Hi 'I i ? ? NEW YORK HERALD Wow York, Friday, July 11, IMS. Oluit rated Wttkly Hrralil. Th? fVttUy Herald will be ready tor deli very at 8 o'clock to-morrow morning. It will be enriched b> iwo ?U(?erb engravings? one veprese?ting a scene hi the Irish Emigrant Society's Office in Ann street, und the wthar a view of the extensive buildings o! the Institution for the Blind, in 'his city. The lliuiioivd Settle im nt of the Oregon (lurallou. The Union newspa|*r refers to the statement of our Washington correspondent relative to the preva lence of the rumor that Mr. Buchanan, on the part of this government, and Mr. Pakenham on thM of Great Britain, had settled upon the forty-ninth degree of north latitude as the highest point of the northern boundary of the territory of the L nited States west of the Kocky Mountistoe, und the ?' orgau" asserts in lis usual dogmatic way-" we undertake to affirm that no such arrangement has been effected/' Now, thin may be all very well as corrective of the jierhaps too settled affirmation of our correspondent. However, he only stated what was prevalent rumor in circles sttpi>o--ed lo be well informed, ttnd after all the statement of the Union does not absolutely contradict his assertion, or meet the point at issue. Does the Union mean to say that no such plan of compromise has been the subject of negotiation be tween Mr. Buchanan and Mr. Pakenham 1 No, it j does not. In the very terms of its statement affect- i tng to contradict that of our corres|?oiident, there is | a vagueness which strengthens and establishes, not dissipates and scatters to the winds the rumors rife in Washington on the subject of the settlement of the ] Oregon question, and what it seems the Unioti now | deems it necessary to contradict. The truih is we are quite persuaded that some plan of compromise has been under discussion. We did not assert that j it had been agreed upon. We only gave additional publicity to what was talked of in all the political circles at Washington. And the matter remains just precisely where it was. The paragraph in the Union has left speculation and sunn ise the same freedom of action, and has cast no doubt on the probability of the opinion so generally formed. We only repeat here what we have so often men tioned, this Oregon question cannot be settled on any terms compromising the claims of the United States in any degree. Mr. Polks stands committed j to the highest ground on this point. We do not see how he can retreat from it. At all events the great popular masses will not retreat. Every inch of Ore- \ gon is to be possessed and embraced wiiliin the in fluence of the institutions and laws of this great re public. In the vast and fertile regions of the West- j em States, a new power has of late years grown up ; in this country. There all the political strength and , majesty of the republic appear to be gathering. No! administration? no set of 'men enn successfully en- j ter into the field of struggle against the impulses and j will of the western people. On this Oregon question | what those impulses and what that will are, is well 1 enough known. Wc have not, then, the least up prehension with regard to the final settlement of this controverted question. The honor and dignity of the ; republic will be maintained and our just claims fully ! established. Negro Insurrection in Maryland.? This move- ; ment of the negroes in Maryland, according to all accounts from Washington, is quite alarming. No thing like it 1ms taken place since the time of the ! gteat Southampton insurrection or massacre pro duced by the agitation of the abolitionists through ! the northern presses. No doubt this attempt of the ! negroes in Maryland has been produced by the same : influences? the recent agitation of the slavery ques- 1 tion, both north and south, and various movements of the abolitionists in the free States. And the worst of it is. that we can hardly hoi>e that the mis chief will stop here. There is every reason to be lieve that some still more desperate and bloody movement will take i>lace ere long. The collection ' of an hundred negroes, and the march uj>on the j State of Pennsylvania, w ould seem to indicate that j a new idea has seized the minds of these creatures. I What is there to prevent the organization of large bands of negroes in all the States adjacent to free States, and a universal system of insurrection a nd rebellion, and all produced b^ the agitation of the rabid politicians and frantic fanatics who are mar shalled under the banner of abolitionism? The Diplomatic History of Texas Annexa- ] tion. ? We give on the first page of our paper this j morning, the interesiing and important correspond ence which took place between Mr. Donelson, the '"nited States Charge d'Aflmres in Texas, and Mr. Mien, the Attorney General of that State, and who was charged with the management of the affaire of he Department of State during the progress of these negotiations. This correspondence constitutes a valuable and instructive portion of the history of this , great measure, and in presenting it to our readers, I we believe they will regard us as rendering them an acceptable service. The terms offered by the United States are, it will be seen, characterized by great liberality ; and the objections, inquiries and demands of Mr. Allen are met in a spirit of great explicitness and candor. The chief point insisted upon by Mr. Allen, on the part of Texas, appears to have been the formal stipula tion that the expenses incurred by Texas in execu ting her portion of the conditions of annexation would be shared by the United States. All these nutters, however, will be settled by our Congress ji a satisfactory manner, and on the same principles a? in the case of the territorial government*. Los? Island Railroad.? A lurther extension of accommodation in connection with this Railroad, his just taken place. A day line starts every Mon day, Wednesday and Friday, for Newport, from the Brooklyn depot, at o'clock, A M. A steamboat has been put on between Green|>ort nnd the above places, by which passengers nnd freight of all kinds will be conveyed with great expedition *nd at low rates. Thiu promises to be a good regu lation, and is already proving a convenience to hun dreds of passengers daily, particularly to those poing to Newport lor the warm season. Mr. Grekn amd Sionor Atocha .? In reply to Sijfnor Atocha's last letter, from which a short quo tation was msde in yesterdays'* paper, Mr. Green lias published another letter. The story of the Little French Milliner, nnd the charge of smuggling goods are indignsntly denied by Mr. Green, and characterised by htm as a specimen of blackguard ism and falsehood, for which no other ground ex ists than his once importing some segars from Ha vana into Mexico, for his own use, agreeably to the cestom of the diplomatic corps, and not objected to by the Mexican government. Military Court Martial. ? A Court Martial was convened last Monday, the 7th mstsnt, on Gover* | nor's Island, for the tnal of Captain McKenzte. ? Here are tha names of the officers belonging to it : Cel. J B. Cnuta, President , Lt Col. B. K. Pierce ; Lt Col N. 8 Clark* , Major J. Ewtng ; Major S. Ringgold , Captain C S. Merchant , Captain A. B. Eaton. Captain W C. Da Had. Prosecutor. The object of th^ Court Martial being merely to ?nqutre into a brearh of discipline only, an account of the proceedings would prove too uninteresting to our ireaders ; moreover, several of the members composing it have expressed a desire that it should not be made public until the trial is over Trinity Ciiirch, Broadway.? The steeple of the above spacious edifice is now surmounted with the cross. The scaffolding is to be taken down im mediately, and till other necessary arrangements made for opening this house of worshi<1 for divine service. Florida Llictioi*.? On the 1st instant, David Levy and J. D Westcott, both democrats, were alerted to the lT. S. Senate from Florida Jos M. Hernandez and fackaon Motion were the whig can didnteu Florida as n State is uow complete The " C'ot Rrtt" a.xd tue MysTOT of Imqctty. | ? Dr. Btcon, the writer ol the article entitled the "Mystery of Iniquity," which from estrinsidcircuni stances has attained souie notoriety, came out in yesterday's Tribune with a very long and bitter re ply to the Couritr't animadversions. Mixed up A'ilh an ample quantity of rubbish and puerility, ii toon manages to tell a krood detil of truth nbout the Courier , which must hit rather hard. Tlie gist, in deed, of hi.* labored and lengthened reminder con >isUt of his exposure of the bargain and sale process by which the aid of the Courier was secured to the particular friends uf.Vlr. Webster. Bacon evidently knows, all about this, but deals with the business in general terms. It will be very well recollected that two or three years ago the Courier occupied an attitude of most determined and unrelenting hostility to Mr. Webster. It furiously denounced his conduct 111 the negotiation of the Ashburton Treuty. In October of the full of 1*12, however, Webb made a desjterate effort to ob tain the means of regaining his share in the proprie torship of the Courier, and it was matter of notoriety at the time that the etiort was successful through the instrumentality of some wealthy men friendly to the interests of the eastern manufacturers. The Courier soon afterwards wheeled round into the most zealous advocacy of Mr. Webster. This, Webb very cooly asks us to believe, was all quite gratuitous, but Dr. Bacon shows, in a very satisfactory manner, that it was ofa very different and more characteristic na ture. There can be no doubt, indeed, that the change in the Courier was produced by a similar process as that adopted in the memorable case ol the Uuited States Bank, though we cannot say whether #52.000 was the exact sum "raised" on this occasion. It is also supposed that the recent association ot Mr. Charles King in the editorship of the Courier was a part of the arrangement. At all events, this Courier, which has occa sionally talked with such virtuous indignation about black mail, and all that, is the most mercenary? the merest hireling press that ever existed in any country. Hoboke.n. ? No place in the vicinity of this city lias undergone so many alterations and improve ments as this delightful spot during the past twelve months. The old buildings near the ferry, the hotel formerly kept by the Messrs. Perry, has been taken down, the ground levelled, new walks laid out, the roads improved, tine trees planted, and numerous splendid residences and collages erected. Among them is a most magnificent hotel, with capacious stabling, on the left hand side, near to ihe lerry. ? This will be found a great acquisition to the fanners and travellers ot Jersey and other parts visiting the city. This establishment is now taken and fitted up in a most splendid style, and w;U shortly be open ed. The roads and walks to the Klysian fields, as well as the fields themselves, have been much im proved. Here, every afternoon that the weather permits, there are various descriptions of amuse ment, calculated both to instruct and delight the aged and the juvenile. The Fakir of Angelina is a truly astonishing performer, and is daily draw ing thousands to fee him. The dancing and singing by Miss Linon? is greatly admired ; the exhibition of the Acrobat family in miniature commands the most marked attention and affords to the juveniles infinite delight. O'Connell, the celebrated tattooed dancer, also affords considerable amusement. Ad ded to ail iliese, the music of the Xew York Brass Band lends its charms. There is noplace in the vi* cinitv of any city where such an interesting, ration al and beautiful afternoon's entertainment can be enjoyed, at such a trifling expense, and to pent-tip citizens must be invaluable, and indeed is apprecia ted accordingly. The conveyance to and from this delightful spot is now everything lhat can be desi red ; in addition to the new ferry-boat recently placed on the Barclay street Ferry, another will, in a week or two be placed on the same station, and all the other boats on ihe other ferries be altered and im proved, so that \isitorsto this pleasant place may ri-ly upon every security and dispatch. For all these improvements the public are indebted to the enter prise and perseverance of the Messrs. Stevens, of Hoboken, of whom it is only justice to say that tlity I deserve all the patronage the public can bestow. Polly Bobine ? New Trial. ? We learn from a \ member of the bar, who returned from Utica in last I evening's boat, that the Superior Court yesterday de- I livered an elaborate opinion in the case of Polly Bo- I dine, directing a new trial, and deciding all the points raised by her counsel, on the last trial, in her | favor. Mr. McLank. ? In yesterday's paper, by a mis take of the proof-reader, we were made to represent Mr. McLane as having gone to Ensland. lfe does not sail from this country till the 16th instant. Six Day's Later from Canton. ? The ship Henry Pratt arrived at this port yesterday evening from Canton, but bnngs no papers or news of later d*te than those previously received. Anti-Suaveky Movement in a New Shape ? We have had various plans proposed by the uboli tion fanatics for the accomplishment of their schemes. Garrison ? Vendall Phillips ? Abby Kelly ?all of the leaders, male and female, have given us their ideas, and not un frequently have almost scratched out each other's eyes in their zealous ad vocacy of their own darling idea. But the most amusing of all these plans has just been developed to the world by the renowned Cassius M. Clay, who has lately started an anti-slavery japer in Kentucky, and was somewhat distinguished during the lute Presidential campaign as an anti-slsvery agitator, besides t>eing taken into the special care and pro tection of the greatmoral philosopher oi the Tribvnr , who teaches us that mutton and the marriage con tract are alike unworthy of civilized society, nnd who is such a devoted admirer of bran bread and wool. Well, this Cassius M. Clay come* out with his plan. It is very simple and intelligible. Ir i? the use of the " cold steel and hall, the pistol and bmvie knife, subterranean batteries, hollow squares, and battalions four deep !" He denounces the ridi culous idea of " moral power," and with the great est Mtnrhulunct , goes on to say; ? " Kxperience teaches n?. ronmon sense teaches us, virtue teaches us, justice to;- rues us, the right teaches in, instinct teaches us. rthgion teache* us, that it lotei none of its force by being hacked with " colli steel and the flushing blade," " the pistol and the Bowie knife" Without these, ' moral power" hss been and will be again ridden on a rail; it will be graced with a piumigerous coat of lass enviable colora than that of Joseph of old, and not so easily torn off" ! .Moral power stands by and sees men slain in Vlcksbtirg ? Catholic churches plundered in Massachusetts? rood citizens murdered in the defence of the laws in Philadelphia ? public meetings broken up in New Vork? the envoys of Massachusetts mobbed in the South? L'nitod States citi zens imprisoned in Charleston and New Orleans? men hung to the limbs of trees intlie Southern States for exercising the " liberty of speech" ? Lovejoy murdered in Illinois? Joe Smith assassinated in the Sanctuary of the law. She stood by in Paris, during the Krench revolution, nnd saw the peasant and the prince, mala and female?" the young, the beautiful, the brave," brought to the block. She looked coldly on whan Christ himself was crucified in Judea ! We say, then, abe la powerless of herself. Meet mobs with " moral power"' ? not so, thought " the little corporal"' of Corsica,? they ara to be met, (when will the American people leam it ?) with ?' round and grape? to be anawered by Sharpnel and Oongreve,? to be diacusaed in hollow squares, and refut ed by battalions four deep." Such is a fair specimen of the manner in which tint wretched fanatic is directing what he calls his free, dignified, and virtuous press ' Trial for Murijer.? At Troy, ?n Tuesday, was commenced the trial of Henry G. Green, for the alleged murder of his wile, Mary Ann, by poison, in February, at Berlin. The whole of that day was taken up in hearing the evidence of the medical men who ex iniinc ! the body and the contents of the stomach, in which thev tound a quantity of arsenic, sufficient to cause death. It we remember right the sudden death of he wife, with suspicions of violence, excited the more , nrprise as she was a young ami attractive woman and I he marriage had bean recent. Titr. Atlantic and Pacific a# ?Mr. Whitney. the projector of the Atlantic and Pacific Kailroact. has been at Tachadeb, from thence he pre read J to Nlilwaukie. and thence to I'rnric du Chien, to e? imiae the facilities in these parts for tba proposed ob ect It is stnted, that besides the advantages of a level ouatry to pa? over there is the convenience ot ita run nng ? long distance, nanr Wisconsin river which would urnitti greater facilities in procuring lumber, and at a .'Si cost, than is afforded tor that distance slonf any 'iite In the western country TUeatrloAl*. Park Tihutre. ? Last night was represented for the i "at time, by the Freneh company, " Don Cesar de B z?u," a piece full of thrilling incidents and great dramatic effect. The characters in that play were all admirably sustained, and much credit shoul'J be given in particular to Mad. Coeuriot, who, by her powers of acting, in the part of La Ma ritana, was by far the more commendable, as her forte was not at all suited to*uch a character, whit h deinr.nds a physiognomy capable of expressing grett and powerful emotions, entirely opposed to*thote generally axpressed by her blue eye and almost al ways smiling countenance. Notwithstanding this, Mud. Ccruriot has perfectly acted, and has been as much applauded in thin us in the other plays in whicli we had the pleasure of witnessing her perfof mane ,'s. Montassier lias shown a great deul of t dent in the character of Don Cetar, and his acting was throughout in perfect harmony with the difficult p irt which hud fallen to his share. We seldom have the good fortune of secitii; an artist enter into the spirit of his position as Moutasaier has done in the sever il plays in which we have seeu him. Mad. Kicli. r who has so much delighted us several occa sions in company with the highly spirited and talent ed comic actor Dessonville in the Monsieur et la dame?, has exhibited in the part of Lazaville a great ?leal of feeling, and we do not he.-itate in saving that we regret that her part was only a secondary one, i-s we would like to see her in one that would yive her a chance to exhibit her talent with advan tage. Jules also as Don Jose displayed a great deal of tai t,in avoiding too much animation, which would have been entirely unbecoming in a Minister of State. As to Charles II, Cceuriot, his talent has been already acknowledged by all who have seen him. and we need only say that in this part, as in all others, he has deserved the high opinion which the public of this city have bestowed upon him ? In short nothing has been left to the public to de sire in the skill .and good will of the jierformers. This '"evening the* Coni|?any will repeat " The Fa vorite ," and we do not doubt that the representation will be attended by as numerous an audience us any who have witnessed it previously, and who have spoken of it in very high terms. Castle Garden. ? Last evening this cool and re freshing retreat, as usual, was well attended, and the whole performance went off with the greatest frtat. This evening Herr Cline makes his last ajt pearance, and will go through the whole of his won derful |>erformances. Mdlle. Desjardins will make her reappearance ; and Messrs. Dennison, Wood, Parsloe, Masters W. und F. Wood, and Miss Co hen, will lend their talented assistance. The bill of fare for this evening is highly attractive, and worthy of attention. Xiblo's Garden ? Seven Castlex ntul the Aero batt. ? The Arcobats appear at Burton's theatre, Phi ladelphia, next week, consequently to-morrow night 1 terminates their present engagement here. The ' gorgeous dramai.c spectacle of the " Seven Cas tles," must also be withdrawn to make way for one of the events of the season, the appearance of the celebrated authoress of Fushion, Mrs. Mowatt, who commences 011 Monday next, in the popular domes tic play of "The Lady of Lyons" ? aided by Mr. Crisp and the strength of the excellent company. A great bill this evening. See the advertisement. Howe and Mabie's equestrian company are at Lancaster, Wisconsin. Mr. Sticknev's New Orleans equestrian company arc in .St. Lotiis. The Congo Serenaders are giving concerts in St. Louis with great success. A pi.a v, from the life of Benj. Franklin is in pre paration. it is said, for the Walnut street theatre, owing to the presumed resnmblonce of Mr. Blake to the econo mic philosopher, nn.l his ability to personate his charac ter. Palmo's EnirorE.w Opera Company who played lor a month last Spring, at the Cheatnut street theatre to crowded and delighted audionces, have returned to Phila delphia, and intend to give twelve performances at the Chestnut street theatre. On Monday evening last, at the Walnut street the atre, Philadelphia, Ale.vina Fisher was called out ?iter the performance of " Henrictte the Forsaken" an) en thusiastically applauded, it is said her delineation of the character w?3 truly a picture of the most touching and natural description. Mr. Burton has engaged the wonderful Acrobat family, who have created such a favorable sensation in this city, for the Arch street theatre, and they will short ly appear. A new drama under the title of " the Seamstress," was played on Wednesday night at the Arch, and Mr*, burke, who enacts the heroine, sings Hood's song of the Shirt. At this theatre, the boy, Harrington is re-engaged ur two nights?lii* back leap nom the third tier 10 iiie sta^e, turning a summerset a* he falls, is said to be one of the most iearful sights in the world. Madame Mabile, " Petite Augusta" as she was once called, is not a daughter of Mr. Maywood; her maiden name was Augusta Williams. Ole Bui! gave a performance on Wednesday even ing ut Stanwix Hall, Albany. He is soon expected in this city. Young Burke, the violinist, has finished his les sons with f)e Beriot, and is about to return to this country. Mr. Kodgers, an actor, well known on the Balti more and Washington circuit, is drawing houses on the strength of his resemblance to Mr. Polk. The likeness is certainly remarkable. Mr. James H. Caldwell has been employed to make the repair* and improvement* required in the Or leans theatre, New Orleans. Mr. Peter Richings has gone over to the Walnut street theatre, Philadelphia. Signor Antognini is giving concerts at Rochester with great success. Welch Jc Mann's mammoth Circus Company are announced for next week at Watertown, from whence they proceed, via Ogdensburgh and Prescott, to Mon treal and the principal towns of Canada Last. The other branch ot the company, Welch, Mann St Delavan, are on a route from Lockport to Buffalo, and will proceed to Pennsylvania. Interesting from the Sandwich Islands. ? We have received the Polynesian, published at Hono lulu, to the 2d of February. It appears that the Sandwich Islanders are rapid ly becoming civilized. The following extracts show the progress made in that quarter, in royalty and poetry [Krom Polynesian, Keb. 3.] On Tuesday morning their Majesties, the King and <4ueen, H. R Highness the Premier, H.

J j The At/ruction *, Peculiar Advantages, Society and j Amusements of Old Point. i From the portico over the dining room, and look i mg out upon the occan, with a soft sea breeze blow- j 1 Lug,nnd just refreshed by a most invigorating bath, I send you a line from this delightful i>lace, where a ! arge portion of f ishionable company are to gnther ! during this season. About two hundred and fifty or J in >re permanent guests ure here at this time ; and the increase and departure is daily; nearly four hun dred, con be accommodated. About six huadrrd ar rivals were booked yesterday, but principally for the day, it being the 4th of July ; all of whom dined in the spacious and well attended dining-room. I lind Old Point to be a far more pleasantly situa ted |.lace, and with more attractive accompani ment-, of scenery and recreative ease, than I anti cipated. The hotel is situated just above the beach, at the head of the harbor of Hampton Roads, and adjoining fortress Monroe, with a very pretty green &rove in front of the main buildings, und a large area in the rear, variegated with Howers, and a portico ruuning around the whole entrance of the wings of the houses on this side, then extending the entire length of the dining-room building ? it forms, ultogetlier, a very handsome und agreeable promenade. The amusements consist in bathing, dancing, tithing, shooting, driving, bowling, und billiards The parades at the garrison, and the evening sere nades and concerts, make a part of the routine of the day for a majority ol the company. The ball room is quite spacious aud well lighted, and the mu sic of the very best description. The fare would please the choicest epicures of the North. Every day we have tor dinner and tea, soft crabs, hog fish, turtles, oysters, and many other very choice dehe jies, and no scarcity of them. The company now i. ere, consists chielly of southern persons from the K .ver counties of Virginia and < leorgia, North Carolina, and many handsome and wealthy young ladiiM Hiiiongthem; butagoodly portion of northern guest I have taken reoms for next week. The Pre sident, Mr. Polk, Mr. Muaon, and Mr. Bancroft and families, are expected on the 15th instant. -Th ? fashionable, of New York, who are in the ha bit o! visiting Saratoga and Newport, should give this charming place a trial, without the cold re straint of Newport, the bathing here is just as good and though wanting the natural waters of Congress Spring, or the Pavilion at Saratoga, the superior tare mid fine society make Old Point more desira ble; ar least, such is my taste, who have visited all these places. I predict, in a few years, Old Point will be the fashionable rendezvous of the northern and e xtern States, as it already is of the south and middle sections. Improvements in building are to be made fro;n year to year. Ex-President Tyler and family, and Mr. Gushing, and Gen. Lamar, of Geor gia, have been among the visitors for the last fort night. Mr. Tyler is about to go to the White Sul phur Springs. As the fashionable season progresses, you shall hear from me. The waters of all ilie northern springs, Saratoga, and Bedford, and White Sulphur, are to be had here in bottles. City Intelligence. Km i. ? A Woman nearly burned to Death bv kxrui* ? ION OK SPIRIT ?A?, OH SOME SI'CH COMBU.TIBLE.-About 10 o'clock yesterday , an alarm of fire was given from No. SO Pearl street, when it was ascertained that a woman who had been in the employment of Morrell Sc Bro thors at the above warehouse, had been dread fully' burned by the explosion of spirit gas or some such comnustiblo. It appears that the above hrm emploj j several females in the preparing of patent medicines, and that this unfortunate woman was in some w ay care- | lessly handling this combustible when it exploded. One of tho proprietors had his hands very much burned try ing to save her frorrt destruction. Medical assistance was procured immediately, who, wo were informed, pro nounccd the case to be of a very serious nature, and much feared she could not long su???; ascertain tho poor creature ? name. Sc\eral tire compa nies were in attendance, but their aid w'as not required, I as no other damage worthy of note was done. Vire? Several Houses totally Consumed? Great Puvrin'. rioi or Croper rv.-l.ast night between eight and nine o'clock, a most alarming fire broke out in JOth street, between 7th and 8th avenues, by wh'chnotlcss than fourteen houses have fallen a prey- 1 he fire, it a| pears broke out in a baker's shop, which shortly alter Ivards communicated with the adjoining buildings, wErh were principally of frame work, and burned with (earful rapidity for upwards of an hour and a half. rhe number of families which have been reduced on this oc rasion will number atfbut lrom fifty to sixty, and the da "aTe ca^not bc much less than *40,000 As almost al ,i,e tiroperty of theso unfortunata creatures have been consumed. We left them lying about the streets, with whatever part of theii furniture had been saved, and we must say we never saw firemen work with more energy than on this occasion. ( ompames 14, b 8, : U, andseve al others were at work with surprising speed alter the alarm was given. Tho number ol people present was hcvond computation, more than three lourths of them being women, with children in their arms, and the pres sure was so greot, combined with the suffocating smell from combustible matter all round, that wc are restniin ed from giving any noou.^to account th.. moraln*. all ol which will appear in our evening edition. Massacre ok Horses.- Vester.lay morning, as we were wending our way towards the South Ferry, through Whitehall street, our attention was attracted at some dis- j tance by two of tlioso unfortunate animals lying within i twenty rods of each other, across the street, and on near- | er approach, lound that they some hours previously had breathed their last. On enquiry, we they belonged to some of our Broadway stage owners, aud had no doubt been driven to oeath by the cruelt) and recklessness of hard hearted men who are entrusted with the charge of this noble and useful race of an nials If ownprs of stages do not enquire into and scrutinize In clT barbarity on the part of their drivers, surely the Humane Society ought todo so on behalf of these dum > "Lais.

The Kerry Boats am. Lo?s ok Lives '?A few days ago we were called upon to record one of these acc - ?tents which occur daily at our ferry and steamboat land ings. Wc do not entertain the least doubt that, in most cases, these aie the result ot the imprudent l.aste of the s ii He re i s themselves, who, as soon as the boat has reached the pier, hasten in confusion to quit it, as it they were afraid that the boat which brought them safely ' to 1 tl e wharf, would sink or burst a boiler were the) to remain on board a few minutes longer. However painful it is, we must admit this to be generally the case, and t bo hoor?8 H0 to MCMlt a moans by which these accidents might be entirely prevented. It is true that chains are ?renerallv hung to prevent passengers from leaving the boat until sho is safely fastened to tho whart, bntthese chains are of no other use than to warn Ihem ot the dan 'er without preventing them effectually lrom rushing into it. There is only one means of protecting the lives and limbs ol such individuals, and we earnestly recommend its adoption. This would l.e to piece ,t every landing a gate of sufficient height i o prevent its being escaladod ; Ihis Kate should be strongly made, and erccted so near tho edge of the pier as not to allow any body standing outside of it and should be opened only when the boat is moored, and there can uo longer bo any danger in leaving her. We sincerely believe that should the proper authorities render it obligatory to the owners of the boats to use this precautionary measure, we would hear no more of these accidents which cost us yearly tho lives of many of our citizens. _ Brooklyn Ctiy Intelligence. h)Ax Rrowsed.?

A gentleman, a Mr Madden, came to Mr Van Clifl s as. sistaece shortly afterwards, who had his arm dreadfully cut i? the encounter.

The foreign trade of any country is generally looked upon as being an index of the prosperity of the people, and is considered evidence of the progress made in com mercial matters. The extent of the imports into any country is considered evidence of the wealth of the peo ple of that country, and the extent of the exports some oviJeucc of the resources of that country. The foreign trade of every nation comprises but a small portion of its commercial movements, but tho outlet a large exporta tions give to tho products of any country is sure to pro. duce a favorable state of trade at home. We export about one tenth part of the total agricultural products of the country, whereas we do not import a one hundredth pirt of tho amount of merchandise consumed in tho country. The foieign trade of the United States at the present time, is not so large in proportion to the population, as it was in the early years of the history of the country. The agricultural exports of the country are not so great, ill proportion to the population' as they were forty years ago.

We shall have greater con' sumeiibof our own products as our country increases in population, and every year places us in a position more independent of foreign countries than the year previous We are not only annually becoming more and more in" dependent of every other country on the face of the oarth, but other countries are becoming more dependent upon us. We have within our limits the power of regu Uting the commerce of the principal nations of tha world, and the dependence of Great Britain, France, and other countries of Europe, place upon supplies of cottou from the United States to keep their immense manufac luring interests in motion and in a healthy condi tion, is sufficiently powerful to compel them to maintain i'ence with this country at all ha/.aids aud at any other .'.acrifice. A rupture between the United States and Great Britain, would, in a commercial point of view, prove immensely advan ageous to us and ruinous te Great Britain. The millions in that country depending upon the manufacturing interests, almost in a state of rtarvation with full employment, would, if deprived of work by a suspension of intercourse with the United tates and the close of supplies of the raw material, pro duce a civil war in less than six months. National hon or aud glory cannot stand a moment while the cry of tarnishing millions is for bread and work. The govern ment of Great Britain are well aware what would be the result of the ruin of their manufacturing interest*, and this knowledge insures the permanence of peace between (lie two countries. While a war with Great Britain would produce much misery among the laboring classes of that couutry , and ruin hundreds or thousands of the manufacturers, it would have just a contrary effect on this ? ide of the Atlantic. It would establish our manufactures more firmly than all the protective tariff* ever enforced, and buildup every domestic inteie*t with the greatest rapidity. We should emerge from a war of a few year*. Inlependentofevery other nation, for all the necessaries a id seme of the luxuries f life We should hear no more of protective tariffs? the whole country would be united, and the manufactur ing and agricultural interests o i.hi Sonth would be e>)ual to the North, and there wo Oft. be a greater harmo ny between different section* of th Union thnn could b* produced by any other cause. This is the blight side of the picture, which, we have no doubt, would be fully realized ; but even this result would b* if produced by ?i war, too desrly purchased; but it ,? well enough to ' ike a bearing of eur position, and make up our minds what would probably bo the effect of any derangement in the J*aceaHe rel i!i( n? now existing? and we trust forever will t' , < .
