NEW YORK HERALD New York, Tnriday, Allium '4, hf'4. ?? - \n ?;?- ?? ? ? -- - ? t?v. r.> AnErening edition of the Huuai.d will b<pubhshsd every day, for the present, on the arrival of the Southern mail at 3 o'clock, P. M. The news from Washington t* beginning to have some interest. Stai r Dkht?Aitrom hinq Election*.?'The aspect of the approaching elections in this State begins to look very alarming In consequence ol tlie small intrigues of the two parties against each other, there are strong]in4ications that a legislature will be returned favorable tean increase ol the Mate debt It was with the greatest difficulty that I lie pressure ol the speculators, to run up the public debt, could be stayed last winter. Willi the electioneering now going on?and the log-rolling in the different sections of the Stale, we are under the strongest apprehensions that a large majority of members will he elected, in favor of increasing the present State debt. If this opinion should turn out to be correct, we will see a .-hocking tall in the public securitiesof the State, and the prospect of a result similar to that of Pennsylvania. What is to prevent this result1 Nothing. In a railroad district, where that question is all pow rful, both parties will pledge their support to the railroad?so in every district where a new exi>enditure is wanted, either in canals or railroads. In such a case, it matters not w hich candidate is elected?all are in favor of running the State into debt. The consequence will be a legislature in favor ol more loans?more debt?more improvements ?more money to borrow?more speculations?more discredit?more revulsion. We really fear that the State of New York in consequence of the corrupt electioneering system of bothparties, will soon commence on the downward road that leads to larse debts, ereat disereilit?and ulli Tiate calamity. Let us look about us. I in port mi t from Wimllliigtoti. The Navy Ap|>ropriation liill lias passed both Houses. The S-natewas still engaged in the details ol the Tariff Hill. IIkai. i ii of the Crrv.?Take care of your health during these awful changes of weather. The city is healthy?hut it requires care to keep it so. The evening edition of the " Sun," has been stating that some paper has been reaming two cases ol Asiatic cholera in town. This is a wilful or ignorant misrepresentation. There has been no case of Asiaticcholera in New York. We have only heard of two cas?s of spasmodic cholera,'both .which recovered. Yet no one can take too much care of his health during these rapid changes. Navai. CotrKT Martial,.?We continue to-day the interesting reports of the Naval Court Martial held here. These trials are the queerest investigations of the present century. We rather think one Win. Shakspeare is beat?particularly in his famous work called " Much Ado about Nothing." I>f.ath of titk Dt kk D'Oblkans.?Funeral service was celebrated at the Church of St. Peter, in Barclay street, in commemoration of this event, on Sunday at nine o'clock; and the French residents are to meet tins evening at Delmonico's to concert measures in conjunction with M. He la Forest and consular authorities, and the French Naval officers, for some appropriate testimonial of national respect, and of (heir sense of the loss sustained by the French nation. Funeral Service for the Di ke D' Orleans.? There is to he a grand funeral service to-morrow morning, at 10 o'clock, at the Catholic Cathedral, on account of the death of the Duke d'Orleans.? The officers and crew of the llamer will land at the Battery, nt half past S and walk in procession to the Cathedral. The Mayor and Common Council, the officers of the Warspite and North Carolina, anil the citizens generally are invited to attend. Thf. Great Trotting Match Yestebhay.? The great match between Bryant's g. m. ImHi/ Suffolk, Bill Weelan's b.g. Confidence, and Hiram WoodmfVs b.g. lUpton, came off yesterday over the Beacon course. The first heat was won by Ripton in 8 minutes; the mare tried him first, but he shook her off; after this, Confidence made play at him. but had to give it ap. The second heat was won easy by Ripton in 7 m. Lady Suffolk coming in second, and receiving the money therefor. Confidence was not in order, but neither had a chance with Ripton. We should think that they would now bring the Oneida Chief into the Held against Ripton. Departure ok the British Queen ?This steam er will sail hence for Southampton and Antwerp next Sunday morning, at 10 o'clock. Iler letter i bags will close on the previous evening at 7 o'clock- I Postponement.?The Regatta which was to tak? place on Wednesday the 3d, is unavoidably i>ostponed to Monday the 8th, in consequence of the non-arrival of a club boat from Mobile, which is to enter the contest. See advertisment in this day's Herald. (kj- The Croton Water Pipes.?The great main has now already reached as far as Pulton street. The "Maryland Cadets," a volunteer company from Baltimore, will arrive this afternoon in the Philadelphia cars, and leave at 5 o'clock in the steamboat for Boston. Nibi-o's.?The Ravels have made another gTeat hit in the production of a new pantomime, called Mazahne. The scenery is most splendid?the tast scene i.s es|>ecially gorgeous? though at the same time chaste: a more beautiful design we never witnessed. A Turkish Palace reflects high credit on Lehr?but it is impossible in our limits to go into detail ; the whole atiair from the rise to the fall ot the curtain was received with enthusiastic applause, and crowded saloons, for weeks to come, will doubtless reward the unwearied enterprise of th# liberal proprietor. Chatham Theatre.?This house was full to overflowing last evening, to witness the first representation of "The Rose of Arragon," which was beautifully played throughout. To-night Thome offers another attractive bill of fare, and we antifi pate just such another jam. Late From Florida.?By the arrival of the United States steamer Beaufort, Captain Poinsett, savs the Savannah Republican of the 2Kth inst., we are in possession of the following letter from a correspondent, dated i Pii.atka, (E. F.) July 23 The steamer Col. Harney, sailed from Cedar Keys for New Orleans on the 17th inst., having on board Halleck Tustenuggee and all his narty, and several Seminole Chiefs, -ent out from Arkansas as a oepu* tation, who have been for two year* employed in assisting to bring in their red brethren The party is under charge o| L- ut. C.inby, 2d infantry, and Asifting Surgeon Bailey. No murder or depredation has been heard of in Florida since the 9th ot June: ;md that occured before the message from Halleck Tustenuggee to the Creeks had been received. From Cavaha.?Lady Bagot will hoi.; her drawing room this evening at 9 o'clock. Such a cere, monv has become of late years quite nn event in Quebec. The last held 111 this city, was that oi the Countess ?f Durham, in 1X1*. It is, we believe, the intention of the Governor General, to leave this city on Monday next, with his family and suite, tor Montreal, on their way to Kingston. The Montreal Gazette ?ays that His Excellency will remain for some time in that city and that Lady Bagot and her daughters will honor the intended Chanty Ball with their presence.?(Juel/tc O - 'tf, Julu 24 A Diar Kt->s.?A lady ot title r?siHing at Hampton Court palace, went out on the terr 'i .ie fine evening about eleven o'clock, to walk a while. The guard, a private of the Hth Hussars, challenged her. and as she turned to answer, he swore she looked like .m angel, threw his arms round her neck, and kissed her pa^ionately. Unfortunately the guard came up, and finding him more devoted to "civil" than "military" matters, arrested him. He has been doomed to forty day- "kit drill," t < to march (our hours a dav with his "kit" upon his back, r.s a reward for his temerity The ladv herself, though "chaste as ice and pure as snow," has not " 'sca|**d calumny." and the wicked and evil-disposed of the neighborhood have most uncharitably reported that had not the sargeant made his appearance the "kiss" would have paseed "muster." * A Novei. S ine in Waia"St*hkt.? Yeslarday about two o'clock a ver\ in It resting and sentimental scene took place in Wall street. Our old friend and follow mrtrrrr Mr Watson Webb, who fought th? duel with the Mnu. Tom Marshall, made his lirst up r irance at his office, since that great event hiiiyme?l. The day uncommonly, clear, cool, uo<' !) utitul, nd the weather, if made on purpose, roiiid not have been better. Webb rode down Wall street in the corner of clow carriage, halt hid behind a pair of inagiiiti( nt whiskers, which curled up with gr>-at eleganc'and bravery. The carriage stopffH at his office in Wall street, and he immediately proceeded to dismount. As soon as it was known that the hero was on the pave, a crowd ot brokers, bankers*, financiers and loal.-r collected around him, and they " -iiietl to welcome him back on the old ground. Hiscelebrated le(t leg w as decorated with an elegant white bandage from his hip down to the sole of his foot The sun of heaven shone upon its snowy hue, and a halo of glory seemed to encircle this wonderful leg Me also held in each hand, a magnificent crutch, which actually seemed to have life and motion, acquired no doubt from the contiguity of the locality .,,1 Kut,> of aLu. ur^k ...??i J t .1... ? ! w?w iwnm """? IK'"" *um carriage with great grace, and limped into his office with such dignity as a beautiful white bandage and a |>air of elegant crutches can only give. Throughout this scene the crowd of gentlemen and loafers looked on with great intensity of feeling? deep admiration?and a very original smile seemed to |>lay around every lace, such as Mephistopholis usually puts on when he has succeeded in making a good investment in human souls. The scene was rich beyond description?full of sentiment, morality, sense, and everything that was found at the bottom of Pandora's band box. Thus, after a struggle of nearly fifteen long years in pursuit of honor?hundreds of sleepless nights? rows without end?percussion locks and mah?ganv stocks?the honorable murder of a member of Congress?and the disgrace of many others, Mr. Webb was fortunate enough to procure a lucky shot in the calf of the left leg, which makes him happy and a cripple for life. This is a distinction which few can enioy in these hard times?and it conveys a moral which ought to have a great weight in society, and through all succeeding generations. Mr. Webb, however, was modest in his pretensions, he tri<-d to get killed in the field of honor, or to kill his antagonist, but on second thoughts, it was deemed as well to make a wound that would remind hiin of his valor for his whole life. It is a singular fact, also, in the pathology of honor and glory, that in the same building another instance is also located?thus establishing the (act in natural history that birds of a feather flock together. Mr. Belmont, who acquired a never fading name of glory and a lame leg in the same virgin field of Delaware, also does business in the same favorite building?and sometimes both Mr. Webb with his celebrated left leg?and Air ISelmout with his equally celebrated right leg, may be found taking the fresh air out at Bloomingdale, iinu aiong uic romantic snores 01 tlie Hudson liiver. Seriously?seriously, however, before we close. Such sire the deplorable, lamentable, pitiable scenes which a demoralised and perverted sense of human honor, produce in the midst of a Christian and civilized community. Are we wiser ! are we better! are we more sensible than the savages of a desert ? 1 doubt whether the intelligent anJ civilised communities of the present day, have yet the practical good sense, in many points of social life, which the Indians ol the Itocky Mountains daily practice without the aid of schools, churches, academies, or the bible itself.

We are here now in the midst of summer, hot weather, dirty streets, and a perfect stagnation of all kinds of business. The cro|* of cotton and corn in this State are reported to be very fine and flourishing, and bid fair to yield an abundance this year Should the crop of cotton yield as much as anticipated,the Lord only knows what is to be done with it It will be so cheap that all your fair " millinair^de Parisien" can bring, (if they have not done so already,) their dresses, ire. to perfection : and I'yentleinen's taileur de I'araisc can make 1'yentlemen'svery foine. We have been suffering, until night before last, very much for rain, not having had any since the last of the month. Our beautiful Mrs. Sippi (asl)uffield of the Natches Free Trader calls her) still continues in fine boating order, and many noble floating palaces arc seen riding on the bosom of the stream, whilst wave upon wave nasses with rapid strides to kiss the bosom of its mother ocean. We are to have a grand festival here on next Tuesday, the l?th, given in the shape of a " public dinner," (very common these davs?gentlemen, however, always decline them too,) to ex-editor Wm. 11. McCardle. lormerly of the Vicksburg Whig. By the bye, though be is a whig, the Major is a veryclever fellow, and a perfect gentleman. He is only 1 a Mrs. Sippi Major, mind you?he is not of the regulararmy. same as the lame Colonel, who is under "Marshall law " Our Major was put under near the same kind of law?not " Marshall/' Inn llwmn law. lie is of the Kuintuck stock, and is bold as a lion, daring as a |>anth< r, and fearless as the mariner who rules amidst the flowing topsail of the shipwreck, upon the billowy ocean. He made himself quite conspicuous and useful as a whig leader during the campaign of 1H40, but it was no go, was it, in the end ? (>ld ex-Governor McNutt (did you ever see him?) is ns fat as ever, and looks as if ne would be willing to run against uny slim w his? man they can bring upon the held next tall He ranks very high in his party, lie is a man of great parts, and we think liim'the best man they can bring forw ard?if on teni|*rance principles only, we go tor him. How patriotic arid lull of glory some |H*rsons are, wlien they begin to find their own |>ersonalpopularity at home on the wane. After having received the bestowal of offices of honor and profit upon them, and finding that they can't claim its total inheritance, how soon you near them find fault and complain against any and everything! and how soon 1 will they take up the trumpet and sound loudly the nraise of nations and places where they see some taint glimmering ray of hone for them to be kept above the surface of the balance of the industrious and frugal population' We see now and hear the loud halloo for Texas, liberty and law. You would laugh. I am certain, (had you have not long since,) at a Texian hearihem compare the thousand and one advantages Texas has over the United States. I uited States ' Why, tliev said this was no place f or them. I think so too. What claims had she to the bold,daring and enterprising youth of this country ?

To-day the weather is excessively warm, the thermometer landing at 96^ in the shade. The la dies, dear creatures, appear to suffer greatly. ' would recommend to them, as a means ol' relief, that they di*[>ense with the bustle and the usual stuffing of cotton wool, with which their dresses are interlarded with a view to improve their amtour. The Pulaski Guards returned to the city last evening, highly gratified with their vi?it to Plymouth They paw high encomiums oil the Standi^h Guards ol that place, who, they represent, as unremitting in their attentions. The Pulaski Guards mustered forty-nin** guns, the blandish Guards thirty-five. The visit of the Maryland Ca dets to this city, will cause much display and rivalry among our companies. The Cadets of this city have already procured a uew quick step, and dedicated it t? that corps. It is the composition of Mr A. F. Knight, leader of the Brigade Band. The Acadia will sail on Monday. I understand that quite a number of passengers are already book ed. < >ur dates from Halifax are to the 24th instant. Her Majesty's frigate Volage, Capt. Sir H Dickson, twenty days from Port Royal, Jamaica, arrived there on the20th. Sixty persons were sick onboard of vellow fever, and ?nu death occurred on the dav of her arrival. The old and new lines of steamboats on the eastern route have formed a coalition, ami the fare to Bangor has been raised from one to three dollars, and to Portland from filty cents to one dollar and fifty cents. The present prices are <juite reasonable, and will give the boats a living profit. The cotton market has been dull throughout the week. No sales have been effected worth |notice. In flour the sales are larger than for some werks, several thousand barrels having been purchased for the British provinces. Howard street commands $6,25,4 months ; ISO bbls. ?<i,12, cash ; < reorgetown $6.44 a $6,50 ; scratched $5,75, 4 months; Fredericksburg $6 ditto; Genessce, common, $6,12: $6,1* a $6,25 for fancy brands. The grain market is dull, and prices low : corn, yellow flat, 57 c, and white, 55 c; Northern outs, 32c a :?{< per bushel, and dull at that. The ksales of beef and pork are light, and at previous rates. Western clean pork brings #9,12; mess $7* prime $4,75. Boston mess beef, .$'8,75 per bbl. The prices of sugar remain the same as at last quotations.

B. Albany. [CarrMpondeuee of the Herald.], 16th July, 1812. Female Academy Commencement at Albany. Mr. Suitor? i Quite an excitement has been created here by an incendiary letter from this place, published in the Boston Pilot, signed " Matthewite." The writer strives to put our Hibernian Societies at swords l>oints. It seems that the Montgomery Benevolent Association took the precedence (in tfye procession j on the 1th) of the older Irish societies?upon which f the latter stepped out and left them. We think it a 1 poor business to revive a spirit of enmity between people of the same nation and kindred, by bringing up the orange question. Being published, as it was, 1 in a paper which lias no circulation here, the inten- 1 ded result, very fortunately, did not take place. The Mansion House folks are gentlemen and scho- ' lars. They keep a file of the Herald, to which every one, 1 mean those who can appreciate a good thing, 1 hasten to get the first reading. The letters are read j first, then the money articles. It is rumored that I they are the best that emanate from any New York f pen, and are referred to as the best authority. The house furnishes an excellent table, attentive ser > vants, and good rooms ; so, if your folks come this t way, let them give Luthrop a call. He will b? glad to see them. t Yesterday afternoon every one went to the Se- t cond Dutch Church, to attend the Female Acade- t my commencement. At an early hour the galleries and side pews were fdled with ladies. The former seemed one platform of bonnets. At three o'clock the scholars came in, dressed in white, and look their seats. After them, the hon. trustees and readers. The president asked a blessing, during which Mr. C looked through his fingers to see if the girls behaved themselves. After that all the scholars rose, and sang the following hymn, comi>osed by Miss Mary C? r, of Shelter Island :? Oh ! wake the song of praise, While life is glad and bright, Ere dimmed are Hope's pure ray* By sorrow's chilling night ; Ere Time ha* touched the heart, Or youth's purecloudless days, With Ilceting wing depart, Oh! wake the song of praise! Oh ! wake the song of praise, Though Hope should fade away, From your despairing gaze. As fades the sun's last ray? There's rest for ye on high, Songs to His glory raise, Who leads ye to the sky. Oh ! wake the song of praise ! Rev. Mr. Campbell read the re|>ort of the committee on compositions. It was a very able document, and, like all his productions, of a high .order. He s.iid most of the productions were so nearly emial as to render it difficult for them to deride upon.? Some showed too many mixed metaphors and re- c dnndancr of omw<. c The following hymn was then suns: by the pupils:? a Life's spring time is like the young rose in its bloom, . Whlchhreathes forth each hour a still sweeter perfume, 11 Till withered and blighted by noon'? scorching ray*, * It droops on the stem and toon fades from the gaze ; d So bright, Joyous youth, n Posses quickly away in its beauty and truth. tl si Then give, ere the perfume has faded away, Ere the heart's young affections know nug'ht of decay? B The spirit, yet strong in the might of its love, ' ' To the Saviour w ho reigns in the bright realms aliore, ^ And your's be the joy, F, Which no shade of dark sorrow can ever deitroy.' ] The Rev. Duncan Kennedy arose and read the e prize composition, which took the first gold medal. I< It was entitled " The Sea of Gallilee," a poem. It p w is listened to with graat attention, and was greatly it admired, and we ho|>e to have it published. The n author wan Miss Robinson, of New York, who bids f< fair to become one of our best poets. Hon. O. L. n I folly read the second prize piece, which took a me- a ilal. It was " Philosophy of the Poets," by Miss e Johnson, of South Carolina. The house being ra- a iher dark, and he unwilling to betray his age by n ising sjiecs, made quite a failure in reading it.? 1 Every one was on the rack tolisten to such murder- d ng of a beautiful production. The writing was ve- it y fine, yet it was no excuse for him. To add to all c fiat, a baby set up a screaming in the gallery, not- w vithstanditig all the endeavors of the mother to stop ? t. She danced it, and promissed every thing to the e ittle dear, if it would be contented. It screamed ri ike the very d?!, and made everyone nervous? hi The anxious mother at last took it down stairs; r< dapping one side of its head, then the other, hv way >f recompense. lu the second department were two medals. Pr. Welch read the pieces. The first was taken by st Miss Olt, of Albanv, entitled "The ('treat and r, iond," the other by Miss Townsend, " The Fores' o( m ui?- i ? :i(i Dou wen written, i ii>-rc wen , iiunjr ttlhors nearly equal lo them?"A Dream of Life," "The Fountain of Youth," by Miss (,'assiiv. \-c. Miss Gnrnsey took the mathematical medal. Mist ft II tr, of Long Island, and Miss H s, of Alba- j0 ny, nearly equalled her in ill- ftlissC y, of I >elawar<\ was the best writer, and took a sold mew? In ! rench coni|K>*ition, Miss Ar 1, of the south- Kl nrn j?;irt of the Stale, took a medal an the beat ?c meaker, and the authers of Osceola, and I'ere In Ik l baise, premiums. The very exquisite and talented ? Moan. I' d (not the count), of l'oughkeepaie, read a French essay in true Parisian style. It was up and down, dot-and-go-one manner, like the piston rod ot an engine. Mr. Molinnrd, the professor, s; read one. His manner was good, and engaged the attention of nil who understood it. The following hymn, by Mi>s Phebe G r, ol |,j Shelter blend, wee sent i? m Though ronnd the brow of woman beam The light of loveliness, V And though her eye w ith radiance gleam, e< Her smile have power to ble?s; h] Though love in her fond heart be strong.

A lovelineM time may not blight To humble souls is given? I" And strongest, purest, is the love Which has in ?Jnd its birth. r( Like warmth and blessing from above, ? It gives new life to earth. ,{< The dignified and accomplished Adj. Gen. read * ti French report. He said there w<u- 110 institution in liie countrviwhich offered such inducements togain ,1 knowledge of the language. Under the care ol l'r<?t M? it had vainer! an enviable reputation. Then succeeded the distribution of medals and premiums. It was gratifying to witness the eagerues* uud delight of the smaller children on receiving liieirs, :ind drew u smile lroin all. Honors were conferred upon the graduates. Formal diplomas were given the French graduates, who were cupaMe ol reading and teaching the French language.? The president then bestowed upon the graduates their diplomas, and addressed them in a very feeling maimer- rk>bs escaped lroin some, on parting Irom those wilh whom liiey had associated lor so long a period. We all thought it hie happiest effort. Ile was allecled also, and poor Mr. could 1101 conceal his anguish. At the moment ol bidding them farewell, the whole school arose and sang the following valedictory hvmn. composed by Miss H n, of New York. The two lasi lilies ol each verse was sung by the graduates alone, and the sweet tones of their voices arose, trembling and reverberating from the lolly ceiling of the building.^ Kvery one leaned instinctively forward to catch the echo:? Sister* lo t the hour of partiug, With resistless haste draws near , From the bottom sight are starting, From the eye u/leetion's tear; Sisters, must we widely sever, K?r in other homes to dwell I Yen, we go where duty calls us, Take our last, our sad farewell. Sisters, oft the gushing river, Parted flows along tne plain, But its waters meet forever, Wheiethey mingle with the main ; Thus may we in yon bright region, Kver in communion dwell, Where we never more shall utter Parting worJs or sad farewell. Si?ters, may the priceless precepts Tn|kl us by the lips We love, Bo unto your wond'ring footsteps Like the guiding star above. Sisters, may the Holy Spirit, J Kver with you freely dwell, Anil upon you shed its blessings, Farewell, farewell. The professor of mathematics, Mr. E. N. II d, was highly complimented for his unwearied attention to Ilia pupils, and the skill displayed by (hem.? The two last problems given the three young ladies would have puzzled any one. It would require ?reat devotion to the study to surpass them. Fifty mnis, taken from works they had never seen, were {iven, to test their [lowers. Two young ladies solv?d every one, and one forty-nine ;even that one was not an error, she not having finished it entirely. This examination cannot fail of convincing every >ne that there isno institution in the country equal to ours, without an exception. The fairest and most admired of the graduates ?ras Miss K 3, of , with her auburn hair and leautiful face, fo modest and unassuming. She shont? forth the loveliest among the lovely. Miss S r, Tr y, R n, M?-s, and a host of others "too numerous to mention." The Misses 3 r, of S?-? Island, have been much noticec ier?i. 1 hope it will not turn their heads. One of them is to return again; so it is riot overwhelming to >art from them. They are like ' Two lovely berries moulded on one item So with two seeming bodies, but one heart." I The Albany Republican Artillery, Capt. Strain, together with Major Strain and staff, intend making in excursion to Boston on the 22d inst. They will je received by the military companies there, and be the guests of the Light Guards during their stay, which will be about four days. Albany will show the " Yenkees" what they can do when they please. They have a high name for skill and knowledge of heir professional duties; we expect much from hem. Returning, they will pass through N. York, >0 let your troops lie on hand to give them a reception. We know how your soldiers can act when hey move in any undertaking, and hope to hear of 111 unprecedented review 011 the occasion. I alluded to the Coldstream Guards the other day. It seems now to have been applied to the Rurgesses. iobby W wished that the next time the Corps vent any where they would bring awav with them 1 better reputation than they did from Philadelphia. There they had the honor of being called thehard st drinkers alive. At a social meeting of the com>any, Geo. II yin the chair, it was resolved that he wish of Robert should be carried into effect,and lereafter pure water should be their only beverage. I is the more gratifying to him, as it was carried by 1 unanimous voice. Should they abide by such a lecision, the title of Coldstream Guards, though it sthe title of the " Queen's own" regiment, will be ery appropos.

Presuming that your numerous readers would be 'leased with some information from the Military \cademy, I have concluded toenroll myself in your ;orjw of correspondents. I arrived last evening,and ifter the usual and necessary exclamations ot sur'rise and admiration, I waspleased to learn that the lotel, so far from being indiflerently kept,has never >een so well worthy of patronage. After a cool ind pleasant night I was aroused from the -arms of Hiss or Mrs. Morpheus, I will not say Mr., as I nerer could sleep with a man, especially in warm weaher, by the booming sound of the morning gun and he whistling of the " wry necked pipe;" I wish it lad been wrung necked. The musicians then mused themselves with divers tunes, scarcely to be ailed hymns, inasmuch as I recognised amongst ithers, "Zip Koon," "Take your time Miss Lucy," nd the like. The Point never looked more beautiful than now; he scenery has all the freshness and fullness, with 11 the delicate tints of spring. Not a leaf has faed and scarcely one has fallen to the ground. The ew building for the library and [philosophical aparaus,?the chapel, the hundred tents, the sugar loaf haped cedars, the fine air, the pretty women, the ay officers, and the cadets,tgive an air and style to his place unequalled bv any j>lace in the country, unongst the distinguished \Uitorsare Major A. Van luren, Col. Stone of the Commercial, and Miss Hair, the accomplished daughter of a well known ditorof Washington.

This morning the blacks in the lower part of the city turned out in temperance procession, or in procession commemorative of the abolition of slavery in the British West Indies, (which, I have not positively learned,) the consequence ol which was a great row and violent assault upon them by a large party of whites. At one time there were about three thousand persons engaged in the fierce struggle, many of them fighting with the d??peration of fiends. Clubs, stones and brickbats were the weapons in general use, wliioh Hew about as thick as hail, doing severe Injury to many. A person who passed over the ground after the crowd of fighters, represents it u covered with stones and brickbats, and the pavement marked in many places with blood. " One white man had his jaw broken and face much shattered by a brickbat. A small church and several dwellings of colored persons were much injured. Several persons are represented as more or less hurt, but in the present state of contusion, any thinir like particulars can not be got. After long fighting, anil many ol the combatants had been thinned of), thu police dene ended upon them in pretty strong forcc, and made several arrests among the blacks. More serious consequences, in a renewal ol disturbances, which is generally predicted, ia expected to-night. Thp bircks having been building a hall in the lower part of the city, which is not yet quite finished, in which to hold meetings and discussions, that this morning's row may prove a precursor of a similar fate to it that which liefel the late Pennsylvania Hall, ii strongly feared. A meeting of unemployed workitigmon ia now as seaibling in the State House Yard, t? discuss the depressed state of (lie times, and if possible to devise a remedy of relief. That these persons may not be coupled with or induced to join in a continuation of the outrage noticed above, is ardently hoped. Several hundred, many of them Irish, are already met. The great topic is the row?the Irish denouncing the blacks. f The interest on the State debt due and pavable to-dnv, has, as was generally anticipated, been dishonored, la stocks nothing of consequence was done. A man named Thompson, w ho has been confined in the Debtor's apartment ol the Moyamensing Prison for the last three years and eight months, was this morning liberated under the new law. Frederick Silvernagle, a German who resided in th?

Ilis partner John Mullock, was yesterday taken before Alderman Christian, and committed for a farther hearing on the charge of having thrown liim overboard.
