r ~ - NEW YORK HERALD. I?w York, Monday, ??, 1841. SR. BENNETTS LETTERS FROM FIROPK. London, Auaun 2, 1847 The Rlrttldii In tinat Britain The Klatto* t?l Kr>in?iilM ot KngUud, Franc*, uul AXttcrK*. The 'hret- kingdoms are all in the midat of an a'.eciiun for the ne*t Parliament. Nearly one half of the next Houae of Commona ia already alact d, and tha remainder going to be. Laat week nearly all the electiona of London took place. I hava been much interested in comparing them to thoae of New York, and the United States. The general *ystetn of oonatituenta and candidates meeting face to face, ia different from oura in New York, but they are like aa twopeaathoae in the southern and weatern Statea. Here eve* ry canaidate canvasses ma aiatrici?spends ma own speeches?and tells his own story. Still they Jiave committees, cluba, and all the machinery of a popular canvass, as we have. They talk very much in Europe of the wild orgies of democracy in the United States; but ia point of order, regularity, and decorum, there is as much difference between a fpopular election 1a London and New York aa can be pouibly imagined?and all in favor of the latter city. We 0?n poll 00.000 votee in one day in New York, with le?a excitement, and more public order than they can luke 6000 in London. This is fact of | the two capitals?and the same may be said to a greater extent of the two nations. Such is the difference between the action of American democracy and British mouarchy. The correspond nts of the French journals are astonichrd at the publie order of an English election?how much more would they be at an American election, if they dared to speak the truthl Of the exact results of this election, no one can yet tell. Thus far it has been a surprise to all?extraordinary and puxzling in every point of view. The old tory party have been much cut i down?but equally singular to relate, already half a dosen of the member* of the whig ministry have loft their election. The principal element already developed ia the progress of popular principles, looking to the ballot and alrnoat universal Muffrage. O'Connor, the gre<it radical leader, hue defeated Ilobhouse, one of the minis teret for Nottingham. Liverpool, Birmingham, Edinburgh, &c lie., have shown a strong disposition lor more progress Indeed it is now aiid tnat the two old parties, whig and lory, have vii.ub?d for ever, and that the next House of Commons will present but two great element*? that of the "finality party," headed by Russell, with the old whig and tory aristocracy at his tail?and that of the movement with a hundred heads and no tail at all. The declarations of many of the new members are very democratic?favorable indeed to the monarchy as a pretty idea, represented in the peraon of Victoria, but terr bly hostile to the ariatocracy, either in land or money. Thompson, the famous abolition lecturer, once in the United States, ia elected by a tremendous majority for one of the diatricta in London. He ie thoroughly for the ballot and universal suffrage. It ia true that Lord John Russell is elected in the city, but it is said that he ia indebted to Rothschild, who is on the s me ticket, for this result. It is pomtively asserted ?26,000 have been expended by the Rothschilds in securing this result. Infect, corruption, the actual buying ano selling of vot's, exists almost in a complete stat* ot organization in many places?almost as much so as it does in the electoral system of Franoe Iu the city election here, it is said that the " 'long shore men," as they ure called, were bough) up by the friends of the great b inkera; at th rate of ?6 apiece to ?25 apiece, according to th' ir greedinects or avarice. Many of the districts, in v nous p*rtH of ttin empire, h^ve be?-n up tor sale to the highest bidder, and their agents have been peddling seats in the Common# for weeks all over the land. These facte have been stated in parliament and in the news r r ?*? "uu uvm/ Th?* whig and tory aristocracy, now joined by a portion of the great bunking and moneyed inureal, are opposed to all further reform, and have expected to organise a system of corruption for managing the 800,000 electors of this country, as the 200,000 of France are wielded This system has been growing and spreading for the last few years. It has been gradually bringing the two old factions of whig and tory together. The spirit of the age, in the shape of a further extension of the electoral franchise? of iree trade in land?of the vote by ballot?of separation of church and state?(he spirit of the age, in these forms, is gradually gathering force and organization?and a new party of progress will be thrown up in the next parliament, that will shake the aristocracy to the heart. When these ideas shall have become strong enongh fur action in parliament, there will be n coalition between the old landed aristocracy and the new mixed aristocracy to put down the reformers, and bribery and influence will be their principal weapons at the polls. This will be a great and a long struggle, for in England reform has terrib.e obstacles to overcome. As yet, England will go on for years in her present humdrum pace. 'Parliament will try to legislate away all their social evils?but all legislation will be fruitless to relieve the soaC 1 rol.n/4 nr onv nort nf fhrn in. v* *s^.u?.??, v. ?.?/ r-m * ~ ? try. The aristocracy maintain 300,000 servants?200,000 horses, 600,000 dogs, 100^000 grouse, and fiOO.OOO game of all kinds, nil to minister to their pride and pleasure. These men, beasts,land birds consume the food of idleness, which would feed the starving Irish and all others of the lower class. Here is the dangerous condition of England?a condition that is increasing in magnitude every year, and reaches a crisis whenever any of the crops fail. It is a social evil, which mere ordinary legislation cannot reach. The only natural avenue to a remedy is through* universal suffrnge and the ballot?but although this idea is developed stronger at the present efcetion than ever before, it is yet far from any point of success In a population of 27,000,000, which is nearly the number* of the three kingdoms, only about 800,000 are electors, while 48,000 persons hold all the avmAI 1*4* L;ii_ iouu vi mic cui|uic, mtiuuiu^ mvuiuaiuB, iiiui*9 i rocks, rivers, and moor*. The government alone ?laim a property in the eun and heavens above, and accordingly levy a heavy tax on the light of day.

The large najnber of steamboats ia and belonging to New York, excite* the surprise of all i-trangers who visit our city. Indeed, we question if our own old Knickerbockers, the descenI dautsof the very persons who first gave to our ' good city the cognom* a of New Amsterdam, and 1 who have grown with its growth and strengthenI ed with its strength, ina pecuniary respect, know the immense steamboat trade connected with New York. From a point in the bay, from whish a view can be obtained of the North and East Rivera, a J greater number of steamboat pipes can be seen, than perhaps in any other city of the world, while the number of boats shooting hither and thither, on the ferries, or going up or ooming down the two rivers, on voyages of business or pleasure, is amazing. We have often thought that a list of these evidences of the genius and enterprize of our people would be acceptable to our readers, and be valuable as a proof of the go-aheaditiveness of he Americans, when, as Davy Crockett advises, they know they are right. It is now forty years since ths Clermont, an experimental boat, built under the direction and superintendence of Robert Fulton, made an experimental trip by steam from New York to Jer- . sey City; a short voyage, to be sure, but long i enough to prove that Fulton's great genius had succeeded in the work he undertook. The Clermont was one hundred feet long, twelve feet wide, and seven feet deep. The engine was constructed in England by the firm of Watt Jt Bolton, and was brought by Mr. Pulton to the city of New York in the year 1806. Her hull was built by an eminent ship builder, Charles Brown, ancestor, we believe, of Mr. Brown, of the firm of Brown & Bell, shipbuilders, up town. On the second of October, 1807, the Clermont started on her first trip to Al* bauy, amid the jibes and hisses of a multitude of people, who assembled in the neighborhood of the I'laoe of herdeparture, to witness what they were pleased to term an exhibition of folly and madness. The rate of speed at which the Clermont made her first trip was three or four miles an hour; fast enough to show that Fulton's plans w re not so preposterous or absurd as the majority of the people considered them. The trial succeeded, and, as we have already said, the increase of steamboats in this harbor, from that time to the present, has been amazingly large. By an extract from the Panorama of the Hudson River, recently published by J. Disturnell, we are enabled to give n list, embracing all the pissage boats built and running o.) the Hudson river, between New York, Albany and Troy, sinoe the first introduction of steamboat navigation, by Fulton, in the ??? 1 mi t v* a liat r\f f ua avnlaninna tliu y COI tout, Wjiu a UDl VI IMW VAj'IVtlVUO IU| IUV name period.

On perusing this list the reader must be struck with the rareness of accidents on our river. It will be ecen that, for forty years past, there have been only four explosions on board of regular passage boats plying between New York, Albany and Troy, and very few other accidents. We doubt if the records of steam navigation in nny part of the world can compare with those of the Hudson river in this respect. There is a great number of boats plying on the Hudson, to ports intermediate between this city, Troy and Albany, which we may as well | give in proof of the great increase of eteamboats since the year 180?i?

It was amusing to see oorpulent " chunky" men, wlioee temper on ordl. | nary occasions it wen impossible to ruffle, making their > way over those sandbanks and (heaps of dirt, in ' the last warm weather, puffing and blowing?after oarrylng their orange-shaped bodies over one mountain of sand, they would congratulate themselves on their agility, when lo! at the next oorner they see another apparently as bUh as the Rocky Mountains and as difficult to climb Patience Is a virtue tbat fat men generally possess, but who oeuld be patient under these circumstances.
