Liverpool Cottow Market, June 6.? The trade hevc taken a fair supply of cotton during the past week, but the pacific character of the news brought by the Hlbei iiia on Saturday last, together with the hoary impending import, have induced holders to offer their stock freely, and the prices of American descriptions, more especial ly ol the common and middliag qualities, are fully |d. per lb. lower than on Friday last. Brazil, Egyptian and Surat are also rather easier of purchase; but we can make no definite change in our quotations, except for Meranhems, which huve been freely taken at a decline of ^d. per lb. The sales of the week amount to 18, 99*' bales, of which I7.">0 American have been taken on spec ulation, and 1330 American, 130 Pernams, and 260 Surat for export. The import, it will be seen, has been unusu nlly large, viz : 113,067 bales. The committee's quota tions to-day for lair cotton are as follow, rit Bowed. ?Jjd, .Mobile, 4}d; and Orleans, 4jd. per lb. Juiio 13. ? The market has been well supplied with Cotton during the past week, but the trade have bought freely, and prices of all descriptions, with the exception ot Surat, have been firmly maintained, more especially during the last day or two. Surats barely support last weeVs quotations. The sales of the week amount to 43,870 bales, of which 8000 American and 100 Egyptian have been taken on speculation, and 2 j00 Ame rican. 100 I'ernams and 600 Surat for export The Com mittee's quotations to-day for fair Cotton are as follow, viz : Bowed 4Jd, Mobile 4jd, and Orleans 4jd per lb. June 18 ? Since Friday, our market has assumed a very firm and healthy tone, and business to a large extent has been transacted. On Saturday the sales were 8000, on Monday 7000, on Tuesday 6000, aud to-day they reach 10,000 bales. The import since Friday amounts to 40,000 bales. Trices have, during the same period, been firm and steady lor all descriptions, with the exception of American under 4]d, whicn are l-16d dearer than on Friday. The market closes to-day very steadily, indeed. London Hop Mar set, June 18.? There is a great in crease of fly ; scarcely any Hops are offered, and prices are 3 a 6s higher. Bhitiiii Corn Tn*DE.? The extraordinary fine wea ther experienced throughout the week has put a total stop to the unfavorable rumors so prevalent a fortnight back, respecting the appearance of the growing wheat crop. That more or less injury was done by the ex treme severity of the winter ana the backwardness of the spring, cannot be questioned ; but, after careful in quiry, we feel satisfied that the mischief was quite par tial, aud that our prospects iu respect to the future are fully as promising at present as is usually the cas? at the corresponding period ofthe year. The plentiful rains of May have been of immense service to the plant on all light soils, and this description of land promises to yield u far better produce than it did last season j. allowing, therefore, that the wircworm and the frost may have in jured the crop to some extent in the eastern counties, the probable deficiency from this cause is likely to be more than compensated by the superior yield in other quarters; aud without going so far as to predict such onother abundant produce as that of 1844, we are fully convinced that, with auspicious weather for bringing what is now on the ground to maturity, and a favorable iu-gathering, a full average may be safely reckoned on. The only drawback is the probability of the harvest be ing somewhat late ; this may cause stocks in the grow ers hands to be reduced into lather a narrow compass before the new wheat can be made available ; but should nothing occur to create uneasiness, the supplies from the farmers will, we doubt not, hold out. The trade has, since our last, under tho influence of the fine weather, and the improved reports received Irom all quarters iu regard to the aspect of the country, become excessively dull ; hitherto, however, holders of wheat have not been able to make up their minds to ac cept lower terms, and the fall in prices has consequent ly been trifling. Purchasers have, on the other hand, manifested very little confidence in the present value of the article being maintained, and have generally confin ed their operations to as narrow u limit as their immedi ate wants have permitted. ? Mark Lane Esprcss, Jane 16. Liverpool Cork Market, June 19. ? The prospects of the growing crops are now considered very favorable; and, siiould the present fine weather continue, wili pro bably be one of the most abundant ever known. Liverpool Provision Market, June 19.? Since June 3, arrivals of American produce generally unusually light, and sales also more limited than customary. The market for Beef and Pork without animation, and hardly a transaction in either ; last quotations still maintained, and should imports the remainder ol the month not be unduly targe, dealers will be obliged to come into the market at present rates. Cheese meets a free sale, and notwithstanding tho import has been larger than we ex pected. all parcels are taken off the market on arrival at .'jOs to A3s per c wt; which is euual to former quotations, taking the inferior quality ana condition ofthe late arri vals into account. These rates must not be reckoned on, however, for future shipments, as the market for new English is opening at rates much below those ot last year, with every prospect of a low range of prices the coming season.

An ad vance of 5s a 10s per ton on forged pigs in Staffordshire, and Beveral of the largest works there have been stand ing for the last five weeks, in consequence of some dis pute between tlie workmen and their employers. The impression among the Welch makers is, that the trade has got to the turning point and that prices will improve.

Our Illustrated Weekly* The Weekly Herald will be published at 9 o'clock to-morrow morning. It will contain a full descrip tion of the celebration of to-day, with aplendid illus trations. Also, the foreign news received by the Acadia. It will be a beautiful sheet to send into the country and to Europe. The morning edition of the Daily Herald will not be issued to-morrow. The evening edition will be published at 3 o'clock, with the news to that hour. Arrival of the Acadia? Highly Important In telligence. This steamship reached Boston last Wednesday night. Her news is interesting and important. It is half a month later than before received. It appears that M. Guizot has stated officially that France will not interfere in any way with Texas in her efforts in favor of annexation to the United States. This announcement is important, as it has been believed, on this side of the Atlantic, that France had joined England to prevent annexation. But we are not disposed to regard the declarations ot M. Guizot altogether without suspicion. It may be a well conceived ruse after all ? something of the same character with Sir Robert Peel's blustering about Oregon, when the prevention of the annexa tion of Texas was really the object of the game. The commercial intelligence is interesting ? large sales of cotton ? improvement in iron? better pros pect for good crops, icc. Jec. See the extracts on the outside. " Fourth of July Oration." The Past, the Present, and the Future. ? Last night while seated in the inner chamber of our editorial sanctum, revolving in our mind the various topics which naturally suggested themselves on the eve of the national anniversary, the door was softly opened, and there noiselessly entered a per sonage of most venerable and commanding pre sence. A large blue cloak hung loosely on his shoulders, discovering underneath a military garb line that worn by the soldiers of the Revolution. ? Our visitor was much above the ordinary stature ? his hair was white as the driven snow, and des cended in thick waving-curls upon his shoulders. But this seemed the only mark which years had placed u|>on the aspect of the stranger. His eye burned with a more than youthful fire, and his lofty brow was smooth and unrutiied as that of a sleeping child. Over the whole face reigned a serene and majestic calm, to which intelligence of the highest order gave a solemn impres'siveness, that at once subdued and awed the beholder. " I am," said the stranger, " the Spirit of ' Se venty-six.' I have seen by your paper of this morn ing that I can nddress myself to tens of thousands throughout tiiis land, and as none can dispute my right to be the great spokesman of to-morrow, I come to pronounce my Fourth of July Oration !" Having listened with breathless interest to th? words of the illustrious stranger, and thus learned the object of his visit, we at once summoned our " unrivalled corps," and are thus enabled to present to our readers the following oration, precisely as it fell from his lips. ***** This is the sixty-ninth birth-day of American liberty. In the swift flight of time, the nation is again summoned to the celebration of an event fraught with the greatest interest to the destinies of mankind. And this summons will be willingly obeyed. All ? the old and the young ? the hoary veteran and the youthful patriot ? the adopted citi zen and the freeman born upon the soil? the stern Puritan of New England, and the adherent of the ancient faith of Rotnc ? will all unite in the ob servance ot this day ? a day sacred to the memory ot mighty men of wisdom and valor, to the liberties of America and to the Hod of freedom. And so all over the land, from the great cities on the margin of the ever-sounding sea, to the vast plains through which the father of rivers pours his broad, resistless flood, a glad nosanna will ascend from the hearts o' a free, happy and united people. In gatherings of the i>eople, now hushed into solemn stillness as the charter of their liberties is read, and now breaking forth into loud but not disorderly rejoicings? in pleasure parties on river or lake, or amid the cool shades of the spreading wood? in the crowded theatre and fashionable resort ? in thousands and thousands of |>eaceful family circles, where love and affection are smiled upon by the chastened beams of the setting sun? everywhere, will the spirit of "Seventv-Six" be present, rekindling the decaying, and adding fresh intensity to the ardent tires of pa triotism. On such a day the mind instinctively turns back upon the past. We at once revert to that period when the first adventurous bands of colonists had settled on our shores. Two hundred years ago, how indifferent the prospect of the future ! A feeble band of English Puritans at Plymouth ? an humble colony of Dutchmen on the Hudson ? a few Catholic settlers in Maryland ? and here and there in Virginia a little fimilvof adventurous spirits, struggling against a sivage enemy and a thousand disadvantages and privations. We follow these devoted settlers through that long night of toil and tcni[>e8t? now almost wholly overwhelmed, and with hearts sinking with in them ? now regaining strength and confidence ? but ever manifesting that heroic spirit and uncon querable will which yet live in their descendants, until at last we find them grown up into three millions of people, and preparing to throw off the despotic rule of the most j>owerful nation of modern times. In all these struggles ? in all that long agony of suffering and toil? and in that united impulse and resolve, all the different branches of our common ancestry discovered the same unquenchable love ot civil and religious liberty, the same unshrinking and practical faith in the nobility of man's nature his capacity for self-government, and his ability to i.chieve and maintain perfect indej^ndence. Again we look back, and we see our forefathers ?ist'emerging from the Seven Ybarh' War. They have triumphed over the fleets and armies oj < Ireat Britain ? the Declaration of lnde|>cndence has een proclaimed to the world? the years of colonial servitude are ended, and the second era in the na tional existence begins. And here again we see the union, but in far greater strength and power, of the same elements that effected the first settlement of the country, and achieved, to such a miraculous ex tent, the subjugation of the savage tribes and the hardly less hostile wildernesses of this western world. Men of various climes, and of every reli rrious belief, united in the effort. They had but one ?rent object in common? that was, the establish ment on the virgin soil of the new world of a sys tem of government by which e.,ual rights and privi leges would be secured as the inalienable birth right of all. And they succeeded. Fair, firm, and un shaken, as when first they placed the cope-stone with jov upon it, the fabric of the Revolution stands the glory and protection of the republic ? the wonder and admiration of all the nations. Through the be neficent and salutary influence of the institutions founded by these immortal benefactor! of their race, this republic has advanced, in the brief siwce of two generations of men, to an imperial greatness which commands the respectful attention of the whole ci vilized world. Twenty millions of jieoplc dwell ?vVth in our borders ? our flag is seen on every sea n<i oar adventurous mariners are every year finding new channels for successful enterprise. We supply the ancient world with some of the great stapleBot ommerce. New discoveries of vast mineral wealth are continually made. Our exports amount to up wards of a hundred millions of dollars ? soon 10 number tens of Imndreds of millions.? Human ingenuity and energy find in all direc tions ample employment and a full reward.? All the enjoyments of the highest state of civiliza tion are universally diffused amongst our (>eople? the humblest laborer, who, with his hands hardened and his face bronzed by the breezes and the sun of heaven, eata the bread of daily toil, living in a state of affluence and luxury, even when compared with the condition of some of those princes from whose loins the proudest nation of Europe recruits the strength of its rotten royal line. Instititfions for the education of the people, munificently endowed by the State, exist everywhere, and the rich streams of knowledge flow unimpeded in sll directions. The ministers of religion? not the mercenary hirelings of a faith "by law established," and chained to the footstool of an earthly throne, but the active and la borious missionaries of the cross, supported by the voluntary contributions of their Hocks, constitute a body of men, with exceptions rare indeed, in which the friends of morality and virtue, and the republic, may well repose their highest confidence. Freedom of the press? freedom of speech? freedom of ac tion, exist amongst us in a state of perfection, and wisely, because not too rigidly guarded for practi cal use, neveryetseen amongst any people. And the results of this well ordered state of things are seen everywhere. Peace and liberty rejoice to gether, as they walk hand in hand throughout the land, and the voice of contentment and gladness is heard within our borders. Such is the glorious present ? the vestibule of a still more glorious future. We are now just enter ing as it were on the third era of our national exis tence. First was the period of colonial struggle next the years of our adolescence, when we gathered the robust strength and vigor which now in our third epoch we are called upon to employ in the ful filment of our high destiny. Already the first step has been taken in this work of our lusty manhood. The annexation of Texas is but the starting point in the great work of subjugation and conquest to be achieved by the Anglo-Saxon race in this great di vision of the earth. The whole continent must and will one day be subdued. And thus in the old and in the new world the same superior race is subduing territories, and nations, and |>eople, and tongues, unto itself. All other races, black, red, yellow, and brown, must bow and fade before it. The most glo rious portion of the work is reserved for us and for ' our children. And that is the universal spread of 1 free government and equal laws. A spirit has taken wing from the land of freedom which is destined to carry civil and religiousjiberty to the ends of the earth. Into the minds of all ? from the President at Washington, to the humblest pioneer of civilization and freedom, whose axe resounds in the solemn fo rest ? let this great truth sink deeper and deeper ? to the people of this land have been committed the maintenance and propagation of universal liberty ? let all see to it that they are faithful to the trust. ? * * * ? Our corps looked up as the firm, melodious voice of the saeaker that had touched the heart like glo rious music ceased. He had gone. We threw open the window, and looked forth on the now de serted streets, for it was long past midnight. The great city was hushed and still as one of the solemn old woods of the mighty west, and oh ! how peace fully came down the mild effulgenee of the eternal walchers in the skies, shining as bright and unwea ried as when first the morning stars sang together, and all the new created worlds shouted uloud for joy ! Custom- House Movements? The First .Remo val. ? We have already stated the first appointment at the Custom House, which was Mr. Kiersted.? We have now to make a record of the first removal since Mr. Lawrence came into power, and that is young Mr. Bowran, son of Dr. Bowran. Dr. How ran, the father, who is still in the Custom House, was formerly a very efficient member of the committee which brought forward General Harrison for the Presidency. After the death of llurrison, Dr. Bow ran became u strong Tyler man, and a member of the famous Tyler Committee, organized by M. M. Noah, which exploded after spending some $10,000 on newspaper onerations in this citv. Dr. Bowran himself is h very worthy man imd deserves the place he has got, but we doubt very much indeed whether he can be retained long in the present position of affairs. Ilis son has been removed, it is said, in consequence of incompetency in conducting the business of his office. This is the first removal; but it is very probable that there will be a great deal of excitement and rumor before the general batch of removals take place. Mr. Lawrence has given no intimation to any of the present incumbents what he means to do. We hardly suppose that he knows himself. The contest will, probably, first be amongst the ap plicants of the Van iiuren rtiqw, as to whose names shall be sent on to Washington by the Secretary, before the next movement is made in the way of removals. The whigs and the ultra looofocos are making a great racket and noise against Captain Rynders, who enjoys some small office in the Cus tom House, and thos<; associated with him in the Empire Club. It is all very proper for the whigs to make this noise ; but it seems to be very illiberal .aid ungrateful in the Van Buren men to act in this manner. It may very well be recollected that the success of Captain Rynders and his club were of essential value in the election of Mr. Polk ? so much so were they considered, at all events, that the honor of a complementary ball was given to Captain Rynders after the election, and amongst the names of those who tendered the compli ment, the pious, and highly respectable Benja min F. Butler figured conspicuously, as well as many other distinguished Van Buren men It seems not a little strange then to see this effort made against these men, especially on the ground of imputations relative to private character and for mer occupation. We conceive that the life of a politician ? the principles of a politician ? the soul of a politician ? from the highest to the lowest, with some few exceptions, are quite on a par with the sentiments and ideas of the gambling shops of Park Row and Barclay street. The iioliticians and the gamblers of the day are chips of the same block ? of equal value and equally prepared for combustion. Another Piece of Intelligence.? A few days .igo, the Court of Errors of New York made a visit to Coney Island, and after s|iending a part of the day there and regaling themselves on clams in every form? baked, stewed, fried, roasted, boiled, broil ed, devilled, and hashed, they made sundry long speeches which, it is said, partook of the nature of the f ood theyhad been swallowing in such abundance ?being neither fish, flesh, nor fowl. It is a fact though? for our correspondent there, never yet said any thing that he would not swear to ? that they committed as many errors as that Court usually does, and made their escape before the police or grn* ri'armet got a scent of them. Wc congratulate the party on their narrow escape, for if they had not ineekly decamped, as they did, it is probable the defensive force would have seized them, and hand ed them over to the authorities, who in the present exas|ierated state of public feeling, in connection with the Dorrite invasion, would perhaps have in dicted them for treasonable participation in that not yet fully developed, but |>ortcnlious event. I>et clam eaters beware ; this excursion of the New York Solons was nearly proving the most erroneous motion ever made by or before a Court of Errors for many years |>ast. l'oit?rri]>t . ? W e have further learned that (Jov Davis, of Coney Island has given permission to Mr. Reade of the I lamilton House, to erect a wharf for , the convenience of landing visitors to the Istond, | and that in a few days a steamer will coninifnce running between this city and the Island, touching at Hort Hamilton. Moreover, (?ov. Davis has with a liberality becoming Ins high station, eiven Mr. I lead e a plot of ground spacious enough for the site of a tent, 91) feet long and broad in proportion, winch will be erected in the course 0f a few days. /Uain we say to the lovers of clams, look out for r'reat times. The Weather.? Yesterday, about 2 o'clock, this city was visited by a very heavy thunder storm, ac companied with heavy rain, Irom the west) which laated near upon an hour. During the remainder of the day we had slight ahowera of rain at interval* AFf aiii OP Honor? On Monday Inat. 'John Austin, Esq , a celebrated member of the Empire Club and an tmjtloyi in the Custom Houae, attended with u second, went on to Baltimore and probably to Bla densburgh, to settle an affair of honor he had on hand with Mr. Colton, well known in the sporting circles of this city. It seems the ati'air is a long standing one. On Sunday last, it is stated, they met on the Battery, with a view of taking advantage of the solemnity and quiet of the day, to reconcile their differences. In this attempt, Capt. Rynders, of the Empire Club, acted as a sort of peace-maker, but according i to the best account of the n?gotiation, no approach was mad<s to a reconciliation, although Sunday was selected for that purpose. Accordingly, like other .great men of honor, distinguished individuals, and persons of figure, generals in the army, members of Congies*, tec. .Major Austin and Capt. Colton (such brave men must not go without tides) Bet out on Monday or Tuesday for the south to have a friendly crack at each others immortal spirit, either in Dela ware or Bladensburg, on the line between Maryland and the District of Columbia. A great excitement has anaen all round about the Custom House, the regions of Ifclrk Row, the confines of Barclay street and twenty other plnces, as to the result of this hos tile and chivalric encounter. Bets vary according to p ersonal friendships, prepossessions and partiali ties. Some bet the odds in favor of Colton, for he is represented as a resolute man, an accurate shot, and prominent among the fashionable circles of New York. "* Major Austin, although said to be slightly nervous, is equally courageous, a skillful hand at the fire-irons, and withal a man of celebrity its having rendered valuable services during the last lection, as a prominent member of the immortal Empires. If uny intelligence of this affair, or its result, ar rives this morning by the mail, it will be found in the evening edition of the Herald to-morrow. Wealthy Men of Philadelphia. ? Such will be the title of a .forthcoming book from the press of Zieberifc Co., of Philadelphia ? than whom there are none more likely to fulfil the task with fidelity, and we wish themjproper encouragement in their rather more arduous than useful undertaking. We regard it as more difficult than useful, because we have seen an ephemera' attempt made in this city to give a sketch of a similar kind , and we know that it was at best but a tissue of ?xaggera tion, caricature and misrepresentation. How could it well be otherwise ?? It would require a person able to discover by intuition the wealth of his neighbors, to write a work of any value on the subject ? for what other means are there to come at facts \ People do not jabber about their alfairs, and more than that, who can tell their true state, who is concerned in the fluctuating business of daily life ? It is perfectly visionary to pretend to give a true account of how the wealth of this or any other city is diffused in indi vidual hands, because the facts are not ascertain able. Yet Zicber's pamphlet will deserve patronage, as it doubtless will be an able attempt at an impossibility; it will serve to indicate the i?oint these reputed men of wealth occupy in the public eye, and their com parative importance according to the popular stand ard. There will be many truths told, and many aj> proximations to truth, and hence the pamphlet will and ought to be bought. Importation of Italian Vines into the United States. ? We have already alluded to some speci mens of Italian vines introduced into the United States by Mr. Lester, formerly United States Con sul at Genoa. These vines are peculiar to the mountainous part of Northern Italy, and are singu larly adapted for the soil and climate of this latitude. We received from the politeness of Mr. Lester seve ral 8[>eciinens of the vines, and which we placed in the hands of Mr. William Ilarold, of Glen Cove, L. I., by whom they will be planted, taken care of, and introduced into that part of the country. The grapes produced by these vines are of peculiar deli cacy, and supply the tables of his Majesty the King of Sardinia, at Turin. In fact, they are pro cured from the King's vineyards, exclusively, by Mr. Lester, for the purpose of transplantation in the United States. The wine made from such grains i3 a most delicate Champagne We trust that Mr. Harold, of Glen Gove, who has received the specimens that Mr. Lester gave us, will take good care of them, and that in l?ss than twenty years, or at least during the generation of his children, the " Lester Italian champagne" may distinguish the northern side of Long Island for many years after. Forgery in Wai-l stbket. ? A great deal of noise has been made about the great discovery of a for gery in Wall street, and men turn up to Heaven the whites of their eyes and kthe browns of their hands on all sides. A forgery in Wall street, however, is only one of the natural results of the system of busi ness adopted in that eminently respectable neigh borhood. There are individuals there of the high est respectability and utmost purity and piety of cha racter, but the system in which they live and move and have their being is enough to corrupt a city of ten times the size of New York. We do not be lieve that the wicked of Sodom and Gomorrah were half so bad as the brokers and money-changers of Wall street, who live on the green ones of that lo cality. Travel to Bosto.v. ? We understand that an outside communication with the Long Island Hail road is to commence to-morrow. The fine steamer Worcester, commanded by the popular and gentle manly Captain Bacon, is to be placed on th? route. She will leave ( Jreenport Monday, Wednesday and l?'riday, on the arrival of the train from New York The Worcester is favorably known as one of the steamers recently on the line from New York to Norwich. The fare is to be one dollar only. By Express from Coney Island. ? Highly hi. roitTA.NT. ? By a pigeon express, which started from Coney Island, performing the distance in twelve minutes, 27i seconds, we tire in receipt of highly iin|*>rtant intelligence from that region, and of ex reeding interest at the present time. It seems that a rumor prevailed over Coney Island^ on the day before yesterday, that Gov. Dorr, who has tilled so large a space in the eye of a State, over whose whole extent a person might pass in a pleasant morning's walk, was determined to have a government at some place, arguing very naturally, ihat there is no use in being a governor, without something to govern. Jn short, rumor attributed to him a determination to take possesion of Coney Island, and become sale monarch, law giver, and protector thereof, as was SanchoParza of the no lest renowned island of Barataria, according to the veri table narrative of the historian Cervantes. Of course, a high degree of excitement, and some ex KSl>eration were created among the |>eop!e ; a des patch was hurried off with the warlike news in all directions, and the present governor, Gil Davis, was called by a thous.ind vociferous throats, to come and assume the defence of the common weal, to which call lie answered in person, with extraordi nary expedition; summoned his Executive Council, ind all the great officers of state, where resolutions were passed with unsur|?assed unanimity to discoim tenance and oppose, ci 1 1 iirmil , and with all the resources of that maritime. state, any and every at tempt of the said Dorr, to make a descent, alias visit, on the territory of Coney Island, either by sea or land. One of the orators, at a public indignation meeting, declared that although the island had ac quired much celebrity for clam oakes, he would die rather than see that ancient and venerated custom violated by the presiding genius of another dynasty Another s|ieaker declared that the Empire Club, and their political fraternities, had determined to organ ize and arm and accompany Gov. Dorr for the ex press pm-pose of causing commotion and turmoil in their peaceful quarters, such as had disturbed Khode ! aUad As soon as those able speakers laid bare the dark plans of the enemy, it was resolved at once, to call in the whole military fbrc<?s of the Island, to distri bute munitions of war and provisions, consisting principally of clams, tn set double sentries on all the vulnerable ooints of the roast, to put thr fortifica tions in a thorough state of defence, and with a i rust in Providence, and dry powder, thus await the coming of Dorr ana his hosts, who, it is confidently expected would disapjiear as fast as " the leaves of the forwt when autumn hath blown." Theatrical*. Park Theatre. ? The manager of the French : comiMtny has put forth for this evening a bill worthy of our Anniversary of Independence. The French actors will perform " The Swiss Cottage," Lt Cha let, the characters in which, will be unstained by Mme. Stephen, CcBuriot and Douvry, and will be , followed by Let Premieres Armes de Richelieu, the , charming vaudeville, that was received with so much , applause two weeks ago, and so well played by Mme. Stephen, M'lle. Maria and Mme. Richer. J The leader of the orchestra, Mr. Prevost, has com posed expressly for this evening, a Patriotic Cantata and a National March, in which all the artists wil] appear. Miss Turnbull, the danteuse, will execute the .laleo de Xeres and the Polka, with Mr. Martin. No bill is more attractive amongst all those of our theatres, and we are certain that toreign artists will be remunerated for their endeavors to contribute to the national ffte, by a crowded house. Monday next, Robert le Diable will be performed for the se cond time. Castle Garden.? The Proprietors here are de termined to excel all other competitors in presenting a bill worthy of the day. There are to be three per formances nere during the day and evening. One commencing at half past 10 o'clock, A. M., another at 3 P. M. and another at 8 P. M. They are all of the most brilliant kind. The Herculean Force by the Elssler Brothers, their comic tableaux, in whicn Mr. Parsloe takes ail excellent part, the dancing of M'lle JJesjardins and Miss Cohen, Herr Cline's per formance and grand display of Fireworks, all will be given with manv other first rate amusements. The promenade will afford a beautiful view of the bay and shipping, dressed with flags, the men of war and t!ie various steamboats that will to-day crowd the llarbor. Altogether we know of no place that is sujierior to Castle Garden to see all that is inter esting on such a day as this. Nihlo's Gar he*.? -The performances at this popu lar place of amusement, this evening, are unusually attractive; in addition to the Acrobat Family, there will be the most brilliant display of Fireworks ever given in this city. The evening's entertainments will conclude with a popular Farce, in which Messrs. Nickinson, Placide, and Miss Taylor will appear.'s Opera House. ? The company of Ethio pians "five two excellent |?>rformances to-day, one at 3 P. M. and one at 8j P. M. The 0|>eras of Buy-I Dare and the Virginian Girl will be presented, and the great favorites they have become with the pub lic will be a guarantee of full houses. The gems from the Bohemian Girl are introduced in the course of the pieces and are always received with immense applause. This will be an admirable place for those who enjoy a rich burlesque. Vacxiiall Garden. ? There is an afternoon and evening performance here, the first to commence at 2 1'. M. and tue second at 8^ P. M. The evening's entertainments will conclude with a grand Military and Civic Hall, for which a new and elegent floor has been laid in the Garden. Paterson's splendid Cotillon Hand is engaged for the occasion, and the floor will be under the management of Mr. De La Roe. The entertainments are of the usual kind, and Barney Williams, the Lthiopean Operatic Bro thers and Sisters, and the rest of the talented com pany appear. Rxruraloiia and Am interne nts of the Day. Amidst the variety of excursions that are set forth to-day, it is difficult to decide which is best, and in order that every one may settle the matter to their own taste, we give below a list of a number of the most prominent ones: Steamhoat Croton will make a most delightful excursion, leaving New York from Fulton slip at8J A.

L. | Stevens will leave foot of Amos street at 8 A. M., Canal street at a quarter past 8 [and pier No 1 N. R., at 9 A.

The Steamhoat Raritan, will leave the foot of Barclay street at J> A.

Mr. Venn opens this cottage to-day as a free concert room, and gives an entertainment in honor of the day. Harlem Park. ? There is to beji trotting match here, which will be interesting to those uiven to sporting affairs. Long Island Railroad ? No train leaves for Newport and Providence to-day, the advertisement that appeared yesterday being imperfect. The Foot-races ai*i> Hurdle Race over the Beacon Course, Hobokkn. ? The sport announced to come oil yesterday, as above, was postponed in consequence of the unsettled state of the weather, and the condition of the track, arising f rom the hea vy rain of the nrevious night. It the weather be at all favorable, the hurdle race and five mile foot-race, will come oil' on Monday next, and the ten mile loot-race on the Wednesday following. We have received a communication from Buffalo stating thai " Steeprock," the Indian, will not start in the ten mile race. We know not how true this may be.? There are others in the race of equal if not superior (Kiwers, to make the atlair as interesting as desired The struggle will be between GildersUeve, Un American 1 leer, and the Iroquois Indian. There is also to be a pedestrian hurdle race, which will doubtless atiord considerable amusement, if not sport. Trouble on Long Island. ? The " Indians" in SuHolk Co., have torn up more rails. They are de termined to be revenged on the Railroad Co. Plillntlelphln Hotel*. Now that the travelling season has fairly set in, the public begin to look out for those houses when the most comfort and enjoyment ean be obtained. Indeed, so gregarious are we, that it is ahnoluisly necessary that all the conveniences and luxuries oi home should be found in a Hotel, in make it tolera-i ? >le. We are led to these p-marks in perusing tht Philadelphia pa|?ers, which are very lavish of praise upon the recent improvements ana embellishments introduced by Mr. Hurtwell, in the Washington House. His reception room i^ decidedly the most ijorgeois and expensive in its furniture, carpet, piano, etc , we ever remember to have seen, and is li: for an emperor. Beautiful bathing rooms have also been added, for i he convenience of its patrons; but its chief merit lies in its pleasant location, its neatness, and the ad mirable system of its management, conducted with the greatest regard to the quietness and happiness of those who soiourn there. We could say much more in jiraise of this house; but few who visit I'hilaidcl phia, will fail to appreciate its merits, which are ad ded to recently; not forgMting Mr. Haskell, of this ??ity, who has joined his services in making people happy there. The Marshall HotrsRhssthed its title, and coa' of dust, which had accumulated for several years in which it was closed, and having been re-painted, re-furnished, and christened anew, as the Columbia House, opens on the first mat., under favorable aus pices, by Messrs, Hagley, McKen/ie"A' Co.

The store belonged tu Messrs. H.ltO. Berry, dry goods merchants. Tlie Are was first observed by a boy who had been sweeping some papers from behiud the counter. It originated from goods which were hanging in the window, igniting with a gas lamp. The boy on perceiving the (lames, hallowed fire to the parties who were in an apartment over the store, and ran up stairs Tor a bucket which had some water iu it, thinking ho could have extinguished the (lames himself, but on again reaching the basement, was compelled to take his depar ture as quick as possible, but not without having his hands and face severely burned, as the fire by that time had suread with much rapidity from ono end of the es tablishment to the other. The goods in the store consist ed principally of printed lawns, muslins, hosiery, and a variety of other articles, a uuantity of which were en tirely consumed, the balance neiug either much charred or stolen. One of the partners was much inured, hav ing fallen down a very steep stairs while trying to es cape ; his wife, child and brother were letdown through u front window from the second story. Alter the (ire was got under, Mrs. Berry w us iu the yard at the rear of the store and tracked a quantity of the property, which evidently had been dropped by tome thieves, who while the work of destruction was going on, were taking care of number one. The property was insured, but it is be lieved the insurauce will not cover the whole amount of damage. The damage done to the fixtures was very tri fling, the outside of them being only slightly burned. The amount of goods on the premises did not exceed fivo thousand dollars. Movement* of Travellers. There was, yesterday, evidently a further increase of travellers, as may be gleaned from the following com pendium from fhc registries of tho principal hotels. American. ? L.

Ono of the most infamous and extraor dinary cases came to the notice of tho sitting Magistrate to-day, which we have heard of for a long time. Can such things bo, in the very heart and centre of this good ly city ? in broad and open day ? and yet pass by us as the idle wind ? Our long-winded, over-praised and much talked-of moral reform societies, where are you f Sit you there, in your out-of-the-way oflice, while deeds of horror, viilany'and fraud are enacted all round you ? Do something ? arise from your slumber and go forth into the dark lanes and narrow, crowded alleys, and succor, relieve, advise and assist their wretched, poverty-strick en inmates; and then can you come before the publio and ask for aid and sympathy. A respectable married lady, by the uame of Mary Ann Brown, whose husband is now in Toronto, came weep ing to the Police Office to-day, and made an affidavit to the following facts She went to board a few days since with Mr. and Mrs- Little, in Roosevelt street. She had been there but a short time when Mrs. Little wished her to prostitute herself for gold.and insisted upon her doing so. Upon her peremptorily refusing, sho received several severo blows on the face and breast, and finally was stripped by Mrs. Little of her dress, and a wet, filthy one left in its place. This is one of the most villainous cases which we have heard of, and deserves the utmost rigor. BrRriLARV ? The house of E. K.

Resides, the continued noise, smoke and sulphurous smell on one of the warmest days of the year, is in itself a most intolerable nuisance There is a city ordinance against this practice. Why is it iot enforced as well as that against Booths ! The Nfew Police should do something towards abating this nuisance. I am no advocate for Booths, but hink them very little or no disadvantage to any >ne, while to many they are a source of gratification ? itrf amusement.
