Calhoun?Advertisements, Arc. Sec. Steamship Hiber.nia ? This ship has been at sea sixteen days. Her passage has undoubtedly been lengthened by the dense logs that at this season prevail on the banks, and the vast quantities of floating ice found in those latitudes. Our overland express will leave Boston immediately after her arrival, and an extra will be issued from this office immediately on its arrival in this city. The advices by the Hibernia will probably be highly interesting and important. It is supposed O'Connell received his sentence on the 15th of April, four ^lays before the steamer left.

Thus far ih-whigs have had the advantage of anion in their ranks, growing enthusiasm, and the clearest of fields. Their principles and their men are before the nation, in the broadest form and in the most candid shape. The whig convention, in nominating Clay and Frelmghuysen, did not pass over in silence their principles and measures, as they did in 1840. They have boldly flung their banner to the breeze, in this brief declaration of faith, which was adopted and passed by the convention last week: ? Resolved, That in presenting to the people the names ot HENRY CLAY lor President, ami THEODORE FRELlNt.HU YSEN for Vice-President, this Convention is actuated the conviction tuat all the groat principles of the Whig party?principles inseparable from rhe public honor and prosperity?will be maintained and advanced by the election otchose candidates. i Resolved, That these principles may be summed up as , comprising 1st. A well-regulated national currency. 1 9ud. A Tariff lor revenue to defray the necessary ex- j penses of the Government, and discriminating with spe- . rial reference to the protection of the domestic labor ot ' the country I 3rd. The distribution of the proceeds from the sales of , the public lands. 4th. A single term for the Presidency. I 8th. A reform of Executive usurpations. 6th. And generally such an administration of the affairs of the country as shall imparl t > everv branch of the pub- 1 lie service the greatest practicable efficiency, controlled , by a well-regulated ami wise economy. Here are six plain and distinct principles, in- 1 volving every interest, which the whigs adopt as the banner under which they go forth to battle. ' On the subject of Texas, tney are silent, which, with Mr. Clay's letter before us, may be cot:sidered a species of opposition, or at least a postponement, till Mexico agrees to such a measuie. 1 With these men and measures, the whigs ' throughout the republic will now go to work?tru- 1 vel the country over, speak, talk, reason, sing and 1 sermonize until November. Such is the position of the whigs. What is the position and prospects of the democrats! Very bad ?truely bad?almost hopeless?entirely desponding. Let us see. The democracy are in a state of great confusion Had disunion, not only on their measures bni, on their men also. First, of their measures.? in reference to a bank, or an institution lurnishing a national currency, the democrats are opposed ; ' eo also are they opposed to the distribution of the 1 public land"!, but on the Texas question, a protec- ' tive tariff, and a Presidential single term, thi-y are ' divided and torn to pieces in the most melancholy ' 'nannrr The same disse.npions also exist in relerT ^ ence to their principal c tudid.iies tor office. For two or three years liieie was .t li-rce contest between ' Calhoun and Van R'iren, till the former withdrew, ' and now there i ; a strong apposition toVan I5ur<*n on v account ol his views on the tariff, Texas, aim 1 single-term questions?involving, also, the succession Hut, above, all the recent election in Virginia u has given a tatal blow to Van Buren's chances of ^ the nomination or availability.

It will, therefore, he seen that the democracy will be 11 a very interesting position from this day up to the 27th instant. It is in the throes of labor of the most intense kind. Every thing will depend on the candidate selected by that Convention. If they select a proper man, the contest will be splendid?it will be in a contest on measures and principles known to the whole world. If the wings 1 succeed in electing Henry Clay, a national bank J will be established, if capitalists can be found a second time to trust their money in such an institution. The proceeds of the public lands will be distributed to the States, and thereby State stocks may rise in price. The present protective tarill will be settled and fixed. A single Presidential t rm will be established. Texas will be refused admission into the Union, and Daniel Webster will 1 f i iceed Mr. Clay. We will have a few years oil ood times?great bank expansions?high priest? I m lucky st>eculatioun?to end in another re vuliuoa like that of 1837, which, however, will only overtake 'he ignorant and unwise. On the contrary, if the j "leinocruts select a candidate that will conciliate , ill the elements of the party, (which Mr. Van | Jlureii cannot do.) they may yet overthrow the ! prospects ol Mr. Clay?prevent bank expansions? ' .-truugle another national bank in the seed?check all speculations leading to the weafth and extravagance ol a day, but the ruin and poverty of a whole life. Such is the interesting crisis and contest before us. Let us watch every movement?and pluce it before our readers. The Wikoff Correspondence?Fanny in tue United States.?We give to-day unother batch ol this famous correspondence, written by this man-milliner, this Mantalmi, this " Chevalier Wikolf," who attempts to set himself up h>*re as the pink ol gentlemen, a moralist ol the first water, and sovereign leader of public opinion, and which gives an account of the career of beautiful Fanny Flssler, in the United States, with a particular and graphic record of all the impudent, ridiculous, and disgraceful things and doings with which this chevalier was connected, and by which he almost ruined Fanny's prospects in this country. It is almost impossible to enter into an analysis of the absurd sayings and doings, and ridiculous things with which this Chevalier became connected, as appears by his own correspondence. One thing, however, is evident, from the beginning ol the correspondence to the dale to which we have now arrived?for we have many additional letters to give ?and that is, that every statement which this man milliner has made to the New York papersin relation to our disinterested conduct towards Fanny Kl.-usler, has been proved to be an arrant und delihe- : rale falsehood. Hardly a single t tile is ihere in tins large collection of his own letters, which docs noi prove him to be a liar. Even his own letter, ( published in our last batch, and written nearly a year and u halt after Fanny Elssler's arrival in this country, and before any of those presents or " black ! mail," as he calls it,were given to us?even in that letter he admits the truth of what we Htated, and convicts himself ol telling agross and atrocious falsehood. "FannyElssler," says he, "was very anxious to make you some handsome acknowledgment before she went south ; but I said no, do it before you It uvc the country, for I believe he would accept cheerfully then what he might look on as a sort ol buytug up his good word now " Was ever falsehood so glaringly exposed 1 Was 4?er calumny so stripped naked to meet the just indignation of the public 1 And this is only one of the falsehoods of which, under Ins own hand and seal, tnis chevalier stands convicted. Every letter brands and burns deep into his forehead the eternal infamy of falsehood it is utterly impossible to enumerate the various points in these letters which show the shocking character of this man?his utter destitution of all truth, honor, manliness, and inteimtv. His folly mid impudence are equalled only by las want ol veracity. The correspondence is, indeed, Lhe most p.unlully elaborate exhibition of combined silliness, ignorance, and falsehood, which has perhaps ever been presented tor the warning and instruction oi mankind. We have known tools who yet regarded trutn, and would have scorned to stoop to deliberate falsehood. We have known, also, liars, who, although it added to their infamy, were yet intelligent and sensible. But here we have a a hybrid sort ot character, combining foolishness and falsehood to an unparalleled extent. In one of the letters published to-day, he very deliberately asks us to publish a card and append to it the name of Mr. Stout. This forgery he asks us to commit, with as much nonchalance as on the utterance of any ol his talsehoods, just as it he really expected that we would deliberately go to work and forge Mr. Stout's name on his resjionsibility. Then, if an illuslratiou of his morals were wanted, look ut the story connected with Mrs. Valleeand her children. Look at ;he meanness withwhichhe attempted to tob oil this )oor woman who had a claim of $26, by desiring icr to write to me, and through my influence get >ayment from Mr. Simjison, whilst Fanny Elssler would herself, had it been made known to her, have paid it at once ! Then as to his ridiculous and impudent talk about his position and mixing in high society ; in one of his letters Iroin Boston he details a statement that " we," that is Fanny and himself, "dined with the highly respectable Mr. Otis, and a distin juishfd circle, including John Quincy Adams, Judge Story and Professor Ticknor," and tlial they illicit the dinner party early, in order to "pay lomage to Fanny at the theatre"?and all this he Hates with a request that we would publish it, in aider to feed his vanity. But we had a little more sagacity than this fool imagined it possible for any one to. have, and this statement, which we don't yet believe a word of, we nailed to the counter, like many of his other fabrications. So with regard to his assertion that we called upon him, and were pressing our civilities upon him, and following him and Fanny Elssler. Why every letter that we publish proves the utter falsity of his statement. In every letter,it is seen he is tormenting and pressing us continually to say this and to say that?to publi-h tins and to publish that?to j>u{] in this way and to puffin that way; and not Duly did he thus annoy us by letter, but while in Mew Vurk he was continually at our office boring ind teasing us to such an extent, that we had at act, oil one occasion, to tell him that we would i Lick him out of our office, and this was well .nown to all who were in at the time. Whenever ' ic got into a row, as at Coney Island?whenever I le got into difficulty, as that with Simpson, and he | vas eternally getting into scrapes from his iiiprrtiuence, folly, ignorance and presumption ' -whenever he got into trouble of any kind, he ,lw lvscame, as he says, "to hear what Robinson 3rusoe would say !" We were his stay?his guide -his mentor?his "Robinson Crusoe," in all diffiulties. Such is the picture of this man, ns presented by limself! A mean, impudent,ignorant,presumptuous, ying, malicious person?without either birth or rlucaiion?without a " position" either in Europe r this country ! and this is the creature who prates ibout honor and morality?about the national uhuacter? and starts a miserable paper to improve kmerican morals, and vindicate American res|iectbility, and all that! Pooh! it is too great a arce to proceed farther with to-day.

STOUT. The Texas Meeting In the Park on Sa tnrday Afternoon?Accidental Smashdown of the Platform?Great Gathering ot the " Hone mid Jtlnew"?Grent Speeches from Mike Walsh, Win. shaler, and a dozen other* of the flower of the Democracy. The call of a meeting iu the Park of all in favor of the annexation ol Texas, brought together an immense crowd of at least ten thousand people. A platform was erected in trout of the City Hull, which was tuken possession of by a rather miscellaneous crowd ol persons who rushed toward und jammed up every available spot. The " lone star" llag of Texas floated from the platform. On motion, The Hon. J. II. Suvdam was unanimously called to the Chair. On motion of E. S. Osrry, Esq., the following gentlemen were nominated Vice Presidents:? I Jolm 1 Boyd, H. C. Towner, P. O. Moloney, ; Henry Kaymuinl, Joint Lo Count, John Kmmsns, i J. Snermau Brownell, lJavid P. Hulstead, John Murphy, U. C. Broderick, Klijah F. Partly, Wm I' Poweri, hid waid J Swords, J. J. Phillips, Stephen Hasbrouck Geo. Dixey, Kccles Gilleinler, Henry C. Atwood. I On motion ol Major tf. E. Baldwin, the following gentlemen were appointed lo act as Secretaries :? John Bogert, (Jeo. W. Niles, llenrv P Barber, Wm Francis, tdwurd Cogue, Thomas Kelly, James Bergen, U. B Conuoilv, t>. Silberrad, John Orser, Goo. Weir, Kd wutd Gallagher. When the meeting wiik fully organized, twenty-six sue cessive shots were tired from a cannon, which was planted near the platform, in honor ol the twenty-six States. The Chaikman announced the next shot was in honor of Texus, and that it should he a roarer. Texas would soon form the twenty-seventh State in the Uuion, and they should therefore pay her due honors. The boom of the cannon at this tire reached through the city, and shook "Old Tammany," from which proudly floated, mast high, the American flag. The flag of the Union also waved from the Astor House and the Museums The Park fountain sparkled in the sunshine?the breezes swept gaily through the budding trees?the boys shouted and hurraed?the smoke ot the cannonading cleared away?and the Chairman called for three hearty cheers for Texas, which were given, and reverberated through the air. Three cheers were then given for the States ol the Union, three for President Tyler, and the crowd being then very hoarse, the hand struck up the "Star Spangled Banner." James Bi-.nor.rt, Ksq .here came forward, and said he had received a letter of apology from I'-h-ulcs A. Clinton, in which the writer expressed his cordial coucurrenoe in the objects of thu meeting, und was for immtdiaU annexation Mr. Bergen was in the act of reading the letter, when the plattorm gave wuy, and all who were upon it were precipitated, topsy-turvy, to the ground The reporter's table capsized, and one of our corps, who hud been on duty at the time, was pitched on his back, and would have been seriously injured, hud not Major Baldwin, who alteadv lay prostrate on the ground, broken the fall, the table ha vmg protected him from above. The gallanthiajor and the reporter, however, were soon rescued. Mr Bergen hud his knee severely lacerated, and other persons on the platform at the time were injured more or less. The "one star banner" proudly waved from a portion ol'the platform where it hail been fixed, "unhurt amid the wreck o! matter," and some remarked it was prophetic of the tri i umphant aud happy re-annexation with ourunconquered , and growing Union. Mr Bergen, notwithstanding the , severe accident he met with, still maunted the last plank ol the platform, and concluded the reading of the lettn saying at the same time that broken lilatforms, shattered , limbs, or the roar ot the cannon, had no terrors for hiin | in defence of Texas. The meeting here adjourned to the steps of the City , Hall, when, I H. P. Barber, Ksq., came forward and read thcreeoln. tions amid loud calls for "Mike Walsh." The resolutions went fully into the question of annexn- , tion?its advantages?and reviewed the whole hiRtorv of Texas, giving some very significant hints to Kngland on , the subject ol interference with Texas. | Mr. Barber, utter he had concluded reading the re- , solutions, said he did not think it necessary for him | to say a word in favor of them. The object they contain- , ed must be hailed by every American with feelings t-1 pride and satisfaction. The laud winch they were about , to annex to their country was known to them, and was rich m minerals , vegt tuldi ?, and had the most lertiic cli mate on the face of tne globe (Hero thocalls for "Mike i Walsh" were rejieated, and it was imposrihle to catch tinwords of the speaker.) When order was restored, he , continued 'The Texans struggled for their indepcr. , dence and they won a glorious victory; their indepen- , dence being recognized liy several of the nations. (Cheer- . and calls for "Mike Walsh '") He would ask upon what , grounds did persons object to the annexation of Texas to j the United 8tates ? It wus objected to by some on the ( grounds of its hearing uniin the ?bive nuuatinn T??a, would be in a much better condition thau she was at this , moment, by being attached to another country?it would < strengthen her position ; and it was manifest, that in relation to the slave question, whatever objection may be . urged against annexation on that ground, the Union had , |>ower to dispose of it. (The calls here were renewed for j "Mike Walsh," and some confusion prevailed in the , crowd) It had been said that the consent of Mexico j ought to be;solicited. Mexico ought not to lie asked for her , consent, as Texas had won her independence in 1821 ( The hrtory of that memorable struggle was fresh in the , recollection of all Santa Anna overrun the cauntiy, and \ his forces were broken down, when Texas won her inde ( pendetice and maintained it. This was recognized by the | free will ol'the people of the United States ? it was recog- , nized by France?by Kngland?and by Ood (Vociferous , cheers.)Tcxas now solicited to bo admitb-d into the Union, . an l the admission should he immediate, unconditional and eternal. (The cads for "Mike Walsh" were renewed, , when Mr. Barber concluded.) , A man of the name ol JsmksF Diusr.who appear- . ed. been crushed down under tlieplatlorm at its fall, was ( liera removed trom the Park on a litter, lie received some t sovere Internal injury. I Mr. here came forward, and said they were as- < sembled to-day lor the purpose ol discussing a question, j the magnitude and importance of which engaged the attention ol every friend of freedom and lover of his coun- p tiy in this free land. It was not a question of this day? , nor a question for themselves ; but it was a question lor i future generations, and one that would go dow 11 to poste- r rity with the names ol those who were engaged in It. The , splendid coumry they sought to annex to the Union, vi? c n part and portion r f their territory, and if severed fiom ? them, it would bo severing their right arm. lie knew ] that much had been said on the constitutional question f ol annexation ; but when it was considered that tin r United States had recognized the independence of Texas r lor over eight years, an.I that they were bound to Texas r by every tie that could bind sister to sister - or land to r land? thcy'were bound to aid Texas, and protect her from ,, any aggression that might be made upon her V (Tremendous cheering.) This attempt was made in the part of Kngland to aggrandise herself, aided by some of the domestic traitors ol the country who were p. lengued with the British government ; Out Amei ica would , talk out on this subject (Loud cheering ) If those mer- p ceuaries that were sent here from Kngland were sincere in their love for the slave, they would find sufficient objects for their sympathy in their own factories (cheers) ? where the white slaves ol Kngland were doomed to a sort of aerfship, that was inoie degrading in its character than any similar institution on the face of the globe.

If they say. 'Texas, ro-annex," Texas will he re-annexed. (Loud ttlieers.) The fiat of the people will go forth, and must be obeyed. (Renewed cheers.) What aro the objections igainst this re annexatien ? We have the two political bouses Bgainst it Henry Clay is against it, because he wants the consent ol Mexico. Mr. Van Buren rays that it is constitutional to annex Texas, hut no* till lie he electad President. (Laughter, and a voice called out, " Don't vou wish you may get it, Matty," followed by roars of laughter.) And this Is the amount of objection to annexation. As to the consent of Mexico, contended for by Mr. Clay, I affirm that Hint is nothing under the law of nations^ for if we want the consent of .Mexico, we must go beyond her, and get that of Spain. But I need not purme this fallacy farther, it is a mere quibble on the part of Mr Cl'y. [Loud cheers.)

The stability of the Union itself?the na;ional honor?justice-humanity?every consideration which should impel us to generous, wise and jusi action, lemands the immediate annexation of Texas to this republic.

Jethen said-It has been well said by one of the gentle nen who have addressed you, fellow citizens, on tliisoc asion, that freedom of opinion was the crowning glory if democratic institutions, and never has there been preented a crisis in Ameicun history, which calls more ourtly t' an that which hna now arrived for the exercise tilly and manfully, of that freedom of opinion, without Heard to parties, or the dictation of selfish individuals or liipirs This is not a matter that can be taken un like me of the many topics which makeup the materials o! inlitical warfare, which are presenting themselves very day, and are decided merely with reference to the uc.cess or defeat of political leaders, or the tricks of thi ir that party. (Cheers.) It is a question of such deep ,nd vital interest that the most gigantic minds of the age lave been fastened upon it for years. It is a qnpstion vbich involves not only the weal or wo of our country. mt the fate and welfare of unborn generations All that ve have to do. then, is not to consider whether the preent administration are nliout to reap any advantage from he nble and statesman-like manner in which the treaty las been negotiated?not whether ita ratification by the Senate will affect the success of Mr Clay or Mr Van Bu ren?not whether the British lion will roar with ragp or he Mexican eagle shriek in vengeance?but whether the measure itself is calculated to redound to the interest and lonor of our country ("bravo" and cheers! ?bv tending 0 perpetuate the Union and enhance its prosperity and leac.o.

Dreadful Accident on the Baltimore am p Piiii.adklphia Railroad.?^ e present below thi l proceedings of a meeting of passengers, on heart the train ot cars that left Baltimore on Saturda; evening, in relation to an unfortunate acciden 1 caused by a collision between the trains from eacl city, by which ineuns two persons were killed ant > several wounded. It will be seen that the railroat , company are severely censured for gross neglect o i duty. 1 At a meeting of the parsengcrs in the train of enr ' from Baltimore to Philadelphia, on the tripot Saturday evening, May 4, 1844, on motion of Gov Paine, of Vet mont, the Hon Daniel Webster was appointed Presi dent?the loilowing gentlemen were appointed Vici Presidents, viz ; Gov Paine, of Veimont; Justin Butter ' field, of Illinois; Ira Perley, ol New Hampshire; N. 8 r Howe, of Micliigan; r.itil 8 Preston, of Pennsylvania; 8 ' J. Wade, of Ohio; Andrew M. Burlier, of New York ; George W Coliamer, of Vermont; John T. Pitman, o ; Khode I land; II. R Latimer, of Georgia; J.N. M.Brew ' ?r, of Maine; Gen John C. Johnson, ol New York, am ' Josiah lligginson, of Tennessee; David Graham, of New j York, and Martin Durund, U 8 N , of Louisiana, wen 1 appointed Secretaries. The following statenn ut of facts was laid before the meeting and adopted, viz ;? A collision occurred on Saturday evening, the 4th ins? four miles to the wes'ward of Havre de Grace, betweei the train of railroad cars goingfrum flahimore on to Phi ladelphia, and that proceeding from Philadelphia to Haiti more, hy which two lives were lost, two persons seriously and it is supposed mortally wounded, and a number o passengers very severely injured The trains were tin tegular ones, the one h aving Philadelphia at 4 P. M ant! 1 tlie other leaving Baltimore at 7 P. M On enquiry intc ' the tarts from persons connected with the trains, it hat ' been ascertained that the Baltimore train was diitJr.ted tc proceed to Havre de Grace to meet the other, while no 1 corresponding order was given to the Philadelphia train to change the place of meeting from what 11 was the day 1 before, namely, Perryman's, about four miles west of the place of the accident. The accident would appear to b< ilie result of this neglect on the part of the directors of the line. It appears also that no lights were placed ir 1 trout ol cither of the trains, and that the bagitage can | were placsd in the rear of each train, which latter lacl exposed the passenger cars to the full force of the colli ' sien. ' The accident happe ned ten or fifteen minutes before tht rising of the moon. The reason given hy the conductoi for having no lamps to the respective trains, is that lie lamps were provided by the company for that purpose The Baltimore train contained about one hundred and seventy-five passengers, and the other train about thirty The appearance of the wreck of the locomotives and of the first of the Philadelphia cars which was torn frotr the wheels and raised so as to stand at an angle of thirty degrees upon the locomotive are truly appalling, and hut lor the interposition ot a merciful Providence, the injury and loss of life niUHt have been very great. In view of this calamity, and the causes which led tc it, the meeting adopted the following resolutions Resolved, That the collision referred to in the nreced ing statement, whs, in the judgment of this meeting, fit result of gross and highly culpable negligence on the pan ol the directors of the line in not causing their orders at to the place of meeting ef the cars to be distinctly mode known to their conductors, and that the omission to pro. vide lights upon the rirfpcctive trains, and the placing t.hi baggage cars in the reur instead of in front of the passim ger cars, was highly dangerous to human life, and de serves, in the opinion of the meeting, the censure of tin public. Kesolved, That in cases like the present, where t h< lives of persons are scorified and the safety of the public endangered, the severest rigor of the law as well by criminal prosecution of the guilty parties as by an exem plary civil redress a ainst the Company, should bs put ir requisition, as the only means by which the protection o! human life can he secured, and the recurrence of similai criminal culpability prevented. Resolved, That if any of the persons injured are not in circumstances to enable them to prosecute for the injury the members of this meeting will hold themselves respon sible to render them any reasonable assistance in the fur therance of the object. Resolved, That the proceeding* of this meeting b? signed by the officers of the meeting, and published DANIEL WEBSTER, President Harlem Railroad.?Many complaints are mode tliat a sufficient number of cars are not put on this road on Sundays, to accommodate the crowds who go out to Nowlan's at Yorkville, Harlem, and other places on that line. There is also a want ol regularity about the starting of the trains, personbeing obliged to wait at the intermediate stations for sometimes more than an hour. These very proper grounds ol complaint should lie removed in future. At each station, there should certainly be an additional agent to preserve some degree ol order, and lacilitate passengers in getting out and into the cars. As at present managed, it is mattei of surprise that many accidents ?lo not occur on this road every Sunday. New City Arsenal.?The bill before the Legislature of this State for the construction of a new State Arsenal in this city, has at length become ti law, through the energies of Commissary Genera Storms, and nothing now remains to prevent the immediate commencement of this necessary work excqpt the action of Congress to appropriate moneys lor the purchase of the land belonging tc ihis State at the Narrows, on Staten Island, which the government has been desirous to possess ir ' order to construct a suitable tort and battery foi ihe defence of that inlet to our harbor. The location of the arsenal is to be selected by the Commist-Hiy General and the Commissioned of the Land Office; and the work is to be performed by contract, subject to their decision. The inarble for its construction will be supplied from the Sim Sing State Prison, at the rate sold to other purchasers, and the expense of building is not to exceed the.amount ol money received by the Strut for the sale of the land at Staten island. It is tr he presumed that the present location on Centre street will he retained.
