JAMES HARPER. Let all, then, unite in thanking Heaven for tbe innumerable blessings we enjoy?for the return of the seasons?for the good crops?for the national prosperity?for increasing wealth?for every thing else. Whether we are to return thanks lor the prospect oi a war with Mexico, and the difficulties in South Carolina, we will see hereafter. Oar Foreign Relations. The intelligence of the present critical position of our relations with Mexico, as disclosed by the correspondence of the two governments, has fallen upon the community with an apparent calm and insensibility, that by no means represent the exact condition of the public mind. The journalsof both part.es have vety generally published the whole ol the correspondence, commencing with that which was first published in the Herald; but they seem to avoid the subject?to be alarmed at the prospect, aud to shrink from the very discussion of the portending position which Ihe two countries at present occupy, with respect to each other, at this moment. The mysterious calmness of the public mind, we are persuaded, only resembles the pauae in ihe hurricane?a preface io a more furious and widespread onset of the ele.nenUry war than we have yet witnessed. Tie same significant calmness which we find in ?he puilic mind, and in the newspaper ptese, marks also tne course of affairs at Washington. St itesmen and politicians?merchants and editors? all classes, seem to be awaiting with breathless anxiety the nert arrival from Mexico in order to ascertain in what position the country may be pi iced during the next few months or the next quarter of a cen urjr. We have, indeed, reached a cria'g in our foreign rel.tions, not only with the republics ot this continent,but with the eld govern nieiits I.f Europe; for this question of annexation will yet bring ua iuto more immediate and com miug ing coi fl tl with ihe policy of the old monar ch cu government* ?f Europe, than nny other event * hicn lias taken place in our pan1 history. 3 . t r ?* pn lie opinion has been developed on t V character of the rtCe0I a.pl,.malic correspond ??tice, there i p .re to be a diepo?uion in the or gt'?* an I leaders of both the great parfieato find Cius- Ol complaint in the diplomacy of Mi. Cal houn and the American Minister at Mexico, in. cludi-g-Mr Tyler himself. A small portion of ihe press and the people attached 'o the fortunes of the present administration, only indicate an approval of these recent diplomatic doings, which are more im portant than any we recollect to have seen or htard of for many yean past. Objection. ar? made to Mr. Calhoun's conduct?to his letters?to hia ar guments-to hia principles? and to the whole char acter of his diplomacy. The same objections are urged with greater violence and greater disregard u'T TiU" Mr" Sr,annon,? correspondence with the Mexican minister; and all these indica tions seem to show that a most violent and bitter opposition is preparing in the commercial cities of the Atlantic ooast, stimulated partly by commer cial reasons, to the fu ure prosecution of the diplo matic policy which has been now partially dis closed. We are in tbe commencement of a more violent internal contest than any we have yet seen in this land, involving our foreign relations, and far outstripping in its intensity and bitterness any thing that has ever been brought about by a dis cussion of any mere politico-economical question Bach as the tariff, bank, as any thing else. One thing strikes us as being certain to grow out of this extraordinary position ol things, and the peculiar position of the diplomacy of the pre Ka! ,^Crftary of S,ate- T"e British government and the riritish presi will not omit seizing the pre aent opportunity to declare a moral war-a bitter moral w8r against the conduct of this countrj and the policy of its government, on account of the reasons and arguments set forth by Mr. Calhoun in vindication of the annexation of Texas. If this war of opinion were the only result likely to be produced, it were of comparatively little moment ? bu there is every probability that this question will ev ntuate in something more important than a mere moral war-a d.scusiion of abstract principles At all events, the United States government is now placed in such a position, as regards the annexation question, ar,d our relations with Mexice, and with European nations generally that will demand the support and countenance of whole American people. Mr. Calhoun's diplo matic policy, and also that of Mr. Shannon might I have been more courteous, or, rather, more hypo critical, than they have been, but these gentlemen have discarded all the usual plausibilities of di plomacy and have spoken their minda manfully and fearlessly on the whole questions at issue. It remains for the people of this country, after de-1 liberately weighing the matter and the position in which these diplomatists have placed our relations to decide whether they will, in this great business,'! act on the principle on which their insti tutions and prosperity are founded, that is whether they will "go a-head." or whether they will recede and take tbe contempt and disgrace of the whole civilized world This subject is just opening, and we are only in the com mei.cem-uiof an im.Kirtant crisis in our history. It ia well, iheii, io be cautious, and carefully to consider every progressive step. Thk Excitkmknt in Soaru Cabouna.

Highly Important prom Washingtone refer our readers to the intelligence trom Washing 1 ton under onr postscript head. It would nppear that ihe Chinese treaty, negotiated by Mr. Crush ing, is already before the Senate and must be sown settled oue way or the wiher As eome portions ol ihe treaty have been promulgated, we ahall eu deuvor to procure a copy as soon as possible, by Mime means or other, and publish it to the world. This is, indeed, oue of the most important com mercial movements ever attempted in this couutry, and we cannot imagiue how any opposition can be > ff-red to it :n any quarter The intelligence communicated in our corres pondence, relative to the sentiments of Great Britain with regard to the Texas question, is also very important. It is the belief of our Govern ment that, under all the circumstances, no diffi culty with England is likely to grow out ot this question. It is more likely that the Oregon allair will produce difficulty. Neither is it supposed that Mexico will declare war, 01 go to war, or do any thing but blus er and make noise. Santa Anna, it is thought, has quite enough work m his hands at this time,and sufficient internal opposition to his im perial purposes?for such they arc?to occupy him. At a'l events, things are in a very unsettled state as regards our foreign relations. Attack on Recorder Tallmadge.?A most fu rious attack on the Recorder ol the city appears in the Morning A'ewt of yesterday.^ The ostensible pretext for this assault on the character aud fidelity tf Mr. Tallmadge, is the alleged tact, that he dis charged a thief, oue George Fisher, on" straw bail," and a terrible outburst of rather grandilo quent indignation is poured forth on the occasion. The most amusing part of the matter is, that in all probability, the article was written by some indi vidual who is attached to the A'em in an humble capacity, against whom a criminal indictment has recently been lound. Recor der Tallmadge has his weaknesses, like every other man?he is not infallible any more than others?and though we know the system of bail ing which prevails in all our inlerior Courts to be very detective, and, iudeed, iniquitous, yet we must say that the Recorder has been an excellent Judge?a lair, honorable, and high-minded man in office. It has a great many enemies and rivals, and many abuse him who would no doubt like very well to have his place. Very likely there may be some such motives mixed up with this attack, at least on the part of those who permitted its inser tion. City Reform ?A very interesting movement for city reform Las made its appearance in the Ninth, Eighth and Seventeenth Wards. This isaltogether different from, and is much more promising than any of the political movements we have seen in this city for a long time past. It has a degree of liberality and purity ol character, which at once commend it to the regard of all honest aud intelli gent minds. It is very different from that which was commenced about a year Bgo, but was mixed up with a violent partizan feeling, attacks on a par ticular religion, and intolerant abuse of certain classes of the community, so that it did not and could not come to any good. If we are ever to have a good government in this city, we must go to work purely and honestly, re gardless of anything but reform, and without al lowing the movement to be entangled by any sec tarian or partizan feelings or purposes. ThuB far the democrats have been at the head of this new movement. But we think that if the whigs would srt about re organizing themselves solely and singly for city reform and a purification of the ballot boxes, they would have the best chance of suc ceeding. Neit spring, there will probably be three paruea in the fi.-k?democrats, whige, and "na- j lives," or f ilae r? formers. Now is the time for the . citiZ'ns ot New York, who realty desire good, pure and efficient municipal government, to unite ; for the attainment ot that great object. We will ; support any party that goes honestly lorciiy reform, be they whig, democratic, "native," "foreigner," or any thing else. But it is clear that we most have some change. The Religious Discussion ?Theological con troversy is now all the rage in this city. Bishop Hughes, Dr. Pise, Dr. Potts, and others?polem.cal giants?are all in the field. This may be regarded as the opening of the " seventh seal" spoken of by the Apostle John, in the revelation given to him on the Isle of Patmos, and is no doubt the imroduction of the Millennium. By means of these discussion", sectarian differences will be melted down, and all the churches will unite in fraternal and holy em braces ot love and universal charily. The discussion is only beginning Pise and Potts are just firing the first volleys, from a distance and a little roundabout, like the discharges from the Irishman's gun, that was made for shooting round corners. Bat, by and by, we will be in the full heat of the battle. We will give full and faithful reports of the whole conflict, which is the precursor of that brilliant period in eternity which has been called the Millennium. New Species or Libel ?One of our corres pondents staled some time since that Mr. Barrett, the Collector of New Orleans, had voted the Clay i ticket. Mr. Tyler's organ in that city declares this j to be an atrocious "libel." This is certainly a funny ( idea, worthy of a Tyler organ The cream of the | joke is that Mr. Barrett himself comes out and de- , clares that he voted for Mr Polk, and not for Mr. j Clay. Well, really, after all, we cannot see how i voting for Mr. Clay, even in his fall, can be made j out to be such a terrible delinquency that to accuse a man of doing bo is an atrocious "libel." Literary Intelligence.?We understand that a grand complimentary festival, of the nature of a "benefit," is about to be got up by a certain por tion of the literati of this city, for General George P. Morris, th? great song writer of the United States, and, we may say, ol the. world, during the present century. It is sometime pince we have had any complimentary benefits, tor in consequence of their being too frequently brought forward they are apt to run into the "sear and yellow leaf." But after a fast for a long time we are now promised this most superb occasion, on which, probably, all the artists in this country will meet and make it the most splendid thing of the kind that ever took place at the Paik Theatre, the place selected as the scene of the festival. Mr. Morris has probably writteu more songs than . any other writer in this country, and whatever . their quality may be, he is placed by his friends in the position of the Burns of America, or the Beran ger of America ; and as all song-writers are not al ways the most fortunate people in the world, it is ; occasionally necessary to help them through this ' sublunary scene, and forward them in the soltest conveyance to the highest niche of immortali y and comfort. In a lew dnys we will be prepared with all the arrangements for this great occasion, and will an nounce them to the public. In the meantime, it would not be amiss to suggest that a number of other complimentary bent fits of the same kind, 1 might very properly be got up in these timet?that is to say if they are profitable. They would^ not be sneezed at by a number of artists, writers, poets and unthors of the present day. We do not see what harm there would be in a complimentary benefit to Mr. Willis himself?he certainly de serves it as much as any one. Even if they were to get up a coinp'tmentary benefit for the assistants of the " Evening Mirrorwe do not think it would be refused Ole Bull?This distinguished artist has taken Falr..o'? Opera House for a concert o*. Wednesday next He will on this occa^on play some ot his most recent compositions. During his late visit to Boston he was pre-eminently succcs?lnl Genius like his never loses, but is elways increasing the ( number* of its admirers "Bolting" Dinner and the OM*a?The uu civilized haute with which Americans bolt their meals has passed into a proverb, after affording abundant mirth to European travellers and critics. It is, in truth, a ludicrous sight to see a parcel ot hungry Americans at the dinner table. Heaven help their innocent stomachs for any knowledge ol the sublimit science of cookery ! "All is fish that comes into their net"?every thing is " first rate' that can be easily swallowed and quickly disposed of. The agonizing labors of the most eminent gastronome in Paris would be ingloiiously lost upon them. The calm and exquisite delights of dignified dining they know not of; and that delicious dilUtantiim in the harmony of flavors, which creates a corresponding harmony and be nignity of feeling, aud makes epicurism a virtue, is to them a lobt grace, an inaccessible endowment. It has struck us that the same remark is particu larly true in regard to our national enjoyment of music. We hurry to the opera as if life depended on our speed; we bustle about to obtuin the most eligible seats for the display of our gaudy finery; we drum an acoompaniment of restless annoyance to ourselves and every body else during the entire performance; and then rush hom? at the same railroad Fpeed with which we went, thoroughly bored and disgusted. Another peculiarity ot American opera going is, that we can never bear to hear the same opera more than once, however grand or magnificent it may be, or however intricate aud diversified the melodies?impossible to be even separated or in dividualized t>y the nicest ear, at a single hearing But our"codfi<h aristocracy,"demand asuccessiou of "novelties " So true it in that the soul which un derstands nothing is satisfied with nothing! To the appreciative spirit, music is a divine voice that penetrates to the inmost sense, with a thrill of most extatic pleasure, and a great opera is a kind of ex alted romance, in whose bewitching times the soul delights to linger and lose itself?a world of ever-shifting and ever-beautiful pictures which the divine voice of harmony endows with life, aud thought, and passion. We remember to have listened to this very opera of Cenerentola?perhaps the very flower of Ros sini's lavish genius?thirty nights in succession : and we can conscientiously assert thatthe wierd ?nd mystic meanings of its witching melody, as they fell from the impassioned lips ofGrisi, spoke to us more eloquently on the last night than r.n the first; and as, for the thirtieth time, the queen of song rose from the mortal to the pythoness, and bunt into the heart-thrilling strains of Non piu meita ! we felt as if we could have sat still and listened forever! The tragmentary and heterogeneous ollapodrida of " Cinderella" is quite familiar to us in this coun try ; but the Cenerentola has never, before the pre sent season, been performed here, except by Mali bran, who plaved it eleven times, about fifteen years ago, and Fanti, (of the Montressor troupe,) who sang the part on several occasions. The opera of Cenerentola, like the Barber ot Se ville, and Rossini's other best works, is peculiar for the great range of characters introduced and the completeness with which each is wrought up. The principal personage, however, both in regard to the musical part und the dramatic interest, is La Ctnertntola herself. The composer seems to have here fairly revelled in the gorgeous and many colored inspirations of his glorious gemue. On the whole there is no opera extant that leaves so many brilliant remembrances in the heart as Cenerento la. The performances of this beautiful piece by the present company is very respectable, and de serves some notice in detail. Immediately after the overture, which, by the way, was never better played in this country, a young gentleman with sundy moustache and curly lockf, nepped before the curtain, and introduced a briel recitativo, to the effect that Miss Mose, who was to play Clorinda, had refused to appear, " be cause her name was not announced in the bills i?. as big type as that of Signora Pico!" (Large vico type, we suppose ) He added:?But Mrs. Phillips had been induced te sustain the character, aud threw herself on the indu genceof the house- (*nd very well Bhe suug too, much better than the indig nant Miss Moss, whose head has probably been turned by a silly critic in the Morning JS'tws) This announcement being got along witii verv good humoredly, the curtain went up, and Madame P.co sang with a steady, clear, and deep voice,accompanied with much archness of action and expre^ion, the celrbrated " una v<Ata c'tra u? He " K was well doue, and exhibited a voice ? f-fiue quality, splendid accuracy, und per fectly uudei control. As the opera proceeded our opinion was strrii&tht ned 111 these particulars, and we slso l<.und that her emb llixhments were intro duced in excellent taste, and executed smoothly and without tflort. Her "// mio cor" was well (;iven and loudly applauded ; as were also the duett ollowing, with Autognint, (una groxin.) and the story of her situation in her lather's t. mily. The exquisite g?m, ",1**' ora, un ora tola;" was sung with thrilling effect. .... Tontasi, spite of every thing, carried the piece and the hear s of the audience with him. He has the most magnificent voice ever heard in this country, with the exception of Fornasari and Sal vatori, and his presence is commanding. His act ing i? somewhat stiff and ungainly, but the golden depths of that rich voice more than repay for all. Sanquirico even improves upon acqutintance He is a ripe scholar in music, and has at perfect commaud all the graces ot his profession. His performance ot the abeurd and ludicrous old Don Magutfico is quite inimitable. The audience was very large and fashionable, although the evening set in with a bitter snow storm, which had drifted by ten o'clock to the depth of several inches. We hope this charming opera will be frequently repeated. Sailor's Homk.?We have received a communi cation fiom several sailors, uttering complaints against this institution and its management. These sailors, who appear to have gone through a good deal of hard service, ought to be treated with kind ness and consideration. We have nothing to say against the " Sailor's Home ;'* we have always looked upon it as one of the most useful institu tions in the country. But if it should be badly managed, and the poor sailor made to suffer, it will very Boon become a nuisance. Sailors suffer suffi ciently at sea, and they do not, therefore, merit to be skinned alive when on shore. The " Sailor's Home was established for their protection, and we hope that it will continue to aflord them all that ij necessary. The Great Footrace on Monday Next.?The entries for the four mile race to come off over the Beacou course, Hoboken, on Monday next, closes this evening at Mr. Smith's, Park Row. Gilder sieve and Greenhalgh, the two principal men, who are entered for the twelve mile race, are in active training, and are said to be in finer condition and doing better than ever they did; with the excep tion of Greenhalgh this last day or two, who is said to have slightly strained his ancle while train ing on Tuesday, but it is generally considered it will not at all affect him by Monday. Gildersleve, it is stated, has reduced his weight since his last race some two or three pounds. Some bets have been made at evens thatthe twelve miles are per formed in seventy minutes; two to one is taken that it is done in sixty-seven minutes. Greenhalgh, ir anything, is the favorite against the field; Jack son is the> favorite in the four mile race; two to one it is not done in twenty-two minutes has been bet to some little extent, during the past three or four days. Fashionable Movements ?Korponay, who has n?w ubo..t three hundred pupils in this city, gives a grand invitation ball at the Minerva Rooms on Friday evening. It will be a superb affair. It is strictly an "invitation Ball," and will be quite rerkrnhe It has created a great sensation amongst the Ihle His ball at the Alhamra on the 27th inst. for the benefit of the Deaf and Dumb Asylum, under the direction of a committee of gentlemen, is the gteat topic (f conversation in the fashionable circles F:a* ? The three story brick building, No. 174 Front street, occupied by Henry Morgan & Co. as i a grocery store, was consumed by fire yester day. It was first observed at four o'clock, and by tt prompt attendance of the fire companies prevent ed from spreading on either side. The stock, which waB not large, was entirely destroyed?but * lull insurance was effected upon it. Some slight damage whs sustained by the buildingj adjoining, yet less than might he expected from tne grea. quantity of wattr used on the occasion. Snow Storm.?One of tha most legitimate ?t snow storms began last evening We (hen had every appearance ot good ^leiglum; for to day. TliiS wintfr t>pens well. Board of Education. This Board met last evening:, Gerard Clark, Erq., President, in the chair. The Bible ?The Committee on Annual Appor tionment made a long report in relation to the opinions entertained by the County Superintend ent on the subject of the introduction of the Bible ia the public schools. The report is a voluminou> document, detailing the views of the committee in relation to the opinions of the County Superintend ent on the subject of the introduction of the Bible in the common schools. The report, after going at length into the question of the views of the Legislature in passing the act of the last session ot the Legislature in May, on this subject, goes on to say, that the views of the County Superintendent on the subject ot thia exclusion of the Bible in the Common Schools was erroneous, and totally at variance with the view* of the Legislature. The report goe* on to aay that in many of the public achoola abusu* existed which demanded a ?peeuy reform. The children in many of the wards wlirre the children were crowded together in amall rooms, and huddled up together with the liee air of heaven alto gether txcluded. The repert compare* the *ystem of crowding up the public schools In some of the warda to the undent mode ot "crowding up the remain*of the dead in the catacomb* of Egypt.'1 The report concluded with a resolution to the eflVct that the Board had no power to iuterlere with the aci of the Legislature, and recom mending at the some time the reiding of the Holy Scrip tu'ef in the public sell >ol?, without reference to any par ticular version of the Holy Scripturea The following resolutions oceompunied the report Resolved, That the Board ot Education has no po ver under the present law to det rmine what book* ahail be uiied in the Puhjic or Ward School* ol this city and coun ty, that power being left entirely in the haad* ot the School Officers aid the Trustee* or Manager* ol the School* and Societiea, who are ant' orized by law to share in the apportionment of the ichool money. lteiolved.

Resolved, That the Board of i Education do hereby re commend to the Truatee* and Manager* of all the schools under their supervision, the reading of a chapter from the Bible, without note or comment, at the commencement of each morning and afternoon session. Thi* resolution not being intended a* a recommendation of any particu lar version of the Holy Scripture* A communication from the Board of Trustee* of the 4th ward, was received, directly charging " falsehood" on the County Superintendent, in relation to that part of n former report of hi*, having reference to the 4th ward sohools. Alio from the Trustees of the sixth ward, of a similar character; and also from the Trustees of some of the other ishools A minority report from the committee above referred, which suitainedth* views of the County Superintendent, was also read. The Chairman read a communicati n from the County Superintendent, asking pe: mission to be heard, before the Board, in explanation. Mr. Rich opposed the application, a* it would open a door that would lead to much annoyance to thi* Board, a* every one who chooie to apply, should then be heard.? He had no objection to their receiving a communication Irom the County Superintendent. Mr Ely was opposed to the views of the opposite gen tleman He moved to lay the reports on the tuble. Mr Skidmork was opt>o?ed to laying the reports on the table, a* it would be unjuit to doao. i, Dr. 8wek.iv oailed the gentleman to order. Mr. Uai.k was of opinion that the Superintendent ought to be heard. He had been heard before, at various times, during the Inst year. An amendment was propoied to print both report*. Mr. Galk opposed the printing of that part of the report which charged the luperintendent with " falsehood." A communication was received from tl.e County 8u Iierintendent explanatory of hi* vinw* and action in re* ation tn the introduction of the Holy 8eripturea in the Ward School*. The communication rcterate* the opi nion* of the County Superintendent on the subject of the already much agitated question of the introduction of the Catholic and Protestant version of the B.ble in the Public Schools, and intimated hi* intention of bringing the mat ter before the Supreme Court. The que*tion on the amendment on printing was taken and lost. The question on laying on the table was then taken up. Alderman liAtE wished to make some remarks in re lation to the report of the 4th ward commissioners. The ('haismapi ruled it out of order. Mr. Weir opposed the reading by the Clerk. The p iper was then read, and the question wss carried Sixth Ward School?A remonstrance was received from the School Officers of the Sixth Ward, in relation to the order of the Board to have the lot ot ground sold, which had been intended lor the site of the school bouse in that locality Mr. WHtiLr.it moved that it be laid no the table. Thi* remonstrance wa* ordered on file. The Board adjourned. Robbery at Messrs. Rockwell's Jewelry Store, Broadway ?Our readers doubtless recol lect the extensive robbery that took place at the above store some time since, in which it was thought that the notorious English thief, William Hobby, was concerned, and who was apprehended in consequence, but like many others oi the same class, managed to walk out of the Tombs before he took his trial. He was, however, recaptured a tew days since in Brooklyn, and has at length con teased his guilt, (of which there was not a shadow of doubt,) and consented to point out the place where his share of the stolen property was con cealed. Accordingly, on Tuesday, he was placed in a carriage with two of the deputy keepers, and taken to his house in Adams street, Brooklyn, where he procured the key of the house in which he was arrested, and taking the officers into the yard, he pointed out to them the spot, beneath a pile of lumber, where the booty was concealed.? A few minutes' digging brought to light forty-one gold watches, twenty-six silver watches, six silver watch cases and four valuable movements, worth in all about six thousand dollars?which have been restored to the rightful owners, and is said to be more than half of all that was stolen, and if any lenity can be Bhown to a rogue so deep and daring, it ia expected that his voluntary surrender of prop erty which might otherwise have been loBt forever, will induce the court to extend it to him; but it is hoped if such be the case, the clemency will be of a nature to prevent his ever committing any fur ther depredations, in this country at least. Sale of Books.?The sale of the library of the late Hon. Isaac R Jackson, was continued at the Long Room, No. 169 Broadway, last evening at half past 6 o'clock, by Gurley & llill. The cata logue contains upwards ol 1200 lots of works in va rious languages, on religion, law, fine arts, belles lettres, poetry, biography, history, science, and every department of literature. As might be ex pected, there is a vast variety amongBt this exten sive collection, and a fair proportion of scarce aud esteemed wotks. In most instances these bring, if not liberal, pretty fair prices. The following may be taken aa an example :?The worka of Lord Bo lingbroke, London, 1754; 7 vols. 4to. #2.75 per vol. The wotks of Sheffield, Duke of Buckingham, London, 1723; 2 vols. 4to. $1 per vol. The works of K n< Charles I., London, 1735; 1 vol folio, $2 75. The works of James I., in Latin, Frank foit, 1689; 1vol. lolio, 02 The works of Plato, translated by Sydenham & Taylor, London, 1804; 5 vols. 4to. $5 HO per vol.
