NEW YORK HERALD. New York, Turnluy, November 11. IS45. Opening of Coiigre**?'foiii^l'inlloH ngnlnst Mr. Folk'* Administration. In the year 7WW H C., or nearly ten thousand years ago, according 10 the ancient chronicles ol iltndosiau. written in the Sanscrit character, there was an expedition projected from one of the princi pal ports of ilindostan, to sml round the world, und ascertain w'lether it was spherical or not, and whether there were Hny new countries not yet known to the civilization of that early |w?riod of so ciety. A very liue ship was built, tilted up in the most magnificent style, and manned and equipped 11 the most complete order, according to the skill in the arts in those early days. Every thing was ready for the great expedition around the world? the great voyage of discovery?that was to settle and determine u variety of matters, then only sur mised by the tarans of Hindustan. One day the vessel sailed oui of port on an ex|H>rimentiil trial* and there was a great deal of difficulty sprung up suddeulv during this experimental trip, between the captain and certain portions of the crew, relative to the management of the rudder, und particularly re specting the tiller by which the rudder is con trolled Ths captain insisted that he could not navigate the vessel round the world, and en counter the various dangers that he expected to meet, unless he had full authority over that little instrument belonging to the vessel which was called the tiller, and which controls the rudder, that in its turn directs the movements of the ship. Seve ral of the younger officers and certain portions of the crew, who were not then broke in to the disci pline ol modern times on shipboard, and who had never been under such a flag as that of the United States, were determined that there should be no til ler to the helm, and thut the captain should have no control whatever over the vessel Whilst this dis pute went on, the beautiful vessel, covered with the whitest and most imposing canvass, sailing gallantly before the wind, mounting proudly over the waves, and giving every indication of capability to sai' round the earth, to determine whether it was spheri cal or not, a storm suddenly arose, and in the midst of the quarrel about the tiller, the vessel went ashore on the rocks, and in a short time went to pieces. A large porti< n of the crew were engulphed in the breakers,and the captain and a tew of the mid shipmen or mates only escaped. Such is the [>osition of the present administration of the United States government at the opening of Congress. Mr. Polk has been elected to fill one of the highest posts in the civilized world? the Presidency of the United States?a na tion which takes the lead of every other country in the great progress of humanity and civilization,*on the face of 'his mighty globe. He is now in the very crisis of his destiny. In a few weeks Congress meets, and immediately there after he presents a message to that tiody, developing his policy?his measures?and his views, which nre to receive the sanction of rh? representatives of the nation, or to he condemned by them. Vet, although he was elected by a plurality of the people of this country, there are strange indications coming to us from all points of the compass, and from every sec tion of the country, that a vast combination is ma turing to break down his administration in its very inception?in its very bud. The first effort will be made on the question of public printer?an isolated question?an inferior point?a small affair, hardly equal to that of the title to the helm of the vessel which was wrecked according to the story which we have already given, on the coast of Hindostan, nearly ten thousand years ago, according to the an cient chronicles of the East Yet things have taken such a shape, and political matters have been brought to such a crisis, that if Mr. Polk's printer to Congress, we mean Mr. Ritchie, should be de feated by a combination of his own flpjarent friends, hut really secret foes, with the regular opposition, we have no doubt that the administration will be weakened and enervated for its remaining term of office, so as to be utterly inefficient to give dignity and character to the government of the country for years to come. ^Let us look at the elements which are matur.ng in various parts of the country, in order to weaken the influence-and power of Mr. Polk in nis administer- , ing the aflairs ot government. He has taken his 1 position on the Oregon question?on the tariff?and ' several other public measures, some of which have given great umbrage to the financial and commer cial interests A vast combination is forming at this time in the large Atlantic cities, between the financial interests?the stock-jobbing cliques -the ! banking coteries?a combination between these and ihe discontented of the democratic party, whieh , will first be developed by an opposition and proba bly a defeat of Mr. Ritchie as public printer. The various old cliques of the democratic party, whose leaders were disappointed and chagrined that Mr. Polk, a new man, should be nominated and elected to the Presidency, and further, that he should bring in new men to assist him in administering the af fairs of the government, have all joined to bnng about this singular state ol things, so menacing to the peace and quiet of his administration. And now availing themselves of these discontents in the de mocratic party, we see Mr. Webster, on the'part of tlie whigs and others, for stock-jobbing purposes, al' Combining to produce the result so much desired, /and that is, the defeat of Mr. Polk and his adminis tration, at the commencement of the session of Congress. The combination now forming between the whig opposition Htid the discontented democracy of the various cliques, resembles, very much, that combi nation of influences which was formed in the years 1829-'30, to control and put down the administration ol General Juckson, and when a series of contests, and controversies, and internal difficulties were fo mented and invigorated by the whig opposition, un til there was a general appeal to the country, in 1832, when General Jackson's policy and measures were supported and approved. The same elements may be stud to be now at work throughout the country, and are producing a combination to attack the ad ministration of Mr. Polk, at the very threshhold ot his course. The first attack will be made on Mr. Ritchie, who is Mr. Polk's candidate for public printer. It that be successful, they will proceed fur ther to destroy the whole influence and jsiwer of his administration for the next three years, and lay the foundation of a complete revolution in the |>qli cy and political comjdexion of the government. I Such is the jiosition of things now existing at tnis moment, within two or three weeks of the opening of Congress. But the elements which we have only vaguely described, will be more matured and devel oped in a few weeks, and we shall then be able to see more distinctly what the result of this singular routes! will be. There can be no doubt that Mr. l'?lk and his administration, and all his friends must take bold, and ojien, and positive ground on all those public measures which will ultimately receive the approbation of the American |>eople South, East and West. This is his only safeguard, and this,we perceive, he is about to tske. Tbm Mkmihis Convention.?Mr. Calhoun is on I is way to this important Convention of delegates horn all the Western, South-Western and Southern States, for the |Htrpose of deliberating on measures of great public importance?railroads, the tariff, and so on. But it will have also a political bearing, and may exert great influence on the proceedings of next i ongress. The delegates will be in lavor of Texas annexation, nnd some expression of opinion may be made on the subject of Oregon, hut what it will |* we cannot tell. A counter conveniion ol a different character is to lie held at Hollidaysburgh, Pennsylvania, consist ing of delegates from the Western, North-Western, Eastern and Middle States. This will he a high-la rut body. Both conventions are only indicative of public opinion, and the restlessness of public men Pit both sides Mork Fanaticism.?The Rev. Mr. Kirk, of Eos ton, has been endeavoring lo light up the fires of per sec tion in a discourse delivered on last Sunday in this city, at Dr. Skinner's church, in Mercer street. In it he represented the Catholic religion in the inost revolting light, and its heads as murderers, adulter ers, and all that sort of thing. There is na doubt thai in the long course of ages, during the last fif teen hundred years, the church of Rome, in the per son of its priests and clergy, has been guilty of a great many enormities, and that crimes have been committed under th? cloak of religion of such a cha racter as to disgrace even the dark ages of the world. But the same may be said of every sect.? Even the patriarchs and prophets, it we go as far back as the time of David, were guilty of as great enormities as any ever committed by the Kotnish clergy. Nor have the Protestant clergy, nor those ot any other church been without their crimes. Every sectof religion iu its infancy, when strug gling to spread itself throughout the world and to establish a reputation, adopts the severest code of morals, but when it has attained prosjierity uud (low er, by means ot connection with the State or other wise, then the natural depruvity ot the human mind, even under clerical habiliments, manifests it self. Look at the Greek clergy?the Catholic clergy?the church of England clergy?they have all been guilty of the same crime which Mr. Kirk would fasten exclusively on the clergy of the church of Rome. There are, no doubt, ma ny errors in the church el Rome?speculative? morul?philosophical and religious. But that church has fulfilled her mission during the last thousand years, and no other ceurch could have maintained its position during the dark ages, in the benighted regions of Europe, bu: the Catholic church, aniniat* ed by pure principles and spirited on by pure piety, po as to prevent the whole ot Europe from falling under Mahomedanism. The Rev. Mr. Kirk, be he as learned as A<]uinas, exhibits only the most shal low uud contemptible ignoruuce.when heendeavors, in this enlightened'age, to bring up the errors and the enormities of the Catholic clergy of a past age as any objection, or of any crime lo be charged against those innocent at the present time. The Church ol Rome in its day and generation, fulfilled the mis sion of the Almighty, as much as the Protestant church, which is following out the same mission under the same influence, and by the same permis sion. We have seen too much ot this empty fanaticism ?ot this intolerant religious persecution during the last few years in New York and throughout the coun try, to tolerate it any longer: and the Rev. Mr. Kirk ought to have more sense, und to have a mind slightly more accessible to the lessons of the tunes, than to indulge in such ignorance and folly. The j recent events in this city and in Philadelphia ought to teacn Mr. Kirk, and all others like him, modera tion and christian charity. The enthusiasts and fanatics are too late in the day to impregnate so ciety with their ridiculous fancies at the present time. Legal Reform.?One ol the principal subjects taken up at the approaching Sta'e Convention to amend the Constitution, will be that of legal reform. Perhaps no subject requires more searching inves tigation than that. The excessive number of law yers which crowd the bar, render it utterly impossi ble that more than a very small proportion ol the , whole can make a decent living. Probably out of nearly two thousand, which crowd the bar of New York, not over twenty or thirty make a handsome annual income. We suppose that about twenty or thirty more make a moderate income, and as many more just make both ends meet at the end of the year. But the great proportion are without em- j ployment, or cases, or briefs, save that which they make themselves, and is the produce of pettifogging of the meanest and most contemptible kind. There is a certain class of lawyers, mere petti foggers, who do nothing but look over the news papers, finding out some persons in the police reports on whom some remarks may be made, discovering their residences, and then proceeding to dieir houses and instigating them to commence suits against newspaper proprietors, without any ground, merely for the sake of a few dollars, which they get from the individuals they deceive, or the newspaper pro prietors whom they may intimidate. On many oc casions we know this has been done, without any intention of pursuing such suits beyond the mere commencement, but merely with the view of going to the newspaper proprietors and offering to " settle" it lor eight or ten dollars. Others, again, offer their services gratuitously to miserable creatures who commence suits, without any ndequa'e funds, for the purpose of having their names in the newspapers, and of being reported as counsel against certain edi tors and newspaper proprietors who are well known in the community This is only one system of pet tifogging that we happen to have had some expe rience in, and which we have met on all occasions promptly, by contesting to the uttermost all such pettifogging suits, so thrft those misetable creatures and lawyers soon find that nothing is to be made out of us. If some provision could be introduced in the new Constitution to throw open the whole profession of the law to the public, and to prevent a monopoly of il to those who call themselves lawyers, many of whom know just as much about law as the man in the moon, we thin* it would be of great advantage to society at large as constituted in this country. Medical Convention?We perceive that a conven tion of the medical men of Tennessee is to be held in Memphis in the course of a few days, for the pur pose of consulting on measures oonnectcd with the interests and pros|>erity of the profession. Delegates are also to be chosen to the Medical Convention in this State. Michigan Election.?According to the return^ received, Michigan has gone tor the democrats, but by a diminished majority. It is thought, and with some show of reason, that the issue which the whigs made in this election, die sale of the Htate improvements, had the most to do with the decreased democratic majority. Old Colony Railroad.?This new road, con necting Boston with Plymouth, was opened on Sa turday with all the honors. The Hon. John Quincy Adams and Daniel Webster were present* and made speeches.

Dreadful Accident at Harper's Ferry, Va We learn from ihe Spirit of Jtfftrton, that on K day evening, as the agent and workmen on the Wincl ter ami Potomac railroad attempted to remove some c cars from the lower to the upper depot at Harper s h ry, the trussling gave way, and buried beneath a hi mass of timber, care, kc . Mr Brown, agent of the ros Mr. Henry K. Gasker, William, son of Mr. Brown, i negro man lleterly, the norter of the cais, fco. Mr. <i kor and the son ol Mr Brown were taken from nn< the pile with lile perfectly extinct. Mr. Brown's in, ries are very great, and it he survives, it will be altni a miracle. Beverly, the negro man, ia less injured TUeatrlrals, r.nkTHUTit.-L?it evening the Park boxes pre sented an array of beauty and fashion such as we have seldom seen thero before this season. Old men, young men, philosophers, men of the world, poots, and last in category, though first in mind and eye, a galaxy of la. die*, fair to look upon, whose eyes beamed with bright ness and whose whole faces were radiant with pleasure, as they sat watching the progress of the play. Upon their appearance, the Keans were hailed with such a per fect outburst ot enthusiastic applause as Old Drury sel dom if ever before heard. It loomed as if the very e*. ?encet of all other plaudits which erer shook (hose wails had been compressed and reserved for the present occa sion. The Keans never looked better. Their Southern tour has been of great benefit to them in recruiting their health and spirits and preparing them for the winter campaigu. The play presented was Hamlet, the most original, singular, and to most nunds incomprehensible emanation from the world-containing soul of Shakspeare. There Is probably no character in the whole range of tragedy or comedy which Mr. Kean has more closely studied than that of Hamlet, and we consider it more ad mirably adapted to his peculiar powers than any other. Hamlet's philosophical musings, his settled melancholy, his abrupt action and suddou bursts of teuderness ami deep feeling, were all given with an effect rarely if ever witnessed on our stage. Hamlet has usually been con sidered an incomprehensible character, a vagary of the imagination, a something which was not meant to tie un derstood.and pursuing this idea its personators have usu ally studied to throw around it as much as possible of obscurity, and it has been veiled completely not only from the common mind, but oven from the student ami man of letters. This conception is an error. The great mind of Shakspeare never yet conceived or ex pressed a thought which is not fraught with deep meaning, and which, it properly rendered and enacted, may not be understood by the most simple. ? Mr. Kean has so studied Hamlet, and so he gives it to his audience. Truly it is singular. It cannot bo otherwise, but still Mr. Kean depicts it with such a truthfulness, us to carry the hearts, as well as minds ol the house, with him Mrs. Kean's Ophelia was a beautiful conception, and consistent throughout. She identified, us she al ways does, herself with the character; and while we discover in her the accomplished artiste in her profes sion, we always find her true to nature, and excellent in scenes requiring pathos, and touches of deep feeling.? The evening closed with the laughable larce of "Turning the Tables." ..... The same excellence, though of a different kind than that which belongs to Mr Kean's Hamlet, may^ be lound I in his Macbeth, which is to be played this evening. W e have dwelt at length upon this performance, and pointed out, in detail, its various merits. It is acknowledged by critics abroad, te be Mr. Kean's most etfectivo character, if, perhaps, we except his Hamlet. The superstition, ir resolution, and the absorbing passion of Macbeth, are, throughout the play, portrayed in a masterly manner; and the flth act, in which he is roused to fury, and exhi bits a great display of physical energy and wild despair, is given with an effect tnuy appalling. Mrs. Kean's La dy Macbeth is one of her finest performances; and at her last engagement delighted the critical, and drew down loud bursts of applause. The " Stranger" is anuounced for Mrs. Kean's benefit, and last appearance, to morrow evening. On Thursday, Mr. and Mrs. Kean leave this city for Boston. We congratulate the patrons of the dra ma, in that critical city, on the dramatic banquet that awaitsathem. Bowery Theatre.?-Last evening, Mr. J. 11. Scott ap peared at the Bowery, in the character of Marc Antony in the tragedy of "Julius Catsar." It was one of the most powerful,,yet at the same timo as chaste and clas sic a performance as was erer witnessed on the boards of the Bowery. In addition to the beautiful personation of Mr. Scott, we must add a word of the stock company which supported him. It was perfectly adequate to the task. Mr. Davenport's Brutus, and Mr. Clarke's Cassius were performances which promise of future brilliancy in these young actors. After the tragedy, the beautiful drama of the "Enchanted Fountain," in which the cele brated Rivers family appeared, was played. This won derful family, consisting of three brothers, performed some of the most beautiful anil surprising gymnastic feats we ever witnessed, and with such a perfect grace, quickness, and vivacity, as to carry the whole house j with them. Their performances on the airial cord, are | most wonderful exhibitions of strength combined with elegance. Many of their feats are entirely original, and , have never been attempted boforo. An evening spent in witnessing them will more than repay time and expense. The evening closed with the "Fouiah Slave," in which Messrs. Cony and Blanchard, and the wonderful dog ap Eeared. To-night the tragedy of "Julius Oatsar" i* kto ; e repeated, together with the "Enchanted Fountain," j and the "Koulah Slave." Mn. Hill's Concert, and Leofol* de Mevek.?If ever i concert deserved the name of festival, it was that of last night, for we have never seen a programme so rich and varied, containing so many gems of the greatest compo- j sers, and an array of executive talent, which seldom has j been found together in New York. The orchestra num- j berei a full hundred, and the chorus nearly three times the amount. They were magnificently drilled, and Mr. '? Hill has shown that the arrangement of the whole could not have fallen into better hands. The overtures to Guillaumo Tell, and the Jubilee, weie performed with a spirit and precision which elicited substantial applause from tho audience, as well as the chorus from Euranthe and Mose. Miss Northall has wonderfully improved since last year; she has a beautifully clear and sweet voice, set off through a method, with which many a singer ofestablished reputation would tie satisfied. The duett by Mercadante was given with a delicacy and cor rectness duly acknowledged by the house, nor was sho less pleasing in her solo in Bishop's Tramp Chorus. Ma dame Otto sung the somewhat worn out Cavatina <rom Donizetti's Betly, but she imparted some freshness to it, through the creditable manner with which she acquitted herself. Mr. Boucher played a moreenu on ilia violon cello, with as much taste as feeling, and Mi. Kyle per formed variations on an air from Douna dt Logo, with that distinctness and distinction ot tone, which have made him such an universal favorite. Both reaped hearty and well earned applause. Messrs. Meyer and Aupick did the bent they could, but laal was not much. The hero of the evening was De Meyer, the great, the lion, , the magnificent pianist, who played his astonishing Marc he Marocaine. Mere we need not suy. He was re ceived with loud and protracted cheers, warmly ap- j plauded after the "Nott urnio,'"which he played as an in troduction, and stormiihly encored at the conclusion of j the march. With that wonderful versatility, which is one of his most prominent qualities, he played the " Car nival of Venice"?the rival of the "Marche Marocaine," | and insensibly fell into " Hail Columbia." which was hailed by the delighted audience with thunders and I lightniDg of hurrahs. He introduced himself as a leader I to the public in his march?with a very original instru | mentation by Borlio-aud ho showed that he never was ! accustomed to loliow. Tho march, which i?extremely ' difficult, wus performed by the band in a very praise- - j worthy manner, although they had-duly two rehearsals^ I but it is the best practical criticism on De Meyer's play ing that could be imagined ?he actually produces more , effect on his F.rard, than a full and good orchestra. Mr. Hill is entitled to the thanks of alt lovers of music. He has giv^/i them the best musical treat they have ever hail, regardless of expense and trouble. \Yu really were pleased to sec the Tabernacle so densely crowded, by one of the most fashionable audiences, and the warmth of applause with which he was culled out at the conclu sion of the concert was tibhiy deserved. He returned thanks in the following manner Ladies and-Oentlkmen I ain Unexpectedly summoned before you, without preparation, and from this cause I must ask you, most respectfully, ladies and gentlemen, to overlook the faults in the matter and the manner ot what I may say to you. The troubles and difficulties of getting up u performance such as has been presented this evening, I will not at tempt to enumerate. Although many, yes, almost all, the distinguished musical talent ol the city I see around | me husfbeen tendered to mo in the kindest spirit, from Mermans, F.nglish, Americans, French, Italians, in short, from nil, without distinction, all has been spontaneous 1 and kindly given?I can only say that, to them all, I ten der my most hUartfelt and sincere thunks. From the ' position in which I'rovidence km* placed me, tho gratifi I cation ot being the father of the darling of my heart, the Philharmonic Siocietyfand the constant guardian of the no leas esteemed Sacred Music Society?the last for eighteen years ?and the associations which I have held in getting up the musical solemnity to the memory ol the ever-to-be-cherished Daniel Schefsinger, and on various charitable occasions, 1 feel it my duty, if 1 have been useful, to continue to be more useful, and to extend the utmost liberality to all ?ny professional brethren. We are a youthful country. F.vnry thing is in prospect. The musical art demands great exertions to elevate it in our beloved country to th.i proper standard?to that of the old world. Two particular points, besides sustaining those we have aiready'attainen, I will neTer givo up until I see them accomplished. One is, the erection of a E;rand Musical Hall, equal to thai in Birmingham, F.ng and ; tho other is a Musical Festival, on the plan of those so often given in Europe. Nihlo's.?Aleaxndkr, Olk Bull ano the Mesmeri zes.?Still another very large and fashionable audience graced tho boxea ol this favorite place of amusement last night, to witness the astonishing feats of the modern Me* phistophiles?better known, in common parlance, as Herr Alexander. We doubt if such a succession of full and fashionable houses hare, at any timo, assembled there during the past season. And as one feat hss suc ceeded another during the exhibition, of this accom plished gentleman and unequalled magician, his aston ished auditors " Like dumb statues?or breathless stones, State on each other." But it is not alone on public occasions that Iterr /\]ex" under delights to bewilder and astonish. He is ever rea dy, when an opportunity presents, to practise his jokes to the no little amusement of those .who may he so for tunate as to witness them as we will endenvor to prove While that groat genius, Ole Bull, (who, by the bye, loves a good joke as well at any one,) was on his west ern tour last spring, he met wltn Alexander at Memphis Thoy were frieuds - they wore to t>a sojourners Kir a short time in the same city, ami tliey put up at the same hotel. It so happened that Ole Bull had somewhere, pre vious to this, formed an acquaintance with one Dr. Mmith, (not the Hev Dr. Hoi Smith, of the New Orleans ?nd St. Louis theatres ) a celetirated lecturer on animal magnetism, who had Just a- rived at Memphis also and was preparing to give a series of lectures on tho sci ence ol which h<> was, to sev the least, the zealous ad vocate. After the uiunl salutations and inquitie*, Ole Bull said to ftmith, " Do you know you have a very able competi tor here, who is also preparing to give a course of ho turei?" " No," was the quick response "Well, so it is," said Ole Bull, " and he is decidedly the most power ful mug no User iq the woild It is p ursctly astonishing to witness till?gparinianU;' Who is h* who 1* III" ?aid ftmitft, parf'ctly amused " Wis nam# Is Alexander i He is a foreigner "? Oerman?and cannot speak very ! good Knglish -hut his experiments are truly wonderful. He can do any thing by the mere power of his will? quick as thought?and what is still more singular, he is I hiPbwn clairvoyant." Smith win anxious lor an iatro ' duction to this wonderful man, which was soon had. A pack of cards was then sent for hy Ole Bull, and pre sented to Smith, who was requested to shuttle them.? Alexander then took them, aud in-ited Smith to draw one I and sec what it was, which he did, aud placed it again in I the pack. He was then told that it was the uino of spades. He said it was tine, but insisted on its being done over again. Ilethetidrow another, and this time i would not place it back again. Alexander told him u I made no difference?"it was the queen of clubs." Tho I magnetiser, greatly excited, exclaimed, " Do it once I more! Do it again!" lie then drew a card, as quick as thought, and placed it under his coat. Alexander look ed hiin straight in the eye?" Sir," said he, "my clairvoy ant tells rar your card is tho king of spades." Our magnetism's under jaw tell at least four inches ? his eyes roiled in their sockets, and he seemed to look upon the performer of these feats as a very wizzard. Ole Bull was in extacies. Alexander saw the astonishment of Smith, but takiDg little notice of it, he romarked, these were small mat ters to what he could do; and taking a gold coin from his pocket, aud shutting his hand upon it, made a lew I " passes" over it with the other, end without moving to wards Smith at all, but remaining a distance of some four feet, toid him it must be in his (Smith's) vest pocket. - s in it h unbuttoned his coat, and sure enough, he drew forth the coin. But this was too much -his breath he canio shorter?his nostrils dilated?lie stared first at Al exander, and then at Ole Bull, evidently not willing to believe his senses. Just at this moment, a boat was an nounced as being in sight, rnd thinking his chance a slim one, with such a rival as Alexander, he left'' by the first boat," to the great amusement of the spectators. Miss Bhamsom's Concert.?This spirited and talented young girl will give her farewell Conceit at Niblo's Sa loon this evening. She will be assisted by her sister, who is only seven years old, and several well known artistes. The Misses Bramson are extiaordinary chil dren, and Josephine's performances on the piano are real ly astonishing. Mysterious Soiree.?This cuiious entertainment is to be given to-inorrow evening at Concert Hall. Alhamra.?Last evening a fashionable audience at tended tiiis popular place of amusement, to listen to the irresistible droHeiies of Dr. Valentine, and the enchant iug strains of tho Anglesea Singers. They continuo every evening this week. Ole Dull is to give a concert in I'hiladeiphia in a few days, lor the benefit of the poor of the city and county ot Philadelphia. The Scguins commenced an engagement last night at the Chesnut Street Theatre, Philadelphia, in Bellini's opera of "11 Puritani." Mr. Dempster leaves the city to-day on a professional tour to Albany, Utica and the western New York cities. Joe Sweeney, the famous banjo player, baa arrived in this country from Kurope, and expects to lorm an eu gagement with Mr. John Potter, of the Richmond Thea tre. Ueoroe Vaxdenhoi'f.?Among the arrivals in the packet ship Toronto, from London, we notice the namo of ticorge Vandcnholf, the elder. It is said that he has

come to this country with a view of remaining for the purpose ofpractiiing law. Van Amburgh's Menagerie have arrived in the Toronto from London. Sporting Intelligence. Trotting on the Ckntreville Track, L.I., * ester DA*.-" A GREAT CRY, BUT LITTLE WOOL."?There W0S R promise of some good sport to come of as above, hu the result shows thet quadrupeds are as uncertain as bi pods. It was announced that Lady Suffolk, Moscow, and Dutchessfwere to come together ; the consequence I was ? that there was a numerous and highly respectable I attendance at this course. At tho early part of the pro- j I rce,lines the betting was the Lady against tne neia , 1 even on Moscow ngainsttho Lady. Shortly after, it n'aa rumored that the Lady would not start ; at this, certain far^s became very mich elongated ; but the appearance of her owner on the ground shortly after, "bj?1"0'afl)^ why and the wherefore.

New ones era constantly being put in operation, both for mining and breaking coal. Our mechanics, especially the machin ists, have been reaping a rich harvest for some time, ow ing to the large number of new works which bsvebeen constructed. It is probable thet more than $1,000,000 have been expended in the region during the naat yerr, in making improvements of various kinds. At least six hundred new houses for miners have been built, exclu- 1 nive of those in the largo towns. Tne conseuuance has been an extraordinary activity in trade, and businesa of evary kind has beeu unusually brisk this year. During the hosting season of next year, we can and will sand i forty thousand tons of coal to market per week?the trade will steadily increa?e at the rate of between 2 and I 400 000 Ions per annum ?and the prosperity and businesa of the region will gradually and steadily incrensa with tho iacrease of tho coal shipments.'

Or and Ball or the iBDKHfiotNrToiinisi1 Bluer at Caitle Garde*?Beautt and Kaahion?The Ooddeaa ok the Waltz?Quadrillkd, lie.?The third annual ball of tha Independent Tumkins' Blues came otf lait nigtit at Caatle Gardeu, with great tela! On entering this truly magnificent saloon, which is undoubtedly the finest and most extensive ball room in America, we were struck by the grand coup The glare ui lights, re reuling to the enchanted eye the briTliancy ot the con gregated beauties who had assembled to impart addi tional lu-tre to the scene?tho glitter of jewels?the flashing of dark eyes tho uniforms of out gallant citi zen soldiers, all combined to give promise of enjoyment. Loud swells the music?drums, trumpets, flutes, haut boys, cymbals struggling for the mastety, inviting to the intoxicating waltz. Now rises each lovely belle from the cushions where her beauties had reposed and lends, ah ! too willingly, the lovely and taper waist to the encroaching arm of her hapjiy partner. In rapid waves float the delicious music, while she relinquishes the treasures of her form to the gentle support and pres sure of her delighted rompagnon it raise. In giddy maze each happy couple whirl round and round-the lights indistinct with the rapidity of motion?joy and delight beaming in tbe eye of both. Here moves the rounded and beauteous form of Miss L??, a sweet girl who has just numbered seventeen summers, engrossing all eyes and swaying with absolute empire all male hearts?while the least ol the auburn tresses which float in wild pro fusion o'er her alabaster shoulders, would set a dozen young poets raving. The chaiming and intellectual Miss 8 moves with fairy lightness, yielding a reluctant compliance to the support a Abided her. The antelope gaze of bet large dark eyes, cast down, and her modest drapery kissing fairy feet, which seem to skim, rather than kiss' tho gross earth. The placid Miss M? seems destined to roll on undisturbed by the warm emotions of love ?she moves in undulating harmony her soft blue eyes, borrowing flashes of illumination from her smiling and dimpling Tips, she looks as if her soul vaulted towards heaven's pinnacle. There, too, is a lovely Jewess, dress ed most sumptuously, hanging on the arm of Lieut. G. Thoy are, indeed, " the observed of all observers " Ah, too pleasing and fascinating waltz- at thy feet bouds inexorable fashion in reverent worship wonder ful ! that thy voluptuous beauties should have been first disclosed in the frigid clime of the grave, philosophic uad metaphysical German?fervid and intoxicuting god dess, thy smiles should have first opened beneath the sun ny influence of an eastern clime ? Circussia's vales or Persia's flowery meads should have matured thy innu merable graces, but fate decreed that the goddess of the wait/should rise, where a Strauss could he found to wor ship her in strains of soul-enchanting melody. Tho lively waltz was succeeded by a drill by the Toinpkius' Blues. Every thing here was order and regularity, and be trayed close attention on the part of each member to his respective duties. Next followed several quadrilles All was gaiety and mirth, and we left the ball room crowded to excoss. It was, indeed, an admirably eontri ved affair. The members of the Common Council and several distinguished strangers wore present as iuvited guests?while our citizens generally seemed to enjoy themselves exceedingly. Broadway Mock Auctions.?We steppod into a noto rious mock auction shop in Broadway yesterday, and were particularly amused by the various tricks used by the auctioneer and Peter Funks to gammon a couple o green-looking countrymen, who had come in for the purpose of making a speculation. The ofliciafiug auc tioneer held in his hand a galvanized tin watch, which he stated, in most eloquont and affecting terms, a poor sailor, who had been shipwrecked 011 the coast of South America, and had landed with nothing but this watch, which had been given him as a remembrance by bis mother, had left there to be sold solely for his benefit. The auctioneer handed the watch to a tall, good looking gentleman, with a white cravat and spec tacles, and who had every appearance of a countr,- cler gyman.' This gentleman looked at the watch with a dis criminating glance, and bid boldly and loudly fifteen dol lars. At this moment, a tanner-looking man, with a high bell-crowned hat and tough over-coat, entered the esta blishment. " Ah, Mr. Brown," said tho clergyman, "have you sold your butter?" "Yes," said the farmer, "and at a good price." This convcisatioii was carried on so that tho two flats could distinctly hear it Tho watch was now handed to the farmer, who bid another dollar. The auctioneer then took it, and dilated upon its beau ties. After this, he handed it to a fine, fleshy looking gentleman, with "Alderman, take a look at this." Tho Alderman held it in just such a light that the flats could see it?examined very narrowly the inside acd tho out side, and bid eighteen dollars. The flats could not re sist, and tho greenest looking one bid twenty dollars. The auctioneer after stating that it was altogether too low, knocked it down to the flat, who paid for and pock eted it? thinking whnt a dash he would cut among the lasses of the Green Mountains. Probably before this, ho has found out his mistake. The auctioneer now, with a smiling countenance, stated that there "wouldn't be not no more sales to-day," and the Funks and ourself left tho office. Pias itv the Park.?A fine lot of young porkers, attend ed by their maternal protector, spent most of the day in the Park yesterday, rooting up tho grass plats. Where's tbe keeper? Junk Shots.?There is a law, we believe, in this cify which roquires that all shops established for the pur chase ana sale of old iron, copper, rags, be., should be licensed, and therefore placed under the control of the police. Now there are probably in the city five unli censed junk shops where there is one which is licensed. i There is co doubt that those shops are, in many cases, i the mere receptacles of stolen goods, and we hope the i law of license will be strictly enforced with regard to | them. Magnetic Tkleorakh.?That portion of the telegraph I wire between this city and Coney Island, which run across the K.ast River, was yesterday laid from Fulton j ferry on this side to Fulton ferry on the other. It will bo recollected that the wiros originally laid here were 1 torn up by an anchor. The Law's Uei.av.?A boy about 9 years old was brought up at the Court of Sessions to-day for discharge, i He has been confined for some weeks in the tombs as a , witness. Hotel Rorrkriks ?We learn that Mr. K. A. Pratt, of North Blenheim, in this State, was robbed of (777, iu one hundred dollar hills, on the Mechanics' Bank, while lodging at the National Hotel, in Courtlanilt. street, on Saturday night. His chamber door was locked, yet tbe room was entered and the money taken from his panta loons'pocket We understand that Mr. P. has offered a reward of $100 for the recovery of his money. This case should act as a warning to all persons who atop at hotels, and in large boarding houses. It is not enough known that doors locked, by simply turning a key, is very insufficient security in a city like this; if the doors have no bolts, pile up chairs, oi place the bedstead against the entrance. This alone will save strangers from being robbed. Mortality.?There were only one hundred and flftj* six deaths in this city last week.

Dr. Adams' Church, in Broome street, whs thronged last evening with a large audience, who assembled on the occasion of a constitution being presented for the adoption and government of (lie Colporteurs of the city of New York. Mr E. H. Blatchford, of this city, delivered an introductory discourse on the Colporteur system, in which he said that it was the creature of circum stance and owed its ottgin to the wunts of those who were destitute of the means of grece. It is the system by which the great plan of salvation has been made known to many. Mr.' Blatchford said m the city of New York alone there are upwards of 180,000 souls destitute of the means of grace, and who had no places of worship provided for them, and the object* theColportours have in view is to supply those destitute souls with such raeuns, although their labors w01 o not confined to tnis city but extend over every State and territory ot the Union. At present thore were in 29 States and territories 12S Colporteurs in the employ ol the Amaricau Tract Society. The Colporteur system is not to be received as hostile to the stated preaching of the gospel; it is only auxiliary, and its ef fort* peculiarly are directed towards those Roman Ca tholics who have sought this country as un asylum from foreign oppression, between whom and us thcro is a bar rier almost insurmountable. Mr. illutcliford theu went on to say that if words of lot e arid charity and less denuncia ation had been used towards t'utholics, the success of our efforts would hove been far greater than it is; that denunciation does not soften the heart but it lobs truth of half of its power. By telling a Catholic that Home is an abomination and the seat of baptism by the priests a piece of iniquity, is not the wuy to convert bim, for the Catholic loves his Church, uud persecutiou has made him devoted to it, and he will not listen to the man who denounces it It seems to him that the Protestant church has erred in this respect, and the progress of tho Komish Church in this country is owing in part to the violence and denunciation levelled against it. lie has heard many sermons ou Home, ami, in most instances, the impression left on his mind was, that if a Human Catho lic wore present, and heard them, he would be more confirmed in his errors. Mr Ula-iciikohi> then related a dialogue which took place between a German Colporteur named Kitty, in the employ ol the American Tract Society, an I u Ger man family of Catholics, whom he commenced with in a very mild manner, an 1 finally succeeded in converting to the Protestant faith, and detailed some of his expe rience with the Catho'ica. The German says, " If 1 be gin talking against his church, tiio Catholic is like a rock. He must be taken with love. All the hooks pub lished against tho < 'alhuiies bring.no ft till: bard speeches spoil a great many. .All fiery boo as mist be kept away; but the distribute jn of such hooks as Baxter is nest; the New Testament is liken ise a powerful book in tho rer vico." it may be said that Tome is corrupt, and was de nounced hs so oceuiy by the rofoini -r?, whose labors were attended with success But Home does not pre sent tiie same front new that it did in the reformation; it does not potent tho same front now in uny two coun tries, and Italy done is the place where it present* the front that it did iu the days of Luther. In attacking it, the front in which it presents iNelt is to be considered. The system of Colporteur is designed as a menus ol' I reaching the hearts of the Irish, those adherents of tho I Church of Home who cannot be gathered into our sanc tuaries, but must be sought alter. | Rev. Mr. Cook next addressed the audience and fur ' ther defined the objects of the system, which he said , was twofold, the prosecuting ol the work of Colporteur and the suppress! "u of immoral literature, in which there are but two churches at preseut engaged in, one of I whom has said that the evil which flows from the pub | lishiDg of this literature is greater than Sabbath break I ing or intemperance. Ho asked the young men ef Now \ York for their assistance in this movement. The Hev. Mr. Kirk then spoke ut some length. Ho dissented from Mr. Blatchford as to the way in which | the war against Rome was to be carried ou He con tended that there should be no compromise. He was | glad the subject had been brought up, for he, on Sunday { evening, preached one of those denuaciatory sermons | to which Mr. 11. alluded. He is in favor of attacking the ; very citadel of Homo itself, and would not sacrifice an iota of principle, let the consequonco be as it may. If i brother Blatchford had been talking all day with a parcel I of Jesuits he could not have suited them better than by | speaking as he has spoken this evening. We must make every Catholic who lands on tkesosbores understand : that we are a talking people, and if they wish to step us j they must provide ft gag for each of us. if I cannot at , tack Uome here, sail Mr. K., 1 will go to Home and there I attack her. The constitution of tho society was then submitted and adopted. After which, Dr. Tyng spoke at some length in the same strain as his predecessor, Mr. Kirk. He was opposed to all compromise,and said that there were more Luthers needed to carry out the movement. If he sup pored there was to be uny sacrifice of principle, any compromise, or fiiDching, he would not co operate with them. He might be attacked by presses hired lor tho purpose; he might be vilified and abused, but he did not chre for that. The names of members of the association were then collected, and the meeting adjourned. Arrest and Imprisonment of Mr. Rowley? | His Insanity?More Mystery.?The Providence Qiixelte. of Saturday says We mentioned yesterday tho arrest in this city of a man by the name of Davis, who was suspected, on what grounds particularly wu could not ascertain, of being the person who had robbed Mr. Rowley of Wrenthatn, some weeks ago, on board Lie steamer Massachusetts. Measures had then been taken to have Mr. Rowley, who it was supposed, was in New i York, stop in this city on his return home, that he might i indeutify the piisoner, il indeed he were tho guilty nsa. I In this state of things, dr. Blake, of Wrenthuro, brother I in law of Rowley, arrived hero, last evening, and stated I to the examining magistrate that .Mr. Rowley was now 1 in Jail in Boston.und to ail appearances a raving maniac. He had intended to leave Boston on Monday last for New | York, and had purchased a ticket for that purpose, when ? lie was arrested on a writ issued against him on the com | plaint of some of his creditors, and immediately incarce I rated in jail In order to cfl'ect this, it becamo necessary ' lor his creditors lo swear that they had reason to sue I pose lie intended to leave the State, and this they could of course honestly do, after ho had purchased a ticket ! for New York. Whetner they suspected him of foul play, we have no other means of knowing than from the facts here given; but irom these we judge that such must have been the esse. Meantime Rowley has be come, to all appearances, a maniac, and tho anticipated identification of Davis is at an end for the present at least. We understand that the examining magistrate decided to release him, and presume that he is now at large. 'lhe above paragiaph is substantially correct. Iu ad dition to the particulars therein stated, w e have obtain ed the following On the 1st inst. Mr. Rowley arrived inthis city from New Yoik, lot the purpose, he said, ol searching for the person who haiTrobbed him, and he went over to East Boston to note particularly the pas sengers who sailed in the British steamer that day. On Monday afternoon he was arrested by deputy sheriff Tai bell, at the suit of Henry Pettes it Co , lor $1300, and iu the evening was committed to jail. On Wednesday, he being still in jail, threo more writs were served upon him, vi7.one in favor of Davis, Talmer k Co., for f>800; one in favor of Win. E. Blanchnrd St Co., for $1200, and one in favor of Alfred A. Andrews k Co., for $800. If sane when arrestod, he was observed to be otherwise soon afterward. The symptoms of mental aberration continued to increase up to Saturday evening, when his creditors accepted some of his friends for bail, and I ay released him from jail for the purposo of com e> ing him to the insane hospital at Worcester.?Bottom To.it, Nov. 10.
