NEW YOKE HERALD. r?rw York Friday, April 10, II4S. The Weekly Herald. This publication for this week will contain a summary <1 all the foreign and congressional news, up to the moment o( issue The illustration of this number will be a very hu morous one, and a capital hit at ihe politicians, and ?treet-sweepers of the day, reapeding the ocming charter election It is decidedly one of the happi eat engravings we have yet given It will be ready to-morrow morning at 8 o'clock, price six pence, with or without a wrapper. The Strain Ship rnleorn. This steam ship has now been at sea nearly twenty-two days. Notwithstanding her anticipated stop of thirty-sue hours at Halifax, this is a very long passage. The Northumberland packet ship sailed from Portsmouth ou the 9tn ult., and off the Lizird on the 15 h, and arrived here early on Wednesday last. As the Unicorn was to have left Liverpool on the 19ih, the Northumberland has fairly beaten the steamer in crossing the Atlantic, the difference of distance to Boston and New York taken into con sideration. Ths express arranged to bring the news by the Unicorn, may be ready to bring that to come in the Caledonia, now six days at sea. The Great Western leaves Liverpool to-morrow noon, for New York *ews by the Queen of the West. The packet ehip Queen of the Weet, from Liter pool, wae announced below last night. She may Drtng one or two or more daya later newe. Tin^Stock Panic?The excitement in Wall etreet hae reached fever heat. Within the paat few days there has been a perfect panic among the bulls, and we expect to see an explosion in that neighbor h >od fully equal to the great saltpetre blow up of las, summer. So far,the bulls have stood the immense de e me in fancies well, but they must be getting weak, b >me lame ducks have already waddled out of the street, and more must soon follow ; while, on the o her hand several speculators who exploded during the Just panic, have come up as good as new, and. taken their stand among the big bugs of the board. 1 According to the calculations of some of the used I up b ills, ihe country will be totally ruined in abou. four weeks. This will give us time to get the news from Europe by the packet of the 19th of April, but it will b: of little use, as we shall have so little ume after to make any use of it. We have, however, some hope that the predictions of these speculators may not be verified; that some favorable movement , may be made to prevent such an unfortunate result. 11 the meantime we would advise speculators of all kinds to watch and pray. lbs Charter Kle? tion? Wore Corruption GuaianlJedto the People. The conduct that has marked the leaders and 1 thinkers of the whigs and natives, in their prelimi nary arrangements for the coming charter election, cannot be too severely censured and condemned by til honest and independent men in the community, and particularly by those of our citizens who have felt and suffered by the ruinous extravagance and waste of the public moneys that has characteri sed ike present Corporation, sines the day ihey were unfortunately put in office. 1 nere never was a parry in power in this city, so wilfully regardless of the public weal-so shameful ly coriu.it, and so perfectly devoid of all sense of common decency and common honesty, as the par ty that have fed and fattened at the city treasury, for a year nast-a party that, before their election, made the most 6olemn pledges and piotmsesof re form and retrenchment; and a party that, the day after their election, commenced a race of extrava grnce iind wilful wastefulness that has completely eclipsed all other administrations, whether whig, 1 icotoco, or native, and reflected a damnable dis grace on themselves, that can never be removed, i Tins party came into power under the cry of re trenchment and reform; and were elected by a con- ? fiding leople, for the purpose of correcting abuses 1 that had marked our city government for a number ycara past, and of introducing economy into the city expenditures, and accountability on the i pan of the public officers, so that the enormous sums of money that had been wrung from our citi zens, in the shape of taxes, might be lessened, ! while at the same time the city government could be carried on efficiently. The manner in which they have disregarded their promises is well known; ! the fact thai the taxes have been heavier than under ?ny other administration, since tie date of the ciiy , charier, proves it. As might be expected, the disgraceful manner in which they lost sitht ol the promises they gave be fore iheir election, and iheir perfect disregard of the wuhes of their constituents, coupled wuh their profligacy and corruption, created a wide-spread diisatiafaction among all parties, snd a determina tion to make them walk the plank this spring, aud vacate the offices which they have so unworthily filled, and so mui h disgraced. This dissatisfaction was general, and we never saw a more determined feeling among all parties, than there was thia spring, to hnrl out the present party, and to unite in elect ing honest and honorable men, who would be a credit to the city, and who would pay boiqc respect to the desires of our citizens, so often expressed, and so often denied. All that was needed to carry out this desirable object, snd to kick the present corrupt incumbents out of the council chamber, was proper management by the leading and think ing men of the native and whig parties, and a union between them, formed and perfected, by which some of the best men ol both would be pat forward. If such a union had been formed, and men of cha racter and integrity, and who were known to the people as worthy of confidence, had been selected an J put forth, the fate of the present party in power, would have been sealed, and sqme hope raised, that the oft-demanded measures of reform would have been carried out. But ihe opportunity was neglect ed, and a heavy responsibility is attached to those men who, by their botchery and mi-management, will entail on our citizens another year of corrupt misrsle. We are constrained to impute to Mr Justice Tay lor a share in bringing about this unfortunate state of things. When he received the nomination of the native party, he wrote an equivocal letter to the nominating committee, which meant any thing or nothing, and which was interpreted by the commit tee as a refusal of the nomination. The natives then turned round and nominated Mr. Cozzens,who accepted ihe nomination immediately, and who, in nil probability, will receive the votes of that party ? The whigs then nominated Justice Taylor as their candidate, and he immediately accepted. Now, if Justice Taylor had openly and at once accepted the nomination by the natives, m the fimt place, it would not have ailecied hi. nomination by the whigs in the least, and he would receive tae votes of both parties; but on account of being badly ad vis. ed by hia friends, or from some other cau.e, he dic tated the letter referred to, and insulted the' native pnrty, whose strength, thrown sway as it will be on Mr. Cozzeos, will be sufficient to defeat him and Mr. Coaena also, and secure the election of the Tammany Hall candidate. By this distracted condition of things, the hopes and desires ol the respectable portion of the com munity have been blasted, snd an opportunity more favorable lor obtaining the long wished for reform in our municipal allure, than was ever before pre vented, allowed to pats by, and a continuance of profligacy and corruption entailed on (he city for .richer long year. If the democratic party had de voted themselves to bringing abent such a state of things a. now exists, they could not have succeed ed better than the leaders and Hunkers of the other two parties have succeeded in doing it for th-m Wbai is the use of these hlnnderera calling meet ingt to confirm the nomination# of the men whose prospects of election they themselves hava destroy ed 1 What ta the u?e of their speechifying, and call ing upon the citizena to unite and vote for their can* didatea, when they themselves, by their unfortunate tinkering and mismanagement, have created dis union, and frittered away their forcea, eo aa to en aure the election of their opponents 1 Aa they have eowed, an will they reap. We have never seen a more bungling piece of bu siness than thia. At the very time when union and unanimity were all that were requisite, to ensure triumph over the corrupt party in power, the leaders and directors created a state of things that will en sure the defeat of their own men, and the election of their opponent!. It would not have been of much consequence, had they acted in this foolish 'manner at any previous election; but t'- ta year, when the people were loud in denouncing the loeofoco politicians, and required but good men to be presented and they would be elected, to act in this manner was the height of follv and imprudence. We sincerely.hope they will have reason to repent , of their imprudence, aa they certainly will; for any hope of reformation in the democratic party ia for- ; lorn. So, let the people prepare next year fo? higher taxes?dirtier etreeta?mora extravagance wider watte. The whiga and their candidates are the beat friends of the loeofneoa. Oregon ?The newi from England, received by j the packet ahip Northumberland, and published at , length in yesterdny'a Herald, in anything but en- , oouraging for a speedy settlement of the Oregon question. The impression on the public mind there, created by the passage of the notice dissolving the joint occupancy of the territory in dispute, by the House of Representatives, and our refusal to arbl- j trate, is decidedlv hostile, and well calculated to alarm the peaceably disposed people of both coun tries. The press look upon both of these measures aa an attempt en our part to coerce Great Britain into a surrender of what she considers her just rights; but they say that snch attempts will fail, be cause the government is determined not to give up their claim to the territory north of 49 This dis proves the -asertion made by Mr. Webster, in the Senate, a short time since, end gives a more serious aspect to thia troublesome question than it has yet assumed. With England asserting her claim to a portion of the territory which our government will not concede, we cannot see anything but an issue which, sooner or later, will result in a war between the two countries. The news by the Un corn will be highly important and interesting, and will have the effect of inciting Congress to take a determined stand, one way at the other, soon. Mexico ?Our affairs with this country are coming ; to an issue rapidly, and unless a new revolution i break out there, we may look for something decisive, j very soon. It appears that the Mexican General is on his way j to the Rio Bravo, to keep an eye upon General Tay lor The truth of the matter is, the Mexicans are ! beginning to think that we are afraid of them; and j we would not be surprised ii the next news from j there would bring us intelligence of the Mexicans i attacking one of General Taylor's outposts, and kill- i ing a few of the American soldiers. This would be the best step they could take for a settlement of all our difficulties; and it would stir up our govern ment to equip an army of 80,000 Western boys, to march into the heart of their country, and have a settlement of all old balances at once, or submit to a hearty drubbing, and then be annexed. Mr. Webster's Speech.?The speech delivered by Mr. Webster recently, in the Senate, is the best thing of the kind that has been heard for fifty years. He calls every thing by its proper name. A spade, a spade?a thing, a thing?and a scoundrel, a scoun drel. He makes no use of the fine convention alisms of modern times; but speaks the mother tongue, as it was spoken two or three hundred years ago, in the times ol Shakspeare and Chaucer. The effect ol his speech w.it none the less powerful on that account. Quite a revolution in literature. National Medical Convention ?The meeting of the various delegates from the medical schools and societies throughout the Union, that is to take place in this city duriog the coming month, fur the purpose of raising the standard of medical educa tion, will be of considerable interest to the profes sion, both here and throughout all the States. We are tf opinion that they will not, after a 1, do much. The standard of medical knowledge that is required from those set-king to enter into the ranks of the profession, may or may not be sufficient; but be that as it may, we do not think that the calling of a convention will assist it much, either way. Things cannot be regulated, in scientific matters, on the same principle that the working? of a political party can be carried on by means of meetings at Tamma ny Hall or National Hall; and the idea of a number of people getting together and saying, "in future, we will have nothing but splendid surg^pns or physicians," is a perfect absurdity. Apart from the consideration, that sven with the present system of education. American practitioners stand as high as those in any other country?even apart from this, aud supposing the contrary state of things existed,no convedtion could ever remedy it. The principles that regulate the advance of science, are exactly opposite to those that carried out in our republican government ; in it, the many elect their ruler, and dictate to him what they wish done; but in science, the individual it is who rises above, and leads the crowd?the individual etlorts of medical men it is, that will raise the standard of medical knowledge in this country; and their example will cause hundreds to follow in their path, on whom all the laws that a convention could ever frame, would never have had the slightest effect. This fact is to be seen, not only in the medical profes sion, but also in other things?for instance, in paint ing and the fine arts. The appearance of one fine painter or scaiptor, has always been followed by several more; so, again, in another branch of what m*y be termed literature, vix: newspapers?see what the force of individual enterprise and success has done! what a complete raising of the standard of newspaper tactics hat been caused by the career of the Herald ! Bat we could neither have good painters, or good sculptors; nor could we have hid energetic newspapers, by merely calling conven tions, and making lawa that they should ex'st, and that nothing mediocre would be allowed. It ia the fate of all professions to be encumbered with dull members; for all men cannot be alike great. The great surgeon, or painter, or sculptor, may be said to be natcitur non fit; and all ol them find their level very toon. The profession of medicine in this country, as we : said before, stands as well, and is ss successful in its treatment of diseaae?nay, perhaps, even more so, than the profession in any of the European coun tries. This is sll that is required. If they were in euch a situation aa to require the aid of medical mea from foreign countries io cure the various diseases of their own, then, indeed, something might be said about making laws to enforce in every one the elements of greatness The fact is, if this system of determining every thing by means of a convention goes much farther, we should not be surprised to see physicians laying their patienta' cases before conventions, aa well as lawyers their client* causes. There are, however, many things which the Con vention, when they have met, will do well to consi der?such as the legislative protection afforded to the profession, the system ot licensing now pursued by the medical societies, flee , which will give them lull enough to do,without endeavoring to make laws that shall bring lonh ready made Rushes or Motta, or any other similar eminent men. And, moreover, let them endeavor to inculcate on the members of the profession the keeping up of a bnttr fc? ling among themselves, rather than to endeavor to form themselves into separate digits*, as they now do. Vwjr Uto CroM China. The fait sailing clipper ship Montaok, Captain McMtchael, arrived last evening from Macao, in the remarkably shoit passage of eighty seven days. She made the run from Macao to the Cape of Good Hope in forty-two days?probab'y the quickest time oo record. We are informed by Captain McM , that the com mercial treaty between the United States Govern ment and the Ce.estial Empire, had been ratified on the 29th of December, by the Chinese Commis sioners and Commodore Biddle. The files of the Hong Kong Mail and Friend which we have thus received, make'no mention of the fact. The U. S. ship Columbus, Commodore Biddle, was at Macao on the Uth Jan. U. S. sloop of war Vincennes, Captain Paulding, arrived out on the 9ih- Ship Rainbow, had not ar rived out. The piratical attacks upon foreign vessels in the Chinese waters have again become frequent, for the suppression of which it is touod necessary to employ Urge gun boats. Two or three ot ibem are I? be permanently stationed in the Symoon passnire. In relation to th-se attacks, the Keaister of the 6th says: "On Su iday mormag, some China men dis covered a dead body floating in the Lyemoon, and gave information ot the circumstance to the police, who went out, and found it to be a European, who had three fingers ot his right hand cut oiT. and vari ous marks ot violence about the face and neck. He was afterwards recognis-d as a seaman, who waa missed trom the Jfincurt on Christmas eve, and was believed to have fallen overboard The marks of violence would seem tojustily a wtme construe- | tiou, but as yet we believe nothiag has transpired, i to point suspicion against any parties." On the evening of the 1st December, an amateur partv ot actors performed at A-kwei'a premises in the lower Bazaar. A respectable party attended, and were much gratified by the exhibition. A sub- , scripuon paper is in circulation for erecting* prema nent building in a more central position, which may also serve lor public meetings ot the inhabitants, balls, See.

The Chamber op Comxsrcb and the Whole Wohld ?The respectable old gentlemen who com pose the so-called Chamber ol Commerce in this city, are the moat uneasy set of old chape we ever i heard of. There ie not a matter connected with the subject of commerce, that they will not ap- i propriate :o themselves, discuss it, and issue bulle tins to the world, with their opinions concerning it. Their conduct recalls to our mind something we saw some years ego, in a town somewhere in Eu rope. A respectable old gentleman, who a as well qualified to belong to this great board, went into the | street each day. at noon, and kept turning his hand for a longtime, as if he were winding up a clock. On being asked what he was about, he replied that he was winding up the sun, and if he did not do it? it would run down, and the world come to an end. So it is with the Board of Commerce?they have got hold of Ce pilot laws, and are winding up the tun. They have issued their bulletin, #aad gay there must be competition in the pilotage busi' ness, in older to have it faithfully performed. The fact is, the ridiculous law of 1887'throws the pilotage business of this port open to every loaler and ragamuffin in the whole world, who chooses to engage in it; and the consequence has been that men without any qualification, have entered the field, to compete with the old pilots,who have served an apprenticeship to the business, and were obliged to go through the ordeal of a critical examination before they received their licenses. As long ss mankind continues to be cast in the same mould that has been used since the time of the patriarch Adam, there will be competition in every business, among the regular followers of that business. What good effect can flow from admitting a set of tinkers into competition with journeymen printers'! Tinker ing and botchery would certainly follow. The same result has followed the competition among the pilots, under the present law of Congress. Let Congress abolish that absurd law, and it will be iounu that the State of New York is capable of regulating the pilotage of this city. Connecticut Election.?Complete returns have been received from all the towns in the State but three, and the vote for Governor stands as follows: Toucey Dim. Biitll. Whig. Sealtiring. fe.lM M.7W ITS Tot. I. M.iM Whir plaralitr, Jit The three towns to be heard from cannot materi ally aflect the result. As the people have failed to elect a Governor, that duty will devolve upon the Legislature, and there appears to be very* little doubt but the democrats will have majorities in both branches. The State Senate is composed of 21 members; of these the democrats have elected 11, 'he whig* 9, and one district not yet ascertain ed. In the House the democrats have 102 mem bers, the whigs 76, no choice 87, and three towns to hear from. The Lieutenant Governor is ex-offirio president of tho Senate, and in case of a tie, has a casting vote. His somewhat singular, that at the very juncture when New Hampshire haa left the ranks nt the ad ministration, the strong whig State of Connecticut should wheel into its support. Such political evolu tions are not, however, novelties in our history. A few years more and a regular exchange ot States may take placa between the two great parties? Massachusetts, for instance, become radical, and Illinois conservative! States, as well as individuals, it Menu, know how to turn thetrcoata?there in no snch thing as invariable consistency; but, accotduig to Boaiou, there is such a thing as committing a murder while in a state of somnambu.ism.

The Southampton steamers are hereafter to touch at this Island Instead of Bar badoes, and will then proceed to Nassau, N P, Havana and Mexico, and back the seme route to England. There is no other news of any moment.
