It is, however, proverbial tnat the reverse has hei n the general practice of some Aldermen, who seldom or never acted magisterially,except in discharging prisoners from wa oh houses, and the practice, with all the evils which have resulted from it may be attributed to th? inconsistency and injustice of the present system. 'h. The Police Department should be under the control of a chief o er ; lor although there would be districts and si-Clio , there would be but one department, and uniformity ot practice in the several districts, and harmonious an 1 effective action when the main (oree of the Police should be necessary, could only be secured by the general super nteudence devolving on a competent head. iiiniT -v sma mai me vnyor 01 int- ?i? v/...?. vt?rittrat-C and the head of the Poliee : be it so ; and he i? equally the head of every other department ot the city ; for it is hia duty " to be vigilant and active in causing the laws an l ordinances of h government of the city to be duly executed and enforced," and " to exercise a constant ii|>?rvision and control over the conduct and acts of all subordinate officers." Yet he cannot conduct the business of the departments, and we accordingly have a rhief Engineer of th" Fire Department, and Superintendents for almost all purposi-s. No man who has any knowledge of the duties of the Mayor, or the business of the Police Department, will pretend that the Mayor can peilorm his daily duties in the Mayor's office, his duties as Presiden' of the Board of Health, a* a Supervisor, and as a director ol various institutions ? no man will seriously contend that the Mayor can faithfully discharge all the official duties here alluded to, and alao devote to the Police Department, and circum. stances connected with it, that time and attention which would enable him to discharge the important duties of chief officer ofPalice Tbe duties of the Mayor are already sufficiently numerous, and what has been said above of Tolice officers devoting all their time to the business of the department, for the purpose of being well informed, applies with full force to the chief officer 411 communications of great importance should be made to the hoa l of the department, for the ends of justice have been dsfeatcd by magistrates and officers being engaged fn the pursuit of the sam>- object, without a concert of action; andtha* the chief offic er may not be unjustly held responsible i ir the character and conduct of the suhordi. nates, and that proper discipline may be maintained, he should be associated with the commissioners in the expelling ol iucompetent and improper members. 7th. All laws and regulations for the health and cleanliness of the city, as well as for the security of the citizens and their "property, should be enforced* by the Police Department, for the violation of the ordinances could not escape their notices, and the laws woui 1 he rigidly enforced. It is# not intended to recommend any new organization of the Board of Health, but to suggest the propriety and necessity of their views and measures being carried into full effect liy a police prepared for any emergency. The subject of properly lighting the city at night is entitled to much consideration hire; as the security of the citizens from accident or design makes it important; and whether it be faithfully done, or shamefully neglectej, may only be known to those persons who are on duty nil night in the streets: the duty of lighting the city should therefore be performed under the direction of the police, specially as the city would sustain no loss by making tbe station houses the depositories of oil that rema'ned af. ici me itiuij"! nitu ueeii Mippnen. 1 nt1 suggesuons nere made in relation to the duties of the police are strongly recoaamended by motive* of economy, as their adoption would render uonecesssrv the present arrangement, or any other, respec'ing street inspectors, inspectors of pub. lie places, of omnibusses, hacks and carts, and numerous ther special officers But as the duties of some of the police officers would require them to be continually in particular wards, they should not he subject to the or lers of several aldermen at the same time, and the subdivisions of the districts should, for this and other reasons, be limited to the boundaries of the wards, and each district should comprise entire wards, The most strict scrutiny should he exercised by the department, within legal rules, of course, into the manner of conducting business by pawnbrokers, keepers of junkshops, and dealers in second-hand articles, for the facilities afforded for the disposal or stolen good* en'ers largely into the calculation when rubbery is meditated. And to a police that will r> quire the prompt and continual actiOD otits members, in all parts nf the city, must be confided the power, and the imp rative duty assigned, to prevent ?treet-hee: line, which leads to idleness and crime; and to such a police mu?t we resort to exterminate the hawking of obscene papers and libidinous prints, the great source of venality and profligacy. The population of th- city has increased rapidly within the seven years last past, and there is certainly as much necessity for au efficient police now as there ever was, and the lollowing remarks made by Chancellor Kent in ISSfi, mat now he repeated with increased lorce:?"When we comedo consider the actual wants of great numbers, and the incessant temptations to heedless and lawless pursuits, to pilfering, to intemperance,to disorders of all sorts, in such a dense population as exist* in this city, and w ho are always more or less under excitemen'.and the impulse of the coilisnns and the storms of the passions, we cannot but be deeply impressed with the importance to our peace and safely of an BCtive and stern police.'' 1 have here given a general outline of the improvement which is reqnired.in my opinion, in the police department of th city, hy th- wants and interests of the'eitizens; but it would demand more time to complete a plan than 1 conl l devote to the subject, and abilities rar beyond my fwet-ii'ion*, to give it practical eifect. A system ?f poire might have all the characteristics herein contained, and fad to produce the necessary reform: but I believe the uggesti.-ns here made susceptible of detail that would constitute a system under which, with good and efficient officers an I mi n ruffianism would, to a very great extent, be subdued: evil d?er? driven to places less dangerous lor them to operate; temptation to crime removed from the rising genera'ion; and the lives and property of our citizens secured. But the atte mpt should not be made to rtlect th-ae changes suddenly or simultaneously; they must be produced carefully and gradually, hut with a view to the ultimate object; the system should be put in operation not only without commotion, but imperceptibly,except by its results; it must b> free from stool-pigeoning, and the use if secret-service money, and must in all things fully accord with the institutions o( our country. I am not prep ired to state what would he "the probahle increase of expense, if any, attendant u|ion auch improvement,^" at 1 have not ascertained the cost of the present system, or completed a list ol officers and men, with their amouat oi pav, for the plan in contemplation; but as the annual cost of each watch post-n'he city is $912,60, two men at $1,25 i>er night,and a* many of the present city and ward officer* would oe unnecessary if the change should be made, I think th" require,] improvement would be accomplished without an> increase of expense, and that gf *-i mr vuiinniviiuu 01 Hir lirCWBrtry IIUIIUUI^H, IOe TPlorm ivr-in would he less ex;>ensive than the preterit, ' A workhou e.to which persons should ho committed who are not fii subjects for the alms house, and yet ought not to he committed to the |<enitentiary, may he classed with the improvements required, hut the consideration of the subject must ho omitted for the present.

The letter bags of this steam ship will close at j Harnden's, Gilpin's, and at the Post office, at a quarter to 4 o'clock this afternoon. important from iyindkkhook.?We understand from the chateau (it Kindtrhook that Mr. Van Buren and his friends will go into the democratic National Convention, on the dtitrict syetem of electing the members, which is the principle contended for by JohnC. Calhoun and his friends. Mr. Van Buren, it seems, is perfectly willing to take his chance, on any reasonable principle of compromise, sooner than divide or distract the democratic party. The time is now the only point of difference, and ' Mr. Van Buren's friends suggest, as the latest day, the month of December, 1843. What do the friends of Calhoun say to this! If the friends of Mr. Van Buren, Calhoun, and all the other democratic candidates agree to unite on these principles, and to take their several chances, the contest of 1844 will be one of the most beautilul ever seen in this country. Mr. Clay will have hard work before him. New Police System.?We give in another column, in the proceedings of the Corporation, a new scheme for the organization of a City Psltce, emanating from Justice Taylor. It differs, in some respects, from the plan heretofore given by Mr. Whiting, but we suppose an admirable system could be formed out of the best elements of both the plans. It is really time that something should be done in this important matter. There never was a better opportunity than the present. If the democrats will not unite with the whigs in agreeing on some scheme, we trust that the latter will take the re sponsibility on their own hook. Now is the time for action. Prophet Miller and his Millennium.?While the Fourierites are opening subscriptions, and offering an interest of 8 r*r cent, by way of beginning their great industrial millennium, we find that Prophet Miller is equally busy on his side of the fence, in preparing for the end of all things In reference to Mr. Miller's views, we find in a late paper, called the " Signs of the Times," the following articles of faith put forth by William Miller, on which perfect reliance may be placed :? Svnorsis or Miller's Views. 1. I believe Jesus Christ will come again to this earth. 2. 1 believe he will come in all the glory of hii Father. 1 alto believe he will come in the clouds of heaven. 3. 1 believe he w ill then receive his kingdom, which will be eternal. ? 4. I believe the saints will then possess the kingdom forever. 5. 1 believe at Christ's second coming the body of every departed saint will be raised; like Christ's glorious body. And I believe, also, that the righteous who are living on the earth w hen he comes, will be changed from mortal 1o immortal bodies, and with them who are raised from the dead, will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air, and so be forever with the Lord. 0. I believe the saints will then be presented to God blameless, without spot or wrinkle, in love. 7. I believe when Christ comes the second time, he will come to finish the controversy of Zion, to deliver his children Irom all bondage, to conquer their last enemy, and to deliver them from the power of the tempter, which is the devil. 8. I believe that when Christ comes he will destroy the bodies of the living wicked by fire, as those of the old world were destroyed by water, and shut up their souls in the pit of wo, until their resurrection unto damnation. 9. I believe, when the each is cleansed by fire, that Christ and hi* saints will than take possession of the earth, and dwell therein forever. Then the kingdom will be given to the saints. 10. 1 believa the time is appointed of God when these things shall he accomplished. 11. I believe God has revealed the time. 12. I believe many who are professors and preachers will never believe or know the time until it comes upm them IS. I believe the wise, they who are to shine as the brightness of the firmament, Dan. xii. 8, will understand the time. 14. I believe the time ran lie known by all who desire to understand and to be ready for his coming. And I em fully convinced that tome time between March 2tsf, 1843, and March 2ltt, 1844, according to the Jewith mode of camputatinn of time, Chriet will come, and bving all hit tainti with hi at; and that then he will reward every man a* hit work shall be. From this it will appear that Father Miller takes a whole year of grace on hia calculation of the end of all things. Also, it seems that fire is to bs the agent this time?and nor watrr,a> in the time of Noah. No doubt the warm weather, and the recent earthquakes indicate something. The best way is to be ready?and first of all, let every man get ont of debt. The Nett-ology.?The new system of philosophy discovered by Dr. Buchanan, late of Kentucky, does not, it would peem, prosper in Albany, whither the Doctor has gone to desseminate it. Some wag of a student, who had been in the hands of the magnetisere for a month or two, and out of whose case they had manufactured a vast deal of capital, has turned the tables upon them by pronouncing the whole a humbug, and that he had never experienced the slightest effect from the operations of the philosophers. At the close of one of Dr Buchanan's lectures, the gentleman who had submitted to be "operated on," and who had been exhibited to a wondering audience, as sound asleep; as having his vision impaired or improved; his arm paralyzed or strengthened; his sensesaffrcted as by intoxication, at the will of the operator?publicly declared that neither on those two evenings, nor on other occasions in this city, at the houses of the prominent Mepmensts where he had been "operated on" with apparent magical effect, had he ever been put to sleep, or ex[>erienced the least impression from their manipulations or farcical mummeries; and that he was fully convinced the whole "system," so called, was gross delusion and humbuggerv; in the expression of which opinion ihe audience almost unanimously concurred by general acclamation. Thf. Pomkrs Case.?A lecture is to be delivered this evening before the Berean Institute, by Mr. Wallace, the "Kentucky Poet," on the merits of the Somerscase, defensive of Captaiu McKenzie The next thing we will be favored with will be a popular melo-drama founded on this affair, at the Olympic or Chatham theatre By the next steamer, at all events, we will have the opinions of the Euro[M-an prree, and of the naval men of England and France. These opinions will be given * ithout prejudice or partiality, and will be entitled to great consideration. We believe that the naval history of France and England furnishes no parallel to this melancholy transaction. Debate at the Tabersaci.f..?The debate on capital punishment was continued at the Tabernacle last night. Horace Greclv and Dr. Cox were the combatants, and the price of admission wan only a shilling a head. This is the age of cheap amusementa, and the pious young men and maidens who conscientiously avoid the play house, can now enjoy each others society at these calm and sanctified dehates, without fear of experiencing one unholy throb from the temptations of the enemy. Reai. Estate for Sai.k ?a peremptory sale ?f extensive productive real estate property in various forms, ami calculated to suit purchasers in every line of business, is to take place this day at noon at the Merchants' Exchange. This property will be sold bv J. Rleecker's Son, under the direction of ft O idwise, Esq., master in Chancery. Perhaps on no occasion has a more favorable opportunity occurred lor turning cash to advantage. Persons anxious to secure property for comparatively trifling means, are now afforded an excellent'and a rare opportunity Common School*.?In the last annual report of the Superintendant of Common Schools, w? are furnished with many interesting details respecting these invaluable institutions. The number ot children who have attended the schools during the year reported.exclusive of those in the city of New York, was 571,130?the number in attendance in New York is reported as 27,f>19?making n total ot 598,749 The average length of time during which the schools have be;n taught in the several districts was eight months. The beneficial effects of the es ablishment of ths district libraries are spoken of in enthusiastic terms. Nearly two hundred thousand volumes have been added during the last year, and the whole number at present in the libraries is 815 231. Great care is exercised respecting the exclusion of improperworks, and very few volumes whose tendency is even equivocal, have been admitted. Grateful mention is made in the report to the munificent donation of an excellent work, entitled "The School and the Schoolmaster," which has been recently made to each of the district libraries in the State by James Wadsworth, Esq., trom the influence of which, in the dissemination of sound principles and practica] knowledge on the interesting subject of elementarv instruction, much good may be confidently anticipated. There can, indeed, be no doubt that the ays tern of district libraries has been eminently successful, and that, in the words of the report, it has contributed more effieiently to the spread of useful knowledge than any other step that has ever been taken by the State in the great cause ot public instruction. Mr. Young refers with much feeling t* the callousness manifested in many districts, with respect to the dilapidated condition of the school-houses A great number |are represented as being in a most ruinous state, and quite destitute of proper accommodations for the pupils. Many of them consist of a single apartment only, and have no proper buildings attached to them. " The dilapidated buildings?destitute of the ordinary con leniencies and decencies of life?the unhung doors, broken sashes, absent panes, stilted benches, gaping walls, yawning roofs, and muddy floors," are described, and excite the most painful feelings in behalf of the poor children who are obliged to spend so many hours in such comfortless and unwholesome huts. The proper remedy for all those evils is the appointment of properly qualified deputy-superintendents, men who have sufficient talent and information to understand the nature of their duties, and sufficient honesty to discharge them with fidelity. There is one topic, adverted to in tfe report, of great imports nce;and one which cannot be too forci bly pressed on public attention?that is, the general establishment of normal schools, and a reasonable increase in the remuneration of the teachers. With great truth Mr. Young observes?" That educational science is far behind all others, is a fact recognized and conceded by all who are competent to judge. On any other science a vast amount of skill, ingenuity and perseverance has been expended to bring them to their present degree of perfection ; whilst this, the most important of all, has been confined to a dull routine, or left to the caprice of accident." It ia utterly preposterous to expect that a man can successfully teach others, who is himself altogether ignorant of the science of teaching. In order to be qualified for entrance on ,the duties of other professions, men are obliged to undergo some sort of preparatory training, but the teacher is supposed to hiive an intuitive sagacity, skill, and judgmeat, which enable him to discharge the most important duties of his office with efficiency and success. The first great step in the amelioration of human society, will be the adoption of such means as will secure a large number of competent and instructed teachers. Let the profession of the teacher be thus elevated to its appropriate dignity, let teachers be made worthy of the name, and let them receive an adequate compensation, and we will soon have another state of things. But so long as teachers are paid the wages of boot blacks and footmen, and have about the same scientific and literary attainments as those useful members of society, we cannot expect that our youth will be particularly distinguished by a high degree of moral and intellectual culture. Court Martial in Philadelphia.?The Court Martial dh Lieut, Tansil closed last Saturday. The evidence has made some singular developments relative to the discipline and conduct of the navy, in the Florida war. The following is a portion given last Friday Mr. Msouiaa?Some of the conductor theofficers on Ionian Key was vary rowdy and very disorderly.

Tbk Fikkxkn's Ball, at thk Park, Last Nioirr, wasoneof the moBt splendid affairs seen in this city since the B07. Ball. The entire decorations were of the most gorgeous description, and in the bestftaste. The stage part of the theatre presented pre^jaHv the same apiieannce as on the occasion of the Boz Ball, and the figure of Mr Pickwick on the curtain which concealed the tableaux, stood out in as bold relief as ever. Nay, his benevolent countenance seemed to beam with added complacency, Hnd did not at all appear out of keeping vith the appropriate emblems of the joyous scene which were tastefully arranged around. The pillars in front of the dress circle were elegantly festooned with evergreens, and aboye each of the lower boxes was suspended the certificate of an exempt fireman. The front of the second tier was adorned with the banners of various volunteer military companies, and the banners and other insignia of the various engine and hose companies were interspersed all around with great taste. A profusion of hunting fell in graceful festoons from the dome to the lower boxes. The house was lighted by a great number of splendid chandeliers. The eflectof the whole tout entmNf, when viewed from the rear of the stage, was grand and impo aiuq in inr mgneai oegrec. An immense number ot tickets had been disposed of, snd the company assembled was just sufficient to fill the house comfortably. The dresses of many of the ladies were superb, and all were arrayed with that elegance and taste for which the daughters of New York are so justly celebrated. Ainid such a blaze of loveliness, it were invidious to particularise, and we therefore refrain from attempting the difficult task. The whole arrangements reflected the greatest credit on the members of the committee.

H. ATW1L1.. Satuidat, Jan. 99, 1948. To the Editor oj tht Courier f Enquirer : Sia?In your paper of yesterday morning, you have taken occasion to attack me in an unjustifiable manner? ostensibly in consequence of an article which appeared in the Herald on Tursnay or weaneaaay 01 im? wo?-*? charging that the article vu mine, either bi writer or author, and giving aa a reason lor your conclusions, that extracts were made and included in it from an "unpub lishej report" made by me as Chairman of the Committee on Police, Ac. As your whole article ia based upon this assumption, I will state that the report was made to the Board of Assistants soma two or three weeks since, and being adopted by that Board, became, with all accompanying papers, a public document, accessible to any one who may desire to see it; it is on Ale, I presume, where all such p iners are kept, in the office of one of the Clerks of the Common Council. I have never had a copy of the re port, nor have I seen it since it became the property of the Common Council, nor caused any portion of it to be furnished to any person whatever. So much for the report. Whether or not I am " worthy of the place I hold," 1 am entirely willing that " every Whig" who honestly desires to seethe City Oovernment economically and honestly administered, should Judge. From motives such as you sav actuated you in your attack upon the Contract Committee, I have done in this connection what 1 consi dered I could not leave undone, without a gross breach of duly to the public ; aad I am gratified to know that my h iimble efforts to economize in the right quarters have not he--n without their indirect influence upon several points. | With respect to the article in the Herald which you charge upon me, I know nothing of ita paternity, neither who wrote it nor who is its author. I suppose it is what it purportstohe, editorial Data for the statement! it makes in figures, and much more .could have been obtained from public dbcumenta on file, by any person disposed to make the examination.? If I had undertaken fo furnish matter to a public print for an attack upon a political friend in this case, I should probably have made a somewhat stronger case of it, full as the one in question may appear to be. I in common with, 1 believe, every, member ol Jhe Common Council, did suppose that the attack upon the Contracting Committee, contained in the Courier of last Friday or Saturday, was caused by the proceedings in the Board of Assistants, which had for their tendency the diminution of the expense of the public pi inting for the departments, and a correction of the abuses that have been practiced under arrangements like the present. The subject was a common topic of conversation at the City Hall, after the appearance of the article ; consequently every person in and about the Hall,from that time.mnst have known what the impressions of the members were. As to the statement that "Mr. Snowden has in some way oftendel me." it is not true; though it is an argument which I believe was used to some members of the Board to prevent them from sustaining the report, and to the members of the Committee of which I have the honor to act as Chairman, to prevent them from authenticating it. 1 have never, to my knowledge, met that gentleman, and do not know him when I see him ; he has never given me any cense of offence that I am aware of. In conclusion, permit me to say that, in my opinion,(and I believe the public will think the same,) you resort to the same means ot gratifying a personal feeling which you so often charge upon the paper that you have spoken of in cvnnecuuu wuu my uhhik, via ; jikibvubi nuu^r , ?uiu there were no mere troth in the article which you have atatedto be mine than there it in yours, ?o far aa it concern!) me, the Editor of that paper would deserve all, and more than all, the epitheta you have beatowed upon him. Yours, Ac. R. H. ATWILL. The above is as capital a dose as ever the " devil upon two stteks" received. Naval Intelligence.?The Jacob Bell towed the U. S. ship Independence from the Navy Yard, to an anchorage in the North River, yesterday morning. The Pensacola Gazette states that the U. S. steam frigate Missouri has received orders to sail for the North. Letters from Rio de Janeiro,of the 13th December, state that the Delaware, Columbia, and Decatur, were at Montevideo?the latter expected at Rio daily. The Concord, which sailed from Rio on the 2d July last,for the Eastern coast of Africa, had been expected for the last month. The John Adams was also on the coast of Africa, and expected at Rio by the 1st of February. The schooner Enterprise was then on a cruise. The harbor was without an American man-of-war. The U. 9 sloop-of-war Marion, sailed for the Spanish Main from St. Thomaa, on the 8th of January. Theatrical and Musical Concert.?Tlie grand complimentary Concert for the benefit of Mr. C. E. Horn, is to be given,this evening at Niblo's Apollo Saloon. A great array of musical talent is engaged for the occasion, which promises to be very brilliant and successful. Mrs. Sutton and De Begnis are giving Concerts at Albany with.accustomed success. The theattes in this city have been crowded,since the reduction of the prices of admission At the Chatham they have got up a magnificent pantomime, entitled ' The Black Raven of the Tombs," which was produced so successfully in London, and had a great run at Niblo's last summer, under the title, of "Mazulme, the Owl." The Olympic is doing a fair business. A piece entitled "The Beauty and the Beast," very slightly altered from a London piece, has been received with great approbation. Welch's Olympic Circus, at the Park, has been pre-eminently successful. The House has been crammed every night. Mr. Welch has great tact and judgment, and has never failed in attracting public attention to his elegant places of amusement, and has been equally successful in the more difficult tank of keeping it up. Theatricals are dull in Boston. Buffaloes are the Mr. and Mra. Brougham are playing at Philadel! phia. Dinnelord has taken the new American theatre in New Orleans. Mr. Hackett is playing at Mobile. The Park Company are walking to and fro. awaiting the re-opening after Mr. Welch has abdicated. The Irish in America?Mr. Robinson repeated his Lecture on Ireland, belore a large and respectable audience, atlWashington Hall, last evening.? Mr. R. is a young gentleman of great promise? His elocution is easy and forcible, and his address was full oi a glowing spirit of liberality and patriotism. CO Welch's Unequalled Company appears at the Bowery Amphitheatre for the last tune this evening. They drew a most extraordinary house last evening; long before the doors were opened, throngs were collected about the place, and many were compelled reluctantly to leave, unable to procure admittance. They return to their old quarters at the Park to-morrow night, and we anticipate will be heartily greeted by the crowds of patrons who have already manifested their delight by unequivocal tokens. The magnificent pantomime of the " Devouring Ogre," which has been in preparation for some time, will be produced to-morrow night, with all the dramatic, scenic and equestrian effect which the unlimited facilities of Welch's extensive establishment enable it to give.

Powers, Bracken, Clavenger, who have already gained an elevated positjpn among the most renowned sculptors of the old or new world, have emanated Irom Cincinnati.

This indicates in the most cheering manner, the growing strength of the legitimate drama in the young empire of the West. Just in this way did the old play-wrights of Athens dramatise their domestic tragedies, which, "married 10 immortal verse," still kindle our passions, and cause our liearta to thrill with pity, sympathy and awe. "For particulars see small bills." Why do they not send us one of those deeply interesting documents 1 Do let us have one, Mr. Clarke, by the next mail. The reference made by the editor of the paper in which the announcement appears (the "Daily Inquirer") is too good to he lost. Here it is:? This in Banniftor's night at the National. Banniater ia a favorite with the Queen City play goers, and aince he haa joined the Waihingtoniana, he ia decidedly 10 with ua, not only as an actor, hut aa a man. The Sotnera and Colt tragediea will both be praaented, with other pleasiug varieties. Thecasts are good, and we venture to aay all will be well auatained. Thisisoneof the most touching notices we have met with lor along time. The delicacy and epigrammatic point of the allusion to the little frailties of the great tragedian, and his first appearance in n new character, are probably unsurpassed in diurnal literature. "The Somers and Colt tragedies will boil1 be presented, with other pleating varieties." It would appear from this that a slight dash of eccentricity mingles with the refined dramatic taste of our modern Athenians. It may be however, that when we,in this less favored region.reach an equal degree of refinement, we shall enjoy with equal gofit such "pleasing varieties" as the Somers and Colt trage dies We should be much ^ratified, at all events, in obtaining some insight into the nature of these "pleasing varieties," and therefore we repeat our request to be favored with one of the "small bills" by the respectable stage manager, Mr- NapoleoB Buonaparte Clarke. City Intelligence. The Last Financier's Tuck.?On Saturday night a vary respectably dressed man stepped into WoodV collar, Broadway, a few doora above Scarf's popular and genteel hotel, and ordered one hundred oyatera to beaenttothe corner of Green and Bleecker streets, stating at the tame time, that the boy who took them must besupflied with change for a three dollar note, as that was the smallest note the gentlemen at the house had about them. The oysters were sent according to order , but before the boy had reached the house he was met by the person who had bespoke them, who said that the gentleman of the house had got tired of waiting, and had went to the cellar, and left the note,with an understanding that he was to receive the change from the boy. The boy not suspecting any fraud, gave the fellow the change, amounting ta nearly two dollars, and on arriving at the house, found that no oyster* had been ordered, and when he returned to the cellar, also ascertained that no bill had been left there.
