NEW YORK HERALD. New York, Tu???Ii?y, August 'AS, 1840. The C?ov?niiurnt Orci\i??The Probability of a Change. A strange la.tuity seems to have directed, or we should rather say, misdirected the present occupant of the Presidential chair, as well as his im# mediate predecessor, in the choice of an organ.? One selected the Mailitonuin and the other the Union! What do these names embrace 1 Not a want of zeal for their employer's interest on the part of those two r<"> pec table members of the editorial profession. Un the contrary, slave of Eastern Sultan never swore with more devotion by the beard of his master than did the Maditunian by Mr. Tyler. Chinese mandarin never bowed his head with more assiduous industry to the cnmmiml nf ki< ninnnmr. tlinn dnM tin* ITmi/wi at every word that falls from the lips of Mr. Polk. Seriously speaking, both Mr. Tyler and Mr. Polk have been very unfortunate in their choice of an organ. The Mmlitoninn was probably the weakest that ev?r an administration was cursed with. But it had one thing to recommend it?it did not make large pretensions. Its otlice wad to chronicle the small beer movements of the Tyler democracy, and to announce when the President would hold a drawing-room reception. Ambition to treat of great national quest-ons, it had none. Sometimes, to be sure, it tried to soar into the atmosphere of government policy, but soon its wings became relaxed, and it was glad again to creep along the earth, and content itself with launching occasion ally into indiscriminate praiso of John Tyler. It was not to he wondered at that its death was simultaneous with the term of Mr. Tyler's adtni- ' nistration. With much greater pretensions, the Union has been far less adapted, if that were possible,'for the exigencies of an administration organ. When Mr. Folic became President of the United States, he thought he could pay no higher compliment to the democratic doctrines wh'ch he professed than by making Mr. Ritchie the editor of the administration or^an. The present editor of the Union was a man who had been all his life a sound democrat. He was one ol the oldest, if not the oldest, editor in the country?a man whose private character was of the highest respectability and | purity, but who was unfortunately contrary to the aphorism of the po?t: in simplicity a child. The editor of the Union became the devoted champion of the government. But his devotion ! was like the religion of the Mussulman, blind and fatuous, He was like a too willing witness in oourt. Ho was so eager to give his evidence, as to draw, of course unwittingly, suspicion on the poucy anu motives ci uia administration. L,ike the Knight of the Rueful Countenance, ho laid ! about him indiscriminately, sparing neither animate nor inanimate objects in his wrath. In his mad zeal for the interests committed to his charge, now attacking a flock of sheep, now a windmill, ; though unhorsed and pitiably mauled in each encounter, still retaining to the charge with as much spirit as ever. Did an ebseure little weekly paper, on the extreme confines of Wisconsin, or in somo little smoky village in the interior of Pennsylvania, dischargu a tiny arrow against the administration, the venerable gentleman held up his shield to ward off the blow, leaving his charge exposed to j the home-thrust of some powerful adversary. Did an editor wish to discover the intended policy of the government, he had only to make a bold statement, and forthwith would appear in the Union a dignified rebuke, and a declaration of thfl rani !n?un?uvia UL??L .uw . wv?? i.??v.uvwii3 %JI tug a vi ililili9ll a. nun, UIUIUU^U in innny cn?es such publication was most mis- , chievous in its effects. The President and the members of his cabinet at length discovered the danger and inexpediency of making the editor acquainted with state secrets. But his mischievous indiscretion was not checked. At length the President was compelled, in self defence, to suffer the editor to make statements of a tendency directly contrary to the policy of the government. This was at once discovered; and every thing that was contradicted in ths Union was forthwith set down as being virtually endorsed by the President. At length an effort was made in Congress to induce him to resign, by cutting down his perquisites. The old gontlei tan still holds on like grim death. But, from present appearances, there is every reason to believe that the late editor of the Globe will have charge of the govern- ; ment organ before the end of the present administration. It is a matter greatly to bo regretted, that the American government is obliged to depend for the promulgation and defence of its policy, on such an organ as tlio Union. Fortunately, that 13 nui uiucii ijuuiea uy me r,uroi>ean journals ; but, of the opinion which is entertained by European journalists of a government, the avowed exponent of which is characterised by such an organ, there can unhappily be no manner of question. Ata time when the eyesofallEurope are turned upon America, with a foreign war pend'Ung?wiih grave matter* of domestic and cxter- | nal policy attracting the attention of the world? j that tho state journal of one of the greatest nations of the earth, should be characterized by such a want of dignity?we speak with fecling^T the greatest personal respect far the editor of the Union?is a matter deeply to be regretted. A horse that is used to performing feats ?f graceful agility, withi* the circumscribed limits of a circus, will be totally at fault in a steeple-chase. The editor of the Union, accustomed to preach democracy from the sanctum of a Virginia paper, cannot be I expected to school his mind, at his time of life, to embrace the great questions of national policy.? He views everything through the small end of the telescope. Ihe question eternally occurring to him, is not, " how will it affect the country," but -now want allect tbe party." In view of nil these facts, it is not at all surprising that the Union has lost the confidence of the Cabinet. Although the Olob* was objectionable in some respects, yet its tone was dignified, and by the apparent firmness and good sense of the challenged at 'cast respect for the administration it served. We, therefore, wish the ITnton would ape the Olobt ; but we fear that it first become the latter to be what the latter was. Akkital or Foriiqs V?s?ls of W*i -The 1 Dutch schooner of war, Adder, Capt. Knollaert, came up the bay in fine style yesterday afternoon, ( saluting, a? she passed, the U. S. surveying brig Washington and some of the forts, but we regret to state that no disposition was evinced by either I to return the usual civilities, and she was suffered to anchor unnoticed and apparently unheeded. This, perhaps, is the only civilized city in the world where such a flagrant breach of naval, er even common courtesy could bo pe petrated. The Adder left the Scheldt in company with the frigate Saxon, Capt. Willenex, and the brig of war Echo, Capt. Fredonberg, both bound to this j ci?y. Fbom St. Cuoix ?Capt. Tikiob, of tha bark | Condor, who arrived last night, having left that i place on the 12th inst., states that the weather I continued good, with no apprehensions of a hurricane. The island looked in a most flourishing j condition, and gave promise of an early and abundant crop.

The annual commencements of the variou? colleges throughout the country have mostly been held during the past month, nnd the usual increase to the number of young men who have "finished their education" has been made. We have been struck with the very great improvements evidently made in the management nnd results of collegiate instruction ; but quite as visible are the distinctions between the literary character and standing of one college and another ; and in this latter fact, appears to consist the only inferiority of American to European educational honors. There are in the United States a few institutions established on a permanent basis, unembarrassed, and consequently able to pursue an independent course in mental culturo and discipline, which piaces mem on # par with any European literary corporation of th? same cla*a ; the manner of conveying classical knowledge is equal, and tho mathematical course superior, even t? that of Oxford, or Gottingen ; and did tho reputation of American honorary degrees rest with tlifm for a character, they might safely vie with any in the world ; but unfortunately the majority of tho United States colleges are of a different class ; like mushrooms, they have sprung up in every State of the Union, and for pecuniary interests scatter abroad their literary distinctions with a lavish hand upon any and every one who will pay the requisite fee for the parchment. One institution in Vermont is notorious for this abuse of its chartered rights, so much so, that in Canada, a person receiving his M. P. from that source, must pursue another course of studies, nnd undergo a second examination by a Canadian faculty, before he is allowed to practice within fhe British limits. This fact mny be humiliating to American professional feeling, but it is true. Other faculties might be pointed out, who are notorious for the looseness with which candidates are admitted to the care ?f the Alma Mater, and for the open arms with which they recoive any nspirant to the title of an A B. One college, not very far from our own State, is known throughout the length and breadth of the Union as " Bo- | tony Bay," from the fact that it is the receptacle j of all who are dismissed from other colleges, ; cither 011 account of improper conduct or want of 1 ability. These circumstances arise principally from the poverty of the corporation, who are com- { pellcd, in order to sustain the existence of their university, to admit a number of students swffi- ' cient to pay the necessary expenses incident to its support. The evils of this system are self-evident. Not only is the general reputation of American education undermined, but those colleges j which in fact pursue a higher and more honora- ' ble course, are directly injured. A student after i from six to saven years of severe study at an in- | stitution like Yale or Harvard, obtains a degree j of A- M. or M. D., which coming from the source j it does, should of itself act as a passport to lite- ! rary society, and be a sufficient claim upon the i world for a support in his profession, but when ; the same degrees are conferred by other faculties I upon those who are utterly undeserving, and in- | competent, no distinction can be drawn, and the j mere addition of ary titulary letters to a name, ' renders it none the more honorable nor respected. Till these abuses can be remedied, the colleges of ; our country, which in reality possess deserving merit, will be as now, compelled to rise against a dead weight of mismanagement and stupidity, ever retarding their onward course. The radical ditferencc between the European j and American College regime consists in the difference of the branches of education, superiority in which is COn?idered thn Y>m*? miirilftnnin T? the more celebrated ot English, German and French universities, the dead languages are regarded a? the principal objects of study; and a rigid course of instruction is pursued in them* somewhat to the nc^lect of mathematical profi- j cicncy ; while in our leading New England insti , tutions a student must be thoroughly versed in the abstract sciences in order to arrive at an honorable distinction in his class. The consequence is, that, in our own land, the mental discipline is j generally much more conducive to future usefulness and original invention than in Europe. A mind well furnished in classical lor'* undoubtedly ! possesses a fund always read/ to be drawn on in j elegant conversation or composition, but is not j improved in those qualities which have a direct tendency beneficial to the public. On the other j hand, to the power ot abstraction and habit of re- i search acquired by mathematical culture, may be ascribed that inventive and improving genius so p*culiarly American. In the few instances, too, where graduates of our higher colleges have pro- ' ceeded to Europe, for the purpose of acquiring what might be considered more satisfactory degrees, they have almost always iound that the grouud which they expected to newly enter upon abroad, had already been gone ever at home; and, in one instance especially, we remember, the grandson of the richest merchant of this city, i after graduating at New Haven, was desirous of a subsequent perfecting abroad, and entered Trinity College, Dublin, where, owing to the manner in which he had already been instructed by his American Alma Mater, he earned off triumphantly the highest honors of th? in*tirntinn All that is needed on this continent to place our academic standing on an equality in reputation as well as in fact, with that of Europe, is to sepa- ; rate the deserving from the undeserving, and let thrsc institutions which by age and means are enabled to, and do act consistent] y and indepen- j dently, be placed and patronised as colleges; and i let the others, which, in reality, rank no higher, and utrord no facilities creator than those to bo met with in common boarding schools and academies, be avoided by all as pernicious to republican improvement and character; and let it be underatood that a degree, if obtained of one of the 1 latter class, has connected with it ideas of expulsion and disgrace from legitimate collego government. With the hope of honorable distinction on the one hand, and surety of suspicion on the other, theyonng students of the country will soon attach themselves to, and support, the "tree of knowledge which knows no rot." I ,lTf> vony Hnrirn Tlw tliA --? ? ? -1 Hrazilciro, Captain Thomas W. Williams, we have received files of the Mercantil and Jornal do Comerrio, to the 16th July. The arrival of the "Amelia Mulholland," with the news of the war with Mexico, created great excitement. Freights for American vessels were almost impossible to be obtained. Commodore Ro?seau, ?f the "Columbia," expecting the corvette " Plymouth," and brig " Bainbridge," from the river daily, has notified American shipmasters that they will convey any vessels home that put themselves under their protection . American credits are in disrepute, and cannot be passed, except at considerable advance. The Brazilian government are sending troops in some numbers to' the provinces of the Rio Grande, as is supposed, in consequence of anticipated trouble with Buenos Ayres. From the river there i> no newt of any particular moment. The Brazilian Senate were yet in session, and chiefly occupied with the interior affairs of the provinces. The English war steamer Devastation, had arrived at Kio Janeiro from Portsmouth, having touched nt the Rio de Frata, with military stores. The papers are discussing.with a K?od deal of acrimony, the course of the English in interfering With the Brazilian slave trade ; and ntier severe imprecations against all European interference on tho .South American continent. By quite a largo vote in the Senate of Brazil, public lotteries nave been declared legal, and wUwn under the protection of ti* government. j Oo? Packet Shim?Tne Columbia, &o.?'The ; leading feature of the commerce of this city is the ' packet service. Its extent?the enterprise of the owners and commanders of the packet ships? i the splendor, size, and speed of the packets, sur- | prize every one. Instead of decreasing in number, since the organization of regular steam ship lines, they increase; they not only increase in number, but they improve in beauty of model, in the comfort of their cabin arrangements, and in their size and speed ; and it now seems to he a fact that the average length of passages of the packets are twenty-five per cent shorter than be- ; , fore the steamers began their trips. We were yesterday forcibly impressed with these facts while passing the pier at the foot of , Bee km an street. Three packet ships, the Colum- > bin, Oxford, and Yorkshire, were maored at that I wharf? the Columbia, Capt. Rathbone, preparing lor sea, the Yorkshire, Capt. Bailey, gettin* ready for passengers, and the Oxford, Capt. Yeaton, discharging her baggage, having lately arrived ; from Liverpool, whence she sailed on the 18th ; alt., and not on the 16th, as reported. The pier was crowded with cotton, flour, wooden clocks, : cheese, &c., &c., the cargo of the Columbia, the chief articles of export from this country to Eu- i rope. There appeared to be enough on the wharf to fill the three ships, but the whole was intended > i for the C. The Columbia is a splendid new packet, to ! i leave on Tuesday next on her second trip to j Liverpool. She is over one thousand tons in size, 1 : and is remarkable for the solid, substantial splendor of her cabins?now completely finish- | | ed?the symetry of her model, the snpe| riority of her sailing qualities, and the skilful- j i nessofher able and gentlemanly commander,John I ; ltnthbone,Esq.,late of tho favorite packet Oxford. I It does not appear that any improvement can be | made in tha C. She embraces every thing ne- j cessary to a ship of the first class. Indeed, she possesses one feature tha' is not, we believe, to j bo found in any other packet, namely, a second : cabin adjoining her first cabin. The state rooms j of theC. aro very large and airy; two or three i can be thrown into a suite of rooms suitable for a J family, and in which passengers can have the j same comforts that ihey would enjoy at the Astor, ' American, or at Howard's. Such is the Columbia. Any can see her at her pier, and those who wish to cross the Atlantic, will find her the packet in which to take passage. The Columbia, Oxford, and Yorkshire, belong to the old line of Liverpool packets.
