New York., Sunday , UcMmber 1, IH4. Steamship Cal*?onia is due tu-au?row at Bos ton She will bring hail a raonih later, new* Irom Europe Stat* of tlM Country and Political Prospect? Nothing,perhaps, can be pointed ?ut as affording a better practical demonstration of the Military workings of the institutions ol this country than that presented in the universal peace .quiet and har mony which have followed immediately upon the termination of a political contest of unexampled violence and intensity. The country i? now in a state of perfect repose. Every vestige of the re cent conflict has disappeared Without the ? lg est disturbance of the peace-without a soliuxy liot-without the smallest incident to alarm the most timid spectator-the people of a great empire, divided into two wrong and powerful political par ties, and operated upon by a Variety of "citing elements, have peacefully gone to the polls and selected their rulers One party has achieved a great triumph, and the other has been covered with defeat. Yet peace, unbroken, universal peace, prevails. Amongst the politicians, however, there is a great deal of commotion and agitation. Ihe diquti of the democracy, released from the tem porary bonds of union and brotherhood, the as sumption of which were so absolutely necessary in order to ensure their success in the late conflict, now occupy their former position, and are laboring with a degree of activity more easily imagined than described, to promote their own individual purposes. The "spoils"-extended in long and niost inviting array?are spread out before the eyes of the victors, and each clique is moving heaveu and eaitli to gain pod?e?ion of the President, and thereby secure the lion's share. The two great divisions of the northern find southern "sections"?the former headed by Mr. Van Buren,and the latter by John C. Calhoun?are now threatened by a third, with its nucleus in Pennsylvania. By the judicious distribution of the government patronage, the Tyler administration have managed to secure a stronger influence in Philadelphia, and throughout the State ef Pennsyl vania, than in any other quarter, and the effort made by this clique to retain office will be prodigi ous, and is much more likely to be attended with success than that of the same clique in New York. The announcement of the contemplated visit ol the President-elect to Philadelphia, previous to his in auguration, has excited a great deal of remark amongst the politicians, it is, indeed, a significant fact. Altogether the prospect of repose for Mr. Polk i? not very encouraging. With a powerful opposition, and such a complexity of interests in his own party, the next President has eveiy rea son to anticipate a very stormy and perilous term of office. It is difficult at present to form any positive con jecture relative to the turn which political affairs arr likely to take. Congress meets on Monday next, and the President's message, with the open ing proceedings ol the session,will doubtless throw some light on the very interesting position in which public affairs are at present placed. We have made the best arrangements for giving the earliest and most interesting reports of all the doings at Washington, so that public anxiety may be grati fied to the fullest extent. Our independent posi tion, occupying the high vantage ground ol perfect neutrality, will enable us to give Buch reports, mid make such devrlopements of all the proceedings, moveitienta and counier-tnovements at Washing ton, as none of ihe mere tools of faction and the cliques can give, or would dare to give it they could. Notwithstanding the turmoil amongst the politi cians?the intrigues of the democratic cliquet, and the general mist that hangs over the future, we may rest satisfied that the great measures of the nnnexation of Texas?the acquisition of the Ore gon?the cautious and judicious modification ol the tariff?the reduction of the postage?and the extension of our commerce with foreign nations, by means of mutually advantageous commercial treaties?will,in all human probability be carried in to effect under the coming administration. The fac tions may. qliarrel about the "s|>oils," but the great destiny of this nation is onward, and the condi tion of political affairs will be such for the next four years, that it will be able to fulfil, for that time at least, its destiny. The present complexion of the general government is such that th?* superior wisdom and intelligence of the natou must direct its legislation. Neither party have ii in their power to carry ultru party measures. All that is wanted is peace, security, and repose, and the less legislation the better, in order to have a vigorous developement of all the abundant elements of national greatness and prosperity with which this mighty country is blessed. Prison Reform?There is some talk about the organization of a "Prison Association in this city. A meeting for that purpose, m to be held at the Appollo on the 6th inst. There is certainly great necessity for the adoption, by benevolent and good citizens, of measures for obtaining a reform of prison discipline in this city. But this it onl> one branch of that police reform which is bo im peratively demanded. The whole system of po lice in this city, from top to bottom, is rotten, cor rupt, and lull of abuses, and must be entirely re modelled before we can hope for any salutary and adequate reform of any department. A vast amount of the vice and crime which disgrace the community, owes its srign to the abominable sys tem of police, and administration of criminal jus tice. We have, lor years, called out for relorm, and it appears we are as far from it as ever. President Tyj.er's Message.?We are informed by.the Post Master of this city, that the Post Mas ter General will despatch the message by express as soon as delivered. It is expected that it will leave Washington at 12 noon, on Tuesday, and arrive here the same night at 11 P. M. Pouch Reports ? Mr. Brady, in the course of a speech in a recent case ol slauder, remarked that the papers in giving police reports were re sponsible for the publication of ex parte statements. In all cases where the report is made as the mere transcript of the proceedings of the Police Court, the paper incurs no risk. It would be a different matter, were the statement adopted by the paper as its own. Some of the pettifogging lawyers have tested this question to their cost. Literary Discovery.?Tne Courier has just dis covered that the splendid essay on the "Sublime and Beautiful," by Burke, contains "exceptionable passages," marred by "indelicaciesof thought and expression." This is indeed a discovery which could only have been made by the refined, dignified and chaste critics of the political gamblers' organ. There is really now some hope tor the oyster-ceUur lUeriUi of the Sunday papers. Amvsinq.?To hear publishers who have circu lated Sue's and Bulwer's novels in thousands and tens of thousands, talk of pruning Burke's essay on the "Sublime and Beautiful," and cutting out tlie "exceptionable passages." Horace Greeley's Last E ithusiasm ?The "water curt*" is the newest favorite idea of Philo sopher Greeley. He lias gone into it with oiiarac '.ermtic seal, and Vinceni Pries?niiz now occupies t niche aide by side with Charles Fourier. Navigation ?We have mild weather again, and tie Hudson will therefore, probably, remain open a little while longer. Lono Island Tunnel.?'The Long Island Rail road Tunnel is now completed. The train Irom Boston came through it lor the first time onThurs evening. ABMvarcirr PNtlnl if <Im H Andrew^ Yesterday being the day'dedicated to St. An drew, the patron Saint of Scotland, the St. An drew'* Society of thia city, eosuineuloraied ita re turn with the usual festive observanoss The din ner w<u served at tlw City Hotel. At aix o'clock,t the houi appointed, about a hundred gentlemen of this association, and their guests, sat down to in elegant banquet, which the season&bleness of the hour allowed full leisure to discuss and enjoy in the true style of Scotch sociableness; and although there were a few blank seats at the table, there was not discernable a single interruption or chasm in the link of good feeling and enjoyment, which prevailed throughout the whole company. Mr. Irvine, President of the St.Andrew's Society, occupied the Chair. On hia right aat Mayor Harper; the President of the St. George's Society ; the President of the German Society ; the Presi dent of the New England Society; Rev. Dr. Stark. On hia left we observed the British Consul; ihe President of the St. Patrick Society; the President of the Knickerbocker Society ; the Chaplaiu, Rev. Mr. M'Leod ; Mr. Kennedy : Mr. Maxwell : Mr. Campbell, Secretary. Mr. Norrie acted as Vice President. When the cloth was removed the Chaplain re turned thauks and no* nobit domint, was sung by the '"hoir, after which .The PKaMDK.vr arose and instructed them to fill for the first regular toast. He observed that another year had pastaway. and they were again privileged to assemble under the auspices of their venerauie Society, to interchange *uh each other the greet ing of fnend* and brothers, to commemorate the land of iheir fathers, of their youth, of their iiffuciious. And it was lupMCfae least gratifying part of of their proceelitigs that day ihat they were able to congratulate each other en the prosperny ol their tJtceWnt society, which, uu ?er ltd present management, has been as successful as could be desired During the past year its sup porting ar.u had bttuextenueu to hundreds of their unfortunate countrymen; their wants were tup plied ; their spirits cheered; their stei* directed by trieudly counsel to new and sure paths ol success ful enterprise and honest industry. Nor had the sick been neglected; relief had been administered to them by the skill of their excellent physician, and the bed-Bide of the afflicted had been soothed nud ^lightened by the religious consolation af forded by their zealous chaplain, and founded upon that laith for which their fathers bled and con tended with such heroic courage. It wua impossi ble to contemplate the utility of their society, with out a feeling of gratitude towards those excellent Scotchmen who founded ii, in a spirit so congenial with the character of their native land ; it was for them to continue its exertions and extend iu usefulness. He would ask permission to again con gratulate them ou the return of their time-honored anni versary, associated as It was with io many old remem brance's, which do not require to be walfned, lor they rise spontaneous in the bosom of every Scotchman, in every part of the earth 'in which their ? nterprizo has. spread them; and it was a cheering reflection that wher ever there wai a Scotchman on t..e broad face ol earth'* surfaco, on each return ol thi? day he dediicate* it to his country; unfurl* the banner ot St. Andrew, and pays a lieartlel. tribute of respect to the country ot hia father*. Ger.tlemeu, I give you ? ??The day uid ull who bom ?. H."? (Applause.) When the cheering and applause had subsided the President again rose, and made auother very appropriate address by way ot inttoduction to the second regular toast, which was? "The Land O'Cakes.'? (Tremendous cheering and every demonstration of delight.") The third toast followed in rapid succession, and was? "The Land we live lnM?(Loud cheering ahd all the honors )?Hail Columbia by the Choir. The Psksidcnt announced th3 fourth toast: called for full bumper*, and sail that it wa* generally believed that the rtign ol Queen Victoria was to lorm a very remarka ble era in the history ot the British Empire?(cheers)?it was the case with her female predecessors who occupied that throne; but how different the character of their | reign*! Those ol the past were allied to violence, to : toice, to the right ot might; whilst that of Victoria is | the triumph ot moral forco, of humanity and justice. It was imposiit.la net to see, also, in her elevation above the pomp a. ,d prid.! ot royalty, her asuduous attention to hei social and domestic duties her suavity and condeicen-ion, tlio surest signs that she waa a worthy Queen, because a good woman ; and he was sure that he spoke the senti ments ot every Scottish heart, when l.e expressed a deep and sincere wish, that she might live long to promote the happiness ol, and set a bright example by her life to her sutijects. (Cheers.) Gentlemen, I give you, '? The Queen?God bless her." (Applause.) Music by the choir?" Gad save the Queen." At this part of the proceedings, Mr. H. Phillips, the famous vocalist, entered and took a seat at the table, and wus received by warm marks ol welcome und respect. Puesidknt?Fill your glares for the next toast. I give you? The President of the United States. (Warm a^glause, which continued for several minitfs,folio wed thia toast .) The next was? *? Tho immortal memories of Wallace and Bruce. (Drank in silence ) Pat.siDENT -We are row about to drink a toast which will surely be received by you in a suitable manner?it U in honor ol the Empire City ol the Empire State, whose Chief Magistrate honors us with his presence to-night.? Let us drink? The City of New York, and his Honor the Mayor.? (Very warm applause) Music?"Mynheer Von Donk." Mayor Harpck responded in a short buthumorons man ner, which told right well upon the audience He would, bftuie ull else, infoim tliim that ho waa not accustomed lo speak in public, nor to meetings like that; but his anti cipations were more than realizes on becoming acquain ted with the sons ol St. Andrew on that occasion. He never cultivated eloquenco. Yet he could recollect that nearly thirty year* ago,when hia father?a most excellent father he was?lived on Long Island, he had some thought of becoming a lawyer?he would observe here that law yers then were not what they are now.; (Laughter.) Hia lather said he thought there were more lawyers than could g>t an honest living (Laughter) He thought then of becoming a doctor?but doctors tl.en were not what they are now. (Laughter.) But his la ther said he would Hx him out in life, and ao put him to bu a printer. H? quoted an old aaying that " an 'idle head wis the Devil's workshop,"and so arranged it that lie had him to work 18 hours a day Since thai time, however, the people had nn .e him their Chief Magistrate, auJ seemed to think IS hours a day too little for him t > work (Laughter.) He would net,however, (occupy their time further, seeing as he did, some six or scveu gentle men, all ready to make a speech, each of from hali|an hour to an hour, and lull as many who were prepared|to sing songs ; he would give them the following sentiment iu conclusion: ' The ('heritable Society of St. Andrew's: No bubbling rivulet betraying itself with ita noise, but a full deep stream, bearing on its hosom comfort and assistance to the afR.cted und indigent! (Applause.) PricsiDkmt?Gentlemen, now ler the next toast. Are you read j ? ?' The Parish Schools of Scotland." Scotch song by Mr. Croskie?" Here's to the land O' Bonnets B''j" '? Ninth toast? The Representative ot the Bntiah Government in thia country, and our friend andgueit?the British Conaul. Tho Const i. returned thanks in a short speech, in which he nsid a high tribute of respect to the Scotch na tion, concluding by saying that he would be proud to be thought halt a Scotchman ; but that iu which he most gloried was, that their common countries, formerly ri vals and enemies, are now united for ever into one ? (Cheers) He gave? "The sympathies of Britons?may they continue to flow, with every pulsation ol their hearta." (Applause ) Tenth toast? Scottish story and Scottish song. Song by Mr Phillips?" The gloomy night is gathering fasi." The Pkksidknt in a brief manner prefaced the next toast, which was? '? Our sister charitable societies, and their representa tives, our worthy guests " Tne PaKsiniiN-r of the St. George's Society re sponded, and save? " TV liott and Hit 7kittle."?His honest roughness will resent ihe hand that would plnck a leaf fram the boaom of his sister. Iutertwined- may they flourish fn the strength ol beauty lor ever. The Prrsii>knt ol the St. Patrick's Society, fol lowed, and gavi? " The Capital of Scotland."? It stands unrivalled in its memories ol the past?its beauties of the present?its nolde chsrities arid splendid architecture The f'KkPiDi.vr of the German Society followed, uid proposed? ?'7*e Indutlry, Prudtnce und Pertrveranee af the Sro rh " ?Lei the worm imitate their example, and Charity may go a begging (Cheers ) 'Ihe President of the New England Association mada a good speech, and off. >ed as a aemiaient: The free i hutch Presbyterians of Scotland?May the A1 nighty God multiply and peipetuate such races of men on the fsce of the earth The Pre* dent ot the St. David's Society, after making iosih amuung observations, gave : Weel ti ed datfit? the reward and encouragement ol honest industry. (Cheers.) The President of tha St. Nicholas Society also spoke. Hts sentiment was: The (Jolted Statea and the United Kingdom?the two great empires ot the world?naturally allied by blood, in -rdentallf by intereat- May each always think that tha (sin < f ihe one eannot be the loss ot the other. The President gave tfce twelfth regular toast, which was in honor of " All good Liu>stes"?but the precis, words we did not get. Th- 13:h aud last toast from the Chair, was as follows? " May care and trouble never faih, But mirth aud joy be wi' us a'." Several capital volunteer toasts followed, and the leniivity was kept up t<ll almost " the auld kirk nammer struck the twal," and certainly on no oc casion ol the kind was more Bocial and friendly leeltag, inure good humor and merriment, than ou tins. All thiH was a good deal promoted certainly, !>y the pleasant s|ieecheM and the musical per tormaiices, particularly those by Mr. H. Phillips, who met a reception as warm and hearty u could be possibly shown. Alkatf ft?i MnaUi 'I*1 ""i';'?g". f'X Albany, Not. 29,1844. Cloting of Navigation?Polit ical Affair*?" Ytt or or Nom a day or two Dftut. Sin:? Navigation is about closed?the Columbia and Swallow have literally pushed their way up this morning, ud expect to leave at IS M. In addition to the cold weather, which haa been severe, we have had a fall of about 8 inches of snow, which has already breught forth numberless sleighs, in the matter of which Albany is very jostly celebra ted. In my last I neglected, amongst the names of the candidates lor elerkship ol the* Assembly, to name Freeborn G. Jewett, ex-member of Congress, ol Munroe county, and Mr. W.tles, of Troy, ex-clerk. The contest will be betweeil Jewett and Rose. Chancellor Walworth has gone to Washington, it is presumed to see about the seat on the bench of tne Supreme Court. In the event of his appoint ment,the next anxious inquiry is, who will be Chan cellor 1 If Gov. Bouck makes the appointment, it will be Chief Justice Ntlson> if Gov. Wright, the Chief will share the chances with Mr. Paige, late Senator, and for many years Reporter of the Court ol Chancery, and Mr. Assistant Vice Chancellor Sandford, ot your city. If Chiet Justice Nelson gives up, there will be two vacancies on the bench of the Supreme Court,** Mr. Justice Bronson will, it is said, soon resign on accouut of his continued bad health He is a learned and capable Judge, and one whose place will be with difficulty sup plied. Judges Gndley and Willard are on tne qui vive for the succession. As there are now two vacancies in the U. S. Senate, Gov. Wright and Gov. Tallmadge both having resigned, the party leaders, great ami small, are in a terrible way. Mr. Foster, President pro ttm. of the State Senate, has gone t? Washington, doubtless with an appointment from Gov. Bouck in his pocket; and it iu rumored thalex-Governor ex-Senator Marcy will soon tellow suit. These appointments are, however, only temporary?the Legislature electing the Senators in February Here will be another great contest; Col. Young, Gen. Dix, C. C. Canibrelling, Got Dickinson, Gov. ivlsrcy, Mr. Foster, Admiral Koflman, and Gen. Barker, (Attorney General), beiog in the field. I may prove a bad prophet, but 1 will make a prediction, that if Messrs. Hodman and Barker are candidates, they will beat the field by a long odds. In my last, 1 closed in Buch haste, that I neglect ed to say, that we have a well built and commo dious Amphitheatre nere, and at present there is *aid to be an excellent company?Utto Motty is the star, with a number of leaser lightr, The Mu seum Saloon, under the management of Mr. Rice of the Buffalo Theatre, is also said to have an ex cellent stock company, with Charles Howard as a star; and what is more to the managers, both are doing a good business, as I am informed, my en gaxeincntq preventing me from visiting them. You have doubtless seen the account ol an at tack of the ludians, or Anti-renters, on Judge Liv ingston, and the subsequent attack upon the Indians by tiir Sheriff of Schoharie Co. Two Ami's,who were injured, were taken ; but discharged on 9600 bail. One ot them, residing in the town ot Berne, in this county, has since died of injuries received on his head, by the po*se<i. Yours, dec. Hamilton. New and Remarkable Mbnaoerie ?A very curious menagerie has been opened at 149 Fulton street and 1 j Ann street. It contains some animals never seen in tliis pountry, and additions are to be made to it as soon as possible. There is also a ring attached to it, in which is seen the jaoveispec tacle of a Lapland poney ridden by a Borneo ou rang outang, dressed and riding like a veteran cir cus rider. A camel from Mount Sinai, is also there, on which children and ladies can ride, after tbe manner of the Jewish ladies when travelling through the wilderness. It is a most pleasing and instruc tive exhibition, and all parents should take their families there. The charge is only 121 cent*; the place is well warmed, ventilated, and the separate *7trance for ladies is at 149 Fulton street,next door to Cool-idge Ss Cutter's drug store. Foot RacA?It will be seen by the advertise ment in another column, that there is to be a race for $1,000, of twelve miles, to take place on the Beacon Course, Hoboken, .on the lith inst. The principal competitors will, most probably, be Green halgh and Gildersl^Ve, the lattef being now convenient to the course, in severe train ing. This will be a hard and'most doubtful strug gle, as it is well known that Gildersleeve was out of condition at the last race. The frtendsof Steep rock, the Indian, refuse to have him run again this fall. ' Service of Plate.?The passengers on board the Royal steamer Britannia, on her late voyage from Liverpool to Boston, were so highly gratified with the conduct of Capt. Hewitt, during a very boisterous voyage, that they voted him a piece of plate. The plate was iMirchased in this city, and three days since forwarded to Boston. Captain Hewitt leaves again for England, this noon. Still at it.?The Albany Argui is still work ing away at the effort of explaining the cause of the extraordinory dircrepancy between the vote m this State for Mr. Polk and that for Mr. Wright. It is labor lost. The matter has been finally settled in the public mind. DO* Hon. J. M. Purdv, from Chenango ciuy, Hon. Julius Rockwcll, frcm Pittsfidd, Senator A. S.
