az YORK HERAT,!). | !k??v Vjrk, Sunday, October 6, 1K44. Tlx.- Kickltuiciil of ll?? Day. | During the Usi tew yeaiswe have seen a variety ot excitements in thin country. We have had re ligious excitements, wrapping great district# in the flames ot that zeal and enthusiasm which the sa cred text very happily characterizes as being " with out knowledge," ai.d fpreadmg with amazing rapidity from one end ot the country to the other We have had the temperance excittment, also wide-spread and tar more beneficial in its tendency Moral excitements ot ull descriptions have had their period ot sway. Then we have had the dancing mania?and the musical mania, and all sorts ot manias. But by tar the greatest excite ment and most omnipotent mania which has yet visited us, is the excitement ot the present dav, and the CUy and Polk mania. The rapidity with which this excitement has diffused itself all over the land-the violence which has all along characters d it?its fearful increase in the receipt oi every fresh piece of intelligence from Slates where the first skirmishes have taken place?and the demoralization, lioii tiousness, immorality, tolly, falsehood and blas phemy, which have every where marked its pro gress, all render this excitement the most remark able of any with which we have been visited ? There eer'ainly never has been any political cam paign in which the genuine patriot has found more to oppress bis spirit with shame and alarm. Just let us reflect for a moment on tin* forgeries? the disreputable homes?the calumnies?the slanders?the *cuirilit)-the intemperance? the indecencies which have characterized the pre*? of both parties! And the orators, the c>ins:rels, the itinerant partizans, who have been waking so incessantly ou both sides or, h ive, equ illy with the party editors, discovered the extreme depths of degradation to which partizau ahip?unprincipled, selfish, besotled partizanship reduces all men who permit that vile spint to ob tain the mastery over them. The newopupers ol the whifcs, and the whig orators have been haid at work for three ?r four mouths past, proving tlieii opponents, the democrats, from Mr Polk down to the lowest member of the " Empire Club," to be the greatest set of villains unhung, that ever pollu ted any country And just so on the other side. The democrats have been equally industrious in the effort to prove that the whigs are, without ex ception, all bad, ull disreputable, all a disgrace to the country. Indeed, wc do not believe thht in any previous Presidential contest, bus there been such an out lonring of vituperation, slauder, and persoiihl ?tbuse of the most vulgar and revolting character buch general and disgusting exhibitions of the vilest pas-siona of the human heart, as have been mani fested during the present campaign. We have en deavored to collect some ot the grossest specimens o( abuse and vituperation, from the various party papers of both tides; but the torrent of blackguard ism became, weeks ago, so swollen, that it was mpussible even to give any tolerable sample ot its vileneas. Every principle ot morality?of religion ?of common decency, appears to be set at nought by the active partizans on both sides. And the ex citement pervades all classes. It operates uni versally. Nothing else is talked of, or inought of, but the coming contest. Even the fine arts?the theatres-the places of uinuseinent, are affected by this extraordinary outburst ot political liceu nousiu-ss and lolly. Certainly no true friend of this country can be hold ail this with< ut sorrow and alarm. It isonl) this fierce and di.-agraceful paruzan spirit whicl blots and blurs the beauty of that great niovemen wlncti is going Oil with tuchprosperity and triumpl in ihis mighty laud. Surely, then, it becoinebtlia great, influential, and all-powerful body of hones ? nd reputable men?the neutrals, the honorabU citizens who stand aloof from the filthy arena o party politics?to come forth and unite in pnliiii(i down that unhallowed and demoralizing spirii which is now disgracing the character ol our fret institutions. When snail we see the great third party arising in its majesty and strength to give ut a just and tquitible government, salutary reform, .tnd a wise and honest administration of the laws, altogether irrespective ot men, and irrespective ol urty the distinctions which are now arraying brother ?g tiust brother, and covering the whole laud with dishonor and disgrace 1 Postage Reform -it is not a little remarkable, and shows us bow blinded men become to their real interests in ihe excitement of political strife, that, amiist all the clamor at present raised aboat reforms and new measures, not a word issaid aboiii postage reform-a measure of the greatest possible public utility, and of universal interest and impor tance This is indeed a real reform, tor it con cerns (he pockets, the feelings, the convenience, and the interest of everv individual throughout the country. Yet the politicians and office-seekers of both sides are so much engaged in trying to humbug each other and the great neutral masses, who will decide the contest, that they have no lime to look after any thing but the attainment of their own ends by the most paltry means imaginable. The Post-Office departinrnt was never in such a dilapidated condition as at this moment, it had been reduced to this lamentable condition by ihe ignorance, tolly, presumption and stupidity ol the head ol the department, aid<d and abetted by men of the same calibre, such cs the Postmasters ol New York and other places, who have advised him. What has been the result 1 By obstinately peinisting in withholding his consent to reduce the present opprt ssive rates of postage, he has created lio.-is ol post masters on their own hook, who are appropriating all the profits and advantages arising irom the transmission ol .-iters an the great routts between the chief cities, so that the post-ottin department will be quite broken down long befoif the next session ot Congress It is surely lime fol the people to siir in this matter. A pledge ot post office reform should be exacted from every candi date for Congress. All favorable to the measui* ahould at once hold public meetings and com mence moving in the matter. Irish Repeal Meetings in New Yore ?W? i rceive that the Irish Repealers here have an iiouncfid their intention ol holding a mass meeting of " the fWeads ol Ireland," at Tammany Hall, on Wednesday evening next. This movement hai originated in the news of the liberation of O Con ned?a piece of intelligence received by the last steamer. It is the iniofortuue of the Irish people here that they will persist in keeping themselves so isolated and peculiarly clanish. If they discovered a pr? ? per Hfirit ot love towards universal liberty they would call upon all those who are friendly to the tlevitiion of the popular manses not ot Ireland alone, but ot Scotland, England, France and all Europe, instead of making iheir cause a purely Irish loca. cause, they should make it European and urnver sal. By the auoption of this policy they would re ceive the sympathy of na.ive*of all lands, whether European or American. Tlie oniy ground ol hop lor Ireland is in a general movement of the mas*e hi tha British empire, As to the reform pursued b> VIr. O'ConncIl?which is peculiarly Irish in it character, and, indeed, we may say sectarian, f<> it is Roman Catholic as much as any thing ehe?i is one of the greatest phantoms aiid delusions ? the aRe. It never can be realised A s? palatini of Ireland in any form from England can never li realized without ihe consent of Scotland and Eng Uud, which never can he obtained. The only hop ot Ireland's salvation is in a great, united, generi movement in favor of liberty. And, therefore, lli only proper policy of those who profess to be ih friends of Ireland t* to unite with all in a sirnih condition throughout the British empire and nial < their cause not a local but a universal one.

C. DUMAS. On the second day of June, at 1 o'clock, P. M., the Kn kIuu n ur brig Alert, was lying to at anchor, five mile* oil Cubinda Hei boat came alongside, manned by two officers one boy, and lour negro sailors, (called Crew ineu ) The Cspt ol the Alert, Mr. Bosanquet, (alter I told him that the bi ig was the Cyrus, ol New Orleans, and visited once by him by lorce, to nave hiuisell the tiouble to vi-iit my vessel twice and at the same time asked him who he w as, and to show me a po'ver from my govern ment to visit me,) answered, putting his hands on hi* fl ig?"This tells who I am^' and said to me, "1 will come on buard and you will see " ''Very well, sir; a protest shall be m.ide lor violating the treaty " The moment he got on deck with his officer* and crew, he ordeted his men to open my hatches fore and aft?went down himself w ith his compdiiy, and came on deck after he found that the vessel had nothing but water ballast, (nothing else,) then cumo towards me, anil said in a rough manner?"1 want to see your papers." My answer was in the same time?'Since, when a man like you, takes the liberty to jump ou board of au American vessel, against the Cap tain's will opening hatches, searching the cabin, and all ov? r the ship, w itbout speaking a word to me; and be sides that, I must show j ou my paper*?please tell me who you an?7-Von are not in uniform; auy pirate can come to an iinchor like your brig, and send a boat with im Knglish flag, as jou do- Please show me a power to visit mo?then, on th *|>ot, I will show you my paper*." llesaid?"I have it, but it is on board." i'Well, go and get it " "My word if good enough " I said that I was not obliged io believe him?then again he asked for the p>iper* "you shall not *ee them." "Well, if you don't show me your paper* I will take you to be a Pirate, and from tnis moment I take charge of the brig " My an*wer wa*?"Ah long as that & <g is hoisted, and my paper* on board. I shall be the Cupt.iin ol my own ship; or, if you wish to take chaige ol her, you must send for more lorce, or order your hiig to come alongside to fire into me, until I am killed,holding the ensign h<illiardain iny hands " Dur it g the conversation I held my log book in the lelt hand; then, thinking I would show my papers quicker, be *aid to me?"The reason why you cannot show me the papets i* btcause you have sold jour vessel? I was told so " "It is not tiue; if my veuel wa* sold I would not have the American flag up;l nor my crew would be on board low." Vexed to find that he could not auccced in any way, he then laid, '? Well. 1 will go in the cabin and make search all over " Immediately I placed the American flag belore the cabin door, which was held tight by mylelf, the mate and two of my men ; nnd I observed to him that he could not 1 step into the cabin without trampling on the United Mates II ig " His answer was, that ''it made no difference to him," nnd ho instantly rushed into the c tbin, followed by bis oHicer and a negro, who trampled the Aig under their feet in pretence of my crew. Then I said, ' Boy*, our II ig is insulted?it will co*t dear to tee English nation!" They all came on deck and the Captain told m? to let him have my log book My answer was, "Never! and as long as I had a drop of blood in my veins no British subject would take it away Irom mo."? Then, he observed, that he bad " the power to obtain it by force ;" at the same time he ordered one ol his negroe* to take the book from me, who obeyed ihe order given to him. I stepptd back, pushing the negro, and called on my mate and crew to aasUt me and to arm themselves with handspikes nnd knive*, and be ready to strike, in case the British officer gave a new order. At tbi* the British cap tain turned pule, and with the voice of a coward, said to mn : "Captain, stop y< ur men?I don't wish to aee any blood shed or butchery;" then nothing took place. He wanted to go into the cabin to make a second search I observed to him that * my papers were on board, in my trunk,"and showed him the key. He said. "Let me have the key. or I shall take it by lorce" My an swer was " Have yon forgotten what took place for the log-hook belore? Dn you wish to begin again 7" " Tht n," he said, " 1 will go in the c?bin and have your trunk broken open " I gave him no answer He sent his officers and a negro to act. 1 lollowed th*m with my mute They broke the trunk and took the paper* out of it. I observed to the officer that I had money in iny trunk, a fcold watch, etc. He made no answer, and we all went on duck, lie handed the papers to his Captain I then told him, "Now, jou are atisfied with your chrf dauirrei, please to give me mv papers, as I wi-h t > sail to morrow." " N . sir, I will keep them with me, aud pocket them, and gooff I then said to him, "As long as my papers are taken away from me, 1 shall have to leave my vessel,''? and, thereupon, me and my crew ahan loned her ; leaving every thing on board ; trunks, initrument*, chronometer, &<J, fcc.

Thk " Roorback" Forgery?We believe we have at last got the whole history of this forgery from its commencement to the end. It appears iliat it had its origin in a hoax?that a Mr. Linn of Ithaca, in this State?a whig, and not a locofoco, as he has been represented by some of the whig papers,?made the celebrated interpolation in the extract irom Featherstonhaugh's book, and sent it to the editor of the Ithaca Chronicle, whig paj?er, for publication, with the express object, as Linn alleges, of discovering whether the editor of that paper, " moral and religious, as he was allowed to be, would not, equally wilh others, publish any falsehood, however gross, if he could thereby ef fect a political object." Altogether unaware of (lie fraud, as he states, ihe editor of the village pa per just named, published the extract, nnd from iiis columns it was transferred to the Albany Pa triot, and from thence it was taken by Thurlow Weed and adopted as his own. From the Eve ning Journal n was at once copied extensively, and lidsiiow been circulated all over the Union, doubt lees in many quarters where the exposure of the forgery will n^ver be made. Whdtan extraordinary?what a melancholy sto ry! It would be difficult perhaps to obtain any lore striking illustration of the demoralizing eflect of party spirit than this story affords. The story of Lzt-kiel Polk was another instance of the same kiud, and in all probability, we shall have a dozen <>t two of fresh forgeries before the day of election. "The Natives."?The last meeting of the "na tives" at Vauxhall showed some symptoms ol re turning spuuk. About two thousand persons were present, but by no means twenty thousand, as some of the papers state. This is sufficient, how ever, to present a new aspect in the approaching State election. The democrats, of course, will nominate ilieir candidates for all the national and State offices. The wliigs are proceeding in the same movement, and now the " natives" are no minating their candidates. The only result of >>uch conflicting tickets will be to entirely prostrate die whiga and "natives," and give a strong and overwhelming majority to the democrats. The whig and " native" tickets nrtist merge into each other. The two parties must mingle at once. The wliigs must adopt the identical principles of the " natives" with all 'heir intolerance, bigotry and proscription, otherwise they will both be de feated. We also perceive that another " native" paper is about to be started, and we should not be sur prised to see two or three more before next spring i'he fact is, no party was ? ver split up into more (liquet than are the " natives" already. Mii.lsrisik.?The following notice may be seen in the window ot a tailor and draper, Fifth street, h -low Market r,treet, Philadelphia, who has closed Ins store, and placed the following placard on his shutters:? oooooooooooooooooooooooono oooooooo g Tbl* Shop is cosed in honor ol the 8 | King ol Kings, ' o Who Will appear about the 2Jd o : ol October. ? Get ready, friend*, to crown him 3 ? Lord of all. | oooooooooon ooooooooooooooooooooooo This id only to be equalled by the person who n few days since, in Kosion, sent all his wearing ap parel and other articles of pro|>erty to the auction store to be disposed of, saying that what he then wore would be sufficient for his purpose, as this world would come to an end in a few day's lime. Theatrical and Musical ?Daring the last few w.eka a number ofsymptoms have presented them selves, shewing that notwithstanding the crowd* of people in the city, the iheatres, concert-rooms, exhibitions, and everything else are not so fully at tended as last year about this time. This may be en-ily accounted lor, from the political excitement which rn w r-'iges with such unexampled violence and abuorb* every other fet ling But once this uliHtdee, ihen will commence the real fashionable ?e. on lor the opera, the ballet, the theatres, cou ' ?, f.i'-hionaW. tot reel, exhibitions ol ihe fine 'r Hfl(' M) ?#. 15ut up to the middle of November < rnay < *pect nothing but politics?politicf?? jioli tics -Clay?Clay?Clay- Polk--Polk-Polk. I/KMOCRATIG Nomination.?Mr. Edward II Nieoll wa* l ist evening nominated as candidate Ol Congress from the third district. The native., nave nominated Mr. Miller. Tluitrludi, Su. Hetr Alexandre, the magician, is about to visit Nashville. Mr. J. Sloman and the Misses Sloman, are giv ing Concert? at the Melodeon Theatre, Boston. The Hutchinsons are giving concert* at Port land. . Mr. Booth terminated his engagementit the Pittsburgh Theatre on Tuesday bveinag . Mr. Phillips, the celebrated vocahat, ha? deter mined tinst to visit Philadelphia, !? first concert there to-morrow evening, instead of going to Boston. La Polka ?Korpouay.the great celebrated duuce, leaves Boston on the first of No vember, in consequence of his engagements in this city. . . .. In London, Henry Rusaell, whom the people o the United States have " admired andwondered at" has given a series of concerts in the <*???? Concert Room, Hanover Square. A critic of the Great Metropolis speaks of the musician and his entertainments thus: ' His voice is a bar tone of considerable register, resonant, and tlie intonation unexceptionable, ^oifSh th quality is tar from agreeable, until the ear becomes accustomed to. its brassy peculiar, itv Ab musical compositions, hn aongi canno rank very high There is little novelty, and a lack of musicianly knowledge, but there is dash, ener gy. and sufficient tune to carry the general ear, and when executed by Russell, they attain a value much beyond their intrinsic merit, lhe attend nnce was immense ; every corner of th? room was densely crowded, and his welcome most enthusi astic. Italian Opera.?The second performance of the new billet, "The Independence of Greece, or the Women Warriors," came of! last evening before a tolerably good house, considering the ostracism which our fashionables have deemed proper to in flict on Saturday nights. The reason of this slight put on that unfortunate day is, and will be, a mys tery to the " future generation," unlets this reason be found in the circumstance, that fashionables generally act without any reason at all; for if the bon ton, far excellence, does not absolutely prescribe the attendance at the opera of a Saturday, it hardly cun be considered to be mauvait ton to enjoy a pleasant evening on the last day of the week, and in consulting our Chesterfield, we looked in vain for the anathema. Those who had courage enough to brave the verdict of fa-hion?that nondescript which cannot be felt, seen, beard, or explained? had reason to be satisfied with the entertainment. We do not mean to say that it can vie with the fabulous splendor of ballets in Paris and London, but taking it all together, it reflects much credit on the manager and the dancers, and the "^inni*? gives much hope for future exhibitions of the light fantastic toe." The argument is as simple 1 and clear as an argument should be ; the action is lively, and int.-rspersed with frequent/w? and baUa bilet, which banish the usual monotony of a ballet I d'action. The only fault which can be lound in it is. i that the events which form the groundwork of i the ballet are of too recent a date, and there fore give rise to several anachronisms in cos | mines and similar things. The heroine was per sonated by M'lle Desjardins, the prima donna of : the chorographical department, ana frequently de ! lighted her numerous admirers by the grace of her I movements, the skill and vigor of her steps, and ! th*- expression of her nnmics. She shone very ! much in the pas de deux with Martin, who likewise I acquitted himself very well, if we except several figures in his soli, on which he sometimes used too I much violence to be thoroughly graceful. This vat was the gem of the evening, and its general effect would still have been greater it it would not 1 end so abruptly. Madame De Barr displayed a re 1 spectable talent in her pat teul, which necessarily must be very short. Her toile te was very charming, but ringlets won't do far a da??eu?e ? In Miss Celeste, who figured last winter a "la petite Celeste" lies the germ of an first rate dancer; she was much applauded in her pat de deux with the clever M'lle Vallce. The rorvt de ballet wanta some drilling and equality of ac ion. Their general appearance would greatly improve, if the very short ones would not be placed immediately next to the very tall ones. We regret that we cannot say much good of the music; it lacks freshness and variety of melodies. From Mr. Loder's reputation, a better taste in the selection could have been expected. Nothing could have been more appropriate than to adapt the music from Rossini's splendid opera " Iji Siege de to rinthe," which was written for a similar text ; in stead of dishing up a series of lachrymose airs, which can only emanate from the clanonette of a blind man with his dog in the Champt Elytiet. It certainly is to be regretted that there are so many tiuadnile tunes in our modem operas, but in ballets they are in their right place. The scenery is very neat and the getting up is very praiseworthy, we must not forget to mention that the ladies tireo their guns with much greater precision than the gentlemen. ???????? Tub National Gallery of Paintings oper.a to-morrow. It contains the principal paintings in the fine collection of the late Luman Reed, with a number of others of great merit, by our most distinguished artists. It will be lound the most ' vivid, attractive, and rerherchi exhibition seen in this city for many years. Several of the paintings ' are of great value, and have attracted great atteu ! tion from artists and amateurs. We shall give a minute account of the exhibition hereafter. Tub American Institute Fair for the present year opens at Niblo's to-morrow It will be one of the greatest atlairs of the kind we have yet seen. They are to have ploughing matches at Fordhsm, n grand exhibition of fruit and flowers, and every i thing under the sun at Niblo's?speeches, consulta ; lions, music, orations, and what not. A great deal of money will be taken at the doors, and thus peo ple will begin to put the annual query, what be ! comes of all this money! Who getsitl What do they do with it 1 For the last sixteen years peo pie have been trying to get this short catechism an l swered, but somehow they can't manage it at all, and the matter is as great a mystery as ever. Ole Bull.?The great maestro on the violin has arrived in town, and gives a concert at Niblo's on Tuesday next. Little Delaware is Btill strongly claimed by both parties.

Amoug the contributors will be found the names of Mrs. Kirkland, Anne C. Lynch, Mrs. L. H. Sigour ney, H. W. Longfellow, Joseph C Neal, C. F.

The Drama or Ex ilk, and other Poems, bv E. B. Barrett. H G.

Home pretty pieces in the two volumes worthy of I perusal. | Incidents ok Social Life amid the Eitropkan Alps?Appleton and Co., New Yoik.?This is a translation from the German ot J. Heinrich D. Zschokke, by Lewis Strack ?The prefatory no tice states that the scenery is the landscape in the actual reality, and the characters are veritable por traits, while all the rest is "Life as it is," and as ! constantly exemplified, around "the European Alps." These sketches are certainly not "trifles I light as air," but ought to be classed among the weightier specimens of real and decorative biogra phy, which is, as the work states, " history teach ing by example " The Bible Question fairly Tested ?Casserly und Sons, New York.?This small work contains Fenelon's celebrated Letter on the use of the Bi ble, with Fletcher's Illustrations; the celebrated pastoral charge ot the archbishop of Tours, on the I authority of the Church to interpret the Scriptures; also an article from the Dublin Review on Protes tant Evidences of Catholicity, by Dr J.

Sydney Smith, vol. 2; Carey Je Hart, Philadelphia.?Somewhat better got up than the previous volume. The whole of the works, (three volumes,) of this popular writer, may now be had for something less than 60 cents cheap enough in ail conscience. The Pkophicies of Daniel?Nebuchadnezzar's bream of the Great Image, No 2; Harper bro thers, New York.?Prof Bush thus continues to add to the valuable biblical knowledge of the country. McCulloch's Gazetteer, part 18; Harper Bro. thers, New York.?A most useful, cheap, and well got up work. The Wandering Jew, No. 3; Harper Brothers, New York ?A good six cent work. The Warning of Thomas Jefferson ; Cunning ham, Pniladelphia.?This pamphlet is one of those with which the press of Philadelphia abounds, and which it is to be feared has helped considerably to produce those scenes with which that city has re cently been disgraced. This work may be consi dered us an attempt at a brief exposition of the dangers to be apprehended to our civil and reli gious liberties from Presbyterianism. But we do not think that Mr. Justus E. Moore makes that clearer than from many other i?m$ not so much so as from Native-i*m. Hague's United States Horoscope, for Octo ber; Hague, Philadelphia.?A trifle for the wonder eeeking and curious. Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine, for Sep tember; Scott &c Co., New York. As rich and racy as ever. The Democratic Review, for October; Langley, New Yoik ?A capital number. The article, "One last word before the election," should be read by every well wisher of the country previous to that occurrence.

This organ of the radical party in England, has just been issued by the well known publishers of ihe British Reprints, L. Scott & Co. The present number appears to be more than usually interesting, and in several of its articles exhibits in a strong light, the peculiar doctrines of the Review. We notice particularly the article on "Tithes and Rent Charges/' and the "Review of the Public Life of the Bishop of London." Theoe> two sub jects are handled without mercy, as also the abomi nable system of opening private letters at the Eng lish Post Office Department, which constitutes ano ther very able article, 'ihe leading paper on "Railway Administration and Improvement," will be fouud highly useful and interesting to railroad companies and lailroad travellers, being illustrated by several engravings. The remaining articles are a review of D'lsraeli's novel?" Coningsby," "The Prize Comedy and the Prize Committee," "Colli sion of Ships, and Rules of the Sea, " Beau marchiasand Sophie Aurnold," "Critical and Mis cellaneous Notices," &c. The present number ol the Westminster Review, and the last number of Blackwood's Magazine, published hy f^cott ic Co., a short time since, we regard as the two best that have been issued trom their press in a longtime Hlackwood, it will be remembered, contained the .-p!eudid article on the Burns' Festival, and the eloqueut speech of Professor Wilson on that great occasiou, which of itselt is worth more than the rriceof a year's subscription lor the magazine.
