MAitcHKaTKM, Nov. 16 ?On ThursJay, Friday, and Saturday last,as well aa yesterday, there was "a decidedly more cheerful feeling here ; and some rather extenxive purobases were made for the Levant and other foreign markets, though without any very decided improvement In prices This morning, however, the announcement of the failure of the extensive and well known Arm of Messrs. Truman & Cook, of London, oast a serious gloom upon the market, and the Improved feeling which had previously been experienced, though not entirely lost, was sensibly diminished Although this failure does not dlreotly affeot Manchester to any considerable extent, It must produce results Injurious to general credit, and postpone for a ttme that restoration of oomldence whloh is so neeeasary to the commerce of the oouatry. There is no material change In the condition of the working classes in this district, except that the oontinuaaoe oi the want of employment, and the gradual auuroach of winter, bezin to press with in creased severity upon their scanty resources.?

LEEDS. Nov. 18? We have had a quiet market, and very little to-day, at prioes about the same as last week. The Ikon Trade?It appesrs that business upon the whole has remained during the last fortnight in a languishing condition A few substantial erders have been given out for the fulfilment of engagements that could not be lODgt*r delayed ; but we hear that others, to quite us large an extent, have been countermanded, in many instances, upon frivolous pretexts. The disinclination to purchase still continues, from a vague apprehension that lower pricm must rule ; though the wisest head in the trade would be puxxled to point out a remote advantage from such a movement, and as stocks are mostly wearing down with uncompleted orders on hand, more business has been done than in the previous fortnight.? li nni ai; i"i in Guxeilf.

THE AVHUAL H? PORTS or tbx Secretaries of the Treasury, Wavy and War, RECEIVED BY SPECIAL EXPRESS. &C. &C. We this day publish, in a Herald Supplevitnl, the annual repoi*ts, in lull, of the Secretary of the Treasury, the Secretary of the Navy, and a synopsis, embracing" all the essential points, of the report of the Secretary of War, which is an extremely long docunAOit. They wilJ not probably be found in fuJl in any other New York paper this morning, ?B we procured them by special express from Washington. It is needless lor us to say that this is the most valuable and important supplement that we ever issued from this establishment. We shAll send it to all our subscribers in the countrf*, an well as in the city, by means of which they will receive these important documents 'considerably in advance of other medium. As our establishment is at present constituted, we are under the necessity of issuing a supplement whenever a great amount of matterr is on ? in thia inatnnre; hut when our new presses are done, and our other contemplated improvements carried out, we shall, in such cases, issue a double sheet, which we will be enabled to do at thrffote of twelve to thirteen thousand per hour, frideed, we can then print one hundred thousand copies in the same tune that it, now takes us to print fifty thousand. The supplement will be served gratuitously io our subscribers. The Weekly Heratd.. The IVttkly ljirald will be pi jblished ?t nime o'clock to-morrd w morning. Jt will bra very valuable sheet. The Report of the Secretary/or the Treasury, auil others. We give to-day, in our regular paper an3 a supplement, the reports of the Secre ary of the Treasury, of the Secretary of War, and also that of the Secretary of the Navy. The report of. the Secretary of War is condensed?the other reports are given at Jength. The most important of these reports is that from the pen of Mr- Walker. It is long and able, and extremely interesting in all its details and ; doctrines. These reports embrace all the regular papers coming from the departments, and accompanied with the President's message, except the report of Cave Johnson, which we expect to give in a few days. We received them yesterday by express from Washington, and will probably publish them, exclusively, to this community this morning. The report of Mr. Walker is very long, but il is a very interesting and important document. It gives a history of the tariffs of this country, from the commencement of this government to the present day, and shows most conclusively their character and effects. It is a complete txpoik of the inefficiency of high tariffs to the general prosperity and industry of a free and enterprising people. We do not apprehend, however, any disturbance of this branch of the subject by the present Congress. His views on tlip snh-trrasurv and trpmurv nntM nnH ?h*ir effects on this country, will speak for themselves. We have no time to-day to discuss or condense those remarkable passages in hi's report referring to such matters. The report of the Secretary of the Navy is also very well written, and presents an interesting view of that branch ot the public service. That of the War Department is extremely long, and we have therefore endeavored to^pondense its principal points, so as to present to the public those important documents at one view, and on i the same aay. Mr. Marcy asks for ten additional regiments of regulars, besides twenty thousand volunteers, to serve during the war?making, with those now in the field, and deducting those whose terms of service have expired, a g-neral force of ?fiy thousand men, for the prosecution of the war with Mexico, until that country shall come to her neuea, in some way oraother. Our own belief is that she will not come to her senses at all?that we will be compelled to govern her as a distant territory, lor many years to come, until she i3 educated and fitted for ultimate annexation to this Union, in fit#* KltinP 11/a 1/ Alt 9 I'Alini* ?. ?#! ?... > ' ? ???/ ?W ?* niiu UMIUI/ iil.lll in | made til and sobered down for annexation in a good match, when he cornea to years. We have now given all the reports und documents, or their material points, with which Congress is usutffty presented, except the report of the Post-master (Jeneral. The President's menage led the way?a prosy, ill-contrived, common-place, ordinary production. This was followed by the powerful documents of the Secretary of the Treasury, the Secretary of War, the respectable production of the Secretury of the Navy, and as to the Secretary of State, hr has but little to do. The whole will be followed by the report of Cave Johnson, which will, most likely, be a counterpart to the

message, equally prosy, and equally commonplace. It gives us no pleasure to speak of Mr. Polk's message in these terms, or to make predictions of a similar kind, in regard to Cave Johnson's report, but we enre nothing forgrtai men, even if they were a djousand times greater tlinii these. We mean tolpeak the truth, or hone ji cmvic ions, ?>! the highest, as well as of the lowest; and must **y, ugadl and a^mn. that WWH"HL...L.l -I../.the Presictent'u message, considering the in?terials he had at hit command, has been written in a spirit, and temper, and tone, that bareiy entitle it to admission into the columns of his organ at Washington, and that is saying as much as is possible >.o say. Now for Congress. What is that body to do 1 What is to be done with Mexico ! Wlio is to be next President 1 st Philanthropic Movement.?We understand that a project which lias for some time past, been contemplated, for erecting a church i And temporary home for the benefit of destitu'je emigrants of British origin, is in a lair way of being carried out successfnlly, through the liberality of the Vestry of Trinity church, and n number of our philanthropic citizens. A grant of a plat ot land containing twenty'.Our building, lots on the corner of Fifty-third street and Fifth street, has been obtained, and as soon as the necessary funds are obtained, the erection of a church and hospital, or temporary home, will be commenced. The design of the proposed institution is, to furnish a temporary home for the indigent emigrant on his arrival?a place of refuge for the sick and destitute; and also the comforts of religious solace, under the name of the Church and Hospital a> o- >1.. nr...? t._ i vi wu ucuigc me iuuuyr. im iicuriiis uic to be open* to emigrants of all religious beliefs, and it will likewise be in the nature of an hotel, where emigrants can leave their wives and families temporarily, until they h-*ve mntle arrangements to settle in such parts of the country as they may select. The expense of constructing the necessary buildings, is estimated at thirty thousand dollars, a portion of which, it is expected, will be contributed by the British Government and the Church of England. The conditions on which the grant of ihe ground is made, are that the plans of the buildings shall be submitted to and approved by the Mayor, and the buildings erected within three years. Such an establishment is much needed, in this city, and when erected, will, unquestionably, be the means of doing much good. Such being our opinion, we take pleasure in recommending it to the attention and favorable consideration of the public. Donations and subscriptions for the object, will be received by the Rev. Motes Marcus, Rector of the Church of St. tieorje the Martyr, and by Thomas Dixon, Esq., 51 William street. The President's Message.?Our columns have been so much crowded for a day or two past, that we have not been able to find room for mention of the very rapid manner in which the President's message was conveyed to this city iiv tile envernment ernress. The mnil ncrpnt Mr. Griswold, left Washington at half-past one, P. M., on Tuesday; arrived at Baltimore at halfpast two; at Philadelphiai at seven; and Jersey City at fifteen minutes before ten?a distance of, two hundred and twenty-live miles, in e.ght hours and a half, including stoppages. Immediately after the message was received ru copies were distributed to the pres^) tj,e n^xt morning it was published in. fi'^i m an the daily papers of New York. T'^e maii agent, Mr. Griswold, deserves the, 0fthe community lor his praisewor'.'ny efforts to arrive here bo soon. Additional Particulars of the Lou of the tephsn Whitney. The intelligence of the loss of this fine vessel, Vith her crew and passengers, created a deal of sensation through the city yesterday. From a report of the wreck, in a reteent Cork paper, received last night by mail, we see that the melancholy occurrence is attributable to the fact of a new light having been but recently erected on Rock Island, of the existence of which the person in charge at the time was evidently ignorant. The loss of property, in ship no a cargo, reacncs f i^;,uvu ; ^i,9uu or inai amount is divided as follows, viz.:?Atlantic Insurance Company, $28,000? Sun, #27,000; (rencral Mutual, $14,000; Mercantile, $900; and #20,000 scattering. The ship was owned by Robert Hermit, Captain Popham, and others. She had a cargo of 19,000 bushels of Indian corn, 709 bales of cotton, 500 barrels of rosin, 2,200 boxea cheese, 100 packages of butter, flour, beeswax, and othe> merchandise. Captain Popham was considered a man of a good deal of experience, having been in the employ of Robert Hermit for more than fifteen years, and was first officer of the Stephen Whitney under Captain Thompson. He was a son of the late Major Popham, and a native of this city. The list of her passengers and crew, given yesterday by telegraph, was not quite complete. The following comes from the books of ^je owner, and may be relied upon as correct:? P*?ir*oF.Bi?In the cabin?Mcwt. Kordyoe, McKay and Roberta, (?U lost) In tba second cabin and steerage?

The vessels of all nations, in the harbor and fit the wharves, wore their colors at half mast during the day yesterday, out of respect to the memory of Capt. Popham. The following extract is taken from the protest of the mate and one of the seamen:? ' Nothing mhtf rial occurred on the passage until Wed nesday, thn Kltb day of Norember, instant, on which d?y,ai or about two o'olnck In iheafternoon.thesblp was hovH to, and soundings were bad in fifty fsthomi The weather was particularly thick, and the wind blowing very hard.

Iiy S at 0 o'clock. Considering wh had sufficient offing, steered tbn channel course, K by 8 , and at a to 10, the laud was wade ahead, and the helm wai put a-port; and on coming round, owing to the heavy eea then run olnp. the ship wont h short- In a few uilnutef, out of one hundred and ten huinau bniogi, jii?neiinere and crew, ninety-one perished, among whom was the captain and second mate. The persons who were saved lost ail their property, and were left nearly naked. Kvsry exertion was made bat owing to the wild cliff on which the Teeeel struck, and the <l?rkness of the night, it was Impossible to make any effort to save any part of the ship or cargo " A reporter from one of tbn Cork papers visited the seene of the shipwreck, and thus desorlbes what took place preparatory to the melancholy occurrence : To the fatal error wtiioh supposed th* light on Rock Island, near Crookhaven, to be that of Old lUad, the disastrous results that ensu"d, would appear to be, in a considerable degree, attributable. The light on Rook Island, as I have been informed, has been but v?ry recently erected; and, from all that I could ascertain, the rrspouaible persons on board appeared to be ignorant?f its exlstenoe. The ship was again hauled off tb* land, and, believing she had sufficient offing, a course was steered in relation to the supposed position of the Old llead, whlob, under tha circumstances, was eonsidered to be the correct one. They kept on in this ooorse until a quarter to 10 o'olock. when the land *as signalised immediately ahead, sad orders were promptly given to bring her rouod; but th> trt-mondous surf whion beat upon tha rocks issued ? sterner commsnd, and it was evident lha ill-fated ship* whs doomed. A brief moment only ensusd, and one terrific crash followed, whioh instantly consigned number* to eternity. This single encounter stove in the entire side of the vessel; and in loss than half an hour there wen cot two pUnki togetbsr, nor a single article of any description that could afford the means of escape to ItbM pai*en(?r or sailor. Tin Law and LAwyaits.^-Under the old constitution of our State, one of the greatest evils in society was the facility afforded to unprincipled lawyers and trading judges, to involve men in litigation?'o keep them there?to plunder them in the shape of litigation; and all this, merely to get a living for themselves. The chief inducement which led to the revolution effected in this deimrtment of social life, was the hope of getting rid of such a state of things, and of such pernicious practice*, and the desire to cheapen and purify the luw in all its departments. How has this b?*rn accomplished 1 A number of curious and remarkable cases were brought to our attention yesterday, of a singula' end striking character, convincing us that uader our new constitutioa, some of the old Uwyer3 are attempting to insinuate themselves into their old courses and pursuits. A course and conduct such as this is an injury to society at large, and is calculated to defeat all the purposes of the change < ffected. We must look into this most important subject. Will the honeBt portion of the profession aid us T The Morals and Discrimination of Politicians.?The morality 0f politicians is us farcical as it is striking. Let any one only read the fjinous resolutions and speeches put forth by the politicians at the recent meeting in Philadelphia, all glorifying Mr. Clay as one of the greatest in"n of this or any fcther age! They denounce the war with Mexico in the loftiest terms, as being illegal^ unconstitutional, and everything that is ba<^?as being even national murder in the higher degree. Well, perhaps it may be so. Bm * n the next moment we find them eulogising the generals and soldiers of this war, as the greatest heroes of the universe!? Well, we li^e this, too. But how is it possible to approve a certain number of gallant men as great heroes, and to extol them as generous and noble warriors, and then in the next instant to turn round *nd denounce them as murderers, assassins, pjid as engaged in wholesale murder 1 This is the inconsistency and immorality of politicians. What a spectacle of utter and contemptible folly! Military Movemknts.?A detachment of tr.<>op8 embarked on Wednesday, the 8th inst., Irnm Pnrt n?1?imk?o ?

It was composed of one hundred recruits for the 1st Infantry; eighty-nine recruits and two musicians for the 9th Infantry; forty recruits for the 3d Artillery, and one recruit for the 8th Infantry, under th? command of Capt. W. S. Ilenry, 3d Infantry, with Lieut W. II. Fowler, 1st Artillery, A. C. S., and Lieut. O. B. Griffiths, 16tii Infantry. Lieut. Merrihew, of the third dragoons, arrived in 'this city yesterday, direct from the bf war. We understand that Gen; Shields, Col. Harney, and other distinguished military men, may be expected here shortly, and that Col. Burnett will probably arrive here to-day. TIlfMrtcaJ and Jtliuical* Tabu Theatre.?Lut nlgbt Sheridan Knowles' play of the "Huohback" ?u presented at the Park Theatre, Mr. H. P. Orattan appearing in the oharaoter of Master Walter, while Mrs. O. Jones played the part of Julia. Mr. Orattan made some good points, but there was much in his acting that called for the generous forbearance of his audience. His quiet, even readings were well given, but where energy or any kind of transition from one tone to another was required, he failed It is by no means a small aeoompllshment for an actor to master the mild passages which, in this pftrt, oontaln so muoh meaning; the construction of the character was one of Knowles' peculiarly happy efforts?and when all the beauties of the author are diserimlnated and developed, it beoomes a stage gem. Of Mrs. Jones' performance in the eharaoter of Julia, we eannot write otherwise than in.the highest praise. Indeed, although we have seen her play the same part several times before, we think she last evening exoeeded her previous happy efforts In the same pl"oe. Her aeting was full of spirit, her reading was effective, aad, trusting to memory, we should say' pritlcaUy true to the author. Mr. Dyott as Sir Thomas Clifford, acquitted himself handsomely ; he is always vt<lI nrmuwAd In ahttAtar hi ill aanL and u ta usual with tain. he lost night knew hit part Mid ^iSyvd it wall, though " Sir Thomas, the Secretary" wm not correctly dreaaed.

The part of Sir Thomas Clifford, though not lengthy, ia a otioice one. and ought to he presented with great care, and especial attention to effect, in thejlast acts. Mrs Abbott play ?d Heilen, and made the moat of that pleasant little pari ; her interviews with Maaer Modus were very well enacted, and ahe was handsomely aeoonded in her effort a by Mr. Stark, who played the part of the baahful atudmt U Andrews, as Kathoas, and A. Andrews, as Lord Tinsel, were both well up in their parta. The drama of " The Bottle" waa presented aa an afterpiece. To-night Mr. G Andrewa takes a benefit, on which occaaion, aa uay be seen by referenoe to the advertisement, an excellent bill la presented. All who know Mr. Andrewa aa an aotor, know that he deaerree a bumper. Bowery Thkatbk ? The " Giselle, or the Willies,'" waa again performed at the Bowery theatre last (evening and with tbeexoeption of an vldentatrainiDfr, or overdoing, on the part of Miss Turnbull, as well aa on the part of Mr. Smith,'It went off very well. We would suggeat to Mr. Smith that there la too muoh grimace in his pantomime. Aa a danteuie, we have no fault to find with Miaa Turnbull. The bouse was, aa usual, filled to the utmost The "Giselle" will be repeated this evening, with " Sixteen String Jaok, or the Hlgbwaym&u of iiriraslow," and the " Spectre Bridegroom,or a Ghost in Spite of Himself." The baUet of the " Giselle'' cannot be too often repeated, for it has drawn full houses eve-y night alnce It waa produoed, and Miaa Turnbull is an eatablished favorite at thia theatre. Chatham i heatm:.?The same performances as the previous night were given at tblAheatre. The house wm tolorably Well filled, and all seemed highly pleased with the entertainments.
