A tire at Speech. The conte6t for the Presidency waxes warm. General Taylor himself lias got excited, and mounted the stump. Let Daniel Webster stop his fifihintr and fowling for one dav in Marshtield. and rood it carefully over. Let Ogden Hoffman abandon his splendid figures of speech, and take new lessons in oratory. Let Leslie Coombs, the greatest speaker in buffoonery we ever had m three diggings, take the next cab, and drive to the Aetor House as last as possible. Our paper o^ yesterday was the only newspai>er 111 the city which contained the admirable and characteristic speech delivered by (General Taylor, at a barbecue given to him by his politiQttl.'fnends at Pass Christian, on the 16th inst. WP hope our readers have read it, for it is worthy ol"a careful perusal, being an incident of the prese^f*canvass, which will "have considerable effect on*the result of the election, particularly in the West and South West. This address of General Taylor is udeed characteristic of the man. The language is- simple* plain, and easily comprehended. The sentiment which pervades it is modest and ingenious, >et firm and determined. After referring to the occasion, which, he said, put him in mind of the scenes which lie participated *n in enrly life?to similar scenes at which the men of ron hearts and iron nerves presided, {who as. sisted Washington in achieving the independence of his country?ho paid a handsome tribute to the gallant volunteers who fought under him in his glorious battles in Mexico, to whom he, in his modesty, said the country was indebted for the victories. The rebuke which he administered to ikcretaiy Marcy, General bcott. and Ch-valier WyKofl, is dignified and pointed, lie referred to the order that Btrifi>ed him of his best troops, and commanded him to act on the defensive, which, with the halter round his neck, lie determined not i '.i t * 4*r ~~od reasons, to give to comply with; lor .. . . tie with his smaii; force of 430 regular troops and ! 4,0uo volunteers, against twenty thousand of the j enemy. That order, h-said, was given at hazard, i and in ignorance of his situation and that of tJ-.e enemy and the cov^jy in whicl, he was in; and j ^ eiore he took the responsibility of not Com- j plying with it. The result proved the soundness of his reasoning, and the wisdom of vni8 disc-re- j tion There is a remarkable similarity in style, die- j tion and sentiment, between this address and the admirable, piquant, and forcible despatches which j emanated from him from time to time during the | jei-ent war with Mc.vico. No one wh<> has pe- . rused botli, can lor a moment doubt that lie who delivered the one wrote the others. They are exactly parallel. The same common sense runs through all?there is the same modesty and simplicity in all, the same excellent choice of words, and the same regularity, order, arid aptitude in them to express exactly what the speaker and writer intended to convey, and be understood by those for whom they w ere designed. This Mump speech ol <len. Taylor is decidedly the best that has been delivered in the pre- nt canvass: and we think it very probable that it will *' tent influence in his favor throughexercise a rominu election. out th< count, y in tru .

Never before v* hp party ?een in such a divided, broken ami fragmentul stale as the whig party at the present day?there if a complete breaking up anions them. Like school-boys, at "bre&king-up,' they seem to be ru.~huifr out of school, scattering in al! directions, tossing up their caps, and venting their r?ge and vexation against Heir master*Now, all thi# is precisely as we predicted. The old poLitica! land-marks are breaking dewn: the old /.i^ fence hae become rotten?it is tumbling down on all sides, and in it** fall precipitates to the ground those who were sitting or riding upon it. We are ^rlad of it. Under the name and influence of General Taylor, aided by the strong sense and strong pen of an in* dependent press and an independent people, we see a new party ansine, which will swallow up al' the coteries and cliques of selfish individual politicians?and that party is the independent party of the American i>eonl?? it is both lamentable and astonishing to contemplate how the people of this country have been led, ruled, and governed by a tew, a very few men, who, collecting the masses together in meetings, and conventions, (in winch they had every thing ready cutand-dried for themselves,) afterwards turned, twisted, used and abused the American people just as they pleased. The reign and misrule of wirepullers. of selfish, artful, intriguing individuals, arc coming to an end, and we are glad of it. A vicious system of trading journalism lirstled to and established these shacKles, and u more noble, bold, and independent system has led to its destruction. The nomination of General Taylor?together with the firmness, boldness, honesty, and 6implieitjr of that truly American hero?will give a death blow to the cli?(ue-government which lias hitherto made and un-made, built up or pulled down, the government, which ought to have been that of the whole American j>eople. What astonishing efforts the whig leaders and wire-pullers have made, to get hold of General Taylor, to tie him down and ne him ui), and bind and fetter him, as the Lilliputians did Gulliver, with all sorts of little packthreads. that they migtit have him stretched on the ground, at their mercy and disposal; or lead him about, like a tamed elephant, to carry them #n his shoulders, and lift them up to an elevation which uocs not belong to them ! General Taylor is des? rving both ofgreat praise and admiration, that he haB remained unmoved by their threats not to take him up, or by their promises and flatteries that they would take him up ; and instead of selling himself to them, and binding himself hand and foot 111 their toil?, lias chosen the better and nobler course of devoting himself untrammelled to the service of his country, and of the American people. The malice, hatred, and vituperation of the caucus-men of the whig party will not hurt < General Taylor; the i>eopIe will desert these men, these would-be leaders and guides, and leaving them to fume and fret at their loss of place, influence, and power, will go for General Taylor. This is the breaking up of the whig party, of which we S|>oke; it is the act of the neople cutting loose from the men who have led tnem in rank and file for years y>a6t, and not sullered them to take an independent step of their own out of the ranks?cutting loose from these dnim-majors, and acting for themselves and their true interests, with such a leader as General Taylor, and such lights as an unbought, unsold, and unhired popular press. As we developed in a former article, the betrayers of the jieople have been the men who have conducted a press notoriously sold to, and lured by, some clique or party. After many years of a hard fought battle, these hirelings have been routed and defeated, horse, foot and dragoons. The New York Herald began the tight, it has manfully carried it on. and will never flinch from the battle field. The people have seen the spectacle of the contest, ana nave joined rn masse against tuem, unci the result has been the nomination of General Taylor, and the emancipation of the American people from a vile system of secret leadership, pettyfoggintr, caucussintr, impudent wire-pulling, and l>ase individual selii-hness. M?-?llcliit'fi nntl Mctltcnl Mm. Tbemedical.profession of this country constitutes a curious feature in our every-day-life. It ia divided into two distinct cl?Me?. namely, the regular and the irregular practice. Connected with the former, there are aeveral hundred medical school* and colleges scattered over the I nited States, and some of the gra duates of those colleges have already attained the highest degree of eminence We could mention many in New York, Thiiadelphia. Baltimore, New Orlcanr and other large cities, who are highly distinguished fof their professional excellence. But the success achieved by many connected with the irregular practice of medicine, is both carious and c xtraordinary. Some years ago tha celebrated Doctor Brandreth commenced, in this city, the sal* of pills, the secret of which had been discovered by, or confided to him. He advertised liberally, and sent boxes of bis pills gratis to various editor*. Titay were found to be good ; hie name was brought before the public through the papers, and he bas now amassed a large fortune, and Htm in a palace at Sing Sing, a abort distance from the State priion. The doctor diverts his leisure with the exciting game of politics. ' strong old hunker, and will, v , . ,, . * ' ' ? aoubt, display the ^nme irnrgy in striving to elest Cans nnd Butler, a- he ias displayed for seve?^', years back in dosing the public. As eUCcegiiful in public favor. at least as the Jirnudrcth pills, are Doctor Moffatt's Life Bitters. This gentleman owns a magnificent house on Lroadw?J? andbis it -aid. bring him in fifty or sixty thousand dollar? rt year. The popularity of Towfisend's sarsaparilla, affords another intance of the success of genius and tact in advertising. We have no doubt this medicine deserves all the praise bestowed upon it. as it purifies the blood, clears the brain, brighten? the ideas, and anis* liorates the system, and lightens the purse generally' We have not learned what income it yields, but Doctor Townsend may be considered as amonj the medics' millionaires. A rival to those above natm-d has lately started up in the person of Doctor Kellinger, with genius equal to any of the others, and with a shrewdness, tact, anil energy, and. above all. with matt rials to work it. which will place him in the foremost rank of his professionlie is the discoverer or inventor of a certain liniment' the virtues of which are beyond dispute, and are vouched for by many of the highest respectability. We b.we ourselves derived the greatest benefit from its use and can speak u nderstandinglv of its excellence. It is used internally and externally, is equally efficacious both ways, and is neculiarly adapted ;to this climate. It ha* of late rapidly made its way in public favor, and its success if beyond question. It. fale has already been highly profitable, and as it is equally serviceable to horses, as to human being*, Doctor Kellinger has a prospect o! amassing an immense fortune Th* Doctor owns a very handsom" hotel at Ynnkers, in this State.

I am fully aware that in London, and many other cities in i Kur:pe, there are many rights conveyed by said , presentation ; but, a* Frederic Jerome is already a citizen or tne United States, I am at a loss to know what further right* he will possess?having made the enquiry of *?reral, who are equally ignorant on the subject. By replying, you will oblige MANY. Htmarks.?"We understand the freedom of the city, a:- granting to a stranger all the privileges of a citizen, so far an the city is concerned. Under the Montgomery charter, the Common Council have a right to confer the privilege of voting for city oflicers, and holding a legal possession of proi>erly, though not a citizen of the United States. In the case referred to, it is said that Frederic Jerome, is not a naturalized citizen, and without such action on the part oi the Common Counci' would not, of course, be entitled to such rights. When Mr. Van Buren was recalled, as Minister to the Court of St. James, upon his arrival he was tendered the freedom of the city, without a residence. We should suppose in the case of Mr. Van Duren, it could be done, without violating the constitution 1 of the State, but, in the case of Fredcnc Jerome, there is doubt whether the Common Council have the right to step beyond the constitution of the United States, and the State of New YorK, to gran1 to any one the rights of a citizen. Jerome is an Englishman, and, if not naturalized, cannot receive the honors proposed to be conferred upon him, except in violation of all the laws and estab" lished customs of the land. Theatrical and Magical. rauk Theatre.?This beautiful theatre wm again crowded last evening to see the new grand ballet of ' Esmeralda," which will now be withdrawn to give place to other novelties. Nothing eijual to it has been presented In this city for a long time. The truthful, expressive, and in. lellible manner in which the story of the piece is told in the pantomime gestures?the brilliant and gorgeous spectacles introduced in every scene?the number and excellence of the corpi de ballet, and the artistioal beauty of the dancing of the celebrated Monplaisir rrotipr have combined to secure for this splendid ballet a most brilliant and successful run. Now that it is about to be withdrawn, it won't b? doing injustice to omit mentioning the admirable manner in which this beautiful ballet has been got up. The oostnmes, the scenery, the properties, in short, every act and scene, reflected great credit on the gentlemen to whom this department was confided. Notwithstanding all their attractions, however, it is a source of much satisfaction to us tbat the legitimate drama is again to resume her sway at the Park, when, we doubt not, the cuicrjjilpiug prupneiur wiu pt-curt* eyen more crowuea ? bouses than have thronged this theatre since the production of "Ksmeralda.'' These are the days to try ! manager's souls, and we are glad to see that Mr. ( llamblin has not been found wanting. To-morrow . evening, Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert will make their first ap- . pearance, in a popular comedy, since their return from . Europe, and ncTelties of no ordinary kind aie in preparation. Bowr.uv Theatre.?The present engagement of Mr Hamblin, at this bouse, has been thus far a most bril- < liant one. Night after night the house has been crowd- 1 ed in every part, and the various tragic parts in which J he has appeared have given the greatest satisfaction to 1 the highly intelligent and respectable audience* who 1 have witnessed them. We have never Seen Mr. H. act ' with more spirit and energy than he has during the f present week, and his Hamlet, Virginius, Macbeth, and , other parts, have all been performed in his best vein. Last evening, he appeared as Othello, and the noble Moor found a fitting representative in him. Tne scenic <{ : and stage department, which is under the management ; of Mr. Stephens, was admirable; and we have never : before teen the senate scene, in the first act, so splen- * didly got up as it.waa last night. The other scenery, too, was most appropriate and splendid; so that.-what 1 with lie fine acting of Mr. Hamblin, as Othello, the excellent Desdemona, of Mrs. Jordan, (who, by the by, took the place of Miss Taylor, who was sick.) and the . complete manner in which the remainder of the characters w?re filled, the tragedy was played as admirably as we have ever seen it done in New V ork. The grand 1 new ballet of the ' Abduction of Nina" concludcd the evening s performances. Slgnera Ciocca, Signor Neri, and Mr. Smith, were much applauded, and taeir beau- , tiful danoing was truly worthy of it. To-night, Mr. llamblin will appear as Hamlet, and the new ballet will be again played, so that t tie bill Is one of the best of t(ie seacon. fiitoaouav Tim athk.?Mr. Collins appeared, last evening in two pieces?as O'Kafferty, in " Born to toKJood Luck.'" and as Moriran Rattler, in " How to i Tay the Kent." The former is one of his best parts, it | :in<> the delight of the audience "as testified in loud ? and repeated plaudit*. The exquisite humor he e throws into his acting Wat fully appreciated by a very I full house; and his .songs were enthusiastically en- < t cored. His Morgan Rattier was equally wwi received. , i Vachc. as Count Malfl, in " Eorn to Good Luck." | was excellent; and Andrews, as Old Miller, in " How ? to i'Hy th?

Indeed, the plays have been c hitherto, during his engagement, very indifferently ; cast There is abundance of strength in the company. ] for it coutains I)yott and Miss IVallack, aud others of r j much merit; and the overflowing houses that Mr. c 1 Celling draua would certainly justify the employment ' t of the M-ry best talent to sustain him. ^'nfl fculcrdi- ! t , nates should nt least be ' i a their parts, as this i I is even more tf.,eutlal )q comedy than in tragedy, n . trfffcet depends more on the exertions of the j i , principal actor, than on the co-operation of his iup- | t porters. This evening Mr, Collins appears kg l'ierce 1 Ollura in the " Irish Attorney," and as Taddy Mur- 1 pby in the " H*ppv Man,"'?two of his be3t parti. lie * sings soTtral favorite songs. j c National Tiikattif..?The entertainments at thi? j c house, last evening, went oil with great ulat. The j ' luelo-drama of ".loan of Arc," with all Its splendid see* 1 n?ry. beautiful decorations. and the magniticeut j i dresses of the performers, was much applauded. Miss ] , ' Mcstayer, as tLe warlike Joan, was excellent; and , f lliirke. as the valiant Yali&nto. the piak of the valley, , ' ' was as comical as ever. The-'Mysteries and Miserias" ' was the next piece, and all the rich and racy scenes 1 ' with which this piece abounds gave as much sntisfac- . ( ' tion asevir. The scene of the Dutch ball is capital; !

Chnnfrau must be making 1 money fa*t. and we are sure that nobody can grudge it to him, as he certainly, both a? actor and manager, ha*. sinee he ha? controlled the National, contributed j a* much t;> the amusement ol the public as any mana- ' j ger in the I nion.

It will be Men, by referring to onr advertising ioIuiddx. that Mr. Wilson, the celebrated Scottish vosaliat, ia about to pay a visit to the I nked Stater, and ntcnds giving a aeries of his entertainments here, on .he songa of Scotland. The fame which thia popular ninatrel has achieved in Kurope, is at earnest of the luocets whieh must attend him in this country. Hia aay and graceful deportment, his rich and well-toned roloe, and hia apprehension of the sentiments eaeh 3f hia compositions Is intended to convey, are too well known in the muaical world to require reiteration. Thia gentleman by, his diacriminating taste, and Indeftlgable industry, haa succeeded la. presenting to the world, in a tongabie and popular form, some most exquisitely touching apeoimens of melodious, humorous, patriotic, and chivairoua muaic, and lyrical Soottlsh, poetry, which otherwiae might have been lost to the Mr 1IMI./iv1 ?

I n addition to all these qualities, nature has been very kind to him?bis voice has a charming quality, a gentleness and suavity that seem perfectly attuned to the interpretation of his " native wood notes wild." We ventuie to say that Mr. Wilson will meet with a cordial reception, and obtain a large share of public patronage in this country.

Their new songs ire already great favorites, and are quite agreeable noreltlrs, as, to tell the truth, some of the old ones, hough very pretty, were becoming rather stale. Jainpbell's Minstrels have long passed the half-way louse on the high road to fortune, and hare established for themselves a name and reputation as singers vbioh any band might envy. MrssRs.

One of tha lartlea interested lt> this loan has gone to Washington, nil upon bis return the amount will probably be [rawn from the independent treasury. A day ot wo will deetdc all doubts. Speculators in government stocks, treasury noles_ nd other securities in Wall street, have, for sometime ast, been growling and grumbling about the operation f the independent treasury act, and its restriction* pon the money market For sometime past the disursements of the government have been limited, eon* ared with its receipts, and the accumulation of specie n the vaults of the sub-treasury has been Urge. Ob he 1st of July last, the total amount to the credit of he government, in the different depositories, was bat 1,638,112, of whioh but $169,037 was in the hands of be assistant treasurer in this city. Since that time, by he payments on aooonnt of the new loan, and tha eceipts from duties on imports, the deposits in thia >v luuranu anrif uiree millions or dOUtfU nd in the country to between fonr and five million* of ollars, the whole of which con ltt? of gold and silver, 'his accumulation, particularly at this point, has prouced a great scarcity of money. It is not merely tha lthdrawal of three or four millions of dill at* in spate from the banks or from circulation, that causes this erangement in the market; but it is the effect of this lthdrawal upon the movements of the banks, and con* squently upon individual credit. It contracts the ourency three or four timos the extent of the specie drain nd produces distrust in commercial circles, and cau~ on among the moneyed iostitutions of all oar large ities. Such has, undoubtedly, been the effect of the peration of the Independent Treasury act during lie past sixty days, and will continue until something i done to arrest the accumulation and reduce the eposits. It cannot be denied that the operation of his financial system, for sometime past, has been anyiiing but that intended by its projectors ; and the ame ignorance has been exhibited by those intrusted rith its management as attended former financial jrstems of the government, and which led to thosv xploMons which heretofore proved so disastrous to rery interest of the country. It was never intended by the framers of this financial leasure that there should be no surplus on hand, bat there should be no accumulation of specie in be hands of the assistant treasurers?and to prevent tie possibility of any such thing occurring, u. tariff, or bat was called a revenue tariff, was simultaneously dopted. It was intended that the reduced tariff would nable the government to carry Into operation more ucceesfully and with less Injury to the financial and ommercial classes, the Independent Treasury act,and hat when that system of finance was once established be new tariff would equalize the receipts and expenitures of the Treasury Department, to that It would ot, by any possibility, produce those expansion* and ontractions in the money market, which had hithero been so frequent and so ruinous. The tariff wm, berefore, called a " revenue tariff." and was supposed o be ho graduated in itr provisions, as to give an inomc just sufficient to meet the ordinary expenditures f the government. It has now been In operation nearly wo yean, and the result has oertalnly been different rom that anticipated by the public generally. Foruitous circumstances have increased oar foreign rade, and the importations have been larger than sual: the revenue from customs waa, therefore, th? rst year, exceedingly large, exceeding by several Billons of dollars the expenditures of the government for rdinary purposes. 1 hus far, this year, the reenue from custo'tns has been large, even with a. toderate importation, showing that the average er cent duty, required by the prosent aot is above revenue point. This is one cause of the aecu luiation ot a surplus; and as the Independent 'r?aeury act and the tariff are- no nor* nor leii , ban part of the same system, they (honld be so regvited as to work more uniformly together. If any Iteration or modification is required, it is ia the ommercial system of the government rather than in g financial system; and there ii no doubt from th? xperience of the past twenty months, that important langes might be made in the tariff, by which the pub5 finances would be more equally regulated. Th? trphtt rrreiiue produced within th-? past two yean ? a revenue tariff, cannot bo much leu than tenmil3ns of dollars; and although the extraordinary ex nditure* of the government during that time made ich an oxcess desirable, new that they haTe been reiced nearly to any ordinary standard, any surplus is ilculated to injure the operations of trade, and proice contractions from time to time in the ourrency. r withdrawing from the channels of commerce the ecious metal?, and looking them up in th? vaults of le public treasury. This is the only government in the world which acjmulates a surplus. The expenditures of almost all hers exceed the receipts, and their debts are annualinohasing. It is Inconsistent with the dutlss jject of any and every government to interfere ith the tinancial affairs of its subjects, by ncually draining them of a portion of Cfteir eaus aDd resources. Whatever ii driwa from lem to carry on the gorernment, sh>tiid be irnt d?;.ain at the earliest moment. *nd every pub: measure should be framed to Vile accomplishment that cr.J. Korthls purpose. ?fce financial anil comerclal rystcms of this country should harmonize^ id all 'hould be mad? subsidiary to that policy, nee the adoption o? the imieptndant Treasury Act' vcral large loans have been made; and while the exienn war continued, the disbursement* largely ex eded the receipt!. The enforcement of the speeio ovi.'ions of that act had no irjurious influence upon nancial or commercial affairs, and the opponents of ie system believed that they had magnified its supisrd evils. It is true that those entrusted with Ite tablishment had taken the responsibility, from time time, of deviating from its true and legal construeon, and have been governed more by circumstance* lan by the law; but up to the closing 01'the last loan. > one connected with commerce experienced any innvenlence from the existence of such a system, and id it been properly managed since, we should have id no complaints relative to it* injurious effect, and all >uld have progressed so amoothly and satisfactorily at we should hardlyjhare known that any change had en made in the financial system of the government, ie government owes enough to enable the Secretary the Treasury to keep down the deposits, without sorting to Illegal measures; and It Is only by a proper ministration of the business of that department, that e different measures of the government can be mado plicable to the best Interests of the country.
