About twenty year- ago, all the journal* id New York were published in Wall firm, an.I were under the influence of Wall afreet i air re*!* Thua n pe culiarly narrow, exclusive and -character* i* given to the journalism ol tin.- great nt<*ir>>,K>ii? And such lor nmny year- w an the character of the New York pre** Hut 'lie in<le|wndeat cheap pre?4 arose and it became ?t on< >? the organ ol n more enlightened, philosophical and comprehensive pub lie opinion. Ai tins nioinent there ire three or lour journals published in the region ol \V II street, uid retaining the marks and character ol the old *> - teni?the Courifi and Emqmiiir, the Jomrnu I Commerce, ihe AVeniiig the Commetrnil A > vertiter, and the EryrtM The* inpri r> , re 'mt the views and opinions ot tinancinl clique* iu th >t street, and uniformly frat?mi?e rather with U> reign policy and toreign interest* than with American teehngs and American sentiment* Thus, on all questions intimately coiineiird with the growth, progress and triumph ot A men can Democracy, we find this species ot stock jobbing journalism re-echoing the old lory pre*- o| England, and actually contending agaui-t the princi ple* on which this republic is lounded The only true representation ol the New \ ork press?of American public opinion ol the progress of the age?of the mighty impulses now moving society in all directions, is that journalism located between the corner of Fulton and Nassau streets and Tammany Hall?the Herald, the Sun, the Trt. bum, and the True Sun. In this region, are pub lished daily about eighty thousand sheets, and pro bably double that number every week. And tins widely diffused journalism is entirely unrestricted? entirely uninfluenced by moneyed clique* It is be yond the reach of wealth, power, or control ing agencies. It is the embodiment of the spirit of the republic and the spirit of the age. It is, in fact, the great director and exponent of the energy, im pulse, sentiments and opinions ol the United States The Medical Schools and Medical S?k iety ?This subject is becoming very interesting, juirli" cularly since the opening of the new University, and its progress during the last few years. At this mo ment there are about four hundred pupils at the new school, yielding an annual income ol seven oreiuht thousand dollars. At the old school, only about one hundred pupils have entered, and the income is. of course, proportionubly small. in point of medical talent, the two schools may be pretty much oh a par. Hut iti knowledge of the world, and tact in making an impression upon the public mind, the new school is vastly superior to its rival, whose managers,with the best means of mak ing themselves popular, yet want that courteousuess ?policy?knowledge ot the world, which only could enable them to be successlul. During the summer season, the professors of the new school, like regu larly educated diplomatists and politicians, travelled round the country, and made every effort, by cir culars and prospectuses, and personal application, to represent their institution as in a most flourishing condition, and by this means have collected pupils from all parts of the country. In the winter season, with a great deal of talent in the professors, they add to that soirees, to which the students are invited, and every degree of attention paid them. Their relatives, too, when they visit the city, are kindly cared for and patronized, and thus all the seductive arts of society are made to combine with medical education, so as to fill the classes. On the other hand, the professors of the old school belong to the old style, called laughably enough, the " highly respectable class of society," the " first settlers of New York"?the " real aristocracy of Manhattan"?and would as soon think of inviting the " old gentleman," horns, eloven-foot, tail, and all, as one of the students to their "highly respectable parties." The consequence of all this is, that the old school has very little popularity, although a great deal of talent, which, if properly managed on the modern principles, would be as productive as wc see it is in the new school. Curious Results of the Election.?The returns of the election in this State demonstrate, that it the whigs had taken the advice we gave them before the election, and selected the whigs from the native ticket, they would have had a majority in the As sembly?an event which would have put the party on its legs again, and have been very disastrous to the locofocos. Seeing this, the shrewd men among the whigs are loud in their denunciations of Greeley and the Tribune clique, who have deprived the i>arty of a victory which was so clearly within their grasp. Everybody knows, unless he is a blockhead, tha* n fight between the whigs and natives, since it must have taken place, would have been just as well on Senator, Register, and part of the Assembly ticket, as a fight on the whole; consequently, many dis. creet wings were desirous of adopting a union ticket in part, and being disgusted with the course taken> more than five thousand staid away from the polls, sufficient to have elected Mr. Bradish, as well as other parts of the ticket. The whig Assembly ticket, exclusive of those on the temperance ticket, received an average vote of 11,300, and the natives not on the tenqierance ticket received 8,700, making a total of 20,000 votes, given by thel two parties. 'J he highest democratic vote on the Assembly list, Titus, received 10,745, while Stevenson, tfie lowest, received 15,644. Thus it is clear, that if seven whig natives had been se lected from the native ticket, and placed on that of the whigs, those seven men would have been elect ed, probably by more than two thousand majority, making a large allowance of one thousand for the violent uncompromising whigs. D*t the whig party learn wisdom from this result. They can never expect success if they consent to be ed by the nose by the Tribune clique. Anti-Kkktism.?One of the most remarkable fea tures of the recent election is the triumph ol anti rentism in several of the anti-rent districts, in the face of all the outrages which have been recntlyper jwtrated in Columbia and Delaware counties. Pub lic opinion in these districts is, it would appear, still 1 increasing in favor of the anti-renters against the landlords. In fact, anti-rentisni seems to he breaking up tlie democratic parly in these regions, and we should not be surprised to see the same feeling spread in the western part of the State, where vast tiacts of land are held by land companies; for in stance, the Pulteney estate and the Holland Land Company. The progress of anti-rentism is aston ishing The eflect of such a fact as that presented hi the last election will not be without great effect on < lovernor Wright relative to the two misguided men in Delhi jail, under sentence of death, on]the SShli of this month J* AsntOMAHi.K Movemkits.?The season now opening promises to be unusually gay in tins me tropolis. A cliange uppears to have taken place in the fashionable.circles, and the theatre and the ball room will he crowded with elegance and fashion public display and public occasions of enjoyment, taking the place of the private musical parties, the miWiu and of last winter. In the theatri cal and musical world, we have now a great combination of the most distinguished talent The Keans?Ole Hull?|N? Meyer?Miss Delcy?and a host of talent are now here. Vai.i;abi.k at Kt.m rtoNs.?The Potion Pott of yesterday lias the following: ? I'ulf. May be had at thin office at n rate cheap enough to ?atuly any committee." -lAv-'ftr* of BAfKHnmcv ?Th?

Home of the statements are almost in credible . for instance, that out of the number of 'J.XjO bankrupts there should he 168 w hose debts wero over f loo,'Hal. and I f over a million each. The whole amount ol indebtedness issued out by tke operations of the law I.- iches the enormous amount of one hundred aud thirty m.llioiis five huudted and eighty thousand dollars.

Ktnfuirer, whose schedule included over #200,000 ol debt, whilst his assets consisted of a tew old chairs and a table. The statement is, however, remarka ble, aud discloses in a very interesting and intelligi ble manner the state of society in this country as connected with bankruptcies. One hundred and twenty millions of indebtedness wi|ied otl at one sweep, in tins city alone ' This immense sum was the accumulation of years, and the way in which the vast indebtedness was incurred was generally by ex- 1 travagance in living and folly in speculation, it ' was eaten up and drank up, and worn and sj>ent in various ways, by parties who were enabled to go on Irotti year to year by running notes and paper money, and all that sort of thing, until they could not hold out any longer, and all hroke down in 1K57. Probably two-thirds of those in the list ot bank rupts were in a state ol insolvency for ten or fifteen years previous to their failure, and who can tell but at the present time there is just as much rottenness now in all those accounted rich in this metropolis ! ! We see the sume extravagance?the same folly?the same ex|>ensive mode of living. In another point ot view this statement is interesting. It the amount ot indebtedness was so great in the city of New York aloue, we may reasonably set down that of the whole country as at least five hundred millions.? And all this through foliy and extravagance. It is ' very true thtft houses were built?churches were built?ships were built?railroads were constructed, which still remain, but still there was an immense amount of ruin and destruction. The country is now in a very healthy condition, and any person who manages his utlairs with discretion,may readi ly make himself independent of easy in his circum stances. Hut no doubt we are commencing a new era, which, in ten or fifteen years, will create just as much indebtedness, perhaps, as that created by the fifteen years previous to the last great revulsion.

AtigtUi" made lier fifth abearance at the Park 'iu La Bayedei,-. Taking all the eircumstances into consideration, tiie inclemency of the weather, connected with the fact of iU beiug Satui Juy evening, which is proveibially the worit for theatrical* in New York, the house was re markably good. Madame Augusta met with an enthu siastic reception. The sylph like grace which tills her every motion, the airy lightness with which site trips over the stage, held the house in mute admiration until the grand trial dance, when the enthusiasm, which had been gatlieiiug among the audience, broke forth in a perfect cataract of applause. In this, all the beauties and fascinations which compose the diviue art of which Madame Augusta is so perfect u student, wore exhibited There was form kindled into life, for the sculptor, poetiy and music for the lover of these arts, and an exquisite grace and rapidity of motion pervading tha whole, which will ever win hearts and gain plaudits. At the dropping of the curtain, Madame Augusta was called out, and received the most rapturous applause. Mr Viulrews improves as Olifour, aud gave the music much better last night than he has 011 any previous oc casiou. The Unknown of Mr. Pearson we consider, on the whole, a creditable performance. The song, " Beats there a heart," and the duett with Miss Moss, of " O. Gauges' happy shore," were given with taste and spirit Miss Moss made a tolerable Ninka, and if sho could iid herself of certain very unbecoming motidns upon the stage, sho would become quite a favorite. Of the ? .>>/?< its ballet and chorus, we are sorry to say, we cannot speak in very high terms. Alter the opera, the capital petite comedy ot " Boots at the Swan" was performed As Jacob Karwig, Mr. Bass was irresistibly rich, nnd brightened the golden opinions which, as a comedian, lie lias won at the I'ark Mr. Uyott's performance ot Frank Frisky was also capitally done. Between the first and second acts of the petite comedy, Mad. Augusta appeared iu that fantastically wild, yet indescribably beaiitilul. Spauish dance of l.a Roinleja. Into this Mad Augusta threw the very soul of her lively gracefulness, nnd calloj down continued penis of applause from the whole house. (in Monday evening, the Keans, having returned trom their successful Southern tour, appear at the I'atk in Hamlet. Bowkky Thkatkk. ? Notwithstanding tho rain, the Bowery had an excellent house last night. The play of " Finest Maltravers" passed off with trial. J. It. Scott as Richard Darvil, drew down loud and frequent bursts o' applause. We have already spoken of him as oue of tho most versatile actors ou the stage, and he muiiitains his reputation. The drama of the " Idiot of the Shannon," in which Messrs. .Cony and Ulanchard sustain prominent characters, was well received, and the evening's enter' tainmeuls closed with tiie thrilling diama of " Black. Eyed Susan." To morrow evening Siiakspeare's tragedy of " Julius Caesar" will be presented ; Mr. Scott playing Marc Antony, and Mr. Davenport, Brutus. The cele' brated Rivers' family also make their lirst appearance The extraordinary and surprising feats of skill shown by these artistes, are calculated to astonish and bewilder every beholder. Tliey appear in a beautilul and new ballet, entitled "the " Knchanted Fountain," in which they will exhibit their singular feats of gymnastics, aerial cords aud splendid groupings of ancient statuary. The evening's pel lormances conclude with the drama of tho " Ko'.ilan Slave," in which Messrs. Cony and Blan chard, and their wonderful dogs Hector and Bruin per form. This is tho most magnificent bill presented this season, and will ensure an overflowing house. Madamk Al'oi sta.?This fair dansuctr is now engaged in preparing a new ballet, which will be brought out at tiie I'ark in a few days. A curious and somewhat piquant correspondence has taken place between manager Chip pendale of Baltimore, manager Pelby of Boston, and M. St. James, the husband of Madame Augusta, relative to engagements, terms and mode of payment of the fair dans t use. In the letter of M. St. James to Chippendale, he states, that " the want of liberality on the part of Messrs. Ludlow N. Smith, during the lirst visit of Madume Augusta to this country, was such as almost to preclude tho idea of an agreement between us at present, unless their views are considerably altered from what they were." Monsieur St. James then goes on to say, his wile is resolutely determined to avoid for the future the hea* vy losses she was subjected to by nearly all the mana gers witli whom she came in contact, during'her visit to the United States. Sho cannot consent to sacrifice her successes and benefits iu Europe, nor incur very heavy expenses in purchasing music (every ccore of operatic ballet or ballet tl'action amounting to almost $400) for splendid dresses, Sic., without receiving a fair remunera tion for her long toil and her incessant exertions. Ma dame Augusta, therefore, insists upon placing a person selected by herself in the box office of the theatre wbeie she is performing, who shall assist the treasurer in ma king up her proportion of the Dight's proceeds,which she is to receive at the end of the 1st act. For this purpose she will'ulso furnish her own tickets, stamped with her own suul. These terms, it appeals, were submitted to Mr. Pelby, manager of the National Theatre, Boston, who very unceremoniously and lacouically replied, that the " terms were outrageous, the conditions most insult ing," and he, therefore, "would have nothing to do with madame." This is certainly a very singular and funny affair. We should suppose .Madame Augusta has a perfect right to make her own terms, and get security for the perform ance of manugor's contracts iu all cases. But whether Managers wiO consent to any one's interfering with their Treasurer's accounts is their own business. Probably the true explanation of the difficulties which Madume Augusta labored under in obtaining ready and prompt payments from Managers for her arduous servi ces, is to be found in the fact that at the time of her for mer visit to this country, it was in a state of revulsion Banks had suspendod?States had suspended?Mer chants had suspended?and Managers of Theatres, in consequence of had houses, Sic. were also obliged par- I tially to suspend. Every thing at that time was going to ruin. But now things have changed?money is plenty? business is prosperous?theatricals are reviving?thea tres were never in a more flourishing condition. MadameAugusta.too, hasjvery much improved in force, and never looked more beautiful and captivating. Salaries in all theatres, we understand, are now prompt ly paid .according agreement, and we apprehend Augusta will lind no difficulty in obtaining her just demands ? ?She is deserving of success, and these difficulties will no doubt be amicably adjusted. Miss Bbamsox's Conckbt at Nibi.oY?Miss Josephine Bramson, a talented child of ten years, assisted hy her sister, aged seven, gives her farewell Concert on Tues day evening, at Niblo's Saloon ?on which occasion she wil lalso be assisted by Miss Wiudmuller, Mons. Louis Gibert, Mr. Austin Philips, and an orchestra comprising the first talent of the city, under the direction ot Mr George Loder? Mr. H. C. 'l'imm presiding at the piano i forte. The extraordinary talent displayed by this child ? who is said tr. play on the piano with all the rapidity, I tho precision and taste of an adult professor?is indeed remaikable. She certainly deserves a liberal patronage. Ukhi t or Mm. Valcxtiisk Mott, Jh.?The fashiona Mo circles of this city have been on the i/ut vice for some time past, in consequence of an intimation that was given out that this accomplished lady intended making her debut as a singer. Thuisday evening next is the time appointed, and from the exertions which are known to be making by her friends and admirers, to have her debut as successful as possible, there is ro doubt that she will t>e greeted by as great a number of the fash ionables as bus been assembled on any former cccasion in this city. Mrs. Mott has been living with her father in-law lot two years past, and the condition of her pri vate affairs, which we have nothing to do with, "Bi as signed us a reason for her taking this step.

He asked what is this question ' How does it stand w as not necessary to go .uto a history of its discovery and the rights of the different parties ol claimants. It was enough to say that the proper settlement ol its hoiin laries had been in dispute lor nearly lorty > ears.

He deprecated any alarm on tins subject, and alluJed to the excitement which bad been kindled at the south, and regretted the cause of it; it should be considered and discussed ... a , cool and calm manner. . . . He said that much of tho apoculation on this subject was but the exhibition ol grout natriotism on a small | scale, and that all such would tend to unsettle business, that threats and anticipations of war produced half a* much mischief a* war itself.

He wouTd adopt the motto of n former President ot the United States, and ask tor no'hing but what is right, while he would submit to no thing that was wrong, and he would not make any parti cular parade of patriotism for the sake ol effect. Mr Webster then alludod to the 1 unit, an attempt to repeal or alter which, it i. supposed, wi I be u.ade at the wming session o I Congress. How far it would succeed lie could not tell, but ho asked what we in Massachusetts could expect to gain by any change in the Uw^ot 14. He considered the great question to be, is the laboring ' in iu wellofl', are wages high, are the people in a good condition We have been referred by the locoloco party to the great manufacturing places of Lowell, and^ .Spring field and Dover, but lie would remark that if the tanfl should be destroyed, these places, and the rich manu facturers would not suiter the most; it was the shop manufacturers, the makers ot boots, and hats, and clothes, Stc who would suffer, and if the tarifl of 1H4 should he destroyed, not one of those who now lived by their la bors 011 the bench or at tho anvil, could exist a twelve month. Ho referred to tlie popular fallacy of au ad valorem duty being better and more e<|ual than a specific duty, and said that from the timo of Washington down to the present day, all our tariffs had resulted in an sveiage ail valorem duty of 34 per cent, and that according to the sliding horizontal scale of line trade, so much boasted of, so often spoken of in Kngland, it hail been demonstra ted that to tins day the tiiriifof Kngland produced an average ad valorem duty of forty-nine per cent. It was idle then to talk of an ail valorem duty of twenty per cent. Mr. Webster alluded to the separate organizations of the Liberty and the Native American parties. The former had voted against us at the last election, and by adhering to Mr. Biiney, had elected .Mr. I'olk, and se cured the annexation of Texas, which they professed to deprecate. The latter were bone of our bone, and flesh of our flesh; he asked what they expected to accom plish : they cannot elect their memheis of Congress, and he asked if they wanted to accomplish any thing that he had not striven to accomplish, if they would go further than lie in the cherished object of protecting America, and native American rights, within the limits' of the Constitution. (Some one in the crowd said, (food Native, Daniel.) Mr. Webster said, I think I am. I will go as lar as the farthest in the cause. lie said that every vote thrown on Monday next, lor any other than the whig candidates, wtuld deprive the whigs of so much power to accomplish tho wishes and objects of the native Americans ; that every man should vote conscientiously, and that although every one had a right 10 vote as he pleased, he had no right, more than a piror who gives a verdict on his oath, to vote contrary to what he knew to be for the support ol true principles.

A Untitle n nil i?iu-lttQ Knflt*?>n?l> We havr received a printed leitrr from tii* 1I<>p 3. A. Douglass lo A. Whitney, Esq., ot this city, dated Quincy, Illinois, Oct. 15th, 1845, relating to the project ot Mr. Whitney lor a railroad through Oregon to the Pacific Ocean. Thia is a curious and very interesting document, containing a good deal of sound sense and philoso pliy. We have no doubt the time will conn* when some pluuwill he adopted tor a continuouu line ot railroads from the Atlantic to the Pacilic Ocean The olan ol Mr. Whitney, and the suhstitute ol Mr. Douglass, are now both before the public, and others will, no doubt, tie submitted lo tiie next Congress, for their consideration iiud action We have made the following abstract ot the letter lor the henelit ol our readers:?Mr. Douglass, alter relerring to the proposed line of railroad through l<ppsr Canada to Detroit, where it will connect with the Central Railroad of Michigan, across the peninsula, in the direction of Chicago, ami the steps recently taken to ensure the completion ol the New York an J Krie Railroad, which wilt strike the l.ake at a point near the Pennsylvania line, and connect with the Iiostou ami Portland line at New York, says these roads may also he continued to Chicago, and thence to tho Mississippi. The first objection, therefore, to Mr. Whitney's plan, is his making the starting point Milwaukee instead of the more natural and direct one from Chicago '.o the South Pass of the llocky Mountains. Mr. Douglass next passes to the means proposed by i Mr. Whitney for carrying into effect his views, and rnen ; tions ?1st, his demand lor a grant of laud, sixty miles l wide, and stretching from Lake Michigan to the Pacific Ocean. This grant would amount to one hundred undj'orty-fourthousand square miles,or 92,ItiO.OOO acres The cost of the road is estimated at $60,000,00(1, to which $16,000,000 is added for repuiiH, making a total expendi ture of $06,000,000. To meet this sum, Mr. Whitnev asks for 9-2,100.000 acres ot land, which at ouc dollar and | twenty-five cents an acre,would make $116,200,000. De I ducting from this sum (says Mr. Douglass) the $06,000, 000, which you estimate as tho aggregate cost of con struction and repaiis, and you have the snug little sum Oi $00,200,000, as your individual profits, to compensate you for your time and trouble in superintending the work, lie is, therefore, of opinion that " tho scheme is too magnificent?the trust too great- the grunt of lands too extensive and the power over the rights and inteiosta of the people, states, territories and government, too monstrous to he confided to any citizen, no matter how virtuous, " enlightened and patriotic." Besides, Mr. Douglass thinks the plan is not feasible - it would lie difficult to obtain this immense giant ol land from Con gross, and secondly, to procure the assent of the States and territories through which it would extond, to the establishment oi such a tremendous engine of power within their limits. But passing over these obstacles, ho does not think Mr. Whitney would tie able to construct the road Besides, it is proposed to withhold the lands granted from sale or settlement for the present?to raisH the money to completo the work ou the pledge ol the lands : and as tli i work progresses, make sales on the line of that part which shall havu been completed to pay the interest ou previous loans and obtain menus for con tinuing operations. The effect of this would he to post pone tiie peopling of the country?to exclude all inhabi tants and improvements within thirty miles of the route on either side -and to keep tiie whole line a snvage wil derness until the road should have been constructed. Mr. Douglass proposes, thoretore, us a suhstitute for Mr. Whitney's plan,tlmt the Oregon territory be established, extending from the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific. That tho territory of Nebraska be established, extend ing from the western borders of Iowa and Missouii to Oregon. That the route ot the proposed railroad he immediately surveyed and located from Lake Krie or the Ohio to tho Pacific. That Congress grant to eucli ol the Territories, Iowa, Nebraska, and Oregon the alternate tertians of the public lands for a reasonable distance on each side ol the line of the road, and also to the States through which the route may pass, grants of public lands. All grants to be made on the ex press condition, that tho proceeds he applied to the con struction of the road; anil, also, on the further condition, tion, that the United States mnils, troops, supplies, and munitions of war, shall be lorever transported over said toad free ofcharge. These aro the principal features of the proposition of Mr. Douglass, lie adds : The line of the road being located, the caravans of emigrants would fo'low its course, from tiie desire to sottle in its vicinity, and avail themselves of the advantages of the apprecia tion of the land in value, and the facilities it would lire sent for markets. All the vacant lauds would he taken up and improved, and thus we would soon have a conti nuous line ol settlements from the Mississippi to the Pa cific, whose interests and necessities would alike call for the construction of the road. Brooklyn lntelllKCiico, Occasional Furors.?The best reporter* in the world ?and more especially those who seek most earnestly and industriously to do their duty to the newspapers with which they arc connected must necessarily make occasional urrois in their statements, incidental to their unavoidable confidence in the representations of indivi duals placed in high official public stations. If an acci dental mistake ba made?however unimportant and tri lling in its character?a set of jealous and envious jour nalists?and small potato publishers?are always found ready to grumble, complain, and carp; in the vnin be lief that they can, by such ridiculous and Utopian schemes, muku for themselves credit, capital, and fame. Those brief and hastily digested expressions ate in duced by some ill-natuicd and illiberal remarks which have been made iu consequence of u paragraph which appeared in this paper yosteiday, stating thut General U. B. Lamar, Ex-President of Texas, had purchased pro perty in Brookly n, and had become a permanent resi dent ot the city. It appears that the buyer of the houses and lots which wore sold on Friday last was Guise II. Lamar of Savannah, a southern millionaire, and nut the distinguished soldier and statesman whom we named in our original report. It may not he impioper to add that the information upon which our statement was predica ted was received from one of the most Vdnorablo, vene rated, and popular citizens of King's county. A Plkasino Incident.?At tho election on Tuesday last, the first district poll of tho Fourth Ward was held in a church, far away from all pluco* where refreshments could conveniently he procured. The amiable lady oh'oro iter Oaks, being informed of the dilemma in which the inspectors and clerks were placed, furnished them with a sumptuous repast; in return for which they sent to her an eloquently couched epistle, thunking her for her gen erous attentiou ta their wants, and expressive of their gratitude for hor well timed consideration. Coai. Dkalehs.?There is much difficulty and dissen sion among the people of Brooklyn and the coal mer chants of tue tamo goodly plaee, growing out of an al leged attempt on the part of the latter to make excessive and exorbitant charges for their commodities. The only way to correct this evil will he, for some enterprising dealers in the city of New York, to make offers to the householders of this city, to supply them with this neces sary article ol winter consumption, at lair and reasona ble charges.
