THE CHARTER ELECTION. I'tirr unj Irrecoverable Over: If row of the ?' Native" Party! Crushing Defeat of Mr. Harper !! fltr. UttVi mrj tr elected Mayor by a Tiemen ilnui .llajorlly !t! l'"e clec'ti.n iq tins city?(lie most peaceful and < iderly electiou that lias ever ukeu place?has re sulted in ill ? entiic, overwhHmiug, und utter rout 01 the "uu.iye" party. It ia a regular Waterloo detent. Mr. Harper lias been ejected from the Mayoralty with u degree of unanimity perfectly un paralleled in municipal contests, and every vestige ot " uativeism,' weinaysately say,has been swept trom the government ot this great metropolis of the Union. Mr. liavemeyer, the candidate of the democracy has been elected by a large niujority, whilst Mr. Selden, according to the most accurate eeccuQts obtained lost night, hud polled neatly ten ihousand votes, being double the vote obtained by Morris Franktiu last year. litis result has demonstrated, in the most con clusive manner, that the energetic, manly, and in dependent course of Mr. Selden, has been already < rninei.tly successful. He, it is, indeed, that bus crushed the narrow-minded, bigoted nnd intoler uut "native" party. He bus effectually re-organ ized the whig parly on the original pituciples of the Constitution, and the results of the movement or iginated byhirn in this election, will be seen, he tore this year lias passed away, in developments, ot which many now may not even dreant. "'Nativeism" is dead, ft lias been forever crushed andjannilnlated by the intelligence of the city of New York. Thank lieaveu, it may now, with all its intolerance, bigotry, proscription, im becility nnd treachery, be renteinbtred with "the things that were." Seldom, if ever, has there been witnessed such u universal uprising of the great masses of the people for the purpose of cxprest ing their indignant disapprobation of any Body o! men as that exhibited in this city yesterday, iu thr utter overthrow of the "native" corporation, from Mayor Harper down to his mouth-piece, "Colonel Snow," the police officer. The imbecility, folly, aud utter unfaithfulness of the members of the Common Council had prepared everybody for the news ol their ejection from the places which they have so grossly disgraced, but many supposed that Mr. Harper stood some chance of retaining his position. He has, however, also been dismissed?going out of office with a still greater majority than that by which he came in:o power. He may now consider himself, accord ing to the reasoning of a worthy Dutch Governoi ot thi9 State, the " most popular" Mayor that the city of New York has ever had?he came in with a large majority, and he went out with a much larger majority. The locolocos will have a sweeping majority ir both branches of the Common Council. Let then take carc. They may depend upon it, that unit s they give us a good city government?carry out all necessary reforms?and discharge their duties ii all particulars wiih zeal, efficiency and fidelity, t.ieir tenure of office will be as brief as that of the " natives." The day has gone by when the muni cipal government of this city can be converted to the mere purposes of a faction. Independent pub lie opinion has grown up to be an all-powertui ana controlling element here, and the parly in power cannot retain it unless they do their duty.? " Nativrism" is dead and buried, but the new whig democracy is iu the field; and with the sig nificant lact before us that Mr. Seldrn has in s< brief a6pace doubled the vote given to Mr. Frank I'm, we arc quite justified in warning the now Vic torious party, that there is u formidable antagonist watching their movements?one that appears des lined to attain, before another year, overthftdowinp strength and influence. We have, indeed, now before us the prospect of an exciting aud interesting period in our municipal history. York City Selection. rt'Li. tot*. '*<3? -?Ipril 1844 Vrm Hk,e Xat.

Any attempt to describe the unparalleled ex citement at this notable democratic rendezvous last night, would be beyond possibility. On no oc casion have so many or any thing like the vasi concourse assembled in old Tammany before. Wiihin a few days stump orator? have spoken of the sleep of the democracy, of their then approach ing reveille; last night showed that stump orators sometimes speak the truth?last night exhibited 1 he democrats wide awake, and presented no bad idea of the general resurrection. Perilous was the journey from the base of thr stair case to the entrance of Tammany IIa.ll?ex treme was the risk thence to the platform. Ima gine a rookery disturbed by the discharge of the fowler's futil? or an ant-hill in commotion?or h coral reel rising liom the dark caverns of thr ocean, beneath the labors ol animated myriads What are all these to Tammany last night 1 Lucky is he who went, who saw, aud came away will whole bones. Taere is no use in attemp'ing to tell who werr there; the most accurate approach to fact will h? made by supposing that every body was present excepting those who staid away, cither by acci dent, or because they could not help it. A Presi dent was nominated about eight o'clock; but few had the luck to hear his name. Every one shout ed, talked. hurrahed; hut ot what whs said, suog, or shouted, not half a basket ol tbe fragments wai taken up. Amidst the din, tumult and tempest of voices, The PMiiomr (R. Morri*) announced the advent of a victory exceeding their moit sanguine expectation* (hurrah, hurrah) and he vu certain the returns, as thex catno, woull marvellously increase their hilarity ? (Cheers.) Native Americanism arose in a day, and vm buria 1 the next. Thank 14jd for all hia mercies (Tre mend nis uproar ) Mr. OruauHn, ot B iltimore,next took the stand.

At all even *. he heweved that, us they said in Baltimore, it wa, prudent not to crow till they were out ol the wood A Voter.?Will our friend give way a moment to heat the news 7 Mr. Q ?O certainly, sir.

National Hall. H-re the excitement in the early part of the rveiun? was very miens*. Ttte Hall wan crowded, ,ij Hie uuxuty with which the 'eprrte Irom the > artoui wards and dm nets were received was in descti'vable. The m-d amu-une part ct the htt&i ..cba was, that the successive r? pot is of the victori ous progress of J'jveiutyer were received tvitii load ana t-or'y applause, the one great feeling ol joy, the defeat of Harper uci '.hi: " natives," ov'-rcotuing fcr the moment tl.c tl?l puttizan feel in? against ihc loct fecas.

" Next year it will be our turn !" " Down with the natives !" " The Seventh Ward gone against Harper by lour hun dred !" " Hurra a-a a." "Give ii to 'em again !" "Three cheers for Dudley Sclden!" And suit went on until it was universally known that the locolocos had carried the day?then the crowds gradually dispersed, and by leu o'clock the Hall was deserted. Yet not a murmur was heurd?the overwhelming defeat ol the " natives" seemed to satisfy all, and with the consciousness that they had now a fair field belore them lor future con lest and iriumph, the whigs quietly departed from their head-quartets. Meeting of the Native Americans at tlie Vinej lean Hall?llcccpUoii of tlte Returns? Never say dir. About half-past 7 o'clock last evening the Native Americans assembled in considerable numbers at the new American Hall, corner of Grand street and Broadway, to hear the news from the various wards. The countenance s of all wore the appear ance of a belie! that the party was defeated, but they were in such a state that any favorable news served to elevate them to the highest point of fond anticipation, and any beCd news lo let them down again with the greatest despatch?like drowning men they were ready 10 catch at straws. Mm Jam?s Burns mounted the rostrum about 8 o'clock, and said mat without knowing the insult ol the election ] he rose to say u lm word* <o his native American brethren, lie did not knuw the leiultol the eleelion, hut what'.ver it nngiit be, he would announce that htnee lorih auil forever tie was an American Republican, (great applause ) He had seen the whins during the day goiDg hand in baud, and working shoulder to shoulder wi ll the .ocofocoa :o deleat the natives ?with the locos whom i hey had heretofore protested to hn'c wor3A thin the Devil himself lie had woiked in timrs pa*t lor the whigs, hand and heart, but he hoped the blood would ceait to flow in the heart, and that his hand might perish if ever he did again, whilst such men aa Dudley SeHen and Horace Greeley were leadiDg men in the ranks. He thought that Horace Greeley was an honest man a year ago, and would tell the truth, but he d d cot I think so now. (The gentleman then attacked both Mr Greeley, Seidell, and others, in no very measured language. News was received from several ol'the dis tricis of several wards, end soma was welcomed whh cheers, an t some with groans and in silence.) Mr B. then resumed bit speech, aud said that there was one ihiug to be borne in mind, no matter how discouraging the news was. Ho exhorted the natives to stand firm, and pass cue resolution?American Republicans are, and al ways will be?(lost in the cheering ) Mr B. wouldn't be Horace Greeley under any consideration?he had rathei be the meanest dog that runs the streets, than?(Voices. " News 1 news ! Here's more returns.' 8g ieak 'em out." The news was from the 1st district of the l7(h ward, and unfavorable.) Mr. B. then resumed, and called Dudley balden a mean, degraded, apostate renegade from the de mocratic ranks?said he (Mr. B ) hadn't seen his bed foi wo nights, aud cousi qoen'ly didn't feel much like speak ug -that it the natives were defeated, it was not by the lueofocos, but by the whigs aud locos, who hail taken iur another in their aims for the purpose of defeating hem ; but ihey would find that they had waked up the I wrong customer for if the whig party would come ou | again, the natives would give them a dose, (fries G I ' we will', we will! that'*ithe talk! give it to them.") uoih the old parties would rejoice, and the present de feat, if it was one, the Nrw York Herald would rejolc .tan (Tl.a Speaker was here very abusive and vimsent,) a d aber aome furtt er rema ks, stepped down, wb?c thire were loud cries lor De La Ree !

He called Mr. Brady, lor charging the natives with having burned churches led cated lo th? worship of God, a base liar, and a per jured liar, and said he was personally responsible, at an) ime, lor the expression. (Cries cf " He's a stinking liar ! ra! ha!)

Upon this jen lemsn's retiring, up stepped Mr. Burns again, und an ion nod that he had he?rd that at National Hall, when he returns wore announced showing a majority for Ha vemeyer over Hai per, three cheers were given, aud he accordingly proposed three groans for National Hall, which were given with great feeling.

Wf learu from Livingston & Co. that the steamer Cdi.t. fc-quue, while on tier im.-B.ige frcin ?Vibany to this city, was wrecked on Monday tveti If, r fight o'clock, by riiHintig on a ledge ot rock t.e?r Uj-'a n She had between three and lou< uu.iditd pabterigera 011 board at the time, but it L uppos'-d that all li?ve been saved. Tain s u Li let account ot the diesbter It came ner.r bring a terrible calamity, and we may )? te ar ot the loss of several lives. Much is yet in dub'. J. appears that three boats, the Swallow. Kocbestcr. and Express, were coining down the river i" sisiiii ol each other?the Swallow leading Hrr pilot, u cureless lellow, determined to kee| aluad, run with unchecked speed through a narrow paesjge i ll Athens, wheie a ledge of rocks bulges up from the river. These rocks arc plainly to be ?eei', and every pilot on the river is acquainted with their locality; yet, strange as it may seem, the Swallow run plump on to tlietn and immediate ly "broke her back." This occurred about eight o'clock. She lay on the rocks a few minutes before site begun to sink?time en ough to lull the lirsl alarm of the passengers ? Water, however, soon entered the cabin when her stern went down almost immediately. All her pas sengers rushed into the saloon When the watei teached the lires and boilers, it generated so much steam and gas, and sending up a lurid flame,couster nation spread among the parseugers, and twenty o thirty instantly threw themselves into the river? one lady exclaiming " My God ! my God! are wi to be burnt alive 1" By thtH time the Rochestei and Express were alongside rescuing the passen gers from the wreck, and small bouts trom the shore were picking up those in the water. Of the three or four hundred, the greater pot* tion were brought to tins city in the Express anc Rochester. We cannot ascertain positively that any lives were lost. Previous to the Rochestei and Expiesa leaving the Swullow, Mr. Pomeroy, Captain Squires and others, wadea iirough the cabins, bursting in all the state room, doors, but could find no one. And a colored won an states that several children, only, had retired., a id those she knew were saved. Among the passengers in the Swallow, wer? Senator Hard, who was slightly injured by a fall f Wm Davis and sister, of Albany?the former miss ing, supposed to have been taken ashore ; Mrs Conklin, ot Brnnington, also thought to be ashore; Mrs. Parker, otUiica, in charge of Mr. Mann, als< of Utica? she also supposed to have been carried ashore; Mrs. Hastings, elderly, of Troy, nearly drowned, but alive at the last accounts. Amongs' others now missing, are John Ashthon, of New Jersey, who was returning lrom Utica with hi amiable consort. Charles Sprague, of New Ro chelle, and daughter, from the Troy Female Semi nary. Anson Jones, machinist, of Peterson, N. J. and Robinson Thompson, of England. Daniel Webster war a pas-enger on board th< Rochester. In addition to the above, we have received & lit ter from Livingston 6c Co., which we annex;? Stlamioat Rochester, 10 e'clock, P. M. We left Albany al ? o'clock this evening, following ii the wake of the steamboat Swallow. Aa we neared Athens, opposite Hudson, wu observed that the Swallow was appaitntly aground, and aa ahe waa well on the we* ihore, we steered to the eastward. When close to her tier bell waa rung, but we were under too much heart way to coma to until we had passed some distance ahead although it waa evident to ua then that ahe waa sinking. Every elf jrt waa made to bring the Rochester about, bu being on the Hudson flats, with a strong northwest win<>. we were unable to accomplish it until an anchor could b. riggtd and let go, which enabled the boat to drill round <nd bead toward the wreck, iv.uch credit is due to Capt Cmttinden and his pilots. They mado every effort fo> til patch, but our anxieiy, and the cries lor aid oi the sul icreri ringing in our ears, made each moment seem ai iiour Ou coining alongside oi the Swallow we founr ner bow completely oat of water, high up on a rock, th boat tin.km in two. and her stein uud*r tbe water, which waa over the hurricane deck. Capt. Squire waa truly in command. " Ab !" said he, " my good lellow, this ia b> t ter thin Lake fc lie, lor heie we have the bettom, and I hope ell are sofo " The ladies'cabin waa about ten feei under water, and much anxiety waa felt lest some o> 'hern were drowned But trom enquiries made among re passenger*, 1 think all the ladies came upon tbe uppei deck and were saved. When tbe water came up to the fur naces, it caused the flames to rush out. and in the confu. ion m-.i.y thought that the boat wei on Are, and Jumped ovi > Dov.d, but we have every reason to suppose that all wh' did so r ere rescued. The evening waa extremely dark so as to r*qi'ire that the boats should be tun with let tbiu their usual headway. The steamer Express, which ?v ii at* . in the wake of the Swallow, got alongside o hut before the Rochester. Both boats remoiued aloni side until nil the passengers, and as much of the baggng i*ccuidbe got at. veru tnken efl'. Th?re was muc excitement on board tbe Rochester, and the hundre ready io udvtse, end 'ho many obstacle* in tbe way o ji tticg the boat about, rendered it a time of p cul ar em vrra-uim nt to her commander. The momeDt when i ,ra- stipp.tM d that the Swallow wa* on fire, waa, indeed too ei trial to Captain Cmttenden; yet h?t waa coo) *i)m. an I';ult,ctrd und conimandi d his vessel is such t manner a--showed that he is u man to bo depended upor in miy emergency. This disaster, which came so near being dread ful in ita results, was caused wholly by the gro* carelessness of the pilot of the Swallow. On hin all the b!am? rests; and we hope and trust that lh< proper authorities will not let this affair rest witi out a searching investigation. The lives of tht thousands of human beings who travel on tht Hudson, indeed, who travel all over the .Uniter States, ought not to be endangered and triflei with by the carelessness which has been displayed on this occasion. The ledge of rocks, on which (he Swallow struck, is well known ; and there is not a particle of excuse for wrecking this fine boat, or playing at " paw paw" with the lives of lh< three hundred passengers on board. Let the affair be thoroughly investigated. Additiohal.?At a meeting of those persons who wcrt passengers oa board the steamboat Swallow, on her pat <agc down the river, 7th of April, 1814, held on the laim ? vening, on board the steamboat Rochester, the Hon Gideon Hard, of Albion, was uppointed Chairman, anr he Hon. James Jarvis, oi New York, Secretary. Johi Painu, James Jarvis, Gideon Hard, Day O. Kollngg em Samuel Carr, were appointed a committee to recommcn4 ? uitable resolutions tor the consideration of the meeting The committee reported the following resolutions which were unanimously adopted : ? Resolved, That the steamboat Swallow, at the time o ?he happening ot the melancholy accident this c-rening ?u the Athens channel, was iunning considerably below her usual sperd, it being at the time verydaik, and th> ?now falling in such quantities as to render it vory difli cult for the pilot to discover the shores. Resolved, That Captain Squires, ol the Swallow, dur. ing the continuance of the danger to which the passen gers were exposed, conducted himself with a coolness anrt ? ell-possession worthy of all praise, and by so doing con trihuted essentially to the safety of the |K.S'engen. Resolved, That the thanks ol this meeting are eminent ly due to the Captains ol the ateamboatr Express and Ro Chester, ns well aa to the citizena of Athena and Hudson, for th'very prompt re'irf by which we were rescued.

Ju-t b**|oie the boat (truck, ib? .nginehad been (topped, '? ?l:e p.lat iltd not txactly know hii whereabout- ? rijf lore being very low, there were a great number paafeiigwrs, ao unusual proportion ot whom wrere ? mMes lr was mil twenty minims boiore any asai?t .tree whatever arrived; and, when the boats Irom the ?hare cam.- up, rh, y very wiaely remainet at the distance >i a rod or two, for they iierceived that the ateamer was last, and knew enough of bumau nature to retrlrzo that, lid they approach close to the wreck, the rw?h ol trem bling l'elluw beings would inevitably awamp th?m, and increase llm ultimate danger. But ibia precaution leuds to the greater fear that several lives have bean lost; for many jumped overboarJ, especially in that terrible mo ment when the boat was seemingly a abeet of flame amid ships, and no hope existed but in a trust to the chilling waters. One geutlemai., of plethoric proportions,opened a window of the saloon in the first agony ol alarm,

squeezed himsdi through with all his clothing upon him, on the Hudson side, where it is a mile to the sboro ; and it seems scarcely possible that he can have been saved Several estimable ladies, diligently inquired utter this morning, on board both the Rochester and Express, could not be found, and sad apprehensions are enter tained. As the berth list of tho "wallow was by no means complete, the lull extent of the loss onnnot be ascertain ed until it be known Irom many scattered and distant homes, who had probably trusted themselves to the fated vessel. There were several passengers from the West ern States. The awful scene exhibited to the sell-pos -essed observer many striking traits of human nature. In the very height of the contusion and dismay, on the upjier leek, when all w us darkness, the snow falling fast, the Doat sinking rapidly, wives shrieking (or husnands, sis lers for brothers, and children tor parents, and the accents of prayer best betllted the lips, the voice of a strong heir rted rultiau wus heaid even above the tumult, pouring volleys ot oaths at the poor agonized females around him, because of the emotion they exhibited. A gentlemau was hurtying up from the lower cabin, with difficulty -scaping tbe puisuit of the waters, and when ho reached ? he saloon he saw a husband hasten from a state-room be side him, closely hugging a valise,while his wife,with an infant In her arms, and another little child by her side, shrieked to him as he rushed away, never turning his bsad to view their fa)".?" Husband ! husband! in Hod's name, drop your valise and save your wife and children!" But he disappeared unheeding ! A gentleman, although As had apparently lost every thing, except the clothing oa his back, did not make an effort for himself until he had secured the s.fety ot that family. We rejoice to l>e able to offset so fitndish an exhibition of selfishness, with die energy of disinterested geueroait y. A passenger gave his little boy, about two years old, to a person near him to takecarr of, while be was looking for his wife, whom t<e found ; but upon looking tor his child and the person o whom he had entrusted it, they were no where to be 'ound and no account ot them was reci ived up to yester day evening Urrat tears are entertained for their safety The boat ia broken entirely open. The engine, tcc., may be saved, provided it holds together long enough to rai-e thern. But it is so complete a wreck, that a high wind is likely to break her entirely up. New Movement in Opera.?The statement which we originally made, that Fico and several others of the Italian artists had been engaged at Castie Garden, was correct, as will be seen from the announcement ol the proprietors of that establishment. De Begnis, indeed, positively de clined on the ground that it would be a woful de gradation of the musical drama to sing in the midst of whiskey punches, and brandy toddies, and sherry cobblers, nt the rate of twenty-five cents a night?that in fact it would be reducing the musi cal drama to the same level with the cheap and nastyShskspearean heroes andheroinesof the Bow ery and Chatham, which arc exhibited at the rate of a shilling a piece. It seems, however, that Pico, dignora Valtelhua, Sanquirico, Valtellina, and An tognini, have accepted an engagement. They are to sing three nights a week,when the rate of jidmis <ion will be fifty cents. On the alternate nights the admission will be twenty-five cents. This is a aew and very promising movement in the classical and musical drama, and we will see how it will ?ucceed. The spacious amphitheatre is to be fitted up in the most elegant manner, while the cellars ire filled with the mest delicious fluids, so that the audiences may be at once regaled with the choicest Italian music and the most inspiring mint luleps. De Begnis, in the meantime, is preparing to viait Italy, or to send an agent there,to collect materials lor a troupe, which, as we are informed in letters from Italy, can be collected on very reasonable | terms. Fashionable Dry Goods Storks, and Fase ionabt.k Shotting?There is a great deal t ..cillery ill the newspapera about a most eplendi establishment to be erected on the site of the ol Washington Hall, by Stewart, of Broadway, ft ?nous in the annals of dry-goods shopping. At cording to some descriptions, this new establisl ment will be a perfect palace, built of marble, an .a destined to produce " a revolution" in th -ysterti of shopping in Broadway. We would ac /ise all those prophets to beware lest they make false prediction. There is nothing so capricious a ihe direction sometimes given to, and taken by fashionable shoppers. We should not be at all sui ptised if the great flourish about this very eupeiio fS'ablishinent were to prove a false alarm. Wher an immense amount of money is expended on th decorations and eppointments ot a shopping est: blishment, high prices nre, of course, absolute) nects^ary to Busiain the business. We should ni be surprised if all the old stores in this trade o the other side of Broadway, who make no gret pretensions to superiority, such as the Becks, an others, from theirstrict attention to business, shoul maintain themselves in a much more decided pt sition than this attempt to " revolutionize" ih affairs of fashionable shopping in Broadway.

The Sequins terminated a most successlul en gagement at the St Charles theatre, New Orleans, ou the 15 h March. Notwithstanding the attrac tions of the French and Italian Opera, they drew crowded houses every night. They commenced an engagement for twelve nights at Mobile on the 17th and will open at the Park on the 28di instant The Italian Opera at New Orleans has not turned out so profitable us the opening gave hopes of Some uttribute the falling of! to changing (after the first fortnight) the nights of performance to those ou which the French theatre was open, while others account tor it by saying there is a split between the admirers ol the prtmadonnar; one party, perhaps the most numerous and influential, withnoldtngsupport wheu Ktcci is in the ascendant ?ihe other when Borghese assumes the lead liumor, with her thousand tongues, whispers that there is division behind the curtain, and that the difference of opinion in front originated in a pro fessional squabble as to superiority, between the fair cantatricfs.

The Classical Drama ?The Antigone war played last night a second time at Palmo s, anfl is a decided hit, and, was the city election over, will be acknowledged to be s?, by crowded and fashionable houses. What Sophocles wrote tor Athene 2300 years ago, still goes home to the heart and feelings, because the Creek pool's power is built on nature; the heart of man has still the same passions, and his life exhibits the same errors and contradictions; visited by the same retribution as of old; and whether the picture of these be from the hand of Sojrhoclts or Shakspeare, beittg true,we must be touched with the representations of the weakness of humanity, its crimes, its sufferings, its repentance, its remorse. Such are the features ot this classic drama : the characters are distinctly drawn, and stand out in strong relief. The tyrant Creon, the noble, pious, si if-sacrificing Antigone, and the ardent Hamon are well contrasted and brought together, and, let us add.we llsustained on the stnge. (Jr. Vandenhofl's Crcon is a noble performance; truly classical and royal His appearance and dress are characteristic and dignified,and hts posi'ions are studies for a sculptor. He contrived in the course of the drama to present a series of poses, conies ot antique statues. We had the Apouo, the Hercules, the Jupiter, the Laoconn This fast group was moB beautiful; it is presett ed in the last scene, wherr VandeuftoH, with an attendant youth on each side, in the agony of grief, Bssumes the position of the I Liocoon ia the well-known group with the two ] boys. Indeed;&ll the pictures presented in the groups, the effects were admirable; especially the closing tableaux, where Vandenhoff representing Creon overpowered and bowed down by the vengesno of heaven, whose lightnings flash oyer the heads oi his affrighted guards, with all the dignity ot classw Greece, draws his robe before his face, to veil tht agony that racks'htm. This was a happy touch of art; the idea doubtless was suggested to th? actor (who evidently has made the antique his study) by the recorded instance of the anctem painter, who, depicting the death ot Jphigenia, sa crificed before her father Agamemnon's eyes, hto the lace ot the snguishsstrickeu parent behind tin curtain ot the tent, despairing of achieving an ex pression equal to the occasion. Miss Clarendon, at Antigone, does herself grcat|credit, and wins well merited applause. Indeed, all acquit themoelvtt admirably, and deserve praise ; even to the guarot and attendants, whose marchings and grouping! are executed with precision.
