NEW YORK HER ALD. Ilitw i'ork, Friday, October 31, 1843. Notice to Subscribers. Subscribers in the country receiving their psper* in yellow envelope*, will understand that their term of subicription ha* nearly expired. Weekly Herald. The Weekly Herald, with two beautiful pictorial views ia Oregon and on the Rocky Mountains, and an engraving of a curiously looking philosopher called a Chinese warrior, illustrating Hernisz' inter esting lectures on the "Central Flowery Land," will be published at 8 o'clock to-morrow morning. It will also contain all the interesting and im|>ortant news of the week. Malls for Europe. The letter bags of the steam ship Hibernia, for Halifax and Liverpool, will close in this city this af ternoon at half past three o'clock The evening edition of the Herald, with the most important political, financial, fashionable and thea trical intelligence that has transpired since t.'.e de parture of the (Ireat Britain, will be published at halt past two o'clock, in time for the steamer's mail. This edition, in wrappers, can be had at two cents per copy, More Foreign News. Two steamers are now nearly due?the Massa chusetts at this port, with advices from Liverpool to the 15th, and the Caledonia at Boston with dates to the 19th inst. The Oregon Question?Muttering* of the Thunder. As the period approaches when the President will deliver his opinion and views relative to the present position of the Oregon question, the fears of the ?unid. the apprehensions of the time-serving, and the feverish anxiety of the commercial classes and those engaged in speculations which depend on the con tinuance of peaceful relations between the two coun tries, increase and grow with marked intensity.? The Journal of Commerce of yesterday has a long article, written apparently in a state ol great trepi dation and nervousness,?denouncing all those who insist upon the claims of the United States to the whole of the Oregon territory,?describing with a terrible sinking at the heart the overwhelming force of Great Britain on the ocean?exaggerating all our points of weakness,?deprecating with most zeal ous enthusiasm any collision between the two coun tries?and with hinds clasped in fervent devotion, for once not hypocritical, imploring heaven to pre serve peace, and incline the heart of the President to a relinquishment of our claims as set forth in his inaugural address. How it cannot be denied that there is ground for , the alarm felt by the stock-jobbing cliques, in the po- ' siticnof the administration, and the country itself, S in relation to Oregon The best proof of this is to be found in the course taken with regard to Texas annexation at the recent whig meeting. It may be ! leasonably supposed that the South and West would be working in favor of an extension of our territo- ! ry, so as to include those regions which lie mo6t | adjacent to their farthest limits, and also that the democratic party would be in favor of the same . policy. But we find now, from the developments in that whig meeting, growing out of the quarrels of j sundry of their leaders and organs, that the great portion of the whig party is decidedly in favor of the same grand and magnificent movement of Ame rican democracy for the occupation of the whole of this continent. Attempts were made by the aboli tion clique to commit the whigs in this region to j anti slavery and various ether fanatical notions, and to unite them for the purpose of throwing obstruc- 1 tionsin the way of a final settlement of the annex ation question as far as regards Texas,and no doubt with similar views relative to Oregon and Califor nia; but all these efforts were completely ineffectual j To our astonishment, and that of every one looking ! calmly on these events, the whig party itself has fairly divided on these questions, and the greater portion goes with the grand movement of the age, tor the extension of liberty and democratic institu tions to the uttermost extremities of this mighty continent. No doubt all these most significant indications of the spirit and tone of popular sentiment and popular 1 impulse will have due weight and influence with the President. He must assume the highest ground; and whatever speculators and commercial agents, and timid men and stock-jobbers may think, the position of this country is of the strongest charac ter, and will be maintained no matter what course England may adopt. Even in Great Britain the or gans of the popular party begin to speak out with boldness and spirit in favor of that policy which is subjugating to Anglo-Saxon intelligence and civili zation, and free government, tne extended regions of this western world. No European diplomacy?no fleets or armies of England or any other power, can stop the onward movement of democratic institu tions on this continent. We are destined to be the lords and rulers of the whole land, and we cannot and will not suffer the dominion to be wrested from us or divided. The Electric Telegraph ?This subject begins to attract the attention of the newspapers, and par ticularly in one point of view?that is, as to whether it is to be in the hands of the government, or of individuals. A certain portion of society is in fa vor of putting the telegraph in the hands of individ uals, thinking that government may use it to the \ disadvantage of the public. But as we have seen how government management degenerates into i sheer partisanship, perhaps, on second thought, it may be the best method to keep it in the hands of individuals, who are generally the most enlightened and liberal in their conduct towards the pablic at large. Still it is a mooted question The recent express lines, established for the conveyance of par- I eels and valuables from this metropolis to all the most important cities in the country, have earned lor themselves a high reputation for impartiality, diligence, and integrity. This is a specimen of what private enterprise, directed to a most impor tant matter, connected with social and commercial intercourse, can effect It is supposed, indeed, that if the Post Office Department were in the hands of j private individuals, that it would be much better managed than at present. Still, with respect to the electric telegreph, it is clear that there ought to be some responsibility somewhere. It is going to be : one of the most impoftant engines in the new era of civilization dawning upon the world ; and unless the public have a proper conception of its reeponsi- J bilities and its characteristics at the commence ment, great injury may be done, and great evil and gteat excitement ensue. It is a subiect worthy of the most attentive investigation. Steam Shit Great Western ?It seems to be the impression abroad, that this steam ship remain ed off Sandy Hook for some time, in want of a pi lot, and that our pilots were not, therefore, on duty. In order to set the public aright in this matter, it is only necessary to mention that 110 less than three New York pilot boats saw, and gave chase to her, on ihe day before she came into port. Two of them * 'W her 160 miles rastot the hook, about 8 o'clock on Monday morning, and one on that night. The latter fired guns for her, but without effect; the Great Western ran awuy (rom her?from the , three piloteers. The Morals or Boston ?'Three murders have h"n committed in Boston within six months; the l?'ri?etrutors have not been detected,Hnd noi a cent 0| reward for their apprehension has been offered by either the State or city authorities.

The Chairman at length obtained a hearing, and the rest of the nominations were responded to. When the name ot Jonathan D.Stevenson was read,the cheering was positively deafening. The meeting now became very uproarious?cries for "Walsh," "Walsh," were heard in various directions. Captain Rynders again attempted to make a spoecli. but tailing to obtain a hearing, said, he did nt care a damn for anybody." The cries for Walsh still continued. The Chairman read a senes of resolution!, trom which we have selected the following as the most im pgrumi. Capt. RviDras during the reading very kindly held the light. Resolved, That in our opinion Congress should adopt a lesolution giving notice to the British Oevernment of the intention of the United States to put an end to the joint occupation of Oregon?and also should pass such laws as may be necessary to protect our lellow-citizens who have emigrated to that country under the ilag of the United States?that our duty to our countrymen as well as the increasing value of the Oregon Territory, in a national point of view, demand prompt and ener getic action on the part of the United States. (Great ex citement and applause ) Resolved, That we view with suspicion and alarm, the interference of European powers with ths attaint of the American continent: and that we trust President Polk will reiterate the policy of President .Monroe as to re sisting European interference-and that in our opinion the mighty mission of the American Union requires she should not permit the despotisms of the Old World to overwhelm the principle of republican liberty whilst struggling into full life on this continent. Resolved, That we demand a modification of the tariff' of 1841 ; and in regulating a tariff'we recognize but one principle?the collection ut sufficient revenue to pay the expenses ot our economical administration of the gov ernment. (Cheers.) Resolved, That we cannot tint rebuke any factious spirit which attempts to create division, ynd thereby pro duce the defeat of the democratic party ; that we are opposed to every faction tending to this end, and that the safety and triumph of the republican party imperiously demand union end harmony of all sections of our forces Resolved, That we are in favor of a Convention to Reform the Constitution of this Htatu, believing that un der the present organic law, too much power is placed in the hands of the governing class, ana which power is unjustly withheld fiom the people Resolved, (in the language of Andrew Jackson.) That " the Union must and snail be preserved;" that the ef forts of the abolitionists, here and in England, to disturb its hsrmony and integrity, will never meet with sympa thy lroin the democratic party of the north: that ttie in evitable result of the success of abolitionism would be to create a pinching competition between the labor of the negro and that o the white man; that an extension of tl>e right ot suffrage to fifteen thousand negroes, would place in their hands the belence of power in tue State; and that this meeting feels it incumbent to declare (hat any proposition to inierfere with the rights of the States, or any project having in view the extension of negro suffrage, will meet with its steady and determin ed opposition. (Tremendous cheering ) Ven t ns the Caowo?I move the resolutions be adopted. S? vtKiL Voicr.s?singly,singly?we want them adopt ed singly. After one of the greatest scones of confusion weaver witnessed, during which several rows occurred, some body said the resolutions v. ere adopted, j J a mi s t.. ]<r riiraroan, of the f-d ward, then offered ? the following, which was unanimously adopted: whereas, the democratic republican electors of the city and county of New Vork, do earnestly desire a change in the present odious militia system, which is both uujust and aristocratic, inasmuch as the rich man, by paying a lew dollars, or sending a substitute, is excu sad from serving, while the poor man, if unable to pay the fine imposed on him, is torn from his family and thrust into prison?therefore, Resolved, That we. the democratic republican elec tors of the city of New Vork, assembled in general meeting, do hereby instruct our representatives in the legislature to use their best endeavors to lepcal the pre sent militia law of this State. Theories for Waleh were now renewed from all quar ters? Miac Walsh now obtained a hearing, and was greet ed by tremendous applause, shouting, waving of fiats, caps and handkerchiefs. He commenced hy some sar castic and scorching allusions to the humbugging spout ers at political meetings, who attempted to impose upon the people by coinm -nplace harangues ubout liberty and democracy. He then went on to speak with character ? Stic vehemence and eloquence ol the wrongs and suffer ings ol the poor and working classes, who were used as mere stepping stones to power and place by onprincipled demagogues \x great length he spoke of the offected sympathy for the hard working man displayed hy " rich loateie,' who were ever reudy about election times to step up and affectionately shake by the hands any poor I man who had a vote, though the wind might be playing hide and n peek through the (ottered wit of hi* breech ? es, but, liked Mike, when did one of theie nabob* rolling in luxury, the fruit of the sighs, groans, suffering!, ana even premature death* of the poor men, think of "in viting hii ragged " friend'- to dinner f Mike, then, after a slap at the lyitem of givtng the public work out by contract, described the democratic party as mainly com posed of the working men. How then did it happen, he asked, that on the tieket not one working man's name *??, to be found ? Mike concluded by moving that tho name of Samuel J. Tilden be struck from the ticket. Here Dr. Vache mysteriously disappeared from the stand -sloped?and made his wsy rapidly down atairs. Mike Walsh's motion, however, was seconded, put and carried by acclamation, and tbe Hall was still densely crowded. Three cheers were then given for Mike Walsh, and amid shouts, yells, confusion, and several small rows, the meeting broke up. Native American Meeting, l,uet Kveiling, at American Hall. A meeting of the Native American party, last evening, took place at their head quarters, "Ameri can Hall;" and the ill humor that manifested itself among the party who had assembled long before the hour ot meeting, shows how very keenly they smart under the rebukes of the press. The old adage, that " drowni ng men will eaten at straws," was ne ver more forcibly illustrated than on last evening,in the case of these " natives," so called. About sev en o'clock our reporter made his way to a table which was placed in front ot the chair, alter much difficulty, when he took his seat amid the most mys terious buzzing and wh ispering imaginable. " He rald," " Herald," was whispered here and stammer ed there; and had the ghost of their utter defeat at the last election risen from the grave, or the shade of old Beelzebub himself iouna its way to the re porters' table, it could not have so caused the hair to " stand on end," as did the appearance of our re porter. After a few minutes'delay, a man with a " shocking bad hat" came up to the table, when the following humorous dialogue took place: Mr. Shocking Bad Hat- - What paper do you belong tot IU:roRiKii?I don't consider myself bound to auswei such a question lrom you, Si r Mr. Shockino Bad Hat?I'll let ye's to see that ye s shall tell. Reporter I don't see how you can undertake to do so, Sir. Shocking Bad Har? I'll lind out, Sir-I'll find out.? [Exit shocking Bad Hat. There was some considerable buzzing and under growling raised hereupon, and some stifled cries of "turn him out, Herald, Hi raid. The man with the "bad hat" here called together seven members of the party, who held a mysterious con sultation for about five minutes, forcibly reminding us of the fable in our spelling book long ogo, in relation to tne "town that feared a siege." " A town feared a siege and held consultation which was the best method of fortifi. cation. A grave skiliul mason gave in his opinion, that nothing but stone could secure the dominion. A carpen ter said: that "that was well spoke," but was better by far to defend it with oak. A Currier, wiser than both these together, said, " do what you please, there is nothing like leather." The fate ot thenatirc party, so called, must evidently have depended upon the presence of our reporter, from the grave and solemn declaration of this council, who looked as mysterious anil as long visaged as if ihey had been discussing that sublime clause in the Constitution which is the proud boast of every true American?the inheritance lelt by the glorious fathers of the Republic, which is emblazoned in golden letters upon the glorious banner of the Constitution, " freedom to the press?un shackled in its opinions?perfect freedom of thought and opinion?freedom of debate " Had these men who claim to inherit the brilliant souls that animated the glorious Tounders of the Constitution, who penned these em phatic lines with a pen of adamant, been discussing the provisions in this clmise of the Constitution, they could not have deliberated with such grave solemnity. After the consultation one of the party, (not bad hat,) came lorward and said to our reporter, " I understand, sir, you belong to the Herald, and we have concluded uot to allow you to remain here. Reporter.?I.don't see how you can compel me to leave the meeting, although I belong to the Herald. Native.?That's easily managed, Sir; but 1 would re commend you to quietly retire. (Cries of " Turn him out," "turn him out." Reporter.?Vou don't mean to say, that you would have me put out forcibly ? Native.?Certainly, Sir, or any one from the Herald office. The Herald has so badly treated us, that we have determined not to allow any one from that paper at any of our meetings, so you hail better quietly retire. Reporter.?Well, I expect that in retiring I shall be protected. 1 have come here in the discharge of a pro fessional duty, and it is my duty to take notes of the proceedings if I be permitted to do so : if not, and that I , am compelled to retire, 1 shall do so, very quietly. Natite.?Well, Sir, you may consider yourself com pelled to leave, and let us part quietly. Reporter.?Very well, sir, we part on the quietest terms imaginable, Our Reporter hereupon left amid cries of " turn out he fellow." " Turn him out from the Herald," and so mded this humorous and comical affair, which should lave been seen to be enjoyed. A sketch ofthe man with he " shocking bad hat" in the foreground of a wood cut, vould repay Cruikshank himself lor the etching?"bad lat" and all. National Reformers. These philosophers called a public meeting for la?t tvening, at 159 Madison street, for the purpose ot responding to the nominations made by the general committee ol candidates for Senate, members of As" | sembly and Register. From some cause or other the public did not at tend, and up to 8 o'clock not over 20 persons,besides the officers who called the meeting, were in attend- j ance. On entering the room we discovered this small collection ol reformers in a very disconsolate mood, accounting for the failure of the call to attract an audience in, various ways. Some assigning one j cause, some another?the majority accounting for it by the natives posting their bills over those of the reformers. On the Iront of the platform was hung tiie call of the meeting, at the head of which glared in large capital*, " Freedom of *he Public I,and*," and alongside u handkerchief American llag with, " Vote the land free," and " Daddy, vote me a farm,"printed on the white ctripeH. At s o'clock, aa a matter of form, the meeting waa call ed to order, Mr.* wan nominated Chairman, and Mr. Baldwin, Secretary, and each of these gentlemen receiving one roto in his favor, and there being no noes they were unanimously elected. The Chaihman then read the call of the meeting, when the candidates of this party for Senator, Register and members of Assembly were submitted to the meeting, and the ayes and noes being called there was found to he one in their favor and none against them, so they were declared to be the candidates of the party, and the iO persons present declared they would vote for no other ticket than that of the National reformers. The follow ing gentlemen are the candidates :? Kor Senator, Francis C Treadwell, of Kings Co.; for Register, Ransom Smith; for Assembly, Alvan K. Bovay; Samuel .VI. Jones, Israel I'eck, Simon Clannon, Thomas II Allison, Dennis l.yons, Benjamin K. Summerbell, William Vlarston, Robert Trousdale, Alexander Stott, William ltowe, George Scank, and Charles B. Benton. J. Mr. Ksiscn C. Tikadwull, the candidate for Senator, addressed the meeting for a short time, and while he was speaking, we observed the Secretary in the bnr room, with u long nine in his mouth, and as comforta ble as could be expected undci the circumstaDcer. Mr. . Treadwell, in the course of his speech, attacked the landholders in Delaware, and the other anti-rent coun ties, and insisted that they had no right to the land in ! question, that there was no consideration given by them originally for the land, hut they recoived them in re turn for political services rendered l>y them in making slaves of the people; that even if they had given a good consideration, the Constitution ol this State did not re- ' cognise their title, and therelore they have none; and, furthermore, the tenants having been in possession for 1 upwards of twenty years, are the real and tightful own- j ers of ihe land. But this sapient reformer did not inform the audianco that the anti-ienters, by leasing ol the land loid* per n-acknowledged the title in the landlord, and that in suoh case, likewise, the possession by the tenant is | possession by the landlord, and therefore even admitting the tenants to he in possession -JO years under the title ol the landlord, it but substantiates the title ot the landlord, by their own argument, ({ui Jacit p<r ahum jaat r>e- s?. Mr. C'.'MCBtoao next addressed the meeting, lie oc cupied but a short time, and the meeting adjourned to . cast their votes next week for their candidates, and a j farm ol 160 acres for every mother's son of them. Assists oi the City Bank of Buffalo.?We have received a quarto brochure, containing a list of the assets of the recent City Bunk of Buffalo, which ex ploded some years ago, and which will be sold at an early day next month. These u?s< ts consist of pro missory notes and obligations, originally given by some of the most distinguished politicians in Buffalo to the bank for money borrowed. And singularly enough, the name of the Hon L), Webster, of Mas sachusetts, is quite distinguished on the list. The money borrowed from the bank by these distin guished jioliticians and speculators, was chiefly ex pended in the purchase ol lots and other sjieculative property, in various parts of the country, und which were lost in the revulsion and fall ol prices. The book contains the evidence, to a certain extent, Cf the manner in which distinguished men, of all poll, tical creeds, have got into die bowels of various banks throughout the countiy.and gutted them out of their very existence. No doubt th?se assets will be sold as great bargains, like (lie prizes sometimes goi at the sale ot damaged goods occasioned by a ship wreck. Every obligation and promisory note, it ought to be rrcollected, has the name of a distin guished politician, statesman, judge, or lawyer, which will be at least worth something, were it only aa an autograph. We don't think that they will be anyllnng more valuable limn as autographs, all ihe assets of the City Bank of Buffalo .wraiPtii Bo i n |t is stated that ai ihe lale cat tle show <n PithHeld, ? nmde was practiced tornado tils Inw relative to celling liquor. Passengers were rar. ried back and forth in an omnlbm for six cents, and fur nished with a horn gratis ? Park Theatre ?There was a tremendous houi* l&it night to hear Leopold Jf Meyer, for we in rain leak for a sufficiently expressive title to give, and calling turn (imply Leopold de Meyer la glory enough, for what other could ever be confounded with hitn. Alter the per formance of the " Comedy of Charlea the 2nd," which by ! tiie'bye.wai very well performed,he made hii appearance smilst shouts of applauae, and performed bit brilliant in. troduction and variationt on the favorite drinking song from "Lucrezia Boigia." A dance from the Miaaea Vallee followed,after which he again appeared and performed the grand inarch " Triomphale D'laly." Both hit plecea were received with immense applauae, and after the latter one the calls for De Meyer were vociferous, and in obedi ence to them he appeared and performed a third piece. We have already noticed at full the pieces he performed last evening, and will only say now that there never w as and probably never will be such a pianist as Leopold I De Meyer. To-night Mr. Murdock makes his last ap pearance and takes his benefit, lie will play " Mac beth," with Mrs. Bland as Lady Macbeth; they will also play in the farce of " Perfection." Bowery Theatre.?The attendance last night, at this house, was very large, and the different pieces gave great satisfaction- The manaer in which they are got up re flects great credit on the manager?in fact, in the matter of putting a play on the stage, no Theatre in the woild can beat fhe old Bowery. The melodramatic pieces that are produced here, though full of the most difficult trans itions of scenery, uniformity go off with the smoothness of oil. Any one who has ever visited this theatre, may form some idea of the immense labor requisite to man age all these changes; but not only in the scenery does it excel; the stock company are all most excellent ac tors, and we doubt if any better one can be found in the States. To-night Messrs. Coney and Blauchard take a benefit. It is the first one they have had since their arri val from England, and they present a most attractive bill, consisting of no less than four dramas, viz: " Tiie Dumb Slave," the "Ourang Outang," the "Adopted Child," and the " Cherokee Chiel." The sagacious dogs Hector and Bruin will taks part in the performances; and we are certain that with all this attraction, Messrs. Coney and Blanchard will arise richer men to morrow morning. Ole Bull's Concert.?The Tabernacle was crammed last night There could not have been less thau four thousand and upwards in the housi. The great Norwe. gian was never more himself than on this occasion, the whole'of the poetry of his fine mind'appeared to shine out with redoubled vigor, and he seemed to feel to the ut most that this was probably the last time that he would perform before a New York audience, with whom he has as it were become an intimate acquaintance To an en thusiastic and manly soul such as Ole Bull's, it must truly be somewhat of a struggle to separate himseli from this country, where during the past two years, he has both received so much kindness and made so many warm and true friends?for pro bably no foreign artist has ever been so popular among us, and of one thing we are certain, that go . _ .. where he may, Ole Bull wiTl never forget his visit to America His performances last night were " A Rondo Capricioso," " The Mother's Prayer," "The Memory of Washington," and the famous " Pulacea Ouerriera."? All of them were performed as he only can do them. .Mr. Dutfield was also much applauded, his song of " Norah McShane" being loudly ^encored. Miss De Luee and Mrs. E. Loder, also sung their respective songs with much taste, and were loudly applauded. Mr. Georgo 1 Loder conducted the orchestra with his accustomed pre- j cision, and Mr. Timm on the piano was excellent. Ole Bull proceeds from hence to Philadelphia and Bal timore, where he has been particularly invited to give ' but one concert in each town previous to his final depar- 1 ture. He will return hero and immediately sail for Havre. Temtleton at Brooklyn.?We have much satisfac- ! tion in noticing the enthusiastic reception which the great Leviathan of modern minsirels last night met from the Brooklynites, who, it would seem, are not behind i ourselves in the appreciation of genius. Templeton's . entertainment tor the evening was precisely the same as i that with which he made so unprecedented an impression ' on his first appearance here. As might have been ex peeled, the house was a bumper. The unrivalled vocal- j ist was iitsuperb voice?the encores were numerous,and | the only feeling?besides the prevailing one of delight? I was regret that the brilliant evening had sped away so ! quickly. Of the sparkling hours spent with Templeton, ' we may truly say, in the words of Moore? "That when most light is on their wtigs, They are but spread to fly To-night, our readers are already aware, Templeton bids us farewell for a season, wr earnestly trust, a biief one?and if we may offer a word of advice, it is to 1 secure places early, else the chance may be but slender of finding seats. We anticipate the presence of many of our Brooklyn friends, so that we may predict an over- i flowing "bumper at parting." We indulge a hope that the great vocalist of the age, ! will not forget ua on his way trom Boston to the South. Ai.hamka.?The performances of the burlesque com pany here are very amusing indeed?in fact, the great ' variety of songs that they give cannot fail to please the most fastidious, as they include the gems from the Bohe mian Girl, burlesque Polkas, &c., besides a vocal con cert of sentimental and comic songs. Madame Augusta.?'This charming danseuse, who a few short years ago was such a favorite with the New Yorkers, will appear on Monday evening next, at the Park Theatre. There has been a hard struggle among managers to obtain her, but after all Mr. Simpson has borne away the laurels of his diplomacy, and she will thus appear here previous to her going to Philadel phia. Italian OrcRA ?The singers are all on the wing, and it appears we shall not have much Italian opera here this winter. Signora Pico, Madame Valtellina, Signor Antognini, and Signor Valtellina will leave here to morrow for Havana, where they intend remaining some two or three months. Sanquirico has not returned from Europe, where private business dotains him. De Bogms is in this city, though whether lie is going to do any thing, we know not. Signora Pico and her friends may be expected tp return here about next March or April, and give us some of the newest Italian operas. Levi J. North.?This great equestrian arrived in this j country in the Great Western on Tuesday last, after a ' very successful tour through the principal cities of ' Europe. He is about to commence an engagement 1 in Philadelphia, and there is but little doubt but that in i a short time afterwards he will present himself before > the admirers of elegant equestrian performances in this ; city. Music in Toronto.?Signor Antognini has returned ' from Toronto, where ho had the supervision ot the grand musical festival that was given there by the city. Every thing went off with great applause ; in fact, the good j people of Toronto are so delighted with this taste of ! Italian opera, that we should not be surprised to hear ol their getting up an Opera house of their own. The | following -artists accompanied Signor Antognini:? ' Miss Northall, who has become such a favorite in New : York; also Miss Andrews, of Troy, a young lady of | great promise. They were both encoied in their songs. | As for Signor Antognini, bis psrformance is so well known here, that we need not state lie gave immense satisfaction. The amateurs were very good, indeod; and much credit is due to Dr. McCaulf, Vice-President ' of King's College, who had general charge of the affair. Bible in the Schools.?It is stated in some quar ters that the Bible is to be restored to all the schools from which it has been excluded during the last few months. If this be so we are glad to hear it. There can be no harm in the introduction of the bible into the schools. It is not, perhaps, the best book to teach the elements of reading, yet still if any sec tion of society have scruples on the subject, it is better to gratify them und introduce the bible at once, reading certain passages every morning. It can do no harm. The New Testament in particular is full of the best lessons which youth can be taught, and the Old Testament has also many passages calcula ted to produce the best and most abiding impression on the youthful mind.

Kxlmtivt fraud-A young man. said to be very re spectably connected, has recently been obtaining from one or two Arms in this oity, upwards of fK.1,000 worth of property, with which, or the proceeds from which, he has absconded from the city. .In .itbiconding Debtor.- A reward of $1,000 was offer ed yesteiday, for the arrest of a man named Julius Phil li|>s, who it is said has absconded from Boston, having obtained about $10,000 worth of property from various Arms in that city. Tht Old Oame ?A young man named James Williams engaged hoard at the house of Mr. Gilbert Home, of Avenue C, near 8th street, and had a tin box deposited in a room,which was occupied by two young men named Zimmerman and Well*. In tho course of the evening he went out and took with him a watch worth $1 A, $ia in money flora the trunk of Mr. Wells and $3 lrom the trunk ef Mr. Zimmerman. His tin ho* was opened and found to contain a quantity ot limn Hubbeiy in Kinftlon. Mr. W.

Livingston and Well*, havo increased i the reward far it* recovery to $3,600, *o that there i* | every hope and prospect that thi* handsome reward will he the means of detecting the villains, and restoring the greater bulk of the missing property. Mr ir*. I. vingxton St Wells do not in tho least seek to hief. themselves or those in their employ from blame m tho affair; the messenger entrusted with the trunk in which the several parcels of money and other valuables were Slaced, grossly infringed one of the most stringent or ers of hi* employers, by leaving the trunk for a single moment, and ha* suffered accordingly. For tho future, as in London, two men are to have the trunk in custody containing the most valuable parcels, so that one or the other, if not both of them, will always be with it. This course would havo been belore adopted, but from the very small sum paid by bankera, merchants, and bro kers for the conveyance of their parcels. Nor will they be answerable for any valuable article, money, lie., un less it is entered and signed for as receivod by them or their agents. Launch at Hohoken.?A large iron steamboat was launched yesterday morning from the ship-yard of the Messrs Stevens, at Hoboken, a short distance from the ferry. There was quite a crowd assembled to witness her introduction to the future scene of her usefulness, and at nine o'clock precisely she slid off'the ways and floated beautifully on the aurface of the Hudson River. This is, we believe, the first iron steamboat proper that has been built in this country, that ia, a steamboat on the legitimate plan, with side wheels Sic., for many propel lers and screw boats have been constructed of iron, though, as we have said belore, no regular steamboats. This one is intended as a passenger boat, to be used in conjunction with the Camden and Amboy Rail Road, on the route from here to Philadelphia. She measures 346 feet in length, 64 feet width of deck, 11 feet depth of hold, and she is of 600 tons measurement. Her wheels will measure 33 teet diameter. Her saloon on deck will be 60 feet in length and 36 feet broad. Her upper or pro menade deck will be 160 feet in length. She is to have her engines furnished by Mr. Secor, and they are to be what ia called the "Jews Harp" engine, a style not much known in this country, though extensively used in Eng land. This Iteamboat has been built by the Messrs. Stevens. Her hullps all iron, the deck and upper works being wooden. The joiner-work is done by Mr. Terry, and the carpenter's work by Mr. Allison. Her cabin will be finiahed in a neat and plain style, and altogether ahe will be a great improvement over that veteran steamboat the Independence, whose place she is to take. Railroad Accident.?Joseph Snow, a German, of Woonsocket Falls, R. I., fell from the cars on Wednes day soon alter leaving the Providence depot, on the Stonington road, breaking his arm, and the wheels of the car cutting oil' his left leg just below the knee. He was carried back and placed under the care of Mr. Blaisdell, where he would be kindly provided for and sent to the hospital for surgical attendance. The train on their return, and when this side of Fast Greenwich, was detained about three hours in consequence of the breaking down of the locomotive, so that the Kastern mail did not arrive here until after 10 o'clock. The steamer Rhode Island had arrived at Stonington when the Massachusetts left, at half past 13 o'clock. Accident.?The steamboat Troy met with a slight ac cident yesterday morning,shortly after leaving the dock, on her usual morning trip. It was merely the breaking of the centre pin, but it rendered a return to the city ne cessary. The North America took her place, and thus the passengers were not disappointed. Change or Route.?It is rumored that the steamboat Oregou is to be withdrawn from the North River route, and run on the F.ait River instead. Mock Auction.?We entered ono of these'shops in Brcadway yesterday, and saw double lever, Kuglish pa tent, full jewelled watches, with chains attached, selling for $3 apiece, the buyer appeared to be going heart and soul into the watch business, as he bought everything that was set up. We are rapidly loosing all kind of pity for any one who will be so egregously foolish as to be taken in by any of these sharpers. New Method ok Collecting Debts.?We havo often heard of pertinaceous collectors who refused to be satis fied with promises, and would dun the very life out of their victims, but we yesterday saw an operation which beats every thing that we ever did see beforo. In the tipper part of Broadway we were attracted by a crowd collected around a young man, who held innis haud a pole,with a placard stuck on it,on which was inscribed? A Foou Cabhenter Waitino fob his Pav, $10 60 Due. The placard was further adorned with the representation of a hand, whereof the forefinger was, we presume, pointed in the direction ot the domicile ol those who owed him. A persevering idea, truly. Wo understand that quite an excitement was created by this proceeding of the young carpenter, and that it concluded by the police interfering and clearing the ground. How's Circus Company.?This company made a grand entree into the city yesterday, and what with bands of music, horses and carriages, and all the paraphernalia of the show, created quite an excitement. Mad Dog.?A dog supposed from his actions to bo ra bid, ran up Fulton street from the North River to Broad way, scattering fear and trembling in every direction.? What became of him we could not learn. Native American Procession.?About eight o'clock Inst ovening we met a crowd of lads carrying some ban ueis, and occasionally letting off'a lew squibs. We were at a loss to discover the object of their parading, but were informed by a bystandor.tnat it was supposed to be a procession of the Native American Party, and we pre sumed from their apparent youth that tliey were proba bly advocates of the twenty-one year qualification of voting, as the greater part of them will have to wait many years ere they attain that age. On some of the paper lanterns that they carried, they had some most fe rocious sentiments endorsed. Wo trust they will not get raliid. Imposition.?Murphy's line of omnibusses to Harlem are crowded on their return to the city in the afternoon to a very dangerons extent. The halt past five o'clock stage called the Wayne, came into the city last evening with more than forty passengers inside and out, and it was with the greatest difficulty that it was prevented from turning over, the top being literally covered with people, also the railings on the side were crowded with passengers hanging on. There were several ladies in side who were excessively alarmed, and who tried to get out, but they were so wedged in by the crowd, that they could not move. Surely some method could be found to reform this matter,as no lady suffering these in conveniences once will place herself in a position to un dergo them a second time. Circuit Court Before Judge Fdwards. Jai. F. Deptyeter et al. vs. The Sun Mutual Insurance Co.?This was an action on a marine policy effected up on a quantity of hides shipped on board the " Alfred Hammond" on her homeward voyage from a port in Spa nish Main. A motion was made for a non-suit on two grounds, first, that plaintiff has given no proof of interest which is a prerequisite to a recovery aa well as proof of loss?secondly, that there was a deviation by the vessel which worked a forfeiture of the policy : to meet the first objection plaintiff's relied upon a correspondence be tween plaintiff's attorney and the president of the com pany, who, in reply to the attorney's letter requesting " an arrangement without litigation," asked to be inform ed of the grounds of the plaintiff's claim, and reminding him that, in any event, tfre unseaworthiness of tho ves sel would be relied on?this the plaintiff' insists is a wai ver of proof of interest, and an abandonment of any other ground of defence than unseaworthiness?but this de fendants insisted was no waiver, the attorney's letter be ing an oft'er of compromise, and the secretary's letter did not therefore e.stopp the company. The second point, as to a deviation, was elaborately discuseed by the Counsel at great length, and some testimony as to the usage of trading vessels on the Main admitted. A non-suit was granted Brooklyn Intelligence. Political Dimensions.?At the democratic meeting which took place at Watson's Central House, in Brook lyn, on Wednesday evening, a portion of the " bloods" connected with the party, and belonging to the Empire club of King's county, created much confusion, by op posing the " regular" nominations for officers. The lion. Joseph Sprague was very nearly defeated by two candidates (Messrs. Ryerson and McDivitt) proposed by the young democracy; and a bold effort was made to prevent the election of Messrs. Coo 8. Downing and William M. Harris, (both " good men and true") on the ground of their being old hunkers. The gathering was so large, that platforms had to be erected outside the building, upon which various patriotic resolutions were passed, and several excellent and eloquent speeches made. Alexander Campbell, Esq , one of the most able leaders of the party, waa the chief orator. Dkaths in Bsooklth?There were fourteen deaths in Brooklyn, tor the week ending the 'Jftth inst. Of these, Ave were adults, and nine children. Kmc?There was an alarm of Are, in Brooklyn, on Wednesday evenin^caused by the accidental burning of a portion of Mr William Burdon's machine shop, in Front street.

A DxsrxasTK Arraef.?A few evenings since, an af fray of a most desperate chaiacter took place at a tavern in Myrtle avenue, during which two respectable citi zens (who had been mere spectators) were seriously in jured. Mclancholy Casualty.? Festerday afternoon, An drew Oakes, Esq., one of the Coroners of King's county, held an inquest upon the body of a youth named Tatar Olascoe, aged eleven years, who waa accidentally killed at the lumber yard of Mr. Vandervoort, corner of Bridge and John streets. The deceased is represented to have been a line intelligent boy, tho son of an engineer who is at present in Savannah, and whose afflict on will he ae- I vore indeed when he receives the sad tidings of bis child's premature and unhappy death. Two companions ol the deceased (Ann Dsnham and John Campbell) were examined at the inquest, and proved that, whilst plnying id (as is near a pile of lumber, a plank fell upon him and supposed) instantly deprived him of life Mr Richard Bsrtis waa also sworn as a witness, and he deposed that he heard a noise made hy the falling of aheap of timber, which he supposed to have been the same which caused the boy's death. Tha mother of the deceased lives in Bridge street, one door from Taliman street. The Jury returned a verdict of accidental death. The Brooklyn Ly<:suh.?Since the ereotion of this building, it has never been more densely crowded than on the occasion of Mr. Templaton'a Conceit last night.

Lewie Francis- This impor tant case was given to the jury before a crowded court, which was jammed up almost to suffocation. Mis* Steele and a large array of ladies w ere also in attend ance, and the utinoit anxiety was evinced in court. Tho grounds of defence taken for defendant were commented upon strongly and sharply by counsel who summed up for plaintitf If in Hosoii charged that the testimony, as presented, should govern the jury in its decision, as they were to consider how far the case was sustained hy it. The Court, when motion of nonsuit was mi'de forth# defence, decided that the case should be given tc the jury, there by holding that they had a right to infer .that tho plain tiff had sustained 'her action. This a reso from a principle of law. In cases of thia ct> "^acter, al although express promises are not proved, sti. 1 m the absence of such testimony the jury had a right to infer that mutual promises were made between the parties, from the circumstances of the case, for the law say a vou may infer in certain cases, although an express proini.<e may not be proved from the circumstances attending a long courtship. Ifut the jury had a right to infer (hie promise from the correspondence, the language and ex-* prestions used in the letters hy defendant. The question of nonsuit was presented on the ground of insufficiency of evidence, hut from all tho circumstances attending this correspondence the court came to the conclusion that they had a right to infer that an engagement had existed, and the law therefore would justify in finding a verdict In deciding upon this case, the first question that should present itself for consideration was, whether the partita nad been mutually engaged,"she to liim and lie to her. Now, on the one hand, they had a right to infer, from the long and continued attention on the part of the man; if she receives them, they had a right to infer that she; reciprocated, and so the law infers. The sufficiency of proof in the present case was for the consideration of the jury, who should bear in mind all the facts and cir cumstances attending tho case, and whether frem them an engagement bad existed. It seems to me that you can hardly come to the conclusion that no engagement existed, when you consider the three letters, and the language contained therein. From the language contain ed in these letters, it strikes me that he was a suitor in an honorable way to the plaintiff, down to 1840, the date of these letters. Oefendunt married in Murch last, and it is needless to go beyond 1840, in considering the facts of this case. By contining your attention to the five years that have passed lrom 1840 down to 184a, we have it in evidence'that he continued his attentions, when he bruke his promise and got married. She was not bound to tender marriago. If you come to the conclusion that he continued his attentions down to a period oi three months before he got married, he was in every respect to be considered a suitor up to this period. Now, the de fence in this case is twofold -first, that there never was a promise; next, that she never reciprocated the feeling The evidence of John Day was, that about a year ago she stated she did not intend to get married. The next witness was Catherine Day, she suid that about three or four years ago she told ner that she never intended to get married ; it this were the case it was to be presumed tbat he would discontinue his visits. But he continued his attentions according to the testimony of all, until three months before the marriage *, and it is a curious fact, that although tne elder members of the family state that they did not know it, still that all the younger members had the penetration to see into it ; and to found the belief upon it, that they were engaged, it is curious I say that the old Days did not see it. The ab sence ol the plaintiff was also put in for the defence, as a ground for the non-existence of the engagement, but the language of the letters written at this very period, would show a very con< rary state of things. It was also set up in defence that the plaintiff was not sufficiently ar dent on her part to infer that there was an engagement, but all the witnesses say he was marked in his attentions for a period of a number of years ; and if the jury come to the conclusion that he gained the affections of the plaintiff by such attentions, they wero bound to give her damages. The jury should weigh the evidence,and care fully discriminate and decide in which scale the weight was the heaviest; and if they came to the conclusion that the plaintiff was entitled to damages, they were bound in fixing the amount to take into consideration the cit cumstances of the defendant. The object of the suit was not alone compensation as for money?charac ter was also impeached, Ubd injury was in flicted, and the question they had to decide first, was there a promise; and next, was there a br. ach. The defendant certainly broke his promise hy his mar riage; but if the jury come to tho conclusion that the plaintiff has failed to prove her case, then they should find for the defendant; it on tho contrary that she has sustained her case they were bound to give a verdict in her favor. The jury retired and in a short period rendered a ver dict for plaintiff of $1000 damages and 0 cents costs. The above verdict will cause some alarm to those who have violated their "vows of constancy" at the shrine ot Cupid. Francis Andrews vs. George Jlardgravc?Action of f alse imprisonment, to recover against an officer for arresting plaintiff, who was taken with others in a lottery and gam bling house, near Peck slip, on a charge of robbing a boy of some money and a lottery policy. Sealed verdict this forenoon. Before Judge Daly Jane Smith vs James Hagan?This was an ac tion of ejectment brought against the tenant of the pre mises 70 Oliver street to test the title thereto. It appears that on the 8th of March, 1810, the undivided half of the above property was conveyed to Gerard J. B?ekinen by Sarah O. Beekaian, his mother, who conveyed to another child, a Mrs. Daniels. Subsequently U. J. Beekman filed his petition in bankruptcy and obtained a discharge. In the bankrupt's schedule of effects he set forth his equi ty of redemption in the above property, which was ad vertised to be sold by the sheriff under a fi fa, en a julges execution iu the Supreme Court, entere'd in favor ot Su rah O. Beekman against her sou, Girartl J. The proper ty having passed to the general assignee in bankruptcy, who sold the bankrupt's interest therein to the plaintiff for $1 50, under which she claims titlo. When the pro tierty was sold by the sheriff, on the judgment, it was nought by Mrs. Beekmsn and assigned t? her son, Oirard J.

At the second board an advance was realised, not only is ths quotations current early In the day, but on those of yesterday. The quotations of the second board to day show an advance on those of the first board of i per cant in Morris Oanal; in Norwich and Worcester 1} per cent; Long Island I; and .Canton 1}. It will be seen by the rapid rise in quotations for railroad stocks, that they are the favorite*. Notwithstanding the advance in those stooka within the past week, of ten or twelve per cent, the daily sales still continue large, and they occupy al most the exclusive attention of both boards. The transactions in Norwich and Worcester, nnd Long Island, Appear to be more extensive than in any other, and in these the improvement has been the largest per cent. Hurlem has hardly got startod yet, but it will come up in time. The margin for a rise in the first nam, ed railroad stocka was much greater than in Harlem which accounts in a measure for the rapid advance.
