NEW YORK HERALD. ] ?w York, gntwrday, March ?, IMA The Great Merchant*' M retlng?Upheaving of Moral SentimentThe merchant'* meeting, held at the Exchange yesterday aturnoon, is more than we expected ;n this dirty, degenerate, mean, sneaking, co*t< mpti ble age of the world. We rejoice, and are glad In thia gteataud noble meeting, we have at length the beginning of a new era in.the moral* of politics and popular government. The glorious revolution ib moral sentiment against the demoralization ?f party politics and bankrupt speculating politician*, baa begun in the very centre of the Sodom and CJomorrah that produced tbe evil?m the midst ot Wall street, itself, surrounded with all the nn ans of cor ruptioo, and the panders to political licentiousness. The tone and sentiment* and idea* of this meeting break upon u* like a - light from heaven, A spark of that cWmtisl fire With sng.ls shared-by Allah given Toliftiieni laiih our low desire. There i* no man-worship?no idolatry of politici<j?*? no bending (he knee to the Baal ol human glory?no l ard cider orgiea?no coon-akin revelryno hickory humbug. The proceeding# of thia glorious meeting breathe a manly independence of all party- all power?all place?and a devotion only to measures and principles for their merit* and public utility. It ia the first time in <t aeries of years, that wa have seen or heard of a meeting, so coble in its bearing?so independent ol power or party?ao moral in its tone and purposes. It was a large and respectable meeting, too, in point of numbers and character?and was particularly free from the reproach of being conducted by mean nod miserable politicians. It is the voice of thepeo pie, speaking in tones to Congress, that will bp reverberated from every city, and every town of the republic. It is the dawn of a new aud a better age, rising far beycnd the ahuc'ilea of party and faction Thanks to the mister-spirits that stirred it up. Iu the meantime, let the movement proceed. Let he honest mechanics and working men, in every ward of the city, get up such a meeting?and let it be a great mass meeting uptown?amoral meeting in every true of the term. Let every town and hamlet of tne republic do the same?and Congress will no longer be a shame and a reproach to the country, throughout the civilized earth. A moral revolution has began?let it go ahead. Morals or tub Wall Street Press.?We find the following exquisite bit of morality iu the "New York American" of last evening, conducted by Charles King, who is considered the oigan aud cynosure of a Limit clique of good society of superior morals and manners in this city, numbering about 150 persons, including brokers and beggars: ? [From the New York American.] Thi Gaieties asp Moral, or thi Court or Kbasce are thus described by a Faris correspondent. The occasion was a fancy dress ball, giver by the Duke of Orleans, at the Pavilion Mrrtan, that portion of thepaJaceoi the TuilUtiti occupied by the Heir apparent. We pass over the first part, which, while the King and Queen were present, w as orderly?wepasa over the sup per, too, except to say that the writer says, that before snpper the guest* were so thoroughly imbued with the spirit of the Carnival, that M. Thiers found it necessary to withdraw with hi* young wife, amidst aim oat audible reproaches for his prudery. The tablet were atiaadouod to resumatha dance : and now tho I'aris letter speaks-.? * The dance recommenced, and with fury. The Princess, Maaars. Jeinviile and d'Aumalc, with Messdames LiarJiere, and Hoahat. danced the cancan, a sort of cacAuca, danced ontaida the gates of Paris, not without grace, but very free in ita attitudes. At first, this caused some scandal or some appearance of it; little by little, however, people became bolder, and the quadrille waa enlarged. The spectators pressed round, unJ filially, to accommodate those behind, the men in front of the circle eat down on the flooi. The freedom of the dance becoming licentious,the whirling trails af the ladies brushed the faces ol the gentlemen, all but extended sn the floor, and their indiscreet hands triced, in some instances, that upq.i which Henry VIII of England founded an order of knighthood. Some ladies seemed to consider that quito funny; others, in iudignation quitted the apartment. Among the daneera were tho Queen of 8pain, Mrs. T . weuring the diamonds that belonged to the church of Toledo, and Madame Cataiiora: there were, moreover, two young Spanish girls, who spoke of a dance sometimes practised in their country, and which terminates by the gentleman raising his partner en his hands. This seemed difficult, but it was tried?at first with little success?afterw ards with better ; but the attempt led to indescribable confusion: the feet slipped from the hands?the hands from the feet, fc:. Ac. But, it is asked, where were the husbands all thia time 7?eating and drinking,or talking with the Dukeof Orleans. Be it so,bnt they were certainly very imprudent husbands. B]?aking of Madame de Contades,! must apprise you that it ia ail the fashion of the women of the fauxbourg St. Oermain, tlhe old nobility,) to smoke light cigars.? Tho whr.le fau.xbouig smokes, and the prettiest A?udoir? are redolent of tobacco. Thia mania ia making desola ting progress The "New York American" and the King clique were among the tirvt in Wall street, (hat raised tho hoe and cry about the " immorality of the New Y'ork Herald," because we published innocent and graceful description*of balls and sotrrss, Are. We now confidently appeal to the public?to the whole American public?if there ever appeared any article in the Herald, from the first day of its existence up to this time, that could approach, ia the remotest decree, the freedom, the immorality, the indecency, the licentio .-jesj of this astounding and extraordinary article. No one in New York?no one can? ever dare to impeach our private morals?the blatneleasu'.w of ear private life?the honesty and integrity of all ?st private relations?but in order to deceive the public, and to gratify malignity ot rivals, the outcry a as raised against the morals of the Herald, by such miserable beings as King & Co. A Lttle while longer and justice will be done?the conspirator: will be dragged to day-light?and the infamy of our enemies will be punished a* they deserve. We are in no hurry. The hypocrisy "of the Wall street pre* will soon reeeive its reward. The Svaist. Dnood?l.MriiCvraiwr or the Newsi'ai'ek Pitcs* ?During the lust f?-w weeks, four new daily papers have started in thi> city, and probably as maoy weekly. This is the usual quantity that generally unfold themselves every spring?but while they increase in numbers, how are they in quality 1 In one of thes-e papers, published yee'.erday, wc found the Collector of this port called a "liar"?the h.ev Bishop Hughes a " false villain," and jamesGordnn Bennett, " Jamie," and " a foreigner ." This, we presume, is considered force, talent, wit aci refinement. How many such pru ts will last the year out T Since we started the Herald, we have seen nearly half a hundred newspapers <?pr.ng up *.&<; die off, like the grasshopper of the summer?una it is probable we shall see double the number of e auiples before we reach the verge of oJd an*, t'cry v*iii, silly blockhead, who can write ? paragraph, ihitik* lie can manage a daily paper, in all itt varioas deta.U. They fu.d their level by letting them try it. t?minii fuv"?*??.?The prospects in New York are increasing every day. The beet symptom is the increas*; of advertising in the cash papers The derangement of the currency and fail of prices, in Baltimore and Philadelphia, will drive all solvent merchant!, here.

Mr. S'.ron?, one of our oldest merchants, took hie scat amid greet applause. Aid. Wneelwright then nominated the following irenlleinen to act Vice PaMinairr*. Anton O. Phelps, N.

The Chairman thenjrose and said, "Gentlemen I will now introduce to yon, Mr. Hugh Maxwell,who will read to yon some resolutions." Mr. MAxwxLL.roae.and was received with great applause. He.aaid Mr. CutimiN a.ib FslliW CiTizasa:?Having boon apprised but yesterday oi the aljects sad character of this meeting, and having received the resolution* which I hold in my hand and which 1 shall have the honor .of Humming 10 yourcensiuersueu, wnu iun iniucn vi ?cveral resectable gentlemen that 1 ihouM take part ia the proceeding! of tbii meeting, I con Id not regard it aa eonaiatent with my duty aaan American citizen interested with you in the well tre of our common country, to decline a duty which at tbi? particular juncture ap|>ear! to me to be peculiarly incumbent upon every man who lovca his country, and ? devoted to the promotion of her interest*. Kellow citizens, this U an assemblage fur no ordinary objects,?it is a meeting of no ordinary character. We are assembled on this uay to advance no partisan interoata?to aid no political ambition. We have aetata juncture in the affairs of our country, which points public attention to higher and nobler objects than the ordinary contest* in which we have sometime* engaged in reference to the advancement of particular men, or mere paltry politician*. (Cheer*) I trust,fellow citixens, that the same sentiment actuates us which I witnessed dating the war of 1813, at a time when our common country was in danger, and which was the same as that expressed by the republican admiral of England under the administration oi Oliver Cromwell, when he said?" When my country is in danger and asks my assistance, I will not wait to inquire in whose hands is the administration of her government" (cheers.) What is the condition of our country at this moment?? We have not recently suffered from the calamities of war?we have not just escaped from the ravages of famine?we have not juet been relieved from the scourge of the pestilence?yet what ia the aspect of our country ? Look upon the laboring classes of our community, and see honest labor deprived of its reward?the arm of industry paralysed?no prospect before the working classes that they will rcoeive the reward of their laber and ent< rprise ! What ia the coudition of yenr eommer cial men? 1 now address men of the commercial classes, and I ask you whether at any former period of our history as a nation havoyou witnessed it at a point so low audso forlorn? What are the resources of your government in reference to the means of paying the public creditor*? The treasury notes issued by this governmeat end received in the belief of it* good faith, are dishonored in the hand* that have taken them, and advanced the money on the faith of the government of their choice, and from which they had a right to expect come regard lor character and lomn apprehension that if Rational honor were diagraced, it would merit the reprobation of the people of thi* country, and of the whole world. (Cheer*.) Thia ta the condition of the country at the present moment?gloomy and diaheartening indeed in every view that can be taken of it. But Mr. Chairman, we have a proapect before aa of danger* and distresses that ought to awaken alarm in the mind of every American citi/.en,and arouaeallthe energies of hi* nature in the salvation of bis country from impending danger, and which can only be avoided by the utterance of a voice from the people that will bnrat like tkunder on the capitol, and awaken our aleepy legialatora to a aeuse of their duty. (Cheers) Wehave been informed by a mesaagu from the President of the United States, communicated to Congress but a few day* ago, that during the months ot March. April, and May, there will be a deficiency of three millions of dollars in the appropriations for our maratime and inland defences? necessary for the payment of the expenditure required in the fitting oat of vessels, and the wage* of the persona in the employment of the government, and who ol course reasonably look to that government for the discharge of its obligations. Then la there no provision to meet this pressing and important exigency. The honest, confiding mechanics ef this country have entered into contracts with the government far the fitting out of your vessels, and the construction of your navel armaments, and in relation to various other matters connected with the piAUc defences; and these men judging from the prerent condition of thing* at Washington,are to be turned from the doers of the treasury, mocked when they asked to be paid their honest dues, and sent home to their deaclate hearths in despair, and cursing the bad faith ef a government who have cheated and defrauded them.? (Cheers) But fellow citizens, this is not all. The intelligent portion of the community look not only te the present disastrous state of things, and feel not only the present pressure, which is crushing to the earth, but as intelligent lre?men, duly valuing the glorious institution* ot their country, and looking ahead to see that the republic shall take no harm, they behold a cloud in the political horizon in reference to the foreign relations of this country, that is calculated to alarm every American heart, and excite to the most energetic action, every true heartedcltixvn. Ood foibidthat we should have a foreign war 1 May Ood for a long time avert that calamitous period whan the the people of this country shall be forced into war with any of the nationsoi Europe! Batfallo w oitizeus, the maxim of the Washington administration?the glorious Washington administration, ought to he remembered and enforced by the American people?" In peace prepare for war?million* for defence, not a cent !>r tribute !" (Loud cheers.) Are there no questions presented to the public itnind at this moment, that ought to awaken the people to a seme of their danger 1 That ought to impress on the minds of our legislators the necessity of a speedy and an energetic action to guard against the daugeis of a sudden outbreak, or of an unexpected aggression,or the results of the arrogance of European power 1 Is it not the part of wisdom, that thasa legislators should open their eyes and gust d against the contingencies that may arise, and which if not provided for, may involve us in calaaitiea of the most serious character 1 It ia no argument to aay, that'-sufficient for the day ialho evil thereat"?it is no argument to say, that the oriaia baa not yet come, and therefore it is unnecessary to take measures, or to iucur expense in reference to a state of things that may never come to pass, and if thejr do, will give na time enough to prepare. The true principle that ought to prevail in this government, if wisely administered, is to take, in the language of Mr. Burke a selection of time as well as af means, as censtituting true economy and true wisdom. Hero then you had aur present relations in the most forlorn condition. The hopes of men in their present enterprises are almost destroyed the hand of laboa ia stricken down?the commercial men of the couutiy are in despair. Witnese the derangements of the currency, and the total derangement of the confidence between man and man, necessary for tha successful prosecution of commercial enterprise. Witness, too, this extraordinary state of things in cefsreuce to our foreign atfairs, when important questions aru now stij-naioj Mivmii thu eoverumi nt of Great Britain and thu country, involviug,prrchanoe, a difficulty that may call upon ut to bear up in (upport cf our lational bouor an J national character. I ask, is not tbe public miud alarmed throughout the country 7 I aak J* not arery intelligent man alive to the importance of the present critia, an? the threatening nature of the perila by whiuh we are surrounded I Yea, there ia no common aentiuent of apprehension prevailing. I regret to ear for one,that whig aa 1 am?as 1 hope alway t to be in reference to the principles for which 1 have so long contended, whether I may be right or wrong?whig aa I am?and with the majority of whiga in Congreaa, dyed in tbe wool,if you please?I regret that that party have acted wo r< missly, lest, perchance, their action might embarrass the administration. (Cheers ) And I say to them aa I said to you a little while ago. in reference to the republican sentiment of that great English Admiral?' When our country ia in dangar, let ua aid her, no ma'ter in whaaehandathe government may he."(eheers.) I.ook at Congress and what do you tind then ? Do yon discover a spirit or desire ou the part of the legislator! to do their duti 7 Do you find a spirit such aa ought to be munifestud in men coming from the body of tho people,aud infusing life, and light, and vigor, and energy, andjuatice into thu administration of tne govern ment 7 Not at all. You find there a scene of bickering, of personal disputation? of quarrelling, suck aa haa never.heretolore.beeu witnessed in the Congressional halls! There are the (r leads of Tyler?a small band not more than a corporal's guard. There are the old Van Bntea party?and there are the whiga. Now the whiga have a majority in that House, and 1 da not aak any one of thum to abandon aa iota of bis particular political opinions; but 1 do hold each of tnem responsible for not sacrificing political distinctions end political preju dices on tho altar of their cemman country, when the dangers that surround it call on them to act like mcu who lave their country,more than they lave their party. (Loud and enthusiastic Cheers.) There ia thu Van Bjr.n paity standingjby .ready ta add fuel to the fire. They, loo, are watching their opportunity to mske political capi'al eut of the difficulties of the country; nd all parties are squally reprehensible for having at this moment forgotti-n the manly and patriotic duty of doing what tho country demands, at a time whan every ciiwun U catted on ta defend hia ooOntry from dangar. This Congress has been in aeaaion mora than three months. What has been done daring that period 7 They have pasted two bills?one in reference to the !

(Cheers.) Well, the Sub-treasury has been repealed?tha people have expressed their opinion upon that subject, which I presume is to be regarded aa conclusive. Mr. Tyler has thought proper t? rato a bill originally agraad upon and pawed by Congress We are not to conclude that this man has acted with a dithonoat intention?I think he acted like a weak mas, but not like a dishonest 111 an. ite k mere ny me voice el toe people in mr mode prescribed by the Constitution, end toe are bound in reference to hie eoti u the Mrst officrr of the republic, to consider him as having acted in the discharge of what he believed to be hit public duty. If we cannot get a measure which wouid be considered the best by the Whigs.ten their side, 1st us take what we ess get. The old adage applies to nnr case at present,"beggars ought not to be choosers!" (A laugh and cheering.) You have two plans before Congress?the plan of Mr. Talimadge, and the plan of Mr. Cushiug. lam not prepared to say that either of them will enewer fully the purpose which they are intended to eifect. But inasmuch SI the government has proposed it, shall we not try it 7? Shall we sit down like snlhy boys and refuse the bread because it is net buttered 1 Let us teae it and try it Let na give Mr. Tyler the opportunity of making the experiment to carry fon the government in the best way it oan he carried on according to his understanding of it, and wa may get a better one hereafter. Mr. Maxwell then reiterated the expression ol bis hop -s that the people weald eriee, end with unites voiee, impress on their legisieiera the neceeoity of 8rompt. wi*e, and determined action. Mr. M. then reed e folio wing RESOLUTIONS. Win reus, the present condition of ear country, as>xcmpiiArd in the general derangement and depreciation of ih<- currency ; in the deep diatraet and difficulty hi h pri-vail iu the huainees community i in the consequent depression and distress of nearly all the indueI trious classes ; in the continued decedenceof public end | c ;r (wrote securities ; and in the deplorably dishonored f |> ilif nnr nnl* nf stnta nnvoenswnnta hit* nlan nf tkni nf tue Federal Union?loadly appeal* to the patriotism, priJe and intelligence of Americana a* a aeU governing people: Anil, whereas, thla condition of our country i* rendered yet more urgent by the ominous cloud which impend* upon our foreign relation*, and by which our domestic embarrassments may speedily become aggravat ed into fright!ul obstacle* to onr national security and honor,: Therefore,1 we ,th* merchant*, traders, and other eiti zen* of New York,here assembled, with a solemn sense of the momentous interest* and consideration* involved in the present crisis, and of the duty which devolves upon us t* citizens of the commercial metropolis of the Republic, have Kesolvi-d, That a crisis ha* manifestly arrived in which the indulgence of mere 'party feelings, and the achievement of mere party purpose*, can afford no remedy for the imminent evils undvr which the country labors; but having probably sap*rinduced them, are calculated to enhance end prolong tham. Resolved, That such oljects, ever ignoble in comparison with the prosperity, happiness and dignity at the whole people, are. at the present juncture, especially unworthy of the high functions of our national legislator*: and in open conflict with the interests, opinions and wishes of the people whom they represent. Resolved, That as republican citizens, and as members of both of the great political parties, meeting here upou the common grounJ of the common weal, without compromising our distinctive political opinions upon other questions, we cordially uaite in deprecating all factious opposition to the administration of our Government in the hands ef those to whom the people, under the Constitution, have confided it, as unjust and degrading in itself?a* calculated to embarrass the necessary operations of the Government?retard the fulfilment of its legitimate obligations?and impair its timely vigor V>d usefulness a', a period of great publio emergency, when the expectation of millions is concentered upon the wisdom and succeas of itt policy. Resolved, That the proposition emanating from the administration now pending before Coagress, and recently favorably reported on by committees of the House ot Representatives and the Senate, for the establishment of a Government Exchequer, recognising as it dees, both the power and duty of the Federal Government to provide a sound currancy for the people, it entitled to the candid consideration of all, who appreciate the importance of a sound national currency,to the preaent wanta and future prosperity of the country. Resolved, That viewing to the financial condition of the country in relation to the proper dignity and efficiency of our Republican Government, we coDaider the v?u|icuiiv? wmuini, is do unurr sue solemn responsibility of promptly imposing such duties opou import* *b?ll n*t only put an end to the miserable and expensive policy of borrowing from year to year for or* d:nary expenditure*, but al*o provide aaeaa* for the puuetaal payment of *uch a debt aa preaent exigencies may compel u? to contract for the purpoae of placing the country in a state ol *elf-protecUon and defence, favorable to the fair adjuitment of existing difficulties with foreign power*. Resolved, That i we deem it the duty of Congress to give this indispensable meaiure their fir?t and nig heat couiideration?suffering it neither to be restrict*! by falae principle* of economy, which the future ever hows to be the most improvident; nor deferred oy frivolou* and humiliating controversy; and further, that any attempt wheresoever it may originate, or for whatever purpcae designed, to postpone the great currency question to future sessions, aud to mingle such momentous question* and national security and honor with future politic 1 struggles?will receive, as it will deserve, the unqualified reprobation and universal indignation of the people. And finally,we Invoke the spirit of forbearance, of concession, and of patriotism, to preside over the deliberations of Congress, and to secure such result* aa will strengthen the bonds of union, restore quiet to an harrassed snd auiferingpeople, and set at work those elements which, unchecked by political ambition, and unrestrained by factious designs, would restore our be loved country to its former prosperity. After the reeolutiona had been put and carried unanimously, Mr. Hijiam Ketchvis rose and said? Fiuow Citiraws I never regretted more than I do now mv, physical inability to addreat yeu. 1 most cordially approve of ewry word and every letter contained in those resolutions. It seems to me thet there are two claases of citizens in Congreaa end out of it, bo tween whom, as between the upper and nether millstone, the prosperity of the country resulting from its commerce, trade.and agrioulture, is now ground to powder. (Great applause.) These two are, first, those who will give bo relief but a national Bank, and secondly, tboM who will give no relief but a sub-treasury. And whilat the prosperity of the country ia almoat in a dying condition, the patient muit be compelled to take one of these two prescriptions or remain eick for four year* longer. (Laughter andapplauae ) Now, I aak you, fellow eitizena, fa there not a apirit of conciliation in the in em b?-ra of both political partiea, which will iuduca them to aay, that?while it ia tbaduty of the National Government to provide a found currency?that we can yet get along without a national bank, and alao without n sub-treasury. (Load applause ) Now the question is, shall we be compelled to put up with ouo or othorof these two things. 1 aay that we can get along with something eUe. (Cheers.) Why not pass it 7 (Loud cheering.) improve it if you please, with any proper and absolutely necessary amendments, but let all parties meat upon this qnesiioo in a spirit ( conciliation?pass it?give it a fair and impartial trial; and then lot us see whether we o>n get on or not without a national bank ; which some thiuk that the propla have condemned:?

A disastrous fiuale ! Let Congress take warning I IueonTasT Cauiss.?The Arnica* Squaoas*.? We learn ea good authority, that the government has ordered a squadron of four vemels ol war to sail in a few days for the Coast of Air I ca, and to cruUeon that ground for a certain appointed time. ' The Vandalia, of 21 guns, now at Norfolk, commanded by Captain Ramsay, will head the squadron?she is now preparing for the expedition under the orders of that gentleman. Three other vessels wiil be added, and the whole placed under the command of Captain Rarnaay. We conceive that this expedition is of a most important character. The revival of the great question of the right of search, has been caused by the conduct of the British cruisers on the coast of Africa?and in order to protest the rights and io terests of ihe United States, tke expedition could not have been placed in more competent hands. Captain Ramsay (now Commodore, we suppose, by naval usage) is an officer of great tact and addressvery courteous, but very firm?brave, patriotic, and well versed in the important questious that may arise during the cruise. We presume the expedition is intended by eur government, as an experiment to teat how far the British cruisers, under the authority of the English government, and the recent treaty with the great powers (France hacked out,) will dare to invade the righta of an independent flag, under the hoi lew pretext of anppreaain g the slave trade. 11 the British flag attempts any unauthorised line of conduct, they will find that Captain Ramsay and the gallant crews under his command, know their country'* rights, and knowing' will maintain them. This expedition will probably bring to n practical issue, the important question of peace or war with England?and in this aspect, the whole nation will keep their eyes constsntly on their movements ia the African seas. The great powers of Europe will soon have their eyes open to the ambition and spirit of aggrandizement that characterise EnglandFrance has already detached heraelf from the treaty in part?and as soon as Russia understands her trne position, she also will back out and leave the British government .with an empty parchmentThe War is Florida.?We understand that the war in Florida will be positively terminated next month- There are only about one hundred Semineles afloat in these swamps?and the government intends to place a military police in the territory? not an aimy. Quicx Trip or tin Clarior.?The steam bark Clarion, with the Erierson propeller, arrived at St. Thomas, on the 1st inst. in aine days from this port. This is a very quick trip, and would have beea per lormca in iwo a?ys icw umr nau ?iram uvrn uku all the way. St. Thomaa is about twenty four hundred miles hence, and this trip, therefore, speaks favorably for the propeller. The good people of St. Thomas were greatly astonished on seeing the Clarion, a full rigged vessel, without smoke or paddles, running up, eight miles an hour, through Sail Rock passage, with sails furled and yards all braced. By the way, speaking o f the Clarion, the Ericsson propellor, together with Hooter's,is shortly to be tested on an enlarged scale. There are new building at the Philadelphia and Norfolk Navy Yards, two splendid vessels of six hundred tons each?that at Philadelphia to be propelled by Ericsson's, nod that at Norfolk by Hunter's submerged wheels.? When these vessels are finished and tried, it will be known which is the best adapted for osean steam navigation.

This clipper was built under the superintendence of Captsin Sumner, her dommander, at the East, and the first voyage she made out and home was performed in the almost insredible short pace of eight months and fifteen days, including the time of discharging and re-losding at Macao!? We believe this to be the quickest passage to the Celestial Empire and back, on record, and indeed it equals the speed of the English steamships. We speak of this merely to show to what per .lection naval architecture has reached in this country. And it is not in speed only, but in beauty and capacity for cargo also.

Mr. B. has a fine manly form, which would greatly aid him in Opera. His voice is powerful, flexible,and of unequalled richness, and he evinoed not only great mnaical knowledge, which indeed we should expect in one who had such a parent for his tutor, but a degree of taste and feeling, which added to the rich melody of his tones make him the most delightful vocalist we ever had the pleasure of listening to. If he devotes his rare talents to the profession that nature haa so admirably fitted him for,his career can net fail to be a most brilliant one. Beth aire and sen were repeatedly and enthusiastically encored. The elder Braham sang several songs with aa ener gy end spirit that completaly electi ifled his hearers.

Six sections of this deck are now in operation, possessing sufficient cspacity to raise 1,700 tons gross weight, and we understand that another acction of 300 torn lifting power, will be added in two or three weeks, which will enable the dock to raise any of the Atlantic steamers or two large ships at the same time.
