NEW YORK HERALD. ??w York, Wednesday, duly Jl, 1*44. New* for Kurope. The steam ship Hibcnm, one of the tiaest of the mail steamers, leaves Boston to-morrow nooa for Liverpool. Her letter bags will close in this city this afternoon at 4| o'clock. As usual, therefore, we shall issue an Extra Herald at three o'clock, with the latest commercial, theatrical and po.ttical intelligence from all parts oi the American oontiuent. It will be ready 111 wrappers attwoceuis ? copy. Another Illustrated Weekly Herald. Oa Saturday next we shall publish another splen did edition of the IVttkly Htrald, illustrated w.tb engravings representing interesting scenes in the history of the Presidential candidates. We hate still on hand a few copies of the fourth and fifth editions of the two last numbers of the Illustrated IVttkly Herald?one containing the en gravings descriptive of the Philadelphia hots, and the other, illustrations of the Illinois murders, with some sketches of the political candidates. Those who may want them, will find them at the desk oi (hi* office. Clerical Culprit*. We fire on the first page ot our paper to-day, a copious report of the proceedings in the case ol the Rev. Mr Fairchild, a painful affair, which has occupied a great deal of public attention, particu larly in that section of the country where the par ties concerned are best known. Without desiring to make any special reference to this case, we are yet unwilling to allow the opportunity which its publicity affords, toescape,'without making a few Calm, and, we trust, not altogether unprofitable re marks on the subject of clerical delinquencies in general. It is a very melancholy fact that of late years the clerical profession in this country has been much dis graced by the conduct of many unworthy members A very great number of cases have come before the public, in which ministers of the goi-pel have figured as violators of a precept of ihe decalogue, on the strict observance of which, perhaps, more than that ot any other, d'pends the happiness and well-being of society. There is no necessity for | us to engage in the very disagreeable work of re ferring to particular cases, by way of refreshing the memory of our readers with auy of the uielau choly tacts on which the statement we have jus made is founded, ft is quite sufficient to know that the number of cases of this description lias | be i o great that an impression has been very generally made that the immorality of the clergy, I a body, is much more wide-spread and enormous | than it really is. It would not be easy to cxaggr-1 rate the evil and demoralizing influence which the conduct of these clerical culprits has exercised. In thousands of minds, pure and undefiled, religion has received a deadly blow?the thoughtless and profane have hem confirmed in their ruinous c reec?the hardened blasphemer of virtue has h d n w ma'erial wherewith to delude ott ers and his own soul?and the spirit of the really sincere and devoted Christian has been weighed down to the very dust with shame and sorrow. We have regretted to find that this matter has, | generally speaking, not been treated properly by the protessedly religious portions of the community. Attempt^ ttt concealment oi the existence of a more than ordinary degree of immorality amongst the clergy, are equally vain and pernicious. We have been assmled for directing attention to this evil, and doubtless, by many even of the honest and pure professors of religion, this article will be strong s reprob ited ; whilst, of course, it will receive th" full benefit of the anathemas of the hypocrites urn Pharisees! but we caunot be deterred Irom speak ing openly and plainly of this matter, so that the extent of the evil to which we direct public atten tion may lie fully known,?its causes investigated. ?aitd some remedy proposed and adopted It i Spurious zeal for religion which prompts a certain portion of the community of " believers" to err out against public exposure of the wolves n sheep's clothing,?the ministers,?who, by hyp. critical pretensions, get admission into the pu pits, which they disgrace. For genuine reli gion?for that practical belief tn the grem truths of Christianity, which discovers itself in ti t life and conversation,?none entertain more pro found reverence than we. Never has (ten of oui> written one syllable in derision of the simple but sublime doctrines of the Christian fanh,?nevt i have we uttered even what could be tortured into 11 dtcule of such of the clergy asdischsrged with puri.y and fidelity, the high and solemn duties of then office. It is true that we have again and agaiu dt nounced the corrupt, hypocritical Pharisaic prtetti of all creeds who prostitute their sacred office, and are living blasphemies upon the God they pretei d to serve. And in these denunciations we but follow the exalted example of the great apostle Paul bin - ?elf, who once addressed to one of this very cln s of corrupt hirelings, the terrible anathema, "G< d ?hall smite thee thou whited wall!" But to the t - delity, purity and usefulness ol the great mass < I the American clergy, we feel especial pleasure in beariug testimony. Many of them are, to be eur-, somewhat behind the spirit of the age?somewh t too intolerant and bigoted?but, taken as a bod>, they are zealous, active, and powerful instrumei t of the highest good. To the pious and diligei.i clergy of all denominations, America is under in calculable obligations The voluntary citurches o the Jnited States, with their badly paid, but labor ious pastors, are amongst the noble-t of the inetitn tions of tins country, and the very last against which any friend ol American liberty would dare to raise a hostile hand. And it is because we thus duly appreciate the value, the moral excellence, and us. - fulneaa of the great mass of American clergy, that w. would with a'l earnestness and sincerity dirrn their attention to the conduct of those culprits in their body, who ate Irom year to year, diagracin the r profession and dishonoring religion. How doea it happen that the most of those sat cases occur in those ecclesiastical bodies, ad rim ?ion within whose pale isaained chiefly, if not a together, by superior pretensions to holiness 1 It i a fct certainly worthy of notice, that the majority of clerical culprit*are met with in those church* whtch are most distinguished for noisy, bustling, ever-restleM seal?the churches which rusk* parade of the greatest number of convert* the churches where loud prayers in tin synagogue are moat in vogue?the churches who* member* make broad their phylacteries and en large the border* of their garments, to use the ex presatve >cripiure phraseology descriptive of th* canting hypocrites of Jerusalem. We think thi* aflord-i a clue which may materially aid us in th* invrsttgatt n ot the causes ot this evil, in then churches the period of study for the ministry is noi regular and is frequently very brief. All that n wanted is great zeal?a " great outpouring of the spirit ?and all that is much more easily acquirer than erudition and a high and established charac ter for purity of life. Iu this way many men, bel ter fitted for the penitentiary than the pulpit, ar* admitted to the holy ministry, and sooner or latei their true character is developed?the church die graced?and religion dishonored. Then, again, in the better regulated churches where the emoluments are greater and ol course more securely guarded, the work and office of th. ministry is in too many instances made ths sub ject of mere worldly speculation. Raw lads, wul little but decency aud dullness to recommend them and who may not be considered smart enough t< be taught a trade or to engage in the daily chest tag of the world, are devoted to the service of th* cnurcli, tliat so ihey may earna living. The rank. 'if mechanic* and schoolmasters, and broken-dowi. merchants, also, occasionally contribute recruit* l.< the cause of the ohurch militant, which fre p. -illy refieot bit little credit|on.tbeir new yocs i ought ic he among the cauw> of the introduction of improper characters into the ministry. In the church, as well as in the State, there are cliquei, and all the intriguing and trickery of cliquet, and one evil re sult is, that not unfrequenily men not qualified for the clerical office obtain admission. Our remarks on thisniatterhavc necessarily been cursory and brief. Hut we have said euough to lead the intelligent reader to the conclusion thai the fiequency oi cases of gross immorality amongst the clergy, does not at all present any ground tor the sculler or the blasphemer of true religion Laxity in the regulations for the admission o' can didates?the encouragement ot extravagant and ultra professions of piety?the mixing up of human error and excited and perverted feelings with the truths and practises of genuine Christianity?these have been the causes that have led to the degrada tion of the pulpit by the polluting presence of lying hypocritea and cantiug vagabonds. Let the moral character, the whole past life and conversation of candidates for the ministry be rigidly and properly investigated in all cases, and let practical purity instead of snuffling Pharisaism, be the test ol fitness for that holy office, and, depend upon it, we shall have fewer cases ol clerical delinquency. Cou.mna THE (/H1CKKNB BEFORE THEY ARE hatched ?There are now in this city six whig newspapeis?-including the recent pirouette oi Chevalier Wikoff? and all perfectly independent oi each other, eveiy one of them running ita own career ol decency and patriotism,without caring a straw for its neighbors in the race. Around each of these papers is a little clique of office-seekers who mean to latten on the spoils when Mr. Clay is elected, arid already we have quite ample means of formiug a tolerably accurate estimate of the liveliness and fuu oi the scramble which will take place in case of that Hiispicioua event. It hus been only with the greatest difficulty that i he Courier clique and the Tiibunt clique, dur eg 'he past year, have beeu able to keep the peace, or behave decently towards each oiher, even btfoie Mr. Clay was elected. Indeed the rival respect abilities hardly succeeded in this, and it was not to be expected by any body who knew them that they would. The Courier at all times finds it a difficult matter to keep in the atmosphere of decency, and when the stimulus of the rival clique oi the Tribune was applied to it, it was not at all wonderlul thai some ol its nice little touches of natural behavior should be manifested without any attempt at con cealment. Hut oace Mr. Clay is elected, what scenes we shall have! When the spoils are itn mediately in prospect?when the air will be redo ent with the savory odor of roast beef, and every breeze will bear provoking cards of invitation to he rich dishes of the new administration?when roast ducks will be Hying about, like those described by Benjamin Franklin, with lorkssticking in their plump sides and crying out?"Come eat me! come -at me !"?when that time comes, what aconfiict, what a scramble, what a rioting there will be be tween the Courier clique, and the Expreu clique, and the lYibune clique, and the Commercial clique, and?most vigorous, hungry snd thirsty of thein si ?the A'eur York American clique! It will be the most amusing scene imaginable. Even now, in 'he midst of the fight for victory, these knife-and fork politicians?these soap-fat patriots,are scratch ing each others' eyes out, and pour out every day quantities of abuse, slander, and vituperation, tar xceeding any thing to be found in tlie quarrels ol ihe courtezans in Paul de Kock, or of the pick pockets in Eugene Sue. Louisiana Election Auain.?The extraordinaty -tale me tits of the result of the Louisiana election, ?ub iuhed by the Journal of Commerce, giving a in-ijoruy ot live or six hundred for the Democratic icket in the recent election, has staggered a goon many?f tne Wings, and amongst litem, we pt r ?eive the philosopher of the Tribune, who is very nuch puzzled to know what to make of it. Atiei teating about the bushaud swaggeiingagreatdeul, and talking about a national convention, and tin Legislature and the Senate, and Whig candidates lected here and there, he at last admits that pn Dably th Journal of Commerce iB right, but lie is po -itively determined to disbelieve the statemem if the result being favorable to the Democratic ?arty until he gets further information coriobora ive of it from Louisiana. Certainly the result, as now stated, presents a ?ingular state ot things, and excites a great dual of interesting spuculation respecting the future. If :<t -uch a crisis the Democrats can carry the State by t majority of five hundred votes, we cannot see why hey cannot cany it with an equal if not a still arger majority in the fall. And if the Folk party can carry Louisiana now as Harrison did in 1840, oy a large majority, what reason is there to believe hat Polk is so very weak and Clay so very strong in the South'! This is rather a puzzling question for the political philosophers. A First-Ratx Notice.? We must give the Ex Itrees credit for knowing something. This may ,>robably appear to some ot our readers a ratht r startling admission. But it is true after all. That profoundly sagacious concern certainly seems to nave a tolerably accurate knowledge of its amia ble contemporary of the Courier fr Enquirer. Not .atisfied with the exposition it had given a day or wo since of the character ot the editor of the ( ou rier, and which we copied yesterday with the ('owner's reply, the Exprtu of that evening conn s >ut with the following additional opinion of the jalibre and attainments ot its neighbor:? The " Couataa." or rather It* " Snarleyow" editor, who ii ilUtiiiguiihed more tor hi* had temper and sneak ? ng pro|>eii*iiie* than for any good qualities of head or in-art, follow* up one falsehood with another in regmd t< We exposed two ol it* atrocities on Satur ley, and find the following in the Courier of Monday, ihe Express which was pioliably prepared lor its reader* a* a Sab oath day recreation. It lay ? of the Express : ' I' took an article Irotn this pay er, written the day he lore, hy him who is writing now; leaded it as editorial, and with the exception ol the Brit line which it changed ? n order to conceal the thelt, sent it forth, word for won!, as we wrote it, for its own, as it had <1 .no tho very daj ?efuro by another editenal paragraph from this paper, and another still a lew day s before that " ?'

We sre sorry to watie so many words upon so poor a aub. iect; I.ut ? e must add that the Courier man seeks to hide ? own oftences by the bad treatment of his neighbor! II the Courier forgotten the article it took bodily and -.litottally, irom Blackwood, a* to the ill success of Free I'rade in Oreat Britaui f To this very fluttering and civil notice, the gen tleman whom the Erjireu has even taken thetrou ole to christen over again, replies? II the Express will venture to assert, what It attempts to insinuate in these questions, we will apply to ita state ments the epithet they deserve. This little a flair appears to be progressing very ?avorubly, and like a promising young cnbbage is r*p;d y coming to a head. We hope the gentle men will go on, as they seem to be in ? fair way ?if for once telling the truth, and helping the pub lic to an illuminated edition of each other's charac ter, which may save their future biographers ar> immense deal of trouble. Temperance ?A very interesting meeting takes place at the Tabernacle this evening. Mr. Gough, 1 young temperance orator, who ia very highly ?poken of, will deliver an address, descriptive of a lute tour throughout thin State, tor the purpose oi advocating this cause Tar. Odd-Fellows or New Jersey.?A great lathering ot the Odd-Fellows of New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania, takea place at Trentoi. (his day. The scene and proceeding! at tin " Grand Encampment," will be very intereating I'hi* benevolent association has grown up into ai immense?highly respectable, and influential body within the last lew years. We have sent a vporter to Trenton, and will give * full tsd gra i us. report Ia umboihiw's popor Asylum twr tkc Blind. The vacation being about te take place, the usu al annual examinations of the pupils of the institu tion have been held during yesterday and the day previous. At two o'clock a considerable number of visitors were in attendance, and very soon after tha' hour^the first class was called up. We forgot to observe that the pupils of the institution appear ed to be numerous, and the f emale portion extreme ly interesting. They were dressed without excep tion in white, and the same uniformity preserved m other minor portions of their dress. A pale and dejected cast of countenance?and that look of ab straction observable in most cases in the blind,was quite apparent, and disposed the observer to regard them and their lot in life with some feelings of so lemnity In their manner too, they seemed remark ably subdued. None of the vivacity or playful ness of youth was displayed, although they were mostly very young; and indeed from the general demeanor of male and female, one would be in clined to draw the inference that the exclusion of physical light from the visual organs, imparts a downcast and sombre hue to the soul within, and takeB away almost the entire of its sympathy with the external world. The first class called upon was composed of fe males. Th;se underwent a short examination on the fundamental principles of plain geometry, trigo nometry, and natural philosophy. The answers were given with expertneas, as well as those in re ply to the examination on the solar system ; the distances, magnitudes, periods and other laws ot the heavenly bodies. The next female class were then questioned on natural philosophy ; ifb definition, qualities of mat ter, chemical and capillary attraction, the attrac tion of cohesion and gravitation, tha density, elas ticity and indivisibility of matter. This wusiis lened to with keen attention by the ladiea prt sent The first male clasB then were examined on me chanics, machinery, hydraulics and hydrostatics. They seemed perfectly familiar with the leading definitions and theorems connected with these sui' jects. The mechanical powers?gravity of bodies; their motion, &c. were lully entered into, ana eli cited certainly a specimen of good powers of me mory, as well as acquaintance with the several U> pit s to which their attention was called. Alter Miss Crosbie had recited an ode composed in the valedictory style for that occasion, then was a recess of five minutes. On re-assembling in the school room, the senior pupils repaired to,the choir Hnd arrange themselves, male and female, separately on either side of th> organ. Then followed some specimens of their musical powers, both vocal and instrumental. First whs performed a march by the band, con -isting of flute, clarionets, French horns and trom bones. The latter instruments were most skill fully used, and indeed, considering the defectiv> organization of the band, the music was inspiriting Several pieces were played and sung, amongsi 1 heni two or three melodious sengs accompanied by the piano, upun which instrument one of tin pupils showed a remarkable degree of skill. Hat the gent of this musical treat was that super!' anthem " Vital spark of heavenly flame." The united strength of the classes joined in this, and the organ accompanied. It was admired and felt Those iiitetesing creatures, the blind pupils, looked us though they were abstracted from a.l that the soul or the senses take cognizance of, bin music. Whilst they pronounced those inspired lines of Pope, we were forcibly reminded of an allusion to the poems of sacred iiiubic by the sam poet? The silent preacher hears the potent strain, And lerls that grace his prayers besought in vain; The blessings caught thioughout the laboring throng, And heaven is won by violence of song. The services were closed by a neat and sensible address to the pupils by Mr Randall; and it wns very apparent that all present were deeply impress ed with the uncommon evidences of the good am excellent effects of such institutions, that werepri sented thus throughout the whole proceedings. Health ok the City-?A good deal of alarm h ... been excited by the appearance of the last retun of the City injector, from which we find that tlx mortality during the past week has been very con stderably greater than that of the preceding wee! On examination, we have ascertained that the e.\ cess in the aggregate of last week's report arise from the increased mortality amongst children I appears that upwards of one hundred and fifty chil dren, under the age of five years, have died durn . the past week, and chiefly from those disrast > of the bowels, which usually prevail at this seas< i. ol the year. In most cases, disorders of the bowels, with which children are afilicted at this season, are pro duced by eating unripe, improper fruit, or an exce sive quantity of that which may be ripe and harm less when used in moderation. Parents cannot he too frequently reminded that strict attention t< the diet and regimen of infants and children, is ah solutely necessary at this period of the year. Or" of the be&t tonics and preventives of disease in chil dren, is a cold bath in the morning Even th youngest infant should be plunged in cold wate> every morning. The cold bath has an astonishing effect in strengthening the muscular fibre, and pre serving the healthy action ol the skin. Military Movements.?The New England Guards, of Boston, will arrive here this morning ? seven o'clock. They will be received on the Batte ry by the City Guard of this city. The City Guard have made liberal and extensive arrangements foi the reception of the N. E. G. They have rented and fitted up, as we have already mentioned, a splendid house in Houston si., which is to be their private head quarters during the stay of their Bostm guests, and have employed first rate caterers to fur nish them with all good things eatable and drinka ble. They have also made arrangements with Niblo for a splendid supper and ball to be give' a la f&t* champrtrt in the open garden, accompaniei with a magnificent display of fireworks, which wi! cost something like a thousand dollars. The fete comes off to-morrow evening It instated that the New England Guards are n temperance corps They lately passed an unani rnous vote not to drink any wines or liquors when in uniform This was a most excellent move. The National Blues, Cap'.. Doolittle, of New Haven, were in Boston last week, and partook ol a collation, on Saturday morning at the Stackpole House. In the afternoon, the Boston Light Inlantn turned out in an hour's uotice, under Capt. John C. Park, and tendered them civilities and an escort. nding in a supper. The Blues are a fine looking corps, with blue coats and white pants. They re turned home on Monday. We are requested to refer those who wish to at tend the drill at Fort Hamilton, to the adveitise ment of the steamboat Pilot. Saratoga ?Upwards of four thousand persom are at present in this village of scandal, dust, gin slings and bubbling fountains. The famous Doctoi Stillmnn is there, and makes a great sensation Any quantity of the Browns, and Smiths, and Jacksons of our principal cities are also there There never has been a season of such bustle and gaiety amongst the aristocracy of the wash-tub, the apple-stand, and the sugar-hogshead. Palmo's Opkka House The new perform ances at this theatre are conducted with great spirit, and the Ellsler brothers are much to be ad mired ; but the gem of the place now, is the grand Saloon, extending from Chambers to Reade street, and it really is a perfect Arabian Night's paradise The paintings which adorn the walls are beautiful, and the Chiaese lamps, with their soft, deliciout light, are voluptuously imposing. Add to this the glances from many bright eyes, and the charm i, complete. We recommend a visit to Palmo's to all who would really enjoy themselves Movements of Col. Chaffin.?This distinguish ed individual, aged 19 year?, and standing 27 inchet in his slippers .leaves town this evening for Sara toga. He visited Wall street yesterday and hit presence put a stop to all operations in that happj place lor au half hour or more. Packets for Eurofe.?Three excellent packets, the Europe, for Liverpool, Baltimore, for Havre, and Prince Albert, for London, will leave this port UNN9MW Ckiccet Match Between the St. Geoeoe'b and New Yoiie Ceiceet Clubs ?This match was finished yesterday. On the previous evening when the sun went down, Mr. Russell had got 54 and Mr. Green 16, leaving the St. George's Club aboui | 33 to get with three wickets down, and six othen to go in. Shortly after eleven o'clock, the same was resumed, Messrs Green and Russell continuing J their play, and it was most beautiful. The batting ol Mr. Russell was admired by all on the ground, and the cautious play of Mr. Green elicited great praise. The fielding of the New Yorkers was also | capital; if they are not a match for the St. Geerge's with the bat and bowling, we believe they are | quite so in the field. It was fully expected thai Russell and Green would by themselves make all that wa? required, but the fielders were too mam for them; Mr. Russell was in 23 minutes, received 13 balls and scored 9, when he was bowled out b\ Clarke. Mr. Green had still worse luck, he was | only in nine minutes, receiving 13 balls and scoring 5, when he was caught by Sawyer. Notwith standing these failures, the St George's were con fident of their success ; and the succeeding players, although wanting but lew to score, were cautious in their play, as the fieldere were sharp upon them, and the next four that went in finished the mattei with two over, and two of their members to go in The following is the score of both innings of the St. George's Club i? . .

?f 'he St George's Club claimed ihe ball of the New York Club as their lawful prize, being tin victors on this occasion, which, after some con sultation, was delivered up to them. It wih b< ornamented and hung in the St George's Club Room as a trophy. The New Yorkers certs-nK contested the matter nobly, and even in their de feat have gained laurels. The St. George's canni.t afford to play them, we should think, on the sarm terms again, particularly in the absence of some M their ablest playeis, one ot whom is gone to Eng land, and several others have not yet returned frou their visit to Syracuse. Niblo's and the New Buklktta.?A full house last night, which was the second of this novelty, shows that it is likely to be a good hit. It surel.v should be so, for it contains an immensity ol amusement. Every sentence has its pun, each in cident of the plot its laughable extravagance. Apro pos of the plot?upon ihe whole, it is simple and well detailed. The principal characters are Queen Oracioso, Princess Allfair, her haughty daughtei, the King of the Golden Mines, and several other i royal suiters, and the Yellow Dwarf. The latter being under the power of the spells ol the fairy of the inaccessible isles, must marry 1 princess or forfeit his life. The second scene in act the first is a gorgeous representation of the in terior of the palace of Queen Gracioso, where the royal suitors present their formal addresses to All fair (Miss Taylor). Shah Loojah Ben Ali, and al1 the rest, are very unceremoniously refused, excepi the King Fernando, whose well-told story, goo. address, handsome person, but, above all, hi golden treasures, somewhat propitiate the Princess She consents to let him call again, and in ih> interval sets out to consult the Hag of the Desen upon the business. She meets Flasterino, the ai tendant of Fernando. He, entirely unacquainte. with the Princess, pn&?es a most pompous pant - tryric on his Prince and his wealth When tin Princess discovers he is Fernando, she is all hi decided in his favor, becomes quite intimate wii ? Flusterino, entrusts her baskets and its contents t< hint, and the worst consequences result. He es - the apples and cakes; the dwarf and hsg appeal ind nothing to offer them as presents. The await with grimaces and grotesque gestures, demands h Hand, tui pain of exposing her to the lions of th desert. She consents, lor the sake of preset -i safety, to give a promise to be his at a future tinn . but treats the whole affair with due contetiip When on the point of marrying Fernando, the di gustitig monster ot a dwarl ap^ars with his all* ?he hag, and by the force of their foul spells,carrit Fernando to captivity in the steel castle, out < which he is rescued through the friendly intervei. uon of the benevolent fairy'? Beeswing." Prio cess Allfair and Fernando are married, the dwm allied, and several other events take place, of mi almost equally notable kind. It is in seeing the highly ludicrous action, an< hearing the all humorous, and often winy language ? if the leading characters, that the relish consist Every one appeared much amused. The parts ar< well cast, and whatever-humor and merit there n in the piece, is well brought out. Miss Taylor is . veritable Princess, whether on the stage or in tie palace?whether repelling impertinent suitors, o attracting admiring audienceB. Fernando, too, w,o well played by Feriuo, and Nickinson as the Yellmi l)wart, was a fair giant in fun. Miss Clarke, lot, did her part unexceptionably. This novelty wilt have a most successful run, it i. evident. While it marches triumphant, howevet we should like that Mr. Mitchell would see tha< certain of his supemutnary aids march when oi the stHge better to time. A little defect is magm lied by a contrast with surrounding excellence. Common Council.?It will be seen that the Boari if Alderman last evening refused to appropriati $3000 towards closing the stone wall at the over -laugh near Albany, and then occupied about tw< hours in discussing an ordinance to stop the bells < I the charcoal wagons, the tin horns of the fisl carts, and the brass trumpets of the fruit pedlars, which was finally adopted, and these noisy gentle men ordered to takeout a license at $5 per annum The Board then adjourned till Monday, 26ih Au gust. Trotting and Pacing Matches at Hobokrn This Day.?Considerable excitement appears t< prevail on the sport that ia announced to come ot over the Beacon Course. Betting was very lively last evening, and the attendance will no doubt bt great. Music for the Whigs ?The Boston Clay vo calists will give a Concert at the Apollo this evening. City Intelligence. Police Record, July 30 ? Sriem. Sessions.?Mayot Harper preaiilrd at the Court of Special Sessions, in th< temporary absence of the Recorder, ana exhibited almos as much natural shrewdness and peculiarity aa the lota venerable Dicky Hiker He disposed of some thirty un fortunates in a manner that satisfied some, but wofully d? appointed others. Acting Mayor.?Justice Matsell presided during th> temporary absence of his Honor the Mayor on the Lons lalnnd Hailread excursion, which unfortunately he missed ra he was too late lor the last train of cars. The gold spec; ol the Judge resembled those of his Honor very much and the "corporation" was well represented. A Female Kosher y ?Catherine Bloomfitdd, of (JO Mot' street, lest $60 mid charged Julia Marshall, who was ar rested. a ith stealing it She confessed lha offence, an. returned $13 ol the stolen money Another ?A woman named Charlotte Barclay wa> fully committed for stealing wearing apparel from tleerg ' ea at $11, """ * Beard, tf 137 Liberty street, valued at $11, which wa> found in her trunk. F.sTEaaivE Case or Fraud?The case of Sam 1 Adams who was arrested in Ohillicothe, Ohio, a few days since by officers A M. C. Smith and Jator, on a charge of oh tain mi goods valued at $61 n#0 by fraud from Suydam Sage A Co , was heard in Chambers before Judge Daily yesterday, and Adama was admitted to bail. A lull ac count of the mattar will be found under its proper head.

He stated that the mat'er waa a mere family quarrel between Mr Cruger and hia wife all about imaginary grievances existing between parties, who possessed every earthly means of happi ness. Mr O'Comob was heard in reply.?The artifices, the plans laid down by the complai.iant to marry a rich wife would afford ample grounds for him to rest bis case upon. There was a degree of deep fttifico and deaign in the manner In which the bill bad bee filed against Mrs. Cruger. and while he defied the complainant to lay hia finger upon a single spot against the chsracter and repu tation of hia client, he still could not help cursoiily al luding to the charge ol friendship, which, it was alleged, existed between Mrs Cruger and a Mr Pepper, who hap pened to have a family. The only other charge which he could bring against the lady was. that the was pious ; and in his thirst 1 r independence he had dragged 'he lady into a court of jua'ice, snd with a degree ot par tinacy in puisning his course he charges, to substantiate his case, that one of the lady's brother it an idiot, and.there fore unfit to act as trustee?that very brotaer whom he himself bad appointed under his own hand He came in to court ostensibly to restore his conj ugal rights; but it was not (or his conjugal rights be came in, it was for filthy lucre. His bill goes tbe length to charge hia wile with faithlessness, ana in the language of abuse in the whole course he has pursued during thi progress of the suit. For eight years it was "bubble, bubble, toil and trouble/' "growl and grumble " He further state* that the ? made advances to bim. He would be able to show by the documentary evidence in tbe case, that from 1836 ha had pursued her, her fortune, and by able ingenuity worked himself into her good graces The evidence would fully show that previous to the departure for Eu rope in 1836, no engagement had existed between them, as is'charged in the bill When Mrs. Cruger left for Europe, he followed; he went to Italy, France. Spain, Scotland, England, and by a letter of bis dated Edinburgh 1830. it would appear beynnd a suadow of a doubt that there existed no promise of matrimony up to this time, lor this letter relates te a courtship then Aiming between the then Miss Douglas?the wealthy Misa Douglas and a Mr. Smith. Mr O'Conor read this Jetter, which went at length into the merits of the misunderstanding be tween Mr. Smith and the then Miss Douglas (now Mrs. Cruger), and finally the separation took place, when Mr. Cruger commenced his courtship. Mr. O'C. next com mented on the fact of letters being received by the com plainant from j female to whom he occasionally extended relief, which letters ware opened by Mrs. Cruger, who ia a controversy on tbe subject, took occasion to ask bar husband if the woman was married. Mr. Cruger'* reply and explanations were also read,in tbe course of w hieh ha remonstrates with Mrs C far opening the letters. Mr. O'Conor will resume hia argument this maming.
