Scott, and the investment of Vera Cruz. Single copies Cj cents each. The News from Europe. Within the twenty-four hours preceding the last past twenty-four, four expresses reached the Herald office from different parts of the I country. We informed our patrons a few days | since, that several picket ships, with late news, | were then due, and were hourly expected to arrive, and that the. uews would be published in an Extra Herald as soon as it was received. Four such vessels arrived, and four expresses arrived likewise. The first brought to us the packet ship Liberty's news; the second the park- ! et ship Gladiator's news, which was three days ; later than what we had previously received ; the third brought the intelligence hy the packet ship j Southerner, which was three days later tnan that received by the Gladiator, und which the Herald published exclusively yesterday ; and the fourth arrived in our office yesterday morning at 8 o'clock, from Philadelphia. This last one ! j started from there on the arrival of the packet i . ship Wyoming, which sailed from Liverpool in i company with the Southerner. | These expresses, as a matter of course, are very | , expensive matters, but our immense patronage ' ; ustiffes us in using extraordinary ntcans to place , r before our readers the latest news from every , j>art of the world, without reference to expense, j We never take dollars and cents iuto considers- j 1 tion in bucIi cases. Late news we must have? J have had, and shall and w ill have. 1 J We wonder what excuse a certain grumbling Wall street journal will offer to-day for not publishing the Southerner's news yesterday. The Loudon money market continued, at the latest advices, very much depressed. Consols ' were steadily receding, and money was in de- ] utand at an tcreased rate of interest. The grain , markets were rather active, and prices improving. It was represented that the supply of breadstuff's, in every part of Europe, was decreasing, the receipts from external sources not being sufficient 1 to make good the consumption. Should this state of things continue, we see nothing to prevent , prices going beyond the most sanguine anticipa- | tions. The cotton market, on the contrary, is in a very depressed condition, with limited sales i and declining prices. There nppears no immediate pros|>ect of an improvement. We should ! judge, from the remarks made in the reports of the j cotton market, that a very erroneous impression existed in Liverpool relative to the probable ! supply of the raw materiul, and the extent of the ! " nrt?ir n/vini not ti> mnvb ut ILi mi n t kit ro ceipts at our ports, up to the latent dates received 1 at Liverpool, had been larger this year than for j the corresponding period in 1846, it was supposed ! that the aggregate receipts for the year would be larger than last, all the reports to the contrary i notwithstanding. Operators on the other side, | will find out their mistake upon this point, when 1 i it will be too late to help themselves. The packet ship Oxford, Capt. Yeaton, is the i next ship due from Liverpool. She was to have ! left on the 16th ult. Mail Steamers to Boston.?We are informed that our citizens, as well as travellers, suffer great inconveniences by not knowing which line of steam boats leaving this city daily for Boston, is the " regular mail line." Complaints are made that letters deposited in these boats do not reach their destination with the same regularity as when they are sent from the Post Ollice. . ( There are two Boston lines from this city? j j one by the way of Norwich and Worcester, and ; the other by the way of Stonington. The Nor wich and Worcester boats carry the way mails between New York and Worcester, and nothing . ] further; consequently all letters intended for Boston and places beyond that city, will not reach their destination as soon as if they were deposited in the boats of the Stonington line, which is the regular mail line for Boston. The number of letters carried by the express mail on the eastern route, between this ritv and Boston, has more than doubled within the last six months, and is fast becoming an important branch of the department, as well as accommodation to the public. In order to guard against similar mistakes hereafter, we mention these li^ct.s, and repeat, that the Stonington boats carry the regular mail between New York and Boston, nud leave daily (Sundays excepted) from the North side of pier No. 1, Battery Place, at 5 o'clock P. M. The " Oregou" w ill be one of the regular mail boats between New York and Stonington, during the aeaaon, where all letters Hiid mailable matter, pre-paid or otherwise,deposited in tlm letter-box at the Post Office, on board, will go with the same certainty as if deposited in the city Post Office. Arrival ok Packets.?Fourorfive packet ships Rrrtved at this port yesterday from Europe. The announcement of these arrivals created quite an excitement among the merchants. Among the arrival* yesterday was the fine # packet ship Sheridan, Capt. Cornish, from Liverpool. She sailed in company with the Southerner, for this port, and Wyoming, lor Philadelphia. These three vessels made about the same time across the great Atlantic race course. Our Teazer having obtained the news of the Southerner, neglected the Sheridan. Our harbor is now full of packets. < bie line, composed of four ships, lias three of tlieiu ill port. Si ram Snip Sarah Sands.?Wc learn from < aptain rainier, of the packet ship Southerner, that he saw ih'- steam ship Sarah Sands, on the l\i~ Vlnrol. i..

She left this port on the 21th of February. % The Bodon steamer of the 1st of March had not wrr!\e<l at Liverpool on the 11th. mrrtican Commerce.?Our Montreal subscriber will perhaps have seen, ere this, some of the details of the "extension of commerce," (,f which we have previously spoken. We refer hi in now to the isthmus of Tehuantepec, the possession of California, fcc. lie. strSur IIiber.ua arrived at Halifax on th* Mi -ir:-r , in thirty-nix hours from Boston. *ha HtlUd on the ssnia d?v for Liv*r|'?'?l Whig fUttlication MtcUiig last evening. In National Hall. Tlie whig* of the city and county of \e w York laving been culled together by tIt** proper odivert o hear the report of their nominating cojiunittee, isitembled in grcut strength last evening at their i ... v i 11..11 / i .,,,....1 ii* uuqiuu i<* *y in ..^auuii'ii ntiw, v.aiiui rurri, The time appointed ?'#h hult' past seven o'clock, at which time we found the room pretty well tilled hy the friends of William V. Brady, the whig c tndidute for .Mayor, and Joseph R. Taylor, the whig candidate for Ahns Ilonse Commissioner. From half past seven until eight a fine band on the balcony amused the persons present by playing several beautiful and enlivening airs. At eight o'clock the meeting was called to order, and Alderman Benson elected to preside. Mr. Henry E. Davis, the chairman of the Nominating Committee, hereupon delivered the eport of that body, and recommended that Wm. V. Brady, and Joseph Jt. Taylor he elected >v the whig* of New York to the offices of Mayor, and Alms House Commissioner. In eference to the selections made by the comnittee, he said that he knew Win. V' Brady or years?had served with hint in the Comnon Council?knew his large whig heart? mew that he represented the banner whig ivard of New York, the 15th, with faithfulness.? His unwavering devotion to the whig cause, jointed him out as a fit candidate; and in selecting him, the convention did no disparagement lo other worthy members of the whig party. In reference to Mr. Taylor, all lie would say was, that he believed the affairs of the Alms House could not be placed in better hands. At all events, he thought that all would agree with him. that a change in that department, at leabt, of the city jrovenunwu, WM much needed. According to the accounts published, the expenses of,that department last year, were,$343 000; and in 1842, under the whig administration, they were $238 000, making a difference of $135,000. So much for whig administration. He then recommended all vvhigs to buckle on their urtnor for the fight, und elect their candidates. He continued. and said that it was pretty business to sup port a Horde ol loco tocos?some iiiteen nunarea office holders, the ninount now under pay by the locofocos, on ? pension system worse titan the pension system oJ" monarchical countries. Come up, then, whiga of New York, he said, and rescue the city from a continuance of this system. It is no shame to vote the whig ticket. Who is it that, is lighting the battles of our country and achieving \ ictorv after after victory ! Is it not a w hig, and a modern whig, as our opponents call |hent._ What blood is it that is being poured out in defence of the country I Is it not whig blood, the blood of Harry Clav, the son of Henry Clay ?his only and beloved son?the son which he 'five to his beloved country ! Yes, these are the ncri who arc tighting, and with whom wo are silling to fight for, all time to Come for their ountry. With such triumphs coming from tlexico, from Connecticut and other places, (apdausc,) will we not give the ball an impetus that 1 v i 11 roll it all over the country, and crush the last remnant of locofocoism ? Ambiiose L. Jordan, Esq., then read the retort of the nominating convention, which we tave no room for, but which was in every reject like all documents of the kind. The unount of it was, that under whig administrations tilt' city expenses have always been considerably less than under loco foco administrations, and if Mr. iirady and Mr. Taylor are sis good men us they were therein represented. th'T would undoubtedly make the best officers ev%r alerted in this city. There is one item, however, which is worth mentioning, and that is as the uddrcss st'irt lorin, mm 111 inree years expenses ui mr city increased $473,21(1 00. If this sum increased in the same ratio for 20 years?the report stated the expenses of the city at the end of that time would amount to two uud a half millions of dollars. After the reading of the report, there were many calls for Mr. Hall and Mr. Hoffman, hut neither of these gentlemen made their appearance. Mr. Mason, it was said, was in the room, and that gentleman being loudly called-for, addressed the meeting us follows :? lie sail I iliul one of the tlrst addresses which he over delivered in public, was made in the campaign which should have elected Henry < lay to the Presidency.? (Cheers.) I remember, said he, of being one of Ave gentlemen who took the liberty of predicting that the vote of the whole country would turn first on the vote of this city, and next on thu vote of this State, and that the votes of the city and State would control the Union.? He asked, was it not so? He had not the pleasure of being acquainted with any of the gentlemen who urn uomiuated by tbe whigs at the apnpproaehing election, but the fuct of their being nominated by tho whig nominating convention, is sufficient for him to know that they should be elected. Indeed, from the enthusiasm manifested at this meeting, be knew they would be elected. He impressed upon tho whigs of New York the duty that rested on them to work and labor for the election of their candidates on Tuesday next. Their success in this election would have a tremendous influence in the West. Tho news from Connecticut was cheering and would have its lufluence, but it would bo only a drop In the bucket. The election of the whigs in this city would scod a thrill that would be felt throughout the whole universe He said that he was not acquainted with tho local politics of New York, and, therefore, ho could not appeal to sectional prejudices, if ho were, however, he thankod <?od lie was above doing anything of tbe kiDd when great principles were to do decided upon. The only tblng he wanted to know was. have the wbiga a delegation, that, if elected, would discharge the duty that man owes to man .' If the whigs of New York have such a delegation before them, they should be elected. When have the whigs put themselves before tbe country with such prospects as they have at present ? Admit that you were defeated in 1844, in sleeting a man who was the admiration of the world.? (Cheers.) What Is the lesson you should have learned from defeat ? Was it not the lesson that you should use greater vigilance in future, and never to distrust your ?wa abilities.' He thought Providence had a hand in placing the whigs before the country at the present cribs; for never was there a time when a change tn the rulers of a nation was more needed, lu regard to the war. the present administration lws struck daylight out if themselves. (Applause.) In their attempt to defeat Hen. Taylor, they have given success to the whigs, and, like Hainan, they will be hanged on their own gallows. (Cheers.) Sir. ,Mason then referred to the number of I he slain in the war. and mentioned particularly the names of Ringgold. Henry Clay. Jr., and others, and said that all the whig blood that has been shed in the war with Mexico, and has moistened the soil of Mexico, will, like the dragon's teeth of old, produce armed men to In-nr down tin- administration. Mr. On i. llky being railed for, rose and said, that while h? depended ouly upon the whlga of New Vork to carry the next election, ho confessed lie despaired somewhat oi thu result. but within a few days ho had conversed witli men of the opposite party, nnd he found a dcalre auioun them that the whigs should succeed. The whig* hav? tliereforo only half of their duty to perform, and Mr Brady would be our next Mayor. [Chuera. ] it la felt by the other party that they hare gone to the utmoat stretch in nominating Mr. Browneil for4the Mayoralty. It would aeem as if an experiment had been trieif to teat the purty to thontmoat tom what it would haw, it in like trying a cannon in which double and treble charges nri put, to see how much it would Is-nr (Laughter.) If Mr. < ireely continued. Mr. J. Sherman Browuell he elect' ed Mayor of this city, 1 would be willing to dispensi with elections hereafter, nnd have candidates placed Ir "tllee merely by show ing of hand i. nnd have no poll al all. 1 know nothing, ho said, of Mr. Browneil personal ly; I have not the pleasure of his acquaintance. out fron members of ills own party I learn that in- has spent ut honest but useless life Now, electing aueh a man tiiink would lie setting a bad example in this city, par ticulurly to our young men It would be saying tha such a Ufa is the course to honor and distinction it the eity of New Vork. As regards tho ( ommon t.'ounei if I believed our men w ould, if elected, rule the city as i lias been ruled for a few years back. I would prefer tha the parly iu power remain in power. It would be belle for us. as party men, if such things were to occur tha l hey took MM* under lowfcw BdminiMrutration- liu lie did not think tbey would occur under a whig gov crnment Mr. 'Jrceley then glanced ut some of the act of the present corporation, and said that iu ouc lnstane live or rn thousand dollars were given away here MM there for public meetings, and a large sum given to inci who had violated the law . for the purpose of paying tli fines which the luw indicted on tlieiu for disobeying It lie thought the people at large were not so mueii aetu nted by party feelings, or shackled so much by part ties as they have been In other days. In COnsequene of their being more enlightened now than they use to he. lie know of thousniids in this city on wlioi (lie shackles of party hung loose, nnd hence h argued the success of the whigs on Tuesday next. 11 was Informed no later than this day. hy a member i the democratic party, that two thousand of them wnul vote for Brady, the whig candidate for Mayor. If the do. Mr Brady would have a tremendous majority. Th result of our ?-ity election Is more important in its ii Alienees, on distant places, than people think. He kne of one hundred people in a country village wulthig ti laic at night for the receipt ot tho mall to learn Intcll g. nee of the result of our charter election. II' cor eluded by urging the whigs of New Vork, as tbey love the cause and the (treat leader of the cause, to stun faithful at th? coming election for one half of thcrn t go to the polls, and tho other half to go round and sc tboir neighbors, and prevail on tboui to rot*? to tak ' 1 nn,| ihom Tntft ii# HAW OE thousand wbigs before Ibeni, and If ' neb of them wotil 1 ringnineteen voters to tbn poll*, the whig candidal* would bare two thousand majority on Tiiawy neat.

We are now. he said, in debt some twelve or thirteen tnilliudit of dollar*, and yet the Comuinu Council is petitioning the legislature for liberty 1 to impose an udditipuui tax on us, that wilt amount to one dollar and tlyo rents on the one hundred dollar-*.? I How has this debt la-en created ' Cook at the alutl UoUse expenses for the ln-| year, and you will see in what mauuer the ulTairs of the city have been eondueted for a few years past They uuiuuiit. the past year, to nearly three hundred thousand dollars. See what au Item that is Ou looking over the Comptroller's report. I was surprised to see some items in it The expenses of the alms house are put down at $-J90.3I3 74-100 Now. let us see how this large sum is inade up The first article mentioned is hotter. $4 440. Then comes an item for fireworks. $300. Only think of fireworks at the alms nousc : in lliu name 01 ncaven. wnai ii.ih iucanus uuuse j to do with fireworksThe next Item is $40,000. I for donations to. and transportation* of paupers. This large amouut of donutions has liven distributed , under the direction of a committee styled the --visiting I committee,'" and where are the vouchers to show how it I haa buen expended? Again, "inediciuo and surgical in| strum cuts $0440.'' Here we hare over five thousand : dollars expended for medicine for the Alma House. I J venture to suy that Gun Taylor willi all his force, and with ull the lilood that lias been apilt in the great battles j In which he commanded would not require so much ' money for medicine as is here set down for the Alms House. Well we'll look at some more items. Klour $48.100. Beef $3(1.000. Coal. park. etc.. making in all neurly oue hundred thousand dollars, and vet in looking further I sec a charge for -marketing" of $400."). What under heaven is this for? One would suppose that after all the items for " beef" ' pork-' ' medicine" and " surgical Instruments."' all the " marketing'' was done; but it appears it is not so Well, let us look a little further. Stationery $953. Only think of 953 dollars worth of stationery being required by the inuiates of the Alms House. And what was this for ? Wus it for providing 300 quires of paper for their correspondence? Kor what purpose can this large sum bo charged for. not one of lifty of the paupers cau write bis own name ? Well, again: I tlud an item " sand,"'$300. (Laughter.) What was this for? Egad, I suppose this- sand was for drying the writing on the 300 quiros of paper. (Laughter.) Now. fellow citizens, how much sand do you suppose $300 would purchase? Why, it wunld purchase at least one-half of Coney Island. [Laughter.] 1 need not pursue the Inquiry auy further ; everything is iu the same way. Let us look, however, at one or two more items. 1 obacco and snuff, $584 17. [Laughter.] Now, I am as willing as any man to support the poor, and provide for them comfortably ; but when the locofocos come to charge nearly $600 for snuff and tobacoo for the use of the paupers, I think, gentlemen, it is all stuff. [Laughter.] ? Let us go ou a little further. " Wine, brandy, and beer, $3,153 81." This sum expended for braudy. wine and beer for the paupers ! Well, gentlemen, I suppose this sum went to cheer the disconsolate hearts of the puupcrs. But do you believe that they received it .' or, if they did receivo it, that it was proper I to give it to them ? When items like these I stare us in the face, is it not time to enquire how | they have been expended .' Well, suppose we go a little further.~What comes next, " $300 for feed." Here, after , charging us pretty roundly for " beef," "pork," " (lour," ' medicine and surgical iustrumcutss."'tiiey charge us $300 for "feed." (Laughter.) And what Is this " feed" for ? One would suppose that the paupers had been | pretty well led rrom tne otlier items. Out it appears iney I were not?and to make up the deficiency $300 in insurtj ed. Gentlemen, this la all nonsense ; this item is merely | filled in to stop a gap. Another iteui is $80 for hoard ut I Blackwell's Island ; I never knew tliut Black well's Island I was a fashionable boarding place- In the nume of God ! who went to board there ? Can you, Aid. Benson, inform us. fur 1 believe you are the oldest member of the board. | (Laughter from ull sides of the room.) But I should have thought that if any persouhad hoarded there, that I the amount of his board would have boon credited to j the city, (inasmuch as it is city property, and not debited; but it is not so. But I have it?that $8t) was for the board of Murphy, and the others who came down last fall, and voted the loeofoco ticket; and you. (addressing the chairman.) Alderman Beuson, was the man who discovered it ; (Alderman Benson here laughed.) utid I suppose the sumo gentlemen will come into the city on Tuesday next, to endeavor to vitiato the choice of the peoptu, in selecting their municipal officers for next year. The next item is "board for sundry persons, $381." Who those sundry persons are does not appear, but wo muy reasonably suppose that they are good and true locofocos. 1 would continue to extract further from this precious document, if time permitted ?but I trust I have shown sufficient to prove that the goveruincut of this city could not be in worse hauds than it is at present. Mr. Talmadge then appealed to the whigs of New York to oust au administration that conducted the atfairs of the city iu the manner set forth in the Comptroller's report, and concluded amid much a|>|uauiir. Other speakers addressed the assemblage, but wo runnot possibly make room for their remark* to-day. Knthuiitiwtlc Gathering of the Native*. Pursuant to a call, the natives assembled last j evening, at their head quarters, to respond to the i nominations of E. G. Drake for Mayor, and John Li.oyd for Alms House Commissioner. 13cfore the hour for organising the meeting had arrived, the spacious hall waserowded to excess, each appeuriug full of enthusiasm and ready for battle. Chaki.es Dkvok, Esq., ex-Alderman of the 17th ward, was called to the chair, while each w ard was fully represented in the way of Vice Presidents, Secretaries, &c. The report of the nominating committees was then read bv Major W. L. Prall. David E. Wheeler, Esq., in compliance with a general call, came forward and addressed the vast assemblage as follows : ? KeUow-eitixons :?It is hardly fair to bring a wounded man into the Held of battle; nevertheless, in a good cause a mau, even if wounded, may light und accomplish a little. We have come here aguin for the purpose of seeiug if there is in this mas* still remaining a drop of Aniericau blood. We have come thcre to-night, to doc if amid all the turmoil and Htrife of party, we ran still raise the American flag and nupport it. We have come here to-night to see if the macs of men who reside in this great city will approve of the nomination of E. G. Drake for Mayor, also whether that gentleman shall have a (lenerui hv his side to take care of the Door as well as tho I rich, und it remain* for you to say whether that shall be I so or not. As I hare been called upon to address you, permit me to say a word or two relative to the candidates presented for your consideration and supnort. Mr. Drake is a man whom you ull well know, and perhaps it would be ' insulting you. were I to say who lie Is. I would, however, | say. that Mr. Drake was one of the men who went into the : City Hall under our banner, and penult me to say that no man occupied a seat in the Common Council with more ability than he did. None performed their duties moro faithfully than him. At the head of the most important committees, he labored incessantly aud efficiently to free us, in some measure, from our present overburdened taxation, and wheu called upon to surrender to the people that office which they had given, he did so with the satisfaction of kuowing that he had saved to the citizens of New Vork thousands aud thousunds of dollurs. [The arrival of thu hliiltller club was here greeted with three hoarty cheers, on the subsiding of which Mr. Wheeler proe.eeded.] Mr. Drake, after he had left tin place, which he had tilled with so ranch honor to hlmscll retired, as it were, to private life, yet not without observing. with a watchful eye, all that has been going on in our city affair* , and I will tell you one fact, which 1 now call to mind. Mr. Drake came into my office, one T day. and inquired of me whether I was nwttre that the i Board of Supervisors had passed a resolution to the of; feet, that the holders or owners of United States ) stock should not be charged with a tax upon it? at. tha same time expressing ills opinion that Lnited States ' stock, as held by rich men. should be taxed as much at i any other property, aud wrote an able article on the subI jcet, which wait published, and sent to all the r Supervisors. Mr Brady, at the next meeting of the Board moved a reconsideration of the resolution, and every i member, with one exception, voted for it. The consoquence was that Mr. llrady was lauded in all the whig papers for what he had accomplished, when in fact. Mr ) Drake was the inan to whom the bnuor was due. the cari vying out of Mr. D.'a views being the only great act that 1 Mr. B has done since he went into the t oinmon (dun ell. 1 therefore ask you fellow-citizens which innu shonk i lie voted for under such circumstances' Now i say that ) one item of fact to winch 1 have alluded t" demonstrate: I the fitness of Mr. Drake to fill the office of mayor. Nov for Mr. Lloyd?he has always lived amongst us. uud hat I been long known and favorably known as au Amerl t can citizen and soldier, ana if wc ulnctcd him t< 1 the office of Alms House commissioner as Americans t lie will protect yourselves, our wives, uud our cbil t dren He will uot only do It civilly, but milita r rlly ; aud if we are invaded by a forcigu "toe. he, as at t American, in feeling, in hourt, would go forth to buttb t as a native of otto of the old thirteen colonies, aud d> credit to himself. Now what have wc to do Nothlnj s but to go manfully to the polls and vote fo s the men that we have nominated, and when w 1 have the right ineu in office, there is nothing to fca 9 but we shall soon reap the benefit of it .My friends, c did not come here to make a speech. I had no intcntloi of doing so ; but. as I am now before you. permit me ti i- allude to II I bought which has presented itself to in; y mind. Within twelve short months from this time c whatever may happen to you or me, a sufficient uuinbe: J of voters w ill he brought from foreign eouutrles to inak n seven new independent BtatM. With our preaen e forebodings on litis subject, we are led to luquirc what 1 in lu-eoiiii- i.r im wlmt. is in In eiiiiie of our labor in ir norm it Intlon, our liard working merhnnlcs? Ou tho subject c 1 liilior we have heard a great U''iil until alxiiit protection t y the working classes. .Now. I would ask the ntechanli e the day tnborer, It' we are toluivo xt.lHMt foreign laborer i- come to thin and the adjoining cities within the tie* w* twelve months, w hut in to he llje price of your labor!

An incident of lore for country la recorded in Holy Writ: I allude to the patriarch Jacob, who called upon his sons to curry him track to the land of hit fathers. where he wished to die and he buried. This, however. is not the time nor the occasion to dwell upon this subject, or the principles of the party to which wu be- , long. We have met here to speak and act en- | tirely upon matters that belong exclusively to our own !

city. We hare a Mayor. Alms House Commissioner and ; Common Council to elect next week. There hare been ; presented for your suffrage the names of the candidates 1 selected. For Mayor. Mr. Drake, of the 8th ward, has j been nominated: he who. as u member of the Common i ( ounril. two or three years ago. took measures to reduce taxation to a very large amount: and had lie been permitted to have remained in the Board for a longer period, he would have saved thousands upon thousands of dollars. We have also an Alms I House 'nininissioiier to elect, and on this subject allow I me to enquire what is the condition of the Alms House ? I Is it not filled with foreign paupers? Are .not the InI mates of the Alms House and Penitentiary almost wholly ; of foreign birth, and while they should not exceed ono | fifth of the whole. Almost all the cities, towns, and vH! lages abroad are sending their paupers, here, aud thus : Increasing your already over-burdcu taxation. Indeed. the expenditures of this city alono. oxeeed any entire I state In the Union, with the exception of three This is had enough in nil conscience, without having the pau ! ] pers and criminal* Kent hy thousand*, to support.? | Now. gentlemen, wo want reform in this department. , and if we can but elect our candididate*. we 1 shall have It. In alluding to this. I would have you bear I in mind, one fact?tho Native Common Council on tho : day of election shut the door of the Alms House so that the pauper* could not come out to vote without receiving their discharge, and preferring the loaves'and fishes to the privilege of voting on that day. they kept , withlu. Tut General Lloyd at the head of the Alms House Department and ha will keep them straight. I would. In conclusion, remark, that we may suffer a temporary defeat but 1 know in my heart that we are right, and being right, we shall eveutually prevail. When the revolution broke out we had our defeats at Lexington and Bunker Hill, aud for seven long years our fathers struggled on. until at last there woe a Saratoga and a Yorktown victory. Ho we shall close it up in the end Now. you huve read of tho i American army on the plains of Mexico. There Oon. Taylor, at the head of 6000 men. has defeated 20.000. aud I trust 6000 men in New York will prove themselves a match for 20.000 also. I say we shall nave a Buena Vista yet. and our 6000 men will yet work wonders. Wo want hone of the chicken-hearted. No man is good for anything who will leave us on account of a temporary defeat. * * ? After a few further remarks of eucourngement to remain firm to the American republican party. Mr. Campbell offered the following resolutions. winch were unanimously adopted :? Resolved, That, us American Republicans, we regard with feeling* of deep emotion the heroic and patriotic , conduct of Mnjor General Zachary Taylor. That In the battles which he lias won. and in his correspondence and ] despatches, we have the best evidence of his capacity, and he seems to unite in an eminent degree the characters of hero, patriot, and statesman. Resolved, That we behold in him the embodiment of genuine American principle* : and we do horeby nominate him for the high ofllce of President of the United Htates, and we do most earnestbr recommend to the Convention. which assembles at Pittsburg next mouth, to present his name to the Americnn Republicans throughout the Union for their support. I have but a word or two to tuty. In modern times, no man has come up to the sphere of action, or who has distinguished himself as Gen. Zacliary Taylor did In his battles at Buena Vista and Montery. He has given a character to American arms all over the world. ' and while he has distinguished himself in so high a degree as a soldier, his despatches and writing s have shown that he not only understands fighting, but also diplomacy. That he will be our next President I have not the slightest doubtr the people have taken mm up.una ins eiocuun wuuiu iuioouj uai> in a groat measure, the old party landmarks. _^nil 1 therefore trust under such auspices. that he will be spared to preside orer this great nation. Dr. Bk*j. C. Di'tchvr next addressed the meeting, and was succeeded by (Jen. Lloyd; but we are unaroida- i bly compelled to omit their remarks, at tho close of I which the meeting ndjournod. and proceeded to tho \ house of iMr. Drake and gave him throe cheers, and tho j same in the front of the Astor House nod American Hotel. . | Theatricals. P.ikk Thkatrk.?The new comedy of "Ernestine," j on its third repetition last evening, was listened to with I renewed interest, and greeted with the warmest applause. It was on tho whole well sustained, ^id the piece i exceedingly well written. The lan^nge is ! chaste and pointed, and the scenes spirited and effective ?there is no strainiug after effect, but the plot is clearly > and naturally developed?the humor is quiet, but felt? mid there is much pathos here aud there pervading the piece. The deep sensibility and filial devotion of Ernestine. the pique and jealousy of the young wife Juliette, the simplicity and innocence and gay spirit of Marie, the manly, generous and feeling nature of the Viscount, and the sober, high minded and constant lover, Charles, were all happily drawn forth iu this captivating piece. Wallack iu Frederick, the lover first of every body, and at : last of Marie, was in his element?he was all life and ! brilliancy?a coxcomb, thoughtless, vain aud dissipated. I sacrificing his character and fortune to his pleasures ; with few redeeming virtues except good nature, wit aud ! a gny and reckless humor, the enemy, however, of nobody but himself, and with all his vices aud follies able to lovo ; : aud appreciate innocence and delicacy and tenderness in woman?such is Frederick?and it was most spiritedly aud gracefully played by Wallack.

At the second board, it fell off X per cent from prices current in tho morning, and there appeared to bo plenty of sellers at the decline. The movements In foreign exchango have been, within the past few days, to a moderate extent. We quote bills on London at 4>? a 6 pur cent premium ; on Paris, 0f. 46 a Of.

So far till* month they hare been almost quadruple that of last, notwithstanding the lateness of the seai son. The depot of this company exhibits a very busy appearance, and looks much different to what It dtd a year or two ago. Under the administration of John H. ! Drykers, Ksq., the president of this company, Its affairs arc rapidly emerging from the embarrassments with which they hnvc for a long time been surrounded. Wp are decidedly In favor of n change in the direction of this company, but as decidedly opposed to any change In the presidency. Wo arc not much In favor ojf Wall street influence, but if the present president comes under that head, that Influence is much better than it U generally supposed to be. It is very easy to construct or exteud a railroad when the resources of the company arc ampin; but when a company is cramped for money, when It has a strong opposition to contend ngaiust. when It is all np ' hill .work, it requires a man of more than ordinary onor: gy and perseverance, to carry it successfully through. The stockholders of this company, those who hold for a i permanent Investment, will one of these days give Mr. Dykcrs a v u^t deal of credit for the judgment and energy he has exhibited lu the management of the financial and other affairs of the company. Horeafter the road will progress npon Its own merits; but It has passed through many a flerv ordeal, and no msnhas contributed J more to plaoe it in Its preeont position than the present president.
