Within the past two or three day*, the stock market has been very heavy, but prices have undergone no very material alteration. At the old Board to-day, Stonington fell off f per cent; Farmer's l.oan, J; Reading Railroad, i, Long Island, J; Ohio 6-a improved J, and Harlem, Norwich and Worcester, Vicksburg, Morris Canal, East Boston, Erie Railroad, Illinois, Pennsylvania S'?, and Kentucky 8's, closed Arm at yesterday's price*. The transactions at both boards were to a very limited ex tent, and the appearance of things in the street i* any thing but flattering. Business generally is very dull for the) reason, both in merchandise and in stocks. It is ?omething very unusual for the lower part of the city to be to quiet as it is now. Everything is stagnant, without the slightest prospect of a revival, until another season lets in. We have in fact the inactivity of mid-summer upon us in the second week in May. The money market i* comparatively easy, but there is a great want of opera tors, who have nerve enough to purchase in the face of the external difficulties that surround us. The advices from Europe by the Hibernia have had no other effect upon our markets than to weaken quotations for cotton, and as they spread over the south, will probably have tho same effcct on the markets of that section. The warlike movements of the government of (Jreat Britain do not have the effect upon commercial matters that ii perhaps Intended, or that they havo upon the minds of the com mercial c lasses at home. The Miniitry of England are, without doubt, perfecting a deep laid plan, which may burst upon us at any moment. The calm that im mediately followed the stormy debate in Parliament on the Oregon question, is portentous, and filled with mystery. To tho eye of tho world, the subject may aeom to slumber, but thoso that are deceived, little know tic spirits that wiold the destinies of the British ^oveni. nient. The very silence in Parliament upon the ^o.t.on. of Oregon and Annexation is daugerous, while the detar mined, steady and secret preparation and concentration of force at certain points, are sufficient to create a arm. The Guardian Insurance Company have declared a dividend of five per cent, payable on the 15th ,n?t.

Tte Madison Railroad Company have advertised fo contractors to put the remainder of the road to '"diana polis under way by the 24th of May.

Baldwin, of Connecticut, to the I ?islaturc represents the finances of the State to be in a TCiy flourishing condition. There was a balance in the Treasury on the 31st of March of $29,300.

The earnings of the prisoner, m the State prison for the year were $19,281 68, and the expenditure. $10 982 63, being a .urplu. of $3,302 03. The receipt, of the Western Railroad Company do not compare so favorably with la.t year', bu.ines. a. could be wished. For the weekending April 26, 1845, the re ceipt. from pa.scngcrs were less than the corresponding week last year. The receipts from freight were enough larger to affect the decrease in passenger, receipt., an show in the aggregate an increa.e for the week. For the week ending the 3rd inst., compared with the same week laat year, there has been a decrease in the receipt, from freight and passenger.. WiiTr.a* Railroad. .

The price of passago from Albany to Boston on the Western road is $6, which with thr?inciden tal cxpcnsos'on the road, make, the cost full $7. The p*s-a-o from Boston via Albnny in New \ ork can be made very comfortable for five dollars, by leaving Boston in the morning by the Long Island train, passage three dollar, and fifty cents, which arrives here in .ca .on for passengers to tako the .even o'clock boat up the river, arriving at Alhany by dnylight the next morning passago fifty conts?toinl passage four dollars, which with the travelling expense., would bring tho charges up to five dollars. By this route there is n saving of two dollars, and tho expenses of one night's lodging. In the summer season the passage from Boston to Albany, and ?ct vet,a. via New York, would bo preforred to tho other There i. not so great a difference in the charge, tor the transportation of freight, but the carrying trade between Boston and Albany is principally monopoliied by our propeller, and schoon-r.. It i. a great question among the stockholders of the western railroad, whether a reduction of fare would increase the receipts of the company or not. Tho high fare party are in the as ccn lancy and have the effraction, bat wo ore inducod to believe that the decrease in the receipts will prodace tome revolution in the affair, of the company, and compel them to adopt the low fare sy.tcm. Incvoryca.o where the experiment has been has succeedod ad mirably. Most of the other railroads of New F.ngland have from time to timo reduced the fare each time attend el with increased receipts. The Western is the only com. pany which has made an advance on the first established price, or upon any reduction once made. While the re ceipts of every other company from week to week .how an incrca.e, thi? company i? compelled to show a da crease. The receipt, of tho Reading {Railroad Com piny exceed tho most extravagant estimates. The trans. porution of coal is much greater than anticipated, and in- j creates from one week to another much more rapidly than expected. The receipts for the past four months of 184A, compared with the corresponding period in 1843, ahow an increase of more than one hundred per cant. Should future year, pre.ent the same raault compared with this, it muit be one of tha moat productive piecea ot property in the country. Railroad* must take the prcce. dence of (anais in the transportation of merchandise. It would be almoet impotuble for a canal company to lire, had it a railroad company to compete with, unless the le gislature secured advantage! to it.

The work i* under the superintendence of an able officer, Capt. Hope, R E., and the operaliug engineer, Corporal H mi*, is a man of great experience and energy. There i* every probability that this important and very neffuary undertaking will be ftnithed much sooner than was originally supposed.? When completed, it i* estimated that there will be sufficient depth of water to allow any vessel to pass is and out the harbor The galvanic battery ia employed upon the work; and aa a proof of the effective havoc produced through the agency or this powerful instrument, we may remark, that Mr. Lightbourn, an experienced man, from St. David's, state* that he wa* present on Thursday last when a blast was taken, and, after the water be came clear, he found that where before there was water to the depth of only 13 feet, it had fully XI feet. In a similar ratio bad every previous blast in other place* doue service. Hitherto, tin canisters have been used for holding the power? is sup posed if strong iron bound casks were u?ed instead, much great er execution would he effected. Every well wishsrto ourlittle country will be gladdened by this gratifying information. The harbor of St. George's, pronounced ai one of the finest in (he world, is rendered unavailable for the ingress of vessels of the lariteu class by the huge bar situated a short distance from the ?ntrance. The removal of this natural obstruction, which has commenced so auspiciously, will eventuate to the great benefit of St. George's ana the country generally.?[Bermuda paper, April 36.

Extract of a Memorandum, communicated by Chekib Effen di, to hi* Excellency Sir Stratford Canning, on the 37th of Feb. 1&I5:? " It is known that merchant vexel* in geoerel, neither Otto man or belonging to friendly nations, are permitted to pass the Straits after sunset, nevertheless, merchant vessels, unwilling to observe the regulations, are ssen from time to time endeavor ing to pass; and although attempts have been made to stop them, by firing cannon, merely tor the purpose of signalising the same to them, and without any intention of touching them, as they know that the firing will do them no injury, no real advantage has been the result. Now this ancient prohibition with regard to merchant vessels became imperative, merely from the impos sibility of discovering whether the vessel which may be passing during the night was a merchant vessel ur a vessel or war. But the authorities have written and represented to us that, ? tk? attribute ts a tpecict of tolerance the fact they have not lilth erto lired cannons at the vessels which have passed, with any iuteiitiou of injuring t lie in, the greater part of the vessels endea vor to elude the regulation in question. " It is lor this reason that it has been definitely dccreed to put into execution, with regard to all vessels which may attempt to pass Ihe Straits after sunset, this absolutely prohibitory regula tion, a regulation which must bs maintained inviolably, as part of sn ancient system of government of the Sublime Porte, and at a necessary cousequeuce of that which has been established by the treaty which has been concluded a short time since with the Five Allied Power*. " In consequence, the authorities have been informed, that a term of three months, calculating from the first of March, in the current year, 1261 (ISO), has been fixed upon, and that at the expiration of this term, they must, in the first place, give notice by signal to the vessels which may insist upon entering the Straits, of the prohibition there is in force, that if they do not pay attention tliereto, they shall fire two or three blank cart ridges, and that if they do not pay attention # this also, they shall employ all mean* of endeavoring to prevent them, by firing at them with ball. " Consequently, we address to your Excellency the present Official Memorandum, requesting you to have the goodness im mediately, and in the manner most efficient, to bring the mea sure* in question to the knowledge of the captains of British merchantmen, so that they may become aware, that if in conse quence of the system above alluded to being put ?n practice, tnere should be any damages or injury done, they can make no claim nor complaint thereof; ana lastly, in order that your Ex cellency may have the goodness to isrue llw orders and injunc tions ueciwsarv, and analagous thereto. " The 15th Saper, 1261. VESSELS PKOIUBITED ENTERING CAHTIIACI:*A Dl'RINO THE Nioht.?An order haying been issued by the governor! of tiiis city to prevent vessels from entering this port during the night, excepting when compelled through stre?s of weather, when they can anchor to the North of port Navidad, I beg to apprise you of the same, that it may be communicated to the authorities of those porta which clear tor the Mediterranean.

Offict-beggart and Committtoner of Patentt?Mr. Bancroft and the Decorations of tlu Naval Ofictrt Drtu?Hit Ordtrt to Commander I of Shipt and Squadron,i?Major Lewie, Ex-auditor, going to Trimmee?Mr. Blair'$ Portrait?Fair?Mr. Morte't Magnetic Telegraph. The office-beggars her* have at last found a new subject upon whom to practice their importunitiea? no other than th? Hon. ?. Burke, M. C., and now Commiaaioncr of Patent*. Mr. Burke has arrived hers and assumed the duties of his office, and he is, therefore, besieged by those who have not yet been supplied with office to induce him to turn out the "ins" and put in the "outs." How far this course will ba adopted, I know not. In the meantime, the Examiner, an officer whose duties are very arduous, and require a thorough knowledge of the Depart ment in all its branches, and has a small amount of scientific knowledge and skill, has resigned his of fice, because he don't get salary enough. Mr. Bancroft, the talented and gentlemanly Secre tary of the Navy, I understand, will issue, in a few days, unorder relative the decorations on the dresses of officer* of the navy. He is at present considering whether he shall accede to a request, which is very earnestly preferred by the Lieutenants, to allow them to wear a stripe of gold lace down the outer seams of the pantaloons, when this knotty point has been finally determined, the order will be issued forthwith. I learn also that Mr. Bancroft has issued orders to commanders of vessels and squadrons in the navy, to make their reports to him much more comprehen sive than they have hitherto been. They are to ac quaint themselves as fully as possible with all sub jects coming within the range of their objK'rvation, which will tend to throw light upon and aid the ad vancement of inquiries into the customs, habits, characters, die., of the people of the ports where they may cost anchor, as well as prosecute such research es as will aid the prosecution of scientific enquiries, and add to the stock of our knowledge, and tney are to make full aad ample reports to the Secretary at stated periods. A report has been spread here by some of th?! quid nunct, that Mr. Polk was about to give Major Lewis, the ex-Auditor, an office superior to that of which he has been recently deprived. This ia not the case.? Major Lewis is preparing to depart from this city for Tennessee, where he formerly resided, and will probably there commence operations in opposition to Mr. Polk's administration, and as a necessary con sequence, I suppose, in opposition to Aaron Vail Brown, the democratic candidate for Governor of that State. We shall see next August what influence he will be able to exert in that State. It is said here that General Jackson entirely disapproves of the re moval of Major Lewis, and will back him up in Ten nessee. Now venom. I am informed that the handsome Mr. Blair, who, as the fiscal Editor informed us in ihis valedctory, went to Philadelphia on businese, has been prevailed upon several days longer, in order to have his portrait painted by J. Tulley. Only think of that! " Beauty and the Deast," &c. The ladies of Mr. Oillis's Church (Episcopal) of this city, are now holding a fair at the Concert Hall, on Pennsylvania Avenue, in order to raise funds.? There is a plentiful supply of knick-knack-ery, with cakes, ice creams, conee, &c., &c., and a post of fice, where every one who enquires will find a letter remaining for them. To ensure plenty of calls tor their wares, all the stands are attended by two or three handsome young ladies, and those who are not encaged in that capacity are quite willing to converse with you, and point out the excellence of the vari ous articles, for looking at which and conversing with their pretty selves, they charge you nothing, and only 12| cents for admission. I learn that Mr. Morse, the inventor of the Mag netic Telegraph, has commissioned Mr. Fleiscn man, of this city, as his agent, and he is about to make a visit to Europe, and to attempt to set forth Mr. Morse'* claims to the invention, and its superi ority over Mr. Wheatstone's of England, in Germa ny, where he will endeavor to bring it into use, be ing fully authorized by Mr. Morse for that purpose. Mr. Fleischman will, at the same time,be instructed by the Commissioner of Patents, to procure valua ble information, See., for the use of the American government. I understand he is to leave this coun try on this journey on the 1st of June. Washington, April 29,1840. Futhionable Movcmentt at IVaihington?Chevaliff Wikoff-?Beau Hickman?A Fashionable Mar. riage. Can you inform me what the redoubtable Cheva lier WikofT, Fanny's ex-man of business, wants in Washington"! la it to sell teat I should like to know, because his claims should be attended to. A man of his parts should not go unnoticed, and I have no doubt but that the President would gladly em brace any opportunity of winning over to the demo cratic ranks so distinguished an individual. At pre sent he is in the goodly keeping of the equally cele brated Beau Hickman. Do you know the Beaul Then I will introduce him?Mr. Hickman, Mr. Ben nett?Mr. Bennett, my friend Mr. Hickman. My friend, as you will perceive, is a distinguished look ing individual, usually travels behincT a very fine mustache, wears a nat, brim measuring |th of an inch wide, latest Paris touch: black frock coat, ra ther venerable and respectable, usually buttoned up to the chin when the thermometer is ranging be tween 90 and 95, as in warm weather. My friend is subject to sore throat, some people have insinuated; but this is a slanderous world, you know, so let it | not detract from the respectability of my friend, who I is a most useful member of society; he kindly takes i charge of all strangers as they arrive, and introduces them into the mysteries of Washington life, and should they wish to take a julep, or a dozen raw, my friend ifl always on hand, to save them the disagree able necessity of eating alone. Last evening the beautiful Mips II , was mar ried to an officer of the navy; and being invited to pay my respects to the happy pair, to-day at twelve o'clock?the appointed time?I p?ia my re spects to the bride, who looked as beautiful as the morning, and reclining against the window, stood ready to note the passing scene. In the groom stood celestial happiness personified on eartn; and well might he be nappy, lor in her he got fortune, beauty ana virtue, all combined. If he ever causes her a pang, I hope that he will be condemned to chew at one of Brown's beefsteaks for two hours, without stopping to rest his grinder*?that will be punish ment enough for him. But what beautiful young creature is that entering the door, and looking bri dal-like herself 1 It is Miss 8.. the daughter of a gallant officer of the army. I know one poor fel low who would go into servitude longer than Isaac did, to obtain her hand. But 1 must not slight the other distinguished personages in my admiration of this one, for they come pouring in thick and fast.? Then entera the joyous Miss B., escorted by a train of good looking beaux, Capt. Jack D., leading the van; who but Jack, "vot owes no man."

WAsnrvcrro*, May 7, 188. The Opposition May Ball. Last night the opposition May Ball, coronation and all, came off at the Aaacmbly Rooms opposite to the Unitarian Church. This was given by Mr. Labbl, who has for his pnpils the children of the $10 aristocracy of this city, who think themselves so much better than other folks, because they receive more, money from Uncle ,Sam. Mr. Labb6 s ar rangements were much superior to those at Mr. Carusi's baO. The room is larger, the music was better, and the arrangements superior. The decora tions were more numerous, and the arrangement of the evergreens and flowers reflected great and de served credit upon the good taste and judgment displayed therein. The company was alio larger than that at Mr. Carusi's; and while there were fully ns many, and as beautiful ladies there as at Mr. C'a., truth requires the fact to be stated, that there were many more ugly persons?absolutely and irretrievably ugly. The coronation ceremony was very similar to that doucribed as having taken place at Carusi's on the 1st May, the difference being that neither the Queen nor her attenduita were so beautiful. The Queen on thisoccasioapowever, was a very intercatinggirl, named ViolettaL. Carroll, a descendant,I believe, from some collateral relative of CRarles Carroll of Carrollton, and her maida of honor ware two young ladies namad Randall and Keyworth. Immediately after the coronation a feature was introduced which wan not practised at Mr. Carusi's?i. e.?the per formances of some very interesting fancy dances by some of Mr. LabM's young female pupils, which they performed with very great grace, and much to the delight of the aseeaibled spectators. Among these fancy dances, was one bv a little girl, a little more than three years old, who excited the most lively interest in all the company, by the astonishing accuracy with which she performed her portion W the programme, though it really was u wonder how she ever managed to perform it, and then after she had triumphantly acquitted herself, and had been ap plauded by the company, it was very amusing to witness the air with whicn she put up her face to be kissed by her elder school companions, with whom she seemed to be deservedly a favorite and a pet. All the dances by the pupils of Mr. LubbA were admira bly iierformed, and reflected great credit upon his skill as a teacher, and it was easy enough to see from the interest he manifested, that he was indeed an enthusiast in his profession. These danceB being over, the company prepared to enter into the enjoy ments of the evening, and the music struck up for a cotillion, and the floor was immediately crowded with the devotees of Terpsichore, there being twice as many desirous of whirling in the dance, than there was room to accommoJate. The ball was graced by the presence of the lovely Queen, crowned at Carusi's 011 the ltt May, attend ed by her maids of honor ; and there were also a great number of the beauties, and also of the gentle men present, who had attended the previous ball. It was also graced by the attendance of Mr. dc Bo disco, the Russian Minister, and his beautiful ludy, about whom so muny superlatives have been used to describe her charms, that it would be in vain for me to uttempt to find any new terms wherewith to write of her. Mr. Paged, the French Minister, and his lady, were also there, as she professes to be one of the leaders of the ton, and iB said to have been the first one to graduate the aristocracy of this me tropolis according to the amount of salary received from Uncle Sam, whereby the recipient of $1400 annum considers himself quite above keeping com pany with the recipient of $1000 per year, and he who receives $2000 is too aristocratic to know those who only receive $1100, Arc. dcc. There whs Cave Johnson, the Postmaster General, also, with his wife and daughter; and, indeed, he seemed most heartily delighted to watch the pranks of the youngsters, and he laughed and smiled till his face fairly shone and glistened with good humor. There was Mr. Ban croft, too, the polite Secretary of the Navy, with his wife, whom he solemnly averred would despise him if he could not, or would not. or did not, admire all the beautiful ladies present, declaring it to be one of the happiest nights he had witnessed for a long, long time. Mrs. Walker, the wife of Mr. Walker, the Secretary of the Treasury, was also there.? So was the gentlemanly private Secretary of the President, James Knox Walker, and his beautiful nod accomplished lady, and their inte resting little daughter, who looked as pretty and charming ns any of the, youngsters in the room. Numbers of the officials employed at this seat of government were also present; and the whole assem blage wore a bright and brilliant aspect. And yet, though there were all the materials for enjoyment?a beautiful room,elegantly decorated?a large company, with much beauty and grace comprised in it?a good company of musicians and excellent manager?yet? with all these requisites, the ball was not equal in the amount of enjoyment to that on the 1st of May. This was the aristocracy ball, and therefore there must be that everlasting stiffness?that division into cliques which, wherever it is introduced, infallibly destroys enjoyment. There was Miss wanted to dance, but her vis-a-vis was Miss ; and of course she could not think of recognizing her stand ing (!) by dancing opposite to her, because if she did, (horrible thought) she would probably have to touch the tips of her fingers in the course of th? evening, and it was altogether too much to expect her to demean herself by so doing, and therefore sho sat down without dancing, contenting herself by the loss of the enjoyment, if it were omy to be pro cured by so tremendous a sacrifice of position as dancing, opposite to once made of the same clay as herself. Had it not been for this spirit, all the muterials of enjoyment were there in the great est profusion, but this codfish aristocracy would de stroy any thing and every thing like enjoyment for fear of "compromising" their position. " Can such tilings be, and overcome us like a summer cloud without our special wonder 1" For those, however, who do not possess there joy-dispelling thoughts of would-be-aristocracy, there was plenty of enjoyment during the evening, though witnessing the display of such a feeling acta as n drawback to sonft extent on the pleasures of the others. So the evening progressed?the music played, and the company danced?the gentlemen were gallant and attentive, and the ladies, or some of them rRther, coquettish and flirting. Flirtations progressed?in cipient courtships were commenced?and some suit affairs were hastened towards a denouement?time advanced?midnight passed?the room thinned of its company?the last dance was commenced?and I sloped. The Other Arikl. Philadelphia. [Correspondence of the Herald.] Philadelphia, May 8, 1849. There ii little or nothing to communicate to-day. Poll ticiani, except the disappointed, have made up their minds to be satisfied with the appointments, and they are now busily at work, like a swarm of beas, about the sub ordinate offices. Henry Horn haa gone to Washington about his sureties and his commission as Collector. Dr. Lehman, the newly appointed Postmaster, has not yet taken possession of his office, though it is expected he will in the course of a week or so. Among the appoint ments, there is none which gives such universal satisfac tion as that of the Hon. Thomas M. Pcttit as U. 8. District Attorney. Henry Welsh, the Surveyor, has not y*t come to town. There has been no appointment aa yet for Treasurer of the Mint Mnjor Roach is the pre sent incumbent, but rumor has pointed out Hendricks B. Wright as his successor. Though probable, I deem this, from the delay which has taken place, as doubtful. Thero has been a considerable case on trial in the Quarter Sessions for this two days. A man named Eames, a partner in one of our most wealthy and respec table houses in Front street, is charged with an assault, with an intent to commit a rape on a little girl betwei a ten and eleven years of age. The girl swears positively to an actual rape, the physician swears that this is impos sible, and the Judge has charged that the probabilities are against the present defendant being the guilty man.? There haa been a difficulty in identifying him as the per son who made the attempt?an attempt made in open day and in the vicinity of a crowded business thoroughfare. The jury had not agreed when this was written, and there is great excitement among the crowds who have witnessed the trial. Our literary people are active in their labors, and pub lishers are up and doing. Du Solle is preparing his vo lume of poems, and it may be expected shoitly. Henry B. Hirst is also bringing out a volume of his poems to be issued simultaneously in Boston, N ew York and Phila delphia. Zeiber !c Co., your agent for thia city, have now in press a work which is looked for witn some anxiety by the literary and scientific circles, and to which I alluded in a former letter. It is metaphysical in subjoct though illustrated by examples drawn from the physical sciences, and in character is similar to the " Fossil Oata? ology" of Lord Brougham?the " Evidence* of Creative Wisdom," (I believe it is called) by Wheeler, and the "Vestages of Creation" by?no matter who. It discusses the necessity of moral evil, and is by one of our clearest writers. The prospect of its appearance excites consi derable interest.
