Taylor ?The Dlflli ulilci to be .Encountered. The triumphant election of General Taylor to the Presidency, wa? only the first difficulty that had to be encountered, or that will have to be removed, aa far as the country is concerned. The org&ni* zation of his cabinet, and generally of his administration, and the adoption of m?u and measures, are all matters of the deepest importance, and will require the greatest moderation and attention in coming to a popular decision. We have, before this, taken some notice ol the Jiff 1. ... L " ?__ ' .1 ainicuiii<-B wnicn mr t-aiiy movers iu me cause ot General Taylor tncountered in this metropolis,and els? where in the Noithern States. Man/of the editors and |>oliliciana now coming forwaid every day, and claiming the exclusive merit and ull the honor of having put forth and elected General Ta)Ior to the Presidency, are also busy laying down rules for his adoption, and measures to he carried out by his administration?measures which have do refeience to the general interest! of the country, but are merely calculated to benefit their own private f.nd selfish interests. In this category we include certain j >urnals in Boston and New York?journals which are only the organs of particular cliquea of office beggars, sj*eulators, and men who make politics a trad? Their (>03ition, history and movements in the recent election, ought to be understood at the proper tune, quoted and fully set down for the guidance of General Taylor and his real friend?, and made the topic of commentary, so as to enlighten the whole Union, and men of all parties, nn the subject. South of this metropolis?in Philadelphia, B.iltr more and Washington?there exist the same ele" meuts of mischief, composed of men who tacked themselves, late in the day, to the movement tha' elected C?n^r*l Taylor, and who will breed n great deiJ of trouble and dis.urbanct' hereafter, i' their puipoBes are not exposed arid Pet aside in time. In Philadelphia, we much fear that some of the most serious* bfetacles tc the successful commence* ment and carry ing on of the new Taylor ad minis, tret ion, will come from some of those narrowminded and exclusive politicians who make the i A<rth American the lr special and permanent organ. On reviewing the course of that journal, what ?t>ikes the mind most forcibly in, its violent oppoei- ^ tion to Uit t.otnination ol Gen. Ta\lor before it wthk made : and now that the ?lection of the old hero it m cured, we find its tone full of hypocrisy, J exelunvenei-fi, narrow-mindedness, and denunciation?publicly hnd secretly?against all those who J were trn-i instrumental in bringing forward the hero ot the Hio fituride a? a candidate for the Presi- ^ dency. We remember very well the conduct o^ ' that journal previous to and at the time of the de- ( 'iven- of the famous anti-Taylor, anti-war harangue ' winch the unhappy and unfortunate Henry Clay perpetrated last winter. Its intolerance and ( malevolence toward a the independent eflorts ol ( other portions of ihe press which tried to repor' j that apeech, received a just and dignitied rebuke at | 'hat jeriod of its career. | The journal published in Philadelphia, called the ^iorth Afntrnun, and all its editors and supporterat were fanatical tnenda of Henry <'Iay, and up to the last moment opposed Gen. Taylor with the j.trongest teii'|>er and hoat'hty. Subsequent events, it is true, compelled them to fall into the movement which made old Zsch President; but that only displays still more fully the real character and depth of their political hypocrisy It was not til| alter the election of Mr. J ohm-ton as G ivernorof Pennsylvania, that they began to think it necessary to wfumr a disposition to support strongly Genernl Tsylor. As soon as that took place, our cotenipo rati*-* ol (hat journal b*pan to display jealousy and Miifi?ioa toward* the original supporter* oi On. Taylor, and particularly toward* thcue clubs and individuals who wrre early in the field in favor ( (hat dutinguiabcd man. Since the election the course pun u*d by that journal, and ont oi 11 by the l artieato whom we refer, eshihit* the same ex* cln?iveat>d narrow-minded temper toward* the other (fiend* of On. Taylor a* that alio wo to them when th? y thought the Kentucky Senator would have carried the nomination Morton McMicliael, one ol tho?? editor*, so doubt want* the cuxoni honse lor himself or his lriend Mr. White. This ie?mi to be the purpose of his course since the election. The editorials of tha^ piper, us well on the slavery question as on the t*riff, are calculated rather to throw difficulties in the way ol G-en. Taylor's administration, and the formation of a fcuccehslul cabinet, than anything we have seen; and the course which those journalists and their nenas i urtue pcimi to have lor its object the alternative either of all the ollices in the custom house, or hostility to the m w administration of Gen. Taylor. These, we believe, are correct views in relntion to ihe (i siiion ol s^ve'al of 1 e Vnylor pap-rs in the large Atlantic cities, particularly those journals which ounie out only by compulsion in favor of Gen. Taylor as our next President, a few weeks before his nomination or election. We are watch, ing them with the same attentioi nn 1 with the seme understanding with which we watched the whele movement that has carried Gen. Taylor into the Presidency, since the summer of 1S40, wlen we first met the distinguished hero at Niagbra, and from tint place described him as the^ great genius of the army?the real Rough and Heady of the nation ; and alto fiom the time when our original impressions of 1840 were revived in the month ot May, 1816. when we first named him f>i... ? -r _ii -.i i n>i i ivriucnif, 111 amiu'iMiiuii ui an outers ! Vet we claim no credit, no favor?, no offices? nothing ol any kind?from the Hew administrationThe income of the New York lltrald is nearly equal to that of the Presidency itself. We are in. de endent of all administrations, and ask. nothing of any one of them but ttie public good, on correct general principles, looking to the union and prosperity of the whole Union. From wha we have seen take place since the election1 we are satisfied that many of the journals oj the Atlantic cities, and many of the leading politicians, including ex-Governor Seward, Mr. Webster, and i there, are already preparing to assume ultra grounds, both on the Wiluiot proviso and tariff, in order, from that point of opposition v.o threaten the new administration into their wishes as regards the distribution of office and the removals of old office-holders. For this mischievous purpose, we have reason to believe the RmUi American has declared itself in favor of ultra tariff measures, as well as the advocacy of ultra slavery principles. Now, it is well known that the moderation and compromise which entered into the constitution of the United States at the organization of the government, must enter into all successful and popular administrations of the existing government. The ultras are already beginning, both on the tariff and Wilmot proviso questions, and ether poinls, to assume a qwisi ground of hostility, as the basis of further action, unless their ravenous desires are gratified in the distribution of office. We have much more to say on these points. We want nothing of Gen. Taylor, and we can therefore afford to tell him and all others, the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Tiik National Guard Letter.?W* publish in another column the translation of a letter written by one of the National Guards. It was omitted yesterday. The guard visited London in October. It shows the cordiality which now exists between England and France, llis visit to the ex-King of the Frcnch is fraught with richness, and cannot but be read with intertBt. The large army and navy of the new republic are doubtless, in a measure, the cause of the kindly feeling o{ England. A great change front the feeling manifested some fifty-six years ago^ St Ckoix?I wit resting.?Accounts from St. Croix to the 9th November have been received. A smart shock of an earthquake was felt on the morning of the Sth, at about half-past seven o'clock, which passed over without causing the slighest injury. Copies of the Avtt, published at St. Croix, down to the 9th inclusive, came to hand ;?but as is usual they contain nothing of the least moment, except the following, which is the only original item the paper ever contained, so tar as we have seen. It is in answer t? an allusion to the ^i>it made a tew weeks since, similar to the above remarks. The poetical editor gives it in the following exquisite style:?

Forexpressing tliHt i>|>inM>n in vanons ways, and pointing oi.t the best method of avoiding constant fmeutci, and the r ri rule and launhter of the world around, a number of journals which have been selected as the pet orgbns of the manager, have been constancy ab bive, personal, vulvar and ungentl'*nv*nly, towards the JVirto York Herald. We care little for paper pallets coming from obfcute sources, und fr< m persons without character or reputation of nn\ kind, ns Ion? as we enn point to a position j and character of thirty years' standing in this communit), and dare any one to brum a e?inijjle it-ui of reproach against it in any particular way. Those ^t'l'ngs belong to the fh?aud to small fry indeed. Hut apropos of the singular ?mrutc on Wednesday evening Inst. We hhall take the statement of this row iKm two organs of the manager?the Courier on oDe ?ide, and the Tribune on the other. Here they are:? l.*Ht t-??-ninp ftffilm assumed such an n?poet AD to It imnciHtire uooti Mr Frv to uivw hi* amliMn** information of th? pnnMon in which he * *? placed; atd at the olosing of the first act he appeared buf >re the curtain ai.ti Mired that Sifcnor Ueiirdetti had bat n moment before infornu-d him he would uor elng tan p?rt?f Pollione Id "Norma'' ou Kri ay niicht-, L'ivini ax bis reason that Madsme I.iiborde fcai made hnmelf ridiculous in ' Norma.''' and was not fit to Mng with artists- adding that Mr. Fry was not his manager, bat th* pubho to which only he vti amenable, and by which ?nlv his conduot would be regulated. Mr. Fry then retired. When the curtain fell, a committee of the snbsorihers attempted to compromise the matter, and Benedetti finally consented to t>iBg on Friday night but npun meeting with Mr Fry. u?ed abusive language, and accused bim of direct falsehood in his statement to the audience; to which Mr Fry replied hy ttriKing him in the fact; Benedetti drew hit twurd and made a fills I at Mr Fty. wounding in the hand, at hr did to, one of Iht committer. The re nc outre then e-.ded, and the tidid act w?? sung. at the close of whioh the audience departed ? Courier. We learn tbat Signer Benedetti Bent for Mr. Fry dorirg the oovri-e ot ihe first act of 'Luoreiia," and told him that lie would not ring Polliine. in ' Noma " on Friday evening, because Madame Laborde had mtde hern-If ridiculous in "Norma." and was not a (it person torir>gwith artists?tellinir Fiy that the Dublio *-as bis manager, and not be. Fry then saying, that if suoh were the case, the puhlic should know (be facts, inmediately went before tbr curtain, and stated what Benedetti bad said The audience loudly applauded the manager, and as loudly hissed Benedetti upon his appearing in tbe second net Meantime the committee of t-ubscribera attempted to oompromlse the matter, and Benedetti promised to sing on Friday niicht Upon meeting Mr Fry. however, he comtsenoed at once abusing bim, saying that be bad statrd to the public what vas not true, and tbat, in i-hort, he was a liar. Upon this, Fry immediately laid down opera glass and hat. and planted a right hander in the face of the handmate t*?nr>r Runt-dptti th?n (1f?* hin a rwl a pa'H at the tmprettario. when they were separated, and the performance went on ? Triiune. The following account of theemeul; is fiom the I repoiter cf this journal:? At the end of the fir?t act of I.ucrezla " In the in- I termtssion, Mr. Fry stepped in front of the curtain, and said:? Ladies *m> Genti-em**:? I id compelled to make known to you. that in a conversation I b?ve just bad with Signor Benedetti. he has refun d to sirg. on Friday next, the part of Pollione, in ' Norma," station that be wished not to compromise bis talent with a chanleutt. who was very able to ring the part of Adina. but not that of Norma. Tbis speech created a great eensatioa. and it was followed by a rerulsr hissing When the curtain rose for the second act, Signor Benedetti was received with an accompaniment of hissing, applause, and muslo. This continued during the whole act. But the funniest part ef the emuete took pla^e ''behind the wings." in the dressing room of Signor Benedetti, where assembled. immei|!ate)y after the second act, Messrs. Fry, Coit, J W. (IsrarJ. and other members of the subrcribere1 committee. The conversation was hod so animated that, after remark* made by M. Fry in rtgnrd to that affair. Signor Benedetti called him a 0 dllar! At these words, M. Fry answered with his clenched flet. when Signor Benedetti seizing his swerd. made a thrust at the manager. A regular prite oui chtrctur ensued and during the mctfe. Mr. Gurard, having tried to separate the combatant*. reoeived a cut on the back of the band . During this by-play, the conversation in the lobbies of the Opera-house was very animated, and the audience seemed to be divided into two parties?one in favor of Vr. rry toe uiunr in iitui ui vooor nui ail IQ4 I partisan*. though with different opinions, ??em?*l to | agree p^rfeotlv on the point that Mr Pry had done wrong in coming ont In the middle of the performance to disturb the nleaturn of the dilettanti by creating such a "hul>bul> " Kvcry one said that If this statement bad to bf made public. It had bett r have been done after the performance was over, or the next day through tbe medium of the pwM. By these statements, which agree with each other very nearly, we find how Mr. Fry treats his artists, according to the rules of the green room, and what they have to ex;>ect if they do not subn it, without expostulation or complaint, to his whims and ignorance. As far us we have h?ard the /nets, we are more disposed to believe th" statement of Benedetti than t:iat of Fry, and that in fact, Bence'etti was perfectly right when he accused Fiy of having stated in his speech to the audience what was not strictly tree in regard to himself, Benedetti. For expostulating againbt the correctness of the statements p t 'orth by Fry, Benedettt is only replied to bv a blow in the face?a regular righthander, ns the Fourierite philosopher technically calls it. This affair setms to be a specimen of the Opera management dunngthe present season, from the beginning up to the nicht in question. We all remember how Madame Pico was insulted nnd summarily sent adrift, after being engaged. Thn{ distinguished artist has now a suit pending again?, the manager. We also learn that Mr. Fry, on one, if not more, occasions, has exhibited his high qualities) to a certain extent, towards (he amiable, mild, and acccm I'll shed l!osi, who, c tainly, although a man of personal power and strength, would not harm a fly or a fry in his way. We also remember the disgraceful treatment which the amitble and accomplished Trufli received in Philade'phia? the manner in which the pet journals of the manager came out and abused her in the liiurcvri IV lino, ou ou niut eilC UHU lO OJIPR the season here with a card, explaining her position to her old friends in New York. J'.von lh? editor of tlie Sumlny Atlnt denounced the ai" tempt made hy Fry, through his agent, to ,;rt his attacks against the amiable Trufli published in Ins paper. We see, in the recent fracas and fight, that Mr. Fry is utterly unequal to the position which the committee behind the curtain have placed him in, and ihst they have nnde an great a blunder as was made in the Opera of last year, which broke up and failed before it completed its engagements wiili the public, by which the subsci ibers were cheated out of one third of the subscription money amounting to fix or seven thousand dollar?. All these facts and statement*, coming from the |>et orpins of the mnnnper, show that the course pursued by the Herald lias been justified throughout, and that it* anticipations will be realized to the fullest extent. The materials engaged at the Aster Place Opera House are ample and numerous to bring out excellent opera, if there was a manager of skill and judgment at their head. I tut nhat can be expected of a man who is so silly and ignorant as to destroy the really fine buffo talent of haborde, by exhioiting her in the character of Norma, for which she is in every way unequal and unsuitfdl In such a condition of things, what ought to be done 1 Wc ?ee no proper courso for those insulted and abused artists?ilenedetti, Trufli, and Rosi?but to withdraw, at all hazards, from that bungling concern, und ofler their services to either the I'ark or the Broadway theatres, where (here are men of talent, knowledge, and energy, to organize them and provide Italian opera for three nights in the week. At either of these theatres, we are persuaded, night after night would witness an array of beauty, elegance, and refinement feathered from the world around us, that would shine in a great degree more refulgent than one half of thoae who frequent the Astor Place Opera House, nnd some of whom will have to take the bent fit of the insolvent laws before they get through. Let those much abused artists boldly assume a proper ground; let them refuse to submit to the ignorance and folly of Mr. Fry, withdraw there will be no difficulty with thctn at the Park or Broadway theatres. P. S.?Since the above waa written, we have received the following statement from Signor Btsnedetti:? Naw York, Not 30, 1849. Jai. O Etq. My Dear Sir : I aui eomp?ll*d to xnllolt from you prrn>Ui-k<n to oeoupy a portion of one of your ooluinii*, wtib a M*t?-ui,.ut rf fitot< in r>-n*id to tba ooeurraacaii ??thf Opcia, on Wrduu?day eifninj between the in%DM^cr ami myn-lf. Ittswilh th? ?l aenreit r?luo'?afl? iPfti I aui induced to obtrude upon tbo public attention matters which do Dot aopropria'ely coinn within it* jurlf diet too; but the bold and org* nix <d effort which ha* been made by Mr. Fry and hi* instruments to def?me u>j character as a ntiieu. and hi an artist, require that I should say somethiog for my own protection as well as to erpnse the oonduot of a man who, by the extraordinary combination he presents, of Imbecility and pretension. 1? likely to do more to haiird the |'ern>anent success of the Opera in this oity, than the open tfl.rts of a thousand enemies On Wedneedny evening. Mr Kry aame to my dressing rooifi for the purpoe of desiring me to sing the part ot l'ollioce, in the opera of ' Norma he was accompanied by Mr. Coit one of the Opera oomoaittee. After hearing his request, I told him that it would not be right for me to take a part whloh had been aisigned to Sig Arnoldi, because to do so would be a violation ot the proper etiquette which custom had prescr bed betwten aitUts in tbe Italian theatre Mr. Fry insisted upon my doing so, however, upon the gtound that I had beeu originally seleoted f >r the opera of '-Norma," and that Stg Arnoldi had OBly b*en temporal ily put into tbe opera, until I should recover iroin inv ret ent 111' ess. I immediately reminded him of the fact that the Direotor, Maretiek, had applied to me on Saturday In t to know it I had any ohjeoMnn to transferring the part of Pollione to Slg Arnoldi, and upon Informing hint that 1 ?r?s quite willing, he assured ne thi.t such would be the arrangement Judge then of my surprise. I exclaimed to learn as I snou did, that the "day before my permi'ston was solicited, t? e rote had b<'< n anil^ned to that gentleman. the rehearsals ordered with him. and that In the faoe of nil this, the bills of the Monday following annoanoed that I would appear in this character which I had been expressly asked to relinquish. I denounced tbli a* an unworthy triok. Fiy, without being able to excuse himdf for this cordnct, rej >lned by insisting that I Lhould take the part away fiom Sig Arnoldi; finding that I could not expect auytbing from his courtesy, I appealed to him to spare Arnoldi the mortification of bi'lng thrust out of an opera in which he had only appeared once. Fry still refused. I then told h.m that his capricious and tyrannical oonduot towards the artists, and his iujadioluus course in assigning to his pertormers parts wholly nnsuitei to their peculiar talents, would destroy the Opera, as the ab urdity of drest-ing up an Adina for the part of Norma. bad already been made the subjeot of oruel ridicule. This ended our interview. Fry started precipitately from tbe room, offended bj my orit'cism upon bis managerial arcomplibhraeots and without stopping ei'herfor breath or reflection. rnshed before the curtain in the presenceofthe audience, out nf breath,and if 1 may judge fr< m his speech out of his bead lie said, acctiuiuK to the report printed in tbe Mirror, I presume bj autboil'yI have juct seen Benedetti, in bi? room and be positively lefoses to appear in the cbvracter assigned him, on the ground that Madame Ialoiile is to be tbe " Norma" He says she singe ri<iculeu?ly. and is*not fit to sing with artists." No* it will be seen from the minnte narrative I have already given of the conversation with Fry, that I did not use any of tbe expressions whioh be attributed to me in bis speech I pledge myself for the aocnracy of the statement which I have made, and 1 deny, in the most empbatio and unqualified manner, that I refused to t ing in the opera of Norma:*' but above all. I denounce the assertion that I refused out of disrespect to Madame Laborde. as utterly false I so denounced it on Wednesday evening, to Fry's faoe; for as soon as I ascertained what be bad said, I had an interview with Messrs Ovraid, ?'oitand others, before whom, and in Fry's presence, I appealed to Mr Coit to say whether I bad used any such language, of which be promptly and fully acquitted me. I tlieieupon pronounced Fry, in the presenee of these gentlemen, a liar and aslandeter lie appears to have furnished moot of tbe papers with his account. also of a fight which he attempted to get up with me, in order to extricate himself from the embarrassing situation in (which I bad placed him. by oonvlcting hi in of a wilful falsehood, the account is oorrect enough in tbe main, with tbe single exception thkt a alight mis'ake is made in tbe name of the individual who receipt d tbe only blow given. It li always in bad taste or a man to report bis own share in a conflict; but it would be especially ungenerous on my part to say much of thep'owetfl or the pride of a "Napoleon." whe<e first impulse, after being knocked over for kls insolenoe, was to brush the dirt oil his clothes, and whose next niovement was to secure a speedy retreat. It is very evident, from tbe elaborate articles whiob appealed in tbe papers this morning. In relation to this affair, tbat tbe emissaries of the manager were unusually industrious last evening, in circulating reports fabricated to suit the taste of their employer; there are many erroneous statements in these artloles, which I would like to notice and whioh I could easily refute; but I know tbat this note has already far exoe*ded the limits due to the subject, and I must, therefore, let them pats, conIdent that the final judgment of this oommunity will vindicate its world-wide reputation for justice and Intelligence. It will be seen, by tbe correspondence annexed to tbi-mte tbat it Is my intention to slnn in-Norma," on Friday evening, and in so doing, notwithstanding the injurious and tind gi.iflcd c< ndu-,t of Mr ry, 1 have endeavored a^ain to evince my gratitude to tbe patrons ol the Opeiain Niw York, f->r tbe kindness and gene ro-Hy they have so of en extended to m?.

MifS Chapman, as Matilda, one of the daughters of Mrs Trapper, kept the audience eonvuMeil with laughter?exhibiting such a shocking bad bonnet. Mrs. Vernon, as Mrs. Trapper, was exceedingly happy In ber conception of the character. In such ohartoters we think Mrs. Yemen has soarcely a rival. The "Musical Arrivals" was, as on former nl(h(s, well played and well received. Miss Cfrapm^n and Mr. Meyer, being the principal attractions-, were received with renewed approbation; especially the olever Miss Chapman, who is now a great favorite. The " Pas Napoiitaine." by Miss Walters and M. Frederick, was executed with m-jch grace. Tbe evening's performances concluded with the laughable pieoe called ' Tom and Jerry in America"?in which Mr Brougham and Mr Burton keep tbe whole house delighted from the beginning to tbe finish of the piece.
