New features of the Devolution?Virion of the Albuuy Urgency aaul the Wall street Speculators, T.ie approaching election, which opens this day week, is, probably, one of the tnost important that has taken place in this city for a quarter of a century. The various political, social and moral principles in volved in its decision, are the very elements and es smnec of law, society and civilization in this land of liberty. It is no use to disguise the magnitude of the contest. The eyes of the whole nation are upon us. The defeat of a paltry individual nominated for County Clerk., known as the friend of a murderer, is only abnef and contemptible point in this absorbing contest During the last few days several new features have been revealed in the progress of this revolution, which tend still further to give the contest u deep ad ditional interest. The Albany Argus, well known as the organ of a corrupt and atrocious clique of speculators in that capital, has come forth, and has actually taken sides wiih the same unfortunate set of men, who, in Broad wav House, nominated for the suffrages of the peo ple, a bal?h of miserable bank speculators and parti sans, and afterwards thrust the same men down the Ihroats of the people at Masonic Hall. The extra ordinary spectacle s presented, for the first time, of a whole array of rotten bank speculators, belonging to all former parties and factions, abandoning their old prejudices, and uniting in one policy, in one party, in one ticket, in support of their rotten, baseless, worthless institutions. The Albany Argus denounces Levi D. Slamm and others ? i the Tammany IlaJ ticket, because thev showed a contempt for the last legislature and recei ved a reprimand therefor. Admirable candor! sweet simplicity ! Could any man of sense entertain any other feeling than that of the profounde9t contempt for the last legislature, unless it was perhaps, hate and detestation at their insolence and corruption '?? VVas there ever a more corrupt, more rotten concern than that Legislature ? Did it not violate the first principles of law, cons itution and morality by the passage of the infamous suspension, mortgage and usury laws? Did a more contemptible legislature ever exist in any civilized community, than the last? If Levi 1). Slamm, a man of large intelligence and pro perty?expressed for that worthless body a contempt, it will only add to his popularity, his influence, and his reputation among a free and intelligent people. 15ut this is not all. It is only a few days since that Gjvernor Marcy, that ready agent for all kinds of bubbles and bad legislation, was in this city, arranging the terms by which the swindling bank speculators of New York and Albany could be enabled to defeat the very party which elevated himself to power. He and the worthless conserva'ives hivo pledged themselves to do the deed. For this great service, did the rotten batiks in Wall street mend tjjs hole in his breeches? D,d they clap a fifty cent patch on th't IN' t?f bis pan is loons 7 Let us know the worst, 1 ne position of parties and of public opinion in this city was never so curious. By a mysterious dispen sation of Providence, the atrocious speculators, who have by bubble banks, bubble lots at Harlem, bub ble towns in Ohio, bubble streets in Brooklyn, brought on the ruin of commerce and of trade?these specu lators arc now in a covey by themselves, huddled to gether in the same net at Masonic Hall, and will, by the union of all honest men in this community, be hurled to inevitable destruction, before the third day of n 'Xt week shall have sunk in the west. The accursed Albany Regency and the corrupt Wall street clique have united on the Hoxic ticket, to put down the per manent interests of an industrious and a free people. During the last eighteen months, who made the mer chants pay 2 to ft per cent per month for all their loans, while penniless brokers wrre borrowing their $100,000 of the banks? The safety fund banks of Wall street and Albany. Month after month, these atrocious speculators on tlis bread?on the blood ?on lis very souls of the mercantile interest, have been glaatmg like vultures, till they almost destroyed the whole country last spr ng. Look over the Masonic ticket?mnrk their officers and secretaries?who arc ihey ? The satne speculators in nil kuida of bubbles, who have driven the country to perdition during the last few years. The revolution which began last spring is only go ing on?onward. The corrupt union of politics and batik ng?of bank and state?called the Safety Fund system?is in its la*t throes. Its authors and suppor ters will h? buried in the same avalanche, in less titan one year. It matters not whether they call them selves demscrats, conservatives or whigs, they are known by their folly, insolence, and corruption, wher ever they shew themselves. If we wish to deliver this state from the shackles of the corrupt Safety Fund system, thccorrupt Albany Regency of bankers ?the corrupt Wall street clique of politicians, let the whole Masonic Hall ticket be hurled to fathomless perdition. There may he some few honest men on that ticket, hut its leaders are pledged to all kinds of l ank corruption, bank fraud, hank roguery?bank swindling, if they ever reach the legislative cham ber. We arc only in the beginning of a great revolution. From small and modest beginnings, the present bank ing system has grown up, to be one o| the greatest frauds?one of the most daring oligarchies?one of the most dangerous confederacies? that cverattempt ed to throw shackles upon a freepeoplc. The organi zation of the corrupt Safety Fand was the first step of its legal and corrupt existence. Its consequences seen in our day, were, n 1829, predicted, to our per tonal knowledge, by the late excellent Charles Wilkes and Lynde Catlin, who, when they departed from Wail street,took with them all the honor, science, skill and integrity, of the banking system. For seven years, we have had these corrupt institutions estab l.shed on mere paper, without capital, without honor, without talent. The right to issnc paper money, is equivalent to the sovereign power of coinage. This original power of ?very government, belongs not to speculators, not to swindlers?not to bubble let holders at Harlem, Brooklyn, or the moon. It belongs qf right to the owners of the soil?to the real estate holders qf a free jfopta. We must, therefore, have a revolution and reform in the banking system. The present race of corrupt, broken, irredeemable, faithless, safety fund banks in Wall street, and their affiliated institutions throughout the domains of the Regency, must be struck out uf existence as fast as possible. We go tor a gradual but energetic overthrow of the whole sys tem. The owner* of the noil alone aught to postes* banking privileges. The solid Veallh of the city and state, houses, lands, unencumbered property, is the best foundation of its paper currency. The great mercantile interest?the owners of real estate?the mechanical classes of this great city are all rapidly uniting in favor of this radical revo'ution in our finan cial and banking systems. On this point, all the real interests of society are locofocoto the bottom of their hearts. None are hostile but the speculators?the bubble bank stockholders?the Ilarlem lot holders and such like pests of society, whoniay be termed the blacklegs of the banking system. The blockhsudsof Masonic Hall say it is a question between conservatism and locofocoism?between property and poverty, ft is an impudent and auda cious lie. The question now before the community, is a question between the solid wealth of New York and the lithographed bubbles of land and lot specu lators?it is to decide whether speculating banks, without capital, shall have the power of furnishing us with a depreciated currency, or solid institutions, founded on the houses, lands, and real property of j substantial citizens in every populous street of this city. On this question all old party tics and attach ments arc snapped in pieces. The corrupt Albany Regency and the equally corrupt Wall street clique of bankers and shavers, who swindled the merchants out of $20,000,000 during the years 1835 and '36 in usurious interest and exchange, are uni'ed in favor of the Masonic Hall ticket?but the whole honest, real estate, mercantile, manufacturing, mechanical inter est, of New York, will be, for the fir3t time, united on the Tammany Hall ticket. It is not a questiou about the paltry cabb3ge-truudler at Washington. When Van Buren'sday comes we shall be in the front rank, to crush him and his faction. We must first break down the corrupt Regency, and, ultimately, all corru p tion in Albany or Washington can easily be rooted out. We must seize their own cannon and turn it upon them, battering the rascals to the uttermost perdition with the very thunder wh ch they forged for the uses of corruption. Down with the swindling speculators and swindling banks, and all their irredeemable rags. Up with the honorable merchant, tke honest trader ?tke substaruial real estate owner?the industrious mechanic?the hard-w orking farmer?and a currency based on the solid wealth of the soil. Van Buren's day is coming?but the banks must go first. Overwhelming Meeting in the Seventh Wabu. ?Joe Hoxie's Election Sure.?On Eriday evening last, one of the greatest meeting-1 was held in the Seventh Ward, by the friends of Alderman Joseph Hoxie, which ever assembled together in New York. No doubt exists now of the final ir.umph of the Al derman, his election to be county clerk?salary $10, 000?and the utter pros'ration of the " vagabond ed itor" and the " squint-eyed son of a bitch," as Charles King, Esq. and his literary associates call Gordon Bennett, the infamous scoundrel who conducts the Heruld and makes that paper so abominably pop ular in this city. All the " young merchants of re spectability"?all the "innocent hoys from Thomas street," all the special friends of Rosina Townsend, were present at the meeting and made the air resound with their applause. Gordon Bennett is now considered to be dead and damned. Not a single voice was raised in his behalf, except one poor dcrd in a earner, who said "no" to the resolutions. He was instantly thrown out of the window, and it was well for him that he was, for a certain little hatchet, sworn to by a porter in Maiden Dane, was brandished so as to give warning to all those w ho dared to oppose Alderman Joseph Hux>o'a nomination. Several speeches were tnadc. A cadaverous look ng fellow, with big black whiskers, made a very elo-. quent harangue and said that Bennett wns at\ out east and no guntleman. "Now gentlemen," said he, "I know what a gentleman is. During the last fifteen years I have had fifteen quarrels, and came very near fighting each time. I have been fifteen times on the edge of e'crnity." "Awful," said the meeting. " Yes, gentlemen, fifteen times on the brink of eternity. You have heard of Dufl" Green, and of Poindoxter, and of Ueggett, and of Gholson." "Tremendous," said the assemblage. "These men know what 1 can do in the way of] fighting, and no man can be a gentleman that has not had his affairs of honor. Bennett has never been in the duugar that I have been?he is nogenntleman? lie's an outcast." Next followed another speaker with large whiskers, hut short in stature. He nlluded to Dartmoor?to gald snuff boxes, as the readiest mode to pay debts of $20,000, and closed with a high eulogium on Alder man Hoxie, and a withering philippic agninst the rascal Bennett, whom he called "a vagabond editor." Another speaker got up?pale, cadaverous, with carious round shoulders. Says he, "Alderman Hoxie is safe. I was in magnetic communication with Miss Bracket! recently, and we travelled through the air into the middle of next week to find out the result of this election. 1 asked her to look at the returns of the (Kills from the wards. She said? "Colonel, my love, I do." " What do you see 1" "I see a great many figures. ' "What kind of figures?" '' A nutnbtr of big OV ? " VNbs it O'Haggerty 7" asked the crowd. "Peace," said the chairman. " A number of big O's." " Oh ! cyphers"? " Yes, Colonel"? " Do, you sec any digit with them." " Digit ?what is that 7" asked Miss B. " A figure?a 2, 3, 4, 5, 6." " It aeemsto me I do," said the ?oranambuliM. ". What is it 7" " I think it is the number 2." "Ah! two thousand majority." " Now, look at the name?What is the name 1" " I don't see clearly?I oan'f read it"? "Let me magnatizc your stomachs little more. Try again Miss Bracket!?none but friends are here"? " Well, I think I see it now?thereH, O, A, X?" " There you see gentlemen," said the Colonel, " that meant our friend Hoxie, who is elected already by the sublime power of Animal Magnetism." Tremendous applause followed this. After theae speeches the following resolutions were passed aKLOLPTIOtfS. Resolved, That the nomination of Alderman Joseph Hoxie is the best that ever was made in this city? and that as it involves principles of the utmost mag nitude to society, we pledge ourselves and oar on cred honors to carry his election in spite of all the opposition that can be brought against it. Resolved, That Richard I*. Robinson, " the inns cent Imy," was one of the beat epenmena of the Ieuthof the present day that if he did actually kill Hen Jewett, there wns not ranch harm done, asahe was poor, frail, ant! beautiful?and his tact and pru dence in felling over the fence, only leaving th damned hatchet and cloak behind, was a mark of the march of inlellect and the progreae of the schoolmaster. Resolved, That we highly approve of the style, fashion and comfort in which Roaina Townsend kept her elegantestablish men t in Thoinaa street, regretting, that since her retirement to enjoy the dolec fur niente at Kmderhook?perhaps to grow cabbages?such es lublishnieiita have degenerated bo much as to tnake us mount over the degeneracy of the age. Resolved, That we highly approve of the t florts made by Alderman Joseph Hoxie to procure the es cape of Richard P. Robinson, in order that Texas might receive to its arms a young hero?and that for hts services on that trial, he is entitled to the wnrm approbation of this community, and the office of County Clerk?worth .$10,000 a year. Resolved, That we highly approve the conduct of alderman Joseph Hoxie on the bench, in inflicting on poor devils for petty thefts, the ulinost vengeance of the law, sending them to Black well's Island and the Penitentiary, while he, with great discrimination, gets on such innocents as Robinson, thus establishing the salutary principle that the laws are only made for the poor and friendless. Resolved, That we highly approve of the practice of those excellent persons who, like Ilosina Town send, collect together the prettiest girls from all crea tion, in order to adorn their houses and hvfp to while away the hours of such innocents as Robinson and ether young merchants of respectability about town. Resolved, As our deliberate opinion, that all good loeking, handsome young women, born of poor pa rents, are intended entirt ly to !kj inve'gled and sedu ced from their friends, in order to minister to the amusements of "innocent young men,"and "young merchants of respectability." Resolved, That the death of Ellen Jewett was merely an accident, and that, being poor, parenlless and beautiful, it would have been great injustice to have carried the laws into ( fleet, as the laws were on ly made for the poor and friendless?not for the edu cated and genteel. Resolved, rl hat the little hatchet which was used to split wood at Xo. 25 Maiden Lane, and afterwards to split something else in Thomas street, be preserv ed as a remarkable memorial, as a sacred relic of the event which took place in that famous street? und that the arms of our pnrty standard be hereafter signified by the emblem of a hatchet, with a little red streak on the edge, and a string on the handle. And, finally, resolved, That, on thise views and pr.nciple*, we unite, hand and heart, like n band of brothers, in order to elect Alderman Joseph Hoxie to be County Clerk, and thus gain u triumph over one of the damnedest squint-eyed sons of a that ev er disgraced tins city with his infernal vulgar talk about morals, nnd other nonsense?his low notions of justice?and Ins numerous insalts to all the first class es et society who nightly patronise such places as Kostua Townsend kept 111 so elegant a style. FRANK RIVERS, Chairman. The Sab Affair at Bloomincdale.?Aninquest was held on the body of the poor Irishman who was shot by young Rohr, at Bloomingdale. The jury re turned a verdict of " accidental death !" Of course, the young man has been liberated. We sympathize with his father?but we regret that such a verdict lias been rendered. The futher, we are informed, is a fine, honorable man?the jury, doubtless are honorable? " all honorable men!" But how they could consid er it a case of accidental killing we do not understand. H ow carne young Rohr to point a loaded gun at the Irishman, knowing, as he inust, that if discharged, even by accident, it would kill hiui. There was time for reflection?the gun might have been dis charged in the air?or dropped?or any thing rather, than pointed at the breast of an unoffending man. Admit that the youth did not intend to kill him, when he held the gun pointed at his heart?still he is not free from blame?he has been the means of cutting down in the spring-time of his existence, a man who was, as wc are informed, a valuablo citizen and rela tion?who never harmed him or his, and who was on ly discharging his duty at the time he was shot. It is a most distressing affair. The friends ?f the Irish man will still think he has been murdered?will anil think, (aa they and thousands of others have done since the Robjnson aflair,) that Juetica ja blind ciu hoodwinked irt our City?and that while enc man bcals in a poor girl's skull with a hatchet?a second strangles a second young girl and throws her over the Battery railing?a third cuts a stevedore's throat, and throws him into the river?three or four negroes beat a man to death?and yet no soul gsts punished?they must think it is no crime to commit murder. But, should they see those who aid and abet a murderer in his escape From justice, elevated to high and highly responsible offices?should they see a man one day sit side by side with a creature whom a coroner's jury of twelve honest, intelligent men had found guilty of murder?wc say, should they see a man sit side by side with such a being, on his trial for the highest ?criminal offence, tand one for the committnl of which a man's life is forfeit both by the laws of God and man.) should they soon after sec the same man sit on the bench to try po ?r half-starved wretches for steal ing clothes to rover their nakedness from the pieretng winter's cold, or food to save them from famishing? should they see him again placed in a highly lucrative and responsible office by the votes of a moral and religions eommHnity? will they Rot exclaim to one another, " Let us also commit murder?or at least aid and ain't those who do commit murder, in order that wealth and honors may be showered upon us and our posterity forever T' M ore Shiv Plastics Frauds.?Since our visit to four er fiveof these infamous establishments, no less than two of the number have shut up shop; swindled an many pirsons as they could, out of as much as they could, and the conductors have fl. d from the city. The others have resorted to "diversand sundry" means to raise the wind and keep their heads above water or a short time longer. Some have paid thcloaftr newspapers to putr them, and publish an editorial endorsement of their rcspcc tnbilily. Sonic have hired an Englishman to strike ofi copper ro.ns worth about half a cent, which they arc deluging the city with, and with which they pre tend to redeem their paper trash; thus substituting one description of filth for another. But they are all worthless?all alike illegal?and should all be reject ed by every honest tradesman and member of the community, for the purpose of checking the career of " Humbug, Impudence, Roguery A Co." Bnt the la test and most bn < fared plan we have heard of to re deem these worthless rags has been put in practice by n set of fellows who have been issuing bills similar to the following :? ftsseooeoooeaoooeoeeosoooeo " capital stock 2'1P,00W. 12t!i Sept. 1PS7. 0 " No. 48. ? _ The hrsrrr bus deponiied wilb the MR. ?

Dun ning, dealer in foreign fruits, groceries, Ac., 70 Ful ton street, during the absence of his father. The lat ter, on seeing the rag m his drawer, immediately walk ed to the office of these worthies, 211J Greenwich sttoet, and requested them to exchange their "pro mise to pay," for something more SHbstannal. A pale fared, down looking man, eyeing askance a dirty boy in the office, asked if thsre was any money or hand, either in th# till or elsewhere. The boy, well aware, we presume, that there was a beggarly account of empty drawers, (always excepting the presence of of their own abinplasters, of which, doubtiese, they have enough to pave or plaster their way to purgato ry,) the boy, at the aforesaid question, stood aghast looked "unutterable things, and after some little by-play, and some considerable ei^ns, mumtneryand free masonry between the precious pair, the elder? not in Israel, but in iniquity?made quick movement, like St. Pierre in the play, as much as to say, "My thought is come!" Whereupon he snatched up the ragged "promise to pay" in his left and pen in his right, and put on a face like the head paying teller of the United States Bank, exclaiming, "a forgery?a gross forgery?a most vile forgery.!" Upon which he drew three b;g black lints across the face of the rag, expunged the "promise," and put the possibility of "pay" beyond the reach of probability. Mr. D. re monstrated and told him the bill was as genuine as any~issued from that establishment, and that to re deem them by pronouncing them forgeries, was nearly allied to swindling and robbery. The fellow coolly observed?"It's my privilege, and one which we possess in common with all other banks." " Ranks, indeed," said Mr. D. " you're a set of in famous knaves and cheats, and I h .ve u great mind to take my change out of your dirty hide Upon this the follow hoisted signals ofdistrcse, and three or four loafers, standing six feet without their shoes, came to his assistance, from a back room, and M\ I), left the place without any redress. So it is, and so it is like to be, as long as the public allow themselves to he imposed upon. But the re medy is in their own hands. Take none of them? invariably refuse them all. No one expects to find one of these shuiplaster societies alive and kicking on New Year's day. We beg pardon?perhaps if some of them get their just dues by that dc.y, they may be just alive, and kicking furiously, that is, if the proper authorities do not tie their legs to keep them from struggling during the dt aih struggle.

We presume the Florian had a Jersey lonfcr on board. Our New York pilots neither run into ships nor run them ?shore ; the Jersey loafers do both, and we expect, before winter is over, they will add to their iniquities by drowning two or three hundred unoffending pas sengers. _ Operatic.?They are going to give the dillettonti of Philadelphia a great treat in the revival of ihe original Hon Giovanni of Mozart, uncaBlri?.'?^t ot.lUe Chcs nut street Theatre.

This is truly the land of promise, flowing with milk and honey?the delight of all nations, and a light to them that sit in darkness. It is the realization of the Utopia of the politicians, and a more productive El Dorado than the early adventurer could navo pictured in their wildcat dreams. No wonder then that it should be overrun by herds of humbugs, and dura tion d Industrie whom Europe sends forth from it* lank and teeming soil, to devour every green thing, like the caterpillars of Egjp', (where, bye the bye, there was not much verdure to feed upon except " in the land of Goshen, where there was gr.i?a, ) and make their fortunes by dint of eharlatanerie, where the modkst, retiring, and exauiplcry starve in silence and solitude, because they disdain to resort to the at tifices of presumptuous ignorance and impudent im position. In this country, where virtuous merit when known is always sure to vindicate to itself the public appro bation, respoct, and support (of which no greater proof can be exhibited than the Herald, and the influ ence it exercises over the mindsof scores of thousands in every quarter of the land,) it is miraculous with what avidity we hasten to accept (he pretsnsiona of eviry foreigner at the standard his modesty affixes to them, and then give him a currency through society when his own rudacity drew ont Ins passport, and our credulity and innocence countersigned it.
