JAMES GORDON BENNETT, PaoraiETon or tkb Herald Establishment, Northwest corner of Fulton and Nassau streets Uevlynl of Business and Everything Klse? Prospects of the Country. livery person must admit that the country, in all the elements of prosperity, intelligence, and mo rals, notwithstanding an occasional outbreak, is going faster forward than ever it did at any former period of its history. Prosperity seems to be fall ing upon the land, like the dew of heaven, silently, and perceptible only at stated periods by the general results. Trade is increasing?manufactures are increasing?the crops are increasing, every year increasing. Travel is increasing. The revenue ol the railroads is increasing. And fortunately the excitement of politics?fanaticism in religion? and extravagance ol opinion on all subjects are de creasing, and separating their isolated movements from the general common cense movement of the country. In finance?in religion?in politics?in literature?in morals?in almost every department of human life, from high to low, the same general progress may be observed. We could refer to a number of general facts in proof of the accuracy of this view of the great and growing prosperity of the country, but we may as well confine ourselves to one of which we can speak with a degree of certainty, beyond any other, and that is the remarkable progress during the last few years?and we may say the last few months?of the New York Herald establishment. When intelligent, industrious, and business news papers are successful, they furnish one of the best possible pieces ol evidence in favor of the general prosperous movements of the country at large. Now we are happy to say that the New York l.erald at this moment, has a circulation and a business probably one-fourth greater than at any period of its most prosperous career heretofore,and is going ahead with a momentum equal to the general momentum ol the country at large. The aggregate circulation at present is far beyond what it ever has been before, and now reaches nearly 86,000 copies. The cash receipts of last week, by cash book, were over $2,500, making, if every week were similar, nearly $130,000 per annum. We pay to our paper maker alone a sum varying from $700 to $1000 a week, according to circumstances. We employ, bv the publication of the paper, probably more than two hundred persons, here and elsewhere. In short, in the midst of a Presidential election?in the midst of religious, financial, and other excite ments?in the face ol an opposition of the whole press, and of all those who arrogate to themselves the position of leading elements in society, the New York Herald is going faster ahead in all] its business operations, and in its healthy tone, and moral influence, than ever any paper did in this country, or in any other country in the world. These facts are given, as forming merely a small part of the evidence, showing the general progress of the country. We have, from the commence ment, in spite of the lies and falsehoods circulated against us, advocated the highest principles in motals, politics, ethics, religion, and every depart ment of human life. No doubt, errors have been committed, for, wherever there is humanity, there will be errorj but we believe that we have done more good in the brief period of our existence, by the inculcation of sound principles, and the expo sure and condemnation of bad ones, than any other journal in existence, in politics we have .always fearlessly maintained an independent stand, discussing the measures which divide the two parties on the highest principles of philosophy, and treating the personal and venal viiuperation of the lower order of the journals, of both factions, with that contempt and severity which they merit. We believe the position which we have assumed in the contest, now fitfully going on over the coun try between Clay and Polk, has been ot advantage to the management and morality of both sides. They are less personal than they were six months ago?lesB violent?less vituperative ; and one oi the most unprincipled, proscriptive, and vulgarly abusive of them all, the Courier and Enquirer, seems, at last, to have come to the serious discus sion of the measures at issue in this contest, and to have abandoned, in some degree, its vitupera tion and scurrilous abuse. In relation to religion, and to the introduction of religion into political controversy, we have follow ed the same course, and adhered to the same gen eral principles, treating with propriety and decorum every Christian sect, which may have its founda tion in eternal truth, but invariably setting our face against the introduction of the clerical character into the political field; the mihgling oi religion with the dirt ot this world. When Catholics have been unjustly assailed by Presbyterians, we have de fended them; and when Presbyterians have been unjustly assailed by Catholics, we have defend ed the in also. But uniformly, we have fallen upon both, when they departed from that golden rule of the author of the Christian faith?" Whatsoever ye would that men should do unto you, do ye even ?o unto them." In financial and commercial affairs, we have car ried on a war againBt ignorance, impudence, and pretension, from the first inception of thiB journal, up to the present time?from 1885 to 1844?nearly ten years. In this contest we have met with the strongest opposition from the speculators, the bank rupts, the blacklegs, and corrupt financiers of all kinds. But having planted ouiselves on the prin ciples ot honesty and common sense, we are happy to say that the sea is now smooth around us?that the whole country has almost adopted the prin ciples of finance which we have announced and defended, and that the currency is now in a better condition, and better understood by the people, than it was before. These are some of the causes which 'h?re con tributed to the success of this establishment, and have placed it beyond the reach ot its toes, either high or low. We have been in the midst of a financial, moral, political, and religious revolution ever since we started. We have now passed the moat dangerous parts of that revolution, and begin to reap the fruits ot having advocated throughout adherence to right principles in every department ot human lite. The recent riots in Philadelphia and Illinois, and the excitement in this city, in which the prelate of a certain church partici|?ted so largely and so foolishly, are but the remnants? the expiring eflorts of the troubled spirit of a day now passed for tver. These recent explosions will only tend to give a new force and momentum to the public mind in the right path ; and also to give to those journals which understand their position and the time, a greater circulation and a greater influence than ever. With these few remarks, on our present position and piosperity, we proceed on our way rejoicing. The prospect before us is a brilliant one, and no thing can prevent it from being realized to the ful lest extent by all who understand the "signs of the times." THE CLAY AND POLK TE8TIMONIAL8. THE PARTY PRESS OF THE UNITED STATES. ITS LICENTIOUSNESS AND IMMORALITY. HENRT CLAY. I JAMES K. POLK. [From tho Burlington True Democrat.] Henry Uui'i Morai. Fitnkii for the Presidency, Teateu by yhe Decalogue.?(Renpi-cttully dedicated to ail.the decency, all the morality, all the religion party.) 1 "I am the Lord thy (iod ; thou shaft not have strange gods before me "?The Godol Mr. Clay has never been the living God. Ilia God is mammon, whose temple is the United States Bank. Since 1811, his life has been devoted to the service of this monster, the only God to whom he Las been known to pay his vows. 2 "Thou shalt not make thyself any graven image? thou shalt not bow down tbysell unto them, nor serve them."?Mr. Clay has done more than any other man living to encourage the idolatry of monied corporations. He is now laboring to acquire political power, in order to re-establish kis favorite scheme of a National Bank. He is the representative of the whig gambling blacklegs, who, in the language of Jefferson, " now look to a single and splendid government of an aristocracy, founded on banking institutions and monied corporations, under the guise aud cloak of their favored branches of manufac ture*, commerce and navigation, riding and ruling over the plundered ploughmen and beggard yeomanry " 3. "Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain."?" Go home, G?d d?inn you 1 where you be long,"was the language ot Henry Clay to Mr. folk of Ten nessee, Feb. 6, 1838, when the latter was Speaker of the House of Representatives, and by his manly firmness prevented the passage of an odious measure which Clay had left his seat in the 8enato for the purpose of driving through by his presence. 4. ?' Remember thou to keep holy the Sabbath day."? Where was Henry Clay the 8unday previous to the New Orleans election I Parading the streets with drums and banners, disturbing the worship of the true God. He left Louisville on the Sabbath ; arrived in New Orleans on the Sabbath ; left on the Sabbath, and arrived at Mobile on the Sabbath! 5. " Thou shalt not kill "?He has twice attempted to commit murder, and finally succeeded in imbruing his hands in the blood ef the lamented Cilley. To kill in a duel is murder by the laws of God and man. Clay is the avowed champion of the laws of " honor." He is now under $60o0 bunds to keep the peace. 7. '? Thou shalt not commit adultery."? * * The history of Mr. Clay's debaucheries and midnight re velries in Washington is too shocking, too disgusting to appear in public print. 9. " Thou shaft not bear false witness."?Mr. Clay so lemnly swore to support the constitution of the United States ; yet his very first act, as we are told by his biogra pher, was a violation of his oath. He entered the Souate of the United States when he was only twenty-nine years and five months old, when the constitution provides that no man shail be a member of 'hat body before he i?thirty In 18-13 when he became Secretary of State, he also took the following oath :? " I, Henry clay, do solemnly swearthat I will support the Constitution of the United States, so help me God." Yet in violation of the constitution which provides fiat no man shall be called to account for woi as spoken in either House of Congress in debate, he challenged and attempted to murder John Randolph, who indignantly re fused to take his craven life when in his power. 10. "Thou shall not covet thy neighbor's goods."? What sense of honor can possess the man who will rise -rom a gambling table -villi $40,000 of his neighbor's mo ney taken in one night's sitting 1 That man was Henry Clay. It is notorious that he is an unscrupulous gambler Not for the mere excitement of the game?not for the amusement, does he frequent the card-table?but because he covets his neighbor's goods. The above facts will seem exaggerated -, they almost surpass belief; and yet they are literally Facts. We chal lenge contradiction. We dare any Whig to deny them. They compose a succinct biography of the man who pre sumes to aspire to the chief magistracy oi the United States. Shall he be successful ? What! Henry Clay, the prvfonsr of thu name of God, the Sabbath breaker, the duellist, the perjurer, the gambler! Forbid i Heaven! Forbid it martyrs, fallen in the struggle lor thu liberty thus endangered ! it will not, it cannot be ! So dire a calamity we pray may never visit the Ameiican people. [From the Eastern Argus.] Clay's Qualities.?A Christian, who has threa or four times shown his bravery by attempting to take away the life of hi* fellow-men in a duel. A Statesman, who is for a high protective tariff in the north, for a horizontal tariff in the middle States, and free trade in the south. A Chieftain, who fights duels, and curses worse than any other man in his State, and who, at the age of sereu ty years, is under bonds to keep the peace. A Philanthropist, who, if he cannot have black slaves, is determined to turn his fellow men into white ones. A Republican, whose wife and daughters are to* good to work in the kitchen. A Democrat, who, by abase coalition, cheated General Jackson out of his election in 18-15. A Politician, who joins each and every faction, howev er discordant their sentiments, and secretlv pledges hint sell to each to carry on ita designs, vno A Gentleman, who says to the Speaker of Congress (Col. Polk), "Go home, G? d d?njou, go home where you belong." [From the Kentucky Gazette.] A Gambler.?HU whole history in this country ia to mixed up with his habit* at the card table, that a conver sation about him i* olmogt invariably intermingled with (porting anecdote* oi hi* past life. [From the Albany Atlai.] Clav axd llAanotrH'* Duel.?We recently read in hia biography, written by his friend Mr. Prentia*, an elabo rate exenae for hia having missed John Randolph, whom, when member of Congress, he, then Secretary of State, had challenged to a duel for words spoken in debate. It was plead in behalf of Mr. Clay's maikamamtbip, that the gaunt form of the Virginian was ao concealed in the am ple drapery of his morning gown, that though Mr. i lay sent bullets thro >gh his robes on all sides, ana pie iced the spot where he should have been, it was impossible for him to hit the meagre kernel within. [From the Portland Daily American.] The Mai* ok Blood?A Short Biolbatht?A western paper gives the following truthful sketch. Henry Clay was born in 1777. In 1806 he had a quarrel with Col Davis, of Kentucky, and a duel was only prevented by the active interference of friends. In 1808, he challenged Humphrey Marshall, of the Ken tucky Legislature. They m-t; three shots were ex changed, and both parties were slightly wounded before the quarrel was settled In 1835, he challenged John Randolph, one of the purest statesme > the country ever saw. While he aimed a bul let at the heart of Randolph, that great man dischar ;ed hia pistol into the air This was twice repeated. In 1838, he assisted in planning the murder of Jonathan Cilley, ol Maine. He counselled with Graves, urged on the duel, and actually penned the challenge with his own hand. Cilley fell, nnd It is said hi* young wife died in a mad house, and bis two children an: ieit destitute or phani. In 1S41, he insulted Mr. King, of Alabama; a challenge paned; tho police of Washington city interfered, and tie was compelled to give $10 000 bonds to keep the pease, or go to jail. This bond has not yet expired. But the whig leaders say, these duels were fought when Mr. Clay was young, in liscreet, and hot blooded. Let us look at that a moment. He was born in 1777. 1st duel in 1805, when 38 years old. 3d " 1808, " 31 " 3d " 1815, " 48 " 4th " 1838, "61 " 5th " 1841, " 64 " Truly, he must lie a very indiscreet young man when, at the age of 64 he is under bonds to keep the peace. But this propensity for blood runs in the Clay family. It was only last year that Caasiua M Clay, a nephew, at a cock debtor horse race at Louisville, Kentucky, assaulted a Air. Brown with a bowie knite, slashing out one of hi* eyea, and mutilating him in a horrid manner. [From the Warren Democratic Advocate ] Flowers or Rhetoric.?" Go home G?d D-n you, where you belong Afr.

[From the Charleston Courier.] P 'L* can't be Elected ?James Knox Polk, and George Mifflin Dallas, are thonnme* in full of the new democratic nags for the Presidential race-the whig coursers carry less name than their rival steeds?they are simply Henry Cloy and Theodore Krelinghuysen.

" He want* to play Jackson, but let him have a care, from the sublime to the ridiculous there is no middle ground. The hero missed, the harli quin appears, and hisses salute the ears which were itched lor applause." [From the Poitland Daily American ] Gov. Pole's Rkliihon.?The whig* say, "Don't attack Mr. Clay's private chaiacter," and Uiey are mightily an noyed at any alluaion to that gentleman'* gambling and duelling propensities. They pronounce it quite an illegi timate way of conducting the canvass. Have they tor gotten their personal wanure upon Oeu Jackson 7 Have they to,-gotten thuir biutai attacks upon his amiable lady, that hurried her in anguish to the grave 7 They talk '.? Why, they have tor years indulged In wholesale slaugnter of innocent reputations. They have diagged the tout slime of their personal calumnies over the very hearth stone consecrated to domestic happiness. The objection comes with not the force of a featner from auch a source. Even now, while their lips are yet warm with these protests, they are trying to excite a religious feeliug against Mr. Polk on the charge that he is a Horn an Catho lio. The New Yotk Journal of Commerce denies it, on the testimony ot a highly respectable gentleman, residing in that city, who lelt the lollowing memorandum, signed with his nsme ?? Go*. Polk is not a Roman Catholic. His father is a Presbyterian ; his wile and mother are now members of that denomination; and he attends the Presbyterian church oftener than any other. The writer of this has been a neighbor of Gov. Polk ior thirty years " We apprehend that Mr. Polk's religious faith is not the question at issue ; but we are inclined to tbink that to be a good Catholic ia vastly better than to be a duellist,gamb ler and libertine. In the time of Jefferson, an effort was made to crush him on account el his belief?the result is not yet forgotten. [From the Albany Atlas, July 33.] Governor Folk's Auccitihi.?The Federal press, after (ailing to discover any thing in the privatechaiacter or public career of Col. Folk that could be turned to nia discredit, have been rndeavoring lor some tin e past to blacken the memory of his ancestors by the foulest ca lumniea. They first charged that his father was a "Tory in the Revolution !" This slander was readily exposed, and they then transferred the charge to his grandfather, Ezekiel Polk. Though no one doubted the utter falsity of the charge, yet as lew, if any, of the cotemporarios ot Ezekiel Polk are now living, this calumny could not be so easily refuted. The Nashville Union, however, promises to show its falsity. We give a portion of the article from that paper, though we consider the time and labor required to refute suah idle calumnies uiiprolltably spent The lie has done its dirty work, and the papers that gave it currency will not suffer their readers to see the contradiction, 01 it they do, the charge will be renewed against the great grandfather of Col. F. Gov. Pole's Ancestors?llr.ruTATiox or a Vile Slan der ?Every good man, without distinction ot party, lias seen with indignation and regret a vile slander, circula ted through the whig papers? the Jiichinond (Va) Whig Louisville (Ky ) Journal, Mobile (Ala 1 Whig paper, and other kindred prints?charging that Gov. Polk's grand lather, the late Col Ezekiel Poik ot North Carolina was a toiy in the revolution. A ba-er libel on a deceased pa triut never issued from a licentious press. However tin fact might have been, no charitable or honorable man would believe for a moment, that the moral or political standing of Gov. Polk ought to he affected by it. But the charge, in every possible sense, it a vile lubrication- 1 he writer of this paragraph has seen full, clear, conclusive and demonstrative proul of the high, honorable and man ly course pursued by Col. Ezvkiel Polk, as a citizen of North Carolina, latino and during the revolutionary struggle lor Independence, showing that he wasatiuu whig ol 1776, and gallantly bore aims as such by the side ol his kinsmen ot the same tamiiy name, and his noble whig fellow citizens. That the refutation will put the propagators of the slan der to open shame, vindicate the reputution ol the deud and bring new honors to the living, are tacts upon which all Gov Polk's friends may repose with perfect confi dence To say more in this place, would be forestaUfng the praiseworthy labors of the honorable and distinguish, ed citizens who have this matter now in hand elsew here, and whose woik, when done, will be ample, perfect and thorough. The Nashville whig papers, with all their rancor to wards Gov. Polk.li ve not dated to propagate or republish this libel. They dare not now do it?or even insinuate' that it is true. [From the Albany Argus.} James K. Polk. The first impulse of whiggery on the nomination el Mr. Polk, was to assail him pei serially Home ot the presses were so eager in the woi k of delamation. that they could not wait for the key-note Irom head quarters, hut broke out on "their own hook," and the result has, in some cases, been laughable The contradiction came so quick upon the calumny, that, in one case, after the outside was worked off containing the lie, the inside was obliged to give a retract on. The following is a specimen of the haste to say evil, and the humiliation ol instant detection. A Massachusetts paper tiius announced the nomination : " Democratic Ticket?For President, James K. I Polk. A duellist, who has deliberately shot at and killed his neigh hor; a protane swearer and free drinker of wine ; as Speaker in Congress he gave great license to rowdyism and insubordination.'' The retraction cumn In the same sheet as follows : " Since the outside of this paper went to press we are. as sureu that the representation given on the first page, of the piivate morals of Mr Polk, is entirely incorrect, and that he is not only a man of exemplary morals, but of reli gious principb-s. We made the statement on what we considered authentic inlormation ; hut under the cir cumstances, wish to have the charges considered as withdrawn. We shall make further inquiries and give the result " Some have gone, for political cupitnl beyond Mr. Polk, and started a tide of dishonor upon his grandfather. ( ?!

The shame would belong to the petty malice which would cast upon the worthy de scendant, the reproach lor his accestor's errors, upon which death has so long set its seal of oblivion, that no thing but partisan meanness would seek to break it. But it the tale he merely a malevolent invention, It is woise than a meanness-it is n flagrant crime against both the dead and tho living, which is not redeemed from its turpi tude by its failure to do the evil which it designed.

The thanks of the newspaper press of the country are es pecially due to benator Allen lor his elloris to se cure their reporters a more favorable position for their duties than the out-of-the-way gallery as signed them, as if unworthy to walk ttie same floor with the "grave und reverend scignors" below. 1 tell you, gentlemen Senators, wise as ye are, that your speeches verbatim tt literatim, would olten make a poor show belore the country. For your reputation as speakers, therefore, you are vastly in debted to the pruning and grafting hands of the quill-driversin the reporter's gallery. Respect this. The citv is as dull as an "old razor." P. S.?There is a spa spring ut the little village of Bladensburgh, seven miles from Washington Was out there last Saturday at a hickory pole raising. Speaking had commenced within a stone's cast of ihe fountain, bir Richard Packenham, lady, and attendant, came up with their equipage and horses, and while they were standing round the spring, imbibing its mineral tinctured waters, the orator in the stump proceeded, " Yes, gentle men, these are the principles for which our fa ther's bled; these are the doctrines which led to the expulsion of the British lion, und the establish ment of the fundamental rights guaranteed through the Constitution." The British lion at the spring had heard enough, and with his retinue retired, the orator elevating liis voice so as to reach the loyal servant of H. P. M. (Her Prolific Majesty), as he retreated.

[Correspondence ol the Herald.] Houston, Texas, 28th January, 1844. By an accident, the other day catne to my hand*), the " Alte und Neue Welt" No. 45, of 25th No vember, 1843, and among other communications therein contained, I saw one headed " Reisebilder in Nord-Central und Siid America," von Paul von Vicksburg, and not to my little astonishment I read insuid communication, a very unjust charge against the undersigued, which 1 can not pass without con tradicung, tor 1 am certain, Hiid 1 challenge con tradiction, that during the whole tune ot my so journ in ivleiida, viz: from the 1st November to I2ih December, 1841, and again from the 20th January to 7tli June, 1842, no such person u? the Buid Mr. Paul, of Vicksbarg, pretends to be, or any other German lias visited Merida; neither were there during the said periods any such " respecta tile Germans" as he refers to, or any Germans whatsoever resident there; consequently it is an ut ter mistatement; ihat he visited Merida during iny sojourn, and that he has seen me there, or that those respectable Germans have informed him, that 1 took great deal cd prtde lor iny being by de scent und by birtii, a Turk, an assertion which 1 never made to any person, and milch less " with great deal ot pride " That 1 was born in Turkey, I am us hille ashamed of as 1 ain ot living in Texas; in the lint of which 1 had no choice; al though 1 have in the last. A man is hut a man after all, whether born in the stable or in the par lor. Whatever my transactions witli the Yucatan government were for tiie purchase of the Island ot Cozumel, that is my business, and not the printer ' ' if Via object here to stale ; but had Mr. Paul, of yicks burg, if he really had a letter of introduction to ine, in christian forbearance delivered the same to ine, he might have had an opportunity of becom ing acquainted with rue and my business, which would have enabled him to write an unvarnishtd and impartial narrative of it from an authentic source, and not made random statements upon hearsay. The latter part of the story as regards i lermans arid Irishmen having been brought to the Island ol Cozumel, of whom the heft half died, and the others were taken by Capt. Smith to New Orleans is a mutter of which 1 do not know any thing, nor did 1 ever hearol it before. 1 here, however, de clare, that 1 had no agency or instrumentality in it, either direct or indirect, it such be the case. In conclusion I would only remark, that Mr. Paul of Vicksburg has traduced me without jus cause or provocation, and all upon hearsay ; tuid would reler the reader to what Mr. John L. Ste phens has thought proper to record in his valuable and highly interesting "Book of Travels in V uca tan," in relation to iny origin, subsequent adven tures, and my business in Yucatan, founded upon a personal acquaintance and observations ofacriiicu! writer. As 1 am not a stranger to all w ho might have read the narrative ot Mr. Paul ol Vicksburg, 1 hope the editors ot the "Alte und Neue Welt," will, us im partial conductors of a public press, give the above an insertion in their very respectable and widely circulated paper, that their readers muy read tin reverse of the picture, and disabuse their minds, for which favor they will much oblige their Mobi obd't servant, Geo. Fisher. Boston. [Correspondence of the Herald J Boston, July 22, 1844. Mr. Editor? I observe in your paper of Saturday last, a com munication headed " Small Feeling." 1 am sur prised that any person of common sense should have supposed for a moment that Col. Thompson Intended any insult to the Tigers. There is no thing in his remarks that would imply an insult ? ftie whole object ?1" his remarks is simply to in,.k< a little pluy upon the word lions Col. Thompson has a high regard tor Major Park, and would on no occasion say or do anything that would hurt the leelmgs ol Major Park. Col. Thompson is gentleman ot high and honorable feelings, und would not stoop to do a mean thing on any occa sion. He has moreover, no feeling of jealou.-y to wards the Boston Light Infantry, hut on the con trary, many of his trieuds are there, and have betn I heir, and| It ??? with mrird. pleasure rt.ui he heard of the attention they received in join city. 1 believe that Major Park has no idea thai Col.
