Holy IVeek in Rome.?An American in the Vatican?

I leave here tomorrow morning for Marseilles, and of course will he my own poit-boy to that city of ihis and the enclosed letters. Our present intention is to take the steamer for Spain, which will afford an opportunity of touching at Barcelona, Valencie and other cities on the coast. On our arrival at Malaga, we purpose to visit Grenada, Gibralter, Cadiz, Seville, Toledo, Burgos, &c. <Sec., cross the Pyrenees to Bayonne, go to Bordeaux, and then return to Paris. We have juat completed the grand festivities of Holy Week, to witness which, (1 learn lrom the police,) there are not less than 33,000 persons from foreign countries assembled here in Rome. This is the last week in lent, and intended to commemorate the passion of Jesus Christ The first ceremony took place at St. Peter's on Sunday, the 9th inst., which was the consecration and distribution of the nalms bv the Pope. Among those who aniiroaehnd him for the purpose of receiving them, I was not a little surprised to find several English officers in full uniform, who went through the humiliating ceremony ot kissing his foot. An immense concourse of people were present?seats were provided fot the ladies on platforms, who went in full mournin?, and no gentleman waB admitted within a certain distance, unless in similar costume and dress coat Among the display of uniforms of strangers, that of Bustamente, General and ex-President of Mexico, was the grandest, having quite a profusion of diamonds on his badges and collar. The Pope, after being carried in and out, seated in a highly decorated chair, borne on the shoulders of a dozen (>crsons, returned, and taking a seat on his throne, which was richly ornamented, assisted at mass, the service ot which was very fine. On the 13th I went to St. Peter's to see the benediction. At about noon, the Pope made his appear ance, in his usual 8tate,at a balcony in front of the church, when the crowd assembled in the piazza mostly knelt down. After the blessing the bells began to ring, accompanied by a salute from the cannon at the castle of St. Angelo. We then proceeded to the saloon in which he waited upon table, serving in person the thirteen apostles, as they were called. The table was decorated with flowers and small gilded statues of the apostles. The dinner was profuse and apparently very good. Although the Pope handed them the plates, thev were presented to him hy bishops on their knees This was to show the Pope's homtli ty, I presume. He also washed the leet ot 12 pilgrims, and pertprmed otner ceremonies in St. Peter's, for wuich, however, I have too little taste to undertake a relation. On Good Friday, some relics were shown from an upper Gallery of St. Peter's, said to be part of the real cross, point of the spear and handkerchief of St. Veronica, which retained the impression of the face of Jesus Christ in blood, she having wiped his faoe with it during his sufferings. The greatest display took place yesterday, being Easter Sunday. The Pope performed mass in person, with great pomp, assisted by the cardinals. The vast aisles of the builcfing were filled by the people to suffocation, except a square formed by the troops?the platforms were filled with ladies, and the effect was gr ind beyond description. Even this was exceeded a short time afterwards by the display in the piazza, when the Pope was brought again to repeat the ceremony ol giving his blessing to the multitude assembled below. The troops were present, and on his appearanre, the cannon, bells and drums gave him a deafening salute. The neonle knelt, and it i? said thai there were not leas than 150,000 present on this occasion. It was certainly a very effective and imposing ceremony. Our position was on the top ol the circular corridor, where there was quite a display of beaucy, as well as a commanding view of Uie whole. In tho availing, took n carriage and went to see the illumination of St. Peter's, which was magnificent beyond conception. On our arrival the whole facade, the lofty dome, cross and ballon top of it, together with the corridors around the piazza, were lit up with thousands of lanihorns, tastefully arran ed so as to strike out the features of the architecture in the chastest style, and without anv profusion of ornament. When the clock struck eight, the bells rang a peal, and instantaneously the whole church, dome and corridors, were in a blaze of light, from the immense number of fires kindled on them, perhaps by means of pitch or some such combustible material, systematically arranged T he eff-ct was magical and well worth a visit to Rome to witness. We afterwards wsnt to the Monte Pinces to get a dis'ant view of the same. The whole building appeared one blaze of light?the cross, which is about 450 feet high, (as high as the Pyramid of Cheops,) somewhat brighter than the rest After writing the above, we proceeded to take our position among several other Americans, on a balcony which we had secured overlooking the Tiber, to witness the fireworks from the castle of St. Angelo, and which was to be the closing scene to the festivities. My expectations had been raised very high, Irom the reports I had heard ot them, but were more than satitfied. I never before lelr the inefficicncv of language an on this occasion. No descrin. tion can give the least idea of this magnificent scene, and it is well worth a trip across the Atlantic. When the clock struck nine the cannon from the castle gave the signal tor the opening display?which wan a burst of thousands?perhaps hundreds of thousands?of rockets, so disposed as to imitate an erup tion of Vesuvius?the whole sky was in a blaze, and the number was so great that flames rose a considerable distance over the castle. This was succeeded by a splendidly illuminated cathedral, the spires of which towered on high, and which was some 200 feet in length. The whole building appeared to sparkle with diamonds. After a gorgeous display of fancy hreworks which covered the whole castle, it was caused to assume a brilliant crimson colour, (probably by reflection) of which the smoke that was hovering over the scene also partook At times bursts of rockets of a peculiar description would cause a heavy shower of purple and pink rain, accompanied by immense flocks of birds and serpents hissing through the air. At intervals a brisk feu de joie with the accompaniment of heavy artillery proceeded from the castle. This splendid scene kept constantly changing to fountains imitat ing those at Rome?the falls of Tivoli?or some new and attrac'ive shape, until a filial eruption of rockets like the first, if called on hereafter to name the most stupendous and attractive scene I ever witnessed, I should have to answer that I never beheld any thing to compare with the girandola of the castle of St. Angelo. Philadelphia. PniL*rEi.rniA, Satu ay, May 18. Dear Bennett ? Yesterday quite an ^interest was excited by the sudden nnH linejuertpd arrival of fhe Orent West. ern, and the Herald, an timial, ahead of all its competitora, was eagerly sought alter. Hy the way, the able and interesting reports given of the anniversary meetings during the week, have afforded much amusement Tom their raciness and humor. A wide field for the same kind of literature exists in this city, and could you, in your columns, afford sufficient space for similar reports, it would doubtless enhance the value or your paper in this State. It has been currently reported in town, that Mayor Scott was more frightened than hurt on the late thrilling occasion. He has not yet made his appearance in public, although his wound is of a very trifling character. Shipman was taken to his lodgings for examination, immediately on his apprehension, yesterday alternoon. Charlotte Cushman had a most cheering house at the Walnut last night. The house was filled to the ceiling, and, at the present reduced prices, it is calculated 9400 were taken at the doors. Dan Marble has not come tipto the expectations of his Irienda rtilsbee, who has been playing at the Arch, is nearly as good, with less pretence. Forrest has refused, it is said, an ofler at theWalnut, for reasons unknown publicly. The concert for the benefit of the Gaudaloupe sufferers was poorly attended. 1 no r rencn innaDilantaof the city were almost exclusively its only patrons. Yours, in haste, Thorax.

The Attorney General, Legare, has returned to Washington, and it is said will be put in the temporary charge o( the Bureau of State. Upon his recent visit to Ills kinfolk here, bis delight seemed to be in recognising the playmates of his youth and all his old acquaintances. Nilkcetold us a famous story of a swimming leat, and of the awful fist of the indomitable Hugh?Righton says he was always a hard student, distancing all competitors, and the very devil at Greek?writing, reading, and talking it as if he owned Athens, and not Charleston, lor his natal city. Wilson has a tale of his once bothering Judge Richardson with such a cloud of civil, canon, Teutonic, Breton, Gothic, and other barbaric codes as almost set the old gentleman crazy. But it wits among the descendants of the Huguenots, that his elastic spirit and playlul fancy breathed the genial atmosphere and found the home of joyous youth. Happy conformation of matter and mind, that can thus fay aside the cares of State, and enter into the enjoyments of sweet retirement and doinesiic peace. It is among the felicities of the life of this great jureat and profound scholar, that the tempests of Karty could not shake the esteem in which he was eld by men of all shades cf opinions. Thus Birhop England loved him with an ardor due the defender of civil and religious liberty in lb28 With Bisho|>s Rnwpn umi ( Kp wiiu mm i h? lanf 1 nrr ni* <> Itrn. tlier. The S ate rights party made him Attorney General of South Carolina. General Jackson sent him Minister to Belgium. Poinsett, Petigrew, Huger, Bennett, George 8. Bryan, and |Dickson, were among those that suggested his recall, and sent him to Congress It was there, with the animating incentives to action which can only be duly appreciated by those who arrive at that national and social height that he exhibited those vast stores of erudition nnd glowing eloquence which has given him n place, by the common consent of the nation, among its great men. Mr. LegHre is not a politician, in the party acceptation of that word ; he is too intellectual to mix adroitly with party men, yet his pure character lor integrity and moral virtue, benevolence, patriotism, and justice, must make him a valuable support to President Tyler's adminintration. Mr. Poinsett is also here, and looks to be in the enjoyment of excellent health; the life of a planter, therefore, must be more congenial to his feelings than were the anxieties of the Bureau of War lie is one of the most frank, true, generous, and kindhearted of men. The old veterans of the revolution and their widows and orphans have cause to bless ! him. While he was in office, although he approved ' of the severe scrutity which the Commissioner of I Pensions, Mr. Bdwards, instituted lor the prevention of fraud, he yet threw no obstacles 1 in their way: but once satisfied of the justice of the claim, he look a pleasure in acting promptly on the decision of the ruiiunissioner. There has been a serious difference among the members of the Hebrew congregation. Forty out of sixty voters are in favor of an examination (among other matters) of the origin and obligation of keeping so many holidays. They aver that the true ones are duplicated; they state that, in those ages of confusiou which followed the irruption of Alaricand other barbarians, the traditionary rites and time honor* ! festivals of their lathers were for a time disused c neglected, and that at the return of a more tolerei ' -'re, their ancestors in the faith labored to resto- them, but in consequence of the i r.perfect state < nxi.onomv and mathematical calculations, they were unable to fix with certainty nn thp nrppiop f htif nnrrhf to hp Irpnr* anri k?n/>n in order that llie venerable days of the law should be observed, they resolved to keep two days in order to make surety doubly sure. This the reformers say may now be corrected because of the more ad vanced state of knowledge and science ; but the minority, embracing as it does, a large portion of the learned as well as the most respectable, and venerable ana pious of the body, protest against this, as an innovation of the reformers, and are determined to hold fast in the old paths Every friend of religion and of this ancient race, must regret this occurrence The impious of all sects laugh at these exhibitions as indications of weakness or folly. Hut the reflecting and the |ust desire to see both parties acting with moderation and forbearance, and consenting to give to each full time for reflection, and then to leave the adjustment of their disputes to persons of known integrity, and of undoubted attachment to the honor and interests of their name. Our city " is" governed by a chief and twelve aldermen, and a long array of boards and officials. The aldermen and boards are governed by one Mayor. Complaints at first hinted at, and but whispered, are now growled oat, loud and. deep, against a system of dictation, to which (he dynasty of Hayne affords, it is said, no parallel This gives the aspirants lor office line capital U> work with, sad they are busy. Others are for striking off the salary altogether, and reviving those goof times, when Carolians could be found, whose fortune enabled tliem and whose capacity fitted them to preside over the city without pay, and with distinction. In the mean time, the present incumbent is not idle. He is a business man?active, prompt and sagacious ? He has commenced a more efficient system of cleaning the streets, and looking after the lamps, that ought tobe but are not lit. Even the hideous nuisance that for years disgraced the city, and filled the neighborhood of Gadsden's wharf with excre tiona and with the horrid and sickening odour, an sing from an accumulation of nameless horrors and disgusting objecla?of rotten carcases and filth, and putrid substances?even this, thai.Its to the fears and the hopes of a contested election and the press, is about to be abated. President Tyler is winning his way into the very hears of the Southerners, by a wise and impartial distribution of the Federal revenues.

Such a rumor, however, creates little excitement in our community, as the recent assassination of Corlis, the attempt to kill the Mayor of Philadelphia, the brickbatting of John fjogan to death on Friday, and numerous other offences of like character, have rendered the public so familiar with scenes of blood, that astonishment or surprise at a murder is scarcely expressed. Great Railroad Excitement?Yesterday afternoon about six o'clock, a little girl named Bridget Mehan, aged about nine years, while attempting to cling to ose of the Harlem railroad trains, containing three cars, as it was passing up Centre, near Anthony Ptreet, slipped and fell, the wheels of the rear car drew her so close in contact, that a flesh wound, three inchea in length, was inflicted on her left ancle, and the toes of her right foot partially bruised. She was taken up by some persons passing,who immediately conveyed her to the City Hospital where the wounds were examined, and strange as it may appear, not a bone was found broken. Her shrieks on being carried tliroiiuh the street uruve rise to everv Heaeriniinn r,f rumor, and in a few moments it was currently reported among the crowd that had assembled, that both of her legs had been cut oftj and that she died on reaching the Hospital. This rumor spread like contagion through the ward, and in a very few moments several hundred people had assembled, some <>( whom were venting all sorts of epithets against the railroad and the corporation lor allowing it to pass throagh a street where children are as numerous as hoptoads after a shower in June. The crowd gradually enlarged in numbers until some lew more daring than others, placed paving stones, from a pile near by upon the rails, in order to stop the cars as they passed up the street. The police were here called in and the obstructions removed. Orders were sent by the police for the cars below Chambers street to paes up, and as each went by it was hailed by a portion of the assemblage with " three cheers," " three groans" and " one more." A request was sent by the magistrates of the lower police to the agents ol the cars to prevent their coming down with passengers below Canal street, which was complied with, and the crewd then began gradually to disperse. During the passage of the last car up the street, some ruffian threw a paving stsne that passed over it, and struck a small boy on the body, injuring him severely. The police gave cftaBe after him, hut he escaped. Not the least blame can be attached to the driver of the train of cars, as the horses were going at a slow pace, and the child would not have been injured had she not attempted to cling to the car without the knowledge of any person connected with it. Arrest of William Ford.?Bill Ford, alias "Buffalo Bill," celebrated for his feats of knock down-and-drag-out-ism, as practised along the wharves, to the terror ol Bteamboat agents, runners and waiters, was arrested yesterday morning, by officer Relyea, while he was in the act of stepping on shore irom one of the North River steamboats. Ford Rtsnds charged with committing, several months since, a violent assault and battery on William Francis, steward of the steamboat Telegraph. In default of bail he was locked up Another Counterfeit.?On Saturday night, a child belonging to Mrs. Grace McGee, of No. 3 i James street, received a $5 note of the Commercial i Bank of Florida, which she gave to her mother, I wno attempted to pass it on Robert McKinisterj of fll) Catherine street, who pronounced it a counterf'uil r> ii/l liu/l f I111 m/iman avpautnrl Kir tKu uroteL * kut not'appearing against her, she was discharged. The following is the tilling up of the note:? "The Commercial Bank of Florida promise to pay Gen'l Case or bearer, on demand, Five Dollars.?St. Joseph, Feb. iOth, '43. MAIIC FASHION, Prest. Jnaa A??, flashier." A Rich Pauper.?Yesterday morning, a man calling himself William Patterson, applied to Justice Stevens, of the lower police, to subscribe to an affidavit that lie had made in order that he miaht recover property amounting to about #75, including #40 in gold that he hod left last fall at Davis's pawnbroker's shop, on a pledge ticket for #5 On enquiring, it appeared that he had entered to the Alms House last lull, and remained there during the winter at the expense of the city, notwithstanding he had the above named money, and about #00 that he had deposited elsewhere. " The pauper" recovered his money and ciothtng, but before doing so, the Alms House Commissioners should have been informed, who then might have compelled him to pay his winter's board, and thus punished him for the imposition practiced upon the community in obtainingentrance to the Alms House, when he had means to support himself. Common Council.?Both Boards ?f Aldermen meet this afternoon, at 5 o'clock, and afterwards go into joint ballot, to make such appointments as may have been agreed upon in caucus. Presidents Purdy and Brown will also appoint the standing committees of both Boards, for the year, on whose action, investigation and decision so much depends in this great and flourishing city.

Fanny F.lssler in Breeches?Fanny Elseler caused almost a great crush on the occasion of her benefit in London lately, when she appeared in the " Hal sous Louis Quartorte," as a courtier of that brilliant period, and danced with Mile. Dumtlatre attired as a fine lady in appropriate costume. An English paper says " Torsturnto the all-conquering Fanny Elaaler, now about to leave us, and the graceful Dumilatre, as they appeared when treading that lofty measure (the minuet ds la cour,) with atately dignity, yet perfect eaae and quiet, neas.
