NEW YORK HERALD. Hew York, Tneedajr, Mknufjr 13,1M4. Tke Ureal ComnMrclal KulUment. On every hand the evidences are multiplying in favor of the belief that the year 1S44 will be marked, both in America and Europe, with extraordinary commercial excitement and activity. The first movement has begun in cotton, almost simultaneously in Liverpool and New York, and it will soon spread over the whole United States to New Orleans. Now we are glad to see these movements, and on right principles we shall aid them as much as we can. When the great staples of this country fetch a good price, every thing goes " merrily as a marriage bell." We have had several excitements ?religious excitements?moral excitements |>olitical excitements ; but of all excitements, commend us to that which puis money in the purse. The future looks brilliant with promise. Arrival of the British Special Envoy. H. B. M. ship Vestal, of twenty-six guns, Captain Charles Talbot, urrived early last evening from England, with tke Right Hon. RichardPakenhain, Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary from theCour' ofSt. James, on board, as passenger. J^he left Plymouth on the 16th ultimo, the sunn ?luy that the Europe left Liverpool, and, therefore, brings no luter news. Hut we have received by Iter the I^ndon Evening Mail of the 15th ultimo. The Vestal was boarded by our news-boat, live miles south of the Highlands, where she was left at anchor. She has experienced very severe weather on her passage?mote particularly on the 25th and 26th ultimo. On the former day she was struck by a sea, which sprung her bowsprit and knocked away the forecastle netting. And, again on the 8th inst., only one hundred and sixty miles from Sandy Hook, she met with a terrific snow-storm, which drove her away to leeward. This clipper sloop-of-war will he up to the city litis morning, when Mr. Pakenham will land. It is said that he will leave immediately for Washingtoil, to enter upon negotiations on the Oregon Question. We suppose that the Vestal will remain here to take home the Hon. Mr. Fox, the present British Minister to this country. It is thought, that in these new negociations, the Pakenham family will meet with another New Orleans. FouRiKtusM.?We perceive that one of the chief _r ,u- Mr UpUMlCa Ul II1U new KTCiui.w.., *?*.?. J. O..WSVCMVI Brisbane, conies out in that highly respectable organ of the new sect?the Daily Tribune?with a reply to U9, in name, in relation to the particular views of Fourier on religion, morals, parallelograms, harmonies, melodies, discord, concord, and all that sort of thing. His associate in this great business of restoring long-lost Paradise, and bringing about the new inillenium, Mr. Horace Greeley, having lost his temper completely, the senior of the firm lias taken up the cudgels with u great deal of good temper, moderation and spirit?just what we would expect from the sagacious and prudent apostle of a new revelation. Having at last brought these philosophers down to the common-sense level of propriety and decency, we shall now discuss the question with them, and ascertain what Fourier reully was?what he believed?what he intended to do?what they are about?what they expect to do?and what the whole thing will come to?in a few days. We mean to sleep once or twice on the matter, however, before we touch it again. Fourierism, like steaks taken from the haunches of a newly-killed tiger, requires a good deal of cooking, and appropriate condiments before it is fit for discussion. Webb on Wills.?In another column will be found a very searching article from Herman Le Roy in reply to J. W. Webb, on the Stewart Will case. We do verily believe that Jarnes Watson Webb, in losing his supposed legacy from the Stewart estate, has actually lost his senses. Day after day he is pouring out bis gross and outrageous abuse against Mr. Lispenard Stewart?against his whole family and connexions?against male and female?against the living and the dead. Wc never saw such a violation of the decencies of the press as he has furnished of late. And for whatl Because Lispenard Stewart would not give him nearly half of the whole property left by Robert Stewert in equal proportions, and thus rob his sisters of their just rights. If Webb goes on much longer, his friends, if lie has any, will have toprocure a strait jacket for his es|>ecial use. Tyler Movements.?We |>erceive that great efforts have been made to get up Tyler demonstrations in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Maryland. These movements are not without some connexion with the recent nominations of certain distinguished politicians to offices in the Cabinet. When we put all these things together, it is evident that Captain Tyler is putting on his boots and spurs, and has taken his whip in his hand, and intends to manage tne coach of State hereafter in his own way. More kxrraokninarv Social Developments.? We understand that the famous case of Van Cott, which was tried here a few weeks ago before Judge Kent, and was so rich in most extraordinary developments of the state of society in certain quarters here, will be again brought up to-day or to-morrow, and that a flesh batch of witnesses are to be produced. This new evidence will, it is said, exceed the *ormer in richness, and be much more curious, startling, philosophical, und perhaps more Fourierite. There certainly is no place like New York for novelty, amusement, philosophy, religion, <>l>era, and cotton excitement. The Italian Opkiia.?The success of the Operas astonishes even the most sanguine of its friends. Last night the house was more brilliant and crowded than on Friday, and it contained $1401)! This ik ?urely the full sunshine of prosperity. The array ol elegance, fashion and beauty was perfectly dazzling. Ft was New York in its palmiest days. It wai remarked that there were more lovely women in the house than had been seen collected aince the tune of Kllen Tree's triumph at the Park. And eve ry Fnaly waa delighted. The applauae was hearty and aincere, and univeraal?juet the kind ot applause that artist* and managers value us they would a ahower of hank note* And no one could help being pleased. The magnificence of the house itaeli?the elegance and propriety of all tint arrangement* for the comfort of the audience?the politen aw of the doorkeepers and ultendaats?every thing wan in refined and exquisite taste. There's no help for it?we're now fairly in for the Opera excitement. Tmr Plaoitk eons to t*r Unitko .Statks.?We see it stated in some of the penny papers thst a new dineane, xuppoaed to be the plague, haa made its appearance at Saxony in Massachusetts. About halfa-dozen |irr*oaa had died suddenly after picking some Smyrna wool, which was thought to have conveyed the infection In die present dearth of medical business, we think it would t?e a very good thing lor the physicians to get up some plague excitement. It's now ten yrars since we had the cholera, and the plague excitement might go very well. The ttalens will think of this InmoviJki.?We are ha|py to observe that Mr. Webb of the Co oner begins to read the Herald, and not only to read but to digeat ?to quote, to htiidy mid to follow th* rlioic* do< trifir* ol the Herald, particularly in cotton, flood?go ahead You may philosophise in cotton?but not in straw hats 11.misteAlios* or ntr Mvmuixsor Paw*.- Ia Clerc, a very celebrated artist, the of Baror de tiros, has just issued a very beautiful diiion o| the illustration* to the Mysteries of Paris, in lith>e graph 9*e advemseineat ggq New Litebary Movement.?An advertisement yesterday's Htrald is calculated to excite some very interesting re (lections, and hold out encouraging promises of u new and better era in the history of literature. It will be seen that Morris, Willis dr Co., the proprietors, editors, poets, reviewers, aketchers and story tellers of the " New Mirror," have commenced the publication, in addition to that work, of " extras," containing the choicest works of the modern poets. This is indeed a singularly interesting movement. Heretofore men of talent and genius have been completely in the power of publishers altogether destitute of literary taste, who have literally fattened on the bruins of starving authors. These publishers have almost universally been mechanics, or men of small means, who have gradually accumulated some money, cmbiirki'il in till' hiitilichin? tiiiaineaa anil cvrnlll. ally controlled the destinies of the whole race of uuthors, who have trembled at their nod, ar d gladly accepted whatever was offered for their productions. Thus we have rejicatedly seen a blockhead publisher amass a princely fortune by the sale of a work lor which the poor author received only, as it were, a crust of bread. We have examples ol this on all hands. Here in this city, (or instance, no one accuses the IIar]>ers, or the Appletone, of any preleusions to literature. They are mere plodding men of business, and estimate brains, genius, intellect, talent, literary acquirements by the old rule? " Kor what'n the worth ol any thing But just so much as it will bring ?" Yet they, like this race every where, have grown rich?have wielded the sceptre in the wide domain of literature?have given laws to genius and talent ?saving unto the poor, bagging, cringing, abashed man of letters, " thi* day thou must starve," or, " this day thou shall have a dinner," or, " this day thou muy'st rejoice," or, "this day thou may'steat thy very heart in comfortless despair." Now we are persuaded, and so have we long believed, that to this unnatural proprietorship of men , of literary talent, by men of the world merely, j may be ascribed u very large share of the sutler- , ings, misfortunes, losses and privations of those ( who seek to live by their pen. True, amongst publishers there have been and there are men of lurge and liberal soul?true, devoted, thoughtful, wise friends and patrons of genius, but generally speuk in?, tiie less said about it the belter. Well, then, we are glad to jierceive uny indication of u "change in this matter. We do rejoice that literary men are beginning to unite with the business of writing, the business of printing, publishing and selling their warea. About the value of the talent, the individuuld talent in the aggregate talent, of Morris, . Willia Ar Go., there may be a difference of opinion, but they are of the craft, and draerve all praise for their effort to free themselves from the Kgyptinn bondage of dull taskmasters. And no doubt they will succeed. They will make a very handsome thing out of this new business. It was Park Benjamin?himself a literary man?who started the great business of cheap republication in this country. We can refer to our own case, as illustrative of the advantages resulting from a union of literary and business effort. We know nothing about printing?we know nothing about the mere mechanicul details of a newspaper?but we know how to make a good newspaper, und our previous habits hud given us business talents, and we united these forces, und with what result, we are willing to let others speak. So we wish Morris, Willis & Co. all success, and to say to their brethren of the ciaft, " Go and do likewise." Ouk Packet Ships.?Since 1844 came into ex istence, our tine pacxet snips nave neen mumming the sea at a rate seldom equalled. Look at the following passages recently made to this port Time of Sailing. Jlrr. at N. York Dayt. Ship Virginian,Allen,from L'pool, Jan. 3, Fab. 4 33 " Montezuma, Lowlier, " " H "8 37 " A. Heard, Farley, Bordeaux, " 13 " 7 3ft " Roscius, Collins, L'|iool, "14 "8 34 " Quebec, He bard, London, " H " H SO " Ilottinguer, Bailey, L'pool, " h " h .10 " Iowa, Lines, from Havre, " 8 "8 38 " Francis I, A ns worth, Havre, " I " 8 34 " St. Oeorce, FerrU, L'pool, " 14 " 10 30 " F.urope, Furber, " " 10 "II 38 " Cohota, Hepburn, " "8 "II 33 " H. Hudson, Moure, Portsmouth " 13 " 13 38 Such passages as these cannot be surpassed by the " canvas back" nliipa of any other port of the world. Fteamships ran certainly bfht this time but not with wind instruments. Our "canvas hacks" cotne out second best without the consumption of twenty-four tons of coal per duy at a cost of six dollars a ton, and without being covered with coal dust. They make a clean run from port to port. In quick p.tssages, we ought to include the lie'public, from Liverpool, and Moselle, from Havre, ut Boston, the former in twenty-six days and the latter in thirty. Although the latter stalled from Havre with the wind playing, "On the Banks ef.the Blue Moselle" through her rigging, the Iowa from the same port beat her one clear day and an hour. Capt. Lines of the Iowa will throw in the hour and call it a day. This is certainly fair enough. But many of the ships in thus skimming over the waters have been badly used by gales. The Montezuma, Iowa and Virginia, dipped into a severe hurricane on the 29th ult., in which they suffered some ; and on the 30th,lthefCohota took her share of the same. Annexed is an account of it by Capt. Hepburn. On the 30th ult. in lat 43 40, long 63, a snow storm commouced from N. K. shifted to S. K. then to 8. W. blowing heavy from each of those points; thence it suddenly shift ed to N. W. and blew a hurricane ; the close reefed maintopsail was split and frozeu, the ship was thrown on her beam ends, the steerage flooded with water, ship covered with ice, six of the crew became disabled from frost and bruises ; wore ship after the gale abated, and ran into the (iiilf to thaw the ice,and repair the damage caused by the gale, and had been forced by westerly gales as lur couth hs lat. 3ft ; hail been on soundings to the north of the Capes of the Delaware three days. It thtie appear* that our packet* not only rail faster, but go safely through worse weuther than any other ships not belonging to thin port. Musical Movements. We have private accounts from New Orleans relative lo the great violinists, Ole Bull and Vieux temps. It seems that Ole Bull gave four splendid entertainments in the St. Charles Theatre, and left New Orleans a few days before the 1st of February for Mobile. In Mobile he gave three concerts and then took shipping for Havana, intending to leave Havana in a month for Vera Cruz and Mexico. and be back here by the end of April. Vieuxtemps, who was accompanied by JScliuberth at the same time, gave seven concerts in New < >rlenns, four in the French Theatre, two in the Washington Baloon and one in the Theatre St. Charles. They left New Orleans on the 1st of February for Vera Crus and Mexico, where they will remain a month and then take shipping lor Havana. Thus, while Ole Bull was going to Mexico, they would be crossing each other, and return here in the month of April. All these concerts were rapturously applauded and crowded to suffocation. There are some remarks made in some quarters, to the effect that Vieuxtemps surpassed Ole Bull in obtaining applause; hut this is not so. Their merits are properly appreciated ; and Ole Bull is still considered the great genius. But hoth have as much money and as great crowds as they can possibly attend to. About the end of April or the beginning of May, therefore, we may cxjieot to see both these great violinists here, to excite afresh the musical/uror of the musical circles here. Tiik Si'kakixo Mai iii.vk.?This evening (Tues* lay) Mr. Faber will exhibit his ingenious speaking automaton, in the Stuyvesant Institute. This is a n? w .-ra indeed, when machinery can lie brought to practice orthography, arithinutie, and music. Where ii will end, we know not. Mr. Faber says that to-night the machine will spell, compute, and sing "Hail Columbia." f l>e\wsOie Iloriar Wsinwright from the pugilistic contest theological with Boctor Potts. The pot will have to boil alone. The UU Rebellion In Canada?lie tarn of Two American Patriots. We were culled upon yesterday by u respectable and patriotic American, named Stephen S. Wright, who has just returned front transportation in Van Dieman's Land, whither he was sent by the British authorities at Kingston during the late rebellious outbreak in the piovinces of Canada. Ilis object was to induce us to call the attention of those sympathisers here, who addressed the British government sotne eighteen months ago upon the subject of the convicts, to his case and that of another man, named Dresser, with the view of giving them an opportunity of rendering |>ecuniary and other assistance to enable them to return their homes, which are at a considerable distance from New York. The statement made to us by Wright is, in substance, as follows:?He and Dresser were in a party of two hundred, who left Sackett's Harbor in October, 1838, in a steamer, with the avowed purpose of ussisting the disaffected Canadians, and they landed at Windmill Point, just below Prescott, on the night of the 11th. They were armed and equipped as volunteer soldiers. Immediately after landing they were attacked by a considerable body of militia and regulars; aftPr fighting four or five (Jays, thirteen were killed, and the remainder, amounting to one hundred and eighty-four, were made prisoners. They were conveyed in a steamer to Kingston, where the wounded, of whom Wright wus one, were placed in a hospital where he remained seven days, and was then transferred to the common jail for three days. On the 22d December, he wus tried before a court martial along with twelve others; and after an investigation of an hour and twenty minutes, he was sententenced to transportation, whilst many of his companions in arms were sent to execution. Between ten and eleven months afterwards, Wright, Dresser, and sixty-six other American sympathisers < were embutked on board the ship Buffalo, which J first conveyed them to Quebec, where fifty French ( sympathisers were received, and then to Port Lon- i don, where forty-nine others were received ; and witti this rebellious cargo on board, the vessel pro- \ ceeded to her destination. In the first instance the convicts were not informed whither they were j bound, but when they had been at sea five days, i the Captuin, whose name was Wood, told thein he wus bound to Van Dieman's Land. A voyage of four months and a half brought them to Sandybay, I about a mile below Hobart Town, where they were , landed, and instantly attired in the dress assigned I to convicts in a penal settlement. The day after, the Lieutenant Governor, Franklin, insi>ected the convicts, and told them (so our informant stated) that he hud received no instructions from the home government with regard to them, but he had called his counsel together, and it had been decided to snnrio until inctriUU Tiiijuuy HiCiii mc puuiit. uauo utuii ma?iMv lions arrived from England. Their employment then commenced, and it consisted in breaking stones, drawing hand carts, and with similar occupations upon the roads, the labor of which is described as excessively severe. Sixteen or eighteen months afterwards the Lieutenant Governor paid them another visit, and told thein his instructions had arrived from England; and that, in compliance with them, the Canadian convicts were to work a probationary period of two years upon the roads in the public service, at the end of which, those who behaved well, would receive u ticket of leave. This ticket of leave authorised the convict logo into any midland district in the island, and there to make the best use of his time for his own interest. All seaports are prohibited places. Under these tickets, Wright and Dresser lived for two years, working very hard. Both, however, make bitter complaints of the food and raiment supplied to them?alleging that it was scanty and .inferior, whilst the huts in which they slept, were the most miserable places in the world. During this period, they certainly seem to have undergone considerable hardship. (Eventually they obtained a pardon and release by a fortunate.concurrence of circumstances. Five bushrangers had absconded from Port Arthur, and taken up arms, with which they were committing violence. With the view of securing these people, the Governor offered a ' 1 i r?n. . l.? In anti iree paruou hiui b |Jowugc uum uiv of the convicts who should apprehend them, bu non* volunteered for the service. At length however, Wright, Dresner, and three others, made the attempt, and after being out in the bush for eighteen days, they apprehended two out of the five absconded rangers. Their reward w.is u free pardon and a passage to London by the next departing vessel, and after a voyage of five months they arrived in the metropolis of England. The American minister in London, procured thetn a passage to New York in the ship Quebec which arrived here last Thursday. Wright and Dresser Hre now staying at No. 5 (iold street; where ussistunce will be of great utility in enabling them to return home. Wright fives ut Denmark, Lewis county, about 300 miles Iroin this city ; and Dresser, who is too ill to be removed, resides in Jefferson county, New York. The Wow.1) or Fashion i* Washinoton.?By far the moat attractive field of study to the philosopher in Washington, is to be found, not in the halls of legislation?-not in the noisy, disorderly, bickering House of Representatives; or solemn, prosy, twaddling Senate, but in the gay saloons, the hotels, the assembly-rooms of that curious city. Saratoga is all very well. There's uhundance of materiel there for a quiet, calm, observant anatomist of fashionable society, but in many respects Washington is infinitely more productive. Every grade and class from the snug farmer of the West, the proprietor of the cattle on a hundred hills, to the aristocratic planter of the South, with the blood of a family of a hundred years in his veins, are there represented. Members' wives, young, gay, goodlooking, uged, puiti, as the case may be?widows of all complexions and degrees?young ladies, just brought out, arid old ones just going out?tne maws as much diversified in character, refutation and person?nil mingled into one grade, present certainly n date of society, every hour exhibiting the most curious, amusing, and peculiar developments. The present season has been remarkably brilliant. On Tuesday last the Attorney General, who oceupiea the late residence of Lord Ashburton, gave a grand dinner to the Cabinet Ministers, the Judges of the Supreme Couit, and their families. Mrs. Madison and Miss Legure were among the guests. In the evening the second "assembly" came ofl with the greatest rrlat. All the beauty and fashion of Washington, with a splendid representationfrom Baltimore, New York, and other cities were there. Naval balls?" regal banquets"?suppers?thus republican simplicity is kept up and maintained at Washington. 11mrd of Supervisors. Recorder Tallmadge in the i hair. This Board met last evening in the Aldermen's room. A memorial to the Legislature was presented f.y the Counsel of the Corporation, asking so to amend the present School Law as to-give to the Board of Kducation the control over the exuetidil tires of mone) authorized by the present act, instead of allowing the Commissioners and Inspectors of the several Wards an entire ami unlimi ted discretion as to the amount and manner of expenditure in their.respectlve Wants. The reason urged for this change,'among others, is that the right of representation should be commensurate with the subjection of taxation, which principle is violated in the present law, as the mi-re representatives of the several Wants have the right to create a tax upon the whole city, independent of the will of the representatives of the remaining Wards. The memortal, and an act accompanying it, were referred to the Committee on Taxes, aud the act ordered to lie printed. The appropriation of $WH7, for constructing the school house in the Sixth Ward was adopted. A resolution to appropriate pill (lOnto construct a public school house in the lOilt Ward was referred to the t orn mittne on Annual Taxes, with request to call upon the ' ounsel of the Board for his legal opinion as to the constitutionality of the present School Law. lAmuMmenta, The American Miskum is rich in novelties and anni3ementa, one of the moat superb companies o( performers in America being engaged, and the most splendid entertainments taking place every evening. Last evening the saloon was fully and fashionably alien lei, and a more delighted audience we never saw. The whole performance was of the richest kind, and was duly appra ciated by every one. The house will tie crowded this evening. City Intelligence. Police?Monday, Jan. 12.?Officers Stephens anil Oil Hays arrested u boy named Timothy McCarty, who is supposed to have been one of the party who broke open the shop of Mr. Strung, in Nassau street, a few nights since. A large quantity of steel pens were found in his possession, which are supposed to have been stolen. Ks.cr.tvE* and Thief.?Caspar Woif, of No. T1 Orange street, was arrested by the same otticers on a charge of receiving two coats that had been stolen in Brooklyn. They were found in his possession. Soon after, a boy named FrancisBrown was arrested, from whom Wolf says he purchased the clothing. They were both committed to answer. Bourn or Assistant Aldermen?Monday.?This Board met last evening, but no business of interest was before | them. 1 Coroner's Ofiice? Monday, Jan. 12 No business? except the discovery of a little baby, found enclosed in a box, which is supposed to have been gtill.born. < General Sessions. I Before Recorder Tallmadge, and Aldermen Briggs and < Waterman. JiM>:s 11. Wiiitino, Esq , District Attorney. | Discharged.?'William P. Brown, (indicted for an assault , and -.attery on Martha E. Miller, wile of Cbailes F. Miller, on the U5th of January, 1843, during the celebrated alleged abduction,) was discharged from further attend- J ance, and his recognizances dismissed?a nolle prosequi having been entered by the District Attorney with the 1 assent of the Court, as the offence was committed in Westchester county. Case of Madame llestell.?Amiihosk L. Jordan, Esq , 1 appeared on behali of Madame llestell and moved that a t nolle prosequi lie entered in the case on which she was in- ( dieted for a misdemeanor,for procuring abortion from the 1 person ol Ann I'uruy in the year 1841. lie stated that, < after conviction, the ease hail been carried to the Supreme Court on a writ of error, and judgment had been received I on the ground that the affidavit oT Mrs. Purdy was read in ! testimony, before the Court of Sessions on the trial of the i aoc.usod, after her death. Under this decision, it being I unable to procure conviction, the Court ordered a nolle firutrijui, und the accused and her recognizances were I discharged. Case of Henry M. Hut, 4*.?Wm. M. Price, Esq. appeared 1 in comt on the part of this person, who has been convic- 1 ted of forgery, and stated that he was about preparing a bill of exceptions to the trial. The District Attorney said ' he should move for judgment on Friday next. We understand that it is not the intention of the prose- ' cution to urge the trial of any other indictment against 1 Kagge, if no exceptions are taken to the recont decision, lie will, therefore, probably receive sentence of five years, ( which will terminate the indictments against him. Saunders is still in prison, but will be sent to the House of Refuge as soon as the case of llagge is settled. ? Store llreaker.?A young man named William Groover, ' alias "Dutch Pet#," was tried on acharge of burglary in 1 the third degree, in entering the clouting store of J. L. j Murray, 121 Prince street, on the 23d of December last,and 1 stealing cloth and clothing valued at $360. A portion of the goods was found in his jmssesHion when urrested by ' watchman Gallagher, which were fully identified by Mr. ' Murray. The jury found him guilty, and he was sen- c tenccd by the court to the State prison for three years and six months. Fining Burglar.?A boy named William Banker was tried on a charge of an attempt to enter the house of Wm, Dubois, 13 Crosby street .about three weeks since, byfalse keys. The mmutcs of the house heard a naise at the door . which was slyly opened, and a night key was found in ' the latch. The boy was standing upon thestep, and on being asked what he was doing there, he enq lired if Mr White lived there. He was arrested and taken to the watch house, when twenty-six night keys were lound in his pockets. Tho defence called a witness who proved mm lie Ruw me uuy imu inu uup in uiu ttuetn. x nc jury returned a verdict oi guilty of an attempt to commit burg- ' lury in the fir?t degree, and the court sentenced him to the ' State t>rison for two years. j Jlataull and Buttery.?Edward Spragg and Thomas Kirk | wero put upon trial tor an assault and battery on Samuel < Kenny, city watchman, of Id Norfolk street, on the first day of November. The offence was committed at the De- ; mocratic County Meeting, held in the Park at that time . The complainant testified that Kirk struck him, and he | was afterwards attacked by several others. A witness. , named John H. Whitehart, testified that he saw Spragg i strike Kenny after Kirk had struck him. The defence, ( conducted by Spragg, called Abner Milliken, who testified that he was at the meeting, and that then; was a general ' row several times during the meeting. Michael Walsh was next called. He stated that there was a dispute be- <"

tween two sections of the democratic party on that occasion, which terminated in much confusion, and a general ^ row at the foot of the steps of the City Hall. He did not \ see Spragg strike any one during the time, but heard persons cbII out to him, and threaten to beat him if he came down from the stand Kx-Alderman Siialf.f proved that there was a general i disturbance. Mr. Isaacs testified to similar facts. \ Edward firtiSS summed up in his own behalf, and stated that officer Cockefair followed him round through I the crowd, and told him that he would arrest him if he committed any assault on any one of the crowd. That Cockefair had been sent after, but could not be found, to I attend here as a witness to sustain this statement, but he < would submit the case without further argument. < The District Attohfky did not reply, and the Court submitted the case to the jury. . The jury, after a short absence, rcturnod a verdict of guilty, but recommended him to the mercy of the Court. MtauU and BatUry.?Johu Kidabout and Thos. Brady were tried on u charge of aggravated assault and battery on Thomaa Gilchrist, one of the officers of the Chatham theatre, on the night of the 5th of December lait. The injury waa such that Gilchrist waa confined to hia houae for several wecka alter by an affection of hia throat, and at one time was not expected to survive. The inry returned a verdict of guilty, and the parties were ordered to appear on Friday for sentence. Ptlt lit i> r?m, again.?This man, who J waa indicted for1 obtaining two hundred and fifty dollars in money from Capt. James Ingram, of Brooklyn, by false pretences, in giving a dra'ton Messrs.

Mr. Webster opened < his argument for the heirs-ut-law of Stephen Girard | on Saturday at 11 o'clock. The room was filled an hour before the Court opened, and hundreds* of persona turned away unable to obtain admittance. About one-fourth of those present in the Court room were ladies, and all the Beats of the members af the Bar and halt the area behind the Judges were occupied by those who seem to have ps much tuste for the dry arguments of the law as wiser heads. The audience trespassed hard upon the Judges, and but few persons of the great multitude who desired to be present could get within hearing distance. The opening of the argument was remarkable ror all the unpressiveness of manner, clearness of expression, and power of analysis, for which Mr. Webster is so distinguished. The closing part of lis address for the day produced a thrilling effect ipon those who heard him, and many at times vere shedding tears from his eloquent defence of he power and influences of the Christian religion, riie Court adjourned at three o'clock, and Mr. W. lud not then concluded.

The in famous lUnders of J* W. Wnlib in the columns >f liia own paper, torce Me very reluctantly before the publte, in couueetion with the will of the late Hubert Stewart, Ksquire. It to certainly true that, on being inroimed, previous to his death, of the disposition made ot :he estate, without understanding the reasons for so doing, I had fully decided to oppose its probate, h-ving been perluaded to believe that there was a design to defraud me of my just rights. This deception was through the influence of J. W. Webb alone ; for years he had by misrepresentations anil lander in every torra poisoned my mind against various members of the Stewart family, and especially against Mr. Lispenard Stewart, until he hud no worse enemy than myicli in the opinion 1 held of him and freely expressed. This continued to be the case till the evening of reading Lhe will, and the explanations and reasons for so devising the property, as giving br General Sandford and Mr. Lispenard Stewart, when 1 discovered that I had been deceivid and entirely led astray, and at once voluntarily with Major B. H. Webb?who had been similarly influenced? withdrew my proposed opposition and avowed my wish :o have the will confirmed. On doing this, J. W. Webb urned to his brother and myself, and in the presence of very member of the family and also oi General Sand'ord, exclaimed "well! if you are rutistied, I'll make no jp|>??ition to your will?the property may all go the deKarther than this, 1 shall say little beyond what is conained in the accompanying letters, between F. B. Cutting ICsq., and myself. I instinctively shrink from noticing he published statements of this base calumniator, who, egardless of the sanctity of private life, drags forth to the public eye the most innocent and defenceless; those whose lex alone should lie their protection against such an out-age ; and dares to assert of one who bears my own name. > laisenooa in regard to which, when fust heard of, he re"used to confront on the plea that the was in hit own louse. I therefore leave thia wholesale falsifier to olludo o hit conscience and appeal to hit God?divcited at he it ?1 all personal responsibility, by a ttrokr of thr pen a ibield behind which he skulks and utsailt character with inblushing effrontery und without a thadowfof truth. The saner of tnis unprincipled man it too well known for me to attempt a portrait of his character. I IK.KM AN 0. LF. HOY. Nkw Yoax, Fed. Oth, 18-11. K B. Ct'ttind, Esq.? Dear Sib,?The publication in the Courier &. Enquirer >f thia morning deserves 110 other notice iroin me than limply to beg that you will inform ine of the nature ot ( our conversation with J. W. Webb, upon which his leter of the 10th Sept. last is based?*a letter so vile and scanlalous in its character, that 1 deemed it unworthy of any totice, as it bears upon the face of it the best evidence of he baseness of the man who wrote it. I shall have no controversy with J. W. Webb?a man ivho comes forward with a recklessness unparalleled, and nukes an alfidavit in direct opposition to the solemn oaths if six persons of respectability, whose characters are vithout stain or reproach. It strikes me, sir, that when he public read that aftidavit, it will cause a " thuddtr" in heir minds which no manufactured certificate* or testinony can overcome?no sophistry, however cunning or ilausible, and no affidavit, however bold, can refute unde iable truths. With much respect, Your obedient servant, HERMAN C. LE ROY. Nkw York, Feb. 10th, 1841. Herman C. LeRov, Esq.? Dear Sir,?Your letter of yesterday was not received intil a late hour last night, and engagements this morn ug iiavc not allowed mo me ume to vena an earner aniwer. In July last, immediately after the publication by Mr. Webb, ol an article assailing the character and honor of Mr. Lispenard Stewart, 1 was retained by that gentleman is oounsel in the controversy about to take place, in the lurrogate's Court, in relation to the will of the late Robt. ttewnrt. The inquiries which it became my duty to make into the circumstances connected with the making ol the will, resulted in the conviction that the imputations upon VIr. Stewart were unjust, and that instead of being acuated by selfish or mercenary views, liis intentions were lisinterestcd and honorable. It was in the course of my nquires us counsel, that I was informed that, in a letter to VIr. Stewart, you had expressed the opinion that he ought o settle upon Mrs. Le Roy a portion equal to one-fourth of lie estate. Shortly after the litigation had commenced before the Surrogate, I met Mr. Webb in the street, and we entered nto a casual conversation. I remarked to him (among ither matters) in substance, that I thought he hail done njustice to Mr. Stewart, and that as far as I had the moans it iuduinr. his conduct and viewi were unrisrht and hon irable. Something wns said by Mr. Webb In reference o the original o (monition to the will, and that Mr. Stewart ind managed to change the course of all but himself: in die course of the conversation I observed that you had txpressed an opinion to Mr. Stewart, that he ought to setle on Mrs. Le ltoy one-fourth of the estate, or to that efect, and that Mr. Stewart had declined to do so. Mr. Webb's recollection of this conversation in other respects litters essentially from mine. I did not apply to your proposition the epithets "disgraceful,"?"infamous," or Hhcr similar expressions. According to my best recollection it was he, and not I, who employed language of this description. Since this occurrence 1 have made your acquaintance ind have had placed before me all the communications 'hat passed, in relation to the proposition to which I referred in the conversation with Mr. Webb; and from this correspondence and the explanations that have been given to me, as well by you as Mr. Stewart, 1 am satisfied that you did not, in any proposition to Mr. Stewart, intend to assert any demand or make any claim in any degree inconsistent with your character as a gentleman and a man of honor. It is unnecessary, I think, to enter into a minute statement of all the circumstances connected with vour proposition, for however interesting snch details might he to ip Jinnies, tncpnoui; gcucianj sa uivic aisisiiavs* x^isb iw uw mestic and private controversies than those concerned in 'hem are apt to imagine. I think it enough to atate that you have satisfied me that you did not, in your communication to Mr. Stewart, intend to deprive Mia. Webb or children of their share of the estate; but that your letter was baaed upon the idea 'hat Mr. Stewart would voluntarily-relinquish his interest in the property, thus reducing the shares to Ave, and that Mrs. We.bb's share had been absorbed to the extent of the indebtedness and charges against Mr. Webb, which yon believed to be very large. If the estate should havo )roved sufficient to have left a balance in favor of Mrs. Webb's portion, after deducting the amount charged sgainst it, I am satisfied from your letter that you did not wish or attempt to deprive her of it, in any manner. Very respectfully, Your ob'dt servant, F. B. CUTTING.
