H'e have hid a much lower range of tempera ture .lining tia' week now terminated, than that experienced eaiiiei in the month indeed, since Thurs day, it ha* been cold lor the time ol year, und a con si fertile quantity of rain has tsllen. Though the etato of the weather has not been such us to give rise to any uneasiness, the absence ol geuial warmth may, of itseu, ho viewed .is unfavorable, when the lateness ol the spring, and the consequent backwardness ol the crops, are taken into consideration. Kveu with the most aus picious w eather, the hai v e?t can scarcely be expected to be early ; any occurrence, tending to retard vegetation, Is, therefore, of iinpirtanco'; and in so excitable a state are holders of wheat, that very little would surttce to induce them to raise their pretensions. Up to the piesent pciiod there ute very lew complaints respecting tlio ap pearance of the wheat plant, excepting that it is about a fortnight later than at this time last year; indeed, the re verts from all quarters generally describe its aspect as lealthy and promising; notwithitan ling which, holders ol '.ne article have displayod much firmness, and it may be readily c JiH'eived what effect woul t he produced ou prices, should the weather hereafter ussume a leas pro pitious character. That even greater importance than usual should be at tached to Dih ultimate result of the harvest, is princi pally owing to th? exhausted state of the stocks of old wneat in all parts of F.urope, an. I the consequent ditll culty which il.ere would be to supply our wants in case we should really require ioreign us- stance. In addition to this fact, the prospects for the next harvest are stated to be far Irom sati lactoiy in those countiiesfrom whence we are in the habit of drawing the greater part of our I'oteign supplies iB scarce year-.; an I any thing like an active British demand would, in all probability, cause an immediate rise to take pi ire at all the Baltic ports. Krom what we have above Stilted, it must be apparent that li olders of vv heat, in this country, have leason to re dact before parting with their old stocks ut low latos; and nothing hut uninterruptedly tine weather can, in our opinion, tho value ot the a.ticle to fall below its pi eseiit lev el Our Scotch ndviccs speak very favorably of the weatner.aud the appearance of the country , and stocks ol U being rattier important at some ot the princi pal towns, less firmness h::s been displayed there than j at tho Southern markets Edinburgh lettors, of Wednes- ' day. state that the quantity of Wheat brought forwu rd by the farmers hal provei more than equal to the de mand, and that sales had proceeded tarililv at a decline of 1 s to Is lid per qr. barley had about maintained its previous position ; but the value of Oats had fallen Is to Is 6d per qr. since that day se'naight At Glasgow no material variation occurred in quotations on Wednes* day, but business was dull From Ireland the accounts of the weather and the crops continu ? very satisfactory. 'I'he generally nour ishing aspect of tho country, and the dull reports from this - de. had not been without influence on the trade in grain Wheat at several of the leading markets had been sold at rather reduced terms, aud even Oats had slightly receded. In the western parts of the island the ?docks of the latter grain are still, we believe, rather large, an i sooner or later the bulk ol w hat is held there will find its way across the Channel. ? 31<trk I. ant Ex prris, Junr 30.

I. Our quotations remain as before This steady and long-continued large buying on the part of consumers is founded upon the very prosperous statu of trade, and the good promise of its continuance. There can be no doubt that this good demand would have en tirely changed tho position of prices in an upward di rertion, had our stock only been moderate in amount On the other hand, it is almost l ev ond question that o'ir large stock would have pressed us to a still lower point had not this extraordinary revival in our manufactures taken place.

The Britannia arrived at Ho^ton last Saturda> morning, with intelligence half a month later from all parts of Europe. It is of very little consequence in a political way, but in a commercial point of view it is interesting, if not important, especially to the Southern Stat -s. We refer the public to the careful compilation on the outside. They can there see the gist at well as the detail. The Great Western with one day later news was due yesterday, and we hourly expect her arrival. The Late Uroat Flie-O.ic or Two Reflec tions Thereon. A gre it public calamity, such as that which has just visited our city, is by no means a subject which we would prefer to dwell upon in thought or on paper ; the mind instinctively feels a repugnance to do so, and discretion would tell us to forget its hor rors, if that were possible, at the earliest moment But who can forget the rapid march of the destruc tive clement, marking its course with dismay and terroi I What mind is so formed as to discharge the painful impressions produced by devastation ol pro perty aud loss of life ; the elegant mansion tottering t<j it fall ; the munificent resources of commerce ; the various production of mechanical ingenuity; the prized accumulations of exemplary industry, all con founded in one overwhelming and indiscriminating ruin I Such sad realities bind the attention in pain ful durance, and it is neither unbecoming to admit the bonds nor sympathize with the greater sufferers from the physical causes. Utile space is afforded by the columns of a dail> paper to indulge in reflections such as the moralist would make. How many salient and appropriate observations might be his on the instability of hu man possessions, the evanescence ot mortal hopes, and the liability of man, however prosperous, to ad versity and calamity. Whnt a poor guarantee is af forded by granite walls and iron doors against the career of the elements. What a feeble shield ure in surance institutions to protect the sanguine trader from absolute pauperism. Helpless, indeed, seems the dwellers in large cities when attacked by the insidious hostility of the elements ; all they can do is to lake proper precaution and use the means at hand to guard ngainst a recurrence of evil. It becomes a matter of paramount interest to in quire if there are not precautions never yet used a"aniit the awful conflagrations which are now awfully common, and which so often victimize New York. We think there are ; not perhai* practica ble by individuals, but within the power of munici pal authority. One or two words then to those who ure delegated to watch over public safety, and who represent the aggregate ?t the population in that ca pacity. It is proper, nay, it is absolutely necessary for them to interpose their power between the thoughtless as well as the malevolent, and the secu rity of the public ; they are called upon to inquire whether the culpable neglect of parties has been in strumental in causing the late loss of property and li( >. There are good grounds for suspecting such was the case. It is a notorious fact that the fire that has laid a wealthy and business district of the city in a-hes, originated in an oil store ; it is also true that the awful explosion that contributed fearfully to the spread of the flames, was that of a store filled with materials of a highly dangerous character, to be found in the heart of a densely built neighbor hood In other places of this erring world, combus tible and explosive substance# are banished to re mote situations where they are incapable oi injuring life or properly; but in New Yoik it would appsnr as though we possessed an indemnity fiom the cf fects of rashness and folly, for he who so pleases may stulf a warehouse in ihe most populous street with gunpowder, saltpetre, salt of tartar and sulphur, whose union produces one of the most explosive compounds known. Now this is a nuisance und worse. There ouiiht to be an end put to it. No m in ought to be at liberty to fill his store with these dangerous substances, any more than be permitted to set man-traps and spring-guns in the public streets, or point loaded lire arms at the breasts of his neigh bors. for no better reason than to satisfy his humor. We expect to see an inquest held on what has taken place, and measures taken to prevent such fhgrant delinquency in future. On another topic connected with thi9 tire, one or two words. There is some ground for suspecting that business men of other cities may, in endeavor, i ui* to turn this visitation upon New York to their own advantage, add new injury to that which it ac tually suffers. New York has ardent rivals for com mercial prosperity. 'The custom of the Southern merchants, who are accustomed to come here to purchase goods, would be a bonne bonrhe for the mer chants of Philadelphia, Boston, "or Baltimore, and they may, verv lilOely, take some pains to convey the impression that the price and supply of goods may be affected in this market by the destruction that has occurred. All such attempts ought to prove futile, as they will, we think ; for there are no good grounds for any such representation as that New York cannot supply her customers as well ? nay bet ter, as u.-<ual, than any competitor. That there has been a heavy loss of mercantile commodities is true, but it amounts to but a drop in the fountain of mer chandize that is held by her opulent and enterpriz ing merchants. No market on the continent offers 1 lie same facilities to purchasers todo their business New York. It must continue to have the precedence as long as her harbor is navigable and her credit unimpaired. United States Shit North Caruuna ? Error Corrected. ? In our account in yesterday's paper ot the great lire, our waiters (rom misinformation di I not do justice to the officers and crew of the " North Carolina." Immediately on the outbreak of the conflagration, mtd when it was perceived that its mages were likely to be so extended as to demand all the aid which could jiossibly be rendered, the First Lieutenant, A. <t. Gordon, I0sq , sent the men on f-hore under commnnd of Lieut. Rowan. The boats of the ship, laden witii a supply of gunpowder, under command of Lieut. Ward, did shore duty. The marine guard of the ship was also on shore un der a proper command. Indeed, the fact is, as we scertuined yesterday, only twelve men were left in charge of the vessel ? to such an except, we think we can truly sny, was the generous desire of the of licr.i to aid their fellow-citizens in that hour of ex 'reme peril, carried. And the service, it need hard I y be added, rendered from this quarter wan most valuable. Olficers and men exerted themselves to the utmost, Working at the lire engines ? removing probi ty from ihe burning buildings to places of hi <? irity? and their exertions never ceased until they were lelieved by the military of the city at an ad vanced period in the afternoon. This prompt and ellicient md was acknowledged by his Honor the Mayor in a pro|>er manner, and his official thanks were presented to Commodore Jones and Captain Cooper, and tlir?u?h them to the officers and crew of tin- vesocl. We may add, that in addition to the large and efficient body of seamen and marines en gaged in nervic* daring the progress of the fire, fifty i iien were rendezvoused at the rcMdence of Purse'i llice, i I Greenwich street, for the purpose of ren dering aid to the citizens in that neighborhood and relieving their messmates on active duty Pun.ei III?" himself whs most actively engaged in givinp assistance and conn- ?! to in < ! I I'v-citiz 'us in thai part of Greenwich street who I ored throughout the night under aiixietien tinpfi ,1 !a to describe We have very irre?t pie isure hi tint* awarding to the officers and men attached to the North Carolina who did dutv on this melancholy occasion, the just tribute of public gratitude. The omission of thin yesterday was owing altogether to misapprehension i; th c ? ' I our reporters, whoal^ohnd a tno?t nr uooa duty to j ioi m, in collecting the details of this . ..ppsiling calamity j Additional Particulars of th? Or cat Conlla grntlou? View of the liuliia the Day after the Fire. The great lire of Saturday is the all-absorbing topic of conversation. We published a very large edition yesterday of our regular paper, with full par ticulars of the calamity, and as larjje a number ol Extra Heralds. These particulars, with a corrected pl:in ol the lire, we republish to-day in a Supple- i ment. And all the additional facts collected yester day, we annex. The " burnt district" covers over a space of at least twenty acres, and the number of buildings destroyed is now estimated ut three hundred and forty-live. This number, we now believe to be a pretty lair calculation. It is made up from the figures of intelligent gentlemen, who are well ac quainted with the whole locality. The appearance of the ruins is paiuful to eveiy beholder; it in as painful toithe stranger as to the citi zen; but still more painful and desolating to those who have lost, perchance, their all by this destruc tive lire. This district was visited by thousands throughout yesterday, and hundreds came from the surrounding country to view the scene of desola tion. In giving the additional facta of this fire, we ar range them under the head of each street. In this way we have the whole, as it appeared on the day alter the occurrence of the disaator. Broadway. ? The appearance of Broadway* which was kept in a state of blockade by the mill* tarv ull throuuh the day, was truly distressing, par ticularly to the gay Letharios" and his dear " inamorata," who were wont to wend their way through this fashn?able lounge to the Buttery and Castle Garden. Men were busily engaged in pull ing down the shell of Waverley Hotel, and the wreck of the whole line of buildings down as far as Vlarketlield street. The whole had the npi>earunce of a siege. The buildings being all nearly pulled down in the distric t through which the tire raged, the work of desolaiion can be all seen in iwnorama, from Broadway. Every avenue, from whence a glimpse could be had, was blocked up with anxious crowds, who kept continually movintr through the day IHrom one locality to the other, where the mili tary were stationed, and ropes were drawn across the streets. The greater nart of the houses in this quarter are already pulled down, and the entire area trom Trinity Church to Whitehall street and the tront gate of the Battery, presented a most melan choly a|)|>earance. The inmates of the houses that escaped, may be seen occasionally stealthily gazing from the windows upon the still surrounding ruins, with terror and dismay depicted in their counten ances. The Bowling Green, with the fountain, which arr uninjured, may be compared to an "oasis in the desert." The streets all around were strewn in all directions with fragments of burned furniture, burned pieces of cloth, damaged teas, which were profusely scattered in all directions, bricks and mor lar, broken crockery, and all sorts of damaged mer chandize. The building No. 17 is totally destroyed. The. blocking up of this part of Broadway has' had the effect to deprive numbers of our citizens from enjoying their usual Sunday recreations on the Bat tery. Battery. ? A large 'quantity of the property was strewn; along the Battery, where were snuatted upon the grass several poor families who had heen burned out, with the miserable remnants of their little prop erty. Groups of persons flocked around them du ring the day to listen to the appalling details of the fire ; they excited ajgood deal of sympathy. ? The Military Jjin this quarter were actively moving about ; and some of the Aldermen of kthe city were also engaged in making enquiries and aiding in Keeping regularity. The military got rigid orders to keep all outride the burned district ; which rule has been enforced, save in some few instances, with the utmost care. "Judge Smith of the Marine ( ourt, was actively engaged in keeping order and aiding the authorities during the early part of the day, which praiseworthy act seem ed to give a good deal of satisfaction. Several peo ple from New .lersey and the adjoining cities and towns crowded the city during the day, all anxious to see the ruins. Broad Street. ? This street, which a few days =ince was the very centre of business ? lined with extensive warehouses, stored with costly goods, is now, from near the corner of Wall to Stone street, i heap of smouldering rums. Piles of brick and mortar ? burning rafters, and damaged merchandise block the way where merchants drove their trade. ? The walls have all fallen in, or have been pulled town. and it is believed many persons have been buried beneath the ruins. Crowds of eager and curious citizens throng the neighboring streets, an xious to view the sad spectacle. The efficient and gentlemanly company of National Greys were on duty in this part of the town. We found, however, ?i _rreat crowd of loalers and rowdies in the neigh borhood. one or two ol whom we understood had mounted military caps and employed themselves by annoying the citzens with their assumed and ridiculous airs. We saw one of these fellows at the head of Broad street, whose in -olent and overbearing manner arrested our attention. He was engaged in pasing his friends ind acquaintances down Broad street, where they ?ould inspect the ruin;-, and blackguarding and insult ing those whom he H id not cho?e to favor. This indi vidual called himselfa military oliicer, butreftued to ;ive his name when it was requested by a person present, which satisfied every one that he was an imwohter. This matter should be looked into bv the company. William Street, behind the Exchange, was blockaded ^roui;liout the day by the military, a? was Beuver ^trcet aud South William street, nnd Broad Btree^at the end of Stone. From the latter l>oint a good Yi?w of the ruins might be had by look ing along Broad street towards the Custom House, nxl again toward* Broadway ? the (nil extent of the damage done could be seen. At these different ;iointB hundreds might be seen throughout the day, but no one except those with written orders from Justice Matsell or the commandinu ofiiccr, was <il iowcd to approach the ruins nearer; nor would it have been prudent in any person to have done k?, us many of the standing walls were in a v??ry critical state, expected every instant to fall. Then again it was necessary that this cordon should be strictly kept, for a great amount of property was lying about in all directions, and such stores as were not mate rially damaged by the fire, remained open, many having had their doors and windows forced away by the explosion. In consecpience of the Hrictnees with which this regulation was enforced, several humorous and amusing scenes took pi ice around the site of the lire, between the military and parties wit-hini? to get a closer view of the ruins. On the whole, the military and police behaved with great firmness and forbearance, notwithstanding they had a good deal to put up with. MisstNfJ, Killed and Wounded. ? Mrs. Mary Itunyon, sister-in-law of police cllicer Martin, was Uandiuc iu the door of the house .Vo. 37 Broad .-treet, with her husband on the morning of the fire. ?She went up stairs and is supposed to have been bu ried in i he ruins at the time of the explosion, which is paid to have razed the house. We understand in id'lition to the names already published, that the following persons ure missing, flow many more 'here are, we cannot say, but have no doubt many more have lost their lives by this dire calumny Messrs. Cowdry, May, Johnson, Barker, Henry Utt in <n and Jones. A win named Peter \. Johnson, iorter for Dwiglit Johnson, UN Broad street, and a colored i| in, whose name is unknown, were ex tamed yesterday from the ruin* of Ovlridi and children, who are thus entirely without stpport. A 1 ihoring man was carried to the Hospital yesterday, whose Hrm had been broken by the falling of a piece of limber at the lire. Two men and a woman, whose names are unknown, were also taken to the Hospital slightly injured. Mrs. M. Dudley, resi ling at 18 New street, was also badly hurt at the time of the explosion. f ifty or sixty workmen are now employed in dig ging in th'? ruins for the dead bodies which are said to be buried in ihe cellars of the burnt houses. Military.? The 9th Regiment, under the com mand of Cel. Curtis, was on duty throughout ye?tei lay, assisted by several compinies of th?> Blues, the President's Guard*, some volunteer companies, Mid the Italian Guards. They went on duty at 7 o'clock yesterday inorninL', and were relieved by ny the J27th Regiment, about frflO strong, under the command of Col Vernnlyea, about 8 o'clock laM evening During the day there was some di Matnt'a< - ; ion prevailing among the Uiihfir>, in consequence of the scarcity and quality of iTfpiovisi'ius al their head Viarters, Castle Garden. Messrs French & I leiser were truly eat up and drank out of everything by the company of the previous day. they only having or ders to provide for seven hsndred, insiertJ of which iliey had about two thousand one hundred lo provide "r. Yesterday being .Sunday, Messrs French >V ! leiser co.ild not renew their supplies ipuck enough ?>T die demand, arid furnished what they could; the consequence was the dissatisfaction alluded to. 'he * ifliient residents of the neighborhood ini^lit have j ?liown some generosity in this respect toward* ihose who were protecting their lives ?nd properly. , Pursuant to Brigule orders, the several companies | d the 38lh regiment, in ibis city, and Capt < )lney s I ompiny of Brooklyn, are ordered for guard ? it y during to-night, for irr* protecti m ol | lie nroi>etiy ;?!' the citizens saved from the l ite i i damiious tire. The regimental line will be formed m the Park, in front of trie City Hall, at ft o'clock hi ! the evening. The officers will appear in full dre-.s ( uniform, and the non-commissioned officers and ! privates, in undress uniform, and cloth pantaloons, i ? id are each to provide himself with h blanket in his , kiupMck Incidents, Arc. ? A large ilog, apparently very old, was taken, yesterday afternoon, by u gentleman, lrom the ruirts ol the late fire, lie was tirst observ ed on Saturday morning, very intently watching the remains ol a More in Heaver street, near Whitehall; ind when taken away, his legs were found to be nearly burned oil", so much so that he was with much dilliculty able to walk. He is advertised in an other column, by the person who took him, and who will take care of htm until his owntr nwy call tor him. It may he that the owner is buried to the ruins of the building where the dog was found. The sale of Messrs. Maitland, Corwin St Co. of liroad street, was du# out lrom the ruins, and their papers were found uninjured. We understand the hospitable and gentlemanly proprietors of the Astor House, Messrs. Coleman 6c Stetson, furnished a sumptuous repast to the firemen who exhumed the bodies of the two men taken to the dead house. Officer Floyd, of the new police, saved 23,000 Re galia segars front a store in New street, during the lire, for which he wants an owner. Insurance. ? We make a few additions to the list of the amounts insured : The Protection Co. in Hartford $70,000 " Ktnu < o. " " 100,000 " Hartford Co. " " t.. 100, 000 " City Co., in thii city 7a,oOO " Long Uistnd Co. _ 'J7.000 The latter company have a capital of $210,000, and a surplus of $62,000. The aggregate capital of the I larttord Companies is, we believe, about $400,000. The loss sustained bv the Long Island Company is about ten per centT of their capital. They have, after pa\ ing losses, $1HI),(X)0. The Boston Company's loss is not more *han $45,000. The Providence Company, whose loss will not ex ceed $15,000. Amongst tlie many instances of genero sity una kindness to the firemen during the late terrible tire, we have pleasure in referring to the munificent liberulity of Mr. K. B. Daly the pro prietor of the great wholesale wine ' and liquor establishment No. W Broad street, whose store is amongst the very few in that vicinity saved. When the firemen were utterly exhausted by th-;r heroic labors, Mr. Daly turned several wine and brandy caeks into the street, and from them supplied them with the means of restoring their expended energies. Such generosity ought not to pas.i uiino ticecf. There have been sixteen of Wilder's patent Sala mander Safes in the fire; nine of which have been recovered, and it has been lound that their content* have been but very little, and, in many instances, not at all injured. The many narrow escapes which several had, is truly astonishing ? indeed, may be said to be almost miraculous. Shortly alter the lire broke out, Jus tice Matsell observed a |>erson amid the smoke, i , - parently confused; he went to him, and, taking hold of his cont, inquired his business there, lie replied, "Oh, Justice, 1 can't find my way out ? I don't know where 1 am." At that moment the ex plosion took place, and the tirst thing Justice Mat sell knew afterwards, was finding himself at s ome distance, between two bales of cotton, with a por tion of a door and shutter over him. which fortu nately protected him from other falling ruins. Again, in a few hours ufterwards. word was con veyed to the Justice that a parcel of fellows were stealing some goods on the Battery. He immedi ately proceeded to the spot along Beaver street, ac companied by several of the police force, at a timo when the walls of several buildings were fast crumbling to pieces and tumbling around. Just as they reached the end ol the street, a massive wall fell so close to thein that one of the bricks struck the Justice as he was endeavoring to escape, but fortunutely did not materially injure liim. Notwith standing these two narrow escapes, he remained as active as ever throughout the day and night. The following were given in the list yesterday as having been sullerers by this calamity. It must be gratifying to find that these haTe escaped without loss of property : Kobinson tfc Co., No. -18; Henry Escher, No. 50; Wilmerding, Priest & Mount, No. 00; Benkhard & Hutton, ana Draper, Dias & War ren, 00 Beaver street. 1 Mr. Daggett is about to issue a supplement to the Directory he has lately published, containing the change of the residences of those who have been oblieed to lind other places to carry oil their business, in consequence of this great calamity. This is very judicious, and all persons burnt out should, as soon as possible, furnish the address of their future places of business to this enterprising publisher. ' Of the light-lingered gentry of all classes and co lors, there were no scarcity, and it is believed the quantity of goods und property stolen is of large amount. In one case, a negro "who was intent on looking out for chances, laid hold of a piece of superfine black cassimere, in Pearl street, and took to his heels with the booty. A person on the ground caught a sight of the transaction, and furnished with a slant stick gave pursuit. The negro was disagreea bly awakened from his dream of success iu the ex ploit by a blow behind the ear lrom his pursuer, which laid him flat as a flounder on the pavement. Not a word was spoken. The freeboo#"'- turned up the white of his eyes in amazement, and ssw the depniting figure ol a man with the cassimere in one hand, and a stick in the other, and forthwith took to his heels, glad to escapc with his life. In another case, a person met a friend with the un usual burthen of seven cigur boxes under his arm, "Where did you get so many cigars, Mr. Brown 1" said he. " 1 have been hard at it," replied the oth er, "for four hours : drink is as^scaree as in the Arabian desert, and to the lea.-t 1 can do is to have a hearty smoke for my labor." Naval Reform.? The condition of our navy is n aubject which now very naturally and justly occu pies n large share of public attention. It is, indeed, of the most vital importance that this great arm of tie national defences should be in a state of perfect discipline and pructicalttrility in all its details. We iiitcnd to into this matter with the cnre and atten tion which it merits. The bureau system in all it:t wotkin?s and bearings will be one of the first l?ranihes of the subject to which we will invite the .ittenf nrfour readers. Then the strength and ct pr.jtty of the navy ? the principles regulatory of ap pointment.'1. detachnu nts and promotion ? the gener il relations of the Department to the. service itself? and other matters will follow. This is a subject of deep concernment to every citizen, and the present is a fitting time to submit it to full and careful exa mination. Great Speed. ? The Niagara, Capt. De Groot, left Albany nine minutes past seven on Saturday morn ing, making sixteen landings, and arriving at New York at half-past four . Theatricals Park Theatre. ? The bill for the performance of lo-night offers great inducements -to the lovers of the opern and gaiety : the second act of "Guillaume Tell," which is considered the best for musical effect; the third and fourth of " La Favorite," the finest of that opera, with M'lle. Calv6, M'mes. Casini and Cceunof; and Messrs. Arnand, Garry, Douvry and Uuscher support them by their splendid singing and icting. To this is added " M'lle. D'Angeville," it vaudeville in one act, in which M'ine Creuriot is to appear in four ditferent characters, assisted by Megars Mathieu, Jules and Oternot. We doubt not but our citizens will avail themselves of this extraor"j dinary performance to go and spend a delightfu vening in this fine house. Ntm-o's Garden. ? To-night the " Bride of Lam m-rnioor," rendered familiar by Sir Walter Scott, and Donnizetti, is to be given in Engli?h. Mis. \Iowatt, who has already appeared to great ndvan ige as Pdiiline and Juliana, undertakes the very i nportut character of Lucy Ashton. No drama in the rcfifrtoire is so capable of developing the highest possible talenta of a lady, as the " Bri.le of Limmermoor-" We believe Mrs. Mowatt piite adequate to an excellent personation of the .rominent rfl/e in this very superior dramatic pro luction, which will attract to-night a very crowded ;irden.' Mr. Crisp will appear as Edgar. Mrs hippendale appears, for the first tune, as Lady \nhton; Davenport, aa Bucklaw ; Chippendale, as Caleb, and the cth-r characters by Davenport, N'icke'rson, &c. The whole piece is well cant. ( )ne of the most comic pieces, " //?'* mt a- Mitt," in which Mrs W.itis, Mis* Matthews, and John Pefton appear, concludes. (>o early. Vavxhau Garden. ? The programme for to-night is a very Hne one, and it can be seen! that the di rector neglects nothing to preserve and increase his ?atronnge. We invite the attention of the pablie to V'auxhall ; they will find it an agreeable during these hot evenings.. Camtle Garden.?
