NEW YOltK HERALD. S?v* l'ork, Thurvtlay, July 17,1M8. The Expected Steam Ship* The Great Western and Britannia, with advices from Europe to the Oth inst., may be expected to ?inive between now and Sunday morning, One 1- ft Liverpool on the 4th, and the other on the 5th; tftsre will, therefore, be a neck and neck race over the big Atlantic course. Affnlr? 111 Washington. There are several rumors afloat in Washington relative to the Oregon question, and the resignation of Mi'. Buchanan, it is st ited that some difficulty has arisen in the Oregon negotiations, which may t-nd to the retirement of Mr. Buchanan from the Cabinet. It is also i- lid that Mr. Walker will re tire. These rumors, of course, want confirmation, j The accounts we have received are that onThurs- j day lust, the Secretary of State had an interview of several hours duration with the British Minister, Mr Pakenhttm, in the State department; und that a special meeting of the Cabinet was held next day to take the result of this interview and the Oregon question into consideration. On Saturday, the next day after the Cabinet co nieil, the rumor of the re signation ol .Mr. Buchanan begun to circulate through the circles in Washington, nnd gained much credence. These facts, in connection with the statement made a few days ago, that the 49th degree had been agreed upon by the Secretary of State and the British minister, foreshadow some thing. According to this intelligence the negociations on this vexed question are near their termination. If Mr. Buchan m has settled in his mind upon the 49th degree, and should go out of the Cabinet on that point, we nifty suppose that the President is deter mined to have the whole territory to the 54th degree, or nothing. White Slavery? Who arc to Blnuic I What is meant by saying this is a free country I What are the just grounds of exultation that a nation was born, with the birth of our indomitable young re" public, where humanity, in the world's new spring, would cast the slough that encased him forages? Not surely altogether because of the revision of the old laws, the abolition of old forms, and the repudiation of senseless distinctions. These are very proper grounds for rejoicing, fcut they are not all that exist ; there are many more, and some of them of a nature quite distinct, but equally obvions. One we propose alluding to, and that is, the tendency of the social state Hnu institutions of this young nation to amelio rate the condition, and elevate the position of the in dustrious classes. For the purpose of the enquiry, the population may be regarded as consisting^ of two great classes, or rather a principal and a subordinate class ? those w ho work, and those who do not. The relative state of these two portions of a people, pretty correctly in dicate how far the principles that govern society are salutary or the contrary. In the old time-woin king doms of Europe pretty much the same relation exists between them, throughout its whole extent; it is that of the favored to the wronged ? of the pampered to the oppressed ? of the monopolist to the despoiled. There is no health in such a system ? it ferments and fulls asunder, resolves itself into combinations that nre incompatible with its very vitality. If we comprehend the essential und leading bene fit of all reforms, including th it of the substitution of republican for monarchical governments, it is a dif fusion of freedom and protection, on equal and im partial grounds to all, without reference to any con?i d- ration, save those dictated by common sense am.! the teacliingsof conscience. Following such a guide, no difficulty will be found in discovering that the greatest number have the first claim ? that those who nnd that which are most useful, ought to be most es teemed. Wherever this ia forgotten, no matter about the false tinsel, and hollow charms novelty or custom may lend to human arrangements, they do not deserve respect, much less admiration. Are we all right here in practice 1 Are we perfectly orthodox in doctrine? If we are, the musses of the laboring classes have nothing to complain of? they ! enjoy the grade in the social scale they are entitled to. They work und are remunerated; they do so by contract with their employers, and are fully and thoroughly equal to them as one of the two parties to a bargain. But this is not the case, and there is somethiug rotten in the views prevalent on this very point Work is no' scarce: there is plenty to do for every one who teel? disposed to do it at the present mo ment: ind yet it is believed that h laborer is til" recipient, ;h<? employer the donor, of a boon in trans aciions between the two. Perhaps few will have the unblushing impudence to say so in these regions, but it is nevertheless qtitte true that he who pays money for work done, is persuaded that there is something or the other in the act which confers an obligation; some fiction, created by a false public opinion, blinds him to the simple truth that he, in doing so, is but a party to a bargain in the same ?ensr as when he purchases a box of locofoco matches. These prevalent notion? are absurd, and lliey are pernicious too. No man, nor body of men, can act wisely or well in any circumstances in which they do not take views sound and d -fensible. In Europe, this despicable abortion of pride, that makes an employer, some apstart lordling or bloat ed. parvenue think that because he has paid wages to the honest laborer, he has a lien uporj his indepen dence of action: this pernicious fallacy has been the prolific source of tyranny, usurpation, and the grinding down of the working classes. What means the "thank ye" for wages earned. What means the abject air and humble protestations of gratitude of the poor cotter who takes ten acres of land from Squire Roundbelt, but that a corrupt usage coiii|>els him to act the unmanly part of ad mitting an obligation which has no reality! Yes, fie is forced to it, and the cunning and haughty, and jmrseproud employers, snuff up the incense with complacency, and encourage an observance bo grateful to their depraved feelings. All this had but a small beginning at first. Once w as a time even in England, when the relation sub sisting between the stout jieasant and the squire, was u* nearly similar to that whicfi should exist between 1 1 an and man, as it is alleged to be now in the 'nited States. Hut the enemy sowed tares. Those who had wealth and a desire for idleness took ad vantage of circumstances, and elevated themselves at the expense of th?* honest and confiding o|>era tive. This ought to teach a lesson of vigilance to the. working man here Let him always bear in mind, that there is nothing in the set of accepting employment, that imposes upon him either obliga tion, or in giving it that merits his thanks, indeed, if auy such ingredient enters into the contrnct.the em ployer is the obliged i>arty ; the man who ought to be grateful .to him who does that which he could not do for himself. Are these truths understood and attended to gen erally in this blest and almighty country? We need not travel out of this city for a clear response in the negative . What makes the shaving shops called intelligence offices flourish, but bribes paid by those seeking employment to secure it? Why do thousands of young men ubmit to toil and drudge for fourteen hour* a day, in weather too sultry for the wild animal to leave his lair, a?d quench his thirst in the still running, but no longer cool brook 1 Why do men who ought to know and who do know what is right, submit to give 40 per cent more of their time behind the desk of the counting house, or the shop counter, than is pint and equitable ! Why do they exhaust nature with fifteen hours a day of mental and physical exer tion? Why do females toil for a livelihood in this city, submitting to the injustice of being paid in hand but half their promised pittance-~the balance remaining with those who want to trade on the i 'I ' A'l t)n- l- ?

L> ? piopiti tied by the rob ber* .inn degradation oi til* operatives, otherwise ihejr w iJl u?e the power h vicious Hate of society mi put in their hands, to oppress and injure those :liey|ilea*c to style as dependens upon their good will. Wc could write much upon this subject, nn<i '-?online ourselves to this very city. At present, we cannot dedicate more space to it, but may make it the subject ot further remarks. Police ?The oriMnization ot the Police force hns progressed much to the satisfaction of every ci tizen interested in the welfare of our community ; and, it is highly creditable to Mayor Havemeyer, the activity and perseverance with which i.e has labored during the last month, to carry out the provisions of the law, in relation to the establishment of this most valuable auxiliary to the public |K*ace and well being of society. The frequent clamors that have been raised by a factious band of {wliticiuns, calculated to mar the ell'orts of those really interested in the wel t ire of our citizens, in relation to a police force, are now, happily, set at nought, and we hail with inefla '?Ie satisfaction, th?* successful progress of the organ ization of this useful and necessary branch of the public service, under the auspicious management of the Mayor. Since the passage of the ordinance au thorizing the appointment of such a body, confidence h is been restored a good deal to our citizens ; and? we trust, we shall shoiily have to congratulate this Urge community on the establishment of a i>o!ice j force, which in point of numbers and qujlilication, j will be found sufficiently effective to guard the pub- j lie peace, and protect the lives and propeities ol our j citizens in every quarter of this |>opulous conimu- j nity. A judicious distribution of the force, through 1 the various wards and districts, will have a salutary i etrect, and keep the lawless and the ill-disposed [ under proper restrictions. The force is too small, j in comparison to our vast population, and should the i Chief of Police have occasion to demand an in crease, to strengthen <md render sufficiently etfec ive for all purposes so useful a body, we feel conf> .lent that no impediment will be thrown in the way. We have long since, and frequently advocated the appointment of this body, to guard the interests of our citizens, and should any defects occur in liie present system, now in the conrse of operation we are less disposed to cavil with them than we are desirous to suggest any improvements in the organization that we may deem necessary. We want a Police force, and hope the present expe riment, irrespective of party considerations, will be dlowed a fair trial, and will prove, what ullso much desire, perfecily successful. There are already ap pointed for the First Ward forty-nine, for the Se_ pond thirty-five, Third thirtv-one, Fourth thirty-two, Twelfth seventeen. The organization will shortly tie completed. The New York Yacht Club? Grand Regatta ?The members of this highly resectable associa tion, meet this morning at the station house, Elysian Fields. A steamboat will leave Barclay street pier at half past 8 A.M. precisely, for the use of members of the club and ladies accompanying them to see the regatta. We annex a list of the yachts that will take part in the afl'.iir. They will 6tart from the Elysian Fields, at 9 o'clock in the morning, and sail round the buoy at the South West Split, and return to a stake boat oil" the Elysian Fields. A.\? , 17 tons, .lames Rogers ; Lancet, 33 tons, Geo. Rollins ; Gimcrack, -J5 tons, J. C. Stevens ; La I 'oquille, .'7 tons, John ?'

The time given for tonnage is according to Acker's Scale (as adopted in England,) viz : forty-live sec onds per ton, for an estimated distance of forty miles. Should this distance not be accomplished by 7 o'clock, A. M , the race is to be run over again ! The steamboat is at the service of the committee ap pointed to station flag boats which the yachts will pass to starboard or larboard as they shall direct. Law Cot RTs. ? The Courts are, at present, doing but little business. There is very little doing, also, in Chambers. There are many heavy cases to come on the next term of die Circuit Court, which, du ring the recess, is to undergo a thorough change. The ventilation in all the Courts injhe City Hall is really intolerable; and the Common Pleas in particu lar was so suffocating last winter as to oblige the Judges to adjourn. The Common Council will soon take a recess ; and the Judges have a good opportu nity, at this season of the year, when business is susjiended, to procure f rom this Board the necessary repairs lor the different court-rooms. The benches ought to be removed in the Circuit (Jouit, the Com mon Pleas, and the Court of Chancery. The diffi culty in hearing in these Courts should also be an other inducement to rejiair them. The public are is interested in the proper accommodation to be had in our Courts as cither the Judges or the lawyers. We would recommend, therefore, that proper steps be taken to effect the repairs and changes we have suggested in the said courts. Horrible Affair in Brooklyn ? There is con siderable excitement prevailing in the neighborhood of Wnllabout, Brooklyn, relative to one Edward lligbec, who died about two weeks ago, of a eancer on the face, and his widow refused to let the body be seen by his relatives prior to the funeral. After ward, suspicious circumstances arising, the body w is disinterred on Friday night and found to be headless ? the widow substantially admitting that <he had sold the head to a doctor. Considerabl yitlierings have taken place around tho house for he past two ?r three days, and the females in the neighborhood are particularly loud in their denun nation of the widow. It is said that she has quitted ? he neighborhood to prevent threatened summary I iuni?hment from her neighbors. Street Talking. ? When jieople wish to tilk villi their friends whom they may meet in the street, let thein take a stand somewhere out of the way of those who are moving on. Kepeated Iv have we seen two persons meet on the trottoii at die corner of two street ami continue to block up the ,iath until it suited themselves to adjourn. Nothing is more thoughtless or ignorant than such a practice. Our side-walks nre narrow enough in most street* without additional obstacles being put to the move ments of those who have business to attend to. Naval. ? The frigate Constellation is not to be lengthened thirty feet. She is to be cut down to a corvette arid fitted with propellers. The U. S. sloops of war Saratoga and St. Mary, rnd the U.

Buxd ' Th? e*. ii mm non of the pupils belonging to this institution, | began yesterday. The exercises were conducted in a v ry appropriate manner, under the superinten dence of Mr. Chamberlain, the superintendent, in presei ce of the Hon. N. S. Benton, Secretary of this ^tate, D. D. M. Reese, several offche managers, and a few visitors. The exercises, which were to have opened at 10 o'clock, did not commence till 11. The pupils, who made a very neat and decent appearance, began the exercises of the day by reading several passage* from the Book of Proverbs, and from the Psalms, in which some of them showed great skill. The female pupils read with more ease and fluency than the boys. This we expected, for, although the great timidity of the girls interfered somewhat with their reading, yet they had a great advantage over the boys. The latter are engaged a part of the day in manual works, such as basket and mat making, weaving, <kc , which destroys, more or lees, the sen sitiveness of their lingers, and our readers are well aware that those who, unfortunately, are deprived of sight, have to use all that sensitiveness to distin guish the embossed characters in the books made for their use. The girls, on the contrary, being en gaged in works which do not aflect them so strong ly, have therefore more facility to feel the difference i!i the characters; h?*nce their greater fluency. Among those who deserve especial notice for their until ess, in this claw, we must mention Chas ( r. BuiIt, and Hudson Ayers, two young lads, be tween nine and ten years of age, who have been ibout a year, and A.Brown who has been three years in the institution. Angeline Merrell, a child about six ye irs of age, who entered last November, and (.Mine; i ue Giluier, who has been a pupil for the last three years. In order to give us an idea of the skill to which the pupils can attain in this department, Mist Cyn thia Bullock, a graduate of the institution, was intro duced, and this youni: lady went through her read ing in a very creditable manner, both to herself and to her instructors. It was an nueresiing sight to see her read with rapidity, with her lingers. They moved over the letters as quickly, and gave utter ance to the words as fluently, as Thai berg moves his fingers over the keys of a piano, and produces music. Then followed the two classes of geography, in which we find it very difficult to make any s|wciff cntion, all the pupils, with one or two exceptions, iiaving answered very readily the questions proposed to them. Here also we must suppose that timidity prevented those alluded to above from answering promptly, for we think we recognised one who had answered readily to the questions which Mr. Cham berlain made to him in our presence, when we visit ed the building in the course of last week. Afterthe examination in geography, came the class of astro nomy. The members of this class likethoseof the preceding ones, answered without hesitation to the different ouestions ; and this is the more ereditablc, as theydid not study this branches with the assistance the science of geography oflers them in the use of maps, i h?-y having learned it entirely by oral instruc tion. The voting lady who has charse of this de partment, Miss Eliza King, is herself blind, and has been a pupil of the institution. To instruct them in the principles of the science of astronomy, she had to de|>end almost on her memory alone, assisted oc casionally by Mr. Chamberlain, who read over to her any passage she wub not accurately ac quainted with. Miss King conducted the examina tion of her class, and did it in such a mannerasto satisfy all. The same can be said of the other teach ers. In the course of the examinations, the pupils were questioned also by the Hon. visitor, Dr. Reese and some of the managers on the different branches ihey had studied, and most always satisfied plainly [heir examiners. We were here obliged to leave. The examination was continued after we left, and to dny it is to be completed. It was one of the most interesting exercises we have ever attended. More of tiie Hot Weather. ? The thermome ter keeps up to a high point. At noon yesterday, it touched 94 degrees, and at 3 o'clock it was at 93 degrees. This extreme heat, lasting for so many days, has been most prostrating in its effects on man and beast. More than a dozen persons were car ried to the dead house yesterday; at least half of them are dead or will die. Most of them were sun stricken, but several were killed or seriously injured by drinking ice'water. Not an inquest, however, wrs held on any of these unfortunate persons thus killed. Is it not shameful that the Coroner is so negligent 1 This extraordinary weather has spread to all points within a circle of five or six hundred miles ot this city. [From the Albany Argui, July 15.] All the region round about, at far as heard from, hai felt the raging of the Dog star. At Rochester. during the three days ending on and in cluding Sunday, the range of the thermometor was from 91 to 06 -the latter point was reached on Sunday at 1] P. M. At Nahant, the mercury stood at 88, at 8, P. M., on Saturday. At midnight, it had fallen to 00. . At Hudson, the murcury rose to 99 at 1 o'clock on Saturday; on Sunday, it went up to 100, and at some points stood at 104. On Monday, it stood at 100, at II o'clock A. M.,when a thunder show er accompanied with hail came up. mid in hail an hour it fell to 70. [From (he Newark Adv. July 15] A terrific thunder show er passed over .Morris riains, in Morris county, yesterday afternoon, in which a man named Wm. Donald was struck and instantly killed, while returning Irom the tield where he had been ploughing corn. lie was driving his horse, which was also knocked down, but not much injured. He had an iron w rench in his hand. Mr. D. was formerly a classi cal tearher, and leaves a bereaved wife. He was between 40 and 45 years of age. [From Boston Transcript, Julv 15.] During the shower yesterday, the largo home in Green street, Newburyport, owned by Captuin Robert Jenkins, and occupied by Mrs. Chute, as a hoarding lixuse. was struck by lightning, and badly damaged. ? The front side of the lower half of the house was com pletely shivered; large pieces of boards with clapboards attached (perhaps six feet long), were thrown into the street a distance of 20 or 30 feet. No person was injur ed. The w eather-cock on the church in Pleasant street was struck, and the spindle bent nearly double. The weather jesterday, in Providenco, was excessive ly warm. In the alternoon there was a severe thunder storm. The lightning struck in several places, and some damage done, but no one was injured. A severe squall passed over this city at half past two, coming from the direction of Lowell, passing over Charlestown neck, and down the harbor. The air was lillod with a dense cloud *f dust, which obscured the vision. The rain fell copiously for an hour or more, the wind blowing violently. There were many boats and fishing parties in tho harbor at the time, but we have neard of no damage being done. To-day, in this city, the thermometer stood as follows: at sunrise. 79; at 10 A. M, H4; at 11, 86; at 1 P. M. Utf; at 3, 92. Wind light from the south. [From the Boston Traveller, July 15 ] " Ou the 12th July? jutt twenty years ago Saturday ? the thermometer at 6 in the morning was ?2, and during the day it rose to 98. The heat for many successive days was oppressive. On the 16th July, the mercury ranged variably at loo to lot. On the 2l*t and 23d, it rose to 102. Many lost their livas in conscquenco of the heat, through excessive latigue or imprudence iu di inking cold water. Twenty-live or thirty fell victims in this city alone. Two hundred deaths occured in the first week in July in New York ? 60 more than e\ er before happened iu any one week. Thirty three of these died from drink ing cold water. One young woman in Salem was so powerfully affected by the sun for a short time, that de langement ensued. A lady in New Vork was to over come by the heat that she fell in the street, and was af terwards attacked w ith fits which continued through the night. The heat was equally dettiuctive to the brute creation. A large number of horses iu various places were lost by owners of stages; arid even the fish in some of the ponds were suffocated, and died in l^rgc numbers through the interaction* of the heat. At the suggestion of the Mayor, the master workmen in this city suspended their labor from 12 to 5 o'clock, for several days. The air became so thoroughly heated as to afford no rcliel Irom the scorching rays of the tun. The almost insuf icralde heat continued through the month of July; and tho ravages ol death in consequence were melancholy, in various part* of the country. On the 21th. twenty-five inquests were held in New York over tho bodies of per son* who died suddenly from the effect* of the heat." Late From Brazil ? By the liri?

Rov>rrt la Diable could not have found a worthier tucctHor than La Juive, unless it be be Les Huguenots, which un doubtedly will be performed during this Mason, for the proverb says ? Tret faciunt collegium, and pro verbg and ladies never are mistaken. We do not intend drawing a parallel between Meytrbeer and Hal&vy, as little as between Robert and La Juive, which the Courtier dei Elate Unit calls a work "un pen moint admirable," but which we think, with all due deference, to be " beaucoup moint admirable,' and in this assertion we are sastained by the innu merable host|of_European critics, in spite of ali|the pufl criticisms of the Gazette Muticale of Paris, whose editor, Maurice Scfclesmger, has the honor | but at the same time the misfortune, of being like wise the editor of all the unsaleable operas of 1 lal? vy. La Juive undoubtedly is a most remarkable work, and with regard to the sensation it produced in Paris, it immediately ranks after Robert and the Huguenots, not because a better one could not have been written, but because a better one has not been written, and we doubt very much whether it ever would have attained so great a success, with out the dazzling and unequalled splendor of the mite en tctne, wh ch in some measure is borne out by the warm, but not very enthusiastic reception it found in Germany, and a great number of provin cial cities in France. Halevy is a[great man, a very clever contrapuntist, a famous professor oi harmony; a very scientific and careful writer; a noisy instrumentalist (this is a great merit par le feint qui court), and frequently, if not always, composes like a genius. But he is not popular; but this cannot be the fault of the public, who p -ver lack enthusiasm for the great works of Mozai t, Weber, Gluck, and Meyerbeer. The fault, therefore, must rest with the composer, as it really does. II is melodies are too studied; more the up t-hot of research thun of inspiration. Take away La J rive and L'Eclair, where do find in all his fifteen great and cotnic operas, one air (with the exception of the romance in Guido et Ginevru, and perhaps the political chsrus oi' L' Anglais Jamais rignem en France, from Charles the Sixth ? that would iiave made a lasting impression on the ear of the public. From the manner in which he developes them, one is really induced to believe that they are nu rely intended as affording an opportunity for the di-phy of a very scientific ocnest ration ? a small and common picture in a large and cosily frame. More calculated to be studied by the tyro thun to be listened to by the public, who finds thpm ennyeux in the beginning, and continues to find them so always His admirers, who are the more ardent the less numerous they prove, stick very much to his origi nality. This he certainly possesses, but not in an absolute way, for we doubt whether Halevy would

ever have written a Juive, if Robert had not pre viously existed. We do not directly ch irge him with having imitated Meyerbeer, but we find in all his works a strong inclination to produce similar, if not the same effects, by different means We find the same attempt of blending the classic with the romantic ? but with the difference, that Meyerbeer succeeded in giving it a compact unity, where, on I lie contrary with Halevy, the line of demarcation is Everywhere visible. His class. cal passages are monotonous without being romantic ? and the ro mantic are eccentric, without being classical. The reproach of eccentricity has likewise been made against Meyerbeer, but he always finds sufficient excuse in the incidents of the plot? as, for instance in Robert le Diable; but Halevy's eccentricity sud denly springs up where it is least expected, and least in its place. These remarks, which we believe to be conscien tious, apply more to the writer, in general than to La Juive, in contradiction, we confess, to tfiat other proverb, " quod convene t generi convenet speriei ." La Juive forms quite an exceptiou'to the rest ofH?16vy's works. Amongst not a little that is ponderous, we find much that is anything but enni/eux. From the care bestowed upon it, one sees that it is a pet ? the first born of the composer. The freshness of many melodies clearly shows that the composer was younger, although already ripe ? that he relied more on inspiration than on science, so preponderant in his latter ojieras. We have only to point to the pro found feeling of the beautiful stanza in the finale of the first act, Oh, ma fille cherie tfc quittt point mo ft bran. to the pathos of the nraver, " O Dieu de not pert*" to the gentilletse of the terzett " Oh f dai i* mon ?me"tothe passion of the malediction," Chretien Sacrilege," in the second act ; to the morreau d' en semble in the third ; to the whole of tlif* fourth act, in which t lie air " Rachel ' qiiand du Seigneur" de serves a particular mention, and to the funeral march of the execution in the lifthnct, toconvince the pub lic that it is a work of uncommon] merit, which is entitled to more than one hearing Of the plot we have only to sav. that it is full of dramatical, |>erhaps, a little too melo-dramntic inci dents, and that it affords as much opportunity for display to the composer, as Scribe's librettos gene rally do. We copy .1r. Rev?il's able introduce tory remarks, which materially contribute to the l>etter understanding of the whole : One of the molt celebrated trial) pleaded before the Council of Constance, in 1414, was that one of the secta ry John Hu?, confomor to tho Queen Sophia of Bavaria That heretic, pupil ofthe hvjglishmnn John VVickliff, re fused to ttclicve in the Virgin the Holy, and the Pope's power. Excommunicated by Alexander the Fifth, John litis undertook to tnke his trial before the Council, which condemned him to the faggots. The chief of the < oun cil of Constance was the Cardinal Brugni, a distinguish ed man. who, having more ambition, could have keen elected by the Conclave, in thnt moment when the l'o|>e John XXIII. and the anti-Tope, Benoit XIII. (Pe ter of Luna.) had divided all Christendom. Brog ni, whose rame was John Allarmet, belonged to .< peasant's family of the village of B'Ogni in Savoy ; he was shephenf in 1*73. when two monks met him. and being struck by his prepossessing appearance proposed to him to follow tnem to Geneva to be educated. The boy assented to the proposal, and took so much profit by his good adventure, that he so >n be came a wonderful man. When the kii.g of Naples, La dislas, took possession of Home, and < X'ircised so many cruelties, Brogni was not yet priest; be had a wife and a daughter who both disappeared during that fatal event With the preceding facts Mr Scrihe has built bis opera ol the Jewess, which is one of the most interesting lyric works overwritten by him. The princess Kudoxia and the Emperor Sigismond belong also to the history. The latter is celebrated by the furions war he declared n^ainut the Hussites, and by the title of "Light of the People," which was given to him by his subjects. Prince Leopold, (Ca;uriot,) the husband of the Princess Eudoxia, (( acini,) niece of the Emjieror Sigismund, falls in love with Rachel, (Calve,) sup posed daughter of Eleazar, (Arnaud,) a Jewish jew eller, by whom his love is returned. Disguised us a Jew, he is easily admitted into Eleazar'a house, where he passes as such till lie is detected by Hachel, from Ins throwing tli ? consecrated Passover bread under the table. In a secret interview with Rachel, where he tries to persuade her to fly with him, he is detected by Eleazar, but who, on learning their love, consents to the marriage. This the Prince refuses, and acknowledges himself to be achristian; but Eleazar, wishing to render his daughter happy, ;ifter a burst of passion, siill oilers to give her to him notwithstanding her great hatred oi Christians, and i lie eternal vengeance he has sworn to them. Leo i-old, who is already married, cannot, of course, ac cept; and he leaves the house of the Jew, followed by Eleazar's curses. In the third act, the Jew and his daughter appear at court during a great dinner, L'tven in honor ofthe defeat of the llussit e, for the sike of delivering a magnificent chain, which the Princess Eudoxia intended giving to her husband t'achel recognizes in him her false lover, mid iu a fit of vengeance denounces him, d 'avoir en com merce avec tine mandate, a crime for which both guil iy parties are to lie condemned to death. Hut yield , i ? to the prayers of Eudoxia, Hachel avows her -.elf to be alone guilty, and thus the Prince's life is saved. The Cardinal de Hrogni, who bus taken an inter est in Itachel.oflers to tlie Jew to save likewise both their liven, if they would abiure their faith; but this Lleazir refuses, and he una his daughter are con demned to be burned alive. Hie moment Hachel .s thrown into the lire, he tells to the Cardinal the se cret he has refused to disclose before, that she is his (the < 'ardinal's) own daughter, who lias been saved iiy him from the flames during a great fire in Home, "id, exulting at the universal despair, triumphantly follows his victim. Wi'iit of space prevents us from entering with any length into details with regard to the execution, and after another hearing we shall be more able to do ustice to the exertions of the individual performers IJitt we can even now say that Arnaud and Douvry are entitled to unqualified praise for the su|?erior manner with which they acquitted themselves. <>l this the public appeared to be fully aware, for nearly every jm*snge tiiey sung elicited great apnlstise. A r n oid, in particular, never sung to so much advantage as last night. The part he took in the finule ofthe firsi ict, and nisgrund air in the fourth act, were m^ter !y efforts.

But then her part is so ex tremely diflicult, and requires an immense physical power. Yet many passages fold very Well. To Ornuriot, who, on account of i :'-!;ness, appealed to the indulgence of the [Hiblie, nwny thanks are due lor sacrificing himself in some manner.

Cam'i.k Garden. ? This cool and refreshing retreat continues to he well attended, and fresh novelties .re almost daily added to the entertainments. Anion* these Mr. J. Winans, the inimitable New York comic singer, makes his first appearance thi8 evening, which will add considerably to the humor :nd pi -asure here to be enjoyed. Madame Pico is ? ngaged, and will make her appeurnnce at this es tablishment during the ensuing week. The enter prising proprietors deserve all the patronage that can be bestowed upon them for their energy and public spirit. The Attraction at Niblo's. ? No one who has attended Niblo's during the performances of Mis. Mowatt, and witueased the crowded and u'elight< d audiences, can doubt the promptitude of a New York public to welcome {genuine talent of native growth whenever it manifests itself. This lady has been justly described as a sort of female Kean; and yet, while many of her effects are.the result of tiue genius, she shows all the advantages of a careful and judicious histronic training. To-night she appears in the "Honey-Moon" ? a most admirable und amu sing comedy, in which Mr. Crisp plays the Duke, and Miss Taylor, Chippendale, anu the younger Placide, lend their attractive aid. We can promise those who attend a rare entertainment. Public curi osity is on tiptoe to sec Mrs. Mowatt in this new and hazardous line of character. Vauxhall Garden. ? This place of amusement is also commanding a good share of the public patron age. The performancesjof Gardener and Whitlock ?ire said to equal any thing of the kind ever presented before a New York aHdience, and are nightly receiv ed with the most unbounded applause. The per formances of Mr. W. Williams, and his infant son, are truly astonishing. Md'lle R. Gascon is an ar tiste of considerable ability; and Barney Williams, tlie Irish comedian, and Mr. De La Ree, the vocal ist, are so well known as to need no eulogy. The New Theatre in the Bowery. ? This build ing is fast drawing towards a completion. The en terprising Manager. Mr. Jackson, is exerting him self to the utmost for this object, and no doubt but every thing will be completed satisfactorily by the lirst of September. Some few weeks back, a member of the Boston Muneum company, a young lady of fine attain ment* am] much promise, died in New Bedford of congestive fever. Mis* Davenport had, from her childhood, entertained a predilection for the stage, and it will be remembered, she made her first appearance ?ome months since at the Museum, in the character of Pauline. Her success, which was flattering, fixed her determination to adopt the stage as a profession. She left Boston a short time since, for the purpose of joining a company that were represauting a series ol temperance dramas, and was last winning laurels for her advance ment in her art, when death snatched her away. She was twenty-five years of age. Misses Fanny and Emma Ince are drawing ex cellent houses at the Baltimore Museum. They are ac complished, amiable and much respected youug ladies. Tne celebrated vocalist, Antognini, of the Italian Opera, and Mr. jGibert of the Conservatoire de me ijque, I'uris, passed through Buffalo, a day or two since, on their way to fulfil engagements at Detroit and Cleve land. They are expected te give a concert in Buffalo on their retHrn. The performance at the opening ofthe Alba ny theatre'on Monday evening, ii laid to have been a loo dramatic treat. Mr. Scott was very preat, in the Moor Mr. Dyott's Iago, is spoken of as a finished performance Mr. Charles, Mr. McCutcheon, Mr. Marsh, Mrs. Dvott, and Mrs.Silsbee are also spoken of as artistes of a high order ? and the whole performance as one that wonld linve done honor to any theatre in the Union. The house was a very good one, and promises to continue to be full during the engagement of this talented corps. The Campanalosiians rang their bells at.
