>: ' YORK HERALD. MtwVcrk, Suiiilny, April fl, 1849. The hate New* fioin Texiu. Wr give in another column several very mler ?ting extracts (nun the Texas papers received by e lust arrivitl It will be perceived that the in Ihgcuce ol the final passage of the annexation solutions had been received with great enthx asm in Galveston, and that the executive is re -ejected as being irieudly to the consummation <>1 le long agitated union of the lone star Republic itli the States of this Union. We are mcliued to elieve, however, that very serious obstacles to unexalion do cxi^t in Texas, uud that the feeling i favor of the measure is not so warm and uui ersul as the i}ulve?t?n Nttrt would lead us to sup ?se. Th; igents of Biiti.-h intrigue have uot.bccn ?lie, and their industry ha* not been unproductive. I hill it is true that a great portion of the people of Texas are anxious for annexation, and if prompt iiid efficient measures were now adopted by our Government, we are not yet without good grounds or anticipating a speedy settlement of Basques ion. We do not know anything so likely to lead 0 the accomplishment of this great and desirable *nd, as the sending of Mr. Calhoun on a special nission to the Government of Texas. He began he work, and he is the man to complete it. State or Pastiks in the City?The Election next Tuesday.?The interest lelt 111 the present charter election has been rapidly reaching a poin' ?>: great intensity. On all hands, the movement of Mr. Selden, and the wings associated with luni, has been the great theme of conversation and discus hion. Mr. Seidell has addressed crowded meetings in aim ist every one of the wards, and on every oc casion he has been received with the greatest en tiinsi-isni and unanimity, although considerable numbers ol the locofoco party have mingled in se veral o! the meetings which he has addressed Oaly lu one case was the slightest interruption given to Mr. Selden, and that was at a meeting in t ie Tivoli Saloon m the Eighth Ward, which was broker, in upon by a band of rowdies belonging to an nsioeiaiion called the " Shiiller Club," the same which Mayor Harper's famous deputy orator lepresen'.ed as bring cemented by blood, end whose watchword wua " revenge, revenge!" Th<* "natives" have very signally failed in get ting up tublic meetings and processions. Their great mass meeting in the Patk on Friday after noon was a most melancholy abortion, it is, in deed, now quite apparent that this parly has resolv ed itself back into its original elements of bigotry, stupidity, and sectarianism. The gross unfaith fulness ot the present Corporation to their solemn pledges of city ref orm, has awakened the disgust of all the intelligent and honest men who voted for ihetn last year, on the ground of their violated pro inises; and nothing now remains cf "nativism," except the Falstsflian army of intolerance and ignorance,led on by the police officer "Colonel .Snow." In the ranks of the locofocos, a great deal ol apathy and bad feeling appear to prevail. There is an evident want ol spirit and enthusiasm in the masbea of that party. No general meeting hae been attemptedxsinceithat. funny one, which war so abruptly adjourned by Captain Rynders, who prudently brought tne whole eit'air to a close before Hie disturbing elements could be uncorked. The locofoco ward meetings have been rather tame and spiritless. Many, indeed, of the democrats have docked to hear Dudley Seldeu, and are loud tn their commendation of the bold and indepen dent stand which he has taken. There cannot, indeed, be any reasonable doubt tu the mind of any|intelligent man, who calmly surveys the indications afforded by the events of the past week, that Mr. Selden t^ill poll a very large vote. The effect produced in so short a time upon the great masses of the people, by his elo quent, forcible and sound exposition and defence of the original principles of the constitution of this country, iu opposition, not only to" nativism," bui uleo to all partizanship uud sectarianism, is indeed truly remarkable. Mr. Selden, however, has been only the organ and representative of the intelli g' uce, patriotism and true progressive democracy of the country. The utter absurdity ol the attempt to organize a political party, by creating political distinctions between native-born and adopted citi zens, had, from the first, been apparent to every sensible man. We do think that this attempt is the most stupid and absurd that has ever been per petrated by any set of men. To talk in this coun try about the pre-eminent rights and claims ol ? natives!" Why, does not every one know that we are all foreigners-the mixsd breed of the Irish, the English, the Dutch, the French-all the nations' of Europe 7 And yet on this most absurd and ridi culous of all possible ideas, the " native" party base the claims of their candidates to the suffrages of the people of this city ! Then again, in dealing with the religious secta nanism of the " native" party, Mr. Selden has assumed high and independent ground, in which he will besustained by the united intelligence and common sense of rational men of all creeds. He goes against sectarianism of every description? whether Catholic or Protestant. This was the course of the founders of the Republic. They knew no distinctions of religious creed. They all joined?Catholics and Protestants?in the great work of establishing the independence of this coun try. In opposing the religio-political movement of Bishop Hughes, the "natives" were quite right; hut in attempting to perpetuate the same thing un der another name, they also became the subject ol the unmitigated censure of every patriotic and wise man in the community. Mr. Selden, how ever, takes the true course. He denounces all sec tarian interference with political affairs. He thus assumes the original principles of the authors ot Constitution, and must and will be sustained by the American people. Indeed, if the whig party throughout the Union only re-organize on the prin ciples announced and defended by Mr. Selden, it will before four years, have attained a degree of strength altogether irresistible One of the best proofs of the practical effect of Mr. Sslden's assaults upon that miserable spirit of ignorance, bigotry, and sectarian prejudice called " nativism," is found to the fact that the batteries of Colonel Snow and his associates have been turned from the Pope and the Dish against Dudley Selden. The violence and mal.gni ty with which Mr. Selden has been assailed, are indescribable. This shows that the " natives" leel the efleet cf the blows administered by the] whig candidate, or we should rather say by the repre Tentative and randidaie of the progressive democ racy of the age. For is not Mr. Selden indeed ihus properly described 7 His position is elevated far above mere party politics. The movement crigi rated by hwn is a movement in favor of civil and religious hberlv, against persecution and intoler anoc?in favor ol the principles of the American constitution, against the bloody and abommabic principles ot the Inquisition, Such a movement must be successful, triumphantly successful. Al though Mr. Selden may not be elected Mayor still the chances of his election have increased tenfold aud wc should not be at all surprised to find next Tuesday night, that he had polled from fifteen to twenty thousand votes. The popular masses are staring in his f*ror; and when they stir, what can they not accomplish 7 Steam Ship Great Western?Odc hundred passengers arc already " booked" for the Great Western.

Two fine ships, the Republic, Captain Luce, and Swatara, Captain Sintib, airtved yesterday Ircm Liverpool, with udviccB of the 8 h ult. They sailed and arrived in company. The news is unimportant. According to the papers, the cotton market closed tamely in Liverpool on the 7th. Verbally, however, we learn that the market was firm. Nothing later of consequence from the British ! Parliament. The vessels seen in the Mediterranean, and sup posed to be piratical, by the Spanish vessel, which put back to Cadiz a short note since, are reported to be three Portuguese revenue cruisers. The army in Ireland for this month, consists oi seven regiments of cavalry, seventeen regiments ol infantry, seventeen depots of infantry, two troops Royal Horse Artillery, nine compHnies Roy al Marines, and detachments of Battalion Artillery, tunning an effective force ot 21,800rank and file. In addition to the comet recently seen at Berlin, Paris, and London, M. Colla, the astronomer of Parma, announces that he has discovered another; and in the log of Captuia Gautier, who has arrived lately at Marseilles, a third is mentioned. Tne latter is said to be placed between the two stars No. 11 of Eridanus and 16 of the Atlas ol llarding. This comet disappeared at the moment when Captain Gautier approached the equator. A Russian journal gives the details of a volca nic eruption which took place as long ago us June the llih of last year, uot lar from Schemaktia, sitmted in the Black 8ea. About six in in the morning, the volcano all at once sent forth, with a great noise, a quantity of burning matter, impreg nated with naphta. The eruption lasted three quarters of an hour, and not less than four open ings were formed in the mountain. From one ol litem a quantity of muddy water was seen to issue, and below it was a spring of clear water, of a brackish taste, which at present continues to How down to the plain. The craters are now no longer visible, but in their place ure seen two little lulls of a conical iorm.

The bank returns in to-morrow's OjziIU will hare more than usual interest, trom the circumstance of tho "real'* which will be stated in it being that on which the next bank dividend will be declared. At tho bank court held ?n the 19th of last September, it was stated (as many will remember) that a change was to take place with reference lo the perteds ol the " rest" to be dealt with on declaring dividends. To that time tho practice hail been to deal with a "rest'" estimated to the period at which thedlvi tlend was payable, but thenceforth the '? rest" to bo dealt with was to be tho actual one found ut tho half yearly ba lance on tho 29th o! February, or 3lst of August, which*, ever might precrde the dividend. On the 19th of Septem ber it was stati d that the actual " rest" on the preceding 3lit of August was ?3,663,793, and the " rest" advortissd for the week ending the 2Jd of February, was ?3 263,331, showing a decline of ?311,617. However, it is expected that large additions wilt be mado to the "real" for the week ending tho 1st ot March, on the assumption tbatthe balance on the 26th of February will include portions ot the dead weight annuity, of the ten year annuity into which the fourth of the capital repaid by government was invested, and of all other income to that day.

Though the commer cial news by the India mail is not deemed over favorable, still wc havo large business doing lor those markets Spinners are enabled to obtain slight advance on previous rates, and stiil higher may be reasonably anticipated, as there are no stocks, nor likely to be any for some time to come. The Theatres--Revival of the Drama.?The houses at the Park during the last week, have been quite crowded, and the new comedy has been received with great favor by the audiences, which hiva been ol such a character as indicated a singu lar revival of the fortunes of the drama in this city. These audiences have been composed, for the most part, of those classes of the community who have heretofore avoided the theatre?such of the sub stantial middle classes as have hitherto patronized the lecture-room rather than the theatre. It was indeed quite interesting to mark the unwonted aspect of the boxes, and to listen to the delightfully novel, fresh, and hearty expressions of approbation which were elicited by the performance. The un restrained laugh?the loud whisper?the hasty ex clamation?the running commentary of the audi ence, heard all over ihe house, made up, in fact, a very material part ot the entertainment, whilst abundant evidence was thus afforded that an en tirely new and original movement had commenced in favor of the stage. The Park is now indeed in the full tide of success, and if a series of original American dramas be produced and kept up at" old Deary," there can be no doubt that the present theatrical revival will lead to very brilliant results. But one of the most interesting tokens cf a great theatrical revival is to be found in the movement ol Mr. Dinneford for the purpose of producing Greek tragedy at Palmo's. Antigone, the last of a series of three plays illustrating the same story,by Sopho cles, is to be produced under the direction of Mr. George Vandenhofi, to-morrow night. There was ?i rehearsal last evening, and it went off admirably The choruses are well drilled and effective, and the music will be under the very competent direction ol Mr. George Loder. This play is one of the no siest product ons of the great Greek dramatist. It has, as our readers are aware, been produced in London with the greatest success, and we have little doubt iroin the interest already indicated here, that it will be witnessed by crowded and fashion able audiences. This play, it is well to recollect, was written for republican Athens, and affords us lite hebi possible insight into the opinions, customs, and condition of the Athenians. Wc will be great ly surprised, indeed, if its production at Palmo's will not prove one of the most successful hits in the theatrical line that we have ever seen in this city John Jones rN an Agony.?John Jones isina terrible state of agony at the prospect of the "proscription," as he calls it, which Mr. Pok has idopted towards the Tyler incumbents in office ? The removal of Msjr.r Lewis? "the constant and devoted friend of General Jackson for upwards ol thirty years"?has furnished poor John with the theme (or a monody, which is really one of the most pathetic pieces that we recollect lo have met with. And it must be confessed, indeed, that the havoc" has been perfectly hearlreudtug. Just at the very lime when the "Old Kitchen Cabinet" tad tne fires nicely blazing, and the pots and dish es all, clean and ready, to be kicked out for ever ?the whole butch ol them I No wonder that John Jones should be now werping and wailing. He finds some consolation, however, in the fact, that Blair has been decapitated. As for Blair liinstlf he appears to take the matter very philoso phically. Probably he imegims that he Has in fluence enough to effect a restoration. Very doubtful, indeed.

News ol the haul passage of the aiiuexatioa yesc lutiou3 iu Congress had just reached Texas, and had created considerable excitement. Salutes were fired, enthusiastic meetings field, and every demonstration favorable to the projtcet were made in Galveston. It appears by the Houston Telegraph that the National IOgitlcr, which has always been looked upon as the "organ" of (he government, does not alter the sentiments of President Jones, and thul the Executive is warmly in favor of annexation. The next intelligence will be looked lor with interest. It was reported in Texas that Santa Anna had inade his escape. [Krom the Galveston News, March 2id.] Immediately upon the arrival ol the news 01 annexa tion, all the vessel* in our harbor displayed the Stai Spangled lisnuer andfcthe Lone Star floating in unison trom their masts Upon the reception of the undoubted intelligence Ihui the joint resolutions lor the annexation ol Texas had fi nally passed the Congress of the United States, a meeting ol the citizeni ol (Jslveiton convened at the Verandah on the 18th mst, where, upon motion, lien. Mcmucan Hunt was unanimously called to the chair. Upon motion ol Oen. Hugh McLeod, a committee was appointed to draft resolution* to be refeired to a future meeting, and that a salute ol 160 guns be fired in commemmoration cl' the success of xi nexatiou. fiy the arrival of the New York, we have New Orleans papers ;to the 15th inst. Our paper being made up, w< nave only time briefly to notice the complete and tri ?umpkant confirmation of our most sanguine hopes. On the 28ih ult. the amendment of the joint resolution by the Senate was carried through the House by a vote of 132 to 76, showing a clear majority of 68 votes '. livery device was adopted by its opponents to defeat the measure bv dt lay, lut its advocates resisted all these attempts, and sc tuatcd by the popular voice of the nation, they pet fee tea this great work with energy and enthusiasm. [Krom the Houston Telegraph, March 10.] We find that an impression is gaining ground that Pre sident Jones is opposed to annexation, and the Washing ton Regular is regardtd as uttering his sentiments upon this subject We however have reason to believe that the articles in the lirgiittr are published entirely inde pendent of him and witnout his assent or dissent, as he troubles himself very little atout the affairs cf either ol the editors at Washington. Wc have " information on which we can rely," that he is a warm friend ot annexa tion, and disposed to make any honorable sacrifice to obtsin it. Hon. Davil S. Kaufman, late Senator from Sabine, Shelby and Harrison, has been appointed by the President Charge d'Affaires to the United States. Mr. Kaufman is an ardent trieud of annexation, and will doubtless make ?very exertion in his power to consummate this great measure. The Ntu'i mentions that General Aiista has lately sent despatches to our government by the way of Corpus Christi. The Went atMs : " their purport is not knowu " These despatches probably are quite similar to thou that Arista sent some yeau since to the Piesidtnt, rc questing our government to co operate with him, in su expedition against the Commanches. These Indian* lava lately become so troublesrme to tho .Mexican settle ments on the Rio Grande, that they are anxious to exter minate the tribe This they cannot sfK-ct without the sid of tho Texian government, as any large Mexican force would be immediately attacked by our Western rangers if it should bo found east of the N uecea. It oppears from a letter of Capt. Stevenson, published in the Ntwt, and written at Corpus Christi, March-21, that a large party of Commanches, supposed to consist ot 600 warriors, has gsne towards the Hio Grande, passing urar Corpus Christi. No Mexican traders had visited that post for the last four weeks. It is supposed the) were driven back by theflndians. This party of Indian* is probably a part of the lorce under the command of thv Coaamanche chief Santa Auna. [Krom Texas Papers, to March 22 ] It will be seen by our Corpus Christ! correspondence that Santa Anna is reported to have made his escape. The report will very propably prove true. h appears that Clapp k. Austin have moved their large mercantile establishment across the Sabine, ontheUui ted States side, opposite Ssbine town. They have a ferry fri e to alt Texaos to whom they offer their goods '? about 25 per cent cheaper than any merchant on the Texas side of the ri> or." The " Star" says, these merchants have a capital ot rbout }20,000, and that similar stores are scat tcr?J from the Sabine town to Red River, just over the boundary, with a capital probably to the amount of $601),. 010, ttirnisbing aconstant temptation to smuggling "It,our tariff were reduced to 10 or 15 per cent, jnost, perhaps, all tbis capital would be removed to Texas." The United States Senators must have been wonderful ly edified ny the official statements relative to the public debt of Texts as furnished by Mr Raymond, and which we publish in another column. It is to be bitterly regret ted that our Secretary of Legation can furnleh no better date than tbeee respecting this debt; hie article in reply to;Mr Calhoun is ah indirect admission that the charges ol our enemies are true; that we do not ourselves know the amount of our public debt, and that no accurate accounts have been kept in the Treasury Department. According to the report of Dr Chalmers, Secretary of the Treasury, the public debt of Texas bs compiled troth the vouchers on flic in the Treasury Department, on the 1st Dec., 1H4I, was $7,282,?88 91. Cannot the Secretary of tho Treasury furnish an accurate statement ol the expenditures and the amount of liabilities redeemed since that period 7 Barf, a does ?By the arrival of, the H. Gk King, at Georgetown, S C., on the 31st ult., we have our paper* and advices to the H'.h March inclusive, from Bridgeton. We notice in them that the Governor, the Hen. Kdward Grey, sfl'.-rs a reward, in connexion with the local authorities of Bridgeton, of nearly $1000 for the apprehension of the incendiaries who have on several oc casions endeavored to set Are to the town of Bridgeton, since the late destructive fire of the >J and 4th February. These incendiary efforts have been made to atlch an ex tent as to cause general alarm. Speaking of the sugar crop of that island, the editor of the "Standard" states that a highly gratifying proof of the progress of the pre sent year's sugar crop, the activity of the planter in get ting it to town, and the despatch which has been given to he home merchant vessels, may be gathered from the ?oct, that over 6000 hhds , besides several hundred tierces and barrels, have been shipped, down to yesterday. The French colony of Martinique has, by its vote ot 30,000 francs, shewn its sympathy for the distressed inhabitants of Bridgeton, burnt out by the late fire. The report of the Agricultural Society of St Phillip's, is highly satis factory as regarda the sugar cane. The rest of the dis tricts, owing to the drought, are not as well off, accord ing to present appearances. Practical Application op thb Magnetic Tel egraph tY rna Post Office Department.?Of fices have just been established at Washington and Baltimore, under the charge ani direction of the Postmaster General for the transmission of despatches between these two cities by means ol the magnetic telegraph. The appropriation of $S000, made by Congress, has been distributed be. tween Professor Morse and his assistants, in yearly salaries?Mr. Morse receiving 9t000, and appli cants for transmitting despatches are to pay at the rate ot one quarter of a cent for each telegraphic character on the reception of a| despatch?the offi cers are to have it translated "in a fair handwri ting, carefully enveloped and sealed, and the mag netic characters immediately destroyed," the de spatch being then placed in the penny post for de livery. Cave Johnson deserves great credit for this movement towards the practical application of this inestimable means of rapid communication Washington, Boston, New York, New Orleans, and all the chief cities of the Union ought to be thus united, and we trust that the time is not far distant when they will be thus brought, as it were, into immediate contact. Fire ?About midnight, the alarm of fire was given in the Fifth District, and it was discovered that the building corner of Fulfon and Nassau streets, immediately opposite the Utrald office, was on fire in the ground story. The fire originated in the segar store of Mr. K/ekiel, 98 Nassau street, the contents of wluch were entirely destroyed The stock of goods in the haberdashery store ad joining was also destroyed, but the promptitude and efficiency of fire companies "Protector," "Southwaik," and several others in the ward, who were ou the spot in a few minutes after the alarm was given, prevented the flimes from spreading, and saved the building, in which several families were sleeping at the tiire, but were aroused and conveyed to places of safety. We do uot know whether Mr. Ezekiel, and the proprietor ol the haberdashery, were insured, but they were the only sufferers to any extent. Fine Wool in Ohio.?We were shown, the other d?y. t sample of wool taken from a sheep belon "?< :?? the flock ol Messrs. IVikins It Brown, Kapt on Ihi' i?r it ol Cai. 8. Perkins, near Ibis village, which w*? ?.i ?''? passing fineness and beauty of texture. This spa ,'ien is probably among the best that can be obtained |r..tii this flock, many of which are pure Hason, whick h. it been subjected to e long course ol careful breeding. No exponas or labor have been spared by theee gentle men ' i obtain the flnast woohd sheep in the United Antes, and afterwards to bring them to the highest state ofp?ifection by a Judicious enursoof breeding, end euch has been their success that their floek, now, probably, yields wool of a qkality superior to any in the wkelo eouotry. A sack oi their wool wet sent to tho Lawrence Mills, Lowell, laet summer which was pronounced to bo tho best that had ever entered the mil). The wool ol eight hundred sheep belonging to this flock wee market ed tho pest season in Low-ell, lor somoof which ninety cents per pound wee received, and lor the whole on ave rage nricecf sixty-eight cents was ohteinod. Samples of the beet were exhibited at the Fair of the American In stitute, N. Y.?end alto at the Boston Institute, in both ol whieh they took gold medals. From this evidence there is very little doubt hut Petkine & Brown have a very superior flock of shoep, and that they deserve much credit for their enterprise and sagacity in thua bringing th' Ir flock to to much perfection. -Ulkrtn, 0 , Bttcun. Sketches of Philadelphia Clergymen. st. tiiomas' church, fifth, below walnut, wkst sine. Rev. William Djuglasa a/ias Black DaugLse, is ihe Rector ol St. 'Ihomao' Church, a well known place ot resort lor the colored aristocracy ol oui city.

The rector receives a salaty ot eight hundred per annum besides the perquisites, which are neither lew nor paltry. In 1835, the congregation were of necessity ob liged to obtain the servici s of a white clergy inau, as no colored one could be obtained; shortly alter his institution the vestry caused a marble slab, bearing the following inscription to be placed over the door. " The peoplu that have sat in darknrsi hava seen a great litht." GRACE CHURCH, CORNER OF TWELFTH AND CHERRY STREETS Reverend William Suddards, rector of Grace Church This divine, like route others we have had occasion to allude to, is a foreigner, and a na tive of England. He came here some twelve years ago, and undertook the charge of a parish in the dipcrse of Ohio, where he became quite popular as a preacher, and his amiable deportment won tlie esteem and respect of his parishioners In 1835 the rectorship ot Grace Church was vacant, owiug to the resignation of tlie Rev. Mr. Brinckle ; this was offered to Mr. S., and he was instituted as rec tor that same year. A few mouths after hjs insti tution, the congregation, although heavily in debt, purchased an organ to the tune of $6000; and in order todelray this heavy expense, determined to have a concert in the church, which they carried into effect, and procured the services of a number ol stage actresses, which greatly displeased their pastor, and led to a serious difficulty between liitu and his vestry, causing a dissolution of the latter and the formation of an entire new vestry. Mr 8. is a favorite preacher, and his Sunday eveuing ' services are better attended than any other church 1 in tha city. He hasawiuning and a persuasive manner, and in disposition ia entirely the reverse of Tyng, who has the reputation of being a violent and caustic speaker. It is said, by some, that " Tyng knocks the sinners down, and Suddards picks them up;" which, by the by, is a very true saying. Mr. Suddards was, for some time connect ed with the "Episcopal Recorder;" he was not, however, an active editor, as Tyng penned the the greater part ot the editorial himself; Suddards only making the selections. He published an American edition ol the "British Pulpit," which had a ready sale. With the exception ot this, he has not, we believe, published anything else. He is a low churchman, and we think, rather an ultra one; this may be owing in part to his having been trained among the Wesley an Methodists, who have loose uouons on church government and dis cipline. Alter the death ol the wealthy Mrs. \VH., Mr. S. was appointed guardian for her children, consisting of six daughters. This trust he has exe cuted with great fidelity, and has kept such a watchful eye over them, that until very lately no gentleman was able to obtain admission into the targe dosble house. However, on New Year's day, one Mr. F. managed to take a peep inside, and succeeded in winning the sff.ctions ot th? 11 >wer of the Heck, much to the regret of Mr. S , who, it is said, intended her for a young hopeful, who is a now a student in the Theo iigical Seminary at Alexandria. Since the bans have been removed, we think it quite likely thai other young men will step in, and make their se lections. Captains Stockton and Marston of the navy, attend service at Grace ; the latter is gene rally accompanied by his step daughter, a pretty young girl of some eighteeu summers; she ia much admired by the young men, who crowd the church doors to get a glimpse ot her. TRINITY CHURCH, CATHARINE STREET, ABOVE SECOND, SOUTH SIDE, (SOUTHWARK.) Rev. John Coleman, D. D , Rector ot Trinity Church. The parents ot this gentleman were Me ihodisis and residents of New York city, and wtre on term* ot intimacy with the Rev. Dr. Bond, the editor of the "Christian Advocate and Journal." After the decease ot his mother, he removed to Baltimore, carrying with him letters highly recom mendatory Irom the Methodist clergy ot New York. He was then only twenty years ol age, and at that early period his talents began to chine forth with Uncommon brilliancy. A vacancy hav i mg occurred in the Light street meeting, Mr. C.'u friends made application to the elders, to appoint 1 him licentiate, which was successful. In 1834 a copy of "Ondetdonk's Episcopacy Tested by Scrip ture," accidentally fell in his way, whice he care ' fully perused, and the tesult was, that he was led right up to the gates of the church. The Bishop el Maryland, Dr. Stone, having learnt his change ol | views, and understanding he was desirous ol en tering the church, took a lively interest in his wel fare, and assigned to him St. Stephen's parish, Ceciken. This was in 1837. In 1838, the vestry of Trinity Church, Southwark, invited him to hfs | present charge. The Doctor ia an extempore preacher, and of coiirse possesses a remarkable memory. His enunciation is not pleasant to those unaccustomed to listening to him, but after hear ing a few sermons irom him, ceases to be aa ob jection. He isahighchurchman,andaetaunch one; his vestry and flack are ditto. Daring the South wark riots, the Dr. was very actjve in condemning the Romanists for arming ihe church of St. Philip de Neri, and thus brought upon himself the ill will of the priests, who havs frequently, since then, givsn proof of their bitter feeling against him, by wickedly insulting him in the streets. In addition to performing the laborious duties of Rector ot a large city parish, he edits a high-toned periodical, the " Banner of the Cress," the official organ ot the Bishope|of Michigan, New Jersey, North Caro lina and Maryland, and is, perhaps, more promi nent as an editor than as a parish priest. He sel dom writes an editorial; if he does, it is in the shape of a review on some important publication. He depsnds for original matter principally on his correspondents, who are numerous, and who write with much ability. One of the moat conspicuous is Bishop Doanr, who is forever troubling the edi ' tor with his silly items ot " English correspond ence," written in his usual style01 pomposity. He has another contributor equally as vain and con ceited, who occasionally republishes his sermons and discourses in the "Banner." "We refer to George Upfoid, D. D , the consequential Rector ol I Trinity Church, Pittsburgh, Pa. It ia to this latter ! individual that the editor ot the "Banner" is in debted for his "Doctorate of Divinity." Dr. Coleman married some years ago the daughter oft wealthy sugar refiner of Baltimore, by whom hs has several children. She is said to be an excel lent cook, and leeda the Doctor's epicurean taste to a nicety. She is decidedly opposed to making mince pte? without flavoring them with wine. Ths Doctor, to please the views of LordjGeorge of Jer sey, and the Bishops sf North Carolina and Mary land, opposed the late decision of the House ol Bishops, in the esse of Ondernonk. The publis opinion, however, being against him, the Doctor will shortly turn a ssmerset, at leaat so say his friends. CHURCH SF THE ASCENSION, LOMBARD, ABOVE HtB, SOUTH SIDE. Rev. Frederic Ogilby, Rector of the Church ol the Ascension, is an Irishman by birth, bat emi grated to this country with Ins parents at an early age, and settled at Bethlehem, Penn. Whilst thers hs becams acquainted with Dr. Green, a physician known throughout the country, for his success ia curing cases of deafsess. This gentle man advised him to turn his attestion to the study of medicine, and promised to assist him should he ?ed fit to undertake it. At the request of his friends he declined Dr. G '? kind offer, and at their advice entered the New York Theological Seminary, and made preparations to enter the Mi nistry. After Ins oidination, he went to New Brunswick, N. J., and acted as Missionary in that place for a brief period. He afterwards went to Woodbridge, and was called from thence by the Bishop to be assistant Rector of St. Mary's Church, Barlington. He had there very excellent oppor (unities ol enjoyinq the society of Lord George, the Bishop of New Jersey, and frequently nniticipatrd in the festivities at Riverside. He could favor the publis, were lie so disposed, with a very interesting description of these intertainments, and tell us how the Bishops and Priests drauk champaigns, and de voured the choicest dishes which the epicurean pre late had placee bsfore them, and whether the Righi Reverenrlissimo arid his associates were not a little Onderdonkiih after these spiritual rrpaus. We would suggest to our friend O the ftopriety ol publishing in cheap pamphlet form a history ol thess carousing* at Riverside ; he might aaoex to it the Bishop's sermon, preached before his Phils delphia creditors, Irom the text, "Pay that thoi. owest;" it would have a circulation equal to that oi the late trial. In 1884, the Rev. N. Sayre Harris resigned the Rectorship ol the Church of the A? orn-ion, and the subject of this sketch was appoint ed by (tie vestry io succeed liirn, and of course ir High Church. With Mr. O. we have not the plea sure ot n personal acquaintance, although we Ire quently attend on his ministrations, and hold him in high esteem for the many excellent qualities h? possesses. Jn the palpit he is no favorite of ours, iiiH delivery is too slow, and he permits his voice t? fall too mnrh at the close of sentences ; besides lie has a fondness for filling hiaaenaons with quota tions mm authors, which we consider u Lull ia any public speaker. Tha Rector of the Ascension is a great punster, and fond of iovial oompany, lie was the author of a witty publication irsued last year, ia reply to the Hev. Albert Humes. It was ao sharp and cutting, and above all so true, that this latter gentleman could not reply to it. Mr. O. receives a salary of $8)0 per annum, and in addi tion to that, one-fourth ol the weekly oilerings at the altar. We ought to have mentioned that his brother is a professor in the New York Protestant Episcopal Seminary. New Orleans. [Correspondence of the Hoi aid ] Ntw Orleans, March 27ib, 1H45. Trade and.

"Camp Stkeet." City Intelligence. Fmsi. Tbii island, and parts adjacent, were disturbed from their propriety by several alarms of fire on Friday evening and Sulurday morning. The Brst was about 6 o'clock on Friday evening, caused by the discovery_of Bre in the stables ol the Waverly line ot stages in Blx'h avenue. The Are caught in the basement and was speed ily extinguished, but not before sis or seven home were so burned as to be totally blind. . . The same night about 11 o'clock, a fire broke out in the basement oi a small house No 168 Fulton'Street, occupied as a fruit cellar, segar store, Ico , which, toge her with No". 166 and 161 (the latter the Whig Log Cabin) and one or twe small huildiDgs in the rear, was entirely con sumed. Nos. 161 and 160 were considerably damaged, as waa also the Universalis! Tabernacle at the corner ol Fulton and Pineapple streets, Brooklyn. At half past 9 o'clock, a Are broke out in Itoachs planing mill, 377 West street. The damega was small The most alarming of all was about 8} o'clock on Sat urday morning, when a Are was discovered in a large irama building in the rear of 93 Forsyth street, occupied Ma factory for India-rubber goods, by a Mr. Prnckney, and picture -frame making hy Cornelius Earle, No. 99For syth street, occupied by Mr. Durande and bis brother, entirely destroyed, the Inmates barely having time to es cspe.notliicg saved.

The three story brick house No 363, oc cupied by Mr. ?oines, hatter, and Miss Lord, fires* maker, was almost entirely destroyed?the loss of the ecoupants heavy, and the rear of brick buildiog No. 266 was con siderably burnt. The factory was all on fire bf fore any of tha firemen could get there. Great praise is due to them for their exertions, as much property was saved by their promptness and activity. It is impossible to state the amount of loss. The sufferers are mostly workmen employed in tha tactory. The situation ol the fac tory whera the fire occurred, is such si to have made the destruction of property very great, it it had not been for our inestimable Croton. Nlw Co u nt En flit Bills have been put in circula tion <f the denomination of Ten Dollars, purport ing to be on the Wsktfield Bank, Rhode lilnnd, psyablo to E.

Police Office, March A.-Forqebv in Naw Bauna wice?Arrest.?A young man named Francis Youngs, a coachmaker of New Brunswick. New Jersey, was this afternoon arreatedby oillceis Relyea and Millikin charged with having forged the signature ot H. E. Wi_l lard, ol 116 Nassau street, to two notes drawn by Francis Youngs, H. K.

Stout k Sou, ironworkers,also of NewBruniwick The notes were drawn for90Jays, and mode payable atone of the New Je rsey Banks, andono was for $lst 676, and the other 1oi'$1I93I. The circumstances,as related to Justice Msrritt by Mr. Lewis Stout.ware simply these t-Youngs owed Stont and Son a debt for ironwork, and a few days since presented in pay ment thereof, two genuine notts, drawn by Youngs, and made payable to Stout and Son, and endorsed by tho Witlerdl. 8. and Sen were not sa tisfled with lh. mere endorsement,but desired notes drawn uy the Willaids, end Youngs agreed to ret them.

Mr. Lewis Stout ascertained on coming to this city, that Mr. Willard bml not signed the notes last giyen, and after an application to the police, had Youngs arrested cs loon as he came te this city. He admitted to officer Relyea that he had forged the signature, and that he intended to come oyer heie before Mr. Stout,and Induce Willard to acknowledge that the signature was genuine. Nothing else of any consequence ot the Police. Robert Owin.?Robert Owen has been hitherto known in this country as an enthusiast ardently endeavoring to improve the general condition oi all classesi but he haa been seldom, if ever, equalled as a steady persevering man ol business, as long as to be successful as a commercial man wai neces sary to forward the great object, which, at an early period he had determined to make the real'bu?i nrsa of his life. c There have been frequent imperfect sketches of hia life givenj some lately in the press of this city, but the writers appear not to know that he commenced his career as a youth in business at ten years ol age,with not snore than fqrty shillings, and that from thai period he maintained himself, and always well, too, by his regular steady habits of bust tiers, and his successful mode of carrying it on. When he had been au apprentice, from 10 to 14 year* of age, he was urgently requested, when only 17 years old, to become a partner, with halt snare, in a most secure and profitable establishment, one et the first in respectability out of London, offer, tempting as it was, he declined. At 20 ha wm manufacturing and making machinery tor him ?ell, and immediately afterwards he had the re sponsible charge of the first fine cotton spinning es tablishment by machinery that waa ever construct ed, and which in six months he so greatly ad vanced, that the proprietor, unsolicited, offered htm for his next year's service, ?100 sterling, and for the following year ?500, and other greater ad van tages afterwards. At 28, he had saved upwards ol ?3,000 sterling, and was the sole acting partner in one ot the Lrgest cotton manufacturing establish ments in Kurope, with an additional salary to his ?hare oi ?1,000 a year. In 30 years from thta pe riod he had realized profits frotn this concern, over annual interest for the capital employ ed at five per csnt, exceeding three hundred thousand pounds sterling, betides expanding large sums in building institutions to educate the population and in the current expenses oi them, and although he reduced the hours of daily labor for his work-people to ten anda halt, while many of his competitors were employing them fifteen and sixteen hours each day. He was considered so successful in all his business proceedings ttiat hie opinion had more weight upon these subjects wuh the government and legislature, and principal men ot business, than any other individual, and it was when in the midst el these active measure that he issued and eent to every member ol the govern ment and both housea ol .Parliament a letter, which was the immediate means of inducing the government and both boners of Parliament to abandon a tax then levied on the importation ol cotton of 4d per lb., winch now would amount to more thau eight millions sterling annually. At the same period, and for some years afterwards. Mr Owes carried on business lor himself and partneie uron an extensive scale.

Stonlngton improved J; Eiio Railroad J; Harlem}; Canton 1; Housatonic and Pennsylvania 6's J. Norwich and Worcester, Farmers' Loan, Kentucky O'a, Vicksburg, Mohawk, and Lv,ng Island closed firm at yesterday's prices. Illinois 6's de clined J; United States Bonk The stock market to day was not ro active as yester day, and prices for soma of the fancies fell oil'one and two per cent. The advance was too rapid to be perma nent, and the reaction el coarse expected. Those de clines arc usual on a rising ma'ket, and do not dampen the leelings of operators in the least. The bears have had things their own way in Wall street long enough, and as the bulls canuot get up au excitement in relation to the larger stocks, they appear determined to make an effort to inflate those requiring less capital to carry, and ieave the bears to take one of those fancies requiring large means to control. For the psst five or six months, prices for stocks have been,with a few exceptions, steadily declining, and the bulls have been pretty severe sufferers. There cannot be much improvement in fancy stocks throughout this month, as the bunks arrange their ;? flairs for the quarterly returns, and will without much doubt restrict their loans, and cause the money market to be very stringent until after that time, when we may expect an improvement in the stock market, which will give the bulls an opportunity to make up soaie of their losses. The impression seems to be very general throughout the street, that rtocks will take a stut In May, and make up nil they have leat. The Canal Commissioner* of this State have decidod not to alter the rate of toll* until alter the lat day of July.
