A Iter the usual preliminary business, the convention adjourned till Monday evening next,without making tiny nominations. The convention to nominate sheritf, county clerk aud coroner, meet again this evening to endeavor to arrive at some result They have already been in session three times, without making any nomination. and a like adherence on the part of the dele? ites to their favorite candidates will prevent any nomination from being made uy the present body. Had they sterling republicanism sufficient to vote vivx voce, instead of by ballot, a nomination wouid soon be effected, but we cannot expect such a display of fairness where all is trick, trap, and trsde. At the last meeting there were fifteen ballotings, of which Emmans received 147 votes?Attwood 411?and Westervelt 30'1. The Seaman vote was changed and shifted in favor of either of the above candidates to suit their own peculiar notions. Should the convention be unable to nominate at the meeting to-night, they had better resign their posts into the iiands ol the people, and let a new election f ollow for others who can better carry out the wishes of the democratic community. The American Republican, Party, as it is called, have made the following nominations, to be sup_ thn IriPiida <-4 fhncn nnnncoi) tn oil nnmi nations lor office except native born American citizens. ForSenator, Mangle M. Ciudckenbo?s. Mr. Q. was in nomination before the late democratic convention that selected Mr. Jones. For County Citrk, Horace Loofborrow, late Mayor's Clerk under the whig corporation. For Sheriff', Charlee Henry Hail, ol the 12th ward. For Coroner, Dr. J. C Forrester, of the 14ih ward. It is very uncertain whrtherany of these candidates, except Mr. Quackenboss, will consent to serve, as they will fear doing injury to their political friends in nomination for the same offices. These nominations are to be sub milted to a general meeting to be held on Monday evening next, at the public square in Christopher between Greenwich and Washington streets. Steam Ship Great Western, CArx. Hoskkn ? This very successful nnd fortunate steamer, on her next visit to this city, will be under the command of another Captain. Her present commander leaves her on his return from the present voyage, to take command of the Great Britain. It is nearly six years since she first made her appearance in our waters, during which time she has not met with the slightest accident, or been detained an hour beyond her fixed time tor departure. She has transported more people across the broad Atlantic than any other ship afloat. She has made the quickest voyages from port to port?distance considered?than any other steam ship. Capt. Ilosken, by his gentlemanly attentions and Bkillol management, while in command of the ( treat Western, has made many vrann Iriends, who will ever take great interest in his welfare and success with his new command and increased responsibility. We hope our citiiens will, belore his departure, manifest in some substantial manner the high respect entertained of him as a gentleman and a sailor, by the New Yorkers in particular. Could not a public dinner be given him at the ^stor. The D??g Trade.?The Rev. David Ilale, after a crusade of sorm years against the apple women in Wall street,finally triumphed gloriously in the wreck of pea Huts and the cru3h of cake. The elderly women and decrepid men who gained an honest living by supplying the little wants of the frequenters of the Post office and Exchange, were put to route. Those in the habit of eating candy and cracking nuts dun: g business hours, must now tike a glass of brandy and water instead. We congratulate David on his triumph, and with deep feelings of respect for his prowess, would call his attention to a fair held every day before the Exchange building, for the sale of dogs. It will make his mouth water to behold the collection of animals there displayed The object of the fair we have not ascertained, uor why there should suddenly spring up such a demand for dogs. It has long been known that commercial disaster overstocked thip devoted city on the disappearance of Bob While from the steps of the Manhattan Bank. Not a few of the broker?, dwelling upon the events of past years, *hake the head saga ciously, and say th? re-appearunce of the dogs is a good omen for Wall street. David's prognostications of " land ho !" never turned out successfully until the dogs appeared, and his mysterious silence on the subject now, inducesthe belief that the " dog star" is in the ascendant. Wickuffk's Efficient Post Offick Department.?An Albany paper of Wtdnesday has the following paragraph :?"

New York baa reason to be proud 1 indeed that an editor, so well inloi rned, so sagacious, ' and ol views so elevated, coudeseends to acknow1 led?.- Inn, r:i the head ol the New York preaB Mr. 1 Riu w i;. i;o tl-iubt thiuk himself well schooled I in ill-- t.iliotving extract ' We commence this day our war upon the whitfs," quoth the editor of the Richmond hnquirer ol the l(|ih, as it he had not been continually at war ' ui?on whig principles for about fifty years or more! What, however, most astonished us in this commencement, is, that he calls upon the New York Ht-rald formally to help him on, and help him out. The editor gravely sayf:? " We attach great importance to many articles in the New York Herald." "We beg leave, moat respectfully, to present this question to the deliberate consideration of Mr. KetteII, the able author ot the monied articles in the New York Herald, as well as to ask of him a verification or contradiction ot the statement made at the beginning of thin article, on the authority of the frieud who has just returned from the city of New York. We ask of the New York Herald the best estimate it can obtain of the receipt oi the Custom Houses, as well as of the general condition and resources ot the Treisury. We ask it in no idle spirit of curiosity, but from a sincere desire to assertain the truth, and to lay't belore the public. "We agree thoroughly with Mr. Ket'ellon the oppressive character oilihe existing tariff, on the absolute neeesfity of reducing it at the next session of Congress and, it possible, down to the compromise point Will Mr. K oblige us, still further, by making the best estimate from the materials in his power of the amounts ot ihe revenue, which may be calcula ed on, from the Custom House, on the basis of the compromise point! We should take it as a particular lavor, if he would forward us these views in a letter fur publication?iu case he does r.?t find it convenient or compatible with his plans, to throw them into the Herald. We know of no person, within our reach, wh*> is to well qualified to give us the desired information?and whoie views would carry with them so much weight as his; or, we would save him the [trouble of making this estimate. " Well, this is excellent. Mr. Ritchie is just going to begin an Anti Tariff Waruponihe Whigs, and lo, Cassius, help me, is the cry, or I sink. To us New Yorkers, it is one,of the most amusing spectacles in the world to see such presses as the Richmond Enquirer, the Washington Globe, and the Albany Argus adopting the money articles of the NewYork Herald as grave articlesto electioneer with, and to help Van Buren along. Too lazv themselves, or having too much respect lor themselves to manufacture statistics for their parjy, they resort to the fictions and falsehoods of an article so notrriously beneath contempt in the city where they are made, that no journal, either whig or locofoco, pays the least attention to them. They are unnoticed and unanswered here, because it is not MppOMd that there are any people, evenamong the readers of Mr. Ritchie, can in the least credit them. As a present example ot their estimation here, jook at Illinois stocks, which a manufactured letter in the money article ol the Herald attempted to cry up, a day or two after the arrival of the Acadia, but which, notwithstanding the pulling there, have fallen seven per cent. Can it be possible that the well educated agricultural population of Virginia are to be duped with New York-made statistics, that neither whig nor locofoco press here in the city held in sufficiently decent respect to notice1? Is the charivari stuff of a New Yopk populace sood enough lor the Virginia .plauterl But with this stuff, Mr. Ritchie is going to commence the war, and to act out his part in keep ing up that stupendous fraud, which lias lor twenty years trailed in the dust the trade, and the resources of one of the most naturally and physically gifted States ol the Union! j Virginia, however, must sooner or later burst through the night in which Mr. Ritchie would cloud her ThiB farcical effort calling upon the satirist and charivari journal of a populace to enlighten Virginia planters, is the crowning effort of the rididiculous, as if our offal should be their diet! Virginia hew nvnes and water power that cannot always put up with such delusion. Her own negroes, that rise or f u I in value, as manufacturers go up or go down in the vicinity ol Richmond, will put an end to it. Her great wheat crops rising or falling as the mouths ot manufacturers demand them at home, will stop it. Nothing indeed, but the peculiar genius of Mr Ritchie, as editor ot a widely circulatiug journal, could have kept these ereat tacts so many years from the observation of Virginians,? and the day when they are emancipated from Wis prejudices, and his influence will be ol as much value ".o them, as was Mr. Jefferson's Declaration of Independence. Till then, the State has the palsy. It is a living-dead-man. So, then, Booby, are you going to burst your breeches altogether 1 Ttie seal cannot be railed from off the bond, nor can it be counterfeited, "fue stale trick ol pronouncing exclusive news.manuUctured, has long since been exploded, and with it i/?p " envy, hatred, and malice, and all uncharita* Rentes," of those who endeavor to discredit thut which tiiey have neitner the industry nor tiie brains to rival. Amidst all this billingsgate, there is but one statement, and that is, that Illinois has fallen 7 per cent. On the day we published the letter of the commissioner, the stock sold at 39, to-day it closed at 37 ! That our statistics " are unanswered," is true, and that they are unanswerable, is fqually true. In relation to the peeple of Virginia, their intelligence and good sense have long led them to look to Mr. Ritchie with a respect, which they never,in the smallest degree,can entertain for a New York abolitionist editor, although the disappointed collateral proprietor of a plantation at the south This latter circumstance is the secret of the vituj>eration. "Her own negroes rise or fall in value," quoth the Booby. Wfiy did he not write "my own 1" What a revolution in opinion will not sixty negroes eflect!

TRAX9aKES9IONS E*CJTKM*.Vr IN PLATTs?f7RGn.?In a matter of eo much importance as one which has recently occurred in Platt*burgh, X. Y ,itwag but |.ro(>er to ascertain,that the facta were well authenticated before we gave them publicity. We rectntly received a letter detailing the crime of a clergyman inPlat?sburgh,to which we simply alluded iustead of publishing the letter which we received, because ihare are men who sometimes are wicked enough to fabricate stories which have a tendency to lujure innocent individuals, and we do not conceive that we used an excess of caution. Now, however, we have additional information, which leaves us no room to doubt, and as many, too many, resort to the church and to the priesthood as it secular profession in which, while most severely illiberal on all the rest the world, they indulge in a life anything but holy, and in vices and crimes the most revolting, we deem it a public duty to give a proper exposure to such as are proved to be gui'ty of hypocrisy and villainy. The case to which we have alluded appears then to he this The Revtrentl L Reed, Presbyterian minister ol Pittsburgh, has seduced a young girl, a member ol his church, and for six months, while " ministering in holy things" at (he altar, he has been violating one of the commands of the Supreme Being, whom he prolesses to serve, and with atrocious and impious hypocrisy, while conducting a " protracted meeting." These tacts themselves speak louder than any words that we could utter. The discovery was made very recently through a confidante oi the victim of the hoary hypocrite, to whom in female confidence the " related her experience."? From one youug l?dy it was told to another and another, " confidentially," until it reached one who brought it before the church. A committee was thereupon appointed to wait upon the Rtvtretul gentleman, but lor a time he stoutly denied the accusation; ultimately, hewever, he confessed the whole, and then absconded from the place. The young lady whom he seduced aud her parents were members ol the villain's church, and he has himself a wife and three children (the eldeBt about 20) whom he has for the present abandoned. The grief of the young lady's father, and the indignation of the inhabitants is said to be very great. The following is the copy of a publication which has been made in the village where the occurrance took place:? Lo, here am 1! ''Let him that thinketli he standeth, take heed lest lie fall." Even in a village as moral end righteous as Flattsburgh is, excrescences and festers, which arise from corrupt principles, will sometimes op. pesr; aud when they do, we deem it the duty of every citizen, who has the interest of the community at heart, to make rltorts to the best of his power, although they may be feeble, to prevent their dissemination and root out the rotteixneas. When we are daily witnessing acts of the grossest hypocrisy, wliich aie being committed by men who set themselves up as a standard lor morality and piety, and as examples by which the youth of our community are to mark out ihcir future course through this life ol trials and temptations, we feel it our duty to give a timely warning to the unwary and credulous of the evils that bt set them, and le t them understand, in language not to be misuuders'ood, that those presenting the Uirest exterior are not always possessed ol the purest hearts. We make these lew remarks by way of introducing a subject which is now familiar with every person in this community. All are aware of the villainous transaction that was brought to'light a few days since, in which a holy man of OoJ?the pastor ot the Presbyterian Church in this village? is tho prominent actor. This man?the Rev. (!) Mr Heed?a religious kypociite? who, lor the more lusy accomplishment of his hellish designs, pretended a greater degree of piety than his neighbor?who was zealous enough lor religion in public, but miserably UCUV.1PUVU1 mujwiuj iupn?io?was iuu i;ause UI ruiuillg 8 young and inexperienced girl?a member of his churcb ?and blighting :ne fondest hapes of parents, who, in an evil and unguarded hour, allowed a man free access to their domestic circle, whose only (and as they deemed sufficient) recommendation for morality was his holy calling. Instances of the kind above mentioned are of daily occurrence throughout the country. If we look into the annals of our courts of law, it will be found that religious teachers are as liable to the grosser passions oi our natures as others?it will be seen that ministers of almost every denomination have been brought forward charged with this offence, and in almost i very oas lound guilty on the l'u lest evidence. The reason of this is obvious, and may be explained in a few words. Our clergy, with few exceptions, are au indolent class ot men. Their vocation does not make it necessary for them to put thsmselvea to any inanuel labor?their only care is to prepare the re. quisite sermons for Sunday?(an easy matter, by the by) ? the remainder ot their time is spent in "visiting their flock'' and stuthug their precious bodies with little "nicknacks" sent them trom their "stuffed" congregations. By this manner of living, they enlarge tneir corporations, and ttieir minds become corrupt from the consequent inaction of those faculties which nature intended never should lie dormant. Clergymen have more frequent and favorable opportunities for indulging their carnal propensities than any other class of men; and against this sometimes unfortunate, and always unnecessary freedom, every head of a family should guard against. The a vacations of ministers bring them oftenei into contact with tue females of their congregations, it being an important part ol the pas Joral duty to visit th<* members of their churches at their dwellings, and hold "religious ccnveiaation" with them. These visits are chiefly to the lmlie??the minister finds them alone?the male part of the family is generally out of doors at their various avocations?our pastors have abundance ol leisure on their hands, and it would be remarkable if they were not brought into contact with females leasable to withstand their artful addresses than others?less practised in the ways of the world?as in the case above recorded. Aside from visiting, our divines have othwr "holy priviiiges" which are oftentimes most villainously abused. We refer to the holding of nightly "prayer meetings"?" lectures"?"class meetings"?"female prayer meetings"?"sewing societies," fkc., at which our man of God is in constant attendance. Then, in times ot great "revivals," w hat a holy solace it is to the hearts of those pious men, to seek out the "inquiring"sinner and breathe lorth the pure feelings of their hearts? and steal the holy kiss?tell of our Saviour's "loving kindness," and partake of the pure embrace?all of which none but the truly pious pastor can appreciate. Oh, crackee! who would not be " our minister"? Thesp assertions of ours may seem very bold, and aavor of blasphemy; but they nevertheless true?beyond contradiction?for undeniable proof can be produced to substantiate every assertion we have made?aye, and more. These things have occurred in owr village, and alas, are of too gr?at notoriety to b3 doubted. We wish it to be understood that we ore not aiming n blow at the cause of religion?far from it?that is a separate and dis. tinct subject ; but we regret that there are not more among its professors, who, by their "daily walk and conversation," can give better examples of its purity. We have made these remarks only to show that there is too much distinction made between those who profess and those who do not; when oftentimes the non-professor leads a mnro nvoinnlot v lift* than hi? rnnrc fnrtnnntr> noi<rKKnr " >?W>W v?. u-'gutlV' the professor. The young ladies, (heaven bless and preserve them? the married one* ought to know enough to take ram i>f themselves, or their husbands should do it.) will, we trust, profit by the unfortunate experienced their younir companion. They should leara to trust only in Go<l, anil !)? nrtraad by the pure pnesytt ol virtue and morality ?the dictates of conscience and reason- They should lctarn Irom this, toi, to respect virtue and morality .though dollied in tags; and that the "good society "or priests and the indolent gentry, so much courted and prizi d by them, is not slws?? the safest lor their reputations, or the mor. fui the advancement of their youthful minds in useful arts or religious refinement. Jlu-BELL'a Planetarium.?As much intercut is felt in the case which has recently occupied the attention of the Vice Chancellor in relation to Russell's Planetarium, (theinjunction on which is now dissolved) we have obtained the following report of the juil .nent given by ttie Vice Chancellor on Wednesday hm Honor said, that on hearing the bill in this cause read, the impression produced upon his mind was that, even assuming os proved, all the allegations set forth in it, no sufficient groe- !s lor t' e irterfen nee of the court were shown. That the claims ol the plaintiff, Qotiraud, were now under legal investigation before a court ot common law. and must in due time com.- before a jury ; that meanwhile, security, justify ing in the total amount of *4,800, wan given for all claims which Uouraud might establish, and tha' the sufficiency of Ihisiecurity was not disputed or denied. Tbnt therefore (io'iram), having ample means of redress at common law, the exercise of the extraordinary interference of this court by injunction ! seemed uncalled for, and that the rourt would view with suspicion a party sepking Such remed)- without strong i necessity. But an the qu> ?tion was not now before the | court on its merits, hut on the omitsior. of proper service or the bill on the defendants, his honor would not dissolve I the injunction on the matter of the bill. Since, hewcrer, Dr. Lardner and the other defendants were proved to be subject to heavy loss by delay,he wniild rrquire Gourstid ' to find immed ately two sure'ins justify jag in $13 (MM)each in default of which the injunction should be dissolved -Bn in th? event of such sureties being given, tl^> defendants should still be at liberty to move the coUrtio dissolve the injunction on the meritsof the case.

This convention was organized yesterday morning, at the repository of the institute, in the ParkThere was a very good attendance of persons interested in the production and manufacture ot silkMr. Stebbins, ot Ma:?achusetts, was called to the chair, and Mr. Harrison, ot Nrw llavtn, appointed secretary. Messrs. Barbour, Smith and Meigs were appointed a committee to nominate officers ot the convention, who reported the following ticket, which was elected:? For President?General James Tallmadge. Vice Presidents?John VV. Gill, ot Ohio ; Dr. D. Btebbirii, ot Massachusetts ; H. Pitkin, ol Connecticut; G. W Mnrray.ofNewJeriey. Secretaries?James Harrison, Connecticut; Jacob C Parsons, New York. Messrs. Barbour, Smith, Gill, Conant and Danorili were api ointed the business committee. Ubnkkai. Tai.lmadge rose, and on taking the chair, thanked the meeting lor the honor they had conferred on him, and would use his best endeavors to so till the office as to render him worthy of the choice of his silk growing friends. He the proceeded to remark that this was the first national convention assembed in America to take intoconsideration the capability of the country for producing, and of our citizens for manufacturing silk, and had no doubt but great good would result from its labors He then proceeded to describe the process used in the several European countries to raise the silk worm. Everywhere artificial means were necessary except in this country. Natural facilities, in atmosphere, soil, and every other appliance, abound wiih us, and are solely and exclusively furnished by Providence to this country. All that is needed is the enterprise and industry of the people of the country to bring Silk into the list of American Staples, by acquiring the fullest knowledge of the means ol feeding the worms, and all the other facilities for the production of Silk- The end and aim of this Convention,* the Speaker insisted, is a kind which ought to recommend it to thelavor ot all American citizens. Instead of sending money out of the country, and for the purchase of what we can so easily make ourselves, and then bitting down, wondering where our circulating medium has gone, the General would advise his countrymen to euterinto this enterprise with vigor, to go to work like patriots, and to improve the advantages which God and Nature had put into their hands for the production of a new staple, and one that it was fully demonstrable, must eventually turn out a rich source of national wealth. The Business Committee then presented a great number of letters from persons engaged in the silk business, from a large majority of the States in the Union, containing a host ot very instructive and valuable facts, based on the experience and obaerva tion of the writers in the prosecution of the work. A communication trom a large New England Con vention, recently held at Northampton in Massachusetts, tending to produce the same impressions on the public mind, was also read by the first Vice President. Thtre had been no failures in any of the attempts that had been made throughout the iand, to cultivate the worm and make the silk The General, then, in the name and on behalf of the Institute, invited the Convention to visit the fair, and accordingly the Convention adjourned to meet again at half past (our. aftkrhi'ON cession.? j. he members ot >ne convention met at half past four, and after some bye conversation, President Tallmadge called the meeting to order, and presented to them Dr. Glebbins of Massachusetts, a pioneer in this important bianch of American industry, who gave a very interesting report of the history of two cocoons, the one grown by a hir~d laborer, and the other by a family, at so much per pound. The laborer had everything ready to nis hand, nothing wanting to feed the worm or protect it in its growth, while the family had to procure the mulberry leaves from a distance, yet the difference between the hired and the voluntary labor was astonishing. The first was lull and heavy, while the other was poor and light, scarce half the size. He then made some valuable sugg'stions on the feeding of the worms, the state of the leaves, recommending young shoots in the room 01 old leaves, which are not healthy for the worms. The manufacture of paper from the leaves of the Multicaulis, was a subject o! infinite interest to the country, and a specimen was exhibited which had been submitted to the press and pen to test its fitness as an article for general use. The pajier was not of a first re.te quality, but it possessed firmness and wearing capability, which must render it an important object in papers intended for deeds, lawyers records, state documents, (fee , recommending partially dried in the room ol the fresh or green leaves. His remarks are highly interesting, but we have not room to give them at length. The committee of business next reported a series of resolutions, which were carried unanimously, and which we may give in our future reports of the Convention. The object of the resolutions was tt show the feasibility of growing the silk, and the ex l>ediency of adopting such measures as would brin& the subject properly before the community and th( several State Legislatures and Congress, some in teresting information wa3 given by the President atto the manner 111 which our French Importers get over the tariff, which imposes a duty of SO cents on the ailk in the gum, and $2 on the manufactured silk. It appears our not over scrupulous French friends reel the silk from the cocoon, without subjecting it to the cleansing operation of warm water, and in this way twist it as sewing silk, and thus ii enters our market at only 50 cents duty instead ot $2,as was intended by the Tariff. Much information of importance was elicited from the members, and at half past six o'clock, P. M., the committee adjourned to meet again to-day, at half past ten A the rooms of the Institute in the Park. The Garden in the evening was thronged with visitors?and at half jiast seven, agreeable to previous arrangement, lieneral Tallmadge introduced the speaker of the evening, Mr. Barbour{ of Mas sachusetts. a staunch and sterling New Enelander ami silk grower, who thus acTdretsed the visitors :? Ladim and Uentlkhkn?Without apology or word ol introduction, I will proceed to the task aligned me, an<l enduavored, truthfully and faithfully, to transier to your minds the well Hssured fact which exists in my own, namely, the feasibility of the cultureof silk in America, (cheer*). Yei, we cun m.ike silk in this country, as su perior and as durante as any ever imported The word fail ii unknown to the (ilk grower of 184J. Can we make ailk 1 Yea, we have an indisputable answer in what ha? been done ; it ii a fact well authenticated. Nor ia it ol late date. In the early settlement of the American continent, even beyond onw hundred years "gone, silk was cultivated in Oeorgia, Virginia. South Carolina, and in Pennsylvania previous to the revolution, it was an item of no inconsiderable importance in the products of that St?te. Men, whose memories are like landmarks in our nation's history, have foretold the history ol this branch of nat onal wealth. The tar-seeing Dr. Franklin, and Dr. Stiles, President of Yale College, entered into the ailk question with heart and soul?and now it had perchance grown to a mighty growth, bad not the tone of public feeling, the startling events, and the glorious issue of the events of their day .completely overshadowed the culture of the silk worm. A nation rocked in the cradle ol free dam, was not fully prepared to take up so thoroughly the less important subject of the ailk worm. To perfect their institutions, 'o erect a more glorious monument to the triumph of mankiud in the struggle for freedom, was the more immediate object, and this wai in devising equaljta"'11! wise regulations, and establishing a name lor the Republic ol the United Slates, which should command therespuct, the homage of kingdoms whose existence ha 1 been marked by centuries. (Cheers ) When the young Republic reared its infant head among nations, manufactures were not palatable to our citizens. Agii oulture was the favorite, the sturdy Yeoman, having so successfully wielded the sword to clear the foeman fioni his native soil, now preferred to wield the ase to clear his native forests, that food and raiment might be pi. , vided for his children. Hence we were entirely depend, ant on the old world for our commerce. The feeble struggle of our manufactures was ill repaid until the tariff ol 1819 gave a new impulse, a new spirit to the droo| ing spirits of the manufacturers First, cotton goods, next woollens, partook ol the snirit of the age, and agri culture and commerce lent a willing hand to foster their younger sifter. (Cheeis.) The silk convention of lujfl; the provision* of Congress, and ot the different State Legislations from that period, gave assistance to the culture of silk, but the bold effort has been made within the lsst year or two. The young adventurer whoscarce daipit to wot his ancle, has now become a bold swimmer, and dashes aside the opposing waves, confident of his power (Cheers.) Yes, one fact is established beyond cavil or dispute, that we can raise silk and manufacture it too. (Cheers.) Yea, ye who doubt, and ye who believe, go to the wing of the garden in which the pro Itirts of the various coroonries are de poMtPcl, and Ultra examine for yonraelvei.

New Jersey Election.?The Democrats have gained New Jersey. The Newark Adv< ruser, the editor of which was a candidate for Congress, ou the Whig ticket, writes thus:? New Jersey Surrendered.?The coalition formed in this city between a taction of a whig party here and the leaders of the locofocos has worked out its legitimate reeults, and thrown the State into tne hands of our political adversaries. It has not only elected its candidates fw Congress in this district, but defeated the whig legislative tickets in two of its three whig counties, and as our friends believe, and as sdiiii ol whom predicted in advance, by its remote consequences effected a calamitous revolution in two udjoining whig counties. It is the triumph of locolocoism. The Democrats have a majority of fourteen ou joint ballot of the two branches of the State Legislature, so far a3 heard (f rom. Last year the Whigs had a m?jorty in bcth Houses. The following table, though still imperfect, will show where the changes have been effected:? Tahtik* in the Leuislsture. Latt Year.

Yes, my heart swells while I point you to these noble eltorts of eur common countrymen. Never did I leel the proud b.mst of an American citizen as at this moment, when within the sound ol my voice I can point out to my fellow citizens the onward progress of our glorious Republic. (Loud and continued cheers.) Yes, those cheers delight my old New England heart. I glory in the enthusiasm which bursts around me to-night, and ascribe its sincerity to the great topic of the day-Our country's glorious ei.l?ition! (Loud cries, cheers, and shouts of go on, New England, go en.) In my recollection ourcountry women had to pay from 36 to 40 c?uts per yard for coarse sleezy cottons, which now vnu could not palm on them even as a gift. No; they would rather consign them to the paper mill than weur'them, even for adav. (Loud checrs.^ And what litlio . i Why we are now shipping cotton g?ols to the countries beyond the broad Atlantic. (Cheers.) In England, France, China, and in Aria, the products of our looms ai t' found. (Yet, and our dairies, loo ) True, therheeseof New England is foHud on the table of the old English Squire; but this ii (net the time to d wall on such matters. Havw we overcome the prejudice, the common objections raised in our iron and woollon, and our dairy products? We have, ain^an now add to them the culture of silk. If we have no fear in cottons of cheap labor, why should we have any in silk. In Europe labor is not united with intelligence? in America intelligence is united to labor; and in this lies all the difference. (Cheers.) But the in Jonutable spirit of the Anglo Saxon character, is more fully developed under our ciTil and religious institutions (Cheers ) We stand on this ground with a character equal to the hest, superior to most, in tho culture of silk; Our soil is virgin,our sky is blue, and our people are Protestant. (Loud cheers ) Labor is valuable, not from what it costs, but from what it produce*. Our countrymen are intelligent, thinking, working people, and who are our competitor*! Go to European and Asiatic countries for your answer. (Cheers.) A Protestant community will i ver be an active, improving, elevating community. (Cheers ) England may compete with us in the manufacture of silk, but she can never grow a pound. (Loud cheers) We! We! are the only Protestant nation on the face of the globe, which are at the same time, a grow ing and a manufacturing nation. (Loud chcers.) But I find 1 have gone beyond my allotted time. (No, no, go on, go on.) I have one or two observations, and then I have finished. The lilk growers have much more to contend with than is generally imagined. It cannot progress to fast 8s other products. We require the growth of the foliage, and it takes two or three yea<-sto bring this to perfection. Silk culture is equal to fruit growing?we must plant the trea and await its budding time?the farmer spreads hit seed with Mowing hand and an autum's sun returns to his granary the fruits of his labor ; but we must patiently aDide our time. In public sentiment that time has arrived, the newspaper prets has done cracking itsjoket, and turn where you will, north, south, east or west, the independent and Political Presses are jealous advocates ot the silk growers. (Loud cheert) Ono fact I wish to mention before I finish my observations. It is that we have established beyond all controversy, that the silk worm can be brought to maturity in the open shed, under the pure, unadulterated air of our land. (Cheers ) From every quarter of the Union we have letters on this subject, from Arkansas, Mississippi, Wisconsin, Ohio, Tennessee, Kentucky, Vermont, Massachusetts. Khode Island, and even from tlie northern boundary of Maine ! (Cheert.; Thus you perceive we are cultivating this valuable material thrcughout the Union; wherever the corn grows, there we can grow the silk. I have on my body a vest and handkerchief of silk grown and manufactured in the green slopes of Ohio; (cheers) but my good mother ofUn told me never to be proud of what I might wear, if it should happen to; have better than wnat other folks wear. Yet I shall be happy to shake any Iriend by the hand, who will come forward, and ahow them what sort of a jacket I bring to this Convention. (Loud cheers and laughter.) Yet if you wish to see the perfection of our silk manufactures, go to the desk of Mr. Oill, and there you will sec much more than I can show you.? (Chetrs.) I have now dona. II I htrre afforded you a pleasant half hour, it I have given you an insight into the history and progress of the culture of silk, I have but performed the duty which placed me on this stand, and now let me bespeak your kind aid in the great cause in which we are engaged,let me ask you to overcome the blighting prejudices which would crush our enterprise, and which would mar in its infancy a project which is destined to give occupation to our countrymen, and to clothe millions of the generations which shall rise to bless us for our efforts in the cause of American nationality. (Loud cheers). A word before we part. Here 1 present tu your inspection a manuscript copy of a work on silk, written by the pen olthat good man. Dr. Stiles, 01 i air college. u is a iuii, nc-iauea account 01 tne culture of silk fiom 1703(3 1790, during which interval he was zealously engaged in philosophical experiments in feeding the silk worm. It is prepared with the utmost care,and belongs as a bequest to the Library of Yale College. It is exactly in the state in which the worthy Doc torleit it, bound with the very string which his own hands had tied, and surrounded with all the veneration which respect lor the honorrd dead can invest it. Here it is, (holding up an old, thick,marble covered volume, of letter paper size, bound with a green silk cord?a relique of days gone by. The audience evinced their respect in a general but suppressed buzz of welcome greeting) My lriends, I would pass it round, but it has been left in my charge, with sacrod orders to preserve it safe anil sound, and I cannot run auy risks with a volume so precious ; but if any of you desire to see it, come to my rooms, and there you shall have a lull and >ulficient examination of its contents. (Cheers, amid which the speaker took bis seat, the applause continuing lor several minutes.) Genxkai. Tali-madge then came forward and announced the several details lor the present nnd the coming week, which we set forth in our adver t sing columns. He informed the visiters lhat the bands from the navy and army departments would be in alternate attendance at the pardm throughout the ensuing davsol the exhibition. At 12 o'clock to-day Dr. Smith will deliver an address o.i the si^k question, arin an address on Agrieulmre and Commerce will be deiivertd by a member of the Institute at half past seven in the evening. He then proposed three cheers for the success of tree trade, and our free institutions, which were given with a hearty will, and alter a few turns through the several rooms, the audience left, highly pleased with the speaker, the arrangements and the worthy President. Philadelphia Election.?The Inquirer of yesterday morning says:? The cheering intelligence which we were able to spread before our readers yesterdHy, is fully confirmed by the official returns The whiga of Philadelphia city and county have achieved a moHt signal triumph. In the city we have elected our entire ticket?Mayor. Congress, Assembly and Council-, in the city and county we have elected our Sherifl, County Treasurer, County Commissioner and Auditor The majorities, loo, are noble. In the First District we have elected our candidate for Congress The Reform Commissioners' Ticket has succeeded in Southwark ; and in Moyamensing the whigs have elected six of the seven Commissioners. In the Northern Liberties, Spring Garden and Kensington, the locofeco Commissioners have succeeded. In the Third District, Mr. John T. Smith, Incofoco, is elected lo Congress ; and in the Fourth District, Mr. C. J Ingersoll, locofoco, is elected, both by comparatively small majorities. The results, on the whole, have astonished the whigs themselves, while our political opponents are utterly dismayed. VV> also, find the following paragraph relative to the State Congressional election:? As far as heard from in this State, the whigs have elected six members of Congress. Nibt.o's.?Signor Valtellini takes his benefit, and appears in his celebrated rnlt of Oroveso, in Bellini's nr ..n ,u? ?<- ?i.? vi ^viiiiu. v/i nu uic |'i i'uutiiuiid wi iiic Italians, the opera of Norma seems to carry off the palm. Signoras Majocchi and Corsini again are to enter the musical lists in the characters of Adalgisa and Norma The rivalry of these Prima Donnas is productive of the greatest delight to the audience. For five 'lights have they appeared in the opera, and each receive their encouraging share of public appreciation. If the female department of the Italian troupe could be as effectively brought to bear on other operas, they would command equal success with Norma. The Italian troupe must recollect that an establishment dependent U| on public approval, must bring tlnir entire force in mure than on* piece. __________ Chatham Thiatrk.?Mr. Rice, the great star of the day, this evening repeats his great character of Bone Squash, in an opera of that name, which is, by the way, one of the best ever composed, so far as the combination of scenery, music and incidents is eancerrie.t. The laughable farce of the Mummy is to be repeated, and the f-terlin/ drama of the Rent Day will be produced with a powerful cast. W< are pleased to notice that Mr. Deverna has, wiih his accustomed liberality, made such offers as to secure the services of Mr. Heilge, one of the most talented young artists the country can boast of. His talents are to be employed in the production of a series of new pieces which are now under way, snd will be produced in raj id succession. We believe now that every department of the Chatham corps itfilled wuh the first order of talent.

The Trenton State Gazette tells an amusing story, showing how a poor whig was kidnapped and carried off. " Richard Oirton, a poor, laboring man, who intended to vote thu whig ticket, w?? decoyed from the house ?t' his employer, Mr. Nathan Fish, of Ewing, an Monday evening, by three locofocos of the neighborhood, seised, thrown into wagon, und carried off. On Tuesday morning the whigs of Ewiug, in pursuit, found him at Yardley ville, locked up in a room. In the alternoon he was carried off further into Pennsylvania- We believe them never was perpetrated in this country such an outragu u|ion the rights ol a poor man. If be had been rich,th? locofocos would never have touched him. Wo hope it will be tried whether the laws ol the land will not protect poor men Irom such outrages." Thk National Jockey Club Racis?Washinoton, Wednesday.?Second Day.?The race which took place on Wednesday (the second day) between Clarion, Senator, Kate Harris, and Kendall's bay colt, was an unusually fine race, affording high diversion to all the votaries of the turf who w>re present. The contest lay between the three first named horses, but Clarion being the favorite, bets were made largely upon hiin against the field. When thu horses, however, appeared <>n the course, Senator became the favorite, and odds were given in his favor against any named horse. To the astonishment, however, of the knowing ones. Kate Harris won the first heat in three minutes and fortynine and a half seconds, Senator pushing her to the. winning post, Clarion being third, and the bay colt just saving his distance. Bets now ran largely 011 Kale Harris against the field. At the second heat the horses came up in tine style, Kate Harris taking the lead and retaining her position to the back stretch of the second mile; Clarion then made a brush at her and passed her, winning the heat by about a length and a half, in the unusually short time of three minutes and forty seven seconds. Kate Harris, the second in this heat, Senator third, the Bay Colt distanced. Betting again changed, and Cl irion was the favurite against the field He took the lead in the third heat and kept it to the end, Kate Harris second, and Senator third. We understand that Clarion, the winner of this well contested and excellent race, is half brother of the famous racer Fashion, that is to con tend on Friday with Blue Dick and other celebrated racers. The race course was more numerously attended to-day, and those sportsmen who were present had a most gratifying day of it.
