It brought us the following despatch last night Boston, Nov. 18?10 P.M. Nothing of the Acadia yet. The weather was clear at Bunset. manifesto of Santa Anna. We give in the Herald of this morning, several curious and interesting Mexican documents relative to the war. One of them ia the last manifesto of Santa Anna to the nation. It is it very funny document, in it lie calls upon, nay, conjures, old Rough and Ready, Gen. Scott, or Col. Doniphan, or some one else, to give him a certificate of character?the Mexicans averring that he lost the one they thought he had, at Buena Vista, Cerro Gordo, Churubusco, or in ' the City of Mexico. ' Financial Measures Towaidi Mixlco. ] We received yesterday morning, just in time i t?* send hy the steamship Wa-hington to England, ( the following important telegrapliic despatch i from Washington, from our special correspon- i dent in that metropolis, which gives us intelli- ] gence of the first movement of the President and cabinet in a series of measures which they have agreed on in relation to Mexico:? WAiHIKOTOK, Nov. 18, 1847. I The Secretary or the Treasury, Mr. Walker, has wnomtnended, and tbw President has just signed, the following salutary financial measures in regard to Mexico : Ut. The export duties exacted by the Mexican go- . eminent before tbe war, are to be levied by our officers as a military contribution, '2d. Whenever it is practicable, all internal property. ' taxes of any description, whether upon persons or pro- ' perty exacted by the government of Mexico,or by any i department, town or city thereof, are to be collected by 1 our officers, and appropriated as a military contribution toward defraying the expenses of the war, exoeptinp; transit duties, which are a check upon oommsree. 3d. The export duties on the precious metals are us follows Gold, coin or wrought, three per cent; silver coin, six do.; silver, wrought, with or without Mexioan certificates seven do.; gold ore or dust, thr?? do.; silver ore, seven do. Vufn Bene.? When the precious metals are taken from a city in our possession, the duty must be on them pre- i paid, or charged deuble, at the port of exportation. I Other measures, springing out of our tempore- i ry possession of that country, will be followed in due course of time. There is, on the subject of < Mexican affairs, what will soon be necessary for t our government to reflect on, and that is, the debt j due to foreigners and Europeans by that repub- ] lie. The Mexican debt to European creditors ( s generally stated to be eighty millions ol j dollars, the principal part of which is held i in England. During the last few years, the ( dividends have been paid with great irregularity, in consequence of the numerous revolutions and disturbances in that country. If our government should, after a full examination of the subject, and being incomplete financial, as well as j military, possession of that republic, determine toguarunty the d-'btdue to European creditors, we hate no doubt it would produce a most extraordinary influence on public opinion in Europe, favorable to the United States. Indeed, we have heard it frequently stated, by many leuding men who are acquainted with the subject, on the exchanges of both London and Paris, that if the United States held possession of Mexico, and occupied it, they never would be disturbed, [>rovidfd that we would adopt and guaranty the Mexican debt, and pay the interest regularly. Now, this question may be a very important one in connection with the future measures about to be taken by the President towards Mexico. ^ For some time, at least, that republic may be under the military and financial control of the nited States. There is no government there worthy of a name. The people seem to be re. j gardless of their nationality, and it is possible that the whole republic will be thrown on our hands indefinitely. In the meantime, peace and quiet, and public order will be established by the American Legions there. Americans will be crowding into all the seaports and cities of the republic?trad" will revive, business will be re-invigorated?industry will resume its accus tomed haunts, and the American spirit of enter- ] prise will reach that fine country, and give new energy and firmness to the national mind. Their soil?their mine-?their vast natural and agricultural wealth, will be brought into a new state of development. Already newspaper* in the Knglish language are spring'ng up in all 'he principal seaports and cities. Two, three, four, or half-a-dozen years may overcome the prejudice, both religious and national, which prevail* against the American name. These results being probable, it would be in the power of the temporary government, if Mexico is held under American authority, to adopt and guaranty .the publ'u debt of that republic to the foreign creditors, and pay the interest. It is a rich country, and under au energetic and industrious rule, eighty million* would form but a j mere trifle to its ability. I The Washinotsm went to sea yesterday after- | I iiion, in fine trim, and in all respects well pro- j vi toned. She passed the Battery about half-past 1 miu o'clock, in gallant style, cheered by an inijrvnse eoneourse of jn-oplc that had collected on the ueighboring wharves and vessels. General Armstrong, United States Consul at Liverpool, i-.imong her passengers. Notwithstanding the restrictive measures adopted !>y the British Government, in relative to letters l?y the "Washington, her mails were quite large. The Southampton Mail St*amkrs.?'The keel 1 i t the Humboldt, the third steamer in this line, j will be luid by Messrs. Wcatervelt and McKay, in about six weeks. The -latement which appeared in many of the city papera that this had already been accomplished, was premature. The frame work ifl now beinjr prepared, and when the vessel is once under way, the utmost d?'fP itch will be tt.vd. The Hermann will be ready to take her place in Febrnarjr, and not in Isninry, a* uhs been stated i C*w Johnami mud hla Blundering Poat.OAe* Management. There haa been a great deal of talk on i Cave Johnson and the yoat-ofiice manage- i ment,'among different parties; and some journals under the immediate influence of the department, and in the enjoyment of the pap it dispenses, have decided in a summary wa,y that Cave Johnson iu saint-like in ull his conduct, and that the railroad and steamboat companies are little short of pickpockets and extortioner*. In order that we might be able to arrive at a better knowledge of the subject, we have procured an accurate copy of the correspondence between the department and the railroad companies of Richmond and Washington, in relation to the transportation of the mails. This correspondence comprises about a dozen . letters; not exactly love letters. On examining 1 the statements in these letters with the utmost, care, we discover several glaring discrepancies and gross contradictions into which Cave Johnson has fallen, who, in fact, does not himself appear to comprehend what he would be at. In one letter he says that the maximum rate fixed i.?. ca : i- : I vy 1cs3 is ou per inutf; in anu- | ther letter he shows that the maximum rate it $300 per mil". In one letter he offers the company absolutely less than his own assumed maximum of #237; and in another he says, " we have offered your company the maximum pay allowed by law," which maximum pay, his own letters prove to be $300' Thus he calls less than two hundred and thirty-seven dollars equal to three hundred dollars. Again, when the mails were not so heavy, nor so large as they now are, nor the expenses so high, the Department, under Mr. Tyler's administration, paid this company $19,600 for transporting the mails. Cave JohnHun insists upon their receiving only $11,222 for services increased in importance and difficulty, and mails increased in weight and bulk. But as to the weight and bulk, Cave Johnson sagely remarks that that has nothing to do with the matter. Here are his very words: "There is nothing in the suggestion that you take more mail matter. The difference in the weight and size of the mails is too inconsiderable to have any influence on the contracts." Thus he offers a small sum in payment of increased services, when they have been in | * 1.L.LU .A/tAitrinn in flip luet f#?W VPRrs H uic uuiui wi i vi/vi?* fc > ?iiiv much larger sum for a less amount of services ! The grave folly, the impudent incapacity of Save Johnson, were never more manifest than in :his correspondence, in which he betrays a missrable, niggardly attempt to evade a fair and lonorable payment, and shows that his determination is to throw the mails into confusion, and ierange all the business and correspondence of the country, for the paltry object of saving four or five thousand dollars, against all right and reason. Of the facts we have here slated, there can be no doubt; and yet we are not sure but that we like Cave Johnson, for these and other reasons and considerations. We go even further, and are prepared to maintain that Cave Johnson is one of the most dstinguished men of his age. lie promises, in fact, to be a benefactor to the human race, and is already the wonder of post office civilization upon this continent. In former ages ol the world, great revolutions, beneficial to civilization, have been accomplished by genius, by patriotism, by virtue, by mighty talents. Cave Johnson promises to reverse the whole picture, and to bring forth the most important resultri and the most wonderful measures by stupidity and stubborness?by littleness of mind, in every possible way in which we can view it through a telescope. The gross incapacity which he has exhibited in the management of the Post'Oflice Department, may happily lead a wise and sensible Congress to abolish or to modify the whole system, and to adopt one according to the new principles of the age, applied in a new way. Since the time of John McLean, the Postaflice Department lias been degenerating in the same way that horses, shallops, and sloops degenerate and disappear before steamboats and railroad cars. Barry, the Postmaster, was bad jnough ; Kendal] was tolerable; Granger was gentlemanly and negligent; but Cave Johnson comprehends in his management every species of uburdity and boorishness, both as an officer and at a chief. Yet we firmly believe that out of this bad management will grow and spring up one of the greatest improvements of the age. For the last two mwnths alone, we have collected the following table, us merely a specimen of the blunders of the Post office Department:?

Thin is only a sample of what w?r intend to collect and prepare, exhibiting the conduct of the Postmaster Ceneral to the corning Congress. We shall employ probably two or three clerks during the next week or ten days, to prepare our Annuai. Post Ofpiob Kkpokt to Congress, and we shall send it in simultaneously with that of the Post Master < leneral. That honorable body will then have the whole matter before it, and we trust that in their determination they will avail themselves of the present improved state of practical science in this country, as shown in the miraculous deeds of the electric telegraph. The people cannot stand the blundering of the Post oHice Department any longer. Vet it lias been beneficially managed by Cave Johnson, in tlic j wny we pointed out; for it will lead every one to I hail the change; and he will unconsciously be the cause of the new system being inken up by Congress, and established over the whole country What then would be the results? The whole republic would be united with Washington, j | or Saw York, from its extremities to its centre, and again, from its centre to the extremities; so I that a man who wished to write to New Orleans, might transmit to his agent there what he wanted to say, and receive a reply in half an hour. Look at the results which havfe already been attained by telegraphic communication. Look at the astonishing result in the express from Lexington, with Henry Clay's speech! This whole republic, in all directions, would be united together by the electric telegraph, under the regulation of government; there would be a new system, a different kind of Post Office Department, throwing out ot use altogether the usual mode of friends, or men of business, communicating with eich other. At the same time, the present Post Office Department itself could be changed into a sort of parcels delivery company, or department, for the purpose of sending by railway or steamboats all parcels of a certain magnitude, as well as newspapers, periodicals, magazines, &c. But the whole letter mail should be thrown into the shape ot telegraphic communications throughout the country. The results of suclf a system upon social life, upon mind, upon parties, upon the whole Union, upon the durability of the government, would be more important than any one can form a conception of at this moment. When Fulton invented the steam engine, every body said that steam, applied as a me^ns of communi cation, would unite the whole eountry together in one compact whole. When stenm gave way to railroad*, the same remark was made, and similar effects were looked for trom them. But how much slower they are, as instruments of communication, than the electric telegraph ! By means oftelegraphic connections, the whole country, in all its parts and all its different capitals?every city, every town, at every extremity?is thinking the same thoughts, receiving the same ideas, throbbing with the same perceptions, and feeling the same sentiments, at one and the same moment. This is the prospect held out by the adoption of such a system by the coming Congress; and we believe the country is indebted to the folly and blundering conduct of the postmaster-general, by way of Iub furthering and proving the necessity for the creation of such a system. Therefore, Cave Johnson ought to receive the utmost praise for his meanness, his folly, his blundering, his invariable obstinacy, and constant attempts to squeeze a few dollars out of those who carry his mails. We hope Congress will not omit this subject in its investigations, and if Cave Johnson should want a pension, let him' nave it, ana scna nim oaen to iennessee. we shall certainly get_from the immortal Knox, hatter, 128 Fulton street, one of his best beaver hats, and send it to Cave, enclosed in a band box, as a present and a proof of the value we attach to his public conduct in proving the necessity of a change. Don't forget, boy; Knox, 128 Fulton st. Later phom New Grenada.?By the schooner General Marion, from Santa Martha, we are in receipt of accounts from this republic, up to the 10th,0ctober.jfl The steamer Magdalena, which, it will be remembered, was built in this city last summer, and sent out from hence for a company in New Grenada, had more than fulfilled the anticipations of those who are concerned in her. The purpose for which the Magdalena was intended was the navigation of the R iver Magdalena; and she performed her first trip in very good time, vizbetween Santa Martha and Nare, in IBS hours and 37 minutes of running time. We regret that th? papers we have received do not give the distance between these two points ; but fi*A?n tli* pnenm i nmct tlipv nucu r?n t h a (win ?.m> waft last evening to have been presented to Mr*.

This enterprise of navigating the iVTagdalena by steam, huu opened a market for a very large and rich cMj.itry in the interior, which has hitherto been shut off' almost completely from any commercial intercourse with the coast. We perceive among the various improvements going on in New Grenada, that a newspaper has been established.in Santa Martha; its name is La Gaceta Mercantil, and it is quite a neat affair, and contains some interesting articles on the affairs of New Grenada, which we may translate hereafter. Fremont's Trial ?This affair is getting tiresome; it seems like " much ado about nothing." Thus far the impression left upon every uprejudiced mind is, that Col. Fremont ought to have obeyed his immediate military superior, and not to have made claim to be appointed Governor of California. Gen. Kearny's testimony is plain, distinct, clear, and determined. The attempts of Col. Benton and his associates, by cross-examining the witness to involvehim in contradictions, smacks a good deal of the petty objects of little lawyers. The impression made upon us is, that such a case never ought to have been brought to trial. Fremont ought to have apologised to Gen. Kearny, and the whole matter ought to have been settled, instead of being blazed about the world as it now ia. City IntcUllgencc. Tnr.

This reasoning of the apostle ia lounded on a very clear principle. Ood ia easentlally one, and ia alae essentially true. Truth, in like manner is essentially one, and cannot be found in opposite and oontradiotory systems; therefore, the apostle says. "One Ood, one Faith, one Baptism " The Christian religion is opposed to every other system of religion, and every other system of religion is antagonistic to it. it therefore follows, if the Christian religion be true, every other system must be essentially false. There are many who admire the Christian religion on acoount of the sublimity of its doctrines, the purity of its morals and ths majesty of its worship, and who rrjttot it on account oi its uncompromising intolerance. We maintain that this intolerance is the fairest feature of (he Chris: ian system, and thai without It we could not uphold it as the religion of the God of Truth. Take away this intolerance, and mark how the deiit will argue. If the Christian religion, he will say, be essentially true, it will not tolerate any opposite system; but seeing that it does tolerate all other systems, 1 oannot admit its truth. You must hold it, then, my brethren, as a fixed principle, that when man is indilferent as to any lorm or religion. He nil no religion wnaiever Opposite and contradictory syatems cannot all be true When, then, any one says to me that he believe* that all are equally true, he asserts what he knows In bis heart to be fal-e la this fair ? Is tbls candid ? No, my brethren, and yet thia is the lesson which false and modern philosophy teaohes It tells mo that I ought to be a Christian at Rome, a Mahometan ?t Constantinople, and a Jew in the synagogue; that it is more oonsistent with the dictates of common sen?e to fall in with a belief of those among whom we lire, than to aet up our own opinion in opposition to theirs; that, this spirit of dogmatism ha* been, and will to the end of time be productive fcf great mlfchlef This, my friends. Is all declamation, and tbls declamation will never induce me to lookUpon lndiflrrentiam with afavorablu eye We are not to purchase peace at the espenBe of truth. Why speak to ine of the social beauty of this system, whan I know that from one page of the Ooapel I oan learn more conceraing my duty towards lied, towarda my neighbor, and towarda myaelf, than I oan from all the volumea of the philosophers? This heavenly book, or rather its divine author, nays, " Love your neighbor aa yourself," and " As you would that men would do unto you, do you unto theia in like manner." This heavenly lesson teaches me to cultivate peace with all men; but it does not teach me to call that right which I know to be wrong, and to oall that true whioh I know to be false As a Christian, I believe that Jesus Christ Is the Messiah; I cannot, therefore, believe with the Jew that the Messiah is yet to oome. Aa a Christian, I believe that Christ is Ged; I oannot, therefore, believe with the Mohametan that he la a mere man. Aa a Catholic, I believe that the churoh of Home ia the church of Chriat; 1 oannot, therefore, go to the oonventiole and say that she is the scarlet lady of the Apocalypse. This, my brethren, would be theological tolerance, and you evidently see that this tolerance is downright apostacy. Of this apostasy, all those well meaning Christians who are sticklers for this tolerance, aie guilty. We would simply s>ty to those that Christ himself was Intolerant. " He wha does not believe, aays he, will be damned" The Apostles were intolerant The holy fathers were intolerant. The general oounoils were intolerant, from the first, which was held at Nice, in the year 3-25, to the last, holden at Trent, in the yeur 1863 All maintained and adhered to this dogma of theological Intolerance. They well knew that their adherence to it would bring on them the severest persecutions; yet thin did net move tbem from their duty. Aceordlngly we nee tbem hurling their anathemas against Arius. at Nice; against Nestoriui, at Kphesus; against Macedonius, at Constantinople; and against Eutiches, at Chuloedon; they have also anathematized the Protestants

at Trent. The church could not hare acted otherwise, my brethren: vere she to hare acted otherwise, then it would follow that her children, who, with herself, would believe that Christ was God, could, with Arius, believe that ha was not Ood. Then it would follow that they would believe with herseil t,bat there is a purgatory, and with Luther, that it is a fable. Now this would be preposterous. In this event, how oould I oall her, with St. Paul, '-the pillar and the ground of truth. "Common sense would compel ma to oall her the pillar and the ground of error. One Ood,then, one faith and one baptism. In view of this text, and of what I have said, will any man say that the boasted " Evangelical alliance" can be the Churoh of Christ, '' the pillar and the ground of truth," or any part or parcel thereof? Whoever would say so, has read his Bible to little advantage. Open the Oospel according to St. John In the tenth chapter we read the parable of the sheepfold In this parable, Christ emphatioally says?" My sheep, hear my voice " The meaning is, my followers, hear my doctrine. But Christ did not teach oontradietory doctrines; therefore we are not his sheep if we profess contradictory doctrines. Again, in this same parable, he says that there must be one fold, and one shepherd, meaning theroby, that members of his told, or church, must be under one general government. Observe, now, bow beautifully and energetically St. Paul describes the unity of this rhurch, which he calls the hody of Christ. In his first epistle to the Corinthians, 12th chap , he says: *' Vou are the body of Christ, and members of member," and he goes on to say that " as the body having many members, is one," so it is evident that the maDy members constitute one body. Here the Apuetle compares the union that exists between the members of the mystical body of the human body But tbiH union constitutes perfect unity; therefore the union between the members of the body of Christ must also be perfect. Now, will any man in his senses tell me that thisallianoe between sectarians of every denomination comes up 10 this idea of unity Riven by St Paul ? Will any man say that the union o? the churchman and the socinian, of the calvanist and met ho J 1st, of the independent and ranter, can be typified, even remotely, by the union that exists between the members of the human body ? No, my brethren; and until this sacred volume tells me that Christ constituted his church of opposite and Conflicting seots, one of which will believe that to be orthodox which the other holds to be heteredox-one of which offers to the Almighty a worship as holy which the other condemns as impious?one of which adheres to a discipline as established by Christ which the other rejects as a usurpation?until, 1 say, the sacred volume tells me this. I shall not believe that this club of d.s< Renters can be the church of Christ or any part or parcel thereof. But may it not be H&id that those aeots believing in Jesus Christ and In the other leading articles ot faith form one universal church, however different their forms of belief and modes ol discipline? .This, my brethren, is a common remark, and is also the souroe of all the in differentism which overspreads the land Let us reasou a little on it. We know that the United States and Kngland are governed by the same common law; will it. therefore, be said that the United States and Kngland constitute but one kingdom ' You all know that th?y do not, and you all know the reason; a severe logic therefore, impels us to Bay that the different forms i f belief 01 those societies and their ministerial independence of each other, are destructive of the unity which is so essential to the church of Christ. But ?fter all, iB this unity so essential as is asserted? Let St. Paul answer. In his epistle to the Uallatians, the apostle ranks heresies and sects" among the works ot the flesh, which exolude from the kingdom of God. This teaching ot the apostle evidently bespeaks the nroesslty of unity lu the ohuroh of Christ Do not ima gine that this is the exclusive doctrine of the Catholic church Calvin teaohes this doctrine in all its rigor in the 4l h book of his Inrtitutea. Beasa teaohes it In tbe 6th chapter of his oout'esslon. The Huguenot cateohism teaches it. Tbe Hootch, in their confession of faith. made in the year io'.io, teacn it. rne onurcn or c.ngiand teaches it in her I8'.b article Let no one imagine, s?ys the famous Bishop Pierson, in his exposition of the cre?d 'that Christ established two ways to H Javen; so far from it, that as well might they expeot to be saved frcm the waters of the deluge who were not in the ark, as for Christians to expeot to be saved out of the true ohuroh of Christ " This is hard language from a Protestant Indeed, the dogma is inconsistent on 1'rotsstant principles. We all know that the Protectant principle: "Take the scripture, and interpret them as you pleaae," is not productive nor conservative of unity When ttie stored volume is wrested from the hands ot the lawful pastors?when they are no longer looked upon as living tabernacles containing the law and the prophets, tao oburch of Christ cannot continue to be one?It must sink into a Babel of confusion. It is an historical fact, that from the tl .e of Luther's Hpostacy, in 1317, until his leath, In 1940, there were no lees than two hundred duly organizxil and conflicting societies Under the influence of this principle the mind floats on u tide of uncertainty, as the weatherbeaten bark veers before every bia?t; it is imp-lied by the vehemence of wild declamation and seduced by every form of error. Lord Bolingbroke, in the 4th ol his Philosophical Ksnays.Hays:?" We have emancipated ourselves fruid spiritual tyrauuy and fallen into spiritual anarchy." Indeed, our Irish (iraltan was a much more consistent Protestant, when he said " that he could not think that the kingdom of heaven was like a poor man's housr in a bi/g, wi h but one single path leading to it " My brethren, 'Lis is really a serious question, and we must treat it with all manner of accuracy. Is it true, then, that each one can be saved lnhiiowu ncct? Or to be more explicit, is the belief in Jesus Christ and in the other ?n inlt.li r\t th? f.ratul Aiifflcient for salvation? If a belief in Christ and in the other artie'es of tne oreeil were sufficient tor salvation, then it would follow that all the ancient herettos were unjustly condemned, and thai notwithstanding their condemnation and obxtinate adherence to their errors, they lived and died In a state 01 salvation? that the orthodox fathers who condemned them, we.-e influenced by ignorance, prejudice and other unworthy motives. Let us take a rapid glance at tnose (jifNrent heretiua The Arians believed in Je u? Christ, and In the other article* of the creed. Thoy believed that be was the only eon of (iod, born of the Virgin Mary, and our Lord Vet, ai they did not believe that he wax conaubstantiai with the Father, they were condemned by the council of Nloe In the year 3 JA The Arlans rejected this doctrine of consubstantiallty, for the very same reasons that Protectants reject eonsub tantiation. They did not And the word consubstantlal in the scriptures. And yet. notwithstanding this speoles p'ea, tbey were condemned as heretics by the church ot Hod Nestorius believed in Jesus Christ, and in the ar tiole* of the creed, and yet he waa condemned by the council of Kphesus. because be taught that as there were two natures in Christ, there were also two persons Macedonlus believed in Jesus Christ, and In the other articles of the creed, and yet he was condemned at Constantinople, for maintaining that the Holy Ghost was less than the Hon. K. Utlches believed in Cnrist, and in the other articles of the creed, and yat he waa condemned by the council of Chalcedon, tor maintaining that t.he human nature of Christ was absorbed by ills divine nature These examples go to abow that If a be lief in Christ and in the other artioles of the creed, were alone sufficient for salvation, those heretics were unjustly condemned, and that notwithstanding; their obstinate adherence to their errors, they lived and died in a state of salvation, and that the fathers who condemned then were Ignorant, maiioious, and unchristian. Open ecoleslaatioal history and you will find that the primitive Christians suffered every tiling, even death itself, rather than adopt any rf those condemned errors, but if holding the itellel la Jesus Christ, and in the other article* or the creed, with these i errors tbey oouW bar# been ?a?*d,was not their conduct truly unnwoMbli ? Open now th? Gospel, ud you will Hod that oar Divine Redeemer oaU? heretio* " false Eropheta' and " thieves and robb?rs " What are wit to ifer from tbeaa word* t Simply thin, tbat heretio* are odiou* in bit sight With a belief In the Uoepel, ud in the other articUa of the creed, there oan be rery great brretlca. hi the example* I have given euffloiently prove; ud yet Protectants themselves will acknowledge. tbat if aDy one were to rile up in this assembly and deny the inspiration of the Holy Soripture*, that such one would be a heretic, though there is no mention of the Scriptures in the creed St. Augustine says that he is a heretic who obstinately adhere* to au error ualnit faith, and that man of God. Luther, condemns the sacramentarians to the pit of hell, fcr one single error. il In vain." says be " do the Yacrameutarians hoist of their belief In the Father, Sou and Holy Ohost. whilst with bla^phuruout mouth they deny this article of the real presence of Christ iu the Kucharlst " In the Acts of tbe Apostles we read these words: " You shall be witnesses of me in Jerusalem, iu Judea, in Suumria, and even to tbe uttermost parts of the earth Here you see t?iat Christ sent his Apctitles i*s substantial witnmse* of himself. Tblnk you, then, tbat having chosen them as such, he will bold them guiltless who refuse to believe them * No, my brethren, and accordingly we read In the Ooapel of St Luke, 10th chapter, these awful and si.nifloant words: ''Hethat heareth you,hearetb me: he that despiseth you, dtsplaeth me." Out they who say that each one can be saved In hia own sec'., do not hear Christ'* witnesses?the rulars of the cuholic church The Inference la, they despise Christ, and him who sent him. The rulera of the churchof Cbrist are notalone hia witnesses; they are also our spiritual governors. If our governors, we are bound to obey them. St l'aul, in hi* epistle to the Hebrew*, say*," obey your prelates " But tney who adhere to their respective sects, do not observe this command of tbe apostle Tbe conclusion I leave to yourselves. When we consider the weakness of the human understanding, we will, in our dispassionate momenta, acknowledge tbe necessity of a sure guide in those mutters that are tar above our natural coniorakeiislon Reason tells up that such aa is our guide. such will bo our faith If our guide ba blind, we. bj adli-rir^ to bioi, will fall !uto tbe pit with him. If our guide ba steady aud enlightened, we ba*e k rational presumption that wear* in the right path. Christ, in bin meroy and goodness, b:ift given us thin guide in tb? church ?" the pilUr and thi ground of truth ''?the church instruotrd in all truth bv tbe Huly Ghost.?the church, with which he will be " teaching all nations, even to the end of the world. '' Vou evidtntly see the claims which your Redeemer has to your gratitude and obedienco That great light of the Christian church, St. Augustine, declares that he wouid not believe in the gunnel were he not led to this belief by tbe authority of the Catholio oburoh Not but that this great man had every veneration forthegospel; but he knew well that that alone was the tru gospel for which the chuioh would vouch. Ve have o authority for the integrity, tbe authenticity, and inspiration ot the sacred volume, but that of of tbe ohurch. Take this away, and the fabrio tumbles to the ground. But protestants reject the authority of tbe church. IIow, therefore, oan they have faith .' and without faith, how can they expect to be saved .' seeing that thn Apostle rays, " Without faith it is impossible to please God " I presume you will nil acknowledge that the A| ostle speaks of true faith only But true faith is one It cannot, therefore, be found in opposite and conflicting sects; and, if not, how oan such snots be pleasing to Ood ? But onnuot tbe protestant have divine faith ? No, my brethren. The proUstant leana on his own judgment for the formation of his faith Or he leans on the judgment of his preachers. Or he leans on the authority of tbe private spirit, speaking inwardly to his soul. Maay, with very great simplicity and exultation. say that they lean on the word of (iod. B ut the question is about the meaning of the word of God. The protestant says it is for him. I say it is for me. The protestant rejects tbe authority of the ohurch. Who. then, is to decide between us Vou therefore, see that he mast fall back on the helps I have already enumerated. Let us now examine if those helps will enable him to make an act of divine faith, which is a positive and infallible assurance if the truth of what be believes Common sense will tell him that his own judgment is not infallible. How then can he be infallibly certain of the truth of those things which are Hot in themselves immediately evident ? Again, the Protestant ea>s that he believes tne Scriptures, but the Scriptures say, " Omnia homo mmdax " Kto y man is a liar, and in view of this bow can he place implicit reliance on his own judgment ? His preachers?they are not Infallible. We s<iy they have erred and do err. Protestants acknowledge the same. Luther said that the saoramentarians erred, and the sacramentarians assert that L?ther himself erred, not alone on the Eucharist, but on maby other points. How, on such authority, can the Protestant make an ?ct of divine faith ? The private spirit?this has led numbers into the wildest errors and extravagancies We ctnnot caution you against it too emphatically. Indeed, the hi ly Apostle, St. John, eautions us against it. '-Dearly beloved," says he,"try every spirit, for many falie teachers have gone forth into the world.'' How are they to be tried? By comparing their doctrine with th1 publio teaching of the churo i which is guided by the Holy Ghost if they accord wii h her teaohiogs, then they are ri^ht. If they do not. then they are spirits of error sent by the enemy of your salvatioa to destroy you. But are not the consequences of this doctrine frlghtfulin the extreme? This doctrine evidently stints the Almighty in the exercise of his attributes of meroy and goodness. " Why should this weak and erring hand Presume thy bolts to throw, And deal damnation round the land, On each I j?dge tby foe ?" If fhiMatintiR VTA are bound to follow the tcunh. Ing of our Lord and Master, and of bin holy upostles Now Christ ban distinctly paid," Ho that do?n not believe will be damned " And St Paul Bays, tbiii" Heresies and seets exclude from the kingdom of Uod.'' Were a deist to make this observation, we would reply that he himself has to encounter the name difficulty Keuon tell* him that there in but one Uod; reason tells him that 14 a monstrous deordinatiou to transfer the worship which is due to tbe only trus and living Gad to tocksaDd stones and creeping things, aud his reason will hold idolaLorv accountable to God for this perversiou of reason, unless he looks upon man as an unaccountable being. The generality of deists admit that man is an accountable beiog. There are some lew who do not. and among those we place Marmontel, the author of " Belisariim," for in this book I find that he planes notorious ldnlatorg in heaven. Let us now bring those remarks to the test oi sound philosophy and theology. Philosophy tells me that they are without soliciting?philosophy teaches that the author of my being has absolute dominion over all the faculties of my soul, and thit he can no more divest himself of this dominion, than he can cease to be God If, then. God propose anything to my belief, and that 1 refuse to believe, I am guilty ol an act of rebellion, tor which my reason tells me I must atone. Theology tells me that wnen anything is proposed to my belief, as an artiole of faith, that thing must have eeti revealed by God. Should 1 then relust to bel-evo that article whioh is proposed to me by the duly authorised organ, with all its motives oi credibility 1 refuse to believe God himrelf. Or 1 say by my conduct, that God is not always to be believed Now this is blasphemy, and this is the blasphemy of which heretios are guilty. Say, are the) excusable ? We may classify those who are out of tht church In the following order: ldolators, Infidels. Heretics. an J Schismatics. Reason telis us that we oaonol justify idolaters Infidels?by infidels. I mean those wh> nave never heard of Christ or ol his church?now sunt infidelity is negative ana is no sin. St Thomas tells us that negative infidelity is not sinful Such infidels therefore, will not be oondemned for their infidelity, bul tlit-y will be condemned for their murdeisand othei abominations, which we caunot justify St Thomai says, that if such persons adhere to the dictates of tb< natural law, that God will even by a miracle put thair in the way of salvation We are by no means to imagine, my brethren, that Uod oonfines his grace to us ex clusiveiy God does extend sufficient graoe to all men seeing that St John calls Christ "the light which en llghtuneth every man oomina into this world " St. Au guetlne. in hia baok, ealled the City of God, says ' the at all times there were many among the geutiles wh< belonged to the olty of God."?

Mr Pitt has made himself muster of the part, and delighted ] the audience last evening, with a beautiful performance . of it. Mra.

The beautiful points which thia much admired ohaiacter abounds witb, were admirably developed by this talented lady, whom yon cjur.ot separate f/om the part she appears in?no matter what it is. Thia great essential, Mrs. Shaw possesses in a great degree, and she never loses it from the rise to the fall of the curt tin. She identifies herself with it, and by deep study and oonsiderabte experienco, added to a thorough knowledge of stage action, displays the very character of the author's conception. There were many fine pieees of aoting in Mr. Marshall1!) Adrastus, and alro in Mr. Clarke's Phooion. ''Romeo and Juliet" is in the bill for this evening, with snob a oast as will do it ja?tlce; to whioh will be added the new comedy of the "Revolution." Chatham Thkatbe.?The nautical drama The Min-. nte Gun at Sea," went off last evening at the Chatham ' very well; and the house was filled almost to overflowing. Mr. Heild and Mr. Hunt are becoming very popular, if we judge from the applause with whloh they are greeted every evi ning. They are excellent actors. : The living tableaux, by the new company of Model Arti iste, at this establishment, number some of the most ! beautiful specimens of the human form that we have I ever seen, and improve nightly in thAlr representations.

There is a kind of excitement about the dashing feats of the equestrian performer j which ch trms every one, especially those who h<tve not yet ! fully arrived at man's or woman's estate, the jolly laugh : and ''lure we are again'' of those oomic.il fellows, tbo ! downs, sounds merrily to them, and the cuts of the whip ; which the ringmaster so liberally bestows on them by way of answer to their jokes on lim, semis to add point to their wit, though we have often thought that the | clowu must occasionally find theie rebuff* rather galling; ' but as it's all in fun, ho takes it kindly like a genilo \ clown as he is. To-night, the equestrians, male and fej tnile, vaulters, comic singers, horses, clowns, ringmaster, I whip and all. will give full swing to the r capabilities,and as Kemp winds up the evening with his funny pantci mime, we have no doubt all their visiters wlllenjsy them { selves. Christy's Mixstreli.?If the roof of the Mechanics' > Hall had not been firmly constructed, It would certainly ' have been raised from its position long since, by the ap| plause bestowed on Christy's Minstrels, who have atI tracted overflowing houses every night for some weeks past Without disparaging any other company of negro , minstrels, we must say that it would be a hard matter to ' exoel them in their peculiar line. The burlesque lecture on phrenology would split the sides of an anobprite with.laughter; but that is but a tithe of the amusement! they* give every evening They will bold forth again this evening at tne same place, to whioh we recommend all who are affeoted with the '-blues," to go and be cured. Sarle Harmonists.?After being endorsed by the dis. ticguished statesman of Kentucky, it will be hardly nooiisnary for us to say any thing in praise of this sable ] company of sable harmonists ; but we oanoot refrain from adding our testimony to their excellence.

Hauskti Family ?This family, who, by the by, are relatives of tbe Ilainer family, whom our readers doubt less reoollcot, are now before the publio, and to-night give a conoert at the Tabernacle. Their style of iing; ing is similar to that of the Kainers, and the bill thfy present oonsists of a variety of pleasing duets and quartettes in the German language. The pleasing style in ; which these singer* render their music will doubtless 1 attract a numerous audience ; and our foreign popula' i tion, particularly thoHe from the north of Europe, will ; ' without doubt be oa hand to bear the songs wttich will recall so forotbly their recollections of home. Livmn Statum.?The group of the ' Lute Hayer" is deoidedly one of the mos: graceful and beautiful pieces 1 that we have oyer seen.

All these men were secretly allied - 1 to each other, although publicly strangers, in order to I ' procure credit, which they succeeded in doing to an 1' I immense amount. However, lust spring the crtditors of c these operators accidentally discovered something wrong, when, after holding a meeting in order to inves? 1 tigate the solvency of the parties, it was resolved by the i creditors to compel these men to go into bankruptcy, 1 according to an act of Parliament made and provided i in suoh cases. This" was done, and a (notice served I upon each of these men, declaring them bankrupts ? Receivers were duly appointed, and the 6th day of July 1 la-t was the time designated by the creditors to have the whole affair investigated These men finding themI selves cornered drew largely on tlie b nks, and played i into the hands of each other, by which process they <iht faiued between three and four hundred thousand dollars from the banks and creditors; packed up ail the , ij.xiks belonging to the concern, together with oth-r evi' denes of debt, and on the 19ih of Juue, the month pre1 vious. all four took passage iu thu ( aledonla, at Liver1 |>ool, fjr this country; arriving at Boston about tho 4th I of July Upon the creditors as ertainiug the where| nbouts of these men, legal proceedings were at once int stituted, and Mr. Thomas Bryou, an agent duly i 1 authorized by the creditor*, Wl'h an English officer, ari iiv.-d here about four weeks auo, with ail the necessary f documents for the arrest of these parties The aid of - I two ot our old and experienced officers, Gilbert F Hays aiid William H Stevens, was prrcured, and Immediate ' step" were taken to secure the parties, the matter hav.ng been laid before Justice Drinker, who issued warrants | Cor their arrest These officers proceeded west, and u few days ago they Succeeded In capturing three of the ] accused parties?two at Chicago and the other at Mil ' i wankie from whom a large amount of he money has been I recovered Th? parties are exp. cted daily to arrive in I i i.OiA nitv when ihe ivhnl*4 matter wih mirlamo a full in 1 I ve?tlg*iir,n by the magistrate j (.A < rga uj Grantl l.arc ny.?OfBotr* Conglilln ani " Van Riper, of the 17lit ward, armt d, yesterday, a wo> man calling herself Ann Paysley, alias Mrs Ouell. ou a 1 charge of stealing a (old chain, cross, and four gold tinner ring*, ti g>-thtr with t?o broatt pius, valu-d id all at H00. belonging to Mm. l'urney residingat the coi n- rof ' I 40ihttruet and 6th Avenuo Jusllce i irnpuou detained her for a fuither htailng r j Straling Chitti ng ?
