THE N E IV YORK H E R A L D . Vol. XI., No. l*4_Whnl? No. 4044. Price Two Cwata. The Celebration Yesterday, The morning of yesterday was bright and fair, and both earth and heaven seemed to unite in the cele bration of the day. A gentle and refreshing breeze tempered the intensity ol the mid-summer sun, and the weather wan in.all respects singularly propitious. From early morn 'till near midnight the streets of the city were tilled with thronging crowds, but no gross breaches of the public (>eace marred the occasion and very few accidents occurred. It was matter of uni versal and gratifying remark, that so little in temperance was apparent On the whole, the cele bration in this city paused off very quietly ? more quietly than any previous "Fourth of July" in our recollection. The Battery ani> tuk Bay. ? The military were nil astirat an early hour, and by half past 8 o'clock, Broadway presented a most lively aspect, as the dil ferent companies of artillery marched down towards tlu* Battery. There was a very numerous turn-out of the various companies, both foot and horse, Na tional Guard, Scottish Guard, Lancers and Hussars, all accompanied by thtfir respective bands. The General Ollicers and (heir Starts, in all the pride ol prancing chargers, cocked hats, streaming leathers, and lace-bedizened uniforms, astonished the country people who, at this early hour, were |>ouring into the city from all the various ferries. The weather was most propitious lor the celebration, and the cool morning presented a more enlivening prospect to ihe military, than did the scorching weather which they met witn during their parade end march on the day of the Jackson procession. On arriving at the But tery, at 9 o'clock tkey were formed intoline, and re viewed by Major General Sandford, after which they took up their line of march from the Battery to Whitehall, and thence through Broadway to War ren street, down Warren to West Broadway, through West Broadway to Chambers street, thence to Cen tre street, and thence to the east gate of the Park, where, after paying the honors of a marching salute to the Mayor and Corporation, und tiring a feu de joie, they were dismissed. The scene at the Battery was not so lively as we have seen it on similar occa sions in former years, though it was crowded to ex cess in the morning. Boys firing crackers, women frightened at the same, and people walking up and down in search of enjoyment, comprised pretty much all that was going on. There appeared to be but a small amount of drinking and carousing in this part of the city, and in fact, in the afternoon the Battery presented more the same appearance that it does on a .Sunday than any thing else, as, after the militaryleft,but little attraction was to be found there. The different steamboats that land in the vicinity kept on till mid-day pouring out a continual stream of pleasure seekers from Staten and Long Islands, who spread themselves over the city. The vessels of war in the bay were all dressed off with Hags, also the merchant ships and the numerous steamboats that were speeding off in all directions, were beauti fully decorated, and as all of the latter had bands of music on board, the sound of the distant music fell pleasantly on the ear. At twelve o'clock, a national salute was fired from on l-ioard the Nortn Carolina, anil from the forts in the harbor. The appearance of the bay with the numerous vessels that are at an chor there dressed up, the hundreds of small boats darting to and fro, the ships coming in from sea, and the steamboats dashing about in all directions, was most beautiful. On passing Wall street, it looked dull enough, and both it and the other cross streets pre sented a striking contrast to Broadway ? in fact, it api>eared as if all the other parts of the city were de serted for this great thoroughfare. The Park. ? City Mall. ? This grand centre of attraction, from an early hour, drew together vast crowds in succession, every hour in the day. So early as nine o'clock, were to be seen, flocking to wards the City Hall, all classes of our citizens, from the fair "demoiselle of blushing fifteen," to the more sober and staid maiden of twenty, escorted by well selected troupes of beaux, whose gallantry, and "gaUedecaur" were the theme of universal re mark. The Park was nearly filled up, to its utmost capacity, at eleven o'clock, with a " motley group," consisting of the "jolly tar," with his "black eyed Sue;" the rollicking widow and her "down-east" suitor; the "grave, the gay, the lively, the severe;" the whole presented a sort of " olla-podrida," of humanity; which could not be equalled in London or I'aris. Every nation on the habitable globe, Wi?s, on this occasion, effectively represented The me tamorphosed cockney, half yankeefied, having his two cent "cheroot" in requisition, lounging along with an overweening air of self-consequence. The sleek haired damsels of I >utchland ? the Turk ? the Jew ? the Atheist ? the beauteous "daughters ol Gotham ? the "gazelle eyed" maiden of sunny Italy ?the "dusky Venus" of Afric's clime, all flocked forward to en|oy the festivities, and enliven the proceedings. Though, a considerably observant eye would at once discover the national characteristics of many ul the various groupes in attendance; yet, it was easy to perceive, that but one feeling predominated in the breasts of all, namely, a thorough devotion to the common interests of their adopted country ? a reve rence for its institutions ? a cordial sympathy in cel ebrating the great National Festival, which all seem ed so much to enjoy. At halt past eleven o'clock. 1 lis Honor, the Mayor, accompanied by Ouvrr Charlick, Esq, President of the Hoard of Alder nun; and Nathaniel Pearce, Esq., the gentleman ly President of the Board of Assistants, followed by the Common Council, entered the apartments in City Hall, which were set aside tor refreshments. Mayor llavemeyer and the Com m >n Council, immediately on entering, proceeded to dispense the hospitalities of the city to a highly fashionable assemblage of our fair citizens, who graced the rooms with their presence. The fare consisted of the choicest description of every de licacy > t the season, which could be procured in ac cordance with the moat rigid tem|?erance principles. After partaking of some refreshment, and adminis tering to the vast groups who Hocked forward to the apartment, the Mayor and Common Council pro ceeded to the front of the City Hall, to receive a sa lute f rom Major General Sonaford and the Military. At this stage, the entire scene was truly animating. The Park was nearly lined around with cavalry ? the shouting was incessant, and the balcony in front of the City T I nil presented a perfect eala.xy of gorge ous female loveliness ? of classic beauty ? thai "old Gotham" may well feel proud of. The Major < !ene ral hereupon ordered the troops to fire a ftu-de-jcie, which was kept up for a considerable time, alter which several dispersed to the various places of pub lic amusement. Mr. Taylor and family, of the City Hall, whose nssiduitv and attention to visitors at all times, have gained them universal respect and esteem, were busily occupied during the day in dis|>ensiiuf |?olite ness and attention to the vast crowds who (locked to this quarter up to a very late hour. < iover.nor's Rooms ? These apartments were fill ed to excess; and, independent of the attractions which the day called forth, are at all times well wor thy of a visit, to every tiill-souled American. The rooms are tastefully furnished, and are decorated with well executed portraits of several of the heroes I of the revolution. The personal character of every 1 one ot these noble-hearted heroes, who lought and bled in the cause of human liberty, of |>opular free dom, may be iraeed in their fine, manly counten ances. Thorough portraiture, the sturdy arm, the stout, athletic form of most of those eminent men, who carved the wayto national independence with the sword, at once awakens a feeling of reverential re pud in the breast of every lover of popular freedom. I'he great " Faiher of his Country," is here beauti fully represented. The very (Hag that waved defi ance at the British lion, ana, that waved triumphant upon the plains of Saratoga, boine aloft by the proud American eagle, is to be seen here. The identical chair in which the immortal Washington first sat on being appointed President, after the revolution, is to seen here; his celebrated bureau, as well asa splen did selection of highly executed paintings of the fol lowing distinguished heroes of the revolution. Pre sidents, Governors, am-l other distinguished and eminent men; a beautiful marble bust of the great [)e Witt Clinton, paintings of Sir Walter ltnleigh, Columbus, Bolivar, Governor Throop, Swift, W I- i li.ims, bronze Statue of Jefferson, Governor Lewis, j Macomb, Huane, Montgomery, Franklin, Clinton, V'arick, Livingston, Wuleit, < iovernor Yates, Hull, i Kadcliif, Colden, Allen, Paulding, Hone, liowne, Gideon Lee. Lawrence, Brown, Perry, Lafayette, Aaron Clark, Deontur, McDonough, Mainbridge, I ( iovernor Tompkins, Stuyvesant, Presidents Mon roe and Jackson. What a bright page in American history do noi such an array of illustrious men illuminate 1 The bold contour of most of the countenances of -those noble hearted men, almost breathing on the canvas, was ihi subject of frequent remark and admiration during the day. Tin: Mii.itarv Mikpi.ay. ? The turnout ol the mill til ry.was one of the chief features of the day. It was really creditable, in the highest degree, to the city and tin* State, The " Jirst division of New \ ork State Artillery," comprises some of the linest, and most effective regiments in tha Union. Fore View of the Park on the Fourth, most amongst ilicrn is the lltli, Colonel Yates ? the strength, discipline, and efficiency of which formed the cruel subject of the Brigade orders, promul gated at the close of the review, by < leneral G. P. Morris. Colonel Yates has devoted great atten tion to his regiment; and with the able aid of Gapt. W.Jenkins, of the " Morris Cadets," a veteran soldier, well known in all tile regions hereabouts, has succeeded in making ii second to none, either in the regular or militia service of the United States, ft the same fostering care were bestowed upon the 18th regiment of the same brigade. n? regiment in the Union could surpass it. As it is, the Scotch tcompanies command universal attention and re spect from their line military deportment, and mar tial appearance; the result entirely of the strict care, and devoted attention of Captains Castle and Craig. Colonel Ming hao much to be proud of in his com mand. The "Independence Guard," Captain Cairns, paraded with the 18th Regiment, and excited great admiration on account of the perfection of their appea ranee and discipline. Capt. Cairns is well known us one of our most ellicient of ficers. It was a source of much mortification to the statf of the 13th, that as the Jndei>endence Guard and Italian Guard, Jparading with tne regiment upon an invitation, no music made its appearance according to its appointment, and consequently was compelled to parade without a full band. The "Italian Guard" is composed of a number of tine looking Italians, and attracted much attention. Altogether tne jwrude yesterday was very imposing, and at every view evinced the marked improvement in appearance, ap pointments and discipline, which has of late taken place in the various rortis comprising the First Divi j sion; and certainly, when we consider the time, la bor and expense bestowed by each citizen soldier on the acquirement of the knowledge of the military profession, these displays should be regarded with universal and grateful admiration and esteem. Civic Procession. ? The Civic Societies began to form at 8? o'clock on Astor souare. These consist ed of the Shamrock Benevolent Society, and the Laborer's Union Benevolent Society, with banners and insignia. From this place, their route lay down Broadway to the Tabernacle, where they assembled. This large edifice was nearly filled, and would have been completely so, but that there was a charge made for admission. As it was, the house present ed a gay, and rather rovel aspect. The two socie ties numliered close on three thousand, and a more manly, hearty, and powerful looking set of men than filled the whole body of the building, could not be seen. The green shoulder scarfs too, for no thing but the green was apparent on every hand, the banners of the same color, all was in perfect uni formity, and had a capital effect to the s|>ectator. The Declaration of Independence was read by Mr. John Collins, in u rieli Irish accent, and with heartfelt emphasis; it was listened to with all the reve ranee such a noble production demands. Mr. II. Byrne was the orator of the day. He ad dressed the assembly for close upon two hours, and elicited repeated bursts of applause, as he spoke of the first struggle in this land for independence, sketched her present and growing greatness, con trasted the glorious revolution of 1776 with the bloody and godless one of France in 1798. Ilespoke te his.Irish hearers asAmerican citizens ; most pathe tically alluded to their sequestration trom their dear native Island. and concentrated their views upon one ijrand consideration ? their rights and duties as American citizens, and in this connection enforced upon them the paramount importance of educating their children, and to instil into their minds the might of knowledge, and the worth of a compre hensive moral, intellectual and religious education. With the oration, the services closed. Thesocie ties re-formed and marched throughChambers street round the Park, thence down Barclay to Hudson st, along 1 ludson st. and 8th avenue to 1 Ith street, ar riving at Union square. Alter making the circuit of I'nion square, they marched down the'Bowery and through Grand and Marion to Prince street, where they dismissed. Two effective bands, in military costume attended them in their route, and perform ed some pieces in the Tabernacle. This part of the day's proceedings was certainly not one of the least pleasing. Among the others who held this anniversary with rill due honors, was the Empire Club. They assem bled in full strength at their head quarters in Park llow, at ten o'clock, nnd the Don Giovanni of New York, ( apt. Rynders, having taken the chair, an address on the occasion was delivered by Mr. Iteese, one of the members, which was listened to throughout with the most marked attention, and eli cited great applause. Kxcirsions. ? At an early hour the sleeping citi zens were awake by the ringing ol bells, tiring ol guns, squibs, and pop gnns ? the shouts of boys and all the usual e> thusiasm which yearly visit the breasts ?f the patriotic freemen of America. All Uotham was, in tact wide awake by halt past lour o'clock, and readv for lun, frolic and enjoyment Those who intended leaving the hot and noisy city, were of course first out of bed. Servants were called for ? breakfasts demanded ? hot water and towels in great requisition? every thing out of plac ? and nothing to be found. The greatest confusion existed in all quarters. At length (lie streets and avenues leading to the wharves were thronged with Cay troops of laughing, bright eyed maidens, with their gallant cavaliers, with hurried trend and eager anxious faces, wending their way towards the steam ers which were to bear them tar from the noise and confusion of this vast metropolis. The Hay and shipping presented a brilliant and in teresting appearance ? Mags and streamers were Hy ing: and all was life, gaiety and good humor. ? Steamboats were getting up steam, i.nd Knicker bockers hurrying on board. The decks of the steamer Croton, at Fulton slip, advertised for an excursion to llmt delightful sylvan retreat, (Jlen Cove, as well as New Rochelle. Oys ter nay and Cold Spring, were soon crowded with the elite of the city, who preferred wild and roman tic scenery, fresh" air, and a capital dinner, to the tiring ol squibs, pistols and rockets. As t lie boat left the wharf, a magnificent barouche, drawn by splendid bay horses, .md tilled with "fair women and brave men," drove down. They hailed her, but 10 no purpose; the steam was up, the moorings loosed, and away she (lew, while strains of soft and fairy like music floated on the breeze. Never have we seen fair, smiling faces, become more suddenly o'ercast. Vexation and uneasiness usur|v*>d the place of mirth and gaiety; it was positively too bad; the lovely creatures were disappointed, and there was nothing left but to pout anil cry. They at last, re solved, however, to drive to the Abbey Hotel, on the Mloonnngdale road, and spend tin- day in running through its delightful srardens, and li flint; from the banks. The steamers llighluiulei and I'ticawerr also very much crowded, and amid the shouts and cheers ol the passengers, left the wharf at 8 o'clock, while the iiaritan, for Brunswick; Hamilton, for Fori Smash of a Booth*wi t,ha 4th. Hamilton; Delaware, tor Sandy" Hook, anil Inde pendence, for Perth Amboy, were all thronged with people, anxious to escape the noise of the city, and enjoy a delightful sail, and the peaceful retirement of the country. More than live thousand citizens visi ted, end great credit is due the Messrs. Stevens lor their arrangements at the Ferry. i^Fi he works ? Tub Park. ? The Fireworks in the evening were of the most gorgeoas description ; and drew together an immense concourse of per sons. The works were let oil' in front of the City 1 bill, and also from the balcony; and much of the effect was lost t? hundreds who attended, the works bein" obscured by the thick foliage of the trees. ? The liritig of crackersand other fireworks by groups of overgrown hoys in men's clothing, was, us usual, dangerous. However, every thing p issed oil' with the utmost harmony and satisfaction. There was an excellent baud sittioneil in front, on the balcony, who played a variety ot ?oul-utirrtng airs and select pieces with admirable taste and execution. At half past 8 o'clock several rockets in succes sion were .et off, and shot their fiery course through the heavens, displaying on high, in rich profusion, groups of variegated stars of every, hue and color in the rainbow. To attempt to describe the fireworks would be almost an impossibility. Every fantastic shape and form, from the hissing snake to the fabled liery dragon, vomiting forth the element upon which it breathes, were beautifully represented. The rain bow which the illustrious bard beautifully describes, a sort of "heavenly cameleon," was represented to the minutest shade. At one time a gorgeous sun burst would captivate the eye ? baptised in molten gold, And cradled in vermillion." At another time, a brilliant display of bright starlight, which eventually would fatfe away, to again burst forth in a display ot dazzling blue, or azure, or green, ?r rich purple. Altogether the fireworks reflect the highest possible credit upon i lie gentleman who got them up, Mr. J. Kdge, of Jersey City. The last piece certainly surpassed anything of the kind ever before exhibited in this city, as was universally admitted bv all. It was ? ?xiuliited Iroin the balcony, and displayed in rich vermilion and golden letters the words " Puc it amor patriie" (Love of country predominates.) Also, in rich gol den letters ? " Washington." "I77(i." "Union." There were several booths around the Park for the sale of refreshments. At the conclusion of the I i reworks, the vast concourse who had collected, dispersed in all quarters, and all passed till with the utmost harmony, if we except the blaze ot some few muslin frocks and bonnets, which did not escape the crackers of the overgrown boys and bigchildrtn that kept continually tiring them off. Among the ma. iy display* ot fireworks yesterday , few were more conspicious or more general than those in front ot the United States Hotel, at the loot of Pulton street, by a :>ng of what may be termed hotel loungers, such as may be every day seen on the steps i>t the different taverns in the city, or with the soles ot their feet displayed at the windows. The amusement of the party alluded to consisted of throw ing crackers and chasers amid the hundreds of iiereons, particularly females, who, throughout die day, landed from the Iirooklyu ferry boats, making them run m every direction through mud and mire, to avoid them, to the great personal alarm of the females and children, ana the bespat tering of many a neatly got up muslin dress and de licate white t rows'" rs. To such an extent was this carried, thatfmany persons turned op other streets to avoid tnem. We heard of one female being thrown down hi consequence, but she was more frightened and dirtied than hurt. Thk Thkatrks. (,'astu! (Jahukn. ? There were three performances given here during the day, each one ot which were attended well, but the evening one had one of the largest audiences that we believe have ever collected together in one theatre in the United States. The whole of the vast building was crowded to an extent that no sitting room could be obtained by latecomers, for love or money, and many witnessed the iieriorinanae through the doors that open on the esplanade ; there could not of been less than from twelve to thirteen thousand souls assembled, and the sea of upturned faces presented a most extraordinary view. A more thorough set of pleasure seekers we never saw ; ihey were pleased with the excellent performances, with the refreshments, with the splendid fireworks, with themselves, in fact with everything. Amidst such a vast assemblage, the most excellent order was preserved, and it speak d volumes for our citizens, when we say, that daring the whole evening as much quiet and regularity was observed, as on any common occasion in a theatre . Messrs. French and lleiser reaped a rich harvest Yesterday, and deservedly too, for their great eflbrts to plettse the puhlio NtHuo'a t'ARBsn. -This rmhetrJ establishment whs thronged last night by at least five thousand persons. Every seat in the theatre was occupied he tore ball-past i, and the grand saloon and gardens were abve with the ilitr and curious. Messrs. Set ton and Chipiiendale, in the farce of Uncle Sum, ac quitted themselves with great credit, and the display of fireworks was altogether su|K*rior to those shown on any farmer occasion. All seemed well pleased Niblo is surely on the high road to fortune. Palmo's Opera House. ? This place of amuse ment was well attended by a very respectable au dience. The grand burlesque ojiera of "Buy-I dare," went off with great eclat, and many of the pieces were encored. The solo on the accordion, l>y Mr. Huntley, was greatly and justly applauded, and the audience was scarcely satisfied with one encore. "The Virginian Girl excited much laugh ter, particularly the solo 011 the combadoor. Indeed the whole performance was most excellent, and well worthy of the patronage it received. This is the last night of their |>erformance, and those who have never seen this talented troupe, had better take the opportunity. We can assure them they will be amlpy gratified and amused. The Bowery? Astonishing Feat. ? The most as tonishing feat tol the day was |>erforincd by Mr. Hood, of the Bowery. At about seven o'clock in the evening, a vast crowd were collected in the Bow ery, to witness this extraordinary feat, namely, warning across the entire width of the Bowery, op posite tne theatre, on a tight rope. The rope was extended from the highest roof *?( the houses at either side, measuring about ninety feet across, and the elevation from the street was calculated at about proceeded across, the crowds of spectators below in Hi" street looking up With evident anxiety, in al most breathless suspense. To the astonishment of all, Mr. Hood performed the feat with perfect ease, and 011 arriving at his place of destination, after the performance, was hailed with loud, lonp and reiter ated applause. The theatre was filled almost to suf focation during the evening. The bill of fare was excellent. The Chatham was crowded to excess long before seven o'clock, and several unable to procure places, were compiled to go to some other place of amuse ment. Accidents ? There were but few accidents during the day, as far as we could ascertain, and no fires whatever occurred to mar the festivity of the day. We heard of but two casualties, one in Ann street and the other in Chatham street. The first was a boy, whose hand was shattered bv the premature explosion of the gun ; and the second, a man whose arm was also shattered by the bursting of a pistol. A young woman was run over by an omnibus in Park row, but no bones broken; the extent of her injuries, if any, we were not able to ascertain. There were but few casualties beyond what we have already given. A young child was run over in the Bewery by a carriage, about dusk, and seriously injured. At the Hospital they had but a few cases of burns, and none of them serious. SroRTlNG. ? The following match was announced to come oil over the Harlem Course yesterday. ? Purse of $30. Mile heats, best three in five, under the saddle. H. Brooks enters ch g Empire. P. Hunt b g Moscow. J. Bridges ch g Robin. It having been previously ascertained that the two other horses belonged to the same person, or came out of the same stable, the other refused to go, justly deeming that two against one was too much of a good thing. It is hoj>ed that all such tricks will be thus defeated. Immediately after came offa pacing match for a nurse of i?30, free for all pacing horses, mile heats, nest 3 111 .) under the saddle. H. Wells enters b g Sir Archer. H Woodruff " b m Aggy Down, A. Conklin " gr g Chief. ? Bertine " ch h Krelinghuysen. P. Arnold " bl g Black Joke. This was a very exciting atfair, about one of the best that has taken ulace in this neighborhood for some time past. Throughout it was well and beau tifully contested. The following is the result : Mr. Woodrull 's 1> m Aggy Pown (Woodruff) 2 2 12 1 I Mr. A.

The attendance was resectable, and the track in pretty good order, considering the heavy rain of the previous day ; here and there it was a little sticky, !>ut not so much so as to spoil sport. The Avkni es and Haki.em. ? The numbers who resorted to Yorkville, Harlem, and the beautiful spots along the avenues, were not so numerous as are frequently met with on Sundays. Not but at the same time there was a goodly muster, and the omnibuases and railway cars were well filled, each trip, throughout the day; but they were mostly strangers in those parts, or families endeavoring to escape from the eternal buzz and crack, crack that prevailed 111 the city. There might be seen the family man with his wife, and some five or six children, beautifully tailed oil. unless jwhen. brought un to a dead stand lit an apple stall or a candy shop. There were a great number of visitors at the reser voir during the day, where every attention was paid to them in showing and explaining the works, flee. At Yorkville and I Prospect Hall, Hurlgate,iVc.; small family parties might he frequently met with, some pic nicking, and others taking whatever the different houses aflorded. The great point of attraction at Jlarlem was (reiger's pleasure gardens. Here the youngsters revelled in delight, being free to help themselves to the fruit with which the trees wi re loaded ; and bountifully they helped themselves, no doubt at the cost of many a stomach ache to-day. In this neighborhood there was held a Ladies' Fair, on behalf of the Presbyterian Church, which afforded the resi dents some|litile amusement, the church h trifle of pro lit, and the ladies an opportunity of displaying ^them selves and their wares to the best advantage. There were also some good trotting matches oyer the Har letn course, which attracted the attention and pre sence of the s|>orting gents of the nigh borhood ar.d New York ; and before and afterwards some trials of speed, upset and breakage along the road. The great attraction of the day iiijthis neighborhood, was a most beautiful new omnibus, drawn by six grey horses, with nodding plumes, engaged by the Phila delphia Washington Association, who were cn a visit to this city to spend the Anniversary of the Na tion's Independence. The principal point of altrac traction on the Bloom ingdale road was the Abbey, 111 whose sylvan shades many families took refuge from the din and turmoil of the city Nor was Cor poral Thompson forgotten amid the many at tractions provided, by his military friends in par ticular, so that his house was pretty well jammed through ont the day. During the whole of this route we did not observe a single accident of any moment, nor above two or three drunken persons, and one The Suburbs, Mr. Arnold's l>! g lilack .loke Mr. Wells' h g -Sir Archer Arnold's M g black. loke .4 3 3 1 4 4 3 0 S dr. and ,\I(, 'rery "''""dance of crackers and squibs, (heirisfivHu V*' ".7?
