Tin QrAKANTlNS L*W?~ HkaI.TH OFTWK ClTY.? Jn these daj-s when hetrts are loci and woo at Sara* 'ttgn, and the-huip!,lujiu#HSUv? the.puddi**8-*i every c. rner ot our streets?when every breeze at Long Betnch is redolent ot hewlth and every puff ol air in the eitv is leaded with nA'ximiH i-fRuvia? when every young cheek at the "Springs" is more be- ( witching than ever, and every jaundiced countenance here is avoided as the precincts of a la*a retto, it is surely very excusable jn us, an the faith- j lul guardian* of the public weal, to devote some ^ attention to the consideration of those quarantine I regulations and muniripal enactments, which are i to ended to preserve the public heclth. The utility and necessity of quarantine laws, have been subjects of controversy trom their first ^ enactment by the Venetians, in the year 14H1, up to the present day. On the one hand, the rner- ! chtnts ari'i those whose business was on the ocean, i j We in* pro(ierly ttpposed t# unwarrantable delays and ( ret-trictions m th>* prosecution ot their enter- 1 irises, contended that the enforcement of , these laws was, in the majority of cases, altogether unnecessary, and consequently unjust; whilst on the other hand, a due regard for the public health, operating alike upon physicians and the civil authorities, induced them to employ every precaution against the introduction trom foreign potts of maladies supposed to be infectious. The preat diversity of opinion c>n these points, was owing chiefly to the imperfection ot medical science It was only after medical science had felt the influence of the Baconian mode of conducting philosophical investigations, thnt clearer and more accural notices respecting the doctrine of contagion, j nnd ?he propriety of quarantine regulations began to i j tirnViill Th<? till rrni ini vi?nt'ti ni (itrntf r if- ! gislators now begin to yield before the light of knowledge and sound philosophy, Hnd we entertain very little deubt, that in a short time the present inconvenient and oppressive system of quarantine, will he altogether abolished. It would be difficult to imagine any system better calculated 'o interfere injuriously with the rights 'id interests of those engaged in commercial pursuits, and the feelings and convenience ?f passeiv" gers in our packet ships, than that now in operation at this- port. It is a series of abu?es from beginning to end. Vessels coming trom healthy ports, and without a single case ot sickness on board, are subjected to the most unwarrantable detention, in not n few cases, to th* irreparable injury of those interested is the cargo No better proof of the absurdity and iniquity of this detention, t an be offered, than that presented in the faci, that the cabin pastangersare permitted to go ashore and come to the city, the poor devil* in the steeruge and the crew only,being subjected to the rigors of this exceeding, ly wite and equitable system. The folly of subject- ' ng vessels to a rigid quarantine, because a few ' cast s ot measles, small-pox, or other similar dis- t eases, happen to be on board, is so obvious even to t non-professional persons, that we do not deem it J' proper to waste a line in its exposure. a Whilst we thus decidedly express our opinion that e the present quarantine laws are unnecessary and 11 unjust, and ought le be at once abolished, we J1 are not tg be understood as going as far as the t citj authorities in opposition to all regulations for i the'/-reservation of the public health. We are really 1 not quite prepared to go the length of saying that ' streets reeking with putrifying garbage,and swarm- 1 mg with filthy hogs, are highly conducive to the pro- < motion and preservation ot the healthy condition of J our cities. We still retain some of the old fashion- , ed prejudices in favor of cleanliness, and despite of | our lengthened experience of the effects of the poli- 1 cy pursued by the municipal authorities of this city, ' we must confess that we are as milch disoosed as ever to advocate the necessity and propriety ol 1 keepiug the streets clean. There is not a city in the Union, which possesses tsuch admirable means of cleanliness as New York. We trust there is not another city in the Union so filthy. But eome of the cmefest means which we possess of cleansing our streets, are at present amongst the most efficient agent* for polluting the atmosphere, and creating disease. Look at the manner in which she Croton water is used !? j Iii-t?ad of having the gutters first properly swept I the wa er is poured into them, and mixing with ' Ihe garbage and refuse of ten thousand kitch- < ens, conver's them speedily into a putrid mass of t reeking filth, Kenerating miasmata which carry dig- 1 eas^ i'.u<! death to many a dwelling If the streets . were fir^t properly swept, then the employment of ( the ? ater in washing them, would be of incalcula- ' We service. Every one who has inspected the bills of mortality, has observed that since the introduc- | lion of the Croton water, the number of deaths has considerably increased Has this increase arisen from the use of the water for drinking and culinary pur(>osest Most assuredly not; theugh some silly and unreflectiug persons have so believed Hut we have no hesitation in expressing our conviction that ] a v st amount of sickness has been occasioned by , ifie creation of a noxious effluvia, in c?nsequence I of the deluging the filthy streets with the wafer. Again, and again, and again we have called on t!iemunicipa 'horitiee for some decisive action i respecting the i of the streets and the adop- i 'ion of other measures necessary for the preserva* Hon of the health ot the city. We must continue ] to repeat the call until something be done. Wien < Dr Grttcom's report appeared, we were in hopes that come useful reforms would be made, aud some judiciuM and enlightened sanitary regulations adopted and enlorced But he has been rem?ved from an office he was so well fitted to occupy, aud all his k hemes have been knocked on the head ? What a farce it is, to talk about enforcing quarantine lawn atStaten l?land, and washing passengers' clothes, whilst such a determined disposition appears to exist on the part of ih*- authorities to keep the city iu the best possible condition for becoming it rec ptacle of the plague or the yellow fever' Progress of Fokriotusm ?We perceive that a great convention of the disciples of Cliarles Fourier on this continent, is to be held at Pittsburgh in the course ?t a few months. The zealous and persevering manner in whjch Horace Greeley has advoi .ited the cause, and his disinterested generosity in devoting the press under his control to its support, .ave of courts dictated the wisdom aud propriety of ''ding him as the president of the convention. We shall wnd our unequalled corps of reporters to : '?** convention, and transmit to future generations a taPhtul record of all the " Hayings and doings."

More op trk Pi i yitk Controversy TWl lii"turbancf" in the Episcopal church, an the Fu*yite controversy is somewhat quaintly styled by he pious editor of the " Evangelist," moves on ipace. It already agitates the whole of this reliliuus community, and throughout all their borders ire heard the din and bustle of the approaching conflict. Several of the highest dignitaries are preparing to follow Bishop Donne's example, and stamp f'useyism with th?* ol orthodoxy, and others lire juet about to thunder lorth their anathemaa against it. The young priests are panting for an opportunity of signalizing themselves in the atea of >olemical gladiatorship, and nil are as biuy as possible 111 looking over thr fathers, and furbishing heir theological armour, so as to make a decent appearance iu the field. Meantime the publishers and newsboys are not die, but with a commendable zeal in the discharge if their duties, nre inundating the whole conimulitv with tracts, sermons, and Puseyite pamphlets, * ithout number. The great exciting topic of lhe lay is Puseyism; and not a few whose acquaintince wit'j theological and biblical literature, was ormerly limited lo that portion of it, which enabled them to curse their enemies with ufticient emphasis, are now almost as per- , fectly master of the whole range of controverted topics, as Mr. Carey or Bishop OnJerdonk himself. All this must be highly advantageous to truth. Free discussion is the great agent which dispels the mists of prejudice and error. It enlarges the boundaries of knowledge, and successfully detects and exposes the mazy subtleties amongst which error seeks to entrench herself. < ne of the most interesting pamphlets on this subject, has just been issued by Kedfield, Clinton Hall. It is entitled, "A letter to the Right Rev. Father in God, Richard, Lord Hishop of Oxford, on the Tendency of Romanism imputed to Doctrines held of old, as now, in the English Church : My Rev. E. B Pusey, D. U " In this letter Dr. Pusey defends at great length, and with characteristic ingenuity, his views on the sufficiency ot the Holy Scriptures for salvation, and of the authority of the Church, the justification of man, sin after baptism, the sacraments, baptism, the Lord's supper, ministering in the congregation, prayers for those departed in the laith and tear of God, invocation of Saints, and celibacy. As a specimen of the manner in which Dr. Pusey handles his subjects, let us take what he says about celibacy. It is rather an exciting theme?so, here it is lor you monks and maidens :? Cei.ibacy ? There yet remains one suecificcharge which is to prove an inclination towards the Romanist system, the praise of celibacy It is urged as an objection thai we do riot put forward "the celibacy ot the clergy," among " the chief grounds of difference between ourselves and the Church of Rome," and that" Monasiici;-m and celibacy are counselled and recommended in some passages." At the same time it is admitted that the se passages cannot be altogether adduced as sptaking our sentiments, inasmuch as "several of" us " are married clergymen " And, first, 1 may state to your lordship, that nowhere lu the Tracts have there been put forth any recommendations whether ofcelibacy in general, or ihat of the Clergy in particular. It has not been iHculcated, nor even named in the Tracts; and what has been elsewhere said by any who have written in the Tracts, lias been dropped incidentilly; there has been nothing of systematic promoion of this state. Then, also, when mentioned, it las been with reference 10 specific cases, to provide I or especial needs, such as where St. Paul says, "on iccount of the present distress;" or as a way more xcellent in itself, as one of the triumphs ot faith, lot as being generally exi**dient or desirable, even imong the clergy * And herein, at once adiBtinc ion m made between the teaching of these writers indthatof the Church c>t Rome, which absolutely equireB it of her priests; and it appears also how lar hey are from advocating views in a proselytizing or tarty spirit. With regard to the subject itrelf, I may have perlaps the less scruple to speak, as belonging to that 2lass,who, it is admitted, from thelcircumstances of Ueir own hie, cannot be disposed either to under- ' atr the blessings of marriage, or unduly to exalt the :elibate. I own tnen, my lord. I cannot read such passages, as, "There be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake ; he that is able to receive it, let him receive it." "Verily, I say unto you that there is no man who has left father, or mother, or wife, or children, lor My Name's Bake, but he shall receive manifold more in this present life, and in the world to come life everlasting." "He that siandeth steadfast in his heart, having no necessity, but hath power over his own will, and hath so decreed in his heart, that he will keen his virgin, doeth well; so then he that giveth ner in marriage doeth well; but he that giveth her not in marriage doeth better " I cannot r#ad these and others without acknowledging, that, though marriage is not permitted only, but "honorable," yea, our Lord honored the marriage rite by His presence and by His beginning of miracles, and has consecrated it into a mystery and an image of the Church's union with Him, still "a more excelent way" is pointed out to "those, to whom it is jiven." Marriage has not only safety, but honor. Changed as its character is hv the fall, in that it now ;ives birth to a tainted offspring, yet that men might lot despise it, and thence make a snare to themselves. Clod has restored it to a portion of the digni:y which it had from His institution in Paradise, fignified it in the Patriarchs, set forth an example of it in "Abraham His friend," and in the pure blessings nf Isaac, made its mutual love a simillude ni mat wtiich He bears to His Church, and of her reverence to Him, her Head and aviour; hallowed it yet Biore, in that His Son wag horn ol the seed of David, according to the fle^h, though not alter the flesh, and His Ever Virgin Mother was betrothed, when He "abhorred riot the Virgin's womb," and He appointed tha1 mothers should be "saved by the i hildbearing He takes us by the han ; Hows our union by the blessing ( His Chu co that what man might have leared to approach, is, when "enterprised reverently, discreetly, advisedly, soberly, and in the tear of God," a continual image and representation of things holy ind Divine. But it is the very character of the Faith, that, while it enobles the use of God's permitted blessing, t points out to those who can receive it, a higher ,vay, by foregoing them. Thus, it declares "every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, f it be received with thanksgiving," and it conse- I urates it to our use "by the word of God and by Prayer," vet it shows "a more excellent way" by Fasting, which "He who seeth in secret, shall reward openly it teaches that "our lands are in our power," yet it promises "manifold more to those who iorsake houses and lands tor His Name's sake and the Gospel's:" it teaches to "he down in peace and sleep in Hun, who makelh us to dwell in safety," yet those who are able, it invites to be like their Lord, and "wHtch unto prayer," to "prevent the nights watches," or even to "spend the night in prayer to God:" it teaches t<> **we this world without abusing it," yet is St Paul's example higher, who lived "rrusified with his Saviour to the worm md the world to him:" n sheds a srace and beau tjr around life's innocent eii; >yiu< ni*, and teaches us a Christian mirthfulness, yet it points, as the higher and nobler, to "take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ's i?ake, in St. Paul's eight-fold "l<erils;" "in weariness and painfulness, in hunger and thirst, in cold and nakedness;" it invests with .. ......

O Tr lill'j illitt" wni> -ire III authority," yet bidn those "who would be chief among" us, "to he aa the servants of all;" it aanctifie? marriage, but it places above it those wfio forego wives lor His sake. But what hasthis, my lord,in common with Rome and Romanism ? The preference of celibacy, as the higher elate, is Scriptural,and as being such, is Primitive The corruption of Home wasnot its preference but its tvranical, ensnaring and avaricious enforcement. But why should men fhus in their haste leap over to the contrary side, and exercise a tyrnany over men's consiliences lu the opposite way 1 Why thus decry and revile as Popish what is Primitive1!? Why should not celibacy b<* used by those to whom it l- given, to bind men's affections the more firmly to their I ord, instead ol ts> Home1? Scripture says "He that is uumarried careth for the tilings that belong unto the Lord, how he may please the Lord ; but he that is married careth for the things of the world,how he may please his wife." Why, then, cut oft the aspirings of thwre more ardent minda, who hope thus to wait upon their Lord without distraction t1 Why not be thankful for our o.^n 'The passage* quoted are Brit.

The drum was unfortunately knocked on the head. The circumstance created quite a ferment among the Orange party, and was the source of much more noise than the unlucky drum had ever been privileged to make. Mr O'Connell took up the matter in one of Ins late speeches, and thus pleasantly settled the business:? *' There was one thing he wished to call upon the Association to do, and it was his principal business there that day. (Hear, hear) The attack at Carland was commenced by people living there on the Orangemen, and not by the Orangemen?that was beyond a doubt. The Orange parly were playing a sweet Scotch air, "My love is but a lassie yet," and offending no |>erson, and they were attacked by, he would say, those ruffians in the quarry, but it was quite clear they were not repealers.? (Hear.) If they were, he would move that they should be instantly expelled, and their names struck out. (Hear ) If they were repealers, they would know their maxim, * that he who commits a crime fives strength to the enemy.' The drum of the Vangemen had been broken, and one of them had been cut in the head, and he was for the Associa tion buying him a better drum. (Hear, hear.)

Of this numerous I medical start", enly ten besides Oppenheim survived the fatigues and disasters of the campaign. Dr. Oppenheim afterwards entered into the service of the Grand Vizier, and established hospitals on the European plan at Adrianople. He is now settled at Hamburgh, and is literally covered with honors, well earned by long and zealous devotion to the interests of science. He has two brothfre in this city engaged in the fur trade, and who are highly respected. Thk Hon. T. F.

We make the following extracts from the Can ton Press. By the Ardaseer, arrived on the 26th March, the December overland mail has been received, and we have been put in potion of a number ot Bombay and Strain p pers, that, however, of course, convey no later intelligence than that received by the Vixeu steamer. From the Singapore papers we see that tigers and gangs of Chinese commit great depredations against the lives and property of the inhabitants, au j a meeting ot the latter was convened, at which an address lo the Resident was agreed on, asking lor the establishment of a more efficient police, the robbers hitherto having generally escaped undetected; and therefore unpunished. A comet has been visible, we learn from Manilla and Singapore since the beginning of last month, but during almost all which time the weather here has been so unsettled, and the sky so continually MvernxHt. that it wan first heh#>l>l Iwre mi tli#- niffht of the 28th. The comet itself is barely visible to the naked eye, but its tail is ot great extent, say about 40 degrees, and quite straight. At present it sets at about half past ten, in the southwest, and when first set n disappeared soon after nightfall It is probuble, therefore, that it will remain visible a long while. We believe this to be a comet hitherto unknown. As may be supposed, the Chinese are in great consternation about it, believing that it forbodes evil. Among the many honera and promotions bestowed upon the officers of the military and naval forces employed in the late Chinese war, indicative of the approval of the governmental home ot the services rendered, we are sorry to find that the Chinese interpreters, who have had such very arduous duties to perform, and who on occasion have even been as much exposed to the enemy's fire as any body else, should as yet not have been remembered by Her MuiPUtv'ri (rnvprnmpnl Tliuii liou.i Hnvino thrrnt nr four years been constantly employed in conducting the many negotiations which have at length so happily terminated, and indeed upon them the heads of the expedition were at all times totally dependent tor carrying on their intercourse with the people of the country; thus frequently they were called upon to perform duties which were not properly within their sphere, and owing 10 their number being so very small, it may be supposed that their labors were not light. To them the leaders of the expedition have, we believe, been indebted to a great deal of valuable information as to the intended movements of the enemy, and ihe commissariat would frequently not have obtained the necessary supplies, without their aid. Some of these gentlemen, besides, have, for a considerable while, discharged the duties of magistrates, at the places occupied bv the English, in fact their services have been invaluable, and the public, and particularly the foreign community in China, would have hailed with pleasure any marks of approbation bestowed by the Queen's government on Meters. Morrison, Gutzlaff and Thoin, as due to them for the eminent services they have rendered We publish below a Circular issued by H. E. Sir Henry Fottinger yesterday, informing the creditors of the Hingtae and other hongs, that the $500,000 now in the hands of the Cohong, will be distributed among them under the superintendence of an officer on the part of the British government. We believe the creditors, for sometime aware of the accumulation of the Consoo fund, sometime since addressed the secretary of H. M.

The prima donna makes her last salute to-night as the Suttler Marie. M'selle Calv? will be long remembered in New York from her inimitable manner of singing Donizetti's music. As this is positively the last night the opera is to be played, we anticipate another crowded theatre. Each evening as the opera finishes the Prima Donna is called for loudly to receive a sort of " mm total" of applause from the delighted audiences thbt are attracted by her exquisite performance and singing in the new opera. Chatham Thicatrb.?A new local drama is to be produced at this theatre to-nigjit, entitled The New York Apprentice, or the Warning Dream, which is highly spoken of by those who have had access to the MS We are plad to see a liberal ppirit evinced in regard to our native dramatists and the production of national and local pieces. There is no lack of talent in this country, or of varied incident, whereby to create and found a dramatic literature of onr own, which shall hereafter form, with that of Kurope, a standard of composition ; all that is necessary for the accomplishment of this desirable object is proper encouragement. Let the Chatham he sustained in its laudable efforts to progress such happy result. Latkr from Trinidad.?The l?rig Woodstock, Ca^t.

We extract the following passages, from which it seems that the English huve been putting their fingers in the pie.? , The letter quoted from is dated Feb. 10:? i The Government has gone on rt gularly till within the ' last ten daya, since which we have had nothing but ru- > , moraef war : and I have an idea we ahall have u serious i | disturbance here, il the tranquillity of Euro|>e in not di< ttirbed by it j for you mint know that about twelve days ago w? had an arrival here oi H. B. M. ship Talbot, Cap- . tain Sir Thomas ThomMon, direct from England, and of I the Bousaole, a French frigate. | ' Sir Thomasbrourht letters from the ?np]ish Oovern ment to Queen fomare ; and <u (he wa<, on the arrival of , the frigate, on Morea, he ?ent a boat for her to come over, ' as ihe never had buen at Tahiti since the French had got I possession, and hoisted their protectorate (lag. But on the receipt of Sir Thomas'* letter, she came across in ] statu, with the old Tahiti flag flying in her barge. She pulled directly on board the frigate, without landing, and ] they manned the yards and ran the old flag of Tahiti to , the fore, and saluted it with twenty-one guns, us they also ] did on her drpurture. , This annoyed the French greatly, so much that thev i , issued a protest against the proceedings of the command- ! i crol H. B. M. ship l'albotin hoisting and saluting the old , Tahiti flag, thereby disturbing the peace and tranquilli- , ty of the place, and acting directly hostile to France , Sir Thomas tnen requested the Queen to call a meeting ol all the inhabitants on the island to know whether it was their wish that the French should hold possession and govern the island The meeting took place vester. day in the Queen's enclosure, and it was attended by about 10,000. When called upon t? speak, they all agreed to a man in not wishing the French to remain on the island, and they all wished the Queen to allow them to go and pull down the protectorate flag ; but she would n?t allow it. Last night, however, the flag was hauled down, and the signal halyards were cut away. The captain of the Boussole threatened to fire upon the place if the flag does not go up again ; and the captain of the English frigate hag threat ened to tire on the Frenchman the moment a shot is fired upon the town. As the tenor of the English letter to Pomare was that England would protect her against any foreign power that should encroach unon her dominions, and both frigates at present lie all ready for battle, and as the Queen and most of the natives have fled to u distant part ot the island, there is no knowing how this affair will end, though I trust the Frenchman and the Englishman will fight it out, as they arc equally matched. I care not < which wins. Tahita, March 34th, 1843. In my former letter to you, I informed you ef the manner in which we were situated here with the French and English ; and 1 have now to inform you that the busineas wears a more serious aspect than ever; lor, on the 13th of last month, Commodore Nicholas arrived here in H. B. M.'s ship Vindictive, of A3 gum, bringing presents to this Queen from Queen Vietoria ; and having heard of the manner in which the French had gained possession of the island, immediately made known, in a public meeting of the natives his intention of lying here and protecting them against the encroachments of the French, at all hazards. The next day, beiDg the third day of his arrival here, he nnhont oailannH urarni'il hiti fihin uliri>n<t (ho r*?ai? dence, where (heis still lying. We have also two French sloops ol war here, that have been lying here for the last two months, doing nothing hut watch the proceedings of the English (Jommodore with the utmast jealousy ; and they intend to remain here till the arrival of the French Admiral, who is expected daily. We then shall have rumors ol war, if not actual wnr itsell, as neither party is disposed to give way to the other, and both parties have compromised their national honor so far thut they cannot draw back without conceding to each other, which neither at present appears disposed to do. My opinion is, that the small island oi Tahiti will be the cause of involving France and England in a conflict ; lor it is the island which they both want?not the improvement of the condition of the natives, as they pretend. Should the French Admiral, on his arrival here, take umbrage ut the manner in which the English have conducted in his absence, no doubt we shall have the commencement ol the row here, a* the John Bull commander is a hot-head) d and fiery old chap, and is in one ol the most efficient ships in the English navy. City Intelligence. Fare in the Citt Prison.?The practice of supplying accused persons confined in the city prison before trial or conviction, with similar or less wholesome food than is givea to the inmates oi the penitentiary, has to the disgrace of our city, long been continued by the Alma House Commissioners. Persons there confined deserve and Bhould receive wholesome fare, of good quality,and a distinction should be shown, if possible,in the distribution of that fare, between the persons convicted of oftences, and those held on a mere suspicion of crime. At this season of the year they should be supplied with vegetables, for soup, if nothing more, and it will scarcely be believad, when we assert, that not even a potato is now furnished the poor devils, who are unlucky enough to be canght in the snares of the law, and fall into thu city prison for safe keeping. This error exists alone with the Alms House Commissioners, and we siucerely believe from our knowledge of their sense of right and justice, that they will order a weekly, if not daily supply of those vegetables^hat are so abundant at this season of the year. Salt junk and rye coffee are tough enough for rid convicts, but men arrested on suspicion o< offence, should be treated with more lenity. Numerous instances have come to our know ledge of men who have been incarcerated in the city prison for months, compelled from poverty to partake of prison fare, and when placed at the bar for trial, were declared entirely innocent of the crime alleged. The convicts ol Sing Sing always have a full supply of potatoes witk their meat, and can it be just that those merely detained on suspicion should be served with worse than state prison lare? Not only is the burden severe in these cases, but Low much more so is it when applied to innocent and unoffending witnesses confined to aid the ends of justice, whose poverty alone compels such confiuemtnt.and who, therefore, must swallow salt junk soup made without a single article of a vegetable nature, while the very criminal at whose suit they may be incarcerated, can dine at the Astor, or sup 011 Windust's woodcock. Gentlemen Commissioners, we feel confident you will listen to the evils here pointed out, and, notwithstanding you have adopted a system ol economy in the administration of your duties highly creditable to yourselves, yet your constituents will never complain at a moderate eipenditurc in supplying the inmatas of the City Prison with Irish potatoes to freshen their salt junk. So, Mr. Steward Purdy, get ready for the new order. Attempted Suicide.?Yesterday evening, a woman named Mary McBride, No. 37 Orange street, while suffering tinder the effects of intemperance, attempted to destroy herself by drinking some verdigris which she had TYiivpfi iiii in n run H#?r hiuhanrl tavc tKu art ?nsl bad the presence ot mind to dash the fatal cup from her lips ere too much of its contents had been drained. She was conveyed to the City Prison, and piaced in charge of the physician, who has hopes of her recovery. Stkaliro a Gold Watch.?On Saturday last, a co. lored girl named Sarah Ann Owens, Was committed at the Upper Police Ottice, on a charge of grand larceny in stealing from one of the bath rooms of the Merchants' Exchange Hotel, a gold watch valued at $60, the property ofMr.Charles Miller, No. HO Cedar street, which he left by mistake hanging vp after he had finished his bath. The girl was searched, and notwithstanding her proles sionsto the contrary, the watch was found concealed in her clothes on her person. Moan or the Tknth Avewusi Gana.?Yesterday .\jr. Joseph H | Howland, who resides on the Bloomingdale road, near 86th street, recognized among the stolen property found in the possession of the Tenth Avenue Gang, the arrest of several of whom we published last week, a couple of boat sails, several pairs ot aars, masts, chains, Sic., to the value of $38, which had been taken irom his premises on the night ef the Uth July last, I he matter was made tangible by entering a charge of burglary against John L. Hoades, one of the gang, wha was sent back after his arrest, to fulfil the term ot his sentence in the Orange county gaol, irom whence he escaped on the night of the 13th June last. Arbeit or Juvrnilk Buagi.ars ? Several young lads were arrested and committed yesterday, at the Upper Police ottice, on a charge of burglary,in having on the night of the 21st ult., entered the premises of Mr. Michael Sandford, No. 06 Morton street, by removing a pane of 5lass in the basement window, and unlocking the entry oor. The property lost consisted of a metal box, con. taining 18 half eaglea, two gold rings, one set with paste stones, a box of percussion caps, and some uncurrent paper money. Value of the whole $10#. During the day succeeding the burglary a boy named Jefferson Hill, was seen with the metal box, with some half eagles in it, and such uai hid comluct, bi.iI the story ol hi* having received them a* a present Irom hi* grandlather, in the country, to improbable, that ho wi* detained, ami lent to the Upper Police office. Two other lads who were in company with him, made theire*cape at the time. The gold ring and bo* of percuuion cap*, were left the same day by a boy, who turn* out to-be Ni l?on U. Hill, at the store of William Blaskitt, No. 304 Bowery, Irom whence they were recovered an?l recognized. The other boys, Ezra Wooley and David Lee, none of whom are over sixteen year* of age, were also arrcited and fully committed for trial. SHorurTinn.?In the police rccord* during the JJast couple ol month* we find daily a case or two of this par ticular clam of crime, but whether we are to aicrihe iti increase to the poverty which compel* many of our poorer citizen* to have recourse to thi* unlawful mean* to ward oft atarvation; or to the increased temptation, in having the ware* more incautiously exposed, we are at a loss to say.
