New York, Monde jr. April 14, IMS. Steam Ship Great Western. This stenm ship ntglected (or once to arrive on u Sunday. She is now in her sixteenth day. The Organic Aspect of the New Adminis tration it id how a little more than a month since Mr. PoJ^'s administration commenced its career. It is now taiily out on the ocean, and the President finds himself in a very different position indeed irom that which he occupied on the day of his in auguration. A vessel lying safely in her peaceful haven, on aline sun-shiny day, with all her sails ?et, and streamer floating quietly and gaily in the gentle breeze, is a beautiful object, and looks the very picture of security and repose. But when abroad upon .the ocean she encounters the gulf stream, and is tossed on the dark and roaring wa ters, now assailed by the fierce northwestern gales, and anon drifting it may belamong ice-bergs that threaten on all sides her destruction, the gul ant ship presents a very different aspect. So it ia with a President,or anew administration. As they sail quietly out of port, all is calm and serene, but soon after that comes trouble. Mr. Polk now finds that the winds begin to blow somewhat fiercely on the storm-tossed sea of the democracy, and the last gales from the old Connecticut indicate quite a breeze. One of the greatest troubles of tne new adminis tration appears to have arisen in the effort at get ting an organ. Terrible have been the throes which for the last month have attended the partu rition of " the organ." At last, the birth has been effected, and the administration felicitates itself on the intensely desired event. Well, there has been S3inething attendant on it really fortunate. The "old Kitchen Cabinet," which had lain so long amongst the pots, have been removed from that position, although they do not by any means, at present, " like dovea appear." The Olobe, with all its hangers-on, virulence, bitterness, rapacity and intrigue, hus been killed off, to the benefit of the administration, and the general puccess of the democratic party, whilst, fortunately, its de mise isTnot likely to result in any particular disad vantage to the welfare and prosperity of Alleghania. But whether in the organ that is to be, the admin istration will have that invulnerable tower of strength to (which they are prepared to flee for shelter, is a very different matter. What is the championship to which the defence and mainten ance of the administration are to be entrusted 1 The wisdom and types of two provincial party editors?one a very fanny man from the pleasant town of Richmond in Virginia, and the other a very respectable citizen from the thriving village of .Nashville, in the State of Tennessee. Pray what does Mr. Ritchie know about the di rection or government of the popular opinion of this country 1 Has not his whole past experience been limited to the narrow sphere of his party in Virginia 1 What knowledge does Mr. Heiss pos ess of the influences which govern the ebbing I and the flowing of the great popular tide 1 What ' opportunity have either of those gentlemen had i of acquiring that power of comprehensive vision, i of intelligent foresight, of ready tact, and of saga cious management, which would enable them to steer the administration safely amid all the shoals and quicksands of its four years navigation 1 The organ of a party taction ia one of the States may be very useful, very wise, and very facetious, but there are more things in the business of a government organ than are dreamt of in its philosophy. The truth is, an administration have but a slender reed on which to lean in a gov ernment newspaper at Washington. These "organs" are all but John Jsneses at best, of varied powers of amusing, like the Court fools of another day, but all pretty much on a par as regards the value of j their services. There has grown up within the last few years an i influence, which every day exerts a greater power over parties and the government itself. It is an in fluence which haH already encroached almost to the last ditch upon the dominion of the party or gans, which sets at naught the most cunningly de vised Echemes of mere politicians, which creates and controls legislation, and which no administra tion can successfully resist. That influence is the independent daily press in the large cities of the Union, with its immense circulation and its per fect freedom from all party associations or control. This is the only organ on which any ad ministration can safely repose its hopes of sup port in its efforts to carry on the government with fidelity to the public. So long as the national affairs are managed with wisdom, patriotism and energy, the independent press will be found the willing an<^ potential auxiliary of the general go vernment; and to the opinions, counsel and ad monitions of that untrammelled representative of the intelligence and patriotism of the nation, every administration should carefully look lor the means of sustaining itself, rather than foolishly seek to maintain its position by the aid of a hired organ, altogether inoperative on the masses of the people, and which can never be regarded in any other light than as the mere mouth-piece of a political faction. The great source of the power possessed by the independent press, and particularly the metropoli tan independent press, is its regular and systematic diffusion of intelligence of all kinds altoge ther re gardless of the effects on particular interests or par ticular parties. It thus wields a power commensu rate with that of truth itself. No digue?no party ?no administration can fully accomplish its selfish designs to the disadvantage of the general interests of the people,when its purposes, movements and in trigues are every day laid before the public eye. The ability to do this constitutes the great distinction between the party organs and the independent press. The great object of the party newspapers is to con ceal as much as possible,?that of the independent newspapers is to tell every thing. Thus, day after day, the readers of the Htrald are put in possession of political intelligence which the organs of fac tion may not have obtained, and dare not reveal if -hey had. Hence, however, the popularity?the uccess?and the power of the independent press. We mean to enlarge and extend to the fullest ^ssible degree the usefulness and value of the in dependent newspaper press in this communication of political intelligence. Heretofore the labors of reporters at Washington has been confined to the recording of the proceedings in Congress, and the squabbles, misfortunes and successes of office beggars. The action of the Executive in carrying out the laws passed by Congress has not been so carefully, minutely and regularly noted as it ought to have been. The daily business of the various departments has been overlooked, and it has only been by the casual development of some particularly important tact that the people have known what was actually the course of the Gov ernment. Now we mean to commence a system, atic daily report of the actual doings of the Gov ernment in all its departments. In this way the attention of the people will be directed from the paltry and unprofitable squabbles of intriguing politicians, to the action and practical working of the Government itself. Its good deeds, and its errors will be thus alike fairly exhibited, and the intelligence and patriotism of the re public will be able to pronounce a just judg ment on the claims of the administration. Wt shall in tnis way do the state some service, and do for Mr. Polk, if he adheres to his pledges, and conducts the government with becoming ener gy, wisdom, and patriotism, that which Ritchie <V Co., with all their facetiousness and philoso phy could never be able to accomplish. Noutver ront Circuit Court ?Judge Willard will preside in this Court until Judge Kdmonds returns from Cir cuit. The Civil calendar will be taken up this day. filVULl'KW C:rY OovxaittfMf .-The p*% organs t>f ifcc J* mocratic party, afe very loud in their declarations, that they Killed " nativeisnl" in this city- We perceive in the tVaiiiirngto* Globe, a long articU filled with the usual rhetorical flourished about the lute election in this city, which it characterizes as a purely " democratic triumph." All thia ia mere party slang. The independent press, acting ut e representative of an enlightened public opinion, which justly regarded with alarm the introduction of the foul spirit of religious intolerance, with its attendant feuds of persecution, cifil discord, blood shed and conflagration, and determined to expel it at once and forever, waathe power which rid New York of " nativeiam." Here the head of the monBter was crushed, and its members in Philadel phia, and other cities, are now wriggling in the agonies of dissolution. The " natives" in this city were dead and damned six months before th feeble democratic organs knew any thing about it. The Press, th* Bak, the Bench, and the Pul ) ,iT_We believe it was Dean Swilt who said that he could always manage to make a dinuer ott a ? Cheshire cheese, and that, when hard pushed for the subject-matter of a sermon, he invariably took 1 a Hing at Popery?he therefore called Popery his Cheshire cheese. The bar and the gospel in AUe ! ghania appear to regard the newspaper press as their Cheshire cheese. When our judges, lawye? 1 and divines are sorely pressed for a peg on which I to hang eloquent denunciations of the shocking im morality of the age, they take a fling at the daily press, and always,according to them, it is the ever flowing source of plagues, I Which werse than Egypt's land befell. Diffused make earth the vestibule of hell . All this is one of the best evidences of the salu tary influence of the prees. It is the great control ling power in society which prevents the despot ' ism of the priesthood, or of forms of law, and is 1 thus the great ally of justice and religion. Public opinion begins to regard this matter in the true | light, and the assaultB of judges, lawyers and di vines upon the Independent newspaper P'e?*? are ' pretty generally regarded in their^true light? ?? sound and fury signifying nothing " Affairs of the Pilots.-Wc are determined to give to the public all the facts we hear concerning ' the pilots of this city. They are a much abused j class, and we mean to set them in their proper po sition and keep them there. j Since the abolition of the pilot law, and the ! opening of this port freely to every one, our pilots 1 have had persons to deal with who are exerting i every means in their power, in a contemptible, un ' derhanded way, to injure them. If these Per80U8? ! one of whom was a commissioner under the oia law, and who feels spiteful and revengeful, because i we suppose he has lost a salary of #1,000 a year, would come out boldly, the pilots would not care a fig lor their enmity or opposition; the pilots are I not afraid of any legitimate competition; they arc above every petiy underplay. It appears that those who seem disposed thus to injure one of the most worthy classes of our citi zens succeeded only by falsehood. There now being no law regulating the price of pilotage, these mean creatures report to the owners and captains of vessels that the pilots can and will charge what they please, and will be extortionate in their de mands. I As this may hava an effect with some, we wish to Bet the matter right. We are authorized to state that the abolition of the law bo far as prices are concerned, is only a nominal affair; that our pilots will make no change in their way of doing business; that they intend to make the same charges; that they will cruise to some distance at sea; and that the captains and owners of vessels will scarcely be aware of any change in the law of the State. , . , if, after this, we hear any thing further of the mean intrigues to injure our pilots, we will give the facts and figures in the case, and then the com munity will have it in its power to tell whether the pilots are not more right than wrong. Health of the Ci-w.-The bills of mortality for ! the last few weeks have been so large as to have attracted a very great deal of public attention. There cannot be a doubt that a vast amount ol disease and death might be prevented by theadop tion and enforcement of proper sanitary regu lations. The location of this city is one of the most salubrious in the world, and the cli mate is remarkably good. With so many na tural advantages, and with such a means ol cleansing the city as the Croton water, New York ought to be the healthiest, cleaneat and most comfortable city in all Alleghania. But in consequence of the gross and criminal neglect ol the municipal authorities, this metropo is has be- j cornea bye-word on account ot Poisonous effluvia are constantly arising from the garbage and offal in the str?ets-the dwellings ol the poorer classes are dilapidated, over-crowded I with inhabitants, not ventilated, and abominably filthy?slaughter-houses and other nuisances are scattered over the most densely populated parts ol the city-and the Croton water, instead of dispen sing health and purity throughout every street and alley is shut up, and in many localities escapes from the pipes, and sinking into the earth, sends up noxious miasmata,'.canrying disease and death into many a dwelling. One of the very first matters to which the attention of the new Corporation ought to be directed is the sanitary condition of the city, and the adoption of proper regulations lor the pre servation of the public health. Thr Courier and the "Young Whios."?The Courier is now trying hard to eat up its abuse of Mr. Selden, and publishes long rigmarole articles about the necessity of conciliation and unity. It wont do. The influence of the Wall street press is confined to a few stock-jobbing diqvut, and cannot control the young whig movement so auspiciously commenced by Mr. Selden. We will, however, have some very amusing and interesting develop ments in the progress of the present contest, be tween the two uections. We are watching the quarrel, and will soon be enabled to give the peo ple some curious reports. David Hali m Trouble.?Our pious contempo rary, the Rev. David Hale, has, it appears, got into serious trouble with some of his female tenants.? He published the other day a savage article, calling for a repeal of the law making mal-contracts with a landlord binding, and referring to the particular case of a lady, whom he abuses in a manner very unbecoming a Christian. We very much fear that Satan has desired to have David that he may sift him as wheat. David tared badly enough in the hands of the Universalists, but we rather think he is now in the way of suffering more. Tirriblk Fir* at Pittsburgh.?We regret to give, in our columns to-day, the particulars of a most devastating conflagration in Pittsburg?the Iron City of Alleghania?by which #10,000,000 of property is destroyed, and perchance many lives lost. Pittsburgh was one oi the finest and most flourishingjeities in the Union. The loss by this (ire will fall heavily upon Phila delphia?more so than upon this city. Some of the property destroyed was probably insured here, and our merchants will seriously feel the calamity in the ruin brought upon those in Pittsburg. It is supposed that a great deal of the property de stroyed belonged to Miss Croghan?the young girl that was abducted by Capt. Schenly from a board ing school at New Brighton, a year or two ago. Trial or Klrim for Murder.?The trial of this man for the inhuman murder of the poor woman, in the suburbs of this city, by stabbing her, and firing her dwelling, in December last, will take place in the May term of the Court of Oyer and Terminer. The jury, very properly, have rendered" a veidict advene to the opintpn that the prisoner is insane. Tw-tntjr Kqnurd of th?' City In Kulnl? From 1000 to liiOU HoUMi Utitrojred Lom Katlmated at Ten Mltllona?LiOM ol Lives, die [From Pittsburg I'o?t, April 1!.] it is our painful duty to record one of the most terrible fires that ever devastated any city on thic continent. A great portion of our busy and popu lous town is in ruins! More houses have been destroyed by this single and horrible conflagration, than have been consumed bv all the fires that have ever occurred in the city before. Those acquainted with tha plan of Pittsburg will realize the extent ot the terrible calamity we nave suffered, when we state that nearly all that por tion of the city extending from Perry street up the Monongehela river to the city lint-, and thence to the head of the entire suburb called " Pipetowu," (Kensington) has been destroyed. Tha fire reached up Market street at far at thn south side o( 3rd street, and up Wood street as tar as the south side of Diamond Alley. The boundaries of the burnt district may be thus described : From Wd er street up Ferry to Third street, (the old Pr^yteriau Church wis saved,) up Third to Wood ; up Waolti Dianjni Alley, bjth sides; up Diamond Alley to 3 aithd :ld street, and theoce down Smithfldd to Fourth street,; buh sides; up Fourth street to Ross street, and theaoe to th*> held of Pipetown ; inoluling, as w? have aitimated above, about twen'y sqmres, and comprising from ten to twelve hundred houses ; many of the ware Uouiei onUinel go>di ot iramtmio value?they wore grocery, dry goods and commission houses, and their spring stocks had boon jus*, laid in. The fire originated in a frame building over an ice house, belonging to Wra Diehl, near the cornorot Second and Ferry streets. The wind was blowing stiffly from the northwest, though It frequently veered to other points, nnd owing to iti variations, the fire extended up Wood st. farther than it otherwise could have done. It was first dis covered about 12 o'clock,and was not materially checked till 6 in|the afternoon. Kvtn while we writo, at 9 o'clock, P. M.. the engines are playing vigorously in Wood street We can give uo adequate idea of the distress which pervades our stricken community. The progress of the flames was so fearfully rapid, thit many| persous had not time to remove their goods-others, again, had get their property into the street, when the flames seized it there, before it could be removed to a place of safety. Others, still, would not believe the devouring element could reach their dwellings, snd did not think of removing un til it was toe late to save their furniture. And we taw many people who escaped with nothing but the apparel they had upon their persons. At dark you might see, in every direction, families sitting without shelter, guard ing such portions ef their household furniture as they were able to save from the flames, snd not knowing where they would lay their heads, or procure a morsel of food. Of course the kindness of their more fortunate fellow-citizens did much to alleviate their sufferings,and we believe all were provided for a* well as the melan choly nature of affairs would allow. The councils met in the afternoon, and attempted to devise tome meant to ttay the conflagration. It wat pro posed to blow up housea that teemed in the way of the flames ; the deliberations, however, were ineffectual in results, and we believe but one or two buildings were blown up. It seems to us, indeed, that there scarcely could have been time to accomplish any thing in the way of destroying houses, so terribly ranid was the progress of the fire. There is abundant reason for thankfulness that so few lives were lost. There are many rumors of m-n being killed, and burnt and wounded -but they are not authen ticated. One women is certainly burned, and we saw a poor eld man tottering along with tbe help of two friends, his face badly burned. The loss of life, however, can not be learned in the awful confusion which prevails. We know not how to express our scnte of the lively gratitude to which the firemen are entitled from our afflic ted and ruined citizens, as well as those they have saved; nothing in the shspe of reward can compensste them for the incessant toil they had to undergo?and for the un yielding. heroic firmness, which they manifested under the appalling terrors which surrounded then on every si le. If they had a sufficiency of water during the whole time, they could have saved much more property?as it was they prevented tbe destruction of sn incalculable amount. The following are the principal public buildings, manu factories, and offices that were destroyed Olobe Cotton Fsctory, corner of Second and Fefry. Fire Navigation Insurance Office, Markot between 2d and 3d. " Firemen's nsurance Offico, coracr Market and 3d. Pecn Insurance effioe, ocrner of Market and Third.

The Monongahela House destroyed, with all the furni ture. The Monongahela Bridge, entirely destroyed. It is ru mored that several lives were lost on the Bridge. The Dallas Iron Works in Pipetown, entirely destroy eu. . The lot* (attained in the destruction of the above build ir.gs is immense, but it is small when compared with de- j struction of merchandise la the warehouses on Water, Wood, First and Second streets. The merchants found it impossible to attempt to save any thing; whole blocki were destroyed in a few minutes, and the most they could do was to make an effort to save their books, and but few of them succeeded even in that. (t will be many years before our city can recover from the effects of this dreadful calamity; it bas cast a blight over the commercial and manufacturing enterprise of hun dreds of our most worthy citizens, and in an hour haf awopt from them all the profits of years of toil and indus try. To their fellow citizen* who have been fortunate enough to escape this wide spread destruction, they must loak For aid to " commence the world anew," and we aie confident they wilt no: look in vain. We write in the hurry, confusion, and excitement of the terrible time, and under the physical weariness cans ed by laboring to save the furniture otthe house of ene ol the editors, which was burned to the ground?therefore, we may onslt much that we ought to notice?but we have endeavored to give as full an account ol the oalamity as we could. We are informed that two Uvea were loat at the fire yesterday. One waa an old woman in the neighborhood of Grant and Third streets, who had no aid to remove her furniture, and she refused to leave her dwelling until ii was too late to save her. The other that we heard of war a gentleman doing business in Wood street, but we hope it may be a mere report. We hear rumors of many lives being lost, but as none of the reports are authentic we refrain from giving them until we receive more reli able information. [From the Pittsburg Advocate and Gazette, April 11) At? o'clock, P. M., Thursday evening, we sit down to our desk with a sad heart, to record the most fearful cala mity which ever befell any city the size of Pittsburg.? While we now write, an awful Are is raging, consuming the fairest portion of our city, and no human being c?n tell where it will stay its ravages. It has now been Durn 1 ing for six hours, and confusion reigns extreme, and it cannot be expected we shall give anything like a particu lar statement of a calamity so extensive, and Involving such fearful ruins. What general particulars we can give we lay before our readers. The fire broke out about 13 o'clock, M , to day, in an bid frame shed on the east side of Ferry street, used, we believe, for a smoke-house, immediately surrounded on two sides with old frame buildingr. The weather wan ex tremely dry, and wind high, almost ? gale blowing from the west. The houses adjoining, on Second street, caught fire iss mediately. The engines at this time began to play, and had there been a sufficiency of water would have subdued the fi e. But from want of water, and high wind, the fire extended aoross Second street to the Globe Cotton Factory, which, together with a dwelling adjoining, was consumed. The Third Presbyterian Church was on fire, but was saved with great exertion. The fire, also, about the aame time, extended across Ferry street, to the west side, where it oonsumed seme ?i* or eight dwellings, when it was stopped in that di rection, the wind being favorable. But it was east of Ferry street where the fire rageil with moat fury. It Immediately extended towards Mark et street, sweeping every house on both sides of Second street, and the whole square liounded by Maiket, Ferry, Second and Front atreets, except one building, the wart bouse of the Cotton Factory. In the square bounded by Market, Ferry, Second and Third atreets, every building was destroyed except the Third Church, and Johnston Ii Stockton's printing office, and the American office. The square bounded by Market, Ferry, Front and Water streets, was saved, with but little injury. The fire crossed Market it Front street, and then be gan to rage with awful fury. This was about 3 o'clock P. M., and the wind had increased to a perfect gale The fire absolutely appeared to dance from root to loof, and in an incredible short spuce of time tha threa imaiei.se squares, composed mostly of warehouses, bounded by Market aad Wood, and extending from Third to the river, were in a tea af flams. The heat by this time was tremendous, and the wind blowing a gale. Wood street farmed uo barrier at all. The flames went hissing across, as if eager for their prey. They alsa crossed Third street, below tha rost Office, and wont rushing up Wood street across Fourth?and Wood street was a rea of fire from the river to Diamond alley ! But this was not all; tha fire had become ungoverna ble. The arm of man was impotent. Kvea tha goods re movad to tha streets for safety were seized upon and de stroyed. On, on, marched the raging element. A sea ol Aame rolls on from Wood street to Smithfield. The Mo nongahela House, that noblest of modern hotels, is sur rounded with flames ! It takes fire ! Still the ruin rolls on?crossing Smithfield and Grant streets, sweeping Scotch Hill entirely. Kvcn the Canai does not step it,?the Gas Works take fire, and directly all Kenfingten is in dimes ; and the fire roll* on, and is onlt stopped in that direction, about one mile fiom where r commenced, from the want of food to feed its voiaclou? maw. In the mean time, the Monongahela Bridge has taker fife, and is entirely consumed^ Tha Pittsburg Batik suppoaed to be fire proof, extending from Third to Fourtl streets, ia in flames. The Mayor's office is alio on fire, and the new Post-offlcu is in great danger. Let any one who is acquainted with Pittsburg stirvej this scene, and look over the exit nt of ground coveted b> this vast conflagration. So rapid did this fire piogre?> th?t at one time, between four and five o'clock In tin afternoon, the fire was raging with undiminished fur) over a space extending, beginning at Maiket street, cor uer of Third, down Market street to the river, up tin river to the upper end of Krnsington or Pip^own, eppo site to Birmingham, down from Kensington to Fourtl itreet, down Fourth itrect to Smithfield, up Smithfield t Diamond alley, down Diamond alley to the large brick warehouse on Wood, across Wood, extending in a diagc ? nal direction towards the Bank, up Fourth street to tb> Mayor's office, and across to Third street, the place of beginning.

Wrkck op THk Swallow.?The Albany paper? of Saturday contain iurther particulars of the dreadful disaster to the Swallow. There Beems to be blame attached to all con cerned with this i 1H a ted boat. She has now been under water five days, and no eflort ?,?<|e 'lo although it is supposed that several bodies are y lUTheCmore we hear'of thia shocking affair. the more culpable appears the conduct of William Burnett, the pilot. . [From Albany Journal, April 19.] tin company with a large number ol our e?U?na, we went to Athens yesterday, in the steamer,Sandusky, for the purpose of examining the wreck, and ??e selves la to the position of toe ill laUd SwaUow. We I,... rarelv looked upon a more appalling sight. The rock upon which the Swallow struck is about|l* feet high and some 40 feat long by 80 broad. On the >nner or west side there ia a thin sheet ot water .perhaps four rods across, which at low tide a man ca-i easily wade. On tho oilier or eastern side of the rock the water is deep, the channel running within a rod or two. Looking to the south the rock is juat iu the lino of the Athens docks, distant about fifteen rods. To ihe north, however, the channel incline* somewhat to the westward of this range. The entire bow of the Swallow rests upon the rock, her stem being 30 l'eot above the water's level. The whole of tho alter Dirt of the boat (say BO to 1C# feet) is under wa ter. This include* the ladle*' cabin on the main deck, and a f?w of tho itate-rooms on the upper deck. The gentle men's cabins below are, of course, full of water. Tho Swallow lie* with her head pointing in shore, making an angle with the diiection of tho channel of some 26 do ?m*. If the rock had not been there, the Swallow,from the course she was taking, must have run iw higk and drv on the Athens shore. It has been said that the Swal l?w was not in tho usual channel. This ia an error. The Atheus or wett channel, i* much tho most direct, the widest'and th" deepest, and is always preferred by steam ' boat* which do not land at Hudson. It has also |)oen*ta ted that the second pilot was at tho wheel when the boat struck This is equally n mistake. We had it yesterday from Mr. Burnett'* own lips, that ho took the wheelabou. six mile* above Hudson, and was at his post when the dis aster occurred. He can give no other nccoontor ?nla nation of it, than the night was so dark as to deceit* him as to the lay ol the laud. He states, however, thtt he could ?ee thelifbU on ihore. A wide difference of opin on exists as to the rate at which the Swallow wai going when she atruek tho rock. The engineers, firraeuanj niiots aa we were informed at Athens yesterday, al swore* before tho Coroner's Jury, that the boat was not aolnr much over six miles an hour, when she struck, fr. man oan look at the wreck with the bow forced nea: ly forty or fifty fact up on to the rock without an instant and unchangeable conviction, that her speed must have been very much greater than thia testimony makes it out Alter all, however, the heaviest charge remains to be brought against tho proprietors of tho boat. Five njght* and u many days have passed since the aecident oe cu red, and tho Swallow still remains with the Ladles Saloon and main cabins entirely under water. God only knows how many human beings hare found a watery o-c ave within these narrow limits. The lapse of every hour will render it more and more dj^utt to WenUly the bodies that may be found. And yet nothing has been d me to raise the sunken hall. Not ffflSo the ilia boat has been seen near the fatal spot. Even tne captains and hands of the Swallow, (with the exception ot Burnett, tho pilot, and two others) have abandoned her, and gone off to New York to fit up another ^at whksh is to take her place. Many persons are still at Hudson and Athens endeavoring to ascertain the fate of missing wla '?sal or friends. No traces have been discovered ot Oon Mather's liule boy. A letter, received in this city yester 4j ikam n rminv ladv ibo was drawn from the river about 15 minutes after* the Swallow strack, states that iust after being washed off the boat, she was ctoped vfotims A large number oT boats, however, are con stanUy employed In dragging tho bottom for a mile or more below the fatal rock. TFrom the Albany Advertiser, April 12 ] We stated yesterday that of the | assengers saved from by the Hoohester's offioers; some of the Swallow s ratseii "rhiW-Hoflwt..aain, 10of.Ln' eriafcaaa isvsaassa^v <*?S city, and commenced running in 1886. The Normal School at Albany.?A good deal of disapprobation is expressed by tha enlightened friends of education, with reference to the mux pected curtailment of the appropriation for the Normal School at Albany, by which the ntility of that institution will be greatly impaired, and its success retarded It not rarely happen*, however, that objects of State endowment, which cannot in terest mere partizan influences, thus suffer, whilst hundreds of thousands of dollars are squandered in the most corrupt and profligate manner. Often, too, party politicians take occasion in sue h cases, to make a great display of their very tincere desire to economize in the public expenditures. We, hope, however, that the ftient's c I the Nor mal School, will persevere in their t flurta to sus tain and extend the agency of this invaluable in stitution. The people of this State cheerfully con tribute a heavy tax for the purpose of supporting the public schools, and the benefits of that expendi ture would be incalculably increased, were the science of teaching properly cultivated. Good teachers can be made only by the instrumentality of Normal Schools; and we trust, therefore, that the experiment commenced at Albany, will not b* permitted to fail. Funrral Sermon on thk Latk Dr. Mimioe?A discourse was delivered in St. George's Church, yesterday forenoon, by Dr. Stone, on the death of the late Rev. Dr. Mtlnor. The church was so very full that fully one-third of the congregation had to stand during the whole service, and a gren* deal of feeling was exhibited as the preacher dwelt on the exemplary life, the piety, and uee fulness of the deceased pastor ; nor was the shed ding of tears confined to the female part ol the au dience, for several hard featured and stern looking men joined in the weeping right heartily. Owinp to the crowded state of' the church, our reportei could not get a place within hearing of the preach er, although he made several attempts ; he even went so far aato ash the Sexton, whos* prim and dignified look made it a forlorn hope, but he wai inobdurate?the press ol the crowd precluded an) attention to the public press, and his habits ot disposing of the dead beirg rf such an abet rbiiif nature, he could not find a moment to acconimo date the living. The public have lost the pleasurt of reading a good sermon, because the Sexton ol 3t. George's happened to be in a disobliging mood. Dr. Milnor to be taken and the Sexton led I ih? ways of Providence are inscrutable. Our Packit Ships?We see it stated in the New Orleans Picayune of the If h ii. slant, that th' Iramatic line of pacKets, Siddons, Rowiup, Gar rick, and Sheridan, are for sale?terms 01WO,O#O This may or may not be true; at any rate this if the first we have heard of it in thin section. W? lo not believe the statement, and hope it is not true. If, however, these splendid packets are 10 be sold, we trust that they will paw into as good handa as they are now in. ?Topflight at this hot!#, will fathw io|Pth*r & brilliant asaeihblagg at intellect, beamy, and fashion. Antigone, with the Ladjr of Lyona on the same night, is, indeed, an attractive bill, and will afford the benejiciart an opportunity of diinlay ing, the vemtility of hia power in the antipodean characters Dinneford made a great move when he secured his services as Btage manager. Miss Clarendon also increases in favor, and report speaks of her Pauline?which character she will sustain this evening in addition to Antigone?as a very clever performance. Nickinson, late of the Olympic, is engaged by Dinneford, an excellent ac tor ; he plays Col. Damaa thia evening, and we ex peot n very finished representation of that charac ter. This is the last night but one of its perform ance, and we assure those who allow thia opportu nity to paaa without seeing Antigone, that they have missed an intellectual treat seldom oflered to the citizens of thia or any other city. Italian Opera.?DeBegnia is full of his project for the establishment of Italian Opera in this city. He has an agent in Italy collecting a troupe, and we understand that he has concluded his bargain for Palmo's theatre. Grand Ball.?The repetition of Mr. Parker's exhibition ball comes off this evening, at Niblo'a From the preparations made, and the number of tickets issued, it will doubtless equal any of the splendid affairs of the kind previously conducted by this able master. Theatricals, <lto. Ye-Wang, the celebrated Chinese juggler, who recently arrived in this country, make* a display of hit abilities at the Apollo Saloon thi* evening. He ii said to be extraor dinarily clever. The Boaton papers stats that Signor Rapetti's Conoert on Saturday evening at the Odeon was a perfect triumph in the musical art. The houte was highly respectable, in character and in number*, and hia reception warm and cordial. The performance* throughout gave the most entire satisfaction. Movements of Travellers. The number of arrivals yesterday were not in proportion to those ot the past week; however,there were sufficient at the principal hotels to show that the tide of visitors is flowiag from distant portions ot the country, for whom, many of closer ap proximation have made way.

The dreadful catastrophe at Pittsburgh, bas filled all the Southern residents at the hotels with sor row, and anxiety for further information upon a ca lamity that haa annihilated, nearly, the enterprising spirit of the merchants and artists cf that rising city. Although the shock may be felt here, and severely too, by insurance companies and others, yet it is to b>e feared that Philadelphia will have to encounter the largest proportion, in every sense ot the term, of the losses. Pittsbuigh was, emphati cally, the ?* Sheffield" of Ameiica; and, as we have learned from those who are familiar with its rescurcea, interested in its prosperity, and sanguine in its successful progress, time only was wantiug to complete the analogy we have adopted. As no further accounts have reached us from the scene ot the " Swallow," we are Jed to hope that the worst has been revealed. Such is the i pinion of all we have conversed with on the painful sub jsct. City Intelligence. Fiar.?About half put nine o'clock yosterday morning, the centre of the melting house and soap manufactory, of J. Bnohan, 19a Elizabeth etrott, was discovered to be on fire. From the combaatiblu nature ol the articles with whioh the building, a wooieu one, was filled, the Himo< spread with great rapidity ; bat were checked for some time from breaking through the roof, in consequence of its beirg tinned. Considerable alaim was entertained for the surrounding buildings, som? of which were melting houses, and those on the oppotice side of the street; but the timely arrival of several hose companies, aud four or five engines, well ?manu"d. prevented the fl irons trem spreading, confiuing them to the building where they originated, and a stable and left at the back, which were entirely destroyed. Had >t not been for the pronptneis and energy of the different engine and hoie companies, assisted by the invaluable Croton, the whole block son siating of about sixty homes, and several on the opposite fide of the street, would have been destroyed, ana pet haps some of those in the Bowery, as mtnv of tbo sur rounding buildinga were molting bouses, work shops, filled With very combustible material. The dam if e doi,e was said to be about $10,000, $0,000 of which is coveird by insurance. Police OfBce? Vpril IS?The 8uppoibd Accomplice rr Babe?Attempted Escape fiom ths Citv Prison.? Nothing further has been elicitcd in relation to the nun supposed to be the accomplice of Babe, to establish bis identity. His appearance tallies almost exactly with the deacriptioas that were given ol him at the lime of the pi racy, but yet all old rfalts that have soen some sir vice would answer to pretty much one description. A circum stance transpired lu.it night, which adds to the belief that ho Is the man. Hefwa* confined in the female department of the city prison, and during the night a noi*e was hoard in his cell by the night watch, and on listening, he wan heard cutting away tho mason work into the arijtining cell. Measures were taken to prevent him from accom plishing his evidont intention of escaping. He had sue coedtd in making something of a hole,anil it is a very easy matter to cat through the divisions of the call in conse quence of the wrasched manner in which the pils'.n Is constructed. A large knile was found upon him and taken away. As the adjoining cell was empty, and nensoqnoRt lr unfastened, it would have beon no very uiiilcult job to walk oat of the prison. It misht have been n< coesai y 'o come in contact with the night watch of the p-ieon. but coming upon him unprepired, it would notkhavo nq'iired muo'a exertion to d< prlve him of the power of preventing the escane, and the man who would e>cape from a piitoi, withou' knowing with what he wjs charged, (the very f. ct showing guilt ol some sert,) would net hesitate much about tho ways or means, so long as lie conid hocompl sh his end*.
