P*rmanent Kxpr?u from Boston, on the arrival of every Steamer from ISiiKlaud. \V? sru happy to announce to the American Public that we liav e ma le permanent arrangement! for a year to come to run an Kxclutive Overland Kxprett from Boston, on the arrival of evary Britiih Mail Steamer at that port from Liverpool, with all the foreign intelligence for the use ol the otfloe of the Niw York Hchsld, and thence to be circulated over the counti y, moat generally one day hi advance of tlia United States Mail, and of every other paper of New York During the present year, we have given the public ample evideuce of our enterprile aud success In this respect, and no means shall bu left undone to oarry out the design to its follest extent. We have beaten the whole Now York proas about twht or fourteen timet in that period, an I we shall endeavor to do so again. Our reasons for entering upon this extensive enterprise are many and cogent The present year will he uncommonly full of events in Europe, ralculated to Htfi-e! the commercial, religious and political affairs of this country. The cotton, corn, money, and other markets of England and France, with the new movements in commercial conventions, are ail full of interest The progress of Irish Repeal?the dis. position to be made of O'Connell?and the action ol the British Government on the hanks and currency are equally so The avidity to receive intelligence on all these subjects, in this metropolis, and throughout the south aud west, is gr.-at and increasing, with the increase of trade, speculation and business here. On the other hand, the United States' Post Office Department, has become so helpless and inefficient of late, (hat some private enterprise must aid the circulation oj useful intelligence at the earliest moment, otherwise the honest commercial public will be placed at the mercy of private expresses, run tor private speculation. From the vast patronage given to the New York Herald by a gene rous public, we are enabled to establish, at our own ex pense, such an express as we have indicated, solely lor the bein tit and use of the whole public, und for the further circulation of our paper, and its early communication of all important news. The newspapers throughout the country with which we exchange, and all those of any use that desire an exchange, are requested to publish this announcement in a conspicuous part in their several papers and they shall receive more than an equivalent in the early Extras and news from this office, which will, on almost every practicable occasion, be one day in advance of every other papir, at welt at of the United State! Mail iiiuinir.MjLiui new totk rierata. The Presidential Question?Troubles of the F>* mu racy! Our accounts from Washington of the 6tnte of the democratic camp, continues to be extremely desponding and amusing Every day developes some fresh trouble in the democratic party, all betokening the approach of great disisters, un ess the Convention to meet at Baltimore takes some concil atory position. The war of Van Buren and Benton has broken out with tenfold violence against Tyler and Calhoun, in the journals at Washington, and Mr. Blair, in the "Globe," als< denounces Mr. Calhoun in the most unmeasured terms, as the head and front of a new intrigue u dismember and destroy the democratic party. Mr. Calhoun is denounced as being the author of the Texas treaty, or some portions of it, for the purpose of making it u weapon for the. destruction of Mr. Van Buren's nomination. Possibly it is so?possibly not. In addition to all this, we find that various delegations of the different States have come out, one autri uic uiucr, giving uji mcir uuntrsioii iu mr. van Buren, and declaring in favor of some now candidate. Already we have seen the delega^ tion of Ohio, or a portion of, declare them selves unalterably fixed in favor of Mr. Vai Buren. This has brought matters to a erf sis. Those opposed in that state to Mr. Van Buren are now moving with great force and unaniniiiy against him, whilst the delegations in Congress from Indiana ar d Mississippi, have almost t< a man coum out agai st him in the most decided manner in the Washington papers. How many more may come out, it is impossible to tell. But al indicates the dropping of Mr. Van Buren, and the growing?the widespread desire for some new candidate. In fact, the democratic party never was in such a gloomy, melancholy, interesting, ticklish condition, as at this moment. And on surveying its condition, our sensibilities are so excited to mirth and sorrow, that we hardly know whether to laugh or to cry, and in truth faintly mingle our tears with our laughter The squabbling?the jealousies?the intrigues?the movements and oounter-movements? the terrible denunciations? the din and tumult heard on all hands?are perfectly bewildering and darkly ominous of overwhelming disaster. We hope it won't all end as the mountain 111 labor did, and bring forth a mouse. The causes ot this singular state of things art many. There has been u growing dispos.iion in a certain portion of the democratic party, for some lime past, to get rid of Mr Van Buren on accouni of his want of popularity?his selfishness?his duplicity?his want of manly frankness?his havinf been in the Presidential chair already?and a vane ty of the elements of mischief to the party, whicf ... I... _V.I., .....I .-I. associated with his name and person. All tins how. ever, would not have defeated his nomination h! Baltimore, ns we maintained and supported by argument, ot which the great mass of our readers recognized the force. What then has fairly opened the tlood-gates against poor Mr. Van Buren ? The recent political events?the Connecticut election? the Virginia election?but above all the anti-Texas movement of his friends in which he has participated. The Connecticut election, and coming on the heels of it, the Virginia election, indicated in the most significant manner that Mr. Van Buren was not the man to carry the masses ()f the country with him. The Virginia election produced new light even in the mind of Mr Ritchie, and many of the democratic party, who were regarded as the firmest supporters of Mr. Van Buren, and who now openly take up the ground that he must be abandoned. But in addition to all these adverse movementi taking place in the recent elections, und in the ranks of the party, we have the recent Texas mov? ment Throughout the country, and particular!} since Mr Calhoun assumed the reins of the Stan department under Capt. Tyler, this movement hst finished \1r. Van Buren's chance of a nomination, at the Baltimore Convention, for if he would get it the dismemberment of the party, in the present state of things, would be certain. The Texas question, when it was sprung upon the country, excited alarm amongst the democratic party in the Southern and Western States to a great extent; nnd this even as the naked question. It was a question of trouble to both parties?to Mr. Clay as much as to Mr. Van Buren, and it was the merest accident in the world which prevented the Whig party from being torn asunder by it. Mr. Webster seized upon this question at a very convenient time, eame out and denounced it, carrying wuh him some of the Eastern and middle States This position, notwithstanding Mr. Webster's support, is destined to oe the unpopular one with the great mass of the people of this country, who will, in process of time, 1* be unanimously in favor of it. Mr. Clay was inclined, under the first impulses of the moment, to lavor Texas; and, whilst travelling through the South, lit* sent a letter to Washington decidedly in favor of annexation, which was, however, returned to him by request of his friends in Congress, with , an intimation that such a position would lead to a dismemberment of the Whig party, in consequence of the position assumed by Mr. Webster. Accordingly, Mr. Clay wrote a (second letter, which was the letter published ; and it restored the unanimity of the Wing party on that question, at least till alter the next election. Unfortunately lor Mr. Van Buren, his friends did not manage him us well as the ftiends of Mr. Clay and Mr. Webster did in Washington. A movement having been made in this city originating in Wall street against annexation, Mr. Theodore Sedgwick, Albert Gallatin, Wm. 0. Bryant, and other philosophical politicians, without reflection and without looking upon the greatness mid popularity of this measure when properly discussed, came out denouncing itopposed it and stimulated the meeting ul the Tabernucle in opposition lo it, and thus gave Mr Van Buren the idea that anti-annexation was the popular side, and of course that he was bound to take it. Thus misled, out Mr. Van Buren cornea against annexation, and his letter gave the finishing biow to his prospects, and consigns hi in to the tomb of all the Capulets. or if he prefer it, the shades of Lindenwald or Greenwood. He has been sacrificed by the narrow-mindedness?the miserable folly?the pitilul policy of the Evening Poit clique of this city. Wm. C. Bryant?and the others ot that ilk, are his pall-bearers. They have put him into u dilemma fiom which there is no escape, and effectually defeated ull chance of his nomination at the Baltimore Convention. Such, therefore, is the present position of tilings. The Texas question has finished what the elections r> i ir: ill ^uiiiicuiiuui iiuu v n^iuia uuiiimciii-tu "?? ? ?*gard to Mr Van Buren and the democratic party in the approaching Baltimore Convention. It is now clear at-the day, that unless the democratic pirty concentrate their forces on General Cass or Commodore Stewart, they will be utterly routed, ruined and destroyed by the combined forces of the Whig party under Mr. Clay. Thk Philadelphia Riots?Hokriui.e Bloodshed.?We give in another column the lull particulars of the third riot, or insurrection, in Philadelphia, which has just taken place there, during the present week, between the Natives and the Irish population, growing out of political and religious feelings on both sides. This riot has raged for three days, with a loss of about ten or twelve inen killed and as many wounded, and the conflagration ol forty houses. Yesterday morning, when the cars left, the conflagration was still raging in Kensington. We have no time or room to-day to make any extended remarks on this horrible outbreak, or to investigate the irnmediute causes of the riot. lis bloody character and tumultuous proceedings will astound the country, and be the cause of severe remark in Europ on republican institutions. The original causes ot this state <>! things may be traced to ecclesiastics and politicians in this and other States, who have deluded and used the poor Irish people here as the big beggarman O'Connell has done in Ireland. By attempting to govern political results,as a distinct race or class, their conduct has aroused the opposition of the whole American people of both parties, native as well as the naturalized of other countries than Ireland. In the case of Philadelphia, it is lamentable that such bloodshed should attend the like movement which we began and brought to a successful issue in New York with peace, quiet, and public tranquillity. We shall have more to say on this topic. The Wikoff Correspondence.?We have just ( discovered among our papers a fresh batch of Wikoff 's letters,in addition to those we have announced?one of them giving an account of his doings at Havana, of a most rich and racy character. We shall give the whole, if possible, to-morrow. Ajtropot?If Wikofl'will only bring his libel suit, 1 shall put on the stand as witnesses all the editors and attaches of the New York press, including Chevalier Galliardet, all the hotel keepers, and managers ol the Park Theatre, and then what a precious development will be forthcoming ! Come on?man. Religious Anniversaries.?We are compelled by the want of room, notwithstanding the issue of a "Supplement," to defer publishing the proceedings ol the " Home Missionary Society," the " Tract Society" and the " Peace Society " until lo-inorrow. The body of Michael Murphy, an American Seaman, who was most foully murdered, at the port of Havana, by a Spanish seniiuel, under the direction of his commanding officer, ha6 been brought to this city for interment, in the ship H. Allen, Captain Wilson. The funeral will take place from the "Sailors' Home," No. 190 Cherry street, this afternoon, at 3 o'clock. The funera' service will be performed by the Rev. Henrv Chase. The seamen of the port, and the friends of seamen generally, are invited to attend the funeral, to pay this last sad mark of respect to the memory of an American seaman, most savagely slain by a foreign soldier. Cuptains of vessels are requested to hoist their flags half mast during this day. The excellent Band from the North Carolina is expected 10 he in attendance. The evening papers will please copy the above. Apropo*.?For the publication of a similar announcement to this, our cotemporary of the "Sun" charged last evening $2. Rather small potatoes we should think. Steamboat Stked.?There was a race between the South America, Captain Truesdell, and the t Empire, Captain Roe, two rf the finest and fastest - vessels in the world. They left this city a little i before 7 o'clock on Monday morning, and arrived r at Albany a little before 4 o'clock, P. M. A strong ebb tide most of the way. The Empire arrived at l Albany just about as much ahead as she had the start at New York. Latest from St. Domingo.?15y the brig Republic, Capt. Hoyt, which sailed fr?m Port Republican April 28, we learn that the whole Island of St. Domingo is in a state of revolution. Jacmel and Jeremi had been taken by the blacks. General Reviere was still neutral,waiting for reinforcements to attack the city of St. Domingo. Distinguished Arrivals expected from Europe.?We understand that Father Matthew, the great Irish orator on Temperance, will visit this country in June?so will Sir E. L. Bulwer, the great novelist?Liszt, the great pianist, will send over his secretary in .Tunc, and visit us in person m October. Neptcmk House?New Rochem.k.?This exceli lent, cool and picturesque summer retreat, situated ' >n the shore of the Sound, and kept by Mr. Rice, has jusi been refitted, enlarged, and opened to re' ceive company for the summer. It is an excellent ' place for families to visit. Access to New York ? can be had either by land or water every day. A i steam boat leaves the landing every morning at 6, and reaches here at 9, and again leaves at 3 in the afternoon, and touches nt New Rochelle at 6, o 1 thereabouts. The scenery around is most delight ful. Madison Cottage.?This beautiful place of renort, opposite Madison square, corner of 23H street and Broadway, is opened for the season, and Palmer's omnibuses drive to the door. It is one of the most agreeable spots for an afternoon's lounge in the suburbs of our city, flo and i-ee. Fresii Sai.mon from Kennedec!!.?Barney Wil liams, one of the finest bits of fresh salmon in a theatrical way, takes a thumping benefit to-niglu at the Knickerbocker Theatre, Bowery.

Our i ity is u general scene of alarm and confusion?Kensington is the theatie of an unprecedented riot, of conflagration and bloodshed?the liuits of ilo- i|n irrel between the Native Americans and Irish Catholics. We have only room to continue the account of death and devastation commenced yesterday, confining ourselves to the facts as wc can gather them, without comment. During the forenoon of yesterday the scene of Monday s disturbance was remarkably quiet for the time and circumstances, most of the poor Irish were leaving their houses, Htid moving what they could of their property. At the corners and in the ftiu.ires aronnd the hattle around were collected crowds of Native Americans, conversing with much excitement upon the doings of Monday, and rendy, at a moment, to join in a general riot. About ten o'clock a large partv of Native Americans assembled at Second and Master streets, and marched in procession through the district of KettMnaion, parting the Market House whete the tight rook place 011 Monday evening und lu.-t night. in the procession was carried the large fhg which had been r.i!?ed < n Monday, and whu-h was consideribly torn. Preceding litis was a banner borne by on# man, and having upon its front this inscription i Till II TltS Fl AO THAT MAI BKK* TftAMPLED UPON' BY THE IRISii PAPI3T9 ! The procession moved down Third street to the heatt of the city, and cheered at sortie of the newspaper offices?groaning at others In the afternoon the Natives assembled in Independence Square,_ numbering ironi two to three thousand. A nii-eting was organized, and the crowd was addressed by Mr. C.J. Jack. Frotn thence they proceeded in procession to Kensington, headed by Mr. Jack, and marched to Second and vtas terstreets, then to the Washington street market, where the fights had occurred on Monday. Here they again organized h meeting, and Mr. Jack again mounted the stage to nddr< as them. It wjs then about 5 o'clock P. MImmediately after the organization of the meeting, a scene of extraordinary riot commenced, and winch, it is alleged, by the parties was commenced, some say, by the Irish?others say by the Natives. We give the account as accurately as possible, without any wish to side with either party. Some boys who were in the crowd at the market, commenced throwing stones at the Hibernia hose house opposite on Cadwallader street. Some exhibitionof a general outbreak were apparent, und in a few moments a volley of stones and brickbats were thrown by both parties. There were several small wood houses adjoining the hose house, occupied by Irish people, and at and into the windows these itones and other missiles were thrown. The riot now increased with fearful violence, and one or two guns were fired. It is said that the first shoi whs (>?.in the house at the corner of Master and Cadwailader streets. A rush was made at the Hi hernia hose house, and the Hibernia hose carriage, and an old carriage belonging to the Washington hose company, were taken out and carried off? both hfterwafos broken up. About this time a volley was fired by the Iris'. from the corner house named above, and one ot two men were shot. The rioting then broke up ii extraordinary' confusion. During the first of the not an Irishman rushed out of"a house half asquart .bove the scene of destruction, ran down to within some five to ten rods ?f the mob end fiied, killiu.' one man dead. At this lime the mob had, it is believed, no arms, and all fled precipitately, leaving a hoy with the flag, which was home off by him and i man, who came to his assistance. The mob then placed the flag up before a house at the N. E. corner of Second nnd Master, and, ifter getting a number of muskets, again repaired to the market house, headed by Peter Albright, who had been shot in the hand. Thev then i>h raded on the space wtst and south of the market house, exposed to the shots of tne Irish in the houses opposite. A general and bloody skirmish now took place. The natives numbered from thirty to sixty armed men, and they were all who catne into the bloody arena. The rest?number ing from five to eight thousand, blocked up every avenue Hnd street leading to the market. As soon as the armed men appeared in front of the Irish houses, volley after volf y was tired into them, and the fire was return wi'ii h effect, aFtlie assailed were in agr -t 1 isure -It tared. Tnis lasted nearly an hou iring wh cli upwards of twenty men of the Nat were shot? probably near half that number k Several <1 the Irish were wounded, but it i known how many, or whether any of them w illed. ?eve-1 ral times they sallied out in ibers, and | tired upon the Natives, retreating imni .(lately into the houses. One daring fellow named John Tnggart, rushed nut of a house, and fired several times upon the Nativ?s?it is said, killed two org three men. A rnsli was made upon him, and he was captured, though fighting like ti madman, and just in the hoi of shoo ing a fourth gun. The weapon was wrested from him by a citizen named Bartholomew Baker, and the infuriated mob rushed upon him. knocking him down, and stamping his face almost to shapelessnesa. Some of the more humane got possession of Ta^gart, and took him to the office of Aid Boileau, in Second street above Beaver ? Several times on the way, and even at the office, the infuriated Americans rushed on the Irishman, tiid beat and stamped him most unmercifully. Aid B made out a commitment for Taggart, on ;i charge of murder, and be was given into the hands of citizens to be sent to the Mayor's office of the N. Lib erties. They had not proceeded tar, however, when another rush was made?those who had charge of him were beaten off, and a most revo! ting scene followed. Th prisoner wa< kicked and -tamp-d until hardly a feature was discernnble ; tlten dragged, by a rop" tied round his neck, down ihe street totlie Second street market above Htown Here the mob attempted to hang bint up, but citizens interfered, and after some delay he was borne off to the office of Mayor Cannon, still breathing While this was coin* on, the Nat v.-. had linen fearfully industrious at tha scene of terror. About 6 o'clock, almost every attempt at opposition ceased, and they had it all their own way. The frame house at the corner ol Master and Cudtvallader streets was broken open and set tire to, and the tiames mon spread to the Hove House on Hadwallader street, and several fiame houses on Master street. The armed Natives put ruled the streets in front, to prevent any attempt to extinguish the fl .mes, an I every now an<i thru a nun was (ired Irom the burning buildii,gs, and the fire wan returned trebly by the crowd. We left the scene of destruction at half pant 7 o'clock P. M. At that time six or eight buil lings were in fl tnes and the fire was rapidly spreading The srene was aw fill iy terrible, anil there was a dreadful silence in tint va-t mob of thousands ?broke only by the roar of thellamis. 'he discharges of musketry, and now and then a hoar .i hurrah! at some new success of the Natives that am more alarming than the tumult of battle. '1 he tire hills had been lolling lor an hour, and several companies hai' repaired towards the conflagration, but were all stepper three or four squares oil'. We hasten towards the close of this soul-sickening le tail?hardly half relating the eventi of the last ten hours The following are the names of the killed and wounded, whirh our rep irters have gathered up to this time.

A lawyer named Pomlinier and several other persons were arrested on the 2fitfi, on suspicion of being connected with the conspiracy There was a rumor in circulation just previous to the sailing of the Gen.
