NEW YORK HERALD New York, Tuc? lay, February '-<4, Aiewapnper Arrangement*. We are preparing, gradually, to complete several improvements in the newspaper urrungements ol this establishment. Tive.e arrangement* will em brace, particularly, the introduction oi a new sys tem for reporting the proceedings ol Congress, as well as a plan oi general correspondence from the neighboring large cities, comprehending Boston, Albany, Bailad Iphiu, Buffalo, Baltimore, Washing ton, nil oi which may be considered?under the oi>e ratiou ol the telegraph?the suburbs ot New York, the greit metropolis and centre ol thought andac ion of the Union. A great revolution has beenetlected in the news paper press of this city, and the neighboring cities, ?hiring the last ten years. We are on the verge of a alill greater revolution, to be caused, principally, by the introduction of the magnetic telegnph, us a mode of interchanging intelligence. What eliect this change may have on the newspaper press, it is hard, as yet, to suy. This wonderful telegraphic intercourse, connecting Washington, Boeton, Bulla Io, and all the intermediate cities, with New York as the centre, is now rapidly utider way, and will pro bably be accomplished within a week or two. Our final arrangements will not be made until we see the operation ot this wonderful agent of intelli gence, aiter it shall have gone into ellect. .Some new changes will be, undoubtedly, pro duced by its influences ; and some new plans will liavetobe adopted, in order to apply its powerful agency to the aid of the newspaper press. Private etioris must give way to its great general power avid efficiency, as a medium of conveying intelli gence. With regard to the reports in Congress, we can, in the event of the proceedings before either House becoming of sufficient importance to justify it, creute a body of reporters, in the course of a single day, and thus, during the session, have them fully and accurately reported at once. We have, connected with this establishment, a force comprehending nineteen, forming our corps of re porters, ten of which are located in this city, the rest in Washington and elsewhere ; and we could, upon any occasion that might demand it, send on to Washington a detachment or eight or^ten reparters, as circumstances may re quire. It rnuy be necessary, when the tarifl ques tton comes before Congress, as well as when other important debates approach, to do this; and as soon as the magnetic telegraph shall have been com pleted between this city and Washington, which will bo the case in a short time, and we ascertain the result of that invention in connection with the newspaper press, we shall organize our establish ment anew, and particularly arrange 11 new system forgiving the reports of the proceedings in Con gress, iii a novel, graphic, and readable lorm. Apropos of Washington reporting?it was stated in our columns, n few days ago, that the Union em ployed two persons in each house, to report the pro. ceedings of both bodies. We have been request ed by Ritchie nnd Heiss to correct this statement, which, they say, is inaccurate, and to state that they employ three in each house for that purpose. Not having any wish to make any misstatement, even in this small matter, relative to that or any other journal, we take pleasure in making the cor rection on their authority. The Tariff* of the United States nnd Great II rl lain ? Reciprocity. The most important item in the commercial news from England, received by the last steamer, was that in relation to the contemplated changes in the taritflaws of Great Britain. The modifications pro posed by Sir Robert Peel, particularly refer to the staple agricultural productions of this country; and if the people of the Western States have heretofore hesitated in giving their aid 111 reducing the tariff of this country, this last movement of the British Go vernment is peculiarly calculated to soften down any prejudice that may hitherto have existed, and induce the representatives front that section of the country to give their heany support to any measure calculated to connect the commercial relations ol the two governments more closely thun ever helore realized. If there existed any doubt in the mind of the Secretary of the Treasury, as to the success of the bill presented to the Committee of Ways aad j Means, or one similar to that, in the important fea ture, it must have been removed on the receipt of the recent intelligence lrom England; and if any opponent of n reduction tn our tariff had hopes that no alteration would be made in the tariflact of 1812, those hopes must have disappeared the moment the commercial accounts from England cume to hand. The commercial systems of the two countries are destined to experience great and important altera tions. A more liberal policy lias been adopted by the governments of both countries, and when per fected, the commercial prosperity of both must be very much increased. We do not intend to go into the details of the new tariff acts of either country. It is the general principle we look at, and the effect we anticipate upon the intersts of each country. The various reductions made in the tariff of Great Britain since the present ministry came into power, have invariably met the most sanguine ex pectations of the party proposing them jand even many ol those opposing the measures in their incipient Ptagen, have since acknowledged the benefits of the change, and become powerful advocates of a fur ther extension of the same policy. The rapid in crease in the strength of the corn law league, io both Houses of Parliament, and the immense benefits which have been realized from the previous modili" cations of the tariff, have given the present Premier a majority large enough to carry through any alter ation he may propose. The majority the Ministry have in both houses, and the confidence that majority have in any measure the Prime Minister may bring forward, guaranties its adoption nt once. The al terations in the tariff proposed by Sir Hubert Peel, can therefore be considered adopted. They are not subject to any contingencies. It may be looked upon as settled. It now remains for this govern ment to go to work, and do by the government of Great Britain, as that government has done by this, ileciprocity is the proper principle, as it en ables us to carry out the maxim, " do unto otiiers as we would have others do unto us." This will ap ply to governments, as well as to individuals. The doctrine of free trade is no linger one of mere theory?it has been practically demonstrated by the government of Great Britain, within the past five years; and under its operation, the prosperity of every domestic interest has increased and become more solidly established. We can never carry into operation such a liberal commercial policy as Great Britain. Our tarill must be continued at a revenue standard. The bulk of the revenue for the support of the general govern ment, is derived from duties upon foreign imports, and to that source we must ever look tor supplies. We could not establish an income tax, or any direct tax, for the support of government; and all we can do, therefore, under the cirumstances, is to remove all unnecessary restrictions from our tarifl laws, and levy a duty upon imports merely for revenue. This is all any foreign government can expect, and it is as fur as we can go. The tariff act now under consideration bef ore the Committee of Ways and Means, is decidedly upon the Tevenue standard, as near as such a standard can he anticipated It will rather go below that |>oint than exceed it; and we think it possible that altera tions, and we fear additions, may be required in the rate of duty upon many items, to bring it up to the proper level. The ad ralorttn principle, applied to all articles, is an experiment, nnd its operation is a matter of much uncertainly. A resolution of inquiry into the expediency of reciprocating the liberal feeling of Great Britain, in the modification of the tariff, by modifying the canal tolls on articles admitted into British ports, duty free,lias been introduced into the Legislature of ! this State, and it is possible proper action will be taken in the premises at an early day. The toll on Indian corn on our canals, is so high, notwithstand ing the recent reduction, that it will, without doubt, seriously interfere with the exportation of that arti cle, particularly that produced in theWeetern Stares, bordering on the great lakes. A very great reduc tion on the toll on corn might be made, without in juring the revenue of the State lrom her public ' works, but, on the contrary, increase it. The toll on a bushel of corn from Buffalo to Albany, on tfie Erie canal, nt the present rate, amounts to six ' cents per bushel, or about one fifth part of the first j cost at Buffalo ; this is a large per cent on the value, ! and must seriously check its shipment. The rate could be reduced at least one half, which would give such an impetus to forwarding, that the uggre- ' gate toll would be increased. The subject is an important one for the i consideration of the Legislature of this and i every other State having public works com- ! municating with the W?3t. As soon as the I value of this grain becomes known in Great Britain, | the demand for it must be very great; and every fa. J cility should be extended to the producers of the ' West, to get it to the Atlantic shipping ports, as cheap as possible. The reduction in the duty in Great Britain, upon tins article, we consider the most important reduction in the whole list, not only to the agriculturists of the United States, bdt to the consumers of it in the United Kingdom. The duty on corn entered into Great Britain, under the n-w tariff, will be one shilling sterling, or twenty four cents, per <;uarter of eight English bushels, or nine American bushels, being shout two and a half cents per bushel. Mismanagement of the Mails.?We are con stantly receiving complaints from Connecticut, of the irregulurity of the reception of the Xrw York Hr raid by our subscribers. The New Milford Repub lican, of the 20th instant, says:? Can tbo editor of Ihe Sew York Herald inform u* the reason why hie daily is not received at this ollice, until two and sometimes three days alter the Tribune, which never fuila coming to it* subscriber*. We should like to kuow where the fault is t Tho IltralJ is like a good paying subscriber?we can't get along without it. So many complaints came to us from one small town in that Stute, that we induced one of our sub scribers to examine into the cause, if there was any, at the office at his place. The annexed is the re Eiilt of his inquiry:? Post Office, We^h-oht, Jan. 21, IS 16. Dui Sin? In answer to your enquiries in regard to tho Herald, I would state that thore me hut two daily Herald's como to thill oflice, viz : vour's and another?they both come under the same envelope, and when one fails, they both do. If the papers are regularly mailed iu New York, and miscarry. I should suppose they would reach their destination alter a day or two; but, a* the papers due on a givonday do not subsequently arrive, I am inclined to think they are not regularly mailed at New York. I re gret extremely that you are so frequently disappointed; but I can assure you, sir, tbo fault is not mine. Respectfully, yours, &c. O. L. CABLE, P. M. Now we are sure that the papers are regularly sent from the Herald office,and are regularly received at the Post Oflice in this city. Of this fact we are fully satislied; and yet the official paper oi Mr. Post, master Morris is regularly received by its subscrib ers, whilst the Herald is about half the time either detained or lost. We refer this matter to the Hon. Cave Johnson,with the hope that he will find a rem edy for our grievances. State Printing.?The r port of the Printing Committee .resented t the Senate at Al bany, on Saturday, 21st inst., is a h: ly inte resting document. items of payments made to sundry printers, be seen seme evidence of what might be call corruption." The lollowing exhibit shows the which have been paid to a | few favored individuals, within the last twenty years;? RiccAriTri.ATio>' of Payments.

' Thus it will tie seen nt a glunco, that ovar eight hun dred thousand dollars lias been drawn from the public treasury during the last twenty years, to meet the ex treasury during the last twenty years, to meet the ex pense of public printing, and over live hundieJ and twenty two thousand dollars of which has been scooped into the capacious lsp ot the present State Printer." We conceive that it would hardly be possible to draw up a better or more conclusive argument in fa vor of relonn than that which the above statement contains. It is, indeed, such a convincing argu ment, that we will not add to it; but content our selves with recommending close and fixed attention to its facts. As it proves relorm to be necessary, we say, let us have that reform, speedily and with out delay?let the public printing be thrown open to fair competition, and not henceforth Ire made a job for corrupt and party purposes. Taxes upon Seamen.?We have seen a memorial, signed by numerous merchants, shipmasters, and others, pruying the repeal, or alteration, of n certain law passed just prior to the close of the last session of the Legislature. Tnis law requires that every seaman, arriving at the port of New York, shall j pay the sum of one dollar for foreign voyages, and twenty-five cents for coasting voyages, for the sup port of the tSeamen's Retreat, on Staten Island. It further appears, that after meeting the current ex penses of the year IS145, and discharging every lia bility incurred in the maintenance thereof, and ex pending a large amount in making improvements, 1 there is remaining in the Merchants' Hank, and in State stocks, a surplus of over eleven thousand dol lars. It does really seem that the poor, hard-working, noble-hearted teamen, are taxed, in proportion to their means, more than any other class. Possessing as they do no properly qualification, it is really a piece of special taxation. The mechanic, or luborer, 1 under the same circumstances, is liable to no taxa- j ion, and may at the same time receive the benefit of treatment at the City Hospital, at the public ex pense. Moreover, in addition to the tax imposed by j the Legislature, seamen are required, by the Uni ed States law, to pay the sum ot twenty cents per. month for the privilege of hospital treatment. The memorialists, in order to equalize this tax, suggest that the inequality could be obviated by requiring the payment of a certain sum, in the fol lowing manner, to witFor all voyages beyond the Cape oiGood Hope and Cupc Ilorn, one dollar and fifty cents per voyage; voyages beyond the Equator, and this side of either the Cape of Good Hope or i'ape Horn, seventy-five cents ; to Europe, the Mediterranean, Africa and its Islands, fifty cents; the West Indies, ihiriy-scven and a halt cents ; South American States and Mexico, fifty cents ; and for coasting voyages, twenty cents |*r voyage. Under the present law, the poor sailor, receiving as lie does, but small, often far too small wages, finds it impossible, after paying necessary expenses for clothing, Arc , to more lhan pay these numerous taxes imposed upon him. We sincerely hope our shipmasters and merchants will push along tins pe tition, and that our legislators will attend to it. Ocean Steam Navigation ?It appears that tit contract to convey the mails across the Atlantic, i American steamships, is yet to be sanctioned b Congress, and that the ? WO,000 is yet to be ippri priated. PlSTIK'iUISmn DlPAItTURKS i ROM TitK "Gl.OIIK." ?.1.1". Crampton, Esq., Secretary of Legation to H II. Majesty, at Washington, and the Hon.

Seven were for conviction and live for acquittal | Education amono thb Inbian*.?The Cherokee Advocate of the 29th ult., published at Tahlequah, in the Cherokee Nation, contains a tabular exhibit of the number of children who attended the public schools of the Nation in 1845. Tne total number of scholars who attended in the schools of the several districts, appears to be 655. Of these 102 were males, and 253 females. This is a small number for an entire "Nation," and would lead us to conclude either that the Nation itself is very'small, or that the practice of sending children to school is very rarely pursued; but we must take into consideration that it is among the Indians, and, therefore, speaks very favorably. The report of the superintendent, however, says: "The great irregularity ofattemlance at ichool by the pupila, is a cause ot general 'complaint among the teach ers, and shows the absence ol that interest on the part of parents, and the exorcise of authority, which aro es sential to remedy this evil, end to awaken the minds of their children to the importance of acquiring an edu cation.", It appears by the report, lhat 5(7200 are annually appropriated for these schools, of which not so much as one half goes to the payment of teachers. There must be something wrong tn a system, where Boards, and Committees, and Superintendents, and printing, and much other useless paraphernalia, swallow up the funds which ought to go for provid* ing competent instructors. Very little, however, can be expected from the present system and course of education adopted in the public schools. Nothing is taught but the commonest rudiments of the commonest Eng lish education, such as reading and writing. But it is curious to see how these mere elements ?not of learning, but cf mere mechanical know ledge?are spun out, and so magnified by changes of names, and magnificent epithets, as to appear to those who know no better, a wonderful amount of wonderlul wisdom. No man ever was a scholar under such on education. We have, nevertheless, strong hopes that the sys tem will be improved. It speaks well for the Che rokees, for their support of even the present system. Education among the Indians is in its infancy; yet there are a great many very intelligent Cherokees. magnetic telegraph.?we understand tlmtar rangements are goiog forward with great vigor, to have the telegraphic communication between this city and Boston completed at the earliest possible moment. The line from Boston to New Haven is nearly completed, and will be in working order be fore many days. By the IStJj of March, it is ex pected the line to Bridgeport, and probably to this city, will be in operation, so that the news by {he next steamship to Boston, can be telegraphed through, or to Bridgeport, and conveyed f rom thence to this city by express. Tiie managers of these lines are deserving of the gratitude of the public, for their perseverance and energy in thus endeavor ing to lay before them the early foreign news. When all the lines are completed to New York, the immense advantage that will be afforded, of ransmitting news, will be of incalculable benefit to he public, and to none more than the press, particu lcularly the stock-jobbing or Holy Alliance portion, who, no doubt, would have been pleased to have it in operation a week ago. From 1'orto llico.?The brig Harbinger arrived last evening from Mayaguez, bringing accounts up to the 1th instant, but no news of importance. Theatrical*. I'abk Theatre.?Mies Choi lotto Barnes made her de but last evening at the Park, as Juliet, in Sbakspeare's beautiful creation of " Romeo and Juliet.'' She was en thusiastically received, and the expectations of ber warmest friends were more than realized. Miss Barnes is a young actress, but baa evidently devoted much time and study to her profession. Her appearance is most prepossessing, nnd she brings a cultivated mind to aid in the delineation of her characters ; her conception of which seems to ho just and natural. But she lacks physical power, end, Iheieforo, fails in rendering what the has admirably conceived to be the true meaning of ver author. This eveni jf Miss Barnes will appear as Lady Teazle, in the tine old comedy of " The School for Scandal." We shall heie have an opportunity of pro nouncing upon the versatility ot her talents. The Mcr ?utio of Mr. Vandenhoft'. last evening, was most excel lent. as was the ltomeo of Mr. Dyott ' At the conclusion of the tragody, Mr. Sends end his beautitul children ep peerd in their celebrated end truly astonishing gymnas tic exercises. These ariitlea are the admiratiou of all who have witnessed their performances, in which grace beauty, (kill, and agility, are happily blended. This evening they will appear for the lourth time, and we hope to see u crowded and fashionable house. Howe's Circus at Talmo's.?A crowded and fashion able audience were in attendance last evening at thi* popular and agreeable place of amueement, and all seemed highly pleased with the entertainment pi esented This evening, a splendid bill i* offered, consisting o1 acts of horsemanehip, posturing, contortions, ice. The i Marcarte will perform one of hor celebrated Madame'Marcarte will perform one of hor most brilliant and daring acts on horseback, and we doubt not a crowded house will assemble to witness her astonishing teat*. On Wednesday, there will be an afternoon performance at holt-past J. Welch and Delevan's National Ciacue, Philadel rHiA.?We learn from our correspondent that this splen" lid establishment ia nightly thronged with the elite of Philadelphia, and the entertainments are said to be con ducted in a very superior minner. The most talented j troupe of equestrians in this country is here engaged, among whom the names of Levi North, McKarland, T. V. Turner, the River* Family, and Mrs. Louis i Howertl, shine conspicuously. A supeib stud of horses belong to the euterpnsing management, whoso libe<ality in cater ing for the public taste appears to be appreciated by all. Messrs. Wolch and Delevan will shortly terminate their brilliant season in our sitter city, in order to fulfil their engegements in Baltimore and Washington. We com mend them to tho favorable notice of all lovers of agree able amusement Louts Giskrt.?This celebrated tenor singer will give a grand concert at Ntblo's on the 3d of March. He will be assisted by several of the great arti-ts ut present ia this country, and intonds to produce a bill that cannot tail of drawing a very large and fashionable audience. Leopold Dk Meyer's Concert, in Philadelphia-? Tho liist concert given by Leopold De Meyer, in 1'bila. delphia, is spoken of in the highest terms by the journals ol that city. We make the following extract from one of them Tlio spacious Baloen of the Musical Kund llall, was filled 011 Saturday evening, (notwithstanding the shocking condition ot our streets, which were almost impassable in many places, in consequence ot the ice and snow,) with ono of the most brilliant audiences that ever assembled therein, to witness the first appearance ia Philadelphia, of tho justly celebrated Leopold I'c Meyer, the greatest pianist, we ever had among us. On his entree to take hit scat at tho piano, he wo* warmly greeted, but tho liist touch upon the instrument silenced the murmurs of approbation which pervaded the hall at his prepossessing appcarancn and gentlemanly deport ment. In a few moments alter ho commenced play ing, the nudieuca were electrified, and at the conclu'ionuf the first piece, " Fantasia on jJirs, I Pari rani," the ap plause was tremendous, lie i* coitainly a wonderful perlormor, and the anticipations of all who heard him on shtnrrday night, were fully realised. At the conclusion of each piece, the applause was actually deafening, and Mr. De Meyer may congratulate himseil upon producing a sensation in this city, which will ousure tor h.m crowded audiences whenever he may appear." Welch .v Manns'* Circus.?A portion of this company, under the surveillance and management of Col. A.

(Unique at the Hcdleal OeputMataf the I'nlveriltjr of New York* The session is now rapidly drawing to a close, in fact, on Friday noxt the last lectures of the season will be delivered, and the halls, that have for so many months put resounded daily with the admirable lessons of the professors, and the busy hum of the four hundred rnd odd students that hare been in attendance, wilt be all deserted and lonely. On Saturday, the examinations of candidates for the de gree of doctor of medicine, commenced, and tbey will bo continued throughout the week, when probably, some hundred and fifty young gentlemen will be declared competent to tBke their stand in the ranks of the profes' sion. This is an anxious ordeal to pus, and many a heart is kept in suspense betwixt hopa and fear until tho fiat of the faculty has gone forth, whereby they are re lieved of all their doubts and distresses. One thing is certain, that every care is taken by the faculty to do justice to the various applicants for the honor of writing M. D. after their names ; and moreovor, the great atten tion that has been raid to tho lectures generally, and the close application to their private studies that has been made by the class, will warrant us in saying, that ihe graduating class of the medical department of the Uni versity of New York, this spring, will prove, at least a woithy addition to the renks of an honorable pro fession. The annual commencement, and public delivery of the diplomas to tho successful candidates, will take place early in March, and we shall give a full report of >. the proceedings on that occasion. But to return to tho clinique of yesterday?there were ( eighteen cases, in ail, presented to the class. The first was an intant four mouths of age, affected with a rigidity of the muscles of the neck, of some weeks standing. Dr. Mott recommended the mother to make the child lay on its sound side, aod thus endeavor to overcome this rigidity, before it should have settled ' into a confirmed contraction ; he also directed e stimu lating liniment to be applied to it outwardly. _ The next was a little girl with en inflammatory condi tion of the eyelids, of ten months standing. As the roots of the eyelashes were involved in this, the lashes them selves were retracted, and the child directed to use certain washes, in order to allay the Inflsmed condition oi the parts. Then lollowel a little girl with incipient chorea, or St. Vitus's dance. The doctor put her upon the use of I Fowler's solution. The next was a melancholy case of that m'terable dis ease, sciolula. It was in tho person of a fine looking lad, eighteen years of age, who, some years ago, was attacked with an abscess in his back, in the lumbar re gion, that was healed up ; but since then he has shown an evident tendency to strumous disease of the verte br re, and now he also has the symptoms of that lament able thing, a lumbar abscess. The l'rofessor recom mended an issue to be established in the parts, end gave him general directions as to diet, lie. The next was a case of injury ol the face and eyes, from the explosion ot gunpowder, one of those cases that so frequently occur in our quairics and mines. The present patierrt had one of bis eyes injured to a certain extent, but still there are reasonable hopes of bis yet re covering the use of it. After this, another case of injury of one eye from a blow was presented, lu this patient it was a very se rious thing, as he was a watchmaker by trade, and from a long habit of using the right eye only in his occupa tion, he had gradually lost the faculty of using the lolt; that is, for the viewing of minute objects. The Professor recommended cold applications, &.c.,acd a general treat ment. Some two or three very extraordinary cases were then presented. They were perfect anomalies iu ana tomical structure?indeed, such as are rarely seen, even ina|ionglife of practice. For one of these cases, (a young lad of about eighteen years old.) the sympathies oi the Professor were so much moved that he recom mended that a subscription should bo made by the class lor the benefit of the poor object. This was accordingly done, and thus, though the surgical resources of the college could not, from the very extraordiuary nature of his deformities, relieve him, at least, he went on his way with a few dollSrs extra in his pocket. After this, the class separated. These cliniques will bo continued every Saturday, throughout the year. A3 many of the students pass their vacations in the city, though the college will not be in actual session, still there will bo this weekly re

union, from which they, on the one band, derive the most useful kind of practical knowledge, and the poor patients sound medical advice. Meeting of the Shipwreck Society, at the American Institute* This Society met last night, to take into conaider tion the late disastrous shipwrecks on the shores of New Jersey. Mr. Ooden, at 8 o'clock, took the chair, and call ed the meeting to order. Mr. Meigs was appointed Secrttaiy. The Chairman brieily stated the objects of the meeting, and made snmo remarks upon the wreck of the John Mintuin, about which, he saia, there was some thing not yet explained?some mystery not understood; for at the time shc^struck, the wind was off shore, and in her favor. An account of the disaster was then i end from the Com ier and Entjuircr, of the 9th inst. The chairman then made some remarks upon the small loss of life on our shores, in comparison with that which every year takes place on the coast of England. Gen. Chandler observed that there was something wrong in this matter?that he had been informed if an effort had been made, many of those who perishod might have been saved. A further conversation took place on this topic, in tae course of which, Gen. Tallmadus spoke with much feeling upon the disaster, and commented especially with much warmth upon the conduct of those who might have assisted, but neglected to help the unfortunate sufferers. General T. also expressed the opinion that it was due to the Citizens of New York to exert themselves to remove this stigma and reproach from them ? In distant countries, when it shall be related that such a wrack happened, with such a loss of life, as it were, at the very doors of our city, thoy will not distinguish, but will suppose that tho New York peoj le were tnose who were guilty of the inhumanity of letiviDg them to perish without effort, and plundering thnm after they had thus miserably perishod. Gan. T. went oil to suggest a reme dy in future cases. He proposed that a committeo should be appointed to collect all the facts relatiog to this melancholy shipwreck,with power to call a general meeting of the citizens on some early day this week, or at early as could be, to take the subject into considera tion and deviso remedies against the recurrence of an other such calamity. He tt,ought that if the< e had been a certainty of reward to those who might rescue any of the sufferers, efforts would have been made, aod they would not have been loft to perish in the very reach of the shore, and within the power of relief Mr. Meigs concurred with the remarks which had been made, und dwelt with much force upon the impor tance of vindicating the character of the city from this terrible stigma. After some {cither very interesting discussion, in whioh Messrs. Chupin, Thompson, Francis, Chandler, Meigs and Mr. Ogden participated, a committee was ap pointed, consistu g of all the ebov named gentlemen, with power to gather information, and call a public meeting, in order to provide means for having in iuturo (according to the suggestion ol Gen. Tallmaiige) a tug boat and life-boats, or other necessary aids, rcaay at such placoa, and also to remunerate those who shall oxert themselves to savo the lives ol persons so uuhappily situated. The opinion was oxpressed by se gentlemen present, that it belonged to the General Government to move in this matter, and out of the im memo revenue which New York brought to its coffers, to devote something for such a purpose New York (it was remarked by Mr. Ogden) would do her duty, but it wasinNew Jersey that these measures of relief and precaution were required. After a highly interesting conversation, the meeting adjourned to n great meeting, which will immediately be called, when the Marshal oi Now Jersey will be present, and such a detail of facts made as will astonish and in terest the pnbllc mind, and lead, henceforth, to the avoidance of such a wholesale sacrifice of life on the coast, and in the very doors of this great sea port.

Misu Caroline Good man, Hged about 1H, in Mobile, was instantaneously killed on the 13th inst., while lying in bed, by lightning. It seems thet about ? o'clock in the morning, the resl , deuce of Duke W. Goodman, Esq , was struck by light ning, aod much shattered. Striking tho chimney, it entered the room in which wee the deceased, in com pany with Mrs. Simpson and her child, sleepiog in one trad. Miss G. was lying on the farther sine, but the subtle fluid, running along the ceili g until immediately over hor, met with an obstruction in a small hole ia the plastering, from which it glanced directly into tho face of tho deceased, burning her face, breast and arms into i a complete cinder! Mrs Sampson end her child were i both stunned, and somowhat injured, but we believe not seriously. The bedding caught fire, end but tor the timely easistence of a gentlemen sleeping in en adjoin ing apartment, and who, smelling fire, burst into the room, and saved the unconscious beings, we doubtless should have more to add to our tele of sorrow. Another Snow Storm.?Tho snow commenced falling here nt 2 o'clock, yesterdy morning, find con tinued most diligently until 9 o'clock last evening, a ,'d rng something like n foot to the body previously upon the ground. Fortunately the wind was not high, and the drifts are not bed hero.

The pitchers weigh 110 ounces, and the whole service cost $500. - At eight o'clock the company, which consisted of His Honor the Mayor, Col. Delavau, Gen. Stryker, Alter man l'urdy, and a number of the Common Council, ad journed to an upper room, where a most magnificent supper was set. After an address to the throne of Grace, by the Rev. K. W. Geitenbainer, the company sat down and discustel the eatables; after which, Col. Dalavan said?A11 are probably aware of the cir cumstances which have called us together. Ji diversity ol opinion exist d in regard to the celebration of the celebration of the day when the British left New York, when Cerletou rode out and Washington rode in. A meeting of the officers was held in this house, and a majority decided not to parade on that day.? Gen. Storms said, notwithstanding his higo opin ion of the officers, he should pa ade on that Jay, if he paraded only with his own company, and hs did parade A number of officers met a short time after wards. and the present course of action was decided up on. His Honor the Mayor will now present the plate. The Mayob thonaro.o and said?General Storms?I have been requested by my fellow citizens to present to you this service of plate The duty is a pleasant one, for at the same time, I can give my high appreciation of 2our integrity as a soldier and a man. We have but few olidays to commemorate the glerious deeJs of the re volution, and it would be a staiu upon our national Char acter. it this great day which you determined to cele brate was overlooked. Accept, then, these offerings irom warm and patriotic hearts. Time may, indeed, dim their lustre, but never the spirit that gave them. The Mayor sat down. General HroHMs arose and said?Mr. Mayor and friends, 1 accept with pleasure the gift you have offered me. The duty I have performed, however, is but the natural duty of man. Enough it was for me to find my fellow-citizens spontaneous in coming to my support; but when I see that feeling carried out in this generous gift, I can heartily thank you, and must say this is the greatest day of my life. 1 can't sit down without thank ing the press, who supported mo on that occasion. Gen tlemen, I thank you heartily. . CoI.Dklaian then tead a number of toasts, compli mentary and patriotio, which were heartily respond ed to. CoLroBTr.fR Association.?The first anniversary of this association was held last evening, at the Broadway Tabernacle. The exercises were commenced with prayer, after which the Secretary read the annual re portof the proceedings for the past year. The society has had in its employ one hundred and forty three col porteurs, one hundred and seven of whom used their influence among the native population, and one hundred and liity-throe thousand families have been visited by them, it is the wish of the officers of the association, that the number of colporteurs be increased, and the measures for next year be on a larger scale. Mr. S. W. Stebbins, a colporteur belonging to the association, de tailed the result of his workings in West Tennossee, and the many changes in the religious habits of the people whom he had visited. The Iter. Dr. Bathune delivered a very eloquent discourse, in which he advocated the system of colporteurage, as the best system that could possibly ho adopted for diffusing the influence of the gospel. He was followed by the Rev Mr. West of Ban gor, Maine, who spoke in the place of the Rev. W. W. Eberts, who was unavoidably absent. The attendance was not as large as we have seen at former meetings of the association. Washington's Birth-Day?The Oregon and Texas Ball.?The 114th anniversary of Washington's birth-day occurring on Sunday, it was celebrated yesterday. Quite a number of military companies were out, and the flags wore flying from the City Hall, Castle Garden, the Custom House, and the principal hotels. Guns were fired through the day irom the fort on Governor's Island In the evening a number of balls took place, the princi pal of which was that id the Texas and Oregon Associa tion, at.Castle Garden. The spacious and beautiful room was most exquisitely trimmed with flags, banners, and portraits of di.tinguished individuals. The daughters of the "young democracie" were there, in all their strength end beauty, and tripped most merrily with their gay and gallant partners. It was really a magnificent aluir, and passed off without any thing occurring to mar the plea sure ol the night. Anti-Restkll Meeting.?A large number of hand bills were posted around the streets on Sunday, calling on the citizens to assemble at the foot of Courtlandt I street, yesterday, at 13 o'clock, ior the purpose of hold- , ing a meeting and appointing a committee to wait on | Madame Restell, and request her to leive the city. I About ld.o'clock, a crowd began to gather, not at the i lootof Couilandt street, but around Madame Restell's door, and by half post 13, there were at least one thou sand persons there. About this time, between forty and fifty of the Star Police mado their appearance, and stationed themselves upon the doorstep of Madame 1 npon tbo doorstep of Madame Res tell About this time some one called out that the meet ing would adjourn to the foot of Courtlaudt street. Tae crowd immediately went down there, when a hogshead was placed on the corner of the sidewalk, and a person in the crowd mounted upon it, who commeneed a < speech. He commenced by expressing a hope that no ono had come there with the desire to create any distur bance, or commit a breach .of the peace. He then made some statements in regard to ResteU, and concluded by recommending that a committee of property holders in the vicinity, bo appointed to wait upon the Mayrr and demand the removal cf Madame Uestell, on the ground that her pretence endango:od the proporty of the neigh- I borhood. The meetiog was very peacablo, and after the 1 speech, the larger number of persons returned to Green wich street, ana a crowd continued around Madame Res tell's door most of the afternoon. There w??, however, we believe, no attempt at violence, and the police were present through the day. We certainly hope that nothing will be done to endanger the peace of the city. Under all circumstances the supremacy of the law should be maintained, and we hope our law-loving citi zens will use their influence for thij purpese. Lost in the John Mintlt.n.?The following are the names of a umber of parsons who were lost in the John Minturn. Wo give tbeoi ,that their friends may know thoirsad fate.

The other " knack," or pickpocket, called John O'Connell, when arrested by Mr. Simpson in the church, was observed to drop trom under his cloak n memorandum book ; this book had just been picked from tho pocket of Mr. Henry Damarcst, and was identified to be his property; consequently these two impudent scoundrels are both " foul " Brown was com mitted on the old indictment, and O'Connell for petit larceny, by Justice Drinker.
