The publication of the Heral.l commenced yesterday at 18 minutxs past 4 o'clock, and finished at 10 minutes past 8 o'clock. Important Political Demonstrations?General Taylor In Maryland?Daniel Webster In MasiachiurtU. We publish in our columns to-day, an able political letter written by tlie Hon. William Cost Johnson, of Maryland, and addressed to the Hon. John C. Rous, of Virginia, defending the position, principles and views of General Taylor, as a candidate tor the Presidency, from the attacks made by the latter distinguished gentleman on the former. There is nothing particularly new in the sentiments attributed to General Taylor, and promulgated under the name of Mr. Johnson; for they seem to be coincident with the views expressed in the famous Allison letter, and which appear to have been known to a number of the friends of that distinguished military man, much about the same time, in various parts of the country. The letter of Mr. Botts originated, it appears, in a report made in the Herald of a speech delivered by Cost Johnson, when he was travelling in New York. We have not published Mr. Botts' letter, but we are not sure but he has as good a claim on the columns of the Htrahi as the other. The other paper purports to he the address of the whig members of the Legislature of Massachusetts, and is decidedly a sort of nomination of Mr. Webster for the Presidency, as their first choice, with certain " ambiguous givings out," here and there expressed, that look ruther hostile to Mr. Clay's chances. It is difficult, however, to tell, from the shadowy emanation of Massachusetts opinions, as thus expressed, whether Mr Webster aud his frien Is in New Engl md are favorable to Mr. Clay, General Taylor, or General Scott, as their second choice. They prudently I keep that in the back ground. The document will speak for itself. Of our own promptings we nevpr should have published these documents in our columns, at thi* particular crisis of afftirs, especially as tb?y are somewhat stole and old ; but our position i* such, and the circulation of the Herald is so enlarged, that an application has been made by the friends of General Taylor, in Maryland, and also by those of Mr. Webster, in Massachusetts, to have these papers appear in our co'umns, at all hazards and at any reasonable cost. The friends of General Taylor request us to publish Mr. Johnson's letter, and to charge what we please for the service, promising that the bill shall be paid with pleasure. The friends of Mr. Webster, in Massachusetts, although they do not give us a real name, still offer to pay j from one to five hundred dollars for the publication of their document, and to send the money on its appearance in our columns. Now, to these gentlemen, and to persons of all parties, we have only to say, that this is not the mode in which we transact newspaper business We have no doubt there prevails very generally a sentiment, with persons unacquainted with our principles and our mode of action, that anything can be published in our columns for a liberal and generous compensation. The world of politicians, of parsons, and of players?the good and the bad. the selfish and the liberal, the virtuous and the scoundrels?begin to find out that they have made a 1 mistake in the tactics of the JViric York Herald, ! and, possibly, they will find out more in due pro cess of time. On our own responsibility, and ?t our own ex|>ense, when h public document, h public meeting, or a public speech deserves to be published in the Herald, we are always ready to do it, without reference to the speaker, the writer, or the promulgator. We do this for the benefit of the American people, and we are paid for it by a lihe- : ral and generous patronage of the same American people. We are perfectly independent of that mode of contribution by which the miserable newspaper t:>ols of the two great factions are supported. We are stronger than any taction, or any party, or any Presidential candidate, and they will all find it out before maiiy months are over. We are.strong in truth, in justice, in fair dealing, in independence, intelligence, and in enterprise?in everything that constitutes a moral and intellectual power in an enlightened age. With these views, therefore, we request the friends of fieneral Taylor, in Maryland, who have promised to pay us the full amount of our bill for the publication ol'Mr. Johnson's letter, to contribute lrom one hundred to five hundred dollars, affording to their ability, to the Lying-in-Hospital of Washington or Baltimore, and consider that as : full payment for the publication of the letter in question. When this contribution shall have been made, in either of those cities, we also request them to transmit a receipt to us for the same, in order that we may know it has been done. With regard to the document from Boston, containing the address ol the Legislature of Massachusetts, and which also has been published at a similar request for pay, we beg the parties in Boston?the friends of Mr. Webster?to hand over, likewise, from one hundred to five hundred dollars, according to their ability, to the Lying-in Hospital of Boston, or, if there is no sueh institution there, to some similar charitable institution, and hand over to us the receipt for the same. We want none of these payments ourselves. We are inde]>endcnt. The income arising from the circulation and success of the HnnUl enables us to publish every thing connccted with parties, on our own responsibility, and nt our own expense. We would not exchange our position for the White House itself, which is now occupied bv the diminutive man who will linger there a few months longer. Thus much on the publication of these documents, and our reasons for furnishing them to our readers at this tune. Of the sentiment* and opinions promulgated in them, we have vry little to say. The country is now in the crisis of Presidential nominations. The two great factions are intriguing, morninc, noon and night. The respective candidates and their friends were never in such a state of excitement ; but amid all this excitement, and all this intrigue, we hear very little said of ereat principles, and very little understanding displayed of the new and peculiar condition of the civilized world. The contest for a nomination, by both parties, seems to be guided entirely on personal grounds, with little or no reference to principles or .L ...... fft?? i. ..? .1 l infHJMirrp 111(11 intij HIIDI !?' I' iiuri, uui H grPHI ui'fll, in some channels, with reference to exploded measures and antiquated principle?, that hare been paaa<d and decided upon l>y recent legislation. Two classes of candidate* have l?een thrown up? the military nnd the civil?the fighting men nnd the w riting mvn?and both seem to be on a level with r<'gard to the amount of dignity, propriety and decency with which each, accompanied by his fiends, puts forth his claims?each pushing and i _ runniaf in opposition to tk?- othor,. like die Venogl blaekgwards ol theTive Points or CorU?'? Ho?R of this metropolis. We expect remarkable scenes in the approaching conventions. If the?_be not discreditable and disgraceful to the country, it will be a miracle. Look at the miserable controversies in this great State, between the old hunkers nnd me i? triihurneit ? the amine, the epithets, the tal*ohood.-, which the journals of the two factions art' using towards each other. Almost tha same state of things exists between the two great parties, and between the various candidates und thoir supporters. The principal cause of this demoralization among theiwliticians of (lie day?!>c they whigs or democrats?ariseafromtheir ravenous appetites for the spoils. During the last two years, the policy of the President has increased the annual expendiI tures of the government to nearly fifty or sixty mil| lions of dollars, which vast amount of money is extracted from the people of the United States, in the shape ot taxes; and the vast confederacy of politicians are nothing but the most currupt and sensual plunderers and pensioners on the public und the industry of the country. Our foreign affairs, in connection with Europe, present an unsettled look; and instead of any diminution of taxation for the next few years, there is every pros|>ect of it increasing to sixty, eighty, or i*>rhaps a hundred millions of dollars, which will be taken, in the form of taxes, from the |<ockets of the industrious I masses of the people. Is not this a harrowing picture to look upon 1 What will the democratic or whig convention do to tit.ty these terribly increasing expenditures of the country?this waste of the industry of the land ! ______________ Out Foreign Correspondence.?Some of our contemporaries are boasting prodigiously of the splendor and magnificence of their foreign correcpondence. Without much boasting, we think we may place our foreign correspondence a little ahead of that of any other journal. The foreign correspondence of the Couritr ??<;/ Enquirer is generally too much imbued with the exclusive and aristocratic notions of the English and European aristocracy to be able to give correct views of the popular movements in those quarters. That of the Tribune is so ultra and visionary as to be utterly worthless for all practical purposes. The only reliable foreign letters which have appeared here in the newspapers, so far, are those which have been published in the columnsof the Herald. These, from all parts of Europe, are (Minor me production 01 souna-neanea Americans, acquainted with their own country and foreign afFairs, or they are written by liberal and enlightened writers, favorable to the popular cause in Europe, und not opposed to the rtew movements making there. For the accuracy of these remarks we may fearlessly appeal to the general character of the foreign correspondence which h.i9 appeared in our columns since the breaking out of the late revolutions in Europe. Si-it Against the ex-Oi?eka Managers ?We underat ind th it several of the subscribers are prep iring to bring a .-uit at law ug<tinsl the late Opera m tnagera and proprietors, for the recovery of the subscription money advanced upon certain conditions, namely?of giving so many operas?which conditions have been violated by the recent breaking up of the Opera. This suit will be a very curious affair. Under the new code of practice, it is probable the counsel engaged will, at the commencement of the suit, obtain an order of the court for the examination of the managers and proprietors, at the instance of the prosecutors. A number of curious questions would, no doubt, grow out of such an investiga. tion, such as the following:? "Did you receive the money paid by the subscribers for eighty nights]" " What did you do with that money!" " Was any of it given to the church'?" " Did you ever visit the dressing room behind the curtains?" 41 Did you ever let out your box, retained as manager or proprietor, for half price?" and so on and so on. This suit will certainly bring out some curious developements. We wait with some impatience lor its commencement. Libel Suits and Advertisements. ? Ingenuity his no limits. We learn ;is a fact, that many of -the libel suits which have been brought of late in tlu-different courts, and in which the advertising doctors generally take opposing sides, have been got up expressly for the purpose of having the several cast s published in the reports, and thus of getting the doctors' advertising done gratis, in the shape of law reports in the newspapers. Newspaper reporters, not knowing the motives for bringing these libel suits, have very greenly fallen into the trap laid, and given copious reports of these bubble libel suits, always taking care that the character of the medicine involved is endorsed by all sorts of certificates and statements. It is probable enough that the famous Dr. Brandreth, of Sing Sing, who still vends his everlasting pills, became a politician, and opposed to the barnburners, in order that he might be advertised gratis in the harnbuming journals; for while these journals abuse him as a politician, they also advertise his medicine as a universal restorative. Wry funny, all this. ( If.neral Scott's Arrival.?It is now stated, upon good authority, that Ueneral Scott will not receive the attentions tirouosrd to In- n.iul to hint Kv the public authorities, on his arrival here, by the brig Petersburg. He intends to proceed from the Narrows to Elizabethtown, and reserve his uinval here for some other occasion, as he now considers himself under the displeasure of the President i>f the United States. The displeasure of Mr. I'ulk must give General Scott n great d?'al of uneasiness, indeed! Tlie frowns of the White House in 11 vt be a very great calamity! if, however, the whig convention should do a certain thing, which it is very probable it will do, the distinguished conI queror of Mexico will get over that calamity. Tiie Two Dp.omio*.?Harnum, the proprietor of one of the Tom Thumb*, has caused it to be announced that the Tom Thumb now exhibiting at New York is not the Tom Thumb in Cleveland, Ohio.

Sporting Intelligence The Racks.?The rain of yesterday morning caused a postponement of the sports at the Union Courso until to-day, when the threa mile raco between Lucy Toland and Latona will take place. Previous to which, however, a sweepstakes for three year olds will bo run for. The race between the above named Dug* is creating a groat deal of interest, and large amounts are already staked on the result. Latona is the favorite at slight odds. There will, no doubt, be a large attendance at the course, as the facilities for reaching there are provided amply for by the Long island Railroad Company. The advertisement states the hours ol' leaving. The roads will be in fine order?free from dust?and those who take the turnpike will be richly repaid by having their lungs inflated with the rich, frugraut and balmy air of the country. Trotting.?There will be a purse contended for at the ( entrevillo Course, as soon as the raciug is over at the Union, by throe well known trotters. See advertisement for particulars. The Orcat Trotting Match between Americu> and Black Hawk, for $2000.?Between four and five thousand persons attended the Union Course last Monday afternoon, to witness the trotting match between bl h. Black Hawk, and b. a. Americus: and never was i more general satisfaction given than the result of that ; affair produced. Black Hawk is a new horse on the i track?thin being his third appearance. His first con test was with Jenny Lind. in which he made the fastest I time to 250 pound wagoun ever before known. Ilis 1 next engagement was with Laily Sutton, in which he I was again successful. Both theso matches were mile | heats; but to test the question as to whether he was a j bottom horse, led to the present match with Americus. and well has he earued the reputation of being one of j the very best in the laud; for lie beat that veteran in two | straight heat*, very easily, as the report below will show. Americus, since his return from Kurope. has been in | the hands of a veterinary professor, aud it was thought I that, had the contest taken placc a month hence, his 1 chances of winuing would have been much better. Firtt Heat.?Black Hawk was the favorite at the I start at 100 to 80. although the mi\jor part of the large ainovnts wagered were posted even. U. Spicer drove I Americus and A Uonhllu the black liorsc. Americus ! won the pole. They came up finely, got the word unI der good headway, and kept together round to the I quarter pole, where Americus was ubout half a length ahead?time.42. The saiue positions were retained down the back stretch to the half mile pole, which was passed in 1:20. Round the lower turn their heads were parallel, both going steadily, and were driven with great caution I Coming up the home stretch. Americus broke up. and fell in behind Black Hawk, giving him the track, who crossed the score two lengths ahead, in 2.40. The I black, in going round the upper turn, irew away still further from Americus. he being a better climber than the other, and at the quarter and down the back stretch was throe or four lengths ahead, and evidently going with more ease than Americus. They kept thus I round to the score, making this mile in 2.53. On the last mile Americus was urged, and he gradually drew closer and closer to the black, until at the quarter polu they were side and side. It was now the universal 1mI pression of the crowd that Americus would take the lead and win the heat; but after keeping together down j to the half mile, the black horse suddenly dashed away ' from him. and ere they readied the home stretch was three lengths at least in advance, up which ho came i very vigorously, and won by about thirty yards. Time ; of last mile, 2.51? aud of the heat, 8.31. The result of this heat decided the question in the minds of all. and the backers of the black horse would not have sold out i their stakes for eighty cents on the dollar. Strond Ural.?There was another excellent start for this heat, and they went away nicely. Black Hawk leuding a length to the quarter pole?Time. 43 second'. Down the back stretch Americus closed, and they \ pasted the half mile, collared, in 1.21J-J.

To ! the next quarter Americus appeared to (lag. and the , black horse got further in advance of him. notwithstanding it was evident that Conklin had him hard In hand. Spicer rallied his charge on the back stretch, but it wa? of little avail; the black horse would not be approached \mericus broke up on the lower turn, and fell off slightly giving the other a lead of at least thirty yards at the three-quarter pole; the distance was still greater when he crossed the score. Ooing up to the drawgate the black horse broke up. dropped his head ?ulkily and appeared to care little about going any further; caused it was asserted, by his being previously timed two miles, and stopped ?t that place The drooping spirits of the friends of Americus in an instant revived; but their hopes soon evaporated A few applications of tho persuader brought the black horse to his senses; and before Americus passed him he wa? airaln at work and soon a? far ahead as previously.

The Senate convened and waa called to order by the 1 Vict* President. when the consideration of the moru- 1 iug business w:i?i resumed. payment of the public debt. Mr. Nile?, of Connecticut, offered a resolution calling upon the Secretary of the Treasury for information relative to the manner in which the public debt had been paid, in Boston. New York, and Philadelphia, and whether in other thun specie funds ; which was laid over. the new yoiik and new orleans mail steameus. The House amendment to the bill in faror of allowing the New Orleansand New York steamers to touch at Havana, for the purpose of receiving passengers, mail. fee., was taken up and concurred in. The bill stands as passed. notaries pl' ii 1.ic. On motion, the bill authorising notaries public to take acknowledgements, &c.. was taken up. considered and amended. The bill, as amended, was then put upon its final passage, and carried. relief for yl'catan. The morning business was then laid aside, and the bill in favor of extending aid to Yucatan, by the occupation of the country. Sic., was taken up. Mr. Dix, of New York, briefly addressed the Senate in favor of the bill, with amendments, be. Mr. Hannecan, of Indiana, rose and said that it was due to the Senate and to the country to say that he had received information, posltlveand conclusive to his mind, that a treaty had been concluded between the whites and Indians in Vucatan. which was liberal and just on both sides, and he therefore moved to postpone the bill until further information could be received. On this motion, a debate sprung up between Mr. Underwood, of Kentucky. Mr. Nilej. and Hanneuan,

which was quite exciting and personal between the two latter gentlemen, after which. mutual explanations were made, and harmony again restored. After some remarks made by Mr. Foote. of Mississippi, chiefly directed against Mr. Calhoun, the Senate adjourned over till Thursday, to-morrow. House of Representative*. The House convened at 8 o'clock, when it was called to order by the Speaker. The journal was read and approved. reports from committers. The Speaker then announced the first thing in order to be reports from committees, when several private bills were reported, which wore read twice and referred to the committee of the whole. extra examiners for the patent office. Mr. J. W. Karrally. of Pa., from tho Committee of Conference, reported a bill for creating additional examiners in the Patent Office, consisting of two at twenty-five hundred dollars salary each, and two at fifteen hundred dollars salary each, which was adopted. the naval tension bill. On motion of Mr. Vinton, of Ohio, the Houso resolved itself into a Committee of the Whole on the State of the Union.

When he concluded it was laid aside, and the Post Offlco bill was taken up. in discussing which a debate ensued respecting the Wiluiot proviso, in which Mr. Woodward of South Carolina. Mr. Bayiy. of Virginia, and Mr. Murphy, of New York, participated. Each spoke with ability, and evinced considerable eloquence and talent. Mr. Cocke, of Tennessee obtained the floor, when, on motion, thn committee rose and reported progress. Mr. IlorsTot. of Delaware, offered a resolution that the House adjourn over from Monday morning next to the Thursday following, which was adopted. On motion, the House then adjourned over till tomorrow. Thursday. Sailing or the Britannia* Boston. May 17. 1848.

Very Interesting from the Pnelflc Terrible MuflvmiK ni liipniiese, dlv. Air. [Krnm the New Bedford Mercury, May lfl.l By the whaling shin James Maury, Capt. whelden, from Honolulu L)cc. 2.>, we have received a co|iy of the Pitli/tusitin of the latest date, from which we gather the following items:? The whale ship Frances Henrietta, Capt. Poole, of this [>ort, fell in with, at sea, in May, Int 12 N*. Ion 150 K.,u Japanese junk , of 200 tons, dismasted, rudder gone, and otherwise injured in atynhoon seven months previous. The original number of the crew was seventeen; but when Capt. Poole discovered them, th >y were reduced to four, and in a famishing condition. The crew had drawn lots for some time past as to who should be killed and eaten ; the one upon whom the lot fell, if able, lighting lor his life, and in some instances succeeded in killing one of the others, in which case the murdered man was first eaten. The survivors were shockingly scarred with dirk und knife wounds, as if their lives h id been often attempted by their companions. Capt. Poole kept them on board his ship for thwrty days, and then put them onboard some tishmu boats, close in shore, nbout Int. Ifl N. They were exceedingly grateful, and manifested iiiucii emotion on leaving the whaler. The junk had not much of a cargo on board, or was in such a disgusting condition that the crew of the Frances Henrietta aid not like to examine her minutely. They obtained, however, a number of interesting cunosities, such as books, idols, sword*, pictures, fans, boxes, china ware boxes of tools, tvc. iVc. The Bremen ship Otaneite, ('apt. WietinK, had previously picked un another Japanese junK, relieved the distressed crew, and taken to Honolulu several thousand dollars worth of her cargo, which was Hold at auction at that place, Dec. Htli, and bron111 good price*, the sales realising about $1300, exclusive ol 12,00(1 lbs. of beeswax, which was reserved to be sent to Kurope. The I'oli/ttmiaii savs: "The junk s carfco appeared to conslit of 'notions,' and the samples of Japanese Merchandise were sufficient to show that they have many articles that rould tie profitably exported, and that their own skill and com .nmeiiiMij urri'iwu ny a inreijfn iranr Nome copper, brain hoop.

Jackson, of the whale amp Inez, of this port, under more favorable auspices than hud before been allowed;?(on which occasion. it may be recollected, from an account recently copied in our colums, the Japanese appeared friendly, ofiered to supply him with wood and water, but wuuld permit no further intercourse, and desired his departure,)?and thinks the signs ot the times are threatening to the exclusive policy which lias been so rigidly maintained hitherto by the Japanese government. i ue i-oiynetian says,-iMiglana, h ranee and the United Statu* ardently desire to effect a breach in this policy. Thoy perhaps have too high a sense of national honor to do this by mere forco of arms, but circumstances now appear to be preparing the way for their intervention in some chape. We believe the whaling fleet are destined to do something in this cause. A new fishery has been opened in the Japan seas. Hundreds of enterprising whalers will, the ensuing season, cruize in all directions about their shores and in their bay*, in search of their game. The Japanese have no naval force t? enforce respect to their inter-chaunel rights. The dtctrine of a closed sea, however much they may desire to see preserved, they are powerless to enforce. The whalers will be tempted to land for wood, water, provisions, fee. Stress of weather, or some other contingency, may force some ashore. In this way some intercourse must be established. Humanity or necessity will demand it. Will the Japanese refuse .' If they continue their policy of gratuitous hospitality, their patience may become exhausted at the increasing demands upon it. or their cupidity may be awakened to receive something in return, if they abuse those who may thus be placed within their power, they afford the pretext which is so eagerly desired, for interference 011 the part of some foreign power.?* If they commeuce trading in any way, the door for innovation is opened, and it will never be closed.? Junks in distress will undoubtedly be met with by whalers. In case of such an event, we hope the master will have public spirit enough to carry the crew with as much of the merchandise as he can save to its port of destination. Such honorable conduct will favorably impress the Japanese, and wo feel sure the master who thus acts will not sulTer in his interests by so doing. The Japanese merchants will appreciate the deed, and through them the government may become more lenient. If they should decline to recoive the rescued property, or to pay a fair salvage, the master will theu have a perfect right to it. But such a course cannot do otherwise than create a kindly feeling towards whaleships, and they may have occasion, cruising as they will In a comparatively unknown and dangerous tea, to require similar generosity at the hands of the Japanese. At all events, we bope masters of whale ships will lose n? opportunity of favorably impressing the Japaneso in regard to the respective nations they represent, and that they will make note of all information thoy can procure. Captain Jackson's example in both these respects is deserving of commendation. We have not a doubt that if he should by chance drop into the same bay again, his old friends* would secretly be rejoiced to see him. From bis journal, they evidently were pleased to have him there, but were afraid of their own government, and consequently made known to mm wun eourieny meir wisiies mat ne luignt leave. ' It would bo good policy for the United States, fcnglund and France, to each keep a national vensol cruising in Japanese waters while the whaling fleet ia there. Their presence might be productive of good to both parties, and they would familiarize the Japanese with the light of their Hags." A public celebration and temperance feast was held by the pupils of the native schools, at Honolulu, on the 12th of November, in the vicinity of the town, in which the King and Chiefs participated. About MX) scholars, nearly 500 parents, and a large number of spectators were present. Upwards of 5U0 tables were arranged for the repast, at which some 153 pigs, 4?) fowls, 215 geese, together with ducks, turkeys, fish, vegetables, fruit, Arc., Arc., in like quantities, were aemolisned.? These celebrations are held under the auspices of the missionaries, and are becoming deservedly popular. The lieorge Washington, and the Maria Helena, for the United States, were to sail from Honolulu in December. The Maria Helena, merchant ship, would touch at Tahiti and Valparaiso, thence to this port. The volcano at Kilanea had exhibited increased action about the 1st of December, and on the 2d there was a slight earthquake. A large invoice of standard books from the establishment of the Harpers, in New York, was received at Honolulu Oct. 20th. and in less than six weeks about $1000 worth had been retailed among the towns-people and foreign residents. The foreign residents of East Maui, had ordered an entire set of Harpers' Family Library, consisting of Police Intelligence.

The case will be further heard before the magistrate at 4 o'clock tbl-< afternoon. Model Artittt Again.?\ complaint was made yesterday before Justice Timpson, one of our gentlemanly magistrates at the Tombs, by a genteel, motherly looking woman, by the name of Louisa Johnson, rending at No. 30 Guuveroeer street., who made an affidavit before the magistrate, setting forth that her three daughters by the names of Isabella Gordon. Louisa Gordon, and Elizabeth Gordon, all under 18 years of age. were nightly exhibiting themselves as model artists, in tights, at Palmo's, in Chambers street, thereby disgracing themselves?at the same time disobeying the orders of their mother. A warrant was issued for their arreflt. Imulling Females.?It has beon a general complaint of late, that respectable females were uiutblo to promenade on the Battery, without being followed, backwards and forwards, and insulted by a set of vagabonds and scamps, disguised under the appearance of gentleman. On Monday afternoon last, as two respectable ladies, a Miss U and her friend, who reside in Greonwich street, near the Battery, were walking on the Battery, between the hours of 5 and 6, they were followed by one of these Battery loafers, backwards and forwards, and at last grossly Insulted, but as the ladies were unprotected at the time by any gentleman, and the police any whero but near at hand, the contemptible fellow escaped. However. as one of these ladies was walking up Broadway the same evening with her husband, she saw the sauic fellow, who then acted in a very rude manner towards her. She then informed her husband that he was the individual who committed the insult on the Battery. Enraged and indignant at the scamp, the husband was about inflicting a bodily chastisement on the spot, but seeing a policeman near at hand, he desired him to take him into cuctody ; but as no violent assault had been committed, the officer said it was out of his power so to do. The name of tills individual was obtained. but which we withhold, trusting that this notice will be a salutary lesson, and prcveut any further disgraceful conduct on the part of a man who, at least, bears the outward appearance of gentleman. The ladies appeared before Justice Timpson yesterday, and a warrant was issued for the arrest of this ungentlemanly fellow, which resulted in his being held to ball for his future good conduct. Wo hope und trust that Captain Wiley, of the First Ward pol e !. will give positive orders t? his policemen, stationed on the Battery, to watch all such geutcel loafers who prowl about the Battery, taking every opportunity to insult respectable fnr it klleli i. ..... no decent fumalc can with propriety venture to promonade in any of the public walks Charge / Grand Larceny.?Officer* Brown ?f the chief * office, and MuUory. of the 11th wnrd. arrested yesterday a man by the name of Thomas Terw, on a charge of (dealing a gold watch and chain, valued at | $80. belonging to a Mr Worrell.

Mr. Blrpckkr wished to know how the deficiency ha* ariaen after the large grants that had been already made for thi* icliool. Mr. Deinv. one of the committee. Haid, that the officers, when they made their estimate for the former grants, they made it on an average attendance of 800 scholars, but it turned out that there was an average attendance of upwards of 1000 scholars. Mr. Fellows said, that their requirements to the first of May. did not amount to more than $300 or $400. and he did not aee why the Board should be called upon to advance the sum of $1,000. for expenses which will not be incurred until the 1st of August next; it will be placing them in better situation than any other of the ward schools ; and It would also be a precedent for other schools to come to this Board, and ask for advances. Mr. Denny contended that the appropriations made on the first of May were to be applied to the expenses of the current quarter. Mr. CRArro said the practice was to apply the sums appropriated on the flrkt of May to the expenses of the previous quarter. He contended that if this application was granted, there would be at least fifteen other applications for grants to cover expenses not yet incurred. He thought it would be unwise of the Board to entrust commissioners with sums of money not yet needed, because the control of it would be an Inducement to the ward officers to lavish It.
