We nny expect at any moment to hear of h?r arrival at Boston. Ttai OemwrnUj MoiIhk In Plil.wltlplila last nl%hi. On reference to the ie:>-yr?phic head, in auotnor c< l imn. it will be perceived that the Buchanauites of Philadelphia as-embled in great force lust nitfht. Two of the pri ncipal speakers, per nnn xincemeiit, did not m ike their appearunce; but their p'aces were filled by other personages, who, although they may not be such "great gun%" msn iged to make considerable noise, for which th'y received the applause of the multitude. For full I a ttculars see the telegraphic rei ort. TJie War, Siaveiy and tht Cburcli, In the yedr of Christianity one thou.and eight hundred uud lorty-srven, and in the MXty-first year of the indepeudenc of the United States of America, the political parties of that republic are composed of two great faction*, commonly known by the desigaaiion of wh'gs and democrat*, or locofocos. It happens,}t >o, that at the p^es-nt lime, th-^e two great parties are divided in principles on two great is?U"8?the origin of the Mex'Cin war?the mmn-r and object of its prosecution?and the question of slavery, under th- Wilmot proviso E ich party, being desirous of electing i's president in the general election which is to tak^ place next year, has taken iis po ition on th"S'{ questions. The whig*, through llv-ir orators and their journals, have taken the ground that the war is an unjust ou*>; that it was commenced by the act of the President, Mr. Polk, in directing Gen. Taylor to take a position, with the forces under his command, on the Rio Grand-; ihat it is an unjust war, ai 1 In acknowledgment of us injustice, that our gallant armies, regulars and volunteers, should be directed back to our own boundaries, and retrain from their butcheries and murders? i and, moreover, tn?t in ca>c any territory snouiu : be acquired from such war, trial slavery shu.il not j be extanded over it. Tne whigs have, there- j lore, taken the affirmative on all the questions I at issue between the two pirtics into which the : c luntry is divided?leaving the democrats the j neaativ^, and 10 defend it as well as they can. The whigs aud the democrats, however, cinnot decide those issues. They hive to be acted upon and set'led, conclusively and finally, by the (>eople themselves :n the m inner provided by tfce constitution?by the exercise of their rights as republic ins and freemen. So far, so good. No one can object to this mode of settling the dispute ; but we perceive* thai it is not satisfactory to the clergymen of the Pri-cb) terian Church, in solemn conclave assem- ; bled in the pi>tbytery of Indnna. These s-g^s, j whose duty it is to cure souls, and administer 8 <tritual comfort to the fl ?eks under their charge, have actually doffed the gown, descended fiom their pulpits, and conveit d the house of prayer, lot into a money changer's shop, as was done of | o'd, bat into a political arena, where they have had the temerity to t*ke up the very questions at is^ue j b tween the twopirties,ranked themselves.on the ! sid-ofthe whigs, and taken their position on that side of the question. They have accused our ; rulers (meaning James K. Polk) of bringing on the war, and are going to pray, but not fust, until peace is again restored. They go further than this. They have taken their stand on the subject of slavery, and have appointed a committee to correspond with the bresbyteries of Michigan J and Illinois on the subject. Since ourcareer as a journalist, we have been | compelled by duty, on more occasions than | one, to take clergymen to task for their 1 interference in affairs of State. Indeed, it I serins that they cannot keep their fingers out of the political pie?that they must have their say on every thing that occurs i in the political world. Thus, we hearot a cler- | gyman somewhere in the South, preaching from tne pulpit the justice ofthe war, and r-buking, in j the strongest terms, any treaty'with Mexico that | would not secure to us greater advantngcb than i we have ever enjoyed. Here is a clergyman ranked on one Bide of the question?here we have a red hot locofoco in the pulpit, with his ' gown on; and in Indiana, we have a conclave of < them taking the whig side of the question, and I denouncing the war. So it lias been in oil ages 1 of the world, with clergymen of all denomination* nd all ranks?from the Pope, down to aj obscure curate a fitty dollars a year. Now these things should be discouraged by every lover of his country. Our ministers, of all denominations, must be kept within their legitimate bounds. Tney are pud lor the curing of sou's, and not forth'ir opinions on political questions; and wheu they step beyond those bounds they should be censured It is come to a pretty Ipasf, indeed, it tne ministers 01 religion are to take out of the hands of the people their legitimate rights, and act fur them, and exercise them for them. Talk of the influence, m'rigue and lust of power of the Roman Catholic*! They hdve been bad enough; but not a particle worse in thia respect thaa any other church would be when in the ascendancy. The best way is to frown down every attempt of this kind, no matter from what quarter it may come. The clergy must be confined to the exercise of their own peculiar duties, or the evil will increase uutil. instead of their being our advisers and ?piritual comforters, tb?y will be our rulers and masters. And the history df the world tell* us the nature of the yoke that would be imposed on us. N*v>t. ? Li'Ut F. A Neville reiiorted on Frtd?v la^t tor th* command oi the II.

Herald, Mr. Poli's veto message on the river and harbor bill. As a literary pro* duction it evinces great labor, but small intellect. In fact, it is just what we might have expected from a man who never ranked higher than a country lawyer in Tennessee, and reached a po. j sitioa of eminence by accident?one who is of I much th? same intellectual calibre as the present : head ot the Post Office Department, Cave Johnson, whoact^and thinks as if that branoh of the public service were created for the especial pur|>ose of tinkering, ?nd peddling in the contracts, and reducing the pay of contractors a few dollars, without for a moment considering, that by abolishing the service altogether, nil expense would be saved. This veto m-psig* of Mr. Polk is evidently modelled after General Jackson's celebrated Maysvile message, and the efforts at imitation cannot foe concealed It Ucksjhowever, the vigor and int. lint of old Hickory; but no doubt m?et8 with the droogest approbation of Mr. Ritchie, who, i.b? u;. ?... i : Lt. : iiivc ma uu-i-r, liart un lnnurnrraoie ogcamunB, shown his incapacity for his position. It in h lamentable fact, ihe executive power of thin great country is in the control of thre# perbons?Cave Johnson, Mr. Polk, and Mr. Ritchie ?a triumvirate of weak men?with intellects ranging below mediocrity, who ought n?-ver t.? have bern taken from their natural level, in which they would be harmless for good or evil. But so it is, and we must only submit to the infliction with fortitude and patience, and trust in the dawning of a better d?y, when the government will be in the hands of men of intellect and sense??nd not in those of old women Th^re is a remarkable similarity in the opinions and actions of Mr. Po'k and Cave Johnson. The former asks fifty millions of dol |ars for the pros cut'on of the war with Mexico, and ol>j cts to t-peodin* five hundred for impro^ing roads, &a. This is Cave Johnson exactly. He will object to paying two or three thousand doll >rs a year for the transportation of the great Southern m >il; and yet will kick up a row with the BritUli government, by which ten times as much is lost, and the foreign mails thrown into a stole of confusion, from whieh it seems almost impossible to extricitJ them. However, we can expect but little, where but little is. O'Connei.i. in Pukoatory?VVe are sorry to i . 1 ... ^ tv _ _ I Am II *! 11 * learn mai me great uauiet u ^unucn is aim in purganry, not having been yet released from tba' half way stopping place. As soon as the sad intelligence was known in Edinburgh, a solemn high mass, for the repose of his soul, was performed in St. Mary's Catholic Church in that city. From a description of the church, on the occasion, we learn thit it presented a sight of unusual grandeur and solemnity The altar paintings were shrouded in moraine, and so also was the pulpit, as well as part of the gallery. T ie windows, p-mne'led in crape, and studded with silver t-Hrs, had an impressive effect; while the catafa'que, erected in the centre of the church, hid a most magnificent appearance. It was formed of four pillars wreathed in crape, with twisied silver, and surmounted by a loft canopy of ermin^.Mnd black cloth, covered with plumes; and from which descended, in waving lines, the drapery that connected it with pilNrs. Within this catafalque w?a pi iced an imitation bier and sarcophagus, having on each -idethe escutcheon of the deceased ; and on the top, or lid, rising from a profusion of rich work, was a large crucifix of burnished silver. At each corner of the V\t ? r w*r?> m ulciixi odn/luluVici (Via intar. vals being fi led up with numerous taper lights. It ia really horrible to think that euch great display was requisite at all, pr that there was a<iy necessity for a high mass for the repose of the liberator's soul. But one thing is clear and evident, that 0'Conncll must not be allowed to remain any longer in purgatory than can be helped. He must assuredly be got out of it as expeditiously as possible; and the only way we can see ofuccomplishing his release, is to call a great sympathetic meeting at the Tabernacle, send around papers, begging subscriptions of nam^s, as well as of money, pass suitable resolutions on the subject,;and get half a dozen half educated lawyers to make appropriate speeches on ihe matter It will never do to keep O'Conn>-ll in purgatory. Our New York sympathisers will not tolerate it. So, ye sympathisers, prepare your resolutions and your speeches, and let us reli ase O'Connell from purgatory in the shortest time possible. Police Systkm?Irs Inefficiency.?Our present system of police is becoming less efficient almost daily, and we may say, hs9 been degene" rating since the administration of Mayor Iiavemeyer. Tne pres?nt plan of police was adopted in 1845, making this the third year of its existence, during wnicu lime me puouc nave paia ior me i first yenr, four hundred and seventy-nine thou. | sand dollars salary,lor eight hundred policeman; 1 the next year, one hundred additional men were add^d, making nine hundred, which is the present force, increasing the yearly amount to five hundred and twenty-nine thous&nd dollars. This, you must understand, is merely tor policemen, exclusive of the chiefs salary, togegether with the six magistrates, rent of eta tion houses, gis, fuel, two door men for each station hous-*, nt one dollar per dny, Mationery furnished. The whole department, clubs, star?, chains, horse and wag n, chalk and brushes, and lmterns, tog ther with wlut they call j contingencies, amounting to very near one mil- j lion of dollars, annually?thus increasing j the taxation to an iminent?e amount, merely for the support of a system which is anything but efficient, and could be done, under proper management, for less than half the sum; the etreetskept in good order, the property cfour ciuatens protected, and the lamps properly trimmed. Instead of which, we have neither one nor the other; and yet, the citizens are compeUerl to pay double for what could he done j much better at ht?\f the price. We intend to go on and bhow the many humbugs carried on in th:H system of police, which have been secreted from the public eye, both in the chief's office and the station homes?thereby ! lraving the people to judga whether the present ! nnlir:?* is ax n*-rf?*et mil moral in its operations. ?s the organ for that department would india- J vor to m ike th-m believe. Bishop Hughes ?We understand 'hat this oel-brited Catholic prelate has returned from Washington, and will preach thin morning in on?of the Catholic churches of th:s city. This is 1 very good, and shows no inclination on the ( Bishop's part to be idle. We hope, however, ! that he will include in his sermon the result of | his observations on matter* and men at the capital, and give some intimation of who will be the ! ambassador to the Sovmign Pontiff, at Rome, i nnd particularly whether the successful candidate is his own nominee. This ia due from the 1 Bishop, lor it is very well known that the mif- | sioi to Rome was the inducement for him to , visit Washington. Mork Banks Bkkakino.?We understand from j our cotemportry of the Sun, that the St ite Bit k of Eliztbethtown, ia in a very precarious condi' tion, iniiinating, probably, that it will soon | brea'x Curiona enough, the cause of its present i condition is, it is said, that the ghost of the ! Pin infield Bank haunts it. We have alway* i | thought that the raiue of bank failures was the , want of gold and silver; but this i? a new feature , | in political economy, and ought to be noticed.? j I The best way is to take none of those notes in . i the city. | (V*?u A-tf) BAt.r.tf.?We?<Ur? nwr eom? ! singly. The beautiful Bisoaecianti bat ahut up { the musical critic*, and the equally beautiful | Auguata has shut up the Park Theatre, and probably will soon shut up the Broadway. Thia is > the age of revolution, change, joy, segars, triumph and fat oysters. On Friday evening, owing to the happy hoarse- ! ness of the boundless and lovely Trufli, the managers of the extatic Opera, both the pork and cotton managers, and also the Italian, had to substitute the " Sonnambula" for " Lu?ia;" and hence Signora Biscaecianti had another chance to exhibit her talents before a very full and fashionable house. She accomplished a complete triumph. The opera finished amid bursts of applause, and Biscaccianti proved her skill, her gr-uius, her power, her voice, and her real talents. She has thrown the mean and insolent critics into hysterics, and there she will leave them. We now learn that the managers propose j t > send onto Boston a detachment oi their troupt, i R 1 ft n f I tn Ko t h *m?i M n nrvrl tn try a subscription. The attempt in Philadelphia has failed, in consequi ncc of the dullness and waTit of musical taste in ih it city. Of Boston we have more hope*, because Boston is a city of s?nse. Thus we go fctthe Op*ra. But can't we hear Biscucciinti again before she goes to Boston 1 Now of M d*me Augustu?what of her 1 We understand that Madame has at laat shut up the Park Theatre for good and all, and that there is little probability of that house being opened ay;ain before the day of judgment, unless it be to exhibit horses, not donkiea, for they have had enough of the latter. This is a great movement in prophecy and civilization. Madame Augusta has engaged all the English troupe at the Park, b ig and baggage, and will open to-morrow night at Palme's, w iih English opera and farce, diversified with the French balUt?ill for 50 cents trie boxes, and 25 cents the gallery. She will probably shut up the Broadway Theatre in a few weeks. Great lim^s thece. Thratilc*! and Sliul. nl. Boweuv Thuitm-Rbcittion or the Hcbosi.?

No sooner was it made, than three loud '-hurrahs," which threatened to raise the roof from the theatre, were given with right good will, and no sooner had they died away, than "three more" were gtvtn in the sameenthusiastio spirit. At this point tbe audience were beside themselves All eyes were directed to the box in which our gallant officers were peated, many of tbem owned by ladles and gentlemen who had seen their three soore and ten, and many by tbe won , lovely of the female sex that our city oan boast c.f Truly the reception wts as it should have been, and full honor was done to our brave fellow cltlaens.

The editor o; the Fa>o l+duitriat states that from the specimens he haa heard of the music, that it would undoubtedly become popular. The preity oirous house of Senor Nib j Pons, bad been converted into a bull saloon, and 'he various clubs and ft*nociatloM In Havana were m'iklnii use of it for the purpone of givlog maeked and other balls Seoora Ciiartegui. ft native of Cuba, was about to appear in the character of Fenena, In Verdi's opera of " Nebuchwdneiz?r " She Is the first Cuban who has ever presented herself b. fore tbe public there as a sloger of eminence, and from this circumstance, a* well as her Well known talents, it was expected she would make decided hit. ftnd be elevated at otioe to the rank Of prima dnnna. S-iftor Marti, tbe proptiator of the Teatro J < Taeon. had engaged tbe well known Spanish actor, Don Joaquin Hull He wfts ftls > expec lug other actorri from .vlexleo. end in ft sbor< time would have a full company He had also engaged 8en<ra Tat Dorado and Senor Gerada, who are spoken of as exor lient dancers. They were to delight the iUbaneros by performing many of the graceful national dances of Spain. Senor Marti, it appears. has a ballet company, an opera oompany, and a dramatlo oompany, all on band at the same time Ti>is enables him to give the greatest varle'y of entertainment; and it would be writ If New York managers would take a lesson from him In enterprise. There Is ft plan on foot to erect ft theatre in the inner cart' f tbe city. The Pre nun has the following article on the subject: ?
