NEW YORK HERALD New York, Thnrxlay, July 31, MAILS FOR EUROPE HV TIIK Sfrara Ships Great Western and llritiinnia EXTRA HERALD. The Great Western sails from this port to-day for Liverpool ; the Britannia leaves Boston to-mor row for tlies:ime destination. The Irtter bags of the former close in this cay at 2 o'clock, and those of the Britannia at j of f> o'clock this afternoon. To meet the wishes of the public, we shall issue an Extra llerald at J past 1 o'clock, with the lateti news received in the meantime for the Great West ern; and another Extra at 3 o'clock with still later intelligence for the Britannia. These Extras will contain, among other interesting matter for the Eu ropean reader, the map of the Burnt District, which we published in the Weekly Herald. The price of these papers in wrappers will be two cents |>er copy. Texan Affairs* On the outside of to-day's paper will be found the official intelligence of the consummation of annexa tion so far as Texas can consummate it. We give the proceedings in the convention, and the corres pondence in full, as they are nearly the finishing stroke to the business, and because they will be highly interesting to France and England, and to "the man in the white hat." Our Congress winds up the whale matter by its ratification, and tin n Texas will b? one of us. It will be perceived, on reference to the list of those who com[H>sed the Texan convention that, with two exceptions only, the members had a powerful infusion of American blood in their veins. Our Itlght lu Orrgon-Ii It an Iticontestll>l< One I It is stated in the Union, a paper generally correc; on all matters not affecting the harmony of the Cabi net, that the Oregon negociations between the Uni ted States and (treat Britain, have been freshly open ed. That paper also informs us that the Secretary oi State is indefatigable in his correspondence ; am; Father Ritchie throws out the hint, with no little I indignation, iiiat the Pennsylvania statesman hat not yet brought his opinion of our right to the whole territory down to the 49th degree. II this was true, it would be worth s unething to the Iriends of Ore gon. But is it true ? In this uncertainty in the matter it will be wel enough to look a little into our " incontestible right,*' as it is called. Our superior el?ims to the whole of Oregon? to the boundary line or .">4 40, as arranged with Kussia, j are not universally understood in this country? not ! even by all those who unhesitatingly assert our right to the whole; an,: ..e. therefore, by way of an im- i prttni.i pi ice the flutter briefly in our columns, in ' order tc ?ive tie n ii>lic a clear view of the question. | All this. ::i uuw toiuv pamphlets and public documents, ! has beer pubii heJ, but active, energetic Americans, I who uie seeking fortunes, have only time to read i newspapers, after they have once started u|>on active business pursuits This matter, in all its ramifications, is thus ar ranged ia otir minds and according to unimpeach- ' able testimony.

The treaty of Utrecht between France and Oreat Britain appointed commissioners, who fixed upon the 49? ol lat. as the line of demarkation between the possessions ol the two nations west of the Mis sissippi river. 1783. The treaty of Paris between Spain, France, and Great Britain, fixes the boundary between the pos sessions of the two latter nations by a line along the middle of the Mississippi from its source to the Iberville, in Louisiana, along the middle of that river, and lakes Mouripas and Ponchartrain to the sea. 1778. Cook lands at Nootka Sound, discovered by Spain in 1674 and 1774. 1789. Colnet attempts to take possession of Nootka Sound; he is taken prisoner by Martinez, the Spaniard. 1790. Spain and Oreat Britain entered into a convention, which reserved the sovreignty of Nootka Sound to Spain, but granted some commercial privileges to Great Britain. This Convention gave to Spain the sovreignty and exclusive ownership over all the coast to the north of west America on the side of the South Sea, as far as beyond Prince Wil liam's Sound. 1792.

Astoria is taken by the F.nglish. 1818. Astoria is restored to the United States by the treaty of Ghent. 1819. The right of Spain to territory on the Pacific north of42?, is ceded to the United States. 1824. Treaty between Russia and the United States fixes the northern boundary of Oregon at 04 40? north latitude. These tacts, thus chronologically arranged, assert our clear anil unquestionable right to the length and rendtli ot the territory as far north as 5440 deg.; ..nd it ish'>re perceived that, apart from the right of purchase derived from Spain, we have a stronger claim than Eng'.itid c m produce, in the priority of our discevery and occupancy; and another right, a natural one, equally .'u pari or. in our territorial con nection with the land in dispute. H has lieen assert ed, and is now maintained by eminent statesmen, that even if our r'jjht by discovery and purchase was inferior to tint ol in. -at Britain, we can never |ier mit that or m.y ;.;h-r European nation to occupy a Hingk foot of aoil jn this continent that they do not n?.w own nmi cultivate. It is true American policy? the declaration of M. Ginzot to the contrary not withstanding ? to regulate the affairs of North Ame rica, and in the course of a few short years, those of South America also. This was the declared policy ol President Monroe, and so fur as Oregon is con cerned, it was, w>' believe, the subject matter of a dispatch written by Mr. Rush, when Minister in England, to the British Government, ft is not our intention, however, to assert any abstract claim to Oregon; it is unnecessary to do >0. ( )ur right is de rived rom two sources sufficiently irresistible for our purpose. First, the right by discovery ; second tin rig it by purchase. Y et, in the face of these it' has been thrown out, probably, by autho nty, that the Secretary of State 1Vnd the British Minister had agreed upon the 49th degree as the boundary line. It is not likely that that degree of latitude has been settled upon, although the Secretary of State was, and is evidently willing to accept it as the line of demarcation. The rumor that it had been arranged, was circulated to " e| the public puis#, and when it was ascertained that any such compromise in the matter would over 'hrow the administration, the Secretary of State ?ook new ground, and re-opened the negociation with the British Minister. What the result will be, time will show. These facts and views the Union may think it besi 10 deny. Let the organ undertake the task. Some Note* on n Trip to tlic \Ve?t? Niagara Falls, July 28, 1845. During the last ten days, up to the reception ot the first fearful accounts of the tire in New York, the travel in this region was greater than it ever j was before. Day and night, the Cataract Ho'el. ] kept considerably well by General Whitney & Sons. | was crowded to suffocation. Recently the travel j has fallen oil very much, caused principally by very I many of the New York travellers returning suddenly to the city in consequence of the great contiagra- ! tion. Vet this delightful, healthy place, is not by any means resorted to so much as it might be ? and as i" ; would be, if the same amusements and accommo dations were provided for them, as there arc at Sa ratoga or Sharon. There is now only one large ho- 1 tel on the American side, the one I have already mentioned, and that is supposed to be clearing from 912, COO to $18,000 a season, so great has the crowd of travellers increased of late years. On the British side, the Clifton House is kept in capita! style by Mr. Griffln, who formerly kept the old Eagle Hotel of tins place, now shut up, and only occasionally used as a concert room by musicians, vocalists, and In dian psalm singers. In the way of amusements, during th? I ?-t few 1 days, we have had quite a variety. First, t'l - re w.-s Ole Bull, who, assisted by Mr. Duifieid, a very good singer, gave a couple of concerts, both pretty well attended. After Ole, followed Welsh Dfl.iv.ui's famous Circus Company with fifty splendid hm'tes and fifty men. They drew out all the bone and mils- j cle ? the village beauty and black eyes in odo riferous perfection. Horsemanship and still vaubin^ decidedly draw the crowds in the country village#. The tiinnner and style in which Welsh's famous company travel over the land and amuse the count r., people, is the most picturesque and romantic afiair in the world. Goethe's William Meister is not more interesting. But enough on the horses ? they were followed bv a company of Iudian singers front the Tuscaror 1 ' village, situated on the mountain cliffs, below the Falls, and looking over Ontario's blue waters. Seven Indians and three squaws formed the com- 1 |Kiny. Their music was a sad jumble of discords, ' picked up f rom the common church psalmody; but yet they have voices and materials to make tlient novel and popular One young, stout Indian, u |>erfect | Apollo in his appearance, with more of Hercules in j his limbs, exhibited a bass voice as powerful and : full of melody as many could hear, but of course it j was raw and uncultivated. If some enterprising ' person were to engage these Tuscaroras for a term ot years ? teach them the pro|>er style ot siug- j ing ? dress them up in the native costumes ot their j tribes ? make them get up pieces in the Indian tongue, which is as open and melodious as the i Italian ? take them to Europe and have them pro- j perly heralded throughout the world, 1 have ne doubt | an immense sum of mony could be made out of the enterprise. But in this part of the world, all the enterprize and capital of the land is directed towards the ?op per and silver mines of Lake Superior. Preparations are making, I hear, to form companies tor copper and silver mining, equal to $>20,000,000, if not more. Some of the original speculators have made fortunes of $30,000? som? of #40,000 ? some of $30,000? all originally created out of an invest ment of a fewer hundreds. The steamers going up the lakes, towards Milwauk ie, are crowded with speculators, capitalists,, fortune " hunters, copper diggers, and silver miners. This singular mania of making fortunes by mining for copper and silver, will, in a few years, settle the j whole southern or American side of Lake Superior, with an active population in a very brief space of time. The great central point from which these spe culations proceed, appears to be Boston, but the spirit is now extending to New York and the whole north em and eastern States. Whatever be the resuit of this mining mania to individuals (and dozens will be entirely ruined) the country willgain? particulai ly northern Michigan and Wisconsin, the regions to which these speculations are directed. The great in land seas and navigation of the northwest ? the towns and cities on the shores of the several 1 ikes, from Buffalo to Chicago, will also be benefited. The oftener and longer I see Niagara Falls, the mor? I am delighted with its scenery ? its salubri ty ? its beauty ? its sublimity ? and particularly with its capability to become one of the greatest inland manufacturing marts that the world ever saw. The water power here, easily accessible, is sufficient to equal all the steam power of England. The geological formation of the country is such and so peculiar, as to give facilities for a series of waterfalls, equal in height to that at Lockport, for a distance of 80 or 100 miles, running along the mountain ridge from Lewiston, till it loses itself in the Genesee flats east ward. The proximity of Niagara to the cotton, iron, copper, coal, and wool of the surrounding States, east, south, and west, is greater than that of any other locality in the world. The natural advanta ges of this wonderful place for these purjiObes ar-' so great, that the same men and enterprising capital- i Hts who created Lowell, in rut n^n tiated for projierty and water power in this place? but j having failed for some cause in making a good Hr gain, they afterwards settled down upon Lowell. Y?f Niagara must in process of time, become the pie*: Manchester, or manufacturing mart of the world. The property on the American side is principally held by the Porter family, who must eventually le made very wealthy by the increase and population of the country If they were, even now, to dispose at a cheap rate, of every alternate lot of ground they own, they would make them in our day much more valuable than they are. On the British side, a large amount of the property is owned by James Buchan an, Esq., late British Consul in New York. M \ liuchanan, now retired from office, lives in a lov?iy country residence, and 011 uy 3 his otium cum digni tate within the roar of Niagara. Signor Antognini has just arrived, and gives a concert to-morrow. Rotation in Office. ? Several days ago we men. tioned that the President had settled upon twelve years as the longest term a democrat could hold of fice. This statement the Union denied 111 its usual felicitous manner. It now appears that we were correct. That term has been agreed upon in Cabi. net Council, and several hundred aged heads, here and elsewhere, are soon to roll in the dust, on the principle of rotation. 1 Another Roorback. ? It will be seen that among I the arrivals at the Franklin Hotel last evening was i Mr. (>. A. Roorback from South Carolina. 1 1 is hj> | pearance alarmed many until they discovered that it j was not Roorback the famous tourist in the slave States but a quiet gentleman from the Palmetto re gion.

Packets hor K trope. ? The Kurope, Furber, for Liverpool ; Prince Albert, Sebor, for London ; and Baltimore, Ftinck, for Havre, will sail to-morrow for their respective destinations. News from Ne%v I^onimj.n.? We are indebted to Mr. Tucker, the gentlemanly conductor of the Long Inland llailroad, for late news from New Haven. From Jamaica.? A letter of July 6th Bays:?"

Canada ?There is hardly anything in our lates' atct 'Jnyj trpjjn hi* Province worthy of recording At litis a -fcuon of the year, aft?r the hurry of tht Spring trade is past, and several weeks before it: ( ill revival takes place, the Canadians are almost in d state of torpidity. The arrival of the fall tfeet in Sept mber, and the introduction of the new cro| into the market must he waited for before there i^ any stir in business. We believe the farmer* are fortunate in the prospect of an abundant harvest; the ravage of the wheat fly, so detrimental to their inte rest? ill past years, have almost disippeared in this Tint may stimulate business in the fall ; for the de mand for goods in Canada is nearly altogether regu lated by the means of purchasing at lorded to the farmers by their crops. To a certain extent the price of timber so operutes also, but to n trilling ex tent compared with the agricultural interest. Mer chants are anxiously looking out for a good fall trade, as the stock of merchandize is heavy in the market. Dry goods have badly remunerated impor ters, simply because there is an excessive suppy. It is a matter of surprise that the London, Manchester and ( Hasgow manufactures and warehousemen con tinue to seud enormous supplies of goods into that market, having learned so often, particularly in 1842 and 18-13, the hazard it is uttended with. But so long >is profuse piles of fabrics lie in British ware houses unsought and unpurchased, offers from buy ers in uny quarter will not be refused. Th ? arrivals in the ports of Quebec and Montreal tire now few. From Montreal on the 26th July, cle \r "d, brig Susannah for Plymouth, witii !;r.iin, ;Hvv j j deals ; and the brig Mecca for ( il isgow, with poi rtud pearl ushes, staves and Hour.

The amount of ?ji :n ?>- i i the Montreal Savings Bank on July the 2Mb v i * ?18,737 13 0, a large sum for a place of is population, a<id shows its people to be of a provi dent Hi-position. Pi.lit'cs are little spoken of, as far as can be infer red fi.>m the Canada papers, which are chiefly filled up with jieraonal disputes and statements in refer piiee in the late fire in Quebec. Collections con tinue t-? be made for the sufferers throughout the enu my, in all parts of which sympathy was stron^ I; m inifested. At the last .veekly meeting of the ? ;imittee m Quebee held on the 21st inst.. the Treasurer stated in his report the whole sum re lved up to that date to be ?27,747, out of which there had been paid ?9,882, leaving a balance in hand of ?17,865. At this meeting a resolution was adopted to request the British Consuls to make col leeiions at their respective stations in aid of the relief fund. We observe that the corporation have enacted a bye-law "to provide for the construction of dwellings in such way as to diminish the danger from lire;" and that those who have the disposal of the funds for the relief of the sufferers are deter mined to effect an improvement in building houses by withholding aid from all who do not conform to the prescribed conditions in regard to the erection of new houses. In Montreal the authorities have found it necessa ry to interfere in putting a stop to the conduct of cab drivers, which had become a nuisance. This is only what occurs in every place, for it appears from the experience of New York, and of the English cities us well as every other, that drivers of public vehi cles are the most unruly set of fellows to be found, when not under a strict municipal supervision. Two new Catholic Bishops have been consecra ted in Montreal, where imposing and splendid ce remonies took place in the Bishops' Church. The Clergymen elevated to the episcopate are the Right Revered N. Blanchet as Bishop of Oregon, where heliasbeen a missionary tor eight years, and the Reverend J. C. Prince, Coadpitor of Montreal. There were present at the ceremonies the Bishops of Montreal, Toronto, and Kingston, and the Coadju tors of Kingston and Quebec, besides not less than 130 of the Clergy. Sporting Intelligence. The Footrace Between Barton and Skwari> N'o Go. ? Tlie match for a race, made some time since, between these two pedestrians, announced to I come oil to-day, on the Beacon Course, Iiuboken, will not take place, Seward paying forfeit. He hat been in heavy training for some time past, and had so far reduced himself, that upon trial yesterday morning, he found that he wa9 not able to perform anything like what was expected from him. So, in ju.-tice to his friends and supporters, and wi?h their advice, agreed to act as stated. It must be borne in mind that a mile is a much greater distance than Seward has been in the habit of performing; in his other matches, his distance has seldom or never ex ceeded half a mile, and forwhich'he seldom or never trains. . There is a match in contemplation between Sew ard and the Canadian horse IIops, to go a quarter of a mile and lean ten hurdles, each three feet 6 inches iiigh. The bacKers',of Seward want a start of twenty live yards in his favor, which it is expected, will be conceded, or at least a start of a few yards. The af fair is expected to come off as soon as Seward re covers hi9 strength. Cricket. ? We learn that a match is to take place to-morrow on the St. George's ground, Blooming dale road, between two elevens of the St. George s Club. A large number of the first players of this Club have proceeded to Montreal, to play a match there, but we understand there is enough left to make two good elevens. The popularity of this manly game is rapidly increasing, and we doubt not there will be a large number ol spectators in attend ance. The wickets are to be pitched at 9 o'clock, and play called at 10 o'clock. TROTmiON the CA.\tnRiD(;E Course, Boston. ?

We have received by the packet barque Rapid, Captain Ward, which sailed tiom il-tvana on the 20th inst., our regular files up '<> thi ? date. The island was in a state of great tranquillity, and the drought which had desolated the Inland for seve r i1 weeks previous, and the evil consequences of v liich were sreatly feared by the population, had Mibsided, nnd copious rains had restored the expec tations of the planters. " These papers contain no news of importance, and with the exception of the execution of J. B Marti nez a/ins Martial, one of the wealthiest and most influential men of color of the Island, who had been convicted by a court martial lor havini: been one of the most active chiefs in the colored insurrection of Matanzas, nothing worth relating had taken place. It seems that the soldiers of several regiments in garrison iu the Island have taken great dislike to their officers, and several of them had attempted the lives of their superiors. Two of them, Jose Vasquez, a rlvuxtw of the regiment ol Naples, was shot on the ISth, for having killed the corporal of Ins com pany, by shooting him with his musket; and another named Manuel Garcia, a private of the regiment of Leon, was executed in the same manner for having also fired his piece utliis corporal, with the intention of killing him. On the 13th also, a negro called Juan Guano, who had been arrested for stealing on board the Ameri can packet F. A. Brown, and had been condemned lo be flogged, received eighty garrotrt on dillerent points of the bay, insight of the whole shipping. ? Capt. Westbrook of the B. was much complimented tor the vigilance he kept on board Ins vessel, to which is entirely ascribed the detection and appre hension of the scoundrel. The subscription in favor of the sufferers by the great conflagration at Matunzas amounted, at the latest dates, for the city of Havana, to $9, Ifl 6HJ, uml three days previous, for the city of Matanzas, to *2,1 1? 43 j Among t e passengers in the Rapid, we notice the names of the Hon. I'ickett, law United Slates Charge d'Affaires at Lima, M Ludert, Ksq., Rus sian Consul-General for the Island of Cuba, and A Murray and C. 11. Wells, of the 1J. S. Navy, from (he Pacific Squadron. Pi/kkto Cauello, July 8, 1845 Stu'e of tl if Country ? Commercial A flairs ? 'I tie American Minister, <$?<?. It will llord you renewed satisfaction to learii that |>eace continue# to reign throughout this Re public, under the auspices of the politic and able administration which directs its destinies. The i government, as established by the people in 1830, ap|*ears to be fixed upon a firm basis and receive* the cordial support of an immense majority, while the President and cabinet endeavor to forward the best interests of the country with energy, though the means in them invested by the Coustitution and the Legislature. The Venezuelians owe u debt of : magnitude to their great military commander and I noble citizen, his excellency General Joseph Antho i iiv Paez, for his earnest and successful efforts to re j dnee ;he enormous and malevolent military influence which existed previous to the separation of Vene zuela from the old Republic of Colombia in 1^:50. General Paez was probably the only man who hud sufficient influence over the military to brinu it un der the subjection of the civil laws. During the existence of the Colombian Government, the mili tary and civilians were in continual broils and con tentions, in consequence of the insolent bearing of the former. Happily for the well beingand stability of the present institutions and republican form of government, the 1 irge standing army has been redu ced to a few soldiers, sufficient for garrison duty, and the due enforcement of the laws when required. In our next we shall give you an insight to the commercial affairs of this couiitry, internal itn provi ments, <Vc. Wc beg leave to cull your particular attention, and that of your readers, iii reference to the enormous import duty exacted by the Venezuelian Govern ment upon flour introduced into this country, which amouuts to upwards #4,50 of this currency per bar rel. It we are not greatly mistaken, our Charge d'Afl irs near this government, has used every effort to procure a reduction ol the duty upon the article mentioned, without a satisfactory result. It would api? r to be tin; duty of the United States Govern ment to enter into a serious discussion with this Govt anient, in order to procure a solution of this question, whether a perfect reciprocity is observed by Venezuela towards the United States. While the tuple productions of Venezuela ure principally introduced to the United States free of duty, one of our Treat articles of export is made to pay an exor bitant duty to Venezuela. Wc leurn with extreme regret, that our present Charge d'Affairs, Vespasian Ellis, Esq., is soon to return to the United Statas. This estimable gen tleman, and able minister, has gained the sympa thies of the Americans residing in this country, without exception; of the suprerce authorities, and of the respectable inhabitants of the capital. Mr. Ellis will receive proofs of the distinguished consi deration and respect in which he is held by citi zens of both countries, taking into consideration, equally, his character as a gentleman, and as a re presentative of the United States government. It is our duty to inform you of the arrival of Wil liam P. Chandler, Esq., Consul of the United States for this pert, on the lath alt. The American hertn. brig " Harp," of Baltimore, leaves to-day for Maracalbo ; American brig Wil liam P. Sumners, of Baltimore, is in port, and will sail soon for Baltimore. The Philadelphia brig " Caraccas," is expected to-morrow from La Guayra. and will, probably, proceed immediately for Philadelphia. ' Collee, 7 a 8cts.; washed coffee, 9c a 12c per lb.

The ladies of Porto Cabelfo are as beautiful as the rising sun, and delight to be honored with your attention. Nkw Orleans, July 21, 1845. Stale of things in New Orleans ? Murders, fyc. A word with you on the affairs in the " Crescent." In reading my Herald to-day, of the 12th inst., I find a letter from New Orleans, with a notice of the death of Miss Blanchard. I regret this, inasmuch as it brings this lady in connection with a woman of a very different character. It was a Rosaline Campbell who died, if you recollect, a few weeks since. She caused the death of the lamented Cres well. Miss Blanchard still lives, and the rascal Pet tiw.iy has left, 'tis said, for your good city. To what a pass have we arrived in the good city of New Orleans. Let us take a look back about six months. To commence, Hatch, in cold blood, kills young Jackson. Bruno kills an intimate, friend, directly after dining with him. Hornsbv murders the aaed Too good. Kennedy starts out to kill a man who has insulted him, meets Wait, and, by mistake, murders him. Swetzer and Pond murder Creswell. All these are lat^ occurrences; all have been tried, and, with the exception of Ken nedy, who has been found guilty, all may be met at the St. Charles. All these cases have been wilful and deliberate murder. In the case of Creswell, the jurors have met the just indignation of the pub lic. This was a concerted, cold-blooded murder. Saturday a poor fellow was found guilty of an at tempt to kill. He will get live years of Baton Rouge. The Picat/nnr, in noticing it, remarks that he should have killed his man to have escaped! The law is not with us. The troops leave us to-day for Texas. They are a remarkably fine-looking set of men. However, I do not believe they will have anything to werk upon.

Trinity Com.eoe, Hartford, July 27, 1845. Another Account of the Fight with the Faculty. I take the liberty of furnishing you with the parti culars of a serious rebellion which has just taken place in our college. Last week a procession of students was formed, in order to lay the corner stone of a new college now being? erected. In the absence of the Pre sident, (he being at Pittsfield with his daughter, lately injured on the rail-road,) the senior Professor, deeming the whole matter an irregularity, in a very hasty and |>ereniptory manner ordered the procession to stop, and the students to disperse. They, bent on the execution of their design, (that of having a little harmless sport,) refused to do so, declaring that, as the ceremony was to take place out of the hours ap propriated to study, they had a right to continue their operations, and amuse themselves as they thought fit. He however insisted upon a disconti ance of the proceedings, but they refused to comply with his command, and the corner stone was ac cordingly laid with due form. The consequence was the rustication of three or four of the leaders. The students immediately had a meeting, and re fused to recite until the others were restored. The faculty would not allow them to return until their term of rustication had expired, while the students still hold out. It is thought that the annual com mencement will have to be dispensed with.

On account of the di^a ^reeableness oi the weather, the house was not al together as crowded as on the preceding evenings, but there was, however, a very fair audience An accident, which might have had very bad conse quences, but which, fortunately, however, turned out to be only a very narrow escape, occurred during the performance. At the end of the first act, as the procession passed, "one of the horses became a little restive just as the curtain was falling, aod carried its rider rather too much in front of the stage, the curtain fell on the neck of the horse, and struck the rider also a little on the head and in the breast, b it the h' lrnet and steel breastplate which the latter wore, protected him, so that he felt the blow very slightly only. To-night will be represented for the first time, La Dame de St. Troptz, a thrill ingfjdrama, based ! on the famous Glandier tragedy, better known in this country under the name of "Trial of Madame Lal'urge for the murder of her husband." There are few of our readers who have not heard of this event, and the interest of the play must be certainly in creased by the knowledge of the real incidents on whiclt it is founded. To add to the general interest > it may be well here to mention that this play will be acted by Messrs. Montassier, Matliieu, Bernard, &c. Mile. Maria, and 'M'iries.

(Jcouriot and Messrs Douvry and Cmuriot. The success which this lively opera has met with on its first representation this season, and the talent of the three artists en gaged in it, offer, with the drama mentioned above, such an attraction as will undoubtedly secure a very large audience. Friday night, by general request, will be given La Fille du Regiment , one of the finest comic operas of Donizetti. The sprightliness of this opera, enhanced still by the spirited acting of M'lle. Calve, the delight. I'ul singer, has rendered it a very favorite one.

Constructive Larceny ? *1 No vel Cute - A curious and somewhat ludicrous scene oc curred at tho police office yesterday morning. A fat gentleman, very red in tho face, and very much excited, came putting and punting to tho bar, and enquired for the magistrate, stating that ho was tho agent lor a house in Cherry street, occupied by Patrick McDouohue and wife, who had failed iu paying the rent. They had, how ever, paid a part a few da) s previous, anil he had called that nay for tho balance. Mrs. McDonohuo, however, after informing him of thoir iu ibility to comply with the request, became so extremely voluble that the poor agent was nigh driven to distraction ?ho therefore drew from his capuc.nus pockcts two whole shillings, and lay ing it downon the table, promised to give it to the lady, on condition that she would be quiet. The la'iy took tho money, but failed to comply ? she would not be quiet, not the-, no mortal man should stop her in expressing her opinions -nor would the give up the money ; what wus to lie done? The lady's tongue went like the clack of a mill ? buzz, buzz, buzz ? whirr, whirr, whirr. Tho agent's red nose turned blue, and liis little grey eyes twinkled curiously ? he couldn't stand it though, and the lady wouldn't let him sit; so lie vanished through the door-way, tho sharp voice of Mrs. McOonohue ring ing in his ears all the way to the police oltlce, where ho came as he said for the purpose of demanding a warrant for grand larceny. The Magistrate who had listened to this story looked grave and replied--" You mean a war rant for constructive larceny." Aokftti ? No, sir, giand larceny. Magistrate. ? Weil, sir, go to that gontloman, (point ing to one of the clerks who seemed nigh bursting with laughter.) Clehk. ? (Twisting his face into a variety of shapes : anil trying to look serious.) ? Let me sec, let rue s?o ? ! this matter is of such vast, and I might say overwhelm ' iug importance, that before proceeding in the business, 1 you really must allow mo to consult Mackstone jtid 1 other eminent authors, to soe what they hare to *ay on ; the subject ? (after smothering his laughter in mndpjr 1 inusty folios) ? My opinion is, you had better consult tho I highest legal authority, and 1 would, therefore, lel'cr you to Mr. I'rice. Agent. ? Well, sir, I'll go and consult him. And so lie left the office. This morning he came ugain, and calling the Clerk on one side gravely informod him that hn had consulted Mr. I'rice, who had carefully examined Mack stone and arrived at the conclusion that nothing could he done about it, the case not being clearly defined. Ho intended, however, examining tho matter himself, a-, ho believed there must be somu law to compel the lady to keep her word and be quiet as she promised. Petit larceny.?

W? noticed, a Hay or two since, tho set/tire of a quantity ol wool, at Lowell, by an officer of the customs at this port.

The whole quantity which it is alleged has boen thus im. ported under false invoices is between <>00 and 600 bales, valued at from $7 A, 000 to $100,000. It has nearly all been seized? 300 bales having been taken in this city or Lowell, in the hands of manufacturers who had pur chased if from the importers, and the b dance in New \ ork. The principal part of the wool came to Now York, consigned to Messrs. W. W. La Forest St Co., by a foreign house. The lot that arrived here came from the same house to Messrs Barnard, Adams & Co. The fraud was first suspected in the Bostom custom house, and we believe the government officers, both here and in New Vork, are principally indebted to the vigilance and activity of S. J. Biidge, Kiq., one ol the appraiser* of this port, for the evidence upon which they havo based their proceedings against a large part of the wool seized. It is proper to add that we are Informed by one of tho parties whose names have been connect* i with the transaction that the consignees are confident that an investigation will terminate in the release ef the vool, and in the exoneration of tho foreign house implicated from suspicion of dishonesty.?
