NEW YORK HERALD. New York, Monday, IH?rth l#i The Next Foreign Newt and Kxprenses?Oar Arrangement*. The steam-ship Hiberniu is now in tier twelfth day, and we may expect to receive her news by Thursday or Friday, or before. We stated, a few days since, that we had made arrangements to have the next news trom Euro|?e transmitted to us by the magnetic telegraph, from Boston, as tar as the telegraph should be extended, and the remainder ot the distance by express. These arrangements were made with Livingston <V Wells, the enterprising express agents in Wall street; but we find that circumstances have inter vened which will deleat our expectations in the lightning line, tor this time. On Saturday last, we received the following letter Irotn Messrs. Livingston & Wells. It speaks for use lft? No 10 Wall *mi kt, Suturday, noon. To thi Editor or oik Hkrald : Dear 8ir:-The President of the Mo?ton Telegraph <"ompany hat not returned from the Kant ward, and bis delay there leads us 10 fear that something is wrong with the telegraph. This, added to the unwillingness of the President of the ilartlord and New Haven Rail road Company to promise, positively, that he would place n locomotive at our disposal, at all hosts, which should hot interfere with the running of the regular i rains on his roud, renders it doubtful what course it is best to pursue, as to the proposed express from Boston. As the-ether papers here have made, as it is understood, other Rxpres* arrangements, it will be no great disap pointment to them u wo decline running the Kxprets. Should you (eel disposed to excuse us, we shall, unless ihe President of the Telegraph Company should return to-day with favorable news, not run the Express. We much regret this, not from pecuniary considera tions, but lrom the fear that you will be disappointed. Please give this your early attention. We remain your obedient servants. Li VINOSTON fc WELLS. This is an evt-ut that we did not fully calculate upon; but, ander ttie circumstances, we console ourselves with the tact that we have attempted to do the best in our power for our patrons, in tiying to use the very swiftest means for the acquisition of the news. It did not at first enter our mind that lightning was seldom to be had in the winter, it is only in the hot, sultry weather ol the summer that we are blessed with a few flushes, to purify the at mosphere. The Holy Alliance have made tremendous exer tions to beat us, and we don't know but they may succeed. Newspapers in Boston, New York, Phi ladelphia and Baltimore, have entered into a coali tion, and they have engaged all the routes between here and Boston, thrown open to them by our chari table feelings, and our earnest desire to give the magnetic telegraph a fair trial, so far as we could It is rather difficult tor a single journal, even like the Herald, to compete with such a terrible opposi tion as is thus arrayed against us. With the devil, engaged at an enormous expense, for their head, and eighteen or twenty papers, in four large cities, tor lheir tail, the Holy Alliance have strained their lazy nerves to the utmost tension, with the determination of knocking the Herald into a cocked hat, for an hour or two, that it may afterwards, come out brighter and clearer. What a formidable rival the Herald is to them, will appear trom this fact. In deed, we are beginning to think that Napoleon himself was a little behind us, even in his greatest glory, for he never had such a combination against him as we have now against us. If we be beaten, we cannot help it; and if we can't help it, who can 1 Naj>oleon himself met with reverses, and we expect the same. We must state, however, that we never intend going to St. Helena. We intend to give the Alli ance a few more ideas in newspaper enterprize, to show them that the spirit within is not yet crushed. We liave started them, and we mean to koep them on the move ; and to carry out tins intention, we have arranged the following expected packets, in their regular order of sailing, and which are now duf at this port with later nows :?

Our arrangements for running ocean expresses are pertect, and we hope to be exclusive in giving to the world the news they will bring. Indeed, we intend to despatch, early this morning, one ol our swiftest clippers, with a magnetic keel inserted, not by Professor Morse, to cruise of! Boston, in order to intercept the Hibernia; and it may, per chance, happen that we shall, in this way, get her news as early, if not earlier, than the Holy Alliance We shall see. It has been seen, however, that although we may be beaten in the next steamship news, we have more than made up for it already. Charter Election?Fare? and Tragedy. The preparations making throughout the city, tor the charter election, and the multitude of parties de veloping themselves, and taking their several posi tions, are becoming ihe subjects of farce and laugh ter to all reasonable men in this metropolis How inany ditl rent tactions are we to have organized for the next election I Probably half a dozen. There are, first, the " wbigs proper"?then there are the " whigs improper"?then we have the " abolition ists"?then the " city reform democrats"?then the " ultra democrats"?and then the "natives." The course which things are taking in reference to this matter, is really deplorable. Here are the people of this city, putting themselves into a state of the deepest agitation, and rallying this little fac tion, and that little faction, on the municipal elec tion, involving the distribution of the loaves and J fishes, while the government of the Union is in a state ol the deepest agitation, on a subject of vital importance to the country, involving peace or war, 1 for years to come. It is humiliating to think of the frivolity and littleness of the public impulse, among the intelligent voters of this city, at such a crisis, frittering away their strength on an unimportant matter?wasting their energies among miserable clique* and sections of party, in petty wards?while the chief magistrate of the country, and Congress, are now in a state of the deepest agitation on a question of territorial right, involving a conflict winch may lead to war. Is it not time tor the public mind, to withdraw its attentions a little from farce and fix tham on matters of deeper and more tragic importance! The interests of this city are more involved in the settlement of the Oregon question, whatever that may be, than in all other questions ol the day, be they municipal or tariff, if we are to have years of peace, the extent and pros perity of this city cannot be calculated, so great will it be. If we are to have years of war, growing out of our foreign relations, it involves an entire revolution in this metropolis, and all those who make it their residence. Considering these views, which preas upon the mind, from the consid eration of what is now agitating Congress, it is lm l>oaaible to aay hut that they bear strongly upon the interests of this city. It may, indeed, appear to be a subject of small consequence in New York, whether the United States will retain or give up rive de grees of territory beyond the Kocky Mountains; but this very small matter becomes, from its con nexion with our relations with England?involving the questions of " peace," or ** war"?one of the greatest questions which have come before the country tor the last thirty years ; and yet, while we are in a state of doubt and uncertainty as to the re sult, and while the President seems to be waiting for a movement on the jmrt of the people?while Congress is divided and distracted en this question, and in the same position, people here are present ing nothing but scenes ol division as to the elrction ol a tew batches of Aldermen, and baskets tuit of i lyort. The Oregon question is tar more important for the people of this city to expre* their opinions upon than all the questions now uelore them?than all the queationa of the last forty years. Now is the time for the people to show a national feeling to the country. The first specimen and sample of public opinion Irom this city, will be the first step that will give a tone to the whole Union It will produce a powerful effect all over the Union, and with those parties we are now contending with. It will also, perhaps, in duce the President, and those who are now agitat ing the question in Congress, to come to some con clusion on the subject. New York Pilots.?Ab the pilot question is now < occupying a great deal ol attention in the legislative halls of some of the States, and also in Congress, it nmy not be amiss to give a brief history ol the causes which have led to this discussion, and also the present state of the question. It is desirable that all oar citizens, lar and near, should be mlorm. ed on the subject, and judge of its merits?particu larly as the pilots, whose rights have been sadly in fringed upon, and the very bread taken lrom them selves and families, by hasty and imnertect legisla tion, have uow a memorial before Congress, pray ing that those rights of which they have been de prived, may be restored to them, and that the injus tice under which they have been suffering for ten t years past, may be removed. Previous to the year 1837, the pilotage of this great port was in the hands of what are termed the New York pilots, a class of men, that for energy, perseverance, skilfulness, and disregard of their ' own life aud comfort, in the discharge of their du ties, has seldom been equalled, and, we may confi dently assert, never excelled. In the winter of that year, two shipwrecks occuned on our coast, attend ed with a loss of human life?that of the Bristol, and that of the Mexico?two emigrant ships. These shipwrecks were caused by a violent hurri cane, attended with a heavy tall of snow, which rendered a view ol an object, but at a short distance, impossible. In fact, the storm of the year 1836 was as violent, and nearly as latal to property and lite, as the storm which caused the loss ol the John Minturn and other vessels, a short time since. The calami tous effects of that gale, as was to be expected, caused a thrill of horror in the whole community Previous to and at that time, there were some differences between the Wall street philoso phers and the pilots, on political matters j and party spirit being very high, the opponents of the pilots, composed, us they always have been, ol whigs, looking upon the latter as dependant upon them, at tempted to coerce the pilots into voting as their op ponents dictated. These men, who are to a man democrats, rebelled against this interference thsir political privileges, and refused to sacrifice their right of voting as they themselves thought proper, to any set of men. Hence we date the commencement of the unholy warfare against the pilots, that has been relentlessly carried on ever since. In the meantime, the Bristol and Mexico were wrecked, and the opponents of the pilots lost ho time in using the excitement thus occasioned, lor their own advantage, in furtherance of their per secution of the pilots. Stories the most exaggera ted were immediately circulated, and the lamenta ble sacrifice ol life and property, attributed to the negligence and incompetency of the pilots. A portion of the press was brought to bear against them. Peti tions were industriously circulated, and signed by persons who believed the misrepresentations of their opponents, and their newspapers, and sent to Congress, which was then in session, praj ing that the pilot business of this port might be thrown open to all persons,who, in the opinion of the Pilot Com missioners, were competent for the business. The excitement created in New York extended over the whole country, and Congress partook ol it. Thinking that legislation was necessary to prevent, il jiossible, a recurrence of such disasters, and believing the false reports Bet afloat by the enemies of the pilots,Congress hastily, and acting under excited feelings, passed a law throwing open the pilot business of this port to the citizens ol every State that should engage in it. In thiB way, the vile purposes ol the persecutors ol the pilots were attained, and immediately then sprung in to existence a class of pilots, who, it was ardently hoped, would cut up the pilotage ol this port, and ruin the old pilots. The Jersey pilots, as they are called, were thus at once admitted upon a footing ol equality with the old pilots, and perfect tyros in the business?men who, in the nature ol Ihings, could not undertake the business they were ushered into? I wittiout undergoing the ordinary term of probation and apprenticeship, were put in the field, to com pete with others who had followed the business from their childhood, served a long appren ticeship, underwent a most rigid examination in fact, men who had made the business their profession, as a means of supporting their wives and families, and devoted years to the ac quirement of the skill and experience requisite to enable them to earn their living and follow their profession. This rank injustice was defended by the oppo nents of the old pilots, on the ground that a certain degree of competition was necessary to be intro duced into the pilot service ; and.forthe purpose of creating this competition, it was considered proper by Congress, to admit the citizens of other States to partake of its advantages. This absurd reasoning in fluenced the action of Congress?absurd, because as long as the nature of man remains as it always Iirs. there will be individual competition among all class es of men, whether they belong to one State or ano ther. But the injustice of it is manifest. The old pilots had spent th Lest part of their lives in study ing their profession ; they had braved the dangers of the sea for a seriesof years, and hourly incurred the risk of life; they had invested their property in the business, thinking that no legislation could be so unjust as to deprive them of the rights that they thought they were entitled to ; th?y were not in J the slightest degree, as has been fully proved, to blame lor the loss of the Bristol and Mexico; yet Con gress steps in, and at one stroke, deprives them of all those rights, and allows men who are not subject to the laws of our State, who pay no taxes for the support of our State government, and who vote in another State, to come in and stand on equal foot ,ng with the citizens of New York in piloting ves sels into the harbor ot New York, and to and from the city of kiew York. Is not this palpably absurd 1 And is it not doing gross injustice to the New York pilots* f It cannot but be looked upon as an inter ference by the General Government, with the rights of the State ot New York. It never has been denied that our own Legisla ture is capable of enacting its own laws. It our Legislature had thought the alteration in the pilot laws necessary, surely they would have made it, without calling upon the General Government for assistance > By this improper interference of the government, the New York pilots have suffered considerably and unjustly. They have, however, I appealed to public opinion, and endeavored to set it right on the question. They have shown, re- I peatedly, the falsity of the charges made against them?the injustice of the law passed by Congress, in the winter of 1887; and are now striving to be re-instated in the enjoyment ol those privi leges which were hastily torn from them. They have memorialized the Legislature of the State of New York, praying for an expression of the opi nion of that body on the law of 1837; and a favor able expression has already |>asaed one House, and, no doubt, it will be concurred in by the other; for the real issues involved in the question are being understood at last The pilots ol Baltimore, too, have felt the ill effects of this law; and the Legisla ture ot the State of Maryland has recently |?ssed resolutions declaring it expedient for Congress to re peal the law of 1887, and leave to the States the power of enacting their own pilotage laws. The passage of sncti resolutions by the Legislatures of these States, cannot but have a favorable effect on the action of Congress, before whom the pilots have placed their petition praying for ihe same thing The pilots do not want any special privileges guaranteed to then. All they want is justice. They do not want men from every State in the Union, who owe no alle giance te our State,who own no property, and pay no taxes here, to be privileged in coming in and par taking of the benefits which they spent years before they could attain. We hope Congress will see the justice of their cause and repeal the law of 1837, and give back to this enterprising class of men the right to enjoy those privileges which they have been improperly deprived of. Our own State will then have the business properly arranged. Yankee Enterprise.?That we are a speculative people, full of invention and of rare " modern in- | stances," is no longer to be thought problematical, or entitled to the consideration of a doubt. We have, for years, introduced throughout the entire length and breadth of Europe, a very extended variety of our domestic manufactures?the products of our soil?provisions of every particular quality and kind, and the inventions so especially the dis tinguished characteristic of our countrymen. We have exported corn brooms, wooden clocks, ques tionable spices, unproductive garden seeds, et cel.} j and to complete the picture, and in order to fill the cup of our national glory, we understand that seven thousand tons of white gravel have been shipped to London t-ince the 15th of September last, for the purpose of beautifying th? walks of Hyde, Re gent's, St. James's and Richmond parks?Kensing ton, Temple and Kew gardens?the Zoological So ciety and Surry Zoological grounds and gardens? and that a profitable trade has beeu realized from the introduction of this new article of export. The white gravel here spoken of is taken from the beach ?f Long Island, and is brought up by means of lighters and small class vessels, aud trans-shipped on board of our outward bound vessels, (paying good freight) to the different ports of Europe. Truly, we are a great people, an enterprising peo ple, a money-making people. " No psn -up Utics contracts our powers ; For the whole boundless continent is ours." North Rivxr Navigation.?The mild, soft wea ther which we have had for the past week, has thoroughly loosened the icy bands of winter, and a few more days ol a similar temperature will, pro bably, open the river navigation. On Thursday last, the river was open as far as Poughkeepsie, at which point the mail was landed. The Albany papers of Saturday, state that the water had risen nearly to a level with the dock, and that a freshet was antici pated in consequence of the heavy rains. The snow in that city has lain on the ground constantly for one hundred and four days, affording capital slenih >raly ing ever since the 1st of December; this is rapWly thawing away, and will occasion a tremendous rise in the river, sweeping away all the ice that now ob structs navigation, and, perhaps, something more valuable. New Hampshire Flection.?The election, jus1 ended in New Hampshire, was a very singular onet and the result has surprised many. It was an elec tion not on strict party division, but affecting all sorts of questions?temperance, abolitionism, per secution, whigism, democracy, Texas, anti Texas, Oregon, dec. dec. Owing principally, how ever, to the attempt to overthrow Hale for his vote in Congress on the Texas resolutions, the party lines in the State have been completely broken up; and the whigs and independent democrats will, probably, have sufficient control of the Legislature to elect their candidate to the United States Senate, and regulate other matters, iar from being agree able to the hard-fisted democrats, who have ruled that State since the flood. Anti-rentism.?We predicted, at the commence ment of the difficulties among the tenants of the Patroen Van Rennselaer, that anti-rentism was des tined to give the people and Legislature of this State a great deal of trouble. We refer our readers to the letter of our Albany correspondent, in this day's pa per, for an account of an animated discussion on this subject in the Assembly. There is an evident de sire on the part of members to delay the question; but we think the sooner the question is taken up and disposed of, in some way or other, the better. The question has now nearly reached a crisis, as we perceive its consideration is set down, by special order, for Tuesday of next week, and is to be con tinued until the matter is disposed of. Mismanagement in the Post Office.?We have lately received several complaints from Providence, R. I., relative to'the non-receipt ^>f the Herald. We will find out whether the fault is with our Postmaster, or the Postmaster of Providence. It is with one of those, we are sure, for the papers for our subscri bers are regularly sent from the Herald office. Theatricals. Pake Theatre.?"Don Pasquale," one of Donizetti's most brilliant musical compositions, will be performed this evening, at the Park, for the seventh time. The ex traordinary success which has attended the production of this charming {comic opera?devoid as it is, Of dramatic interest?is one of the best evidences of the musical taste of our citizens. The crowded and fashionable audiences which nightly g'ace the boxes of the theatre, attend solely to listen to the soft and delicious strains of the .music, and attest their admiration by the most rapturous and enthusiastic plau dits. With one exception, the juartelte "All Unbounded," he., and the serenade in act second, have been loud ly and deservedly encored, on every night of repre sentation, and listened to with increasing delight and satisfaction. The admirable performances of the prince ot original Yankee comedians, Dan Marble, have also become a groat attraction, and the whole audience now remain to witness his natural and beautiful delineations of the characteristics of the universal Yankee Nation.? This evening he will again enact his celebrated charac ter of Sampson Hardhead, in the drama of " the Back woo :sman." To-morrow eveniog is set apart for his ben efit, on which occasion, in addition to a new drama en titled the " Oregon," the celebrated artiste, Mr. Sands, and his beautilui children will appear, in their pleasing and grdCeful gymnastic exercises. Bowxav Theatre ?The magnificent historical drama of " Ivanhoe" is still the great attraction at this popular establishment. It ha* been " got up" in a atyl# of unpre cedented splendor, and is decidedly the moat gorgeous sad effective pageant aver produced on the American stage. The manager, Mr. Jackson, has, with hia usual liberality and desire to gratify the taste of his patrons, engaged,in addition to the service* of his own unequalled dramatic corpi, the aid of an excellent equestrian treupc, consisting ot thirty-two male and female riders. The grand tournament in the first, act is a most brilliant exhi bition. The tableaux arc all fine, and the scenery sew and correct. Of the acting we have already spoken in term* of unqualified praise , Mr. Scott, as Isaac the Jew, Mr* (J.Jones as the lair Rebecca, and Messrs. Bianchard and ( oney, as the Black Knight and Uurth, are indeed admirable. " Ivanhoe" and an excellent tarce are pre sented this,evening, and as usual, we hope to see this elegant dramatic temple crowded to its utmost capacity. M. Collinet's Concert.?This celebrated artiste gives a concert on the 30 h inst., on which occasion he will be a.anted by all the available musical talent in the city. M. Collinet is the most brilliant performer on the ItageoL let that ever visited this country, and we doubt not his concert will be graced by the musical elite ol New York. Another Infringement of the Port Office Law ?The Lowell Advertiter oi Saturday has the following paragraphThere was a smart skirmish in one of the lobbies of the Poet Ofllce last evening. A man called lor a pacer, and on* was hsnded him which was charged with letter |>o*tage, according to weight, as it contained " written memoranda,"contrary to law. It appears that on the iaaide of the wrapper waa a regular letter of some 30 tinea, written by a brother at Great I Falls. When the paper was handed over by the Post master and postage demanded, the fallow took th* wrap per, threw the paper back to th* Postmaster, and telling nim to " help himself if he could," started off. But the . Postmaster cut him off at the door, and after e pretty ; smait scuffle, succeeded in drawing him into th* " in ; uar temple,' where he had ample time te cool off and | atone for hia trmusgression. Tnis should serve as a caution to those who era defrauding the Post Offlce of its revenue. I European Emigration to Tkxab.?The unhappy | emigrants who have been entrapped by the colo niser* of Texas are in the greatest distress. They have not yet received the lands promised te them, and many unfortunate wretches have perished from thediseaeee which follow all sort* of privations. They have eent letters to thair native country, giving ordtrs to suspend ell emigration The Constitutionnel of the 10th of"Jan. announces that the police have seized, in the house ef a cRiten of Breslau, all papers reletive to emigratien to 1>xas, lor which ha had bean preparing, and was about to start. In tBia matter Germany ha* imitated Fiunce, where the colonization agents nave bean condemned aa sharpers. Texas will, perhaps, ultimately see the greet " ted in treating with t" leult she hat oommittad in treating with the ca and will annul the contracts made with these specula tors in human flesh, who have, aa yet, tailed to fnlfii the conditions imposed. ? If. 0. Courier, March S. City IntiillpiiM. Board Of Amiitart Aedrrmbr.?Thera will be a meeting of the Boanl of Asiiatants thia evening. Tha principal subject likely to occupy tha attantioa of tha Board, will aoit probably be, certain alleged graaa abu se ? in the Alma House Department. Surd**.?Yesterday was one of the finest specimens of spring weather that it has agar been our lot to seo.? The air was mild and balmy- and it waa almost too pleasant, even to go church, The streets were thronged, however, about church hours, and the houses ol wor ship were well attended. Breabiru cr or Wirtss.?There la now every ap Carance of old winter having broken up his reign and ten his departure for the season. For several |months he has governed us with his iron rod, and now ho ia about leaving the world's pathway, and making room for the entrance of the beautiful goddess of Spring, who will light up her path with smiles of sunshine, and strew it with l rag rant flowers. The buds and leaves are be ginning to oome out on the trees, and the grass is spring ing up wherever our city will allow grass to grow. The rivers are opening so as to admit of navigation; and be fore many days, all the marks of Winter will have left us, and Spring fairly have assumed her sway. Navigation.?The new steamboat Hudson, Capt. Chas H. King,will leave the foot of Courtlandt street, for Hud" son, this morning, the 16th inst., at 5 o'clock, connecting with the railroad from Hudson to Albany. The Stbkbts.?These are getting into quite a passa ble condition again. We are glad to.see the rough, hon est, old faces of the paving-stones, and welcome them back as dear friends after a long journey. A Mtstkbious Akkaib.?Could the dark veil which enshrouds the crime, poverty and misery agisting in our midst, be suddenly removed, what a fearful catalogue of human degradation, want and woe would be brought to light! The dwellers in gilded palaces and marble halls, who are clothed in purple and fine linen, and fare sump tuously every day?who press their beds of down, and sink peacefully to rest, wrapped in golden slumbers, little dream?perhaps they little care?for the sufferings of their less fortunate brethren Scarcely a week passes but seme tsde of misery comes to our ears, laden with

agonizing cries (or rehef. The heart sickens at the ex hibition of human frailty, and the hideous details of poverty and sin, which make the angels weep, and mor tals mourn. Yesterday a mother, almost heart-broken, came to the police office and informed the magistrates, in broken accents, that her daughter, Sarah A..11 ( laig, fourteen years of age, who had lately been employed in ti e family of Assistant Alderman Westervelt I nth street, 7th avenue, had been missing for about a week.? She was lest seen in company with a young man in 18th street, and it is feared there has been foul play in the mutter. This is a case which deserves investigation.? What a useless organization is our present police, when our children cannot leave their dwellings in safety ! St. Patbick's 1)av Next Tuesday is the anniversary of the immortal St. Patrick, and will be celebrated in this city, in a correct and appropriate manner, and with more than ordinary lealings of devotion and patriotism. The very Rev Dr. Power will preach at 8t. Patrick's. The Rev. Joseph P. Burke, pastor of St. Columba's church, will also preach there. The Hibernian Benevo lent Society, will walk in precession to St. Columba's church, where the Rev. Pastor, will preach in two lan guages?first in Irish and secondly in English. The Public School SocitTf ard the Tbdstees or the 14th Wash Schools.?It will be seen by a report of the proceedings of the Board of Education, in the he rald ol Thursday last, that a collision is likely to take place between the Public School Society and the trust ees and officers of the Ward Schools. It seems that one of the teachers ol the Fourteenth Ward Schools ex pressed a desire to the trustees to attend the normal school in the evenings. The trustees directed her to wait on the officer of the Public School Society, and re quest permission to attend: which she did, and was re fused, without any specific reason being given for the refused In consequence, a meeting of the Ward officers was called, and a memorial agreed upon, complaining of the Public School Society, and praying that the matter might be enquired into. The memorial was presented on Wednesday evening, upon which a special commit tee was appointed to investigate the charges, and report to the Board thereon. Attemt to Commit Suicide or Stater Island.? About half-past ten o'clock yesterday morning, Mi chael Tynan, residing at Factoryville, Staten Island, endeavored to put an end to his existence by cutting his throat with a razor. In order to effect his object secret ly, he went into his barn, where he was found in a short time afterwards weltering in his gore. He had inflicted a wound aoout three inches in length, but fortunately for the unhappy man, the trachea and caroted artery were but slightly penetrated; (and from the immediate attendance ot Dr. Clarke, who judiciously dressed the wound, there is some hopes of his reoovery. Tynan has been a resident of Staten Island for many years, is in very comfortable circumstances, and has ever Dome the reputation of an industrious and honest man. It appears this Is the second attempt to commit suicide in the same manner, and the only cause to which thia ranhness can be attributed, is mental derangement. Rev. J.jN. Maffitt?Will commence a ministerial engagement in this city, in a few weeks, and continue some time here. Saved from Drowriro.?We learn from the best au thority, that Mr. John Scott, the second officer of the packet ship Havre, saved the man, James Harrison, fnm drowning in the Albany Basin, on Friday night. We state this as an act of justice to Mr. Scott, who bravely risked his own life to save that of a fellow being. Cororeb's Office.?Sudden Deal A.?The Coroner held an inquest on Saturday, at No. 276 Henry street, on the body ol Mary Ann Bull, wife of Henry Bull, born in Newport, Rhode Island, 49 years of age. Mrs. Bull, it appear*, had been complaining lor some little time past, of a faintness and palpitation ol the heart. The jury re turned a verdict, that Mrs. Bull came to her death by congestion of the lungs. Death from Intemperance. The Coroner likewise held an inquest yesterday, at the Alms House, on the body of John Schofield, born in Ireland, and 60 years of age This old man, it appears, arrived a few days ago, in the ship Pacific, from Liverpool, and drank so much of the cheap rum on his arrival, as ultimately to cause his death. Verdict accordingly. Folic* Intelligence. March 16.?Hog Thirvtt ?Adam Richler, Louis Key*, end John D. Bope, *11 Dutchmen, were erreited early yesterday morning, by policemen Kerr, Robinson and Brenuen, of the 19th ward. These three chap* were driving a lot of live hops up the Bloomingdale ro ad, and being so early in the morning, naturally raised the sus picions of the officers; consequently tney brought the three Dutchmen, bogs and all, to the station house; and sure such a scene was never witnessed: the Dutchmen gruntiug, and the hogs squealing. The suspicions of the officers proved correct, for in the course of the af ternoon eight of the hogs were identified by Patrick Pendergrats, residing at 18th street, 10th avenue, they having neen stolen from his pig pen the night previous, and valued at $40. Committed by Justice Roome, for examination. The " Grab" Game.?Mary Murphy, alias Dublin Moll, a notorious Fire Point thief, was arrested last night. It appears that Moll was quite smitten with a jolly looking sailor, by the aame oi Bill Harrison, in one of the groggeries on the Five Points, when Moll, after he and her taking drinks together, said, "Bill, what time is it by your watch?"

Committed lor trial by Justice Osborne Burglary.?On Satuiday night, the 3d story room in the building called Columbian Hall, No. 965 Orand at., belonging to Mr. Isaac Brown, the ex-hack inspector, was broken open with a chisel, two trunks in the room forced, and robbed of a gold ring, set with a ruby stone, and a gold miniature case. This makes the se cond time these premises have been burglariously en tered within the last week. These "cracksmen" had better be careful how they fool their time with Mr. Brown, for he's a desperate man lor them to deal with.? So look out, my covies.

Robbed in the Station Houee ?Thomas Hulet asked permissiou to lodge in the 5th ward station house, last night, when, on waking up in the morning, he found, to his utter surprise, that his pockets had been cleaned out of all the smaU chupge be had in them when he laid down to rest.

Correction?In noticing the arrest of two thieve* in yesterday's Herald, tot the robbery of Mrs. Dominick, No. 04 Crosby street, of a gold watch, and sundiy arti cles of jewelry, we are informed by Mr. Rooney that ' only the gold watch was found in his possession, and ; that be did not purchase the watch from these thieves, but only loaneo to them $10, and held the watch as col lateral security until repaid. Mr. Rooney keeps a por ter-house, and not a " fence." He further assures us that he does not nor will he purchase any stolen pro perty.

Locked up by Justice Roome, for trial at the Special Sessions on Tues : day next. Tmi Army of Occupation.?We understand the army under General 1 aylor? was to break up ite position at Corpus Christi, leaving only a hospital, he., behind it. It was to advance on the 1st instant, and the time was afterwards postponed to the Oth, towards the Rio Grand*. It would probably take it* first post at I Point Isabel, some distance from the river, and near the ' gulf, and afterwards advance and take post on the river ' itself. The position, however, was left very much to the General's discretion, and it might advance up the river nearer th* vicinity of Matamonu, and perhaps higher,according to circumstances. ? tVaohington Union, March IS. Th? Lake Navigation.?Great preparations are making at Buffalo, Erie, Cleveland, Detroit, Chicago i and MUwaukie, for a busy season on the lakes. New steamboats, new schooners, and new propeller* are , building. Th* old ones are being repaired, enlarged and beautified, to correspond to th* improvempnt* of the day. Both capital and enterprise seem abundantly active to accommodate the business and travel of th* coming season with greater fiacilites.and at leas expense, than ever before.

Alsarv, March II, 1146. ?ffnti-Rtntirm?LtgitUtivt JVeosefffngt?7%* River, ft. We have teen that the Senate of thii State haa taken a poeition open the queition of leasehold e eta tea. The Senate ia divided upon the ieaue; Joahna A Spencer map be regarded aa the Uluatrioua advocate of the claima of the Patroon. One diruion, headed bjr him, ia utterly and nncompromiaingly oppoaed to the propoaition to al low the tenantry to aet ap a want of tittle on the part of the Van Renaaaleara. The other diviaion ia anxious to comply with the demanda of the tenanta, and it haa, through Senator Wright, after an express inveatigation> pre a en ted three billa, (mentioned yeaterday.) for the consideration of the Senate, embodying the various pro poaitiona, and suggesting a judicious remedy lor the re lief of the tenantry. Theae billa were merely preaented yeaterday, without a report from the committee; they were not permitted to be formally introduced. This morning. Senator Johnaon offered a revolution for refer ring theae billa back to the committee, and inatractinz the committee to make a written report to the Senate. The revolution waa negatived by a vote of 11 to 14. Be nator,Wright thenaaked loavo to introduce the bill JKh out the report; the question waa on granting leave, and one of the moat peculiar and modarn discussions ensued upon the propoaition, I ever liatened to During the de bate, a conciliatory aubatitute to the above resolution waa offered by by Mr. Talcott, and it waa loat by a vmL lar vote. The tendency of thia propoaition to reier the bill back to the committee, would be to delay pro. ceediugs; and-the object waa undoubtedly to defer, and probably to prevent any action by thia Legialature. Af ter a very exciting debate, the permission eaked by Se nator Wrigbt to introduce the bills waa granted ; alter a second reading, they were made the special order for Tuesday, the 24th inst., their consideration to be perpe tual, until they are Anally passed or rejected. If the act concerning tenures ia passed by the Legislature, it will be seen that the tenanta will have power to declare { that the Patroon haa no right or title to thia domain ; I it will virtually recognise the validity of the title of tho tenanta, for the time being, and will exempt thom from ; the payment of all rents and tributes, while the great question is pending in a court of law. if a civil court shall Anally have jurisdiction over this great question of title, probably all the distinguished legal talent in the country will be retained by the several litigants. From a careml appreciation of the minutest denotation of the countenances of Senators when vital points are at iaeue, and from a atrict note of their conduct at proper times, I have concluded that thia moat important and most Judi cious bill,kauthorixing the tenanta to aet up a want of title by landlords,pud prohibiting the creation of leases in future for a longer period than tifteen years, will paaa the Senate and the House 1 also think that the bill to abolish distress forffhnt will paaa. This will totally an nihilate the present system of leasing and conveying real estate in New York ; it will have a great effect upon all property qualiAcation. Indeed, as a precedent, it will be clearly a revolutionary measure. Mr. Taicqtt reported against the bill to appoint com missioners to settle the affairs of the Bank of Rochester: the committee stated in their report that the Board of Directors of this Bank had jurisdiction over affairs of this nature; the report was tabled. The House agreed to take the question upon the ap portionment bill to-morrow at 1-2 M The House was in committee nearly the whole day upon the bills to re duce the fare on certain railroads ; no action was had. Rain has been falling all day; the river ia swollen, and the ice disappearing very fest. The various craft are making ready for the spring navigation, and the age of energy and businesa is j ust opening. As tbis anti-rent question has arrived at a crisis, and as it is a matter of tremendous importance, I propose, in some future letters, without reference to the opinion of any citixen, and with that natural liberty with which God has endowed me, to send you a running glance at the position oi the Patroon -the proceeds oi the domain, and how expended?the occasion of the opposition in the Legislature to the claims of the tenants?"the distress ana anguish of the tenants" (a term used by Spencer, to day)?the investigating committaa? the effect, whether for or adverse to the tenantry, of the settlement of tho difficulty?the probable political inAuenoe of the tenant ry over a court of law, he., Ac., See. , Baliimobe, March 1ft, 1840. ^ Clty'f Oregon-Maryland Representa tive.-The A ew York Herald and tk.

The movements recently noticed in Morris Canal have had a vary good effect on tho atock, as will bo sesn by the advance. There are, however, strong efforts be ing made by the bears, to koop down the market price o( the stock. The money market, for some little time past, has been comparatively eaay, but it is now steadily tightening, ss the demand for money for the purchase of foreign ex change and for the payment of duties at the Custom House, has been quite large, and must increase as the season advances. The duties paid the past week,amount ed to nearly nine hundred and fifty thousand dollars, and for the present week will not fall far short of tha same amount This will probably be tho heaviest month for duties in the whole twelve, and the revenue from customs cannot be much less then three millions of dollars, at this port alone, for the month. Thiagemoant la drawn from the commercial classes, and, to a certain extent, reduces their reaources, and limits their capital. It goes into the deposit banks of this and other cities, and is used by these institutions in affording facilities to that class of operators and speculators requiring abort loans, on demand, which can be called in at any moment The deposit banks do not discount long, or even short business paper, on the strength of the government de posits; as transfers are so frequently made of tho publi money by the Secretary of the Treasury, thay might bo pressed and embarrassed. They therefore prefer making loans to brokars| and other*, on demand, on stock secu rity, subject to immediate call. The money market I consequently tightened, when a demand exists tor the payment of duties into the Cnstom-House. A demand for remittance to Europe, has the most material effect upon the money market, and that demand is likely to be exceedingly large by the next eteamer. The value ot merchandise ? principally foreign manu factures*? imported into this port, within tho past three weeks, cannot be much short of ten million of dollar*, or according to onr estimate, about ona-sixtk of tha aggregate importation into this market for tha year. A large portion of these goods have to b* paid for immediately, whether imported on foreign or domes, tic account. Within the past two weeks there havq been very extensive sales of merchandise, recently I ported, and owned on the other side, by auction. Ad vancaa are required on those goods, for the purpose o making remittances, and a vary large amount is fre quently remitted before the goods are brought into market. In anticipation of the demand for aterling exchangi the recent heavy importation* will create, the ratei have already advanced from 8 a 8| to 9 perjsent pre aium, and firm at the improvement. An extenaive de maud for exchange, and a tightneaa in the money mai ket, will carry the rate (till higher, and it would not am priae ua to aee the premium cloae up to the apecie-ahi[ ping point At thi* time laat year, prime billa on Lot don wete telling at 9^ per cent premium, and eoo after to 10 and above.
