NEW YORK HERALD %a?r Y?rk, Slomlkf, May 13 IMk. Important from Wkihlngton. We refer our readers to some very important coi raspondwue from Washington, developing th real state of things there, which will be loan under our Postscript Head. By these accounts i would seem that Van Buren will be the democrat! candidate after all?and that all the elements wil be reconciled in u new position in a few d?ys. This is a droll world?and politics is a droll thing PsBSIDKNTUL Ml.YSTRKI.SY A-.P PwtSIDKNTlAl Rr?ti-*Y.?Atwill has just published the classics song, " Clay and Frelinghuyseti," which was *un( with such transport by the temperute niohs assem bled at the Baltimore Convention. Thta is another indication that the present electioneering cam paign is to be characterised by the same disreputa ble scene* of riot and debauchery, which in 1841 disgraced the country in the eyes of this world, atu also the nest world, with the exception ot that por tion of K for which these drunken and vile orgie: prepared those who participated in them We had, indeed, hoped that this contest woult have been conducted with decency and dignity Hut the recent Whig Convention at Baltimore hai undeceived us. Look at the crowds who flockei there?the drunkenneas?l-the debauchery?th< ae useless appeals to the lowest passions of a mob? the vulgar emblems paraded?the loafers, nick named "minstrels"?the violence?tho ubuaeths oaths?the disgusting conduct of all lead ers, mob and all, from beginning to end Oh! it is really sickening to witness sucl scenes. They are disgraceful to human beings No wonder their recital in Europe eliciti the sarcastic inquiry, if we are civilized here in the United States. This abominable mummery ot "coons," aad "coonskins," is especially disgusting. It reminds us of the degraded Egyptians in their worship of rats and the vilest vermin A Coon ! And is this, indeed, an emblem of the whig party?this vile, miserable, dirty creature of the forest 1 Are the opponents of the whigs any better1? Not nne whit. Thev are nrermrins for a ereat Convt'n tion at Baltimore,and it will be equally disgraceful, no doubt, as that of the whigs. According to all appearances, the same revelry, the stune debauchery, the 3anie intemperance, will characterize it.? Instead of "coonism" it will be "hickorytsin,"and if we won't hear the cry of "hard cider," we will have something harder still?hard whiskey and hard brandy and hard swearing. The probability is, that Mr. Van Buren will be the antagonist ot Mr. Clay, notwithstanding all that has been said to the contrary. What is the reason that the contest between tlieni cannot be carried on with decency, and that elevation ot character which would give it dignity 7 Are there not measures of importance and great public interest to be debated between them 7 Can these not be temperately discussed 7 Can the country and its institutions not be saved from the disgrace which these scents of riot and debauchery, and these vulgar appeals to passion and prejudice, bring upon them 7 We have perceived with regret, thai even Mr. Webster appears to have lost sight ol the elevated principles which have heretofore enaracteriied his political efforts. His speeches, since the Baltimore Convention, are not at all worthy of him. They are too much in the prevailing style an l spirit of the vulgar political campaigners ? Th-y ate too much characterized by abuse, vituperation and appeals to the passions. Can we really not be saved a repetition of the scenes of the "Harrison Campaign?" Are we indeed to be ugnin covered with the disgrace of sue! conduct as that on which we have animadverted ' unlets Father Mathew saves us, we have no hope. American Rrritblican Caucus.?The member! of the Common Council elect are progressing lowly in caucus, in the selection of candidates to supply the places of those in office who are to he removed. Richard L. Schieffelin, Esq., of the 15th Ward hubeen selected as President of the Board of Aldermen, and William Everdell, of the 2d Ward, President of the Assistants. Charles A Whitney, of the 15ih Ward, has been chosen Clerk of the Board of Aldermen, in caucus, and Thomut R Whitney, of the same ward, C'erk of the Board of Assistants. Benjamin S Whitney, the popular speaker of this party, was defeated in hit application for the last named office, through some mistake in the naiVie, we believe. Harris Wilson, E?j , of the 9th Ward is selected as Public Administrator ; John Leveridge, E-q., of the Seventh Ward, is jelecied as counsel of the Board ; William Co*, grocer, of the 9th Ward, keeper of the City Prison ; and William Harrington, the popular nantliiLfp rtf fh?? ha rtv lu Inlin R Mm. rill, of the 12th Ward, keeper of Blackwell's Inland ; Dr. Eli Leavitt, botanic physician, of the 13th Ward,City Inspector; Dr. Archibald Mercer, of the 1st Ward, resident physician ; Horace Loofboro', superintendent of the Alma House. These appointments are reported as correct, but to-morrow will decide. The present Boards meet this afternoon at half past three o'clock, to adopt such measures as they may deem advisable, and at which time the lease of the Fulton ferry will be disposed of according to previous resolutions. Cabiskt Dissknsiovs.?There are rumors ol more cabinet dissensions already, in different parte of the country. The Washington correspondent o' the Albany Argui, who i? generally well-informed, states that the resignation of Mr Calhoun may be speedily expected, and that the retirement ol Mr Nelson, the attorney general, is to be also lookec for soon. The correspondent of the Bonton Cour ier, who is also careful in his statements, corro borates this, arid says that Mr. Calhoun's resignation is certain, and alludes to n number of changer raid to be contemplated in the diplomatic ranks. The probability is, that these reports are premature; but we do not think that Captain Tyler wil' keep his present cabinet long, for he never keeps any one long He appears to be as glad to get rid of a cabinet ns he is to Ret a new one. In this he very much resembles the baby? ' Pleaneil with ? rattle??ick 1?<1 with a MrnW? and who is in a paroxysm ot delight with a new toy, but never rests till he finds out what is inside, and then, heartily tired of it, smashes it into atoms. John Jones is the only man in the government that sticks. And we suppose John sticks because he is pretty inuchol the same calibre and tastes with live va ['in in. Pennsylvania Honor and Honesty.?In Harris burg, the Pennsylvania Legislature boast of thei wraith and resources, yet refuse to raise a tux ti [ity the interest of their jiublic deht. In Philadel 1'hin, tbey boast of their morals, peace and s? briety, yet they permit a mob for three days t hoot, murder, burn, and commit sacrilege, ti they be sated with the sport of destruction. What has caused this terrible demoralization t the once respectable and moral State of I'enr sylvanta 1 Answer?The double corruption and coalition o banking and politics. We do verily believe that the modern system o banking, which is only a system of fraud, die honesty and falsehood, has been one of the tw< principal corrupting elements of society during ihes? latter days. The other isthe coalition between th< politicians and the elergy, which was intended ti eontrol the people, in like manner with that he tween the financiers and the politicians. Who can give us a clear analysis of the cause which have led to the present state of public am private demoralisation in society 1 Thrse Dats Later prom China.?The Zenobis Curiam (Canney, arrived yesterday, with advice fro n Macao to the 26th January.

( In order to clinch this vote, and prevent ai , recurrence of the discussion, without a change the rules, (which cannot be done,) a motion for reconsideration wns also taken, and decided ! the negative?ayes 98, noes 103 Thus is the tariffdiscussion finished for the pr sent session?and the causes may partly be foui in the fact that the Texas question has become tl paramount element in the feud between the d ferent sections of the "democracie"?between tl Calhoun and Van Buren sections. The following are very curious remarks, fro the "Globe," on the fina't:? Tub T.mirr Bu.i..?It will be seen that the great mf sure of the amnion ?the tariff Mil?ha* been laid on tl tame, Dy u majority ot gix We must say tnit result 11 not surprised us much. Before the recent excitement hi grown up here, preliminary to the meeting of the Bal more Convention, which has been suddenly turned in an outcry ahout the annexation of Texas, we have reast to believe, the hill would have passed without difficult It may, therefore, be truly said, the dissension atiout tl mediate and immediate annexation of Texas has had tl effect of defeating the great measure which has heretufo been all in all with the republican party. Wo have understood that members irom the Sout heretofore the most active opponents ol the existing ari and who took the greatest interest in the pending bi have suddenly become perfectly indifferent in regard it Several of them have been seen to remain quietly their seats, dsc.inlng to psss between the tellers to 1 counted on the vote in regard to amendments decisive 1 o the late of the bill. Such indifference on the part members (mm a section ot the Union most interested 'he reduction of the tarifT. was calculated to beget a sin i?r feeling among the democrats of the North who are j clincd to enter into the views of their brethren of tl South. Thus, it will he seen that the absorbing question of tl Presidency, which has been associated with that of Texi nai swallowed the tariff The Texas question, by itse could have had nc such effect; for the whole diSeren between the democrats in regard to that subject, resolv tsel into the question of mediate or immediate, which nothing more than the difference between tweedie-du and tweedle-der Every body now sees that Texas ra not come into the Union but by the vote of a future Co grass Both portions of the democratic party defer it 'he next election It is insisted that the candidate for f Presidency shall he chosen with an eyetn that objei and wr know of no democratic candidate who is not pi pared to go for the annexation of Texas, in case the peo| , and the Rt.des, through the representatives they m elect, declare in isvor of it. Possibly, however, the tarifi may come up in | newnn(loriginulshape,whentheprovi8tonsol thel rnotis Zoll Verein treaty comes before ihe Hou< Thai Convention will give a new direction entirely all tariff discussions, and il is likely that Mr. C: hoitn and the South prefer to kill off "an Bur i with the Texas question, and to arrange the tat in the shape of foreign treaties. We'll see. Th may he the reason why the Southern anti-tar members have so quietly submitted to the prese result. Things are taking a curious turn. I The Stoi-en Treat*.?The Washington corn ^ondcnt of the Albany Argus, gives the followi account of the mode hy which the stolen trea was published in the Evening Pott of this city I probably informed you in the last communication he Argus, that Mr.Dyer. the 9rrgeant at Arms tothe St ate, hail gone to New York with a requisition trom t select committee of Investigation on the publication oft reatyot annexation upon the publisher of the Evenit Post, to appearand give testimony in that matter befu tie committee. On Friday last Mr Boggs arrived here tompany with the honorable otticer Yesterday the whc natter cants out before the committee The copy fro which Mr Boggs printed was probably Mr Tappan hough that Senator's name was not upon it. It was tak to New York by a Mr [Thingimbob] of that city on W? 'tesday, the 24th of April. It was laid on the table of t! pinioi editor, Mr Bryant being absent, and when foui here by said junior editor, this Mr [Tbingimbob] w found in the room, and waa known to have juat arriv from Washington, tie respectfully declined giving ar reply to the curlru i questions of the junior editor, who surprise in finding himself in possession of the much c veted documents was great and unfeigned. A consul! tion was held and it was resolved, after debate, to puhli the utiair This natural conclusion was not come to.ho' ever, until it was thought to have been ascertained th there was another copy in town, and that it war to issued from the office of the Express on Saturd morning The Washington correspondent of that pap had given his employers information that they would t ceive a copy on Friday night. This turnjd out to sure to he moonshine, hut it turned the scale of delibei tion, and the treaty and correspondence appeared in tl P?it of the next day. The actual hearer of the trea was also discovered by the Sergeant-at-Arms and broug on His story agreed in all particulars with that of <V Boggs. Mr. Tappan had previously informed the co mittee by lettor of the oirnimstances under which tf particular copy left this city. The result of the who matter was that Mr. Boggs anil Mr. were illsm'n ed, and the former has returned home without even tieii reprimanded. He quietly pocketed his pay and miles as a witness, some $ol), and will probably reach home ' attend the last meeting of the old Common Coan i prior to the advent of Native Americanism. By this it would seem that both parties in t Senate, whigs and democrats, winked at the the .and pat their fingi rs on their nose in examini i into ttir tacts. wucre in in mural principle tl used to govern the U.

NoRTH UlVER Something must be done by the proper authoritii hi- to put a stop to the steamboat racing on the Nori 5,; River. Scarcely a day passes that the lives of hui ,le drcds are not placed in imminent danger by this r *} prehensable conduct. We have a case or two in point. Two boat M the Troy and South America, were advertised leave for Albany at 7 o'clock on Saturday morniu ie- t. ,i,i ?<l|, ?ih lo and the excitement of their Captains was eo i iense,that one started at half-past six and the otli y1\ immediately shot out after her, leaving mails, pa sengere, and every thing else behind them. Lucl ily one broke down and was compelled to retnr It should be borne in mind that these steamers ca 1,1 ry the Northern mail, which daily leaves this cit and which, of course, contains letters of impurtanc ;s yet, notwithstanding this, and their obligations ng the travelling public, theirowners and commandf ty pay no sort of attention to any tiling but their saf ty valves, and not olten even to them, and to si to which will first reach Albany, j"" Such conduct cannot be too loudly condemned be aud unless the proper authorities take cognizani 'it hi the matter,and forbid it altogether, we shall hei i,, of an explosion and dreadful loss of life before tl I' summer sweeps by. These steamers run so rapii ly thtough the water that they dash over every ol en stacle in their way. Last Thursday night the A jj'j bany, on her passage up the river, ran over and s&t. mi a sloop in Tappan hay. The crew saved their live and barely so, by getting on board the Alban; iv which boat afterwardsgrounded at Castleton on ai *" count of the lownees of the water. ? Again we say,let steamboat racing he strictly fo ?h bidden. W ' " at Ft. Patrick's Cathedral.?There was a larg ^ attendance at this beautiful Catholic edifice ysste er day, attracted, doubtless, by the additional motiv ^ of hearing, as was confidently expected, some a rii. lusion made to events of late occurrence, of grei be moment to the Catholic Church in Amcrici h* Bishop McClosky preached a sermon of muc ir. power and eloquence,from thel6th chapter of Johi 20th and following verses ; and although no direi ile mention was made to the serious and troubled a ?g l'pr' ?' l'le re''K'0U9 affairs ol their brethren i ge Philadelphia, the appositeness and applicability < o'!j the lessons inculcated in the sermon, to those o currences and afflictions, made it valuable at he deeply felt. The subject was prayer. The Bishi ft, reviewed the history of the human race, from i ng pristine simplicity and innocence?when the sou iat pure and holy, wuitfnn emanation of the divinity :he when prayer, praise and adoration, was the bea psd tude and supreme enjoyment of man, until the pt t? sent, when degeneracy, estrangement from Go and ilie turbulence of passion, make the use ' prayer of paramount necessity. The eujoymen er' of the man of faith and prayer, however obscur ud humble, and unlettered he was, were more inn a[| lectual, ethereal, more sublime and extatic tin all the researches o| human wisdom, the who n I L?l ll?l *" I Jill I M ?D?J|Mly Ct'MIU MIJ>|liy.

MONK t JIAUKET. *Mn?ley, May 13?6 P. SI. Tho last week presents some very curious mo-amenta in the stock market. The great speculations going on in fancy docks, will, in a short time, bring about some still more lurious results A speculation similar to the one now goirgnn, confined entirely to stocks that aro utterly wnrthlrss. must, sooner ur later, reach a crisis and i-xplode There ia nothing connected with the adranee able to sustain it. it is the result of movements made between speculators, leaving no'hing lie. hind showing value. It is a fictitious value that exists merely on paper, or in the imaginations of a few credulous. deluded individuals. During the past weeks good *tate storks have fluctuated but very little Ohio and urnmiity o niivc nor uuvanceu mure man iwo per cent. The ..dvancc has been entirely confined to fancies. The incitement runs so high in Wall s'reet that every anil ?ny expedient is resorted te to raise funds to cnrry on the game. it has drawn into the whirlpool many merchants, who have heretofore never meddled with these dangerous things It has ind ced individuals engaged in a regular business to exchanga their notes for the purpose of obtaining capital and propose them for discount at tho hanks, as business paper. This must sooner or later lead these parties to bankruptcy. Any deviation from a rea gular course of trade, by those engaged in 8ny permanent business to take hold of speculations, must produce a neglect of one That holding out the best prospects will occupy time and capital, to the injury of the pthcr ? Speculation is opt to pro luce this result. The visions of sudden wealth, produced by stock operations have a very great influence on thn mind, and every thing is abandoned during a period of higli prices, to attend to this business. Stock speculations are the usual resort ot those who have tried every eiher occupation and failed. Wall street is the resort of those who have pas*ed through 'he bankrupt law Wh''n every other expedient has failed, as a dernier resort, speculation in fancy stocks is resorted to. Their operations are confined to fancies, ai it does not require much capital to carry on extensive movements in such things. Statu stocks, and nil those of any real vorth, takes capital to control. The profits arising from peculations are small compared with what it appears on paper. The success of these opera*ions depends upon tho number of those who are induced to enter the street and try their luck. Fortunes cannot be made out of each other, as the resources of the whole clique, in the aggiegate, would not amount to a competency.

The speculations of the week just closed, seemed to have lost a little or its force, as prices show a greater regularity than for the previous week Business in general has become very active All our staple productions are in good demand, and prices are very steady and remunerating. There is not the slightest symptom of speculation in any thiBg connected with tr.idn. Credits are extended on a very liberal scale, and purchasers pay up pretty well. The country merchant comes to the city with the intention of laying in a moderate supply of new goods, hut finds it impossible to resist 'he inducements hell out to purchase extensively. There is n system of business carried on by the jobbnrs of this ity that should he exposal. A country merchant, for instance, is in the habit of purchasing his dry goods of a ertain house. This house makes arrangements with lealerg in hardware, crockery, groceries, fic , to introduce customers at a stipulated per cent per dollar on what they purchase The country merchant ?particularly il he in a stranger?is voiy thankful for introductions, where it is represented he can purchase cheaper han in any other place iu Naw York, and becomes the victim of the individual in whom he places the greatest confidence The dealer to whom these customers are introduced. knowing the per cent their custom cost* tliein, puts it upon the goods they ptiruhase? that is, add it to heir regular profits in their charges?and they are made to pay tho per cent that goes into the pocket) of their friends, who have their interests so much at heart, lus ead ot there being that mutual exchange of customers, or Instead of leaving the country merchant to seek out these houses, whose economy, &c , enables them to sell at tho 4 i allest profits, they are induced by false representations, to confine their purchases to a rliqw who have combined for the purpose of enabling them to secure all the trada possible, and to establish their own prices.
