NEW YORK HERALD. New York, Tharulay, November 0, IS4-?. Hallo of tHe Great Western. The popular Atlantic steamer, Great Western, Captain Matthews, will leave at two o'clock, this afternoon tor Liverpool, *nd het 'e"f Wl close Ht one o'clock. Owing to the deep interest manifested in Europe, at this time, in the affairs ol this continent, espe cially relative to Oregon, and the extent ol the sup plies o? food that can he obtained from the United States, we shall issue an Extra Herald at one o'clock, to contain the latest intelligence, whether of a political, commercial, or theatrical character, that we may receive from every part of the Union. This 8|*cial edition can be had at the desk, in wrappers, at iwo cents per copy. The Policy of Uuglaiid nntl France towards America. The last intelligence front Europe discloses some singular movements on the part ot England. It a|> peara that an unusual degree of activity has been manifested at the ship-yards, and that great efforts are in progress for the augmentation of the British navy A similar movement manifests itself in Prance Now, the present condition of the European world does not seem to warrant any of those active preparations ol a warlike character which appear to be in progress in England and France. And, indeed, the motive cf all these preparations is the subject of a great deal of speculation and inquiry. It has been hinted that the relations ol the United states with England justity those preparations. But th ? controversy relative to the Oregon territory does uot ui all upjiear to us to be of sufficient magnitude to c ill for these extraordinary manifestations. We hive heard from unofficial source that a magnificent plan of a convention is now maturing between the governments of France and England? a measure torced upon them in consequence ol the annexation of Texas to this country. The rapid growth of this republic, and particularly its progress towards the South and West, Mexico and California, has awa kened new feelings of alarm in the mind of eastern Europe, it is now credibly affirmed that some re cent arrangements have been entered into by Eng land, France and Spain, by which the two great naval powers will unite their forces for the purpose ot sending an expedition to Cuba, and from that point make a descent upon Mexico, with the view of reducing that republic to the domination of som" European prince, in order to prevent any further progress of the United States in that direction. Mexico w, at present, in a state particularly favor able for the successful accomplishment of such de signs as those we have described. It is distract ed and agitated by internal dissensions snd feuds. The government is utterly imbecile and helpless. The absorption ot Mexico by the United States?a power possessing all the ele ments ot strength, stability and power?appears to be inevitable. This is apparent to the statesmen ot Europe. And it is this view of the future that has stimulated that policy on the part of England and France, which begins to manifest itself in those warlike preparations to which we have just alluded Indeed, in the famous speeches of Guizot, the French Minister, this ts avowedly acknowledged. The object of the cabinets of France and England now appears to be to place on the throne of Mexi co a French prince, and thus, by the establishment of a monarchy there under their control, to inter pose an effectual barrier to the further progress of the United States in that direction. Tnts line of policy corresponds exactly with the views and sentiments put forth by the governments of France and England, and the newspaper presses of those countries in the confidence and interest of the dominant party. It is not at all likely that England would hazard her commerce with this country by an open war on account of a comparatively unproduc tive territory. Yet still, whilst allowing the Oregon question to slumber in abeyance, Eugland might promise herself indemnification and satisfaction, by in expedition of the character just indicated?con sisting of the combined tleets of England and France, meeting at Havana, and starting for the conquest of Mexico, in order to reduce that repub lic to the control of European influences. This is, we are told, absolutely the policy of France and England, and is a practical carrying out of tha' intervention in our affairs recommended and en forced bv Guizot. The Issves of the Election?The recent elec tion involved some issues ot no little importance. First, nativeisrn has been entirely demolished That faction originated in Roman Catholic secta rianism, which provoked a counter exercise of fa natical intolerance and bigotry on the part of pome of the Protestant sects It has gone through all the ph.ises of intolerance and folly. Now, however, it has at last received its quietus from the common sense and intelligence ol all parties, both whigs and locofocoe. We will hear very little hereafter of na" ti veism. The Oregon question was another issus involved in this election. It seems that those opposed to ta king possession of the whole of that territory, have been living in a barren faith without any works. All the active politicians of both parties are decided ly in favor of the maintenance of the claims of this country to the whole of Oregon. This will of course strengthen the hands of Mr. Polk, and give iresh impetus to the onward, aggressive, grasping democratic impulses of the age and the republic. The oid leaders?the superannuated hacks of party^ are in favor of a compromise on this question; bui the young, energetic, bounding, and invincible de mocracy, with hll the floating talent of the country ^nd the masses, are in favor of u rigid adherence to the bold and manly ground assumed by the Presi dent in his inaugural address. Copper at the West ?It appears by the accounts Irom D'troit, that the copper operations in the vi cinity of Lake Superior have ceased. It is supposed < that the operators have not met with their antici paled success. It is perhaps unfortunate for those who have invested their money in this sort of spe culation, that the work of " getting out ore'" should have so suddenly etopi>ed. We shall soon see. however, what effect this movement will have upon the value of the copper stocks in market " The Bible in the Schools."?Now that the ? lection is over, and the " nutives" have been fairly demolished, we trust that there will be no more dif ficulty relative to the public schools. Let the Bible be read by all who desire it, and let sectarianism and fanaticism ot every stamp?whether Catholic or Protestant?be most religiously expurgated from the management ot these invaluable seminaries of education. The Election.?There are no later returns than those given in yesterday morning's edition. The convention ticket relative to the constitution is yet in a mist; the apathy on the alteration seems to have rll at once become general; the reformers and radicals only taking active interest in its fate. Through out the State the election has been astonishingly qiust and unobtrusive. From St Dominoo.?By the schr Squires Broth ers, Capt. West, Irom Aux Cayea, we learn that 'roops were under arms at that place, waiting or ders to march against the Dominicans. Nothing had transpired, however, when Capt. W left. I hi State Convention.?This measure lias been carried, ft will give rise to some curious developments connected with negro suffrage and other matters of importance. vltLtTART Movements.?Major General Scan wornmander of the forces, arrived in the city yesier il y, and occupies apartments at the American Motel New Yore State Election?On all side* we hear ot the apathy at the election on Tuesday. The returns froin the interior, which reach us slowly, indicate this, and the figures are scarcely worth giving. . In the anti-rent districts, the anti-renters have polled a large vote, and have elected many ot their ticket. Thetr vote tn some towns is overwhelm ing In Albany city, the democratic candidate lor fi liate received 1,730 majority, while on the Assem bly ticket the highest democrat led the highest whiz lv 620 The result in the county is the election to the A.-sembly ot Harris, Watson, and Shaler? two democrats and one whig, and a majority 01 1,000 tor Vau Schoonhoven, the whig candidate tor Senator. In Schenectady the democrats have a a majority ?l 1000 j .n Some towns have changed to democracy tins year, while others have turned whig. Hudson city gives a democratic Senatorial ma jority ot 30 The Convention ouestion excited but little inter est, and the vote polled relative to it appears to be a reduced one every where ... The returns are much scattered, but we will throw them into some shape to-morrow, Never before were there so many (iitl'erent tickets brouglit into one contest in this State. Sporting Intelligence* The Hcbule Races oven the Beacon Course, Ie* tekday?Most Kkarfil Accidents?The attendance was rather limited far the sport promised. The weather was cool?great and overcoats ol every description we o in great requisition, with collars turned up, and hunckei chiefs in addition, were plentifully displayed. 1 he track was in pretty good order attertho rain of the previous two days. The betting on the ground was Hops against any other named animal; 6 to 4 on the field, the samo figure on the Butter against Hops-taken. 1 ka Canada ..gainst the field were spoken of, but no business done T he first hurdle was near the draw-gate coming in the second a few yards below the iudgas' aland; the third near the quarter mile pole, aud the lourth a little hex ond the hull mile The ?port promised wan a Hurdle Race lc mile heats, for a purse of $350, $50 to second host hor?e, five hurdles to a heat, 4 leet high, catch weights.

Black Douglass." The "Quebec Bufler" was said to he thoroughbred, but such n ?' thorough bred" seldem seen so tar as appearance goes. "Snip" looked well, and upon showing, became a favorite with many. The word was eventually given, and they came for ward in galUut style. Hops leading the way at a rattling pace, more like lor a quartei race than any thing else, closely followed by Americus?they breasted the judges stand, Hops some twenty yards in front, going at a most tremendous speed, and he ran almost up to the second hurdle eie he was prepared for the leap ; but he attempt ed it, and the consequence was he struck it, making a complete summerset, with his rider undermost, with bis head doubled under liim; where the poor lellow lay in sensible, when Americus, who was close on his wake, unavoidably trod upon his head and shoulder ir. passing him. The others continued their course onward, but our reporters attention was diawn to the fallen indivi dual, so that he lost all lurther progress of the horses | until they reached the judges' stand, where Americus led. Butler a few yards behind, followed closely by Black Douglas-Snip tailed oil'. The mile was done in'Jm.34s. The rider ol Hops was quickly assisted by several per | sons present. When taken up 'he was quite insensible, and the general impression was that his neck was broken, lie was conveyed into a room beueath the club stand, and a medical gentleman of well known celebrity in this city, promptly attended him. After ascertaining the nature of his disaster, he bled him, but it was some time ere the blood flowed, and then only about eight ounces could be obtained, which appeared to give some relief, and all were in hopes that the affair was not of such a dangerous character as was antioipated. Shortly after, Mr. Browning's family physician came to his as sistance, and the medical gentleman, formerly alluded to, and to whom every praise ought to be awarded for bis prompt and energetic endeavors, resigned the unfor tunate man, at the same tune giving up to tho other a valuable diamond pin. which Mr. Browning wore in his shirt, and entrusted to lum lor sufe keeping. As .soon as this was known, preparations were made for the second heat. Snip was withdrawn ; and Oscar Sweetland mounted Hops, who appeared to be little or j none the worse for the accident. He led the wny in fine tyle, but not at such a sjieed as in the previous beat?he cleared his first and second hurdles most beautifully, Americus close on his wake : Buffer and black Douglass close upon liim. At the third hurdle, Hops went over cleverly ; not so Americus, both horse and ridor came down, but not with such learlul consequences as in the lormer heHt, although the rider was severely stunned, but bis homo escaped striking hun in his tali?the other animals pursued their course. Bufler round the top made gooa play,and lessened the space between himself and Hops considerably, but with no beneficial effect? eventually Hops led home some dozen lengths in front in -J-.3S, followed by Black Douglass and the Bufler, Americus anywhere. The lider ol Americus was severely bruised by his fall, but alter some little time, was able, with the assis tence of a couple of friends, to walk to the club stand, and soon after was convey ed home in a carriage. It was now ascertained that Mr Browning, the rider of Hops in the first heat, was more seriously injured than was anti cipated indeed that bis life was despaired of. As soon as this was know n, the judges, with good and proper leeluig, decided no moie proceedings should tske place as re jiected the race, and announced the tame ami 1 consideiable approbation Irom those present. Thus ended this unlortunate affair. Mr Browning was conveyed in a state of insensibility to a house adjoining the course, occupied by Mr. Moatague, where every at tention w as paid to him by the residents, his medical at tendant, and otners. At nine o'clock last evening, we received account that he was then alive?but was not expected to survive more than an hour or two after wards. The Brooklyn Star Club close their aeaeon with a game tint day, on their ground in the Myrtle avenue.?

I ?A very interest mg match cornea off to morrow between the celebrated horses Meirow and Hector, which is exciting particular t attention in the sporting world ; the well known powers of these two animals, makes many think that it will be one of the best trots of the season. The betting is about 6 to 3 on Moscow j 4 to 1 is taken that a mile is perfoim ed by Hector in 2m 30s ; even betting that all the miles are done under 2m 35s.

Leopold nr. .Mum?His Co.vctaT at the Tabic*."-a. ols, To-morrow Etmim.?This great artist will give hi* first Concert at tho Tabernacle, to-morrow oveuicg, when wo expect to witness an universal rush of our music loving inhabitants. No artist has ever excited such an unanimous sensation as the lion-pianist, which alone speaks volumes in his favor, for this is a strong proof that his talent is of that extraordinary kind, before which,envy .prejudice and jealousy hide their green-eyed faces with shame; a talent,which truly can dely criticism, for it is sure that it must end in unqualified and enthusi' astical praise. Since the day of his arrival, his residence has literally been besieged by crowds of musicians and many of our most distinguished citizens, who ail are anxious to pay their respects and " beard the lion in his very den." All the musical stars, who came to our shores to shine lor a while, came as .business men, who wanted to make hay?we mean dollars?whilst theyshone; not so De Meyer, who maintained, likewise in America, the elevated character of an artist of the veiy highest order which he bore in Europe?an artist, with whom applause is more than geld and silver. This is gratifying, tor it clearly proves that genius united to straightforwardness and true simplicity, of manners?not an affected one, which many are inclined to don, like a cloak in rainy weather, when they set their feet on our republican shores?meet with their well earned recompense from our generous citizens. Oe Meyer hail no reason to com plain ofcliquti?French, English or German; he knows of one ciiyue only, the clique of his ardent admirers, which comprises everybody who has had u.i opportunity of hearing him. If we look at his career, we must confess that it is a most extraordinary one. First, we find him a simple amateur,who repaired to his piano to relax himself from the dry study of the jut Roinanum and jut civile. He was courted by the aristocracy ol Vienna, one of whom he was by birth. The connections of his father, who had risen merely by LisJtalenU to the high dignity ofaCouu cillor of State?no small proof of superiority in au abso lute monarchy?insured him u snug berth in one of the many cabins of the Austrian mammoth ship, when death earned him away and left the young Leopold thrown on his own resources. Family considerations, which during the life-time of his father had to be taken into account, were thrown aside with his law books : the sacred lire, that till now clandestinely shone in his breast, burstjforth in a bright and merrv blaze; he packed un his ntopes, took leave of his friends and school-fellows, and following a strange fancy, inquired of the door-keeper at the Wienertlior the shortest roa 1 to St. Petershurgh. Making the best he could of tho the information;thus given, he set out on his journey, carrying in one hand " his bundle," and in the other a banner with the motto : " Jlide-tni et le Piano t'aid-m, and singing snatches of those wild and fantastical melo dies which row have matured into the " Marcho Mare caine," the " Danse du Serail," &c., he arrived at tho iron-clad gates of the ultima Thule of civilized Europe. The first sight that greeted his eyes was a poor Pole Who received tlio Knout lor having dared to wish to see his country free ; the second, an Imperial Ukase, sending a whole village to Siberia for disliking the Itussian lan guage, and the third a Cossack frozen to death after a night watch in bis sentinel box. in the beginning he felt rather uncomfortable at the practical knowledge he thus got of " Russia and the Russians," and his thoughts involuntarily run back towards the Mesh-pots of Vienna, Strauss and Launer and the fried chickens ?? the Sperl. But an empty purse, which rendered imme diate return an Utopia, and his never failing buoyant temper, drove those black thoughts away, and he en tered the Russian capital with an elastic, step. Here t> studied in retirement, till his great talent dragged him into the gildeJ salons of the autocrat and the autocra cy. The enthusiasm which lus appearance culled iorth, w as so great, that Schiutyt and the Knout were forgotten, and Nicholas the First promised to send the next hatch of conspirators to Kamtchatka instead ol Siberia. The secret cronique of St. Peteisburgh even whispered, tha* in the joy ot his heart, the Emperor of all the Russias graciously condescended to write an autograph letter tu Abdul in which he allowed him to remain Sultan of all the Turkeys for a little while longer. Oe Meyer remained in Russia seven years, and he gave concerts in all the principal cities of the empire with unbounded applause ; hut the rest of Europe knew very little of him, for he had not yet appeared in public in any oi the great musical cities, as Vienna, Paris, and London. Me, therefore, leit Russia to visit those cities, ami yielding again to a whim, he resolved first going to Constantinople, ami there he went. Hardly arrived in old isyzany, .he received an invitation to play before the l Sultan, and we find a very graphic account of his re cepliou and playing in the Court Journal of that place, writteu in the language of tho Koran, which we trans late into Christian tongue lor the benefit of tho Ameri- 1 can reader. Leopold tie >ieyer was received by Ki/.a, a i'asha ol atrabilious temperament, (a wine bibber tub rota) who, after forcing bun to make fiity prostrations, allowed lnni to stand upright on his teet, till be was wanted by the 8 Itan. By -aad-by the Sultan wanted him, and De Meyer was admittod into the presence of hiin of all the Tuikeys, where he found a grand pinna forte, which lli laat (a.jovial kind of Pasha) had confiscated from a Jew whom he had recently bow-strung. The Sultan imme diately asked for the " Battle of Prague " which the pi anist not knowing, he is said to have received 60 blows upon the soles of his feet. Being permitted to get up again, the sole-stricken pianist was asked by Riza, (the atrabilious Pasha) for '? God Save the King,'' upon which Meyer, (who had forgotten it, if he ever knew it) at a hint from the Austrian Ambassador, who acted on the occasion as interpreter, played somo variations on a Ja panese theme, which Donizetti had stolen into his Anna Bolena. The Sultan, none the wiser, was enchanted but not being able to see the fingers of l)e Meyer, wa rcmoved, in his arm chair, I rom off his usual perch, to a place near the piano, and demanded ef the pianist a com position of his own De Meyer played one of the most favorite airs of the Sultan, who was thunderstruck, and asked the Austrian Ambassador how it came that De Meyer was acquainted with his favorite air. The Am bassador. not knowing, asked Riza, (the atrabilious Pa sha) who, not knowing, asked Hiiaat, (the jovial Pasha.) who, not knowing, asked Begler, (the fat Pasha) who. not knowing, asked ouo of the mutes, who, not know ing, received fifty blows on the soles ol lus feet?the ud- I niiiiisfcring of the first ol which made De Meyer jump j in his chair. At last, the Sultan of all the Tut key* | thought to ask the question himself in Santcrit,which lie did. De Meyer, not comprehending, thought that pei- , haps his highness was expressing his admiration of 111.. I laying, and smiled serenely-- worn eat his highness j laughed immoderately?which made the Austrian Am bassador laugh immoderately - which caused Riza, the j atrabilious I'asha,to laugh immoderately ? which litough I about that, the jovial Pasha, laughed immoderate ly?which was followed by Begiei, the lat Pasha, laugh ing immoderately?which caused one of the eu ' nucha to laugh immoderately-which ended in his ic- , reiving sixty blows on the sole of Ins foot ?which mailt Leopold de Sleyer jump in his chair again alter which j he was allowed to depart. From Constantinople ho went to Vienna, where he I created a perfect furor: he had the honor ol playing be fore flic Kmperor, and in spite of the intrigues of I'riuce Dietrich, tein, who-e illegitimre son Thai berg is, h*- j was made Pianist of the Cuurt. Me repaired to London, | where he completely floored Thalberg, who left the I metropolis, after having twit e play e f buiore '"a miserly account of empty benches.''and at the close of the ue, son, tie appeared in Paris for the first time in the CAam; ? Klytets, at a conceit given hy Hector Berlioz. When p was announced that he was going to | lay in a locality capable of holding ten thousun I people, everybody look ed incredulous-, but the astonishment of the public can easior be imagined than described, alter he hud gone through his Marche Marocaine Me gave crowded con certs without any assistance, in which lie alone perform ed eight pieces, the majority ol which were encored Loaded with louis d'or and laurels, he returned to Lou don, where he played one hundred and twenty time* du ring the season, and tho sensation lie produced at his se cond visit,,hy tar surpassed that of his first, for Meyei is one of thoso extraordinary and oiiginal artists, who through the novelty ol their execution, startle an au dience which wants time to recover.

Horr Alexander, by his magic wand, has trans- , formed Niblo's into a very temple oi enchantment, an l as we sat staring there with our eyes almost out ol our head with astonishment, the old itoriei which we u" read in the Arabian Nighti ol the wonderful things per formed by the genii and fairies, were all brought u;> before us, ami now appeared no longer a Ireak of the imagination, but an absolute reality. Time, space, an matter, all seemed to be annihilated by the wonderful German, who stood belore u*. And yet, Herr Alexander makes none of the claims which the jugglers who jiavo humbugged the people of this country commonly do. To kis deep reseatcbes into the sciences of pneumatic ., chemistry, and optics, he add. a lightning-like quick ues. ol hand, which is almost incredible. Heir Alexander is no common man?no juggler?no cna - la tan?but a man of intellect and science. 1 ??

Mon sieur Phillipp, Miss Louisa Forest, the talented gunseusr from the Southern theatres, and Senor Carrere, the deli neator of ancient sculptures, make up the bill. A? e ven ing spent in witnessing this exhibition, will more tha repay in pleasure for time and expense.

These latest of the latter day philosophers held a J meeting last evening at Croton Hall Ah they are j now regularly organized, and have taken their stand I as a party in politics, we, as faithful journalists and { chroniclers of the movements of the age, shall watch | their motions and report their progress, for the edi- j fieatiou of the readers of this paper. After the ap pointment of officers, a Mr. Douglass, of Pittsburg j addressed the meeting in a speech which embraced j the principles of the new party, of which we give a sketch taken by our reporter. Mr. Douglass stated, that the aristocracy in making rapid strides over the country, and unless it ho arrested j the fate ol'the country is sealed. We have ne said, a aristocracy, a manufacturing Aristocracy, and a landed ari.tociacy, composed ol coriauutions like the Ohio Lifo and Trust Company, who aie daily getting into their capacioue grasp the most valuable of our wes tern lands. If this aristocracy bo not arrested, the Unit ed States will, in fifty years,be as complete an aristocra tic country as any in the world. He thinks the principles ol the National Reformers, if they could be carried out, are the only means of arresting the evil, and -ec.urii'g to the United States a democracy lor all luturc iime, and that a landed democracy, which would be as permanent as the eternal hills, and so strong that it could hold in the hollow of its hand all other interests and make them subservient to it. These principles are. first, that all traffic in the government lands should cease i that the fee simple of those lands ?shall be vested in the government, or in the millions, fui our government is the millions ; that tho individuals ol those millions shall have the right of occupancy of those lands, in specified quantities, say 160 acres, equality in respect to quality to exist. Let us look ahead, said Mr. leual.'ss, and we will see this country stretching to the Pacific?W? Pacific?we will sea it embracing Oregon and Texas, and anada and Newfoundland, and in process of time our population will he scattered over all these countries and increasing,and there may not be land enough to give to ?ach individual 160 acres, hut the land being vested in the government, the government will have the right nflegis. 'ating upon it, and those 160 acie lot* can be divided into -10 acre lots,and so the older we grow the more democratic we grow. Vow, if we ran only carry out this idea, what will the crowned heads of Europe, who have for veara and years been prophecying the downfall of this republic through the instrumentality of an arts tocracy ?ay I (Loud applause.) Why, they will say that this great country, through the means of a little hand of national reformers arc getting more powerful, and at the same timo more democratic every day, and their subjects catching the infection they will feel their thrones shake. Aside from thiR movement I look into the future with horror. I see that unless the principles of the relormer* are carried out. all the hloon that has been spilt at Lexington and Bunker Hill, ami other places in the revolutionary war, whs shed in vain, Decause we will end in an aristocracy. It is so written in the hook of fate, and no man can help seeing it. Mr. Douglass in conclusion recommended anoiganuation of the working classes in New York, aud that then other places would soon join in the movement. A collection was then made to help defraying the ex penses of the election, and the meeting adjourned. Electrical Telkuraph.?Messrs. Stearns and White, ot this city, have the contract for finishing the caps for thoTelegraphi ompanv between,this city and Rochester, and there is a probability that they will fur nish the balance for the line Irom Rochester to Albany The number required between Iliilhilo and Rochester is 1,766 ; and between Buffalo and Albany about 10,000. - They nie furnished with four pins each, one coat ol black paint, and a mortice all complete for putting upon tho post*?at SI cents a piece, being j cent les* thnn any other proposal made.

Hack*, Cam. a*d Omnibusses.?Below we give the number of hack*, calm and omnlbusses in this city Hack* '104 Cabi 'AW Omnlbusses '139 Making, in all, nix hundred and ninety-seven public con veyances, by which our citizens are ridden about 'The owners of these vehicles are obliged anuutilly to renew their licenses, which bring in a considerable revenue to the city. Formerly, a large number of hacks and cabs were itinning without any license; but since the ap pointment of John Lowe, us Hack Inspector, these have decreased, until now there are but a very few of this description. ? The proprietors of the omnlbusses are us follows : - Sloruni U Reynolds 64 Palmer h Peters jfl Hatfield Si Bertine 44 Kipp & Brown... 34 J. Murphy he Co .'13 Lent & Andrews ,30 '139 These omnibuases are, at the same time, u benefit and a disadvantage?a blessing and a curse. It is certainly very convenient in a rainy day or evening, or when ono is wearied with the exerxious of busiuess, to jump into an omnibus, and lor sixpence be set down almost ut his own door. On the otlier baud it is decidedly unpleasant in a ruiny day or evening, to stand on the walk, waiting for a chance to cut in between the omnlbusses that am crossing in all directions, and then running a great risk #f losing life or limb. By this means, however, ou? ha-, a tine opportunity to leurn practical geomatry and tri gonometry. Such a cutting of smos, co-sines, arcs ami tangents, as it is necessary to describe in crossing Broadway, is nowhere else to he found. Strong efforts are being made to banish the omnibusses from Broad way. The sooner done the better. ArrxABAMcE or the Burnt District.?This part of the city presents a curious appearance. Some seven or eight bundled men are employed in the difiarent branches of rebuilding. The streets are 'blocked up with piles of stone, bricks, mortar and lumber, and these, in addition to the mud, which lies piled up inn nice consistency of about a foot in depth, reuder naviga tion in that region rather dangerous and uncertsin .Scat tered over the district are little shanties,wherethe delect able compounds passing under the names of brandy gin, &?.. which are usually kept at such places, are supplied to the workmen at the rate of three cents per glass. An animated scene presents itself here at any time from sunrise to sunset. The busy knocking of several hun dred hammers and trowels, mingle* with the cheerful song of the laborer, and forms a melody not unpieasaut to the ear of one who views honest and useful industry as honorable. There are now being erected in the burnt district the following number of buildings Broad street, east side 33 " west side 31 Beavor street, north side 10 " south side New street 30 Exchange Place 3 Stone street 6 Broadway. 16 Total 113 There will be many improvements made in this dis trict. Broad street is to be raised, and a large sewer is being dug to go from Wall street to the foot of Broad. When the buildings are completed, .his will he one of the handsomest portions of the city. The buildings are all of brick, most of them three or four stories in height, and are built with a view to beauty as well as stability. Many . f them are built entirely fire-proof with iron shut ters and doors.

Two respectable females were thus thrown on their faces end somewhat injured by them Their proceedings were put a stop to by a policeman who took the offenders into custody. Assault with a Knife.?A man named John Brown was arrested and detained to answer for assaulting Christen berg Ilysenbergwith a knife. The accused was held to answer for the offence. National Association or Inventors. An idea having gone abroad that thii important Socie ty was commenced in hostility to the present popular Commissioner of Patents, itbocomesour duty to correct it. Toe absurdity of this notion will appear from the fact that the first movement in this enterprise was com menced as long ago as 1840?before Mr. Burke was ap pointed. At that time there were gentlemen Irom eight different States, at a meeting at the otHce of the writer, and he then suggested the establishment ot a permanent association of Inventors. A number of names were col lected by him, and sent on to Professor Espy, at Wash ington, and amongst others, that of Professor Morse is remembered. The design was to have all inventors vis iting the Capital, to subscribe; but the great body of patentees seemed then not ready to act promptly on the subject. After long consideration, however, the time at last appears to have arrived; but if the writer can judge of the general feeling at the late Convention of Inven tors, nothing was farther from their thoughts than any design to fabricate an engine of a destructive character against Mr. Burke. But there were some few?and very few they were?who felt inclined to censure the servant sf the laws, instead of the laws, which the majoiity thought required amendments. The only destructive contrivance thought of, was a "hairsplitting machine," as reported from a worthy Doctor. Whatever other de structive contrivances were exhibited, they were most evident against the constructive portion ol the associa tion who desired to commence immediately to build up an Inventors' Association. The destruetives?and there i were few of them?belonged to a clique who meant to "rule or ruin,"for no institution calculated to mako a Paradise, if possible, can be proposed, without giving notice, also, to some serpent to crawl in and poison the whole. But the creating spirit is, in general, superior to the destroying; and the strong probability now exists, that something effectual will be done, in which the pre sent honorable Commissioner of Patents will unite a? cordially as any members of the Association. Indeed, i wo have indirectly bis promise to this effect, and so had I before the assembling of the Convention. This should be stated in justice to all parties I CLINTON ROOSEVELT. j Disastrous Steamboat Collision?Twenty IjIvbs Lost.?We gave an account yesterday of h disastrous steamboat accident at the Mouth, resulting in the loss of life, and to-day we have to record a more melancholy one on the Western waters. The Louiivillt Journal of Thursday contains the only particulars which have reached us. From passengers on the steam boat Mail, which arrived here fast night, we learn that the i team boat Plymouth, bound to St. Louis, with a large number of passengers, was run into try the Lady Madison, near Shawneetown, on Monday night, which caused the P. to sink immediately to her boiler deck.? None of the cabin passengers were lost, but it is sup posed that twenty dock passengers, if riot more, wore drowned. A hole was immediately cut through the cabin floor, and several of the passengers, who had managed to keep out of the water by getting on, boxes, ?c., were thus rescued. The boat, it is said, will bo a totsl loss. Her machinery will probably bo saved. We also learn that a passenger on the Mail, who was insane, jumped overboard and was drowned. Resistance to Locomotives?The most nume rous clasn of accidents to locomotive trains, are those which ariso from the intrusion of cattle on railroads These are usually in this Mtatc, and should be always fenced and protected at road crossings by cattle guards. These precautions do not effectually protect them at the streets, where cattle are allowed to stray in the puhljr roads. The papers of yesterday relate two accidents ot ire. The locomotive on the downward freight this nsture. train ol the Western llallroed, at Westfleld, on Friday evening last, encountered an ox, which was killed, and the engine, with tour of the cars, was thrown from the track, and nrecipated from the embankment, and the cars Jch broken. were much broken. On the Fitcbburvh Itailroad, at Leominster, a faw days since, a large buil, observing the approach of the passenger train, put himself in an atti tude of resistance, but he was speedily overcome, and crushed by the engine. The baggage car and one of the passenger cars were thrown from the track, without other injuryithan a short delay ?Soften .Adv., Iftv. 8. ? Brooklyn Intelligence.

This was owing to an orror made by one of the inspectors upon whom we made a re quisition for the returns, who, instead of taking Hand lord's supposed supremacy over Bradish, gave us what he then made to he the majority over the other Senato rial candidates. We are promised to-morrow, by James H. Cornwall, Esqr., the efticient and popular cletk of the Common Council, a complete official statement of the whole returns, in the mean time, it muy not be impro per to stute that only eighteen person' in the entire county could be found to vote to themselves farms, aod but the sorry number of twenty abolitionists veutuied to deposit their votes. The native party mustered to the number of seven hundred and sixty-three. Melancholy Accident and Miraculous Escape.? On Tuesdax afternoon, a little h?y. aged four years, son of Mrs. Budden, a widow ladyi residing at the corner of Henry and Middagh street, accidentally fell from the third story window of the house into the street. Strange to say, the child escaped without a single bone being broken, and with but little internal injury. Willi a Ms mi'no Police On Tuesday night, at a late hour, officer Gideon C. Austin arrested a man named John Haley, a stone-cutter, on a charge of attempting to set lire to the house of Patrick Flaherty, in First street, cor ner oi North seventh No other cause is assigned tor so heinous an act than a slight quarrel which had taken place between the parties. The accused committed a dosperate assault upon Mr. Austin with a club when he went to take him into custody. A charge was preferred against a matter mason, a re sident of Brooklyn, by his wife, for abandonment and assault. She made nttldavit that her husband had lived separate from her for upwards of three years, and had contributed scarcely any thing to the support of herself aad child. In addition to this, she deposed that he was living with .another female by whom lie has two or three children, and that on a recent occasion of making complaint to him on the subject of his bad behavior, he committed an assault and battery upon her. Justice Cole issued a warrant against hiir, which was placed in the hands of officer Gee for execution. Brooklyn Police.?James H Swain preferred a com plaint of assault against Human N. Scranton, Stephen J. Herriman, and Henry Evan* ; which charge seemed to have grown out of an attempt of tho defendants to in* duce Swain to pay them some money, and dtiriag which one of them laid his baud upon the complainant. The magistrate dismissed the complaint as frivolous. John Jones was committed to prison, in delault of giv ing hail in tho sum of $A00, to answer at the next court of Oyer and Terminer, a complaint made against him by his wife, for threatening her with violence. Sacbed Concert.?A Concert was given at St. Ann's Church on Tuesday evening, and altnough there were some attractions which should have drawn together e large audience, the performance was vory indifferently attended. The chief feature on the occasion was the appearance of Miss Julia Nortliull, a young lady possess ing abilities of a high order as a vocalist. L. I. Telegrai'h.?Tho wires of tho telegraph wero put up on Tuesday morning through Atlantic and Fur man streets to the Fulton ferry, so that there is now a continuous talking-rod from Brooklyn to Coney Island. The wire is said to lie somewhat differently "prepared from that on other telegraphs, and greatly improved. It is wound with tarred thread, which prevents the rain or ice, which forms abound it in tho winter time, from at all destroying the power of the fluid. The end of the wire is now* temporarily fasteued to the Fulton furry house, and the question is, how it shall be carried Mcross the river (The project seems to huve been abandoned of carry ing it uuder.water. The telegraph company will lor the present huve to make their station at the Brooklyn terry dock, and use a semaphore telegraph to forward their in telligence to Wall street. Board of SuvKiivisons.?This Board will meet at the County Jail to-day, when it is probable they will entor into some arrangement for appointing a perm incut Clerk in the place of Joremiah I-ott, Esq deceased, and also lesolve upon measures lor the immediate building of an additional wing tu the prison, to be used as a work house, Board of Education.?A full quorum of the members of this Board met at tho Municipal Court Room on Tues day, and passed various resolutions for the payment of divers account" presorted for talaiirt, Ol teacher', And articles furnished to tho public schools.

Yesterday morning, at sunrise, as one ol the carriages ot the Menagerie, containing the Lion, Punther, Tiger, Ac., was in the act of starting for Petersburg, drawn by tour horses, one of the horses took inght and attempted to run : this excited the lion, who roared from alarm, upon ? w Inch the whole team dashed at full speed down Locust Alley, not much more than wile enough for tie panage of the car. The driver ou his box, displayed great pre sence of mind, and at the iutei section ol the Alley Wlvll Main street, succeeded in directing tne horses <io*ti Main street, and a lew doors above the Bell Parern, in turning them ujion the side-walk ; the wheels comiug in contact with the posts planted along the sidewalk, smashed three of tliern, when Anally one of the wheel* was knocked off from the axle the driver pitched into the street and seriously hurt,and the wagen upset; the lore wneels being by this means detached, the horses proceed ed furiously until they were stopped by obstacles in the street. One of them was mucli injured It was iortu nute that an accident, wnich might have proved tragical, occurred early, when the streets were compaia'i little thronged, And it is even more fortunate that the great strength of the cage resisted the violent concus sion, and prevented the letting loose ot the prisoner* upon the towu ; the consequences of such a result can not easily be conjectured. The dignity of the lioa was much offended liy the escapade, and he gave vent to hi* rage and terror in an impassioned roar. None of the beasts,we believe,were injured by the overthrow,a signal eseape for them as wall as the public and the proprietors. A more amusing scene occurred with one of the ele phants in fording James River on Sunday The tide being up and the water higher than when she crossed lie tore, she refused upon reaching the chanuel to prooeed any farther, resisting the caresses and blows of her rider. At last, resenting his importunity, she laid down inthe river, carrying lum under, and concealing him some time from tho view of an immense multitude, who were the amused, but before it concluded, the atatmed, spectators of the scene. But he was a good swimmer, and extricating himself, emerged and swam up stream to the Bridge. Her mate, the other elephaut, fin enor mous beast weighing within a frac'iou of 10,000 lbs.) now coming up, she recovered her good humor, and pro ceeded quietly on her way.? Richmond W7ug, Nov. J. War of the Abolitionists.?A couple of wagon load ot travellers put up at the Mansion House on Thursday evening last, ou their way to St. Louis See ing so many strangers together in open wagons, curiosi ty, of course, wished to know their whereabouts and wherefor. Whereupon, from inlormation iiidoeotly obtained, it seems that ostensible business was, that tliey ''had been at a convention at Sparta, and that they weie all clergymen, (IB in number) of what ehureh, ia not said - that they reside in different places in Ohio and North Illinois. This is all good, provided this, and tois only, is a fact But, from tne lact that they made no en quiry about nay ol our ministers, or churches, or any thing thereto, it seamed that they at least had no sympa thy or identity with auy of our clcigymen or churches. It is currently said on tue streets, wuh how miioli truth we presume not to say. that they were ou an abolition ciusade, from Ohio to South Illinois, Sparta paiticularly. That an abolition nucleus is collecting there, about Sparta, that will throw its halo over South Illinois.? Now, we should be pained to know that either of these were true. The people ol Randolph ought to have more judgment lhan fo admit such u formation.
