Y.- The Herald can be had of Mr. 1.en is, Rensselaer House. Subecriliens leaving their address will be served regularly. European News.?The Great Western, whose regularity has been so long established that her arrival may be anticipated within a few hours, has this morning been out thirteen days, and may therelore he upon us belore our next paper is issued, bringing with her news of the most intense interest from deeply agitated Europe. Look out then for the Herald. Bailing of the Columbia?Steam ship Columbia, sails from Boston on Saturday, and her letter bags will close here to-day, at hall (iast four o'clock, at the Commercial Exchange. We shall issue an edition of the Herald at two o'clock to-day, containing the latest news from every part of the Union, made up for the foreign reader. The Difficulties in the Cabinet ?The anxieties, troubles, and darkened anticipations of the future, do not api>ear to diminish at Washington. Captain Tyler is in a state of most deplorable dubiety, and even John Jones' stolidity fails to preserve him from the contagion of uneasiness and fearfal apprehension. Never had cabinet council better reason than this to exclaim? "Oh ! Gertrude, Gertrude, When sorrows come, they come not lingle spies, But in battalions!" cuius anu contrivances ot an sorts nave oeen aireauy resorted to, and the practised ingenuity which suggested and applied them, seems to be now decidedly at a stand still. One of the most melancholy things connected with the history of the administration, has been the manner in which Captain Tyler, notwithstanding all his well-known tact, judgment and sagacity, has been made the cat's-paw of desperate small politicians of all complexions. The history of his connection with poor sld defunct Noah, is of course fresh in the recollections of the public. A similar termination of his alliance with the obscure journal to which he was handed over, on the death of the "Union," started by Noah, now awaits him. The exploded Hebrew labored hard to induce the Captain to throw himself into the arms of the "young democracie." With equal disinterestedness and affection, the Aurora of yesterday endeavors, in a very elaborate article, to show the President the absolute necessity of seeking relief from the existing difficulties and embarrassments, by calling to his aid Mr. Calhoun, and a number of his associates. The conductors of the "official organ" in this city? who cannot, of course, be expected to see an inch beyond the tips of their noses?are quite innocent of the effect which their new movement is designed to produce,to wit,a schism in the democratic ranks in this locality, and a correspondent stengthening of the.bands of Henry Clay. The "organ" administers some advice to the Captain about as delicately as the country pedagogue j applies the argurncruum a posteriori to refractory school-boys. It reminds "honest John" that he has "very poorly taken advantage" of circumstances resulting fromlthe; vetoes, the only decided measures. it affirms. of his administration. It savs thnt John Tyler mu?I lake the step now pointed out, or abide the consequences. Alas! poor John Tyler, well mays't thou exclaim?" Save me from my friends." And yet how clear and palpable is the only safe, enlightened and patriotic course which the President should adopt! He occupies at present that position which, if properly appreciated and understood, would enable him te give efficient organization and supremacy of influence, to that great mass of the people who, sick and wearied of the chances and trickery of the unprincipled political speculators wiio are so busily engaged in look ing after their own petty interests, are anxious to secure to the country the blessings and security of a righteous and patriotic government. Not in the arms of any political (liquet, but on the second sense and enlightened patriotism and general intelligence of the people, hould John Tyler seek that repose, su|>port, and cordial regard for which he now so anxiously looks around him in vain. The absurdity of supposing that Calhoun, or Kass, r ?y of the intriguing aspirants tor political fortune, would connect themselves with the administration, is too apparent to require formal exposure. They have other fi-h to fry at present. The Purity of Political Patriotism.?The IVaatxington Qlobt copies, with great satisfaction, ilie article in the Plebeian, ridiculing the Bunker Hill celebration. This is one of those instances in which political traders forget their cunning, allow the mask to drop, and give us, for once, a faithful exi>osition of the sincerity of their professions of allegiance to the sacred cause of truth and liberty.? We do not believe that there ever was another occasion on which the demon of party spirit and selfish political intrigue, was so thoroughly exorcised for the time, from the bcsomsof all honest hearted men ?all genuine lovers of their country and its tree institutions The feelings and sentiments which it naturally awakened, were even purer, freer from aught of a defiling natuie, we will venture to say, than thos- which animated many of the men who took part in the valiant struggles which that noble monument is d? signed to commemorate. Can he be under the influence of true patriotic feeling, who finds in such a celebration an opportunity of venting his spleen against political opponents 1 Can h" be a loverof hiscountry who would, after such a hallowed'mingling of men of all parties seek to excite local prejudices, and foment sectional differences ? We have been much gratified in observing that the conduct on which we have been thus reluctantly compelled to animadvert, has called f orth the indignant rebuke of the press in all parts of the country, irres|>ective of party. The cause of Mr. Van Buren will not gain much by the rabid, unpatriotic course of his prominent organs. ( mrrescondence from Rio dr Janeiro.?Truth is required from all our Correspondents, but if we are occasionally led unconsciously into error, we are ready to make a proper correction. A letter appeared in yesterday's Herald, which a brother of one of the parties therein referred to, asserts lobe untrue in some of its details. He gives his name thus:- "John Bissell, 4H Wall street," and to him lorapi rusal ot documentary evidence in relation o iU?* attsir, we are desired to refer all |<ereons who have ether interest or curiosity in the matter. Hkap or ma Ni?r Department.?The boston boat denies the correctness of the report that the Hon. David Hensliaw i? to tie called to the Navy Department. Tri e Bint..?The (irand Jury off Washington have found a true hill against Dowden, the Clerk, , *rg' I with abstracting cancelled Treasury Notes Irom tiie oitic* of the Treasury Department Columbia Collkqk.?This venerable [institution has been in quite an interesting slate ot lermentation tor several weeks past. When it will subside, and what will be the result?whether it will stop short at the saccharin*, or go on to the acetous stage, time alone can disclose. The chiel agitating causes are certain pecuniary difficulties, involving the necessity of retrenchment, and the reduction of salaries, and the appointment ol a professor of mathematics in the place of Mr. Anderson, who has resigned the chair, which for twenty yeans he has filled with so much credit to himself and to the institution. Mr. Anderson resigns, we understand, with the intention ot going to Euroj>e, where he will probably reside for some time. His resignation is a subject of general regret, although his place can be perhaps supplied. A still greater subject of regret, is the necessity that com|>els to a consideration of a plan tor retrenchment, by reducing the salaries of all the nrnleHsom lo about fibren hundred a year. However, economy is the order of the day?beet aud bread have come down, and why shouldn't learning 1 For the chair of mathematics, there are a number of candidates. We will briefly enumerate the claims and chances, as fur as we have been able to ascertain, of the most prominent. First, there isthe reverend aud eloquent Mr. Peck, assistant pastor of Christ Church. Mr. Peck's piety is supposed to be fully equal to his scicuce. If he could succeed in establishing the converse of the supposition, he would stand a pretty good chance. Next, there is Mr. Gill, prolessor of mathematics in St. Paul's College, Flushing ; a thorough mathematician. Thirdly, there is Mr. Sylvester. This gentleman is no doubt in every particular a splendid mathematician. He is an Englishman, of Jewish descent, and was not long since appointed to the mathematical chair in the Virginia University, principally, we have been informed, upon the recommendation of Babbage and Sir John Herschell. He had not been long in the chair, when he got into some difficulty, the circumstances of which we have not been able to ascertain, with his students, and not being supported by the faculty, he resigned. Mr. Sylvester may have been right, and we think that is quite likely, that he was; but this fact, together with the fact of his being a foreigner, will perhaps operate against him. A fourth candidate is no less a person than the present distinguished professor of chemistry and natural philosophy, Mr. Renwick. It seems that with a degree of disinterestedness worthy of all praise, he is willing to brush up his mathematics, which must have got a little rusty, transfer himself to the chair of mathematics, and allow his son to come in as professor of chemistry. At least such is thereport. The arrangement would have the merit of being a kind of practical solution of the general equation ; such an one as Biot or Babbage never dreamed of. A fifth candidate is Mr. Anderson, a younger brother of the recent incumbent. We don't know much about him ; but the name presupposes cleverness. We come now tofthe two principal candidates, uciwccn wiium me result 01 me contest is supposea really to hang. Professor Ross and Professor Hackley. Professor Ross at present fills the chair of Mathematics at Kenyon College, Ohio. He is a graduate of West Point, and, we believe, held for some time the position of assistant professor of mathematics in that institution. He has all the West Point influence, and as one of the military magnates was heard a few days since to say "he'd be d d if Ross shouldn't have it," we suppose he stands a first rate chance. Mr. Ross is undoubtedly an ex cellent mathematician, and further "deponent saith not." Professor Hackley is also a graduate of West Point, and for some time also held the position of Assistant Professor of Mathematics, from which he was appointed Professor in the University of this city. This chair he held for several years until the memorable blow up in that institution, when the whole faculty resigned. He is the author of several minor mathematical works and papers, and of a most excellent treatise upon plain and sperial triganometry?and it is reported that he has for & long time been engaged upon an elaborate history of mathematics. He is also something more than a mathematician. He has pursued a course of law study, is a clergyman of the Episcopal church, has delivered lectures upon iiiBiuiy, iiiurm puuusopny, ana arcnueciure; ana like the distinguished mathematical profe?or of Dublin University, has dabbled, and with good sue* cess too, in almost all the branches of the human knowledge. His character as a man is of the highest, and unlike some of his competitors in getting over the pons astenoran, he has never jumped into the font. The contest then may be considered to be between these two. Ross is perhaps the best in pure mathematics, Hackley in the mixed; Ross is the best algebraist, Hackley the best geometer and the best teacher. One thing, however, is certain that which ever ol the candidates we have mentioned gets it Columbia Collcgejwill get full a^much mathematics as the mathematical school, j>ar txrtUcnct West Point ever had. At the last meeting of the hoard of trustees the Rev. Mr. Haight, pastor of All Saints Church, and professor of pulpit eloquence in the Episcopal Seminary, was chosen trustee. We think that no one will dispute the propriety of this appointment, either on the ground of eloquence, piety, talent, or learning. Repoktino.?The tributes from all parts of the country, to the superiority of our arrangements for reporting the oration at Bunker Hill, and the satisfactory manner, in which our reporter discharged their duty, continue to accumulate. Amongst other acknowledgments, we find the following in the Boston Notion" Ma. WaafTia'i Oeatiok as RaroaTzo in the New York Herald?Mr. Burnett of the N. T. Herald,deserves the greatest credit for the arrangments which he made for presenting his readeri with the earliest and best rej?ort of Mr. Webster's Bunker Hill oration?arrangements, which, thanks to the talent and fidelity of his reporters, were completely successful. A portion of the pre?), however, has done him g t at injustice. The fruits of his enterprize have been aJopted, and their quality de. rided by the pilferers. Borne papers stole without credit ?others who published interior reports, contented themselves with abusing his. In justice to Mr. Bennett, we must say that the report which appeared in his paper, was the only complete and correct report of the oration as ?po*?n?and no candid person who heard the address suid and has compared the reports published can refoae te endorse this assertion. The Herald of Wednesday is juatly severe upon the in onaiiguiiicuiii mauc ?v? iur attuiuiiiuiiBilUIl Ul the nawapaper reporter*. Juftice to the orator ai well ai to the public demanded that they ahould have been furnished with eligible aeata, where every word could hare been heard. Thii was not the caae, and the reporters of the Herald, had thev remained in the places originally assigned them, would have lost a great portion ol the or ator's discourse. The conductors of similar atfairs mast look to this in future. With reference to the concluding paragraph of this complimentary ariicle, we have only to remark, that we have every reason to believe that the drubbings which the conductors of these public affairs have so rej?catedly received of late, will soon discover their wholesome effects. It is completely in the i?ower of the press to command that courtesy and attention which can enable its representatives to discharge their duties with comfort and satisfaction. A Hint to Porrx-ak Orators.?We have greatly regretted the had taste and want of judgment which lead many popular aud excellent orators to make the most tormidable experiment* on the patience of their hearers Mr. Everett, who delivered an oration in the Pniversity Chaj*l the other evening, would do well, among others, to profit by our advice. Half an hour, or lony minutes, in extraordinary cases, would be a proper period for the delivery ol an oratorical address. Rhetorical efforts, like the essence of geranium, should be concentrated. Harvesting ?The catting of wheat ha^alr?*ady I be*un in some part* of Virginia. | Thk niw Mali bran?Iiiunoba CAsnuJUt.?The musical tod fashionable world were not deceived by our pre announcement of the extraordinary qualities of ?ignora Castellan as an operatic singer. We do not say they were not disappointed, for the indiscriminately superlative eulogies which are bestowed in advance, by the press in general, upon all new candidates for popularity in music and the drama, may have led them to suppose that our article was merely of the customary kind. We have, however, in this instance, as in most others, justi tied our claim to confidence. The Apollo Saloon was well tilled, with a highly fashionable and critical Hudience, through the interest bespoken by our columns alone. Among the company were to be j seen the well-known faces of all our principal dillttlanti and Professors, both foreign and native, including Mesdaines Calv6, Sutton, Horn, Otto, Maroncelli, Miss Clifton,tec.,and Madame Chigaray was there with all the senior pupils ot her fashionable seminary. Messieurs Timm and King introduced the programme with a splendid duett on the piano forte, and were followed by Signer Giampietro, in the Aria finale " Fra Poco a me ricovero," from the Lucia di Lamermoor- He is a singer of great correctness in taste, with an inadequate voice, apparently reduced by influenza. The Souvenir de Bellini, a grand fantasia on the air " Tu vedrai la sventura," from II Pirata, was inimitably executed on a sort of oboe, by Signor Paggi, and was as well received as any thing could, or ought to be, from such an instrument, by whomsoever played. It was not a perfect oboe, but some nondescript monster ingeniously generated between the clarionet, basoon, sea serpent, and flageolet, and which was evidently of too mixed a parentage to appear in decent society as a solo under any circumstances whatever. Signor Paggi has indulged in an ambition as safe, perhaps, as it is singular, in seeking distinction upon an instrument which none but a company of Callibans would understand. And then came Siqnora Castellan. She did not make her dibut in the Polacca from "I Puritani," as printed in the programme, but in the Aria finale "Ardon gl 'inunzi," from the Lucia di Lamermoor. She had not executed a single bar, unpretending as is the commencement of this Aria, before the whele audience was in a gasp of astonishment at the surprising qualities of her voice. There were " tones as if brought from other snheres." when romnnrtrl with thnap in whi#?h ih?> ear had been accustomed?pure, glowing and mellow?and yet as effortless as the respiration of luxurious repose. It had the effect upon the cultivated ear that a singularly beautiful luminosity has upon the eye, and as she advanced through the more diversified passages, surprise was enhanced to fixed astonishment. Every one felt that a gifted favorite of nature had unexpectedly appeared among us, even before a sufficient opportunity had been afforded to judge of the extent of her acquisitions through education. The word Malibran was heard in a spontaneous whisper, from every part of the room, evidently in reference to Castellan's voice itself, before any thing else could have been determined, and soon it became difficult for even the most experienced listeners to refrain from expressions of rapture before the proper pauses sanctioned the indulgence. But the first part of the concert having closed with this triumphant dibvt, the critical conversations immediately succeeded the enthusiastic applause amidst which sh? temporarily retired. Signora Castellan is a very young looking, singularly tair, lovely and graceful creature, rather petite in stature, a charming figure, most simply attired, maidenly and unassuming in manners, without the slightest grimace even in executing the most arduous difficulties of her art; and she instantly impresses the spectator aslwell as the auditor, that she blends the modesty with the aspirations of genius.? The permanent impression created by her singing, is that of wonder at her perfection and transcendant UL- ill oc ? : l - J onm >u u ttui/ic?mat 10, m every iiiiug sue uucb.? Besides this, she exhibits originalities, inseparable, perhaps, from genius of a very high order, in every branch of the music&i task before her. Her own mind presides over each and all,and without introducing excentricities to relieve common-place, she elevates the most familiar passages by the superiority oi her own views and high developements. In one particular she displays an unexampled natural power, as well as originality of thought, and that is in what is technically termed the sostentUo?the power of completely holding a note at a high range in the scale above another to which she descends, and which she assumes with a magical perfection of transition which mere art has never yet accomplished: the firmness of retention being equal to the vigor of the new grasp. The compass of her voice is indeed truly extraordinary, the most refined contralto being executed with a full, clear and even sweetness and distinctness, while the deepest soprano is fathomed with a confident and unembarrassed power which would excite admiration even without the contrast. The shake, the trill, and the ascending and descending semi tones of the entire scale, were achieved with infallible precision, and with a coneummate ease which relieved the most fastidiousjand apprehensive connoisseurs of all mistrust. There were a healthful elasticity and bounding pulsation in the varied tones of every passage, as distinct from ordinary and artificial resources as they were seemingly devoid of effort; and although her musical education has been assiduously cultivated under the first masters of Italy, its fruits were happily veiled, as they ought to be, beneath the profuse flowers and foliage of her still greater genius. In the second part of the Concert, she sang the Grand Duetto,"Tu Sciagurato," from II Pirata.with Sig. Giampietro, and it was inexpressibly beautiful. She then sung the Polacca, "Sou Vergin e Vezzoza," from the same opera. Paggi appeared again with his favorite tube, and was heard with increased applause. Signora Castellan closed the Concert with that well known and extremely delightful Rondo, "Ah! non credea mirarti," from La Sonnambula, in which she had an opportunity of displaying, as in a casket of jewels, the whole series of her previous brilliant effects, and of reviving every point of admiration that had been before so vividly enkindled. The entire audience simultaneously arose by a common and involuntary impulse, in a burst of irrepressible enthusiasm; and, acqutes cing in the call, she appeared before tliem with apparent emotion, amid the waving of hats, handkerchiefs and hands, and the applause continued for a long time alter she had again retired. It is admitted by common consent, and without any division of opinion which we have yet heard of, that no singerof such high ability, whether natural or acquired, or produced by both in unison, has appeared since the all wonderful Malibran ; nor does any probably exist who is so sure to ascend the hitherto unapproachable throne occupied by that Queen of Song. The Fourth op Jui-t worth $1000 to New Yore.?Our highly respectable and penny wise economical city fathers, have magnanimously appropriated the sum of #1000 to the celebration of our national birth-day?being nearly equal to the sum which Captain Stockton aivropriated to champagne alone when he entertained the I'res dent and suite at his country mansion at Princeton. Indeed, we may go farther and say, that it is probably nearly equal to the sums which will be respectively expended by most of the towns and villages throughout the country. From every part of the Union our exchanges bring in accounts that the ensuing Fourth of July will be celebrated on a more grand and magnificent scale than it has ever been before. But our own Common Council may be excused, partly on the ground that the recent entertainment of a " Democratic" President will cost the city, as it is said, some #3000, and partly because there is nothing in a Fourth of July celebration to serve any party purposes Business.?There arrived at St. Douis during the week ending on the 17th instant, filty-five steam, boats?about the samelnumber departed. Movements and Doinus.?The Hon. Abbott Lawrence, lady and daughter, have taken parage in the steamer Columbia, to leave on the 1st of July for Liverpool. Gknkkal Gaines.? It is not true, as stated by the New York Express, that General Gaines has been iu this city within a few days past. General llmiiMimitSl F.nuiaon the 20lh mat., on which day he waa to review the troops at Jefferson barracks. He was to leave at two o'clock, same day, with his suite. Gov. Boiick will be received at Sing Sing to-day, with public honors. Han. Judge Porter, of Louisiana; Mr. Owens, Georgia, Col. Totten, U. S. Army; Dr. Duncan aad party, of Natchez, arrived yesterday at the American Hotel. Father Matthew will not visit this country before next springy Private Express between Baltimore and St. Louis?The indefatigable Harnden, of Boston, has connected his line at Baltimore with an express to St. Louis. Through the facilities afforded by the British steamers, Harnden forwards parcels to the agent ol the line in Liverpool, where the enterprise branches off to nearly all the eapitals of Enrope, and to India, by the English overland mail. By this means, a rapid, safe communication is afforded at a moderate expense, for transmitting remittances of money and parcels of valuable effects to any of the Eastern cities, and in fact to almost any part of the civilised world. The Park.?Persons were yesterday employed to saturate the once green plots in the Park with Croton water, which was carried thither by many cables' length of hose, with the intention, doubtless to revivify the dead and dried up grass. Whether if so long a period had not elapsed that all such attempts to restore verdure where there is nothing but sterility, is not to hope against hope, it may admit of a question whether to throw volumes of water on herbage, while parched by the rays of a midday mid-summer sun, is not the most sure and hasty mode to defeat the professed object. Our city fathers may know how to govern a city, and yet be ignorant how to cultivate grass or a cabbage garden. Cheap Bathe ?If it were not for the evidence every day before our eyes of the shameful abuse of the blessings of the Croton water, we might suggest afew hints to the corporation relative to the various ways in which the abundant supply of pure water might be made conducive to the public health and comfort. One very evident and most desirable use to which this water might be applied is the establishment of public baths, at a trifling sum for participation in their benefits. We do not know any means so well calculated to preserve and promote the public health as this. But we cannot reasonably expect such a miraculous exertion on the part of the city government. They have far more important and pressing business to attend to. Well, then, if the corporation will not give the public the means of attaining personal cleanliness, comfort and health at a cheap rate, why don't the proprietors of the baths at the Battery do if! Mrs. Thomas's elegant establishment would be visited by ten times the number of visiters who patronise them at present, it the price of tickets was reduced one half. Rabineau should also take this hint; he can very well afford to do so, and if he do his present very respectable success will be redoubled. Hot?Hotrnr?Hottest.?The weather still continues most unconscionably hot. The thermometer in this city ranges most of the time between 80 and 90, with occasional trips to the 10's above and below. An Albany paper says:? " For the last few days our' quotations' of the ?_.L I ..I . I__ _J.._ _ I . wframcr nave mmiwu a ?icnay uuvtuiue in me ncm. Yesterday, at 3 P.M., the thermometer marked 91, and in some parts of the city 93. Fortunately for our farmers and gardeners, we have had frequent and abundant showers within the last week, so that we' have escaped the drought of which the people | on Long Island and in New Jersey are complaining so sorely." A Boston paper says:? " The weather is not only warm, but it is so intensely hot, that the streets are deserted by promenaders. Many of our citizens have removed into the couutry for the season. Another Libel ?uit.?We learn from the PhilidtlpKia Spirit of thi Times, which appears, by the bye, in a new and beautiful dress, that an action for damages has been brought against Mr. F. H. Duftee, No. 3 South Third street, for publishing a communication in the Forum, in which it was insinuated that the publishers of the Dollur Newspaper had defrauded the public, by paying that talented writer, Edgar A. Poe, Esq., $19 for his admirable tale of the "Gold Bug," instead of paying the prize of $100, as announced, to the author of ths best production offered them. We regret to state, from information received at the American, that Brigadier General Eustis died at Boston on Wednesday, of congestion of the brain. His demise promotes Lieut. Col. J.B.Crane, 4th Artillery, and Major M. M. Payne, 2d Artillery. Painful Rumor.?It is stated, in some of the papers, that Mr. Biddle is suffering at his residence at Andalusia, on the Delaware, under a species of mental aberation, brought upon him by sudden reverses of fortune and deep distress of mind. An American Seaman Assassinated?An altercation took place at Hio Janeiro, where some Portuguese and American sailors were drinking, when one of the sailors, named John Hayes, belonging to the frigate Columbia, was stabbed in the side. He survived but a few moments after the wound was given. Naval.?Prince de Joinville, with his bride, sailed from Rio de Janeiro, in the frigate Belle Poule, for France, on the 13th of May. While at Rio he paid a visit to the U. S frigate Columbia, and was j cviucnuy wen j?icii?ru wnu uir unlimited nosjuiaii* ty and gentlemanly conduct of Commodore Shubrick and his officers, during the marriage festivities. Balls and dinners were given on board the French line of battle ship Marseilles and the frigate Belle Poule, when all the American officers on the Brazil squadron were invited by the Prince. Naval.?The United States frigate Columbia is st-11 at Rio, where she intends to remain two or three months. The store ship Erie sailed for the Pacific, and the schooner Enterprise for Montevideo, on the 20th of May. Officers and crew all well. Thin Motrsns.?We see, by the Boston papers, that the "learned blacksmith" is lecturing to "thin theatres" at the Tremont. It seems the Bostonians will not patronise theatres in any shape, or under any management^ Convalescent.?Father Miller. How cool and comfortable the weather was while Father Miller was sick, but now he is getting well again, how allfired hot it does grow. When is the end to be? A Load.?The South America left our wharves an evening or two since with six hundred passengers, and herdeckB crowded with freight (' all descriptions. Among the passengers were some two hundred French emigrants, on their way to Michi gun ajin vv isconnn. wo have since heard that she perlormed her trip, without racing, in less than nine hours. Another Kkki,.?The heel ol an iron revenue cutter, to be propelled on Ericson's plan, was laid at Pittsburgh last week. Savannah?Unusually healthy. Sharspkark's Dramatic Wores and Poems ? We have received Irora the Messrs. Harper, the 8th and concluding number ol their edition of Shakspeare. This number comprises Hamlet, Othello, and the sonnets and other miscellaneous poems of the great dramatist. The whole occupies eight numbers, with nineteen illustrations on steel, at twenty five cents, and formsthe only perfect edition publiohed in the country. The numbers may be obtained at this office. Cltjr Intelligence. Ahothbb English PicurocBKT Abbesibd.?Another of the gang of English pickpockets that hare 10 long intented thin city andPhiladelphia was arretted yeaterday and fullycommitted.on a charge of grand larceny. During the morning, ae Captain Major Burgess, of the achooner High I'rieat, was patting up William street near Wall, he felt aome person twitch at hit coat pocket, and turning round saw a little red faced man walking close behind him. Mr. Nicholaa Cosgrove, who was pasting at the time then came up, and picked up a pocket wallet from under a root beer stand opposite, and handing it to Captain Burgees, told him that the wallet had just been taken from hit coat pocket by the little red faced man who was following close behind him. The rogue was immediately arrested hv (inntnin Riiivani iififtiBteil bv Mr. Cossrrove. and taken to the polioe office, where, to the astonishment of ell connected with the police, he wai recognised aethe celebrated pickpocket "Ned Hammond,"alias "Simpson,"who but three weeks since was arrested in this city and sent to Philadelphia on a charge of attempting to pick a pocket in that city. The wallet that he had abstracted from the coat pocket of Captain Burgess contsined $18'> in bank notes and a check for $43 U, which were restored to the owner. How this thieving rogue recently escaped justice in Philadelphia, is beyond our knowledge, although we have reason to suppose that "those there in power"could reveal the myBtery. Hammond is now awaiting the execution of a sentence to the Sing Sing State prison lor a term of years, which depends upon a decision In the Supreme Court Since this trial he has been arrested and admitted to bail in this city on a charge of picking a pocket at the meeting at Tammany Hall, and on the charge prior to the preaent wasinprisou in this city at the same time that "Jem Hose" and "Tim Hughes" were locked up, who have since been set at liberty. There are, therefore, at the present period,four charges of grand larceny against this notorious thief for the miserable and mean otfenee of pick pocketing, which we consider the foulest in the record of common crime. Justice Merritt very properly, under these circumstances, refused to admit Hammond to bail, and he wis therefore fully commited to prison to awuit his trial, which we trust will take place during the ensuing week, and thus rid sacietv of a rogue who should long since have been serving the people at hard labor in the State prison. The band of English pickpockets now in this country make their residence in Philadelphia, where Hammond resides, and by an organization and understanding with their associates and confederates are en bled to commit more depredations upon the public than any set of men that have ever been leagued together in this country, except some bank directors we could) mention. They havo means in abundance to buy off witnesses that may be necessary to secure conviction, and can always raise sufficient to procure bail for the release of any of their gang. Such means will probably be brought to bear to secure the escape of this rogue no?v held under four distinct and separate charges of larceny, and it, therefore, becomes the proper authorities to deal out pure and undefiled justice in his case. The practice of these Philadelphia pickpockets has been to visit this city in the evening train, steal what they can obtain on the route from passengers, and then prowl about our public thoroughfares during the day, and if successful,return by the evening or afternoon line to Philadelphia. If our police syetem was sound, the arrival and departure of all these well known pickpockets, thieves and rogues,could be known, and their practises detected during their stay in this city, but not one half of the present marshals who form the police, know them by sight or description. Instead of being placed, by arrangement of busiuess, in turn, in our criminal courts, where these rogues are examined and tried, this duty falls by mere favor upon a certain few, some of whom aro intelligent enough to make investigation while others considerfit not their duty to " know the ropes," unlets they are called uptn " to pull them." When are we to have a reformation in our police system ? Pray tell us ! Hammond was taken before Recorder Tallmadge yesterday afternoon on a writ of habeas ctrpus, in order to be again set at large on bail, but the Recorder very properly refused to take any security for the re-appearance of the rogue, considering that aslie was safe bound he would be safe fou id. Foaaxar?Officer William H- Stephens arrested a notorious offender named John Sexton, in a tea store in Grand street, on suspicion of burglary, but on being presented before the police, he was identified as the person accused of having committed a forgery in the month of January last, on Samuel B. Sturgess, No. 701 Chatham street, by passing to him as genuine a note for $92 31, purporting to have been drawn by William G. Dunn, ot the corner of Grand and Columbia streets, payable to the order of John Sexton, or bearer, at one month's date from December 2nd, 1842. On the 9th of January he received the sum ol $50 from Sturgis, promising to redeem the note within one week. Failing to do this, the note was placed in the Tradesman's Bank for collection, where it was discovered to be a forgery. Dunn,declaring the hand-writing in the body of the note to be that of Sexton,and the signature "William G-Dunn" a forgery, and that Sexton knew so wheu uttering the said note, a warrant was issued at the time for his arrest, but he managed to escape until yesterday, when he found himself in the clutch's of the law, and will now be tried on the two offences of burglary and forgery, the latter ot which is positive against him. Death by Falling from a Window?The Coroner also held an inquest at the City Hospital, on the body of James White, aged 37 years, who fell from the attic story window of his mother's house, No. 59 Anthony street, on Tuesday night last, and died about six hours after admir sion into the hospital. He had been an intemperate man, and on the evening of the fall he appeared out of his mind, as he usually was after a spree, and retired to bed about 9 o'clock. About three hours aftcr.his mother heard a fall, and ran Into the yard, and there lound her son in n sitting posture, perfectly insev.sible. The vessels of the brain were much congested, and the lungs and stomach exhibited the usual appearances following intemperate habits? Verdict accordingly. Died from a Fall on the Side Walk.?Between 9 and 10 o'clock, on Thursday night, the 23d ult., a man was discoveied leaning against a house on the corner of Rosevelt and Water streets, in a state of insensibility, and was taken by two men to the boarding house of Charles S. Clark, No. 51 Cherry street, where he remained for the night. Towards morning he recovered, and when asked if he had been hurt, said he did not remember. He had been under the Influence nt liminr hnt the inmates n>i. serving that he became worse during the following day, sent him to the city hospital. He was then in a state of insensibility, and did not speak up to the hour of his death, which occurred on the 36th inst., about 4 o'clock. On the physician examining him extemallv.some bruises of slight importance were visible; but on the post mortem examination the organs exhibited strong evi fences of his having led a very intemperate lite; but the immediate cause of his death was a serious effusion ot blood on the brain. From the evidence taken before the Coroner, it appears that about 0 o'clock on the evening he was found, he had entered the shop of William Fairgrave, a barber, residing at No. 133 ltosevelt street, and having ottered some impertinent attentions to the barber's wife, was shoved by him out of the shop, and fell upon the sidewalk. The jury, alter the examination of several witnesses, none, of whom saw the man struck or injured, returned a verdict, "that the deceased came to his death from injuries received on Thursday night last, which injuries were inflicted by some person or persons to the jury unknown; the jury further say, that they do not believe the watch, men stationed in that neighborhood discharged their duty faithfully on said night. Shoved off a Table and Killed.?An inquest was held yesterday, at the City Hospital, on the body of Thomas Lynch, who died there an Wednesday evening, from being shoved off a table by John Carson, at the porter house of Michael Crouin, No. 73 Centre street, while wrestling together in sport the same morning. They had been friends, and had a glass or two together, when the deceased said to Carson, go home and take care of your wife and horse. Carson gave him a shove, which caused the deceased to fall on the crown of his head. On rising, he said, "I am lost." He was then taken to the hospital, where he died in a few hours. Tho seventh cervical vertebrae was fractured, and tho sixth dislocated. Verdict, deceased came to his death by being pushed off the tohle by John Carson, thereby breaking his neek, but the jury further say, that is was not done in malice on the part of said Carson. Accident?A hard working Irishman, named Michael Sullivan, who has a wife ana family depending on his labor, met a serious accident yesterday afternoon, by falling into the hold of the ship Caspian, lying at pier No. 3 East river. He was standing on the combings of the hatchway guiding a hogshead of tobacco in its descent, when the tackling gave way, and he was precipitated into the empty hold, together with the hogshead, upon a number of pigs of lead. He appears to be injured internally, though the exUrnal marks were but trifling. He wss conveyed to the City Hospital, where he now lies in a dangerous situation. Accibrnt.?Mr. John Closer, of 41 Washington street, while descending the stairs of the premises orrWednes. day evening, caught one of his feet in the carpet, an I was precipitated to the bottom, breaking his collarbone, and otherwisa injuring him, but not seriously. Accidentally Drowned ?Eugene Hsvey, an infant, aged three years, son of James and Mary Havey, residing at JSd street, was accidentally drowned on Wednesday, by tailing off the dock, at the foot oi said strce'. lie was absent but ten minutes from his mother's care, when she found him a corpse in the water. Verdict, accidentally drowned. A Fouwdliwo ?An inquest was held on the body of a young foundling infant hoy, to whom thenamp of Dauiel O'Coanell had been given, (more, we presume,out of respect end compliment to statesman, than by the strict rules of paternity,) and who had been given out from the Almshouse to a wet nurse named Mary Cusick, about two weeks ago. The child was subject to convulsions, and died while with one, on Wednesday, aliout 3 o'clock. Verdict accordingly. The child was named by some of the assistants at the Almshouse tha evening that he was brought there, and the nurse stated to Deputy Coroner Milliki n yesterday, that a very finely dressed lady had called several times at her house to see the bahf, and said she u as the mother of it, and she only regretted that she had not "pinched his nose and stopped his breath before she left him on the door step where he was found, and thus saved the trouble of raising him." A pretty mother, indeed. AnoTiiaa Maw Daowwr.n.?On Sunday morning last, William Mulhall, a waiter at the City Hotel, left his hoarding place at No. 87 Orange street, with his mother, daughter, and step-son, to go to tha Battery and bathe. The unfortunate man swam towards pier No. I Kast river, accompanied by thestep-son, a lad'nbout fourteen years of age, and becoming exhausted, he cried lor help. A boat was lowered from a schooner near hy, but before he could be rescued tho currant carried him under. Yesterday morning about ten minutes after eleven, as two boatmen, named Clarke, were coming from Governor's Island in a boat, they passed ever the body, which it Is supposed was brought to the surface by the firing trom Colt's battery on tha island. They made it fast, and towed it ashore. Verdiet accordingly. Or?- TOM THUMB A SAILOR'.-The very ides seems the height of absurdity?but se it is.

' 1 Summkk Evkninq Amussmehtb ?The hot weather haa burst up old Drury, and she closed last night avowedly until the jubilee of the 4th July, but doubtlew, then again to close for the season. Never in the history of the Park has 'she had so worthless a season, and therefore the closing of her doers will scarcely he regretted ; but the extreme heat of the weal her is calamitous to all the other places of r> amusement, but those where ventilation is free and agreeable. Mr. Mann, whose excellent equestrian vuuipauy udH oeen lor tome weeks delighting good , i audiences at the Bowery Amphitheatre, with the capital generalship which has ever characterized f both him and his princely partner, Mr. Welsh, is . about to take " the tented field," and thus to afford every essential comfort with amusement. It is sug- ' gested that he will erect his large canvass tent in the upjier part of the city on the 4th July, and that he will afterwards remove to various other parts of the city in succession, whereby the families of our citizens will be permitted the enjoyment of the best exhibition of the sort in the country. Niblo's.?Another Parisian novelty to-night; the f 1 last new vaudeville, called the Fantastic Omelette, is to be played, supported by Mesdames Richer, Lagier and Ainelie, and those excellent art ists Messrs. Dissonville and Oternot. The very great attention to the business of ths scene, the dresses, the mnsic, and the spirit with which the French vaudevilles are performed at this establishment, never fail making them go off with effect and satisfaction. Those general favorites,^onsisur and Madame Lecourt, appear in the comic opera of PolichintUi. It was in this piece that they made their debut. Of the many agreeable light operas the French company play, few cause greater amusement and applausa than I Polichinelli. The music is quite original, and for i its execution, to say* the grand orchestra plays it, conducted by Monsieur Prevost, is sufficient. n_ ? rr m. _ i " CHATHAM 1UKATKK? 1 [118 IRVOrite piRCf 01 amusement will be re-opened in a few days.

(W- AT A MEETING OF MERCHANTS HELD on Wednesday, at the Merchants' Exchange, in pursuance to previous notice, Mr. George Oris wold was called to the cnair ; Messrs. Edward K. Collins, Henry Grinnall, Moses Taylor. Hicks W. Field, Mark Spencer. Jacob Harvey, and John H. Hicks, were appointed Vice Presidents ; J. D. Van Beuren and A. B. Wilson, Secretaries. The object of the meeting having been briefly stated, ,, Mr. E. K. Collins offered the following resolutions,which were unanimously adopted ;? Resolved, That while wo would avoid giving a political character te an expressien of eur dissatisfaction of a late act of the Common Council of this city, we cannot be insensible to the fact that a majority of that body were elected by the party claiming, through its official organs, to be governed by the most liberal principles. Of the justness of such claims by the party, and of the political integrity of those thus elected, the people can judge but by their public acts and measures as tend to reduce those principles into practice. Resolved, That the principles of democracy and the natural rights of individuals demand the least enactment of laws of a restrictive nature compatible with the well being of society?that the citizen shall enjoy the utmost freedom of individual action and latitude in the employment of his industry,so long as he does not interfere with the rights of others?that entertaining these views, we believe the Common Council in repealing the late ordinance relative to weighers, measurers, and guagers, bavo set at defiance, alike the principles by which they profess 4 to be governed, and the natural rights of every citizen, which they are bound to respect. Resolved, That the experience or the pait admonishes us that excessive political and executive patronage is inimical to the safety of Republican institutions?debasing to the morals and corrupting to the purity of society ; offering inducements to individuals to seek the advancement of their own sinister ends and selfish purposes,by the ? temporary supremacy of either party ; and we do therefore protest against, not only the continuance of offices to be bestowed upon |>olitical partisans as a reward for party f J services, which offices are uncalled for ami a vexation* ~ interference with the legitimate businuss transactions ol m the citizen ; but also against the enactment of any ordi- t, nance by tha Common Council which shall tend to be- * ? stow upon ens individual to the exclusion of another, the privilege of applying his talents or industry to any pat titular trade or employment by which he may obtain an honest livelihood. Resolved, That the creation by any legislative body, of offices designed to regulate between individuals our domestic commercial transactions, is in opposition to the spirit and purity ol our political institutions ; that the creation of such offices, and the regulation ol such transactions,should be left to custom and those of the community interested ; ami that an opposite policy, and those who advocate it, we will most zealously oppose, as represen- j tativesnot calculated to advance the interests and wishes ot the people. Resolved, Thst we cordially approve of the modification of the Inspection Law? by tho last Legislature, as an act strictly consonant with sound political principles, and materially conducive to the commercial prosperity of this city. Messrs. Sedgewick, McKeon and Cummerford addressed the meeting, alter which it was adjourned. New York, June 28, 1849. GEORGE ORISWOLD. President. EDWARK K.
