Oo- Advt riisementa received lor on* insertion only 'i he Annexation of M*xlr,._Tl?e Great (^uef tlou of tUr Century. We in our columns to-day two remarks- 1 be circles, written by two of the most distin- : guisht d politicinns of tlii9 State, one belonging to I the whig and the other to th* democratic party, on the present condition ol the coantry, our re- I lations with Mexico and the next presidential election, singularly enough the distinguished , writers of these articles, without any concert or i communication, personal or otherwise, but look- I itig at the probable result from different points of view, have come almost to the same conclusion, viz: tbatthe chances are in lavor of Mr. Clay, at the next election. That the chances at the next Presidential election might be in favor ot Mr. Clay, we have sometimes, ourselves, considered probable. II the tour millions of legal voters, who exercised their constitutional rights in 1844, were to vote over again with the same issues before them as they had at the list Presidential election, the result might be in favor of Mr. Clay; but we are much of opinion that, during the last four years, the progress of new thoughts, feelings, and purposes, in the United States, has been almost equal to what it would be in half a century of ordinary existence. All the old issues are settled, se* aside, and unheeded. In the present crisis, the public mind is rapidly coming to one decidcd, Magnificent, great, and most important issue, and that is. the annexation of the whole of Mexico to the United States, at all hazard*. Now, on this important question, a great deal might be said on both sides. The splendor, the magnificence, and the brilliaucy of annexing the whole of that great republic to the United States, with all its natural and artificial wealth, is calculated to operate on the public mind, and to make itself paramount to all other feel1 ugs. The young and energetic generation will be peculiarly affected by such an issue. On the other hand the moral magnificence of retiring I entirely from such a country, of showing to the i world our wonderful and miraculous military J accomplishments, and then coming back to our I own territory, may influence the high and mora1 sensibilities of the people, and operate as a check, and perhaps overpower the other feelings before n< xt November. By absorbing all Mexico, the American people would be but pursuing the beaten track of conquerors in all ages of the world?the Persians, the Carthagenians, the Grecians, Romans, Goths, Franks, Normans, and the British; but by taking a contrary course, and retiring entirely from that country, and confining ourselves within our own natural limits, and, with our own undisputed population and power, we may create a new national code of morality far all nations that are to follow hereafter, and thus still more to astonish the people of Europe, with onr magnanimity, our national victories <t?<l moral self-denial. \\Y ichercr s-ntiment takes precedence in the national mind, whatever may be the result of the. precedential election, it is very evideut that the question at issue is more important, more magnificent, and of greater magnitude than any question that ever came before a free people ; and that it is equally as important as that of the revolution of 1776 itse f In fact, ttie result of the J next election will be a change of more impxrtiiice than the revolution which separated this country from Great Britain. It will give a new direction to the histpry of civilization in the new world, and even in the old. We have much yet to tay on this point. We are on the edge of a new transition state in the history of civilization, and we ought not to take the first plunge in ilie depths of futurity without due caution and preparation rerokts and Reporting.?We perceive that somebody has been running round to the Courier office, to get them to correct un error of N V. for U. S. in a very elaborate report of a speech made by Mr. Prepcott Hall recently and published in the Herald, on the election of General Taylot. We are not sure the re was dny error in that report: and if there whs, even according to the allegation, it a very trifling one to make such a funs about in another paper. It Mr. Hall or Mr Sonw body, hud understood the proprieties of literary and newep.per life, as well as those of the Jockey Club, he would have come to this office, and pointed out ihe error, and had it corrected, if worth correcting, instend ?f going to another journal, and making a fuss about an immaterial error in the Herald report; Mr. Folworn made some similar fuss about what he called an 'authori'ed report" of ours, in a certain evening pa|<er of no circulation. Mr. Hall is the chairman of the Jockey Club, and a member also of the Union Club, and is supposed to know all the proprieties among the gentlemen attached to those clubs, Mr. Folsom is at the head of ihe Hough end Ready Club, but both have yet to Wru some of the proprieties f t intellectual life, end among them is one | in the present instance. We think the best : way hereafter to treat these half civilized gentlemen, would be to give directions lo our reporters to exclude their speeches entirely from our columns. The reporters of this journal do not require certificates of charac'er from Miy other journal, or from the chairman of any Jockey Club in the universe. It is not the Jockey C.ub, nor the Union Club, nor the Rough and Ready Ciub, nor any other club, (jot up by njr little tlitjur, that will make General Taylor the next President. It is the great masses, the popular impulses, growing out of General Taylor's own distinguished and remarkable merits, i propel ly represented by an inde,endent press th*t u> 110 mttu or bet ?f men, or any club in ?xi?teao0 * . The Police System in New York.?We are confident there is but one opinion entertain* ed of the police system at present in operation in New York, and tlnrt is that it fail# to answer ibe expectations of its originators, and is inad?- , i|iiate to the prevention of ciiine, not but that the number of arrests is greater since its establishment than ever before, but of tins more | ant)n. i?iuce we have list written on this subject we liave investigated the working of the new police , | system, and we are satisfied that h great deal of i its inefficiency is owing to the manner in which ; i the members are appointed. The appointing j j power rests in the Mayor; and that official tp- 1 1 points, on the recommendation of the aldermen j of the stveral wards, Tom, Dick, and Harry, and all other loafers who hang around the J polls at election times, and work with all their might tor the success of a certain candidate; | who, in many cases, gives a promise before hand, in case of his success, he will have those , men appointed; and these men generally are ap, pointed to the police. Now, how is it possible, : that pure, moral, respectable men, can be found I in the police, when this is the manner in which I they are appointed1? We do not mean to assert | that our police force is composed of this description of men : but from the manner in which thev are appointed, it is reasonable to suppose that a j great many of them are composed of these materials. We all know what is the character of those men who neglect their own business, and eater into electioneering forthe promotion of men to ill" office s of aldermen and assistant aldermen. This is one grand defeci iu the system, and we should be glad to see it remedied. The appointing power should not be allowed to remain as it is?but it will never be altered or amended until our citizens, and principally our tax payers, will leuru to separate our municipal affairs from the general politics of the country. It is of the highest importance that the police should be men of ch 'raoter and respectablestanding, and we think Wf might have them so, if there was a board of examiners, composed of an equal number of wh'gs and democrats, to sift the character and | reputation of evrry man who applies for an | office in the police. There are stringent ordinances against en- , cumbering th<- streets and sidewalk*, against hanging signs further from stores than a certain : distance, aeainst selling lottery tickets and keeping policy offices, against driving quicker than a certain rate through the streets?in a word, we have laws which, if enforced, would make this noble city of ours one of the best conducted, j most orderly and best regulated in th* world ? They are not put in force, although the police are i bound bylaw to enforce them Let a policeman j make a descent on one ot tli* lottery or policy shops in Broadway, and the chances are against his holding office another year. The owner of such shop possesses political influence, which he j will exert against that policeman ; and he will be backed by all his associates in the same business, i in running and hunting down the faithful officer who has dar^d to fulfill his duty by enforcing I the law. Will the policeman do his duty under j such circumstances ? Will he deprive himself and family of bread by fulfilling his duty 1 The same may be said of all other corporation ordinances?they cannot be enforced as long as the police appointing power is regulated as it is. But the police must do something to show the people that they are not altogether idle?that they do something at least to earn the money which they receive from ttie city treasury. Accordingly, we find that the number ol arrests for slight and trivial offences?if offences they are? w i re never so large as they have been since the ; new system of police went into operation, while i ; at the same time crime has increased in a fright- i j ful ratio. Not one of ten complaints that are j | laid before the corporation attorney, is j rose- | cuted by that functionary, because they are ridi- j culous and frivolous; and we are satisfied that j [ it our citizens would subject themselves to trie 1 trouble and inconvenience of pros-cuting policemen for undue exercise of their little brief authority, there are not a hundred policemen | in the city that would be found worthy of j being retained in office. There is, therefore, a direct temptation for them to exceea their duty, i They know they must do something for their j money; and when they cannot, under fear of : losing their situations, do what the law declares I they shall do, they use their own judgment in the j matter, and arrest on their own responsibility; j and what the judgment of some of them may be j worth, can be seen from the returns of some of those worthies, showing-their inability to write or spell their own names. If these policemen hear two persons speaking a little louder than j usual at the corner of a street, they approach to j see what the maiter is. They eye the persons, to see whether they are respectable ; if they i are, they will immediately command, in a J Dutch or an Irish brogue, the two per- ; sons to talk easier. Such impudence and assumption will not be borne. He is told I to go about his business?words are exchanged, and the result is that the two quiet persons, who may be good citizens, are taken to : the station house, and lodtred there tor the night. ! The policeman makes his compUint, the prison- 1 ers are confia-.d a'l night, and all this could be i avoided if the policeman knew his duty. But, | in case men, who are known to be what is call- I ed fighting characters?men who are known to be able to use their muscles tolerably freely? make any noise, there is no interference with th??m They can commit any thing short of murder with impunity; and if you are attacked ! I by a spt of rowdies, and robbed and beaten, you j { will in vain cry on the police for protection ? j I Not onr in such cases is to be seen. It is the law-abiding citizen, who will not strike or knock down the ofiicrs of the law, who suffers most from the present system. Wi- hope to see this defect in our police system remedied; and the only way to remedy it, is to place the appointing power in the Mayor, to dc usf-a i>y mm on me recommenaauon 01 a | board of examiner?, composed of men of both parties But, above all, the aldermen and assiitant aldermen of the city should have nothing to do with the matter. Reports aid Rsportino ?We mn9t again impress on committees the necessity of providing the gentlemen of the press with suitabl** accommodations, if they wish to tee correct and lull reports of their doings in this journal. This is generally a subordinate consideration, whereas it should be the first and most important. A speaker in a public meeting may address five hundred or five thousand?we report him, and we place him in an entirely different light?we place him at once before an audience of thirty or forty thousand. How important, therefore, it is that h? should be correctly reported?jnd how can mstice be done him if a reporter has only a farthing candle and a ricketty table, eight inches by t>-n in dimensions, for liis accommodation. We trust tins will be borne in mind, and that we shall not be again obliged to refer i to the mitter. (.fnerai, Taylor's Letter*.?General Tay- ; lor's famous letter in reply to the War Depart- j ment, which we published exclusively yesterday j morning, has not only delighted his friends, but I been admired and perused by all parties. His I epistolary correspondence has always been admired, but his last letter is conceived with such fairness, determination, spirit and independence, J that it will create a great deal of sympathy amonp the people, and tuny produce effects in his favor, beyoi.d any thing that httfe yet come from his j jen j COLLXQIS AND LtAENlNS IN TliK UnITSO SrATXS. ?From the number of colleger and academies scattered through the United States, and from the great number of young gentlemen who annually graduate ut these establishments, it might be supposed that the United States produce more finished scholars, in the most comprehensive sense, than any other nation in existence ; yet the lamentable fact is apparent, that we have not a superabundance of finished scholars, although it must be admitted that, us a general tiling, education is more abundant here tlnn in any other country. What we mean to say is this, that the United States do not produce as many finished and perfect scholars, in proportion to the facilities we enjoy, and the mean3 we have at our command, as we ought to do. A large majority of our people in every State in the Union cen " read and write, and cypher toobut how few are they whose extensive and erudite learning entitle them to rank as lights in the world at large! To be sure, wherever the English language is ?po k<*n, me name oi v?cuBicr id ucaru?wucicvci the dead languages are perused as a study, the name of Anthon and other distinguished scholars are household words; but in proportion to our means, we caunot claim as many brilliant names as we might. The causes which have produced, and are producing this backward state of things, are worthy of thought and consideration; and the first and principal of these is, in our opinion, the railroad go-ahead, high-pressure and burst-boiler system ot education adopted in our colleges, schools, and academies?a systt-m which is peculiar to the Uuited States, and quite at variance with that pursued in England, and other foreign countries. We claim superiority for the United StateB over every other country, in everything except this; but when it comes to this, it grieves us toadmitthat we are behind them. Our young men are taken from their studies when their minds are, strictly speaking, only sufficiently expanded to commence and pursue them. A youth is sent to school, or the academy; before he knows the elements of his own language the Latin gra nmar is placed in his hands; with a smattering only of this, and a rough idea of the construct ion of that language, Virgil is put before him?the Greek grammar follows next, and so on to the end of the chapter. By the time the period fixed for the termination ot his education has arrived, he is sent out on the world with a heterogeneous mass of half digested Latin and Greek in his mind, of no earthly use for any practical purpose, and the chances are that he will forget the little knowledge he has acquired in one year after he receives his diploma. How many of youth are there who have not submitted to this grinding process of being taught, this high pressure system of education ! The design of our higher colleges is to produce finished scholars; but how can they do it with such a system of education as we speak ol 1 How often, says Bishop Doane, " are the names of Plato and Tully upon tongues that have not mastered the elements of their respective languages! Ilow many have 4 gone over' Virgil, without a trace ot his refinement, or Homer, -? - ?- . j c l:. : ? .... i WllUOUlil arcam Ul mo iiuiiiuiauiciium iu nature!" True for-him, and sorry are we that we have bo many living evidences of the truth of the remark. The present system is bad. Erudition or scho. larship cannot be obtained by the high pressure system at present adopted. They must be acquired by slow degrees. The student should be perfect in the elementary principles of a language, before he is permitted to move a step farther. The foundation must be solid, or the superstructure will totter and tremble. A youth cannot be a finished scholar in a month, or a year, or five years; and parents who expend their money in having their children educated on the supposition that they can, will be mistaken in the end. No; the sooner this lightning process of educating American youths be abolished, the better. Opzila Critics and Chevaliers ?The affairs, of the Italian opera are beginning to be amusing. The denunciations of American tacte for music, contained in the recent articles of the French paper, written by Mr. Gailliardet and Mr. Trobriant, will most likely be productive of some fun. We have received a notice in reply to these articles, written in & style and in a hand-writinp, which looks very like that of eur old friend, the Chevalier Wikoff, and possessing much wit and sarcasm upon the other chevaliers. We may give it in a day or two, for the amusement of our musical readers. In the mean time great prepa rations are making to give a warm reception to Madame Biscaccianti to-morrow evening, who has succeeded tremendously in Boston. What kind of a reception she may receive we can hardly say. Among a portion of the Italian and French dilettanti, there is a strong feeling of resentment against her, singularly enough growing out of the failure of P.itti. If their resent- | ment will be visited upon Biscaccianti, we do not know, but the probability is there will be a tremendous house to-morrow night, and great difference of opinion upon her merits as a vocalist, an artist, and every thing else. Fun is blew- ( ing. Let us have fair play?artists, critics, , chevaliers, &c. &c. Ultjr tnMlllgMic*. Thf.

Pope Pius in his Glory?A Mystery Ex plained ?We translated, some time ago, several articles from the papers of Switzerland, received at this office, giving an account of what appeared to be a retrograde movement in the career of reform on the part of the Pope.? We confess we felt some concern, and almost began to entertain Home apprehensions on the subject. Altogether it was a mystery to us. It appeared by those articles that the Pope had rejected the petition of the Swiss Catholics to interfere in their favor against the Jesuits?that he had favored the political views of the latter, and | that on the defeat of the Sunderbond he had been induced to order three days of fasting and lamentation to be observed on the "melancholy'' occasion. This naturally gave great chagrin to the liberal Catholic* of all Switzerland.? j We ourselves felt somewhat mystified on the subject, and began to think it might even be possible that the Pops was about to fall into the same snare and pit into which Lnuis XVI. fell Louis was, at the beginning of the French Revo- 1 lution, eminently popular as a reformer, so long 1 aa he wa9 sincere; but when he turned back and | joined the Tories, or rather was overcome by I , them, and followed their pernicious counsels, a ' ) revulsion of public feeling took place, and he be- i 1 came afterwards as cdious to the popular mind t and feeling, as he before had been lovdy and be- j * loved. We trembled for the Pope, who had our , ^ best wishes; and we began to tear whether he , * had not fallen into bad hands. But now the ! -1 mystery is cleared up. The following article j , from the Semaphore, of Marseille?, explains the i 1 matter, and shows, we are happy to say, that, " though the Pope had been for a moment deceiv- <j rd, and made the subject of a vile intrigue and | misrepresentation, he has now broken the [ bonds, discovered the cheat, returned to the i t people, and?is safe. J ' Rome. Jin. 2,18i8 I ' "The underhand schemes of the Jesuit party tending : * to exoite the people against the Sovereign, and the Sot- ? ereign against the people by means of false rumors end insinuations cleverly combined, have already been spo- ; " teen of. This plan, so often and so vainly employed, has ? Inst again failed, as you will see from th? I olio wing re 8 reoital:- On the 1st, Rome was sad and fail of aare; the * people who are generally so joyous and animated in the ' olemn fetei, were silent and disquieted.

We m?y nention that Pentland, tbe o'.own, takes a benefit next Wednesday evening fiowKHt Theatre ?Though thia w?u managed thea re always abounds with variety, and never licks atTactions, yet last evening it had, in our eyes, an inTeased attraction in the company and presenoe of tbe [allant Central Quitman and suite, who were there by ipecial invitation. We were much pleased with the >?arlng and deportment of these Mexican heroes. They rere welcomed, on entering, with loud huzzas, and sat n a front box. decorated with flails and evergreens in heir honor. "80 should desert iu arms be crowned." Is to the play and performers, we oonfess we were a*to. linhed. It was Coiman's atnuring oomedy of ' Wild )*ts," and it was performed in suoh a manner is Moll era and his troupe would have played be ore Louts Quatorz'j The actors, their costume, he scenery?all waa in perfect harmony; and re oonfess that the few time* we have visited the Bowey, bavin* been accustomed to witness merely or ohiefly aelo-irsmatlo pieces, we were not prepared to see a Are iOt comtdy ot gentetl life played so perfectly, to nk.ilully, and got up In all Its departments aa faultlessly.?

Mis. Phillips pluyed in her u<ual style, which ins rendered her so [Opular; while Miss Jordan acquit,ed herself admirably. Chatham Theatre ?There was a pretty full house it the Chatham last evening; but in consequence ofthe ludden indisposition of Mrs. Wilkinson, there was an mtire change of performance, with the exception of ;he opening piece, " Sudden Thoughts." The humorous faro* of''Love, Law and Physic"' was substituted 'or the u Texan Ringers," Mr. Taylor taking the >art of tfce Lawyer, end Mr. Lansing that of :he Clerk or Wormwood. Beth kept the house sonvulssd with lnugliter throughout The shrewd, peculating fortune hunting lawyer, who fur cash sould even marry his own servant girl, waa well jersoi.ated by Mr Taylor, while Mr. Lansing, as Wormwood bis clerk, taking a fiendish pleasure in letting every one at loggerheads, was a hqmorous piece r>f acting, betraying much cemia pvwer. At the end of ;he performance, Mr. Lansing was called out before the surtain, and 011 making his appearance was loudly sheered by the audience, whom he briefly addressed. ;bauking them for the flattering compliment they had >aid him. The performance of the evening, uotwithitanding the change, passed off in a manner highly credtable to the company. Castlk Oardkm ?This beautifullooation end spacious building, oapable of accommodating about ssven thouland persons, was orowded last evening to overflowing., t being a tribute of respect to the memory ofthe lanent'd Mendelssohn, and the programme announcing he names of the most distinguished musical ladles and ;entlemen of the city, at an early hour, the avenues o the garden, which, at this season of the year, wears uch a gloomy aspect, seemed to be as thronged as hough the citizens, after a tedious day's labor, repaired ;here to inhale the refreshing breezes of a calm, invi^o'ating summer's evening. We never before beheld such k monster meeting in this city, and it must b* truly gra,itying to the musical societies of New York, whose adnlratlon of the great abilities ?f the lamented composer nduced tnem to oombiue tneir scientific etrorts In reipi ct to departed worth, to Bad a response in the attendees of an assemblage of the largest and most respectable citizens we have ever seen within the walls of any place of amusement in this city. The first pieoe was the -Maicia Funebre," by Beethoven, which was given with i solemnity and musical science, ?ueh as the gentlemen it the head of this splendid affair are capable of performing. The " Cherus of St Paul" was equal! v effective, and the aria from " Elijah," by Mendelssohn, by Mr. Leach and chorus, was excellent. The terxelto by Miss Northall, Mrs C. E. Horn, aud Mrs. Bevins, was a combination of the sweetest harmony. In fine, when such names as Mips Northall, Madame Otto, and Mrs. E. Loder, together with a great many others of high character and reputation as vocalists, were announced, we ire not astonished at the meeting last evening; but it itrgues still more, that we are every day arriving to a nearer perfection in each department of the fine arts Much credit is due to Mr. O. Loder. fjr his excellent arrangement of the whole affair. We hope to see Castle Uarden, next summer, when, we hear, the Havana Italian opera company will return, present as brilliant an irray of the fashion and beauty of this oity, as appeared th ere last evening. Christt's MinstrelsLast evening closed the eighteenth week of these singers' concerts, this winter, In New York Such a continuous run of patronage towards >ne single band ot performers is, indeed, unparalleled Hut what is still mors unparalleled is, that the run is iot yet waning in the leas:; on the contrary, it seem* to ncreaee nightly.

Many b-au'iful suits had been made expressly for the event, and besides th'Se, .Mr Taylor, ol Prince street, had a room fitted up in the building, where he furnished charges to such as wished to vary their dress; his assortm nt wjs complete, and lienoe there waa no want of the fir t requisite towards mukiLg up a good display. These tunny dress balls are, as yet. comparatively new enterprises, aod having n wardrobe at band, is a good idea, not only for the owner of the dresses, but for tho participants in the pleasures of thedauoe The variety afforded by the freijueut chuuge of attire, keeps up the novelty to the last, und the eye fails to tire with a constant view of the aims eet of characters.

She was brought before the bar of justice by the above officer, omid the jeers and vulgar remarks (some of which were too personal for publication,) of a crowd of polioemen, pettifogging lawyers, their runners skinners, and hangers on, who daily congregate about the Tombs.

Magistrate -How was it, Jane, that you dressed up in this rig??did you leave your husband in bed, whila you paraded about in bis breeches? Jane hung down h?r head, and still refused to answer. Mamisthate ?Why, this is a siugular fact, that,by wearing the breeches you have lost tbe use of yonr tongue Th;s fact, if it was generally known, would prove a blessing to some husbands, who would be willing to furnish their wives with two pair of breeches, if the same i'iTict could only be producsd. Officer, have yon searched Jane, to asoertain whether sbe oarries any unlawful weapon? Officer?Yes, your honor, I havo searched her w>11, and didn't find anything that would injure any one.
