NEW YORK HERALD. New Yorfc, Wednesday, *, 1M*. Political and Moral Reform* af tlM Mate ConiUtaUoni. One of the most significant movements of the age, affecting both tlie moral and political elements of nociety, is that resulting from the desire for change, existing in the minds of the people in various por tions of the Union, and the incorporations into their State Constitutions of new principles and new views which have been forced upon them by the events of recent years. We allude particularly to the new Constitution adopted by a Convention of the Sfate of Lc uisiana?to the passage of the bill in this State for appealing to the people in favor of a State Con vention?to the recent events in Rhode Island?and to various other similar movements throughout the country, all growing out of the same desire for ameliorating the condition of the people, and ex tending the principles of civil and religious liberty on all sides. The new Constitution agreed upon by the recent Convention in Louisiana, and which will be sub mitted to the people of that State in a short time, is very remarkable in some of the new principles in corporated in its provisions. Not the least signifi cant nre those in reference to banks?state debts? and duelling. Strong and positive clauses have been introduced in that Constitution for ever pro hibiting the incorporation of banks as chartered companies?and also the issuing of State bonds or the incurring of State debts for any other purpose than the mere expenses of the government?to which we may add, the remarkable clause disfran chising all who may be in any way concerned in duellirg. These principles, both of a political and moral character, have been^ forced upon the minds of the intelligent people of Louisiana, in consequence of the events of recent years?the extraordinary revulsion of 1887?the bankruptcy and failure of hundreds and hundreds of individuals, institutions and many States?the consequent abo lition of debts by the unprincipled Bankrupt Law, jiassed by Congress?and various other movements. The conviction has gradually been impressed upon the intelligent people of the present day, that the time had come, when a barrier should be interposed against the recurrence of such deplorable events, equally destructive to the reputation of the country, its industry, its liberties, and its morals. It is a sin gular fact, too, in the history oi these events, that the banking system, as organized in this country, has been the foundation of the extraordinary State debts incurred in various States, and may be said to be the originating cause of the repudiation and bankruptcy in these States. The licentiousness? irrelieion?duelling?and general demoralization that have appalled good men, have as naturally fol lowed from these financial errors and disasters, as the thunder follows the flash. It is a singular fact, when we look back upon the revolutionary era, that a similar series of financial events, equally deplorable in the early period of the revolution, caused the founders of the republic to prohibit the States from issuing a paper money directly by their own power, and struck from the Constitution any authority to create a National Bank. This power grew up afterwards indirectly, and we have no doubt illegally and contrary to the spirit and intention of the framers of the Con stitutions of the Republic and the various States. After the termination of nearly fifty years, a series of deplorable events, growing out of this creation of banks and encouragement of an unsafe financial sys tem, leading States, communities and individuals into all sorts of indebtedness; we find breaking forth among the people a spirit of sound sense, prudence and honesty, Bimilarto that which actuated the Con vention that framed the present Constitution. This spirit has been manifested to some extent in Rhode Island?to a much larger extent in Louisiana?and is now in its first movement in the State of New York. The new Constitution, which it is said will be adopted by the people of Louisiana, prohibits the incorporation of banks?running into State debt duelling, and various other political and moral dis orders. We cannot doubt that the people of New York, according to all appearances, will show by an extraordinary large vote upon the project for calling a Convention in this State, that they are fully dis posed to act up to the requirements of this reform ing spirit. When the Convention, meets we are quite assured that similar financial and moral, if not social reforms to those that have been incorporated into the new Constitution of Louisiana, will be adopted by the people of this State. It is very true that there is a great deal of vague theory and wild philosophy afloat in various sec tion s of society, which will, no doubt, be mixed up H'ith this movement in this State. But we do not believe these elements will be able to effect any lodgment sufficient to drive away the mo ral, political, religious and sound reforming princi ples that are at work. (Indeed, looking ahead, we see it distinctly foretold by present events that the time is fast approaching when the present bank ing system must pass away, and be succeeded by a perfect freedom to all individuals who wish to en gage in that or any other species oi business. The principles of economy, integrit]T*nd justice are be ginning to revive, after the terrible convulsions in all the elements of society and government that we have seen during the last fifteen years, both here and throughout the country. The appeal about to be made to the people of this State in favor of the con vention, will no doubt be answered in the affirma tive by an extraordinarily large popular vote, and the movement here will no doubt have a powerful influence on the surrounding States. So that there is now aiair prospect that the reforms of the present day, which have been generating during the last few years, have come to a head in Louisiana, and art now in the first stages of progress in this State? will spread over the whole country, and leave us with better principles, and more correct financial, moral and political views than we have had during the last fifty years?a period of time which may be regarded as the youth of the republic, full of enter prise, but mostly experimental and characterised by a great deal of error which time will correct. Paving the City. ? The Corporation are now patching Broadway in several places. In ten days it will be as much broken up as ever. The present mode of paving the streets is altogether inefficient. Broadway at least ought to be decently paved Workmen who understand tke business ought to be emplayed, and the streets be paved with blocks of granite. The citizens are now fully disposed to submit to the taxation necessary for making this a clean, healihy, well-paved, and well ventilated city, nut it is necessary for the Corporation to adopt some system. They may make an isolated effort to clean the streets immediately after the election, bnt in or der to attain the object fully, some regular systematic course must be adopted. Let them see to this. (toiNM Tf> the Cou.vthy.?People are beginningto go to the country. The weather is getting warm and sultry, although the city is healthy; but people want the fresh air, and the country never looked so charm ing as now?so fresh and green?ao bright and gay. All the fashionable watering places round about are prepaid to receive their summer visitor!. We un derstand that at Saratoga pre|>arations have been made on a most magnificent scale at all the hotels. The 1 'nited States Hotel has been enlarged and bur nished up in the finest style. Union Hall, and Con gress Hall are also in readiness, and they are getting a handsome steamboat on Saratoga Lake, for excur sions on that romantic sheet of water. FixmioA Electiow.?A few scattering returns are received; they show a large democratic majority on the Gubernatorial ticket. ?*ncAM Ship Caledonia leaves Liver|iool at noon to-day for Halifax and Boston. 8he is the next steamer due. Steamr* Great We?tehi return* to Liverpool on the 13th inst. Tltt Foreign Emigrants.?There is an extraor dinary contest amoagat various mtareau ia thia city, ns to who shall have the management and business of the emigrants arriving at thia port from Europe. It is expected that during the present seaaon a great er number ofemigranta from all the countries of Eu rope will reach tnesa shores than in any former year, and the probability ia that they bring with them se veral millions of dollara, a pan of which must neces sarily be expended in this city on their landing here, pay ng lor board, and for transportation up the rivers and various other ways. The contest is for the pos session of these expenditures. One of these contending parties consists of per sons who keep boarding-houses and employ " run ners,"and are also agents for steamboats and canal boats, in which the emigrants are transported to Buffalo and elsewhere. For many years this class of operators have had the monopoly of the emigrants, making a very nice business out of them, and fea thering their nests on every occasion. The instances of robbery and cheating practised upon the poor emigrants are indeed " too numerous to mention," as the auctioneers say. But the business has been too good not to attract speculators in another quar ter. We learn that a new class of operators have started a number of steamboats, and now propose to embark all the emigrants at Quarantine Ground, without their landing at New York at all, and from thence convey them to Albany at a cheap rate, then transporting them out west in whatever direction they desire. These may be sailed the steamboat runners, and they are very much opposed to the old " runners," who conduct their operations on shore. The tricks practised upon the poor emigrants on their landing here, have been so numerous and in famous of late, that the last Corporation passed a law for the purpose of putting some check to them. By this law it was proposed to grant a dock exclu sively for the landing of emigrants, which was to be under the control and management of a commit tee composed of an officer of eacti of the foreign be nevolent societies, and two of the Mayor's Marshals. The " runners," boarding-house keepers, and steam boat agents were also to be licensed, and bound in heavy penal securities for their good behaviour. This would have afforded some protection to the emigrant. But it seems that the present Mayor and his legal advisers have found some unconstitutionality in the law, and refuse to carry it into effect, thereby leav ing the emigrant still the defenceless prey of the various panies who cheat and fleece them, often even to the uttermost farthing. There are, indeed, five organized emigration societies?the German Society?the Irish Emigrant Society?the United States Emigration Society?the British Protection Society?and the Welsh Society?but they seem to be utterly powerless, and inefficient in affording adequate protection to the emigrants against the frauds and rascalities perpetrated upon them, both on land and water. Can nothing be done 1 Can no scheme be devised for the protection of these poor people landing on eur shores 1 During the present season, probably one hundred thousand emigrants may land in New York, expending, in various ways, over $500,000, and possessing pro perty to the amount of several millions. This is the "spoils" for which the sharks, on land and water, contend. Thk East India Squadron?Its Detention.? This squadron was to have sailed yesterday at the " top of the tide," and may now be '* far away" at sea. In consequence of the delay of several days in its departure, various reports have gone abroad re specting the cause of their detention. * I Among other reasons assigned is one in the Cou rier and Enquirer o( the 2d inst., that the Columbus drew too much water. It is thus Btated : U. 8. ship of the line Columbus, and sloop of war Vin cenaes war* towed by tha steamers Hercules, Samson and Richmond, from the Quarantine ground to tha 8.W. spit, on Saturday afternoon last, waiting an opportunity to cross the bar. The Columbus draws 36 feet: more, we understand, by six inches than any vessel that has aver crossed the bar. She has Jersey pilots on board. This, of coarse, was written in utter ignorance of the depth of water on the bar, or of the size of the vessels that have passed over it; and is put forth like a dozen other similar statements. Now, in stead of the Columbus drawing more water than any other vessel that ever crossed the bar, she drew less, compared with the depth on the bar, than any line of batde ship that was ever piloted out of this harbor. And the Courier and Enquirer might have ascertained this fact by referring to its own flies of 1888. In order to enlighten them on this point, we will give an extraet from that paper of December of that year. DtntTVli or the Ohio? Oionti'i Channcl.? It will be perceived by the following letter from Captain Smith, that the Ohio went to aea on Thursday through Oedney's Channel, on which there was at the time 28J feet water ! We learn from Mr. Norris the pilot, that the tide had been running ebb for some time, and that had ?he crossed the bar half an hour earlier, there would have bees at least 39} or 80 feet water. He also informs us, that the entire length of the shoal is but little, if any mora, than the length of the Ohio; and that the ship could not have gone to sea through any other channel at the then atate of the tide. (96 feet 3 inches.) V. 8. Shif Ohio, orr Sawdt Hook, j Bee. 8th, 1838. i Sib?1 have the pleasure to inform you that we got this ship under way from the lower harbor this A. M. at II, ana passed the " Oedney Channel," under sail over the bar, in 381 feet water, the shoalest part I beg leave to say, that Mr. Norrii the pilot, is entitled to great praise for his skill and coolness, as well as for his correct and gentlemanly deportment I am, most respectfully, your ob't serv't, JOS. SMITH, Capt U. 8. 8. Ohio. Com. Chas. O. Riddlkt, Commandant, fcc., Navy Yard, New York. In addition to this, it may be as well to mention, that the Delaware, drawing 26 feet 7 inches, was brought in, through the old channel, by Messrs. Nor ris and Johnson, two New York pilots, and taken out again, drawing 26 feet and 1 inch, by the same pilots. And the ^orth Carolina, drawing 24 feet 7 inches, woa brought in about five years ago through Gedney's Channel, at " one-third ebb." We could give other instances like these, but these will suf fice. These facts we deem necessary just now, in order to set the public right in this matter. Here we see a squadron detained in port several days, at a time when they ought to be at sea, and simply because those who have charge of the flag ship refuse to run the risk of crossing the bar, when there are two or three feet more water than the ship needs. Whose fault was thisl Would a New York pilot have refused to take the fleet to sea T Id the parting of a small anchor cable, the only excuse to offer the public 1 We hope the government will look into the matter, and have nothing of the kind again occur to injure this port. When we have a channel of thirty feet in depth, it is not for those employed by government, to throw out the idea that there is less. Nrw York Post OFric*.?We ought to mention the enterprize and activity displayed at the post office in this city. On the arrival of the mails by the Cambria, the clerks were ready, and the whole mail assorted and delivered before nine o'clock on Monday night. Heretofore the merchants had tc wait till the next morning for their foreign letters. Richmond, Va.?In a letter from this place, dated May 80th, it is stated,that that city is going up rapidly in improvements, three large manufactories are in course of erection for iron, steel, and wool. Geo. Taylor, Esq., one of our millionaires, purchased Spiny Hill, for $6,SCO, and intends erecting an im mense manufactory for chemicals, Sec. A young man, formerly engaged in the provision business there, disappeared^ very mysteriously, a lew days ago, leaving a number of anxious friends behind, to bemoan his early and mysterious departure. Short Passaoks or thk Steamships.? The Cam bria, upon her late trip, made the shortest passage which has been achieved since the starting of the Cu nard line, except the September passage of the Hibemia last year. From a record of the passages of all the steam ers, from the commencement, kept as correctly as the nature of the thing would admit of. we select the follow ,n^' V! which nave been made within thirteen days, and all of which are calculated from wharf to wharf. 1840.

Th* Park.?The new comedy, by Douglas Jer rold, entitled "Time Works Wonders," was pro duced last night for the first time, and was received with the greatest favor by a very elegant and crowded house. We do not recollect having seen so many ladies in the boxes for a long time. The plot of the comedy is simple and common place enough. It is briefly this" Clarence Norman," (Dyott) nephew of an old bachelor baronet, " Sir Oliver Norman," (Barry) falls desperately in love with "Florentine," (Mrs. Abbott) a boarding school miss, at the fashionable establishment of "Miss Tucker," (Mrs. Vernon.) The youthful pair elope, but are alas! pursued, overtaken, the fair one sent home, and her lover ordered abroad to learn wis dom, by his uncle. Connected with these per sonages, are "Goldthumb,"a cidevant trunk maker, retired on his fortune, and living in the first style of fashion, according to the notions of "Mrs. Gold thumb," (Mrs. Barry.) He has a son, (Crisp) a wild scape-grace, who is packed off to the East In dies to get rid of his London accomplishments, and " go down to posterity," as his father states, " on a white elephant." He returns and marries his old flame, "Bessy Tulip," (Mrs. Skeirett.) Then there is "Professor Truffles," (Fisher) on whom the charms of the well-preserved "Miss Tuck er" have made a deep impression. "Sir Oliver" meets "Florentine," is at once smitten, and soon de clares his passion. In the mean time, "Clarence" re turns, obtains an interview with her, and all her old affection bursts forth. Although she has given con sent to the Baronet, she repents, frankly telling him that she cannot give him her heart. He very gen erously relinquishes her hand, declaring that he "sought a wife, not a victim." He meets his nephew ?relents?an explanation ensues, and, finally, the hands of "Florentine" and "Clarence" are united by him with his blessing. Old "Goldthumb is also brought to pardon his son; and the "Professor" and "Miss Tucker" are also made happy. The comedy abounds with sparkling dislogue and flashes af humor. " Goldthumb" and " Miss Tuck er" are the best characters, and were represented last night to perfection. Placide kept the house in roars of laughter. Mrs. Vernon, as the conceited, af fected and silly schoolmistress, was inimitable. Mrs. Abbott was rather too lackadaisical. Barry, as the polished, formal, but good-hearted baronet, was ex cellent. Mr. Crisp and Mr. Dyott were worthy of high commendation. We have never, indeed, seen a piece played throughout in a more respectable manner. It was elegantly put on the stage, and was perfectly successful. The applause was enthusiastic on the fall of the curtain, and Mr. Placide announced the comedy for repetition this evening, amid loud and continued plaudits. Before the afterpiece " Somebody Else," in which Criap makes quite a hit as " Hans Moritz," the pretty Miss Tumbull and Mr. Martin danced the Polka with such elegance and spirit as t? elicit a very en thusiastic encore. Niblo's Garden.?This delightful resart will re open to-night for a Uut season. Several old fa vorites and Borne new faces appear. A new piece, on which no expense has been spared, will be pro duced. The best artists in the country have been at work on it for some time. The Garden is in beautiful order, and the Grand Saloon much im proved. An orchestra of approved talent has been engaged, and will give, during the intermission, the best modern music. Ethisfean Serenaders.?The concerts of this unrivalled band of musicians, at Palmo's Opera House, have been postponed until Thursday even ing, in consequence of the sudden illness of Mr. Germon. Sporting Intelligence. Centreville Trotting Course, June 2.? There was a goodly muster on this track on Mon day, some good sport being expected by the know ing ones. The sport announced was A purse $40?Mile host* beat three in Ave in harnes*. The norae* entered were? Mingo D. Bryan. Medoc C. Carle. John Anderaon Colonel Bertine. Fashion A. Conklin. Spot Wm. Whelan. The horses were called, and all were forthcoming except Fashion and Spot. This caused some little disappointment, as the knowing ones had bven betting Fashion against the Field?however, to make a sure thing of it, as they thought, offered 2 to 1 on Mingo against the field, or 8 to I against any named horse, but the odds were rather shy, and very few takers. The horses, a ter several false.statu, got off pretty well together, and kept so until they reach ed the half mile post, when the Colonel, gallant like, bid them good bye. and reached the judge's stand in 2:48. Tne second heat was a much closer one. Mingo and John Anderaon were lapped the greater part of the mile, but when Bryant began to aptilaud " Anderson," the Colonel concluded to leave tncm. The mile was completed in 2:47. The third mile was much like the first time 249. The summary of the heats, viz.? J. Anderaon, Colonel Bertine 1 1 1 Mingo, C. Voorheet -J 3 :1 Medoc, C. Carle 3 8 3 Time -1:4S, 1:47,3:40. [Mingo was entered by D. Bryant, but on this oc casion was driven by C. Voorhees.] A grand match was to have corns off yesterday over the Hunting Park course, near Philadelphia, be tween Lady Suffolk and Amencus. We may give the particulars in our next. Aquattc Sport#.?A sailing excursion is to come off on Friday afternoon, at 2 o'clock, from pier east nide of Catherine Market, to sail around Fort Dia mond and back. The boats named are the Santa Clans, Wm. Crolius, Hip Van Winkle, Sir Heqry, und Eclipse. These boats were built by Crolius, of this city, and this excursion is designed to test the speed 01 the different modelled sail boats of his building. The boat first returning will be presented with a suit of beautiful silk colors. Peytona and Fashion, says the Courier'* Balti more correspondent, had arrived at that place, and would run soon together at Canton.

Subject?"Construction of Farm Wagon* and Carts, and bast mod* of hunessing." This being one of the regular days for celebrating the solemnities of this meritorious and philanthropic Association, long before the hour appointed, the room furnished a very numerous and faithful repre sentation of the agricultural intereatsof the country. The subject announced was eminently designed to awaken the deepest solicitude, and during the usual hours appropriated to desultoiy remarks,upon general topics of Agriculture, it was evideut all were anxious for the usual intimation from the inde fatigable Sec'y, Mr. Meigs, " that the hour was exhausted"?so, that the important subject could be at once brought before the meeting, and that meeting duly organized. So it was, and Mr. Un derhill was nem. con. duly elected to the dignity of Chairman. Before the subject was announced, the remedy for verminic eflects upon pcach trees underwent a repetition of those suggested upon the last occasion, that conferred the antidote upon the Virginian vegetable-, when to the great consterna tion of all the faithful in its efficacy, a letter was read from Mr. Geo. F. Hopkins, damning the doctrine of tobacco, as heretical, and placing his whole faith, trust ana confidence ui the less vulgar, but more bitter essence of tanzey. The eyes of the club were again agreeably gratified by the ex hibition of the vegetable iron balls, that have so frequently excited the cariosity of the unenlightened in vegetable petrefactions. Then followed the annunciation of the long expected regular subject, which was fairly brought up, and after several sug gestions on the constructions of wagons, from the wheel-barrow of Adam, down to the latest mo dern invention, it was incontestablv annonncedjn a letter from a member read to the Club, that the present plan was by far the most useful in every respect, unsusceptible of improvement, and should not be disturbed. Thissubject lost, we are informed, much of its interest bv the absence of a member, who was eminently calculated to furnish materials for future debate, which, of course, will be resumed on the next day of the meeting of the New York Agricultural Club. Boston. [Corroapondence of the Herald.] Boston, June 1,1840. Attempt to Dtfraud Unclt Sam by ? Celebrated Financier and Speculator in Plainfield Bank Stock?Seisure of 1800 Lettere by TKomae M. Pomeroy, Chitf Clerk of the Boiton Poet Office, and Special Police Officer. Fearing that falie reports would be oircalated about the seizure and detention of thirteen hundred letter* cent to the Boston Post Office, by a celebrated banker and fi. nancier, of your city, to be forwarded per steamer that sailed to-day at two o'clock. I state the facts briefly, which are as follows To-day at half past 13 o'clock, after the steamer's mails were closed and settled,a carpet bag containing letters was presented at the door of the post office, at the same time packages of letters were offered at the delivery window, to be received and forwarded by the steam ship Britan nia. He was told promptly by Mr. Pomeroy, Chief Clerk, that the time of closing the mails was invariably at 13 o'clock noon, and that it was impossible to receive let ters past the hour fixed for closing,in which he was fully sustained by Mr. Moore, the British Mail Agent, and fur thermore, he was informed by Mr. Pomeroy, that the let ters were brought there illegally, without the lawfnl postage having been paid. He immediately left the office, determined on sending them by the steamer, but Mr. Pomeroy, suspecting his intentions, proceeded immedi ately to the ship, with an order from the Mail Agent to Lieutenant Dollins, Admiralty Agent in chaige of the mails, to seise and return to the Post Office, au letters and papers found on board the ship, not having passed througn the Post Office. On reaching the ship, it was found that several packages of letters had been discover ed by the Stewart; and as the steamer was leaving, or ders were given by Mr. Pomeroy to the Admiralty Agent to seize allletters found on board, and return them to the Post Office, by the Pilot who conducted the Britannia to sea, when he returns to-morrow, alter which I will be able to give you the particulars more fully. Mr. Pomeroy is deserving of much credit for detecting and arresting such frauds upon the Post Office Depart ment These letters, 1900 in number, as stated by the person offering them, were forwarded to this city, for 0 cents each, by a celebrated banker and financier. Texan News?The New Orleans Jefftrton Re publican of the 26th ult. gives /he following interest ing letter:? Galveston, May 33d, 1848.?The proclamation for a Convention is out. The ratio of representation recom mended by the President, is more acceptable than was anticipated, and this country is organizing for the elec tion of delegates. The important event ofthe day is the arrival of Com. 8tockton, with his fleet. Two days after he anchored here, Col. Love received information from a reliable source from the West, that the Mexican force on the Rio Grande, would attempt to occupy and main tain the line of the Neuces, at the moment of the com pletion of annexation. This news he communicated to the Commodore, who advised an immediate occupation ef that line by the Texan troops, offering his co-opera, tion by sea. The Commodore, accompanied by Coiciel Love, CoL Mr.Kinney, 8am'1 Williams, and C. A. Wick li/Te, late Postmaster General of the United States, will sail to-morrow to obtain intelligence, and will return in a week. In the mean time, Maj. Gen. Sherman is to visit the Executive and ask his approval and cooperation.? Should he refuse, Sherman contends that he is empower ed by the general terms oi an existing law to act inde pendently of the President, and he will do so. He will call three thousand men into immediate service to ren dezvous at Corpus Christi, and the call will be promptly, obeyed. Tilings here are in a great ferment Thk Rev. Dr. Potixr.?It appears by the follow ing, taken from an Albany paper of Monday, that the Rev. Dr. Potter does not accept of the Bishopric of Pennsylvania, unless a Bishop of one State can preach, every Sunday, in a city in another State. Rev. Dr. Potter, lector of St Peter1* church in this city, took public leave of hi* congregation lest evening, prior to hi* departure for England. He intends to leave on Friday of the present week, in the packet ship Patrick Henry, for Liverpool, rnd will be absent about thiee month*. The church wes filled on the occasion, and his address, which occupied about forty minutes in the deli very, was appropriate to toe ccca-ion, and deeply inte rerting.
