Scott Th? ramarkable speech of Mr. CUy is beginning to produce the effects which we contemplated it would. Elsewhere in the columns of this journal, will be found two very important articles, copied respectively from the Neva York Courier and Enquirer, and the JV>v? York Tribun* Both these journals occupy a high rank as organs of the whig party in this metropolis, and they liave nowjoined issue on Mr. Clay'd noaition. in the shape and form that was expect ed. The friends ot Mr Clay and the friends of' ! Gen. Scott, are gradually separating and organi- ' ling themselves for different purposes and different results. JThe one means to support Mr. Clay for the next Presidency, and the other Gen. Scott, for the tame office. Tn*s? newspaper movements are much more important than they might appear at first sight. ' The daily press of New York m ty be considered the metropolitan press of the United States. In ! fact, there are only three cities in the civilized world where the daily press exists as a separate and independent power?London, Paris, and the city of New York.. In this country, the New York press, of course, takes the lead in every thing connected with public affairs, and in all descriptions of enterprise?in politics, commerc", and all other relations of civil life. In this view of th" matter, we consider the leading journals of New York to form a sort of permanent popular orjjan of public opinion, and possessing a power to siape, to organize, and give direction to Congress and the whole eoan'ry. The pronuntiamrmlo of '.ise Ctmrur and En^a?r?r, to o;?im Mr l&z ?ipoor". General Scott or Gexeri.. Ti'-f .x *2* national convention of vbt ? t f ;>tr:T rr.tr i* considered the ae?re fr.endi of General Scott .a tfew TTfr.ta ttf :te country. The sentiments i.u?rr.e ei;:ee?ec by that journal, in favor of Genera- Taylor for the Presidency, never meant much 1 nat movement was merely a preparatory warming of the bed for General Scott?un effort to organize public sentiment in favor of military glory, as an abstraction to be identified and personated by General Scott at the proper period. The Courier is the organ of that section of the whig party in New York, New Jersey uwiri Xam F.nolanrl. which has h^rn fnr Mimi tim*. decidedly in favor of General Scott for the next Presidency. A distinguished financier of Wall street, who has recently established an independent house, and who has just returned from Europe, forms, in connection with his friends, the nucleus of this new party within the circle j of the whig party, and will guide and control it up to the period of nomination. We are intimately tcquainted with the personal and private historv ?f nil the political movements connect- i ed with this prommmcimment* of Uie Courier; but it i;4 unnecessary to enter into any minute details, in which the pohlie kavs no concern, further th in to understood ih? Meaning ot the movement. Opposed to this, we fiad the New York Trihunt, with a large spction of the whig party in tiie city and State, determined, most likely, to support Mr. Clay and to advocate the policy which he lias pictured, at all hazards. This portion of the whig par*y, determined to support Mr. Clay, in this city, is undoubtedly much larger in the interior of New York than in the eity; but it is generally understood that in New Jersey and New England, Mr. Webster and all hiafrianda will unite with the friend* of General Scott, in order to procure his nomination for the Presidency. The ticket intended by the lYibunt party, we have understood, is Henry Clay for the Presidency, and Wm. H. Seward for the "Vice Preaidi-ncy?that by the other section, Gen. Scott lor the Presidency, and aome Southern or Weaiern man for the Vice Presidency, not yet determiued on by the secret committee <if New Jersey. These movements and disclosures are important. They are important, us giving direction to those even's on which the Mexican question and the presidential question may both be determined in this country. The manifesto of the friends of General Scott is certainly a atrong and eloquent production, almost denouncing Mr. Olay, for want of patriotism, in the p isition tnk?'n by him, and condemning all those who support him to the ostracism of the American people. Thus it ia that the elementa are already in mo tlor. il* iwa |vjrtiur*. eWcu thj ciiar try?wnat ahaiibe do a* with Mexico 1 *?i-wb# xa to b? our next praeidentl?are now opoo for diacuaaion and dobate throughout the land. Speak out, man and brethren. Szcxrr Mission or tub British Govebnmint ?Militia Lawk and Gamk Lawb.?We underatand ihat the British Government hare sent out to the different Consuls in this country, a set of enquiries in relation to the militia liws in each ! State, and the system of organizing volunteera, aa at present practised throughout the country. A curious anecdote has been told us on thi* sub* ject. One dciy, one of her Majesty's Consuls in a I oertain city down East, approached a State officer under whose superintendence, in some way or other, the militia laws coma; and pulling oil his hat, said, " I have been directed by iny government to make certain enquiries, and if the information ia agreeable to you to give, I ahould be heppy to obtain it." "Ah," replied the officer, " what is it 1" " I have been directed," reiterated theConaul, " to requeat from you a copy o'all the militia lawa in force in your State." " Indeed !" retored the State officer, with aaeniing astonishment; "1 will give you a copy of i l c j ?j i,.. j ?j M|I n?m uir?c mwi, iiuuiiu >uu irucicu uuu * >>, v? ?? condition." The Conaul expecting some stringent condition, replied that if it was in his power he would agree to any reasonable condition for a copy of the laws. " Well, then," said the State officer, " I will have these lawa bound, rilt and lettered, and will send them aa a present to Qu^en Victoria hernrlf, on o^ndition that your government r ad them over and tell me what they mean; for I ntver could find out what the devil the meaning of all our militia laws was." This enquiry, and the reply to it, are some indication of a certain atate of facta. The British government, and other governments in Europe, no doubt, hive been astoniahed at the military skill and heroic courage of our volunteer?, who have conquered Mexico the tecond time, in for I less time than Cortez did it. Thin is a mystery which is not understood in Europe. But the ! British government will look in vain iuto our militia l.?ws to discover the mystery which they ure so desirous to find out. We c*n, however, point out a mode of solution. If they will send out their agents, their consuls, and their minifters, upon our wide prairies, on to our sea shores, or over our mountains, they will find out that the skill of the American aoldier is owing more to our game laws, than to our militia laws.? Every yotith in this country, as soon as he la able to carry a gun, goes out into the woods and swamp#, and shoots whatever he pleases, at the proper sei^on. No individual interferes with them?tln-y xcorne good marksmen from their infancy?ihey understand engineering on asmall scale, from youth up. Again, look at our fire companies, and volunteer corps, as they may be seen every day parading our streets. We see them daily pass by our office, returning from some target excursion. And mark ! how the target is riddled by theae unerring marksmen! Yesterday was Thanksgiving day?and on that day alone, probably nearly 800 men, stout, strong, s-talwart fellows, were engaged, in different parte of the neighborhood, in target shooting. Here is the secret. The British government may search in vain ** ?!? lour* f Aiir fitlA. iUiU UUI UIIIUIII isno IUI IMW B?vtv? vi vut cesses in Mexico; but she will find it in our game laws. There are a general system in every Stata which merely protects the game for a reason, and, wlten the proper time has arrived, permits every one, without any distinction of birth or profession, to shoot as much as he pleases aud wherever he pleases. The source of all our victories is to be found resulting from our free institutions, from our independence, from the individual spirit of the nation, and not from any peculiar State legislation, which legislation is, in general, blundering, incoherent, multitudinous, perplexed and mystified, as well on the militia laws as on most other matters. Thanksgiving Day.?Yesterday was thanksgiving day in twenty-four States of the Union, and in those twenty-four States divine service was performed in the churches,after which, those who attended adjourned to their respective I homes, and ite their thanksgiving dinner, to 1 furnish which a melancholy number of turkies, 1 , geese, and chickens had to fulfil their destiny. In this city, all the churches were well attended, and all the minister > gave their hearers a sample of what they could do tn the way of serrnonisiog on extraordinary occasions. A great many of these sermonii, we are informed, touched upon the war with Mexico, which was cited by the authors as an evidence of the sinfulness of the age, and rather improperly, we thirk. If we estimate the amount of sin in the world, lor the least half century, by the number of wars within the flame period, and compare it with other agts of the world, even since the rise of ! Christianity, we should have a large balancc in our favor at the present time. If, on the other h%nd, we compare the number of ministers we had in former times with the increased number we now have, and estimate the sinfulness of the ; world in the same proportion, a large balance would be made out against us at the present age. I The time was when a minister was content to ; live on two or thre? hundred dollars a-year ;but ; now-a-days, they would starve on any thing less than a* many thousands. We, above all people in the world, ought to be pious?for we pay enough for it. In proportion I to our numbers, the people ot the United States i>av more for the article than nnv other nronlp in the world. Between supporting minister* and churches, we pay about five millions of dollars per annum, in h^rd cash, without counting the interest of the original investment. John Qt'iNcy Adams, and other Vagaries.? Rumors arc afloat that the sage of Qoincy has come out in favor of the annexation of the whole of Mexico. That seems to be very probable? Mr. Adams has alwsys been eccentric. On the Oregon question, when Mr. Polk claimed to fitty-four forty, the sage of Quincy claimed as much, and quoted some chapter and verse in Genesis?we foiget which?as his authority for doing po:>et, at the same time, he predicted that Mr. l'< * ould give up his claim in some round ubout wujr. That prediction was verified. Mr. Adam* will probably claim the whole of Mexico, and be willing to annex it, in his speech in the House; but he will be content, should a peace he made, with the Rio Grande for a boundary. It is also said that Mr. Benton has separate.! himself from the administration, and that he will evacuate the Military Committee, when the Senate meets, and will oppose Mr. Polk herealtar. other rumors arc afloat, of other public rrfen. In fact, the meeting of the approaching Congress will be extremely interesting, in various points of view. The new questions will puzzle and perplex all the old statesmen of the day.

Tlie question involved i>, whether tho proprietor of a newspaper, or the person who draws up u legal notioe and sends it to the former for publication, is responsible for typographical errors? er, in other words, whether an illegible, ill written manuscript will excuse a misprint. The facts which gave rise to the case ocourred as far back as 1835, from which will be seen the necessity that exists of cure and accuracy, not only in those who tat?* upon themselves to draw up legal papers, hut in those who afterwards put them into ?yi?e. In 1885, Messrs. William and David Cargill, then residing in this city, entered into, or, at least, intended to enter into, a limited partnership?William Cargill to be the apecial partner, and to put iu, us his sh'ire of the part* nershipiund, #2000; David C. Cargill to be the charge, and the caae was argued the week before last. On the part of the plaintiff* it wa6 strenuously argued that the newspaper proprietor, im* pliedly, at least, for valuable consideration, contracted to use due care and diligence in printing and publishing the noticc ; that if any difficulty oecurred in reading or decyphering the manuscript, it was his duty to send it to the person from whom he received it, to have it explained or corrected; but in not having done so, he was guilty of wilful neglect and inaccuricy, which was a breach of his contract. On the other side, it was strongly urged that Mr. Cargill wus, to say the least of it, equally guilty, in not having sent a legible manuscript that if persons do not choose to take ordinary care in writing and drawing up their legal papers, they must take the consequences, and that Ill U1C present case, mc iuoiuiociijh was nucu a* to mislead a person ot even more than ordinary skill and diligence. That there had been negligence and want of care some where, is indisputable; but at whose door this negligence is, and upon whom the consequences of it shall fall, is the question. If it upon the person sending the notice, or upon the printer 1 Sporting Intelligence. ClNTSBVlLLC COURSE, L.

One of the requirements is, that the partners shall publish the terms of the partnership when registered, for at least six weeks, in two newspapers, to be designated by the Clerk of the county in which the partnership shall be registered, JtoSo tar the requirements of the statute were complied with.
