? ? ???-gg??????' THi atlDAT, APRIL I. I?M. Mr. Wmiim'i SrBRCH?So?irrtiiM? ??ttr* i* Dsrmari ? Without any cmmtmy or etrcualocu Uom. we beg leave moet respectfully, not intending to Civ* Um leaf offence to any peraon having the slight eat etaim to moral* and good manner*?u? auue poai tiveljr, disunctly, aad openly, that thePoat Office at Washington ha? been guilty of a breach of duty, of Um worst kind ef which auch a rotten concern ta ca pable The facta are these. Knowing the great anxiety ?m?ngaJI men of intelligence, not infected with the lo c-?f*coher<?y,tobavean early peruaal o* Mr.W.'agrcat ?perch on the currency, we wrote to Washington to a gentleman octnp* tent to grant the request, asking one of the first cepies that might be isaued from the press. On Monday we received a letter, dated at Washing ton on Sundny, atating that "acopy woald be mailed on the day following," that is, on Monday. Accor dingly we made preparations, by engaging exira hands, to lasne the speech yesterday morning as soon na any other paper. On Tuesday night our employe? wrre all 'eady. At the usual hour on Wednesday m<?rning early, about 2 o'clock, the mail came in from W ashington?our employe* applied to the Poet Office here, but the reply was that " none were received lor the Herald.' By the same mail, however, we receiv ed a letter from a member 01 Congress, intimating tkat a copy had been deposited for us ;n Washington on Monday, and, of course, we ought to have receiv ed it on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, in time to meet our preparations for an issueon Wednes day f ?ri noon. But it did not come. Now ihe question is how catne our packages to be delayed by the Post Office ? We do not believe that it occurred in the office here?they are too polite and a< rommodatmg, and knew their duty too well, to per petrate auch a thing. Where then could it have oc curred I Unquestionably at Washington, in the very hot bed of Post Offii-e corruption. What could be the Motive of such conduct ? The election takes place here nest week. Dj the employia of Amos Kendall dare to prev- nt the circulation of Mr. Webster's speech because the dissem nation of truth may affect their views? It really has that appearance. We ehall inquire further into this business, and pursue it to the back bone. P. IS. Since the above was written wc hsve received two copies, a half a any after the fair. It is as we surmised? nil owing to the carelessness of the Wash ivgton Post Office. Where's the remedy ? Political Prospects?The Approaching Elec tion. W<? have been requested from various quarters, and by men of nil paries, to state candidly, honestly, and clearly, what our impressions are, touching the elec tion that will take place in this city for Mayor and Aldermen next week. We have no objections. We acknowledge no tram mels?and no rrservations. We are beyond the reach of all and every party, and can afford to tell tho truth of all. Our support comes from men of intelligence, independent in thought, honorable in principle, deny ing the right and authority of any party to check the nataral operations of thought and mind. Let us pro ceed, therefore, and state the case fully and philoso phically. Both parties have nearly completed their nomina tions?and both have held their general public meet ings. Among the whips there has been a good deal of zesl, hnt the crowd* and animation in Masooie Hall have 110'. been equal to those of the democrats ?t Tnnnnanv Hall. l>ut dutetls. Since the last election, the Tammany party has been at work, night and day, in season, and out of season. They have brought the Custom House, by the removal of Mr. Swartwout, and the appointment of Mr. Hoyt, to bear most essentially on the move ments of parties. They have also availed them selves of the unfortunate and bloody business of Mr. Webb, at Washington, and the still more ridiculous publications made by .Mr. Charles King and his silly clique, apologising for conduct that never can be smoothed over. On the bank question, they hav# alao used, most dexterously, the personal and male volent conduct of the Board of Trade towards the Phenix Bank?the ridiculous sentiments of "Sid ney," in th? "Commercial," and the equally ridicu lous fooleries of Majjr Noah, in the Star?to say nothing of the silly canduct of the Whig General Committee, which every now and then, starts up in a passion, condemning this newspaper for tbis senti ment?and that newspaper for the other sentiment. Since the triumph, so unexpectedly acquired by tiie whigs at the last fall election, no set or digue of incn have taken greater pains to damn their own cause, by every kind of selfish, foolish, personal, vin dictive course of conduct, than certain portions of those called the leaders of the whig party. The duel ofCilley and Graves, gaucherit* of the newspa* pert?the persecution of the Phenix Bank, have all been ser/. -'d upon by the democrats and turned, in every form and shape, to work for their advantage. Among the great body af the sensible whigs, these things have been pondesed on, and deplored. From these events, coupled with the seal, madness* and activity of the democrats, an impression has been generated that the whigs will lose the election in part, if not the whole?that is to say, that they may re-elect Mr. Clark aa Mayor, but that they stand a slim chance af carrying a majority of the wards, and hence getnag again the corporation w ith all its pa tronage. Now on this state af things we have our own views?and here they are. A political revolution 1 *;an in this country, with tha year 1837. During the* whole period of (Ji n- ral Jackson's two terms, the effects of his financial mea sures were not developed. The country wsa prosper ous from 1838 up to 1836, in spite of kitchen finance, in the fall of that year, the seed sown by Amos Ken dall began to shoot up, and symptom a of a revalston in trade were felt for the first time. This revulsion burst forth in great fury in the apr.ng of 1837 With this Ananrial explosion began the revolution in politi cal thought and action. The higher class# ? of society first feel the effects of a revulsion, and accordingly a strong,powerful and deep political change was work, ed in men s minds. This change took the open shape of Conatrrali*m, and is the legitimate develop# mentof the revulsion 11 trade acting upon tnen of sense. During the last year these changes hsve character ,*ed, more or Urns, every commercial state tn the Cnvtn, 111 winch elections have been held. Great ef fort have been made by the administration, to put a stop to change, by the crv of rich and poor.' " bank and anti-bank,' "democracyand ariatocracy,'"'l*idd!e and the Barings," &c. 4 The election just held m Connecticut shows that, instead of (hit great rr rotmtioP going back, it is uh?olut<>y going forward. The first eHeets of ihe revulsion tell on the higher eler*e? of merchants and traders. Kince last fall, tbes- ? fi-icts have descended to the lower ranks of so nety in their turn, and It is rapidly reaching the roan try people. In this goodly city, the revulsion has We?n more severely felt stnee last November election than ever it wm before?particularly among the low w ordera of aociety. Now, ia it to be euppoeed, for one moment,, that theee general causea can, in the approaching election here, be made to stand still like the sun at the com mand of Joshua? Can Mr. Van Barcn wield the power of the son of Nun 7 Can the Loafer of Kinder hook say to the sun of intelligence, blazing round the intellectual horizon of this republic?" Stand still! oil! sun, over my cabbage gardens in Kinderhook, and set net, till 1 secure New York !" We do not believe it possible?and the recent election in Con necticut is a fresh argument in favor of this view. Front these views, reasons, and arguments, we, therefore, inform our readers here and elsewhere, that, aa the great social and financial mouvement is wuh the whigs, the probability isthatfAey will carry the city next week, out and out, hip and thigh ? Mayor and Corporation. If the whigs do not carry every thing, with such chances in their favor, it will be owing entirely to their own lukewarniness, their own folly, their own mismanagement; and any par ty, so marr.ng pood fortune, ought to be demolished for good and all. At least, the whips may rely on this?if they do not succeed next week, and elect tri umphantly their Mayor, and a largo majority of the Corporation, they may expect one of the severest cas sations from the Herald that any clique, set, or body of men ever yet got. The libels that we once per petrated against John Haggerty, Joe Hoxie, and other nnocents wont be " a circumstance," as they say in Ouiscousin, to what we shall lay upon the naked backs of the recreant whig party, leaders, whippers in and all. So they had as well get up early in the morntng and fight the pood fight. By licking the locofocos, ikey will escape a licking from the Her ald. So, go to bed Tom. Feast of Shells.?The following is the polite in v Ha lion to which we alluded yesterday: ? Albany, March SO. 1831. Si*,?

Prince he Joinville, and the Party in his Honor.?On the occasion of the Prince dc Jomville's arrival in this city, which is expected daily, the loyal French inhabitants intend to give him such a dinner as shall eclipse every thing of a public nature ever at tempted here. In comparison with this, the Astor House dinner to Mr. Webster, last November, will be a mere luncheon?a common every day affair. Tic kets twenty dollars a head; and no pains will be spared to make the concern as refined and elegant as possible. It was in contemplation to have given a ball; but as the committee of arrangements would have had to designate the iadies with whom tne Prince should dance, and as they are not sufficiently numer- j ous of the elite, this project was given up. That it will be a splendid affair, we doubt not. Juvenile Concert at Madame Chrgaray's. in lloiuUii (tract. Therein nothing in this country that has attained to such a degree of excellence as the seminaries for young indies; and Mew York as usual takes the lead ! in iIhi elegance and refinement wnh whieh tliese in- [ aliiutiona are conducted. Every thing that was taught in the famous French convents, by the daughters ot | the poor but nohle families, before the iievulutmn nb?- I lishrd them, is learned in the New York establish- I ments, with a superior finish, and a tournurc more ! adapted to an improved social system, and a more j solid polish of lashisn and manners. All tli? branches wf an ornamental education, calculated to endow the pupil wnh a graceful case of manners, and that unerring tact which has only heretofore n m qjired by a long intercourse with the world, is now obtained by the ordinary routine of study, in which the usages of society are introduced, and the forria of the drawing room acquired, at the same time that the mina is stored with exquisite literature, and those use ful and more substantial acquisitions which qnahty the fair buds of beauty to be ministering angels of domestic comfort and happiness, as well as Graces and Muses in the pleasure* and enjoyment* of exist ence. Undeniably the most reehercht institution of the kind in New York is that of Madame FulgenceChe gurny, in Houston street, where the accustomed course of tuition is varied by halls and concerts, in which an exhibition is practically made of those accomplish ments which are acquired theoretically in the school room, and the routine of education delightfully diver sified by a glimpse into the gay vista of fashionable Ire, of whieh the fair exhibitants ore hereafter to be came the d.amatis persona*. One of these was given last Friday eveaing, and ws have much pleasure in devoting a portion ot our columns to the pleasing topic. On that evening a concert of vocal and instrumen tal music was given by Madame Chegaray's pupils, at the house in Houston slraet, which present).d a brilliai.t appearance, being crowded by the friends wf the young ladies, and the lovely crentures themselves, radiant in youth and beauty, and palpitating with that natural and graceful timidity winch sits so well upon their delightful sex, whose blushes upon such occasions are like the roseate tints which lie hidden in the recesses of the Indian ahull. The programme was divided into two pans; the first of which was thua arranged. PAST L Mm P. B ? Lc Chalet RonUo, ? ? llert. " M. W.?,\|f, IimIimm. ? ? ? ? Lentoinr. " C. P ? It it the II'-sr. ...

We should have been much pleased to have gone into a more lengthened analysis of the qualities, both vocal and inslrumrntal, that were displayed in the course of the evening, as it is so pleasant to deaeunt upon excellence, and that pleasure is enhanced when ladies, young, beautiful, noire, and graceful girls are the theme. But the limits of newspaper columns are inexorable; suffice it to say, that a more pleasureable occasion could not present itself, and that it was as creditable to the city of New York, as it was to the individual ladies who took part in it, their teachers, and preceptress.

No longer since than tin* last Ceart of Sessions, a scoundrel of a negro was sent to the state priaon for seven years, for an infa j nious outrage on a yoHng white girl, who now lies in a very feeble state from the effects of his brutal treat j ment. In our paper of yesterday we reported the facts of an outrageous and indelicate astnalt com mitted on the person sf a respectable citizen's wife, on the Battery, in open daylight; and today we have to record a fact still more distressing and dreadful in its perpetration, consequences, and in every respect. A stout swarthy negro, yesterday morning, seized a lovely little girl, twelve years of age, as she was pass ing up an alley in Laurens street, and proceedud to treat her in a manner too shocking and horrible for description. The little sufferer now lies in ail almost hopeless state, so sadly and severely has *he been in jured. The black scoundrel is in bridewell. The whob affair is beyoud description.

Boar* or Aldsbmkn.- Several acts pasted by th* legislature relating to the city of New York were re ferred to the committees to which they appertained. A peiitmn from tha Asylum Committee to be em powered to remove manure from the streets to their (arm at Rloomingdale The petition was signed by Stephen Allen. Aid. Ingrahara thought that apart nf 10G0 loads of manure would be a very seasonable benefit to the asylum. Aid. Hoxie stated that a few hours ago he had seen the nam* of Stephen .Allen signed ta a document complaining of the great ex penses of the city; yet now we see him making an application by which these expenses would be in creased. He moved that it be referred to the com mitee for clearing streeta. On a division, the mouon of reference wa* lost; and Aid. Ingraham moved that the prayer of the petition be grained forthwith, the tius'ees removing the manure at their own ex p? nse. Carried. Petnion o' Thos. S. Brown to purchase lands at Brooklyn 5 remonstrance of Robt. Dys m and others, against widening Arch street; of the inhabitants of Murray Square Hill to have the proceedings for a square annulled, were presented and referred. Aid.

The Assis'ant Alderman of the Mth Ward, now,ma ted Danw l A. Robertson in opposition. A discussien arose upon this double nomination, and it was stated to be the rule that the person appo.ntcd should be of the same polities as the party who resigned. In the course of the debate it came out by a question of Al derman Vanan, that Mr. Hebertaon had been nomi nated by the whig Committee ef thedlh Ward. The name ot Mr. Avery was withdrawn, and Mr. Robert son sm appointed lo fill the office of Inspector ef elections in the 4 h Ward. John Itenwisk and Levi D. Blamnt, were proposed for the 10th Ward Al German Haxie asked, in ib? dim ?t hnven whetker tone other nomination than that af Slamm caold net be proposed ; he would go any name but that; he weuld prefer a black man to Slamm, Bang, or Mian. Messrs. Reawtck and Slamm were appointed, Ala. Hoiie dissenting. R. S. Wmalow and Julia* Hitch cock weru appointed aa Inspectors of eleetiana of the 1 lib Ward, to fill the vacancy in the 11th Ward.? Eliaha Johnson waaappointed to the aame office in the 13th Ward. Thomas Graham waa iu like man ner nominated to the same office in the ISah Ward. Samuel D. Craig waa appointed to the aame office in the 7th Ward. Jared L. Moore, waa appointed to the aame office in the bih Ward. Daniel Sparks waa appointed to the aame office in the 16th Ward. James Tilden, and George Fesscnger wore appointed to the aame office in the 17th Ward. Davd B. Keeler waa appointed to the same office in the 7th Ward. The resignation #f Thomas J. Waldron, aa Deputy Clerk of the Washington Market, waa read and re ceived. A motion waa made that Thomas C. Bar tine be appointed in hta atend. Alderman Bruen moved that the motion lie on the table, which waa lost, and the appointment waa confirmed. Isaac F. Russell was nominated lw the office of City Weigher by Alderman Hoxie. After some re- ] marks, the nomination was withdrawn. ; The resignation of Obadiah Ayers, who received the appointment as Assistant City Inspector in Sep tember, 1816, and who has held the office for 22 years, was received. It stated that the resignation was tendered on the ground of age and infirmity. On meti. n, it was ordcrea to lie on the table. On his petition to that effect, Edward Ewen was appointed City Surveyor. The report of ihe Chief Engineer was received, with a list of expulsions, resignations, and appoint ments. The Common Council then adjourned, and the Board of Aldermen resumed. The report of the Finance Committee in favor of leasing Lumber dock and basin, at the foot of 42d st. to Messrs. Mclntyredt Smith, for ten years, at #5000 a year, was read. Aid. Bruen said that the corpora tion had laid out $70,000 on this dock, and the sum of $5000 was too small a sum. The wear und tear of these docks was ten per cent per annum, and at the end of thu lease this dock would be dilapidated. He objected to Ihe confirmation of the report, unless the dock was to be given up at the expiration of the lease in good condition. He moved that it lie on the table until the next meeting ef the Board. Aid. Ingraham explained. He stated that the construction of the dock was defective, and it would require $10,000 or $15,000 more to make it proper for use. This weuld kave to be defrayed by the lessees, who did not calcu late upon receiving any profits for the first 5 years. Aid. Bruen's motion was rejected and after a length ened debate the report was adopted. The same committee reported against concurring with the Board oi Assistants to sell by auction the Red Fort, at the foot of Hubert st. Adopted. A report of the Committee on Chanty and Alms House*, concurred with the Board of Assistants in a grant of $400 to poor widows and orphans. Adopted. The Committee of Police recommended that a pen alty obtained against William Sommeis for keeping an intelligence office without license, be remitted.? Adopted. The same committee reported against the petition of George Sonne, now in prison ?n two judgments obtained against him for the same offence as the fore going. Adopted. The same committee reported in favor of discharg ing frona prison Tobias Pears&ll, on a judgment ob tained against him by the corporation for selling li quors without license, on condition that he pay the penalty and costs. Adopted. The same committee reported in the case of George WalkingluR, recommending that the corporation at torney do cancel the three judginentsobtained against hun for selling meat without license. (This is the case in which Aid. Brady was formerly alluded to; and he declined giving any opinion on that matter. It appended the testimony taken thereon.) The re port was adopted- Aid. Patterson moved to reconsi der. in order to lay the report and testimony on the table, to enable Aid. Brady to take what action he thought proper thereon. Soordered. Aldennon Patterson movtd that a select commit tee he appointed to consider and report what altera tion is necessary to be made in the salary of the wa ter commissioners. Alderman Vanan ihonght that ihe proper committee would be that of finance. Thp motion was earned. Alderman Patterson begged leave to decline being chairman of the cominittoe. Alderman Hoxie hoped he would serve, to which Al derman Phturson deferred. The select committee, as nominated by the president, consists of Aldermen Patterson, Hoxie, and Varian. [It appears that the water commissioners were appointed by ihe former board, and the dominant party wish to cut down their salaries; this explains the coquetting between Alder | men Patterson and Hoxie.] Tnu report of the street comntixee was read, ap pointing tunes for the opening of certain streets and roads. The committee of charity, &c. recommended a concurrence in the resolution of the Hoard of Assist ants, granting $400 to the widow of John Buoklolt, killed in h;? duty as a fi.vinan. .Adopted. On the application of Mr. Eldrtdge, the editor of the Times, that that paper be placed on the Itsi of those employed by the Corporation, Alderman Va rian thought that nil the other papers should share in tho same privilege. The application was referred to the Annate committee. On motion of Alderman Whitehead, doenment No. 71, to amend and modify the lawn and ordinances now in force relating to the Firs Department of the city of New York, and reduce the same into one act, was taken up, secton by section. The second sec tion, appointing thu m de and time of appointment of Engineer, gave rise to a debate of upwards of an hour, and about half a do/en amendments and re amendments. Aldermen Benson wished the members of the Fire Department to hav? the choice of offic* re; and Alderman Ingmhnm thought the Corporation had no authority to delegate to others the appointment of officers which the law vested in it Alderman Lngra ham's amendment eventually succeeded. The law consists of 61 oections, of which the Board got through six, when it waa ordered to lie on the table, and bemade the special order of the day at the ..rxt meeting. The Hoard then adjournad.

The straggle betweaa the oppoaiar aoncury lateretta ia wMniaf evtrfdajr. lip u> a law dap* ????. it wM general ly believed that the Boston Bank# would unit# with tkoae of New York ia a reauaapuou nest month. The Suffolk Bank of that city, aoe of tbt leadiac iotliluttoua ia New England, has, under tUe iadaonee of Philadelphia, seceded from the movement, and now tries to prevent a resumption at the time designated. It it highly probable that other banks in that re gion will uaite ia opposing the policy of our bisks. The qnestioathen reaars, can our banks resume specie pay ments,and maintain their poetiwa ? How will the State ami Geaaral Government act? Wlmt poUcy will the United Bute* Bank pursue? The agitation on this subject increases every day. It it very evident, that, from the directly opposite opinions held by able financiers, the whole course ol monetary affairs is at pre sent a curious experiment in tinauce. W hat may be the result few can tell. The probability, however, i?, that Mr. Blddle will triumph in the end. His financial projects aie gigantic.? His credit is great in Europe?his credit great in America ? An addition of$l5 MO.OoO to his capital will give him a new element of power. Hut in addition to that fresh power?to the issues of his post notes?nf his bonds?or of his old uncan celled notes, he has made a fresh issue of paper currency, of which the following is a specimen :? 000003C900C0003aS003S00030?| 0 C >0 Vignette 90 C o ! a 30 of the Bank. 50 o o o o Tilt Bank of the United States promises o o to pay Mfty Dollars to the Bearer at o m /'ittsbnrgk.

Of this description of currency, we learn that large amounts are in circulation, payable at every distant point of the coun try?thus giving the bank the power and capaeity of a nation al institution, with only a state charter to bless itself withal. The confusion and exitement here, set on foot by the Board oi Trade, aids the policy of Mr. Biddlein thwarting our hanks. It is now confidently stated that the Pktnuf Bank will positively lose its charter. Accordingly, the slock of that institution has fallen today to 38?being nearly 10 per cent in ten days. Wo learn also that charges are preparing to be sent lo Albany against several ot the other banks and the Commercial is named as one of the obnoxious. If this spirit got s on, we will soon wind ap all our banks, and reduce them to mere deposi tories of money, without possessing any capacity to aid trade by issuing a currency or dealing in exchanges. There i* no alteration in the inland exchanges. Some of the southwestern journals deny that thu banks of those regions have funds in the Atlantic titles laying idle, with which they could rvdeim their hills. It is believed that these bank have used the funds accruing from the sales of cotton ex change to pay the debts they owed the government. | Specie continues to arrive nl every leading port of the Unmrt Front Jamaiaa, by the Orbil,we had $130,000?and duriag the last week, pr> Itably $300,000 have tlowed into the country ?
