NEW YORK HERALiX YorU, Pj-i'luy, 1JI. IMS. WEEKlY H-RALD. IMPORTANT NATIONAL PAPEa3, i*i. Wo shall give in the ir<fkly Heraid to he ready at 8 I'ch'ck t morrow morning, tho II9 port of the Secretin)" of tt>e .V#vy ; of the l'ontmnster Oenoral; the highly . !it i tii r; Bu l import;:nt correspondence between <'nl* houn, rakcttham and Buchanan, respecting Orrgori; tits vj111j.i< 1 o and comprehensive letter on the European 'fl'ii-, from our iatellinent Pails Correspondent; anj thn proeer lin?i .n Washington to tlm lute.t hour, 4tc Mr. Denton nml the Caucuunt \l ualiliigtoiw We understand tli ;f the course of .Mr. Benton, h revolting from th<-* out us dictation at Washing nn, relative to the election of Mr. Dickens, Secre tary of the Senate, and other ofiicers, litis given to many of the exclusive frendsof the ad ministration. Be it so. We highly approve of that f.-ur*e,and so will every right-minded, independent nan in ilie country approve the course taken by Mr Benton in this matter. One of the first acts of Mr Polk, on kts acces ion to power, was lo destroy and scatter to the win<ls the old kitchen cabinet at Washington, which ctcupied the position, and exercised the power, of t\ great central dictator to the govern ment, and settled, by caucus, at Washington, every thing connected with officers and measures, as it ii :ed. It was the greatest weakness and error in General Jackson's administration, to give en couragement aud power to that overbearing clique, ' u!!< d the Kitchen Cabinet. Mr Polk whs entitled to lhe gratitude of the country, and of all right maided men, when lie removed it, nftd dashed B! ir, llives As Co. to the ground, when they at tempted to re-organize it. For the same reason that we applauded Mr. Polk far that *c, we applaud Mr. Benton for the course he htoS taken in defeating a new Kitchen Cabinet, waich ?'ns Mt!*mpt-d to be organized under the nose of the Pre?ident by Ritchie and H<*iss. During the lust summer, there were efforts made and schemes c icocted, among the small politicians connect el with the administration, to construct a new Kitchen Cabinet, of which Ritchie and Heiss of t te Union were to t>e the centre. We were well as.urrd oi this, and while we are willingthat Ritchie and Heiss should get the printing of Congress and re:eive ihe wages oi theirUbor, freedom cl thought will most strenuously resist, and so will every right minded man, the establishment of a " power behind i1!" throne greater than the throne itself." If Mr. Polk's administration is to be supported, let it be supported in a fair, open, and honorable manner, by a great, powerful and magnanimous party, and not by the dark, designing and secret behesta of petty officials, who have charge of the pots nnd pans. la these sentiments we are persuaded Mr. Polk concurs, and alio the mass of the honest men of nil parties. If Mr. Benton continues to oppose all at tempts to reorganize a midnight influence, celled a Kitchen Cabinet, uncer the present administration, he may calculate on having tne popular support to any extent. To the great measures of the President we have no doubt the Missouri Senator will give his warm sopport. Pre-Paymknt o* Postage.?Under the present ow raies o( postage, every letter or newspaper de posited m nny post-office in this country ought to be paid tor in advance. Those wko have never thought of the subject are not aware of the vast amount of letters and papers which remain dead in tlr1 post-offices of the large cities. Bushels upon bushel* of transient papers are weekly refused at 'he office in this city. Now, the government incurs i great expense in the transportation of all this mailable matter, and ought inuli cases to be remu !?*rated, as any other carrier would be?not making the remuneration to depend upon the whim of the jv rson to whom the matter was despatched and itely brought. A great deal of money is yearly >5t in this manner, and unless the pie-payment sys tem u carried into effect, we fear that it will be necessary, for (he support of the department, that the rates of post age should be raised to their former itandaid Besides having the effect of keeping the postage down, the pre-payment system will at the same time prevent many of the impositions practised by anonymous correspondents, through the post office, the object in most cases being to tax the receiver of the worthless letter with postage. Another advan * tge of thin system would be, that it would in a ?reat measure cut off the communication between thieves and other scoundrels. At present, one of these c haracters can drop his letter into the box without bftng seen by any one ; but, under the ?ys t m we are advocating, the oifice clerk would see i he superscription, and, should "he suspect any thing : torn that, would have an opportunity to scan the fare of the person who deposited it?and thereby the Post-Office Department would be a great assi# ant in the prevention of crime and detection of criminals We hope that the present Congress will take this matter into consideration, and thereby carry out w i at we believe to be the wish of a majority of the . ;ople. Among the independent or cash currency journals, the system of pre-payment and low rates, have increased the power and circulation of the press four-fold to what it was under the old system. The. Postmaster General is right in recommending this reform in the ri-w system. Landlords?Power of Di?trai:ii!?o?As the constitution and laws of this State will shortly he re vises, nnd such alterations made in them as have .?en agitated for sometime past, we hope the atten tion of the revisers will be called to the power which 'he law, a? it now stands, gives to landlords id col lecting their rents. By a s^tute, which was carried through the legis lature through the influence of money, contracts be tween landlords and tenants have a greater prefe rence in the eye of the law than any other In a breach of such a contract by the tenant, the Inndloid h^s but to e*-ear that a certain araountof rent is due an l h- can immediately f^ze the tenant's property .aid dispose of it, to satisfy himself what is due. In ove>y other case of breach of contract, the person v.mred is obliged to pert-ue trie ordinary course of a Uwsutt?to take the ssme remedy as he would to recover the payment of a note of hand or any thing ?*!se. II this principle can be at all incorporated in -iur judicial syttem, it is unju-t to restrict it to land lords and give them a preference over others Bul why have it at all 1 Why should landlords have a more speedy way of collecting their rents than the law affords to other persons T Why should landlords or any other class be preferred at all 1 We are in favor of expurgating all partial legisla ' cn from our statute uooks. and we hope that the jtmtio;: ol the revisers will be drawn to the arbi rary method of collecting rent which the law gives o landlords. Death of Com. Elliot ?We learn that Com. Jes-e D Elliot, of the United States Navy, died in Philadelphia, of a complication of diseases, on Wedre*,day night He entered the service on Tie 2 J ot April, and was at the famous battle ' Lake Lne with Com Perrv It we- Corn Elliot t at had the figure head ot Gen, Jackson placed on irie bows of the triga'e Constitution a few years ago. it. will recollect tnat act created so much ex . citement at the time as to induce a merchant cap iain, one terribly stormy night, to cut it off, to the utter astonishment of the sentry, who would pro u.ibiy have shot the captain had not a flash of light i tnit dazzled him out ol Ins propriety First 3egar Smoker in Con3ki.s3 ?Aiet'.e; wri say that John Pe'tit, from Indians, 8rnoK/-d ths ?t sejrer, in the present Congress, under the ladus' iery Can any one tell what sort of a segar it n1 \ long nine -or n Principe ' Muob depend ThCKtricul. Bowr.nv Tihatkf?The tragedy of Jlorneo and Juliet Was performed at thin Theatre last evening and the house >l'M Illicit on the occasion to as much as it could conve niently hold. Mrs Shaw sustained tho character of Jn. liet, and Vr. Jno If. Scott that of Morcutio. We have ? > repeatedly testified to the ability of both of those per f irmer*, that all ? e can say is, they both acquitted thtrn selves with their usual excellence. Mr*.

Last evening f'altno's Opeia House was filled to its utj 'nost capacity, bj an audience, about one halt of whom wore ladies, to witness the first appearance of a compa ny of stage struck heroes, in the tragedy of "Hamlet." The house was held in breathless expecta'ion until the rising of the cuiUin, whan tho tpoit commenced. The cast was as follows H unlet D C. Moorhead. Ohost F. Lamont. Laertes R. H.Bairett. Poloniu A. R. Wyle, Rozencrantx N. Quackenboss. Ouilderstein F. Thomson. Huratio J. M Lucian. King J. M. Mortimer. M reel I ti a J. Hunter. Bernardo W. Pollard. Francisco W. B.James. Osric C. Belmont. 1st O avedigger F. W. Meighan. 2d do J. A Smith. 1st Actor M No vena. 2d do R. Williams. Opheiia Mrs. Watts. tiueer Mrs. Hautonville. Actress Miss Barrett. There was but litt la interest until the appearance of the Ohost, who certainly was the uiost ghostly ghost we ever saw. lie was dressed in very unique style. A bleuse, somothing like a shirt, covered his trunk, whiie his head was adorned with n helmet that com.det ly co vered op his face. He had a voice which sounded like the knocking of potatoes against the pot lid, when thay are crying to be let out and peeled. The charac ter of Hora io was very respectably done. In the se cond scene, upon the entrance ol Hamlet, be looked to us as though ho had been drunk at least a week. Ham let, it must be kn *wn. is an ambitious young gentleman, formerly connected with the Sun, but ol lata known as a vender of Galvanic rings, a number ol which, we think, he must have had on last night, as his read ings were highly embellished by occ -sional starts, as i though he hod received b severe shock. Whether, how- | ever, he were shocked himself we cannot say, but the : audience certainly were The man who did tho king i indulg din a very unique style ol elocution and gesti- I dilation. In the strong passages, to gather energy , he j would slowly raise his scroll and, when he arrived at thn '< point, would suddenly bend his kn^>es and, rising again as suddenlv, would let his words burst out of him His j voice, howevor, seemed to be continually ti veiling down stairs, beginning on a high note and gradually di- ! minishing till it ended iu no note at all. but the most ingular looking and acting character of the evening was Folonius. who v. us a tall gaw ky youth, whose head j was dressed in a huge sheep-xkiii wig He didn't know | anything of his part, and what he did, nobody heard a word ot. In the interview with Horatio and Murrt-llug, previous to seeing the ghost, Hamlet made most horrible work. His reading of " If it assume my noble father's person, 'Sic , was iuterlarded with powerful galvanic shocks at the end of every line. At the scene where the ghost enters and appears to Hamlet, both Horatio and Maicellus held out their hands at arm's length, shut one eye and continued all through the interview as though they were taking sight at the ghost and endeavoring to shoot him. Thus passed off th* first act and ti e first scene of 'he seci.nd, without any remarkable incident?but tho second scene of the second act was very rich. The Queon, (Mrs Hauton ville) spent several minutes in trying to beo' on on I'o lonius, who, probably intent upon studying his part, did not observe her motions. After coming on, however, and reading the letter, the Queen saj s to him, " came this from Hamlet to her !" This question was repeated three times, hut Polonitis, who seemed struck with a sud den doatness, and, as if he didn't heir the question, of course didn't answer. Then camo the King's turn to speak, but he didn't know what to say, as lie was waiting lor his cue from Polonius. The Queen didn't kno -v what to say, and so thay stood for lull three minutes staring end nodding to each other to spc k Tht audience ill the while roaring with laughter, until the actors finally lett the stage. llozeccrantz and Ouilderstein were done by two young gentlemen, the fonnerof whom must tie foubled with a bad memory, as he had hit part writ ten out in his cap, and upon being addressed would look down on his cap for a moment, learn his sentence, and then suddenly looking up again would out with it. The players consisted ol two very short men and one very short woman, who said something, but spoke so low that nobody heard them In the soliloquy, '? To be or not to be"-?Hamlet commenced by walking three times across the stage, looking up to heaven six times, putting his hand on his heait three times, and finally sinking into a chair, commenced and drawled out the soliloquy. Thii was a fair specimen ot the, acting ? The audience were kept most of the time in a roar of laughter-occasionally applauding by way of irony The sentiment which leceived the most applause and sac med most aproi>oi, was thatof llarrilet?"O, what an ass am I ; vlr. Moorhewd, at the tailing of thu ciit.nn, wan called out an 1 made a speech in which lie acknowledg ed the impei lections, and begged the consideration of the audience, which wo think they expressad in re maining through the play. Mr. Moorhead may as well give up nil hope ol ever becoming an actor. He has nei ther voice figure, or grace, although he in .ds quite well. On the whele, w? think this one of the greatest farces we ever witnessed, and would respectfully request the gentlemen who figured iu it, f>r their own sake, to stick to their own trades and callings, as they will never elec tii/y th# world with their dramatic talents. Tin Okatosio or St. 1'avl at thk Tasi??,cls, When we witnessed the profound attention with which this rhe/d'auvrt was listened to last evening, and the evident delight which the audience fait, we became con vinced that St Paul is one of those tare things?a great work understood by tht multitude That it if a great and mighty work, the fiat ol a number of y?nrs has deci ded beyond controversy-an I ,tu the more gratifying to the musician, who vividly feel* 00tB of )t tf) ind that Ihe public at large, IMdl|y ,yrnpathi.0 with hit admiration.

On the fith inst. the rest of the vocalists were to follow Signor Valtellina in a small vessel to Havana. After concluding the season of the Italian opera in that city, it is expected Madame I'ico will tome direct to New York from Ha vana, in the month of March or April, if not sooner. Thi: Borchk^i Troupe.? l etters have been received from the I3orgheso truupr, who are now iu Mexico, ol a lather flattering nature, in rrleroncc to their success. We understand that Mdlle Borghese will come on to New York, perhaps in February, or it may be later, as circumstances may occur, it is possible she may also visit Havana in her course, and unite her force with Mad. Pic*) in that case tbnrs may be the expectation ot an union of these excellent vocalists, and of their arrival to pettier in New Vork early in the spring. It is certain that Mdlle. Borghese has written on to this city, making enquiry for a theatre, as the sceue of their future opera tions. Miss Bramson is about giving concert* in Boston. Mr. Dempster gave a concert at Syracuse on the Pth instant. Tim Sloma- s gave a concert at Kahway, N. J , on Wed nesday evening.

The evil consequences attending und following the initiation of a young mun into themjs teries of gambling, can no where be *o plainly seen us in tbe gambling houses themselves, which, as moat per sons are not aware, arc entirely open in Park ('lace, Warren, Murray and Barclay streets Taking a stroll through some of tnem a few evenings since, with a friend, who was somewhat acquainted with their fre quenters,we learned the histories of several who are liv ing proof, ol the ott-repe.ited assertion that, in the long iuu, a gambler is sure to be unsuccessful In one place, wheie we went, we saw an old grey headed man, with a 1 tine, intellectual coun'enance, sitting at tbe faro table, marking, for the accommodation of tho players, the cards which were turned Irom the dealei'sbux. This is his only business?he expects to receivc from a player, when he wins, a check or two, which he bets. Ten years ago he was a rich merchant in South America. By a course of untiring industry, through Ynany toilsome ? years, he had acquired a large fortune, which would have enabled him to spend his declining years in peace and happine**. Hut, in an evil hour, he allowed the pas- ! sion for gambling, which he hud acquired in youth, to overcome bim again, and, in a low yeui s, ho had lost all his fortune at the gaming table, anil now he gets a pro carious living by hanging on at a fashionable gambling house depending for his subsistence upon tbe bounty of gamblers. Such examples should prove a lesson to : young men, and warn them to beware of the first fasci nations of gaming. Rich Mock Auction Cist.?A green Connecticut Vankee, standing six feet and four inches, without his shoes, arrived in this city, a few days since, for the pur pose of making purchases to take buck to Conneclicut, and speculate upon. He took up hi - quarters nt a re spectable boarding house in Beekman street, and started j out on Wednesday afternoon to go to Lovejoy'a, to see a calculating machine, which wnc there exposed But reaching Nassau street, he by mistake tiwied up, and ?oon foun 1 himself in Chatham street. Arriving oppo site a mock auction shop, ha heard tho cry of " la cants, going at IS cents " Ho inquired of a gentleman stand ing at the door, what was going on, end he very politely intormod him that it was a Sheriff's sale. Our Vankee entered, and saw gold watches up at only IS cents. Me felt in his pockets, but found lie had left his money at bis boarding house, and requested the auctioneer to " hold on," till he could run and get it. To this they readily agreed, am! the Yankee started off like a streak of lightning, knocking over two or three apple stands in his eagen.ess to got at his money. Whan he arrived nt his boarding house, ho pushed into the parlor, and i n tho highest stato of exaitement, cried out to several ol the boarders who were sitting there, '? For God's sake, gentlemen, if you have any money, bring it along with you !" Oiie of them not knowing wh i he meant, started off with him, and they proceeded to the shop, the Yankee all the while expiesaitig fears that the pro perty would be sold before ho could reach it, and he never should got su?h a chance again. When they nr rived, the auctioneer set the hammer a-going, and our Ynnkec began to bid. Tbe gentleman, who had ac companied him, enjoyed the joke for a time, but it wo ; yo tich that he burst into a fit of laughter and left the establishment. Tho Yankee, however, remained, and probably bid off tho goods, but has not been heard of since. Whether he was so elated with hia bargain that lie startod immediately for home, wo do not know ; but te has probably by this t me disco'-crcd, that specula tions are not to be made at a New York ' Sheriff's SbIb.'' Brooklyn Intelligence. Rih ianism, amu na CoKi(equKf(cF.i.?There can now he scarcely entertained any reasonable doubt?Bftor the disclosures which we have recently deemed it our duty to publish?that the city of Brooklyn does not contain within its precints? in proportion to its population?a greater number of desperadoes and vagabonds than can tie found ia any other place in the United .States. A ma jotity of these xcoundrels belong to tire companies, ( is volunteers,) and on any day of the week, troin morn to ntght, ntay be found at some low groggery, playing caids and dominoes, or rattling for poultry and game. The keepers of such establishments, as a matter of course, encourage these pseudo brigmds in their nefarious proceedings, and readily second any attempt which may be made to waylay, or even assassinate, nny^oue con nected with the public press, who has sufficient fearless ness, independence and spirit, to expose their idleness and villainy. Asa small item in the extensive catalogue which might be furnished in telation to tbe daily preda tory acts of these lawless and unrestrained icoundiels, we give the following : ?Last evening, two of the very few watchmen employed to guard the persons and pro perty ol those who reside iu this city, were violently as ?tailed in Tillary street, by a parcel of rowdies who ema nated from n low rum-shop in Tillary street. One of ? hem. Mr Barnard Mc Donald, had his aim broken du ring the melee which occurred, and his companion was also seriously injuied. The maimed and diaabled men were placed under the treatment and care of Dr. How ard, of Bridge street, who dressed their wounds, and ap plied the proper revtorativei Only one of the perpetra tors ol this outrage ?a m.ui named Phillip Filzpatrick ? was taken into custody, but there is every reason to be lieve that some ot his associates will very speedily be brought to justice. M*. Tr.MHLr.TOv.?This gentleman's concert, at Ootliic Hall, was last evening attended by more tha i six hun died of the most respectable and fashionable residents of Brooklyn. In several of his songs, h>i v-as enthusiasts ' cally encored; und the whole entertainment "went oil" with decided eclat and applau*e. frMFKRAHcie Mtcxiwo.?At the First Baptist Church I in Brooklyn, a very large meeting took place last night, for the purpose ot organizing * Juvenile Temperance Association, under the especi il auspices of Oeorge Hall, Esq , aided by the Rev C J.

At the very low est calculation, there were upward* of a thousand per sons present; and the exercises wart of a really inte resting and pleasing chatacter The choir was almost exclusively composed of children from the public schools, under the direction ol Mr. Webster, and nearly two hundred of them united their vol.'.es so as to produce the most delightful harmony; independent of the interest ing natuie ot the subjects upon which they thus "di , rinely and eloquently" discoursed. Doo Fiohti<?o ?Brooklyn las the very questionable honor of numbering amongst its citizens mor professed dog tighten, and blackguards connected with them, than any other city on this continent. A few evenings ago, some of these amiable i dividual*, (for wagers anion til ing to a considerable sum,) got up a canine contest, the finale of which, was the actual tearing to pieces of one of the poor r easts, and extremely severe punishment to the other This is not all Tlie owner ol the losing dng is represented to have lost, by bet? which ke made, every cent ot money which he possessed, beside* every article ol his household chatties and effects Another individual?a man of large lamily, and] engaged in re spectable business?lost upwards ol live hun lred dollars, by speculating on the result of the brutal and revolting exhibition.

Gouldlng states, that ' Either received the attention* of n young wan by the i name of Daniel W.

Now, this is all very well, for a fashionable man like Mr. Talcott, when at the same time, and previ ously, he was living in a state cf adultery with Either, at tiie corner of Sullivan and Grand streets, under the assumed name of Mr. and Mr?.

Extra Officiitutnen of Ike Police.-On Wednesday evening last, about seven o'clock, three persons connect ed with the Herald establishment were in conversation in the lower office, when a person came in and stood for several minutes, listening to what was said. One of the person* observed to the iutruder, that it was not gentle manly conduct to listen to the piivate conversation of others' He replied, " it is a <1?d lie?I was not lis tening." He was then asked if he had any buaineos with the office. Ho laid not. He wa* then requested to leave, which he refused to do, and said it was a public office, that be had as much right there as any one else, aud he should remain as long as he liked. The clerk, who had the charge of the office, took up tho poker and threateu- I od to uae it, but the other persons belonging to the eatah. ! liahmeut interfered, and recommended that a police offl ; car be sent for and the fellow given into custody. Ono ! of the party was about to depart for this purpose, when the intruder asid ?"You need no^go for an officer?I am one," and drew his rlub, which he fl mmhed to a con- j siderablo extent, and made a blow with it at one of the party; but this was warded ofl'by another, who caught : the blow slightly on the hand, but in the struggle seve- \ rul panes ol ((lass were broken His name w?a then de- | mar.ded, but he refused to give it, and abused the whole i party in no measured terms, at the aamu time knocking ! one ol the reporters flat on his back with a blow of his ! fist. The alderman of the ward (Stoneall) was then sent | for, but ho was not at homo. Oilier assistance having ar rived, the intruding officor was taken into custody and : marched off to the station house in Oold street. On the : way thither, some ofthe prisoner's lellow M. Ps ;itrest ed an unoffending tailor as being one ol the party crea ting the disturbance, but who knew nothing ot the af fair at all At the station house, an attempt was made to turn the tables on the assailed party, but their witnesses ! were too numerous and respectable for this purpose, i and, much to the surprise of all. the case was dismissed. ; The witnesses were assailed with the most violent abuse ; from several of the officers ia attendance; one in particu- | lar, whose name is known, and shall be so used with his j superiors as to prevent him evjr "spotting" any of the Herald establishment in his official capacity. It was with some ditHculty that the name of the assailant in the tit at instance was procured at the station house, which v/as understood to be Callaghan. The whole affair is laid before Justice Matsell, who doubtless will see jus tic.o?not police justice?done to all parties.

The parties composing this house, it would seem, have been in the habit, for some time past, of taking what is termed double advances on those staple articles, which is considered fraudulent und illegal under tho law, and, inconsequence, they have been arrested, and are now undergoing private examination. The proceed ings in the case have been kept as secret as the star t chamber system pursued in the police office will admit . of, and, we believo. it is contemplated to keep the public unacquainted with the particulars of the transaction as much as possible.
