NEW YORK HERALD. New York, Thursday, March SO, 1840. Agents In the Interior. Michael Tucasa ia the agent for the Nrw Vork Daily and IViekly Herald, in Poughkeepeie, N. V. The Trial of Tlrrell. We give on our first page, a report of the firtj day's proceedings of the trial ofTirrell, for the mur der of Maria Ann Bickford, at Boston, which caused such a great sensation some time since. It is our intention to give a full and graphic ac count of each day's proceedings, and the latest intel ligence of this trial, to the last moment. This ex- i traordinary case.has a striking resemblance, in its details, to the Ellen Jewett murder, in Now York, I some years back, and has caused near'y as much excitement in Boston, as that murder dtd in this city. It is said the counsel for Tirrell intend to prove that the unfortunate girl committed suicide. Htate of the American Newspaper Press?Its Enterprise, The great commotion caused among the different journals in this city, and throughout the country, on the arrival of every Bteamer and packet ship from Europe, is characteristic of journalism at the pre - sent day. The system of running expresses, in order to obtain late news at the earliest moment possiLle, has been but lately introduced into the United States, and now may be said to form a part of the newspaper business. These ?xpressea were the consequence of the revolution in journalism that was brought about by the independent press, about ten years since, in this city, and has been continued from that time until the present day. Before the era of the independent press, the old fashioned six penny papers had a monopoly of jour nalism on this continent, and conducted their busi ness with the smallest outlay possible. News, no matter how important soever it might be, was not published until the vessel had reached and been made fast to the dock. In fact, the accommodation of the public was never thought of, and the little benefit derived from the journals of that time, had to be paid for at an extravagant rate. Aa soon as the independent press entered on the field, and so licited a portion of public patronage, a decided difference between those of the old regime [and those of the new, was apparent to all. The latter brought into requisition an amount of enterprise and peraeverance never before known in thia country, and which took by surprise the public, as well as thfe editors of the old papers. The effect of this was immediately seen in the immense support given to the new papers, and a corresponding re duction in the circulation of the old ones. In a day, as it were, a revolution was accomplished in journalism in this country, which is going on, gathering strength as it proceeds, till in a few more years, the whole field will be clear of the old fash ioned and lazy sixpenny, and will be occup:ed by the cheap, independent press. A great improvement in the old fashioned journals is also apparent, and a greater regard ia paid to the public than was ever before^een. The ceriou^inroads on their subscription lists by the independent press, roused them up from the state of inertia and imbe cility they had been in lor a long time; and they had, in self defence, to follow the lead of the indepen dent press, and bring into use a portion of that enter prise which marked the career of their opponents Still, however, they were beaten by the indepen dent press in every description of enterprise, find particularly by the Herald, in running .express"a with late European news, at an enormous expens", and tending it over the whole country from eigh teen to twenty-four hours ahead of them. The Herald was the first paper to commence thia great snterpriae, and our subscription list satisfactorily assures us, that our efforts to serve the public have been appreciated. The extraordinary success that has attended our exertions, as might naturally be expected, created a great amount of envy and jealousy in our rivals, and compelled them, after they had resorted to every other means to crush us, to follow in the track that we had laid out. Accordingly, they have recently made a few efforts to compete with us in this de scription of enterprise. They did not, however, meet us in a fair competition, but combined by dozens in five principal cities, with the intention of prostrating us, and with what success the public already is aware. Although we have now combin ed against us, an alliance numbering some sixteen papers, published in Boston, New York, Philadel phia, Baltimore and Washington, we are not to be frightened from our course; but on the contrary, we will continue our exertions in that, as well aa in every other respect, and do the utmost in our power for our subscribers, in return for the libera and unpre cedented patronage they have swarded us. These exertions we consider ourselves bound to continue, not only from motives of policy, but from pride too. We claim the honor of introducing this enterprise into journalism in the United States, and as long aa the Herald is in existence, we will continue it. II at any time we should he distanced in this buaineae, and the public should get foreign news, of conse quence, through the exertions of the Holy Alliance, ahead of the Herald, we ahall still claim the honor accruing from it; for were it not that the Herald introduced the system, the public would be to this day trusting to Uncle Sam's mail bag for the earliest intelligence, both foreign and domestic. We say at any time, for the best arrangements are likelyjo fail occasionally. With our fleet of newsclippers, manned by the hardiest men in existence, cruising always outside tae Hook, at distances varying from fifty to two hundred and fifty miles from land, failure in getting news in the speediest way possible may appear out of the question. But accidents will happen in the best regulated office. Political Abolitionism.?It is well known that the abolitionists of the North are at present divided into two opposing factions. The one is led by a philosopher called Garrison, and consists of the old women of both sexes, who are dissatisfied with all the existing arrangements of society, and are dream ing of run reforms in the future. This class which, particularly in the New England States, is a large one, eschew all political action, and intend to ac complish their end by what they call "revolution izing public sentiment,"ice. The other branch of the aboliuA party is the po litical abolitionists, or as they call themselves, the " liberty party." This faction separated some years ago from the main body, and since that time have been at sword's points with them They'are fol lowers of James G. Ilirney, who was run in 1844 as iheir'Presidential candidate. It is needless to deny the fact that in the Northern States this party is increasing in numbers. At the last Presidential election they polled, in this State alone, about 15,000 votes. Their leaders are gene rally ambitious, and many of them needy men, who have run the plank of the other parties, have been discarded by them, or failed to secuie their person al ends by longer remaining m them. In nearly, if not all the Northern States, this par ty has now an organization; and by wild appeal* to the ptejadieee of the Northern people, are draw.ng into their ranks many from the other ponies. The political principles of this party arc r-volu nonary and disorganizing in the extreme?probably involving, if carried out, a dissolution of our Union Disregarding the rights of property ceded to the South, they would, by superior force, endeavor to divest them of those rights, and thereby commence a turmoil, which would only end in bloodshed and civil war. With these fasta before us, it is not a time to rest in ease and quietude, suffering the whelp to grow into a strong beast. The press, that mighty engine of trne conservation, should speak out, end by the diffusion ?f facte and wholesome theories, nip in Ihe Nld this ditorgantstng element Liverpool Pocket Skip Henry Cloy Jrtioro ?Ix or Blfbt Llvw Loot. The' packet ship Henry Clay, Capt. Nye, from Liverpool, from which port ahe sailedo n the 22d ol February, lor New York, went aahore on Tuesday night about twelve o'clock, on 8quan Beach, about one mile north ot the place where the John Minturn and other vessels were wrecked, on the night of the 15th of February. | The ship struck on the outer bar?heaved over, and lays between the under tow and outer bar, broadside to the beach, having heeled a little to- i wards the shore. All her masts were cut away at 8 o'clock on Wednesday morning, and she remained in an eesy position. A large part of the cargo has been thrown overboard, and it ia possible the hull may be prevented trom going to pieces, as it lays in a kind of quick sand, and was rapidly burying itself Immediately after the ship struck, three seamen went ashore in the life boat, with .1 line, and returned again to the vessel, but on account of the iloating spars, could rot get near enough to the ship to take efl the passengers, and they were compelled to drop themselves into the boat by the line. Eight or ten cabin passengers were taken on board in this way, and were proceeding towards the shore, when the boat was jtruck by a sea and shattered to pieces* and only two (the 2d mate and one saaman) were saved, ond they were taken on shore insensible, but by the care and attention ot those on shore, were brought to lite. The rest of the passengers and crew, numbering about three hundred, remained on board the ship, end as a hawser had been taken ashore and made fast bv driving a spile into the saud, it was supposed they all would be saved, as soon as the weather moderated. The keel had been broken off and tloated alongside, and the ship was muking a great deal of water. She went ashore at high tide, drawing eighteen ieet ol water,^nd had a very large and valuable cargo on board. On account of the thick weather experienced within the three days previous to going ashore, the Captain had not been able to get an observation, | and the first intimation of being near and, was when the ship struck the beach. | The weather, since .he ship went ashore, has not been at all favorable for the safety of those remain ing on board, or the cargo; La as she is a new vessel, built in this city, in the best possible manner, we have every hope that no more lives will be lost. The Henry Clay belonged to Gnnnell, Minturn ?te Co.'sline of Liverpool packets, was built by Messrs. Brown & Bell, in the early part of last year, and made her first voyage from this port to Liverpool in May. She was one of the largest and most magni ficent packets belonging to this port. Captain Nye, of the Henry Clay, is well known to ths public as the commander of the Independence for many years, in which ship he acquired the reputation of being one ol the most skilful packet Captains out of New York. He has heretofore been very for- ] tunate in all his voysges to and from Liverpool, and we are satisfied that every thing was done that man could do, to prevent such a melancholy affair as the loss of so many valuable lives, and the wreck of his fine ship. Tiik Spring Track?Pittsburgh and New York?The opposition of the Philadelphiana to the granting the right of way hy Pennsylvania to the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, has highly incensed the citizens of theWestern portion of that State?the Pittshurgiaus in particular. They allege that it is a paltry attempt to retain the trade of the Western merchants, end confine them to purchase their goods in Philadelphia All descriptions of threats are used, hrsides the dissolution of the Commonwealth, and tney are determined henceforth to abandon trad inn ia Philadelphia, and buy all their goods in New York. With that view they have inserted the following notice in their journals at Pittsburgh :? To New Yobbeb*.?Some of our respectable mer chant*. who have formerly purchased almost wholly in Philadelphia, have requested us to suggest to the mer chants of New York, that thay will find it to their ad- 1 vantage to visit this city or send on agents to form busi ness acquaintances. This hai^een the custom of Phi- I ladelphia for many year*, but a* our citizens now have i their attention turned towards New York, and are folly reiolved to withdraw their buaincss wholly from Phila delphia, New York merchants would do well to facili tate the formation of business acquaintance and connec tions. Will the New York papers notioe this matter 1 ! All we can say is, that the New York merchants will be happy to accommodate their Western breth ren, and we trust that the well known character of onr business men for honorable and fair dealing,will be a guaranty, that what bosiaess the Pittsburgians may transact in New York,will be transacted on the most accommodating terms, and with satisfaction to purchasers. New York at present ofTers advantages unequalled l>y any other city in the Union. The several packets that have arrived recently were all freighted with the richest end the handsomest goods, and the dis play of samples in our stores is the most varied and most beautiful we have ever seen. Come along, gen'lemen of Pittsburgh, and if we don't satisfy you of the truth of what we say, never give us j credit fo rthe truth again. The Heroes op the Revolution.?'One by one, the soldiers of the war of independence are falling into the silent repose of the tomb. The heroic men whose valor and fortitude have given the brightest ; pages to our national history, share the same earthly fate with the coward and the slave?the grave is alike the portion of them all; but there is a brighter luture for the patriot. Within the last month, no less than thirteen revo lutionary patriots have been summoned to another, and we trust a better world. To use the beautiful idea of Marshal Soult on the death of Bernadotte, thu drums of heaves are beating the trveillt for heroes to gather there, and obedience is yielded to the call. But a few years shall pass away, and every living relic of the " times that tried men's souls" will he gone. It is always melancholy to contem plate the death of any of our fellow-beings; but the departure from among us of those to whom we have long pointed as the pride of our country, is more than mournful?it is a source of general sorrow and afflic tion. Grim monster, thou art indeed terrible to us all? " But to tha hero, when hi* iword Ha* won tho battle for tbo free, Thy voico tounda like a prophet * word; And in it* hollow tono* aro heard Tho thank* of million* yet to bo." The gallaot men who have perilled their lives for our liberties may die, but they can never cease to be remembered with pride, while truth, courage and patriotism, are held to be virtues among men.

Mabch 33.?Tfuiianee Cut.?T7i? People ei. Robert Elder.?Thie ere* en indictment found egeinet the Butch era' Aeeocietion, for e nuie&nce. It appeared that in 1844, the Aeeocietion erected a furnace at the corner of 4th etreet and the let avenue, for melting tallow, f rom the emell and other oflenaive caueea produced by the pro ceee of melting, the neighbora and ownera of property became dissatisfied, and they laid theoaee before the (Jrand Jury, who lound a tiue bill. The caee came on yeaterday. Mr. Joaeph Blunt, on behalf of the people, opened the caee. He eaid thie wee one of thoae cases which ie important to the whole community?one deeply affecting the comfort and tranquility of the oitiseae in its effects upon their health and property, which would appear to the Jury, from the teatimony that would be laid before them; they would produce evidence to ahow the diecomforta, danger and pecuniary k>aa to the people in the neighborhood, and when any eatabllahment pro ducea theae effects, it waa a nuiaance ; but, happily, aaid Mr. Biunt, the principlea of our law ia, that the peo ple are protected by it ageinat nuiaancaa, and one or the very beat principlea of it, ia that it will not even allow a man to uae hie own property to the diacomfort of hia neighbora. Whenever that ia done, it ctepa in and directs its abatement. Mr. Blunt here laid down the law regard ing nuisances, and cited several authorities from American and English books, in support of bis view of the subject He aaid that when the neighbora found out that the Butchers' Association waa about to erect this establishment, they waited on them and remonstrated on the impropriety of erecting it, and the danger to the health, and the pecuniary loss that would result to the inhabitants from carrying on that trade; but they were met by a positive refusal, on the part of the Association, to deaiat. He made some further remarks, and concluded by stating that he would call witnesses to prove the na'ure of the nuisance and its effects upon the neighborhood. Amoogat other wit nesses examined was an old gentleman, named Joseph Koopman, who testified that when he first perceived the smell from the defendants' establishment, it seemed to him as if the whole neighborhood was boiling bad sau sages; and so dense waa the smell, (we suppose the wit ness meant vapor,) that it could be caught in handsfull every morning: he considered that as long as the smell or effluvia continues, there waa no danger that the yel low fever would ever make its appearance in the neigh borhood After the examination of about a dozen other witnesses, the case for the people was rested. The counsel for the defence applied to quash the indictment, on the ground that the allegation in the indictment waa not sustained by proof, the allegation being that the oiled smell waa produced by the melting of spoiled and un wholesome fat; whereas, thai a waa no proof but that the subatanoo malted was fresh and wholesome, sad, there fore, there waa a variance between the proof and the in dictment. Coust.?The substantial charge ia, that a noisome smell has been produced by melting fat?the noisome smell ta the nuisance, and not the melting of.the fat?it does not matter whether the smell, if it be noxious, ia created by the melting of,aound or unsound fat?the nui aanco is the same. The application was denied ,)and the case sent to the jury. Mr. Cuss opened the deienoe, and rested it upon the following grounds: first, that every man, or association of men, had a right to follow bis or th their own pursuits in any legal way that they might judge best for thoir own intoroet and advantage. Secondly, that the defendants were not guilty of the particular charge stated in the in dictment. Thirdly, that the business carried on in the establishment waa not unhealthy; on the contrary, they would prove that all the persona engaged in it enjoyed more than ordinary share of animal health; and, fourthly, that there were forty-eight slaughter houses in theward, and twenty-four of them in this neighborhood, against which no complaint was made ; and, fifthly, that the de fendants took every precaution to carry on the business with the least possible danger to the health and comfort of the inhabitants. Case of Colonel Thomas?Libel. Washington, March 33, 1846. CRIMINAL COURT. Before Judges Crench, Morseil and Dunlan United Slatet vs. Thomat?This important cause, be ing set down for this term of the Court; and, it being generally rumored that the trial was fixed for this day, the utmost anxiety was manifestod as to the probability ofita going on. It will be recollected, that the defendant ibttined has obtained considerable celebrity, from the fact of his connexion with e divorce case, involving a series of do mestic troubles and calamities, which have travelled the rounds of the press. In connexion with these family troubles, the defendant, it is alleged, published a pam phlet drawing into light a heavy catalogue of scandal and family gossip, involving Senator Benton, aeveral public men in Congress, and families of distinction in this vicinity, Maryland and Virginia. For this publica , tion, defendant waa indicted for libel, and the trial was ; set down for hearing in another court, when, in conse quonce of objections to the Judge, merely upon techni < cal grounds, the venue was changed, and the case was set down for tiial on the calendar of thia couit. i At 11 o'clock, the Justices took their seats upon the bench, when the March term of the court was formally ; opened. Mr. Jones hereupon applied to the court, and begged the postponement of the case of the Unites States vs. Thomas, which, by mutual consent, he stated, It waa agreed should be fixed for the 1st May next. The Cot"rt hereupon granted tbe application. The case waa accordingly postponed. 8ome*new accessions were made to the bar by the admission of some seven or eight qualified members, when, after the disposal of some routine businesi, the court adjourned. N.

The steps and general front outside, have the appearance of a con demned prison for the execution of convicts. As a pub lic buildiog, it is discreditable to the metropolis ; the frequent subject of ridicule to every looker on ; and, while appropriations are squandered for many idle pur poses, lor keeping the avenue in mud and filth, and pay-' ing idle loafeia for idling about it, without doing any be nefit, three-fourths the expenses would put a decent front to this public court, where justice ia administered almost weekly.

Moore.?This was on action brought to recover the amount of $87 60, for sundry articles of wearing apparel iurnished the de fendant tbe peat season. Tne plaintiff is a draper and tailor, doing business at 146 Broadway, corner of Liberty lade street; and, as appeared on the part of defence, certain overtures to one Edward Sherman, upon which he entered into a sort of partnership (no written agree ment was however made) with the plaintiff in this suit: at thia time ho was bqnrding at tho Croton Hotel, (or which the defendant was proprietor, and with whom an understanding was made, that Sherman's bill was to bo paid In clothing from thia joint establishment) Tho bill of Mr. Moore was at length mada out, and charged to Mr. Edward Sherman, ana a credit of this amount waa made to Mr. Moore, and hia account balanced. Subse quently to this, some misunderstanding occurred be tween Messrs. Dariy and Bharsaan, (who bad separate signs at the door) and tho clerk of Mr. Darly was told to make out another bill, and present it to Mr. Moore for payment, which, of course, was refused, inasmueh as that he had settled in full with Mr. Sherman, the only party known to him In this transaction, producing his receipt therefor. Upon the other hand, it .da maintained that Sherman was in no way interested in the profits or losses of tho establishment, and that ho was simply in the employ of the plaintiff' as his principal cutter.
