NEW YORK HERALD. New Tori , kui.ilay, July Ml, 1M4. Public Opinion on the Philadelphia Riots? The Remedy. Public opiaion on the csu-es of the Philadelphia riots and the mode of preventing their recurrence, is beginning to exhibit a sound and healthy condi tion 7 he violent excitement of the moment, which had for the time, blinded even many oi the wist and good, has subsided, and sober reflection is producing its salutary results. A most impres sive le-sou, has indeed, been taught the friends of peace and older by these sad events, and in the evidences which we now see on all hands of re turning common sense, and practical wisdom, we find in tch to soften the painful impressions pro d iced by the disgraceful outbreaks, which for a brief period threatened the advent of wide spread anarchy and disorder. One of the most interesting and rurious opinions which we have seen expressed by the parly press on this subject, is that of the Globe. It ascribes to the old 3pirit in Pennsylvania, which sought, at a not v?ry remote day, to compel by mob violence, compliance with the demand of a corrupt moneyed cor|M>ration, the crea'ion of that disregard of law and order which burst forh in all the fury of a bbiod-ih.rsiy populace in the late riota. And the Globe is not altogether wrong in this opiuion. We have indeed ourselves not many days since iusiated, that to the diseased state of public sentiment in Pennsylvania, produced by the demoralizing con duct of the legislaiure, is to be traced the origin, in a great measure, of these riots. An anonymous writer in the Philadelphia Gazette,in a long article, characterized by great good sense, and menly spirit, makes som-exc. lletit remarks on this point?the necessity of the infusion of correct moral principle into public opinion, in ord-r to maintain the supre macy of lh? laws?and which we regard as emi nently worthy of attention. He says: ? The true remeily ji the formation of a correct nnil toiin I, in*i.S'l ol the narrow niimlerl anil ignorant public opinion now -xiating. That ? the great ? vil ami aourrv 01 lUuger?a blin I erronemi* public opinion.w hich can i the ilreailftll const ipiences of ati ah union nit ol principb ; which looks to the exiwJienc.y of the present n >nr forgetful of the past an<l future; which i? blown ah tut t>v --very gust of passion, every zephyr of ronve Xiience; which has no standard of right, no rule of action; which lor th>* sake of present oa?c, is willing to j ieltl a little, wtu.h, lor the sake of a favori'e object abandons a cons-rrt ive principle and suspendi the authority otlaw; this is the fatal sickness of the time Mob la v and reli gi his persecution aimed insurrection, blood-hedi the open streets, tintvenal termr. and the ex.s'ence of so ciety endangered, these are the hitter Irrtitt ol otiretrors ol our ignorance and blindness, of pin king from " curbed license" the " muzzle of restraint," to grattiy ihe pa-sion. ofrhe moment We frid now that the return 10 order is difficult, and that once lei lose ? ' the wild dog Shall flesh bis tooth iu < very innocent." Had public sentiment heretofore been sound, had all classes called for th* maintenance of law. whether they sympathized wi h the onjec's of the hreaher* of law or not ?had the a Iministrntion of criminal justice been strict and impartial, we should n >t have snfl'ired from the con stant riots of the last Ave or six years. We should not now see a moh planting cannon against churches, and appearing in armed rebellion to legal authority. And now that the results of long misrule Are obvious to oil eyes, let all men be convinced that the period for thorough reform or fur that horrible anarchy which precedes revo lu'ion. has arrived. I.e' us resolve that order shall be re?*ored and preserved, that law shall be maintained and executed, that privite right shall he protected, and that those who have committed these outrages shall be punish e.1 Thay have forfeited their lives to society, and socie ty sho'ill d *ina id the pensl'y.

Philadelphia are over. Busi n-ss Will liaveit; capital will fly for legal protection to han ner places ; every man who cin. will abandon u spot given over to the spirit ol discord and violence, and in a few years, those who remain will see its streets deserted ?i's wliiives without a mast, aud gross growing at the Market House and Exchange. Tins is plain speaking, and it is the iruth. I'hila. delphitt ought 11 be warned in Its ruin is in evitable, if measures be not at once adopted to pre. serve society ihere Irom the demoralizing and dis organizing influence of the elements of disorder an I violence which have leen created there, and have been allowed to grow up into a atreng'h which tset effectually at defiant e all the present existing cafe-guard* of the public peucc and safety. And how can this mobocracy he put down? How can th xt beautiful city be preserved in futcre from such ec ties of disgrace and bloodshed ? Tl. re is only one remedy. The ciiygovernment must at once be re-orga.iized. The whole of it disiricis must he placed under one municipal autho rity; and the men uppointed to administer the new government, must be men oi putiiy, of moral prin ciple, of integrity?faithful, honest, brave, and just rue .. Tnie is what Philadelphia wants. Let the present absurd system of sectional government, be abolished Let all the corrupt, miserable, partizan le iders who hold olfice?and ihe'iuiq litous condui t of some of whom, in exciting the passions of the inob, we have had melancholy evidence? be cast out ol ihe places they have disgraced. This is the only practical, common sense movement, which can preserve ihe future peace and prosperityof Phila delphia; and we are glad to perceive that a convic tion of th ? correctness of this opinion, begin* to prevail in that city. Thr Gazette comes out man fully, and calls loudly for this reform in the city government. Ii will not long stand alone in this Kvery patriotic and sensible citizen must come to its aid, and we do not despair of seeing before long the only remedy adapted to the case, applied. FkathkrstonhaUqh.?The Evening Tranncript of Boston, flunks that there is a good deal ol truth in Feitherstonhaugir* descriptions of the comloris of travelling in the United Stales. Our little co tempory is quite right, und it would not be amiss lor those concerned, to profit by the criticisms of the peevish Mr. Feaiherstonaugh.

Several announcements appear in the newspapers, that many wonderfully instructive dis course* are to be delivered to-day iu thiacity. We are to have lectures on the Prophecies; preaching on the near approach of the Second Advent ot Christ; service in the open air, corner of Greenwich street and 7'h Avenue, on subjects as spacious and ex tended as the open cir teiop'e; whilst another no tice informs sinners in general, that at Military Hill, B >wery, at 3 and 7fc o'clock, P. M , there will be " religious excitement" by a lemale mem ber ; also, a pleasant excursion in pursuit of the ten tribes, and a treuti_e on the why and wherefore of Satan's being let loose on the earth for 1,000 years. It is only lair to stale that seats are offered free, 4< without money and without price." On these terms it is not too much to expect jhat there will be a fair share of patronage extended to these lau dable efforts to evangelize the whole world. Shctionai. Dby Dock.?The Mexican steamer Uaudaloupe, was on Thursday lowered from this admirable dock in about twenty minutes; and the Montezuma, a much larger class vessel, weighing 1600 tous, was then pi ced over the dock, and raised in about two and a half hours, with as much ea?e and safety us the smallest class vessel could nave been. We understand that strenuous efforts were made by certain officers of the navy that we could name, and others, to induce the Mexican Commodore to go to the Charles too stone dock, for the purpose of getting dock ed, by representing that the vessel would pro bably he injured if placed upon the sectional dork ; but upon the assurance of our experienced ship builders, Messrs. Bell 3c Brown, and others, that the dock was perfectly safe, and that no inju y could occur to any ship placed upon it, he was in duced to remain and repair in thia harbor, thus -ecuring to our mechanics and citizens the benefit of the large amount ot outlay for their repairs, which had it not been lor this dock would have gone to Boston. No other motive but jealousy of the growing reputation of this dock, could have induced this advice, and the base attempt to injure this merito rious dock, should and will be frowned upon by the community. It is presumed that no one will now have the hardihood to assert, that a safer or more conve nient dock, could be found in this or any other country, for the repair of these steamers. Musical Mania in Canada.?Ole Bull is setting loose the flood-gates of enthusiasm in I anada, just as he did in New England and New Yotk. Ilis first concert at Quebec was a scene ol splendid tri umph. One of the papers there thus expresses the feeling awakened:? Ole Bull's Concert ?Thus we commence?but how shall wg continue 1 We challenge contradiction when we state that so perfect a violinist has never before visited our city. Wc ai rived too late to bear his first piece ; hut (he second, " The Quartern," was the most magnificent piece of exertion we ever heard He was, of himself, an orchestra complete.

We ha'*e received by yesterday'* mail advicea from Toronto of the 17th instant According to these advices the pnucipal cities of Canada, although filled with British troops always on duty, aie the scenes of riot* and tumultuous mobs. It is here observed that law is set at defiance by ] the provincials. fTrom Toronto Rxunlner, July 17.] On the 12th instant our city was disgraced with one of those foolish exhibitions of purtyhoslility ?an Orange Procession, with music ana banners, parudtng our principal streets in op n day, directly in the teeth of the law of last session concerning "Party Processions." We are pleased to have to record, in connection with this, that some of the magistrates of the City, particularly Alderman Gtir nett, manifested a becoming determination to se cure respect for the law, ana to bring its violators to justice. We are informed that the Proclama tion required by the act was read, but being disre garded, an effort was made to arrest some of the leaders, ruriug which Alderman G. and others of the magistrates were assaulted and "shamefully handled." Wnh the aid ol the constabulary force, however, from twelve to eighteen ol the party I were arrested and longed in gaol, some of whom were subsequently bailed out by Mr. Aldeiman Boulton, and on their being brought up next day for examination, we are told so many of their Orange friends attended the Police Court, and threats having been held out of personal violence to the sitting magis trates, the Court was overawed.'and the prisoners had to be remanded to giol, unul arrangements should be made to guard the authorities in the ex ercise ol theit duties The subsequent examina tions resulted in the binding over of about 14 or 15 persons to take their trial at the next assizes. Another Orange demonstration took place on the same day, under different circumstances, and which had well nigh resulted iu a bloody tragedy. A large parly, numbering we are told about 100 per sons, male and female, proceeded across the lak hi the morning on board ihe steamer "Admiral," on a trip to the Falls of Niagara, accompanied we are informed by a considerable number if not the whole of the temperance bin J with their Mu sical instruments ; a circumstance which every consistent member of the Temperance Society can not but regard as a seeming compromise ol prin ciple, and a perversion of trie object for which it was established. The Temperance Reformation aims to unite all parties in one common cause: this identification of one of its instrumentalities j with a pa-iv, must prove injurious. Unless this act be disallowed by its leaders, and a publ c reso lution be made to prevent its recurrence, the misno mer of "the Temjierance Band" should be chang ed for another of an appropriate character. The intention of the Orangemen had for some time ore viously been publicly announced, and a dinner had been engaged in one of the hotels at the Falls, on the British side. It was generally known that a short lime ago some thousands ol laborers, at the Wetland canal, had struck for an advance of wages, aurl were then unemployed. Rumors were abroad that trouble might be txpected, and the Orange party determined to prepare themselves for the worst; and,we are informed, went with abundance of weapons of defence. Indeed, throughout the nuhi previous, the inhabiiants ol this cuy were greatly disturbed by the noise of parties, apparent-1 ly arriving trom the country, and by frequent dis charges of firearms. The morning was very fa vorable for the excursion, arid the day might have been spent delightfully, but for the fierce passions of the human breast, which have of late been roused on one side by the countenance given by our Colonial Government to Orangeism, on the oue hand ; and the galling remembrance of the wan ton insults heaped upon the Catholics, by Orange processions, on the other. On arriving at Queens ton, where parties leave the Bteamer, and take the railroad, the passengers learned that a large body ?f the Catholic laborers had come to the Falls, from St. Catharines and as far west as Bratitford. and were scattered in the woods all along the line of the route from Queenston. We are informed, that advice wiis given, that if they (the Orange parly) determined to go forward, their safely lay in leaving all their Orange badges, instruments ol music, and all offensive weapons behind them, otherwise a collision would take .place, and much blood would be shed. This ad' ice was, happily followed; for, on reaching the terminus of the rail road. about 1,500 Catholic laborers, armed with deadly weapons of various kinds, met them,and there . were j>erhaps as many scattered through the woods, | who it is said, would have cut every one of the party down, had there been the slightest manifes-1 ration of Orangeism. Some of the party remained at Queenston: others crossed and went up cn the American side, some hastily crossed below the Falls, and returned vi'i Lewi-tou; and a part of those who were gcir.g from Queenston did not go on to the Falls, but returned, with ali haste on foot, to thai village. Happily no violence of any mo ment was done on eiiher, but one of the plea sure (1) party declared, thut he had passed through many scenes of danger, and had been in many en gagements, but never, until that day, had death ap peared to him under so teniftc an aspect. The la borers were armed with muskets, bayonets, seythcB, reaping hooks, &o. &c , and but for the presence of'| a company of the Rifle corps, which had been pru dently sent up from Niagara to the Falls, and the perfect absence of any party insignia or language, the consequences would nave beeu a fearful riot and destruction of life. Our coteniporary of the Herald complains that none of the party had given him an ac> ount of the affair, but we are not surprised at the circumstance, lor the whole was humiliating in the extreme The Otange parly was completely in the power of ihe Oath-lice, and many ludicrous scenes might in such a case have been looked tor, and actually did occur, which we do not wi&h to record, as it would only tend to aggravate, instead of calming the dis- j turbed feelings of those interested. We condemn Catholic, a* well as Orange out rages. The laborers at the canal stand guilty of a violent breach of the peace, and their ringleaders I should, if known, be brought to justice. But no such acts of party violence would have happened had the government done its duty. Dreadful Steamboat Explosion at Rio.?The editor ol the Baltimore Patriot has been lavored with the tallowing ie'.ter, dated Rio de Janeiro, Msy 23,134-1. I hasten to inform v??u of a melancholy accident which happened in' this place on Saturday last This citv was thrown into great excitement on Sa turday last, by an occurrence which has clothed a large number of its inhabitants in mourning, and crea ed a gloom over the whole city. On the op posite side ol the harbor, and distant about four miles, is a village, which numbers about three thou sand inhabitants, and where a number of the most respected inhabitants reside, as being more retired than in the bustle of Kio. Two small steamboa s ply every huurduriug iheday betweeu the two pla ces, so that the number of pissengers is laige, es pecially upon holydnys fur recreation Saturday was one of these days, and at 4 o'clock in the ai lernoon about 300 passengersen ered ou hoard trniii the wharf of itie city, and the boat had just push ed from her moorings when the boiler buret with a most awful explosion. A friend o| mine, who war present, represents the scene as the inostheart rend ing that the imagination can conceive. The boa> was a complete wreck?and amidst the shrieks ol the wounded, the cries of the drowning, and the confusion of the moment, the most cal ous heau woulu have melted into tenderness. The mulilat ed remains were gathered as soon as possible, and removed to a neighboring hospital?some with the loss ol a limb-some dreadfully scalded; and upon numberiig them, it was found there were etgnty six wounded in the house beside those removed to private dwellings. Tnere were filiy-twoascertain ed to have been kilh d, and several persons are mis sing yet. Seven or eight have died since, and I am informed there areas many as twenty who are prom unced incurable, atfo will probably linger m umber of agony for several days. The number of wounded who are still living, as far as ascertained, is about sixty-five. This is the frst accident of the kind which has ever occurred here, and has caused great excitement. All places of public amusement were closed, and have not since been opened. Had the accident occurred one hour eailier, I should proba bly have been apared this narrative, and our fami ly circle reduced one in its number, as I am resid ing on the opposite side and passed over in the 3 o'clock boat. It will take some time for the .citi zens generally to recover from the shock?and many, v>-ry many families, will, for years, feel its awlul efl cts hi the deprivation of relatives and Ir ends. There is not. 1 believe, an American ci tizen among either the. killed or wounded, but seve ral Englishmen are. and two very respected citi z-us have not since been heard of yesterday one gentleman, a Brazilian officer, was picked up in the harbordreadlully mangled. I liuve, perhaps, said enough upon this melancholy topic. Visitors at Sahatooa ?

Active steps have been taken to increase the strength of the cas tle. Seme heavy pieces of new ordnance have been mounted, and a brig arrived from the United States a few days ago, laden with shells and other monitions As much ignorance seems to prevail at Vera Cruz aa here in regard to the movements and designs of France, but these measures of ilelence appear to have been taken against any sudden attack from that quarter In addition to a French lieutenant previously noticed, we see that the commander of a Spanish frigate had died wi'h the vonilo. The crews were suffering to some ex tent. The prisoners at Perotc are represented as in good health nut are treated wi'h increased rigor.

Pleasures of Sea Bathing?Long Branch?Bass Cape May, fyc fyc. Here we are, upon the shore of the blue Atlan tic, enjoying the health-inspiring breezes, that cheer the drooping spirits of the invalid, and give renewed strength and activity to the strong and healthful. Let the lovers of Sthooley's boast of the bracing air of the mountains, or the frequenters of Saratoga prate about the invigorating water of the springs, I envy them not their enjoyment, for " .Vy soul is athirat for a draught mora rare? A gush of the Iree pure ocean air;" that pure and wholesome air, that so " strings the nerve and purifies the blood." And then, too. the exhilirating effect of bathing in the boisterous surf? the freshness and vigor that braces the frame after a plunge in the cool sparkling wave of old Father Ocean?the quiet, placid spirit, that steals over a man after that bath is over, making him feel at peace with all the world, and ilmost wooing him to entire forgetfulness of all the troubles and trials | of his transitory state. These are pleasures that the frequenters of Saratoga and Schooley's dream not of. Fly, then, Mr. Editor, from the heated "brick and mortar" of your crowded city, vacate your editorial chair, and coine down and with us the otium cum dignitate of our temporary home, on the shore^of "The sea, the sea, the open sea, The blue, the fresh, the ever free." And be sure when you do come to etop at ti<e "Bath Buildings," the pleasantest, most conve nient, and best kept house, by all'odds, of any at ihe Branch. Green, the proprietor, is a Whole souled, kind-hearted fellow, studiously attentive to (he comfort of his guests, and most laudably am bitious in providing excellent cheer; indeed, as tar as my experience has I know of no watering place that can boast such a table as "mine host's." in this respect we have much the advan tage of that greatly lauded watering place, Cape May. There, unless you almost exhaust your ex chequer in securing the exclusive attentions ol Dick, Tom, or Sambo, you are half starved; and then have to pay the nice sunt of ten dollars h week, besides extras, for the privilege of being to ; .ind even if you do secure the services ol ihe above-mentioned gsnilemen, the chances are lento one that you get nothing fit for a christian to eat. There is no inconvenience of that kind here. The tables are plentifully supplied, servants are strictly attertive without bribery, and every thing is done that can make one's slay here in every way pleasant and agreeable. The opportunities for enjoyment are numerous fishing, sailing, nine pins,billiards, quoits,ttec dec., \ and all those sources of amusement common to every well regulated watering place. The fiahin* is peculiarly fine, and every clear morning, befon ?ireakfast, you may discern from the shore quite t. fleet of fishing boats anchored off opposite 'h? nouse, engaged in what is considered a regular bu -ines8 down here, catching the sesbass and black fish. A dollar is all that is necessaiy to entitle you 10 the privilege of a place in one of these boats, where you will find lines, bail, and all the riecesta rv requisites for your sport?and such sport as it is; | the trout fisher, and your dabbler in small sireatm knows nothing ol it. Just think of a bass or black fish of ten or eleven pounds at the end of youi line, struggling sa you draw him from his watery element, with a strength that hlmost resists youi utmost efforts This is the kind of fishing lor rue; fi.-hiug, which, like the "Egyptian darkness," e i he frit." 1 waul none of your insignificant nib tilings of contemptible minnows or eunfish, bu* give me in its stead, the good strong jerk a tic struggle of the bass, or black fish?this is fishing in earnest, the other is mere child's play. If you art no sailor, and your stomach has a horror of the rocking motion of the Atlantic wave, I will not premise you on your first fishing excursion, a great amount of enjoymeut, unless you can find it in that violent retching, that internal storm and tern pest in your entrails, which seasickness is sure to excite?the ruuicon however, passed, and you are Sife. Visiters are beginning to pour in, butas'yet we have had no distinguished arrivals, unless I except Gaptstn Stockton, who ishere recruiting his health una spirits. The gallant captain looks as well as I have ever seen him, and now since he has alinosi shaken off that "fell incubus, Tylerism," is fast being restored to a perfect stale of political health, I and activity, lie goes lh? entire figure for "Polk and Dallas," and is as sanguine now of their suc cess, us he was in 1840 of the triumph of old Tippe canoe. The. captain is a pretty good democrat, it you give him the full swiug of his own flail;he has his own notions about democracy, and with a sailor's independence he asserts them, whether his party think, with him or not; all the chain cables in New Jersey can't hold him if he chooses to leave1 them, and nothing can draw him back unless it is the "cords of h's own conviction."

Woodrufl's br. g. Columbus and Geo. Spicer'a b. g. Sir William. The former was ridden, in the first heat, by , in white jacket and black cap ?the latter by Mr. John Sptcer, in white jacket and blue cap. Columbus had the call as far as the betting went previous to the trot, but only at evens, and that to a very limited extent. Sir William was an un known horse?his capabilities had to be tested. He is a bright bay, good looking hone*, not so large as Columbus, but eviden ly capable of doing some thing pretty decent with pr?per tuition. At the start, Columbus had the lead on the out side near a length, and they went well round the bottom in this position, but as they approached the halt mile Sir William gained gradually upon him, and at the three-quarter lapped him, keeping a re gular pace throughout to the distance, when he made a break, and lost a length or two which he had gained previously, and Columbus came in about this much in advance, completing the fust mile in 2 minutes42 seconds. The Eecond mil<- was Very similar, and was completed in 2 minutes 48 seconds. Round the bottom and up the hack stretch in the third mile, Columbus showed strong symptoms of being done, and whennearthe three-quarter broke and lost considerable ground, so much so that it was generally expected tnat he would be shut out. Sir William then took it quite easy home, the other just saving his distance. The general opinion was, that if he hadrexeit-d himself he matter would have been settled this heat. The three miles were completed in 8 minutes 32 seconds. For the second heat Mr. Hiram Woodruff changed the saddle for the sulky, and took the rtb bonS himself He lead off, but when near the hot torn broke and Sir William went in front, but as approached the hall mile .hey were we up together, bni near the three quarters Sir William met n like miffortune and lost some three or lour lengths and Columbus came in the first "ile in Itwo ? inrtv five 8Pconds< Round tht* bottom lor She*cor!dmile! the quarter, Str William got Ins nose Close to the wheel of the sulky and kept i? so until shortly after pawing the three quar ters when Columbus broke but soon recovered, and Sir William went in Iront; from tins home th re whs a pretty good struggle and succeeded in com ing in about two lengths in advance in the iwme , time as the former mile. In rounding the botn m the third lime Columbus fell < ff, and lost a lengih or two; which the other maintained un to the three quarters; rounding the top Columbus clos< d the gap between him and his rival pretty {-on8'd*" rably.and coming down the straight course homefor the third ana last time, Hiram made a bold push, soaring neither whip nor lungs?his shouis to his nag might be heard all over the ground-hut it was of no avail, he was some two lengths be hind when SirWilliam came home, completing the ?econd 3 miles and winning thestakes in 8 minutes. i6 seconds. Again, Columbus, deceiving his most sanguine friends, ^"his horse may be a good one. but his good qualities appear to want a great deal to bring them out.
