Letters and papers will, therefore, be received at the Herald office till 4 o'clock this aftei. noon. Extraordinary Political Movements In New York. Yesterday will be a memorable day in the annals of this mighty city. We had a clear day?a bright nun?the streets were passable? but above all, we had in the evening two mighty Tyler demonstrations?a splendid dinner at the $hakspeare Hotel?and a multitudinous sup|>er at Washington Hall, both thronged with enthusiastic friends for the re-election of Captain Tyler to the next Presidency. A full report of these unexpected and wonderworking proceedings will be found in this day's paper. The Shaks|?eare celebration was got up at 00 per head, by the Post Ollice and Custom House, of the conservative stam|i?that at Washington Hall at the rate of 50 cents, on the cheap Canal street plan, by the people at large, who almost eat up the whole block. These movements are but the beginning of rnirucles and wonders. A Tyler State Convention will be held on the 25th of April. It was demonstrated last night, as clear as two and two make tour, that both Clay and Van lluren are eat up, used up, und utterly demolished?all except the tails of each.? To finish the busftiess, it is now only necessary to remove all the officials in the Custom Hou?e and Post Office?go for Texas strong?and the tiling is done. Read the reports of these doings and tremble. We begin verily to believe that Captain Tyler will yet be the next President. His good luck has never yet tailed or faltered. IIow he is to be reelected we know not?oennot divine?Cod alone can tell?but good luck can do wonders. Progress and Prospects of Citv Reform.? We do not mean to deceive the public, or ourself, in relation to the approaching city election. We frankly confess, that, ifi spite of all the large meetings and enthusiasm of the Reformers, or American Republicans, we doubt very much whether they can succeed, unless all the sound, sensible and independent citizens come out on the day of election and vote for them The democrats of Tammany Hall?and the whigs of National Hull, ure moving heaven and earth to defeat the Reformers, for fear it may injure their Presidential candidates next fall. Nothing can give triumph to the Reform party, but the self-awakening of the people?of tax payeis?of merchants?of mechanics?of all and every The first thing to be done next week is for every true City Reformer to put his fiat on?go out a visiting?seee very friend and acquaintance? discuss (he cpiestiun of city reform?point out tfie necessity ot abandoning both the old parties forthis electidn, and of going the whole for the city No injury can come to Van Buren or Clay from such a course. Unless this be done, we despair of ever seeing New York a clean, economical, orderly, moral, honest, or well governed city. In fact, it will only get worse as it gets older. City Taxation.?The brazen-faced impudence of the two old rotten factions?both wings and democrats, is without a parallel, out of the lowest of the lower regions. At the great meeting at TamnmnvIMnil. the other eveninsr. the democrats admit ed a report in which we find they have confessed judgment, and admitted the truth of the following atrocious statement as a specimen of their rapacity, plunder, and extravagance:?

Thanksgiving?Clay Minstrels. Hartford, Citv Hotel, March 29. Did you ever see two rampant colts, saddled, bridled, nnd backed, ready lor a start!? if so you can lornt sonic idea ot t e lii^li mettled state of parties in this region ol Connecticut at the present moment. Every thing is prepared for action, and waiting for the word "go," which will be given on Monday next, and it will then be pull Dick, pull Bob, and the Devil take the hindmost. Every scheme and expedient are resorted to by both par ties, mid their presses are filled with short cut para- i graphs, headed in full faced black, with captions I such as " loeofoco lies"?"federal desperation"? i " the bugle blast"?"whig bait for abolitionists"? i "come home, come home"?"pipe laying in I Rocky Hill"?to the polls, to the polls"?"ifiiwn - | with them"?"up and at them"?" rain or shine" 1 1 "Tom Benton, Cleaveland, and the Devil"? ] "Harry Clay, Baldwin, and destruction." Ace., Sec. i Meetings are held almost every night, and the i whole State is Hooded with travelling whig elec- 1 tioneercrs, under command of Major General Ho- ' race i reciey, of the Fourier Division. There was i to have been a grand whig turn out in this city last evening, at which Col. Thayer of New York, was advertised to be present; but his nonarrival by the t.'uin from New Haven, the whole affair was unavoidably postponed until a future ; day. i This place is famous for its variety of newsou- i pers. The wings have two daily prints, called i "The Connecticut Courant" and "The Daily Jour- e n il." The democrats one christened "The Daily t Times,"?the abolitionists a weekly, bearing the title ?>f "The ('hristian Freeman," mid last, and I t may truly say, least, the Tyler party a weekly organ with the high-sounding name of "The Patriot and Ragle." The abolition press is ably edited by Wni. H. Burleigh, who is now travelling the State and ( lecturing on slavery and Birney, and bitterly op- | posing C/lay at every jump. As an evidence of the , tone of this abolition press, I give you the gist of ' several miscellaneous articles in the last number i that lays before me, by quoting ihe caption, beginmug witli "The great duellist of the nation"? , "Significant?Texas"?"Cl.ty and Slavery"?"Biruey and freedom," fee. Arc. The Tyler organ is a puny atlair, although an old paper, hut (he very name of its editor, "P. 1$. (ioudsell," betokens that he has made u pretty good bargain in loaves and fishes, in defending the administration. Some few weeks since it made a slight demonstration in favor of Cleaveland, the democratic candidate for governor, hut "that article" in the Madisonian, instructing the Tyler party not to vote for Van Buren men, because it would add to his chances of nomination at Baltimore, has closed its mouth, and not a word ol committahsm has been heard from it since The last article in the Madisonian may call it out to-moriow in opposition to Cleaveland, but womi vrrrona. Talk ot "making voters," as we New Yorkers term it. hv naturalization? 1 stepped over to the City Hall to-day, where the select men of this town were assembled, and saw fifty-nine "freemen" manufactured m almost as many minutes. The laws governing elections in this State,compel every inan either to do military duty, serve as an active fireman, or lie possessed of property that will rent tor $7 |ier an?um, and, therefore, those that have not complied with the two first requisitions most he possessed of the last. This 1.1 ........ ,.i r.r.i I.. I... less than t<? ooini? l every man to be a real estate holder before he could he tidmilied hh a voter and a " freeman." Hul it is easily managed. Wealthy I party men ol both widen who are owners of real es | tate, draw up a deed, which is placed in the hands id some one of their active Iriends, who enters therein the names of "Tom,"" Dick," " Harry," s and twenty others, il lie pleases, and thus they re- I present real estate that rents lor $7 per annum, t comply with the " letter" of the law, and are admitted as "freemen " As soon as this ceremony is over, and their names are registered as entitled h to a vote, the deed is torn up or stuck in the (ire, t and thus is ihis ridiculous law evaded in its "spirit," and made a matter of burlesque and mockery. Common sense and the advance of republican prin- ' ciples should induce the coming legislature to re- I peal it altogether, as it is n mere nullity on the sta- ? tute hook ol llie State. The result in the Stale on Monday next isdoubt- '' ful indeed. Tile whigs talk with great c onfidence ? and are hacking their opinions pretty freely with their money. The whole influence of the party is xercised to bear upon the manufacturers and those f hi their employ, and their op|ionents are charged > with principles of free trade more ultra than any "south Carolinian ever dreamed or imagined. My 1 iuipression, produced from close observation of the i movements of both parties, contrasted with previ- | us rt sulis and sustained by private information,inluce in** lo the brlicj that the whigt will carry tlw ^tate, which opinion will certainly be confirmed or coiitradicteil on Monday next!

" would not set Cleuvelund hack a d <! lot in the election." While on this subject 1 must refer to something that looks like an onset. It seems that in the town of Preston, in this county, a certain minister of "the old established order has taken rather open ground in favor ot Clay and the whig ticket, and has been detected in purchasing anil circulating Clay Song Books, which it is alleged were obtained by forwarding an order like the following :? " Timoi nr Bui er, Bookseller:? Sib?Please send by bearer 1 1 dozen Village Hymns 1 do. Church Psalmodies 3 do. Clay Minstrels. Your atl'ectionate Christian brother, Rev. N. B. COLES. P. S.? Send the Clay Minstrels by all means?the others I can wait lor till alter the election " This expose I have no doubt will he followed hy some demonstration from the pulpit on Sunday . next in favor of the author of the Thanksgiving proclamation, that "may not set liiin hack a hit" on the day of the election. But enough of this? my ears are overflown^ with reports?lalse issues? i false statements, and hre, foam, and tury of party leaders. Yours, C. N.

Norwich, Connecticut, > , Friday, March 29. J I have kept a steady and earnest trace of the east wing of the Tyler party, from its tail in New Haven, middle in Hartford, until I have lound its head in Norwich. The Tyler organ here is called 1 the "Norwich News." and it is the most efficient I and active sheet of 111,it party in the country. Ill . editor has hoisted the whole Democratic ticket,notwithstanding the order of the "Madisonian," and goes the whole figure with such licks as" Veto Ue' iiiocrats"?" Unholy giasp of Clay federalists"? . ' Hush on, my boys"?" Honest John Tyler? Cleaveland ana Connecticut," See., Sec. In reply to the Madisonian, he says:? " The talk which we hear trom a certain quarter, that by so doing we vlrtiiall> endorse the (landers on the Ad ministration, of new l>orn democrats, wno now so ardently fling up their caps and advocate n third nomitia ion oi i Mr Van liuren, is all nonsense.

I Ins quiet, nice, moral and orderly town has been the seen of much excitement w ithin a few days past Yon are aware as perhaps all yonr ' readers arc. that the sin of adultery is a crime i I here, punishable in the state prison, winch may . account for the well known fact that more than one-fourth of the women of the pare of your city are Iroin this slate, being driven hence hy the ( commission ot this offence, and the after fear of punishment Hut to the scene ot interest.

Wilson alias Bill Smith. Tiiis " unheard ol crime" is alleged to have been committed in tin darkness of the nights of the 10th, 11th and 12tl days ol March inst. The indictment classifies i us the " abominable, detestable and atrocioui crime of adultery. The fair victimess is of tin lat, freckled and forty order, and it appear has been suspected and detected in other acts o striking resemblance. The testimony was rich,race and peculiar. A very pretty dark-eyed maid, o blooming sixteen, named Miss Caroline Uoberts was the first witness called. She stated, with al due modesty, that she und Mrs. Mary Chapi>ell liac resided with the unfortunate victim of the law a boarders?that being short bedded, she was coin (impelled, from the force of circumstances, t< deep?not iu the sume bed with Mrs. Chappeil? alt, no?but to re|>ose between the same sheet with the two unfortune prisoners, and therefore t< 'ier certain knowledge, the " abominable, detesta ale and atrocious crime" of adultery was commit led?not with her?oh, no?but with the unfortu aate leniale prisoner. Mrs. Mary Chappell,who ap >eared a little the worse for wear, testified that sh< saw the prisoners go to bed "exactly us if the] were husband and wile," where they remained du ing the live-long night, und were found snugl] ocked in their own arms and those of tiaint Mor die us. when daylight did appear the next morning Mr. Cornelius ltaust confirmed a part ol this testi nony, but before he concluded, the court, turv.ani spectators also concluded that lie and the dilapida led Mrs. Chappell had reposed upon one pillow tint he obstinately denied all commission of th< "abominable, detestable and atrocious crime c adultery." The jury?a Connecticut jury?after very snort ubsence, returned a verdict of guilt against Mrs. Elizabeth Randall, in manner an jorm us charged against her, on two counts in til indictment, the sentence for which will be J'ou years in the state prison ! Wilson, her paramoui entered a plea of guilty to one count, and will In sent to manufacture rone and oakum tor two year '? the state prison Thus endeth this severe am lerious lesson to all fornicators and adulterers ii he land of steady habits. My next letter will be the last before I send yoi he full returns of the State on Tuesday next. Yours, C. Probable Repudiation in Pennsylvania.?Ac jording to the best accounts, the Legislature o Pennsylvania, like that of Maryland and othei States, will establish practical repudiation, and thei adjourn. When they so close the doors of tin Legislature at Ilarrisburg, they should also opei thedoors of the Penitentiary at Philadelphia?botl communities will be on an equal footing Grea State that?with all its coal,iron, and yet won't pat ts debts. More Steam Vessels.?There are now on tin docks, at Mr. Wrn. If. Brown's ship yard, in thi ity, three beautifully modelled steam vessels, o ibout three hundred tons each. They are to In itted with the Ericsson propeller, and one will b< tent to Texas, another to Richmond, and the thiri o Fall River. Steam vessels, with submerged screws, are ver; apidly taking the place of both "canvass back' vessels, and the big wheel-house steamers. Then rre at this moment between fifty and a hundrei iteainers, ranging from 200 to 800 tons each, in ser vice in this country, propelled by the Ericssoi icrew. They have spread from Maine to Louisi ma, and over all the Northern Lakes. In less than five years we shall see steamers Iriven on the submerged principle, entirely mono lolizing our coasting trade. Italian Opera.?A very interesting sel?ctioi rom several operas preceded the second act o Pelisario. which whs vcrv miicli rcliulintl Inst eve ling, in spite of its frequent repetition during th< teason.

To-night is the last performance of the eason. Madame IIeij.hero's Concert.?This Concert las been postponed till Thursday evening next, a Washington llall. According to the beet accounts t appears that the postponement lgst Thursday evening was in consequence of the sfcigular indit position of Madame Hellberg herself. It seem that tins very beautiful creuture is possessed of th most exquisite sensibility, and as this would liav been her first appearance in public she becam quite overwhelmed by her feelings, and was abac lutely unfit to appear before the public on that ev? ning. She is a very singular being. At one nu ment she was in the highest degTee of exoitemei at the prospect of a great Concert, but when tli people began to Hock in, the very idea of a crow quite unnerved her, and she becntne quite part lyzed. Wallace, De Begnis, Barton and Timn who attended to assist her, were quite astounded t her great sensibility. We understand, howevei that she lias recovered herself to a very considei able extent, and will, no doubt, nerve herself so a to be able to appear on Thursday next. l>e Begnis and all who have heard Madam Hellberg unite in saying that she is one of the 11101 remarkable dtbulantes that have appeared here.Young?beautiful?so gifted?nnd so sensitive, ther will be a great crowd to hear her, as there has bee greut curiosity excited.

Mr. * Bankhead, the new British minister, hud just arj. rived at Veru Cruz. { ^ Several persons had returned to New Orleans, 1 who left that city some months since, as they 1 stated, to search for treasure supposed to be buried j near Vera Cruz. Their movements excited the j suspicion of the Mexican authorities, and they b were arrested on a charge ot conspiring to assassinate Santa Anna. Thev were subsequently released, however, and immediately left tne countryMr. Joseph breenham, one of the largest merchants in \ era Cruz, and formerly of New York, died at Vera Cruz on the 6th inst , leaving property to the amount of #4,000,000 to #5,OIK),000. The U. 8. brig of war Bainbridge, (which arrived on the 8th inst.) the British frigate Rose, and the French frigate Brilliant, lay at Sacrificios when the Pilot left. We are informed by a passenger that on his way from the city of Mexico to the former port, he took an opportunity of visiting the Texan prisoners at Perote, and that he found tliem much more comfortably situated than they had previously been. Those who had been sick were then either perfectly recovered, or in a state of convalescence, and the authorities had begun to evince much more . kindly feeling toward them than what they had e been accustomed to receive. a Texas.?This country, which is a modern paruy dise, is now in a state of abeyance, awaiting the <' movements of our government. On the subject of ? annexation, one ol the Texan papers, the "Gulves f ton News," of the 16th inst., says :? e Wo believe, should the project of annexation not be x consummated soon, we shall be inclined to play the part j of some others, and say Texas don't want annexation, no 1 how, and didn't from the first The fact is, the prospects of the country are becoming every day more nattering Witliiti th?? iinvf four nr fiv?> davG tin li>oa (lian ua munv foreign vessel* have arrived, the most of them Ailed with emigrants. A day or two ago we announced the arrivul of a brig from Antwerp, with one hundred and thirty-six emigrants; there is now nnother outside from Amsterdam, with one hundred nnd fifty; and we learn that others are f daily expected. The country is certainly going ahead, and could the difficulties which have hitherto existed he r settled in some manner, so as to give a prospect of permal nent peace, no doubt can be entertained of the imrnta diate prosperity and rapid advancement of the country. i From China.?The barque Childe Harold, Capt. i Johnston, arrived at litis port last evening, bringing t advices from Macao to the 2d Dec.

The very style is prepossese sing, for " The Columbian" wears an external of 1 gentility which fully authorizes it to assume, a - juste litre, the title of " The Lady's and Gentlei man's Magazine." To enter into the merits of the - number before us?that for April, 1844?would exceed the bounds at present at our disposal ; hut it i, is with no wish to make invidiousselections where - all are good, that we notice especially an article by Mrs. Emma C. Embury, entitled " Genius and ? us Rewurds," and " Lacy Maynard," by Miss Marc iha Russell. The lines by J C. H. are unquestionably written with the feelings of a poet, without which there can he no poetry. It would he , unjust to this Magazine not to notice the high artislical skill engaged in its embellishment ; and to " s,ly that the two engravings which ornament thic s number, " The Emperor and the King," and the " Ilour before the Duel," are gems " of purest ' ray and alone quite a Bulhcient inducement to purchase the work. 1 Hki.igion in America.?The writer of this work ' aimed at giving a faithful picture of the religious 5 and moral state of his country, and his success will no doubt be acknowledged by the immense number who should and must take a lively interest in this subject A spirit of christian charity towards all denominations pervades Mr. Band's work, and the truth is declared without nnkindness. We predict for this work a very extensive sale, and the sooner the enquiring and reading nublic supply themselves with this well written and comprehen' sive treatise, the better. It is published by Messrs. y Harper & Brothers, No. 82 Cliff street, in two parts i- ?each 25 cents. s 8hakspeare.?No. 2 of the very beautiful edition e of Shakspeare, now publishing, edited by Gulian C.

She was not the most itl'.-u.tnate creature in the world, her upper lip and chin being almost ripe for the professor of the tonsorian art, und her face was otherwise strongly marked by pimples, freckles, blotches, lie. Before she hud used half a bottle uf the "Poudres Subfiles" the superfluous hair disappeared, and in a single application of the Italian Medicated Soap her skin became quite clear and free lrom former blemishes, so that with a slight touch of the "Vegetable Itougu" on each cheek, and a new dross and bonnet, she was not rec gnised by her own mother, on her return to Concord last week.

The bill sent up from the Lower House for concurrence, i providing for the payment of the interest on the debt o' Pennsylvania, which we stated had passed the Senate of that State, with an amendment that the interest on the certificates of scrip issued to holders of stock over $20, be reduced to A per cent instead of 6, as reported from the House, was referred back to the House for concurrence on the amend, ment, and after a long debate defeated. The bill as it stoo I when it came from the House would doubtless have been periectly satisfactory to the creditors of the State, had its prov sions been carried out. The disagreement thut exists between both brunches of the Pennsylvania Legists, ture in relation to the modifications of several bills pro posed for the relief of the State creditors, will, in all probability prevent any action on the subject this session tlin' will settle the question. It would not surprise many should the Legislature ul that State adjourn without passing the first act, providing for the prompt payment of the interest on the public debt. It undoubtedly would agreeably disappoint many creditors of Pennsylvania should the Legislature even commit the^State by promising pay' ment at any appointed time. These goods are protected by a duty of nearly fifty par ent, and prices show an improvement of fifteen to twenty per cent within six mouths. The proposed tariff reduces the duty twenty-four per cent, to nearly half of that charged under the present act.
