'1 he chuicu itself is very splendid, in fact, to our idea, its iu'erior ia the hundaomest one in the city, and the arrangement of the pews is excellent. The whole atyle of the building is moat graceful. The pulpit is highly ornamented with cai ved wood work, but what particularly struck ua, was the beauty of the organ, which exhibits light airy orna mented work, entirely different from the heavy, sombre appearance which this part of a church usually oxhibits, it 11 to be regretted that i u building this church, they had not sufficient room to exhibit as magnificent an ex tenor as they do an interior.

Breach of Marriage Promise ?This wu en action instituted by a lady, whoi* respectably connected io tbii city, and Joe* i business in on# oftbe paper ?tores in Fulton street. to : recover damage* fur breach of marriage promiee, against the defendant, who keep* a paper and stationary store in .Maiden lane, and the inventor of the "Manifold Letter ( Writer." The case created a good deal ol interest, par ticularly amongst the friend* ot the parties. There was a Urge arrav of female witnesses in attendance, who evinced a good deal of sympathy for Ml** Steele, who is a lady of unblemished reputation, moving among n large and respectable circle of relations una friend* in this i city. The deteudant is also long and lavorably known in tho community in this city, and married a widow lady in March iaat, in violation of his alleged engagement | with Mias Steele, which ha* caused her to institute the p'oceedings in the present case, to recover compensa j tion for the injuries her feelings have sustained thereby; > and also for tho dam ago which her future prospects are 1 likely to sustain, in consequence oi the alloged desertion ! by the defendant. | Mr. (. HostwKt.u opened the case as follows :-Gentle I men of the Jury, this is an action brought bv a lady against a man, lor the non performance ot marriage pro mise?a form of uctiou which is not very frequent in our Courts?and which comes before you, gentlemen, for 1 the purpose ol deciding upon its merits. It will be my > business, gentlemen, to state the facts of the case to you, ami in*induce the testimony to sustain it; and it will be , yours to pass upon it. 1 shall proceed to lay before y ou the facts we intend to introduce in evidence. Sonic ten years ugo the parties engaged in the present suit, were engaged doing business together ill a bookbinding esta blishment, belonging to a Mr. Day in this city;and both being engaged m d -ii g business in the sume establish merit, a friendly acquaintance was commenced between Miss Steele and the defendant, who was serving His lime to the business.That acquaintance continued until the de fendant got through his time; and ho f ubsequentiy went a id sought employ raont elsewhere. Within a short time after completing his apprenticeship, he renewed his ac quaintance and commenced his addresses as suitor-this was in the year 183U or '37. lie then having recently commenced his business as a book-binder and stationer, and also become engaged in the business ol manulactu reringofwhut iscald the "Manifold Letter Writer," bo carried on his establishment in William street, still paying bis addresses to Miss Steele; but the marriage was not arranged to take place, owing to his situation ut that time, which he considered would not justify him in incurring the expenses of a family. It was, however, understood that they were to be mariied as soon at his circumstances should improve, and the eourUhip conti nued, with this understanding until the year IHto, when a written correspondence passed between the parties, and this was the only occasion in which it occur'ed At that time, in the year 1840, the period had arrived when they were to have beon married, and in one of his letters of correvpondencu at this date, the defendant states, "the time is near when we are to be happy together for life." A year, however, passed over without mariiage after the period fixed upon, and he still continued, his attentions growing more warm,and looked upon by all among their acquaintances-the y oung people with whom the asso ciated?as parties who wero duly engaged, and those at tentions so continued until the fall oi 1844. Without as signing any reason, he suddenly ceases his attentions and intimacy, and in February 1845,he finally deserts her and marries another lady. Since that timo, gentlemen, he has never given the least reason or excuse for thus abandoning her; and the only reason or excuse ottered by hint for the non-performance of his contrsct all through, namely, his circumstances, at this critical period hud favorably changed, so as to enable him to consummate his promise?the point had just arrived when Miss Steele had expected the fulfillment of his en gagement, for then he had just gone into the book-sell itig business in Maiden Lauo, and it was at this very pe riod when she expected the marriage would be consum mated, that tho defendant in this case broke through his engagement. He has never, gentlemen, given an excuse to this respectable lady for the wound lie has inflicted upon her feelings; he is perfectly familiar with her cha racter and circumstances, and there is no reason grow ing out of any circumstance which could favor or jus tify any excuse or any apology, and wu cannot find any thing in the whole case that would utt'ord the lemotest grounds for the formation of any apology. The fact is, gentlemen, the lady to whom he got married was aware of this intimacy, as ho was with her four or five years, she having kept a boarding house; und there was no excuse, except, posssibiy, the very circumstance in relation to better situation, which lie doubtless considered he would acquire by his mar riage with tliis lady. It was not love that seducod him irom us?no, gentlemen, he thought he could make some bettor alliance, end nothing else; but something of this kind can be im gii <vl. He is now living in ro rpectable atj le in t\i > cit in very comfortable circum stance 1 know ol no excuse be can oiler, unless it be th e that lie In the privib-ge to determiuo not to hai i- married at all And with regard to my client, genii ine tact is, that now having been engaged lor s a time, and through a period of life, which to all is t valuable, she ia now to be left to earn her liv ing a she can, deserted by this defendant. Now, if this opinion, I apprehend that such Is not the opinio the community in which be lives, or the law in this c< .it, or the jury who are to pass upon this case. 1 shall now, gentlemen, call the witnesses. Mr. Wm. Day was the first witness sworn, and exa mined by Mr. Cromwell?I am acquainted with the plaintill'; she is neice to my wifo; Francis the defend ant was boarding with me; Miss Steele was ueico to my former wife: Mr. Francis first commenced his attentions to Miss Steele about seven yeais ago; be ceased paying these attentions in the fall oi 1844; 1 called on him to know tho reason; he did not mention the cause; 1 saw him married, in February: he is toe inventor oi the "manifold letter writer;" ins ' visits wero at all times friendly, sociable visits; I have no knowledge ot his staying with her late at night when the family retired; 1 can't suy if he did. Cross-examined By Mt. Giharii? I think Mis* Steele is the elder oi the two; Mr. Francis came to board with mo after his apprenticeship, and also in John Day's tumi ly; we lived opposite each other in Greenwich street: the factory was in the rear of John's house; Mr. Francis always was intimate with the family; he was a handy young man, that attended to the ladies, single or married, old or young (laughter); I retired from the bookbind ing business in 183d or 1836; my brother John continued in it; after my brother John broke up business, Mr. Francis worked with a Mr. Fonoyer; Mist Steele also worked there; Mr Francis was on \j*iting terms with tho family until some few months ogo; Miss Steele was absent from the city at Hartford at one time, for a year; she was often absent at other periods, sometimes for a mouth, and other times for six weeks, during intervals, for the lust four years. Direct resumed ?1 can't swear if Miss Steele is young er than Mr. Francis' present wife. Letters of correspondence from defendant addressed to plaintiff, and dated in the months of July 19, IH10, Au gust, &c , were put in and withdrawn until a subsequent stage in the case. Isaac L). Botcic examined.?I know the parties in this suit; I resided with them at Mr. Day's in the year 1837; their intimacy commenced about this period Mr. Girard.?We are called upon hereto account for a breach of marriage promise, and I object to their in ro ducing particular acts.

I lay it gravely, it would be establishing a dangerous principle, as no young man would then bo cafe in visiting the family of any of his friends. The Corot overruled the motion, and Mr. Gikakli briefly opened lor the defence?We have teen enough, gentlemen, to enable us to form an opinion on this case, that the lady in the present suit had made up her mind to become en old maid. Her good and ami able qualities ate universally conceded by the defend ant She was received by him as a frieud, and as she bad made up her mind to live and die uu old maid, she determined she would never marry, and did not intend to take upon her the burden of a family.

Mr. Francis was engaged doing business in my factory ; he boarded with the family of my brother ; Mr. Fra iris was intimate with Miss Steele, I never heard about the promise of marriage ; I asked .Miss Steeleabout getting inirried ; I said, ?'

The defendant had been for many years a subscriber to ' tho Journal of Commerce, and on the 17th of Muy, 1840, he gave notice to have the paper stopped. In disregard of the notice the paper was regularly sent to him at Madison, New Jersey, to September 30, 1843, and the plaintiffs bring suit to recover the subscription for that time. The plaintiffs proved the sending of tho paper by , mail to defendant. Mr. Phillips, sworn on the part of tho defendant, testi fied that defendant requested him to send his young man to the Journal of Com tierce office,and have his paper stop ; ped; that lie did so; that defendant requested him ogain , to seud his youug man, as the paper still came directed ; to him; that lie again sent his young man; that defendant ; again told him that the paper still continued to come ad- ! dressed to him; when witness told turn he could do no mure, that he, defendant, had done all he could to have i : the paper discontinued.

It was stated in yesterday's Herald, that tho charge of felony made against this gentleman would, in all probability, re sult i n his discharge from all suspicion of guilt.? This prediction has heen well verified ; for Mr. Van Al styne was yesterday honorably acquitted of all intention to do wrong, after a full examination heioro one of the Brooklyn magistrates. Anti-Storting Regulations.?Several persons from Brooklyn and Ne'.v York were arrested at Carnaria on Sunday'last, for an alleged violation of the very appro piiate Sabbath ordinances existing in that place. The culprits were detected in tbo possession of dogs, fowling pieces, large quantities of powder and shot, and " any amount" of percussion caps. The Squires of the village did their duty by holding the offenders to bail to answer for their bold delinquencies. Another Warning?On Sunday morning a man named Moore, residing in Concord street, returned home about 10 o'clock, and ascending a peach tree in the yard, made ono end of a rope fast to a limb, the other round his neck, and then jumped. Koituuately the rope was so long that ins feet struck the ground. He then bent tin bis knees and would have succeeded in putting a period to his ex istence, but was, discovered by his wife and cut down hetore life was extinct. He had been drinking to excess for a short time before, and is supposed to have been laboring under the effects of delirium tremens at the time he made tho rash attempt on his own life. Polk p.

Long Lland went up J per cent.; antou 1; Norwich Ac Worcester j; Heading RKj; Mor. ns i unal d; Harlem, Stouington and Vicksburg closed firm at yesterday's price,. The transaction, were large foreign exchange closod firm at our last quota tions. Sterling bills are firm as 9} a 9J per cent premium, but the sales have not been very extensive by this packet, as it is anticipated that the Hibernia Horn Boston will reach Liverpool before the Great Britain, and those having remittances to make, prefer waiting for that conveyance, as they save three or four days in terest. ' The speculation now going on in some of tho railroad Stocks has, Within the past week, advanced quotations from five to ten per cent. Notwithstanding this advance these stocks are not selling for more than they are worth for pormanent investments. More than twelve months ago these stocks were selling at ten and fifteen per cent above the present quotations, and they have ia the meantime improved very much in actual value. Hail, road stocks, above all others, are investmenU of a cha racter ensuring, ultimately, returns auffl-.ient to make up all arrearages. Theso works are so intimately con nected with tho commercial operations of the country, I that they must experience an improvement correspond ing with tbe growth and prosperity of the whole Union I The present quotation, for many of the railroad stocks, bought and sold in this market, are about I the same .as those ruling previous to the war fever that spread so generally over the country, and had such an unfavorable influence upon all kinds of business matters. The dangers that for a time surrounded our ex | ttrnal commerce, and the difficulties in our foreign rela tions that threatened to destroy tho poaceful relations that exist between this and all otner countries, have dis appeared, and everything looks favorable for a long pe riod of prosperity. The bank, of our large cities are steadily expauding their movements and extending fa duties to advance every enterprise that makes its ap pearance in the commercial world, and as the business operations of tbe cities increase, the country banks will be called upon for discount., and the currency very ra pidly become inflated. New banks are sj,ringing into existence in every section of the country, and the in crease in banking capital has within the past year been a larger per cent than in the previous five. The railroad mania of Europe is spreading to this country. Its ad vauce here will be more gmdual than in England but I when once under way, it will be nearly as extern flive. I By the arrival of the steamship Great Western from Liverpool, we havo commercial advices from all parts oi Europe seven days later than those receit ed by the Hi bernia at Boston. The news is highly interesting, and in a commercial point of view very important. All doubts in relation to the harvests of Great Britain an removed. The crops this year will be at least three , million, of quarters lass than la.t. The of the yield concur in representing it tube below an average by at least 5 per cent, that is 57 pounds per bushel in I stead of 60 pounds. The crop of last year was about an i average, and umouutod to about 21 ,000,000 quarters while the highest estimates for 1845 are 19,000,000 quar era. This relates to Wheat alone. Tho oat crop will be about an average, but ail the root crops are shert particularly potatoes, tbe decline being general in all' parts of the kingdom. It will lie seen by these statements, that the wheat crop alono is short twenty-four million bushels, com pared with last year, which must come from foreign countries, in addition to the quantity usually imported " the Un,,e<1 Kingdom, to make np the amount re quired to supply the demand for consumption, i There is at present very little doubt but that as large [ an amount of corn will be required from foreign conn tries, for consumption in Great Britain this year a. in any previous; not that the deficiency in the crop of wheat will be so great as in former years, but because the defi | ciency in other crops will be greater than usuol. Any I 'leficieucy in the supply of corn advances the prices, and compels the poorer classes to (all back upon the lo wer priced orticles of food, such as potatoes, and all kinds of I vegetables, but this year they will not have that alter j native. There appears to he a corresponding deficiency ! ,na" ,he principal articles of food. , The largest amount paid by Great Britain for foreign grain was in 1839, when it reached ?7,515,964. At which time there was only ?2,325,000 in bullion in the Bank of England. In 1941, the value of foreign corn im 1 parted into England, amounted to ?7,495,912, and in the same j ear tho bullion in the Bank amounted to only ?4,. 495,000. Tbe Bank of England has now on hand bullion ?mounting to ?14,355,670, and the quantity of foreign grain, necessary to supply tho deficiency, ia tho crops of the Kingdom, and the demand for consumption, that must within the nest twelve moaths be imported, will not be much, if any less, than three millions of quarters oi wheat alone, or tweuty-four million, of bushel, va lued at least as high as eight millions of pounds sterling or more than one-half of the bullion iu the bank of Em gland. We do not see the effect of a short harvest in Great Britain so much in the drain, it alone has upon the bul lion of the Bank, as we do in all the manufacturing and commercial di tricts, and upon the price of the great sta ple productions of the southern section of this country The Bank ot England could stand a draiu of more than half the amount of bullion in her vaults, without redu cing its paper circulation a single pound. The Bank never has put out its issues to the extent permitted tin derthe new banking lav of Englanl, by eight to ten millions of pounds rtarliug, and a reduction in its bul lion to that amount, could have no influence upon the present circulation. In 1839 and 1941 when the bullion in the bank became reduced to so small an amount, it was not caused entirely by the bad harvests of that peri od. The commercial speculations of 1836 to 1*39 had reduced the resources of the bank to a vory low point and weakened it in other points, so that when the two short harvest of 1839 and 1810, came upon the country tbe hank was not in a position to sustain itself, and was compelled to call upon the Bank of France I or aid, which was granted,and the Bank of England saved. The country is now more r.ble to bear the evils ono short harvest can produce but that they will be great, no one can doubt ho part we bear in the general depression, comes through our cotton, the price of which must be very un favorably .fleeted. The exportation ol, a de mand in Great Britain will produce, will relieve our pro ducer. of a portion of their large .locks, but should we And a foreign market for every bushel of whe.t we can ?pare, it would not offset the losses experienced by the depreciation in the value of cotton in the market, o, , Europe. < 1 he London money market continue, to be abundant ly supplied with capital for commercial purposes, and ' the rate of interest demanded by the Bank of England 1 ruled at 2) per cent. The rate of discount out of the bank ruled at 3 percent. The railway speculations coe tinueil unabated, and now schemes were coming up eve i ry day. The princijiai journals of London differ mate rially in relation to the probable result of the immense | ?peculations going on in railway shares. It is argued (hot the investment of capital in railway shares differs very much from all those bubbles schemes which have heretofore roduced so many to bankruptcy, deranged the money market, and brought so much distress upon the country. The lines that pass the Board of Trade and reoaira the Mhetjeti of Parliament, wm, wluteal doubt, be eompteted. and ultimately beoom. productive! white thoee preeeated end ?et aooepted, will be diaealv ad, the Investments ralhadad, and tha subacribera weful ly disappointed.

The prosjiect for a large yield from tho crops now com ing to market, i* of the moat favorable nature. The sea son for picking so far has been mild and dry, and so far without frost sufficiently severe to check the growth of the plant. Various catimates have been formed of the extent of the yield, but they differ very much, varying irom 3,300.000 to 3.400.000 baios. The largest quantity is, without doubt, the nearest to the actual production. Every thing depends upon a continuance of the present pleasent weather, and it is so uncertain hew long it will Inst, that nil estimates made at this early day, can not he founded upon any good data, and are merely guess work, or made at random. The ad vices that will reach England by this steamer, from the cotton growing sections of thi* country, will have a tendency to depresa price* in the principal market. There are at present two powerful cautea operating to reduce the price of the raw material The firit and greatest ii the ihort harveats throughout Europe, and tho second the proapect of e large crop of cotton in the United State*, and we have no doubt that the markets of Great Britain for thia ateple, will be for months, mere depressed than they are at present.
