European Ntwi> We have not yet received any intelligence of the Arrival of the Canada at Halifax. Ttlui* XVI Vkt Dissolution of Parties In 1hc United Stktti, The recent elections of United States Senators hy the Legislatures of Missouri, Delaware, Mas sachusetts, and Rhode Island, and the complexion of affair* in the Legislatures which are about to elect Senators, particularly Ohio, New Jersey and Hew York, we looH upon >s so many premonitory symptoms of the breakin* up of the old mtional parties, bo long existing under the names of demo cratic and whig. Various causea combine to hast en this state of things : among others, the settle ment of the old party issues, and the new divi sions, north and south, east and west, growing out of the questions of slavery and the union of the States. The free soil question has caused the elec tion of a whig from the democratic State of Mis Mart, a democrat from whig Massachusetts, and has had its influence on the election of members of the Legislature in New Verk, Ohio, and New Jersey, which will probably have the effect of ahangmg the character of the representation in the United State* Senate from each of these States. Delaware and Rhode Island, which have so long keen represeated by whig* in the Senate, have mw each chosen a democratic Sena'or, but the result in both cases was effected by local ciuses, or dissentiens in the whig ranks in those States. We can perceive no causes now in existence which are likely to continue much longer the or ganisation of the old national parties of whig and democrats, and the contest j between them at Na tional, State and minor elections. There are no grea* questions of public polity now in agitation, or in progetss, of sufficient streugth to enable lead ing politicians to ke?p the people uividel into th* two great parties, as at present organized and known by their respective names. The old pirty machinery is ev dently worn eu?, and growing into disfavor with the people; it must, like broken crockery, be socn thrown aside. Office holders and office seekers will doubtless struggle to keep pony names and party organization for their ! own selfish purpose.-; and the prestige of the name of democracy may enable ptry leaders to perpetu ate the organization of the democratic party; as it is probable that in a republic like ours, that portion of the people holding the most radical views and I notions will cling to that popular designation. But there is no prospect, we repeat, of the contmu ince j of the old party organizations, r.or can they be j perpetuated by the revival of quest .<>ns of currency, Internal improvement, the tariff, or annexation of ?ew territory to tne United Sta'es. Let us lock at the present state of parties, and ?ee how rapidly the whig ?-arty is going to decay, notwithstanding us possets on for a brief period of the executive power of ' he Union The majori ties of the democntic party in both houses of the present Congress, will be largely increased, by the r?cent elections, in the next .Senate and House o' Representatives, notwithstanding there is no ques tion except that of a more protective tariff, which will probably divide member* on o d party ground* Of the Governors of the thirty-one States, omy seven are whigs, nz ?the execu tives of Vermont, Khoee Island, New York, Penn m Ivanis, Texas, and Flo ids, aad the acting Go vernor of Kentucky. The remaining twenty-four Governors of the S res are democrats, and this disproportion, it is more than probable, will be still greater as long as present party organizations are continued The Legislatures of five or six ef th* State* have a nonrnal whig majority, while th* others are either democratic.or the free soilers hold the balance of power between the old parties. la thi? forlorn rate of things, how, we ask, can the wbigs continue their present organization m the different States, w.th any hope of success, or nay prospect of advantage 1 T he democratic party, however, has its own share of troubles, and is dis tracted at the Sr rtnfhy free soil or anti V.avery agi tation, and at the South by the question of dis ?ai?n or others of local interest it is evident, | not withstanding, that it retains, as a party, much ?tore positive strength than that of the whig*, which will insure its nominal triumph until aew parties are formed, new usues raised, and new or ganizations take place. The whig party has now been in existence ah?ut eighteen years, having been organized soon after the seconl election of General Jackson, in ]Ki2 The supporters of that President claimed and assumed the name of democrats, and hts oppo nents at first called themselves national republi cans; but when joined by seceders from the ad ministration ranks, in I*}-! and I<14, they tn>k the name of whig* Thus the two great mtional ptrties which divided the country at the ac cessioa of Vsn Buren to th* presidency, in 1*557. were respectively known by their pre aent names of democrats and whig* With the latter several minor parties of more limited extent, ?r local in character, generally acted, and the greater portion of th? *? parties gradually became amalgamated ? it?, and formed part of the whig |s?r<y Jf'jih w?re the ant. -masons of the Middle and Lastern 8 ate?, the S?te rights men of the South, who diss,<; r.ve<j 0f 0f the ?r ts of General Jackson, and thot* supporters of Jack ?on in Tennessee, Georgia, aad other States, who | were opposed to Van Buren as his successor t omi aring the whig party and the term of its ' existence, ? ah that of the old f?d'rsl party, we ! find that the latter commenced it* career , after th? adoption of the constitution in IT^I, and continued to set a* a distinct pirty nut it the a<c>?. ?M>fi of Monroe to the Presidency, in I817, a period ?f about twenty-eight years; twelve of which yeans, under Washington and John Adams, it was in rower Thrown into the minority on the acces i ?ion of Jefferson, it wan constantly in opposition to ' tiie administration of that President, and tl at of hia aiccessor, Mr. Madison, bnt became ex met aa a national party noon after the terminatioa o* l.ie war w ith Great Br 'h id, iu 1<IV la some of the States the name wai kept up for a short period, and thirty-tour electoral votes were given to Kufus King, the federal candidate t< r I lentlrnt, agvast one hundred and eighty-three forJamea Monroe, the republican candidate in 1817. After a few let ble struggles, the name of federalist be.-ame t>o unpopular that it was abandoned during the administration of President Monroe, which was called " the era ot good feelings," although tir coafmeo his *i poii.tmenti to oi c ?, te iT-my, to men of his own party. It remains to be seen if a similar defttny (? that which attsude 1 the fed eralists does not now await the whigs, without , the odium of unpopularity which followed the former ; and whether a new era of good feelinga will not now, an in the days of Monroe, break up the democratic party, and bring about new organi zations. The Branch Mint in Nsw York.? We hope the House of Representatives will not be deceived by the clap- trap arguments of Mr. Chandler, and other delegates from Pennsylvania, in regard to the propriety ot establishing a orancli mint in New York. The Mint in Philadelphia cannot coin as rapidly as the wants ol this section of the coun ry demand. The excube given by Mr. Chandler is, that here'ofore there Las not been a sufficiency of scales, and, accordingly, the director went to work in a hurry when it was <x,>ec;ed the bill for es tablishing a mint in New York would come before I jhe House, ani ordered half a doz?n additional ! pairs of scales. This humbug is too traA'par* nt to ! succeed. It was a great mistake, in the first place, to have a mint in Philadelphia ; but we are willing to overlook tha', as the I iuladelptnans look upon it as a very great boon. W e call for a mint in New York, not as a boon from the genera! govern ment, but b-cause the wants ani necessities of the great metropolis of the New World dem>n 1 it. A mint may be a won ierful affair for Phi'a ielphia? for aa outskirt of a city? but New York is dif ferently sitia ed, and her requirements n -erf 8Uch an institution. L*t us have a mist her?, and we will coin son> t "?ing besides W'ashingtons and double eaj;'es, which count up so very quick. It is rather strange that the Philadelphia m nt works twice as fard when the New York m n: bill is before Congress as at aoy other time. The most exag^rrated statements, howtv.-r, do not show that we ought not to have a mint in this city. Coui>o Events Cast thkir S udowj Befoee. ?It ib n>t im^rohahle that there will be a union between the silver gr-*ys of the w hig party in this State, and the old hunkers of the democracy. Rhode Island, a bitter whig S ate, h is recently elected a democratic United States Senator. New Jersey, for a long time whig, has become democra tic, end is ahout t > elect a democn-t c Senator ; other States are on the fe.ice? hsif inclined to wbiggery, and ha'f-.to democracy. Where is the dividing line between the whig and democratic parties 7 All of the o'd issues have been disposed of. A [ortion of the whig party are in favor of in creasing the tariff of 184fi ; but there are many de mocrats whose vewi tend the atm* way. There is essentially no principle in issue between the two treat parties. What, t Vn, will be tl e consequence 1 A reconstruction of p>l.t cil jartiea, under different names, and opiostd to each other en different principles? ihj irost srcmceit of which will be freedom of the public ltnds. That question will no doubt eater la-gely i ito 'he next presidential election. The abo >u >a of al law* I jt the colla tion of debts will, m a'l pr>bibility, become a political q e?* on before miny yurs. We are certainly progresting at a rapid rate; but we must j take care that we do not " bust the biler." America?* Ociam Steamships. ? There are peti- j tions l>efore Congress, for the construction ol some eight or ten additional lines of steamships to ply between Asia and the United States, and between Europe and the UniteJ States. Those who live till A**o Domi at 1970 will see the United States the greatest naval as well as commercial power lhat ever ruled the world. It is our destiny; but to accomplish it, we must denounce all agitators and diaumonists, and all agitatien and disunion sen timents. What's w the Wi>d ! ?

In yesterday's Herald we noticed the su Iden death ?f tba mammoth boy. by tha name of Qeorge Robinett, weighing avar 400 pennds, who, far some weeks past, bad been on exhibition at tha North Amerloan Hotel corner of Bayard street and Bowery Coroner Geer was sailed to hold an Inquest on tba body; and, Irom the circumstance* attending the death of the deceased, tha Coroner lelt satisfied that some malpractice on the part of Dr K. J. Latham, of No. 0 Mott street, who was tha attending physician, was the immediate cause of the fatal result. The deceased, it seems, enjoyed good health, always had a good appetite, but an In satiable thirst, drinking almost daily from fire to t*ix galloas of water, and, to reduce the thirst, Dr. Latham undertook. Icr a fee of ft, ta reduce the required dtiak from six gallons to two. Tha treatment and medicine given by Or. Latham to the deceased will be seen by the following evidence, taken before the Coroner TESTIMOVT. Jacob H Tweedy sworn, says:? I have known the deceased for the last (even weeks, during which time be had been on exhibition ea;h day. anl always ap parently in good health; I know that deoeaied drank a great quantity of water each day; I have been in clined the deceased, for several years past, bad bean in the habit ot drinking great quantities of water, and was also a great eater, on last Tuesday deceased in formed me that he had engaged tha services of a phy sician. who had agreed, for the sum ot $6, to reduce his thirst from five gallons of water a day to two; on Wednesday 1 noticed the appearance ot his face; it was very red. the deceased said It was caused by the medicine he had taken on Tuesday, as It was Intended by the doctor to throw the Inflammation out; I felt alarmed, atid requested him to show me some of the medicine he had taken; he brought me a pitcher con taining tome tea, and (aid It was made from Barbary; I ordered him not to take any more, a?d asked him who prescribed for him; he then pointed te the west, towards Malt street; In a conversation I bad In tbe exhlbitiea room with James A. Graves, of No. 3u Bowery, on the ssme day (Wednesday) he said that Georg* (meaning the deoeased) wai sick, and would not be able to exhibit on that evening and was going to tak* an emetic; the deceased kept getting worse: on Friday afternoon I found him flighty, with a pulse up to laj to a miuute; I endeavored to ascer tain where his physician could be found, but could not; bis eyes were heavy, and he was drowsy; he seemed in pain, and pointed with his hand over the region of his stomach, and after towards his tem pi* s; he expressed a deslie to have his people sent for, and raid they could reach him in afew hours; bis fami ly reside in Indiana; 1 lound out the residence of Dr. K.J Latham, and sent for him about 10 o'clock on 1'riday night, and when he earn* I asked him what he had given the deceased, he told me be had admlnls teied fever powders - bloodroot. with other kinds ol mediclnts. composed said fever powders; he be bad also given bin an emetic, composed of lebilia, ipecac, and skunk cabbage 1 asked La tham by what authority ha psactlced medicine; and where Le obtained bli authority; he replied that was his b j- ness, 1 then said, "doctor, you must get a regular p ; ilslan with him. and attend to deceased," I then ask' Lim tago up stairs and seethe situation decease i ? as 1b- W? acsordlnglv wait ut> stairs and found d ared breathing verf short, an ' perspiring freely: cie doctor said, "there la a great change In him. i1j>? I law him last," be thought the room had been k- ft too warm; when deceased was asked where he fe;t t) ? pain, ha pointed as before, to his stomach and b>kc; while conversing with the doctor about the treat r ? tt. deceased se< med to desire that the doctor shou <l be turned Irom the room, the doctor then left, and t< turned shortly after with Dr.li.M Bweet, of No. W* Allen street; Dr Latham counted tbe pulse of deceased before he leit to go tor Br Bweet, and said It was about ninety; I>r. Bweet, wben he came, made an eflut to discover pulsation, but could not find any. I aeked Dr. Bweet what he thought of the case, and the doctor declined giving his opinion, although, atter wsrds. he said be thought deceased was dying: this was abent halt past 11 o'clock, a abort time after, 1 went Into the room and deceased was dead.

Vsriict accord ingly. Comrt or General Sen* Ion*. FEBRUARY TERM. To-day commences the February term of the Court of General Sessions, and It is to be hoped that, by aid of an arrangement made with the Oourt ef Oyer and Terminer, the business of the court may be concluded during the legal term. The judgea of the Oyer and Terminer have consented to try a number of cates which promised to take up ? good deal of time in the aeaHiona ; by meana of tbia arrangement the prison can be relieved and the calendar cleared. When application was first mad* to;the Legislature 'or the creation ef the office of City Judge it was con templated, by those who applied, to have two courts held, if necessary, at the same time ? In this and in no cther way can the business ef the sessions be despatch ed as fast as it accumulates. It Is hard for prisoners who may be iunocent to lie in bridewell throughout a whole term, and then learn that their cases hare not been reached, aad that they must await another term. A ease oocurred a short time ainoe, in which a poer la borer, with a wife and two children dependent on him fer support, was arrested and imprisoned for several weeks, and finally called to trial for assault and bat* tery. when, lo ! it appeared that the wrong man had been arrested ; the prisoner was entirely innocent, and the D 1st riot- Attorney absndoned the proseoution at once. The wrong in this instance, arose in the first place, in the grand jwy rocm, where recklessness and 'tupidlty must have combined, to allow the finding of a bill of indictment, and the evil was prolonged by the crowded prison list, which did not allow of so speedy a .disposition of oases as justice and policy demanded The truth is. we need another court room. It is not to be supposed that the same provision* and accommoda tions ior the transaction of the city's criminal busi ness, which aufflced thirty ye&ra ago, will be adequate to present demands. There is nothlug to prevent the Keeorder and City Judge each holding a court at the same time, or It there is any mere technical objection, the Legislature would no doubt obviate the difficulty at once, cp application being made to them by the city authorities. A great deal of time is taken up in the Sessions in the trial of very young criminals many of thein being mere beys Thr Chief of Police has reported, time af ter time, on the necessity of some stringent measure* to prevent juvenile vagraney ; grand juries have call ed the attention et the authorities to the subject, and ju(J<?s h?ve. in their charges, dwelt on the same topic, but as yet no active measures have been taken to break up the unheiy < r* animations which eii?t in se veral parts of the city It Is well known that several gangs of young ruffians exist, both in the upper and lower wards, regulaily organized, and ready for anr mischief that either profit or gratification Of their fiendish nalloe may prompt theni to They are to be found reaming about th*- city night and day flow they live is a mystery ; but live they do, and by some means, fair or foul, manage to keep themselves clad in comfortable garments W ben a member of one of these gangs finds himself in the clutches of the law, every effort la Bade to get him tree : but If all la un availing and he la obliged to stand nit trial, he Is not alone in his time et need . bis companions are in at tendam M by scores, and it is not unusual to see the prisoner conversing, with great sang /raid, from the dork with the spectators In the seats outside the rail ing It would not be difficult on these occasions, for the police to mark the companions cf the prtsonsr, so as to keep them under observation afterwards. This Is shameful and onght to meet with signal rebuke wherever such a state of things is known to exist. All that is within the province of the court, however, Is to see that the law is strictly administered, and in cases of eonvistion. to visit the ortenders with heavy penalties. Temporising will never do. The Baptismal Ceremony Yesterday. Ilstween twelve and one o'clock, yesterday, the Rev. William Bradley, Baptist minister, performed the ceremony of beptislng three young ladies in the North river, according to the rites of his chureh. There was a considerable number of persons attracted to the scene, thoog h it la by no means a novel one . as it Is performed at the same pla?e nearly every Sunday The weather was bleak and cold. It having snowed thrcnghout the night, and the snow continued to desosnd rapidly during the performance of the bap tism. The river was thlokly froien and the ice was broken on the water at the foot of Thirtieth strsst, but the place not being found to answsr the required pur pose, the party repaired to the adjacent block? Twenty ninth street? whsre the lee was also broken by gen tlemen using a large ax* and pleoes of timber. When the Ice was smashed Into small pieces, the reverend gentleman who officiated walked Into the river till he came to the depth of his waist, he then returned to the water'a edge, and announced that the baptismal eeremony was about to be commeneed, and be called upoa all present to witness It with becoming decorum lie said he had heard two young men con versing thst merning oa his return from a previous baptism One said t(> the ether that he should not like to undergo the ceremony, particularly this cold wea ther; but he, (Mr llradley) would tell them, that to a per?"U who bed tbe love of Uod. it was nothing; cr, rather he should say It was glorious and broaght with It a satulaetlon and a pleasure, For hla^elf. he would o? satisfied to go Into the water to b?pti*e mem bers of the church every day? even the col Jest in the year After some further remarks, a prayer was offered up. and a youni la4y. apparently about twenty years of age attired la a white drees, sad without a bonoet. approached the river, where abe was met by Mr Brad ley. who conducted ber to the depth of water to which he bad before gone, the bystaaders and the clergy m?e chanting a hymn Having arrived at a suit, lent depth Mr Bradley addressed the young Inly say to* "upon a profession of thy faith, tay dear sinter an 1 in obedience to the'ireat Head of the Church I beetle t bee la tbe nam* of the Father, the Son and tbe Il<>ly Spirit,'' whereupon the Reverend gentleman immersed the young lady In the water, laying b-r cn her back, and completely covering her h??
