NEW YORK HERALD. ft*w *orki ? ???*?/, AU|IIM II, UM. Great Excitement Amongst tiu Israelite* of tbU Cltjr. A tremendous excitement at present prevail* amongst ihe Israelites of this city, ia consequence ol a violent controversy respecting the right ui voting on matter* conuecird with the aecular at fairs dil l eccle?iaatio?| discipline ot the sect, which has sprung up belween the old ariatocrati. L.riglieii Jews, hs thry are called, and the " young Israel," or the Hebrew* who have been born ant educated in this country, and have become tnibuec with the democratic doctiines and feelings ot thi> glorious republic. The agitation hat* been so great that serious disturbance of the peace has beeu ap prrheuded on several occasion* when the opposing parties met, and requisition was made no longer since than ye terday, on the Mayor, fur the at tendance of a portion of our admirable police torce, at ihe election this day iu the congregation " Buai Jeshuruu," iu Elm street. It appears tnat "old Israel," or the "old hunker" pirty insist on rejecting a laige portion of the voters who are qualified to exercise their franchise by the [laws of this State This they do ou the ground of certain exclusive " By-Laws" which they have themselves adopted, in order, ae they allege, io prevent the annoyance of improp<r persons, who do not come up to the orthodox stand ard of "respectability." Agiinst this exclusive doctrine, the seat-holders, or "Young Israel" ver> jusily urge, that the view of the " old huukei" party is as unsound as it is unjust?that the number ol mere seat-holders is a miuoriiy of the present mem bers?that the former can at all times be controleo by the latt r, and the number of seats being limit, ed, the danger is merely imaginary. As to the character aud respectability of the seut-holderF, they affirm, that it will at any time compare with the staud ird of that ol the members; and while they are slandered as a mass, they are contiden< that so one single individual can be found upon Whom to apply the imputation of " disrespectabih ty." The true reason is, indeed, to be found in the asiutned su.ienoriiy and anu-republican leel ings of many of the older tnenribere, and it is im portant to add, that but a few years ago no such criterion or scale of character existed in that con grrgt'ion, but now, in the expressive language of the scripture, it seems that "Jeshuruu has grown fat and kicks " The youug democratic paity have d:scovered great activity and energy in the vindication cf their riehfs. They submitted the matter, the other d ty, to Mr. J. W. Girard, and obtained a favorable opinion from him, as will be seen from the docu ments which we annex, and which p-esehtthe sub ject of controversy in a very clear and intelligible mnnnt The oongrsgmtian " Bnsl Jeshuruu,'' incorporated un* dor the general law ol 1813. have pasted a bylaw that no rraon eMail be m tided to vote at an election, unit si he a mem iter admitted by a vote of two-thirds of the mem bers and has been a seat bolder for two or live years Is this by-law (ot which I give the subuance) void, as being dernratory io the 7th section of said act, end can a person pot*es?ing the qualification* prescribed by that section, vote at an election lor trustees without any com plisaca with the by la a ?

Philadelphia Police.? L'he idea of organizing a police force in Phil tdelphia, without first remo deling the municipal government, and bringing all the districts within one jurisdiction, is very pin perly regarded by all intelligent men in that ci'y as quite absurd. There would be constant sourc* s of annoyance, and the usefulness of the polite force be entirely or almost entirely counteracted, were the present ri .iculous subdivision of the cit> into several districts, each with its own municipal government, to continue. The truth is, as we hsve repeatedly urged, the great difficulty in Philadelphia is io get rid of the unprincipled officials who live ou the corruption with which they disgraced and encumbered the different municipalities. And Philadelphia can never be a city of peace and order aud prosperity, until these rotten officials are all swept away. Ot what use would a police force be, if the present machinery of rascali y, and roguery, aid corrup tion, be allowed to contiuue in full play 1 Almost a Vxay l xauiBut Duel?A good deal of excitement was produced on Friday last amongst the eminent trsg-dtans of the minor theatres, the ball* t girls at Niblo'e, and the literatiun of the Paik How taverns, by the intelligence which wss whispered about, that a duel was to be lou<ht be tween two very distinguished young gentlemen well known ou the steps of the hotels and ia the lobbies of the theatre. The subject of the quariel was of course a lady?in fact one of the most et pectal favorites of the fashionable and crowded houaea at the little Olympic. Whether a remark r-flctug on the cslor of the lady's eye brows, or the perlect adaptation of her flesh-colored continu ations, originated the aerioua difficulty, we are not prepared to say. But the quarrel did take piace, and blood alone kcould wash out the stain, which the fair fame of the favorite?the especial favori e of the " brilliant, fashionable, select and overtl wing nouses" at the Olympic had sustatued A field immediately adjoining Greenwood Ceme tery wua the place selected for the hostile meeting? the seconds, with remarkable foresight and sa gacity, having made that choice for the very sensi ble purpose of saving the time and trouble othet wise necessary iu transporting the carcases of the combatants to that very elegant, recherche, po ticat, aud charming place of mte.ment, as it is expressed in Hie baud bills and reports of the highly enter prising company which manages the afl'atrs of that Necropolis. At the appointed time?one of the parties, his second, a surgeon, a friend, and a laige bottle ol brandy, were on the ground. The antagonist ol the punctual gentleman, w?s, however, not forth comtt g. He had iu fact mysteriously eloped fiom the care of his anxious relstives that very morning and has not since been heard of. Alter wsttinj for ha i an hour, the other parties left the ground after em,.tying the bottle of brandy, and it was re. marked that on his return t*> the city, the " gentle man" who had really appeared on the ground, wa> not afflicted with the ague which had been so an noying on his journey to the vicmiiy of the Ceme tery. ^kbvici*bi.b ? The rod is indeed your great re former alter all. We have been much gratified tt> obseivtog that the gentle chastisement sdmin.s tered to the Mayor's " organ" the other Hay for tU profanation of a text of the Sacred Scripture, ha Is I to repentance aud a promise to abstain for th* future from such improper conduct. The " organ' yesterday was quite penitent. T?c ELtcriotrs ?As North Carolina hassureh gone for the whig* by as large a majority as te litt, we will drop her. We now begin to recetv* returns from Kentucky As the election in iha Ftate is of three dsys duration, we, of coarse hav. noming definite. The contest in the counties op posite Cincinnati was quite animated Canada ?We have received by Livingston's express, Canada papers of Thursday They rot. PttSACMNo to Obanocmw.?Som* cl the Can * *?**?? have been engaged in censuriog ?| n in defending the conduct ?t a couple ? Methodiat preachers, for preidbing to the Orangemen on the 12th of July. The best defence -??*t up lor the conduct of theae expounders of the Word is, that the Orangemen being heinous am ners, their ministry was much wanted in their case To thisdefence ihere can be little objected?if those professing servants of Uod, Mr Kichev and another, ?fid indeed officiute to the Orangemen in then ?lerical capacity, in order to preach Orangisin out of tOeiti, tiietr work was highly merilouous; il hey advocated the sentiments of peace, liberality, etiari'y, forbearance?ihey did well to attend to tht Orangemea as well as, nay even before, other sin uers, seeing .hey want ao remarkably an infusion of those christian gracea very badly: but it Mr. llichey, and his compeer, M-'Cullough, did, as we know 18 not unfreq ient, wail upon these ferocious partisans and persecutors, as one of themselves, or *h approving of iheir system, their principles, or netr tenets?if they prostituted the gosjwl ofpeace, whose end is the universal happiness of all men, to sanction the most tanaiical and exclusive cause thai 'he vice ot f..||y of modern times has produced, thi-y deserve the marked condemnation of society, -md will meet it at ihe hands of all who are not c intaminaled by the wretched fury of party bigotry | and fanaticism. I How are the mass of the people to cease to do j evil slid learn to do well, so long as their ghostly advisers are foremost in envy, haired, malice,and I all uucharitabfeness. It paius one lo the soul who | really does feel a respect for that great, beautiful, i and divine system of laith and morals, to Bee such odious infractionaof its cardinal injunctions, on the part ol those who stand forwutd as its monitors? ?n wo.kmeii in the house ol the Lord, "who need not to ne as learned, rightly dividing th- word ol truth." We have heard Orange sermons before now; anii-Catholic sermons before now ; and poll (ical harangues from Catholic pulpits too; but we never iieard one ot them that did not deserve the title of anti christian as well. It is one consolation tnai being manufactured forthe occasion, the mere echo ol the feelings of the enthusiast to whom tliey are add re. bed, they prove unfit to make anv iin pre&iou on other and more sensible men. Still, he who, professing lo teach the guspel ol peace and to be a servant of the most high, will endorse th* j ravings of faction, and stoop to the low and dirty work of party strife, is unfit to be a minister, is an u .clean channel for the pure orators of salvation, and neither adequate to reconcile man to his ma ker, nor to his telluw being. Mass Meetings?Both whigs and locofocos are very busy just now holding mass meetings ail ovei ih' country, and a little more enthusiasm than has been heretofore manifested, begins to make Hasp pearance. The whig mass meeting on Long Isi and, ihe other day, was u great atlair. Hiran. Ketchum, of this ciiy, was there, and bored ihe multitude nearly to death by a long, pompi.ua, rig marole legal argument about the tariff. Hiram does very well at a meeting of the Anti-Popeiy Society, where his long yarns mnygodown with aged spinsters and bigots hard of hearing, but at these great political muss meetings, he and legal orators o? his stamp, are rather annoying, espe cislly in this hot weather. The people want some thing short, and to the purpose?apicy, humorous und effective. Philosopher Gkerlky.?This ecceniric genius delivered au address before some literary society at Hamilton College, the other day, and a pretty mess, it appears, he made of it. It was partly lite rary, partly philosophical, partly Clay, and partly P?arie*ite. Horace had better stay at home, and look after his pai**r. Clay and W sBsrsa.?Mr. Webster denies very distinctly that he ever uttered a syllable ugiiusi Mr. Clay. Of course he never did. It is very im pertinent to quote remarks made by Mr. Webs.er years ago, which ordinary people do not regard as remarkably complimentary to Mr. Clay. It is ? Who imagines that a politician means anything by what he says T Not we. The Steamboat Landings -The old system of disorder, coufuaion, and picking of pockets is be ginning to be resumed at the steamboat landings lu fact, the idea of making any reform of this de scription permanent, without a regular, efficient and properly organized police force, is utterly pre-' posteroux. All these minor reforms, about which we have heard so much fuss and declan.a non in praise of the acliviiy and zeal of the new corporate authorities, are humbugs. We never can have an ordeily and well regulated city without h proper police sysletn, and thai seems just as far off ad ever.

More Floods in the West?We regret to find ' olh,'r of the west besides those inun dated by the waters of the Mississippi, have beet, visited by similar calamities. The Whitewaier section of Indiana lias lately suffered greatly fion heavy rains. The Recover of the l,t insiant, Hays:-?On Thursday night last, this section ol <he country was visited by a tremendous fall ol "?am The List Fork of Whiff water* at Abingion, was said to be four leet higher than ever bef.rn known. One farmer, Mr. Manning, lost obou 10,000 rails, and hie crop is almost entirely de ?ttroyed ; he estimates his losa at about #5,000 There were a great many sheep drowned, anr other property to a large amount destroyed." Th. HtcJimond Palladium,ol Friday last, says: " Th* Whitewater Valley was visited last night by a per tect deluge of min The Last Fork, at this place rose tn the course of the night, to a height beyon. vhat it has been for many years.

WILLIAM H. 8KWAIID. Messrs. John Kelleher, Denis Halpin and P. M'Quade. In the Ex'Governor'a denunciation oi intolerance and proscription we have only to find fault with the bombast. Certainly no man worthy oi the privi leges of American citizenship can attempt to justi fy or palliate the enormities and outrages commit ted by the misguided und infuriated rioters of Phi ladelphia. But we cannot forget thai the conduit ?if unprincipled demagogues, of their own party? in whose work the Ex-Governor himself has had his share?has had a very great deal to do in the introduction of this spirit of intolerance, proscrtp ion and persecution. The reckless, selfish, and injudicious introduction of O'Ccnnellism into tlrs c luntry has inflicted incalculable injury on the Ir eh population; and if Ex-Governor Seward bad an enlightened aud genuine regard for the " Irtends of Ireland," young or old, he would refrain from nH .mmutory appeals, which can only excite and increase b&d feelings already existing to a danger ous extent.

Latk from Mexico ?Toe Eugenia,Captain Bis ?toe, from Vera Cruz, arrived yesterday, with a file of papers fr?>m the city of Mexico to the 9th t>f fitly inclusive, and advices from Vera Cruz to the I4*h, two days Inter. We learn from Captain Biscoe that an army of 15,000 men was in preparation to mer^h against Texas, and was expected to reach Matamoras in November. The Congress had not fixed upon a Un for raiding the four millions of dollars required tor the war, but no doubt was entertained that the money would be obtained, somehow. All the foreign ministers had interceded with Santa Anna for such ot their respective countrymen as were taken with Sentmanat, on the failure ol tiisQuixmic expedition, but the President hsd an swered that itie law must take its course ; the pri soners would be tried as pirates, and, if found guilty, hs pitates dealt with. Mr Green was still carrying on his paper war with Senor Bocamgn. The markets at Vera Cruz were inactive as U'ual at this tints of the year #Th? re was but little de mand for goods of any kind, and prices had not risen in proportion to the increase of duties under 'he new tariff; but sti cks on band were small, and from this cau e, as well as from the stability of the preaeut government, an improvement was looked tor in the lull, particularly should the fair ol S<m Juan be held as usual, and as was anticipated.

We Stopped at one of these houses some two or three miles from the I ike, and were greeted with all the hospitality "of frieud," and after a few mo ment's " talk," were asked ii we were going to the "dance." "By all means," was our eiasive reply. They showed us the route, and we started off, determined to enjoy the " sweat," and after some hoprs' ride arrived at the pi ice, designated "Van Houteii's Tavern." Descending, we lied our horse, called for something to drink, entered the ball room " accoutred as we were," and paid 'he initiation lee, 64 cents to the "fiddler." No other introduction, we ascertained, was nccetaary Asking the hand ol one of the Dutch lasses, w. joined the merry dance What a contrast to a city Da 11 room !

It occurred to us there, mm whilst we regard as barbarous the [eople of tnos. countrtev who tattoo themselves and use the heeth
to destroy their teeth, we overlook the deformitt of our city belles, caused by their many false and pernicious appendants which so often prove fatal. Alter a lew hours enjoyment, we b-fi, sattsfi-d that for health and beauty, the c untry maids sur pa-8 the city bejles; and that the bustle, and all its appurtenances, instead < f ornamenting, delorm tin human shape, and becoming warm in aupp rt of this argument, we concluded the soliloquy that a patrtots who leel an.interest in the mothers ?.f ou? country, we should unite in the condemnation 01 these, not only destroyers of the human form, hui of human life. Fully convinced of this, we drove up to our locandu, and part 10k of the re/re&hmeuts that were awaiting our arrival, and retired. The morning broke clear and beautiful, and after breakfasting, we took our gun, and started 011 a tramp. There is a tradition here that on one ol the high cliffs which surround the like, lie the re mains of an Indian chief. We clambered along in search of it; now and then some bird rising and lulling wirh our shot. We reached the stoned spot; a large tub'e sionr, with the warrior's fact cut upon it, marks the place, ft bears the appear ance of having braved the storms ot ages, and that when he ruled, he frtile thought 01 the white man, and the aggressions to be made upon his thet flourishing people. But such is the tide of events, ?and now h;s whole race appear doomed to atinthi lation, in a short time to be like him, kn?wn onI> on the pages ol history. We wandered from the tomb in silence, gazing on the Hudson, which it o erlooks, with "ships of sail," admiring the iirc smiibie energies of " the whites," and sitving the (alien, conquered, desolated Indian. Rockland Lake, in length and width, is one and a nali miles each. It is supposed to be supplied by boiling springs, there being no visible tributary You are unable to touch bottom with ihe lead, which is said there to be owing to its great depth but more probably to the force of the water pulp, tng up, tend to support this supposition.

Allow me, through the medium of the Herald, to ??how the people ol the United States and of Eutope, tud of tjte world, the interest Baltimoreaiis are now taking in the cause tf education. The two pa?t weeks have been full of interest to both parentsand ?htldren. Examination after examination, exlubi ioa after exhibition has excited the dormant rncr ties of >outti, and carried enthusiasm for know ledge to almost every home. . The object of this communication te to notice in < particular the exhibition of the senior class of the Maryland Institute, in Calvert Hall, on the 22J instant. The exercises of the day were <>|iened with pruyer by the Right Reverend W. R. Whitlingham, Episcopal bishop of Maryland. The audience were then and at intervalsdurtrig the ? lay entertained with excellent music from the In lependent Grey's Band. The salutatory addr-ss 111 latin was admirably adapted for the occasion. The original addtess on Liberty by R. W Poe was \ popular Iheme and well delivered The Ameri can Patriots by M P. Grundy would have done credit to an older speaker, and was listened to wnh ?narked attention. The popular theme on Oratory wkb beautifully written by Wm E Alcock. Jo.-hua D. Ball on Ambition showed that he wab at least ambitious to equal his colleagues. The future ?rospects of the American Republic by Thomas B Lewis, showed that the yomhlul orator had ful ly weiuhed ihe baneful effects of civil dissensions, ,ltd afforded flattering prospects oi his future suc cess and usefulness ; and though the youthful as pirant (with some otuers) sufficiently indicated his political preference; yet we conceive it was the result of an enlarged and liberal toleration >f opinion on the part of the principal (J. 15. Burleigh,) and a restriction of opinion, while it would narrow down the nwid to th^ limits of a nutshell, aid been tve of much injury, would have take nuch from the zest and interest in th? ne neinu _ t> pro(jg?,' ??keiA^B} iwgCT'-a! ?trees. We hold, moreover, that the main* 4* no right to bus to his own predisposed^Ife*"., ' Wt< he minds of hid pupils, in either refill.n or ?otitics; the responsibility on these momentous ibjecis, rests with their parents th mselves, and heir Uod. One of the most beautiful features -of the exhibition was the freedom in which conflicting views in civil and religious rights wete i-xpressed. li all our youth were thuB educated to rrs(>ect the opinions of those who honestly differ 1 root them,how much of political party rancor and venom would disappear; there might be hope then hat our state and national legislatures wou'd oe resected as the fountains of order, t f usetul. ness and wisdom; distant nations might then point to us as a model worthy ef imitation Stated men and Warriors, by H. M. Wilson, was deliver ed in a manner that would have udd> d a new lau rel to many of our Cougtessmen. The address he fore the Literary Societies of the Maryland Insti tute, by S Chase Coale, Esq , was, bo tar as I could judge, a chaste and altogether a most beauii u! production, but it was delivered in too Iowa one to fill the extensive hall. The Holiday Ad Iress delivered by Robert Welkee Poe, elicited the idmtration of the audience, and it certainly was t very great compliment to the youthful spehkef to lave secured the undivided and almost breath ess "tteution of the audience afitr they had been confined upward- of four hours , The Essay 011 Duelling was not an inviting sub ject ; yet 1 must confess that I have fully mingled with ruembeis of both Houses of Congress, and listened to arguments in favor of duelling lrom the most gifted of our Statesmen; I have lietetn d to and read arguments against duelling by Divines and writers of the greatest reputation >f the present and past ages, yet never were my feelings so imperceptibly carried awny: never was I so completely under the control of any speaker, aswhen hsteuii gio the outpourings of this youthful orator. There seemed to be a mo ral sublimity to see u youth just veiging upon ni.n hood, at the very uge when the clitvulric leelti.gs ?f the code of honor, have the greatest influence over the heart of m m, attack 11 popular sysuni? f nonor iu the very face of s? me of its ablest ad vocates, (and where publ.c opinion was strong giinst him,) nud picture in the vivid colors ol eul life, our statesmen and heroes periling their nves b< fore the cannons deadly roar, and win t is still more Hstuiiishiuir, spuruing ihe highest offices front the E ighsh thionr, and withstanding lie almost irresistible influence of British gold ? Yet, s?ys he, w nh the tei vent leeln gs of hi* glow lug hear', ''they withstood nil these iiiflitnus combined, but ihey could not withstand the impe rious law ot honor, upon whose altar the blood if nauy ol America's most gifted eons has been pour ed out" His biting sarcasm, his powerful reason, hs convincing, 1 must add, irresistible elo j ne nee must have made the heart ol the nn st /.ealous and bigoted advocate ot rfuelji g alter and shrink Horn its awful responsibilities I have the practical as well as theoretical expe rience of the duellist. I have run the bullet 'hat night be made wet with the heurt'e blood of my iriend. I have been on the field of honor?but while viftue has a seat in my he irt? while reason maintains her throne?may 1 never again be instru mental in 1 aking or jeopardizing the happiness or life of a fellow-mortal. Oh! that every duellist in ?ur country could have heard the vi ice and wjt aessed the enthusiasm ol this young author!? (T. 0. Poe.) I verily believe that no mort more would the wailing of 'widows, the teats and cries of 1 elpless orphans, be w itnessed by American citizens?never igain would the endearments arid scanctiiy of the family circle be made desolate, with the awful gloom ol despair, by the hand of the duellist. It appears to me thu the mos prominent ?ul useful leature of ihe exhibition was, that 11 a ?#?' cally taught the young men to reaaon and thin* J'? themselves. The essays were all original. selection of tin1 subjects, and t te manner in w, h y w^re t e t-d, must in'vi*ahly impress ui young tnind a stio.>g attachment to our republican iiisiiiutioiis, and the most sacred regard tor virtue ami sound morality; and when we take into con sideration the uniform excellence in delivery with out a single exception, we hazard nothing in the assertion, that exercises of it similar character vere never surpassed by any institution 111 the (Juion under the control of a private individual. The audience was ot a truly select character. > et so tensely thronged was the spacious hall, (the largest in the city,) that those who were not there at the hour of opening, had to return hi me without witnessing the exercises, n mm g ihe numerous judgrs of oratory, w e noticed the \> n< r able C hief Justice Brue, and the Hon. David Hoff man ot Philadelphia. We conceive ihat nothing can add more to ihe true dignity and greatness of country, than the aitention of its most influential citizens to the canse of education. A new era is about to dawn upon our literary institutions gener ally; our legislators must eventually see, that purity, freedom, and hvppiness call be enjoyed only in an educated community.
