NEW YORK HERALD w York, Saturday, February tt, 1R?4. Revival of Trod*, Fuhton and Kitnrt ( net for 1844. The bubble is beginning to swell out and ascenc again. After depression ia every department ol trade and industry for several yearn*, we are beginning to construct anew all our former gaudy edifices of speculation, and probably on a better foundation than ever has been presented for that favorite species of architecture in the United States. There can be no doubt of an extraordinary revival in trade through all its avenues, in all parts of the ountry. But at the same time, every symptom ia present, of an equal revival of bubbles?of speculation?of fashion?of extravagance?of folly?ol refinement?of immorality?of all those mixed developments of the human head and heart, whicl mark a period of great prosperity. We have now in this country, as the basis o our currency, probably over one hundred millions o hard dollars?not oi that imperfect character whicl formed the basis of the currency of the Nortl American Trust Co.?but perfect, hard, sound ringing dollars, either in the vaults of the banks or ia circulation. Sueh is the basis on which the present prosperity rests. We have driven out of ex istence about one hundred and fifty bubbles ant uaaas, vrmi a nominal capuai ui wun m>u ui unci hundred millions of dollars, so that if the presen banking institutions take care of themselves ant net prudently, they can do pretty well for a few years to come. But above and beyond all thest things, we have immense crops, and a cotton croj alone, whose value has beeu increased from fortj to sixty millions of dollars during the last few months. So much on these points. In this city, however, the great centre of all movements and all speculations we begin to see growing up side by side, with the buds of spring, a spirit of speculation, that will be much more ra pid in its growth, and more disastrous in its results, than that which marked the years '35, '36, and *37. The spring bursts forth at once in all its beauty, glory, and magnificence, within the physical and commercial world. Speculations in cotton?speculations ir real estate?speculations in stocks oi all kindsspeculations in everything, are springing up on ail hands. Building lots in Union Square, which, at the highest period of 1836, brought $10,000, and which, two years afterwards, were sold for $4,000, are now purchased by some of our wealthy capitalists and merchants for $12,000, for the purpose of erecting palaces on them, as in past years. In four weeks the speculation in real estate in the upper and fashionable region- of our city have increased its value in the market from 50 to 200 percent. There is no harm in this for the present, and all looks beautiful?e unsliinc?all full of hope and promise of unexampled prosperity. But all those who enter into these movements must take care, and when the tide begins to turn, they will have to watch w ever onen eve on its movements, and not" its \ ry pulsation on the rock of time. Side if* with those speculations in the great taple tlie country to which we have allu parallel movements in society?in m theatricals?musical affairs?in building?in extravagance?in folly?in vanity?in every thing. All thia if properly regulated will tend to the refinement of the age, and the improvement of the present race. But if we permit ourselves to grow enthusiastic in getting rich?to throw aside prudence and discretion?and to launch forward in all the speculations that we have seen in former years, our next fall will be the greatest yet that we have seen in this country. It will be a revulsion from the effects of which its victims nevet can hope to rise. And if the one hundred thousand persons who took the benefit of the bankrupt law, and thereby repudiated three or four hundred mil. iions of debts, ever get into that position again, they will lose their tails without the slightest chance of getting them back again. That regenerating process they may depend on it will be altogether impossible. "We would inculcate, therefore, great prudence and great discretion and great quickness of comprehension on all those engaged in commercial and financial pursuits m those days. For there 13 danger ahead. There are many fortunes to be made, and much wealth to be gained, and much improvement to be achieved; but there are rocks and shoals and quicksands in the way, and only the wise and skilful mariner can escape them. Sinoular Conduct of a Unitrd States Commissioner.?In a report which api>eared in our columns yesterday, it appears that Mr. Mulligan,who officiates as a United States' Commissioner in the Court of Bankruptcy, ejected the reporters of the ' press from the room during the progress of an examination, which took place before him. On investigating this singular act on the part of the Commissioner, we have arrived at the conclusion, that he transcended his powers altogether?that he had no right whatever to exclude the reporters. In the city of London such a thing has never been attempted. There, we perceive, from the reports in the papers, these examinations are uniformly open to the press. We never heard of such a thing here. The refusal to admit the press is in direct opposition to the usual dicta of the common law. However, we are determined to set the mattei right before the public, and for this purpose we will bring it up before the United Slates Court, and ascertain what is really the law on this point. Affecting Discussion.?The science of Agriculture, now-a-days, begins, it would seen, to furnisli most affecting themes for the orutor and the poet Somebody complains that the age of poetry, like that of chivalry, has gone. But the " Farmer'i Club" of this city are determined to give the lie t< the assertion. They find even in poudrette a mos moving subject of poetic sentiment and pathos. A their last meeting several of the members discourset most eloquently on this exciting theme, and pou drette, it appeared on this occasion, was as ser viceable in promoting the growth of ideas as of cab bages. Mr. Minor bewailed the loss of thirtj thousand cart loads of " material," which wa wantnnlv cast into the rivers, in terms worthy of i poet lamenting the fall of " Some prostrate dome, Mingling itn marble with the duet of Rome !" Mr. Pike was equally eloquent. Mr. Stephens pilet still higher the agony. Dr. Field expatiated a length on the fertile topic. Col. Clark was pathetit on " cracked soils." Mr. Cummings was brillian upon mud. Mr. Minor again reverted to his dar ling subject, ind in a burst of enthusiasm, declare* his willingness to show farmers how to make ant use it. Talk of the age of poetry being gone Pshaw ! Ours is surely tht age?the millennium o poetry, when Pikes wax eloquent on mud, and Mi nors wring the heart with panegyrics on poudrette Important Et.ectton is Connecticut.?An dec tion for Governor and other officers takes place ii Connecticut, on some day the beginning of nex month. Accordingly both parties are the com mencing the canvass, by conventions, meetings, pro cessions, speeches, songs, truth, fact, fancy ant falsehood. On Thursday, the whigs held a grant convention in Hartford, which thousands attended They shout that the " Freestone State is on fire.' There must be an intense heat in Connecticut tc make freestone blaze like hickory. Very Latk from Sot th America.?The Mexican, Capt. Jennings, arrived last night from Buenot Ayres with advicea to tha Mth of December. There is not much news of importance, for newt from that quarter is generally of the same charac ter?Rosas with his atrocities; the French wit! their legion?|g?d Admiral Brown with hisbloekadt of Montevideo? It will be interesting to learn, that Montevidet has capitulated, because we shall look for peaci and a revival of trade with that section of thi world. (p* D? Waiiwju&iu', firm another ?h<>i Inn Pan* ymu osOtwofxak 'Manr-nanaBaaMMBVf The Grand Jury on tk* Recent Truwt aw Mo nit r> Corporations.?At last the voice of publi : justice begins to lift itself up against the enormou ; frauds and other rogueries, which have been pei ' petrated under the name of charters and incorp< rations. Yesterday the Grand Jury .in making ii ' final return to the Court of Sessions, closed wit f the following paragraph :? The Grand Jury regret that the enormous frauds ac . wholesale robberies that have lately been perpetrated b those who have been entrusted with the property < widows and orphans, in the form of stock in Trust Con Cies and other monied corporations, have not yet bee ught under their notice?aud that while they hav been occupied in bringing the smaller offenders to justici men who have grown rich upon the spoils of the plui dered, should escape the judgment of the law. ! We have every reason to believe that the nej , Grand Jury will take up all the broken Ranks an r Trust Companies of New York, and begin the ret . execution of justice. 1 Incident at the Temperance Cei.euration.Rather an amusing incident occurred at th f temperance celebration, in the Tabernacle, o ' Thursday last, in consequence of the remarkabl 1 injudicious conduct of Mr. Pierpont, in making a 1 altogether uncalled for and fulsome allusion t " Dan O'Connell, which very properly receive marked disapprobation front the intelligent portio ' of the large audience assembled on the interestin ' occasion. Mr. Levin, of Philadelphia, also, in hi ' subsequent address, alluded, in terms of pointed r< 9 buke, to the impropriety of mingling any politici t allusions with the advocacy of u cause which is en 1 phatically free fiom all sectarianism, all feeling < ' partizanship. ! By the way, speaking of the temperance inov< 9 ment, why is it that the clergy of this city hoi ' aloof from ill Here we have these divines cullini ' out, Sunday after Sunduy, against the immorulit; of the press, and the immorality of the age, bu I whnt are they themselves doing in the great worl of reformt Here, in this temperance movement they are utterly inactive. The hard-working me chanic, the humble layman of the middling an lower ranks of society, are the efficient, perse vering, faithful laborers, in this great work of be i nevolence and reform, whilst the clergy are, wit a few exceptions, silent, slumbering, and inactive 1 And can they point, in this cause alone, to any sue ' exertions, on their part, as those made by that ver ' newspaper press which they are accustomed to re ' vile? It is curious to remark, that it was in Ohio the the first total abstinence society was formed. Thi was at Niles, Trumbull county, in that State, t 1809 or 1810. Ohio has given birth to many othe great national movements. Here the song-singing log-cabin campaign, which resulted in Harrison' triumph commenced. Here, too, the ultra notion of Fourier have taken the deepest root. Th "Western Reserve" is peopled by a great man; ?r xt.... tr...t.,?j ...u. ... :r _ ' UICII 1IUU1 lien UHgiauu, " uw ait ttiiaiiiij) u iiu sound, at least bold thinkers. Ultra views on al subject prevails amongst them. The honor c originating the temperance movement, howevet will, in the opinion of all the friends of moralit and mankind, outweigh a vast deal of extravaganc in other matters. The Mails.?In reference to the recent blun ders of the mails to the South, we have receive! the following Post Orricc, Washington Citt, D. C.) Feb. 31, 1844. \ Si* My attention has thii moment been called to paragraph in the Herald of the 30th instant, in relation ti the slips of that paper not reaching the South in due sea son. If you mean slips for offices south of this city, I have ti say that distinct pouches are made up for all importan points along the entire route, from Now York to New Oi leans, and that the division of these pouches are made o the depot in this city, and those intended for the soutl are sent directly to the steamer, and never reach this office We receive only those intended for delivery in this city or for the interior and adjacent offices. I If you refer to those addressed to your subscribers ii this city, I can only say that the utmost care and puncti ality is observed in delivering them. .Some days since the Austrian Charge des Affaires com plaineil of the failure of your paper, and to avoid error, . caused the package to be examined, and found his omil ted Tb? day or two it has again heen Inaaiviill. There has heen. owinr to the obstruction of navicratioi by ice, considerable delay and difficulty in getting th mails through, which may have given rise to complainti This evil it is hoped is now removed. Respectfully, your obi serv't, WM. JONES, r. M. To the Editor of the New York Herald. We know Doctor Jones well, and we believe h is an attentive, correct and obliging officer. Th negligence, therefore, of which we complain, take place at the depot in Washington. We know i does not exist in the newspaper department of th< New York Post Office. Who are agents at th< Washington depot 1 Let us know. John S. McKibbin, the Appraiser.?The fol lowing cards appeared in an evening paper yestei day:? A CARD. The remarks of some of the public journals on an ex aminatien of my self,touching my late proceedings in bank ruptcy ,do me great injustice. Iam prepared for any in vestigation that can be instituted and shrink from no scru tiny, and 1 will put to shame those who to gratify person al malevolence hava bought up claims against me, tha they, by exparte statements, may prejudice me in the esti mation of the members of the United States Senate, befon whom my nomination for the ottice of appraiser it nov pending. In this I trust they will be mistaken, and that after have conclusively shown the falsity of the insinuation with which my persecutors have attempted to poison th public mind, tnc United States Senate will exercise it prerogative in my case as if bo such slanders had ever ei isted. My papers filed in the court shew a full and con plete statement of all my affairs, and I received my di charge in good faith in the full belief that all the procee ings were strictly regular, as will appear by relerence t I the annexed note of my counsel. 1 JOHN S. McKIBBlN. Nxw York, Feb. 23, 1844. Dkar Sir?In reply to your note of this morning, I ha > ten to reply that so far as the imputations in the Herald n fleet upon the good faith of your proceedings in ban! ruptcy, they are utterly false and slanderous. A mistake actually occurred, but it was one of those i , which neither you nor I, as your attorney, had any agei cy?nor had I any knowledge of the clerical error at th ^ bankrupt office until within a few days, and since the r j cent proceedings were instituted against you. I obtained your certificate in the usual course of m 1 business ns vnur attnrnev. and it now anncars that th t final report of the assignee was not filed, notwithstandin , all else appears correct, and even the clerk's repert of r ' gularity of proceedings is regularly filed. This omissic - is chargable not even to me as your attorney; and not but the most malevolent or ignorant can suppose that yc could have had the least possible agency in the irreguiai - tylreferred to. Yours, fcc. . P. CLARK. To Mr. Jso. 8. McKiaans. 1 We have no feeling and no hostility about th 1 matter at all. The report was given for what was worth,Hike any other public proceedings hi fore the courts. If Mr. McKibbin can satisfy h 1 creditors and the U. 3. Senate, we have nothin t to say to^the contrary. : Annexation of Canada to the United States.t Several of the Montreal papers are "horrib - afeard " that Canada will be annexed to the Unite 1 States, and become a province of retailers of ta| 1 and notions to New York. Nothing more likely! in nrSr?na nf lim* Hut the Canadians mav 1 f easy for thin year. Before it is to take place, * - will give them six weeks' notice. A Paip. op Millionaires.?The U. S. Suprerr Court have decided the famous case of Gener 11 Gaines and his wife in their favor. This mak< 1 General Gaines worth about #15,000,000 in pr perty in New Orleans?the richest man in th " country. j The vast merits and popularity of the Gener and his pretty wife, will now be discovered by tl world at large. The Spoils?An unequal division.?Mr. Noye once of the firm of Graham, Noyes, and Martii who are stated by Mr. Leavitt to have got #44,0< from the North American Trust Co., for their leg services, comes out and states, that he had only third of #8000, or of #10,000. What became the balance! Do tell, Mr. Graham. Mr. Editor?Would it not be a good idea : suggest to the owners of British mail steame , which arrive at Boston, that after landing the ' passengers there, thpy at once proceed to this ci j with their letters, tec., and thereby save the ttsele formality and loss of time in passing their ma through the Boston Post Office. Do you not thir eight hours is rather too much time to merely par ofl the lettera in hulk, as was the case from tl I'tvt steamer, and compel the merchants and oths tu wait two t>r three hours longsr limit tfwy ulto* },*Y# dm,# fur umiH to t>? kwk*4 1 d The Mtstkmxs o? tii* Stao*.?All very well to c far as it went, was Mr. Barry's eloquent lecture.? 1a But he lingered only on the threehold of that inr tereating scene which we wished and expected to >- see laid open to all eyes. We still want the "mysis tertee of the stage" unveiled. We wish, us all h genuine friends of the Drama must wish, a full, faithful, and practical exhibition of those defects, >il errors and vices in its management, in its domestic Ij. economy, in its general conduct, which have imi. peded its progress, marred its usefulness, and ob. n soured its excellence and brilliancy. Now Mr. i Barry has been behind the scenes. He is familiar with all the hidden mysteries of the stage, lie has himself officiated as stage manager for years.? I Ilis experience, his intelligence, his candor, hiH I ability to communicate information, all render him well qualified for discharging this task with efficiency and success. The truth is, the abstract question respecting the e morality of the drama is very easily disposed of, n and is of very little practical interest. Experience y has given the lie to the ranting ubuse fulminated n against the drama. The writings of Shakspeare, 0 alone, have done more to elevate, instruct and d purify the Anglo-Saxon mind, than the works of ail n the proteased moralists and sages of our age. But it has been against what are called the abuses of ? the stage that the artillery of the clergy?the soi? called guardians of the public morals?has bepn 5- directed most especially. Let us. then, have a fair ,i and candid exposition of these abuses from those who have really possessed the means of becoming acquainted with them. Instead of the distorted, )f grossly exaggerated picture of those abuses, which the opponents of the stage have presented, let us have a just and truthful representation of them ; then we will be enabled most effectually to silence d the revilers of the dramatic profession: and, at the a same tune, to apply such remedial and preventive means, as experienced judgment, and a friendly V feeling may suggest and approve. 1 Then, again, a thorough and searching expoti of i the errors and misconduct of theatrical managers would be highly serviceable to the interests of the ' stage. We do believe that to the errors, the stu" pidity, the avarice, the want of tact of managers, J the present prostrated state of the drama is mainly ?. to be attributed. The drama, like truth herself, bus often been sorely wounded in the house of her friends. Her character, her influence, her children, " her destinies have too often been in the hands of ;. men unworthy of the trust. Now, on this point, jj Mr. Barry could cast much interesting and instructive light. He could tell ns much about the may nagement of the Park Theatre, which would t- amuse and instruct us, and serve the cause of the drama. What has been the causes of its want of . prosperity 1 What have been the prominent errors I in the management 1 What about the green-room 1 8 Let us have some inkling of these things. Mrn Barry will thus perceive that we have chalked out r abundance of work tor him ; but lie is able to perform it all. He has mude a good beginning?let him not leave the chicfest part of the work un8 touched. s City Intelligence, Police?Fiun.w?Shot rt Officer ?On Thursday y evening, about 12 o'clock, as officer Baker of the lower t police, was returning from the Stli ward, whither he had been with ollicer Walsh, he heard the screams of a female II at the corner of Grand and Mercer streets, when he rush,f ed across and found a man assaulting a female and two or three others standing by. He inquired the cause, when '? he was told it was none of liis business. He told the man y that he was a Police officer, when ona of the persons standing by drew off and struck liim on the mouth, and e then started to run. Apprehending an attack|from others of the party he drew a revolving pistol and discharged one of the barrels at the man that he supposed hod struck i- him. The hall entered his left breast and passed round j the ribs and lodged in his right side. On the discharge ol one of the pistols, some one threw a paving stone, which struck Baker on the left leg, and he then fired another barrel at random, which frightened the party away. The wounded man ran into the Broadway House, where he a was recognized ai John Lughtbody, ink maker, ol Ko?e o street. Officer Baker immediately repaired to the third i. district watch house, and obtaining some assistance, then returned to the scene of the affray to find the persons who 3 had assaulted him, hut was unsuccessful. He then ret ported himself at the watch house, where he remained over night, and in the morning made affidavits before Jus,t tiee Gilbert against those concerned, in order to secure h their arrest. Lightbody is dangerously wounded, although he may recover. We understand that a full investigation will be made before the Mayor this morning, at 10 o'clock Highway man named Hugh Luckcy, who 0 had entered a porter house on the north east corner ol ' Anthony and Centre street*, where he exhibited some money, and leaving he was followed by four mon named ' Abraham Kyerson, Thomas Lowere. and William Spy. 1 good, who accosted him and asked if he hod not lost any money, when he drew out his purse, which one of the rOglltfn ftlluRhcil onJ ran nWtty.

Ore-SCARLKT AND TYPHUS FEVER, ANI) SMALL f< POX.?At the present time these highly infectious mala- a dies are making sad ravages in this community. They a all begin with laugour, lassitude, confusion of ideas, pain tl in the back, and the calves of the legs ; chills aud shiver <1 ings, alternated by fits of heat; the thirst is conderable, o the sk n dry, and the patient is much troubled with nau- o sea, anxiety, and vomiting. No danger need be apprehended from fkese distressing symntoms, provided the C Urandreth Pills be freely given. The infectious humor is by these Pills at once removed from the body, and by faking only such doses as will purge the bowels freely for a lew days, the patient will be restored to better health * than he had before the attack. Iu general, 4 or b pills 1 t every night will be sufficient, but if these do not purge ' freely, more may. with advantage, be given. The cure will be assisted by the patient putting his I feet and legs in warm water, and when it is convenient the warm bath will be highly serviceable. Tea made of catnip, balm, or camomile, will be ulso of much uae;the t food may be raw oysters, oyster soup, or good meat soup, and two or three oranges may be sucked during the day; ( the great object however is to purify the blood to abstract j from it those humors which are the cause of disease? ( this the Brandreth Pills will do, and they will do it effectually, and without leaving the body debilitated : every , dose will strengbten the body, not weuKen it. Dr. Franklin says : "All these acute fevera ever require some , evacuation to bdng litem to a perfect crisis and solution, ( and that even by stools, which must be promoted by art, t when nature does not do the buslniss herself.

The receipts foi he month of February and March, 1843, were only $0,998 Estimated receipts for the same period this year, $10,000. The Boston money market remains nearly in the sam< date as reported in our last. There is still considirabb ixcitement in the financiul circles of that section, in reinion to the election of directors for the Western Railroad rhe contest appears to be between the high fare party and 'he low fare party. The high fare party carried the elec don of their officers. Most of the capitalists owning ihares in this road, voted for those candidates advocating high prices, on the ground that that policy would soonei produce a dividend. They will find that such a course will create just a contrary result. It has been proved bj experience that low fares increase receipts. The ret arm made by all the railroad companies in Great Britain who have reduced the price of passage, show a great in crease of receints. while those that adhered to liiirli rates have shown as great a falling off. The Harlem Railroad it the heat evidence of tho truth of this assertion. The receipts per week on that road, at sixpence per head, are double what they were at ashilling. This is invariably the casa on all important routes. The same principle will hold good in many other things besides railroads and iteamboat*. We find that our Liverpool paeket owners make the profit of passengers larger atone hundred dol lars per head, than they used to at one hundred and fifty. Our (magnificent steamboats on the Hudson reap more profit at $1 50 per head, than when the fare was $3. Our omnibuses in Broadway make more meney at sixpence per head than at a shilling. All these things practirallv demonstrate the principle, that low prices produce heavier receipts. The stockholders in the Western Railroad will before the end oi the year, find that the result oftheir po. licy will be just as we anticipate. Five dollars from Boston to Albany makes two and a half cents per mile, which is a fair price, and will produce large receipts. F.ight |dollars being [four cents per mile, is so exhorbitant a charge, that passengers going west en excursions of pleasure will go by the way of New York, and thereby lessen the receipts of the rond. The roads running through this State found it advisable last spring to reduce the price of passage ; about the same time the Massachusetts Western Road fixed tho price of passage from Boston to Albany at four dollars, which remained in force until the winter set in, when it was raised to five dollars, the present rate. The receipts tin der these scales show a great increase,'and the stock commanded a good price in the market. A majority of the present board of directors are in favor of plaoing the price at eight dollars through. Should they adopt that rate, it will benefit tho travel through this city. An individual can leave Boston in the summer, when the North River is navigable, and reach Albany, via New York, for 50, being $1 60 less than the charge over the railroad route, through Massachusetts, besides the privilege of a view of the glorious Hudson. The movements of trade and commerce, at present, exhibit several very alarming features. The rapid advance ment of property is indicative of very unfavorable resuits. A gradual and regular progress of commercial af. fairs, and a permanent incrcaae in all tha department* ot trade, are tho beat evidence* of the exletence of tho elements of a sound and healthy state of thingi.

The quotations ir Manufacturing stocks keep pretty well advanced. We learn that the Committee ol Ways and Means in the louse of Representatives, will soon report one of the lost judicieus, equal, and wisely discriminating tariff ills that ever was ofl'ered to any legislative body. The ct places the average duty between twenty-five and titty per cent, with discriminations under that per cent, ringing it nearer a revenue standard than any ever be. >re possessed. It is just iu all its features, and will rithout doubt, pass through the House rapidly and withut much alteration. The only fear the friends of the ill can have, is in the course likely to be pursued by the ienate, a majority of which is whig, who generally will ipimse it on political grounds. It Is possible they may lestroy the bill rather than risk their popularity with he political party they represent The planting, nanutacturing, and all other interests are sutllieutly protected in this new bill, and it cannot be oa the ;round that they are not sutliciently cared for, that it hould be rejected. Party prejudice will have Its usual nfluence in deh-ating this bill, because it emanates from a lemocratic committee and a democratic house.
