We beg leave to announce to the public, that we have completed our arrangements for the establish ment of a daily expreu between New York and New Orleans, which will furnish this journal with all the important intelligence from the great Southern city, from one to four days in advance of the U S. mail. This express will go into operation very soon after the 1st of January. In its operation it will not interfere at all with the Post Office laws, or the businets of the Post Office Department. It is altogether of a different character from thut of the private expresses recently established between New York and the various cities of the Athntic sea board. Our express will be used merely for the purpose of bring public and private news from New Orleans, to this city, for the use of the Herald estab lishment al ?ne, and which will be communi cated immediately to the public, and be for public advantage, thus interfering in no respect with the revenues of the Post Office Department, or the Post Office laws, in refeience to the trails^ mission of newspapers and letters. In connection with this express at New Orleans, we are making arrangements for correspondents and agents at Natchez, Mobile, and all the other cotton points points in the United States, not for getting Havana,Galveston,in Texas, and VeraCruz, in Mexico, further South. All the intelligence, both commercial and political,from all these points in the South, concentrating at New Orleans, will be received at the office of the New York Herald?im mediately on the express going into operation? lrom one to four days, according to the Btate of the weather and the roads, in advance of any other paper ia the Northern States. It is well known that during the winter season the United States mails, from their great weight, frequently fail for days together on the Southern route on this side of Georgia, and sometimes beyond. The Herald express, established for the exclusive purpose of bringing intelligence for us,will seldom or never be liable to such accidental detention, because it will be run altogether on a different principle, and car ry only a light weight. It will be perceived there fore, that the New York Herald, during the ensuing winter month,swill alone be enabled to give all the New Orleans, Mexico, and Texas news, both poli tical and commercial,ahead of allits cotemporaries in the Northern States. Another point of importance. The advantage of early intelligence by this method of conveyance, will also enable ut to communicate to our cor respondents in Liverpool, London, and Paris, im portant intelligence of the state of the Southern markets, and of the affairs of Mexico and Texas, frequently days in anticipation of any other news paper establishment at the North. Wc are, therefore, in connexion with leading newspaper establishments in Europe, situated in Liverpool, London and Paris, making arrangements of a mutual character and for mutual benefit in con nexion with our great New Orleans daily express. Tne reasons which have induced us to attempt such a magnificent enterprise in the newspaper bu siness are numerous and cogent. The recent movements of the government with respect to Mexico and Texas in reference to the annexation, have given such a prominence to events maturing and taking place in those southern regions, that the public mind is interested in the highest degree in the early publication of such intelligence ; and the governmentsof the old world have been awakened to a new perception of the importance of the same movements, and the new developments and direc tion of the principles which formerly regulated the balance of power. The extraordinary sensation which has been produced in France and England and all over Europe by the election of Mr. Polk and th? success of the measures identified with him, will be succeeded by a etill greater intensity of excitement when tlje accounts of the recent di plomatic intercourse of this government with Mexico shali have reached their shores. A new era in the political and commercial connections of Europe and America has broken upon us, and this Texas question?this annexation question?will hereafter create a d?eper interest in the govern ments of Europe?in their public journals, and in the public mind generally, than all the other ques tions that have agitated the old world for the past quarter of a century. In order to satisfy the great avidity for intelligence thus create J, we have found means to organize thedaiiy express between New York and New Orleans, in connexion with newspapers in the latter city, and also when our arrangements are fully completed, with leading newspaper establishments in Europe. These are some of the political reasons which have induced us to attempt such a piece of enter prze. But there are other reasons more of a com mercial nature. The present position of the cotton market, both in Europe and in this country, is such as to give the greatest degree of interest to com mercial intelligence from the south. The agita tion of the cotton question is beginning to show itself in the southern States. The extremely low price in Europe of that great staple?the immense produce of the two last years?are elements of this great commercial movement, which add to its in terest and give edge to everything connected with it. Such are the reasons that have inducfd uh to en ter into this original and important project. It will obviously be an expensive experiment; but, in connection with other newspapers, at other points, the expense will be portioned out in such a manner as to be withiu our ability. Indeed, the patronage of the American public has been so liberally ex tended to the Ntiv York Herald, that we are per fectly justified hi attempting to carry newspaper enterprize to its Highest points of perfection. From a circulation of a few hundreds, with which the Herald commenced its existence, in 1836, we have now reached a circulation of 19,500 daily papers, and a circulation of 18,600 weekly papers?making an aggregate of nearly 40,000?probably a number beyond that of aay other newspaper establishment on the globe. It is this liberal, generous, and mag nanimous patronage and approbation?substantial patronage?of the public which has enabled us to overcome so many difficulties, and so much bitter and vulgar opposition, and which now, with ener gies unimpaired, and means greater than ever, will enable us to surpass any newspaper that ever at tempted to enlighten the public mind in this hemis phere. These few words present a brief view of the en terprize which we have attempted?of the reasons which led us to engage in such a scheme?ol the means which have enabled us to undertake it and carry it out successfully?and of the consequences likely to flow from it both to the American public, ?nd to til in Europe interetted in any way in the affairs of the new world. Ia ? f#w days after the 1*1 ol Jdiniury, we expect an exprers to be ill ope ration. Wo will then be enabled to publish in ad vance of all other northern journal*), and to publish exclusive! 1/ in all the large cities within two or three hundred mile* of New York, all the impor tant commercial intelligence fiom New Orleans, Mobile, and Natchez, and also all the political in telligence?daily becoming more intensely inte resting?from Texas and Mexico?all from one to three, four, or live days in advance of the United Stales mail. Bishop O.ndkkdo.nk's Trial..?The trial of Bishop Onderdonk, for certain offences charged against him, is still going on before twenty-one Bishops in this city, has been proceeding for ten or twelve dtya. A great deal of inquiry has keen made in all circles aa to the facts testified to against him, and many intimations have been ? **? in certain journals of the character of the evidence sworn to In order to allay the curiosity of the public in some degree, and to give correct luftfrination, we have endeavored to find out the substance ol what has been going on, and we now proceed to give it ea far as we can. It secina that Bishop Onderdouk has been charged in several specifications with immoral and unchristian conduct as a Bishop of the Church of God. The charges are presented in the form of a paper of indictment, and presented by three Bishops. During the time in which the Court has been in session, seven or eight individunls, male and fe male, have been examined touching the truth of these several charges. On several occasions, legul aud ecclesiastical technicalities were brought for ward and discussed by the learned counsel on both sides, and searching cross-examinations have been gone into iu the usual way which distin. guishes the (gentlemen of the bar. The sub stance of the evidence, thus far, according to the best information is of a very singu lar character. It appears that this evidence establishes the great leading fact, that the Bishop h is been in the habit, for many years, of em bracing the sisters of the Episcopal Church?of kissing men's .wives?and of caressing young virgins and elderly spinsters in an eminently pa triarchal and affectionate manner. The testimony for the prosecution has closed, the last witnesses examined having been a clergymau of Utics, and his spouse. The latter testified that the Bishop once kissed her, and that she t'nstanter told her lord of the fast of the Episcopal salutation. The clergyman, however, when brought on the stand, flatly contradicted his wife, and averred that he had never before heard of the holy kiss. Thus, then, the matter stands at this moment. Now, it is remarkable that both parties admit 1 he general fact of the kissings, and embracings, and cares8ings of his Holiness, but the grand qucstio vexata?the point to be solved?the grsnd theorem for the (consideration of the Court?is the quo animo?the spirit and intent of the aforesaid acts of the Bishop. The point to be settled was, were these salutations accompanied by improper emotions, and motives, or were they of that cha racter-recommended by Paul, when he affection ately exhorted his beloved son, Timothy, to sc lute his sisters, Priscilla and Aquila 1 This is the sum and substance of the evidence, and this is the point at issue now. It is, indeed, a knotty point, and we shall await with all humi lity, and much anxiety, its solution. Ole Bull.?Musical Criticism.?In our co lumns to-day, will be found a very unique review and criticism of Ole Bull, as a composer and an artist, including also, remarks on his famous new compositions the " Niagara" and " Solitude of the Praries." The writer, who possesses great taste and genius, is, however, a foreign gentle man, only acquainted with the English language by study tinder a master?not from his mother. This may account for any peculiarity in his phra seology. The recent superb compositions of Ole Bull? their queer reception by the public?the anecdotes told of the artist?have all given a kern edge to musical writings and teachings about hiin. Three capital writers on these points have appeared iu the journals?the one to-day in th? Herald?who may be called the scientific critic; Mrs. Childs in the Boston Courier, who is the poetical critic, and he of the Evening Mirror, who is so ignorant of I music, on which he writes to much, as not to know the difference between " harmony" and " melody." ________ Italian Opera.?Clara, de Rosenberg is to be performed to-night, and we expect to arc a crowd ed and brilliant house. We aie happy to learn that the utmost unanimity prevails amongst the com pany, notwithstanding the attempts of certain miserable hangers on about the opera, who endea vor to get up cliques and parties, for the purpose of putting up one prima donna and putting down an other. An effort of this kind has been made in the Evening Mirror, with the view of creating bad feeling between the admirers of both the distinguish ed artistes, by stating that " Borghcse wanted to mike Pico subservient to her." A meaner, more unworthy,and more ungentlemanly falsehood never appeared in any journal, aud we have full authority from ail parties to put the brand upon it at once. Interesting prom HAYTr ?The Marian Gage, Capt. Collins, arrivedye er<! y from St. Domingo Among the passenger. the Marian, are Joseph Billin and Dr. Caminaro, commissioners from the Spanish part of the Inland to the United States. This section has beeR declared independent of the Haytien Government, and has been recognized as a separate Republic. These commissioners have visited America to open a trade between their Republic, called the " Kepublica Dominica," and the United Stater. The^ seek a recognition, by our government, ol their independence, and wish to negociate a treaty of amity and peace with us. This new nation which has started into existence so suddenly and unexpectedly, lias adopted a con stitution, headed "God, Country and Liberty," and seem determined to outstrip the oldT part of Hayti. Lati fro* Cuba.?By the Rapid, Warif, arrived yesterday, in nnhort passuge from Havana, we re ceived a Christmas gilt of a lot of Cuba papers, notorious for their barrenness of news. When the Spanish become a little more civilized, and take off their present odious censorship of the press, the Havana journals will be worth something, and not till then. Bai.us and So Forth.?Balls are multiplying all over the city. The one recently given by the "Young Guard," at the new hotel up-town, seems to have created a great deal of talk and sensation. We have several elegant accounts of it, but gene rally the writers complain of the want of waiters? the difficulty of getting refreshments?and the high price charged for those that were obtained. All admit that in all other respects the affair went off admirably. Well, the proprietor of the hotel is but beginning, and he must be excused, as he will do better next time. The new ball room at the Al hamra is represented to be one of the principal placcs for these re unions. It will be inaugurated next week. The Cokoo Melodists and Little Olk Bull. ?Last evening Niblo's was well attended to hear these musicians, and everything went off with the greatest Mat.

Pub lic Nchooli Mid tbe Bible. A very large assemblage of the public look place yesterday at two o'clock, in Ihe Taber nacle, to hear ail address ot Dr. D. M Reese, the County Superintendent of Public Schools, upon the exclusion of the Bible in certain wards in this city. Major Harper occupied the chair. The services were opened with prayer by Rev. Dr Dowling. Twelve young ladies then sung "Come, come away"?after which a large number of the children from the Publie Schools, sung the following Christmas Hymn. We won't give up the Bibls, Gort'j holy bonk of tiuth, The hie tied stall of hoary ag", The guide of early youth,? The lamp which shed* a glor.ou* li jht O'er every dreary road,? The voice which apeaks a Savioi's 1 >ve. And leadi u* home to God. We won't give up the Bible, Oid'* holy book of truth. We wont give up the Bible, For it alone can tell The way to nave our ruined soul* From being lent to hell. A'd it alone can tell u? how We can have hope* ot h> aven? That through the bavior's precious blcol Our kin* may be forgiven. We won't give up the Bible, Ood'd holy book oi truth. We wont give up the Bible; But if } e force away What i*a*ourownlile-blood deer, We (till with joy could say: " The word* that we have learned while youn J Shall follow all our day*: ? For they're engraven on our hearts, And you cannot erase." We wont give up the Bible, &c. We wont give up tha Bible? We'll shout it tar and wide; Until the echo shall be heard Beyond the rolling tide. Till all shall know that we, though young, Withstand each treach'rous art: And that from God'* own (acred word Wa'il never, never part! We woutgive up the Bible, kr. Mayor Harper then introduced Dr D M. Kkeik, who proceeded to read anaddrtsson the exclusion ef th? Bible from the school* in certain ward* of this city. He commenced by observing to his Honor the Mayor,that he wa? one o( the fruits of the excel lent public school system, that was the glory of the Em pire State and City, in which the Bible wm read and honored; and fait sure that he would not withhold bis favor from that system which their patriot father* lever el ai essential to their system of government, and it* prosperity. In alluding to the banishment ot the Bible from the schools, he would say for the satisfaction of the public, and to correct wrong impressions, that it wan not universal in this city. So fir from that being the fact, the Bible wa* read in about three-fourths of the school* in thacity and county, which were attended by about the same rropjrtion of the total number oi children attend in* those schools. The same was also true of the Ward Schools established under the now law, and the incorpo rated ichool* of the caunty, a* well as those connected with the Orphan Asylum, that of the Roman Catholic Brethren included, where the Sister* ol ( harity, who were the teachers, read the Holy Scripture* to their papila according to the Douay ver*ian, without note or com ment. Still there were four Ward* in thi* city, Irom whoie school* the Bible waa excluded, the children at tending which were forbid len to read the Bible. He owed it, however, to the teachers of these school* to lay that he did not fiud a-nong the* any who objected to the use of the Bible ; and it was equalfy due to the parent* of the pupils that they were equally free from objection* to the reading of the Scriptures by them Indeed, *o ldrfrom that, it was daily read by a large number of thorn who at tended thosu schools, in which it was u*ed. The blame ?houId rest with the culpable, and those were the Ward ofHccra. He would not at that time stop to detail the complaint* in which, a* County Superintendent, he was involved, and the little success which attended his appli cation on the kubject. Suffice it ti *ay, that those who sanctioned the exclusion of the Bible, thereby admitted that it wjs a necessary evil. Under these circumstances, be found himself called upon to support the law, to see to it* due adminiitration, or el*e to wink at the Bi bls being trampled under foot with impunity. In thi* itate ot the caae, he felt compelled to apply to hi* fellow citizens, hoping to be sustained by the voice of American Protectant*. To be called upon in the nineteenh century in a rrote?taet country in a land of religion* foiling, to defend the use of the Bible, was enough to make one blush tor the degeneracy of their country ; and those little one* who had *o sweet ly cung, "We wont give lip the Bible,"' were ready to cry out, "Shame on the anti-Christian it *tem that makes its defence neces*ary." To thaae ward officer! who, calling themselves both Protestant and American, and who were the cause of ex cluding the Bible, he would ?ay a* Alexander once said to a cowardly soldier who claimed to bs a namesake of hi*?"Change your name or change your character."? Dr. Reeie then entered into a very poe ic eulogy of the Bible, which it i* not necessary to give, as most person* are impressed with it* value and it* claim, and then asked was *uch a book to be banished from their ichool*,.and would American citizens tolerate an act, thereby diihon ering their God f Shade* of the Pilgrim father* forbid it ; the memory of Washington banish such a thought ! It wa*, he thought, correct to regard the exclusion of the Bible as a gratuitous wrong on the part of those he men tioned, aad one not to be tolerated by the people. Hi* argument in it* favor as a book in general use, was founded fir*t, upon tbe universality of its adoption in every country where civil and religious lib erty prevailed; in Kngland, Scotland, Ireland, Prussia, Switzerland, Ice.; whilst on the other haod,in Russia, Rome, Spain, and other countries where the former prevailed it was excluded, consistently with the incompatability of popery with the principle and practice of liberty. The *peaker here detailed the unharmonlou* working of the system by having two sets of officer*?a different *et of principles in operation. One sustaining the u*e of the Bible, the other excluding it; one making a particular selection of book*, the other a different one. The operation of *uch a system did not, and could not produce harmony?could not be anything but odious and unpopular, and totally inconsistent with the main design of this system, which wna to train up the young in vir tue and intelligence, a* these were essential to the peipe tuity of our free inititutians, for without them even uni versal suff rage became a universal curse ; it wa* design mI to confer u,.?n ail. whether native or foreign, withoj' distinction of country orreligluu. that a>?trnntion neces sary to bo worthy citizoa* of the country, and to join all in a united brotherhood, of which it might be said, "the rich and the poor meet together, the Lord is the master of them all" The feai of God and reverence for the Bible were euential quali fication* for American citizenship ; for the very first duty a man may be required to perform would be to testify upon oath on the Bible in a court of law, and no good judge could accept the oath of him who did not respect and know how to value the Bible. He who was taught to regard the Bible as a sectarian boek, might as well swear upon any other sectarian book, and the youth who were so instructed would not be good citizen* but pe*t* of society. The schools under the supervision of the Roman Catnolic* defeated the de sign of the excellent *y*tem of education; many of them compriring nearly altogether Irish Roman Catho lics, having a tendency only to perpetuate national and religiou* peculiarities. Dr. Rec*e continued to argue at much length that the grant* of money to these school* were illegal under the act, because of the exclusion of the Bible a* a seotarlan book; that no option wa* left with him'a* County Superintendent?bis duty being plainly and explicitly to udminiater the law*, although that had brought down upon him the severest attack* of the pre**, end from every quarter lie protested his deter mination to persevere from a conviction of duty .declaring that If the law directed the use of the Roman Missal, he weuld either enforce thi.t injunction or re*ign. He thought it was high time for all American* who loved the word of truth, to awake in it* defence?if they did not, in a very short time, they should see a general conflagra tion of Bibles that would illume the sky with ts lurid flames, and the *ame *cene* enacted a* were witne**ed seme time ago toward tho northern border ol the "fate. The above is a very perfect synopsis of Dr. Reese's remarks, which were in some particulars pointed and racy, and pretty severe upon the grow ing evil of Popery. The address, which was a written one, was read in such a rapid manner as to baflle all attempts to report if, which is a loss, con sidering the cuiious compound of condolence lor the Bible, zeal for religion, and hatred of Popery, which it preaentedj Theatricals, Ac.

Public Meeting lost evening at tlae Taberna cle, by tbe frlenda or Mr. Oough, the Tem perance Lecturer. The Tabernacle last evening was literally jam med up by a crowded and highly fashionable meet ing, who came forward lo testily the deep sense entertained by the friends of Temperance of the valuable services of this gifted advocate of the cause. Mayor Harper presided, and introduced Mr. Parker, of New England, as a friend of the cause of temperance, in the absence of Mr. Gough. Mr. Parkrr came forward and said he should be happy to address the meeting, but as he observed Mr. Gough present, he did not consider it good taste to intrude a speech upon the meeting, as he recognized Mr. Gough in the crowd. Mr. Gough then made his appearancc upon the platform, when y The Boston Gi.ek Club came forward and sung a very excellent temperance quartette, when Mr Gohoh came forward and addressed the meeting In his opening rainarks, he complimented the friends of temperance who then came forward to testify their sympathy for the cause of temper ance, by coming forward on this occasion. Mr. G. then gave a most humorous account ol nit career as a druukard, and his subsequent conver aion to temperance. Siucc May, 1843, he had tra velled 12,000 miles in the cause ot temperance, and had been the mean* of converting 31,food to tem perance. He wibhed to be brief, but when he saw arouud him such a vast concouree of the Friends ol temperance who surrounded him, he lelt a deep conlidence in the success of the cause. It re quired the most untiring activity on the part of their friends to work the causes! temperrtuce. [n New England some of their irieuds advocated the adoption of moralBuasion to put down intem perance ; while others were in lavor of legal sua sion : but there ought be a dccmive and united et tort made by all the friends of temperance to put

down the enemy. Mr G , alter briefly reviewing his p.ut history and services in thei cause of tem pel ance. and admonishing the friends of thr causc to make every effort to sustain it, conclu ded, when ,, The Boston Glee Club sung some excellent tem perance songs, when the meeting separated. The tickets were each 25 cents, and Mr. Gough must have realised a very handsome sum, a* scarcely a seat in the immense building wasva cant. Thr Theatres on Christmas Evening.?The crowds of men, women, and children, that rushed to the various places of amusement, for the pur pose of winding uptha festivities of" Merry Christ mas," exceeded belief or description. The little Olympic had over thirteen hundred people crammed into it, and the others were equally crowded Noi a nook or corner in any of them remained unoccu pied. Probably eight or ten thousand people visi ted the theatres alone, while the circus and muse ums were packed with a couple of thousands more. In the noisy theatres, nothing was heard of th performances; and the actors and actresses might as well have gone through their farts in dumb show. The pit of the Chatham was a Bcene which, if we could adequately describe, would far sur pass every thing in the way of a crowd that has yet been written. Some three hundred news boy?, sharp set for a relaxation in the shape of theatrical criticism, from their usual literary pursuits, were engaged throughout the earliei part of the evening in an animated contest with the police officers, and several " stirring scenes, and peculiarly animated exits and entrances wer< enacted, to the uproarous delight of the gods and goddesses in the gallery, who cheered on the corn batants with the various slogans end war-cries ol the tribe, known only to the initiated, and alto gether untranslateable. Several of the noisiest and most unmanageable of these amateurs, were, at leugth, snaked out by the police, and the scene of their exploits changed to the Tombs. Compara tive quiet was at length restored, when a child in in the dress circle took umbrage at something oil the part of its mammn, and setup a clamor that quite drowned the bass drum, in the melo-drama tic music which ushered [tlie ghost of old Jacob Marley through the trap. The piece, Dickens' " Christmas Carol," may have been well or ill played?for certainly nobody was the wiser of it. At the Bowery the scene was very similar, only "a good deal more so." Twenty-five hundred people crowded to see an afternoon performance, which came oft there, and at least three thousand were squeezed in during the evening. The play was neither seen nor heard, the fun being all this side the foot-lights?and it muet be confessed thai the "performances" went oft, as the political papers say, "with the most tumultuous applause. At the Park there was also a crowded house, but tolerably quiet. Anderson played Claude Melnotte, and was accompanied throughout with the most unequivocal manifestations of approbation. At tbf close of the third act the applause was tremendous. When the piece was over, he was loudly called for, and coming modestly forward, said? " Ladle* and Gentlemen?I want words to thank yon for the kiDd and gratifying manner in which yon have received me F'ankly and sincerely. I wi*h you, witl. all joy and iinoerity, many a merry Chii*tma?." Loud calls were then made for Miss Clara Ellis, i to which, for a long time, no reply was made. At length, Mr. Crisp, very pardonably staking the ooiif*u0*?d ori?0 Iroin i\\o audicnccj CfilTlfi iorwftru tind said, " I thank you, ladies a gentlemen, for this unexpected honor.'* "We ain't calling for you! roared a voice in the pit,and the gentleman,making an embarrassed bow, glided off "O. P. ' "Ellis. Ellis! Clara Ellis!" was then thundered out Ironi all parts of the house for several minutes, when, nobody appearing, the audience were contented tf "give it up so, Mr. Brown," and Miss Cohen ap i peered in a dance, after which the "'Christmas Ca rol" was produced, and turned out to be a very happv adaptation from Dickens, and was very la vorxbly received. ' We doubt if Christmas, so far as the theatres, those great thermometers of public taste, are con cerned, ever was kept in this city with greater or more universal festivity; and, notwithstanding that the exuberance of good feeling in a portion ot Bome of the audiences, led to some rather queer mani Testations, yet, on the whole, it wbb gratifying to see with what good nature everything passed ott. In no other city in the world could such a general turn-out have ended peaceably short of a constabu lary force ten times aBstrong as ours, the mesmeric 1 forces" of his Honor included.

Already our hotels and board nig houses Rive evidence thbt applications almost without number will be made. It seeuiB to be conceded on all hands that " Prince" John Van Buren will be appointed Attorney General in place of General Barker, who retires. This will be a popular appointment; lor as yet no one has been lound to make objection. It may not be over pleasing to Col. Webb " ot the regular army;" but his opinions upon any subject are now regarded evtry where, by every body,as entitled to the least possible weight and consideration. Some other State offices may become vacant. A newspaper gossip says that" Major Flagg will probably be l called to the Treasury Department by Mr. Polk " This dependF. One of our moBt wise and know ing politicians has offered to bet odds that Levi Woodbury of New Hampshire, will be the man tor I this place It is probable, however, that all these matters are based mostly on speculation. But upon thissubiect a wager has been made that Levi Wood burv, George Bancroti, B. F. Butler and Robert | Armstrong will be members of the Cabinet after the fourth of March next. . . We learn here that Judge Kent's anticipated re signation has set several gentlemeu in your city in motion. Is it true that there are so many applicants as issiven out 1 J. W. Edmonds, J. S. Bosworth, D. S. Cowdrey, C. Dewitt, we are told, are the most prominent candidates, from the fact that they are the most active and earnest in their efforts. It is hinted that a legal srentleman ot your city, whose name begins with a K, and sounds something like Kent, a sterling democrat, a modest man, a lawyei of some twenty years standing, and a tried person al friend of the (Governor, will be offered the place of Circuit Judge. He has no petitions in circula tion, and it is shrewdly supposed that none are ne cessary in his case. The Attorney General has gone to Columbia county, to see after the Indians, and other vaga bonds in that quarter. The Private Secretary of the Governor has also departed for the same re gion. The combined efforts ot these two may iov aibly effect wonders; not so great wonders, how evf r, as would be effected by the judicious action of some three hundred qu,Ut armed men. Unlets this " anti-rent" business is nipped in the hud, there will be great trouble; more, perhaps, than can be now foreseen. Yours, truly, H. Baltimore. [Correspondence of the Herald.] Baltimore, Dec. 23, 1844 Rev. Dr. lorrey Again?" Blouom ol Nativeism"? Baltimore Bar, fyc. Dear Sir The city court held a special session this morn ing, for the purpose of hearing the arguments on the motion for arrest ol judgment, and for a new trial in the case of Rev. Charles Torrey. This individual was indicted and convicted under an act of Assembly of April, 1827, chap. 15, which contains two sections, inflicting a very different penally, where the party involved is a freeman or b slave. The arguments of Reverdy Johns in, the counsel for Torrey, were principally founded on the ground, that the indictments under which the traverser was convicted, did not aver his being a freeman or a slave, and that one and the same oflence of "enticing, persuading and assisting slaves to run away," was split up by the prosecu tion in three distinct indictments. Mr. Johnson in the course of his address took occasion to vxodi cate himself from the imputation of sympathizing with the principles of abolitionism, stating in po_ lite, but decided terms, that the opinion expressed in one ot our letters to you, were based on a rnis apprehension ot the spirit ot his defence, and thai there be none who differ more absolutely from the opinions entertained on thiB point by his client, than he himself. After this open confession on his part, we correct with pleasure our judgment aboui the faith of the able counsel, to which we had been led, with many others, by his own, at leasi very ambiguous language. The prosecuting attorney,with great warmth and much spirit, tried to prove that the motion wat without foundation and depending but on the erro neous opinion of the unity of the offence,. Tht Court adjourned at 2 o'clock, A. M-, until Satur day, when he will give his decision. Apropos. Reverdy Johnson will, in all probability, ji'mj into thesenatorial chair?yet the matter is Bttll very doubtlul?and if the Assembly in Annapolis will use their power with the greatest circumspection, we should not wonder it he would find in his friend, Z.

We will aBk no prools, and will even coucede the truth of the substantial part of these declamations, but only show by a few words the abrurdity ana injustice of those complaints. Is the editer of that "native blossom" ignorant ot the fact that the principal fund ot the almshouse* in Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, <tec , con sists of the contributions ol these foreigners them selves, who have for this end to pav a tax of two dollars per head, before they are allowed to set a foot on thiB shore. And that this tax ie more than sufficiently answering its purpose, we bIihII show you by an illustration A German association,, embracing some of the most respectable and wealthiest familiest in this city, have scv eral times made the offer to the magistrate, b) founding an appropriate establishment to take them selves care for all their destitute countrymen,it the city would assign to them that tax of two dollars, which those people of their nation have to pay on landing ; but the magistrate declined the offer?ta pienti satis. In one of these days we shall hnd muse to pre pare for you a "natural history" of the Baltimore oar, that in respect to i's originality, authentic source.-, and variety ot specimens, shall exceed even " Cuvier's" celebrated history of the " quat ruvtdes" on both hemispheres!

I saw in your paper this morning an article signed " A Subscriber," m which he solicits you "to write an article, in your* severest vein, on the avarice of wealthy ship-owners, like those of the late Alaba mian." Now, sir, 1 am a sailor, and was for two years in the employ of E D. Hurlbut?teCo .owners of the late Alabamian. I can testify, and I ihink almost every man that has sailed in their employ can do the same, that the house of E. D. Hurlbut & Co. is one of the most liberal houses in New York ; and no ships leave this port better fitted, in every sense, from the trucks 'o the cook s coppers, than do the ships of E. D. Hurlbut ic Co. Every person wno has made himself acquainted with the circumstances relating to the loss of the Alabami an knows that her best boat was lost shortly alter leaving Leghorn; nnd I should recommend your philanthropic "SubBctiber," il his object is to bene fit travellers and sailors, (which 1 doubt,) to fully inform himself on the Btibject, and then come cut in his "severest vein."

Notice had been riven ot a meeting at that place, to be addressed by Dr. Bough ton, (Big Thunder) who was to discuss the title of the Livingstons to the lands which they hold. It being un derstood that large numbers dressed in Indian < isjruise from this ?nd Ken.selaer county, would he in attendance' much excitement was created, and many of our citizens as well us those ot the udjoining towns, turned out to the meeting At an early hour the people began to assemble at the place of roeeting-those antl renters who bad dresses met in the bouse to put on their disguises. Alter having equipped themselves in Indian style, ail being armed wuh pistols, swords, and other d-adiy weapons they salhed out in singlefile.whooning.yelling andaaking all kinds of noises, and at intervals as they reached the piazza, firing eff their pistols into the air.

On being asked why they came to these meet ing* armed, he replied that he had heard Sheriff had summoned a posso to attend the meet in ru, arrest him, and they h id come prepared to re?ist him ?? Be.wean 3 and 4 o'clock in the afternoon, the first inteili genceof this outrage was received in this city, and pro duced great excitement and commotion, and as there were many confl cting reports the Sheiiff deemed it his duty, to repair to the place of meeting and obtain all the particulars in regard to the murder He then lore,in com pany with Joseph D Monell, Esq and the District Attor ney, started for Smokey Hollow. On their wuv they met Deputy Sheriff Si dg wick of Stockport, and John 8 Ana I uic, K.q. of this city, and also Ambrose Hoot, Esq of Claverack, who being informed by the Sheriff of his ob ject in going out. concluded that they would turn round and accompany him back. On r. aching the bouse thev found that most of the people had dispersed, but wrre in. formed that ' Big Thunder" was stilfin the house. The Sheriff resolved at once to arrest him; after lookieg through the lower rart of the house, he went up stainT and on going into the ball room found him surrounded bv a number ol Irieiidi conversing, not knowinr it ann#ftr? that the Sheriff was in the house. Aftor maWnTthe arrest the Sheriff commanded the asaistance of those present m enforcing the law. Dr. Boughton demanded to u e.w" arreit9d- tbe 8henfl' told him, and said that he must go along with him; they then started down stairs, and on reaching the piazza, he began to hold the swi<re,inA ff* ?f" b3inf Pu*hed forward by ?lbJr,# and hi? Mentis towards the carriage, he called upon the Anti-Renters and wanted to know if they were going to see him arrested? At this a rush ??en*ral mele? ensued, which lasted fromnae half to three quarters of an hour, during which Dr. Boughton drew his pistol twice and threatened to Ore, and he was called upon by some of his friends to shoot the sheriff. Mr. Monell and the District Attorney app aled to the crowd, and told them of the con sequence it their resisting the sheriff, and that most of them were known, and that if they did not de sist at once they would be visited with the severest pen alties of the law. This appeared to calm down the tur bulent spirit and the sheriff succeeded in getting his nri soner into the carriage. This done, the sheriff fuccved ed in arresting Mortimer C. IJeldhig, of Rensselaer for. merly of Herkimer county, who is called 'Little Thun ier,? and also Samuel A Wheeler, ol Taghkanic. both of whom had been very active in opposing the shcrift'in ma kio^ the arrest of Dr. Boughton. The prisoners worn ,br<J"?ht ft a"d committed to jail. On being examined in thei Jail, there was found on Belding a dirk knife a .28?u . set ?' "thimble rigs," thus showing that he was not only prepared for gambling, but for riot ?^e-Jemer^nC, -he aPP9a" t0 ^ the most depe ?te of the gang. No weapons were found on Wheeler. The pistol or Dr Boughton was taken lrom him soon after being put in the carriage. On Thursday morning beiore daylight, the Sheriff again paid a visit to the scene of action of the previous evening, and found tho dis guise worn by Big Thunder, and alto ai rested Esau .raig, who interposed and endeavored to prevent him from arresting the prisjners the previous evening. The examination of these men has been going on for the last three days before Judges Peck. Wifcoxfon and Wrt together with the Recorder of the city, at the Court house. The prosecution is conducted by Theodora Mil ler. E?q., District Attorney, assisted by Henry Iloge boora, E*q-> the prisoners are defended by James S(orm Esq , of this city, and Henry Y.. Hayner, E?q., of Troy' We forbear going into the testimony at present. The excitement, however, in the city and county is intense as threats have been thrown out that the prisoners thai! ho rescued at all hazards, and if resistance m offered, that 'hey will fire the city. For tho last few days all h" been excitement?public meetings hive been held to <V vi*e means to defend our city, and largo numbers have enrolled their names and armed themselves to be roadv at a moment's warning.
