[coktirved.] Astor Iioi'sc, August lit, 1641. Dear Bknkett:? We are all off to-morrow morning for Philadelphia, to sign paper*.and ib) business in the greatest possible hurry; 1 that we may get otl by Saturday it possiblu?that, at you say, will depend on "the weather." 1 will let you know as t learn more?but don't be astonished if 1 come in to bid you good-bye on Saturday next. Best respects to Mrs. Bennett Yours, truly, II. WIKOFF. Stout gave me full authoiity to write a "Card" in contradiction ot the infamous story in the ''Sun"?saying, that called on by you, he felt it necessary to come forward in vindication of the wounded feelings of Mile. Klssler, but not in defence of himself, as he considered it unneci-ssa. y from the source he was attacked. H'litr thii 'Card" foi n.r, Bennett, with Stout's niino attached, [that is to say. forge Stout's namo, will oblige us J?lor lie gave me full authori'y to do it?and you can do it infinitely better than I ; hold me responsible. It will be a great favor to myself aud Klssler, and an advantage to Stout. Yours, again, 11. W. Jokes' Hotel, August 5th, 1841, ) I'll i la deli* iii a. ] Mv Dear Bekkett? I have just read your " Herald" of to-day, and as usual with great satisfaction?the more so for your civil paragraph about Fanny, and the more lengthy one about our ci-devant friend. Bates, Ksq. [Bates of the house of Baring, London.] I am glad you did this in this way: for my object was gained two years ago, when I gave the letter to him to you, when he received and acknowledged it, as he did by calling on you. My object at that time simply was to give you a chance, as iar us in me laid, to extend your acquaiatances in that line, and I ran some lisk In doing so; for I had no authority to introduce my friends to these ere people, aud 1 gave 'em no notice ol my inten tions, and that made it more funny; lor st that time neither you nor I were in the positions we hold now. You are 75 per cent more respectable; and as the devil will have it, I am just as much less so. Bo we go, up, up, up, down, down, down, to the end ol the chapter. And here's an end of my ph losophy. It is all settled about Fanny's not going, after this fashion :?As I humbugged you innocently enough last week, I give you the first intelligence, that the blackguard "Newt' may make the most of. Fanny came here the other day to settle her private affairs, and return to embark in the Great Western on Sa turday next. While so engaged, she was waylaid by Messrs llichings and Pratt, really two honest, respectable men, and badly off in proportion to their honesty. And they heiaught her to fulfil her outttanding engagement with them. ?he replied to the impossibility of doing it, and offered to waive the payment of $1000 lent to them when her ill health prevented her coming on, three weeks since. They were deeply grateful lor the offer; but It would not relieve their difficulties, nor the distresses ol the many poor devils, men and women, attached to the establishment, ail half starving. They begged and reasoned, and remonstrated, and e* treated her to put off her departure; and she, nolens to long, pave in. And she has countermanded her placet (I ami 1 in the Great Western ) Hoskens will be the great disappointed alter all. Fanny will fulfil her farewell engagement, and bid an everlasting adieu to the Philadelphia public, at the cloae ol this month. However tempt ing her offer at Ilavanu, I am sure she will not accept it. for countless reasons?thtf principal one of which you know. Vou didn't publish the " Card." Goed?the time is passed; but if you were to mention the receipt of it, and your withholding it, because you didn't deem your " nigger contemporary" worth the honor, 1 should like it greatly, Bennett. What do you think ? Just us you please. Best respects to Mrs. Bennett and family I shall see you Sunday next. Yours, truly, HENRY W1KOFF. P. 8.?Have you heard poor Welles of Paris is mortally ill f The last news is he will never get up. This shocked me, for he is a worthy man?droll, but very good at heart. He is such a one as would servo another without stopping to think if he would get paid hack again. I have known him do it Do you know any such man? Give us his hddress, and an introduction. Yours. Phi LsD slr in a, August Oth, ldll. Ma. Bkw.iktt bin? 1 have just left Mr. Wikoff, who told me to write to you in order to get redress from Mr. Simpson, Manager of the Park Theatre, who, owing to Mr Wikoff's absence, did not pay mptwenty-six dollars thirty one cents he owes for my children's dnncing for Miss Elssler's benefit and his own. Our week's salary was forty dollars ibr lour persons, and it was up Tuesday morning ; we got paid lor it, but wc had to stay until Saturday on account of Miss Elasler having her benefit on Wednesday and Mr. Simpson on Friday. Now we had to stay, and Mr. Simpson would not give a cent; had we played one night more, it would have been forty dollars. I cannot see how he could expect us to pay board, five of us, to stay to dance for his benefit for nothing. He never gave ine a oent ; I am unH<>r nn uhliffatinn to \1r. Simn?ot? f/hr tKo lunsl tl<in??nm even (or common politeness. for he does not posses* it. Therefore I have teen Mr. Wikoft", who khowa I am right in my demand, and thia moment told me to addreM my sell to you, he being confident you would do mo the favor to assist me in getting my due. Mr. WikolT will be in New York to-morrow (Sunday.) and no doubt will certify what I itate. Excuse mo, air ; but you will do an act oi benevolence by assisting me in thia. I beg you to accept my respects. JULIA VALLEE. Locust street, near fith, Washington Square. Mr Dnaa Biisisxtt You write to much for my amusement and instruction, that it would be niggardly in me not to acknowledge that in some way or other. 1 can hardly do so more usefully, I think, than by sending you suob information as will bi-comu the Herald, enlighten its readers, and annoy (by grace ot humbug) the retptclabl* press. His Excellency, the brench Ambassador, arrived in New Yonk, Sunday last, awaiting the arrival of I'rincr de Joinville, momentarily expected. We have seen, with great regret, several extraordinary attacks, or atrir.tures, in the pupi.-ra of lute upon Mons do Bucourt, that have been equally irreconcilable with that delicacy and respect due to a diplomatic persorat'"-, as with the plain facts of tun case It appears that Mr Aduiiis, some nionths ago. in an oration ot New Yoik, made some most unl.aiidsomo uiul unjust ndiuions to his Majesty. I.ouis Philiepe. His representative heie naturally aiid toy ally made this a subject of spirited remonstrance. Mr. Adams rememl?end these rebukes, and awaited any occasion to gratify iiis vindictive spleen, lie thought he had found one a few days ago, when he heard that a very able document of the French Minister's bud been put into the hands of the chairman of the ways and means?wiihout catingdiow it got there?he rose in his place, and made a sharp attack upon M. de Bacourt l'oi an irregular and undiplomatic in'trftrrncr with our affairs, by writing to acongrassional committee, fcc. That gross assaultotMr Adams was repeated and enlarged unon most severely in various papers It turns out that Nlon de Bacourt had been most unjustifiably abated, and that the conduct of Mr. Adams is really altogether un worthy of bis years and position. Mon. de Bacourt addressed a powerful State paper to the Secretary of Htate miv * iuc uau?i wan u> iur mi diplomatic communications. Mr. Webster referred it to Mr F.wlng Secretary of the Treasury, as belonging more properly to his department Mr. Fwing, of his own accord, and without consulting eren M de Bacourt, referred it to the chairmau of the ways and means, recommending it strongly to his attention as a document of remarkable merit. These are the facts of this strange case ; and the public may judgeof the deeply wounded delicacy of the French Minister,who has seen himself most ungenerousl) assailed and abused, whilst his conduct has been, since his arrival in this country, every way worthy the gallant nation he represents ; and in accordance with the usages of our own. It is proper to add that the President and Secretaries have made every atonement in their powei for the inexcusable behavior, we might say outrage, ol Mr. Adams. 1 think it would be well to publish the above after your own fashion. The lacts/Aais had from the party concerned?all veritable ; and you may have replies frerr. the venerable John, who will never let his homily be at tacked this wny. Mon. de Bacourt may respons?great fun ; only don't let it be suspected where the lnlormation has come from. Correspondent at Washington, who knows every thing, vide Mr. Botts?that's rich. 1 hope you may bo continued to be tormented with that horse malady, the bete. Best respects to Mrs. B. and family lannv sends best respects also. Yours, II. W. Mon. de B. visited Stout's Statue of Fanny Klssler, towards whom he has manifested much kind feeling during his residence in the country; for he pronounces it one ol ihn most remarkable productions of the age. Put this in, friend. Mr Dms BcvatTT?

I told Morrie a few weeks ago not to annoy or offend yon in any way, or I would not guarantee the reaulta for himself, lie no doubt believes I put you in possession of all my suspicions about him. I have received a few days back n letter from another committee, signed by Morris, kc. ike. requesting Md'lle E's services lor Mrs. Maoder, alias lor the committee at the Astor House, wine, srgars, ke.ns every body informs me.

I.vt him come on, though?I should have a might) Auxiliary in you. The fact is, Bennett, Md'lle Klssler believes you ar< her friend ; I know you are mine, and tin tampering of old enemies will never make you forget true friends. Perhaps I am mistaken, and do the (leneral wrong ; but my attention has been directed to tho matter, und since you ?re tho only potent now-a-davs who can fay, " there be light, and there is light,I come to you for edification and consultation.

Boitox, 23d Oct. 1S41. Mr Dcar BcmtrrT :? Fashionable arrivals, extraordinary arrivals, all sorts of arrivals. I.ord Morneth has come?Sir Joseph de I'oursy I.nihil has relumed?and so has Christopher Hughes, Flip, our Charge at Stockholm Let us say something about each and ull of them. Lord Morpeth is the son of Lard Carlisle, who is an excellent man, kind anil cordial to all American!, and a little lame of one leg ; If 1 recollect well he wa* guardian to Lord Byron?looK at the document*. Lord Morpeth it a tall, fine looking man, though hit hair hear* the gray livery ol thought ; he U a sound scholar and accomplished writer?a ready and copious debater, and a gentleman to boot, lie was, as everybody knows, late Secretary for Ireland to her most gracious Utile Majesty, and representative for the must green great people in parliament. At the caprice of the great latter, the little Queen was obliged to send liita about his buttnest which is just no business at all, at all?and that is what has brought Kim here. He has lost hi* post, and his seaf, but like a sensible man, he will not lose his time And therefore he comes here, the most original country in the world, and he ?'ill be amused, instructed, and immensely bored. Sir Joseph de Coursy LalHn is on Knglish Baronet, a well-bred Knglish gentleman, smoothmannerad mein, and has great currency in tho best English society. Why he is here, what hi* object, where he is going to afterwards, can't say. There are rumors that he had something to do with the McLcod ulfair?what, dont know?mnm?mysterious, Christopher Hughes, Charge d'Aftairs at Stockholm? a most extraordinary person in many respects. O'Connell (sails himsell the " best abused man in the world"? that was before your time. Mr. Hughe* is unquestionably th* " best known man in the world" from New York to Kaiuicatka. north and south?from your nose to the Lmperor ol Cmna's big toe, east and west. This is tfie most remarkable thing, perhaps, about him. Never did anv man, in private life, obtain such currency and wide celebrity among all classes, grades, occupations, sexesroyal, plebeian, duke or dunce, saint or savage?all arc known to him?all are liked by him?for he knows no one he dont like?and in return, he is well loved by all? his name is never sounded without brightening all eyes and drawing forth a thousand welcomes. Let us investi gate this, lie is a man beyond fifty, decidedly greyish hair and eyes?and how the latter twinkle.scintillate and flash?they do more work than filtv common pens?his nose has a pert, inquiring look?and his mouth, ah, that is the Rrrat feature?that Is the mine where lies all his treasure, in one long, rod ingot?his tongue. Yes, Mr. Bennett, it may all be summed up in that?its his tongue that ioee it all ; it can say more, in any given time, than any other that now wags, here or elsewhere?more wise things, strange-things, droll things, than ever tongue or mind conceived. The iteam that Keeps up the alacrity of this wonderful organ is a perennial flow of the finest ani mal Hpirits that ever man was bleat with. They produce all the effect a St. Vitua'a dance on him ; for every part of him, in conversation, ii in motion?lege, arma, head and watch chum.

Do say something handsome of Hughes, who ia alt I say?a most extraordinary |>erson?knows all Europe?the very highest?and if von go there she takes you by the hnnd, us ho would bndne first to do; he would give you the quid pro quo. He circulates the "Herald" over Stockholm, St. Petersburg?that is. he sends every thing snout Fanny. whom lie loves aa his daughter, to Kings, Emperors, and God knows who all Lastly, he wrote?for he writon well?the best sketch of you, in a letter to Fanny, since she has been here. I have seen yet. I will show it to you. The " Herald"lives iigain since your return?it was in your absence a dead body galvanised; now the soul shines through it again. To buy the "Herald" without your wit or knowledge, that makes it all it is, would be worse I can't find a simile. Vou might aa well give a million for one of Funny's petticoa's, to get her grace. My beat respects to your wife, and Fanny's too. (.'harming article you wrote about her departure. Yours, truly, H. WIKOFF. Boito.v, October 36, 1841. Drsn Bmxictt You have not published my letter yet. You think it too private and particular. If you do think so, you are wrong. In a well managed " paper," as the Herald, any decent niece of composition may bo introduced under a proper heading, as "fashionable gossip," that would justify all the details I sent you, and 'what is the certain result I Lord Morpeth, Kir Joseph, particularly Hughes, would he greatly fla'tered, and they and all their friends would be reading and talking of the "Herald." Lord vlorneth, I know, would send it to his set In England. Hughes is more known than any American in this country and in Europe, and, being rather a vain man, would talk of the " Herald " till he died. The letter is not objectionable on that account. As for the composition, it is not mucli worse than others you do publish? bnt.for that, you nro the best judge. There is onlyn.e thing connected with it that resta heavy on my conscience. and that is the postage I forgot lo pay ; permit me to enclose it Fanny is well?and last night's house was crowded with beauty and ultra fashion : the Otises, Appletons, Parkers, c.morys, unn. among tne onserveu ol all onservers, Lorn Morpeth.

I intend to send yon a paragraph that will be readablo from the heading of it, and I um tne more emboldened to lo it from what I have learnt these two or three days here. I have met no less thon six persons that began to take the " Herald," to gut news of " Fanny," and now, of course, continue to take it for its own, or youi sake. It is clear von have a way of doing her and your circulation s great deal of good. I want to recount some marvellous, oi. as you say, providtntial escapes, of Fanny?hut out ol respect for the religious prejudices of the country, she never travels on a Sunday; and though she was expected in Philadelphia last Sabbath, she reserved herself for Monlay, and learnt here, on her arrival, that three engines broke ilowi coming; on, and the passengers didn't' Ret hera till four o'clock iu the morning.

ORK MORNING, MAY 6, 1844. Immense Meeting of the New York Bible Society. The most crowded meeting ever held in the Tabernacle, was that of the above society, which took place last evening. It has been estimated that over 500 persons left who were unable to obtain admittance at the door, while the cupola that o'ertopped the immense building, was thronged with ladies and gentlemen,whose anxious eyes and countenances, in surveying the scene beneath, had a very novel effect. The pressure in all quarters, of the immense building was intense. A well assorted choir, composed of ladies and gentlemen, were ranged near the organ who 0|>ened with a psalm. Dr. Dkrbin, of Philadelphia, offered prayer. Mr. Bi AtKruRD, the Secretary, hereupon mi<l, that it wu* intended on thia occasion to make no report in relation to the operations of the society Tim New York Bible Society was the agent ot the community, it was an instrument for all who advocated the distribution of the Bible without iw.e or comment, and it called upon the community to give their substantial assistance, as it had labored lor SU years in the cause. The throng of emigrant i that annually flocked to the American shores were supplied with copies ot the Bible in their own native tongue. The civil uiidhnibtary departments and ull public institutions were supplied by this Society. Profhios liORtAM here came forward, and after congratulating the meeting on the extent and character of the audience, road,the text upon which lie came forward to preach, taken from the 2!?th chapter of Isaiah, lHtli and 21th verses. He commenced his discourse by calling the attention of his auditory to the fact, that since the creation of man, guilt and danger were institutions that were always common to our nature There were many evidences of this in looking upon tin- state of human existence in the world. He could iliustrato the subject by adveiting to the effects of hope and fear upon the human mind, and turning to Christianity aud revelation They were compelled to view, with depth und intensity of admiration, the gilt of Divine Providence in estahlirhing Christianity, and they saw a striking and interesting illustration of the prophetic words of the gospel in the spectacle that presented itself in fuch an array bi lie saw haiore him on that evening Kvery man that looked into himself and contemplated Ins destiny, would lie (truck with the wisdom and dssigns of Providence in hi? formation of the < Christian system, and how it tended to dignify human nature. In surveying the world, they saw the big > arrangement and lofty thought discovered by Providence in contemplating the ends for which man waa created. The human mind, in it ( cormorant desire for pleasure, was more apt to hunt and wonder in the region of fiction than to dwell upon the "stern truths and realities" contained in the Bible. The Bible maiked the history of the. world, and without it Heaven would he a chasm in history. The gospel was a grand and peculiar system, rui gentris, ami was surrounded by precincts which nothing could attack ; it wai the source of the regeneration oi mankind ; it had withstood the test ol centuries, and it would eventually unite man in one general fold?breaking down the limits and barriers of sectarianism ; it always had a witness, and the gospel had spread to the remotest recesses of the world, diffusing Its cneering influence and illuminating the world. It would continue to enlighten all until the Jows, and all unbelievers, were t ollected to the " one fold," under the "one shepherd," diffusing " peace and good will amongst man " It bad reached the torrid and the frigid 7.01108?the world was its alma staler, and her children were its alumni. It was handed down through the remotest ages, and would redeem and regenerate universal man. The rev. gentleman concluded a very brilliant discourse, which seemed to give general satisfaction. A collection then was made, when the meeting separated. Foreign (evangelical Society. The anniversary sermon in aid of the funds of this very meritorious society, was preached in the Reformed Dutch Church, Washington Square, Sunday evening, by the Rev. Dr. Bethune, of Philadelphia. The church is a very beautiful 3|)cuiiucii ui aituactiuir, unu |trc?ciiicu n. mubi impressive appearance on the occasion. So many worshipper* probably were never before congregated within its walla for any sacred purpose. Many were unable to procure sea's; out the anxiety Jo hear Dr. Bethune, whose reputntion for pulpit eloquence is not confined to circles where it has been heard, reconciled that part o( ths audience to the iuconvenienco of atanding.? A breatnleia attention pervaded (lie sacred edifice, while the words of gospel truth, the eltlcacy of missionary la bcr, the potency of vital Christianity, was laid down in terms well calculated to cheer the hopes, rouGrmthe faith and excite the tienevolent'.energv of the church, and vanquish the scepticism of those who do not perceive, in the humble, unobtrusive and devoted labor ol missionaries, un agency at work which will, in due time, revolutionize and renovate the world. Some passages of Dr Rethune's sermon were peculiarly striking. The contrast between the progress of the gospel, and that of the onward march of this active age, and all that worldly wisdom holds to be the trophies ef the activity, the indications of the superiority of modern times, was extremely'beautiful. The rapacity of conquerors hounding " beyond the Citing medium of desire" might wage in Affghriniitan a war unparalleled for atrocitv?the wall of China might he passed hy vigilance and enterprise- but. the triumphs of the gospel were those of peace?yet strong enough to shatter the adamant oPheath en darkness, ana cuush Mohomedan fallacy to totter 011 its throne ; its pacific crusades were unlike those of old, yet would bear triumphant the glad ti lings of the (inspel into eastern lands, until the bediinmcd Crescent would sink beneath the glory ol theCross. Th'- sermon was listened to with breathless attention, and a great stimulus it may he fairly expected to prove in favor of the missionary cause. The services concluded at about half past nine o'clock Intbreottno Exhibition of Plants and Flow kks ? \ visit to Mr. Russell's conservator! , South Ferty, Brooklyn, would well repay the botanist and all the curious in th a interesting and useiul branch of science. The department!) in the conservatories arc well stocked with a fine collection oi the moat rare and beautiful plants and 11 iwers, consisting of aulios, dahlia", pelargoniums, verbenas, tube-roses, pn onias, magnolias, rhododendrons, See Sec. Mas of this beautiful collection ol plants are the result of Mr. Russell's own " breeding," as he technically describes it. In the first room is seen a very eplen did and varied collection of dahlias and other valuable plants, produced from "mother Hybrid," im ported from London. The zelia lateretra, of China, raised from a seedling, and crossed from the East India Hassal, with the Ilussell hybrid and rhododendron grandiflorum. The botanist would feel deeply interested in the whole exhibition ; and the descriptions given by Mr. R. on the subject of hia botanical experiments, with the results, proves that there exists a strong a' alogy between animal and vegetable nature. There is a male and female of every flower, which, where they undergo the process of grnfiitig or sowing together, produce aotne new genus varying considerably from the parent stock. Askilfril botanist, versed in the art of "breeding," could with proper attention and care raise fifty varieties of flowers Iroin the one parent stock. He has been four years gardener at Kew, under the late King. Amongst the stock exhibited were some hettutifat specimens of the Chinese white axelia. The parent stock produced but three bells in the hunch, while Mr. R. by " education" has improved it, in the space of five years, so as to make the new grafts produce eleven at a blow. The new variety are called hybrid*. Among the collection are also some beautiful specimens of the perpetual rose and mvrile orange. in the second division are several valuable specimens of the rarest flowers?the multiflora; the rosegmvilla, raised in London ; and the Kusselhana, called alter distinguished English ladies ol this name; six new varieties of magnolia. The Kusselhana is a magnificent specimen of the rose that sometimes produces 70 flowers in the bunch, and a shoot twenty-five feet in height. The third reom contained a variety of all kinds of seedlings, and two new kinds of dahlia, produced by Mr. Russell, called the Lady Ashburion and Mrs Webster, in commemoration of the Ashhurton trea ty. These Hre very beautiful.and the proprietor hae a large supply for sale. A very pretty specimen of the inirnulus, or monkey flower The pleasure grounds adjoining are well laid out, and partly fenced in by abeautilul hawthorn hedge, planted bv the landlord, Mr Cornelius Hayne, and imported from Ireland. A hybrid seedling amongst the collection, showing the character of the zelin and rhododendron, is a kind ol phenomenon in i's way (his is a regular twin flower, and is a rare curiosity. The conservatories are well worth a visit. Sportico Imci.t-ioinc*.?Tint Spring, or Trial Meeting, for one day only, eoincs off over the Long Inlaad Course to-morrow.

HER .4 Closk of Mr. Clay's Tour.?Mr. Clay has closed Ilia wandering* over the Union, in the following capital letter, just published in the National Intelli- I gencer:? Wa?iii>ioto*, Moy 3, 1*4-4. I To tiir Kditoki Oi.itlimdi : Prior to tlie commencement, ami during the nroereiii ol the journey which I have recently made to some o! the Southern States, I received nunieious invitations to vnit my fellow-citizens at various jwints of the Union. I was compelled to decline accipting the granter number of them, mid, in moat instances, transmitted answers accordingly ; hut, ua I may have omitted to reply to aome ol them, und aa othera addreaaed to me may not hare reached me, to all auch 1 request to be allowed, through'the National Intelligencer, [New York lleruld, also,] to communicate u general and respectful anawer, and to state the ground on which 1 shall leel constrained to place any similar invitations with which 1 may he in future honored. These iionulur demonstrations of friendship, attachment and confidence towards me, are highly graliiying to my feelings, and are entitled to an expression of my prolound and grateful acknowledgments. 11' it were suitable mil proper in my judgment, to meet assemblages of my fellow-citizens on the occasions proposed, 1 would embrace the opportunity with pleasure, and should exchange friendly salutations with them with a warmth and enthusiasm, on my part, not exceeded by their own. But an event of importance took place on the first instant in Baltimore. A Convention of Delegates ftom the whig psrty, coming from all parts of the United States, acting in conformity with the well-ascertained wishes arid serite ments of the whigs of the United States, has formally announced my name as a candidate for the. ollice of President of the United States, and, from ii high sense of duly, I hare accepted the nomination, it has been, moreover, ratified by another Convention, composed of delegates from every part of the United States, who assembled on the id instant in Baltimore. Being thus placed, with my own consent, in the attitude of a candidate for that liigu ollice, 1 feci myself bouud to respect and perform till the duties and obligations which appertain to me in that character. The election of a Chief Magistrate of a free, great, and enlightened nation, is one ot the gravest and most momentous (unctions which the people can exercise It is emphatically, and ought to be exclusively, their own business. Upon the wisdom of their choice depends the preservation "and soundness ot free institutions, and the welfare ami prosperity ot themselves. In making it, they should be free, impartial, and wholly unbiased by the conduct of a candidate himseif. Not only, in my opinion, is it liia diitv to ubstain Irom nil solicitation, direct or indirect, of their suffrages, hut he should avoid being voluntarily placed in situations to seek, or in which he might he supposed to seek, to influence their judgment. kntertaining these views of what becomes o candidate lor the exalted ollice of President of the United Mutes, I shall act in strict conformity with them, ilerenfter, and until the pending Presidential election is decided, I cun not accept nor attend any public meeting ol my tellowcitizen*, awmblcd in reference to tbat object, ta which I may have been or shall be invited. It is iny wUh and intention, when I leave this city, to return home as quietly and quickly at possible; and, employing myself in my private business und ntl'airs, there to await the decision of the Presidential election, acquiescing in it, whatever it may be, with the most perfect submission. I hope those who have honored me with invitations to which I have not yet replied, and those whs may have intended me the honor ftransmitting others, will accept, without disapprobation, this exposition of the motives by which I am governed. I am, gentlemen, your friend and obedient servant, II. CLAY. National Academy of Design.tlnued. 100. View of tim Tiber, Hastmc or St. Angkt.o, \-.c. Arc.?<1.1 >wn.?This is not only a beautiful subject, but well executed. St. Peter's, looming in the evening's dusk, comes in well, giving that hazy, though sunnv,appearance in the distance. The coloring in the foreground is exaggerated and over-done, und makes the whole picture much too warm for nature. 101. Portrait ok 1)r. JI. II. Sheuwoob.?T.

The execution, too. | is hard and formal, and calculated to impress the I spectator with the notion Ilmt lie in lOOKtng < t n | let truy. The hair in ot'n line we have never seen, J except ?n a painter's pallet. ' 105. The Beggar's Petition?F. W. Edmonds, I N. A.?An original subject. aVid verv well treated. The miserly expression of the hoary old (Input* is tolerably good ; the attitude of the girl prest.'tit :g the petition, is well drawn, and without constraint: I there is n little hardness in the outline, which, if remedied, would tiling out her figure more. The nttitudes, also, of the beggar and child are very good, but we think that the red hue which pervades their faces is not in proper keeping. 107. Portrait ok a Gentleman?(Jhas E. Weir. ?This may be an excellent likeness, hut we raniiot admire the flesh tints in the lower part of the face ; there is, however, n great deal of character in tinexpression. 111. Evening, a Composition.?J. F. Cropsev,? We find that u number of urtists in their compoaitioiis, w i?li to crowd in too nianv different subjects and effects in their designs, thereby muring the ends they would arrive at. This artist, we think, has fallen into this error, for though there are portions of his picture which, if taken alone, are far front being bad, yet when combined do not produce the desired ellect. If more time were spent out of doors in copying nature, it would be much more profitably employed than in endeavoring to almost forestall it in its beauties. 112. Portrait of Rev. Doctor Mooney. N. A.?A well executed figure. lit re tbere is no attempt ai uny striking effects. The flesh beautifully rounded and mellowed. All is simple, easy and artist-like, with the exception o( the glaring red cushion on which the Itible rests, and uniformity of back ground. 115. Portrait op James <f. Prrcivai.?G. W. b'ldgg.?There is a great deal of merit about this. It, like a few others, deserves to change positions with some which ought not to have been admitted. Altogether, the -lyle of this portrait is much to our taste. 120. Fr.eur de Marie, from the Mysteries of Paris?J. Stearns.?" Tlie expression of Marie was profoundly contemplative. Thpre are certain joys which cause emotions of ineffable sadness, of melancholy the most holy"- Part I, chap. I I.

A. ?Another portrait: we may here observe that this yeat as well as last, the walls have been covered with portraits, and some of them,as we have before mentioned, not worthy of notice. In making this observation,of course,we have no reference to Mr. Ingham. \Ve have lately heatd a very good eonnossieur ot paintings say that no gallery would he complete without one of Mr. IV. portraits, and we guile agree with hnn.

We think that had there been u little more depth ol shadow in foreground, the effect would have been better. The clear shallow stream in excellently represented, and the figure in red here cornea in well unit enlivens u naturally cold scene. 130. Portrait ok Miss Taylor?J.

This is exemplified to a fault in this picture, tor that these ehildren were placed in positions represented, nnd remained so until the incture was complete, there can he no doubt. 1 his the children must not he hlained for, hut the artist,who,if he had drawn them without thin attitudinizing, would have produced a better piotare.

VriM Two Ctnu. 'iteenwood Ckmeteky?This new und beautify burial ground is considerably improved within the last twelve months; and is gradually being taken up by purchasers of lots chielly lrom our city. The prow tit plot of ground appropriated under the charter, consists ot 17(1 acres ot well enclosed and fenced land, carefully laid out with infinite taste. The plantations are all in high preservation, and are attended to by twenty-three regular gardeners This ( Vmeteryia a beautiful retreat,unci well adapted lor the calm meditations ot the moralist, from the solemn stillness that reigns around, and the mute though impressive lessons which its monuments inculcate. Within the last twelve or eighteen months the remains, members of some of thei oldest inhabitants of New York, have heenremcved by their friends from the burial grounds about the city, where they had lain some mouldering in decay so far back us 90 or 100 years?and have been deposi'ed in some of the monuments in this new cemetery. Some of the leading families in New York and Brooklyn have taken lots in tnis new burial ground and have, had erected costly monuments, of the most superb designs, for the remains of their families. The entrance gate w ill be n?atly tilted out. The present is plain, and a neat rustic cottage for the keeper's residence is built adjoining. There is a w?' 11 lilfv.f li ? *># * ?#? t and a very good bell suspended from un adjoining part of the building specially fitted lor it. There are monuments oi nrh and elegant workmanship built in various parts of the grounds, belonging to several leading families of tins city. A very beautiful specimen of rich Gothic design, belonging to the family of Lisnenard ^ewnrt The University of the City of New York own a very nice plot,on which is erected a neat and simple monument to the late Dr. Leckie. A marble monument is erected in memory of young Poole, who lost his life in the " Erie." His remains are deposited in the vault beneath. They were dug up some time ago from beneath the Carmine street burying ground, where they bad been soak lour feet beneath the surface of the earth. Several of the monuments sire designed and executed under the superintendence of Mr. Upjohn, whose superior professional abilities, in relation to Trinity Church, we took occasion a few days back to notice. The various highly finished specimens of monuments?varying in plan, conception, and execution?whichUare located on the different lots already taken?all designed by Mr. Upjohn?nre additional evidence of his high anilities as an artist. The stone of which these are composed is the same as that of Trinity Church. Amongst the most interesting of the monuments, is one that has been erected in memory of the beautiful Indian girl, who died in tins city in the spring of 18-13. This is a plain, white marble monument oi very chaste design and well executed. It is erected over the gruvr of the Princess, and of quadrangular form. On one side is inscribed the words i? "Do-Ik'm-mr, wife of Cowhiekie, a young warrior of tko lowas, Died at New York, March tth, 1H43." (the opposite side:? "Do-Hcu-mk, daughter of Naw-Noi rr Tuiiiac-Toc, Chief of the Sac Indiana " A weeping Indian warrior, superbly chiselled on the opposite side of the monument, gives a beautiful finish ; ami then, on the fourth side are inscribed these simple lines:? "Thou'rt happy now, for thou hast pait The cold, dark journey of the grave, An-1, in the laud of light at last, Ifa*t joined the good - the fair?the hruve." The present keeper, Mr. Scringiour, is constantly on the grounds, anil is most assiduous and nttentive to visitors. There is no place more udmirubly adapted lor the son-inn repose ol Hie mighty dead" tlinn this cemetery. Removed ut a convenient distance front the huBtle and perpetual noise ot this large city, there are hours,in our dreary pilgrimage through life, when a certain instinct in cur common nature impels us to hold commune with the dead, and reflect upon the transitory nothingness of I it its world?dwell upon the viituesof blends that are gone, and on the instability tmd vanity ol all human pleasures Here is a beautiful i el rent, and il will, doubtless, in a short period, he the chief cemetery for all the principal families m tlua city. A visit to this beautiful mansion of the dead will be found truly interesting. Our Public Institutions.?A recent visit to ilte Alms House, at Bellevue, Lunatic Asylum and Penitentiary on Bluck well's Island, and Long? Island Farms, has evidenced the excellent condition in which these publi c institutions will be banded over to the new Common Council on Tuesday ol next week, if they then feel disposed to take them into their possession. The general superintendence reflects innch credit upon the Alms Houte Commissioners, who should extend their judgment to 'lie instant dismissal of all subordinates at the Lunatic Asylum, who refuse to res|?ect and obey the instructions of the talented physician who has charge ol that institution. They should well know that disres|>ect of lite orders ot any of the heads ot the various departments under their jurisdiction begets complete insubordination, and prevents much good tiiat otherwise would be accomplished. The Alms House, under the immediate superintendence n| William P. Moss ; the Lunatic Asylum, under Dr. Edmund Stewart; the Penitentiary and grounds, under JohnOrser; and the Long Island Farms under Dr Nicholas Morrell nnd William II. Guest, superintendent, presented an appearance creditable, in the highest degree, to these gentlemen, whose places it will he difficult to fill with as efficient public servants. The improvements upon Blackwell's Island, and the advanced state ot the grounds adjacent to the penitentiary, contrast strongly with ihe impoverished and barren state in which it was left 11 year since, when Mr. Orser was appointed.
