Important Political Movement-Pi rat *o mlnotion for the ,?xt Presidency. e ^cte 6lVen ?n Monday evening, in celebration iue anniversary ot the birthday ot Henry Clay, >' Kentucky, was not only a splendid, a j'?yous oc ea.-.on, to tar as the dishes, the viands, the edibles, nn.i partly the drinkables, (to those who paid extra "r them,) were concerned, but it turns out to have been a great political moveirnnt ot the day, having J'ir iti olr/tct the b> in gin ft into ttie field, for the Prtti dentiul elect ionin 1^1-, the name and fortunes of Henry Clay, ol Kentucky. There is no necessity for us to ni .ke any profound or philosophical remarks on th cookery or ruirine of Niblo, or the Wuy in which he sc-rvd it up, or to note, by way ot parenthesis, the appet't; o with which tlie six or seven hundred hungry politicians swallowed it after it wasseived i'P- Thrae important facts will be tound written in indelible character in the creeses ol Niblo's kitchen, but we are compelled to note with particu lar attention, the sentiments, opinions, wishes, and predelictions promulgated in the toasts, speeches and songs ol these six or seven hundred members ot ihs "old guard," as they call themselves, who were there assembled. I his fiu was unquestionably the first popular movement, bearing on the next election. It was the nomination of Henry Clay, ol Kentucky, for the next Presidency, without reference to conventions, or any other ancient or modern mode of bringing forward candidates. This popular outbreak of ins own friends was an enthusiastic eruption, which has been growing tcr many months past, und which could rot !;e restrained any longer. Hie men engaged in this movement, are, some of, -.veil known. Mr. White, who was the orator i on the occasion, was formerly a distinguished mem- I her of Congress, from the State of Indiana, and is ! now a lawyer, in search of practice, in the city of New iork. He is more ol an orator and a politi cian than a member of the bar. The extent of his oratorical and political power is magnificent, and as boundless as the prairies of the west, embracing the great cave ol Kentucky-while his law practice * is principallycontined to a sort of straggling libel suit?, for one of which he isengnged as counsel, now before a commiesion. But n'il importe. The fame . and fortunes ot Henry Clay, arc now brought be/ore ur public for the last time, by men whose tame and fortunes will be made by it hereafter. Asso ciated with Mr. White, we find a number; ot politicians and editors of the whig party, some of whom are distinguished men, and some of them the smallest of the small po tatoes, and only two in a heap. The aggregate of the whole assembly forming this fite, is however of such a cliatacter as to command the attention of the whole country, and particularly of the American people, in the present crisis of our national affairs; ! which is landing to war or peace, and into which the country is plunged by the present administration, i The other candidates of the whig party, who have \ been talked of, will of course be set aside for the present, if the people should take it into their heads to run Mr. Clay for the last time, against the men now in power. We allude to Judge McLean, ot ' Ohio, aud General Bcott ot Washington, whose pre tensions must be set aside, in the popular enthusi asm rising for Henry Clay. This movement, embracing the nomination of Henry Clay by a popular assembly in New York, before an elegant table, spread by Niblo, will com- ' mand the attention of the whole eouutry, and parti cularly *o in the present crisis in our foreign and domestic relations. Since the present admiDistra- , tion oame into power, our relations with foreign powers have changed to a very remarkable extent. ! We are on the verge of war with the greatest power on this continent, in relation to Texas; and we a re on the verge of war with the greatest power in Eu rope in relation to the Oregon territory. The Ame rican people have their rights in boih Texas and Oregon ; but a grsat many of the people think that me prosecution of those rights, the negotiations un dertaken, or the movements growing out ot them, hive not been conducted with as great prudence,' deep statesmanship or success, as others that have been conducted by other men in the country. Jt is very certain that the whole of the American people would sooner go into a war with the greateat power n earth than submit to injustice or dishonor. But while they possess a high and honorable spirit as a nation and as a people, they will always respect the rights and feehngs of other powers, and on alloc- I casiona would prefer to live in peace with all nations and all powers. It it very evident that, us regards our relations with Mexico and England, we are on the verge of war, nor can it be ascertained how soon the breaking out of hoatilities may take place. In relation to our domestic a (fairs, matters seem also to be coming to a crisis. There are measures brought forward in Congress that will materially alter and change the relation of the various inter ests of this country to each other. It is now appre hended, in a great many intelligent financial circles, that in leas than three or four months we will have a suspension of specie payments by the hanks, and a general panic throughout the country. That the government, the depositors, and bill-holders, will rush w;th the force oi a torrent, in search of specie, and that the proceedings of Congress will only terminate by the total annihilation of the bank ing system throughout the country, and a revolu tion iu business matters throughout the nation. These terrible effects are anticipated, in both our foreign and domestic relations, and are beginning to alarm and wake up the people, and particularly the manufacturers and other classes. Hitherto, the movements at Washington have confined ihei effecta to isolated parts of the couniry, but the great mass of the people, including the politicians of all kinds, are beginning to wake up|to the great change, and to prepare measures tor the only remedy which is in their power. That remedy is in the ballot box; and, accordingly, the fr-ends of Henry Clay, in anticipation ol all other candidates, have again brought him forward as tneir candidate. This movement, however, is only preliminary to ttie contest lor the next Congress, which will take place throughout the country next fall. The Houae of Representatives, whose session begins at the termination ot the session of the present House, will possess the power of electing the President of the United States, provided he be not elected by a majority of the people. The movement com menced in Niblo'e, was one calling on all ihe Iriends, young and ancient, of Henry Clay, through nit the republic, to come forth, and while they are doing that, to prepare for the Congressional flee ti >ns of 1&40 and 18J7, on the membera ol which, tne election for President miy devolve, anless he be elected by the people. It will be seen, therefore, that the Presidential canvass has already begun, and that the same move ment is destined to spring up throughout the coun try, and bring on a criaia in political affairs, that will have an important bearing on our foreign and uoineatic relations. The times are full of omens. This is tiie last, uud probably the best chance of Henry Clay. II he now returns to Ashland?write no more letters on any subject?talk en no political topic?attend to his cows ami his fences?mind his Durham breed and his ro<ation of crops, lor the next three years, his dunce? are decidedly good, better, best, and brilliant. Oiher whig candidates must clesr out of the way when Clav comes into 'he Held. ' THE ELECTION- -THE RESULT. The charter election closed yesterday at sun* down in u blue of glory. The great and mag nificent principles of high taxes, dirty streets, bad police, joyous rowdyism, and fifty-four forty, have moat gloriously triumphed over the whigs, Udtivee, anti-renters, and common sense. Dirty streets and higu taxes, are now two of the established principles of tlua mighty metropolis. Let us no longer grumble. The voice of the people is the law of (rod. Let us rejoice and be glad that we are permitted to pay high taxes, and allowed to walk in dirty streets. These are some of the fruits of party ism. One other result has taken place, the poo( disconsolate " natives" came out third best, just a "leeile" ahead ot the anti-renters, or the Washington-Dixon men. Alas! alas!

In the fourth and sixth wards there were small rows, occasioned by the clashing of the friends of the different candidates for aldermen there. The damage caused by these rows consist ed principally of a few hats knocked into "cocked hats," and a number of torn coats. A row, however, took place in the Fourth Ward about one o'clock, in which a man was knocked down and considera bly injured upon the head. A few officers were de spatched from the police office who quickly quelled the disturbance, and all went on peaceably after wards . In the two wards of which we have spoken there I were two different democratic candidates for Alder- | men and Assistants. One ticket being nominated j by the Tammany or old hunker party, and the other by the young and independent democrats of those wards. It was very amusing to witness the manner in which the friends of these opposing candidates plead for them. " Here " soys a ticket distributor in the Sixth Ward?"Here's the poor mao's ticket, Fosle and Gilmartin." " Here," says another, "is the poor man's ticket, Vultee and Dunn." " No monopoly, no bank, and no Nativ ism," Bays Foote'a man. " No monopoly, no banks, and no Nattvism," says Vultee's. " Plenty of 'pra ties ' and work to all," says one. The same says the other, and between the two it appeared to us very difficult to tell which in reality was the ticket. The polls ol the first district of the Second ward were surrounded during the day with challengers from the Custom House, and every respectable look ing voter was mad* to swear in his vote. How does this agree with the standing rnles of the Cus tom House, that no officer of the government shall interfere or meddle with elections in any way 1 Old and well-known residents were peremptorily chal lenged and compelled to swear their vote straight through or abandon the privilege of voting, while others known to ba non-residents by these chal lengers, were permitted to vote without any opposi tion. It is said that the nativo American ticket of the 12ih ward did not receive the united strength of (he party, in consequence of some of the leaders, in getting up the ticket, rendering themselves some what obnoxious to the party. Iu most of the wards the gatherings around the doors were small, most people voting and going im mediately away. On the whole it was probably ons of the most quiet and orderly elections we have ever had in New York. The democratic candidate for Alms House Com missioner run ahead ot Mickle in some wards and behind him in others. Two natives, and two only, are elected. The na tives polled a much lees vote yesterday than they did last spring?9,000 leas. Tux Army or Occupation.?Our Washington correspondent mad > some curions statements, rela tive to the army ol occupation, and the conduct of Gen. Taylor, in pursuing a course of measures that were dictated by religious prejudice. A gentleman who is now in this city, an officer in the army of occupation, and who has recently been in Texas, has addressed us the following note : New Yoke. April 14, 1840. Ms. Editor?Hiving but recently lett the onny of occupation, in Texai, my attention wu called to the letter of your Washington correspondent, published in the Hrra i of thii morning, wherein t copious " extract of ? letter from a portion of the troopi," and which f* published in a New Orleans Catholic paper.

We have, likewise, learned from another source, and are assured that there wna no attempt bn the part of General Taylor to interfere with the reli gious prejudices of the troops under his ?ommard Tne true state of the matter ia this In order to prevent the men from being induced to go to the vil lage, a theatre of a temporary nature was con structed, in which pl^ys were performed. On a certain occasion, a wandering Presbyterian parson solicited permission to preach a sermon in the theatre .for the salvation of souls. The soldiers were invited to attend, but no force was attempted by the commanding g?neffcl or any officer, to in duce .them to go. The person preached a bad sermon. and afterwards left the camp as rich as he reached it, and without accomplishing the salvation of a single soul. These are ail the facts in the rase, which gave rt?e to the statement in the New Orleans pape r. . Pur* Waiir in Boston ?The majority for purs wttsr ia Boston, at the polls on Monday, was 4MB, Bwhly City BInUm. The whigs have carried the mayoralty ticket in Brooklyn, and probably tied the democrat* in the Common Council. The election was carried on moat peaceably, law and orderprevailed throughout the day. At even ing the head quarters of the whig party were at the National Hall, but they soon found that the room was not capacious enough for the numbers that were desirous of hearing the returns from the dif ferent wards, and consequently removed to Hall's building. Here, in a short time, the large room was almost crowded to sutfocation, all on tip toe ot eipectation, and received the different returns with the most unbounded applause. The company was addressed by Aid Crisp, in a very temperate ad drees, which did him infinite credit. Shortly after, Mr. F. B. Stryker, the Mayor elect, presented him self, and was received with great applause. In a brief address, he thanked them tor the honor done him, and should eudeavor faithfully to discharge the duties entrusted to him. Some two or three other persons addressed the meeting, in a like manner. The meeting then ad journed, and a procession was formed, headed by a band ot music, and went through the principal streets ot the city, announcing the whig triumph. The returns received were aa follows:? Mayoralty Ticks!. SraiNo, 114'. Prawu, I*;#. litm Whig. I>sm. Whig. Words. Talmags. Halt. Talmaf.

There can be little doubt that they have done so, although there is a possibility that the result may be different. SrECK or Wae.? The city was thrown into n state of considerable commotion, by the proceed- , intra ot the Common Council in reference to a com munication that was sent by Secretary Marcy, from Washington, to the Mayor, relative to the defence of this city in case of war. It seems that the administration is waking up at last to the reality, and that they apprehend difficulty to grow out of our relations with England, if not with Mexico. The requirement of the Secretary of War for Castle Garden, is referred to a committee of the Common Council, which will probably make a report at the next meeting, restoring that the original owners. This movement, however, has created a feeling ot excitement throughout the city, and convinced every body that there is something real in the idea of hostilities occurring between us | and England; but while this belief exists, it is coupled with remarks on Secretary Marcy and his military knowledge, or rather his military ignorance, not at all con limeniary to that distinguished functionary, or the position he holds, or may hold in the event I of a war. The idea of demanding Castle Garden, for the defence of this city, is ridiculous, and is called]a real military farce. The only points that can be relied upon for the defence of this city, are Sandy Hook, Staten Island at the Narrows, or Fort Hamilton on Long Island, and these positions are in a state of complete dilapidation, or worse. The only fort among them that is in a fighting condition is that on Long Island. The community here begin to think that our rela tions with England are assuming a serious aspect, ! and that the administration have at last woke up, and are preparing for the worat. The consequence is thnt stocks fell yesterday, and probably they will fall still further this day. If we are to " ave a fight with England, aooner or later, on the Oregon question, it is full time for Secretary Marcy to be mending his breeches, and patching up the holes therein. From Brazil.?We are indebted to Capt. Misson, of the brig Superb, from Rio Janeiro, tor a large number of Rio Janeiro and Rio Grande papers. Our regular files of the Cmercantil and Jomal </? Commtrcio, to a later date, were received on Mon day by the Mszeppa. Capt. M. informs us, verbally, that the Emperor of Brazil was in Peiotas, where he had just arrived from a very popular tour through the Province of Rio Grande, which it was thought would greatly conduce towards keeping that district in its present peaceful and quiet state. He was expected te leave for Rio Janeiro about the 15th of February. Sandwich Islands ?The bark Alliotb, Captain Spring, arrived yesterday from Oahu, whence she sailed on the 20th of November. She brings no im portant news. The U. S frigate Constitution, Capt. Percival, waa at Oahu. last Irom Ivans Bay Batan. The C. sailed on an independent cruise from Hampton Roads on the 17th of April, 1844, touching and remaining at New York 85 days; thence to Rio, and so on to China and Honolula, where the arrived on the lfith of November, 1845; having visited daring that time twenty-three ports; railed 32,254 miles in 818 days and 18 hours, and remtUMd 262 days in the varioos ports. Avalanche at Troy.?Another elide of earth took placo at Troy, on Saturday last pear the nail facto ry, In tho lowsr part of that city. Two men and ? span of hories ware instantly k.'lieJ A barn on tbs farm ot Henry and Isaac Hineklo, n#?r Columbia, Pa., waa consumed by Bra on Sunday last. Thirteen oows, (our horses, end throe caleea perished in Uie flames; and a quantity ot har, a thrashing machine, ho'rae gears, and a lot of {arming implements warn con ftUMoT , PftOBABLK SuSPSitBlOM OS SfECiB PAYMENTS ? According to nil appearances it seems to be highly probable that the bunks here, and throughout the country, will suspend specie payment in a short time, probably before or after the middle of sum m-r. It is well known that the Wall street journals live and exist in the confidence of the backs in that street, and that the seniiments which they put forth, and the purposes which they reveal, come from the bank parlors of the various institutions in thst quarter. Since the sub treusury bill passed the House of Representatives by a large vote, making it incumbent on the government to collect all ita dues. and customs in gold and Bilver, there haa been a considerable eflervescence, and a great amount of feeling among the banking institutions; and this has escaped by the usual aafety valve, by their organs in Wall street, and throughout the country. By the same journals, it is now said, thru the eub-treasury bill will pass the Senate, iu the same shape in which it pasaed the House. If this be correct?and tbe banks and newspapers would not promulgate such facts, if they were uot true?we may expect, in the course of tbe summer, as a mat ter of necessity, the gradual and final suspension of specie jwyment by the banks in New York, and throughout the country. The operation by which this new condition of financial affairs may be brought about is very appa rent. An apprehension will prevail among ihe banking institutions and the depositor? that the government, as soon as the law pass the Se nate, will carry that law into immediate effect, by demanding all bank deposits, dues and customs, to be paid in gold and silvsr Ths friends of 'he banks will, therefore, take time by the forelock, and in the . same ratio as this demand will increase, the banks will diminish their specie. In this state of things, the government itself will naturally take alarm ; and so there will be a general rush lor specie, by the government, the private depositors, and the bil| holders. Now, it is well known that a concurrence in such a rush, by the three interests we refer to, would produce a suspenaion in half a day. It is very true that the banks all profess to pay specie on demand to all depositors and bill holders; but it is well known that this has not any truth in practice ; in fact, the whole theory of payment en demand is a sort of scientific lie, wbich is not believed by any :

of those who have a practical experience among those various interests. Believing, therefore, from all these high sources of information, and the ideas put forth leading us to anticipate a suspension among the banks, it is lull time for the community to take the matter in hand, j and reflect what to do in anticipation of such a crisis. In quiet and peaceable times, when great confidence exists between man and man, banks have no trouble; great profits enable them to raise money, and a variety of circumstances tend to give ! them the appearance of prosperity. In war or revolutionary times, they are, comparatively, a broken reed?utterly worthless, and lead people into error and confusion. Since tbe great revulsion of 1887, banking in this country has never attained the same power?since that run upon the banks, it necessarily had its efleet upon the great commercial interests, and a majority are trading ; upon their own capital; in fact, the best interests in j the country have separated themselves from the banks during the last few years, and nothing bat this arti ficial security in relation to capital has sustained this system of stock-jobbing during the last few years. It is probable they are approaching the crisis now anticipated by the Wall street journals and the banks. It will be first brought abont by the action of the sub-treasury bill, which, when carried out, will drive all the banking institutions out oi existence. The great and solid interests oi the country are beyond their reach, and care nothing about their fall. The Literary War?Battle of Austerlitz Expected ?We understand that Mr Lester intends to come out in a day or two upon the affair of Pow ers, the artist, and vindicate the truth of his state ments and the propriety of his conduct, against the ?eeeette tirade epo* hint br Park Benjamin, of Balti more. We have been assured by his friends, that he is able to make his case good, and to establish th? truth and veracity of his statements in relation to Mr. Powers, and so throw back the falsehoods which have been fulminated against him by Park Benjamin. What may be the nature of his answer* we by no means know; but to rebut the evidence of Mr. Powers, he must be strong indeed, and some thing similar in character, or authenticated by ver sions of Mr. Powers' conversations, or by letters from him to Lester, explaining the whole. As it is, Mr. Lester is in an awkward dilemma, and cer* tainly is called upon to establish his reputation for truth and veracity in an effective way. We wail with some impatience to see how this amusing squabble is going to terminate, and who is going to be the Napoleon of this literary campaign. We should not be surprised to see Park Benjamin come out third or fourth best.

Such and similar deads of liberality and kind ness to our fellow man. is one of tha bast uaes wbick can be made of the gifts of affluence and fortune. The "Cricket of the Hearth,"the first piece performed last j night, is a play full of sentiment and feeling, embodying the mind aud genius of Dickens and < rabb Mr Fisher, always close to nature, and a faithful ronraseutative of ; iha leeling, tha folly, tha eccentricity, the roughness, the smoothneai, and all the ront e l ctiot.s of the strength and weakness, the wis 'om and folly of human nature, is periectly at home in the char cter of Mr. Tec kl-tuu. Mr. Base, as Caleb Hummer, though it is some wnat out of his usual line, being a chsrso er purely sen timental and even melancholy.and not a smile belonging to it, plays the part admirably, and with genuine unaf fected lacliog. Miss Crocker, as Bertha, w ins all hearts by the tenderness and gentle patience which she pour trayaso well and so touchingly, though we carnal but feel an involuntary shock every time we witn-ss the mimic assumption of so dreadful a calamity as that of hbnonese. especially by one who baa such fins eyes.

It is astonishing what crowds are drown every night to the above theatre, an lions to wit ness the gorgeous scenery, magnificent spectacles, and energetic acting, spread lavishly before them on the ex tensive arena of tha grand stage of this theatre. It ia itself a spectacle and a most amusing sight to band over from the boxes and look down upon the living maaaea i in the pit below, or up to the waves of life above!? The moment the curtain fails, that instant the pit, hashed itili as death before, ia in commotion, like a I storm on the ocean alter a dead calm, when the waves ; which, but a few moments before, were smooth as glass, ' now toss and foam, aod rise up angrily, rolling mountain ovar mountain. Then again, when the b*ll lings and the curtain rises, it is amusing to witness the sudden and | iurtanteneous transition from rough to smooth, and how Sreedilv the crowd hang upon the plaintive moaning* of Irs. Phillips, the strong sgita'ions of Mr. Davenport, or the htroic tone and magnificent demonstrations of J R. Scott. " Lafitte," and the " Carpenter ef Rouen," which were perfoimed last night, are eminently calculated, by their powerful and thrilling interest, to excite the feel ing! and enchain the audience, e* we have described it. The nightly crowds which gather to witness theae pieces, ere proofs of tho power, interest and popularity which belongs to them. Added to this, the energy, skill and talent ot the company are to well displayed, Joined to the amazing spirit and noble enterprise of the mana i i ger, that tucceaa of the moat brilliant kind eannot fail to ; . follow, m it ought and does, auch tCorta and such mart torious exertions.

It eppears to ui that Messrs. Myers and Tomliason, as well as Mr. j ?rattan, the stage manager, evince good sense and great judgment in this selection of light pieces. We hope j their labors and skill will be crowned with (he success j they so eminently deserve. It would be, indeed, a cry- I iug shame ii the vast population of the upper part of the I cny had neither spirit, liberality, nor meaus enough to support this theatre, with the immense number of iodi victuals connected with it, who ali depend upon the pub lic spirit, good taste mid liberality of the upper-town ci tizens, aud on their patronage aud support. Tnc com pa- j i y here is not only uuiueious, but singularly talented. Seldom has so large a company been collected together with so few to find fait it with, and with so many of such talent and merit in their profession. To convince tnv one of the peifeet justice of these obser rations, it would have been necessary to witness last night Mr. (Rattan as : Bromley, in the feice of " Simpson Us Co ''?Miss Julie Drake as Mary in the " Dumb Bell," and again in the ' " Arful Dedgsr j" or the two Chapmans in the same pieces. H was a rich treat of amusement, humor, wit i end entertainment. Miss Julia Drake improves more i and more on acquaintance, and though not vaunted or i lauded as a singer, she possesses a voice so sweat, yet ; so strong?so harmonious and so well disciplined, that if j that was all she depended upon, the would be, indeed, a most fascinating artist. Such a company cannot fail . to draw, and the loll houses which nightly resort hither 1 thus far, are proof of the judicious taste and feeling of : the upper town public.

Tha competition between thia canal and tha Reading Railroad, is likely to bo carried on more axtansiv* y than ever, but the facilities, he., of the rail read for transporting coal to tho seaboard are a* great and their advantages so numerous, that wa have great doubts of the policy of the enlargement of tha canal, at tha im mense cost incurred. Tha railroad company hav* so many facilities for tho aonatruction and extension of lateral road*, reaching all tha mines within miles of tl * main track, that they can command tha carrying fcmi sail of the whole Bchny Ikill region; first, bscans* they can transport coal ao much more expediiieusly, and se condly, because they can transport it more economical ly.
