TH NO. 5384. TO THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY. nw Movement In Newspaper Advertising. The extensive establishment of the New York lit raid Is now complete In ell Itsparts. During the lest few months, vest Improvements In the eenetraetlon of new machinery, end othe r detells, here been mede, wblob Involved an expense tetbe proprietor or forty thousand dollers. Tboee eminent meobine meters, Messrs. Hoe ft Co., bevefarr.tebed us wltb tbls new meeblnery,en In new plen; end It Is, we believe, without e pereUel, . In e'tber fVarope ?r America.

By these improvements wo ore enabled to print, with equal facility , ling'* or a doable sheet, at tbe ratio of nearly tenil*miamUt?jiiti ptr hour. Our daily edition, of nearly Itcentgjflve thousand copies, tan now he easily printed in about two hours and a half. No other newepapar est a bib lament in tbe woild, with tbe exoeption of tbe Londc.n Timet, ean command suob maobinery, or produce, such results in daily journalism. Vbtie are tbe means and iaatrameats with wbleb we. now go to work, to improve and enlarge tbe eapac ities of a daily newspaper. We are enabled to offer to tbe business community of all classes, advantages, In the way of advsrtislng wblcb no other journal in the eonntry can present te their consideration With the present form of our issue?a single sheet?our capacity has been limited, much to the rvgret of alarge portion of the business community, who have, again and again, wished to publish their advertisements in a journal possessing the comprehensive circulation which the Herald has among the mercantile and business people of the oountry, not only in New York, hut in every oity and State in the Union, and throughnut Europe. We beg, therefore, to state to the publio, of all olasseB| that we intend to begin the issuing of a double sheet, sene time in the middle of next week, for which we hall receive advertisements, at a reduction <>f fifty per sent from Ike rates now charged in the tingle sheet? all such advertisements to be inaerted in the inside nf the double sheet, along with other reading matter that will be neeesaary to fill up that portion of the Journal. The existing rates for advertisements in the inside of the single sheet, and the plan on whloh they are received, having reoolved the approbation ef the publie, will remain as they have been for the last few months. That this plan and the ratea for advertising in the single sheet, have been satisfactory to the community, we entertain no deubt, from the faet that inec we commenced that system our advertising patronage has doubled, and in numerous lnstanoee cm than doubled. The distinct proposition which we now make to the business community of all classes, will, we hope, be olearly understood. We ean publish a double sheet ?rery day, with the same facility with whioh we now publish the single sheet; but the Introduction of an extended and ebcaper system of advertising, whioh the double sheet will provide, must have a beginning before its advantages oan be realized by the community, and of course we Intend to begin the new movement in this s j stem of advertising, by first colleotlng a sufficient number ol advertisements at the proposed rates for the double sheet, and of issuing that shoet only when that sufficient number shall have been obtained. By this process we shall first publish a double sheet, with this new olass of advertisements, once a week, aoeerding to the patronage offered by the publlo, and as that patronage Increases and presses onus?which we have no deubt it will?we shall be enabled topubliih double sheet twice a week, and gradually extend it, until we shall publish a double sheet every day in the week. When this point is reached, the Jitw York Herald, double ibeet, at two oents per eopy, will be Le cheapest newspaper in the world. This we conceive will be the easiest and most practicable method of introducing this extended system of advertising, which we contemplate, to the consideration of the business community of New York and the surrounding oltles. With these views, therefore, and with these explanations, ws beg t? state to business men of all kinds? merchants, shippers, jobbers, (general or partionlar) marine and insurance companies, associations, booksellers, venders of medicines of all kinds, dry goods dealtrs, fancy store keepers, and in fact all classes engaged in the diversified business of New York and the adjacent elty?that we are now prepared to reoelve their advtrtisc ments at onr office, on the northwest corner of Fulton and Nassau streets; to it inserted on Ikt inside of tkt double sheet, which tot propose to publish at fifty per sent less in prist than those which tee publish in Ike inside of the single sheet? a reduction which is of the greatest importance to the business classes of this great eity. Those advertisements will be displayed in a reasonable way, calculated to attract the attention ef the reader. The first double sheet to be issued on this plan, will appear on Tuesday or Wednesday of next week, or earlier or later, aooordlng m the advertisements come la. City Intelligence.

As the testimony progressed, a great eieicement prevailed, in contequenoe of notice having been given, that the deoeased hade made a confess Ion to the Rev. Mr. Southard, just previous to her death. When the Coroner sailed this divine on the stand to testify, he remarked that the deoeased hnd made a statement te him, under the promise that if ahe lived it waa to be kept a secret, and ahe would then make her own statement; but if ehe dlej. he was thea at liberty to divulge the statement ehe was about to makt; and he therefore wished the Coroner to understand that he was mot devlatlag 'rem his mlalsterlal duties; nor was he exposing any reerets that might have been tntrnsted to him.

TUX LAST WJUUt OF TIIB SECOND SESSION. RensUi WiiHinoTos, Feb. 28,1840. CIVIL AND DIPLOMATIC APPROPRIATION!. The bill of tbe oifil and diplomatic appropriations, with tbe amendments adopted a? In Committee of the Whole, having been reported to the Senate last night on tbe eve of their adjournment, after tbe conclusion of the miscellaneons matters of the morning hour, the aid bill and amendments earn# up for the concurrence* Of the Senate Tbe item making appropriations to meet tbe stipulations of tbe Mexican treaty was stricken out; a separate bill baviog been passed for that objeot. Tbe question was next proposed on agreeing to t e amendimnt appropriating 820 COO eaoh for the purchase of certain private papers of the late General Washington and tbe late President Monroe. Mr Bkrribn askrd a division of the question. The Washington papers were conoorred in; and on altering to tbe aiauie for tbe purchase cf tbe Mouroe tapers tbe vote stood 28 to 20. So the whole amendment was agreed to. CALIFORNIA. The next question was, at tbe Instance of Mr. Div, upon tbe amendment of Mr Walker, of Wisconsin, providing to extend tbe revenue laws, the la oian laws. ine land law*, no , over tbe territory of the Halted States west ot the Rio Grande to tee Pacific), atid providing to oonfer upon the President the discretion of the gottrnment of said territory, and authorizing him to enforoe all needful rules and regulations for the preservation of order and the dispensing of justice; authorising him, also, to make all necessary territorial, legislative, executive and judicial appointments, under these general provisions, and to change and inodtty the same at bis option, until this temporary anthority shall be superseded by aot of Congress. Tt e Vice announced the amendment to the Senate. Mr. Dig took the floor, and remarked that ho regretted

the necessity of consuming any ponlon of the time of the Senate at this stage of the sereim. but that he fell It his duty to submit soma observations upon this amendment, and upon the general sobjeot He was apposed to an amendment iroviding foragovrrtment tor Calilornia. as an appeudage to this or any appr< ptiation bill. The question was ef an importance far too great to be disposed of In this Incidental manner. And he would rather admit California as a State at onca, than arm the President with tbn extraordinary powers whioh this amendmeut proposes to confer. Such a grant of authority la utterly indefensible, and wholly inexpedient, lie would first speak upon the amendment offered by the Senator from Penneetee, (Mr Bell) to admit Califoruia as a State; secondly. upon that of Mr Walker, proposing to oonfer upon the President despotic powers; tairdly, upon the House bill, rt feired te a committee this morning, providing a terii'orial government for California Phe dictatorial powers proposed to be conierred by the amendment of Mr. Walker were a* he thought, wbol y inadmissible. He had great faith In the honesty and integrity ef the President elect; but would oonfer no such extraordinary and absolute powers upon any man. But the powers were not only diotatonal; tboy were unlimited in point of time. Passing back to the early history of the government, Mr Hix remarked npon the prudence and precaatlons whioh had regulated the admission of states into the Union. These piasautloas ought to he followed up and no Territory slouldhe admitted into the Union as a State, till lte people ere fsmtHaiized with the theory and praollee of tba g< veri mcnt?till tbey can rather facilitate tnan embariats It in Ite operations. Mr. Dix then recapitulated tbu numerous and extraordinary obstacles existIng in California to Its aduitsslon as a State -tba indigenous population neltbar understood ear laws nar cur language-tbey wars too small In number, anil soarcely emerged from the pastoral state of spoil herbalism; although thousands of our Intelligent and enterprising ettixms were ponrlng Into Celtiornla, there weie also thousands of foreign adventurers going In from all quarters of the world. Society there was In a state of iueion; and the discovery of the gold mines had oaiy sorted to make bad Infinitely worse. No eouniry was ever in a worse oonditloa for the functions of a repsrate loeal constitutional government, than California at this lime. Before its admission as a State itshonld pass through the proceisoflermentation, and the training ef a territorial supervision over It by uoogrers. ineamendment01 io?senatorfrom WI.?oon In, is providing for tho territory west of the Rio Ornnde, would icnve New Mexico out of the Union, nd altogether to the mtroy of ehanoe. The bill of the eeleot oommittee proposed an equally hamilia'lng dismemberment of California; and Mr. Dix eatd he hould resist the dismember meat of these territories without their consent, or their being merged by mere I aot of Congress, as me: e fractions ( f other States The only measuiu of wisdom and expedienoy, as he apprehended the necessities of the case, was a territorial government for earh of the new territories, with their recognised bound arias as transferred to us. Indlscnseing, then, the general subject, there were two questions which he rhould consider. 1. What is the Interest of the government ! 2. What Is the interest of California and New Mexico t Mr Dix recapitulated the history of the introduction cf slavery into Notth America, in 16*0, and of its quiet extension, in opposition to the wisnea of the people, over the whole of the British oolonles. Next he recapitulated the blstorieal foots respecting the movements of the fathers of the republic, for arresting the extension if slavery: and produoed a copy of a document from the archives of the State Department the original of which is in the hand writing of Thomas JtHerson, whtoh proves him beyond all donbl She father of the ptinoiple embodied in the ordinance of 1787. lie hoped, therefore, that it wonld be oalled heiesfter the Jefferson proviso Coming to the main question of the exclusion of slavery from the territories, Mr Dix appealed that slavery had long einoe been atoiishcd in California aad New Mexico; that It was first proclaimed to be abollsned by (Juerrero, In 1829, white proclamation was re affirmed by Congress in '34 and In '39. To permit slavery to enter these territories woold be to subvert this prohibition, and to reestablish slavery where it had been abolished. It wonld he te give energy to the multiplication of the black race, whioh adds neither to the Intelligence nor moral power of the country, which excludes free labor, wnloh (hale out the energies af the white raoe. This ought not to be dons. W e should snooursge and sxtend fres labor; wa should give all the facilities in our power to tlie eupiemscy and increase of the white raee. The extension of slavery into California and New Mexico would be unjust to those people, who hare no slaves, end desire none. Mr Dix adverted to the negotiation* of Mr Trtst with the Mexicans, after the armlitlee at the city cf Mexloo, and with some interruptions by Mr Poote, he raid that the helf civilized Mexicans, vanquished, and compelled to treat, had yet implored, a* a last request, that we should not carry slavery into i he territories which they were oompelied to surrender How should we stand before tha world if we disregarded this humane and exalted request, so consistent wl>h the spirit of the age, and the sympathies ef mankind ' Mr. Mason?Dose the Senator refer to the petition from California? Mr IU-sx raid the negotiations of the Mexicans with Mr. Trist were instigated and controlled by the British agents in Mexico. Mr. Dn replied, that at all events the people of Mexico were known to be averse to the Introineiton of slavery into their territories In eonolnalon, fee said that New \ ork would never consent to the extension of sla i very to territories where It does aot now exist.

After the lapse of nearly an hoar, tho team was put upon tb? gas pipes, and the chandelier burned away handsomely for the remainder of tbe evening.
