NEW YORK HERALD. IT?w Tork, Wednesday, October 30, 1144. , The Pi ixpri ti before u?. Iq a few dav* the Prvet'teniial question will be determined. Before the close of next week we ?hull nil probably koow who hi* been elected Pre sident of the United Staled?whoihrr Nlf Cfa'V 01 Mr. Polk. This is really a cheering prospect F >r six months past the country has been in a state of the greatest excitement. Tumult?bus'le ?agitation?passion?violence?blasphemy?vitu peration?slander?forgery ; all the disturbing ele ments of fierce political agitation have been at work on every side. All intelligent and patriotic men have been disgusted, and the country has been exhibited in such an attitude as justly to pru voke the sneers and ridicule of all 'foreigu civi lized nations. But the gratifying prospect is now before us of seeing, at the end of ten days, a com plete cessation of all this turmoil, and the com mencement of a period of three or four years of peace, prosperity and repose. It matters little which of the two candidates gains the triumph. It is highly probable that the House of Represent.} tives will be democratic, and the Senate'whig ; and whether Mr. Clay or Mr. Polk occupy the Presidential chair, is a matter of no sort ot conse quence so lar as regards the great intTests and progress of the country during the next three tr four years. This, then, is the prospect before us We are now iu the midst of the Red Sea; in a very few days to emerge from that turbulent ocean, once more to breathe the pure and bracing air of the wildernes ?not of sin?but of good times, plenty of trade, universal industry, and unexampled prosperity. Probably the next three years, before another Pre sidential election cornea round, will be the most prosperous period with which this country has ever yet been blessed. More fortunes will be made, greater advances in all the arts and refinements ??( civilisation will be gained, ai*-4 a larger amount ot general national happiness flow over the land, than many at this moment can imagine. Enterprise* beyond number, are now in the bud, awaiting the cessation of the present storm, to burst forth info wondrous life and energy. On all sides we shall behold the unexampled natural advantages of this great land, seized upon and employed with freth, untiring and successful zeal. It is a very fortunate thing for the whole population that the closeness of this contest will prevent Congress from interfering, in any ma terial way, with the interests of the country, by any injudicious or ridiculous legislation. We must have a tariff to raise revenue to pay the expenses of the government; and all, with the ex ception of a few abstractionists, are in favor of a good thumping tariff, to pay all that may be neces sary, and have eomething over. We do not wart abtnk, nor is there any probability that, should Mr. Clay be elected, there will be a bauk. The State Banks throughout the country conduct their affirs much better now than formerly, and we have no doubt will continue to do so, under the searching and vigilant surveilance of the press ? M anufac'ures are fl >urishing. The agriculture iuterest is fl .untitling, in spite of all the lamenta tions and absurdities of politicians, we verily be. lieve that the country was never more prosperous than] at this moment, and that when the vu - lence of political agitation subsides, and the public mind becomes righted, and morals, decency. a'id propriety resume their sway, this prosperity will increase an huudred fold during the next four years We shall then have time to devote our selves to the arts and sciences?to the improve ment ol industry?to the enlargement of our com merce?to the education of our youth, and to tht ejtabli-hing and beautifying of this great republic ?the home of outlawed liberty?the sanctuary r.f peiaeeuted religion?the gard-n of the world, and greatly favored heritage ot the free ! The Fhknch MbKTiNO this Evening ? F' r the fvst time since the patriotic Lafayette la?l acide the sword which earn?d such glory in the war of the American Revolution, the French citi zens of this country have now stepped forward in to the political arena, and announce a meeting at the corner of Lispenard street this evening, for the purpose of deliberating whether Mr. Clay or Mr. Polk is best entitled to their suffrages. This is another new element in the present contest, and it is one of no mean value and importance. The French adopted citizens number many thousand*, and their vole must exercise a powerful influence. As the probability is that most, if not all th? ?peeches and proceedings will be in the French languige, we shall send both French and Englieh reporters, and if possible, give a full account next morning. . War wrra Enoland ?The Courier # Enqutrtr has a number of extracts from various speakers, d> ? daring themselves in favor of Polk and Dallas, from which that journal endeavors to show, the.t shou'd the democratic party be successful, a w*r with England would in all probability ensue, from difficulties arising out of the Texas and Oregon questions. It is certainly very singular how these political editors, speakers, and writers, do contra dict themselves, and make every thing they s*y perfectly absurd. Here we have had the Cowrur laboring for a long time past to show the necessity of electing Mr. Clay, in order to sustain a high tariff policy, and thereby benefit the manufacturer* of this country. Very well. Thete is no objection to that view of the matter. But yet the Courier tails to see that by its own showing that if the elt c* tion of Mr. Polk was to bring about a war with England, that event would do more to beaetit the manufacturers of this country than all the high tariff's that ever could be enacted. A war between this country and England would throw the whole of the market into the hands ol American manufacturers, and therefore it is much more probable that the manufacturers, who sre looking ahead, are just as likely to vote for Mr Polk as for Mr. Clay, iu order to benefit their own industry. If forty, fifty, sixty, or any other per centage, by excluding foreign manufactures, is to benefit domestic industry and labor, it would cer tainly be much more beneficial to get up a war and exclude them altogether. Clasrnkss or tub Contest ?The following table will show the extreme closeness of the pre sent contest, as compared with that of 1840. In seven States, numbering over a million of voteis, thare is a difference of only about 4000. I?H. Prit't, IS40, S<et?e. m,it. D?n IVhi..

Amsrican Institute.?For a few days past w* have received a number of communications from different parties, complaining aad exposing the un> just ana partial way in which the premiums have been awarded at the close of the Fair last week ? It is not necessary tor tis to fill our columns wiif these complaints; were we to do ho we should not have room lor the general news of the day. These complaints occur every y^r, and they are treated l>y those who have the mis management of thes> matters with the m.aii in?ff?ble contempt. Thi> mas necessarily lead to the establishment of an ther institution that will be better conducted. N4 thmg else can remedy these evils; an institution in the hands of honorable men who will do their duty to 'the community, the country, snd them H. M. Noah and Um RdtonUW oftkt Jews. The lecture of M. M Noah, at the Tabernacle, on Monday evening la>t, waa the moat extraordi nary?the most unblushing?and the most insult ing attack on Christianity?that haa ever been at tempted. Without the slightest ceremoay, he strip,'ed the divine founder of the Christian faith of all claim!* to Godhead, and reduced him to a level with Joe Smith, or any other impostt-r Ti'e *tt? m,it haa, it ia true, been often made, to degTade the Savior of the world to a level with a mere hu man social retoimer, and thus to rob the Christian faitn ot its very essence?the source of all its omni potence and triumph?and the foundation of all the hopes of the Christian world for the last eighteen hundred years. But the attempts have, heretofore, at least in our day, been marked by some degree of ingenuity and some show of decency. The most rabid infidelity itself haa been of late obliged to conduct its attacks on the citadel ol Christianity with apparent philosophic calmness and sobriety But in the assault of M M. Noah there is as little delicacy as philosophy. The occasion selected for the attack?its whole style and manner, and the object sought to be gained by it?all discovered a contempt for the feelings of the Christian commu nity, a disregard of every principle of propriety, an absence of philosophic dignity or acumen, and a -illy and obtrusive egotism, alike reprehensible and characteristic of the man Let as briefly state the sum and substance of this ii>gular business. Stimulated by excessive v?in iy, and a fidgetty ambition to engage the public eye, an individual steps forward as the special ad vacate and deliverer of the Hebrew race, and sum mons the christian community to hear his iin I iiouncement of a project lor the restoration of that remarkable and interesting people to the land of ?heir fathers. He collectB a large audience, ana thus addre ses them:?"Christians, that Jesus whom you worship was an impostor?a humbug? tn impertinent fellow who, under the pretence of a mission from Heaven, created considerable popu lar tumult in Jerusalem and the land of Judea He was very properly arrested, tried, condemned, and put to death under the Jewish law. In this en lightened day he would in all probability have been more mercifully dealt with; but as it is, you are blindly adhering to a system of imposture. We are the descendants of the men who convicted and ex ecuted this impostor. We have unfortunately and unjustly been deprived of our ancient heritage. Will you have the goodness to aid usin regaining it! In return.we shall be very happy to give you a genuine creed and a respectable faith." Few educated minds, however deeply and unhappily prejudiced against Christianity, could have meditated sueh an assault; we doubt whether one other individual could be found able to attempt it. The history and condition of the Jews have always been subjects of great interest. "1 he re mote antiquity of the race?their occupying for so many ages such a conspicuous place in thejainals of the world,|in consequencel of th- ir superior civi lization and intelligence?their priesthood being made the depositories of revelations from heaven? I he appearance amongst them in fulfilment of the prophecies of their seers, of the Saviour of the world?the remarkable circumstances attendant on the establishment of the Christian faith on the ruins of Judaism?the destruction of the Holy city?tin dispersion of the tribes?theirisolated condition, am steiffast resistance to Christian civilization, ai t lese things have centred to give to the Jewish people surpassing interest. In every age since the destruction of Jerusalem, individuals have been springing up amongst the Jews, impressed with the idea that the time of deliveranc- had come, and that the return from the captivity was at hand, and t'rom the string and universal interest frit by Christians in the II brew race, the movements, declarations and projects of these men have al ways commanded great attention. The study ol 'he prophecies, relative to the Jews, and calcula tions relative to the commencement of the mille nuni, have always been pet subjects with the most popular of the Christian clergy, and equally the favorites of the peeple. Hence it was easy tor Mr. Noah to collect a large audience.? Christian curiosity *as anxious to hear what ? H- brew had to say on these matters. But as to the project of Mr. Noah itself, it was just the puerile, childish scheme to be expected from such a quarter. He does not rise from the level of Parson Miller. His " lecture" was con fused, contradictory, and powerless. He clearly discovered himself to be a man groping in the lark, rather than an intelligent, philosophic stu dent of the great subject which evidently lies e* far beyond his gra*p. He is still, it is quite plain, the same perhaps well intentioned, but childish and weak man, who made his appearance some years ago, on Grand Island, attired in habiliments bor rowed from the wardrobe of the Park theatre, and called on the Jews through nut the world to repair to that spot as a " city of refuge." That locality did indeed pos .^ess considerable advantages for the prosecution of contraband trade, but the project did not suc ceed. The only science from it, that we know ?f, was the beard ot the Prophet Matthias?for it is an historical fact that that imposing appendage to the chin of the impostor, and his revelation, both dated from the evacuation of Grand Island by Mr N?ah, with his trunk of calico and tinsel. Well then, the Grand Island scheme did not sue ceed, and now Mr. Noah makes another effort t< restore the ancient glories of his race. He bring 10 the tas* the same vulgar mind, the same low ambition, and the same narrow capacity, as of old Were Palestine offered to the Jews to-morrow would they return thither! We trow not. Chat ham street and Monmouth street will still resound with the classic click-click oi their peculiar traffic; industrious and early ris'iug men will still glid?* gently through the squares of large cities, uttering a Minds mysterious as they pass along?gilded ball-, will still mark the entrance to dim and dingy de positories of penury and vice?Rothchilds will stil lean against the pillar of the Slock Exchange, and inahap silly old men of antedeluvian lame, will still retail twaddle at 23 cents ahead till a mightier revolution than the world has yet known, shakes Christendom to its uttermost extremities, and give, indeed, to all men, Jew and Gentile, a new hea ??n and a new earth. That that day will come, who that understands aright the past and the pre sent, can denyl When, and how it will come, who can foretelil We have said somewhat more than we at first ntended of Mr Noah and his lecture, and perhaps more than the subject deserves. But we have done with it. His whole scheme is an absurdity?a pue nle?a weak absurdity. It is akin to that of the effort of the pains-taking ?? artist," who attempts, by scouring, steaming, washing and dying, to give to an old coat, picked up in Chatham street, the gloss and air of one just produced by the ast* and skill of Jennings in Broadway. Dkmocbatic Movements -The democratic gro cers of the city had a very Urge and enthusiastic meeting last night, for the purpose of making pre .arations for the gieat proeession. The " native lemocraU" hud also a spirited meeting. A full r? port of boih will be found in another column. I)i ctor Lakdwke-Dt Lardner intends to give a lecture on "the history and progress of the ai ts 'luring the present century." It will be the most interesting and instructive discourse delivered m t!ns city for a long time pust. The subject is one ?if great interest. The arts have made greater pro gress during ihe last twenty five years thau almost luring the preceding twenty.five centuries. Dt Lardner will illustrate this, and point out the in fluence thus exercised on civilization and human happiness and the advancement of the race. Commok Cotrncn..-It will be seen that the oard of Aldermen have commenced the ad? f tion of a Police Bill, and will continue it on Thursday evening. Stat* op tm City.?Great f?*ar? be fin to be entertained, by the moat respectable and quiet in habitants of rhis city, that the announced meetings, processions, dec., will lead to some violent out break, which will disgrace the character ol the city. There is some foundation for such fears ; but we hape and trust that the Mayor and other authorities will exert themselves to prevent such from taking f-Uce. If the different clubs and cliguet .are left.to themselves, there is every iikeii hood of an outbreak, such as would net only dis grace the city, but the country at large But there is a moral check to such?it is in the hands of the city authorities, backed by the well-disposed of the community The first movement that ia made to wardaan outbreak, at that moment must the Mayor and other authorities call to their aid the civil and military powers to pat it down, or else such scenes will disgrace our streets as have done those of Philadelphia within the last lew months. The in troduction of religious passions and feelings is more j likely to lead to disastrous consequences than any iliiim else; it therefore behoves every minister to advise his flock to observe with calmness every outbreak which this crisis ts likely to bring forth, and all will soon pass away. It is of far less mo meat who is President or member of Congress,than ttiat the city should be disgraced by a lawless mob. ! Courtesies or Politics.?We do occasionally meet with an incident which relieves in some degree the,asperities of political conflict, and casts a brilliant though fleeting radiance on the dark and troubled scene Of this pleasing character j was the scene at Naahville some weeks since,when the beautiful ladies of that city presented a very | splendid silk banner to' Mr. Gansevoort Melville <>f this city, on his return to the north, in token of their approbation of his zealous efforts in the cause of the democracy. This banner is a very elegant one chaste and beautiful as those from whose lair hands it came. On one side is emblazoned an eagle with a scroll, on which is inscribed?" The Home of the Hickories?to the Empire State: to Gansevoort Melville?from the Ladies of Ten nessee." On the reverse are the " Stars and Stripes" and the "Lone Star" of Texas. The possessor of such a gift is indeed a fortunate man. Arkanana Election. Wrm. Pern. Whig. Dm. , ? . Drew. Jiyrd. Gibson. V.

(officially bef ore the House, but has been referred to an investigation of three Bishops, who will be authorized to make a presentment againsi Bishop Onderdonk, if the charges are sufficiently I strong for the purpose. In the Courier & Enquirer it was stated that the I charge preferred against Bishop Onderdouk wat licentiousness; and we see in another paper, that the Bishop has joined issue upon the accusation, and will probably take measures to have an inves' ligation at once. As this movement involves a very important question of morula, affecting the standing of th. dignitaries tin the Episcopal Church, it will no doubt produce a great deal of talk and discussion -n the community.

There appears to be some mystifi cation in the classification of the politics of the candidates. In the Montreal Herald, a loyalist pa per, the members favorable to the policy of Sir Charles Metcalfe are set down as conservatives while in the Montreal Pilot, a bitter opposition journal, most of the so called conservatives and ae reral of the radical*, are styled reformers. We see that Papiueau is called a conservative in one plat and a lory m another, and La Fontaine a reformer und a radical. This may all mean the same thing. and it so, it is purely Canadian. At any rate, th. loyalists seem the strongest just now. Fashionable Movements ?Shopping in Broad way is considered among the elite of this city and neighborhood one of the most fashionable occupe tions ol the fair portion of the community on a fine day; and has been the means of giving to Broad way that fame which has spread throughout th. world. A new species of fashionable lounge ha* been introduced into this locality, namely?th. auction stores. A few days since, it may be recol lected, tliere was a very numerous and fashionable attendance at a sale of Ehawlg. Another jam e? these fashionables is likely t? take place, on a like occurrence, in a few days hence, at the large room of the Apollo, 410 Broadway, by Messrs. Ludlo* Ac Co , when a great sale of Broche Cashmert Shawls, of the most unique description is announ ced to take place, that has ever been offered,whii h i will doubtless bring the ladies out in great nam bers. At the recent sale some of a similar descrip tion sold tor five hundred dollars, and the same ar aold in the shops in Broadway f >r 800 to 1000 dol lira. All the articles thus sold are second hand having been previously worn by the princesses o" j of the blood royal in the East. Not only are the) ! second-hand, but ia many instances, thiro and fourth hand?no matter, whether they are or not tliey are none the worse for having graced th. shoulders ol Princess Hymluchinafa, beyond th temalaya Mountains, or even the shoulders ?f Queen Victoria herself.
