NEW YORK HERALD. N?w Vtrh, Tar?U). March ??. IMA. Vorttfii ? ai We give in this morning'* HrmM, n very impor tant and lutrreating letier from our London corres pondent. it ahould be rrad by every woe Arbitration?I h? ?HTrc? of Ha liofnaal. It in the general nnpreaeioo that the next news from England, in a political point of view, will be of the moat unfavorable character The effect of tlua anticipation ta already showing itself ia the financial *nd commercial circle*. It cannot ne disputed but that the government and paople of Oreat Britain have cauae to complain of the course pursued by our government, in relation to this qaeation. The re fusal to arbitrate, because an acceptance of that offer would amount to an acknowledgement <>f a claim of Great Britain to a port.on of the Oregon territory, cannot but create a feeling, not only in England, but throughout Europe, very unlavorable o the poeition and claim* of the I nited folates. The position ukrn by the President, in all his public documents, gives us to understand that our title to the whole of Oregon is indisputable ; and the last letter of Mr. Buchanan, in the last correspondence, gives us to understand that the government will not in any way admit that Great Britain has the slightest claim to an inch of the temtory south of ftlty-four forty. Every act of the administration, since it oame into power, in relation to this question, (if we except the offer made to compromise on the forty ninth degree, which was made merely out of re spect to the previous President, and withdrawn im mediately after its refusal,) has plainly pointed to 64 40, and nothing less. Notwithstanding these things, Senators, pretendiag to be in the confidence of the executive, state that he does not claim the whole of the territory?that he ia in lavor of compromising the matter, and that he will continue to make every eflort to set'le the question amicably and satisfactorily. It ia impossible to reconcile these things. Either Mr. Polk is opposed to giving up a single foot of the Northwestern territory south of 54 40, or his public documents, and the letters of his Secretary of State, are intended to humbug the people of this country. He has committed himself on the whole of Oregon, and cannot consistently compromise in any way.? The claim of the United States to the whole teui tory, may be, in the mind of the President, indisputa ble?his public documents say so; but, as Senator tor Haywood says, the President does not say in his inaugural, or in his message to Congress, thst he intended to claim the whole, or that he should not acknowledge or admit the claim of Great Britain to a portion?but he says, through his Secretary of State, more than that. Mr. Buchanan, in his last letter to Mr. Pakenham, refuses to admit the claim of the English government in any shape, and refuses arbitration, principally, because it might be con strued into an acknowledgment that Great Britain had oame shadow of a claim upon the territory below 54 40. It the messages of the President were not perfectly explicit upon this point, the cor respondence between the Secretary of State and tne British Minister has committed the Governor ent, and Mr. Polk stands before the world an uncompro mising advocate of the American claim to the whole of Oregon. We cannot see any loop hole by which he can esc^e. from that position. He cannot, after taking such a stand, submit to compromise. If the President conscientiously considers our claims so clear and indisputable as his public documen ts asaert, and avoids so eagerly every movement cal culated to weaken our claims, there is no alterna tive. Conces8ions must be made on the part of our Government, or the peace of the two countries is not of long duration. The Executive is certain ly placed in a very peculiar and delicate position, and it will, without doubt, be a great relief to him if the Senate assume the responsibility of compro mising the matter. Erik Canal.?A person who has never travelled on this grand achievement ot enterprise, can have no idea of the busy scene, in the business season, from Schenectady to Eutl'alo. A few years since, the country through which the canal runs, was a dense forest, trod only by the red men and a few straggling white setders. What a difference it now presents! Towns and villages meet the traveller at almost every mile, and the large number of boats and packets eternally passing and repassing, add s cheerfulness to die scene. The unexampled strides of the West, since the opening of this canal, have been of great advantage to it and to this State. The greater part of the pro dace raised in the region of country bordering on the great Lakes, is transported on this canal to tide water, thence to be transhipped to foreign countries, to feed the hungry, whose climate is not so propi tious as our own. The increase of business on this canal bears out the predictions and proves the far-seeing sagacity of its projec^r, JDe Witt Clinton. To hi h people of the Empire State are indebted for the construc tion and projection ot this great avenue of wealth; and as long as the Erie Canal is in existence, his memory will not die. Ptom the amount of business done on the canal last year, and the great preparations now being made, there is no doubt that a greater business will be done this year than ever before. In all tjie boat building yards on its banks, we see the workmen at work, "might and mam," constructing new boats ud repairing old ones. In Rochester alone, fifty new boats, valued at 575,000, are building; and this is only an index to rhe great preparations for this year's business Primary Election.?The democrats hold their primary election today. They elect delegates to the mayoralty convention. Ocran Stbam Navigation.?There seems be a bit of a furor, at the present time, for ocean steam ship lines. There will probably be five lines in ope ration in less than a year?the Cunard line, the Great Western line, a French line, the Scrrw line, from Liverpool, and an American line. These steamers will touch at Liverpool, Cowee, Havre, and probably firemen, in Europe; and Boston and New York in the United Slates. In addition to these, there will be an increase in the English lines to South America and the West Indies, and the or ganization of a French line to the latter section, with side lines to run elsewhe re. English Despatches roR England ?The Boston Timti of yesterday, contains the following para graph :? "J4 w" rumored vary generally in State (treet, on Friday, that there was something very interesting and important in relation to the Hibefnia's etay among us at tb* present time. We learn that a gentleman who bad heard that the llibsrma had received ordere from Mr. rakenham to be la retdiness to leave for F.nr land at an hour ?notice,asked Cept Harrison, (of the Hibernia.) if case. We understand that the Captain replied u,,t ,tV/*P?rt w?*,not "LtricUr correct but that he had mfnt hnii*M'm.*/i?rr* A 1#n hoa?. front his govern ment, to hold himself leadyat short notice to take hie departure. It iealeo said that, for this reason, none of the officers on board can obtain leave of absence fmm the ste.rn.hip We understand, in addMe^'ait tK Hibernia has already taken on board her stores and falls* There may, and may not be some truth in this. It is pretty certain, however, that these mail steam ers are always under the control of the English Mi nister at Washington. Prom St. Dominoo.?By the arrival of the brig Almatia, Capt. Smith, last evening, from St. Dtp imngo city, we learn that a Spanish fleet, consist ing of two steamers, a frigate, and two schooner* of-war, had arrived from Porto Rico, and remainec at St. Domingo 3H hours, whence they sailed foi Cape Haytien, to demand SSO.flOO for insults oflered to the Spanish flag, and (or the imprisonment o some Spanish subjects. If satisfaction was no given. tiiey were to stuck Cape Haytien mime d lately. The Spaniards were in arms/waiting f pi an attack from the Haytiens The steam shij Ariel, which sailed from Boston for the Havti ei government, had arrived at St Thoinaa. n0 newi of bar arrive at Cape Haytien was known at Jvey Duty.?Having simply adverted to the man ner in which jurora are obtained, we will now point out the inflictions and abuses so generally manifest in the discharge of such duty. Trial by jury has been universally proclaimed as the "pride and bul wark of our liberty," guaranteed to us by that im perishable document, the " constitution." We do not know why it iB that a portion of our citizens should be so frequently called upon to de vote so much of their time in settling private dis putes, and trifling delinquencies of no personal in terest to themselves, or of any particular benefit to the community at large, without fee, compensation, thanks, or reward. It is by no means a matter of rare occurrence, in our civil courts, to And jurymen deliberating for days and nights upon some trifling and unimportant issue of private malignity, engendered, perhaps, by a vindictive and persecuting spirit of double-deal ing, and in no way involving the real interests of the parties concerned. With such repeated instances coming within our daily intercourse, we are no longer surprised that those of our citizens who are eligible to jury duty, are so frequent with their complaints. It is a great tax upon cur business men, and one, certainly, which requires prompt and immediate reform. In referring to the laws of James, Duke of York, as far back as 1664, we find it was provided that "every juryman shall be allowed three shillings and sixpence (sterling) per diem, out of the profits in each court, or by the country, if these profits shall fall short *' This law was probably in force until the close of the seventeenth century; for we find similar pro visions engrossed in the " great charter of liberties," granted in October, 1683, fully approved and sanc tioned by James. Thea came the act of 1741, which imposed some additional compensation to jurymen, and which was in no way modified or disturbed until after that great period of events?1774. No one seems to doubt but that jurymen should be compensated in some way, for the time employed by them in the discharge of their responsible obli gations; and the only question at issue appears to be in what manner, or by whose authority, they should be compensated. It were an easy matter to adopt some statutory provision to this eflect; or it might be so provided that those parties bringing an action should become responsible for this, as well as other attendant costs of the court. Our legal functionaries receive high salaries lor the ditties incumbent upon them; and, upon the same rule, we know not why our jurymen should not be rewarded for their labor and time while so employed. The duty itself is a disagreeable one, independent of the privations the jurors are compelled to un dergo during the period of their deliberations. Small States vs. Larqs States.?We perceive from a circular addressed to members of Congress, and signed by a number of respectable men, that j the citizens of the northern part ot the Territory of Iowa, are desirous of having the Territory divided j into two portions. They propose to divide the ter- I ritory at the 42d degree of north latitude, extending from the Mississippi on the east, to the Missouri , river on the west. The principal object that is urg- i ed in iavor of this division, is, that the policy and welfare of the West require an increase of repre sentation and influence in the Senate of the United States. It is known by our readers, that a convention was recently held in Iowa, for the purpose of forming a constitution and being ndmitted into the family of States; but on account of the diversity of interests represented, the delegates could not agree upon a constitution. Those in favor of the proposed divi sion, say that? " Tbe boundaries heretofore proposed by the Iowa convention, as well as those proposed by Congress, em braced by far too great an extent of territory for a sin 81 e State, and leaves the adjacent country in an unfa- 1 ivorahle situation for the formation of naw States. If the division should be made on the 43d parallel of lati- , tude, Iowa will contain at least twenty-tight thousand square miles o( land, poasesaing unsurpassed fertility, I an abundance of timber, of water power, and excellent commercial facilities ; and if the division should be at 43 degrees 16 minutes, Iowa would contain at least 30,000 square miles. Such a division would have a de sirable eastern and western extension, with a popula tion latitndinally assimilated and characteristic ; posses sing more homogenity of feeling?harmony of temper ament, of hebita, pursuits, end education, than exist be tween citizens of northern and southern localities. The local interests and pursuits of our citizens residing south of the 43d parallel of latitude, are diametrically different from those of the north. South of that line they are predominantly an agricultural people, while those north are chiefly interested in mining operations. This clash ing of interests, arising from the same source, has exist ed and still exists in our sister State, Illinois, and we thinh the unfortuuate occurrences that have so much re tarded the growth and prosperity of that rich and beau tiful State, for a few years past, may, to a great extent, be attributed to this cause. And we shall not be surpris ed if it yet produce a diviiion, and the formation of a new State, from the northern portion ot Illinois and southern portion of Wisconsin. The parallel of lati tude we propose, will most likely be the dividing line between these two interests. If placed south oi the 43d degree, it will leave the future 8tate of Iowa too small; and if placed north of tbe 43d degree 16 minutea, it wil infringe upon the intereata of the north, and con sequently be, to a certain extant, productive of the evil* to which we have alluded. A line at 43 or 43j degrees has been spoken of. There is an addi tional objection to those already advanced, to this line It would give the Territory an unseemly and awk ward shape, as it would intersect the Missouri river, just below the great bend, sevaial hundred miles west ot the point where the southern boundary would intersect it. It would cut oft ail prospect of another State for many years, as but lew white inhabitants reside outside that line; whereas, by the plan which we recommend, there would be a sufficient population to form another new State, in five, if not three years, as there are now about 30,000 inhabitants in the i ew Territory. It would also leave too small a population on the St. Tatar's for the formation of s Territorial government; but the settlers would, with the proposed division, bo embraced within the new Territory. In addition to what has already bean said,we think experience has shown that the large State policy is not best calculated to advance our interests in either a national or.Htate capacity. The North and East have long since aJopted the policy of small states with success. Tbe South is beginning to aJopt it. A proposi tion is already before them for the formation of a Dew State, from Tennessee, Kentucky and Mississippi Flo rida, too, will dountless ultimately be divided. Texas will be divided and subdivided as soon as bar population will admit of it. While, then, every other portion of the I'nion is divided and subdivided into States of e reason able and convenient size, we see no good reason why the gteat West, able to sustain double the population on the tame extent of territory that many portions of tbe East and North can, should be divided ioto e few mam moth States, each as large as all Naw England." We hardly think that the Weet haa any reason to complain of want of influence in the national gov. crnment; but still we see no good reason why the Territory of Iowa should not be divided, if its citi zeus think proper. On the contrary, if the proponed division were f fleeted, all difficulty of forming States out of the parts would be at an end, and a constitution would be immediately formed by eacn, and a couple more of bright stars would twinkle in our firmament. The New Mail Arrangement ?'Tbe mm talked of new mail arrangement for the depnrtu of the great Southern mail^oes into operation Id* morrow. The mail will do* at 3 o'clock in the i ternoon, and go through to New Orleans one d quicker than heretofore. By this arrangement ;>t sengers for ihe great West can reach Cincmna <&c., twenty-four hours ahead of the present time. Mi;rder AND Excitement ?We have before i the Lousville papers containing an extract from Naahvills paper of Sunday last, detailing a most siogul sflair in that city, which happened the dry previous Judeon is commonly called "Ned Bantlin/'and wae ci earned In publishing in this city last year. Ws qu< the extract referred to : Yas'erday afternoon, E Z C. Judson shot and kill Mr. Robort Porterfield. of this city.

Indeed, this will bear hearing again and again. It is a^ anything that has been seen here on any stag* long time. ? Bowxav THEATax.-Mr. Jackson, with that diacriml- , nating talent for which he is so pre-eminently diatinguiah- | ed. ha* brought out anothe r thrilling equestrian drama, which, if possible, exoels "Ivanhoe" itaelf. Who haa not read that noble poem ef Scott'a, which atira the aoul aa with the blaat of a 'rumpet? Who ha* not felt tho martial j spirit atir within him aa he pored over the page* of "Mar mion?" Yet the peruaal of it ia nothing compared with witnessing tho visible developement of ita characWs on the stage. Ingeniously dramatized, supported by the moat beautifully decorated and well conceived scenery, exquisite music, and fine acting, it is altogether a piece of magnificence without parallel. Mr. Scott'a Marmion is well conceived, and a moat masterly representation of the haughty valor of the English lord. One might al- , most have heard a pin drop, so deep waa the atlenoo oc oaaioned by hi* thrilling answer to Douglas? " And if thou said'at I om not peer, . To any lord in Scotland here, Lowland or Highland, far or near, Lord Douglas, thou haat lied!" ? Davenport, a* the Palmer, well sustained his previous reputation, but we cannot consider Miluer's Douglas a competent performance-it was too atiff and unnatural. Mrs. Sergeant sings the aong of "Ob, young Lochinvar, is come out of the west," most charmingly, and waa en thusiastically applauded. Her acting, too, waa oxcoN lent The battle scene of Flodden Field is the most forceous pageant ever produced on the American stage, 'he glittering armour of the knights,the heraldic bear ings on their shielda-the bright create on their helmet* ?the clang of trumpets, and the shouts of the victors, mingled with the groans of the dying, gave the most in tense interest to the scene. " Front, flank and rear,these aquadrons sweep, To break the Scottish circle* deep, That fought around their king. But yet tho" thick the shafts as snow, Tho' charging knights like whirlwind* go, Tho' billtnan ply the ghastly blow, Unbroken waa the ring ; The stubborn spearsman still made good Their dark, impenetrable wood. Each stepping where his comrade stood, The instant that he foil. No thought was there of distant flight; Linked in the serried phalanx Ught Groom fought like noble?squire like knight, As fearlessly and well. Till utter darkness closed her wing. Round their thin host and wounded king." The death scene of Marmion waa terribly grand, and true to nature. Mr. Scott is undoubtedly a tragedian of the highest order of talent. This superb drama will be repeated to-night, and there can be no doubt that the house will continue to be aa crowded as it wa* last evening. , Bowser AurMiTHKAvaa.?Among tho many place* of amusement at present In New York, we should eay that the Bowery Amphitheatre ia decidly the most attractive. Under the management of Sands, Lent It Co., who have oncaged the building for a term of two week*, mad in troduced a series of new features, never before witness ed in America, we cannot see how it is possible lor the management not to gather a harvest, rich beyond prece dent in New York, even for the short season they will remain here. 1 n addition to the usual circus attraction*, there can be seen here a troup* of twelve real Shetland ponies, educated, if we may use the term, to perfection. Vents almost iocredible, they perform with ease and gracefulness. They personate the celebrated pugilists, f'om Spring and DeafBurke, and exhibit a great deal of sciences in their encounters. They dance the Polka and other fashionable dances, with wonderful dexterity. Two of them will jump through an ordinary sixed hoon toge ther, and in the midst of a swift gallop stop suddenly, as if by magic, at tha word of command; in floe, they do every thing that moat hnman being* can do, and more than aome. This is decidedly the greatest novelty ever brought forward in New York, and richly do tho maris tors deserve of tho public, for their enterprise. The feates of horemanship, vaulting and tumbling, are all ex ecuted in th* flrat stylo, and elicit th* most vocifarou* aoolauae. To enumerate all the feats performed at thi* establishment, ia impoaaible within tho limits <of Itsi arti cle. and we muat content ourielvee by saying that.every man woman and child in the community should visit the Bowery Amphitheatre while tho company r.malns. in thie city. t New Oaxr.5wiCH Theatre.?'Tho new Greenwich , Theatre, at tho corner of Verick and Charlton atreota, | will open on Monday evening next, with a highly ta- 1 looted dramatic carps.

Alcesndeb MurmTTi.?n* fune ral ceremonies of the Rot. Mr Mnppiettl were performed jMttrdiy forenoon, at the Trani (Ifa ration Church, In Chamber* itreet. The church was crowded to suffoca tion. and hundreds were fathered around the door who could not obtain entrance. The church was completely shrouded in black.and lighted by a large number of can dles. The bo ly of the departed priest was raised.upon a platform in the centre of the church, dressed in his pon tifical robes, and clasping in his hands a silver chalice. The body was surrounded by twenty-four burning tapers. The deeply impressive requiem mass was sung, and a The deeply impressive requiem mass was sung, and a peculiarly solemn Uiitrirt. This ceremony, upon such an occasion,is certainly the most solemnly impressive of any thing we can conceive. The cromied church, throughout the whole, wee silent, so that the solemn tonea of the organ blending with the musical voices of the prieats, were heard distinctly, and fully impresaad the audience with a feeling of eecred awe. Altar tho ceremony of mess, the Rt. Rev. Bishop McCloakey de livered a short discourse. Ho said that tha occasion of tho death of a friend or relative, was always a melancho ly one-, but the death of a priest more so than any other. He whom they had often seen officiating at that altgr, was now lying before it, cold in death?his hands clasp ing the ohalice, as he bed otten done in life while ad ministering the blessed sacrifice of tho Eucharist. Tbay had don# honor to that body because it was once the tenement of an immortal spirit, and bocauea it too should rise again, purified, at the last day. But it was not for tho body alone that these rites had been performed?they had followed th* spirit to the Throne of Ood, and had there Intersceded in it* behalf that no obstacle might prevent it* tale end speedy entrance into e participation of tho blessed Joys of heaven. It was not for him hare to speak of the virtues of tha decaasad?all his congrega tion had witnessed how by his precept, and better still instilled into their hearts the by his example, he bed

Thomas Flvhis's LscTtsv ?Tom Flvnn, long known to the world, and particularly the New York world, as an actor, gentleman, good fellow, and one who parti lularly loved his glass along with hie friends, having reformed, and determined to abandon bis evil ways, gave e lecture last evening at tha Tabernacle, on the subject of tempe rance. There wee quite h large audience gathered te gather, and among tnem a pretty goodly number ot le- i die*. After the singing of e temperance sonv, in a very fine manner, by Mr. Brown, of Yonkere, Mr. Flynn made , his appearance and commenced hie address. Mr. Flynn j was received with three loud, long end heeity cheer*. ; This 1* th* first time, said he, that I nave had occasion to i address a New Yoik audience. There are many of my fellows who have heard of Tom Flynn, and I have often played my part on the etage for your amusement. It has , often beon said thht those connected with the stage are votaries of alcohol. This 1* partially true. I have lor r the flag of ii many year* marched under the flag of intemperance, but I have left that flag forever, end now I can only hope that Ood will give me strength to keep my pledge. I j could tell you many tales connected with my intempe rate career. One I will give. I arose one bright, sun shiny morning, and went as usual to take a drink. Where I wee going, was in e basement, and when I had descend ed about eight stops, a friend leaning over the railing, called out to me : " Flynn, it not it a pity you should , thus throw yourself away I Ba a nun and stop drinkiDg." , I was at first disposed to take it as an insult; but I thought j of it, and whan I want bona, in tha silent watch** of the night I thought ot his words, and I arose in the morn- 1 lug an altered man. I did not turn my steps to a grog gery. No '. I took the pledge. Such are the causes of myenlieting under the banner of tem|<erance and I am bap- | py to say that since my reform, many of my friends, far- i ther gone then I was,have tine* followed in my footsteps, j and are now marching under th* temperance banner. 1 Many actors generally acquire e habit of intemperance j by drinking between the acta, considering it necseiary. i 1 will relate a circumstance. " Hamlet" was to be ! played one evening?Hamlet by John Phillip Kemblo, 1 and tho Ghost by the eccentric Elliston, who thought he could never act unlos* ha was under the influence of drink. He sent, tho boy on this evening to an ; adjoining tavern, to get him something to drink. . Tha boy brought it, and whan Elliston had drank, he saw at the bottom of it a red sediment. He j aaid to the boy, " What is it V The boy immediately . tan to the landlady. In the mean time Elliston had i gone on the etage, and while there, saw the landlady in the wing making horrible grimaces and wringing her hands. Mr. Elliston, whsnno went off the stage, seized the women, and cried,'4 What was in tho glass V " O," said the woman, " I on afraid you '11 kill me If I tell you." " 1 will out your throat if you don't tall mo immediate ly." " Well, then," said the women," 1 'm a miserable women, end you are a miserable men. The boy made a mistake, and gave you a tumbler iu which I had mixed artenie to kill rats." Just at that moment the prompter celled, " Mr. Elliston.'' " I cant go on," said Elliston ; 1 must give up tha ghost!" Mr. Elliston had to go on, however ; and it wee finally discovered that the drink -was colored by some rose pink which was given by the prompter to the boy. But thi? did Elliston no good, lie always drank. In the year HMO, 1 left this city for the 8outh. Mr. Booth was with ms. Soon after we went on board, a sailor was brought on in a state of beastly intoxication. In tha mean time, Booth was roaming about and asking every body ke mot, " Whet had become of his wife and child 1" interweaving It with quotations from Shakspeara. In walking about, he happened to meet the tailor. To him ho said, " Why did you kill my wife end child J" "Did I," said tha sailor. " Yes," said Booth. " Had she e whit* bonnet on V " She had," said Booth. " Well," said the sailor, " then I suppose 1 did knock her over ; bnt she had ne butiness to be in my way." " Villein !" said Booth, " quit my sight, or I will commit e deed"?end then turning round, in the mildest manner to mo he said, " Flynn, call ma when we get to the niece where Con way perished." Conway was e retired actor, who com mitted suicide. Said he, " 1 have e message for Con way." Ho went down, and of course we did not call him. After we had passed the piece, Booth "111 * " ? - - came up, and crying "I'll be back shortly," jumpod overboad. Wo struggled herd to get him out, and finally got him into e email boat I well recollect the first words he aaid were, "Flynn, you're e large man ? look out you don't link tho boat, for if you do we shell all be drowned." Alcohol is one of the most suhUo poi sons It is slow but sure What would be thought of men who actually sold disease? And isn't it as bed to use the known cause of disease as dinssso itself ?

Z. TAYLOR, Brig. General, U 8. Army, commanding. The proclamation above has been published in the Spanish language, and issued to the inhabitants of the Rio Grande. The first brigade, under the command of Brevot Briga dier General W. J. Worth, composed of the battelion of artillery, commanded by Lieut Col.

The squadron of transports are to leave on the 30th inst., under convoy of the U. 8. cutter Woodbury, Capt. Foster, and the steamer Monmouth.

It was reported in Gal veston that General Taylor had mad* a requisition for more troops, but the report was doubted. Corpus Christi baa been literally abandoned.
