NEW YORK HERALD. I New York, Rttwrdajr, Jane 1, 1844. State of the Country?^Recent Kvent*?-Future Proepecte. This lovely and happy republic never had such a prospect before her as she has now, ol a long period of prosperity, power, happiness, growing wealth, increasing population, improving morals, and general civilization. The recent political events in Baltimore have almost settled the question of the next Presidency Mr. Clay will probably bt elected in the autumn by u moil overwhelming majonty, and, it is highly probablejudging trom the moderation of his recent avowals, and the like tone 111 Mr. Webster'sspeeclies, that he will pursue no ultra measure at variance with the practical good sense of the whole country. Hitherto the Democratic party, more practical than the Whigs on certain poiuts of financial policy, have presented a formidable opposition to the wishes . -l PL? . U... ........ l... ana measures ui mi. ?^iny , l>ui mm |iu>j, uy throwing overboard Mr. Van Buren, and its recent nomination of Polk &c Co., and its bitterness of feeling, caused by the Tyler-Calhoun movements on Texas, have lost the power of cohesion and the principle of enthusiasm. There are, indeed, four presiuential candidutes in the field,?Polk, Tyler, Birney, and Joe Smith,?but the number and confusion only ensure the certainty of Mr. Clay's success. Such being our culm view of the recent movements and present position of affairs, we have strong reasons now to believe that the Tyler Texas Annexation Treaty will not only be defeated in every shape which it can assume before the present Congress, but that the Vun Buren democrats (smarting under disap pointmeni,) and the Clay whigs in the House will unite anil impeach the Prctident This strong movement we think more than probuble. The present position and circumstances of the country will not change till Mr. Clay's accession to power in March, 1845. New measures will then be introduced and passed by Congress, provided a majority of whigs are returned. The most interest will be felt in the election of members of Congress; for on that will depend the success of a new United States Bank of fifty millions?the distribution of the sales of the public lands to ttie States, in order to enable them to pay their interest?the permanent establishment of the present tariff?the resuscitation of a neneral svstem of internal improvements bv Congress?and all such measures as have been shadowed forth by Mr. Clay and Mr. Websterfor years past. Past events and present prospects have accordingly a great effect on the existing commercial, manufacturing, and financial movements; and the tendency of the banks and merchants at present is, inflation, over-trading, expantxon, and the rise of prices and increase of extravagance, as in 1834, '35, and '36. Mr. Webster, indeed, has given a calm warning, in his famous Trenton speech, to the banks and the country, on the necessity of prudence ; but it is doubtful whether they have sense enough to follow it. We shall see Tyleh Movements ?Why don't the Tyler men move at once.and call a great, grand, multitudinous ratification meeting"! No doubt now, with the nomination of Polk by the democracy, that Tyler could, by holding out his offices in his hands, gain all the leaders of the locofoco faction in this city and throughout the State, and so poll a very respectable vots. Let him try this. There is no chance now for the locofoco office seekers in any other quarter, and none at all lor the four years after next March. But from this time till the 4ih of March they could get a mouthful?they could gorge enough to fill their bellies, and that might last thein k year or two. Do, Captain Tyler, try this. Mr. Webster's Trenton Speech.?This is the greatest speech he ever spoke?the most sensible, too It ought to be hung up in every bank parlor in the Union. It is a speech more addressed to bank directors, than for the election of a President. It is the bankers, Vude Mecum. He advises the banks to discount nothing but " good business paper." Good?but will not this rule cut himself off entirely from all bank facilities 1?however, that is his business, not ours. Excursions from the City.?Perhaps there is no city in this broad land, which possesses so many delightful places for recreation as New York Iioboken is one of the most charming spots on this earth Had it been made expressly to order, it could not have been better. Wood and water? the most picturesque and diversified scenery?the purest of uir?an abundaut supply of this world's substantial comforts?every thing which eye, or heart can desire is there. To Yorkville, Nowlans' celebrated place on Prospect Hill, is another delightfnl excursion. The noble, panoramic view from the hill is alone worth travelling many miles to see The Abbey, on the Bloomingdale road, is Hiso a cnarming place ; ana ournnain a nas neen from time immemorial a favorite resort. To Hamilton House, at the Narrows, is a most delightful drive on a fine day. You cross over to Brooklyn, and then drive down by the margin of the river, along one of the most picturesque roads in the Union. When you get to the house, the (uitine is found to be ot the most recherche description, and the wines of the choicest sort. And, then, the admirable manner in which the whole establishment is conducted by Mr. Heed, leaves nothing to be desired. This will be a very fashionable drive this season There is nothing like it in this neighborhood. Ex-Packet Shit Roscoe.?Something must have happened to this ship while on her passage from Liverpool. We have seen a letter which came by her, and which was received in this city yesterday morning, from Portsmouth, N. H. It is postmarked at that place, May 30th. The Roscoe, once one of our most popular packets, sailed from Liverpool on the first of April, under the command of Capt. Kicker, loaded with a general cargo for New York. She probably got into the ice now crossing the Atlantic, became somewhat disabled, and was comi>elled to put into Portsmouth to repair. This is all we have heard and supposed about her. Her long passage made those interested in her safety a little anxious, and this will probably give them a clue to her whereabouts. Since the above we have learned that the Ronroe waa spoken off Newburyport on the 28th tilt, with loss of fore.topmast and topsail yard, and maintop-gallant mast. She had a large number of passengers and intended to touch at Portsmouth. The Great Foot Kace?Nothing is talked of now, in the sporting circles, hut this race. Should the weather be fine, we shall e\|>ect to see us greut a crowd as there was at the Union Course when Boston and Fashion run. Bets to any amount can he had that the feat will be accomplished. For names of those that are to run, see advertisement. Sunrotf CoRiosiTtEs.?A meeting of the subcnhers to these gems will take place tins evening, at 7 o'clock, at the Carlton House. Those interested are requested to attend. Packets for Europe.?The Cambridge, Bar tow, for Liverpool; Mediator, Chad wick, for Loodon; and ."St. Nicholas, Poll, lor Havre, will tsail this morning _ Sport Nkxt Week ? We |e?rn with pleasure that Col. Johnson has consented to run Blue Dick against Fashion, over the Union Course, on Thurs day neit?four mile day. This will be the greater race that hns been run in this country for some time. Where's Boston 1 Acceptance.?Captain Tyler has accepted the nomination for the. Presidency, conferred on him b, the Tyler Convention at Baltimore Blahop Hughes' Second Letter?Worse and Worse. We published yesterday in en extra, and give to our readers in this morning's paper, a second letter from the Right Rev. Bishop Hughes, in which he attempts a rejoinder to our provokingly calm and complete reply to his first epistle on the Philadelphia riots, and their causes. This second letter furnishes the most melancholy evidence of the Bishop's imbecility, and exhibits so clearly the great want of sober judgment, of calm reflection, of vigorous thought, of necessary self control on the part of this prelate, that really we begin to regard much more charitably his Hud conduct at Carroll flail, and mingle pity with out indignation, in viewing the improper conduct ol a rnau so poorly qualified to manage, preserve, or defend himself. What does the Bishop do 1 Does he attempt any vindication of his conduct in organizing his flock into a political party 1 Not at all. Instead of taking that calm and dignified position which woulu have commanded resiieet and attention, even from those most violently opposed to him, the Bishop follows in the wuke of the highly respectable footsteps of Wikoff, an attuchi of Fanny Elssler, and pours forth torrents ol abuse against James Gordon Bennett?culls all sorts of hard names? descends to all sorts of low and vulgar witticisms, and squirts all sorts of venom and filth around him. Now, we are very well aware that there was much in our reply to the first letter, to provoke the Bishop. There was a great deal to occasion smarting and uneasiness.? But the Bishop ought to have kept his temper. lie should have kept cool, and preserved himself from falling into such an undignified position as that which he now occupies, in common with the person, destitute of charucter and reputation, to whom we have just ulluded. The letter is u miserable jumble of gratuitous assertions? violent abuse?silly slanders?extracts from the Bishop's old speeches and articles?egotistical declamation?and irrelevant remarks on religion, the press, public opinion, the omnipotence oi truth, and what not?all mixed un toeether with out any order, or arrangement, or principle of connection, except the very bad temper which characterizes the production from beginning to end ? What has all this dd rigmarole about bribery and black mail, and all such nonsense, to do with the question of the Bishop's share iu originating and fomenting that accursed spirit of religious animosity, which produced such terrible results in Philadelphia! How can the Bishop expect that all this vituperation and abuse, and splenetic attack will serve him! Alas ! the poor man will soon be taught that such a mode of defence is as ineffective us it is undignified and unchristian. We only smile with pitying contempt on such vituperation?such childish reiteration of abusive epithets; although, when we observe the manner in which the Bishop mingles his piety with his abuse?his appeals to vulgar passion with his appeals to the Most High?contempt giveaway to a stronger feeling of disapprobation, and we cannot refrain from asking,with what a burst of holy indignation, such conduct on the part of a consecrated dignitary of the church, would have been visited by the great apostle of the Gentiles, who uttered that memorable exclamation against the High Priest of the Temple,?" God shall smite thee, thou wbited wall!" It is not at all necessary for us, in reply to this puerile and weak epistle, to add one word to what .u.H th.. nnnAnnt r,f ?lw. "V. ?.?* V, Ull VUUJ ?.?W VWUMMV. V. .. . * Bishop as a politico-religious agitator. The public mind has long since formed a just, decided, and abiding opinion on that subject. All the petty quibbling?the play upon words and sentences?the s|>ecial pleading?all the twisting, and turning, and wriggling of the Bishop, avail him nothing. The public have had all the facts before them?they have read the Carroll Hall speech?they have watched the progress and effects of the spirit engendered there?they have now had in addition to ail this, a full exposition from the Bishop's own hand, of his spirit, temper, disposition and capacities of self-government?and the verdict which the public have pronounced, can never, never be set aside. It stands, and shall stand for ever, a pregnant warning and reproof to all men who would attempt to make religious prejudices and feeling, tributary to any political purpose whatever. But whilst we are thus relieved from the necessity of saying any thing more in exposure and condemnation of the Bishop's conduct in Carroll Hall, we could not feel ourselves justified in suffering these letters to pass without a word or two of reproot, in reference to the injurious results which they are calculated to produce, by exciting anew those very elements of civil discord, which the Bishop on that memorable occasion, stirred up with such disastrous effect. Both these letters?and perhaps the Becond most especially ?are calculated to do much mischief amongst the Irish. Instead of pouring oil on the troubled waters?instead of coming forward as a minister of the God ol Peace, this Bishop Hughes, even now rushes forth like the fool in the Proverbs, scattering " firebrands, arrows and deatn," saying, "am not 1 in sport !v?ne emits some ten or twelve columns of violent, abusive, inflammatory declamation?stirring up the bad passions of an irritable race, und adding fresh fuel to the flames which have been kindled amid an excitable community. Llow differently have the associates of Bishop Hughes, in the Catholic ministry in this city, demeaned themselves, as members ofthe priesthood, and as American citizens! We point, with ptide and satisfaction, to the conduct of Dr. Power and Dr. Pise, which has gained lor them the respect and esteem of men of all creeds. Their learning, their talents, their rare gifts of eloquence and mental superiority?all that they have, they have laid upon the altar of Him they serve. Never have their sacerdotal robes swept the filthy floor of a political hall,?never has the purity of their consecrated vestments been sullied in defiling contact with the world! With all the zeal, and patience, and diligence, and humility too, of the early fathers of the Christian church, these excellent men have, from year to year, led tneir flocks to the altar of God;?only in the sanctuary have their voices been raised, never amid the yells and shouts of an excited mob?never have the name* of these gentlemen been seen in the public prints, appended to long letters ol low, vulgar, filthy abuse?never have their pens been ho degradingly employed. When they have written, they have written like gentlem-n, like Christians, like ministers of religion. Oh ! what a contrast to the course aud conduct of Bishop Hughes! He resembles one of those priests of the middle ages, when the liberties of mankind lay prostrate beneath ecclesiastical despotism. His is the spirit which established the Inquisition, anil lighted up the flames of persecution. Ilis is the arbitrary, vindictive, despotic spirit, which, in those dark days, treated the people like pieces ol wood, and impudently maintained that only the j Church had a right to think. But it is too late in the day for such prelates as Bishop Hughes to flourish. It is only Huch ecclesiastics as Dr. Powers and Dr. Pise, that can secuie the good opinion of men, both in and out ol their own communion?and so long as the Catholic Church is represented by such men, there is no danger of any outburst of popular _i ; ? ?-- ? i*iniiM'i .11. |.nn oi otiior (li-nominiilions. And this remark naturally leads us to offer mother, and that is, tint in our humble opinion, he Catholics of this city should, by all proper neuns endeavor to remove as soon as possible, the njurious impression made on the public mind by ue unjustifiable conduct of Bishop HurIics. jj, ias placed them in a false position, lie has sepn~ .ted them from the rest of the community. Many .f them are natives of the soil, and all must now | eel keenly the evil results of the conduct ol the dishop. Let something then he done in order to remedy the evils produced by his interference with political affairs. )f Bishop Hughes himself,we do not wish to add another remark to what we have already said in relation to hi* con uct. The public understand him and ua perfectly well. The public mind is made up, with respect to hia conduct. He has already been tolerably well chastised. We have no desire to l>our vinegar into tqose wounds under which the Bishop so evidently smarts. Rather would we advise him. We would offer hint some friendly hint.for the regulation of his conduct hereatler; for, after all, we have in us some of "the milk of human kindness," uud would show even the poor Bishop, that the vulgar theological proverb is quite correct, and that the Devil is not half as black as, he is painted. Well, then, we would say to tin. Bishop, hereafter reason more and revile leas?instead of taking up the low and vulgar weapons ot vituperation and calumny, use argument and the words of "truth und soberness"?instead ol sutiering the guidance of the dark passions of the fwull wAiir lpjann? nf fnrlv nipfv?-afudv mo desty, your duly to your God, to your Hock, to your fellow-man und to yourself? give up writing for your little newspapers?cast lar from you the petty ambition of a demagogue. This is sound, affectionate advtce. We hope it will be taken in the spirit in which it is offered. Bishop Hughe* has time enough to reform. He is not too old to reform. He is of middle age. He is not, we trust, altogether beyond the reach of judicious management. He can yet wipe out much of the stigma affixed by his conduct in Carroll Hall. We are quite prepared to pronounce absolution for hie errors, but he knows that it is the rule of the church, that a sinner must first repent?let Bishop Hughes then repent, and we shall be the first to say?" Son, thy sins are forgiven thee?go in peace !" We have now done with the Bishop. We have only to bear one word of testimony to his veracity, and one question to ask. The Bishop certainly spoke the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth when he spoke of our circulation of twenty or thirty thousand. Now for the question ?good Bishop, where is the assassin?where iB me poignaru. JJO leu us, wnat is nisnamet Later from Hayti.?The Pandora, Paxson, from Jeremie, whence she sailed on the 20th inst., touched at Holmes Hole on the 29th. It was reported by Captain Paxson that there are now four parties in Hayti, each desperately seeking the reins of government; that the island was in a complete state of revolution; and that fighting was the only business transacted France had better step in and take Hayti, for humanity's sake. Dreadful Accident at Willi amsiutrgh?About ten o'clock last evening we received the following shocking intelligence from the office of the Democrat. wllliamsbttrfih, (L. I.) ) Friday evening, May 31, 1844. > A dreadful calamity has just befallen us in thifvillage. Six children, aged from nine years downward, have been instantaneously killed by the falling in of a high bank of earth in North 2d str-et, a little above the junction of Second. The poor lit tie innocents had been at plav in a hollow, scooped out of the bank, and which had been made deeper by the children themselves,who, as I am informed, were in the habit of digging "little ovens" and " little apartments" nt the foundation. Seven chii dren were so amusing themselves when the b nk gave way, with a tremendous crash, burying them beneath a weight ol very many tons of earth. Vigorous men with spades were instantly at work, and succeeded in rescuing alive the adopted daughter of Mr. Clevenger, ferry-master, numed Ida Wiggins, who is now able to speak, although horribly bruised and deprived of an eye. The othei six were stone dead before the men at work reached them. One is the daughter of Mr. Paul, druggi.-t, aged 9 years; two are children of Mr. Lewi* Jones, carpenter, of Grand street, Harriett nnd Abigail, aged about 9 and 6 years; and MaryJone-, aged about 18 months; Martha, daughter of Geo Darlington, aged 4 or 5. 1 never witnessed more excitement and distress. The sixth is Delia Shenie, aged, 1 learn, 14 years, daughter of a laboring man of North 2d street. Summer Hats. Now we have had a taste of the wurm weather, it is time for us to prepare for more that is to come. The most comfortable thing a man can wear during the hot season is a light hat, and however we may object to light headed people, there can be no objection whatever to light covering tor the head. The best description of this article that we have met with, isatGenin's, 214 Broadway. He lias a most beautiful article, ol the gossamer description, weighing from 2I oz. to 8J oz., the latter being full i oz. lighter thun the finest Leghorn, and are quite free from the objection to which the latter und Panamas, &c. are liable, being unaffected by storms, and retaining their shape equal to beavers, and perspiration and cannot strike through and soil thein. Those who are desirous of a comfortable light hat, will not omit to call. We have Urwl t.-.n th.m Query 1?A politician asks?" in the lull between (tales, caused by the supposed weakness of Polk, will not Clay be in danger 1" Perhaps so?perhaps not so.

These names must attract numbers to ilie ground to witness it. The Major is still the favorite in the sporting circles, against any other; but the field has the call. Such sport is exacted as was never before witnessed in this country. It is to be hoped that more than one steamboat will be engaged at each of the Iioboken slips on this occasion, particularly at the footot Barclay street. It is very annoying to have to wait some half hour for the return of a boat, and then to be squeezed by a boat-full of people, amid vehicles and cattle ol every description, as is lrequently the case when anything particular takes place on the other side ot the water. Itat.ian Upkra.?Sig. Rapetti's benefit came off last evening lietore n tolerably good house, considering the heat. The selection consisted of the Elizire d'Amore, in which Horgheseund Sainiuirico exerted themselves to the best effect; several dances by M'lle Desjardins, and Beriot's seventh air, if we are not mistaken, played by llapetti. This concert piece has been rocroco for some time, and like an old maid is now getting every year two years older ; it is, notwithstanding, a very pleasing composition, and was given with all the regularity and purity of tone which distinguish Hapetti's performances. M'lle Desjardins appeared in the Jaleo de Xeres and a Mazurka, which she introduced under the name of a Polacca. The Jaleo de Xeres is rather a tame imitation of Fanny Elssler's, and would not have lost by a better accompaniment of the catlagnrttcK. We prefer the Mazurka, which contains some very clever movements, danced in very good style by Desjardins The entertainment begun with Bellini's overture to 11 Pirata, vety well played by the orchestra.

It will lie observed that domestic bills at sight anil sixty days on this city have undergone an alteration and improvement. Domestic Bills in this market, on other cities, vary bat little from previous rates except those on New Orleans and Mobile, which are now at a discount. There is very little enquiry at this mv. ment for domestic exchange on any point. The existing condition of the currency is one great cause of the re duced rates, and the limited demand. The currency ol Ohio is so near that of New York, 'hat merchants from the former State remit their issues ot the banks iu their vicinity, or bring them to this city to meet their pay nsents hare. So long as the present equalization exists the domestic exchange business in this city cannot be very profitable. Domestic Kichanges, May 31, ISO.

The same cause has infected the whole, viz.: The great almn. dance of maney, and the existence of great speculations. All dividend paying stocks naturally and invariably ad vance a small per cent, as the interest on tbem accumu. lutes and the dividend day draws near ; but an advance in quotations for such stocks as Illinois, Indiana, Pennsylva* nia, Farmers Loan, and Bank of United States, can otily be produced by a very easy state of the money market or ny uie movements ol (peculators, mere has not transpired the slightest thing thst would he likely to add one cent to the actual value of these storks. The delinquent Statis ere not n jot npnrer paying the interest on their debts than they were a year ago, and the fictitious value represented by tha quotations, cannot extend heyOnd the limits of Wall street. Nearly the whole capitals of the hanks ot this city and this vicinity are employed in stork operations They can find no employment for their immense means in the legitimate channels of trade, and ire compelled to loan every dollar they have on storks, to enable them to declare a dividend. Business never was more nctive. Trade was never more prosper ous. The (products of .the interior are , finding their mnmr*1>st^mmmmmmesssm way to markat, without the aid of bank credit* The hanks no longer possess that great control over the movements of trado they once had. The system of credits has been thoroughly revolutionized tun! placed upon a better basis than heretofore, consequently, thero does not at present exist that necessity lor banks that un inflated system of credits required. While the banks were so intimately connected wtth every department et busi ess, the mercantile classes depended on them, their veiy existence rested upon the movements of a few individuals who weilded an immense power, through their connection with the currency. The power to advance or destroy the fottunes of tiiose depending upon them foi favors, placed the merchants completely at their mercy. The dangerous connection has been dissolved, a coalition iias been farmed between bank directors and stock speculators. 80 long as this coalition lasts, so long must stocks advauce, and so long will speculation bo carried on; but the moment the brokers get lirmly into thoclutches of the banks, that moment their fate is senled, aud all the hub bles will explode at once. In 1635 and 1830, the banks by great extensions of issues and credit*, led the mercantile Classen into all kinda of extravagance and speculation, by a great expansion of loans and discounts, they created a sudden advance in prices for all kinda of property. Every one supposed that there could be no end to the prosperity then existing, and launched into every specie* ol speculation; contracts wore made months in advanos, engagements were entered into, running through years oi time, fortunes were made on |>aper instantaneously, merely by advances in valu?,and the whole machiuery of trade was deranged. After the banka had inllaled the bubble to its greatest extent, when they were satisfied that the thing was ripe and ready, the screws were tightened, and the explosion tremendous. The revolution was perfected in about twenty four hours, and tho change that came over the land was like a black cloud suddenly shutting out the light ol the sun From the experience of the past we are jus'ifled in prophesying the same for the future The mercantile classes were the sufferers then, the brokers and speculators will b* the xuflerors this time. There are great dangers attached to the present condition of affairs, and we warn in season all those who do not wish to be involved in the general wreck that must sooner or later overtake those connected with the existing speculations. The banks are treacherous supporters, like jack-oloo/I tlmir rnllntt?Ara infn th? rlitaVi an/) loavn mnmiuB m?/ ?c?u ?? ? ?? .v.,v them there. " Canai, Loaw," Statu or New York.
