Ttic Circulation of the Herald. May 15, Monday 19.728 copier The publication of the Herald commenced yesterday at 5 minute* before 4 o'clock, and finished at 15 minutes past 7 o'clock. Notice to Snbtrribrrt, Our subscriber* in tbe Fifteenth ward nre requested to pay their subscription money, from Friday last, to Mr. John Connery, the new carrier on that route ; the old carrier, Mr. J. N. Hathaway. wa? removed on that day The Herald will soon be served earlier la the morn* lag. Our patrons mast bear with us for a short time longer Our new machinery is nearly completed, and will probably be in full operation in lea* than a month; we will then distribute the uows throughout the city at day-brt>ak. Jf necessary Meanwhile we will do the best we ouu Kxpactad Arrival of Gen. Soott In New York. General Scott, of the American army, the second conqueror of Mexico, and rival of Hernandez Cortex, may be daily expected to arriw? at this uort. On the 30tli ult. he arrived at Vera Cruz from Mexico, and, in company with his -sLitT, immediately embarked on board the brig fwPetersburgh, bound for' York direct. The vessel has been suteei^3aya nt sea, and he may, therefore, be expected to be in the midst of us in a very few days. This is the latest and most authentic account received from Njff Orleans, and was published in the journals of yesterday. Generals Pillow, .Ttuwoa, and pushing have already arrived at Nevr Orleans,' indicating, most likely, that the Court of Inquiry has at last been adjourned in Mexico, and if to meet again, to meet in the United States. The movements of our distinguished military men are becoming very interesting, from the early approach of the two great conventions for the nomination of Presidential candidates, and also of the general election in November next. General Scott'a arrival in this metropolis will be the flienal for a areafland prominent movement of his friends, in connection with the whig convention, the nomination to be mad^w it, and the election which will follow. In lftJ^kjeneraF Scott was made a very prominent candidate for the Presidency, through the efforts of certain politicians in this city and throughout this State. Many of these men have recently adopted General Taylor as their candidate, but, as we have every reason to believe, merely for the purpose of keeping the place warm for the arrival of General Scot, as soon as he might come among thefh, and be ready for the action of the approaching convention. The time li now at hand. The original friends of General Scott in this city, and in this region of country, are preparing, we understand, togive thisdistinguished commander a great popular reception on his arrival here, and to make a movement calculated to place him among the most prominent candidates for nomination by the whig convention, which is to meet in Philadelphia. By the report of the proceedings of the Common Council last evening, published in another column, it will be seen that the in lyor sent in a message to them, adverting to the expected arrival of the general, and suggesting that measures be taken to give him a suitable public reception. A committee was appointed, accord ingiy, 10 matte me appropriate arrangements. The arrival of General Scott in the city, and the popular demonstration which awaits him, will hav. a very important influence on the whig convention To be sure, he has written a great many silly and ridiculous letters, which Secretary Marcy hae taken advantage of, and endeavored, by the means which they furnished him with, to prevent him irom assuming a strong and powerful position anions the candidates for the Presidency; but however ridiculous those hasty plates of literary soup may be, and although they may injure him very materially with men of sense and politicians, yet, with the great mass of the popular voters, his military deeds in Mexico, nnd his general military heroism, will nlways be sufficient to carry him through, should he be placed in any important attitude before them, as a candidate. General Scott.no doubt, has his weaknesses and his soft parts; but what man is without them, of some kind ! We are, therefore, prepared to see a considerable portion of the old i ' i? ^~~1 u~~- i irit'iius u* vTciiriai .^vruii aascmuic atuuuu linn in this city, make a strong and powerful demonstration of regard for liim, and endeavor to place him in the attitude of a prominent candidate before the whig convention, even in opposition to all others. As matters now stand, Scott's prospects are as good as those of any other candidate. Mr. Clay and General Taylor, from the recent current of events, have become very hostile to each other,and their mutual friends can never harmonise, in the convention or out of it, although they may, after fighting, settle down on some third man as a compromise : and werhaus (General Scott has as pood a chance of being the compromise candidate as any other individual. Asa popular candidate, he certainly, in spite of all his letters, epistolary hasty bo up, and every thing else, would be more available than Daniel Webster, Judge McLane, Tom Corwin, Crittenden, Clayton, or any other man that could be named. Affairs are now coming to close quarters in reference to the two conventions, and some amusement may he expected in a few days, growing out f the conjunction of the politicians of both parties, and the quarrels among the | various candidates for the nomination. We go for the fullest plate of fun. State of Ei.**opf.?Protection to American Commute.?In view of the events which have recently taken place in the Xorth of Europe, the indications are strong that England will find it a difficult matter to escape being drawn into a war with fierniany, unless the disputa between Ilenmark and that country shall be speedily settled in a manner satisfactory to all parties. The kinp of Frusnia, it Hp|*'Hrs, unable to withstand the impe> tuoaity of his subjects, and the force of public opinion which was pressing on him, crossed the Eider recently, and at the lat>t accounts was in possession of Schlesw ig, having driven out the Danes, ._l.? : ...i.J a.j <i U..J i wimi, ii ir ciniru, uiu iiui i* ii? ?i iiinii m? * nau iir.tuc n fierce and obstinate resistance, notwithstanding the protest that had been made against such a course by I.x>rd I'alnierston, on the part of the British government. Whether this protest will be followed up by a declaration oi war against Germany by England, or not, we do not know; but when it ip known that that nation is bound by treaty to pre*ervr the integrity of that part of Denmark, we do not see that any course is left for her to pursue, but to ncnd a fleet at once to the assistance of Denmark, and maintain the terms of the treaty. She is not, to be sure, in a position to enter into hostilities; but she must fulfil the terms of the treaty between her and 1>< nmark at all hazards, <ut acknowledge in the face of the world that she lias not the ability to do so, She has carried out this treaty on former ocrm.M<?ri!?. At one period Hnssia threatened to invade flint part of Europe, and Engl.iud protested against it ? an infraction musim i la nl ir??ty '}%*> | Mfew al,4jiiioiiP(| t,y ?W? aliall, l?*iVt!||??<*^ptetfttV4iitionr to manage tfieir affairs in tli?ir^Mrn way^tnti let England adojj|any course which tttay seentoest to m-r in the emergency. Our only object nt thin tune in referring to the subject, is to point out the danger which will beset our American commerce, t in the event of hostilities breaking out between j Germany and England. If such should be the case, I the Bultic would be the theatre of operations, and our commerce, which is very extensive in that j part of the world, would be at the mercy of each of i the belligerents, unless it were properly and ade- ; qnately protected by a sufficient naval force; and I in such an event, would, in all probability, be triimJi-il ntMin niriiin. as it was in the warfare which succeeded the French revolution of 1789. j It must be borne in inind ut the present day, that England has not formally abandoned the impudent and outrageous right which she in past years claimed, of visiting our merchant ships and impressing our seamen. Her naval system never has been in good odor with the seafaring portion of her population, and the probability now is, that in case she becomes engaged in a war which requires a large naval force, she will be compelled to resoit to extraordinary straits to man her fleet; and unlets deterred by the presence of a strong American fleet, we would not be at all surprised if that arro(ant power were to resort to the same expedients as she did, in that respect, on former occasions, and which led to our war of 1812. We will put it to the American people, and to their rlyresentatives in Congress, whether they are willing to have these British ontrages repeated on our commerce 1 Whether* they are willing to see their flag disrespected and insulted?made a by-word among nations, as it was previous to una?or ratner, wnetner tney wouia not preter, that at any expense and at all hazards, it should be respected by people of every clime under heaven, and its character held sacred 1 We submit, therefore, whether it is not the dictate of self-respect and of patriotism, that we shall, at once, send all our disposable naval force into those seas, for the protection of our commerce and our flag, with explicit directions to the officers in command to protect them to the fullest extent, and to punish promptly and severely any infringement upon our rights, come from what quarter it may. We aTe confident that the American people do not desire that our ships should be again visited, and our honest sailors again dragged from their berths by liveried naval officers, to fight the battles of a foreign people. We call upon Congress, therefore, as the representatives of the American people, to bestir themselves in this matter, and with all reasonable expedition to take adequate measures for the protection of American commerce in the European seas, and not permit the acts of former days to be again practised. A powerful fleet must be despatched to the north of Europe as soon as practicable, or the tflorv and honor of our flan will be atrain tarnished by an arrogant and overbearing nation. American Opinions on the French Elections. ?The intelligence which we published, on the arrival of the steamship Cambria, disclosing the peaceable termination of the popular elections in Paris and throughout France, has given great sa-; tisfaction to the community, and has created a general belief that the French of the present day have more practical good sense in the matter of public affairs than we have heretofore given them credit for. Delight and pleasure are expressed on all hand*, and principally at the defeat of the socialist party in Paris, by such a large majority as appears to have voted against them. The misrepresentations cast on the French people, with the view of shaking public confidence in their capacity to conduct a republic, have been magnified by the efforts of the English newspaper press, and partly by the silly views and opinions promulgated in certuin journals in this country, which have run crazy on socialism, Fourierism, and all other sorts of isms. The English press is guided entirely by the ideas which spring from monarchy or aristocracy. Their instincts are towards such a form of government, and against any kind of government which proceeds from the good sense ol the masses of the people of any country. In such quarters, the violent demonstrations and ultra sentiments of the socialists of Paris, are taken as part and parcel of the public mind of the people and of the r rencn nation, in tde same manner, we have seen the English journals assume that the ultra opinions *>f some of the ridiculous cliqvtt which spring up in New York and other large cities, express the opinions of our masses, on matters of government How often have we observed that the abolition fa natic6 or the Fourierite philosophers, in parts of the United States, or some other section of ultras who have succeeded in creating a riot and a row, quoted by the English journals, and made the foundation of a long philosophical, homily on the impossibility of the United States continuing in theirpresent state of organization for any length of time. They treated the new French republic in the same way as they have treated the American republic for the lasi thirty or forty years. But the issue of the first elec tion in France has dispelled those misrepresentations of the English press on the one hand, and the ridiculous projects attributed to the French republic, in certain portions of the American press, on the other side. The Fourierite journal in this .city, which is the organ of all sorts of ridiculous whims, 111 politics, u:i_ u.. .L-I .1 icu^iuii, ui |niiiuBU|uiy, vil: uir i riuunc, laments mo defeat of Lcdru Kollm and Louie Ulanc, and in the name of its Paris correspondent, who must b? a w i se man indeed, predicts that Fourierism, or socialism, has no chance now, hut l>y a general war. on the continent. This idea seems possible enough. Such ultra and ridiculous notions, certainly have little chance in F.urope or in this country, hut through a civil war, or intestine war, on the one hand, or a general war between nations on the other. The anti-rent agitators in New York, never committed murder, or snowed symptoms of insurrection, until they were taken up by the socialist organ of the city of New York. The truth is, that all those ultra philosophers, of every kind, how creat soever their professions of iwac? and philanthropy may be, are pressed along by the movement wliich they originated, to commit the greatest excesses, and most violent outbreaks on sound sense nnd sound democracy, in every country. We are ha^py, however, to find that France is beginning to understand her position, and that the sound intelligence and instinct of the people of that republic have rebuked and demolished the socialists at the past election, and probably will be able to keep them in their isolated position until a republic is finally established by the new constitution which they ex|>cct from the National Assembly.

There 1* a great time coming, Tile Crop*. The wheat harvest was to have commenced the fli* week of the present month, In the neighborhood of Montgomery. Ala T he aecounts are favorable, and good crops are anticipated iu tiarylautl 'U> r?i<* fiP 1 itnd jvrliups police, begin in p*w\i noim" curiuu* ipecititens of the cJunfM effect?d bv the new flede of practice, which haa grown Up nnder the new ;o?:titution, and the- gradu.il progress of thr Hght, iberty, philosophy, love, and philanthropy of the ige. One of these reports gi\";sa striking instance ?f the new practice at the bar. We refer to the nut before Judge Hurlbut, in which Joseph L. 1 kVhite, Esq., and Mr. Bowman, were the opposing i :ounsel. There was nothing particularly intereatng in that suit, or in the principles involved in the lecision of the court. The most novel feature was < he new practice introduced, which, on looking at 1 he written code, we find is not inserted, although t r?ossiblv lliav be discovered in the unwritten :ode. After a speech of great eloquence, vas' >ower, and much leg it acumen, Mr. Bowman 1 charges Mr. White with making false statements. Mr. White having exhibited equal eloquence and ?qual legal acumen, replies to this charge by a compete volley of law itself, in the shape of some pon- 1 ierous volumes, at the head of his opponent, taking fleet on the o$ frontis. In fact, there was a regular rough and tumble fight, as part of the new code if practice, before Judge Ilurlbut, but which was ruled not to be in the new written code, although it may be found in the unwritten one. This mode of conducting suits at law, on the part of highly respectable and learned counsel, seems to have increased since the reform in the constitution ind laws. In fact, its novelty is great at the bar of ihe court of justice, although it is frequently seen at the bars of oyster cellars. Only a few days betore, a similar code of practice was presented for the admiration of the public, by Yankee Sullivan, Esq., and Mr. Thomas llyer, at the bar of an oyster cellar in Broadway, where they dispense justice, oysters, law, brandy-and-water, wit, democracy, and egg-nog. On comparing the two cases? that of Joseph L. White vcrtut Mr. Bowman, and Yankee Sullivan vertus Thomas Hyer?we are not sure but the latter have the advantage in point of respectability and science, in the application of the principles of the new code of practice. There was decidedly much more neience in the latter case than in the former; but there was certainly an equal amount of law and Christianity in both. Another singular case, growing out of the new code of practice, is coming before one of our courts, likewise. It seems there is a libel suit between t!ie Right B(*verend Bishop Hughes, of the Catholic Church of New-York, and Mr. Editor Bennett, of the same metropolis. By the new code of practice, introduced under the new constitution, both parties in a suit at law may demand the examination of each other, to see if they can malfp nnv fiiastnvarts r\f nnv kins? tn thp advantage of either. This is a kind of mutual inquisition founded on Jesuit practice, and originating in the old Roman civil law. In the libel case in question, between the bishop and the editor, we understand arrangements have been made to have a legal inquisition into each other's views, principles, purposes, and personal history, for the last twenty years, before one of the judges of the Circuit Court. This novel movement originated on the side of the bishop. Possibly, editor Bennett, who is also a Catholic, and a great adherent of his Holiness Pope Pius the Ninth, has not sufficiently disclosed all his sins at the confessional, that useful and ancient ceremony of religion, and the bishop wants to find out, under the new code of practice, possibly, the number, quality, and color of the editor's sins, for the purpose of measuring out the punishment due to him in this world, in order to diminish the length of time that he will be adjudged to purgatory in the next. This will be a curious investigation, under the new code of practice, introduced in this State. Both parties, we understand, will be attended by their respective learned counsel?Mr. Charles O'Connor on the part of the bishop, and Mr. Benjainia Galbraith on the part of the ?ditor. There may be other peculiar instances growing out of the new code of practice, which have escaped our attention; but these are the most prominent that have recently turned up. We shall watch the progress of our new constitution, our new laws, and our new code of practice, and report faithfully to the public the novelties which spring up, and the new principles that may be evolved. Courts of justice, good oyster cellars, and auricular confession, are very useful, and deserving institutions. Provisions rn Ireland.?The state of the crops in Ireland, is spoken of by all the Irish journals in the most favorable terms. The promise of an ubundant harvest looks most cheering; but the people have not the means wherewith to purchase food, and the alms-houses are all filled up. The most violent of the ultra-Irish repeal journals hint at a disposition on the part of the people not to allow the provisions to leave the country, and, in the present condition of the countiy, such a hint, if acted upon, would bring on the crisis which all are looking forward to with so much anxiety. Should the people in Dublin be disarmed, under the proclamation lately issued from the Castle, the country 'districts?in Tipperary, Kerry, Limerick, and elsewhere?jhow every disposition to breakout into open revolt. The O'Connclls have been openly denounced in their native c?*nty of Kerry, and tinloudest in their denunciations has been Denis S. Lawlor, late a high sheriff of the county, and a gentlemen of rank and fortune. The Catholic clergy of the county are also coming out in opposition to the O'Connells, and this puts an extinguisher upon their popularity forever. The people seem determined to keep their own food in their own country, to.prevent the recurrence of famine again. These are "signs of the times." Later from N'kw Granada.?By an arrival from Salmnilla.'wc are in receipt of intelligence from Bogota to the 5th ult. Congress wai still in session. and there had been sonu-what of an excitement in it, regarding the matter of expelling the" Jesuits from the republic. It appears amotion was made in Congress by the opposUioBLparty, to cX|H'l the Jesuits from thecountrj^ A's a matter of courtesy, the proposer of the motion enquired of the Minister of State what me feelings of the government were on the subj<y. The Secretary of State on the following day m^e n most violent sp?cch, in which he deprecated tjic measure without stint, stating that the opinions he then uttered were likewise those of the President. This action oi the President sending in his own l>ersonal opinion on a matter subinilted to him1>y Congress, and neglecting even the formality of a cabinet council to consult on it, gave great offer ce to the opimsition party. Don Florentino Gonzalez, the under secretary of state, and an anti-Jesuit in politics, was so disgusted at this rude manner of treating Congress by the President, that he resigned his post at once His resignation was accepted after three davs'deliberation bv the Premium ami I ut tin* last accounts his successor had not been chosen-; and there the matter rests for the (iresent.

Mr. C. declared in the course of his remarks, that " the state ot Europe admonishes us to husband our resources, so that we may be prepared for any emergency that may arise" ; and this was one of the grounds on which he based his opposition to the contenmlated inilit?rv Vumtan Mr. Bagby will speak on the question to-diiy. In the House, the bill for refunding moneys advanced to tit out volunteers for Mexico, was passed. A rfBolution was also adopted, calling upon the Secretary of the Treasury for a report of the amount of breadstuffs, cotton and specie exported to England during two specified periods, so as to compare the relative operations of the tariffs of '42 and '46.

On motion, Mr. Johnson's resolution, calling upon the President for the names of officers serving In the army, with others, whose nominations were withheld from the Senate, were taken up. Mr. Borland, of Arkansas, spoke at some length against the resolution. He contended that it was inquisitorial and unconstitutional. He argued that the constitution does not require thut appointmeuts made during the recess of Congress shall be submitted, but Tested them solely in the President, and that when they were once made by him, they were even beyond his control, and military commission* thus conferred, cannot be taken from an officer exoept by sentence of court martial for misconduct. When Mr. Borland had concluded, the subject, with the morning business, was Informally laid aside. the extension of aid to yucatan. The bill providing for the extension of aid to Yucatan. was iaken up; when Mr. Ualhoi-n rose, and addressed the Senate at some length, in opposition to the hill Anil intfl nil oHr,?r that tho case of Yucatan, oven as stated by the President, dous not come within tin- declaration)! of Mr. Mourou. and that thuHr declarations do not afford the slightest ground for the adoption of the bill as reported by the committee on Foreign Relations. Tie said that wo had no proof that England contemplated assuming sovereignty over Yucatan, and even if she did it would not be a caso within the declaration of Mr. Monroe, as it would be voluntary on the part of Yucatan. These declarations, too. in the broad sense now given to them, had been most emphatically disavowed by the republican party. I think three years after being made; and I challenge uny one to produce a single Instance when they had been carried into effect. Instances in which thay had been disregarded were numerous. There might be cases, he would admit, of encroachments that would require our utmost opposition. He would instance Cuba, which should never be permitted to pass into the hands of any other more powerful nation than those of Old Spain: no formidable powocr should be allowed to supersede Old Spain in the possession of the Islaud.? He had been asked whether he would interfere if it was proved that England was about to take possession of Yucatan. Ho would not, because the occupation of Yucatan would add nothing to her power. It would not be interfering or cutting off our trade with the West Indies. He adduced other reanons against the military occupation of Yuoatan, which would be expensive. The state of Europe admonishes us to husband our resources, so that we may be prepared for any emargency that may arise. He opposed the bill, and all the amoudmatits that had been offered. When he had concluded. Mr. Bagby, of Alabama, obtained the floor, b'ut gave way to a motion for adjournment.

He bn the floor to-morrow. VENTILATION or VESSELS. On motion, the Hodse lJftl providing for the better ventilation of passenger vessels, was taken up, and after being read the third time, was passed.

Mr. Andrew Stewart, of Pennsylvania, submitted a resolution calling upon the Secretary of the Treasury for a report of the amount of breadstuffs and cotton exported to England during two specified period*. showing whether they were increased?by the tariff of 1846. On this motion a debate sprung up in which Mr. Charles J. Ingersoll, Mr. Stewart. Mr. Bayly, of Virginia. and others, participated. Mr. Batlt moved an amendment to the resolution in favour of including specie and breadstuffs for the last twenty years. The resolution was then adopted, and on motion the House adjourned over till to-morrow. Destructive Conflagration In Albany. Alrant. May 15. 1848.
