Arrival of the Steam Ship Mississippi?Her joints of speed, <$ <.?A IVrerk?Sn/>j>o*t'd Kasraliti/, <$ ?. ^ My Dear Sir :? i The steam ship Mississippi, Captain iSalter, came into this jK?rt in gallant style on the 0th instant, and | during her stay was visited by a large portion of our population. r?he was nine days coming from New ( York, and during the passage had encountered some heavy weather. The impression of her oflictrs see ins to be, thnt she is too heavily sparred and rigged, anil that, were the necessary alterations in | this respect made, she would be one of the fastest shins of her class afloat. When off Cape Hatteras, under steam, against a topgallant sail breeze, she made hut little headway against the Gulf Stream, , and this was attributed of course to the great resistance offered by her spars and rigging. t?o far as | an unpractised eye could ascertain, she had stood the voyage as well as sailing ships could have done, ] and looked as it she had just left your port. I understood f rom her officers, that her destination was Vera Cruz, but the day before the one which had been fixed upon for sailing. Mr. J. L. Dorsey, bearer of despatches from Mr. Waddy Thompson, arriveil here on his w*y to Washington, having been thirty-three days from Vera Cruz, accompanied by two of the .Santa Fe prisoners. He immediately had an interview with Captain Salter, and it was then understood that the ship would proceed forthwith to Pensacola. Phe sailed on the lltli instant. The schooner Pequot, which touched at this port about three weeks ago, on her voyage from New j Orleans to Charleston, subsequently got ashore on the Florida If eef. and the master employed wreckers, who saved the cargo.worth nbout two thousand dollars, but finding that the vessel was filling with water iliey supposed she had bilged,and left her there. She was subsequently sold by the master, after being di mantled, for one hundred and ninety dollars, unci her purchasers have brought her tnthisport und re- ' paired her. l"|toii the trial of the case, thecargo | having been libelled for salvage, some circumstances ol the case induced a belief that the master ' had purjKisely run his vessel ashore, and the Court ' instituted a searching investigation, which is < not yet brought to a clots'. A reasonable doubt , in ly certainly he indulged of the fairness of this transaction, and the testimony, so far as it has yet been taken, discloses a siate of things which implicate the master llut it is so difficult to obtain decisive proof on such a subject, so difficult to show what the intention of the master was, that the really guilty may frequently escape. The circumstances which "tell" principally against him, ire, that before the vessel left this port, he told some persons who inquired about his voyage,that he "was bound to Charleston, if he could keep clear of the Florida Reef."' And also, that it was known and spoken of pablicly here, that he intended to run his vesse| ashore?and one gentleman who was about to write, or had written by him was advised not to do so, as she would not reach Charleston. The case creates considerable excitement here, and when closed you shall have the particulars. Respectfully, L. I'asivi.

Mr. Webster and President Tyler will probably both be in this city before the close of the week. Tke Navy of tfec United Htalrt. \o one of our national institutions occupies a larger share of public attention than the navy. It has contributed largely to the renown of the country, and the best feelings of the people are warmly enlisted in its success. It cannot be disguised, however, that this noble arm of the public service has lost something of its well earned |>opularity daring the few last months?at least such must be consi,l?...,l ,1.. If ..... ?,J? I... ,|.? nf r.x-nnt proceedings in Congress. In looking for the causes of change in public sentiment, we must not pass over the character and services of those who are prominent among the active?niemhers of the profession, and to the proporportion which their claims of service benr to the emoluments and honors they enjoy. The Navy Roard is notoriously a burden 011 the character and efficiency of the navy. This remark lias in the public judgment become an axiom. General expectation is therefore anxiously turned to the success of the measure now before Congress for abolishing the Board. But the Navy Board is not the only incubus that weighs disastrously on the efficiency and popularity of the service. There arc unfortunately too many of the senior officers who are kept in the prominent commands, enjoying all the advantages of station, with scarcely a ground ot claim derived from active service to justify the preference they receive. We have no desire to be invidious in what we say on this subject ; and whenever we have occasion to introduce names we shall do so fearlessly. Let us look at the administration of our own navy yard. The officer in command of that station, al though n very worthy and amiable man, enjoys a reputation derived in great part from the brilliant services of his brother, the lamented Commodore Oliver II. Perry. What praiseworthy service has Captain Matthew C. Perry ever performed? What has been the nature and extent of his sea services ? Who has ever heard of his being absent from his city residence during the last ten years? Yet we find that while other officers are kept on active nnd arduous duty, or foreign stations, Captain Perry has always been permitted to occupy some pet command, where he could enjoy the honors and emoluments of his rank, without the burdens which belong to active and arduous duty. How many of his near connections and relations have enjoyed the like immunities and advantages? These are questions addressed to the understanding and common sense ot all who desire that partiality and favoritism should be excluded from the management of the navy, and that merit und service should he the test as well of reputation as of reward. A great deal has been said of late in and out of Congress, of the necessity that exists for economy in the administration of the navy. The public ut large are but little aware of the abundant room that still remains for the practice of that virtue. Is it known, or would it be believed, that while hundreds of honest and industrious mechanics and laborers lave been discharged unpaid from the Navy Yard, oecause the Government is without means to releem its obligations to them, n full band of foreign nusicians has been kept up at the public expense, md their delightful music may at any time be heard rom amidst the shrubbery of one of our Commodore's beautiful gardens, whenever that functionary 1 entertains his large circle of lashionable friends with a dinner or evening party. The exquisite harmony of German and Italian music, must serve greatly to alleviate the pangs of hunger which the poor mechanic and his starving family are suffering, while they wait patiently at the gate of the Navy Yard for their hard-earned wages, without the hope of future employment. Is there not some room for reform in this, as in other matters that effect the character of the navy 1 Let the people look at these things, in order that the poor and needy may not alone suffer from the depression of the limes, but let those who have all their lives basked in the sunshine of Government favor, be taught to bear some portion of the burdens which weigh so heavily upon all classes of public industry. We may have something more to say on this subiect,and we shall speak our thoughts plainly. Though we are no friend to favoriteism.or monopoly, we are true friends to the navy of the country. Thf. Cuques of the Democratic Party in ritis City.?The prospect in view of the selection of a Democratic Governor in this State at the ensuing fall election, has revived the odious and contemptible systjpof dis(>ensing of the lucrative and prominent otmfjc in his gift, through the influence of private rhVyiwi, composed of a body of men who are as soulless as they are anti-democratic. Four of these associations have already been organized, each having their candidates for nomination, and all having some kind of an office in prospect as their share of the spoils. The Governor has ia his appointment the lucrative and comfortable situation of Health officer, on which depends the Resident Physician and Health Commissioner. Then comes the five trustees of the Seaman's Fund and Retreat; then the six wardens of the port, and three harbor ill i !ers. But the most imnortnnt. evrem tin. Il?nlil, Officer, are the rirh and speculating places of Inspectors of tobacco ; pot and pearl ashes; flour and meal ; Measurer General of Grain ; Inspector of Staves; and Quercitron Hark ; Inspector General of domestic distilled spirits; green hides and skins ; flaxseed ; and Weigher General of merchandise ; also six Inspectors of beef and pork, seven of sole leather, and six of domestic distilled spirits. Some of these are worth from 10,000 to ?16,000 per annum, or have been made to yield that sum, and therefore they are rich bones to get the picking of The names of those selected by these several clique*, who are the very blood-suckers of uny honest party, will be served up, and then let the young democracy of New York make their pick, their choice, and try their hand at a race for a share of the spoils obtained by their activity, their energy, their zeal, and their honesty. Let us see whether they will submit to the controlling influence of such corrupting cankers on the body politic, w ho cry honesty, but never Tractise their professions when dealing among their own friends, if other measures will accomplish their own secret ends. We shall see. Look out for a great, grand, and terrific explosion, such as will make the unterrified locos of the sixth, the "Butt-enders," th e" Up-enders," nnd the " Subterraneans,' sture with astonishment and wonder. The Weather.?After two days of most insufferably hot weather; the most insupportable that we have hnd the whole summer; we yesterday were blessed with a delightful thunder storm, a few bright flashes of lightning, and two or three smart showers of rain which washed the streets, and did more good than all the Street Inspectors for the last three < months.

Simpson opens the Park Theatre this evening, with u strong male company tor comedy, consisting oi Burton, Abbot, J'lacide, Fisher, Browne, Billy Williams, Ac. ; but the ladies, with the exception of Mesdames Wheatley and Vernon, are scarcely up to mediocrity. Thalia still lies in her shroud, without muchchauce of a resurrection, and Apollo is not recovered from his potations with Pan ; though Mr. Simeon intends administering to him a few bottles of soda water, and in two or three weeks gel him on his legs with ' his wild harp slung beside him." The only difficulty to be encountered in that desirable effort, would be that of engaging a good tenor, there being no English tenor singer in the country, excepting Braham, who it would be difficult to enlist in a theatrical engagement. As basses, Seguin and Meyers are unexceptionable; and of sopranos we have a number of a high order oftalent, such as Mrs. Sutton, Mrs Seguin, Mrs. Hardwick, Madam Otto, Miss Taylor, Ac. Leader of the Band, Mr. Penson, without whom to organize an operatic company would be useless.

The Columbus is ready for sea, and will sail the first fair wind, for Morocco.

It was set out last spring at Hempstead Ilarbor, L I. City Intelligence. The Ring.?The contemplated prize combat between James Sullivan, the victor of Secor, and William Bell, of Brooklyn, comes off this day, and thousands will be on the ground, as spectators. A number of steamboats, chartered for the purpose, leave their various piers at eight o'clock this morning for the scene of action, which will not be known until the boat that carries Sullivan reaches the ground, he having won the toss. The men are both certain of success, although the backers and friends of Bell will make no bets except with odds in their favor. Bell is a better match for Sullivan than Secor was, as he has more skill and is a much more active man, though not so strong. Sullivan will fight about Kit) lbs , while Bell will reach 170 at least The stakes are 9300 aside, and the outside betting will leach #10,000 before the "mill" is over. The police of this city, and also of the county of Westchester, are prepared to prevent the scene from coming off in their jurisdiction; the impression, therefore, is that it will take place out of this State. Sullivan is an Irishman by birth, and Bell an Englishman. In the " milt " between Sullivan and Secor,they fought 67 rounds, and it lasted one hour and three minutes. The knowing ones think this battle will be terminated in 40 minutes, and bets are pending to that effect. The Herald being, as it always has been, a perfect mirror of the age, in all its beauties and deformities, will contain, on Tuesday morning, a full and accurate report oi this contest, with all the attendant circumstances. Should it come oft'in time, the result will he found in the second edition, issued at two o'clock this afternoon. During the evening,Bell will be at Christiansou's, (late Stoneall's) 29 Ann street, and Sullivan at the Arena, 29 Park row. We understand that Ned Sprague, through his friends, has challenged the conqueror of to day's " mill," which has been accepted by the backers of Sullivan, and a sum put up us a forfeit. No doubt that Bell, if he wins, will follow suit. The steamboat Superior, as will be seen by advertisement, leaves the foot of Chambers-street, at 6 o'clock, and the foot of Koosevelt-street, at halfpast 8. Tiie Loaves yet in tuf. gift of thf.

The Tariff?Long Speeches?Nomination*. Tlie Tariff bill hint not been fin.illy acted upon in the Senate, but the vote is expected to be taken shortly. It may be defeated on the find vote, but enough, either whigs or democrats, are ready to give way to secure its passage. The business of the House has been of very little public consequence to-day?private bills, principally. The anxiety respecting the action of the Senate on thctaritf bill, has been intense all the morning, and the Senators have gone on with the discussion as deliberately as if the session had just commenced. Long winded speeches are bad enough at any time, but on an exhausted subject, at the end of a nine months' session, they are insufferable. Among the nominations now before the tfenate, are the commississioners under the treaty with the Choctaw Indians. They are Mr. Claiborne, editor of the Natchez Free Trader; Mr. Starke, of Mississippi, the gentleman who testified in the difficulty between Messrs. Wise and Stanly; and Mr. Graham, formerly assistant editor of the Cincinnati I'epuhlican, and a warm friend of the President. The editorial chair of the Kepublican seems to have been a stepping stone to executive favor. General Harrison always regarded this paper, as the chief instrument in securing his election. It formerly had a daily circulation of nearly eight hundred, and was conduced with great solemnity. General Harrison promised Todd, trie principal editor, a full mission, and Graham, his assistant, a mission of the second grade. President Tyler carried out the wishes of General Harrison, very properly, respecting Todd, although he was not for the ottice ; and now he has provided for Graham, unless the Senate should throw him out, a result not at all improbable. In any event, the President has done all that the friends of General Harrison expected. The announcement of the rejection of John Howard Payne, was a mistake. " The wish was father to the thought." There was no serious opposition to the nomination, and he was confirmed without a division. Captain Clack, who was sentenced to be dismissed from the Navy by a Court Martial, and the sentence approved by the President, has been nominated to the Senate for re-instatement. The oflence with which he was charged was not of a military character, and there is believed to have been n misapprehension on the part of the Court. The Italian Opera. Mr. J. Gordon Bennett;? Dear Sir,? Receive my thanks for the Rood opinion you are pleased to entertain of me in your paper of Tuesday last, respectingthe Italian operasforthe ensuing winter. I must tell you that there is nothing positively decided, but still 1 must say, that it is certainly my intention to combine with tnyselffouror five of the best singers in the country, for the purpose of producing some operas. I therefore had an interview with Mr. and Mrs. Seguin, and I find both disposed to join me in the speculation. The o|>era that I have in view as a commencement,is a splendid one, from the celebrated Mozart, "The Marriage of Figaro," and there canndt be another more adapted to the occasion; because the " Princes of Denmark" are five. I mean to say that the success of that opera depends entirely upon the talents ot five artists?three ladies soprano and two bassi. The other parts are secondary. My plan is this, and 1 am convinced that the opera will produce immense effect, if cast as follows:? Myself Figaro ) ? . Seguin The Contc Almaviva ) Mrn.tSeguin Susanna Soprano Mad. Otto Contesaa Almaviva Soprano Mrs.Horn or Mr*.Daily II I'aggio Cherubino Soprano Don Basilio Mrs. Horn I Don Bartolo. Sig. Martini Antonio Mr. Latham | Don Curzio' Mr. Meyer (Marcellina and Barbariua are little parta.) With this proposed cast, the opera cannot fail; for the express reason that there are five principal singers required to personate the five Princes of Deamark, and also five others, inferior characters. Mrs. St rrON can take her turn and perform some other opera, after the Marriage of Figaro, and many other good artists may congregate together, if they are willing to do so. This is, however, a trifling thin?. The most important point is to raise a subscription for twelve or fifteen nights, and the second difficulty is the theatre. The National being destroyed, we shall be obliged to have recourse to a concert room, und to have a theatre fitted up for the put^tose 1 wish the office of the Herald was symetrically large enough for the purpose, as I am sure you woulcl he kind enough to offer me the free use of your establishment I remain, dear Sir, Yours, trulv, De Begnis. 113 Hudson St., St. John's Park, Aug. 25.

Further about theGaiA.?We learn from the Intelligencer that the city of Washington came in fora full share of the northeasterly gale which visited this city on Wednesday night last. The storm commenced there about half past five o'clock, and about seven o'clock Pennsylvania Avenue, from First street to Four-and-a-half street, it is stated, was one continued sheet of water, resembling a broad river. In front of the railroad depot, front the overflowing ofTiber Creek, there was water sufficient to float boats and canoes ot large dimensions. The water rushed into all the cellars, and even into the rooms tin the first floors of many houses situated on the north side of Pennsylvania avenue, between First i a ?. ._ .* j .L _ huu o*g.:unu rircnp, Lau?iiiK tfrftu uaiimgc 10 tnr goods, provisions, liquors, furniture, Arc., which happened to he deposited there, und which, such was the rapidity of the Hood, there was no time to rptnove. In one dwelling, which is rather lower than the rest, near the depot, the room on the first lloorhad tourleel depth of water in it. The wornlen bridge erected at the beach across the Avenue, near the depot, gave way, both in the centre and on the north side. The stone bridge across the Tiber, erected by the railroad company, withstood the torrent of waters which passed over and under it without injury. In other parts of the city, the Hood, though not so destructive as near the railroad depot, did much damage to the property ol the corporation, and private individuals. The Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, between Georgetown and the Little Falls, was considerably inpired by the Hood. The loiw of property is set down in the Intelligencer at from between $15,000 to $20,000. Of this sum the corporation will probably suffer to the amount of $4000 or $5000. The oldest inhabitants sny that they have never witnessed so heavy and continuous a rain since their residence in the metropolis. We take great pleasure in stating that the storm, contrary to all expectation, did no damuge in Norfolk. The Herald of Thursday has the following article in relation to it: ? " We were not disappointed in our auguries of the weather yesterday. About four o'clock in the morning the wind freshened up from N. E. to a brisk gale, and the rain commenced falling profusely At 8 o'clock the wind hauled a little to the Southward of Fast, and continued to blow in gusts with great violence during the day, accompanied with rain, but without the rise ot tide caused by storms front a more northerly point of the comf ass. We have, as yet, heard of no injury ot any magnitude. Some "trees and fences have been prostrated about town. The erteets ot the storm at sea and on the coast have no doubt been disastrous to a very great degree." In the Chesapeake ltav^lbe ffale was verV severe.

Otrcifo S< merit?T%e Hmld in (hreeo--PolxtueRrhgion?A Pic-nk Party?Retnte from DroitmIMjr. J. G. Hrx.vrrr, Esq.? HF.AR Sir :? Though numerous your correspondents, I believe you have none in this part of the world. I am, therefore, induced to give you some information concerning the events of our place, as they transpire. Should this meet with your approbation, I will endeavour to " catch the 'manners 'living as they rise," and inform you ot all the most brilliant events, atneurs, iVc., as they are going on among the-fashionables. The scenery around our beautiful village is grand and picturesque, and afl'ords many facilities for amusement; but there is a dullness pervading the business community which throws a dark pall over almost every branch of society. We find but little to amuse or interest us at present except the NewYork Herald ; and, strange as it may appear, there are but few numbers of vour dailv paper taken in this place. The host of applicants assembled at the Post Office every evening, each desirous of being the first to borrow it, was scarcely equalled by the unfortunate office-seekers who hastened our late President Harrison into his grave. I think if you would send your travelling agent this way, authorising him to take Pennsylvania State scrip on subscription for your paper, it would be measured out to you by the bushel, in the same way that Rathburn Marsh measured out their legal proceedings when they got their costs taxed against the New York and Erie Railroad Company. There have been various attempts during the season in our village to get up something upon the social, moral, ana political arena, to dispel the gloom which the hard times and pecuniary embarrassments have thrown uround us; but all have been unavailing in consequence of the great diversity of opinions. Upon the social stage great and wonderful have been the displays to determine whom should wear away the palm of aristocracy. Upon the great stage of religion and morality, actorahave played such fantastic tricks before higlt heaven as made the angels weep, and this too under a pretence of saving souls from the misery in this world, and the damnation in the next, which themselves will scarcely escape. Upon the political arena long and arduous have been the debates in which individuals have asserted their claims to democracy. I will only trouble you with a few reflections upon the first of these three classes. You would doubtless be much amused to see the mock aristocracy of a village like this, undertake to imitate the flights and movements, of the nabobs of your own city. Hut a few dayseince, a small party ofthe self-styled aristocrats who arc daily seen riding through our streets in their fine carriages, with steeds gaily caparisoned, were seen wending their way o'er the hills and through the dales," loaded down with baskets and boxes, on a pic nic. After selecting a beautiful and romantic spot in the wild forest, die cloth was spread?the cold repast which had been prepared by the delicate hands of the fair participants, was laid out?then came the glittering array of bottles and glasses; and from the warm libations that followed, one would suppose they had truly wandered far front the great scene of temperance reform. The first toast was drank by the 'gallant Mr. A y, to the angelic Misa M k ; the majestic Mr. H d then drank to the lovely Misses A y, " lie deeply drank, drank in their smiles, and oft did heave a sigh." The young and beardless Mr. M k, from Ithaca, then gazed with admiration upon me tviisses i* y, wno naa numoerea twice Ins summers ; he cast n bashful glance at the younger Miss M??, as if half disposed to confer the honour of his toast upon her; at length he filled the glasB of the eldest Miss P y, and drank to her safe return. But alas! how unfortunate that such a sparkling glass should be quaffed it so late a l>eriod of their revelry. It was late, and some began to talk of home ; as they patrolled along the wild banks ot the noble Susquehannah, plucking the wintergreen and the wild flower, a deep crash was heard upon the hitherto quiet and unrufHed stream ?and now a faint and mournful scream reached the listening ear of the gallant A , and he plm.ged from the high and rugged bank into the deep stream below?a moment ol deep anxiety pervaded those who remained upon the bank, and Miss P was again embraced by her sweet companions. The joyful and the mournful part of the scene had passed ?and now came the ludicrous. This small and select party soon entered the cottage of an humble farmer, and in a few minutes the tall and slender form of Miss P was attired in the plain and modest habiliment of of a short country girl (modest, 1 mean, when worn by its owner ) The contrast between the fashionable dress, with a full bustle, a prominent bust, and the short plain dress, which lacked about eight inches in length, afforded great merriment to the humble cottagers who saw them pass. Leander. News from Rhode Is band.?The trial of the Suffrage prisoners, including Seth Luther, commenced at Newport on Friday. Disaster at North Bend.?A private letter from North Bend states that when the steamer North Bend burst the connecting links of her boiler in pas' sing that place on the 17tn instant, on her way from Cincinnati to Louisville, most of the passengers were on the upper decks gazing at the mound where repose the remains of the lamented Harrison, to which circumstance they attribute their escape. Several of the crew were scalded, and the boat having been brought to off North Bend for repairs, Mrs. Harrison promptly despatched offers of any assistance in her power to the afflicted, which were gratefully received.
