We understand that, formerly, Mr. Bowen was the candidate for this post, put forward by Mr. Seward; but Mr. Bowen has been withdrawn, and is now considered more eligible Tor the consulship to Liverpool; and now the light is as to whether General Taylor shall appoint Mr. Young, with the consent of his cabinet, or whether Senator Seward shall succeed in appointing Mr. Brady, in opposition to the President himself and all about him. In furtherance of Mr. Seward's project, several important meetings have been held here, missions have been sent to Albany and Washington, travelling committees have been organized, and a vast quantity of grog and intrigue, small beer and manoeuvre exhausted on the general subject. In addition to this, the New York Exprtu issued, the other day, a pronuncinmento, threatening Rough and Ready and his administra- j tion with the seven plagues of Egypt, if they dure to appoint such a man as ex-Governor Young. The Courier and Enquirer would follow in the same train, if the mission to Madrid had been disposed of. The other whig journals have been thrown into a fog, and do not know what to do, with the exception of the self-nominated candidate for the marshalship, who thinks that the beginning and end of all things are concentrated on that post. We further learn that on Friday or Saturday ext, this important question will be determined by the President and his cabinet, in special council assembled. Bets are being made in the porter houses about town, that in this appointment Senator Seward will beat President Taylor, and appoint his own man. We take no interest, or, at least, very little, in this contest. It is the duty of the President and his cubinct to make their own appointments. If they make good ones, we shall approve of them ; if bad, we shall denounce them, fairly and honestly. Before the formation of the cabinet, we were frequently solicited to recommend particular individuals for that important post; but we invariubly refused, considering that journalists are not good cahinet-nmkers?that they are merely the representatives of the people, for denouncing bad appointments, or approving of good ones. In relatiou to the collcctorskip of this port, we entertain the same opinion. Let the President and his cabinet make their own selections, if they can ; or let Mr. Seward and his clique make them for them, if they can't or dare not. After the work is done, whether ex-Governor Young or ex-Mayor Brady be ajipointed, we shall examine the deed, and approve or denounce it according to its merits. The result will determine whether General Taylor he President, dt jurt and dt facto, of the United States ?or whether Senator Sewurd, the little Van Buren and smaller magician of the great whig party of New York, and abolitionist to boot, is not really the President dt jurt, dt facto, and dt?everything.

The Colleetorshlp of New York?Tremendous Alarm and Exeltement about that Ofltre. 1 Hiring the last ten days, there has been a most tremendous excitement in relation to the Collectorship of New York, among the politicians at Albany and Washington, and particularly among the grog-shops in the city. The greut <]uestion to frolvc is this?who shall make the appointment to this important office 1?whether a certain old fellow by the name of " ltough and Ready," shall make the appointment; or whether an abolitionist agitator from Auburn, formerly a Governor of this ?tate, by the name of Seward, and ambitious of being the Van Buren of the whig party, shall take the appointment into his own hands, und select the man himself. According to our accounts from Washington, and concurrent testimony in this city, together with certain events that recently transpired at the Astor Hotel and Irving House, it seems that the two opposing candidates are the two great X's of the day?John Young, ex-Governor of the State * of New York, and Wm. V. Brudy, ex-Mayor of the city of New York. John Young is the candidate of old Hough and Ready, usually known l?y the name of General Taylor, and Mr. Brady is the i: j??? ?r 11. -.1 >1... ?i;?u ?< Tike Mew Administration, end Its Newspapers. At present, there are only two subjects connected with the new administration at Washington, which engage public attention?one being the removals and appointments, the other the newspuper organs of the 1 "resident and his cabinet. N< very great importance attaches, just now, to the removals and appointments, although we may have, by and by, some very interesting disclosures and developemonts The newspaper movements, embracing, us they do, the struggles and rivalries of no less than three aspirants for the position of the government "organ," are, on the whole, the most piquant and attractive of the excitements now prevalent in the ritv of Washington. In accordance with intimations which we gave a considerable time since, a new paper, friendly to the administration, is about tube started, under the management of Messrs. Bullitt and Sargeant?the former from the South, and the hitter from the East. Both gentlemen irossess a great deal of talent, and have had more or less experience as newspaper writers. If the old connection between the government and the newspaper press at Washington, which has existed for the last thirty years, is to be continued in all the excellence and beauty of its fat jobs and bad printing, these gentlemen have, undoubtedly,as good a right as any competitors to enter the lists and struggle for the prize. Before General Taylor left New Orleans, there was an understanding, it is said, that Mr. Bullitt should proceed to Washington, for the purpose of establishing an "organ." This gentleman had enjoyed the confidence of the old hero, and it was supposed that he, of all others, could best announce and interpret the views of the President, through the medium of a newspaper at the seat of government. But on reaching Washington, it was found that thit venerable grandsires of the Intelligencer had no idea of being pushed aside. They had been in tribulation for a considerable length of time, and necessity had made them desperate. By prescriptive right, they claimed the honor and emoluments of the organship. Besides, they were sustained by a certain portion of the cabinet. In these circumstances, after a good deal of negotiation and manoeuvring, and attempts at concil ation, it was found that the only course left for Mr. Bullitt was, to organize a separate newspaper esta blishment. Thus, we now have a third cundidate for the post of " organ," and the contest promises to be quite lively and exciting. ( The imbecility and decrepitude of the old party organs at Washington?the Intelligencer and the Union?are the subject of general ridicule. Nothing could be more laughable than the warfare in which these Grandfather Whiteheads of the party press are now engaged. A few unimportant changes have been made in the inferior clerkships of the various departments, and a hundred small post offices over the land; and lo ! these aged drivellers fill their columns, day after day, with the most magniloquent tirades of vituperation, one assailing the administration, and the other defending it, in reference to matters of the most trivial interest, and about which the public does not care a straw. Some unfortunate John Jones is removed from the office of messenger to the War Department, and out comes old Mr. Ritchie, with three or four columns of furious indignation. Jones is a "martyr." Justice has been immolated in the person of Jones. The ejec tion of Jones has brought the country to the brink of destruction. Every drop of the hot Virginian blood which still circulates in the veins of the octogenarian patriot, boils with indignant reprobation of the atrocious slaughter of the excellent Jones. Next day the antediluvian Gales takes up the cudgels in defence of the administration, showing triumphantly, in two editorials of ten columns of extracts and comment, that the glorious principles of the whig party have been vindicated in the eyes of the wholu world, bv the crucifixion of the miserable democrat, Jones. Thus they whine, and storm, and rave, und drivel, ' From morn till noon, from noon till dewy eve." the luughing stock of the whole country; squabbling about some pultrv appointment to a clerkship, like two ill-bred brats, on the Five Points, fighting for an apple. "Infamous proscription!" shouts one. "Just retribution!" screams the other. "Fulse!" says old Ritchie. "You lie!" retorts his aged opponent. Such is Washington journalism?such the occupation and character of these "organs" of party! We have more than once taken occasion to advert to the contemptible character of Washington journalism, und our views are now reiterated by several of the newspapers of that very party to which the Washington Intelligencer itself belongs. In noticing the establishment the new whig paper ut the seat of government, the Courier and Enquirer of this city, with a great deal of sly sarcasm, twits its aged and decrepid coadjutor. The Courier speaks of the "amiable respectability" of the Intelligencer, but makes it out to be, after all, a superannuated, debilitated, and worthless concern. Even the benevolent and philanthropic Massa Greeley, whose pulse throbs w ith so intense a love for the whole human family, gives poor old Gales a severe thrust under the fifth rib, by quizzing hint about his " vivacity." Fie! Fie! Yet, these journals at the seat of the general government, the Intelligencer and the Union, imbecile, weak, silly and garrulous as they are now acknowledged to be, even by their own brethren, have received almost incredible sums, under the cloak of the public printing. The Intclligencerhna been, for thirty years, u stipendiary of the government. Millions of the public money have passed through its hands. The public printing has cost the country, under this corrupt system, four times the amount of the regular and equitable prices. We will be prepared in a few days, to present a statement, from official documents, of the expenditures for the public printing, which will startle and uvi iiau ail "jljMirillHHy 01 looking into tin? subject. The most flagitious corru|>tion will be thus unveiled. When the public learn the vast amounts of money which have been poured into the |>ockets of these voracious, servile journals at Washington, they will not be ustonish*d at the violence, virulence and shnmelessnesa of the contests which have taken place, under every administration, for the position of "organ" to the government. There is only one method of correcting this gross abuse, and putting an end for ever to this abominable system, by which the press has been corrupted ind degraded, and the public money ini'juitously squandered. A bureau of printing ought to be established, in connection with the Home department. All the printing of Congress, and of the several departments, should be executed in the public printing office, at the regular rates of compensation. The contract system has been tried and has failed. It is absolutely humiliating to observe the slovenly and wretched manner in which the printing of C ongress has been executed. There is not a jobprinter in any western frontier village that would not be ashamed to put such work out of his hands, as that which has been palmed off on the American Congress, byitsofticinl nrim**.. e. -- , .iui many years past. I*et a printing bureau be organized, and the woik will be performed in a respectable and economical manner. The journals and reportaof the debates of botli houses of Congress, should be issued regularly from this bureau, in a journal devoted exclusively to them and the advertisements of the departments. A somewhat similar arrangement has, for a length of time, existed in Paris. The Monitrwr publishes the proceedings of the French legislature in an official ami authorized form, and is paid by the government. Every other scheme of printing reform at Washington will fail. The establishment of a bureau of public printing is the only remedy for an evil whose magnitude and enormity are now becoming more and more apparent to the people of the country. As for government "organs," and administration " oigans," at Washington, they arc of Little value to any party. Mere party journalism in this country ia every day sinking into greater imbecility. It ia to those great centres o thought and action, the large cities of the Union?and first amongst them, our own mighty metropolis?that we are ts look for the journalism which sways the public mind. The election of General Taylor was a signal and striking evidence of the power of the independent press. It was then that, for the first time, that independent press operated in political affairs. It nominated General Taylor. It sustained him, in opposition to the whig newspaper | mystery 01 mat extraoruinary unncuity under which Mr. Forrest appears to labor with regard to Mr. Macrcady. The enigma is solved. Mr. Forrest's "last" is preceded by an anonymous nota addressed to him, giving him the first intimation of the theatrical intrigues in London and Mr. Macready's enmity, under the significant signature ol ***** ******_ Now what do these ominous asterisks mean 1 When we read over this note, before we got half through we became satisfied, from our knowledge of the mun, and the intrinsic evidence afforded by the note itself, that the writer was no less a personage than Ilenry Wikoff? the celebrated Chevalier WikofT?the notorious Wikoff?the WikofT who trotted Fanny Kll-ler throughout the United States, managed her little nffairs and appearances, and then got up a quarrel with her when the pair returned to London.? This note is WikofT all over. We have no doubt, indeed, that the whole of the prejudice which has been created in the mind of Mr. Forrest against Mr. Macready has been planted there at an early day by the officious conversations and flagrant misrepresentations of this same meddlesome Wikoff, who is a perfect ndept in the creation of difficulty among friends, and in multiplying quarrels, from which he takes care to keep himself free. He is, in truth, a perfect Marall. We happen to know something of this individual, even in connection with Mr. Macrcady. We know that he onec attempted to fawn on Mac ready, in order to be invited to the social circles of that gentleman. Failing in that, he became the foe of Mr. Macrcady, and fostered this difficulty between him and Mr. Forrest. We do not believe that Mr. Macready ever had anything to do with those criticisms in the Examiner, or any other paper, which provoked the ire of Mr. Forrest. Mr. Macready is a man too much taken up with his own affairs?too fond of his own fame?too vain of himself, if you please, to trouble himself about others as much as Mr. Forrest imagines. Enough on this point at present. We have no potatoes to plant: but as soon as Mr. Forrest has got through with his farming business, we will endeavor to explain to him in a most satisfactory manner how completely he has been duped in all this business by the writer of the anonymous note which he embodies in hts last epistle; and who, we nre perfectly satisfied, is Ilenry Wikoff. Will Mr. Forrest admit or deny this fact 1 Post Office Appointments.?During tno administration of Mr. Polk, there was no branch of the general government conducted with more looseness than the Post Office Department, under the direction of Cave Johnson. From the time when lie was appointed to the responsible situation of Postmaster (ieneral, until he delivered the keys of office to his successor, there was a succession of mail failures, of quarrels with contractors, and of complaints by the whole country. During that period, we alone received as many letters complaining of the non-receipt of the Herald by our subscribers, as would fill three or four large-sized trunks ; and we presume that many of ourcotemporaries can say the same. In fact, the Post Office became an instrument of annoyance and perpetua trouble to the public, rather than a benefit and advantage. It is ungenerous to kick the dead lion, and we would be sorry to be guilty of any such act. We would not refer to this subject now, when Cave Johnson is in retirement, but for the purj>ose of impressing on the administration of General Taylor, at a time when removals and appointments are taking place, the necessity of appointing none but sound, business, reliuble men, as deputy postmasters throughout the country. The character of all applicants for postmuaterships should be rigidly inquired into, and none should be appointed but such ns come within the rule laid down by General Taylor in his letters and inaugural address. We have no hesitation in saying that damage to the amount of millions of dollars has been inflicted on the people of the United States by the wretched management of the Post Office, under Cave Johnson, and that that officer exercised a potent influ ence in bringing Mr. Polk's administration into bad odor throughout the country. We exj?ect better things under the administration of (ieneral Taylor, and we feel confident that we will not be disappointed. Gamut.ino in New York.?The keeper of a swell gambling house in the Bowery has, we perreive, been arrested and held to bail in the sum of eight hundred dollars. Now, this is a very small affair, and we suppose the authorities will make a great effort to testify their feelings in favor of public morality, by suppressing this jietty place and convicting ita owner, while they do not or will not touch the large splendid nnd fashionable places of a similar character in Breadway and the streets leading into it, that arc frequented by the first opera-goers of the city Small rogues are caught and punished, while the great and fashionable onea escape press. It secured his election; and in that important rPHult were seen the first fruits of fifteen years' labor in the cause of the people?labor performed independent of all parties, and sustained by the spontaneous support of the great independent masses of the country. Politicians are now uwaking to a sense of the potency of this new agency of public intelligence and public virtue. The real " organs" of the government and institutions of the Unitad States, exist not at Washington, but are to be found in the unbought and unpurchaseable independent presses of the great cities of the Union. Fofuest's Foiiav upon the Macs.?We have been inundated with correspondence, grave and gay, serious and sarcastic, relative to the curious literary productions with which Mr. Forrest h is been recently electrifying or stultifying the public ? we hardly know which is the proper epithet to be used on the solemn occasivn. The following is the shortest, and we give it:? My Dkak Sip:?I am suro you are Terr obliging, and therefore feel confident you will publish thin note. Kvery few (lays, your always am using paper is crammed with the literary productions of Mr. Forrest, who, by his confession, is thus endeavoring "to define his owu position." Do, my dear Mr Deuuett, assure him the labor is superfluous, and will bo moro profitably employed on his "farm." He very clearly defined his position last autumn. at rhiladelphia. and there is no person having the slightest " connaiaaanet de maiiri," who. since the astonishing outbreak there, hesitates where to place him. He and his target have both given their sign, and by that sign will he judged. 1 am, nevertheless, astonished that you, who ordinarily understand the merits of a case so well, should persist, in connection with many of your fellow journalists, in calling Mr. Forrest's affair a quarrel. A quarjol is. in one respect, like a bargain?it takes two to make it?and it is as ridiculous to style this a controversy, ns it would be to place the angel and the sick man at the pool of Bethesda on a footing. The angel troubled the waters, but the sick man was healed thereby. This fact suggests a solution of the enigma that ao overtasks Mr. Forrest's brain. Ho cannot conceive why he should have been unfavorably received by the British eritics of the British stage, unless through the agency of sne whom he is pleased to call his rival. Now. the ill-success, the disease, lies in himself, and unless he laves in the agitated waters?that is, catches something of the fine tact, nice conception, and studied elegance of his and the drama's master-spirit?he may ecasuto wonder, if the discriminating do not. although the mass may, raise their hands as he passes by. is not this your opinion, Mr. Bennett? Do speak out. and oblige your present corrcspohdent. SO AND SO. We know a thing or two beyond even what our correspondent Mr. So-and-so seems to be acquainted with. On a second perusal of the last letter of Mr. Forrest?(which, by the by, is not to be the last, for as soon as he plants the early potatoes and puts his cabbages into the ground on his farm near the Gothic Castle on the North River, he in| tends to give another,)?we have fathomed the From the Island op Hatti and St. Dominoo.? There were two arrival* at this port, yesterday, fiom the island of Hayti: the brig Sarah Lewis, Capt.

The lower part of the stroot particularly, is more obstructed than any other in the city, and it is (he duty of the police to prevent every one from offending ngiuust the ordinance w liicli provides against such a nuisance. Let the matter be attended to at once, and let Broadway present an appearance during tho coming summer worthy of tho eity. Funeral oe the Late J. S. Wanmaker.?The funeral of the late John S.

A histery of the increments of this man may not be uninteresting to our readers. The individual alluded to whs arrested in the month of Decern 1st. 1K47. on a charge of the same character for which he lias been recently taken into custody, and after being examined in Williamsburg, where the offence was committed, allowed to go on bnil for his appearance at the I'ourt of Oyer and Terminer.

The city of St. Domingo was placed under martial law, about the 22d inst., and all the men of the city who were capable of bearing arms were mustered and inarched out, under their President, to meet the Haytien President Soloque, w ho, with his black forces, was supposed to be advancing towards the city. A battle took place on the 18th of March, which resulted disastrously to the Dominicans, they having lo6t a large number oi men (killed, wounded, and prisoners), and several pieces cf artillery?the towns of Las Matas and St. John falling into the hands of the llaytiens. The force of President Soloque was constantly increasing; a body of 300, from Jeremie, passed through Maragono on the 2d inst., on their way to Pott an Prince and head-quarters, while others were gathering from all quarters. A decisive battle was expected to take place soon ; and the chances of success appear to be in favor of the llaytiens. A flotilla, consisting of five war-vessels, with GOO troops on board, recently left St. Domingo for Azua, where it whs thought a severe battle would be foucht. The IT.

A Scene in the Mayor's Office.?At 3 o'clock, yesterday afternoon, quite an interesting little scene came o i lieforc his Honor the Mayor, in which the contending parties showed a strong array of witnesses on both sides. The complainant was a flushing looking woman, called Kate Ridgely, keeper of a fashionable mansion, at No. 7K Ruanc street. Kate complained to the Mayor that she had been much annoyed by two or three sporting individuals who visited her houso. and threatened to damage the furniture, and also alarmed the peace and quiet of her female boarders; und to substantiate this iurt, she exhibited to his Honor six very flue looking young women, decked out in the tip of the fa-liion, with silks, satins, and jewelry. These precious damsels were seated near the Mayor, to be eall-d upon in order to substantiate the accusation. On the other hand. Captain Rynders. w ho appeared as counsel for defendants. brought up an equal array of testimony to prove rjuite the reverse, if necessary. The Mayor, on hearing both sides of the story, concluded to hold the two defendants to bail in the sum of *100 each, to keep the peace for six months. This decision appeared te meet I he views of all parties, and the females, after chatting ? little with some of their old friends, left the oflice for juict home.

The stock market opened firm this morning, and before the close an improvement in the leading fancies was reamed. nnricm went up .'4 per rent ; L?ni; Islnnd, Canton C u., '4; Erie Railroad. 2 ; Pennsylvania 5's, All others closed at prices current yesterday. The sales were not large, nnd holders were by no means nnaious to get rid of their storks at present prices. An impression that a moderate speculative movement in the fancies is near at hand, is generally entertained; and. as money is getting easier, there is every probability of nn advance of several per rent l>< ing realised. The rise in Erie Railroad, new stock, U the result more of a temporary scarcity of shares in the street, than of any actual improvement of consequence, in the affairs or earnings of the company. The receipts since the first of April have b'en large, equal to the estimate; but had they been larger, It would not have warranted such a rapid rise as has been realised during the past two days. The upward movement in stocks generally has been slow, and the influence brought to brnr upon t rie i- purely of n local character, and will. In our opinion be but temporary.
