NEW YORK HERALD. New Yttrk, OKturilv/, April M, Ih4 5, Tlic Orr^oii (tacitton. n The recent intelligence trom England with re upect to the Oregon question, created a tre mendous sensation in this city for a day or two, but it now appears to be rapidly subsidies.? All the mere party journal.; seem to be atruid of touching the subject at all. This question, however, is destined to exercise (i prodigious influence on the events of the coming year?more than any one imagines. The TexaB, the Brazilian question, or any other, will be as dust tn the balance, compared with this great subject of controversy and national disturbance. We have yet to hear from the East and South, and particu larly from the great West, in order to be able to judge of the popular feeling with regard to the de claration of the British government, aa made in Parliament. Our firm belief is, that this question will exercise on the internal politics of thi? coun try, a much more important influance than the Texas question did. That question, aa brought up by Mr. Tyler, was sufficient to demolish whole batches of old politicians, such as Clay, Van Bu ren, and others, and we should not be surprised if the Oregon question, in the shape in which it now conies before the country, were to determine the next Presidential election. Mr. Polk will be overwhelmed with the difficul ties of his position?difficulties greatly aggravated by the comparative weakness and imbecility of his cabinet. It is the general belief in this com munity that if Mr. Calhoun had been retained aa Secretary of State, a different direction would have been given to this important and troublesome question, of the occupation of the Oregon Territory. And the belief is as general and as strong that Mr. Buchanan will be found unequal to the crisia, with all the other membera of the Cabinet. Mr. Polk eeenu to have uerve and courage enough, but we doubt much whether his Cabinet will back him up. At all events, let us wait and see the progress of public opinion on this most momentous and inter esting question, on which Great Britain and the United States are directly and positively at issue belore the world, without any prospcct ol a com promise based on principles analogous to those on which the question of the North Eastern Boundary was settled. No statesman in this country?no administration?no President?no Cabinet will ever take the responsibility before the fierce democracy of this great republic, ol repeating the settlement of international difficulties in the manner adopted by Mr. Webster and Lord Ashburton in the case of the North Eastern Boundary. It will be seen from our Washington correspon dence that the recent news (rom England created a great excitement in the capital. The fun is only beginning. Democratic Squabbles in the Legislature.? We give iu this dayV, from one of the Albany pa pers, a sketch of one of the recent debates in the Assembly, on the State Convention question.? From the bitter, discourteous, and savage manner in which the democratic members have conducted these debates, it is tolerably apparent that the par ty that elected Mr. Polk in this State, is rapidly approaching a state ot complete disorganization ? Tiiie convention business threatens to revolution ise parties in this Slate completely. It is denounc ed by some ol the whigs, and is supported by oth ers. Amongst the democracy it hos excited a great deal of most violent difference of opinion.? What the result will be, no one can tell. It may end in a complete disorganization of political par ties, and the upheaving of the very foundation of the State government and State institutions. It has passed the House, but has not gone through the Senate yet. The National Institute.?NVe have received the third "Bulletin" of the " National Institute," containing an abstract ol its proceedings during the years 1942-43-44-15, with lists el contributors and members. It is a very interesting document, and preBentB abundant and gratifying evidence of the practical and extended usefulness of this excellent institution. One of the most interesting features ia the opera tions of this "Institute" is the system of communi cation which it has organized with the officers of the Army and Navy of the United Statea?the Consuls at foreign ports?and all the government agents and representatives abroad. A very important and va luable mass of information has thus been already collected, and the future contributions from this source will be constantly increasing in extent and value. An interesting and profitable correspon dence is also kept up with all the principal scienti fic institutions in Europe. But it is not only by means of its correspondence alone that the "Na tional Institute" is adding largely to the treasure of knowledge. It begins to exercise a perceptible and salutary infiaence on the advancement of science and the arts in this country. A small annual appropriation from Congress would be well bestowed on this excellent institution. If thus assisted, it would very soon becomethe pride of the whole country. The friends of science and of the national advancement in literature, philoso phy, and the arts, ought to give it their united and vigorous support. We do not know any way in which the small annual subscription of five dollars, which constitutes the title to membership could be better applied. We trust that the " National Insti tute" will rapidly grow in public favor. A great deal of its success thus far, it ia proper to add, may be attributed to the zeal, industry and talents of its Corresponding Secretary, F. Markoe, jr., Esq.? He is quite indefatigable in his exertions to promste the prosperity and usefulness of the Institute. Steamboat Accidents on the North Rivkr.? Yesterday morning about 4 o'clock, the steamboat Empire, on her downward trip from Albany, met with an accident, but not of so alarming a nature as was rumored. The particulars areas follows: There being a dense fog at the time, the pilot mis calculated his course, and ran her at least twenty feet through the wharf at the foot of Nineteenth street, smashing her stem and injuring her bottom a little. As she was going at considerable speed, the concussion was very violent, and great confu sion prevailed on board tor some minutes amongst the passengers, who were taken on board the Knickerbocker,which came alongside shortly after wards, and conveyed them in safety to the city. The Empire lias been taken off, and has gone round to be repaired in the East River. Early yesterday morning, the " R. L. Stevens" met with an accident opposite "T'iank Point,"' which might have proved fatal to the Pilot, who was at the wheel, were it not for hie great pre sence of mind. Her pillar blocks having broken hor beam phot from its place, carrying with it the piston and air pump-rods, and falling with great violence on the siide over the wheel from whence the Pilot (observing the blocks give way) made an instantaneous exit. The force of the coming down of the btam bent the rodB above mentioned, which if they had broken the beam would have gone through her decks, when the forfeiture of liv s would have, in all probability, been the con sequence. The t'.eamboat "Belle" came up just ?' the mome nt and took all the passengers on board, from whence she eonveved them to their destina tion. We are requsted to state that aj general at tendance of the Committee appointed to solicit subscriptions for the Pittsburg sufferers will be. held ai the Mayor's Office, thia evening, at 7 o'clock. Foreign Naval Arrival.?Tne Sicilian frigate Urania, arrived yesterday from Naples. New York Leoislatur*.? Nothing of conse quence done in either House on Thursday. fcy We would call attention to the free exhibi tion of Plumber's National Uaguerian Gallery, No. 2S7 Broadway, over Tenney'a jewelry stotf. Modksm 8ci*wc* and Old Thkolocy.-A Geo logical Convention is to be held in New Haveu in the course of a few days, which will furnish abun dant materials for interesting reflection to the man 0 8eif*nc??ihe professor of theology?the sceptic? toe t iriii.ian an(j t},e Ctt|m a|1(j iudfpemjent 0j,. s> r\rr ot the progress of the human mind in reli gion and philosophy. Many of th? moat distin guiahed scientific men of the country will on this occasion congregate at that pleaaant little capital, celebrated for piety, clam-soup and philosophy, and a very great deal of new and interesting light will oe thrown on rocks, tetracanlodona and the books of Moses. Ot all the inductive sciences, geology is,perhaps, present attracting the keenest attention of philo an^ ** *? Produce some very re mark able results on the religious belief ofChristen om nay, it already forms the point d'aypui of numerous and vigorous assailants of revealed reli fion. Infidelity has, indeed, in one day adopted an entirely new system of tactics in its crusade against Christianity. It has dropped the old mode of warfare altogether. Instead of gross and blasphe mous assaults on the character of the inspired wri ters-instead of violent and irrational invectives? instead of course ridicule and miserable witticisms? instead of profane and impious language which dis gusted all but those hardened in iniquity, modern scepticism enters the lists against the religion of the Bible with weapons selected from the armoury of science and philosophy, and appeals tothe universe itself-to the everlasting hills and the solid crust of the globe-as presenting irrefutable evidence of the falsity of the sacred writings. Pious and religious publishers-learned and saintly wram-venerable and holy divines- are thus now seen uniting in an effort to overturn ancient theology, and all that system of religious belief] which bas been handed down from one generation to another. This is one of the most extraordinary Phases cf the age. The effect of this is manifest in many quarters. Scicntific tceptlcism is fast he coming fashionable. One cause ol the rapid pro gress of infidelity in this new guise, is th? obstinate ignorance of many of the clergy,who persist in the old literal interpretation of the Mosaic account of the creation, which has been so completely explod ed by the discoveries oi modern geologic.-a few enlightened theologians, however, yield their assent to the revelations of science, and have en deavored to reconcile them with the account of the sacred historian. But the ultimate effect of all this must be beneficial. Teachers of religion will be gradually driven from the old beaten tracks of dogmatic theology-rational systems of religious belief will prevail?and science will become the auxiliary of enlightened religion. But in the mean time, we must expect to see a general up-heaving 01 the religions opinions and|the sentiments of the age, and multitudes drifting about on the ocean of thought, lookiBg'in vain for a haven of repose, and at last lying strauded on the black shores of utter infidelity. V iewed in this, as well a3 in other respects, the approaching meeting of geologists at New Haven, will be full of interest. We shall accordingly des. patch a corps of reporters there, and give our read ers an account of all the sayings and doings of the " wiBe men cfihe East." Ma. Anderson's Benefit Last Night.?Ander son had the most splendid benefit at the Park last night, that has been given to auy actor in this city for years. The house was crowded to suffocation. A great many ladies were present, and the house presented the most brilliant appearance. After the play of "Money," Mr. Anderson was called for, and having been greeted by a tremendous burst ol applause,h<* then addressed the house as follows ? ? ?Jr (itntUnun-It is with somr slight degree of J,men.

Yet, tho' the tongue be fettered-bound, The heart will whiiper pray era profound, To bleaa and aay farewell! Some one ia the pit called out "three cheers," as Mr. Anderson concluded, and three most en thusiastic bursts of applause instantly followed.? What a contrast to the closing night of his first engagement in this city. Further from Mexico.?The Christoval Colon, Gapt.

(8igned) CUEVA8. To Hia Excellency Governor o( the Department of . In addition to the above, we have received a letter from Vera Cruz, in which it appears that there hatt been another attempt to revolutionize Mexico, and re instate Santa Anna to power. It | was only an aitempt, for it was crushed at once. [Correapondeacn of the Herald.] * Vera Cruz, 2d April, 1815. The national feelii't; is dpiiy increasing againbt the United States. Oa the 24th ult, the govern ment scut the American Minister u note signifying to him, that the relatione between the two coun try were stopped at present on account of the ta of the American government.

A Frenchman, named Ribo, who has been in 'lie Mexican service, and holds the title of epptain of a fr'gute?the *?me person who fought a duel in New Orleans wuii Senimenat?arrived hure lately, and went lo Mexico. He end- avored to get up a revolution in favor r f Santa Anua, with tue he-lp of' some other ollicers. Their cry wanvtva S,tnta Anna and the Federal government; but the volun teers turned out immediately, and made the leaders ;>r< -onern. The depositions of Santa Anna are finished and neiu to Mexico.

Bloat Alarming Fire?The Bowtry 'i Hcnlrc Ucitruytd for Hie Kirarlh ?liue?Great Danger of the HtirrouiiUliiK Buildings-? frouptutM and Kncrgy of the Kngtue, Hate anil LuUilcr Compinlcn. Shortly after six o'clock lar. evening, a tiff was discovered ia the rear of the Bowery Theatre, by a volume of smoke issuing from the windows ol the carpenter's shop, immediately in the vicini ty of the gas works attached to the establish ment. The alarm was Bounded. Several engine and hose companies were on the Bpot, but were at a loss for some time to discover|ihe whereabouts of the fire, so as to ascertain the best locality for their efforts; in the meanwhile the flime made headway most rapidly, threatening danger to all arouno, but the different fire companies were not idle,they got their hose iu order and set the invaluable Croton at full liberty. They then commenced playing on ihe rear of the building with great effect, but soon found it was useless, and then they turned their at tention to the adjoining buildings, also the wooden irame buildings on the other side ot Elizabeth street, opposite the rear of the Bowery. Tne en gines, Empire and Southwark did most essential service, the former at the rear and the latter in froat; and wherever the flames showed themselves a lresh, there were their hose directed, to such an extent that when the attic windows of the house on the left of the Theatre caught fire, they played with such effect as to wash the whole away. In the meanwhile the flames were making rapid pro gress to the front, and the heavy wooden cor nice over the entrance took tire, and spread with great rapidity to the great endangerment of the surroundtug buildings; but the activity of the dif ferent fire companies soon got the mastery and confined the devouring element to a certain limit. During this time the scene was most awful ly interesting. Here might b? seen parties, in their unxiety to save their property, dashing chairs, ta bles, beds, See., through the windows, not waiting to open them,but throwing them through thelrauies, smashing the articles to pieces in their fall. Others, far removed from the seat of immediate danger, re moved their furniture into the street, to be run ugaidst and destroyed by the engines and other ve hicles, and pushed about by the mob. Amid the turmoil of the scene, no one was more active than Hervio Nano, on the roof ot Messrs. Bartlett's Hotel, in the Bowery, calling out for those below to send him up a hose, and crying aloud that he would save the buildings. But he was unheeded; not that it appeared to be actually necessary, but at the tame time no one could have exercised himself more en ergetically. At this time the alarm was so great that every one in the surrounding buildings, for several blocks distant, began to remove all their valuibli s. At the sta bles at the comer of Elizabeth street, immediately in the rear of the North American Hotel, some difficulty was experienced in removing the hories, many of which re fused to come out in the glare of the flames; and it was only at the sugge.tiou ot a spectator, that a blanket, or horse cloin, was thrown over their heads and they were got out with safety. Now the fear was that the frame houses on the opposite side of Elizabe'.h street, at the rear of the Bowery, would rignite and be consumed, as they lay ianediately to the windward. They caught several timw; but the activity of the fire companies prevented the extension of the evil in that di rection. In about forty minutes after the discovery of the fire, the whole of the interior ot the Bowery tell,with a tremendous crash, driving the flames out te a considera ble extent, and making all these in the immediate vicini* ty fly with the greatest rapidity. The effect at this mo ment was awfully grand, illuminating the whele atmos phere to such an extent as might be seen for several miles around. The throng .that crowded every part, almost prevented the working of tlio different engines with full I'd'ect. Nor were the M. P.'s idle in endeavoring to keep order, and preventing the mob from rushing towards the adjoining buildings, or approaching the property carried out ol them. Several times did the houses on the right and left of the Theatre, in the Bowery, take fire; but a* quickly were the flimcs extinguished by the most daring acts of some of the firemen enirajed, whom we regret we cannot mention by name, in coiitequence of the confusion prevailing. 1 u about threo quarters of an hour it was evi dent that the firemen had got the mastery of the devour ing element, and it gradually subsided in one bright llame, illumining the whole atmosphete. At a later hour when the fire had somewhat subsided, it was found teat the strong patty walls had protected the adjoining building?. The whole ot the building is en tirelyidestroyed, andjwith it, unfortunately the whole ol the wardrobes of the periormeis, who will ds the greatest suffarers. It is supposed t;.ot the whole an mnt of da mage will be $-25,000 or $S0.000, and no insurance. This unfortunate place of amusement appears to be doomed to destruction. This is the fourth time it has been destroye'l in lilt>' manner. The firH time under tho management of Mr. Oilfert?(he second time under Ham bJin?the third time under Dioneford?the fourth and la?t under Hambiin again. Another Fire?The Harlem Railroad Depot, on 27th street, was also destroyed by tire between nine and ten o'clock last night. Loss not ascer tained. Ma. Murpock's Headings of Shakspkark.?* This gentleman continued his course last bight, and, for his eubjecr, took the tragedy of ?* Othello, the jealous Muorand he treated it in a truly classical style. H:a analysis of the different characters of the tragedy evince deep reflec tion on hia part, and were his ideas more j fully carried out on the stage, it would truly be purged of many ot its present impurities. Hia readings of various of the scenes were much ap plauded bv the tolerably numerous audience which he had. His description ot" the character of Iago was well drawn, and the contrast between it and the noble, manly nature of Othello, was highly shown. He touched on the various points ot the tragedy, and will continue his series ou Tuesday evening next, when the character of Hamlet will be taken up.

Graham ? bjected on the ground of the illegality of the introduction ol'suoh testimony; on the ground thst the affiJavit of a third party could not implicate his client.?A nugistrate was liotto be held liable by the mere affidavit of a party, who may chose to place it in the police office. Mr. Huffman contended that inaimuch as the affidavit in question was part of the res gista, the affidavit ought to ba introduced in evidence. Mr. Graham replied there were iwo affidavits?one taken on the 14th ol July, and the other on the 30th July, the affidavit in question was taken on the 30th of July, and the present charge being confined to tho 14th July, it wouldbe illegal, preposterous, and contrary to alllrgul rule to put the Justice on trial upjn any matter which was not specified in the charge. The question on introdueing the affidavit in evidence was taken and negatived. Mr. Patrrson hereupon tendered the affidavit of Wm. B. Lett*, in relation to the seventh specification, first charge :-th#t on the lltli day of November, 1844, Robert Vaugiian and Wm. F. P. ice were arrested and brought bc iore the said Justice William Wain Driuker upon a charge of gracd l ircony in stealing a dralt of the Rochester City Bank, upon the American Exchange Bank ot New Yerk, lor thro? hundred dollars, which ssid dralt was stolen from one Win.

The affidavits of parties proving the existence of the draft in question, were put in and admitted.

Thetehaa been a greater improvement to-Jay in stocks than has been realized for msny week* past. The salts were very laige, and prices have advanced from cno quarter to thtee per cent. Vicksburg went up ] per cent; Stoningtun 1; Norwich and Worcester ; Erie Railroad J ; Reading Railroad ] j Farmers' Loan j j Pdnnsylvania 5>j| j IUidoU J;, Kentucky 6's }; Harlem|3|; Morris Canal 1|; Long Island 2 ; Canton 3} ; Mohawk 3J ; East Boston i ; United States Bick closed firm at yesterday's prices. The feeling in Wall street, among stock opera tors, is much bet'er than at any time during the past week, ond although there are hundreds of reports current magnifying the dangers of u war with throe different na tions? Great Britain, Brazil and Mexico?there appears to have been a very audden and rapid increase in confi dence in all kinds of securities. The war fever appeata to have subsided in Wall street, and the di?po*itiou to speculate in all kinds of stock* is much stronger since the arrival of the Caledonia than before. Even in the face of a contraction in the bank movement of this city, the stock market is evidently im proving. Money is by no means plentv, and the rate of interest full up to tha legal standard. This unlocked for improvement, in the face of these facts, gives operators strong grounds for anticipating a great advance in price* after some of the difficulties in our external relations, and in the money market, are settled. The barki have deter mined upon pursuing a prudent course, audi the coati action of loans miJe in anticipation of tha quarter ly returns for .May, will not be resumed immediately af ter. The bulk of thi* spring business will by the 1st of May be over,and the demindjupon the banks for discounts reduced The mercantile classes of this city are not in a condition to command large credits fiorn the banks. The Southern and Western business for the past two seasons, has been so ut, profitable, and many houses have become so duuply involved in that business, that thu banks have, for some time past boea very cautious in ?x tendieg the credits of these house* and have no deubt by re fusiogjto discount their paper, hastened tho suspension of several. The failure ef bouses,extensively engaged in that trade, is inevitable, aud must como sooner crlater. When i wc assert that n very Urge number of the dry goods job ' bing houses, which have for anme time past beon doing almost exclusively a Southern busineis, are this moment insolvent and cannot continue meeting their en gagements at maturity much longer, we do ao for the purpose, if possible, of influencing those about involving themselves in that trade, to be extreme ly cautious and get in no deeper than they can poicibly help. The large profits of that bueines* are very tempting, and it is not surprising that new houses are anxious to get a run of it, but it is as ruinous in it* re sults, whvn carried to n great extent, aa it is flattering in the incipient stages. We have seen houses of large capi tals and immense resources become bankrupt undsr it, and no one can hope to escapo when ther risk every thing in a branch'of business that depends almost entirely upon the season*, and the price ol one of the many staple* of the country. The suocess of onr most wealthy jobbing houses, can almost entirely be attributed to a proper distribution of their credit* throughout the d.ffer ent section* of the country. A large business, conducted upon this system, may be made profitable; at all events, those engaged in it would not be subject to the sudden j fluctuation, a dependence upon the trade of one section ! of country frequently produce*. The South-western j trade of this city, and many engaged in it hsve been ! ruined this season, in centequence of the low price of the 1 staple of that section in all the markets of the world. The I solvency of the people of the 8outh, from season to sea son, depends upon the extent of the yield, and price of cotton. A favorable season, and high pi ices, liquidate* all their indebtedne**, and enable* tho*e trading with them to realise large (profit*; but an unfavorable! leason, and low prices, prevents them from meeting their payments when due; and, in many instances, ruin* their creditor*, la oonaequence of the discredit, the condition of the southern and western States has placed upon a large portion of the jobbing houses of this city?the bank* have preferred making loans on stock seourity to discount ing* business paper. These leans have, during the past quarter, been very large?too large to appear in their re ports?and a reduction has been going on within the past two or three weeks An extension, to a certain extent, will, without doubt, take plaeesoou after the 1st proximo, but we are informed that the movements of the banks, for a time, will be very prudent, and free from any disposi tion to expand beyond a safe and proper limit.
