(Correipondencefof tbaf Herald.] Washington, Monday night, i July 1. 1844. > Important Political Movementt?The Bridal Party and Champagne?Wathington after a Settion of Congreu. J as. G. Bennett, Esy:? In the absence of your regular correspondent from the federal metropolis, 1 shall venture, though a little in arrear of', your post haste despatch and fidelity, of giving you a comment or two upon matters and things at Washington. Coleridge, you know, who is considered at least equal in rank with Natty Willis and Professor Longfellow in the science of poetry, flatly declares that i "All thoughts, nil passions, all delights Whatever stirs this mortal frame, j Are all but miuisters to love And feed the sacred flame." From which predicates we draw the following deductions 1st That all the "thoughts" of President Tyler for twelve months past, in regard of a re-election: 2nd. That all his "passions" with refractory office-holders and office-seekers: 3rd. That all his "delights" Irom the anticipated immediate annexation of Texas, 4th. And that "whatever has stirred his mortal frame" in prospect of the triumph of the Tyler /oarty, by luck or by legerdemain, have all been he ministers to his "sacred flame," for the beau tiful and accomplished lady with whomhe has con summated so signally ana triumphant-ly t? 1st. A treaty of re-annexation. 2nd. A perpetual treaty of friendship, amity, and commerce. 3rd. The election for a second term to conjugal felicity. 4th. An example worthy of imitation by all old bachelors and widowers whatsoever. 5 h The acquisition of a prime minister indis pensable to the chief functionary of a republican people. G/eat and weighty achievements, which cannot fail to meet the approbation of the goldrn chop stick of his copper-colored majesty of the Celestial Empire. On Saturday last, the Executive and bride were at home. Atone o'clock, Martin Kannohan ac cordingly took his station at the portal of the "El liptical Saloon," and announced the visitors as they were ushered in to tender their joy, their wishes,and their congratulations. The centre table wbs ornamented as follows: 1st. A rich cake in the centre, of fifty pounds of fruit, from the four quarters of the globe, including Texas, " inexplicably mixed up," and coated with an incrustation of an inch of loaf sugar, beautifully ornamented with flowers, loves and doves, and encircled at the base with a wreath of roses of the two houses of York und Lancaster. 2dly. Madeira, champaign, sherry, and lemon ade, interspersed with vases of flowers culled from the public gardens, and arranged under the perso nal supervision of Jimmy Maher, u rtpaler and a dimocrat, yet opposed to Daniel O'Connell, and in favor of John Tyler. 3dly. On the outer circumference, a variety of cakes, oranges, &c. Heads of departments, subs and expectants, members of the corps diplomatique, civil, naval and military officers and subordinates, with a cha ry leavening of the sovereign people, made up the composition of the throng of incomers and outgo ers, from one to three o'clock, during which time the liquors (barring the lemonade) were exhaust ed, the sweetmeats and confects annihilated, and the President and his lady overwhelmed by the ac cumulated suffrages of a thousand people. The Prnaiiiorif'a fa no w ? a ilium! n?fs?r) uriflt #vm nmnU President's face was illuminated with triumph, gratitude, and gratification. The bride appeared as beautiful and refreshing to the eye as " Meek Aurora, daughter of the dawn," When first she unveils, in the light of the summer's morning, the majestic proportions of St. Anthony's noae. Mrs. ex-President Madison, in full oriental costume, turban a la Stambool, was conspicuously the faverite among the ladies. The Secretary of State, on the other hand, deported himself with the chivalric gallantry ot a true bred Carolinian.? The author ot Ahasuerus, and the private secreta ry were not forthcoming, having left, as we are in formed, in the morning for the family homestead on James River, whither the whole are tending for the celebration of the second quarter of the honey moon. At sunset there was music in the President's Park by the Marine Band. The city is dull as a Quaker sermon. No news. The July and August elections are to decide the question o( an Extra Session. If they should be Polkish, Congress, it is said, will be convened to divert tne Texas thunder to the original inventor, who has no notion of being robbed of his patent. Mr. Calhoun is bent upon a Southern Conlede racy. He is using Mr. Tyler to that end, else why should the President's overtures have succeeded with him, when they were rejected by Wright, Buchanan, Woodbury, Allen and others. The idea of a Southern Confederacy with Mr. Calhoun is no empty abstraction. It is a full grown vam pyre, ana ready at the first dark hour to come out into the open air, with its harsh infernal hissing of " dissolution?dissolution." Let it be mentioned "red-'of R ???ner, of N. C., and Hammett, of Mia., of th* H >use ol Representatives, that tuey uic ui uit v^ry few ex ceptions who refused pay for absenteeism, deduct ing a material item from their aggregate per diein allowance, and declining its acoeptance.

Since our worthy friends, Pomeroy <Sc Co., have had the patriotism to come out boldly and take let ters for 64 cents from here to New York, 1 think a line, by the way of news, would be acceptable, and you may now be advised daily of what is going on in our Queen City of the Lakes. Although I am aware that some of our jockics may not like to have the truth known, in relation to the quantity of breadstuff on hand, at this place, at this time. Nevertheless it being your policy to give the earliest intelligence to your readers they may be able to derive from any source, I deem it but justice to give you a brief statement of the amount of breadstuffs thrown into store here and at Black Rock, for hypothecation, to wit: Wheat, 130,000 bushels, equal in flour to. . ., 33,3.13 bbl*. Flour about . 100.000 1 Making the enormous amount of 133,333 1 In addition of this there is a vast amount of pork, beef, ashes, wool, and other products from the far weat, most of which has been thrown into store here by the "Shipping Brokers" for higher prices. As well might tney undertake todamjup the Nia gara Riveras ro accumulate jen excessive amount of property at this point with the view of raising the price. Who ever heard of anything but ruin by hypothecation 1 The harvest has already com menced in Ohio and other Soutli Western Slates, and owing to the heavy rains and unsettled state of the roads since the navigation opened, not one half of the surplus old crop has been marketed by the farmers in many parts of the Western States, whilp at the same time the coming crop looks un usually well, and from present appearances I see no other way to ensure an export demand but to let flour go down to four dollars per barrel in your city, and let 2 or 300,000 barrelsgo off at once. The retail price of flour whicn our city people have tojiay, is out of all reason compared to the price it retches in your market. It brings about 31, and made so by our "shipping brokers." Another fine specimen of the use of that class of citixens. Flour should be $3 to $34 here. Junius. Canana.?We have Montreal papers of Monday. Montreal is rapidly and substantially improving.?

Although in a place where 1 hear but little of the news of the day, still, as my pen can never be idle, I shall take my subject, even if it only be a broom Btick, for it may serve as a handle to some thing better. This place consists of one row of small thatched houses, stretched along the sandy beach, which forms, with the exception of three small wharves, the landing place for merchandize. Back of the town, the country is very low for a considerable distance, and in the rainy season is generally flooded with water. From here, by the "Cantino Real," to Neuvitaa (40 leagues), on the north coast, your way lays over a pretty level country, well wooded, though not very well watered, but much of it good tor cultivation. The whole Island generally, however, and this region ol it in particular, has been for the last 11 months cursed by a most destructive and dread! ul drought, such as none can bear record of in times past. Thousands and thousands of cattle have died, and you meet with their lean carcasses by the road side und in the thirsty fields, wherever you turn ? But, thank God! several showers fidve lately blessed the burning earth ; und I learn from Prin cipe that the corn and grass is again springing up; but what the next sugar crop will be, no one can yet tell, for the very roots of the cane! may have been shriveled up in the crispy bosom of the mo ther soil that should have nourished it, bedewed with nature's tears ? To supply one of the many deficiencies in the markefo! this province, 1 am told that a vessel has just arrived at Neuvitas from New York, bringing corn, oats, hay, &c., which is selling rapidly it high prices. Freight for the North is now very scarce, and 1 do not know what the four or five packets which trade from New York to the last named place, will do for the next six or eight months to come, unless the numerous copper mines of Bayatavo yield enough to make up the deficiency in other freight The mines referred to will, I doubt not, soon form a very important feature in ihe commerce of the Island of Cuba with the United States; for several of them are owned by American companies, who are preparing to work them extensively. One Mr. Ditson, of Boston, has just put up at his mines a splendid steam engine of Northern manufacture, ana I hear that a copper company lately incorpora ted in New York, has also ordered another engine for their mines, which are in the neighborhood ol the former, both of which have produced much of the rich ore sold in England, and bid fair, if some thing can be|done in the United States,to give here after to American vessels a vast quantity of freight The Island, I believe, is now perfectly tranquil in every part, and if the refreshing showers do con tinue, it will soon smile again as the garden ol Eden. Saudis. Mormon War In Boston. It seems that the Mormon war has extended to the quiet village of Boston. We find in the Mail and Timet of the 2d inst., the following account of the firBt onslaught. [From the Boston Times, July 0.] We mentioned In our first edition this morning that a " State Convention" was holden in this city yesterday to take into consideration the claims ot Gen. Jascph Smith for the Presidency. It was convened in the Molodeon, and was attended by a large assembly?many of the audi ence having probably gone to the meeting for tho pur pose of interrupting its proceedings. Although we have no sympathy in the Objects of the meeting?yet we ac knowledge the right oi all to assemble peaceably in our midst and to i e secure against disturbance and violence We are sorry to say, that was not the case yesterday, and that the Mormons were interrupted through thedoy, by various noises, and in the evening the Meloiiton was blessed with '.he presence of several well-known rowdies, many of them whig young gentlemen?who always art a conspicuous part in endeavoring to break up every assem bly, which dees not happen to lie of their own political family. Many of the proceedings and speeches were eccentric of course, andchaiactensed by a vein ofridicu lousner.s and broad farce in the estimation ol those who dissent from the Mormons in opinion?but those things justification to others to rush in and break up tneir meetings. If this is the spirit they meet with in Illinois, then are they more sinned against than (inning. Abbv Folsom was there in the course of the evening, and tried to get a hearing, but the cat-culls and other cries abounded so much, that even ahe tvus ashamed of the disturbers and retired iron) the Hall in disgust. Can. White of Nauvoo aptly declared in the course of the evening, that he had seen Eastern missionaries among the Indians of the West, trying to civilize them, but it the proceedings ef the rowdies that evening were a sample of Boston oivilization, he thought that for the future the missionaries had better stay and begin the work at homo. Gen White also said that he would send a mission of Sacs and Foxes to civilize Boston. In fact the Mormous last night appeared to great advantage by the side of the Boston ellto. During tho latter part of the evening, while one of the speakers was addressing the audience, a young man in the gallerv rose and commenced a series ol rowdy remarks, in the delivery of which he was encou. raged by some companions. He kept on, and when the police came in to take him out, they were assaulted and beaten badly by a set of young desperadoes. After much hard fighting however, they succeeded in clearing the gallerv. One of the assistants, Mr. Sheldon a fine athle tic fellow, was oat badly, but not dangerotisly in the face by a stick in the hands of one of the cut-throats. Th< meeting was soon after broken up. These thiogs ere a disgrace to Boston, and are owing to the culpable conduct of a portion of our ?'respectable six pennies," who make fun out of, and encourage these violations of tho rights ot others, and also to the supineness ef the Mayor and other officers. Tho influence of such papers as we have re ferred to, it it continues to be exerted, will make Bolton a Pandemonian shortly, where human devils will >reign trumphant. The Mormons adjourned their meetiDg to Bunker Hill this afternoon at 4 o'clock. We give the doings of the Conventoin below, ai a fea ture in the history of the times : Hon. Brigham Young, of Nauvoo, President. Hon. William Smith and Gen. Lyman White, of Illinois, Vice Presidents. Hon. William Woodruff* and Prof. Orson Pratt, of Illinois, and Ananias McAllister, Esq , of Boston, and J. H. Felt, Esq., of Salem, Secretaries. The Convention was addressed with much animation and zeal, in the course of the day and evening, by the President, Oen White Hon. Orson Hyde, Daniel Spencer Hon. William Smith, Prof. Orson Pratt, all of Illinois, and George B. Wallace, F.sq , of Boston. [From Boston Mail, July 3.] The Mormon Convention last evening at the Mclodeon hreke up in a row. A set of uneasy spirits continually annoyed: the speaker,'until finally aunt Nabby Folsom rose in her place and essayed to speak (she only asked the modest time of two minutes to tell her story,) when the cry of " hear her, hear her," drowned every thing else, and Nabby put on her dignity and left the place. A young gentleman in the gallery then rose, and, in spite ol all the efforts to put him down, made a sentimental speech and sung a sentimental song. This?that is, either the song or the speech, or both?was too much for Mormon philosophy to bear ; and a party of the faithful having been sent after the police, an attempt to take the last speaker into custody caused confusion to confound itself, and such u scene came off as has not been semi since the great Tyler Mass Convention at Faneuil Hall. Finally, the lights were partially extinguished, and it was voted to dissolve the meeting The audience mostly left, and another attempt was made to organize; but seme of the saints seemed to be of opinion that it was useless to ex pand their eloquence upon bare walla, and they gave it up. The whole affair was disgraceful enough. The Mormons had hired the Melodeou, and had ? right to work off their own folly in their own way, so long as they did not interfere with the rights of others. That they are a set of ignorant and designing men, there can not, we thiDk, alter what has transpired, be any doubt among intelligent men ; but still they have their tights, and theae should not boglnterferad with. Dreadful Affair?A Wifk and Nikcr Shot in THE STREET BY TIIK HfTSBAND OF THE FORMER ? Philadelphia has been again shocked and disgraced by a double murder, committed in open daylight in the public street, iu the district oi Kensington. Yesterdiy afternoon a man named Weaiey Flavell, living at the corner ol Howard and Master streets, deliberately shot his wife and the neice of the latter, a girl 14 years of age, named Elizabeth McMurray The particulars of the dreadful af fair are as follows Flavell, who was a clerk in tho em ploy (of Wright tc Fisher, umbrella dealers In Market street, was intempera'e, and had scarcely drawn a sober breath ler the last month past. Yesterday afternoon about I o'clock, lie came into a room which his wife was clean ing, and told her that he would shoot her. She being ap prehensive that he might do her harm, went to the house oi a neighbor and stayed for some time. At last, thinking that he had forgotten his threat, she started to go back home On approaching the house she saw him standing in the doer with a pistol in his hand. Believing that he intended mischief, she turned to avoid him, and at the 'nme time met in the street her niece, who was coning towards the house At this moment her husband fired the pistol at her. The weapon, as is believed, was loaded with two slugs, one of which entered the hack of Mrs. Flavell, above the hip, and lodged in the abdomen?the other entering and lodging in the abdomen* of the glr). Both wife and girl were lingering in great agony, without liny liope of recovery. I)rs. Bethell and Kline, whoa' tended the nnfortunato females, pronounce the wounds mortal. Flavell was taken Into custody and committed by Alderman ( loud. The prisoner is the person who wis tried for riot at the time ot the railroad disturbance* inKra slngton in 1840. H# was acquitted, and it will be rememf bora that his case caused much excitement. DsvM Pnnl Brown, Esq. defended him, and he proved an nllhi for bis client of a?rather astonishing character PKiUitlpMm Piwh, July a University of tlie City of Sew York. The annual commencement of this institution took place on Tuesday. At 9 o'clock, A M., the Council, Chancellor, Faculties, and Studcuts as sembled at the University, and were joined by a large concourse of spectators, some of whom had been invited to join tn the procession, to the Church of the Messiah, Broadway, which was chosen as most suitable for holding the exercises, and accommodating the very numerous assem blage of visiters, who there repaired to witness the proceedings. Large as the building is, it was not sufficient to contain them ; and we were sorry to see a great many ladies compelled to stand during the somewhat lengthy service. It may be truly said, however, that they were in no wise tedious; for neither the heat of a sultry day, nor the some what inconveniently crowded edifice, proved suffi cient to diminish the great attention that was paid by all preseut to the very able addresses of the ta lented young gentlemen who successively addres sed the house. The procession formed, to proceed to the Church of the Messiah, in the following order:? The Janitor?

When the several candidates had received ihe honorable reward of their mental toil, Mr. George J. Adler, pronounced the valedictory addtess, after which the assembly separated. In connection with the foregoing proceedings of the New York City University, the reporter for the Hera'd begs to submit the following ode, sugges ted by the beautiful address of Mr. Howard Cros by, on "Reverence for Antiquity." The Daya of Old. (For the Herald.) My heart la with the day* of old, When men were frank, sincere and bold ; When malice never wore a smile, Nor honesty gave place to guile. 'Twas then a man his friend could tell? Who dar'd decry, or wish'd him well; For in the face he still could find A faithful index of the mind. 1 hate this age with all my heart, When nature's nothing?all is art; Wherein the ruse, the scheme, the plot, Is to appear what one is not j So that it only seems to lie A college of hypocrisy.

Latest from thk Wkst?Mormon Affairs and the Flood.?Our advices from St. Louis are to the 24th uit. inclusive. They give us a few more par liculars relative to the tremendous flood at the west and the Mormon difficulties. [From St. Louis papers, June 34.] Tiie Me*mo>s ?Gov. Ford, ol Illinois, is at Carthage to negotiate with Jo Smith, just as he did prior to the last Congressional election?when he or his agent* visited St. Louts, contrived a plan to gut a writ against Jo, held it in tnrrorem over him until he had agreed to transfer the whole Mormon vote to Hoge, the Locofoco candidate, and then lot him loose. It will he done. The locofoco* can not dispense with the three or four thousand votes oon. trolled by Jo Smith. Nauvoo is said to be destitute of an adequate supply o! provisions. An order for a largo quantity of flour was sent to this city on Friday, and the steamer Osprey took ua 360 barrels. Saturday was the day appoiated for an advance upon the " Holy City.'' Hancock county is un der martial law, one portion being controlled by the Mor mens, and the other by the anti-Mormons.^No (doubt many of the rumors from that neighborhood are highly exaggerated ; but what the result of the excitement there may be, wc cannot predict, although we are inclined to believe that there will be no serioua conflict between the parties. We learn by the Die Vernon, arrived yesterday from Keokuk, that Gov. Ford hud n ached Carthage end issued order* for the Fourth Brigade of the Fifth Division of MiliMa, composed of Hancock, McDonough and Brown oounties, to concentrate at some point in Hancock county, there to await further orders, should their services be re quired in the present Mormon difficulties. The Flood.?The river is nearly three feet high er than it was during the great flood of 1785. It is new about thirty-seven leet above low water mark, an 1 is still rising. The water is In the store* on the lavea to the depth of six or seven feet. The lower part of the city is inundated, and hundreds of families have been driven from tl.elr dwellings. The wster is over the lower part of Fourth street, and cast of Fourth street bridge most bouses aro surrounded to the depth ot six or eight feet, and some to the roof*. That part of the city is now passable only in boat*. Heveral log cabin* and frame house* have floated past tbi* city, and we learn that at different points above, whole village* have been swept away, tha inhabi tants escsping to the bluffs. Account* from the Missouri, Illinois, and upper Missis sippi, represent a continued rise, and great destruction of property. At this point the river had risen within the 34 nours ending at < o'clock lost evening, IB inches, and is still on the rise. The watar in the atorea fronting tho ri ver is about six feet deep.

Charlick was opposed to this mode oi ap paiutment. The majority in tho Board reluae Police lto lorm, and yet they admit the necessity lor such aid to protect the peace ol the city. He would suggest that the Mayor tend one of his Marshals to perlorm tue required services. Alderman IIasbrouck followed in opposition. He con tended that they were bound to reduce the expenses, and if they appointed at all, let them appoint an eltective force. After some further remaik Irom Alderman Emmans in opiiositlou, the resolution was adopted. Ayes 32 ; Noes 9.

Alderman, as one ot the committee in the case of Mr. Drinker, begged to remaik, that at one ol the com mittee, lie was enabled to say that they (lid uot at any one time meet together. Alderman Hasbkoock objected to the gentleman mak ing any remarks until the committee reported. Assistant Alderman Charlick followed in support of tho chairman. Alderman < oizens said that the committee bad two re ports, and it he was at liberty to revial tho businesa that took place beture the committee he would do so. As-latent Aid.

The Chair was of opinion thut tho Alderman of the 3d Ward (Alderman Gale) had perfect right to reier to uuy matter that occurred in the committee which would jusli fy him in his motion for their discharge. Alderman Gale continued.?The committee were worn out, and nothing was done ; he would, therefore, move their discharge. Alderman Warp, fas one of tho committee, was tired out. He begged their disoharge, as nothing more was to be done by (hem. Alderman Hairrouce, it he knew his own heart and bis own motivts, he had acted in the business with strict impartiality, and hit mind was made up. So far as Drinker was in question, his mind was made up that the charge was untrue. Ho had been treated with discourtesy by the members ol the committee during a lung session, and was in hopes that tha matter could he brought heiore the committee, hut he lotiitd not. He had prepared two re ports in the ease of Mr. Drinker. A Id ei man Gale? (interuipting)?I move that the Re ports lie produced, now that they have been releired to. Alderman Hasiihouce continued?Thut he had no hesi tation, that in the first charge against Mr. Drinker tiiere whs nothing in it to atfect Mr. Drinker. He, however, differed as to the second charge, Aid. Gale all through treated the subject with derision. A Merman ^A^r rose in reply.?The qhsrges ailgiuated nore with Aid Haabrouck, and when the committee met, Aid. IIasbrouck offered to resign ltis place as Chairman ol the committee, but it was n fused. As had been remark ed he had treated the whole subject with derision, as lie felt assured the whole was u mere political ruse; a regular political trick. Assistant Alderman Voohies was present as a member of the committee; but refuted to sign the repnt. All wcie unanimous as to two of the chaigvs, which were not aiu tnined If the report would supply tho testimony, which could he read beloro tho Board, he would sign the report Some of the committee wero snoring asleep on chairs during tho examination. (Laughter.) Ass. Aid. Charlick said it seemed strange that such r, motion should come from the gentleman of tha Second Ward, (Aid Gale.) The motion ought not be made by ?my pet sou who thought that Mr. Di inker was innocent. He would ask why should Mr Drinker, if he were inno cent, be deprived of the advantage of the testimony pre sented. Let it not he kept back irom the public, as the (act of keeping it back looked suspicious, and the exam ination of forty witnesses on such a matter ought not be kept back from the public in such a manner. The cam mittee were not call-, d upon to whitewash the reputation of Mr. Drinker ; but to give the result of their labors to the Board, and let the public see the testimony. There whs much in the. testimony that was favorable to Mr. Drinker; there was also much that was unfavorable? and the individual of the Second Ward Aid Cozzi.ns rose to order. No such term as " indivi dual " should he employed liy any member in speaking of ? brother member ul this Board. Ass Aid Charlick applied the term in the same spirit in which the Alderman of the Second (Aid. Gale) used it, ?'in derision." Aid Oalz explained ; he meant nothing offensive by using the words ?' derision," or " individual " Assistant Alderman Charlice accepted in courte?y the explanation from the Alderman of the Second. He con tended that the friend* of Vlr. Drinker ought not to heaitate to bring forward the testimony. Alderman Galk would lay a few further word*. The chairman of the committee (Alderman Hisbrouek) was the judge iu this case, and judges were considered rl ways impartial. Yet the judge had ransacked the city for evidence in the case. He hoped the committee would 'd be discharged. For himself he had no ghost in the shape ot t card?to stare him in the face as if through a mirror. (Sensation) dstant Alderman Charlick said the affair about the was in itself so very (confusion ) Several decs, " I move an adjournment." (Contusion ) Alderman Millar.?I move we stop here uniil twelve o'clock to-morrow, unless we dispose of tlia subject be fore the Board. Alderman Hasbrocc* felt it dne to himself to state in relation to Mr. Drinker, that he had never heard any thing about him until two days before his appointment; and that lie had acted in relation to him with no preju dice. The statement of the Alderman ol the 3d (Gale) was untrue in regard to the selection of himaelf (Aid. li) as chairman Alderman Cozztxs felt constrained to explain the course taken by the chairman of the committee. Assistant Alderman Charlilr rose to a question of order. The Chair was ef opinion that the Alderman of the 3rd (Cozzens) was not in order in refcrringto matters that occurred under the injunction of secreay before the com mittee. AUterman Cozzzrta felt he was not out of order. The Five Points were scoured for evidence against Mr. Drinker. ?The Chair called the Alderman of the 3rd (Cozzens) to order. He should address the chair. Alderman Cozzzxs wished the chair to look him (Aid. C.) in the face, as it would inspire him with confidence. (Loud laughter, in which the chair heartily joined, and cries of "previous question.") Assistant Alderman Charlick was opposed to the mo tion for the previous question, which was made for the purpose of choking olf the debate when charges wern made against come of the members, (as it was insinuated the "Five Points" were scoured for evidence. (Loud cries of ' previous question," "adjourn," "order.") q'he Chair.?1 decide you out of order. Hit down, air. Assistant Alderman Charlice maintained that he was in ordar.

They were at < nee classical and chaste and well worthy of seeing. The first exhibition was Otty Motty on two strange horses, selected from stables in New York, and never belore rode by him, ou which he stood erect with one foot on each liorse, without suddle or covering. This is what is termed by the anctems in iheir sports "Ammida Haul ores," and we believe has never betore bten seen in this country. The spirit of sport was prevailing, and the odds were j against his peitorming the tusk, 1 mile in 2 minutes 8 seconds, 3 to 1, und even on 2 1U seconds, lie went iortli and rode in most gallant style, and up the back it was a most beautilnl sight?a man erect, one leg on each horse?guid ing in most buautilul style?as straight as a statue nud quite as gracef ul, and came home in 2 minutes 9 seconds. The next was a Chaiiot Race between two Roman Chariots, each drawn by iwo splendid horrcs, and driven by Ctlo Motty anting. Laotim ni, charioteers in Roman sty le, correctly and mag mticenily attired in the ancient costume ot Roman chatioteers, displaying the most incredible skill and address in turning and management of their spirit d steeds, (luring their learlul flignt around the course. The chariots, which were constructed in the strictest conformity with those used by the ancients, were decuiateu in the most gorgeous splendor, and of sufficient strength to protect the daring drivers from accident. Otto Motty appeared on a btage erected tor the purpose in front of the s'auds, and went through his astonishing exhibition ot human strength and cour age lie cast up three cauuoii balls, weighing 24, 3tl and 42 pounds each, hi u distance of trom ten to fifteen feet in the air, und caught the iniuiense ball in its descent upon the back of his uncovered neck without the assistance of his hands, lie ulso caught them front an equal height upon the muscles ol his arms, and balanced them iii that po sit io.i. This was preceded t.y a match race ol one mile between Olio iVlotiy, etundiiQr on Iwo horses, und the winning chariot?the chariot to have forty yards in the start. Otto soon recovered the advantage, before they got to the quarter, and led all the way home,w niiingeasy?the other coming in somewhat about a dozen lengths behind. To day (Thursday) there will be two perform ances?one at 11, die other at 4 o'clock.

The wound must have been inflicted hy a blunt instrument or fulling on a hard suit stance ; the external wound was not in itaell sufficient to produce death : the heart was enlarged, the liver fatty, and the lungs diseased, indicative that the person w as t drinking man ; the cause of death must have been the re sult of blows, and not a ommon case of apoplexy. At this stage of the trial, Mr T. Wissrs, who was counsel for Cunningham, moved that the Court charge the jury in the case, of his client, as there was no prool that he struck any blow, and asked for his acquittal. The Coust charged the jury, but they preferred hear ing the defence] Mr. 11. S. Wilsor was counsel for the female, Barnes. Mr. Warses then called a witness, Mr. Michael II Walsh, who testified that it was impossible for anv person ontside the room to see who was within, and the jury thereupon acquitted Cunningham. Mr. Wilsor made an ingenious defence, and called wit nessea to show the situation ol the premises, and strove to prove that there whs no motive for the woman wiibing to inflict a deadly wound on the person of her husband on the contrary, that she sent fur a physician on finding that he was hadiy wounded!

Immediately after the tree was planted, u line was rxtendedfrom its top to the upperpart of Tam many Hall, on which was suspended one of the largest and most splendid banners which we ever beheld. On this banner were inscribed in large and flowing capitals the names of " James K.. Polk and George M. Dallas?and Democratic Heading Room."
