??? ? NEW YORK HERALD. IV'ew York. Tnr?l?jr, Auguil 1*, 1845. j ' Th? AMMM Movement. That strangely mingled combination oi fannticiam, violence, lolly, and demagogueiwu, which is desig nated the abolition movement, is fart assuming . n aspect dark, portentous and menacing in the extreme | So long as the selfish, hypocritical and fanatic <.l j leaders of this movement stood isolated andalon-, scouted by both political parties, and regarded with unutlected contempt or indignation by all intelligent and sober minds, there was comparatively little tofe r from fucli a quarter. Hut now when we see cert;, n portions of the great whig party amalgamating with this spirit of rebellion and disorganization, and pres. ? a enjoying the confidence o( that political influence, boldly and openly avowing their alliance with the abolitionists, it is indeed time that the patriotism and common sense of the country should be thoroughly awakened to the danger which thus threatens the very existence of the republic. The development at the last Presidential election ot the augmented lorce of the abolition party, at once suggested to a certain section of the whigs t!:?> expediency of conciliating, and, if possible, absoriv ing that intluence. Sixty thousand votes iu thr ::re States was something worth acquiring, ac ;:i ti e opinion of many, decided the Pre-iden:; p i Hence the tenderness with which ' e 7Vt X j that whig Hitfiu ot which : .> *eerei::e j organ, have handled the abolitior ??>. nenrr je s.njrJ l ir spectacle ?' the iff ihf v - thai political icfla <*uc* w.tfc ?i? ffcaaMfc. u ?? ;.u-r leii-rs an 1 d 'Lb :tu* ? important to ?tciw tiK fwidiiwhmna. .Tj Kf-rc-sy, bvCassii i M.

H. Seward, Thur low Weed, nnd Horace Ore-ley, assuming the same position, and udvocating with might and main the treasonable and disorganizing principles an I doctrines ot the abolitionists. Uniting in the same movement, we find the transcendental philosophers and social reformers of all classes, such as Kali h Waldo Emerson, and William H. Channing. In every quarter, where these men can command hiv influence, they promulgate their fanatical opinions; and with a zeal and perseverance worthy of a bett> r cause, they sow the seeds of revolution and rebellic: all over the land? finding, in weak, vain and igno rant minds, agenial soil and appropriate harvest. Aided and stimulated in this way, the abolition movement at this moment, really presents to the c?lm and philosophic observer of the signs of the times, an aspect most threatening and portentous. \"o longer confined to a few fanatic?, without the power, opportunity or means of making any infln- J ential impression upon the public mind, we now j find this abolition movement assuming an attitude ot importance and power, fully conscious of the al- 1 liance and aid of political organs, which enjoy th. reputation, at least, of potent influence with the par ty to whose interests they are professedly devoted. Hence, the hardly at all disguised abolitionism of the Tribune and kindred prints, has breathed new lifeintothe Northern fanati s, and their insolent ai: i incendiary publications are now circulated in every direction. Thus, throughout the free States, you now find in every town and village, an "Abolition Society," with its secretary in daily correspon dence with the organ in New York. The object of many of these whig leaders in thus amalgamating with the abolition movement, is to withdraw from Birney, the stereotyped candidate ot the fanatics, the votes of his constituents, and to make them tributary to the advancement of the party, and the achievement of the local "spoils." This is the chief view, 'we have every reason to believe, of the new section of the whig party in th s State, which finds in the Tribune its consistent and ever ready supporter and organ. All these movements acquire encouragement f ir beyond the most sanguine desires of their suppor ters, in the apathy ;<nd indiscretion of the adminis tration of Mr. Polk One of the most singular and foolish acts of this Administration, ha? been the se lection, under ii perverted construction ot a law of Congress, as one of its quari organs in this region, of one of the principal abolition organs of New York. This selection has been mysteriously made, in open and palpable violation of the law of Con gress, through the stupidity, ignorance, or interest ed policy of the Postmaster Oeneral and the Post master of New York. This indirect sanction by the present administration of the principal abolitic-n organ in the Northern States, has created a excitement in the South. This is quite natural. ? Such a recognition of one of the most influential agents of the abolition fanatics in the North, mi.y wellexcite the fear and indignation of the Southern States. Thus patronized by the government ltseii', the abolition movement must, as a matter cf course, acquire an immensely increased impulse and im portance. And yet whilst we thus find the udmini - (ration fostering in the North that violent, treason. i ble and fanatical spirit which does not hesi ale i > avow its disorganizing and rebellious projects, w e ^ee it in the Southern States professing a direct!;/ opposite line of conduct ! Are there not, verily, in this, tokens ot disaster, of which the present ad ministration would do well in time to take heed ' Beacon Course, IIouokkn. ?

The interesting ceremony of laying the corner atone of tii" uew buildiug to k place yesterday afternoon about live o'clock. The ceremonies were commenced by a prayer t ron i the Kev.

Notwithstanding ih# stormy >:?:# the weather, a larger audience than w * had ret t**a ii j the Park, tilled the hou>e at an early hour. Trie ' tations raised by the giand opera of Les Huguenots teem to have been very great, and if we judge by the feelings of the audience, which exhibited itself in unbounded applause, we may assert that they were not disappoint' ed. Never, since the company began to play at the Park did that theatre re-echo with so many hurras. The name of Meyerbeer stands too high iu the musica' world for any one to attempt a ciiticism on his works, the only thing that can he done, is to compare his works ore with the otner. Tho opera of " Huguenots" as a musical composition is certainly far superior to Robert, but to say in what consists this su petiority would be rather difficult, alter asingle heating, wo must, consequently, forbear treating of this subject until we {,'et abetter acquaintance with this Opera. Se veral passages were very well told by the artists of the company, Among others, the^omance of the first act, with an accompaniment of the viola, sang by Raoul (Arnaud.) The "nir Huguenot," of the same act, rang by Marcel, (Douvry.) The song of the second act, by Marguerite. (Mme. Tasini,) with the duo of the fourth scene which she sang with Raoul. weie very well told by both artists. The duo of the third act, between Val entine and Marcel, was told also very creditably by M'lle (,'alvi and M. Douvry. Mr. Garry, who acted the Count of Nevera, sang his part with his usual skill , and w as much applauded, ?specially in the third scene of the fourth act. Mr. Bernard ha 1 a very lengthy part also in this opera, tiiat of tho Count cle St. 15ris, and he acquitted himself of it in a verycredituble manner. Korthe first time lpst night we heanl Mine. Richer in an opera. This artist had the part of I'rbuin, which she told very v. ell, considering that it was the first time sh > undertook it; moreover M'me Richer knew that her appearance, however agreeable it may 1-e to the public in other cir cumstances, was last night a disappointment, lor instead of her M'me Ccruriot was expected, and her feeling at knowing that she was coming before the audience, with out having been aunouiiaed. if we may so speak, being ignorant whether she would be w elcome, was sulfir-ient to i>aralyse somewhat her powers, and prevent her from singing as well as she might otherwi e have done. We noticed ulso another aitist whom we hud never seen before among the members of the company, this is Mr. Mordant, one of the company who had re mained in New Orleans, and arrived in this city only two or three days ago. He took last night the ro/? of Tavannes which is one, however, of little importance, and performed it well. We hope we inay have an op portunity of seeing him in a play that may give him a chance to display his talent. The choiusses last night ' were generally successful, as they are usually, and de served credit for their union harmuni</ut. The orchestra as usual were applauded separately, and greatly deserv ed it for the manner in which they performed on their instruments. We poticed the introduction to the second act, a solo on the flute, which was done very handsome ly; the artist, whom we regret not to be able to name, received the acknowledgement of the uudience. llav- I ing spoken of the opera and the performer*, we will not conclude this article without saving a word of the matin el. The scenery and dresses, ol Lis Huguenots, are of a very showy and costly nature, and are well worth see ing. We engage those who were not at the I'ark last night to go and hear it, if it be r epresented again before the closing of this season. To-morrow night w ill be pro. duced, for the last time, the other opera of Meyerbeer , " Robert le Diablo," this will aflord a good opportunity to amateurs to compare both productions, and at doubt not that a great many of those who heard " Lea Hn guenots" last night, will avail themselves of the occasion to gratify their curiosity M'lle Deijardins has baen en gaged expressly for the seduction scene. On Thursday night M'lle Calve'* benefit, on w hich oc casion will be given " L'Ambassadrice," and the second act of " La Kille du Regiment," two ojieras in which M'lle Calve has heretofore excelled. Bowerv Theatre. ? Notwithstanding the extreme heat ef the weather, this splendid establishment was last evening filled by as large an audience as on the opening night. Bulwer's play of "Richelieu" was presented, with Mr. Scott aa Richelieu? and in him the wily old cardi nal found an able lepresentative? lie looked and acted the old man to perfection, and supported as he was by a powerful and well cast stock company, the interest felt by the audience was continued till the close of the play. Davenport as De Mauprat, seemed to throw more life into his acting than we have ever reen him belore. llenkins appeared as Baia das ? Mrs. Philips as Julia, and Mrs Sutherland as .Marian. The entertaiments closed with the Legendary Drama of the " Sleeping Beauty," full ol beautitul sce nery an J gorgeous effe.ts. The same performances are to be repeated to-night, and w e advise all to go early, or despair of obtaining a seat. < A?TLr Garden.?' To-night the " Som-am-bull-ole," a parodyof the Soiniiambula,with all the original music, wilj be given, for the last time, at this Gaiden, by the Ktluo piau company. This will prove agieat treat to the lovt r* of fun, and thil delightful place of amusement will, no doubt, be as crowded to-night as it has been lor some time past. musical introduction, arranged ex pre sly for the occasion, will be played previous to this mor!( opera. The second part will be preceded by the over' ture to the " Bronze Horse." Nmi.o's? This evening the very popular comedian, Brougham, commences a short engagement iu conjunc tion with the excellent Henry 1'lac.ide; they each take characters in the "Nervous Man," admirably to their style of acting. The management contrive to keep up 11 succession of the best actors in the country, and the re sult is crowded saloons. This will be a real comedy night, for the " Irish Tutor" is to be given by tho only living representative? Brougham. Chippendale, Nick irison, and Mrs Watts have all good parts. The young Cerito and juvenile Celeste dance a />?? de de iu Vaiihaii. (tARnr.".? This garden, one of the most agreeable retreats in town, continue* to be crowded every night. The performances are unusually attrac tive, and rali for a liberal pationage. The Steyemarl family and Keth Boon will appear this evening, and wil no doubt perform before rt very large audience. I'a ..vo'i Oikra llufsE A theatrical performance in the < German language, took place last night at thia thea tre West's groat drama in five arts of ? Das | Mien e'rn I raum Lite a Drcr'jn, was tolerably well acted by the company The house si emed quite full -and to judge by the audience last night, these artists will very likely find good patronage amongst the Oermrm residents of this city.

Yesterday about ten o'clock, the pedes trians in Chatham street, near the Theatre, wero thrown into a furor of excitement, by the appearance of a largo bull-dog, foaming and frothing, running at full speed up the street Never wan room allowed in quicker time tor the passive of the most honored or wealthy citizen. The Jeu s retreated into their shops; the apple-women forgot their interest, and d,>rted from their stands ? one, in her eager haste, upsetting the whole establishment, scatter ing apples, pears, peaches, aud gingerbread in most in teresting confusion; at which several little boys, forget ting the danger, their mouths watering for a taste of the luscious fruits and the sweet cakes, stopped upon the walk and commenced a pleasant scramble for the spoils. The dog was pursued, aud we believe, finally killed, ut ter running into Kast lirondway, upon which order and quiet were restored iu Chatham street. No one was bit ten. Seriously, during this hot weather, the authorities cannot bo too particular that the law, to its fullest extent should be eniorced upon every unmuzzled cur reaming at laige and endangering the lives ot our citizens. It is not sufficient that the dog-killers should attend to their business a few hours in the morning, but they should be scattered over the city all day, with a posse of officers to protect them, if necessarv. The life of the meanest citi zen is worth more than all the curs in Christendom. Brutamtt in a Parent. ? Vesterday afternoon a grout crowd was collected in the Bowery, who were follow ing a man named VVm' Moffat, dragging along a boy about 13 ) oars by a dog chain fastened to his wrists. A great excitomciit prevailed among the beholders, aud they were, with difficulty, restrained from applying Lynch law to tho brutal lather, and freeing the hoy. - When arrived at the Stntion House, corner of 3d stieet ami Bowery, the father inade complaint to Justice Koome of disobedient conduct on the part of his child. Justice Koome, however, after inquiring into tho matter, found that the parent, who at the time was intoxicated, was iu the continual habit of beating and otherwise mal treating his son; whereupon he committed the father, and J set the hoy at liberty. BvkNT District. ? This part ol our city, which but a few weeks since was laid desolate by the devouring flames, now presents a scene of industry and busy labor On all parts of the ground laborers are engaged in re moving the ruhbish, great quantities of which have al ready been take n away. Several buildings have already | been commenced on both side* of Kxchange l'lace, and on both sides ot Broad and Beaver streets. In a few day*, this whole ground will he musical with the sounds of tho trowel and hammer. Some of the walls already raised, look a little too thin. It is sincerely to be hoped that our capitalists and merchants, who have shown their eater prise and energy in tho rapidity with which they have carried on their rebuilding operations, will not subject themselves and ourcitizeus to another loss by lire, on ac count ot any additional expense iu erecting thick, walls and fueproof buildings. Why cannot we be as secuie from fire in New \ ork as the inhabitants of Paris arc, where a fire is almost unknown, and the spread of flames entirely an unheard of thing 7 Let fireproof buildings be erected, which will be an ornament to our city and im part a feeling of safety to our citizens. Gra.vd Military Parade. ? A great deal of mirth was ixcited yesterday afternoon in the neighborhood of Ann and Nassau streets, by uu unique specimen of military parade. The soldiery consisted of about a dozen boy", differing in size as much as the army cl Bombastes Ku rioso. Their uniform consisted of high crowned, black hats, with remarkably narrow brims? each one wearing around the crown the label ot "New York Newsboys." Their commander was a stall, strapping fellow, dressed in a jacket of red flannel with blue facing*. He seemed to entertain a high opinion of his dignity as captain of a military company. Two of the privates bore banners, on one of which w as inscribed "Moral Suasion,'' on tho other, "Honesty is the best Policy. Itegiment of N. Y. Newsboys." They marched in Ann street, Kulton street and Theatre Alley to the music of a penny whis tle and tin kettle Probably this movement has some connection with the late news from Coney Island.

They start at 9 o'clock in the morning and return at H o'clock in the evening.

From all accounts, it would seem that the Texan Con ; vention is progressing rapidly with tlio business befoie it. It is thougnt that the lnembera will get through with j every thing by the middle of this month, August. The j sect of Government, it is said, will probably be continu ed at Austin lor the next four or live years. It may pes- j sibly have nothing to do with the business of legislation, I but we hope the fleas are not quite so thick there as they were three months since. Dr. D. A. Perry, of Washington county, Texas, was ! murdered a few days since by a negro, formerly tho pro perty of the doctor. Although there was no witness to I tho act, the negro was suspected, accuscd, confessed the deed, and has been hung. According to tho Civilian, the health of Galveston con tinued remarkably good. The weather had been dry, and rain was much needed. A semi-weekly mail has boon established between Washington and Austin, to continuo during the session.

The following extract of a letter we find in the Nation al Register of the 24th ult. It il dated ? Ai'stim, July 19, 1845. There is but little of interest going en here? the mem bers ol' the Convention are becoming a little more ex citable as time progresses. Yesterday there was a flare up between lien. Davis aud Senor Navarro. Davia, in ad vocating some measure, introduced into his romarks a comparison lather disparaging to tho Mexican nation, at which the "deputy" from Hexar took lire, and demanded if the remarks were intended as personal: to which Da vis rejoined, by denying that he had said what was al leged. The seat of Government question, I think, is des tined to raise a row, the "West" having divided upon it between l.agrange and Austin. Below we give an extract of a letter from 4 'apt. Grico, of the I'ndine, giving an account of the landing of the United .State* troops in Texas. It is dated? Aransas Bav, July 28, 184.').

Tho various committees in the convention at Austin ; have reported tho different provisions tor a Constitution of the Mate of Texas, and these arc published at length in the Civilian of the 30th ult. We give some of tho more interesting articles and sections as they appear in that paper, premising that the editor thinks that various alterations will be made in many of them before their final passage. The following articles from the "Bill of Rights" may not bo uninteresting 3d.? No religious test shall ever be required as a quali fication to any oflic.e of public trust under this State. 13th. ? No bill ol attainder, ex jiost facto law or any law impairing the obligations of contracts, shall be made, nor vested rights be divested, unless for purposes of put), lie utility, and for adequate compensation previously made. 14th. ? No person shall ever be imprisoned for debt. l'.Hh.? 1'erpetuities or monopolies are contrary to tho geuius ol u free government, and shall neverbe allowed; nor shall the law of primogeniture or entailment ever be in force in this State. In the " Kxecutive Department" the 1st section says that "The supreme executive power of this State shall be vested in a Chief Magistrate, who shall be styled a Governor of the State of Texas." Sec. 4. ? The Governot shall hold his oltice for the term of four years from the time of his installation, and until hi* successor shall be duly qualified, but shall not be eli gible for more than four years in any term of eight yeais; he shall be at least thirty years of age, shall tie a native citizen of the United States, or a citizen of the State of Texas at the time of the adoption of this Constitution. The oth section of that part ol tho Constitution having reference to the "Judiciary" depaitment of the State is as follows : ? The Governor shall nominate, and, by and with the ad vice and consent of two-thirds ol the Senate, shall appoint the Judges ol the Supreme and District Courts. The editor of the Civilian is of opinion that this section will become a law, thus taking the election of the judges from the hands of the people. The 1st section of the " Legislative Department" pro vides that " every free white male citizen of the United S<ates, who shall have resided in Texas one year pre ceding on election, and the last six months in the county ortown in which he oilers to vote, shall be a qualified elector. ? Indians not taxed, and Africans und descen dants of Africans excepted. No minister of the gospel or priest shall be a member of the General Assembly.

We have given as many of the features of the Constitu tion of the new State as wo can find room for? tiie entire docum?nt would occupy some four or five columns of our paper. The Civilian says "that it appears to bo un derstood that a majority of the members of the Conven tion are in lavor of inserting a clause in the Constitution to prevent banks.

Fashion able Season ? Flirtations ? Mrs. Cora Mowutt ? A 'theatrical Company ? Yankee Hill ? Professor Muffit. The grand ball of the season, a description of which I promised in my last letter, came ott witli great iclat at the " United States," on Friday night. All the beauty und fashion here assembled met to roain through the magnificent grounds and richly furnish ed saloons ? to join in the dance and son and revel in the luxury which wealth and taste had spread around. The night was cleur and lovely. The azure vault of heaven thick ly studded with millions of stars, which, like the bright and glistening eyes of angels, looked out from night's curtain with seeming pleasure on the joyous glittering throng below; while the pure soft breeze of the south wind fanned the cheeks of the heated dancers as they issued, all glowing in their light robes, from the ball room into the clear beauty of the o'erarching sky? heavenly music floated on the air, mingling its notes wit1 the murmurs of low fountains, and the gay laugh and merry voices of gladsome hearts. But let us enter the ball room. Is it not a glorious and brilliant scene '! The lampi shone o'er fair women and bravo men ; A thousand hearts beats happily." Loud swells tha tyusic? Tera-ra-taru, tnra rarara ? ra ! round thoy go in the giddy, ma/y and volumptuoas waltz. Then were there burning passionate glances from "great black eyes" ? soft pressure of hands, Hnd all the customary tokens of love. A cotillon was call ed. then a Polka, and afterward a promenade. Shall we walk and view the company ! Who is that lady dressed in white, whose dark lustrous eyes, where love lies dreaming, sparkle with delight ? whose rounded form uniting all the first freshness of girl hood with the more luxurious graces of the woman, and whose clear, pure complexion, and animated intellectual features bespeak high birth and a noble soul ! It is the highly accomplished daughter of Mr. D , of Boston. By her side is the Sylph-like ligure and sweet face of our most charming songstress Mrs. M. of New York. There, too, is the stately and brilliant Mrs. O'D. of Baltimore. Here, in deed, are "Beauties that e'en a cynic must avow." But there are parvenues and pretenders also Pet - pie whom you will never behold again? whom it would he difficult to find, unless, indeed, you sought them in some tradesman's shop, or insignificant country village. Observe that charming girl, pen sively seated on an ottoman near the "window. ? Ever and anon a sigh escapes her bosom, and strug gles in its progress to escape two mountains of the purest snow. Her story is a sad one. True love milled in its course ? once the cynosure of all eyes ? the magnet ot a brilliant circle? the observed of all observers ? before the sunny glance of whose eyes, hearts throbbed that never beat before. One had taught her how to love, but fortune hod not smiled on him. There had been tinkling guit ars by moonlight ? stolen meetings ? projected ?-|i<p-? ments ? all detected by an intercepted letter. The object of her choice was rich in all the virtues that can adorn inan, but without an exchequer. Ma raves, Pa storms. Could he, with his snlen did horses, his carriage, his stocks, ana his lands, condescend to wed his daughter to a merely deserving muni Forbid it. pride! He forgets the time when he himself was a porter in a dry goods store, looking to his own honesty and in dustry for u happy futurity. The goal is won, but the means forgot. He forbids the match, places the lady under euresse, and hurries her olf to Sara toga to change the scene, hoping in the hurry and bustle of an imitative fashion, to stem the current of her feelings. Such is a specimen of our calico and tin pan aristocracy. Aristocracy! ? amusing word as we adopt it. Miss , the sausage maker's daughter, proud of her fortune, atf'ects to look with a grave and patron izing air on Miss A , whose father was only a successful dealer in live hogs ? while her Pa at all events was attached to the scientific manufacture of bolognas. Miss A , in her turn, looks with the most profound coVempt on Miss B . who can only claim descent from a candle maker, and dis dains consorting with any one who could even stoop so low in the scale of society as to deal in '? dips." Since my last letter we have h "1 a great mar.y fashionable and distinguished arrivals, who find ex cellent accommodations at the United States, Con gress llall, und the Union. The smaller hotels ore also crowded. Among those not previously men tioned, we might name Thomas Dixon, Esq., con sul for the [Netherlands, at Boston, accompanied by his lady and daughter; Mr. Moore, British consul for New Orleans: Mr. Thatcher, Danish consul for Boston; Charles Bradbury, Esq., and two daughters, of Boston} Mrs. Harrison G ray Otis, of Boston ; Mrs. T rapier and servant, and Mrs. Drayton and ser vant, South Carolina; General C'oo|>er and lady, Al bany; Mrs. Mason of New York; llev.

Pearsall, Esq.; Drew and Robinson ; Thomas Ward, Esq.; Dr. Bacon, author of the Mystery of Iniquity, New York; and about twenty of the first families in the country. The Messrs. Marvitl who have long been cele brated for their hospitality and worth, nave several rooms reserved for fashionable and wealthy fami lies, who are expected to-morrow. At Congre:-s Hall and the Union good Hccominodiitions may also be found. The fashionable season may, therefore, be said to have fairly commenced, and will probably exceedj all others in brilliancy. We spend our time in excursions to the Lake ? plaving billiards and ten pins at Gridley's ? prome nading the delightful walks and avenues, drinking Congress and Pavillion spring water? flirting, iu tri^ueing, talking scandal, and listening to the di vine and harmonious warblings of the fairest and most bewitching damsels in existence. The highly accomplished arbutante at the Park, Mrs. Cora Mowatt, with Mr. W. II. Crisp, Mr. and Mrs. Chi lies, and a talented company, are announced to appear to-morrow evening at the Saratoga theatre, in the "Lady of Lyons." They will no doubt be eminently successful. Yankee Hill, too, an nounces a series of stories, Arc., at the United States; and Professor Maffitt is lecturing on mat ters and things in general, without descending to particulars.

This hotel is what tli'* literal i of the play bills would style " crowded to suffocation" ? and they might safely call it an "overflowing house" ? fur from fifty to a hundred boarders, who feed in this white washed caravansery, lodge in all sorts of out of the way places, exchanging llieir clean beds and roomy chambers with all the indescribable comforts of home, for a flock mattress, doubtful sheets, small towels, saucy servant?, and just water enough to waul) the dust out of tit'- bat-in.

The bulk of the visitors have evidently collie from the unknown nooks and corners of the land, ?uid having rnked and scraped together just enough to pay their travel and hoarding expenses, look ten times at a dime before they spend it. As the proof < f this, look at the fact, that on the night set apart for the benefit of the band of thin hotel, there were scarcely enough persons present to (ill on'- third of the hall room, while on the free nights it is crowded The only exhibition that has made money here, is the hand of Swiss li-ll UingTS, whose concert# have beeen crowded. Kven Ole Hull had a slim audience, and I am told that every entertainment hither to oflered has failed. A splendid specimen of meanness occurred at the last (concert of the Swi^m |{ell-ringer?. Just previous to Opening the doors, a irreat number gathered on the piazza, and a rush took place by those near the door to obtain tickets, supposing the room woujd not hold so many as were already waiting. Hut this was a needless alarm, for about three hundred of the party coolly walked past the Concert room door and stationed themselves at the windows, which were necessarily open on ac count of the next. That loafers, ragged boys, negro waiters, and those who had "music in their souls," but no money in their pockets, should do this, was not surprising, but I aver most positively that mora thin fiftv fashionably dressed I idies (!) stood in the mid i of that. steaming ina^s, rnlierthan pnyOOcentp each for a ticket.

Opening Sitrnn. This morning, at seven o'clock, 1 took passage on board of the steamboat Columbus, to attend Camp Meeting at this place. We started from New Vork in the midst of h ter rible shower, which, no doubt, prevented a great many of the brethern from coming, who otherwise would. After all the passengers got on board, and we had fairly started, the scene on the boat was rather ludicrous. In one place you would see women with band boxes, bundles and baskets; in another place were rocking chairs, cots, beds, mattrasses, (all thoroughly soaked, as a matter of course,) and boxes, cotlee pots, frying pans, and every conceiva ble article for culinary purposes, including cooking stoves, all in a most admirable state of confusion, all of which were on the way, like myselt, to the Me thodist Camp Meeting, and, I rather think, that be fore the meeting is over, some of them will be a little the WOrM for wear. In addition to the regular passengers, were two or three hundred enormously large lobsters in u square box, topped off with several turtles, of the snapping breed, destined to suffer on the occasion. So you see that the zeal of the brethren does not prevent them from providing for the comforts of the irner man. On the passage we were regaled by the young Me thodist men and women on their way to the camp, who in spite of the storm, kept up a continual chaunt from the time we left the dock until our urrival at this place. They were in knots or clubs of six or more, each carrying on its own business indepen dent of the others, and without regard to what the others were pinging. In the centre were about a dozen singers, male and female, led by two young men with solemn visages and remarkably white cravats, who did quite a snug little business on board the boat, by selling spiritual songs with the chorusses affixed, as^sung at camp, protracted, and prayer meetings. Tfiey appeared to show great partiality for one of said songs, of which the chorus was ? " And when we reach the landing place, In the realms of endless light, We'll bid thin world of noise and Hhow, Good night, good night, goodnight." In another part were some fifteen or eighteen sing ers, male and female, with their feet restingon bask ets of prog, who several times sung a hymn or "spi ritual song," the chorus of which ran as follows, as nearly as I can recollect: ? " Sinter will you meet me, Where parting is no mere Ditto Brother, Sic. Sic., Ditto Teacher, Sic. See. After my arrival I proceeded to the encampment, which is situated about one mile and a half east of the landing, in the centre of a romantic and beautiful grove of oak, sycamore, &c. There are about fifty tents already erected, with every kind of accommo dation, but ther<> will be several more, I understand. The tents are divided into private and public. .Some ar?- for the sale of straw for bedding for the brethren, ( Mem.-, straw has risen fifty |?ercent within a flew days in these parts) and others tor the sale of edibles. &rc. Not over two hundred have yet arrived, and it is in consequence rather dull, but I hear-that they will be in full blast by Wednesday next. Movements of the Gulf SiitrAnnoN ?
