MORNING HERALD.
TtHBIDAY, MEPTRMBEK 14, lllf.
fV a curious developement of the new state of
things at Washington will be found on our outside.
yV The Albany Ahcus will please hereafter to
?end their paper so that we may receive it on the
evening of the same day it is published. Otherwise
ir is not worth the exchange. Other papers here rs
ce<ve :t so.
To the Planters of the South mid Partners
of the North.
In addition to our daily Money Market aTticle
we have, for name weeks past, added to the business
columns of the Herald, a daily Cotton Market,
and similar daily Corn Market, embracing, in their
facts, views, principles, the results of the w hole Union,
and not only the Union, but the entire commercial
world.
The approbation which the entire monetary and com
mercial world has given to our Money Market articles
? to their facts? their principles ? the:r integrity ? their
independence of all cliques and cotcrics, has borne us
up against the combined opposition of a corrupt and
gnorant newspaper pre*s, both in tins anil in other
commercial cities. We shall show these men, and
the world at large, that our Cotton and Corn Markets
will at far outstrip any tVing of the kind ever attempt
ed in ?he country, as did our Money Maiket and
Wall Street reports.
The importance of our daily Cotton Report to
every Southern merchant and planter, is not a whit
greater than that of our Corn Market to the fanner
and agriculturalist of the east, middle, and grain grow
ing States. Since we began these reports, we have
had, necessarily, to meet with many difficulties, and
many obstructions. The acquisition of facts, of such
a nature, and in such masses, as to be serviceable in
making accurate deductions and drawing impregna
ble principles, is a work oi no small care and magni
tude. The arrangement and condensation of these
tacte, are equally matters of ume, and labor. Yet so
far as we havj already proceeded, we have the conso
lation to believe that the public have been agreeably
pleased with our maiden efforts to produce an entire
revolution in the money, cotton and corn markets.
Heretofore the cotton and the corn-grower at the
south and the north, were entirely in the hands of
speculators and brekcrs, by whose interested efforts
the teal condition of the markets were concealed. We
go for an entire freedom of trade ? for the utmost
publicity to all facta ? believing that such a policy
will best protect the interests of the farmer and the
planter.
Up to the establishment of the Herald, the leading
newspapers of our large cities were all in the hands,
and under the control, of ignorant and corrupt ban
kers. who for ten years have oppressed and deceived
the mechanic and mercantile interests like Shylock
himself. Our money market reports, by their bald
ness. truth and originality have begun a revolution
that will end in the emancipation of the mercantile
and mechanic classes, from the grasping usurers and
the faithless banks.
The movement which we have begun in the cotton
ami corn markets will have the same tendency to
emancipate the planter of the south from thp grasp
ing cotton broker, and the farmer of the north from
the corn speculator. A daily devei<*pemcnt of truth,
fact, and sound principles, on any particular subject,
cannot fail in the end to awaken the mind and regu
late the conduct. We know that our daily corn rvar?
-ct'j have already thrown the infamous speculators
in bread ttlufls into terror and confusion, and by keep
ing up a constant fire, of the same honest materials,
we shall be able to and the interests of the farmer,
while we protect equally those of the masses of the
community 111 the large cities.
The best evidence of the approbation with which
the public view our course, is probably seen in the vast
accession of subscriptions daily tumbling into our of
fice from every part of the country. In lees than one
year every important planter in the south, and farmer
in the north, will require a copy of the Herald, if for
nothing else but its reports on the money, cotton, and
com markets. On these very grounds , our country
subscription is increasing at the rate of several
hundreds per week, a' t payable in advance; nnd at
this moment our country circulation is larger and
better than ntarly all the other -weekly papers issued
in New York. How much this will increase in the
course of the canting year, when all our plans shall
have been earned into effect, the reader can as rea
dily calculate as we can. In London some of the
largest country subscriptions are 50,000 copies. What
is to prevent the Herald from circulating as many
among 560,000 cotton planters and agriculturalists J
Nothing. Our daily edition is now larger than that
of the " London Times," and in a year our country
iH*ue will exceed, at the rate it is going that of any
other paper in the.world.
Before we close, we take the opportunity to re
quest planters, farmers, and agriculturists throughout
the Union, whom these lines may reach, to give us
as much information on these subjects as they pos
sess, and if editors of country papers were to devote
more space and time to accurate reports of the state
of the crops in their several neighborhoods, they
would be doing the nation a greater service than atuf
fingthem with dirty politics, or regions cant, as they
now too frequently do.
Tub Cookies a??d Khquiser Ar, aimst the N. V.
Piuits.? The impudent pr? tenders of this ncketty
csncern continue to slander the Pilots of this port?
and to pass enlogiums on the Jersey loafer*. The
story whi^h they toll of " a man called Philo L bby,
acting as pilot," is a falsehood from ben nningto end.
'Hurt .$ no pilot of surh a name in New York. ?
The only event that bears a resemblance to tkts false
version is this On Friday last Phyler K. H. Dibble,
a pilot belonging to the B ?at Jambs Avcav, No. 6,
as be was guiding the Welhggton into port, heard a
noise at the stern. On looking round he beheld a
News Boat pasoing her wake, snd her crew bluster
ing at a great rate. There was no such reply made
as that represented in the Courier. The approach of
the News Boat, was not discovered by any person on
board. Had it keen our " Celesta," or ih?i " Teazer,"
there is no deabt our men would have given warning
in time and thus received a rope's end.
The other story told, that some persons unknown,
atole the packages of the " Courier," is a slander
against the Captains of the Packct ships, and will
be properly resented by those gallant fellows. The
insinuation that the Captains of New York steal the
Courier's packages, for the pnrpose of selling them
?n the eitjr, is worthy of the miserable concern of
jJrirellers who have been bought and sold by the V.
S Bank aa often aa a water lot in Harlem, which the
purchaser eould net reach with a ten feet pole. Does
the < Jouner odfcr $62,767 reward to convict a Packet
Captain of stedipg their papers?
We have no doubt, the nett time the Courier's
News Boat's loafers approach a ship, under the com
mand of Mr. f>ibbk?, he Will grve tbern, very justly,
the greasy eod of a rope, just where they deserve to
have it laid on.

Highland S*cl?ty.
This is emphatically the age of humbug. Ye?t?r
day, some of the ao called members of the Highland
Society, with naked legs, threadbare taruna, and
ahocking bad bonnets, paraded a portion of thia good
ly city of (ietham, to the terror and aatoniahment of
a large number of reepectabic ladies, and to the praise
of nobody or nothing, save two large doga and three
large negroes. It was a high doy and holiday for the
loafms, loungers and lazzaroni of this multiform peo
pled city. An announcement was made that ihe
members of the Highland Society would walk from
the Blue Bonnet, in Frankfort street, to the steam
boat at the foot of Canal street, each one clad in the
national costume, id c*t? the tartan and kilt, clan
hose, baked knees, skeindhu, claymore, &c. &c.
This, of course, drew a large ctowd of males and fe
males, draymen, dustman, and drunkards, into the
neighborhood of the Park, about ten o'clock.
" Do the gentlemen mean to walk through the
streets without any breeches 1" asked an elderly lady
I in specs and sable silk? evidently horrified at the
' idea. " So it is supposed, Mrs. Upright," said a sad
dler. " Then I wonder the Society for the suppres
sion of Vice have not taken measures to put a stop to
their prooeedings.
"Is it possible," said a sweet looking young lady,
her mouth all wreathed smiles, " that men so prudent
as the Scotch are reported and presumed to be,
will venture to violate the feelings and decorum of the
inhabitants of a civilized city in this enlightened age,
as to walk half nakvd, showing their nasty knees,
through the streets of New York in open day light V'
"Not only poss.ble, but actually probable and about
to be perpetrated, "replied a bystander ? and perpetrat
ed it was. About eleven in the forenoon some 12 or
20 of these nondescripts assembled in the biggest
room of the Blue Bonnet House. After various at
tempts to call them to order, each one being too intent
to admire their their naked knees, which
" Sioo<t
In all their naked charm*."
The chairman called out, " Gentlemen Highlanders,
clad in Kilt and full tartan, please to put in practice
common prudencc ; as we are so scant in numbers,
please to walk six feet apart lengthways, and three
feet apart breadthwdys, so shall we seem to be more
numerous and extensive than we really are!"
A sapient member of the society having suggested
that they would occupy more ground by walking 12
feel apart, his proposition was overruled as irregular '
and inconsistent, and the brawny band moved into I
the streets. Then there was a tremendous crowding,
crushing, pushing, and shouting among the ladies
and loafers who obtained a sight of the strange set. i
And, as jf conscious of the incongruity of their as- >
pect and appearance they hurried through the Park,
and down Broadway to Canal street. And during j
their progress ensued a scene too good to be forgot
ten or passed over in silence. Many ladies who had
left their homes unconscious of what whs about to
occur, were struck stupified with amazement to see a
number of nondescripts, half naked, parading the
middle of Broadway. The crowd of loafers attend
ing them was so great as to prevent the eseape of
any lady, either backwards or forwards, and so they .
had to " grin and bear 11," as David Crockett did the
bite of the bear, ever and anon casting furtive glances
at the naked knees of the ncndescnpt6 here spoken
I of.
"Look-ee there, look-ec there," said a nigger to his i
dark doxey ; " them 'er.- white men are wiolatmg the i
city decencies ; they arn't got no breeches on ; I won- '
derOld Hays don't take 'em all up." The wooden ;
Scotch figure of a Highlander, stuck up at New- 1
combe's snuff shop, in Broadway, looked unutterable
things, to see himself so scandalously caricatured;
and one old lady actually (aimed in front of the hos l
pital, so sadly was she shocked at the unseemly ^
scantiness of one of the would-be Highlander's kilts. >
But many, divers, and multiform were the forms and >
faces of the fair sex, who peeped at the petticoats, or
kilts, from garret, bed room, drawing room, parlor,
store, and bar room, and strange and unmentionable
wore the remarks made by the ladies on this ludicrous
occasion.
Some female* had a good open, broad, straightfor- I
ward, downright stare at the men and their under
standings ; others looked to see if any one wan look
ing at them, and then took a look for good luck ;
some stole a side glance from the corner of their eye !
?and others had a sort of under look at the under
standings from under their bonnets. Altogether it
was a great day for the loafers and a great day for
theladies? they saw more naked knees thau itisto
be hoped they will ever sec again in tho whole course
of their blessed and beautiful lives, and one young
creatareclad in female iiture actually ran down Canal
street at the top of her bent and her spaed to take a
last look at the Highlanders, their kilts, and their '
comical concerns.
The boat that took them over to Hoboken was
crowded with ladies and loafirs, and so was the
F.lynan fields where thoy cut Hp divers dreadful di
does? drank a bountiful portion of brandy? got sev
eral crooked stick*, and in knocking at a ball
knocked one another over the shins severely? then
drank some more brandy? then threw of! their coats
and threw a big stone about 20 or 30 feet ? then lialf ;
a dozen ran down a lane in the midst of a crowd, as
if they were mad? then they jumped very like Jim
Crow, then they had a blow out of beef and brandy
? and then returned to the city with their faces red
and rusty, and tkeir legs dirtv and dusty ; and this they
called reviving the sports of the hardy Highlanders.
Verily and of a truth, truly, this is emphatically the
age of humbug! ?

IuroiTANT rioM THB Last Cuitvby.? By ibe
slow mail from thslaat Century we have received Ales
of " the New York Weekly Journal," dated in April
and May, 1734, being 103 years since, frem which we
have made several curious extracts, illustrative of
tho sayings and doings" of that remote period of
, time. The following is the title of the paper : ?
^ "The New York Weekly Journal, Numb. XXV.,
Containing the Freshest Advices, Foreign and Do
mestick. Munday April 2*2th, 1734."
The following is the imprint
"New-York: Printed and Sold by John Peter
Zenger : By whom Subscriptions for this Paper are
taken at three Shillings per Quarter; and Advertise
ments at three Shillings the first Week, and one Shil
ling every WTeeks after."
From a pretty long communication signed "John
Trusty," descanting on the foreign trade? particu
: larly the trade between New York and tlfc Bermoo
I thes ? we take the following specimen of locofocoism :
" Our luxury consists more in an expence of what
is Imported from forreign Ports, than what is of our
own growth Manufactories ; 1 am credibly informed, i
that Tea and China Ware cost the Province, yearly, |
near the Sum of Ten Thousand Pounds; and Peo- ]
Ele that are the least able to go to the expence, must j
ave their Tea, tho' their Families want Bread. Nay,
I am told often pawn their Rings and Plate to gratifie
themselves in that Peice of Extravagance. Were an
Excise upon the Consumer, and that applied to boun
ties, for raising of Hemp and making Cast Iron, to
be exported to England, I believe it would not be
j taken ill by our Mother Country. Nature has fur
! nisbed us with every Thing for our Advantage, and
| we only want Frugality and Industry to make us Op
i ulent, for as we have no returns to Great Britain, we
must infallibly be soon over Head and Ears in Debt,
and by our necessities be induced to multiply our
Bills of Credit, which will of Course multiply our j
Misfortunes, for in those Places where a Paper Cur- j
rency had intirely obtained, by Raising of its Name
only, they have made a Debt formerly contracted of
I 1001. to have been paid with half the Sum. Nay
! some Times 50. and in Process of Time will be paid
with 40. which to me seems a publick Bankruptcy
i and Composition, it renders Property unstable and
precarious, and all thinking People should do all in
their power to avoid so great an Evil.
Tho New York Star, and several other charlatans '
' of the press, gave out the idea that hostility to paper
money, is a modern notion, originating with Fanny J
I Wright. It appears from this curious extract da
1 ted April, 1734, over 103 years since, that more cor
rect notions of the currency were entertained in those
days, than you will find in the impudent shin-plaster
pretenders of our age. It appears also that ihere was
distress in those days. The following remedy is the 1
one proposed
"Attempts have been made in this Province, by
which a pretty good Guess may be made, what they
will do; one Hambridge, b\ raising Hemp upon a
few Acres of Land, ha* acquired good Estates for his
Children. Men of mean Fortunes have erected
Bloomeries, and got a good Livelihood by them ;
what might then be done, if Men of Estates would
erect Furnaces, and public Encouragement were gi
ven for every Tun of Iron and Hemp exported to
England, by which meuns w? should supply Eng
land with as good Iron and Hemp, as they have from
the Baltick, and if we supplied them as cheap, which
1 ain apt to think we may, we should receive all the
Encouragement from our Mother Country which ao 1
laudable an undertaking would deserve."
Industry, economy, and enterprise arc the only re- i
medics for public distress in every ag<?.

appear in the " Journal," is amusing

Pauroaa am Bookssilbbs.? Yesterday we ftve
? brief account of the Printer*' Fete, or Public Din
ner, en Saturday last. What a contrast it presented
to that recently given by the Publishers ! Let us
explain.
There ia, perhaps, no class of men that are so igno
rant of real genius, and pure taste? so proud and vul
gar, both in equal parts? as the Publishers of New
Y ork. We might make a few exceptions, but I do not
know that it is worth the while. Not leng ago they
gave a great fete to the authors, writers, poets, and
other persons of genius in this city. The committee
of arrangements of that fete actually debated, for se
veral hours, whether 1, James Gordon Bennett, should
be invited to the dinner. After a long speech from
Dearborn, the publisher, and others, I was rejected,on
the ground that I was not recognised as a man of ta
lent, genius, or intellect among the literary colcriea of
New York.
Now I will venture to say, that, during the last two
years in which I have conducted the Herald, I have is
sued more original writing ? more powerful eloquence
? more just truth ? more correct taste ? more unques
tionable philosophy, on every subject, morals, trade,
religion, &c. than all the literati of New York, w!tn
the blockhead publishers to boot, have in twice the
time. The wide circulation of the Herald ? the start
ling enthusiasm it creates wherever it goes? the foam
which it dashes from its prow as it forces its headway
through the waves of ignorance and of folly, attest
its eftect, and the magnitude of the power which sets
it in motion.
But this is only a trifle. Before I close my career,
1 am determined, before God and Eternity, to create
a new era in literature and newspaper philosophy. I
consider Irving, Cooper, and all their literary co tem
poraries, as a coterie of mere imitators and inferior
minds, some of them amiable, some unamiable, and
some savage. They are the copiests of Byron and of
Scott, who form the only batch of parent genius that
has appeared in the world, since the time of Shaks
peare, Milton, Pope or Addison. My ambition is
higher. I spurn all imitation? ail copying? all cab
bagc-dealing. Planting my course on the unchangea
ble principles of truth, taste, and morals, my object is
to create a new literary age, and to make the daily
press the engine of a new reformation in religion,
literature, taste and morals.
To comprehend this great purpose, there is not a
blockhead bookseller, nor a paltry litterateur , in the
city? unless it be among the ladies ? that has brains
enough. Among all the literary professional classes,
probably the printers alone, as a body, have the origi
nality, genius and independence to join the work and
aid its progress onward. One of the best evidences
of this spirit is the enthusiasm with which they drank
the toast I sent tliem last Saturday. It was the
printers of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries that
caused the emancipation of Europe from religious,
political and intellectual slavery? it will be the prin
ters of the present duy that will set a-going the next
great reformation, which will astonish the world be
fore the nineteenth century shall have sunk into Eter
nity. Success to independent printers and newsf?a
pers ? down w th the blockhead booksellers and their
trashy novels !
Irregularity ok the Maim. ? Amos Kendall lias
shown us what he can do in regard to the despatch of
the Message. It went through the route in amazingly
quick time ? if he >'tn do so well we call his attention to
the mail department. There is nime gross neglect
about it; where we know not, l>ut somewhere. The
W estern and Southern mail* are very irregular, more
especially the forme 1 . and it is not an uncommon occur
reuoe after Tt:issii?g our slips for tome days to find a hat
full of them, a month behind the date at which t'lev
ought to have been received. Where do they go to ?
They seem like the wandering Jew, for -iwme dark of
fence doomed to travel before they are allowed to eonse
to rest ? or like the deposites which before the tuitp?-n
?km used to be carted backwards and forwards almut
the country. The majority of o*r slips ate, it is true,
very barren of news, and it may possibly be that the
jnjj'tmaster wishe* them to travel, to see whether in their
pe rigrinations they can pick up any. But this, if so,
like some other cabinet views, is a little theoretical ?
therefore, good Amos, for your own sake, seeing that
your credit is at stake, in the perfection of your arrange
inenls ? *ee to it. Also for our *ake, seeing that the
little seraps ot newi, like pastry, are apt to become
-:ule if left too long ? goo<! Amos, see to it.

exists a striking resemblance. Howevsr, take him
all in all, the Squire is a very decent fallow, and in
dustrious drummer, and a respectable member of the
community. I look upon him with a moat favomblc
eye.

It's source to the enraptured gaze.
Oh I could look, forever look,

And dream, till death my slumber broke,
In tbnd, ineffable delight.
Take all? take all, but lrave to me
The heaven of a woman's eye.
Th? soft and watching tenderness,
The gentle radiance of each beam,
From founts so calm and fathomless,
Where mingling thoughts and feelings gleam;
What mystery doth their signs declare?
'Tis love, 'tis love is speaking there.
Love, whose chain doth bind the soul
Submissive to his dear delights,
Love, whose triumphal car doth roll
O'er othei ptt?i ins ? love that lights
Each hour with joy, as swift it Hies,
Love thrones his might in woman's eyes.

Monday, Sept. 11, G P. M.
The foreign and domestic trade of the country is rapidly re
turning to a healthy state of things? to nearly the exact posi
tion from which we started after the revulsiou of 1825. The '
cry still kept up by certain persons, for more expansions by the
banks, proceeds from real estate and other speculators. The
real business men of the cnuntrj are gradtidly withdrawing
from all connection with speculators and politicians, and begin
ning their operations dt novo.
As an evidence of a more healthy course of action in our fo
reign trade, the specie In purchase of goods or in payment of
deb.s, but principally the former, continues to flow into this
mart. Last night we had the following arrivals from the ports
named :
From Vera Cruz, $126,270
Mauiruas, 78 1
Estimate of lormer arrivals, >,006,000
$5,127,007
Of the arrivals of specie last night, $14,000 was for Goodhue
It Co., the balance for i-unnty-fou - other homes.
The specie imports may be considered in various points of
view. They may be in liquidat on o> old debts? in payment
for new purchases? or to settle the balances o I foreign ex
change which the variations of trade may create between New
York and the ports named. The two latter points of view re
solve themselves into one, and the best guess is that which as
sign! tl ese amounts to l?e for purchases of fresh merchandise.
By these operations we see that the foreign trade is gradu
ally return ing to the sam?' system which existed from 1826 to
18'30 before the United States hank and the large houses in
London, New York and New Orleans had organized the sys
tem of creating a large nominal capital by drawing and re
drawing between the different commercial ports of the world.
The foreign exchanges between New Vork and every point
of the world, are thus rapidly returning to a healthy action.
While this is the course of things in the foreign trad*, we be
gin to see a like movement, forcing its way in the domestic
trade. Of late, \arious lot* of specie have l>een received here
from Charleston, 8. C., ui>d alio from New Orleans. By the
JohnScrgeant, expected in a week from New Oi leans, we per
ceive thai $15,000 in specie have been shipped to this port ?
During the last month probably 00, more or lew, have*
been received here from the southern marts. The race-horse
bills, as they were railed, set on fool by the ingenuity of the
the United States bank, uiul participated in by the late deposile
banks have not only been broken up and destroyed, but in
their destruction, they carried with them the real exchange
transaction* of the south and north. The currents of real
trade, and the organization of the et changes, the balances
payable m specie, are rapidly returning to the same systeirv
which existed before the United State* bank introduced the
domestic kiting lyntt'in.
During the interruption of the Southern exchanges, caused
by the revulsion of Marcli laM, the Southern mercbhnt* have
begun a great movement calculated to <-? i?l>li?h a direct im
porting and exporting sy?tetn between the cotton growing
Staler and Europe. Possessing, :n the great ?taple?, couoo,
rice uod tobacco, the basis of nil our exchange* and foreign
trade, the Southern merchant*) begin to think that they can
take lhr ir foreign import trade, Into their own band*, at a dimi
nution of 30 per cent as compared with the < xpenaea of the
name trade, conducted through the agencies of New York and
Ute North.
In connection wiUi this matter a great effort is now making isr
Baltimore to persuade the banks of that city into measures cal
culated to make that the centre of the eichaoge operation* of
the Sooth and of Europe, and thus to secure tbe Southern
trade through that channel. The plan proposed t* accomplish'
tbi? purpose, is for the banks of Baltimore and those of Charles
ton, Mobile and New Orleans, to make some arrangement by
wliii-h VatiiAern bank pttptr would circulate at per in tke aty of
Haltonorr. If this plan Is capable of producing >nch an effect
on the current of Southern trade and Southern exchanges, we
presume that it is perfectly competent for the banks in this
cay to beinthefteld ahead ot the Baltimore bunk".
By the new action of thi General Government, all onr banks
are henceforth to be left to shift for themselves. Tbe dissolu
tion of the adulter*? as coniiectien, whatever miserable politic
dam may say, will be found, in the sequel, to beadtaaUgeous
to both banks and government. Ever sir ce banks have been
connected with government, we have seen nothing but aglta
tio.i? agitation. In order to show that the New York banks,
especially those formerly called Depa?ite Banks, can outstrip
the Baltimore backs, in securing the southern trade on this
plan, we annex the following statement of their condition,
made last week by Secretary Woodbury to Congress s?

By the judicious curtailments, and the steady pi ogress made
id liquidating tlie balance" due the government. these banks
are now ma better and stronger position than any other banks
in the country. The banks of Baltimore, uiAi ch, ill.* ikon ?/'

condition, mystery is a ground of suspicion, and suspicion Indi
cates rottonnesa. The only banks in Baltimore, of which we
poMwas any kuowledge, are those given in the Secretary's Re
port. They follow, and are certainty iu no great condition to

lating paper. A large institution, with a capital of #10, 000, M0,
orgai bed aa a specie paying bank, and with power to deal ia
exchanges, would aet every species of husiaem In regular ac

The interruption between the trade of tbe north and ***tb
