to their feet to reply; but tlie floor was conceded to the gentleman in the corner with a grey coat, Mr. Michael Hoffman, of Herkimer county, who uext address II I I II II II IRK 1 NING, FEBRUARY 2, 18 i*d the house on the subject. Mr. H. commenced by sjieaking of the unbounded latitude given to the debate by Mr. I^ee. His remarks were very strikingly appropriate, and were well received by the ' House, for he kept them in u continued roar of laughter for a quarter of an hour before he got seriously engaged at the work of dissection and overthrowing the argument of his opponent, which he did in a masterly, and would seem, most satisfactory manner. Mr. 11. is the genius of the House? a person that hears him speak once will bear remembrance of him for u long time?his manner of delivery is easy and interesting, every hearer is enraptured and carried with him by the peculiar and extraordinary manner in which lie handles all great matters of interest to the State and nation. In the Senate nothing of interest lias transpired worthy of general notice. Major "Deva/ac was in great ecstasy yesterday, on receiving the letter from General Jackaon in answer to the resolutions of the State legislature. The Major never appeared more rejoiced and happy than when he announced to the House the rccejition of this letter from the General. Among the men of renown and distinction now in the city, 1 will mention General Storms, Chas. McVean, Charles P. Daly, William H. Lewis, Chester B Howes, Mr. O'Sulhvan, Charles Godfrey Gunlher and General Aaron Dederer. There will be one of the most magnificent affairs, in the line of soirees, on Thursday evening, at Congress Hall. It is expected Benianiin W. hichards and Reuben Leggett will be present, as they have been invited by the Committee appointed for that purpose. These are the most select parties given in the city, as they are under the management of the proprietor, or several gentlemen of the highest respectability in the city?appointed for the purpose of inviting persons of distinction, an honor he has done on the present occasion. 1 shail be present at this grand Jubilee, and may possibly give you u faint ideal of the decorations and company present. Respectfully yours, One oi *1 hem. Albany, Jan. 30, 1844. Aete York Anointment* Confirmed?Charitable Proceedings in the legislature, fyr.?Movements of Van Buren?Daguerreotype Views. My predictions, in a former letter, as to the individuals who would receive certain appointments in your city, have 111 every particular been verified; the Senate to-day have confirmed them all, alter a steady cHwrt on the part of Senator Varian, for the last week, to send them back to the governor. McVean is your Surrogate, Charles P. Daily your Assistant Judge of the Court of Common Pleas, T. Jefferson Smith, Judge of the Murine Court; McMurray, lute member, Master in Chancery; Lorenzo B. Shephurd, Examiner in Chancery ; Samuel S. Wandell, Port Warden. You will see by this that the old hunkers in your city, and their representatives in the Senate, have been most signally defeated by the Barn Burners, and that their days of power are now at an end, the certuinty ol which fact, has given to yourdelegation here much rejoicing. Varian (ought like a tiger till the last moment?(Scott having purposely left some days since for your city)?and when he saw that all was gone, he made his exist from the Senate, looking the very personification of despair. Houck is in the right track just now, but how long lie is likely to keep in it will be very hard to determine, for you must know that ihe Governor is a lamentably weak man, and in all matters of interest is controlled by the Croswellian clique. The Assembly has already gone through with much business, but, as yo*i may have noticed, of little general interest to the State. Some forty or fifty acts of incorporation for charitable bodies have been passed, but beyond this nothing has been done. The question now under discussion, and which has been occupying the attention of the House for the past week, to loan out of the School Fund to two towns in Jeflerson county, some two or three thousund dollars to build a bridge, will likely be disposed of to-morrow, and decided against granting the loan. This is as it should be, and so long as Hoffman is in the House, you will have but ' ro'w'rlK counties, or individuals. The speech of the Admiral to-day upon the subject was one oi his most powerful ertorts, and was listened to by crowded lobbies, and a well filled house, with admiration. That old man is the greatest by all possible odds of nny in the State, and will, one of these dayH, be the Governor, perhaps in 1844. Mr. Van Buren left this city for Kinderhook last week, and will not return to it again this winter.? He is very fleshy, much more so than when I saw him last summer, and confident in his success for the Presidency. During his stay here he has kept himself very private, and when the subject of politics has been introduced in his compnny, he has labored to change it us speedily as possible?the quidnuncs look upon this as something very marvellous. Bosworth. from your city, it is said, has been overrated?ne is not third rate in the House ; in fact he has many superiors, as has any man. I intend shortly to give you a true sketch of the characters, worth and standing of each member, who may be worthy of the notice, in the House and Senate. The weather here this morning was 12 below zero?the oldest inhabitants don't recollect a winter of such severity for many years?it is now, 41' M. trying to snow, but can't make out?the cold is too severe. Joe Smith, Jr. Latest from Argentine.?The Rosabella at Salem, brought Buenos Ayres papers to the 18th ol November The most important news in that of a decisive victory of the Buenos Ayrean General l.errando Gomez over General Silva, of the Montevidean forces. with moo men, at Cerro del Pelade, near Maldonado. Klores, with thejremnant of his forces, had joined Silva a few days before, but the united Generals are said to have attempted to avoid an engagement. Gomez, however, came up to them by a forced march and completely routed them. The defeated force is reported to have lost 300 killed, with 70 prisoners ; nod all the spare horses and baggage, with about 300 carbines, fell into the hands of the victors The latter report only eight killed and ten wounded, and they entered and occupied Maldonado, which had been previously evacuated by Rivera, on the 9th of Nov. The latest intelligence represents Rivera as having been driven almost to the Brazilian frontier, closely pursued hy Gen. Urquiza. The Buenos Avrean papers, entirely in the interest of Rosas, sneak in bitter terms of the course of the British Golhmoanre Purvis, with regard to the blockade, as having been the means of tirolonging the war. Rosas, by a decree of Nov. 9th, requires the consignees and shippers of vessels, exporting any articles ol provisions, to giva bonds that those articles shall not reach Montevideo. The season was at its pleasantest at Buenos Ayres. Fears, apples, and peaches were of good size, and straw* berries bud been rino about a fortnight. The city was aid to be quite healthy. Fires tn Maine.?The woollen factory of Farrar (te Cutler, in Dexter, Me. including the dry house und dye house, was destroyed by fire, on the night ol' -J.'ith lilt. The manufactured goods were principally saved. The buildings ami machinery were insured at the Worcester Mutual Insurance ollice for filrt.iHMl; the stock and manufactured goods at the .V.tua Insurance ottice, Hartford, tjiWKMI.
