I lie nbn.-" which O'Connell has poured out against this country and its institutujne?abuse continued for ho in.my years, and diversified by nil <|,e varied lowers of malignant vituj>eration, of which that in dividual is pos esaod?begins at last to awakeu bcu riuii'iiiM of indignation in the boson* of his country men who have sworn allegiance to this republic.* In the eye-: ,,f ?,any of thein the mask which lias con cealed the true feelings and motives of that hy pocritical follower of liberty, has dropped ofi, and be stands revealed in his real character. The disso lution of the Kepeal Association at Baltimore, and other movements iu different parts of the country, have afforded satisfactory evidence that this salutary reaction had token place in the minds of the Irish "in America. But one of the most remarkable of thaso signs of the times?and a very judicious, encouraging, sensi ble sign it is is the publication of Bishop Hughes' protest against the recent speeches and declarations of O Lonuell with reference to this country. That ?? to say, the organ of the Bishop, which is regarded as synonymous with himself, comes out boldly and y in condemnation of O'Connell. This is in deed the most sensible movement on the part of tliel Bishop ,hat wo have seen for a long time, and re dounds greatly to the credit of the prelate. In the rreeman't Journal of yesterday, there we find a lading article of some length on this subject, up holding in the strongest terms the love which al Irishmen have to the country of their adojition.? ,nust ')C admitted to be correct, for in all the struggles of this country for independence, and in ' every conflict with England, Irishmen were amongst the foremost, most devoted and heroic of ihe sol diers of liberty. Adopted citizens, of Irish birth have always been us true to the institutions of this country, as those who have been bom and nurturod on the soil. The following extracts from the Bi shop s paper against O'Connell, are very pointed and severe Mr. (TConiioll is an Irish Ktatcuman, not an American lie 11 a monarchist, not a renuMirnn i?? ?ee think, judge, act or talk as a cithen of ou^Republic and it is quite unreaionabio in any one to i>xrr?nt li ?? i ' ut^r^ C onnell s views and opinions, he is to a detrreo unnl?i? ^-^ass^vwsSriaS boy could^prompTliim.00 " l? W'Wch *" Am?rican 8ch?o1 ****** * cflbrtlnr tim.0' wo must sa>' that tl'c roccnt To\as ttj!gS-3s3gEg$95F This is very just. We are glad to perceive so much good sense in Bishop Hughes and his organ. e consider this as an instalment of the debt which the prelate owes the country in which he lives, and the payment of which lias been too long delayed We give him due credit <or "? and hope far many additional instalments of the same kind before the year has passed away. In fact, the Bishop is begin ning to moderate his tone, and is becoming quite a I wamble man?sober, calm, rational and discreet. We think, however, that he has been a good deal in debted lor this gratifying d. ngc, to our affectionate advioes and fatherly ministration*. If the Bishop continne m his right mind, conducing hinu*lf with pnidence and tact, and propriety, no one wiX rejoice more than ourselves. He still occu>ie> very miportant position. We see all around us tlv I spirit offanaticism at work on the subject of slavery I splitting up churches, demolishing congregates I and agitating the whole Protectant wo lid on this Hde of the Atlantic. In its course and poliev on this! ?Object, we cannot but admire tho wisdom of the Catholic church of the United States. We do no, believe that the Catholic priesthood will ever be lound quarrelling amongst themselves on the ques tion of Abolition or any other. This onshaken I unanimity, and this superior discretion, givvs the Jtoman Catholics in this country a vast advantage over the discordant and jarring sects opposed to them. The greatest hindrance, indeed, which could pos sibly be given to the progress of tho Cntholic church, would be injudicious and indiscreet inter lerence of the priesthood in matters that do not come within the.r sphere, us, for instance, the ( .irroll-Hall movement of Bish^. Hughes. The Buhop, however, appears m?w to have got back to r,Kht tracl*, and we very ulfectionnte.ly pray that Common sense and sobriety may continne to abide with him. Straws.?It is announced that Sir Geortrc Sim|> son, and others, connected with the British in terest in Oregon, ure on their way to that terri tory, in disguise, for the purpose of inducing the Indian tribes to waylay the American expeditions proceeding to'that region. This rumor instated in eoanection with another, that two British frigates had l>een sent to the mouth of the Columbia Jiiver. The movements of the British surveying vessels which have been engaged at Boston nnd at New Or leans in examining our coast and harbors, have also excited a good deal of attention, and deem to strengthen the rumors to which we have alluded. ll would apiK'ar that the British Admiralty are deter mined to become thoroughly acquainted with the en trances to our princijial harbors and the outlets nnd inlets along the extended line of the Atlantic coast. Well, be it so. We believe we are able to prevent them from turning their geographical information to our disadvantage. Travel to Kiropr.?The packet ship Yorkshire, Capt. Bailey, will^ail at 10 o'clock this morning, if die weather [" nn'its, for Liverpool, with upwards of forty cabin passengers, livery berth in the ship will be occupied. Next Wednesday the Queen of the West, Capt. Woodhouse, will leave, also full; and on the Monday following, the .Sheridan, ( 'apt. Dfpeys ter, will sail with all herssate-rooms occupied. This season is remarkable for its outpouring of tourists to Europe. All our packet ships, as the nbove indicate, nnd steam-shii>s, go filled to the uttermost, and were there more ships, there would be more pas sengers. Among those who have depnrted and who are going, there are seekers after pleasure, business travellers, new Chnret rl'Alfaim, Consuls, Jcc. ire. Col. Wm. II. l'olk, Charge, nnd Mr. Sparks, oj South Carolina, 'Vonsul at Venice, and Major I>ave / ic, Char# to the Hague, arc passengers in the Yorkshire. They cross the Atlantic together, and ! separate in Paris. Other ships carry their share ot the new American diplomats. It is estimated that from fifteen hundred to two thousand travellers will leave the United Suites this season. Thistle Bkxkvolknt Sociktv.?The prosperous condition of this charitable society will be tound in the report of the Treasurer, published in this day's llnnht, when it would ajipeur that after expending #1,3fW +1 in the charitable objects of the institution, they return a balance ot (iff for future contin gencies.

One assembly, however, in Philadel phia. promise* to be very interesting, and that is the KyjH<roi?d Convention, for the election of n Bishop to the we of Pennsylvania. Tho principal candi date are Dr. Tyng, and others mentioned in the very interesting and readable letter of a Philadelphia correspondent, in another column. We have always been in favor of Dr. Tyng, ibr various reasons, and particularly on account of the kind and charitable feelings which he has displayed towards us in vari ous sermons and speeches, for years past. We may any with Paul?"Alexander, the coppersmith, has done us much evil?the Lord reward him according to his works." We mean to make Dr. Tyng Bishop of Pennsylvania, if it be in our power, in spite of all opponents. On tho great race between Peytona and Fashion, we made a bet of a live dollar hat with our barber, Jim Grant, as wo always do on any great occasion, und we won it?thu lirst bet, we believe, that we cvor won of him. We mean to make a bet with the same immortal barber on the result of Dr. Tyng's canvass for the Episcopalo of Pennsylvania?the . place recently occupied by Bishop Onderdonk, who , has gone the way of the flesh. We have perfect con fidence that we will win this bet. Dr. Tyng is the very Peytona of the ecclesiastical race course in Philadelphia. The interest in these things taking place in Phila delphia, is ho great that we have engaged several so cial reporters to attend the Conventions, and partic ularly the Episcopal Convention. So n full account may be expected in the Herald from day to day, of the proceedings there, until Dr. Tyng gains the mi tre. Tun WATCinviKM?The Police?The Mitrpeu Tuial.?We have repeatedly had occasion to refer to the outrugeous neglect and abuses that have ex isted in these departments ; and as frequently pre dicted the dire consequences that must flow from this deplorable state of things, in this large commu nity. We have time and again called the attention of the Common Council to the radical defect in the entire system of the Wutch and Police departments in our city ; hut we shall refer, lor the present, to our report of the extraordinary disclosures made on the murder trial before the Court of Oyer and Ter miner, in confirmation of these opinions. "When I are we to have au efficient police force to protect the lives and property of citizens'! The highly culpa ble and outrageous conduct of the three watchmen, belonging to the third district, in the watchhouse at the corner of Prince and Wooster streets, in this in stance, deserves the severest punishment; and will (it will be observed), be justly made the subject of judicial enquiry, as it will be brought before the next Grand Jury of this Court. Judge Edmonds has taken up the subject very properly; and we have no doubt, that with this example before up, every effort will be made to correct the glaring evils and abuses we have so long complained of. City Intelligence* Destructive Fire in Beekman BTKKKT?A til' A NT IT* ok Property Destroyed?A Lady nearly (mothered.? About five o'clock yesterday morning a very alarm ing fire broko out in the garret | ot the boarding house No. 14 Bookman street, occupied by Mr. John Conroy, and in the spaco of fifteen minutes from tho time I it wns observed tho whole roof was one complete mass of flames. In the apartment in which the tire broke out two females slept? ono of them got up between four and five to make some coffee, and haa not been more than ten minutes up when she observed volumes of smoke issue from tne lino of n chimney which ran up at one side of the apartment. In the front of the flue there wero two holes to admit of a stove pipe, but which had been cover ed bv a niece of papor, unknown to the family, and it is supposed that sparks from the different fires in tho house caused the paper to take fire, and there being woodwork immediately rtljoining tho aperture, in which the paper v.u,, i,sited, ignited with the paper, and consequently the I iliunci \ory soon spread with fearful rapidity. At last 1 whtjn tho uipian, who had been out of bod, saw the smoke burMiop out of ono ofth" holes.she threw abucket of water ? t( v.-fts then that the flames made a rush through t o ner"-' i hoi*, which was lower down and nearer to the ?jot. In an adjoining apartment, slept a lady who, we . l.nvi been told, was within a very short period of her nw?chm,*t,??nd was near JMling a prey to the flames. She had hor room doo? fu?tcn?d inside and did not awake until tl*> apartment was filled with imoke, when not bninir ublo to render herKrlf any assistance, bocamc quite insonntbl#* and ha<l it not beon for tho timely assistance of Mr. Conroy and others who went to her assistance, s4ie In ?11 probability, would in a few minutes have been smothered, but we are happy to say she otherwise es caped uiinjured. A* soon as tho alarm was given a number of Kire Companies were at the scene or destruc tion, and'we nevor saw men exert themselves on any oc casion wifh more energy than they did until tho flames were quite extinguished, and we particularly noticed the foremun of the Empire F.ngine Company, who ren dered most essential service in trying to save the pro perty hi tho house. The top part of the edifice is a com plete Wreck-, boiK bedsteads and bedclothes have j beon destroyed, aud in fact all the furniture and wearing apparel of the family have boon more or less injured, some by fire, soino by wat*y. Mr. Conroy and family had moved to the above residence on tho first ot the pre sont month, and had only yesterday completed the fur ' nishing and papering of the different apartments. Alto getherthc damage will be considerable, end will not fall 1 short of livo or six thousand dollars. Wo understand the entire is secured by insurance. ' The Last or the M.V.'s?His Honorthe Mayor having Stoned and approved of tho ordinance abolishing tho M u nicipal Police, detailed certain olilcors to serve upon the captains of tho several station houses " notico* to quit, couched in the following words:-?

IlAVEMEYER, Mayor of tho City of New York. The officers who served tho notices received the keys and the captains and polico were walked outside, and tho doors were closed and locked upon them. The old police still remains in force, and a number ol Mavor'f Marshal Is have been appointed to attend at steamboat pieri, lorries, railroad depots, Jtc., to lookout for pickpockets, watch stutters, and droppers, thimble riggera, Sec. Ai soon as the new police bill can become a law, the appointments of Chief of Police, Captains, and men will be made. Probably at the next meeting of the Hoard of Aldermen, tho appointments of chief of police and captains will be mnde. The police men are to bo nominated by the Assessors, and Aldermen, and Assist ant Aldermen of each ward, to bo reported to the Mayor, anil bjr him appointed. Pollcc Ofllce?May 17?Chaboe or Conshracy to Defraud.?A man named Phillip Summers, of Statcn Is land, mnde complaint at the Police olHce, before Justice William Wain l)rinkor, charging a man named Thomas Martin and Devlin, one of whom keeps a livory stable in Mulberry street, with having conspired together to defraud him out of a horse worth $70. The complain ant alleges that on Monday last he came from Staten Is land and brought with him a horse, which on Tuesday he sold to John O'Donald, for >70, receiving in payment *jl in money, and a note, as he supposed, for *lfl. On ex amining the note afterwards, he discovered that it was only for ff>, and on going to Mr. O'Donald and expressing his dissatisfaction of the bargain, O'Donald told him it he would pav back tho money and note he would re store the horse. Having spent V> of the money, Sum mers wrs unable to do so, but went to Martin, w it i whom he was acquainted, and asked him to lend him the V> telling him for wlmt purpose he wanted it. Martin 1 tol'd him he hadn't the money, but would get a man that would got back the horse if paid for his trouble, and on S assenting, Devlin was brought and| consented to get back the horse|if paid a dollar for his services. 8. then irave him the 113 and nolo for *!', and Devlin making up the sum received for the horse, paid it to O Donald, and received the animal. Summers then asked for the horse, hut Devlin refused fo give it him, and having waited till to-dar, and being still unable to obtain it, he made the complaint. The parties accused came up bofore Justice William Wain Drinker, but went nway again, promising, as tho reporter was informed by the clerk, to come back again and give bail. Not doing so, a warrant was issued I forthoir arrest.

DEFENCE. Mr. Wabner opened the caso for the defencc. Before proceeding to present the defence they intended to set up for the prisoner, ho begged to call the attention of the jury to some circumstances in relation to tho prisoner, which he deemed essential to lay beforo the jury. First, as to his being a poor man, and having no mean*: and, was unable to pay tho 0X|>enses of witnesses. There was another misfortune -the prisoner was a long time detained in prison)in consequence of the late trial in the Court of Over ami Terminer, and the inability of the,Court, as well as other circumstances, to have a trial before the present term, so that many of the witnesses were now in New Orleans, whoso testimony would be of essential benefit to the prisoner. Mr. W. went on to commont upon the tostimony, and proceeded to define the character of murder, contradistinguished from the various grades of manslaughter, contending that the ut most magnitude of tho criino with which the prisoner was charged, could only amount to Justifiable hooiicide; but, even in this mitigated form, they could not find the pri soner guilty. Tho fact of the robbery was not to be doubted for a moment, and tho absence, therefore, of all motive, upon which they groundod the caso for the prose, cution, was as manifest as noou-day, and fully entitled the prisoner to acquittal. If the prisoner committed the murder, also, under the influence of feelings such as in duced him to believe that tho colored man hail robbed him?if ho was under this delusion, and also laboring under that temporary malady called delirium tremens ?it was perfectly manifest that ho was not in his senses ; and thcrofore was unconscious of what he was about. In viewing tho caso in all its aspects?taking into consideration tho tact of the robbery?and all the circumstances of the case?it was perfectly clear that the prisoner acted in self defence. But there was ano ther aspect in which he would put the case of tho prison

or?it may startle them?but still ho meant to contend, that if Jones stabbed any one at all that night, it was some other than the deceased. The tostimony of Sarah Smith showed that ho wore a rod flannel shirt. Thoy had it however from other testfmony that it was a differ ent sort of shirt altogether ; and he foundad his theory upon tho discrepancy to be found in the tostimony of the witnesses for the prosecution, both as regards time and identity ; and he would bo able to ihow by witnesses these facts. The first witness called was Justice Osborne, examined by Mr. Warner?I know the witness Sarah Smith, the colored woman; I would not believe her under oath; I have known her for the last five years; her character is bad. Crof~:xamined by Mr. Patebson?If she swore to a fact I would not bolieve her; I may believe her if she swore to an isolated fact under particular circumstances; if she should state her particular occupation, I would be lieve her; wo take tho affidavits of such persons every day at the police office. Mr. Paterson?Then if you do, why should you take thoir affidavits? Court?That has nothing to do with the case. Mr. Paterson?I am entitled to havo this explained. Mr. Brady?Well, this is out of all rule. Tho Dis trict Attorney himself, in the Court of Sessions, often says, that some witnesses are so bogrimed with crime, that they ought to be turned out of all kinds of worlds. Court?I don't think this ought to bo allowed. Mr. Paterson?Very wall. Witness here withdrew. Justiec Matskll testified that Sarah's character was bad. Ho would not believe her under oath, unless it was corroborated.

Jones ; he lived with me for a year ; he was always a quiet, sober, honest man ; 1 remember the night of tho 18th of August; I washed for him ; he came to my liouse on that evening about 8 or 9 o'clock : he changed his linen ; he put on a light bluo shirt; be lelt my house about 11 o'clock ; 1 was up in the room, and ho had some beer; 1 saw him next morning aftor breakfast; 1 saw him on tho Tuosday, Wednesday and Thursday follow ing. Cross-examined by Mr. Paterson.?Jones and my hus band drank togother ; I dont remember if my husband gavo him $4 that night; 1 was not drunk that night; I may have taken a glass of beor with my husbaud, but 1 do not got drunk. Oeobue Downes, a watchman, produced, examined by Mr. Warner.?I do not exactly recollect the night; 1 recollect the prisoner told me that he was robbed that night, and his coining to the wutch-houso ; he said that he was robbod of his pockot book, and that his hands were pinioned backwards by one of tho persona who robbed him, while the other man put his hand in his pocket and robbed him of his pockct-book ; ho said he regretted his papers moro than the money that was in his pockot-booK ; I did not go with him; he told me he slabbed one of thv men in the neck; lie remained a good time in the watch-house ; I made no report of the matter to tho captain of the watch ; he went away after a few hours : I did not keep him or go with him. Mr. Paterson.?I shall not cross-cxaniino him. Court.?Why did you not report this to the captain of the watch ? Witness.?1 did not tell it. Court.?I should like to know why you did not con sider it your duty when a person comes to tho watch house and makes a report of two such dreadful crimes as murder and highway robbery?I should like to know why you did not consider it your duty to tako notice of it. Witness.?Well, I did not make any report. Court--It is a deplorable state of things in this large community to witness audi a gross violation of public duty. All this might have been avoided were it not for theso watchmen. I shall take caro and notico the matter to the next grand jury. William Walton, examined by Mr. Warner?I am a watchman; I was in tho watch houso when Jones came in: he spoko English, and said ho was attackod by a parcel of ruffians, and robbed of his clothing, consisting 6f things he got from a washerwoman, and liis pocket book; and said lie stabbed some of them; and he was complain ing of the Police, thero not being a snlficieut Police to guard the people at night; ho was intoxicated, and want ed to know how he could get hi* things; he said lie work ed at tho Foundry in Greenwich it.; he said ho worked in the Foundry; when I saw tho advertisement in the pa)>cra 1 talked to Mr. Downes, the watchman; he stop ped over an hour. To the Coubt.?I did nothing about tho matter; 1 pass ed it over. Court.?Was it not your duty to do something about Witness.?I know my duty, and I did not go. Court.?Do you mean to i;ay, sir, that it woa not your duty in such an emergency to have gone .' Witness.?(With tho utmost coolnoss and noncha lance)?I hope I know my duty; to err ia human. Court.?Vou did not know your duty, sir, in refusing to go. It must be a great misfortune not to have this done. All thia might have been saved if the watchmen had done their duty. All is owing to the neglect of the public officora. I shall tako cato and have the matter carefully investigated beforo the next Grand Jury. I have takan down the names of thasa watchmen. There was a thrill of indignation throughout the Court room as these witnesses left, as all set:mod impressed with tho conviction that tho entiro of this melancholy tragedy could have been avoided by proper vigilance an<! attention on the part of these functionaries. Fbancis Hkynes, pawn-clerk to Mr. Simpson, testified that a man whom he bolievod to bo the prisoner, went to his office the day after the murder to stop tho delivery of pledged articles in the ovont of their being called for, as the tickets were stolen.

In the course of his Honor's remarks, he took occasion to mss a just nnd indignant commentary upon upon the lighly culpable negligence of the wutchmen in refusing to go with tho prisoner on npplyingto them for aid. Ilr considered it war, one of tho most extraordinary features of the case, that those who woro clothed in au thority, tho guardians of the city during tho silent repose of tho night, when a complaint was made to them that two such dreadful crime* as murdor and highway robbery wcro committed, that they re used to goto tho scer.o of thoso dreadful oflonces where they could havo arrested ull the participator*; an?l that nothing was done about it. A man enters a com plaint at a watch house that murder and highway robbery were both porpotratod ; and not one word was said about it!!! It is certaiuly ono of tho most extraordinary things 1 have yet known in the annals of our jurispru dence ; and the whole of this business could have been stopped had thoso sleepy and careles* guardians done thoir duty. What would have boon tho condition of this business had they gone with tho man whon ho made his complaint I Would the prisoner be now on hi* trial for this chargo 1 When I look upon the conduct of those nion, in ovory aspect; it i* impo*aible for mo to do so without shuddering at the maoner in which they have neglected their duty.

A number of recognizance* were forfeited in cases ol grand larceny, petit larceny, keeping disorderly house, and assaults und batteries. Trial fur Prlil Larceny?Second Offence.?Thomas Mo ran was tried and convicted of a petit larreny in steal ing, on the 44th April, four silk kerchiofs from the store of George Cassline, of No. 34 Bowery. It being his se cond offence, he having been convicted on the 'JCtli of April, 1641, of petit larceny, and sent to the penitentiary for 6 months, the Court sentenced him to State Prison at Sing Sing for 2 years. Male iMtidlord vs. Female Tenant.?Michael Shaw, a person about 40 years of age, with a very unpreposses sing appearancc, appeared at the bar for trial on a charge of having committed an aggravated assault and battery upon a young woman namod Sarah Hart, on the 33th of November, at No. 44 I'erry street. Mix Hart testified that her father had rented a room of Shaw, and that on the evening of the 2Hth, Shaw came into her room with out knocking, tearing open the door with such violence as to break oil'the knob. Witness started up from the side of her little sister, with whom she was lying upon a bed on the floor, when Shaw said, "Ood d?m you, aint you going out of my house?' Witness, very much frightened, asked him what for, whon he seized hor vio lently by the throat, and choked her. He then picked up one of the chairs to throw out into the entry, when wit ness shut the door; whereupon Shaw seized her by the throat agaiu, and choked her. Witness then ran into the entry, and putting her head out of the window, cried " murder," and " watch;" ufter which a Mr. Ainsly came up, and they went away together. The choking was so violent that it left marks upon her neck. An infirm old gentleman, with a rubicund visage, namod Ainsly, swore positively that he followed Shaw up into tho room rented by Miss Hart's father, and that Shaw did nothing, and said nothing, but stood with his hands in his pockets. Tho on ly excuse for the brutal conduct of Shaw appeared to be that the father of Hart was twelve tkillingi ia arrear for rent. Miss Hart was an exceedingly modest and inter esting looking girl. Her father is a tobacconist, in a small way, in one of tho avenues. The jury, after a very short absence, found the accused guilty. Sentenco sus pended till Tuesday.

Knowing that your paper is devoted to the good of I the community, I desire, through it, to suggest the ' absolute necessity of a large Alarm Bell in tne first section of the first Fire District. To prove the necessity of this, it is sufficient ts I state that the alarm bell for the late large fire in Se venteenth street was not heard by half the firemen in that section, whose first intimation of the confla ([ration was their seeing the companies from the ower part of the city coming to it, and there is little doubt, if u sufficient alarm had been given in the first district, that the stable in which the fire originated, would have been the only building consumed. When the wind is West, North West or North, j the insignificant bell on Jcnerson Market, surround- j ed as it is by higher buildings, is entirely useless.? ' A sufficient one in Abingdon Square, or the neigh borhood of the old State Prison, would have been the means of saving much valuable property from de struction. You will do a good service to that portion of the city by calling the attention of the new city admin istration, to what is so very important. The Firemen of the First Section op First District. Discovery of Ancient Treasure.?We find the following story in the Columbus (Georgia) EnqHi rer: We learn that a large deposit of silver coin was dis covered about two weeks since on the east bank of the Altamaha river, about Ave miles below the junction of the Ocmulgee and Oconee, in Tatnall county. The place is called Milligan's Bluff, near Hall's Ferry. The circumstances related are, that a maiW)y the name of John Mazo, discovered three dollars, Wnchhad been ex posed by the blowing up of a tree. He commenced ex amining the earth below .and the coin continued to appear, until he had exhumed the handsome amount of forty-five thousand Spanish dollars. They appoared to have been I depositod in canvass bags, and at some remote period, as the latest date on the coin was over 160 years since.? The place where they were found had the appearance of an ancicnt fortification, such as are common in many [ parts of Georgia, several of which may be seen in the vicinity of Columbus. When or by whom this deposit I was made, does not admit of a reasonable conjecture. It is undoubtedly, from the date of the coin, more recent than the expeditions of De Soto and others, of which we have somo authentic account. The money, wc under stand, was found on the land of Mrs. Orny, a widow, in needy circumstances, and a relative of the fortunate dis coverer, who has shared it with her.

Wl li fiwriih excitement, to the ap. proachlng Diocesan Convention,which will he organised in SI. Andrew * Church on Tue*day neat, at 6 o'olock, I' M Its most important businoss will be the election of a successor of the Apostles and of tlie night Reverend Henry Uttick Onderdonk. 1). D., who reiigued hit po?t on account of bodily infirmity. 1 um glad to learn that you are mlivo to the intere*t* of thin momentous subject, and that you are coming out .o generously, .o disinterestedly, and so piously in favor of our common friend, the He?- Dr. Tyng, the evangelical candidate for that exalted station. The Doctor wUl doubt less prove a worthy successor of the impotuous Peter, ami if lie do not cut off the ears of some of the servants of tho I link priests it will be because he may not carry a sword There is great uncertainty as to the result of the Con vention's action; the genoral impression, however, ap pears to be, that Dr. Tyng's prospects are, at present, a little overcast. In a few day* all suspense will be re moved, and the defeated party will have an opportunity of manifesting tho Christian grace of submission, a virtue which has not been very graciously exhibited in certain quarters, of late, and which, I opine, will be no easy task for those who may be dreaming that, through the contingencies of faction, they may slide into power and place, a la James K. Folk. Doctors Bull and Upfold,named by your correspondent the other day as candidates, have not been thought of in connexion with the Episcopate. The former has no de ?iro for the office of a bishop; the latter ha* been sighing alter it all his ministerial life, but may as well give up all hope of ever obtaining it. The only persons Delong ing to the Diocese who are seriously thought of, are Dr* Tyng and Bowman; the latter being a staunch Pu seyite and the candidate of the high church party. Oth er* not of the Diocese, are talked of, iu the event of a failure to elect ono of the two last named, and of these Dr. Potter, of Schenectady, is the most prominent. Dr Tyng is the choice of the laity, and if he be defeat ed it will he by the clergy, notwithstanding the fact that that body will have a decided majority of evangelical churchmen in the convention. But, unfortunately for the Doctor, there are, among those who sympathize with him in church principles, too many weak, timid brethren ?well moaning enough, good, pious, and exemplary in the highest degree, and, moreover, sound in the faith? who are afraid to have over thorn, in the Lord, a spunky, flory, impulsive genius like him. Exceedingly amiable themselves, and oxcessively cautious in overy step they take, and every word they utter, and every idea they seize, they don't like to run the risk of being stirred up a little too much by tho zeal and energy, or, perchance, the imprudence, of a thorough-going, liard-working, go ahead-keep-moving overseer, such as the Doctor would make ; and hence it is to bo feared that tome good, peaccable, inoflensive, unobtrusivo, harmless, obscure individual, may be elevated to the bishopric of this great State For tho glory of tho church, let u? hope other wise ' We should bo thankful that the dreamy days of the church are fast passing away, and drones in the priesthood are beginning to De looked upon as indolent ulcers, which require caustic visitations. The fact is, Stephen II. Tyng is just tho right sort of man for tho times. In these days of steamers, electro-magnetic cur rents, big noisy guns, " big mares," 8cc., we want none of your lazy, inactive, slowly-moving, dead and alive characters, lor any enterprise, and loast of all for the glorious enterprise of converting the world. -Men whose voice has never been hoard save in a small country parish, or whose influence has never been felt beyond the circuit of a few families, are behind the age ; and woe be to the church when she adopts the political tac tics of availability, because of obscurity. Let the golden candlesticks of the church bo put in her high places; let her distinguished sons bo the recipients of her honors: let those whoso zeal piety talents, learning and eloquence have reflected honor upon herself, be the ones to bo rewarded by her. Away with the men who have not abilities enough to be envied, are not conspicuous enough to have enemies, have not wit enough to make fools feol flat, and have never said or done anything to give offence. True, un known men are generally the most dangerous competi tors for offlco. ?Greatness excites envy, hatred and oppo sition, and the greater a man may be, the more he will be despised. Who was ever more bitterly hated than was Henry Clay? In the Church, a* in the State, whom no body knows, nobody opposes; and electors will often rally upon an accidental nomination, and never discover their mistake until too lato to rectify it. After all the canvassing which has been going on of late, alter all the hard thoughts and bitter words which the followers or the meek and lowly Jesus have expended upon each other, it may be, that, upon these very principles, some new and successful candidate will be brought lorward, and " bruised aims,4' used In conflict for others, may be " hung up for monuments." Admired and loved as Dr. Tyng is bv many , there are some who despise him as they do snakes and snapping turtles; there are little cross-grained priests about town who would run him threugh if they had a chance Hence we need not wonder at the violent opposition whioh will be made to his election. But never let us despair of vic tory; let us look at the contest in its true light?it is, I'uscyism or Dr. Tyng! That is the question, disguise it as they may. And now, all we have to do in conclusion, is to go to work and place the mitre on our dear brother's pate, and if the Puseyites don't impress too many of the short sighted sinners, who belong to us, we will triumph ! It will be too provoking to sec the Protostant cause, tho cause of tho gospel, defeated by the treachery of those whe, professing to bo ministers of evangelical religion, are yet willing to throw themselves into the ranks ol Pu scyism, to tight against the long tried, faithful, and dis tinguished champion of their own principles, merely be cause of some petty personal dislike or mean suspicion! Away with such soldiors of tho cross! Stir up the clergy -wske up the laity to an effort for spiritual freedom emancipation from tho thraldom of a system which would sit in the templo of God, as God. Let the world and the Church present a united front against Bishops Hughes and Doano, Ondcrdonkery, Puseyism, and the To return to the subjecUof the Convention?both par ties high and low, are busily preparing for battle, each engaged In the apostolic work ot catching men?doing everything in season and out of season to insuro succes*. Tho friends respectively of Bowman and Tyng, have airrced to run thorn for I'rcsideut of the Convention, drop ping Dr. Bull, who served at the last session, merely for the purpose of testing tho strength of each party on the uuestionof the episcopate. If neither of tho two can lie chosen President, Dr. Bull will bo placed in the chair. Dr. Tyng will then resign his claims upon the succession and new nominations will be made ol such men as Dr*. Potter, Anthon, John*, Muhlenberg, Vinton, Stone, and it may be, Archbishop Whately of Dublin. ^ ^ The African Slave Trade.?The Sierra Leone Watchman of the 18th of February gives the follow ing items: ft in stated that the slave traders at Sea-bar anil in the River Gallinas had been much emboldened by the prose cution of Captain Denman, in England, for his summary destruction of sundry barracoona, and openly asserted their determination to sect redress in the i'.ngllsh courts if they were again molested in their operations. Tiie Rev. William Raymond, the inissianary who went from this country with the Africans of the Amistad, writes from his Mendi mission-house. Little Boon River, January 8, and gives a picture of bis trials. It seem sthat Mr. 11. had been the bearer of a letter from the Governor of Sierra Leone to the King of the Mendi country, by which that personage was greatly angered, as well as by various hostile demonstrations of tlie iiritish against the slave establishments at Seabar ; all which he imputed to the agency of Mr. 11. He said that if the Knglifh wanted to destroy the slave trade, they must destroy one half of Siarra Leone, for half of Sierra Leono was encased in it, kc. After much talk of this kind, in which the King in voighed bittorly against the Knglish and their attempt* to destroy the trade, ho told Mr. R. that ho must go ; and finally gave him a written notification that he must " clenr out" before the 7th of Kebrury. This King bears the name of Honry Tuckor, but it does not appear whether he is an African with an English name, or aetuallv a white man. Mr. Raymond ascribed his conduct to the instigation of Luiz and other slavo traders, ilis Icttor?which is addrossed to the superin tendent of the Wosleyan mission at Sierra Leone?ask< for advice at to the course he had better pursue ; whether lie should go away or remain and trust to the aid ho might receive from the men-of-war, the.. The Watchman says that Commodore Jones had re solved to protect Mr. Raymond and suppress the traffic by alljthe means in his power.
