The steam ship Hibernia will leave Boston to- ( morrow for Halifax and Liverpool. Her letter bags will close in this city this afternoon at 34 o'clock. We have a bag at this office. We shall publish an Extra Herald at 24 o'clock this afternoon, in time for this mail, which will contain full commercial reports to the latest hour; also, political, fashionable, and theatrical news from all parts of this continent. Price two cents per copy in or out of wrappers. All this information, given in a single sheet, can uUo be sent by the three packets that leave this port to-morrow noon. Politic a i. Movements?More Baltimore Convbxtions.?We perceive by John Jones, of the Maditonian, and other Tyler sources, that great preparations are making by the Tyler men per ie, I in the States of Pennsylvania and Ohio, to hold ulso a Baltimore Convention in the month of May, and on the same day on which the regular Van Buren Convention is to be held. Tyler meetings have tieen nciu in vuginia, unio, anu i-t-nusyivamn, and delegates partly appointed to meet there on that day, for the purpose of "organising the party," and nominating Captain Tyler for the next Presidency, in opposition to Clay, Van Buren, and any other candidate that may be run. This is a most curious, amusing, original, philosophical, financial per u movement. We hardly know whether our friend John Jones is serious or in joke. Sometimes we take him one way, and sometimes theo:her. He is one of the diyest jokers in the country; sometimes we think we* will laugh outright at him, and sometimes we think we will cry. At all events, there will be a third Convention in Baltimore. Mr. Clay's friends hold their'sin the beginning of May. Mr. Van llurcn's supporters muster on the 27th, and on that day also Mr. Tyler's friends meet to oppose them, and we suppose that there will be half a dozen additional Conventions arranged before the month of May comes. As for the Fourth of July Convention, it seems to be knocked on the head completely. As the Clay Convention and the Van Buren Convention can take care of themselves, and as it is probable that the Tyler party per te muy want a little aid, wc may be disposed to send our reporter there and give them as much assistance as is in our power. They will want some before they get out of the woods, that's certain. What they mean to do, or how they mean to turn, or what direction they mean to take ufter May, wc do not know, nor is it at all likely that they are themselves any better informed on these points. Seriously, however, we cannot help lamenting that Mr. Tyler?of the sincerity of whose motives, and the purity of whose patriotism, we cannot but entertain the profoundest respect?should he surrounded with such iiilluences as peisuaded him to trust his destiny in such a movement. According to all appearances, the whole efiective forces of the few office-holders, who are sincere, and the numerous office-seekers, who only want the spoils, will not be equal to a tithe, even of the abolition party in the free States. They will not raise a single ripple on the surface of the two great movements of the whigs and locofocos. And it is the greatest hallucination possible for any leader and true friend of Mr. Tyler to persuade him that there ' is anv chance of his nomination by any party ; or any chance of his receiving justice by a vote at the polls. The justice which Mr. Tyler will receive is that which will come after his retirement from office, when men will calmly survey his administration, and, undisturbed by the party excitement of the passing hour, will award to him the meed of honest purpose and patriotic endeavor. It he retire quietly trom his administration, after having done the best he could fort'np great interests of the country, he will not go without his reward?a reward immeasurably greater, and more enduring ban that which heated and selfish partizanship bevo,?"ion its shackled, pledged and cringing fawell in a-H^rto Mr. Tyler has done remarkably duocd and d?ce. of points. He has been sadly them, he has acconviuintriguers; but, in spite of rests of his country, both as-'ch lor the rcnl intewelfare and its foreign policy ; its domestic leaves his office he may add greatly to his fore he settling the Oregon question, and other leading to. important questions of the day. The Death or Nicholas Bidihjc.?In anothei part of tWis paper, we insert an article giving a bio graphical sketch of Nicholas Biddle, late Presidenl of the United States Bank. His death came upon us very unexpectedly. We were not prepared foi such a sudden demise. Mr. Biddle's career and character have some feutures which require a good deal of elucidation anc discrimination, in order to be properly understood As a private member of society lie was one of th< most accomplished?most honorable?most nmia ble?and most courteous of men. As a public man, in the Presidency of the United States Bank he conducted it3 affairs, during the first years o its existence, with great skill, integrity, and pru dence. But a3 soon as the miserable, intriguing corrupt politicians of both parties, got hold of him when he wanted a re-charter, he went astray tar ther and farther, until the institution exploded anc strewed, as we have seen, the whole land with iti ruins. The narrative of the deceptions and dupe rtes which huve been practised by these politician) on Mr. Biddle, during his career, would surpasi anything ever written in any language, in the an nals of intrigue and corruption. We do not doub at all that the high and honorable feelings of Mr Biddle revolted against the schemes of these wretches, and that the recollection of these deceptions, practised on his unsuspecting nature, constantly pressing on his wounded spirit, were the main cause of his sudden and premature death. Mr. Biddle h is lelt u very tine family. We trust lliatMorne distinguished literary inan of Philadelphia will give us a correct and full biography of Mr. Biddle, including all the philosophy of his eventful life, which was indeed lull of lesson and moral. Rt'mors of f)?FALCATtovs.?A good deal of astonishment was created yesterday morning by rumors of defalcations committed by some of the officers of the General Government in this city.? We believe these rumors are premature. It is not yet time. After the 4th of March next year, we may hear something. In tlie meantime we would advise all tnose connected with the administratiot of the finances in any shape, to take care of iliom selves, and in the full spirit of the sensible udnge to make hay while the sun shines. It is the las chance. They have distinguished examples belori them, from a thousand dollars to a million and t quarter each, and they must recollect that in thii peculiarly moral age of the world, a man on leavinj office is respected precisely in the ratio of his de falcatioiis. If he robs to the extent merely of i tew thousands, he is set down as a poor devil; bu if he steal liali a million, he is considered a distinguished man. The. robber of a million is ol course placed in the very highest rank of respectability and fashion He takes the lead in the walta in the drawing room?occupies the first seat in the dress circle at the opera?is president of the society for the diffusion of the gospel in foreign parti ?and in all respects is the first man in society ? In a former age all this was doubtful, but its now quite settled. Salic or Ibw.TTixos-?A fine collection of Paintings will be sold by Smith, in the saloon of the (iranite Building, corner of Broadway and Chambers street, this day. Some of them have renlly great merit Drop in and nee them to-day us von pass I Harry's Lecture on nut Staoe.?We perceive that Mr. Harry repeats his lecture on the "Myste| ri-s of the Stage," at the Park Theatre, to-morrow I (Friday) evening. As an appendix to the lecture, ' we really hope that Mr. Harry will enter into some of the mysteries of the management ol the Bowery, { Park, and other theatres with which he has been connected during the last years of his residence in this country. In his lecture, Mr. Barry took the liberty of reproving with a good deal of severity, the action of the press, as tending to the decline of theatricals. He accused the critics of a disregard of justice and manliness in exposing the foiblas of the stage, or in encouraging young genius iu that line of art. Now, if Mr. Barry would tell the whole truth, we believe he could give a picture of the management of certain theatres which would throw a great deul of light on the decline which the legitimate drama has encountered in this city. If we go hack a few years and examine the peculiar management of the Park theatre, we will lind it was the first to resort to the employment of a regular paid puffer, critic, Peter Funk, or whatever you please to call him? this new unnendiiire to a theatre was solely en* gaged to write miserable puffs every evening and hand them round to the different newspaper offices. The Courier Enquirer wns the chief vehicle of this kind of puffery, and thus commenced the illegitimate and ruinous connection between the press and the stage. What was the result1? Step by step, from that moment, the l'ark theatre declined in reputation?in management?in popularity?in everything, until it has been eventually shut up, driven absolutely out of existence by the superior management ot a new man, who has established the Italian Opera atnid the most brilliant success. Mr. Barry might say a great deal to good purpose on this tact. And he might also add a similar example in the history of the like ruinous connection between the Courier Enquirer and the Bowery Theatre. A few years ago the Bowery was popular, well managed and well patronized. But the Park having instituted the new system of puffing in connexion with the press which destroyed all just and useful criticism, the Bowery must do the same; and a certain set of critics, forsooth, were allowed the run of the green-room, and the puffs written by them were published in the Courier 4" Enquirer as in the case of the Park. And what was the result? The Bowery Theatre?once the classic temple, where Forrest commenced his distinguished career, and Malibran entranced thousands, has sunk to the lowest ebb, is turned into a shilling theatre, and is filled with the very lowest remnants of society. These ure examples of the mismanagement of theatres which Mr. Barry might enlarge upon and give a greutmany anecdotes and incidents. But do not let him say that it is the independent press?that the press has done this. It originated with the management themselves?with the actors. They have produced it. And as a forcible illustration of tnts, iook tit lime Mr. rairno, wno, utmost witnout the aid of a single paper in this city?with nothing to assist him, but a little common sense?has established an Italian opera, more fashionable and more popular than ever it was in uny other theatre in this city. And this he has done without the press and in defiance of the press. This is an example of the true and legitimate management. Another beat and another arrival from Europe.?In the absence of packets with later news we yesterday, for the sake of a little pastime, beat every other paper in this city in obtaining .the arrival ot a packet without later news ; and for a little bye-play, till it is time for fresh intelligence ot the State Trials and a rise in cotton, we also beat everybody in half a dozen important arrivals at this port. To make all clear and bright, we will throw, into a table, the names of the vessels that we, and no others, published. akhivals : P. Ship Baltimore, Funck, from Havre, Boyd & Hincken. Br. Ship Blackness, Murray, fm L'pool, Wilson & Brown. Am. Brig Deborah, Jones, from St. Thomaa, to order. Am. Brig Amethyst, Anderson, Mayaguez, Aymar 8c Co spokkn : Am. BrigL Baldwin, Thompson, Savannah .for Provld'ce. American Whale Ship, hound up the Vineyard. These were all reported by our news schooners Flying Eagle and Nonesuch. In the report of the packet ship Baltimore, we not only gave a list of her passengers, but her cargo also. This was important to numerous merchants in this city, in Philadelphia, and in Boston, for many of them have goods on hoard of her. This information, so necessary to know at as an early an hour as possible, we gave twenty-four hours ahead of every other establishment in the city; and had the packet brought later news from Europe, we exclu" pively should have given it to the public. s!iowVJbh this to he understood. Wc intend to r rival of anyn."'10,1 ant9 Hnd others, that on the uror a ship from C*Rj?""h?r a packet trom Europe, t globe at this port, or Bo?L*~" 0,hcr Part of ,h<i 1 the same enterprise and the Orleans, be in advance that we have displayed '?*\V?" l? month. W e mean to do this its sure as there i8*' keel to one of our schooners, or a rag of canvas t, I their masts. Progress op Licentiousness.?Almost ever : newspaper we take up presents us with evidence c the progress of licentiousness throughout the cour - try. It is fortunate, however, that side by side wit this we have evident symptoms of a regeneratin ' spirit, and that the great spirit of the law will h ' invoked to suppress the evil in the course of time. > Just look at the papers foroneday. In Brookly > another and a more terrible case is alluded t< ' worse even than that of the miscreant Judd, wh ' ran away. In Boston, a man has been convicte * of an attempt to run away with an innocent youn ' girl. In Rochester, a fellow, by a flaw in the legi * proceedings, has escaped a prosecution for sedui * tion. In Cincinnati, a moat horrible case bastille the papers for some days, of an attempt on an inn< ' rent girl. In Pittsburgh, one of these seducers ht been righteously sentenced to the penitentiary ft a year. In Oberlin, Ohio, we perceive that a clei ' gyinan has just been convicted of the crime of st dilution and producing abortion, and sent to the p< nitentiary for a year, and mulcted in #200. In tlii city, John Jones, the button maker, awaits the jut sentence of the law. Such is the picture for one day of the state o morals throughout the country, and the state of th law. What is the reason that our Legislature doe not move at all in this business 1 Michigan am Pennsylvania have passed laws against licentious m ss, and Ohio has it ready. Every eflort ough to be made to do something for the eupptession e this greal social evil. Native Candidate for Mayor.?Wc perceiv that the Ilcv. Mr. Hale of the Journal of Corn ' merit, recommends to the natives ns candidate fo ' the next Mayor of this ciiy, the name of Ilugl Maxwell, formerly well known as District Attoi * n.*y, in the famous conspiracy cases, which grev 1 out of the explosion of 1*26. In some respects Mr. Maxwell ntay have n good deal of merit fo 1 this olfice, hut in others we do not think him alto 1 (ether lit. He does not possess that liberal ant I comprehensive mind, which it is necessary for thi Mayor of this city to have. But one of the mos 1 curious recommendations given him by Mr. Hale 1 is his nativity?calling him a native of New York Now we happen to know Irorn the very best au 1 thonty in the world, that Mr. Maxwell is a nativi of Edinburgh, in Scotland. Yet that is nothin| ' against htm, neither is it in his favor. But it maj be a very fatal flaw in his character amongst th< natives. However, that's their business, and no 1 ours. _ , (.'athouc Movements in the United States.We perceive that the Holy Sec intend to nppoin some new Bishops and Arch-Bishops, and among! . ihem Bishop Hughes, of this city, and Bishop J, i Blanc, of New Orleans, arc to be made arcl . bishops. Thi? probably arises (rem their efforts t bring the church property tinder the thumb of hi Holiness, and out of the. hands of the trustees o the Amerirnn plan Biographical *k?Ub of the lit* Nicholas Mddie. The subject of this notice commenced Ins collegiate studies in the University of Pennsylvania in this city. They were completed at Princeton, and when only fifteen years old he received the degree of A. H. in that institution, dividing the first honors of his class, of which he was the youngest member, with a student several years older than himself, lie was early distinguished for his devotion to study, his ready acquisition of knowledge. his talent nnd independent spirit. In 1H04, General Arrnsirong being appointed minister to France, selected Mr Piddle as his secretary, he then being in his nineteenth year. The period of this mission was one of extraordinary importance, and the duties required of him were of a responsible and arduous nature. Three years were spent by him in Europe in travel, and during several months prior to Ins return home he was secretary to Mr. .Monroe, then minister to England. In Philadelphia again, Mr. Piddle was admitted to the bar, and commenced tile practice of the law. At the same time that he pursued his profession, he devoted his tenures hours to literal) engagements, being one of tho inott able and popular contributors to the Port Koho, a magazine in high favor, edited by Joseph Dennie. In 1810 Air. Kiddle was elected to the Legislature In that body he distinguished himself by bis enlightened devotion to the public interests. He was the early advocate of general education, and made a report, accompanied by ubill, for the establishment of a system of public schools throughout the State It was in the Legislature that Mr. Kiddle first exhibited his attachment to the projuct of a National Bank. The charter of the old Dank expired in 1811, and his first essay Unnau 1*1 uni/1 fn hav?? hf*fen in ODD08 tloil to u resolution instructing the Penny lvania delegation in Congress to vote against the re charter. This speech gained him considerable note at the time. He did not, however, then remain in the Legislature, but resumed his legal and literary pursuits, until the year 1814, when lie was elected to the State Senate. This was during a doubtiul period of the war, and Mr. fiiddlc was active in devising measures lor the defence of the State and city, which were adopted by the Senate. On the restoration of ]>eace, Mr. Biddle distinguished himself by the authorship nf a report, adopted by the Le gislature of Pennsylvania, in opposition to the views ol the Hartford Convention. He continued to serve in the 8enate until 1817. He was twice subsequently the Democratic candidate for Congress in the city, but his partywas out-voted. In 1310, by the appointment of Mr. Monroe, he became the Government Director ol the United States Bank, when that institution was in great ditiiculties. Langdon Cheves was then also elected President. Kour years afterwards the latter resigned, and Mr. Biddle was elected in his stead. Krom the period of this election, tweuty years ago, until the bank ceased to exist in its national character, Mr. Biddle continued to preside over it. Whatever difference of opinion may exist as to his motives at any period of his administration of its vast and complicated affairs, it is not to be questioned that he brought to bear upon it the whole powers of his clear cultivated mind, and never wearied in the performance of any duty pertaining to his office. During the struggle of the bank for its existence, Mr Biddle labored with a zeal and ability that few contempo rary statesmen or financiers could have excelled. In this remark we mean not to applaud his prudence or the ex lent of his forecast. Were it our purpose to draft a mere eulogium, and not an honest outline of hia career, we should be compelled to admit that a different line of policy on his part in the outset of the contest between the bank and President Jackson, might have secured a different fate for the institution. The incidents of this contest, and the events subsequent to the expiration of the national chatter, are too familiar to require particular mention. Different opinions?as personal feelings or interests, or political sympathies dictate, must be entertained respecting the share of Mr. Biddle in the government of the bank, and the acts which led to its prostration after the State charter had been granted. Perhaps at this day, when every member of this community is more or less operated upon by influences affecting his judgment in the case, it is not possible to arrive at a view of it, which will satisfy all enquirers. We forbear, also, upon other motives, to touch its merits. We all know that the hank, from hefng rich and powurful is on utter wreck; and it is not our part to say what share cither the living or the dead have had in its downfall. Mr. Biddle was a man whose mind, acquirements, and manners, would have distinguished him in any sphere. He was ambitious?as few men are not who become emi nent. His perseverance never failed him. Intent upon a purpose, he never gave it up while a possibility of achieving remained. He was fertile in expedients, quick in nereentinn. clear in his iudcmentS. Ilia presence won respect, his address confidence. His conversation was rendered engaging by a ready fancy, fluent expression, and draughts upon a richly stored memory. As a member of private society, these qualities rendered him the object of constant attention and regard ?Philad. Gaz. Tiik Plainfield Bank.?We learn from Trentonthat a very considerable feeling exists in the Legis. |ature of New Jersey, in favor of a repeal of the charter of this institution. It seems that a verysearching examination is about to be made relative to the manner in which the bank has been conducted, and there is the greatest probability that before the expiration of the present session at Trenton, that the bill will be repealed. No doubt the Legislature of New Jersey will do their duty in the premises The efforts of these miserable shin-plaster financiers to shave the people out of their hard earnings, and particularly the poor mechanics, by resuscitating broken banks of all kinds, ought to be put down by every honest man in this und all other communities. Man op Honor on a new Plan.?It will be perceived that one of the distinguished gentlemen, who acted as seconds in the recent duel at Wash ington, has been arrested in Baltimore for being a common thief. It is astonishing, after the examples we have seen of the folly of this practice, and the kind of characters who generally resort to it, thai the respectable portion of society tolerate it in the slightest degree. It is perfectly astounding thnt the authorities at Washington do not move at all in this business, but ure as mute and motionless at i if these men had perpetrated some brilliant act foi the benefit of the age and the country.

Everybody could observe at the first j Li, movement, and it was observed, that he labored t0 under a very violent cold ar.d hoarseness, which odi paralyzed all his powers, so that we really thought pl? I it would he impossible to bring the perforinunce to tk< uu end. It was obvious that Vaitellina had hardly strength enough to walk, much less to sing, and an notwithstanding, some cowards, because it is "" cowardly to attack a sick singer, hud the hardi- |'? hood of hissing him in the duett of the third act, '? where his force had given way through the fatigue 1 of his previous exertions. Valtellinu ought to be of proud of this affront, for the audience showed ?e through a frenetic clapping and thumping, perhaps ha never witnessed in any theatre, the high sense they ce entertained of Ins rare merits, and their contempt St at this outrageous conduct. It is quite natural that 1,1 under the existing circumstances justice could not he done to the opera, because the part of Lord Aulitnn is one of die most iiiinortaiit, particularly in the beautiful finule of the second act, which lie leads and supports. tllorgliene proved herself, as always, a singer di Ol primo cartello, and evinced much taste in the ex- At edition of her ornaments and colorature, partly pre- on scribed by the composer and partly introduced by jV' her Much caution is required to employ them in g)1 the right place, nnd, if possible, rather in the ca- m dcnces than in the body of the air, where running passages, as in the duett between her and Lord Ashton, should never be omitted to make room for a succession of shakes. No ornament is of greater Bo efleet than a well executed und graceful modulated ly shake ; but its frequent introduction is too fatiguing to the performer. The first cavatina which is originally written by Donizetti, but nearly every where replaced by a more winning one by Fersiani. is u perfect vocal steeple chase in difficulties, and requires an immense length of breath and a thorough ?u knowledge of all the mysteries of operatic priesthood , M'lle Borghese gave it with the ease ana elegance . of a thorough votary of art, as well as the not less ? difficult air of the third act, which would be the JJf non plus ultra of perfection if the fiorituri were not | a very,very little overcharged.

Police?Wednesday.?Bi<roi.abif.i?The increase of ft b?rglaries in this city lor the past several weeks, ha.i been u perfectly astounding, and they will continue until the a: Mayor in4his judgment, under the power a'.ready tl vested in him, will authorise the re-establish- di ment of the night patrol police to protect the property ol of our citizens irom midnight marauders. While this pa- o! trol was in operation undarthe direction of the police magistrates, more but glars were nrrested and more burgla c ries prevented than at any previous period for years past. The small potatoe, short-sighted motives of some few members of the Common Council, who know as little of police matters as they do of algebra, compelled the magistrates of the lower office to abolish this important ?. arm of police improvement, on the ground that the ex- ' pense was more heavy than it ought to be, in their opinion. The result of this injudicious measure lias been to givefull scope to the energies ofhurglarswho have no more heed of watchmen than if they were lamp posts, and day 0 after day are burglaries registered in the iioficc books and e| rewards offered lor the detection of the rogues without ef- 11 feet. The Mayor has full power and he should give dircc n tions forthwith to re establish the patrol police, ana tuns u cause the property of our citizens to he protected until a the Common Council enact such an ordinance as will meet 1 the public demands. ' Lamm axd Gas.?One of the most important measures < of improvomcnt in city atl'airs connected with the protec- S tion of the lives and property ol our citizens, is the completo lighting of our streets, which at present, in a gene- 8 ral sense, needs much improvement. The oil used in 1 street lnmps, or the manner in which these lights are not \ kppt in order, render them almost useless, and the rules that govern the lamplighters, in their occupation, render ' the present system ol lighting still more ridiculous. If 1 the almanac signifies that the moon should give light, no matter to what an extent darkness may prevail, nor for how many nights it may continue, not a lamp displays its 1 light until the almanac informs these public agents that | tho moon will not appear above the horizon after sun- i down. The miserable apologies for light, as exhibited in i the lamps in which oil is used, should satisfy- the whole community that the sooner they are abolished the better. I Lot gas be Introduced in every street in our city, as soon | as it can be done with a due regard to the public interests, and compel the gas companies, who are now reaping im < ' mensc dividends from their exclusive privileges, to lay - down pipes in every street used as a public thoroughfare The expense, as recently proposed by the Lamp and Gas 1 Committee, of which Alderman Brady is chairman, does 1 ' not exceed that for the use of oil, and therefore should be adopted at once in all streets where gas has been introduced I .

This bill came from the Seventh Ward Bank of this city, and is issued against a law passed a year or two since by the Assembly. The reason given for putting a large amount of theso bills into circulntion, as given by the officers of the banks, is that getting short of the regularl) -signed bills, and having a demand for their paper, they take the responsibility of paying them out. We do not know to I what extent they have carried this, but we have seen a large bundle that must have contained a large amount. * The Comptroller should look into this movement. A law is passed by the Legislature regulating Banks, by placing * . r? 1L. ?f..,.. -r *V.? mc necessary resuicuous uu iiirm iur uie aioij >u? public, and the first moment they And it for their interest, tliey throw aiido all law,'and put into the hand* of the ' public a worthless paper currency, half made up, and without the slightest regard to what is legal or honorable. The bills may eventually be redeemed, but this is only one of the many arts the banks resort to swindle i the community. If an institution like this will be guilty of such a movement, the public have a right to expect them capable of committing a greater, and should be on their guard against all such concerns. The Massachusetts Western Hail Road is at this moment creating a great deal of interest in the minds of cap, italists, both of Boston and this city. The adjustment of an agreement with the Worcester Company, will make a great difference in the value of the stock of the Western I [toad. The election of the high fare party will have a very great influence on the receipts, as well as on the expenditures, as these connected with the road, whose I salaries were reduced, were very active in electioneering for the " Bliss party," with the hope of having their pay increased on that party coming into power. The policy of high fares will be fairly tested on this road the present year.
