NEW YORK HERALD. New York, TncxUy, July 8, IMS. Naval Court Martial ? We insert on the first page the contmuat.on of the report of the trial ol Captain V'oorhees up to the latest moment. Will there be War wit It Mfilro ] On all hands, you now hear the question will Mex ico make war against the United States ? The mer chant, the manufacturer, every man at all interested in the affairs of the country is asking what asjwct is this question of Texas annexation now about to as sume? Will there be war ? Will there he serious difficulty in the final settlement of this question ? In replying to this inquiry, it is necessary to look at the present position of Mexico, and its connec tion with European countries. If left to herself, Mexico would not attempt enter into any contest with thi? country. She is very well aware that to begin a j war with the United States on her own unaided resources, would be a hopeless work. The first blow struck b/ Mexico against this country would be but the signal for a great popular movement that would stop short of nothing less than the complete subju gation of ihe whole of Mexico itself to the sway ot this republic. Still, however.the original question re' mains, will there be war with Mexico ? Will serious difficulty grow out of annexation ? On this ques. tion the diplomatists of the day are at variance Even the merchants, politicians and speculators en tirelv di-agree, some thinking that, from all appear, ances, and the present position of parties in Mexico, and the internal conflict raging there, that some hos tile movement will be at once attempted by Mexico, by the closure of the ports, the issuing of letters of marque, and some other decided measures. What would be the consequence if Mexico pro ceed to actual hostility, and order all American citi zens to leave her territory ? Direct and series col lision ofthe two countries would be of course in tha[ case at once produced. It has been said that letters ot marque and reprisal have bern already issued by Mexico, and are in possession of certain parties at Havana, and ready for use in case of the consummu tion of the annexation resolutions. We do not know how soon we may have practical proof of this fact The Gulf of Mexico may be crowded with priva" teers before we imagine such a result. Such an oc currenco would be but the signal for the bursting forth of a war feeling amongst the masses of this country that would sweep every thing before it. In every asjtect of the case, it is surrounded with threatening omens, and it is impossible to tell how soon war may burst forth between the two coun tries, out of the present confused and tangled con dition of affairs. New York and Erie Railroad ? A corres|>on dent who signs himself " Fulton," has written us a letter on some matters relative to the above railroad, to which he appears to attach importance. After speaking of it as a great public work, as one giving the highest auguries of ultimate success ? as a grand conception, all of which are excusable in an ardent admirer of railroad enterprize, his next object seems to be to criminate certain parties, whom he styles designing men, in striving to impede and check its progress to completion. Fulton does not state any specitic facts, but very directly repeats that since the commencement of the three million subscription, those intriguing [eraons have made ef forts to |>oison the public mind, und nun confidence in the work. Ln declining to insert this letter of Fulton, it is not because he may not be right, and take proper views of the project and the misconduct of those connected with it; but because it seems worse than useless to reason with, or advise them. We have received numberless statements on both sides, find we are tired of their altercations, recrimination and squab bling. Since the beginning of the New York and Erie railroad, and the New York and Albany rail road, too, instead of unanimity, liberality, and ac tion, we have seen selfishness, intrigue, and faction prominent in the councils of the shareholders and directors. It is a disgrace to the capitalists of New York that neither this noranyother public enterprise ?with which they are connected, can go on in a man- ' ner becoming businessmen. Why do they not take I a iesson from the Bostonians, with whom to re solve and perform are one? What is there in the projects of New Yorkers necessarily to impose all this unprolific noise and difficulty, and make them like the mountain in labor! We agree with " Ful ? ton" that the pualic interest ought not to be para lyzed by the ambition and selfishness of a few, or of many, nor delay be caused in the completion of this railroad since it has been begun; but we again say th it there is no u?e in remonstrance or advice to these parlies who seem to be incapable of seeing their proper course, and pursuing it. Thurlow Weed aud his Libel Srrrs. ? A ra ther interesting libel case, inwhich our ancient Iriend and pistol, Thurlow Weed, figures as the defendant, has just been tried before the Circuit Court of the Third Circuit of this State. It was instituted by M. Costigan, formerly Superintendant of the Mo hawk and Hudson Railroad Company, for the pur pose of recovering damages for an alleged libel which appeared in the Evening Journal in the spring <if 1843, charging the plaintiff with despatching over the railroad a number of illegal locofoco voters for the purpose of influencing a local election in the city of Albany. The trial is rej>orted at length in the Journal, and is really rather amusing. That the il legal voters were conveyed on the railroad was very satisfactorily proved, and the details given in evi dence as to their treatment in Albany are quite funny. * >ne fellow swore that they were put " three in a bed," and that there "was not much money given them," although they had plenty to drink." The Jury gave a verdict for Weed, that is to say, they found that the statements published by him were true. We are rejoiced to find that Thnrlow has spoken the truth ? for once, and has exposed the knavery of trading politicians It is true ihe delin quents are locofocos, but that will make no difference with peaceable men of that party. If Thurlow can only make out as good a case in the famous Koor back business, he will be more fortunate than is uuiversally anticipated. The fact is, if he could drop that ridiculous efiort to sustain himself in his Roorback case, he would be securing the freedom of the press much more effectually than by jierse verintt in such a ridiculous suit. The Nkw Post Office Law.? We do not know how the new Fust Office law will be carried into operation, or whether it will have a fair chance to make itself popular with the masses under the pre sent regime From some of the first steps taken it would appear that it is an even question, and that much uncertainty hangs about it. The Postmaster f this city, in the very first measure to carry one ,lthe most important provisions of the law into ef fect. namely, the Post Office advertising, has viola ted the spirit of the law in a most essential degree. By the new law ??very Postmaster is directed to pub lish the letters in the two largest circulating papers of the district in which h<- is located. Now, we aver, without the slightest hesitation, that this pro vision has been violated by the Postmaster of this city, and that he has actually ordered the publication of his letters in a paper, contrary to the provisions of the law. We do not believe that it was the intention of the Postmaster < teneral, or the President. 'however hos tile they might have been to low postage rates, ihus to violate the spirit of the act of Congress or thf in tentions of Congress itself. We therefore respect fully call ihe attention of the Postmaster General, Cave Johnson, lo this violation of the law by the Postmaster of New York The evidence of thix violation is contained in the affidavits sworn to and now in the possession of the !>epartment. r>r r I'*. ? The Wave has taken the place i i . i ill .i en ilir imiii toil" Fort ^li?' i" a yood U*i I A Daniel com* to Jpdomsnt. ? We have been much amused by an article in the Tribune of yester day on the subject of Texas annexation. It is as ' flatulent and lachrymose as the iucubrations of that angular print usually are on the foreign policy o! this country. It has superadded an amount ot imper tinence and absurdity which it would be difficult to I find in the same space anywhere out in the columns of that organ of Fourierism and lolly. The Tribune, whilst it denounces with all the uri latent malignity of its nature, our reiterated expres sions of the popular impulses in favor ot annexation and the ultimate subjugation of this vast division of the earth to Anglo Saxon civilization and free gov ernment, repreaenta us as a journalist essentially "lo cofoco in morals as well as finance and political economy." Well, we must confess that our morals are not of the school of the Tribune. We frankly admit that we are not at all in favor of that syjtem of moraJity which regards Jesus Christ, the Re deemer of men, as a mere man ot respectable ge nius and talent, and quite on a par with Fourier. We are not by any means disciples of that system ot social philosophy which would overturn all the present institutions of society, and substitute a free and easy code of morality, in accordance with whose literal terms every man and woman might do exactly what seemed right in his or her own eyes. As to our financial doctrines, we dont care a but ton whether they are called locofoco or not. We know that they are sound and just. We know that the principles of tinance which we have advocated un ceasingly and consistently since the first establish ment of ourjournal, are such as are calculated to promote the prosiierity of the country, and we have the satisfaction of seeing them grow every day in popular favor. They are the principles of integrity and common sense as contra-distinguished to the legalised system of robbery and plunder followed by the banks. Our political economy is of the same school. It may be called locofoco. Very well. We care not a straw what designation is given it. We have not adopted it unreflectingly. We have taken the trouble ? deemed so unnecessary by the Tribune ? ot studying the subject, and have mutually formed opinions to which we seek to give universal curren cy. These opinions are well enough known. We ire in favor of that system of government which se cures the greatest amount of good to the greatest number. We are in fact the earnest and faithful advocates of that excellent system of government and law under which this republic is now moving steadfastly in its career of prosperity and glory, and if we cannot join in the lackadaisical lamentations of the Tribune, as it alleges, over the decline and decay of all that is fair and lovely, and of good report in the community, we are quite willing to submit to any abuse which it may |>our forth against us. Another Letter from Mr. Clay. ? The pen of Harry of the West has again been called into requi sition. We have another letter from Mr. Clay. It is very interesting. Here it is: ? I.KTTEK FROM MR. CLAV. Ashland, \!6th June, 1845. Gentli kn? I should be very hf>ppy to be able to ac cept you. inritatiou. and to join my fellow citizens of Philadelphia, in celebrating the Approaching national .inniversary. I am sure that my visit, like every previ ous one that I ever made to Philadelphia, would be at tended with the greatest pleasure and satisfaction. And [ should be glad of an opportunity to express to my nu merous friends in that city, my grateful sense of the many acts of friendship which 1 have experienced at their hands, and of the obligations under which they have placed me. But the distance of my residence, and other obstacles, prevent my attendance at the proposed celebration. I must content myself, therefore, with expressing the hope that it may pass ofl in the most agreeable manner, con firming and invigorating all who unite in it, in devotion to the principles established by the great event intended to be commemorated. I olier to you, gentlemen, the respectful salutation of an old and faithful friend. H. Cur. Messrs. John Swift, John Scholeiield, i and John T. Mauli, he. We particularly admire the simplicity, naivetf, eloquence and unatlected feeling of this brief epis tle. The people of Philadelphia, it appears, desired the presence of Mr. Clay 011 the Fourth. Alas! the great man csuld not come. Admire the touching emphasis and feeling with which he apologises for his absence ! How glad he would be ? what infinite pleasure it would give hint to meet his Philadelphia friends on the Fourth : but alas! the distance is so Treat! The "distance" ? the "distance" ? the dis tance from Ashland prevents him ! How unfor tunate ! What a sad commentary on the memo rable line of the poet ? " 'Tis distance lends enchantment to the view !" Operation oe the .new Postage Law. ? We have obtained at the Post Office the number of letters that have been mailed in this city to the following points, since the new law went into operation. Ncmher 0? LETTERS MilUP. To.

It was thought that the letters mailed then wou'd out number those mailed on any other day. Fashionable Travellers to Eeglamd ? A num ber of very fashionable and illustrious personages have recently gone to England. Amongst them is Mr. Willis, who is kindly going to give us his se cond impressions of travel. The Chevalier Wikotf has also gone ? and so also M. Galliardet, the editor of the French paper, Madame Restell and the Prince de Solms. The arrival of all these distinguished personages in Kurojie, will, doubtless, create a pro. digious sensation in the Tuilleries, Buckingham Falace, St. Petersburgh, Berlin, Baden-Baden, and all the fashionable resorts of the old world. Fcrther kro.m Brazil. ? We have received ou files of the Mario do Commercio up to the 2Kth of May last. They contain, however, no news of any importance. The provinces continued in the most j?ertect tran quillity . Th? 24th being the anniversary of the birth day of Queen Victoria, all the men-of-war in the harbor, both British, Brazilian and others, fired a general salute, which was answered by the batteries of the forts. The General Assembly passed the following reso lution on the 23d. The government is authorised to grant letters of naturalization and citizenship of Brazil to the (Germans of the colony of .San Leopold, in the province of San Pedro, who had beenengaged officially in Europe for the pursue of settling this colony. i State ok Things at Bcenos Ayris. ? We have I the Britiih Packrt of the 3d of May. It apjx-ars by thai i>a|>er thai the British government have deter mined to settle the affairs in the Rio Plata. To be gin, Com. Purvis has been recalled, and Rear Admi ral Ingletord appointed to the command of the squad ron. The Devastation ok Quebec.?' The two fires in Quebec? one on the 28th of May and the other on the 28th of June ? have almost swept that city from the face of the earth. In the two fires, at the least, 3,000 houses were consumed, and 20,000 person* rendered houseless. In the last conflagration 1302 houses weie burnt and 13 blown up. It is not a little singular, and saddening too, that the i<ortion'of the city burnt in the last terrible fire was the asylum of the unfortunate people who were made houseless by the first great fire.

Th?re was a very -troBi.' gathering yesterday on the above track although the thermometer stood just on the verge oi ninety degrees in the shade. There could not be fewer than five thousand persons present, although not more than a fourth paid, the others having broken in, to the great annoyance of those on the rlub stand. Ginger beer, lemonade, and pop> together .with other matters still more potent, were in great requisition. Old Raney's porter went otf' with the greatest gout, without cessation, and was : highly extolled. } The betting previous to the foot race was ulmos, every where. It was even on Jackson against any other ; afterwards, 15 to 10 was laid out upon him 10 some extent ; 100 to 40 against Barlow ; 100 to 90 1 against the Indian ; one or two hundred dollars ! were laid out at evens, that Barlow would not be either tirst or second ; 100 to 40 against Desmond : 25 to 15 on Fowl against Desmond ; Jackson and Desm< nd against the field. It was near upon half-past four o'clock, when the men made their appearance. The following was the race and the entries : A footrace of live inilei. for a purse of $400 ?$76 to tha second belt, and $'ii to the third. i 1. William Barlow. I 7. William Fowl, ?J William Jackson, | 8. N. M Hall, 3. Igrace Katanrhiatc, the i 9. Welch Bantum, lrtiquoii Indian, I 10. Long Mike, ' 4. C. Desmond, II. Kdward t'henny, i 4. Ambrose Jackson, I 13. E. Kennedy. i #. Peter Hutcherson. Ambrose Jackson, N. M. Hall, Welch Bantum, Long i Mike, und Edward Chenny, did not show. The men having been formed in a line, the condi I tions of the race having being made known to them, j the word was given, and they went forth in good style, Jackson taking the lead, the others well together ; the Indian at the tail end, apparently with the intention of waiting upon those immediately in front. They kept thus to the quarter i>ost. which was done in 1:8: the I>er evidently increasing the space between himself and followers. They kept much in this i>osition to the half mile, which was reached in 2:27, the Deer some eight or ten yards in | front. They reached the ludees* stand much the same , way, Jackson followed by Barlow about four yards j behind with whom was Desmond ; butjust as Barlow came to this spot a stupid lellow ran against him, and was the means of Desmond taking his position. These two were followed, at some twenty or thirty vardsdistance by the Indian, Fowle, Hutcherson, and Kennedy ; the latter had the good sense to give up the contest ut this point, and withdrew. This mile was done in 4m. 55s. For the second mile, at the halfmile pole, the Deer appeared to be near the eighth of a mile in front, and came home much in the same position, follow ed by Desmond ; the Indian about six yards be hind, evidently laboring hard; Fowle and Hutcherson about as far behind them again. Barlow, shortly after passing the half mile, struck his colors and walked home. Time, 5m. 15s. Third mile, they kept as before tD the half mile, where the Indian gave up the contest. Coming down the straight side, Jackson appeared to be near upon, a quarter of a mile in front, and reached the judges stand thus, followed by Desmond and Fowle, Hutcherson we lost sight of. Time, 5m. 37s. The Indian was obliged to be supported home by some of his friends. The lourth mile the Deer canie in just as he pleased ; followed bv Desmond, much in the same position as before : Fowle about six yards behind iiim ; Hutcherson about half u mile behind. Time, ">m. 46s. Fifth mile, Jackson at the quarter taking it easy, walking to rest himself, showing his capabilities in perfection, first running, then walking. He is one of the most perfect flat-footed walkers ever seen, and at running, with such a spring and stride as al most to be astonishing : a yard and a half is nothing to kim. At the i pole he took it easy, some said he was fatigued, and having the lead, he wished to re cruit himself ; he shortly afterwards went forth again at a great rate? looked round him and took it easy. Finding the others draw on him, he went forth and increased the space between him and his opponents; and at the drawgate took it leisurely, whether from fatigue or what not, there was no telling. lie here made a rush and came in about a quarter of a mile in front, in tim. (is; Desmond, 2d, 7:9; Fowle 3d, in 7:48 ; Hutcherson hall a mile be hind. It may be seen that Jackson won the race in 27:39; Desmond second, in 2*42; Fowle third, in 29:21 ? The tirst winning the purse of #100: the second #75, the third $>"25. There was considerable complaint on the part of the backers of Barlow at the conclusion, and some ugly statements made as to a sell, tee., but losers must have always some excuse for their defeat. The fact is that Barlow is no five mile man ? his years will not warrant it. He is a trump at the bottom, ind in time, with proper care and attenkofi, may do all that his friends may require of him. As to the winner, tacts must speak for themselves. The ten mile race on Wednesday will test his |>owers ; it will be between him and Gildersleeve, and " When Greek meets UreeU, Then cornea the tug of war." It was near upon six o'clock when the next piece of s|>ort was in readiness. A Hurdle Race for a punc of $40O, $100 to the second horse : third hone to receive back entrance, if more than tnree horses start, for which were the foflowing en tries : ? Mr. C. Durhesny, of Montreal, enters b. p. Hops. A. Conover enters his horse. Oscar Sweatland, late from Kort Gibson, enters ch. g. Snip. They were placed as above, each was obliged to carry 168 lbs. Mr. J. Mason rode Mr. Conover's horse, in a red and black jacket and cap. Mr. Sweatland, Snip, in a scarlet jacket and black can. Mr. Duchesney, in a light blue and butt' jacket and white cap. Mason had to carry upwards of30lbs. extra weight; Mr. Sweatland some six or eight; Mr. Duchesney was almost full weight without trappings. The hurdles were of the strongest and novel con struction, 3 feet 9 inches high, and were placed, the tirst at the draw-gate coming in ; the second a littU below the judge's stand ; the third near the quarter pole ? thus giving each horse four hurdles to leap in the mile and a quarter, having to take the tirst hur dle twice. After some little delay, the word was given, and Hops took the lead, clearing his tirst hurdle in gal lant style, followed by Snip in equal figure, not two lengths apart. He was immediately followed by Conover's horse, but the rider appeared to pull him in just as he reached the hurdle. The con sequence was that the horse struck the hur dle on his fore knees, and toppled over with rider undermost, rolling oyer him. He was taken up in sensible, terribly bruised. Some two or three medi cal gentlemen on the ground immediately came to his assistance, among whom was Dr. Dixon, well known in the sporting circle ; the unfortunate man was bled, and every uiing done for him that cir camateMW would permit. After some time he re covered his sensibility, and was conveyed to the ludge's stand, where he received all other attention that was available. In the meanwhile Hops took the second and third hurdle in most gallant style, closely followed by Snip in the same manner, but Ifop9 led the way almost a distance in front, clear ing all his hurdles in most beautiful style in 3:1. For the second heat, after some fallacious attempts of a second rider for Conover's horse, who bolted at the commencement, they went forth Mops and Snip, well together, not a length apart; each took the two first hurdles in beautiful style, and round the bottom they were breast and breast, but Hops took ihe third hurdle clear; not so Snip, he faltered and threw his rider over his shoulders, and went forth 'done. Sweatland was not long in gathering him self up, bridle in hand, and overtook him at about the half mile pole, mounted, and went forth in gal lant style. Now Hop* took it easy, his only oppo nent was some half a mile behind; ne trotted round the top and down the straight side until within a few yards of the last hurdle and cleared it as usual; *ome time after Snip came up, but shied at the rail and was inclined to bolt, but the tact of his ridvr nade him take it at the second attempt, and he came :n second in the second mile. This heat was done in 4:29 At a late hour last evening, we regret to hear that M. .1. Mason, j the rider of Mr. Conover's horse, was much more seriously injured than was anticipated ; he is said to have one of his arms broken, a rjh or two, and other external and internal injuries, which rendered him in a very precarious state. VVe had other remarks to make on this race, the course, tec., which time and space prevents us at present. Trottim. awij Pacing Match, o\er rut Harlem Covrsk ? A very interesting |>acing match comes off this Hf'ternoon, over the above track, between three of the horses which made such wonderful time Inst Friday. This is to be succeeded by a trotting match for $*350, which promises to be of equal in terest. Brighton Pavii.uo*. ? This elegant and commo dious house continues to sustain its high reputation nder the judicious management of its gentlemanly owner and proprietor, Mr. Blancard Its close prox imity to the city, the pure and wholesome air, the surrounding scenery, tec., give it great advantages is a summer n-sort, and no place can be found bet ter suited to please the man of leisure or business. A splendid ball was given by the proprietor on the morning of the Ith, complimeutaiy to the ladies of lUighton. It was graced with the wealth, beauty, anrt fashion of this city, and closed at a late hour with ii sumptuous entertainment. Th?? arrangement i|i , , n ;!iimi' w.ik characterized with liberality and 4<>od Uislt', <tiid was alike creditable to the worthy proprietor ThrttrlMdi. Tin: Castle Garden. ?This place of amusement was well attended last evening ; indeed, it is about the only place in the city where entertainment can be enjoyed with coolness and pleasure. The over ture ol "La lille du Regiment," was greatly applaud ed, as was Mr. Denmnon's national air, "Patriots liejoice. Mr. C. T. Parsloe's Queer Move, created considerable laughter. The "Soldier's Waltz was much admired and applauded. M'dlle. P. Desjardins, in the Mazourka, was justly admired, and elicited unbounded applause. The Carnival of Venice went ort' with the greatest eciat ; Herr Cline's wonderful lierfonnances alone, are worthy of the terms of ad rat ?siaa. Niiilo's Garden. ? Strangers to the city are to be seen nightly in crowds at this fashionable and ele gant place ol amusement. The performances for this evening are of die first order. The beautiful piece of the "Seven Castles of the Passions," with the excellent singing and acting of Misses Taylor, Matthews, and Messrs. T. Placide and Nickenson, and the dancing ol the graceful Partington and Ce leste, will attract aiiother jam to-night. The Acro bat Family arc as popular as ever, and their great talent as generally acknowledged as that of the Ra vel Family. Mrs. Mowatt, the authoress of Fashion," who cre ated so great a sensation in our city and Philadel phia, has, we understand, entered into arrangements with the proprietor of Miblo's Saloon for a limited number of nights, commencing on Monday next. The engagement is sure to be a brilliant one for all parties. Mr. Crisp is ulso engaged ; and we arc as sured, from the high character of the management, her pieces will be uHmirably cast and well put on the stage, Afi airs in Canada. ? Livingston & Co., the en terprizing express forwarders, have sent to us the following intelligence: ? Monxrkal, C. K? July dth, 1846. ? The second dread ful tire at Quebec, is the only thing spoken about here at present. There are strong reasons to believe that it was caused by incendiaries, and the authorities are ac tively engaged in sifting the matter to the bottom. The destruction of that portion of Quebec had been prophesied for some time by an insane person, who is now in custody. No other arrest has yet neen made. Great numbers of those burnt out at Quebec have come up to Montreal in search of employment. The insurance offices will lose by this last fire 380,000 dollars, of which one office alone (the Canada) loses $l(X).000 ; this is in addition to a loss by the same office at the former fire of $'200 000. The Government is doing everything in its power to relieve the sufferers ; $-20,000 are to be advanced imme diately lor present exigencies, and a loan will be forth with registered in Kngland, on the security of the pro vince, for $400,000, which will be lent to the owners of property in the burut district at a rate of interest just sufficient to prevent ultimate loss to the province. The Hon. w. Draper and D. B. I'apineau left here last night for New Brunswick; their instructions are to make every effort to set at rest the disputed boundary line. The flour market has exhibited considerable activity during the past week, and several extensive sales have taken place at 24s. 3d. to 34s. and 9d for fine and '25s. 3d. for extra do. Yesterday's prices were '24s. 6d. to 24s. 7Jd. for good brands. Ashes are not much in demand. Pots are quoted at '23s.

Freights are slack, and eight or nine additional ves sels have arrived within the last four days. The rates are as before. flie new steamer Quebec, the handsomest and most powerful steamer ever on the St. Lawrence, made a se cond trial trip yesterday afternoon, and gave great satis faction. It is expected she will distance all competitors. She makes a'trip to Queaec this evening in opposition to the Sydenham, on an excursion to see the ruins of the late fire. A very elegantly built Wesleyan church was opened for diviine worship on Sunday last, at Toronto ; the con gregation numbered 1 .">00. The Rev. Mr. Herschell (converted Jew) preaches to-morrow at the American Presbyterian church. The meeting of the Congrega tional Union takes place in this city on Tuesday nrxt. ~ Fourth of July Accideht. ? We received the following by the mail yesterday. We give it pre cisely as it came to ns. From the Ithaca Journal, July 4. Mome Loss ok Like! ? IIoiirihle Calamity ! ? Afo i iieh Fatal Fsri.osioN? It is again our melancholy du ty to record another fatal explosion of a cannon, and the death of three of our most valued citizens. About 10 o'clock this morning, the cannon was drawn to the brow of the hill, east of the village, to be fired during the marching of the procession to the place ofhearing the ora tion Gen. Boyd, an active young officer, who was one of his assistants, was despatched T>y the marshal to exe cute an order to the gunners, and seeing they were about to fire, and being mounted on one of iVfr. Andrus's spiri ted young animals, dismounted, and was standing lean ing with his right arm upon the horse's shoulder, with hi* rhapeau in his left hand, looking calmly on the scene, his horse being held at the bit by Mr. S. Benjamin, sad dler ; there was some little delay in the firing, owing to some difficulty with the match, and all eyes were turn ed to the handsome and noble figure of the young gen eral, when a tremendous explosion was heard, and the promising officer was launched into eternity, ia the prime and vigor of manhood, and his body was stretch ed, horribly mangled, across the body of his fallen steed which had been stunned by a fragment of the gun. A piece weighing about 30 pounds struck the general in the left breast, and caused instant death '. Mr. Benja min escaped with a severe contusion in the abdomen. In another direction stood a collection of men, through the midst of whom another fragment sped, charged with death, and solected as its victims two valuable citizens. Professor S. Quimhy, and John Nix, Ksq. Mr. N. was killed almost instantly, being struck in the groin, the piece tearing the parts in that region, and laying his bowels entirely open. Professor <i. was taken to the house of Mr.'.Devanport, when he tainted. He expired in great agony about five P.M. This sad event has cast a gloom over our village, and the rejoicings of the day greatly checked by the occurrence of this unexpected catastrophe. The gunners, and those spectators near the piece, were uninjured. V piece of the gun was thrown to a great distance, and pierced the roof of the Ithaca Falls woollen factory, slightly grazing the steeple of the African church in its course. Another passed through the bee house of Hon. F.. Mack, demo lishing several hives. The accident is attributed to carelessness in overloading the piece. Fourth of July Accidents. ? A man named Grimes, while assisting to fire a national salule in honor of the Fourth of July, at the Canal wharf, below the Navy Yard, had one of his arms shattered by the pre mature discharge of the piece. On Thursday evening, while some men were firing a salute in honor of the approaching anniversary of Ame rican independence, at Norristown, the cannon burst, and a young man named Robert Tarrence had one of his hands torn of)'. At Georgetown, D. C., a man had his arms blown off on the 4th. ? Phil. Inq , July 7. Movements of Traveller*. Tke following constituted the principal arrivals yester day? at the XMcsris ? \V. T.

Robert Morris, alias Southmayed, who was arrested by officer Stephens about two months ?ince in Baltimore, for stealing a horse and wagon, va lued at $200, from T. Townsend, and who was commit ted lor trial, during Sunday night took the iron window frame out of his window, by means of a chisel which had been secretly furnished him. and crawled through a hole tf] inches wide and 2 feet long, lowering himself into the prison yard by means of blankets torn into strips and tied together. A man by the name of Chadwick was confined in the same cell with him, and probably rendered him some assistance. When Southmayed got into the yard he made his way to the room of the Court of Sessions, and secreted himselfin the gallery, where he was found yesterday morning by the keoper. ? Inother ? Youn^ llodgkins, charged with the murder of Jesse Lee Burtis, and confined in the third cell from Southmayed, was also discovered, about 8 o'clock in the morning, making preparations for hfe es ape in a similar manner. The plastering around the casement had heeu teinoved and the frame loosened ; the holes, however, were nicely covered with paper which had been white washed, and which could hardly be distinguished from the wall itself. This had probably engaged his attention for tevr ral days. It it astonishing that escapes from this prison are not more frequent. The building cost up wind* of $300,000, and is entirely unfit for the purpose tor which it was erected. The construction of the cells and the different rooms for confinement, call for the care ful investigation of the Common Council.

Zahriskie. Hi* Honor Ji'Dnr Edmonds briefly addressed them. and hogged to call their attention to the state of the calen | <lar. There were six cas-'s of a capital character, as far as hia honor had an opportunity of ascertaining, the keeper of the city prison not having given in hia return according to law, stating the amount of priioners in cus tody. Of these six casea four were for arion, and two for inurdor. His Honor next briefly adverted to the re prehensible conduct of two of tbe city watch, who, in August, 1844, it will be remembered, on the trial of John M. Jonea, for the murder of William Livingston, two of the guardians of the night, testified that on the morning of the murder, between 1 and 2 o'clock, the prisoner came to them at the watch house, corner of Prince and Woos ter streets, complained of having been robbed on the highway by some men, one of whom he had itabbed, and thought he nad killed him, and yet the witnesses t.*?ok no notice of the complaint. Further, the murderer stated to them hia name, place of residence, occupation, be., j'?' when a reward waa offered for the diseovery of the as sassin, the watchmeu gave no information to officers, or endoavored to secure nis arrest. His Honor committed strongly on these facts, and presented the conduct of the delinquent public servants to the jury for their investi gation, and such action us in the case shall by them be considered requisite. The churge being concluded, the jury retired to the chamber of the Board of Aldermen to deliberate, and it is to be hoped will present those negli gent watchmen, who have so disgracefully neglected their duty. Leonard R. Hodgkins and Daniel Livingston were then arraigned, charged with the wilful murder of Jesse Lee Burtis, on the 'Wth February last. The suspicion upon which the prisoners were arrested, wero that they liad murdered Burtis while the three were sailing together in the East River, and threw his body overboard. Messrs. James T. Brady and Thomas Feeks appeared as counsel for the prisoners, who are jointly indicted, and M. C. Patterson appeared for the people. Wednes day was set down for the trial. The accused are both young men, apparently not overniueteen years of age, and while in court manifested a great degree ot sunt; J'roid and indifference. No other business being ready, the Oyer and Termi ner was adjourned to Tuesduy morning Circuit Court. Belore Judge Edmonds. July 7 ? Jl. Poster Son ra Jackson Marine Insurance Co. ? This action was brought on a policy of insurance for $10,000, effected by the plaintifl's on the ship "A/.elia," in Oct. 1843, at ana from "Trieste" to New York. It ap pears that the vessel was built in 1834 or J8j.'i,' was used as a New Orleaus packet for several years, and subse quently for various shorter voyages. In 1841, the vessel was fitted out for a long voyage, and started from thi* port for "Richmond," from which pluce she proceeded to Rio Janeiro," thence to "Sumatra," and from the lat ter place to "Trieste," a port in the " Mediterranean. Having taken in a part of her cargo at "Trieste," tho nalance not having arrived at the port of embarkation, she started on her voyage to New York. but was obliged to put back to her anchorage before she had got fairly to sea, in consequence of strong and contrary winds. By this time the balance of the enrgn which she had agreed to take, having arrived at "Trieste, '' it was shipped and the vessel proceeded on her vovogc on the ?J3d of October, being, as is alleged, in good condition and sea worthy. On the 23d of November, after beating about in a succession of heavy weather, the "Azella" was compelled to put in at "Gioraltar" for relief, leaking so badly that it was necessary to keep the pump at work continually. The Captain applied to the Consul at that place, as the agent of the underwriters, and the latter or dered a survey, and appointed surveyors. The vessel was hove down, when it was found that her seams wero strained open, and the bottom near the keel much injur od. The surveyors after a minute examination estimated the cost of repairing the vessel at that place at $10000, which estimate the Captain considered would fall short of the actual exjease, to the amount of $6000. The latter under the advice of the consul, abandoned the vessel; she sold at uuction, and brought, after paying all ex penses, much less than $1000. The plaintiffs now seek to recover full amount of the policy. The defence, al though not yet opened, is said to be based on the ground that the vessel was old, and not sea worthy, or able to bear ordinary weather. To this the defendants reply that defendants were aware of the risk, and charged a premium accordingly. The cause is still on. Superior Court. Before a full Bench. Jui.r 7. ? Decisions. ? Rebecca Ar.
