The recent election in Maryland and the singular ly mingled character of its results, have created a great deal of remark and observation by the jour nals of the various parties throughout the country. The greatest sensation, however, happens to have been produced in the columns of the leading organs of the two parties in Washington. We allude to the administration organ, the Union, on one side, and the organ of the opposition, the Intelligencer, on the other. Singularly enough both these organs claim a great triumph?a mighty triumph?a won derful victory. The Union representing the views of Mr. Polk and his cabinet, thinks that the election is conclusive in favor of a reduction and modifica tion of the tariff, whilst the Intelligencer, or opjiosi tion organ, believes it to be amoral triumph against every thing like State repudiation. We are not sure but both parties are right?that they have a perfect right to mingle their cheers together; and therefore that those who go for the country, and not tor party alone,?as we profess to do,?may cheer on both sides,and clap their hands with both parties. But as this is a singular election and requires some special remarks, we will proceed to give first the facts as compared with the previous election re turns. Here they are :?

I*<4 35,984 32,676 >?? 28,631 30,559 Decreaie 7,353 2,117 2,117 local decrease in one year . 9,<70 From this curious and important table it will ap pear that the actual decrease in the number of votes in the State of Maryland in 1845, compared with the number taken in 1844, is 9,470. In this decrease the largest proportion consists ot whig votes, there being a decrease in the whig vote of 7,353, in one year, while the decrease is only 2,117 in the demo crats. This relates to the popular vote. As to the particular results in regard to the State Legis.ature and Congress, the facts vary in a remarkable degree. In reference to Congress the whigs have elected two and the democrats four members, giving them a ma jority of two to one in the Congressional delegation; whilst in the State Legislature the whigs yet have an aggregate majority of the two houses, equal to twenty over the democrats. There was ir. the city of Baltimore an eccentric movement consisting in an attempt to organize a " native " party, which I numbered 1,147 votes, but produced no other effect I than the defeat of a whig member of Congress in that city. These are the. curious results of this election* mingled and mixed up with a variety of opinions, ideas and inferences. From these results we tind the administration organ in Washington shouting victory?a tariff victory ; whilst the opposition or gan, the IntelliKcnrrr, sends forth an equally loud shout for an anti-repudiation victory?a mo ral triumph in favor of public credit. Now they are both right. And we rather think, that the singular result of this election shows the discrimination with which the people of Mary land regard the public questions alluded to, mingled, indeed, with the apathy of nearly ten thousand who care nothing about tariff, repudiation, or public faith at all. Out of the seventy thousand voters in Maryland, ten thousand it appears care nothing about the tariff" one way or the ether?care nothing about public faith?and are entirely silent as regards the public questions of hereafter. On the other hand, setting aside this, and considering the Democrats as being in favor of a modified tariff, there is only a small majority in Maryland decided ly recorded on that side of the question, although some of the leading Whig members have received their quietus by the eccentric "Native movement." There can be no doubt, therefore, that the elec tion in Maryland indicates the apathy of the great body of the people relative to the maintenance of the present tariff", and that they are rather in favor of some modification of that law than otherwise. Again, there can be no doubt of the other inference that the people ol Maryland, oppressed as they are by debt, are yet in favor of maintaining public credit, and of preserving their faith and repu tation as a State against all approaches of repudiation and dishonor. In both these respects, we agree with the organs ef the two par ties, and think much consolation may be gathered from the result in all points of view. Nor do we think there can be any doubt of the general fact, ihat the great masses of the American people, what ever fanatics and moralists may say, would prefer a modification of the present tariff on some equitable principle of compromise, than its continuance. Light Heading, or Mysteries of Paris in New Form ?The Chevalier Oalliardet, editor of the French paper published in this city, and who is now on a visit to Paris, is writing very curious let ters from that city for publication in his journal. They are written in rather singular taste, and the last one is particularly unique. In it the Chevalier enters into the mysteries of the student's life in the ! French metropolis, with what would be called in the west, a "per ect looseness " He gives a full description of the houses of ill-fame in Paris, fur nishing the names even of the most distinguished courtezans who are ^ubjectto the surveillance of the police, adding piquant details of the system pur sued for the purpose of" decoying the students to debauchery, shame and ruin. This, certainly, is a new sjieoies of the mysteries of Paris, and is rather curious reading for the refined and elegant circles of the French population of New York ! The fact is, these scribbling tourists are now so desperately driven tor matter, and the competition amongst ihem is so excessive, that they now resort, it seems, to the brothels and sinks of infamy, in order to find material with which to make their letters "inte resting !" Mvsical.?Antognini has arrived from Montreal, win re he gave several crowded concerts, attended by all the fashion of that city. 11.- intends return ing immediately to Toronto, where he is to super- I intend a grand musical festival?similar on a minia ture scale to those splendid ones given in England. Several artists have been already engaged by him Official Movements.?George Bancroft, Esq., the Hon. Becretary ot the Navy, arrived at the As tor House yesterday, with his family, from Boston, ind will proceed this day to Washington. Important Political Mission to Washington. We see by the newspapers that the Hon. N. P. Tall madge has gone to Washington, and we have un derstood from various quarters that he has gone on a very important mission, to speak with the Presi dent of the United States in relation to certain in tended arrangements between the conservatives as a party and him, previous to the last presidential election. It seems that alter the 'nomination of Mr. Polk, the conservatives had a meeting at Washington for the purpose of deliberating what they were to do with their political influence throughout the country and entering into some arrangement by which they would cast their votes for Mr. Polk instead of Mr. Clay, provided Mr. Polk gave them assurance of considering thetn his friends. In accordance with this purpose F. O. G. Smith, formerly from Maine, wrote a letter sanctioned by Mr. Tallinadge and concurred in by Mr. Walker, the present Secretary of the Treasury, and also by Mr. John L. Graham, 1 ostmaster of this city, with various other conser vatives. The letter was despatched to Tennessee and to it Mr. Polk gave a reply, consenting to all the conditions prescribed or enumerated by the con servatives. This reply was considered perfectly satisfactory by all those who held office, or expected to obtain oilice in case of Mr. Polk's election. But since Mr. Polk's accession to power, however, he has, it seems, forgotten this letter, as the conserva tives alledge, and they have all been removed from office, including Mr. Tallmadge, Dr. Sutherland, of Philadelphia, Mr. Graham, of this city, and many others. ' It now appears that in consequence of this alleged want of faith on the part of Mr. Polk, the conserva tives are organizing, and taking ground for operat ing at the opening of next session of Congress. Mr. Tallmadge has gone to Washington for the purpose either of ascertaining from Mr. Polk what he has meant by his faithlessness, or of making war upon him hereafter. A good deal of interest is felt in certain quarters as to what the result of this mission may be. There is a great deal of enquiry also as to the letters?that of Mr. Smith and Mr. Polk's reply, and we should not be at all surprised if we were to receive copies of both, which we would, of course, publish at once they not coming withing the category of private corresjiondence. In the meantime, we rather think that Mr. Polk's troubles are beginning. Many of his own friends are beginning to wonder what he will say about Oregon?whether he will back out from the opinions he expressed in his inaugural address, or persist in hip bold and national policy. Others are curious to know what he will say about the cheap postage. - Trouble is brewing. Telegraph on the Long Island Railroad.? The construction of the Telegraph line upon Long Island, was commenced last week. The design is to proceed with the main line of the Telegraph along side the railroad track, with branches to the ocean at several points. The first to Fort Hamilton, which will be completed this week. In addition to the advantages of transmitting in formation as to the state of shipping on the coast, it will afford great facilities to the Railroad Company by giving them the power to have perfect and cer tain information from each station on their road, as to the position of trains, as to the condi tion of the road, and as to any requisition tor additional cars to meet emergencies, that may occur, such as an unusual increase of passen gers or freight cars, such as extra trains or express es, fee., all of which will be very useful information to the managers of the road. In addition to all these, the Company possess the advantages of a straight and level track, as well as being the short est and most direct route to Boston, uniting speed and safety over any other route. New \ ork Pilots.?These worthy men seem oc casionally to brig out the ire of the Wall street pa. pers in allopathic doses. What is the matter now 1 We will explain to-morrow. Roguery in the Camp?We are sorry to per ceive from an advertisement in the " native" organ, that some rascals have been collecting money in the name of the party, and that the " funds" are in a state of extreme dilapidation. Still, it is said, to go into an election without cash. The rogues might have had the conscience to have waited till that tug was over. They must have some very bad " na tives" amongst them; but most likely they were rascally " foreigners" who robbed them. What'8 to be done? The party can't do without money. If no one else wili, we think we must ourself do some thing for the f>oor "natives." Therefore, we beg to state, that we will this day open a subscription list for the relief of the " natives" during the coming election. They are very much in want of funds, dear public?so step up and contribute. The smallest contributions thankfully received. The Lowell Factories.?Two of the morning papers of this city are quarrelling about the Lowel' factories and factory girls, and price of board there, and various things connected with that manufactur ing town. We have received a very interesting communication,with some documents,from our cor respondent at Lowell, which we publish in this day'8 piper. They will throw some light on the subject The system at Lowell is remarkable, and one which requires investigation and explanation, as having a most important bearing on the tariff- and action of the next Congress. We trust our correspondent at Lowell will give us as much information as possible relative to this highly interesting subject. National Intelligencer ?The proprietors of the National Intelligencer at Washington intend to conduct the Congressional reports with great spiri and fulness next session. The " Congressional In telligencer" will be issued at one dollar per annum ?the weekly paper at two dollars. National Reformers ?A meeting was held last evening by the National Reform party in Croton Hall Mr. Perkins was chosen as chairman. The Secretary rend the pledge, and stated that they had assembled to make their nominations of candidates for the Legislature, and he hoped they would pro ceed to it at once. 1 A motion was passed to that effect and the ballot ing commenced.

The performance waa "As You Like It" Be it ao?we do not like it at all; beyond the per. formance oi Rosalind, (Mrs. Kean) and Jaquea, (Mr. Kean) the whole waa but mediocre- tame. But there were some paaaagea well worthy of the admirers of the most valued dramatists of bye-gone times?to wit, the scene in act four, where Rosalind receives the bloody handkerchief. There was some curtailment of the text but nothing to mar the interest; it was moat beautifully and feelingly given, and was greatly applauded. The whole piece throughout waa well received. It may be that other pieces more attractive, with such talent, could bo forthcoming. "Fortunio" followed?Mrs. Skerrett, Messrs. De Walden and Fisher, well maintained their parts, and were greatly applauded Bowery Theatre.?Last evening a capital bill waa presented at thia'popular house?"Rookwood," the "Idiot of the Shannon," and a new farce called the "Railroad Station." In Rook wood,Mr. Milner played the character of the bold highwayman, and on his "bonny Bess," distanced hia pursuers and leaped the feucea in fine style. After Rookwood, the new drama of the Idiot ol the Shan non?in which Messrs. Coney and Blanchard, and their woudertuliy trained dogs appear,?periormed. Of this drama we have already spoken. No one should ne glect to witness the wonderlul performances of Messrs. Cany and Blanchard, and their trained dogs. Previous to the dramas the laughable farce of the Railroad Sta tion was performed, and went oft' amid great applause.? To-night the same bill is presented. Castle Garden.?This popular place of amusement still continues to draw good houses. Last evening the Virginian Oirl, and a vocal concert of well selectod music were presented. As this is positively the last week of the burlesque company, those who love fun will o| course give them a call. To-night Black Diabolo, a bur lesque on Fra Dievolo, will be performed. Niblo's.?The new comedy of " Change makes Change," was given last night for the benefit of the author. There was a very excellent house, and the piece appeared to give general satisfaction, if we may judge from the great applause bestowed upon it. At the conclusion, Mr. Sargent was loudly called for, but, after some little time, Mr. Crisp appeared and stated he was not in the house, but that he begged to return thanks for him. To-night "Change makes Change" will be re peated. Palmo's.?The Ethiopian Serenaders are drawing to a close; but a few nights remain?in fact, only this week. " Let those now go who never went before, And those who have, why, let them go the more." A bettor band of singers, and a more gentlemanly set> never appeared before a New York audience. The Philadelphia Bazaar opened on Tuesday last. J. R. Scott is performing at the Arch street Theatre, Philadelphia. Miss Delcy, whose health requires a relaxation from professional exertion, accompanied by her father, has proceeded to Long island to recruit her strength, previous to that lady's ultimate engagement at the South Fair of the American Institute at Nlblo's. We attended this Fair again yesterday. The ar tides have now been laid out with order and regu larity, and with the help of the catalogue, which is I for sale at the door, the visiter may indulge in seve j ral hours study of the many articles that are here exhibited. We would now give some more parti culars regarding the contents of the hardware room. It is replete with articles of beautiful workmanship and sterling worth. Among them we noticed the following Five new Parlor Grates, from W. and M. Jack son, Front street. The beautiful paintings in the centre of these are well worthy of notice. A Card of Herald Chasing from Jonathan Smith, Reade street. A case of Mineral Knobs. Church Factory and Steamboat Bells. A Computing Scale, an ingenious arrangement. A Case of Brushes from Provoort, Bowery. A Strap of Bells, f rom Hyatt, Piatt street. Umbrella, Hat and Blower Stands, from Moore, Dutch street. Machine for Racking Sand, from Crary, Norfolk street. . . ? _ , A Brass Clock from House, Fu.ton street. A case of Arkansas Oil Stone, from Smith, 219 Broadway. . A case of Stencil Engravings, from Pettis, Pearl A ease of Wooden Knobs, Risley, Fifth avenue. A case Weavers' Shuttles, from Mallory, Pine street. , ,,, , Knife Sharpeners, from Walton.Nmeteenth street. Two large Powder Horns, from Walton, Nine teenth street. , . Case of Coach Wrenches, FosterA: Co., Worces ter, Mass. Bureau Knobs, McBerth, Fifth street. Our columns will not allow us to make more full extracts. The read ing o f the catalogue by any person cannot fail to bring to the mind several very important re flections upon the peculiar features of the country, not only connected wilh this fair, but extending into the theory and practice of all our wants, habits, as sociations, and customs, and on this subject much might be written. . ... English travellers, on visiting the United States, are often apt to indulge in a strain of virulent abuse of all its habits and manners of living, forgetting that this country is made up of a completely distinct class of humanity lrom those seen in the cities of England. They draw their conclusions from the fact that English is the language spoken in the Uni ted States'; and that, therefore. Englishh habits ought to prevail: whereas, the truth is, that the habits of the continental kingdoms of Europe are much more prevalent throughout the land than English ones, and as a nation, we approximate much more nearly to the gay inhabitants of France and the . southern portion of the continent, than we do to the staid, sober, and prejudiced denizens of the foggy islands of Great Britain. And New York bears a much greater similitude to Paris than it does to London. In proof ol the community ol feeling that exists hetween us and the French, we may adduce the great zest with which amusements of all kinds are entered into by the people, and not only entered into, but enjoyed, not in the way an English crowd would enjoy it, that is in drunkenness, rioting, and coarse exhibitions, such as are still prevalent in many parts of Great Britain, but with the joyousand . ipirituelle zeal with which a Frenchman enters into a holyday. Witness the crowds upon crowds of Sunday pleasure seekers that during the summer months weekly pour out of the city; look at the hun dreds of cheap steamboat excursions that are also got up during those months; sec with what true plea sure dancing, music, and other refined amusements are appreciated. A working man, though but an humble mechanic during the week, on such days displays the innate sense of refinement which is in herent in the American people. Coni|?are our coun try villages, and their society, composed as it gene rally is of the store keepers, mechanics and farmers of the vicinity, with the same grade of |>eople in an English village, and how immensely superior are the Americans in the refinements of social inter course. But all this lsleadingusfromthe subject which we at present have in hand; still comparing New York with Paris, we could not help feeling our compari son Strengthened by the exhibition that wc beheld yesterday at Ntblo's. The Cloth Room is a place of surpassing interest to all who take a pride in the advancement of American manufacture. It appears that whilst poli ticians have been fighting about the probabilities of the tariH being altered?while, according to the par ty papers, our manufacturing interests have been plunged into the driest quagmire of distress, the people have taken the thing into their hands, and the proof is, that we have now on the ta >les of the American Institute, some splendid h|>ecimens of cUths, eassimereB, and other woollen articles, which we formerly were obliged to import, but now they are here all ready for use Turning from the cloths and cotton goods, we are greeted with the sight of all kinds of lancy articles, iScc. It were in vain for us to go through the whole catalogue of the things here exhibited. From time to time, during the continuance of this fair, we shall give an account of the different prominent points of it. For to day, let us say, the band of music dis coursed sweet rounds, the |>eop|e thronged through every avenue, fresh arrivals kept iKiuring in, exni itors of various articles were enlarging upon the merits of their goods, yet, there was no confusion, ! no noise or disorderly conduct; every one appeared ' to enioy this national exhibition in the spirit in 5 whicn it is intended. There was an address delivered yesterday at 12 ^ P. M , by Mr. II C. Westervelt, as an Introductory Speech to the visitors of the Fair, of which was much to the point, vnd we regret we have not room for its insertion To-day, at half past ten, the Convention of Far mers, Gardners and !Silk Culturista, meet at the Ly ceum of Natural History, nearly opposite Nibio's, great many delegates reported themselves already from various quarieri. In the evening, there will be an address at Dr. Dewey's church, si 7J P. M The Sacred Music Soeieiy |, ve volunteered. Tickets to the address will be given lo all purchasers of Fair tickets, anil tliey can be procured at the door of Niblo'a.

Grand Tkottow over the Beacon Course, Yesterday?Lady Suffolk Defrated.?On this course, yesterday, there was a considerable atten dance of the moat respectable character. The day was most favorable?the track in excellent order? and all went on well. The first piece of sport, which excited considera ble interest, was a purse $800?mile heats,best 8 in 5, in harness. D. Bryant enters sr. m. Lady Suffolk; W. Wheelan enters br. m. Dutchess. Both ani mals appeared in first late condition, but the Lady, previous to the Btart, showed evident symptoms of wayward temperament, and no wonder, she had been sweated under heavy clothes three times the previous day, round the track, making most wonder ful time. No doubt the able trainer and owner knows best; but it did appear, that on this occasion she was not able for the contest, but better another time. Notwithstanding, the betting previous to the start was, 20 to 8 on the Lady, with but few takers. They went away for the first heat?the lady on the inside. The word go was not perfectly understood, and David Bryant, as he approached the draw-gate pulled somewhat up to ascertain which caused his mare to break, and threw her some three or four lengths behind ere she recovered. Near the quarter pole she broke again, and repeated in a like manner ere she reached tne half. In the meanwhile, Duchess was making ahead, and led the Lady some ten or a dozen lengths round the top; still she fast made on her opponent, but with net much success; she gained considerably, but Duch ess came home some four lengths in front, amid con siderable cheerirg, in 2m. 37s. For the second heat, it was 2 to 1 on the Lady. She led the way In beautiful style, but towards the quarter broke, and lost a length or two; they reached the quarter in 41s., going most beautifully, from thence round the top; at the three-quarter pole Duchess was up, ana the Lady came in lront some four or six lengths. The Lady tnet with a like late near the draw-gate, and the Duchess came in front some two or three lengths. Bryant plied his whip bountifully, but it was too late, ne was some two lengths behind at the score?Dutchess winning in 2:35$. As usual, W. Whelan, the driver of Duch ess, made complaint, but the Judges overruled. It was now two to one on the Duchess for the third head. After some ten or a dozen attempts at a start, first one and then the other pulling up pre vious to th? word, considerable time was lost At length the word was given, the Lady taking the lead. They kept well together to the quarter in 40s. which they maintained to the half in lm. 17s. At the three-quarter <?e Lady led a length in front, making a most beautiful trpt. The excitement at this mo ment was most intense. At the drawgate the Duchess gained upon her most considerably?when she broke and her chance was out?the Lady came in a winner in 2m. 35$s The fourth heat?odds were as before The La dy led the way a length, but after passing the quar ter, they came up well together, w hich tbey main tained to and round the top to the drawgate coming in, the Lady if any thing taking the lead; but as she got inside this point, she made a most unfortunate break, which threew her chance up and Duchess won the money by some two lengths in 2m. 39s. The following is a summary:?

Ducheaa, (W. Whelan,) I I 'J 1 Lady Suffolk, (D. Bryant,) 3 3 1 3 Time3-37, 3-35$, 3-35j,3-39. The next was a piece of sport for a purse of $40, mile heats, best three in five. H. Jones entered br. m. Lady Washington Thos McKeon b. g. Peter Smith C. Bertinc b. g. Trouble W.Gllntoek b. g. Tom Moore A most interesting trot, and well contested throughout. In the second heat, just after the word was given, making a most beautiful start, P. Smith, who was third, somewhat pressed in upon Tom Moore ; the consequence was he broke, and in null ing up the sulky turned over, threw the driver. Mat Clintock, underneath, and went over him. Hiram Woodruff, with his usual good tact, turned out of his track to avoid coming in contact with his lallen op ponent, losing some five or six lengths, which threw his chance out. The sulky of Tom Moore recover ed its proper position, and the animal pursued its course without a driver or guide. At the quarter pole, he approached Trouble, who was leading on (he inside, and never was more presence of mind displayed on any occasion, than by the driver of the latter. Col. Bertine, when he heard the empty sul ky approaching, turned round and laid his whip unsparingly on the head and ears of the approach ing animal, which made it swerve to the outside.? This in all probability saved his life and race, and it took the lead at a fine running pace to near the drawgate, where a person mounted it and drove it home. The consequence was that all was confu sion, but after some consideration the judges deci ded that Tom Moore and Lady Washington were distanced. The result of the whole affair was as follows:? Trouble (Col. Bartine) 1 1 1 Peter Smith 3 3 3 Tom Moore 3 dis. Lady Washington 4 dig. Time?3:47, 3:46, 3:47?won easy. Trotting on the Union Course, Long Island.? The celebrated trotting horse Moscow, the winner of five races in succession without loosing a heat, will positively trot this day with Americas, Duchess and ttipton, for the purse of $200, two mile heats,in harness. Cars leave the South Ferry, Brooklyn, for the course. See advertisement. Rowing Match off the Elysiam Fields, Yester day.?A match for $100 was promised to come off as above, between the "Battery Pet." and "New York" boats, but only the latter showed, the former paying forfeit. The proprietor of the ground tnen offered a $10 purse for boats to row once round, lor which the following entered :? "Battery Pet," rowed by Charles, Thomas, and John Connor. "Gipsey," rowed by Henry and Stephen Roberts. "George Washington," by . The race was won by the Battery Pet, Gipsev second, George Washington, third It was well contested. More Trotting of Interest.?A match was made last evening for $400,that Lady Suffolk would j trot within two days, providing the weather and course was favorable, one mile in 2ni. 28s. The trot is to come off over tne Beacon Course to-morrow (Friday.) Although defeated, confidence is not lost.

It musters among their numbers eighteen veteran English players. Although out of practice, in tune let other clubs look to their laurels. Consumption in Newark.?The annunciation in this paper, a few days since, that about one-fourth of the deaths in Newark were of consumption, cre ated no little surprise, and it was not until a refer ence was had to the annual reports as they have ap peared in the Daily, that the statement could be con sidered as having a real foundation. Such a refer ence, however, snows the following astounding re sult :? Taking the four lent annual icturn* and the total number of death*, a* there stated, is lAi>0 Of these, Consumption is represented to have oc casioned 366 Inflammation.

Tha wires extend up to Fort Washington, and than cross the Hudson River under water. After crossing the river, they go through New Jersey to New Hope, and then alongside of the Dela ware liver to Philadelphia. They will be carried to Baltimore by the 1st of December, and there unite with .he Baltimore and Washington Telegraph already es tablished. The communication between this city and Washington will then be complete, and during the next session of Congress we shall get reports of votes, speech es, lie., nearly as soon as those who sit in the I apitol. Probably it will not be long before tne communication will be extended on the one side through all the Western and Southern cities to New Orleans, and perhaps to Galveston and Monterey ; and on the other, to Boston, Portland, and all the other " down east" cities. And tike a social party standing around a galvanic battery, their hands linked together, the sister cities of this great country will be firmly united by this magnetic bond, which none can separate, and the shock that agitates one, will, in the same moment, vibrate through the whole. Mr. Frelinqhuvsen.?We learn that last night Mr. Krelinghuysen was much better, so that hopes ate enter tained of his speedy restoration to health. Carriage Breasino ?There was quite an excitement created in Nassau street, yesterday afternoon, by a col lision between e carman and a gentleman driving in a light carriage. Tho carman was going up Nassau st., and when near the corner of Spruce street, the gentle man came driving down, and in driving past the carman who turned into the curb, to give him room, ran against the carman's wheel and broke the axle of his carriage short off. immediately insisted loudly that the carman should pay the damage sustained by the breaking of the axle and a crowd soon gathered around, who took sides with the respective parties, and an animated discussion took place, which was stopped by the carman quietly getting on to his cart and driving off. .... What's in a Name 1?In the upper part of the city is a poor tailor whose sign bears painted in hugli black let ters the name of William Shakspeare. Who knows but ho nooy bo & lineal descendant of tho immortal bard I A boot black on blast Broadway moants the sign of Henry Clay on the railing of his cellar ; and Robert Burns keeps a small thread and needle store in Orand street. Cattle Show.?The Westchester county cattle-show is now being held st White Plains. New Almshouse on Blacewell's Island.?The cere mony of laying the corner stone of the new Almshouso an BlackweU's Island was performed yesterday, at one o'olock, in the presence of the members ol both Boards of the Common Council and a few invited guests. From information which we gathered there we under stand there are at present upwards of fourteen hundred convicts on the island. Pocket Pickinu.?A gentleman in passing down Broadway last evening had his pocket picked of forty dollars. It was in the skirt pocket of his coat, and was probably taken out by some rogue while the gentleman was looking at the articles in a jeweller s window near Duane street. It is very strange that in such a city at this, where there is a regularly organized gang ot the most expert and experienced pickpockets, persons will be so careless in regard to the carriage of money about their persons. A pocket book filled with bank bills and thrust into a skirt pockot, can very easily be discovered by the gentry who make such things their study, and in a crowd it is the easiest thing in the world merely to lift out from the body the skirt of tho coat and remove the pocket book. II, however, the money is placed in a deep breast pocket, set well back near the shoulder, it will be much more difficult to be taken. In the act of feeling for it the rogue would run much more risk of being dis covered. it is, of course, always unsafe to carry large sums of money nbout the porson; but if proper care were exercised, there would be.but comparatively lew cases of pocket picking. Serenades.?A gentleman wishes us to call attention to a nuisance,which, if not remedied, will, he says, driva him mad. Being a man of steady habits, he says he re tires early, and is awakened every night about midnight, by a volunteer concert of oats and dogs in the yard of his next door neighbor. The caU sustain the treble and alto, while the dog howls a glorious bass. He wishes us to recommend these performers to the notice of the Musical Convention, as being subjects worthy of bring ing out. Seriously, there is nothing in this world so pro voking, as to be awakened from a sweet sleep, perhaps from a sweet dream, by tho howling of these animals, who make night hideous with their cries. No gentle man will keep such animals in bis yard to annoy his neighbors. Blocking uf the Streets.?The large square oppo site the Park, where the Harlem cars stop, has been for several days nearly blockaded with bales of bay. We should suppose that the railroad company had no right to make a depot of the public streets. Tammany 1ULL.-The addition to Tammany Hall is now nearly completed. When finished, Old "lammany will present an imposing front.

Meyers and John Southall, appointed for the purpose by the burean of naval conatrnction at Waahington. The performances of {ier engine and propellers came up to the most sanguine anticipations of all who have interested themselves in the subject. Attached to the boiler is a patent steam apparatus of Mr. Daniel Barnum, an invention which precludes the possibility of an explosion taking place through the scarcity of water in the boiler. It consists of a pump, which is worked by steam from the boiler by means of a tube adjusted to the top of it and passing down to the cylinder. The pumps act independently of the engine and the engineer. When the water in the boiler is at the proper level, a Host, which is contained in a box communicating with the watei in the boiler by a tube that extends below its Rurlace, remains quietly in its place. When the water gets itelow the proper level, the float defends with it, ana being at one end of a balance lever inside the boiler, causes a valve to open, and the steam to |wss through the pipe already mentioned, into the force pump, and sets the force pump instantly at work indeed, it the float descends ever so little, the pump is started and h supply ot water w furnished to the boiler, according to the amount of evaporation goiri. on. If by any accident the ptimpshould noi p-iform Us duty, the float acta by a very simple arrant" rn-nt upon another valve, connected with a iim tube, and the engineer in his room is inform that his supply ot water is not thrown in. Tt. i another imimrtant feature in this invention, ev. from its construction and arrangement, and th<u . , that it works as well when the boat is lying still a- it does when in motion, and with the aame regnluri'y and certainty. Thia pump can also be used to tree the hold from water in case of a leak, or aid in the extinguishment of Hre by forcing water through the hose to any part of the vessel ? Phil txdgn, (tft 8 C.
