The progress of tilings was faithfully registered in the
four editions of the Herald. See them and read them.
At the fall of the day, the vote in the several wards, as
ascertained by our couriers extraordinary, stood thus.
It is compared with that of the second dsy in 1834.
Make your own deductions, Liberals, and do not dag
in your exertions. You have nothing to fear in a
cause like yours, but the consciousness of your own
gigantic strength. But here is tho vote. Read, re

your heads.

Look at the falling off in the vote of the 1st, 3d,

ground you now occupy. Learn a lesson from this
comparison. It is an anomaly worthy of your utmost

Progrrmi oftlie Contest?Iucidenta? Bulletin
Xo. 3, 4 o'clock, P. M.?Position of the
c lli^r re uu.
Our couriers were last with us at half prist 3, P. M.
They give us the most important intelligence. Every
thing argues for the success of the Liberals. Tlte To
ries are dispirited, and drawing off their forces in self
defence, while their opponents are pushing forward to
make good their vantage ground. In every ward they
are seen rank ami tile in battle array, displaying their
banueis. They come up manfully to the contest. No
thing deters them. They are resolved to win the battle
and they will.
The Tories have blown their last trumpet. Their
musicians can no longer play in time nor tune. Their
YVikee^Doodle degenerates tuto God save the Usurers.
In groups, are seen the defenders of the usury cause,
canvassing the chances of victory. When they meet a
Liberal, they thrust a bet at him, and as speedily back
out, if it is taken up. The Liberals arc making war upon
all the rotten systems of gambling, with the Albany Ar
gus into the bargain. They don't bet, we hear, for they
know their streuglli and would chide the imbecility that
takes shelter behind a wager. They wish loare opinion
free as the air. It has been fettered here long eaough|
God knows, by Bank Regency and Croswell cliques. Let
it be cut loose from {..peculators and their abettors fur
ever. No wonder the Tories dread the result of this
contest. It will drive thein from the laud ofCauaan,wuicli
they have long defiled, into the cities of refuge beyond
the East Uiver. On Thursday morning, you will see
them crossing this Jordan in thousands, from Fulton
market ami the .South Ferry.
The progress of this election proves mure clearly
than ever, liberal reader, how intimate is the alliance
between the advocates of Bank jHiwcr. No matter un
der what banner they fought, they always kissed the
rod that grew and blossomed and (tore fruit in the Re
gency soil. It was not Aaron's rod, but Nick Diddle s rod,
the Regency rod, the speculator's md. You are right,
Liberals, to rise in the majesty of your power and to
smite these wicked Israelite* with the rial that they
have time out of mind chastised you with. Lay it on
their unanointed hacks well. Make them smart with
the pain that you have er*t felt, when they wickedly
shaved you out of millions and cheated you ont of mil*
lions by lending money to usurers and suspending spe
cie payments. The reports of ottr couriers extraordi

freemen and reeording your displeasure. That is

Oua New Exfkbbs Sybtbm.?The establishment
of a numerous corpt of Express ridera, to visit the
polls, and concentrate the intelligence of the election
at the Herald Office, every two hours, has amused
and startled every body in town.
1 have organized a system of physical and intellec
tual power, in attaining and discriminatwig correct in
formation, without a paiallel in the history of the
newspaper press. At my office the double cy Under
press, driven by a steam engine, is in motion nearly
night and day to print off a greater edition than any
newspaper in the world attempted before. Saddle
horses, waggons, carriages, and every kind of con
veyance are put in reqiisition to facilitate this unpre
cidented improvement in the press.
One hour after sundown on Monday night, we had
tho returns from every ward in the city, a thing which
neither the Masonic or Tammany Committees had.
The Wall street papers actually stole the returns from
our Bulletin Board, by a set of loafers they sent to
Little Wall street to see if they could pick up any of
the crumbs that fell from our intellectual table.
Yet the system I have adopted for the city isonly
the beginning of a new and extraordinary system of
obtaining and disseminating intelligence, whicli I
shall put into operation next yearat the State Gover
nors election, and in 1646 at the approaching Presi
dential contest. 1 shall have my newspaper system
fully established by that time, having by the present
experiment already devised numerous improvements.
The deep interest felt in this election, setting aside
the abstract result, has been mainly produced by the
system of the Herald. We have communicated to
our election, all the interest, thrilling interest, which
attend a battle that is to decide the fate of nntions.
The history of these trois jours will forma new spe
cies of literature, never before dreamed of! by the
loafers of the press. Our rapid, exciting, amusing
narrative, will be read with as deep an interest next
week, or next century, as it will be today. It has all
interest of a novel, of a heroic poem of an original
drama. More wit, humor, sarier vivre, anecdote, and
incident, have been picked up by our talented corps of
reporters than ever was supposed to attend any civil
contest, or could be imagined by any man of genius.
The many ladies throughout the city, whatever their
prejudices may be against the vulgar nature of poli
tics, have discovered a new world in the amusing and
exciting narrative of the last two days.
Thus we go, beating every thing by the superior
generalship and system in which we conduct our
affaire. 'Tis the cash system as opposed to tho cre
dit system of the usurers at Masonic Hall. Let every
man stick to cash.
Histobv of the Hebrew Women.?We intend
in a few days, to give a brief and comprehensive his
torical sketch of the beauty, genius, and extraordi
nary character of Hebrew Women, from the tiraa of
Sarah, down to the present day.
A philosophical history of the female character,
and particularly of the Hebrew female character,
will illustrate two-thirds of the genius of that civiliza
tion which we enjoy at the present day. Among the
Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, the female character
was in shackles. The civil polity of Kgypt, on this
peculiar point, was borrowed by Moses, but after a
struggle of several ages, the liberty and genius of
woman were a triumph in the reign of Augustus
Through all the ancient writings of the Hebrews,
the humanity and civilization?the genius and heroic
character of the Hebrew women burst out with bril
liancy, without a parallel among nations. Who has
forgotten the song of Mariaml who the singular he
roism and ambition of Esther? who the bravery of
Judith and Susan 1 Throughout the whole history of
the Jews, up to the destruction of the temple by the
king of Babylon, the events among that people
sprung from a social contest between tho spirit of the
sexes for an equality in mutual endearment and social
existence. After their return from their captivity, up
to the tuna of the Virgin Mary, and her mysterious
conception, the history of the Jews presented an un
interrupted series of vulgar conteata, parly feuds, and
bloody civil wara. Towards the age of Augustus,
the general belief of an approaching Messiah, caused
to startup myriads of pretenders, until John and Je
sus both appeared in the great movement of revels
tion. At this time the peculiar character of the He
brew women broke out with astonishing splendor.
To the early instrnctiona of Mary the Virgin, whose
character was a model of punty, dignity, good sense,
and great mind, we msy suppose her son was in
debted for his peculiar love, esteem, and respect for
tin- character of the sex.
The first germ of real civilization?to say nothing of
revolution, which we leave to 'he clergy? was deve
loped in the assemblages of female converts and fe
male disciples who maintained and followed the
great being through the winding valea of Palestine.
In the sermons of this extraordinary personage, are to
be seen the first germs of the emancipation of wo
man, from being a slave to be the equal and friend of
man. This feature may be considered the great so
cial movement begun in that age, accumulating in
energy and power, till it tinned wiih the mysterious
spirit of the Germans of the nertb, and produced the
age of chivalry. From that day up to the present,
the Hebrew women, living under the old dispensa
tion of Moses, which was Egyptian in its origin, have
occasionally shown symptoma of claiming their
birthright and ef showing the aame spirit of their ex
traordinary countrywoman, the Blessed V irgin, the
btan ideal of all the chivalry of the middle ages, and
in point of fact, one of the most original female
germs that ever appeared in the world.
We hnvc seme notions of our own on theae excit
ing topics, which we shall reveal aad explain at our
leisure. To Mary of Bethlehem arc the women of
the present age indebted for the very position they
occupy in our social system.
Oleste In Parli and l.ondon.
We were the first to announce to tins lady's ad
mirers in America, hsr immense success in the capitals
of France and Kngland. In the Journal Des Debate
we find the following notice of Celeate'a appearance
at the (Jrand Opera : ?
" The house w as crowded, as well it might he, to
welcome this child of our native laud. She appeared
a* I,a Hayadere. We have seen a hundred and one
dancers in this character, but we have never sctn
more than two originals,?Taglioni and Duvrmav.
Klliol is the third. Accustomed as we were to the
light grace and lightning like movements of Taglioni.
and to the cold elegance of Davernav, the noite ancl
bold outline of the character as given by Celeste, filled
up with the warmest and most feeling touches, caught
as hy surprise, and won the approval of all heads and
hearts alive to the conceptions of genius."
In the Times, we find the following notice of our
favorite : ?
"The whole weight of tho Drama (the Child of the
Wreck), rests on Madame Celeste, whose "dumb
show," unlike that which Shakespeare speaks of, is
any thing but " inexplicable." She expressed, hy her
varied and appropriate action, and by her sw.ftly
changing features, the various passions of love, des
pair, indignation and ioy, with touching fidelity. She
was loudly applauded.'
With these evidences of the jwat appreciation of
Madame Celeste's powers in F.orope we are well sa
tisfied. Kvery American must he sslisfled. Wr say
now, as we aai'l before, that Mrs Rllrott has just be
gun a career 'hat is to elevate the art she professes
far above the mere position " of the fantastic toe}"?
she will give to dancing an intellectual tone and cha
racter. ^
Masonic Hall.?The hall waa crowded last night
with the friends of the Bank-System, shavers, and
others who went there out of curiosity.
"The roof is fretted," said one person in the crowd.
"Yes and so will those be now under it," when the
election is over, said another.
Hugh Maxwell was called to the chair, among the
Vice Presidents was a Mr. Robinson. Verily the

remind the multitude of the
The very name conjured up at once Thomas street
?the unfortunate Ellen Jewett?the gash?the death
gash?the flames?the culprit?the indignation of the
whole city?the trial and the defender of the culprit.
There is a fatality in this bad cause, or the party would
never act so indiscreetly.
Mr. Maxwell told the multitude that the party (the
Usury) papers were very sanguine of success, antici
pating several thousand majority. He said he did not
believe they would get it. Sensible man Mr. Max
well. He thought the struggle would be close?very
sensible, indeed, Mr. Maxwell. He said, moreover,
that if the party did not come up strong this day
against the Liberals they would repent it in dust and
ashes. A most remarkably sensible man, Mr. Max
well?"A Daniel come to judgment; yen, a Daniel."
Hear this ye Liberala. Quail ye bankites?ye mo
nopolists. Your own speaker?your darling?your
Hugh Maxwell fears it will be close.
Liberals to the polls?take what Mr. Maxwell says
for granted?and while it seconds your own belief)
and your honest aspirations, think that the election
may be close, and crowd to the polls. One day's
struggle, and the victory is yours. Corruption is tot
tering on its high seat. The mushroom aristocracy of
New York has sprouted too early?the frost is nipping
it. It has ventured
" Like little wauton boys who swim on bladders."
The bladders are failing them and they are out of
their depth.
Liberals ye have " scotched the snake, not killed
it." You will do this to day if you do your duty.
" Nought shall yon rue,
11 to yourselves do you remain but true.'
How it Works ?At I was pasting up Broadway
yesterday, a spruce footman took off his hat, and told
mc that Madame wanted to speak to me.
" Who is Madame V aeked I.
"It is so and so."
" Where is she?"
" She is in the carriage close by."
J approached, bowed, and looking in, rocognised a
fashionable lady of my acquaintance, who had with
her in her carriage, a beautiful daughter and an equally
beautiful young niece.
"How do you do, Mr. B. ?" said she.
"Very well, I thank you, madam," bowing to the
" How is the election going on 1" asked the young,
lovely daughter, with a sweet smile.
"Do you take an interest in the election?" asked I.
"Certainly," replied her mother. "The amusing
narrative you published this morning of the humora
of the city, highly interested all of us."
"I thought an election was a very dull affair," said
the lovely daughter, putting her veil half over her
beautiful features, "but I find you make it quite
"I am glad it pleases you," said I.
" Call and see us," said the stately matron, "but
don't put ua into the Herald."
"Oh!" said the lovely niece, " how I should like to
be in the Herald, just to see how it feels."
"I have been several times," said the blushing
" And how did it feel ?" asked I.
"Oh ! I can't tell?'tis so queer?it makes one as
light as a fairy for a whole day."
" Well then," said I, " you shall be a fairy to a ro
"Oh!" said she, blushing.
"Oh, fie! Mr. B." said the mother with a smile.
"Oh! excellent, Mr. B." said the sweet nieee?"do
as you please and I will electioneer for the Liberals."
" And so will I," said the daughter.
" I will?I will."
We bowed all to each other, and the carriage drove
over the rattling stones like lightning. All the gay,
dazzling, bono too us, intellectual young ladies are in
favor of the liberal cause. We cannot fail.

[Correspondence of lhe Herald.]
Kihobtok. Ja., Oct. 10, 1837.
Wo are here all on the >/ui tire, hnving just con
cluded the elections. The assembly meets on the
24th, for the actual " despatch of public busineer."
We have several new mcmbrrs, returned j amongst
them a Mr. Richnrd Hill, "i#rspecial magistrate,"
and gtntltman of colour. We have also two or
three more radical a returned, and we are threatened
with an attempt to end the apprenticeship system in
August, 1810, at which time the non prandial appren
tices will be free; as I preaumeyou sre nware the
prsedials arc to rema n apprentice* till 1840. Tk ra
dicals and baptist preachers have no doubt unsettled
the minds of the prmdiale, and by some fcara are en
tertained there will be an nttempt at rebellion in Au
gust next. We, however, have the sa isfaction of
knowing that we have a majority of conservatives in
fhc avaembly, and that no attempt to shorten the ap
prenticeship, or to promote rebellion, will meet with
anv encouragement from the home government.
There is a rumor a Host that our Governor, Sir Lio
nel Smith has sent home his resigna'inn?we hope
there may be no truth in the report. He has shown
himself to be a man of touch good aense, and of a
frank, manly, aoldicr-ltke deposition. Ilia adminia
trmtion, with one or two exceptions, has given uni
versal satisfaction. We have had terrifically hot
weather in the last month, and the island has been,
and still is (intho inland parts) very eickljr.
The captain of the American packet ship Kmily is
in some difficulty here, having had a dispute with one
of his passengers, Doctor Stennett, a hightly respect
able gentleman of the parish of St. Ann's. It is stated
that Captain Grovea has behaved very imprudently,
and ia likely to "pay the piper." He placed Doctor
Stennett in irons, and confined hirn untill the arrival
ef the vessel here. Public feeling is much against
Captain Groves, and we much regret the occurrence.
Your Herald is as popular and as much sought for
as ever here. You really ought to establish an
agency. It is a delightful paper?so airy, light and
poetical, and yet containing so much valuable in
formation and philosophic matter, that it is without
doubt the ne plus ultra of newspapers. Pray do net
omit sending files by every vessel.

The organ of the United States Bank, Blcknoll's Report* r,

we go. The baak* are never to resume till Mr. B. savs so.
This is natural. The greater power ean and utuvt always go
vern the less. But we look to the approaching Convention of
Banks with hope, as we are sure their proco'dings, if they do
not efl'ect a resumption, will wake up the public to Mr. Bid
die's position and force him to return loan honest course. Mr.
B. must be taught that a higher power exists in this country
