NE W YORK HERALD. Iltui IIUp Caledonia Thie ship wu due at Button yesterday. We may receiva her newa thia morning. Great Motibi?iIi of tike A|? In RcImmk, Phi* laaoptiy and IUll|ian. The Message will be here sometime to-day, and a great deal of anxiety will be removed, and a great deal of conjectnre thrown to the winds. So we may let our minds be at ease. A few hours will give us the "document." In the brief breath ing space thus afforded us this morning, we think we may not unprotitably occupy ourselves in taking u glance at the present condition and luture proa pects ot sundry great scientific, philosophical and religious movements ol the age. This country is the great field ot ultraisrn in every matter of opi nion. New sciences?new systems of philosophy ?new revelations from heaven?are given to us every year. At present we are tolerably well sup plied with all these matters, and the prospect ot an addition to the stock,and an increased development of all the elements already evolved, is certainly as encouraging as the most earnest lover of novelties can reasonably desire. Robert Owen, the great patriarch of the system of " Socialism" as it is called, who arrived in this country, as our readers will recollect, iu the course of the last autumn, is expected to spend the winter at Washington, and during the succeeding summer he will travel over the States, expouuding and vin dicating his grand project for the re-organization of society, and the introduction ot a golden age, when the lion and the lamb shall lay down lovingly to gether, man to forget how to cheat his neighbor; and the whole earth re-echo with the voice of joy and gladness, froin the rising of the sun till the going down of the Bnme. Mr Owen is a remarkable man. Unlike the vast majority ot ultra social reformers, he is actuated by the purest motives. His benevolence and philanthropy are not tor a moment to be called in question. He hus sacrificed a large fortune in the attempt to estab lish his system ol society. With what buccibb he may meet in Washington we do not pretend to conjecture. We know very well that that city pre sents a very interesting field of labor to the reform er. Hut we are very much inclined to think that Mr. Owen will had the soil somewhat stubborn. In the Slates he will likely be more successful.? We should not be at all surprised if he would obtain numerous disciples, anxious to assist him in the work of promulgating his system, by retailiog it, as old Mr. Noah does his funny project for the restoration of the Jews, at twenty-five cents a head. It is a prevailing characteristic ot all these n ? w movements in this country, that the apostles never forget the first principles of utilitarian philo ? >phy. The new science?the new philosophy the new system ?f society?the new revelation from heaveu, are all like the wares of the fellow, who, " in a country town, Most musically critxi' razors' up and down"? ??"made to sell." And as Mr. Greeley has bo completely mo nopolized the traffic in the French "eo cialism," in his " Tribune" it may certainiy be expected that Mr. Owen's system will be eagerly seized upon by many promising and enterprising inquirers after the truth throughout the States. A great revival of F*iurierism may now be look ed for. Albert Brisbane is expected to return in a short time from Paris, and after his arrival he will Biart with fresh energy and zeal on his mission. He has laid iu a large stock of newjiniormation, rela tive to the best mode of carrying into effect the great hen-coop organization of society. Mr. Bris bane is also a raiher remarkable young man. He cume to us some years ago, and very zealously la bored for our conversion to his views, but not succeeding he turned his attention to Horace Greeley, who was jiut then looking out for a new idea in philosophy, und in him he found a very docile disciple. Horace, with all the zeal which characterizes young converts gree dily imbibed the instructions of the Apostle, and the seed sown in that congenial soil, soon ri pened to a very goodly harvest, which the readers ot the Tribunt have had the felicity to reap. Now that the country is saved, and Horace is not under the necessity of making calculations for which he only got abused by the ungrateful Whigs?who are, it would appear, as difficult to please as the poor devil under the fldggelations of the Irish drummer, whose playful remarks on the occasion are tecord ed by Joe Miller; for when we told them that they should not be too sure of electing Mr. Clay they found fault with us, and when poor Mr. Greeley toli them that they vere quite certain of elect ing their favorite, and proved it by infallible figur ing, they were equally abusive towards him?now, we say, he can return to his first love, and pull in the traces with brother Brisbane, with greater vigor than ever. And, indeed, Horace has already began to make good preparations for the approach ing campaign. He has announced in his lost pros pectus, that he has secured the services of an emi nent transcendental philosopher, and a distin guished Swedenbwrgian, who has sounded the very depths of German mysticism. With a press at their command, and tried aud experienced labo rers itinerating throughout the whole extent of the vineyard, we need therefore entertain no doubt that during the corning season Fourierism will make considerable progress. The in errsting community established on the banks of the ptclureiqae Skene uleles Like,are, as we enabled <>ur readers a chop tune since to judge, in a progressve ?*>', ?u<J the other associations we have reaaoa ? fcelievr from the last accounts, are in aa ??, ly encour aging condition. Mormonism is just now in rather a df , ng con dition. The death of the "Prophet" ha* beeu a sad blow to this new religion. ia threat ened with speedy decay. According to the latest accounts, considerable numbers were departing from the " holy city," und others would gUdly follow ii they could That the gio.-?est licentious ness aud immorality had existed in the community, no oue can doubt. '1 he isolated attempts ot Sidney Kigd^n, Winchester, and a few others, to re-ot gaaise the imposture, are not likelv to succeed. None of them appear to have succeeded to the mamle of their departed leader. It wouid appear that the "National Radical Reformers" have also experienced a diminution cf strength aud vigor. We have of late heard little ot their movements. Mr. Parke Godwin has been recently making an effort to resuscitate this move ment, but apparently with very indifferent success. The great prosperity and abundance with which the working classes ate blessed in this land of sue cesslul industry, constitute a serious impedim* nt to the growth and progress of such a discontented, revMu'.ionary system aslthdt proposed by these re formers. The manufacturing districts of England and Scotland, where immense mastes of men are constantly on the brink of starvation, and amongst whom hunger and thirst and nakedn< w stalk daily, present a more inviting field of action tor such spirits. And indeed we believe moat work ol the leudera in ?thia movement came over to this country from the districts just mentioned, and otter a brief experiment discovered that men who have plei.ty to eat, are not easily moved to rebel ugainat their employers. It u therefore likely that these " reformers" will not be much heard o' in this region herealter. The " anti-renters,'* however, will keep some of their doctrinee before the people, and continue to give a practical exhi bition ol their working, uutil a little more comtnoi. B*!nse and wtjll-directed firmneus, be employed, b) the authorized expounders of the elementary prin ciples of social order aud the lawn. A variety of minor movements, which were lost right of in the dust and tumult of the Presidential conflict,will now rapidly recover thtir former liveli ness, and go on with fresh spirit Amongst these ?? Mesmerism, Neurology, and the" water-cure orate (rreeley baa taken up the latter with great *eal, tad there la Already aome talk of eatabliahing an inatitution in thia city for the practical exempli fixation oi the amazing curative effects of the hy dropathic treatment. We are inclined to believe, however, that the auceeaaful exhibition of the value of cold waier will continue to be monopolized by tha Temperance Society. But beside* ah theae old ?for they are already "old"?movements, we may expect many othera, now, wilder and more ex travagant than any thai have yet appeared. Dis covery?novelty?progress-excitement, will be Un order ot the day. All sorts of ultraisms in Bcienoe ?in philosophy?in religion?in politics?in every subject that can occupy the human mind, may be expected Quackery?lanaticiam?imposition?ex travagance of opinion?will shew themselves ou all hands. And what will this discover 1 Why that th" 8rea' work of human progress goes on pros perously?that the spirit of free inquiry is abroad. That is not the most hopeful age in which the great popular mina lies dormant, inactive, sluggishly reposing in the past. All these wild vagaries of enthusiasm?all these extravagant theories of fa naticism?all these ultraisms of opinion,?only evince the restless, inquiring, advancing spirit of the age. Wisdom and sober intelligence still maintain their sway. The ultraisms of a day are silenced in a day. The hundred babbling brooks, which, in the s;ring time, make the quiet hills re echo their mimic roar, are dry and silent in the summer; but the mighty river still fl>ws on in majesty, spreading fertility throughout the plains, und bearing to the ocean the tribute of a nation's wealth. The Greatest Discovery of the Age.?One of the organs ol Mayor Harper and his associates in the corporation, announced a discovery yesterday, for which it must be immortalized. It has just foun I out that the reason why the streets cannoi be kept clean, and are in such an abominable condi tion, is because there are so many "foreigners" in the city ? So long as any of these " nasty slinking reptiles" are allowed to remain in the city, the "organ" avers that the streets must remain load ed with filth ! The question is settled for ever. Correspondence.?We have received a commu nication from a French gentleman now in this city, and whose word is altogether worthy of credence, relative to an allusion, which he con-iders referred to him in the letter of our Texian correspondent, published in the Herald, of Sunday last. He denies stoutly that he ever, in the Texian prairies, knew what it was to fear Indians, flocks of deer, bears, or mustangs, or that he unfurled the flig of "La Grande IVation" as a precaution towards his per Bonal safety. As very few will be willing to go to the trouble of reiterating the ambiguous allusion ol our Texian corresnondent, as no name is mention ed, and, lastly, ns it is of no earthly importance to any individual on this aide of the Sabine river?we do not thin* it necessary to publish the disclaimer ol the French gentleman, thinking it sufficient to admit his assertion that he is not the man, and, therefore, if any such ever existed, it must be some other person?of course. Great Massacre of the Small-Beer Litera Pd'k Benjamin has got back to the editorial chair ot the New World, and has already began to amuse himself with his tomahawk amongst the small-beer literati, who retail the poetry of the green-room and the parlors at th* fashionable ho tels. As for the oyster-cellar literati of the Sun day papers, they are in such a state of excitement and controversy as to which of them is to furnish the age with a Dr. Johnson, or Spectator Pot-house Steele, that ihey will probably eventually devour one another, in aome one of the groggeries where they obtain the material wherewith to tickle the ears of all the barbers,?and invoke the muses, who are be in these regions, a "long nine." M. M. Noah at tub Tabeknaclk.?There wa a tolerably good house at the Tabernacle las, night to hear M. M. Noah read hislectnre a second time. There were very few Jews preaent. The seed of Abraham won't even hear Mr. Noah talk about the "restoration." The lecture seemed flat enough last night, and the old gentleman himself looked flat and melancholy too. Housatonic Rodte for Albany.?Livingston, Wella and Pomeroy's Express now goes to Alba ny over the Housatonic Railroad, via Bridgeport; leaving this city in the morning, and arriving at Albany early in the evening. Corporation Plate.?We perceive that a mo tion was made and adopted last evening in the Board of Aldermen, for the sale of the Corporation Plate. Will it be sold by " private contract 1" There are reasons for asking. We pause for a re ply j United States Senators ?On Saturday after noon, Governor Bouck appointed Henry A. Foster, L nited States Senator, to supply the vacancy occa sioned by the resignation of Silas Wright; and Daniel S. Dickinson to supply the vacancy occa sioned by the resignation of N. P. Tallmadge. Italian Opera.?A very crowded and fashionable house witnessed last night the first representation this season of the eplendid opera of Belimirio. Bor ghese, as " Irene," fairly excelled herself. Her exquisite singing and her admirable acting made her personation of the character peifect. Pico, as "Antonini," was worthy ol all commendaiion. Signor Tomasi, the new bauo, met a very favora ble reception. He is a fine singer, but we do not think that his performance was, in all respects, e |ual to that of Valtellina in the same character Perozzi was, aa healwyas ia, excellent. The ap plause war, throughout very warm,?decidedly more frequent and enthuaiastic than we had heard on any fonner occasion. Scottish Song ?It will be seen from a card in another column, that Mr. Clirehugh is shout to give a aeries of lectures on Scottish Son*, with i! lustrations. We have no doubt that these enter tainments will be among the most pleaatng and popular of any of the kind yet attempted in th;e city. Mr. Clirehugh ia a man of fine musical taste, and few can appreciate and illustrate better than himself the minstrelBey of his native land. The Weather.?We had a glorious day yester day?the air clearand bracing?the s inshinc warm and joyous?The ladies more enchanting than ever. But the prosy, lazy, lumbering party papers were more intolerably dull than usual. The only thing lively and interesting in this inspiriting weather are the ladies and the Herald. Master Sconcia's Concert ? This wonderful youth sives his concert to-night at the Tabernacle. He created quite a sensation nt Miss Brnmson't concert, by whom he will be assisted on this occasion. He will also have the aid of Signora Kicci, who is highly spoken of, and who made a very favorable impression on- her appearance at the Piiilhurmomc Society's Conceit a week or two ago. Altogether thia entertainment will be very luteresting and attractive. Hotels in Washington ?Mr. Coleman ia like ly to be the greatest reformer in Wmhington thia season. Hia hotel, the " National," is a model ol perfection in that department of human industry, intellect and science ; which waa very much need ed in that city, and ia already duly appreciated. Query.?In front of a cabinet-maker's atore in Broadway, a table was Been yesterday, with a label attached to it, bearing the inscription, "Cnevaliei WiK<'fl 'a table." What does this mean 1 Steam Ship Britannia left Boston on Sundaj for Halifax and Liverpool, with forty passengers and her usual mails. All the mails from the south arrived in season, and no ba?rk mails were due when she sailed. The Miracles of the " Saints." A Blind Butcher Restored to Sight by Touch ing St. Stephens' Thigh-bone. Luther afflicted with a sort of St. Vitus' Dance, A WORD TO HIR/U3 KETOHUM, A LECTURE, Delivered In Mt< Peter'* Church, on Simdajr Evtnliif, Dee. let, 1844. By the Rev. C. Pise, D.D. Text But continut thou in the thirty which thou hint Itarn id and halt been atturid of knowing of wham thou halt Uariud thtm ?2nd Timothy, iidchupUr, 14'h vers*. The exhortation addressed by the Apostle to Timothy, is spoken to the ministers of the Church iu nil ages. Its solemn warning comes to me and to all my brethern who minister at the altar. We are bound to hold the truth, aud trausmit it with the strictest fidelity to remotest generation*. Among the dogmas which we are thus to teach aud guard with the most zealous care, is that of the invocation of the suiots. In the loriner pari ol my argumeut in support of this digma, I have proved that the practice of invoking the Saints was prevalent from the days of the Apostles. It is necessary in proceeding to another branch ot the argumeut, to remove every doubt and obscurity which may exist in limint. The Church does not absolutely oblige the faithful, under the penalty ol being regarded as heretics, to pray to the Suints. But the Church has merely decided, that to pray to the saints is a useful and salutary act ol devotion. Again, the Church does not pres cribe to what saint you shall, and to what saint you shall not, pray. You may pray to all the just in heaven?rot only to a canonized saint ?not merely to a personage who has been placed on the register of saints, and exhibited as a model for your imitation-but the church teaches you that with the same propriety you may ofI?r up your prayer to your mother in heaven, to your brother, your wile, your husband, your Iriend, your child? and that they, it they be in heaven, can hear and aid you. What a beautiful, consolatory, and sub lime doctrine is this! It is what is meant in the Apostles' (ireed by 44 the Communion of Saints."? Lest mine might regard me as not rigid enough in my doctrine, I will cite in vindication of my view,the words of one of the best modern authori ties in the church?the Bishop of Stiatzburgh? 44 The Council of Trent" says this great divine and standard author, 41 doeB not teach that it is neces sary, but simply, that it is good and useful to in voke the saints. It does not impose upon us as a general precept, to invoke them, but merely e?ta blishes the utility of praying to them; but he who does not invoke them is not therefore a heretic."?This then is the explanation of this tenet by oue of the best authorities in the Church I have already/appealed to leading fathers in the Church, and cited other individual opinions; I will now call them into convocation, and utk them what ihey declare on thisdogina. I call then upon the Council of Nice, where three hundred bishops assembled, and the Council of Caloedon, where six hundred biahops assembled. First 1 call upon the Council ot Nice. When I mention that Council, I mention a Council whose authority is respected and admitted by Christians ot the prerent day, of almost every denomination?by the Lutherans, by the Calvinists, and certainly by the Church of England, which has incorporated in her creed the very doctrines adapted by this Council?the 44 Ni neine creed " This Council convened in th'e 4th ccntury, and was the lirst General Council, not taking into consideration the Council at Jerusa lem, held by the Apostles themselves. The spirit ot the Council of Nice was to vindicate the divi nity of Jesus Christ against the Aruns, who called it in question. It assembled at theiiiy ot Nice, and was convoked by the authority of Sylvester, with the approbation of Constantine the great. Three hundred Bishops attended, of whom one ot tin most venerable was St. Cyril, of Alexandria, the Patriarch of that city. After they had decided the great question of the divinity ol Christ, St. Cyril arose in the midst of those venerable -personages, aud appealing to ihe Holy Evangelist St. John, has left upon record a testimony, not to be cal.ed in question, to the propriety of invoking the biunts, and which wns agreed to, and concurred in by all the Bishops assembled in that great council. These are his words-.?44 Open this mystery, Holy Evan gelist ! Tell us something grand and sublime !? You who are called the Son of Thunder, commis sioned to send the truth throughout the world, see this assembly?this multitude Ol persons con voked to seek truth from the well ot life?eu able us to draw trom it alter your example, or ra ther conduct us to your own spring!" Thus we find St. Cyril addressing this solemn prayer to the evangelist?calling on him to assist in revealing the doctrine which they had met to establisn Now how could this great Bishop have invoked St. John, if St. John could not hear hitn 1 How could he have invoked St John, it ,o invoke him had n?t been a useful and salutary practice of the universal church 1 How could he have invoked htm, if to do so were superstitious and idolatrous 1 Were those who had just met to viudicate the di vinity ot Christ, likely to fall into idolatry ! Were those who had vindicated the prerogatives ot the only mediator likely to derogate from his merits 1 Thus,theo,we have ihe example of St. Cyril,to prove that this practice is useful and salutary, and not at all superstitious. But to slr?ugthcn this argument iu the minds of those belonging to oilier denomina tions, I will call upon John Calvin. Even he ad mits the authority of the Council of Nice?he ad nuts that it was held in the "goldeu days ot Chris tianity," und recognises thestatemenisand decrees of that assemblage. 44 These ancient synods," he says, 44 of Nice, Ephesus, Calcedon, and other such, assembled to c ?mbai errors, I will.ngly em brace."? Jnttilvlet, Book iv. ell 9. Unless, then, the uuthoruy of the Council of Nice, be set alto gether aside, we inutt believe that u indicated the dogma of invoking the saints. 1 come now to the Council ot Calcedon, at which six hundred bishops attended, lu their midot there was also oue, who arose, and thus prayad to a saint: 44 The mariyr lives after his death?may tne Father pray for us!" Calvin and all his followers, il ihey be contistem, must admit the authority also of this council. Now I would, with all possible respect, p.ace on one side a certain convention, held in the city of Phi (adelphia, und on the other side the venerable councils _ot Nice and Calcedon; and whiie one hurls the thunderbolt of auathema against the church, the others approve of the docinne, am: therulore .condemn the inelets and innocuous ana them i l appeal again liom that decision ano sentence to th? ihree huntlted bishops of Nice, and Si* bunded bimop* ol Galcdou .Tae oue was belu a the " g.tideu days ot < hristiaiut;," tho other in cui day. I am *u>lained by thti cou*ciu ol' the primitive time* of Chiistidiiity, and what caie I then il I i>e >.o incautiously condemned an g nlty ut leadii g all who heir m? into idolatry 1 I pas. no?v Irom a. cieu' Koine?from Kgvp? liom Syria?Irom (Jro?c??to Eng land, aud lluil myself there among.: the Abgio-Mazoht ih-: ancestry tf many who now inhubit ihe now world ui ? hi* late period.

It may appear to some, that the whole l.ibric ot my previoun argument will be upset by r< earring to such proof a* that which 1 am now ubout tu submit. But all I ask is to be hcaid fully, ingenuously, <1i-passionately ; and alter tLO argument is concluded, it may not be regarded as so ridiculous in the I9:h century tor a in an to have recourse to Miasci.t:* in order to prove pi ay in;j to the saint*.

So when I hear of mira clea wrought by the ttawu, 1 eoqiUM?I ask tot the testi mony?I ask for the witueaata ?and when they are forth coming, I have no alternative but to believe My reason has nothing to do with it,if in such e caae 1 were to depend on reason Woe ia me!

Do you admit tbe suthonty of at Augustine? Well, he saya that "the relic oi St Stephen has wrought li teral miracles " [St Augustine in " Gilt of God," II. XXII, Ch. S.J Waa St. Auguatind deceived 7 Did he hiuiself mean to deceive uk 7 Wus he a credulous man 7 Waa he not one ol' the most enlightened?one of the best critics, as well as one ot the ablest philosopbeis of auv period of the church I Here, theu, you have a philosophic man, endowed with extraordinary virtue, possessed of wondciful per ?picu<ty, writing in u book which has been recom menced as u muster piece in ''very point of view, that miraclea did occur utmost within his own view and were believed by all the people. 11 so, there in certainly, great ground?there is, 1 would say, indisputable ground offered on which to establish the tiuth for which Icon teud. And, therefore, it these miracles were wrought, they were wrought by the Saint, and consequently go to show tiiut, beyond all doubt, the efficacy oi prayer to the Saint. I would not have recouise to this mode ol ar gument if this rested on less respectable authority?an duthority respected by all our separated brethren. This rests on an authority admitted by Calvin?by Luther?all Protestant*. Kither.then, St. Augustine was an impostor, wished to deceive us, and there was no lather in the church?uo orscle of rel gion , or, St. Auguitino has told wdfit really occurred. But all admit that St. Augustine was no iuipo?lor?that be was too wise to be deceived ? Therefore, I conclude that the nitrides weie wrought At lea .t I am not to be reputed an ignoramus. I cannot be regarded as au unwise man lor believing u statement made upou the authority of such an erucle a* St. Augus tine. But there if, also, the authority ol St Ambrose, the instructor ol St. Augui'ine. lie tells us that when the relics of Certain mariyia were cairied Irom one place to another, a blind man recovered bit sight miraculously. Now, when 1 read this, 1 might exclaim ' this ia lancilul" ?'?toil ia ridiculous"?"ihia is absurd!" But do yon suppuse that St. would be guilty of fancy, ol abturdity f He was the Cicero of the church Hia authon ty is oi ihe highest and purest character amongst ell de nominations, tor he lived in that age which Calv n de nominated the "golden age of Christianity." When i; whs rumored abroad that this blind man recovered his sight, thu Arians unanimously dec land that it was false ?mat no such thing had occurred. But in the midst oi all the outciies hear St. Ambiose. He arose and thus ad dressed ihe multitude ''Tliey deny that the blind man wus restored to sight, but he himseil doea not deny that he ha* be--n cured He say a that he was blind,but ihat now he sees His name is ,by prufersiun a butcher, lieprofessea tu have touched the linen w hich covered the sacred relics, and that his sigiu was immediately restored to him." [Great aenaation throughout the Church ] Now is not tnia enough/ Was St Ambore a aimpleton?a weak ere dulous man ? Waa ho au individual who could be im posed upon by apparent facta which never existed I On the contrary, the evidence is the stronger when we finu thut he takes upon himinif to vindicate the fact, whilst the Arians only contradicttd it. Such ure tbe proofs <1 the tru h of this practic.) It may be all very well to talk of the duik agea of the world of the wonderful light that dawned upon the human mind when Luthei appeared. This ia very pretty eloquence, if you will, loi a tentival speech against the Catholic luith. But let us appeal to Martin Luther himaelt, and .1 we And that after hia sep .ration Irom the Church he still adhered to the truth that miruclta had been wrought by Ihe aainta, why, then, these who revere the authority of Luther may add this to their creed. The original journal now before me, ia thua translated " Who can deny [alter he became a relormer] but that God at this very >.ay wotka miraclea by the aainta, at their tombs and in preaonce ot their relics?miraclea which appear m the ey> a of all tht world I" Therefore, if the Catholic ia a poor deludes creature for believing in miraclea?not in prtte.ntkd mi racles, which we diacard?but ia real miracl. i, be it so. But remember that Martin Luther must be regarded in the aame light, for ho also believed In them. Calvin,who ridicul a the saints, at the aame time admita that for 1300 years it was customary to invoke them Well, then, I would certainly rather follow the example of the Chris tiana ol 1300 yeara, than the aolitary example ot Caivin ! Again : hear thu language of Mart n Luther, in hia aer monou thu Festival of St. John Ihe Baptist" Some one cf ton might ask, ol what uae the aainta can be to you? Make the same use of thvm as you would ot your neigh bors. Yom say to them, pi ay to God lor me. You aay to

them as you say to St. Peter, pray for me ! You do not sin by not asking them to pray for you, neither do you ain by oaking them." Thua, 1 may remark, hevery nicely vindicatea kimaell, both when he did and when he did no*t invoke them?he waa aure never to do wrong. [Murnier ol aatisfaction in the church.] 1 have tliu* gone through the argument. In conclualon. 1 would beg uioae who un dertake to diapute the truths of our doctiinea, to take those doctrinea aa we announce and hold them, and let the ignorant and profane beware. When a aecuiar orator, especially, assumes to leave the arena ot hia profession, whether it be politics or law. and plungea into the midst ot theological disputation, be ought to remember the fate of that individual who dared to stretch forth hia uncousc crated hand and grasp the sacred censor..

[Torrei pond erica of the Herald.j Sandy Hook, Dec. 1st, 1844. The people at Balize are in ecstasy with the idea of their government "at home" taking the "heir to the crown" of the Motquiio Indiana under their particular cate. The education of hia father, the present chief, has been thrown away upon him, as he has relapsed iu\o that vagabondism so natural to an Indian; but the boy they are in the hopes ot making something of?he is now at E.tton school preparing for Oxford. Queen Victoria has adopted him as her brother, anU he lies next in her affec tions to the beloved Albert, and no doubt it will be the greatest wish ot her heart to have the young gentleman by and by crowned King ot Motquitos in due form. Provisions are scarce at Balize. Mess beef ?40, prune #10. No pork in market. Flour #12 Hay wanted. I would caution all shipmasters going to Balize, Honduras, against a notorious rascal who will seek to sell or hire lor the purpos* ot taking an advan tage on the eve of your departure, which, if not submitted to, will at least detain your vessel. Yours, sincerely, John U. Noyes. [Correspondence of tlie Herald. ] Balize, Honduras, Nov. 7, I&44. It i3 a pleasure, and I esteem it a great privilege to be numbered among your numerous coneapon dentw, and it I can give you any information of our settlement which you may deem worthy ol publication, my ends will be answered. The Uni ted States have but a limited trade with up, but probably as much as our market will admit of? Provisions and flour are now scarce, and the first vessels that arrive with a cargo will do well, but two <>r three cargoes would glut our market, there !ore I would not advise a large shipment, as it might lead to loss and disappointment. The sum rner and autumn, until two or three weeks past, have been uncommonly dry, consequently the river has been too low for rafts to pats the fl ub, but within a few days we have had several large rafts of mahogany arrive from the interior, which adds a little more bustle to our community Some ol our clever gentlemen have just established a Hotel and put it uuder the charge of a French gen tleman, who calls it after himself, L'Deltrieu?it is a pleasant establishment enough, and supplied with papers, both from Eugland una the United States, Among the latter we have the greatest satisfaction of reading the N. Y. Herald; still I think the hotel cannot succeed, unless the landlord is more obliging and less exorbitant in his charges. We have also another place of public resort about being established -a bowling alley, by an enterprizmg Yankee, Mr Fisher, who has purchased his premises, and lsiit ling it up in good stvle, wher" we anticipate fine sport, and a lucrative employment to the proprie tor Balize has boasted of a saw mill for some three or four years past, but the joke is, it has been ly ing dead property from the time it was erected, until a lew weeks past, its proprietor not having it furnished with a proper saw and not being suffi ciently practised in the art of logsawing. The mill is now in operation by a competent person, who ie endeavoring to furnish your city in part with ma hogany sawed into planks and boards. When we see a man in any community who is trickish in his dealings, we say the public should know it, and every stranger should be forewarned of his character; but pejrhaps many strangers (ship mas ters) visiting our place for the purpose of trad?, don't see an imposition until too late, and theu to save a detention of his vessel, which is always an extra expense to his owners, he (the shipmaster) submits and will " down with the dust," rather than remain in port after his vessel is ready for sea. Our knowledge of a recent case of imposi tion practiced upon Capt. Noyes,of the Sea Flower, has led to these remarks. A winch was hired, with some immaterial, part broken, and on its return accusation was made of having broken the winch, and its full value de manded, together with the hir*. notwithstanding a whole crew stood ready to testify that the iustru ruent was landed, and delivered in asgood order as received onboard, ugainstone negro who swore to the contrary. A scene occurred at the landing quite diverting, but disgraceful to our place, and disgraceful in its very nature. A dispute arising between one of the sailors delivering the winch, who was intoxicated, and the lettee, who called upon his partner, the negro, to punish Jack for his insolence, and at futicufls they went, a son of tlie winch owner clipping his hands, crying, "Go it, Tommy! go it Tommy!" Poor Jack would have come out Becond best if it were not for the interposition of his shipmates. Balizian. Arrival.?Hon.
