xVEW YORK HERALD. New York, Saturday, June 49, THE~WlEEKLY HERALD. Splendid Number. THE FUNERAL PROCESSION. THE " HERMITAGE." The Weekly Herald to be issued this morning ?i 9 o'clock will be one of the most valuable and inte resting numbers ever issued. The Funeral Proces sion of Tuesday last will be illustrated in a splendie series of engravings. A view of the " Hermi tage" will also be given; together with a beautiful wood-cut illustrative of a scene in the o|>era of Lu Favorite. Price Scents. Mexico and Texas. The mystery of the annexation of Texas to the United States is beginning to unfold itself gradual ly. The last accounts from Texas as well as from Mexico, begin to be exceedingly interesting, and to show beyond (he possibility of doubt or surmise, thut foreiyn intervention in American affairs, has been deeply at work in all previous movements to wards the consummation of the great measure of annexation. We believe that the administration and its organ ut Washington?meaning the Union newspaper?now admit that the first glimmerings of this extraordinary European interfe ence in the Texas question, originally afforded by this journal, are not idle surmises or silly reveries. The fact of the active interference of England and France in this question, has been now acknowledged by the Executive of Texas, as well as by Mexico hsrself The only question now, and a most important one it is, is how tar this interference will go?whether it will stop with diplomatic intrigue, or branch forth into the employment of physical force bo as to ac complish its ends 1 The last news from Texas must indeed be rather astounding to those who have not been regarding the recent movements in that republic with calmnessand intelligence, and who may have been blinded by the givings out of the government organ at Washington. Jones now admits that he lias been engaged in secret negotiations di rectly counter to his public declarations. Ac cording to all accounts, and we do not see any satisfactory reason as yet to discredit the statement, it appears that the terms offered to Mexi co for the recognition of Texan independence are payment of twenty millions of dollars, to be furnish ed by England, and the guarantee by France and England of alliance and aid in case of resistance of the annexatfon measure. In Texas the popular movements growing out of this state of affairs begin to assume a character of the greatest interest and most significant import. The Executive is no doubt entirely and resolutely opposed to annexa tion, and probably the best means of accomplishing its purpose will be to delay and impede as much as possible for some time the final action of the people. It is impossible at this stage to say what may be the result of the jiopular excitement which is now increasing so rapidly and deriving so much addi tional keeness and intensity in consequence of the course adopted by the government. Neither can we tell now how deeply compromised England, France and Mexico may be in that opposition to annexation, which has been conducted with such marked hostility to the United States. It is true that a great portion of the people of Tex as is in favor of annexation, and may carry it at all hazards, provided they be left to themselves. But the strong inducements in every point of view th it may be held out by England, may be such as to delay the accomplishment of the measure, until public opinion be essentially changed. In this case, the principal inducement that can be employed, short of actual physical force, would be an universal stipulation on the part of England Jo grant higher commercial privileges to the products of Texas than are now given to those of the United States. For instance, take the article of cotton. It is well known that the republic of Texas, with such a population as the Southern States of this Union now possess could, in a few years, cultivate cotton enough to sup^ ply all the factories of England and France. If a stipulaiion, therefore, giving a monopoly to the Texan cotton planters in the English market, to the detriment of the American planters, were offered by England, it is obvious that the strongest possible pecuniary inducement would be held out for the purpose of obtaining a direct change in the opinion of the majority of the people of Texas. This is only one view of the argument which may be brought to bear in the Congress of Texas and the Convention which is to meet in the early part of next month?an argument quite strong enough to shake the purpose not only of such men as Jones, now high in office, but also ot the majority of the people, however well disposed they may affect to be to annexation. From these views and from the developments by the last accounts from Texas, it is very clear to us, and we have every reason to believe that the myste ry of the annexation of Texas is becoming more and more involved in difficulty and doubt, and that the governments of France and England have not allowed their Ministers to engage in such a business without having some settled plan and purpose in view, and which plan no doubt they will carry out, with the full force of all the powers of control in their jwssession. In such u position of things it would be well for the governm?nt to look around and prepare for the worst. The present aspect of things is menacing in the extreme. That all must now allow. Tiik Organization of the New Police is pro ceeding rapidly under the new Superintendent, Ma jor Matsell. About five hundred men have parsed the ordeal, and some two or three hundred incompe tent candidates been rejected. .Several of the Cap tains and Assistant Captains, were sworn in at the Mayor's office yesterday, as well as some of the sub-Police force. The nominations are made by the Aldermen of the Wards, and in some instances they have been so silly as to nominate men who could neither read nor write; some ol these candidates being Irishmen, who have all, ol course, been rejcctrd, although nothing like "na tive" feeling exists in the selection. Adopted citi /ens, if competent, are just as eligible as any others The men selected are all intelligent and competent persons, and will doubtless make excellent officers The ordeal of examination is searching in the ex" treme, and nothing but abundant evidence of capa city and character will enable any to pass. The mere nomination of an Alderman goes for nothing In choosing the men, the Mayor is also careful in rigidly excluding all heretofore in the Police Depart ment, who have had any mysterious connection with burglars, thieves, and other offenders. When the organization is completed, we will have eight hundred men, active, faithful, efficient and compe tent in all res|iects to discharge their duties and pre serve the peace and order of the city, and the sect) rity of property in this great metropolis. It is grati fying to learn that such activity has prevailed du ring the past week in the Mayor's office, in relation to the appointments. The absence of a well organis ed Police force, has been leng felt as a crying grie' vance by the citizens of New York; and it is onl) to be wondered at, dnring the last tew months, when we have had no police at all, the small amount ol crime winch occurs in our city, taking into consi deration our vast population, who are left quite at the mercy of the gangs of rowdies, and loafers,whe intent us in our very midst. Lotto Island Railroad Riots.?We understand that the farmers on the line of the road in Suffolk County, have torn up the rails to some extent. Mails por Ei'jiope.?The letter bags of the Ca ledonia for Liverpool, will close in this city next Monday afternoon M*. SrcRFTAiir M.vaovS Movtmeits?A good leal of complaint has been made by the military of his city on account of Mr. Secretary Marcy'a per ming in the parade of last Thursday, as it was sup ed that alter the mournful pageant of Tuesday,h< mild have declined the honor, and alto on account f the fatigue which the citizen soldiery muat hav< xperienced. But these complaints are not at all vasonable. The military ought to consider Marcy't situation. For the last few years he has be?n in comparative retirement, and by the merest accident in the world, he has popped into the office of Secre tary of War. Besides, he has to make up a par ty in diis city, although his means to do it are rather limited at present, consisting original ly of what made him Governor oi this Stale ?charging fifty cents for mending an old pair of breeches. Still he must do the best he can, and is quite right in seizing advantage of every circum stantial God-send that may, by hook or crook, help him on. Then in looking after the defences,every one must admit that he is vigilant and faithful to his du ty ; brushing up his patriotism and preparing it the country should be menaced by France or England, to defend it at all hazards, as he once did when he was a young man. He has indeed a good deal of talent, mixed, to be sure,with a good deal of hum bug, which, after all, is a species of talent quite ser viceable to your politicians. Besides, has not Mar cy actually declined a public dinner 1 He is posi tively modest. The Custom House of this city, too, is now or ganized to Marcy's satisfaction. He has now got three principal advisers and friends in this region? Prosper M. Wetmore, Elijah F. Purdy, and Jona than D. Stevenson. All who want offices in the Custom House under the new regime can act ac cordingly. The Suppressed Speech.?The remarks of the Cauritr and Enquirer, relative to the suppression, uftsr it was in type at the Union office, of a speech delivered by John C. Rives, before the democratic association of Washington,have elicited a very warm hut not altogether satisfactory reply from the go vernment organ. It denies that the press was stop ped?it denies that the editor posted off to the Pre sident?it denies that the President summoned his official advisers, but the gravamen of the charge is admitted by the Union, and thus in its^ssential par ticulars it holds good, and remains unaffected by the somewhat petulant reply of the organ. That such a speech was Bet up in type at the Union office? that on seeing the proof the editor immediately wrote to the author, requesting him to defer its pub lication till after the funeral solemnities in honor of the memory of General Jackson, and that it was accordingly " suspended." The speech, which has thus acquired greater interest than it would intrin sically have possessed, has been published in the United States Journal, without alteration, and like the letter of Major Lewis, published in Tennessee, shows that on his dying bed Jackson disapproved cf several of the movements of Mr. Polk, particularly that u|>setting the Kitchen Cabinet. But although General Jackson may have disapproved of that, we most heartily commend it, and so does the whole country. Custom House Movements.?There is a perfect mystery about the movements going on in the Cus tom House during the last few days. We under stand that thirty or forty removals have taken place, and as many new api>ointments been made; and that amongst the rest the venerable Thomas Cooper, father-in-law of Captain Bob Tyler, has been ap pointed to some office. The most singular surmises have been indulged by the politicians in relation to these movements in that mysterious building. It is supposed that the present action of the Collector will be confirm?d by his successor. And it is also supp sed that Prosper M. Wetmore, Elijah F. Pur dy and Cornelius W. Lawrence will be the nucleus of the new party now forming in the bowels of the democracy, and by which Mr. Marcy is to be here after raised to some advanced position in the go vernment. At all events the appointment of Mr. Lawrence is very unsatisfactory to the party that clamored so in cessantly for the removal of Mr. Van Ness. The friends of Mr. Van Buren consider themselves to have been completely check-mated in this move ment by the President himself, and the indignation against Marcy is not loud but deep is showing itself in many quarters. We say to old breeches, fifty cents per patch, " go ahead!" Corporation Excursion.? Nowlan's Hotel.? Hon. Sec'y Marcy, attended by a numerous party of friends, civic and military officers, made an excur sion yesterday to view the water works, <tec. After viewing the great reservoir, the acquednct at Mc Cooinb's Dam and other places,the party repaired to Harlem, where Mr. Nowlan was prepared in his new hotel to receive them in a fitting way. This estab lishment has just been opened by Mr. Nowlan, where he is ready to furnish visitors with break fasts, dinners, tea, suppers, and other refreshments on the shortest notice. It i> situated on the river side and quite close to the Harlem Railroad, by which passengers can be conveyed for a shilling from the City Hall. Mr. Nowlan gave a general in vitation to visitors to call and see him, and none will be more welcome than his military friends, for whom there is good parade ground and every ac commodation. Well, after all this, who will refuse to patronise Mr. Nowlan, the identical Mr. Now lan who kept Prospect Hall, near Yorkville, a very short time age, but whose courtesy wouli be as well remembered if it were ten times as far back ? Laying a Corner Stone.?Yesierday morning the chief quoin of Mr. Stewart's new and superb ware house, now erecting on the former site of Washing ton Hall, was laid in presence of a good number of spectators. Among the rest, the Secretary of War, the Vice Chancellor, and Mayor. It is a large block of granite, nine feet by three; in the centre is a cavity, in which was deposited a copper box, con taining a few coins, and with a few of the news papers of the day, a copy of the Herald containing the representation of the obsequies in honor of Gen eral Jackson. Posterity will?one day be edified by ?t discovery of these interesting relics of the present age. _ New Summer Drink.?By referring to our adver tising columns, under the head of " Something New und Useful," it will be perceived that a new species of transportable summer drink has been brought before the public by Mr. L. Joachimsen, 129 Attorney street, in the shape of Orgeat Paste, which, when dissolved in water, forms a healthy and pleasant drink, it is neatly put up in boxes, and will keep in any climate. The Hon. Danikl Webstkii, who has been in the ' city for some time upon professional business, left the " Astor " yesterday, for his residence at Marsh Held, Massachusetts. Hon. Wilson Shannon, Mi nister from Mexico, is still at the City Hotel, invi sible from impaired health. The Hon. W. L Mar cy, Secretary of War, remains at the American, having so far completed his official survey of forti" tications. The Polite Captain'The passengers by the packet ship Baltimore, lately arrived from Havre, addressed a letter to Captain Funck, expressive of their appreciation of his kind and gentlemanly con duct towards them during the passage; they also in cluded the worthy Captain's brother in their vote of thanks. The Streets.?The hot weather is now begin ning and many of the streets are in a bad condition. Let the Corporation look to this. There is no ex cuse for any negligence in this respect. Steamship New York, Captain Wright, having uade her last trip to (^alvecton for this season, isao ertised to leave lor New York on Tueaday next. Thi* ine veuel ha* made 3M tripi between thii port and (Jal vflnton, without accident or (attaining any damage.?AT. 0, Trfif, Junr 17.

Anoint,or Texas.?The following Utter ca*ie < great deal of interesting light on tha recent in 'rigues of the Executive of Texas, and an>eart t< 4hw very conclusively the connection of Jon?v and Houston with the anti-annexation movement* now beginning to be so clearly revealed. It musi be confessed that the portrait which ia given oi the Ex-rresident oi Texas is by no means flattering - Mr. Archer, however, has doublesa had ample op portnmties of becoming Acquainted with the man whose character he sketches with so much fear lessness; and of its general fidelity, all who have been studying the recent movements in Texas, in which Houston, even according to his own state ment, took no inactive part, may be enabled to form a correct judgment. It will be perceived from the note which accom panies the letter, that it was refused insertion in the Union?a circumstance certainly worthy of note, and from which mgmficant conclusions may be drawn. Here are the communications New York, June 37, 1849. To tfjx Editor op the New Yoke Herald Dear Sir :? You will find encloied a letter addressed to Mr. Tho mas Ritchie, which (as you will see) was intended for publication in the paper under his direction. For rea sons unknown to me, Mr. Ritchie has declined to publish, and roturned the letter. From the letter Itself you will understand the object. It is to exclude from the democratic ranks of this nation a man who would disgrace any association of honorable men. I state this upon my own knowledge and responsi bility; my veracity never having been questioned in any commuuity in which I have had the pleasure to live. When I pronounce Gen. Sam. Houston, an unprinci pled and perjured demagogue, I pledge myself to esta blish the charge in any court of record, in this or any other country. Why Mr. Ritchie should desire to iden tify Gen. Houston with his party, is a matter past my divination. It is, however, his privilege to extend to the General a filial embrace, and adopt him as his own, though I for one enter ray solemn protest against his re ception I, therefore, request, tir, that you'will publish in vour useful and widely circulating journal, this lotter, with tho letter addressed to Mr. Ritchie. Permit me here, sir, to romark, that information has this evening been received, that Gen. Houston lias been elected a member of the Texan Convention. Though no prophet, or the son of a prophet, I venture to predict that ho will aot dare attend that conventiou. Respectfully, your ob't servant, B. T. Archer. James G. Brnnktt, Esq. New York, Juno 14th, 1845. To tiii: Editor or the Union :? Dear Sir, In your paper of the 6th instant, you have quoted largely from the AT. O. Republican, and from a letter from Gen. Jackson, the effect or which quotations is to identify your paper and the administration with Oen Sam Hous ton. You do not know Houston as 1 know him. And as tho tendency of your remarks, and ol the extracts which you havo quoted, is to perpetrate n fraud upon the people of this country, a fraud deeply injurious to the interests of Texas, I claim the privilege of replying to them, and setting the public tight as to Gen. Houston's character nnd purposes. The published letter of the British minister in Texas, proves that Gen. Houston and Dr. Jones pledged them selves to the British government that they wero opposed to annexation. The Tact that they wero so opposed is notorious in Texas; and if it had not been so before the late developments of Jones', diplomatic intrigues with the British minister are conclusive. For it is folly to at tempt to separato Jones and Houston. They are identi cal, as is further known by the fact that having reached Galveston on his way to the United States, he there as certained that the public sentiment of Texas had reach ed a crisis which threatened destruction to him and his faction, if he did not more with the current; and there fore he hastened to Washington, and induced Jones to issue|his proclamation calling a convention to meet on the 4th o f July. Finding that he could not arrest the torrent of public opinion, he resolved, if possible, to put himself at the head of the movement. But, sir, that was not all His policy ha* been to array Western Texas against Kastern Texas, that he might put himself at the head of the stronger against the weaker interest; and he has gone so far as to iuduce Jones to usurp the right to ap portion the representatives in the convention to meet on the 4th oi July, because he feared to leave that question witli the Congress; and because he hoped by this usur pation, to give to the eastern counties a larger represen tation in the State -Legislature than lie could otherwise do, hoping thereby to increase his chanoe* of getting to the Senate. He has not only refused to give that pro tection to the west which it was his duty, as the Presi dent of the republic, to give, but ho has done all that he could do to arrest emigration to the west, and by divi ding the republic on sectional questions, the sea' of go vernment and census question, and arraying himself with what he conceived to he the strongest interest, to keep a personal popularity at the expense of the repub lic. He tins done more than this. By a contract made with CharlesTenton VUmer,without authority of law, he has endeavored to so locate the emigration coming into the republic, as to strengthen his personal and political infiucnco, by fraudulently granting to Mr. Muner and his British abolition associates, the right to colonise a large district of the Anest and best lands in Texas, said to contain near twelve millions of acres. A grant made, as I repeat, without authority of law, and closing the l&nd office to those who had had right claims and military , bounty warrants, and which illegally deprived tho old settlers, who had conquered the country, of their just rights, and granting millions of their best lands to Mr Muner nnd British abolitionists. In this Gen. Houston has overdone his part. The fraud has excited a feeling of indignation against him, which manifested itsejf in the proceedings in every part of the republic, aAd gave a deeper feeling to the demand for annexation. One of the inducements to which, was a desire to redeem the country from the corrupt men into whose hands the cor rupt intrigues of Houston had betrayed it. We are at no loss for the object of his visit to the Her mitage. Houston sees in the annexation of Texas, an opportunity of transferring his intrigues to another thea tre. He is (we are told) already a candidate for the Pre sidency ol the United States; and we, who know the excess of his vanity, and the former success of his dupli city and cunning, can easily credit the report. To attain this preferment, he seeks first to reach tne Senate of the United States, and he wishes to obtain the endorsement of General Jackson, and of the administration at Wash ington, that be may persuade the people of Texas that lie is to be the channel through which the patronage at Washington is to be difpenied. Hence although it is no torious that he was drunk during the greater part of the time that he was at Washington, during the 1p to session of the Texian Congress, he now comes to New Orleans to make temperance speeches ; and hence he has the in delicacy to drag in his wife's name, and his wife's reli ?;ion, as constituting one element of his claims to popu ar favor. But above all, Sir, permit me to call your attention to General Houston's own confessions, made to a late pub lic meeting held in the city of New Orleans. Did he not there acknowledge that he had as President of the Republic of Texaa, l>een guilty of insincerity and de ception, duplicity and cunning, in treating with high minded honorable gentlemen representing two govern ments, (F.ngland and France,) notorious tor their strict honor and rigid observance of good faith in all matters in which they may have been concerned?two nations that had at an early period ofTexan difficulties recognised the independence of her government, and in good faith sent accredited agents to conduct an honorable interchange of mutual obligations and duties between the parties. What, may I ask, will bo tiie feelings of the honorablo gentlemeu who have been duped by the infidelity and falsehood of General Houston ? And what tho indigna tion of their respective government*, when they find they have been treating with a nation confiding their na tional character to the keeping of such a man as General Samuel Houston I Tho governments of Algiers, Tunis, Tripoli, or even Mexico, in their most reckless contempt of national obligation and good faith, would not have made an acknowledgment so humiliating to their coun tries ; and yet General Houston, late President of Texas, gives to his falsehoods the softer name of " coquetry." What unblushing guilt has marked this man's whole ca reer! I will not trouble you with detail*, connected with the moral turpitude of hi* nature. Though, be as sured, if there was one rodecming$rait in his character, I would hail it as a green spot in the waste of morals. I doom it my duty, as a citizen of Texas, knowing Gen. Sam. Houston well, and that he ha* at all times been a withering blight upon her destinies, to protest against your identifying your paper, or the administration. with him or hi* corrupt and hypocritical proceedings. I sign my own proper name to this latter, because its character is such as to require that I alone should be held respon sible for it. Most respectfully, Your friend and servant, Bsiren T. Arcmkr. Thomas Ritchie, Esq. The Mexican ask Texan Treaty.?The term* or conditions of the negotiations which have beeii conducted between Mexico and Texas, under the aus {lices of the English and French governments, were uui aid before the public with the President's Proclamation They were probably presented to Congress on Mondu) last. We have reason to believo that tne articles are few ia number, and relate only? 1st. To the recognition of Independence. ltd. The refuial of Texa* to be inncxed to the United State*, or any other power. 3d. The establishment of boundaries. 4th. Tho providing of an arbitration, in case the parties should not agree upon a boundary. None of the inducements which led to the negotiation as a matter of courae, are mentioned in the documout Tho private history of the transaction i* also withheld The indemnity, spoken ol by the Mcxican letter-writers, a* gathered from the Havana pros*, does not appear. a? we learn, in tho treaty, nor does the guaranty ol England and France. That there aro other stipulations ana un derstandings than those written for the public eye, we have little doubt. The Proclamation of an aimistice b> President Jones was one of these. It is more than pro bable that tho failure of the plot to prevent annexation will make it tho policy of those coucerned to supiires all proceeding* that have not already seen the light Owing to this fact, tho darkor phases of tho conspiracy will not bo seen by this generation.?S. O. Pic., June 111 Fire in New Brunswick.?We learn thnt there wan a large lire on Thursday night in New Kruns wick. It appear* that some promises belonging t? Griggs li Co., were let on fire a tew days ago, which cir cumstance induced tho owners to get their property in sured to the amount of $4,000. Thursday nigfit, about 11 o'clock, during the absence of Mr. O. at Warren, the lumber in the yanl and some hack buildings were consu mod t>y fire. A considerable portion of the buildings would havo been savod had it not been for several casks of gunpowder which were stored in them. This fact ren dered the greatest caution necessary, or a great los* ol life might otherwise have ensued. Alter the explosion of the gunpowder, the fire wm soon subdued. Griggs it Co. rtslained ft loss of fl.OOO b* Dm about two month* ago, TluatrlMli. French Omou.?The second performance of "Lb Favorite" went off extremely well laat night, and We can po iitmly assert, that there never haa beer brought out in New York an opera of that magni tude with auch a remarkable tnumbit, from the first bar to the last. There reigns throughout a per fect symmetry?in the orchestra?the chorus?and the ringers. Calv6 and Arnaud did extremely wel' us on the first night, but Garry took the public by surprise; he sung with an entrain fire and expres sion, particularly in the third act, which, in connec tion with his rare and melodioua voice, cannot fai' to place him?with proper study, as he evidently is a dfbiitant?in the first rank amongst baritones. Much praise is due to Ccsuriot, the first tenor of the comic opera, for having taken upon himself a minor part; it materially contributed to the unity of the whole opera. Prevost's leading is the best we have ever had in America; he carries every thing along, from his being fully identified with the part of every individual performer; he truly leads the singers in stead of following them. One of the most interest ing features of the opera is the chorusses, both with regard to composition and execution ; they are admirable. Mr. Davis has really evinced uncom mon tact in the selection of the company and all the arrangements in general, and we are certain, that his efforts will be crowned with success. Casti.k Garden.?A large audience again last night were attracted to this delightful spot,and found it beyond comparison, the coolest and most delight ful spot in the city. The promenade outside was thronged with visitors, who were enjoying the cool sea breeze and beautiful view of the bay and sur rounding scenery. The entertainments are varied and interesting, comprising Overtures, Ancient Sta tuary, dancing and comic tableaux. To-night a most amusing bill is Bet forth. Niblo's Gardkn?Mr. Robirts' Benefit-?To night this popular performer takes his first Benefit in America, and if he receive one commensurate with his talent, he will be amply remunerated. An excellent selection of entertainments is announced? ?'One Hour,"with the Polka,which is nightly honor ed with an encore; the "Married Rake,"the Acrobat Family in their astonishing and graceful perform ances, and the last new piecc of the "Trumpeter's Daughter." In the course of the evening, Mr. Ro berts will sing the celebrated comic song by Parry, called the Musical Wife. ThiB is an admirably va ried bill of fare, and will, no doubt, at ract all Mr. R.'s friends, und many of the strangers in the city.

Great preparations are making here to celebrate the glorious Fourth of July. All kinds of amusements will be given, and such a display of Fireworks by Edge as has been rarely, if ever witnessed. Patjko's Opera House.?The Ethiopian burlesque compiny are giving great satisfaction by their cle ver burlesques of some of our most popular operas. To-night they perform one on the Somnambula, or as they express it, Som-am-Bull-Ole, all the original music being retained. Vattxhall Garden.?The dances and comic songs, together with the performances of die Ethio Cian Operatic Brothers and Sisters, form a most li eral evening's amusement at this establishment.? It is visited nightly by a highly select company, and Mr. IJelaree, the manager, deserves credit for his enterprise. This evening they have, as usual, an excellent bill. New Bowery Theatre.?We understand this theatre has passed into the hands of Mr. Champlin, and that he will open on Tuesday next. To Recruit Health and Enjoy Life should be the object of all?particularly the trade bound of the great towns with which the earth is dotted. It is not every large city that affords such ample means for this most necersary object of our existence as " Old Gotham" herself. But be that as it may, they are of little utility unless they are amply appreciated by those who need it. We cordially respond to one of the able writers of this country,? " Go forth into the fieldi, Ye dwellers in the city'i troubled mart; Qo forth to know the influence nature yield*, To 100th the wearied heart" And for this object, nature in her all bountiful provi dence has given us a Hoboken; and it is pleasing to know that it is daily growing in public estimation. Indeed it cannot be well otherwise?hundreds daily flock to this delightful spot to recruit fatigued nature, and hide from the busy turmoil of this life, if only for a few hours. There are other spots to some?to many, equally inviting?we have Staten Island, with the capacious bay, iis splendid establishments?where every thing that is needed for health and comfort is amply provided. The beautiful ride along the beach to Fort Hamilton affords both health and ex ercise, aifording beneficial effects alike to the care worn invalid and the pent up citizen. Here, too, there iB every comfort provided?every courtesy of fered, at the establishment of one of the best of caterers, Alonzo Reed; and in addition to which, the ride per steam packet, which now runs regularly, is worth more than all the expense or loss of time incurred. There are others too, in the immediate neighborhood, equally worthy of notice. The Tri ton Mansion House, at McComb's dam, is well worthy of a visit; nor does the Bath Buildings at Long Branch, New Jersey, fail behind in respecta bility and accommodation, with the best of sea bathing. The Williamsburgh Cottage, too, affords every accommodation that can be required. But there are few or none that can surpass the Marine Pavilion, Kockaway, for all these comforts and ne cessaries combined. Here the most perfect seclu sion may be obtained; or, if it i&desired, the most respectable and intelligent circle of visitors. Nor are these the only places where these most desired objects are to be obtained. On this island we have some most beautiful retreats. There is Nowlan's, near Harlem : the Abbey, Stryker's Bay, and a host of others. What can be more delightful than a ride along the avenues, or otherwise to Lake Mahopac?one of the most quiet, beau titiul places in the vicinity of this city, and those fond of fine sailing, and good fishing, will And every facility for the enjoyment of these sports.? The lake iB about seven miles in extent, and af ford some delightful places on its shores tor pic nic parties. It is one of those peaceful retreats where the citizen can enjoy all the comforts of a pure country life, undisturbed by the bustle and noise of u more fashionable watering place.

The second heat was decided by the judge to be a dead one. between Newburgh and Ephrairn Smooth, but we believe that every one else on the ground judged it to have been won by Newburgh by naif a neck at the least. Such dead heats will do more to spoil true sport than any thing else. The next was a match of three miles for $30, be tween Col Bartine's ch. h. Prelinghuysen, ana II Jones's pony, Black Joke. They kept well together for the first mile, but at the end the Colonel's superior tact told, and he went in front, which position ne maintained for the other two miles, but not without every endeavor of H Jones to come up with him, but alas, without suc cess. The Colonel came home a winner some five or six lengths in front, in 8 4.

A person of the name of A. J.

Their bodies lay undiscovered until Tues day morning, and when found, the bodies of two of the individual* were considerably eaten and torn by tho hogs.

Brooklyn City lntclllgenMi Junk 27.?Amongst the vast improvements dai'y taking place in this city, we cannot omit noticing the opening of Plymouth street, which commences west of the Nary Yard, and will run, when finished, in a direct line from Jackson street, crossing Gold and Bridge streets. The undertaking, though not heavy, will be tedious, as the street has to be cut through a very large gravel hill, which is in some places at least thirty feot above tho level of the itreet, and about three hundred feet in length. A number of men are daily employed cutting the road through, principally lriihmen, who re side in and about tho neighborhood. Right and left ol the proposed line, there are several small wood en houses scattered over this hill, and which have, with most persons in the neighborhood, assamed the name of the " Irish Colony," from the vast number of is dividual* who hail from the land of the "great Saint."? Some of those dwelling* contain two and three lamilie*, though being of rather a limited lize, who are either me chanic* or laborer*.

In the ship department there aro two very line vessels nearly built one a sloop of war, the other a brig, which, when finished, will not, we can say with safety, be second to aiiy vessels previously built in the yard.

'on up and act in the aame maimer. I tried all the me >ns ? ,thin my reach to get it cured. I even went to Phila delphia, and conanlted the most eminent physicians there, but without effect. One of them gave me some medicine that dried them up for the time being ; but after a short time they- bioke out afresh, and worse than ever. I was advised by one of my neighbora to try your Kxtracl of Sarsavarilta. I procured one bottle from your Agents, Keyes & Smith, of this place, and to my great astonishment, I found it helped me much. I then pro cured another bottle from the same persons, which entirely healed all mv sores, so that 1 can now woik at my trade of farm ins, as well as I ever did in my life. My sores are all healed, and 1 now feel perfectly well in my body. I never felt better.
