Wn give in our columns this morning the special message sent by President Tyler to Congress on Thursday, growing out of the recent diplomatic intercourse between our government and that of Mexico. It is a highly interesting document, and is accompanied with all the fubsequent corres pondence between Mr. Shannon and Mr. Rejon, part of which has already been published. We re ceived this message yesterday by special express, a long time in advance of the mail, and issued it immediately in an extra. This metsage is rather important. The Presi dent represents, in the strongest and most graphic language imaginable, the conduct of Mexico to wards Texas during the last eight or ten years He denounces that conduct in language even more forcible than that employed by Mr. Shannon, thereby showing that the Executive, in all its branches, juuifies (he conduct ot Mr. Shannon iu his diplomacy with Mexico. He also believes that the conduct of Mexico would justify a decla ration of war, or at least war measures, probably having in view the retusal to pay the last instalment of the iademnity; but taking into consideration the distracted condition of the country?its weakness and internal disuoion?he thinks that the best method ot settling the whole business would be for Congress at once to pass the necessary measures for the re-annexation of Texas to the United States and let Mexico take what course she pleases. This certainly appears to be the simplest and easiest course for our government to pursue, but whether Congress will adopt such a proposition with any degree of expedition, seems more than doubtful in the present disorganized condition of the democracy in both Houses. There can be no doubt in the minds of all rational men, that if any issue has been decided by the result of the recent electii n, that of the annexation of Texas to the Uuited Slates was that issue. It is also believed that the opinion of the President elect is now per* frctly coincident with that < f Mr. Tyler with re spect to his measure for annexation, and if such be the case, there is nothing to prevent all the members of that party who supported Mr. Polk's election from going at once into the work and carrying out to completion the issues decided by the people at the polls. No doubt there are certain influences and cer tain interests in the ranks of the democratic party that endeavor to use this question of annexation as a means ot accomplishing certain selfish pur poses. It remains to be seen whether their in trigues will prevent the accomplishment of this great measure itself. At all events, should annexa tion be decided at this session of Congress,there is every rational possibility that no disturbance would menace the foreign relations of the country either with Mexico or England. New Qualifications for a Foreign Minister. ?The Courier tf Enquirer manifests great anxiety that the President should retain Mr. Edward Ever ett as Minister of the United States in London, and presents some of the most singular arguments in favor of his capacity that we have seen, (t wrmi that Mr. Everett's manner is agreeable to certain persons of rank in England?and of course no one is qualified to fill his office, and represent the inter ests of the United States, who may have a different style in his intercourse with men. As a literary man, Mr. Everett has a great deal of merit; but he is by no means fitted to occupy the post of Ambas sador at the English Court in the present critical state of our foreign relations with Europe. We believe that one of the very first acts of Mr. Polk ought to be the removal of Mr. Everett, and the appointment in his room of such a tnaa of tact, en ergy, talent, and high qualifications, as Mr. Caleb Cushing, who has just returned from his eminently successful mission to China. Mr. Everett is a mere literary dandy and nothing else. Immorality of the Ao*.?The immoralities of the present age seem to be increasing instead of di minishing. Every we? k?nay, almost every day new facta and new events are developing them selves, highly disgraceful to the character of the present age?not amongst the lower and middling classes alone, but in the upper circles of^ociety. Look at the disgraceful tquabbles between John Quiney Adams and Charles J Ingerso.l? men high in pofition in the national goversment, but de scending to emulate the lowest loafers of the Five Poims orCorlies' Hook in their langtmge and treat ment of each other Look at the recent horrible developments in atrial in Boston, where it appears infanticide is as prevalent as if we were a nation of Pdgrins. L">nk at the spectacle in this city, of twenty-one Bishops ot the church of God?of the exclusive holy church of Christ?of a church that turns up its nose at all others on account of its supe nor pretensions to sanctity and respectability? en gaged in investigating the immoralities of a brother Bishop?charges which have been hanging over his head tor years ! Are we not justified in believing that some morning before we rise a shower of fire aud brimstone will detcend from heaven upon the whole earth and burn it uo 1 Old Saws and Moduli Instancis ?There is a certain class of old women in New York, who, whenever any thing comes up of a doubtful nature, immediately run to Chancellor Kent or Albert Gal latan, or some other old and respectable man who formerly had a reputation and infljence in society, in order to ascertain their opinion, thinking there by to set the whole world right. It seems that Mr. Gallatin's opinion on the subject of Mr. McDuffie's motion about Texas, has been obtained in this way, and is,ot course,opposed to the Senator. With sll due deference to these respectable and venera ble men, we think that the youthful minds of the present age are much more capable of judging of all the qu'stiens of the day than the old men, however respectable, of the last century. But as the old women of the city are in the way of ask ing questions, they had better get Mr Gallatin's opinion of "the whiskey riots in Pennsylvania." Rsv Joy H Fslrohtld is in Beaton, to enter upon his de fines on the Indictment found against him for adultery with Rhoda Davidson- Robert Rantoul, Jr. and OH. Pnctln, are engaged ai roansel for Mr. Falrchlld. Italian Our a.?To-night th? ??|?l??i?did opera Lucrezia Borgia is to be performed, with the t?o prima donnas. We hope that there will be a crowd ed house, for it is very evident that unless those who protest to have a taste for music, extend a more liberal and uniform degree of patronage in future, we will not be able to retain this delightful amusement amongst us. We have already given a statement of the receipts and expenditures during the present season, showing that the artists after l>ayiog all expenses, are but poorly paid, their aver age salary being only about #25 a week. Yet there is something to hope from the musical taste ol New York. Since the first establishment of the opera, the patronage has been slowly, but regularly increasing. During the present season the receipts have been considerably above what they were under Mr. Palmo's arrangement. Many supposed that he made money, but quite the con trary was the case, as the following statement shows:? Statkmc!?t or Ricsiris and Eipkkditcru or Fksdi rand Palmo, rum Mabch 1, >841, to Dec. 1, 1814' Rtcciftt. Exptiuet far JlmtunI fx I am* period i. pendrd ovrr To amount sf Ca?h Riceipti received to date, $43 7i0 14 $49,864 48 $6,184 99 Feb ?essm of Opera, 7 ?76 60 10.437 06 2,811 46 Amount n cM during Oct., short IcMOO, 3 &J0 36 8,644 68 1,024 88 $64 016 90 Building Theatre kc 86 000 00 86 000 00 U? pairing Baths, kc. 3 700 00 3 700 00 $101,718 0? $47 ,700 17 It will be seen from this, when viewed in con nection with the statement previously published, that, although the aggregate receipts are still in sufficient to give adequate remuneration to the artist, yet they exceed those obtained formerly. Palmo, it is evident, has lost a great deal ol money, $47,00? in lour years. This is certainly melancholy enough for him ; but he has the con solation of being able to declare that his integrity and honesty remain unimpeachable. The first at tempt at the establishment of Italian opera is, however, always attended with more or less pecu niary loss. In this, as in many other undertakings, the pioneers make all the sacrifice*. We do trust that after all the expenditure, and labor, and perseverance in introducing the opera, its patrons will not suffer it to decline. Let there be imme diate and decided measures adopted for its perma nent establishment, so as to preclude the possi bility ot failure. Important Movements of the Mayor and City Fathers.?'The Mayor and the members of the Corporation?at least some of them?seem inclined to indulge in amusements rather than to attend to the interests of the city. Whilst robberies, bur glaries, intrigues, pistollings in the public streets, are increasing beyond anything ever known in the city of New York, the organs of his Honor are every other day full of interesting notices of en tertainments at the "Sailor's Retreat"?visits to Black well's Island?elegant tea parties in the Gov ernor's Room?or some junketting or another ? These amusements ot his Honor and compatri ots are occasionally diversified by attending a tem perance lecture, or being put int& communication with some fair magnetic subject, in order to ascer tain the condition of the t-treets of the city. Where or when is all this folly, nonsense, silli ness, and faithlessness, on the pait of the present Corporation, to come to an end 1 The members of the Corporation were elected expressly under the impulse of reform and good government, and yet there never was a Corporation that has labored so successfully to be-little itself, and beget the con tempt of the public and outrage popular opinion ? Will their hypocritical appeals about "the Bible," "the Bible"?"the Bible"?or their bigotted tirades against "the Pope"?"the Pope"-"the Pope"? excuse their gross neglect of their duties, and wast ing their time in silly, wishy-washy junkettings about the city and neighborhood 1 Routes to Albany.?On Thursday last, we un derstand, that the directors of the New Haven and Springfield Railroad made an excursion from thi8 city to Springfield, leaving the East River at 6 o'clock in the morning, and reaching Springfield at 3 o'clock, where they dined,wined, and amused themselves for several hours and then returned early yesterday morning. This will be the opening of a new and very agreeable route to Albany during the winter, and will supercede entirely the old stage route on either side of the Hudson. There is to be sure another route by Bridgeport and the Housatonic Railroad, which unites with the great Western line, and reaches Albany that night, being one day from New York. By this route the mail goes, but we believe the most comfortable accommodations will be found on the New Haven and Springfield route. The company have placed two splendid steamers on the line between New York and New Havao, and the nooonmodatiou on the railroad itself are of the most ample and elegant descrip tion. A traveller by this route leaves the city about S o'clock in the morning, eats a comlortable break fast on board the steamer, dines at Springfield, lakes the western train from Boston, and reach*s Albany at 8 o'clock in the evening. We have no doubt that this will be the principal route to Albany iu the winter season. The Attempt at Assassination on Yesterday! Judge Oakley suspended the trial in the case of Jackson n. Aymar et al. on yesterday, on applica tion of one of the lawyers, to enable him to proceed to the police office in the case of Joseph Emerick, charged with the attempt to assassinate Eugene Groussett, in Broadway, on yesterday. There is a trial pending in the Superior Court in which a party named Albert Mathias has sued Emerick for libel Groussett, it appears, had been summoned as a witness against Emerick,which originated the quar rell which had nigh ended so fatally. The parties are all French. Theatrical Guns Going Off.?To-day, we understand,that Hackett, and also Forrest, sail for England They go to France and England, as the representatives of the American drama. Mr. Hack ett occupying the distinguished position of the sole representative of the comic drama, and Mr. For rest that of the legitimate drama. They have a mission to f ulfil in England, but in the present con dition ol the Texas question.it is doubtful whether they will succeed. Howevfr.it will be all made up in Paris, Mr. Calhoun having succeeding in se curing the approbation ol our foreign policy by Gunot and Louis Philippe. Both these dramatic gentlemen will no doubt create a great sensation in Europe. ___ . Singular Contest?Lbcturis on Scotttmi Bono ?A great deal of excitement has been crea ted in the course of last week amongst the lovers of Scottish song in this city, in consequence of the announcement that Mr. Dempster, the well known vocalist, and Mr. Cliiehugh of this city, intended each to deliver a course of lectures on Scottish Minstrelsy with illustrations Mr. Clirehugh com mences on Mondsy evening next, and Mr. Demp ster follows on Tuesday evening, both at the So ciety Library Rooms. Several bets are pending on these two literary and musical coursers, snd a purse will probably be made up before the week is over, to be decided at one grand meeting of both audiences. Literary Movements.?Park Benjamin has again resigned the editorship of the Nno IVorld. Probably he was getting it into trouble, having sue needed in procuring an indictment against himself iind his proprietor. "Professor Eames" is an nounced as his successor. Pray, who is " Profes sor E>?mea1" We have been told that be has been i "professor" ot grammer in some of the female hoarding schools up town. The Hudson is open to Pojghksepsie. Texas ?The Llarkmnllt (Trnn ) Northtrn Stan? lard, of the 20th ult., announces that Ebensser Mien, Esq., of that place, has been appointed At torney General of the "Lone Star" Republic. flleetlng of the New York Practical Mag netlc Medical Society. This association, which has been in existence ?boat three months, held a meeting last night at Columbia Hall, in Grand street. There were about a hundred persons present, respeci&ble look ing, and evidently much engaged with the subject of animal magnetism. Of these, a large propor tion were feuults, of every age?from the bloom ?ng girl of sixteen, to the old, wrinkled and spec tacled matron of threescore. It appears that this society is composed of a number of (tenons, who believe in the truth of magnetic phenomena?of their applicability to useful purposes, and who are bent upon investigating, in a practical manner, their nature. As far as the constitution of the as sociation is expressive of its views, they do not seem to be possessed with the fanaticism, too pre valent on the subject of mesmerism; nor is it like ly that much mischief would follow the cautious restricted, and temj*rate examination of the phe nomena, which are alleged to be produced, and which, certBmly cannot, judging Irom last night's proceeding, consistently with the evidence of our senses, be altogether decried. # When the room was tolerably well filled with the members of the Society, who were alone ad missible on this occasion?I)r A. B Strong, the leading person connected with th* Association, was called to the Chair, and Mr. Roes to act u . ecretary. The minu'es of the last meeting were read and adopted, alter which the election of offi cers for the next three months occupied nearly an hour ?-f the toirkt. The President then said that the meeting was open for business,and reminded them that the sub ject discussed at theirlast meeting, namely?"Does the active principle of Magnetism affect the blood ?r;Jk.ekn',^??P8, j 10 *>>y remarks that might be offered, after which they would proceed to make some experiments.

The motion being adopted nem con., i he President proceeded to read a brief docu ment,setting forth the objects of their a?socia?ion the utility of magnetism, its liability, however, to be abused by the quackery, ignorance and extrava ganceof injudicious, but, above all, designing ad yooates. In expressing the hostility of the Society to all such procedure, it appeared to be very well understood that the remarks were intended to apply to a late humbug exhibition of a professor who is JJLclty' and j*"'* wa8 sported in the Herald.

Distribution of Primes by the American Art VnloH> The American Art Union, (late Apollo Associa tion) held iu annual meeting last evening, for the distribution of prizes among the members. The Society Library room waa densely crowded with ladies and gentlemen, at an early hour, and hun. dreds came who were obliged to go away for want of seats. The 'obbies and entrances were crammed to suffocation, and the greatest anxiety prevailed to see and hear what was going on. The paintings which had been selected as prizes were tastetully arranged across the lower wall of the room,in front of the audience, and made a most beautiful dis play, which at once arrested the attention and en chained all eyes. Never before has there been so much excitement manifested in the city on the subject of the Fine Arts, (by which we especially mean painting and sculpture,) and it is quite evi dent that anew feeling in regard to them is taking root and rapidly spreading among our citizens. The Chair was taken by W. C. Bryant, Efq., the President of the Art Union, and the report for the past year was read. From this document it appears that the affairs of the institution are in a most promising condition The list of members has already swelled to over two thousand, and 1# daily receiving new accessions. The numberof pic tures distributed among the members last year waa fifty-one. and this year it is niwefy tioo, and tue pronpects of greatly extending the operations ot the institution are verv flittering. Alter the reading of the report, which waB una nimously accepted, the Rev Dr. Bellows rose and delivered a pertinent and eloquent addresa.on the condition of the Arts in this county, and their pros pects for the future. He contended that so tar from being behind other nations in thepr?>duction and en couragement of works of art,we had contributed our full proportion of both, during the brief period in which we had been ranked among the lamily ot nations. He believed that the dissemination of a taste for the fine arts was peculiarly necessary in a country so full ol harsh and rude excitements as ours, nnd dwelt upon the softening and numaniz ing influences of the creations ol the pencil and the chisel upon the manners and character of a peop.e It was every way desirable that a portion ot the excitement and enthusiasm, which we bestow upon our political questions and religious contents ?should be diverted into the elegant and gentle channels of the fine arts, and that thev were not only our means of escape from ihe reproach ol rude ness and uncouthness, which had been too justly cast upon us, but were, in fact, intimately con nected with the permanency of our institutions themselves. . John Jay, Jr., Esq then made a few appropriate remarks, and was followed by Hon Gkorgb Folsom, Senator elect from this district, who said that, us he was himself very im patient to proceed to the distribution of those beau tiful prizes which the audience were so intents admiring, he presumed every body else was equal ly so, and he would detain tliem but a moment.? Me tb?n made a few earnest remarks in eulogy of the fine arts, and mentioned the peculiar fitness of i this country, with its magnificent and unequalled

scenery, and its specimens of exquisite living beau ty,spread out on every hand, for excellence in them. He recommended btrongly that Americans should patronize and encourage their own citizens in prefer ence to foreigners, and hoped soon to see the time when the statues ?ndpictureslor our public buildings would be ordered of native artists, instead of pend ing three thousand miles across the ocean fortturn. (This was received with applause and some muni festations of displeasure ) He hoped, too, that every gentleman, when selecting embellishments lor his parlor, his drawing-room, or his library, would give a preference to native artists; and he yet expected to hear the artists ef America named in the same breath and on perfect equality with those of any other nation, whether present or past (Applause) . . The report of the nominating committee (renew ing the appointments of lafat year) was then read and unanimously adopted, when the grand business of the evening?the distribution of the prizes commenced. The ninety-two members, represent ing the ninety-two prizes, were placed in one wheel, and the names of all the paying subscribers to the Art Union in another Two tellers were appointed, and a number drawn out, and at the same time a name from the other box. This was repeated until the ninety-two members and the corresponding namea were drawn; and the follow ng was the result: ? 1 De Soto discovering the Mississippi .by Rothennel?R. D.

Before Chief Justice Jones. $Dkc. 20.?Merchant vs. Pott, et of.?This case already reported, waa concluded to day. His Honor in charging dwelt upon the character of the testimony produced to sustain the action, which in his opinion, was not weakened by the evidence put in for the defence They had sufficient proof of the aggravated nature of the assault, and it remained for the jury to de teimine to what extent the assault was justified- It was put iu for the defence that n mutinous spirit bad existed ?m board the vessel at the time the rff-nce was commit "vl : but in the opinion of the court the testimony was too feeble to sastain the plea of Justification. It remained tor the jury not only to determine whetherornot the pKnishment was beyond aud disproportioned to the of tence, but to what ? x'ent. If the plaintiff suftVnd wrong e was justly entitled to a verdict. The mate had com nutted the assault, and though a certain power existed vith subordinates to punish seamen, that power only ex 'ended to cases nf deep emergei Cy, such as where a vea k?1 may lie in danger of being wrecked in a gale or such like casrs, where u seaman may refuse to obey orders; '?ut iu all other cases, even though the subordinate on 'ooard should receive delegated authority from the mas ter to inflict punishment, still the master was responsible, and should be held liable for the consequences The jury alter a short deliberation, rendered a verdict for plaintiff t f $100 damages and six cents costs.

N#hmal School at Albany.?The Normal School at Albany, n institution for the education of the teacher* in the Common Schools, was open ed on Wednesday last tinder gratifying auspices If conducted properly, this institution may contri bute very materially to the improvement of educa tion as a science. The instructors of youth in the primary, and, indeed, in some of the more pretend l lg schools of this country, have not in many in utances undergone the best possible course of edu cation for the discharge of their important duties A school where candidates for the office of Public fchool teachers could be themselves "properly" educated, both in the branches of knowledge in which they would afterwards be called on to in etiuct others, as will as in the science of education itself, was much wanted. We are glad to perceive therefore that the first step has been at length taken it this matter, and that an institution for the pur poses just described,has been opened under the pa tronage of the State, in such a way as will ensure it a fair trial.
