S. We have reason tube satisfied with the effect of oursrticleof last October, on the Newspa|>erd of the Umted States. It has been, in the first place, understood by those whom it concerned, and com plimented with that calm indifference and philosophic contempt, which were lavished by Sheridan's hero on the villainous, licentious, abominable, infernal Ktview, that had been written upon him. In other quarters, it has been met with guarded doubts, with well meant remonstrance, with timid comparisons and questionings, and with agreement founded on an honest examination of the facts and reasons that we offered. In all it has involved of necessity, more or less, a discussion of the nuisance it exposed This is the main advantage. And for this we return to a subject, only more important than hateful, since it forces us, whatever the tone we adopt, to admit at any rate the continued existence of a power, enorm?us in nropoition to the absence of every quality wnicn inspires respect. Power, founded on the junction of literary incompetency, with moral indecency, and deriving its means o support Irom nothinir save scandal, slander, wretched ribaldry, and ruffianly abuse, is the humiliating antagonist against which we enter the field. You cannot afford, with justice to all that is at stake, to despise such an atagonist; for you cannot treat with the same contempt the masses who listen to him, and of whose blind lusts and ignorance his influence is composed. You may tear to nieces and trample under foot a single number of the 'New York Herald,'or the 'New York Courier and Enquirer,' but at that very instant, there are tens of ui(iu?a.iiiis muling mm very nuuiDer oi euner journal, and deriving from it all the satisfaction which large claises of men will never cease to take, in the gratification ol their ignorance or of their evil | aasions. "Does any well-educated man in America read these papers with respect," is the strange question of the "Edinburgh Review." With respect! Why, what has resect to do with it 1 Does any welleducated man enter a gambling house, or a brothel, or any other scene of vice, with respect for the inmates he looks to find there 1 Far from it. It is more than probable, if he has any feeling at all, that he hates himself for going; but he goes: and the oftener he goes, we will answer for it, the less he finds it necessary to trouble his head with notions of "respect" of any kind. And this is what we charge upon these newspapers, as not the least frightful mischief that is in them. They level, to an undistinguishable mass, the educated, the ignorant, and the base. They drive into one had direction all the forces of society, which, if personal liberty is to be preserved, or the rights of individual thought and opinion resected, ought to be engaged in counteracting each other. Democracy is little understood, if this is supposed to be democracy. Itisa slate of equal and universal slavery : the tyranny to which all are subject, being that of a press the most infamous on earth. To pretend that such a condition of things must flow as a matter o{ course from the institutions of america, can blind only the most thoughtless The "Times" argues ably for all its opinions, but omits an important element in the consideration of this. The government and society of America cannot be assumed to have as yet taken permanent shape. On the great experiment which is going forward there?i he right of anyone broadly and finally to pronounce, is far from having yet begun. In the present stage of it, we must still maintain, the character of the people is more distiuctly at stake than the character oi the institutions No'hing seems so dangerous as to palliate the social delinquencies of America, on the ground of political experiment, unless it is the danger of making forms of government ot any kind responsible lor what lies in a direction too deep to be amenable to them. Government in that sense is mach to be considered, but self-government, in every form of society, is also worth considering; since without it, the other, though cast in the perfect mould of absolute wisdom, will avail surprisingly little. The existing constitution of America has not yet outlived the test ol fifty years, and for every vice and failing oil the peo, le we are asked to make this fraction ol ime acc< untable! Will those who require us to do so, point nut the example in history of a political constitution framed ta this rapid ex-cathdra fashion, and turning out o' greater account than the paper it was wriuen On? Will they furnish us an example of constiiu'ion or form of government of any kind whatsoever,which had within it an element of permanence?to which the habi's, the duties, the rights, the capabilities of the people governed, had in any manner found it possible to accommodate themselves?and which has not been in every case the work of time, and, in a still greater and more important degree, the work of the people themselves 1 Admitting here, then, that the final issue still waits to be develop- d by time, it is on the latter ground we for the present take our stand. We say that with no efhm to check the influences which are now running riot in America, the chances of that great society being ultimately gathered together under any one set ot political institutions, we care not of what descri' lion, are extremely remote and problematical. Why, if they had wars upon their hands, if they had threatening and troublesome neighbors, nay, it th -y had their millions of ill-governed, starving poor, clamoring for instruction and for bread, we do believe that their chances of existence as one people would be greater than they now are. Frightful as we must think the-e penaltiesnnd vicesfrom which older countries sutler, at the least some centre of resistance would of necessity evolve itself iroin them, to what now overrides the land?crushing all that is of elevating tendency, everywhere establishing like narrow prejudices and foul passions, mak ing one mean view and example of mankind universal and predominant, and silencing an indepen dent thought wherever it would make itself known. No government, no society, can long exist with such a power as this abroad, subject to no control. We are quite prepared to have it said that we exaggerate : we say what we believe to be true. In remark on our so-called exaggeration, the " Westminster Review" waives any advantage derivable from its exposure, and asserts, that even taking it as a fair description of the newspaper press of America, the case attempted to be set up signally fails. And why 1 " We say," says the " Westmin eter Review," " that the moral tone of the American press is ttof to low as that of the newspaper stamped press of our own country, with ho.iorable exceptions." The reviewer is at pains to repeat the assertion, and to have us understand thnt it is made ' deliberately." He adds that he has "carefully" examined a file of the " New York Herald," the paper especially referred to as the worst in the United States, nnd found it, "bad as it is, freer from gross obscenities and ribald jests than either the ? , the , or the , pa;**rs circulated extensively here amon^ the higher classes; and its personal abuse of political opponents not greater than that of almost any one of our Tory journals." We do not gi e the names of the papers thus specially put forward, because the third, though of political opinions with which we cannot sympathize, is conducted with perfect decency and honor, and is on no pretence, save of a most reckless disregard of truth, to b? classed with that literature of the "gambling house and t c- brothel" which we did not fail to denounce when we entered first upon this subject, and of which the other two journals named are the admitted representatives. It is import-mt In n.itipo thnt wKitl U7 P miluf O .* 11 fhp rlpaian /?f in/)ia criminatelv bringing wiihin the same degradation and reproach every class of English periodical publication, is very "deliberately" pursued by the Westminster Review. Gently passing the " New York Herald" as " with all iis taults" having "early commercial intelligence," and by its circulation "the best advertising medium in the United States" (pretences we had already noticed as those by which decent American citizens attempted to justify to themselves the admission ol the foul thing within their houses,) the reviewer proceeds to quote the case of Lady Flora Hastings ; a more recent falsehood against another of the maids ot honor; some scurrilities in the report of a meeting on the subject ol Mies Martineau's refusal ol a pension ; and an alleged libel against Mr. Gobden. " la the American press," he then asks ' aitme to bear the. disgrace of giving utterance to vile slanders, when it is merely copying the example of the prints of ihe moiher country f A twelvemonth nas not elapsed," he continues, ' since two nrwipucer*existed, the avowed object ol which was lotrnrlr in hbtt. * * The papers alluded to are now happily extinct, but they existed for many months, and large sums were realized by the wretchesaaeoctated in this infamous speculation." Our " severe cen IRK I MORNING, MAY 23, 184 sure" against the President of the United States for the disgrace of connecting the government at Washington with the inlaniv of the "New York Herald," is the reviewer's closing subject of remark. "Governor Tyler," he coolly suggests, " would probably explain l?y stating that it was Ins duty not to give the advertisements to |Mpera which had only u compa rative small circulation," and the matter is then finally dismissed in these extremely " knowing" paragraphs:? " But admitting (hat the real object was that of a simple bribe, we muat still marvel at the aatunuhmeut of the "Foreign Quarterly," sreiug that the practice it one which in the mother country, and probably in every atate of Europe, ii about ai old as the prt'M itaep. la the writer 10 innocent aa to auppo'e that the mot meg and evening papera which are known aa miniaterial jaurnala aapport the government of the day only from motivea of the pureat patriotism, and that in return for thit devoitdurta there are noconai orations in the shape of early and exclusive information, official announcements, or more tangible aodea of payment for tkit dtvoltdnut We have given this outline of the defence of the American press and its upholders by their hardiest advocated, because it comprises matter which throughout the course of our inrsent article, it will be instructive to keep in view. The writers's purpose cannot be mistaken. It is to involve in the same disgrace the most respectable of the Tory journals of the metropolis, and the literature we for merly classed us but |.art of its social dregs and moral filth. It is to convey the impression that the "moral tone" of the "jTimes" and the " Standard" is in point of fact on no higher level than that of two scandalous journals still existing, and two still worse, which are extinct The last two are not named, but proceedings at police offices have forcd their names on respectable men. and we understand ihe review er's allusion. It conveys whnt is not ihe fact. They were not "newspapers." They were prints of the lowest price, unstamped, indecently illustrated, and filled with the sayings and doings of shameless and abandoned profligates Why does the Westminister Reviewer thus reckless y class these foul publications with the great body of English newspapers I Why does he leave his readers to imagine that such journals as the "Times" had countenanced or in any way suffered to appear in their colunins, the infamous slanders of which he makes special mention! Why, with the stamp returns at hand, does he talk of the extensive circulation ol papers, of which the miserable sale is as notorious as the miserable and mean contents 1 Because he is defending the American Press. It is worth remark perhaps, that among the earlier articles of the same number of the " Westminster Review," there was one by a particularly enthusiastic writer, who said a number of fine and flatter ing things about the English press, and put forth nothing but the very grandest claims in its behalf.? What his friend and colleague was saying in the same instant of time, the reader has observed. The delicate monster with two voices was probably never plaved to greater perfection. " His forward voice (the first article) is to speak well of his friend; his backward voice ('he second article) is to utter foul speeches and to detract." The men of the press are the authors of the moral life of nations, says the forward voice. Nothing can be so morally low as the tone of the men of the press, says the backward voice. Bullying, exaggeration, downright lying, don't apply to the newspaper man, cries the forward voice. The newspaper man bullies, exaggerates, lies, cries the backward voice. His own party deem him a servant of Right and Patriotism, says the forward voice. His own party have retained his services, and do what they like with their "own," says the backward voice. No profession is more honored in England at this hour, by the intelligent, than that of the press, cries the forward voice. Until they sign their names to what they write, the press will he a mere mercenery mass, cries the backward voice The journalist is not believed ready toreneat hislies for a tew guineas, says the forward voice. Is any one simple enough not to believe that bribes are as old as th? press itself, asks the backward voice. The man of the press is a Lion, cries the forward voice. He is h Libeller, cries the backward voice. His autographs fetch high prices, says the forward voice. But we had better stop here, seeing that we Btumble on something like agreement For, responds the backward voice, one must oity the innocent who does not know of " tangible modes of payment" for the devotedness of a man of the press' Which is perha|M only more delicately put ia the remark on high priced autographs Between such exaggerated differences in men of the same political views, who thus flatly contradict each other, and stultify the journal they write in, the tmth has, at any rate, room and breadth enough to make itself calmly and clearly known. And if of ' the overweening claim it should hardly approve, on the low and false depreciation it may assuredly trample with scorn. English journalism, whatever ita defects may be, represents not unworthily the civilization and intelligence of England. A grea' people finds free utterance in it for every possible difference of thought and of opinion, and a respec table community has no call to be ashamed ot it. The man who Bays it wages war on private life, or who implies that it is conducted hy professional bullies, whose avarice or other passions invite the price of their dishonor, utters what we can only call a falsehood. Its writers are for the most part men ol known character and station, and have all the inducements to keep them true, even if they had all the basenet^ to be able to be false. As to the particular "revelations" to be expected from the English journalist, or the special "truths Irom the higher regions of philosophy," of which the enthusiastic article in the "Westminster" speaks, when it likens him to Spring in the (freek ode, shining forth and scattering roses?we will only say, that when he sets forth a pretension to deal in these wares, it is more than probable he will be found actually supplied with them- Meanwhile, we contemplate htm with equal admiration in a somewhat humbler sphere, where he no doubt feels he is able to do greater present good. Swilt observes it is an uncontrolled truth, that no man ever made an ill figure who understood his own talents, nor a good one who mistook them ; and it is, we think, one of the chief distinctions of the Engli.-h journalist, that he both understands his talents, and their most cautious and useful application. He seldom stops short, and much more seldom goes too far. He does not loiter near Apsiey House while his friends are some dozen miles further on the road ; nor exercise his speed in the Park at Windsor, while his readers are struggling to be lifted out ot Slough. He is an eminently practical man ; and, upon the whole, we say, a just and conscientious man. Of the latter we think we gave some proofs, in our late paper on the newspaper prpss of France. His great ability we do not think anv one would question, except perhaps the friend of the American editors in the "Westminster Re view." With every disadvantage to contend against; forced to write upon suhjects with which he may be least familiar; always writing against time ; never able to escajie such immediate cuntaci with what he treats, hs must always to some extent cloud its just proportions; how seldom is the English lournaliet a mere caricaturist, dogmatist, or declainw! With such a man as this.it is now attempted to confound the newspaper man of America. But it will not do. Our exposure of last October stands on record against the stale trick ; and, if anything else were needed, the answer of the American press to that exposure is now on record also! A precious and invaluable testimony to the truthfulness and justice of the " Foreign Quarterly Review !" It ' becomes us gratefully to recognize it, and to offer some slight description of it. Such is our present purpose. We will be enreful to do it as briefly as we may. The first steam-packet after the Review had reached the States, brought to this country the letter of an intelligent "New York Merchant," which was published in Jthe " Specfatator " newspaper In that letter we found it stated: "The review ol the American newspaper press in the ' Foreign Quarterly' is attributed here to Pickens, I believe falsely. hi the main it is true, ami their fare cuts ottttri.Y ; but justice is scarcely done to ;he "Courier and Enquirer," which is decidedly one of the heat papers published in New York ; although that dart not say much, / confess " We knew that such was the esteem in which the "Courier and Enqui rer" was held, and it was for that reason we singled it out lorexhihition of its atyle and character. We ihould grieve to think that we had not done it justice; but what was omittvd in the former article may ,iossibly be supplied in this "In the main it is true, mui therefore curs dkki-r.y." This statement, in an i nt?11ik? nt and altogether unprejudiced quarter, we could not but observe with pleasure. But how little were we nbla to appreciate ali that it conveyed, till we had seen the papers it had cut so deeply ! We sosght, through a leader ot three lengthy columns devoted to us in the Courier and Enquirer," for one word that should proclaim the manly >rthe hold antagonist. We found only the meanest <hoffling, the most cowardly and bullying evasion iVe found our review falsely charged on a distin ,'uished writer?who had nothing to do with it, and nad never, but as one ol tiie public, seen it?that what admitted of no reply might be the excuse for < series ot vulgar personal libels. We found not s ingle statement met, not an argument even at'erupted to bennsvered, not a syllnhle ol any kind but that which the dishonest is never called to orig. ^ . ...

" Wo quote again from thia infamoua review, t 1 To convict a man in America, unleit he happens to be a negro, ia by no means a nrcesssry urelud- to hia pun iihmont.

What say his New York friends to its truth We will leli the editor of the " Courier an f Enquirer" what hit friends say to its truth, which may possibly he more satisfactory to him. All die world hasseenihe account of the attempted rebellion on hoard the " Somers" American brig of war, commanded by Captain Alexundei Slidell Mackenzie, the " Young American," whose " Year in Spain" made a very favorable impression in this country some short lime back. It was alleged to have been headed by a midshipman of the name of Spencer, nineteen years ol age, with whom were said to have been directly implicated two of the common sea meu. It was revealed us madly as it seems to have been rlimrf. ud t sort of nfne ^suspicion of the probable coo|>erntinn of several of the crew was founded on the discovery of a paper which was afterwards described by Captain Mackenzie, in the exculpatory narrative he submitted to the authrities, in these curious terms On this paper strange characters were written, which jirovtd to be. Q'trk, with which Mr. Spencer was familiar. It form natelv happened that another midshipman whs on board who understood Greek?one whose Greek, as well ns every thing else he possessed, were wholly devoted to his country? Midshipman Rogers. He translated those characters." Upon Mr. Rogers' explanation (lor without some reasonable suspicion of th" possible rising of the crew, the whole affair is as unintelligible as deplorable) it was resolved on the sudden to hang Mr. Spencer and his two associates, men named Small and Cromwell * Notice was accordingly given them; not the least form or shadow of a trial was gone into ; they were told within an hour or two to prepare for death ; and at the expiration of that time, were hanged at the yardarm. This done, the crew (under orders) cheered very lustily for the American fl ig, with its stripes and stars. "1 then said," adds Captain Mackenzie's narrative, "that thev had givenilieers for their flag, but that they should also give cheers to their God, by singing to his praise. I ordered the hunilredth psalm to be sung " Duly arrived at home with his dreary news to tell, the first paper in which any thing like an authentic account ef Captain Mackenzie's tragedy appeared, was the " New York Courier and Enquirer." The selection was a happy tribute to the influence of this base press; highly illustrative of the unquestioned and unquestionable power of that epi rit of pany with which it has cursed America : eminently characteristic of the utter absence of delicacy or decency which marks its influence over men esteemed the most honorable.f The miserable voung man, Mr. Spencer, whom Captain Mackenzie hanged, was the eldest Ron of a prominent statesman ?f America, the Hon. Mr. Spencer, Secretary at War to the present government of Washington. So connected with " His Accidency," as the "Courier" love* to style the President, we need not say that Mr. Spencer had been the mark of a'l the most venomous abuse that this vile print could direct aeainst liiin Which, indeed, it had pursued with its most perfect hatred, Mr Spencer or " Captain Tyler," would be pprha|? difficult to say.? There was an art. 'especially devoted to both some few days before i - arrival of Captain Mackenzie, in which " mote. '>/c truk," " veriest wretch," " unprincip'ed politici ," " imberile,** "traitor," " din graceful imbti ile. greatest < urge," were the choicest epithets app '.a to the President of America and his Secretary at Wur. The last man then, we would say, with whom Captain Mackenzie should have entered into communication on the subject o' the dreadful events in which he had borne chivf part, was the man signalized by his hatred of the family whom those events had plunged into deepest affliction?the editor of this "Courier and Enqui rer." Rut as we have said, he was the first. And lie has paid the lavwr back with all fitting gratitude. He has zealously defended Captain Mackenzie throughout, and upheld him as a friend. Even this friend, therefore, we will now bring to justify the only special passage in our " Review," which his advocate haB dared to dispute. We do not apologise for having detained the reader with ihe episode necessary to introduce this evidence, because it has served at the 8?me time to throw valuable illustration on other points ol our subject We asserted, that to convict a man in America, un less he was a negro, was no necessary prelude to his punishment. We said that a murderer, whether of life?or of character, without which lite is worth lew?had infinite chances, it he happened to have a white lace. And, asks the editor ot the "Courier" t-sumphantly, what say my couutrymen to the truth of that f Let Captain Mackenzie answer, in a description of the last interview he held with ttie youth he was about to hang, as given in his memo rable narrative:? " I then turned to Spencer, and again naked him if he had any message te hi* friend*. He replied that he had none, but that he died wishing them every happiness ' I deferve death,' he added, ' for thia a* well a* tor other cftme*. My only fear ii, that my repentence may he too late.' When I aiked him if he could or would mention any one whom ha had particularly injured and whom ho might ?ave trom obloquy, he amwered not for aome time, nut at lnat said ' he had injured chiefly hit parentt, and that hie death would kill hit poor mother.' I waa not till then awaru that he had a mother. I then aaked bitn if he would not have been more guilty had he succeeded in hia deaigna. He replied that 'I do not know what would have become ol me if 1 had aucceeded. J fear it may yet injure my father." I replied, it waa then ten late to think ot that, and told him. that if he had aurceedea it would have injured hia father much more?that it. would not hare heen in nature for hie father not to interpote to tare him ; asd that roa thosk who iiah mo ? .... m l?mh.at So fares ihe only attempt to dispute by direct m-ans, a single statement or opinion in the " For from the extraordinary evidence tinco adduced ia luatiflcatioa of thin act before the tribunal appointed to report upon it, u e take one passage having immediate rele rferenceto thia man, which in mi too mouatroua and outrageous for belief.

The Judge j\Unocal* tuggetlrd the propriety of punning the inquiry further.? It teas dropped.' i t bet us supply, by the way, from the same extraordinary case, another notable proof of the absence of these qualities, which caused of course na surprise, and provo ked no remark ol any kind. Captain Mackenzie, offering himself for trial in a case where, above all others,It seem ed essential that his conduct should be free from the slightest breath of suspicion; in which his first anxiety should have been, that no faintest color of motive could (tosatbly have lieun attributed to him, of even the must remotely connecting with any shadoay anticipation of hiown profit or advantage, events so dreadfa], and so plainly to be treated as a mere awful necessity ; Captain Mac kenzie, we say, in these circumstances, thus closed the narrative, to which ws have made reference in the text " Jill the credit which night accrue to Commander Mac kenzie, in case of his justification by the tribunal to whose ordeal he expected he would be subjected utas eolicited for the henejv if nil nf|wf?, u, n rinj, ?m?minrrwr? mended at a fit ami proper person to be appointed in the oum or Midshipman Spencer "(!!!) ;Tlio note which wat appended to this satisfactory statement of the moral condition of the newspaper-ridden re public, wai not less happily characteristic- " Perhaps," savs Captain Mackenzie?with his editorial friend in nil probability, at hi* elbow?'" perhaps thia ia an trro neout opinion, which I could net justify ; but I must now record faithfully what waa said on this melancholy oceaion."

LP. Pries Two Cento. eign Quarterly Review !" Other artifices are adopt, ed of course, to the basest ot which we have already adverte d. The moat natural and the most amusing we will now detail. It is v?ry trite to have to remind the reader of the well known propensity ol delinquents of all times and countries, when detected in some common Hnd notorious villany, to catch af that d' tperate chance of escape which seem- to them always, by some universal process ot no reasouing, to be implied in the treacherous turning round on their associates. There is, happily tor the virtuous, no confidence, no frtendship in crime. Thus, in the case betoreas.it has been sought to make the " New York Herald" the sole luckless scapegoat. " It is notorious," says the "Journal of Commerce," "rhat the "Herald ' was established among us after the model of the London prtu " lOh ' excellrnt " Westminster" reviewer, what a prize you will be to your worthy associates!] "And now they have the impudence to come out an't disown their own bantling. We have frequenttv thought," adds this cautisHs and considerate journal, "thaiilie influence of that violent and abusive pui?er amongst us was exaggerated : that is, tuppontiff it wi* tint full of nberenittn, tor which unhappily readers may he found every where." In other words, the repudiation might run thus : Our violent and abusive associate would really, alter all, get no more by his violence and abuse than we do; but lie issc peculiarly admirable in the obscene line, which every body is unhappily inclined to,that there, we must admit, he carries the day. We sympathize with the journalist of Commerce in his confessed inability, that way, to compete with his more successful rival, and we will add to his credit, that we cannot say we have ever observed him even make the attempt. Indeed, this " Journal o( Commerce" is on the whole a very dull, and (as far as any thing of the ffenua "newspaper" tan be in America) a very harmless journal?one, for example, as it naively confessed on the 10th ot January last, who " ran not tee the ' Courier't' wit in telling out raoeoi/s i.iks directly in the face of public knowledge"?and we should not have made further mention of it, if it had not fallen into this fit of anger against ourselves. But now for the wit of the "Courier." He cries out, too, of course, and in far louder tone.the precious "Tu Quoque" argument. "Pooh!" exclaims the wit, in his least indecent mood and phrase,"the American press compared with the English, is us a Chesterfield to a CoDbett!" The argument is become natural to large classes in America. You have it used on every occasion. Charge them wnh dishonesty in their dealings, and they offer to find you dealers quite as dishonest; charge them with national degradation or dishonor, and they look round for a nation in a like predicament. To reform their dealings, or to strive to amend iheir nation, is the last thing thought of.* Buf passing ihis, we come to the Chesterfield language, wherewith the "Courier and Enquirer" would repudiate (it is a good American word, thai!) his worthy associate. " The great burthen of this Review, is to tlx upon the Press of the United States, the folly, the *61060117, the recklessness,and the vulgarity ofthe "New York Herald;" 11 paper far which, at Dickens well knows, the American people entertain no other sentiment than unmitigated disgust, and which happens to be edited by a band ot foreigners, who wire actually hit knon companion1. and co labor ere on some of Ik* moil icurrilout of the London paper t."

Equally, and as wilfully, does he mistake the "great burthen" of that Review *1 October. It was to fix upon the press of the United States, in companionship with like qualities of the " New York Herald," the folly, the obscenity, the recklessness, and the vulgarity of the" New York Courier and Enquirer." He knows this, and he knows that we have done it. We have pilloried him here in England. He tries to escape, and it is the dreary impotence of this very effort which fixes upon his name more deeply and irrevocably " the folly, the obscenity, the recklessness, and the vulgarity." He makes dismal efforts to be facetious?talks with frantic outrage of the writer who is supposed to have placed him ia liia pillory, aa one " who lor more than half his life ha* lived in iht stewx 0/ London, and eaten hi* daily bread at "cold wittal" thopt, supplied from the refute garbage of hotelg and the table* of gentlemen"?and in tancy hears himself, across all that wide Atlantic,only the more loudly greeted with The dismal, universal hiss, the sound Of public scorn. How we should feel for the " Westminster Review," with such a creature as this to defend ! How yet more deeply should we sympathize with such a man as the intelligent " New York Merchant," who is obliged to think the " Courier and Enquirer" decidedly one of the best papers published in New V/?elr evhkna* nh that ///!# >./)/ 1/11/ nnttrh mnitrnftillw " confesses." But?we are to believe?no other sentiment than unmitigated disgust is entertained in America for the "Courier's" associate, convicted like himself, and like himselt under punishment, the "New York Herald?' It is unmitigated ditgutt which has given the " Herald" upwards of thirty thousand subscribers! It is unmitigated disgust which so strength* ens it that it rears its impudent head above the law, and runs its career of reckless villany, unbridled and triumphant! It is unmitigatrd diigu.it on the part of the American people, that renders it worth the while of the Chief Magistrate, who hopes for hut reelection at the hands oi that people, to incur the active hatred of a majority in the Senate, and the contempt and distrust of (let us hope) large classes of educated men, by openly connecting his govern* ment with this " New York Herald," by taking under his protection the wretched slanderers in its pay, and by rewarding their zeal for himself by " secret agpncies"in the service of the Stale ? Will even the Westminster reviewer be able to believe that? The first part of this description of an influence so horrible, we proved in our former review ; the last we shall now proceed to prove. When rogues (we grieve to have to draw so many illustrations from this special walk ot lite, but the subject will be our excuse)?when rogues, we say, fall out, honest men are apt to get their own. A month or two since, this happened with twoof the most notorious rogora of the " Herald;" the "chief devil" himself, and the fiendish representative, (a person of the name of Parlemee,) he had stationed at Washington. The _l If .... ...U I ..U J?t.n ....lU.n tUa Inal Ullirrtnicr, Wliicu uaicn muiui iuq iaoi muuiu <>r bix weeks, first appeared in an attack upon the rogue in chief, in one of the " Herald's' rivals. This was clearly from the pen of Mr. Parmelee, who having iust been displaced from his honorable post at Washington, took occasion to describe his successor as "Attrtr, the notorious vagabond " " It is very curious," he proceeded, " to notice how very differently the " Herald" is looked upon since Parmelee left it. It was. before, a sort of organ of the Preti/lent. It was owing to ihisthe paper gained such a circulation over the United States. An attempt of the Scotch vagabond who owns the ' Herald" to cheat him of several hundred dollars, led to a separation." In answer to this, the editor of the "Herald" undertakes to prove Mr Parmalee "a self-convicted liar;" and.it may be said, he quite succeeds. He prints a number of h>a letters, professing eternal gratitude and friendship, and thus delineates Mr. P. s general literary career. Out of pure pity, he says, as he had acted to "many oilier scoundrels" (the phrase happily expresses the only class which such a man ever pities or employs) he had taken him into his service. "I soon found, however, that he was of little use as a reporter, ana too lazv for anv purpose, except loafing at taverns, or playing billiards with jackasses.

Little may be added to this gracetul picture, but if it could receive another effective touch, it has it in the following letter. It is a part of the private correspondence ol Mr. Parmelee with his friend, the editor of tha "New York Herald." "WiiHisoTos, Friday evening.?Dear Si',? I haw lust returned from thy White Home.
