NEW YORK HERALD. !lm York Friday. I)frniib?r 1, lt?43. (tprnlng of I ungit'ti?Hrrddtni'i Mt-aMtge Kortlgn H^UUmi*. Co.?grew o;>f as next Monday. This session will h" i> i-' it ireat im,H)n itiee in several points of > i w, botli as reap ct.? our domestic and- forcigi tl .irs. There hujt be a great deal of trouble in i.i organization of the House?the election of >,> aker?and other matters; and, after all that !' is b?en settled, we expect to see Congress launchin,* out into interminable discussions on a variety ol I'uMi:' question^?the Tariff?Post Office Reform ( --above all, the interesting and exciting lojiit;in copi ction with out foreign relations, the annexation ol Fexfii, and also the posKeswioii <>f ilie Oregon 1 erritory. all preiieiit subjects of keen and pro- I traded debate. Til President's Message has, no doubt, been j?r vtreti hv this time; and, in the ordinary course of evjnu, will reach thu city during the next week. It m\y, however, be delayed longer than we now anticipate. Oi it* contents there are many surtaii'-j. There can He little doubrthat it will, at all ev.-ats, contain a very pointed und pregnant allusion to tlie present state of our foreign relations, t. irticularlV witjj <!reat Britain, Texas and Mexico. T i proposition to annex Texas to this country, I vill, unquestionably, be alluded to in some way.' Whether the assumption of the |K>ssession of ilir > 1 re. >n territory will be recommended, we have! 110 ine.uw ut present of ascertaining, but should j ; -ther doubt it, as it is more likely that the Ptesi' t will l.MVe that mutter untouched, and allow to be introducod to Congress by some of the | i-i tubers who formerly took the trouble of doing j > >. la relation to Texas and our foreign relations * ? itii England, there is every reason to believe thai | the President will take very strong, broad and comprehensive ground, so as to place himself in the * am position occupied by Mr. Monroe .in his fa- j mo'is message, declaring that this country \ would set it? face against nil attempts of tlv EaglUh government to interfere with our nti'iirs by iutriguing. or any projects of colonization. We ha\e already, on former occasions, mentioned a number of facts in relation to th T-x in question, and it may not be amiss to reeapitilite briefly what we have been able, on the most nndotibteJ authority, to stat" on this subject, j We understand that during last summer, a private j diplomatic agent, a-J is frequently the case with the i a. - 1 i. ii; i-.i fjj* ruiiieai, vai. sent t?y our government ! tn London, in order to sound tlie disposition of the j British cabinet in relation to the formation of a j ne v and1 comprehensive commercial treaty with th L'aitcd States. It probably was a knowledge of, this movement which led Mr. Webster to deli\er his various speeches, beginning w ith that at Balti- j man- and cudtng ut Andover. In the progress, j however, of these preliminary proceedings towards j th-j opening of negotiations between the two governments, it was found that Mr. Everett, our rep- j r ltitive at the Court of St. James, was entirely unfit for hi- position?not but that he is a very in- I ,t :llij nt, talented and accomplished man, butpicre j of a scholir, of a literary mm merely, than a t acini in, philosopher, a man of the w orld. Thus t ir, it ill events, he has discovered himself to be eitir ly useless in regard to the advancement of 11 ob'ects which this government had ri view ia despatching a confidential agent to Loniloi: hml indeed we are led to believe that Mr. Lv rett absolutely threw obstacles in the way of 11 i.vr>mp.ishm"nt of the design. Weknowfrom t v h-st ct* authority th it a number of interviews 1 w ;r: obtained in relation to this important matter, j with v irions members of the British government, < nnl that at one time it had almost determin- ' t j to despatch a special commission to this J i ou ury tar thi* purpose of opening negotu tioni. Daring the progress of this business it j se.- ns that certain abolitionists from this coun- 1 try, and others from Texas, made their ?p- . p'arance in London, and supported by the violent i! inntiita .1.-. "L* ?J:- -- ? ^ ' WW VVIIU(WUU ?mi lUC i*as" uiui'd UllCITBl n K lgland, approached the government, and spread ' be) 're plans lor the abolition of slavery in T< ' :> *, with the view of an indireo* movement in ! >nuthern States of this Union. The tirwt public in iir iiion of the existence and prosresa of these , nv a - proceedings, was ni ule in parliament on the iar;i> u debate during which Lord Aberdeen de- j clarcd hia intention to do all he could for the abo- . linen of slavery in Tfxm in which lie to joined Ly Lord liroughant and others, members of the government. On these intrigue* and private negotiations by the enemies of the foutk and of the j Union gent rally, being niaa'e known to the Presi- 1 rent, we believo he at oner determined to take -u.'ii high and indignant ground, u has been hint d lur some weeks post. There are, indeed, in Kngl-vnd, many influential men connected with the manufacturing and eommerciaJ interest who begin to e itertain fiiendly and favorable feelings towards th^ United States, and who would willingly relax their commercial restrictions, rescind or modify their common laws, and enter into arrangements which would prove materially ao vantageous. But ttii-, interest is at present overpowered by the combined influence of the abolition fanatics and the gr at East lu'dia interests, so that there is very lit* j tie probability o.' 11 liberal anil advantageous commercial treaty for a I?nR time to come. Proceedin? then, from this the Pr.^sio'ent takes such grouui in relation to th<* relations *>t the United !?t:ue? and Great Britain as Monror .took in a former day; and the announcement of which will create a great sensation in Europe, art d probably 110 smill excitement here. How the Honse of Representatives an d Senate may receive this is very doubtful. But in relation to t!i 3 Oregon Territory, a very different Mate of tlun.zs exists. It will be recollected that tiie bill tor taking possession paused th? Senate, anJ. by mere accident, wds lost in the Houset This question interests the we6t, und >a very popular thwe, and it is not nnlikely that some union between il .. .1 ihe south, so as to embrace the Texas question, be in id", and thus both MOMTMbe carried. , In th it event. we would be placed in a very cnti- < cal position with reflect to England and other foreiin powers?almost, indeed, directly in a warlike attitude. A'l these movements, however, whatever may be the result, have l?een brought about by the negligence of the English government, or their igno- , r mce of the institutions of this country, rather ' bmii cause- combined, and aided by the infv.l?ecility J of Mr. Everett and the ridiculous notions ^'hich ? prevail in England relative to the institution* J v i* *rv in the south All these points gi\e to th*. i ' l're^iJent's Mr?ige and the action ot the next 1 Con/i-t-s peculiar interest and importance.

J Movements of lttt American Krpublican Parly. ? Third Want. Tl*re waa a glorious muster on Wednesday evening, in this ward, at the Croton Fount, No. 215 Greenwich street. After some prelim.Uury proceeding!-, Mr. Cook, of the Fourth ; Ward, being called for, made his appearance, and favored his friends with u couple ol pai triotic songs. The Hon. M<jsls H. Gkinell, was then introduced to the meeting by the President. Mr. (?., after the cheering with which he was welcomed had subsided, addressed the meeting, as follows:? Oentlemen?1 hare not come amongst you thin evening for the purpose r>f taking any part in your proceedings ; but I have come here tilled w ith that spirit winch is really and truly American. Icame not here to propose any thiiigg whatever; but solar us 1 understand the constitution ol this Association, it has my molt cordial approbation. (Cheers ) I came here because 1 ftad both wings and democrats?(Cheers.)?I came here, bccausel find something aUfve mere party consideration. (Loud cheers ) 1 came here to see and to carry out the great principles w hieh > ou have engaged to carry out; and if in the heat of my expressions, 1 should bear too strongly either ujkjii the wuigs or the democrats, 1 trust they will forgive me (Cheers ) What I say comes warm lrom the heart, and what 1 do say, 1 am ready to stand by and go for \ou have sat up a principle that stands above party intrigue, therefore let us go on and stand by these principles, without being influenced by' the principle* of either of the two great contending parties.? if you only remaiu firm to your present principles, in the end, you must be victorious, (loud cheers.) And when the spring election comes, and calls upon you to perform your duty in the selection of a candidate--let the iiuestion'be?Is he capable' Is he faithful to the laws of the landf Is he an American J (a voice-that's it.) Take those individuals to represent you?that will stand before the scorn of either party?whether in public or private life. No matter how humble lie may be, if he is only capable?if he is only faithful. (Cheers ) All that I tear in this matter is, that some, if not most ol us, may incline to one or the other of the two great factions; and thereby create u division Gentlemen, keep cluar of them? let this be a battle of merit and merit only. Redeem this city from the hands in w hich it is now placed, and put it into the hands ol individuals, who are A mci icans by birth and Americans in principle. With .egard to foreigners, I have no prejudice against them, God knows. I w ould be ever ready to open my pocket in their behalf; but when it comes to the question of holding an office of honor or trust, there I must place my veto?(tremendous applause.) Ves, I cay, that 1 would ever open our hands to receive foreigner* from every soil.and when thus receiving them, I would have them remember that the soil is our*? (cheers) Mr President, 1 did not intend to say half as much as 1 have done ; but before 1 conclude my remarks, let me say, that as far as 1 can be of any service, in advancing the princiules of this nurtv.I shall most cheeifullv do my part. 1 came heir to work for your cause? (great applause) I would, however, say, beware, beware of treachery; for there ait'those belonging to either of the two great parties, w ho would endeavor to upset your principles Again and again, let it be echoed throughout your i ranks. 1 say lieu are, lest \ on he deceived, and that too, by those w ho profess to be your friends. I name it, not !>ecauae 1 could put in) linger nnouany such individuals Let the only question with you oe, a thorough change in your city government. Let the Presidential question alone. It has nothing to do. at present, with your principles. I shall then exercise my right, ond you may exercise yours. The ('residential question has' nothing to do with this important principle; confine yourselves to the great cause in which you have embarked, and success will inevitably crown your efforts. And it is beyond a question, that' when spring comes round, and you ha\ e selected capable, faithful and true Americans to* represent your inteiests. I shall give my vote for those men. Mr lirinnell then retired amidst deafening apapplause, and the meeting shortly afterwards adjourned. Fourth Ward. The American Republicans of the Fourth Ward assembled in all their glory last evening at the Shakespeare Hotel. The president, Joseph Hufty, Esq , having called the meeting to order, the minutes of last meeting, together with the constitution and by laws of the Fourth Ward Association were read and accepted. A committee of three , geutlemen were then appointed to drufl a series of resolutions which should express the sentiments of the meeting, and that Francis P. Furnald, Mr. Dingley, and Alfred Brewer, form that committee. Mr. Steward being introduced to the meeting, made a brief aud spirited address. _ Mr. Cook was then requested to favor the meeting with u song. \lr. C. after apologizing for being so green in the lusiness of singing in public, it being only the se;ond time thut he had appeared in a public meeting, snng his " Brother Jonothan," which was well received. A gentleman from Albany next addressed ..IV x.iuiig, .mil ?as U'liunru uy J ll lio mills, A'ttooe remarks drew forth continued hursts of a|>>lause. The committee appointed to draft resolulions expressing the sense of the meeting, presented the same, which were redd and unanimously idonted. Mi. X>e La Ree, being loudly called for?sung wo of his new and popular songs, which were received with the usual applause. The President next introduced to the meeting, Mr. Kalph, of Brooklyn, who addre*cd the meeting at considerable length in reference to the principle)* of the American Party and their present fl ittering prospects. He concluded amidst Ions continued cheer*. Mr. Cadwell, in compliance with a eall. fnvored the meeting with a song, " The American Star," not. however, without making considerable apology for his unfitness for the task. Jt may be here pro|>er to state, that in consequence ol the lateness of the hour, at which the meeting adjourned, we find it impossible to do any thin# like justice to the gentlemen who addressed this truly enthusiastic gathering. Klgbth Ward. The young, but strong and sturdy American Republicans, assembled last evening full fifteen hundred strong, at the immense hall of the Tivoli Saloon, corner of Varick and Charlton streets. The venerable Dr. Covei., was called to the chair, and George Yoi~ng, as his assistant. John M. De Groot and Henry B. Waumaker, were appointed secretaries. The meeting was then addressed by Messrs. Fenn and Woodruff, two popular shakers of the party, when the latter inuoduced Mr. Green of Indiana, who spoke as follows:? Mr rhairman and gentlemrn?Although I am not now a resident of your oily, yet I am a resident of the I'nited States, and in any thing that interests you at a l?dy also creates interest w ith me as an American. (Applause ) I believe a new era has dawned upon this nation, and that the time ha* now arrived when party Taction and foreign influence are both to be buried in one grave together. (Applause ) For a long time both parties have l>een to blame on this iubject?both have coaxed, wheedled and succumbed to the influence of adopted citizens, in order to make weight for their candidates, and thus have so tilled, so elated, and so bloated these men with an idea of their own importance, that in the end they have attempted to rule instead of aid in the rule of our "government. In the city of Cincinnati, this evil has recently grown no great, that no inan can tie elected there to any office unless Tie is either foreign !>oru or willing to truckle and bend fo the wishes of those who claim that birth. (Shame.) It docs my heart good, therefore to see a party organizing here to put down this influence, and'tench these men llkeir proper places as citizens and adopted Americans. (Loud applause) It makes mc feel ni though the time had arrived when I could say America i* till in tihe hands of her native sons, ami controlled by an American party. (Applause) It makes me feel as though I should soon see the branches of this party extended throughout the whole country, from north to south, from i*ast to Oie very Hoosiur State that I come from, (applause) carrying every thing before it, like the flood that swept loreign .influence fmm our land on the close of the revolution (< ?reat applause.) Yes, gentlemen, we hive intelligence ?uough among ourselves?virtue enough, honesty eiiough and to spare, without the aid of the subjects of 1 any Kuro/iean power to guide us. When (ien. Jackson I passed through this city some years since, I was here, and I then isw evidences that satisfied my mind of the lack j >f intelligence that often times make* itself evident among >ur adopted population. Among a crowd of some four i lundred Irishmen,all of whom were armed with shillelahi, s-as one great, stout, big-flsted fellow, who as I paasedhivi, favea pounce and a jump some fix feat into the air, and, :oming down, mashed his stick upon the pavement and ihouted at the top of hi* voice, " Hurra, hurra, three :heers for king Jackson, the hero of Waterloo.'1 Here su a specimen of this man's intelligence, as he did not mow,from his expression, whether we had elected old 'ickory as President on made him king?(laughter and ' lause)?and such men are to be put up as the ruler* of ublic officer*. and we must all truckle to them to ob;tjn eir votes and influence.

A letter from Thomas Phenix, lute District Attorney of thiscity, was read, in which he avowed his attachment to the principles of the party, hut declined addressing the meeting on account of im- [ portant business. Here followed loud cries for "Hopper," "Whitney," "He La Ree," and other*, when Mr. Whitney came forward and made a few remarks, which were followed with some excellent patriotic singing, and the meeting adjourned with some enthusiastic cheers for reform in the city government, and success to the Young Babe of America.

He was in the habit of reciting some piece's of his own composition, nnd one of them he (Mr. C.) would beg to give as a substitute for a speech. Mr. Golden then recited with great feeling, and most im nected with "wife, children, and friends," whose quaint but impassioned tone and tvle, made a deep impression on the w holo company. This recitation was indeed the gem of the evening, and elicited enthusiastic applause. The next regular toast was?"Honest men and boiwie lasses." Draiilc with appropriate enthusiasm.

This w!as received with much applause, and drank with great enthusiasm. Mr. Kobert Choikey was then railed on for a song, and gave " The Bonnets Blue." This is eu admirable Scottish lyric, written by the late Rev. Or. Stewart, of Liverpool, and as sung by Mr. f roakey, elicited tremendous applause. The Cmairma* then,after an eloquent tribute, and one as truthful as eloquent, to the virtues, patriotism, and integrity of the late I'residentof the Society, gave " The Memory of John Graham?an honest man, the noblest work of God"?drank in solemn silence. James Wr.THEtsroo*, Esq., after a few appropriate remarks. gave " The health of the Ex-President of the,Society." Hi'oh Maxwell, Esq., returned thanks. He alluded in a very happy manner to the description in the "Heart of Mid Lothian," of the interesting interview between the Duke of Argyle and Jeanie Deans. The sisterly love and devotion of that heroine in humble life, were mauiiested with such thrilling effect, that the Duke replied, "My heart must ever warm to the tartan."

Mr. VVki hkrspoon then xang in fine style, "Take your auld cloak about ye," which was received with much applause. Dr. A. C.

Dr. J. A. Hoi'ston gave?"The daughters of Kve?our arms their defence ; their arms our reward." (Drank with great applause.) A number of other sentiments were given? many excellent songs sang?and the festivities kepi up with the greatest spirit to a late hour. Great credit is due to Mr. Wetherspoon and the other stewards for the admirable manner in which the entertainment was got up. It was, indeed, an occasion of great enjoymentj and proved that the Sons of St. Andrew, inSTew lork, know well how to create and relish the pleasures of the festal board. Progressof Irish Kei'ealin the United States. ?The movements of the Repealere in this country are singular enough. Ia Philadelphia there are two associations, who are <juite at loggerheads. In Boston one portion has gone over to the abolitionists,in obedience to (he mandate of his Holiness the Pope ind Dan O'Connell. In other parts of the countrv the same divisions and differences have occurred In this city terrible efforts have been made to prevent any open rupture. It must soon come, however, as some of the Repealers are beginning to look very savagely on the movements of the new part) lust stalled into existence here?the American Republicans. In the case of a conflict in that quarter, however, the Repealers would be completely annihilated. In the South there is but one sentiment? that of universal indignation and detestation against the officious interference with our institutions, on the pari of the Pope and Daniel O'Connell, his fugleman in Ireland, which will burst ont one of these days with tremendous violence. We believe thai this Hull of the Pope and O'Connell's insulting letters und addresses, will inflict more serious injury on the progress of Catholicity, and the peace and comfort of the Irish people than any thing which hat ever taken place since our Independence was declared. Movement of tile Aboi.itiomsts ?A gentleman named Maybin has declined the appointment ol agent for Massachusetts, to look out for the interests of her colored citizens arrested in New Orleant without any charge of crime.

He hns been visited by nearly I half a million of persons in America, and has been feted by many families of the first distinction. He is so graceful, so pert, so intelligent, and withal, so wonderfully diminutive, that all who see him are charmed with him at once, and his visits to all our ; cities have necessarily been so many sisnal triumphs. He will undoubtedly visit Queen Victoria unn be received with marked attention by all the nobility of Europe. He intends visiting Paris, Edinburgh, &c. before his return, ann particularly Dublin, where he means to challenge O'Cnnnell, ! and do justice to Ireland. He will also call upon the Queen at Buckingham Palace.

He soon goes south. We doubt whether his tour will prove as successful as he anticipates. The rage for music seems to swallow up every thing. Forrest, Wallack, and all of the great acj tors of the legitimate drama, except Macready, are unable to collect a decent house. Ginti Damoreau, and Artot, have gone to Philadelphia, from thence they go south. The Chatham, Olympic, and Niblo's Equestrian troupe, are doing well. The Bowery continues to retrograde. Theatricals ave somewhat reviving as business improves. But the tiste for music grows rapidly, and no doubt we shajlsoon have a good opera here. The season for it is ripening. It is rumored that a new theatre will speedily be erected on the site at present occupied by Washington Hall. It is to be under the auspices of Mr. Wallack, and would undoubtedly entirely remove the sceptre from the Park.

The reason of their non-success throughout the Union is obvious, viz: the insufficiency of the Company and the entertainment oftered the public ; and ' without a re-organization they will never obtain success. In the first place, the female department must be strengthened, and another bass added who can give opera buffo, so that buffo and seria may be presented alternately to the public. For opera buffo, we have De Begnis, the favorite buffo at the Italian opera in London; and as prima donnas Mrs. Sutton and Castellan. Let De Hegnis take the management of the opera buffo, and Signor Valtellina the opera seria, and with such a cast the opera will be equal if not superior to any Italian trou|>t> that has been in New York. We hear that Palmo's Theatre will be finished by the first of January, and that it will ! be arranged expressly for operas. Does Mr Palmo intend to open with the Company now at Philadelphia! If so, he may rest assured of the greatest failure that has ever taken place in the theatrical way in New York. Let him look i about him in time, and make such arrangements, through some one accustomed to management, that will combine the whole talent now in New York to give a series of operas, bufto and seria, which will be a species of musical tournament in which each rtiar will Kfriv>> fnr Hiirwrinritv.

Ot>- Since our last rej>ort, Senator Tallmadge, of this Stair, and Representatives Uellett oi Alabama, Dean ot Ohio, and Jenks and M'Uvaine of aylvania have arrived at Washington. Wnatilngton [Corretpondence of the Herald.] Washington, Nov. 28, 1813. A quorum of the House is almobt already u[>on the ground, and the members of both branches continue to Hock in with every train. The whole rei?reyentation from the West is nearly collected; the experience of past years and the present favorable season, being sufficient inducements for an early and safe journey. Unusual iuterest is manifested in the election* of the Speaker, Clerk and Printer to the House. Mr. Wilkina, ofPennsylvania, has been here tor a weeK, ami is now tn<* most popular and lending candidate. II"the Democrats refuse to go into caucus, which the Buchanan and Calhoun sections insist upon, then Mr. W. will probably be the Speaker of the next Congress. In reference to the result of this whole struggle, a great deal will depend upon the informal organization. The Van Buren strength in the House is rising 80 votes, which is a majority of the other divisions of the party, and in caucus would necessarily secure every nomination. The friends of other candidates decline to adopt this system and wish to submit their men to the house proper for its suffrages. This upsets the entire practice of party machinery, and eventually places the selection in the hands of the Whigs. That is the choice between the rival aspirants in the Democracy. If the competing interests are firm in their adherence to their resoective nominations, the Whig party will have the power of effecting a triumph for either division it may momentarily coalesce with. Heretofore, the usage has been for the whigs, when as now, in a minority, to name their own man, and sustain him throughout. There are manv reasons .whv a different course will he adopted at the present tune, and why their votes will he used in a direction most likely to avoid their interests in the future. A compromise may be finally effected between the officers of Speaker and Clerk. Mr. Harris, a Van Uuren man, is umong the most prominent candidates for the last office, and it is thought the difficulties will be adjusted by the selection of Mr. Wilkins and Mr. Harris. The elevation of Mr. Wilkins will, undoubtedly, be a most unpleasant blow to a particular interest of the democracy, and out of it may spring the elements of a powerful combination against Mr. Van Buren, at tne Baltimore Convention ; in fact, such apprehensions as these give the main interest to thejpresent canvass. It is not fair, however, to spread out wild inferences, predicated upon events yet uncertain to happen. I shall, therefore, leave this matter for a uturelday. The "Printing" question assumes a serious and imposing aspect, such as the candidates at the seat of government had little anticipated. The impression has been made upon prominent and able members of the party, that the Globe has had a full share of its profits and perquisites, and that the time has come when others, equally meritorious, should receive some consideration at their hands, to this end. Mr. Bryant, of the Evening Post, has Seen induced to become a competitor, and from the present indications, his chances of success are in every way flattering. The Calhoun interest will start the Spec tator, wnicn must De aDanaoneu aner ine second or third ballut, and the contest inevitably settle down between Bryant and Blair <te Rives. No other issue will then be presented to the House, but a choice between men. which will leave all parties open to their own preferences. There is Very good reason to supfosetne Globe will be defeated; the capital of opposition invested at the outset, was of itself threatening, viz.: thirty-four Calhoun and eleven Buchanan votes. Add "to this more than half the delegation from New York, the whole delegation from New Jersey, the distrust and dissatisfaction which the late course of the Globe has engendered, and the elements of antagonism are visible as thev now stand at Washington; besides which, Blair ifc R ives are rich, which is a strong argument in favor of some new man. From present appearances, it is exceedingly doubtful, on what day the message will be delivered.? The organization will create unusual delay and difficulty, and 1 much fear whether the House will be in order for Executive communication before Wednesday. Circumstances, of course, may bring about j a different result. The President who has been indisposed for several days, is now convalescent Mr. Robert Tyler will leave Washington in March, to reside in Philadelphia, as a practising lawyer. He has all the elements of a popular advocate, and will, no doubt, be successful. Philadelphia. [Correspondence of the Henld.l Philadelphia, Nov. 29, 10 o'clock > Wednesday evening. $ Jambs g. Bennett, Esq.:? Dear Sir,? Captain Stockton's superb pilot line of railroad cars were crowded to-day with members of Con. gress, and others who are hastening on to Washington. Not a few of them stop here in Philadelphia to-night, at your friend Kay's United States ilotel, which, for aught I see, is as glorious now as it was when honor< d with the presence of the President of the United States. Mr. Raygives a magnificent dinner to-morrow to the St. Andrew's Society of this city?it will be in Mr. Ray's best style. There is but little news stirring nere. I have just met with several of the individuals who figured more or less at the notorious Mercer trial, last 9)>ring, and your readers will doubtless be interested, as I myself was, in learning what are the present fortunes of the prominent acton and friends in that celebrated tragedy. What I shull now add, therefore, will be something like the concluding chapter of your fashionable novel, a quasi posthumous account of dramatis prrton<r. First and foremost, then. Singleton Mercer, the hero of the tragedy, is, and has been for some time past, doing business for himself in a commission tore in Water street in this city. I cannot ascertain that h? is doing much business. He made several attempts during the last summer to apoear in first society at the Brandywine Springs ana othsr fashionable watering places, but either on account of the prejudice existing in the city pro|>er against the inhabitants of Soutnwark. where Mr. Mercer resides, or from some other cause, he does not appear to have beon s sstul. The fact is, the quiet, sober thinking chu.i ns of Philadelphia do n?t heritsite to say that he was unjustly, though legally, acquitted by the authorities of New Jersey. And , it is proper to add here, on credible authority, that there is already a great leaction of public sentiment in New Jersey in relation to that trial. Miss Sarah Mercer lives in Queen street with her parents, who endeavor to keep her very closely within doors. She is little known, and leiw thought of. Iler father, as ever heretofore,continues to be highly esteemed and respected by all parlies, without distinction. I am tola the expenses of the trial cost him about $5000. Peter A. Browne, Esq., ihe master spirit of the defence, lives in retired ease and elegance, reposing upon the laurels he has won, dividing the timo between his lectures upon the < )regon question, the study 01 geology, nna various oilier scienunc pursuits. II'- htis not appeared upon any legal trial since. By his art and management alone, he moved the |K)pulace of New Jersey to acquit Singleton Mercer. James C. Van Dyke, Esq., who was the legal adviser of the unfortunate Heherton, and who reluctantly consented to appear as the leading witness for the prosecution, is quietly and diligently pursuing; the practice of the law in Walnut street. He is a young gentleman of superior talents, of high promise, and already with an extensive practice, which is rapidly increasing. In relation to politics, the whig* appear perfectly confident that Mr. Clay will be tne next President: the democrats arc equally confident that they will eL?et their candidate, and both these parties vie with each other in despising John Tyler. Mr. Buchanan appears to be the popular candidate for the Presidency throughout this Stats, although in ccrtain districts Van Buren may be preferred. Both parties here seem to think that Buchanan is the only enndidate who can successfully compete with Henry Clay; a very.natural and harmless prejudice. They rnwjnt with advantage occasionally take a telescopic look over into the State of New York.
