NEW YORK HERALD. S?W Vork,TI>uiaiUjr, \|?rll J IMS" The Htiv 1'opular Memuriit an?t the Wall Struct Pmm. The great popular movement in opposition to the influence of all religious sectarianism is politica contests, and for the conservation and advance, tnent of the original principles of the constitution, originated by the democratic whigs at National Hall, continues to progress with a degree of strength and enthusiasm such as we have rarely, it ever, witnessed amongst the masses of the people. Mr. Selden attracts in every ward immense audiences, amongst which many of the locoiocoa and great numbers of neutral men mingle. So far as popular teeling and symimlhy go, this new progressive movement ol the whig pariy carries with it the most encoursg'ng iuuicat,0os ot future success and triumph. Due of the most remarkable leatures of this movement is presented in its action oa the Wall street prtss. The Courier and Enquirer, which, for a lengthened period, has affected to represent the whig party, has been denounced in the moat pointed, mdiguant and determiaed manner in a number of the wards, and the determination to re pudiate, entirely, the Wall street organs, appears to have been resolutely formed by the masses ot the wlii^s of this city. This is, indeed, singularly sig mlicant. This discovers, in the best possible man ner, that the present movement is a practical one ?that it is the growth of no ephemeral, local, tran a tory excitement,?but that it is the work of great original principles, operating on the popular mind, ? id directing it to a new, energetic, and enlightened c uirse of action with respect to political affairs.? We are thus informed, in the most unequivocal manner that the w^ng masses are determined no longer to submit to the dictation of a press con ducted on the antiquated and exploded notions of a past age?that there ia in fact now in progress, a general up heaving of the original elements of so ciety, like that up-heaving of the crust of the earth which Professor Lyell describes. The whigs of this city, then, are now awakening to a full conviction of that truth which we have been enforcing upon them for years?that this Wall street press, with its controlling stock-jobbing in fluences, was their worst enemy. Has not the whole his'ory of that press shown that it was an atjpncy full of mischief and evil to the whig cause 1 Tukethe Courier for example. Uaaitbadone single characteristic which 'should save it from the de nunciations now poured out against it by the party it professed to serve 1 Not one. This vascillating. inconsistent, wavering, unstable, intriguing, sel fish course, haB been notorious. It has shifted and twisted, and turned, and played such fantastic tricks as have often made, if not the angels, at least poor whigism weep. In all the elements which constitute a aervicable party organ, the Courier has been utterly wanting. A newspaper, to be the efficient ally of a political party, must possess an influence on public opinion. But what power of controlling, or directing, or creating popu lar impulses, can such a paper as the Courier? the organ ot a mere clique of dabblers and gamb lers in stocks,?possess 1 None. The only healthy and effective popular movement to which it has ever contributed is that just now commenced, which will, we are confi dent, ultimately rid the whig party of the mis chievous influence that the Courier has produced by its more than usually impudent attempt to inter fere with the purposes of the whig masses. If the new revolution, originated by Mr. Selden, weie to produce no other good to the whigs, than this decided and enthusiastic condemnation and repudiation of the Wall street press, they would indeed have abundant cause for rejoicing. Whig ism is now apparently in a transition state, becom i ng the true progressive democracy of the age ? This cutting loose fromjthe corrupt and treacherous stock-jobbing organs of Wall street, ia one of the most encouraging tokens of the change that we have yet seen. Mayor Harter's Manifesto.?His Honor the Mayor issued a manifesto yeaterday, contradicting a report that he had made apeechea in the wards? a very unneceaaary contradiction, aa no one aaid that he had, except aomebody in an obacure penny paper. But ii Mr. Harpet haa not made apeechea in the warda, he haa made apeechea to deputationa from the warda, occasionally, by deputies selected from his Marshals, who have always a speech rea dy for him, either on their tongue or in their pocket. His Honor, however, taken occasion to apeak, in this manifesto, of his great achievements in of fice, in serving his constituents, at whose expense he solemnly declares he haa eaten only one meal. Pray, what haa Mr. Harper really done! We know of no official act of his important enough to be named, except (he immortal project of the tin pans fastened to stakes round the Park Fountain, on the faurth of July. Mr. Harper is indeed, as a private citizen, a most excellent, moral and pioua man. But he is much more at home, and finds a much more appropriate aphere for the exercise of his talents, aa the head of a publishing house, chat ting with authors, joking with the craft at trade sales, or retailing hia anecdotes, with hia feet up, by the side of a cheerful winter's fire, than aa the chief magistrate of the great metropolis of the Union. For the management of the troublesome, complex and important municipal affairs of the city of New York, he is altogether unfitted and in competent. The Recent Farcical Duel in Philadelphia ?There is a great deal of talk about the farcical duel, or attempt at a duel in Philadelphia, in which Colonel Webb, according to all accounts, figured as one of the seconds. The Colonel appears to have forgotten the peculiar position in which he stands with respect to the law against duelling. He was saved from the State Prison fortfighting a duel, only on his solemn pledge that he never would in any ca-e offend is that way. But in wanton violation of tnis engagement, we find him again trespassing against the laws, by becoming .a party to a hostile meeting between two young tools. He may possibly attempt to excuse himself, by saying that he went on the ground as a peace-maker. But that would be a most ridiculous plea. An honorable and wire peace-maker would have taken a very different course. We are sorry that iColonel Webb has behaved in such a foolish and criminal manner in this case. He has now forfeited his pardsn by violating its express conditions. We repeat, we are very sorry on account of this, because we helped to get the Colonel out of his former scrape, by getting up a petition for his pardon; and besides we cannot aflsrd to lose our ancient friend and contemporary. Re has long been in Wall street a source of infinite amusement to us in the Statd Prison he would be comparatively useless. All the whigs, too, appear to be coming down upon him, and it is too bad that hw should be himself so hostile to hia own in terests. Really, .really, we feel very sad on ac count of the Colonel's recent misconduct. Tourists to Eursfe.?We never knew such a flow of passengers as has this year set towards Europe. All the fine packets of this port are going full, and the steam ship Cambria, which left Bos ton on Tuesday, carried over a hundred in fher ca bin. We understand that the splendid packet Ar go, Captain Anthony, will sail lor La Belle France, on the Sth inst., five days h?nce?and that, accord ing to present indications, her beautiful and comfortable state rooms will be filled with fashion able tourists. It is said that all who have once sailed with Captain Anthony go again Vith him, whenever pleasure or business constrain them to croso thr Atlantic Overflow of the Hudson.?The river haa risen considerably at Albany- On the lat instant it wag r. n C^uay street, and n the bs?*ments of th* stores OA lit* H?r GREAT ExClTrMENT Amongst the Savans ok tux Historical Soctrrv-lMroRTAirr LVcusbion. Now that ihf great Premdenital election las been iatrly settled, a great revival haa already commen ced tn everything connected with literature,science and the arts. A very marked indication ol this gratifying state of things was afforded by the re cent meeting of the N Y. Historical Society. That learned and highlyrespectable body,or at least a por tion of its members,has just engaged ia the achiev naent ot a project which is calculated to attract the energies of the most aspiring, patriotic and literary I ambition?nothing more nor less, in lact, than the obtaining of a name for this country. The excite ment on this subject has reached a point of great intensity. Since the melancholy truth burst upon the mind ot Mr Field, that we really had no na tional name,he has scarcely given sleep to his eyes or slumber to his eye-ltds, and his elaborate 4 re port," read at the last meeting of the Society, has thrown all the literati quite into a fever. A country without a name! The idea is frig fit ful. Why there is now hardly a*solitary isle i? watery waste that is destitute ol a name, and t at this vast republic, already covering such an 1m mense portion of one of the great divisions o t e earth,and which is stretching out its hands in every direction, like the immortal parish boy, asking for more, should be absolutely nameless, is agonizing. It is true, it has got a sort of an appellation, which is known in some obscure quarters, but it has no "travelling name." A "United Stateser," Mr. Field contends, ia most decidedly, in foreign parts, like that of the haunted inn in La Sonxnambula,"ra ther an ominous name." Well, perhaps Mr Field maybe right there,but we do not agree with him that the present unfortunate appellation of the country presents an insurmountable obstacle to its poetic immortality. How can we, when we have so Ireah in our memory that beautiful ode, commencing? If I was President of thess United States, I'd lick 'lasses candy and swing upon the gates? We gave, in our report of the proceedings on this exciting subject, at the late meeting of the Historical Society, only a mere idea of the intensi ty of the feeling with which it ia regarded, and the enthusiasm with which the discussion is now car ried on in the literary circles. Nothing at all to equal the interest and excitement in this matter, tias been known, since the memorable controversy between Laurie Todd, and his friend " the Bai lie"? In the midst of all the bustle and to-do which so many thlncs occasioned, as the old man and 1 were one evening .ittini cheerfully on the bench at the door, conversing uf what ?ii to be done, that affliction, Mr. Waft, came <vith his poering eyes, and sat down unbidden beside us. ? Wael, gentlemen," said he, " what'a the name ye In tend to bestow on that capital city everybody ?ays yo are aoing to build. I have been thinking that Hoskinsville would bo protty and poetical; but thia alternoon Mr. Herbert, the schoolmaster, haa put a new one into my aead ; dont you think Todopolis would be prime?" it you never were farther astray in yobr whole life, Mr. Waft " said I: "what could lead you to think we were two tuck foola aa to call cities afterourjowa nameM? No, no: we'ra of sober imagining*. It's to be called Nineveh. There never had been such a thought between us ; 1 just said so, I csnnot tell wherefore, to set the conjectures of the meddling bodie on another tactfl but scarcely had I uttered the word, when Mr. Hoakins, taking the cigar tie was smoking from his mouth, and striking off the ashes on the edge ottnebeidSh, said? ... .. .... ii Nineveh'. well, I guess, thstmight be pretty partikler popular too; yes, it might serve-no bad settler s trap would be 'at 'era Neenivyee; but I was a calculating thai Samarv would do better, for there ain't yet no Ssmary in Jerusalem and Jericho!" cried Mr. Hoskins, " Walton ia every recommendatory name-?not another ol the same in all the map. 1 thanka the 8quire for the hint, "This wea enough to provoke the elect; "jd' ? Surely, Mr. Hoskina, yere by younielf. to think for a moment of calling the aettlement Walton'. Take my word for it. If you do ao, it will soon be Waff enough. " Well, Squire, and what shall I call it 7" " Anything," said I; for 1 was nettled. " Nay, Mr. Todd," said the tormentor, " Anything | would be a most extraordinary name for a town; 6 ?own, too. that ye no doubt intend shall be a metropoli tan. If 1 might lay in a word, I would have you, Mr Todd, to reconsider that vardict What do ye thing oi H | " I think of nothing!" was my tart answer, before he had finished his speech _ . . " Well, 1 guess." said the old man," the Squire is cou si- erable Jumbled by that ere propositioner ; but he need ot be none sfeerd ; 1 won't call the settlement after h m. But 1 have been aground afore for a name to our settle- | ment-what think you ol Volcano 7 I guess it will sound ? "fig dear sir," was my solid answer, "Volcano will never do at all; that's the name of e burning mountain " And why mayn't it be the name of a village, too 7 111 Ihould as soon here expected you would have called it Arthur's Seat." . , , " That's the name of a chair," was hU reedy ?"swer, ? and therefore it shall be Volcano, which fiows like ma lasses in the mouth, end will be easily writtenjby in th?ir letters, many of 'em not being college learn d. " But. Mr Hoskins, whet's the name you have thought 'Tie made*me no answer tor the space of a more, and looking me steadfastly In the face. Let it be j called Judiville, tor your wife thatto deed ?ndgone ; *nd | it was so called accordingly, Judith bsing her Christian sppsllation. We do trust that this exciting discussion in the Historical Society will be speedily and successful ly terminated. Mr Field has abundant precedent in his favor. Do we not all know that the name ot "Muequito Cove," up the East River, was 1 changed to "Glen Cove," and that by the new ap j pellation it has ever since been designated by all who navigate that stream! Do persist, good Mr Field, in giving us a name?let us be no longer a "horrible shadow?an unreal mockery," a people without a name! Theatrical and Musical.?The success of the new comedy at the Park is really remarkable Last night there was not a single vacant seat in the boxes. Dinneford is very busy preparing for the produc tion of the great Greek tragedy " Antigone," a? Palmo'a elegant theatre. This will bequite a novel dramatic entertainment, and will, we have no doubt, attract here as large and as fashionable: au. diences as in London. It will be produced under the competent direction of Mr. George Vandenhof! and will give us a correct and adequate idea of the theatre, passions, costume, and opinions of ancient Greece. There is not much doing in the musical world just now, so far as this city is concerned. Several concerts have been given of late, at which Pico, Sanquirico, and one or two other members of the late Italian troupe have assisted. Valtellina is rusticating at Bloomingdale. lie has there a beau tiful little cottage, and three acres of land, and in stead of cultivating music, he is raising tomatoes and cabbages, bringing up chickens, and minister ing to the wants of a numerous progeny of pro mising little pigs. He pays $200 a year for his cot tage and farm, and lives on it like a prince, the only drawback being the death of a valuable horse, on which he us d to ride to the Opera every even ing, and which fell a victim to a distemper that baffled the skill of all the doctors at Harlem. Korponay is at Washington, and prosperous of course. It seems that the Miss Pray who danced at Desjardin's benefit was not a pupil of his, but of ihat lady. Defeat or tub Native Amebiosn Pabty in Williamsbueoh.?This election took place on Tuesday. The democratic candidate for supervi sor was elected by 90 majority. The whigs and natives voted for one candidate. The entire de mocratic ticket was also elected. The votes were as follows: Dsm. Whig. Native. Den. Supervisor 488 -Whig It N. united 848 00 Town Clerk 409 140 237 S3 Justice of Peace 404 20A 187 13 Meas'r of Oraiu 400 SOS 18 Sup. Com. 8ch'ls4ia 871 44 Town Neater 413 ISA 387 40 Pound Master 430 1A7 317 40 Five Constables and all the democratic Inspec tors elected. The natives carried Wiliiamsburgh last year by over 200 majority. Mtlitaby Tr*Notrr.?That highly respegfable cerps of citizen soldiers, the "Scottish Gnard," made a public parade yesterday, and was greatly admired. By special invitation addressed to Capt. Castle, the company visited Mr. Barclay, the Bri tieh Consul, at his residence, where they,were re ceived with the most courteous hospitality. After partaking of nn elegant collation at Mr. Barclay's, the company marched up Broadway to the cricket ground on tha Hloonnngdala iload, wkoio they \veni through i ouwtber of evolutions Another Great Rally of the Whig Party In the Second Ward?Dudley Seidell atlil rising. There was a tegular jam in the room of the whig ?arty ut the Second Ward Hotel, Nassau street, last evening. The. folding doors of the room ad joining were thrown open, and filled instanter, and uurnbere were content to remain in the pas-sage leading thereto, within bearing of the whig candi date for the Mayoralty of this ctiy for tne ensuing year. Geo. F. Nksbitt, Esq., was called to the Chair, and Messrs. ltoland and Delano, were appointed Mr. Kelly came forward, and said that the pre sent meeting was called in consequence of a reso luttoD proposed by him at a previous meeting ot the wing club of the Second Ward; and in conse quence, begged to offer the lollowing resolu tions.. , Resolved, That in Dudley Seldeo, our candidate Tor Mayor, we behold the regulatly uominated'eandidate of ttio whig party ol Una city, that, warned by tke disastrous result ol a waut oi adherenc^to aound principle! during the paat year, we are now ireTermiued to atand iaithlully by our principle! and our nominations, and, come what may, we shall have the satialaotion ot feeling that we have discharged our whole duty to ourselves, our partv anil our country. Krsolved, That we exhort all who are whigs, " and nothing else," to unite with us in carrying out this truth ful and faithful determination. Mr. Cookk then sang a song, commencing, " The song of the flag?brave whig flag, It'* an emblem that ia dear to us all." A delegation was then appointed to invite Mr Selden to address the meeting. In a short time that gentleman appeared, and said? Gentlemen of the Second Ward 1 should have some hesitation in thus coming belore you if my own personal interest alone was concerned, or In going through the different wards of this city, but I must say, that during my political existence, 1 hare never seen such masses gathered together as I have seen for the past fortnight t'hia is no doubt owing to the general opinion that pre vailed in the whig party, that it wai necessary for the preserva'ion ot the whig paity lhat they should be unani moua in the forthcoming election ; aa well as the neevs sity that tnere existed for the better and more economical government ol the oity. The gentleman then entered into a detail of the city expenditure, allowing an increase of the aitbursements of $314 410 36 He then inquired if this was the reform that was promised ui, and lot wbiob <he whigs supported the party in power Inst spring . Is ibis ward better represented than it ?-euM have been by Mr. Woodhull 7 (" No, not so well.") The speaker then entered into the question of what advantage tho longsr existence of the native American party would be, and showed, by their extravagance, intolerance, and bigotry, that no possible good could arise from it. The great ob ject of the native American party was to destroy the whigi; and he calleJ upon those present to say, was here any necessity tor such .' (" No, no," and cheats ) The whole vote of the native American party in this city ind Philadelphia does not amount to 30,000. (Hoar, hear ) Tharo ia not above A,fOO or 6 U00 certain native votes in this city. Yet this very party, with all the boldness pot ?utile, now calls upon the two great parties in this city to throw up their organization Now. the democrats say they will not?and will the whigs of the secund ward give up 'beir organization at their bidding? ("No, no.') Now it was well known that the whig party was defeated by the conjunction with the Native American party. He could show them counties where hundreds of naturalized vot ers were lost to the whig party in consequence ol the ob jects and course of the native American party ; to such in extent was this evil believed in, that there were more than double the number of the Native American party, ol good whig votes, lost by the connexion. He tneta pro ceeded to show that that state of thingsdid now exist, anil that hundreds of naturalized votes would be given to the whigs at the ensuing|election that were lost at |the last. He than proceeded to remark on the bigotry and ictoler auceoi the Native American pary ; and the absence ol every man ot talent in their ranks, and challenged them to ?ho w a single one. All that was good and great in the land shunned the party as they would a pestilence. The only party that was connected with them was office seekers. ('hay got e little power in this city, from whence it spread to Philadelphia. [?? What was the consfquence in Philadel phia ?"] Gentlemen, I em not prepared to go into that question ; as it was a disgrace to our country. But thank God, although the Native party was in power, our eity was not disgraced by murder, fire, and pillage. (Cheers.) He then proceeded to say that the object of the native party was to organize a party for the Presidential contest in 1918. Now, are you prepared to support such e candi late 7 (" No, no, never," and laughter.) He had now been through thirteen wards of this city, end during tm whole of the lest Presidential campaign he never saw so much enthusiasm as he had met with since the commence rnent ofthe present contest. This hetookas no| compliment o himself, but as an instance of the sense of the whig party, ?a to tke necessity of throwing off the Native American party, and unless this was done, the whig party couid lever command success ; and the latter would not lose in numbers thereby, for enough of proay dubious whigs would once more jein the ranks, and others from dif erent parties come among them ; these would more than ever balance any loss of numbers. The gentleman then proceeded to show, by whig unanimity at the approach lag election, they would obtain greater influence during the period of the present Presidency. After some ether remarks the speaker proceeded to exhort those present to united exertion, not for hia sake, but for the sake of the great party to which they belonged; end if they oeme out in their power, they would not only keep the present ad ministration in check, but be the means of again obtaining ' hat power they ones possessed. The gentleman then set lown. (Three times three cheer* were then given (ot Dudley Selden, end three others for Henry Clay.) Mr. Cook sang another song, telling those present :? " It would never do to give it up so, Second Ward; , It would never do te give it up so." Some other business, relative to the proceedings of the committee at the approaching election was then entered into, and the meeting broke up. Fifth Ward Democratic Meeting.?There was a strong muster last night at the Hoboken House, toot of Canal street, where it was expected Judge Bryce would make a speech, but immediately af ter the chairman took his place, Mr. Wells an nounced that the Judge was sick and could not attend, which cast a temporary shade upon the as sembly. After a little they cheered up, were ad dressed by several speakers, and evinced the usual file of the unterrified democracy. Late from Brazil.?The Amelia Mulholland, arrived yesterday, with advices from Rio to the 17th of February. No news. Markets reports are in their proper place. Interesting from Vbnbzeula.?Advices from Laguayra are to the 13th ultimo. Our Minister is Caracas, Vespasian Ellis, Eq., seems determined to have the odious law lor punishing the captains of ves sels, for any mistakes they msy nuke in their manifests, repealed; and I am informed that there is scarcely a doubt that itwill ba done daring the present session oi Congress. He is also using every effort in bis power to obtain a is luction en the import daties which fall se unequally upon the trade of the United States, in comparison with that oi Great Britain. I doubt, however, whether he will be able to succeed in this before the adjournment. The country is far from being in a tranquil state. On the night oi the Uth inst large parties paraded the street of ' araoas, shouting "down with the Government," "down with the Oligarchy," he , and the President, th? editor of the "Liberal" (the Government paper) and others were serenaded with all kinds of shouts and threats. Although the military force in the capital wsa more than sufficient to put down the mob, they were noi called into service, the Executive deeming it the most prudent course to make no opposition. Yesterday morn ing the House of Representatives took the matter in hand, end they are now discussing a most astringent law against all seditious and riotous meetings. It is said that it will go into the Senate to-day, and will probably be in force before the end of the week; as to what may be the result, it would be difficult to conjecture. I observe in the proceedings oi Congress, reported is riding ' the "Liberal," that a bill has been passed providing for the education of a young men in the art of ship building, om wn in Philadelphia, from which it appears that they hav> ?ound out in Venecnela where to look for a good school of naval architecture. We learn tha* upon considering the observations ad dressed by our Cnarge d'Affairs, Mr Ellis, to the Minis ter of Foreign Affairs, touching the penalties imposed upon Captains of vessels lor inadvertent errors in their manifests, the President of the Republic, with the sanc tion of the Council, recommended to Congress a repeai of thoso obnoxious provisions, and there is a probability that the efforts of Mr. Ellis in Ihis particular, will be suc cessful.? PhiUitlphi* V. 8 Gattlle, Jlpiil 3. Late from Bermuda, dec.?We have received the Btrmudtan to the 25th ult. There ia nothing particularly new or intereating. According to our accounta, three or four slavers had been captured and taken to Demarara and Sierra Leone. Reliet from the several WeatJ Indian Islands had been sent to the fire sufferers at Barbadoes. From Cardinas ?By the Galena, arrived yes terday, we have advices to the 20th March. It it stated that the sugar crop will be 75 per cent short er thia year than last. The duties on lumber and provisions, which had been suspended for six months, have been renewed, and great dissatisfac tion existed among the merchants in consequence. Steam Shit Camhria, Capt. Judkins, left Boston on Tuesday afternoon for Halifax and Liverpool, with a very large mail and one hundred and nineteen passengers. The mails from the north, west, and south, were all in season, and the letters for warded. Sailors' Meeting.?A meeting of the tars of the 'port of New York, takes place at two o'clock to-day. Union is strength. We advise every seaman, and every friend of seamen, to at tend, as the proceedings are expected to be of utility and interest to that mi ritoriousbodyof men. Good oFFORTtmnr for those furnishing house?There is to be an extensive nnle, by auc tion, of elegant furniture this day, by J. S Piatt, at 92 Broadway. Such a favorable opportunity lor ob'aininf elegant .articles ol hrniture seldom go One Week Later from Cklna j Another ship, the Grafton, Capt. Gardener, has I arrived froin Canton. She brings advices to the 27th of December. This is the iourth or fifth vessel from China that has arrived at this port in the last month loaded with teas. The Celestial Empire had fallen into the greatest possible quietness There were no imuelts among the long quetd Chinese; the pirates only seemed to occupy the atteution of the people. We annex the latest market. [From the Hong Kong Kegiiter, Dec. 34 ] The Criminal Sessions of the Supreme Court have again closed. The calendar baa been a heavy one, but Una was only what was to be looked for trom the mate* riaU of which the native population of the island i* com posed; and it is satisfactory, as a proof of the efficiency of .he poiico, that thefts and robberies are no longer com mitted with impunity. Various reports ol piracy have been in circulation du ring the last week, but none ot them have reached us in a si a;>e sufficiently tangible to be laid before our readers. On ihe Jcomrary, it is said the reported attack on the Starling is a fabrication. Theoaptain, we hoar, says no such event occuired; and we presume the whole has its origin in the pot valor of some would-be hero, who, in true Celestial style, annihilates his enemies even before he has seen thi m. Markets. Homo Kong Market, Dec. 30.?Camlets continue in the same depressed state, without the slightest prospect oi early improvement. Kor Dutch Camlets there has been some little inquiry, and for them rates are tolerably sup ported. Chintzes?The slight demand lately existing has quite died away and we hear of no fresh sales this week. Indeed those we lately reported must be looked upon as merely foroed. Cotton?The market is dull though no material alteration in price is observable. The finer qua lities ot Bombay staple are in no demand, and the aggre i of all descriptions i gatesaieaof all descriptions amount to only about 3,600 bales. Cotton Yarn is unenquired alter and no sales are reported. Our quotations ate almot nominal Lead dales of two or three hundred peculs are reported ut our quotations, which remain unchanged. Long Cloths we r.'gret to say continue In the same depressed state. Kor whites the inquiry is next to nothing and sales are ex ceedixgly difficult to effect, treys are in rather a heal thier state, but the demand for them is also falling off, and the week's transactions are very triiing. The great scar city ot money among the Chinese, and the unwillingness

of foreigners to take tea in barter arc doubtless the main causes of the extreme depression of the market. Long Kits are suffering for the same reasons, and the market Is dull and in anything but a healthy state. Wo hoar of a few huudted pieces of assorted colors, at prices within our quotations. Opium?There is little doing in any da seription of drug, especially in Benares, for which there arescaroely any inquirias. Pepper?Nothing doing. Exvobts.?Alum?The report of a considerable supply being expected coastwise has occasioned a slight decline in price, and the Chinese are not so firm in their demands; a few parcels only have been purchased for shipment to India. Camphor -Notwithstanding the low rates ruling lUtsideseveral purchases both on Indian and American sccount are (reported in Canton at the rates we give ? Cassia is still much inquired lor, and though the supply is abundant ttie high rates given in the first instaace are still demanded by the Chinese, and submitted to by pur coasers. Bilk?Nothing is doing, as the ailkmen although wishing to realize, still maintain their high rates for the remaining stock. Sugar has declined sbout two mace par pecul and thera is not muoh demand for the article. 8u gar Candy?There is still a good demand and price, re well maintained. Teas, Black?The only purchases we hear ot are in Congous, of which nearly twenty chops have changed hands at from 16 a 36 taels for common and middling qualities. The Chinese will probably atill fur tnar reduce their demands. Green?For Gunpowder and Hysons the competition is still brisk and an advance on the already extravagant price* of the latter baa taken place Hyson Skins and young Hysons are not so muoh sought after and rates may bo quoted under those of last weea.

We thought that no one at the present day could tie found so ignorant or so prejudiced us to attempt vo oppose the admirable system ol naval appren icea introduced into our service within the last tew yeirs under the sanction of an net ol Con gress. But aa such an attempt hua recently been made, we must ahow its absurdity. A writer in 'he Tribune catla the system the " exploded Naval Apprenticeship System." The folly ot this is too ipparent to need contradiction. lhe system has not been exploded, but is still in operation. All that we complain ol ia that it ia not carried out bo tully and extensively aa the real friends ot the na vy desire; aa fully as Congress intended by the law passed, that it should be. Already uuder this system some 2900 boys have been shipped into ihe service, and there are still in the service soma 300 or 400 excellent boys who are an ornament to the navy, and oi whom their commanders are justly proad. Many boys have been discharged Iroin the service on account ot the expiration of their term, and have re-entered the service of their own accord as boysl Many others have been discharged by ihe Secretary of the Navy, from requests made to him by relatives through letters, and of these many have requested to be allowed to return to the service and have actuallyre-entered the service also asboyi It ia true that a lew?a very, very lew of the offi cers in the navy are opposed?not to the system? but to the little extra trouble which it takes them to teach these boys?and a still fewer number we are happy to say are found who oppose the system because it brings a few poor ragged boys ints the service " betwixt the wind ana their nobility." But the bulk of the gallant olficers in the navy including most or all of our noble commodores and captains?are decidedly and wattnly in favor ot ihjs system, including as gallant an officer and skilful a sailor as the world can produce, the brave Elliott. The writer says, he has had enough of hardy ragged little boys in the navy ; we would in alj kindness ask this v-iter whether he waa born with a pair of silk stockings or breeches on, or with a marling apike in his hands, or otherwise 1 But we are sick of this ridiculous abuse and sneers at ths poor?what does the general government do for the poor boy at alii We know it support* a West Point aristocratical institution at an enor mous expense; and also an institution at the naval asylum, Philadelphia, for the rich man's sons to teach them to become midshipmen; but it does nothing whatever for the poor. Is this fairt Is this republican 1 Shall this state of things be re medied; or shall we appeal to ihe ballot box tor a remedy that shall be lasting and efficient 1 The writer also denies that the Naval Apprentice ship aystem works well. This we contradict. Look at the case ol the Ohio, 74; on her last cruise?this noble ship^ took out sixty boys, out of whom her Commander made 10 of them Master's mates; end this is but one instance out ot a number of similar ones that could b>- quoted. The fact is, that the smartest petty officers iR the service have been ap prentice boys in our Navy; who can take a ship Irom the keel to the truck and rig her; and no nan in the Navy can teach them their duty. As to the man of war service cot making sailors, we would ask this writer whose fault that ia, and whert we get our sailor* from to man our veaaola of wail? If they are not raised in the American Navy, they must b# raised onlboard British, Dutch, or French, or Russian men-of-war,or the men-of-war of some other foreign nations; unless the writer in the Tri bune, to keep pace with his ignorance or his preju dice, should undertake to aasert that they wer* all born with tarry breeches on, or a marlin-apike in their hands, ready made sailors. The truth is, that the Apprenticeship system is the moat valuable sys tem that has ever been introduced into this coun try, and when it shall have a fair trial, which ithaa not had yet, the most splendidly advantageous re sults will flow f*nm its full exercise.

Mr. Halleck has won the wide and enviable lame he enjoys,solely by the exceediag beauty and merit ol his poems. Innumberand length they are greatlv surpassed by those of many others; but in exquisite grace, in vigor of imagination and harmony o rythm, they are not excelled by those of any other American poet.
