EW YORK HERALD. New lurk, Tutniay, April 14. 1**40. N?\vi from lCuro]ie. There appears lo be considerable anxiety for the safety of the Unicorn. She had not arrived at Halifax on the 5m mat., and it is u mitt-r of some doubt, when she will arrive there. It is now supposed that her news will reach Boston, by s me eailing vessel from Halifax, if the steamer should succeed in crossing the Atlantic. The Caledonia, with advices from Liverpool to the 4;li iu?t., is now in her tenth day, and may be expect <i next Sunday. UUo Annual Charter Election?The Annual ?Juggle. The annual juggle or political farce, usually de nominated an election, takes place this day in New York, the metropolis of the Union, and the most democratic city cf the whole world, between the rising of the sun over the swamps of Long Island, nnd the down ot the same sun on the hilia ot New Jersey. W'e tail this election, this annua! movement, this bustling and voting, this opening an 1 cl<. sirig ot polls, njugg'e, u larce, a humbug, in fe e, the most preposterous matter that can engage ;'cr li!? men on '.ne south side of the Lunatic At>y l ?:n ; ?md we believe wc are right in all these a; pollutions. iius city contains sixty thousand independent men, who have the right ot voting for the munici pal govt rnment. Out of this large number, proba bly titty thousand are sensible, disinterested and hsnest men, who are actuated by principles of inte grity, end engag-d in their own private busin ss.? 'iiieee fifty thousand only want a good, efficient, uud economical government for the metropolis, a government that will reduce the taxes, keep the streets clean, prevt nt rogues from pillaging and lurntng the city, and give us in all respects a go vernment us good as man can expect on this side of the r- gtons ,<f eternuy. Yet with these otherwise seusible men, numberiugfifty thousand voters,there are about ten thousand politicians, belonging to three cr four factious, whose preparatory move ments and midnight caucusisg, intriguing and elec tioneering, completely frustrate the desires and Wishes of the Ally thousand, and indict upon the people the worst government thut ever disgraced any city. This, therefore, is the solemn farce, the political juagle, the ridiculous humbug which is annually perlormed in reference to good governmen', econo mical taxes, aud to all that is required to render the industry of rociety safe, and beyond the reach of ; rogues und vagabonds. For the lust year, particularly and especially, the taxes have been increased beyond all precedent; the streets have been dirtier than formerly, and tho waste and extravagance of the taxes, alter being collected, have been wider and greater than ever. \ In the face of such conduct on the part of those who liaii been elected under the promise of reform and retrenchment, the people had formed a resolution to have a chance, and to iiersist in changing until they could get u set of good men, patriotic and intelligent, nnd who would fulfil their pledges. The fifty thousand sensible voters of all parties had come to this conclusion, but the ten thousand political hum bugs and intrigut rs, who manage all parties in the preparatory 'is* mblies, have woven such a mesh, such a web ot intrigue, juggle and humbug, as de stroys all hope of reform, and will give us a worse government than ever, for this year. One of the priaeipul juggles, in this multiplication of juggles, perpetrated on the honest people, is the juggle of the whics in bringing forward Mr. Robert Taylor as ih ir candidate for the Mayoralty, who had pre viously refused the nomination of a large portion of liis fellow-citizens. Tina juggle wiii undoubtedly elect the locoloco candidate for Mayor, and a loco foeo corporation. Ia that respect, we are left to draw the only inference that can be drawn, and that is, that it seems to have been the policy of the whigs, instead of seeking the influence of all good men, for a reform in the city expenditures, to inflict on the city locofoco dominion for another year. This seems to be the ouly sensible elucidation and explanation of their conduct on the occasion ; and tnere is every prosject that they will succeed to tneir nutria' content. We see, therefore, that thia anaual juggle, this anumi farce and piece of supreme humbug, wil[ tike place to-day. There are four parlies in the fi-ld, and lour candidates for Mayor, and any num ber ol candidates for Aldermen and Assistants. Tue multiplication ol candidates by the Small-beer palitician*, and intriguers of the different parties, renders it certain that the locotocos will succeed, and that, therefere, we will be at the tender mercies of the same extravagant men?that we will have the same wasteful extravagance, the same dirty streets, the same recklessness in public duties, that the poor deluded people of this city have suliered under for the last year. Hereafter, we think it would be better and safer for the great city of Mew York, if the fifty thousand honest voters were to enter into an annual contract with the keepers of the State prison, und get their civil government out of that place, instead of en deavoring to seek it from the hands of committees, and caucuses and cliques, that meet in beer cellars and club houses. We are not sure that a Mayor and corjairation, expressly imported from Sing Sing, would, from the habits they acquired there launch into such extravagance as the men we have generally in the corporation. With these lew remarks, we request all sensible people to go nnd partake of this juggle to-day?that is, the election of a municipal government tor this city, that will cxceed.tae last in waste and extrava gance. A New '?ot.tcx Jcitic*.?The present Common Council before going out of power, have the ap pointment of a Police Magistrate to fill the vacancy of Justice Gilbert, whose term of office expires about tne first of May.% In this appointment, we shall certainly expec* them to p'ace a man in that situation, of strong mind, sound judgment, and of good moral character. Therefore, we sincerely hope, that the man, whoso ever he may be, will be one of integrity and above reproach ; for, in the office of a Police Justice, they are liable to msny temptations, and such tempta tion* as a weak-minded man could not very easily overcome. Large sums of money are frequently left with them as evidence, which might be ex rhangrd, and thus the criminal escape punishment. Then, again, let us suppose a case for example ?? If a magistrate should associate himself with any ? fficer of one of the wards, and do up business to gelhe r in the private bureau?and as some consta bles are capable of receiving moneys for rewards n?d for services rendered, without having to pro cure permission from the Mayor, (they being ex ? mpt from the new police law)?consequently a very .irofltable business could be carried on in this wiy, vix the magistrate by placing the complaint ; ito his pocket, thus keeping the whole matter ? am the public press, whose duty it is to col et information for the people; while the constable wiuld execute the financiering part, and afterwards divide the spoils. We do not, by any meant, wish to be understood that turh proceedings are in practice at present, nor d.i we allude to Rny one. But we do say, that such m liters could be done by avaricious men?yes, men who are open to temptation. Therefore, ws say again, in mercy sake, let us have a good man, a morel man, and a man above suspicion, appointed.

Thk Lmuxr War Brrwm Park Brkjamin, i Mr. Lkotsr,> Mr. Powkrx?The amuang lite 1 raty war, of which we gave recently tome sample*, between Park Benjamin on the one part, and Chaa. E. Letter on the other, involving the position and opinions of Mr. Powers, the great American artist, is now waxing warmer and warmer, as the daya are getting longer and longer. In onr last notice of this | amutii g campaign, we ventured to predict that while Park Benjamin goT rid of one libel suit by making a apology, as in the case of Mr. Tusiatro, he was jjinpiug into a worse situation in tha case of Mr. Lester, as regards the aHurs of Mr. Powers. 1 This prediction has been verified to the letter We ! und r?tand that Mr. Lester has commenced two libel suit i against Mr. Tuylor, the publisher of the paper of which Park, Benjamin is editor. Theae suits have not been entered against Park Benjamin, because he is considered to be an irresponsible per son, in the sight of man or of woman, of heaven, or of the other place. This is a species of immunity which is cheap, and must be a great gratification to the conductor of a popular newspaper. Park Ben jamin, however, comes again to the charge against Lester, and persists in asserting that ins book, apd all in it contained, is not warranted by Mr. Powers, who has written a letter to this country, in which he denies every thing Lester has said concerning him. In his last paper he gives the following admi rable piece of evidence:? Washinotox Cirv, March 31,1846. Park Esq. Dkar 9ih I have read your ttpnie of the Imposture of C. Edwarde Letter,g? he pseudo-bijgrspher of Hiram Powere. I lived in Ciccinneti from 18-19 to 1636. bad tha plaaaure of au acquaintance with Mr. P , and wai perhaps on aa intimate terme el friendship with liim ai any other per son. Previous!* to Mr. Powe.t' departure tor Florence, several notices of liim appeared fn the journals ol the day, all of which misrepresented him. They were, al though well meant, a source ot annoyance to the artist and the mi inhere of bte family; and hie immediate friends requested me to furnish au article respecting his eaily life and deed* ol art, that should be authentic. I did so| and it was published in tha Cincinnati Mirror, sometime, I think, in the year 1935. I bis sketch was republished in the Washington City Union, ou the l i h ol November 1-st, and may be reli< d < on as the truth iu every particular. Soon altar its re publication iu the Union, at tho desire of many of his ' admireis here, I wrote to Mr. Powers, requesting a list of his works since his departure from the United 8tates, intending to continue my memoir down to the present | time. To this communication, Mr. Towers sent a reply, from which the following is an extract. ?' Florence, February, 9,1846. LI" Mr ovah old Friend I bod tha pleasure to receivo ' your kind letter of the J 1st November, about a fortnight ago, but much occupation in varioui ways has prevented my ansv-uiiug it until now " I thank you most heartily for your recollection of ma. and for tho interest you have always felt in my success; and 1 should be most happy to comply witn ' your wishes, in relation to my uninteresting history, were it not for the mortification I have letely experien ced on reading a work, in which I figure largely in what i are cnlled 'Conversations with Powers in his studio, lie.' " The author of that work has abused my confidence by publishing many things not intended fir tho public; and. as it that was not enough, he has put words and sentiments into my mcuth which I never uttered nor entertained : and, to crown all, he has made what be culls ' an apology for Powers,' which ii as destitute of truth as it is foolish and ridiculous. "All the circumstances, so particularly narrated, about " his visit with the manuscript, what I said and did, lie., < ara falsehoods. The manuscript was never left with me, nor did 1 ever with pen or pencil revise and correct it. He told me that he waa writing a work on Italy, and wished that 1 would give litm some information about the arts and myself ; which 1 did, not in my studio, hut Ht his own room : and there I cautioned him not to pub lish, as coming from me, many of the facta contained in my discourse, end 1 teceired his promise that my name should be used as sparingly as possible. " I now find that he has paraded me beforo the publio in the most conspicuous manner ; has made mc use tho most pompous as well as vulgar languuge, and father many of hit own sentences, and in some instance*, whole pages of bis own composing ! " I regurd all this as a great misfortntie to mo : for it 1 is eot only calculated to do me present injury, hut. as the - book may find its place?unworthy as it is?iu libraries end other depositories, it will remain a lading disgrace to my memory. I intend, however, to mark and correct, as far as possible, the volume now in my possession, and , when able, have it reprinted with notes expressive of | my real sentiments, and of my disgust and humiliation at the treatment 1 have received. This I shall do, not with a vain expectation to jnterost the public, hut to vindicate myself, and counteract ths evil consequences of Mr. Lester's publication. "With the above tacts in your possession, yon will not wonder uor be ofl'.-nded at my saying, tnat with my pre sent feelings, 1 shrink from the thought of writing a sketch of my common-place history?even to so good a friend as yourself. " 1 hove taken some steps to have the above facts generally known, and therefore, 1 would uot have this letter published. Indeed, 1 would caution you, in this respect, for 1 have seen some of my letters in the papers, which wrro never intended for other eyes than those of in'imate friend*. Your* sincere! cerely. "H. POWERS. " Sam'l York? At lee. F.'q., Washington City, U 8.' 1 very reluctantly have taken the reiponiibility of violating the {attraction* of a friend, and do *o only be came yoar charge* hove been publicly denied by Mr Leater. Mr. Power* it ab*ent, and cannot be expected to fore toe all the contingencies that might ariie to Injure hi* fat reputation. Hit fame it a national treature, and thould certainly be teduloutly guarded and vindicated b^every American. 8 Thia is an admirable verification of all the aeeer ? tiona which Park Benjamin has made against Mr Leater'a truth and veracity, in the matter of Pow ers. If this letter is genuine?and no man would have the temerity to publish such a letter, if he was not satisfied of its authenticity?it places Mr. Les ter under the necessity of establishing the truth of htsbook, in relation to Mr. Powers.or of submitting to the stigma which has been fixed upon him by Park Benjamin. Mr. Lester's book, which was published a year ago, profeases to give a sketch of the ideas, opinions and sentiments of Mr. Poweia We read the book at the time, and formed a high opinion of Mr. Powers, from the contents of that book, as a man of intellect and fine sentiments. We never for a moment conceived the idea that Mr Lester had made the publication without underl standing his ground, or being satisfied of the authen icity of his assertions. The letter of Mr. Powers, now for the first time, denying the authenticity Oj the book, destroys all iU enchantment, and puts Mr. Lester under the alternative, either of submission to all that is said against his truth and veracity, or ot establishing it by proofs, beyond the teach of cavil Such is the singular situation of this literary quarrel, involving personal reputation to a consider able extent. In the first place, there are two libel suits against Mr. Taylor, which will make a matter to be arranged between Park Benjamin and hia publisher: in the next place, the question of vera city between Powers and Lester, is in a trembling and ticklish situation. One or the other of these two must go to the wall?" thii day a tlag muit die" whatever be the issue of the controversy, for three can be no doubt that Mr. Lester must now come out and set himself right before the country, or he must assent to all that is charged against him. Fortifying tux City.?It will be seen by a re ference to the proceedings of the Board of Alder man last evening, that a message was te. ceived from the Mayor, enclosing a copy of communications received by him from the Hon. W. L. Marcy, Secretary of War, in rela tion to relinquishing possession of Castle Clin ton, or as it is commonly called Castle Garden, to the general government, with a view to placing in it a suitable armament, at the same time using the building as a school or place of instruction for the military corps. It was intimated that it was the in tention of the general government to arm the old fort with twenty-six pieces of ordnance of large calibre; while the fortifications at the Narrows, Thrng's Neck, Stc . are to be immediately placed in a complete state of defence. Thk Fourth Ward and thr Pilots ?At a larg^ meeting of the Jackson Association of the Fourth Ward, held last night, the followisg resolution was presented, and passed unanimously Resolved, That we have seen. with pleasure, the in tro'iiKtion ofe lull into the Bensta of the Uniied State*, for tb* repeal ot the pilot law*, pasted in IS37 ; and we dn call upon Congress to do Justice to tha New York pilots, by the way ot S.n.dy Hook, by *n immediate re peel of that law ; hi 1.trims, as we do, that the State of New York is elooo competent to exercies jurisdiction over her own pilot Tux Investigation in Strxkt Affairs ?We are reqseated to say, that Mr. Fweet, Superintend ent of Streets, courts, as far as his department is cone rned, the strictest investigation.
