We shall issue an Extka Hkbai.d in one hour alter we receive our packages. Tike Grand Whig Nomination* at last?Henry Clay and Theodore Frellnghuysen. We received yesterday afternoon by an express from Baltimore, which left that city at 7 o'clock on the previous evening, the proceedings of the greatWhig Convention, held there for the notninaifation of the candidates for the Presidency and Vica-Presidency. The whole of the proceeedings were brief and to the purpose, resulting in the nomination of Ilenry Cluy, of Kentucky, for the Presidency, and of Theodore Frelinghnysen, of New Jersey, or New York, for the Vice-Presidency.? We published them in our evening edition, and circulated them all over the eastern and northern part of the Union by the afternoon mails. So?the whig party are now armed and accoutred according to law, and in the field with Clay and Frelinghuysen. The other Convention of the Young Men to be held on the day after at Baltimore is merely a re-echo?more noisy, and more boisterous, and more rowdy, perhaps, than the regular Nominating Convention; but all must now go to work like men, and do the best they can for their candidates. Of Henry Clay, there is no necessity to speak a word. He is known not only in this country, but to the uttermost ends of the earth, and a few miles further. Of Theodore Frelinghuysen, little is known beyond the limits of New Jersey and the upper end of the city of New York, round about Washington Square. Mr. Frelinghuysen has been a resident of this city for several years past? is a citizen of New York, hails from New York, and has taken an active part in a variety ol movements here in relation to slavery, abolition, morals, religion, learning, and Heaven knows " 1'?* ..Kit, wnai. .vir. r reimgiiuysru ib an uu iu-u?i litionist, or at least he lias been, and we suppose he still adheres to the same faith. In this respect, therefore, his connection with Mr. Clay may go far to snfien down the asperities of the abolitionists in the free States, but it will certainly injure Mr. Clay in the Southern States to a very considerable extent. In other respects, Mr. Frelinghuysen is u very respectable, moral and talented man, though somewhat dull and heavy. However, he will make a capital Vice President, if he succeeds in getting the abolition vote, and dodging the opposition of the Southern States. Thus, then, the whig party are in the field, und we may now expect a pretty h< t campaign. Next Monday is, we |>erceive, selected for the great mass confirmation of these nominations by the whigs of this city, and no doubt there will be a tremendous gathering of the clans. The excitement which has commenced at Baltimore will spread all over the country, and the songs, the noise, the hurras, the speechifying will be heard from one end of the Union to the other, beyond anything that wus ever seen in 1840. "We never saw such a spirit of enthusiasm as now exists amongst the whigs in favor of Henry Clav, and if not elected President, in opposition |to all "ther candidates, then we must say that v.'e don't -flow a hawk from a hand-saw. Now, therefore, that the Whigs ate in the field with their candidates and colors flying at the mast head, we naturally look towards the Democrats and their approaching Convention at Baltimore, in order to see what they are about to do. And here, we are sorry to say, we find a great deal of trouble, of difficulty and commotion. The election in Virginia has, it appears, thrown a wet blanket over the hopes of many of Van Buren's supporters in Washington ; and we have it from good authority at the Capitol, ttiat Ritchie, of the Richmond Enquirer, has absolutely written to Col. Chapman, of Virginia, that Mr. Van Buren must withdraw, aud the party cast about for a stronger man; and all in consequence of the Virginia election. Now we don't believe at all in this doctrine. Notwithstanding all that is said about the withdrawal of Mr. Van Buren, we con'a' oa u/i> nan nriHnret a ml that with. drawal of Mr. Van Buren would be the breaking up of every opposition to Mr. Clay. But we will wait until we see the result of that most curious, most strange, and most exciting convention that the democrats are going to hold at Baltimore on the 27th of this month?a convention that will have a devilish sight more confusion to meet than the whirs, who go through their work very snugly and easily. Indeed, to use the common phrase respecting a certain and important event in human life?they " have had a very good time of it." Annexation of Texas.?A large and enthusiastic assemblage of citizens in favor of the annexation of Texas, was convened last evening at Hermitage Hall, Houston street, at which spirited resolutions were adopted, and a committee appointed to unite with that already organized in favor ot holding a general meeting on the subject at the Tabernacle. The proceedings will be published tomorrow. __________ Progress of Fourierism.?Two rather amusing statements respecting the progress of the "Sylvania Association," some twelve months since esta1.1..1 i die ... [>.. i - - ..i 1'iinwu in i iivr uuuiiij, x a., uiiuci uic uurtiiuii wi apostles Brisbans and Greeley. One statement appears in the organ of this new sect, the New York Trilmnt, and represents the association hs in a moat flourishing condition. The soil is, it seems, a strong loam, although a little stony, and there is a magnificent water power on the premises, on which a saw mill and grist mill have been erected. Accordi ng to the Tribune, all has been prosperous and happy in this elysium. Rut a country paper?the YVayne County Herald ?tells a very different story. It is published a few miles from "Sylvania," and informs us that during the last year the Fourientes had nothing to eat but potatoes, and that the unfortunate creatures were in the habit of collecting together, and to the inspiring music of an old fiddle, tripped it on the light I infastic toe, in the laudable endeavor to forget the horrors of starvation In truth, this system of humbug will soon work out its own annihilation. Important prom Hayti.?We learn from Capt. Small, of the Sarah Jane, from St. Domingo, that General Riviere had retreated from the city of St. Domingo with his army, and had gone to Port au Prince. No battles had been fought, and the government army were breaking to pieces. All was in doubt and confusion. Late prom South America.?The Ganges, Captain Eytinge, arrived yeiterday in 47 days from Rio Grande. It was reported there that President Rivera had entered the city of Monte Video with supplies. Also, that merchants were failing daily ?every thing dull?no freights but hides.worth 1<H at the river. Steam Ship Acadia.?The Acadia, Capt. Ryric, left Boston for Halifax and Liver)>ool on Wednesday. She had eighty-four passengers for Liverpool and nine of Halifax. The mail bags contained up wards of thirty thousand letters, and several tons <d New York Heralds and other newspapers The Great Meeting la Favor of the Annexation of Texas. There apj?ears to be a good deal of dilliculty about getting up the meeting in lavor of the annex, ation of Texas in this city. A committee of Tyler men, forming the appendix to the Tyler Convention, have been very busy iu the mutter, but seem to labor under much doubt as to the best mode ot procedure. At first the meeting was called forThu reday of tliis week, but in order to give it a broader und deeper foundation, it was postponed till Monday next It now appeals, however, that the whigs have been called together, in of the Clay clul a, lor u great assemblage in the Park oil Moilday afternoon, and, of course, the Tyler and Texus nten must seek some other day to make their grand display. Accordingly we find, that after backing and tilling several times, the meeting lias been unalterably fixed tor Saturday (to-morrow) at 5 o'clock in the afternoon, in the Park, when the prodigioua demonstration is to be made in favor of annexing Texas immediately to this country. We need not repeat what our opinion- is on this matter. We are in favor of the annexation of Texas at all risks and at any hazard. We are in favor of its annexation to-day, to-morrow, or next day, or as soon as possible. We are in favor not only of the annexation of Texus, but of the whole of this continent, including the Canadas and Mexico, Oregon, and all down to the North Pole, and up to jhe Isthmus of Darien. When we look upon the principle of annexation?there is no use in mincing matters about it?we at once see that we may as well annex the whole continentjat once inimagina| Hon or in prospective, as be quarrelling about mere [ boundaries wmcn exist oniy in ciiaris. wewum Mexico and the whole of this continent, because the Anglo-Haxon race of this country, want to show the world the model of a republic, the like of which has never before entered into the imagination of man to conceive. Within the boundaries of such a republic, from the Isthmus of Darien down to the North Pole, all climates, and all productions would be embraced?they would embrace all sources and descriptions of agricultural, commercial and mineral wealth. We want to possess the gold and silver mines of Mexico, in order to have a basis for our currency ; and we want the whole country, from the two great oceans?the Atlantic and the Pacific?in order to provide for the millions and millions of that population which is destined to grow up within our borders. We perceive that this grand, magnificent, and very natural idea has excited the attention even of the philosophers ot the National Intelligencer at Washington; but they have taken notice of it only to cast ridicule upon it, and to reason men out of yielding to its influence. Now, let us tell these philosophic statesmen at Washington, and all the people also in that little capital, that they want the capacious mind, and the opportunities of accurate observation possessed by the editors who are stationed in the great intellectual observatories of this mighty metropolis, from which they can survey the whole land, and see, in the future, the political capital of this new republic, somewhere in the Mississippi valley. This much for the general question. On the immediate question, which brings forth the public meeting to-morrow, our sentiments are likewise well known. But we doubt much whether a great popular demonstration can be drawn forth in consequence of its being connected with Captain John Tyler, and John Jones, who happen to be not exactly the most popular of personages in this city.? 11*- i J _ii ia T?L? we nave uune an we uuuiu iu muivn v>n|>iaiu ? a great man here. We have made efforts on ellort to convince the people that he is an intellectual Colossus. But all the return we have got for our disinterested efforts has been a broad "ha! ha ! ha!" We succeeded, as it will be seen, in convincing the country that Fanny Elssler was the greatest danmm that ever appeared here, lint on the subject of Captain Tyler, we admit that our efforts have resulted in total failure. In consequence, therefore, of the connection of Tyler with Texas, it is very probable that the meeting on Saturday will assume a two-fold, curious I and original character. There will be the real triends of Texas, and we have no doubt that the bulk of this community, disconnected with stockjobbing operations, and possessing the bold spirit of the young democracy of this great continent, are all in favor of the annexation of Texas, anc not only of that, but the whole of the continent not yet embraced within the arms of the Union. We are prepared, therefore, to see some interesting work on Saturday afternoon, and so shall take care to give a full account of it in our paper next morning. Interesting from St. Thomas.?It is reporter by Capt. Rabbadge, of the Hecla, arrived yester day from St. Croix and St. Thomas, that a tremen uvus nan piuiui uau yisiicu uir imuici juaur, nut an earthquake the latter place. The hail stortr was of serious injury to the country. It was not as certained what damage the earthquake had done Theatricals.?A project is on foot to establisl a great metropolitan theatre in this city. Wehavi heard a great deal said about this for some timi past. No doubt this would be a very favorabli time to start an enterprize of that kind, if a persoi could be discovered capable of giving a great im pulse to such an establishment. Macready will soon be here and play again a the Park, and Forrest after him. These great tra gedians have been following on each other's heeli all over the South and West, no doubt to theirmu tual advantage. Mr. Wallack?t/ie Wallack? arrived here the da] before yesterday from Boston, where he had con eluded a most profitable engagement. On the nigh of his benefit, he had one of the most splendii houses ever seen in Boston, and at least five hun dred of the most fasjiionable ladies in Boston wit nessed his most admirable performance in the aha racter of Kover. Mr. Wallack proposes to giv a novel und unique dramatic lectare and olio here including songs, recitations, anecdotes, and criti cisms. This will be a most attractive thing, am must draw great audiences, if a suitable place car I be got. Palmo's opera house, on the off nights, would do very well. The Apollo Saloon, or Washington Hall, would also answer very well. MnsicAL, tfec.?Ole Bull has gone to Savannah. He has been very successful in Charleston. Vieux Temps is to be in Baltimore during the Convention week. There is now more music ir that city than was ever known before. The Orphean family are giving concerts in New ark. They have met with much favor. Macready continues at the west. Mrs. Bailey is in Baltimore. Kleoant Fancy Stofk.?One of the most nisg .nficent fancy stores we have ever seen is the well I known establishment of Tiffany Ac Young, u Broadway. Their collection of bijouterie and al sorts of light, elegant fancy articles, is varied rreherrhi and attractive in the extreme. It is a de lightful place for a lounger one of these fine fore noons, when Broadway is all radiant with beaut; and fashion. A Savage Dog.?Mr. Hardy, a highly respecta ble citizen, m calling at a house in Lispenard stree yesterday, was attacked by a large Newfoundlani dog, and very badly lacerated. All such dogi should be kept tied up. Vegetation.?In consequence of the warm wen ther, vegetation is springing up too rapidly " bj half." It is feared the crops will run to little o nothing. Races.?Three and perhaps four raceH will comi off over the Union Course, on Tuesday next, th> 7th?three or more entries for each tace. As al the northern stables will be on the ground, fine spot may be expected Nettiodlit (episcopal Church Conference. The session wag openedjesterday at half past eight o'clock, P.M., in the ftreen street Chapel Divine service having been performed, the Secretary resumed busrnoM by reading "the list of delegates, ot whom a very large number answered lo their names ; the absentees did not aiiiounito more than hall u dozen. The minutes of the previous dny'sproceedings were then read, as also the names of those composing the several committees organized on Wednesday. They are each composed of a member from the several annual conferences, and for the following specific purposes:? A l onmiifti-i' nn ( '.duration. " Episcopacy. " Missions. " Temperance. " Itinerancy " Sunday Schools. " Bible cause. " I'opiry " Expenses of Delegates. " Book (Concerns A committee to be composed of the editors of the different Methodist periodicals to attend to the publication of the minutes of conference, and to employ an efficient and trustworthy re|?rter to that end Amotion was made for the exclusion of reporters, and lost. The President next called the attention of the Conference to the publication of the minutes. A discussion arose on the exjiediency of publishing some four or live hundred copies; the lost was considered the number most proper. Various amendments were put?one that the oil!cial acts of last conlereuce should he embodied as a guideto their proceedings. At this stage of the meeting, a resolution was put and carried that all persons not delegates to, or officers of that conference, should be excluded during the delivery of the President's address, and the sexton proceeded to see the will oi the house carried into effect by barring the doors. On our return, the president had finished his address, and the secretary was reading a series of resolutions, defining the functions of the several committees, bo. The first resolution wo understood to refer to the publication of the president's address, and recommending that 1000 copies should be printed. A member maved an amendment that the resolution ' should be placed, at present, on the table ; but was not | seconded. Another was proposed, that the number of copies should he 10,000. A delegate thought that as conference had made pro- i vision for publishing its proceedings, it would be better to vmbodv the address witn the rest. If 10,000 were pub lishcd'it would have to be excluded lrom the minutes. A suggestion was made that it should be published in the form of a Christian Advocate Extra, in order to save postage ; not for sake of defrauding the post office, but to I study the interest and save the money of themselves and ( fi iends. The matter was finally disposed of, by referring it to the committee of publication, with orders to have it published. The second resolution, recommending "that fo much of the business as related to an increase of the numbers of bishops, and defining the number and boundaries of districts, circuits and stations, be referred to the committee on Episcopacy." Adopted. The third resolution was readResolved, That so much us relates to the time of probation among travelling preachers, and so much as relates to the time they should be continued in the same city, and so much as relates to their retarn to the same district, circuit or station, be referred to the committee on itinerancy. Mr. thought it would be better to infer it to a select committee. Mr. Kixi.ay was desirous of recognizing as much of the president's address as related to elders aswell as preachers. Mr, Bath* thought it would require a separate committee. He moved that it be accordingly referred to a committee hereafter to be named. The Prksiui:nt announced that the resolution was moved and seconded, and was about to put the question, when? Mr Bangs moved that the whole subject might he laid on the table, in order to apt>oint preachers to preach, and make arrangements for dinner served during their sittings lie moved that the preaching elders of New York, Island and New Jersey districts be that committee Mr. Hick. objected to ti e motion. The time it would require to fulfil those duties would amount to fin exclusion from the conference. He thought it would be too much for those individuals, lie would like to be present at their proceedings-, for although there were some things said which he did not care for hearing, (a Ungh) there were others he would like to hear. Another member looked upon the three named persons as fully adequate to the task, allowing them to call in the aid of others to assist them. He moved an amendment that the said eldors should be the committee, calling in others to their aid Passed. A motion was then made to proceed with the resolutions, which was lost. Mr. Laino moved that thoy should proceed to fill up the standing committees The President said it was unnecessary to put the motion, as there was already a provision for that purpose. The Secretary next proceeded to call over the names ol those composing the committees. Those on Itinerancy, . Episcopacy, Boundaries and Missions, being finished, the hour ol adjournment had arrived. On motion to lengthen the time of the session for the purpose of disposing of the remaining resolutions, the question was put and lost by 4f> agiin: t 94. Dinner carried the day, and the Conference adjourned till to morrow. A detultery conversation succeeded between the members of the committee with reference to the time, place, and other arrangements connected with their proceedings, which will fully occupy ' the afternoon of each day's session Tiik English Opera.?There was not so good it house lust night >tt the Park ns on the previous nights of the l^egnins' performance, although it war pretty lair considering the threatening aspect of the weather in the early part of the evening We no' ticed the beautiful Borgltese, Valtellina, Antognini, and Sanquirico, in one of the boxes. la Sonnttm' bu/n was the opera, and the Seguins sustained their 1 parts with remarkable spirit.

Italian Opera?Nj:w Movements.?We understand that Palmo has just made a new arrangement with Valteliinu, who has ut cuine to hii; aetitee?tiiat paperj have been drawn up between then), and that probably he will assume his original position in the Italian 0(?era during the court-e of next week. The last two nights ot the Opera hav<- been remarkably well intended, and probably it will continue so during tne week Next week we will have selections from I Puritani anJ t.wia di Lammtrmoor, in which Valtelliiui will make Ins app-arance in his original characters; anil ufter that, we shall haveJji Soixiiambulu, in which he will also take a part. We are very glad to see unity restored to this company, and w ith Valteliina to manage o[?era uria, and De Begilis as the manager of opera bujfn, we have no doubt all will go on charmingly. A great many straucer? are now daily arriving in the city, and this season has every chance of being still more productive than the last. In the meantime, we observe that there is some mal-arrnngement between the two theatres?we mean Palmo's and the Park?with respect to the nights on which opera is produced. It seems that the same nights have been selected by both. This contre-temp* did not, however, originate, as we learn, with Palmo's, whose arrangements were first made, but was voluntarily adopted by the Park. The error should, however, be corrected, so that those who wish it,may have an opportunity of hearing the Italian company one night at Palmo's, and the Seguins at the Park on the next, without denying themselves on any occasion the pleasure wf listening to either. We hear of a variety of movements in relat ion to opera. The remarkable success of Paltno has stimulated a great many new enterprises in relation to the importation of operatic troupes from Europe. De Begnis, in connection with Palmo, is, we understand, engaged in getting up a subscription for this purpose, and so ulso is Signor Martini. Even Mr. Simpson, of the Park, has been excited into a similar movement, und he has issued during the last week, to some of the fashionable families o' the city, the following circular:? Park Theatre, April 37th, 1844. The undersigned,If he can procure subscriptions enough to warrant the enterprise, will depart for Europe immediately, for the purpose of engaging an Operatic Corfu and Ballet for the ensuing season, which commences on the first of September Foreign artists demand heavy advances for the due fulfilment of their contracts. To ena ble the undersigned to comply with their requisitions,thr present subscription is solicited. The terms are $50 lor a Season Ticket; the season warranted to be of 300 night's duration. Private boxes $400 and $500 for the season, according to the size. E.SIMPSON. In soineirespects Mr. Simpson is an excellent manager, and he is a very honorable man, but we doubt his enterprise and tact in such an enterprise as the collection and arrangement of such a troupe He has been once or twice to Europe without ef fecting much in the way of theatrical novelties However, il hejean succeed in this project, w< shall be very happy to second it. All these move ments indicate clearly enough that there are a present abundant materials for the establishnien here ?t an Italian operu of the best quality, and t ballet of the most fascinating description. The rivalry of Pulmo and Simpson may affect the in terestsof both, but cannot diminish the increasing passion for the opera. One thing, only, we woulc add, und that is a word of advice to Mr. Simpson that if he go to Europe he will not, as on a forme occasion, say unything to induce the belief tha theatricals were in a wretched condition here.

In the society in which he moved, he met with an amiable and pretty girl. Her loveliness irresistibly moved him to admire her, andjthen to love. He thought of the pimples aud freckles disfiguring his face ; it erobarraised and intimidated him in making his advances. He felt, and justly felt, too, that ha would be more welcometo his ladye love il he possessed a clear, smooth, transparent skin. In this dilemma he applied to a friend, who happily i bid him go to 67 Walker st .first store from Broadway, and get a cake of Dr. Feli.x Gouraud's Italian Medicated Soup He deluyed not a moment, and his face is now one of the most attractive in New York, and he is always welcomed by his lady with a glow of pleasure.

I do do. The gale of Pennsylvania S's were very large, reaching nearly on hundred thousand dollars. This stock hna already renche a very fair price compared with other 6 per cent securities j Tennessee 5's are quoted at only 86 percent. Kentucky f>\- only sell at Oft per cent. These stocks are inflnitel; safer and dividends are surer than that of Pennsylvania under any circumstances Kentucky and Tennessee hav very small puhlic debts, and an investment in the stock of those States can be considered almost beyond the poss bility of depreciation. Pennsylvania, on the other hand never can, from year to year, guaranty the payment o the interest on her debt, even should she once more pa: a dividend. With the doubt that must for a long time hani^ over her financial movements, the prices of the stock o the State cannot go much above the present quotntic j Subject, as the stock is, to so many contingencies, wer the dividends regularly paid, we cannot believe it will hit vance much more, unless great speculations should ' carried on in it. The Money Market Is getting a little easier. Loan can now be obtained for stock operations at 6 a 6 per cent In a short time the Banks and Insurance Companies wil he declaring dividends, when large sums of money wil be thrown into the market. Capitalists anil real estati owners have, within a day or two received large amount: ' in the way of rents and dividends.
