NEW YORK HERALD. 5few Vork, Monday, April 5, 1MI. VrwK Awn Bnropr. We are daily nnd hourly e.x|>eetiug late news from England. There are several packet ships due here, which must arrive within a very short tunc. Easterly winds prevailed during nearly the whole of the last month. They must have tavorvd them. It any news should come before the arrival of the .Sarah Sands, which vessel left Liverpool on the 26th of March last, we shall issue an Extra lleruht the moment it shall come to hand. Greut importance is attached to the next news trom England, by the mercantile portion of the country, for, by its tenor, they will receive advices that will he their guide for many months to coiue. If the scarcity of food is as great in Ireland and other countries now us it was at the last accounts, they can tuuke their calculations to furnish it, and know the prices at which they can afford to purchase. Alalia for Europe, ( The line pneket ship Margaret Evans, Captain Tucker, for London,will sail this morning. She will take out the latest American news to Europe. Single copies ot the Ant' 1 ork Herald, in wrappers, for her mails, can be obtained at the office. ___ The Charter Election?Fun Ahead?The < Prospect. To-morrow week will be a busy and exciting i day in this city?for on that day our annual char- I ter election will take place. As usual, there will be four sets of candidates presented to our citizens?those of the wbigs, democrats, natives, and national reformers, or vote-yourself-a-farm- j with-a-bnug-house-npon-it-party. Variety, it is said, is the spice of life. If it is, , we see no reason that it should not be the spice of politics too. At all events, we will have a vanatv nf <*anftirtnt?u uuHm1If#>,I tn ilia nannlc- hilt which of them will be successful is hidden in the womb of time. The nominations, as far us tlicv have come to ' our knowledge, ure as follows:? Cmr Nomisatiosi. i Mayor. .ihns tfourr Com. Whig Win. V Bradv Democratic. . .J. S. BrowneU M. U. Leonard. Native Kliaa O Drake John Lloyd. The whig candidate for Alms House Commie- ' eioner is not yet nominated, neither are all the ( candidates for members of the Common Council. I The locufoco, or dirty street party, are in aglori- ^ us state, of anarchy and disunion. They have 5 thrown to the winds the " usages of the party," and determined to run three or four tickets in some of the wards. The natives, usually the n first in the field, have not, like the whigs, yet \ nominated their Common Councilmen, neither 1 have the vote-yourself-a-farm party, but we sup- ' ??ose that both of these parties will do so in the ^ course of a day or two. The whig candidate tor Mayor, it is said, is a ' rather clever kind of a man. He is comparatively unknown, hut would no doubt make a tolerably good officer. The locofoco candidate, on the contrary, is well known. He has been a prominent politician for many years, and can command as many votes probably us any man in the party. He held the office of Register, the duties of which he performed to the satisfaction of his constituents, and the public at large. Whether he will be elected, we of course cannot say, but we would not be very much surprised if he should be. The splits among his party, while they will have the effect of defeating their candidates for the Common Council, will bring out all the voters of the several factions, who will caat their ballots for their particular favorites for the Common Council, but united in voting for bim, because there is no split on the mayoralty J ticket. If Mr. Brownell be elected, he will, to 1 say the least, be the largest Mayor we ever had I at the head of our municipal government. He I will make one twice as large as Mayor Mickle, j and three times as large an officer as Mr. Brady t would make. Thus, then, Mr. BrowneU has two points in his favor, viz: his weight in pounds and ounces, and the unnnimity with which he was ft nally nominated. We may, however, udd another point, which will be equally as potent as either of the other two in influencing his election, and that is, his popularity with the tire department. The native candidate has been an alderman, but will probably never be a Mayor, although, perhaps he would make as good an one as either of the other two candidates in the field In this condition are the different parties at the "present writing." The locofocos are sadly disjointed?the whig* are united, and so are the natives, because there are not enough of them to kick up a row. If the whigs and natives unite, they might, if they rhose, carry the city with ease ; and we would not be surprised if negotiations are now on foot to that end. There is some mystery in these two parties delaying so long in j making their nominations of candidates for the i Common Council. If such negotiations are on J loot, and should be successful, the locos will be i knocked into a cocked hat or the Common Council Chamber. It there be no union, the 1 t loeos will be successful, as they have been in ' former years, provided tliey adjust their family quarrels. If they do not, Mr. Browned will bo ' our next Mayor, and the whigs will have a majority in the two hoards. The prospect for fun on Tuesday week next is very promising. In the interim all partu s will strive their utmost to wheedle, cheat, humbug and deceive each other,as well as the dear public, who suffer from one party us much as they do from the othaj*. We advise all parties to bring out their big guns. The Telkuuaphs ami the Storm.?( Htr readers i arc aware that the severe storm that recently visited this part ol the country caused considerable damage to the several telegraph lines connecting with New York. For many days alter it took , place, telegraphic communication was entirely suspended?not a single line was in order. In | many places, particularly on the line between ( this city and Philadelphia, the posts were blown down for distances varying from one to fifteen i miles, and it has cost nearly as mucn io put ineiu ; in repair as it did originally to construct tlirm. We are happy in being able to inform the public that almost all the damage repaired, ami mat within a day or two, as we arc informed, every line will be in working order, and much Mronger and more capable of resisting the clements than they were when first constructed.? ; indeed, all the lines are now in operation except that between this city and Philadelphia, which, wir.g to the imperfect manner in which it was "instructed, suffered more ln.iurv ihan nuy of the \ 'V ers. The proprietors of this line confidently ' xiectto have it in working order to-morrow or ( rmxtday. The experience which all of thecom) have pained bv the last storm, has been irr.ed to advantage The posts have been placed j t ir. *he ground more firmly thin ever, and this, ' J *"?th the new heuvy iron '"ire, will, we hope and c believe, prevent the numerous and very annoying 2 interruptions that we have had for soma time ? l Lost Monev RESioatD.?From the editor of p tiic yational Poii?t Gaxcttt we learn that Thomas s I', JShallcross, of the city of Wheeling, has recovered a part of the money stolen from a gentleman i * who had his valise broken open and robbed on h board the steamboat Hibermo, No. 2, on Sunday ' 1 morning the 11th ol March, at Wheeling.

Ho will ilso appear as Dick Dashall in the farce of ' My Aunt." i'he favorite little comedy of "The Lost Letter"'" will conclude tko entertainments this evening. Bowery Ciacrs.?The friends and udmirers of Kemp, the grout clown, have an opportunity this evening of dia- ^ charging the many obligations they are under to him, g<; for amusing them so much the past winter. He is up for 3d a benefit, and he richly deserves n good one. Ho will be 11 more than himself this evening, and promises his friends a great treat.

Bowkhy Theatre.?Tho manager has been engaged for some time past iu preparing a splendid spectacle, which he will produce for tho first time, this evening. It is entitled the " Naiad Queen," and from what we have beard of it. we can safely sny that it will bo as successful and gain ns much applause as any thing ever produced on this stage In order to have It as brilliant j is possible, he has succeeded in effecting an engagement rvith the popular dameuie, .Miss J. Turnhull, who will icrsonate the principal character, viz?the Naiad Queeu. re rhe whole of the excellent stock company will take part tc u it. and from the admirable cast of characters, no n! toubt can be entertained that it will be performed in a at manner satisfactory to the public, and crcdltablu to tho tt theatre. The performances will commence with ' The tl Lady and tho Devil," and eoncludo with the new piece. e> The Trumpeter's Daughter." The new grand spectacle N will be performed betwoen these pieces.

A poor woman was found wandering in i last Broadway yesterday, looking for the asylum, to l rbich her husband, named Thomas Gannon, who had [ icon taken out of some house in Roosevelt street, had ' icen sent. Should such named person be placed in any ' if the public institutions, it would be charitable to make .u effort to find out the lodging place of his wife, Mary lanuon. The Park.?The grasx is beginning to sprout up 1 uickly since tho removal of the nuisance that had been ( brown upon the ground during the last few months. ] The Streets.?One of the labors imposed upon Her- y ules, was to cleanse the "Augean stables." a work rhich could scarcely have been more difllcult'tUan that f cleaning tho streets of New York from year to year, 'his work lias been going on for the last few weeks, and till the streets are not clean, nor are they properly lived. The whole matter has evidently been got up or the approaching election, aud to serve as a mode of i anvassing for votes?tho thoroughfares being only at- , ended to. The condition of Cedar street, as well as nany other streets, at present, is a perfect disgrace to he authorities. We call the especial 'attention of tho members of the "ire Department, to an advertisement of Mr. Robert Mclntlre. Law Intelligence. Common Pleas?April 1. 1847?Before Judge Duly? laron fan falkenburgh vs. Robert M. Hartltu and Jamct Van Valkenburgh.?This suit, which has been ou .rial for three days, was brought to recover agaitiwt the lel'cndants (who were heretofore partners together utile r the firm of Hartley Ik Van Valkenburgh) as aceep - ( ;ors of two bills of exchange amounting together to about $1000. The drafts were drawn by Rogers &. Sinnickson, 1 )f 1'hiladelpbia, on Ilurtley &l Van Valkenburgh, for an i udebtedness of the latter to the former linn for some , cargoes of coal ; the bills were forwarded by H. St H. :hrough a bank in Philadelphia to a bank in New Vork 'or collection. They were not paid at maturity, and returned to the drawers in Philadelphia. Sometime after] wards the drawers, R. <k 8., transferred the drafts to the plaintifl* in this suit. It was shown by tlio defence that wheu the plaintiff received the drafts from R. & 8., he paid only $350 fur three notes of bis own amounting to $'.2,500. aud for the drafts sued upon. It was contended by the counsel for the defendants that the notes of plaintiff for $'2,500 were giveu as security for the firm of H. k V.. and that this was a payment in behalf of the acceptors, and worked an extinguishment of the ncgotiabiity of the drafts. The plaintiff's counsel opposed this riew by the allegation that the notes of plaintiff for $2,>00 were given n>r an individual indebtedness of James Van Valkenburgh and not for the debts of Hartley & Van Valkenburgh. The defence also contended and gave some evidence to show that certain property which iiuco belonged to the lirm of II. ik V. had been transferred by James Van V. to the plaintiff, with tho view of payiug the debts of 11. 2k V. including the drafts iu question On the other hand the plaintiff's counsel insisted that the transfer of the property to the plaintiff was a private affair of James and Aaron Van V., and with which the hrm of 11. & V. lxtd no concern ; upon which point considerable evidence was given. The Judge charged the jury that It was a question of fact for them to determine which of tho respective counsel had maintained his propositions ; that if they were with the plain ' tiff's counsel on the points nliove used by him, they 1 "hould find for tho plaintiff ; if. on the other hand, they , thought tho propositions of the counsel for tho de- ( fondants sustained, they would find for the defendants. Verdict for defendants. Mr. Thos. Kosscndeu, for plain tiff; Mr. E. L. Fancher, for defendant Hartley.

The stock market closed yesterday very Arm at the 200 urrent quotations. Notwithstanding the advanco dur- '7? iug the past two or threo days, there was an upward ten- 10 dency in prices at the adjournment of the second lroard 30 yesterday. Wo should judge from the uppcaraucc of ^ our political, financial and commercial affairs, that there tow was every probability of an improvement, to some extent, in the fancies.particuiarly in those which have any 21m margin of consequence. Jjjj The receut change in flic complexion of our relations too with Mexico, has given ti very great impetus to opera- 12j tions in Wall street, and had ;i favorable influence upon 23 prices. The influx of specie, the commencement of that id portion of the Independent Treasury act requiring the 26 expenditures of the government to be made in specie, 25 and the prospect of a vory large and profitable trudo this 30 season, have had a tendency to inflate prices of stocks 26 and give the bulls a chance to make up some of the sc- M rcre losses they have, within the past three months, ex- 60 perieneed. Although there are so many causes for an '00 improvement iu the stock market, It would be well for those engaged, to not expect a very extravagant advanco. Those who realize small profits, will, in the end. make the mqst money. Speculators for a rise are too much in the habit of looking for a continual and porma- ' nont improvement, the moment a favorable turn takes Fn'' place in the market, and in waiting for prices to reach a certain point which they set their minds upon, lose, be- "n fore they are nwarc of it, the advance which had already taken place. It is very difficult to induce holders to rc- ><:r alsi alize at n lair profit, when the prospect is very favorable for an advance, ami we must admit that those who are !<"u able to hold; those who cau carry their stocks, lnde- C01J pendent of any reverses lu the money market, or In | not prices, Lave at present more inducements to hold than """ to sell, as the chances in favor of n further advnure arc iutt much greater than those In favor of a decline tlu> The annexed statement exhibits the quotations for l^'' docks in this market for each day of the past week, and *\ilJ it the close of the week previous It will be observed r'Vl that there has been u considerable improvement in most J1 Hm; of the fancies $6 Quotations koh thk Principai.

This road is ^ intended to eouneet with the Harlem at aoine point in 1 the vicinity of Homers. Bristol is about one-third of the t'(l distance between Hartford and Danbury. and we have no doubt but that the road between Bristol and Hart- in ford will be speedily constructed, it is in good hands. We can take care of this end of the line, including Dun- ral bury. an The Independent Treasury act lias be n in oporatiou partially, for throe months. It has been in operation in he its most unfavorable light; the payuieuts to the government have boen required iu specie. while the expenditurcs of the government have only liken made iu specie tU. since the 1st of April. Its operation, therefore, up to the 1st Inst.. was altogether a onesided atfair.and tended very much to crump tho money market, aud to cause an bb accumulation of specio in the liuuds of the sub-treasur- ?< ers. On the 1st iust. the sub-treasurer of this port had in hand $1,600,000 in specie. Notwithstanding this ac- j.4 cumulation and thu transfer of nearly a simitar amount ! to the Mint at. Philadelphia, from this city, within the c,r past month or two the banks here have about a half u million more specie on hand than on tho 1st of February 110 last. al Srtcir. in the New York Ciiv Banks.
