(VEVV YOKK HERALD. ,v?w York, Bundajr, Aptll 11, 1M4. The Vices ok Hkuoiocs Fkkedom.?Religious liberty iscoeval, in this country, with civil and political libeity. They date their birth from the same period, und owe their origin to the same cause? the rights of man in Ilia individual, social and political capacity. The constitution, secures to die people of thia country, these rights in their most extended sense. Nor can one of them be destroyed or disturbed, without effecting the others ? They are all dear to the American people. The experience of hfty years lias tested their utility and usefulness, and now at ihis day the people of Ame rica cling with the warmest affection ami love lor their free institutions ot government. Their |?opuUrity increases as tune developes tlieir blessed influences upon humanity. At no tune in our history were the people more unanimous in yielding their full faiih and reliance on ihe goodness and permanency of our systems of free government ? As much, however, as we inay prize civil and political liberty?great, however, as we may suppose our privileges to he from the prevalence of free governments in our land, where these rights are protected and secured,we shall do religiout liberty inlUstice, it we suppose it of less importance than the otheiswe have just named. The truth is, this is perhaps the most important evidence of the advance of human liberty that the modern ages of the world has exhibited to mankind. And it was the privilege oi America to light this torch of free, dom. The constitution of the United States di clares there* shall never be any religious tests.? When this declaration was made to the world, the people of Europe were astonished They could not conceive that such a thing could be. Church and States had been| so long wedded together,{that it wis sui>posed they could not exi.-t separate. The clergy and the laiiy in Europe both united in proclaiming their fears for the consequences, nd expressed their opinions, that the system would not work well und must be abandoned They have, probably, by this time, changed their opinions, or at least, their fears and alarms for its results, and continuance, must be very much lessened. Religious freedom is now more popular with the American people than when its first rays of light beamed from the constitution of our country. The connection of Church and State is so odious here, that in our primary assemblies, held for the ordinary purposes of government, a resolution is sure to be introduced, declaring the abhorance cf the people to a unity between Church and State. W.. want nn ulrnnff-r . ,1.. n ?l' tl.n ....Klin ing in favor of religious liberty than this. It is, indeed, in the opinion of the people, a jewel without price. It is the greatest boon that can be bestowed upon man. We must, however, be careful to duly appreciate this great blessing, and see that it be not abused. Like every other good thing, it may be perverted, and misapplied, and become an evil. Christianity is sometimes used as an instrument of evil ; and so also our civil liberty may lie abused to the worsi purposes. If we al^ow it to run into licentiousness, tumults, riots and disorders, it becomes a very great evil ; and so also the blessings of religious freedom inay be lost by neglect and want of care und attention. We have had some recent experience of the d ingers civil liberty is subject to in the disorders, riots, tumults, fcc., in courts of justice, in the halls of legislation, and in the streets and public places in our southern and western borders. The enemies of the free institutions of America have seized upon sliese things, to show the had tendency of republican institutions; and have used eveiy inean3 to depress and degrade our free systems of government in the opinion of the people of Europe, by a continual reference to these disturbances in our country. Some of the evils, mixed with the very numerous blessings of religious liberty, m y he stated, to put us on oui guard against thrm. Where there is no restraining influence, the sects and denominations will multiply. They have increased prodigiously in the United States since the organization of our government. They are at various as the opinions of mankind can make them. Some of them are as remarkable lor theii opposition to existing systems as they are for their eccentricity and absurdity. The entire freedom which religious opinions enjoy in our country, no doubt, very much facilitates the increase of tliese various sects ana creeds, public opinion must act upon this subject as it does upon civil and political liberty, its twin sisters. We restrain the licentiousness of liberty, by sending the schoolmaster abroad and keeping him abroad. Intelligence and virtue are the antidotes of the evils of civil liberty, and so they must be the remedies for the evils of religiout liberty. Another of the evils of religious liberty, or at least one very much increased by it, is the prevalence of a quarrelsome and contentious spirit, evinced by the different secb and denominations of Christians among us. We do not say, this is entirely cwing to the absence of all legal and constitutional restraints against religious doctrines, or the practice of them ; because various sects exist among other nations when, there is no religious freedom, who exhibit every other sentiment but those of love and affection for each other, but we do think, that the bitterness ol Teligious strife and contention between the various sects and denominations, is iieculiar to this country. We have a continued intestine religious wai among them. The pulpits of our country have been, in several instances, desecrated by heated wranglers, applauding their own, and degrading the system or creed of their opponent. Our city has, in a considerable degree, been free from this disturbance, but now the evil is in our midst; but thanks to our good comparative fortune to some other places in our land, no pulpit or house of God is desecrated. The religious pugilistics enter the field of the prtu, and heat, maul, and tear each other with all the fury that ambition fired the souls of the Athletic, in the games of strength and skill, and with all the stimulating influence that a hope of victory inspires. We consider these contentions one of the principal causes of the depression of true religion among us. 1 he subject of the antichristian contest, just referred to is, whether there can he a church without a bishop. The people will ultimately, and we think at no very distant day, see it is not a subject for angry collision, nor one that can evolve much good religious instruction and improvement. The duty of public religious instructors is, to inculcate upon the minds and hearts ol the people, the vsrjul and practical truths of the gospel. Faith, charity and humility, should he practised and imparted. This contentious spirit should be allayed, and it will be allayed. The remedy lies with the |>eople We cure the evils of civil liberty by tin influence of intelligence and virtue. As we saui before, the schoolmaster must be sent abroad am Kept abroad. The prevalence of virtue and know ledge will cure the evil. It is the remedy, and wt believe the only remedy. With reapec' to the pre sent excitement in our city, it will probably con untie until the combntants, or one of them, becomes weary or satisfied with the notoriety the battle has given him, when he will withdraw and the contest will end in what gamblers call a ilratt gam* ; lor no one supposed, or could suppose, that either of the parties thought it possible to be defeated. 'Hie evil, like a black cloud hanging over us, will We but temporary. In a short time it will pass away and be remembered only us things that were. Twknty Hod ok Cath.k Burnt ?The barn t1 Mr. Jacob Hake, in Manchester township, Yoik county, Pa . was destroyed l>y tire on Kriday night la-t together with lour horsea. filieen or twenty Ural .a horn ed cattle, IOU bushels of grain and a large rpiantity of h?) an-l atraw. Loaa fSUOO. Navai. Aproivtmevrs.?The following nomine tionn by the President were confirmed by the IJnitu Htatea Senate on Wednesday : ? William L. Howard to li ii Co nmxnder in tiie Navy; Theodore Barrett and J.JiMadiaon MulUajr, to be Lieutenant) in the.Navy. | The Horsss and the Obog Shops dens ot vice and crime will, we iru?t, atI trai l the iiiiuiediale attention ot our new corporaI tiou. in this city there are upward* of fifty or sixty ' gambling houses, many of them fitted up in ? style of great magnificence?the proceeds of the ruin of I thousands of victims. These places are kept snd supported by the llaslnlv-dressed, swaggering sharp' era, who are seen every day lounging about our [ fashionable hotels and along Broadway, every one of whom are well-known to our police, but who have been permitted year after year to carry on their nelarious work of plunder without the slightest molestation. The amount ot crime and ruin which these infamous establishments have been the means of producing is incalculable. Hundreds ol the most promising young men in business have ti??n ,,l i?. .. .. ..I ,k??. K I,.n? >?,l,.. j "? i"i tin uiu l? lutn. greatest proportion of the houses of ill-fume, and u vast amount of the licentiousness and vice which pollute our city, owe their existence. But it is unnecessary to dwell on the enormity of this evil. Every friend of morality and humanity knows it and deplores it. i The new corporation must at tfnce take appropriate measures for the suppression of these iniquitous establishments. Their numbers?their localities?their proprietors?their frequenters, all about them must be ascertained, and the strong arm of the law directed against them with crushing effect. The organization of anew system of police will be a necessary step in order to rid the city of the gamblers and sharpers who infest it. This will of course be one of the earliest measures of the new corporation. Last summer we recollect how the sirpets were infested from sun down till two or rhiee o'clock in the morning by abandoned women, Irawing after them crowds of rowdies mid va a- i nixiijs ol all descriptions, so as to make Broadway < a pertect highway of prostitution and blackguard ism. All this will be prevented by a new and efficient system of police. , The regulation of the grog shops will certainly he effected. Their closure on the Sabbath, and j their closure after a certain hour at night, must be i made imperative. It is impossible to exaggerate the beneficial effects which would follow a rigid and determined adoption of a regulation of this character. The abolition of the booths on the fourth of July?those disgraceful open outrages on public decency and good order?and, indeed, the adoption of all wise legislative measures for the pievention of intemperance, we certainly expect from'the new corporation. The Repeat. Associations?Where are they 1 ni i i i _r <l.. t?: .u i>amni ? w e nave uui iicuiu a wuru ui uieiiiaii ucpcai Associations since the recent election. What has become of them! What has become of the "Little Beggarman V' What has become of all the parade and fuss which was created about the organization of these associations before the election ! It looks very much as if the uprising of the people against ill those miserable and corrupt politicians, who endeavor to govern and lead astray certain sections ind masses for their own aggrandizement, had scattered to the four winds all those associations of articular classes, for purposes foieign to their duties as citizens. The trading politicians of all parties, who would deceive, and betray, and misdirect the people, have now received a lesson which they will not soon forget. Jockey Club.?The arrangements are now complete for the coming summer's sport. On the liist Tuesday in May we are' to have on the Union Course, Long Island, a day's racing, and another on the Beacon Course, N. J., will come off?a trot ting match between Ripton and Confidence, in harness, for $1000 a side, on Saturday, 15th June. There is a prospect of excellent sport this season; the horses are numerous and the stakes liberal, and it is expected that the sporting world will be all alive to secure success in the midst of great competition. There is a numerous list of horses in training at present at Baltimore. 1'. 11. Johuston has four in charge of Oeo.Waldron; T. R. S. Boyce has six in hand, on'" of which has been matched against Johnson's colt, Margrave, to coine ofl on the third ot May. J. 1). Kendall has four others, all going on well. Some of these horses are highly spoken of in sporting circles. The Cambridge.Park Trotting Course, in the vicinity of Boston, containing 55 acres, is now offered for sale, on liberal terms; the price specified is $20,000, and that sum, it is said, is a moderate one, and will very likely be easily procured. The citizens of Mobile feel much disappointed that their races are not to come ofl as announced in a sporting article in the Picayune some time ago. It seems that want of horses, not of money, has tl.o l.?,l nMonL YVI,,.t .. nil., .k-..

Steamer Ai.iiany.?The steamboat Albany, Captain Hubert B Macy, commenced running to and rom Troy direct (landing only at Albany each way) on Saturday, l'.iih April inst., from the foot ot Courtlandt street, at 7 o'clock, P.

The Albany has been lengthened and rebuilt during the lastwinfr, and is now handsomely fitted np as a night boat, with state rooms, large and commodious cabins and saloons, and in all her arrangements the proprietors have studied the comfort arid convenience of the passenger?her berths ire wide and bedding new, beside she is under the command of Captain Macy, than whom none stands higher before the travelling public for courteous attention to their wants. Mr. Maxwell, the steward, is also well known, he never sets a poor table and his berths are always clean. From the East.?We did not receive our eastern papers till 12 o'clock yesterday. They then came by Adams A: Co. ahead of the mail. A thick fog on Long Island Sound all Friday night was the probable cause of the delay. [h'rom Ronton papers, April 12.J The store of Pond tk Co., No 2S Merchants' Row, was entered on Wednesday evening, the safe?one made by (jay lor, of New York?opened by false keys, and a pocket book was taken from it containing about $S0 in money, ind notes to the amount of $40110 The pocket-hook was iound yesterday in Liberty Square, but the notes and money had been abstracted, excepting only a counterfeit $;t bill Stxamiini' Cai-xdojiis, Lott, hence sixty hours, for Liverpool, arrived at Halifax 1th mst, took on board nine auditional passengers and proceeded same day.

We also see from un'advertisement published | by Signor l'ahno, that a meeting of the friends of i the Opera will take place at the Opera House on ! Monday evening, at 8 o'clock, for the purpose of t filling up the subscription list. We have no doubt that there will be a full attendance on this occasion , of the real patrons ol the Opera throughout the i city. With such a beautiful Opera House, and all the ! "means and appliances" forsecuring the permanent < prosperity of the Opera umongst us, its friends aie ' left without excuse if they do not do tlieir duty.?

The incidents are I happily chosen and well adapted to make an impression on the mind This little work, published 1 by M. W. Dodd, New York, should be placed in j the hands of the whole juvenile community. j The Student at Paris ?A translation from the French, by E. C. Finn, Esq. Of this short sketch of the life of n Parisian student, will be read with 1 considerable pleasure by whoever likes a pleasant, ' and piquant and lively delineation ot a class or in- , dividual, placed in circumstances which are strong j and powerful enough to mould character and stamp it with quality not a pari of itself, but which appear to the world as if they were. G. C. Moore, 102 Nassau street. Faknham's Travels in the Great Western Prairies.?This is the first of a series of "useful works for the iicople," now being commenced by Greeley Sc McKlrath, of this city. We can only say that this book will repay perusal, nnd afford a fund of must amusing and entertaing narrative Until one reads this book, it is their impression that after the numerous sprightly volumes which have appeared, there could be little of novelty in a sketch of the "Far West." This work, however, will agreeably disappoint them, and convey, Ireah, new und vivid impressions of scenes rare and romantic. Immortalities and other Poems, by Alfred Wheeler.?This poetical effusiqn isa fair specimen of the talent of this country, with the exceptions, of coutse, of tlioae lew distinguished names who need not shrink from comparison with the lirst and and brightest of modern writers. Mr. Wheeler dedicates his book in a modest and concise manner to the "New York Society of Literature," under whose friendly auspices it should meet u favorable reception from all interested in the literary character of their country. It may fie had of Sax ton Ac Miles, 205 ilroadway. Catholic Family Bible.?The holy Bible, according to the Douay version, is now publishing in paits, under the sanction of Bishop llughes, at a price which puts it within the reach of all persons of the very large Catholic community here. The style of execution is faultless, and there are some fine engravings, which greatly enhance the beauty of this edition of the .Scriptures. NkwMwbic.?G. C. Christman, 404 Pearl street, has lately brought out many ratities forthe musical world. We have been favored with a glance ot some of them, and would recommend those who would like to have an early selection of what is new and good, to call at 404 Pearl street. Boarding IIottsks.?A number of widow ladies of this city conceive they have just cause of complaint against several merchants and other men in good circumstances, who keep boarding houses to their very serious injury. Having held a meeting for the purpose of entering into a protest against such encroachment of their rights and privileges, it was further resolved they would respectfully solicit the assistance of all gallant voting gentlemen downtown, in their strenuous efforts to put down all such attempts to inter t< re with their peculiar line of business, which they flatter themselves they understand perfectly They will jti-t simply ask how it would look foi my of them to lake stores in South or Front street, orcounting rooms in Wall street, which they wi! assuredly be under the neeessily of doing in cast of continued opposition to them.
