NEW YORK HERALD. Jlfw York, Saturday, November '4, lKtt. One Week Later from Ku rope. The Hibemu, hiving been thirteen days out yes tt rday mm, we huve reason to expect (hut she reached Boston before the inail left in the after noon If site did arrive by that time, we shall re ceive her news at an early hour this morning. ELECTION RETURNS. EXTRA HERALDS. We will publish to-day, between two and three o'clock in the afternoon, an Extra Hkrauj, con taining the first returns trom Pennsylvania of the Presidential election, which took place there yes terday. These returns will be of vast importance. It is highly probable that the different party prints and party offices ni ly issue, in the course of the morning, with their reports; both parties claim ing, as usual, the victory. In the extra, with the intelligence which we may receive, we shall give au accuralo and philosophical opinion on the pre*, ent aspect of tiie contest, and the probable result that may be expected in Pennsylvania, from the returns that may be received. It is possible that i ie^e returns may be of such a character as will ena ble us to predict to a certainty who will be elected i*r? iih-nt. whether it will be Mr Clay or Mr. Polk, if so, we slitn ?ta?? ttur opinion with per t-it impartiality, truth, und determiMMou It the three o'clock extra should not con tint sufficient information, we may probably ubtish one at six o'clock in the evening, contain in; the desired information; and at all events, the Sunday Herald will undoubtedly contain important re.sultd And through the whole day on Sunday, as ? ion us we may receive intelligence from any quar ter calculated to throw light on this extraordinary content, w<" shall immediately issue an extra with authentic intelligence, and correct and philosophi cal conclusions therefrom L t the news-boys prepare themselves for extras during the next few days. And if the public want corr. ct information, with impartial and well ma tured opinions formed on that information, they must look to the Herald extra. We have never de eeived the public, and we never shall deceive them. The Grand Democratic Torch Light Pro cession. The locofoco torch-light procession last evening was one of the grandest, greatest, roughest, wild est, and most original displays that ever took place in this country A full report will be found in naother column?but no report can pourtray its character. "It looked" as a poet said, "like all hell itself let loose, with Satan at their head and his hottest devils at their tail " In point of num bers, it was twice as large as the recent whig pro cession. Its political results in ordinary times would point to a grand majority of 5000 or 6000? l> it as the " natives" are in the field, with a fierce enthusiasm, and as much "fire and brimstone," no one r an predict with any degree of accuracy ;-0 we wait till Tuesday next. Approaching Close of the War. At length we are in sight of land. The presi dential contest commenced yesterday in Pennsyl vania and Ohio, and will be continued ? or several days to come, keeping this city and the whole country agitated for at least on< week longer. After the general result shall have j been ascertained, and Mr Clay or Mr. Polk elected, we shall all then return to puace, quiet, and re p (Be; and l>e enabled to turn our attention to all those various interests that will produce more real b -Befit to th? country, than the strange contest through which we have been passing for the last six months. Juat I ?: u^ looi? at the brief space of time we have thus pained over, for the traces that are left to mark its history. During the lust six mouths the country has been .ooaruised trom the centre uyite uttermost extremities, by a contest as fierce?as violent?as full of exhibitions of the bad passions ap any evei witnessed. We have seen, in vawousway^, during that brief space oitime, per petrated an many falsehoods, forgeries, violations of all decency and virtue, as might last a reasona ble people lor a whole century. The waste of time, the expenditure of money, the total loss sustained to (lie country, may be set down probably at half as much as the entire cost of the revolutionary war. And what has it all been ubout 1 The elec tion of un individual to occupy the Presidential Cb ur as die. successor of Captain Tylert As the mm in the farce says, " What a fuss about a bit of jH)rk!"' To the impartial spectator?to the nunc! that can coniomplnti- He past, examine the present, and look forward*to the future, all this contest about the presidency, and " the principles," as they are called, involved in it, has been a contest about non entitie < and absurdities. We are perfectly satisfied from every thing we have seen, during the last six month.', and from all that we can observe now, thai so far as the destiny of this nation is concern ed,it is a matter of very little consequence indeed, whether Mr. Clay or Mr. Polk be selected to in habit the White liouse. Un the usual principles of human action, Mr. Clay probably the best nun of the two. In consequence of hi* grea' public reputation, his eminent talsnts as n .-.?talesman, and his distinguished career in this CMiuitry, which is known to the whole world, he would be the most desirable man to fill the chair of the chiel magistrate. The attack ? made on Mr. Clay in relation to his private character,?the allegations urged against him as to duelling, gambling, card-playing, drinking, and various other vices,?we consider as the most pre posterous?the most unworthy?and the most un manly characteristics of any which marked the ? ontest in its entire progress. No dcubt Mr. Clay has his weaknesses?who has not! But he is still statesman of high character,?be is one, who, if le. ted, would contribute to the elevation and >rnanient of the Presidency) and who would, no acan doubt, manage the affairs of the country wi m great talent and a just degree of patriotism. On he other hand, if Mr. Polk should be ct I, although he is a man of inferior mental ? ibre to Mr. Clay, less known to the coun ? ar.'l to the world at large, yet we believe him a very honest, sensible, well-intentioned who would conduct the affairs of the ' ' ?" ? ! well; but who from his position, ? a Mr er/ ni other circumstances, would u\ m vei? ?*? p-? :<i. at as Mr. Clay would be. ? * We hive een, during the last fumr /**.r*, u%? i f ie u?e?t, aod political influence " a-r-.-miTJ for a President of ?he Urted Suui to poMrss. Captain Tylsr, W tho.jt a party to b?c* h.rn-with no influence ? ver ? with very little (?ub.ic reputation in ad titru e?a .-sailed by the factious of both parties? ttiyped of all personal and political influ i" Y't been a very good President, ?. i-i I*-'.- r the laws, institutions, and public opin oa rf it ct 11 try, has managed extrem-ty w- Il ia i it ie j* rtectly evident, notwithstanding all the rtdit ulo'M i r -* of the partisans of both sides, that this country in its grand movement to n great here after, is not to be a fleeted?is not to be changed- ] is not to be thwnrt'-il in th- least degree by the tri wnph or defeat of any party, or any candidate on any occasion. The agnation, tumult and hubbuf Wound us, marking the progress of this great coun try in its Presidential election, hair?' no more ef feet on its great destiny than the Iretting anil fumngot tho angry billows, as they beat upoi th r" ks oil th ? sea-shore, have n(>on the laws <11 nature or the destiny of the earth itself. Whoever, therefore, is elected President, fee ii Mr. Clay or Mr Polk, we shall be perteclly hub lied, and more ihdfl satisfied; because with the ter mination of the contest, we shall have quiet and 1 repose; aud tune to attend to the varied interests of the country, literary, religious, commercial, finan cial, and every other. During the uextfour years, we have said, and we expect it, we shall have more prosperous times, and make greater advance* in every thing that constitutes civilization and na tional greatness, than ever we have made in doable the time heretofore. All the elements #f civiliza tion, affecting the social, religious and commercial interest* of this great and mighty community, are only awaiting the termination of this Presidential contest to leap forth with a vigor and intensity, that can onlv be likened to the speed ol the steam engine with that of the old lumbering vehicles drawn by horses or oxen, in which onr fathers journeyed overbad roads, full of obstructions and impediments. Let us, therefore, rejoice that the prospect of having a President of one kind or ano ther, is so nigh at hand; and that whoever be elec ted, the prosperity of the country is certain?the dissolution of the Union impossible?the re-an nexation of Texas unavoidable?and better times than ever certain. Thr Abolitionists?It is very amusing to ob serve the movements of both parties upon the abo litionists, and the attempts which both are making to conciliate that fragment of a party in the present contest. The locofocos are endeavoring per auade the abolitionists to stand by their man, Mr. Birney, anil to *???? J?ini. thereby hoping to sub tract from the whig party a sufficient number of votes to defeat Mr Clay. Oil the other hand, the whigs are endeavoring to blow up Mr. Birney, on the ground that a secrct coalition has been formed between the locofocos and him, and by that means hoping to diegust the abolitionists with their own candidate, and lhas get them back to the whig ranks. The various means employed by both parties to accomplish their objects are amusing. The loco toco journals state that Thurlow Weed and Edward Curtis, the ex-Collector of this port, are out in the western part of this State on a tour of observation, with a large fund of money collected in Boston, which they are distributing in every county where any chance of getting the aboli tionists to abandon their own ticket. If this be true?which we wonld'nt venture to swear to, for they lie so dreadfully of each other, these party prints, thut we can't believe the one half of what they say?it is the best movement yet undertaken by the wings for the purpose of aiding Mr. Clay.? It is impossible to do anything in these days without niouey. if the Boston manufacturers have $'100,000 to spare, we do not see why any oae should object to tfieir sending it into the interior ot this .State and scattering it there. Thurlow Weed has had a long experience in making bargains of all kinds, and Mr. Curtis, with less experience, has probably as much good-will, as much diplomatic talent, as Thurlow. Indeed, if any two men can make a good bargain with the abolitionists in the interior of this State, these are the men, and cer tainly they can't do it without money. So much on that point. Another very funny thing is in relation to the " natives" of Philadelphia and this city. It seems both whigs and locofocos have just discovered that a great deal depends on how the " natives" vote? i thing which they never dreamed of till we told thein so Well, both p;?rti?-s?the Clay men on the one side, and the Polk men on the other?are now desperately at work, trying to c 'tch the "natives" iu Philadelphia and New York. The locofocos get up what they call a " democratic native" meeting in the Park, but unfortuuately lor them it turns out a failure. On the other hand, Senator Archer, of Virginia, accompanied by Jo Gales, of Washing on, h?3 been in Philadelphia with a letter from Mr. Clay, in which he offers, in case of his election, to ,>ut the Custom House under "native" control, if hey will vote the Clay ticket; aud they also say that Mr. Archer is now in this city on the same errand. Now as to this matter, we don't know whether it it is true or false; y?t there is something probable in it, although it is quite as likely to be a lie from beginning to end. But if only half of it be true, it is the best mode to get the "native" vo.e yet devised. We area trading people. Nothing can be done without the dollar, or some equivalent, ff we cannot offer money, we must offer stock, and if we can't offer stock, we can offer office. So then if Senator Archer offers the control of the Custom House, and all the ap purtenances thereunto belonging, to the "natives," ou condition that they vote the Clay ticket, it will do more to accomplish that great and desirable end | than any thing yet done. It is thus quite possible I hat Mr. Clay may carry this city by a large ma jority, and at all events, if the stitemei.t be true which we have given, it is clear that political trade not declining. All this discovers the extreme closeness of the contest. Both parties are engaged iu ull sorts of schemes, plots, conspiracies, and contrivances to catch the abolitionists, the natives, and every fag end of clique and faction which can be found in the country. It is a mere haphazard who is to be elect ed President. Strangers in the City ?A number of political Grangers of distinction are in the city at present; not so much, probably, to give a particular direc ion to party movements, as to look on and see what is passing. We perceive that Joseph Gales, Ksq , the editor of the National Intelligencer, is here, with his family. Mr. Gales has long been before the public as an editor, and was at one time he only reporter for the newspapers in Washing ton. If Mr Clay and the whigs should succeed by the aid of the " natives," Messrs. Gales &c Seaton will probably be made printers to the next Congress ?rather singular, when we recollect that Mr. Gales is a foreigner by birth, although he has spent three-fourths of his life in this country. Another stranger here just now, was Senator Archer of Virginia. It is stated that he was here on imission relative to the " natives." With what success he has met as yet, we do not know. The Latk Proprietor of Prosi-ect Hall.? Mr. Nowlan, the gentlemanly and popular proprie '<>r of Prospect Hall, has sold out that establish ment and retires Irom it altogether. We trust that he will not continue in retirement?as it might be called?for uny lengthened period. No one who has had the management of such an establishment uj that which he has just disposed of, ever gave more satisfaction to the public. Mr. Newlan was first selected by the Harlem Rail Road Company, on the opening of the tunnel, to occupy that house, and Ins management of it from first to lust has been successful and creditable in the highest degree. His entertainments to the Corporation and other public bodies?his uniformly courteous attention to his guests?his unostentatious hospi tality?his remarkable tact and gentlemanly de meanor, all rendered his house one of the most agreeable and favorite resorts in the neighbourhood of this city. We trust next spring to see Mr. Nowlan once more in a situation where his talents ind experience as an hotel-keeper will again serve he public. Naturalization.?Since the April election there ave been naturalized, in 'tie Superior Court, 768; n the. Court of Common Pleas, up to last evening, ibou1 577; in the Marino Court, 707 The latter ?'?urt still remains open for the admission of appli cants. The probable accession of new voters, it s sup, osed, will amount to between two and three hnusand. We shall peblish an accurate return of be actual admiisions,since the last spring election ?j? to Monday evening next, and in the meantime i p jrt the daily returns.

The contemplated torch-light proces*on of the democratic party of thiscity came off laat evening, and it exceeded in poiut of numbers, enthusiasm, and excitement any political procession ever made in New York. The evening was beautitul, the sky serene, and not a breath of air to extin guish a light or tear I banner. At about dusk the martial notes of preparation were heard in almost every street, and the hurrying of horses aiid horsemen to and fro to gather in the line with the several divisions, betokened an im mense turn out on the occasion. At about half past 6 o'clock the line was formed, preceded by Elijah F. Purdy, the Grand MtrsBal. The side-walk" along the inter; ed route of the procession were crowded with pedestrians, and the windows of the stores and dwellings filled with anxious female spectators. Numerous houses, hotels, stores and dwellings were most splendidly illuminated and decorated with flags, banners and devices of every description end invention. A mounted escort, led by the Independent Polk Club, headed the proces sion, followed by the Empire Club, which turned out in its lull force, including several hundred horsemen. Then followed the liberated Martin Luther, and Rhode Island Delegation, Empire Club of Brook lyn, Richmond County Associations, Newark Delegation, Young Men's Central Hickory Asso ciation, ana Hoboken Club, that closed the first di vision. The second was led off bv Mounted Es cort Young Hickory Association, 12 Pioneers with torches, District Band: White Eagle Club of the City of rfew York i wh?i? Kuule Ajiillery; 1st Ward Democratic Association* ; 2d ward Demo cratic Associations; 3d Ward Democratic Associ ations: 4th Ward Democratic Associations; 5ih Ward Democratic Associations. Then came the third division, preceded with pioneers and torches. Johnson Association; Gth ward Associations, led by the Silas Wright Club, Young Men's Hickory Club, Young Hickoiy As sociation ; 7th ward Associations, led by Ironsides Club, Van Buren Hose Co. No. 26, Black Joke Fire Engine Co. No. 33; 10th Ward Associations, led by mounted escort and Engine Co. 15; lOih Ward Hickory Club; 13th Ward Young Hickory Association ; 13th Ward Democratic Associations; German Democratic Associations Then followed the fourth division, ulso led by the Stage Drivers Association; then the Polk Wright (City Club); Sth Ward Young Hickory As sociation ; 8th Ward Democratic Association; 8ih Ward Hut-End Coon Hunters; 8th Ward Empire Club ; 8th Ward Wright-End Coon Hunt ers; 9tli Ward Young Hickory Association ; 9th Ward Jackson Empire Club; 14th Ward Young Hicknrv Association; 14ih WurdWhite Eagle Club; United Associations of Democratic Republicans, and Democratic House Carpenters, who numbered seveial hundred. The Sailors turned out in large numbers, pre ceded by a ship made of hickory poles, and com pletely rigged and manned by a jolly crew. The Pilots made a splendid display, and exhibited sev eral beautitul models of their skimmers of the seas, and various banners and devices. The boat men of Whitehall andStaten Island made a strong show with several beautitul models and boats fully manned with crews in uniform. _ . . The fifth and last division was comprised princi pally of democratic butchers,who presented a most splendid appearance, preceded by three hundred mounted on grey horses. Then followed the 11th Ward Coon Hunters; 12th Ward Democratic Re publican Associations; 15ih Ward Democratic Re publican Associations; 16th Ward Democratic Re publican Assoniations; and 17ih Ward Democratic Republican Associations. The whole line was interspersed with banners and devices ot every kind and description, among which we noted Free Trade nr.d Sailors' Rights?Thomas Wilson Dorr Stato Rights?Where's that Konst Beef 7?No U. 8. Bank ?Thin Ping was at the Battle of New Orleans, 8lh Janu ry, 13l? : Major A. Davezac?Texas?The Sisr of San Jacinto shall glitter on our Banners to-night: Remember Dorr?Albany Basin Ruttleia : Sound the trumpet, beat the drum ; Tremble. Hay, we come, we come-We've Sot the boy who toll'd the bsll, To toll the Coon* their funeral knell?The Widow of the murdered Ciiley has at last fallen ? We oppose the Whigs because the Whig* are favorable to the British?Germans by accident; Amcri cans by choic? j Democrats by principle. The number of horses and horsemen in the pro cession was unprecedented, as bv accurate count they exceeded three thousand. The time occupied in passingtuay given point was three hours, and ihe whole number of persona in the line, excluding musicians, was twelve thousand five hundred, and thirteen. Fireworks were exhibited at almost ? very point in the streets, and the shouting, the screaming, the Drummona lights, the torches, tec rendered the whole scene one of the most exciting and peculiar that ever passed off in this city. The ladies appeared to vie with each other in demonstrations of favor, as handkerchiefs, towels, pillow cases, sheets, and every thing else, that looked like white muslin, wjis waved from the windows and balconies as the procession passed The whole afiair terminated without accident or collision, an f notwithstanding such an immense gathering, at 1 o'clock this morning tn-city ap peared restored to its usual quiet ar.d oidtir. The whole allair reflected credit upon those engaged and the demonstrations ot enthusiasm and feeling evinced a disposition on the part of the Democracy io make a most determined rally in this city for Pelk and Dallas. Sai.e op Shawi.s.?The sale of Shaw's at the Apollo Rooms, yesterday, went off apparently to the satisfaction of all concerned. Th? articles of t'ered for sale?all of course the most choice and rare of their kind?were hung around the room the ladies walked around it, sat around it chatted around it, debating whether blue, green orange or crimson should be esteemed as the most novel, recent and fashionable of the primitive colors ; whether Timbuctoo or Tartary, Cashmere or Candahar produced the finest shawls, and teve ral other legitimate topics. The bidding was not keen, yel uniform and free A great similarity prevailed in the quality and styles of the goods, and the prices obtained, in most cases varied little. About twenty dollars was the upset price, and that obtained was, for the.most of them between thirty and forty. A few went off higher but many more, again, brought^no more than from seventeen to twenty-five dollars. The bidding was not at all confined to the ladies ; there were not lew smart competitors amosg the male portion of the audience, but whether they were gentlemen " of the trad"," or deputed by their ladies?whether they were doing business on commission, or on their " own hoek," doth not appear. It is, how ever, ol noj. consequence; the shawls sold pretty well?no questions being asked as to where they came from?whether from Persia, Turkey, China or India, and of course no remarks made by Mr Ludlow upon such a foreign topic. One connois sieur we overheard remarking to his neighbor that ihey smacked of Paisley, utid smell like Londou nut,the catalogue, on the other hand, said they were tiom the dominions of the Gr at Mogul and the Cham of Tartary, fiom Hyderabad, Astrabad, Jel laldhad and Bagdad ; from Persia, Ilindostan and the territory of that super-excellent Oriental sove reign, who proclaims himself Brother of the Sun Cousin of the Moon, and King ot the Twenty-four Umbrellas. Nearly all the stock was sold, but there was great anxiety manifested to continue at the prices, which may be regarded as very little, it any thing below the value of the shawls sold ; and it is very likely that another sale-of shawls?Cashmere shawls, mind?is not very far distant. Success trade. U. S. RkVENVIC PaoPKLLKR JbFrXRSON.?Th iron steamer, destined for Lake Ontario, is now ready lor launching sit Oswego. She was c instructed un der contract with Chas.

It is not intended to gel I. r ready lor sea until next spring ? Jllbmny Mlui. BmUmbI MdrcM wt or. Suvmi, *eW Vork Medical College, Croat*? K, There was a very numerous and highly respect able attendance in the principal lecture room of this institute last evening, to hear th eSesaional Address of Dr. Steven*. Among those present, were a considerable number of ladies, cheering, with their presence, their children, brothers, and friends, in the commencement of their atudiea for an arduous profession. Shortly after the hour appointed for the com mencement of the business of the evening, the principal officers of the institution entered, and each was received, as he entered, with a strong expression of approbation. Tlia Rev. J. Knox opened the proceedings with prayer, Dr. Stbvkns then came fervard, and *u received with approbation. The geutiaman commenced bis address by observing that now, ior the first time, they had assembled together in the of the authorities of the college, 111 pursuit of their high end holy calling. He was afraid that he should not be able to do it that justice it merited. He wished to impress those who were about to ent>r the profession with a true idea of its dignity. The class the previous session did much to their credit, as well as to the officers ot the Institution, and he thought he could promise as much for them thiii Session. He hoped that all were well acquainted with the classics; those who were would 6ud it much to their advantage, as it would afford them great facility in understanding the different terms made use of iu the profession ; but the best and most vsluable of all studies was close observation and the well we.ghing ot every lact that was laid belore them : without this the whole of their studies wonl 1 not be half so valuable to them. No matter, how hard they labored, they could leara much from others but more from themselves. In every respect they must be in mind and conduct gentlemen well acquainted with every topic of the day. 1'hey should bear in mind the conduct of Zeuo, who, desirous 01 knowing ti e best way of living .cousultcd the oracle thereon, and the Delphic replied " Study the Dead," they would he obligtd to do so although lor somewhat j difierent purpose, and by perseverance and industry, they would uever want bread. The gentleman proceed ?<T to tiiiiw tbui m.dicine whs as much a science os any other known, although, net based ou fixed rules. The aducation required lor tho profession was the discipline of tuo mind ?, a great amount ol knowledge did not so much tend to this,as personal inquiry and investigation of 1 ue different laets laid beioro them. The gentleman pro ceeded to treat oa the comparative value of oral and boek information, showing that although valuable in some re spactnots so much so as personal observation and the study tiy comparison ; and said it was necessary to get as much -?s he possibly csuld from other* and books. But the best book of ell was the book of nature ; for tho rest they were to look to the other sources. The great fault in ed ucation. was that of treating on things before the articles themselvej were presented to t: e students The gentle man illustrated tnis part of his subject by the system now adopted iu ous best schools lor children, iu present, ing before them the object and then explaining to them its nature and qualities; for instance, he said, take (he ease of a pleurisy, upon which volumes had been written, and the student could glean more information in me interview with a patient subject to this disorder, ihan he could from the reading of numbur* ot tieatises. i'lutarch did not learn by reading, but ^by observation : such would be found more particularly neccstuty in the case of medical stud.nts ; and those who only studied books would {And that when they got a patient, then it was that their learning began. The gentleman proceeded to show how frequently he had met with such cases in his own practice He then proceeded to show how much better it was for the student to take some common cases, and study them well, and not too quickly, to widen their sphere, because if they did so he would only gain a superficial knowledge, which was the most dangerous of all; they should first take the micro scope and the telescope ulterwards ?their knowledge might be more limited, but It would be more certain : love of novelty might make them new patents, but would not tend to their benefit. He was ever ready to defend the profession, but could not support such proceedings 1 hose who were given to experiments never raised them selves 111 the profession, and were injurious to tbeir pa 'tents. The gentleman proceeded to show the value of cunioal instruction, and stated that a gentleman had been appointed to give lecturesfon this branch during the present session (approbation ) He next proceeded to treat on the value of the study of comparative anatomy. He begged to address a few words to the senior rethren of 'heprofession. The legislature oi this state had thought proper to open the portals of the profession somewhat wider than formerly, thereby they fancied they were in jured or disparaged in public estimation : but they would allow him to say, that it was, or ought to be, the object of legislators to study tie interest of the mass, not that, of this, or any other I i?roif?sioi); and if it did throw on society a number of ignorant men, it was a fact that bad surgeons made I ?iiore work lor good ones. (Approbation and laughter.) If the profession was only true to themselves thev need iot fear anything else, for by your superior capabilities you will receive a greater amount of success. Much of the evil at present existing was owing to themselves, in ipening to others facility e at a small cost for entering into it, but it should never be said that such was the case m this institution ; it never had held out a lure for cheap irradualing.nar us long as he was connected with it, never should. (Approbation) We ask the support of the pro ession, and they would take car' never to overstock it with half educated practitioners. Those educated at this College, found thev could with greater facility pass the Vaval and Military Boards, no small desideratum to young n?u'. ?"J!8U,?tl'quent occasion, he would go more fully ?ntr. the different joints he had touched upon, and hoped what he had remarked upon would be found worthy of heir consideration. The gentleman theu sat down amid I strong expression of approbation. This ia but h meagre outline of the learned gen lemnri s excellent and talented address, which the pressure of more exciting topics at the present mo ment, prevents our doing that justice to it merited. The company was then invited to view the mu eum and other parts of the establishment, of which hey availed themselves, and appeared highly sa Msned with what had taken place. City Intelligence* Police Ofllce,N jv. 1? Intext to break Jul?About II o'clock last night it was discovered that cell No. 7a, a the and corridor of the City Prison,and which had been ? llotted to Jack Sullivan, the burglar arrested by Justice Vlatsel and officer Kelye>, indicted-Jwith Ireland, tor lresklng into the premises oi Messrs.

An alarm wa? at once given, and Mr. Cox, the lead keeper, sent for. Search was immediately made lor Sullivan in Iho yards, sessions room, lie,'tic j but he ;ould not be found. After considerable time had elapsed ? communication was received from the pirate, I! ,be, given from his cell, that Johnson, during the Uy, and who is one of the deputy keepers of he corridor had removed Sullivan from cell No. 7-2 to "?11 No. 84, as the inner door of the former had no latch .0 it, it having been broken ofl. No. 04 was then unlock d, and Sullivan found therein lying on his bunk, and >!r. Cex proceeded to search his cell, and there found uncealed under so ? e of the bed clothes, a skeleton key, wo files, a razor and a small saw ; a .d as there could be 10 doubt that these implements were surreptitiously oh lined to enable the prisoner to 1 fleet his deliverance and u evade the justice ot the laws, he was better see a red nd the im elements removed into safer hands.

Trinidad and CiKNruiaos ?We copy the fol owirg (rom the Caracas Liberal of Oct. 7. We isvo ! -ard to-day feaifnl accounts of the ravages of the ite g tie on the south side of the Island of Cuba. At Trinl lad and in its neighborhood, the gale was peculiarly 'voro, fairly uprooting the cane plant in many instance*, md in nearly all, destroying utterly the pUintain, coin, id coffee plant*. This loss comes peculiarly hard at this im" upon the pianttr, as thecrops at best were but indif r? nt, owing to the drought oi the past winter and spiing. i'he coming sugar crop of that vicinity cannot, it is said, i' even one hair of that of the past year. At Clenfhege* >nd its neighborhood, the gale, though very severe, has iot, we learn, caused the same amount of damage to the nther crops, as at Trinidad?neither had the cane crop been as severely injured. Pahiioiaihm iNTtM.idf.ic*,?A flood deal of in quiry is begioning to be madf in the fashionable circlet and amongst thefl/tle relative to the pros pect* of the ensuing winter, and what particular movements will occupy the minds, tongues, and 'fantastic toes" oi the "town" during the ap proaching season. One of the principal amusements of the fashion able circles will undoubtedly be attendance on the Italian Opera, which opens about the middle oi ihis month. The subscription to this elegant Amusement is increasing, and wo have no doubt will increase aa long as the gay world is aasurcd (here will be no difficulties in the company as heretofore; and that they will have a chance of tiearing soma of tho best opera* ' that have evsr boen produced in Europe, by a com pany that is now considered remarkably ^ood and well disciplined. The season is to com mence with Clara di Rotmbtrg, in whichMadame Pico is, we believe, to be prima donna?an artist whose voice is said to be of the first quality both as to extent and melody. We have not heard whether the ballet will be united with ihe opera dnring the season; but we think it would a great advantage to the company to unite a dance or a ballet of some kind with the opera, to relieve the monotony that might reign without it. Martin and De.jardins are, from the specimens lhey gave us the other night at Niblo'B, on occa sion of their benefit there, evidently fully compe tent to conduct the ballet. On the occasion to which we refer, a Spanish dance and the Polka were introduced, and received with great cclat. Another amusement of the season will, no doubt, consist in the new Hungarian dance?the Polka? at all the fashionable parties. We understand that M. Korponay, the Hungarian gentleman who first introduced that dance into this country from Eu rope, has now commenced giving lessons in this city; and we understand that the pupils in his class es already number one hundred or more. Huhas tiso private classes in various parts of the city, composed of the members of ssveral families,who mite together at their own houses and receive his lessons. Mr. Korponay intends, it#eems remaining n this country only till next summer. He expects o receive a pardon for his political ofiences, for which he was banished by the Emperor of Austria ; mdthe probability is, that be will return, in a year >r so, to his native country, Hungary, and there igain enjoy his titles, wealth and honors. It is, indeed, a singular spectacle to see a Hungarian nobleman, thus introducing into this country one of the beautiful dances of his native land; and re minds us of the Btrange vicissitudes of individual fortune, which marked the outbreak of the French Revolution, when Louis Philippe himself, and many other royal and noble imierdt from that land, were obliged to employ their talents in vari ous humble occupations, in order to obtain a live lihood. In Boston, Mr. Korponay was exceedingly ?veil received. He is not a mere dancing master; ind his position in society, and gentlemanly de meanor, gaiued for him the most distinguished narks of respect from the ilitt of that refined city. Ssveral complmientary balls, got up for him there, vere attended and casducted by some of the nost diitingui of the fashionable world in tiottou. These are some of the new elements that may \?e expected to enter into the movements of fa shionable society this winter. We shall, of course, lave, as usual, a variety of theatrical entertain ments, and other exhibitions of various kinds, -lltogether, we think that the approaching winter a New Yoik, and throughout the country, will be >ne of the liveliest, most agreeable, and most de ightful that we have had for years. All political ^purities will be softened down alter the settle ment of the Presidential question, and every one will return to the enjoyment of the courtosies and ileasures of refined society.

A kind of tranquility has once mere resumed its sway, now that Millerism has been exploded, al though politics continue to keep up a tolerable ex citement. On Tuesday evening the Whig Young Men's Club met strongly in the Tremont Temple, the HonorableC. F. Adams President in the chair. They were addressed by the Honoiable Robert C. Winthrop, the Hon. Rufus Choate, and Charles T. llussell, Esq. From the earnestness of tne speak ers, their sophistry of argument, and their philan thropic and patriotic asseverations, one unskilled in the craft of politics must have been cenvinced that Clay would inevitably "go in" by an over whelming majority. The demoeiats, not to be out done, assembled on the same evening in Faneuil Hall to the number ol nearly five thousand, and what with speeches from Col. Isaac Emery, Robert Rautoul, Esq.?the latter speaking over three hours?contrived to make their followers believe that the cause of Clay was without redemption, and that Polk and Dallas were as sure of election Ai day must follow darkness. There is a grand whig procession te night by torch light, but 1 fear the weather will destroy their perenutetic patriot ism. The editor of the Button Pilot is making himself very officious in political matters, and in stead of advancing the cause ol Catholic citizens, is deep.y injuring it. This same editor is not even a naturalized citizen, and yet he presumes to dic tate to native Americans now they must act in the coming Presidential contest. Is it not enough to cause the heart ol every American to swell with indignation?to cause cholerto assume the reins ol reason, and prostrate wit'i the dust every foreigu innovator upon the rights, principles aucf institu tions bequeathed to them with the blood and treuiure of their forefathers. The spirit of '76 is fast rising, and will not hesitate from clothing itself in the garments of mas sacre, if the Pope and his myrmidons do not cry peccavi.

He is an individual of the most honorable character; thoroughly conversant with hiB profession, and, above all, an author of no in considerable repute. There is but one feeling about him in Boston, among gentlemen, and that is, he is one. The Museum is doing a tolerable business ; Mrs. Barrett and Mr. Smith, once very spirited per lormers, are the favorittB here. I hope they will continue so. There is a mania at present very pre valent among our O. F.
