MORNING HERALD.
vo?.u?. NEW YORK, WEDNESDAY MORNING, MAY 2, 1838. ?????.
N?tle? to Country Subscribers.
Hereafter whenever nny country subscription to the
Hsrald, reaches a fortnight of its close, subscribers
will receive their papers, done up in yellow wrajrpers.
This plan is adopted in order to give our patrons, in
the country, notice, either to renew their subscription
by a fresh remittance, or to expect it to cease at tne
close of the period for which it had been paid. Sub
scribers, will, therefore, understand, after this notice,
what is meant by receiving their papers done up in
yellow wrapping paper.
By this method wc furnish individual subscribers
with u proper notice, without putting them to the ex
pense of postage, and thus shave Amos Kendall, by
way of requital for his shaving so often our subscri
ber. T le fashionable morals of the present day, as
aanctioned by the Honorable the Kitchen Cabinet,
?rc to chea' as much as you can, so that the law
does not reach yoi:. I do not practice on this princi
ple to any extent, except when I have dealings with
the Kitchen?and on such occasions it is adopted
purely in self defence?if you dont shave you'll get
?haved. Every day 1 am receiving .ettera complain
ing that the Herald has failed, when, at the same
tirre, I know full well that it is regularly mailed.?
Why these complaints'? F.ceause many of Amos's
oub-trcasnrcrs will be looking into the Herald, to sec
the lineaments of th ir master accurately depicted.
They read, laugh, hut forget to put the Herald into Ks
wrapper again. Hercalter 1 beg them as a favor?as
a personal ,avor to me?to try to be as honest as they
can. I know they have precious little of that article ;
bet a precious little is better than none.
To the People ot tlic United State*.
The New York state elections, wnich take place in
November next, will determine the aseendancy, either
of the whig or of the democratic party in this state,
and this decision in New York will inevitably give the
next presidency, in the election of 1840, either to elo
quent Henry Clay of Kentucky, or cunning Martin
Van Buren of Kinderhook.
At the recent olection in this city, both parties were
nearly equally balanced, the actual difference not be
ing 160 votes in 40 000?a mere trifle in popular
contests. The position of both parties is believed to
be similar throughout the state?that is to say, neck
and neck, tail and tail?very like a whale, and very
like n whale.
In this condition of things, the Editor and Proprie
tor of the New York Herald, having pity for the
ignorance of man, and love for the beauty of
woman, will turn somo of his attention to politics
during the next six months?not as a partisan,
for he has too much experience ever to bs a
partisan?but as a philosopher, as a patriot, as
an independent, thinking, and reflecting being?an
animal that may be called a phenomenon in human
affairs. The history of the various movements of
both parties, in every part of the state, from this time
up to November next, will be faithfully collected, re
corded, compared and commented on in this paper.
We shall investigate and analyze the results of tke
last few years, and endeavor to place, accurately and
fully before our reader*, the state of the question, each
day, each week, or each month, as the new events
fum upon the tide of time, like dead mackerel with
their white bellies uppermost, on the tide of the eter
nal ocean. It will be, in fact, such a peri dical, phi
losophical analysis of the political elements, heaving
and throwing in this state, as we daily give of the
financial elements, rushing and raging throughout the
nation.
In aid of this project-perfectly original in this
country?we desire independent men of both parties,
and in every county?such men as love beautiful truth
with rapture, and adore more beautiful woman with a
deeper rapture?to forward us information in detail of
the several diwricta, so that by comparng the whole
in this great central point of thought and beaaty, we
may be able to reach some probable and accurate opi
nion as to the result of the next strte election, and
<hc fate of Francis Granger and William L. Marcy
in November, involving as it does the fate of Henry
Clay and Martin Van Huren in 1840.
We are on the sve ef a greater movement in New
York, nnd deeper excitement in the Union, than any
country has ever aeun since the call of Abraham.
The preliminary contest for November begins this
day the work. Both parties, wu learn, intend to ce
lebrate the recent victory?both claiming it to be
theirs?and both swearing, like moss troopers on a
foray, that tkey will carry New York next fall, per
fat mut >ief*t, which being interpreted in the locofoco
vernacular, meana?"agin all naisr."
The Herald Shipping List: oa Bennett's Ame
rican S itpino I. ST.?We intend as toon as possi
ble to issue on Saturday evening of every week, m a
single sheet, comprised in the Evening Herald *f that
day, the " Herald Smippiso List," or " Bennett's
American Smippino List," for the use and conve
nience of shipping and general merchants, both of
th s and of other countries. It will comprise all the
ship news of the wee*, combined in one sheet, and
arranged on a plan entirely new?a alight specimen
of which we have given during the last two days in
our Morning Herald. At present, our Weekly Her
ald contains all the literary, philosophical, political,
monetary and commercial intelligence, exclosire of
the slop news, whirh is valuable. The want of room
coinp Is us to exclude this large mass of authentic
?mpping intelligence. Oar purpose is to remedy this
evil, by the publication, in one aheet, of all the ahip
new* of the week, digested and arranged in such a
way aa to aave trouble and time to the commercial
xea dir.
I'hie sheet will be the sue of the daily Herald, and
will be sola at fieo cent* per aopy, or tl 00 per an
num for sabacribera at a distance, payable in ad
vance.
In addition to all the shipping intelligence of the
week, it will contain the news of the day on which it
is published?each Saturday, up to the elosi of bust
fleas.
Not one of the Iraat important features of this sheet
is ita cheapness, commned with its aoeuracy and com
prehensiveness. It will be a specimen of the philo
sophy of news and shipping intelligence.
Our men* to execute this purpose are many and am
ple. We own a most excellent News Boat Establish
ment, equipped and manned in fine style. It is atl
our own We have besides an arrangement with the
term f'lht Honts of New York, froru whom we pro
cure al" the shipping intelligence they ran rake and
?crape in the c lurse of the week. The New York
Pilots arv the meat gallant aet of fellows in existence,
and we always treat them aa they deserve. By these
means we can, and have frequently outstripped every
other paper in New York, in the amplitude and accu
racy wf our ship news. The concentration of these
efforts in a single sheet, will be of manifest advantage
to merchants throughout the Union, and throughout
Europe.

Private CorimpoHdcacCi
Jonksboro, (Texas,) March 26, 1338.
James Gordon Hrnnett, K*u
Dear Sir,?I have just sat down with my head
full of ideas, aid my pen full of ink, to drop you a few
lines under the privilege of an old friend; and with
the assurance of my own convalescence, let me couple
my best wishes for your present and future welfare;
for truly can 1 say with the great prince of Scottish
poetry and song?
" God grand that yp're as well's I wish y?,
Ami ilirn ye'll do '
The Herald?the nil ultra of wit, sentiment and
satire ?the multum in yarvu of genuine literature?
has just been received at this office. It meets with
unanimous approbation here; and I should not be
surprised, if ere king, you ore driven to the, no doubt,
very unpleasant duty of putting rp a large package for
this office. We are a reading community ; and 1
must say, on the part of my telluvv citizens, we poa
s< H8 some taste in the choice of our reading, as well
m politics as polite literature.
Th< re are in this vastly magnificent world,n vast fa
mily ofvast conceptions; and sometimes these treach
erous little bantling* of hope extend their familiarity so
fnr that they actually drive reason froru her throne,and
bid her crouch, a secondary personage, at the foot
stool of their power. These bright and beautiful con
ceptions, rding like Venus, in a cur of fancy through
the empire of thought, sometimes run (like a strnrn
boat lately on Red River) against a snag; and then
thuy find themselves (as the tories of New York lately
found themselves,) most extensivily r.on^loirorijied
and diacomboblifirated. Then it is that reason re
gains lu-r Manual reign, and points these wreck less
little wranglers of the brain to the dunco block in the
school of experionci ; and they very soon find, as
Prentice (the Dean Swift of the west,) says of a cer
tain General, in a certain cypress swamp in Florida,
there arc no laurels to he found there.
iNow 1 imagined mysclfat a hail lately, where beauty
seemed to have gathered together her brightest fa
vorites. The hall (ofcourse a magnificent one,) was
beautifully illuminated with chandeliers, which seem
ed to send forth a tlood of light, in derison of both
night and day. Musis echoed around the hall in
more harmonious chords than Orpheus ever drew.?
The beautiful partner, to whom I had pledged my
hand, (only for the first dance) was before me, bright
as the Houns, lovely as Diana, chaste as the snows
of Caucasus, a d pure as an icicle. I gazrd upon her
?1 was spell-bound! Thinks 1 to myself?
God*, I'll marrj
Like a fairy she glided before me through the mnzes
of (hat eventful dance. 1 handed for to a seat?we
talked, poetically, of things past, present, and to come;
and we seemed gliding in Cleopatra's boat over a
smooth sea of love to the haven of matrimonial bliss.
She siehed?I kissed her hand ! ? ? * At this
momenta tall, gaunt, sub treasury excuse for a man,
stepped up to me. and said, "Sir, I must acknowledge
my obligations for your attention to my lady during
the evening, and have come to relieve you from fur
ther trouble;" 'hen turning to the lady, "Mrs. ,
the carriage is wailing.?Sir, 1 must wish you a good
evening;" and they left the room. I was, as the suc
cor would say, completely encumflunctificated. I
gar d upon the receding form of the gay enchantress
?my heart, which had turned at least 510 somersets
during the evening, writhing under the humilinling
consciousness of having been (like a certain celebrated
Colonel in your country) deserted! and forced upon
my inind tlio truth, that
" Mm it a vipor, and full ?f woe*}
Me rsli a rap. r and down lie g?e?."
And now, my dear Sir, having taken a strong dis
taste' > thane soft and tender attentions to the ladies,
especially married ladies, 1 have formed a conclusion
to d? like yourself, (for I know of no person more wor
| thy of imitation) live on tn " single blessednessfor
I cannot ewnscnt to become an Anthony, renounce
the world fi>r a woman, no more than would a rascally
office holdrr give up his office and become an honest
and independent man.
And now. Sir, permit me to extend to you the right
hand of friendship in bachelorhood; hoping that
should you ? v- r fall a prey lo the artfuldesignaof any
of those gay, brght-cyed beauties residing and being
in the Second Ward, thai you will speedily publish, in
the Hcrtld. the Hvmenial Scene in " the Bold Stroke
for a Wife," and y<?ur humble servant will not renig,
though he play a King to catch a queen.
I am, dear Sir, very truly, yours,Ac.
