NEW YORK HERALD. Ktw York, Monday, October 13, IMS, Steamship CJreat Britain. This steamer is now in her sixteenth day. It her profiler was altered, as contemplated, it was not to increase her speed, if we may judge by appear ances. She may, however, have had bad weather; aha certainly felt a gale yesterday if she was any where near this port. AntURenttam?A>v Upright Judiciary?Tho Unprincipled Party Preaa. There are now gratifying symptoms of the entire suppression ot that threatening spirit of agrarianism and rebellion, which has recently manifested itself with such alarmimr violence in the anti-rent dis tricts, ua they are called, of this State. The strong arm of the law has been exerted with a degree of vigor and promptitude, which has been entirely suc cessful in striking terror to the hearts of the mis guided men who had banded themselves together in illegal associations, and inspiring all good citi zens with the conviction, that the peace and stability of society will be pfes^^ed. This happy result has been owing to the manly and faithful administration of justice by Judgs Edmonds at Hudson, and Judge Parker at Delhi, assisted by Mr. John Van Burcn, the Attorney General of the State, who has, in the management of these anti-rent trials, well earned the approbation of the community. The conviction and sentence to the State Prison lor life, ot "Big Thundet," and the conviction at Delhi of Steen bu-gh, one of the murderers of Steele, the officer of the law who fell a martyr to his fidelity to duty, to gether with the energy and vigor manifested in the arrest of great numbers of these concerned in that and othsr outrages, and in the adoption of the ne cessary measures in bringing them to deserved punishment, have already had the most salutary effect. Peace and order have been restored?the ignorant and reckless have been impressed with the utter folly of rebelling against the laws?and anu rentistu has received an effectual check. The judiciary of our State has thus shown itselt to be equal to the critical emergency in which it was called on to fulfil the solemn trusts committed to its hands. And yet we find several of the party organs most zealously engaged in assailing the motives and conduct of the Judges who have thus, by their firmness, integrity, and patriotic fidelity to duty, saved the institutions of our State from de struction ! The Albany Argus, an organ of the demo cracy, and the Courier tf Enquirer of this city, an organ of the whigs. with a meanness characteristic only of the most debased party views, in the midst of the most important crisis, when the rights of property? 'he maintenance of the law's supremacy, and the safety of society, were endangered by rebellious and incendiary mobs, have actually come out and attempted to cast discredit on Judge Parker impugning his motives?and falsely asserting that he had usurped the powers of the Executive, and transcended thejust an ! safe exercise of hisfunctions as a judge. Every intelligent and impartial man? every one who is not given over, body and soul, to the vilest purposes of party, and who has obser ved the course of Judge Parker?knows full well that to his decision, firmness, energy and strict justice, tempered with a becoming leniency to those who were less guilty, must be ascribed?in connexion with the influence of Judge Edmonds'equally faith ful and energetic discharge of his duty at Hudson? the happy change which has taken place in the asj>ect of affairs in the interior of this State. Before these two ministers of justice commenced their labors, the in surrectionary movement presented itself in a most f ormidable attitude. The demagogues who headed it a'ul the ignorant and misguided men who followed t'tem, really imagined that theycould set the laws at defiance, with perfect impunity. Emboldened by ma nifestations of imbecility and timidity on the part of the Executive of the State, and goaded on in their wicked career of rebellion and outrage, b)bthe de praved organs of political faction?such as the Al bany Atlas, Argus, New York Newt and Tribune? the anti-renters were daily becoming more insolent and outrageous. They had murdered an officer of the law, and boasting of that cowardly and most brutal crime, announced their intention of maintain ing their resistance to the laws, even unto blood.? But this spirit of insurrection and violence is now beheld prostrate before the insulted majesty of the law ; and many of those who were so recently ar rayed against it, are now penitent supplicants for its mercy. And yet this unprincipled party press has the audacity to assail the judiciary by whose instru mentality the rebe'lion has been checked, and with unblushing impudence takes its stand with the crazy fanatics who attempt to excite sympathy for such chaps as " Big Thunder," and those concerned in me innuman muraer 01 ivir. Meete ! This movement on the part ot the party news, papers is, however, quite in keeping with their whole conduct in relation to the anti-rent rebellion, and also with the conduct of the miserable politi cians ol both parties. The spirit of agrarianism was diligently fanned and fostered by Seward and his faction?tampered with by Bouck and his clique? and truckled to in the most despicable manner by Gov. Wright and the party now in power in the State. How the enemies of republicanism must have chuckled over the melancholy spectacle of the party presses and corrupt party politicians,pandering to the evil passions, the agrarianism, and the rebel ious spirit of those concerned in the anti-rent move ment ! But an upright judiciary, and the independent press,have vindicated the patriotism and integrity of the republic Never, indeed, has there been afford ed a more signal illustration of the value of the in dependent newspaper press of the United States than in this instance. Whilst the JV?c York Tribune, the Morning Neirs, and other miserable organs of Party, were encouraging the insurrectionary move ment, the independent press was daily exerting all its influence and power in favor of the supremacy of 'he law, and the maintenance of the peace and good order of society. And now that the upright, manly, and honorablejudges to whom was happily confid ed, at a most important crisis, the vindication of the laws, and the punishment of the guilty, are assailed, abused, misrepresented, and calumniated by these same corropt and hireling organs of party and fac tion, the independent press is still found on the side of justice and the republic-ready and able to repel the unprincipled assailants of a faithful judiciary. These singular facts relative to the conduct of the newspaper press, indicate most truly that the safety of the institutions of this land, and the maintenance and supremacy of those glorious principles on which the foundations of the republic repose, depend, in a great measure, upon the mighty indejiendent prsss? uncontaminated by political corruption, and support ed by the good sense, intelligence and patriotism of the American people, without regard to faction or party. This great truth is daily becoming more apparent. And just as the independent press grows in influence, so decay and sink the vile presses of faction. Their day is drawing rapidly to a close,? bnd when it does come to an end, it will be a glo rious triumph for the cause of truth, liberty, and the republic. New Hotel. -Colonel Thome lias commenced operations for the erection of a magnificent hotel on f is property in the burned district. It will be con structed and managed entirely in the French style, and will be a most desirable residence fur foreign ers and families who may desire the superior con veniences, comforts, and cook'ng of an hotel con ducted in the best Parisian style. Colonel Thome came over to this country for the purpose of su|>er i mending the erection of this splendid edifice. Steamship Britannia, Oapt Hewitt,from Boston, nrrived at Halifax on the 3d instant, and left on the lame day for Liverpool, with fourteen additional passengers. Mormon Difficulties,?Gov. Ford has issued a third proclamMion relative to the Mormons. Every tiling in the neighborhood, at present, wear*a peace able aspect The American Institute.?There is quite a fal ling off in the Fair of the American Institute this year. It has, indeed, been sinking from year to year, and the number W visitors has been annually decreasing. What is the cause of this 1 Located in the great metropolis of the Union?possessing so many facili ties tor becoming indeed a national institution, com manding universal respect, and advancing in an eminent degree the science, arts and industry of the whole country?liberally endowed by the State?it does seem strange, that this "American Institute"is comparatively such a paltry and humbugging af fair. It is, however, very easy to explain the mys tery. Bad management?the continued control of a petty clique, characterized by all the vices of clique urn, selfishness, illiberality, stupidity and in" justice, have been the causes of the lamentable decay and degradation of the Institute. A few in dividual manage the receipts?know where the money goes to?till the most important offices?pack the committees?supervise and over-rule, as they please, the decisions of the judges?and effectually cripple the institution of all its means of usefulness? its reputation and value as a great public body, os tensibly devoted to the most important public ob lecta. Efforts have been repeatedly made, and persever ed in with a zeal that deserved success, for the pur pose of reforming the Institute, and throwing of! the baleful influence of the clique that rules it. Bu1 they have ail, as yet, tailed. The clique is still all powerful. Flaming annual reports of the astonish ing prosperity of the Institute are still issued. Bom bastic addresses, by the members of the clique, ;>uffing themselves ad nauseam, are still spoken at :very "Fair." The "Premium Committee" still control the decisions of the Judges. Paltry musical entertainments are given, in the hope of catching a Few additional "quarters." Fireworks are nightly discharged "at an enormous expense," to please the children. The whole atrair is turned into a bur lesque on a scientific and patriotic institution, and candies, soap, and cooking-stoves, continue to mo nopolize the exhibitions, and the pewter medals, generously distributed at the expense of the fortu nate artists to whom the prizes are adjudicated. We thus speak of the failure of this Institute, more in sorrow than in anger. Ihstead of occupyiug such a degraded and disreputable position, it ought to be able to command the respect and admi ration of the whole country. Well managed?con ducted with liberality, justice, and a high and honor" able sense of duty, on the part of all connected with it?the " American Institute" might now possess an ample revenue, and ample means of every sort, to be a munificent patron of science and the arts? stimulating and aiding invention, genius, and skill in all departments of industry and art. If the Insti tute had been thus managed, Niblo's Garden would not be able to contain a tenth of the really merito rious and interesting articles sent annually for ex hibition. It is not too late to make another effort to reform this Institute, ft is lamentable to see it following so rapidly into decay and ruin. Let the Legislature of the State be called into institute an investigation into its affairs, and let all honorable and worthy men con. nected with it, whose counsel, aid, and disinterest* ed exertions in its behalf, have been contumeliously rejected by a selfish clique, unite in a last endeavor to convert it from being a nice little concern in the hands of a few individuals, to what it was intended to be and what it can yet be made?a great national institution for the promotion of science, arts and in dustry. Newspapers and Pr nters in Washington.? We jierceive that there will be great competition amongst the newspapers in Washington during the ensuing session of Congress, in the matter of pub lishing the reports of Congress, or what they call the debates in Congress. Ritchie and Ileiss have pub lished their proBpectns, and announce in a style quite characteristic of green hands at the business, their intention of issuing what th y call the " Con grcxsional Union." Gales and Seaton, of the Intelli gencer, likewise announce their design of publishing the reports, and Blair and Rives have also issued a circular in which they give notice of entering on the same field. This competition and enterprize in reporting the debates in Congress, originated, we believe, at the extra session, after the accession of Mr. Tyler, and was produced by the new system first introduced by this establishment, the Herald of New York. One thing particularly strikes us in these enterprizes. When Blair and Rives gave up the Globe to Ritchie and Heiss, at the order o' the President, it was generally understood that they had abandoned the field altogether, and entirely relinquished the busi ness of reporting the debates in Congress and every thing connected with public affairs. But it seems they have not. They appear to be still in the field, and with greater force than ever, determined to give the best reports of the debates in Congress, uninfluenced by " party basis" as they call it. This we do not believe they can do, nor can any |?aper in Washington, for they are all so completety under the influence of cliques and factions, that it is im possible for them to be independent. That high course can be taken only by a New York journal such as the Herald. And we mean to adopt it and beat them all, through&ut the whole season of Con grew. Blair and Rives in undertaking the continuance of their Congressional reports, seem to be prejwtring a nest (or themselves, in order to be able to operate effectually against the administration, provided it do not accede to their'wishes. The movement also in dicates, that there may be seme contest about the printership of Congress, and some confusion in the ranks of the democratic party as to who ought to be printer. The President has appointed Mr. Ritchie his organ, but it does not follow that he is to get the printing of Congress, unless Congress choos .? to be under the dictation of the President. On the whole, there will be, we cannot doubt, a grand scramble for the spoils in Washington amongst the printers, and some curious developments may be anticipated. Thkatricaus.?The theatres have been in the full tide of prosperity during the past week. At the Park the houses night after night have been crowded to suffocation, and the second engagement of the Keans has been even more brilliantly successful than the former. To-night " Romeo and Juliet" is to be repeated, with the improved readings in the princi pal parts,and lull and accurate versions of the whole play, which secured lor its former representation such unbounded and enthusiastic approbation. Mr. Kean intends to play in all his best rolrt and give in each the original readings which attracted so much attention on the part of the critical admirers of the Shaks|>earean drama on the other side of theAtlantic 80 highly successful was Mr. Kean in his represen tations of the principal Shakepearean characters in London, that one of the plays had a splendid and uninterrupted run ol twenty-three nights.

Theatrical*. Pabx Theatre.?We have, during the past week, had another noble illuatration of the taate and liberality of a New York public. The receipt! of the Park Theatre mutt have averaged more than eleven hundred dollars per night. What a bi illiant array of sparkling black ey ea and alabaater complexion! have been congregated within the walls of "Old Drury," to witneit the triumph of mind, exemplified in the originality, diguity, force and paaiion with which Mr. and Mrt Chariot Kean have in vetted the highest creation! of Shakspeare's genuia! Mr. Kean'a personations of Hamlet and Jlomeo, two Shake spearian character! the moat like one another, at least in adventitious circumstances, have raited hi* reputation at an actor immensely. Men applaud him, old ladies fall in Jove with him, and young ladies, who are not allowed to fall in love, beatify hit wife with a graceful enthusiasm aod tender melancholy which shows itself in tears.? " There are no faces truer than those that are so washed.'' Mr. Kean's Hamlet is the triumph of mind, exemplified iu the originality, dignity, force and passion with which he invests the part. The grief that " passeth ahow " absorb* him from bis entrance to hi* death. It ia neither loud nor vehement, but it i* intense, occupying his every faculty, faiteuiugupon his very aoul. The next great element, the dread discovery ot his father's murder, combined as it is with the harrowing circumstance! of the perpetrator beiug his father's brother and his mother's husband, brings on that disturbance of the facultiea which shows itself in the disorganization that has excited so much discussion as to the reality and extent of Hamlet's madness. Here shone out one of the traits which constitute Mr. Kean's claim to originality. There was an indescribable manifestation of disordered facul ties made palpable to the spectator throughout. How it was to operate was uncertain; but it was there. The perpetually recurring expectation and suspense created an intense and momenta!y interest. The third element was, the suppressed but still struggling love for Ophelia, which was shown in occasional and most touching lapses into expressive tenderness. These were peculia rities which we cannot remember to have observed in any of the representations we hxve before seen. There was also a finely discriminated filial reverence towards " his lather's spirit," which elevated the entire portrai ture. The trite anecdote of the simplicity of the coun tryman. who being asked, after seeing Oarrick, " Who played Hamlet," replied, " It wasn't played at all, the gentleman was there himself." has been quoted as the greatest compliment ever paid to an actor Mr. Kean ronews in us the recollection, by his absolute identity and concentration in the part he plays. Ophulia, as imagined aud represented by Mrs. Kean, is a new character. Sound thought, combined with sense, has been made to take its lower and its proper station ; it is the accossory, not the principal. Like all Shaks peare's delineations, this is founded on the realities of the human heart, and here they are of the deepest and most delicate interest. They vibrate in the nerves of every parent who fears the betrayal of his child's affec tions?of every female who has ielt, or who has resisted the effects of such seductive assaults? of all who have sighed ovei the intellectual wrecks which are but too ot ten exhibited in mournful receptacles ol madness ? Ophelia is the personification of rank, beauty, inno cence, accomplishment, and above all the most acute sensibility, sinking under conflicting feelings and du ties. In the earlier scenes she is obedient to her father, affectionate to her brother, confiding te Hamlet, grace ful to all?in the latter there is no violence; the intellect hus waned, and she falls like a rose whoso leaves arc scattered by tho wind : her foot loses its firmness, her arm , its elasticity, her eye its expression, and as she sits rock ing on tho floor in helpless insanity, we feel that the cruel truth of the portrait is worthy of Shakspeare's ge nius. In the delivery of the text, the sweet tones of Mrs. Kean strike upon the ear like? "Silver voices of the bells ol air, Summoning choiisters to morning prayer"? And her bye play is beautiful?she says "fine things without uttering a word." We did intend to notice the performance of Jlomeo and Juliet, admirably played on Thursday last, and put upon the stage in a most costly stylejbut we must defer the pleasing task until another day. The revival of this I beautiful play gave great satisfaction to a crowded house, and we hail it as a promise of that frequent recur rence to the best works oftlio classic drama, to tho revi val of which, the theatre has of lute shown so liberal a tendency. During the present season, the Park Theatre hus been conducted in all its departments with such spirit and elegance, that as a place ol fashionable rosott, it has never been equalled since its foundation. Bomkrv Theatre.?The star of this Theatre ia in the ascendant, and in order to give it a higher lift, the Mana gers produce this evening the favorite Drama of Putnam, which had such on immense run last winter. Mossrs. Coney He Blanchard will also appear in the Drama of the Forest of Bondy, with their dogs. The whole to conclude with Scan Mag. Xirlo's Qardex.?Messrs. Chippendale and John Sef ton take their benefit this evening, and we have the play of London Assurance, with a caste, including .1. Placide, Mr. Chippendale, Mr. Crisp, John Sefton, Mrs. Crisp and Mrs. Mowatt. As if this was not treat enough for one night, the after piece will be the Galden Farmer, with John Sefton's immortal "Vel, vot of it." Pai mo'i.?The Kthiopian Serenadcr* to-right givo a splendid Concert, partly in citizen's clothes and white ! faces, and partly in Kthiopian character. Their perfor mances are so unique, wc need-not say a word on the subject, more than to say, that as Palmo's is let for Wed nesday evening, to-night and to-morrow are tbeenly two chanres left ol hearing these unrivalled performers.

The Weather.? Yesterday wan a blue day. The hearts or many of the most pious were sorely stricken by being kept from church on account of the rain. It was a very unequal day. In the morning it was hot and mis ty; about 9 o'clock a hard rain came up, and by noon a heavy gale of wind tore awnings, blew off hats, and blew over some of the long and airy tons of men.? Chatham street presented a curious appearance about 1 o'clock. Nearly every awning that was out was more or less torn, and was slapping about with the wind in all directions. We suppose this must be the deferred equi noctial storm, which, according to precedent, ought to have come off three weeks ago. It rained very hard all the afternoon. Marriage at Hari-em.?On Wednesday last,the deni zens of the pleasant villago of llailem were on the tip toe of excitement to witness the consummation of the nuptials of one of Karth's fairest daughters, for several years past the reigning belle of the village. At 12 o' clock, the happy couple made their appearance in St Andrews Church, escorted by a large number of friends and relatives. The I.ady has been lor some time an in structress in the Sabbath School of St. Andrew's Church; and as she entered the church, her class of young and lovely girls, beautllully decororated with flowers, pre ceded her to the altar, strewing her path with the choic est and most flagrant flowe rs of the season. The mar riage ceremony was pronounced in a clear and audible tone by the Village I'astor. The company then separa ted?many with hearts sorrowful at the thought, that she was lost to them forever; but all wishing I he beautiful bride long life and happiness with her devoted husband. Coroker's OrrrcE, Oct. 12 ?Fntul Occident.?The Coroner was called this morning to hold an inquost at No. S Walnut street, on the body of a woman named Su san Dickson, a native of Ireland, aged thirty-one years, who came to her death in consequence of injuries by a large log or sparol wood rolling u|>on her in a ship yard, into which she had gone for the purpose of gathering chips, in doing which, she removed a sort of wedge that held the spars togother.

A Fioht.?Although there are very few more orderly and better conducted establishments in Brooklyn, than the " Military Garden." disturbances will sometimes occur oven there. On Friday night last, a difficulty took place between Mr. William Lane, of the United States Navy, and Mr. Thomas Costigan, originating in the non tulfiltneut of a contract, made by the former to takei Mr. Costigan as master carpenter, to the F ort at Key West, uow under contract, to bo constructed under the Erec tion of Captain Dslton. Mr. C. conceiving himself in jured in the premises, indiscreetly, (as we think,) struck Mr Lane a violent blow in the face, whereupon a general row took place, which was, however, promptly sup pressed by Mr. Van Felt. Mr. Coetlgan alleges that he had " much good causes" for acting as he did and the probability is, that a law suit will be the result ol this tmeute.

It appears that the accused had displayed considerable in genuity, in order to carry his plans into effect, having made up the linen into full sued petticoats for ladies, and the broadcloth into cloaks, tho size of which,an Alderman would find but little cause of complaint.

Present Judges Nelson and Betts. This Court for the last threo days have been occupi d with hearing an argument not yet concluded in some important excitement suits which wore tried at the last Circuit ; verdict having been taken subject to the opi nion of the Court upon questions of law. The plaintiff in all the suits is Mr*. Williamson, a daughter of the lot Thomas B. Clarke, who claims to recover one third of the large and valuable premises at Greenwich in the neighborhood of the 9th avenue and 31th and 35th street which were sold by her father in his life time as trustee under certain acts of the Legislature. Suits for the n is understood, are ponding, brought i-> t' two other childron of Clarke and will probably c. , ? ' upon tho decision in these cases. Mrs. Mary Clnrke, in the year 1801, devised a part of her farm at Greenwich and a lot in Broad wayjto trustees, and to receive and pay the tents to Thus. B.Clarke during his life, and at his death to convey to the surviving chil dren. The Legislature accepted tho resignation of the trustees and appointed Clarke in their stead, authorizing him to sell or mortgage one half of the premises with the assent of the Chancellor, for the support of himself and his children, and the titles of the delendants have acciu ed undor conveyances in pursuance of this appointment. The plaintiff maintains among other points that the acts were unconstitutional and void; that if valid they confer ?d only a salutary power,which was violated in the con vey aiiccs, the consideration not having been entirely cash, and that in one case the sale was void, because the premises bad been previously mortgaged and the sale thereby exhausted. The defendants maintain that the acts were valid, they having been so adjudged by the Suprome Court and the Court of Errors in 1837, in Cochran vs. Van Surlay, where the same questions wero discussed and decided ; and that sound policy requires that the titlos which have been acquired on the faitn of that decision, should not be disturbed ; that under the will the children during the life of Clarke had only a contingent remainder, or possi bility depended upon their surviving their fattier, and must, thereforo, resort to a Court of Equity for redress if their rights had suffered ; that Clarke, under the acts, held the entire fee as trustee, and a court of law cannot enquire into the due execution ef a trust power, espe cially as he w-as vested with discretion as to the manner aDd terms of sale. The case on the part of the plaintiffs was ably and in geniously presented to the court by Mr. D. D. Field, who was followed by Mr. John Jay and Mr. Daniel Lord for the defendant. Mr. John Authon also associated with the defence, commenced an argument on Saturday, which will be continued to-day. Mr. Anthon stated in his opening that the premises ill question wero estimated at a quarter of a million of dollars, and that the tract reserv ed lor tho children by the act of the legislature,and which they had eRjoyed was of equal value. The importance of the principles involved as well as the amount at stake, and the fact that the highest judicial tribunals of State has already passed upon the priacipal questions, com bine to invest these cases with an unusual degiee of in terest.

Some of the railroad stocks should range higher than the current notations. The earnings of the Long Island Road, are sufficient to permit the declaration of a fair dividend. The Norwich and Worcester Company makes a very favorable exhibit or receipts to the 1st Inst. This year to the 1st instant, the receipt* amounted to $187 438 09, sgainst $162,648 61 to the same pe riod' last. At this rate the aggregate receipts for 1845 will exceed those of 1844 about six thou sand dollars, and amount to, at least, two hun dred and eighteen thousand dollars. The gross receipt, in 1843, were $151,403, and in 1844, $213,837. Out of the receipts for 1844, the company paid a dividend of three per cent, amounting to $49,500; running expenses, $67 . 090; interest on debt, $49,664; sinking fund, $25,000, and had a surplus of $21,783 for contingencies. This year, after paying the same amounts for expenses, interest, 9tc., there will be a surplus of more than twenty seven thousand dollars, part of which, and only a part, will be usod up in extra running expenses, being a surplus to be carried to the credit side of accounts for another year. There will be no dividend to stockholders on the 1st of January, 1846. From the present receipts, the company cannot declare but three per cent per annum, and the dividend for 1645 was paid last July. We annex a statement showing the position of the company in 1844, and the probable position at the close of this year. Noawioii a?n> WoacKSTia Railboas. 1M4. 1845.

Partly estimated. Part of the surplus in 1844 was used up in paying a balance due on extra cost of extension of road, and a pert of the surplus this year will be used in extra running expenses, connected with the day trains to and from Boston. It appears by this that only one dividend of three per cent can be paid out of the yearly receipts, and that there can be no dividend in January as anticipated. The Norwich and Worcester Railroad stock is therefore at present only a three per cent, instead of six at par value; and but a lour percent stock at current prices. This road must eventually ,ut the rate it has been a much better stock than it is at present. The sinking fund is accumulating very rapidly, the appurtenances of the road are increasing, and notwithstanding the great competition, the receipts are annually increasing. These things show that be | fore the lapse of many years, this road must become a i permanent six per cent stock, at least. It must always be a favorite route to Boston, on account of the expedl I tion with which the trains ptss over it, and connected | with the Long island road, will command most ol the summer travel between the two cities; its local bus! 1 ness is also improving, and altogether, the prospect of S ultimate profit is good. The current price of this st? ok is as much as it is worth as an investment. The receipts and expenditures of the Long Island Railroad Company, are not made so public as those of some other roads in the country,and very little is known about their financial condition. The monthly reoeipts are regularly published, but the sources from which .hey are derived are not given. The expenditures on this road are probably less than on any other of its length in tho country; and the company can, therefore, cany passengers at lower prices than any other. The income of the company for September, 1845, was $87, 148 52, being $8,970 88 more than for the con esponJing month in 1814. This includes, without aoubt, the re ceipts from their boats, as well as from the road. The increase of business on the South Carolina Rail I road for the hrstnine months of this year, ending Oct. 1st, has been $123,333. The receipts annexed, for the first nine months of the past five years, are exoiusive of the 1 mail contract and the profits of the bank.

At tho close of the year 1812, the tariff of charges for freight were reduced fifty per cent, and for passengers forty percent; and the increasod receipts in 1814, am1 so far In 1845, give a striking illustration of the effect which a reduction ot charges on freight and passage has upon the profits of this as well as any other railroad company In the country. This road is 202 miles long, cost $5,671, 452, and paid a dividend in 1844, of five per cent. The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Cerapauy have de clared a dividend of three per cent, for the past twelve months, payable on the 1st of Novem ber, which leaves a surplus to be auded to tbe contingent fund. A dividend was also decltred on the Washington Bank of three per cent, for the last six months, payable on the 1st proximo The reduotion of fare on the Washington branch havinc been attended with such favorable results,as regards revenue, a reduc tion on the Baltimore and Cumberland road is it con templation. The capital of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Com pany, upon which the dividend is made, is $7,000,006, consisting of 70,000 shares, of $100 each. The city of Baltimore owns 35,000 shares, the State of Maryland 5,000, and individuals 30,000 shares. The treasury of Baltimore city will receive of this dividend $106,000, end the treasury of the State $15,000. The capital of the Washington branch of tho same work is $1,650,006, of which the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Corapaey is owner of 10,326 shares of $100 each. The State of Ma ryland ownj 5,600 shsires. individuals hold 674 shares From this werk the State will reoeive $16,500, exolu sive of the bonus for each passenger. The whole reve nue en the two works, which the State ef Maryland will derive lor the year, from dividends, will be $46,060.

It was estimated last fall that 700,000 tons would be transported en the road from Janmry 1st to December 31st, 1848. The transportation for September, in that calculation, was put down at 87 a 90,000 tons, whereas the actual amount carried was 100,923 tons. The actual business has ex ceeded the estimates for eaoh month, so far, in about the same proportions. The capacity of the cars new en the road, is equal to the transportion of 1,000,000 tons per annum; additional cars will be added, so sa to make the capacity of the road in 1840 equal to 1,400,000 tons. At present there are on the road 1,000 wooden oars of three tons each, and 1,600 iron cars of fire tons each. 1,000 more iron cars of fire tons each, will increase the fuciii' ties of the road forty per cent, or equal te a business or 1,400,000 tons. The company will transport that amount oTcoal, if they get these additional cars, as theru has been this season, mere offered at the mines than the cars now in use could carry.
