f NEW YORK HERALD. New York, Tatidajr, July (, IM3. Mr. Secretary Bancroft's Oration. \V e give to-day the oration delivered by Mr. Ban croft before the thousands who assembled in Wash ington to pay tribute to the memory of Jackson. It trenches largely on our space, but it worthily occu pies thp room which we cheerfully hfiord it in oui record of the timp, and will be reud with deep and abiding interest by thousands and thousands into whose hands this journal finds it way. As a mere literary production, this oration does credit to its talented and distinguished author. In it9 natural, forcible and unaffected eloquence,? in its chaste und classie Btyle, ? and in its high eleva tion above the usual common-place efforts of the set oratory of the day, it presents a model worthy of all imitation. Put it has far higher merits than these. Throughout, it breathes a spirit of lofty pa triotism. It is a noble and fittingv indication of those great principles of civil and religious liberty, which planted amid storm and tempest, in the wilderness J of this western world, by men of such heroic and devoted soul as animated Andrew Jackson, have i forced themse ves to a resistless superiority, before i which, the mightiest despotisms of earth have been ' made to tremble. The cureer of the departed hero ' and statesman is sketched with great power and fi delity ; and we think that that man must have a heart utterly deadened, and a mind sadly corrupietl by partizanship, who refuses the assent, both of his feelings and his reason, to the calm, sober, and dis passionate judgment, which the eloquent orator pro nounces upon the claims of Jackson, to the lasting and grateful remembrance of all true friends of li berty and the republic. The Union mentions a rather singular fact con nected with the preparation of the oration. It states that Mr. Bancroft never put pen to paj>er till Mon day, that he was out visiting on three evenings of the wedc,? was a witness on Capt. Voorhees trial on Thursday ? and had daily to attend to all the de tails and duties of two of the Executive Departments ? the Navy und War. This certainly presents us with a remarkable instance of facility in literary composi tion, which is, however, we believe, characteristic of Mr. Bancroft. At all events, the effort, to use a hackneyed, but expressive phrase, does honor alike to his head and his heart. Mr. Polk and liU Accuaers?The Succession. The Washington Union of Saturday last comes out with a rather amusing article under the quaint I caption, "Beware of the green-eyed monster, "com plaining of the murmurs in different sections of the democratic party, relative to the course of the ad- j ministration. It speaks quite pathetically of the ac cusations of the Calhoun men that Mr. Polk favors the Van Buren section, and the charges of the latter that everything is done to please the Calhoun men. j The organ denies that Mr. Polk has any obj?ct but the union and success of the party, but it does not j seem to understand the secret of the discontent which it is so desirous to subdue, bringing to its aid in that benevolent undertaking a correspondent, "than whom none better understands the views of the administration or the interests of the republican Party,," and who contributes "an admirable commu nication ' of a column long, as pointless as it is elaborate and windy. All these mutterings of dis content, unkind insinuations and bitter accusations, only indicate the activity and keenness with which the movements and intrigues for the "succession'' are progressing. Mr. Polk commenced his administration with an announcement of his intended course. He avowed that he would not favor any of the great cliques o{ the party, but take a perfectly independent position ? The first thing he did in accordance with this decla ration, was to set aside Mr. Calhoun ami Silas Wright, with ail their immediate adherents in the organization of his administration. Singu larly enough both sections of the democratic party were thus very much disappointed, and at tributed opposite motives to this cause of action on the part of Mr. Polk. The Calhoun men began to mutter their discontents as well as the Van Buren men. The next thing Mr. Polk did was to remove .'he old kitchen cabinet, and annihilate the Globe. These events without producing any serious dis satisfaction in the democratic party, have excited a ?ej-y singular sympathy amongst the whigs. The Courier and Enquirer re-echoes with most amusing complaints of John C. Rives about the rnplfl im'i mtj^L^^iiiil thus we have the extra ordinary spectacl^^^^ leading whig journal,' so savage against the Globe in the days of its existence, shedding crocodile tears over its fall, and standing up as its sympathetic and mourning friend. But the whigs are not alone in their attacks on Mr. Polk'* administration. The locofocos are quite dissatis fied. Neither of the cliques are contented. We have already noticed the dissatisfaction of the Southern cliques and recently a great deal has been said against Mr. Polk, for his selection of Louis McLane as Minister to London, particularly by the Northern branch of the^democracy. All these things show distinctly, that the troubles of Mr. Polk are just beginning to develope them f selves. Not only do the wings make at tacks upon him and his administration, which is natural enough, but his own party, and both branches of it, are amongst his assailants. The hostility of the whigs is only reasonable, and to be expected. It is their vocation to make objections to whatever is done. But there is a special motive in the hostility indicated in various quarters by va rious cliques of the democratic party. The motives of their assaults are to be found in the struggle for the succession. The Southern democracy want, if possible, to shape the administration in such a way as to give thern (he vantage ground two or three years hence, and the Northern democracy have the same desire and object. Hence their collision of sentiment and feeling. Hence opposing views of administrative policy. Hence the discontent which they express relative to every important act of Mr Polk. Even the particular friends of Jackson, to whom Mr. Polk is under so many obligations, are now summoned into the field to give their evidence against him, and particularly Major Lewis, the bo som and confidential friend of the old hero. All these different things only show the difficulty which Mr. Polk has to encounter during the remainder of his term of office, and the doubt which environs his popularity and power hereafter in conducting the affairs of the co jn'ry. It may, indeed, be said to b< almost an even bet whether he will go out covered with popularity, or as small as Mr. Tyler. We shall note it correctly, however, and report progress r.c_ cordingly. Catholic Bishop of New Orleans.? The refusal of the Catholic Bishopof New Orleans to allow prayers to be made on the d?ith of General Jackson, is cer tainly not a little remarkable, when we see another Bishop of the same Church, at Baltimore, taking hold of a murderer, and following him up to the very moment of his execution, preaching and praying, aud making the sign of the cross, and giving him n pass to the kingdom of heaven. Just contrast the two cases. Jackson, a warrior, it is true, but a great patriot, who had done his country and his a?f. the greatest service, is refused the usual religious ceremonies, and in Baltimore a common murdere. is made the subject of all the power, and force and pH-ty, and ceramonies of the Catholic Church. ' Th Catholics ol this country, and the Catholic religion stand very well, but unless the clergy, who haVe the management of their ecclesiastical affairs, conform lo the opinions of the age, and an enlightened sys lem of humanity and rel.gion, they will only ?ubjeci themselves to the ridicule and contempt of ?I1 Intel ligenl and sensible men. Such glaringly contradic tory conduct as that just noticed, can never pass be fore an intelligent people without the deepest repro bation. Vtw. FROM Evhop*.? The Hiberma will be due kuU-mo fo-morrow. She left Livetpool on the 101 > IRCULATIO.V OF THE ClTV NEWSPAPERS ? Wf avt, in common with tlie newspaper proprietors in this city, received from the Poetmaater of this city '"plicate blank affidavits, in which the number of our circulation is to be stated, in order to enable the ostmaster to decide, in pursuance of the recent luvv 0 ongress, in which of the city papers the adver ti>' ments of the Post Office should be published. e me .in to till up the blanks, and to stale precisely our circulation in the locality indicated, ulthough 1 iat alone would com preheud but a small portion of 'lie vast and extended circulation of the Htratd establishment; yet we will show, we believe, by these documents, when tilled up. that the circulation of the daily alone, is more than that of all the Wall street journals put to gether. If the other city papers till up the returns in the same manner, on oath, the public will then fully ascertain the precise circulation of the city press? an important and extraordinary species of informa tion, which will be proj>er!y relished and understood aft "1Cn ',us'ne8s> advertisers and others here W e think that these documents when they come forth, will show that for years past the advertisers and dealers in New York have been most strangely deceived and humbugged in the manner in which they have been induced to extend their patronage to the city newspapers. In some instances it will be found that newspapers, with a limited circulation enjoy an advertising patronage far beyond some other journals of three or four times their circulation. Now, it is not possible that merchants, dealers and all others in business will consent, hereafter, to throw away their money in advertising in a journal of three or four thousand circulation, when the same expenditure would obtain for them the publicity of one of four, five or six times that circulation. We are, therefore, very glad that this law passed Con- I gress for the purpose of bringing forth the exact amount of circulation enjoyed by the journals of the day. New Postage Law. ? We would call the atten- I tion of our merchants and business men, who have transmitted their correspondence through private expresses, instead of Uncle Sam, to the fines and penalties imposed under the new law that takes ef fect on and after to-day. It will be seen by refe rence to the new law, that not only persons carrying letters are liable, but "the person who transmits by private express, or any other means prohibited by I the act of 3d March, 1845, any letteror letters, pack ets or packages, or other mailable matter, excepting I newspapers, pamphlets, magazines, or periodicals; or who shall place, or cause to be debited at any appointed place, for the purpose of being transmitted by such unlawful means, any matter or thing proper ly transniittable by mail, excepting as aforesaid, or who shall deliver them for transmission to the agent or agents of such unlawful expresses, shall forfeit and pay for each offence Fifty Dollars." j One of the advantages in transmitting correspon dence through private expresses, was the small com pensation charged compared with the mail, and that letters were delivered immediately after reaching their place of destination. This will, in a grea* measure, be supplied under the new arrangement, for it is ascertained that an ordinary sheet of letter paper with ten enclosures of bank notes of usual size, can be transmitted any distance not exceeding 300 miles, for the trifling sum of five cents? less than charged by private expresses. Mail agents will be on board the steamboat one hour previous to starling, where all letters and papers can be prepaid. I Bubble Banks and Currency ? We have re- I ceived a number of letters and several newspapers, some of the latter from Pennsylvania, and the for! nier particularly enquiring what is the reason that we have said very little of late about the Plainfield Bank, the Lehigh County Bank and the financial orations of Moses Y. Beach. We shall take the trouble of giving an answer to this once for all What is the use of saying any thing farther about these bunks or any banking system, or any financiers in the present state of public opinion in the country ? I It men will take any description of paper that looks like bank notes, the best way is to let them have I their belly full, and let the morbid appetite correct I itself by future contingencies. If Beach, with two or three of his banks, can stuff the country full of J' his bills, Jwe will never put a straw in his way, but be very elad to see people sturied as full as possible- I ; The Lehigh County Bank is beginning to monopolize ' the operations of all his other banks, and vastquan- I : tities of its currency are circulating over the country ? We don't care how much of it he gets out? the more I the better; to warn the public against any particular ! currency has little effect. People generally take that which is most notorious and talked about. The great financier, Beach, therefore, has a roving com mission from us, to bring forth as many banks as he pleases ? issue as much of his currency as he can I and do as much business in Ohio and other western States, and all over the country, as any man can wish to do. Police Appointments ? The Mayor was en gaged during yesterday in scrutinizing the no minations for Policemen from the several wards, but the exact number of those approved by him is not yet known, as no entries of appointments yes terday ap|>eared on the register, which must be kept in the Mayor's office, according to article 3, sec tion 7 of the new police act, as follows: ? " There shall be kept in the Mayor's office a book in which shall be entered the name of the Chief oi Police, of each Captain, assistant Captain, and po liceman of each ward ; the time of his appointment ; the period for which he is appointed, and the tune his otlice will expire ; the time of any removal from office, or the recurring of any vacancy." In all the wards, except the third and twelfth, the appointments of Captains and assistant Captains have been made, and about seven policemen in each. In the two wards named, the nominators, consistmgef the Aldermen, Assistant Aldermen and Assessors, are at variance as to the nominees, and are likely to remain so, as each party declares itself resolutely bent on chosing its favorites. The Mayor's office was crowded by applicants for licenses of different kinds, candidates for office, and a host of speculative looking individuals who appeared to be watching f or the movement of the waters, tojurnp in. K eduction of Postage ? Our citizens ought to know to what places 300 miles reach from hence, so as to decide what their letters are to be rated. Will the Post Master or his Chief Clerk let the public have this information at the earliest moment! Draw a circle which shall reach from this city 300 miles in all directions, and give us the extreme points to which five cents postage is to be charged. Visit of Ex-Governor Dorr to this City. His Excellency Tom Dorr intends visiting this city on the Fourth of July. He will be quite a respects ble sort of lion, and ir, we believe, the principal no velty announced for the national holyday, though we have not yat heard what extra attractions they will have at the Museums. More New Packets.? It is stated that the Lon don lines of packets arc to sail weekly between this port and London. Four new ships are to be added to the lines immediately. They are to leave their respective ports on the 1st, 8th, Kith and 24 th of each month. Diseases of the Eve.? An interesting pamphle has just been published on this subject, by I)r Wheeler, the oculist, of this city. Copies can be obtained gratuitously at his residence, ??) Greenwich street. New Steamer on the Sound.? To-day the new and su[ierior steamboat Traveller, belonging toC ^ underbill, will commence her trips to Norwich.? ?she is said to be a very fast boat. ?JJ- Tlie Hon the Secretary of War, accompanied by his son, Mr. Marey, U. 8. N? left the Ameri can Hotel yesterday afternoon for Washington. Prince Joseph Napoleon Ruonipar.r and hj? ..gent, Monsieur Adolph MaillarJ, o| Bordentowu were among the arrival, yesterday the City Hotel. Theatrical** French Opera ? At last we shall have the greai mu.-cal chff d'rrttvre performed entirely in New York. The French company announce lor Wed nesd ly Robert Lk Diable, that incomparabh won-'er, which has been so celebrated on the other side of the Atlantic. The music of Meyer Iwer is so well known amongst all the amateurs of art; the ballad tongs of the play are so popu lar that we are certain the Park will be crowd ed by all the admirers of the best music known in the world. The gantries are newly painted b> the celebrated painter, Mr. Develle ; the costumes splendid and rich ; and, in the way to add more at traction to the play, the manager has mad? an en gagement with Miss Tumbull. who will pluy the part of llelupa, the Superior of the dead nuns. M'mes Stephen Cmuriot, Cassini, Arnaud, Dourry, Garry, and Cumriot, will be the interpreters of Robert Le Diable. The house will be crowded. Castle Garden ? The Klseler Brothers com mence another engagement here to-night, and give the humorous ballet of Vol au Veut. Masters F. and W. Wood and Miss Cohen also perform, with Mr. Dennison's singing, and several overtures make up a capital night's entertainments. Great prepara tion? are making here for the 4th of July celebra tion. Nibi.o's Garden. ? To-night the "Acrobat Family" appear for the second time in pantomime. Those who have already been delighted by their superior agility in their gymnastic feats, will not be the less delighted by witnessing their excellent acting in bal let. Mr. Roberts performs his popular character in the "Trumpeter's Daughter." During the evening he gives his popular Polka. Misses Taylor and Matthews, Messrs. Chippindale and Sefton, play in " Le Chtpeau du General a very agreeable and plea sing, vaudeville. The Acrobat Family are to act on the 4th of July in the open Garden. Palmo's. ? The Burlesque Company had a most numerous audience l ist night, and it appears that every evening they increase in attraction. Their songs are most admirably executed, and the dresses and properties are in keeping with the whole affair. Bowery Theatre. ? Mr. Champlin has taken this place of amusement and completely relitted it. He intends, we understand, to open to-morrow evening with a rich bill of performance. Dinneford's Benefit is to come oil' at the Chat ham to-morrow night, Duverna and De Bar having in a handsome manner tendered him the house lor the occasion. John R. Scott, the people's favorite, has volunteered. We are glad ol this. Dinneford has met with many misfortunes of late. Give him a bumper. Sporting Intelligent'? ? Great Sport over the Beacon Course, Hobo ken. ? Some good matches of pedestrianism were promised to commence yesterday, over the above course, but owing to the sudden change of the wea ther, it was found necessary to postpone them until this day, when, if the weather is at all favorable, the sport will commence, and no doubt thousands will be present to witness them. They are to commence at half past three o'clock. The first is for a "purse of $300 for a race of one mile, $50 to the 2d in the race. For this race the following entries have been made:? 1 Major Honry Stannard, 7 Scot itam or I. ?J Ambrose Jackson, bert V. ms. whohis 3 William Barlow, arrive a Scotland 4 IlicharU Hall, forth o. 5 John Smith, 8 Edwai nne, 6 Ignace Katanachiato, tho !i Wm. I Iroquois Indian fro na Ca- 10 Wm. li k, nada. 11 O.Bergen. The following was the betting at a lute hour last evening:? 4 to 3 against Major H. Stannard, taken. 4 " 3 " William Barlow, taken. A 11 3 " Iroquois Indian, taken. 8 " 3 " Ambrose Jackson. g " 3 " llobort Williams (Scotch Bantam) taken. 3 " 1 " any other. Stannard and the Iroquois Indian are backed to some extent against any other two ; Stannard, Jackson and Barlow are taken against the lield. The principal betting is on time. 4 to 3 is freely laid that it is done under 4m. 47s.; 7 to 5 tint it is done under 4m 48s. ; 5 to 6 that it is done in 4m 4tfs.; even that it is done in 4in. 45s. The long looked for John Smith may be found to give some account ol himself at the close ; he was backed to some extent last evening at 4 to 6. He is no stranger in these diggings. Same day? At 4 o'clock a purse of $200 for the greatest distance walked in one hour. For this iiurse the following entries have been made": ? I James Wood, of Charles- 10 North Star, of Canada, ton, S. C. 1 1 Charles Kreeman, ! Charles Wright, 12 Chailes Kirk, I George Rice, 13 John Navili, I G Bingen, 14 John Janson, > John S. Vandina, 15 George Whitehead, i J. Taylor, 18 Wm. Vermilyea, r E. Chenny, 17 Wm. 9. Sherwood, i John Thompson, 18 J. Boston. ) R. Hall, Little is doing on the different individuals enter ed, the only two named are James Wood of Char leston, S. C., and the North Star of Canada. The latter is hacked freely against any other ; and 7 to 4 is taken against Wood. The most ol the belting rm this match is on time. It is even that miles will not be done in the hour, 2 to 1 against HJ miles. During yesterday a number of Wood's friends ar rived in this city from Philadelphia and oilier parts, who backed him pretty considerably at 4 to 6; in each of the races the competitors may be known by their respective numbers. Every preparation has been made for the occa sion. New stands erected, the old ones strength ened ; a new fence made, on the outside of which a | deep trench is dug, so as far as possible to prevent the breaking in of the mob, and the intrusion of im- 1 proper characters. For the races during the week upwards of $2,100 are given ; which, together with other incidental ex|>enses, will cost the proprietor upwards of #3,000 This is certainly a great sum [ considering the lo>v charge made for admission, it being 25 cents, 50 cents, 75 cents, and $1. There fore there can be no excuse for parties endangering their lives and limbs, besides defrauding the proprie tor by breaking in and destroying the fences, Arc. There will be a goed posse of able men in readiness to keep order, tec., and it will be the worst for the j first that attempts in any way to mar the arrange ments and spoil the sport. Interesting Trotting Matches.? On the loth there will be a great contest between two crack trot ting horses, Jas. K. Polk and John C. Calhoun, for $1000; three mile heats, in harness. Again on the 22d the same horses will come together for the same sum in like manner. Trotting at the Centreviu.e Track _ lo- Mor row.? A very interesting match comes off as above, m which some good sport is antici|>ated, from the well known ability of the animals entered. Booths about tiie Park. ? Hie Board of Assis tant Aldermen, last night, adopted a resolution, granting the privilege to any |>ersons who may wish to claim it, of erecting Booths around the Park on the 4th of July, and selling refreshments, with the exception of spirituous liquors. The glorious 4th will be ushered in with all its ancient and custoniar> appendages. The smartly dressed jind bright eyed country lasses, with their gallant beaux, will have an opportunity of purchasing refreshment more grateful than that which the late Mayor provided. |^fhosc tin cups and fifteen cart louds of ice, ar< banished to Hades, never more to rise and excitf the merriment of the wits and practical jokers. South American News.? Adviccs from Buenof Ayres to April 30, Montevideo to April 28, and Rio de Janeiro to May 19, have been received. It was rumored that tho Buenos Ayrcan Government was about to open the ports above Buenos Ayres. Tho British steamers Finland, from Montevideo, and Gorgon, 'rom Rio Janeiro, with the British Minister, Mi Owsley, arrive*, at Buenos Ayrei April 30. It was stated by some of tho officers of the British men of-war in the outer roads, that they had received oidcit to lighten their vessels, so that they might be ablo t>. enter the inner harbor ; but the purpose of these preps ration* could only be conjectured. ..... , Mr Owsley, with two steam frigates, and the French Minister left Montevideo on the '2Mh in a frigate.

We are indebted tc Livingston \ Co. for the annexed letter from Mon treal.

There has not been much business done (he last week in dry goods, and the spring hade is evidently diawing to a close. Up to yesterday the flour market was inactive, in consequence of the high rates demanded by holders since the arrival of the Knglish mail ; yesterday, however, several sales of " Ca I audit fine" were effected from 34a 6d to 34? yd. VVIieati still in demand. Ashes have lisen, and extensive trans ecUoas have taken place at 33s a 331s for pots, and 34s l^d a 34 s 3d for pearls. Freights to the Mersey and the Clyde have risen to 4s for flour ; engagements have, how ever, been made at 3s 9d. Considerable quantities of flour are daily coining down. The late fire at Quebec has been attended by one bene ficial result, in having done much to dissipate tlie preju dice which existed d$ainst the introduction of English and American capital in the extension to this country of branches of fire and life insurance companies. This pre judice arose from a desire to retain in Canada the profits arising from such business. Now, however, that one mutual insuranre company has been annihilated, while the branches of the English and American office have promptly met all claims upon them, the feeling has alto gether changed. Ti e first steamer of the new opposition line between Quebec and Montreal has commenced plying at reduced fares. A lecture on slavery was delivered to a large audience on Tuesday evening last, at the American I'res byteriaii Church, by the Hon Gerritt Smith. An iron vessel culled Q.E L>., fitted for either stenming or sailing, arrived here this morning from Newcastle, England. Great numbers of visitors from the United States are ar riving daily. A new lino has been started this week between Montreal and Bytown, by which passen gers can travel the whole distance through the beautiful scenery of the Ottawa by daylight. Sale of Italian Grape Vines. ? A few days ago we informed our readers that Mr. Lester, our Con sul at Genoa, had imported a quantity of valuable grape vines from Savoy and Piedmont. They will Be sold at 15 Broad street, by Win Franklin & Son, this morning at 11 o'clock, and we have sadly mis taken the taste of our citizens, if they do not appre ciate tins praiseworthy effort of our Consul at Ge noa. We do not know ot a single Consul abroad besides Mr. Lester, who has ever devoted so much attention to the real interests of agriculture, com merce and literature. We were afraid, when we first heard of this enterprising movement, that Mr. Lester would meet with a sacrifice in attempting to introduee from a distant part of the world a vine which no one has hitherto tried to import. But such seems to be the deep interest generally awakened among our citizens in regard to this sab, we believe that every vine will be sold for a fair price. We are informed that a large number of horticulturists and gardeners have come from Bos ton, Albany, Philadelphia, and even from Baltimore, to attend the sale. We hope that our New Yorkers will be on the look out, and not let speculators from those cities get them all into their hands. We want these vines Here among us. Why should we not eat good grapes and drink good wine as well as Bostoniansl Riots in Canada. ? We regret to say that outrages still occur occasionally in Griffintown. One of our most quiet and respectable citizens was attacked near Brenuan's corner on Tuesday night, by two ruffians ap parently Canailers, and knocked down several times. ? After receiving great injury from blows and kicks, the gentleman succeeded in escaping into Biennan's store, where Mr. B. protected him, and afterwards escortodhim home. ? Montreal Herald, June 37. .u x . c,ty ^OUIgence. About eleven o'clock yesterday, as Mr. Lawrence V Now kirk, of No. Ill Suffolk street, in this city, was ri ding in Ins wagon through Greenwich street, ne sudden ly was observed to fall backwrrds in the vehicle when a gentleman who was passing tu the moment, ran to his as sistance, but found that the vital spark had lied : he was nt nnce conveyed to the store No. 205, in the street. The tei ,' /! M?^r,Wag ln atten<lrince in a few minutes af

He could not learn what the cause of death was hut it is supposed disease of the heart. ' ' lt Tnr New Police Bill? Abolition or Police Fees.? A* soon as tho appointment of police officers, under the new law, is completed by the corporate authorities and the provisions of' the bill declared in full oiioration no ifflL0rrf0Tn"" tloncan be Charged or received by any r?r ? ? *""**? 0 any Priton?'?. or for mileage, or for receiving any prisoner into the prison, or discharging him from the same; and no fees or costs can be chartrer or received for the issuing ,( any warrant sub, ^na^or vit fiJpm?Mn' ?a taf g ai?y coml'laint, bail, or afflda vit, except in cases of assault and battery where the tilaTnt compelled- to pay all the fees if the com ???!- ? .u frlv"lo,us- maficious, or untrue, on exa ruination of the facts before the magistrate. A violation ol this law subjects the magistrates, clerks, officers &c. to indictment and conviction for a misdemeanor, as also does the reception of any present or reward by either of them, without the consent of the Mayor, to be given In writing. ? Under this law, the watch department it abolished, as, also, all the Mayor s Marshals attending at the civil and criminal courts, tho Street Inspectors, the Health War dens, the Kire Wardens, the Dock Masters, the Lamp pghte.*, the Bell-ringers,. the Day Police officers, the Sunday officers, Inspectors of Pawnbrokers and Junk shops, officers to attend the Polls, and Superintendant of Roads of the Twelfth ward. The cost of the police to the city, under this now po lice law, will be about *o00,000 per annum. Under the recent system it hns cost about f.300,000. The balance of $200,000 must come from the pockots of the taxpayers, and if the new law is ineffective, us some think it will be from want of force, the pa. ty bringing such a bill into operation, must be made accountable to the people at the next charter election. The Kerries of New York.? A number of the popu lation of New Vork, that do business here daily, are, strange as it may seem, residents of other counties, and in some instances of another State, who daily come to the city, remain here all day, and in the evening cross ?ir resPective places of abode? to Brooklyn Williamsburg, Jersey City, Staten Island, kc. And a large amount ol' money is expended for the conveyances to and Iro, in what may be called floating omnibuses. On the hast Itiver there are no less than six ferries commu nicating with Long Island, each of which is fullv patron ized; and to any one who has ever been in New York.we need not instance the crowds that are every minute of the day passing over Kulton ferry. On the North River there are several ferries to Jersey City and Hoboken, which are also crowded at all hours. The Staten Island boats, that run at all hours, bring a daily load ol passengers But it is in the morning and evening when the crowd of businessmen may be seen crossing and recrossing, and the throngs that pass over at those hours is incredible. A good deal of taxation is avoided by this way of living, and many a one by residing out of the city, enjoys nil its business privileges, without being called to contribute lor any of the taxes that are levied on tho residents. I he boats on these ferries are mostly of a superior kind, and a great alteration for the better has taken place in thcBi during the last few years. The old-fashioned double boats that during tho winter season were conti nually obstructed by tho floating ice, have disappeared, and new single boats with powerful engines substituted. One of the standing dreams of aspiring young architects has been the construction of abridge from Brooklyn to New York, but such an enterprise is scarcely needed, as apart from the great obstruction it would olfer to the na vigation of the liver, tho boats now do all that is requi site in the way of transporting passengers and freight quickly and with safety. A new ferry is talked of, to ply from the lower part of the city to the foot of Bridge street, in Brooklyn, and an other I rom the foot of Atlantic street, toward* White hall, on the New York side. Whether they will bo car ried into effect or no, we know not. The Weather.? Sunday and yesterday, the good peo ple of Now York were completely astonished by the .-.tidden fall of the thermometer; and white pants* and summer coats were quite at a discount. Kvery body appeared to be quite dintrait. and tho usual Sunday plea sure seekers wero nonplussed. A heavy rain commenc ed falling yesterday morning, and continued through the day; fires were quite comfortable, and wore to bo seen in many of our hotels and stores. Winter clothing was hauled out of the recesses of trunks, where it had been put, with the idea of its not being again required till fall ?in lact, the weather was more like what we might ex pect in March, than the pleasant month of Juno. The Con for at low. ? It is really necessnry that lights of some kind should be left in the streets whore repairs ire carrying on. and particularly at the corner of Cham bers street. Theie aro a quantity of large ling paving stones anil hand-barrows lying in heap* across the street, and it is almost next to impossibility to perceivo them until within a yard or so of the pile. Last night about eleven o'clock, a private cab was near being dashed to atom* by diiving into the heap. VYe aro sure it must be an oversight of the inspector, or protection of some kind would he left there as u preservative. Kire. ? About twelve o'clock last night, a fire broke out in Robinson'* book store, corner of Broadway anil Fulton street ; the particulars of which we are unable to lay belore the public, in couscuueiice of the ruffianly con duct of a " police officer" and some of " fire Company No. 42" kicking our reporter out of the door. We Bre sorry we cannot give publicity to their nunc*, as we could not leain them at the late hour. We were inform ed that the officer wa* one of the new force, and no doubt his conduct last night not only proves that he is a most efficient guardian butt gentleman, whose politeness can only be exceeded by his personal attractions ; and he may depend we shall bear in mind his great kindness la<t night, and lend him a hand whenever wo have Bn oppor tunity.

The communication was referred. Communication from the Mayor, with the resignation of tho City Chamberlain? Laid on the table. Reports ? In favor of allowing J. 8. Jones to construct a dram at his personal expense to carry water from his cellar, 159 Hammond street to Hudson River ? Accepted. Dog Law? An ordinance was read in relation to the e? tnbli- limcnt of a new code of laws for the better regula tion if tho vagrant puppies belonging to the canine tribe, who have hitherto, in violation of all law, wander ed at pleasure through our streets, committing all sorts of depredations, and wanderiug about in idleness. The ordinance ha* no reference to such of the species as are to be found in the vicinity of Broadway, puffing segars in the fiices of tho ladies, during the evening*, as they go to the theatres and othor places of public amusement, w'hich is, indeed, to be regretted. The ordinance was reported from a special committee, to whom was referred a com munication from the " New York Sporting Club," in re ference to the establishment of a law to protect and im prove the better breed of dogs, which often escape from their owners ; and, meet the fate of all vagrant animal*, and tire subjected to the "black" code, the argumentum baculinum, under the hands of the lusty nigger justices, who dispense the law in all such cases made and provi ded, during the summer months. The ordinance pro vides that there shall be established a dog-pound, in a suitable location, at the pleasure of the Mayor. All dogs found in the streets shall be taken to the pound. A pound master shall be appointed ; a register, in which shall be kept (not the names, but) the number of dogs daily and weekly impounded ; and they shall be maintained at the public expense, and can at all times be redeemed upon payment of a sum of $3, and the payment of such further sums for board, Sic., as their keep may amount'to. To be sold at auction if not redeemed. The ordinance was taken up by section*. Alderman Benion moved to let the ordinance lie on the table. It made no provision, no distinction between the little dog and the big dog, the black dog or the white dog, the yellow dog or the red dog, the spaniel dog or the cur dog. (Immense roars of laughter.) Now , I pro teat against the passage of the bill upon those grounds, as there ought to be a distinction in tho clauses of the bill. (Renewed laughter.) Aid. Messcrole? The bill was framed, sir, upon pure democratic principles, that recognize no distinction be tween dogs and puppies of all kinds. (Loud and continu ous peals ol laughter.) Aid. Benson ? 1 do not mean to contend, sir, that all dogs and puppies are aristocratic. (Laughter.) What I meant to contend for was, that some were big and some were little--some were yellow and some were black. I make the objection, with a view to provide against con tingoncies ; for, gentlomen, unless you take somo such precaution, I am inclined to the opinion that we shall lay the foundation for an increaso ol the canine population, (immoderate roars of laughter,) and thereby aggravate the evil we intend to abate. Some motions were then made to let the ordinance lay on tho table ; whick were lost. Tho ordinance was partially amended as follow* : ? A clauso was inserted authorizing the Pound-Master to re ceive $1 per day, and empower him to sell each dog im pounded for a sum of $3, in the event of tho dog's not be ing claimed by its owner ; and the Pound-Master is bound to pay over all sums that may remain on hand after de, ducting all fees, expenses, &c., to the City Treasury. The ordinance was passed until the Clerk came to the reading of the seventh clause, which empowers the Pound-Master to sell off, &c. Aid. Benson hereupon moved to take a reces*. Aid. Messebolk called for the yeas and nay*. Aid. Briogs moved to refer. Aid. Messehole considered the opposition he had re ceived as uncourteous from the Alderman (Briggs.) Aid. Briggs would not allow'hi* motives to oe ques tioned. Aid. Benton. ? Let us retire for half an hour and then we can settle the matter. Aid. Seaman ? 1 move that it be referred to the Commit tee on Laws. The motion prevailed? ayes 9, noes 6. The Board hereupon took a recess for half an hour, to the tea room. Some of the members feeling evidently much chagrin ed at the abrupt finale to the proceedings, which they doubtless considered rather do a-malic on the part of the majority members- who voted down the bill, aftor pass ing through to itslaat clause. RECESS. The Board re-assembled, and the roll was called dver. General Sandford. ? A communication was received from his Honor the Mayor, conveying an invitation from General Sandford to his Honor the Mayor and the Com mon Council, to receive a grand salute from the first di vision of military, over uOiicli the gallant Generall has the command, on the 4th of July.

The Pressdent hereupon read tho seventh sec tion, which empowered the pound-keeper to receive one dollar extra pay for all such dogs as ho shall sell or dis pose of according to the provisions of the law. Alderman Bhiuo* enquired If the ordinance, afUrbelnf referred, was correctly before the Board, by taking U| tlie seventh section. He was opinion that th? Boan were bound to commence ne noro, and take up tho ac) again !>v sections seriatim. The PaKtlMSNT considered the ordinance was correct ly belore the Board, by resuming the consideration of tin seventh section, when it whs recollected the lhape ii which the matter stood previous to the recess.

What is mysterious and remarkable about this affair, is the fact that only one of the bags were taken, the thief leaving $30,000 behind him. Two persons have been arrested on suspicion of being connected withjhe robbery, and are now undergoing an examination; nothing, however, ha* thus far appeared to implicate them. A reward of $1000 will be paid for the recovery of tho money. Steamno Lohsters? James Betts was arrested. charged with stealing one hundred and fifty pound:- of lobsters, valued at $7, from Klisha A.

Common Plena. Before Judge Ingraham. Jumk. 30. ? Brown vs. Burrows. ? This was an action of trover. The plaintiff is the large shipper at the Dry Dock; the defendant keeps a junk store. The charge is, that at various times large quantities of copper were stolen from the plaintiff's yard ; Anally somo hoys were traced to defendant's storo and ariested. The plaintiff thereforo seeks to recover from defendant the amount of all the copper so lost? which he says was four thousand pounds, about $800; and for this purpoco introduced the hoys, who tried to swear away their own infamy on the should ers of the defendant ; they swore that they stole copper and carried it to defendant's store and sold it; that they wont there about fourteen times and received (each) from $1 to $2 escli time. This was tho plaintiff's case. The defendant proved that after the boys were arrested he went to plaintiff for tho purpose of settling tho mat ter, and as he alleges paid plaintiff $100 <" full satiafac tion of the demand. Verdict for jilaimilf, $600 damages, 6 conts costs. for plaintiff, J. L. White; for defendant, J. McKcon and McCarthy. Before Judge Daly. Thomas MeKeon vs. Philip Mc Cardie, ? This was an ac tion to recover damages for assault and battery, which it ? as alleged was committed by defendant in a row that occurred on the 6th February last, in 26th street. It ap peared that plaintiff and defendant had been present on nn occasion when some third parties had been drinking: and the "jolly god" having risen in some of tho heads or the persons present, words came to blows, when tho plaintiff alleges ho was assaulted by defendant. The defence put in was. that defendant did not commit the asrault. which he alleges was committed by a party na med Smith, who drives for him as carman. Veidictfor plaintiff, 6 cents damages ami 6 cents costs. For plaintiff, J. M. Smith; for defendant, Alfred A. Phil lips. V. S. Circuit Court. Judge Nelson presiding. Jr*K 30. ? Tho tedious ami sevcrcl) contested patent suit "1 Day vs. Meyer, in which the India Rubber Manu facturers seem to take the most lively interest, is draw ing to a close. It teems from what we have gathered I rom the testimony, that the plaintiff, Mr. Day, a well known operator in this kind of goods, about on? year since made a very valuable discovery in machinery, for making shirred or eorrugated suspenders ; and that two of his foremen also made discoveries, of neaily equal value to Mr. Day, in the prosecution ol thfs branch ol his business, both of which discoveries were purchased by Mr. Day, immediately after the granting of a patent lor the same by our govemmeat. Most of the manufactu rers have availed themselves of these inventions without license from the plaintiff, among them Mr. Christopher .vleyer, (against whom t:iis suit is brought) who conduct! an establishment in which some capitalists at New Bruns wick, N. J., have an interest. The principal witnesses on the part of the defenco, was a man by tho name of Clark and his wife; the former had heeu employed by the plaintiff to assist him in working on the machine, when being built in Day's factory. The character of tho testi mony is very conflicting. * Wei shall withhold a further evpiession of our opinion until the cause is closed, which will prubably be to-day or to-morrow. I he business in this court is confined almost exclu- i sively ol late to the testing ol patent rights, and we take pleasure in speaking of the eminent ability and correct learning of Judge Nelson, who bids fair to mak* one of the most popular Juilges who has ever beon called i? preside on this bench.
