Let us have a " full disclosure," i gentlemen We have more to say about tnis buai- J neas, but wii] wait til] we get ail the facts. 1 J Italian Onm Co.'Oant.?Tha Italian troupt, J whose representation iu New Orleans ol 1 Purtfani, < Luemt litrgia, and other operas, were received w>ih the mos: fl^tteriiig evidences ol the public re- ' ga:d, are now travelling northward. As it is very J pr?>?ably that they may soon visit this city, we ieel l that we will petform an acceptable service ia atatlug tb- individual Claims ot the niemot-rs ot ihe ?H?nrin?- > ny to the favor 01 the numerous summers of the 1 opera in this city. From whai w can 1-arn, Signor Val'eluna, in-- principal baas, has a /oice of no incons.derable power, and much cultivation, end we are coutident will, if he have the opportunity, make a decidedly favorable impression He is an Italian ol?preposeessiaf personal appearance, and ta a very g.iod performer. Signor Caivet, the baritone, is a Spaniard by birth, bat understands the Italian thoroughly, and hia pronunciation is characterized by singular precision. He ! a t* a voice 01 great compass and volume, of re- 1 m-rkab.e sweet new, out h* is somewhat deficient jp execution, which defect, one by no means altogather beyond his abilities to remove, niara, in some degi?f, the effect ol his performances. Ptroizi, the principal tenor, unless Antognina recover his voice, will be found a very agreeable Btuger. ma voice. However, is somewhat nasal, i aiih?jgh it ia well managed, and hae much aweet- ' fssof expre^eion. We ba?c iiow enumerated the ' principal bingrrs, klihoagn Thatna, and one or two other* 0. the male chorus will be foand very effective. and are worthy of mentioa. Kster Cortini, the prima donna,has a fine and ax- ( preae4*e. eye, a prepoaeeshiug tace, but har figure ia ( wanting in the symmetry and grace which give such fascination to the form ofC.stellan. Har voice, al- ( although agrttablt,and of a pleasing quality ,yet lacks cotnpdaa. She haa, however, cultivated it to the { highest extent of its capabilities, and we are confi- ^ dant will prove highly attractive. Signora Maiocci, the ttgunda donna, has a glo- ^ rioua, jo/eus face?a voice, perhaps not of great ^ a rop'as.but one which ahe thoroughly understands, ^ ana whose powers ahe never transcends by overeffort In one of Donixetti's lateat operaa, Gemma T di Ksrfjr, ahe playa the principal part, and will be r found ia it more than ordinarily pleasing and effective As O.nni, and Lwrtce Borgia, she sings a drinking eoag. which in New Orleans was most en- ^ thusiaetically applauded, and as the musical taste of (l G >tham is, of coarse, inferior to that of no city in " tha world, the is sure, il she appear in thatcharacter * her?, of being g acted by the moat gratifying ap. 8 piause. c Of t!i? female chorus we can aay but little, unless they have received new accessions to their f strength wince the<r departure from New Orleans. ] The trou-p*, however, -ake it all together, will be lound effective to a degree seldom, perhaps never equalled in thia city. Should thev make their 1 dtltul \u I Pm ituni, m furor of enthu!?ia?m will be I created, we are assured by thoae who have hesid them, eticL ~s has rarely been manifested in tliia city The ;Wt of the second act will itself tell the 1 ??ry.

Tlie cast. whiah forth the decuion Ahxmd f ' L'>utfhtmnc was commenced by bailable rapist, and application having been made to Judge order was gruuted hv him to hold the defendant to bail in the snm of &750, and he nit thereupon arrested. Motion was then made to discharge the defendant on tiling common bail. The affidavit of the defendant Hill not H^nv th* sJonrlpr. ous words charged to have been spoken, nor show any fact as special ground of discharge other than what must arise in ordinary cases. The only point raisid by the defendant's counsel wu, whether the practice oi the Supreme Court to hold to bail in actions of slander was or not abolished 1 Several points were raised by the counsel for the plaintiff as to the regulaiity ol the motion, but they wers decided against nun, leaving the4'naked question oi the bailable or nonmailable character of the action of slander for the opinion ot the court ? Judge Kent gave his decision as follows:?"I am ot opinion that the defeidant ought to be discharged from cuatody on filing common bail, without costs to either party. This practice in the Supreme Court was established early, and has been conlirned in several cases.?2 Caines, 47: 2 John, 293; and 2<? Johnson, 337; nor do I perceive that the Revised Statutes in their provisions respecting Judges' or* ders, have altered this practice.?(I R. S., 348.)" This decision is so clear in its terms that we leave it without a further word ol comment. 1 J* nits' Fin IX I?

Tou will please insert in tha columns of yeur paper this limited report of one ot the most splendid lairs that ?ave ever been given in Rjhway. The object, as far as 1 can anderstand, is to contribute to theferection ol an Episcopal Church in Rtkway, and inderd it was meet aanarably got up.

Thera was one poor lellow ?ho?iugtjt au introduction to the tair enchantress, and was no soener introduced thaa she persurded him te buy a boquette, for wnichhe hail to pay 60 cents, and soon made his departure, no doubt wishing he had never seen that fltwerguL The other one, a Miss MM>h, is a very pretty blue eyed, lijbt complexion and brown haired girl, handsomely dressed in white, in which, she looked charmingly, and reminded us of the far its that we read of sometimes. We sheuld do your readers gieat injustice shoulJ we omit to notice the throe young ladies who attended the Post Office department? their names we were unable to learn, but their looks we shall not forget in a hurry.

We started about sundown, and traveled along the river road, upon the beautilul banks of the North Kiver. It was a most splendid moonlight evening?indeed never did a moon shine more brightly, and never did a small party enjoy a more romantic and delightful ride. The continued succession of hill and dale, rock and river, wood and weadow, all amid the glance* of moonlight wan truly enchanting. we " tarried" at Tarrytown over night, and in the morning took a view of the surtoundingacenery ?paid a vnit to Col. Beekmau's paternal country seat, and what ia the most interesting part of the excursion, we visited the very identical spot where the unfortunate and lamented Andre waacap ured. We visited the little valley in the midat of which runs the little brook where Andre etopped to water his horse. We saw the place where grew the tree under which those immortal names, Paulding, Van Wart and Williams were pla>mg at cards, when they heard the war-horae upon which Andre rode. And we traced the little bubbling brook down to the very spot where they took from Andre the hoot which contained the fatal papers, now in possesion of Col. Beekman. The morning waa truly delightful, and greatly did we enjoy the pleating reminiaences ot the occasion. We passed down through Sleepy Hollow, and also passed that truly magnificent marble country seat, built ?nd owned by Philip R Paulding, Esq., one of the descendants ot the Paulding who waa engaged in the capture ot Andre, and through whose politeness we were enabled to obtain conveyance to Tarrytown. In short, the whole ride down the line of the Croton Aqueduct, from Tarrytown to Yonkerb upon the banks of the North river, and opposite to the noble Pali6adea, is one ot the finest and most romantic in the country. On arriving at Yonkers we found the Governor and hia friends. I understand that he arrived at Yonkers about halt past eight A. M ?was received at the dock by the town committee of nrrangemen'f, the. Hon. Aaron Vark, chairman, Wm. W Scrughasn, Esq , secretary, Dr. H S. Gates, Wm. L. Morris, (brother of ivlayor Morris) Charles Dusenbury,Croton Aqueduct Commissioner, Edward F Shounard, Esq , Dr. A M. Gates, Justice Kockwell, Anson Baldwin, Esq , Ed. N Bibby, fcsq., Prince W. Paddock and Samuel W. Wel.s, Esq. At the reception, he was addressed on behalf o| the Committee bv Mr. Scrugliani, as follows "The pe?ple ol Yonkers, without distinction ol party, have sent out their committee to meet youi Excellency,and welcome you to their shores. That committee have assigned to me the honor able and pleasant duty ot addressing you; and in their name, in behalf of the people they represent, 1 greet and welcome you. You have left a large city to visit us. There you have been shown extensive public works, and muitnilicent specimens ot architectoral beauty. We can show you none ot these; but we can point you to beautiful groves aitd rich luxuriant fields, sights, it I mistake not, n*t ungrateful to your farmer eye; and we can lead yon to ground made holy by the blood ot struggling Irecmen; tpots, I doubt not, nut uninteresting to your patriot hmrt. Ah Governor ot the State i f New Vork, the brightest star in our constellation, you have been a great conservative ot t:ie peace and liberty, our fathers here, in many a skirmish, died lo obtain. We truot, and doubt not. that as you have been, so you will contiuue, a faithful guardiau of ttiat peace and liberty. Again, in the name of the committee, and of the people of Vonkers, 1 assure your Excellency ol our iiearttelt gratification at this tokeu ot irgpect. We hail your presence with sinccre pleasure and with unfeigned teeling, welcome you to our town and hoinea." Governor Borca's Reply. I feel grateful to my fallow-citizens ofYonkers, for this renewed expres-ion of recpect from the people ol Westchester. 1 have, indeed, during mv visit to this county every where met wuh >-ui h constant manifestations ot ropect, as to produce impressious which cannot eatil) be erast-d Ironi my recollection. The county ol Westchester is one ol the mutt interesting in the State ; on every road you travel you tlave pointed out to you some iute resting incident ol the Kevolution; almost evm promontory potuisyou to the scene of somecombat, (his couuiy is the birih |>lace ot a Joy, arid 11 Tonipkins, two of my must illustrious prececestors. whose virtues and patrio ism I shall he proud to imitate. Accepting tor yourstlf my heat wishes lor your (uiureprosperity. After the address, tne Governor was escorted by Col. Prem' Guard ot Honrr to the camp ground ,,i the (Second R giment, where he received an appro priatesalute ot 17 guux, and reviewed the troop* under Col. Peer*. He was thou escorted to Col Peers' quarter*, where he was introduced to the Colonel's staff, and officers ot the Regiment. Here the party took a gliss of wine, the Governor taking lemonade. Col. Peers gave "His Excellency the Governor." The Governor gave, " The Officers and Privates of the second Regiment of Artillery." The Committee then took the Governor to the Hotel of John Bash lord, where the citizens of the place were introduced to him. Here he continued until 12 o'clock, when the Committee escorted htm to the superb and magnificent country seat o! Thos. W. Ludlow, Esq , who married the sister ot our own Robert H. Morris. And 1 must say that Mrs. Ludlow is not only M iyor Morris' sister, but she is, for woman, fully equal, if not a little superior, to her broiher. 1 should add that the Governor was accompanied from New York by Colonel Hamilton, General Storms, and Dr. Hibbard. Those gentlemen, in coinpauy with the Rev. Dr. Van Pelf, Judge Ward, the Hon Andrew Kindlav, Judge Constant, Philip n. raulding, the Kcv. Mr. ftiorrs, Ward li. Howard, Esq.ol Peekskill, and some others, eat down to a 1110*1 excellent dinner, prepared in rich abundance and in great variety by Aire. Ludlow. Jt was worthy of the occasion, aad although there w?s plenty of lemonade, wine, and other liquors, yet out of respect to the clergy who were present, no public toobts were drank. Dr. Van Pelt related to his Excellency some very interesting anecdotes of General Lafayette, and the company all very much enjoyed themselves, and the hospitalities ot Mr. Ludlow. Shortly altrr dinner the party again took their carriages and returned to Mr. Bashford's, when a number of ladies and gentlemen were introduced to the Governor. In the mean tune I again visited the Camp Ground, and there heard from Col. Peers, Alderman Wm. Dodge, Major Lewis, and several other genUemen present, ooine very curious explanations of the reasons why Col. lieekmau did not finish the speech which it was said he began u|>on the ground during our absence to Mr. LudlowV? whither for some reason or other Col. Beekman did riot accompany us. Itse.-nn, according to ull I could learn, there were several mistakes marie, ann some misunderstanding in relation lo "them papers." I snail not undertake an explanation. By the way,I understand the Historical Society have u in contemplation to solicit in some public form the custody or iransler to their possession of the Andre papers Although ihey are an "heir-loom" ot great value in Col. Beekman's lannly, yet his patriotism and well known liberality would, doubtless, induce him to gratify the society. The Camp Ground by moonlight presents a very be<iuiiful and romantic appearance, arid attracts great numbers ot visitors. The Second Regiment are in capital spirits, and are enjo>mg the sp rt in tine style. They exjiect next i uenday a visit from Gen. Sandlord, the Common Council, and other distinguished guests, and they intend lo give a b?l in the evening, at wluck Buny ladies from ihe city will be present.

There la a .other institution of great OBtiquity?the Church ol G?d. Bath iu evsry age have thrown a might) moral pew er upon th? world and rather aa rival antagonistic than auxiliary ttowers. There haa been no lore lout between them. The theatre hat waited no eulogiaa on the church, and the church wasted no bleating ujiod the theatre, and for a long time it seemsd doubtful on which the victory mould turn. But at length an age of em i barbariam hat rolled away and christian revolution haa prevailed. The Drama hat commenced its retreat, and the church ita onward march ; and the time seems near,when under the suffrage of au enlightened public the f)r?ma ?ill pair away. But before thia verdict tball be ieflnitely pronounced, it may not be morn than equ table that I h>-question be fiirly difcuttad, "What are the claim* of the theatre to the confidence and patronage of a Christian republican nation I shall not on thisocoatioo indulge in local references or a vain-glorious exultation. For though it it true that 1 did predict a result, which, if it come o pats, it was no prophetic gilt of mine, but the timple understanding of the muvementsof Providence and the sigua of the times. Much leas weald I ind?lge in any peisonal implications in what 1 may be called to say about the tendency and retulta of the theatre. For it haa been, at the slave trade and the traffic in alcohol, a lawful investment both lor pleasure and gain,land tar be it lrom rne in ligid baste to i xecute t* jmsl J'arlo laws. If they will go their ways and mii no mure, we leave the sitiu of past ignorance to

the ju igmunt of tfod. Nor will our argument assume thtt all aiauiements are unlawful The mind and body taxed with toil, demand them. Nor shall we insist that theatrical amusements are etientially and wholly sinful in their nature, and exclurivelv mischievous. For few institution! are so exclusively mischievous an to exclude a mixture of incidental good. 1 do not object to it because inthelormoi tiction it illustrates the joys aad sorrows, the hopes and fears, the neblu wishes, and the strong passions ot human nature, nor because no theatre can be go lormud ami conducted as to include the good and separate the evil. But because the page ot history shows that all attempts to make it what it ought to be ha've failed. But while I bay these things, I shall not admit that the discussion ot the lubjact is needless or invidious. For though sound argument is sometime* vexatious, it is n? ver invidious; and no form of persuasion is more mean or dastardly than to load a man with invidious tpi'hets, lor ihe f> arless exercite of his own right of tree iuquiry and argument. On what ground then shall the theatre be sustained ? As the hamtmaid of lteli^ion? It will not he pretended mat the theatre lias been the auxiliary of liolimss. How ever correct e its morality,its claims 10 holiui .-s will not be insisted oil.

Iudeed nothing would be regarded by it* friends or enemies more ludicrous than claiming lor the theatre the character ot a pious institution, and nothing sooner ruin its stock than to b<come such. 9hall we select as it claims it* power to discipline the mind, to impart knowledge, or cultivate the sciences Theatrical amusements are not designed to discipline the mind to vigorous thought, but to rel.ix it Irom seven* stu dy; and as to general knnwlulge, it lies within llie limit* ol fictitious stoi y and the development of human passion* and vicissitudes; and when and where ha* it drilled th> mind to close thinking, to deep investigation, orpoweifin ' argumentation? What school hous. s, academies and college* has it built? What streams ot geneial knowledge ' diffused ? What science cultivated or txplainid? Its claims must stand on the grouiid ol usetul pleatur- ' able amusements.

The whole primitive church teitified assent thereto TheophiluKOi Anttoch, in the second ceutuiy, says, "It i? n?t lawlui."?p. Ib9 The Catholic Church repeatedly prohibited it. The Trotestant Church in Europe and America have given timilar testimony. Archbishop Til lotiton eall* the theatre the " Devil's Chapel," a nuracry ol licentioumei* and vice ; a recreation which ought not to be allowed among a civilized, much lew a Christian community. Bishop Collier, a Calvinist, *ay*, " I am persuaded nothing ha* done more to debauch the age, than the stage poet* and the play homes." Sir John Hawkins says, although it ia laid that playa teach morali ty m.d are the mirror of human life, itaim assertion* are mere declamation. On the contrary, the play home and the region* about it are the very hot beds ol vice. Rousseau *ay?, " it ia impossible that it shuuld be o herwite.

[fr?n> the Plaitsburgh Republican.J We publiah to-day (by request) the report ol the Preteitant and Catholic gentleuiea, who conjointly visited Corbti to investigate the (acts connected with the burning of a quantity ot Biblea at that place last November The high character and standing of the gentlemen ibore alluded to, ia a sufficient guaranty to a liberal an-1 anlightened public, that the investigation waa fairly and properly conducted, and that the facta set lorth ia the report may be relied upon as correct. It win due to the public that atransactioa seoutrageou* in it* character, snd ao ri tolling to the feelings of a moral and aeiigiaus community, should be irtqtuied into, and thu real otfer.dera exposed to the animauversiona of tbe friends ol religion and round raotala eveiy where. The Rev. J. Roouey, at th<> iustanca of the Catholic Biahap ol tbia Diocese, caused the gentlemen whose namta are append?d to the re|iort in question, to viait Corbu and institute a rigid inquiry into the tacu con nectcd with the burning of tke Bibles at that place. This, the tiwmd gentleman waa under no obligation to do, inasmuch as he had no pastoral charge or control whatever ovar the French Catholic congregation at Coibu. He thought thut the ou'rageous nature of the tiHiisaction called lor an investigation, and he very pro perly took upon himsalf thu rea)ionsibility ol requi sting competent gentlemen to inquire into tbe matter for the satisfaction ol the public, and that the gmilty, whoever they might be, ahould alone boar the odium attached to ao sacrilegious an act as the burning or Biblet. Fathwr Iloouey it Justly entitled to the thanks of tke community lor causing the investigation to take place; and the unexceptionable character of the geBtlemon, who, at bis request, took upon themselves the expense and trouble to investigate the matter, shows conclusively that he was determined,so far as he and his brethren of the same laith wire concerned, that nethinir connected with this transaction should be concealed from the searching eye of the public. As the friend ef justice, wo freely give place to thereErt in question. It place* the wholo attair in its tiue ;bt baiot e the public. It satisfactorily appears from the report, that an itine rant Jesuit 1'rUst (late Irom France) did the aacri!egious de> d, and he alone is res|ionsii>le lor It. We, as Proitstants, r* joic.o that our Catholic neighbor* and friends had neither lot nor portion in the matter. However niurh we may d ffer with them in religious tenets (and difter we most certainly do), we should he grieved to see n juMice done them by imputing to them outiageous nets, of which they are not guilty, and in which they never participated, i>y word, act,or dead. REPORT. The undersigned, in compliance with a request of the Rev. J. Rooney,of Piattsburgh, and in conformity with the wishes of Bishop Hughes, of N. York, as publUhed in the papais, met at the C'orbu ir. the town of Champlain, tor the purpose of ascertaining the facts in lelation to the burniog 01 the Bibles at that place in November last. After having examined a number of witnesses, we have to leport, that Bibles were burnt, and that the number will not vary much fiom lorty two?we tb^.k that to be the precise number. They were burnt by Mr. Telman, a Missionary tiem Canada, and recently Irom France, a Kriar oblat?that Mr. T. Iman was the sole instigator and mate- in the business ol hurning Binles, i nd in oppose i ion to the wishea and f. elii.g* of Mr. Dugas, the resident Irrsynian at the Corbu. It appears tnat the number hnriit was but a small proportion of the whole number distributed among the people. These Bibles were given o the Catholics by Prot<atunt agents of the Bible So i ietv. and income cast a werelelt with individuals, niter ?ri expression of repugnance to receive them, ami but a mall number of those who cure up their Biblt-stobu lurnt J, could re?<l at al). It appeared is testimony that the Bishop of Montreal was at Coibu fire d<iy& alter the above transactions, and xpreaaed in strong language his disapprobation of the whole uft.iir. Then foil', in view of the above fact* and circumitiuicea, we have arrived at the conclusion that whatever [>dium or blame theie i* in this triin?action. it belong! to Mr, Telman; and that it would be uncharitable aud unjust to throw it upon the w h<>le denomination.

Rocky Mountain Expedition?Lkttkk from \Ik. Audubon.?A letter from this distinguished Naturalist has recently been received by one of the editors ot the Ho.-ton Atlas, giving an interesting ncc:)unr of the progress of the Exploring Expedition with which he is connected, and of the country through wh ch he has pushed. The principal portion ot the leitcr is written from shout 130 miles below St Pierre. A postscript, Jetted " Fort Pierre, Missouri," ?b?ut 1500 miles above St. Louis, June 1, 184o, announces their &afe arrival. "As it happen* that we nte now fait on a aand bar, about I Ml miles below Fort Pierre, one of the many ?*tal> liahments ol the American Far Company, I have taken it into my head to bore you with another letter, aud you muit make the beat of it.
