whan by mar* Inaotion in respect to other sonro** of political convulsion. ho could liava aecured for the remainder of his official term, a larger degree of per ?omil lepose and general approbation, than waa ever en joyed liy uny of hia predecessors, ha ia again compelled, an lie lieliey*, to a clear and inexorable duty, whose el ecutiou he well knows will revive anew the animoaity of party; iuvolve in bitter and painful conflict the remnant ut hia public life; and bring upon himaelf yerhapa the censures of many whom hu loves, and with whose good opinion* he would not lightly part. Inferior minda would ha\e slirunk from this new trial 80 did not Jackson. What efforts were made to drive him from hia purpose?with what inflexible re aolution he adliereu to hia poaition and how the People sustained him in this conflict also, ? it uot written in the history of the tiniea, anu freah in in "the recollections of all who hear me In reference to this, as well aa to every other debatable portion of hia public life, 1 purposely refrain, lest 1 should transgresathe just bounds olthis occasion, from any attempt to vindicate their exjiediency or their right fulness. Only one claim in his bohalf do 1 now think it needful or becoming to assert; that if in any of his offi cial acta he erred, his errors were of the understanding, not the heart; and that in them all, he acted from honest, disinterested, and patriotic motives. On thia poiut he thus speaks, in the lofty tone of conscious integrity, in one of hia recorded vindications. " In vain do 1 bear upon my person enduring memorials of that content in which American liberty was purchased ? in vain have I since periled property, fame and life, iu defence of the rights and privilege* so dearly bought * * * if any serious douhta can he entertained aa to the purity of iny purposes and motives. * * * In the history of conquerors and uaurpcrs, nevnr, in the lira of youth, nor in the vigor of manhood, could 1 find an at traction to lure ino from the putli of duty, and now I ahull scarcely find an inducement to commence their career of ambition, when gray hairs, and a decaying frame, in stead ol inviting to toil aud battle, call me to the con templation of other worlds, where conquerors cease to be honied, and usurpers expiate their crimes. The only ambition 1 can feel, is to acquit myself to Him to whom I must soon render an account of my stewardship, to serve my fellow uiun, aud livo respected and honored in the history of my couutiy. No; the ambition which leads ine on, is an anxious desire and a fixed determination to return to the people unimpaired the sacred trust they have confided to my charge. * ? * to persuade my countrymen, so far as I may, that it is not in u splendid government, supported by power ful i-onopolies and arisiocratical establishments, that they will find happiness, or their liberties protection ; hut in a plain system, void of pomp?protecting all, and granting favors to none -dispensing its blessings, like the dews of Heaven, unseen and unfalt, save in the freshness and beauty they contribute to produce It ia such a government that the genius of our people requires?aucb an one only under which our States may remain for ages to come, unitod, prosperous, and free, If the Almighty Being, who has hitherto sustained snd protected me, will but vouchsafe to make my feeble powers instrumental to such a re sult, I shall anticipate, with pleasure, the place to he assigned me in the history of my country, and die contented, with the belief that I have contributed, in some small degree, to increase the value and prolong the duration of American liberty." Andrew Jackson has now retired to the "secjuostered shades of private life, with tho benedictions of a giate lul people and the respect aud adiniiation of the world He enters his loved and peaceful Hermitage, at the ap pointed limit of human existence, with an enfeebled frame ; the victim of complicated and incurable mala dioi, which leave him little respite from pain, and no strength or relish for the pleasures of active life. "Yet lias this been, iu many respects, the happiest, and not the least useful portion ol his mortal career.? Feeling that he has fulfilled with fidelity and zeal, the course of public servico to whicn Providence had called him ; conscious of the singleness and purity of his motives, ami happy in the belief, that the great mass of his political opponents do him justice in this respect; thrice happy in the knowledge, that the principle* by which lie has been guided, are warm ly cherished by a great majority of the people ; re ceiving continually, and in a thousand forms, proofs of affection and esteem from nil classes of his coun trymen : full of faith in tho vitality and perpetuity of our system of government, state and federal ; an ticipating, with delight, the advancing glories of hia country, and surrounded by a family he lovea, and by each member of which he is held in the profoundest ven eration; the retirement of Androw Jackson,notwithatand ing his bodily infirmiti?a, ia all that wiadom or patriotism can desiie. and audi as few statesmen and heroes in the history of mankind, have been permitted to enjoy. For more than eight years he is apared to our affections, and though for the last three of them he seldom quits hia dwelling, except to bow himself in the house of God, his mental faculties remain unimpaired ; nor are they idle for a day. Hia corresponco, whether of friendship or uf private or public business, is kept up with steadiness and activity. Alive to everything that concerns his beloved country, and taking daily note of tier affairs,he sounds from his lone watch-towcr the voice of counsel or of warning, aecording lo tho vision which he aeca, and to the message which has been given him. And though at times a dull ear is turned to his prophesyings, yet in most cases, and especially in the latest, hia words have been clothed with their anciont power over the minds and the actions of his fellows. If there be uny to whom these utterances seem futile ' or needless, they will yet allow that each of them breathes the language of the heart, and is in stinct with zeal for the happiness and glory of America. But it is not to the public cause that all his thoughts are given. Weighty ond instant as ate fho duties of the citizen to his country, Anuhew Jacksov remem bers that he owes to his' maker a higher and more eolemn responsibility. Thia sentiment hud been im planted in his youthful breast by a mother's lessons nnd a mother's love. It had been nourished by tne example of u wife?one of the excellent of the earth ; by providential deliverances and favors, by the peril sal of the Book of liod, and by tho instructions of the pulpit. Under tho circumstances in which he ia now placed, these influences acquire new. und, by Divine blessing, decisive force. Thev loud him to the Garden and the Cioss; He seeks and ho obtains the forgive ness of hia sins ; he avows before the world tho hopes ho has received, and publicly enlists in the army of the faithful. Henceforward he ad dicts himself with u child-like docility to the du ties and privileges of the Christian life, lie finds in them his chiel enjoyment, aud they pftxluce in him their appropriate effects?peace with Ood, fortitude in suffering, patience and resignation in the midst of pain, seionity and hope in the prospoct ol his de parture. And Alien at length the final hour lias come, how does it illustrate tho humility of his char acter, the warmth of hia benevol&tice, the sincerity, the vigor of hia faith ! With prayers for liis house bold, his friends, hia country: witli words of instruction ami ol love to all around him; with entire reiiancc on the merits of his Redeemer, he commita, without a murrner or a sigh, his immortal spirit to tho Ood of his salvation, bis peri'liing body to the dual from which it came ! Such. fellow-citizens, weie the last moments of Andrew Ju^ktou. How unlike those usually assigned by Poetry and Komuure 10 their tabled heroes! Aud yet, in the sober judgment of enlightened reason, not less sublime and hemic, than if passed on the field of baltlo and in the Chariot of victory. The greatest of all triumph* i* that which is achieved ever the last enemy ; and this, through the faith that is in Jesus, Jackson was enabled to achieve. The fires of the last day shall consume the laurel wreaths of earth ; most of them, iudeed, will have withered ere it comes ; und all evor worn or won, in the tiilo of tiino, would furniah no compensation for tho loss of a single soul. But the chaplet awarded to the faith ful soldier of tho cross, shall be a crown of glory " that J'adeth not awuy."' How poor, in comparison, tlie death scenes enacted by the most illustrious warriors of the heathen woriil ! Jackson was a Christian, and he died the Christian's death. In view of this fact, ami of it blessed issues, how rich, how unfailng, our sources ol consolation ? In notes as melodious and sublime aa tbo-e w hich wafted to the skies, by the aid of Milton's immor tal genius, the departing spirit of the Hebrew Martyr the cliorua of Americun sympathy sends up from our Jackaon's bed of death, its pean of mournful exultation? " Nothirg is here for tears, nothing to wail, Oi knock 1 lit- Inesst ; no weakness, 110 contempt. Dispraise or Idaine ; nothing; but well and lair, what may i|uiet us in a death so noble." Tho Vulley of the Mississippi, tho theatre of hia youthful valor and hia meridian renown?the sanc tuary of his declining ago -folda within her bosom the ashes of her Hero. In the centre of that youug but vigorous State, whoao destinies, once his anx ious care, were long the objects of his satisfied re gard ; on the sunny banks of tho (? itinberhind, where tho atrong verdnro of the West begins rcluctantl) to yield to the luxuriant benutv of tho South : embosomed in n 11 acred solitude, band's the Tomh of the llermitnge ? henceforth to divide with Mount Vernon the respect, the udmiration and the reverence of mankind.

Aud now unto Him who is able to do for us exceeding ahuu dautly above all that we ask, or think,?ever unto Uod, the Father, Son, und Holy Ghost, be glory for ever and ever,?Amen. Between the Prayer and Benediction, the New York Musical Society gave a piece of music in honor of die departed, which was ably executed. The choir consisted of upwards of 60 female and male performers, and did credit to themselves and the occasion. The Benediction. The Rev. Mr. Wainwriqht theu appeared ou the front'of the platform and Baid:? The blessing of the Father, of the Bon, of the Holy Ghost, be with you, and all the Israel of God. Amen aud amen. The dilferent military and'civic companies then filed oil in regular order, and in a few minutes the whole scene in front of the City Hall was quite changed. INCIDENTI. The incidents attending the two first Divisions, were tew indeed throughout the route. Thin per haps was much owing to the presence ot Justice Matsell, accompanied oy one or two other Magis trates, and a possee of police, who led the way.? The only feature that was at all striking was the free use that one of the Alderman made of his staff m repelling intruders who presumed to step within its r?ucl*during the procession. This was very forcibly felt by a youth as the corporate body wasenteringthe Purk on their return. We heard that one of the of ficers of the First Brigade was thrown from his iiorse near i)ey struct, previous to the commence ment of thepro'cefsi ?n,and was severely hurt. He was taken into an adjoining house, and shortly afterwards removed to his residence. Every space in the Park was filled with spectators; the trees were crowded with youths anxious even to obtain a bird's eye view of the proceedings. Every window within sight of the Park, along Chatham street, Chat ham Square and East Broadway, and indeed throughout the whole route, was crowded. Even the roofs of the highest buildings were thronged with spectators. Brooklyn, and parts adjacent, were quite emptied of their population. Truly it might be said, their streets were deserted. Extra ferry boats were in active operation throughout the day. The only, wonder is that such a vast assemblage should go off" with so little untoward events. We did not near of a single accident of a more serious nature than the one mentioned. On the return, the first body entered the Park at ten minutes before six o' clock, thus taking close upon four hours to go the route. The last division only left Centre street about fifteen minutes before the arrival of the ad vance guard at the Park on their return. The most moderate calculation made of those present at the commencement of the procession was 60,(MO In the two first divisions there were said to be 15,000 At the hour previously mentioned the grand procession left the Park and moved up Chatham street, which wus thronged with dense masses of curious and excited citizens, all ani mated Jwith one spirit, and all eager1 to view the parade in honor of the memory ot lam who so bravely, so gallantly, and bo fearlessly de fended nnd maintained his country's honor and his country's rights in the dark hour of danger, peril, and distrust. The balconies and windows in Chat ham street were filled with the lovely and bewitch ing forms of fair Jewesses, whose large dark eyes, 'neath long and silken eyelashes, flashed in the golden sunlight,bewitching,but yet mournf ul, glances on the vast throng beneath. Old clo' men, who generally drive their trade irrespective of Sab Bath or holy day, now closed their shops in honor ot tins occasion. All was hushed and still, save the low, deep, mournful tones of the muffled drum, and strains of martial music from full and effective bands, which tell like a knell upon the ear. Occasionally would the sharp and piercing cry of pain come from some unfortu nate urchin whose toes had been trampled on by the busy crowd, or the invectives and reproofs of an old apple woman, create loud peals oflaughter and witty sallies from the throng, who had accidentally over turned her cart and fruit?"Oh, inuy the curse of St. Pathrick light on the whole ot ye, ye dirthy black guards?Thanamon dull a rud tlath?arrah, and is this the way ye'd be afther showin' your respect tor the Gineril, faith?pick 'em up, Biddy?pick 'em up ?don't make a fuss now." "Oh, oh ! get oil my corns, will you?oh! oh!" "Stand back, the re fund back!" shouted the guard. "Stand back, is it?faith and may be ye'd have us stand 011 the houses," answered an Irishman, just from the "first gem of the sea." With these and many similar expressions of pain, condolemeut, tun and good hurnor, the procession moved on to Chat ham Square,which was denselycrowded by men,wo men and children of all sorts, sizes and complex I ions. Mothers with their infants in their arms, and old grey-headed sires, tottering on crutches, gay hushing troops of smiling bright-eyed dcnumirllet, who tried hard to keep sober faces?and smartly d ressed lads on their best behavior, together with hackney coaches with swearing drivers, omnibuses, cabs, wagons, horses, pigs, rowdies, loafers, black g mrds, pickpockets and dirt, dust and smoke in abundance, were here assembled. At the earner by the post ofhcc, was a little old fellow selling root beer trom a barrel?he opi>eured doing a flourishing business, and the jennies were fast accumulating in his cai>acious pockets?but, alas ! it was the decree of fate that he. too, should expe rience his share of trouble, for in drawing a glass ot the inviting beverage out new the " bung,1' and high flew the liquid, descending in showers on the silk shawls and straw bonnets of the ladies, and ruining the arrangement of sundry neckcloths and linen shirts. , Loud and long were the peals ot laughter which followed this unforseen event, and the procession again moved on up East Broadway. Th? balconies,windows,and even the to|wof houses :u this highly fashionable street, were full of ladies and gentlemen who waved their handkerchiefs as the procession passed along. " Fair women and brave men." under the scorching heat of the noon day's sun, had aesembled to cheer and urge on this interesting and imposing ceremony. Wreaths of fresh and beautiful flowers, wound into irarlands, weie from time to time thrown by lovely h inds to the weary troops who, by looks, nt f ast, thanked the givers for this mark ot their ap probation. One general enthusiasm seemed to per vade the breasts of the procession, and the lookers on. All " the pride, pomp and circumstance of glo rious war," was here. With such a ceremony for a closing scene, who would not live, fight, and die for his country?who would not serve long years of toil and hardship if .? uch a fate might be the reward. Never have we witnessed so imposing, brilliant, and solemn a spectacle. The appearanceVd the Bowery nnd Union Square was most lively. All along the line of m irch the windows and streets were crowded with people, who took up their position at an early hour, and awaited the great event of the dav with the most ex emplary patience. The |mrk in Union Square was crowded, but not with its usual company, the upper tens having seceded for the time, and their place was filled with a concourse of the multitude, com prising high and low. The beautiful fountain was in full play, and the bare-footed urchins, that appear to spring up by magic on every public day like yes terday, were busily engaged paddling about in the water, nnd redeeming themselves from the imputa tion of belonging to tne "great unwashed." Hut the mansions in the square presented a most animated and lo\elv sight; every window was crowded with ladies ; also the stoops. In whatever direction one looked, groU|? ot loveliness and elegance met the rye. Numbers of private carriages and omnibuses stationed themselves around the square, and afford ed their p?ssengers a favorable view of the iminens' procession as it swept around the ptrk. We think this spot was decidedly the most favorable one in the whole city for witnessing the proceedings, and as it passed round and defiled down Broadway,it exceeded in grandeur any former one that we have ever seen. For upwards of three hours one continuous march of military and socie ties, with their banners, was kept up?and we can but repeat that it was the most impressive and grand display that has ever taken place in New York. No disturbance that we could learn of, took plnce tri this part of the city, and every thing went off with l?erfect quiet. The large crowd that had assembled conducted themselves with a propriety and quiet suited to the occasion. Thu intense heat nnd rloud lehs sky caused soda water, and such cooling bever ages, to be in great demand, a few of the never to-be-forgotten tin cups that graced the Park Foun i.un last Ith of July, would not have been amiss at I'nion Park Fountain; but, in default of them, all kinds ot ve-Jiels were made u*<e of to dip up water wherewith to quench the thirst ot the m mv. We mw one voung gentleman v> ?y .? ? -n>.?' Mil using the top oi n blacking l>o . ? a dipper, 11, .1 the moment, many envied him even thut extrmrdinarjr drinking cup. The pump waa surrounded by a crowd of nnxioua a^hcants, and if Truth is to be found in a well, *ne must certainly hare been brought io the. upper world by the Incessant pump ng that was kept up Th? procession then reached Broadway. The ippea ranee in this vast thoroughfare, from Lnion Park to Canal street, and d?wn to die City Iiall, ao early as half past three o'clock, balflea de scription. Every window?every step?every nook from whence could be caught a glimpse of the pro ''ession, were literally jammed^ up to suffocation The intense heat was almost intolerable, yet it did not keep the anxious crowds, who Hocked from the adjoining streets, trom blocking up the sidewulka at either side. The appearance of ilie proceaaion on passing Union .Square into Broadway, was truly imposing. The scene had more the appearaiice ot some festive celebration, than tuiy thing that attaches to the grave solemnities which the procession was designed lo celebrate. The crowds on the streets, particularly at this point, be came rather noisy, as the head part of the procession approached. The coup d'eeti, as the two first divi sions had passed down Broadway, from Union Park, was truly imposing?animating?when view ed from an elevated spot. The slow and solemn tramp of the cavalry, with occasionally some res tive animal breaking the monotony of the scene, and attempting to break its own neck, or that of its rider?the windows all studded with an array of that classic beauty, of which New York at all times feels so deeply proud. The " light artillery" of sparkling eyes, that shone from the windows, capa ble of subduing the " heavy artillery" that was paus ing by the tout ensemble, altogether, was, indeed, grand and imposing, aud has never been equalled in any similar display in this city. The crowd on re cognizing some of the Foreign Ambassadors, as they passed along, seemed deeply pleaued. Several, ou arriving near Canal street and vicinity, straggled out of die ranks, apparendy fatigued with walking. The Common Council seemed to bear the labor with good nerve und resolution, headed by Oliver Clrar lick, Esq.. On passing Canal street, there did not appear a single straggler in the crowd. Near "Nib lo's,"a rumpus was nigh being made?some demon stration of ill-feeling on the part of some rowdies, having been manifested as the " Shamrock (Irish) Benevolent Society," waa passing by. This caused some alight disorder; but, the society soon again formed in line. An alarm of fire, about six o'clock, caused some further contusion. Some rowdies at tacked a cartman in the vicinity of Canal street, and the curtman made a noble fight, by laving on them with his whip. He subsequeudy was hunted down Canal street, where he got help, and again beat back the rowdies. The pickpockets were quite busy in exercising their craft; as they made some havoc up on numberless silk handkerchiefs, and gloves, with whatever loon articles they could safely lay their hands on. Those worthies seemed evidently much ?pleaded with the appearance of the Police officers in the proceshion doubtless from the consideration, that they " looked well at a disance." No further incidents worthy of notice, as faras we could ascer tain occurred, on this part of the route. There was an immense concourse of people, of both bexes,and all classes assembled alone Broadway on both sides, and it was utterly impossible for any lierson to cross some of the streets. An unusual and unpleasant occurrence took place us one of the Ar tillery companies was coining along, close up to the walk. The people who had gone some distance into the street were rather unwiliing to make way; the military were not to be drove out of their course, and drove ou when the crowd fell back, and then men, women and children, were tumbling one over the other, considerably injuring und hurting many, in the melee^ A little boy who got on to an awning post fell down and was much injured. Another at the entrance from Broadway to the Park; there was a great number of men, women and children col lected, and also a large number of horsemen and omnibusses, when there was an alarm of fire, and as usual, die "boys" made a rush through the proces sion, knocking down und hurting some, frightening the horses considerably, who kicked and jumped around, knocking down apple stands, and otherwise injuring persons and property?it was some time be fore order could be restored. , There was not one political banner in the whole procession. Those that had ever been used for such a purpose, if there were any, were so well cov ered with black crape ?nd muslin, as to completely hide the political signification. Through the city we only observed a single one, in the neighborhood of our office, out of the many thousands that "fluttered in thebreeze." But, perhaps, in this instance, itwas " poverty," and not ihe will consented." The long delay that took place ere the different associations could fall in, was the means of ihinnng the ranks most materially ; in some instances, parties had to wait at their several rendezvous, under a broiling sunshine, upwards of three hours, ere their turn cime. Perhaps this was unavoidable, in the great mass who were desirous of doing honor to "depart ed worth,"?but the will must be taken for the deed. The order was pretty well kept on the whole at the start, in East Broadway, There were a few long pauses, it was said owing to the falling in of differ ent associations at that point. Those who have seen the different grand displays that have been made in the Empire State for the last 50years, say there was never one equal to the present in point of uumliern, good order, respectability, and good ar rangements. One spirit appeared to pervade the mass, to sink all political feeling and aid in doing justice to the memory of one who had served long and faithfully for his country's weal.? The nearest relation?the greatest friend?the most ardent political admirer of the deceased, cannot but be amplv satisfied at the demonstration of opinion ind feeling that was exhibited on this occasion, l ivery resjiectible store in the city, after two o'clock, was closed?all appeared to vie with each other in expressing feeling for the illustrious dead. Thus it liould ever lie?the fjrrave covers all fault.*? we have only to look to the virtues of the deceased. Sacred Concert ok the French Company at the Tabernacle.?The ceremonies in honor of An drew Jackson could not have been concluded in a worthier manner than by the glorious selection of standard sacrcd music, such us was performed last evening at the Tabernacle by the French Company. The highest eulogy we can give them, is, tTiat those who were present have been fully indemnified for the unshakable torments inflicted by the countless irtemporc (out of time and out of place?) bands who paraded the streets from momma till night. A more pleasant selection could not have been made, foi Mozart, Kossini, Auber und Alichul did the honors of t iic evening under the able guidance of Prevost, who distinguished himself both as leader and composer. The concert begun with a grand svmphonia, com posed by Prevost, very well executed by the excellent orchestra, yet which we should have wished a lit ile more numerous. Amongst Prevost's four pieces informed last evening, we liked this symphonia KHst. The great inspirations of Mozar', lluvdii. Beethoven and Mendelssohn, have made this kind i >f music extremely difficult; for accustomed as we ?ire to their wonderful achievements, we cannot help instituting comparisons, the result of which can he easily guessed. The principal fault of Prevost's composition lies in the name, for nothing more than a long and elaborated overture, the first and last movement of which is written in the classical j tyle, which somewhat contrasts with the succeed ing allegro; for with the exception of a very charming instrumentation, we could not find any remarkable feature in it. The sextuer, on the contrary, is an extremely happy effort, of which we cannot peak in terms high enough. In general, Prevost appears to possess by far a greater talent for vocal eompositions than for merely instrumental ones, i lis funeral march is a very meritorious piece, but there we think again of Beethoven's motvia fumbre which by the by, we missed in the programme. 'The air, " Hoitias" likewise, is a very good com position, possessing many beauties of a high order. It told extremely well in the hands of (rarry, who with his uncommonly melodious voice?a baritone, verging on tenor?produced niueh effect with it The gems of the. evening were the selections fiotn Mozart's requiem. We simply say, reuuiem, for we do not know of any epithet that would be wor thy enough to be Hpplicd to it. The chorus " irie" and the quartetto, electrified the audience, and were rapturously applauded. Trevost probably has ?oine spile against Rossini, for why would he have ,'laced the din irit between two numbers of the .S7a{?aiunlesstobhow itscomparative weakness! The Stabat undoubtedly is a wonderful composition as a purely musical work, but it lacks the qualities which essentially constitute sacred music. Arnaud was much applauded in the tenor sir, which unquestion ably is the weakest number of the Stabat. Me pos essea much force, fire and sentiment, but his voice is huskv in prano passages, principally at the begin ning. lie it, therefore, not unfrequcntly liable to a defective intonation, notwithstanding his perfect musical education. We are certain that he will lie liked, even more than he is now, when the PJ'blic will be more accustomed to the particular qualities of his voice. His manner of filer les *ms\n unexcept ionable. L)ouvre in the " Dt /irofnndis" was respect able ; the nir is a little tooi.high for him. The " tn flammatu*" was sung by Calv6 111 a very bewitching manner, although it does not entirely suit her style ot sinmng, somewhat deficient in dramatic intensi ty, but which she supplied through her correct voca lization. The audience could have been more nu merous, the fatigue of the day undoubtedly prevent ed many from attending. We noticed many of our \ew York musicians, as well as Ole Bull, who had irrived from Boston. ' Important Dkcimov against Boston.?Several leciMiuni were announced in the Supreme Judicial ( ourt veiterday, by Judge Wilde, and among them wan one ulrerxe to the city, oil the petition ot the Boston nnd 'rnvidenco Itailrond corporation, for an injunction to .<Mtraiu the city Irom lolling the lend* adjacent to the nlilif garden,* which were hut year laid out for building .ota. and to <omi> extent aold.

We give in this day's paper the fullest possible ac count of the funeral solemnities yesterday. It is enough to say that they were worthy of the occa sion. Southern Mail.?We regret to learn that the great southern mail is hereafter to leave Philadel phia at H o'clock, instead of 7 in the morning, and arrive here at two or three in the afternoon, instead of one o'clock. We regret this, because it seems to be an unnecessary length of time for the mail to lay in the Philadelphia Post Office, namely, four or rive hours every day. The Post Master General does not take the convenience of the merchants of this city into consideration in this new arrange ment. Custom House Appointments.?We are requested to state, that the assertion of one of the morning papers of yesterday, that Capt. Rynders was ap pointed a Weigher in the Custom House, in the place of Mr. Gourlay, is not true. Capt. Rynders has been appointed a Measurer, in the place vacated by G F. Thompson, who wan appointed an Assis tant Appraiser. Steam Ship Cambria, from Boston, arrived at Halifax, on the 18th, 7 A. M., and was to leave at 11 A. M. for Liverpool. Arrivals in thk Citv.?His Excellency Silas Wright arrived in this city yesterday, accompanied by Mr. Flagg and Mr. John Van Buren, State Attor ney General. His Excellency leaves ilae City Hotel this day for Albany. Ex-Governor Marcy, Secretary of War, is ex|>ected to arrive this day from Washington, pre paratory to his tour of survey of fortifications in the Fulton steamer. Among the arrivals yesterday at the Astor, will be found the name of Ole Bull. Theatricals. Niblo's Garden?Mr. Roberts.?This gentleman appears this evening in two pieces, the admired pe tite comedy of "One Hour," with the never tiring Polka, and in "Roland for an Oliver," which is far ther strengthened by the popular Chippindale, Pla cide and Miss Taylor. The "Acrobat Family's popularity is still in the ascendant?their feats arc accomplished with most extraordinary rapidity, and include some that verge very cjosely on the impossi ble. They execute beautiful columns, pyramids and tableaux. We hear they are nil shortly to appear in a ballet pantomime. Palmo's Opera House.?This theatre was last night crowded to excess. The burlesque opera of "Shin-de-Heel-a," which is in two acts, and taken from the opera of Cinderella, is beyond conception. The performance went off well, to the delight of the audience, who signified their approbation by nume rous encores. Dinneford's Benefit.?On Wednesday evening the old "warhorse" of the drama, William Dinne ford, takes his benefit at the Bowery theatre, near and directly opposite his old "stamping ground," where, whilom, he was wont to cater for thousands of our theatre-going Gothamites. His bill will rich ly bear a reference, and the entertainment a call. His Excellency Manager Mitchell has volunteered to grace the occasion with his presence; and the immortal Flynn and his beauteous better-half will "do liberal''in the good cause. New Yorkers are proverbially grateful, and now is their time to re member that "one good turn deserves another." Sporting Intelligence. Trotting Matches over the Cbntreville Course, L. I.?On Monday there was a goodly mus ter of the admirers of trotting. The first piece of sport announced was a purse of $100, mile heats, best three in live, in harness, for pacing horses, and closed with five entries:? R. Tuthill entered b m Get off my Track I. Smith " b g Ice Hone H. Woodruff " b m Aggy Down Mr Dnnn " b m Cayuga Maid P.Hunt " b m Peyton* Some objection was made to Peytona at the com mencement, but she was allowed to go. Previous to the start "Get off my Track" lost a shoe, but went notwithstanding. There was nothing very particular in the heat, Aggy Down led home in ? min. :W sec. Peytona second ; Cayuga Maid third ; Get oil"my Track polled. The second hent was won by Peytona by half a lenath, in 2 min. 37 sec., Agey second. The third heat was a deatf one between the Cay ugii Maid and Aggy l")own, in 2 min. 37 sec. The fourth heat, after some thirteen or fourteen at tempts at a start, they went off together, Airgy lead ing, which she maintained home, winning in 2 min. 36 sec. The next piece of sport was a pacing match, mile heats in harness, for !|BOO. >lr. Wells name* b g Sir Archie C.M. Bartine " sgChSorrrl. The following is the result:? Ch. Sorrel (Col. Berune) 2 1 I Sir Archie I 2 2 Time 2:3tl 2:4i 2:4i The other match announced did not come off. A very interesting match comes oil'to-day over this track between Henry Clay and the bk. m. .Mis fortune, for #300. This* match has been long land ing, but what with quibling and other proceedings disgraceful to real sportsmen, has not cpme off; but it is hojietl that this will decide the atTair. Loss of Surgical Instruments.?We are request ed to state that Dr. Detmold yesterday lost a pocket book full of surgical instruments. The finder will be suitably rewarded by leaving it at the office of the New York Hotel. No questions will be asked. People's Line of Steamboats.?We are happy to learn that tbc large interest of Mr. Daniel Drew, in the People's Line of Hudson River Steamboats, has been pur chased by several enterprising Albanians. The new proprietors of this line aro practical men, who have long been actively engaged in river business. A'majority of the stock'of those splendid boats,the Knick erbocker, South America, Rochester, North Amcrica, Sic. being now owned in Albany, we hope that our citizens generally will interest themselves in giving them a uni ted and liberal support] In addition to these, the Rip Van Winkle and Ilemlrik Hudson, two new magniliccnt steamers, will soon take their places in the People's l.ine.?.V/Aony Journal. Distressing Casualty.?Drowned, at South Co ventry, Con., on Kriday, afternoon, Krastus H. Porter, aged 18, and Sylvanus Hoagrave, aged 17. They were sons of William Porter, Esq , and Mr. Sylvanus Seagrave, both of Coventry. Tho young mon, together with an elder brother of Seagrave, had taken a boat Tor the pur pose of sailing upon Coventry Pond. The boat was very leaky, and the elder Seagrave jumi>ed from it, to switn ?<hore, when the others, becoming frightened, also left the boat, but wore unable to swfm.and both were drown ed.?Ilarl/ord Cottrant. Curious Circumstance.?We are informed that a flight quarrel, on Tuesday last, near Allentown, resulted fatally to one of the |>arties. The persons en gaged were a' young man. Aaron Palmer, and Wm. t layton, a half-witted man, somo 40 or50 years old, living with John Palmer, grand-lather of Aaron, who also lived with him. The strife began in sport, but at length Clayton threw n large stone at Aaron, and struck him on the hip. Aaron tnen with his fist struck Clayton on tho head, above the rim of his hat. He then walked to ward the pump to wash his hand*. Looking back, he saw Clayton coming toward him with a drawn knife, in a violent passion, threatening to kill him, but just before lenching him, C. fell down. He was taken to the house and bathed, bnt a physician being called in, found him dead Trrnlnn Stale Gaztttr. Travel from Philadelphia.?The early Cam den and Ainboy Lino between New York and Philadel phia, leaves each city at half past A o'clock in the morn ing. and such excellent arrangements have now been mad* by the Company, that the time of arrival will continue to be II o'clock. Thus a citizen of Philadel phia may start by this line at half-past A A. M , arrive in New York at 11, transact business until 6 P. M , at which hour ho may leave for Philadelphia by the Mail Pilot Line, and reach hi* home at 10 o'clock the same night.? Phil. Tnq., June 34. Tiik Xav.m.

By this i-onstructlon the country papers are deprived of the ad vantages which it was believed they would receive from the law. There Is no justice In it.

About 1? o'clock thin morning, we were awakened by the ringing of bells, rattling of the engines, and alarms of "fire!" At iirit we were disposed to regard it as a false alarm, but soon we beheld the glare on the spires of the churches. We then hur-' ried into the street?, which we found filled with !>ersons hastening to the scene ol uction; wc joined them, and soon found ourselves in front of the col lege, back ol which the building on lire was sittia 'ed. The grounds we found occupied with engines, ?aid an immense concourse of citizens. All efforts to save the building were unavailing. It had been tilled with some combustible matter, such as tar narrds shavings, Arc , which must have rendered it lilhcult to extinguish.

The most important line of railroad in contemplation in this immediate neighborhood, is that running from Hartford to Oanbury, Connecticut. This road will be forty miles long, running through the best manufacturing districts of Connecticut, and strike the New York line about tweuty-five miles above the present terminus of the Harlem railroad. The completion ol the road from Hartford to Danbury, and an extension of the Harlem to connect at Danbury, would perfect the line of railroads from Maine to Georgia, and give us an internal route, by steam, from one end of the Union to the ot&er. These roads would connect this city with all the principal lines of New England, and with Albany, via the Housatonio road, and until a mure direct line was completed, would give us almost the exclusive control of the trade of the valley of the Connecticut,and give us a share of the great Northern trade, which the Eastern people are making such strenuous efforts to secure. An expeditious land communication with the interior, has become absolutely accessary to secure the permanent prosperity of this I city, and prevent our more enteiprising neighbor* from drawing away our trade. It is doubtful whether a rail [ road from New Vork to Albany could be made profita ble, in opposition to the river route, but a line connect, ing this city with Albany via the Eastern road*, would secure the land travel and freight of the interior, with out coming in competition with the boat* on the river, and drawing business from so many sources, could not be otherwise than productive. An extension of the Harlem to connect with the Danbury and Hartford road, would secure the Eastern and Northern trade, and we must look to the Erie railroad to secure the Western trade. We have the means to sustain our position as the commercial emporium of the Union?all we have to do is to use them judiciously and economically.

The manufactories of cotton goods in the United tatcs have turned out more fabrics thi* season than ever before in the samo perlbd, and the demand from the con Hirers has beeu much more limited this season than the ot responding one last year. Notwithstanding these ' ?'ing*, and in the face of a high tariff of dntie*, the im portaticn* of cotton and woulleu manufacture* of Great Jritnin into this country have increased about one hun Ired per cent in three month*. We have in this fact th e trongutcevidence in existence of the slight effect of . high tariff upon our importations. We see that the manufacturers of Europe can *end their fabric* to the markets of thi* country, in the face of the mo*t protec tive tariff, we hare ever enforced. Theie thing* how how defective the policy of the party profaning ?irotective principles is, and how short lighted ihcir view* are upon every *ubject regulating the ? oinmercial movements of the Union. The truth of matter is, that both parties have no *y*tsm of regula -ing commercial affair*, or, in other words, neither party iiave yet adopted the proper plan to carry out their prin ciples. The whig party advocate measure* that annul ?ach other. It is in favor of a protective tariff, and of an mlated paper currency. A currency based principally ipon paper issues, soon become* depreciated, and prices ?ecome inflated to *ueh an extent that the manufacturer* of Europe can, in consequence of the difference between heir currency and outs, obtain prices for their fabric* in ?sir markets sufficiently high to enable them to pay the greatest per cent duty, and mske good profit* out of he business. On the othei hand, the democratic party s striving to reduce the cm rency down to a sound spec le Mtsis, the accomplishment of which would advance the ?stablishmcnt ot domestic manufactures more than all the ariffs ever enforced, and shut out foreign manufactures ram our markets more effectually than the highest duty Che currency is the principal controling power, which. ?
