NEW YORK HERALD New York, Friday, Aujcunt 8, The Weekly Hernia. This publication will be issued at 8 o'clock to morrow morning li will have two beautiful illustrations ? one a bal room scene at a fawhionable watering place, anil the oiher a scene tram Ia? Huguenott, a magnificent opera to be produced this evening at the Park. Il inay also contain the news by the Great Britain. Single copies sixpence each. Steamship Great Britain. The desire to see this monstrous sieamer is on the increase in this city. She was yesterday seve ral times reported as telegraphed, and hundreds ran to the Buttery to see her puss up the river : but she ' 1 not yet made her appearance. This is her thir teenth day, if she sailed on the 2Wtli ult. The Whiff Newspaper Press of New York We give, on our first page, a number of extracts, il lustrative of the tone and character of a discussion, at present goini; on with amusing vehemence, be tween two of the organs ol the whig |?irtv in this city. The whole oontrorersy has been particularly rich in developments of the morals and decency of the whig press. We hardly know which most to admire, the vulgar .-currility of the Hxpr m, or the sly infidelity of the Tribune. It is, however, a very pretty quarrel as it stands, and is important chiefly as suggestive of interesting reflections on the pro. gress which infidelity and ull sorts of revolutionary liltraisms are at present making in this country. The truth is, we are now in the midst of a move, ment very similar to that which marked the French Revolution alter the execution of the ill-starred King. In this country, indeed, the movement h much slower in its progress. In France, what with the ignorance of the popular musses, their excitable character, und the attractive novelty of the ideas put forth by the demagogues, the events which make up the history of that memorable e|>och, resembled more the explosions of gunpowder than the natural operation of social and intellectual transitions. Here the progress is slow ? steady ? less startling ? and founded on general principles, that without j alirming die fears of the timid, yet give to it ini|>e. J tusand importance. This very discussion amongst i the whig journals of this city, is one of the most re- I markable and humiliating features ol the age. Here is ajournal.the TVi/mm, acknowledged to l>e the lead ing whig organ of this section of the country, becom ing also the principal vehicle for the dissemination and advocacy of all those ultra notions and views which seek the overthrow of all the present systems of government and laws, the institutions tinder which we live, and the holy religion we profess. In this movement, the reckless spirit of infidelity and revo lution has associated with itself newspapers and communities and establishments throughout the free States, and is now seeking to bind up in the same purpose the abolition movement whicW has re cently received a Iresli impetus by the establishment of a peculiar organ by Cassius M. Clay 111 Ken tucky. The squabble between the Erpnss and Tribune, although presenting many ridiculous features, is yet not w ithout its interest. It discovers in a very sig nificant manner the bitterness of that factious spin ( which has broken up the whig p irty in this region into opposing fragments and ckqws. In the contro versy, there is doubtless mixed up a great deal of l?ersonal ill-will and business rivalry, but still the vehement manner in which ihe Exjims denounces what it very properly designates " the infidelity of the Tribune ," shows that a powerful feeling ol indignation has been awakened in the whig ranks against the course of the Fourier organ. We are, in fact, as is clearly apparent from this discussion and many other indications, in the very midst of a social revolution, the results of which no one can now predict with accuracy. Its progress, how ever, is marked by signs and token:- -ulliciently me nacing. The State Convent ion about to be held, and! the appeal to the j>eople at the ballot-boxes in sup port or against that Convention, are also connected with this movement. If ever there was a time when the conservative influences of true philosophy and enlightened patriotism were wanted, this is the time. Infidelity is rearing its head in triumph ? the wild and visionary theorist, the reckless sceptic, the raving fanatic, the insane revolutionist, are all busy and uniting their forces together, aided beyond their most sanguine desires by a press which is recog. nized as the organ of a |?owerful political |>arty, and if not timeously restained, this general movement will end in some euch terrible disasters as marked the era of the French lievoluiion Law of Libel. ? Some of our contemporaries have recently been discussing the law of libel in tins .State, which they assail in no measured terms, as unjust and defective in the extreme. Now, the simple fact is, that all the mysteries, and injustice, and hardship of the law of libel in this State have been introduced by the ignorance and laziness o' the lawyers employed to conduct libel suits. In every case, civil and criminal, the truth can be giv en in evidence, provided the pleadings are managed according to law, and with such attention and skill as to compel the Judges to observe the law. All the decisions complained of by Greely, Webb, and Weed, were, as we have learned from the most in telligent lawyers, the result of the inattention and ignorance of the lawyers employed to defend the lite suits, who neglected to press the right to give ihe truth in evidence. The great source of the evils complained of is in the want of a knowledge of what is called special pleading on the part of ihe lawyers who undertake 10 defend libel suits. In many instances, it is true, interior Judges have decided contrary to law ; and we have had recently in the inferior Courts ol this city, several cases of petty libel suils, in which the Judges have made erroneous decisions, which will be reviewed by superior tribunals, and the Judges, both of ward Courts and the Marine Court, who have exhibited their ignorance, will be taught a bit ter lesson when the cases are reviewed. The law ?t libel in ibis State, then, is not at all, in our judg ment, in the condition represented by the Tribune and other papers whose lawyers have been lazy or too ignorant to conduct their cases with the proper degree of skill and attention. New Way to get into Office. ? W? give in another column a communication from Mr Edward Sanford denying that he has had any connection with the movement to get up a new democratic p:j[? r.? The fact is, we believe, that no such paper will be started at all at all, the announcement being merely a rut* on the part of Slumm for the purpose of driving the administration into giving him an office, ft succeeded ndmirably. Mr. Slamm has been appoint ed " despatch agent," a snug berth? nothing to do? t lary fifteen hundred n year, besides pickings and Healings li is astonishing how effectually office hunting sharpens a man's ingenuity. The success of Slamm will doubtless stimulate many others to the udoption of the same admirable i:ir-ncs \V< \]>po.-e that the next new pa|>er will be announced by Mr. iiirll who is now in Washing ton Let him instanif r issue the prospectus of " The Democratic Scremmer and Jefferson inn Whip," to be issued on the 1st ol September next, and " to l>? devoted to the advocacy of genuine democracy in opposition to the weak and vacillating course of the present administration," and we will not be afraid to wager a bottle of root-beer thai he will H c,)0. Fiilship, or who knows but he may oust the present Collector of this port ? I >o try it Mr. Ifiell, and do tr),it all ye patient suflerers, who daily knock at the j-.ite, and cry aloud for the reward of your faith and labors. We have a large establishment where all descriptions of job-printing are executed with neat ness and desjiatch and on the most reasonable terms, and we are prepared to print any quantity of prosjiec tu>es, as fiercely, vehemently, screamingly demo cratic rh any oflice-beggar desires. So, gentlemen, t*nd on your orders I Off ics of Rcetsrts 01 this < i+v -The pollti* ? ; rial cauldron, containing thu office, iiW already be " gun to bubble, bubble, toil and trouble, and the am . i bilious aspirants may be found in midnight conclave, preparing elements to secure their nomination by . the two great iwrties of the day. The candidates | among the democracy arc tar more numerous than I in the wine ranks, owing to the fact that success with them is considered more certain. Among the prominent in the ranks of the former, stands Henry Arcuiaritu, who has long been employed in one of the prominent clerkships of the office under the present jwpnlar incumbent Next on the list stands Samuel Osgood, formerlyDeputy County Clerk. Then John J. Westervelt, late Deputy Sheriff, and present Assistant Alderman of the Sixteenth Ward; also Alderman Seaman, of th? Sixteenth Ward; George S. Mann, Thomus Connor, of the Seventeenth ; Alderman Briggs, present Deputy Surveyor ; ex- Alderman Pentz, of the Fourth Ward ; ex-Aklerman Emmans of the Sixth, and Aldermun Charlick of the First. Arcularius will receive the almost undivided support of the ardent and really honest "Young Democracy," and thus secure a fair portion of the delegates ap|H>inted to make the nomi nation. Osgood will also obtain a portion of this class, but will rely mainly ii|?onthe secret niann-uv ring of certain |>olitical wire-pullers, who are found assembled in secret caucus at places well known to those who prowl through our city at the midnigh' hour, in search of heads and tails of the numerous clique* lo be found in every ward. Westervelt will depend mainly for support on [those who felt j aggrieved at his defeat in the nomination for sheriff, three years since, and also to the influence to be ex ercised by a portion of the "New Police" of the Six i teenth ward, who received their api>ointments through his hands. Alderman Seaman will exert himself but little, as his strength will probably be ex ercised in favor of Westervelt. George S. Mann and Thomas Conner will stand back, ready for the , chances in case of non-agreement on any other can didate. Alderman Briggs will not be a candidate, unless lie withdraws from his present |>osition as De puty Surveyor. Should he be prompted to do this, and receive the secret sup|>ort of " Old Ironsides" and his friends, his stock will stand high in Tam many. Ex-Alderman Pentz will carry the Fourth ward and there stop progress, while Alderman Em mans will never be able to secure the Sixth, unless the "New Police" of th.it ward, with their masters, sanction the act. lie will bring tohis aid Alderman Charlick of the First ward, who has concluded not again to appear before the i>eople for their suffrages, unless selected for Mayor of the city ! Charlick is already active in the field, and not only extends his political ramifications throughout the city, but even unto Iloboken and parts adjacent thereto. The office of Register for the three years, is, probably worth the sum of $15,000; and such is the political rascality of the friends of some of the candidates that open bids, of from one to two thousand dollars, have been offered within a few days to any man, or body of men, who would secure the nomination to a candidate to be named on the closing of the in famous contract. The |>eople must take this matter into their own hands at, once, and keep a watchful eye upon the movements of the various newly ap pointed " Police Officers," who have been selected by corrupt Aldermen, to serve their own selfish motives in the wards from which they have been elected. Look out ? look out. Thk British Revikwers on the Oregon QtrES rioN. ? The British Quarterly Reviewers of all sizes, have been following up the discussion on the Ore gon question, commenced by Sir Robert Peel and the newspu|ier press some months ago. They ge nerally assume the same ground adopted by Sir Robert Peel, contending for a certain indefinable right to the Oregon territory, which they find it somewhat difficult to explain or present in any tangible and intelligible form. One view taken by these reviewers is very eu nous and amusing, and that is, they assume as an axiom that this country must cx necrssitax, be con* tent with any arrangement which Great Britain may choose to make in its infinite charity ana unerring justice, because the United States are not in a con dition to go to war with England, because we have neither navies, nor guns, nor men, nor powder, nor money, nor anything else able to cope with the Bri tish. It may be that we have not the means to go into action oi a warlike character as rapidly as the British, but we have certain materials of warfare which can be employed at once, and prove very efficient instruments of assault and defence? and these materials we find in our cotton. We can sus pend the supply of cotton to the British manufac turers, and where would be their boasted ability to go to war with us with a revolution in the very cen tre of their empire? There is no danger to be apprehended from the British government, on the score of war. Should , we insist on every inch of the Oregon territory, they dare not go to war with the United States. We can originate a terrible revolution in that country in less than six months, by simply withholding our cotton exports alone. Indeed, the whole frame of the Bn* tish empire is in the hands of the United States, and they can preserve it for years, or whenever the urne demands it, crush it like a rotten building, by the mere force of commercial legislation, affecting the exports of this country to Grett Britain. Tiin Police Courts ami the Newspaper Press. ? We have observed with not a little indig. ?aut regret the course of the municipal courts of Baltimore, in reference to a portion of the newspaper press of that city, which, under a sense of public duty, denounced the action of those ccurts in a re cent case. The conduct of those courts appear* to have originated in an entire misconception o' their powers, the spirit of the age, and tin* right.- and duties of the public press. It is a feature in the ad ministration of the inferior courts of justice in this country which strikes every intelligent observer with surprise, that th?* most tyrannical, arbitary, and overbearing conduct on the pari of police authori ties is tolerated here, whilst in Lngland, a country under monarchical rule, such pranks, if perjietrated by persons clothed with "brief authority," would be visited by immediate and crushing rebuke. In London, such conduct as that recently exhibited by the police courts of Baltimore, and often in this city, would be scouted at once. The law of libel intro duced by Lord Brougham makes a just, and enlight ened, and salutary provision for the publication of initiatory proceeding in the Police Courts. And yet here, in the land of boasted liberty and superior intelligence and freedom, we see attempts made to L'o back to the dark ages of tyranny and the "Star Chamber!'" Let the press do its duty with fidelity, nuawed by the iniquitous threats or proceedings of any court let (it fearlessly denounce the iniquities ol corrupt magistrates and judges, anil we will soon have a better order of things. A mi ? f.mi-.nt* at mi Waikriv. Places. ? A grand lull is to be given at the Neptune House, New Ko clielle, on this evening. < ilorious music ? rare old wine and a gallant company of lovely women and brave men. iteed, the hospitable and enterprising host of the Hamilton House, nlso gave splendid ball at his magnificent pavilion on Coney Island, on Friday next.

We learn from the Staatsraad Vogt, arrived yesterday, that on the night of the 26th of June, in latitude 17 :t0, longitude til l' paused a long vessel on fire, which was thought to be a steamship. The S. V. was within half a mile of her when the deck fell in As there were no boats around her, it is sup|K?. ed that the crew anil passengers had left the vecscl the day before. If the v- -.-el -een was n steamship, she was probably one of the West India Line. L- S. Sikaaihr Miciik.an. ?

And first be aure to step down to 14 Ve sey street. When you get that length, as far as the entrance, do not be deterred, should your ex|>eetu tions be high, nor despair of having them gratified. This is the grand muxusin of Messrs. 1. and J. W. Meeks, where you will have the edification of in specting wares the moat' recherche the handicraft of mail can produce in their line. On ihe first floor you will look in vain for much that is precious; here and there lie a few specimens of the more substantial descriptions of goods, cases newly packed, and work men engaged in preparing fine articles lor all ihe ends of the land. Vou step up stairs, when an im pressive view is presented. This is the mahogany warerooni. It is full a hundred feet long, yet full as it can be. Takiug care not t? be tempted to look too frequently in the mirrors that adorn the walls on either hand, you wend your way carefully through the groups of f urniture, until you have made the cir cuit of the room. This is an interesting experiment, and he who can do so without halting to examine minutely the articles, is decidedly patient. Having done this, a laudable curiosity springs up to look more |>articular!y at them. By the time you ure half done with the chairs, you give i: up ? so many forms, styles, and fashions of this familiar ar ticle you never dreamed of in your life. Arm chairs, and rockingchairs. and drawing room chairs, and every other kind ol chairs without end. Tables again and sot. is ; settees and ottomans; the verv look of that plump elastic stuffing; thai splendid embossed velvet, or damask satin covering, is a type of luxury itself, it you want to get an accurate im pression of the present state of the art of carving in wood, he pleased to exaniiue it as shown on the cabinetwork about you. Mere also you can ac quire a correct notion of the dillerent styles, the most ancient and modern ; you can trace the gra dual transformation f roinone form to another, going as far back as 20 ) years ago. Egyptian, Elizabe than, Gothic?those of Louis 14th and loth, and the modem Parisian ? and last, though not least, the improvements introduced by American ingenuity. ? On the next floor above, corres|>onding size, shai>e and arrangement to the last named one, is the rose wood department. Here you will find every kind of article, and in shape anil finish xact counterparts of the others below, but of a more valuable kind still. Several su|>erb s|>ecimens in walnut arrest the rye ; there is no end to the variety of upholstery cabinet work and furniture that are placed all about in pro lusion. Three or four stores are still above those specified ; the highest occupied as workshops, where all those fine things are made. This is a large establishment. At 3)1 Broadway is the warehouse of C. A. Bau doine. It is a large and elegant place, and abouuds with rich valuables. lv VV. HutchingsiV Co. keep another store of a similar description, at 475 Broadway. Here, as in the other establishments, there are several large ware rooms ? the same abundance of rich chairs, the same variety in form, design and finish. This firm has another house at 452 Broome street. We do not deem it necessary te enter into further particulars ol the contents of these ample stores, as a correct idea of the rest may be formed from an examnaiion of one ; nor is it required to specify particularly more of the many houses of a like kind that are scattered over the city. It is sullicient to maintain their existence, leaving those who are cu rious in such matters to look into the directory and find them if they are so disposed. It is said that every object affords a hint for con templation to the reflective mind. All this fine fur niture is not barren by any means in this point ol view. Who the duce buys all these ex|>ensive and rare and curious commodities T what the devil brought them into the republican territoiv? why don't they go home where they belong I I low for tunate these thoughts did not obtrude themselves until after inspection, othei wise admiration would have pronounced its estimate of these valuables most latnely and impotently. Their carving would have been only Yankee whitling? their gilding all gingerbread ? the tempting rotundity of their cure tully stuffed seats, backs and cushions, nothing but the effect of the fermentation of lolly, luxury and pride thaf makes and pays for them. Pays for them ? who does that ? Listen. Hen pecked husbands, whose wives have exquisitely re lined tastes ; republicans, who ape the habits of courts and kings ? who cultivate the worst exotics oi monarchical soil; bankrupt merchants to save appearances ; empirics and impostors to make fa vorable impressions ; parvenu" who are ignorant of the uses they were intended lor ; green grocers, Wjill street shavers, retired rogues and candidates for bankrupts' certificates. There are a few of those who pay their enterpizing furniture dealers their thousands ol dollars, and patronise la demic-e mode. No wonder there should be so many failures in bu siness, so many Mr. Keady-to-halts as old John Uunyan wo Id say, on the high road of life. How can men pay more than 25 cents in the dollar to their creditors, it they give the other 75 for rose wood sofas to loll upon ? when they ought to be working to turn the penny? for Turkey carpets, Chinese vases and paintings, which they imagine are by the old masters because they pay as much for them as though they were 1 "It cannot be expected that men will meet their engagements who stuff their tine mansions with all that tney can call their own and atrillemore. These chaps put one in mind of th?* cuckoo, who only goes one degree farther, and in waiting till other birds build a nest, and then seizing possession of it to go through witn the process of incubation. When will men aud women learn to be discreet instead of fashionable; honest instead of dittin^ut, and pay their lawful creditors instead of patronising uphol stery and cabinet warehouse men 1 Aerial Locomotion. ? On Tuesday next a lecture will be delivered, in Palmo's Opera House, by Ro bert A.', West, Esq., on /Erostats, or Air Balloon, in which lie willexplain the method by which the yEreo Muzziana balloon may be guided through the air. A model will be set in motion and will traverse the room in various directions at the dictation of the audience ; winch will at once show the possibility ol one of still larger size being made capable of tra velling through the air in any given direction at the rate of about a mile a minute. The object of these exhibitions is the hope ot finding capitalists enterprising enough to aid the inventor, Sig. M. Muzzi, in constucting a machine on a large scale for practical purposes. The object ia certainly wor thy of the attention of the scientific and aflluent. Those who have already seen it, among whom have been some hialily intelligent and scientific per sons in this country and on the continent, pronounce the object souniit for by this machine, to be very feasible indeed. The Season. ? The weather yesterday was warm, sultry and unhealthy. Sickness seemed to |>ervade tin' atmosphere; the Hies were uneasy and trouble some; indeed such weather is only good for physi cians with iron constitutions and easy consciences In reference to the weather and seas > n, the AHmny ?Jrgtt# of yesterday says: ? The drought in this vlcinily and west and south ol' us continue* with unabated intensity. It is now more than four weeks since we have had an abundant rnin. Such a long spell of dry weather is (lurching every thing up. It gives the grass an appearance of being baked. The heat has also been ?o eve-'ive that the sun has been doubly scorching. Northern New Vork seems to have lured belter than we have iiyre, for we hear of abundant rain< during the last month. The crops there, wear the appearance of vigorous health The weather has again become very hot the thermo meter rising to 90. This combined with the intense drought, renders the air close and oppressive. Interesting from the Caik or Goon Horn. ? We have received the Cape. Town Gmelte to the 13th ol June. We m ;Ue the following extract : ? Inspecting the disturbances which hnve occurred be yond our territory, on the other side ol the Orange Ri ver, between the emigrant farmers ;ind the (iriqua', we are given to understand that hi i Majesty 's 7th dragoon guards, by a forced march, reached I'hibpolis in time to prevent bloodshed between the contending parties. The termors had captured upwards ol .1.'i,000 head of cattle, and -MO horses . and the only point remaining unsettled, was the restitution thereof. The Porpoise Slave Cask. ? The examination was closed on Monday evening. ? The respondent did not offer any testimony, and the counsel on both sides waiving any argument upon the case, the < ommission ers decided to require ( apt l.ihby to rocogni/.e further for his appearance at the next session of the I'. 8. Cir cuit Court. Borne remarks were mode upon the amount of bonds, but that point was lelt to be decided to. d8y. The witnesses exnminod yesterday were others of the crew of the Porpoise, one of the crew of the brig Ken tucky, which was on the coast of Afiica at the same time with the Porpoise, and Mr. Duer, the U.

Th#fttrl?Aln? Pi** Theathk. L? Muette de Fertici" was repre sented last night for the second time, and went off' very well considering the peculiar state of feeling of the mem ber* of the company, and the alteration* occasioned by the unfortunate lots they hare so lately and so suddenly experienced. M ine. Casini sang aguiu very well last ni^ht, anil wo may confidently assert that she has much improved lately. Wo always said that M'me. Casini wanted only contidonce, and this tends strongly to corro borate our assertion. The Duo,"Ainour Sacre de la Patrie'' was again sung with much feeling by Messrs. Arnaud and Harry, and was again received with enthusiasm by the public. It appears that Mftsamello had thought it dangerous enough to bocome the leader of the people in a popular commotion, without running the chance of bieaking his neck by the ill temper of his horse, for this interesting four footed jperformerjwas entirely suppress, cd last evening. Some may object to this innovation, as it takes off part of the pomp of the solemnity , but we think it much better to do without it, when the stage is not very large, and is already crowded by human beinirs, as it diminishes the chances of accidents. Miss Juiin Turnbull performed last evening, as had been announced, the part of kenella, and considering the short time she had to study it, she acted it very successfully. This young and graceful dancer, danced also with Mr. Martin, the " Tarentella," a Neapolitan dance, in which both were much applauded for the creditable mannor in which they perlormed it, and as a matter of course, it was encored immediately. To-night, the com pany will produce for the first time " l-es Huguenots," a grand opera by Meyerbeer. As usual, the director has spared neither expense nor trouble to give it the style of grandeur required by the subject. The sceneries, dresses, &c. Slc. are all very accurate, and the perform ance of this evening will really be a splendid affair. M'lle Calve, M'mes Casini and Richer, and Messrs. Ar naud, Douviey, tiarry and Bernard will appear in this opera. Bowkkv Tiikatkk. ? The performance last night ut the Bowery was similar to that of the preceding ; the same piecos, viz.? " Money," and "The Sleeping Beau ty." All the features discernable on other evenings again appeared without any change. The part of Eve. lyn in " Money" is played by J. 11. Scott, who has got over a slight hoarseness contracted by rather badly de nouncing in the role of C apt. Copp, "that rascal Ro chester," and singing his only song, " In the days of the Rump." .Iprapoi of this gontleman's acting ; it is high ly energetic and <|uite original. His reading of the play is doubtless improved by being interlarded by an occasional ejaculation, such as "damn me," "I'm damned;" it undoubtedly gives vigor to the text, and hence he may he fairly considered as improving on the various conuc and dramatic authors whose plays he takes a part in. Again. " Evelyn's" Byron shirt collar is a happy thought ; to be sure Bulwer never thought of seeing Iiis characters wear Byron cellars ; but if the Knglishare stubbo,n enough to'allow their washwomen to adjust their inner garments, that is no reason why their collars are not to be bent here. Evelyn looks the character to n nicety? that's flat. The orchestra does its share of the work well. We think there is more judgment displayed in the selection ol pieces than is often observed. We would suggest the propriety of giving the precedence to well known popu lar airs, but not to the exclusion of novelties, nor pieces from the various foreign companies altogether. In the present day, it is quite necessary to draw upon the Ita lian, French and German, because itfis the rage ? because they do it in Lendon, and for many other excellent rea sons. But the Bowery is the theatre of the people, ami it would be well to give it a smack of nationality by pleasing the popular oar and catching the popular eye.
Nothing can be more splendid than that " Sloeping Beauty." Its magnificent scenery yet continues to ar rest the occupants of the vastly crowded seats, and keep them as it were, spell hound. Those who have not seen it yet, have delight before them, which ought not to be neglected. Castlk Uahden. ? The bill for to-night presents consi derable attraction to the habitual visiters to tho Garden Mr. Parsloe and Miss Pray will dance the pat dr dcir from the ballet of Nathalie. La Smolonska Mill also be danced by Miss Pray, and Mr. Parsloe will appear in a pas chinuit. Herr ('line will perform this evening his grand act of metamorphosis and farewell scene on tho tight rope. Several overtures will also be played by the orchestra, and .Mr. Dennison will appear again and sing his agreeablo melodies. Niklo's Gardki*. ? The Acrobat Famm.v's Benknt. ? To-night this truly astonishing troupe announce n great variety of entertainments, among which they will give their new performance called the Aerial'Suspentionists,' consisting of numerous feuts on ropes, suspended from the roof of the Saloon. Chippendale acts liis original character of Dr. Dilworth? Syntax, by John Sefton, and Mrs. Dilworth, Mrs. Watts. Mr. Barnes, the I'anto mimist, dances a pas de deux with Miss Partington, and Mr. T. Placide and Mr. Nickinson take tho leading cha acters in the extravaganza of the " New Kootman." We hear this is positively the last appearance but o#e of the Acrobat Family at the Garden this season. Vauxhall Garden. ? To-night, the fourth of young Francisco, and of O'Connell, the wonerful tattoed ma,l> with customury series of singing and dancing. A bill wellc alculated to draw the crowd to that ever fnshiona. ble resort. Miss Julia Turnbull, the celebrated dam erne, goes to Boston next Monday to lulfil an engagement. She has attained the highest rank in her profession, and is sure of the most favorable reception wherever she goes. Mr. and Mrs. Lovell, old favorites at the Park, have been engaged for next season, at the National Theatre, Boston. The Baker Family are in Woodstock, Vermont, oa their way hither. Miss F.mma and Miss Fanny Ince, have been attract ing crowds to the Baltimore Museum for the last few weeks. Dan Marble is playing at Chicago. Welch and Mann's unrivalled equestrian company closed a highly successful visit to Montreal on Saturday last. Christy's band of Kthiopian Minstrels have commenced a series of Concerts at Montreal. It is stated, that Mr. Phillips, the Vocalist, was so muoh pleased with his trip to the I'nited States, that he intended to return shortly with other singers to form an opera company. Mr. and Mrs. Randall, the Scotch giant and [giantess, in company with Arthur Reddy Scarfo, the celebrated dwarf, are drawing considerable numbers to their levees in Montreal. Mr. und Mrs. Seguiri, and Mr. Frazer, were to give their last concert in Montreal last evening. " Have you had any experience in stage business," said a theatrical manager to a person who was urging him to give him an opportunity to make a first appeal auce. " I never had, ' said the youth emulous of theatrical fame, " I never had, but I have a brother who drives an omi nibus ; and I have been myself in the cab line !"

The crickets were pitched at four o'clock, and the party played one inning;* each, which lasted until sundown; the score being at the conclusion 88 to 81, which shows that the game in fioston will soon rival the sister city of New York. The batting, fielding, and bowling of some of the players could not be surpassed in this country. The Moaton Cricket Club play every Monaay at South lioatoii.

City Intel llgoieri Afpkara*. k of Wall street.? Wall street, from Nas aau to I'earl street, presents daily a motloy and curioua appearance. It has, in fact, bacome the general mart wherein all sort* of out-door tradesmen congregate. You can not only purchase there, stock in railroad*, canals, bunks, lie., hot any kind of I've stock from a white mou'-e or canary bird, up to a Berkshire boar or a Dur ham hull. You may purchase gold and silver, and the best American cutlery you may submitto a sponging, or purchase a piece of sponge - you may get a note shav ed, or buy capital shaving-cream from the Exchange steps. Money and ruicce pies- safety funds and soda water ? business paper and poodles, all mingle in Wall street. Storks tv Ciiaihim street. ? We are pleased to sre that a number of storekeepers in Chatham street have i - sued a card expressing their determination to close their stores hercufter at 0 o'clock This is a good move and we hope the example will be followed by storekeepers in other paits of the city. Fruits a*i> Vegetable!. ? Our markets are now well stocked with most delicious peaches, pears, plums, wa ter melons, inuskmelons and tomatoes.

The city has been for the past week, unusu ally exempt from fires or alarms. We should be glad if the devouring element hail spent itself upon the last fire. Loves'Labor Lost. ? A well looking couple, apparent ly belonging to the better class of farmers, who descri bed themselves as residents of Nantucket, called on Al derman Haii yesterday, and asked him to tio the knot which usually hinds such paities who arc inclined to pass through life " for better for worse."' The e'derman and a select number of friends, tetired to the Mayor's presence chamber, and the usual queries in relation to their whereabouts, 81c. , were made. The parties, how ever, were not able to give the most satisfactory ac counts, or u sufficiently satisfactory reference, which compelled Alderman ilart, very reluctantly, no doubt, to deny the gratifying duty of making them " one" for life. Both withdrew from "the chamber, evidently dis pleased, amid many curious speculations ? some remark ing that the lady was a rich heiress, who wished to be stow her hand 011 her favored Lothario. We hope that | some kind hearted alderman will take their case into [ consideration, should they again call. Hoard of MnpeiTlsoit, Al-u. 7. ? Uk. Reese's Cask ? This Board met last eve ning. Alderman Charlick in the Chair. The minutes of the last meeting were read and approved. Some few petitions asking reliof from erroneous taxa tion wore icc.eived and referred. The case of Dr. Reose was resumed. Thomas Doi.an sworn, tiaminrd hy Ma. Edwards. ? I am one of the Trustees of the Fourteenth Ward school; I never ordered any of tlio teachers not to read the ilible in the schools; I never came in contact with Dr. Reese in his oiiinial capacity; 1 was present when Dr. Iteese examined both the lioman Catholic Orphan Asy Ityns. There was something said there about the read ing of the Bible. The Sisters said they rend the Roman < atholic version of the scripturoe for the children before nine o'clock. Dr. Sweeny was present. Da. Jami s Stewart, sworn. ? I am Trustee of Com mon Schools in Sixth Ward I received a notice from Dr. Reese on 39th January lust, requesting mo to meet him the following day at !> o'clock, at the school-house in Elm street. I met him there. The teachers in my ward had been paid up to the previous October; on the 1st February, four months salary was due to them. This interview took place alter the resolution of the Com mon Council not to pay any schools that refused to read the Bible. At the time Dr. lleese was going to commence his annual examination, I got an anonymous note inti mating thatDr.Keesc was about to hold such examination; got it from a little boy, whose name I did not know. Edward J. Ci.ovrt, ?wom?I am a ^trustee of the lith Ward;l went withDr.Reese and showed him the schools; he seemed to be highly plcasod; 1 attended his examina tion, and was astonished to read his report afterwards; ho never told ine of any meeting of ward officers to be held for tlio purpose of 'deciding if the Bible should ho read; Dr. Reese never notified mo to meet the Trustees; I got a notice not signed; it purported to come from Dr. Keese. Dr. Hashiioi'i k, tworn ? I am Trustee of Common Schools in I Ith Ward, since Oth June, 184i; Dr. Reese was appointed in September latH and since that time to my knowledge he never sent anj communication to the ward officers; lie has never advised or counselled with any of the officers to my knowledge; he has interfered so far as the books of the school are in question; I have ex pressed to all the teachers that tho reading of the Douay Bible in the schools, was a violation of the law; and if any Bible was read, it should be the Protestant version. I had a conversation with the teachers about their pay : but this gave no directions about the reading or not reading of the Bible. Dr. Reese's conduct has been injuri ous to the interests of the Ward Schools; his report is a partial one; injurious to the Ward Schools and partiul to the Public Schooli; his statement in relation to the Orange street school is incorrcct. [Witness hero detailed the various items in relaliuit to the number of scholars and which he stated were all in correctly given.] These facts in relation to tho Ward and Pnl?lic Schools, as stated in a vague and general manner in the report are not correctly given. The remark in the report "that teachers of a foreign accent were employed" is false; the statement in relation to the want of capacity ofthe teach ers is also a falsehood; the books rend in our Ward arc those used generally in tho l'ublic Schools, a hook enti tled "Scripture Lessons," and also "Bible History,'- sro both read as Lesson Books in the schools. 1 advised tho teachers to orase their names signed to the order on di rections of Dr. Ueese. I did not give the advice gratui tously. Crosrrxainini d by Mr. Kktchl'.ni ? I signed the peti tion; I never saw John W- Bloodgood nor John Ross in the school; I know the latter sends three children to the school; I know l'hilip O'Brien, whose name is signed to the pet:tion; 1 do not know if these persons have had any personal knowledge of the facta set forth in the petitions Many persons signed the petitions on my own represen tations to them; I appear here as counsel for myself and some of the petitioners of the Mth Ward; 1 have heard the name of a successor to l)r. lteese; I have heard my own name spoken of as such, as well as that of others; 1 am not sure of getting the otHce. Chairman ? This cross-examination is not to be ad mitted before the Board of Supervisors. Mr. Kktchum? I merely want to show the bias? the motive in this matter. Chairman ? As a question of unnecessary waste of time, the Board can take it under consideration ; but it has nothing to do with tl:o case before us. Witnesj ? 1 have no objection to answer any question that may be put to me. Mr. Kktchum ? 1 want to show the bias, but we shall go on. Was there anvthing about ordering the Bible not to be read before Dr. Heese's coming into oflice? Witness ? The Bible was discontinued in tho schools until D.r Hecse came in, in September last. The Bible win read for about five weeks, both versions alternately, until the Commissioners came to the conclusion that in asmuch us the law forbid the reading ofthe Douay Bible, it should be exclude I ; and they then determined not to ? end the Protestant version lest the Catholic portion in the schools would take offence and leave. I frequently saw the children playing while tho Bible was being read; aid nut uiujIi reverence also paid by the teachers, who slurred over the reading. I was in favor of reading the Bible in the schools provided no clais of christians felt their consciences aggrioved by it. Aid Batons. ? Mr. Ctiairman, I should like to know if this course of examination ought to be allowed! Wn are going into the Bible question? a mattorquite foreign from the business before us. I shall stay here for n week on the inquiry we have in view ; but this is not to be allowed. Chair ma jr.? Certainly . Witness, in continuation to Mr Ketchum I nover objected to Dr. Reese's mode of examining in the schools; I never objected to his capacity; I objected to bis want of discretion. The Report of tho Doctor in many re spects is incorrect; and calculated to produce a false im pression. The highest salary paid to femala teachers in my ward is $.'i00. My (laughter is one of tho teachers, and Mrs. Dooly is another. The highest salary paid to male teachers is $400, and some $1000. Mr. McKlroy ets this salary in our wnnl. Some male teachers get 460. Lawrence J. Ditfv, sworn. -Testified that he is a Trustee. Signed the petition for Dr Race's removal; considered ho acted in a parti/an spirit, contrary to the interests of education. Had no means of knowing it fur ther than in liis intercourse with tlie Doctor on the sub ject of the Bible. Is averse to reading any Bible. Tho opposition I have to rending tho Protestant liiblc for Catholic children, is because I know the Catholic chil dren would withdraw. I consider reading each version alternately, every morning, a real humbug. (Laughter.) We thou hut it bettor to excludo altogether. The chil dren would object to it, and so would their parents. Dn. IIa'hroi i r, recalled We dery tho right or power of Dr. Reose to at all interfere in the schools. Tlie law doos not justify it. We deny the right of the County Super intendent to decM* any question on appeal. I consider ed the State Superintendent alone had jurisdiction I got it verbally from him that the Dona; llihle, if read, would lie contrary to law. Dr. Reese decided that the Douay edition may be read, and we did not appeal, be cause we considered he hail no right to make any de cision at nil. Chairman This Is going out of tho enquiry before u?. The Recorder presented two petitions against the re moval of Dr. Reese Mr. Howards here read several portions ol Dr Reese's published repons to the Hoard of Kducntion, in relation to the subject matter before the Board, which the press has already frequently commented upon. A resolution of tlie Board of Kducation, declaring against tho action of Dr R?e<e on the subject, and dated December, ls-M, was read and admitted. The enso for the components having rested. Mr. Kkti hi v hereupon moved to adjourn to the se cond Tuesday in September, on tho ground of tho ab sence of several of respondent's witnesses. Mr. I . n a i! i ? opposed tlie motion, no affidavit bo- | ing mado, find delays being always dangerous In such coses. I'lio Km niinrit wished before the question was taken, that the Hoard should first decide if it were necessary to drive flu- Respondent to a defence for a mere error ol judgment. II such n principle wcro established, every gentleman holding oflico would be llahlo to be ic moved, Alderman llissv would suggest if this was tho time and place to discus* the matterf There was no motion pending. The Kr. oannR I will move that from this testimony it is unnecessary to go into a defence. Alderman Bit-ikon considered no caso was made out. lie therefore seconded the Recorder. The question on sustaining the motion wast.ikenand negatived. Ayes, 4- Noes, I J.

His days ure spent in a continual warfare, and hi* nights in con futed dreams. No sooner is he revelling in the affections of some inconstant "fair," than his hopes are daihed and his mind distmcted by the appearance of some other dam sel pulling away at his heart strings. Mr. Michael O'Day is an examplo of the truth of thin lie yesterday morning appeared before Captain Dill, of the First District, accompanied by two ladies, Johanna Flynn ami Ann Costello, both holding him by the arms and claimiug him as their husband. They both brought with them certain "little responsibilities," the accept ance of which they urged upon Mr. Day. The parties, being conducted^ to the Lower Police, the matter was fuHy investigated, whan it appeared that VI r. O'Day married Miss Kiynn, in Limerick, Ireland, about three years ago, and that, in the course of a few months after his marriage he came to this country, pro mising to send for his wire as soon as he could forward her the means to follow him, which, however, he neg lected to do.

On her arrival here, she found the object of her search iu Boston, living with another Mrs. O'Day, alias Ann Costello, whe claimed to have been lawfully married to Mr. O'Dav in Burlington, Vermont, and subsequently had been blessed with the " responsi bility" referred to. After a patient hearing of tne ag grieved fair onos, and examining the certificates of their respective marriages, Justice Merritt proceeded to com mit Mr. O'Day for trial; whan Mr. Price entered as counsel for the accused, and contended that us the second wife of O'Day had a husband liv ing in Montreal at the time she married him, jhe second marriage was unlawful, and of course there could be no bigamy in the case. Michael O'Day was thereforo discharged from custody. Justice Merritt, however, concluded to send the papers to the Grand Jury. Contujumett of Gambling. ? A young man named Joel L.

On the part of the prosecution, a person named Hovt, then an Assistant Captain ol' the Watch, testified that he saw three men drive the pigs from a pen ; that with some as sistance they were all arrested ; that the prisoner was secured by himself, and that the hogs were claimed by the wife of ? arlan.

The Fire Department here is in a snd condition' It seems to have caught the infection? the mob spirit of the Philadelphia firemen, as on occasion of cveiy fire, there is pure to be a row kicked up among the class termed "the boys." This was the case on occasion of the fire on the night of the -1th instant; a liitht was commenced between two fire men, members of rival engines, which, if it had not been suppressed immediately, would have caused no doubt, a display of a considerable assortment of broken heads, mutilated faces, dec., and caused no little excitement in this usually quiet place. The opposition steamboats Troy and Ilip Van Winkle cause no little talk between the good folks of Albany. Being on the wharf yesterday I was perfectly surprised to find so many waiting their ar rival, and whin they did arrive, the first questions asked were, which boat started first, what time did they in ike, Arc. which certainly tends to increase the exertions of the rival boats, to have the glory ol arriving first in Albany, and thereby endanger ing the lives of their passengers, and this all for glory. The weather here isveiy uncomfortable, as it is exceedingly warm. The Orpheans are giving con certs here, which nre, deservedly, well attended. There is nothing else of interest transpiring. ? S.? About a quarter past one o'clock a fire was discovered in the rear of Mr. Charles Carter's sta bles, 33 Hudson street, (which extended to Mrs- Ly man 1 1 do; acarriige house; a few sited* were also consumed, but by the timely arrival of the firemen it was soon put under, without further damage ex cept by water.
