VKW YORK HERALD. Hew Yark, Krldajr, April 10 1844. AH RIVAL OF THE ~~ STEAMSHIP ACADIA. Half a Month Later. This steamer was out fourteen day* yesterday noon, and probably arrived at Boston before night. She will bring only half a month later intelligence from Europe, having been dished out of a few days news by the arrival ol the St. Nicholas yesterday afternoon and the Sheridan, the other day. We beg leave to assure the public, that we <!o not mean to have any Bsiloov Ksmkss from Boston, on the arrival of the steamer. We leave such an enterprise entirely to our cotemnorury of the \rw York Sun, who will issue an Extra immediately on the arrival of his balloon, and although he will forget to stick in the jirices of cotton, he will take care to stick it into the rascally newsboys. The Newspaper War of the New York Press against the New York Herald. For several months past, and particularly since our return from Europe, we have been expecting a fresh eruption of the newspaper press of this city against the JVirw York Herald, on some pretence or another. The progress we have made during the 1 ust few months in various matters connected with public affairs?the energy with which our establishment has been conducted in all its departments ?the numerous humiliating " beats" which we have given our cotemporaries. in all matters of euterpris<?have certainly been sufficient reasons for our rivals to hate us with a perfect hatred, and to grasp with all the frenzied eagerness of jealousy and revenge at every straw, which, to their bloodshot vision, might present the means of impeding that progress and setting bounds to that enterprise. For five or six years this war has raged with more or less fury?now smouldering in the ashes of defeat?and anon fanned into afresh and more hissing blaze, assume evidence of our triumphant progress, more striking and convincing than that which had gone before, presented itself to the public eye, and brought to us, the reward of successful enterprise anil labor. At one time, the war has been conducted with all the agonized energy of despair, and at anodier with all the impotent absurdity of farce. The last onslaught has been so completely farcical?so supremely ridiculous?so amusingly insignificant, that we think, before we get through with the campaign,we will wring out of it materials enough for a dozen reasonably lengthened farces, equal to any that ever emanated from the pen o< Planche. Instead of mounting the big war-horse of the "moral wars" ot former years, our highly respectable cotemporaries have caught a stray donkey, and bestriding him, come forth to the world, armed and accoutred like Pantaloon, or a "mock chevalier," determined to destroy and put down for ever the New York Herald. The personage who has thus borne our antagonists into the lists, is Ilenry Wikoffby name, and during the last few days the New York press have given to the world some ot his precious revelations connected with Fanny Elssler, and various other parties, for all which we shall make the prieux chevalier most sincerely repentant before we have done with him. We iiave, as we have already stated, been preparing a full account of Fanny Elssler's career in this country, illustrated by the letters, and documenls, and papers, of this self-same Chevalier Wikoff; but as there are still some papers remaining, for which we are searching, these delightful memoirs, and still more delectable snatches of autobiography, must be delayed for a few days longer. In the meantime, we have a few words to say in reference to un article which we find in the Erpreet, purporting to be extracts from a recent revelation made by this chevalier, whose business appears to be to pry into the wardrobe of females, and inspect the contents of a lady's dressing case?a business which, it is to bo presumed, must be admirably consistent with the quality of his honor, and the range of his capacious intellect. Here are the extracts from the Exprea, and we believe they have been endorsed also by that finished gentleman, industrious editor, and incorruptible patriot?Mr. Charles King of the American :? But to continue. He say* he saw Kanny Klssler in London last summer. It is true-, hut only to levy more "hlaok mail" upon her. Both he and his wife repeatedly called on her, and their visits were most anxiously avoid u<l l>y Milt1. lUMiar, soiar ai ner womanon lerror 01 huh man's well kn?wn malignity allowed; but their object was to obtain from her boxes at the Italian Opera, and though they were selling at six and seven guineas, and for which Mile. Klsslor was obliged to make comjiensa tion, they exacted them from her every night of their statin London. They were very anxious to associate with Mile F.lssler, and begged her to dine with them at their hotel, but she leclined pointedly the honor. * * * I will add another fact in illustration of his system. I took pains to induce Mr. Macready to call on Bennett, in London, hoping to preserve this distinguished tragedian from bis scurrility With great reluctance Mr. Macready ilid so. and Bennett, having a prospect of "black mail" dawning upon liim. wrote instantly to his men here, whom he treats as serfs, without consciences, to "puff Macready!" Hearing a few days afterwards that the tragedian had given a party to some d stinguished friends, and not invited him or wife, he directly wrote again to his friend "to stop the puffs;" and since then he has annoyed this gentleman as much as he could. I will prove this by his bookeeper, and others. HF.NRY WIKOKK. We shall dispose of these mutters very easily, and in the order in which they are mentioned And first, ol the dinner to which we invited Fanny lilssler at Ling's Hotel in London, and which she declined. Now, it appears that this very dinner was suggested to us by this very Chevalier Wikofl, and pressed again and again by him?why 1 Why in order to furnish him with an opportunity of reinstating himself in the good graces of Md'lle. Fanny ! He had offended her very much soon after Ins return to Europe, nnd as soon as lie discovered that we were at Long's Hotel, which was fortyeight hours after our arrival, he made his npjiearance, and day after day his visits were repealed, Ins continual object heing the discovery of some mode hy which he could regain the favor i>t Md'lle. Fanny, and the invitation to dine with us, was the plan which he suggested Well, without any disposition to disoblige any person, and thinking there was no great harm in the matter, Md'lle Fanny was, we believe, invited to a dinner, and accepted the invitation, hut when she found that her former Gheva. her was also to be H guest, she declined, politely assigning as an apology, the extreme fatigue of getting up some new ojs-ru. Fanny frequently expressed in conversation her opinion of the Chevalier. by the laconic, but sufficiently significant phrase? " 11 *'s a mean man"?to which her cousin added with more emphasis?"Wikofl is a very mean man, indeed." 1 believe that on the very day on which Kanny was invited to this dinner Mrs. 11. and 1 had received an invitation to dine with Mr. Mac' iregor the Secretary of the Board of Trade in London, and in order to gratify the desire of the Chevalier, Mrs. B. was persuaded to decline that invitation, leaving me to go, which I did, and found, as the guests of Mr. Mac'rregor, several members of Parliament, and gentlemen from the United States.? Mr. MacGregor, we may add, is one of the most eminent political economists in great Britain, and the author of the tariff law introduced hy Sir Robert Peel. This is the whole story about that famous dinner. Ridiculous gossip, to be sure, yet forming ilie gravamen of the charge of black mail urged hy the gentlemanly editors of New York against us. Still, as the whole story is laughable enough?and besides putting the Chevalier in the proper position, affords the public another sample of the "facts" on wh'ch our rivals attempt to destroy our reputation?we have thought proper to give it. Then, again, with regard to the boxes at the Italian < >pera. To this charge, we plead guilty. We did receive boxes for the Italian Opera during the lew days we remained in London, although not for "every night." Fanny Elssler out of her own promptings, sent them without any request on our part. But what is still more interesting in the case, is the fact that this very Chevalier availed hiiusell s??i- -?-?-??-e?F? of i oral in that boi on every occasion that t"' could, and il was on one ot ihese occasions that he was first introduced to Duff Green, connected - with whom we have yet a very amusing story to give. Hut to show the folly of thus attempting out of an opera box to manuiacturv gross charges against us, and to show also that we regarded the thing just as it was intended, a mere compliment, it is only necessary to say, that as soon as it was I known that we had arrived in London, we had free admission to several of the theatres. Madame Celeste was at the Haymarket, and she, as well as the manager ol lhat theatre, sent IIS free ?<lmissinns. without uny solicitation Tickets were sent us Iront the Surry theatre, and if we recollect aright, the manager of the Princes' theatre, although to hint we were i>ersonally unknown, sent us a free ticket daring our stay inLondon. And Mr.Maywood, of the Strand, did the same, as 1 find in the following polite note which 1 still retain:? Strand Theatre, Aug. lit ! My Dear Sir,? It was only yesterday alter noon that I wa* aware of' your being in London; tint I have seized the first moment to pay my respects, and allow me to say that there is a private box in my little baud box at your own and Mrs. Bennett's service, whenever you may please to honor us with your presence. Vour name is u passport; and, with ; respectful regards to Mrs Bennett, I remain, Yours, most truly, ROBT CAMPBELL MAYWOOD. J. (iohiion Bennett, Esq. So much for this species of black mail. Then, with resjwct to Mr. Macreudy and his dinner. This, I think, is the funniest piece of impudence of nil. During our stay in London the Chevalier Wikoff was at our hotel almost every day, proposing this, suggesting that, and offering his opinion on some other tilings in relation to various small affairs. Amongst other things, he proposed to me one day that I should call on Mr. Macready, whose intended tour in this country had been then announced. I replied that 1 did not see the necessity of my calling on that gentleman, and that I would rather decline doing so. Wikoff repeatedly urged me to do so, however, afterwards, but I invariably declined. At last this Chevalier inlormed me that Mr. Macreadv intended calling upon me at two o'clock on a certain day which he designated. Of course I expressed my willingness to see Mr. Macready if he called upon me, and to communicate any information which lie might desire, and which it was in my power to anord, respecting the state ot theatricals in the United States. Accordingly, on the next day, I think it was, Mr.Macready, in company witli the Chevalier, called upon me. After being introduced, Mr. Macready entered into conversation wi'h me respecting his intended theatrical tour in the United States, inquiring into the state and prospects of the country, what the theatres were doing, and the general prosperity of that department of the drama with which he was connected. I stated in reply that the legitimate drama, owing partly to a change in the public taste and the deranged financial condition of the country, was then in a low state; but still, that as there was no representative of the high order of the drama, except Mr. Forrest, who wns not a novelty, as he had forseveral years been nil over the country, and as the business prospects of the country were reviving, I thought there was a very favorable opportunity offered to Mr. Macready. Mr. Macready expressed great grutifi cation at receiving this intelligence, and after some unimportant remarks, he took his leave. This wus the first and only occasion in which I have seen Mr. Macready in private. Soon after this inter" view, I left London, on a visit to Ireland and Scotland. On my return to London, on our way to Paris, the Chevalier called at our Hotel in his usual style, talking, fawning, flattering, fiddling and cottoning, lie stated that he had learned from a lady of his acquaintance, that Mr. Macready had sent out invitations to a farewell-dinner party or soiree, and that he (Wikofl) was very much surprised that he had not received one, adding that Mr. Macready ought certainly to have included Mrs. B. and my- , self, as he had understood that it was so intended before we left for Scotland. I replied that it was a matter of no consequence whatever. That if we had received an invitation, it was probable that it could not have been accepted, as we had made arrangements to leave for Paris in a day or two. Notwithstanding this reply, Wikoff continued to harp on the neglect which had been put upon him by not receiving au invitation, and assigning as the probable reason, the influence of the coterie which formed the society of Mr. Macready, and which, as he had understood,wascomposed chiefly of Dickens and other literary men connected with the Foreign Quarterly and other jieriodicals in London. This connection, Wikoff said, might, if it were known, affect Mr. Macready's success in the United States?thus evidently suggesting an attack on that gentleman. And here, finding that Wikoff was thus disposed towards Mr. Macready, and aware that he was in correspondence with the office of the Herald, and might write something prejudicial to Mr. Macready, I wrote immediately to those whom I had left in charge of the paper in nty absence, to refrain from saying anything farther about Mr. Macraady until my return to the United States. This is the whole story, and all the facts. It shows, as in a mirror, the meanness of this creature,WikofI, who falsely attributes to me thepetty, sneaking maliciousness which be himseh niaiiifes.ed,because,forsooth,Mr.Mucready did not invite him to his dinner. As to the treatment which Mr. Macready has received from this journal, its columns afford the evidence that it has been just and honorable, before und since his arrival in the United States. It will thus be seen of what flimsy and ridiculous materials our respectable cotemporaries are endeavoring to elaborate the proof of crimes, by whose allegation they ho|>e to injure our reputation and popularity. But it is all in vain. We defy them to put their finger upon one solitary act, in a lile of twenty-five years, that they can, even by implicit tion, construct into the levying of black mail as they eall it. The absurdities and ludicrous misrepresentations of this donkey?for the harmless creature, Wikoff, does not deserve a harsher name?will only cover them witli more contempt than ever has any thing they have attempted. In it few days we shall be ready with our full exposion of the career of Fanny Klssler in this country, and it it do not satisfy the highly respectable and honorable New York editors, of the character and reputation of their witness, their Chevalier, or their donkey, just us they please?why, then we will, forever after, religiously believe that a donkey Iihh more wisdom than King Solomon, and that in spite of all Fanny Klssler may say to the contrary, " a "mock chevalier" is not "a mean man?a vtry mean man indeed."

An old fellow by the name of Ovid, as every hoarding-Be hsol miss, and downy-cheeked lad knows, wrote a good many centuries ago a very philosophical treatise whicll he called the "Art ot Love."

I he mantle has fallen upon another, and " Mr .lenyns" lias taken Up the subject. Mr. .fi?nynn H o'clock pxsictly, delivered a lecture on " Love," and it is not without some little regret that, as the discourse was intended for the benefit of the whole world, (which has so long been "going round" and whirling about, and skipping upside down with this " Love,") the whole world did not attend. The lecture was so profound, philosophical, poctical, inspiring, metaphysical, qur/.7.ical. pathetic, and indescribably affecting, that we can't for Ihe life of us report a single paragraph. As. however, it is to be repeated, we may next time give some passages of it to immortality. As for fenyns, himself, lie is a perfect Adonis. Six feet high?graceful and robust?an eye " like Mars to threaten and command" and a moustache which beats Doctor Van Cort's all to pieces, Jenyns is just the man to lecture on " Love." and . draw audiences ol the " dear sex" as overflowing and as angelic as the most comely young "revival" preacher from Dan to Reersheba.

Ab.jhiioi ( a?i?The Coroners investigation into the cause ol the death of Ann Klizu M union, late ol New iluven, by abortion, produced at the house ot Mrs. Bird. 18 Oliver street, on Sunday last, wus continued last tve. ning. We present below all the testimony ol interest ? The first u itness called was ? (ikkshou Fstist, who deposed as follows 1 reside at I'lainfleld, New Jersey; I was twenty-five the j&th of last January; am a hatter by trade; I ani a brother of James Krazee; I never taw Kliza Ann Munaon, tlie deceased, until ultout live or six weeks ago; she was in New York; I was shown to the house where she was by my cousin Randolph L Primrose; 1 do not know the street nor the name of the person where she lived; I was introduced to her and have never seen her but once since; that wns the next morning; I went to see her at the request of loine friend; I understood that she was coming out to i'iainfield to my fdthei's bouse, and as my mother diil not know any thing about her, I was advised by Primrose to come in ami see her; 1 know nothing about any intercourse between herBtid my brother James; whenl first saw deceased, five or six weeks ago, she told me she was pregnant by my brother; I asked her if she was ever in that situation before; she said she had had a child four years before, whicii had lived until it was seven months old; I told her I thought the best way was to lock them both up; she then said she was in that way and she was determined to get rid of it; she wanted me to go with her to Mrs. Bird's to have an aboition procured, or to seethut she got there; I told her that I should not do it, as I believed it was a state prison act to go to a house of that kind; she said she had lost hercharacter three or four years ago by having a child, und she would rather die than be caught in that situation again; she had been tempted to make way with herself at that time, and also before I saw her; when I went to see her the next morning she appeared to he determined to go, and I told her she would go on her own risk; she also said she wished to see my brother James anil I told her she could not; 1 think I told my brother, after tny return, a part of the conversation between the deceased and myself; I do not know that my brother sent money to deceased after this conversation; 1 think I have heard my brother say that some money was paid in this city for liirn. t4.?Did yon pay any money yourself? A.?I decline answering, as it muy implicate myself. Q.?To whom was it paid, and how much was the su"s? A.? I won't tell. My brother ,s now in Newark; he was here the first night this couit met; he is a silver plater, and has recently setup business lor himself nt Newark; he is about 3'J years ol age, and unmarried; he denies that he ever agreed to marry deceased; he admitted that lie had hail illicit intercourse with deceased at New Haven, while she lived there in the same house; he said she said she was pregnant by him; 1 saw him this morning. Croas-rTuminul by JordaX for ilrfencc?The deceased was in apparent good health when i saw her here in this city, aliout five weeks since. By Ji*ror ?Q?We should like to know whether decensed or your brother ever said any thintr aliout any previous abortion produced in Norcmtier >r December last > Mr. Jordan objected, as the question referred to her situation long previous to her decease, and was, therefore, Irrelevant anil he advised the witness net to answer it. The Coroner admitted tho question and the witness declined to answer it. Q?Did you see thesleeeased in New York in December last, or did she tell you she was here 7 A?I refuse to answer. Phillips?If the vtjtness refuses to answer the question, I shall move for his commitment. Jordan?The witness is to tie the sole judge of that matter,and if hu thinks it will implicate himself, he should not answer Ji ror ?i think that Mr. Jordan hud better be called on the stand as a witness. riiiLi.ips?The jurors must confine their remarks to the witness. Coroner?I shall be compelled to kepp order here, pre sently, gentlemen. Phillips?Mr. Porter is here, I poiceive; let the witness advise with him. Porter?1 should advise witness not to answer the question. Witness?i decline answering, as it may implicate myself. [Notwithstanding that the testimony from tho commencement of this investigation has shown most conclusively that James Frazee, the seducer of the decesscd girl, was the active agent in producing the abortion at Mrs. Bird's yet Coroner Kawson hod taken no measures to procure his arrest up to the close of tho examination last evening, although his brother testifies that he was at Newark yesterday ] Dr John C. Peters called and sworn?I am n physician and reside at 66!) Broadway; I made n post mortem examination of deceased. l)rs Oilman and Archer were present at a jiorrion of the examination?there were no marks of external violence on the body, nor appearance of disease upon the brain or its membranes, except that they were unusually blanched, and an effusion of half an ounce ol clear serum at tho base of tho brain; there were no signs of old or recent disease of the lungs; the heart,was healthy the liver was enlarged, and adherent to the walla of the abdomen, and its texture pale and soft; otherwise health;'; the twhole substance of the stomach was blanched ; the large intestines were very much extended, and in a state of chronic inflammation?an abscess was discovered hjr Dr. Oilman, between tho rectum and uterus, that contained half a pint of puss, the uterus was enlarged to nearly twice its natural size?the small intestines wero attached to the uterus and detached with difficulty- then, was no mark of injury about the uterus?the general conclusions form appearanceswere that she had been recently pregnant?the blanched appearance of the brain and intertines must have been caused by loss of blood by hermorrliage orfrom chronic disease?some of the adhesions of the intestines may have been produced by inflammation ol from two to lonr weeks standing ; any inflammation ol the intestines would produce this result even if not connected with the affection of the uterus?tlie adhesions of the liver appeared to he of from two to four weekR stand nig?hii me appearances 01 uin imesnnes are common in recent cases of inflammation of the peritoneum ; the abscess inav have been caused by recent inflammation, or may have been of long standing ; it may have been caused by abortion or by various diseases of the body ; she had been recently delivered of a foetus, but whether natural or by violence, I could not say ; if the abortion had been produced in December the point of attachment of the pla centa would have presented a different appearance ; I think an abortion had lieen produced about four weeks before her death. The operation of abortion, skilfully performed,[would leave no marks of violence upon the uterus The abscess was not the cause of her death, although it may have hastened it. Q?From the observation of the post mortem examination, what is your opinion as to the immediate cause of the death of deceased ? A?There were many evidences of the loss of blood which may have followed an abortion recently produced ; that with the ptritonrttu, or affection of the bowels, I he lieve to have been the immediate cause of her death. I think hie loss of blood by haemorrhage was ai a recent period. The testimony of Dr Peters, who is a young man, was given in a clear and concise manner?evincing uncommon skill and study, on his part, in the mystery of the human frame. The jury retired at 2 o'clock and remained out until half past It, when they came in and returned the follow ing verdict: ? "That Eliza Ann Munson's illness was caused by injuries arising from an abortion produced by violent meanr upon her person, by Margaret Dawson, alias Mrs. Iliid, and by subsequent neglect, to which Frances Rowing was accessory after the fact at least, and that during the investigation,the said Eliza Ann Munson died thereof." lonas B Phillips.

Specie hat lately gone from tho North to the South in large quantities Several impotta tious of specie have taken place at New (?rlean?, direct from Europe. This goes to that section to purchase cot ton. Instead of shipping cotton from tho South to F.uropot and drawing hilli of exchange on it, and sending them North for sale, the greater pai t of the business now is made a cash operation; and the supply of bills is consequently, small. This is one cause of the present high rates for exchanges. Another cause is, the small quantity of cotton shipped, compared with previous years. This reduces the balance of trade in our favor, aud curtails credits abroad. Another cause of the high quotations, is tho speculation going on in hills among the brokers. Several houses have made efforts to monopolise, the business, and control prices. Domestic exchanges are not so fluctuating as foreign, either in price or demand. As business improves, they will still become more equalised thsu they are at present. The ruling quotations aro very much reduced on most points, but there are still places left on which the rates are very high.
