fii ? i)0, ui. r excitement ou the Oregon question,
unit til.' r-hti. j il the United States with Oreat
Britain -This tub}* ct is the great engrossing topic
in a I <. ut let, and the new?pajK*n? ol all j'ariies ar<
i.i '.ma it .i;> all over the couutry The JVashington
iilubt, which in to l?e regarded a J the organ of the
; ivernment, and the minor inoiith-iueces through
out all the ldMihcations of the administration
I iriy, are B|\ akuig out in the ino3t vehement and
irhesitatiug manner. One tone appears to cliarac
t' tix- the democratic press, and all declare at once
ti:" ncci^j.ty, mi theirfirm determination, of sup
i irting the President in the position which he ha6
as;u ::ed. All insist thut Oregon is to be taken pos
prsHion of at every hazard.
The only expression of dissent from the over
whelming popular feeling on this subject, comes
troni the organs of the commercial and stock-job
hing interests in (he large cities,such as the Courier
and E*</uirtr, the J urnal of Commerce, and Balti
mux American.'. And nothing, perhaps, could more
strikingly demonstrate the mere sectional charac
ter, and contracted mental capacity of these agents
ot diquet, than their articles on the present relations
of ihe two countries, and the probable course ol
ev?. ut? which awaits development in;the brighten
ing future. They affect to deny that there is any
thing at all threatening in the present aspect of na
tional aflaiis?fissure stoutly insist on it, that
cotton, tobacco, and slocks, must forever control
the desiiny of tho republic? that a war is irnpo. Bi
ble, aad denounce, with an air of virtuous indigua
i o i, ail who venture to express the opinion, that to
a people experinccd in the use ot democratic
liberty, and rapidly attaining the most command
i!position among the nations ot the earth, may
possibly be committed the work of engaging in the
last decisive conflict with the monarchical and des
potic dynasties of the ancient world. The Courier
Enquirer, however, exhibits a strange mixture of
conflicting opinion... It takes all sides of the ques
tion It denounces the war feeling, and yet its
voice" also, is for war. It abuses Mr. Polk for as
suming our unquestionable right to Oregon, and
yet calls on the administration to maintain every
inch ol its ground. The Courier, it is evident, does
not know its own mind on the matter, and its rea
ders are, of course, in a state ot equal perplexity. It
is consolatory, however, to rcflsct that this state of
dubiety is not likely to lead, iu the meantime, to aity
very serious disaster.
Whilst, therefore, the mere organs of commer
cial and stock-jobbing cliques arc ridiculing the idea
ot any interruption of the peaceful relations between
the two countries, we will take the liberty of
rchoing the popular cry. What is to be done T?
What should the government of this country do i
ft is very evident that Great Britain is in earnest
in her announcement of uncompromising hostility
lo our claims to the Oregon territory. She assures
us that she is prepared to maintain her pretensions
at every hazard. She is certainly at this moment
in a very excellent condition for enforcing her
claims and carrying her threats into execution.?
She has settled her difficulties in the East. She
has satisfactorily arranged the Chinese affair. She
hits at present no particular business in the way ol
war on hand. Her financial condition is prosper
ous in the highest degree. She was never, in fact,
more powerful, more unembarrassed, more able
to effect her purposes than now. It is surely, then,
incumbent on our government to make some pre
paration for meeting this formidable enemy. The
whole country should be put into a state of defence
at once. Th? President should immediately sum
mon an extra session of Congress. The navy and
army should be increased. The militia should be
re-organized, and put in such a condition as (o pre
nent a m^re reliable means of support than an armed
mob. The defences of the country should be
made warihy of the name. All the recent im
provements in naval warfare should be introduced.
A steam navy should be erected at once, which
could be used in connection with commerce, and
be always in readiness (or actual service. Com
rnunicaiinn neiween tuc great cities along the coast
and in the interior, should be established by means I
of the magnetic telegraph. This is the wuy to ne
gotiate. We do not wish a war. We deprecate
war. It would be a great calamity. But we do
not wish to see the country humiliated We de
sire to see the country in a proper posture of de
fence, fully prepared with the means of negotiating
with honor and success.
It is most necessary that I his country be fully
impressed with the importance of the subject-mat
ter of the present controversy with'Eogland. It is
a quarrel for the right of ttay through the great
territory of the Oregon to Chipa and the East.
Kngiand wishes to seize upon that, and so main
tain her chain of communication around the globe.
It is uot a contest for the possession of a barren
territory. It is the same movement on the part of
Kngiand,'but on a far larger scale, which sought
to secure her claims in the North Eastern Boundary
question. She desired to possess a certain portion
of the North East territory bordering on Lower
Canada and New Brunswick, in order to obtain
the right of way between the two colonies. Now
she seeks to obtain the right of way between her
Canadian possesions and China, securing the means
ot obtaining swift intelligence from the Eaat, in
connection with the North-Weatern trade. This is
the magnificent prize for which England now con.
There is only one course left to the administra
tion. They must maintain their position. They
can do that oaly with arms in their hands. We,
therefore, call on President Polk to convene with
out delay an extra session of Congress,for the pur
pose of perfecting the means of national defence,
and enabling the government of this republic to
maintain itself with dignity, honor, and success.
Increase of Travej. to Europe?In no one
year has the prospects of travelling to Europe
opened so favorably an in the present. The steamer
Great Western, packets Liverpool, Siddons, Argo,
Silvie de (rrasse, See., have sailed within the laBt
four weeks crowded to the utmost with cabin pas
sengers. All the packets to sail in May, the splen
did Yorkshire, the magnificent Queen of the West,
the fiae Stephen Whitney, and popular Sheridan,
are rapidly filling np. The Stephen Whitney, we
believe, is full; the Sheridan nearly bo; and the
swift Yorkshire, to sail on the 16ih, and the stately
Queen, to leave on the 21st proximo, have more
tliau half their berths engaged. Americans will,
this year, spread over Europe m great numbers.
Movements of the New Corporation.?The
democratic members of the new Corporation had
another informal meeting the other evening, and a
number of candidates for office were selected, to
be presented to the board af.er their taking their
jcau. The following were the names mentioned
on the occasion : ?
Kdward Fitzgerald, Ballast Master.
Kdward Flannugan, J.tto,
W?i N. Uurkhtiad, Clerk to Superintendent of Streets.

The Swallow Accident.?The aelect commit
to- on the Swallow disaster, made a report in the
Sei.ate, on Saturday, concluding by introducing a
nil for the better security of persons earned on
"camboats navigating the Hudson Iliver, which
read t.vice ,md referred. The report exone

HlULY Important Developments Relative to
hie Late Cii inv.sk Tkeatv ?We give in this day'*
paper some very interesting developments relative
?o the n< gociation of the late treaty with China.
The correspondence is sufficiently explicit, and
presents ihe| prominent actors in that business in
the true liglit. It is quite evident that to Commo
dore Kearney belongs the credit and honor ol
taking the preliminary steps, and, in lact, conduct
ing to a successful issup, the Chinese negotiations
Great injustice was, indeed, done to the gallant
Commodore, by the ignorance, prejudice and ob
tuaeuess of the lite President and Secretary of the
Navy, and by whom his merits and labors were
kept hidden 111 the files of the Navy Department.?
But we have been enabled to bring them forth,and
and to show that not to a politician or statesman
ol the day, but to a gallant officer of the American
navy, this country is really indebted for the success
(f the Chinese negotiations. We do not mean to
detract at all from the merit cf Mr. Webster or
Mr. Cushing in the part they have respectively
taken in this business. Mr. Cushing has shown
himself to be a man of great tact and discernment,
and a good deal of talent. He conducted his share
of the negotiation with a great deal of skill and
diplomacy, but both he and Mr. Webster have
done great injustice to Commodore Kearney, in
this matter, by attempting to claim all the honor
of completing the treaty with China.?
It will be seen from the correspondence,
which we publish to-day, that all the
principal points of that treaty and the dispo
tion of mind neoessary to bring the Chinese to
make it, were i fleeted by the exertions of Com
modore Kearney?by his good sense and directness
of purpose, and the vessvlawhich he commanded,
it is indeed quite unworthy cf the fame and repu
tation of Mr. Webster and Mr. Caleb Cushing
t'-.at they should attempt to monopolise the great
merit which rightfully belongs to Commodore
We have also obtained a facsimile of one of the
documents in the Chinese characters, which was
received by the Commodore in the course of his
negotiations, and which we will have had engraved
for the Wetk'y Herald of next Saturday, to accom
pany this important correspondence.
The Nkw Corporation?Local Improvements.
?The new Corporation are now on the eve of as
suming the heavy responsibi'ity that devolves upon
the City Government. With the solemn warning
before their eyes, in the fate of the so called " na
tive" party, it is to be hoped that as soon as they
shall have fully completed the machinery of the
government and distributed the spoils of office,
they will at once set their hands to work and give
the people of this large metropolis of the Union,
some practical evidence of their sincerity to reform
some few of the many eryirg abuses that have 60
long existed in this city.
The partisanship and discreditable system of
ofTice-beggiug, that have hitherto operated so as to
prevent the practical carrying out of those mea
sures of reform they have (all the parties,) pro
fessed to introduce, will no longer be tolerated by
the great bulk of our community. The public
mind has latterly become more enlightened on the
subject of the governmental discipline practised
by our city fathers in the Corporatien. The system
of jobbing, with a view te bestow patronage on
some partisan favorite, has been so abused, that the
people have turned from it with disgust.
The party now in power, in order to maintain
the strong foothold they have taken, must make a
bold, a vigorous effort, to improve the public
thoroughf ares of the city. No narrow, stingy mea
sure of reform will go down with the people. We
could instance so many quarters of the city
that require improvement, so as to be able
to swell the catalogue to a large amount. Look
to Broadway The disgraceful condition of this
vast thoroughfare has been so repeatedly commen
ted upon by us, during the reign of the dishonest
imbeciles, who have been so universally drummed,
out of office, that we approach the subject again
with somewhat of reluctance.
The project of paving Broadway with blocked
granite, is one that will greatly tend to improve
itn present almost dilapidated condition. It should
be pressed, vigorously and strenuously, from the
very outset, by the new Corporation. There is no
part of our city that more requires the immediate
attention of the authorities tsan this very Broad
way. Independent of the wretched condition in
which it is placed, there are many other abuses
existing in this vicinity, that should be remedied
with promptness and energy. The omnibus sys
tem should be thoroughly reformed. The racing
carried on, to the danger oi life and limb, is only
surpassed by the impudence with whioh these dri
vers, not satisfied with having the privilege of
dropping passengers on the cross-ways, but they
invariably take up the whole space by their horses
and vehicles, so as to impede the progress of the
foot passengers across the streets. It is also in
contemplation to open, in continuation from Cana'
street, a passage to the Bowery, and to improve
the public sewers, so as to make them connect, by
the formation of a large reservoir, to run from the
latter place, and join the one in Canal street. The
opening of such a street, on a magnificent scale,
ouch as Bowery and Broadway, connecting
these two of our finest streets, and the formation
of a large public sewer, direct to Canal street from
Bowery, opens such a field for public improve
ment, that we cannot too strongly recommend it. I
The condition of the branch streets that intersect
in this line from Canal street, direct to Bowery, ]
admit of considerable improvement; and, viewed
in every aspect, such a project would greatly beau
tify and improve the localities wc refer to.
Vai.uk op the Express Links ?We are so fre
quently indebted to the express lines, centering in
this city, that we feel constrained to notice them
?their enterprise?and their value to the commu
There are three lines, which, centering here, di
verge to all points of the Union. The first is AdiflA
and Co, the Great Eastern, Southern, and South
western forwarders. They now run through to
Portlandjat the Hast, New Orleans at the South,
and St. Louis at the West. They have one or two
hundred men in their employ, who work on an
average twelve hours a day, and are remarkable
for their energy and enterprise. They take par
cels in this city and deliver them safely, in at least
a hundred different cities on their route. In addi
tion to this, they have an English and French line,
through which they forward to all parts of Europe,
by every steamer and sailing packet from New
York, Boston and Philadelphia. Indeed, their
name and business is spread over the whole
The second is Livingston and Wells, the Great
Northern and North-Western line. This concern
has been on the route for several years. They
have one of the best arranged houses in this city,
for the business in which they are engaged. They
run to Albany, Buffalo, Montreal, to all the inter
mediate towns and cities, and to almost every
point on the Great Lakes. They are also engaged
m a Foreign Agcney, in which they transact a
large business They are indomitable in their
enterprise, and are everywhere favorably known.
The third line in (fay's. This has just started
into existence. Thus far it has warmed by the
public patronage, and as it is conducted with skill
and prudence, it may shortly incn aae into an exten
sive forwarding establishment. Mr. Gay runs to
and from Boston, and carries email parcels.
These three lines are of great value to not only
the mercantile classes, but the whole community.
The cheap postage system has been brought about
by them and the independent press of the country,
and they will, therefor^, continue to receive the
support of the public. No set of men have ever
di"played more spirit and enterprise than the man
ger* of this line. They have become a marked
feature of America
Libels and L'ril 8ftii,SW? tec it stated in
jome of the papers, that tomr p.r?on by the uaiue
of "Hum" has been prosecuting the proprietor ol
the Niw York Herald tor an alleged libe', contained
in a police report published ! tst euinmir, in whieh
his name was mentioned in connection with some
facta transpiring at the Police Office. It appear*
that el' er a great deal of expenditure and the em
ployment of a prodigious arrny of counsel, inciu
ding A L Jordan, Eiq , and Ex-Mayor Morris,
(Muiticuu'is Motrib) ai.d some other lawyers, he
procured a nrdict of fifty dollars damages against
Oa inquiring into the facts of the case, we have
loum', from our police reporter and lawyer, what
they redly are, forthe truth is,that for months alter
the suit was commenced we never knew what
these facta were, or who Mr. Hunt was, or what
he had to do in the Corporation. It appears, then,
that our reporter in giving a statement of the pro
ceedings at the Police Office, coupled with the
name of this Hunt the epithet of "informer," he hav
ing given information to the municipal authorities
against certain hotel keepers who had, it >vas al
leged, contravened the ordinances of the Corpora
tion, in selling spirituous liquors on Sundays, or in
some other way. The whole gist of the libel was
contained in this 4word, "informer," and on this
point the judge (Ulshoeffer) charged the jury, that
if they considered the word applied in an improper
sense they must fiad a verdict lor the plaintiff. Ou
examining this case?the judge's charge to the
jury, and several other important points?we are
perfectly satisfied that the opinion.of the Judge,
and the verdiet of the jury, cannot be sustained
in law. It is a miserable and contemptible
muter, for fifty dollars, to carry up a case of
this kind to the Supreme Court ; but we mean
t3 do so, and if need be to bring it btfote
the Court of Errorr. We have adopted this course
because it is necessary, as a sort of defencu against
these petty suits, to ascertain precisely what the
law is, according to the decisions of the highest
legal tribunal of the. State, in relation to police re
ports, and the mode of expressing them, as now car
ried on by the newspapers. Towards Hunt, the
person who has sued us, or any ether party occu
pying a similar position, we can have no feeling,
either one way or the other. The only recollec
tion that we have of Hunf,:s his calling at our office
long after the publication in question, nnd making
some complaint about it. We replied?" Make
out a statement of your grievance as you under
stand it, and we will publish it with the greatest
pleasure in the world." Mr. Hunt, it seems, was
not satisfied with that assurance, but commenccd
a suit, and we are informed that there are eight or
ten, perhaps fifteen or sixteen, similar Buits about to
be brought for police reports, against the proprie
tors of the other newspapers in thiB city, provided
the case against the Herald succeeds.
Now' here is the point on which we are prepared
to contest the matter. Having directed our coun
sel to investigate the whole affair, we have every
belief that the charge of Judge Ulshoefler is not
sound in law, and that the verdict, ot course, must
fall to the ground. Though we mean thus to rro
secute this casejyet, if Mr. Hunt had wanted $50
or $100, as a matter of charity, as would indeed
appeal to be the case from the pathetic appeal i>f
his lawver, ex-Mayor Morris,(Multicau'it Morri;,)
we would have cheerfully contributed that sum
to aid a fellow-being in distress. Bat while we
are ready to give for charity, we will not b? inti
midated by law or lawyers. We do not believe
that the decision in the case can be sustained, auti
we mean to test it before the Supreme Court, and,
if necessary, the Court of Error*.
Important Naval Movement ?The fleet or the

There had been a great excitement at that pljice
in consequence of the discovery of a conspiracy to
subvert the existing government. It was increased
by the arrests of several persons concerned in it.?
After the execution, however, of four of the con

This wae probably a part cf Herrard's party. We
have yet to hear how that chief has succeeded in
his attempt to revolutionize the island.
Late from the Capr op Good IIopr ? We. have
received the Cape Town Gazette, of the 21st oi
Feb. It contains nc news except relative to guano.
Of that article it gives the following intelligence i?

The destruction oi the Bowery theatre will hardly
nuke a void in theatrical amusements in that re
gion of ihe city. We learn that the " Bowery Am
phitheatre" is to be converted into the "Bowery
Theatre," and gives its first dramatic entertain
ment on Monday, May 5th. Tryon is manager,
and its location is capital for the succession. The
priced and process will be the same as Ihat of the
old burnt-up Bowery, and Tryon will no doubt take
the tide at the (hod. It is said, too, that Hamblin,
who has lost all the earnings of the last seven years,
has not lost his Epirit, eBergy or perseverance?he
is already preparing to build a new theatre opposite

regard to Hamblin himself, we have had some
passes with him in former years, but we are now
willing to forget the past. With the recent sad
calamity on his shoulders, the poor man is indeed
to be pitied; and therefore we say let by gones be
by-gones, and are willing to lend him any aid in
our power. He has been punished severely enough
by un overruling destiny for any errors he may
have committed, and he really possesses a good
deal of indomitable courage and many pretty fair
traits of character. Adversity will doubtless make
him like others who are subjected to its discipline,

that the two D.'s are now hard at work trying to

Outrageous Attsmpt at Murder.?It has sel
dom been our lot to record a more fiendish at
tempt to commit murder than the following On Thur?
day night last, at a late hour, a gentleman pamirg down
St Francis street, observed a woman with a bundle iu
her hand stealing into the yard of a respectable family
living above Cedar street, and suspecting from her ap
pearanoe that she was on some errand of mischief, watch
ed her attentively. She was seen to approach the wall
and throw the bundle into it, which fell with a heavy
sound. When she retired, the gentleman immediately
awakened the family, and informed them of what had
Cised, stating at the same time hiit opinion that poison
d been thrown into the water. His timely and friendly
notice waa heeded, and all communication with the weil
being stopped, yesterday mornlDg searoh was made, and
a brickbat iound, to which waa attached a package ol
arsenic, evidently thrown in for the malicious and nend
ish purpose of poisoning some of the inmates of the house.
The female, who was seen by the only witness of the
transaction, ia an abandoned woman, by the name ot
Elizi Davis, but who, when in Cincinnati, went by tha
name of Ellen K. Thompson. In all the police history of
our city, we have never been called upon to record aucb
an outrage. An examination will, we arc informed, be
had before the Mayor this morning.?Mobile Herald, 19M

All waa quiet. The meeting which was to have taken
place at Turnbull's, on Monday, was abandoned, and it is
probable that the law will now be permitted to take hold
or those who have violated it. The two Turnbulls and
Norrall were still living. It is aaid that at the time of
the first affray, a-j officer was among the assailants, with
a warrant for the apprehension of one of the Turnbulls,
and that such resistance was net expected St. Louit

Assassination ?A letterdated Bayou Lafourche,

" A frightful occurrence took place a few days since, at
Pincourtville. On Wednesday last, a negro belonging to
Mr. Vella, stabbed Mr. Moran Simonneau, with a poignant.
The latter had been watching the negro for several days
when on Wednesday, botween 11 and 12 o'clock at night,
he perceived him attonpting to cross the bayou He call
ed to him to atop, and rushed forward to seise him, but no
sooner had he touched him, than the negro plunged his
digger in bis breast near the shoulder. Mr. Simonneau
is not expected to live. The murderer was arrested yes

April JIT?? P. n.
There h?ve been several movements within the past
week which it wu supposed weald effect the stook merket
v?ry utif?or?l)ly ; but they have passed away, and prices
doled yesterday several percent higher than hare been
current within the put two or three weeks It waa anti
cipated, ou the receipt of the newa hy the Caledonia, that
stock* wculd reoeive a severe blow, on account of
the warlike tone of the British ministry in rotation to
Oregon. Theae anticipations were, in a measure, real
ized, and quotations fell off within the next twenty-four
hours several per cent; but prioes soon rallied, and a
decided improvement followed. The departure ef the
Groat Western was another cauia of a temporary da.
c'.ine. The advices par the Caledonia were received in
the markets of this city on tha 33d instant, and tha Great
Western left on the 24th, so soon after tha Caledonia's
arrival that the markets had hardly time to recsvar from
the first shock of tha news received. Whenever the
bears of Wall street are in the ascendancy, and have the
control of the stook market, they make it a point to de'
press the market en packet-day, for the purpose ef affect
ing the markets abroad, whioh, in turn, operates.on our
local markets, and gives those bearing down prices a
two-fold power in carrying out their object The stock
market is in a very peculiar position. A few weeks
since, any trifling rumor, predicting a rupture with
Mexico, would depress stocks and cause a deoline
in prices of one or two per cent Even an exeitiug
debate in Congress would create a flurry among stock
operators, endangering prices, and requiring several days
to regulate and quiet down. An anticipated difficulty
with Brazil created a panic in the stock market which
required several days to allay, while our reoent ad
vices Iron Great Britain, oi a more important and exciting
nsture than has been received lor years before, had but
a slight injurious effect upon the stock market,which wad
immediately followed by an advance greater than has
been realised for at least three or four weeks pre
vious. We cau only attribute of thlsatate of things
to the absence of other speculative movements in
the markets, and a greater accumulation of capital
in the street, to be employed in stoeks, either as
permanent investments or speculations. There have re
cently been attempts made to get up a corner in some of
the staple article* of consumption in this counts y, such
as beef, pork, sugar and ooff jo. Soma of these attempts
have proved abortive, and alter a desperate effort, those
engaged withdrew themselves from the movement, and
the excitement rapidly subsided. The oapital that eager
ly coujht employment in these things, hes return
el to the sire# t, end for the want of a safer and more pro
able investment, it must go into stocks. In this way wo
cm only account for the rapid rise in stocks, in the fsce
of accounts from England, which cannot at least be con
sidered otherwise than belligerent, and indicative of
much difficulty. There in another peculiar feature in tla
s ock market. Any sorner that may be got up of any
of the fancy stocks, does not have that influanoe upon
others in the list, usual, whereas a decline in any slock,
from any cause, is sure to fccsrry others down with it?
This shows a very unsettled, fevarish state of prices, and
is sufficient to convince those interested, that it is much
safer to be involved in such as Norwich and Worcester,
Long Island and other railroad stocks, that must eventu
ally, no matter what the operations in the street msy be,
become good investments, and come back again to a point
ull as higb,if not higher,than ever yet realised. Specu
la ions in faacy stocks, having no real value at present
)r in the perspective, are generally very hazardous, and
calculated to pretty effectively use up any inexperienced
individual' who is desperate enough to go into them.
We annex a table of comparative quotations for some o f
ho principal stocks used for speculation in this msrket,
for each day of the past week, also the closing prices for
the week previous. There has been a slight improve
ment in nearly every stook in the list.
