NEW YORK-HERALD. ?o*k, Hat or day, August 31, ldM. Illustrated Weekly Herald. THE GREAT ZDS ASS JM23STX2VG ?F THE WHIGS. MR. WEBSTER DELIVERING HIS GREAT SPEECH 111 The Reporters of the New York Press. Ws shall i.-eus this morning a very beautiful and interesting Illustratku Wkkklv Hbrald. It will contain a large and very graphic engraving of the scene presented at the Whig Convention in Albany, on Tuesday last. This illustration will convey a correct idea of the picturesque appear ance of the multitudes assembled on that occasion, the platform beneath the old trees, and Mr. Web ?ter in the act of delivering hid great speech. Another engraving will repreaent the steamboats proceeding up the Hudson, with the New York de legations on board. The third engraving will present portraits of the reporters of the Herald and the whig papers ot this city, a* they appeared when engaged in the work of reporting Mr. Webster's speech, for a wager of one thousand dollars. This engraving Will be highly interesting. The reporters are all represented as writing with their left hands, a cir cumstance which requires a few words of explana tion. Our reporters can write with both hands with equal facility, and, indeed, when necessary can report two speakers at a time. Observing them report with the left hand on tliis occasion, as they wished to keep the right hand fresh for writing out their notes, and imagining that there must be some peculiar excellence in that system, the reporters for the other papers imitated them, but not being ex actly "up to the thing," to usi' a familiar but ex pressive phrase, they botched Mr. Webster's speech shamefully, whilst our " unequalled corps" gave, as usual, a full and admirable report. The engrav ing, as will beat once perceived, acquires immense additional interest from this circumstance, record ing as it does a singular occurrence in the history ot reporting. This Weekly Herald will contain our report of the speech, anil altogether will be the most attractive and accurate record of this mighty exhibition of whig strength?whig beauty?and whig eloquence, which could be produced. Our full and graphic Report of the interesting proceedings at the Berk shire Jubilee will be also contained in this splendid Weekly Herald. Price of the whole only 64 cents. Arrival of Steam Ships. The Great Western will probably arrive to-day or to-morrow. We are on the look out for her. Alter her follows the Hibernia on a trial of speed. News for Europe. This afternoon, at a quarter to five o'clock, the letter bags of the Acadia will close in this city. Thut steamer will leave Boston to-morrow, noon, for Halifax and Liverpool. In order to supply the public with the latest news to send by the Acadia, we shall issue a second edition ot the Weekly Herald, at 9 o'clock this morning, with all the intelligence which may reach us in the meantime. We shall also prepare an e*tra edition at 3 o'clock this attcrnoon. Those seeking the. best papers to remit to Europe, can obtain these, in or out of wrappers, at our counter. The Presidential Contest?State of the Country. Whilst the country in all its elements of prosper ity iind greatness is advancing with unexampled ra pidity the great political contest goeB on also wiih great spirit and vigor, and promises to be attended tlmo?t by as much excitement and agitation as thai of 1310, which resulted in the triumph of the Whigs by an immense majority. In the South and South west the birug?le is carried on with rem irkable keenness, and here at the North within the last month the feeling ol both parties has increased very much in intensity and bitterness. Nothing is thought of, or talked of, but the presidential elec tion, and the relative chances of the candidates are the subject of universal speculation and enquiry. It is very clear that the whigs have the brightest prospects in this State, and here, as we have more than once stated, from all tha; we can learn, will be the scene of the great decisive struggle. As every one possessed of ordinary sagacity foresaw the defeat of Mr. Van Buren at the Baltimore Con vention, has proved a heavy blow and sore discou ragement to the Democratic party in this State. The leaders have never recovered from the shock. A strong effort has been made to arouse the " un terrified democracy," but it has, generally speak ing, failed. Every one can see that the agitation is not conducted and managed under the same in fluential guidance as in former days. The most aetive instrumentality at present in the field for Mr Polk, appears to be that of the " Empire Club"? of the extent of whose powers te aid the cause, and of the value of whose Rgency, we believe not very many require special enlightenment. We tnilb the great gunB at the public meetings of the democracy. The Bceptre of old Tammany appears to have been idly cast away, and neither in the newspaper organs, nor in the popular gather ings do we recognize that dignified, bold, confident and authoritative tone and character which distin guished them in other days. It has been found impossible to subdue the lukewarmness, and more than this, the feeling of disapprobation with which the nomination of Mr. Polk has been regarded in this region. The coldness and apathy of the old wire-pullere, office-seekers, and leaders of the democrats, who were accustomed to rally with such enthusiasm under the banner of Martin Van Buren, are readi ly explained. These leaders argue, with what good reason, let our readers judge, that if Mr. Clay be elected, they will have a much better chance of arranging the succession in 1848 to this succession, than if Mr. Polk were to succeed, in case of Mr. Polk's success, the old section of the pirty here at the north, might, indeed, inscribe "Ichabou"on their banner, for assured ly their power and glory would be departed forev er, so far as they of this generation were concern ed. Mr. Calhoun would be enabled then to extin guish the last embers of his antagonists in the de mocrdtic ranks. But if Mr. Clay be elected, these politicians arKii'-, and with what reason let our readers also judgs, that the whig party could not possibly hold togethrr more than the four years of his administration?they would go to pieces?du ring that time the plans of the leaders of the " de mocratic" in this latitude could be properly ma tured?and in 1848 they might very probably calcu late as tiHsuming the sceptre of power. Thus we have explained the present apathy and indifference and want of enthusiasm which pre vail in the camp of the Democrats of this great State. The Whigs are on the contrary, united, zealous, and diligent. Still, although the prospect thus looks cheering for the Whigs, it is very hazard ous to aifmpt anything like positive calculations of the result. The returns from the varioua States heard fr;>m are besides, after all, somewhat decep tive. M iny local circumstances operate in modi fying the result of a gubernatorial or State legisla tive election, that we can hardly rriake with pom tivenees deductions from their relation to the issue of the general election in the fall. * A a impartial and candid review of the whole ground then leads as to conclude that thecontcat will be exceedingly hotaud close, and that at pre sent the chances are in favor of Mr. Clay. A tew weeks may however change the whole aspect of affairs, and amongst other matters of whose proba ble operation we canuet just now judge, is the Inst '?tter of Mr. Clay on annexation. Tiik Puss ok the Revolutionary J?*a.-?We give to-day oa our first page another curioua and interesting batch of extracts from the newspapers published during the memorable era of the revolu tion. The present period, when the whole country is agitated by the fierce excitement of party politics, and when the party press is disgracing the nation, is a fittiug time to exhibit in this way the spirit of the men and the age which gave independence to the United States, and established the liberties we now enjoy. Let these extracts be read with attention. The "proclamation" is a remarkably interesting document. We have not space to-day for extended comment, but shall soon return to this rich miue of revolutionary feeling, principle and patriotism, and present our readers with some extremely interesting and (valuable extracts lrora the same source. Thk " Native Ticket."?It appears that the " Natives," true to their principles, are determined to run a separate ticket at the Fall Election. We have had a glimpse of their doiiigs behind the cur tain, and present the names of the prominent can didates and nominees for Congress and Assembly, which they intend to put forth to obtain the suf frages ol their friends at the ensuing election. We expect in a few days to be able to place the ticket fully completed before our readers, and all that now remain* for them is to select a proper candi date for the Presidency, John Tyler having "clear ed out," and given them aclear stage. The names which have been put forward in caucus among the natives as candidates for Congress?are for the 3d Dutrict, Alderman Miller, 1st Ward, Gen. John Lloyd and J. Phillips Phoenix In the 4th district, James R Whiting, the ex-District Attorney, John H. Williams, the Looking Glass Manufacturer of Broadway, and Jonah Rich, who will probably be the person selected. In the 5ih District, Dr. Jacob Hassen, of 8ih Ward, Elias H. Ely, David E. Wheeler, and T. M. Woodruff. There are sttong chances in favor of Mr. Wheeler's nomination by the Natives. He is the present Scl.ool Commis sioner for the 9:h Ward. 6th District, Geo. Fol som. Hiram Ketchum will probably be nominated Senator. For Assembly, the following candidates will probably be nominated. Mr. Whitney, of th? 9th Ward, one of the most popular and talented speakers of the entire party, it is generally believed, will be nominated without opposition Archibald Meroein, M. D., lit Ward ; Alfred Drawer, 4th Ward; Thomas P. Tcale, 5th Ward s Roderick N. Morrison. 8th Ward ; B. 8. Whitney. 9tn Ward ; John Culver, Uth Ward ; A. A Alvord, 13th Ward ; John J. It De Puy, 16th Wnrd ; George W Savage, 16th Ward ; Joseph Hufty, 4th Ward ; Richard Reed ; Jacob L. Fenu, 13th Ward. We give these proceedings in caucus on unques tionable authority ; and it will therelore be per ceived that the "Natives" are "wide awake." We Bhall in a few days be able to present the ticket for Congress and Assembly, and probably for President and Vice President, to the other con tending parties, to whom for the present we would merely suy?"To your tents, O! Israel." The Natural History of Politics?The Globe and Intelligencer, at Washington, having ex hausted all their store of vituperation and black guardism against each other, and the candidates who*e claims they respectively represent, have now entered on an interesting discussion relative to the character of the hickory tree. '1 he Intelli gencer abuses it as rotten, worthless, and hardly fit lor fuel?the Otobe is quite poetical in its de fence as the most respectable of the denizens of the forest. A little practical knowledge of the properties of the birch, of which they probably did not get enough at school, or they would not be so silly now, would properly complete the education of these intelligent students of natural history. State of Public Feeling in Philadelphia.?A rather amusing illustration of the excited state of party feeling in Philadelphia has been afforded to us in the extreme difficulty which we have experi enced in obtaining a correspondent in that city. We have made various attempts, and tried several correspondents, but they all appear to be afflicted with the prevailing distemper?diseased and exci ted party feeling. On all general subjects of inte rest to the public they have given the news with tolerable industry and accuracy, but the moment they have approached any topic connected with the "Native," or "anti-Native" movements, off" they have gone into fiction, personality and violence. One could not mention the "Natives" without em ploying the most offensive epithets, another was equally savage on the ' anti-Natives," and both of course utterly unfit to correspond with this journal. Our present correspondent has hitherto kept pretty calm and sober, but recently some indications have appeared which threaten an attack of the pre valent epidemic. Let this operate as a caution, and if it be neglected, we must try again. Post Office Espionage.?The Drue Sun, in re plying yesterday to a stupid article in an obscure weekly paper ofthis.city, charging the government ef the United States with having authorized the opening of letters in the Post office in the year 1785, has made a blunder which is quite unpardon able in such a walking cyclopaedia of old almanae lore as our profound contemporary. It represents Washington as having issued the instructions in question and defends him for doing so. Now it happens that Washington had nothing whatever to do with the act alluded to, which was passed by the old Congress, at a time when the illustrious patriot of the revolution was in retirement. Washington did not re-enter on public [life till 1789, when the new government was formed under the Constitu tion. As for the act of 1785 itself, it was perfectly justifiable, under the then existing circumstances, and bears no analogy whatever to the atrocious seal-breaking by the post office officials of the British government. A Hint to thb Western Railroad Company.? The cars which left Buffalo on Sunday last, were thirty-four hours before they reached Albany, and yet run above twenty miles per hour ! Why should the mail wait so many hours at Rochester 1 Why should it loiter at so many places for refreshment 1 Three meals are quite sufficient for that journey, and they require but one hour, while 15 hours would suffice to transport the letters between Albany and Buffalo; and the Herald would reach the fat West oae day sooner, and gratify many thousands, who are anniousfor early information, in regard tobusi nera even more than politics. When complaints are made about this silly de lay, the answer is?"Oh! it is a great work ac complished in a short time!" As if that was a reason for not reaping all tho advantages which this really grand work offers. The rails are as good as on the Birmingham road, the carriages are easier, and the pace should be twenty-five miles per hour. The Birmingham mail does not step one moment at Walford, (the letter-bag of which, equals that of Rochester) but drops the bag on the ground, and catches the other in a net, opened for that purpose, and the utility of our railroad will be only half enjoyed, until similar activity is enforced thereon Such activity would not require an ex traordinary outlay, but it would add surprisingly to the number of passengers; for it is not the money, oost only, which deters travelling?but the loss of time, (which isfarmore valuable) and the unenm lonable night, which prevents many ladies, infirm people, and children, from undertaking the jour ney. The transportation is now attdious punish nent, and it might be made a pleasant excursion; nor would the change require above three weeks to be effected. Pai.mo'? Theatre.?A very splendid series of in tertsinments are offered at this house this evening for the benefit of Mr. Parsloe. No one deserves a bumper belter than lie, and let him have it. He certainly presents a most liberal bill of fare. Packets for Europe.?Three packets, the Columbus, for Liverpool ; Ulica, for Havre; and St. James, for London, will sail hence next Monday. Da. Lahdnkr's Lkctckk on thi Evidences or th* Existence or the Deity.?Dr. Lardner pro po?e? to give on Sunday evening at Palmo's, the Bridgwater Lecture. It was given on the Sunday evenings in Boston and Philadelphia last season, with the most extraordinary success. At Boston, especially, the audiences were immense. The first evening about 2,000 people were admitted at the door, and half as many more left unable to approach it. This excitement continued every Sunday while the Doctor remained there. The subject is?"The evidences obtained ftom the phenomena of nature to prove that the universe is sustained by an omni potent immaterial power, exercising in a degree i and to an extent which has no limits, the attributes of wisdom and benevolence, aud that except, by admitting the existence of such a power, it is im possible, on the admitted principles of Bacon's me thod of reasoning, to explain or understand the material world, while, by its admission, all be comes clear and intelligible." Dr. Lardner intsnds j to avail himself of all the illustrative apparatus on this occasion to relieve what might otherwise be heavy in a discoureive attempt ot this sort. We learn that Dr. Lardner has mentioned his design to a number of intelligent and distinguished friends (among others to the Mayor) who have ex pressed much gratification at the benefit which ! may attend such an employment of the Sunday ; evening by many who would otherwise pass it in I listless idleness, or perhaps worse. For our own part, we hail this project with great satisfaction, as one eminently worthy of the patronage ot all en- j lightened friends of truth and Sabbatti sanctifics- | tion, and cannot doubt that he will be as success ful here as in our sister cities. Late from St ^Dominoo.?It is stated by Capt. Mabee, of the Tbpaz, arrived yesterday in nine teen days from Port au Piatt, that matters in Hayti were in a very unsettled stute, and it was uncertain what course would be pursued by the government with the Spanish part of the island. President Guerriere had left Port au Prince for the North, and would holif a conference with the generals and chiefs of the army, when measures would be adopt ed for the government of the whole island. The opinion prevailed that the Haytians would attempt to recover the eastern part of the island, and the Spanish party were using every means in their power to strengthen their position. Some misun derstanding had arisen between the chiefs ot the ?ast, in consequence of one section having appoint ed General Duarte as President without consulting the others. Duarte had, however, resigned, and delegates had gone to the city of St. Domingo for the purpose of drawing up a constitution and no minating a President. General Santana, it waB thought, would be elected. Trade throughout the island, was very much de pressed, with little prospect of amendment. New Dky Dock.?It is expected that work will shortly be commenced, at Wallabout, on the new National Dry Dock. This affair is to be a splendid one, and we hope that no pains will be spared to render it sufficient (or all lime to come. Let those who have the superintendence of its construction have it made long, deep, and wide enough to take m two line of battle ships if necessary. If this great work is managed.by our efficient naval officers, it will be a dock which we may be proud of; but if inspectors at $8 a day are selected to oversee it, what will it be! Evenings ok Irish Minstrklsy.?Mr. McMi chael's musical entertainment of last evening, af forded the most universal deliglit to the audience. In praise of the subject little need be said ; a hear ing of its expounder is better adapted to give him that high place aa an artist, which he merits, than the most elaborate eulogy. We do not use the term artist in iis technical sense; the powerful in fluence which Mr. McMichael exercises over his au dience is unattainable by mere art?by any Hystenr of rules, however, apposite or universal; it has its origin in deep pathos?in the sympathetic impulses of the heart. Mr. McMichael, and his subject, Irish Minstrelsy, constitute a very happy combina tion ; his manner and address?his versatility of feeling, a true type of the best specimens of his countrymen?and a faithful abridgement of all that is comic, humorous, hilarious?simple, yet sublime, iu the national character. His voice, too, ia full of melody; as to the ose made of it, it is best shown by the enthusistic applause which fol lowed each song. We confidently expect to hear it ere long shed a soul of music over multitudes, and that New York will extend a patronage t* Irish Minstrelsy commensurate with the deserts of the one, and the good taBte of the other. That good taste cannot*be represented by hundreds?we must have thousands to hear Mr. McMichael. Increase in the Whale Fishery.?We learn from the best authority that between fifty and sixty ships have this yeat been purchased for the whale fishery. Upwards of twenty of these were bought here; the remainder principally at the east. Our famous packets when they become too small for packet service, go into the whale catching business. They are considered the best. One would imagine that the fishery would be overdone, and such was thought to be the case twenty years ago; yet the business goes on increasing and fortunes continue to be made, notwithstanding the introduction of lard oil and the increase in the use of all sorts of gas. We do, however, supply nearly all Europe, es foreign whalers cannot compete with us in catch ing the 14 Monsters of the Deep." And it is a fact well worthy of notice, that nearly all the French and other foreign whale ships are officered by Americans. Elegance, Fashion and Economy.?We per ceive by an advertisement in another column that the great fashionable tailoring establishment of Jennings fc Co., in Broadway, have juat received a large supply of elegant goods for the fall season. This is the establishment whose bookkeeper, it will be recollected by many of our readers, ena bled Mr. N. P. Willis so satisfactorily to re|>el the gross attack of some obscure paper down east, which accused that distinguished leader Of the haut ton of practising the somewhat fashionable virtue of ntglecting the tailor's bill. Trotting Match at Albany.?The announce ment that Lady Suffolk with Cayuga Chief, Wash ington and Moscow, would trot at the Hull's Head on Thursday attracted more than a usual number of persons. The 1st heat was won by Lady Suffolk with great ease. Time 2,40. Cayuga Chief bolted from the course and threw his driver. He was of I courn; distanced. The 2nd heat waa also won by Lady Suffolk. Time 2,34|. Moscow dis taaced. The third and last heat was between Washington and Lady Suffolk, the Lady of courae won. Time on this heat 2,88. It rained all the time and the track was heavy. Important from Nauvoo.?The inhabitants of the Holy City of Nauvoo, have issued a manifesto declaring that they will take no part in the presi dential contest, as neither of the candidates are fit men to receive their votea. This will exercise al most as important an influence on the result of the election aa the withdrawal of Captain Tyler. The Oreat Pedestrian Coxtest.?On reference to an advertisement in another part of the paper, it will he seen that all entries for the foot rare to take place on the Beacon Course on the 14th of October, must be made on or before the 20ili of September. The large amount offered in purses is well worth contending for. Harrison Union, No. 2?Daughters or Tem perance.?This society of ladies are about tore peat their excursion to Verplanck's Point, on Mon day, the 2d of September. We are informed, that the beautiful grove adjoining the landing, ia kindly and gratuitously tendered by the proprietor, who will also fit it up with seats, dec., for. the occasion. City Intelligence.

Hiuhway Ilonaaav and Recovery or a valuable Gold W?tch ?The valuable gold watch taken from Andrew 11 Fuweli, of 419 Broadway, who was knocked dowu and robbed in Ann atreet on Friday night of l ist week, was recovered yeaterday at Hobokeu by a gentleman named Cook Two men oame to Hobokeu in the after noon and walked to Van Voorst'* Hotel, near the race course, where they obtained a crew bar and went to a cliff of rocks near bv, and procured a gold watch, which one of them said he had deposited a few duy* be!ore. and intended to *ell it to hi* companiou lor $30. The land lord inspected them of some wrxug, and comainnicaled his suspicions to Mr. Cook, who followed them to the terry boat and arrested them, and recovered the watch ? They 'old contradictory storie*, but the man who claimed the watch, whose nume i* Brian, bay* he;ruceived it from a friend at the corner of Broadway and Ann street. Hia associate wa* ?xamincd and held as a witness in the case. There is no doubt that it is the wutch that was taken from Mr. Powell, which was valued at $176, and for the recovery of wnich a liberal reward ha* been offered. Sea way Robbeby.?The schooner Charlotte, of Hudson, lying Ht thu dock of Mesir* Smith & Co.. (ail merchants) near the Navy Yard, was robbed on Thursday evening ef a trunk, containing a quantity of clothing, among which were pantaloon*, shirts, drawer*, eighteen shirt bosoms, thirty shirt collars, cotton sheets, two white bed spreads, pillow case*, black *ack coat, and other article* ol cloth ing to the value of $110 ; also a pair ol gold spectacle*, value $10 ; apy gla<*, quadrant, and nautical book*, value $60; the property ol iLdwerd H.

Skllinu Liquon on Sunday ?The contemptible farce ol entertaining complaints against the hotel* and respect able public bouses of our city for selling liquoi on Sunday, was ugaiu partially heard before Justice Drinker at the Lower Police Office yesterday, and po-'ponad until Wed nesday afternoon next, at 4 o'clock.

Although the stock market remain! vary much de pressed, State itocki show but a very alight variation from former prlcaa. The condition of commercial affairs throughout the country prevents operators from going into speculations very deep, and cansea the preaent atag nation in Wall street. While the atock apeculators are doing nothing, undecided how to act, the merchants, particularly the importers, are unusually buay. The Collector of the port has been compelled, ia consequence of the preaa of busineaa, to chaage the hours for busiaeaa at the Cuatom Houae, from 9 to I, instead oi 10 to S. The importationa are coming in mere rapidly than ever, and the movementa of trade were never more active The job bers are doing a tremendous business, a busineaa much larger than the moat aanguine anticipated. The aactiou houses have commenced their tall sales, but aa yet they have not been very ex ten el ve. The importer! are active* ly engaged supplying the demand direct from the job bers; and until that ceaaea, or becomes greatly dimin ished, the auction rooms will not be very well filled. Our importers and foreign commisxion houaee have on hand enormoua atocka, which are daily increaaing, notwithstanding the immense demand irom the lo cal trade. Amidst all thia apparent prosperity, the seeds of a revulsion have been sowed. The enormous importations coming in and passing from firat to second handa, muat be paid for. So long aa th?y remain in the hauda of tho commission houses to which they were con signed, the value is not in fact placed to the indebtedness of the country and the payment cannot be demanded, but the moment these foreign manufactures paaa into second handa, a debt ia contracted ;that muat be paid from eredita created by our exports or by shipping the precioua metals. The extant of our foreign and domestic trade already calls for some further expansion in the movement of the banks to supply the increaaing demand for money. The rate of interest has already reached the legal atandard, and the banka arc tranafering their loane from brokers and stock speculators to the commercial clasaec. The distribution through tho country of the immense importations of merchandise muat create a very great amount of credits and idflate trade beyond n sate and proper limit. Unless our foreign trade auddenly l?comea contracted, we fear the reeaJfc of the next two years' buainecs. A levulaion muat de stroy hundreds who imagine they are now engaged in the moat prosperous business possible, and whose only object at present is to extend their operations as far aa their credits will permit. Stato Stocks have experienced very little improvement in actual value The attempt to sell a division of the publio works of Pennsylvania having failed, many are disposed to believe that all the other aourcec of revenue provided by the laat legislature will prove as bad.
