THE HERALD. NEW-YORK, WEDNESDAY, JAN. 20, 1836. .*mm uni.1.1 ? nvt.x. rl Af f ilKS. Yesterday afternoon the long talked of Despatch ol the Die de Brogue to M. Pagkot, dated in Pari#, 17th June, 1835, was published by two of the printing offices in Wall street. This is the letter of which the National Intelligencer has spoken so much of late. The astounding fact of a disclosure of this despatch being made by the French Envoy, indicates a degree ol feeling in that government more deep and bitter than we had any conception to exist. After reading thu letter, and seeing the insolent position it takes in relatioa to this country, there can be no doubt but war between the U. States and France is inevitable, unless the English government become a mediator. Mr. Pageot arrives to-day and takes apartments at the City Hotel, Broadway. He forwarded in advance however in the most undiplomatic manner?impudently thrusts upon the public we might say, in anticipation ef the Message, a letter ( M. Broglie's which for hauteur, assumption and insolence, exceeds any thing that ever was addressed to our government since the time of the notorious M. Ge*et who had the effrontery to appeal from President Washington to the people in the dispute between this government and the French Directory. Is onr language harsh ? Do we misconstrue the terms of the Despatch ? Do we nuderstaud the import of words ? N(??no. We only state, in a subdued manner, the natural feelings which every American? every patriot?every freeman must experience in reading the letter itself. For the first lime it is now revealed to this astonished cojntrv that llie Fr*n<*h ,? ? ?=?? ?pV.U it as a right?a national right?to interfere wh?n tliey choose, and take exceptions to the language used by the President in uddressin? both Houses of Congress. - Suck a rirkt," says Broglie, u the Constitution o) the United States can neither abolish. modify, nor restrict"?thus at once telling the p?ople of the United Stales, " you must modify your Constitution to suit our tastes, otherwise, instead of paying you what we owe you?we will aend a dee! and fight you into it." By this insolent assumption, the French Government claims the old feudal right of Suzeraia over the Uaited States? a right to dictate langauge to the President and both Houses of Congress?a right to teach manner* to a free people whose commerce was plundered and robbed by their cruisers. The Despatch extends to three long, stupid, incoherent, columns?alternately insolent and sophistical? now begging the question?now abandoning it. Amid the mass of gross absurdities and misrepresentations is the admission of the Due de Broglie that no particular phrase gave the offence : * If we eiamiue in detail the message of the President of the United States (I mean that part of it which concerns the relations brtween the U. States and France) it will, possibly, be found, that Massing successively from phrase to phrase, none will be met that cannot bear an interpretation, more or lesa plausible,?none of which, strictly speaking, it cannot be said that it is a simple expose of such, or such a fact true in itself, or the Assertion of such or such a right which no one contests, or the perforuiaixv of such or such an obligation imposed on the President by the very nature of his functions. There will certainly lie found several in which tKa n t\f imfMa/>kiniv tkn * ^ ..-pr-vw...^ ?wc lium t?i luc r rmcri uo* vernment, or of acting upon it through menace or inintimidation, is more or less disavowed." * u We do not, 'says (he Minister,' eontend about this or that phrase, thin or that allegation, this ?r that expression ; ire contend about the intention itself which hat dictated that part of the mettafe.' Can any thing exceed this insolence ? Here, indeed, ia a new and admirable process of extracting out of a public document, a eon-, true live insult,of which, in another part of the same letter, it is admitted that the French Executive " is net commanded by the Chamber to ask explanations, but merely supposes they will receive some." It is utterly impossible to give vent, in one breath, to the various feelings of indignation which must rise up in every intelligent and patriotic mind at reading this superlatively insolent despatch?insolently published by a French Envoy now at the City Hotel, in order to ereate exasperation and tumult in this city and ilieir country, and to destroy the just influeuce of the President's Message. We hope and trust th? honest in uiguaiion ui me [leopie win noi our?i ionn?mat a pro- i per dog,e? of national dignity wjll restrain them, until J he shall hava Je^arieJ from our shores. It will then be time to call public meetings and so into the war?if 'her will hare it so?with all the fore?, vigor, nnd resource* of the country. W e have more to wr on this subject.

Wim'j Wall Strxet Dkfalcatioss.?a I Victim or Sldcctiow.?It was with pain, regret, and almost with tear* in oureyes, that we published yesterday the awfat disclosures made by Henry Lynch, Esq. of Col. Webb's Wall sttwet detVuutioos. The atnount of the deposit*?the sfcange nature of the transactions ?the position of Mr. Webb?the character of the Courier and Enquirer?its recent course on certain public | question*, were all brought up in the public miiul in connection with that statement and produced an excitement?the like of which we have seldom seen. " Have you read the Expose ?" u Have yoH seen the story of Wehb's operationsV "Do read it, it is the moat awful I ever saw," were some of (he exclamations ' and remarks which met us in almost every quarter. Perhaps there never was such another expoaiuoa ?f Wall -treel operations since the famous Conspiracy trials in 1826, in which our old friend, Jacob Darker, figured so exquisitely. The recent penny concern of yoaug Wilding, it but as a drop of water in the ocean. If the curtain could be raised from Bartow & Webster's transactions, we might perhaps be enabled to discover i a paralell?but until that be done, the public will look i upon Mr. Lynch'* expose as the most interesting f?r i years past. But what is more astounding, is the fact that these disclosures are only a part, and a very small part, of the j , strange stock transactions with which our old associate has been concerned. If we were to hoist the green ' i curtain another reef or two, we could exhibit a scene or , two, in which some of the most distinguished charac- ; i tors in New York and Philadelphia would 6gure in the J strangest attitudes, and in the most astounding posi- I 1 | tions. Whether we shall or shall not, we will think of 1 for a while. It u about the United State* Hank.? j ; At present we shall be silent, but it may be uecesaary to open a fearful budget ere the year is out. Meantime, our nnlv rnn^iiipratinn ?? what r?n mm <U to help our old friend ? We have some faint recollections of pleasant days and nights of "auld lang syne," and in his day of calamity, our kindest of heart* will never desert him. Bring ray handkerchief, Tom, for my poor eyes. If every one turn against the Colonel, we shall stick lo him. He need fear nothing The Herald is half and half with hiui. 4 It appears from Mr. Lvnch's statement, that Mr. | Webb's loss in stock operations, front March 1834 to 1 this date, amount to $1)4,000 nearly. Of this amouul only about $7,000 have been paid, leaving a balance against him of $87,000. These loeees are on Philadelphia and Trenton, Morris Canal, and several other minor stocks. Mr. Webb, indeed, in the letter he pub- 1 lished on Monday,calls it " swindling," but this charge ! comes with a ?ery ill grace from him. He went iuto . Wall street witli his eyes open. When he made money he received it and buttoned it up in his pocket. How can he therefore, now wheel about and cry u swindling," " swindling." iWe are afraid this excuse will not answer his purpose. It appears too that he specalated on his own supeperior information?" / am <utnred from a certain | quarter" says he in his lettrr, dated at Philadelphia, January 13, 1835. What quarter? Any one can tell I what quarter without a moment's hesitation. The quarter 0/the V. S. Bank. The truth is, Mr. Webb with a tolerable good heart ' ; ?a bustling business manner?agreeable temper, and j so-so generous feelings, is most deficient in intellectual ! ballast of any man we ever knew?and we know him ' | thoroughly. As a person to execute other men's ideas be succeeds tolerably well?although even in that capacity he sometimes fails awfully, as in hU scrap* with Duff Green, and his movement to renew the U.S. Bunk j charter. Mr. Webb's principal apology and best excuse for these awful defalcations is?- I was persuaded and adj vised by Mr. Lynch to do so and so." He is perfectly right in attributing his misfortunes to the persuasion and advice of others. He is the unf"rtniMte victim, we admit, of seduction, but Mr. Lynch is not the first sedu- . cer. Mr. Lynch, unfortunately for himself, found our | old associate a street walker in Wall street, sedue?d ac- | 1 cording to order, completely without a character but with $52,725 in his pocket. How could any man resist ' such a temptation f During the years that we were 1 i associated with Mr. Webb, from 1829 to 1832, many 1 were (lie lessons of virtue and prudetK-e and patriotism, ' that we instilled iuto his youthful, aminble and suacep ' liblc mind. He was an apt schoiar as far m capacity 1 would go, and drank in the draughts of the Bennetto- ' i nian philosophy as far as he could. In truth he might ' ' have been another Joseph f?* purity and good lack?he wight have risen to be Chief Governor in the land of ' ; Eg? pt, if that old but gay deceiver Major Noah?that ' 1 worse than Potiphar's wife?had not come rampaging 1 | into the office awl captured our friend's heart at the prospect ?f a loan of $52,725 from the United States ' Rauk. Prince Henry could not withstand Falataff? how could Mr. Webb withstand Major Noa!i, Silas E. ^ Burrows, an 1 Nick Biddle united. Here is the original error of our old friend?and hero is his best defence. Colonel Webb is indeed a victim j of seduction?and Major Noah for that sin it weeping and wailing in sackcloth and ashes. That is th? reason , the Star is s? flat now a day*. A man with an uneasy j conscience cannot like or crack a joke and go along.? ^ As to the unfortunate victim, the Colonel, we shall not desert him in his misfortunes. Although lie now mnd* ( Lynched most awfully, there is y?t a Uru* prmitentia. We must find out tome quiet, well conductcd, paacoa- f bl? Magdalen Asylum for our unfortunate friend. By ( a few months discipline in such a valuable institution, f he may recover his equanimity?a moiety of his virtue ^ ?and a portion of those valuable qualities we formerly instilled into his youthful mind. As to his deficits w? tear Mr. Lynch will hav? to place them on the same | _ Profit and Lost atfceunton, which he has alroady placed > Bartow's, who ran away with $127,000 from Al- ^ hanv, and Wilding, who is to be tried next terns before , j Recorder Riker. % I, It j' Reeve appears at the Park to-night. . i [From lb* New Y^rk Sun W?fMerd?j ] We mi no itocht but tkose rkick keep onr heath vi riqkt!

Extraordinary disclosures ok a Nukxert.?0 our outside will be found a chapter from a recent boc published by Howe At Bates, Chatham street, eatiik the u Awful Disclosures of the Iilat.k Nunnery of Mm treal, by Maria Monk." We learn that Miss Moti was the daughter of a distinguished gentleman at Moi treal. She escaped recently from that city and can bere in company with a clerical geutleman and hypocrite, who has filched several thousand dollai from the public by misrepresentation.*. She is engage to be married to this gentleman, and has already pn dared a line boy "in advance of the mail." The pn ceeds of the book will no doubt " Fiirniih forth the marriage Another edition of the same story from a different qua ter was about to be published?but the present has gi the start of it entirely. Om this subject the Sun of Monday stated that uce tain Protestant Clergymen" had abducted Maria Mon the nun, ami carried her to New Jersey, "for the put pose of securing to themselves the possrsrion of h* manuscript aud ill profit*." We are authorised from the highast authority in thi city to pronounce the statement of the Sun a wilful an atrocious calumny, (t is not true that any Protests! Ministers have abducted Maria Monk?it is not tru that they have done so for (lie purjwtse of securing h< manuscript?it is not true that they have any desire I get its profits. These are wholesale and gratuitoi calumnies uttered bv the Infidel Sun, for the same pu pose it uttered its personal calumnies against Doctt Sleigh. It is to bring disgrace and contempt on ret gion. Oa every occasion this disciple of Fanny Wright a temnts to eive a secrei *mh in ?t~? through falsehood and calumny?either on Protestant < Catholic. With the most flagitious hypocrisy in th world, the Sun also endeavors to disgrace the Catlioii system by fastening upon it the atrocities of fanatics (1 for die darkest age. We know that the attempts t fasten upou modern Catholicity the systems of a dar age, are discountenanced and despised hv the intell gent and highly educated Irish clergy of this city.The atrocities of the nunneries in Canada spring froi the system of government which the Vatican has ei deavored to establish in this free land. It is entirely < Frenek and Italian art fin. In this city, Bishop Dt boi?, a mere creature in the hands of the Roman Poi tiffs, has been doing, and is doing all he can, to keep th Catholic Church in the United States under the irn tyranny of Rome and all her worst systems and dogma: Oil the contrary, the Irish Clergy here, and several < the Irish Boards of Trustees to the Catholic Charcltei have been aiming for years to establish the Independen of their Church against the power of Rome?to assei its entire separation from that sink of corruption?an to restore Catholicity to that purity of character uu rational form with which it shone forth in the world In fore it was blended with politic*,by Constentine the Ri man Emperor. The shocking attempts however, of the Sun to brin forward these matters, are for the purpose of involvin, in disgrace and contempt, the whole Christian svsterr be it Catholic or Protectant.
