An article from the Evening Star, in favor of bringing the water of the Croton over the Harlem Kiver by means of a high bridge of massive and cost - V construction, found its way into our pa per of yesterday. Lest our readers should suppose that this was a selection oi ours, we take occasion to say that it was inserted without our knowledge. To us it seems that the construction of a high bridge would be a piece of extravagance for which there is no apology. We have already argued the question at some length in this journal. For the present we take leave to direct the attention of our readers to the reflections in the Journal of Commerce ol this morning, in answer to those who contend that a high bridge is necessary for the accommodation of the multitude of vessels whicti may hereafter pass through the chan nel of Harlem River.

It one might believe the whig papers, every public man and every press in the de mocratic party is mercenary and venal, ac tuated by the lust of lucre or of office. This is a grave charge, and naturally awakens indignation. N But while we repel this false accusation, we should not overlook the fact, that some of the whig presses have, in one respect at least, behaved with great equity. II they have charged their adversaries with merce nary motives, they have brought the same charge against their own party. They have treated us no worse than they treat each ether. While they strive to make the world believe that we are rogues, they acknow ledge themselves to be so. We are about to transfer to our columns two ol these precious confessions' It is well known that there are in this city two whig parties one favorable to the claims of Mr. Webster, and the other to those ot Mr, Clay. To the lormer belongs the New York American, and to the latter the Evening Star. First, hear what the American says of the Star and its party. It is protesting against appeals made for a party purpose to the prejudices and controversies of past years. From the - V. V. Anurican of Monday. ' Yet it is not to be denied that there is a class of persons, and that not by any means inconsiderable or uninfluential, that is accessible to eucb appeals. This class is made up, for the most part, of those soldiers ot fortune.wbo, fighting always tor pay first, are. of course, liable to be found at different limes on different aides who, knowing nothing and caring nothing about principles, are yet specially soucuout about what Major Dalgetty calls " the provant," or, in the mora inteliisible expression of Governor Mar - cy, " the spoils,1 and are willing at all time to ta&e up any name, adopt any head, and swear by nv shibboleth that will ensure to them the booty. The Star understands the value, and sympathises with the motives, ol these mercenaries, anu navinj diaaurjointments of its own to avene. it deals large. Iv in the tort of appeal to names and prejudices of J . . . . rr t i n ii uri.;M which we nave oeen speanin", anu cuh iuui i w; doctrines. To such a degradation of the high prin cinles and hieh aima of the Vhi party, we cannot even by silence, assent, and hence the remarks we herewith submit." Frankly said, and justly but the Star meets the charge with as positive a declaration that the whigs of the party led by the American have no other object in view but the rewards of office. Here is the picture given by the Star of that party. From the Star of last evening. "This is small game, it is true, but these gentle, men always play a smalt game ihey brag high but seldom win ; and when the American talks in a style so lordly and high - minded ot their disinterestedness of their true love of principle and of country of their absence trom all motives ot selfishness of their attachment to principles and not to men, and accuse others ol selfishness, we, who have served an apprenticeship ot some twenty vears with them, could tell a very different Btory, founded on facta. " They are a fine, clever, pleasant, jovial, gentlemanly set ol fellows, and you caw always get on smoothly and comlortably with them when you allow ihem to have everv thins their own way. They are the tight ones to make Governors and Presidents, ettins at a table with their iced champaigne : and although they cannot elect their men, or do the fighting, or organize, or deviso, or execute, or canvass, or labour or arouse, animate and excite, yet when the battle is over, and the victory won by the people, there is no class so prompt in sounding Ihe trumpet aim claiming me rewarc, anu yui nicy ium of disinterested services, and purity of motives, and an utter abhorrence ot the "spoils" ! !" The whigs last evening held a meeting aMason - ic Hall, at which they were addressed by Mr. Pren tiss, a member of Congress from Mississippi. The call, in compliance with which the assembly was convened, was addressed only to whigs. According ly sueb whigs as Gideon Lee.Sirauel Swartwout and others lately known by the name of conservatives but now duly incorporated into the whig ranks, at tended. These two were made vice Presidents of the meeting. One or two of the morning papers give a report of Mr. Premise's speech, which, if it be anything like a fairtranecript of what he said, is not much to his ere. dit as a p ublic speaker. It is a tissue ot light and in coherent rattle about a battle to be fought for the credit system, in which the fnendd of the adminis tration are the assuilants, and the opposition enga ged in the defence, interspersed with much praise of the same credit system by which we suppose he means the fatal facilities of speculation which ex isted in 1336, and two or three years previous. It is not very strange that Mr. Prentiss should praise what, according to common report, he has made use of so extensively. He look occasion, also, to pro nounce an eulogy on his brother speculator, N. Tallmadge. The Express states that the letter from Wisconsin, the blunders of which we exposed yesterday, was not first published in that paper, but was cut from the St. Louis Bulletin. It is some satisfaction to know that the hoax waa not contrived in New York. Frocrbss of Specie Patments. The Nashvill Banks will resume cash payments on the first of January next, and it is believed that the Banks of Tennessee generally will agree on the same day. The Kentucky Banks were to have resumed on Monday last, according to the Louisville Journal. The Banks of Ohio, Indiana and Illinois probably resumed on the same day. Arrival of Troops. The third company of the " Tburth regiment of artillery, under command ofMa - jor Gardamer, arrived last evening from Charleston, in the brig Cordelia. Licuts. Miller, Phelps, Gregory, Pembertsn, and Dr. Holmes are also passengers in the C. The Graat Western has 70 passengers engaged ; she takes out 100 tons of cotton, and a considerable amount of other freight. The series of articles which we subjoin from the New Era, are well drawn up, and we understand that they have received the assent and signature ot ments of troops, outrages ten times more atroc ious I many of our citizens who have hitherto shown them - wouwi be perpetrated unchecked. 1 o say notning j j ndj(rerCnt to political controversies, but who the riots at Nottingham and Bristol, though arising have declared themselves ready to lend their zealous out of an excitement very sitnilur to thai now pre - support to a party by which such principles are car - vailing in America on the suhjeel ol slavery, we rjed out.

The interest o! the money winch will have been saved, will pay the expense some hun dreds of times over. As to the canal boats, one would think lhat bv Passing under a hundred bridges ten feet high, they roust have learned to stoop sufficiently to get under one sixty leei nigu. In lact Ihe low bruise furnishes the most perfect ac commodation for alUhe cralt which is ever likely to nass that wav. " The leeal point it is very easy to magnify. 'An arm of the tea' is a legal phrase of vast importance, eoual to' navigable waters.' mere was once an arm of the sea which stretched itself along in all its navisablo importance, through the whole extent of Canal street, and for aught we know the obsttuc - structions' of that arm may one day be proved to have been an infraction of the Federal Constitution but we do not expect it. There must be a little common sense mingled with our logic. It tiariem River were so very important a navigable water,' j it Is singular that so much money should nave been expended in digging a canal along bv its side to fa cilitate the passage ot boats, through which, alter an no boats wished to pass. " Uul tu put an end to all controversy, we are content to have the iron pipes under the river, anu then that arm of the sea will continue extended and uncovered in all its strcugth. This thought was no doubt present to the Commissioners and their engi neers. There may be difficulties about it which we do not think of, but it strikes us lhat il would be quite as easy and as sate as the low bridge, and we have no doubt mst as unsatisfactory to most ot tne gentlemen who are so strenuous tor the integrity of Harlem river." Elections. Alabama. We have no fresh returns from this state. The Express of this morning claims a federal gain of 61 in the two counties heard from. The democratic gain in these counties is - 294. General Bates, the highly popular candidate of the opposition, and present member of t!ia house, is beaten now by Toulmin, dem. and a change wrought in the whole district. Kentucky. The state election is over, and we have a spec of intelligence from the Lexington Ga zette. The result in Fayette county seems to have been an entire change. Larkin B. Smith, Esq. and William Rodes, Esq., have succeeded in getting their election. The Gazette, remarking upon this circumstance, says " When it is borne in mind, that the whole or ganisedwhig party the caucus nomination the dictators who have for vears governed the count v ol ayette, have been deteated, signally deleated, must bean admonition so pomted so monitory. that it will not. probably be soon forgotten. 4 tiad the result favorable to the whigs. there would have appeared in handbill form, Whig Victory." "Great Whio Victory," &c. But we scorn to exult over a party who keep them selves in odour by bragging." The result in other Counties is thus dated by the same Journal, though the politics of the elected are not given : ' There is but little doubt of Clark's election as Senator from Jessamine and Woodford. Pratt is probably eleccted from Scott and Harri son. TUB DAISY.

The ability and integrity of Governor Marcy, Senator Wright, and the Hon. Henry Vail, representative in Congress were noticed in a highly complimentary manner. Madison County. - A meeting of the young democrats of the town of Lenox, in Madison county, was held on the 7th inst., to choose delegates to the county convention. This duty being pcrtormed, resolutions expressive of confidence in the adminis. tration of Mr. Van Buren, were agreed to, and the talents and services of Senator Wright and Gover nor Marcy noticed with every matk of approbation.

Catcci County. The democrats of this county met in Convention a few days since, and adopted resolutions full of patriotic sentiments. Like the democrats in other counties, the meeting expressed the fullest confidence in President Van Buren, Go vernor Marcy, Silas Wright, and the Hon. W. H. Noble, the member of Congress from that district. Senator Tallmadge waa denouncedtlor his destitution of lhat political honesty and integrity which lit a man for a place in the councils ot the nation. Tho Convention was in favor of a continued separation between the Government and the Banks, and averse to a United States Bank. Opinions were embodied in a series ot resolutions, evincing a determination to maintain the landmarks which separate the de. ing itself." Overdoing a thing they call 'a hunch back making a bow." A spendthrift they compare to "a rocket," which goes off at once. Those who expend t'leir charity on remote objects, but neglects tiietr family, are said to " hang a lantern on a pole, which is seen alar, but gives no light below." Autographs. Persons of some distinction arc often pestered by unknown correspondents with applications for their autography. Jules Janin, who is the literary editor of the Paris newspaper called Journal des Delats, lately took an ingenious method of compensating himself for the trouble given by such an application. Prince Metternich requested his autograph, and the journalist sent him the following: "I acknowledge the receipt from M. de Metternich of 20 bottles Johannisbergh, for which 1 teturn infinite thanks. Jules Janin." The prince in return doubled the quantity, and sent him fifty mocracy from the federal aristocratic party of this I bottles. . . , r . i .1 ' j . . j .

Philadelphia Pennsylvanian. the general government, trom the President down wards ; opposing all increase of executive patronage and power, whether by direct or indirect means, and whether by lax construction of the Constitution, or by unconstitutional laws ot Congress. 6. That we, therefore, oppose the depositing of the public funds in banking institutions, where the can be used for private purposes, by discounts loans, or otherwise, and by which a vast monied pa. tronage, ot the no powerful, corrupt, and danger ous kind, would be indirectly placed in the hand of the c - xccutivc. 7. That we, therefore, rely upon the wisdom and patriotism ol our Representatives in Congress make such a law for the sife keeping of ihe public funds as shall divest the Executive of discretionary power respecting the disposal ot them, and prescribe the places and the amounts in they shall be deposited for public uses alone, and also the duties and responsibilities ol the Treasury officers to whose receipt and custody they may be entrusted. And we, therefore, approve of the recommendation to this effect, made by President Van Buren in his message to Congress. 8. That ne, therefore, opposed to a United Slates or National Bank, of any kind, and whether, I'. Ii a capital of one million or of fifty millions ; believing it to be a dangerous aggregation of monied power, which a judicium regulation of the Constitutional Currency, by Congress, wouid render unnecessary either for lorcigu or domestic exchanges, but which, in its connection with the State, would be subv ersive both of the purity and the Indepen dence ot the tjjvcrnrnent. 9. That we, then - fore, approve of the great demo cratic principle, of the equality ol rights in the busi ness ol banking, as in every other kind ot Dullness ; and, although, wc think it but iust and expe dient to the safety of vested interests, that banks issuing notes under existing charters, should be sustained by the common consent and encouragement of the community, in their efforts to maintain specie payments, and to fulfil all their legal obligations, we nevertheless approve of that law of this State which, by authorizing free hanking, virtually deprives them ol ihe exclusive or monopoly privilege with which they were previously invested. In declaring this, however, we du not express our concurrence in all ihe detailed provisions of that law, nor our confidence in its practical operation, but merely in the equity and practical utility ol its anti - monopoly principle. 10. I hat we, therefore, approve of the gradual in crease of the metallic or constitutional currency ot the Republic, not only as the means of accommo dating the retail business classes of the community, but also ot lessening the burdens ot virtual taxation imposed on the laboring classes by the undue ex tension of paper issues. 11. 1 hat we, therefore, approve of the gradual suppression ot all notes ol a lower denomination than those which laws of Congress, now in being, prospectively require in payment ol Government dues believing lhat the people and the government oi the people should equally be put in possession of as extensive a metallic currency as the wants ot the increasing population may require, and as the progress ol lime can secure. And we approve of the enlightened policy of the late and present administrations of the General Government, lor effecting this most expedient and salutary object. 12. That we are, therefore, decidedly and irre concilably opposed to the principles and projects of the bcdcral Whigs ot the present day, they being the same as they were in 1798 and 1312, under the advocacy of Alexander Hamilton, John Adams, Harrison Gray Otis, llufus King, and Daniel Webster, when they were so faithfully and triumphantly resisted by the united Democracy. 13. That wc, therefore, approve of regular nominations, and all other usages of the Democratic party, which we believe to be just in principle and honorable in practice. Of these usages, we deem it one ol the most just and expedient that the official patronage accruing to the party, should in ai! cases be conferred on known, true and faithful democratic republicans, who, with qualifications tor official duty equal to others, have the additional and p re j on - derating recommendation oi purity ot principle ind fidelity of service. 14. Finally, that we will, therefore, support the candidates lor Governor and Lieutenant Governor of this State, lhat shall be nominated by a Demo cratic Republican State Convention, and also the candidates lor Fresioent and Vice President, that shall be nominated by a Democratic Republican National Convention. These are the principles and measures of the Democratic Republicans ol 1 ammany Hall, and we, the unde. - signed, approve of them, and will unite our most vigorous efforts to maintain tUetn Mississippi Banks. The banking capital of Mis sissipp. appears to amount to over 510,000,000, ac cording to the "Spirit of Kosciusko," published at Kosciusko, Mississippi. The Louisville Advertiser in noticing this en mous amount of capital, observes "It would appear that the present amount of bank capital m Mississippi exceeds forty millions. The .., ii is oaiu, is incomplete, siaiiungas it is. 1 nese fifty banks have about five hundred officers. Their expenses amount to nearly three hundred thousand dollars. 1 heir loans probably exceed fifty millions on which Ihe planters are paying interest, which may be averaged at eight percent. It thus appears that the banking interest draws five millions of dollars per year Iroin the people of Mississippi 'and lhat vast sum is paid for a rotten currency ; for the uau oi money irom men who have no money to lend I ! J For Mississippi twenty millions of real banking capital wonld be entirely sufficient ; and we may iiiticiuic expec. to see most ot her present instilu tions go by the board' when required to pay spe. cie. The new Union Bank, with its capital of tif teen millions, it honeolly managed in the com mencement, will assist ... rulilin? the State of a larpi number ot the present rag - shops, and put an end to me wnoiesaie system ol swindling tha planters, which lias been in full and successful operation lor the last fifteen months."

There is not a schoolboy in the L'nion that does not know thai the " old federalists of Connecticut and Maryland" stuck to their party and principles through thick and thin during President Jackson's administration, and did every thing in their power to dtf eat the democratic candidate. The Courier may endeavor to identify General Jackson's adininis'ration as a federal one, but Ihe people of this country are too enlightened at this day to believe any such humbug.

Let our democratic friends make themselves acquainted with the facts stated by Duncan, and like David of old with a few small pebblestones of truth they will be able to slay this mighty whig Goliath and overthrow the enemies ol equal rights.
