NEW XORK HERALD. Jf?w York, Tknradajr, Marck IB, IMT. 1'lte ft'jrclgn ??w?. The Hilwrnin, with twenty-eight days later ne vs on board, ia now in her fourteenth day She may be homlv exi>ected 'o arrive. Mtartllng Nevra f.om \tw Mexico. We give in another column some s.artling news, purporting to have been received at St. Louis, which we received in this city yesterday afternoon. If this news is true, there bas been a great Mexican insurrection at Taos. The people rose to the number of six hundred, and killed Charles Bent, the American Govern o: of New Mexico, the acting sheriff, Stephen Lee, Gen'l. Elliott Lee, Henry Seal, and twenty o her Americans, as well as the Chief Alcalde. The insurrectionists, elated with success, were sanding expresses all over the country to raise ardistance, endeavoring toinci e the Indians again it our troops; they had determined to capture our wagon trains, and the probability was that Gen. Doni- i | han and his command, numbering six hundred men, would be cutoff and overwhelmed by su perior numbers. As might naturally be expected, , this news oreated the most intense anxiety. All j deplored the fate ol our gallant countrymen, and vowed revenge to tho authors. We hope this sad lesson will have its proper effect on the future conduct of officers, and that hereafter, when a place shall have been cap. tured, that it will be properly garrisoned. Our loroes must not be too much scattered. Concen fration in our army is strength. The Charter Kiectlou?Oreat Kun Ahead? The Dusty Streets. We have taken some pains to ascertain the condition of tho two parlies in this city?the whigs and the " dirty street" party?and the prospects of each in the coming election, and we are led to the conviction that there is less harmony among the " harmonious" than was ever known, and that il the whigs will take advantage of their disaMsioos and bickerings?manage their cards well, and nominate for candidates men ot clia racier, who are known as such to the great body of our citizens?their success will be secured be. yond doubt or contingency. They have now an opportunity of acquiring control of the city goveminent, and unless they commit as muny blunders and mistukes as they have done in lormer years, New York will be, as they say, "regenerm- i ted." It is a source of much amusement to persons whose regard for both parties is equal, and who cares as little about one as he does about the other; and who thiaks'oonscientiously, as we do, that neither is good for much, to watch the trickery, stratagem and maneuvering that the factions and cliques of both resort to, lor the purpose of i influencing the selection of nominating commit- ' tees, and securing the nominations of candidates from whom they expect a slice of the "fat," or a I f agment of the loaves and fishes of the corporation larder. He sees working at once, all the bad passions ol the human breast, and none ol the good. He sees all considerationsaboui the public good totally disregarded, and made subordinate t3 the influences of private gain, and the hope o' emolument. Such an exhibition we have recently seer. As we said before, the "dirty strceters" are in a glorious state of anarchy and confusion like the Mexicans. They are divided into factions, and topsy-turvy like a handful of coppers after being "shyed" by a newsboy, and no one can tell which will come "head" or which will come "tail," tdl after the election, or until they reach the ground. The result of the primary elections on Monday last, has developed, to a certain extent, the materials that will compose the "dirty street" party nominations. The friends of the following named gentlemen succeeded in overreaching the other factions, and will probably nominate them. They are as follows TUB DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES, WIND AND WEATHER FBRMtTTINO.

To Monday morning, J Sherman Brownell was considered the most prominent candidate lor Mayor; but in several wards, where delegates favorable to his nomination, run, they were defeated. Nearly every ward in the city will present to the convention a candidate for this office. Mr. Mickle, the present incumbent, has not a delegation above the First ward favorable to his renomination. Aldermen Meswrole and Hart, and ex Alderman Lee, will be strongly pressed for the nomina'ion ; Eccles Gillinder, of the 15th ward, will also be named for the honor ; but it is supposed the factions will finally concentrate on a new candidate; and as Mr. Cisco stands fair with the party, and is popular with the military and firemen, his chances will, it is supposed, be the best for the nomination. Mr. Brownell may receive the largest vote on the first ballot. The office of Alms House Com nissionerwillbe strongly fought for. Wm. P. Moss, for some time past, has been considered a dangerous opponent of Mr. Leonard, the present incumbent; but ho failing to carry a committee from his ward, the chanoes are now against him. Mr. Leonard has also failed in securing a committee from his own ward, but as he has the immense patronage of the office at his own disposal, amounting to nearly half a million of dollars, he has secured more or less support throughout the whole city. Geo. W. An <ieri on, Dr. Van Zandt, and several members oi t he present Common Council, will be candidates before the convention for this oflicc; but there does not appear to be any one at present whose chances are equal to Mr. Loonard. Hut, nou? vtrroni. In nearly every ward, some two or three tickets will be run lor Aldermen and Assistants, and in some instances the independent tickets may be elected, he above tiqket we put forth as the one which will probably receive the endorsement of Tammany !Hall as "regular" but judging from the " irregular" condition of the p arty, and the s'.renucus efforts that each party i s making to secure the ascendency, we would not be surprized if the voice of Tammany should he raised in vain. Among these gentlemen we perceive the names of two of the members of the present Board of Assistants, who are on the ferry committee. We can assure those gontlemen, that faction or no f action, their obstinacy or disinclination to make a report on the Jersey City ferry resolution, introduced by Assistant Alderman Smith, will prevent them from having the slightest chance of re-election. Thoy have, apparently, neglected the trust reposed in them, and if they do not retire from office helore the election, thoy will probably do so, noltni voltn$, after it, and for all time to come. We happen to know something concerning the matter referred to them, and we know too what their duty is in the premises. They are not, However, disposed to do it and they must take tke consequenoe. It is apparent, from what we have her* laid down, that the Whigs can, by a little good managemeni, sweep the oity, not the streets, for we quet. i' ' r, ' tion ifthey would do much better than the present incumbent*, if they be elected, but aweep the polls and carry the day at the next charter election. If they do ao they will acquire a nice little capital on which to Btrive for the city next spring, and commence the Presidential cam1 pnign of 1848. Thus much for the whigs and "dirty street*' . party ; but before we conclude, we may aa wel < : ty a word for the dear people, who will be fleeced i , j to their hearts content in the way of taxes, i< either j J of them succeed in carrying both branches of the i ( city government. In order to prevent that, lei the j J people who mime mat questions 01 , policy should not be allowed to interfere in our j municipal elections, and who think likewise that clean stree's and economy in the city expenses, ,ncluding th;? outlay at the Alms House, are the only questions that should legitimately be introduced, vote in such a way that the "dirty street" party will elect one board, and the whigs the other. If they do so, we shall certainly have a better city government than we have had lor a number of years past. There is one thing that will, no doubt, favor tha "dirty street" party, and that is the opposition o the whig party in Congress to the prosec ltion of tire war in Mexico, and their conduct in impeding the President in his endea. vors to secure a peace. Although we have , every reason to believe that the whigs of this city i condemn the conduct ol their factious brethren in the last Congress in that respect, as much as the most radical of the * dirty street" party do, still they must expect to be injured by it, to some extent, at least. They had no reason to put in office men who would weigh in the balance abstractions against the interest of the country. As we cannot elect city reformers, let us have, by all tnt ans, a whig-loco foco common council I this year. Nxw Yosk aud Erik Railroad.?We have given in another column some extracts from the i minority report of the commissioners appointed 1 by the Legislature of this State, to define the j route of the road. The minority reports in favor | of carrying the road through Sullivan county, i auu wo mojuinjr u puiis in iavur ui carrying iuo i road into Pennsylvania. We do not understand ( the policy of constructing this road or any portii n of it within the limits of another State, under any , : considerations whatever, but particularly when I the whole road will, by so doing, be subjected to J I the mast onerous restrictions. The object in 1 chartering a railroad company is to benefit the people of the State gran ing the charter as much t as posrible; and the obj ct in granting a charter > to this company, was as much to benefit the j southern tier of counties in this State, as to S: furnish a connection between this city and Lake ? Erie. In making Piermont the eastern termina- l tion of .this road, the object was to confine it to the limits of this State; and we cannot see the c justice of depriving the people in the interior of ^ the State of the advantages of such an outlet as ^ this road will give, if it is confined to our own | limits. < Military Movements.?Three hundred recruits ' j for the Third and Fifth regiments ol U. S. Infantry, < | leave to-day for Tampico, Mexico, on the ship \ I Smitlinort. under the command of Lieut. J. S. ' I Hathaway, First Artillery. Lieut. C. R.

Our salt prospects oontiaue excellent, and we reiterate from otir last impression the almost certainty of the supI ply not becoming exhausted, as we fear some of our for- < eign customers think otherwise. In a few weeks we I shall probably commence to rake, when the price will go ' ' down from 13X cents, (the present prioe,) te its usual low rate. Tho price has receded in the course of a few 1 weeks from 16 to 13)4 cents. We anticipate a scarcity of ; provisions throughout March, April and May.

It can only be seen the j present week. The new dance "the Pas Rococo" is very J popular?it is a faithful picture of the costume and manners of the age of Lpuis Le Grand, in all the gayety and splendor of the most splendid of all courts?the etiquette, the stateliness, the pride, the dignity of the aristoratio, classes of those days, so well known through | ' the amusing and brilliant memoirs of that period, and in i this representation effectively pourtrayed. The Minuet I d? la Cour is peculiar and striking, it has variety, richness end piquancy about it?it abounds in a quiet humor, and affords great amusement en panant. The tableaux ! at the close is new, in genieus and effective?and striking, because it diffars from their other displays. The " Pas Hongrois" was always one of the most admired of the 1 national dances?and "the Pot Pourri" is unrivalled for interest, brilliancy, t ariety, groupings and general effect These are exhibited to night, and the whole is a gay, and animated picture of national manners and scenic displays?with us it has been unrivalled. Bowsar Theatre?The "Wizard of the Wave" or ( the Ship of the Avenger, with the powerful cast by | which it has been frequently presented here, end the ! very magnificent scenery, gorgeous decorations, fce., I Ac., we have frequently had occasion to notice.

The next question was, had we, meaning the Society, a right to build schools? He would not contend that the society had a right to call on the Legislature fer funds to build schools, but bis proposition was, and he would prove 1', that if the sooiety had tha mean*, they bad a corporate authority to build and open school*. This power waa conferred on them by the original charter of the 9th of April, 1806, by wnich the Public School Society was incorporated. By that act tha society were empowered to purchase, take, receive, hold and etyey any estate, real or personal, or whatever na ture or quality soever, to tha use of themselves and their sucosssors, and else authorized them to establish one or more free schools in the city for the objects named in tho title end preamble to the act. Mr. Ketcham continued to recite ell the subsequent acts down to tha act ol May, 1814, contending the society had a perfect corporate right to erect and open new schools,except those be taken away by the act of 1844; ho aaid ho wished again to impress on the minds of the member* *f the board of education, that tha means of "building and opening school)

wai altogether out of this question: upon that he would have something to say before he finished hie argument; he then contended that the Legislature did not intend, or msan to repeal tha pawers previously vested in tha public school society, to erect new schools ; he aaid the common school system embractd all tho children in New York, or in other word*, that the system, while operating in tho county, embraced all tha chil dren there, end therefore that it must embrace all the children In tho city ; but this would prove too much, and he inarvalled the committee did not sea this. The factjie, the Legislature alluded tc the school sooieties mentioned in section 18, of the law of 1814, and than again, seotion 7 says that those ward school trustees should be in addition to those already ex isting, or, in other words, the old ground should be lefi uader the management of the same parties as before. H? said, referring to a remark, that tha*public school society was an irresponsible body?they were as ^responsible ii point of law as any other body, and ha held in hi* ham tha last report of the aooiety, accounting for hundreds c thousand* of dollars, without a single dollar dcnciancy ? He alio denied the right of the Legislature to alter thi original Icharterg of the aociety. It waa true the) might withhold their bounty, to that the society had do chartered right. Neither had the Legislature any righ to deprive the society of its chartered right to built new schools, if they had the means to do soMr. Ketcham said he would now come to the importan question, which was, could the fublio School tJocietj draw on the school fund? He contended that the BOAiat) had the right to draw iu the same manner and to the saxni extent as the ward schools?they had a right to draw pel head for all the legal expenses inourred for their schools and then came the question?what were the legal ex penses and the fund irom which those expenses were t< be drawn? Legislative enactments were the sources froir which the lund was to be drawn, and the object 01 purpose for.whioh the fund was created was to be the lega expenses for which it was to be expended. Mr. Ketchan contended at great length that the Public School 8oc iet) had a concuirent power with the Board of Education U purchase ground, and to establish schools, provided the) vested the title to all real and personal estate belongini to such schools in the Corporation of the oity of Nets York. He, however, concluded by stating that if then was any doubt in the minds oi the members of the Boari of Education, as to the construction of the school laws he would recommend that this Board should Join thi Public School Society iu an application to the Legtslatun tor a short declaratory act explaining the intentioi of the Legislature, and that that act should contain i promise which would give the Board of Education ; supervisory power in i elation to the location only a any schools to be hereafter established by the publi school society. Commissioner Mason replied to Mr. Ketcham, an said he left the main question out of view. There wa no question as to the right of the Public School Societ; to build school bouses, and establish schools out o their own funds, or from suoh funds as private Indi viduals might be willing to entrust to them for that put pose; the question ibefore thi* board and which it hai to decide, was whether since the act of May, 184*1 the Public School Society had the power to purchase site and establish schools, and draw on tba aohool lund lo: tba expense of eetabliehing tboaa ichoola. Tba loarnei Commuaioner insisted tbat it would ba inconsistent koti with tba letter and spirit of the different legislative en actments for regulating common scboola, tbat the Public School Society should have concurrent powers with th< Board of Education. After Mr. Mason concluded, Mr Sedgwick spoke at some length, after which Mr. Nicho moved an adjournment to Wednesday next, wbioh wai carried. Movements of Trsvetiers.

They arc, liowt v<?r, as complate as it ;. is possible to get them, and arc, na far as they go, of an official character. It appears by the above table that there has been a i great reduction in the aggregate movements of the leadr ing departments. The returns nearest to January 1847, 1 were from eight more banks than those nearest to January.1846, and notwithstanding this increase in the number, there has been a material falling off in several im' portant items, particularly in specie. The reduction in I | specie within the past year has been $0,879,679, while the i > reduction in the circulation ha* been but $6,061. A comi parison of the same number of banks, each year, would show a greater decrease in the amount of specie. The 1 item of specie fund* shows an increase within the year ? | of $6,403.(03 ; but it is so difficult to tell what kind of paper the banks consider specie funds, that we do not look upon that increase as any offsat for tha actual decrease in specie. The banks of this city call almost every thing that cannot be classed under other heads, specie funds. We look upon this itam rather suspiciously, believing it to be of a very different character from what the ; name given conveys. The decrease in discounts is the most favorable fea j ture in the whole statement. There appears to have i j | been a greater uniformity in the line or discounts, ana li ! in the circulation, than in any other two departmenta in ' j the aggregate movement, but the atrength of the banlci : has by no maana improved within the year. The great l- | deficiency in the amoun of apecie haa weakened theee i institutions generally, very much, there not having i. been a corresponding contraction in the amount ot paper r iaauea. There ahoull have been a contraction in the I* | circulation of about eighteen mllliona of dollara, to cor' i respond with the decrease in specie, or to have maintaint ; ed a proportion of specie on hand to paper in circulation, !' equal to that of the year previous. There haa been a t* ! depreciation of about twenty per cent in the value of the >; | paper currency of the country, in 1845, the proportion ** of apecie on hand to paper in circulation, was as 1 to 3X' T. ' and in 1848, the proportion waa as 1 to S It will be seen 1- , that there has been a very alarming depreciation, partiJ" cularly so at this period, as the new flnanoial system of b' j the Government is calculated to produce a contraction, #, ; and the more extended the banks are, and tbe more ini Hated the currency, the greater must be the reaction, n. and more repid the contraction. d; The banks in every pert of the country have until very recently pursued a course directly opposed to the ladependent treasury system. They have not until vary ren; cently believed that the specie clause of the Independent treasury would be enforced, some compromise measure, 0! some modification of the original bill was anticipated, and d, it was net until the final adjournment of Congress, that P all hope was abandoned, and they became satisfied there was no help for them, that there was no alternative but n, an immediate contraction; and we have no doubt but that future reports from all the banks, will show that they y- have commenced in earnest to put themselves in a posi o; ' tlon to meet the changes the independent treasury system must bring about. The principal money markets of the country show that a very great contraction has commenced, and the returns hereafter received will, with ?' out doubt, confirm it. ?
