NEW YORK HERALD Ntw York, Thursday. October !i, 1M5. Steam Ship Cambria. This steamer is fully due, and we ought to re ceive her news this morning. Mackenzie'* Book?The Letter* of J esse Hoyt and Jaine* Gordon Bennett* We give in our piper of this morning, the letters attributed to the editor of this journal, James Gor don Bennett, stolen from the Custom House, and surreptitiously published by a fictitious firm, " Cook At Co., Boston," but ostensibly purporting to have been given to the world by one William L. Mac kenzie, a Canadian refugee. We mingle with those letters, the letters written by Jesse Hoyt, Esq , to us in the year indicated, in order to place before the public the whole of the facts relative to the charac ter of our connection with the Van Buren party, be tween the years 1823 and 1833. We publish these letters in eur possession, written by Mr. Hoyt, for the purpose of repelling the gross and slanderous imputations made against us, by the pamphlet of Mackenzie, and for which he has the consummate impudence to a|>ologise, in the following terms, in a note addressed !o us: _ _ WlUL|AM??URoH, L.

It is, indeed, very evident, from this note from Mackenzie, which we have just g.ven, tfiat he is merely the instrument of others, who keep behind the curtain?that there are parties to this transaction still more wicked and un principled than Mackenzie appears to be, and who will be brought forward in due process of time But iu the meantime it ,s mo.t remarkable that the persons then office ,n the Custom House, from ali the evidence which has been presented, were perfectly acquainted with the whole affair; and what is even more striking is the tact that Greeley he McElrath, with some of their confederates, were equally well acquainted with wnat was going on. .?>' reiiPect to the other charges and inuendoes against us, we despise them from the bottom of our heart, and care nothing about them either one way or the other. We do not care if the whole of our connection and the history of all our acts, and say ings, and doings with the Van Buren party during the entire period of our connection with them were published to the world to morrow. I commenced my connection with the newspaper press of New \ ork in the year 1824. From that period up to 1827 or 1823, I had no particular predilection or fancy for political matters. I wrote and reported aad furnish ed articles for several |>aper8 with which I was con nected, but it was not till 1828 or 1829 ihat I became intimately associated with the movements of the V an Buren or Jackson party of that day; and that connection was effected without any violation 0/ principle without any improper conduct?withouj anything disreputable to myself as a man of inde pendence and honorable feeling. The letters pub lished by Mackenzie refer to two periods of my life ?the first embracing my connection with the Van Buren party in 1829, when I was negotiating an ar rangement with Webb, in relation to a position with tfie Courier 4- Enquirer. I consulted and compared notes, and looked on all these matters with Hoyt and his associates, nor was there any thing im proper or unbecoming in any of these sayings and doings. I became connected with the Courier during that year, 1829, and my connection w ith it continued till 18J2, when I abandoned it in consequence of its abandonment of General Jackson and his administration. I then removed to Phila delphia, purchased an interest in the Pennsytvanian there, and commenced a movement for the purpose of elevating Mr Van Buren to the succession alter General Jackson's second term. In all these move ments and matters I was open, above-board, frank, without any reservation or equivocation. In my newspaper operations in Philadelphia I wanted u loan of some money, and I very naturally turned my attention to the friends I had left in New York, whose cause I was advocating and who sym pathized with xny movements. Hence the corres pondence ibat took place between Jesse Hoyt and myself,and hence, after a time, the issue of it as there seen, which ended without effecting anything at all. My own personal friends, however, supplied me with the funds, which were repaid at the proper time, and I still went on supporting Mr. Van Buren and hia cause in Pennsylvania, it is of course very easily explatned why Mr. Van Buren and his friends, knowing that ihey had treated me very badly, could not conceive how 1 could entertain any feeling of friendship for ihem, and they very meanly and se cretly went to work to create a difficulty with me in Philadelphia, and ultimately to produce an explo sion between my partners and myself, which ended my connection with that paper and also my connec tion with the Van Buren party. When I first entered Tammany Hall, I entered it as an enthusiast studying human nature, as a young man would enter a new country, full of interest, and deriving advantage from every movement and every -ight 1 kept a diary during the whole period of my ? onnection with that party, and the sentiments there n recorded, just as they occurred tome, still remain. .m< are the very sentiments which I entertain at this hii'mkn1 '?"n^ out 'he hollow-heartedness and rieal rnen'T ^ f ,K)ll"cal aB?ociations and poli breadth esos" a*?"

Having thus placed ourselves in a proper position, so far us regards these matters, we shall go on and review the remaining correspondence, and letters, und developenients in this book, without fear or af. fection towards any one, und endeavor to deal justly and accurately with all parties concerned. Later from Caraccas ? By way of Philadelphia we have received Caraccas und La Guayra papers up to the 5th inst. The President of Venezuela?accompanied by Mr. B. H. Wilson, the English minister to that Repub lic, had gone on a visit to Maracay. The opposi tion papers are very violent in their strictures on the uctions of the government, and intimate that this visit ol their executive to Maracay is with a view to take steps to put a final extinguisher on the li beral party of the Republic. They also accuse Ge neral Paez of aspiring to the Presidency next year. The partizans ol Gen. Paez in reply to the asper sions of the opposition we have just quoted, state that so far from Paez being ambitious to aspire u ths Presidency in the coming elections, he has dis tinctly refused that office, though he had friends suf ticent to elevate him to the Presidential chair. He made a speech telling them that he by no means de sired it, and that if the question was forced on him he would leave the country. He also was opposed to being elected on the ground that a civilian only ought to till such an office. The merchants and business men of Caracas had petitioned the city government to enact laws pro hibiting the opening of stores and transaction of bu siness on Sundays A.nti Kentism.?They have at last brought one ihe trials at Hudson to a close, and sentenced one of the anti-rent leaders to the State Prison. To accomplish this feat, several protracted trials and a large expenditure of money were necessary. Yet how long will it be till the Executive of the State pardons the convict ? As soon as his aid is deemed necessary in electioneering, probably. In Delhi, they have commenced the trials, but hundreds fill the jails there, and it would take years to get through with the calendar. All these trials, in fact, will do nothing to cure the\disease. The trading politi cians have fastened on this anti-rent movement, and they will go on till the rights of property be overthrown, and all the owners of real estate, in city and country, be reduced to the sani' condition as the Van Rensselears and other landed proprie tors in this State. The Mormon War?The war upon the Mor mons has at last begun as we have all along predict- j ed. N'o one can tell where it is to end This re ligious fanaticism is a curious and eccentric ele. ment. The imposture ol Mahomet sprung up in the East in a state of society in some respect similar to that which now exists in the Western States of this Union. When Mahomet appeared in Arabia, the Christian world, as well as the heathen world, was split up into a variety of contending sects. Such is now the condition of the West. Who can tell where this extraordinary movement is to end T Our Relations with Mexico.?The Wra?hh*g ton Union is now hard at work exaggerating every rumor from Mexico, and endeavoring to persuade its readers that there will be war with Mexico despite of all the facts to the contrary. We believe that this is all done designedly, for the purpose of justifying the expenditures of the government, and aiding the views of those who have the chance to make the most out of the warlike movements in Texas. Curacoa.?By the packet barque J. A. Jesurun, Capt. Vinall, fifteen days from Curacoa, we learn that that island continued heaithy, although the crops were likely to suffer from drought. Baron Vor Bonders, ex-Governor of Curacoa, was to sail the day alter Capt. V. lelt, for Surinam, ol which placi the Baron had been appointed Governor. Curious Circumstance.?From information com municated to our Brooklyn reporter, by a gentleman of well known respectability, it will be seen that a large amount of money was picked up near the Fulton Ferrv on Tuesday morning. May not this have some connection with the Rowley robbery 1 Mail to Mexico ?It is officially announced that the steamer Princeton will ply regularly be tween Pensacola and Vera Cruz, as a mail steamer. We may, therefore, be able to hear, by this new route, from the latter port once or twice a month. Sporting Intelligence. TrOTTIXO OTZR THt Ce*TRETILLE TRACX?Tl'ESDAV. ?The judges have given a written decision in the affair of Henry Clay and Nell Gwynn, after some considera tion. It does them credit. But if the proper spirit of (porting is attended to, there would have been no neces sity for such squabbles and squabblers should be avoid ed. It is a notorious fact that such have become very prevalent of late See advertisement. The Lste Pedestrian Match.?We have heard some ugly rumors relative to the late affair between Jackson and Barlow, as to the impression abroad, but we "bide our time." We have a few facts that will tell on the subject. Criceet.?The second eleven players of the St. George's Cricket Club, ol this city, left last evening for Philadelphia, to play a friendly game with the se cond eleven of the Philadelphia Club, which comes off to-day on the ground of the latter, in Camden. On Mon day next the first eleven of both these rlubs, meet for a like purpose on the ground of the St. George's Club, on the Bloomingdale road A return match is to be played either in this city or Philadelphia, at the option of the Philadelphia players, when it may suit their conveni ence. It is stated that another match is likely to come off within ten days or* fortnight, between the New York and the Newark clubs. An interesting game of single cricket came off' yester day, on the ground of the New York Club, lloboken, for a pair of bats, between Mr. H. Wilson, of the Brook lyn Star Club, and Mr A. Barnett, which were won by the former in fine style A second match was played by the same parties, for a ball for the Brooklyn Star Club, which was also won by the same gentleman in like man ner. The New York Cricket Club held their anniversary yesterday, when officers for the ensuing year were elec ted. There was a long palaver about making matches, fcc., but it was all talk.

Bowkit.-The crowded houaea that nightly " till to overflowing full," thia attractive aource of evening recre ation, 1* a sufficient proof of the high appreciation in which the efforts of ita proprietor are held by the play going public. The cordial support which the theatre has received siuce it was last o|>ened, speaks largely for the good taste of the denizens in the vicinity of "old Bow ery," while the attractive bills which are nightly present, cd, prove the deep ard grateful sense eutertained by the proprietor in relatiou to the generous and renewed sup port the theatre has received, since it* last passage through the " flery ordeal." The bill of fare last evening was deeply attractive, em bracing three pieces, either of which would be sufficient to draw a house. " Damon and Pythias," "The Mountain Drover," and " The Black Ranger*," presented at once a variety of attraction which could not fail to crowd the 1 house to the very ceiling with groups of spectators, from , the " gazelle eyed" maiden of " blushing fifteen," who shone out in all her dazzling lustre from the boxes, to the jolly hearted tar iu the pit, and " de boys of d* Bowery"iu all part* ol the house. " Friendship, that soothing passion of the soul," is not more beautifully illustrated, in any of the ancient or modem poets, than in " Damon and I'yihias." There it no sentiment of the heart, (as an intercourse with the world has but too often proved.) more frequently abused than the nohl* feeling of friendship ; and, there is a beau tiful moral In the plot and design of this play, which is calculated to elevate the mind. What modern Pythias could be found in these "degenerate days" to risk his ex istence in the plonitude of disinterested regard for his nearest and dearest Mend 1 The instances, we fear, arc but lew and far between Could there be found now, amongst those " Indians" who rallied round " Big Thun der" during his caieer of lawlessness, madness aud phrenzy in the anti rent region, one that would volunta rily share or relieve him fiom his exile, to alleviate his sufferings, even for soine six months 7 We tear but few of his admiring associates would be found with a pure, un sophisticated tegard, capable of voluntarily relieving him from his prisou, even for a month, by changing with him. Mr. J R. Scott a? Damon in this piece, performed with admirable ability, showing a just and accurate concep tion of the part. Hi* uoble beaiing and generous confi dence--throwing open his very bosom to his fiend in his difficulty?iu a word, his general performance was well sustainod, and drew forth frequent plaudits during ? hfl avaninir Ilnrnnnnrfo l>..? k ... ? utoe nlo? ? ? the evening. Davenport's Pythias was also a respectable piece of acting, and the caste of characters were alto gether well sustained. The " Mountain Drover" was again repeated. Blan chard and Cony with their dog, which is a great favorite with " de hoys " in the pit, were excellent in the piece. The closing sceue in which the "faithful dog" saves the life of his master and kills the Drover, drew forth re peated bursts of applauso. The Black Rangers wound up the peiformances. Castle Gabdex.?Lart night, after the usual concert by the company, a capital burlesque on the opera of the Postillion of Lonjumeau, called the Post-heel-on of Long, jaw-bone, was presented, and passed off in fine style.? This is the last week of the burlosque company, and all who have net seen them should improve this opportuni ty. To night the same bill is preseuted. Palmo's.?The Ethiopian Serenadors are in the midst of triumphs. The fashionable audiences that they nightly gather round them, are, as usual, most highly pleased with their eminently graceful and scientific manner ef giving their amusing melange of songs, glees, Ac. Ac. A funny incident took place the other night.? Among the numerous visitors that were attracted to hear them, was Ole Bull: and it so happened that he arrived just in time to hear them sing the song descriptive of the famous violin match between him and "Old Dan Tuck er." The effect may bo imagined. The whole house was convulsed with laughter, and none sho ved more delight than the great Norwegian himself. To crown it all, at the close of the performance, bouquets were show ered on the stage in profusion. The performances to night are, as usual, combining all their beautiful songs, Ac. Sec. Niblo's Garde*.?The performances of last night were snch as have rarely been equalled on the New York stage. The completeness of the costs?the excellent stage appointments, added to the admirable acting of the dramatis persona, were indoed worthy of tho applauses of the immense audience, and they were most heartily bestowed. The play was Sheridan's unrivalled comedy of the 'School for Scandal,' and those who were not lortu I nate enough to have witnessed it, may imagine how i went off', when Mrs. Mowatt, Mr. Crisp, Henry and Tho mas Placide, and Mr. Chippendale, supported the prin cipal characters. Of Mrs. Mowatt's performance of I.ady Teazle, it were vain for us to speak. Thia is the fust time, we believe, that lady has appeared in it before a New York audience, but throughout the entire piece her acting was faultless. Of Mr H. Placide's Sir Peter, we can only say it was the Sir Teter of Bheridan.? Mr. Crisp excelled in the gay and thoughtless Charles ; tind Mr. Chippendale and T Placide, gave such a repre sentation of l'np and Moses, that these generally unim portant characters were almost made the most promi nent of the piece. The piece is lepeated tins evening, and we trust that those who did not witness it last night, will not lose such a treat to-night. Ole Bull's Cover.*t.?The first Concert of the great violinist, since his return to this city, will take place this evening, at the Tabernacle. Of the great attraction we need scarcely speak; he is shortly about to leave us, and we have no doubt that if there be any who have not heard him, they will not negloct this opportunity. He is assisted by Miss Northall and Mr. Duffield, and a full and effective orchestra, under the ahle direction of U. C. Hill. A temperance dramatic company is performing tcmpe ranee plays at Detroit. Signor Blitz will give exhibitions this week at Dor Chester, Cambridge and Brighton, Mass. Dr. Valentine is at Cleveland. The Slomans are at Detroit. The Walnut street theatre, Philadelphia, under the management of E. A. Marshall, opened last night with re-decoiationa, Ac. The Aciobats are at Cincinnati. The French Opera Company, including Calve, are at the Chestnut street theatre, Philadelphia. City Intelligence. SiLt ok Ptws at Dr. Potti' Chuich.?Whatever | variety ol opinion there may be in the world in regard i to the existence of a church " without a Bishop,'' it must he evident to ail that " the stated pleaching of the gos i pel" cannot be sustained without money- therefore are pews soi l. It was advertised yesterday that the news in Dr. Potts' new church, in University Place, would be sold at public auction at 5 o'clock, P. M. About that j time there were about 160 persons assembled there, [ among whom was quite a sprinkling of ladies. The persons present were shrewd-looking merchants, who, even in things spiritual, seemed determined to get the best bargain they possibly could. The pews were all assessed, und the bidding was to be a per centage on the assessed price for the privilege of the first and after ' wards of the next choice. The terms were, as usual, cash or approved paper. The assessment of the pews ranged from -JO up to S50 dollars. The first choice was sold to George Griswold, Esq., at SO per cent, advance i on the assessed price. The selected pews were No. 91 i and 76. paying for the first $1106, und the latter $953. John Geer, Esq , bid oil' the fourth choice, at 43 per ; cent, advance, anil took pew No. 47, paying $994. Mr. Mason hid 44 per cent., and took pew s 76 and 90? ! the first costing $100H, and the last $sot John A. Stevens, Esq., bid 35 per cent., and took pew , 41. Ht $675. Tbe bidding was sprightly, and the per centage ranged from 60 down to 5. About one haif ol the pews were sold, and. judging in a worldly manner, wc should say at good prices. The church was lit up, and looked very fiue. Thia church is one of the handsomest in the city. The outside it brown lieestone, and built >n the Gothic style, i with the exception of the tower, which it a tall plain spire The interior is of the most unique construction and furnished in the most unique sty le. On both sides ol the body of the chutch aro stout pillars in inii ation of freestone, which support high Uotuic arches The |iewt are all of plain black walnut, and aie veiy neat The pulpit is also of black walnut and rests against a screen, which separates the body of the church Irom a lecture room which adjoint it. This screen, together with the pulpit, it very elaborately carved in antique style. The windows are all of burnt glass, and ornamented in the most beautiful style. There is a dark and sombre, yet still not gloomy appearance over the wholo interior,that , imparts a fueling of solemnity such at should ever be ex | penanced in a temple of the Most High. Bkooari.?The streets aie full of beggars, ol | all sorts, ages and descriptions Blind beggars in par : tirular, who, with little cards hung round then rie< ks ) with the inscription "I am blind," are found at almost ; every corner. The living which these people obtain by j this mode, must he very preoarious. and it is the duty ol the city authontiea to remove them Irom the w alk, and provide for their necessities, if something of this kind 1 is not done. h?g.;ing will soon become here as it is in London, where retiring heggari advertise their walks i for sale, a regular business, !

World's Convention. This Convention commenced its session yester day morn in, at 10 o'clock, in Clinton Hill. There were in the morning session about lour hundred present; and in the evening the hall was tilled with members, both men and women. Mr. Colli**, of the Skeneatelat Association, acted as Chairman, and Mr. Rvxcman, of Mass , Secretary pro tern A committee of seven was appointed to nominate offi cers, who reported for President of the Convention, Ro bert Owen; Vice Presidents, Albert Brisbane, Jno.

Mr. Owen delivered his address to the Convention, wiiich contained the object of the Convention. It was then requested that those who wished to be come members oi the Society should send in their names on slips of paper, when Mr. James Arlinoton Bennlt said that if the princi ple of the Convention was.that he having one dollar and bla neighbor nine, that they abould put the caah togeth er and divide, he would become a member. The following rules were then adopted : ?

Aelinoton Bennet thought that there should be power vested in the Convention to expel any man whose charaoter was found to ba bad, for such persons may propose subjects for discussion and debate upon them which would tend to the disgrace of the Society. Mr. Hat thought that any man in possession of his liberty should be received as a member. A Gentleman moved that none but respectable per sons be admitted VeicE?Define respectability, Sir. Mr Rvcema.n thinks the Convention has not power to enquire into the character of any man Men of the worst character have often had tiie greatest experience, and could enlighten us on the evils of humanity. Mr. Collins said, that as the preliminary business had been got through with, it was time for the Committee to retire and make their report. While the Committee were out, Mr. Collins addressed the Convention?He said that he was convinced of one thing, and one thing only, and that is that Society is in a very diseased state, and that nine-tenths of the crime committed in the woild is caused by the unequal distri

bution of property. If arrrangemeuts were made to give man a proper eduoation from his cradle, he believed that future generations would tell that man is possessed of an inherent nature to make himself happy and virtu ous, but we do not expect that those who now possess advantages over their brethren will be willing to torego them; but we can preach and demonstrate that certain changes will produce certain benefits. He defined his meaning of the word liber-y, by saying that if a man had a larger eye than another, he was entitled to a greater share of light, and that if ho had a bigger belly, ne was entitled to a greater share of food. The committee came in and stated that they could not get accommodations , and instead of drawing up any re port themselves, they had agreed upon rocommeuding certain resolutions which haa been previously drawn up by Mr Owen. Mr. Owen then read the resolutions, and the conven tion adjourned to this day at 9 o'clock. Mr. Owen's resolutions vers? I. That through the past history of the human race, there has been much misery produced from ignorance, disunion and crime. 3. That * here have been always substantial causes. 3. That while the causes exist, so will the effects. 4. That these causes are removable, and should bo re moved as soon as possible. 5. That the cause of ignorance is the want of a system atic education, and 6th. That the cause of disunion is an inferior educa tion opposed to human nature. 7. That the cause of poverty is extravagance in many, the want of beneficial employment of others, misapplied industry, standing armies, destruction of property by wars, want of a just circulating medium. 8. Cause of ciime is ignorance, disunion and poverty. 9. That the human race are born without their know ledge or consent, with a peculiar combination of quali ties, which comhinste his natuie. 10. That from birth each becomes the creature of cir cumstances. II. That man's natural and acquired character is form ed tor him, nnd that society,to make man happy, charita ble and intelligent, must be founded upon a knowledge of humanity. 13 That hitherto the human portion of man's charac ter has been formed under the supposition that the cha racter of each individual has been formed by himself. in That the time bus cumo when a change will he ef fected. 14 That the United States is peculiarly well situated to commence this change. 16. That it is for the interest of the United States to set the example. 16. That it is for the interest of the people of the Uni ted States to terminate the causes of wars, disunion, and opposition of interests, by forming federative socie ties 17. That these societies can be best introduced by joint stock companies with charters. 16. That this convention constitutes itself a. parent society, to promote the formation of such societies. 19. i'hat these societies be conducted on the princi ples of universal charity. New Virtue of Guano.?In looking over some South American i>apers, we came acros* wintr singu lar facts regarding Guano, which puts it in the light of a medicinal agent. The facts, are as follows;?The disease of Elephantiasis has long been the scourge of many parts of the Southern continent of America. It is a cutaneous disease, accompanied with great swelling of the legs, Jec., and altogether so loath some, that hospitals are set apart to teceive the un fortunate patients, where they live perfectly shut out from all communication with the rest of the world. One uniortunate man, who did not wish to enter these hospitals, betook himself to the Island of Chincha, where Guano is abundant, and employed himself digging it out for the vessels that loaded there. After three years residence here, he became quite cured, it is supposed, by the plenteous exhalations of oxygen that ne had lived among.? However that may be, two or three other cases have been likewise cured by this mode of treatment, and these Islands are likely soon to become the resort of all afiected this way. From Vbiozvela.?The Philadelphia U. S Ga zette publishes a letter from La Guuyra, dated, Sep tember 4, the lubitance of which is that,the Venezuelan Government seems indisposed to make any reduction ol the rates now imposed on American produce.

Be fore, however, he could reach the place, another person snatched the treasure, and wa* quietly walking on with it, when Mr. White and two other gentlemen enquired of him if the property wa* Ills? He stated that it did not bel ong to him, and that as soon as he arrived at his of fice in Wail street lie would send an advertisement to the several newspaper* for the diicovery of the loier. Upon looking over the molt widely circulated journal* yosterday morning, no announcement* could be found tii relation to the money, and the circumstance may therefore be regarded a* one of a very suspicious and mysterious character. It is to he regretted that the gen tlemen who saw the money picked up did not insist up on having the name and address of the tinder. Mr. White states that the parcel must have contained several hunJred dollars; and he took such a thorough observa tion of its fortunate discoverer that he could identify him among u thousand individuals.

A better selection could not possible have been made, and it is the more creditable to those who made the appointment,that Mr.Paterson wa* not an appli cant for tbe office,and was chosen with entire referenco to his capacity, against the strenuous exertions and active caucussing of ten or a dozen prominent politicians, who anxiously sought the office.

II he lives until November, jnst so sure will you hear hi* voice again among you, pleading the cauie of temperance. I understand the mm sellers have invented a drink which they call " Uough Cordial," but they will soon have that cordial administered to themselves to their heart's content. As an intimate friend of John B. Gough, 1 know his integ rity. I believe all of his statement; and also that he will live down the slanders of his enemies."
