. VOLUME I. NKVV-YORK, MOXDAV, MARCH 7, ISM. Mechanics' Movkmlnts?the Strikes.?Hotter our police head will be found a report of further proceedings of the journeymen tailors, and a queer mana-uvre of one of the Police officers (Bovryer,) played off upou ihrm. Notwithstanding its laughable nature, ?e feel borry that the cause? should still exist which separate the employer* and employed during this season of the year. Instead of a return to good s?-n?e and discretion, both parties?the misters una tue journeymen? are raptoi v losing the little temper the cold weather has left t'tem. Matters are sotting worse instead of better, awl the ucitement and the strikes nr* only spreading amimg all branches of business. It u time far the combined moral power of society to bear upon this question, am) to ascertain if there is no way to brinsr about an early settlement, satisfactory to all parties. The quantity of ? labor actually lo-tl to society during theae strikes, is at ' the lowest rate $40,000 per day, making nearly a quarter million of dollar* a week. A strike is almost as bad aa six fires, for it not only destroys labor and value, but it leaves both parties out of temper, out of pocket, and out at the elbows. From all we can learn, we are very much disposed to believe that two thirds of right and justice are on the side of the journeymen. Probably the other third the masters may have. If high prices ' aad high rents are to continue, the journeymen cannot < keep soul and body together at present ? ages. We, therefore, hope and trust that the master mechanics will mollify?think, gentlemen, of the salvation of your souls?read your Bibles?say your prayers?and raise at once the wages of journeymen moderately.? \Yeare persuaded the journeymen will willingly meet you half way. Why should both parties ba so obsti' nate. and stand out like heathens ? They belong both to the same family?ihe sain^ people?the same race? the sunie city. The only way to prevent excitement and riot is (o bring these strikes to any early settlement. Another New Religion.?I visited yesterday* a place of worship in Sullivan street, where the religious ceremonies of a new sect of religion are regularly celebrated every Sunday. They are even more extraordinary and curious than my friend Mr. Latourette's. To* morrow I shall give a full description of what I saw and heard. During the singing of a very pretty psalm, I cribbed one of their Hymn Books, which, after using a day or (wo, I shall faithfully return before next Sunday. I did not break any seals of any package. The ladies were quite good looking, no small item in matters of faith and practice?but the little girls were little angels. Highly Important.?The New Orleans Courier of the 18th ult.,contains the important information received from a creditable source, that the Camanche and several other tribes of Indians, had joined the standard and would aid the cause of Santa Anna against (lie Texians. Santa Anna w:m ilien Hilvntiriiif against San Antonio with a force of about 500 men and a small park of artillery. The Indian force amounts to about 10,000 warriors and 5000 cavalry. It is also slated on the best authority that the trcutv made between the Camanches and the U. S. had beeu destroyed. Santa Anna, it is said, had offered lite Indians as a bribe, the whole of Texas, if thay would assist him in recovering it. If this be true, it will require a large force on the frontiers of Louisiana and Arkansas to keep the Indians ill awe, and the poor Texians will have now a poor chance of gaining the independence for which they have been so long ^'uggling. Late from the Seat or War.?The Charleston Mercury of the *J6th ult. furnishes us with the annexed information from St. Augustine. Five hundred mounted men had arrived at Jacksonville oil the -l?i, and were to leave on the Next day for Picolatu. An expreas had just arrived from that place stating that Gen. Scott had arrived there?several reports, of course, were heard at P. on the day of Ilia arrival. The steamer Dolphin had sailed on a reconnoitering expedition with two companies of U. S. troops, and returned after four days absence not having seen any signs of the Indians. The inilitia of St. Augustioe had been disbanded by Gen. Eustis, and a very great excitement prevailed on that account, it being daetned a dis- . grace. i lie iri-<ll ? oiuuiccrs nan arrnrcu at iiriuaiiucL jmhiiUtion witliout speinsr mir si^ns of Indian*, except by their devastations. An officer of the U. S. A. who arrived at Kurt Brook on the 11th ult., writes that on the morning of the 13th, his coq>? were to start for Fort King. The force collected there ia about 1000 mep, of whom 450 are regulars and the balance militia. Gen. | Gaines had also arrived at Fort Brook. Indians had been s?en within L2 miles of the fort. No action had as yet taken place, but all were ready and anxious to meet the savages, and doubted not that success must attend them. Bloc kheads.?We are receiving numerous communications every day requesting us to correct the blun, dcrs?sometimes malicious, sometime* involuntary? of the blockheads who do the reports and the editorials of the Sun and Transcript. To-day Police Officer Huntingdon's communication will be found in another column. fO* Mr. John R. Scott will make his first appear ance at the Frenklin, to-morrow evening. HE H NEW-YORK, MONDAY, A: MOKtt AWFUL. L>ISCL.OSL'Kt:s. *Thr attempt, and not the deed, C< iilyuii li u*. But I remember ih>w, I jiii in (hi* earthly world, hrrr, tu do harm I? ufttn laudjble; lo do good, *om?lime-< Accouultd ifangt rou* f lf> 2>kaicsjfcar<. The recent deveiopeinent* made by Nits Recti t? Boston, Mademoiselle Monk of .Montreal, Colonel Stone of .New York, Madame RomjmmmI Culliertsou of New Hampshire, illustrating the lives, actions, aud morals of I the Catholieg and other religious denominations, from Matthias up to Father I'helan, appear to have set the *. orld oil (ire, to lime lighted up the flames of love and worldlv atlectiou, uuder what Bum.* the Scottish poet would call "the frosty pow,"?the very silver huirs of fifty, and the demure aspect of long experience. Mr. Theodore I)wight, and the Rev. .Mr. Smith, Ex-Catho Ik piiest, have made some efforts to bring the live*, lores, and adventures of Father Phelan and Father Canto before the world, but James S. Smith, one of the admirable police officers ?f New York, has far exceeded these litterateurs and brought into the public arena a Doctor of Divinity, a clergyman, au Episcopalian, a man of great reputation, and greater rents. We have on several occasions alluded to a rencontre that took place recently, between a pretty widow up town and a reverend gentleman of the Episcopal persuasion?thereby shewing that the Catholic clergy are not exactly monopolists in woman's charms?not the only admirers of beauty and bltck eyes. On Saturday last, beginning at eleven o'clock, a private examination oa this subject took place at the Upper Police office, before Justices Wytnan and Palmer. Aecordinglv? " My irick,y ?pirit! Fine appariiiou! Mv quaint Ariel!" was 011 the ground at an early hour. "You can't be j present at the examination," said Justice Wyman, with 1 gravity; but, said Justice Palmer, with great consi- j deration for the public, " if you can pick up any crumbs or drpipings," pointing his finger to the north," you 1 are welcome." These dripninsrs?these crumbs?we I now give, and we have no doubt they will be as much relished as the haunch of venison itself. It appears that the interesting holy man in question is the Rev. Josrph Carter, D. D., who resides in Hudson street, one door above Hammersley?it is well to I be particular in th?se things. He is an English clergyman by birth?ati Episcopalian?a man of great learn' ing and prudence?and most probably understands the j 1 Oriental and oth<T tongues. He is also a gentleman of! properly, and owns several houses. He is not settled j l in any particular church, but generally preaches wherej ever there is a vacant palpit, and multitudes hungering , after the word. He has been in Canada?and if we are not mistaken?resided in Montreal several years. Whether he was acquainted with Father Pkelaq, and took some lessons from that superior divine, we have not learnt. Doctor Carter, residing in this city for some time, teachiog and preachiug wherever it was neces ary, became acquainted with an interesting widow i lady of great personal beauty and some accomplishment?, whose name is Mrs. Pheason Griffin, residing at No. 8 Sixth Avenue. She formerly kept a fashionable boarding house in Broadway, opposite the Park, but latterly has been endeavoring? " To teach (lie young idea Uok to ?hooLn The circumstances are these :?At this season of the i year, there u a great bustle in the city about taking and leasing houses. This business brings many persons together, who otherwise might have remained ignorant of each other's attractions till doomsday. In the course of this business, the Rev. Doctor frequently met the lovely widow at her landlord's, Mr. Bracken's. 1 One day she went down iu the morning to see Mr. ! Biackett in relation to the re-leasing of her house for I another year. At this interview, the Rev. clergyman : happened to be present. Mrs. Griffin was neatly ' dressed?looked very charmingly?and her black eyes I shone with uncommon lustre. She sat down?hIm* , talked?she rose?she talked?she stood?she talked for soine lime with her landlord. This was not the first ' time Dr. Carter hud the sublime felicity of seeing the lovely widow, but at this interview the deepest impression was made. As no nunneries are allowed here, and as Mrs. Griffin had no penchant for these places, of course the conduct of Father Phelan or Father Cento or Fatlier I'ies could furnish uo precedent in the present case. In reply to her iuquiries, Mr. Bracket! said * Mrs. Griffin, I will give you an answer in the aftern< w." "Very well," said Mrs. Griffin, getting up, and putting a glove on her pretty hand?" I shall call down in the afternoon, and know what you have concluded on." At this moment the Rev. Dr. Carter could stand it no longer. The spirit moved. He started up, and in his most bland and winning manner, said?" Mrs. Griffin, don't put yourself to any trouble. I shall be up in you-- part of the city in the afternoon. If you will permit mr, I will call upon you, and bring you up Mr. Brackett's answer." Mr.*, Gritiiu looked at him. For the first time siie then saw in the reverend gentleman's face great piety, much religion, and boundless benevolence. He was a fine, florid, good-looking, hale, hearty, old fellow of fifty-five,?with grey, silvery hair, keen grey eyes, and great suavity of manner. She bowed gracefully?u I thank you, Sir, but I will not give you the trouble." "No trouble?no trouble," said Dr. Carter, with still greater piety, and benevolence, pressing for her consent with all the eloquence he waa master of. E R A L LAKLli 7, ltfoU. JiT" What could a pretty w idow <lo in this dilemnm ? She could not refuse the kind offer of the reverend man. She hud a soul to save, and w ho could tell but that he niijhl be of benefit in that quarter? She had also a disengaged heart, forliei husband?rcquiescat iti pact-.' ' ?hud departed this life five years 1150. After a good deal of hesitancy, and much internal struggle, Mrs. Gritiin asrreed to receive the reply cf Mr. Bracket! from the. Reverend I toe tor, who would most certainly call that afternoon. u Well,*' said Mrs. f iiitTiu, iu one of her most heavenly smiles? " If you ire coiuiu; up town in the afternoon, vou may c ill in."* In the afternoon, His lieverejice made his ap|waruncc ' in the Sixth uveuue. He wns true to his appointment. He came up to the door. He knocked. The servant ' opened it. *' Would you say to your mistress, my dear, that I want to see tier on bu.-iness ot importance from her landlord." The message was carried to the la-'v, who was then in the school room, the children having been just dismissed. " Shew him in here," said Mrs. GritUn. The Reverend gentleman was accordingly shown into the school room, which was up stairs. He mounted the stuirs witli alacrity, entered the room, found the lovely widow alone, and immediately delivered his mes sage,?then entered into conversation with her 011 some trivial subject, such as the weather?the snow?the long winter, &c. ?Stc. Tho widow looked prettier than ever. Her black eyes burned with meaning, and the Reverend gentleman's very grey hair almost changed color and turned brown with youth again. He could stand it no longer, but started up, and? * * * ecstasy * ' * * soft cheek clasped ? ? ? ? * * * bust * her arms * * * * * 8<?rtamed * * murder * * villain * * unholy ? * * ? rasca| * * * This was kept up for several minutes. At length she freed one of her hand*, and commenced scratching and tearing at a furious rate. She then managed to get clear, and ran out of the room continuing her shouts and cries for some time. The Rev. gentleman, whose strenuous exertions had fatigued him very much, made the best of his ?ir homewards, whence the next day, he was taken by officer J. S. Smith to answer the charge of assault. Such is the lady's storv. When it caine to the Reverend Doctor's turn to be examined, he aro?e and stated that by the advice of his counsel he declined answering any questions whatever. We learn however that he intends to prove an alibi, and furthermore to prosecute Mrs. Griffin and her servants for a conspiracy to extort money. On hisiride im-friende ?i?u Una she offered to compromise for $S00, and be thinks that hi* good nature and benevolence were waylaid on purpose by the pretty heathen. At present it is difficult to tell what the real truth of the matter is. Affidavits encounter affidavits precisely a3 in the cose of Miss Monk.? Going into the school rooms of handsome widows is certainly out of the regular business of a clergyman, unless he intends to strengthen her soul and to confer I an especial portion of grace upon her struggling spirit. He is held to bail for $1000, and when the trial shall come on, due notice shall be given to our readers. Thus far the present " awful disclosure." But we 1 cannot permit it to pass without drawing a moral or two for the benefit of our readers. The clergy of late, of every denomination, appear to be getting into bad scrapes. W hat can be the cause of it 1 In Boston, is Providence, in Montreal, in New York, * flairs hare taken place which go far to shew that wickedness pre Tails in the land. There must be something in the atmosphere to produce this great consumption of virtue among those who make it their business. Now if such things were attempted by editors, no one would be sur- ' prised. If I, or Col. Webb, or L)oct. Peter S. Towns- ' end, or any other editor were to shew too much attention towards a handsome widow, no one would be sur- , prised?every body would say?"just like the d?d ' scoundrels!!"?"what can you expect ofsuch sinners?" j Indeed I begin to think that wt, editors, possess a large portion of that virtue which was formerly owned by church and state. I suppose that is the reason that we ore such favorites with the ladies. Heretofore all the surplus love and affection which the fair sex pus- | sessed, they have invariably bestowed upon the clergv. Now it is all absolutely transferred to popular editors. What an amiable race we are! When the poison shall be fully extracted out of us by a hot sun, we editors shall become " the paragon of animals?ihe quint essence of dust?in form and moving, how express and admirable!?inaction how like an angel!?in apprehension how like a god !" [Ptivdtr Correspondence.] Washington, March 3,1836. Don't you think that the Queen Regent of Spain ought to send Mr. Cushing one of her best "embroider- 1 ed petticoats," in token of her admiration and gratitude, for the "emphatic testimony borne by him to her integri- | ty and dignified sentiments ?" Mr. Everett's adulatory speech to one of her predecessors' had been publicly noticed and remanded, he won Id have obtained, for his i Kains, the original petticoat embroidered by the royal ands of the pious and now sainted Ferdinand.

Haidenbrook, Bovv vcr aud Welch, at the request of several morchunt tailors down town, went for the purpose of taking up any who should attempt to stop their workmen, or create any disturbance. They succeeded in i ajiiuinij; i?o, wno were sent lo (lie watch-house, and thence, bulled out. Bo* ver, w ho is a quwr fish, thought he would have some fun to himself, and seeing a number of journeymen collected around Mr. St. Jehn's store, in Broadway, lie walked down Liberty street, took off his over coat and tied it up in a handkerchief. With his bundle under his arm, his head down betw een his shoulders and a feigned limp, he inarched into Mr. St. John's store. Those outside peeped iu at the win' dows and saw this tieir journeyman fcive in his work, get his money, and receive tnore work. The geatleI men of the store, who knew Bowyer, saw at once hi9 scheme and aided it. They examined his overcoat very closely, praised the manner in which the work was done, paid him, and furnished him with another coat to make. He started off w ith his bundle again under his arm, and was followed by al>out twenty joorneymnn tailors on the strike. When lie was going down Cedar street, perceiving that they still followed him. he slopped and asked why they did so. 44 Oh!" said the spokesman o! tne gang, u you arc on<- of lliosc d d scabby rascal# tlmt won't strike, but d n you, j?e'll make vou." He gave no onw*r, but went on as fast as his limp would allow, and the* began pelting him with ice. Finding that warm work, he quickened his pare almost to a run, aud only two kept up with him. He went up Broadway, they did the same?he went down Maiden Lane, they ditto. At length ha grew a little vexed that they would not suffer him to take homt hu ifork, and he stopped short and asked them what bnsiness they had to follow hiai. The reply was a crack over the head, which Bowyer, with all his good nature, could not take for nothing, so he paid it back. Tke other one came to his friend's assistance, and between thcin they peppered poor Bowyer pretty well. Bat . he sang out for the watch, und guv* them is custody ' fo'the cruardinn ef th? night, who lodged thorn safely in the watch-house. They were most terribly 1 crest-fallen when informed that their antagonist, and supposed journeyman, ?as that terrible Bowyer.? They were, however, suffered to depart on their own worjs, and on Sunday morning they appeared, gave bail for their appearance at the Sessions, and were di?! charged. Their names are Rose and Douglass. | Officers G. Hays feDunshee, succeeded on Saturday ' in discovering the meney, ($1500) of .Madame Bielle. Fouage, who had been pretty well cooled by hi* night'* ' lodging in jail, sent for them, and said that his son had it.
