NEW YORK HERALD. *< w I oi k, JMoutlay, ^nvsiubcr 17, 18*5. Occnii Steamer*. The Britannia is due to-day at Boston. She brings fifteen days later intelligence, which is anx iously looked for. The Caledonia sailed yesterday from Huston, with twenty-five or thirty passengers for Halifax and Liverpool. The Massachusetts is making a very long pas sage, it she sailed on the litth ulr. Owing to the gale on that day, it is expected that she did not leave. No one on this side ot the Atlantic can tell when she did sail. We shall know, however, when the Britannia arrives, it the M. does not make her appearance in the mean time. The Great Western and Great Britain are to be altered and improved for uext'year's business. They will not, therefore, cross the ocean again this season. President's Message. Our intelligence from Washington relative to the reparations of the Executive and the Departments is beginning to be very interesting at the presen'. time. Tins day fortnight Congress opens the first session since the election of Mr. Polk, and as soon as both Houses will be organized the President wil' send Ins message to them. What this message is to be-what complexion it may assume-what prin ciples he will adopt, are the great topics of inquiry remark and discussion, both in the newspaper press and in the private and political circles and coteries. From the information which we have received from a quarter that cannot be mistaken, we huva every reason to believe, notwithstanding some back log and filling that appears in the government organ in relation to Oregon, that the President will take 'he broadest ground on that question, and a view of our relations with England, uflecting this dispute, which will lav the foun tafion of new movements ereufter of die utmost mqamance to this country and to our foreign relations. There can be no doubt that he will claim the whole of diat territory from 42'' to W 40', but it is probable that he will leave all further movements, beyond the mere assertion of the claim to the wisdom of Congress, to whom the whole subject will be referred Accompanying the message on this subject, there will be a number of valuable reports from :he State Department, and we understand that Mr Buchanan and his clerks are now very much engaged in making preparations this matter. 1 here was a very important corres pondence on the Oregon question, which took place between Mr Calhoun and Mr. Pakenham, about a year ago. In that correspondence Mr. Calhoua made the same clami which Mr. Polk does. , fur,her refused to consent to any mode ot settlement, or arbitration, similar to tha, which marked the adjustment of the North Eastern Boundary, as negotiated by Mr. Webster and Lord Ashburton. It is doubtful, however, whether this corres,a.nrience and the protocols wl?ch passed be tween the two ministers, on that occasion, will be ?nt with the President's Message to Congress We have the best reasons for believing that Mr Calhoun s policy on the Oregon question,in that cor respondent, is not what it l,as been represented by" some of the newspapers recently,in isolated extracts aken from his previous speeches. Mr Calhoun ne gatived the proposition of umpire, or arbitration, on the subject of Oregon, in consequence of his convic ion that the inherent right to the whole of that ter ritory was vested in the United States. He would not negotiate because he could not negottate away a pal pable right He was willing, however, to leave the matter to time lor a final settlement, and to take the chance ol events and contingencies. It is doubtful therefore whether Mr. Buchanan, in his report ,0' the'President, on which that portion of the Message * .11 be founded, will give a full history of those ne! gonations with which Mr. Calhoun was connected U e learn, however, that Mr. Buchanan is very busy preparing on the Oregon question?on Texas? San Domingo, and also on the queshon even of Para guay. ,a Another subject, and a curious one, will be em braced in the Message, growing out of the mission of Mr Hogan to ban Domingo, and also an informal mission to Buenos Ayres, relative to Paraguay - The rej>ort made to the Department recently by Mr Hogan, when he returned from his mission to San I 'omingo, is most interesting on the subject of black government, and the relative capacity of blacks for self-government. Mr. Hogan's report is a document of considerable length. He goes into a whole h.sto ry of ban Domingo from the period of its first settle ment up to the present day, during all its changes of government, and is particularly full relative to the revolution which took place simultaneously with the old revolution in France. This report is also ac compan.ed by a variety of documents, some from the Catholic Bishop of the island, and a statement from a arge body of Methodists residing there, upon the domestic und religious concerns of the place All these documents and paj-ers tend to show the utter incapacity of the black government of Haytt to wield power, and the probability that the Spanish or white, portion ol the population of the island' will soon extend their dominion over the whole of thaiIbeaati ul country. The mission was designed n , T'10 ,l,n,iSh 3 rep|y 10 the '"anat.cism and folly of the governments of Europe, in relation to the character and capacity of the negro races. Imt shape a I this will take, coming through the hands ol Mr Buchanan and his chief clerk, we do not know ; but we rather think that they will be -uorn of the strong features which they would have presented, in all their force, had Mr. Calhoun re mained m the State Department. Another subject will be the tanti. This portion of Mr wT W'" rUin 8 Hynop*,H of the views of Mr Walker, ,n his voluminous documents ac companying the same, which also correspond w.ih the opinions of Mr. Polk himself. A revenue 1 iff,extending equal protection to all the interests and sections of the country, will be recommended and enforced by a variety of statements, facts and Mr Walker It is very doubtful, however, whether tli* recommesdations of the Message wiJJ 8atisfv the ultra politicians of a.u,h Crohnf, wh?,"d' Vrm.ned to find fault, at all events General, lor we have seen too much of his*"' ' rnwness of intellect, amounting almost to ah T' to expect much from him But we trust ?? ritof light and liberality,,,,, the part of tSl Pr^' dent. wilUvercome all such attetn,,.. On the whole, our information relative to the ?re ^rauons making for the Message, indicates th^'t * ill be a document memorable ,n the history ot the xr;1;b',iw ?< To^o: ""d """ ??'1 -"'??-awSET.Tr'- over. can he no doubt but th ' "i ,"f9tlons- 1 here ,,1,0, ?? ?d'v^ ".ion. in the Message.

North sud S,,?b b,ve b,,.,I e , "11 lo public moasurasj bin the prosp-cl no? is that the Oregon question, u'ged on by the united 1 western democracy of the Mississippi valley, will create a separation between the tjouth and the West, and hereafter throw the South and the Fast into the same movement und the same views of policy. We certainly are on the eve of great and singular political events, both foreign and domestic. Trouble in the Whig Party?The trouble in the whig party which commenced in this city be tween the Tribune and the Courier and Enquirer appears to be widening and gathering, reaching the central power of the State. Thurlow Weed, the re nowned "State barber," and editor of the Albany Evening Journal, which is the organ of the central whig junta, comes down upon the Courier and En quirer with a column and rh half ot very quiet and very gentlemanly denunciation for its various sins in opinion and action during the last two years. The central whig organ takes sides entirely with the Tribune, saying nothing, however, ofits Fourierism and other absurdities, which are probably tolerated for the sake of its occasional gleams of common sens*". 1 he Courier and Enquirer with all its caravan o 1 animals?with two Colonels, its three Majors, its four corporals, and we know not how many other military reputative, is denounced for defeating the whig party in 1844, by its leaning towards native isin It is denounced also for wishing to deprive ihe negroes in the approaching State Convention of a right to vote, the same as any white person. It is denounced likewise for being narrow and restricted in its notions, and is especially denounced for hav ing taken into its bowels the remains of the recent Neiv Yrnk American, thereby creating the belief and commencing the movement which will lead to u similar conclusion and termination which charac terized the eventful life of that paper. There is cer tainly some colour for these denunciations and vati cinations. The Courier and Enquirer is not the liberal, progressive, onward journal it once was. It seems to be a re-hash on a broader dish ot all the particular cookery and conceit, which characterized the late Arte 1 ark American. In fnct, it has degenerated into a mere stock-jobbing organ of a stock-jobbing clique, and may be said to have no connection with any party, either whig or democrat; but merely expresses the fantastic, narrow, illiberal, and drivelling notions of a little coterie in Wall street. It has no influence with its own party, either in this city or throughout the country, and does not even aspire to be a popular journal like the independent press In short, the fate and destiny of the Courier can not be mistaken. Thurlow Weed is dressing and shaving, and fixing it so that it may die decently. Slashing Criticism?Vermin in a Paroxysm ? Avery singular movement has just been made by 'woof the small penny papers in Boston, the Bee and the Mail, to crush the Keans, Templeton, Au gusta, and heaven knows how many more of our lirst-rate artists Pelby Hamilton of the- National Theatre come out in the Bee, with a letter abusing, with the most amusing ferocity, the Keans, Mr. Hackert, and Madame Augusta: and the Mail has quite a WHspish attack on Templeton. The whole assault is laughable in the extreme. The writer seems absolutely frantic with rage, and cuts up the most fantastic capers, lor all the world, like an ill natured school-boy, suffering under the birch of his master. Pelby abuses the Keans because they would not accept ot his terms ! Funny, indeed !? As it an artist had not a right to claim as much as he thinks his sen-ices are worth, and to refuse terms which he regards as below his value. Maerendy was, it seems, in the same scrape at this establishment. Well, this is rather modest in Messrs. I'elby & Hamilton. Actors and artists who do n.ot choose to accept the terms they may think proper to otfer, are to be blackguarded in the news papers as avaricious and what not! The attack on Templeton is ludicrous in the extreme?evidently emanating from some miserable creature who fan cies himself an injured and neglected musical genius, and is gnawed with envy at the extraordi nary success of the great vocalist. These rabid assaults remind us of the attacks which have been made by some of the lowest Lon don papers on American actors and artistes ; and even on some of their own best native performers. The Mexican Indemnities.?The mystery which recently involved the discussion relative to the pay ment of the two Mexican instalments, is again re vived in the newspapers, and seems to be in as much doubt and confusion as ever. A few days ago, the Wathm^Um Union contradicted, in a certain way, the assertion that these instalments had been paid On the other hand, we have received, and published yesterday, copies of the original receipt in Spanish, with an English translation, given by the agent of the United States government in Vera Cruz for the payment of those very indemnities. It seems that Mr. Emilio \ oss, was the authorised agent appointed in a proper way to receive this mo ney, and dial in the recent despatches received by the State Department from Mexico, authenticated copies o the receipt given by him to the Mexican government, were.enclosed. Such, therefore, being the state of the facts, we do not see how it can be denied on the part of our government that the money was paid. But the question still comes up, what has become of the money ? into whose pocket has it gone-? Cannot the mystery be revealed? We trust that something wiil be done immediately on this subject, for the poor claimants are suffering very much from the delay that has already taken place. Probably the President intends to give a lull exposition of the matter in his message. Prospects of Trade ?The prospects of trade and commerce, during the ensuing year, if not for a longer period, are very interesting and very curious. It will be a continual struggle between the natural f elements of prosperity, during a time of peace, and ..n impending breach of our jieaceable relations with England growing out of the Oregon question. his continual agitation of conflicting elements will beget little ionics every n?w and then-cornering in stocks?rising and falling of values, and a degree of excitement in the public mind that may, eventu ally, should the Oregon question be settled, end in an appreciation of every thing, and a general infla tion similar to that which took place between 1830 and J837, when the inflationcarne to a head, and the volcano, at length, burst forth. Case of Polly jurors have been sworn in, and it is probable this trial will commence in the course of the week The Common CotiNciL.-The Boards will meet this evening.

A piece ot projierty in the second ward, valued at $-27,000, was assessed $231 70 in 1844, and the same property is valued the same, and is assessed this year at $211 75, being an increase of four per cent in the amouut of tax. Now, as the gToss amount of taxes levied on the suffering people of this city, was nearly two millions last year, the increase this year will be $80,000. The extraordinary increase of taxes levied during the tune the natives were in power, was equal to about eight per cent, or $200,000 in all. The present corporation came into power under the promise ot retrenchment, and they fulfil their promise by in creasing the taxes at the rate of four per cent over last year, and nearly $100,000 in the aggregate. This treachery on the part ot political parties, is creating a widespread feeling of dissatisfaction among the tax payers, who form the bone and sinew ot the city, and we find that a movement is contem plated by these tax payers, and the following circu lar is an index to something serious being on foot;? New Yore, November 7,1844. Sir The tax recently auessed is payable on the 14th day o February, 1840 Any citizen desirous ot paying his tax before the first day "f January, on paying the amount to the Receiver at his office in the basement of tho public building in tlio rear of the City Hall on Chambein street, it entitled to a deduction therefrom at the rate of seven per cent per annum, to be reckoned up to the first day of February. No deduction upou taxes paid between the first day of January and the 14th day of February A penalty of one per cent attaches to nil unpaid tax -s on the 14th day of February, and a further penalty of one per cent, making two per cent on all taxes remain ing unpaid on the 15th of March. On the first day ol April, all unpaid taxes are chargeable with interest at the rate of one per cent per month, to be reckoned from the month of October, which will amount to nearly six per cent. On and aftw the lfith of April, the Receiver is au thorized to issue distress warrants against delinquents. There are no ward collectors, every tax payer is his own collector. The taxes may be paid to the Receiver at any timo between the hours of 9 and 3 at his office, after this day. This information is given you by the Anti-Assessment Committee for your own convenience and benefit. SAMUEL BODLE, Clerk of the Anti-Assessment Committee. (CiaeoLAK.) New York, November 7,184ft. Sir A meeting of citizens who are large tax payers, will be convened on some evening in the month of Novem ber, to discuss the questions involving taxes and assess ments, with a view lo a more equal and equitable appor lionment of taxes and a "?.? amenta; also in reference to he re-organization of the city government, providing or a longer term of Mike of Assessors of Taxes, of Mayor, and Aldermen, and for a clear restriction of lowers, and for defining iho?e more clearly to guard igainst abuses, and providing lor a Board of Commis uonera. All the large tax payers who are known to be in favor )f such measures of the diiforent political parties, with out regard to any party distinction, will be invited. You will be notified of the day, hour and place of the meeting. SAMUEL BODLE, Clerk of the Anti-Assessment Committee. It seems from this circular that a meeting is called of all the tax-paying citizens, under the authority of the anti-assessment committee, of which Mr. Samuel Bodle is clerk, the day to be named hereafter. We trust the subject will be followed up, and that fneetings will be held in every ward of the city, and :hat all party distinctions will be set aside at this attempt to come to some proper means of getting reform in our city government, and a reduction in the vast expenses of the city finances, and that some action will be proposed to carry out these measures at the next election. It is time for those who suffer from the waste and extravagance of the Common Council, to look into the matter and unite iii procuring a reform. Highly Important from Albany?Reprieve of the Anti-Rent Convicts.?We have re ceived the following communication from our Albany correspondent, by which it will be seen that a cabinet council has been held, and the sentence of O'Connor and Van Steenburgh probably commuted to imprisonment for life :? Aubamt, Saturday, Nov. IS. Dear Sir?A cabinet council ban just been held to take iuto consideration the case of O'Connor and Van Steenburgh, the two Anti-renters under sentence of death in Delaware county. Tha Barnburners voting tor the execution, while the Hunkers voted to commute their sentence to imprisonment for life. The latter be ing in the majority, the lives of these two men will be snared and the Governor immediately issue his order to the Sheriff' of Delaware to that effect. The decision is almost univei sally approved." This is just what we anticipated, and what we prophesied long ago. The Anti-renters have grown strong and now possess considerable political pow er. By a union with the whigs several Anti-renters have been returned to the legislature of this State. A union with the democratic party would undoubt ly render them still more successful. In fact the Anti-rent movement has but begun, and its leaders hold themselves in readiness to join any chqu* or party that will promote their interests by striving to abolish the tenures under which their lands are held. We should not be surprised if this end was achieved and the Van Rensselaers and other landed proprietors stripped of their estates. As for this reprieve or pardon, it originated in the fertile brain of a few benevolent enthusiasts* who are utterly opposed to all capital punishment* Trading politicians then came to their aid, and a large amount of political capital will probably grow out of the movement. We suppose Gov. Wright will isrue his proclama tion and givt the reasons which actuated him in the course he has seen fit to pursue?and while he is about it wc hope he will give us the whole history of the pardons, down to Dingler's, (the last given,) which have been granted in thts State, not torget tingthatof a contemporary of ours who escaped the State's prison by the aid of one of those magic documents.

On the first quarter the black kept the lead, and over the back stretch, clearing the second and third hurdles beautiful ly. The sorrel (Duffer) gained on the last quarter and took the lead, but at tho fourth hurdle he bolted and nearly threw his rider. The black took the fourth and fifth in great style, winning the first heat in 2:32. In the second heat, the first hurdle was well taken by both, and they ran side by side, clearing the second and third so close together that a blanket would seemingly hare covered them. The sorrel, ahead, bolted again at the fourth hurdle, black winning the heat in 2:24. The three first hurdles of the third heat were taken neck and neck?this time the sorrel, having a good lead, leaped the fourth hurdle. Then came tho interest: black liiidly gained on sorrel, but the latter won the heat by alf a nt half a neck, in 2:23.

Sr. Petkrs" Church.?Dr. Pise delivered an elo quent discourse at thin church yesterday, before a crowded congregation. The rnild precepts of the gospel were dwelt upon in the true spirit of Christian charity, with an impressive solemnity, characteris tic of the philanthropic mind of this gifted preacher. He took his text from the 13th chapter of Matthew ?verses 31, 82, 33, 31 and 35. The Rev. Gentleman in his remarks, dwelt on the rarable contained in the gospel of the day,being the para le in relation to the grain of mustard seed, which was likened to the Kingdom of Ged. The instrumentality through which the gospel was promulgated, the humble position ol those who were selected by the Saviour to propagate bis gospel umongst the Pagans and the Jews, furnished a nufRcient proof, that its early foundation amongst the I agans and tho Jews, was the result of su- I pernatural agency. The gospel declared that the King dom ol Heaven is like a grain of mustard seed, Which a man took and sowod in bis lield: which, indeed, is the least ol all seeds; but when it is grown up, it is greater than any herb, and becometh a tree "so that the birds of the airccme and dwell in the branch es thereof." After dwelling on the difficulties the gos gel had to encounter oiiginally in Judea, from which it gradually spread until, like the tree in the gospel It reached and overshadowed the whole universe over spreading its branches, upon which, like the fowl's of the air, the whole generation of mankind had taken refuge I thureou. Such was the Word, which, like the tree in the gospel had overspread, through Judea, Pagan Home and nearly the whole Universe, who were henceforth to worship the Son of God. Many trees had not sprung from this simple grain ol mustard seed, nor were there many birds to take refuge upon their branches. There could be but one tree springing from one grain-one pa rent stem?and so with the Gospel of the Lord. The Hebrews had to unlearn all they had before learned and to adopt n uew form of worship?a new code of morals They hail to believe in the Trinity of the Godhead as well as in the divinity ol Christ, in order to b .come Christians. They had to believe iu the Holy Ghost, oud the doctrine of tuture rewards and punishments. They had to believe in the immortality of the soul, and the Church of Christ soon became substituted in place of the Synagogue, and succeeded the temples of idolatry The gospel was then promulgated through Pagan Home ? The Jew Pagan was taught to believe in the then doc trine of retaliation, but tne Jew Christian was obliged to give it up, and to follow the commands of the Church? enemies." says Christ, " do good to those that hate you, bless those that curse you, and pray for L.ose who calumniate and persecute you." He was taught that " he who humbled himself would be exalt ed.' He was taught that to obtain his salvation he was to have the simplicity of the dove, rater and Paul the Apostles, and St. John who had been selected bv Christ to propagate his gospel, were all men of sim ple minds audhumble in themselves, and unless the Sa viour wanted to prove that it required a supernatural agency to promulgate his law, lie would have se lected the powerful, the rich, or the eloquent, who would have the advantages of using their power, riches and persuasive arguments to favor the religion of God ; but he went to the lowly and the humble, who inspired by the Lord, propagated the gospel, flinging defiance at the Lmperors and Kings of Pagan Home in a vivid eloquence, which proved the divine inspiration under which thoy had acted, until they eventuully be came martyrs in the cause of the Lord, and sealed the gospel with their blood. The gospel then spread .f0.' Greece. Asia. Amongst the other dimcultiei that surrouuded the Church, the prejudice of birthi was also to be encountered ; and there were to be f?rc JJfr?0"8 ^ 8ti11, retain their prejudices, because iorsooth they happened to be born in them. The Ho mans and the Greeks subsequently abandoned their P?01108*' ??>d stripped their heathenish re ? ,ho. KorKeous pageantry that surrounded them-their Jupiters and their idols.

It was beautifully and unpretending ly delivered, and attentively observed. "?""g The Rer. Dr. Tvnc. preached an eloquent lermon lait night at St. Thomas' Church. His text may be lound in the 19th chapter Revelations, 13th verso. Tho Rer. gentleman pioceeded to apeak of the high miaaion of the Saviour?hia forbearaqce.long auffering, and glorioua triumph a over ain and death?hia aacrifice on the crosa, and the redemption of aiunera. He earneatly called on hia hearera to repent and attend to the dutiea of religion ?to aupport in a spirit of kindneaa, liberality,*and love; tho cause of missions - that the blessings of the religion of Jeaus might be extended to all: more particularly he asked their aid in support of tlie German Episcopal Church of St. Simon, in this city, which was established in order that the Germans might have the gospel preach ed to them in their own tongue. A collection was taken up for this purpose. The church at the corner of Laight and Varick streets was filled last evening with a large number ol the Bap tist persuasion, who attended for tho purpose of hearing the ltev. E. L. Abbott, who had been for many years a missionary in India, discourse on the subject ot missions in that part of the world. After speaking ot some length on the subject of missions, Mr. Abbott snid there are at present, in the Karen country, 'id churches, 'J re gularly ordained ministers, 3,00U < burch members who , have been baptized, and about .'t.IMM) more who attend worship, with two regularly ordained pastors, and 33 I native assistants. Those natives who have been con verted, appear every Babbath at church, neat, clean, and orderly, and the contrast between the unconverted and the couverted is very striking in their mode of living and in their general demeanor, to 1837, Mr. Ab bott stopped at the house of a Karen, whom he found to be at first wild and unapproachable. Aftar some time I, and he wai converted, aiul his house was frequented by many of the natives who had come to him to hear of the new religion, manv ot whom he had succeeded in drawing into the fold of tho good shepherd. Mr. Abbott said that tho opinion that is prevalent, that it is unsafe lor a missionary to live in Birma, is erroneous. It is per fectly aafe, except in time of war, when every man that wears a hat is arrested; that ia the ruie. Every roligion is tolerated there, but no proselyting is allowed; so that 1 missionaries, although they are allowed to live there, I cannot be of service. In time of war they would be sub ject to the caprices of the despotic government, and might he arrested, hanged, beheaded, or have their flesh cut, salt putin the gashes, and than be roasted alive?a punishment frequently inflicted there in time of war A missionary would not be allowed to have even a Karen about him as a servant, or in any other capaoity. Mr. Ab bott then ralatad the wonderful convereilona which fol lowed from a young man, a pedlar, taking a tract and reading it in tho several places where he travelled to sell ?us goods. Ila first read the tract in hi* own village, and the neighbora, ami partksulaly the old men, who had heard from their ancestors that a white man would come with a white book to teach them concerning God. would i ironiiint the home of thii podlor and haar him road thin white book. A great many of these embraced religion and have continued to worship since This young man, the pedlar, went to sereral villages, at each of which ho would read hia tract nad tell the people of tho new rell gion, one of whom undertook a journey to Hirmanto he tnatnicted In the new religion * as instructed, embraced * iros * the gospel, and afterwards became a preacher. Within ?bout two days'Journey of Madras, (that is the way they calculate distances In that country,) there waa a church established about three year* ago,which now has one hun dred and seventy menibera, a school with eighty children, which was all atlocted by the missionaries. Tha Rev. gentleman then related the manner in which a colony, consisting of 1J/I families, had emigrated from boyond the Aragon Mountains to tho Bea t oast, whare they uni ted with a colony of twenty-flva Camillas, and founded a Christian community ofupwardt of one thon.?nd ?oul.
