pone of getting bin excellency to attend in the city, in consequence of the attack upon St. Philip de Neri, ab >ut noon, there were no ve.-pcra in the other Catholic churches in the afternoon. The excitemeui in the city in the neighborhood of the public ollice-t, newspaper offices, Arc., was most intense all day ' The former riots did not surpass, if they equalled, the intensity of feeling manifested yesterday. In the evening, after the news had been received of the firing upon the mob by the military, the excitement at a distance continued immense. The Aidermen of several wards in the city organized a special police in their wards, who patrolled the streets until a late hour ot the night to presetve order. [From Philadelphia Native American, July 8 J Several of the Native American party, whilst in the church, (St. Philip de Neri) organized a mett ing, and appointed a committee of about 100 men to protect the church and ita furniture, and, we be lieve, they rendered essential service in theireflorts to aave it. It would, most probably, have been fired had it not been for theexeitious of this Committee. The minute the crowd had entered the church, the news was brought up to the head quarters, and agreeably to previous atrangements, the alarm^waa announced by eight distinctive tape upon the State House bell. The military then, as soon as they could get ready, marched to the ground. One com pany Irom Gerrnantown, and two other companies from the country, were ordered out and marched to the spot headed by a band of music. Wr may here state that the Markle Rifle Com pany took possession on Saturday night about half past ten o'clock of the Meyaiiiensiiig Catholic Chutch, and retained it until half past eight yester day morning, when alt was quiet, and remained ao throughout the entire day in that vicinity. At eight o'clock several infantry and cavalry companies marched to the ground; upon arriving they forced the people from the street at the point of the bayonet; some trifling occurrence which prevented the people from retiring as hastily as was desired by the officers, they were ordered to fire upon them near Secotia and Qtie.'n. The volley that was poured into the people produced a sad and luinentable havoc. It was impo (possible to collect the names ot all that were killed and wounded by this indiscreet and unnecessary fire. Ttie member ot the Hibernia Greens, who was trampled upon and beaten as mentioned before, la named Patrick Mears, keeping a tavern near Se venth and Shippe i. He was laying a' the Com missioner's Hall, still alive at 12 o'clock last night. At a few minutes before 12, a troop came dash ing down German street, and ordered oil' some four or five citizens (among whom were the re porters of this paper.) No symptom of an outrage was then manifested, and we regret to say, the mi litary from the country demeaned themselves in the most violent and uncivil manner towards quiet and well disposed people The reporter states nothing but what is substantiated by truth, and when men selected to preserve the peace, sofardemean them selves by rum, as to shoot down quiet citizens, who are prepared at all times to uphold the laws, we must fur ever bid adieu to our country and its in s.itutiooe. A number, it is impossible to tell how many?of the military, have been killed and wounded. At u few minutea before two o'clock this morn ing, a cannon and several muskets were fired by the military at Second and Christian streets. At half past two one piece of cannon and seve ral muskets were in poss-ssiot* of the mob, who h id taken a position in the Sunday market, deter mined to beat back the horse in case they rallied against them.

Th last session only thirteen were tound out of all that were summoned. The Supervisors did their duty always i" this respect better than the Assessors, and it was necessnn ry that proper steps should he taken to secure the atten dance of proper persons to serve as jurors in the city.

Affaire In Philadelphia?The Morale ofPenn eylvanla and Illinois. Again the flames of civil discord have broken out with added fury in Philadelphia, and fresh blood bedews her streets. We give on our first page the fullest possible intelligence of these sad doings, together with the opinions of the press of all parlies. It hus seldom been the duty of any public journalist to present to the world luch a me lancholy demonstration of the disastrous effects of popular passion, raging in a community which does not possess the moral strength to crush a mob. The riots in Illinois and the riots in Philadelphia present a remarkable identity, and enforce the same lessons of warniag and instruction. Both have originated in religious intolerance, stimulated and excited into ungovernable violence by unprin cipled demagogues on all sides. The conduct ol Joe Smith in Illinois, and that of Bishop Hughes in New York, have had much in common. The Mormon Prophet, on the faith of a pretended reve lation from heaven, laid claim to infallibility of judgment and opinion, and organized his ignorant followers into a firmly united band of religious bi gots, with which he assumed to control the politi cal action of all others. Bishop Hughes, with equal intolerance of the opinions of others, endeavored organize his church into a distinct political element, with which he threatened to command and secure compliance with his demands. In both casesa for midable opposition was organized ; and feelings oi the bitterest religious animosity being infused into these opposing elements, the result has been the scenes of violence and bloodshed which have startled and shocked the whole land. There are always to be found in society, men destitute of principle, and of everything which makes good citizens, who eagerly seize upon the opportunities for violence, and the gratification of their own vile passions, presented at such a crisis as that produced by the Mormon prophet in Illinois, and the misguided Catholic prelate in New York Like <1m band, of ruffian, who followed in the tram of the Crusaders, or the wretches who lived on blood during the sanguinary era of the French Re volution, these reckless men, who have nothing to lose, rush with unconcealed joy into the arena and engage with frenzied eagerness in the always easy work of inflaming tfip passions of the mob and overturning the barriers of peace and order' Thus it has been at Nauvoo and Warsaw?at Ken sington and Southwark. ?And most unfortunately, for the interests of society, for humanity, for the character of our country, neither in Illinois nor in Philadelphia, has the moral, conservative power of the community existed in that omnipotence which is absolutely necessary for the maintenance or order and the preservation of the supremacy of the law. Religious bigotry and intolerance, and the desolating agency of bad men have had the held almost entirely to themselves. And this leads us to the consideration of verv important facts. It would, indeed, appear that so ciety in Philadelphia is in a state of complete dis organization. There is no moral firmness?no power?no strength?no influential and controlling authority in the people. There are, it would ap pear, no principles of cohesion to keep them to gether as a civilized community. This entire des titution of moral power appears to have charac terized the enure management of public affairs in Pennsylvania for years past. We see this in the dishonor of the State. That State-rich and fer ule and dishonest ?is weighed down with infamy. The curse of State immorality is upon it, and now its chief city, utterly paralyzed, is prostrate be neath a mob. Asia Pennsylvania, so, alas! it is in Illinois inerr-, .iie same public want of integrity?the same dishonesty?the same destitu tion of moral principle and moral power are dis covered. Never in New York could a lawless mob have so triumphed over the law. Here, thank Heaven the conservative forces of society hold sway. Ilere, too, we leel special gratification in declar ing, ihe Caiholi" population have been educated into obedience to the law. Their own religious guaidians, such as Dr. Powers, who have labored airing them for years, have taught them to be good citizens, and their lessons of loyalty and rev erence for the institutions of this land, have been the antidote to the poisonous teachings of Bishop Hughes. The Catholics of New York, as a body are as much distinguished for all that entitles man to American citizenship, as any other class in the community. They are peaceful, orderly, industri ous and loyal. Had they not been so, the injudi cious and mischievous conduct of Bishop Hughes would have been more dangerous. We have not space just now for much additional remark on this most -ainful subject. We cannot close, however, without condemning in the strongest manner the cond?ct of the Catholic priest, who, by giving publicity to an anonymous note, applied the match to this fresh conflagration. His prudence and sagacity appear very much on a par with -those of Bishop Hughes. How these things may end in Philadelphia we know not. ft is exceedingly painful to contemplate the future. Formidable Tyler Movement.?A great deal ot effort ib |at present in progreas by some of the prominent Tyler men in this city, Redwood Fish er, George D. Strong, and Colonel Graham, and others, for the purpose of starting a new Tyler pa per, to be conducted with all the energy, patriot ism, intelligence, and high character, of which the names of the distinguished men just mentioned, afford such strong, unexceptionable, and encourag ing guarantee. The first move was to buy up the " Wall street Reporter," which has for some time j been very warm in the advocacy of John Tyler's i claims, but the proprietor of that concern, although | entertaining the most profound respect for the firm , ot Fisher & Co., chose to work on his own hook, | and go to the death fot the Captain, single-handed | and alone, with Curtius-like devotion. Then it I was proposed to buy the " Aurora," but certain ob stacles being in the way there, the next movement was to form a coalition with Chevalier Wikoff. This was eagerly jumped at by all parties, the ! identity in many respects of the position of the Chevalier with that of the Captain, presenting strong ground of coalition, which would also en i sure the efficient aid of the "waiters of Long's ' Hotel." Tnus stood this important business yes terday. We refer, however, for the latest intelli gence, to our bulletin in another column. Candidates for Governor.?According to all appearances the Whigs will nominate Mr. Fillmore as their candidate for Governor, and we see indi cations tolerably significant, that the Democrats will nominate Silas Wright as their candidate for the same distinguished office. Wa rejoice in these indications, for both the men whom we have named, are eminently fitted for the office. Purer, or better men than they, cannot be found, and each is a recognized and sound representative ol the principles of his party. Silas Wright is a man of great talent, moderation, patriotism, and practi cal good sense. Mr. Fillmore, although not so popularly known, is his equal in talent and reputa tion, and would make an squally good Governor? on Whig principles. Italian Opera?There was a vsry elegant house here last night, but not so crowded as we de sired to see, and as the character sf the entertain uient deserved. Madame Cinti sang with sur. pas-ing sweetness, and the other parts were sus tained in better style than on the previous nights. We trust to see a splendid and crowded houae 011 Wednesday night, when Madame Ginti hide ui farewell Thk Nkw Collector?I.atkht Accounts prom I the Ttlee Camp.?Governor Van Nhss, our new , and popular Collector, took, his seat yesterday in the great chair. In culling at his office 10 congra tulate him on his accession to the oflice, the door- \ keeper pouted you to the following NOTICE Is hereby givon, that uo application* for offise* hi the Cuitom Rouse will be attended to by the Collector du ring tha prevent week. All application* of that kind muit be made in writing, and may be left at the private oflice of Mr. Van New, at No. 4S William street, where he will, neat week, atford an opportunity for personal interviews to such as may desire it. July 8, 1844. This looks like business. The tact is. Governor Van Ness is a business mau, and thoroughly ac quainted, not only with the duties of the office, but wiih all the heterogenioua and discordant cliques of oflioe beggars, who ere now thronging, lying, and intriguing about him Never was seen so much intriguing in Wall street as there was yes terday, and will be ali through this week. All manner of deceptions will be pruct:sed ; all man ner of fraud and chicanery got up to deceive both the Collector and every body else. The whole street, and particularly in the neighborhood of the Custom House, actually smells of brimstone. There were new issues of lies, which perfectly | astonished his Satanic majesty himself. Mr. Curtis and Governor Van Nese were seen it friendly f#fe a-tite?Mr. Curtis evidently desiring to j render every explanation and facility which were necessary, in a manner honorable to himself, and courteous to hiB successor. Among the first acts of the new incumbent, were j the appointments of Cornelius S. Bogardus, As sistant Collector, in the plaee of Isaac 8. Hone ; | and Charles W. Van Ness, (nephew of the Go vernor,) Cashier, in the place of George C. Sat terlee. There are some most curious and extraordinary movements on the tapis, which we shall be prepar ed to show up in a few days. It is enough to say now, that the great Tyler party, per u is split into two parts?the one of which is in favor of the Union, the amalgamation, the nuptials of Polk and Tyler, while the other is opposed to the said nup tials, and is in favor of Mr. Tyler's running for the Presidency at any rate. All Tyler's friends are now taking sides in these two cliques, according to their respective interests. The Aurora havins tone for the nuptials, is to be transferred to other lands. Postmaster Graham, Redmond Fisher, Delazon Smith & Co. go most decidedly the anti-nuptial ticket. Derry and Eddy go the amal tarnation. Take it altogether, it is a most curious. Funny, extraordinary, and philosophical state ol things. There are other matters concocting which are not ready yst to be dished up. Delazon Smith's great Tyler meeting, which wai to have been last evening in the Park, is postponed Mr. Smith has been headed ofi by the movements | &f the Central State Tyler Committee, who havi taken the matter in hand, with the intention of ielling out the whole Tyler party to the highes bidder. These are great times, and this is decided-1 ly the greatest country, and John Tyler's the great est government on this side of the Atlantic. Three o'clock, P. M. We have just given the intelligence up to this- ] hour. Things look very stormy. A meeting of all the elements is to take place in an hour. A terri ble squall is anticipated. Fou* o'clock, P. M. The elements have met. Eddy and Derry are satisfied. Redwood Fisher is savage. Delazon Smith is shouting and yelling fearfully. Graham is as smiling as usual, and agreea with everybody It is very doubtful whether Mr. Tyler will be run for the Presidency, as the amalgamation party are carrying it with a strong hand. Intense excitement. Five o'clock, P. M. Gin slings have been ordered for the company Terrific excitement. The probability new is thai ? he President will he mn BRnin Colonel Graham is attempting to sing. The result exceedingly doubtful. Srx o'clock, P. M. The excitement continues unnhated. The amal jamation party hav.e regained the ascendency, and it is exceedingly unlikely that the Captain will run again. Sevbn o'clock, P. M. Another change. The Captain is certain to be run again. The scene is rather less stormy Brandy smashers are ordered. Still Latbr?Most Important. Eight o'clock, P. M. A scene of unexampled confusion. It is impos sible that the Captain can be run. His resignation is certain. Latxst Accounts?Highly Important. Nini o'clock, P. M. Two shillings worth of cigars are ordered. Col. Graham has announced that he thinks it is near supper time. Still Later. Half-past Nine o'clock, P. M. A great revolution. Mr. Tyler will be run as s candidate for the Presidency. This is finally set tled. Ten o'clock, P. M. Brandy smashers are ordered. Another scene o intense excitement. It is now irrevocably deter mined that Mr. Tyler rannof be run, and the State Central Committee officially give permission to any body to get as much of the spoils as they can till the -Ith of March next. More brandy smashers are ordered. Vkry Important. Eleven o'clock, P. M. Mr. Tyler does not run for the Presidency. His friends are decidedly ot opinion that it is "no go." The Committee talk of Adjourning. Latest Intelligence. Midnight. All is again confusion. Terrible excitement! The result it is altogether impossible to foresee, and John Tyler's position is precisely what it was at three o'clock. Health op the City.?New York has always been pre-eminent amongst the citied*of thir conti nent for its healthy location, and freedom from epidemic disease. This season it is remarkably healthy. The physicians enjoy a perfect vacation, and it is very seldom indeed that the " doctor's wagon" is seen in our streets. The location of this city is peculiarly favorable lor its salubrity. Built on a dry and elevated scil, and washed by two noble rivers, with the health tul breezes of the ocean sweeping over it, disper sing all noxious effluvia, and with an equable and salubrious climate, New York is, so far as the all important subject of health is concerned, by far the most preferable place of residence on this continent. The only thing which mili tates against the public health here, ia the filthy condition in which the streets have been generally kept. When the city was but scan tily supplied with water, there was some shadow of excuse for this neglect on the part of the author ities, but now it is intolerable. All the gutters should at this season be thoroughly washed every night. The abominable practice, so universally prevalent, of throwing all Boris of garbage and re fuse Irom the kitchens into the streets, renders this nightly washing absolutely indispensable. The rapid decomposition of this offal and vegetable matter, very speedily generates the most noxious gasses, and we would earnestly impress on the Corporation the duty of having the streets tho roughly and regularly washed. Another Musioal WnrtniR.?Meyer, the cele brated pianist, is on his way to this country. He is on the piano what Ole Bull is on the violin, and is destined to create a wonderful sensation here. Lislz ia not coming. He has unfortnnately been laboring under severe indisposition, which hat obliged hun to give up the idea of visiting us this year. Thk Season at Saratoga.?They appear to be in the full tide of enjoyment at Saratoga. The cod-fuh uyatocracy, und the sixpenny aristocracy, and the penny aristocracy, are daily arriving in large numbers, and the game at the " Lake House," and the scandal at the "United States," are equally high seasoned, and enjoyed with equal gout. Ole Bull has arrived at ths Springs, and will j spend a few days in that delightful vi'lage of foun tains, mosquitoes, sand and gin-slings, previous to his tour in Canada. We notice also the arrival of a number of the Smiths, Thompsons, aud Jack sons, of New York, Boston, and Baltimore. The United States' Hotel, Congress Hall, and Union Hall, appear to bag the game in tolerably fair pro portions, and at the minor houses it would seem from the list of arrivals, they are sleeping three in abed, and that the work of " colonization"is pros

pering in the hay lofts and other distant territories. The most am.'sing topic oi discussion and ex citement at the Springs, just now, is the quarrel between the highly respectable and important per sonages who publish things called newspapers m that village of bubbling celebrity. The relative value of the pretensions of these gentlemen to the exclusive right and title of levying black mail in the hotels, is the subject of the controversy, which is conducted in a manner extremely characteristic of the worthy combatants, and is, of course, mott excruciatingly funny. Gin slings and brandy cock tails are the subject of the fight, and the articles smell of gin slings and brandy cocktails all over. The right to levy on Mr. Munger, of Congress Hall, is the especial point at issue just now, and it his master-spirit, Reynolds, late of this city, be the dispenser of the gin slings and brandy cocktails, they are certainly worth fighting about by such su perlative judges of the article as the worthies of the Saratoga press. In the meantime, whilst this most laugha ble of all laughable newspaper controversies is raging, the usual entertainments of the "Springs" are kept up, as the Chevalier Wikoff said he kept up his quarrel with the adorable Fan ny, " with gr at vigor" The fountains bub ble up as usual, cool and refreshing, in the morning, and the watere are drank as usual by the gallon, by pale-faced maidens, and stout old gen tlemen, with noses, like the Philadelphia mob, threatening a conflagration. Loafers tipple at the bar, and ladies perspire itw the third and fourth stories all the forenoon, just as in the years that ate gone. Character is chopped up at dinner?scandal poured out with the tea?and hearts lost and wen in the quiet moonlight, as of old. Everybody L happy of course. The villagers lift up their eyet and behold the fields already ripe for the sickle, and they are very busy preparing for the harvest. Pork by the barrel, and codfish by the pound, are offered at Bushnell's. Root and Martin affection ately exhort the visiters?" don't die of starvation J and offer them hallibut at six cents a pound. Fisf has any quantity of the " Siberian Cerate, or uni versal family salve," which cures everything but * bad temper, and Huling offers pills which will cleanse anything but the tongue of Mr. McConnell. Thus goes it at gay, bustling, lively, bubbling, sultry Saratoga. Here meet the grave and the gav ?the saint and the sinner?the thoughtful and tht reckless?the man and the animal?-vanity, preten sion, profligacy, sobriety, sense, wisdom and folly, mix and mingle?and around the sparkling foun tains of health and purity, sweeps, morning, noon and night, in dark and solemn contrast, the turbic' tide of the life of this world! Celebrations of the Fourth?This day it ap pears by all accounts was honored everywhere with high spirit and more than common enthusiasm. In Richmond, the military parade was the finesi that had ever been seen thete. The Virginia anc Norfolk Guards visited that place; splendid dinnert were given, medals presented, and an oration b> T. C. Reynolds. In Rochester, the day was characterized by the utmost regularity?the festivities were carried oi on temperance principles, which acoounu for th< great absence of all that could in the least mar th< peace and pleasure of the celebration. The Philadelphia celebration was on a scale ol great magnitude. Five or six columns of some ol the newspapers are taken up with the accounts ol displays, cavalcades, devices, fireworks, and all that. It is, indeed, wonderful that the day passed over, in that excitable place, without bloodshed ; and it was truly honorable to the day to forget their quarrels and get rid of the bad feeling. With the exception of a couple of fires, which were soon extinguished, the proceedings in Buffalo were not lesa|brilliant. The Germans had intended to have a procession of their own, but at the sug gestion of friends they gave it up, and joined with the mats, wisely ooncluding that such distinctions were not safe in Buffalo more tlkn in Philadelphia There were numerous excursions on the lake,which I were largely attended. A chowder party was given, at which a collection cf 300 dollars was made in aid of the Orphan Asylum. The Ladies of the Anti-Slavery Society opened a fair for two days; the receipts amounted to CO dollars a day; and lastly, the repealers held a meeting, at which I resolutions were passed, from which the sense ol the assembly could be collected?but no money. On the evening, fireworks of great power and bril liancy lent their aid, and several other revelries, too numerous to mention, were in requisition. There were several accidents; but none of a serious nature, except the case of a man who hail his arm severed fiom his body, by the accidental discharge of a cannon. The weather at Charleston at first seemed threatening, but it afterwards became propitious for the rejoicings of the day. The military were under the command of General Cruikshank, and made a most imposing appearance. The patriotic societies and fire companies turned out?a temper ance meeting was held in the evening at the New Theatre, and a procession of the Sunday school children formed a most pleasing feature on tfie festive occasion From every quarter the accounts are extremely gratifying. More patriotism was never exhibited, and what la scarcely less pleasing, a marked dimi nution of inebriety, and excess of all kinds, was observable, and as a natural consequence, fewer casualties took place than on any similar occasion. This is as it should be?this is the true way to honor the memories of the glorious dead?to con secrate the associations of the olden time to temperance, soberness of thought, and vigor in action. This becomes a great republic far better than an exuberance of hilarity, which, although originating in high impulses and the best of mo tives, not unfrequently assumes a character of licen tiousness, not only disgraceful but dangerous. The Mexican Steamer GtiADALom?K.?A great crowd of people were present yesterday morning at the foot of Pike street to witness the raising of the Guadaloupe into the Sectional Pry Dock. The operation waa commenced about half past ten, and finished easily in two hours. The machinery of the dock operated to perfection, and the war steamer now sits high and dry in the dock, like a biid upon a branch. The bottom of the vessel was a sight to look at, and a very curious one, too; so covered with bar nacles, clams, and all manner of shell fish, worms, and sea weed, ever named or thought of on a ?maHseale. The Guadaloupe has been in the water about three years. It is expected that about #80,000 will ba expended upon her, much to the gratification of our ship chandlers, mechanics, and others.

The house was closed on the morning of the entrance of the accused, but ao force being used that was apparent, and there being a doubt in the minds of the jury ai to the precise manner in which the accused had entered the premises, they returned a verdict of not guilty. He was tnen lemanded for trial on another charge of burglary. PUa of Guilty.?Daniel Roach, alias Nathan Rhodes, in dicted lor burglary in the first degree, in entering the dwelling house ol Henry Vandtfrvoort, Clerk of the See ?ions, entered a plea of guilty, aad was remanded for sentence.

Russell and David Graham, Esq* counsel for prisoner, entered a piea of " puis darrien continuance," which in common parlance is an exception to the trial being called up on the ground that the return of proceedings under the Dill of exceptions before the Su preme'Court, iu the former trial, has not been made to.this court in a legal manner. The court decided that the plea wss admissible, and the District Attorney stated that he should be prepared to an swer to the plea on Tuesday morning.

Beacon Course, Hobokkn, June 8, 1844.? Iu addition to the ueual sports on this course, the gieat equestrian Herr Otto Motty, displayed his wonderful feats, and to those who have not wit nessed them, w? can only say that they are such as not every day present themselves before our no tice. A few days since we gave the particulars of them, therefore, on this occasion, we need not re peat it, only to say that if any thing he excelled his previous performances. On this occasion, in his first start, riding on two naked! horses, when near the bottom ol the course he fell, and there was some delay in returning to start again. In the meanwhile there was a dispute among the betters, who had wagered that he would not ride round on the two horses in two minutes, ten seconds, and they claimed their money in consequence ol his accident; but the more honorable conteuded there was no limit to the start, and that i! the rider conld do it within reasonable time, he ought to he allowed as many starts as in other trotting match es or racing. 1 his was acknowledged by the most respectable as only reasonable, and it was only the quibblers that refused to consent, and we are happy to say they were but few in number, and not the most respectable of those who attended this course. Otto in a short time afterwards was pre pared to start again, and it was even against niin performing the distance on the two horses in two minutes 10 seconds ; however,he went lorth in most gallant style, but near the bottom again his nags were inclined to run away with him, but with some little struggle th'-y were restrained, and he weni round in tne most beautiful style, in about 2 min utes8 seconds, amid considerable applause. The lider then went through his other wonderful per formances with like eclat. After this there was a pacing match for $500 be tween Mr. Oreen's m. Fanny Green, IWhelan?white jacket and Mack cap. The pacing horae John C. Calhoun, J. Whelpley?white jacket and black cap. Both animals appeared in first rate trim, with the exception of the horse being in boots, but it booted little as regarded the betting; it was at first 10 to 8 on him with numerous takers; it was afterwards reduced to seven, and eventually settled at 10 to f> on him, at which figure considerable business wae done, nothing better having to he had The bet ting was most spirited, and considerable sums must have changed hands. (HAhout the second or third attempt, they went forth the mare on the inside with the horse in close attendance. When near the bottom the latter broke, and it was sometime before he whs got in again, and although he struggled hard, it look- d very like a distance for him, but ingoing round he somewhat recovered and came in about 12 or 15 lengths behind, Fanny winning the heat in 2 min utes 34 seconds. Notwithstanding the failures of the previous heat, the horse was still the favorite even now at one hundred to fitly, on the next heat, which was taken. They went forth much as before, and near the bottom a similar mis fortune hefel the horse, but he was not so long in recovering, but all up the back stretch the marr find all her own way, taking it easy, the horse laboring hard in the meanwhile to recover lost ground, which he did so towurds and round the top At the distance a beautiful struggle took plsce?the whip was bountifully supplied to John C. Calhoun, and he answered better than ever a nigger done yet, but it was not effectual. He wss only about a length behind at the judges' chair. The heat was completed in 2 minutes 81 seconds, Fanny Green winning the match. Outraoks in Canada ?The Montreal Herald of Thursday contains accounts of no less than three outrage*.

Further Particulars or the Death or Joe Smith.?Yesterday's mail gave us a lew more par ticulars of the death of Joe and lliram Smith. It ippearo that Richards also, was killed. "It appears that Joe and Hiram Smith, and ? number of jtherMormon leaders were in jail at Carthage. confined on certain offences against the laws of the^tato 1 he Carthage Greys, a volunteer company, were placed as a ?uard aroundtthe jail About ? o'clock, on the evening if the 'J7th an attempt was made by the Mormons ee the jutside to rescue the prisoners from the custody ot the is aupiiosed, mortally, four ofthe old citizen* et Henceck.

Joe had seven or eight buUet holes in him. The murderers were unknown. The dead bodies were taken to Nauveo. This is authentio Later.?The Cincinnati Gazette of the 4th inst. gives the following vertion of the death of Joe Smith:? * The reports about the Mormons, and the death o( Jo# Smith andhis brother are various and contradictory.

We give this as we receive it without being able to vouch ior its correctness. We shall probably get at the truth In a day or two. The River?The Vicksburg Constitutionalist of Saturday, the 29th ult. says:?The work of de vastation, destruction, and ruin continues ; the water is rising more thnn one inch every twenty-four hours at this place. On Monday and Tuesday last near y one thousand hands were employed on the ltvee at Millikin s Bend, about twenty miles above us, " cr?*?"".,, {"! checked, and, il permanent, thousands of acres will be saved. The loss of stock, particularly cattle, is truly la mentable. Fer many days they have been collecting in large numbers on the ridges, near the numerous bayous, where they were enabled to find a little food, those ridges are now generally under water ; and, a gentleman from Richmond, La. (about twenty miles west of this city) in formed us that nearly five hundred cattle could b? ?een ?t one view, dead, the water on thur last place of re fug? being trom twelve to twenty-four inches deep . and at Krlie Unassured us that the number efcaUlelost would not be less than one hundred thetuwd-inWl the submerged country, we cannot possibly form sn ides of the .Xtrntof tho loss.

This deluge will have a most serious effect on the value of our river lands, and many of our enterprising planters will never again tnist their labors to the whims and freaks of the mighty waters." Accident at Utica.?We learn by Pomeroy ? Express, that a serious accident occurred at Utica on the Fourth. One of Judge Beerisley's sons, a member ofthe Utica Citlxens' Corps, hod his arm blown o? by a premature discharge of a field piece, while firing the even) ing salute. Another young man whose name we could not ascertain, was seriously injured. The recovery of both is eoDsidered quite doubtful. Amusements. Niblo's Garden.?The grand romantic ballet of the Revolt of the Harem ,made a moet decided hit last night, and will draw thousands or parsons to Publo s Garden, and thousands of dollars into the treasury. It is really the most splendid ballet evar attempted here, and with the very talented troupe of artiste engaged, could not fail to create a great sensation. Then it is got up in the moat gorgeous and effective style?new sceucry, new dresses, new armor, new weapons, and in short every thing new. Desjardins dsneed delightfully?splendidly; and in the absence of Fanny Elssler, reigns supreme Queen of the dance. Martin is ais-. undoubtedly at the bead of his profession in this country; and Korponay.tlie exiled Bohemian, imported to Myssouf a high degree or humor. The Misses Valine also performed a variety of dances admirably, and drew down enthusiastic plaudits. The audience was most fashionable, and fairly divided the title with Cinti Damoreau at tha opera. We observed more than one of the European Consuls apsong the auei tora, and many of the first fsmilies and distinguished strangers This ballet will doubtless prove a most sue. cesiiul and popular affair for Niblo and Mite hail, and add to their already well filled coffers; and they wsll deserve tha success that attends their liberal outlay and splendid management Although we have heard a whisper ot the forth coming novelty at the Castle Garden, yet we can? not hot regret that this should be the last night of tho truly splondid performances of the French and Spanish Troupes.
