NEW YORK HERALD. \ew York, Vrldwjr, March 44. IH44. QtJ- Amo? Head, the Agent for the Herald at Charlea ton, 8. C., has removed hii office to the more central location in that city, at the corner of Broad atreet and Kaat Broadway, nearly opppoaite the Poat Office. Steamship Caledonia. News by litis ship will probably be distributed | over this city early this morning i>he was sixteen days out yesterday noon, and was therefore tuily , due at that time. Her day of Hailing was on the 5th, and not the 4th, as many here supnosed. f till particulars are to be found in an Extra Herai.d. Tub Municipal Election ?We give in our columns this morning a full report of the general meeting held by the American Republicans last night iu Washington Hall, for the purpose of bring, ing officially before the people of the city, their new candidate for Mayor, James Harper, printer and publisher, Cltll"street. There was a very great | outburst of enthusiasm amongst the natives ut their meeting last night; and certainly the appearance which the assembled forces ol the party presented on this occasion, exhibited a very remarkable contrast to that presented on the eve of the electiou last fall. Then they seemed but a petty faction? now, a luuy organized, niuiuiuuinous, compact party, fully prepared for the contest, and to all appearance in a very promising condition to " lick " to their heart's content all opponents, however lusty and full-grown The n.inie of Mr. Harper excited great enthusiasm, and he is certainly abeut the very best man "to run" that the party could huve chosen. The whigs have already placed their candidate, Morris Franklin, before the public at a general meeting in National Hall; and we suppose that in a very few days the locofocos will do the same, lor Mr. Coddington, who has been selected by them ; and thus we shall have the three parties regularly constituted, in the field, at the approaching spring election, for the purpose of giving us municipal ofti' cers. We have watched with a good deal of interest the movements of the three parties, in order to he enabled to give some opinion as to the probable results ot this singular election. But we must confess that great difficulties are in the way, and it is almost impossible to come to any rational conclusion as to the issue of the contest. It is very evident, however, that there has been developed a great spirit in this city in favor ol manicipal reform. This spirit has been awakened chiefly by the efforts of the natives, hut whether they will be able, by the agitation of this subject, to carry a majority in opposition to the old parties, seems to be a matter of great doubt and great difficulty. Both the old patties have also come out for reform; and (hough no confidence can be placed in the premises of the old parties, still many may be led astray by their declarations and positive assurances of giving its needed reform. It will be seen by a notice in our advertising columns to-day, that the democrats meet ut Tammany Hall to-night, for the purpose of making any quantity of promises of reform. We have no doubt they will be able to make . excellent, and quite unexceptionable promisee Their fulfilment is quite another matter. All, however, as to the result or success of one or ther of the parties, is involved in a great deal of from the whiff party, and this' loss will exercise k very material influence in the prospects of Mr. Clay in New York and New England Thusfur the abolition movement iadanfferousonly to the whiff interests at the north, but should they increase in the same ratio as for some time back, danffer will speedily ensue not only to the south, but eventually to the Union itself. Nominations.?The democrats have renominated Alderman Emmans and Assistant Henry, in the Sixth; and Asantant Brown, for Alderman of the Eight, and Albert W Smith for Assistaat. Alderman Brown has rendered himself popular, as an Aiaisiant andj President of the Board during the past year, and will poll a full party vote at least Tti-kr Movxmknts ?Tne. ertorts to catch seventeen delegates for thia city, and the organization of the Tyler party, is very sedulously pursued. But it ja a difficult job. The prospect continues gloomy. Up to last night we understand that there was a prospect of catchin* six, and a small chance of securing the seventh. Thus the sport stood at sundown. _ _ Fatai. Acctdknt? Yesterday morning, James Wolford,seaman, a native of Sweden,aged IK) year*, while loosing the Main-topsail, on hoard ihe bark Serene, bound to Buenos Ayree, when descending, missed his hold and fell to the deck, etrikiug on his head, and killing him instantly. His bodv was conveyed to the dead houss in the Hark mystery; and the only tangible point we can see in the whole matter, is the probability that the great mass of adopted citizens will possess the entire balance of pbwer. By this we mean that the Irish and German adopted citizens will determine the result of the election according as they incline to one or other of the old parties. The " natives" cannot, of course, expect a single vote fr-un this quarter, as one of their chief elements has been op. position to the naturalized citizen. The consequence is, that this large class of citizens, numbering eight, ten, or twelve thousand, will be driven of)'to the old parties. Now it is very well known that during the last year, a great effort has been made by tha whigs to gain over to their side the adopted Irish citizens, whilst at the same time, the democrats have been equally busy on the same tack. On the one side we have Been Thurlow Weed, Horace Greeley, Governor Seward, and all the whig leaders, very busy courting and dressing the Irish repealers, pouring blarney of all sorts into their ears about O'Connell, Ireland, and Repeal, and other topics that have nothing whatever to do with our politics. Possibly secret efforts are at this moment made Under the influence of the Catholic clergy, thai may give Mr. Franklin a majority over Mr. Coddington, by bringing the Irish repealers to his aid. But, on the other hand, the democrats have noi been idle in the same business, and the probability a, that they will divide the adopted citizens as fut as thev possibly can. Thus it will be seen that the result of the election ib a matter of great uncertainty?that the question of muuicipul reform is equally uncertain? nrt thai lht? ninhnhilitv is ihnt in r>i,mu?nii?r>n? ai the third, or " native" party, springing up in its pe tuliar position, that they will give the adopted citizens more power to decide the election than they have ever yet possessed ! We shall see what a few days will bring forth. Abolition Movements.?We perceive from the abolition journals in the interior of this State, tha the efforts of the abolitionists to increase anrt strengthen their party at the ensuing election, have not relaxed a single iota, notwithstanding all the sayings of Thurlow Weed and Horace Greeley to the contrary. We happen to receive the abolition organs of Albany and the interior of the State, and we never saw a more vehement spirit expressed in these journals than that at this moment. They are organizing their forces and mustering nil their strength, in order to operate on the next election. In the question of the annexation of Texas, they gladly see the material for new agitation, und that they will use it to the best advantage we need no assurance, and will undoubtedly create amongst ihe whig party a very great division on that subject. At the recent spring eleeiions in the interior of the State, the abolition vote has increased tremendously over all previous years Last year, we believe, they took about 15,000 votes. If theyincrense as they have done recently, we should not be snr priced if 20,0(10 or .TO.OilO votes would be tnken in thi? Th?itf vntmm. it will ] Two Spirits from thr Vasty Deep ?We have I 1 exceeded die magical power of Owen Glendower, j f I for we have called spirits from the vasty deep, and i tj ! Uiey have answered to our call and come. We re- i ? cently gdve full reports of the famous orations or ^ speeches ot Dr. Bacon on the part of the whigs, o ! and tiansevoort Melville on the part of the demo- ^ ! crats. And tliese orations were so excelleut of ji their kind, and so startling in their views, that the i_ two parties are circulating thein all over the coun-, ]c try, each praising its own orator and pronouncing K his discourse the best they ever read. So, it seems that we have called these two young ci men from the vasty deep of political obscurity, and ^ they came at our call. Dr Bacon's speech is pub- ot liahed in all the whig papers Willi tremendous ac- ^ coiupuniinent of praise; and, really, there was rc something to praise in it, although it contained too much Fourierism and transcendentalism, and p,deification, and all sorts of stuff of that kind. And ( h? then Gansevoort Melville's reply is published in the 1 Albany Argut, the leading democratic organ of t0 this State, with equally tremendous approbation, j *h Of course, we have thus handed down th' se iwo "tc young spirits to the admiration of all generations to come. 11? , ur /{evolution in Literature?The revolution | v from the "cheap and nasty" system of literary pub- a, lication to the elegant and refined, which we iioti- ! n: ced some weeks ago, is going aheau very rapidly. I j>, A number of new houses have started in this busi |o ness, and great efforts will now be made to supply 1 ^ the country with elegant editions of all the classi dt cat irmglisti writers. Kirst in the field is Morn-, i Willis Jt Co., who have been very industrious and I ,n successful thus far. Their beautiful republications | g. of choice and rare poetry and standard works in ? the most elegant walks of literature, are meeting foj most extensive sale, which indeed they fully de- v' serve. James Mowatt Ar Co, of 174 Broadwhy, ol ll( which concern Epes Sargeant is the principal edi- <> tor, is another firm engaged in the same line. They j B are publishing the best works of the modern dramatists and poetry in general. Another establishment is that created recently by Park Benjamin and an B English gentleman named Young, for the publication of elegant literature and the importation of English books. Then again, there is Mr. Hewitt, ro of Broadway, engaged in the issue of a most beau- ' 1 tiful edition of Shakespeare, illustrated by engra- fu vinga and by notes from the accomplished pen ot s" (Julian C. Verplanck. R. Martin & Co., in John f0 street, importers of elegant illustrated works, also deserve mention as materially aiding in this move- |,I ment for the advancement of literature. of These are singular signs and show evidently that ^ the reign of "cheap and nasty" literature is at a w close. It lasted only three or four years, and a good [( denl of money was made by it. But it was ruined cr by excessive competition and mutual depreciation on lite part of those engaged in it. Besides it brought into the field an imin nse number of readers who were soon satiated with novels and trash, w and now desire more solid and profitable nutriment, ci We are very much disposed to believe therefore, that the elegant system of literature will be much more permanent and profitable, as it is much more B honorable, than the "cheap and nasty" system. ar ? ar another richmond- UT. uox ot brooklyn, " emulous of the unenviuble notoriety of his pugilistic brethren, Drs Potts and Wainwright, has en- ?' tered the field, and gives a lecture at the Tabernucle to-night, for the purpose 01 demonstrating his pi skill in handling the orthodox spiritual weapons ot ^ invective, vituperation and bigotry. Alas! alas! n for poor abused, disgraced Christian charity. Itai-ian Opera.?The oppra of Beatrice di Ttnda will be repeated to-night, with the same cast as on "i Wednesday night. We cannot conceal the fact that a great deal of discontent prevails arnongsi lc iliose who patronize the Italian opera by the man- *h agenient of Valtellma, in bringiug forward such an ?< opera in such a manner. The chief objection a|>- ,(l' pears to be Signora Majocchi, who is considered unequal to the role as prima donna, or at least to satisfy those who frequent the opera house. Wr -,i iru?t, however, that after to-night or to-morrow 1,1 night the flurry will be over. ,1 ,t Borghere's Benefit.?The talented and mom u especial favorite of the musical public takes he; benefit on Monday night.

The brokfTe of the n] Board are still solvent, and the improvement w ill sustai those that were heavy losers by the decline. I The improvr ment in stocks to day can be traced to tli ' impiessioti made upon some of the leading brokers by u .ninentml political leader, who hss taken a very decide bind against the annexation of Texas, nnd who assure ill parties that the thing is impossible. This ha* crests a short lull in stock operations, and quotations in consi quence show an advance. The result mar possibly hav a diffeient stl'ect from that anticipated. The grand mov has Ml b?M made yst at Washington, Bo far, rumsr ha been but jr. i he official declaration of the negociations pending on the subject of annexation, may create a greater panic than any experienced yet. Public opinion is as , yet very unsettled on this subject, and it will remain so ! until the question is more matured at huad-qiiarters. i The amount of revenue from impost duties, i*cs, kc. accruing at the Qalveston (Texas) Custom House, for tho | quarter ending Jan. 31, is as follows:? Cash duties $48,719 1# , Permits 173 20 Clanks 309 |3 | Vesrels' fees 1H8 79 Tonnage 3 999 99 $91,399 28 Amount secured in public store 747 87 Total $62,147 13 The report of the Committee of Ways and Means of the City Council of Baltimore recommends that the entire tax- of the present year ba levied at the rate of 67j cents pei hundred dollars. Last year the levy was 78 cents? or 1?J cents more. This is an important reduction of the city's burthens, at the same time that the sum levied will furnish ample provision for meeting pioniptly the public obligations of every kind. In the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, the reve. nue bill passed committee, as was anticipated, when the committee rose and reported the same A motion was then made to proceed to the second reading and consitte- ^ ration of the bill; which was not agreed to, yeas 29, nays 61. The fiiends of the bill voted against taking it up at > tills time, because the object of the mover was to refer it back to the Committee ofWajs and Means, with instruc, tions to incorporate with it a provision for the sale t-f the mam line; unu it is ueemeu auvisaoie to let each proposition stand alone upon its own merits. Receipts op the wkstert rjicroil) ron the weec Endiro March 16. 1841 184.1. i Passengers $ t 394 $3 039 Freight, Sic 3,636 3,481 Total $8 039 $4,610 We have receivsd and shall publish the report of the Chairman of the Committee of Ways and Means, introduc, . ing the new tariff act into the llouse ol Representatives It is well worth a careful perusal; aud the ultras of both parties will find many strong arguments there laid down ' in (avor ol a medium policy as regards this important feature in the administration of the government. The principal object the committee have had in view, is sufficient revenue. The second has been the adoption of a scale of duties, that would, so far as possible, suit all interests, and ensure the permanency of the act, when once more settled. It is considered by a majority ol the committee of Ways and Means, that the constitution intend, ed the revenue to carry on the dift'ereat branches of the government, should be derived exclusively from customs; and their efforts have barn directed to that end in maturing the bill now before Congress. The receipts [ into the United States Treasury, from public lands, are ^ used to defray current expenses, so far ss the amount will t go; but, as far as possible, that resource of the govern' ment js recommended by the committee to be osrefully husbanded, in the event of external troubles cutting off the receipts from customs. This is a safe and ' proper conclusion. The only revenue of government in case of war, is the public lands. The views of the committee in relation to the advantages of permanency in all the movements of Congress touching commercial matters, cannot but be responded to by all classes and by all parties. It ia the adoption of extreme rates of duties that produces the constant ! demand for change. Either extreme would create the > stine dissatisfaction. The taritl'act will not rest oe a safe, solid foundation, until both parties are willing to sacrifice . a little prejudice for the good of the whole. The ultra* of the free trade and the high protective parties, should . seek to discover jsomo middle course, each abating a little of their raucour, for a peaceable settlement of this agitated and fluctuating measure. Every interest in the country ijrinjured by the constant changes going on in this law. It is impossible for any one to make sale calculations far into futurity, when this question is on the tapis, or even when it is not beyond the reach of political tinker* for a stated time. The commercial classes say, " We are not so particular what policy you adopt in your legisla ion on our affairs, but let us know what we may expect from time to time. We do not care what laws you make, provided we can depend upon their stability. All we ask ia to be let'alone." This is the great stumbling blork In forming a tariff of duties, there are three important things ' to he considered, to insure its permanency. The first is i to meet the wants of government as regards revenue. This is the first object of the law. The second is I to equalize the. scale so as to lavor as much as possible all parties, and the third the establishment of a period for it i to remain unalterable. It is one of the most difficult laws to perfect ever brought before a legislative body, in coa sequence of the many iuterests to sustain, and the many i prejudices to encounter. To make it just, it must be 1 equal. The committee that presented the proposed bill, renort that a reduction of duties is necessary, in conse quence of the deficiency in the revenue anting from the present act. They argue that a reduced rate will increate imports, and enlarge the receipts into the Treasury. It it impossible to anticipate any effect upon auy particular system. at there are to many things that influence the ' 'ra le of the country, nd control importationi. The condition of the domestic affairs ol the country generally, > and that of the currency ia particular, exert a wonderlul influence on our foreign trade. Notwithstanding this established fact, for the purpose of revenue, and for the purpose of soothing all these differences that divide the two parties, it is necessary to adopt a tariff on a basis ex* , ten ling equal favors and restrictions to all. Public opiuion has, within a few years, undergone a very great change on the subject oi protection. Mr. Clay is fsr inure liberal than the party he represents, in his views on tliis subject. The annexed extracts, from letters recently written by this distinguished advocate of protection, will give many aa excuse lor gauging their opinions by bis I " it is remarkable," says Mr. Clay, in a letter written to Mr. Meriwether ot CJeoigia, last October, that " my exertions in Congress (?mce 18U?) have been ditecledio - the reduetion und moderation of tariffs!" In speaking of -ne present fault he leinarks :?" I should have preferred - mat tue compromise in all its parts, including ibe home valuation, could have been adhered to " f Again : " 1 nuver was in lavor of what I regard as a high tariff'" e Jn a letter, written about the same time to another Ueurgiun, K. S Bronson, who asked for inlermution, Mr. day replies ' The sum and substance of what I conceive to he thn i- true policy ol'the United States, in lespect to a tariff, may ; ne briefly stated. In conformity with the principle an- 1 i nounced in the compromise act, I think that whatever re> venue is necessary to an economical and honest adminisi (radon of the General Government ought to lie derived } Irom duties imposed on foieign imports.

If two thirds of s- the |>olitical leaders lu the country would come forth as boldly with their present opinions, they would bo found j tojeorrespond much better than now appears possiblr. r- The proposed bill cannot moot the disapprobation of any f? man possessing principles similar to those promulgated in * the above extracts. When Mr. Clay agreed to the com. y promise act of ISJl, and carried It through both branches ?i Congress, he must have supposed that the average rale t u of duty at the expiration of that act, would have been aufilcient to produce a revenue forgoveinment, large enough , to keen it out of debt,and to have afforded all the incidental ,r protection our manufactures might at that period inquire. 1 We srgao that his opinions trust hove been somewhat similar to what we stated, Irom the fact that the compro1 nine act gradually reduced the duties fiom a very high _ rate, to the lowest average demanded by the most ultra tree trade advocate* in the country. Mr. Clay say* he was not in Congress whan the present tariff' act became a Is law, which amounts to at much as saying he does not e consider himself responsible for Its principal features, ir In June, 184J, the average duty on dutiable imports was 's twenty per cent. In September of the same year the prea sent tariff" took effect immediately, raising the average 1. rate of duty to thirty aix per cent, a rise of seventy-live it per cent on the former average The proposed tariff reo duces the average duty to thirty per cent in five months, u and to twenty-five per cent in about eighteen months; Id I making a difference of about thirty-three per cent from n | th? former average These fluctuations and great diff-r. j ences have a very injurious influence on trade, and the if i wiener honru system is agreed upon, regulating trade and n ! commerce, the better for all parties. There is no reason d ' why this qu-stien should bo made a political one. There ' is no cause for party f'-eling regarding the tariff act, and d until it is taken up with the detmmination to make ita ' provisions as perfect as poss.blc for the good of the people r nt large, without reference to sectional feeling, we cannot 0 aspect any permanency or liability, a Annexed wa give, the ilutiaa raduoed .to] ad [ealerstn
