MORNING HERA. LP.
IltlUAV, Jll.V J, ItOti To-morrow a full, graphic, picturesqes, poet ical and philosophical account will be given the grand reception of his Excellence the President of the United States, as it actually takes place to-day, according to the programme in another column. Erie Rail Road Scheme. ? The meeting of persons favorable to the construction of the New York and Erie Railroad, which was call ed yesterdav at the Merchants' Exchange, at two o'clock, ended in the assemblage of about fifty per sons, loafers and boy* included. Resolutions wore read by Mr. Davis, for the appointment nfa Commit tee of Delegates to go to Ithaca. The names of the Committee, consisting of more persons than werepre sent, were then read by R. C. Wetmore; and after a few remarks by Mr. Lawyer Blunt, the meeting ad journed. It now time for the public to hare a meeting 011 the subject of Internal Improvement, which will be a benefit to the public rather than a knot of speculators. Arrival or the Link ok Battle Ship North Carolina i rom the Pacific. ? Oa Saturday lust this noble ship, under the command of Commodore Henry E. Ballard, arrived, and anchored in the stream ofT the Battery, where she proudly lies, an hon??r to our navy. She has been absent thirty-one mouths, and in that time has traversed upwards ot 40, 000 miles. She has been a great protection to our commerce in the Pacific, particularly at Chili and Peru. The North Carolina is an immense ship, mounting 90 thirty-two and forty-four pounders, but can carry one hundrrd and ten. Hsr officers and crew number nta.ly nine hundred. A list of the former we published exclusively yesterday, lhey are a noble set. We paid her a visit yesterday morning, and were much astonished to see such extraordinary neatness in a ship just in from a cruise of nearly three years. It was not so with the Constitution when she arrived at Norfolk a short time since with a cargo of jack asses, much to the mortification of every officer but Commodore Elliott. Every thing on board ihs North Carolina is in the most perfect order, and she can now proceed to sea for another three years' crnise without any additional expense what ever. We went all over her, examined every nook and corner, and visited the orlop deck, about which the "Courier" said a great deal of nonsense when the Ohio was here a few mouths ago. i his deck is be tween wind and water, but we found it nearly as cool and comfortable as any in the ship. The officers' mess-rooms are spacious and well-lighted, and they have every convenience that they can possibly wisu for. We h.ive not the space to give a full descrip tion, and must therefore be brief. The upper deck ! presented the most splendid sight we ever beheld; 1 each gun was named after one of the states or terri- 1 tories; and the hammocks, as they were nicely stowed away, looked tremendously warlike. O11 ttie : wheel were the last words of the brave Lawrence, i "Don't give up the ship," and they will never oe forgot ton. Take her all in all, she is a noble vessel, and is justly considered the best line of battle ship in | the Unwed States Navy, and that is tantamount to her beiug the best iu the whole world. While we were quietly looking around, admiring the different arrangements, Com. Ed ward ?V. Moore, Commander in Chief of the Texian Navy, arrived on ! board. He remained a short tune, and then left for tke shore. At the same time two hundred of the j ?crew, whose term of service had expired, took their I departure from the ship. This was a stirring sight. j As the steamer which was to take them ashore, , shoved off, over live hundred sailors, all dressed in 1 blue, manned th ? yar Is and rigging, and gave their j old meesRiates three hearty cheers, which were re- \ turned. Thus two hundred jolly tars, with plenty ; of money, were let loose upon us in one day. What a time ttiey will have on the 4th ! The North Carolina is not to be dismantled, but will remain at anchor where she now lies as the re- | reiving ship There are to be three line of battle j ?hips stationed -one here, or<c at Boston, and the other at Norfolk ? as school-ships. From 500 to ItHJO hoys are to be placed on board of cach to be taught navigation and naval tactics. The North Carolina is to he the school ship here, and will, during the summer, remain at anchor where she now is; but in < the winter she will be statioaed in the Buttermilk Channel. We advise every one to take a look at her. The Battery will be thronged to see her, no doubt. She fires a salute today on the arrival of the President. Fire ?Between 9 and 10 o'clock last night, a fire broke out in Mott street, in a rew of slaughter houses, belonging to Smith, Harrington, and other butchers, which consumed six of the buildings with their contents. We could not ascertain if the pro. prietors were insured. Qaraage estimated at $^000. More Difficulty ijt Mii.se. ? The authority s of Maine have refused to accede tnthe proposition of I Lord Palmerston, relative te the settlement of the Boundary question We predicted as much at the time the proposition was received in this country. (0?The "Albany Argus" thinks that Governor Seward and his cabinet are trying to urge Mr. Clay upoa the opposition as the Presidential candidate. ? Let them think so, if thev please.

No lives lost; the afTair was the result of acci deat. How at Oodessri huh. ? A party of Canadians went over from Presott to Ogdenshurgh, to bring hack a deserter. They made him tipsy, but their plan deing discovered, they were severely beaten and tarred and fe.ilhertd, and sent across the river in a boat. The leader of the party blew his brains out when he got back to Prescott. The news of Mackenzie's conviction was received in Canada with astonishment and silence; one of the papers was very much mortified at being deprived of its hone of contention. Notiltt.?

"When, were lolki sucli fools briar* I Th?? will be one of the most eventful day* in the history of this city that ha* occurred since the visit of General Jackson. Such shouting ? such sweating ? sach swearing? such riding, and rioting ? and j racing, and running to and fro? and knocking down, and dragging out ? and broken heads, and broken tails, and broken breeches ? and eating and drinking ! and more firing, and fun, and folly, than we hav4 had in five yeais. The President of the twenty-six United States and three Territories, besides a vast number of Creeks, anil Hays, and Islands, enters the waters of the State I of New- York at high noon. Laus Deo ! God forgive ! us our sins, and send .Mr. Van Huren a safe passage into the city, and a respectable exit from it- The "note of preparation" fortius great triumphal entry, | has been sounding in this city for the last ten days; and at noon yesterday there was not a dozen pounds of soft soaj) left in the city, and Chatham street was i completely swept of all the old boots aud breeches ! that could be found in it. Small tooth combs were never in such great request, and there lias actually been a considerable demand for nail brushes, tooth brushes, and tooth picks. All the pipe clay, chalk, I fuller's earth, and blacking in the city was bought up I on Saturday before dark; and ?n account of the large I quantity of shirts that were washed last week, there ' was not a'gallon of rain water left yesterday ia any ; cistern in the city. In short, no pains have b?en j spared by the locofocos to render themselves as sweet and as clean as they possibly could under the : circumstances, considering the length of time that has elapsed since the last great cleansing. The whole of last week in this city was consul ed l by the various branches and grades, and castes of lo cofocos in talking and drinking gin, and cursing and i quarrelling, about the order of precedence in the ' procession, aBd finally they have decided that the ; locofocos on foot shall march before the loafers on horseback, this being considered purely democratic. Every loafer in the city tomorrow morning will be up by sunrise; some few will sleep on the Hattery to be in readiness; some will breakfast and .some will ; not; all will most likely become intoxicated, and not a few will get their heads broken, their eyes black ^ ened, and their noses put out of joint. It will bean I immense day, and the honors and dishonors paid to His Democratic Highness will exceed those paid to all the allied sovereigns of Europe on their visit to England. Wc go in for all this; we consider His Republican Majesty to be a greater personage than all the kings, and potentates, and powers of the earth ? and, therefore, fully entitled to l.ave as much noise ! and honor, ami shouting, and rioting, and ^'orj paid j to him as 300,000 souls can sei ve up for him. This being a settled point, we will proceed with I the programme of operations for the day. His Democratic Majesty will rise at five ? n a?h, ' dress, put oil a clean shirt, scrape his nails, and rinse ! his mouth out. He will thi n descend to the lireak fast parlor, and if he meets a child on the stairs, he will stop and talk to it, and ask after the lnat li of its auot. On meeting his host, he will put out his fere finger, half incline his neck, make a general obser vation about the weather, and wind up by saying ? ' "how's your wife's health this morning ? how did ; ? he pass the night ? her uucle is a niaa of good sense." , These little preliminaries beinj; passed through, he will discuss hia breakfast, spend a? much tuue as ' possible amongst the women, compliment the aunt, | and uncle, and grandmother of cveiy one, of tint in, talk to all the little uirls and boys, mix up ail - 'its of curious remarks, similar to eroas- readings, in his conversation, take first one gentleman by the arm and than another, walk a few yards and pass half a dozen complimentary remarks with each, and finally enter his plain, republican carriage, with his shirts and clean breeches in two portmanteau* strapped behind, and in this way reach Jersey city exactly at noon. In the mean time the following will be the pro gramme of the performances in this city. PROGRAM MK. The loco focos will rise before the sun for once, and run about in their old rau* till the ia?t moment, and then put on their netvlv mended slurts ami se cond hand boots and hreechea,and inustei in th<- Park aud on the Battery. ?II the loafer* that are to ride will riae about six and buy aotue corn to fe?3 their horses, and then blaak their boota. TUe military will rise about the same tione, and brash up tlxur muskets and caps aod brass buttons, and after a baaty breakfast, assemble at their stations. By seven o clock all the miscellaneous loafers will be taking their morning horn at the three cent grog shops, drinking to tke president's health. About ? o'cloc k all the young and old ladies of the city, the female locofocos in particular, will be teas tbrir paren'.s and uncles and brothers, to take them out aud see the president. Between 9 ami 10 o'clock all the rowdies and butt enders and indomitable*, will assemble and organize in squads and march towards Tammany Hall, after stopping at fire or six grot shops to get a drink. Ai 10 o'clock all the wsTl dressed members of the Convention, w ill assemble at Tammuay Ilall, and move in procession to the City Hall, where they will join the Committee of the Common Council, and the Committee of Officers of the Militia, and the whole will then repair on board the steamboat provided by the Convention of Citizens. Bach person included in this arrangement, will be furnished with a ticket, the presentation of which will procure admittance on board the steamboat, and to the saloon of Castle Car den. The General Committee and the invited guests will also assemble at Tammany Hall at 10 o'clock A. JW., aud, under the escort ot the committee appointed for that purpose, will proceed to Castle Garden. At 11 o'clock, Orator Edmonds, the President of the Convention, and the Committee of Reception, will receive the Mayor of the City, the General : Committees, and the invited guests at Castle Garden. Major General Saudford, Commanding the First | Division of Artillery, and .Major General Lloyd, ! commanding a Divisionof Infantry, will take post in I line on the flattery, at 12 o'clock at noon. Captain Chapman's corps of Veteran Artillery will then appear on duty and hrc a salute. A military corps will be detailed for duty in Castle Garden, as a guard of honor on the entrance of the President. 10,000 loafers, of all ages and sizes and descrip tions, will also assemble on the Battery, as an Independent Guard of Honor for his Republican Majesty. fiOOO Huttenders and I*domital>les will be specially detailed to d? tin shouting and hallooing. A respectable number of female locofocos will be detailed, and stationed at the several windows up llroadtvav, Chatham street, the Bowery, Broome street, and Chambers street, to wave white handker chiefs, shake their seft curls, and smile sweetly upon the bald bead of his Satanic ? we mean Serene De mocratic Majesty, who will hold his hat in his hand, and look unutterable things. A due proportion of young devils and imps of Sa tan, will be dispersed along the line to leer and chuc kle at his Serene Republican Highness, and to cheer him on. Exactly as the clock strikes twelve, the President and his suite, including the several committees in at tendance, w ill be received on board the steamboat at Jersey City. The boat will be appropriately deco witli ilaits and provided with a band of music, and plenty of cologne water. N. B No smoking, nor chewing, nor scaring allowed on board the boat ? Hut there will b? a great shaking of hands, and push ing and cr? .vding.and pulling up of shirt collars, and rushing up of hair and whiskers The boat, upon taring the Jersey shore, will make a circuit in tli? Bay, during which it is expected that salutes will be fired from Bedlow's Island, Governor's Island, the United Ssates ship North Carolina, and other ship* in harbor. N B, If the firing is nut loud enough, no promotions will take place for two years. Tilt Landing in New York. ? The steamboat will then approach the landing at Can tie Garden, and the President will land under* salute from the troops on duty upon the Battery, and a tremendous shouting from the greasy throats of the butt-enders and indo mitable*. There w ill immediately be a great rush to the Castle Garden ga !es, tlie offirers ill all be knocked dowa, the sovereign mob will ru h over the bridge, and in all probability break it down. 1'lie President wiil ttien he escorted, in company with hi* suite, and (lie committee in attendance, to the saloon of l'a?tle Garden. He will be received with appropriate honor., by the company on duty at the entrance of the ( 'astle, aud after this a great deal in<>i-c kh iiiiii'r, and squeezing and crowding, and tearing of old clothes and swearing. I'fion r? aching the saloon, lie will be addressed by t ne Chairman of the < onvention, K tmonds, on lie iialf of the citizens lie will 'hen be introduced to t!ie Mayori^f th? ciij u .the *:.\iri?i?r. i?f the Joint C<>:ii-uittee of the Uumninii Council, Messrs. Varian and l'allm.idge. tie will grasp their hands very cor dialli and ask after the h altn of both their wives and children, with >ut stopping to inquire if they have any. After all this humbug, and folly, and nonsense is got through with, there will be a tremendous effort made to make a lane for the President to reach the Birbary courser, " Arab," hired of Koulston for this special occasion, at ?.4 7.~> per day. Four butt-enders will hold the horse whilst the president mounts, a?d then, at a given signal, the shouting will be greater than when Mordecai was first m iunted by King Aha?uerus. The president will mount hi? horse in the arena of Castle Garden and ride once round it, to try hit hand and seat before he ventures out on the Battery. When in >ur.ted his two lords in waiting, Mr. Wa rian and Mr. Edmonds, will I ok on and aduaire his Excellency's riding, in a manner and form precisely as here represented: ? Major Wariao, orator Edmond*, and a whole group of loafer*, will then mount "pole borne*." and all will sally out on the Mattery to review the troops. The raview will he a funny affair lien, Kanlfoid and (ien. George P.

And the court adjourned. C'ossrt of Mesaiossa Jclt 1.? Fiftt Day of Term ? The Grand Jury was not empannelled in consequence of an insuffi cient attendance on the part of the jurors.

Indicted at last term, 14; convicted hut not sentenced, 4; committed for disorderly conduct, 9 ? grand total, t>2 Benjamin B Phillips was put to the bar, charged with bigamy, in marrying Catherine G. Vanderpool while his first wife, Catherine Ann Seguin, was still alive. The fact of the two marriages was pretty clearly made out, and the circumstance of the twe ladies being still in the land of the living, fully proved. F"r the defence, John A. Morrill made a speech, and called Jonah B. Bhillips, who swore that the pri soner applied to one of the Courts of the state of Pennsylvania for a divorce from Catherine Ann for alleged adultery, and that he received notice that the bill b*d gone by default, the fair Catherine not making any defence; This the prisoner conceived to be divorce enough, and accordingly preferred his ? uit to Miss Vanderpool, and found out, when too late, that in his hurry he had married the lady three day ? before the decree of the Court had actually de clared him free to make a second choice. The Court charged the Jury that ignorance of the law was no excuse for crime, or else Courts and Ju ries might have nothing else to do but listen to the excuses of individuals when brought to the bar of public justice His Honor, however, intimated that if the jury should consider the prisoner'* case to be deserving of favor, they might join the Court in re commending him to the mercy of the (Executive. The jury found the prisoner guilty, but recom mended him to mercy. Mr. Morrill asked to poll the jury, when the se cond one in the box said, "I think he's not guilty." The Court directed the Jury to retire, and after some consultation, they permitted the first verdict to be recorded. And the Court adjourned. Al fhambrri Before the Recorder. Judgment in the Abduction Ca$r.? Such was the intense anxiety to ll?f.en to hi* Honor'* adjudica tion on this interesting case, that the grand jury boxes, the barristers' chairs, reporters' table, and the law students' benches, were filled with pretty wo men and gent'el loafers Ions; Wore his llnnor took his seat on the bench. . Mr. Barry's counsel not be ing in Court, that gentleman anplied to bis Honor to poiti>one delivering his judgment until their business would enable them to attend, His Honor then read a long opinion on the case, concluding with the following judgment : His Honor declined acceding to that proposition ? and also said that he thought it was not necessary to hare the child present in Cnurt.

Mr. Graham mwved an amendment, deprecating the programme for receiving the President of the United States, as published by the Tammany Com mittee. After a long and animated debate, the amendment was negatived. The question then came up on Mr. Timpson's mo tion ? another debate ensued, which enued in the adoption of the motion. Mr. Graham then moved to postpone the conside ration of the Fire Act for a week, to gire time for the department to deliver their opinion thereon. Lost by an equal vote. The Fire Law was then taken up, and the 3d sec tion read. Mr. Graham objected to it, and moved to lay that section on the table and be printed. Lost by a ma jority of one. After several bootless attempts to gain time, Mr. Graham addressed the Chair and said, that he should not vote again on this project for reforming the Fire Laws. anle>s some deference was paid to the opin ions of the body who were to suffer or to benefit by the operation. The honorable gentleman reiterated his belief in the necessity of waiting for the report of the department thereon. The question was then taken on the 3d section of the law, when all the whig members refused to vote, and the cectioa was carried with only one dissent ient voice ? that of Mr. Connor.
