AIEW YORK HERALD. SfW York, Monday, September 9, 1S44. Tlte Tariff la the KImIIom. We give in another part of our journal, the able and eloquent speech of Mr. Clayton, oi Delaware, delivered a few days a*o before a maaa meeting of the whigs iu Lancaster, Pennsylvania?thin speech being the most clear and practical exposition of the position of the whigs on the tariff question at the approaching election for chief magistrate of this Republic. In the speech is also embraced ano ther letter from Mr. Clay, defining for the fortieth time his position on the tariff, and declaring that he ia opposed to the repeal of the present law ?but Buch a declaration is incomplete, for who is not opposed to the total repeal ?f the present law, without substituting any thing better in its place 1 We cannot believe that he is against a modification of some kind. This tariff question is now the complete sport of political parties. What is its history and position ? For many years after the establibhm,>nt of the government, the tariff was deemed merely a finan cial and practical question?itwasnottakenholdof by mere part y. Tfi is position continued down to the close of the last war. On the establishment of peace, a new tariff was passed, in which both Mr. Clay and Calhoun united in the same policy and like views? i that is, a tariff for revenue, with discriminations for protection. In a few years afterwards, princi pally growing out of the derangement of the cur rency, caused by financial mismanagement, the ma nufacturers called for higher duties to save their stocks from depreciation and themselves from loss. In this movement Mr. Clay assumed the lead, called it the "American System"?the " protec tion of native against foreign labor;" nor was there any particular opposition made to the policy by the South, or any other quarter, with the ex ception of that which came from the mercantile in terest of Buston, which Mr. Webster represented. While Mr. Clay was thus making the manufactu ring interest his peculiar favorite, Mr. Calhoun sought to do the same with the financial, by pro jecting a splendid plan of internal improvements. In process of time, however, the high tariff of 1829 was passed, and then Mr. Calhoun and the South made the question political?and in the elections of that year between Jackson and Adams, the tariff was introduced into the political elements throughout the country. It is pingular, however, that both parties at the north were in favor of a protective tariff?as both parties at the south were against it. The tariff' question, therefore, had very little influence at the polls, either at the south, north or west?and in the elections of 1832, 1836, and 1840, the tariff was a very unimportant question among the people. In 1840, coonskins and hard eider were much more potent. How it will be in the approaching election, time will tell. Mr. Clay and his party have endeavored to make a high protective tariff a direct issue be fore the people in the north and west?and a few weeks will determine the matter. In our opinion, the controversy about the tariff' is one of the small est and most ridiculous quarrels I hat ever took place in the world. Which ever party succeeds, whig or locofoco, the tariff may be slightly modi fied, but never can be essentially changed. The New Reform Party.?This new party have now two newspapers in this city?the one nailed the " Peoples* Rights," the other the " Na tional Reformer." They are a sort of practical Kourierites, on the piinciples of Greeley and Unsbane, and have been agitating in every ward during the last few months. It,is calculated that they will take a couple of thousand votes at the ensuing election. Their principles are the most radical of the radicul. They go against all owner ship of lands, houses, or any kind of real estate. Their first movement is to divide all the public lands among the poor who can't pay for them. They are, also, in favor of abolishing, forever, the right of the Van Rensselaer family to their property iu the Helderberg region. What next 1 The Mormons ?The Mormons in this neighbor hood had a conference here last week, which con linued forseveral days. Amongother curiousniat ters settled upon, the apostles have declared them selves in favor of Polk and Dallas. Have they had a correspondence wiih Polk on the subject of their grievances'! Very likely. The Cprrency?A Hint to the Pttblic.?Now is the time to look sharply at those bank notes which one receives as money for his labor or pro duce. When business is looking up, and cunfi dence rising, the bubble financiers are always ready to palm their trash as money upon the com munity. In a short time all sorts of bank, issues will flood the country. Look sharp. Political Movement*. The Whig State Convention to be held at Syra. cuse to nominate Governor, Lieutenant Governor?

We have, therefore, no news by this arrival. Fall Fashion.?We have just been shown a copy of Mr. Oliver's plate of fashions for the en suing season, and must say that it is the most splen did alFair of the kind that we havo ever seen. En graved on copper by the first artists in London, and most beautifully colored, it presents a very striking contrast to the lithographic fashion printB usually published. It must have a great run, if, indeed, the plate will lurnish prints enough for the demand, as it is, in fact, " the plate" of the season. Although received by the Hibernia steamer, yet the explanation sheet having to be printed here will delay its delivery until Wednesday morning, when purchasers are advised to make early appli cation to the agent, Mr. A.

All friendly to the cause are invited to be present, as well as those who wish for information on this all important subject Epl??op*| Con v?ii tlon tn PtOUMl?lplU??Fate 0* tbe Klfltt Rev. Blihop Ondeidon*. We have already given a synopsis of the proceed ings of this important body, from which it will be seen that the Convention hat accepted the reaif" nation of Bishop Onderdonk and adjourned imm dit. It ap|x*ara, however, that the regularGeneral Convention will meet in a lew weekr, lor the pur pose of taking some new steps in relation to this important matter,?of confirming or rejecting the resignation of tfiahop Onderdonk, whose character and reputation are involved, as well as the well being of the Kpiscopal Church in Pennsylvania and the whole United States. According to our last accounts! rom Philadelphia, the most intense excitement has prevailed in the social and religious world in relation to the position I of Bishop Onderdonk and that of the body of Chrie j tians to which he belongs. This excitement, suffi | ciently strong in itself, has been not a little in creased by the foolish, intolerant, and unprece dented conduct of a Dr. Tyng, who, in this free land?in this enlightened age of the world?in this age, when the precepts, the doctines and practice of Christianity are as well understood by the laity as the clergy, and perhaps better?attempted to shroud their deeds in darkness, to conceal from the public eye and the public press w hat they were about to do in matters of the utmost moment to the cause of morality, religion, and'piety. Fiom the divisions in the Convention, it would seem that sue portion of that body was in favor of a lull and open investigation of the charges brought against Bishop Onderdonk, and of thereby deing justice to (he individual, if he were wropgfully accused and maligned, and of taking care of the general interests of religion involved in the issue. It appears that this section of the Convention were principally represented by ihe Honorable Messrs lngersoll and Binney and others; but it would ap pear that another and a larger portion of the as sembly were for removing Bishop Onderdonk with out trial, without inquiry or examination into the truth or falsity of the charges against him, and in accordance with this policy, have accepted his re signation. But according to the canons of the Church in Philadelphia, it is requisite that the re signation of a Bishop should be ratified by a ma jority of clerical and lay deputies in General Con vention, after its acceptance by a two-third vote in a previous local one. It is possible then, that in the course of the few weeks which will expire be fore the assembly of the General Convention, that public opinion will so act upon that body, that cor rect principles of morality will have such an effect as to compel them to do justice to Bishop Onder donk by an examination ot the charges against him ; by disgracing him if they are true, and by vindicating and defending him if they are fulse. To show the intense interest which prevail in Philadelphia on this subject, we annex the follow ing extract from the Philadelphia Gazette : Kriscovii. Convent low.?The letter of Bishop Onderdonk, which wax read coon after the open ing of the morning session, placed lully before the Eublic the grounds on which his resignation had Ben based. It stated that 011 his first coming into the di ocese, he was afflicted, while on a visit to the western part of the State, with violent pains in tho side and in the stomach, which lelt him, at times, incapable of physical exertion, and sometimes almost suspended animution? that no physician being accessible, he was forced to re sort to burnt brandy, as a tonic?that for a number of years he found it necessary, from the increasing debility ol his frame, and the distressing exigencies ot his dis ease, to rely frequently, and sometimes statedly, especial ly when in the country upon the same course of stimu lants. lie declared that lor years he had meditated resig nation, and that tie had gradually been reconciling him self, and preparing his circumstances for the step, when the Convention, of Mav last, met. It was then that a blow was struck at him, as he considered it, cruel, secret, unwarned, by the hands of the reverend gentlo men who composed the clergy of the diocese Meeting secretly without notice to him, they had collected and canvassed a number of charges affecting his moral stand ing and his personal dignity, and hud at lest, without giving him an opportunity 'to be heard, attached their names to an address, which though directt-d to him alone, and consequently of a private charocter, placed him in a position Irom which it was impossible to extricate himself. He found that they had virtually condemned him before hand, without a hearing; and in the desperation of the moment, ho determiner! to resign, nnd to call a special convention, with theiidvice of the standing committee. He concluded by denying the allegations ot indiacrotions of manner which had been made, stating, however, that frequently, hit nenoui syshtn hud hren so entirely unstrung at to leave him in a ttate of uncnntcioumett. On the con clusion of the reading of the letter, a lay delegate, Mr. L. R. Ashhurst, moved that the Dishop'sJ resignation be accepted. It was then that the difference of opinion in the Convention became manifest. Two courses, alone, stood open. The first was, to refuse to accept, and either to take measures for presentment and trial, or to let the matter rest forever The second was. to accept the resignation, and thus pnvent, on the one side, the necessity ol a protracted examination, and remove, on the other, the possibility of further offence. The first proposition was supported by the two extremes, ?by those who considered that a public trial was ne cessary, and by those who thought thit the Bishop was 110 more to lie censured than if he was consumptive or rheumatic. Tbe last course was adopted by the great majority of the Convention, as the following repoit will show. It waq supported with remaikahle ability and eloquence hy the Hev. Dr. Tyng, who, in a speech of great solemnity and feeling, pressed the step as necessary to secure the pcace and quiet of the Church. It was op posed by Mr Binney, Mr. J. It lngersoll, and Mr. J. 8. Smith, with mncb power, on the around that it was un just to the bishop, as being, in fact, a tacit condemnation, and unjust to the churcn, as affording an example of question dodging, which would be most fatal. It is impossible for us to describe the grand and solemn beauty of the scene which the evening unlolded. In the chnir, in the strong gla?c of the gaslights, which, around the chancel alone, were lighted, sat the venerable president, his gray hair, and his black robes standing out in strong relief by the side of the altar. In front of him were spread the clerical and lay deputies, consisting of nearly three hundred men, darkening gradually in the gloom which hung over the lowor end of tho church, till the last files were hid in darkness. It was then, when the strong lights nnd shadows which were thus thrown out, were exhibiting in full relief, in the first ranks, the anxions and sad counteninces of the reverend and vene rable gentlemen who sat in front, and were blending to gether, at the other end ot the nitle, forms and shapes in such confusion, that nothing could be discerned except the eager and bent form, ortho lifted hand, as the listener strove to draw in the full meaning of the scene before him,?that a letter ol the bishop's was hurried in, with drawing the re?ignation. Tho Convention, then just about to tako the final vote, was at once thrown back, but the chairman, almost immediately recovering himself, decided that the withdrawal was inope rative, nnd that the question was still on accepting the resignation. An appeal was taken by Mr. Smith, and supported with much force by Mr. Binney, but the chair was sustained by a large majority, the bishop's resigna tion was accepted, and after singing a hymn, the Conven tion adjourned <iine tlie There have been few bodies which have ever met in Pennsylvania wh<re more distin guished men were brought together; and none where more decorum existed, and where more eloquence, In its purest and must exalted sense was displayed What, then.^will be the effect of the meamtre adopted 7 It will be nece?sary, according to the canons of the Epis copal church, that a bishop's r?signation, after lieing ac cepted by a majority of two thirds of the clerical and lay d puties of his own Convention, should he ratified by a majority of both orders of the (General f 'envention The fJeneral Convention meets In a few tveek?, and should it ratify the resignation according to tho canon, the episco pate-but not till then will tie vacant. It will devolve, undor such circumstances, upon the annual Convention of Pennsylvania to meet in May next, to fill the vacancy. Personal Movement!. Lieut.

Dcmoc&auc Mkbtiiw im Wttwumm Claiinxy. ?There was quite a gathering of democratic spirits on Saturday afternoon, at Marble Hall, East Ches ter, near the termination of the Harlem Railroad, to Witness the erection of a magnificent hickory pole, measuring one hwired and sixty feet in height. It having beea announced that Junt a R. Whiting, Esq , James T. Brady, Esq., and jovial i Jem Thompson would address the assemblage, a number were present from the city intermingled with the hard fisted yeomanry. At about one o'clock the " cry of here she comes" was beard throngh the crowd, and casting our eyes over a rolling eminence on the main road, we perceived aline of sixty-eight pair of beautiful athletic oxen, whose yokes were decorated with an American, j "Polk and Dallas" flag, and in the distance at the rear of the line was the " Young Hickory" of im mense dimensions. This son of the forest was re ceived with the enthusiastic cheers of the yeomanry, and it was soon erected to its station with the stars and stripes at its head, and accompanied by the choicest national airs from Dodsworth's band, and the deafening peal of artillery. The meeting was then addressed by F. T. Mar bury, Esq , who was followed by James T. Brady, Esq. These gentlemen dwelt with much eloquence upon the various politicalquestions before the coun try, and the latter presented an able argument against the policy and justice of the manufacturer's tariff, so loudly urged by the whigs as the only source of wealth and prosperity of the nation. They were followed by James It. Whiting, Esq., whose peculiar position, and prospect of nomina tion for Congress by the democrats and concurrence by the natives, caused considerable interest to his remarks. He spoke of the magnificent pole erect ed as the emblem of the democratic party in the present contest, and as a memento of the past, when democratic principles had been' the guiding star to the welfare of the nation and the prosperity and happiness of the whole people. He then aliuded to the several questions of national policy that formed the issue between the two partieH at the approach ing contest, and took up the subject of the tariff with a giant's hand. He reviewed the past evils of over importations, forming an excess of revenue that led to speculation, fraud and bankruptcy, and exposed the fallacy of the whig doctrine that as sumed the principle that high protection to manu factures produced equal benefits to all other inter ests of the country. He argued that a broad, statesmanlike, national view should be taken on this subject?that no one portion of the Union should receive the benefit of legislation to the injury of the other?that if any benefit was to be derived to any particular portion under a moderate tariff' for revenue, well nnd good ; but he opposed, em phatically, special legislation for the east, the west, the north, or south. He dwelt with much elo quence upon the evils arising from excessive man (neturea in any country ; he pointed out the wan, downcast expression of children and infants en gaged in the manufactories of the east, as con trasted with the ruddy, wholesome faces of those occupied in agricultural or other pursuits; and ex tended his remarks to the debased and wretched objects of humanity found in manufacturing Eng land and Ireland. He said that the principle of tree trade was not to be advocated until other governments were reciprocal in their view.", and that whenever they arrived at such conclusion, free trade would cany with it the germ of liberty that would transplant it self in every European soil. He said that the question before the people was. whether Federal or Whig principles should predominate at the en suing election, and that those principles were bo well distinguished that a review from him was not necessary. In allusion to the re-annexation of Texas, he said, ifhe had been consulted before Mr. Van Buren had replied to the letter addressed him, he should have advised him to have advocated the annexation, and he now hoped that if she was an nexed, that this government would have indepen dence and patriotism enough to lend her money or credit sufficient to enable her to compel Mexico to acknowledge that independence that they now so pertinaciously deny. (Loud cheers followed this new idea.) And. says he, if thfc manufacturers are so anxious and earnest to have their interests subserved, Texas will readily assent to ?ake the surplus of their manufactures at full prices, as an equivalent to satisfy their objections. He spoke of the occupation of Oregon, as called for by every principle of Americanism, and that opposition to it could emanate from none except enemies to the interests and honor of the nation. In allusion to the advocacy of Clav bv the whigs, he asked who was to be benefitted by a high tariff", except princely manufacturers. (Jo, sayi? he, to Lowell, and how many able bodied men do you find en gaged in manufactures?few, very few?not one in a Hundred?they are girls and children, who re ceive their eighteen pence a day, and whose con stitutions are destroyed, and their minds benumbed by theirjdaily labor to support their employers. He closed with an eloquent appeal to the patriotism of the assemblage in favor of the doctrines of the de mocratic party, in which he contended that a re liance upon manufactures for the happiness and prosperity of this great agricultural nation, was de pending upon a broken reed, which weuld termi> nate as a blight upon our institutions. With a tri bute to the character, talents, and patriotism of James K. Polk and George M. Dallas, he closed wirh the enthusiastic cheers of the audience. City Intelligence. Lower Police Office.?Uulick the Militia Fins Collector.?This man is now mnst busily engaged in the performance of his odious calling, ond attempted to levy upon some oil cloth in the s'.oro of Albert Higgins, 43-2 Pearl street, on Saturday, in payment for militia dues.

The above is one of a number of anonymous communi cations I have received from the gambling fraternity, since I deserted their ranks, and commenced exposing the systematic villanies by which they have successfully plundered every community where they could get a foot hold. Some ot these missives implore me to stop, and not to ruin a business by which *o many are now gaining a livelihood ; other* threaten peraonal chastisement, and even broadly hint at assassination; and within a lew days some of the desperadoes, whose business I have great! y affected, have openly manifested a disposition to attack me publicly in the streets. To all thia, I have but a few words to say. As a gambler, I exerted a pernicious influence in society?but having seen tbe error ol my ways, and deeply repented, I am now making the only restitution In my power?that of endeavoring to exter minate the gambling race, by exposing the tricks ol their profession, by which alone they live; and I shall not cease my exposures, should God spare my life, until I induce the legislature of each State to enact laws suHi cient for the entire suppression of the vice of gambling. Such being my purpose. I shall persevere despite every annovance the " honorable gentlemen" may see proper to inflict. J. H. GREEN. Tapers friendly to the suppression of gambling, will please copy the above. J. H. G. Green gives another lecture to-night, and intends to unfold further mysteries?to describe some of the hells of the metropolis?to give anecdotes of the fraternity?state of society?morals, &c. It will be worth hearing by all sinners. Theatrical Movements.?A very amusing little bit of excitement has been created in the theatrical world during last week by the appearance of the new stare at the Park. Their standing and talent, of which so much had been said in eulogy since their engagemet here, and the general doubt as to the justice of their high pretensions, lent a singu larity to the circumstance of their appearance which has drawn a great many to witness their performances. Every one acknowledges the respectability ol the new stars, but the principal question which has been asked and which is now in the course of determination by the audience is, "how little talent is required to constitute a star, and how slight a quantity of theatrical reputation of any kind doea it take to get up an excitement." The singular and remarkable likeness between Mr Anderson and Mr. Macready which is said to exist, as will be seen from the letter of our intejli gent and sagacious European correspondent, in this day's paper?this resemblance in manner as well as person has been the means of bringing back to the Park some of the excitement, the patronage, the crowds of former and more palmy days. This popularity, as might beexpected, affects the other theatres; the Bowery and Chatham accord ly are, since Anderson's engagement at the Park, comparatively deserted by the play going public, fired with anxiety to see for themselves and judge of how far Mr. Anderson resembles Mr. Macready, and of the difficulty of ascertaining whether it is, or is not, Macready himselt. Well, we are very glad of this, or of anything that is calculated to restore the fallen fortunes of the Park; and this success will not be hailed by us alone, but by a very large portion of the theatre going people of this city. Theatricals, <fec. Macready commences an engagement to-night at the Arch Street Theatre, Burton manager.

Mad'lle Borghese has returned to town, refreshed and invigorated by the waters of Saratoga and the sea air of Newport, looking more beautiful than|ever. Sigr. Valtellini has recovered his temper through his recent so journ at Bloomingdale, and will present the sweets of such ever before the public. Signora Valtellini, we hope,will come out in her proper place. Being an artiste of considerable promise, we are assured she will ever command an adequate welcome. Recently we have heard nothing of OleBull, but we presume he is at Newport, breathing the sea air, and completing his new pieces. Mr Jones has just completed an original opera, of which good judges, who have heard it, speak in the highest terms, arid say it will command great popularity. The plot is taken from the Arabian Ni?ht's entertainments, and the music abounds with the most beautiful melodies, of ?n Eastern i-tyle. Mad. Otto is likely to be brought out in it. The piece is now in rehearsal at the Park, and those who have witnessed the same, speak in the greatest ecstaciea of the production.

Hamilton House, Sept. 7,1W4. Drotnio Theatrical*?Macready and Anderson? Their perfect Identity?Singular Coincidence*. I am bow at Hamiltou How, under the care of Reed, for the rest of the sotffon, and without fur ther praface, I proceed:?The Duke of Wellington has in hia collection a painting, "Christ in the Garden," which he purchased at a considerable price, as a copy of very superior excellence of the celebrated painting of that subject. Soon after wards, the British Government bought the original at the enormous price ot six thousand pounds ster ling, for the National Gallery. When these two works of art, the reputed original and the reputed copy, came thus in juxta position before the tribu nal of artistic criticism, considerable doubts were raised whether after all the Duke of Wellington's was not the original and the government picture the copy. 80 closely is it possible for two differ ent productions of art to resemble each other. There is a case now before the American public far more wonderful than this; a case of artistic re semblance of an infinitely more astonishing kind Those who never had the pleasure of seeing Mr. Macready's performance of any of his celebrated parts, may now have that gratification by visiting the Park Theatre. Let us not be told that Mr. Macready is not in New York; that he is an nounced on the contrary at Philadelphia. It is no such thing. He is at the Park, where he has as sumed the name oi Anderson. We saw him with our bodily' eyes there, in visible form and sub Htance. So we said and so we believed, until after leaving the house we actually saw Mr. Macready, not on the stage, but in his proper person, at a time and place incompatible with the appearance on the Park boards which we had just witnessed. It was net then, it seems,Mr. Macready' Prodigi ous !? Were iuch thing* here a* we do speak about 1 Or have we eaten of the iniane toot, That takes the reason prisoner 1 Mr. Anderson has robbed Mr. Macready of his personal identity. It is not an imitation of style. It is the actual transfusion of the elements of indi viduality oi one man into another. Philosophers havu startled common minds by promulging the hypothesis of the transmigration of souls. Mr. Anderson has afforded a practical demonstration oi a process infinitely more incredible, lor lie has ac tually effected the transmigration oi bodies. We saw Mr. Anderson several years ago, when he was brought from the provinces to the London boards by Macready. Mr. Anderson was then Mr. Anderson, lie had his own attributes. It was possible, when necessary, to call a witness to a jury box to establish bis identity. He had, like all men, his distinguishing traits. His limbs moved, his eye rolled^ his head was held on his shoulders, his gesticulations, gait, voice, and play ot counte nance, were governed by the dictates of his own will, and the promptings ot his own mind. Mais nout avow changi tout cela. The nature et Mr. Anderson is now subdued to the very qualities of his lord. His body is governed by Macready's spirit. All the elements oi' Macready s individuali ty have passed into the person oi Mr Anderson. The motion of the limbs, the play oi the muscles, every characteristic gesticulation, the gait, the dragging after him of the feet, scraping the stage slowly with the toes, the see saw of the shoulders, the turning of the eyes one way and the head ano ther, the modulation and pitch of the voice? the arrangement, length, and color of the hair, giving a peculiar character to the head, the hanging of the arms, the management ol the hands and fingers, to say nothing oi those things which appertain to the province of the dress er and the wardrobe, none of which are neglected, ?are so identical with his great original, thac we protest seriously and in good faith that tor several minutes alter the first entrance ot the actor we could not convince ourselves that it was not Ma cready whose bodily presence we beheld. We had recourse to the bill, which assured us, contrary to the evidence of our senses, that it really was Mr. Anderson and not Mr. Macready. It has been said that any admirer of Mr. Macready, provided he were blindfolded, might witness any performance of Mr. Anderson, without discovering that it was not Mr. Macready. We maintain that the remo val of the bandage from the eyes would only in crease such assurance by summoning the evidence of the eyes to corroborate that of the ears. Th> London critics call Mr. Anderson Macready's shadow. This implies similitude of outline ouiy, and feebly expresses the marvellous identity which this consummate mime has realized. His per formances are stereotypes of those of Macready. His presence on the boards excites the same feeling of awe as a preternatural apparition. He is Mac roaftu'e Wraith The performances of thiB actor follow those of Macready with a closeness of resemblance exteid ing to the minutest conceivable details, so painfully accurate that it is impossible for any one familiar with the one to estimate fairly the pretensions of of the other. "When we visit the theatre, the aston ishment produced at the accuracy of tne copy ef fectually excludes all consideration of the absolute merits of the performance. We shall not attempt to criticise^thts actor, because he puts it out of our power to do so. He renders it impossible for us to think of himself at all by never permitting us for one momest to foigst his master and patron. An idea has occurred to us, a hint of which we would fain "whisper in the lug" of our excellent friend Simpson, whose treasury would be thereby replen ished far more effectually than by the brilliant con stellation which he has attracted trom the eastern skies. Let him get upShakspeare's Comedy of Er rors, "and iuduce MacreadyandAnderson to person ate, the one Antipholus of Ephesus, and the other Antipholusof Syracuse. He will easily find two low comedians, who, by the aid of dresses, paint,wigs, and a little drilling, may present a sufficiently lu dicrous resemblance for the two Dromios. Our life upon it, he will have such a run of houses as have not been witnessed at the Park since the palmy days of that temple ot the legitimate drama, when Price, in its directoral chair, added,his acute ntss and tact to the managerial skill of our present respected lessee. Only conceive such a perform ance. Imagine the audience as effectually de ceived as Adriana herself, and finding itreahy im possible to guess which is which of the duplicate Antipholi. Imagine the roars of laughter which the following dialogue would prodace :? Duke?8taml a pat t?I know not which is which. Jidriana?Which of you two did dine with me to-day? JirUipholxu of Syracuse?I, gentle Mistress. Jidriana? And aro you not my husband? AntipKolni of .EpAtsus?No, I say nay to that, StC. Although in friendly regard to the Park treasury we recommend this, we frankly acknowledge that we should not ourselves venture to attend the per formance. There are paroxysms of laughter which are not unattended with danger to life, and if the audience, either wholly or partially, should expire under the exhibition, it is a question tor grave con sideration whether a verdict of wilful murder would not be brought in against Macready and Anderson as principals, and against Simpson as ac cessory before the fact.

A Short Sketch of Matter* about Rochttttr, prinri - pally Political. Dear Bennetts As I live it the western part oi this State, and am a constant reader of your paper, peihapa you will have no objection to my giving you a little ac count of matters and things out this way We have all sorts of characters here ; all sorts of re ligions, and all sorts of politics?the latter forms the principal topic of conversation. First the Whigs will have a meeting, and thf n the Loc< focos. Iu this part of the country the whigs are in the ascend ency. The newB has just come in of the Locofoco nominations Mr. Gardiner, the candidate for Lieut. Governer, is from this place ; he is popular with the ruffle shirts, but with the bone and sinew he is very unpopular. The Locos here seem to de pend upon the eastern part of the State to elect their ticket, as this part ot the State will go for Fil more by a large majority. The Whigs, as usual, are making fools of themselves, and the Locos get drunk and fight. The Bimey men keep still; they are waiting to hear what Cussius M. Clay will cay at the whig meeting in October. You must send a good reporter out then, as it will require a smart nmn to Keep account oi the doings on that day. 1 shall from time to time, give you an account of things this way. Yours, &c., M. J. New Haven. [Correspondence of the Herald ] New Haven, Sept. 6th, 1844. Military Mattert in New Haven?John Smith and the 8altatory J.rt?A True and Authentic Ac count of a Whig Matt Convention, of tluDoingt and fiayingt thereat. Dear Bennett s? After several years of absence, I have again re turned to this terrestial paradise, where I hope to spend the remainder of my days with that serenity of mind which is the reward of virtue. I have been astonished at the improvements and alterations that have been made in the appearance of the city during my absence. A _ Monday last was training day thioughout tlie State. Accordingly several military companies appeared on parade, " armed and equipped accord ing," to the fancy oi the individual members. Capt. Duntze's company of Light Infantry far ex ceeded the others in the completeness oi their equipments, and the admirable precision of their movements. At least one-fourth of his men were provided with knapsacks, and as many as half of their muskets had bayonets. They marched in double file, counter-marched, and formed platoons, without making more than half a dozen mistakes, and performed several other equally intricate mi nnmvres in a most masterly manner, sufficiently bo to have put regular soldiers to the blush. Captain Duntze nas already passed through all the grades of military rank, from Corporal to General, and re tired with the honors of war, but finding his mili tary ardor unnbated in his retiracy, he accepted the command of this company, and their present superiority is to be attributed solely to his skill, spirit, and perseverance. The Greys have hereto fore been considered by judges, to be second to none in the Union, but it is now the general re mark that Capt. Tolle?, of that corps, will have to look to his laurels. It is not true that John Smith is dead. He ia alive and kicking, or dancing, which is nearly the same thing. He has been very quietly engaged in teaching a large class of small girl* and boys, the saltatory art, in this city. On Tuesday night he save a public exhibition of his school at th- new Exchange Saloon. As most of the spectators were admitted free of expense, it was largely and fash ionably attended. The performance of the scho lars, as well as the style in which the affair was managed, were both highly creditable to John. It will be gratifying to his friends to know that he is at present in the enjoyment of perfect health. There was a whig mass convention here yester day. No dependence can be placed upon the statements of either ot the political papers as to the numbers present. My interest in political mat ters is so small that I did not take the pains to count those in the procession, but there were seve ral who did, and they generally agree that the number was about two thousand. I took my station near the corner of the Green to have a good view of the show. Three or four score of boys, with handkerchiefs fattened to sticks,in the fashion of banners, composed a part of the procession. On surveying them one could not help thinking that the handkerchiefs had better have been ap plied to their legitimate use. There were also three live coons carried in the procession, who occasionally elevated theirnoseswith an air o/inef fable contempt. In fact, they were the most sensible looking animals in the concern, and were apparent ly ashamed at the part they were compelled to bear in the pageant. The mighty mass was addressed by Messrs. Berrien, White and Coombs. There was nothing remark able about the speeches of these gentlemen, except the first, which was of unconsci onnble length Some appeared to be much interest ed, butmore seemed to Oe fat'gued. W. E. H , the principal editor of the Daily Herald, diverted him self, during a portion of the time, by teasing a coon which was chained near the speaker on the stand, in such a manner as to render him unable to resent the liberty. Gassy also occasionally participated in the humane amusement. But, oh ! Bennett, the bright blnze ot beauty that beamed from the seats prepared for the ladies on the east side of the State House, where they sat for the space of five hours, exposed to the scorching rays of the sun, was a sufficient compensation for all the dullness of the speakers The seats were built in the form of stairs, the highest being about fifteen feet from the ground, and on these, by previous arrangement probably, were placed those ladies who had the prettiest an kles, et cetera. Where all were beautiful, it mny be deemed invidious to particularize, but I must be permitted to say that in the brilliant constellation that graced the occasion, Miss Elizabeth C., and Miss Elizabeth s., shone the brightest and most conspicuous stars. Ever yours, Yallkr, Flower. Getting Damp?A fellow who was floating down the Mississippi ok a mattrase, halt under water, hailed a steamboat that was parsing with, " Hallo, Captain, got any room in that shell o'journ? I've got the fever and ague just enough to shake my toe nails oft. I've been out here these three days, and the doctor told me it might endanger my health if I got damp ! I'm not olarmed myself, but I must follow the doctor'^ orders or my wife wilt raise a tremendous,fuss when I land !" This argument prevailed with the humane captain, and he was taken aboard to dry. Attempted Revolt ?There was a regular bat tle in Philadelphia, on Wednesday afternoon, on board the brig Caraccas, Capt. Lewis, as the wri pro ceeding down the river on her voyage to Lngnayra, be tween the sailors and officers, several of the former being intoxicated. The fight lasted for some time, but the sailors were finally mastered, after which they proceeded to their duty. Weather in Canada.?The weather at Quebec continues as unfavorable as ever. A warm tem perature succeeded the late northeasterly wind, and with the continued moisture, some early cut wheat which was not in a condition to be housed, has sprouted more than an inch in length, and even taken root where it touched the ground. Great quantities of hay which conld not be made on account of the weather are still out and rendered nearly worthless.
