NEW YORK HERALD. ' New York, Tuesday, February ?7, 1SY4. l (XJ~ H. W. Morrif it our Agent for the salt* of the c Herald at Foughkeepsie. c " ti The Whig Ward Meetings. Last evening the whigs held public meetings in ( every ward of the city, for the purpose of appoint- c ing delegates and making arrangements preparatory to the spring election. j: These meetings were well attended, and inaitifested u great revival of spirit, enthusiasm, and ^ confidence?not so much, perhaps, in reference to ^he election of Mayor and Aldermen us in reference to tha Fall election for President. In several . of the wards, the assemblages were large, with ^ plenty of speeches and some fine eloquence. P'rom the spirit, numbers and organization of the J" whigs, it is very evident that they do not mean to be merged into the new na'ive party, or allow that class ot politicians to dismember them. They have elected delegates both to nominate a Mayor and ^ Aldermen, ana if they proceed and present full tickets, we do not see how the natives have much ( chance ot success, or what can prevent the locofocos trom carrying the city, out and out, by an easy j! and overwhelming victory. ' II the natives and the whigs both adhere to their u separate organization?both nominate Mayor and Aldermen, both will be sadly defeated, and the J " old hunkers" of the locotocos will retain the spoils another year. We will, in such acontingen- H cy, have no reform?no economy?no police?no clean streets?no good government. In such a dilemma, either the whigs must give t| way to the natives, or the natives to the whigs ; . otherwise both are certain of defeat. What's to be done 1 Bnsi.NEsss at the South.?We have lately no- e ticed in severul of the southern papers advertise- f, ment.s of Philadelphia merchants. Thi6 is a some- tj what new and not a bad method of cominunica- j tion with merchants at the south and west; but we 8 have a better one. a These southern papers are very'good channels t lor advertisements so far as those papers go ; but it j, should be borne in mind that their circulation is j, necessarily very limited, being almost wholly of a s strictly local character. Now it is a well known n fact to all whoThave dealings with the south, that ^ the circulation of the New York Herald throughout i, -l * * _ .1 IT-' - 11 I u.. . mttl section Ul me union is Ulltipirtlicu uy any [, other three papers combined that are printed in v this country. On board of every steam-boat, at ^ every hotel, every reading room, and in numerous ^ mercantile houses, the tlcrald is seen and read j, daily and regularly- Its circulation is not confined ^ to any single isolated town or county, but it goes ^ every where. This being the case, is there a bet- t, ter channel of communication to be found 1 ^ We are glad to see proofs of an increasing business at the south. We daily have evidences of this returning prosperity in the shape of subscriptions from all quarters, and the letters bringing thein tell r us that the trade springs from a firm and healthy Q basis. Newspaper Credits.?The newspapers through- ti out the south and west, with some few sulky and S mean exceptions, do ample justice to the manner w in which we have furnished them with the news d by the recent important arrivnls at Boston and this w port. Here are samples :? e< The New York Herald says, that the recent report* of fc foreign arrival* and advance* in Cotton were batajid*. M witCout qualification. We are truly glad to hear this, although a thing *o extraorilin <ry and unusual ?*> lc certainly calculat?d to awaken some suspicions. It was r a fact which we all had an interest to make appear with its fall weight, not with any unnecessary doubts. We, loi one, are always ready to do the Herald full justice, for its r enterprise, courteous favors and uniform accuracy, both in foreign and domestic news. No other paper "in the p country takes equal pains to furnish its exchanges with slips and early news?as a proof of which we stale, that, had the mails been regular, we would have received, oue a! day last week, several columns of important news in slips from that paper alone, in advance of the regular editions. We feel, as do others at distant points, tha ad van- g! Uge of thi* spirit of professional kinuneas, ana beg to ac- c, knowledge it.?Richmond Star. Tar. Nr.w Yon* ?We cannot refrain from ac- ,1( knowledging our obligations to this journal for furnish- pi jng us, in advance of all others, with the news by each ar- e] rival from Europe That published by us yesterday, was brought on from Boston for the Herald by special express, tl and by it forwarded to every portion of the south, twenty- p. four hours in advance of the government mail, which from some inexcusable neglect failed to connect at New- ;1 York in time for the 9 o'clock cars to Philadelphia.- Haiti- ft more Clipper. | The hkroatr.d False News rnom Ei'itope.?We ex- _ tracted a few weeks since Irom the New V'ork R * * * a statement that certain intelligence from Europe, con- tr tained in " a morning paper," was false. We did not even know to what paper the U ? * alluded It seems now 1 that the news alluded to was taken from the "Herald." tf and the editor of that paper uses very abusive language , towards us for having made the extract. We cannot descend to the level of the Herald, and shall not retort its se abuse. It is perfectly welcome to say what its Editor w may think proper of us For the satisfaction of our own raaders, however, we will barely repeat that not being in m the habit of reading that paper, [no way of getting it ei- |,, ther] we did not know that the alleged false ne s-s was ' contained in its cotttmns. It will be recollected that we said at the time, that the editor of the paper ''must have 9f baen deceived himself," for we could see no object in his perpetrating a hoax so liable to detection. The news, we learn, turned out to be true. Ws meant not to injure the d Herald, or any other paper. We had no interest in so do .1 ing. We merely meant to put our own merchants on their guard. ? Richmond Whit;. g The grumbling and affectation of the "Richmond li Whig" is quite impudent and quite amusing. It is pi amusing to see a journal, the lowest of the low in C party dirt?an editor who has some intellect, know- h ledee. talent, and is also a white man to hoof, vet ,V a greater slave to dirty faction than any negro in te Richmond is to Ins master?and who, under this tl galling slavery, degrades and disgraces the press al- d most beyond redemption?it is amusing to see such ti a journalist talk of his level?of his elevation?ol 1 his dignity. Satan may as well talk ot his prayers ti and piety in the garden of Elden. o Travel to Europe.?Four packets leave this country next Friday for England and France Three r from this city and one, the Hibernia, from Boston p We understand that the packets, the Oxford for li Liverpool, the Oneida for Havre, and the Victoria f for London, have already several passengers en tl gaged. We have not heard any thing respecting C the Hibernia; although Hhe is a capital steamer, we believe that the Oxford will carry as many pas- p sengers on this trip. She will take the short route discovered by Captain llathhone, her popular commander, in M irch 1840, and reach Liverpool fully as soon as the Hibernia does. We shall see. n Both the Oneida and Victoria are fast sailers, and " the race of the four ships, steatn'and "canvass " backs," will be an interesting one. cl . ta Cttv arpairs.?The proceedings of the Cornmon Council last evening, as fully reported in ano- u tlier column, will be found very interesting. The < annual appropriation bill was introduced with the " ..... ?r ? r?. .u? ?u? ? ??. I relative to a National Dry Dock in this city?with- " drawal of prosecution of city weighers for violation ti of city ordinances, and a very interesting brush * between Aldermen Nash, Briggs, and Scoles, rela* ? tiva to charges made against the Superiniendent ol " Repairs, by the first named Alderman. And last, but not least, the offering of the lease of the Fulton and South street ferries tor five years to the highest bidder. Administration op Justice.?An effort is, we understand, to be made to delay judgment in the case of John Jones, the button maker, convicted of a most beastly offence. We trust that the public eye will be kept on this case trom day to day, up to the final moment of judgment. Every principle of justice and morality require that when such n, offenders are brought within the grasp ol the law , they should be righteously dealt with and receive A their deserved punishment. a o Important Memorial.?We have a memorial to h the Legislature in our office, Hnd it is alao in allihe Insurance offices, which every ship owner, master, r, and underwriter should read. It is to prevent any i; unjust and unequal laws being passed by the legislature which will inflict an injury on this important a class of our citizens Those who please can sign p the one in this office b me AppNMklng WMtlM In CoutttteM 1 The approaching Stair Election in Connecticut, :oming immediately alter the Maryland Election, vill be very interesting to politicians, and to the a onutry generally, aa furnishing some indications t >f what may be the result of the Presidential Elec- 1 ion in the Fall. 1 Jt seems now to be pretty well settled amongst h 11 sensible men, and disputed by none but a few q razy headed politicians, that the only candidates 'J ) be run throughout the country next Fall for the g 'residency, will be Mr. Van Buren by the Demo- I rats?Mr. Clay by the Whigs?and James (J. Bir- c ey, of Michigan, by the Abolitiouists. All the tl tteinpts making by other parties to get up Fourth a f July Conventions, or any other kind of Conven- J ions, will end in smoke ; and we may as well it ook upon the aspect of the case according to the It rinciples of common sense, rather than indulge in tl he reveries of folly. h It may surprise many of our readers that in the / ipproaching Presidential election we should class r ,h the third party the abolitionists of the non-slave- c toldmg States. But we firmly believe, from what ve have seen of the debates in Congress during he last few years, kept up by the South Carolina J ohticians on one side, and Messrs. Adams, Gid- a lings and other politicians of that stamp on the f ither, that the abolition party in the free States are f iow almost completely organized, and have in- c reused from nothing in 1840almost to(>0,000 inlS43. t t will be perceived therefore that in the event ol i very close struggle between Clay and Van Bureu ? vhich it is of course likely to be, the abolitionists t rill play a very important part, and perhaps deter- r sine the result It is a singular circumstance in s he history of political movements, both in Wash- ll igton and elsewhere, that the South Carolina h le inhere, who are the principal agitators against p le Northern fanatics, have contributed, by their u ternal iteration on the 25th rule and right of peti- h on, to bring into existence at the North an aboliion party, which may be the means of electing ll 4r. Van Buren ; and it is equallv as amusing to b ee Mr. John Quincy Adams and Mr. Giddings, ^ nd men of their stamp, agitating the same quesion on the other side, and contributing on their art to defeat their own man, Mr. Clay! But such n a only a sample of the singular combinations, reults, and consequences, which are created by the 11 novements of politicians when they are guided ^ y impulse instead of sagacity and common sense. " Ivery debate on this rule in Congress has contriuted to increase, yeur after year, the abolition ote; and it may now be said, that in all the de- R ateable States they hold the balance of power. *' Litd it is a still more curious fact, that, as we are formed, the abolition party in all the non-slave- e olding States, is chiefly made up of the whig '' arty, and so far will detract from the strength of B rat party, and contribute to the election of Mr. ^ 'an Buren. c Ritch being the general complexion of the case, v i r* nnnrott p\ii ncr oIpp! win in f*/inn i /nit lir>* P omes very interesting. The recent extraordinury P onvontion held in Hartford is also indicative 8 I the deep feeling beginning to prevail p mongst the people there in relation to this qneson. Probably one-fifth of the voters of the whole tate assembled in that Mass Convention. The a. higs certainly show u great deal of spirit, but we l.' o not believe that the locofocos or abolitionists 1 ill be behind them. There will be a prodigious intest, and it is very difficult, indeed, jus', now to iresee the result. To assist in leading to some _ >rt of a reasonable conclusion, we annex the fol- n wing returns of previous elections in that State :? ti ossrcTicuT State Ei.ections ?Fib?t Monday in Aran, n t?43 1*0. * Pern. Whig. Mt. l)em. Whig. Jlha v ull rote, 27,416 25,391 1,872 25,296 9 .6<it- 171 25 '91 23 296 a cm. plurality, l,l?3 Whi? plurality, 6,303 f1 From these returns, it will be perceived that the 1( joJition vote under the annnal agitation on the M glit of petition by all the ultra factions in Con- 81 ess, to which we have already alluded, has in eased from 174 to 1,872. And we have no doubt F ;cording to all present ap|>earances, that this corn- v ict lorce will be still tarther augmented at the 1! nsuing election. Now it appears, that this abolion force is principally recruited front the whig ^ arty, and so far detracts from the whig forces that e re relied on by Mr Clay. In this respect, there- ^ tre, it is very doubtful if the organization of the w bolitionists in several of the ncn-slaveholding " tates do not lead to a result highly advantageous * > Mr. Van Buren. The democrats go to the polls- P t a solid hody. If they have internal differences " tey are not visible in their conduct at the ballot ax ; they keep them to themselves, and do not ^ partite their vote. It appears farther, that the ? hig force in 1840 counted upwards of 6,000 votes lore than last year. Now it will be determined " V the ensuing election, whether they can ring out all their force again under pte- 11 nt circumstances, or whether the democrats '' ho have already increased over two thousand ^ uring the last three or four years, cannot increase p teir vote still faither, and be able to keep the ? round. Setting aside the singular element of nbo- 1 tion which enters into the contest, and it will be 1 erceived that between the two great parties in onnecticut will come up the old questions that ave just been submitted to the popular decision i,n luryland; that is, a United Stutes' Bank?a pro- 0 ctive tariff?distribution or assumption?and all " te other usual questions and topics which agitate te country. This will give to this election a dis- c net and practical form different from that of the a larnaon contest; ana we shall look upon th? elecion in Connecticut as a very interesting symptom a f what we may expect next fall. v Great Movement of the FotmiERiTis.?Ho- j ace Greeley, the editor of the Tribune, and his ^ hilosophical associates of the grand Fourier reve- ? at ion, new religion, or new social system, have put ( orth the following bulletin for the assembling of he faithful in rhis city on the 4th of April:? IENERAL CONVENTION OK THE FRIENDS OF * ASSOCIATION IN THE UNITED STATES.

It is intended to organize a L 'eat central club or convention, which may give a H sw direction to the whole country, and gradually ft irn all farms, fowna and villagea, into grand Fourier 1 woriations, with palaces, large boarding houses, a nd every thing on the industrial order o( science n the principles of the French philosophy invented " y Charles Fourier, which ia uspeciea of 'material- " im" trom stem to stern, and nothing elee. Such a t] lovement involvns the destruction of everything in |( 'ligiou, morals and society, ira at present organted?but they cannot succeed. Salem Dtti hfh, Esq., well known in thia city r nd Alhanv, as a distinguished advocate and ri ounsellor Ht law, died yesterday morning alter tl uf a few daya illness ti Sr. Levin a Lecture on "Foreign Interfe- J rence " at Ul? Tabernacle last Evening* J A Urge and most respectable audience assembled | . it the Tabernacle last evening, to hear the much i alked of lecture on O'Connell and Repeal, by Mr. | ^evin the distinguished orator of Philadelphia, ilr. Levin did not disappoint the expectation of his learers. We have seldom listened to a more elouent, forcible and deeply impressive discourse, j rhe character of American liberty?the deina j ogueistn of O'Connell?the sufferings of oppressed reland?their true remedy?the subtle and mishievous attempts to obtain Pupal ascendency in bis country, were the leading topics of the lecture> nd each was handled with the skill of a master, lr. Levin's elocution is extremely pleasing, lie is ndeed one of the very best lecturers we have ieard for some time. We trust that he will repeat his lecture, which is certain of being as popular icre as in Philadelphia. At this crisis, when the Lmerican Republicans are arming for the fight, a epetition of this powerful discourse would be pe | ularly appropriate and effective. ; The Broken Monied Corporations.?This sub- | ect still continues to excite a great deal of feeling , ind sensibility amongst that portion of the comtnu- , tity in which a healthy moral tone exists; and we rave no doubt that some distinct movements, both )f a popular and judicial character, will before long ake place with respect to these companies. We understand that a number of the ruined and lefrauded stockholders from the country are rnak- . ng preparations to come to New York at the next 1 uceting of the Grand Jury, for the purpose of pre- | enting their several cuses before that body for t heir action. In a matter of this publie nature, it ' ?r .-i, ?i,? < resent District Attorney is so inefficient and so nwilling to move. Many of the poor stockholders ave thought that it was necessary for them to ohain the advice and concurrence of the District Atorney before going before the Grand Jury; but we ielieve this is a mistake. Any stockholder who ias been ruined and can make an affidavit to thut act in the proper way, can go before the Grand ury, and then the whole subject will be legitilately presented to that body. There is, as we ave stated, every reason to believe that preparaionsare making by the ruined farmers in Western few York?by mechanics in thiB city?and by vieims in distant States, Pennsylvania for instance, o make a combined effort at the next meeting of he Grand Jury to bring to punishment the jugglers nd swindlers by whom they have been stripped of heir property. In addition to this we also understand that a reat popular movement is in contemplation in reition to the same subject. We believe that there re a number of subscription papers going round nr the purpose of procuring names preliminary to ailing a public meeting in this city, when the iffiole history of these broken and juggling cororutions will be detailed?the whole subject exosed to the public in all its horrors, and ane.xpresion of the public opinion of the city of New York romulgated to the world, thereby showing that here still lives in this community a deep sense ot istice, and that there is an anxious desire to wipe way the foul stain which these iniquitous corporaone have impressed upon the commercial and nancial character of this great metropolis of the Inion. ????? I Progress ok the New Literarv Movement. -The publication of literature on the cheap and asty plan, as it has been not altogether improperly :rmed, does not go ahead as rapidly as formerly. \ 'he sale of the blue and yellow literature is now ery languid, and the periodicals of the same stamp re wolully diminished in their circulation. Anoui j pvo or three years ago, some of these cheap period- , :als sold, we understand, from 1,500 to 2,000 copies i reekiy in Boston and Philadelphia, but are now J link down to a tale of 100 or 150. A variety of causes have produced this change i 'erhsps one of the most popular movements ! rhich have contributed to drive out of exrtence the cheap and nasty system has been tie revival of the New York Mirror by Morris, Villi* ic Co., which is going ahead with xtruordinary rapidity, not only on its own ] noting, but in connection with the other bijoun ^hich they republish under the general nanis of i ; the Mirror Library," with notes and annotations. Ye understand that the demand for these beautiful ublications increases every day, and has almost aligether demolished the cheap und nasty trash Well, this will have its run for a time, like the eautiful opera in opposition to the shilling theatres, lut it will require u great deal of tact, and talent, nd industry, on the part of those engaged, to carry to its fullest extent and make it permanent ' those engaged in it bestow their exclusive attenon to it, and exert all their energy and enterprise, ley tnay and must succeed in making a very andsome fortune out of it. One of the most susicious things about the New Mirror is, that doses Y. Beach has the principal management ol ts circulation nnd publication throughout the couniv., ,i? >At ,u?, k... i lo any good to it, no more than to any thing else. iVe should be very sorry, however, if Morris, Villis ite Co. should suffer in any way from this annexion. They are doing as well as they can, ,nd deserve to succeed. Another branch of the same elegant literature, onsists of the magazines. Godty't Lady't Book, nd Mr. Post's Columbian Magazine, are very leautiful publications, got up with great elegance, nd quite unexceptionable. They are also doing veil. On the whole, we are rather favorable to this iterary movement, and wish k all possible success, die cheap and nasty publications have had their lay, and produced their eflects. We don't believe hey can be revived, although the Messrs. Harper ire doing all they can to keep them alive. Hut ;ven they won't succeed. Swindling vs. Smuggling.?A young man, ol ' atlier respectable address, whose name we could lot get at, was yesterday brought to the U. S. ifarshal's office, by Captain Lowber, of' the MonteuntB, charged with endeavoring to obtain money rom Messrs. Woodhull and Minturn, by threatenng to inform the Collector of the Port, that there vere smuggled goods on board the packet ship jiverpoo), now on her passage to this port. lie epresented himself as the agent or consignee of he venture, and that he had received a similar one ler the Montezuma, on her last passage. This iaused the agent of the line to send to Captain jowber, who took the fellow in charge. The darshnl not having cognizance of the complaint, elerred the Captain, with his dandy smuggler, to he Police oflice. The result of the application we lid not lcaru. Bail Reposed.?His Honor ihe Recorder, at re suspected, has refused to admit Ashley to bail. Ie thought that there was such a prima facia case aade out, us to justify the withholding of the enefit of bail. Besides, the Grand Jury for the !ourt of General Sessions will meet on Monday ext, when the case will be submitted to them, 'he accused was remanded to the Tombs. The Spring Fashion in Hats ?The immortal .eary <k Co., hatters, at 4 and 5 Astor House buildings, have issued their fashionable bulletin >r the spring fashion in hats for the year 1844.? 'hey give two engravings of hats, marked No. 1 nd No. 2, with all the scientific dimensions, conisting ol crown, tip, brim, band, binding and uckle. No. 2 is the mast elegant pattern of a hat hat ever decorated the head of a D'Orsay. Call and iiok at them. Accident to Chancellor Fekmnohttyskn.?We ' egret to leum that the Chancellor met with n seious accident n day or two sinre, by slipping on ie ic# on the sidewalk, whereby lus n m wasfrac- J ired. He was doing well, however. Italian Opera?First Night op Ltjcia di Liammkrmook ?Last evening, the Italian troupe, ;ave the first representation ol '* Lucia di Lammernoor," before one of the most crowded, fashionable, elegant and enthusiastic audiences that we fver saw assembled in New York. The prolusion )f splendid women in most splendid dresses was tever surpassed. The troupe exerted themselves ivith no ordinary skill and success. All acquitted hemselves well?Valtellinn, Perozzi?but particularly did the beautiful Borghese, bringdown storms if applause, braves and bouquets. She never lookid better, sang better or acted with finer spirit and expression. Her costume was quite picturesque ind Scottish, and said to have been invent :d und prepared by a new modiste iresh from :he Parisian world of fashion, whose name it Madame Le Brun. The audiences of the Opera teem to increase in beauty, numbers and splendor, ;very succeeding night. It is now said that such ,s the rage for this refined amusement that private jails and soirees are comparatively deserted by the Plite and fashionable. Mozart was sent from Pontius to Pilatus with ais incomparable Don Juan, and was at last obliged to accept the offer of the proviaci 1 theatn at Prague. Belisario, and even the Puritana, die not everywhere meet with the same enthusiastic reception as in Paris, London, und Naples. Ir, Vienna and Milan, lor instance, they were n< great favorites da capo, and have been received, il not coldly, at least coolly, during their lust season Belisario, particularly, has perhaps made as many fiaschi as fnrior, but Luciu walked everywhere triumphantly before the footlights. During three or four was the season Opera in Italy, and lias even now a firm place in the London and Parisian theatres. This is one of the auomaliei which are frequently to be found in all works ol asliion, for the Puritani is much more superior tc Lucia than Lucia is to Belisario, although the airs jf the latter Opera are more insinuating. Bui Lucia hus more soul, and possesses the advantage jf n careful, although not very original instrument ation. When Donizetti wrote Belisario he musi lave been in extremely good spirits, to produee a work where one melody treads unon the heels ol another; but he thought more when he composec Lucia, which is universally acknowledged to hr lis best tragic Opera up to that time, not even Annsi Bolena excepted. It was first produced in 1835, it the Pergola, in Florence, by Tacchinardi, now Madame Persiani, Duprez, 108 present Tenor ol he Parisian French Opera, und, it we are not misaken, by the late Cartagena, then the loving eacher, or teaching lover of Adelaide Kemhle The beauties are very numerous, and all tel tjpon the audience in the most effective manner we name the delicious duett of the first act SuiU 'onibti tli mio padre, the moderato movement o winch is only surpassed by the enchanting sim dicity of the allegretto " Vtrrano a le iu.ll 'aura I miei urdenti tot/iiri Udruiil mar ihe marmura, is written in triple time, as generally all the gem; af this opera are, and is embroidered upon a ven delicate and plaintive melody. The linale was ad rnirably sung by Borghese and Perozzi, although the ,second part was given a little too loud. The nccond act, und the stretto, which forms purt of it, is one of the composer's best inspirations; it ilong, but it has no longueurs like the first finale o] ihe Puritani, and is written after the usual patten of modern morctauxd'enstmble, only that it isled of by the bass instead of the soprano; it can truly b?

called a grand composition,with a very brilliant biv not noisy instrumentation, and ok mirucula tniracu 'orum .' There is a characteristic connexion be iween the words and the music, a circumstance which is, through its rarity, of great merit in ar Italian air upon which you could as easily sing, " ] love you as I hate you, as easily cry as laugh. The eflective passage, (sung by Perozzi, in excelleni style,) Maledftto ria V ittanle is alone worth ten other finales, and it is no wonder that it is as great a favorite with the singer as with the public. It is really of an uncommonly thrilling and exciting complexion; and the sudden appearance ol Edgaro. his pale countenance set off by his dark cloak?the universal con sternntion?the icy question, "Son tue ciJJ'rt ilie heart-rending si ot Lucia?will move ttte most ipathique spectator. This scene was rapturouslt ipplauded, and an encore demanded, but the perlonners appeared too fatigued to comply with the wishes of the audience. Nor is the closing scone of the third act less pow srfnl,. independent of it? affording, even to an indif lerent singer, an opportunity of shining. This a'11 is beautifully introduced with an extremely touch mghorn accompaniment, and its pathos is continu ally progessing from the glorious Che a dio tpiegasli I'ali, Oh, hell, almn innamorala, [ill it reaches its climax with the hero's death. It this rare combination of excellent finules we fine the principal, if not the only reason, of the universal success of the opera : the less brilliant piecet being very ingeniously hidden in the middle, ani serving as a toil to the gems. The whole work is moreover, rendered accessible to provincial the aires, because it requires only one prima donna, t tenor and a bass singer, and each of them has ont or two airs, besides the numerous duets. If it hat a fault, it consists in the absence of trios and quar tettos. The orchestra acquitted themselves with thei far-lamed excellence, and Mr. Rapetti gathers fresh laurels with his admirable violin soio. Tin chorusses were better than usual. There appear: to be some change in the tenors. The scenery it the last act, representing a church-yard, was mucl and deservedly applauded. Avropot dtt hot let.?While on the subject o the Italian Opera, we may as well give the follow; ing communication, sent us by Signor Antognini in reply loan attack upon his character as a gen tleman, which appeared in a Sunday paper ol th? " cheap and nasty" order. Here it is New York, Feb. 30, 1844. J. O. Bemsktt, Est*. Dear Sir : I take the liberty of Rending you a copy of a note jus written by me to the Editors ol the Sunday Times ani Noah's Weekly Messenger, which will bo published ii their next sheet, as I have been given to understand t>; the person I saw at their office.

The remonstrants urge, that, as the street waa named after one of our revolutionary generals, it is to be hoped that it will not be changed to suit the notions of the day, but he continued as it is, to : perpetuate in a slight degree the memory of one who bad assisted to render us a Iree aud happy people. If aler Purveyor.? Aid. Lkk offered a resolution, compelling the Water Purveyor to perform the duties re- , ceutly petlormrd by the Superintendent of the Crotou Aqueduct, which office has been abolished. The reason I given for its adoption, was, that the Mayor refused to sigu the bills of workmen, owing to an error in tha I adoption ot a previous resolution. Adopted. Resignation oj .ilderman Alus/i ?A communication was 1 received from Alderman Na?ii of the 7th ward, asking to t be released from lurther service aa Chairman of the Committee on Public Offices and Kepairs He alleged as rea' aona for this request that his labors to produce reform in that department, and correct abuses, have met with no concurrence from his associates, and therefore he desired to continue in that positioa no longer Alderman Scoles said that this was a strange proceeding on the part of that gentleman, when, according to his own statement, his services were now called <o check 1 corruption He hoped that a select committee would be raised to investigate this matter. Alderman Nasii replied that the course of the Superintendent of Repairs, iu violating the ordinances in making I I repairs above the sums authorized, and not advertising i lor proposals for all public work to be executed over the I urn .if sunt) had been so freuiient that he could not long- ! ' er usuime the responsibility of chairman of that commit' tee. lie then pointed out a number of instances recent I and remote. Alderman Bmcos said, that so far as related to the refit' ting of the office of the Clerk of Common Council he mere. ly should say that the Alderman of the 7th voted for it, and that the alterations were not of an extravagant cha| racier, but were culled for, and would he found of must essential service for years to come. He waa sorry to see the personal uuimosity of the Alderman oi the 7th govero1 ing nis official opinion in this Board. I Alderman Nash replied that the one of the reasons for > this violation of duty was, that this committee, of which s he was chairman, were oil of one political party. 1 Baiaaa?I don't think they are. (Laughter) . Alderman Nash replied that one of the reasons that induced the committee to sustain the Superintendent was, that he was one oi the best customers of a portion of that committee from whom much material for public use was | purchased. Bhic.os?Who are they 7 ' Nash?Three at least that I could name?I would also - allude to the copper guttering for Franklin Market,which i I believe cost at least . $100 more than others would have charged. Aldeiman Tii.lou responded, sustaining the fluperin; tendent in the repairs of the office ol'the Clerk of the Common Council,which he said would more thnn repay double their cost by the convenience to the public at large. He > also reviewed the other charges made by Alderman Nash, L and alleged that they were vague, and, he believed, unfounded; as nearly all appeared to be based upon a mete ) difference of opinion and naught else. He hoped that a lull investigation would he made, and as he was chairman | of the committee to whom these charges had been refer red. he would devote next week to a complete elucidation ol all connected with it. Alerman Si.oi.ks said that the charges against the Superintendent had been referred to that gentleman as chairman of that committee, about six months since, and still the committee had never reported. He then alluded to the fact that the committee on Fublic Offices and Hepairs _ had been all selected from one party, which was rather ; surprising, when the worthy President of this Board had always sustained the principle that the minority should be represented in all committees, in order that a check i should lie held over the expenditure of all public, moneys. He then proceeded to compliment Alderman Nash in thus , defying his party friends, nnd exposing what he believed to he corrnptiou, and his friends may rule him out if they I please. Nash?Let thc-m do 60. I Brkics?1 call the gentleman to order?I did not say 1 that lie was ruled int. Scolf.s?The gentleman did say that all of that commitI ii,? w?i, rvf nnn enlitieal nartv Whinh did he menu if not the gentleman of the Seventh? He could not cer- i tainly tllnde to the Alderman of the Seventeenth?and . he did not take his own assertion as applicable to himself (laughter) He concluded by moving the reference of I the present charges against the Superintendent to the same Special Committee to whom the previous charges had been made. 1 The communication of Alderman Nash and the charges against the superintendent of repaiis, were then referied co the special committee, of which Alderman Tillov is , chairman. .Appropriation Bill?An ordinance appropriating $918,104 11 lor redemption of city stocks due in February and j March of the present year, and interest thereon, was adopted. The $1000 Biihe.?A communication was received from the clerk of the common council relative to that $1000 sent to Sheriif Hart as a bribe to refuse to execute John 0. Colt, asking for some dual disposition of this money. Alderman Woodhi'll moved a reference to the finance committee, which was adopted. Proieculionof Weighers ? A communication was received from the Attorney of the Corporation in answer tea resolution of Aldermun Scares, to discontinue suits commenced by Corporation (or violation of city ordinances ? The communication was of u my stified character, as the itlnrniiv nrntfiTH I no nninion. Th? oriirinAi rAsnlntinn of Vlderman Scol es,authorizing the attorney to discontinue the suits, was then adopted by a vote of 10 to 6. National Dry Dock.?A memorial, asking Congress to make a general survey of the harbor of New York, in order to select a site for the construction of a Dry Dock, was offered and read, with a resolution calling upon the Mayor i to allix the Seal of the City, and forward it to Washing | ton Alderman Woodhl'll said he thought that asking foi another survey would only postpone the matter, as such application had been continued for upwards of ten years. Alderman Cue thought that a general survey would be the means of accomplishing this measure. Alderman Pcanr said that two thirds of the revenue war collected in this city, and we therefore could demand this matter as a right, and not go cap in hand lor it. It wasltheir duty to build a dry dock here?the location? the necessity demanded it?and had demanded it for years past. Alderman Nash said the reason that the dock had not ! been built long ago was, because certain speculators and -apitalists desired to have their own site selected, and application for another survey would only delay the matter, f Alderman Bkekvoort said that tne United States Suri veyor had reported against the selection of a site on this , island, and he therefore believed that a full survey had lot been made, by the persons selected by the govern merit, which this petition now called for. I Alderman Woodhull moved to strike out all in the petition asking for a further delay in the construction of , i Dry Dock until the next session of Congress, which was lost. The memorial and resolution wero then adopted by c vote of I'd to 4.
