VERY LATE ATEWS FROM EUROPE! arrival op thk STEAMER HIBERNIA AT BOSTON. Twenty Hours in advaun of the U.S. Mail! The Steamer Hibernta, from Liverpool, with fifteen days later intelligence, arrived at Boston on Sunday afternoon. This steamer wa3 signalized at 2 o'clock P. M., and reached the wharf at Boston at half past 5 o'clock. Immediately after, the private and txrlu iim Express, arranged by our agents at Boston, started with the news, and reached our office, overland by /torses, at a quarter to 2 o'clock ye-ucr dty P M We went to work and issued an Extra, with the fullest accounts, including nn kets, ship news and pasHettg'-rs, which was sent exclusively by the southern and western mails yes terday afternoon it 2 o'clock, on - day in advance of the United States Mails There wis no other express run from Host on Yet several of our coteinporaries meanly affected to have the news, and to publish it after procuring it from our office clandestinely. The "Journal of Commerce" had some erroneous items of the cot ton market on their Bulletin, which we have reason to helievr was giv-n thetn by a cotton broker who received it from us under certain pledges that were violated The "Sun" published a meagre Extra, taken from our's, about an hour after we had flooded the city with tens of thousands?and they even ventured to say it was brought to their o Hce by private express, of which not one word was true. It had been expected that those immortals, Hamden (5c Co., would have run an Express to meet the steamer which left New Haven yesterday at noon, and reached here at fi o'clock in the afternoon But not an item of the news?not even by the mails?was received in this city yesterday, other than that brought by our private and exclusive ex press. Our news was principally taken from Willmerdc Smith's " European limes," the senior partner of which, Mr. Willr itnow in this country, where he deservesevery //egreeof courtesy and attention. "We had also Liv -rpool and London papers ol the latest dates. news will be found at great length in to-day's Herald and Supplement. This is probably the tenth beat which we have given the whole New York press during the present year? enough in all conscience. The news is interesting. Cotton has again fallen frotn one-eighth to one-quarter penny?th money market is easy?English stocks are declining ? American stocks are firm and looking up?O'Connell has not yet been sentenced, but he expects it for tertaiu?and the English newspapers, so far as we can perceive, are favorable to the annexation of Texas to the United States. The First Great Ci.ay Ratification Meeting i* JNkw t ork.?The first Tiny or whit? mass meeting, to ratify the acts of the Baltimore Convention, was held yesterday afternoon in the Park, but we were entirely disappointed in their numbers, en thusiasin, eloquence and orators. This meeting did not number many more than attended the Texas meeting on Saturday, although they were by far more decent, well dressed and respectable. From 4 to 6 o'clock there were varying from two to four thousand persons present, including Mike Walsh and a few butenders, who tried to make faces. Mr. Fillmore made a speech ?then there was a pause?then a call for Heraet Greeley, who came forward and gave them mort fresh greens. In fact, this Park Meeting seeinec. to be a convocation only of one small segment of the whig party?the Fourier segment. About six o'clock ihe meeting was suddenly dispersed by a violent tornado, or thunder gust, with rain in torrents, that rose up from New Jersey and passed over New York. Every ore fled for sh-lt r under the trees?under porticoes, and even into Tammany Hall. This is a curious coincidence, with a like dispensation of the black heavens which scattered the great meeting in Baltimore. In the evening, the whigs again asseinliled in dry jaekets at National Hall, and sung a few songs to cheer them up. It is evident, however, that the politicians, as yet, are the only persons moving iri the Presidential canvass. The great mass of the people of both parties are merely looking on They will not stir much till October. The Lite Texas Mketino.?The exaggerated estimate of the numbers who attended the meeting held in the Park on Saturday evening, on the subject of Texas, by a morning contemporary, lias so far* Deaden the hounds of decency and exaggeration, a.< to induce us to notice the actual amount who a tended on the occasion At no time during the meeting were ihere present over ?it,000 persons For a meeiing of citiz-ns New York, it was a shy, shabby atTur, in poii o mumbers, and not at all worthy of th* noble ol rets in view. Whether from deficiency in the ; vrangements?neglect on the part of the getters up of the meeting?or apath\ on the imrt of our ritiz^na. fhi* merino- woo o one. But it has Ueen urged that the evening (Saturday) was ill adapted tor convening the citizens of N"w York, who are on this day, invariably busted m their various callings; if so, why call together a meeting on such .in evening, and on surh a subject?the magnitu leand importance of which, in the pr sent crisis of affairs, arrest the grave and serious attention ol the nations of the Old and New World 1 The meeting adjourned nine dir. When the next meeting is convened, should it turn outsuchan affair as the one of Saturday, as a test of the public feeling of \ew York on the suh ject of the annexation of Texas, we shall look upon it as a fnilure. New York Historical Society.?At the stated meeting of this body, to be held this evening, at the Historical Rooms in the University, Dr J Beakley will read a paper on " The progress nt the Caucasian Race in Science and Civilization." The paper of Mr. Kd wards, entitled " Some passages in the Life of Gov. Tompkins," includ ng extracts fro/n his correspondence, is postponed nntil the meeting in June. Racks. ?

The Presidential Klrcllon ?A Mingle Tern [ The question ol the next Presidency is engagir the attention of all, and while the whigs are un : ted, enthusiastic, warm and zealous in carryir J into rflrct the arrangements made hy them i 1 1 Baltimore, the other party, the democracy, at I equally busy, but in an altogether diflerent way. 1 they are quarrelling, fighting, squabbling, discu sing and debating who will be their candidate, an what sort of measures they will adopt In regard ( I&TAM, Ilic: I aim, UIIU Ullirr 4UCDIIWUB. One ol the most important questions which itli'c< the Presidency, and which has made its appearanc I of late years, is that respecting the restriction < i presidential candidates to the one term principh i and their consequent ineligibility for re-electioi i It is well known in th" history of this countn that President Washington declined a re-electior and that it wag only ulter a great deal of persuasio that he consented to accept the office for a secon time, and then only in order to give charactei reputation, and permanence to the practical actio of the new government This precedent, how | ever, has haen the cause of all die re-election that we have s-en since that period. But of lat years, so many evils have grown up from the ai tempts of every President tousethe patronage in hi hands for the purpose of securing a re-election, I hi the practical good sense of the people has bee gradually bringing them to a conviction of the n< ces-suy of restricting the tenure ot the President office to a single term, although the greatest lat tude is given by the Constitution. The lirst election of General Jackson was i some measure attributable to the solemn declurt tion of his party that he would serve only one tern but after fins distinguished man reached the Whit House, a crowd of flatterers and corrupt politician got about him, and placed the country in such i position, that he was persuaded to stand lor a re election, which was carried in consequence of hi great personal popularity, and the peculiar ctists o affairs at that period. The principle thus assertei by the democratic party became a subject of grea inquiry amongst trietr opponents, me wmgs, am it is well known that at the Harrisburgh Oonven tion, when General Harris?n was nominated there was a general understanding that hi election le the Presidency was to be on! lor a single teun. We are gratified to per ceiv now that during the recent Whig Con vention at Baltimore, the whigs assembled tromal parts of the country, with great good sense am unanimity, have adopted distinctly and bold'y lb single term principle, so that they go into the fieh determined to do the best they can for Mr. Clay for one term only. The effect of such a aeif-sacri ficing, liberal and enlightened principle will, n< doubt, help the whig cause very much amongst a I considerate and reflecting men, and it is probabh that ihe practical abandonment of this principle b; the democratic party, or that portion of it at leas which affects to be favorable to Mr. Van Buren has been one great cause of the dissensions whicl now threaten their very existence. When th< whig9 come forward with such a dia'inguished can didate as Mr. C ay, and announce their so'emt adherence to the one term principle, it is ver naturally asked?why should Mr. Vun Buren, whi has already occupied the Presidential chair, am who has been defeated on presenting himself as i candidate the second time, now make another at tempt and invite another trial of strength 1 or, wh; should John Tyler, it is also asked, who has alsi had his single term by a fortunate concurrence o events, press for any re-nomination from any quat ter, in the face of the impulses of the America people to restrict the tenure of the presidency t one terml The conviction of the necessity for confining th term of the Presidency to one term, has obvioui ly been forced upon men's minds by the inultitnd of candidates, and particularly from the belief tin a purer administration of the government could b secured by removing all motives to the intrigue?th corruption?the chicanery?the abuse of patronag re-election. And all this is the sound and sobe results of experience. Look at the terrible defa cations?the gross delinquencies?the astound in corruption, which were presented in all their enoi 1 mity on the close of Mr. Van Buren's first tern 1 and which all owed their existence to the eflor' made by the office- holders and their adherents, t i force Mr. Van Buren upon the country and the dt mocraey, a second time in 1340. Look at the t diculous efforts and the very questionable act which have been recently developed in connectio with Mr. Tyler for the same purpose in this an other cities?to create a party in opposition to th '.treat impulses of the people, which are taking a dtogether different direction. From this r pid and comprehensive view of th movements of the ppoplc of this country in rein tion to the propriety and prudence of adherence ti 'he single term principle, it will be perceived thn the democratic party about to meet in Conventioi at Baltimore, will have the most substantial rea sons to set aside the claims of Mr. Van Buren ant Mr Tyler, without even a word of apology. Tie distinct and decided annunciation of the adoptioi by the whigs of the one term principle, forces itsel Use a flash of lightning upon the democratic pat rv. We will see on the meeting of that Conven tion on the 27th of this month, whether the dele gates from the people appreciate their position am ihe feeling of the country by the adoption of thi irinciple, which the whig party are bringing t bear against tllein in the ensiling election Exctiusios to the Rocky Mountains?Weun lerstand that Sir William Drumrnnnd Stewart, th celebrated traveller, has just returned from anothe excursion to the distant regions of the Rocky Mnui tains. He is now in this city on his way to Europr Onring the recent excursion, he has been traversin both sides of the Rocky Mountains for a period < nearly two years. He carried with him a large pa ty, amongst whom were botanists, naturalists an t'tists?some from Germany, and some Scotch ar English. He has made a very large and valuah collection of botanical productions, part of whic he shipped down the Columbia Rivpr for Engine ity the way of Cape Horn, and a part he has brougf here to carry with himself to Europe. First and last, Sir William has spent about te vears round about the Rocky Mountains, frave dug those wild regions which I e in the neighbo: hood of the branches of the Missouri and Colun tin Rivers, and encountering innumerable hai breadth escapes from the Indians. Perhaps no it dividual of the present age possesses so much pe sons I knowledge of these regions as S r Williun out if he would give a narrative of his adventure it would outstrip in romantic interest any thing y< given. Sir William is now 011 his way to Scotlan o his paternal residence, Murthly Castle, in Peril shire. Bi.ocit Printing in (lit. Coi.ors?Minsionar Enterprise.?

Commodore Htewtrt'i Position. mr House ok Kekkf^entativks, ) i. April 29th, 1W4. J Sir: You, in common with other distinguished citizens of our country, have been spoken of an a n candidate for the ollice of President of the United e States. _ An intelligent people, exercising the right of selecting their own chief magistrate, are entitled to 8' know the opinions of those whom they select as id their candidates, upon lite leading questions that :o agitate the public mind. The question of the annexation of Texas to this i uiiii), inuii nit' necessity 01 immediate action up:t on it, is the most prominent and interesting measure e now before the people. liein/ a delegate to the Baltimore Convention, which will as emble on the 27th Vlay next, for tlm ' > purpose of selecting a candidate lor the office of i- President of the United States, i hid very anxious, r in common with many other delegates, to ascertain yottr opinions on this absorbing mid a!l-importaiit question. 11 1 intentionally abstain from the expression of my d own opinion, and also front making any suggestion r a > to liie effect which a decision for or against the * measure may have on ihe popular mind or action. 11 I submit the single question, and respectfully ask ' ueh an answer as vour judgment and retleclion may IS dictate, with the desire, it it he ag-eeable to you, to malic your views on this subject public. With high respect, ' Vour obodteii' servant, is j. Thompson. lt Cornmodore Chaulks Stewart, Bordentown, New Jersey. n Hill op Health, \ 's Near Borden town, N. J Alny 2, 18-M $ Slit; I have had the honor to receive your Ut'eT of the 29th of last month, intimating 'hat I have " been spoken ot as a candidate tor the office ct n Pre.ddent of the United States;" remarking, also, that " an intelligent people, exercising the light of selecting their own chief magistrate, are entitled t? '? know the opinions of those whom they may select e as their candidates, upon the lending questions tli i 8 agitate the public mind;" and concluding with asking mine on "the question of the annexation of Texas to this Union," as one which, "from tiie lis - eessitv of immediate action noon it. is the most s prominent and interesting measure now before (be j people." And you also add, that "being a delegate to tbe Baltimore convention, which assembles on J the 27th of May, it will be >ottr desire to make my t views on this subject public." j I am ptofoundly sensible of your good and patriotic views in making this inquiry, under existing circumstances, and shall proceed to reply, in all 1, trankness and sincerity, to your inquiry. 8 1 assume that there exists no constitutional objection to Texas being incorporated with our Union. - That question seems to be set at rest since our ac imisition of Louisiana and Florida, and the abmi. dant, and, as 1 have supposed, satisfactory discus II sion of it, to which all have access. I will at least venture to say that they have satisfied my mind. 1 Passing, then, to the general question, the reason* a are so numerous, cogent, powerful,and urgent,both ( oil the score of policy and humanity, tor making Texas part of the Union, and have so strong a !>e,ir ' ing upon ournational industry, revenues, prosperity, - and power, that I have not been able to refuse tin 3 assent of my judgment to them. I 1 have considered, on the other hand, the view* alleged against the measure; and, greaily as th? ** -ources whence they emanate are entitled to, ami y have my respect, they have not proved, on lie ,i calmest reflection, sufficient with me to outweigh the strong reusons that exist in its favor. That i ' -tep of so much magnitude, present and future. 1 should meet with opposition in the first instance, i* to be expected Tluswns the case when we aequo ed Louisiana and Florida, the objections to which are now forgptton in the unspeakable advantage.flowing from it, and to flow throughout ages to come ' Such, it appears to me, would decidedly attend the annexation of Texas. Millions unborn, and agein the future, may be expected to reap the advan tages of its incorporation with our Union long nftei the objections of the day are forgotten. This important acquisition, which can now be obtained with honor and advantage to all parties interested, bringing with it the consent and affections of its inhabitants, will, perhaps, when luiure necessity makes its acquisition imperative, be acquired only through desolating war, sanguinary contests, ana the loss of those affections of the Texan inhabn itants so essential to happiness in a united and reo publican people. But. 1 would not be for gaining those advantages, however transcendent and lastine I believe they would be for our country, at the expense of justice. The nriiu que-tion, therefore, is, would "annex!e ation"give Mexico just ground of complaint 1?l?-r it ol course, no other loreign country lias anything to do with the question. Now, 1 have not been abb r to bring my mind to the conclusion that it give: e Mexico any lust cause of complaint whatever. It ( is almost eight years since Tex ,.*, won her indepen denre at the decisive battle of San Jacinto. No serious invasion of her soil, or other efforts or itn r portant movements in arms, have been made b;, I- Mexico against her since that decisive victory, li g was, in fact, the consummation of Texan inde pendence, arid has produced throughout the world r" the unavoidable effect of an event so decisive. Tin 'i most powerful states of Europe have fullvrecognisib ed the independence of Texas?not suddenly, it i. 0 necessary to bear in mind, but after letting titm enough elapse fairly to attest thut the overwhelming victory of Pan Jacinto was decisive. Those state.i never would have recognised her independence so 6 long as tliey supposed there existed any probability of Mexico being able again to reduce Texas to subn mission by force of arms. It has, indeed, been n 'I principle with the United States, when civil wui i. existed in countries, to treat each party alike, a n soon (is the power of waging war dc facto exister with ea< h. But this has not been the practice ol ilie great powers of lhirope Tliev act on different e principles, to which their institutions mor- nulu . rally incline them. They are slow to sanction re sistance, in any shape, to exisiing authority in " g vernment. I hey were ve>v tardy, as all mat t remember, in acknowledging the independence pi n ihe revolted colonies of pa i h America,including Mexico anion? them. Nevertheless most of tho., inc ent kingd nis and Stums liave adopted Texsn' ' iipo the family nt nations by their most solemn f acts of rer gnition, which mean with them a great n deal more than the mere formal acknowledgement II of a de facto government existing in Texas, and liable, nt any wioinen', to he. again overthrown. ' and which facts may, therefore, well ninke us feel i- easy as to their opinion of unn-xit ion. The capturt of Lord Cornwallis did not more 11, fectndlv establish independence tor us by force < t " inns (tint as much so, perhaps, all circumstance ? considered,) as the total overth.ow of ti e ,vT. xic i () tot ec - at . sail.lacinio,and simultaneous cant me ot tin p .id ol the Mexican nation, establish'u independ nc- lor Ti xas. Great Britain acknowledged our? i- immediately after tli form r event, aa ancient, e proud, mid powerful monarchy as she was; yet ,, Mexico keeps up the idle show of Etlh being tin parent state over Texas, now nearly cglit year? '* after (he utter extinction of all her powers of supre ?. many, which so decidedly perished on the plain-i ,2 of San Jacinto. It may be asked, is I Ilia right 1 Cun it stand be fore the dispassionate judgment of nations 1 and is f- it reasonable towards the I'nited States'? It can id not be forgotten how Ion and justly Mexico ((j comp'ained of Spain's r> final to recognise her indep ndence aft? r s o had actually won it b\ fori e or arms. And here if may he mentioned, h ihat the fact of Spain having refused to recog l(| it long subsequent to the year 1825, former1 ao objecion with our governnient for offering ftpurchase Texas Irom Mexico in that year The last fart, of itself, may serve to chow that other na n fions are not bound to wait until tin* parent Stab r_ gives lier formal eon-'" ', unreasonably prolonged. to the independence id' the resiling colony His r" tory conttudicts that idea. If it were true, Holland i would have had to wait seventy years before sin r became an independent nation: lor we have lately hewn reminded, Iroina distinguished source, that it was lull thai length of tune before Spain?against r- whom she b id revolted?would acknowledge hei it indep iidrnce. I hope I may he excused for adding p ?for I consider it as belonging to the subject of ' this letter, and due to the true spirit of this whoh f'' occasion?that there are not wanting opinions, id carefully formed, which go to say, that if Mexici shmild, at this late day, recommence war in earnest against Texas, instead of keeping up, hi ttie lattei power, the irritation and inconvenience of only v talking about it for eight years nearly, the chances l. would he full us great, or even greater, that slu would he conquered herself, as that she would ever i re-subjugate that gallant ami independent people. Mot withstanding the conviction of my judgment s- that Mexico could not have the f-ust ground ol >f complaint against us, jn oistice or reason, for irn i mediate annexation, should we adopt ilvat measure, > I think it would become the magnanimity of this 'r srreat republic to purm:.* towards Iter us generou r- and liberal a course as possible, tl If, therelore, any subsequent sleps of lite most i- conciliatory nature, for snoiliing Iter feeling, ina\ s, Ire open to us, I would lie for adopting them, to the r- very verge of not yielding tip our rights, interests, ic or honor.

With all di ference to those who hold opinions differri.t Iroin ihos<- 1 have formed, and have here express d, 1 have the honor to remain, witli the J most respectful consideration, your most obedient ( and very humble servant, Charles Stewart. To the Hon J. Thompson, t llouse ol Representatives, Washington. Albany. Albany, May 4, 12 o'clock P.M. I write this just as the Senate is adjourning; they have been in Committee of the Whole a.most j the whole time since nine this morning, on a bill t allowing the expenditure of $130,000 per annum, ? under the special plea of keeping the public works . in order. The bill is viewed by ul! sar.e men ns ii repeal of the policy of '42. The passage of this , bill and the certiorari bill will most certainly lead to ( disastrous results. The whigs (Hall in the House, j and Rhodes in the Senate) have congratulated the , conservatives, who claim a democratic majority, i on having come up to the Seward and Rugglea' | standard. The locos here are in a devil ol a stew just now; the Committee on the address and resolution.! will bring forth their joint labors?I beg \ their pardon, not their labors?but such an address slid resolutions as all the conservatives here cun t agree upon and think the radicals will swallow. ; Look lor squalls here on Monday evening (Where ' is the Herald's reporter; I have a place selected i tor him). In case tin* two bills mentioned above, iheCeruorari and Improvement or Preservation of i lie Public Works' Hill, pass, there will be a chance for some promotions among the Croswellites, as Young, Barker, and Farrington will resign their respective offices. It is said Mrs F. will nol hear of such a thing, or we should have all our State officers resigning at the same time. So you may look on Wednesday for the news of the resignuuon of the Secietary of State, Attorney General, and Treasurer. By the by, how came locofoco New York to send, in twelve professed democrats, hm four or live Simon Pures. Your Police Bill, as also your amended School Bill, w'll pass the Senate.

Woodrutra br. g. George Washington started J for the prize. Three heats declared the winner , L nly Tompkins beat them all easily. Tip showed Iitmselt a good horse, but broke trot in every heat, as well as "George VVaehington " Tiie Lady -howed far the best training, a vert important point in trotting races, and but for this, the Lady would have been hard plied. She seemed tin favorite, and was freply backed at 2 to 1, and even greater odds were offered at the conclusion of tin ast heat. For the second prize, $200, mile heats, hi wagons, two horses started: ? Voorhees' lir s , Cayuga Chief, and Woodruff's mare, Fairy i Queen. The first start was beautiful?for the fits r islt round it was neck and neck. Bets were suspended?the very wind ceased lo blow?the crowd tood on tiptoe?the cash for one moment was fobb'd. "Now do thy utmost cantie, "Meg," I And gain the keystane o' the brig." I Forward she goes?hack goes Cayuga?the wheel ' of the wagon has struck the fence.
