JVEVV YORK HERALD. 1 Ne\w lorlc, Tuc?iUy, lavnubrr 'id, 1841. l)r. PIm'i Lecture. We give in anothcj portion of our columns to. duy, a v^ry full and interesting report of one of the ???ties of lectures of the Rev. Dr. Pise ct this city, on the principal distinctive tenets or dogmas cfthe* Catholic Church, which has attracted so much at tention amongst Christians of all denominations in this country. Ptie subject is u very curious and interesting oue to the philosophical student ol re ligion and the history of the belie! and opinions of mankind. Besides, Dr. Piae treats the subject with a degree ol moderation and u commendable good temp;r, which are, we are sorry to say, rarely characteristic of polemical disputants. He cer tainly appears to be much tuore under the in fluence of christian charity-of that attractive ami subduing virtue which "suffereih Ion* and is kind"?than, for instance, Dr. Potts and Dr. Wain wrigrit even when they weie engaged in settling the all-important questions "What is the Church''"and "Can the Church exist without a Bishop V* These considerations have had weight in inducing us to report L>r. Pise with accuracy and fulness. Bu^ thr sut/ject itsell is really one of general in terest It is also one which is comparatively little understood by the generality of Protectant*, and evea amongst the C itholics themselves a soorf deal of mist and obscurity have settled ar nd thin dogma. There is certainly, at the veiv lira glance, something which strikes us as w jrthv ol all tenderness of regard in this veneration of tne saints. There is surely nothing in it to pro voke unkind and violent invective. Ii has its origin in that deep and solemn, and universal admiration of the good and the true, which, after all, will gush forth from the human heart, corrupted and depraved as it is. There is something strikiugly imprewive in this con^ecratiou of princes and peasants-of war riors and sages? of old and young?of the prelate the priest?the recluse?men and women of allclass es and countries-for what 1 For their devotion to God-for their adherence to the true faith dejpiie of alioppasition?for their inflexible attachment to religion, adhering to it at all hazurds-in defiance of faniine and the sword?of the cross and the faggot. W do not think much, then, of the head or henrt ofhim who laughs at this veneration of the saints Do we then mean to vindicate, wiih Dr Pise, the invocation of the saints 1 By no means. That is uuother matter. But it is oue that may be very easily settled. We have said that we do not regard the feelincs in which this practice of canonizing and invoking the dead originated, as at all worthy of ridicule or contempt, but as calculated to excite very dif fereut emotions. But the practice of praying to the saints in this enlightened day is quite indefensible. In the darker ages ol the past, religion was invest ed with a poetic romance, which appears in this day not altogether so appropriate. A practice, which had its source in commendable feelings of respect for eminently virtuous men and women and for martyrs who testified even unto the death to the truth they had espoused, became in the course of time, mixed up with a great deal of folly, superstition and priestcraft ? As the pure light of Christianity began, af ter the lapse of centuries, to be obscured by the darkness of paganism, and as generation alter generation of the professed followers of the evangelists diverged farther and farther from the simple tenets and simple worship of the founder of Christianity, the calendar became wondrously en larged?fabulous personages were admitted into the family of the sainta-the adoration of relics was introduced?miracles began to be p'lformed by the agency of bones or pieces of wood, or drops of blood mysteriously preserved for an age?and the veneration of the pious and virtuous dead de generated into n blind and superstitious honing- of ilie saints, ' and an idle and unprofitable practice of calling upon them for their in tercession at the throne of mercy and om nipotence. Yet this is the doctrine-the growth originally of tt poetic and nimus enthusium, but deformed awi vitiated in the course of centuries of darkness and error?which Dr Pise attempts to vindicate. This attempt is quite ridi culous. No intelligent Catholic believes this doc trine as Dr. Pise announces it. Instead of defend in? it, and endeavoring to prove it, Dr. Pise should restore the doctrine to its original and only tenable form?that of a simple reverential admiration for the wise, and good, and virtuous of past genera tions. We had intended to have entered on a review of the character of some of the saints in the calen dar, for the purpose of showing more clearly the absurdity of this doctrine?but that we must defer. It is, however, a curiously interestiag suhject and we moan, with Dr. Pise, to return to it again. Political Movements in New York ?To the eye of the casual spi-ctator all now appears per fectly quiescent in the political arena. The waters arc still and placid, unruffled as the lovely lake among the mountains, that lies sleeping in the sun shine and mirrors back the fleeting cloud. Bu. this aspect is something like that of a hypocrite at his public devotions. It is altogether d-ceptive 'I here never was such a troublous time amongsi the politicians of this city as the present I?trigu in8j~P'olt'ng counter-plotting?lying?scrambling tl -eing hither and thither?hoping?cursing?the trading patriots, the buyers and sellers in the s.iin.blea of politics, are in astate of indescribable excitement, confusion and anxiety. The great struggle is with respeet to the retention in office of the friends of the administration and the Calhoun men, who aver that without their aid Mr. Polk never could have been.elected; and pointing to the secret circular clique," and the disparity in the vote for Wright ami Polk, in this State, say ?h>ok on this picture and on that." We have some very curious and startling developments to make rela tive to these matters. Look out for singularly in teresting information from Washington in a day or two. Moans or the Sufpekers ?It is somewhat amusing to observe the wrig?Ungs of the discom fited whig journalists. The,r columns are daily hi ed with nil sorts of?? Jeremiad*" bewailing their defeat We are sorry, however, to perceive that a good deal of the old spirit of malignity, which we exposed during the course of the campaign, of which both parties were equally guilty, still lurks in the whig papers, who have not, it thus a,.pears y-t reaped the f?l| benefit of the mollifying and humanizing influence of adversity. Some ol them arc we see, making a great fu,s about a letter a! n W bRCn Wmten by a Ca,hul|c Priest named Flanagan, Pennsylvania, to General P rdon two convicts when he was made Governor which his reverence assured him he could ensure' by the exertion of his influence with ihe Irish As the m hi in the farce says, "Well, what of it!" All this, even if true, can answer very htile pur P?>se. The had better take our advise, and not meddle with the Irish, the natives, the aboli tionists, or any body else. Their policy is to stand still, and oy the exercise of the greatest prudence and discretion, take advantage of opportunities for future powerful action, which maybe presjnte'* to tnem soon enough_if?iey keep^sharp look-out.

Newspaper Licentiousness.?We noticed some days ago in a n?wspaper, recently establi?hed in Una city under the jutrouage of Mayor Harper and his associates in the corporation, a specimen ol brutality and lictutiousneM, in newspaper litera ture, that surpasses anything of the kind that we have seen for some time, fruitlul as the numerous newspaper sprouts that have lately sprung up on the soil of taction, have been in those staple articltB of panizin journalism. Well, indeed, 011 looking overibe whole subject,and taking a comprehensive view of the publications in which the Messrs. Harper have been engaged for many years (mat, we are not at all surprised that the organ of the Muyor and his associates, should exhibit very frequently the indications on which we have at present deemed it our duly to animadvert. Daring the last twenty years the Messrs. Harpers have published a larger quantity of philosophy, poetry, aud piety, original and selected, than per haps all the other publishing houses in the United States. They have indeed, erected, we may al most say, the publishiug business on a grand scalc in this country. And in this they deserve gteat credit and praise. They have been the means of circulating a vast quantity of uetlul and experi mental knowledge on all subjects, sacred arid pro fane. Th<-y have placed within the re.ich of the toilii/g millions in this free land, volumes ol ines timable value. But they have also been insiru mental in circulating a\ast amount of the most pern ^i'jus traeh. They have scattered Bulw-'s novels alnjj with the " Pilgrim's Progress"?.hey have sent over the land in the saute bundles the flowery sernionsof the pious and eloquent Rev. Jos. Hcrvey, and the equally poetic, but rutin r more stimulating tales of the Italian Paul de Kock ol a past age?Borcacio. They have dispersed in thou sands copies ol the sacred scriptures, in tci.sof thou, sands the immoral novels of the French school.? In tact, they have driven all the other publications of the " blue aud yellow literature"out of the field. In all this, have theae eminent publishers not bem the means of aiding writers of loose morality and unsound principles in demoralizing the public miud?in vitiating the public taste?in corrupting the stream of public thought 1 May not we look to this cause, for the origin of some, at least, ot the vulgarities and indecencies which are every now and then thurst beiore the public eye in the " or gan" of the Corporation 1 We mean to go into this subject at full length ?to review the whole of the republications issued by the Harpers good, bad, and indifferent?giving them full credit for piety and morality in publishing works for the promotion of virtue and religion; but deducting so much per cent for the evil produced by the printing, sale, und circulation ot works of a questionable character, or of unequivocolly per nicious tendency. We must also bring under re view the newspapers published under the auspices ot the Mayor and his associates, as they may very justly be regarded as part and parcel ot this great literary, philosophical, and religious movement of the age. Anniversary of tiie Evacuation of New York by tub Knolisii Forces?Grand Military Dis play.?Yesterday being the anniversary of the oc currence mentioned, there was a grand display of all the military force in this city. About II o'clock they mustered on the Battery, where they went through several evolutions under the inspection and command of Major Gen. Storms. They then marchcd down Broadway to the Park, the advance being formed by the 1st brigade of Major Gen. Storms' Horse Artillery, succeeded by the 38th regiment Jefferson Guards, under the command of Colonel Warner; followed by the 11th regiment, on the right ol which was the Light Guard, this company drew forth great admiration from their beautiful uniform and fine soldier-like bearing, their uniform much resembling that of Napoleon's Veteran Guard: the Washington Greys succeeded, followed by the 21 regiment, and the rear was brought up by the 27th regiment, a fine soldierlike body,of men. The Scottish Guard excited particular attention from its elegaut appearance. This is a fine company only recently formed, but promises to be tn a short time the crack company of theciiy. Capt. Tortley's troop of Hussars formed an escort toMaj?>r General Storms, and looked if nuy thing better than ever. After going through a few evolutions in the Park, the different companies marched to their several quarters; where many of them had prepared for them a beautiful supply of the creature comforts, which they found themselves in much need of after their four or five hours drill and march, in a cold north-west wind and a pretty sharp frost. At the Battery, some merriment was caused by the observation of a poorly clad "native," who said, " It's no wonder the English evaporated (evacuated) if the weather was as cold as this, and these boys were against them." The Second Company of National Cadets ? This company held its second annniversary meet ing yesterday at the Constitution Hull, Broad way. After the dismissal of the troops iu the Park, the Cadets marched to tfyeir quarters as above, where sn ample cold collation was provided for them, and done every justice to. Near U|ion 1()0 persons Bat down; Capt. Towbridge and Lieut. Cornell presiding. Among the guests present, were Maj Walden ; Capt. Heline, of the 1st Company ; Oapt. Haywood, of the6ih Star Company; Capt. Sherwood, < f the 7th ; Lieuts. Thompson, Poet, Melville, Bullwinkle, and Van Tuyle: Paymaster Burtonette, Jcc. After partaking of the bountiful board on the temperance plan, lea, coflVe, $zc , provided in true military style, the joke went round with the greatest good humor for a short time, when the company separated. The Ac cident on the Long Island Railroad ? The young woman hurt on Saturday evening by attempting to leave the cars upon the Long teland Kailroad at East New York, while in motion, re mains in the same dangerous state noticed by us yesterday. We are informed, upon enquiry, that the accom modation trains upon this road, going eastward, (and this accident occurred when going in that di rection,) invariibly sop at East New Y'ork, when ever there are passengers to be set down or taken up, and that they never stop going westward on ac count of the difficulty of renewing their motion on a heavy, upward grade?but make the stop for this point a quarter of a mile west, at what is termed the Water Station. "Don't Give up the Ship."?The committee appointed for the purpose of erecting a suitable monument to the memory of Capt. Lawrence, have obtained the assistance of the New York Sacred Musical Society, who have kindiy consented to give a concert in aid ol the funds for this desira ble object, which is to take place on the 5th of next month at the Tabernacle, Broadway. Then all will have an opportunity ot obtaining an eve ning's amusement, at the same time contribute to a very creditable object.

Do the Saints henr Prayers of the Faithful ? Should the Faithftl Pray to Them? What do th9 Fathers Say ? A LECTURE, Delivered In HI. I'l tcr'n Churcb, on Sunday Evening, Nov. tiltli, 181-1. By the Rev. C. Pise, D.D. Jit roue riling Ikmfme Ihe en'ing of Ihote thlxrt that are njfer-d it tacrific* unto idalt, we kn?w that on iilil it noth ing in Ihe world, and that llutt it nune nlhtr Owl bit1 one J-'or though lh, rr br I ha' are called gndt, whether in heaven or in eailli, |u? there be^odt many, and lordi many.) Hut to tit there it bu< one God, the Father, of whom are ??11 thing! and ice in him ; and o it lAtrd Je\ut Ckri%t,bu whom are all things, and we by him ?Cor. 8 c , v*. 4 6 6.' The Christiana of Corinth were surrounded by innumerable 1'dgans; and in order that they might be preserved from the worship of idols, into which the example of those around them waB calculated to lead the unwary, St. l'aul, in his epiatleB to them, takes especial csre often to warn them, in the most emphatic teiins, against this great fin against the true God. He repeatedly remind" d them thiH there wkb and is but ane God, and but one PiV.or, Christ his son; that in ihe in.dst ol the snerifici-s that v.vre oflered to him, whose throne was on Olympu.a, and the more htsmble riles of idolatry paid to the foresaw! Pe. nutes of the firrmle, they tvero carefully to abstain Irom any participation iu them?for to them there wpb only one ct of adoratioo?'he true God, end one mediator, through whose infinite atom - men" alone they could seek merry. The same truth the Catholic chinch inculcates every wh# rr. The same ministry which Si. Paul discharged in warung the primitive chiis'ians against the ldola troiis worship of the heathen, is discharged by the Catholic ministry at all tunes, and in every purl ol the woild. And, therefore, it i<* that I. whilst via dicating the ancient and venerable doctrine of the invocation Saints, earnestly call upon all my brethren to bewar??iu all their veneration paid to those Saint", to recollect that there is but one God, to whom alone ull wor ship is due; and that there is but one mediator through whom alone, and through whose passion and deaih, we have the. firm hope of escaping that peidi tion to which in cons< qtience ol our bio* v. e had been doomed ; but that ut the sam<* time we niny call upon others to intercede (or us. We are perfectly aware ihat there is hut one mediator, and that it is only through him that the prayers of eaintu avail. It is in order that this cardinal truth of chria'iuiiity may ever be impressed upon your minds nnd kept before your eyes, that we have over our al ars the of our crucified Saviour. When Ihe eye ol the Catholic fixes itsilf upon that image?when it dwells upon the crown of thornB that pierce his ven erable brows?when it fixes itself upon the nails that transfix his sacred handr?when it contem plates the blood that gushes from his aides- when it sees the wood of the cross upon which he expired for the Baivation of man, that Catholic feels that there is no other name under heaven given unto man whereby he may be saved. In my last lec ture, I believe that ] made elear and indisputable those two propositions; first,that the saints in heaven can hear my prayers, aud secondly, that by pray ing for me they do not derogate in any manner from the niediution or merits of Jesus Chri*t Now then spreads before me a great question?the question is, whether it has always been customary from the earliest period of Christianity down to our own days, to iavoke the saints 1 If I have proved that the saints in heaven can hear ine?if 1 have proved that their praying for me does not derogate from the mediation ol Jesus Christ, and if 1 can make manifest the proposition that it has always been customary, from the earliest times of Christi anity, to pray to the saints, then I believe there will he no difficulty in acknowledging that my ap peal from that sentence passed upon us by a con vention which denounced my church as idolatrous because she taught the doctrine of the invocation of the s iints, has been justified, nnd that the anath ema returns upon those from whom it proceeded ? It becomes mc then this evening to prove to you this proposition?that the custom of praying to the saints prevailed in the carlieat periods of Christianity?that it has alwnys been continued iu everf egn and country?in the Latin Church?in the sepiruted Greek Church?,iniong?t 'lie Jacobitfs? and nmnn^st the Nestoriaut?and that theiefore a practice whu h we ran Ira.,* up even to the days of the Apostles thenm-lves,? lor they prayed to the " angels,"? they inculcated, as I shall hereafter prove, the duty of invoking those who were the favorites of heaven?why then we shall be able to avow whether the Catholic Church is justly liable to the charge of idolatry.? St Augustine, whose authority will be disputed by no true Christian of the present day, laid down a maxim with which I would premise my argument. " There are many things," he says, which are not found in the writings of the Apos tles, or in the councils of their successors, and yet because they are authorized by the univer sal Chnrch, must be believed to have been communicated from the apostles themselves." This is in his llih book " on baptism," chap. vii. vol. xii. If then I can make it appear that the doctrinc of the invocation of saints has never been introduced by any particular council, but has not withstanding been received and practised by the universal christian church, then, according to the maxim of St. Augustine?a mosi venerable autho rity?I have every right to hold this doctrine, and practice this custom, the denunciations of our op i ponents to the contrary notwithstanding. Now, this practice ol praying to Ihe saints prevails at the pre sent day among the Jacobites and the Nestorians. this proposition must,however, be proved, and after 1 have proved it, then 1 will argue from it. Iu 1671 a Fiench ambassador was sent to Constantinople lor the purpose of discovering from thefountain head whHht r or not this doctrine was univer.-ally admit ted nnd practised by the separated Greeks. Meiho nias. the patriarch of Constantinople, gave the fal lowing decision, eigned on the 10th of July, 1G71: "We declare that Christians, praying lo the Virgin Mother of Gad and the Baints, do not derogate from the sutlerings of Jesus Christ." The Bame illustrious ambassador having applied to Junes, the patriarch of the Armenians, received this nn swer Ironi himWe condemn, as teaching an impious doctrine, those who say that the Virgin Mother of God and the saints, who are in heaven, cannot be invoked without doing an injustice to the mi diatorslup of Jesus Christ." Another am bassador from the same great nation, applied to Joseph, the patriarch of the Nestorians and lie declared as follows "We regard a<i unfortunate those who do nc.t pray to or invoke toe Virgin Mary and ths Sa nti " With rug ml, lb?n, to the proposition Ihat amongst the universal Chrietian church thi* pructlce ha* prevailed, there can be no question. Now, what t?rgu man! do I derive trom this Lct7 I derive this argument? that, therefore, tho doctrine i?n<1 the ciutom i f invoking the saints ii traceable for WacH into antiquity. It id not 'o tic imagined th>it the Greeks nnd Nestorians, ?epa oting from ihe Lit n Church, would have adopted the doctrine of that church alter their separation from it; contcqucntly the (ireelt* and Nestorians mint have Carrie 1 with them the doctiine which had existed prior to their Reflation from the church. Therefore this prove* that it was the universal custom and doctrine ol the whole church ol the Kast and West, st the time that these Greeks or orientals separated themselves from Ihe pale of the Latin Churcb. Then it seems to mo thst this truth is made clear tVt this doctrine, according to the testimori) ol ell in connexion with the see of Home, nnd of all Ihe ancient schismatics who had separated from that see, pre vailed throughout all Christendom in the I Ith century. Did it originate then 7 Who iu'roduced it 7 Tell me the author?tell me the council?tell me the part of the world iu which it was first introduced?tell in? the name of the great originator of this heresy?this idolatry. Can our opponents do this 7 'J'hey can deny i' They can call me very ignorant and very stupid for holding, in this the nineteenth century .Mich on old sntiquated dcfjrrsjbut can th<>y prove that it is repugnant to the ancient spirit of Christianity 7 Can they pro?e that it is contrary lo the s icred scripture 7 Csn they show me a text in which it is condemned I I have shown hundreds of texts in my hit lectuie which confirm ond vindicate ihe. doctrine. But I need not have recourse to declamation. I am with you in search of the development of the truth. I come to instruct those who believe, and to endeavor to ?hid some light nn on the darkness of thnsn who from educstion or prejudice. h?v# been led jo imagine that we are almost? tiiev wlllhsrdly in Iht Irchsrity ?? y that we are entirely? i lo'aters Thu dark thunderbolt of alleged idolatry h?s h ten '.Hen hurled ugain?t the b tth nn nt? ef our church, but th* boll has always fallen innocuously to the ground, and ?but 1 must not d< ciaim. Let us proceed with the argument. If I am accused of idols'ry in praying to the viiiats, I appeal to the name of Eu?rbiu? of Osarva, who flourished in the 4 h century. In his treatise on thr truths of evsngelical Christianity, hook xiii ch. II. he says :?"Plato observe* that those who nobly die io battle shall be venerated as heroes, Had their monumeuts ho re garded with enduring respict. Mow does this apply to the death of those friends of Ood, who are justly callrd the soldiers ol true piety ( For it Is our practice to honor their sepulchre-there to utter oxr prayers snd our voices, and to venerate their hlcise.t souls, and this we hiy is instlv done." The Catholic church of the present dsy does the same Kusr tins did not affirm that he alone did it. or that il wai cuttomaiy with .my portion of the Uithful who might have errtd from Ihe truth?hut be ssys that is the universal cuslom? " it i* our practice" to pray to the snini*. A nd ?o it is our practice in this day. Wo are therefore in communion with Kuiebins of Ceseres. But if l I* namn be not inffl. eient, I will appenl to another I a| pe?l to petfiani the mo?t eloquent father n' the Orrek church in the fourth century, Hi Chry*n*tom I a?k that venerable fstberot the Church whst wss the custom in his day Tell me, tbs it rustnmsry for Christians in thy day to prsy to the s?ints, ?r wa? the prsc'ice denounced t.y pure < 'itiitinn* a* idolatriu*?

And as the prayer of the juat man, which the acripture telia ua " much "does not dciract from the meri.a of the mediation ol Jpsiib Christ, so neither doea the uivocatioi:and prayer of the aainta. Thia is the whole simple doctrine of the in vocation of saints. But it ia said-- You do pay too much, veneration to the tainta. It is auperstitiou. and if ever there was a period when it waa necea ary for you to ?ruard thia superatitlon, it ia now, becauae we are lu a great republic and thia ia in the enlightened Jl?th century.-' All thia ia very true. But.becauao tbia li the 19th century and thia ia a great republic, must we discard an institution of Jesu* Chriat, and abandon an ancienf practice of the chutch? I will mawer in the werda of the Cflriationa who witneaaed the martyrdom of St roly carp Venerating bis relica, they were charged, even by the Pagans, with poying them uudue homigr. They said ?"Our aubtle enemy, t^e devil, did hla utmost that we ahould not take away the body , aa miny of ua wiahad. It waa insinuated that we shouid desertourcrucified master and begin to woiahip Polycarp"?and thia the Identical insinuation in the nineteenth century, m this groat republic, that we are deaerting our Divir.o Maater and worshipping Polycarp and the aainta. But thoy go ' Foolish men, who know not that we never can desert Chriat, who ditd lor the anlvution of all men, nvr worship any other. Him we adore a. the Son of God. but we show deaervid respect to the mnrtyrs and followers. H.

Grand Complimkhtarv Bali, to Capt I?aiah Kynders, Prmiuknt ov TUB Kmimhe, Ar Tammany Hai.l La? Ev*MNO.-The C narty last evening gave a grand ball to Cap*. llynder*, as a?mall acknowledgment, through hiro, otthe m*ny acta ol valuable service winch -h Empire Club had rendered them during the rec election struggle. As the Empire Club takes the lead in all fashionable movements, during the pre bent season, Una all ur could uot be otherwise i n of the most rtchtrcki order The at range iiku made for the occasion were very similar to that ol the grand ball of the Empire Club, which took p'.Hce a tliort time since. The arrangements were everything that could be desired. There was no'difficuliy whatever on this occasion as to the setting down or taking up of the different panics; as they arrived or depart ed all the horses heads were in the position the committee had directed. Several members of the Empire Club acted as police on the occasion; in which capacity they kept order most admirably, all thing* considered. At eight o'clockthe company began to ussemb e, aud notwithstanding tl>e opposition ol the Repeal liail at Niblo'f.and <it various other places, together <vith the coldness of the evening, a gveat number of f ur creatures came forth as lightly and gai y clad lor the occiuionas if they were aboutto enjoy themselves on the green bward on a summer's day, doubtless to the great increase of the demand for candy, lot coughs, coldn, <fcc., during the remain der ol the week. Some two hundred or three hun dred having assembled, dancing was commenced shortly alu r, by Lothiau'u baud, which occupied the orchestra, striking up a grand march. This wub followed by a quadrille ol some eight or ten sets ; this was succeeded by Spanish dances, Irish jigs, Scotch reels, waltzes, minuets and marches, to the number of some fourteen or fifteen, and ?'Kvimtj 0110 did foot it, foot it? Foot it right merrily," and then down they marched, in double quick time, to the supper rooms, where a bountiful sup. plv of all that was good was provided, and enjoyed with great gout by both male and female, at an additional charge of some lour shillings each, ex clusive of three dollars for the tickets of the ball. This was not bo on a foimer occasion when tickets were only two dollars aud supper included Ihe discharging ol corks, the jingling of glasses, the rattlingcf plates, kniveslorks, 4cc., were quite en livening, and appeared to be as well danced to as any other piece ol muaic during the evening. The intermission of some thirty or forty minutes having thus been most satislactorily enjoyed, amid the smiles of pretty faccs, the jokes, good, bad and in different, of would-be wits, the loud laughter of listeners, thedemandsupon, and the running to and fro of, a strong corps of waiters, made the scene one of great gaiety. After this the amusement of the evening was resumed, and was kept up to a very late hour, and the company gradually absquatalated, all apparently highly delighted. Italian Opera.-Last night the Opera house was quite crowded, and the array of beauty and fashion was very brilliant, picturesque and repeall ing. Every seat in the lower part of the house was occupied, and all along the walls, from the stage to the vestibule, was a line of gentlemen, many of them with white kids, and all dressed in the everlasting, universal black coat of the North American republic, so that when you took in the gay and cheerful and brilliant drees circle, crowded with fair women, elegantly attired, the whole look ed like one of the fine, well lighted up pictures ol the old masters, which you sometimes meet with hanging on the walls of an auction room, and set in a heavy black wooden frame. The dress boxes were also all occupied, and the uiV~ ^rwas al ...f ?.u filled as the.lower. . . the opera was Lucrtzia Borgia, and in it both the prima donnaB had their rolts assigned them? Lucrtzia, Borghise, and Maffto Orsini, Pico. Uoth were received with plaudits and the whole performance went off with great iclat. Signora Pico looked very bewitching, and was frequently overwhelmed with "bravos." Borghese acted with charac'eriftic spirit, and fully sustained her reputation. Perczzi and Valtellina acquitted them telves in a manner entitled to all commendation. At the close ol the opera, the plaudits were gene ral and enthusiaetic and the ciies for "Pico, "Borghese," "Pico," "Borghete," were loud and universal. At length Mad'lle Borghese appeared and was warmly greeted. The plaudits, "bravos, and calls for " Pico," were then louder than ever, and in a few moments the curtain was raised and Pico, Borghese and Perozai appeared on the stage and were very warmly greeted. The opera of Lucrtzia Borgia is to be repeated to-inorrow night with the same " cast. Mr. Henry Phillips.?This highly talented mu sician has arrived in this city, and sojourns at the City Hotel.
