NEW YORK HERALD. New York, Friday, Alnreti 48. 1HI?, PICTORIAL WEEKLY HERALD. $reu<; in the New Comedy, "Fashion." The Weekly IIIuttrated HtraLl, to be publuhed to-morrow morning, will contain a very beauiilul engraving ot one of. the most interesting scenes in tlie new comedy bo successful at the Park, with portrait* of Miss Ellis, Mr. Chippendale, and Mr. Cusp. Price only t?4 cents. Trial of Mr. Fairchild.?We continue'to-day the report ot the proceedings in the case of the liev. Mr. Fairchild. What a strange and melan choly position does this report present! If all that is testified to be true, it would appear that religion has been used in this case for the same corrupt pur poses that the Mormous ure charged with out west. The exposure,however,ot these gross hyporcriaies aud crimes of prolcssedly religious teachers will have a salutary effect. They are merely acciden tal, and their exposure and punishment will tend to preserve the morals ol the community in a sound condition. , The meeting at Tammany Hall Last Night ?Singular Foaltlon of i'artles In the Char ter Klertlon. We give, in another column, a full and faithful report ot the democratic ratification meeting at Tammany flail, last evening. It will be seen that " passed ofl harmoniously, which was cot exactly nnticiiated. it was apprehended, previous to the meeting, that cdvuntage would be taken of the oc casion, by some of the office-bcgging cliques, to in troduce resolutions denunciatory of the Collector of the port, and relating to other matters, foreign to the ostensible purposes of the meeting. If such a design was entertained, it is apparent that it was subsequently deemed most prudent to abandon it. Potent elements of disturbance were there in abun dance, but no voice called?or rather no voice was permitted to call-forth the angry spirits, and the brief half hour expired without a single gale. We Hre a good deal disappointed in this meeting. The democrats have strangely dodged the " na tive" question, and Mr. oelden, and the whigs as sociated with them, still occupy alone that lofty position of undisguised hostility to religious intole rance and persecution, which they assumed on the occasion of the memorable meeting in National Hall. Just let us contrast the speech of the solita ry orator at Tammany with that of Mr. Selden at National Hall, and what inference forces itself upon the mind, as we look on this picture and on lhall Why, it seems as it the old democratic spirit of civil and religious liberty had shifted its abiding place?that the democrats had deserted the strong vantage ground t>f their ancient faith, and that the whigs, enlisted under the flag of Mr.Selden, have become the real progressive democracy of the land. What I No loud, indignant, powerful voice from Tammany against that accursed ming ling of religion with politics?no withering rebuke of that foul principle of prosciiptive bigotry and besotted intolerance that has now openly entered the field and contends for the government of this city, and the means of perpetuating its evil influ ence throughout the whole land! What can this mean 1 Tt will be thus Been that the parties engaged in this contest do, indeed, occupy a singular position in relation to each other and the great issues in volved. Mr. Selden has fairly taken the ground from under the feet of the old democratic party. He has had the sagacity to meet and grapple with the "native" movement, at the very crisis and in the very manner which ensured for him the appro haliou and sympathy of every intelligent and pa' triotic man in the community. Thus borne upon the tide of enlightened public opinion, he has bold ly and nobly met the great issue of the day and of this contest, exposing and crushing the bigotry, in tolerance, and religious persecution which make up that evil movement called "nativeiBm," whilst Tammany Hall idly prates about the trophies of its last battle field?pours out by its solitary mouth piece some of the old slang of the last Presiden tial contest?and contents itself with a cold allusion to that foul, dark and evil' influ ence which now undisguisedly threatens the permanence of the republic by the organization of a political party on the principles of religious sectarianism. We must say that the old democra tic party has failed, at this crisis, to be faithful to the great duty of the hour, and to own that glori ous principle in its ancient creed, which proclaims the utmost liberty of conscience in all matters of religious belief. Who ia to blame for this sin of omission 1 As suredly not ihe masses of the democratic party. They are as sound as ever. They are as resolutely opposed as ever to any admixture of religion with politics. They are as warmly and devotedly at tached to the great principles of civil and religi ous liberty as they ever have been. But aorae ol their leaders have been too weak and too proud to follow the example of Mr. Selden. What true de mocrat is there whose conscience has not been corrupted by hungering and thirsting after the spoils, or contact with unprincipled cliques, that I can refuse his sanction to the principles avowed by | Mr. Selden, in his famous speech at National Halll Not one. Mr. Selden has, in truth, started aa ori ginal movement in the whig party, on the prin ciples that actuated the first settlers of this Western world, who were all foreigners, and on the princi ples that formed the groundwork of the constitution in 1776, which must be triumphantly successful We care nothing for any political party. We de sire only to see the principles of truth and justice prevail. We see at this moment the prosperity and happiness of this country threatened by a religio political movement, animated by the same spirit that in times past has deluged Christendom with blood, and that has already produced, before our eyes, scenes of bloodshed and conflagration at which humanity shudders ; and when we see this movement met, as it ought to be met, we do not ??op to ask by whom, but at once give them the fulivct measure of our support. Mr. Selden and those i?iociated with him have met this evil move ment in i?>e right spirit?with boldness, fearless ness, and vig?.r Therefore we have given them our support. Ana H|B0> we are persuaded, will the great masses in this el., wh0 think more of the republic than they do of parij. The principles avowed by Mr. Selden are consonant hvh truth, with the constitution of this free laud, and the advancing enlightenment and civilization ol tut They are principles that must flourish on this soil, ano whatever party, or whatever body of men, tails to adhere to them with strict and honor able fidelity, cannot expect to prosper. Let men of every party mark that well. Whio Mkktino in 16rH Street.-!', was an nu,nced in some of the,apPrsof yesterday, that i'litfwy Selden was to speak a meeting of the whigs N l?:h street, last evening, a?d accordingly one of o', reporters was despatched t? chronicle the doings threat. It was not stated wh?re the meeting was to take place, but it w?8 said to be Homewhere in 16,h street. The reporter went to the Sixteen'ii Ward and rushed through 16ih street, and 15th ana 17th streets, and enquired in every direction whtr, the head quarters of the whigs was; but the natives of the ward seemed to be at much in the dark m he was, and it was not unt'i' too late that he dieco'ered that it was in West 18th street.

New Hammiiiee lii.EcrioN.?Nearly full rvgrns ysduo# rttenls ?(dam.) majority to 7lH. The Anti-Kent Trial*.?We refer our reader* particularly to the interesting report* of the anti rent trial* now iroceeding at Hudson. This is (he only journal that has taken the pains to give a report of these proceedings?proceedings which are most intimately connected with the well-being mid order of society and the permanence of our republican institutions. There is now great rea son to appreheud that the insurrectionists will es cape, in consequence ol the prejudices of the jihrort before whom they are tried. Should this be the case we may well entertain lears for the future. The elements of disorganization at present ope rating in the interior of this State will rapidly ex tend themselves. Six or eight counties more may soon be expected to exhibit the same state of re bellion agaiust the laws and the principles o( equity as is now manifested in Columbia county and the adjoining districts. There are large tracts of land out in the western part of this State which were originally brought iuto cultivation by land compa nies, the stockholders briug chiefly residents in Europe, the settlers on which have been paying rent lor many years, but it the anii-rentera on trial at Hudson escape, the probability is that a general repudiation of all rent by the occupiers of these lands will ensue, and the European proprietors lose the whole ol their property, together with the na tive owners here. Some ol the leading members of the whig party in this State own portions ol these lands out west, and they will be sufferers to a large extent by this disorganizing movement, which cannot be put down by foroe, and we very much fear cannot be put down by the civil power. This whole business presents a most lamentable state of things. If " Big Thunder" and his asso ciates escape, as now appears to be exceedingly probable, we hav* no hesitation in saying that we anticipate very disastrous consequences hereafter. The acquittal of these insurrectionists must, inevi tably, be followed by a fresh outburst of disorga nization, rebellion, and outrage, far more extend ed and serious than any that has yet been exhi bited. We really fear that this evil is only in the bud, and that terrible fruits are yet to be de veloped. Mr. Owen's Lectures.?Mr. Owen delivered his Becond lecture on the improvement of society last evening. It was attended by a very crowded andience. Mr. Owen's labors in this philanthropic field commenced as far back as the year 1S15 He was the first manufacturer of American cotton in Great Britain, and in that year he took a very active part in agitating for a free import of the raw material into British ports, and took the lead in the philanthropic movement (or the amelioration of the condition of the persons employed in the cot ton factories of Great Britain. Since that period, his schemes lor benefitting his race having been greatly extended; he has devoted himself with un wearied industry and effort to the work of incul cating his peculiar views in the organization of so ciety, the education of youth, and other topics of practical philosophy. Mr. Owen is, indeed, a very remarkable man, and his lectures are emi nently deserving of atteution. He lectures again this evening at the Minerva Rooms. Theatricals?the Park.?There was a very crowded house at the Park again last night. The chances now seem very fair of the new comedy having a decidedly successful run. A great deal of interest exists respecting it in other cities, and applications have been made for its production in Philadelphia and Boston. RArxTTi'B Concert.?The admirable Rapetti gives his concert on Saturday evening next, previ ous to his departure for Philadelphia on a profes sional tour. The programme is very attractive, embracing all the prominent musical talent in the city; and, as lew artists have so many fnends anc admirors as Rapetti, the concert will, no doubt, be brilliant, and crowded in the extreme.

Instructive Fire.?The extensive and valuable flourVig mill of Robert Ilalsey, on 03*ftgo street, Ithaca, was destroyod by fire a law days since. There was a large quantity o( flour and grain in the mill at the time, all ol -which ia entirely destroyed. Tha wind blow ing in directlsn of the six mile creek saved other proper ty in the village from destruction. The building and s'ock is heavily insured la New York offices, but whe ther to an amount sufficient to cover the loss, we do not learn, About the same time the large Cotton mill at Fall Creek to >k ttrr, hut tli* ilSEtee was extinguished without much damage , 1 lie Great Demoaratte Ratification meeting at Tammany Hall laet Nlnbt-LittU Talk, but Tremendous Ifiiitbuslaam?Captain Itynler* and the " Kmplres" In the field. The meetiDgal Tammany Hall last night to res pond to the nomination of Mr. Havemeyer, was as large and enthusiastic in the gatherings of the uu ternfied democracy usually are. The large room was crowded to excess, and thousands were as sembled out ot doors ready to join in the grand torchlight procession of the "Empire Club." At hall-past 7 o'clock, the meeting was called to order by the nomination of Peter Cooper, Esq , as Chairman, and the following additional officers : MCB PRESIDENTS : Oliver Charlick, Michael Buike, James B Ganetson, Conrad Jordan, James C.

Miller, George F,-shine, John J. Parsells, G-'O W. Varian, John A. Delancey. On taking the chair, amid the loud applause of the meeting, Mr. Cooper said : Fellow citizens?I return you my sincere thanks for the honor conferred upon me, in selecting me to preside over you on this occasion, when you are assembled lo exercise the high and important privilege of deliberating on the men and measures necessary to carry on the government of this great citr. 1 beg you to give your attention to the gentlemen who will address you, and ex plain the object* of the meeting. (Great cheering.) Mr. Wm A. Walkir then stepped forward with thead dreaa cf tho Mayoralty Convention in hia hand Capt Rynders, who waa on the platform, qsietly said? " Remember, there must be no extraneous matter,?stick to the legitimate text." "Oh, yes!" returned Mr. Walker,looking somewhat blue and nervous. "Very well,?all's right,?now go ahead," said the Captain. Mr- Walker then read a long address and reiolutions. We give the latter, which convey the spirit of the former Resolved, That the democratic party is based upon the broad principles cf universal toleration, and absolute ? quality?that it recognises no restrictions on the fnll development and broadest application of these principles: that it takes its position on these grounds: courts invest! cation with regard to them: and wishes to rise or fall by them and them only. Resolved, That in the coming Charter election the de mocratic party pledges itself to an efficient admiuistra tion: the pure use of official patronage: economy in pub lic expenditure: adequate provision for popular educa tion, and the public responsibility of official agsnta. Less than these would be injury to the city, and an injustice to ourselves. Resolved, That in our candidate for Mayor, William F. Havrmweb, we present to the suffrages of the city, an honest, efficient and capable citizen, pledged to guard the interests otthe community, and to carry out the requisite reforms in the administration of the municipal govern ment. Resolved, That we recommend to our democratic fellow citizens in the several wards of the city, union, concilia tion, vigilance and energy. With these, triumph is cer tain?without them a strong cause may bo boaten in de tail. Hth there were loud cries of "Hawkes," " Hawkes,' on which? , ,, , Wricjht Hawkes, Esq., stepped iorward end said-1 second, with all my heart, the adoption of the address and resolutions which hare just been read. I second them because I believe that they contain a sound expression of true democratic doctrine. (Cheering ) I second them because I believe that they contain sentiments calculated to produoe the utmost union in the political action which we are called on to make in the contest on which we have just entered. We have just emerged from a political contest, the importance of which had hardly had a parallel in the history of our country. At a time previous to the last general election, but for a time only, the political horizon were clouded and lowering. Scarci ty could we discern the email speck of blue sky, which gave promise of a glorious future. But we trusted?we had faith?and that unclouded sky at last came. (Cheers.) And hew did it eeme 7 It came through the influence of the noblest principles of the democratic faith?the sur render of private and sectional preferences for one great and common cause. (Cheers.) Yes, my friends, when the wise men of our party, delegated by us, assembled at their wonted National wig-wam in Baltimore, they met with but one object, the country's good?and one deter wsrkout that good. They were ready to bury all private preferences?like the patriarch of old, they were prepared even to offer up their Isaan on the altar of their country's good. (Cheers.) They did make that sacrifice, and like the patriarch they obtained the blessing ?(Cheers.) [Capt Rynders?Yea, poor Van Bu renwasthe lamb led to the slaughter.) (Laughter.) I do not intend to detain you long. I have often spoken within these walls, and their fa miliar echoes fell like pleasant music on my cars.? (Cheers) But lfmust be brief. Allow me to glance at what we have gone through of late. In the lest ejec tion, by g:eat and united exertions, we succeeded against the embattled hoits of federalism, abolitionism, nativeisro, whigism, andi alt the]other isms. (Laughter and loud cheers.) We suaceeded in transplanting from the soil oi Tennessee?from the same soil where Old Jackson was found?(tremendous cheering)?a sapling of the asms tree, and we plaited it at Washington. There will the " Young Hickory" take root and flourish, bringing forth as hard nuts for tie whigs to crack?(great laughter and loud cheers) Btfch, then, tellow citixene, wee the result of the last election We now enter upon a local election, it is well known hat when an army, arrayed in all the pomp and panoplyof war, meets its foe, and geta a regular New Orleana rouflng?(cheers)?in the flight, when una ble to rally and pwsent an unbroken front, they divide end threw thrmicfves into such fortified pieces, on their route, as they may be able to fell back upon. Bo it is in political contests. The whigs, routed and discomfltted in mass, ere now felling back upon the local elections, all over the country: end now, like a certain animal?if I may be allowed the similie?they are burrowing, with their coses in tho earth, ready for us to drag them out. I In the last election we had all serta of foes to fight with. What is the enemy that now presents itself 7 What is lis name, to begin wth 7 I really hardly know what to call ' it. For the presort purpose, however, I mty designate it '?the Native-Anerican-Republicaii-Abolition party."? (Laughter.) First in array come the " natives"?the "native" Amerimn Republican party! (Laughter)? Why, one would luppose, in hearing these " natives" talk, that this was a cointry hundreds and hundred! of Tears old, and that we vere all of the age of Methuselah. These " natives" would I suppose, write the history of this country very mich as the Welch write theirs. It is said that in Wales there exists an ancient history, in which, after describing tie wonderful doings oi his ancestry for a thousand years dewn to the flood, the historian adds a marginal note?"tbout this time the world was created." (Liughter) Nov.onewpuld suppose these "natives" think that we arethe oldest people in the world. But are we not all Amerians, whether, native or foreign born 1 (" Yes," " yes," ind loud cheers.) They demand that when a man comts to this country, he must reside here 2l years before htcan vote- about tha period for which a man is sentexeet to the State Prison for burglary.? (Laughttr.) Wny. I wonder if Daniel O'Connell were to come out here, (fertile cheering from the Irish laborers) or such men, they vould insist on their living here 'Jl years before they cdilil be considered as having coma to maturity. If they ale such ahildren now, I dont know what sort of men thtg would grow up to be. The "native Americans!" I cannsrdly talk senousiy about th*m? but we have got to beat them at the ballot-box. Some honeat democrats jcined them last year, on the faith of their promises. Bit they have broken them all, and loaded us with $-)<>,000 increased taxation. (Cheersi) Then we have the vthigs?that same old coon ! (Laugh tar.) You all know what are its principles [Captnln Rynders-" Ay, andwe felt it in 1840 ") But it's day has gone. S ill it is at in old tricks, and has set np a man, Mr. golden, that wetmce sent to Congress, and we know very well the trickithat he played on us there. Take rare of them?they ?re playing possum?and will strike a bargain with the 'natives," if they can. But we most toe tha maik, and we'll surely beat them (Cheers.) [Captain Rrnoitei?(handing Mr H. a tumbler of inter ?' Here, take somi of this native American brandy. (Roars of laughter ] What is the reason of all thia whig fuss about foreigneta?all thia currving favor with adop ted citizens 7 Why, the whig stock jobbets?the suppor ters of Governor Siward in his policy, which laid this State under a debt forty millions of dollars, are afraid that the hardy foreigners, when they And that they will have no privileges here bnt those enviable ones oi hewing our wood and draw ing onr water, will seek seme more genial shores, and that thns the great works of "internal im provement" will fail (Cheers ) Heoce they now say "down with the natives!" I say again,take care of these whigs. They are Ike the thimble-rigger's pea?here it is?there it is?yon don't know where tha devil it is !? (Laughter.) Once for all, I say to you, rally In all your atrength in this election. You have a mtn veil known to the democracy of |thl* city?William H. IVovemeyer ? (Loud cheers) Stick to your colors and you hast be vic torious. (Cheers.) The resolutions were then put, and cirriad byscclama tlen. Here there was a great bustle on the platform. Some dozen young orators were ready primed for the occ??ton, and were almost bursting. The bustle arose from thsjr anxiety to apeak. The friends of each pressed the clsios of their respective favorites. Always preparsd for a* emergency, the maatrr-rpirit of the muses, the Don Oio vannl of the young democracy, Captain Rynders, rush ed forward and said:? , Fallow citizens?I have bnt one word to any- (Cries ?' "Oo it?huzza for the Empires !") The Empire Club will march in proceasion, to wait on the democratic no minee for tho mayoralty, and I invite yoe to join us.? (Loua ) I now movu that this meeting adjourn. Thia motion was seconded, unJ carried by acclamation. The splendid band of the "F.mpire Club" struck up "The Empiros are coming !"? a hundred rockets were shot tip blazing into the heavens?the Captain jumped off the platform in the Hall, and was at the head of his club in two minutes?the procestion in long and strong array with torches ond banners moved c H -the thousands who had congregated in the Hall followed in the train?and the poor orators ruslie ! to the bar to drown their ngeny in genuine, hot, fle.y, locoloco brandy.

The Chairman briefly addressed the meeting as to the object and nature ot the meeting. He then invited l)r Reese 10 urldrees the meeting. Di. Reus then cams forward, and said that he ct lit i to the meeting with thu intent ol being quick to hear hut slow to Those who called the meeting d.sei ved every praise, but it it had been called by rum sellera and rum drinkers, tne house would have been much better tiled than on the preaent occasion. Notwithstanding this lack of zeal, he rejoicad to see so many piesent to bring to bear on the legislature their in fluence. He proceeded to take a review of the endeavors of the Temperance party in this cause for some years past, unl said the time had now arrived, whan the people ought to decide when, and where, and what number of rum sellera ought to bo in the city, or whether there should be any at all. Yet it had been denied to them the right to act thus?to act the in same way as in other parta ot the State; but hoped that the people would arise, and shew the Senate that they were not permitted to delay longer the passage ot this wise and sanatory law Tho city was iu the most disgracelul state, in consequence of the traffic in rum: all that the proposed law asked was, whether this state of things was to continue; was it ne cessary that, tor every sixty men, women and children, there should be a license .for the sale of alcohol? Yet such was the law as it at preaent stood. If the peo ple had the decision in their own hands they would soon show the contrary, and thoae who went now before the Senate, in opposition, dare not leave the question to the peoplo. He then proceeded to show that the time was now different from what it waa a few years since, when a French traveller said ibat one half of the people were en gaged in pouring out and the other half in drinking rum; and went on to attack certain members of the 8enate who sought, as he said, to limit the franchise of the citi, zens of New York, but he claimed on their behall the same right as in other parts ot the State. If the Senate refused to do them justice, there were 10,000 good hearts that would march to Albany and enforoe tbsir jost claims and rights. (Oreat applause ) A remonstrance to the Senate was then read?claiming the right, on pure democratic principles, to decide the question for themselves, aa to whether they should have such dens of iniquity as the rum-shopa. In support of this, two resolutions were offered? cne of thanks to the members of the Legislature who supported the proposed measure, the other requesting Senator Jones to take charge of the remonstrances bout to be presented.' A person present wished to have the bill, aa proposed, read, a* ho was not acquainted with it One of the Secretaries road a synopsis of the bill. The Chsibmar then read the memorial to the Senate which waa in unison with the wishes of the previous speaker. Mr. B. D. Griiwold then addressed the meeting on the why and wherefore of the proceeding of the body in this matter, and aaid it would be better that all other parta of the State were exempt than this city. There were now loud cries of " Greeley," " Greeley.'' Mr. Horace then came forward and said, that the bill would be lest in consequence of the apathy of the people of this city. He had received a letter frcm a senator the previous morning, stating that the clau:e relative to this city would be withdrawn, to save the bill. The rum-sellers had been active both with money and energy in opposing the bill,and the con*equence%aa that the bill was reported without the clause relative to this city. This was entirely owing to the apathy that had prevailed during the past winter. He then recommended for every in an toll astir himself in getting signatures to the memorial belore Monday morning; if sufficient numbers of aignaturea were not obtained to counteract the rum sellers in thia city that it will be lost, and with the loss df the bill, as regarded the city, its beneficial effects would ba destroyed in the State, as the rum-sellers in other patta would endeavor to obtain tka same privileges the bill in its present form gave thoae here. He exhorted eli those piesent to exert themaelvea energetically. (Cheers.) The Hon. Alvai* Stewaet then addresied the meeting, and said ita object waa of more importance than the object of the late election, or the annexation of Texas, for the latter was only the annexation of a new State, while their object was the regeneration of an old one. He then proceeded to ehow that all the evils existing iu this city were owing to rum selling. He proceeded to illustrate the cause of Temperance in a similar style of the revelation of scripture, and in a similar language, and said the sign posts of rum-sellers, at the approach of the temperance cause creaked out" 400 per cent, clear profit," " 400 per cent, clear profit." (Laughter.) He then recapitulated what had been done by the Legislatures of the country, in the cause, showing that they were afraid to act with energy for faar of losing their dominant power, and they had sent the woik back to the people: this waa wise, for all power lay in the people themselves, and it waa for them to act He then alluded to the uae of indicui coculit iu catching fish, which was reokoned so unfair that the legislature had thought proper to prevent iu being used, and had inflicted a fine to pre vent it, yet in their humanity they allowed the rum seller to pour down the throat of the rum-drinker, a won* article than any indicui coeulut without a fine. (Laughter and applause.) He then proceeded to take a review of the propoaed law, and ahowed the exertion* that had been made by the rum aellera, and read their pe tition to the Senate, making some very humorona remark* aa he proceeded, creating much laughter. He aaid that the object waa to put the 8 000 rum-eellers in thia State on the aatne footing as other citizens, that they should not have the power of sum selling ; it waa juat the same with the rum-sellers as with Paul and the imsge-dealers ot Ephesus, who exelaimed against him because he meddled with their vested rights; therefore Paul must have been an unconstitutional man, as well a* the temperance advo oates of the present day. The rum sellers were like a man who went to the ltockv Mountains, and brought a baskets of rattle snakes and let them loose upon the inha bitants in Broadway to bite them,and when complained of and the authorities were to put them down, the owner o' the snakes might as well claim compensation for his snakes, as the rum-sellers of thia city for compensation and protection in their nefarious pursuits. He exhorted them all to exertion in this grand cause, and sat down aiuid considerable cheering One or two verbal alterations to the resolutions, ho. were proposed, a subscription entered into to defray the expenses of the meeting, he., when the proceedings ter minated. The " Indian" Warfare in Delaware.?Our account last week closed with Tuesday's proceed ings. The contemplated attack on Monday night was more formidable than we at the time suppos ed. it has been admitted by some of the anti renters (opposed to the Indians.) that some 500 had assembled at two points on Monday, and were drilling tor tne intended onslaught at night, expect ing a reinforcement of some G00 from Schoharie. Spies sent here tor the purpose, carried the intelli gence to the Indians, ot preparations going on. which so cooled their ardor that they concluded their reception would not be of the most pleasant character; and the Schoharie 6heep-faces failing to arrive, they concluded to Bkulk back to their wig wams. Tne Sheriff having applied to the Gover nor for aid, to preserve the peace, &c., 250 mus kets, with a supply of ammunition were despatched Trom Albany on Wednesday morning, under an es cort of eight members of the Albany Republican Artillery, and arrived here on Thursday night. Up to that time we had not had enfficient arms; but the way ,our patriotic citizens made use of expe dients?in the formation of ?' pitch-fork" compa nies, and in collecting together every article that could be used as a weapon of defence, in the ahape of garden hoes, axes, shovels, spades, dec , and the way the ladies, (bless their souls,) made prepara tions to aid our citizens in resisting ihe anticipated attack, by getting ready for use, hot water, toast ing forks, broom-sticks, &c., was a caution to the sheep-skin violators-, of law and order'? On Saturday, a posse went to Bovina, and after a pretty hot chase, captured John H. Rutherford, heretofore indicted for being disguised He has been bailed out of jail in the sum of $1,600. On Monday, a poseee of 100 started out for the pur pose of serving processes, &c., and have not yet re turned. Thus things stand at present. The village is guarded thoroughly, and will continue to be, as long as any danger exists. We are gratified in being able to say that Mr. Rogers, the young man who was accidentally shot in the court house, is as comfortable as can be expected, and no doubt is entertained of his recovery. It is truly gratifying to witness the readiness and alacrity with which our citizens have come forward to aid the Sheriffin maintaining the laws.?Del. Gazette, March 26.

The stock speculators have commenced their anticipa tiona in relation to the possibility or probability of the interest due ou the debt of Pennsylvania, in August next, being paid at matuiityin full. The appropriation bill before tbe legislature has passed the lower House and it will, withoutidoubt, paas the upper House without much! bill app alteration. This bill appropriates about $3,090.100-in-1 eludes tbe interest due in August, amounting to $865J)20, and an item of $848,324 for the payment of interest on oer- j tain certificates to be paid after ail the other appropriations era paid An amendment was mads providing, that in. esse of a deficiency, to pay the whole interest at maturity, all sums of $50 and under should be paid in oash in fulli and the remainder prorata, and drafts upon the treasury* for tho balance to be paid in the order ef their presentation,1 as fast as the treasury becomes provided with funds. Tbe passsge of this bilf through the Senate will aattle this point, and the only thing left in doubt will bo tbe supply of funds to meet the payments, including the semi-tnuual interest, as they become due. The Treasurer of tfc- Hiate estimates that the revenue of the Stats from all sourres, for the year ending Nov. 30,1846, will amount to $8,808,-? 349, and the expenditures, including tbe two Hems ot in-) terwt given above, to $3,('6I,013, which wiU leave,' a surplus oi $'347,380 The receipts into the trea? sury since the 1st of February, from taxes, have been, much larger than anticipated.
