NEW YOKE HERALD. SECOND EDITION. New York, Wednesday, January 8, IMS* Uovernor Wrlght'i Ueuagc We received the Message of Gov. Wright at one o'clock this morning, through Pomeroy dc Co.'a Express, and inserted the greater portion of it in the first edition ot the Herald. The second edition contains the entire document. The Annexation Question?Its Complicated Position. The position :mto which the question of the an nexation of Tr,xaa has now been placed is begin ning to excit'jta great deal of attention, much epe culation, a nd unbounded quantities of nonsense and silirne as, with some small portions of philoso phy to di versify its character. For one week this questior, has been debated in the House of Repre sentati yes, and the several branches and cliques of the t> no great parties in that body have begun to indi cate their tendencies to sueh an extent as to oor aplicate, to an infinitely greater extent than OVA*, the principal issue involved. The question of annexation is, indeed, now ap proachiug a position altogether different from and nnuch more embarrassing than that which it was anticipated it would assume in the last session of Congress, when it was rejected by a large majority in the Senate. There are now mixed up with the question of annexation, personal ambition?the rivalry of cliqruu in the democratic party?the ef forts of the whigs to re-acquire power?the deve lopement of a eij.w party of abolitionists in the North?ami a variety of other collateral issues and elements, all of which have tended to confuse, if | not who'jy to defeat ultimate annexation, and thus to plant the seeds of a feud between the North and South,,that never can be reconciled, and that may lead to a final dismemberment of the Union. Already a large portion oi the democracy an'i their representatives in New York and Fiew England are beginning to cut their ori ginal party connection with the Southern States, *in consequence of the position and policy of Mr. Calhoun, since he become Secretary of State, on this very question. The organs of Mr. Van Burea and Silas Wright in this region of the Union, and the representatives of the same section in Congress are begianing to indicate a settled purpose of throw ing obstacles in the way of annexation, not be cause they are opposed to the simple question itself, but because they have an hostility to the position of Mr. Calhoun, and a dread of his increasing in fluence in consequence of the particular line of poliey which he has adopted in regard to this great great measute. If this sectional feud in th'. demo cratic party should come to any distinct and posi tive head, and finally result ia the defeat of annex ation itself, it will give a triumph to the abolition ists of the North, and to a certain portion of the whigs,which will re-act with extraordinary power on the Southern States, and thus open the way for the accomplishment ot their purposes as shadowed forth by Mr. McDufiie in the Senate, in his allu sions to two or three distinct confederacies, about a year ago. We thus merely glance at the difficulties now surrounding this question of annexation. It would require columns on columns to explain the mis takes on all sides which have led to this complica tion of disorders as affecting the annexation ot Texaspersonal rivalry?ambition?passion?par ty feeling, have been all.mixed up with this matter, and formed the great csubo cut of which this diffi culty has sprung. Whether the House of Represen tatives or the present Congress will settle the ques tion, seems to us very problematical. We do not believe that it will be possible for the different sections of the democratic party to unite in any plausible scheme so as even to have it pass through the House of Representatives; and it is very evi dent that the whigs are enjoying the uncomforta ble position of their antagonists and will avail them selves, to.the fullest extent, of the oppoitunity to complicate still more thisqueslion, and cast it, with all its difficulties and complications, upon the new administration which will assume power on the 4th of March next. On every hand we see diffi cul y and danger. Tun Delinquent States ?The various legisla tures of the delinquent and petty larceny States are beginning to assemble in their several houses and chambers of legislation. We include in these States, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Mississippi, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, and, perhaps, one or two others. The question now very naturally occurs, what are these States, in their representa tive assemblies, about to do by way of redeeming their character before the civilized world 1 There is not one of these States, from broad, fertile, and wealthy Pennsylvania to the poorest in the west, that has not ample property where with to pay the interest of its debt as regularly as any honest man in Christendom. And yet, with an effrontery that is not surpassed by that of the basest rogues in the State Prison,they meet year after year, and violate every principle of duty and obligation, as men and as citizens, as Americans and as Chris tians. They have converted their halls of legisla tion into cells of pick-pockets and thieves and highway robbers. The morals which prevail in such places are the morals of State Prisons and Penitentiaries. Do these States and these Legisla tures imagine that the memory of their conduct can ever be effaced from men's minds 1 Do they really aupposif that the execrations of the widows and orphans, whom they have plundered both in the old and in the new world, will ever cease to ring in the ears of all just men of the present and succeeding generations 1 Episcopal Theological Seminary.?It has been for some time understood, that the general condi tion of this nursery tor the education of young men intending to devote themselves to the mi nistry, was by no means healthy in the orthodox sense of the term, and that a confederacy between certain high Roman Catholic authorities and se veral of the students, has been in progress for the purpose of revolutionising the system under which the Seminary was established. Yesterday was the day appointed to investigate the truth ot such se rious allegations, and three of the Bishops, who formed part of the judges upon the trial of Doctor Onderdonk were selec'.cd as visitors upon this oc casion. Whether from a disinclination to submit their own views to public scrutiny, or from a de sire, alter the arduous and painiul investigation, to retire to the recesses of their respective dioceses, the fact is evident, that neither of the three Bishops delegated for that object, attended the investiga tion appointed to take place on the 7ih. Upon enquiry at the door .of the chapel, we understood that the faculty of the institution were engtged in the investigation, and now* othert?that several of the students were undergoing a scrutiny of their doctrinal principles, and that all but the parties in terested were excluded. The members who com prise " the faculty," we shall obtain and publish. At present we ean name the Kev. Drs. Anthon, Higbee, (the secretary of the board,) Haight, and Ogilby. Under such auspices, the truth, the whole truth, and nothing bat the truth will be revealed, and the charoh and the public relieved from farther embarrassment. AaaivAL ?The Hon. Geo. M. Dallas, Vice-Pre* sident elect, arrived here last night, and remains at the City Hotel, the guest of the Tammany So ciety or Columbian order. Sooth Carolina and Massachurrtts ? Gover nor Briggs of the latter State, has transmitted to the legislature s message relative to the affairs between these two States; and especially relative to the mission of Mr. Hoar. The latter gentleman iB sustained in the course he pursued in the busi ness. City Reform.?Mayor's Talk on the Streets. ?Alms House Disclosures,?Really the proceed ings in the stated meetings of the Corporation are now beginning tobe exceedingly interesting The aspect of the doings on last Monday night, inclu ding the talk of the Mayor on the necessity of re paving Broadway, and the debate on certain cu rious " oil contracts," present one of the most amusing, interesting, and astounding developments of the kind which we have seen dnnng the present regime of this extraordinary reform party. Of his Honor the Mayor we have the highest opinion as a man?as a printer?as a publisher?as a joker, not original, to be sure?and as a capital hand at making speeches and sending messages.? We wish we could say as much for him in the way of acting and doing in reference to city reform. There is not a subject connected with the municipal government of the city, on which he has uot discoursed, in the shape of messages, withja great deal of discretion and good sense, and with most commendable propriety and fitness. His (last message, on pavingl Broadway, is most capital. It is an admirable message. His plan for paving that great avenue of mud, cart-ruts, and quagmires, is the same that we havo frequently recommended, and we are really glad to see that at last he has come to talk upon the subject. But, alas ! it ib all talk?all joke?all jest. Nothing is meant by all this talk. The present Corporation can talk, but they never dream of acting. Let us think over this again. Are we not too fasti Are we not guilty of injustice to those men 1 We believe we are. We find that it is only a certain class of subjects on which they talk, and with such concealed dry humor as to lead people to think that they are in earnest. But in relation to certain profitable things, such as contracts to supply the Aims-House, and various other com fortable little perquisites and pickings, there is a great deal of acting and practical effort which the public never dreamed of before. Who has forgot ten the famous Alms-House report which waB pub lished a tew days ago, and paraded before the world as containing some of the most wonderful develop ments?even beyond those of Maria Monk, or those about to be given to the world under the sanction of the college of Bishops?in re ference to the enormities of both the old parties in the management of the Alms Housel Every one stood aghast. But how small and ridiculous are the revelations of that report, compared with those afforded in the course of that extraordinary debate in which Alderman Charlick discloses things of which we had no conception?disclosures more than sufficient to cover with shame and confusion any party that attempted to govern a community of intelligent and honest men. We have not one word to say on these revela tions. Just read them. Go to the. Corporation meetings and hear the debates, and if, after listen ing to the disclosures there, the people of this city can re-elect the present party, why let them do it ?in God's name let them do it! American Diplomatists in Europe.?What is the reason that the American ministers and agents in Europe never attempt to.defend their country? to explain and vindicate its institutions?or toward ofi the blowB aimed at its character and honor by the European press 1 One would suppose that Mr. Everett, our Minister at fcendon, and Mr. Walsh, the American Consul at Paris?gentlemen of intellect and literary talent?would not stand idly by, in those greatjcapitala and centres of Euro pean civilization, and iee the American character | and American institutions abused, without remon strance and reproof. The truth is, that these gen tlemen belong to a class of the literati who toady the great men of Europe, and who, by their con duct abroad, justify the misrepresentations so olten thrown on this country in the old world. It is time that a change was made in the appointments oi American agents in all parts of the world. Italian Ofera?'The season seems about to close brilliantly, and that claes of our citizens who can best afford to keep the Italian opera alive in this country appear to be taking hold of the matter in earnest. Last night probably the largest audience ever assembled in this city attended the magnifi cent Stmiramide. Every seat, above and below, was occupied, and some hundred and fifty gentle men stood out the entire piece, ranged along the walls and in the aisles. The performances were well received, and the principal characters greeted with frequent and cordial applause. The celebrated duett in the second act between I Borghese and Pico was encored and repeat ed in a capital manner, contrasting the so prano of Borgheae with the contralto of Pico with great effect. The whole performance went off in the most gratifying style, and we have never seen an audience better pleased. Oa Thursday and Friday evenings?the two last nights of the season?Semiramide will be re- J peated. The Eiohth of January Ball at Tammany Hall.?Hon. George M. Dallas, Vice-President elect; Col. Win. H. Polk, of Tennessee; Commo dores Stewart and Elliot; General Lamar, Commo dore Moore, and Honorable Mr. Smith, of Texas; Gen Darcey and Hon. John R. Thompson, of New Jersey; Mr. Barnard, of Nashville; Recorder Vaux, Col. Lee,Hon. Chas J. Ingersoll, of Phila delphia ; General Saudford.and other military and naval officers, are among those who will positively be present, besides many other distinguished gen tlemen expected. New York Historical Society.?A very in teresting meeting of this body was held last evening, in their rooms in the University, Waahington Square, when reports of the proceed ings of the different branches of the institution for the past year were read, and officers for the ensu ing year elected, &c.; but in consequence of the press of other matter, and the lateness of the hour at which the proceedings terminated, we are obliged to omit a pretty full report we had prepared, but shall publish it in our next. Our Last Gale.?The snow storm on Monday night was severer than we supposed it was. Since then, however, every thing has become quiet, and what snow fell has been carried off by a rail of la the storm, a fore and aft schooner went ashore on Sands' Point, but was assisted off. We learn from Captain Allen, of the Providence, that the steamboats Belle and Narraganselt came to anchor, in the evening, under Hart's Island, where they remained in safety, and proceeded the next morning. . ft is stated by Captain Janvrin, of the Reward, that it blew very fresh in ihe Seund, accompanie by a thick snow storm. In passing Sands' Point, yesterday morning about 8 o'clock, he saw a large bark, painted black, ashore, head on, and totally dismasted?all her spars lying alongside; had gone on.during the previous night. She was, however, got ofi, and was at anchor waiting tor assistance. It is supposed to be the Sophia Walker, Codmaii, which cleared at Boston, about a week ago, for New York, to load for Trieste. The Tbxians in the City.?On Thursday, the veteran, General Lamar, ex-President of Texas, and Commodore Moore, of the Texisn Navy, will receive calls at the Governor's Room from twelve till two o'clock. Mayor Harper and ex-Mayor i Morris, and Wm. S. Pierson, E?q., Texian Consul, will introduce the citizens who are disposed to call. In the evening, these distinguished gentlemen will attend the Park Theatre, where they have been politely invited by the manager. New Buildings in Washington.?The capital seems to be rapidly on the increase. The ave rage number of new buildings erected from 1820 to 1830, was 103?from 1880 to 1840, 80? from 1840 to 1840, only, hall the decimal period, pt! Thh Cape or Bishop Ohdibdonk?The public excitement with respect to this case is increasing every day. Not only in this city and throughout this diocese, but in the surrounding cities, and as far, indeed, as the intelligence has gone, the ex citement is spreading with the greatest rapidity and attaining the highest intensity. Dr. Coleman, .of Philadelphia, a highly respectable and esteemed clergyman of the Episcopal Church, came out publicly last Sunday, in his pulpit, with a protesta tion against the decision of the Court of Bishops, and a declaration of his confidence in the inno cence of Bishop Onderdonk. In this city and diocese the Bishop's friends are numerous, and determined to sustain him at all hazards. The "Standing Committee" of the dio cese had a meeting yesterday, and elected the Hon. Chiel Justice Jones to fill the vacancy occa sioned by the death of T. L. Ogden, Esq. The committee now consist of the Rev. Drs. Berrien, MeVicker, Lyle, and Wainwright, Judge Jones, Floyd Smith, Murray Hoffman, and Gulian C. Verplanck, Esqs. The committee is known to be decidedly and warmly in favor of the Bishop.? Eminent jurists have declared that the finding and sentence of the Bishops were illegal, and altogeth er the case is likely to lead to very curions results and developments. The Appletons have, it is said, purchased the notes sf evidence, which will be published imme diately. The volume will be large, and contain, besides the really important testimony, an immense amount of matter of no earthly interest, and which will never be read. A publication will be made contemporaneously by the friends of the Bishop, and probably including the very able and elaborate argument presented by his counsel. The publica tion of the evidence is very loudly condemned by some of the papers. The National Intelligencer, speaking on the subject, says : ? A Christian Bishop has, ai our readers know, been ar raigned and tried by bis peers in New York, on charges, it is stated, of inebriety and gross improprieties o: beha f has very vior towards certain ladies. The triaf has very properly been conducted in private, and has resulted in the convic tion, and, of consequence, in the suspension of the ac cused from his high oiiice These occasional instances guilt and weakness on the part of Ministers ol the Clos et g' pel, pel, are unfortunate for the cause of religion and morals, in so far as, by scandalizing the professors, they give a Handle to'the dissolute and the infiael for assaulting reli rion itself. Much, therefore, as such examples are to be deplored, the bad effects of the preaent case, it seems, are not to stop with the conviction of the offender ; for, ac cording to the New York press, the House of Bishops have decided to let all the testimony on the trial, with ita revolting particulars, and all the arguments of counsel, be printed, and go to the public, lor the gratification cf the lioantious and the prurient, and the edification of the young and pure into whose hands the book may chance to fall! Certainly one of the most singular incidents connected with the affair has been the hawking about town of the notes of the trial of the Bishops, who are, it seems, determined to turn the preva lent excitement to as good account as possible. If the manuscript be not yet disposed of, we would suggest the expediency of putting it up at auction, or raffling it off at so much a chance. Municipality op Boston.?The government of Boston has had to be provided for by a special act of the legislature, in consequence of the non-elec tion of a Mayor and a sufficient number of Alder men. Those who were chosen are to regulate af fairs until a|fuli complement of officers are elected. More Munificence in Boston ?The Mercan tile J ournal states that the Massachusetts Charita ble Mechanic Association, of Boston, have pur chased a portion of the Boott estate in Bowdoin Square, and intend to erect a spacious Hall for the uses of the Association. At the Annual Meeting, on Thursday evening, a letter was read from Mar tin Brimmer, the worthy Mayor of the city, in which he stated that a gentleman, whose name he was not at liberty to mention, proposed to present to the Associaflon for this object the sum of twenty thousand dollars, provided a like addi tional sum shall be raised, and on condition also that there shall be, in the building, rooms provided suitable for a school, to be kept at least five months in the year, for the benefit of Mechanics' appren tices. Mr. Brimmer volunteered to procure the ad ditional tweuqpthousand dollars, and rr?rkod that the object might be considered as accom plished. Late from Havana.?The steamer Alabama j made her last trip from Havana to New Orleans in sixty hours. She arrived at the latter place on the 27th, with dates from the former to the 24th ult. inclusive. The correspondent of the Picaftme writes from Havana under date of 24th, as follows:? Politically there is no alteration here. The Governor has gone on a visit to tne different cities on the southern coast of our island, asjfar as St. Jago. It is onlya flying trip, just to stir tip the liens and see that everything is in order. He is so much of a martinet that we shall not be surprised to learn that he blows up a breese among some folks in those parts. A few days since a royal decree was published here, being a move on the Spanish financial chrquer-board to wards repudi?I would say expurgation. It has for seve ral years been the custom of the Spanish ministry to anti cipate the surplus revenue of Cuba by selling to those patterns of honesty (1) the London bankers, drafts on our treasury for such sums and on such terms as these would negotiate, which drafts were duly accepted here on pre sentation, and paid in the order in which they were drawn as fast as funds accumulated, accruing in the mi an while the pretty interest of 8 per cent per annum. The running amount having reaoned to about eight mil lions of dollars, the above mentioned order was promulgated, decreeing the conversion of these unpaid drafts into a 3 per cent alack, at the rate of 100 lor SO, interest payable at home?thus rubbing eut that long sum and cleaning our slate to cypher sgairflon, at ambition or lntereat may dictate to the Minis ter of the moment. We can but lament thia unhappy state of things; and yet every son of Cube deeply ieeis how much better he is situated than if he were under the merciless claws ol England's oolonial policy. This lat ter event we imagine tar more distant tnan John Quincy Adams would seem to think, if certain newspaper pars graphs that have lately been going the rounda in the Uni ted State* are true. That England should force Spain to sell Cuba?ior it would ba nothing better than forcing? because two Republica ohooee to unite under one federal government, and that thoaa Republica, by thua uniting, would loose the power of preventing this mighty rival from assuming an armed surveillance over one hall of their sea coast, seems to us rather preposterous: and if Mr. Adams thinks that in the (apposed event England would justly acquire, und the United Stetea justly loae, the rights now supposed to be held by either, it strike* us that his ideaof "justice"Is a very strange one. For our part, we set this down as only another of the vagaries ol "the old man eloquent." Spain never will loose the hold she has upon Cuba so long as she can by any possible means retain it; and when such no longer is tne case, the following signifi cant language, hold by the first citizens and a portion of the authorities hereto the Home Government a few short years since, when the question of meddling with slavery here at the urgent request of England was mooted, clear ly indicates the courts that Cuba would hold :?"It ii not to be presumed that any white men williubmitto so hard a fate ; they will prefer to emigrate to foreign countries, to cam their livelihood and aave the Uvea ot their child reu, if they do not previously adopt the course which a state of desperation would prescribe " That Cuba will ever peaceably be England's, knowing the people as we think wo do, we oaa never believe. It is said that the British Government have demanded of the Spanish Minlstohmroots of the accnsation* made by the authorities hero against Mr. Turnbull, of implication in the late plot* here, in order that, ii true, ho may be displaced from tho poet he now hold*. Christmas is coming, and every body thet is sny body is leaving town for the country We have five conseoutive holiday* from to-moitow. A few days since the feast of the pat-.on saint of one ef the snbnrbs oi our city was cele brated in e manner somewhat singular. Besides the pro cession. ???sins.singing, Ac . a smell fort was erected near the c iunrh, of frame work, oovorvd with canvass painted in water color* to Imitate real stone, and matned with a four-oder e six pounder, twe men end a boy.

It caused quite a lenaatiop, being the first iaatanoe of the kind since 1834?the lew preventing noviciates entering couvents end monasteries having been lately annulled. The revenue Koam cutter Legate arrived here this morning. Eastern Mail.?We learn from Dr. Hollenbeck, the special mail agent, that the Eastern Mai), due yesterday at 8 A. M. per steamer Worcester, aid not arrive until 12 o'clock, in conaequence of 'he snow storm of Monday night. It brought no news. Messaor of the Governor of Maine.?'This State paper is principally devoted to local aflairs. It leans to Texas, because the late election resulted in favor of annexation. Foreign Honors to Native Savans.?Profesaor Cle.avetand, of Bowdoin College, hns recently been elected a member of the Royal Sooiety ol Northern Antiquaries, at Copenhagen. Central America.?According to the Havana papers. Central America continues to be the theatre of bloody ware. __________ 00 ft <s reported that Mr. T- W Robeaon, American < onsul at Nanta M.rthn,on Bpsuith Man , died on the 4th of Dooomber Uot Further from Hudson ?The Northern mail, which was delayed on Monday by the storm, arri ved yesterday noon. We find in the Albany Ar got of Monday a lew further particulars relative to the state of things in Hudson. There was no particular change in the anti-rent affairs at Hudson. Despatches received at the Ad jutant General's office, state that on Friday evening a detachment of 25 men from the Burgesses, ander Gapt. King and Lieut. Franklin Townsend, and 25 men from the Rep. Artillery, under Capi. Cooke and Lieut. Frederick Townsend, left Hudson with Deputy Sheriff Sedgwick, for Borne remote part of the county, to make arrests, and had not returned on Saturday at 11 A. M. On the same day (Friday) a detachment from the German Guard, under Capt. Kraack, accom panied the Sheriff to Mellenvills, and took posses sion of a field-piece and two kegs of powder that were in the hands of anti-renter*. Adjutant General Niven returned from Hudson on Saturday afternoon. Commissary Gen. Storms came up on the same day. No part of the force has been withdrawn. No news yesterday from Hudson. Hudson, Saturday, A. M.?There is little re markable to write about. Nothing matenal has transpired since my last to vary the quiet state of things which has prevailed during the week - Some things, however, have occurred, that may be of interest at least to your city readers. In the absence of any call upon the military for real service, on Thursday orders were issued from head quarters for a general parade, which came of) in the afternoon. Our citizens have never before had the plea-ure of seeing so extensive a display of uniformed soldiers, and the feeling of admiration, as well as the sense of security which it inspired, could not be mistaken. First came the troop of cavalry from New York. They are a noble-looking and effective corps?evidently adepts in riiilitarv tactics. NexT came the Albany Republican Artil lery, in complete uniform. After marching through the principal streets,they I were reviewed by Gen. Storms, in presence of a large concourse of citizens; when they dispersed to their respective quarters. Although no further arrests have been made, an imoortant capture was made yesterday by the She riff. (.He left yesterday morning, with a detachment of Cavalry, for one of the back towns, and return ed in the afternoon with one of the pieces of can non which the " Indians" had in their possession. This is a trophy which is well worth the day's work. Another detachment, consisting of the Albany Republican Artillery, and a part of the Burgesses Corps, left last evening, under the command of Capt. Cooke and Lieut Frederick Townsend of the Artillery, on an excursion of about seventeen miles. They had a hail storm accompaniment on the way, with high wind and some ram. They had not returned at 8 o'clock this morning. I learn that they are in pursuit of a desperate fellow named Hutchins, who, it is said, has a field piece planted before his door, and is otherwise prepared to make a formidable resistance. If " at home," he will be taken, and brought in, and no mistake. I yesterday availed myself of an opportunity to visit" Big Thunder"?and was particularly struck with the inapplicability of his nom de guerre. He is a young man of genteel appearance and prepos sessing address, ana the reverse of every thing in dicated by "thunder," big or little, when I en tered, he was reading, but immediately arose. He was introduced to me as " Big Thunder." He immediately corrected my attendant, saying, evi dently annoyed by the reminiscences associated with it, that that was not his name, but Dr. Boughton. He was asked how he felt. To which he replied, " 1 do not feel well, either at heart or in body. I have left a young wife and infant child at home. The thought of that ia enough"?and here he burst into tears. He appears to be, and no doubt is, penitent, and has given proofs of it, by delivering up his memorandum book, from whicn the Sheriff has been enabled to ascertain the names and whereabouts of the ringleaders in the anti-rent rebellion. There is a rumor that troops are to be sent into Greene county to-day. I know not for what pur pose. Hudson, Jan. 3.?The war in this county ap pears to be about over, at Iea9t with some of the tribes. The Copake tribe were yesterday address ed by Mr. Monell and Mr. Miller, and signified a complete surrender. Some of the Ancram tribe in attendance refused to submit, and still clamored about " title." In the mean time, the durable and life lsase tenants are all paying up the wheat and fowls. The arrests are going on, and the cavalry are bringing in the stray cannon about the county While we are thus approaching order, we are constantly hearing of the preparations going on in Greene, Albany, and Schoharie, for a formidable resistance to your authorities, whenever you are prepared to move. It may be all rumor. Many persons here doubt the sincerity of the present pro fessions of our tenants. They think, that it is only a ruM to gain time; but we will hope for the best.
