Our foreign correspondence to the latest moment, is pretty fully given in this day's Htrald. It embraces letters from France,winch, at the presen: moment, are of the greatest interest to the republi. can world. These letters will increase the desire to read the news to come by the Cambria, now due at thi port. The preparations in France for the first Pre mdential election in that republic, excites the deep est interest, and the result of the events in Austria are of no less importance. The details of the desperate struggle between the inhabitants of Vienna and the imperial troops surrounding that city, will be read with avidity by all classes. The Cambria is in her fourteenth day, and may be expected to arrive at any moment. The Whig Leader*, and Removals from Offlcct There are some men in the whig party?of high position, too?whose councils will as assuredly break down the administration of General Taylor as tha1 he has been elected to the Presidency, if he allow himself to be influenced by them. Of tins class is the Hon. Francis Granger, who helped to break down General Harrison, and who has had the goodness to decline in advance?and probably for a good reason?to be a member of the new cabinet. General Taylor's views in regard to removals from office are well known?in fact, he voluntarily pledged himself many months previous to the election, that if he should be elevated to the chiej magistracy, he would not sanction proscription for pinion's sake, and would not remove from office fhore who disagreed with him on political subjects, provided they were competent men, and attended Btrictly to the performance of their duties. The unsolicited avowal of this principle had its influence in securing his election. The American people have, ever since the administration of General Jackson, been disgusted with the recklessness with which the patronage of the country has been bestowed on politicians, and the shameful and indiscriminate proscription there lias been for opinion's sake. It was a sad thing for the interests of the country, that Governor Marcy's detestable principle?" To the victors belong the upous ?was ever aaopiea. n convened our eiec Uudi?national. State and municipal? into a scram" ble, by a few reckless politicians aud bullies, an4 has undoubtedly entailed a great deal of inimo* xality on the country. It encouraged men to forsake their places of business, and throw aside the haoitsof industry by wljich they supported themselves tad families in comfort and contentment, lor a paltry office, which, in nine cases out of ten* unfitted the occupants lor being useful members of society ever after. We know of instances of this kind, and could point out more than a dozen. ? The avowal made by General Taylor that he Would not follow this principle?that he would not proscribe for opinion's sake?that he would be the President of the country, and not ot a party, was ' hailed with pleasure by all right thinking men in the country ; and we are certain that the enun~ ciation of this determination attracted to his stau* dard and support many who would otherwise have opposed him. It gave them an assurance that a inan who would make such a declaration, in ad- 1 run re, evan, of hit nomination by the Philadelphia C onvention, wait a man ol independence; and bung; to in one respect, he would in all. la the (ace of this solemn declaration, and in alluding to removals from office under the coming administration, Mr. Granger said, at the recruit * hig iaatival, what he supposed a whig who is not an ultra whig (meaning General Taylor) would dfi, would be, in the first place, to remedy some ?f the evils that have been reaped by turning whigs out of office under parvious administrations, and (hen t? carry out the leflersonian principle of rotation in office; or, lu other word*, to make u olean sweep?oust every office-holder who is not a whig, and put a whig in his place. This is the lirst attempt that has been made by one of the so ra'led leaders of the whig party, to chalk out a policy for t>eneral Taylor to pursue when he gets i'XstMtonof the reiaa of government, to be (ol lowed, no doubt, by o<hera from other so called whig leaders. If we have oot very much mistaken General Taylor's calibre, these whig leaders, as they style themselves, will be taught that the hero of B*iena Vista will not submit, as General Harrison did, to be led by the nose by any of them, or to be a mere I ul>l>et in their hands, or to have " a power behind the throne greater thau the throne itseli " He will, we h ve no doubt, be the President of the coun' tiy?the independent President of the countryelected by the independent people of the country. I' ia clear to us that, it they attempt auch a game, the* will wake up tl e wrong passenger; and, in fulfilling his pledge, and abrogating, during his adminia tration, the vie principle that "to the victon belong the tpoila," General Taylor will be ai^j ported by the best men of the land. Wii.l General Taylor be a Mikoritt Paret pent !?The friendB ol General Taylor, and th? public generally, are very anxious to ascertain whether or not that distinguished man has been elected by a majority of the popular vote, over all oiher candidates, or whether he will be what 11 usually termed a minority President. In the Preaiden'.iul contest of 1844, the number of votei thrown lor Mr. Polk, the present incumbent of tht White House, was thirty thousand less than a majority ol the whole popular vote. We cannot, at present, satisfy the inquiries on this subject; but we can give the returns from seventeen States, which may be depended upon as being nearly, if not quite, correct. They are as follows :? THE POPULAR VOTE IN SEVENTEEN STATES. It'Aiu 4* Drm't. F. Soil. L.'t. Tn\lor. Cait. V. Hv'n. d*c. Maine 85,279 40,138 12,124 ? N.

Administration or Criminal Justice.?Recorder Scott.?During the recent election, several o the newspapers, which claim a large stock of piety and purity, pionounced numerous eulogiums upon 'lie administration of criminal justice, under the recordership of Judge Scott; while they were at 'he same time terrible in their denunciations against the character and capacity of Mr. Tallmadge, the Recorder elect. We did not join in any of these excessive eulogies, or bitter denunciations although some strange applications were made to us by a member of the bar friendly to Scott. We desired to do justice to all parties, and trusted to 'lme to bring the truth out of darkness, and purity out of the deep night. We have heard, however, of a recent case,springing up in the administration of criminal justice winch demands a s.'rious investigation,and which, we believe, will be listened to by the great bulk of the public According to the laws of tins State, there are certain cases of tliminal information, m which a Recorder has no legal right to grant bail to the parties implicated, before an open examination has taken place in presence of the committing justice; and any Judge or Recorder violating such legal provision, renders himself amenable to impeachment before a higher tribunal. Now, among our laily reports, in the ordinary administration of :riminal affairs in this city, we have discovered a irery peculiar case, which appears to us to come ander the description we l;ave given, nnd to pre tent such features as to demand a calm and accurate investigation, in order to discover whether the statute han not been violated, and some one has not rendered himself amenable to the law or impediment. The recent statement made by Mr. McKeon berore the Recorder, and concurred in by the latter, nesents a very 6erious case against Mr. Acker, he keeper of the Penitentiary, provided Mr. Acker ids no strong justification for his conduct. The lext Grand Jury, it urms, is to be invoked in this natter, and Recorder Scott was right in concurring. We understand that preparations are also making n another quarter, to bring up a case of impeachment in a contrary direction, involving a manifest breach of the law s of this State, in respect to the requirements for bail. What connection this latter case may have with the present Recorder and one or two lawyers, we will inquire at an early day next week. Let justice be done to justices, and iaw dispensed to lawyers. The administration of criminal justice is one of :he irost important advantages of civilized lociety and free government. But this adminisration oOght to'be pure, unpolluted, intelligent :orr?-ct, equitable in all its points and tendencies1 ignorance or mistaken motives change the current of justice, it becomes the duty ?f a rt-e press, unthrinkingly, boldly, and manfully, to lefend the right against the wrong?to expose ig. lorarce and imb? cillity, even if perched upon the >ench tor a brief space of time, that the peopie may have the opportunity, in their indignation, to irive it with odium from the high seat to which it las added no honor. Growth ok Tka?Ashiovltoui. a^d Mijtkrat. IIksotieces of the (tnitxp States?Every year levelopements are made showing the wonderful igrirultural and mineral resources of this much "avored laud. Mines of various kind* are being liscovered, from time to time, and experiments ihow that there is no articlc of agriculture that :annot be produced by our soil and climate. We perceive that an effort is about to be made o grow tea in the States of Georgia and Alabama, ['here is an immense amount of money annually Irawn from this country, for the purchase ol this irticle, and if wt could produce It in sufficient piantity to supply the home demand, we should lot only save the money thus expended, but add much to our prosperity, by opening a new vein of 'ndnstry and labor. In addition to this, we would jet a purer, cleaner* and more wholesome article Jian we reoeive from China. It is a well known "act that then- is more or less poison mixed with he tea which we get from that country. In order o give it that greenish color which is ignorantly tnd mistiikenly taken as a test of its goodness, the lativc manufacturers inn with it a portion ofl'rusnan blue, which is a poison. The greater partien f not all, of the green tea which in exported to the nited States, is adulterated in this way, and it ollows that in every cup of tea we drink we inijibe with it more or less poisonous matter. Tea ?ro\vn in the United States would tlso be purer ind cleaner than that which we gel from China, >ecaute the ingenuity of our people would Kwn produce a method of picking and curing the leaves. The plan adopted in China is to pick each eaf separately, and roll and curl it up with the finger* Jn undergoing this operation the leaf must absorb more or lesa ol prespi ration or sweat from the body et those who p* riorin it. A decoction of ?, handled in this manner, is, therefore, to a oertaiu e.xteut, the concentrated essence of Chinamen. It would not pay, in this country, to treat the tea leaf in thin manner, on account of the price of labor; and in the event of the ex|>eriment which is I about to he tried in the cultivation of this plant in he United States succeeding, this necessary ut all, would be performed in some nlK?r nmnii<*r ThKATKK'AL EmKI'TK in Pllli.AltEI.rHIA?Forkest and Malready.?The quariel between Forrest and Mucready, which has been slumbering lor several years, and only broke out the other day violently and publicly in Philadelphia, his given rise to a good deal ot conversation, much rtniaik, come bim molt, and a small modicum of philosophy, iii this latitude. The history of the difficulty between the two aspiring tragedians o( the pret-ent age, as given in the speech of the oue and the card of the other, at Philadelphia, presents some lineaments not very creditable toeither; but generally the opinion of the public, or the greater portion of it, is against the strange exhibition presented in Mr. Forrest's pronunnamento. According to the best and most authentic data, there can be no doubt that the friends or clique in London, of which Mr. Macready was the centre, attempted to write down Mr. Forrest, even before he atpeared on the London boards. Whether Mr. Macready instigated or concurred in this movement, it js difficult to tell. There can be no doubt, however, of the truth of the statement disclosing the Tact, thnt a literary man named Foster, made the onsets on the American tragedian which are referred to. This Foster, we know, although he is a man of superior talent, belongs to the clique of which Macready and Dickens were memhera; and noon after the return I of Dickens to England from this country, Foster put forth in the Fi/rrtgn Quarterly Rev me several moat I savage and brutal articles against the people, morals. tastes, and everything connected with the American people. In this general aspect, Mr. Forrest presents a strong case against the unfriendliness of the Macready clique in London; but we doubt very much whether Macready was indiscreet enough to commit himself very much m the matter. We rather think Macready held back in that affair, in ! pretty much the same way in which Forrest says 1 he himself held back in the attempt against Ma' crsady in New York, on his first appearance at the I Astor Place Opera House. All these matters, however, are no excuse for the style, the language, and the tone of the card put forth by Forrest. We think it is one of the most brutal, ungentlemanly, disgraceful pronunciamtntot that ever emanated from one the atncal man towards another. Mr. Forrest has a great many merits, much talent, unquestionable originality, hig'i principles of honor, a private life that is be unstained; and how such a man, in a moment of passion, could put forth such a brutal and disgraceful card as that to which he has affixed his name, in Philadelphia, is beyond our philosophy. He has clearly given the " van. tage ground " to Macready, and public opinion, at least here, is more inclined to sustain Macready than ever it was before. As between the two artists, the public care nothing about their quarrels, private or professional. Those who prefer the taste, and grace, and cold correctness of Macready, as an actor, will pay their dollar, and see him. These who like ihe energy, the variety, the contrasts of vulgarity and refinement, which sometimes mark Mr. Forrest's style of acting, will, of course, pay their dollar to see him, and take the worth of their money accordingly. Both of them in private life are correct, gentlemanly and polished men; both, to the lower members of the drama, as far as we have heard, they are equally insolent, aggressive and selfish. But those traita of character the public have little to do with, and care nothing about. On the whole, Forrest has lowered himself in public ettimation very materially, by the course which he has pursued in this quarrel, while th? prudence and discretion of Mr. Macready have i raised mm as mucn as me oiner nas been deI pressed: and this, we believe, is the judgment of the public. C'pbhaand Fashion.?la spite of all the good advice which we have given to the manager of the (>pera, we are very much afraid that the concern M ill turn out to be a duplicate of last year's e flair. Jjuring the week, the houses have been wretchedly thin?the performances passing off without tpirit, and the most liberal musical critics are gra. dually getting savage, even against their particu . lur friend, the manager. On Wednesday eveni inp. " Krnani" was performed, without Benedetti. Nine hard rehearsals during three days, had completely prostrated his powers, and he Was unable to make his appearance in the opera. Arnoldi. a new tenor, recently arrived from Italy, took the part, but without much power, voire, or talent, to fill it decently. With the exception of the subscription nights, which are only tolerably filled, by a few fashionables, the houses are very cold and very wretched. Even Pe Trobriant, the musical attmht of the French journal, begins to find fault i with manager Fry, in the most tender and touching places. The criticisms of this person are, some of them, bitter enough, almost amounting to the savage temper of Forrest's famous card, but expressed in much more gentlemanly] language. The extra nights, which Mr. Fry got up lor the " canat//*," are getting worse and w*rse, thinner and thinner, and, in all probability, must be , given up. We thought the management of the opera, du 1 ring last season, was bad, but really we much fear ' that the management of this season will present & I more woful spectacle than we have yet seen in the j way of opera tactics in New York. We are sorry i for Mr. Fry, for we are given to understand that ! he is an amiable man, gentlemanly in his manners, 1 but ha.u not nerve enough to be able to guide o 1 inam-gc an aflair so complicated as .in opera j establishment, with trouptt, and cliques, and cri" tics, and all sorts of persons, hanging about him and around him. We believe we shall have, one of these days, to take him under our own protecj tion, to put a little common sense into his head, i and Bet him latrly on his pins again. It will be a ; charity for any one to give a hand to a person who ia so amiable, and who has the disposition to do well, but who has hitherto developed brains insufficient fer the erisit^ I Mokk Mo>kv and Fooi.s Wastkh.?'The success of the recent magnificent piece of dupery practised on the Irish people, in this land, by which about %30,00l) were extracted from their pockets, and put into the pocket ol Robert Emmet, to build up a republic in Ireland?the success of that scheme, had brought more projectors into the field. On Thanksgiving day, M. M. Noah made an address to the Hebrews of this city, in the Synnjrogue in Crosby street, for the purpose of raising funds to rebuild tne temple 01 Jerusalem. J low much hr g?t wt know not; but possibly the republic and the tt mjle will go up together. The Ilebn ws, ' however, will take care bow tliey put $30,000 into any man'* pocket, without a receipt.

EFFECT OF TUB OPERATIONS OF THE I EEE SOIL PAhTlf. The votes of the free toil party have lost Taylor end Fillmore the following States, viz :? Electoral Votet. Maine 9 Ohio 23 Indiana 12 Wisconsin 4 Total 48 We have little doubt that Taylor would have carried these four States single handed, against Cats, as he would also have curried New York; for the democratic party were divided before the free soil movement, with regard to Illinois, the only effect of the Van Buren vote was to diminish the majority for Cass. The State waa sure for him, in any event. The operations, therefore, of Mr. John Van : Buren, and others of the free soil party, have, in reality, effected nothing, except to increase the I electoral votes of Gen. Cass 48 in number, as above shown Iliid there been no free soil movement, it i* evident that Taylor's electoral votes would have been 211, or 217, instead of 163 or 169, acroiding as the vote of Mississippi miy be deter- i mined?Baying nothing of the votes of Virginia i and Alabama; which States, *Un, Taylor hia appa- I rently lost, in consequence of the free toil move* ' ment.

The courting scene, in the little farce of '-Cut and Cone Again." is one of the most inimitably ludicrous scenes we have ever seen on the stage: his acting of the broken down drunken speculator, in the course of this piece, is alto a most amusing roene.

Jonathan Goodiiuc.?The greatest sorrow i?r?ade?t the mercantile and oommerclal oir elei>. yesterday morning, on tbe announcement of the dtatb of Mr. Jonathan Goodhue, one of the oldest and most respeotable n erobants of the olty. Well may his death be mourned, for no man in the community stool more fair before the world than he. He was generally looked upon u a pattern among his compeers. He m born In Sale<r, Mass., in the year 1782, where he re. mained until 1802, then being twenty-two years of age. Durin* that lime, his father, vrho was a man la ordinary circumstances, paid every attention to hU education, tbat he be prepared to work his way through life successfully. At that time he oame to the city as the agent of Mr. Grey, and by his upright course of life and business tact, be won for himself a reputation which lasted throughout life, and made bim the beloved of all who knew him. In a few year* be commenced the commission business, in South at. on his own aocouht, ani by a strict adherence to the noble principles with whloh nature endowed him, aooa became one of tbe nioa: popular cerchants In the olty. In 181 be was married te the daughter of General Clarkson, then residing at No. 33 Whitehall street, at wbioh place hi also resided up. to death. He pursued tbe same straight forward course through life which bad marked his earlier years. In no la. stance through his protracted life was he ever known to refuse aid to the needy, or allow merit to go unrewarded. He was of noble and generoua Impulses ; and with a spirit of oonsolentionsness and liberality almost to a tai lc. was held up by the mercantile community as the embodiment of what was honorable nd ?stimaoie. rossessea or grett ?DMtprire and Intelligence, his advice upon atl matter* perl|lnln| to the buvines* In which he was engaged was sought by his fellow merchants. As a friend, he waa unwavering, and might under all eiro umsUnoes be depended upon An inatance of this is clearly shown by bis great kindness to one who was in his employ for many years. When he first came to the city, he em. ployed a cart van, by the name of Stewart, to take hi" baggage from the boat to the hotel at which he stopped. Having seTeral times afterwards occasion to employ a oarsman, the same was always at hand, and when ha commenced business, be permanently engaged him. In a few years that cartman became incapacitated to perform the duties of his poet; but he still kept him, and provided for his family until he died It is said by those most Intimately acquainted with Mr. Ooodhue, tb?t be has in many cases sought out yoang men of true buslnesa and n oral worth, and placed them in sacb situations that several are now. through his aid, among the most respectable merchants of the olty. He was fae from all ostentatious display, and looked alike upon the rich and poor. About fifteen years ago ha 9 ntered the oommtrclal circle, In whioh, from|his great Integrity and liberality, he soon became a favorite, and In the Chamber of Commerce, hie opinion was always regarded as essential upon al' important subjoots, and bis advice followed with suoeef s. This branch of business, as well as the mercantile, has lost one of its most prominent members.? Truly it may bo said, a great man hath fallen, and hla loss will create a void which is not likely soon to be filled. About a year age, lie waa attacked with a diesate of the heart, which baffled all medioal skill.? Ho frequently spoke of death, and said he ehould die very suddenly; indeed, he expected that e very auooeedIng day would be the close of his mortal career. Ob Wednesday, he visited hie summer r?sl5enoe at States Island, and seemed quite cheerful. On Thursday night be seemed worse, and at two o'clock yesterday morn. Ing, his physician was summoned to hi* bedside; but the Icy hand of death vas already upon him, and all ;ffort? to resuscitate him wereln Tain At three o'clock bis spirit departed, which cast a gloom orer an Innumerable circle of friends. lUyuitMcat in pact.
