The city ia very healthy. j Benton ha* uever courted the favor of the i Freeaoil leaders of the Free estates. Houston j ha.�; that while Benton advocated the election j of Buchanan us the only security for the 1 whole Union, and denounced hi� own ssn-in-law for becoming the candidate of a party whose success was certain to result in disunion and ruin to the Republic, Houston was leading off Ills own and other States on tbe aide iasue or Know Nothlngism, and counseled a meek submission to Fremont, anticipating his election, and seeming to prefer it to that of Buchanan, whom he now affects to support To carry the contrast still farther-while Benton ia discouraging the agitation of tbe slavery question in hie own State, Houston is re-opening it in his ; while Benton ia opposed lo the restoration of the Missouri Compromise, Houston proposes to re-enact it; while Benton is disposed to sustain the principles of the Constitution and the decision*of the 8apr*m� Court of the United States, Hoaston ia virtu ally denouncing both, and would subvert both, had he the power, if we may believe his own public speeches Of this tendency of bis avowed Bentiments, he pretends to be igno rant; but it i� bo plain that all who run may read, as we have shown in former articles Whether there ia a Freesoil party iu Texas, may be an open question, but we all know that there is such a party at the North, and that riouston is one of its favorites-that he la one of the few public men living South of Mason A Dixon's Line, of whom that party apeak no evil If there is bucIi a party in this State, we may be sure that it will affil liato with its Northern ally in sympathy and support for Houston And we may be equally sure that the party of the South and tbe Constitution will unite as one man to oppose and destroy Ills dangerous and demoralizing in fluenco We have conversed with several of our citiaena who were in New Orleans at tbe time of Gen. Walkers landing there, were acquainted with him amd talked with him on the sob ject of hla Nicaraguan enterprise; we have seen numbers who were present and beard his speech ou Saturday last, who witnessed bia reception and all the demonstrations, and they all concur in tbe opinion that it will not be long before Walker will again be on bis way to Nicaragua, with a force and with supplies of everything, sufficient to overpower all bis enemies. They aay tbe enthusiasm in his favor la unbounded and universal-that it is spontaneous, and manifested alike by all classes HVa speech, tbty say, surprised every body. He showed himself to possess a degree of ability and power* of oratory altogether unlocked for. He waa continually interrupted with snthnsiaatic applause by the immense assemblage that filled tbe street in every^di-reetioB Be waa cool and collected through, ont, neither disconcerted, nor even apparently affected by tbe general excitement Whether borne on tbe shoulders of the maases, who took him up almost by violence, even before his feet bad touched the levee, on bia arriral, or whether addressing, from an elevated plat form, a crowd of twenty thousand persons, hla features possessed the same calm, reflective expression. Be showed ia hi* speech that he bad first been invited to Nicaragua by the people themselves-that he had not forced himself npon them-that, whatever authority ha exercised bad been voluntarily bestowed upon-him by taesa-that It was the people themselves who had changed their government and elected their ofleers-that tie Nicaragnana were satisfied with tbe government they had eatabliab- : o . Lahadie, and Francis I). Allen, Galveston A considerable change seems to have ci.mc over the the business community of New York, with reference to the Southern trade, so far as I have been able to learn, from the few busincas bouses 1 have visited When I was here, some fifteen years nun, the Bouth was in bad odor, and nothing would go down but the Western trade, which *n* sought aftei with the greatest avidity Several hou�es that bad been doing a Southern trade, complained severely of overdue account*, protested notes, and a general want of |ninetuiil ity in meeting payments, and many ot them were curtailing their accounts rioutb. to go more extensively in the Western business Tbe great mania for land speculattops in the West, owing to the unprecedented rise in prices, has induced many of the Western mor-cbanta to invest their money due the New Yorkers, in lands, or loan it out, at from three to six per cent, per month, ou real estate security, letting their New York nccounts sliitul over, which are only drawing aeven per cent, per annum interest, and ihey consequently now stand in a worse position than the South ever did, as these Investments are mostly permanent, whereas, the failure on the part of the South, to meet her engagements, hitB only arisen from a failure in the crops, whioh sel-4 dom .ocean two years in succession Bo far aa 1 have heard,Texas has paid up well during the past year, and there is an evident disposition here, to cultivate a large business this summer, with our merchants, who come on to buy gooda. A great many changes have occurred, among the houses doing business with Texas, which 1 will refer to In a subsequent letter, when I have been more among them. Numerous removals, up town, have taken place, since I was last here, and a large por tion of the wholsale business has now centred west of Broadway, which was formerly done in the streets running parallel with, and adjacent lo tbe East river The news, during the week, has uot embraced anything very exciting, and tho Bur-dell murder case, which engrossed the public mind, while under investigation, the preceding week, has now ceased to be n, topic of conversation. Murders have become so common in New York, that an ordinary case excites but little attention ; but where uuy ol the parties concerned have any pretentions to respectability, or belong to the upper-tendom of so ciety, as has sometimes boen the case, the whole community become aroused, and devour with avidity every item connected with the crime, no matter how disgusting in its details, to which the city press pander with the most barefaced Impudence, filling their column* with scenes of debauchery and vice, to cater for tho vitiated taste of a depraved pnblic, and put money in their pockets by the in creased circulation of their papers. The Herald on Friday, conies out with uii article. "New Method of Administering Criminal Justice,'' and after discanting, nt some length on the cnoimities of the ciiines committed recently in New York, and the supinctiess of her citizens in taking in-live measures to bring the criminals to Justice, the proprietor offers the sum of $5000 euch, in eight different cases ol murder, for auch inlormation as will lead to the detection ami conviction uf the implicated, and $1000 each, for information concerning several parties who barelici-ii missing for some timo: besides which he offers us a gratuity $7,500 dollars to any country lawyer who will come up to the city nml clear the dockets of the Criminal Courts Here is a pretty field for speculation, as well as a pretty specimen of the morality of the Kmpirc City Numerous anniversaries lciv.- been In Id during the past week, which have brought a large influx of visitorB from the country - After the close of the American Anti-Slavery meeting referred to in my last, the New York Antf-Slavery society held its anniversary meeting in tbe same rooms, on the evening following, and was addressed by Uurrisou, Wendell Phillips, a mulatto girl, and several others of that ilk The radical abolitionist (under the lead of Lewis Tuppan) held also their anniveraary, ou the next evening, which aays the Herald, ''was enlivened by a brilliant speech from Fred Douglass (black i who abused the Supreme Court, lauded the insurrectionary attempts made at the South lust summer, and called the Little Ciant a scamp who he wished bad another name."
