NEW YORK HERALD. Slew York, Sanitey, Ovtot??r SO, lltM. No Htenmer Yet. (JO- Tlie Long Island Railroad train came in last evening-but no steamer yet. It haa been very foggy down east, and the boat ia either de delayed by that fog, or ia ashore. Only twelve passengers came in the train last evening, proba bly on account of the atorm. We may have the news this morning, and if ?o an EXTRA HERALD will be issued at once. Political Movement* In the Clljr. ' The political movements in the city are now in teresting in the extreme. This interest pertains to all the, and particularly to the three great parties, embracing the " natives," the whig., and the democrats. The other two small parties, the abolitionists and 44 retormers," are too minute at this election in this latitude to require much at tention. . To-morrow afternoon the " natives hold their first great mass meeting prior to the election, and a great deal of interest hinges upon it, in conse q trnce of their singular position, and the great lu ll lence thev may exercise on the Presidential elrc t on in this State. Ttiey have nominated Congress men. Senators and Members ef Assembly ; and in consequence ot the critical position of the otner tw<. parties, i? is probable that both will enter into the field for the purpose of bargaining with the " na ives," thereby g-ving that ticket an extraordi nary triumph To morrow, as we have sa d, this mt?s meeting takes place, and we may expect a g eat dea' of curious movement?strange speeches? ? ngul r developments?and all soru ot interesting incidents. A meeting of the 41 natives" was held in a private way at Military Hall on Friday even in*, at which one o? the speakers, from Phila delph a. made a very curious speech on the subject ot "nativeUm." The same and other j ipenkers will appear on the ? native" platform to morrow afternoon. Amongst the whigs several inteiesting move, men's are also on the carpet. We perceive that the young " Henry Clay associations," as they are called, of 44 Youn< A-nerics." of the whig side, intend to hold a great mass m-eting, to be followed by a grand procession on Wednesday, st which we understand Casssius N*. Clay, now in tVs city, will speak, together with Mr. Webster, Mr. Granger, and possibly some other important orators These associations *1 44 Young Americ t" are composed of nearly two thousand young men who have never voted before this year. They have been but recently organized, and their pro gress has been so rapid as to alarm the "old j hunkers" ft the whig*, composed ot those clubs under the Presidency of J*me9 N Reynolds We understand that Reynolds and his particular chqu* have been endeavoring for sometime past to pre vent anv mass meeting ot the young whigs, lor fear, if Mr Clay should be elected, that thev mi*ht find'esp-cial favor and dei-rive the old clique* ot their influence*. These young whig associations have a reading room nt Masonic Hall, \*here they have also commodious committee-rooms. They intend on Wednesday to get up a tremendous procession, comprising ten trade-, all at work a great cavalcade of hors-s-and an imposing number of friends from different parts of the country They expect from Albany one thou aind?from Boston one thousand?from Provi dence one thousand?and floods of people Irom j New Jersey, nnd all round about the coun try. It is to be a demonstration of the strength, enthusiasm and majesty ot 44 young Ame rica, "of the whig stamp, in opposition to ihe old whig clique here who have been mismanaging things during the last sumnWr, and almost ruined the cause of Henry Clay The papers in this city, BU<-h as the Tribune and h xprru won't notice this mighty movement, because they are entirely in the Interest of Reynolds, and the old, rotten and cor rupt whu clubs. We have no doubt the display on Wednesday will be tremendous This "young America" possesses tact, energy and talent, and means to carry out its purposes. Another movement is under advisement amongst the democrats. We understand that they intend to hold a great "native" democratic meeting, *^ry soon in the Park, composed of all those 44 na tives" formerly democrats, who supported the "na tive" ticket last Spring. This branch ol the44 na tive" party still intend to support their own presi dential candidate, Mr. Polk, and they intend to come out strong agninst the movement made by Miller, the *4 native " candidate tor Congress hi the Third Ward, and all those who support him This will be a very interesting movement in rela tion to the Presidency, and the election in this city, and perhaps some of the premonitory symptoms of this sentiment may be discovered at the "native" meeting to-morrow afternoon Senatorial Candidates ?The ^several candi date* for the Sennit* in this ciiy are these?first, Mr. Sanlord, by the democrats?Hiram Ketchum by the whifrs?and George Folaom by the "Natives." The merits of these men are altogether different. Mr. SdHford is a very amiable man, son of a late Chancellor, but has no remarkable brilliancy of talent, although he would make a good locofoco when properly trained. Hiratn Ketchum is well known as being one o( the most higotted, bitter, and narrow minded politicians that ever existed in this ci<y; and Heaven knows that is extending the ground < f comparison to a tolerable extent. He is altogether the most unfit candidate which the whigs could put up. George Folsom, nominated by the "Native*," is a very liberal minded person, a fine scholar, and an honest man?more so than any of the politicians of the day. He would be an honor to the Senate of the State; and we trust that the liberal portion of the whig* and of every other party, will take tins into consideration and abandon such a narrow minded, vinegar cruet sort oi a man u Hiram Ketchum. Fmvll Potato Movkmbnt* ?Thur'ow Weed is very bury, we understand, endeavoring to iffeit a union between the abolitionists and the wbige ui th* interior of the State, so as to strengthen the Clay elecoral ticket Thurlow can accomplish this in no other wsy than that which we have for merly pointed out to him, and Hist is by abandon ing m rv. iy ,ii>oliiii>n county the whig ticket, tron< lop to bottom, and adwprmg the abolition candi dates By this meat s Thurlow may get fitteen thousand votes for Mr Ciay. Another operation l* also on loot by Thurlow and Greeley?that is, to gain over the Irish repealers through the ugenc) ol Governor Seward It Mema they have em ployed an Irishman by the name ol Neagle to elee tioneer through the Siate for the purp< se of catch ing his countrymen. The best way to acconiplisl that would be to pertunde the ln*h that ihe whif electoral ticket means io give its votes for Dat.u O'Connell for the Presidency Theie then migh be some chance. As it i*? bah! fUroiM* Wanted ?We want a reform of th? gas monopoly?we want a reform ol the police?w> want a reform of the post office department, and a reduction of postage?we want a reform of the op pressive and ridiculous militia laws?and a vaiiet; of other reforms. If any party were to avow usel fnr those reform* it would triumph. If the " na live*" would come forth boldly and pledge them ?elve* to those reiorms, they would gaiu a vast at cession of strength. Storm ?Between twtiv'' and ot?e o'clock yester day morning, this >ity was visited with a preU\ heavy storm, accompanied by as heavy a showei of rain and as vivid lightning aj we ever remem ber to have noticed.

Dear Sib I take the liberty to write you, accompanying my let ter with a report of a dinner which came on here on the glorious 4th. I send herewith a newspaper containing lull particulars I would like to call yotir attention to the disgraceful conduct of the ma<i?r of an American veaael on tbis coast The brig Philip Hone, of your port, which left hero about a month ago, passed a vessel bottom up at sea, and in spit* of the solicitations of hii mat" and passen gers, the captain refused to bear down and aacertuin her name?conduct the morn culpable, that he waa aware that the Empress, an American vessel, waa long over dun. and that a great d?al of uneasiness waa telt here about her You can aa'iify yonrselt of the truth of thi< statement by applying to Mr. H r, who came home passenger in her * The Chilian government, with great prump'itude, aa ionn an they heard of it, aentout a man of war to try and pick up any oue on the wreck, but the must have Mink, tor although they craised xh'iut the place whar>< the cip'ain of the P. Hone reported her, no thiugn.ore could be aren of her. Business at Valparaiso was very dull?money scarce, the Government having most of that col lected for duties in their chests.

As matters arc now proceeding, they will either by accident or design, set fire to the city, create mobs, and insurrection. Only look at the terrible state of the city during the past week! On one evening several serious rows and street fights took place, and one of the hotels was in imminent danger 'of totiil destruction by burning down to the ground. Such are the fruits of the conduct of our monied men throwing away their money in this foolish and disgraceful manner. Ol? Noah in thk Field ?Old Noah, of whom we have heard but little of late, has, it seems, start ed into the field again. He has " cut" politics, and now betakes himself to the old subject of the re storation of the "chosen people." He proposes to give a lecture on religion, eternity, the age of th' world, the end of all things, the interpietation ol the prophecis, the gathering in of the tribes, and their triumphant return to the Holy City. He en ters, in fact, into the field of controversy with the Millerites, the Mormonites, and Margaret Bishop. Margaret b? lieves that the "end" has indeed come ?that the " time" is past?and that some morning before sun-rise the bridegroom will be seen in the cloudx, when people least expect him. Noah's views on all these points will be rather curious He is now in his ptoper vocation, and we mutt give hirn a little attention. Pfdkstrian Matches.?Upon reference to the columns of our papere f?r the Inst few days past, there have been various rumors of other pedestrian matches about to come off, all arising out of the great match of Wednesday last. John Barlow, anxious to have another opportunity of testing his powers before he returned to England, is ued a challenge to any native American to contest with him a match for ten miles, with the hope of Gil dersleeve accepting the challenge, and last even ing was appointed for settling the matter at the Second Ward Hotel, Nassau street, according to notice. About nine o'clock the matter wae brought forward. Mr. E. Jones, the worthy host, said, that he was empowered to make the necessa ry deposit on behalf of John Barlow, to run ten miles over the Centreville Coutue, Long Island The reason this ground was selected was, that it being further from the city there was not that like lihood of audi a mob to break in upon the ar rangements oithe day, as there was on Wednesday at the Beacon Course, to the great dunger of every respectable person present; and, further, that there all parties would have an opportunity of ?teeing the sport at a much more reason able cost. Mr. Browning, on behalf o I John Oilderbleeve said, that he wan em powered to make a match of 11 to 15 miles for ?if 1,001) to $5,000 to come off over the Beacon Course; not hut that he thought a match would not be objected to over the Bume ground for ten mil?*. Mr. Jones said, he was not empowered to agree to the match coming oft ov#?r any other ground than the one he mentioned. Mr. Browning, tieusaid, the matter is at an end; tor Mr. Gilder dlrev? has directed me to say that he will not run over any other ground. The gentleman then with drew. Several parties present were loud in their commendations of the exertions of Gilderaleeve on the late occasion, and expressed their readiness to subscribe to a handsome testimonial to be pre sented to him in honor of his native land, to which he was an ornament, among the foremost of which was the worthy host himself. There is little doubi but that something handsome w ill be done for thit> enterprising, painstaking, and deserving youuc man. The Militia ?There will be a great turn out <>f the nuliiia to-morrow, comprising both the loaf ers and the regulars Let the public ser and judge fi?r themselves. There is nothing of which we s< much approve as the uniform militia of this city Tne volunteer unilorm companies are an honor to <he city, and to the highly respectable young mm who compose them. In appearance, discipline, and soldierly bearing, they would comratt not un favorably with some of the regular European regi uents. But nothing is so ridiculous or so much a burlesque, on everything like military organiza tion, at the "loafer militia." The whole thing ih absurd. Tie system is u?ed only by a few indi viduals to give them a little consequence, and b> the imposition of fines, to obtain the means of guz /ling at the expense of mechanics and professional it' n, who are worried into payment of these un mst demand*. Some tffort should, we trust, be made to abolish this oppressive humbug next n<>n'h. Bank Notes or orHKK Siaits ?

After two postponements on account of the weather, the great ploughing match under the ?us pices of the American Institute, came off* yesterday at Fordham. Although several hundreds of spec tators were assembled to witness it, there probably would have been many more, had it not been tor the uncertain appearance ot the morning and pre* vious disappointments; the day, however, turned out beautiful, and all on the ground appeared to en joy the scene to the fullest extent. The plot chosen for this trial of skill between the sturdy sons of the soil, was a large field containing some eight or ten acres belonging to the Rev. Mr Powell, and lying a quarter of a mile from ihe rail road. Nothing could be better suited for the pur pose; the surface was even, the soil a rich deep loam in the lea state, and without any obstacles in the shape of inequalities, stones, or any of those remains which commonly abound in newly reclaim ed soil. A fine view was obtained, too, from a gentle eminence at one end of the park, from whence the eye could take in all the teams at a look, without a change of position. As is usual on such occasions, a good deal of time passed in preliminary regulations, and it was nearly one o'clock ere the competitors in the spading match tell into their places In this case there were six candidates for the prizes offered, which were as followt:?" For the best spading of ground twenty left loug and ten feet wide, silver eui>, value eight dollars; serond best, silver medal, third best, diplomaOn the word being given to start, each man delved his spade in the earth with the force of Hercules, and :t was evident that nothing that s rength could do would be left un done by any of the six Much animation whs ex cited in the lookers-on, who were with difficulty kept back from tramping ou the upturned sods In geuious speculations, and crafty conjectures as to who should be the victor, abounded on all sides as the work went bravely on; whilst in some cases the personal friends and cronieB of the spademen were seen to sit, kneel, and go on all fours to take a more profound and searching view of the pro gress ol their favorite. It is sufficient here to add that the work was done well, and in a short' r time, in one or two cases, than was calculated. On the amount of the award of the Judges in the evening, we ascertained it 'o be as follows:? First premium to Jnaepb Lodge, time, 30 minutes. S-coiid do. to WillUro P Lodge, time, SO miuutei. Third do. to Mathew Roacli, time 34 minutes. Immediately after the conclusion of the spading, the teams entered for the ploughing match were ordered to fall in, which was promptly obevrd by no less than ten merry ploughmen, "who whistled o'er the lea," to break ground in anticipation ot ttiumph, each and all of them. Eleven competi tors hart entered their names, hut one withdrew, leaving the number at ten, six of whose teams ol cattle were oxen and four horses The conditions were? "For the best ploughing, performed in one hour on one eighth ot on sere of gueiiKward, a silver cup, value eight dollar*. Second best silver medal. Third best diploma ' The list of the names and the order in which the ground was allotted lo them stood thus:? No. 1. Matthew Ray, West Farm, Westchester county, , a'pair of horses. " 2. J'>hn Savage, same place, n pair of oxen. " 3. Jehn Ray, M^rrisisna WeitchfcUer county, do. " 4. Muien Rogers. Wei' Kauri, ,do do. " 6 Lewis G. M rrio, Fordham, do do. " 6.

" 11 Cornelius Bergen, Br oklyn, Kings co, horses. During the contest, which was over in an incre dibly short space of time, a capital ojiportunity wh> presented of comparing the merits of hones with 'hose of oxen or plough cattle. The comparison, upon the whole was in favor of the latter, their superior steadiness and uniformity ot motion being quite apparent, that is in those cases in which they were well trained; but without this training they are decidedly too green to compete with the innate sagacity of the horse. As to speed, the complaint often made about the sluggishness ol oxen would, from ihe result of the present contest, appearto be unfounded, tor we find that the task was accomplished in the shortest time by oxen, and that the longest time by a good deal, was taken by horses. Owing to the quality of the soil, and the late rain, the ?cores lay wellupand compactly together, the ploughs were never throwngout, and the work appeared toso much the better advantage, indeed except in one or two cases, it was done creditably, and in four or five of a highly meritorious charac ter. As in the spading mateh, emulation was strong at work, ana lent its influence to the lookers on, who really appeared as much, if not more con cerned in the termination of the contest than the principals ; and there is room for conjecture that, had it not been for the active supervision of Mr. Kllison, of Connecticut, who was Marshal for the day?there would have been other animals besides quadrupeds buckled to the harness. Nothing requiring a particular notice occurred duriug the performance of the work, which whs performed in even less time than was expected, the candidates dropping out in the following order :?

As soon as all had got done, the committee and judges took their places on a commodious plat form erected for the purpose in the Held, whithet the spectators repaired, and were addressed by Mr Meigs in his usual, clear and manly way, in the conclusion of whose address the announcement was made, that the. Judges would announce their decision at Berriao'a Hotel, which accordingly took place about 5 o'clock, as follows: First premium jot silver-cup to John May, Morrisiana. Westchester county. Second do. silver medal to Moses Rogers of West Farms, Westchester county. Third do. diploma to M-ithew Ray, West Farm, do. In a short time after the award wan pronounced, the tr.iin came up,and put a stop to numerous good but short speeches, pithy sayings, and good hu mored discussions which were going on, and which promised to yield almost xs much enjoy ment as the movements in the field, if that were possible. The premiums will be paid on Monday in the repository of the American Institute. Mii.lkrism?Madness?Miskry.?A singular and somewhat painful scene took place yesterday after noon at the chapel of the second advent people, at the corner of Christie and Delancey streets. It ap pears, that during the past week, there have been prayer meetings held in thiri place, at which fe males principally attended, headed by a few " brothers" of the society. Yesterday, when they were in one of their most fervent prayers, and amidst the most pious respons s, there entered a stout, good looking man, in his shirt sleeves, cap on head, and with a most gloomy cast of counte nance, in which pity aud anger were strongly blended, who cast hta eyes around, and walking U| to about the centre of the building, laid his hano upon the shoulder of a respectable looking female, ?vho was on her knees sighing most piieously She turned up her countenance to him, and in ii might he seen ihe remains ot a most beautiful orea nre, evidently much w?rn by thought and anxiety The male p.irty desired her to rise and g> home, when after a moment's thought, t-h> irose, and was about to remonstrate with het listurber, when he in no very gentle manner, will his toot, pro|>el ed her forward, exclaiming " I find I must tench foil in h diHerent way of your lolly in leaving your infant ehildren and home to toi low this hnmbnggery to which she merely lifted her ryes upwards, and went towards the door Id 'be meanwhile *ome six or eight great liibberlv lazy fellows, who were on their knees beneath th? ?iilptt, got up and ro.?e their lianiJs and eyes hea "enward, exclaiming- " O Lord, how thy servant is punished lor thy sake ?" 0 L?>rd, open ihou Dm eyes to his wrong doing, and make him know thy presence is fast approaching," at the saute time not one of'them stepped forward to preveai my farther violence in case it was attempted. Bu he individual appeared to have gniiK-d his object, aud followed the |ein-?le ; imuiedint* ly afterward 4ome of the others casne out. exclaiming to anuui ber of persons around the door, " That man hat inst been kicking Ins wife out ol the House of tb? Lord," evidently with the intent of exciting thos< ? utside against the man. The first party alluded to immediately turned round and said, *' Yes, tnd 1 will kick every one of you that d?res interfere, from one end of the street to th? ?ither? fou vile set of impostera and scoun drels, who get a parcel of females around you thai you may fatten on what they bring you, to the ne <leOt of their children and their homes ;" at the mme time raising a fiat that evidently deterred 'hem from all farther interference on their parts. The man and wife, which it appeared they were, >roceeded together expostulating wi'h each other; <he praying the Lord to open his eyes to the awfu ?filiation he was in and he commanding Iter t< attend her home and her children, sxying, " I hav? iried every fair means possible with you, 1 mu? now try other means." It appeared that this pom creature bad been away fiom home evtry day fot the past week, or teu days at one place ot th? other at prayer meetings, preparing for " the great day," which the followers of Miller say is now so close at hand. Thia is a specimen of what every day is occurrinf amidst the deluded followers ol this ohailatan OurMM. [Correspondence of the Herald ] Jffain ?'? Otneral, and in Hayti in Particular.
