Herald Supplement. We issue a supplement this morning to oar city subscribers. Advertisements and news compel ua to do so. ____________ Nesv York, the Metropolis of the C nlted Slates. We believe that New York, in point of popula tion, wealth, intellectual power and central action is, if not the third, the fourth city in the world, ex- ; chiding China. It is certainly the first city on this continent. During the last few weeks the census of New York has been completed, and in some of the jwpers we have seen circulating the following statements growing out of the enumeration Comparative Tabula* View ok the Population of the ISO. 11,119 6,895 i 11.100 20 971 20.362 19,126 26 335 30.353 30,896 20.998 27,265 13,373 23,411 31.101 16 435 40.323 27,247 Total >66,066 202.589 270,089 312,710 366,785 Valuation of Psopestt.

It is generally supposed that this city at this moment contains a population ol at least four hundred thou, sand persons, between the two rivers, and running from the Bowery to Kingsbndge. There have been many errors in the present enumeration now under way, and gross negligence has been perpetrated in filling up the returns. If we take, therefore, the pro bable population of this city with its suburbs, in. ? luding Brooklyn, Williamsburgh, Staten Island, .Jersey City and Hoboken, we will have an amount of nearly hall a million. This population is an ac tive, healthy, independent population, and for all ef fective purposes, both physical and mental, is equal to the immense population of either London or Paris, and certainly far beyond that of any other city in the world. In other respects than mere population, however the great metropolis of New York has character^ tics to which no other city in the world can pretend It is the chief city-the metropolis of a free nation of the only republic in the world, already embracing h population of twenty millions, and which doubles itself every twenty-five years. In this city is concen tered a great deal of the talent, wealth, power, intel lect, genius, imagination, wit, and we may add al so, the folly, roguery and vilJainly of the whole con tinent, with considerable jwrtions of similar ma terials which coma from abroad. In this migh ty centre originate all the political movements -all the new doctrines?all the strange the ones which are circulated throughout the coun try, and which agitate the political, religious, literary, philosophical, or theatrical world. In fact, 't may be said that no man, be his profession what it may, throughout the country, can be complete in all points, or have finished his education, unless he has passed one, two, or three years in the city of New \ ork, there studying the various phases of hu man nature, as it developes itself, according to its natural impulses, under a free government and the mighty impetus of a great city. New York may, in deed, be regarded as the great centre of inteliec'tua1 vitality to the whole nation. And, singularly enough,the controlling influence here is not so much the government as the newspaper press. That is the great conservative element. The population and wealth, and business activity of New York, are all increasing with astonishing rapidity. In every direction the city is swelling and extending. Buildings are going up in every quar ter of the suburbs. Broadway is more crowded than the Palais Royal, or the Boulevards, and presents as animated, crowded, and bustling appearance, as any of the most thronged thoroughfares of London. The citizen who lives down town, gazes with astonishment at the increase of the city when he sails up either of our noble rivers, or rides through ,he region beyond Union Square. At its present rate of progress, New York must, in less than twenty years, be second only to London. The press of New York is one oftha most charac teristic features. Here only exists the independent press, or a press that can be independent tor the whole country. Certain journals are perfectly be yond the reach of individuals, or politicians, or powers, or governments, or any special -merest In other cities of the Union, the banks, or clique* rule the press; but here,from the vast extent of patronage and ihe competition, the press is entirely beyond the reach of any power of corruption. ?ri* Ra,LEoa? and Railroad Speculation ? We understand that the Erie Railroad Company have filled up their subscription lists, having recei ved three millions of subscriptions, and now an nounce their intention of proceeding with accelera ted force to complete the railroad to Lake Erie We hope and trust that this will be the case. In deed it appears to us that we are only in the com mencement of railroad speculations, and the period when fortunes will be made out of railroad stock i 'a of ^e holders. I? France and ?eemsnto'?. "d! C?"nnent'ra,,road ?l?culation ?eems to be rap.dly reaching its highest point. For rr.,h"' thing that checks speculation i. ,he uncertainty of our foreign relations with England and Mexfco The stringency of the money market also operates in the same way. In regard to the latter point ac cording to the best intelligence, the banks throagE out the country appear to be increasing their circu lation and credits to a most extraordinary extent ? and it is now supposed that the currency is nearly as much inflated as it was in 1835-88, only the popula ?on and business of the country are greater and ,Trf' afIlount ?f currency.

Business or Buildino CiirnrHXs?We are very happy to observe that the business of building churches and erecting elegant structures for the worship of God, promises to be very lucrative and very fortunate. There are a number of new churches in the process of building up town, but as yet only one, that of Dr. Potts, has taken the field, finished, with its pews all prepared and fixed for sale. We gave some few facts connected with the first sale of pews last week, but the following is the official re cord which has been published in some of the papers A'ot. Avprital.

The annual rent is besides paid for each pew, out of which the salary of the pastor is supplied. This is the mode in which churches are erected and con gregations assembled, and saints made, and salva tion effected in this our day. It was very different in the times of the Apostles. Their pews were the grassy mouuds in some retired spot,(or the rocks by the sea shore, and to the poor the gospel was preached. The five loaves and two sm> hee would go but a short way now-a-days. The Magnetic Telegraph between tins city and Philadelphia will be completed by the 10th of next month. The wires extend up to Fort Washington, then across the North River, under water?pass through New Jersey to New Hope, and from thence down the other side of the Delaware River to Phi ladelphia. It is supposed that this communication will be completed between Philadelphia and Balti more by the 1st of December, but some doubts are entertained about its being finished in so short a time. The line between New York and Washing ton will then be complete when both these lines are finished. Preparations are in progress to carry out the project so as to unite Buffalo and New York, and New York and Boston. All these lineB of commu nication will probably be completed before a year is over. The effect of the establishment of magne tic telegraphs between the great points of civiliza tion and business cannot be calculated at this early day. Violations of City Ordinances.?It will be per ceived by a reference to the Police Intelligence of to-day, that no less than 132 complaints were last week preferred before the Chief of Police for viola tions of city ordinances. The new Star Police are gradually correcting many of the abuses which have been so long permitted to exist. After the ranks shall have been thoroughly cleared oi all " black sheep" which have unavoidably crept in, and the faithful officers shall have had a little more experi ence in the business of catching thieves, there is reason to believe that far less crime will be perpe trated in the cfty than has been the case for several years past. Packet Ship Ashore.?The Pilot Boat Charlotte Ann, reports the packet ship Patrick Henry ashore at 8 o'clock, yesterday afternoon, on the S. W. Spit Sandy Hook. The weather being very heavy, they were unable to ascertain precisely her situa tion, but supposed her to be in an easy position, and would proceed to sea at high water. She left her dock at 12 o'clock, and had on board a merchant pilot at the time she struck. Mortality in New York.?There were one hundred and seventy-eight deaths in this city last week. This indicates a healthy city. Theatricals. Park Theatre.?Mr. and Mra. Charles Keen re-ap peared at the Park last night, it being the first of another ahort engagement here. Warm and hearty as has been their reception on these shores, on all occasions, in this and other cities, on which they have met the public pro fessionally, not one of them 'exceeded that of last night for s hearty and sincere greeting. In "Much Ado About Nothing,'* Mrs. Kean took the part of Beatrice, Mr. Kean that of Benedick. It is quite astonishing to see the versstility displayed by both of these accomplished actors, who, from the deepest tragedy, the profoundest analysis of the human mind and passions, can slide with facility into the playful, sparkling, and humorous phases of character. This is evidence that it is genius that guides, not mannerism that directs them to excellence, and that seizes so deeply on the minds of observers, as was visi. ble last night. Mr. Bland played the "Prince"?Mr. Dyott appeared as Clsudio?Mr. Barry aa Leonato, and Fisher as Antonia?and Hero was cleverly represented by Mra. Abbott. iThe scenery, by Mr. Hillyard, was very beau tiful-, and, altogether, this admirable comedy was de lightfully performed. It were quite uncalled for to speak of the throng in the house, for that is a thing of course, when the Keans appear; they were called out after the first pieee, and "much ado" made about them in the heartiest plaudits. After a dance by the Misses Vallee, the whole force of the corps diamatii/ut appeared in the extravaganza of "Fortunio"- it excited extreme mirth and gaity in the house until the curtain fell, and all the actors seemed to do their best, and that very successful ly. Mr. and Mrs. Kean appear to-night in "Hamlet"? this will bs a powerful attraction Bowkry Theatre.?At this establishment the " dog star" still " rages." Last evening there was s perfect -rush to witness the beautiful performances of Messrs. Coney and Blanchard, and their wonderful dogs. The drama in which they appeared was called the " Idiot of the Shannon." Mr. Coney's pantomimic acting is very beautiful, and the exploits of the dog can hardly be des cribed. Previous to the drama tha laughable farce of Sprigs of Laurel was played, and the evening closed with the beautiful drama of Mazeppa, in which Mr. Mil. ner played the hero, and lashed on his Indian mare Pocs hontas, dashed up the steop in terrific style. Wa have the same bill to-night. Castle Oaioxn.?The burlesque opera singers hav ing been prevailed on by the managers of this highly popular place of resort, to remain another weak, appear ed again last evening in the laughable opera of tha i ? Virginia Girl," a burlesque of the " Bohemian Girl." All the music of the original opera was sung. The au dience was kept in a perfect rotr of laughter throughout the whole. Previous to the burlesque, s vocal consort waa given by the company. This is positively the last week ot this company. To night w# have the same Mil Palmo's Oyera Herar.?The Kthloptan Herenaders had another great house last night. The great numbtr of strangers that are now in town from all parts, visiting the fair, will doubtless avail themselves of the opportu. nity of visiting these far-lamed artists. Their songs, that are unrivalled in execution and musical taste, still enchBRt every one who hears them, and their sparkling 6on mois.curiota conundrums,and general sty la of acting is well calculated to sustain that popularity which they have so fully acquired. They perform again this even iug, as usual, and eveiy evening this week The diorama of the Battle of Bunker's Hill is exhibit ting at Portland, Msine.

The gong sounds?the members of the orchestra rush into their box?the first Addle runs his fingers through his hair?looks around with an air of command?crash crash? fiddle-de-de?fiddle-de-di -a grand flourish and the curtain rises. The characters in " Change Makes Change," are "Har. ry Vanquish," (Crisp,) a warm-hearted, reckless young gentleman from Iowa--who visits New York in conse" quence of an advertisement published by "Mr. Nathan Bunker," (Chippendale,) a thorough-bred down-easter> who had, as supercargo of a vessel trading to the East Indies, discovered that a large property had been lei* there to Harry by his uncle. Harry is met at the steam boat landing?very prettily painted by Rengough?by Nathnn, who had just bartled the attempts of two gentle men of the swell mob,"Tamper,"(Gallagher,)and "Drift wool (T.t'lacide,) to "come the drop game over hlm.'i A recognition takes place, and it appears that Harry has not come to New York solely for tho purpose of " hear ing something greatly to his advantage," as advertised by Mr. Bunker. Nati *n.?And have you come all the way to York jestfoi that? . Van mi ?No, not exnctly for that. 1 have another ol ect, but it is no concern of yours. (Draws a glove i fj h ket > Ah !

" , ... Nathan?No, let us go in the Harlem cars. (Laugh ter.) " Nathan" and " Vanquish" accordingly set out for the residence of Madeline, and so ends thefflrst scene The next scene opens w 1th a view of the residence of "Mr. Lionheart,''(H. Placide,) and introduces that person age and a " Mr. Remnant." (Sefton ) " Remnant" is ?? old bachelor and an old fool. " Lionheart," a second edi tion of the respectable " Mr. Caudle." " Vanquish," makes his appearance?is recognised by " Madeline"?a very tender scene follows?and the curtain falls on the lovers, locked in a fond embrace, and before the second set opens, their msrrisge is supposed to have taken place in spite of the opposition of " Mrs. Lionheart," (Hauton ville,) who had determined that " Madeline" should have wedded " Remnant." The second act introduces " Vanquish" in the charac ter of a very inattentive husband?he stays out at night and Is, in fact, a very naughty man. " Madeline" is, o f course, very much vexed; and just in the midst of her domestic trials, her brother, " Captain Fitzhugh," (Wal cott) arrives?discovers that she is not kindly treated by her husband?and prepares for inflicting punishment on wieked Mr. Vanquish, in the meantime " Tamper" and " Driftwood" also make their appearance, with the chari table intent of victimising "Vanquish," and again en? counter " Nathan." TAMrea?Ahem ! great country this, sir? Nathan?Wal, the country will feel flattered when it knows you said so. (Laughter.) It is a great coun try, sir, and every thing in it is great. Tampf.r?I have no hesitation in saying that's a very just remark. DRirTwooo?Very striking, if I may be allowed the expression. Natii an?Havent we the greatest cataracts in all cre ation? Tamffr?True, sir. Nathan.?The greatest women ? Driftwood.?Oh ! no doubt of that ! Nathan.?The greatest steamboats ? T*?irea.?Fact, sir. Driftwood.?Fact! Nathan, (laying a hand on each.)?And the greatest rascals, eh ? Vanquish, misled by the representations of a waiting maid, "Nelly," (Watts) imagines that his wife has net at all regretted his absence from home, and not mourned his neglect, and suspects that she does not love him. foolishly resolves to absent himself still more?sets off to the races with old "Lionheart"?loses a great deal of money?eventually falls into a trap laid for him by the swindlers "Tamper" and "Driftwood,"and embarks in the great "Klmearah Land Co." .Meanwhile, Capt-iFitzhugh arranges a pretended elopement with his sitter "Made line," for the purpose of bringing "Vanquish" to a sense of his duty, and carries her off in his absence, leaving the servants to imagine that she has voluntarily forsaken her husband for an old lover. "Vanquish" comes home, and is overwhelmed with remorse and indignation. He arms himself with a pair of pistols, and hurries off to the house of Fitzhugh. Vanoi-ish.?Here are pistols, sir, choose and give the word. Fit*.?It is'nt my humor to fight you. Van*.?It was your humor To wrong me. I seek re dross - immediate?fiual. Villain, if you will not defend yourself, die! (Snaps the pistol.) Fitzhi-oh.?Now, then, we will discuss matters peaceably. You are weaponless. Vanhl i""-?Not yet, as you shall feel. (Uushas on Fitzhugh.) Fitzhuoii.?My sinews happen to be the stronger? that's all. Be seated. Let your anger die out. You think 1 have done you the cruellest wrong that man can do to man. You reek satisfaction. You shall have it?but at my convenience?Are you content? Vanquish.?Content! f accept your piomise. We shall meet again. Fitz?Stay ! For your own sake hear me. Would you not call that man a wretch who would atrike a wo man ? Vanoi-ish.?Why ask me that ' Fitz.?Be patient?you would despise the craven crea ture who could inflict a blow ?yet there are wounds of the tongue, ot the look, of the manner, as cruel if not as cowar<fiy--and thase you have given unsparingly to e woman-ay, a weman. Vanouih.? Who ate you, sir, that have the sublime audacity thus to accost the man you have so deeply in jured ' I came for vengeance and receive a lec ture !

Q,| tie me like Mazeppa to a steed untamed and fierce, and send him through a stormy wilderness, rattier than mate me with the wretched ohject whom such a tamper curses. Ah '. sir, an unkind word, forgotten soon as spoken by the husband, may in the gantier heart of woman sink, and close her household day with deepest gloom ! You think this a trifle. An aggregate of triflea makes a life ! "Vanquish consents to see "Madeline" and they meet, but she supposes that be had discovered the trick played upon him, sml treats him with affected coolness,-he ft tiros suddenly, overwhelmed with telf-roproaoh and despair?and Madaiina faints away in tha arms of har brother. In tha aaantima, however, "Mrs. Fitzhugh," (Matthews,) discovers that har husband has racairad a strange lady into his house whom ha heaps concealed and her Jealousy is naturally excited. But aha ascer tains the secret by the exercise of a little womanly taet, ami visits "Mr. Vanquish" to whom she reveals it, and then arranges with him a counter plot.?which is suc cessfully carried out by a capital love scene between them, got up just as "Fitzhugh" and "Madeline" enter the room. It is now the time of "Fitzhugh" to feel the pangs of jealousy. He flies to demand satisfaction from "Vanquish." , Fitziii'oii?Sir, I must have satisfaction. Vanquish?Sir, you shall have it?but at my conve nience?are you content ? Fitzhuoh?Content! Follow me, sir. Vanquish.?It isn't my humor to fight you now. Be sides 1 left mv pistols at your room, he, he, he ! Fitz.?And this is your revenge ! Young profligate ' (Attempts to strike him.) Vanquish.?(Arresting him)?My sinews have grown stronger, you see. Now, sir, listen to a little reason ? Won't you sit down ? Well, no matter. Sir, what a heaven on earth is wedded life, when husbands have no secrets from their wives.

O, take your triumph?a settling day will come?you shall hear from me again. Vanquish?At your pleasure. Fitzhuoh?O madness ! misery ! (Exit.) Vanquish?I could almost cry with laughter. Whilst all this is going on, "Mr. Lionheart" turns the tables on his cara sposa?takes counsel of Nathan?and assumes bis "prerogatives,"?"Vanquish" is swindled out of roost of his property by his connection with the great "Kimereah Land Co."?"Remnant" is most unsuc cessful in his suit for the hand of "Rachel," (Mrs. Wel cott) daughter of old "Lionheart"?"Nathan" fares no better in the same quarter?and at last all parties, being pretty well tormented, a general explanation takes place, and all again is "happy as a marriage bill." The last act closes? Fitzhugh (shaking' hands with Vanquish.)?Well, brother-in-law, these little changes through which we have passed, have'nt been without their lessons, I hope.

Our patient hearers, I appeal to you, Married and single, if it De not true ! Let fortune vary?let the world look strange, For noble hearts not even change makes change. And then the curtain fell on "the new Comedy." It 1s a very xnequal production. It bears certainly many marks of talent, but it can hardly be dignified by the name of a Comedy. Mr. Sergeant is capable of a much more meritorious dramatic effort. Cut down, and made more spicy and sparkling, " Change Makes Change" would make a very tolerable farce,but in its present form it can hardly have great popularity. It wentofi, however, in a highly respectable manner, and was received with marked kindness on the part of the audience. Placide made the most of his part. Walcott played, as he al ways does, with good rtaste and judgment. Crisp, so, so, dressing in shocking bad taste. Tom Placide was very comical?Sefton capital. Mrs. Mowatt sustainod her part with characteristic gracefulness and spirit. Mrs.. Walcott had very little to do, but looked very charming, and her toilette was perfection itself. Miss i Mathews' performance was lady-like, and marked by great vivacity and good taste. There were loud calls for the author on the fall of the curtain, in which Mr. Herbert, Park Benjamin,and a few other distinguished literary personages joined with a de gree of enthusiasm that attracted general observation, but Mr. Sargoant did not respond to the call. Mr. Crisp however, came before the curtain and muttered a few sentences, which were altogether unintelligible. I was understood that he announced the corned* for repetition to-night, when we have no doubt that the saloon will be as crowded as it was last night That the first representation of this new comedy attracted such a crowded and respectable house, is not only highly complimentary to the author but shows the readiness with which the American pub lic is disposed to patronize native dramatic talent. Olf. Bull's Concert.?The great maestro gave his second concert last evening, at the Tabernacle. The house was well attended, though the unpleaiant evening had some little effect on the number of his audience? ?till, some fiiteen hundred, who were not to be daunted by lowering clouds, from hearing the great Norwegian Orpheus, assembled together to greet him As usual the applause was most enthusiastic when he made his appearance, but on tha artist's assuming his stand on the platform and grasping his violin, tho most intense silence reigned among the audience?every tongue was hushed and each one breathed sofUy In anticipating (ho witching sounds of his violin, nor were they disappointed, for thi beautiful piece of composition, the "Sicilians Tarantella was well worthy of its great composer. Previous to its' performance, Mr Duffield.who is a most pleasing and nro mising young artist,sung the aria from the Damo Blanche of "Ab what delight a Soldier Knows," accompanied by Mr. Kurs on the piano. In tho course of tho evening be also sung Mr. Braham's famous song of "Stand to w, a, orchestral accompaniment. Ole Bull himself, also played the fantasia of the "Mountains of Norway,' the "Carnival of Venice," and the "Polacca Guernera. Miss Northall, who has become quite a favorite with the concert going public, sang two airs from Anna Bolevn, viz: "Ah, why desire to light that face," and "By that consuming quenchless flame," with her usual taste. On the whole, the concert, as ali of Ole Bull ? doings do, went off well. The orchestra was well regulated?the piano accompaniments were excellent, and as he intends giving another concert on Saturday evening next, when he will introduce a new piece called the "Memory of Washington," we are sure that those of the public who have not hitherto heard this great won der ol the musical world, will take that opportunity of Police Intelligence^ Oct. 6 Robbery at the City Haiti.?A package of silver ware, consisting of silver forks, silver spoons salt spoons, sugar tongues, Rc., of the value of about $600 was this morning stolen from the trunk of Captain C k' Davie, matter of the ship Emily, at present stopping' at City Hotel. The property was marked "Emily," the name of the vessel. '' Maliciout Trttpatt? Home young ladies residing at No. 126 Bowery, on returning home from church last evening, were lollowed by a fellow named Bern 8 Thorp, who, after they entered the house, knocked at the door and inquired for some female, and notwithstanding that he was informed that no such person was there hi forcibly intruded himself. The young ladies, becoming alarmed, took refuge in their rooms, and looked their doors when the rowdy smashed the panels of the doors but the policemen being sent for,Jhe thought proper to make his exit. He was subsequently arrested and j? default of $200, the amount of bail required he'was da tained to answer. Seduction and Deitrlion.-An interesting girl, about 16 years old, named Maria Smith, was last night found in one of the streets in the lower part of the city, in a most pitiable situation, being in a lar advanced state of nreg nancy, so much so as to require prompt attention She appeared to be laboring under a disordered state of mind and whon found was calling upon her seducer to come to her assistance She was sent to Bellevue Hospital,where it is hoped that she will receive the attention which her unfortunate situation may require Cercert.en.-In consequence of the illegible manner in which the police returns of one of the wards were made out on Sunday last,the reporter was led toinsertthe word tttahng instead ofitabhing. in the case of James Wade Trovers' arr*,ted for a,,,lult'nK and stabbing William B.

This grand exhibition waa opened to the public yesterday at noon, and though the day and evening were very unpropitious for visitors, still there were an immense number of the curious congregated,and all the avenues in the garden were completely throng ed with examiners of the many beautiful articles that are there displayed. In giving a description of this Fair, the journalist is fairly at a loss where to commence, so varied is the scene,and so many are the objects that call one's attention, but we will endeavor to detail in sue.'! or der as we can, the doings at this place; for this u jr pose we would request the reader to place himself by our side and enter from Broadway, having duly purchased his ticket. He will then be introduced into the long covered promenade which stretches down the full depth of the garden. The coup d'ceil ol this part is most beautiful. Immediately at the head of the walk he will see a most beautiful family wagon, of the most admirable workmanship, and a little below that, there stands the Phenix Hose Cart, the splendid painting on which would lead one to imagine that it was intended for any other use save that of battling with the llames ; it appears more fit to ornament a drawing room. The credit of the workmanship belongs to Mr. Monarty. On the left hand side, we observed some improved Refri gerators, from the manufactory of Mr John M. Smith, of No. 185 Church street.? These, from their appearance, one would likewise suppose to be parlor ornaments, so highly finished are they, and we doubt not they would aflord to those using, that "cold comfort" which in these ar ticles are so much required; below these again we come to a couple of baths, shower and vapor ; these are the patent of Bates, and from the ease and com fort with which they can be used, are a desideratum I in their line. On the right hand side are displayed a number of cooking, parlor, and in fact all kinds ol I stoves; the peculiarities of these articles we had not time to examine yesterday, but shall give an account of them to-morrow ; they are there of every pattern, shape and plan that has ever been invented and well worthy the attention of all who are interested in these articles?and who is not! more particularly at this season of the year. Passing further down the promenade to the right, after passing a beautiful club boat, we observe an entrance to a separate apartment, and in this are deposited the bones of the great llyarargos Sillimanii; yes, there they are. ead, tail, ribs and all, the last of the sea serpents, ?done in his glory, and who, we should like to know, hasla better right to a place in the great Fair than the serpent 1 Is ne not American, and the greatest of his kind 1 After having peeped in and surveyed his wonderful bones, let us walk onwards and survey the beautiful display of fruit and flowers that grace these walks ; look at these long counters each covered with an assortment of dahlias, from our most splendid nurseries; see with what infinite'taste they have been spread out, the different shades of color in each flower; harmoniously blending with those of the bud next to it; but when we say that specimens of the art of the following gardeners are here to be seen, the public may imagine how perfect the show must be : Messrs. Keid, Htafl ; Hogg & Sons.Bu! chanan, Niblo, Dunlap and Carman, have each an assortment on the ground. Now come we to the fruits, which on either side are displayed in all their beauty, pears, peaches, plums, apples, grapes, all combine to render very necessary the poetical warn ing to withstand temptation which is hung up over them. The lower part of the walk is decorated with mammoth egg plants and pumpkins, compared with which Cinderella's famous one which served her for a coach and six, was but a millet seed. Re turning up again, we see two splendidly finished flour barrels, marked in golden letters L. A. Spald ing, Lockport, and these contain some of our best wheat flour, so pure and white that it might easily be mistaken for newly fallen snow-drift. Ave have heard some rumors of these being destined for transmission as a present to the Queen of England. Should they go, they will doubtless prove a strong argument for the reduction of the corn laws in Eng land. Side by side with the flower we see a speci men of another of our staple productions, viz?the cotton plant, a healthy bush of which is here pre sented to us. Let us now pass into the space that lays between the promenade and the grand saloon ; here we see a fine set of bells, four in number, whose beautiful mellow tones remind us that they have literally speaking, a silver sound; they are of different sizes, the largest weighing 1207 pounds, and from the foundry of Mr Meneely. Ranged on the coun ters at the sides, we have specimens of earthen 1 ware from the different works in New York, some 1 from the Salamander Works of Cannon street are very handsomelv executed, and a mammoth water jug from another set of works is a magnificent piece of workmanship. The fire-bricks, stove-linings, and other articles, are all deserving of the highest commendation, and the vases, both burnt ana un burnt, are of the most classic designs. Before entering the grand saloon, let us now step ound to the fountain, where we have some most ingenious inventions displayed. One that we saw in operation yesterday struck us as being the embodiment ot an idea which is destined to work great improvements in canal matters; it was a ma chine for propelling canal boats by the power ot wa ter. In the working model it succeeds admirably It is intended to work by extending a small trough of water along the side of the canal, at the elevation of several feet from it. To the side of the boat is at tached an upright tube, the lower end of which is curved so as to discharge water in a horizontal di rection opposite to that in which the boat is to he propelled, the reaction of the water discharged from this tube drives the boat forward. At the height ot several feet the tube is curved over in a direction at right angles with the boat, terminating some little distance below the highest part of the curve, form a siphon. When a canal has once been prepared for this invention, as it may be at a small cost, it will obviate the necessity for horse or steam power. It is the invention of Mr. Echols, of Georgia. Let us now pass into the grand saloon The scene here is beautiful, as this apartment is more es pecially devoted to the exhibition ot the more deli cate articles of American manufactures. On the left hand entrance, the first table is that of Mr. Roussell of Philadelphia, who exhibits an unrivalled assortment of soaps of all kinds ; his table is deco rated with busts of Washington and Franklin made of solid 4,soap?yes, reader, soap?and nothing else, but such soap, so solid and white, that every one mistakes it for the real Canova marble. He has also seven large cakesof the same article weighing in all 1400 pounds. Passing down the left hand side towards the clerk's desk, we see a variety of arti cles which we shall notice more particularly here after ; they include specimens of needle work and millinery, habits, clothing, Neapolitan bonnets, some most beautiful little statuettes in marble from the studio of Baronto, in Canal street, cabinets, work-boxes, tea-caddies, varied work in silk, &c The whole of the articles contained in this room require a more special description than we can give them from our survey, yesterday, and we shall de vote Bpecial attention to them to-day. The room to the right of the Grand Saloon contains also so many beautiful articles that we must also pass that over till to-day's examination can give us a better op portunity of speaking of it. . Passing up into the room occupied by the City Guard as an armory, and which has been tempora rily diverted from its legiiimate use, we are struck with the sterling exhibitions of the advance of Ame rican manufactures and enterprise : here we see spread in profusion the most durable and highly finished articles of cloths, casimeres and woollen foods that we have ever seen issued from any fo reign manufactory ; ginghams, book-muslins, mo* quito netting, cottonades, white muslins from dif ferent mills, among them we may name Messrs Wethered, Brothers, of Franklin Mills, near Balti more ; S. Woodward, Milbury, Mass.; Gilbert it Stevens, Wart, Mass ; Welcome Kamum, Water ford, Mass.; The Leeds Manufacturing Company ; Dorastus Kellogg, Skeneatles, N. Y7; and many others. . The steam engine was not in operation during the time of our visit yesterday, and we. therefore, de fer a more particular description of the many very ingenious and remarkable inventions displayed in the room to which it is attached, and which require its Promethean touch to display their beauties The evening's exhibition closed with a splendid display of Pyrotechnics. The Fair will beopened this morning at 9 o'clock.

Franklin Hall.?The attendance this morning was more limited than on any preceding day, und the interest which the public manifested in the pro ceedings ot this body is evidently slackening. Mr. JuriTEB Hciisa, who styles himself Professor (but of what scienco he does not say) sent his plan for the regeneration of man to the Convention,in the form of a letter. His plan is, in the first place to have a general spiritual and political revolution over the world,in which all lords, kings, princes and nobles, who claim the world and its inhabitants as their own, should fall, then these principles to be established. No man to have over 300 acies of land. 3. Ail men to be industrious S. All men to receive a good moral education ; and 4 Those means which are now used by governments for the support of armies and navies to be appropriated for that purpose.? lie concluded by saying ne was in favor of equal rights, equal liberty, and equal justice to all men. Amen. Mr. Robebtson explained, at considerable length, on his plan, which, he said, was the best yet offered to the convention, and the one best calculated lor the objeot in tended. In the course of his remarks he gave a history to the convention of his past experience?how he had been knocked down and abused by his lather, to suoh a degree as to make the blood flow from his eyes, ears and mouth ; and haring been interrupted several times by some of the members present, he said he would put it to the meeting, whether they were in favor of his continu ing or not. The question was put by Mr Owen, and the convention decided against Mr. Robertson making any further remarks. The Chaib being about to submit Mr. Robertson's the ory and propositions to the conventien, for reception or rejection collectively, Mr. Robertson insisted upon the propositions being laid before the convention separately, the same course that was taken on the ethers, when Mr. Peebles, understanding the Chair to decline so do ing, but to submit them collectively, insisted that they should be put separately. Mr. Owen then put it to the convention to say how he should put the proposition, and the convention deoided his propositions. Mr. Robertson's proposition to form a society was then submitted to the convention and re jected ; and his plan for reform was also put and met the same fate. Mr. Robertson, apparently much mortified at therejeo tion of his plans, then got up and said, he protested against the decision of the oonveution,as it had by previ ous votes accepted plans which were based on the same principles as his was. Alter some discussion concerning the right of Mr. Peebles to the floor, that gentleman took the stand. He said he wanted an opportunity to discuss Mr. Owen's plans. He then read from the Hew York Herald a para graph, that the Owenite Institute in John street, Totten ham Court Road, London, had been sold out, and the in stitution defunct; and speaking at Mr. Owen, he said that that gentleman has been for sixty years past endea voring to reduce his theories for the reformation of man to practice, and was as near the object at first as he is now?by holding forth prospects which never could be realized, and by the lascinating tones of his voice, al lured mechanics and others from their workshops to hear him discuss theories which never can be practically car ried out, as long as human nature is constituted as it is. But he has no doubt that Mr. Owen is a believer himself in his theories, for he never saw a man who had a greater share of the milk of human kindness in his heart?but the end of all his plans, and of those that were laid before this convention, is the distribution of property equally, and that is impracticable. Besides, Mr. Owen has not said one word about slavery ; not a word about the shrieks and cries of agony uttered by the slave, on being sepa rated from lus children; not a word about the agony the lash occasions. A person rose to a point of order, He said? The institutions of the South are not to be villlfled (de cided hissing andlfaint applause) in this manner. Were you ever at the South, sir? (continued hissing ) Yes, you know where to hiss.- [He was requested to sit down.] I cannot sit down, sir, and listen ti> a man caricaturing the Southern institutions, who has never been there. Mr Peebles continued?It is computed that there are in the United States 3,700,000 slaves. Would it not be well for those philantrophists to propose a system of taxation in the North to purchase those slaves, that is practicable and certain to be attended with good. would be an advantage to the North, those slaves who are now fed and clothed at a cost of *15 a year, would, when free, expend *100 a year at least in their support; and the ad ditional materials for their support would be drawn from the North ; instead ot being clothed in negro cloth, they would wear broad oloth,which would add to the revenue of the United States. Mr. Owen, we want your plan, you are now talking against time. Peebles?By talking against yours,! am sustaining my own. Well, as you interrupt me so much, I will come to the point, premising that if the Convention adopt my first proposition they will, per it, reject all plans laid before it. Mr. Peebles' first proposition was then put. Resolved, That the general principles of humanity and equal rights for our political basis, as entertained by Mr. Owen and ether members ef this Convention, are just so far as they do not interfere with the individual right of every man to the enjoyment of what he legally acquires by his industry and intelligence, which mutt ever rank separate from idleness and ignorauce?Carried. 3. Resolved, That no cause for censure exists in regard to the conduct of the Attorney General, the Oovereor or others in their official capacity, or members of the demo cratic party individually or collectively, whilst sustain ing the administration of the laws during the anti-rent trials ?Lost. 3. Resolved, That it will tend to improve the condi tion of society throughout the world, to abolish every species of slavery, and more particularly negro slavery, in this Union?provided it can lie so accomplished at not to render the white population subject to evils equally as great by so doing.?Carried unanimously. 4. Resolved,|That ignorance is the greatest obstaole to human happiness.?Carried unanimously. Mr. Owen then addressed the Convention. He thinks, when feelings are calmed, it will be acknowledged that he has listened patiently to all plans proposed. He called this Convention together to ascertain if there were any practical men in this country, who would oome forward and submit their respective plans for applying the enor mous poweis of society for the benefit of society, but he has not heard any plan of that character yet; it was to solve the problem of how this was to be effected, that the Convention was called. But the solvency of this quea tion requires time, attention and knowledge, which is not to be obtained in a few days or vears. I don't say so in disparagement ot any plan that has been laid before the Convention, lor there were a great many good prin ciples laid before the Society, and some good ones adop ted, and I believe all who came forward have been well intentioned, and did it with the wish of benefitting socie ty. I have given them a fair and full opportunity of placing their ideas, crude as they are, before the world, where they must sink or swim, according to their merit or demerit. 1 have now a task to peiform which re quires the patience and attention of the Society 1 mean to propose a practical means which will remove the causes of the evils of society. I have onl v the good of yourselves in view, for I have never asked any rewards from either governments or individuals. I will present a plan which will be of benefit to the present and all !u ture generations; that is the object I have in view, and I request time and attention lor me to express end for you to understand my principles, and to do this I must go systematically to work, and lor this object 1 have pat them in as small a compass as they will admit of. He then stated on statistical authority, that for 30 years crime in England increased 5 per cent in proportion to the popu lation; in Ireland 6 per cent, and in Scotland, hitherto considered the most moral country in the world, 40 per cent That 130 millions of pounds sterling were expen ded in the "French wars in the destruction of life and property, and all he wanted was 3,000,000 of dollars, to Form a model of society which would ensure happiness to all mankind. In speaking on the subject of slavery, he said he never was in the Seuthern part of the United States, but he had seen the slave system in the West In dies, and the system of white slavery in England Is more degrading. Afternoon Session. On the assembling of the Convention in the afternoon, Mr. Owen said that he had been mistaken in stating on Saturday that Mr. Rosevelt would be out of town on Monday; that gentleman had apian to offer, and be (Mr. O.) would willingly give way to him. He had looked into it and found it the only one of all which had com plied with the object?to provide a definite fend practical remedy. , Mr. Rosevelt then began with an outline of his plan, in the course of bis remarks he said that an entire'change of the currency was essential to the welfare of society?a change founded upon the use of labor notes. His plan would provide for self-defence, and medicine among the rest. He did not agree with Mr. O. In repudiating war; he was for war when necessary, ami thought the radicals of England wrong in not overthrowing their oppressors at once, and that O'Conne 1 was doing the Irish people much injury in not teaching them to strike. He did not agree with Mr. O , not because he was called no Chris tian, lor he believed that although he pnfeaaed no be lief in that, he cted up to its letter and spirit. Of the two children spoken of in Scripture, one of whom said he would go, and did not, while the other said he would not, but went. Mr. Owen was like the last, and would have his reward. The President said now was the time for members to make their remarks upon Mr. Rosevelt's system. Mr. Woodbury and Mr. Moray made a few observa tions, of ne great import. Mr. Hays enquired whether the plan was intended for a particular society, or capable of universal application As to labor notes, ne would ask Mr. Owen if it had not proved injurious in England 7 . . . Mr. Owen.?It was found to be extremely advanta ^*M*'h?ts. Well, It may have been ot use in this way.' It brought a great many people to give their labor'for these labor notes, which was equal to nothing; and so their eyes were opened. Mr Owen explained. The failure arose from the in discretion of some parties connected with the society, ?nd not from the system Itself Mr. Hats went on in the statement of his experience, n relation to this system, and gave several facts, as they iurported to be. in the most ol which he was corneoted iiy Mr. Owen; he was extremely unfortunate in his facts, tnd was n good deal laughed at The great difficulty was to find honest men until Mr. Owen showed how one could find them. Mr. Owen.?We have discovered a system by which we can make honesty and dishonesty to any extent. Mr. Hays.?8o it wax said, but that was one fancy, he had another. He would insist that ambition was the cause of all evil and he was ready to prove it. Mr. Rosevelt.?The only occasion 1 ever had in my life for calling a physician, was through having eaton too many gra|>es Will Mr. Hays tell me that ambition was the cause of that evil? (Much laughter?Mr. H looking very shoepish.) Mr. Owen succeeded in saying that he had heen de lighted with the plan of Mr. Rosevelt, more particularly as he had noticed the difficulties which ley in the way. Ifo was the more interested in the objections made, he cause tbey were the same as he had to meet and get over in his (Mr. O's) plun.
