NE\V _VORK HERALD. Sfw Yoi 1kg Monday, October 7, 1844. i., ji s Mk Guitar Ma.-s Mketinu or tub Wum at Castlk Garden To might.?The whigs of the Third Con gressional District, hold a great mabs meeting bt Castle Garden this evening Juo. M. Clayton is expected to deliver one ol his rousing speeches It so, we will report him, lor he can make a great speech when nil circumstances are favorable. The Mainland Ktectloii?Its Analysis and Philosophy. The newspaper of both parties are full of the re sults of the recent election in Maryland, and va rious moral and political conclusions are drawn therefrom. But we have seen no correct, philoso phical analysis ol that event in any party paper in any part of the country. The result of that election, although ini|>ortant in itself, is, however, "inly a part of the &reat movement in moral, poli tical, and social philosophy, which is now gbing on throughout this country. This is a movement in society which, in some ot its aspects, resembles a certain period in the history of the Roman Em" pire, after the time of Augustus Cu;sar. We see the same violence?the same lactiousnets?the same corruption?the same lolly?the same pas sions, political, moral, and everything else, deve loped now, as then, the only difference being that ot a Roman and American people. But to the point at issue. What is the exact result of the election in Mary land 1 What are its moral and political bearings 1 What is the opinion entertained * f it by the two parties'! What indications docs it a fiord of the probable results in the elections vet to take place 1 in order to give a perfect solution to these questions, it will be necessary to exhibit the au thentic opinion ot the result entertamed by the party who have triumphed ; and here it is, in the address issued by the whigs ot Maryland to the wliigs ol the Union .? Static Cehtral Committkk or Maryland to the Whius or thk Union.? We send you glad tiding* from Maryland. We huve realized ourhopes, and fulfilled our piomise to you by the election of a whig Governor and a whig Legislature. Thomas U. Pratt, our candidate lor Governor, is elected by a decisive majority, and to the Legislature we huve elected members Irom seventeen counties out ol twenty, composing the State. In addition lo the great triumph ol redeeming the Ex ecutive of the State irom the dominion of locofocoitm, to which it has been subject tor near six years, we have se cured the following result in the Legislature Whig. Loco. Senate 16 6 House of Delegates 01 21 76 n Whig majority on joint ballot, 49 votes. Securing the election of a whig U. S. Senator. This victory lias been achieved in a contest character ized b> obstacle* such as the Whigs ot Maryland have never before had lo encounter, aad which, for the honor of our State, we hope we shall never again have to con tend with. The election, everywhere, beyond the con fine* ol the City ol Baltimore, has been conducted in a manner which satieties the most sanguine friends of the Whig cauiie. Tiie questions at issue nuve been fully dis cutiu.1 by them, ami the people huve spoken their senti ments through the Ballot Box, with an honorable and en lightened appreciation of the great interests involved in the ele tiuu Our oppsneuts have exerted their utmost strength, and have b-.ieu most signally defeated In the City oi Baltimore the contest hus been one of peculiar virulence, and it has been sustained on the part ot our adversaries, we regret to say, by efforts which will neither redound to their'honor nor to the future strength of tneir party. Tiliscily has been the point upon which the exertions of the enemies of the Whig cause were chiefly directed. It was obviously their plan to secure a majoutyhere which should outweigh the expected suc cesses ot the Whigs wf the counties. All the means that money, personal endeavor, diligent misrepresentation, promised favor, flattery, or foreign interposition could supply, were at their command. Under the combined Operation ol these agencies our opponents have won the city. They owe their success alone to an inglorious dexterity in the practice of those art* by which the popu lar voice is suppressed and th popular will oveithrown. The largest vote ever taken in the city of Baltimore heretofore was ihat which was cast in October, last year, upon the occusion ol the Mayor's election. The whole then polled was 14.H98 Of these the whig vote wai 7,000 j that of our oppoueirs 7-2UH The vote cast in the re. ent election amounted 17,IW, oi which 7.96H were cast by the whigs mid 9,100 by the other party, snowing tin increase ot w hig votes to tne mount ot arts and of op ponent vot*'S to the umo'int of |,8?-J Tlil? statement speaks for i'sell We have no hesitation in expressing our belief that of these l H9J votes, lull I WW) were falsely and sum ptitiously introduced to the ballot box , that they have ti en the product ot h skillul and diligently |>erpetra ted fraud upju the rights of thu real voters ot Baltimore. Casting these aside,the mnjori y would have been for the whig candidates, in accordance with the best estimates which we had previously been able to make of the elec tion. The artifices of our opponents, however, have been frustrated by the devotion of our friends throughout the State, and we can afford to take the ^advantage which the miscarriage of tbts city has thrown upon us. The State of Mary laud is firmly and immutably planted in the whig line, and she will assuredly increase the streugth ol her position in November The battle has heeu already fought, and an honorable victory?the more honorable from the baffltd stratagems of the enemy?has petched upon our standard We give the results of the contest throughout the State from authentic sources ot informa tion, such as have been despatched to us in the first mo ments ot victory. Upon these full reliance may be placed Let oar brother whigs throughout the Union confide in this communication, and imitate the exaaiple of Mary land. James Ilarwood, Wm Schley, Isaac Munroe, Samuel Jones, jr. Goo H Richardson, O. W Lurman, W H. Collins, Samuel H. Tagart, fetarUary, T. Y. Wal-h, Thomas Kelso, John L. Carley, Truman Cross, Francis Burns, W H Oat hell, O. C Tiffany, John P. Kennedy, G. A. V. Sperckelson, Geo. M. Gill, Alex. Murdoch, W. H. D C. Wright. It will be seen from this address, that the whigs of Maryland boast of a most extraordinary victory. But, in the midst of their boasting, they seem to feel evident chagrin at the singular defeat experi enced by them in Baltimore city, which they at tribute entirely to corruption, bribery and false hood, operating to the extent of one thousand three hundred voteB. This is a solemn charge made by the organs or representatives, you may say, of thirty-five thousand voters in the whole State ol Maryland against thirty-lour thousand other voters, their equals in patriotism, talent, virtue, honesty, moral worth and every quality that ennobles the species. We believe that this document is founded on incorrect data?that these respectable men who have put their names to it, have given strength to falsehood, and that, alth'jughjthey have gained a victory,?and a meagre victory it is,?in Mary land, they have by no means demonstrated that the opposite party is corrupt and demoral ized, as they would imply by their charge?a charge which reflects as much credit on one side as the other. Let us analyze the result. We have now before us the returns from every county in Maryland, and these returns when com pared with the result of the Ptesidential election, in 1810, give us the following result:?

Now, it will be recollected that we pub lished a very curious statement a few days ago, taken from the* A'a/iorW InttUi^tnrtr, which gave an estimate ol the probable increase in the State of Maryland this year as compared with that ol 1840, calculating on the best data known, and that this estimate was 73,290. It will be seen therefor that instead ?! any material increase in the vote actually taken nt the recent election, there '? an absolute deficiency of nearly three I outaud less fhau whut was expected aa Rrowing out of the natural increase of popula tion l'his sweeps away at once all the imputa tions put forth by the whig committee of Mary land, ihat there could have been any material num ber ol fraudulent votes taken either in Baltimore, or any other part of Maryland. No doubt at every election, there istakena small number of voters not entitled to exercise the right offianchise, and a few who attempt to repeat their votes, but they very [ seldom materially allect the result, or change it from what the legal voters make it. In the present case, we understand that of thoae who have been arrested in Baltimore on a charge of illegal votfc*, the greater number voted the whig ticket. Be this ?nn m*y,u.18j?yevident that the recent elec tion in Maryland, has been conducted on as honora le principles of fairness as any of our elections, and as strictly, a8 ca? be expected in the pre sent moral condition of this country and of the world. It i?t therefore, highly culpable in any w ug committee, or any democratic committee, to raise the cry of " fraud," "illegal voting." " cor r?| tion o the ballot-box," against their opponents, "us giving the handle to the enemies of republican institutions in other lands to quote one party in the community as a witness against the other, in order to defame the principles and progress of de mocratic government. The result in Maryland, let the whigs boast of it as much as they please, is a victory to be sure, but it is such a victory as betokens no good for their cause next month, unless they conduct the canvats very differently lor the future. They have lost in lour years over four thousand votes. We have re jected in this comparison the years '41, '42, and '48, ecause in all these State elections, the full vote was never brought out, and the only just com parison that c?n be made must be made between the great Presidential contest ol 1840, tnd toe pre sent one, which is almost equal to it in point of excitement. The result then is a meagre victory for the wl.igs "a victory," which may be likened to the victory which King Pyrrhus gained over rfbricius and the Romans, whose value he very properly described, when he said?" Another such victory will be the defeat of Pyrrhus himself!" It is very evident, therefore, from a fair, accu rate, and philosophical view of the recent results in Maine and Delaware, even granting Delaware to have gone for the Whigs-and now in Mary land, that the tide of popular feeling is flowing in against Mr. Clay. In order to show this at once andjin the briefest possible space, we present the fol owing analysis of the recent votes in the States of Maine and Maryland Analy # 1810. 1844 WhiKvot. Heft Maryland. 2g ^ <? lies aud 108,300 73,290 Person, not voting in 1844 ? There can be no mistake in these statements. They are from the highest authorities, and they present the whole case and position of the two par ties in these States, and probably afford a tolerably accurate indication of their relative position throughout the Union. What has brought about this extraordinary change in the prospects of the two candidates, Polk and Clay, during the last six months 1 In May the two parties commenced he contest-the Whigs with most bril liant prospects of carrying Mr. Clay into the Presidency with the greatest ease in the world, and the Den.ocrais wiih the most gloomy fore bodings of a total rout and defeat. But now, judging from "all the indications before us?from the recent elections?from the position of the two parties?from the mass meetings?from the spirit and enthusiasm of both sides-it does appear very evident that unless something be done very speed ily to retrieve the fortunes of Mr. Clay, his cause is lost beyond redemption What a singular result in so brief a space of time ! Who ia Mr. Polkl A very honest, amiable, moral, well-meaning, ob scure man in Tennessee. A man who never had any pretensions to great taleut or great statesman ship-very little known beyond the limits of his own State and the District of Columbia-possessed ol none of those shining qualities, or attractive personal associations which belong to Mr. Clay. Mr. Polk is a man who, if elected to the Presiden cy, must, as a matter of course, fall into the hands 01 some one of the various f/iyuM-the Van Buren or the Calhoun, or the Cass clique,-which fwill contend for empire. Not so would it be in case of Mr. Clay a return. He has sufficient strength of character and knowledge of human nature to e himself the President. And yet notwithstand ing all this, Mr. Clay's chances appear to be alto gether gone, unless something be done to save him. This unfortunate result is now beginning to be un derstood. It has been brought about by Mr. Clay's I indiscreet, and selfish,and ignorant friends in every State. Look, for instance, at Maryland. We there see Heverdy Johnson, John P. Kennedy, and all the other foolish, indiscreet, and ignorant leaders of the whigs, making issues on abstract questions and impracticable theories, which never reached the minds of the people. They have cried out "tariff" -" tariff"-" Texas"-" Texas"-" protection" protection ;" and more nonsense never has been perpetrated by any class of orators Uian by these whig orators on these subjects. The democrats have turned every one of those iwues against them. They have shown that the tariff as it now exists increases the profits of the manufacturers over those of any previous years, but that the poor farmers and planters get less for their produce than ever they did before ? On the question of Texas the same thing has re suited. What country-what people ever refus ed to annex to their dominions another and a neighboring fertile territory 1 It m human nature. And let whig politicians, with Mr Webster at their head, talk as much as they please about the balance of power between the North and the South, the great mass of the Ameri can people never will refuse to annex any splendid territory, be it Texas, or Oregon, or Canada, or even Mexico itself, let the balance of power in the State* be what it may, and let the annexation bring as many wars as it may. It was this in stinctive impulse of the Roman people which led them to the conquest of the world. The same im pulse has inspired the English neople, the French people, and every great people that ever exercised sway iu the world. Thus we have presented a fair analysis of the recent election in Maryland. We have shown that the Whigs have lost ground greatly there?tnat when they talk about "fraud," they are only dis gracing their countryand strewing argumentsagains: the success of republicanism into the hands of mon archists in Europe?that the disastrous result ha* been produced by their own folly?that they are on the verge of destruction?and that they have little time left to seek salvation from an ignominious de feat in November next. We have shown that even in Maine and Maryland, although the ag gregate vote at the recent elections was large compared with that of the previous year, yet that, according to all reasonable calculations, there are a number of persons who did not vote at all, and that the same is the case in other States-and that thus there is a chance left to the whigs, if they know how to avail themselves of it. But we do nay that iu the State of Pennsylvania and in the State o| \PW York, the peregrinations of Mr ' '"',8ter In 'he one, and of Cassius M Clay in the other, endanger them both. A more fatal and suicidal policy w?? never adopted than th. permitting the rmwionof nicha Marplot asCassiu. M Clay to win over the Abolitionists. Let tfa. endeavor to avert the danger thu, threatened. Let them, by personal and earner application, seek to gam over the neutral masses Hut let them have no more mass meetings?no more celebrutiona. There is still some chance re maining. In all this admonition to duty, and warning of danger, we are supported by Mr. Clay himself, and by such men as John Speed Smith, who feara that even Kentucky is in danger. So do we, so does Mr. Clay, so do many honest and sensible men. But so do not the foolish whig leaders and orators, and so does not Cassius M Clay, who seems to have moie sail than ballabt. Tempest in a Tea-Pot -Great Monster Mass Meetjno on Staten Island.?We have heard a great deal recently about mass meetings, and im mense popular gatherings, both of whigs and loco focus, in the interior of this State. The locofoco mass meeting at Aib?^^as been filling the pa|>er!> | of that kind for several days pa*t, and they have ! estimated the number of persons present on that occasion from 80,000 to 100,000. Then we had the great mass meeting of the whigs at Rochester, which, according to all accounts, was a very larg' one, although the whig papers have not yet been able to ascertain whether there were 100 000 or j 150,000 persons present. The gross exaggeration by both parties of the numbers who attend their meetings, is, indeed, amusing It is probable that at Albany there were 20,000 people congregated and the same at Rochester?the remaining scores ol thousands being mere "leatherand prunella." But we are going to have a mass meeting to-day which really will be overwhelming. It is to take place at Richmond on Staten Island, and they are going to have one whole, undiminished steamboat to take them down from the city at 11 o'clock from one of the wharves. At this meeting, too, they are going to have two great orators of the democracy ?Captain Bob Tyler and James R. Whiting, the ex-District Attorney. It seems that these gentle men have been writing letters of late in imitation ol Mr. Henry Clay, for find ?wo from them in the papers?the one from Mr. Tyler, in relation to the age of the world, the gift of prophecy, and Irish Repeal in particular; the other from Mr. Whiting,giving in his adherence to the great Amer ican Republican party. Here they are :?

But we cannot lail A righteous God. who orders the destinies of man kind, if He permits inhumanity, oppression and vice lor a time to triumph, also commands, with an inevitable cer. taintv that the day ol retribution shall come. If there were a man of this time gilted with the [ ower of the pro phets of old, to look into the future, my soul tells me that he would see, over the oppression and misery which now pervade the land of your nativity, a light pre??tly kindling, whose power and glory shall illumine the dark uess of her scenery, and irradiate the faces ol her toiling children-, with the hallowed rays of civil and religious freedom. Then press forward with your nobis task, in confidence and laith. Ill-judging men may sneer at and condemn you.

Ignorant men may scoft at your efforts, deride your sentiments, ?n<l threaten you with violence He who seeks the priceless treasure ol ireedom, should be willing to sacrifice his life for its attainment. The signs of the times indicate plainly that the world if now passing through one of those periodical changes which make epochs in history, and whose sublime results wonderfully and profoundly change the moral and politi cal aspect of human affairs The republican principle ol government is in the progress of the consummation of its great destinies, and it gives me a high and Stirling pride, identified as I am in feeling with Irishm.n, and in pnnci pie with Repeal, that the regenerating power of republi caniim should first have sown its seed on the other side ol the Atlantic, in the soil of Ireland Will you express these sentiments to my friends ann brethren in Alnany. and believe me, with great regard and esteem, your friend and obedienMeTva^t, ^ ^ER To Messrs.

Sir?Your letter has just reached me, and at this hour lean only say that so far as I am acquainted with the principles of the American Republican Pai ty, I ? m in fa vor of them. In the selection of candidates for public offices, a Native Amerioon stands always pre-eminently flist entitled, and with reference to integrity and capacity, alone should be selected. I am in favor of a r? luction of thn city expenditures, and a reorganization of our city police . . ,o , My principles have always be*n against the doctnneol pledges, believing that candidates for public favor, shoul.l be selected, because he is, in your own good language, honest, capable, deserving, and of good repute I he have these qualities all other things will be added unto k'Tam not, sir, personally desirous of the nomination^ but if vourconvention believe from their knowledge ol my cliHi-.icter, that I could, il elected, bo instrumental in terving my fellow citizens usefully, they have the pledge in the performance of my past official duties how I shall endeavor to serve them it nominated and elected. I am, Sir, your most ob't, J.F.FuaNALD.Ksq. J. R. WH1TINU. Whatever may be thought of these letters, it is certain that the meeting will bearouser. Therewill be at least one thousand persons there undoubtedly, which according to the political arithmetic means ten or fifteen thousand, and no doubt the enthu siasm, talent, eloquence, and jollification will be proportion ably glorious and overwhelming. We think it will be the " last of the cocked hats," and, entertaining such a belief, we have sent down our whole corps of reporters to report them all at lull length, and particularly Captain Bob, whose re marks on the Repeal question, the progress of hu manity, the prcpht cies of the great seers of past ages, the destiny of the race, and other topics ol surpassing interest will be profoundly novel, origi nal and edifying. Mr. Whiting's views of the American Republican principle, "so far as he un derstands them, at 12 o'clock noon, this day,' will also be highly worthy of attention, as they will, doubtless, be eminently philosophical and instruc tive. It will be a curious concern altogether? quite a curious concern. Newspapers.?Two or three new newspapers commence their career this week. This is good news to the paper makers, bat we doubt whether it will turn out so well for the projectors. Duiing the last six months, in consequence of the political excitement on both sides, probably more paper has been used?or rather abused?and more money made by the paper manufacturers, than ever before in as many years in this country. They have, in deed, been the gainers by the political excitement, for the most of the newspapers have been thrown q[ given away. Indeed, bo much is this a matter | of course/that on a person, the other day, asking the proprietors of one of these papers what the re ceipts were, was answered that they kept no ac counts?no books?no record whatever of their business?that they did not know before that any books were kept in a newspaper office at all Well, these papers thus last for a few months, but after the election is over, then there will be such a mortality?such a falling of the leaf?such a de cay of vegetatian?such an equinoxial storm, at never have been yet seen in newspaper literature. Relief ok the Inebriate.?We are happy to learn that active and efficient measures have been adopted for the establishment of a fund in this city for the relief of reformed drunkards. This bene volent and much wanted movement has been origi nated by George Phillips Parker, Esq., a wea'thy gentleman, formerly of Boston, but now a resident of this city, and who has for a considerable time past devoted his personal labor and abundant meant to the promotion of the great temperance cause. The Mayor, Mr. Parker and several other respect able citizens, are the trustees of this fund. The Great Fair opens at Niblo's, Twelve O' clock This Day.?For notice of the display of the productions of genius and art, &c., at Ntblo's, ana Lieut. Gov. Bradish's address, 7J o'clock, llii* evening, followed by Ldge's brilliant fireworks, see advertisement. Not yet Come t'P to the Scratch.?Casaius M. Clay has not yet appointed the place of discus sion with the distinguished champion of the black candidate. Hebrew Benevolent Society.?The annual dinner of this highlymeritonous society takes place in a few days at the Apollo. Naval ?The store ship Lexington arrived at this port yesterday from Gibraltar. Below we give a list of her officers:? Lieutenant Commanding, Wm. M. Olendyt Lj^ntsn ant* C F M Spotswood and < has C. Barton ; Master. Daniel Ammen ; Purser, Samuel Forrest j Surgeon, Di niel Kgbert; ( sptain's Clerk, John Mafiuder ; M??tsr? Mate, Cotton Oalo. Italia* Opkra.?The Italian troupe, at PJmo's, bring out to-night, lor the first time, the splendid opera by Bellini, called 11 Pirata. Thin is one ol the best operas oi that celebrated composer, and was performed in this city about twelve yearr ago by the Italian Company ot that day, in the Na tional Theatre, composed principally of Madame Pedrotte, Moiitres<*ir aud Fornibari. Many ol our musical and fashionable people have interesting re collections of that company, and their performance of this favorite opera, and we have no doubt the elegant theatre of Palmo will be crowded to-night to witness its first representation there. Since the last representation of this opera, New York has undergone a great change in its thea trical tastes. Nothing perhaps strikes a stranger, lamiliar with what New Yoik was ten years ago, more forcibly, than the altered aspect of the houses at the places of amusement. At the two shil ling theatres,touch as the Bowery and the Chatham* he sees a certain class of audiences which need not be more particularly described, whilst at the Park, where nearly all the fashion, gaiety, beauty and wit ol the city used to cougregete, he sees very seldom anything but a mixed audience. But of all the elegant, well dressed, aud fashionable houses which we have seen in New York for the las* twenty years, we have seen nothing at all to be compared, in point ot brilliancy, with those at Palmo's lust season, and indeed, on some of the nights last week. There is nothing in this country to be compared to the Btyle and elegance with which the company at Palmo's appear on opera nights. It approaches, and indeed, will bear con trast with the appearance of the houses in London and Paris. The Park theatre occupies a middle position, touching the two extremes of society. But if the stranger wishes to see the fashion, beau ty, elegance, and gaiety of New York, he must visit Palmo's. This encourage*us to hope that the Italian opera is at last finally established in this city, and that there is a class here who have the taste, the refine ment, and the wealth necessary to sustain it from season to season. II it were possible to unite the elegant and attractive ballet of the "Independence ol Greece," with the opera, it would, we think, be highly desirable. This ballet is, indeed, the only thing of the kind ever attempted in this coun try that is worth seeing. Me. Jones' Benefit at the Pabk.?Mr. Jones, the composer of the new opera, called the " En chanted Horse," takes a benefit to-morrow eve ning at the Park Theatre. The merits of this mu sical composition have been generally acknow ledged by the press. It happens to be the first opera composed in this country, that ever made a hit. On these and other accounts, we expect that a large house will reward the author, who, to gieat skill and power as a vocalist, adds the talents and genius of a successful composer. Madame Otto, with her powerful voice and naive acting, is one of the finest features ol the opera. Dempster's Ballad Conceet.?This gentleman will give a vocal entertainment at the Society Li brary this evening. A look at the programme will iuduce all lovers of Scottish melody to attend. f CO* Ole Bull has taken Niblo'a Theatre, and commences his concerts this week. The house is the best for sound in the city, and in the right neighborhood for the supporters of musical talent. Brooklyn Light Guard?This company made their contemplated visit to Newark on Monday last, accompanied by Mayor Sprague, and several guests from both Brooklyn and New York. On their arrival at Newark, they met a reception of the most cordial kind. Gen. Stevens, after intro ducing Mayor Sprague and the other guests to Mayor Uodd, of Newark, most hospitably con veyed them to his residence, as his special guests on the occasion. The Brooklyn troops were taken in charge by their friends, the Lafayette Guard, and escorted to Stewart's Hotel, where festivities on a respectable scale took place in honor of the visit to Newark of the Brooklyn Gnard. Alter being reviewed in the Park, the two companies marched out for target practice. On their return to town, they sat down to dinqf r at Stewart's, ami passed the remainder of the day in the most agreea ble manner, enlivening songs and smart speeches, appropriate toasts, arid the most full and free ex pression of goad will towards each other, prevailed throughout the remainder of the proceedings. New Military Company.-The new militarj company called "The Scottish Guards," will make its first appearance on Thursday next, on oc casion ol the annual inspection of Gen. Morris's Brigade, to which it is attached. The uniform it exceedingly picturesque and striking, and from the respectability ol its members, and the energy ol its officers, it promises to be one of the largest and most popular companies in the city. StTiciDE at Weehawken Hill.?Yesterday the feody of a man was found suspended from a tree, a few rods from the road leading to the Weehawken House, and concealed from the public view by tin act being committed between two rocks. The de ceased was dressed in a black bombazine coat and plaid pantaloons, and appeared to be about twenty years of age, of genteel appearance. He had severed the arteries of his arms, and was found almost in a sitting position. His hat (a low brimmed) and the knife rusted by the blood, wae found by the body. He appeared to have commit ted the act some days ago, as the body was con siderably emaciated. Up to eight o'clock last night no inquest had been held. Montreal Regatta.?The four oared gig Sylph, made by Crolius, of this city, and owned by a boat club at St. John's, won the purse at the Montreal Regatta last week. The Courier gives the following account of the race Four oared Gigs?First cla ?28 Red Rover?Red?St. I awrtnre Club 3 Sylph?White and Gold-St John'* Club . 1 L'Kioile?White?L'Ktoile club ' a Flirt?Pink and White-C H Kurezyn 4 Thin race excited much interest Irom the crack appear ?nee of the boat* and their respective crew*. At starting, the Sylph took the lead, followed closely by the Red uover and L'Etolle, the Flirt bringing up the rear. In this order they continued until they rounded the" boat moored off Longuil rhurch, when L'Ktoile wave the Red Rover the g? by, hut could not gain upon the Hylph. which kept the lead throughout, and won in gallant style, performing the distance, three miles, in nineteen minute* and a lew seconds. A letter Irom one of th? Sylph's crew, states that the Red Rover was built in Scot land. two years since, and was never beaten before 8he is owned i.i Queb< c, and had the best crew out. L'Eteile wua built to beat the Red Rover, and is owned in M?n treal. The Flirt was nothing. The Sylph was manned by very young men trom St John's.

When the Sylph mado her appearance, hei boys were laughed at. But the laugh was very soon on the other side. The scene altogether was a very animated one ; there must have b?en some forty or fltty boats an the water, ol different descriptions, from the frail barque canoe to the yacht ot a hundred tons, betides steamers, kc. The Stew ard's yacht was handsomely decorated with ildgs, and the steamer "Lord Sydenham" was crowded with a good 11 company ol the beauty and fashion of the elty, besides having on board the fine band of the 93rd Highlanders which' discoursed delightful music," and added much to the pleasures of the day. Tha whole terminated without any accident. Sporting.?There is to be some good trotting over Beacon Course this and the following day. The old favorite, Lady Suffolk makes her appear ance, and where she is,with her gentlemanly drivei Mr. Biyant,there is sure to be some excellent sport. For other particulars we must refer to the adrer tiwement. Amusements. Niblo's.?Complimentary benefit to Mr. Mitch (II. and last night ol the seison.

Miliaria ib? The followers of Miller, or as they designate themselves, the Second Advent People, have been bestirring themselves to Borne extent wr ing the pa?t week or ten days; and to at i in their excitement, have called in the assistance of a female, who has created some little seusatio , not only among the followers, but araoog othert, whose organsol curiosity are easily exc.ite was strongly evidenced last evening at t ie ious of prayer of the second advent people, in D-lancey street, where Mrs. S. J. Higgins was announceu hold forth on the subject of the second advent, or the immediate approach of the end of the wor For some time before the hour mentioned tor^|t e commencement of the service, the building, whic ia somewhat capacious, was crowded, principa y with females, if it might be judged by the nl"11' ber of bonnets over uncovered heads, so mucn so that those who came at the appointed hour nau w> stand in the different passages or withdraw, un the table beneath the pulpit, was placed two tin cash boxM, labelled with direction*, as if indica ting, in case of their sudden call, they might be known to whom they belonged, and 111 readiness to be taken with them ou the most sudden emer gency. Shortly afier seven o'clock,the service commenced by singing, after which an elder ly geutleman, wi.h a brown wig and ?ioi.K overcoat to match in color, proceeded to ot^rm. prayer ; the substance of which was that all might be prepared to meet the early coming of Christ, whieh he announced would be sufficiently display ed,re the next Sabbath, and that they would not have another opportunity to meet together to.pre pare for this great judgment. In the c?urse ot hu, nraver the gent eman was responded to by several present insuoh terms as may be found within pa renthesis?He said?"O Lord, aB thou art to ap pear among ua. in a short time l^d the way ward and unthinking to consider of this awful matter. ("Amen, amen.") Let them not ?binkwe are unmindful of their paeaervation. ( O, Lord,Bave them.") Give us hearts to feel the inspiration ot thy holy word and receive them. ( Amen, O, Lord,come quickly.") They have been "nmindj ful o( our warnings, let them now see the truths o our notice. ("God grant them eyes to see. ) O Lord our day is short, let them be P^P"^. ("We are, come forth, O, Lord! ) Ih? gentleman went on thus for about twe"|y minutes, a aelect few responding in still stronger terms than the previous. It was stated that the previous collections were not adequate t? the demands for the present emergencreB of the society, and notwithstanding the close approxima tion of the appointed hour when nothing worldly would be required, it was necessary to have a fur ther subscription,lalthough only some 20 or 30 did lars were required The plates having gone roun?. while another hymn was sung, the great object ol interest presenttd herself. , Mrs. S. J. Higoins then came forward. She is a female of somewhat Interesting appearance, about five feet two inches high, and 30 years of aae, of fair complexion, good countenance, her bright blue eyes of a sparkling cast, but rather I over-coated by her eye-brows, and appeared as rather car?--worn, or anxious; her dreBs was a plain black stuff, with a white collar; on her head was a plain white net cap-in short, her dress wus most simple and neat. She had evidently the appear ance of an individual of enthusiastic spirit, at tfu same time evidenced a degree of temper that any jury would have declared her a monomaniac. At the commencement she begged all indulgence ? her hearers, sayinj? that she had been bo much fa tigued by her previous labors that she was not able to proceed as she desired. She took for herx Rev. c. 3 v. 3, "Take heed how thou hast rt ceived, for I will come as a thief in the mght,, an<. at what hour I comest thou ehalt not know there of," &c. She then proceeded to show that tint was the warning that was now to be fulfilled, anc. that according to revelation the time was close approaching?within a few days of being accom plished. She highly reprobated the professors of religion, and said they only followed fashion in stead of the Lord Jesus, they looked after the one in joining churches, while they neglected the other In the course of her observations, she said, then are those in this city high in authority, professed members of churches, who only sought popularity , bp It aggrandisement, who neglected the cause ol Him whom they outwardly profec^ed to idolize? who despised the words of holy writ, and went on pursuing their worldly objects. (Lord turn their hearts to the truth). These are the individuals t< whom the words of the text were addressed, an on them would re#t the great responsibility (O Lore save us, and make us yours ) She then proceeded to reprobate many professors of churches as tala* lights, who only followed fashion and not Chribt being frequently interrupted by the most extreme ejaculations. She then went on to prove from Scripture, that holy writ pointed out the time ?oi all these things to come to an end, which was about the termination of the present month, and t< call upon all her hearers to be in readiness for the Bridegroom,who would come f otili in all llis glory That He had delayed Hispresence according to th Scriptures, which said that the Bridegroom tarried on the way, and this tarrying had made the pre vious prophecy somewhat erroneous in the eyes ol the unbelievers; but now He was forthcoming, anc it would be well for those who had their lami* trimmed and ready to meet Him, not sleeping at the foolish virgins. (" Lord we are ready, conn quickly.") On the whole, the lady displayed con siderable ability, much more so than might have been expected. The ejaculations ol her MWfrs,iii many instances, were so out of place, and the tone of voice in which they were delivered so pe culiar, and niauy of them at intervals not at all relevant, that it was evident that many preseni could scarcely suppress their risible faculties, i n* speaker's action was somewhat graceful and win uing ; her tone of voice, although rather monoto nous, pleasing, and as she proceeded, gained th? attention of her audience; at the same time stu appeared to be laboring under pain in the right side, as she kept one hand or the other thereon through out the whole ot her address. She is evidently s female of great mental endowments, though it if to be feared not directed in the proper channel, ane one who might have been an ornaafrnt to society under diflerent circumstances. Her address, which was upwards of un hour's duration, was lis tened to throughout with the most profound atten tion, and with the exception ot the ejaculations, might have done credit to some of the D. J> s. ol our Universities for tolerance and forbearance. Theatricals, dec. Mr. Macrhady.?This gentleman has been, dur ing the past week, playing some ol his favorite characters at the Melodeon Theatre, Boston. The Boston papers state that on Thursday evening, a large and very fashionable hou?e, comprising a large number of ladies, assembled to witness Mr. Macready's personation of Werner. He wa* as well sustained as perhaps could be expected, considering all things, at the present epoch of dra matic affairs. On Friday night, the house wae moderately well filled, but the evening was incle* nient, and, therefore, less tickets were called for. The play was Othello. IfMacready had been sup ported by Booth (in a sober state) for Iago,it would nave been glorious; as it was Ryder did very well, and particularly in the celebrated scene, where (ago so cunningly excites jealousy towards his wife in the mind of the fiery, yet noble Moor. He is an nounced to play Richelieu this evening. Good.?A Sunday paper states, that Mr. Henry Phillips, on learning that Dr. Lardner hud lately given a Sabbath lecture to a crowded house, by especial permission of his honor the Mayor, called upon that functionary for a similar permission to give a Sunday concert. He assured his honor thai it should consist entirely of sacred music, such us, the " Stabat Mater" and the " Redemptor Mundi.'' His honor expressed himself perfectly satisfieo with the " Sabbath Mater," but requested him to change his " Kedemptor Munday" into " Re dempior Sunday," the latter being mote suited to the principles, the present fathersofthe city wanted to carry out. Oli Bitll.?The admiration of the Bostonians for this great genius appears not to have diminish'd hy his absence. The papers state mat this great hxrmonist of sounds, has been in our city since Wedntsduy, looking inuch recruited from his bum mer relaxation, and appearing in fine spirits, with more music in his soul than ever, and abundantly prepared to give it expression through the medium of his soft-toned Cremona. Our good citizen.-, however, are not to hear the Norwegian until nexi month, when, after the fulfillment of an engage ment in New York, he will commence a seriei of Concerts in Boston. To listen to his de scription of his new piece?"Nuoaka"-is a* good as the performance itself. He was made dumb, he says, by the sound and solemn as pect of the tremendous torrent. He felt withm him the complete universality of nature't music, striking \ i liia 0 ?. t synipathiet the human heart, and < r? j'.irg not only tfu sublime but the r>t autifnl ot |. ie feeling. So with u true heart-love ot iiiu.hic l?? undertook t< ?ive range to his sensations spon the violin, anc ihe result has been a composition of great power, requiring the std of a superior orchestra. The id* s of the composition is taken from nature, but fancy nomes in his ai"d in the introduction, and the mas ter imagines himsell alone in a woodland whei ?md-like voices salute his ear, first singly, and 'hen produced iu combination ; soon, the desire t< ?tee the cataract assails him, and the orchestrs issist him in giving expression to the tumult of hu leelings. When the wish is gratified, then comet the s?iind of the waterfall, and a touch of hia own sensations. Beautiful vibratory notes are next in Produced, and the grand whole concludes with the iirof "Longtime ago"?a soft nod soothing ter mination.

The Cincinnati theatre was announced to close for the season on last Saturday evening.
