NEW YORK HERALD. IVcw York, Friday, March K, 1844. lie vlval of Good Times?The Dangers to be Avoided. It is very evident, from every symptom around us and in all parts of the country, that we will have a revival of good times?as the phrase goes?and a great increase of the spirit of activity in business in till branches during the present year, and perhaps the next Every thing seems to predict a rise ot prices, and an nidation of the spirit o( speculation. The symptoms in 1844 resemble those in 1836, and particularly those which ushered in the short revival in 1838. Stocks are rising?cotton is risingreal estete is rising?rents are using?every thing is rising, expert morals, honesty, integrity, and roprietv, and they appear to be in rather a declining condition. In tin" condition ot things?with such a pleasing prospect before us for the year, there are certain evils to be avoided by all persons in business, of which it isjast and proper to warn them in time.? It will be recollected that in 1838, at the commencement ot the brief revival of business in that year, a vast number of new bubbles were started, pretending or affecting to increase and strengthen the cur(Vn^V of that nprinH und fur t h*? mirniw** t\f ffii ini? a new impetus to trade and industry. The new general banking luw of tins State had just gone into operation. Similar laws hnd been enacted in other States, and a general attempt was made by the speculators and by active monied men, to create a vast revival out of mere credits and by the assistance of institutions without capital or solvency. In that year, it will be recollected, that probably twenty or thirty, if not more, of such institutions, were started within the space of a few weeks in the city of New York and its neighborhood?that they were commenced without any capital or any credit ? that their only means of doing business was to issue well engraved notes, of all denominations, to send them all ovet the. South and West, exchange them for produce in as hasty u manner as possible, and then,when the produce or goods were obtained, the institutions exploded, and left not a trace behind. The losses and injury to the people throughout the country, and the discredit to the well managed banking and other institutions of that period, are well recollected by every person now in business. Ought not a recollection of those important facts in the history of trade and ommerce, have sortie eHect|upon the minds of business men at this period, and during the commencement of the present revival? Are there not symptoms of a similar attempt being made throughout the country by a similar set of men, speculators and financiers of a small calibre, which must, if permitted, end as disastrously for the country as did the former attempts? For instance, we have recently seen attempts made to resuscitate old, broken, insolvent, damaged banks in other States?to create agencies for tlient here in New York, and to circulate their shin-plaster money in various parts of the country by various means of exchanges for real values. We perceive that even in Ohio attempts are just now made to revive some ol the broken institutions of this city, the authors of these movements supposing that a species of currency with the character of New York Hpon it, will he sure to pass readily. It may also be noticed here, that during the last few weeks a very shrewd and specious attempt has been made to take hold of a small concern in New Jersey, called the Plainh..i,i .tc ni?r a.;. from whence to issue an immense quantity of its paper among all classes, but particularly the poor, hard working population. We are happy to observe, however, that there are inen of intelligence and probity in the New Jersey Legislature, and that this attempt to make use of the Plainfield Hank for purpuses beyond the intention o( the Legislature, will he completely frustrated in a short time. The principal branch of the Legislators has passed a resolution directing the Governor to appoint a commission for the examination of that institution, and no person who looks at the facts connected with its history, can have any hesitation in predicting what the action of the Legislature will be on that report. This Plainfield Rank all'air, is, indeed, probably one of the most impudent attempts ever made during all the revivul of business in previous periods of prosperity, or that will likely be made during the present. Plainfield, in which it proposes to be located, has not even an existence on the maps of New Jersey, and has neither habitation nor a name in the census of the United States for 1S10. We have no doubt that the charter of the institution was obtained in consequence of representations calculated entirely to mislead. For what use has a place with a few farm houses, too obscure and insignificant to have a place in the census of the State?without existence on the maps of New Jersey?what use has such a place for a bank with a capital of #100,000, and #100.000 circulation? None whatever. It is obviously one of those institutions put into the market by those who get a charter through for the purpose of being taken up by simulators out ot that i?tate, and used for shaving and fleecing the community in other parts of the country. The circulation of the hank has, we understand, been chiefly in this city and throughout the New England States, and but for the ready action of the Legislature of New Jersey, we verily believe, that it would have out several hundreds of thousands of dollars in a few weeks, with little or no sjiecie to form a basis of redemption. This is one of those institutions managed on the modern principles of financiering, which we would | earnestly advise all those engaged in business to avoid. It belongs to a class that will spnng up in every part of the country?that will spread their ramifications to every extent imagitable?and that will endeavor to force their paper on the people, lor the purpose of ending, as the Jacksonville Hank of Florida did once, in the same hand., and under the same agency which now control and manage the 1'lainfield Bank. So it will appear, that in periods of prosperity there are evils to he avoided and guarded against by the intelligence and wisdom of the people?evils that leail to great losses and great dangers, and which can be easily avoided by the simple recollection of past events, and by trusting to those infallible sources of correct information?the Imnest and independent portions of the newspaper press. No confidence can be placed, as we need hardly say. in newspapers owned by bankers?controlled by bunkers?and in the hands ot mere shaving, shin-pl tster financiers. Their purpose is to deceive, not to enlighten?to lead the people astray, not to direct them in the safe path. And perlui|>s there is no time, in which it is more necessary to consult and profit by the advice and warning ol reliable sources of information, and to manifest good sense and discretion in the management of affairs, than on the eve or during the progress of a period of great prosperity and great revival in business. Movements or Young America.?Last evening the Native Americans of the Seventh Ward made their charter nominations. They have selected a capital ticket, and the greatest enthusiasm pervades their ranks. "Young America" in the Seventh Ward will show herself next month. Politics in Pennsylvania ?General Joseph Markle has been nominated by the whig.' as their . ndidate for Governor at the next election. No >iemo> ratic condidate yet settled upon. Navigation or the Hcjison.?The river is open far an Peekskil], and the Northern mail will hereafter b _ sent off by the steamboats. For the present the mail is to close at six o'clock in the morning. Gr rious ArfAia.?There is to be a curious lecture delivered to-night by Professor Bronaon ut tt," I i'',crnue|t\ It- singularity will be evptalleu Uv U? simplicity . ee advertisement Durr Grkkn and thk Frk* Trad* Rippus.?A great deal of error is afloat relative to the recent free trade movement in this city, with which the name of Duff Green has been associated. The " Boston Atlas" says, that the British Corn Law [ League has furnished the funds for the establishment of a paper in New York. This is an error entirely. The "Washington Globe" says, that notwithstanding the withdrawal of Duff Green from the free trade paper, still he is there tub rota. This is another verv serious and sickly blunder. Let us give the facts. The free trade movement in this city, and the establishment of a journal to organise a new party on that theory, was projected in Loudon last summer, by Mr. Henry Wyckoff, formerly known as the business-man of Funny Elssler, and General Duff Green, both being then in London. Mr. Wyckoff brought all the capital into the concern, and Dull u vast quantity of editorial talent, experience, wisdom, and genius. A contract was made between these two persons, by which Duff was to receive 04000 |>er annum for his services, and u share of the press or the party, when it be , cume valuable. T. lie 22d of r ebruary, 1844, was fixed upon to begin the undertaking in New Vork, that being the birthday of Washington, and theretore a very auspicious day to commence the work of restoring the principles of Washington. A large amount of some western State stocks?probably Illinois, was placed in the hands of Duff, who was authorised to raise money thereon, to prepare for the undertaking. Dull accordingly arrived here sometime in December or January, big with the " fate of Cato and of Rome." He looked around the world? went to Washington to see Captain Tyler, and altogether got so excited with things, that he could not hold out till the 22d of February. So forth he started right ofl'in January?and astonished the world as it it were a volcano?ut an enormous expense, as Darnum announced Tom Thumb?he began the new paper and new party. By and by, Mr. Wyckoff comes out to begin the new paper, bringing with him two or thtee London editors or writers?one as general editor, another as literary ?und a third to do up the agricultural paragraphs. To his astonishment he found the paper had begun ?the grand moral regeneration had commenced, and already nearly #3000 ex|>ended in the first month of its existence, and not #300 received. In a few days this discovery produced an (rneutt, and Dufi Green was sunintarrily dismissed for mismanagement?incompetency?and want of talent, and Mr. Wyekofl placed in the vacant chair, a Mr. John Ilyan, fresh from London, to preside over the whole concern. On this, Duff commences an action at law for breach of contract and for damages, and the whole affair ab ot'o wque main will be placed before the public in process of time. These are the simple facts of this philosophic and funny enterprise to create a great free trade movement in this country?to remodel the morality of the present age?to set politics right, and to manage the pirouettes of politicians on the great principles of ' galvanism or neurology. The projector hud long studied the art and science of pirouettes, as connected with the "poetry of motion," and we have no doubt he will apply his knowledge with equal skill and tact to the poetry of politics. This is a great and learned age of the world, but we must wait tilj it he fully developed. Fot'EtEBisM ?The Fourier organ, the Tribune, came out yesterday with rather a long article, in which we find more of their usual choice epithets ?"villain," "rascal," "scoundrel"?applied to those who differ from them in their theories of scetety, or presume to think otherwise. They complain now that their opponents assail Fourierism by detracting its advoeutps. Now, we believe this is not so. We have not seen a single word uttered d -rogatory to the private character of any of these unnfltlpH Thpv htiVP Iwpri l#?ft enf Ir#?lv iinf mid any remarks made of them personally have been rather complimentary. Their doctrines and the consequences oi their doctrines?their principles and their necessary tendencies?these have been the only subjects of examination and exposure. Their creed was shown to be quite identical with that of Owen and others of that stamp. The Tribune denies this. Well, here is their own creed: OUR CUED. 1. We believe in one God, whose fundamental attribute* are omnipotence, omniscience, and universal love. 2. We believe that Hod created man in his own image, and endowed him wiih finite powers of body, of mind and atrection analogous to the divine attributes of power, and love. 3. We believe that the laws of harmony which govern the creation, are adapted to the following attributes of the Creator, and that they are permanently revealed to man in the natural phenomena of the Universe : ? Jl Simple Scale of the Ureteral -Ittrihulei of the Deity. Pivotal Attribute.?The entire Government of the Universe in all its movements and harmonies. 1 Universality el Providence a Economy of causative jiower in effecting harmonious combinations 3. Distributive justice or universal equity. 4. The entire distribution of attractive and repulsive faculties (or power) to the various orders of beings in the universe. a. Mathematical consistency in directing the spiritual and the material movements of the universe : constituting what are commonly called the laws of necessity. t>. Tne necessary diffraction of primitive impulsions (passions and all other uctire agents and powers) thwarted in development: generating what is commonly called Natural Responsibility. 7. Infinity in all his attributes. Pivotai. Attribute?Unity of purpose and design, or universal harmony in creation,dissolution and transformation 4. We believe that the universe displays the attributes of the Deity, and that none of these attributes can ever be annihilated 5. We believe that God and the Universe ever do, ever did, and ever will co-exist in the relation of absolute cause and effect in all eternity. ti. We believe that graduated association is the universal law of harmony, and that individualization is the general cause of discord (and evil ) 7 We believe, that Attraction and Repulsion are the universal agents ol the Deity In governing th? mental, the moral, and the material spheres of harmony. H. We believe that every thing in the universe is subject tothclawof progressive alteration, in accordance with the eternal action of Daity. 9 We believe that the souls of human beings are immortal, and subject to perpetual change in their associations with matter and with mind. 10 We believe therefore in a future state of conscious existence, everlastingly subject to the reward of pleasure fur acting in accordance with the universal laws of har mony, and eternaliy subject to the punishment of pain as a necessary reaction from the violation of these laws, or the laws ot God and immutable justice. 11. We believe in the necessary existence of partial evil to effect universal good, and that, in every sphere of existence, temporary discord is one of the laws of jiermalient harmony. IJ We believe thai excessive discord necessarily eccelcrates i le or ward piogress to harmony, (soricty, lor instance, no a oppressed w ith accumulated and intense evil, is stimulated to seek lor reform, more than a* any former period,) and that, the faster we progress collectively in discovering the practical laws of justice, the more we are rewarded wiih happiness, and strengthened against the dangers of rnlRpsing into iniquity and suffering. 13. We helievu that the whole human race will he finally enlightened by the spirit ot truth and received into thr kingdom oi universal love. I t. We believe that the innate essential desires of bu man nature are exactly in pro|>ortion to the real destiny of humanity ; and therefore we believe that the universal desire of mankind to enjoy happiness here on this eartl as well as hereafter, will tie fully satisfied,by means whict (Jotl in lii? providence reveals to man as he is prepared tc receive them. We believe that all the articles of this Creed are in ac cordance w ith scripture, and capable of demonstration hj the light of human reason and science. We wish it to be particularly understood, that all advocate* of association subscribe to those articles of Isltf only, which they fully understand j anil not only do they subscribe conditionally, to the general creed, but every member is free in otrentrieity to question, at all times,tht scientific validity of each individual article of faith, mntl obtain ail such modifications as the superior light ol progressive science may demonstrate to lie legitimate The universal creed is a progressive standard, and not -in oppressive incubus. It is published to show what ?i believe, and not to assume the authority of infallibility One of the principal characteristics, however of a harmo moils organization is, that It progresses in developement through numerous degrees of modification without losing its absolute identity, as a human being progresses from infancyto manhood without losing its individual conscious nasi. And so the universal creed, we hope will progress from truth to truth, until it comprehend* the light ol universal love ALBF.KT BRISBANE. Out of their own month let the Fourierites now he judged. Here is the accredited statement ol their faith from the hand of one of their apostles We particularly direct attention to the ninth nrti cle, which expressed their belief respecting the na ture of the soul. The whole tenor of the creed f directly at variance with scriptural revelation, ui will be perceived from the rnoat cursory examina lion. A '"iRivri r.WN\ff:vr i? to lie given at Stew art's hotel, Newark, this evening nnd to-morrow evening, by the company from the Museum -L_ ??? ? Erie Rau.road.?We see a great deal of effort made in various papers to produce a feeling in favor of the construction of the Erie Railroad, and to get the consent of the people of this city to a loan ol three milliona Iroin the Corporation, and the like sum by private subscription. Really we think it requires the greatest assurance in the world for any set of men, after what we have seen of the management of tli utassociation, to come forward before the public and make a second time such a request. No doubt ihe construction of the road, at an immense cost, might he of some benefit to the city of New York, and to those counties through which it passes to Lake Erie. But, we contend, on the broad ground of economy and pubblic utility, that with the canal and the railroad by the way of the Hudson river, from Albany to Buffalo, on the one hand, and with the Pennsylvania canal and railroad on the other, and within a short distance of eacli other, the construction of a railroad over the mountains that separate Pennsylvania from New York, is a most ridiculous, unsafe,expensive, and hazardous project, and entirely unnecessary in any point of view. What is the use of constructing a railroad in the middle of those already established media of communication 1 We are to recollect, too, that hereafter the communication to Buffalo, in the winter season, will be us easy us at any other season of the year, in consequence of the river being kept open by the new improvements in cutting the ice. We repeat it, we see no reason whatever for saddling the people of thiscitv with an enormous ex penditure, merely for the purpose of getting up a clique of officers, superintendents, presidents, cashiers and others, who are thus to be saved from the necessity of getting a living by some other honest mode. Sentence Dav.?Administration of Justice.? We understand that this day is set down for sentence day in the Court of Sessions. Wc will see now whether John Jones, the button-maker, and Joe Gulick, the militia man, both convicted in that court, will be brought up to receive the sentence of punishment due to their crimes, or whether some new species of proceeding may not take place to postpone it. If either of these characters belonged to the lower grade of society?we mean as respect their purses, as otherwise they are quite low enough in the social scale?if they had stolen hall a pound of pork to stay the pangs of famine, or a piece of cloth to make into a pair of breeches, we have no doubt they would each have been promptly sentenced to six months confinement in the penitentiary. But the poor loafers have no lawyers to interpose obstacles to the course of justice. Let us see how many additions we are to have to-day to the list of forfeited recognizances. Tiie First Burst.?We understand that yesterday, one of the cotton speculators engaged in the recent movement to keep up the price of cotton, exploded. No person was killed, however, but some of the Georgia Banks have been severely injured, and so they deserve to be, if they will meddle with cotton. The sooner they burst and explode, and are scattered to the four winds of heaven, the better. This is only the commencement of the game lor 18-14. Before midsummer comes, we will have plenty of explosions. I'almo's Complimentary Benefit.?If ever enterprise deserved unqualified encouragement, the Italian opera, and consequently Mr. Palnto?to whom alone the lovers of good music are indebted for this highly refined pleasure?are particularly entitled to universal patronage. At the first glance we do not see any thing in the whole undertaking but a fortunate speculation, whose only reward ought to consist in its pecuniary success; but the observer who never ocpuvutes the future from the present, will not lose right of the mcrnf effect which the introduction of a permanent musical establishment will and must have upon manners in geneial and the cultivation ol music in particular. The time is not far distant when this divine art will not be a mere matter of fashion, but a necessity, identified with our system of education, and not dependent upon the efforts of a single individual. It cannot be denied thnt the influence of music is more general than that of poetry and painting, although fhpv pninv a Ineher position in the list of fine nrts than music. Both poetry and painting require un exulted state of civilization to be duly appreciated. They address themselves to the exception, and not to the general rule ; wheie, on the contrary, music, is understood, or at least liked, by everybody, and assists in producing that civilization These considerations actuated the endeavors of the committee, into whose hands the whole management was given, nnd who deserve much praise for the manner in which all the arrangements were made. The selection consisted of three parts, the two latter of which proved extremely acceptable to the numerously congregated fashion and beauty. This can by no means be said of the first part, which was coldly given and coldly received. The overture played by the orchestra, which has been looked for with so much interest was a kind of ;?tf/?ourri,not over judiciously arranged, and which presented only one interesting feature, llapetti's solo, although if was not of a very transcendent nature. It was followed by a new cantata, "II Pripioniero di stata," the wqrk of a young composer?Who is a citizen of America, if we are not mistaken. It is very gratifying to witness the efforts made by the adopted sons of Columbia ; and the talented maestro in spt can rest assured that very great composers have made a worse beginning than he. It evinces much taste in the accompaniments?has a simple and correct instrumentation, and is altogether different from ttie usual style of Italian airs. The melodies are not always clear, and the closing andante lacks invention. It would have produced much more effect if it had been sung in costume?the recitatives being too long lor a concert piece Valtellina gave the portamento passages with much expression, but does not possess sufficient volubility and height of voice to do justice to the finale of the cantata.? Majocchi and Perozzi introduced the beautiful duet from Gemma, which Castellan sang in her concerts at Washington Hall. This piece suits the voice of the donna, and the part of Antonina does not, although they require nearly the same register. Majocchi appeared a little nervous iri the beginning, but recovered herself in the allegro, which she per formed in her usual style, avoiding all1 ornaments and runs. This duett was well received, but not quite ?o well u? a? the Washington, where it was encored. The greatest treat ever offered at this opera house, was the second p irt, consisting of nearly the first act of Kossini's "Barbirre." rte Begins was Figaro, and Borghese Bosina. The former was received with much applause, and succeeded in disguising tlie effects of merciless : time through his truly Italian method; his very praise worthy efforts were duly acknowledged by the audience, who sliowrd much pleasure at the reI appearance of the old favorite. But where find , words to describe Borghese's Bosina 1 Her i roguishiiess, archness, and coquetry, surpassed ? the most sanguine expectations, that ceuld huve been previously formed of her as a comic singer. Now she warbled as a nightingale, pouring forth her clear mezz.i voce ; now she throws up her . high not** like rockets, which form beautifully i colored stars; now her acting eclipses her singing ; now the singer makes u? lorgnt the actress. It whs - one of the greatest triumphs which had been ever ' achieved in this city, and every body will wish to I sec her many and many times in this character. The boiiiiuets, flowers, wreathes, and ronronntt, which fell to the leet of the prima donna were ; numberless, and the applause at her coming before the curtain to satisfy the clamors alter an encore, w?s a perfect thunder storm. Nor was she less brilliant in the second act of Lvria di Ijimmtr; moor, which formed the third part. There was still a fourth part, which must be mentioned, consisting of the speech by Mr. Palmo, the hrneficiairt, the impressario, who had greater *works to overcome than Hercules with his twelve feats, and who returned thanks to his patrons in the following words i? ' L?r>ir? tin f? i rsr*. Vour kindness this night has made mrone of the happiest men on earth.

We are not in the habit of rejoicing over the miatortunes of our fellows ; but we caunot avoid making merry over the fact that Kendall was led by a variety of motives to embark in this ill-fated expedition ; that he encountered a vurii ty of personal adventures seldom paralleled ; that he was finally captured and marched some thousands ol miles under circumstances of atrocious barbarity, to die city of Mexico, and there detained cmong lepers and felons, by the brutal tyranny of Santa Ana and his myrmidons, and above all, that he was finally released. The glorious account he hup given of all these scenes? the racy, fascinating hook w hich they enabled him to write?reconciles us, at least, to all his sufferings and we are sure that he will be no less resigned, for lie says in lus concluding paragraph, that hejwill feel repaid 'or ali lie lias endured, if he thereby has been able to amuse and interest an idle how. His book will beguile many such, and give most excellent and remunerating occupation to thousands more, which will belar from idly spent, in following his marvellous and blood-stained route. We can, of course, in a brief notice, give no sketch ol the contents of the book. The title indicates its general scope ; but for the most rich aud amusing personal incidents, the thrilling sketches uf inhuman cruelty, the racy descriptions of scenery and character, the. valuable information concerning new and unknown countries, and the exhaustless store uf wit and humor in which it abounds, we can only refer our readers to the book itself. They will find it, In all these respects, one of the best and most publications ol the season The style iu graphic ami easy?the spirit of the book uniformly pleasant and humorous, even in describing the most severe and galling suffering. Kendall is a model for a traveller, and the fact that Marry att tried to steal his workheiore it was published, shows that he thought it likely to creute a public sensation.

What oilier motive could they have; for il 1 ley get a verdict, they can get uothing from the defend- 1 at. This they have concided. Why then do they pro- I tied in this cause.' I will tell you gentlemen;the counsel, I i his opening statement toldlyou there was no such cause 1 nor heard ol in Kurope, and 1 will add nor in any other 1 ivili/.ed community. And after you hear the testimony I on will say that an attempt has been made to make his 1 [induct appear dilietent from what it is. It was his misutune to know De Bouillon; he is a French Trostestant, nd although it is well known that the population of that juntry are In general Catholics, there ure a great many I tliern Protestants, who belong to the Kpiscopal Church, ud though they may in some particulars differ from it, ley teach nearly the same doctrine; a doctrine of cold lorality. The plaintitl came to this country several years ?o. A church was Imilt for him. arid he became the pas>r of a (lock in this city. You are then to look at liirn as man not born in this country, but as a man living many lousand miles from his home. f)e Bouillon called upon im and told him that he hud been a Catholic priest, nut ad le it that church and embraced the doctrines of Proistantism The defendant and his people received him, lade liim a vestryman of their church, and clerk to the jcre ary of the vestry. .Mr. Whiting then went on to tate tliu evidence lie intended to adduce, lie sum lie oulil show that the witness, Cothiel.wa* mistaken; that le vestry only met two or three times a year, and that lie ouillon acted as clerk and kept the minutes of the proeedingt.

Counsel then ent on to detail the remainder of the proofs by which he tended to sustain the defence,and which will be found in le report of the evidenctt. B.

Objection siiNtnin eii. W hiiing excepts. Witness put aside.] Defendant rests Mr. Wnirine commenced summing up lor the defence He said the Jury had to pass upon only two questions? first, whether defendant wrote the lihel; and secondly, did he publish it ? He contended that there was no evidence in this case to convict the delcndnnt hut a mere naked paper, which he admitted was libellous But then comes the question, was it the original paper, or a Copy ? In the first place, there i? evidence on the luce of it that it was n copy ; for there were three letters, nil copied one alter anotliet on the same paper, and that was intrinsic evidence of this paper lining a mere ropy. It was incredible that anv individual would sit down and at the same time write three distinct libels on one paper. It was contrary, said Mr. Whiting, to the operation* of the human mind. He then referred to the evidence of plaintilf herself, that the handwriting was that of Do Bouillon, which was conclusive that those letters were written by De Bouillon himself. Mr. Whiting next referred to the letter from Madame De (.a Have to defendant, and commented on It at great length, with a view to show that she must ha\e known the hook was to he published?the infeience from w hich was that she must nave known its contents Lipin the question of publication, you have evidence that it u as written by De Rotnllon, that it came Iromhim, and u a* sent by Verren to Madame Brunell, and afterwards published by him; and concluded by hoping that his per seemed client w ould be sent back to his wife und cLlldren unscathed. ......

Brisbane, then a resident of Charleston. South Carolina, being anxious to take up hi* residence in Cincinntti, sold his slaves, twenty-seven in number, and moved to the latter city. During his staythere he determined that he would redeem and liberate each slave he sold. a short time since he went to Charleston, and at an expense of $6000 more than he received lor the slaves, purchased them back again lie then put them on board of a vessel, and took them to Baltimore. At Baltimore he hired an extra conveyance for Pittsburg, where he arrived on Saturday night last. On Sunday they were put on board of the Valley Forge, and started, with their benefactor, for Cincinnati. It is the intention of Dr. Brisbane to settle them comfortably on land which he has purchased in Hamilton county, Ohio, thus not only giviug them their freedom, but an advantageous start in life. It will be seen now, whether they can take care of themselves. Almost a Rior in St- Louis.?Yesterday our quiet city was disturbed by the gathering of an excited crowd in the neighhothood of the building, belonging to the Medical Department of the University, in consequence of the discovery there of parts of one or more subject! which had recently been dissected. A hundred lube rumors were set afloat through the city, and a large concourse ef people assembled, a few of whom seemed disposed to tear down or injure the edifice. The Mayor, sin nil, Judge Mullanphy and others, attempted to appease the crowd, but the people did not retire until the property inside of the building was destroyed. The greys were ordered out, but their services were not called into requisition. When our paper was put to press, there were several hundred persons still on the ground, not more than fifty of whom seemed inclined to make any disturbance. We understand that the whole ufi'air will undergo judicial investigation to-day ? St. Louie Reporter, Feb. 26. Baptism.?Yesterday afternoon, between one and two o'clock, nine persons, two men and seven women, were baptised in the Delaware, at English's Kerry, Camden. They were converts to the Miller folly.? Phlla Gazette, March A. {)tj- There is much talk at the various haunts of Tammany politicians, as to who .shall be the democratic candidate for Mayor. Young America gave them last tall a tolerable fright, and they arc anxious lest it he followed ui> by a sougd thrashing. The sensible and judicious nave long since decided that Jonathan J. Coddingtori isjust the man for the time. His prompt, business habits and high character for honesty and efficiency,would secure the votes of a large portion of the mercantile community, and of all citizens who are moderate in their political views; to which he would unite',the enthusiastic support of his own jiarty. Others?tor "it is hut a step from the sublime to the ridiculous"? urge Eli Moore. Tut?tut?tut?men, this won't do. Mr. Moore's eloquence, whether exhibited in the bar room or the pulpit, is powerful, yet Young America would give the best oflicenot promised, to have him in the field. Even now, the Rev David Hale is shaking his sides with laughter,at a greater velocity than was ever exhibited by a victim of the ague, even in the worst sections of Illinois, if old Tammany would learn a lesson worth knowing, let. liei study our figures. In 1834 the democratic candidates for Congress were ChurchillC. Canibreleng, Campbell P. White, John McKconand hli Moore. The following is the oflicial returns of the vote they received :? Cambre. Moore. lent;. White. MrKeon 12,562 19,019 18,983 18,871 18,652 19,662 18,552 Moore, less than the others, 467 431 319 In 1836 the Tammany party nominated their old ticket, with the exception of Campbell P. White, in whose place they substituted Gideon Lee. Eli Moore wns also nominated b> the Locofocos in the llowerv. The other candidates on that ticket were Edward Curtis (also 011 the Whig and Native Ametican,) James Monroe, (also on the Native American.) and Stephen Hashrouck. The result was as follows;?

Moore, less than McKeon 604 In 18118 the Tammany candidates were the 6ame as at the two previous elections, except that Isaac L. Varian took the place of Gideon Lee. The result of the vote does not thow that Mr. Moore's services in Congress had materially increased his bottom when running upon the political race course at home:? , Cambrelong. Varian. McKeon. Moore. 19,205 19,067 18,843 18,846 18.843 18,843 Moore less than others, 360 363 414 Eli Moore is just the man to give Young America fits. Distanced in three heats he is sure to win the fourth. Even Joint McKeon gave him three excellent chances to take a near inspection of hia hoofs, but if he is entered against any of the colts of Young America, it will be hard straining for him to see the coif's body before the heat is half run.
