NEW YORK HERALD. >ew 1 o. k, !tatur<l*y, Au|(uiit ?4. IMS. Oar Illustrated Weekly* The Wttkht Herald, to be issued at eight o'clock this morning, will have two spirited illustrations ot Dandyism here and at the West. They afford a Btnking contrast to each other in many respects but they have the same characteristic ot the class ? the segar. Tae ll'ttklv will also contain the fo reign news received by tho Cambria, and the most interesting intelligence ot the last week. Price MXjKnce a copy. Jlnltan !Vvwi> Very lite intelligence from Mexico, was yester day received. We giv? copious extracts and de tails on the outride. This is like all other news from that quurtcr ? valiant on paper. It does not appear, however, that the Mexicans have made any decided, or very hostile movem-.-nt against Texas ? except to authorise the raising of* small army of 20,0<xi men, and covering the house to;>s in Vera Cruz with sand ? although the fact that th?* United States intended to send her troops into that "New State," had been received in the city of Mexico. It may be that this declared intention on the |>art of our government, his of Mexico. It is apparent, never theless, that Americans are 111 worse odor than ever in Mexico, and that every petty effort will be made to annoy ihem, if nothing else is done, until we bombard our sulky neighbors into decency, it such a thing be possible. One of these petty annoy unces is described in the letter from Mazatlan given in the details ot the news. Our Pacific Sjuad ron will have that little matter to settle. The Next Presidential Succession? Move.* mentis already beginning. It is common to hear tiie remark made that it is now too early to agitata the question of the next Presidential election. But mark the men who say it, and in nine cases out of ten it will be found that they are either the sub roaa wire-workers, or their immediate instruments. The fact is, the knowing ones are already wide awake, oculis apertis it erec tisauribis, with forecasting sagacity, and far-reach ing vision, deviling all manner of subtle plans and libarynthine combinations, for the accomplishment of their own private ends. They go about their worn as sportsmen go about their betting in antici pation of some great race between celebrated blood horses. Plot is met with couuterplot, art with arti" lice, chicanery with fraud, double-dealing with tri ple-dealing, and to this there ia a rejoinder of quad ruple dealing, until even their putron,old Mr. Nicho las himself, cannot tell what will be the result? and when the denouement does take place, it astonishes all parties as much as the nomination of our present chief magistrate astonished the universe! Yankee nation. Look for instance at the present position of the democratic party. 'On the 8th of June last the leader and master spirit of this party departed this life ? his mantle he bequeathed to the people, who have not as yet seen fit to bestow it upon any one. To Thomas Hart Benton they certainly have not given it. His opposition to the annexation of Tex as virtually crushed him. It was a case of political suicide. Aaron V. Brown acted as Coroner, Ten nessee furnished the Jury, the inquest was held at Washington ? and the verdict was published in the Union, edited by Thomas Ritchie and printed upon type which had once contained the mighty spirit of Benton. The death of the Globe was the death knell of Benton, who was to that paper precisely what Andrew Jackson was to the democratic party ? its life and soul. For Mr. Pelk to live under the admi. liistration of Benton, Globe & Co., was to live in a \olcano or a furnace, under a simoon or sotocco, or in the focus of some mighty burning glass of "double million magnifying" power. But although, Mr. Ben ton is polit ically dead so far as the Presidency of the United States is concerned, it is certain if he ever livesto resume his seat again in the Senate, that he will exhibit there some of the most terrific spasmo dic convulsions that evtr the world beheld. His movements will be those of a desperate man. Polk will be the lamb to Benton's tiger. Buchanun will probably ercape by resigning in order (by arrange ment) to receive ihe nomination of Judge upon the Bench of the Supreme Court ? shelving being an easii-r denththan the lingering torture of unsuccess ful political ambition. Mr. Benton will make a mighty but unsuccessful effort to rally and reinstate himself and ride into power upon a couple of Ore gon and California hobbies. On these questions he will ta'ie bold and startling ground. The west will very likely gather around him as their champion. The vox popuh of the West will be for war. Eng. land they hate with m dice and bitterness which are always nourished and freshened in the popular mind by numerous exasperating stories of British and Indian cruelties and outrages during the last war. The belligerent fuel is very dry and combustible. They love a fight. They have a passion for adventure There is no mark like an Indian or a British Hudson Bay hunter to practise at with the rifle. They believe that Oregon is ours by right? but right or wrong they will appropriate and possess it. California is better than Oregon, and San Francisco better than the mouth of the Columbia. Approximation within ten miles is " crowding" the settler, and he strikes his tent, shoulders his rifle and moves off where he has " more room." Even the women love the ex citement which hangs around the uncertainty, whether the husband, or brother, or son, who went out to hunt in the morning will ever return again alive. From a border State, and from amid such a people will come Mr. Benton to take his seat in the Senate of the United States. But although he may nway the "hards" of Missouri, he cannot sway the Union. The guillotine which slew Benton, Van Buren, and the Globe, though not aimed at Silas Wright, still sorely wounded him. While the people will never forget Van Buren's anti-annexation letter, and | Benton's anti-annexation speeches, they will also re member that Mr. Wright declined the Vice Presi dency because he floated in the same boat and upon the same current with Mr. Van Buren. Mr. Van Buren, to our certain knowledge is not only alive, but in thi? political field. He is the first choice of his friends ? Silas Wright the second. What are Blair, Rives and Riell about 1 What is to be done within the walls of Jackson Halll Are the wire-workers all asleep 1 It is too early , it, to agitate the ques t ion for succession 1 We affirm that there is already forming for the succession an organization more deep, subtle, cunning, adroit, powerful and masterly than has ever before been seen in this country. The great fight will be upon the mode of electing Dele gates to a Mational Convention. On this sublet we shall have more to say hereafter? and con" elude this article with the remark that a Baltimore National Convenion, whig or democrat, elects ie President of the United States. Characteristics of the Nations,? Nearly one third of Pittsburg was destroyed by fire last April, and now, only four months after, three fourths of the burnt district iscovered with splendid new build ings. Three hundred buildings were burnt down in this city on the 19th of last month, and now, two weeks after, three thousand men are actively em* ployed in clearing away the ruins, preparatory to re building, and fifty or sixty contracts are already made for new stores. On the 2Sili of May and 28th of June, one half of Quebec was destroyed by ffre and now, six weeks after, scarcely anything has' been done to erect new buildings in the place o' those burned. Ths News by thk Cambria. ? In addition to the exertions of the agents of the News Room in Bos ton and to Mr. Lee, the merchants of this city are indebted to Mr. L. Tucker, jr., the enterprising con ductor of the Providence and Boston Railroad, for the early receipt of paper.--, by the Cambria. Mr. Tucker is never behind. Modern Administration of Criminal Law ? A Mkw Resolution? Fkkroom op the Press. ? The bllowing curious and extraordinarynoticewus hand *J to all the |iolice re|H>rters at'the Tomb# yesterday Dominion their application as usual to the police lerks for pa|iers. It will undoubtedly be read with nucli interest by the community, as it certainly was iy us, being, as we conceive, a very rich, spicy, and unny document, which deserves to be framed and lung up in the " halls," which some inveterate wag las wittilv named "justice." It read as follows: ? " tleiolved. That 110 p*per?, in ca*ei of folony, be ;iven to the reporter* or an> other persoua." This sublime and highly interesting resolution, he offspring of those " stars of legal profundity" ? the magistrates? was concocted in solemn and se cret conclav on Wednesday, and will undoubtedly l?e the means of transmitting the names of its illus trious and sagacious authors down to posterity. Im mortality they sought, and immortality shall be theirs, it will be perceived that the word " felony" embraces a vast nomenclature of offences touching public safety, and of which the public, who might be presumed to be somewhat interested in the mat ter, are entirely precluded by this order from re ceiving knowledge of, until th?* report of a trial in the premises. Among others, felony embraces the following crimes of high magnitude : ? Murder, minslaushter, burglary, grand larceny, forgery, counterfeiting, robbery, perjury, subornation of per jury, assisting escapes from States' Prison, ifcc. The object which the framers of this remarkable document, therefore, had i.i view, was to exclude from the public all informatien concerning the com mittal of crime in this metropolis. And here we would inform the uninitiated, that all examinations in these cases are strictly private? held in the " star chamber," where no " reporter or other person" is admitted. The reporters have, however, for the last twelve years had free access to all papers, affidavits, and examinations, and furnished our citizens with prompt and correct information on a subject so near ly concerning the safety, life, and property of every individual in the community. For the suppression of crimc, and punishment of otlenders, the people have long sustained highly expensive, though not a'ways the most efficient establishments, and they claim a right to know in what manner their paid servants act, and ought to be informed of the nature and character of the various transactions which are hourly transpiring under the sanction of law. These wise and learned sages, however, have decided otherwise, and henceforth murder and rob bery may stalk abroad unchecked. JNo warning must be given ? no examples published which might deter others; for it is a notorious fact, that many reckless and evil men have been deterred from the commission of crime through fear of exposure in the public journals. The people, however, must rest sa tisfied, and, upon the whole, will no doubt be highly pleased with the decision and its results? this se cond edition of "high life below stairs," But to be serious. This resolution undoubtedly would lead to many barefaced frauds were it not that we are fortunately blessed at present with spe cial Justices of the mo*t pure and untarnished char aete? men selected solely from a knowledge of their enlarged capacities ;.nd peculiar fitness for the office, without the slightest reference to low, debas. ing and grovelling, political intrigue? men who are renowned for their honesty, worth, candor, integ rity, civility and uprightness? men who, like the wife of the immortal C?sar, are not only pure, but unsuspected. Bat, though with such virtuous men there may be no danger in the administration of public justice being at once secret and mysterious ? let us see if a state of things might not exist which would render such a course highly prejudicial to the public interest. Suppose tiiut our bench of Justices, instead of be ing men not only most purely honorable, but in fact immaculate, were composed of characters of indiffer ent reputation ? of men dragged without any decent ustification from the impure kennel of some iow political clique, and whose moderate elevation only rendered the odor of their reputation more obnoxious ? or of men whose whole lives had been p issed amid the festering impurities of a badly organized police, and whose frequent contact with felons had imbued with rather a sympathy for, than abhorrence of crime. Might not the secresy now adopted by " star clumber"' examinations afford the most gros8 opportunities of abuse 1 The most notorious felons, by such men, might be discharged for a considera tion in the shape of g?ld, and th^ public kept in ig norancs of the cause. The impunity of crime might i>e secured by the liberation of the offender, and the public, who pay dearly for protection, become the double prev of those who live by the commission of crime, and those who are paid for its prevention a id detection. This fiiciure is not surcharged? its j istification will be found in all countries where the secret system prevails. la the monarchical governments of Kngland and France, where it might be least expected, the de tection and publicity of crime are almost simulta neous; and so far from the magistrates putting any obstacle in the way of such publicity, they court and encourage it? satisfied that their own integrity is best preserved by public scrutiny ; and it certainly should be the boast of all countries, where free in stitution*, prevail, that the administration of justice is unconcealed, oj>en and unequivocal. It is high time that the paid servants of the public, should learn to keep their masters advised of their pro ceedings. These remarks are pursued with a view to what might occur under a less pure administration, than that which obtains at our lower police office. As that office is at present constituted, the only in convenience the public can suffer, is the deprivation of intelligence at once useful and necessary. But for the future let us beware. In conclusion, or.? word to the reporters. They are a gentlemanly and indefatigable set of men, who work early and late for the benefit of the community ; let them insist upon the:r rights, act in concert, and they shall yet I be victorious. Mork Reform r.\ hie Naval Ofj-ick. ? Admiral Hoffmxn has furnished another evidence of his in. tention to reorganize his oin??. lie intends to make hi< ollice a perfect check and auditing otfice of the Collector's accounts, and at the same time to fa cilitate the business of merchants. Yesterday he gave notice to his remaining Deputy, Morgan L Ogden, brother of the Auditor in the Collector's of fice, that he wasn't wanted any longer; and a no tice of the saiue tenor to Win. 11. Cooke, one of his clerks ? both whigs. In the places of those removed, he his appointed Leonard I/ee, Ltq. formerly a well known locofoco barn-burner of the eighth ward in this city, and more recently a representative from Orange county in the Assembly. Mr. Cockle, Export Clerk, has has been promoted to the Deputyship. Stephen Pa ret, who was formerly a clerk in the Collector's of fice, removed by Curtis, of the third ward, ap pointed in place of Cockle. Mr. Pentz promoted to Auditor's department, and Charles B. Battelle ap pointed Cashier's Clerk. In place of Dr Bailey, removed, he has appointed a gentleman from Her kimer county. The Trinity College Riot. ? We received two letters apparently written by different |<ersons, giv ing the particulars of a riot at Trinity College, Hartford. One was anonymous, and the other was signed by Jas. T. Williams It appears that there was no disturbance among the students. Pennsylvania on iikr Pin*. ? We are glad to learn that Pennsylvania has again met her interest, 'othe amount of #S0O,OOO; and yesterday |>aid the ?une, as an honest State should. Pennsylvania Ite ms to take high rank ag.iin. Steam Shii- Bangor? This new steamer, built of ron, propelled by a submerged screw, and with uee masts, arrived here yesterday, and astonished i on th? llatt'vy wuli her skilful maiNBUvre in j harbor. She is bound to Bangor. A Make's Nfst ? Idi.k StjUAi b -inh ? Some halt dozen of the city lepers, including the 7Vi bum, Morning A ku t, Exprttt, Evening, Mirror, 4r< ?, are di it tooth and nail, the cause of the dispute be ing clurges of mutual theft which they are bringing against each other. If it but ended in a similar manner to the dispute of the Kilkenny cats, there would be more cause for gratification than there is at these wrangling*. As it is, it is quite t.musing to hear them blackguard each other, and suggestive i i the hojie that honest people will come to their own, according to the old adage. There is not a word however spoken of all the pir.igraphs stolen by each .tad every one of tlu-m in their turn from the He mid. We should not be at all surprised to learn that th- scutlle is entirely got up to cover the iniquity they are guilty of in stripping us of the credit of col lecting news at an exj>enditure of labor and money, tuch us is altogether a stranger to them ; but this ruse will not do. The Expre** undoubtedly has act ed, as it always does, most shabbily in taking away whole columnstfrom the EvenmgMirror. Perhaps, if the Exprtsa were indicted for larceny, it would ar gue thit there was not a known \alue attached to the commodity taken, which the law prescribes as necessary to the commission of the crime of larce ny, ro'.ibery, ifcc. But this would hardly be a valid plaa. We would counsel the Expre.i* not t*> rely on their worthlessneEs as a ground of impunity in lilchinv too much. Altogether this fracas is a most ludicrous all'air. And yet there are some who think that papers ought to have some object very different from personal abuse, and an indulgence in topics which are evi dently only calculated to minister to vanity and con ceit. The Tribune says its circulation is larger than the Exprtu, the True Sun defies the Tribune to compare dimensions, and incontinently lets bang by defyinR the Tribune to take up the chal lenge of its door neighbor. Is it not excruciating'? Since the days of the never to be forgotten trian gular duel, described by that common loafer Marryatt, there has been nothing like the quarrel we daily witness between these eminent prints, whose "cry is still for war." "Whose afraid 1" Polly Bodink ? The Board of Supervisors have unnecessarily delayed action on the subject of the bills of expenditure in the case of the late trial of this unfortunate woman. The Committee to whom the matter was referred, moved to have it submitted to the consideration of the Comptroller and Counsel of the Board. The police officers who were occu pied during this tedious trial, have been kept out of their pay up to this remote date. The officers ought to be paid forthwith, as they well earned their pay, being kept continually on duty from ten o'clock A.M. until ten at night. The consideration of this subject was referred back to the Committee, who ought, in all conscience to report forthwith, as the officers should at all events to be paid. Monster Steam Ship Geeat Britain. ? This mammoth of the deep is now in her seventh day from Liverpool. When the Cambr'a sailed, she had quite a freight and a good many passengers engaged. She will probably arrive next Thursday or Friday. Theatrical*. Park Theatre. ? M'lle. D'Angeville was repre sented last night, as had been announced, and once more the audience fell a crying with laughter, at the wit of the vaudeville, and the talent with which it was acted. There, as when it was first played here, M'me. Cccuriot was overwhelmed wiih well deserved applause, and the spirited manner with which she personified M'lle. D'Angeville was such as to leave no room for criticism. Mr. Muthieu was again the highly talented comedian we have always acknowledged him to be, and had his full share in the success of the performance. M'lle. Eug6nie, the interesting young artist, had, unfortunately for her and for ourselves, a very small part to play in this vaudeville; we regret it the more, that 111 seve ral playj in which shu acted parts of more impor tance, M'lle. Eugenie has displayed much tact and alcnt. Mr. Jules acted again very well the part of Pele$rin, this was at the first representation of this vaudeville, ihe first time we had seen Mr. Jules act in a part of any consequence; we saw him two nights ago in one of still more importance, that of Antoir.e, in " la Dame de St. Tropes," and he ac quitted himself in a h mdsome style. Mr. Oter not, who acted also last night, proved himself, as he always does, an actor of talent as a comedian. "La Fill e du Regiment" came afterwards, and Marie, (Mile. Calve) was as lively, spirited, and full of feeling, according to the occasion, as she has always been in all the opera3. We have said before, and repeat it here again, none can surpass, nay, equal M'lle. Calv? in (his play, and this opinion was that of the whole audience last night, as was testified by the repeated applause that welcomed her acting.? Mr. CoBuriot acted the part of Tonio, and sang it with the talent which every one agrees in conceding to him. The d ito between h>m and M'lle Calv6, was sung by both with unsurpassed skill. We must not lorget to mention Mr. Bernard, (Sulpice,) nor Mr. M.tthieu, (IlTirtensius,) who also performed their parts wiih very great talent. The first representation of La JIuette de Porlici, is announced for next Monday night. This opera is said to be the rhef d'auvre d'Anber ; and to judge by its European reputation, wiil be well worth the attention of the public. M'mes Casini, and Stephen Caeuriot, and Messrs. Garry, Ca'uriot, Bernard and Buscher, are to appear in the principal parts. M'me CoBuriot in M'lle D'Angeville, and M'lle Calv? in ''La Fille du Regiment, were called out after the performance. Niblo's Garden. ? Continued success crowns the efforts of the management here. This season has been by far the best of a Ion? list of never-failing campaigns. Placide is now the presiding genius of the place, and truly no better artist can be found, for lie draws admirably. Mr. P. 's Michael Perrin was justly appreciated and loudly applauded. To-night he plays Hannibal Fuzee and Mr. Dulcimer Pipes, two characters in which he excites the risibility of Ins auditors in first-rate style. Monday, we learn, is to be a grand gala night for Mr. Chippendale's benefit. W. E. Burton, H. Placide, Brougham, and a host of talent, appear in a popular comedy, and Fra Diavolo is to be repeated ? Mrs. Timm, Miss Taylor, Mr. Roberts, Mr. Den ni son, S. Pear son, Clarke, Arc., &c., being included in the cast. Edge has^also volunteered a splendid piece of fire works. It will be a great night, and no mistake. Castle Garden.? To night the Ellsler Brothers appear again, whose surprising performance, with the overture to "La Reine deChypri, and "I^e Che valde Bronze," and dances and songs by artists of great abilities, will afford quite a fine series cf amuse ments. VaUXHall Garden. ? This garden seems to be n favorite plncc of resort for the up-town folks, who gather nightly by hundreds in this placc of amuse . ment. The Ethiopian Serenfcdcrs, under the direction of S. A. Dumbolton, Esq , of l);ihimore, have recently given three concert* at Newport, two at the Atlantic, iind one at the Ocean Hoiks The concerts were libe rally patroni/od, especially by the summer visiters, ami tnoi-e who were present appeared to lie very much plead ed with the amusements. They ne\t intend viaiting Kail River and New Bedford. During the | erformance of the ?erond part of the concert at the Ocean Mouse, on Tues day evening, a rumbling crash was heard, which caused some alarm among tliu audience. It proved to be the nortlieaat part of the piaz/.a, whi -h being crowded with lookers in and listeners, gave way for about fifteen I'eet, dropping down, not the rnoit gently, about forty or fifty of both sexes, some four or Ave feet Happily no bone1; wore broken -a few arratchea, and tattered garments merely, were the only bad results. A Pleam'rb Party. ? The steamer Delaware which started on a pleasure excursion to West Print on Monday morning at S o'clock, ran on the bar near Newark Hay, and lay there until reloaned by the tide be tween one and two o'clock.

Celebration mf West India K mancipation. La.-! night a large. meeting mostly of colored j?eo le tuck, place in Crotwi Hull, in honor of the Anni .'ersary t>f the Abolition of iSlavery in the British Vest Indies. The usual degree of tardiness in oming together was visible, and it was half jmst 8 efore tliere was any stir mnong them towards be ginning the exercises. Although the call was ad Iressed to the colored citizens, there was a good number of whites in attendance, some of them aj>. i>areni!y of the clsrgy. At length, i\lr. Powell, a colored gentleman, announced the lour of commencing the exercises as arrived, at half |ut.-t * o'clock, prayer was ottered up and a por tion ot scripture read, after which, by the ununimoue ?vish < i the meet ins, Mr. Albkbt Vtitui took the chair and said that the ?ccasion was a must glorious and august ouo. far eclips ing the sun in brilliancy, and the waves of the ocean in force. It was lifting that all should lejoice, but especial ly the .sons of Africa, who constituted the majority of iliat meeting. It was natural for men to rejoice at bless ing* of all kind* ; so it was for them to glory in the emancipation of HOO.OOO men in the West Indies. The page ot history detailed accounts of emancipation of men? of brave men by sanguinary deeds, but such a .?ase as the present had no parallel, either in extent or i lie peaceful manner of its accomplishment. A wave of freedom was coining across the Atlantic to bless thou sands; let them cheer it; it was for them to oxult in its approach to bless this now enslaved country. The Chaikmak here arose and said that it was a meet ing a lapted to the spontaneous expression of feeling, s ml intended to be so ; therefoie, lie hoped all would come forward freely, without particular invitation ; and as it was lute, he would recommend speakers to con fine themselves to 10 or IS minutes each. A gentleman stepped foiward and drew the notice of the audience to a couple of articles which appeared iu some of the city papers, as worthy of the attention of friends of emancipation ; also to accounts he lately had from the West Indies, as well as Ohio, of events well pleasing to the friends of the cause. He could, if it did not rei;niro too much time, state a great variety of inci dents, ;;oing to show the rapid progress of the auti-sla vory cause. There wero some things to deter, such as the annexation of Texas, but he had strong ground for believing that they would live to yet colebrate te eman cipation of the slaves of Amorica. Mr IIammelto* (colored), on invitation, lung an emancipation song, prefacing it with a few apologetic remarl.s. It was called " The Slave Mother." .Mr. Van Ranssalakr arose and said it was worth while to inquire why there was more sympathy shown tor the West India slaves than those of Americ a? Why there was more joy shown at their emancipation than those of New York? The fact waa, the slaves of the West Indies were really free and equal, while here they were so only in name. There was not a single case of perfect freedom here ; no, not even in Massachusetts. Those of the West Indies are really emancipated, and they could heartily join and rejoice at that event, which government was compelled to bring about by the pres sure from without. Thouspnds of colored men, who were liable to be sold as common chattels, like a barrel of molasses or a hogshead of rum, were restored to equality and the dignity of man's nature. Although it was true that governments act upon a wrong principle ; they could be forced to aid the cause of justice and religion. To realize all the sympathy that should be manifested for the sufferings ol the slave, it would re quire one to be in the same situation? but it was practi cable and meet to rejoice on the 1st of August, and in doing so recal the case of the threo millions of slaves who groan in this country. There might be some there who could not understand how many three millions were? he would explain? it was just about as many as there were letters in that Bible. Yes, there were as manv colored people in chains in America as there were let ters in that blessed book. He would ask them to double their diligence ; to remember that from 60 to 70,000 slave children are born each year in the United States. He wanted them to feel in regard to them as if we white men were confined in Algiers. Let it go down into their hearts, and rest in their breasts, until the last link fell f rom the limbs of the slave. He would speak a little of the institutions of this republican countrv. They were as good as he wanted, because they were republican? but he never would bo reconciled to slavery. (Cheers.) Never, so long as there was a Southern planter's heel on the neck ot a slave. (Cheers.) If he wanted to ex press his views in a few words, he would quote from one of the greatest and purest of men, William Lloyd Garri son. (Cheers.) The speaker quoted at length from the person named, and concluded by offering the following preamble and resolutions : Whereas, an unjustifiable feeling exists against the free people of color among our white fellow-citizens : And whereas, we have resolved to use overy means in our power to disabuse the public mind, and prove to our fellow-citizens we are loyal subjects and good citizens, ami deserve to enjoy equal rigiits and privileges with themselves? therefore, Resolved, As a last resoft, that a committee of three be appointed, to draw up an address to the people of the United States, and an appeal to their patriotism and sense of justice, in behalf of ourselves and our enslaved bro thren. Resolved, That when these moral means have failed to produce the desired eflects, it will become a serious and solemn question for us to cousider whether it is not our duty to seek an asylum in another country, where we can enjoy equal rights and privileges as other men. A quaker here arose, and ot?erved he did not think tlie resolutions judicious. This was the proper country of our colored citizens, and they had us good a right to it as others, and they sliould nut forsake it to look for another, but look out for a full redress of their griev ances, which surely would yet take place. Another member added that as the resolutions had not been seconded, he would reserve any remarks ho woulu otherwise have taken occasion to niako. Mr. JOHHSTOT then proceeded to give a graphic ac count of the agitation in lavor ol, and final triumph and lesnlts of emancipation in the West Indies, and was lis tened to with keen interest. He was followed by seve ral other speakers, but little was said possessing the me rit of novelty. A piece ol voca! music followed, and then a collection was taken up. The meeting separated with singing the "old hundred, "and a benediction. Jlurcmi'iits of Travellers. The travelling mania is still on the increase?

New Yorkers in the Couwtr*. ? At this season of the < ear, when ao many of our fellow citizens are absent njoying themielvea (?) in the couatry, it has often truck ua as being aomewbat singular, that grave, le ious men, who, daring the winter and spring months, ,>*as their days so methodically in the oxercite of their . arious professions, and whe are so regular in the laying ut of the hours that business allows them to spend vith tbeir families, should so simultaneous!) give up all 'heir fixed habits, and content themselves with the vari ? us inconveniences and; disagreeables attendant on ? ountry residence. Not that a country life, when such * chosen as permanent, is by any means unpleasant: ut still we cannot <!euy, that to a citizen, accustomed o city life, the usual meur.s adopted to amalgamate, at t were, a city and country life for the summer weeks, annot but bo uncomfortable. BuC?o it|is? custom and uhion have declared that during certain weeks, it is ibsolutely necessary for every family to remove, ami nan, being an imitative animal, every one follows his loighbor'a example. And there is not u village, or carcely a farm bouse, within reach of New York, that < not run down by anxious New Yorkers and their fam lies; and each one, ax ho secures a place, inwardly tri imphs over his less fortunate acquaintance. Karly in be spring, the good lady of the family commences her curtam lectures, with " Where shall we go this summer, ny dear > the children, poor things, will want fresh air. dr. So and So. next door, has already determined to .eave town. You really must go over to Long Island, and tind some pleasant place lor us. You know where .ve were last rummer, the children got the fevor and ague You weie worried to death with the inconven ient hours at which the boat left town, aud I got quite sick with vexation at the overcharges those people made us, and at seeing you so troubled with your business, which you wore obliged to neglect, in order to bo with us every evening; in fact, you spent all your time on board that odious boat, going up and down. This sum mer, you must manage better." So the poor man has to cudgel his bruins, as to where they can go and enjoy hemselvea again; und when ut last everything is arranged, away tliey go lock up their town house, leave 'heir pleasant rooms, good furniture, and well regulated louseliold, and bury themselves in some out of the way arm house, where they pay as much almost as tliey would ut a lirst rate hotel, and, withal, count it4a great ' ivor that burly Farmer Jones receives them at all. The poor man has to travel up to town, and back again every day ? the good lady is crammed, with three of the chil dren, into u small room, wliero they aie balf stilled; in, fact, the whole family are driven to the verge of distrac tion ? tlieir nurse leaves them, because she cannot agree with the people of tho house ? the children stulf themselves with unripe fruit, and fall sick, and the coun try doctor makes a line harvest off them ; yet all is boine, because 'tis tho summer, and we must be in the country. While they are thus enjoying themselves, affairs go on somewhat slipshod; business is somewhat neglected; some polite burglars, anxious to survey their town house, without disturbing the inhabitants, visit it during their absence, and make off with all they can lay hold of: and, perhaps, to cap the climax, a fire hap pens in their vicinity, and, as the papers oxpress it, No. JO win slightly daniuged with waterjwhich means, that the family find their cellar and basement flooded, their windows'broken, the papering of the house destroyed and furr iture spoiled; and this last catastrophe brings tliemback, in full force, to reorganize their household. This, perhaps, may be a somewhat exaggerated account of the mishaps incident to a country visit; but still, we cannot help thinking that thoso who take it coolly, and remain in town during summer, are tho wisest in the end. The shady sido of Broadway, in the morning, is certain ly as pleasant as a dusty road in the country; an excur sion up the North river, or down the Bay in a well ap pointed steamboat, as delightful as a jaunt in a jolting farm wagon, grudgingly lent or hired at an extravagant price; and a cool house, with every convenience, a* i iiropoa to the warm weather, as somo warm, little coun try house, whose frame sides are such excellent absor ! era of heat, that they never let any out after it has once got in? still the majority think different, chacun a sou ?.out. Give us the city, yet, in preference to the various blandishments of the country. Condition ok tiik Streets. ? The side walk of Broad way, on the four shilling side, wants, in many places, immediato repairing, and the owners or occupants oughtto be answerable for sprained ankles and spoiled dresses. The proper officers ought also to see that the side walks to our different markets and great steamboat landings are kept free from the daily and weekly ob structions and nuis ances that afllict the pedestrians of this city. Cuaious Bbt^Dccidkd. ? A number of merchants being at dinner somo days since, one of them made a bet that lie could point out SO carts without numbers in the course of an hour. Tho party accordingly took their station ut the window, and 73 city carts without numbers, were distinctly counted in one hour ; 1H carta in the same time passed with numhe' s so indistinct that they could not be road, and some bad liorse feed bags over tho number, so us to hide it effectually. Tho bet was made in conse qucuce ef an Ex-Alderman asserting, that the Mayor had enforced the law, and compelled all the carts to be num bered. The only way to enforce the low, is to direct the police to report all delinquents. Magnetic Telegraph. ? Posts for the Magnetic Tele graph to rua through the city, are now erected on itroadway. They are twenty feet in height, and have been laid as far up as Spring street. Fire ? Bo ween 10 and 11 o'clock Thursday night, a I fire broke out in a grocer's store, at tho corner of Hotter | and Orange streets, which was speedily extinguished by the prompt attendance of the fire companies. The loss sustained was very trifling. Another.? About the same hour a fire took place in a I feed store, ut the corner of Pitt and Broome streets; but j was also extinguished as speedily, with scarcely any loss. The Hall bell did not ring As the steamboat Wave was coming up last nigh1 from Coney island, '*bout tho eentroof the upper bay, h young man uhunt twenty-six years of age, lump d Michael | Fash, ton of J.

It is believed that in falling ho struck the wheel with his head, and sank immediately More Goi.i> Found.? Eighty-nine sovereigns, two half sovereigns, and two balf eagles, were found yesterday concealed under tho dock at Peck slip, by officer Floyd and others. This and the $3,000 found tho day before, is probably the money stolen on board the Champion. UonnrRv. ? On Thursday afternoon, about 'J o'clock, the houses No. 18.5 and "Jlti Cherry street, were robbed of a quantity of clothing, jewelry, and evory article which was practicable to carry oft, aud which was not discovered until tho robbers were detected in tha house ?.'?28, by the .soi vant of tho house, who was in the attic story when the robbers walked up utairs ; whereupon the girl inquiring who they wanted, received for answer they were looking for ".Mrs. Smith.-' They were at - swered in the no{,'"tivo by the servant as to such a per{ son as Mrs. S. residing in tiie house, when they, with as much sangfroid ns it tlioy had beon inmates ol the estab lishment, wished her a good morning, and departed. It was afterwards ascertained that this daring outrage committed and what mokes the affair still more daring, being within IS or -JO yards of tho police station. Board of Supervisors ? August 1 ?

Alderman Char lick objcctol to any changes in the pleadings. Charges were made, and it remained for | parties accusing to prove them. The charges were de nied generally by the respondent. Dr. Uees read a written reply to tho allegations against him by the petitioners, wfiich contained a mere reiterationof his already published statements in rela tion to the use of the bible in tho public schools. Dr. R. stated that he would be prepare'! to show that Bishon Hughes, Drs. Power and Pise, were perfectly satisfied with his administration in relation to reading the Bible m the Public Schools. These latter Reverend gentle men, he continued, perfectly approved of the use of the Doway edition of the Bible in Public School* for the de nomination of christians under their guidance and con trol. Dr. 11. continued, that all tho ward officers treated ii im with uniform courtosy, save Stephen Ilasbrouok ond fleorge Weir. Mr. Krtchum osked to have the answer of Dr. Rees placed on file.

Mr. Rees told witness, that if the Bible wns not read in the school, we would not get our money I told him we would take no action on tha subject I)r.

I a red with the stock investments of other countries. The bankruptcy that has overtaken many of the States of this Union will ultimately have a favorable effect upon the whole. The delinquency of a few has operated as a chock upon the others, and compelled them to pause in the financial policy they were pursuing. Had the extra' vngant expenditures made for several years by many Of the States, been continued a little while longer, or had not some of them been overtaken with insolvency as they were, many of the States that have, by the most rigid economy, and an abandonment of expenditures upon t ieir public works, been able to promptly meet the in' mrest un their debts, would have become bankrupt and fallen with the others. A few were sacrificed to preserve the rest. Had the States of New York and Ohio gone o* liut a short time longer in the course they were pursuing when the revulsion camo that swept away those of lass ? trength and mora limited resources, they must inevita bly have been swallowed up in the storm, and have ranked with Pennsylvania, Maryland, and other delin quent States.
