NEW YORK HERALD. New York, Saturday, May 18, 1844. The Foreign *fw? Etptctrd. The Britannia steamer, now out fourteen days, is expected every hour in Boston. She may have arrived last night-she may arrive to-day?but at whatever hour she reaches Boston, we have an Express ready to start at once, with the news lor this office, front which we shall issue an Extta as soon as it cornea to hand. We understand that thru exprcMies besides ours iiuciiu iu suiri irom iiosion on tne arrival 01 me boat. It will be a pretty race. Who beta on the Herald 1 and how much 1 Mokk Opinions on Annexation.?General Cans and the Hon. Levi Woodbury have both come out lor immediate annexation of Texas. The briet and clear letter of General Cass will be found in our postscript, and that of Mr. Woodbury will be republished in a few days. Tcim l|iu?tloii?Hrllli(ereiit Operation* against Mexico. The intelligence which we published yesterday, relative to the position of the Texas question before the Senate at Washington, and also the disclosures made by the President in a secret message to the Senate, giving a view of certain belligerent operations already commenced against Mexico, produ- ! cad u great deal of feeling and a great deal of sensibility in the commercial circles throughout this city, yesterday. The position of this question, not only in reference to parties at Washington, and the contest for the next Presidency, but also in connection with our relations with Mexico, begins, indeed, to attract a much greater degree of attention than we could have previously expected to be exhibited at this period of the discussion. It appears that the Texas treaty is to be discussed with open doors. So the Senate has decided. This public discussion of one of the most important question* that has ever been brought before Congress, or the people of this country, will create a great excitement throughout the Union, and command the nttention of the whole civilized world. It is a crisis in the history of this vast liepublic?a step, an important step, in her progress to a dominion greater than has ever been attained by any nation, republic, or monarchy. The discussion of this question involves the movement, the power, the progress, and the ultimate destiny of the Anglo-Saxon race of this republic over the whole of this great continent from the Isthmus of Darien to the North Pole. It also involves our relations with the two great powers of Eastern Europe?France and England; and may affect the sentiments of the whole civilized world towards the United States. In an internal point o' view, within the boundaries of our own republic the discussion will create a greater effervescence among parties, and produce a more rapid and rising excitement in the ensuing contest for the Presidency, than we ever expected to see in existence. In fact, all the previous questions which agitated parties, appear to have been forced into abeyance, into alter oblivion, by the power, momentum, and vas interests involved in the annexation of Texas, and in the long vista of similar movements to which that only opens the door. In another aspect this question is also very important?of immediate and pressing importance to the commercial and financial interests of the country. It appears that the President, of his own authority, has ordered an "army of observation," consisting of eleven hundred infantry troops and several companies of dragoons, all under the command of Gen. Gaines, to the borders of the Sabine; and that he has also issued orders for a portion of the naval force, consisting of seven or eight vesselsof war,to be stationed in the Gulf of Mexico, in the immediate neighborhood of Vera Cruz, for the purpose of pre velum* uit* mexicans trom transporting troops. These movements are belligerent in their aspect and may lead to mini> very important result*, either in the conduct of Mexico for peace or lor war The power and authority of the President in making this disposition of the troops and of the navy, and presenting this belligerent attitude, will, no doubt, be severely canvassed in the discussion in the Senate. The effect of such a movement on Mexico may also be great, especially if the report be correct, as we have reason to believe it is, that a new revolution is in progress, and that the power of Santa Anna is shaking to its foundation. In these circumstances, the attitude assumed by the President may have the effect of intimidation, and, in conjunction with that produced by the appearance of the French fleet off Vera Cruz, may bring the Texas question and Texas annexation to a peaceable close with the ready consent of Mexico. But the very circumstances which are likely to bring about this result, may call forth the interference of England, and a foundation be laid for heart-burnings, jealousies, and rivalries that may end?no one can tell where or how. It will thus be seen, from the brief view which we have given our readers of the position of the Texas question in the Senate, throughout the country, in Mexico, and its tamifications with France and England, "that we are in a verv interestine crisis?a crisis that will require vast tact, great skill, and wonderful delicacy, on the part of all entrusted with the management of the national affairs. The debate which has just commenced, or will commence about this time, in the U. S. Senate, will be the most important we have had for yearsinvolving in its results the great question not only of Texas annexation, but of peace or war with Mexico, our relations with European powers, and the general policy of this country and of this race to widen and spread out the power of this empire beyond its present limits, to the uttermost extent of tins great continent. Every account from Washington, from Mexico, and from England, on all these points, will, therefore, be looked for with the greatest anxjety. The Repeal. Mania.?The recent events in this city and in Philadelphia, particularly the election here and the great moral triumph over O'Connellism in ihis mighty metropolis, have completely quieted the repealers, and all those who have been plundering the poor Irish of their hard earnings, in order to send them to Ireland and keep up tile agitation, and distress, and trouble in that glorious hut unhappy island. Hut if dead here, it seems that the repealers are all alive and kicking in Huston. According to the Boston papers, the repealers there have sent #5<HX> to swell the O'Connell lund, all ol which O'Connell will, of course,requite by another violent attack on the institutions, morals, and everything else of this country?that being the usual receipt in full that he makes lor eve. ry remittance from this side the water! More Boot-Bi.ack Criticism.?We are sorry to see that our venerable cotemporary of the " Auro nt uescenos irom imp language ol gentlemen wlipn speaking ol distinguished artists, and adopts the language of discarded waiters from respectable hotels and kicked-out scullions from Christian kitchens In the paper alluded to of yesterday, we find a little paragraph, saying that Ole Hull and Vieux Temps are in town seeing which can fiddle up most money, admiration and putts, and that it is supposed that Ole Bull will he vanquished, and so on and so on Buch stulf may do very well to amuse laundresses and chambermaids, and such characters, the associates of discarded waiters, but is not fit for the columns ol any newspaper pretending to decency or refinement. Imi-bach.mknt ok Captain Tyi-kr ?Charles King calls out lustily for the impeachment of Capt.Tyler, because he has sent an army to the borders of Texas, and a naval force before V^ra Crux. Certainly let's have him impeached kt once. John Jones, of the Madi^mian, declares it "either Mr. Tyler or Mr. ClHy will b? elected next President" Who doubts it 1 \ - ? Chevalier Wikoff's Movements.?The distinguished refutation enjoyed by Chevalier Wikofl, duririit 111> orHi.i oarxr of phiinv RIshIpi- in this i country, and particularly the immense (rlat of its termination, and the extraordinary " vigor," with which he " refused plump to marry Fanny Elssler" at the close of his career in London, have made him the marked man of the present age. Such a sensation has he created, that we are every day overwhelmed with such inquiries us?" Where is Chevalier Wikotfl"?" What is Chevalier Wikoti doing 1"?" Is he still honoring, blessing, and distinguishing New York by his presence 1"? " Has he yet commenced the great moral movement of the age 1"?" lias he begun those mighty theatrical and literary relorms, that are the legitimate offspring of his extraordinary mind 1" We believe we must make some reply to them, and furnish some information relative to the Chevalier's movements, in order to gratify the intense anxiety of the public?the extreme curiosity of the /iguruntfs of all the theatres?the eager desires of all the barbers, boot-blacks and waiters round about town?not forgetting the " waiters at Long's Hotel." According, then, to the most authentic information, Chevalier Wikoff spent the other morning at the Society Library Room?, in Broadway, lie walked through them with a great deal of importance?eyed them through the big white opera glass?and pronounced the eulogistic opinion that " it was really a very respectable sort of an establishment, if it hud but a restaurant under ground, in the manner of the fashionable club-houses in London." " I believe," added the Chevalier, " that this is indeed a rather nice bit of a concern. and I shall have to purchase a few shares." There is net the least doubt that it the Chevalier would purchase a few shares in that admirable institution, he wruld introduce a great change in the rooms. On the present occasion we understand, that when it was whispered about that the Chevalier was present, every old gentleman, and every young literateur, who the moment before had been quietly perusing their papers, pamphlets and reviews, dropped them immediately and directed their eyes to the illustrious hero of the ballet and the figurantes. " Wikofi ! Is it possible 1" exclaimed one eldetly gentleman? " My conscience !" exclaimed another?" What a remarkable man!" said a third?"In the name of all that is decent," said a fourth, "I hope he's not coming here again !" But the chevalier quite un moved wa'ked around?glanced at the files? observed that all the magazines and reviews were in their places?und departed with the big white opera glass and white kid gloves in regular order. In the evening he made his appearance at Palmo'* Theatre, and occupied a very marked and distinguished position in the private box of the beautiful Borghese, who attended the splendid concert of Vieux Temps?the Belgian monarch of the violin. Here again the big white opera-glass and the white kid gloves were in requisition, and the chevalier out-talked every one ot the admirers of Borghese, driving them completely off' the field, just as he had so often done in the extraordinary campaigns in the Fanny Elssler career in this country. Here again the sensation created by his presence was great?the people wondered, and stared, and looked, nnH pyplnlmprl unrl urprn Inof in nrlmirofinri at fKic great production of tlie age. This is merely the commencement of his acquaintance with the beautiful Borghese ; but we really hope and trust that it will not terminate as did the immortal campaign with the beautilul Fanny Elssler?"Fanny, the stupid ! thought 1 would marry her, but I refused her plnmp?we quarrelled and separated?after spending 10,000!" These are the last movements, we believe, of the chevalier in this city ; and we are thus particular in giving them in order to satisfy the longings and cravings of the .fixurantra? the newsboys?the barbers?the boot blacks?and last, not least, his former cronies?"the waiters at Long's Hotel." Out Rm.i ?When is Ole Bull going to give us his concert ! Why won't he give us something original ! Why don't he compose some touching bit of musie on the Niagara Falls or the beautiful Park Fountain! We expect something very dashing from him in a few days. P. S.?Since the above was written, we are happy to learn that Ole Bull has procured the requisite bail, by depositing the lull amount in the bank, and will be able to leave town for Boston by the boat this afternoon?so we shall not hear him at present at all, till his return from that city. The Bostonians will have the first chance this year of hearing the greatest genius on the violin that ever visited this country. Benefit to Mil. Simpson, of the fpark.?We are glad to perceive that a benefit is about to be got up for Mr. Simpson, of the Park. He certainly needs one. He is an amiable and honorable mun n n/t L. C.-~. 1 nefit. But those who place the benefit on the grounds of his superior management of the Park Theatre for the las* five years, put it on rather a frsil foundation. Mr. Simpson, in the good old quiet times, when he had no rivals, was an excellent manager. Hut in these days of excessive competition, he appears to have lost all energy, ta* lent, spirit, everything. Let him, then, have a benefit, and a thumping one?for he needs it. More Locusts.? We understand that a new Hock of one hundred lawyers has just been manufactured; and will be ready by the beginning of next week, like a flock of locusts to prey on every green , tree, or more properly speaking, on every green I man. System or Memory?Goi'raud and Branch.? By an advertisement in this day's paper, it will be found that Professor Branch proposes to give a lecture on the science of Memory, on Monday next, i.t which he will show up Professor Gouraud from top to bottom. He gave a lecture the other evening, and .satisfied his audience lhatGour&ud is no great things of a philosopher after all. ?_______ j New York Pilots.?We cheerfully publish the I following. We do so to show that the restoration was not made by the Commissioners, but by the Mayor and Judge Ulshmfler. On the annexed paper* or appeal from the decision therein stated, made by the pilot commissioners on the 3d day of April, 1844, in the case of John Maginn, revoking his license for neglect of the pilot law, in reference to keeping the journal ot the pilot boat Jus K Davidson, the subscribers, Mayor of the city of New Y ork, and first Judge of the Common Pleas of said city of New Vork, after examination and considering said appeal, do order, adjudge and decide, that from and after the filteenth day ol May instant, the revocation aforesaid shall cease, and the said John Maginn shall then have his license restored to him. The order appealed from D confirmed, so far as its operatoin is concerned, to the said fifteenth of May instant, aftar which said day it is to have no further operation. Dated May 13th, A. D. 1844 ROBT. II. MORRIS, Mayor. M. UL8HORFFRR, First Judge. This is nil right and pr?per. The suspension, however, never should have occurred. Danibi. Wf.r.sTKR is coming here next week to argue a case before the Supreme Court, in relation to some claim of the ( orporation. He will draw a jrrpat audience?probably a bolter one than Mr. Macready does. I'lCTT'HK .IirtKJMCR Cl.o< K, iVc., AT ' ill.PtN's Nk\VH RoOM, ExcHANOB, iik1.0N?JlM<? ro MaOA.M Sl'tton.?

We understand there are sot many tickets Iclt. Let all who have not seen them lose no time in deciding, as the beauty and their great value render them desirable to every one keeping house. StKAM Still' lllliEDNii t'uriiuin Tiulliinu uu 11u.l I'roni Boston on the lHtli met., with the muils for Halifax and Liverpool. She curried out7<> passengers nnd un r.xtrn Isrge semi-monthly mail.? Among the passengers is Ex-< lovernor Davis. , I Mork Liuki.s?Moses Y. Bkach again.?Ye?. terday 1 discovered that Moses Y. Beach, witt i any provocation or cause, liaa again published ; another vulgar and atrocious libel against tny wife and family?and has been circulating it secre.ly and clandestinely throughout the city and country. It is culled h "Life of James Gordon Bennett," but it is put forth by Beach without either the name of printer or publisher. I have, however, live or 1 six witnesses of the fact, fixing the publication upon him. To show the wickedness of this man, he actually sent a coov of the libel to mv house, durintr mv absence, in order to annoy and insult Mrs. B., who is yet in a very weak state of health, being just recovering from having given birth to a young child. The man who can conceive and execute such a deed is capable of anything. Men and editors may tight and wrangle us much as they please. I care not what is said of myself, but it is a new mocie of warfare to insult, lacerate, und libel, in the most utrocious manner, a pure and spotless wife, and her innocent and unoffending offspring. I shall now bring this Beach at once before the tribunals of justice, and ascertuin whether there is that even-handed degree of justice before a jury ol the civil courts, which could not be found elsewhere at a previous time. I also find that Burgess iV Stringer, bookselleis, in Broadway, have issued the same libels against my family. I shall also bring them, and al1 such others, before the tribunals of justice. It is lull time to put a stop to such infamy. The Sheriff's Jury.?A most atrocious attack ?oo uittuc uic uiucr uuy in dcuc/i ? ow/t ujiuii mc ehuracter, integrity, and honor of the Sheriff's Jury, who happened to find a verdict of #2?100 against Beach for one of his libels. It is the duty of the Grand Jury to look at this matter, and see if they cannot devise a mode of defending those institutions on which civil liberty and right are founded. This attack was a most atrocious, wicked, unjust, and unprincipled one, and ought not to be passed over lightly. Tyler Conventions.?A notice calling upon the friends of the administration to meet for the purpose of appointing delegates to the Baltimore Convention, of May 27th, will be found in our advertising columns. All those interested in this movement will govern themselves accordingly. Found Drowned.?The body of an unknown man was found yesterday at the Narrows, where it had floated ashore. In one of his pockets was a handkerchief, piarked H. W. Huenis. The body is in the possession of the coroner. Recreation.?The new and splendid steamboat Salmon makes an excursion up the East River to New Rochelle to-morrow. Should the weather be pleasant, it will undoubtedly be a very pleasum trip. For particulars, see advertisement in another column. Italian upera.?i lie Uarbiere di Siviglia presented last evening a very interesting feature in the dibtU of Signor Santtni, in the part of Figaro. It is rather a delicate matter to give a decided opinion of a singer after a single hearing, as the nervousness, inseparable from a first appearance, commonly prevents more or less the full display ol vocal powers, particularly in a rdle which pre-eminently requires the highest degree of abandon and spirit, and which had found in De Begnis a superior interpreter. Santini's voice is very pleasing and flexible, but lacks power; his Figaro was better played than sung, although the vocal part of it contained several very good points. The parlando passages were given with much ability, and were frequently received by the audience with encouraging plaudits. The largo al fartoturn was rather dry, it we except the closing part of it, and prefer De Begnis, in spite of the antiquarian complexion of his voice, and his inferiority in the obligato pirowltes. The duett all " idea di metallo, succeeded admirably, and clearly shows that Santini is no novice in the Opera. On the whole his d6but gave much satisfaction without presenting something extraordinary. Of the merits of the other performers, we already have so much *>k>-ii thai nothing remains to be said, except tiiut B >rghese was in splendid voice and humor, and lirvrr sung the 1! osina better Signor Sanquirico, as Bartholn. H rM?rf#?nf /?i.rnr/> unrl wunti.iml an encore : he is decidedly a first rate bufro, a rare singer, and one of the most pleasing Hnd ell'eciive comics of the stage, and richly deserves the rapturous applause which the highly delighted audience bestowed upon him. Perozzi's superiority as Almaviva, is well known and much appreciated. The house was one of the fullest of the season, and the applause hearty and frequent. Santini makes his second appearance on Monday as Kiccardo, in the Puritani, winch will afford un opportunity of judging him thoroughly. New Temperance Order.?At a meeting of the United Brothers of Temperance of New York, the following gentlemen were unanimously elected officers for the ensuing six months:? Hon. James Harper, President; George Phillips Parker, 1st Vice President; James A. Cotlin, 'J<1 do; jaines A. Houston, 3d do ; F.dward llownes Connery, Corresponding Secretary ; Arthur N. Sherman, Recording do ; Jami s De Gray, Assaistant do ; George I*. Gordon, Financial do ; Washington A. Bartlett, Treasurer ; Daniel Barnes, Marshal , Samuel 1).

Foster, indicted lor false pretences in obtaining goods trom Messrs.Carew k Huntindon, resumed from yesterday. A letter was read from Mr. W. Camp of Utira to Mr. Darling .of this city, highly recommending the accused, and stating that he had given Foster $lftOO on leaving his employ. Born B.

The notes and stock put in lmsi ness by him when he joined Foster, was considered to be worth $1000 by Foster ; Foster ftirnishe 1 some articles in stork in trade which he valued at $600, but put in no mo ney. Witness did not think the vulue thereof half that sum ; some goods, dry goods and groceries were sent to the store in the spring by Foster from New York. The amount of goods sent by Foster to the storo at West Leyden, witness thought might tie worth $1000 ; witness and Foster bought with the store a grist and saw mill, for which they were to pay $2000; paid $300, and then were dispossessed in consequence of not being uble to fulfill tin contract. Heard that Foster was buying large bills ol goods in New York; made enquiry and found a considerable part of them at his private residence in Utica in Der last. William A. Dahliiso was cal)pd for the delcnce.--He stated that he sold to the firm of Foster Si Belknap aliout $1700 worth ol Dry < foods upon credit; notes w ere given, and one half thereof remain unpaid, as they were protested for non-payment Witness went on to I'tica and discovered that a large amount of goods had been sild at auction at a great sacrifice in order to raise mousy, in consequence of losses sustained by him in his business.? Mr. Hay, a sheriff, told witness that the property wai sold to pay a judgment confessed to Messrs. Madison 8i Hoolit tle, Counsellors at Law. Foster confessed his indebted ness in New York to lie $7000, and that he had disposed ol property to the amount of $11,000, sold at sacrifice.

The case for the prosecution was ably conducted bj Messrs. Jewett and Htoughton, the lormerof whom sum med up the case. He was responded to by Mr. Bixby, wh< appeared tor the prisoner, and it went to the jury under I clear charge from the Recorder, who fully explained th< law regulating what should he termed false pivtence.

Presuming that a clergyman would not take a pocket book under any other circumstances than with an intention to return it to its lawful owner, the fraud by the dropper was rather severe.

The iormer were examined yesterday evening, and all passed : the examination of the latter will be continued this evening. Circuit Court. Before Judge Kent. May 17.?John Jiwrell vi. the Chenango Mutual Insurunce Company.?This was an action to recover $1400, the amount of a policy of insurunce, effected by the plaintiff in delcndunt's office- the plaintiff was owner ol the bur kept at the National Opera House, in Church St., in 1841, and on the ftth of December, that year effected the policy ol insurance upon which the action was brought on three shnres owned by liirn in the theatrical stock, and on his lurniture, and stock of fruit uud liquors. On the 2tith ot May, 1812, the house with its contents were burned, .shortly after the commencement of the action, the case wus referred to arbitration, and an award made in favor of the plaintiff? the award was set aside and the case sent down to be tried by a jury. The delence was want of compliance with the conditions of the policy of insurance,

the nlaintttf not having accurately described the locality of the property, the alleged worthlessness of the plaintills three shares in the stock of the Theatre, and that he did not disclose as he was hound to do. that the nronertv insured was subject to incumbrances. The Court directed u non suit on the ground of want of accuracy in the description of the property. Mr. .Sherwood for plaintiff?Mr. Stewart for defendant New Jersey State Convention.?On Wednesday afternoon, the committee to whom was referred the subject of proceeding in the business of the convention, reported in favor ofappointing committees on the following subjects:?1.

Future amendments and alterations of the Constitution- 7. Whatever is not included in the foregoing? H. The expediency of adopting a bill o< rights and privileges. Which report was adopted with but one dissenting voice. The committees were ordered to consist of seven each, except the bill of rights, to consist of eight; which will include every member of the convention. Season in Canada.?The weather has continued rainy and unsettled since the Ud instant. On the night of the 11th, there was another thunder storm, being the third or fourlh since the beginning of April. This morning the weather is clear and cold ; there was frost last night, sufficient to harden the surface of fresh tilled moist ground. Agricultural operations have been retarded by the weather, particularly the sowing in low lands ; but ulthough little ploughing was done last (all, field work is still in advance of common years. Vegetation is also more forward. The tops ol several of the forest trees are become green, and the flowers of the early wild fruit trees are just opening. The fields have a rich verdure ; the gardens have suffered very little and partake of the torwarduess of the season. There are pease three or four nkA.,n ! ?#*. .

Caure?too intimate with A's wife for his personal comfort. Araunemeiita. A Crowded House is no novelty at the Chatham | Theatre, and as Burton, the most funny of all the race of tun-makers, is now in |>osscssion of the board and the love of the people, it is highly important that places should be secured early, or an almost certain disappoint ment must ensue. A most gloriously successful week closes to-night with the sterling old English comedy ol Speed the Plough, in which Burton plays Farmer Ashfield, Conner Bob Handy, Mrs. Preston Susan, and all the other characters capitally cast. Miss Reynolds sings her "Fine Young English GentlemanWinans a new Medley?Miss Gannon appears in a new Pas Seul, and Brooks in a new comic Pas. The whole performance closes with?for the Necond time?the historical domestic drama of Pat Lyons, in which Miss Reynolds, Mrs. Green, and Mr. Scott play so capitally. En passant?we would, it only for information, enquire oi the Manager why he does not now, pending the rage for Shakespeare, put for wurd Mr. Conner in some of the readings of the great hard. What w-ith his inanly and commanding figure, lofty bearing?full, musical voice?and, withal, a tulent second to no living actor?he might in Richard, Othello, Hamlet. Macbeth, Coriolanus, and other characters, cope successfully with Macready or Hamblin, and at the same time please the thousands who are ever ready to award the mead of praise to great and rising talents. Raymond tV Weeks' Manaqeiue, corner of 8tu street and Bower v.?The constant succession of fashionable visitors to this splendid pavilion is the best evidence of the popularity of an exhibition, eminently calculated to improve the humnn mind. The arrange merits fire imon 11 uraU rif thp Viicrlteat nrtlnr in Tinint < accommodation and personal security. The exertions i.f Herr Driesbach need no comment, and nothing is now left to the public but to embrace the few remaining hour, of their stay amongst us, which we regret to say, is lirni ted to this day. Such enterprise and lihekamty aa the Manager of the New Vork Museum manifests, must meet with a corresponding reward. He has, at a great expense, ha>l painted a large picture representing the burning ol St. Michael's Church, Philadelphia,to increase his already extensive list of attractions. What with the Giantess.

Owners of real estate would be mo benefitted by this road than another class, and yet they are the last to take hold of it. The above list looks very well lor a beginning, but it requires an immense sum of money to finish the work. Most of the rail roads of this country have been built by subscriptions from the middling classes. Capitalists lay still until public improvements are made, and then they step in, become}large purchasers if the works prove profitable, ami take out of the hands of those whose energy and perseverance perfected them, all the works of real utility.? Railroads in this country must eventually be very valuable and productive property. The monthly receipts of nearly every road in the country in activo operation show s great increase since last year RF.cr.irTi or the Mohawk and Hunsort Railroad. Amount received from passengers for April, '43, $4037 60 " " 1844, 7664 93 Increase for April, 1844 $3,637 43 The increase this year, since Jan. 1, on the receipts for the same period lust year, reaches nearly one hundred per cent. Kastorn manufacturing stocks have improved verrmuch since the new tariff bill was laid on the table. The great abundance of money, and the difficulty experienced in finding proper investments, induces capitalists to take hold'of every stock holding out the prospect of making fair dividends. Railroad stocks have for a long time been great favorites with the Bostonians. Manufacturing stocks have, until very recently, been avoided on account of the doubt and uncertainty in relation to the disposal of the new tariff bill. We now quote Amoskeag Manufacturing stock at 3H per cent advance; Merrimac, 38 do; Lawrence, 9 do; Massachusetts Mills, 8; Boott, 13; Suffolk, 13; Tremont, 13; York, 18; Hamilton, 11, (dividend od); Middlesex, 14; Appleton,8; Perkins, 8, and Dwight 6 do do; Nashua, $630 for $600, and Locks and Canals, $995 for $500. The tariff' question is laid on the shelf for at least two years. Kvery industry knows its position for at least that time, and this fact alone is sufficient to ensure th nrosneritv of all classes. AH those interests, incidentally protected by tbe present tariff, must become mora firmly established during the time the permanency of this act is ensured. All parties within the next two years, must become better acquainted with the faults of the act now in force, and be bettor able, when the subject again comes before Congress, to propose just alterations and modifications. It is necessary that all our laws regulating trade and commerce should remain in existence a longer period than they do, so that the people can better understand their provisions and effects. A law that would work injuriously for a year or two, would, in five or ten, proro beneficial. Laws that require a complete revolution in commercial affairs to establish, must have a permanency, or the effects are annulled. The present tariff'has been in existence hardly two years. We are yet unable to point out all its defects,aiid until they are known, they cannot lie thoroughly investigated and,remedied. Hasty and premature legislotion requires repeated alterations, so that the people know not what to expect or what to depend upon. Capitalists will not employ their resources in an industry subject to the movements of political parties for its success. The present prosperity of the country has been produced by a variety of causes. The little confidence placed in the permanence of the tariff', undoubtedly had its influence in preventing the existing state of affairs. The agitation of this question, in (Congress, ever since the commencement of the present session, has also had its influence in depreciating the value of manufacturing stocks, and restricting the movements of the manufacturers. The fears that have so long operated on their minds have been removed, and confidence being again established, wo see its immediate effect in the increased activity of this blanch of business, and the advancement in the vnlue of manufacturing stocks.
