NEW YORK HERALD. Nevr York, Weflnt-aday, Ann""' :iT' To U?e Ba?l?ie?? Public. The fail season of business is approaching, und in spite of the interruption of our peaceful relations with Mexico, there is every probability that it will be greater than during any former season. It is important, therefore, for all who are looking out for the full business, to ascertain those organs of com munication with the public which h 'Ve the widest and most extensive circulation amongst business men, so that they may obtain for their advertise ments the greatest possible publicity. We have til ready given a full view of the progress and t?osition of it** New York Herald , and shown tint its ngjre- J git" circulation amongst the most active and influ- I ential clat-ses of society, is greater th^n thut of any other journal in this city, and nearly equ ,1 to one half of the newspapers of the day. Here is a sum mary and recapitulation of all the statements we have given, and if shows the extraordinary and un exampled increase of nearly twenty-five thousand in two months ! Rrcapitclai ion of Circulation. Total Circulation for the Total Circulation from 2 nth Month of June. July to "ibtli *iugu at.

In the approaching season, now close at hand, we have no doubt that this increase will be greatly accelerated, and that, as the activity of busi ness is resumed, our advertising patronage will j grow in the same ratio to that of any other element in society. In some of the old papers down town, with a cir culation of only a few thousands, we learn thai many of our merchants, from the narrowness of ! their vision, are accustomed to insert advertise- j inent of a few squares at the rate of from $200 to ! Jj?9U0 per annum ? money absolutely thrown away. I An advertisement in the Herald , of half the size, j and at less expense, would meet the eye and atten- j tion of ten times the number of business people ! that are communicated with through the papers of | the old regime. There is also a large class of adver- j tisements ? such as "wants" ? "notices" ? " board- j ing"? and so on, for which the Herald is by far the ! best medium of publication. There is no other piper which is so desirable and useful a medium of communicating with those, for instance, who want servants ? it circulates amongst those classes who employ servants, not, like some low penny papers, exclusively amongst the poorer classes, who do not want servants at all, and never read its advertise ments. In every point of view, we can recommend the New York Herald as being one of the best chan nels of advertising now published in the city of New York. Business is just commencing. People are just beginning their operations for the "fall." There will be no war with England, though there may be a brush with Mexico, confined to Texas, however. Business must increase as the population increases. Activity will increase, and we therefore open, at reasonable rates, the columns of our widely extended journal to all those who are in want of such services. The Abolition Exeltement In Krntnchy> The Anti-Slavery Movement. We have received the official account of the late proceedings in Lexington, which terminated in the expulsion of Cassius M. Clay's abolition establish ment from that place. The address, resolution", and so on, are marked by a threat degree of ability and temperance. We will publish them in the course of * day or two. Indeed, the wehle uff-iir has passed off with a degree of forbearance and quiet wHich i9 gratifying in the extreme The difficulty into which the people of Lexington have recently got before the world, may be traced to the deception which politicians practise upon themselves, and attempt to practise on the p iblic. Here is Cassius M. Clay, a violent, political partizan, without any sense or moderation, starting out from Kentucky, during the Presidential elec tion, coming to the North, and fancying that, by a ridiculous movement in favor of the abolition of slavery, he could procure the votes of the abolition ists of the North in favor of Henry Clay, and thus make him President of the United States. This was the great^error committed by Cassius M.Clay, winked at by the friends of Henry Clay in Ken tucky, by those very men who have been foremost in routing him out of Lexington. It was the covert support? the tacit encouragement of these very men that induced Cassius to start his paper, the columns of which teemed with incendiary appeals, and the most disgraceful attacks upon the planters of that State, and the social institutions of the .South in general. The catastrophe, which has at last taken place in the expulsion above, and beyond the law, of Mr. Clay, is only a part of the consequences of that great game of tolly, hypocrisy and humbug, which many of those men now so eagerly engaged in denouncing Mr Clay, encouraged under the mistaken view of aiding the election of Henry Clay tj the Presi dency. This it is that men deceive themselves, and by their hypocritical and scheming (>olicy only, de teat their own purposes, and bring themselves into a disgraceful and unfortunate position before the world. The great question of the present condition of the black races, or those of African descent in the southern States of this Union, seems to be entirely misunderstood by the present age We believe in the ultimate emancipation of the African races, but altogetherin a different form and sha|>e to that, which ,s contemplated by the fanatics of the day We be lieve that the present condition of the African races in the southern States is much more natural ? much more agreeable to the dictates ol nature ? and cer tainly much more comfortable, so far as the races are themselves concerned, than that of the lazy, in dolent, wretched, precarious, and equivocal position of the same races in the free States. The reveries in which the fanatics indulge to the eflect that as the blacks are human beings, they are entitled to the same privileges? the same rights, both civil and po litical, and otherwise, which the white races claim are founded on an abstraction growing out of the systems of philosophy and morals which pre vailed in past ages, and which never can be realized in the practice of these enlightened times In fact, this abstraction has been tuntly condemned ns a practical untruth, receiving that condemnation as much from those who affect to believe it, as from those that entertain the opposite opinion. It can only be by a destruction of all the genius, arts and civilization, which distinguish the Anglo-Saxon race, that a state of society could ever be produced, in which the black man can be raised to the same so cial equality with the highly refined white woman, or the black woman placed in the satna elevation with the while man in social |>osifion The idea of equality pervading the** distinct race*? an equal ity in a social or political point of view ? is as great and monstrous an absurdity as ever was conceived in the sclioolt^of paradoxical philosophy. The erro neous opinions, practical as well as theoretical, which prevail 011 this (mint, amongst the fanaticsand even the Christians of the North, grow out of a mis conception of thai language and those terms which abound in our religion and in our philosophy ? reli gion and philosophy whichwere founded in a different age, and before these races were brought into such a singular juxtaposition as now presented in the United ' States. The whole theory of negro emancipation, whose object is to place the blacks on an equality u ith the white race, is utterly impracticable and ab surd. But thai there will be an emancipation in process of time, we have not the slightest deubt. That the whole of the Southern States will one day be |teopled solely by a white race, and that the African races will disappear, is iust as certain as that the red race which formerlv occupied the States of New Ene l?nd, N?*w York and their sister communities, have faded and disappeared before the Ando-Saxon mil lions who now occupy the soil. When the white imputation of the United States becomes as large and ns crowded as in certain parts of Europe, or even of China, the superior vigor and physical conformation of the Analo-Saxon race will drive from labor and out of existence the black races throughout the whole continent. They will disappear in the same way and by a similar process as that by which the red races have disappeared. This is the only eman cipation that ever can take place ? an emancipation which has already begun in some parts of Maryland, Virginia and Kentucky, where the soil is so much worn out that it will not yield abundance enough to em p| tort the two races as formerly. We hear of the depopulation of certain counties in these slave States Now this depopulation is merely the commencement of thai great process of emancipation, or rather dis appearance of the black races before the superior physical energy and mental activity of the white races. We have no donbt that in less than twenty years, by the due process of nature herself, Maryland, Kentucky and Virginia will present an aspect as different to that which is now afforded, ns the north now does to that when the red races held sway. The whole fanaticism, therefore, of the present day relative to abolition, is a vain, absurd and fool ish error, which is merely used by half-thinking, half-fledged philosophers, to agitate the world and to acquire a little notoriety. The politicians and office-seekers of all parties adopt it, and jump into this excitement for the purpose of acquiring some little position, from which to reach office and power and emolument Hitherto the abolition question amongst the politicians of the north, and particular ly a certain party, lias only been the means of de stroying their ascendancy and of injuring their for tunes and prospects. We believe that the operations of Cassius M. Clay and those connected with him during the last year, combined some of the chief elements which contributed to the defeat of his kins man, as he calls him, Henry Clay. The expulsion of the abolition press from Lexington is merely the exercise above and beyond the law of the State, of a power which every community possesses to protect itself from incendiarism, insurrection and those ter rible annoyances to society, which are so little thought of in the organization of civil government as never to be provided for. No doubt Mr. Clay will endeavor to re-organize his journal in Cincinnati or some other place, and out of the excitement pro duced by the late occurrence in Lexington seek to acquire additional patronage and power amongst the northern fanatics. The Printing of the Next Congress. ? As the opening of the session of Congress approaches, the interest and anxiety amongst the politicians with respect to the public printing increases. The set i lenient of this question will be, indeed, ol very con siderable importance, as it will afford us accurate data from which to judge of the relative degree of 1 strength possessed by the administration and oppo" 1 sing influences in the democratic party. i There are three sets of candidates for the printing of Congress, in the field. The Union? the Co?nfi tution, and the United States Journal, Ate all to be before Congress as competitors for the public print ing. Some of them must be disappointed. All can not succeed Who is likely to have the best chancel The Union will, of course, receive the sup port of the administration. It is the organ of Mr P, .Ik ? called into existence by him, and will have all his influence exerted in i's behalf. No doubt it will receive a great number of votes in both Houses, but the question is, whether all the other candidates will not agree to combine against it in order to de feat Mr. Ritchie? A combination of similar ele ments defeated Mr Van Buren. Mr Polk and his administration will occupy in Congress, in rela tion to this question of the printing, a position quite similar to that occupied by Mr. Van Buren before the Baltimore Convention. Van Ruren men? Calhoun men? Cass men? all sorts of men's men? who are looking forward to the succession, can hardly be expected to vote for Mr. Ritchie. It is very true, he may be perfectly in dependent and open for the "succession," but it is very well known that he must do exactly what he is ordered to do by the Executive, and, of course, as it can hardly be supposed that all of the candidates for the succession are in the confidence of tlieExecutivs, no little delicacy will be felt by many members of Congress, in voting for the support of an organ over which they have no control, and which may any day be turned directly against them The Consti tution is very confident of receiving the printing of the Senate, by a sort of compromise. We do not know how that may be. Then the United Stairs Journal expects to come in for a share, hut we don't know what influence they can exert, for they do not possess any distinctive character. Still they may create annoyance A flea can be very troublesome. At all events, there will be a vast deal of in triguing, and scheming, and plotting, and canvass ing on the subject of this very important question - There has, in fact, been all summer running and secret contest about this business. Many of the politicians are opposed to I; itchie, and by getting the letter-writers at Washington to second the ir schemes, they have been very industriously working to di minish his chances. How successful they will be is yet to be seen On the whole, we conceive that the contest is in a very doubtful position As it will be the first thing determined by the new House of Representatives, it will give us a very acceptable inkling of the strength which Mr. Polk's adminis tration can muster on the owning of the session. The Naturalization Laws. ? The native organ, designated the American Patriot ? save the mark ? commenting on the views expressed by us the other day, on the subject of the naturalization laws, con siders that we were quite insolent and impertinent in suggesting an entire abolition of those absurd I tws. Our patriotic contemporary can't, for the life and soul of him, see the slightest absurdity and in justice in subjecting an intelligent and respectable member of society to civil pains and (>enalties on his arrival in this country. We diiJer very much from our contemjiorary When the persons of foreign birth called Puritans, who first settled New Kngland, arrived on these shores, they were at once entitled to all the civil, political and religious privileges of he community in those days, and we do not see why their collateral descendants on the other side of the Atlantic should be debarred from the -ame privileges. All belong to the same rac?? and all have the same inalienable rights. Mexican Affairs.? There is no further news troin Mexico. But we have little doubt that some hostile demonstration will soon be made. Mexico re gards us as having declared war, and she is doubt lesa meditating an attack on some supposed vul nerable point. Some of the pa|>ers laugh at the re quisition on the militia of Louisiana, but that may be the very means of precipitating (he collision which they dread. ,lu*t wait a Utile Custom House Removals.? After a great deal of delay, speculation, talk, stirmia*- and mystery, the new Collector has at last begun to fire away among those faithful souls who were placed at the receipt of customs by his predecessor, and to bug custom house officers with as much mug frotd us Jim (irant, our barber, bai's quails and iwrtridge on a Long Island sporting excursion. We have received from unauthentic source, the following curious list of removals and appointments, which have been made in the Custom House during the last few days : ? Removal ok Da* IxsriccTous ok Tiir CvtTOMS, A'u. -J >j Robt. E. Agnew, democrat. John 8. Austin, of Empire Good officer, charged with Club. being a Native American. Thorn** W. Hall, (D.)

Nisht Inspector*. David Tollock, Hugh McGuire. This is merely the beginning of the tun ? a small mouthful to whet the appetite for the rest of the (east. The character of these removals is very cu rious and somewhat mysterious. They seem to be made principally among the democrats, for we find that only two whigs have got their walking papers. What is more singular still, is the fact that some of these democrats were among the warmest support ers of Mr. Polk. Several members of the Empire Club are comprised in the list of decapitated, al though Capt. Rynders, the chief of that precious and pious confederation ? the Don Giovanni of democra cy ? is still retained, and will be, he having been aj> pointed by Mr. Van Ness at the particular request of Mr. Secretary Walker ? Mr. Polk requiring it for some ulterior purpose. Yet it is not fair to dismiss the working men of the club, while retaining the chief spirit. Some of the leading whigs are still in office The "old boy in specs" id still snugly seated at his public desk, and will probably remain there, for all Collectors have had a wholesome fear of touching that character. The greatest havoc has been made among the Tyler men, for two thirds ol those removed were formerly numbered among the leading spirits of the immortal dynasty of Capt. Tyler, llerrick & Ropes two former editors of the Aurora, which died one day of inanity, are still retained, and may be ? as they have a formidable bow and quiver full of ar rows in the shape of a Sunday paper, with which they might do some mischief in a small way. On the whole, we are pretty well satisfied with these removals and appointments, although they have stirred up a good deal of alarm around the town ; but we think, as the venerable Collector has put his hand to the business, he may as well go on and finish what he has so dexterously begun. Don'1 keep the poor devils in agony with a sword hanging over them suspended by a single hair, like tha( which the great locof'oco, Dionysius of Syracuse, held over the head of Damocles, a philosopher and intqiector of old horses, in that wonderful place. The New Steamer Oregon. ? This new steam packet is now attracting a good deal of attention. She is a magnificent vessel and is the longest steam er in the world. This wonder of a steamboat was launched several months ago, and is now finished in superb style ller length is three hundred and forty feet, und her proportions are symmetrical and in |>erfect taste with harmony and beauty. She is owned by Mr. Geo Law, late President of the Harlem Railroad, and now President of the Mohawk Railroad It is his intention to place her on the line with the Neptune at present running round Point Judith to'Piovidence on the cheap and popular plan. The O. will proba bly make her first trip next week. The owner of this mammoth steamer has success fully tested her qualities and power within the last few days, and she will again be tried on the 30th inst , when the English monster steamer Great Bri tain goes to sea. They will then have a trial of speed to Sandy Hook, and perhaps farther to sea The latter is only ten feet shorter than the Oregon ; they, therefore, are the steam champions of the two nations. Mr. William H. Brown, the builder of the Russian steam frigate Kamschatka, built the Oregon, and Mr. Simonson finished the joiners work. The finish and model of the vessel speak well for the skill o' those concerned in her construction. Horrible Disclosures ! ? Scarcely have we fair ly recorded the particulars of one dreadful and truly heart-rending tragedy, than we are acain called upon to give publicity to other occurrences of a still more appalling character, embracing as they do, the crimes of seduction and abortion, resulting in lhe death of a beautiful young lady, and the ruin of another. It will be perceived by a reference to our Police Intelligence, that a certain notorious female, who has on more than one occasion figured conspi cuously in our criminaljcouri",for offences at once re pugnant to the laws ofGod and man, has again been arretted for other crimes, of still blacker character if possible ller partner in crime, and a tradesman in the upper part of the city, have also been arrested and fully committed to answer, for 'heir participa tion in these deeds of infamy. Mow long ire these enormities to !*? |>errnitted with impunity ! Tim M ? stkry op tub Seven Stars ? The Union, government orsran, republishes from the Nuth villi I'm on, a letter from Mr. .larues Walker, defending himself from the asjiersions cast upon his fair fame and character by those wfio have represented hirn aH one of the individuals designated by the mysterious stars in the famous l^wis letter. Mr. Walker com pletely exculpates himself and < ienera! Cameron, and substantiate?, to the very letter, the statements which were made some time since in the communi cation of fine oi our correspondents at Washington, and the theory of the stars, which we have again and again insisted upon, (ieneral Cameron was never engaged in any negotiations for the purchase of the Globe, and Mr. Walker explicitly denies that he ever was. (fur revelation of the mystery of the "stars" may now, therefore, be considered as esta blished beyond doubt. Travel krom Bostom.? Over eleven hundred passengers arrived here vesterday morning in the Massachusetts, Captain Comstockt from Stonington and Wocester, Cupt. Bacon, from Norwich. About seven hundred, in. eluding two or three hundied women and children of all sizes andsor's, crowded imo the Mas sachusetts. She was t o liill for either .-peed or com fort, although she i* the most commodious steamer i on the Sound. We are told that her e^hins, Ht mid* ! n i ?ht , presented one of the funniest und most sleep* j less and comfortle.-s scene." ever beheld in i? passen ger packet This immense travel is produced by the ' low fare ? two rlollitrs a head I >*? i n :_r the rate paid, to go two hundred and twenty miles.

L?*t evening Mr. Hackatt mad* hi? second appearance in America, since hi* return from F.urope, in two of lii* original character*, Solomon Swop, in Jonathan In F.ngland, and Monsieur Mallet, in the drama of that name. The house was much better Ailed than could have been expected in this exces sively hot weather. Next to Sir John Falstaff, Solo, man Swop is the character in which Mr. llackett delights, and for tho admirable personation of which ho has earned a fame both in F.urope and America His rich sly humor, in the personation of the Y ankee, kept tho audience in a raar of laughter. Mr. Bass, a* Andrew Bang. h?ul an opportunity to di ? f. la y h i ? t in a character which is suited to him-he did the \ otk shire servant most admirably. Mr. J" appca^edaa Torrent. Mr Dyott as Sir Larry, Mr. De \\ alden a* Old skirt ; Mr* Vernon us Mr*. Glastonbury awl Mm* hate Horn a* Fanny. A* Monsieur Mallet, Mr llackett had an opportunity to display the versatility ol his talent. It is something ol a jump trom a \ ermont \ ankee to an exiled French General, llut Mousieur Mai e .is one ol Mr llackett'* originals, and was of course well delinea ted The evening closed with the farce of a Kolandfoi an Oliver. To-night we have the Merry Wives of \\ mil sot in which Mr llackett appears a* KalUtatl in love \lr' Fuller, a gentleman from the southern theatres, makes his first uppeaiance in New York as Slender, and afterward* as Thomas. in the Secret. As the good old business times are revived, why should not the good old prices be restored for admission to this improved place of amusement. Surely the re suits of the enterprise and energy of Simpson, in his re cent trip to F.urope, are the best illustrations of his ile um- to ?iiit the taste and wish of the public for the legiti nate drama, and ure worthy of an additional i!> cents to the boxes. Bowery Theatre.? Virginiua and Frnest Maltravers were performed last night, as successfully as tho prece ding one. The house was again crowded to sull'ocation, and no room was left for a single individual. Anether very attractive bill is announced for to night? the Mys teries of Paris? a drama founded upon the thrilling no vel of Eugene Sue, in which Mr. J. K. Scott will act tho " Chourineur," or Stabher, and Mrs. Phillips " Flour do Marie.'' Tho other characters will bo personated by the lirst talent of the company. The evening enter tainments will conclude with the military drama, called the Plains of Chippewa. It will undoubtedly bo very difficult for the lover of the drama to resist so great an inducement as that offered by this bill; and the house cannot fail to be as numerously attended to-night, as il has been since it* opening. Castle Garden.? By general request, the Mammoth Klectrical Machine will be exhibited again to-night, with the same experiments, to which have been added several very interesting ones. This wonder, which has already drawn the admiration of thousands, cannot fail to prove a great attraction to those who have not yet seen it; and all who take interest in natural sciences, should call at the garden without delay, as this machine will only be oxhibited for a few nights. Niblo's? Faejfcii Opera ?Nothing could be more satisfactory than the general reception of the French troupe on Wednesday last, by a very fashionable audi, once. Although the "Ambassadress" is no test of the ability of the company, yet the artistes were individual ly welcomed vory encouragingly Calve, as usual' sang with great lightness, elasticity, and gaiety, and was deservedly applauded. 'Madame Stephen Coeuriot is a most charming actress, and mado a most decided im pression in the character originally sustained at the Gar den by Madame Le Court. Mons. Buscher and Madamo Richer have improved astonishingly, and were well re ceived. To-night the first grand opera at Niblo's, and as the comic opera s have met with great success, we hope those on an elevated scale, such as "La Favorite, > will meet with encouraging support. M'lle. Calve Mr. Arnaud, Mr. Garry, Mr. Douvry (tho excellent basso), and M'me. Stephen Coeuriot, all appear. The orchestra is led by Mons. Prevosl, which is saying enough. It is announced in the advertisements that for the convenience of those who aannot give early atten dance, seats can be secured in tho proscenium boxes and parquette at f 1 cach, by applying between tho hours of 10 and 4 during the day at the ticket ofllce. A few pri. vate boxes also at $7 each. All the rest of the house is 50 cents. This is a capital arrangement. Palmo'j Theatre.? There was a highly respectable audience last evening at this house, to witness the per. lormancas of tho Little Misses Kelmiste, better known as the " Infant Sisters." Their performances are truly astonishing, and well worth witnessing. Therejwill be a

change of performances this evening, in which their ta lents will be more amply displayed. They must be seen to be appreciated. Sig'a I'ico and Sig De Begins arrived yesterday in this city after a very successful tour to the east. They are immediately to start for Canada, and will appear at the Olympic theatre, Montreal, in the early part ol Septem ber. The Chestnut street theatre, Philadelphia, will open, we are told, on Saturday evuuing, with a stiong compa ny Mrs Mowatt commences next Monday. The Keans follow a week or so afterwards. Then llackett and oth er sturs take their turn. This theatre has been magnifi cently embellished and improved by Mr. Burton during the recess. The National Theatre, Boston, opened last eiening with a good company, and to a full house. The Hughes Family gave their farewell concert at Lynchburg, Va , on the'.'Oth inst. The fall season at the St. Louis Theatre commenced on the 18th inst. with Goldsmith's sterling comedy, "She Stoops to Conquer," and the play called the "Ladies' Man " Mr. Ludlow and Mr. and Mrs. 1'arren, appeared ou that evening. The popular performer*, Master Clinton, the snow white negro, Diamond and Brown, together with Mr. Babbit, the popular player on the violoncello, gave a grand concert at Washingtonian Hall last evening, and hegan a series of their Ethiopian Melodies. The Swiss Bell Ringers have giveH three concerts at Rasco's Hotel, in Montreal, to numerous aud fashion able audiences. Their ex raordinary performances at tracted the attention of the ititr, and they had the honor ol an invitation to perform before Lord Metcalfe, and a large party of distinguished guests, at the Castle on Thursdayeveningjthe result of this performance has been that they give another series of concerts, commencing on Monday evening, under the inost distinguished pa tronage, and it is said that arrangements aie in progress to get up a hit rhamjielre, at which the dances are to be played on tho bells. The lingers return to this city from Montreal, and will appear here early in September. Skeirett closed the theatre in Montreal, on Saturday the 33d, after a tolerably successful season. Miss Cla rendon was his latest star. Howard and his wife are engaged, it is said, at Niblo's. The Royal Olympic Theatre, in Montreal, is going to open in the beginning of September next, with the two celebrated artists, Signora Pico and Signor De Bcgnis, wno will perform in costume for a few evenings. The Harmoneon Family are delighting the people in Somerset county with their charming music. They will visit the towns on the Kennebec river, and revisit this city by the way of the seaboard. Holland took a farewell benefit la<t night at the Alba ny Museum. Messrs. U. C. Hill ami F. II. Nash, professors of music, and connected with popular choirs and musical societies, of New York, gave a concert at Oilman's Saloon, at Hartford, Conn , last Monday evening. Crickkt ?The great match between the St. ( ieorge's Cricket Club, ol this city, against the crick eters of all Canada, is exciting the greatest attention throughout the continent of America Alreudy have arrived in this city numbers of strangers from all parts to be present at the contest to-morrow, and amone them not a lew of the gentler sex, who by their fair and beautiful countenances will much < n Ijven lb'- Kcene and incite them to success. Military Movements. ? Major General Scott, commander of the forces, arrived in thiscity yester d.ty, and proceeded immediately to the seat ol gov ernment. Three more companies of the second battalion United States artillery, at present under the command of Col. B.inkhead, are under orders of readiness for service in Texas. Mexico anii Teias. ? Movement or TRoory. ?A few hours after the receipt of General Taylor's despatch and requisitionin New Or leans, Major ( Fall v, commanding the Ar tillery Battalion attached to the Louisiana Legion, having heard that General < Mines contemplated the railing for two volunteer artillery couipanies to re inforci' Gen. Taylor's detachment in Texas, waited nn the General two days ago, and oflered Ins servi ces to raise and coniBiatid th" cotnpanieH in ques tion, to act in Texan. The ( .eneral has determined to accept the otfer, and with them calls for the re mainder of the artillery force of the division, foi the purpose of manning the fortiUcationa in ilie neigh borhood of this city. The two regimenl* of infantry called out, will comprise, probably, fifteen hundred men. We e not informed whether they ate intended for active operations in Texas, or merely for the defence of our own forts. The Governor's requisition was made on On. Lewis, commanding the |,t Division of the Louisi ana Militia. We have now to add, that the Washington Batta lion and Louisiana \ ohintccrs have gallantly ottered their services in the tSovernnr, who is exacted in ih" city by nine o'clock tfns inominir. We understand t'nt orders have gone to Baton ' Kouge for arms end equipments lleciuiting is now the order of the day.

Since the murder of Ellen Jewett, or the mysterious affair of Mary Kog?rs, nothing of the kind has created such an excito meut iu the public mind m the myaterioui death of So phia Smith. We have already ipoken of the physical impouibility ol her having committed micide in the manner described. There ii now but little doubt thai the has been murdered. It appeared to all that the in vestigation before the coroner was conductcd in u re markably superficial manner. We have it from undoubt ed authority, that, from some cause, but eleven of the jurors weie "Worn. On Monday evening tho friends ol ?he decea?ed arrived in the city, and went immediately to .Mrs. Hazard's house. The sister was so overcome lit tho sight of the corpse that her friends were obliged to remove her from tho house. Her friends believo that she was murdered, and desire to have tho matter probed to the bottom. Justice Matsell, and Joins B. Phillips. Esq., commenced an investigation yesterday morning. In giving evidence ut tho inquest, it was stated that the deceased had beon accustomed to periodical lits of insanity. Her friends were yesterday examined upon this point, all of whom gavo unequivocal testimony to the contrary. A young lady with whom the deceased had been intimate, was examined, who stated that previous to her going to Madame Hazard'*, the deceased had told her that she was going to be married in a week, and consulted her upon tho kind of dress she should wear. She also s'ated tint the deceased told her that she had quite a large sum of money, which she had made while in tho employ ol Madame Hazard in Greenwich street Nothing lurther ol importance was elicitod at this examination. The mystery about the handkerchief, marked C. Whitney, has been cleared up. It is proved to have be longed to Mrs. Whitney, a lady with whom the deceased had boarded previous to her going to Madamo Hazard's Yesterday afternoon the body was opened in the pre s?nee of several physicians for the purpose of ascer taining whether any poison had been taken into ?he stomach. After a cnroful examination of the stomach, none was found. The body was removed about five o'clock, and interred in the burjing ground of an Epis copal Church in Varick street. The investigation is to be continued to-morrow. Hot Weather.? The weather for a few days past has been exceedingly warm. Summer seems duterinined to '? die game," and leave us with a warm romembrance <>' her. On Monday, at li o'clock, the mercury stood at *1 degrees ; at .'I o'clock, at wti ; and yesterday, at I'J o'clock, it stood at 8S ; at 3 o'clock at rt!t. Business Cards Rksemiilinu Bank Notks. ? It is bo coming quite customary for business men to issue caids resembling in appearance the notes of banks. In many oases much pains appears to be taken to carry out the resemblance. W hat is the object of this we cannot ima gino. It appears in very bad taste, and it is a fact thai theso cards are often passed upon the ignoraut or young for genuine bank notes. A friend has just shown us a card which was passed upon a lad in his employ, wheth er intentionally or not, it matters not, as a three dollai bill. This is a card issued by an engraver, with his name at tho head engraved in large capitals, thus: ? Bank On each corner is n figure 3; the signatures of cashier and preiidont are all made out; it is numbeied 184i, and the issuer "promises to pay the strictest attention to his business. In fact, the bill, at a superficial glance, ap pears to be a genuine bill of some bank, and as such, was passed and taken. This is not the only instance of the kind we havo heard of. The practice of issuing such cards is entirely useless, and as we see in this case, they are often used by dishonest persons to deceive the ignorant and unwary. Book Trade S.u.r. ? The annual trade sale of Bangs' Richards & Piatt commenced yesterday, and will con tinue several days. A large number of the trade are prosent, and more will arrive to-morrow. Tho books are generally put up in small lots, and sell at good pri ces. Another Mock Auction Shop. ? We notice that anoth er of these swindling shops has been opened in Broad way. Why will respectable landlords rent their stores for this purpose, and thus countenance this system of robbery ) Wii.i. Saltpetre Explode? ? The gentlemen appoint ed to decide this momentous question wore to have re ported to-day, but as the Mayor and Aldermen were ? one on their annual visit to Blackwell's and Randall's stands, where they probably settled the question wheth er champaign would explode when the cork strings aro cut, we did not see to whom the report could be made.? We shall probably havo it shortly. Unparalleled Lireralitv ! ? A few days ago a boy picked up a gold watch, down town, worth about a hun dred dollars, and spent sovoral hours in finding tho own er. which he at length succeeded in doing. He carried the watch to him, and upon presenting it, was scolded by the owner for not returning it sooner; but relenting, he put his hand in his pocket and gave him, as an encour agement for his honesty, tho enormous sum of twenty five cents ! He must be distantly related to the man who gave the destitute carman ten cents, and said, ' Go to my father and he'll give you some." Coroner's Office, Aug. 26th. ? Drowned. ? On Sunday afternoon last, several young men went to batho at the foot of 81st street, N. R., anyone of them, about twenty two years old, whose same has not been ascertained, was drowned. Tho Coroner was called this evening to hold an inquest upon the body. Pollcc Intelligence. Ai n. *26. ? Another Case of Jlhartion.? In consequence of information imparted to officer A. M. C. Smith, in re ference to a recent case of abortion, 8tc., that gentleman proceeded to arrost Madam Costello, alias Maxwell, and iier putative husband Joseph Maxwell, also a person named Charles Mason, of Avenue D, on a charge of having produced an abortion upon the person of an inte resting young lady. Krnm the facts adduced in the case, it appears that Mason, who by the way is a married man, and has a dry goods storo in A venue D,lome time ago em ployed a young lady, probably about 17 years old, to assist hiin in his store. Before she had boon in his em ploy very long, lie succedcd in seducing her. After oarrying|on his criminal intercouiso with the unfortunate female tor some time, and discovering that his victim was encimte, lie called upon Madam Costello, at her establishment in Cispeuard street, for the purpose of se curing her professional services, 4ic. In accordance with tiie arrangements made od that occasion, the young lady was conveyed to Madame'* head quarters' as a boarder, but where she was not permitted to remain long before her seducer compelled her to undergo one ol Madam ('.'* srirntifie operations for the purpose of pro ducing an abortion, notwithstanding the protest which was made by tho helpless victim against submit ting to such a proceeding. The result was a premature delivery of an offspring, to the utter ruin of her health and happiness. What is still worse, the foregoing case is by no means tho only instance of Infamy with which this woman, Madam C.,now standi charged, lor it has also been ascertained, (should the complaints prove true) that during tho month of February last, a beautiful an I accomplished yoang lady, who had unfortunately been the victim of some black-hearted villain, was placed in the establishment of Madam Costello, where she also un derwent a similar operation the result of which how ever, proved frtal ; gradually sinking after the diabolical act, she finally died, when, as it is alleged, she was put into a sack and sent over to some part of New Jersey, where the body was packed up in a box, well covered with saw dust, See., and then forwarded by Adams Si Co 's Kxpress to some section of Massachusetts, wheie ol course it was duly received and disposed of. Forgtry and %,'lrrtst. ? A very fashionably dressed indi vidual was, this morning, urrcsted in Wall street, char ged with having committed several extensive forgeries Forged notes or checks, amounting to about $80(10, have already been discoverod The accused refused to give his name, or place of residence; but it is expected that his real name and character will be known in the course of the day. It is also believed that forgeries, for much larger sums of money, will come to light. In the mean time the accused remains in custody, at the Chief's of fice, and will probably be more fully examined early to morrow. Unhhins an Jtldtrman.? Alderman Seaman, of the 16th ward, yesterday fastened his horse, a beautiful animal, to a stoop in the rear of the City Hall, while he went in side on some business. On his return he discovered that some daring rogue had mounted his nag and fled. ?fn F.cliittr of a Star.?

Mr. William Brown, while walking along u street in the Second Ward, be tween 1 1 and 1? o'clock last uight, was knocked down by a man named Andrew Connelly, with tho supposed intention of committing a robbery. Through the prox imity and assistance of somo of the Star Police, Connelly whs secured, and detained to answer. Instilling Frmilts ?It is very evident from the number of arrests that have been made of late for offences of this character, that they are rapidly increasing, or. through the exertions of the new police, the offender now stand n much worse chance than formerly in exer cising their feats of rowdyism. Tho last case of this kind is that of James Oallagher, who was arrested and detained fo answer for insulting females who resided at House No. Ill Sullivan street. i nkr Haskrt .? Kogues appear to manifest some partial i'y for these articles, for, in addition to the two stol"n h few evenings ago, a third one was taken this morning fiorn an old offender. The property has been deposited with tho chief of police, for the purpose of having it re stored to the owner .4 Sin tular Cat* - -The premises of Mr. Washing, a fur and cap dealer in (irand street, wote searched, by virtue of a warrant, about n mouth ago, when two Chines* baskets, containing a pair of ear rings, finger rings, Sic., were taken awav. under the plea that they had been sto len. Within * few davs past, Mr. Washing ascertained that he was again likefv to submit to another search -he therefore appeared before a Police Magistrate and gave bail fur his appearance to the chaiges preferred against him , at the same time, stated in the most positive manner that the articles taken away were his own property.

It is said that the money was identi fied by Mr. l'oole as the same which he lost. The par ties will be examined this morning. A Truant Win:. ?
