The chamber i Of the Conrt of General Sessions was filled with anxious officials and others intensely cartons to witness the developemente. In the course of the afternoon the Grand Jury entered the conrt room, and, after the usual formalities, delivered to the court a paper, which set forth that knowledge had come to the jnry of corruption in several of the heads of departments sufficient to jus tify the presentment of the Street Com missioner, the Collector of Taxes, the City Inspector, the Commissioner of Repairs and Snpplies, and the Commissioner of Streets and Lamps. Recorder Smith, however, declined to receive the present-, ments, or allow them to be s-ead, on-the ground that their publicity might prejudice the pnblic mind, and thereby render it impossible to find hereafter an im partial jury to try the cases. After some conversa tion between the Recorder and the foreman of the jury, the papers were returned to the latter, and by him handed to the clerk, with directions to pass them over to the District Attorney. It remains to be seen what disposition that officer will make of the documents. A full report of the proceedings may be fonnd on the first page of to-day's paper. The silver grey whigs of Albany have publicly re pudiated the action of the late fusion State conven tions, and heartily approve and respond to the call for a State convention of national whigs, to be held in thie city on Tuesday next. Private letters received from Paris by the last Btcamer, state that Minister Mason's health was much worse, he being so feeble as to require to be propped up when sitting at table. Our correspondent in San Domingo, writing on the 11th of-September, states that a tremendous hur ricane was experienced there, which blew down nearly onertlurd of the houses of the city,tore up an immense number of cocoanut and other trees and almost,entirely destroyed the growing crops. Several merchant vessels were injHred, and two men of-war shipr, wrecked. Owing to the loss of the crops, the poor people were plunged into great mise ry; but the government was taking means to alle viate it. General Cazneau's diplomatic failure, the non-enforcement of the Monroe doctrine by onr go vernment, and the official assumption of the Consuls of England and France, had caused the people to Jhiuk that the rulers of the United States were cither very weak or very mercenary. We have some additional news from Mexico. The election of Alvarez to the Presidency ia confirmed. It is reported that San Lnis Potosi had been captured by the revolutionists after a desperate aud prolonged battle. Vadnurri had issued a sort of manifesto, defining his views and intentions,in which he warm ly disclaims being an annexationist. i-ate news from Texas announces the election of Ward (dem.) to Congress from the Second district. The trouble with the Mexicans and Indians along the Rio Grande continued, and there were rumors that large numbers of them had crossed to the Texas aide of the river. The citizens o" San Antonio had resolved to raise one thousand men for immediate servic e against the marauders. The examination of the parties arrested at the hall of the tree love brotlierhood commenced before Justice Osborne yesterday. We give a report else where. Mr. Brisbane was not present. Wc continue to-do y the publication of the pro ceedings of the cou.t martial in the case of Lieut. Haldemau. Counsel for the accused yesterday sub mitted their defence. It was very lengthy, compre hending a rigid review of the voluminous testimony offered in the case. The charges, with the several specifications included under each head, were taken up ar.d rt*j lied to trriatim, and a full acquittal by the court .tsked upon them all. Ob Monday the Judge Advocate will make his reply. According to the official report of the City In spector there wet e 341 deaths in this city during the past w?i , namely, 73 men, 53 women, 126 boys and flu girbeing a decrease oi 45 on the mor tality of the w >ek previous.

The Projected Marriage of Prince Frederick William of Praaela to Victoria Adelaide of England. The view we presented a few days ago of the designs of Louis Napoleon, and the scope of his policy, in connection with the re-estab lishment of the Bonaparte dynasty is being more rapidly verified than wc had anticipated. Tbe ostentatious announcement of the Court of Berlin, some weeks since of the intended betrethel of its presumptive Crown Prinoe to Victoria Adelaide. has stirred up all the fire j of our trans-attantic neighbors. Perhaps in the present complications of Eu ropean politics it would l?e impossible to con ceive of a measure more utterly at war with the settled policy of the Western alliance, and more dangerous to its stability and its future harmonious operations, tban the projected alli ance of the young Prince of Prussia with the eldest daughter of the reigning Queen of Eng land. "We give place, in another column, to an article on the subject from the Londou Timet, which evinces a bitterness and an utter hostility to the measure?a fined determination to prevent its consummation, and a gcod faith to France, which clearly enough show that it will not be effected without a violent struggle. ?Tbc truth is that the alliance of England and France was absolute and complete in its terms and conditions. It was more than an alliance : it was a cordial union of the two Powers?a marriage?not merely a political conjugal, but a political conjugial compact. It ' rests upon the bases of the re-establishment of the Napoleonic dynasty; andthe union of the heir to tbe throne of England to the heir pre sumptive of the throne of Prussia would be a violation of its covenants and utterly subver sive of Its purposes. It is manifest that it cannot take place; and to prevent it, the power thatput Napoleon upon the Jbrone, and that which sustains the present syrifem in Great Britain, will be brought to bear against it?the popular judgment. It must not be forgotten that in Germany, more than anywhere else in Europe, the people have come to regard themcelves as the right ful governors of their States. They have built up a dynasty of their own, in the expansion of the human mind, in the diffusion of knowledge, and they exercise to-day more power than their king. The Prussian government is a tenant, aud not a landlord?it occupies the estates of the kingdom by sufferance. It derives its sole authority from the sympathy and the interest of its powerful imperial neighbors, and it will topple and fall when they withdraw their aid, as they will the moment it is for their benefit to do so. There is, then, but one point to be gained by an alliance with Prussia, and that is the certain enmity of France, and the almost certain contempt, of both the British and Prussian people. The popular mind of that kingdom, with the endorsement which the Western alliance has made of revolutionary action In France, gives assurance of greater permanence as a governing power than is found in the estates of the young Prince, who seumH to he seeking in advance an asylum .under the British constitution, and as a mem ber of its royal family. There would be just as much propriety in a union between the Co burgs and a son of the President of the United States, as in the marriage of the Princess Royal with the decaying house of Ilohenzollern. The integrity of the friendship between the Paris and London Cabinets will now be put to the severest test. We entertain no doubt of the triumph of Napoleon in this matter, as in othWs. lie is the very heart and lungs?the soul and the body?the centre and circum fereuoe of government in Western Europe. Ilis armies have conquered, and his edicts have rewarded. His voice is potential?his will is law. England not less than Russia lias surrendered to him. AtSebastopolhe avenged the downfall and imprisonment of the great founder of his dynasty at a single blow. He has won renown by the sagacity of his move ments. and, above all, he has won the heart of the British nation. Whatever we may think of his government, of his ambitious purposes, of the eiTects of Hie rule upon the condition of the human family, it would be tolly to deny either his ability or bis power. In the re-ar rangement ol Europe, beyond all question he is the moving spirit; and in this view, he is practically the director of the British govern ment and people. Now the projected betrothal ol Frederick William, of Prussia, with the Coburg family, is u measure looking to the pacification of the British people with both Prussia and Russia ; it is a projected family alliance, in fact, between England, Prussia, Austria and Russia?an alliance utterly an tngonistic to the Napoleonic dynasty?at war with the present policy of Western Europe, and which, when consummated, must inevita bly diivo the French Emperor into an attitude of hostility to the London Cabinet, while it will leave him on terms of cordial friendship with the British nation. Buch a movement, then, regarded with reference to its effects upon the presxnt state of political relation! between France and England, is wholly im possible. Perhaps the people of the latter kingdom have the leact cause, anl the least disposition, to disturb their reigning family, but it is questionable if the consummation of the marriage between the Prussian Prince and u/nl the Princess Royal would not end in the expulsion of the Coburge from England. Let us rettlw for a moment from these re pulsive reflections to the actual condition of things?to the alliance Itetween the two great .States cf the Vies', to their glorious victories in the field, to th?ut cordial inter-congratula tions, to the special care everywhere exhibit ted to equalize their it onors. and to their ia seperable union on grounds of absolute neces city Tit ' Belt, end -co if we do not find tncre cwnae to believe l!mt tin h<?ir prcsnmptive to tba throne of France, Prisce Napohion Bona parte, will ultimately lead to the altar the proudest princess in the world, than that she will I e transferred to the protection of a dynasty which in likely to crumble to the i^uat l?y the merest shock of one of those politii *?! earthquakes that may now be set down a* ihe' inevitable law of Northern Europe. The question for practical solution is wheth er the Homparto* shall re-establish their dy nasty whether it shall be extended to Naples, to Rome an/1 to Spa'n?or not. (t Is the old order asralnst the new order, the old system of divine tenures cguinit the new Napoleonic ?ystem ot popular tenures of Imperial estates ? a trial between the vitror of youth and the decrepitude or ape? and it is a little remarka ble that the test is to be made on an issue In volving the possible sn rfflce of one of the most beautiful and accomplished vnung ladies of England, on the altar of political necessity. Newspaper Correspondents?Tbk London Times and the New York Hkraad?Norfolk and tub Crimea.?We do not think that news paper readers generally give sufficient credit to newspaper correspondents. Recently, dur ing the pestilence at Norfolk, the Herald was enabled to give reliable letters almost daily, containing the most important intelligence in relation to the progress of the fever, the lzames of its victims and the wants of the sur vivors. We employed four or five correspon dents at Nexfolk, two of whom were removed by death. In one case the widow of our cor respondent took up the pen bravely in his stead and discharged the duties of her late husband with the most commendable fidelity. The thanks of our readers and of ourselves are especially due to this heroic woman and to her coadjutors. Theirs was no holiday task. They described no gallant actions in the fiokl, no brave shows, no splendid processions, no joyons gatherings, no soul-stirring efforts of oratory. They could not enjoy any of the poetry of existence in which even the newopa per correspondent may sometimes indulge? they could only recount the terrible story of disease, suffering and death. Their steps tended toward crowded hospitals and over flowing cemeteries. They saw only misery and desolation in every home?the grass grow ing under their feet and the mourners in the streets. They hourly expected the dread mo ment when the plague would claim them for its victims, and when they Bbould be summon ed to exchange the pen for the shroud. Those who fell nobly at their posts are beyond world ly regard or reward. To those who remain we can only offer our heartfelt thanks. The heroism displayed by our correspon dents at Norfolk is not without its parallel. Ever since the Herald -was established we have had an extensive corps of correspond ents at house and abroad. In the Mexican war we had a well organized bureau, the members of which followed our vic torious army step by step. Some of them participated in those actions whioh shed such lustre upon our arms?all of them were prompt, accurate, faithful and truthful in chrouicling the "battles, sieges, fortunes that have passed." In many instances the news papers published accounts of the important battles before the despatches of the com maudcr-in-cbicf had reached the War Depart ment, and the Senators of the United States first read the treaty of peace in the columns of the Herald. The rise and progress of the I gold fever in California were duly described by the same unseen but faithful Lauds, and many a poor emigrant has been saved from the clutches of swindlers by a few pithy lines from a Herald correspondent. At the present moment we have a correspondent in the camp of the liberating army in Northern Mexico, another in Nicaragua, another in Venezuela, two in Havana, and, in fact, wherever there is any war, any revolution, either expected or in progress, any danger, any peril?the ac counts of which would be interesting or im portant to the public?there may be found a Herald correspondent. The files of this jour nal will bear us out in the assertion, and it can be made with truth by no other newspaper ex cept the London Times. The moveable corres pondents of the last, named journal have done the world essential service. They are the true heroes of the war. Officers, according to eti quette, cannot write for the press what tran spires in the camp or in the field. IIow ex ceedingly valuable, then, must it be to the public to have men who will give faithful, graphic and particular accounts of all that transpires, and how the historian of the next century will drink in the contents of the Times Crimean letters. The reading public enjoy the letters, but they never think of the perils and sufferings of the writer. They never think that this correspondent suffered all the horrors which he describes so well?that he calmly made notes undeT the fire of the enemy?and that he received even less consideration than the private soldier, whose wrongs he so eloquently depicts. Yet such is the fact. One of the Times correspon dents fell ill in that very camp before Sebas topol, and the British officers, with a brutality only equalled by their shameful incapacity as soldiers, refused to admit him Into their hob pitals; he was carried over the hills under a burning sun, and died that night. Such is the fate a newspaper correspondent may expect. We claim for our Norfolk and Mexican cor respondents as much credit as is given to the Times writers in the Crimea, and the public will freely accord it. Newspaper correspondents, both sedeutary and moveable, have great influence and equally great responsibilities. They should be able, careful and discreet. They should institute earnest inquiry after facte, and then make them as agreeable in relation and description as the subject will bear. Our correspondence in Europe and Asia is extensive, interesting and ?valuable. On this continent wo have resident writers at every important point, and they arc re-inforccd by special commissioners upon emergent occasions. Many of our letter? are sent by telegraph, and we frequently re ceive a column or more of important intelli gence from Washington, Albany. Philadelphia, Boston and other places, over the wires. This news is gathered by our special correspondents and is published in New York before the jour nals in the city fronf whence it comes have hcurd of it. This fenture in a great journal is exceedingly expensive, but we think it pays We shall hereafter make it still more complete extensive, correct and valuable, and thu- ap proximate the realization of our intention, winch is that the Herald shall be a daily daguerreotype of all important events in every part of the world. I'MOHTFl'l. MtHniR AND SfK IDE BY A Ll'NATiC Apoutiomst.?Wo publish to-day, from the Richmond (Va.) Whig, the detail* of a shocking murder and suicide committed in that city by a lunatic abolitionist. We can account for these atrocities upon no other ground t^an the insanity of the (lend commit ting tV'in. His insanity, however, may be /*!rly charged to the pestilent doctrines incul , 'alal l y ?tr Northern abolition agitators and th yif orgara-.

The Latest News from Kossuth and Maz zini.?Those pleusant fellows, Messieurs Kos suth, (Hungarian) Mazzani, (Italian) and Rollin (Frenchman) have perpetrated another of their pleasant literary efl'orts. It is a manifesto addressed to the republicans of Etrope, and the point of it is that Sebas topol, having been taken, Russia cannot re cede, but that war will be indefinitely pro longed, and that the present is the proper time for a revolution in France and Italy. Hungary being overshadowed by the Austrian army, can take only the second rank in the army of freedom. Now M. Kossuth writes too mudi. He stultifies himself. Before Se bastopd fell he told the Allies that it would never be taken, and that therefore the war wouM be "prolonged indefinitely." Now, when bis prophecies have all proved falla cious, he argues from different premises and arrives at the same conclusions. If peace were declared to-morrow, he would have an other manifesto, and would prove just as con clusively that the millenium had arrived. He must keep his name before the people, whether he sajs anything sensible or not. But the re publicans in Europe have already ascertained that the " man of the second of December" cannot fee annihilated by paper bullets, and that the manifestos of Messrs. Kossuth, Maz zini and Rollin are only very nicely written, harmless and amusing documents. Yorxa Africa in Convention.?We give to day a detailed report of the "National Con vention of Colored Americans," held at Phila delphia last week. The free colored men in the North have come out now upon their own platform, and have shaken off' the specu lating abolitionists and all the other politi cians who have been humbugging them for the last twenty years. They met in Philadelphia, and did pretty well, en .the whole. Fred. Douglass was the leading spirit, and he made a tremendous defence of woman's rights, on the question whether or not a colored lady from Canada should be admitted as a delegate. Douglass got her in, with all the privileges. The question of politics was not officially touched, and nothing was said about coloniza tion, which, as these men will find out even tually, is the only hope for the negro, bond or free. Our report includes some interesting statistics in relation to free negro labor throughout the country, and it seems to us they prove very clearly tha(, the race never can sus tain itself in competition with Anglo-Saxon en terprise. Liberia is the only place for Young Africa. What does George Downing say now? New Yokk Medical Colleges.?We publish this morning abstracts of three introduc tory lectures, or addresses, delivered within the past week in as many medical colleges in this city. The fact is remarkable, as tending to show the position which this metropolis is assuming in regard to institutions of scientific learning. Some years ago medical students would not have been deemed to have com pleted thqir studies, or to have acquired a respectable knowledge of their profession, if they did not do sain the .French or English capital. Now, all that is changed, or is fast changing. New York possesses medical col leges conducted with as much ability as any in the world; and from all parts of the United States, South America and the Antilles, stu dents flock here to take out their degrees New York has in that regard assumed to this continent the relation which Paris occupies to the old; and this is one of the very gratifying evidences of the progress which this young re public has made and is making in scientific at tainments, as in all other branches of human knowledge. Tm Joseph Walker Again?When shall we get rid of this Ship f?We learn that Mr. Jones and his men suc ceeded In raising the ship and pumping her out on Friday last, but owing to some doubt in regard to the strength of one of the trusses, they let her &ink again. Yesterday they had a steam tug boat in readiness to tow her out of the slip, and raised her once more for this purpose, when three or four police officers came down with a writ from an old contractor, charging the Jones party with steal ing a fifty dollar chain cable, and compelled the whole squad to march to the Tombs. The Joseph Walker had, oi course, to be sunk again; but we suppose that on Mon dr.y she will again be pumped ont, floated and towed away. Well, the public will bo heartily glad to got rid of her and the hue and cry that has been raised aboat her. The Jones ]*rty wore discharged on their own recog nizances, and the chain cable sent to the Chief of Police.

One of the largest audiences drawn to Metropolitan theatre since the opening of the eeason was that which aseem bled last night to assist et its close, fhe rob ef Camille, in the trsgedy of "l-es Horaces," was that selected by Barbel to make her coupe in. We do not care to say now how often and with what effect she has personated this character since her advent on our stage; but we tbink we may with safety say that the last night outshone all her previous efforts therein.

REPORTED RESIGNATION OP DON PI ATP?RESIGNA TION OF BBICk GEN. HITCHCOCK?CRITICAL ILL NESS OF JOHN Y. MASON?PROCEEDINGS OP THE COURT OF CLAIMS?IMPORTANT DECISION?THE JAPANESE INTERPRETATION OF PERRy'S TREATY ENDORSED BY OUR GOVERNMENT, ETC., ETC. Washington, Oct. 20,1855. There is a good deal of excitement here to-day with reference to what disposition is to be made of the three millions due to Mexico. Mr. Marcy bus had it under consideration for some dayH, and has finally r for red it to a cabinet council. The old premier has intimated, I un derstand, to those new Yorkers who have been here, and who are largely interested, that he would recognize the assignments which they hold from Santa Anna; but he having, now submitted it to the Cabinet, they suspect him of doable dealing, and that the move Is made for the purpose of killing it, as it is known that a majority of the Cabinet are in favor of paying the monoy to the existing government of Mexico. The State Department lias received no -intelligence of the resignation of Don i'iatt, Secretary of Legation at Paris, but it is believed here in nfficifl circles that some thing of the kind will be received by the next steamer from Europe. Brigadier General Hitchcock having tendered the resig nation of his commission in tne army, it has been accept ed by the President, to take effect on the 18th Inst. Private letters from Paris received by the last steamer, represent the physical condition of Mr. Mason, our Minis ter to France, to be extremely critical. In the Court of Claims, this morning, J udge Gilchrist delivered the opinion of the Court in the case of David Myerie. The Court say:? We cannot say that the facts set forth in the petition do not furnish any ground for rcliet. The claim must depend on the contract shown by the proof, and the power of the Secretary to make it. We shall therefore autho rize testimony to be taken in the case. We do not, of course, mean to express any opinion upon the merits of the claim. The Court decide, also, that under the fifth clause jf the first section of the act of CnngTORs, they have jurisdiction of all cases whatever which may be preferred to them by either House of Congress, without regard to the subject matter of the claim. No arguments were heard to-day. The case of John C. Hale, claiming a patent for the land on which are situ ated the celebrated Hot Springs of Arkansas, valued at one hundred thousand dollars, is set down for Mondfty. Hon. F. P. Stanton is attorney for the claimant. The celebrated case of the brig General Armstrong is set down for Monday week. Hon. P. l'hilllps, of Mobile, for the claimants. Jacob Barker, Esq., of New York, was sworn in as an attorney. The administration fully endorses the Japanese inter pretation of Commodore Perry's trea'y, and say that a commercial treaty was never contemplated by either gov ernment. It was only an initiatory step towards such a treaty, and a great national trluu^h at that. The United States Consul at I'ioMu will receive a com plimentary .testimonial from the department, for bis watshfulne-s over American interests in that quarter. ? Secretary Dobbin seems considerably worriel by the news that l.ient. Rolando was engaged in a desperate con flict with Chinese pirates at the very time that an impar tial Naval Board here was trying him on the charge of cowardice and drunkenness.
