YORK HERALD. New York, Friday, April !**?< Tlie Weekly IIi-r?I?l? The important foreign news, und the highly inte resting debute in Congress on the Oregon and other questions, will be given in lull in the Wttkly Herald of this week, it will be ready at S o'clock to morrow morning. Nov* from Europe. The Great Western is the next steam ship due. She, ol course, comes to this city, and will bring one week later intelligence. We may look for her arrival on Sunday. The State Convention. J he election of delegates to revise, re model, tinker, and p^tch the cor.stru'ion of this Steie, will take* place u< xt Tu 'hday Active preparations are m progress ihioughout the State, by the several political parties, to have themselves reprinted in that body. The de legates will probably be divided into two great par ties, one consisting ol ihe conservative portion of the iwople?those who are opposed to altering the fundamental laws, and are desirous of letting well enough alone; and the other consisting of reformers of every grade, color and distinction, who are de sirous of creating a new state of things, and bring >ng about u treat political millennium. The changes sought to be brought about by the latter class are va ried and numerous, consisting of the election of all jud.ciary officers by the people, the abolition of mwjers, the extinction of chancellors, the aboli tion of certain land titles, the extension of the right of surtrnge to colored people, and various other reforms, which, iu the opinion of these poli tical economists, are required at this time There is every probability that the proceedings of this boi.y will not be conducted with any great de gree of harmony: but, on the contrary, that the das',102 and conflicting views of these two great parties will either bring about a complete revolution, that may change the condition of parties altogether in this State, and create a state of things that will be disadvantageous to society, or that wrtl be pro ducUve of lasting good results. It must be admitted that the convention about to meet for the above purposes, will be one of the most important assemblages that ever took place in this State The influence of its proceedings will not be confined to the State of New York, but will extend throughout the whole counl try. The country is filled with reformers and revolutionists, whose theories on govern ment, politics, and religion, are of the wildest and most visionary nature. These reformers have, th.oi'gh the medium of their organs, discussed their theories and plans for the reformation of society, and the amelioration of our race, until their num bers have increased to a magnitude, well calculated to appal tiic minds of all conservators of the peace and well being of society. Th" crisis has now arrived for the triumph or de feat of these new-tangled doctrines. On the delibe rations and action of the convention, the members of which will be elected throughout the State on I'uesday next, will depend their adoption or rejec tion If they should be permitted to be incorporated on our organic laws, the whole substratum of so ciety will be shaken, their antagonistic principles will be continually jarring, and the consequences no man can depict. Fourierism, materialism, and and every other new fangled wm that has occupied the attention of those pnwdo reformers, will be ex hibited in all their naked deformity, and ride throughout the land; the forms and conventionalities of society, even, will be disregarded; and anarchy be the inevitable result, sooner or later. We have no thought, however, that such an un fortunate state of things will accrue from the delibe- ' rations of the State Convention. We are convinced that there will be conservatism sufficient in the convention, to repel all violent attacks on the wel fare of the State and of society, that may be made by these visionaries; and that their plans will be con fined to the spots where they originated, viz: the philanthropic heads of their projectors. There is a great difference of opinion in the com munity, as to whether there exists any necessity for the altering or amending of the Constitution.? Many intelligent men of all parties were averse to it at the time it was submitted; while many, like our selves, considered that there certainly was room for reform If the measures of reform that are abso lutely needed for the well being of the people and the prosperity of the State, can be incorporated upon our Constitution, and the unity and symmetry of the sarred fabric retained, the Convention will have met to p-irpo3c But if, on the oiherhand, all the schuncs of reform, that have been debated by the philosophers of the day be carried out, the Constitution will, after coming from their hands, reseii ble more Joseph's coat than any thing else. The patches and additions will b? so nume rous and so varied,' that the origin 1 material will not be discernible. Highly Important Dkvklopmknts in tub His tory of Morality and Politics.?If Mackenzie's brochure is merely a rehash of hiB former book, and contains a great part of his former revelations, it may yet be the cause of some curious and singular develoj ments, on present and passing events. Its re velations have put us in possession of those princi ples whiehj formerly animated and instigated the action of the party created by Van J3uren, and usually termed the Van Buren dynasty of the United Mates It may be the cause of giving some insight into the secret and mysterious policy, which has hitherto animated the inscrutable mind of Mr. Folk, the present occupant of the White House. In a certain portion Jof the new book there is a statement, going to show that a |?erusal of a parcel of so ne of those private letters, particularly those written by Mr. Coddington, formerly post master of this city, caused Mr. Pelk to refuse him the aP|>oint ment of collector, which had been promised to Mr. Dix;and brought about the appointment of Mr. Law rence, who was called the "President's own man." It seems that the individual, through whose agency Mr. Polk and Mr. Walker read private copies of these letters, particularly those of Mr. Coddington, was the well known General Duff Green. We have leceived a communication from this Utter gentleman, which throws some light on this subject, and which we subjoin.

While we have in this note of Durt Green fresh evidence of the utter and .unmistakable infamy of Mackenzie in this publication, coupled with senti mente of pity for him, (for we believe he is merelv the ag.n; of some dark r/tfM or conspiracy for poli ical purposes,) we are resented with some singu- I lar facts relating to the private policy which haa thus lar governed Mr. Folk in the selection ol his prin cipal officers, a policy which has hitherto remained secret and inscrutable to every person throughout the country. It appears that some of these private letters had been read, previous to their publication, by Mr. Polk and Mr. Walker; but we have been informed, and we have no doubt it is correct, that neither Green, Polk, nor Walker, ever anticipated their publication in the shape they have been issued to the worlu. The President, it ceems, when he read these letters attributed to Coddington, reveal ing the principles by which he, as one of the Van Buren party, acted, remarked that he had already decided not to appoint him to thecoTlectorship, but would appoint " one of his own men." The objec tion to Coddington, therefore, was that he was not one of the President's "own men." He wisnoi "the Kind's own" He did not L?l?ng to the White Hou e. Now Mr Coddingioa, when he was port Lustcr, was one of Uu b??t>t we r ver had -far supe rior to the present inefficient functionary?and no doubt would have made an excellent collector. But he did not belong to "the King's own." "I will appoint," said Mr. Polk, " one of my own men and this is the leading principle that has animated Mr. Polk in all his nominations and appointments throughout the country. The President's "own men" were appointed, and not the friends of any other candidates, defeated or not defeated. The fact, therefore, is plain and distinct, that a Polk party has been organizing throughout the country by Mr. Polk himself, and we believe there is now at Washington a kitchen cabinet, whose I names we know ve*y well, and who are the chan nels through which the thoights of the White House find their way to the newspaper organ of the capitol. The secret history of Mr. Polk's adminis tration, and his movements, from his election to the present day, would be extremely philosophical and interesting. We have ben willing, and desirous, and anxious, io assist Mr. Polk in the management of the great affairs under his charge, but we are very much afiaid that he has committed numerous and various mistakes, both in principle and practice, in the organization of his administration, and that the country is in danger of deep disappointment at its success. We will not, however, hastily con demn on mere supposition. We have numerous facts in our possession, and we wait for more. Nkw York Pilots?We are happy in being en abled to inform our readers, that there is every pios pect that the New YorK. pilots will soon be restored ! to the rights and privileges which were unjustly and wrongfully wrested from them by Congress in the year 1837, by a law passed by that body under ex I cited feelings, superinduced by the malicious con : duct of a client of underwriters and stockjobbers in i this city. . Previous to the wrecks of the Bristol and Mexioo, and the melancholy loss of life and property con nected with these wrecks, a self constituted board j of underwriters and jobberB, without a shadow of j reason or authority, presumed to dictate to the pilots, and lay down certain rules of conduct for them to follow; and even went so far as to interfere with their political rights and privileges, and to dictate to them the manner in which they should vote. Against this unwarrantable assumption ol power, the New York pilots in a body pro tested,' and declined to be interfered with by ( any self constituted board, considering them | selves amenable only to the laws of the State | of New York relating to pilotage. The mdepen 1 dent manner in which these spirited and daring fel lows disregarded the commands of this Board of Shavers, excited their indignation and hurt their j vanity, for they considered themselves of great im portance. They were ,in the habit of meddling with every subject that had any connection with commerce. Nothing could go right in the opinion of these worthies, unless they had a hand in it. However, the pilots were not to he trifled with, and j they thought proper to exercise their rights without reference to the manifestoes of this board. The speculators and stock jobbers composing the board, immediately commenced a persecution against the 1 pilots, and devoted their energies to the demolition , of the men whom they could not intimidate. The Bristol and Mexico were unfortunately wrecked at I this time; and the public excitement occasioned by the dreadful loss of life, was laid hold of by the enemies of the pilots to assist them in breaking down this hardy set of men. These catastrophes I were falsely attributed to the negligence of the 1 pilots. Petitions calling upon Congress to deprive the pilots of their pnviliges were circulated in every street of the city, and despatched to Wash icgton in the charge of persons who were to lobby th-m hrou-h C ngr^ss Tritir enemies unfortu nately succeeded in their nefarious designs, and through their false representations, induced Con grefs to pass such a law as they demanded. The effect of this law was to throw open the pilotage of this port .loathe whole world; and immediately this Board of Underwriters, as they style themselves, initiated a set of men into the pilot service, who it was confidently expected, by working under the usual rates, and getting the influence of this board, would br^ak down the old pilots. The persecution, commenced at that time, ha* been unremittingly continued to the present time. But public opinion, although it may run into error at first, will eventually come right. So it is with the pilots. The long and angry discussions that have been carried on Bince that time, have served to develope the true state of the case, the motives that actuated the enemies of the sea pilots, and to prove the manliest wrong that the law of Congress in flicted on the pilots. There is but one opinion, now, in the community; and that is, that the law of 1837 should be repealed. A short time since, the Legislature of the State of Maryland passed a resolution directing their representatives in Congress to vote for a repeal of that law, and on Wednesday the Legislature of the Empire State, passed a similar resolution. Al though it has been a considerable time since the matter was laid before our Legislature for consider ation, their favorable action upon it at last only shows that, after patiently examining the merits of the case, they had arrived at a deliberate opinion that the pilots were unjustly deprived of their rights, f The passing of such resolutions by these two States, together with the passage of similar ones at several of the public meetings lately held in this city, must, certainly, have an important influence on Congress, and accelerate the favorable action of that body in the premises. It remains, now, with that body to administer | the finishing stroke, by repealing the law that it passed in the year 1837, and under the operation of which the pilots of New York have been, for nine long years, deprived of their just rights and privileges. ___ Thk Liscr. Suit ?The present term of the Su perior Court will terminate on to morrow; and doubts are entertained as to the probability of the suit Webb m. Bacon, coming on this term. The case, however, i? placed on the calendar for this day, No. 99, and was set down specially for trial on yesterday ; but the ejectment ?uit on trial, before Judge Vanderpoel, proving more tedious than waA anticipated, the Court was unable to proceed with the case. Should it pass over for the term, the community will be deprived of a rich treat. Ji'Stick f laiNRF.a ?The County Court will meet this evening at 5 o'clock, and will proceed with the case of Justice Drinker. Mt.'RDKR AT HAMMOND*roRT, STRl'BK!* COUNTY On Monday last a negro by the name of Peaae, got into a quarrel with an ther, known in that region as ?' black Nero," and mutilated on* aide ?( his heed with an axe in a beaHly manner.

Italian Oera.?What is the reason we cannot have an itahau opera here, and obtain a ahort en joyment in the deliciona spring time of year, before the summer heats come on, driving us from the city to all the mountainous places where cool, refreshing breezes are to be found 1 Madame Pico is here in fine health and spirits; and, we under stand, the rest of the troupe is expected every day, comprising Perozzi, Antognini, Valtellini, Tomasi, and Madame Valtellini. Here are the materials of an Italian company, ii any of our managers have the enterprise to commence negotiations lot the "whole or none"?for 49, or 54 40. If an Italian troupe should be formed, we think the Park Theatre would be the most eligible place for their exhibitions. It is large, cool and airy, and is now managed with great tact and business talents. If all the fashionable world, including visi ters, would stir up, a short, but brilliant season, for the opera, might be begun. Previous to these arrangements, however, it is expected that Madame Pico should give a concert for her own benefit, and in order to give her old friends an opportunity of showing her their atten tions. It is said that Perabeau, the musical teacher, is ambitious of giving a concert, in order to play some of De Meyer's pieces, but that he wants Madame Pico's assistance to fill the house. With all due deference to these ambitious intentions, we think Madame Pico should avail herself of her freihness and popularity, and not extend it for those to whom it dees not belong. First, let us have a concert, and then let tne fashionable world try to get up the opera in the shortest time, at the Park Theatre. Theatrical*.

Tha two latter animala were, comparatively, novices, not having trotted in this vicinity for soma tlma Bast. For the start, they were placed in tha order men oned above. In the ftrat heat, the b. h. and gr. took tha lead well together, the aorrel a length or two behind : when near the quarter, Dolly broke, and fall behind considerably; and the grey, which waa at this point hindmoat, passed her, and went aome 10 or 12 lengths ahead ; at the half, the sorrel recovered, and resumed her former position, the grey falling off soma 200 yards behind. Honest John maintained the lead round the top and houae, and ahortly after broke into something like a pace, rachit.g strongly ; the aorrel mare came wall up to him, and he only saved his baton by about a length in 9 m. 47a. It waa than found that his bad break and ill going waa owing to his throwing a shoe on tha atraight aide homo. In the second heat, Honest John was the favorite, 3 to 1, in consequence ol Coi. Bartine taking the saddle. After some three or lour attempts at a ?tart, the grey took the lead, Doily second close up; but belorn they got to the turn at tho bottom, Dolly made a bad break, and the bay mare went in front some 0 or d lengths ; at the quarter, the Col. passed the grey, at a good round trot, closing tho gap on the leader considerably ; when near the half, the grey waa moat wotully behind. On the turn, round the top, the horse appeared to be more of a pacer than a trotter?that waa his forte, and when within 20 lengths of home, broke, and Dolly came hime six lengths in front, an eaay winner of tho heat, in 2 m. 40 a. John pulled up. Third Heat?Tho bay horae took tha lead, cloaely followed by tho mare, and are they got to tha bottom the grey broke, and f?ll considerably behind; from the quarter to the half tho aorrel and bay ware abreast of each other, and made a very pretty trot, but shortly alter the sorrel broke, and tha bay took the load some twenty lengths. They kept tkus round the top, but the sorrel closed the gap coming homo most considerably, and when within aoma twenty or thirty lengths of home, the bay made a bad break, and a decided mil stop, and the sorrel came home a dozen lengths in front in 2 min. 46 sea. Fourth Heat.?The Colonel gava up the horae, finding ho could do nothing with him satisfactorily, never hav ing tried him before, and the owner again mounted him The grey led, but shortly after broke. Tho rider of the < bay borse appeared to get along with him hotter than ever, and at the quarter lapped the sorrel, which shortly after broke, and the bay went some ton lengths in Iront, the grey completely tailed oif. Round tha top tho aor rel came well up, in conaequenoe of the bay breaking, and came home in 2 min. 41 sec. Filth Heat.?This was the tug of war. The grey was withdrawn, and the other two were very cautious of each other for some time. At length the bay led the way, the mare making a bad break are they reaohed the bottom, and the horae led the eighth of a mile ere they reached the half. It was now ten to one on the bay horse. They maintained thia position to the straight side, where the sorrel mare gained somewhat, but the bay kept the lead, and came homo some ten or a dozen : lengths in front in 2 min. 46 sec., a winner of the purse and heat.

It appears that officer* Stephen* and Gilbert F Hay* reoeived a pri vate letter iron the South, stating that thl* individual had left Philadelphia and wa* in this city, for the pur poae of having a counterfeit bank note plate engraved ; consequently, these valuable officer* went to work, which resulted in their arreiting Newell in Fulton itreet, near the North River. He was at once conducted before the Chief of Polite, and en *earching a bundle which ho had in hi* poe*e*aion, the officer* discovered a newly-engraved copper plate, purporting to be a (? bank note plate on the Farmers' and Planter*' Bank o< Maryland, aituated in Baltimore, together with a genu ine (6 bank bill of the above bank, evidently the one from which the plate was copied; also a quantity of , bank note paper. Meurs. Rawdon, Wright fc Hatch have examined the plate, and pronounced it a counterfeit on the above bank, trom the fact that they executed all the genuine plate* far that institution ; and since the arrest of thii man, the efficient Chief of Police, aided by those valuable (.officers, Stephens and Hays, and iafter much toil and many steeple** nights, have most fortu nately lucceeded in obtaining the largest and moat com- ; plete and valuable *et of counterfeit ber.k note plates tbat were ever obtained in thi* city. The following i* a li*t of the bank* the platea repreaent: A well exe cuted plate on the Bank of Commerce, in tiU city, of the denomination ot (10.

Also, a beautiful die for striking the half dollar of the United S.ates coin, with a quantity of the spurious coin. Much credit is due the Chief of Police |for the able manner be has oonducted tue whole affair, and likewise muoh praise is due the efficient and persevering officers in procuring this im portant arrest, and no doubt but that the directors of the vaiious banks will substantially remunerate these officer* for th ir efficiency in nipping thi* extensive forger in the bud; for had he eaceped, in all probability the varioua States would have been inundated with this spurious money, by whieh the public would suffsr thousands of dollars. Committed by the Chief of Police for examination.

Justice Osborne held him to hail in the sum of (1 000 to answer at court for trial. Falte Pretences.?

There vu a very decided improvement in the market to day, and pricei for nearly all the fancies went up 1 and 3 per cent. Long Island went up 1} per oent, Har lem 3, Canton 1}, Norwioh and Worcester 1 J, Reading Railroad 3. Morris Canal J, Pennsylvania S's 1, Fannera' Loan 1}. The sales were large at the improvement At the second board, the sales of railroad nocks were very large, and a further improvement of several per cent was realised. Harlem went up 1J per cent, Read ing 3, Norwich and Worcester J, Morris Canal J, Read. ii( Bsilro8d Bonds 3, Long Island 1}, Canton 1. We fear the advance is too rapid to be sustained. Although there is evidently some foundation for the Improvement, we have an impression that it cannot continue long at the rate realised within the past day or two. Tne mo ney market is much easier than it was, and the banka having become satisfied that the Independent Treasury bill will be so much modified, that no immediate or ra pid contraction in their operations will be required, have been more liberal in their discounts, and have therefor* relieved the market from pert of the depression which has weighed so heavily upon the commercial classea generally, and upon stook speculators particularly. The movements in the Senate, in relati n to the Inde pendent Treasury bill, will be likely to have a very fa vorable effect upon the stock market. The Chairman of the 8enate Committee on Finances, in answer to some questions fnm Mr. Webster, stated that it had bea? unanimously agreed upon in oemmittee, to recommend certein modifications of the specie clauses, in the new Treasury bill, so that they ehould go Into operation oa the 1st of January, 1817, instead of the 1st of July, 1848, as passed by the lower house. This will make some difference in the operation of this bill, as it will give more time for the banks to regulate themaelvee by Its provisions. ? The Chairman of the Finance Committee also stated that the Warehousing bill, and bills for the establish ment of mints in New York and Charleston, were under consideration, and would be reported to the Senate as soon as possible. The Warehousing bill has been made the order of the day for the 11th proximo, and it will probably pass, in some shape, before the Independent Treasury bill comes up. This is considered an allevia ting measure; one that will prevent eny unfavorable effect from the operation ef the new financial policy of the government?that will bring about the change that poliey will produce in the currency, in credits, and in the commercial system of the country generally, mere gradually than would otherwise be experienced If the government would only adopt eome plan to get rid of the surplus revenue, previous to the oetablish ment of the Independent Treasury bill, the enforcement of the most restriotive provisions in that act, would not be felt in the elightest degree, and those doing a legltL mate business would hardly realise any change in the financial polioy of the government. We trust the Se nate will pass all these bills in a proper ahape, with the | new tariff bill, as eoonas possible?that the lower house > will concur at once, eo that the commercial claaaae will ' have all the time possible to regulate their operations accordingly. We would suggest the poliey "of hsving the Independent Treasury, the tariff, and the Warehous ing bill, all go into operation on the same day, viz: on : the 1st of Jan uary, 1847. The oommeroe of Havana for the past year, oom i pared with several provioos, has increased but.'a vary tri fling per cent The exports of the principal staples o^ the island of Cuba were, in many instances, lees than in previous years; and the tonnage engaged in the trade of the port, haa not increased one per cent, from that of th? previous year. It must be taken into consideration, in viewing these facts, that the crops of the island last year were below,an average^and the exportation conse quently more limited than they otherwise would have been. There was no foiling off in the foreign demand, as the exports since have been unusually large. CoMMKBcaor Hataka? Rkoiitisid roa Exrea i tation roa II 7babs. Catf't. Molatitt. Jlrrb'i.
