NEW YORK HERALD. New fork, Sunday, Jane MO, 1MB. Texas?The " riilon"?CoramlMloner Elliott. The Union newspaper, the or^an of the govern nient, is still full of its singular ideas of the receni movements in Texas. With a degree of verdancy almost incredible, (he Union now seizes upon a con versation of Mr. Elliott, retailed by some one who met him in a steamboat, and writes the gossip to a friend in Washington, and gravely holds it up as a proof positive of the absolute certainty of annexa tion, and the utter defeat of all the crafty diplomacy of the British Commissioner. But here see how gre enthe Union really is :? [From the Union.] From Te?*s.?The following letters, which were brought hv the Wednesday'* mail from New Orleans, are calculated t? remote every |>ossible doubt about an nexation. The one it from a citizen of Texas, at New Orleam. who details u conversation with Captain Elliott. Even the Captain had given up the ship; anJ stated that, not only would Texas positively accent the annexation, but that Oreat Britain would immediately abandon her schemes, and that Mexico would thereupon forbear to declare war against the Hatted States. "Capt. Klliott. her Britannic Majesty's Charge, came over passenger; I met him on his arrival at the hotel. He laughs and talks as usual, and appears in good spirits ?freely acknowledges that all is settled in Texas, and that annexation is certain; that there will be no difficulty between .Mexico and the United States. He said : three years ago, or more, when he went to Texas, he found th? country going very faat to leeward; that when he left it the other day, he presented us with independence; that the late revolution in Mexico, bringing into power men of more liberal views, had enabled her Majesty's government to realize the assurances made to us in 1840 ov Lord Palmerston, that England would use her kind efforts with Mexico to grant us peace and independence; that it was gratifying to him that it had be jn accom plished. England will have nothing to say about annex ation, a* it is a matter renting entirely with the people of Texas He will leave for the North; and never expects to go back to Texas, unless he is ordered to do so by his go vernment;which he is certain will never be the case,See " The idea that Mr. EUiott is thus revealing all the result* of his diplomacy, and thut any of his steam boat chit-chat is to be taken as gospel, could hardly ! have entered the head of any one but the govern- i meat organ. Mr. Elliott is about the very last man I in the world to go about in steamboats retailing the secrets of his movements. He doubtless talks quite freely, and it is quite clear from the Union that he catches the gudgeons effectually. Houston in his perambulations appears to adopt the same game, and also talks with a perfect looseness. There is, in deed, little doubt that Jones, Houston and Elliott, are all engaged in an effort to gull and dupe and deceive the people of this country and of Texas, by all sorts of finesse and misrepresentation. The great object now, is to lull the people both of the United States and Texas into the belief that annex ation is quite certain, in order to gain time and op portunity for operating on the public opinion of the Texan people, so as to obtain a majority against an nexation in the Convention and Congress. Can any one who looks upon the movements of the last year or two in Texas, doubt for a moment the success thus far of the representations of France and England ? And can we doubt that the same powerful, industrious and secret influence, by which Mr. Elliott and M. Saligny have prevailed upon Jones and Houston to take that course, which even the Union in its blindness and verdan cy has been enabled to perceive is " suspicious" and " improper," and to be "investigated"?will be able to have a similar eflect upon the members of Congress 1 Are the Congressmen and delegates to the convention invulnerable 1 What reason have we to believe that they will be quite deaf to the " arguments" of Mr. EUiott?this shrewd, crafty, active, efficient diplo matist, who goes about, as the Union thinks, blab bing all his secrets in every steamboat which con veys him from place to place 1 And even suppose these "arguments" could have no effect on the Con gressmen who are represented as in favor of annex ation, is there not good reason to believe that the whole of these givings-out by Elliott may be merely a feint for the purpose of gaining time and lulling ap prehension, so as to carry his schemes ultimately even at the expense of a civil war in Texas, which would be used as the pretext for calling for the inter vention of England and France, and the effectual defeat of annexation by the sword 7 We do believe that through the superior finesse of the British agent, and the immeasurable verdancy of the government organ at Washington, Texas is nearer being lost to this country than ever. A civil war in that republic is not at all unlikely, and out of that must grow most serious difficulty between this country and Mexico, and ultimately with England. riscopAL Convention.?In view of the approach ing Eiscopal Convention in this State, several pri vate meetings have been held, and a secret canvass has been very understanding^ prosecuted. It ap pears that of the clergy,ninety are in favor of Bishop Onderdonk, and seventy opposed"to him. A large majority of the laity, however, it is calculated, will oppose him. The Hishop's adherents are most re solutely determined to support him to the last, and we have every reason to believe that a great con flict and serious explosion will take place in the Episcopal ranks. The Bishop does not receive his salary, but voluntary contributions are poured in upon him from all quarters, amounting in the aggre gate to a much larger sum than his salary. It is par ticularly worthy of note, that the old maiden ladies and widows of the flock have been liberal to an ex traordinary degree, in these pious donations to the Bishop, whom they regard as a deeply injured and persecuted man?far "more sinned against than sin ning." Another fact may be mentioned as indicative of the strength of the Bishop's party. Dr. Seabury, who has been a prominent |>oint of attack in rela tion to the doctrines now forming the subject of controversy in the Episcopal Church, and who has been assailed so violently in the organ of the Low Churchmen, the Courier and Enquirer, has been re-elected one of the Trustees of the Theological luminary by a great majority. Reforms of Mayor Havemeyek.?His Honor the Mayor has issued his proclamation forbidding al| traffic on Sundays, except in meats, inilk and fish, which may be sold before nine in the morning? prohibiting altogether the sale of intoxicating liquors on that day, except to lodgers in hotels and taverns, and persons actually travelling, in the cas?s allowed by law. Magisterial interference for the prevention of gross public acts of immorality?drunkenness, rowdyism and soon, is, when judiciously exercised, all very good. But it is quite possible to carry it too far. The practicc of reviving old statutes for the prevention, ostensibly, of the desecration of the Sabbath, and interfering with the social and in dividual rights of the community, is likely to be come very un|>opuiar. If the Mayor go as far in his rigid principles as Mayor Harper, he will speedily become as unpopular as Mayor Harper. However, we will see to-day what he means to do Vksski-s ok War in tux Gulf.?In addition to the squadron at Vera Cruz, under Com. Conner, and at Galveston, under Capt. Stockton, a small fleet of Revenue Cutters have been ordered to that station. The Woodbury is already there, and the Spencer sailed from this port a few days ago, and the Geo. M. Bibb from Pittsburg on the 21th inst., to co-ope rate with the Woodbury,as express despatch vessels. The S. and G. M. B. are steamers. All these ves sels can concentrate on any one point in a week's notice. ranrnv Church.?This large and imposing edi fice hah be?n at length completed. The cap-stone was laid with rejoicing on the top of the steeple on I nday last, and soon after a white eagle lighted upon it and there brooded in perfect repose for an hoar A good omen, signifying t|lc church ? soon to have a Bishop arrayed in white garments, and perfectly purified; but whether lJiahop Onder donk, washed inithe waters of repentance, is to be the ruler in Israel, it is hard yet to tell. Stkam Ship Caledonia.?This mail packet leave* Boston next Tuesday. Her letter bags will close it ?his oity to-morrow afternoon Th?atrleU<. Pa** Tmiat**.?The successful open of La Favorite, will be performed to-morrow evening This is one of the moal admirable operaa that has been got up in New York for some lime past, and the singing of M'lle Calvt, and the remainder oi the company is quite in keeping with the character of the piece. Castle Garden.?To-night there is a concert of saored music here, and the garden is open during the day for promenade. Those who are in doubt as to where they shall make their Sunday .jaunt, cannot do better than settle on this spot. Palmo's.?The Ethiopians will to-morraw even ing produce a burlesque on the "Bayadere," in which will be introduced an extravaganza shawl dance, a solo on the accordion by Mr. Huntley, and the "Virginian Girl" will make up the remainder of the evening's entertainments. Vaitxhall Garden.?To-morrow evening there will be some excellent performances, in which seve ral admirable comic actors will appear. Sporting Intelligence. x he races about to come off on the Beacon course are creating [considerable excitement in sporting circles. The large number of entries tor the foot races, and the reputation of some of the competitors, will ensure a spirited contest. The betting is so va ried that it is somewhat difficult to tell which is the favorite. Stannard, Barlow, and Jackson have strong backers, and even bets to some extent have been made on each in the one mile race. The Ma jor is in fine condition, and will, without doubt, astonish many of his opponents. There has not been much done in the walking match. Vermilyea is the favorite. Barlow has entered for the live mile race, and it is supposed he will prove as hard u customer as his namesake did in the great races last fail. So far Jackson the American deer, is the favorite in this race, while the Canada friends of the Iroquois In dian are backing him to any amount against any other one. Jaekson is not in prime condition, being just off a long voyage: he is a very small man, being only five feet two inches in height, and his running weight about 100 lbs. Tne Hurdle Itace will be very interesting, but it is not sufficiently understood in the sporting circles of this latitude, to create much excitement; butmust become in time very common on our courses. The ten miles Foot Race will, without doubt, be the greatest performance of the kind ever made in this country. The struggle will be between the Ameri can deer, Gildcrsleeve, and Steep flock, the Indian, the betting on each being even. The time made by Jackson, in running this distance, gives his friends great confidence in his ability to outstrip all compe titors. Release of Dorr.?Tom Dorr has at last been liberated from prison. The papers are full of the most contradictory expressions of opinion on the subject?one class being frantic with joy, and the other full of bitterness. This question is indeed so mixed up with personal feelings and private and lo cal quarrels, that it is difficult to disentangle it and ascertain its real merits. Release of (rov. Dorr.?News of the release of Dorr, had reached Providence when the cars left there on Friday. Me comes out uncon ditionally, but is not restored to citizenship, unless he swears he "will bear true faith and alle giance to the State of Rhode Island, and to support the constitution," &c. A special express was immediately despatched to Boston with the intelligence. Great was the excite ment at Providence?flags were hoisted, firing of cannon. Handbills were issued,calling upon the peo ple to assemble en matte upon the great bridge, at half past seven o'clock, and march, accompanied by music, to the residence of H. P. Willard, Esq., where a speech would be delivered by Mr. Dorr, and it was expected every possible demonstra tion of rejoicing would follow. Flags were hoisted and cannon firing at Stonington, when the steamboat left there on Friday evening. The Providence Herald of Friday, contains the following:? We stop the press to announce the Tact that the bill bo fore the Legislature for the liberation of Gov. Dorr, and for a general amnesty, as given in our legislative pro ceedings, was passed into a law > osterday morning. The news, together with an authenticated copy of the act, wan brought to this city yesterday, at (half past two o'clock, and was immediately carried over to the prison by Walter 8. Burges, who took with him a carriage to receive Gov Dorr, and convoy him from the loathsome scene of his wrongs and sufl'erings, who is, now at 3j o'clock, making preparations to quit the prison. Hundreds of citizens are crowding the pri son door, and hundreds more, in carriages, on horseback, and on foot, are thronging the roads leading to that hated place, to get a glimpse at this victim of persecution, and once more welcome him on his restoration to his friends, the people, and to the world. He comes forth, not restored to his civil right*, but he comes to receive a joyful welcome, and the deepest lym Eathv and the warmest reception, from a people who ighly appreciate his public services and noble sacrifice in their behalf. The citizens are animated by a warm and generous enthusiasm by this event, but the most commendable tranquillity prevails in the city. The loud booming ol the cannon from Smith's and Federal Hills, and the waving of the flags from the hickory poles and flag staves, give unequivocal tokens of the general and undisguised joy which pervades all ranks and sexes in the city. Gov. Dorr is now restored to his liberty, and the people are rejoicing with exceed ing great joy. Nkw Mexico.?The present Governor of New Mexico is a man named Chaves, a brother, it we are rightly informed, of the individual murdered by McDaniel on the prairies a year or two lince. Thi* Chares family ia the wealthiest and most respectable in New Mexico, nearly every member of it bearing a good character. Armijo, the former Governor, ii said to be residing at his estate at Albuquerque, the largest town in the department, and situated on this aide the Rio Grande. What will the heartless wretch think should annexation and boundary lines throw him within tho limits of the United States ? He never deemed an event of this kind likely to take place when treating Ameri cans with a brutality unparalleled. Improvements at Cumberland, Md.?Cumber land is still growing in size and beauty. Almost at every turn may be seen fine brick houses running up. On Broad street, there are some ten or a dozen brick buildings in progress towards completion ; South Liber ty is also giving abundant evidence of a laudable spirit of improvement?as also 8. N. N. Mechanic, Bedford, Blocher and Frederick streets. And this spirit of im provement is not confined to the business portion of the town, but extends to the west side of Wills' Creek, where there are several fine edifices going up. Small wood street, on the same side of the creek, is aoout to be paved, which will add much to the appearance and com fort of that section of the town. Boatings Freshet.?The steady rains with which we were visited on Saturday and Sunday last, says the Cumberland Civilian, caused a rise in the North Branch of the Potomac sufficient to render it in fine navi Skble order for boating coal. This is the first freshet of e season ; and although our boatmen were illy pre pared to receive it, they succeeded in getting oft some fifteen or sixteen boats on Monday?mostly keels?ave raging, we should think, about 1000 bushels to the boat Fire is Roxburv.?On Thursday night the Tre inont Starch Factory, in Roxbury, was discovered to be on fire, and before it could be extinguished the building was nearly destroyed. A ranpe of wooden dwelling houses near it, occupied by several Irish fami lies, anil owned by James Card, was also very much in jured. The factory, with its stock, lie., was valued at $7000, and was damaged probably to a little more than half that amount. The loss is fully covered by insu ranee. It is the general belief that the building was set on fire. Movements of Travellers. \ esterday was in every respect discouraging to the travelling community, and the Hotels lost much of that bustle, that a few previous days had produced. This ii generally the case at the conclusion of the week.? There are at the Amkrican?John Parks, Vermont: Mr. Jones, Brock ville. C. W.; Mr. Croswell, Albany; J. H, Gibbon*, V. C.; A.

Mr. Alarcy, Secretary at War, was the guest on the occasion, and he cannot but be pleased with the at- j tention shown him, and the judicious manner in j which our civic authorities managed the affair. At about half past nine o'clock in the morning, the party assembled at the City Hall, where twenty-si* I coaches awaited to convey them over their proposed I route A large number of the Aldermen and Assis tants were on the ground, together with the Senators comprising the Court of Errors, Gen. Wool and staff, Capt. Hudson of the naval department, Major Delalield, and many respectable citizens, who were invited to partake in the day's recreation. First they visited the Alms House at Bellevue, the internal management of which gave great satisfaction, and impressed the party with the great care take a bv the present directors to administer its affair* so as to effect the end for which it exists. From this place the long line of coaches rolled merrily on to the Deaf and Dumb Asylum, where a considerable time was spent in witnessing an exhibition of the interesting in mate*, and perhaps nothing occurred during the whole day tnat engaged so completely the observa. tion of the party, from first to last, as the exercises of the deal and dumb pupils. After dwelling on this excellent establishment until the flight of tune warned them ol the delay, they next proceeded to view the magnificent Croton water works. The two reservoirs.the aque duct, the high bridge above McComb's Dam, suc cessively underwent inspection Thence, our tra vellers proceeded to the residence of ?? Morns, Esq., brother of ex-Mayor Morris, where a sumptu ous collation was all ready laid out for them. As much time as could be afforded was pleasantly pass ed in the fortification of their mortal parts for their further peregrinations,which were resumed with re gret by some, and yet with promptitude by all, as the weather gave symptoms of a sudden change, and very accurate symptoms they proved, for before the party were well in their seats on their way to the worthy Nolan's, at Harlem, the rain poured down with rapidity. A short time brought them to this comfortable place at about three o'clock. Dinner was ordered for5 o'clock. The interval|was passed as pleasantly us could be expected at a vil lage hotel of a rainy day. Mr. Nolan was indefati gable in his movements, and the result was a dinner in due season that did his house credit. Plates were laid for near one hundred ; the number who sat down, as near as we could count, amount ed to batween seventy and eighty. We would fain convey a correct impression of the dining saloon, which is capacious enough to accommodate two hundred, ana which commands a lovely prospect of the Harlem river, and its diversified banks. Of j these we would gladly convey an adequate notion? of the table, its cnina, rich glass and snow white linen?of the confectionary in massive pyramids. fairv castles, Chinese towers, and a dozen tasteful forms besides?of the sideboards, groaning with pastry and delicious fruits, and what more it would puzzle us to remember. It is needless to talk about the wines, which, were evidently provided by a man who knew how to cater for connossieurs; wine may be talked over?we have little to say about it. more than the last melody that struck the ears of the writer, as the train came up, was the popping ot cnampaigne corks, and sundry benevolent and good natured greetings addressed across the table by hap py aldermen and contented counsellors to their , cliums "on the other side." | It was proposed to go to BlackweM s Island after dining at Mr. Nolan's, but the heavy rain interfered with that project, so the only movement feasible, in the opinion of the military portion of the company, including the Secretary at War, being a retrogade one, the carriages were ordered out, the train set in motion, and a safe retreat effected, by the third avenue into the city, where we leave them to a Hap py repose after a day of activity, not forgetting to congratulate Mr. Nolan on the entire success of fits efforts to render his guests as happy and pleased as they could possibly be. literature, &c.

This excitable population, which was lately al most in a state of panic lest a small minority should defeat their darling prospect of annexation,have now settled into quietude. The President's Proclama

tions,calling an extra session of Congress and a Con vention, seem to give general, though not universal satisfaction. It is not universal, because here, as in every country, there is a faction that is never com fortable except when in hot water; and they are ex tremely vexed that the President has done all that they called for?or rather that he has provided for doing in an orderly and lawful manner, what they would have preferred doing by revolution. The party opposed to annexation, though compa ratively small, is, so far as I have known them, re spectable, and composed almost wholly of persons friendly to order and conservative principles. They seem disposed to submit decently to the will of the majority, but without any retraction of the opinions they have heretofore held forth ; and if they are to be, as their opponents predict, politically damned for their consistency, I can only say that 1 have known, both in this and other countries, greater offences to be more lightlv punished, and that in these times it 1S ?t?u' easy f? danin a man for anything. The people are beginning to think seriously of the kind of State Constitution they are to adopt, and of the men who will be best able to frame it. Some in structions from the constituents to their delegates are spoken, and among others that I have heard mentioned, is one to prohibit banking in every shape in the .state of Texas. Were I assured that this feeling is general among the people, I would ask no better proof that their rationality has not been dis turbed l)v excitement. The liberation of lexas, nine years ago, cave for a tune a fearful impetus to that kind of enterprise which seeks to make something out of nothing, and to render the soil available for everything save cul tivation. This class of enterprise, which had lone since weaned and starved itself out, bids fair to revive with the prospect of annexation. Among other schemes, born of this spirit, which f? l*eP mto existence, is the project of a .joint -stock land comjiany, to be located at Galveston. bMwhS0nSi: whoye names have heretofore not in l hil i unknown to speculation, are announced man jUj'- some as trustees, wfio are to hold, " dl8po^ oi the stock, and others as grant era, who contribute lands to the capital of the enroll'^m 7 a" l'anltl holders are invited to uuhliihiJi . m xthe latter d*ss.

Nvimrcii in thk Public Streets.?Again have we to call the attention of the inipectors of atreeU to the nuisances which are Mocking up Nome of the public thoroughfare* in thii city, and day after day bring fresh nuiiancc. We must now refer to that part of the ?'ourth ward, viz : Madison street, between Rosevelt and James streets, which is rendered almost impassable, in conse quence of a large quantity of bricks, sand and mortar, which are laid over at least three fourths of the street. The avenue itselfia not over twenty-seven feet wide,and of that twenty-two feet at least is impassable, and enough to endanger the lives of persons who are obliged to drive through this locality. If the inspectors neglcct their pub lic duty in this (sort of way, wc shall booh have all the thoroughfares in the city in pret?y much the same condi tion. Again, in the Second ward, between Kulton and John streets in Nassau street, similar nuisances are quite apparent; here we have the side walks so blockaded with commodities of all kinds from tavern*, eating-houses and so forth, that the public may feel grateful it eighteen inches of the side walk is allotted to them. When building* of any kind lire going on, one third of the street is allowed by the Corporation for the location ot building materials; but the old proverb generally speaks truth, when people get an inch they are sure to take an ell. Trinit v Chi'r< x.?The cap-stone was placed on the spire of this chuich on Friday, and we hear that the cross will be added to it early in this week.

It was rather smutting to see the anxiety which many grave and reverend seigneurs evinccd to stand on the cap-itone previous to its elevation, ia ordor to enable them to say with truth that they had stood on the top of the cap-stono o( Trinitv Church steeple. One of them was not satisfied until ne had got the workmen to place the cross on the stone ; he then got on and stood holding on to it; and he thus will be enabled in his tale* in after years to exceed those of his compeer*, who merely stood on the (tone, though probably in relating the cir cumstance they will forget to mention the stone was on the ground when they performed this feat.

Pie r man t. [CorrMprofence of the HmU] Piermont, June 27, 1845 The New York and Erie Railroad?Retrograda tion of Piermont? Uu Caute?The "Piermont Oliqut." Being on a visit to this village to rusticate for a few days, I have thought a few hnes might be ac ceptable to your readers?more especially those who are anxiously looking for some movement in favor of the New York and Erie Railroad. This village, instead of advancing, as might have been expected on the termination of the great Erie road in its centre, has, on the contrary, retrograded to a remarkable degree. Six years since, "Tappan Slote," now "Piermont," was a thriving village, with a population industrious, intelligent, happy,and rapidly increasing in numbers and prosperity. There was a regular daily communication with New York, lhe village being the general "landing place" for the market produce of u large section oi the surround ing country. Church worship was sacred; the dis trict school well attended?stores flourishing?me chanics and laborers busy?and a constant and hap py intercourse enjoyed with the neighboring fanners. Now, how changed the scene. A decreasing popu lation?idle mechanics?ignorant children?Hnd tin* church, to a sad degree, forsaken. The only ad dition to the village that, after an absence of some Eears, strikes my view, is the hundred wretched ovels ot the hall starved Irish laborers?the com pany's wood-sheds, and some strange looking, half finished brick buildings, the use of which nobody knows, and apparendy nobody cares. These build ings, by the way, are curious, and will amply repay u careful examination on the i>art of any who may be enquiring as to the proper means to restore pub lic confidence in the Erie road. I look uponlhem as a standing monument of the folly, mismanage ment and fraud with which the railroad affairs have been conducted in the vicinity of this village. Upon enquiring as to the cause oi the prostrate state ol the village, the villagers have invariably, und with out exception, pointed tu the management ol the railroad affairs as the only source from which the enquiry could be answered. 1 have, therefore, given some attention to the matter, and deeming if impor tant, will lay the facts before your readers. Certain men, soon after the company began to draw on the State Loan, became interested in the eastern division. They had in their employ con tractors, sub-contractors, engineers, sub-engineers, and became known as the Piermont clique. Large sums of money were now expended on the di\ i.-io.o, and apparently to very little purpose, at least so far as the road building was concerned; charge: ot mismanagement were therefore brought before t.'iei company?these charges, he it understood, related to the "Long Pier," and the first sixteen section:' wi the eastern division 1 The President finding it impossi ble to dispel the charges, called upon the Stale to in vestigate the affairs of the Company. We will here state, and it is our candid opinion, that the Presi dent (E. Lord, Esq.) was wholly free freni any con nection with the men who have brought the Com pany's credit to its present prostrate condition. We believe Mr. Lord was duped, sadly duped, bv the Piermont clique ; and as their victim, has probably suffered more than any other individual connected with the road. The result of the "whig investigation," '39, '40, in known to the public. By it we learn that the opera tions of the Company, west of Goshen, had been ably conducted; but from it we do not learn one word in relation to Piermont and its vicinity, which throughout the report are scarcely alluded to. Here is the mystery. and here is the result of the secrct operations of the Piermont clique. Again there wan the " democratic investigation," '40, '11, with a si milar result: namely, the Erie Road Company was quite respectable ; Piermont and its vicinity not being taken into the account. Since then we have had various investigations, during which every man and every mile on the road have been examined? always excepting Piermont and the twenty miles to Ramapo, with the Piermont clique, who squandered two million of dollars of the people's money. The operations of the Piermont clique have been systematic, and well devised to accomplish their designs. When charges were made likely to expose them, they immediately linked the charge with the name of the President or some other faithful officer, and thereby defeated all attempts of the company to reach the true source of evil. Through this and similar means they have contrived to discharge, sus pend, or in some way remove every competent en gineer, faithful officer, and honest man that has been appointed to the eastern division. They have du ring the course of eight years, and under all the va rious changes througYi which this division has pas sed, held unlimited and uncontrolled sway. During the construction they had their "Division Engineers when in ojieration, their "Superintendent:" under the assignment, their "Chief Assignee again in operation, their "Superiatending-comnnssion-engi neer." And all these offices have been, and are yet held by one and the same individual?and all this too, in spite of "Old Board," or "New Board !" Here then is the cause of the prostrate condition of the companv's affairs; and whnt the public now demand is a full, unequivocal, and accurate report from Piermont and the twenty miles to Ramapo. No man can be employed on this division, from the chief engineer to the brakeman, unless he is re lated, or wul become related to the chief of the cliaue. But a week ago, a poor Irish laborer, a brakeman on the train, was discharged to make room lor a "young gentleman" who is to act as brakeman until the "bill passes," and something better is provided. It is proceedings like these, that hav? driven good mechanics and good men from this village?including, as I am credibly informed, the village pastor. The arrogance of these men is no longer to be endured, and if the Board of Directors do not rectify the affairs of the eastern division, I fully believe the villagers will. 1 close this sheet hoping you will *eep this matter before the public, fully ix-rsnaded that the Erie Rail road canuot progress while these men control its atl'airp. Strike at the Piermont clique and the road will speed on. Canada Potatoes.?We notice by the last Cleve land, Ohio [tapers, that several cargoes of potatoes have been discharged at that port from Canada. The coat in Canada is 10 cent* per bushel, duty 90 per cent ad valorem, and sell at Cleveland for 87} cents per bush el. The papers say the trade will be a short lived one, as the Ohio crop will soon be in, and it is very abundant. Amusements. Palmo's^Ethiopean Opera Company take a benefit to-morrow evening.
