She tnust, however, have made her appearance soon j after thgt hour, and we shall, therefore, distribute her news throughout this city early this morning. The Sunday Herald. The Sunday Herald to-morrow will contain a singular and extraordinary memoir of Zulma Marache, written by herself in French, which she gave to the District Attorney, as a statement of her case previotta to the trial of Lnretit This is u more curious and interesting chapter in human nature than can be found in the far-famed "Mysteries of Paris," by Eugene Sue. It is Fleur de Marie's own story in her own words. To-morrow it will be given from her own manuscript. Tlw Ltocofoeo Municipal Reform Meeting. We certainly have never been favored with a more amusing specimen of the impudence of any net of partv politicians than that exhibited at Tammany Hall last night. The cool impudence of the bawd so felicitously described by that most sapient of men, king Solomon, when he represented her as wiping her mouth, and saying ' I have done no wickedness," was the height of modesty, when compared to this conduct of the locofocos of New York. Only think how we have liai a locofoco ' Mayor and Common Council for years past, laughing, ridiculing, scouting with a degree of tang ftuid of which they only are capable, every idea of municipal reform, and now having mad: the discovery that the great mass of the citizens having had their eyes elfectually opened, have organized a formidable party for the purpose of sweeping these lazy, corrupt, worthless municipal officers from their seats at the Common Council board, and placing in their stead honest,faithful, efficient public servants, who will give us reform, they actually have the impudence to come forward with a degree of coolness almost incredible, and call a public meeting, 1 pass resolutions violently in favor of all sorts of re- ' form, and make long speeches, all running over 1 with declamation against the corruptions which have prevailed, and the most solemn promises of immediate and full reform ! Was there ever another sucli specimen of the brazen effrontery of miserable party politicians 1 The whigs discovered a good deal of brass at their!meeting in National Hall, but they may now well hide their dimished heads, when contrasted with.the politicians of Tammany Hall. Just let us say one word ortwo more in exposure of this miserable, silly, impudent conduct of the locofoco party. Have they not had the full power in their hands during the last year of giving to the city the reforms so loudly demanded 1 Have they ' made a single isolated effort to do so ? Not one. Are not our streets filthier than ever ! Are not the 1 taxes higher1! Are not the abuses of the police system 1 more gross and glaring than ever. And have this common Council not been reminded by the independ- ' ent press, again and again, and again, of the neces- ' sity of a variety of reforms! I-Iave we not, after 1 every one of their meetings, called on them to do something in the way of reform! And now, on 1 inc eve 01 <m election, iney conic um, hiuuiii iiic platform at Tammany Hall, with the Mayor in the chair, and protest, in the face of heuven, that they are ready to do any tiling for reform?that they j must and will give as reform?that they will not give rest to their eyes, nor slumber to their eye- 1 lids, till they give ti9 reform I And so zealous and ' earnest are they, that nothing will satisfy them but ' the complete overthrow of the present constitution of the city government, and the erection in its room of a most magnificent fabric, under the superintendence of the Hon. Eli Moore, as architect, and which looks almost as grand and imposing on paper, as the big map of the new Jerusalem of the Kourierites, to be seen at their hall in Grand street, where Horace Greeley is accustomed to expound thedoctrinesof the new Saviour of mankind. But it is needless to expose farther this humbug movement. This two hours talking to Buncomb, ^ in Tammany Hall, will not divert tne great mass of the citizens of this metropolis, from their united and energetic purpose* of achieving municipal re- ' form by the agency of new, upright, out-and-out ' practical reformers. These fair spoken reformers, who come shouting now at the eleventh hour? 1 " Here is reform?here is reform!" even if they were in earnest?which, of course, no one is qihie silly enough to imagine?would deservedly experience the fate of the lying youth in the fable, whose warning when the wolf really came was entirely disregarded. Trtal for Abortion.?The Court of Sessions has been occupied for the past two days with the ma! of a young man named Napoleon Lsreux, a lady named Madume Catherine Ouetal.and another known as Madame Costello, on a charge of procuring abortion from a young French girl named Zulma Marache, the affianced bride ol Lareux.? The developments as contained in the testimony, are astounding, and exhibit the present state of licentiousness in this city in a broad light. The case ot John Jones, the button maker, of Piatt street, or the Van Cott exposition, is a mere beginning to the facts here made public, which have attracted crowds in attendance at the Court, being principally from a certain portion of our French population. The testimony in the case closed last evening, about seven o'clock, and James T. Brady, Esq , summed up for the defence in a most able speech. He will be followed by James R. Whiting for the prosecution, this morning at 10 o'clock, whose speech will be reported in full, and published in our Sunday morning's edition. The case will then be submitted to the jury under the charge of Alderman Scoles, and in our Sunday morning's edition we shall give a full report, with a most beautifully written account of the love, courtship, seduction and abandonment of this interesting, but unfortunate girl, as written by her self in the French language, while confined in the Eldridge street prison on a charge of slander against one of the accused parties. American Bible Society and their Printer We understand that the American Bible Society have discharged their printer?but the printer a jects to the discharge, and refers to the authority of the Bible, chapter and verse, against the act of the Society. This i* m very curious case, and brings up the important question in theology, " whether a Bible Society can exist without a printer?"?a question equally important with that discussed by the Rev I)r. Potu and Dr. Wainwright, " whether there can be a church without a Bishopl" In both cases we suppose a good deal depends on the salary. We shall, however, examine the former question, which has not yet been discussed, and show clearly that the society believe, that il a church can exist without a Bishop, a Bible Society can also exist without a printer, particularly if they can save money by the operation, and do as much salvation, too. ___________ "The Nativm" op t? Fiast WA*i> hold a great meeting to-night. They have nominated for Alderman, Edwin B. Clayton ; for Assistant, Wil- j ham Witxell. __________ 'Kh It will be seen by an advertisement in our columns, that Mr. Colton gives another grand exhibition of Laughing Gas, on Monday evening next, in the Broadway Tabernacle. We hope he may not get beaten, as he was at the last exhibition. Sjikntipu: Remarks.? Broneon's lecture tonight. See advertisement. Jl! J", - -1 'JIM 'J The Spring Election?Astounding Development*, Mill More Astounding Prospect*. Tlie meeting* of the American Republican*, which we reported yesterday, and which were held at Washington Hall and in the Park, on Thursday evening last, have astounded all parties throughout every ward of the city. For some time past this | party has been very quietly and silently at work? j making no noise, but organizing their forces, canvassing every ward and every street; and at the first bugle blast, mustering to approve of the nomination of James Harper, we find them bringing forward a force twice as great as ever we saw collected at Tammany Hall, and threefold more numerous than thut which met to approve Morris Franklin, at National Hall. We have been utterly astounded at witnessing the assembling of such a multitude. Where they came Irotn is more than we can tell. And, we ure yet more astounded by the positive evidence given its, that during the last two or three months of perfect calm in this city, these "natives ' have, alter a diligent canvass, obtained a list of nearly *211,000 electors in thii city, who are pledged to vole the American Republican ticket! Every man of these 23,000 has been culled on during the last tew months and is, we repeat it, pledged to vote tor the "native" candidates, from Mayor down to the lowest ward officer. This statement may well astonish the whig and locofuco politicians. It may be discredited. They may affect to disbelieve it Hut we do not for a moment doubt the existence of an organized force, under the banner of the new party, whicii will produce the most remarkable results at the polls. Indeed, we do not want much more startliug evidence than [ that afforded by the multitudes who were collected an Thursday night, filling the streets, filling the Park, filling every avenue in that neighborhood.? When the wavering politicians throughout the wards begin to reflect on such a multitude,assembled under the new organization, what effect will not be produced in these waverersl We have not the slightest doubt but that vast numbers of the democrats will leave Tammany Hall at the ensuing spring election, and that larger numbers of the whigs will utterly abandon the Fourier candidate of that taction. It might be supposed that the particular opinions of this new party in relation to the Catholics and the Irish would injure their cause amongst liberalminded men, and perhaps to some small extent they ' may have this influence. But these opinions do not orm the great moving principle of agitation in this tew party. The universally felt necessity for municipal reform?the corruptions of the old factions? ' he irrepressible desire of the great mass of the citi- ( r.ens for deliverance Irom the evils of misgovern- 1 meut?these have been the causes which have given i birth, vigor, force and character to the new move- ' ment. The holders of property?the tax payers? ( ihe merchants?the mechanics?the working men of ' all classes, for more than a year past have been un- r animous in condemning, in the most violent man- ' ner, the gross outrages perpetrated by the whig and 1 locofoeo members of the corporation on the people s jf this city. We have been crying out for refonn 1 or years pas'. "Give us police reform?give u* ' eduction of taxes?give us clean streets?give is a just and efficient municipal government," have jeen the united voice of all classes, except the 1 miserable office beggars and office holders, who ' liave been battening on the corruptions of the old rotten factions; and to this cry the old parties have s turned a deaf ear on all occasions. They have I laughed, sneered, hooted at the idea of giving any ' reform. The people got tired of this game. They t determined to rise in their own might, and obtain t reform. Hence the creation of the new party? tipnce its sudden progress to full maturity and el- s Active organization?hence its present astounding s magnitude and force. These have been the cause* if tlie revolution now in prooncct; and to * narry out this revolution, we believe the "natives" I ?the new party?can collect from the honest tax- t puyers of this city any amount of money?to the extent ol a million of dollars, if necessary?to pay ' the expenses of the agitation. With these facts and prospects before us, we < have some hopes of effecting a revolution at the ensuing spring election in the city, and of obtaii | nig some relorin in the Corporation. If it be correct, as we have no doubt it is, that the " natives" have already on their lists nearly 23,000 pledged members, there can be no doubt about the result. | Their victory is certain. Meanwhile, we sav to the natives?" Go on? igiute?agitate?agitate?vote the whole ticket in -very ward?and the morning after the election will see you with your feet on the necks of both i ihe old rotten factions." 1 Magnificent Exhibition of Original Painting<>r the Old Masters.?In a lew days one ol the , most magnificent collection of paintinns ever exhibited will be opened at Clinton Hall. This col lection consists of upwards ol seventy painting^ valued at about $60,000. Some of them being worih between $2,000 and $3,000 each. The subjects are chiefly classical and scriptural, with a few portraits and landscapes. They are the works ol Poussin, St. Giovani, Mateo Kosini, Albano, Carracci, Pietro Testa, Volieruno, Marco Ricci, Julio Romano, Paul Veronese, and others of the old Italian school. This collection will form a moat attractive and profitable study not only to the amateur, but also to. the artist of the highest rank Some of the paintings occupied a place in the most superb collections of Spain and Italy, and their exhibition here will indeed form an era in the history of the art in this country. Such a collection is no where to be seen except in some of the choicest European gaiirucs. i uc proprietor win exninu mem?ior they cannot be sold, they are esteemed too valuable for that disposition of them?and in order that the whole American public may have an opportunity of inspecting them, the price of admission will be only one or two shillings He will also permit artists to make copies on the same plan as at the Louvre and other galleries in Europe. When the exhibition opens, we shall endeavor to give a more particular account of the principal paintings. Mr. Jt.'stice Low.vdkn.? Our respected fellow citizen, the late Oliver M. Lowndes, with his daughter, left this city for Washington on the 14th iust. He was out of health, but in good spirits. When on his way from Baltimore to Washington, the weather being cold Hnd damp, and the cars , he.ited 10 excess with anthracite coal, some intpruI dent person opened the windows; he took u severe cold, as did several gentlemen who accompanied him. He remained one day in "Washington, and on hi? return to Baltimore became very ill, and died suddenly on the 20th, deeply regretted by it large circle of sincere friends. There were lew gentleman in our city who were more gent rally acquainted and respected. He was a most industrious and useful citizen, and it will be difficult to fill In*place in onr society. Fire in Hudson .Street ?The fire which occurred yesterday morning between 4 and 5 o'clock, at the corner of Jay and Hudson streets, requires investigation on the part of the mayor and municipal authorities. It was first perceived in the grocery store, which the owner avows was shut up at the usual hour. How r fire could occur in the store is beyond comprehension, as the door was found iinJoclctd when the fire was discovered. The lives of more than a dozen persons, man, women and children, were placed in the most imminent jeopardy, and an investigation should be had forthI with. Arson, not to any robbery, should never be skipped over lightly. The inhabitants of the dwelling piirt of the building, nn I the neighbors, ask fin investigation.

The committee appointed to make a report in relation to the contemplated railroad between New York and New Haven, have done so. It is favorable to-the project. One of the reasons given why the road should he built, is that i*. would be indispensable in time oi war. The capitalist* . nrror/ml in ntolrintr rioooccunr onnii{piao an j . mined to push the matter, if the return* from tbo<e engaged in obtaining information, give the moit rcasonablo encouragement. The amendment* to the Constitution of this State in relation to State indebtedne3* were ordered to a third resiling in the Hou*e. These amendment* propose? First?In relation to the present debt, they confirm all tne pledge* and guarantee* of the act of 1842, and carry out it* objects by providing absolutely for it* liquidation in a period of twenty two and a halt years. Second?In relation to future indeb'eduess, they prohibit the incurring any debt by the State, beyond 51,000,000, (except in case of an insurrection or invasion) unless the specific question shall be submitted to acd approved by the people The amendments also provide for the annual payment of the interest on the debt that may hereafter bo made, by taxation or otherwise, and the redemption of the principal within a period ef eighteen years. The amendment to the Constitution of this .State will prevent any accumulation of the puhlic debt, and is a measure of much importance, and of great benefit.? i'he present indebtedness of the State compels the tariff of tolls on our public work.* to lie placed at a very high point In consequence of the many routes for the transportation of freight from the west, having established a greet competition, our canals cannot obtain the proportion of produce they have heretofore received. The canals of Pennsylvania draw largely on tho receipts from the Krle canal. The YVelland canul on the north attract immense quantities >f produce from those of this State. With these works in active operation and determined competition, it is necessary to reduce the rata of ta b on our woiks, to secure sufficient travel to keep them in active use. The obstacle to tho adoption of this measure is the immense debt of the State, and the large revenue required to meet the annual interest. This revenue is derived principally from canal tolls, and the rate hat to be kept up to the ' highest point possible, to provide an amount sufficient to meet the henvy annual payments. It is only by a reduc" tion of the public debt, that the toll* on the canal can he reduced, and the debt can only be reduced by passing laws preventing the smallest accumulation. This subject will in a few years become one of vast importance to this section of the country,and the sooner retrenchment commences, to be prepared for an emergency, the better. Most of the public improvements made in the western States, havo very indirectly, an unfavorable influence upon those of thia State. Canal* connecting the water* of the Ohio river with thoie of Lake Krie, an<l thoae running through Indiana and Illinois, connecting the water* of the MUsil?ipi>i with tha*e of Lakea Michigan and Krie, will draw a great deal ot produce from the notthern route* to tho?e running morn aoutherly. It i? a matter requiring a great ileal of investigation, whether the reduction of toll* on the canal* of thl* State would not increase the revenue lrom that aource, by the additional freight that would tie traniported. The Legislature will he compelled to take thin matter in hand before many se**ion* hare paa*ed over. The amendment* to the Constitution above alluded to, is the first step toward* a reduction of rates on all the canals of the State. f Anneaed, we give an act passed at the late session of i the Ohio Legislature, regarding insolvent debtors.
