W YC YORK, THURSDAY MO General Working Men's Meeting. A great meeting of the working men of New York and its vicinity, wus held last evening at Croton Hall, fcorner of Bowery and Division street, pursuant to notice, to hear the report of the committee appointed at the last meeting. At 8 o'clock the meeting was called to order by Mr. Maxwell. James A. Pyne, Esq., was appointed Chairman, and G. H. Evans, Secretary. The minutes of the last meeting were read and approved. The report of the committee and plan of organization were next in order. Mr. Co.m.MKRKoRD rose, and requested, before they were read, to be allowed to make a few remarks in relation to himself. He said that some of the members of the committee hud made some insinuations against his sincerity in his ldenlificawith the Society. He now rose to say that he had attended this meeting to repel those insinuations, and to slate that he had identified himself with the Society,and would continue to do so. The reading of the report was next called for, and wu read by Mr. liwveh, one of the Committee. It detailed with minuteness the hardships and disabilities under which the working classes labored; and, amongst other things, stated that the Committee hail investigated a number of facts bearing on that point. Thuy ascertained, in the course of their enquiries, that there were too many working men congregated together in the cities and towns throughout the Union, which reduced the price of labor far below the means of subsistence fur the mechanic and his fumily. The power of machinery, and its effects upon manual labor, wus next discussed, and the report concluded by recommending an equitable distribution of the public lands amongst the working classes, which was the only remedy for the evil. The Report was. then adopted, ,after an unimportant amendment. Thu constitution of the society, and the plan of organization, containing the by-laws and rules of the society, were next read. These documents were very voluminous, and a full hour was consumed in reading them. It was then moved and seconded that the constitution and plan of organization should be adopted. Newman opposed the motion. He said the documents were extremely lengthy, and required great consideration, and there were several members of the society that would wish to consider them before they were passed, and it was finally agreed that the further consideration of thosu documents should be postponed until Thursday week. Mike Walsh was-then loudly called upon to address the meeting. Mike responded and said:?My friends, 1 caine not to this for the purpose of making a speech, but as I hove been called upon it shall not ho said that i dodged the question. There is not a man in the community but feels the degradation that the working men labour under from the accumulation of capital. Almost the whole of the civilized world has from tims to time witnessed the changes that have been brought about by the operation of capital in pulling down one class and raising another on its ruins. I will uow, said Mike, advert to the evil of strikes amongst the working classes. I have felt them myself, and so far as my own experience has served me, I know their disastrous results. Mike then glanced at the mode of electing old spit-licking hunkers. If one ot those fellows wanted to get himself elected to an office (snid Mike) he'd tell vou that his election would nroduce the initlenHiim and I tin the salvation, not only of thu working classes, hut of the Union. But herejs the only scheme, that which has huen ottered to-night;and if adopted and followed will renovate the working classes. We have heard of John Jacol) Astor and Stephen Oirard, who have realized millions, hut did they realize those millions by their own labor 7 No. They realized them from the sweat and labor of the hard-working mechanic and laborer. But here is a practical measure, one that every man can understand, one that every inan when he gous to his work shop can read and point out to his fellow workmen its utility. What it proposes is simple?it is plain, it is just, and it is necessary?it is just such a plain, practical schome, that you can at once see the utility of?every thing that man eats and drinks must be dug from the soil by the labor of man, and as long as a man is idle and cannot find work, he has a right to look to that soil as his inheritance for subsistence. Here, then, is a practical plan that comes home to every mun. We do not propose to take away uny man's land. We don't propose to take away the farms on Long Island, but we want that the Legisaluture shall not take away the public lands from the working man and his family. Mr. Walsh continued to discuss this topic at considerable length. After which he said that when a man emerges liom the workshops into public life, if he has any talents the first attempt of the aristocracy is to crush him, the next attempt is to buy him, and when that fails they rub him over with plenty of soft soap, invite him to their table, tell him he is a very smart fellow, and thatliu ought to be ashamed to keep such low company.

The bill of fare was excellent, and the lecture and exhibition ol paintings (representing several of the curtosities of the animal, vegetable and mineral kingdom) were interspersed with some excellent songs by Mr. Nash, which had u very enlivening effect; and a recitation front the Professor.

PhtU, Oaaitti of Tattiny >RK ] RNING, MARCH 521, 184' Tits Opera.?Beatrice di Tenda, (Majocchi,) widow of Facina Cane, married Filippo Visconti, (Valtellina,) a great ruke und greater spendthrift, of Lombard, for the sake of Ins rank, which he kindly consented to share with her in exchange for ner ionune. mis is a very imi>oriani nistoricni fuct, as it clearly shows that even in the iron age, old women with gold could find young husbands with debts, and that the old Roman made a mistake in calling gout, "O tcmyora, (J mores.'" Signor Yisconti, alter securing the castle6 and towns, considered it a business not at all "stale, fiut and unprofitable," to get rid of the widow, who is said to have been "fat aud lorty," but not over fair. The same opinion is entertained by Signora Agnese, (Albertazzi,) who, wishing to become Mrs. Visconti, accuses BeatriT of adultery with Oronibeilo, (Antognini.) This individual, happening to be a tenor and no bass singer, is, of course, innocent, having only secretly met his kinswoman to assist her in refuting the churge of conspiracy brought against her by her loving husband. But he, having made up his mind to find Beatrice guilty, causes Orembello to be put on the rack, which, making him rather uncomfortable, tortures the same into an acknowledgment of the supposed adultery. Beatrice is, therefore, found guilty by the unanimous verdict of an enlightened jury of the middle ages, and consequently beheaded by iier lord. Now-a-davs he would nave been satisfied with ten thousand dollurs damages. Thus ends the opera. Here is another libretto, as insipid and milk-andwatery, us only Italian operas can be; it does not possess one redeeming feature, 110 action, no incident, and of course no invention and originality; being nothing more than a miserable patchwork, made up from the rugs of an old Italian novel, the castle of Ursino. It is a fact, that those so called adaptations, as Lucia, Romeo and Julia, are only surpassed by the nonsense of the original libretti of Chiara, Puritani, Bianca, &c. The authors are not so much to blame, but the compcsers, who take them, and nut them in music, which shows a decided want of judgment, as much depends on the dramatical episodes of the nlot. The meaere ness ot the words is, perha|*>,one of tlie reasons why we do not find in this opera (he soul-stirring melodies ofNorma and la Straniera. A kind of ennui pervades the whole composition,and although there are in it some excellent passages, as for instance, the beautiful air in the introduction, the finale xuistizia per 7'trfa, or the delicate romance, Angclo di pace. Yet we meet with the most singular attempts of originality on one side, and the most impudent plagiarism on the other. Toe sofriii tortura, which is the only popular air of the opera, is entirely taken from Weber's last musical idea, with a substitution of common time for three fourths. The opera labors, moieover, under the greatest fault u musical composition can have; it is very much spun out, and decidedly annuyrux. There will be plenty of musical fanutics, who will say it must be heard several times ; but this can only he applied to the profound creationsof a Ilaydn, Handel, or Beethoven, but not to the hollow and superficial compositions of the Italian school Another fault h, that the whole loud is thrown on the shoulders ot Beatrice winch makes it a great favorite with prima donnas di primo cartcUo as the Ungheranu 1'ersiani. The latter, particularly, is truly great in it, and she alone saved it from a Jiutco in London and Paris, although even the could not carry it fhrough two seasons. It is, therefore, not unjustly considered one of the weaker, if not the weakest, of Bellini's works; and in sharing this opinion, proved moreover through its simple mnitdhtime on nearly nil European stages. We do not think to sin against the "i/e mortuis nihil nisi Dene," for Bellini is still living, and he will live through many years to come. it is a hard task to speak of the execution of the opera; praise we cannot, and blame we would not, it we could help it. There are critics who find fault with every thing out of personal vanity, and to show their power, just as certain princes, whose land could be conveniently stowed away in a cup and saucer, hang every year sevcrul dozen inen, and comparing their criminal statistics with those of great kingdoms, draw inferences favorable to their own greatness. Valtellinu, whatever his faults may be as a director, is a capital singer, and sustained the difficult part of Visconti witn much effect, lie evidently labored hard to neutralize the anticipated downfall of the opera, but succeeded only parliully. Antognmi made Ins first appearance fast night; indeed he did, and was very warmly received. lie is not yet in the possession of his full means, and we really hope that he soon may be"hiinself again,"for lie decidedly has the best method of nil. He hud not very much to do, as the first duett was left away, probably because Albcrtazzi would not have been equal to it; but what be bad to sing went off" very well Majocchi sung, as it wus foreseen, very tamt. She has every requisite for the rfilt of Beatrice; that is figure, age and voice, but no method and no taste; she evidently has Iter part well studied, and with skipping the cadencs, changing runs and passages into single notes, and throughout employing slow movements for allegros, she got over it just to avoid a fiasco. We hope she is satisfied, having asserted her right of singing in an opera of her choice,and where th ere is no odium attached to the person, liut now let us have again Borghese, for every body seemed to be, as Rogers says, "in quest of something," and the ladies really do not know what to do with their bouquets. She ought to take tha part of Beatrice, for Majocchi will never do for it; unless it he now Albcrtuzzi's turn " to define her position." Im prima d'/nna tut morte, vive la prima donna.

She said, ' Vou're not going to kill me, are you V aud she took up a rocking chair to defend herself. Site screamed loud two or three times. 1 think siie said, " Don't kill me." She retreated towards the kitchen door^ I struck her with the chair I held,and either knocked the rocking chair out of her hands or she let it lull, she then turned to run into the kitchen. 1 should think I then hit her with the chair on the buck of the head, and that knocked her down.
