NEW YORK HERALD. New York, Moiul a> lh tubrr '4h, 1S44. HerntU S?ppUsti>t to City Subscribers. We give ojr city regular and resectable sub scribers?not the street buyers aud loafer purcha *?-? HERALD SUPPLEMENT to-day, in ad duiou to the regular edition, embracing all tbe news received by tlie (Sieat IVtUtm, published yesterday, with a variety of other lresh intelligence, far beyond what every other journal in New York can afford or give. We are enabled to go to the expense ot doing so, from the extraordinary patrosage and populari ty which the American people, throughout this wide Republic generously bestow on u fearleBs, honest, independent and truthtelling newspaper, bound to no t?arty, but above all parties. At this moment our circulation is equal, if not greater, th ui tiro thirdt of Ihe rokoie daily newipaper prtrg of Xrw York This great fact, aione, indicates the mighty intellectual and moral revolution now going on in th? public mind of this most wonder ful nation;?a nation?a people now in the first throes of a civilization, higher and holier?wider and deeper?more massive and mightier than the old wsrld ever imagined or knew. Tbe Foreign News* The foreign intelligence, in these precious co lumns, received by the Great fVettem yesterday, is ample and interesting. The account of the visit made by Louis Philippe to Queen Victoria at Windsor Castle is interesting and philosophical. It gives us an insight into the way in which the small coteriu of royal personages of Europe amuse themselves?while the mighty masses of the people, composed of the same flesh and blood, are starving aud dying in penury around thcin. There are also further particulars of the move, ments of the great pauper demagogue of Ireland, Din O'Connell?showing how he also is amusing hinruHf with his beagles on the mountains, while his dupes among the poor Irish people are running after him in bare legs and tattered breeches, hur raing till they are hoarse. We also give a very interesting account of a literary tnirit in Manchester in which Ben D'lara i'li, the Hebrew member of Parliament and littera tuer makes a splendid speech, that reminds us of the " Pelham" novels, or the wondrous life ol Alroy, the Prince of tha Captivity." It would seem that a variety ot the discordant political elements of Great Britain are uniting and combining against the Peel ministry?the Irish re pealers- the English leaguers and radicals?Young England and New ScotUnd (alias the free kirk, God s>tve the mark !) are all coming from various quarters to form one combination against Sir Robert Peel, who must go to the wall sooner or later. On the whole, money is plentier?trade is bet ter--the taxes are increasing?the rich getting richer and poor poorer?and this is the sum of the foreign news. Pkace op the City at the Ensuing Election. ?We have every reason to believe that His Honor the M*yor, has made ample preparation to preserve t'ifl peace of the city from all riotous and disorder ly e.itiusi ists, growing out of the extreme political exeitenent of the present time, and that he has t iken all due precaution to put down any attempt thai c;litis or factions may make, to destroy the p-Mce of the city. lu the fint place, the militia and the watch are all powerfully organized, so that ihey will be ready In lull force, at one moment's warning, to proceed to any pall > f the city ; and if the municipal force be not suflioieut to quell any attempt at riot, arrangements have been made to call forth the military at once, provided with ball cartridg", and all necessary equipments in sufficient quantity to enforce immediate obedience. We should not at all be surprized, if 1500 in fantry belonging to the volunteer companies, and ->00 horse, have all received their secret orders to be ready, upon half an hour's notice, at a precon certed signal from the City Hall, during the ensil ing election, and until after the result be de termined. And if any attempt should be made by any organized club, band or faction?either Irish, locofoco, whig or native, we trust that His Honor will act like a second Napoleon, and put down t very attempt to disturb the peace of the city at the point of the bayonet, and the potent efficacy of powder and hall, at once. The reputation of this country has been so much injured throughout the civilized world, by the im becile and criminal weakness displayed by the au thorities of Philadelphia, that nothing now but the most energetic measures, and the utmost determi nation on the part of those of New York, can avert the fre^h disgrace that would follow an in fraction of the peace of this city, and place the principles and excellence of republican government in a proper light before the civilized world. Our public character is at stake, and we trust it shall be set right, vindicated and preserved. Important prom Bitenos Ayres.?The Chancel lor, from Buenos Ayres, brings advices to the 23d of August, four days later than before received. On tbe 21st the ship John N. Gosler, of Phila delphia, arrived off Montevideo and was immedi ately seized by the Buenos Ayrean squadron. In formation of this fact was at once sent to the (J S. ship Boston, which vessel went in pursuit of the fl?et Nothing had been heard of the re-capture of the Gosler when the C. sailed. Tins is certainly a curious affair. It is a bold movement at all events for the Buenos Ayreans to feize a foreign vessel thus summarily. Mors News prom the n?-xt steamer due. and may be expected later intelligence. Eitrope ?The Hiberma is She is now out nine days on Friday with eight days Elections in Canada.?The conservatives seem to be carrying all bt fore them in Canada. In the Upper Province every member elected is a conser ? itive. In the Lower Province, the majority nre radicals, and of doubtfnl politics. So far, 18 con servatives, 8 radicals, and 3 doubtful members are chosen. While the two provinces are thus politi cally divided, the perpetuity of the union is a mat ter of great doubt.

The sun dbi shone faintly out, for a brief interval, at an earb hour, but like a strong man suddenly seized with a lazy fit, on the prospect of a *' bud job," he had quietly given up the conflict with the thick heavy t?>g* that came in the train of the chill east wind, and the city quietly r< signed itselt to the visitation of a wet 3aud.y. So, with a sigh, the new bon net was laid aside, and the elegant silk dress, just brought home that morning, was again consigned to the wardrobe, instead of being the envy and ad miration of the whole church. By and by the greut black clouds that had beenhurryiog over the city, like spirits of evil hastening to some scene of conflict, burst forth, and the rain came down in torrents. The streets were quite deserted, except that here and there a shabby looking man might be seen hurrying to the nearest grog-shop, or a doctor's wagon, with i s leather covering care fully adjusted, drove rapidly along tl*e broken pave ments. Every thing looked so melancholy ! The d itk unrl lowering heavens?the funereal aspect < t the Htore?j with dosed doors aud windows tlu signboards soiled and weatherbeaten here urn! t i*re an awiiivg torn from the posts, and flapping backward mid forward in the wind?the streets fi led with large peals of muddy water?and then " it was Sunday!'' Sad reflection for the. idle, the ttioughilew", the prolane, and all those who have not that '? within" which ever can &H>>rd enjoy ment, and who are obliged to seek in the daily bustle, and show, and tumult, and busintss, and dissipation of the world, the means of what they call' happiness!" But the bells of an hundred churches tolled the hour of prayer, and summoned a great city to the house of God. Nor was the summons disobeyed. Religion is "respectable," and there are hearts that have been touched with the living tire. Despite, then, of the storm, hundreds and hundreds poured forth into the streets, in all quarters of the city, and the temples, dedicated to religion?great and small?stately and humble?the elegant and costly structures, where wealth and fashion assemble, and the small wooden buildings where the poor and needy worship? were all well filled when the bells ceased chiming. And so from all went up the so lemn voice of prayer; and the saint and the blas phemer?the godly and the ptofane?the penitent and the Pharisee?sin and sorrow, pride and shame, peace and anguish, hope and despair, guilt aud purity, all knelt together at the altar, and ihe lis tening an^elsj carried up to Heaven the strangely mingled orison. There was an unusual thronging at the entrance io St. Thomas'. Every pew was filled, but still the crowd kept pouring in. The galleries were densely crowded. Even the seats occupied by the choir were encroached on by the increasing multi tude, Not a vacant spot could be found in the aisles. It was evident that something of more than ordinary interest had attractid the crowded audience in that house of prayer. 1 he countenances of all?young and old?wore that air, so readily recognized, which told of anti cipated "new excitement" of some description. The congregation had not the regular, orthodox, stereotyped, resigned, dead, Sunday countenance. Yon could discover lile and animation. If was a fashionable church, and yet it seemed positively free from ennui. What could b6 the matter"! What was to happen! Presently the door in the chancel opened, and a tall, dark, earnebt-lookiug man, with stern, but placid features, and in the prime of life, attired in the simple and appropriate clerical robes, prescribed by the Episcopal church, entered, and slowly ascended to the desk. His Hiipe iranee -at once created a singular movement throughout the church. There was a great rust ling of silks?a waving movement in the aisles, as f those at the door were eagerly pressing nearer? a sudden rising up of many in the pews?a stretch ing forward of fair necks, so that bright eyas, where curiosity and awe seemed strangely blended, might c?tch a glimpse of him who had entered? and a suppressed, but audible whispering?" In that he!" "Is that Dr. Hawks!' "Y?>8?hush.' "How pale lie looks!" " Dear me." "Lovely man!" " What a sweet expression! " Heavenly !'r "Hush?hush?the service begins!" The service commenced. Loud, deep, and full the solemn notes of the organ pealed throughout ihe edifice, and as the choir rose and joined their voices in the sacred anthem, the " loud acclaim" of praise seemed to hush every unholy aspiration, and all, the gay and the devout, appeared to unite in attention to the impressive ritual of the church The music ceased and there was a solemn pause. Then the minister at the desk kneeled, and in slow ly uttered, emphatic tones, repeated the prescribed form of prayer. It was a scene to stir.the heart. What a world, invisible to alCbut One, was that which lay spread out beyond that curtain of forma' devotion! Hearts at peace with God and man, heat side by side, with those beleaguered by a thousand fiends! There was young and blooming purity, looking on the same page, with the cold, callous, hardened woman of the world. Hoary headed men, with consciences long since seared as with a hot iron, bent in outward devotion?in the same pew, with youth who had just taken the first step to the sides of the pit, and now alarm* d for the moment, started back, affrighted from the fearful'future. Faith, hypocrisy, crime, truth, youth and age knelt together and called aloud?"God be merciful to up, miseiable sinner* !" And yet it was a curious study to mark the difference in the re sponses. Some of the old could be Been with in stinctive earnestness to clasp their hands and utter a more than usually audible "amen," at every lefer ence in the prayer to the eternity which they felt to be near ; whilst amonast the younger worship pers you could observe those in whom the suppli cations for forgiveness?for mercy?for grace to live better and nigher God?appeared to awaken a .equivocal emotion. Then there were those that seemed cold, immoveable and impassive as the carved roof above them?but who can judge the hearts of men 1?rather let us hope that there were many there who did indeed kneel in the spirit of the publican who stood afar of! from the temple, and did not dare so much as lift his eyes to heaven, but unto whom was vouchsafed the message of joy unbpeakeable ! But we must go on with the services. Let ua Kive ? ? The Prayer.

Then said Jesus unto Uim Lxcept ye aei- signs and wonders ye will not believe. Tnis nu '?leuian saith unto him, Sir, come down ere my child ie Jesus Miih unto him, Oo thy way. thy son liveth And ? he man believed the word that Jesus bad spoken unto uim, and be went bis way. And as he wax now going down, his servants met him, and told him, saying, I'h> son liveth.

' " Thou shall have no olhtr (rod hefort me "?fcxodus XX. 3 This is the coinmandniant with which Jehavah intro duced that body of liws so solemnly announced amid the thunder a:.J smoke of Binai.

I' was fit 1 say, that his supremacy should b ? placed first as the leading article in that case of prescribed la-v lor the moral government of hu manity. There waa besides one additional reason for in troducing i? in this way. The p< cu iar si'tia ion of tt.e lews, surrounded as they were by heathen nations, wor shipping the gods ot their own hand*, subjected them more particularly to the dHUger of imitation 4m d the prevalence of polytheism, the danger ol idolatry was in creased, therefore are they solemnly reminded thHt the) can acknowledge no god but Hun who had brought them out ol tho land ?f Kgy pt and out ol the house ol bondage. There is, however, in tills, km in nil the o hur communicu lion* oi Heaven to man and in a'l'a Commandments -there is a spirituality which extends its application to our times. We should greatly err in supposing ?hat this law derives its sanction above from the peculiar state of those to whom it was originally ad lresFtd. True, we aro not subjected to the tempta tion ot ^prostrating ourselves bi lore of wood or ol stone. Thanks be to God, our hearts revolt at the ilea of worshipping the lights of Heaven, or of deifyinp '.he productions of nature But there is an idolatry Irom which christian times und people are not entirely exempt It matters little what the object may be which is elevated above God. The (election of any thing aided to the grjssness of matter, may, indeed, demou wrate excessive stupidity in our idolatry; but th'j selection ol .my thing short of God himself- the selection of any thing less ex alted in Ita nature, would indicate no lesa of idolatry, though It may perchance somewhat lew of stupid ity. Now there is a Ikrge amount of practical heathenism in Christianity. For, whatever is loved, trusted, feared, served more than God Is loved, tru?t?'d, teared and served, becomes an idol But there are other po nts of view, in which it is my object to aho w that thin commandment is not inapplicab:e to ourselves It embodiet certain great principles,which no change of time can ever alter, h?cause they reault Irom the relaave position otthe creator and the created. They are built upon the nature of God, and the character of man, and until that day comes which shall usher in a new heaven and a new ?*arth for the habitation of righteousness, they tuust ol course continue to be unalterablo. The first great truth on which I would fix your thoughts is, that this command necessarily implies that man shall have a God. In other word*, that he shall not be without a system of religion. Jehovsh, then, has here emphatically declarel that religion of some kind is requl site, nay,(ii necessary to the coiistitution. to the very nature of man And how ramm kably bas the experience of the world attested the truth of this declaration ! W'heie hus the nation yet been found entirely destitute ol any system of religious belief ! I am not taying tba' th> system has been always ight, nor is it necessary for m> argument that it should be so ; but I speak of u fact uni ve sally prevalent ui demonstrative of this great truth that the instinctive longings of man's heart seek some object of worship, and that this furnishes cumulative evidence of the declaration ol the Almighty?that religion is suited to the nature of man. But there is another consideration resulting from this great prin ciple which is worthy of our especial note. It God has thus declared that man shall have a system of religious bel ef, I ask in what light r-hmll he be viewed who ventures to light against God, and who pro tests that he will have none? And this tiiquiry leads Dit to the consideration of a very common error You are aware thu'msny ol our fellow m:n regard it as quite ?piional wi li th.-mseivea to be religious ur tho revcri>e It is an entire mistake on their parts to suppose any such right oi choice. God hns imposed upon them the obli gation by a posltivffcommaud to avow themselves to tie of some religion, nor can they possibly excuse them selves by the plea ol neutrality. On this subj :ct I can magine them to rest on ground having the ap (>earaiice of plntisib lily, but when examined, even that appearance must vanish It may be said, and inn i? the ^r^tlnd to which I allud,, 'hat inasmuch as <Jod imposed a pen ilty for the dis obedience of eve^y injuuc iou, that u? tef re he gives ?very individual the option of obuy ing the ommand, oi of suffering the pen iltv. nn ' "i ?t ron<-quenth tloiiglit to do the one o the o her is tthe cho ca oi the indivHua , iS incontesiible; that he, therelure, who lelUies tu hav? iny religio i inn>, Indeed, act unwisely, hut he pays for his right to do so by suit ring the penalty. Now ttus. r. asouing is ut'arly fallacious It is built upon the notion or I cannot call it the thought?it is built upon tbt no-ion that the object ol annexing a penalty t? a law i* to presen to the governed an alternative for their choice. If thi- was true, legislation were an idle occupation, acn. enactments would present the ridiculous absurdity of for bidding aud permitting the same thing at the very same time But again, if this doctrine of commutation lie c-ui rec', what is to prevent the mass of mankind irom v ola ting the enactment by paying the penalty 7 In that case, need I say, the halls ot legislation woul.i become but an office to barter for a premium to b ? paid the right to com mit wickedne s with impunity. 1 deny, therefore, abs> lu'ely and tincor ditionallj, the right f any man to be relig>ous or irreligious as may seem best to him sell; and he who conteuds lor such a right, little thinlcs 1 of the exten: to which he goes, lie would -hrink In hortor from the consequences of his taUe position, for he is making God Almighty himseli the win inter ol sm. He is enlisting Jehovah himself unonthi aide, of iniquity, for is he not represented as willing u> prescribe terms to the perpetrators of a wickedness lo which his infinite purity?if he be pure?must revolt? Na , if this view be correct, the man who holds it has actually stricken God a 'mighty Irom ex.steuee, for if tin der any circumstauces this God can joek ou am with tin least degree of allowance he ceases -to the ratio, ai mind he ?t once ceases to be God. This then is the conclusion to which he is brought who supposes himself at liberty to receive or to reject rel gi n. The?e are don elusions which you perceive are alike dishono rable to God and ruinous to himself But l pro ceed to a second general truth implied in this i.ecla ration of our Creator Not only aie we, as rational and accountable b ungs indebted to heaven for every thing w possess ?not only are we laid under an obligation to etn b-ace some system of religion, but that system must pas khsi as one ot its distinctive leatuics?unity. "7 Aou limit have no other Gods he/ore mt " Man ahsll have but on--creed?one system ol religious laith ; and if wisdom and truth bo the characteristics of Jehovah, this matter v,>?i will perceive could not he order d otherwise. It is impossible that God could give tie world two s> stems of leligior.?two Gospels?two Christs ; because truth must ever bo but one. A single object of religious worship is, therefore, indispvnsible; and it is alike reasonable n>id righ'et.tu, that he.uho made ai.d|amtains us, shall have tac hearts the whole hearts of men Divided affec ion must beget divided allegiance, ?n I divi led allegiance is a dratli blow to sovereignty. Unity in religion is, therefore, the command ot heaveD. There if, ilso, benevolence in this appointmei.t; for, by cieatitg i common interest in man, it aonduccs to harmony. It is true, indeed, that the wickedness of man has, in some degree, as we know, defeated this arrangement of infinit love, and that d.versity of religious opinion has furntuhecl .abundaut topics for the scoffer's sneers But the abuse by man ol the blessings of heaven,!- no argnmerv against the existence and value of the hUsaings themselves?nay. the truth is, it ts alilUhes both : for wu e there no bless ings there could be uv such thing as abuse.

In Kingston, Mr. A. N Brown, pnoliuher and printer, has become entirely ineane. His brother, carried away by the delu sion, has given up every thing like work, believ ing it to be clinging to this world's things. A few days Hince he waa about hauling nt load of corn from his fields, when, seized suddenly wiih the shove idea, he fell upon his knees and prayed to God to direct him how to act?whether to carry ihe c< rn to the barn or leave it in the field?trie decision waa in favor of the latter course, and it was accordingly dropped tor the benefit of the ca'tle. The believer* of the pernicious doctrine in that section, generally, have almost entirely neglected to provide for future want*?apples are rotting on the trees, and crops in the fi-lds remain unharvested. In Newington, likewise, the fanaticism has made alarming pro gress. We have yet to learn how far the expira lion of the Miller " chronology" goes towards restoring these deluded people to their reason.

New York and tlarlem Hall road?Opening (fWlUU Plain*. A train of cars ytarted from the City Hall, on Saturday, at on* ofclock, conveying the Harlem Railway (Company, and a large number of their friends, who were invited as guests, to celebrate the ojtening of that section of the road lying be tween Tue 1KB and White Plains. This road now extends as far as twenty-three miles from New York ; and, as it has been prosperous to an unusual degree for the last nine months, it is ex pected thata still increased traffic will warrant the Company to carry it still iarther out into the inte rior. As far as the work is concerned, the road is solidly and well made; the iron used being the double H, and all other materials corresponding in quality. It was twenty minutes past three when the train arrived at White Plains, where its arri ved was greeted by the loud and hearty cheers of a large number of people who had assembled to welcome the strangers, a feu de joie of several rounds of artillery being added thereto. About 3.'K) persons from New Vork were present, which, added to nearly half as many more, who joined them at White Plains, swelled the company to a goodly size. At half past three, Jack Dawning, famous for his skill in such matters, announced the tidings that dinner was ready, which summons was most promptly attended to. Ample accommodations were provided for fully three hundred, in a new building, which, although not exactly erected lor a dining saloon, served the purpose remarkably well. It is not because I" eaten bread is soon forgotten," that we torbear to praise the viands, but because they did not require praise; and for this reason, also, that most persons can form a perfect idea of what a good dinner is, without any description. David Banks, the President of the Railroad Company, took the chair, which was placed at the centre of a cross table at the upper end of the room. On either hand we observed Chancellor Wallworth, Judge Oakley,and several members of the Common Csancil of New York. Mr. George Hall proposed the health of the Pre sident and directors of the New York and Harlem Rail Road Company. (Three cheers for David Banks.) The President returned thanks, and said that the Company Mere entitled to share the praise which they bestowed upon him. After a few other observations of the usual kind, h? said he would submit a few remarks,drawn up by himself, on the affairs of the railroad, and trusted they would ac cept it (is a substitute for a speech. (Loud cheers ) The President proceeded with the reading of his report; it reviewed the movements of the compa ny from us origin in 1831; alluded to the obsta cles and opposition they had encountered, aud ended with an encouraging representation of their present slate and future prospects. He stated thai they had increased their horses and thejr cars; that they intended to take up all the old flat iroi and put the double H rail in its place. The road from Williams' Bridge to White, Plains cost $150, 000; th" receipts for the last nine months amount ed to'$109,000, which was an increase of $4000 over the previous season, and th?* receipts ol the whole year might be taken at $145,0Q0, and that over a road *>f only fourteen miles extent?(loud cheers)?and he bad no doubt thet the road as u ?Hands would afford a revenue of $220 000; a sum uot only sufficient to defray all expenses, bnt to pay the debts of the company in three years?(loud cheur)? and should they think of extending it north to the Heusatonic railroad in Connecticut, or westward towards Albany, they could do si; without necomiflg indebted for a single farthing The President was loudly cheered, and ended by giving the health of * The Chancellor of the Great State of New Vork?The uniform an4 steadfast Iriend of raiirofads.

Mr. Ferris returned thanks, but we could no', ilthougl- within ten feet of him, hear the half 01 his remarks, such a cabal was kept up all over he room, the Prwident vainly calling out " Order, ?rder," and rapping the table to induce the bois terous to be quiet.

Notwithstanding that, it was hall-past nine when the cars stopped at the Oity Hall, leaving nothing, certainly, to be said for th? speed on this line ot railroad.

Providence may realize the sanguine expectation* of the New York and Harlem Railroad Company, but the| speed of their trains never will, at to-day's rate of locomotion Such proceedings as those ot Saturday, are anything but creditable to persons making any pretension to be called business men. Grrat Storm.?'The wind which had been blow ing easterly for the last two days, suddenly veered round to the south,last night, about twelve o'clock. Hid shortly afterwards increased to a gale, and continued to blow south southwest til! daylight this morning. The water in the harbor rose about tour feet, and swept from the' mooring about thirty or forty small vessels, including wood boats, pleasure ?til boat**, (See , which lie beached on Point Frede rick, Belle's Island,&c The schooner Lady Bagol came into port during the storm, draggad her an chors, and now lift) ashore at the eaut end of Cata raqm bridge; st??s is loaded with flour, but willsuf fer little damage. The wind has unroofed portion? of houses and sheds, levelled fences, uprooted and broken many large trees, destroyed a great deal of window glass, &c., Acc , in the town, and we have no doubt the devastation has been much more ex tensive in the country.

Stkam Communication.?We rejoice most hear tily to learn that a project is in serious contempla tion to bu.ld tour iron steamers, to run between this port and New York, at au estimated expense of $110,000 each. This is truly an enterprize wor thy of support, and we trust will be carried out, as the voyage would be made in six days, which is two days in advance of the mail. We nave heard of one public-spirited citizen, who, when the pro jee.t whs mentioned to him, put down his name lor #20,000 dollars. This is an example worthy of im itation; and as our information says that the mer chants of New York have subscribed one-halt of the capital necessary, *e trust that 'he remainder will be (urnifh?d by th<' mercantile community here, whoso interests will be so much promoted by the scheme^ing carried out.
