NEW YORK HERALD. Slew York, Monday, September 16. Stenui Ship HrtUnnla. Thia picket is now du". at Boston with thirteen days later intelligence from Euro|>e. We may, therelore, hourly look for hor news. The Presidential Elec tion?Imminent Dan ger of a Defeat to Iklr.Clay and tlieWhlg*. The extraordinary result wt the receut election iq Maine, is beginning to produce a strange feel lug of despondency in the whig ranks, and an u jual degree of hope; in the locofoco camp. Before ttiis election it was confidently piedi-ted by the whig organs in Massachusetts, particularly the Boiton Ailat, which is generally tolerably accu rate in ita prognosticsions, that the whigs would carry the State ot Maine by an overwhelming ma jority, and the opinion was generally concede J in by the party throughout the whole country. It is true the locofocos put forward a similar boast ttjat they would carry the State, and the result has t?hown that ihe calculations of the whig leaders and the whig organs were most deceptive, and that the greatest dependence ought to have been placed 011 the locofocos predictions. The iocofoco majority in M tine, indeed, exceeds nil anticipations. Aud no less astounding and un expected is the extraordinary vote which the aboli tionists have polled. As indicating the sentiments of the whig party, we give the follow ng extracts? the one from a Maine paper?the Whig Courier of Bangor, and the other from the Courier & En quirtr of this city, in which an attempt is made to account for the npa'hy in the whig ranks and the singular success which begins to attend the loco focus [From the Bangor Whig and Courier. 1 The remit of the election in this State ?o far a* wehavo return* ?cem? to be *omewhat deci?ive in favor of the loco party. A majority of the ncoplit of Maine have shown a willingness to sustain the loco party even with the imrof diate annexation of Texan, the deatruction of th? Protec tive policy and the narrow view* of discouraging the ma nufacturing interest* of Maine The position of Maine i? thm defiled, and if (he view* of her citizen* should pre vail In the nation not one vear would pass before Texas would he annexed?the Tariff for protection destroyed and c inital forbidden to seek investment in manufactnr ing A shout of n joicing would be heard in all the mar kets of Kurope, to be followed hy a wail of woe rising from the bottom of the hearts of the laboring men in the United States. Since the result in Maine can afford nothing of satisfac tion and joy to the whig* of other States it may give them a word ot warning. Depend not alone upon the excellence of your principles, but in order to insure the success of your principles engage at once in a thorough and efficient organization in every tewn Conventions may be nu merously |attendod,but personal effort must not be neglect ed. It may be for the intere-t of a man to support the measures of the whigs, but it is important he he made to see it, anl to understand the practical difference between the true American policy advocated by the whig* and the British policy advocated by the locos Maine nas given the note of warning. Th" whigs here see where th y might have improved. They fay to their brother whigs In other States, organize, put forth personal exertions, amuse the business men, interest the mechanic*, attend ?o laboring men and make the conteat a personal matter In which all shall be interested and all mingle hand to hand and heart to heart. [Krom the Courier and Enquirer 1 It is characteristic of the locofoeo party alway* to do about twice bs much as they make public. Their ma** meetings aud great public demonstration* In thi* State, are far behind those of the Whig* ?, but we fear their *c rret, silent, subterranean operations, are much greater.? This mint be remedied and that right *peedily. Mass Conventions have a most excellent ti ilitv. and should not b i n?glocted But they cannot do ul the work ot a poli tical c imnaign. They arc usually Held in the larger towns, and in the immediate vicinity of the great public thoroughfare*. Here their influ?nco in arousing public attention is most decided and s f ? i ?ry. But they should be oaretitlly followed up witi. . rlion* of a different character. There are thousand ? ihe pf-ople whom they do not reach The farmers n > live away from large vill C>*?, who cannot attend ? ese meeting", are consr. ? pxently left to our opi>onent?, who go amond them, retail, in a unlet an 1 unnoticed way, their misrepresentation* ot Whif? measures and their foul *land?>rs upon Whigcnndi da'fs ami confidently count upon the effect Again*t such effort* as these we fear no adequate antidote has h^en nrovided 'by the Whigs. If it he so. it 1* a matter which thouM receive immediate and close attention. We believe these views to be correct. Aud if they are so, the success of Mr. Clay stands in a very precarious position, unless the whigs through out the country that have been hanging hack, come up to the polls as they did in 18-10. We have al ways believed?from ihe most indisputable data, the election returns?that the opposition party, or the whigs.have always retained a very considerable major ty of the popular masses of this country in | their ranks, but that from their pursuits?their ha- j bits?;tnd a variety of other circumstances, it has been very seldom that they come forth to the polls tn maHt, aud that to this lukewarmm ss may be ascribed the almost uniforn. succefs of the demo cracy, with a few exceptions, and the permanence of that regime in the government of the country. In 1^40, when Gen. Harrison came into the field, there wdssuch an intense excitement throughout the country in relation to public aff.tire, and the mea sures of the previous administration, together with the commercial revulsions which had ngitated the ! people to so great a degree, that both parties j came fully out at the polls, and on that occasion i the locofocos were completely demolished. Since j tlut time, however, it is clear from the results of 1 the St*te elections, that the wh gs have relapsed into their characteristic opathy, and accordingly ! we see the locofocos resuming their ascendnncy, 1 and restoring their regime. But now we aie on ! the threshold of another Presidential election, and the great question is, what prospect is there of the whigs coming out in support of Mr. Clay for the purpose of securing his return, in the present con dition of the country"? According to all appearances, as indicated by the recent elections, Mr. Clay's chances are diminish ing every day, and this disastrous state of things has been produced by the conduct, policy and tac- i tics of the principal leaders of hi.a own party in the ; Vorth?his newspaper organs, and the entire masses j of his politicnl supporters, who summon conven- j tions, get up mass meetings, organize clubs, and j do the general business of electioneering through- j out the non-slaveholding States. Let us, with a little more definiteness, indicate | the causes which are ut work that may result in j the entire prostration of Mr. Clay in the next elec" tion and the ultimate defeat of the Whigs We attri buUMhe chief of these causes to the utter ignorance of human nature, and the operation of hu- j man inotiveg, which characterize the whig leaders from top to bottom-from Mr. Webster down to the veriest loafer in the Knickerbocker club ?from ex Governor Seward down to Greeley, the Fourirrite philosopher. During the last three years, | owing to particular circumstances nnd the constant agitation of ihe slave question in Congress by the Hon. John Quincy Adams, Mr. Giddings, and others, the Abolitionists, as u third party?a mere abstraction, or which may be more properly de nominated a practical absurdity in the history of civiliz ition?have been gaining ground With singu Inr rapidity. In the tree States, at the Ustelection, tiiey numbered over sixty thousand men. The members of this purty are most generally abstract ed from the whig ranks. Immediately on the nomination of Mr. Clay, when the can vass commenced for the Presidency, we saw Mr. Webster of New England, and Mr. Seward and others in New Yor pimping into the field, making the Texas questi - the principal is sue in the North, and carrying it ?fore the masses as far and as intensity p hey could. At the very same moment, we fiu ;t Mr. Clay, who has an eye lo the interest* ' the whole country far beyond any of his supp< . re, w*s under the ne eeasity of explaining and modifying his first letter on that subject, so aa to meet the general sentiment of the south and west, and we may say th? general sentiment of the whole e.ountry, with th? exception of the abstrac tionists. Here ia the sourco 'A the difficulty that now prevails, and which may prostrate the whi? cause in the defeat of Mr Clay at the ensuing *|ertlOn. . ,-nL We loresaw the necessary result of this difficult, contradictory set of movements amongst the wings Hud in the recent election in Maine every man must now see it. In 1810, the abolition party amounted to about one or two hundred in Maine. In 1843.we find them polling nearly seven thousand veiee, and giving the Stale to the lo?ofo?os I Tha #dme cause*?the same suicidal policy of Me*"' Webster, Seward, Greeley, aud all those who have been calling this and that convention of the P*? pie together, and t?lling them in l<>"t ,w0 ^our " speeches that the Texas question was th? ?rm? isoue between Mr. Clay and his antagonist* wi operate in Connecticut?in New Jersey in enn Bylvania?and particularly in New \ork. something be done, and that speedily, to place I is matter in <1 different position thuu that which it oc cupies just now?unlrss the whtgs adopt some me thod of putting themselves right on the Texan ques tion so as to counteract the mischievous influence of thv contradictory movements ot Mr. Clay in the South, and Mr. Webster in the North, the loco tocos will carry the greater portion of the non slave holding Slates by overwhelming majorities, and the abolitionists will probably poll one hun dred and fifty thousand votes, thus laying the train for one ol the most extraordinary movements here after that ever took place, aud which may shake this confederacy to the very centre. The abolition party, under the mistaken policy of Mr. Adams, Mr Webster, Mr. Seward, and others, has been growing year after year, and who can tell hut it rnty grow after this transitory election is decided in favor ot the locofocos, to such an extent as to break asunder th? Union and destroy the fair fabric of republican government'! Mr.Clay.Hs a staU stiun?as a man who truly loves his country?as one who would do honor to the chiir of the Chiel Magis rate of this great nation, miiy be well entrusted with its destinies. And al though we can say uothing against Mr. Polk, yet he is comparatively an obscure and unknown man ? certainly diminutive as a statesman, when placed Bide by side with Mr. Clay. And the Whigs owe it to themselves, to their candidate, and to their cause, even if they should throw,away the House of Representatives at the next election, to make eve ry effort?every honorable eflort.to elect Mr. Clay, lor on that hangs, perhaps, the destinies ot the country for many yeais to come. The next important event in the history of this most exciting campaign, will be the elections in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, both of which take place on the second Tuesday of next month ? Their result may astonish the people still more than any which has preceded them. Jncrkask of Taxation?The Conduct of the New R-kform Party ?We perceive that Messrs. Harper & Co. ot the new reform party in the Cor poration, who made so manyipromises before the election, and have broken almost all of them ex cept that about the apple women in the Park and the tin cans around the fountain, have at last ven tured out with a reply to the statement of tacts which we presented a few days ngo in relation to city taxation. Messrs. Harper & Co. ore generally esteemed in private life, and are very modest, sen sible, sagacious, mora1, discreet men. But it is really astonishing how the possession of political power, or the agency in ihe appropriation and dis tribution of an immense amount of the public mo ney, confers impudence?the most unblushing im pudence on the most modest, the most quiet, and most unobtrusive of men. in the organ of the Corporation?supported and paid by them, and consequently sustained by mo ney taken from the pockets ot the people, we find the following extraordinary statement published under the sanction of the Mayor and Common Council: The Herald of yesterday contain* an V above *h<ch i* ??> great a pervemon ol the truth, that although the srM Herald make* great pretention* to cor rectness, in all >t* financial statement*, it cannot be *uf (??red to im** uncontradicted by u*. | We have a*cetrtoined from the official pajier* resented ; to the Board of 8upervi*orr, by the Comptroller, the . whole truth in relation to the increaae of taction and t.resent the following fact* for the con*lderation of the ; rnmmunitr ami *incerely hope that all our friend*. who are deiirou* of presenting the truth* to their reader* and | disahniing the public mind of the error* and fal*iti?? con- . tained in the Herald in th?* nutter. will ?*o no by u*ingthe following, which we vouch for the correctne** of: The amount which the Comptroller e*ti mate i as necesiary to be levied lor the ^ ^ m 4ft The amount Yevied for the ) ear 1943, wa* 1,747.618 AO | Exert* of levy in ?? ? $"7,680 88 The reason* lorthi* increase are a* fol lows ? - At the commencement of the pre ?"iit ypur, th?- former Common Council In crea*?-d the watch force and pay in umo.n.t ^ ^ euiial to, for the year.# #. ? ? ? in'sfi7 18 They also increased the lamp* ?

The latter law waa ao amended, lust May, ai to transfer 'he power to th? Board of Education, hii? utill the Common Council have no control over the ex penditure* f?r *choolt. We have this from their own statement, with their remarks. Here then we have an admission of an increase in the city taxation of $237,680 85. We believe we stated the increase to be rising 9300,000, but we now give the exact sum accord ing to their own statement. Before the election, this party declared in every sort of way, and with all possible solemnity, that they meant to reduce the expenses of the Corpo ration, and relieve the city from the oppressive burden of high taxation. The general calculation amongst them was that the taxes for the year 1844 could and would be reduced to the amount of 9200,000. With what asfoni?hment, then, has the people of ibis city, who pay the taxes, seen, instead ol a reduction of $200,000 an actual increase of two hundred and thirty seven thousand and odd dollars! And what excuse do these modern reformers offer for this extraordinary conduct?how do they attempt to palliate this out rageous faithlessnessto solemn and reiterated promi ses 1 The sti?!e excuse which every corrupt party that abused the public trust has made?a trumped-up story about the. "public schools"?"increase of the lampe"?and the "bad laws." Just the old excuse which the corrupt organs of parties have been in the habit of making for years hack, and for which thev have been hurled from power by an outraged and insulted people. But they fdmit the broad fact?their utter faiihlessne's?and have the impu dence themselves to place that document on re cord. But this is not all. This new party, from which we expected so much in the way of economy and reform?not only have falsified their promises in relation to reduction of luxation and other matters, ?not only have they over-shot the corruption of ihe old parties in relation to the expenditures of the pub lic moneys?they have added insult to injury, far surpassing all their predecessors in personality?in scurrility?in imbecility?and in the indecency of their public argans. Ilow is this very journal from which we have taken their acknowledgment of prodigal expenditure, attempting to cut discredit on their own statement ol facts hy vulgar abuse of the Herald?because it, a " notorious print," as they call it, publishes their faithlessness to the world, and rebukes ihem for it. Do these modest reformers really unngine timt the attention of the public will be directed from their errors and worth lesjness, by calling the Htrnld all manner of bsd n i?U'S?by pouring forth against a quantity of low ind vulg?r scurrility such as never disgraced even the columns of ths most unprincipled and |oorrupt organs of the old factions 1 Indeed, not satisfied with tins abuse of the Herald, the miserable organ ol Messrs. Harper Ac Co. has actually the effronte ry to say that the Catholics of this city have been the cause of their infidelity to their pro miaes! A moie ridiculous assertion was never put forward; but the truth is, that these re formers cannot fiud any depth of absurdity, any more than any depth of faithlessness, which they cannot fathom. What has the Herald or its editor to do with their conduct 1 If we were to compare private life with private life, from the day of our birth, with this Mr. Mayor Harper, or any of his associates, at least, we would have nothing to dread from the comparison. We dare them to point out any thing in our whole life and conduct which in point ef integrity or blatnelessness, ren ders us inferior to them. And we do say, that if Mr. Harper countenances, for a moment, this per sonal attack as an apology for the u'ter faithless ness of the new corporation, he is not the honora ble and sagacious man which we have taken him to be. The whole career of this new party since they came into office has been one scene of absurdity, lolly, and faithlessness to promise. What have they done? Instead of, like honest and just men, redeeming their pledgep, they have prated about libery, that blasphemed and intuited theme of all political vagabonds and imposters?they have sum moned meagre conventions at remote places, and talked loudly about a repeal of the naturalization laws, and the despotism of the Pope of Rome.? Probably we shall yet hear more of theirdoings.? It is not at all unlikely that defalcations, extrava gance and corruption are yet to be revealed under their administration, such as will be in keeping with the extent of their eflorts to diminish the enormous taxation under which this city labors.? Really, after all, we believe, we must fall back even on the Whigs. We can't get first rate hon esty anywhere, but surely we cau get any where else something that approaches more to it than what exists in the present corporation. If we can't get first rate beef, we must take second rate or third rate. But we do think it is fully time to stop eating carrion. Mormon Lecture on the Restitution of all Things. Yesterday there was a display of Mormon talent on tbis subject at the National Hall, Canal street, by elder C. J. Adama. The service was commenced by Elder W. Smith, the only surviving brother of the Mormon prophet, offering up prayer; this was succeeded by Mr. T. A. Lyne reading the 26ih chapter of the Acta of the Apostles, in a somewhat uovel style. Elder Adams then proceeded to ad dress those assembled, taking for his text verses 20 and 21 of Acta III., 1 Cor. v. 21, and the Revela tions of John, c. 21, v. 4 & 5 The gentleman then proceeded to treat on the immortality of the soul, the fall of man, the curse of the earth, the plnii of redemption, the reign of peace over all the earth, &c. &c. See., in which he broached some truly original ideas, and contended that the millennium was to exist on this earth, and that hell, fire and brimstone, wss only to frighten the old women of the present day to follow the steps of a hireling and hypocritical priesthood, who were ten times worse than the Pharisees of old, who taught doctrines they knew were repugnant to truth for their own sordid interest and aggrandizement; and thut it wab not until the people opened their eyes to this fact, could the reign of the Lord commence. The gen tleman, in the course of his argument, proceeded to show that man only consisted of body and soul, or spirit, not, as general.y thought, body, soul, and spirit; and went to show the materiality of body, and the eternity of spirit, while the former mingled with the. dust Irom whence it camp, and the latter returned to him who gave it; and future punish ment was all moonshine, and that all spirits would enjoy eternal happiness sooner or later, and that new heavens and new eart1! would be the final in heritance of the saints. The gentleman then pro ceeded to say that he had been lor a long time try ing to get a place to preach in this city without success, and could onl) get the present for that evening, and hoped that all had got the worth of their money, which was charged to cover expenses; but Imped that in a short time he would be able to Ret other accommodations, and give lectures on the doctrines of the Mormons, and show that they were the only true religionists. The gentleman having concluded his address, proceeded in company with Elder Smith to con firm two females by the laying on of hands, to what they termed the true church. The parties in question appeared to he about 18 and 20 yep.ra of age, and of an interesting appearance. Afterwards, elder Smith offered up prayer, and the assemblage was dismissed. There were not more than from 50 to 70 persons present during the services, so that the price oi ad mission, 12^ cents, would not cover the expense of rent of room, printing, &c. There might have been a large audience if the admission had been free. Certaiuly, the novelty of the subject and de livery would have commanded it.

Hamilton House, Sept. 12th, 1844 The relish for musical performances in America advances apace. When thetaate is awakened,when the instinct has once been aroused, nothing is more rapid than the growth, nothing more insatiable than the appetite for music. It is a merely sensual grati fication, but of all the sensual enjoyments, it is that which is nearest akin to the intellectual. Its close alliance to the latter is indicated by the fact that it is the only sensual appetite that does not pall by excessive gratification. On the contrary, it rather "giows with what it feeds on." Sensual as it is, however, it stands more perhaps than almost un> other taste in need ot cultivation and refinement. In its incipient state, it is generally coarse and vulgar The unpractised amateur is not an epicure but a glutton. He loves strong and pungent savors. The ingredients of his dish must be inartificially palpa ble. Nothing is veiled, nothing suggestive, nothing indirect; but all must be broad, coarse and strong, to a degree the most offensive to the refined and culiivated. In all countries, even among the cold Anglo Saxons and plegmatic Germans, the wor shippers of Orpheus are eminently the vic titru ot favoritism. The art, more espe cially in its vocal department, is personally identified with the artist, and the pleasure we de rive from the "concord of sweet sounds" gives rise to a sort of hero-worship directed to those who produce them. Euhusiusm towards musical ar tista ih, therefore, common to every people, and the violence of its fire is greater in proportion to the youthfulnecs of the art. Tne maturity of refined taste, hnd the appreciation of the severe canons ot musical ori'ifi-m, cool down this ardor in a sur pri-ing manner. Still effects are now and then de veloped which are scarcely intelligible to those in whom ihe musical instinct is thua awakened. Thus in the latter part ol the last century in a scene of an opera in which the Tenor supplicates in a touching aria, a tyrantto sparethe life ot a dear friend, the artist who performed the part of the tyran- and who should have spurned the suppli cant, was so overcome by the music that he fell

upon his neck in incontrolable emotion we have ourselves seen Caradori so overpowered by Rubini s celebrated " 11 mio Tesoro," that she forgot herself on the stage and joined the audience most ardently in their enthusiastic applause by clapping. In this country, where beyond all others on the surface ol this terraqueous globe personal predilections are pushed to the most extravagant excesses, it may well be imagined that the worship of favorite per formers is in no wise less ardent than elsewhere This homage is of course rendered chiefly to the best artists whose powers have been submitted to this public, and its excess is not measured by the known standard of excellence in t urope, but by the standard established by the genius and talent with which Americans are conversant. Hence arises explosions of public enthusiasm, which to a cultivated European seem positively grotesque.? The Americans can scarcely conceive the effect which the newspaper reports of the reception ot certain artists here produce in the European capi tals. An instrumental performer of a third or fourth rate grade comes here, harbingered by a practised agent, who has a direct interest in the success of his principal?'ill the machinery of misrepresenta tion and delusion is brought into operation. Hie press is well and judiciously worked. The insensibility of editors to every thing except party politics gives great facility to this operation; and tliev allow the puff's of every ordet in Sheridan's catalogue, penned by this agent, to find vent through their columns and under the sanction ot their name. The principal in due time enters after this flourish of trumpets ? The great mass of the public are already tutored to expect a miracle. An Orpheus has descended from the heavens to wrap them in an Elysium ot pweet sounds. The great opening night arrives? The Tabernacle is ciammed to suffocation ine artist s > far fulfils the expectation in being rerhans, the best of his genus ever heard on this side of the Atlantic. The New Yo-k press takes leave of its senses, and exhausts all the vocabulary of superla tives in inditing its eulogy. This resounds through the states, and the performer is pronounced I he King of Music"?"the sreat wizard of the string " sovereign of the bow"?and his panegyric is copied into all the journals throughout the States. His course is clear. It is one continued triumph. The public does not merely approve?it adores. It does not admire?it worships. The European hearing all this of some artist who perhaps ranked hs a decent fourth or fifth rate performer, fairly concludes that Brother Jonathan has fallen into a paroxysm of insanity. Yet had the same artist appeared in Europe forty or fifty years ago. he would have been hailed bv similar outbursts of en thusiasm. It is the duty of an efficient and sound press to prevent the public from putting ''Be" ln this fake position by giving it just views of the ex isting standard of artisticaI excellence; but, alas! alas! in the present condition of the press what hope ol this can be entertained. Of all the artists, vocal or instrumental, not one really of the first order has ever crossedI the At lantic. In saying this, we do not forget that Mali bran, Caradori, Datnoreux, and Braham, have been here. Meiibran, however, when here, had not at tained her subsequent excellence. Caradori, though personally a favorite, neither is nor never was an artist of the fir. t order. Damoreux retired many years ago from the Academie Rcyal in conse quence of her declining powers not rendering her able to fill that house.

To the Editor op tub Herald t You have been making making many observa tion* upon the course which it is likely the Aboli tion party will take in the coming election, and seem at a lose to account tor the large vote which they have polled in Maine. 1 aee also, that the Whig prints are abusing the Abolitionists lor their defeat in that State. Now, Sir, aa au Abolitionist, let me solve this whole matter. The Abolition party has been sometime in exis tence, and previous to 1840 increased very slowly, i Since that time it ha* become so large as to hold the balance of power. Now in the present case, what is the obviouB course for that party to take 1 Will a retrogade movement, such as deserting its own nomination, and voting with either of the other two parties, be likely to benefit it 1 < learly not. First, Because it will take some time after wards to extricate its members again from all con nexion with the party with which it vote* Some of ihem will stick with that party. The obj-ct of the Abolitionists is to become an independent party. Now it is the fate of all third parties to hwe their independence, their unity and party impor tance, the moment they become entangled in (he viewsand policyof another party ; hence it in the true interest of our party to vote for iib own candidates Secondly, When a third party is uncertain in its course; when it may one yenr go one way, and another year another, it cannot be relied upon? tew |>ersont) will leave other parties to join it and as no efficient organization can be kept un under such circumstances, its strength and consideration will aoon dwindle away. These views will clearly showyou why the Abo litiouiata will stick to iheir own candidate; but die** are by no means the only reasons Why is it tha? the Abolition p.irtyhave increased so slowly 1 The solution of this question ought alone to guide the course of the party. The reason clearly is the pertinacity with which the issues be tween the Whig ><nd Democratic parties are main tained and kept alive. 0?e or the other of those parties must triumph effectually, before our party can hope to become large. Upon the question of a bank, a protective tariff, the public lands, internal improvements, &c , theBe two parties have been at war for forty years ; and such is the invincibility, determination and elemental strength of the Demo cratic party, that unless it has its way, those issues will still be kept up for all time to come. Can the Whig papers then abuse us for wishing to gel those old issues settled 1 Have they more reason to blame us for not voting their ticket, than we have to blame them for not voting ours 1 You must re collect that the Democratic party was so strong during the administration of Mr. Monroe, that upon his second election the federal party offered no op position. At that time the feeling against slavery at the North was stronger than it is now, and en croachments on the part of slave institutions was watched with jealousy. When Missouri was ad mitted into the Union, the whole North was against it?it was not a party question, because there was no party politics; and tor one whole winter waa the matter debated in the Senate of the U. States. Shortly after that time, the old issues between the two parties were revived, and in order to strengthen themselves, each piny connived a' slavery in the Southern States. The Southern Whigs controlled the views i f the Northern Whites upon the subject, and the same was true of the Democratic party.? As far then as the Abolitionists are concerned, let. them get the old issues between the two parties out of the way, and keep them out. Let them hrioc 'he politics of the Union to where they were in 1818, and they will become the first party in the Union?not otherwise. But a new question has been introduced into this Presidential contest,?that of the annexation of Texas to the United States The Whig prints of this city think that by voting against Mr. Clav that we virtually vote for slavery. Is this sol What has been Mr. OUy'a course upon thi3 subject! Crooked, contradictory, shuffling and electioneer ing. And in his last letter he distinctly states that the question of slavery will not influence him one way or the other on the subject,?that it would be unwise to refuse the acquisition of a valuable terri tory merely <on account of a temporary institution. That he has no personal objections to the annexa tion,?that he would be glad to see it without war, with the consent of Mexico, with the common con sent of the Union, upon fair and honorable terms. But that, as this is what he would be glad to see, he will not pledge himself to any course, and when called upon to act, if elected, he will be governed by the public opinion at the time. The result of his election then will be simply this: The Southern Whigs will compel him to give the commund to the Northern Whiits to "right about face" upon this subject, and Texas will be annexed, whether the Whi^s or Democrats succeed. At any rate, if Texas is annexed, the sin of annexation will uot lie upon the heads of those who vote for Birney.? If tne Whigs are really opposed to annexation, let them vnte for our enndidate, whose views are go clear uooit the subject that none can mistake them. Yours, &c. A Liberty Man. Orangk County Milk Drpot, Sept. 12, 184-t. Dear Sir:? I have noticed in your paper a correspond*-nee purporting to be between a Mr. Green, a self-styled ; "reformed gambler," and some sporting gentlemen j of New York, which appears to me, as I think it must to any man possessing the least discrimina tion, to be the most absurd imposture ever attempt ed upon the public by a wandering and shameless adventurer. Though I inyself am ranked among the class called "Sporting Men," I am very willing ! to see uny fair means used 10 put a stop to an evil j wlucti exerts a bunrful influence upon society, but I am not willing to see a praiseworthy cause as sisted by a fraud, nor a scheming charlatan make himself famous by a swindle. The letter pur|>ort ing i? be an anonymous epistle from "Many Sport ing Gentlemen" to Mr. Green, is *o evidently upon its lace the work of Mr. Green himself, or bis ad visers, that there is no room left for a shadow of doubt of its authorship. The truth is, Mr. Green came here in the expectation of setting the town on fire, and of reaping a vast profit by develop ments which have been in the possesion of learn ed dogs for the l?i*t twenty >eare. but fitulitig him self comparatively unnoticed, and his stale jugglery ?it a discount, he conceives the idea of representing himself as a martyr, and winning a sympathy by a plea of persecution. The idea was abetuid. Mr. Green is not of the stuff that martyrs are made of, for men do not war agaiiiet a shadow, nor level a cannon at a gnat; and he may lecture to the last drop of wind in his belly eie any one wi I interfere with his harmless operations. If Mr. Green were a man of ability, and displayed some apparent sin cerity of character, he m'ght indeed be a formida ble apostle of reform ; but a manconf ssedly ignor ant, notoriou.-ly depraved, and so shamelessly wick ed as to blacken the memory of his dead father as a drunkard, for the purpose of excusing his own disgraceful career, can command but very little respect, exert but little influence, and be formida ble only to those who hire him meeting rooms, or trust him for his board Before leaving him, let me give Mr.Green the benefit of a word of philoso phy. The great Icanse of truth can never be sus tained by indirectness or deception, and reform does not consist in changing one sort of f raud for another. Ut him, therefore, deal in future "on the square" not attempt again to swindle the public into a profitable sympathy on the pretence of per secution, for it is a hundred dollars to a red cent (barring the chances of the law) that he will die of nothing but green old age.
