NEW YORK HERALD. Sew York, Tuesday, October JIB, IMS ()lrni;i Ship Great Western. Tins Bte&mer has not yet made her appearance. She is now in her seventeenth day, and the specula tors itl fruit and flour are in a sute of intense ex citement. Mali* for Europe. The Great Britain will sail at two o'clock this af ternoon, and her letter bags will close at half-past one. The Evening Edition of the Herald, to contain the latest jxditical intelligence of importance, the mnrkets, the fashionable and theatrical movements, etc , etc , will be issued at one o'clock. This edition in wrappers, can be had at the desk, at two cents a copy. The Speculative Krn. We have already predicted bom the financial and speculative movements of the present jwriod, that strong attempts are making by the money ed and stock-jobbing classes, to bring about or commence a new speculative era. This view has already more marked confirmation than we had reason to expect, even when we indulged in our former s|?eculations. During the last week a variety of stocks in Wall street have advanced, some five-some six?some seven-some ten per cent The excitement in the street has been very consider able. This speculative movement will no doubt rise and fall; but gradually end with a rise, until soine great cause, growing out of our foreign relations either gives un additional impulse to those move ments, or throws them in the suds altogether. We have already pointed out the various symptoms developing themselves in the commercial world at ?his tune, which indicate the approach of another great era of speculation First, one of the promt* uent symptoms is the increase of discounts, and the inflation of credits by the banks of New York, Philadelphia and Boston. So great has been the in flation of credits in New York, that many of th< banks are dividing from ten to fourteen per cent per annum. Secondly, another cause of the disposition of the time is, the desire already showing itself to increase (he baok capital in the State of New York under the general banking law, and also in Ohio. Banks may be increased to a very great extent, without any application for char ters, or any outward indication, until the new banks themselves are in operation. Many new banks, du ring the last year, have been added to those already m existence in these two States. In the State of Pennsylvania the bank movement is already active ly progressing. Announcements have been made for the application of seven millions of new bank capital in rhat State alone. In fact, on every hand and in every quarter, there nre indication of prodigious effort made by various classes of simulators to increase the momentum of speculation. Those which we have mentioned are the most prominent, pointed and marked, but many others, not less significant might be enumerated. Selling Newspapers in Boston on Sunday.?A :?rent eflort has been made tu Boston by the religious fanr.tic*. to prevent |<eople from reading newspapers tn that city on Sunday. The Grand Jury have been stimulated to indict the news agents there, and con tinual efforts appear to be made to convict them or annoy them as much as possible. We understand that this movement originated in the most selfish considerations thatcan be imagined Several of the old book venders, dreading the ac tivity and energy of the new class of newsmen who have sprung into existence through the instrumenta lity of the independent press, are afraid that their lazy habits and impudent hypocrisy will l>e mastered in process of time by the " Young America" of the hook and newspaper trade. They accordingly made a great racket and noise about piety and religion?although the piety of many of them could be puri hased at the rate of sixpence a hogshead?got up these indictments, and are now making themselves ridiculous by prosecuting them. We conceive ih it spiling newspapers on Sunday or reading them, is as pious, as intellectual, and as re ligious a piece of business as preaching in the pul pit. In fact we are not sure but many of the news l>apers circulated on the Sabba'h day have a much more christian enlightened character, and exercise a much more salutary tendency than many of those narrow-minded, sectarian sermons fulminated from the pulpit on that day. The conduct of the instigators of this movement in Boston is behind the age?utterly contemptible in motive and spirit?and ought to be scouted by all men of intelligence and liberality. Thk Aqitationon the PfBLic School Question. It steins that this subject is not disposed of or fin ished by any means, but that on the contrary the fa natical presses who have continued the agitation and difficulty are trill actively in the field. Doctor Reese is determined not to give up. The following card was published by him in some of the papers of yesterday: A Card.?The undersigned, having visited the office of the Secrettry of State at Albany, and made the appeal to that otlicer, which is provided for in the law, against the late action of the Supervisor* in his ease, reapectfully communicates to those interested in the result, that a de cision by the Head of the Department may shortly be expected, which will be final, and conclusive. Meanwhile, as " all proceedings upon, or in continua tion of the act complained of, or consequent in any way upon such set, must be suspended until the case is decid ed,'' the undersigned, without relinquishing any of his ust or legal rights in the premises, will nevertheless abstain from any of those "acts and decisions," which the prerogative of his office, until the adjudication of the appeal by the State Superintendent. He is instructed however by the Department, to com plete his tour of visitation to all the Schools of the < ounty.tor the purposo of collecting statistics, itc. for his Vnnual Heport, which lie is now required to make lor the present year, and transmit to the State Superin tendent on cr before the 1st of January, 1848. D. MEREDITH REESE. Tins i? merely another brand thrown into the tire of party politics and fanaticism in order to keep up the controversy. What the decision of the Secreta ry of State at Albany may be,we do not know. But ihe original question liasnow lost ail its iieculiar cha actenstics.and has degenerated into a mere struggle of fanatical partizans on either side, boding no good o the schools or to the system, or to the young ge neration, or to society itself, which is annoyed and distracted by these disputes. Mission to Mxxioo?There is some talk that our government intends to send a minister to Mex co, for the purpose of demanding payment of the delinquent instalments of the indemnity. This is the best thing that could be done by Mr. Polk. It would bring up the whole question of the boundary of Texas, and the indemnity, and put the American government in a position to make the first move ment, which is of the most essential advantage in all these diplomatic matters. If Mexico, on the ap pointment of such a mission, should not answer categorically the questions put to her in regard to that indemnity, and make some advances to the se.t ' i mentof the question under the stipulations of the 'reaty, then oar government could at once make a r ovement upon her and compel her to come to an mmediate understanding.

I1ERN1S7' I.KCT1TIS0.N "Chiva" AT TflK So entry Library, Last Evekixo ?A highly respecta ble audience assembled ai the Society Library, lust evening, to hear the fi'tt of the series o( lectures on " China," annouuesd by the leurned ami talented Dr. Hernisz. The Doctor is a very pleasing speaker ?plain and unaffected, and in bis style and manner, presents a model which many ot our would-be lec turers would do well to imitate. It is irr possible to convey in a report, any adequate idea of these cu rious lectures, abounding as they do in so many illustrations, directed to the eye as well as the ear. We are constrained, therefore, to limit ourselves to a brief notice, and advise all who are wise enough to appreciate their value, to go and hear the Doctor. Tiie lecture last evening was confined chiefly to the literature of the Chinese, their most popular authors, and a variety of interesting collateral mat ter. Dr. Hernisz read copious and most interesting extracts from the Chinese of the present day, illus trative, in a singularly curious manner, of the social manners, customs, language and opinions of the jieople of China. He regretted that it was not in Ills power to exhibit specimens of the books, as his collection?a very rare and valuuble one?had not yet reached this city. We have before us one of these Chinese works?a popular novel? to winch we have already directed the at tention of our readers. Amongst the other curi osities which it contains, are a series of engravings representing the chief characters. One of these we have had copied. Here it is?it represents the hero of the novel, and certainly he presents a very differ ent a-pect from tint of the heroes in those fashiona ble novels over which our sentimental misses are accustomed to expend their sighs and tears and sympathies : Dr. Hemitjz read some curious extracts from the writings of Confucius, of whose character und works he gave many interesting details. The lec ture was listened to with marked attention by the auditory, which comprised many of the most dis tinguished of our literati and me rchants, with a number of ladies. Nothing at all equal to this series of discourses, in point of novel interest and real va lue, has been delivered in this city for a long time past. We have no doubt that from the interest so manifestly excited last night, a very large assem blage will be attracted 011 occasion ef the delivery of the next lecture. The study of Chinese history, literature, and manners is fast becoming a fashiona ble subject of attention, and no one pretending to keep pace with the enlightenment of the age, can remain ignorunt of these matters. Such an oppor tunity of presenting this curious and attractive study with success, as is now presented, will not likely Boon again present itself. Theatrical Amusements?What are they 1? The recent suit against the proprietors of Castle Garden, to recover the penalty of #500, in which the jury did not agree and were discharged, has induced trie society who instituted the proceedings, to com mence similar suits against reveral of the minor theatres, with a view to ascertain definitely, what class of performance come legitimately within the meaning of the act of the legislature, which de fines " tragedy, comedy and farce," as "theatrical" performances, and does not specify opera, ballet, pantomime, dancing, and all the lighter branches which have of late years been introduced on the stage. We have it, that it is in contemplation to proc eed also against certain pious and distinguished gentlemen, who have recently figured at the Taber nacle,and against the proprietors ofthat establishment on the grounds stated above. Un the late trial, most of the leading theatrical and professional persons connected with the theatres had been supainaed ; but only one such witne-s, however, was examined, and the case was sent to the jury. These suits, I ior Co which will lie tried in the Superior Court next term, will bring on the stand some of the leading and dis tinguished artists of the day, and the various pro prietors of the theatres, a a well us many eminent critics. Poller. Intelligence. Oct. 27.? Bigamy.?A person named Robeit Miller, was arrested last evening on a charge of bigamy, in ba\ 1 ing contracted a second marriage, his first wile, Mrs. Mary Miller, being still alive.

Great Mass Meeting of the Democracy ot the Fifth Ward ?The Assembly Ticket Tri umphantly Sustained?Nomination of Jns. II- Glentworth?Intense Excitement. An immense gathering of the democracy oi the Fifth Ward took place last evening at "Mutual Hall"?a splendid establishment recently opened under the auspices of the young democracy by Mr. A. Hull, late chief officer ot the famous "Riley's Hotel." Longbefore the hour appointed formeet ing?eight o'clock?ttiejarge room was.filled to over flowing, and amongst the crowd we noticed many of our moat distinguished and leading democrats. Shortly after S o'clock the.meeting was called to ol der by Colonel Jackson, who nominated as Presi dent ot the meeting the venerable Eubnezkr Brown, who accordingly took the chair, amid the loud accla mations of the assemblage. Messrs. John Williamson and J. P. M. Grant were then unanimously appointed Secretaries. The Chairman then rose and said, that, as the object of the meeting?to respond to the Tammany Assembly Nominations?was known to ail present, it was unneces sary for him to occuny their time by any preliminary ob servations. lie was ready to hear any gentleman who wished to address the meeting. Mr John Smith then rose and was received with tre mendous applause. Mr. Smith bas been long known us one of the most zealous and disinterested democrats in the ward, and is universally esteemed and respected. He said?Mr. President and tientlemcu : A great work has been accomplished. (Cheers) The Assembly ticket has been finally completed at Tammany Hall?Tammany Hall, the Sanctuary of true democratic principles in this great metropolis. (Great applause ) That ticket is good. (Shouts of applause.) It is very good, gentle men It comprises a list of names which would do honor to any patty. (Great applause ) Indeed, gentlemen, 1 do not know that any other party could possibly produce such a list of worthy and honorable men. (Cheers)? Could the whigs f Could tho natives 1 I pause lor a re ply. (Great applause ) Gentlemen, as Julius Cssarsays inthe play of Macbeth, they are "all honorable men."? (Great applause.) Amongst these names .there is one of extraordinary lustre?that of u gentleman whose exalt ed services in public and in private?in season and out of season?whose eminent talents?whose versatile genius ?whose devotedness to the party, all conspire to render him a solid "wall" and bulwark of defence, to the immor tal cause of democracy. Need I say that I allude to Jonathan D. Stevenson.' (Terrific applause) Gentle men, perhaps my feelings of personal regard may bias my judgment, but if so, you can correct me ; but 1 do believe that Jonathan D Stevenson is ouc of the most illustrious examples extant, of that pure de mocracy which has been recently developed to the world, in the " Butler and Hoyt Correspondence."? (Vehement applause,) With such a name at the bead of the ticket, success is certain. But 1 have oue slight amendment to offer to the ticket. I believe, I calculate, I reckon, that you all know Colonel Stevenson - (shouts of?" yes"?" yes"?" we know hiin"?) Well, 1 sup pose that you will recollect, that he some time since per formed an important part in certain remarkable transac tions with which another illustrious name is associated (Great applause?cries of "go it old boy i"?" we knows what's coming"?and one voice at the end of the room, "three cheers for the Major!?") Gentlemen, moderate your ardor Keep cool But I won't hold you longer in suspenso. 1 refer to Jatnes U. Glentwortb. (Here the applause was absolutely astounding ) 1 move that that name l>e put on the ticket. With the name ol Colonel Stevenson?Jonathan D. Stevenson?at the head, and that of Major Glentwortb?James B. Glentworth at the bottom?then it will be democratic?purely demo cratic?democratic all through. (Great applause) I move that the name of J. E.Devlin be struck irom the ticket, and that of James B. Glentworth substituted in its stead (Applause and hisses.) Mr Beknakd O'Flaherty? Mr. Chairman?I wish 1 may be. (" Order, order," and some confusion.) Mr. Murphy?I say Mr. Devlin will never?(Confu sion.) Mr. Thomas D. Carpknter?Mr ('resident?(Renew ed cries of" order, order," and confusion ) Chairman?Gentlemen?Order, it von please?Mr. C arpenter has the floor. (Cheers and Liases ) Mr. Thomas D. Car*entkr (a distinguished financier in Wall street) then proceeded to say, older having been restored?Mr. ('resident, I second the motion of Mr Smith, from the very bottom of my heart, and the very uttermost ends, the Oregon and California of my demo cracy. (Tremoad-ots applause nnd a few hisses) I am ; sorry to see anything like disunion on this occasion, but I I think ttiat a little friendly explanation will produce a return of that brotherly i.flection?that fervent good | will?that tender charity? that astouiihing unanimity, which so happily characterize the great democratic J party (Loud and long continued cheering.) Gentle men, ! was myself about to propose the same motion,but I was happily anticipated. Although I regarded the ticket which has recently issued from Tammanaj Uallas one of the best ever submitted to the people and 1 know that it comprises names of the most brilliant lustre?regu lar Druminond lights?(great applause - cries of "go it old boy ?) names which are redolent of those glorious principles of Jetfeisouian democracy as first established n '98 or '99?which is it,'gentlemen?*98 or '99 ? [" Oh, d?n the odds?old boy !" ?' "9a'?"no, f)9"?"Silence"? "order"?and a leud snout of "to be sure its in" trom Mr. O'Klaherty.) Well, gentlemen,notwithstanding I still thought there was a screw loose somewhere in the ticket ? only a little screw?that, in fact, there was a little knoh wanting, and that if we had that appended, it would he perfectly complete?that is, as neurly complete and peifectas any of the works of human nature and demo cracy can bo. (Here the speaker was evidently much affected, and blew his nose with considerable emo tion ) This knob has been suggested by my worthy friend, Mr. John Smith, and his motion I second with my whole heart, and my whole soul, and my whole mind, and both my boots. (Here the speaker stamped with great rigor on the floor, an operation which was lollowed by all in the meeting except Mr. O'Klaherty, Mr. Mur phy, and one or two others.) Mr. President, continued Mr. ("arpenter. when I look around on this distinguished audience, crowded with pure democrats, I feel that all must be aware of the eminent career and invaluable ser vices of Colonel Stevenson?Jonathan D. Stevenson. He has been a perfect Hercules of the democracy.? (Cheers) He lias exerted himself night and day for the party. With no affected squeamishness he has done our work faithfully. (Great applause.) As a man?as a citi zen?as a public Officer?as nu open-hearted, frank, honest -aye, honest, gentleman?pure, upright, democrat, he he- no superior in this city. (Cheers.) He is a true Butler democrat?(cheers')?a Sandy Hill democrat, gentlemen j ?(terrific applause)?a Sabbath-loving democrat?(re newed applause)?t n .unsophisticated, modest, sincere ! democrat?(great applause.) But, geutlemeu, you recol iect that he once made an exploring expedition to Phila "] delphia?One of the greatest movements ever undertaken ( in the causo of the party. (Cheers) He associated with 1 him in that memorable enterpiise James B. Glentwerth, I another most worthy and pure democrat, a mail who has j indeed created the greatest concern in the mind of Ben jamin K. Butler. (Here the applause lasted for some minutes, and the worthy was so much affected that he was obliged to get from the bar a bottle of soda water and a chew of tobacco ) So interested Benjamin . K. Butler, I say, that that noble-hearted man was will ing to shane with him his last crust nnd supply him with the stated preaching of the gospel tor the remainder of his natural life. (Greet applause.) Gentlemen, do not lot mc be misunderstood, i do not mean to insinuate that the expedition to Philadelphia had reference to the stated preactzing of the gospel?no, gentlemen, but it was to investigate the proceedings ot the pipe-laying missionaries. (Great applause) And the expedition was triumphantly successful. It set " the party" on its legs. (Cheers.) Now, gentlemen, should we not he just ? .Should w? not be generous But 1 forget myself. Never was the democracy other than just and generous. iGreat applause.) Is it not plain then that the name of Gientworth must adorn our ticket (" Ves," " yea," and cheers.)

He considered that to have the privilege ol making way for such a man as James U. Glentworth was a greater honor than even election it self (Cheers ) However, as Mr. Devlin was a man of commanding talent, powerful eloquence, ami uniform consistency, he was in favor of retaining him on the ticket and striking out the tmollni name?that of a gen tleman who would,he wiis highly honored in lin ing used as a " ferry boat" to carry Major Olentwerlli into the Assembly. (Great cheering.) The suggestion of the ( elonel wss then adopted, and the name stiuck out ; but whose it was we did not learn the gentlemen on thu ticket can | n- ibly sottlo the point amongst themselves.

The Native Americana of the City and County of New York held a maae meeting laat evening at the corner of Grand street and Broadway. On entering the Hall we found it tolerably well filled with men, boya, Shirilera and muaiciana, among whom waa a drum, which certainly was the noisiest instrument ot that description we ever saw. The faithful Native who was attached to that instru ment kept np an awful pounding thereon for three quarters of an hour, tor the purpose of attracting as many as possible to hear the well known eloquence ot the Native leaders. When the drum did all that a drum could do, the meeting was called to order,and DavidE.Whkljce, Esq. was nominated chairman. Mr. Wheeler briefly returned thanks, and said he was deeply im bued with the spirit of the Native American party The report ot the Nominating Committee was then read, and the nominees each received three cheers, those towards the end of the list being raylhtr weak. The following gentlemen are the nominees : For Senator?F.lias H. Ely. For Register?Joseph Hufiy. Fur .'leseiubty- Henry Meigs, James Stokes, Abraham O. Thompson, jun.; William S. Jloss, Peter Doig, Har vey Hunt, Harris Wilson, Alfred S. Livingston, Thomas il. Oakley, Nehemiah Miller, Alonzo A. Alvord, William Marks, John A. King. Some one at this stage of the proceedings came in and stated that there were upwards of one thousand people in the street, and requested some of the speakers to go down and address them. Mr. Snow accordingly went down, in company with the drum to cool their ardor, being the first appearance of snow this Fall in our region. Mr. Thus. H. Oakley was loudly called for up stairs, and ho entertained the party with a short speech, in which ho called upon all the old watchmen, mechanics, merchant*, tax payers, whigs and locoa to join the native party. Mr. Campbell next addressed the meeting, ami said that no man was capable of becoming a freeman without a long course of truining, and that all history proves that the piinciples of the Native American party are the only true piinciplea upon which republics can be based. Mr. Woopaurr next spoke very highly of the nominees of the Native party and Dr. Reese, the late County Su perintendent of Schools. We then took a took at the meeting outside, and found about 200 persons, boys and all assemDled around a stage ing which had been erected in tirand -treet, and Mr. Snow ministering to them in his usnal eloquent style ? At the conclusion ol every sentence that fell from this gentleman, there was very loud cheering and other noisy applause by the big drum and some twenty persons near the stage, who apparently constituted all of the party among them. We then lookod up stairs and found n Mr Bard liamniering away with his neckcloth oil', and drops of perspiration as big as peas rolling down his ruddy clieeka, and the way the Star Spangled banner, the Pope ?Bishop Hughes?Carrol Hall?Irish?Irish shanties and the Irish tenants of the same, whom we are compelled to clothe and feed, and then compelled to receive their damnable votes to make them our rulers, were all mix ed, was a caution to Rhetoricians. The gentleman entreated oi the whigs and locos to join the native ranks, and concluded by saying that he wouid rather have his heart torn from his breast than see a victory by foreigners gained over the natives. There vas now great confusion, caused by the drum without end several persons within, calling for Reese, Eraser, Tolaem, Ac., during which a gentleman near the chair borrowed a cane and politely handed it to the chairman, and requested him to apply the sume to the desk, which the chairman vary obligingly did and so re stored ordot Mr' Snow , o settle the question said, that although he was very hearse from addressing the party outside, he would, nevertheless, say a few w ords He asked if there were any Irish present, and if there were, whether they did not love their own ccuntry and whether they would not spill their blood lor it. He knew they would, and he would tell them, and the French, and the Dutch too, that Americans would do the same for tho land of Wash ing uud in support of the principles of the Native Ameri can party. Mr. Fhasex being called for. sung two songs, the first of which was u very scurrulous affair, levelled at the Irish portion of our adopted citizens, and the other was to the tune of how slaves of foreign priests and kings would be used up by Yankee boys. Mr. U. W. Folsom next spoke, and the meeting ad journed. Taking it all in all, we never saw a more piti ful attempt to to make a demonstration, than was exhibit ed by this soidisant American party, last evening. Opening of the Medical Department of the New York University. The first introductory lecture of the winter seasien in this institution, was delivered last night by Dr. Mott, in the large Hall of the College, which was completely tilled with the assemblage of students and others who were anxious to hear the famous American surgeon lecture. He in company with Drs. Pattison, Payne, Draper, Bedford and Revere, who each have charge ot the respective departments of the College, entered the room about 7 o'clock, and they were all received with loud applause by the etudents. Da. Mott then rose and commenced by saying that he offered his sincere and friendly greeting io the class who were either about to commence or resume their studies, and that it afforded him great satisfction a* their increasing numbers, which afforded proof of the great success which this college meets among all the numerous institutions now in operation, and that this circumstance would act as an honorable incentive to them to go on in their endeavors. lie would not recapitulate the various cir cumstances that had operated up to the year 1810. He tnen spoke of the law that had been passed regarding the practice of medicine, and hoped that the time of regene ration was near at hand, when this city shall be recog nised as a seat of medical schools in proportion to her great importance in other respects. This College would strive to merit success, and as a guaranteo for the future, they would point to the past. He would allude to the great facilities of the College in the matter of their Ana tomical Museum, Dissecting Rooms, Chemical Labora tory, Reading Room, the Building, and the late valuable accession of the vast and unrivalled museum of the Ly ceum of Natural History, which was permanently locat ed in their building, affording opportunities to the student hitherto not within his reach. The learned Doc tor then intioducod the topic of Conservative Surgery, which he said was a terra oi modern origin, which by its name expressed its meaning, which was the using the resources ol att to preserve life without mutilation by amputation. Ho said that the various improvements in modern sutgery have filled the mind ol the world with wonder, and many a surgeon, dazzled by the tame of those who, by possessing the requisite skill, hnd performed groat things, had rashly and presump tously resorted to tho knife without tbe due knowledge; in fact it had become epidemic, and some salutary restraint was necessary, and this was Conservative Surgery; and those} who have proved what they could do were the ones who. without presumption, might lay down the law on this occasion. Kor himself, though no one perhaps had used the knife with greater relish, or in a more daring way?still, strange as it might appear, he always felt a rcptiguaiico to using it where it could possibly be avoided, lie then ?poke of the absurdities ol the present system of tlomoe pathy, though in the first instance it was intended as a species of consei vative medical practice. As a proof of the advance of Conservative Surgery, he instanced the successful method of treating Aneurisms on the extre mities by pre .sure, as practiced in Dublin; also the me thod of treating compound and lacerated fractures of joints without amputation, which was formerly consider ed impossible. lie was glad that specialities had not been introduced in this country They were not based on the true grounds of medical knowlodgo?the general system of the beautiful truths of the science must be all thoroughly understood. He also mentioned that the ju dicious treatmont of patients after operation was well un derstood in tins country, and that much ot the success of operations depended on this. He closed by warning them in their practice oi surgery never to infringe on the operations of others, or appropriate the credit due to others to themselves, when they had no right to it. The Doctor concluded amidst much applause, and tha audience separated highly pleased. The museums and different parts of the building were then visited and ad mired h} them.

Ttmperuei M?tlngj ? tnttod Dtnghlan ?T Rmh?b?P?lm Tent, H?. ?? The fair daughters of Rechab assembled last night at the McDougal street Church, with the praisewor thy object of expending some of the surplus sympa thy with which their natures are fortunately endow ed, on the glorious and blessed cause of temperance. It was really an inspiring and interesting spectacle. At about a quartern! eight, the " Sisterhood" entered the church, each one ornamented with a broad satin ribbon and rosette?their Hashing eyes and animated faces beaming with affection and sparkling with hap piness. The church was crowded to excess, and considerable interest manifested in their proceed ings. The meeting was opened with pruyer by the Rev. Mr. James. Brother WiriTK.of ths Empire Tent*then addressed the Jaughters. He said he was proud of the honor; he felt it * distinguished honor to be called on by an association of ladies to defend the rights and privileges of this time honored sisterhood. He oeuld not subscribe to the erro neous doctrine which would draw a line of distinction between the duties of the sax. It had been said that wo men should stay at home?thnt they should remain by their own firesides, and attend to domestic duties, (llere a chill began to cry.) This was a false assumption. He respected female virtue as much as any one, but was it Jiscredituble lor femalas to talte the drunkard from the gutter ??to discountenance vice and immorality I Is it wrong to " feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and let the oppressed go free V Away, then, with the fallacy that says that women step from their high calling when they visit the tick, the outcast and the needy, with the cardinal principles ef morality, virtue, benevolence and religion. But the greatest objection had come from fe males themselves. Much hail been said about what was -ailed modesty, it was mock modesty. Let the youug ladies strut Broadway with their finery and gew-gaws ; recline en ottomans, and in - ke gamblers ot their hus bands. an>l drunkards of their sons, if they choose, but daughters of Rechab stand firm. (The infant here con tinued its crying.) Countless nurabors ef boochanaliaus had been turned from their vicious course by the onwurd march of this sisterhood. The victorious banner of the Kechabites had overshadowed them, Ac Alkxsndiii Mino, Jr., now addressed the audience.? He said the Daughters of Rechab were associated for the purpose of carrying forward the greatest rcloim of the nineteenth century. They were a band of noble end self sacrificing women, whose object was the salvation of the drunkard from everlasting perdition. Each of the sister hood pays into the treasury a certain sum, and when a sister is sick she ia supported. When a drunkard is reclaimed, he is provided for by the order, Ac. These are the duties of the daughters of Rechab?cau any oue say they are out of place??that thov are not in the pro per sphere of action of an American lady? The time has como, when a man, whether adopted or native, cunnot hold his place in society, unless he subscribes to the temperance pledge?he cannot come into our churches? lie cannot become a member of our Common Council or Legislature?and no lady will much longer hold a conspi cuous place in society, who will at her parties hold out to her visitors, that which intoxicates, and which we hold is one of the greatest evils in the world. Look at it, an American lady acting the bar maid, going about asking her visitors to take a little wine, or something else. ~ What is she else than a bar maid I She is worse; and in the course of a few years, she has the satisfaction oi 1 seeing some of those whom she tempted, reeling in the 3treets, with haggard looks and tattered garments. The gentleman now remarkod, that he wus occasionally in j the habit of writing little pieces of poetry, and, with | permission of the audience, would recite oue of his ell'u i sions. Silence giving consent, Mr Ming repeated a temperance ode which he had composed. A collection was then taken up. Brother Haskett now read portions of the constitution of the order, from which we make the following extract: Article Second.?" Any ladies of good moral character, free from all bodily ailment, or infirmity that would tend to render them burthensomo to the tent, net under tne age of 16 uor Over 45, and who have signed the total ab stinence pledge from all intoxicating liquors, shall be eligible for membership." After the benedictiou, tho meeting adjourned. Tl?eutilculn. Park Theatre.?Thia place of ontertainment was pretty well attended last evening, by a highly discrimi nating audience. The pieces were "Much Ado About Nothing," and the "Boarding School." In the former Mr. Murdock personated Benedick, and Mrs. Bland, Bea trice. Mr. Murdock showed himself, as we have pre viously mentioned, to be a man possessing tho elements of a good actor, of which he gave ample evidence is his performance on this occasion. In tho challenge scene,in act 5, he drew forth considerable approbation, and at the ! conclusion of the scene, two distinct rounds of applause | greeted his endeavors, and that worthily, for we do no recollect this scene ever better presented to a New York j audience. Mrs. Bland's Beatrice was well sustained ; throughout, and as such, merited the meed of applause j awarded. This lady needs only to be better known to j he more extensively appreciated. Mr. Bass's Dogberry , drew down peals of laughter. No one present could 1 possibly "set him down as an asa," as respects his per- j sonution of the character. Mr. Dyott, as Claudio, meii- j ted equal approbation. Tho wholo went ofl well, and at tho conclusion was loudly cheered. At tho end of the piece, there were loud, long, and continued calls for the ; principal performers. Mr. Murdock, with Mrs. Bland, | made their appearance in front of the curtain,made their obeisance, and withdrew amid the renewed plaudits ot ll>Mr lMurdock must present himself boforc a New Yoik audience in this, or a similar character, again, when his | merits will doubtless be properly appreciated and stamp his luture fame. The farce of the "Boarding School" succeeded. The . piece was well sustained throughout, creating roars of j I laughter, and was greatly applauded . I The great Pianist, the Paganim of the Piano, as ha is called, makes his fourth appearance this evening, and j will give a grand fantasie on "L' Klisire D'Amore," and j i a grand marche, "Thriomphale D'lslv." These are two , magnificent pieces, and their magnificence is in propor tion to that of the perlormer, who is now tho "observed of all observers." Bowery Theatre.?Last evening the new drama of ; "Bold Thunderbolt," wa9 preseuted to a crowded house. The drama is a transcript of tho lives of the two high wavmen, who, under the names of Lightfoot and 1 hun, derbolt, played such strange pranks in the New England States many yeais ago, and the principal incidents ot whoso lives are recorded in the criminal calendar. It abounds in terrific incidents, hair breadth escapes, and fine tableaux. After this the new drama of "Napoleon.'' I in which Mr. Scott personated tho grent General. Messrs ' Coney and lilanchard, and their wonderful doga, also appeared; and the evening closed with the farce of the ? Dumb Belle." We have tho same bill to night. Mr. Milner's and Mr. Clarke's personations of tho two high waymen, were highly creditable to them as actors and Mr. Davenport's Yankee was irresistibly comic. Tkmim.kton's Concert Last Evenino.?This gifted 1 vocalist had another bumper house last evening, as Tal rno's was crowded to excess. The well established re putation of this fascinating singer?the elaborate cri tiqurt that have been written upon his high qualities as an artist-the lull flood of eulogy that has been showered upon hiin, by the press in general, would render anything further in commendation of hi* extraordinary powers almost superfluous. The enter tainments last evening commenced with "A night with the Poets of England, Ireland and Scotland." Mr. Te? pleton's specimens of the English school of music, Irish and Scotch melodies, wore received with marked ap plauae, affording a fine scope for his versatile powers. His song " The Lads of the Village," was sung with much sweetness. The popular and beautllul Irish melo dies, " Oh Blame not the Bard," and " The Minstrel , Boy," were sung with much feeling. " Auhl Robin Gray," was also much applauded. Mr. Templeton s des criptive sketches of Irish and Scotch music were deeply interesting, and gave much satisfaction to a crowded au ditory By particular desire, at the conclusion of the entertainment, he sung "I Love Her, How I Love Her," and was rapturously applauded. The audience were highly faihionable and select. His next entertainment ho announced for Wednesday evening. Madame Laiabe.?This cclebmted harpist, who has met with such great success in all the principal cities, both of Europo and America, has lately arrived from Havana, where, alter having been enthusiastically re ceived in several concerts, she was obliged to leave on account of her health This lady will now reside here where she intends giving inntiuction not only on the harp, bu* al?o in vocal muiic. lias already been formed ot her musical talents in seve ral priva'e salons ot 'Ins city, kince tier arrival, cannot tail of procuring for her a large number of pupils. At the solicitations ot tier numerous friends, Madame Lar.nie proposes giving a cencert on the 7th of November when, without doubt, the musical public of New York i will avail themselves ot this opportunity of hearing an artist who is without a rival, and one who's reputation is an harpist is equal to that of the celebrated violinists and pianists by w hom we havo lately been visited. Madame Pico's Decahtere ?Madame Pico, the ac complished vocalist, whose sweet, harmonious warb, lings have won the admiration of amateurs, artists, and J critics, whose private werth and lady-like demeanor have created for her a large and increasing circle ot iriends In social life, leaves this city, we understand, to morrow, on a professional visit to New Orleans an Havana Hhe will be accompanied by several ru* ? piishcd member* ot the I'alian rreiipe. the names ot An'og uni an I the VeltelMni* ' . n ,, spicuously.

Sho will produou some new and beautiful halltlt. Whether she will appear iu New York or go south we do not know, but wo should think it would be a most essautial advantage to any manager in this part of the country to procure bar services ut once. Thousands here are anaieus to welcome her back to our shores. A portion of Mann, Welsh undCo'a., Equestrian com pany take their departure to-day on board the brig "Broome," for Barbadoes ; they intend also to visit the other island* in the vicinity. Tilt Kcaiu.?These talented artists last week termi nated a very successful engagement in Baltimore, by a brilliant beneAt, the house crowded to excess by beau ty and fashion. They were received with the most un bounded applause. Last evening they made their ap pearance at the Chesnut street Theatre, Philadelphia, for a brief engagement, where doubtless their success will be equal to that in the former place. They return to this city at the termination of this engagement, and will perform at the Park Theatre, 011 the 10th, 11th and l'Jtfc of next month in " Hamlet." " The stranger," " The Gamester," and other pieces. There has been a grand blow up in lUchmoud, Vs., between M. de Bonneville, a loctuier on Mesmerism, and the eitizena; the latter accuse him of humbug, und he retorts the charge through the paper*. A pretty quarrel as it stands. They are playing " Putnam" at tho theatre in '.Pitts burg. Cltjr Intelligence. Second Act in the Farce ok "tmk Rival Caftains" ?Bushel Triumphant.?Ou Tuesdsy last w# gave a sketch of a militia training of the Both Regiment, it will be recollected that there was then a diiliculty between Capt. Bushel and Cant. Ty miii, as to who should com mand company ti. The field officers seeing that the com uauy were determined to support (.apt. Bushel ' and no body else," on Saturday brought down the roll aud ear rendered the whole ground to Capt. Bushel. He accor dingly yesterday took charge of lus company and drilled them without any interference. The Regiment met in Park Place, and after going through the oustomary awk ward exercises, and being laughed at by the crowd of gentlemen, boys, negroes aud loafers, marched olT to Washington Parade Ground. They meet again on Wed nesday lor inspection and review. We gathered some facts iu regard to the fining system, which show the enormous amount of money which is collected, and goes nobody knows where. In company G. alone, there are two hundred and sixty-five names of persons warned^ out ?there are but about thirty who appear?then throwiog out thirty-five more,we have two hundred names of per sons from whom flues are demanded, mest of whom will pay, for this company embraces some of the first men in the ward. Hero are flues- to the amount of one thous aud dollars in one company?then look through all the companies and all the regiments and the ameunt of fines collected must be enormous. "No more of this" say we. It is a great humbug, a burlesque on decency nnd com mon sense. The sooner it ceases the better. The Weather.?We are ravelling in the mild air, sunny days, and glorious star-lit nights of the lndisn summer. The autumn sky has put on again the bine man tie of May?the grass looks green and fresh, aud were we to awuke from a dream of years, we should be fully persuaded that we were living in the "merry month of May. "Summer seems loath to leave us and turn us over to the cold embrace of winter?she would hold ut in her arms like a cherishing mother, until the frost of winter nipped her fingers and sent her book to her home again. This glorious weather connot last much longer, qs our friend Jack Kiost will resume his seat and doroiaion ever us. White Plains.?Tha anniversary of the great battles of White 1'laiDg will be celebrated to-day on the battle field by the military of Westchester, in connection with some of the most distinguished Uniterm corps from the city of Now York ; aud without doubt, from the large assemblage of patriotic citizen* which will appear on the grouDd, it is expected that much eloquence will he brought forth. The cars of tho Harlem Railroad Compa ny will leave the City Hall at 0 and 10 o'clock A. M., lor the public accommodation, by arrangement with the military. Hidino Schools.?Of all exercises, there is probably none that so much conduces to bodily health, strangtli, and a graceful carriage, as the practice of horsemanship. There are in this city sevoral establishments where this art is taught. The principal and best ones iu tha city, are those of J. S. Uoulstone, No. 137 Mercer street?and Disbrow's, No. 408 Bowery. At these establishments, gentle horses, and every thing necessary to an acquire ment of the art will be found, together with every care and attention from the gentlemanly proprietors. Military.?The Twenty-Seventh Regiment, National Guards, commanded by Lieutenant Colonel Brimner, consisting of a troop of horse and eight line companies, met yesterday afternoon in the Park, and after being re viewed by Sheriff' Jones, marched to Tompkins Square, where they joined second regiment, commanded by Col. Bodge; the third regiment, commanded by Cel Avery, und the 9th regiment, commanded by Col. Curtis, nil at tached to the hrat Brigade of Now 1 ork State Artillery, commanded by Brigadier Gou. Hull. Tho lino was formed at 3 o'clock, and the brigade passed their annual inspection and review, performing the military evolu tions with an accuracy aud beauty, that delighted all witnesses. Earthquake.?'Wo loarn from undoul>tcd authority, that a shock of an euithquake was sensibly felt at Glou Gove about 7 o'clock ou Sunday evening. It was se vere enough to rattle tho doors and windows, and even the china in the cupboards. Earthquakes in this vi cinity are almost as rare as honesty in a pickpocket. Tub Great Britain.?The monster sails to-day nt two o'clock. As great interest will lie felt in teeing her, we would lecommend tho piazza of Castle Garden as the very best nlace in the world to get a good view of the stuamer. The piazza will contain many thousand per sons, and therefore will not be uncomfortably crowded. The Fire at Hand all's Island.? A semiofficial in vestigation into the origin of this Are has resulted in the conviction that it was tho work of an incendiary. Measures will of course be promptly taken for imme diately rebuilding the nurseries, end meanwhile the Children will remain at the Long Island Farms. Death* Last Week.?There were but 159 death* i i this city last week. This number is unusually small This line weather has but little sympatuy with the destroyer. Fair or the American Institute.?In our list ofthe persons to whom gold medRls were awarded by the ma nagers of the Ameriean Institute, we omitted to mention the following : Knox, the hatter, of llOFuDon stri-e', for a new and beautiful style of hats, that suits the face and all styles and complexions. Mr. Aleock, of No 4 Murray street, for specimens of artificial teeth. Coroner's Office, Oct 37.?-Svicide.?The Coroner was called this morning to hold an inquest at No. (ID Eighteenth street, on the body of an Englishman named George Crooks, aged 33 years, who committed suicide y psteiday alteruoon by taking laudanum, which lie pur chased at a store in the neighborhood. He died in about two hours after drinking the fatal draught. Verdict ac cordingly.

Found Dead in Dtn.?The Coroeer was also called to hold an inquest in the rearof No. 93 Division street, on the bedy of Andrew Boaher, a native of Germany, aged 40 years, who was this morning found dead in his bed. Verdict, death by apoplexy. Another Sudden Death.?The Coroner also held au inquest in 33d street, between 3d and 3d avenues, on the body of e femsde named Eliza Barney, a native of Ire land, aged 43 years, who died suddealy this morning. Verdict, death by disease of the heart. Outrage. Last evening, some rascal threw a sharp stone into one of the music stores on Broadway, nearly opposite Stewart's new store. The missile was oiuy prevented from injuring a very valuable harp, by the window shutter, which was partly closed. Tne stone apparently came from Stewart's store. To thk Editor of the New York Hrrald : Sir : Your reporter in the case of Ezekiel vs. the Oro ton Insurance Company has thought proper to aay that "this is the first case contested by that Company,"whioh I take occasion here to say, it the putt indirect, but at the same time, although not meant io be, most injudi cious and mischievous, inasmuch as it is most Riitrue, and calculated to mislead the unwary. Tho trutn is, this Croton Insurance Company has con tested a great number of cases, more than any other Company in this city of relative staadiug , nay more than half of them in the aggregate ; therelore any state ment likely to mislead the public as to their being a company not litigous, is most untrue, eud likely to he a great injury to the insuring community, who, as well as others, look to your journal lor essential servioe in guarding them against frauds of corporations as well as of individuals FRONT STREET. 37th October, 1345.
