NEW YORK HERALD. N?w York, Tutidmy, NoTtuibrr 91, IMV< Korclfii Icwi. We may receive two weeks later news from Europe some time to-day. The Caledonia is in her fourteenth day, and due at Boston. Tht (election To-Day. Th? political forces of the State of New York have been marshalling and parading for some time past, and to-day will witness the clash of arms, the triumph of one party, and (he defeat of A. -.1 uir uiuci. We have already given the list of the candidates of all parties in the State. We, therefore, merely republish the city, and the lea ling nominations. We are prepared to see the whigs poll a stronger vote than they have done in a number of years. They will put forth their whole strength, with the hope of crushing the divided forces of their opponents. But we shall see. Those who have a vote should deposit it one way or the other; hut examine your ticket before you drop it into the box. The right of suffrage is an inestimable privilege, and was purchased at a dear price. The result of the election will be given in tomorrow's Herald. TO* PmI Oflloe Department?Its Head or Tall. Amidst the many curiosities which character,se the present Post Master General, there is one advantageous point in which he ought to be viewed. His blunders, his narrowness of mind, his illiberality, his peevishness and his sublime inefficiency, may all tend to bring about a new system in this important department of the government, which would be an acceptable boon to the people of this country. We ought, therefore, to be thankful for the incompetency of the present j Post Master General. Every Sunday morning, when we kneel at church,we ought to remember him in our prayers. Kvery Saturday night, when we squeeze a sixpence or a shilling out of the wages of an apprentice or tmployie, we ought to offer up our homage to the principles and admin- i istration of the Post Master General, When we consider all these brilliant traits of character, ho capable of shining as they do shine where they ought, in the lower regions of the world of politics, we should be thankful to the head of the Post Office Department, as to an individual calculated by his conduct to bring about a thorough change in the whole system of mind communicating with mind, in this vast republic. If the present Postmaster General had been a John McLean, or a Frank Granger, or an Amos Kendall, or even a Barry, we might still b? compelled to continue the miserable system, because it would be, at least, skilfully administered. But in the present state of the Post Office Department, there is no remedy but a radical change, and the adoption of new principles and new arrangements, adapted to the present age. What should prevent the Congeess of the United States from sweeping away the rubbish of the existing Post Office Department, and cs tablishing in its stead a complete electrotelegraphic system, by which mind would be able to communicate with mind in an instant of time, and at as cheap a rate as is now done between New Orleans and New York! When a Persian king first established post routes in that ancient empire, three thousand years ago, it was at that time as great an effort of improvement as the establishment of an electro-telegiaphic system would be in the present day. Since the present electric system has been adopted, we have seen its advantages, notwithstanding that it is defective, imperfect and creeping, as it were ; yet its results are most astounding upon the affairs of social, commercial, and political life.? Each day we publish full intelligence, in every department, of all that may have taken place the previous day, either at Petersburg or Washingion, or Cincinnati or Buffalo or Boston; comprehending an extent of many thousand miles. Just so it would be possible to embrace the whole Union in a line of telegraphic communication, and to establish a rate of postage by such a mode, even cheaper than that under the old system of communication used by the Post Office Department. Bulky communications might be sent in the ordinary way ; but the cream of thought, from all parts of the country, both private and public, might be communicated from the remotest points, with the speed of lightning. No doubt such a proposition, so comprehensive in its views, would startle such a person as the present head of the Post Office Department. The man who would throw the mails in confusion between the great commercial cities, in order to save a few hundred miserable dollars, would throw obstacles in the way of any change, or any reform, in the system of the republic.? But we trust that a liberal and enlightened Congress will overcome such miserable, such picaynn? mananrnmanf Wliuf la flip nao nf nrnvprn. v' 6V*V,M ment, if it is not able and is not disposed to give to the people a system adapted to the present civilization of the country1? Shall a few thousand, or hundred thousand, or even millions of dollars, be thought worthy of being put into the balance, in comparison with the advantages accruing from cheapness and speed in the intellectual and commercial communications of the republic? We trust that Congress,which will soon meet, will take up this matter, and give the country the reform which is wanted in this department. For the last few years we have been going backwards, sinking, narrowing, trifling with the improvements of the age. A more melancholy exhibition of folly has never been exhibited in any department of the government than that which we have Been exhibited in the post office department. While we give due credit, nay even high credit, to Messrs Buchanan and Walker, for their talents in their departments; while we entertain a good opinion of the motives and character of the Preaident himself, we cannot but condamn the policy of the postmaster-general as the meanest, the most disgraceful, the most contemptible, that ever dishonored the country. London Lkttirs to New York.?A great deal oi ridiculous alarm has been created by some extracts of letters published in the newspapers, said to have been written by some of the London financiers; one in particular, attributed to Horsley Palmer, who was formerly .in this city, in which he predicted some terrible catastrophe to take place in the following week in London. We do not apprehend any auch calamity as hat* been predicted by theae alarming lettera. Horaley Palmer ia frightened. He aeea aome of the old London houaea which have been *stabliahed tor half a century, break to pieces around him, and thinks, therefore, that the day of judgment ia approaching, and the end of the world is at hand. The truth ia, any peraon might have seen theae conaequencea, had he been willing to open hia eyea to the atate of society in London. Not many months ago we publicly predicted the terrible revulsions which are now taking place, and atated poaitively, that all the great commercial and financial houaea of Europe, including the governmenta, were totally rotten, and only stood until some great revolution took place which would destroy the credit system of all. The great commercial credit of London ia gone. The Bank of England, fortunately, waa organized a few yearn ago on principles which will suatain it for come years to come?but the great commercial and financial houses in London are all rotten to the core, and have been so L for years. ia not the railroad mania?it ia not he free trade lawa^it ia not the famine, which i # \ i , 1 ' ?tjy-[ havq produced the result* that hpve taken place, ! although they may have accelerated tliein. The real cause ol the failures iu London may i be attributed to the social system there,by which merchants lute at an expense beyond their incomes, and have done so for years past. An an ual expenditure ot ^'10,000, on an income ot #7,500, will not last long. John Van Birkn and thk Barnburners.? i ' John V'sn Buren is brightening up. He is even ! better than a chip of the old block?he is a chip \ I ol the old block in u state of ignition, and suri rounded by electrical fire, tiis father, the ve- ' l nerable ex-President, of Kinderhook, never disI played the wit, the sarcasm, the piquancy, the point, that young John does. If the quarrel between the old hunkers and the barnburners produced no other good result, it has proved and satisfied us that John Van Huren bids fair to be one otthe wittiest and most sarcastic politicians -f ?l. ?!? i - j i. <1 a*.*.. ui mc ua) aii uiipoittic auu iu inc uimcu olairn. John has always been a remarkable fellow ; full of tact and of the world's knowledge. He has travelled much in Europe, kissed the fair hand of Queen Victoria, danced with royalty, and waltzed with German princesses at HadenBaden. He is now taking a different direction, and exercising his genius for the barnburners, in a most remarkable and curious way. He is the redoubtable Barnum of the New York democracy, and moves his men as Barnum does Tom Thumb. We care nothing for the course of the factions; but John throws light on their movements, which are almost as amusing as the shilling sights of the American Museum, in Broadway. We have old politicians, full of tact, of wise saws and modern sentences ; but in the political world, they are like Punch and Judy, and all by the magical hand of John Van Buren. John's last speech is a gem of its kind. We give it in another column. He shows up Mr. Ritchie, of Washington, in a most ludicrous light; he joins issue w?th Croswell, of Albany, and makes them botli show their faces around the ring until the spectators are ready to burst their sides with laughter. Since the time of John Kandolph of Roanoke, we have seen no one in politics that has bid fair to wear his mantle but John Van Buren of New York. Of course, the track of John leads not to the Presidency. It is too witty, too sarcastic, too joyous, for such a sober direction ; but if he goes on in the course which he has marked out, he will attain a fame and a name far superior to those which his cold, philosophical, selfish and calculating father ever could acquire. We would willingly contribute five hundred dollars to make :up a purse in order to keep John Van Buren in a minority for ever. IIow much will you go, Mr. Ritchie 1 Interkstno From Oreoon.?The following letters were received by yesterday's mail. It will be perceived that the legislative assembly of Oregon have approved of Wilkes* project for constructing a railroad to connect the eastern and western shores of our huge country Onicaoit City, April 14, 1847. Dk.ar Sir 1 received your communication of the 14tb February, 184tf, asking my assistance to prooure a petition in this region, in ?vor of a national railroad from a point on the Missouri River to the Pacific coaat, and also a pamphlet containing your views on that subject; which I regret to say, had been detained in California until a very few days since. in anticipation, however, ofithe influence a petition from the citizens here, might have, so soon as I learned through the newipapers of the exis tenoe of your project, I wrote two or three short communications whioh were published in the Oregon Svrctalor, calling on the oltizena to send a delegate to Washington, with the very petitions you ask me for, and to superintend our interests generally. In aooordance with these views, a convention was neld at Oregon city shortly afterwards, but the short-sighted policy and jealousy of the leaders of our foreign population, prevented, as has been tho oase before with other important measures, this very praiseworthy object. At the Catholio ohuroh, on the Sunday previous to the meeting, they threw into it, by previous arrangement, sufflolent influence to smother all attempts at the election of a delegate, or the sending of a memorial from the people. The Legislature,however, sends by the bearer of this (Colonel Wm. Kinley,) a petition embracing the object yon bad in view, and which I hope may prove satlslactory, as it is now too late to send yoir by the return emigration, even for the next Congress. Your plan is practicable and meets my warmest approbation. I should be happy to be instrumental in forwarding it in any way, and will always be at your oommand I am very respectfully, Your obedient Bervant, M M. McCARVER. Okorok Wilkes, Esq., New York City.

Yet for want of ships to carry thia to market, wheat la only disposable in exchang for merchandise (exorbitantly overvalued) at the nominal sum of from 60 to BO cents the bushel; and the lumber is lying atacked up at our ahip yarda for want of voaseia to carry it to market. Oui aystem now is prompt payment, In oaah or wheat. All the ships now engaged in our trade, will carry freight only for their owners, finding that course more profitable than to produce competition in their mercantile trade, by freighting for the citiaena. I beapeak your influence with the ship ownera and merchants, to the end that we may have relief from our present embarrassments. I am, 8cc., M. M. McCAllVER.

As iti first recaptlun waa brilliant and enthusiastic, id *u thla, Its second performance, greeted with sack marks of approbation aa muit be grateful to the artist* We seldom, If ever, listen to strains mora grand, sad and eiprsaslve, than those performed in this opera; none that fall more swsetly on the ear, with "their melancholy and touching cadences?none that sank more plaintively and atlectlngly on the heart?none that mora awaken a deep sensibility, while they absorb and elevate the soul. The Lucre zia of Madame Blahop is a noble, impassioned, piece of aoting; the transitions of feeling were just and powerful, and frequently bad an electrical effect on the audience She drew down sympathy for her profound wretobednesi. though steeped, herself, in crime and degradation. It waa a fine display of her powers asau actress, nor lesx so of her greater powers as a singer Pure in intonation, sustained lu tone, brilliant in effects, perfect in execution, she brought all her energies and talents to this part, and stamped on it a deep interest and irresistible charm it never oefore possessed on our boards. Valtellina and Reeves sang their music with great freshness of voice, energy and spirit) and the noviciate. Mdlle. Macfarren, made a favorable Impression. Chubb presided over the orchestra with skill, and the chorus and scenic decorations deserve praise. The curtain fell amidst the reiterated bravi of the boxes, and the triumphant acclamations of the whole houie. 'I.ucreiia" is to be repeated this evening. Bow r? THrtTic.?Mr. Clarke, one of the beet, If not the beat, actor on the stage of the Bowery, and one of the moat deserving an be Is decidedly the most popular, will take a benefit at that establishment this evening, and will, we are satisfied, receive a compliment that he will have reason to be proud of. Apart from his merits as an actor, we question If the house, Urge as it Is, will be able to hold Mr. Clarke's Innumerable friends on this occasion The bill includes Heakspeare's tragedy of ''Macbeth"?Maobeth, Mr. Marshall; Macduff, Mr. Clarke; and the favorite drama of "Murrell, the Land Pirate." During the evening, Mr. Willis will perform a grand cavatlna; Mr. Chanfrau will give his Imitations, and Professor Jacobs will perform several airs on the accordion. Chatham Thkatrf?We mast bear witness to Miss Valise's grace and agility in the ballet of the "Uiselle.' ' She certainly appears to great advantage in that character, and receives muoh commendation from all who see her In It. Barney Williams is a capital representative of the Irsihman. He has an excellent and thorough knowledge of his singularly mixed charaoter, and can portray its sunshines and its showers in a very happy manner. The "Giselle" will be repeated this evening? that piece, "Teddy the Tyler," and the oomio opera of the '-Bronze Horse," in which Mr. Da.Bar will personate Rats, the Chinese itinerent barber, are all included in the programme. We learn from the bill that Mr. Kletcherkhas a variety of novelties in preparation. Ciacus? Bowcav Amphithkatre.?To-night, John ( oasln, the king of merrymen, again appears on his old stamping ground at the cirous, and he will be assisted by his friend, Donaldson, who says that Oossin is his ~-l_ ll?? l? tr-lnn Th.n I. no doubt they are a pair of originals, and the audience to-night will nave an opportunity of judging cf the truth of their assertions, as to their powers of fun. Betides all this, there will be the usual variety of horsemanship, danoing, singing, tight rope, Vc. Ciihty'i Minitrkls.?To-night the politicians will be all agog to know the strength of their respective parties, as will be shown by the election returns; now oould either party count on as full a vote as Christy's Minstrle* obtain from this city, there would be no diffloulty whatever In oarrying out their views. The fact is, tney aru carrying all the musicians along with them, and nothing oan stop their onward course. This evening they give one of their usual raoy entertainments. Kthioi'ean Skrknaders.?These philosophic darkies are fairly launched on the sea of publio favor, and nightly obtain solid proofs of the manner in which they are appreciated. Major Dumbolton is decidedly a splendid manager of a splendid company, and we have only to regret that the long and frequent calls made upon them to fulfil their engagements in Philadelphia, Baltimore anh Washington, obliges them to leave us at the end oi this week; but as they are forced to go, we advise every one to attend their conoerts this week. To-night one of the best bills of the season will be given. Grand Concert ok Heht. and Sivoiu.?These two unrivalled artists have united their great talent to treat us this evening with a grand musical soiirt, though they have eaoh one, individually, talent sufficient, we should think, to satisfy any audience, yet they have thought better to create a greater attraction by giving a conoert such as, perhaps, never before was projeoted in our city. The music selected, it will be seen, offers fair specimens of the compositions of the new and regular sohool. We shall have the "Melancolie," by .iivnri; a tf.n'hum on l'Kobert le Diable," by K?"op. thi celebrated violouoclcellist; variations on "Noruia," by Henry Herz, and a grand duo for violin and violoncello, oalled -'Souvenir de Rossini," exeouted by Sivori and Kuoop. In the second part, Mr. Heri will introduce one of the new instrument)* from bis factory in Paris, which has been awarded the first price of honor at the last national fair of Kranoe. Upon this piano, M. Herz will execute "La I'Mtoritle," and the "Last Hose of Hummer." one of the brigiiest gems of his ravishing compositions. After this, there will oome off a "Grand trio Conoertant," by Myseder, whose music will be rendered by tile artiftH, who have arranged the entertainment. The whole will oon elude with the universally admired "Carnaval de Venise " Mrs. Otto will sing twioe. Last, though not least, Signor Rapettl will lead an excellent orchestra.? If the lovers of music find nothing in this variety to suit their taste, they must be hard to please No doubt this musical performance will be witnessed by as many dilettanti as can be contained wi thin the walis of the 1'abernacle. Mr. Dempster's Ballad Soiree.?Mr. Dempster had another good house at the Tabernacle laut evening. The ballads which he sung on this occasion were agreeable little pieces, and were received with great applause. There are many who prefer this kind of entertainment to almost any other, and to such, the Scottish songi which Mr. D. sings with suoh characteristic grace, are a real treat?to many of them these choicn little gems come up as a voice from home, and bring with thrm ansooiations wbioh make them doubly grateful to the ear. ''The Spot where I was born,'' " John Anderson my Jo,'1 " A Man's a man for a' that," the ' Lament of Jie Irish Emigrant," and other pieces of the same kind, ar? always sure to tell with the audiences which assemble tc hear them sung. The sad but beautiful song of " Th? May Queen" is always listened to with the most profound interest, and during the recital many a glistening eye may ks observed among the hundreds which art directed towards the songster. Mklodcons.?1The negro minstrelsy at this plaoe ol amusement, Is very good, and the proprietor is doing a safe business Monti, A?tiiti.j.-This is the last night but four ol these pleasing performers, and the receipts are to be for the bene tit of the company. Let them have a good one. They give sixteen splendid groups. Raymond & Waring's menageries, united, are at Pittsburg, I'a ; Herr Dtiesbach, the Lion King, is with them. CUjr Intelligent-*.

After mak ing several efforts to place the vane in the position he seemed to desire, down he came, and with a nimble ness that the Jack tar might envy, on reaching trrra firma, off he started, and was closely pursued by officer Martin, 7th ward, and citizens, when, after a sharp run ol several blocks, he was captured. He had ona shirt, drawers, hat and boots, and was taken to the station house by the officer. Ha could give no aocount of what occurred, and stated that he " felt is il he had been hard at work."

It appear* that the lad, named Philip Isaaos, only eleven Tears old. had for along time been in the habit of playing truant from hi* school in Ludlow street. The principal of the school had remonstrated with him in Tain, and had seme time Bince given over the um of severe | measures. endeavoring, if possible, to reclaim him by I kindneea; hia father, however, had told him that if he | did not attend aohool he would place him on board a man of war; notwithstanding this had theeffeot to keep htm at his poet for a few days, it was only a temporary effeot, for he was yesterday brought up for discipline on , the old charge, and his teacher told him to go into a | claas room where he would soon follow, as he wanted to talk to bim. Moon after this a claas of boys went into the room to recite, but soon came running out as if half 1 frightened out of their wits. And no wonder the little I feilcwH were soared, for on going into the room, the superintendent diseove:ed the lad Isaacs laying on abeneh with a large gas'i in the side of his neck and throat, from whioh he had bled so profusely, as to be almost exhausted. The floor was covered with gore. A surgeon was immediately called, and it was at first thou ght that the wound would lueviably prove fatal, but an examination proved, that although the incision had reached and severed the superficial vein, the jugular was not injured. Hopes are. therefore, entertained that he may recover. It appears that he had borrowed the knife of one of his companions, and for this very purpose, for he refused one, saying that it was not sharp enough for what he wanted. He seems to have none to work very deliberately, having i opened hi* shirt at the collar, laid down upon a bench, and so placed his bead that the blood should run dear of his clothes. In fact, a mora deliberate act of the kind is not recorded in all the history of suicidal transactions. Common Conncll, Board ur Aldkhm**, Not. 1.?Morris Franklin, Ksq , President, in the chair.

Bear Sir My attention was called to the flattering notice you were plenst'd to innke of my battery of light r mouoted artillery, whioh took a part in the grand pa. radeand Drocession on the 19th October: uoon which squad the honor was conferred bj (ieneral Storms, of being placed on the left of the First Division of Artillerj. You will please allow me to make a correction in your statement In your article of the 'JOth October, you say: " We understand that Captain Thistle is under orders to proceed to the seat of war with all possible haste.1' You have been led into an error in this respect, as I I am under no orders,and do not belong to the service of the United States. The Battery you were pleased to make so favorable a mention of is my own private property, and was got up aocordiDg to my own views, as tUe most effectivo means of defenoe and attack of the Mexican guerillas, in their mountain fastnesses ; as the guns, carriage* and ammunition can alt be carried on the backs of mules or horses, wh> rever tbese robbers and cutthroats are likely to annoy a passing train It is true I offered my services to the Ooverninent to raise a thousand men forthwith, t? serve during our difficulties with Mexico, and proceed at once to the seat of war. Thll offer was not aocepted, it not being " consistent with the arrangements of the department to receive into the service the regiment " that I proposed raising In consequence of the numerous questions, and the cu nosuy vAoueu among me uuumry, an wen an ciuzeu? generally on the da; of the parade, and which amid the bustle aud contusion of the moment, I found it imposslbie to anawer in a satisfactory manner, I now proceed with your kind permission to give a very brief description of my battery and its intended use. The guns are ofbrass, No I carries a leaden oblong ball weighing four pounds, four rifle furrow* out in the bail, straps of lead coming over the large end and Oiling up the iurrows, making a smooth surftce, thus preventing the gaa from the powder giving a screw motion to the bail; when it leaves the muzzle of tba gun the strips ol lead drop from the ball the same as the patch from the ball of a rifle, the grooves take the atmosphere, which gives it the spiral motion with as much precision as if the gun was a rifle itself My fixed ammunition is composed of c?nister shot, as follows: No 1. seventy-two musket balls; No 2, one hundred and forty rifle balls; No .1, balls of sixty to the pound, two hundred and forty; No 4, one thousand buck shot Gun No. 1, weighs two hundred and seven pounds, and is three feet four inches long; No 2, weighs one hundred and thirty five pounds, aud is two feet four inches long, and carries fifty musket balls The guns are so arranged on saddles upon the horses back, that they can be elevlled or depressed and fired from their baoks in case of an emergency, every thing being sufficiently strong for that purpose KoP No 1, the oarriage and shafts,wheels and all included weigh only one hnndred and eighty-three pounds, but sufficiently streng for all praotioal purposes. Twelve muies, or uoraes, will carry my two guns and carriages, with all their outfits, and four nundred rounds of fixed ammunition, not averaging over 230 pounds to eaoh mule, including saddle. With such a train o, mounted artillery, I can travel over any mula path or broken road with ease, from thirty to fifty miles per day, If necessary. 8uch is a brief description of my new k._ -_J tli.M In nn /Imikt kn?
