The Stw?,
Though not quite of such an exciting character as
they have been for a few days previous, our despatch
es from W ashington this morning contain much vety
inUresting information. The feverish political trance
has nearly ceased; and the thousands of visiters who
had been drawn together at the capital, for the pur
pose of witnessing the inaugural ceremonies, have j
nearly all disappeared. But the office seekers, the I
anxious aspirants, many of whom have given up lu- |
crative stations in their seal to serve their country,
are left behind, and there many of them are likely to
remain till all hope vanishes, and with it every dollar 1
from their pockets? until , at last, they would be hap- j
py to earn their bread by performing the most ardu- 1
ous -physical labor. Huw much better would it have '
been for the majority of these . misguided men had I
they followed the example of Gen. Pierce, and re- I
anained at home until called upon to render service
ior the public welfare.
Our special correspondents write that false rumors
were yesterday rife in the national capital that a
difficulty had sprung up in the cabinet. The hoax
appears to have gained credence from the simple
feet that Col. Jeff. Davis was desirous, from mere
personal considerations, of being excused from
Bemng in the new administration. His scruples,
nowever, were overcome, and consequently the
cabinet, as originally framed and hitherto published
Jnonr columns, will be sent to the Senate, and pro
bably confirmed, on Monday. Nothing definite is
known concerning the appointment of foreign
ministers, except that the first men in the nation
regardless of section, will be selected, and that
Senator Soule, for one, will be sent to either France
or Spain.
It is reported that Count Pulzsky, Kossuth's former I
Secretary, has gone to Washington, with the inten
tion of laying before the President certain impor.
tant and exclusive information concerning the ope
latkms of Russia against Turkey, and the prospect
of a general European war. Query? Has not the
jmwpect of a general rising of the masses in the
Old *orld against their rulers been completely
knocked on the head, for the present, by the recent
tumccessful outbreak in Italy?
Laudatory comments upon the Presidents inau
gural address are pouring in from all quarters. Whigs
as well as democrats are delighted with it. In short,
everybody is pleased except the abolitionists. Gen.
Cass is happy to find Gen. P. a " real old fogy," and
Judge Douglas is equally happy to discover that he
is a true disciple of Young America. The fact is
that the address is so concise and clear that there is
110 misunderstanding it.
We are . sorry to be compelled to repeat the old
?tory, that nothing of special interest was done in
cither branch of the New York Legislature yester
?ay. reference to the despatch from our special
correspondent, it will be seen that the Broadway
Railroad affair is still undergoing investigation by the
Assembly's Railroad Committee.
Considerable excitement has been produced among
the financiers of Indiana, in consequence of the in
troduction of a bill in the Legislature providing for an
increase of depositee as security for free banks, and
imposing other restrictions. The bankers, thus far,
are reported to have had sufficient influence over dif
ferent members to prevent their appearing in their
Beats whenever the bill has been before the House,
thereby depriving that body of a quorum. It would
thus appear that corruption, in the most glaring
form, doe;- not alone exist in New York. It is fear
lessly stalking among public functionaries of all
kinds throughout the country. No matter? there is
a good time coming.
About one hundred letters, destined for Bostonians,
are reported to have bees stolen from the mail agent,

A most important meeting, called for the reforma
tion of our city government, was held last evening, at
Metropolitan Hall. There was a numerous attend
ance of our citizens, who were enthusiastic in the
manifestation of their approval of the sentiments ut
tered by the several speakers. The address and re
solutions will be found in another part of this day's
paper, but a full report of the proceedings we must
defer until to-morrow.
The report of the City Ins]>ector shows that eighty
nix men, sixty-four women, one hundred and thirty
two boys, and ninety-seven girls, died during the
week which ended last night. The total-three hun
dred and seventy nine? exhibits a decrease of eight
cases when compared with the mortality table of the
foregoing seven days. There w no epidemic and
the diseases were of the ordinary type, which either
originate or are influenced toward a fatal result by
the state of the weather, diet, or crowded and ill
ventilated apartments. Of the adults, fifty.five died
from consumption, twenty from apoplexy nine from
dropsy, five from erjsipelas, and twenty-nine from
th.' various fevers. Scarlet fever took away eleven
of this number, and? a very rare occurrence in New
York- two died from yellow fever. We find that
the patients > ame here as passengers in the steamship
United Ktatcs, from A spin wall, and died in the hos
pital. One hundred and seven of the gross number
were children under one year of ajfe. and two hun
dred and fourteen had not attained ten years. Of
the infants, twenty-three died of dropsy in the head,
fifteen from croup, thirty-flve from convulsions, and
thirteen _ from smallpox. Two hundred and sixty
five of the whole number were natives of the United
fctates, seventy one came from Ireland, twentyone
from Germany, one from Cape de Verde, and the re
mainder from other distant countries.

The world has grown considerably wiser
since the honest folk of Boston were notified
that they might have their "houses, lands, Ac.,
to be sold or let. or servants runaway, or goods
t-tole or lost inserted in the Boston .Yews Letter,
at a reasonable rate, from twelve pence to five
shillings, and not to exceed." I" those days ?
we are sptaking of a century and a hull' since ?
the philosophy of trade was so ill understood
that the rich alone durst embark in commerce;
to the poor man it was almost inevitable ruin.
He who had coffers well filled with gold and
precious stones might lend, on usurious inter
est and nafe mortgage, to spendthrifts of good
family; and the owner of half a dozen portly
argosies might double his funds by a fortunate
venture in the produce of the Mediterranean or
the Indian countries. A Shylock might enhance
the wealth of his house by receiving crown
jewels in pawn; and a high born Antonio might
reap golden treasure from his monopoly of the
trade with Barbary or Mexico. Bnt "petty
traffickers." who "curtsied reverence" to the le
viathanB on "Change were devoutly to be pitied.
Crushed by vexatious exactions, which the
wealth of his rivals enabled them to escape,
hampered by restrictions which were absurdly
supposed to protect trade, and overpowered* by
the superior facilities enjoyed by more power
ful competitors, the young merchant of the
seventeenth century had many reasons for en*
vying the condition of the mechanic or the hus
bandman. His talents might be far greater
than those of his next-door neighbor. Croesus;
his enterprise might enable him to undersell all
his rivals; his tea might be the most flagrant Pe
koe. his broadcloth of finest texture, and his ruf
ffles of richest Valenciennes ? all these claims to
preference were valueless, from being unknown.
He had no means of apprizing the world of
their existence. Thrifty housekeepers lived
and died in ignorance of the cheapness of his
sugar or the merits of his calico. The crowd
passed him in silence to flock to the emporium
where they had been accustomed to deal.
Loud talking in taverns, zealous exertions of
friends, and even the bellman could not reach,
every ear. To the majority of those who might
have been his customers, it was the work of
years to convey an intimation of his claims to
Hence grew the advertisement. Not without
many struggles, much contempt and often re
peated sneers, did its infancy ripen into adoles
cence. A sad tale is told in the appeal "To all
Persons who Love a Public Good." which honest
John Campbell, Postmaster, and proprietor of
the Boston News Letter , was wont to issue at
the change of seasons. But it had common
sense on its side, and of course prevailed in the
end. Storekeepers found their sales increased
by a periodical notice in the paper. Men of
property were besieged by applicants for lots
and houses as soon as the little paragraph ? '-For
Sale or to Let," had been scattered through
the city. Enterprising traders, willing to fore
go great profits for the sake of a large business
made terrible inroads on their rivals' customers
by the help of a brief announcement of their
design in mignon. All flocked to the newspa
per. as the real dispenser of success and for
Of all the members of the community, the
young merchant is perhaps the one who owes the
mo6t to the advertising system. It places him at
once before the public on a level with old eetab
lished houses ? if he have aught to say in favor
of himself, he can speak out unhesitatingly, and
all the world hears him. Complaints of un
merited neglect are absurd where the advertise
ment is known. But though perhaps the great
est. he is by no means the only gainer by the
advertising system. All who buy or sell, rent or
hire, employ labor or work themselves, regard
it as their safest resource in time of need. Pro
fessional men seek notoriety through its in
fluence; politicians use it as a substitute for the
gathering-cry of fid: publishers, authors, thea
tres hotels, steamers. railroads, would think
their doom scaled if its benefits were denied
them. And when we remember that one half
thfc world expends its life in vain endeavors to
find the other half, it will not appear strange
that people Bhould even resort to the newspa
pers for the gratification of necessities of a less
tangible and business character.
The Germans, and others not quite so far
from home, wish their friends a happy new
year." and ?? many returns'' of a birth day. in an
advertisement. V\'e Gothamites have not yet
reached this pitch of civilization ; but we
are decidedly progressing. " Matrimonial in
vitations."' as th<;y arc called in Germany,
are becoming quite familiar to our readers.
Our columns frequently contain a modest
announcement that a " gentleman of pre
possessing appearance," and in ''comfortable
circumstances,'" is desirous of meeting with a
lady of " agreeable exterior," ?' average accom
plishments, " and. we blush to add, '? possessing
a small competency." to relieve him from the
ennui of celibacy. Few of these soft-hearted
bachelors are solicitous about beauty; spurning
the conventional prejudices of the day, they
rightly set the graces of the mind above those
of the jtersoD. and are ready to overlook a pug
nose lor a smattering of French, and compromise
their aversion to red hair for the sake of a
corner lot in Forty-fifth street. Themselves,
they generally paint in sober but pleasing
colors ; unlike foreigners, who, in the like
case, deal largely in hyperbole.
With us, ladies seldom advertise; American
women are still hampered by old-fashioned
notions of propriety. Not so the belles o
Vienna. The Austrian papers frequently con
tain advertisements from ''a widow, childless,
and of unspotted character;" or from -'a very
solid, respectable miss," soliciting the notice of
bachelors. One lady, with commendable
straightforwardness, boldly announces that she
? wishes to take charge of a single gentleman,
and do for him altogether. Apply, ?tc." In
this country, if a disconsolate widow or impa
tient damsel desires to accept a lord and
master at all risk, she generally adopts some
such form as this : ?
Board.-- A widow lady, of agreeable manners and
cheerful disposition, who in not averse to a second
tJiarriape, ran accommodate a single gentleman with
board and lodging in a quiet house, where he would
find the comforts of a home. Terms of less conse
quence than pleasant society. Apply, Ac.
Or if the candidate for matrimony be a spin
ster. her mamma judiciously announces that
"Pleasant rooms and board for single gentlemen
can be had in a private family, consisting of
and a young lady, who would endeavor to
make lodgers comfortable." No one can mis
take the touching allusion to the "'comforts of a
home" in the former, or the covert guarantee
for the lodger's comfort in the latter. The dis
guise Is pretty, and save? the feelings of the
fair applicant, bat it is quite transparent.
But why so much affectation or C0DC??ln>?Dt
in the matter? These United States contain
about four millions of bachelors who are look
ing for wives, and rather more spinsters who
are looking for husbands. If matters were ar
ranged on a rational basis, each one of the four
million bachelors would be allowed to choose
out of the four million or more of spinsters, and
vice versa ; whereas, in reality, a man's choice
is confined to a few score at most, and a lady
must select from a mere half dozen. The con
sequence is, that few of either sex marry the
ideal they have formed, though he or she may
reully exist in flesh and blood. The wife we
have pictured in our dreams may live in the
next street ; but we may never meet her, and,
in despair at deferred hope, we pop the question
to Sally, who has a Roman nose, or to Lizzie,
who squints. So. Blanche, who has wandered
over all the ball-rooms in New York for three
seasons, in search of her ''model husband," ends
by marrying Jenkins, whom she positively dis
likes, or Snobbs, whom she hardly knows.
This is a radical defect in the organization of
modern society. Has anybody the courage to
assert that in sentiment we lag behind the age,
and that the bachelor or the lady who goes to a
ball or a watering place, ostensibly in search
of a ''help meet," need not scruple to adopt the
more rational course of proclaiming their ma
trimonial wants in an advertisement ?
Improvements in the Citt. ? The most ex
tensive arrangements are making for improve

The Literary World.
The printers hare for several weeks been unusually
busy, and it is believed that the March trade tales will
be well supplied with new works, as well as new edition#.
The most important original contributions to.1 literature,
however, now in preparation, will probably not eome out j
until pome time in the summer.
Mr Bancroft in printing the concluding volume of hi?
" History of the Revolution. " Whatever may be Haid of
particular points and qualities in this splendid perform
ance, it is not questionable that upon the whole it is the
noblest piece of historical writing furnished to the read
ers of English in our age. We sometimes dissent from
Mr. Bancroft, but have never ocsasion to doubt hi* sur
passing abilities, his truly American spirit, or the de
liberate carefulness of his judgments; and bo contem
porary writes in a style more glowing, attractive, and
suitable to his purposes. We believe it is Mr. Bancroft's
intention, on completing his History of the Revolution,
to proceed with the "Administrations of Washington,
Adams, Jefferson, and Madison"? down, indeed, to the
close of the second war with England. The public may
be congratulated upon such an expectation. A discus
?ion of the rise and advancement of parties, by so indus
trious a student and shrewd a speculator, will certainly
be popular? more popular, we believe, for the compara
tive freshness of the subject, than those parts of his
great work which are about to be finished. But if Mr.
Bancroft is to go on with the more modern history of the
United States, we hope he will pause long enough in that
pursuit to give ns the Life of Samuel Adams, for
which he is known to have the most ample materials.
Such a work is demanded, in justice to the stern and
noble old patriot? and no man living can write it as well
as the great historian who U n<*r occupied with our
general political and military annals, for the period of
his activity. i
Mr. Randall. one of ofatto, Has u?n several
j* ars engaged on a life of Jefferson ; he has had acoess
to much original and valuable material, and he will un
doubtedly produce a work of great interest to politicians
and historical student*. It is remarkable that ao one has
ever yet brought out a complete edition of the Writings
of Mr Jefferson. The four volumes edited by himself,
and published by hii grandson, Mr. Thomas Jefferson
Randolph, it is well known, do not oomprise even a moiety
of his printed correspondence. We have every page that
eao be found of Washington, Franklin, Adams, Hamiltou,
and other contemporaries, but have attll to study the
great chief of the democratic party in files of State

The Appletons have commenced a complete edition Of
the Works of John C. Calhoun, with a volume contain
ing his "Treatise on Government," which will be followed
by collections of his speeches and letters, and an extended
memoir. In their department, no works of equal interest
and value have appeared in many years, and we trust
that the large party by whom Mr. Calhoun was eqaally
reverenced and beloved, will sec to it that this edition of
his writings is largely sold throughout the Union.
Recent English discussions of .Slavery in the United
States have provoked one of the many clcar-hcaded and
profound political economist of this age. Mr. Henry C.
Carey, to an elaborate treatment of the whole subject of
American and foreign slavery and serfdom, and his
work, which is nearly ready, will produce a sensa
tion throughout the world. Mr. Carey brings
to the examination of the difficult questions connected
with slavery, not only well di-ciplined faculties for the
observation of facts, and such powers of analysis and
generalization as belong to the first class of great intelli
gences, but the advantage of aceoss to the largest au
dience that can be reached by any living writer on public
affairs. His supremacy among contemporary political
economists is acknowledged by ths best critics in every
country where political economy is studied, and whatever
he writes is sure ef immediate translation into the chief
European languages, as well as of respectful considera
tion by the advanced and enlightened thinkers of Great
Britain and our own country. The men, as well as "the
women of England," will be apt to find, In Mr Carey's

Professor Taj ler Lewii is preparing for immediate pub
lication, a volume on " The Six Day* of Creation." The
sham scholarship of the little but clamorous clan of iofi
del mountebanks, who continually vex the ears of people
who hear " popular lectures,' or the eyes of those who
read " progressive newspapers," with their snapping,
barking, and sneering at Christianity, will be exhibit*!
in a proper light by the able crltie of " Plato Contra
Atheos," who is as much droaded by that class of crea
tures as was ever a (sheriff by a nest of coiners.
Mr. Fletcher Webster is occupied with " Recollections
of the Private Life and Conversations" of his illustrious
father? ft work which will be eagerly read. The task
of editing the " Memoirs and Correspondence of Mr Web
ster," we understand, is for the most part confided by his
assoc.ate literary executors to Mr. George Ticknor, the
able and thoroughly accomplished author of the "History
ot Spanish literature," who*e intimate personal relations
and political sympathy with the great leader vindicate his
special charge of this irn|>ortant duty. We are annious
for the printing of Mr. Webster's letters, and have no
doubt that Mr . Ticknor will execute his office in regard
to thetn as Judiciously and satisfactorily as is possible
under existing circumstances, but there must be much
?specially respecting persons, in his confidential eomrnuni
cations, which cannot be submitted to the present gene
ration. It would lie delightful to look over, in anticipa

The charming authoress, Alice Carey, has in press a

The long expected work of Austin Henry Layard, on his
later investigations in ancient Nineveh and Babylon, and
their results, is at length completed, and will be imme
diately published here. The first work of Layard on thi*
subject was wonderfully popular; no book of travels, cost
ing so much money, was ever so largely sold in this coun
try; and the forthcoming volumes will probably be sought
with equal avidity.
A new Encyclopaedia of Geography has just been com

which it will cmbrace.

Talk on 'Change.
There was further talk about city matters, and some
anxiety expressed to know what would be the decision of
the judges in the injunction case against the Aldermen.
The measures proposed for reform before the Legislature
were approved by several merchants who referred to the
subject. The meeting last night was also considered im
portant, and calculated to do good, if well managed.
Some merchants think that some kind of commercial
court or tribunal of commerce, as called by the French,
ought to be established. Commercial movements require
speedy decisions. Cases frequently occur where, from
the delay created by having mercantile suits mixed up
with ordinary litigation in other courts, serious and un
necessary losses are sustained. By having a court speci
ally charged with the trial of cases arising out of com
mercial pursuits, in a great centre of trade like New
York, basinets would be greatly benefitted.
Another merchant suggested that Congress should
establish a bureau, or boardfof trade, which should com
pile and publish quarterly, or semi-annually, statistics
relating to trade both foreign and domestic. The same
might also be made to Include statistics in general, in
cluding those of agriculture, manufactures, &c. Infor
mation thus gathered and published would prove ex.
ccedingly valuable. Its tables would assist and guide
Congress in judicious legislation for the public good.

away eighty-four passengers and $96,000 in specie. The
Union has been running, for several months back, in Spof
ford k Tileston's Charleston line, but is now transferred
to the California trade again, from which she was with
drawn some time back. To-mirr >w, the British propeller
Merlin will sail for Bermuda and St. Thomas, from which
trade she was removed, and placed on the Bermuda and
Halifax line, and ber place supplied here by the new
steamer l'etrel. The latter has. however, we believe,
been found too large for the service, and will return in a

altogether to upwards of 1,600 souls.

Pakis, Friday, Feb 18, 1863.
The Bourse opened heavy, under the unfavorable im
pression produced in the public mind by the imperial de
cree, published in the Moniteur, increasing the pay of non
commissioned officers of the army. Speculators regard it
as a warlike measure, and when the three per eents were
called at 88f. 6c, many began to sail, in order to realize the
profits made by the rise of Thursday. The three's finally
closed at 87f. The 4 per cents closed at lOtif. Railway
shares ware not so much affected, and Bome descriptions
rose on the announcement that they were in good demand
in the London markets.
Additional from Bnenoa Ayra.
Tha news from Buenos Ay res, to January 2d, brought
by the Cambria, is to the effect that the party who hare
control of Buenos Ayres are still beselged by the out
siders, to whose demands the government would not sub
mit. Several engagements have taken place, with loss
of life.
In the city the Custam House was closed, and all busi
ness suspended.
It was rumored that the son of the President of Para
guay was is Buenos Ayres, and it was thought that Para
guay might join Buenoa Ayres agaiopt Urquiza.

Bosworth, associate justice.
This being supposed to be the "day of judgment" on the
Aldermen, for tlieir contempt of the judiciary, in passing
the grant for the Broadway Railroad, the greatest excite
ment prevailed. The Superior Court room and galleries
were densely crowded; and between ten and eleven
o'clock the civic authorities assembled to hear the sen
tence of the law. Everyone reemed in good humor, and
none looked in better spirits than the aldermen them
selves. At a few minutes after 11 o'clock the judges
took their seats, when the defendants were called, and
all answered except Alderman Peck, who is still suffering
from indisposition.
Judge Duer said ? Owing to the indisposition of Judge
Emmet, and his absence from the city, we are under the
necessity of postponing our final judgment until Satur
day next. This will, however, not delay the matter, for
even if we were to deliver judgment now as to the ene
(If any) to be imposed, we should still have to direct a
reference to ascertain the costs and expenses. We
therefore direct that reference now.to ascertain the costs
and expenses, and what sum shall be allowed as a rea
sonable counsel's fee to the parties in the case, and I
shall require tha referee to report to me on or
before Thursday morning. The parties will appear
on Saturday, when our final judgment will be given,
and then, the sum to be allowed for costs and expenses
being ascertained, the order will be complete and entered.
An appeal may then be made to the General Term; so
there will be no delay in the progtess of the matter. We
shall refer this matter to William Kent, Esq., to ascertain
and report what are the costs which the parties have
sustained in each ease, and what sum shall be allowed to
them for actual disbursements, and what sum in each
cafe for a reasonable counsel fee. Let an order be eu
tered in each case to that effect; and those in attendance
will be recognized to appear again on Saturday next.
It was then left to the arrangement of counsel whether
they should attend before the referee on Monday or Tues
day. And the Common Council,
? About six and twenty men,
Marched into court, and then marched out again.

Saturday, March 5?0 P. M.
At the opening of the stock market thin morning, there
wan an active demand for the fancies, and better prices
prevailed. Cumberland Coal was freely offered, and pretty
freely taken, but the Block came out in such quantities
that prices gave way, and closed at a decline. Nica"
ra^ua Transit rather improved from the opening. All the
small stocks were put out freely, and prices were tolerably
well sustained The slight reaction in the other fancies
cannot be otherwise than short lived. We have no faith
in any permanent improvement in prices for worthless
stocks. At the opening of the second board the advance
of the morning was maintained, but it did not last long. A
shell was thrown into the speculators' camp, and a fearful
panic ensued? prices w ent down on the run, and thero
were a dozen seil?rs where there was one buyer. After the
board, Cumberland was offered at 00; Nicaragua at 81 t*;
Erie Railroad at 86% : Harlem 66%. From the feeling
prevailing in the street at the close, it is oar impression
that there will be a great rush to sell on the opening of
the board on Monday. A pretty good idea of the state of
the money market and the position of speculators be
derived from the fact that the difference between cash
prices and those on time, buyer's option, sixty days, range
from 1% to 2 per eent.
