NEW YORK HERALD. Jftw York, Wednwdty, Mmy a?, UM, The Whig Gathering at Trenton To-lhy? Mr. Wch?lfr again In the Klelil. A good deal of public attention baa been drawn to the great mass meeting of the whigs of New Jersey at Trenton to-day, for the purpose of commencing the game for the next Presidency. This interest has been created chiefly by the invitation sent to Mr. Webster, soliciting his attendance, and his acceptance of the same, which lias given the public reason to believe that he will make one of Ins great speeches on the occasion, und give a new impulse to the contest, such as will luevitably produce a revolution in tin* present political crisis. We have sent our unequalled "coriw" to Trenton, for the purpose of giwng a report of Air. Webster's speech ; and will, us usual, give it verbatim, in tomorrow morning's pj|>er. The appearance of Air. Webster on this occasion, is an event of more than ordinary importance. The present circumstances of the country?the re lative position of parties?the whole aspect of the contest?are more novel?exhibit fresher features? display mure outre points, than have been presented at any political crisis since the revolutionary period. The political contests of the last sixteen years have been conducted in reference to various internal measures, which have, in the course of events, now become almost altogether " obsolete ideas." These are the tarill and national bank questions. It is possible, however, that in the piesent contest, one of these topics may be resuscitated, and instead of an "obsolete idea," it may re-acquire the freshness of a new idea, and be igain passed upon by the people ia the ensuing election. It is very evident, that the national bank question, although it may have been laid aside latterly, will be revived duriny the present contest, and all those financial measures connected with it, again come up for discussion.? The old argument iu favor of a political bank?its utility and necessity in regulating the exchange and the currency?has, indeed, been blown to the winds by experience; so that now the argument takes a new form, and many contend for the bank, not to regulate, urn to innate tne currency?to raise prices ?to give new values to old stocks?to bring back, in a word, those glorious times of 1834, 115,*3G. In this aspect of this ijuestion, a powerful effort, originating in New York, Philadelphia, Hoston, Haltitnore, New Orleans, and the inferior commercial cities, will undoubtedly be made during the present electiou. to give a strong and overwhelming support to Mr. Clay, in the hope that these hopes may be fulfilled, such a bank instituted, and such financial measures adopted, as may revive the credit of the States,and increase the valuesofeverylhing tiiroughout the country. And it is highly probable that this movement will be successful. Then there is another ipiestion on which Mr. Webster may touch, and that is?international tariff treaties?a subject which was started by Mr. Webster himself, and which he lias made his own. He commenced the agitation of this subject at haltimore?followed up the movement at Rochester ?and dropped it about a year ago. Now, however, it is highly probable that he will revive it, as it has naturally forced itself on the public mind, in conaeouence of the present position of uflairs beween this country and the continent of Europe, and the practical commencement of the system of international tarilf regulations, in the treuty recently negotiated by Mr. Wheaton with the Gerinan Zollverein. This is, indeed, u most important subject, and one on which Mr. Webster's views are looked for with much anxiety. It has already alarmed the British Government, and nothing, indeed, has ever yet been started, which promises to interfere so extensively and effectively with the continued sway of England. This system of international tariff treaty is, indeed, the only just and permanent ground on whiclfa tariff cac be established, because it unites on n common basis the manufacturing and the agricultural and commercial interests. Here then is another question? that of internal improvement?and the great industrial movement of the age. On thesejpoints, also, it is not unlikely that Mr. Web^r may dwell at greater or less leng'h. It is evident that the great movements of this age may properly be divided two branches, particularly in this country. The first is the great movement for the extension and security of human liberty. This has a tendency to destroy all monopolies of power and dominion, and to give every man the same natural share in the organization and control of civil government. This movement has long since reached its climax in the United States. mis as an ansrraenon, was tne greai movement principle which organized and kept together the great band, collected by " Old Hickory," in 1M2H. Hut it has come to its close in this country, so far as individual liberty is concerned. It cannot be extended further. Hut there is another movement, which is only in its birth, both in this country and in Europe, and which is destined to change the whole face of civil society. That is?the great industrial movement of the age. This is the movement which has for its objects? the building of cities?the construction of railroads and canals?and the management and direction ot all those movements, commercial, agricultural and manufacturing, in which human energy and enterprise are engaged. This movement the whigs have made their own, in consequence of their connection with the financial institutions and manufacturing interests of the day. And probably this circumstance alone will constitute two-thirds of the means of the triumph which they expect in the ensuiag election. When to ull these considerations which we have 11 us glanced at, we udd, the peculiar situation ol the country?the revival of trade?the opening of a new vista crowded with features and revolutions - -all can see that the prospect tends to give great brightness to Mr. Clay's hopes, and invests with peculiar interest this movement of Mr. Wehster ut the commencement of the contest. Chancellor Kent vs. Captain Tyler.?An impertinent Wall street editor having sent un inquiry to Chancellor Kent, relative to the recent Texas business of the Captain, has brought out the following reply from the amiable Chancellor: " New Y ork, 2d Union Square, May 21, 181a. Dear Sir t acknowledge your favor ot yesterday, and I take the liberty to refer you to Story's Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States, vol 2d, from pago 2/12 to p. 27J, or () to sot, for all the authentic information and authority that may tie wanting You will perceive that the Impeachment Power over'high crimes and misdemeanors' is very liroad, as defined and practised under the sanction of tlio < ouimon Caw, by which it is to tie construed and governed. I think there can tie no doubt that the enonnous abuses and stretch of power by Presi lent Tyler, afford ample materials for the exercise ot the power of impeachment, and an imperative duty in thu House ol Representatives to put it in practice. Yours respectfully, JAMES KENT." i,i... u.u K- ........ > . a formal impeachment of the Captain. Vet it n said that though nearly both the parties in tin House of I!epresentatives think so, they will no <lo their duty and impeach the Captain,because the Captain can chonktheni oil'with "spoils." If tha be the motive, we think that the House of Repre sentativea are more guilty than the Captain, anc should not only he impeached but kicked out oi office. ' ?nly think ot sueh a confession cominp Iroin respectable Whig or Democratic members! The Natives in tiie Ninth Ward.?Tin iiuiit" mt- >i i>n ir 11 hi ? in this w-iru, 10 trie grea delight of the locoforoH, w!io have kindly offeree terms to them proposing a union. This has pro duced an explosion, with what result we don't ye know. We are very sorry to see all this squabbling if the natives would inarch on as one man, ant give the reform they promised, and get rid of ihos* t noisy, brawling office-seekers, it \v mid lie bctte tor them. I''s Oi'kra Hot'sr.?We learn that th night t>f the 7rh of .fune will be the Isst of th- sef son. Hignor De ilegnis takes a benefit on the ?tl t . Another Chcrch and State Movement.?We observe that our old frieud Joe Snub, ihe Mormon Prophet, has taken a leaf out of Bishop Hughes' book. Joe bus determined to orgunixe his church not only iu Nuuwio but throughout the country, as it political party, with ltimself as the candidate for the Presidency, having resolved to run on his own hook hereafter,and thu.Vuniling the Mormon church and the Mormon political party in one strong unchanging, unchangeable movement. Joe affects no scruples of conscience about this matter, and comes out frankly like a mau, thus being mftch more, candid and upright than the Bishop in his dialectics. We think thai Bishop Hughes, in compliment to Joe the Prophet, ought to take a leal out of Joe's hook, and at once organize his church iitto a party, himself running lor President or Pope, just as lie pleases. If we're to have an American Poi>e, Bishop Hughes will do us well as any other man we can think of at present. And in truth he wont have much trouble in organizing his church, for they're already organized us " Ke|?eal Blubs," and all he will have to do, will be to substitute for "repeal clubs" the title of " Pupal clubs"or "Pre sidential clubs." Apropos.?Since we are on this puioi we may as well give a few more specimens of the manner in which (lie independent press speak of the Bishop's letter : ? (Krom the Portland Daily American.| Bishop Hughes, cf the Catholic Church, New York, having been tor several years "the best abused" Bishop in the I'niteJ Wtates, has published a very long and able letter to the public in sell defence, lie goes into Bsnnxit, of the Herald, terribly, Bennett will lie made agreat man of yet. | Ktom the I'ottsville Miner's Journal ] Bishop Hughes has addressed a long letter to Mayor Harper of New York, accompanying a letter which he hande-l over to the Mayor, threatening to take his (Hughes') life In this letter the Bishop undertakes to explain his course with reguril to the School U'testion. and denies >ha' he ever took auv part in the twiilics of tiioday. He is very severe on tne Protestant clergy, and Colonel Stone of the Vdvertiser, and Bennett; una attributes nearly all the attacks made upon him to the mis representations of the latter. He also complains of the Press in general, with hul few exceptions. There is one thing however, which the Bishop entirely loses fight of. It is the Catholic press,which has been much more abusive thau any of the fioliticul press?and a largo portion of the articles to which he takes exception, were written in reply to those which appeared in the Catholic Press of New York and Boston, lu which both religion and politics were blended. Tit" American Klag, that glorious Banner, which "?waves o'er the land of the lree, And the home of the brave," /* a protection to the friends of liberty throughout the world, but those who attempt to insult it, must expect and unquestionably will leel its " stiijies." Great Btitain tried that experiment, ami the last war proved that the people of this country were not backward with visiting iht in with " itiipe*"? and if any Itody of naturalized citizens, on our own soil, should so fur forget the privileges that ling bus extended to them, its to ruthlessly seize that emblem of the Nation's Glory, and desecrate it hv irnmidinrr it under thvir feet, the Americans would }>ri>vp unworthy of tho legacy bequeathed them by their forefathers, if they did not protect it from insult; and it even in doing to, it was found necessary to visit those who insulted it with its "stripes" No person deprecates and abhors rnobism more than we do ; but such conduct would doubtless lead to such a result under almost any circumstances. The most prudent course is to avoid giving any cause for it? and, therefore, think that the Bishop is peculiarly unfortunute in thus alluding to the " stars" and " stripes" under such circumstances. [From the l'hiladclphla Gazette ] liisnor IIi'i.n. s's Sm:cs.?The New Vork Herald ot Saturday contains, in parallel columns, tho two reports of Bishcn Hughes' Speech, delivered at Carrol Hall, New Vork, as published at the time in the Herald, and in the Freeman's Journal. The Bishcp in his recent letter pronounced the report of the Herald a slander. If it is so, then the report in the Freeman's Journal, understood to he the Bishop's organ, is also a slander: for, after a careful examination of them, we find that with tho exception of the few opening sentences, which are identical in ideas, if not in language, the two reports ure precisely similar. If the Ilerald h.n fabricated the report of the Freeman's Journal, as the Bishop says it did its own, it will lie easy to prove it so, but unless it is sa done, the Bishop's charge has been completely upset by the Herald, and us a consequence, it being the entire basis of his argument in his recent I Iter?they must fall together. Tiiirj is the omnion of every candid man in this community. The Bishop has been completely demolished?ChevalierAVikotPd all through. Probably he will issue another letter. The public are vety anxious to see what he has got to say?and so are we. What can lie say 1 What can he say to the "reports" which we have given?"the basis and fountain" of ail " the abuse" he has received 1 "Two HOURS devoted to MUSIC ANf) PoKTRY."? This is the singular but interesting title of u novel, and no doubt instructive illustration of the beauties of Hebrew melody, in alliance with Hebrew poetry, about to be introduced here by Mr. Jones, the popular vocalist, late of the Park Theatre, and who has most successfully in Europe attracted universal attention to his lectures. The discourse and illustrations will take place this evening, at the Apou.o Sai.oon, and in connection with the variety of original as well as traditional melodies announced for occasion?the subject itself is one that should command general attention. Watering Peaces.?The fashionable watering places begin to throw open their doors. The Union llall, Saratoga, is already in tlie field. The Hamilton House, at the Narrows, has also opened under the excellent management of Mr. lleed. Various other fashionable resorts will be in the field goon. We see a number of ipiiet, snug, comfortable retreats in the neighborhood of this city. The J'a villion, at Flushing, is a delicious plare. The village is very picturesque and agreeable, and the house is very well kept. Oyster Hay House is alsi open This is a very pleasant place, and kept ir good style.

The audience comprised that poition of our population best able to appreciate the unequalled performances ui this gieat sum sirs. We would not praise him, as he is far beyond the reach of praise. He needs no commendation at the hands of any living being. His skill, his feeling, his soul, as displayed in his violin, stamp him as one who has drank deep at the very louutains of music. His whole being is wrapped up in his instrument, and it spoke forth the humanity, the love, the universal benevolence of the man. Such sounds as he produces roroe not irom the strings of his violin, hut from his inmost soul, and appeal to every heart not dead to kind and noble feelings.

It had created a great excitement. A battle had been fought at Aux Cayes, between the rebels and General lleviere, which ended in favor of the latter. It was reported, that General lleviere, on hearing the news of the declaration of a new President, would join the rebels with 15,000 troops under his command, and march against Port au Prince.

Great alarm was excited, particularly with tho muluttocs, who, it was supposed, were to tie driven off, if not personally injured; but it seems that his design was to raise a force sufficient to sustain a position of independence of the Government of Tort au Priuco.

Th? Cape is full of soldieis, and business is almost sus pendc.l. The plan generally desired is, that the Island should lie divided into three or more states ; each state to make its own laws and to collect its own revenues.

The great speculations going on in stocks .compels thos engaged to resort to every expedient for the purpose of bolstering up one stoc|?nd running down another Many who, finding every otludkesource fail, obtain the support of obscure prints, In pubWiing what stories they may invent, to injure or advance any particular stock. A few days since it was published that the two Norwich boats had been bought up by a large F.astern capitalist, and that hereafter they would run between New York and Providence. Wo are informed that there is not the slightest foundation for this report. The object in circulating this story is to injure, if possible, the stock of the Stonington and Norwich and Worcester Ilailroad. There are other stories published by prints in this city, of very limited circulation,with the same intention. One is, that the Stonington Railroad Company are paying $3000 per month to the owners of a steamboat, to keep her from running an opposition to Providence. These reports originate in the minds of speculating brokers, who make use of any tools, or anything, to carry out their ends. Those who speculate in stocks having no value, must be prepared at all times for a break down, but good stocks, stocks whose value is daily increasing, cannot be affected by the efforts of brokers, or by the circulation of false reports. All the agencies of the Montreal Bank will herealter only charge one quarter per cent on drafts of merchants in Canada West or Montreal. This movement will compel all the local banks at different points in the Provinces to reduce their charges to the same rate.? We see in ail sections a great reduction going on in domestic exchanges. The ruling rates for domestic exchange in this market, vary but slightly from those current at the date of our last report. There is vary little demand at this moment on any point, and me raits are as mum reuoceamine most economical arrangement will justify. The balances of trade regulate the rate, but there is as little deviation from the charges the course of trade establishes, as possible, in consequence of the competition existing between the different brokers. This rivalry has a very favorable influence on prices, and regulates rates more equally than all the banks in creation. Domestic Kichawk. M*vl8lh, 18ft.

Every element appears to be in the proper state to encourage and lead it forward We certainly have g; eater iacilitiea for carrying on stock operations thim we ever had before. During the speculations of lo34, '34 and '30, there was but one regularly organized board of brokers in the country. We now have fivo. When the first movements of the bubbles in 1832 commenced, there was a small clique of brokers in Wall street, who used to meet daily for the purpose of arranging their, stock operations and settling diflerencesThis system answered all the purposes of the day, but soon after stocks began to accumulate in quantity and number. State stocks were brought into the market, and all kinds of securities, both real and fictitious, wore largely operated in. This created a necessity for a regularly organized board of brokers, which was formed by most ?r ??.. loro-rct nruiMinni in the street. The war carried on shortly alter between the State banks and the United States Dank instigated increased speculations, not only in stocks, but in every species of property. The piescnt old hoard of brokers was the only beard in existence through the whole of the years of great bank expansion and speculation Towards the latter part of those timea a small clique of brokers in Philadelphia formed themselves into a regular(Iioard; coming in at the eleventh hour their operations as a body were very limited. Since the explosion of 1637, the boards of New York and I'hila . delphia hare operated with each other, hut not to any very great extent. About one year since things began to assume a more favorable shape for business, the money market became easier, and the future looked very encouri aging. This created a disposition to commence stock operations. Wall street was filled with those who had 1 passed through the bankrupt law, who were ready and 1 P?- BnmntVviACTiAturn ?n KftlfUnff iiwvnnoin v? ? ? ?|?iiu?aa g<?<> it great speculation!.

Io consequence ot thi? spirit prevailing, 1 many applications were made to become member* of the , board ol broker); many ot these applicants were refused i admission, on account of their having passed through the bankrupt law. The consequence of this move on the part of the oid board, was the establishment of the new i board of brokers, which has been the direct cause of more ' stock speculation in this market than any thing else, the ' United States Bank always excepted. The old board of brokers have for sometime past been very careful as to t what new members were admitted, and as a check to ap plications, have lately advanced the price of membership. The new noard was formed by and is composed of specu! lators. The public manner in which they conduct thi business of the boar<^ is of itself a great promoter of speculation. Purchasers hang about daring the session of the board and give orders to their brokers on the impulse oi the moment It is precisely similar to betting on any political question agitated in any clique 1 that inay get up an excitement. Sinco the establishment | of this new board ot brokers in this city, beards have been r organized in Baltimore and Doston This is a new fea' ture in the stock mat ket. The sales of stocks in Boston i have heretofore been made ot auction, once a week. To 1 the absence of a lioard of brokers in that city, we can at tribute the very limited speculations carried on there, compared with other cities.
