The Little OTonnell of Rhode Island in hit Ceil. THE GREAT MEETING Of th? Democrats at Trsnton. The "Stars" at the Park. We bhall issue to morrow morning, on? of the most interesting or our series of Pictorial Hir au>8, which has attained a degree of popularity altogether unprecedented in the history of illustra ted publications. This IVnkltf Herald wilt contain a graphic and life-like illustration of Dorr?the Little O'Connell of that chivalric State?in his cell, in the act of making his noon-day repast, consisting ol u bowl <>i pea-soup; dipping a crust of bread into the soup, with one hand, whilst with the other, he brushes away the flies, (which have uttained a re markable magnitude and ferocity in his apart ment) with an elegant fan of his own manufacture. This will be really a magnificent engraving. Another illustration will also be given, convey ing an accurate idea of the immense assemblage of the democracy at Trenton, which took place yesterday; together with an accurate view of the Statu House of New Jersey. Thi? will be a beautiful engrnving, and will match the one which we save last week illustrative of the great Mass Convention of the whigs at Albany. This IVetkly Herald will also contain an engrav ing illustrative of a scene in "Othello," as played at the Park this week, with portraitsof Mr. Anderson and Mr. Dyott. Price of the whole only 6.J cents. The Mormon Discujsuues.?We are compelled by a press of important matter to defer the continu ation of the " Wonderful Disclosures " until to morrow. Highly Important from Syracuse?Silas Wright Nominated for Governor?Brcath leaa Interest of the Political Contest. By the Albany steamer last evening, we re ceived the important political intelligence of the nomination of Silas Wright for Governor of New York, by the democratic Convention, held at Syracuse on Wednesday ; and, also, of Addison Gardener, of Rochester, for his Lieutenant. This intelligence was contained in the Albany papers, and had been generally expected for several days past. The nomination of this great statesman was first predicted in this journal many months ago, from i he circumstance that no other name could be po tent enough to unite the elements of the " fierce democracie" of New York. It is now matter of history?but whether he will be elected we thall not venture yet to predict, till we have had time to cast his horoscope again during the ensuing week. This is a very important event in the political movements of the day. On this single fact may hang the great issue of the contest for the Presidency. By the nomination of Mr. Wright all the oddb and ends, all the clu/utt and roleriet of the democracy of New York are united in Savor of the Presidential nominations of Baltimore. The re jection o( Mr. Van Buren on that occasion had thrown the vote of New York into the hands of the Whigs and in favorof Mr. Clay. The nomina tion of Wright reunites all the discordant ele ments, and places him in the front as a candidate for the Presidency in 1848, and hence New York democracy is now reconciled in all its parts, to Polk and Dallas, and we may expect one of the most furious, boisterous, enthusiastic onsets at the polls ill favor of Polk, Dallas and Wright, that ever took place in the Empire State. Last night, as soon as the news was circulated through the city, the Tammany politicians, in all their picturesque haunts of elegance and vulgarity, were perfectly crazy with delight, and if to-day be not cool and cooling, we are afraid that some of them will be qualified for the lunatic asylum, or the retreat of drunkards, before night. It is generally admitted on all hands, that the 36 votes of New York wil| determine the Presidency?whoever gets these votes will ascend the steps of the White House, and pocket the #25,000 per annum. Now, Mr. Wright is one ef the ablest, strongest, most saga elous, and most popular statesmen that ever New York had As a public man, he is tar superior to Van Buren in every point of view. Silas Wright has a heart?he has a soul?he is a man of most comprehensive mind, and, above all, he is not a vain, contemptible, dandy politician, without feeling or common sense. Ne is the man who will propably cal forth the democracy in all its fury and uproar. But mors than that, hisprudence,skill and talent have the fall confidence of the financial and commercial clas ses of New York. We understand that the whole banking interest of NewYork will secretly?but the more efficiently by this very secresy? make a power ful and united support in favor of the democracy.? This unexpected movement in the moneyed class es arises from the fear that if the Whigs get the ascendancy in the State, the public debt will be increased and the public credit thereby depre eiated, as in the time of Mr. Seward. Another and mora important dread by the financial class as is that arising from the proposed establishment of;& National Bank of #50,000,<100, by which the value of the State Banks would be diminished^ and thus vitally affect the interests of every per son connected with that system throughout the rountry. In the approaching election, we have no doubt but that the State Banks can wield an im mense influence, and who can doubt but it will be exerted in every way against the party that threat ens to establish a grand national competitor to erush and to depreciate their value, stocks, profits and interests Touch a man's pocket and you touch his vote. Looking, therefore, at the Syracuse movement in every point of view, it gives a degree of interest to the Presidential contest which reaches perfect intensity. If the wbigs, at their approaching C?n vention, do not nominate a strong man, their prospects become instantly clouded. Millard Fillmore, also a great statesman, and a worthy man on the other side, will have to be brought forward, to give any thing like an equipoise to the contest. He is the only man that can contend on fair terms with Silas Wright. If Mr. Fillmore is put forth, then the fight will be beautiful?but yet the banking interest and the abo lition interest may determine the day, and give the vote of New York to that party whose views suit, oneertain points, them best. We shall watch intently and report progress correctly. Political Affairs in Nkw Jkrsrt.?The demo crats, in recent convention, nominated John ft. Thompson, fcsq., as their candidate for Governor at the ensuing election. Mr. Thompson is a very popalar and wealthy man in New Jersey, and a brother in-law of Captain Stockton. It is said that he is the strongest candidate (hat the democrats <m!d have selaetei. Lisaarr Paktt ?The following are the Liberty Caadidates for Assembly ?? Anthony Kane, Daniel II.

It is understood to he the intention not to nomin candidates for Congresa. A Senatorial nomin nliwn will, however, be made Thk Abolition Movmvr in thii State.?Th4 recent letter of Mr. Clay iu favor of the annexatioa of Trias, has created quit* a stir among the abo lilionisu of this Stater This party, it may bo ??id, was not ia existence when Gea. Harriaon was elected in 1840, bnt since that time they have gain ed such strength as to be able, at the election of last year, to give near upon 17,000 votes; and it is now calculated by the ino?t ardent supporters of both candidate*, that this vote will be given in favor of the abolition candidate, and that their vote at ihe forthcoming election in November will be from 0,000 to 25,000 This contingency hasthrowu great fear into the ranks of the whigs, and equal joy among the demo crats. Out of this it may be reckoned that three fourths will be taken from the whig party, and therefore it will be so many votes abstracted from Mr. C!ay. In 1840, the whigs carried the election for Harrison by about 22,000 votes, while out of this number Gov. Seward only received 10,000 or 12,000. With thia formidable exertion, it Mr. Clay succeeds in getting the ssat, it will be with a very close vote, much mote so than we ever anti ei|>aled. la looking over the Albany Patriot, the grea' orgau of the abolition party, we observed prepara tions being made for organixing the whole of the State on the presidential question in favor of Birney. There is to be a great convention, poat poned from the 19th, at Utica, on the 25th and 26th instants; that all the candidates named for Presi dent, Vice President, for the State, and Congress, are the principal leaders of the abolition move, ment. Liberty meetings are announced to be held in various parts of the State during the present month. The same paper contains reports from va rious other parts of the Union, showing a conside rable increase in the party, and the great exertions they are making. From all these movements, and from the various etlorts of the democrats?from the speeches of Mr. Webster against annexation while the candi date of his party is in favor of it, will make a dif ference of some 80,000 votes to the whig party, and we should not be surprised if it left Mr. Clay very little chance of carrying the State of New York. We regret this, as he has come out in favor of annexation ; we would rather he had the settling of this great question than any other man. But at all events, the truth must be told, and we care not so much who the man ia, if good will come. The Texas question ia gaining ground every day. The very efforts of Mr. Webster have only strengthened its momentum. Theatrical and Operatic Movements ?Mad. Albertazzi and Mr. II. Phillips are shortly expect ed to arrive in this country. Tiiey have been en gaged by Mr. Simpson, and will make their appear ance at the Park. The former ia well known to tame aa one of the great artists of the day; the other equally bo as a musician and vocalist. There ia little doubt but these two great performers, will prove very attractive, and may, in some measure, revive the fallen fortunes of Old Drury. They will do better than the present tragic stars. The Seguins are also expected in a short time to return to this country,accompanied by a celebrated vocalist, Mr. Frazer; a musician formerly of Edin burgh, and who is nighly estimated throughout Great Britain. The Seguins are going on their own hook, and no doubt will be as attractive as ever. In the meanwhile,what has become of the Italian Opera Company that was so much talked of at the close of the last season"! What is Mr. Palmo about 1 His proceedings are very anxiously looked for, and it is hoped thai in as short time as possible something satisfactory will be heard from Ihis quarter. Is Mad'lle Borghese now in thia city1!? Where is Valtelini 1 How is his temper1? A rumor prevailed a few days since that Mr. H. Russell had returned to this country in one of the steamers lhat had recently arrived, inconsequence of a passenger of the same name being on board. Mr. Russell is engaged at some of the great musi cal festivals which are to be held in England a! the close ol the present and ensuing months, and con sequently cannot return, if he ever does, for some time to come. The Washington Irving.?This is the name of a new and beautiful Steamboat, built for the pur pose of running daily tripe from this city to Croton, Sing Sing, and the intermediate landing places. She is 130 feet long, by 30 wide, with a ladies sa loon of 32 feet. She is one of the neatest and handsomest of all the water craft on the North River. Her interior arrangements aomport admirably with her external appearance, and her first trip on Saturday last,seem ed to show a combination of mind and matter, so delicately did she glide over the waters of the Hud son. On her arrival at Tarrytown, she was wel comed by several hundred citizens, under a dis charge of artillery. All the way up the river she was greeted with great cordiality, and at YonkerB, was met by the Sing Sing braes band, saluted with cannon, &c. The Washington Irving is under the command of Capt. H. Tuthill, and from present appearances she will probably be liberally supported. Vermont Election. -1844 - WTtig. Drm. Jiutfn. Whig. Drm. Jiho'n.

We do not give the full vote this year in all the towns heard from, and cannot, therefore, tell with much cer tainty whether or not the aggregate vote exhibits a decrease. What full returns we have received, however, indicate an increase in the Whig and abo lition strength, and a ditnunition in that of their op ponents. Theatricals, Mons.

Nuisance in Broadway.?We do not believe that raciag was ever carried lo such an extent in Broadway by the omnibus drivers ns it is at pre sent. Scarcely an hour passes that one or two races do not take place, endangering the lives of those riding and those crossing the street. And not only are the lives of our citizens placed in jeo pardy by these thoughtless drivers, but the dre.-ses of the ladies are ruined by the street mud spattered upon them by the racing liorsea. It is to be hoped that Mayor Harper will turn his attention at once to this great grievance, and have every driver who goes laster than the law allows arrested and pun ished. Something of this kind mast be done or the Coroner's business will most surely increase. Mr. Green's Second Lkciitrk on GamimM?

One ef the largest, if not the veiy largest, politi cat gatherings ever seen within the iiinita of New Jersey, took place yesterday at Trenton, iu the neighborhood of the battle-ground. From an early hour in the morning the delegations kept pouring in, and on the arrival of the first extra train from New Yoik,consisting of twenty-two cars, crowded to exceae, the number on the reception ground at the railroad depot numbered many thousands. About one o'clock the vast proceasiou began to move towards the place of meeting, at the State House, llere udmirable arrangements had been made for the speakers and reporters, and as the various bodies and delegations marched on the ground the scene was imposing in the extreme. First came the southern delegation from New York, preceded by a fine band of music and a very hand some banner. After them came the delegations from the several counties in the Stats, democratic clubs, and other bodies Amongst the banners we particularly noticed the following ooooooo*ooaooooooooooooooooooooooooooo* o o o Ti utb crushed to Earth o o o o in 1S40 o o o o Will riie again o o ? o in 1944 o 00*0000000oocoooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooaooooooooooooooooooooooooooooiooooo o OREGON AND TEXAS. o o o 0000000000*0000000000000000000000000000 00*00000000000000000000000000000000000 ? o o Fan Gorcsnoa, o o J.

Amongst thena the moat remarkable were, one representing Mr. Polk mounted on a fine white horse, cantering gaily to wards Texas, with Mr. Clay endeavoring, like ike witch of Alloway,when pursuing Tarn O'Shanter, to seize the tail of Mr. Polk's charger. Another was a rooster with the face of Mr. Clay, turning north and south us the passing breeze dictated. Magnificent wreaths and huge bouquets, presented by the young ladies of several of the Counties to the Delegations, were also borne in the procession, and added much to the general eflect. When the almost interminable line of the proces sion had at last filed into the Htate House ground, and the numerous bodies composing it had taken up their respective positione.we surveyed the ground with the view ol estimating the number assembled which we set down as about fifteen thousand. A (rrat degree of enthusiasm appeared to ani" mate the multitude, and umid loud cheering the meeting was organized by the nomination of Ebkn. Evans, Esq. as Chairman. On taking the chair, Mr. Evaws said : I cannot but feel proud in being called to this oflice. It 1 I commit any errors, 1 must only throw myself on vour indulgence. From my boyhood I have been a democrat. I took part in the election of Thomas Jefferson, and have always adhered to the same faith. I have merely to add that I shall endeavor to discharge, to the utmoet of my ability, the duties of this position to which you have called me. A Vice President from each of the couuties in the State was then chosen, as also a number of Se CfHer'e there were loud calls for "Silas Wright," which were only silenced by the Chairman inform ing the meeting that a letter from Mr. Wright had been received stating that it was utterly impossible for him to attend ThiB announcement appeared to create a strong feeling of disappointment. An aged revolutionary soldier named Stephen Berth was here brought on the stand, and introduc ed to the meeting by one of the Vice Prendents_ It was stated that Mr. Berth would be one hundred years old next Saturday, that he had fought under Washington on the adjaceut battle ground, and like the old "red cedars" he was still in the line he was still faithfil to the principles for which he had fought in youth under the banner of the illus trious hero of tLe Revolution. (Loud cheers.) l!ere;one of the marshals oftheday rode in iront of the platform, and announced that Silas.Wright had received the unanimoue nomination tor Gov ernor of the State of New York. This announce meat was received with loud and long continued ^Loud'criei now arose for "Captain Stockton"? "Captain Stockton," on which the Chairman stated that the gentlemen resident in New Jersey who in tended to address the assembly, wished to exhibit proper courtesy to the strangers who honored the meeting withtneir pretence, and that it they would but exercise a little patience they would soon see the Captain. (Cheers.) Joins M.

Ah, fellow citizens, a long experience has taught one that it i? not upon the hurting* that enthusiasm depends ; it rife* from the people towards the hustings.

(Continued cheering.) You never can please these federalists unless you cower before Eng land. They tell us we have no generals to command in case we weut to war. Is not Old Hickory alive?

Make way, I say, tor the young American Buffalo?ho has not yet got land enough lie wants more land as his cool shelte in mnimer?he wants more land for his beautiful pasture grounds.

(Cheers ) Ah ! fellow c.tizf-ns, I have glad tidings to impart. From the evening that followed the Baltimore Convention, niter the nomination which so happily terminated; that terrible day which poured tor rents of gladnuss on the hearts of the federalists?! shall never forget it. 1 see one that partook of mv trouble that gentleman with the white hat?it was a terrible sight. The waters were agitated?the billows tossed their mad heads on high?the old ship oi the United States had well nigh sprained her cable. The wliigs cried out, "It will break !" " No !" I said?it is oi American iron?it is forged by the |>eople in the furnaceof freedom?they hammered it with the arms, and it will weather the storm." It did so and that old cable ia so taught that the grand ship may coil her anchor in safety at the rio del Norte, and ride in safety on the frozen ocuan (cheering.) Ah, fellow citi zens, at that were the foes of our institutions striving to divide the Union?let ttem try to divide it if thev can There is a principle of adhesion in this Union which will show that whoever attempts to divide it will be crushed in that attempt Oh, follow {(citizens, at that "moment when the tempest raged the democracy came, and Ilk" that herd which Jupiter called into his service, it spread its wings, at the deliberation, and hove forth to the world the numes of Polk and Dallas (applause ) Names which already have, from the cataract of the Green Mountains to the Missouii, from the St. Johns till the mys ty father of waters, the Mississippi, have heen echoed by a free people?and there is uot one of the great States which are watered by the Mississippi that is not a democratic State. (Applause) Some people told me when I began, to tread lightly on the Texas question Tread lightly ! Why I jumped right into it. (Applause.) I bolted straight at it, and your charms reached my heart. Ah, one maxim I have learned from tne great Jackson,and that is, "a nation must obey its geography more than its constitution." The one is made by man; but those grand features which constitutes geographical boundaries are written by the fingers of him who made the world. (LoU'i applause) Go on great and mighty people ; do not be daunted by one of those who say we have enough land?from your high destiny of governing the continent?not by the sheeding of blood?nut by the wisdom andjustice of your measures. Let those who bred it b--lore send in the Hessians, and we will sting them with something worse than Hessian flies. (Laugh ter and cheering.) Major Davezac then took u,i the Uni ted States Bank an I treated it in a very forcible manner, affording endless amusement by his sallies of mirth?and the pinn nancy of his remarks. The Hon John McKkon was then loudly called for, and biting introduced to the assemblage, was greeted with en thusiastic cheering, which lasted tor romii minutes. H said, Fellow Democrats ! To the kindness ol'your Exec utiveCommittee, I am indebted lor the proud privileged addressing you this evening. Believe mo it is with somi diffidence that I present my sell to you at this late hour? I am aware that you are fatigued by standing no lon(|, and that you have also been listening with great delight to the eloquence of the gentle men? who have preceded me, -and I assure you nothing but asenso of duty which 1 owe the cause, could lead me tn trespass upon your time and patience? (Cheers, and cries of "go on") It is to me a ijroat tjratifi cation to meet the New Jersey democracy here at one of the shrines of freedom. It was" at Trenton the droop ing spirits of the Revolutionary army were re-animated, and that a new aspect was given to the revolutionary struggle. May not this place, with nil its hallowed and inspiring associations, be destined to give a brighter a: pert?bright at it already is?to the democratic cause, pf for ling omens of coming triumph which cannot fail to cheer every heart? (Immense dueling) Thero are great questions now dividing the whole countn ?questions ot vast importance?questions which cro not to be hastily or lightly discussed, but which are to be treated with all that deep solemnity and attention which their character! demands. They|are (questions, which, it decided in favor of the whips, must inevitably be followed by results which will become bo interwoven with all the great interests of the country, and exercise so influential an agency of evil, that no democrat who is animated bv the genuine patriotic spirit, which is the living principled his crecd, can far a moment permit himself to regard them without the deepest conecrn. Those questions have rei'e rence to both the domestic andfareign policyof the country The domestic questions relate to the Tariff, a Bank of the United States, the distribution of the land revenues, and the maintenance of the veto power. The questions con nected with the foreign policy of the country, refer to the annexation of Texas, and tho occupation of Oregon. I will not detain you with any discussion in detail of those questions, but I propose on this occasion fairly to meet my Whig friends, if any there be presen*. and dis cuss these topics as they are submitted to the country. Allow me, in the first place to meet a charge deliberately made ugainst an honorable friend of mine. Mr. Butler, and myself. When 1 addressed a portion of the New Jersey democracy at New ark some shoit time since, one of tho editors of a Newark paper, totally unknowu to me, and who certainly could not, ns I supposed, have hoi anypersonal feeling or hostil ity, deliberately charged Mr. Butler and myrelf with ut tering falsehood. He stated that we charged the whig* with intending to settle in the country a bank of the U. States. I now reiterate tint charge I assert that no hon orable man?and 1 put it thus to that party editor, and in the face of these thousands?no honorable man can deny that a Bank of theU. States is a measure of the whig party, and for evidence of that I produce Mr. Clay himself (Cheers) I am not hereto amuse you with any flights ot fancy. This is a topic to be diacussed rather ns a matter of business than as a theme for rhetorical flourish ; and I trust yon will bear with me patiently whilst I make out this charge against the whig party. I was present in the Congress of the United St '.'.es in the extra session of 1841. Mr. Clay and myself travelled from Baltimore to Washington together?and he and I arc very good personal friends- I like him personally much, but I must s.iy that I abhor his polities. (A laugh and cheers.) Well. 1 remarked to him?"It is very warm weather, and I trust that you will not have any tiling up except what ?elates to the finnnces of the couutry." Mr. Clay replied, "I suppose yeu mean to give us the directions?" ''No," said I, "we are. as you well knew, in a lean minority of s?mc forty in the House, and can only expose to the coun try the wrong course you are pursuing." He then said that be would submit all the whig measures in due course of time. Well, then, in the Senate ot U. 8., on 27th Julv, 1841, Mr. Clay made this remark on the Fiscal Bank bill: " It we pass a1) other contemplated measures, and fail to pass this, we shall fall far vhort of the just expectations ol a suffering people. But the passage of this only, without any other measure, would have fully justified tho convo cation of Congress." (Cheers.) But near him still lur ther. In the Senate, August 19, 1R4I, in the debate on the veto of his favorite bank bill, Mr. Clay makes the follow" ing a part of his lamentation : " I came to Washington at the commencement of the session with the most confident and buoyant hopes that the whigs would be able to carry all their prominent measures, and especially a Bank of the United States, by tar the one ef thegreatest immediate importance." (Loud cheers ) I was present and heard Oreen of Kentuckysay that Mr. Clay was the embodiment of whig principles This has never been disputed, and wo are quite justified in regarding his declarations nn the subject as thoie of his party. I consider Mr. Clav their great idol?and as a man of talent, and I believe the ablest exponent of their principles worthy to betaken a* their representative. We find, also, that Mr. Clay declared at Macon, Georgia, that " he was in fevor of a Bank of the United States All nations give us the example." We also find that Mr. Clay at Charleston was still more explicit. According to the Charleston Courier, Mr. Clay's own organ, " he assumed that Panks rind tho Banking system would continue to exist under the auspi ces of the States, and thence inferred the necessity of u National Bank to regulate and control the system, and keep it fiom explosion and mischief, lie ulso insisted on a National Bank as necessary to secure aNationalCurrenc.y " I submit it to the honorable men in tho Whig party,if this is not a fair decloiation of Whig principles, and of a main whig principle as understood and contended for by their great leader, Mr. (.'lay himself. (Loud cheers ) Now, with these reiterated declarations on the part of Mr.Clay, I onlyask you,are you willing to have a repetition ot those disasters, and that dishonor which followed the estab lishm<nt ?f aU S Bank' ("No," "no," and cheering.) Are you willing to have new violations of public faith written in tears of blood; I a?k the unprejudiced p. ople of this country whether,if the democratic patty were wrong m any is?ue but this ol a bank, they would not on that account alone, rightfully demand tho support ol their fellow citizens? (Cheers.) I shall not at tempt tn go through the other questions which are connected with our domestic policy, but will call your attention at once to those two questions which are some what "shied,'' I believe I may say, by the demonscy In some sections of the country,hut which will not, i any manner be avoided I reler to the Oregon and Togas questions?as a party we sre us much b >und to support these m< a?ure* as we are to oppose a Hank of tho United States Was not Mr. Polk selected as the candidate ol the party because ho was in f?vor of this measure, and Mr Van Buten set aside, amontrst other ren'ons/beennse he was opposed to Texas. (Cheers) And did not the Com nriittee on Hosolutions of th" Paltimom Convention, ot whichl my owrsuan, Mr. Rntler, was n member, re port ono in favor of Texan, ami did not the Con vention endorse it / Did not the thirty-six dele Sates f'-om Now York endorse it? Did not yours en orse it! And are we not now in honor bound to stand up for it, and rise or fall with the inscription on our ban ners, "Oregon ami Texas!" (Loud doers.)
