NEW YORK HERALD. Hew York, \\ r<lnr?>luy, Vovciubtr lit. 1S4S. Steamship BrltiMt*' This steamer liad not arrived at Boston yesterday morning. .She is now in her fifteenth day, and is, therefore, fully due. In the anxiety to receive her news, the apeculaton think her passage a long one. I'oaltlon and Policy or ttoe Administration? Vlt wi of the Future. In some of the ancient chronicles of Greece, sin gular and amusing accounts are sometimes furnish ed, illustrating the |ieculiar characteristics of the oracles, during the latter stages or their existence' and belore Christianity had driven the devil and al* his oracles out of the world. " Once on a time,' as the 6tory of Cinderella has it, a great king and potentate visited one of these oracles; whether il was the oracle of Apollo or not, we cannot tell. His majesty wanted to discover what would be the re sult of a campaign, which he had projected against a certain nation of barbarians to the North, and he accordingly applied to the Pythoness, to ascertain what she could unriddle of the future, with regard to that great expedition. The Pythoness was not exactly young, but a singular mixture of age?youth ?capricious temper?and lucid intervals. He at tempted to coax the future out of her; but happen ing to be in a bad humor on the day when he ap . proached the temple, she did nothing but scold, and scold, and rate his majesty?find fault with the tie of his kerchief, and ridicule the cut of his hair.? The wily potentate finding that coaxing and good humor would not have an effect upon the oracle, then began another system of punishment and pinching. This produced the desired effect. In the vexation of the moment, and the fury of the present annoyance, the Pythoness broke forth full of predic" lions of all kinds, disclosing the future as broad and as clear as the sun discloses the landscape at noon day, with the clear sky, and not a cloud to mar the face of heaven. Such is the position of Mr. Ritchie, the printer to President Polk, both residing at Washington, the <>ne in the White House, and the other in the old house belonging to the Globe, which is a sort of Pelphos to the Capitol. Mr. Ritchie is the oracle? the he-Pythoness of the Administration. Informer days, Mr. Blair, whose amiability was, to a wonder tul extent, and beautiful indeed as a prophetess of old occupied the same position; bat he having fulfilled tus destiny, has retired to enjoy the otiuvi < um dig iiitalr at Silver Creek, and to taste the blessings o^ a well spept life and well hoarded 8|>oils. Mr Ritchie is the printer and Pythoness now, and when we could not find out the secrets of the Cabinet and the Administration, nor the mysteries of the White House from him, by coaxing and gentle means, by tickling him under the chin, or complimenting him on his venerable wisdom, and the sanctity of the J efiersoman democracy, and the profundity of the resolutions of 1798?when we could not accomplish our lnientians 111 this way, we thought it best to take a leaf out of ancient history, and to approach him as the king did in the story we have just told, taken trom one of the ancient chronicles ef Greece?pinch him and tease him till at last he bursts forth disclos ing the future?the intentions of the Cabinet?the wishes of the President?the mysteries of the White House?every thing that a politician can want or disclose, in the greatest fullness, and with the most complete elaboration in his columns, as we have given in another portion of this day's Herald. Mr. Ritchie is touchy and tender, and exceeding iyaensitive, and wonderfully capricious, just as were the ancient oracles of the old world. But he must ?.arii moderation, and keep his temper, and try to meet his destiny with fortitude and calmness. We wish to do him no harm?but if lie gets too toudiy, we must administer a little medicine to him in his own way. He berates a contemporary, and also the ISew York Herald, for supposing that Mr Benton has any influence in the columns of the organ rela tive to the Oregon position, taken up by the admin istration. Well, we have no wish to miBiepresent either Mr. Polk or Mr. Ritch>e, and we will take it f or granted that ihe opinions put forth by the organ 0.1 the Oregon question, are the opinions of the ad ministration without reference to Mr. Benton or any other individual. Yet we will affirm positively, that we have a right, in ascertaining the position on any public measure taken by the administration, to spe culate on the tendencies of such a position, and such a policy on the fortunes and destiny of politicians, sections ofthe country, and the administration itself! Now we do affirm positively, that a bold, naked and uncompromising position in the whole of the Ore" gon territory, at all hazards, will have the effect en tirely to prostrate Mr. Calhoun as a prominent man in the Democratic party, unless he abandon his own ground, and come out on that popular side of the ques tion, for we believe it to be now at the hazard of 'using the support of his own section of the country. Of this tendency, there can be no doubt. Of the other developments of these curious and touchy articles we have only a few briel words to say. We are assured that Mr. Polk is not a canai. date for the succession?that he will not enter into any contest for that end, and will conduct his admi nistration fearlessly, for the general good of the country, and for the purpose of carrying out the principles which were so weU set forth in the Balti more Convention. We are also assured that he will treat all portions of the party that carried him into power with equal justice and impartiality. We have ho doubt these are the intentions of the Presi dent, but it will be very difficult, under the conflict of various interests, for any administration to carry out these principles with perfect impartiality and discrimination. Mr. Polk and his administration can assume no peculiar and positive ground on any question, without affecting the interests of some of the leading candidates for the succession, either mure or less favorably. An independent press has i perfect right to speculate on these points, without iteing taken to task by the public printer at Wash ngton, or scolded by a distinguished locum tentn* in the Kx-tilobr oflice, wh? may wish the votes o the next Congress. We never, as an independen' lournalist, can give up our liberty of thought and ex1 pression, whether it is pleasing to the government or uan or not, and we have every reason to believe that the President himself is more pleased with these discussions on the tendency of his pelicy, both for eign and domestic, than the organ itself. And we would advise Mr. Ritchie hereafter to regulate Ins temper?to control his sensitive feelings, and to pursue a more dignified course, than to be always bouncing up at every correspondent who may hap l*n to drop a casual remark, or scold at every jour nal disjosed to speculate and philosophise on the course of the administration. This advice is meant well, and the more that Mr. Ritchie takes of the dose, he will find it conducive to his health, both political and physical We have lothing to ask of any administration?we never will give up our right and privilege to judge them with impartiality, and to tell them what we think of them?be they right or wrong. Polly Bodink's Trial.?The same scene to which we alluded yesterday, is still going on in the case of this woman, indicted for murder and arson. It does appear that the good sense of the community has at last been arroused to a full perception of the absurdity and absolute iniquity of the present sys tem of admin'stering criminal justice The vast expense entailed on the county?already amounting to many thousands of dollars, probably?is not by anv means the most serious evil connected with this milter. Justice is defeated, and the forms and ce temonialof our courts made a farce. We do not wish to say anything applicable to counsel on either *ide, or to the judge. The error ib in the organiza" lion of our jurisprudence, and ought to be remedied in ilie approaching .State Convention. ^rKAMSHir (iRKAT Wk?*tkrn ?This ocean packet l>s?scd on the Hth instant, in lat 40 48, long HW, v,v the Miqnelon, at Boston See am Navigation.?We learn that a line of steamships, to run between this city and Charleston, has been organized, and that the lirst steamer will be ready for service early in the spring. It is in contemplation to make the vessels of this line powerful in every point of view, and capable of making the passage to Charleston with great regu larity, in fifty hours or less. They will be of the size and strength ot theSirius and Kojal William, the pioneers over the Atlantic ; they will, in otlieT words, be compl ete sea vessels. This line, in con nection with the late improvements in steam navi gation on the Suwanee, will give us an almost un interrupted steam communication with Key West, New Orleans, Arc., via the Savannah, and over the Suwanee, Santa Fee, and St. John's rivers, to Cedar Keys. All that remains to perfect this enter prise is the establishment of a steam line between the latter place and New Orleans. This will, of course, speedily be done. The progress making in navigating the rivers in the interior; the clearing away of all snags and other obstructions; the connection of important streams by canals, is almost pari pa*su with the great improvement in railroads and other more speedy means ot communication throughout this Union. We can now make the circuit of the United States by water. Theatricals. Park Theatre.?A very select and fashionable audi ?nee assembled last night to witness the second repre sentation of "Lucy of Lammermoor." The performance ol this magnificent opera on the first night was some ^ what imperfect. The production of a grand opera is no small matter. It requires many rehearsals and close at tention to the business and music. The representation' there/ore, on Monday night was much less effective than last evening. .Miss Delcy, as we before remarked, has much improved during her Southorn tour, and sings the music of Lucia with taste and feeling. She has a rich met so lo/irano voice nnd great artistical skill. The du etto at the close of the first act, with Mr. Gardner? "Ah ! my sighs shall on the balmy breeze," drew forth loud bursts ol applause. In the mad scene she was indeed excellent, and captivated all who listen ed to her sweet, yet powerful voice. Mr. Gardner sung in much better taste and time than formerly, and Mr. Brough has really considerable merit The opera is again performed this evening, when wo hope to see the walls of "Old Drury- filled to overflowing. I Bowery Theatre?The superior bill of attractions at til. commodious and really princely establishment, of last nigut, drew together an immense auditory We have rarely witnessed an entire performance with more satisfaction, nor do we remember ever having seen an audience more wrapt in their appreciation of the talent here so unostentatiously displayed.

The brigade line will format 11 o'clock precisely, at Washington parade ground. Several other command* having volunteered to parade on this occasion, they will report at the hour above named, for forming line, and have pott* assigned them. After the review, the bri gade will be formed in column, immediately .and take up the line of march, so a* to enter tho Bowery at Art street, at 12 M., (the same at did the revolutionary army) ?down the Bowery and Chatham to Wall, down Wall to Fearl, down Pearl to the Battery. On the arrival of the command, the American flag will be railed by David Van Aradall, (of the Veteran Corp* of Artillery,) ion of the Van Aradall, who performed the same duty on the ?25th day of November, I7S3. A salute will be fired at sunrise by the Veteran Corps ol Artillery ; and at one o'clock by the Lafayette Horse Guards. The brigade will then wheel into column, march up Broadway to thu Park, be reviewed by Mis Honor, the Mayor, and Corpo ration. A feu dtjoir. will be fired by the infantry on pa rade, when the whole will be dismissed. Tari;ki Firing-?The Howard Guard, (Co. No. 84,) passed our office last evening, on their return from u target firing excursion. Thk Ball Sea?on.?The season for ball* is about com mencing, and from present indications we have every reason to believe that all who love to trip it on the "light fantastic toe," will have plenty of opportunities to gratify their passion. It is a pity that in this country more at tention i* not paid to the divine art. Physiologists agree that it is an exercise most conducive to bodily health and mental cheerfulness, while all who have ever prac ticed it, well know the pleasure which it produce*?and yet, in this country it is but little thought of. Tha Ger mans are a nation of dancer*?why cannot we take a les son from them, and introduce this most delightful exer cise into our system of education 7 Absolutely Horrible?The condition of Na**au st., between Fulton and Beekman street*. A few weeks since the mud was scraped into piles and left to be dis tributed again by the carts which pass through that great thoroughfare. Hard Run.?On Sunday evening a man called at the lodging house, No. 16 West street, and took lodging.? During the night, howevor, he left his bed, broke open the trunk of a fellow ledger, and stole two shirts and three collars, which he is now probably sporting in some of our principal streets. Robbery.?On Monday evening, the house of George Whiting, No. 283 West ISth street, was entered between 7 and 8 o'clock, and a black frock coat and a circular cloak stolen therefrom. The Awning Posts.?We are laboring under the im pression that severalweeks since, the Common Council of this city adopted the measure of removing the awning posts that now encumber the lidowalk* of Nassau street. When i* it to be done I Neglect op the Cori-oration.?A correspondent wishes us to call the attention of the Inspectors of the lftth ward to the condition of Eleventh street, one of the most densely populated streets in the upper part of tho city. He says the inhabitants are constantly notified through the papers, that for an infringement of the law relative to throwing ash?s in the street, they must ex pect the penalty; yet, for months they have not been visitod with an ash eart. Is there no penalty attaching to those whose duty it is to provide carts lor this pur pose, and who neglect their duty 7 In consequence of this neglect the residents have no alternative but to throw the contents of their ash barrels into the street, the condition of which may bo easily imagined. We are well aware of the fact that Eleventh street is not the only one which in this matter is neglected by the Cor poration. A few days ago little bulls were issued from the Police office, .threatening to enforce penalties in case that ashes and garbage were thrown into the street,and now we find that the inhabitants are absolutely forced to do it, owing to no provision being made by the Corpo ration. Be consistent, gentlemen?be consistent ! An Uncaged Violator.?We chanced to fall within the range of one of those scenes so frequent in Chatham street, last night. Nearly opposite the "People's Thea tre," so called, we observed somewhat of a rebellious spirit in the rough hauds of one of our dollar and a half day municipal ytgilantcs, who at first resisted the poten cy of official authority, but being summarily dragged on his unwilling way as far as Orange street, became as resistless as the mountain stream-, upon which, and un der pledge* of more correct propriety,he was suffered to depart to his o wn catsa, to the great enjoyment of tho : "boys" who had surrounded him. Whether he had been to the cheap and nasty pit of the Chatham did not ap pear, although he seemed steeped in "Pierpont's giu," or something ol similar brain-destroying panacea. Rev. Mr. Abbot.?Thi* gentleman, who was sent out by the Baptist .Missionary Society to Burmab, and lias lately returned, gave a short discourse last evening at the V estry of Rev. Dr. Davis's Church in Cannon street. , Mr. A. has been laboring among the Karens, who are spread over a space about as large as the New Eng land States, in Siam and Burmah. In 1837 Mr. A. says the crospel began to spread among the Karens, and conti nuecijto spread for two years. Mr. Abbot said that it was entirely useless for missionaries to go to Burmah.? The lives, properties and rights of Christians are per fectly safe in Burmah, but they must make no converts. Any native Burman who renounces bis religion is im mediately put to death with most cruel tortures. The ' riestsolten came to the missionaries, and requested ooks, but rather than cause their death, they were obliged to refuse them. Mr. Abbot says he met with many misfortunes while on his mission. Fait Dav.?The Synod of New Jersey and New York, has appointed, on account of the inactivity in the church as to revivals, he., to-morrow to be observed us a day of humiliation and prayer, by all the members of the Presbyterian churches embraced in tho Synod. Ser vices will be held in all the churches composing the Synod. The Baptists,?The Convention of Baptists will com mence to-morrow, at the Mulberry street Tabernacle. It is expected that its proceedings will be interesting, as they will probably discuss the slavery question. Rkt. Duncan Di-nbar.?This gentleman has resigned his charge in South Boston, and will soon return to this city and resume his former charge. Police Intelligence. Nov. 18.? Oiand Larceny? The Till Thievet at their eld Game again ?The house of Mr.J. Turner, corner of Uth street and Greenwich avenue, was robbed yesterday af ternoon, about 3 o'clock, to the amount of (60 in money, of the following description One $10 bill on the Long Island Bank; $?'> on Delaware Bridge Company, also a $3; in city bills ; the balance in specie. The frontdoor was open, but the drawer of the bureau was forced with some blunt instrument, no doubt a cbissel; that is the ar ticle generally used by these till tblevei. Lunatics?George Murdock, an escaped lunatic from Baltimore, was arrested by officer Dcniston, of the Third Ward, and by the request of bis friends, the above officer has been deputed to take him back to his old quarters. John Davn, also a runaway lunatic from Plainfield, N. J., was caught last night, and sent to the Alms Houso. Attempt to Steal?John Bartlev was detected in attempt ing to pick the pocket ol Daniel O'Brian. Committed. Daniel Malony, nabbed in the act of stealing a milk can. Committed. False Pretencet?A man by tho name of Solomon P. So lomons, residing in New Orleans, some time since obtain ed a lot of goods, to a large amount, from a firm in this city, by the old story of false representation?they have procured an indictment against Solomons, and one of the firm, a Mr. Smith, had a requisition directed to him from OovernorWright, for this man's arrest, last night; he re turned from New Orleans with Solomons in custody, who is now locked up in the Tombs for trial. We have several important cases under our eye that will appear in due time, when they are in a fit state for publication, and worked up complete by the officer*. Outrageous Conduct.?A decent looking colored man was walking down Centre street yesterday, and when near Pearl, was seized by one of those Five Point ruf fians, who are constantly hanging about that vicinity.? We could see evidently the motive waa to " sound" liim, that is, to touch hia pockets, to find if he had money about him. The colored man, however, clinched with him, and threw him flat on his back on the side walk, and then walked away. The fellow not feeling satisfied, ran after the black man, closed in and was thrown again in like manner, and so on for a third time?when, finding tne negro too much tor him, and being determined to raise a " muss," in hopes that some ok his accomplices might jet a chance (if not himself) to rob the poor fel low, upon the fourth clinch together, they got to blows, both down in the gutter, the white man unaer, when he kicked up and struck the black man on the mouth?upon the crowd collecting around, some of those bright stars called policemen, assisted by the constable of the ward, after soine difficulty parted them, the black man bleeding considerably from the mouth?when, instead of these bright luminaries arresting this vagabond, for such tin outrage, quietly allowed nim to depart ; and when ask ed by some of the citizens, who saw the commencement of the assault, why he was not taken to tha Police office, at the >ame time volunteering to go up and testify to what they saw, the reply was, I did not seo the begin ning of the " muss." If these policeman cannot compre hend what constitutes a breach of the neace, we would advise them to confer with their intelligent and expe rienced Captain, who ivill soon set them right on that point, and not allow such villnins to go unpunished. We think the rag man, who found that important and valuable mail bag, ought to put in his claim for some office?possibly our worthy postmaster might take him by the hand and appoint him mail agent between here and Albany however, If this should fail, why it is ru mored that his friends intend nominating him for Chief of Police, next year. More of the Morality of Boston.?Amonu the niosi painful Rightx which meei our eyes, nrr ili? Monday merning processions ol rioters and drunkards, which are marched by our windows towards the police office. They are composed of men Bnd women, ol boys and girls, of black and white, and yellow, chained at tne wrist in pair*,<not according to color, but probably as found in juxtaposition at the time ol their arrest. It is a common saying, that travelling makes strange bed-fel lows, but vice and crime make stranger companions. An unusually large herd was driven along this morn ing, some ol them wearing the appearance of the low est and most degraded of their kind, and others well dressed, aa if but just admitted to tho nightly orgies of our city hells. We have thought that a more instructive lesson could not be given to the youth of our city, than that furnished by the march of this weekly procession to the halls ol justice. The danger of strong drink the cor rupting influence of ovil companions the downward tendency of vice and erime all proclaimed with an em nhasis which none but the wilfully deal and blind can fail to perceive. ?lloilan Traveller Fraud on the Poor.?It ih *di<l tliat a ^rfai part of th? barrels ol Flour, nold in Miihuacliufiefta, are deficient in weight Homo of them fall short twenty pounds, or more. A gentleman, apparently well inform ed in the matter, has calculated, from facts that have come to his knowledge, that a certain doming establish ment saves at least f3 6D0 a yoar in this way Many others, there is reason to believe, save in equal propor tion. The loss falls principally on the consumer Those who buy large quantities, on speculation, very naturally ascertain the weight, and, if deficient, insist on a corres ponding reduction in the nrico. But the poor man, who nnyi a single barrel for his own consumption, as natural ly takes it without suspicion, as of full weight. It may be well for all who use flour, to stand for their rights. When they pa> tho price ol a barrel of flour, they hav? a right to IW pounds of flour and tho barrel besides, which will weigh nearly or quite twenty pound* ?Traveller. I Brooklyn Intelligence. Thk Pool ?Many of the benevolent residents of | Brooklyn-including among their number, of rourie, several ladies of the city?huve very properly commenc ed operations for the pur|M>iooi alleviating the distresses | of those who, during the coming winter, may require temporary aid, in the way of food, fuel and dotbiug. For the furtherance of thU worthy object, a preliminary pub lic meeting was held on Monday evening last, which wan j well attended, and it is hoped that others will succeed, ; until the condition of the " very poor" will be so far , ameliorated throughout the inclement season, which must necessarily follow tho present singularly mild and i pleasant weather, as to leave no tenanted cellar or gar let without a blazing hearth, besides other comforts, and j provisions to make " the hearts of the distressed rejoice, i and their children to give thanks." In connection with this matter, may be?perhaps not I inappropriately?noticed a controversy, of a somewhat exciting character, which has recently taken place 111 this city, growing out of a dispute between certain 1 butchers, who sought to obtain tho contract for supply ing the Ainu House with meat. The gentleman who was originally engaged to act as purveyor for this esta blishment. agreed to furnish beef at a cent and a half per pound, but the chosen guardians of the unfortunate in mates became dissatisfied with the quality oftbo supply, and the contractor was, therefore, superseded by th? person who offered the next lowest terms. Out of this has sprung a warfare amounting almost to bloodshed, in whicn the Supervisors of the county, and the Superin tendents appointed by them, have como in for their full share of odium and censure. It remains to be seen, how ever, whether or not the sovereign people will sustain them in a movement which has had for its sole and ex clusive object a humane consideration for a class of be ings, who have none to care for them but t^e few who are constituted as public almoners, and whose situation, but for the kind and charitable attention of those indivi duals, would be forlorn, hapless, and destitute indeed. Municipal Court.?An action was tried in this court yesterday, which involves some principles of law of a character highly interesting and important to tradesmen, mechanics, and manufacturers, "and in fact, to " all sorts and conditions" of businessmen. The suit was institu ted by Mr. Horace H. Dow, of Fulton street, against Messrs. Queen and Osman, respectable and enterprising mechanics, to recover the amount of a note accepted by them lor one hundred dollars, in favor of a person named > John W. Tucker, who at that time was engaged in ma- i 1 king window sashes ana blinds. It appeared that the last named individual had contracted a debt with the ; 1 plaintiff, (for paints, oils, white lead, Sec..) and gave him ' tho paper in question, which was made payable when certain articles set forth therein should have been de- j livered. The declaration was on the note, as a bill of : exchange, (including the usual money counts,) and the counsel for the defendants, William Rockwell, Esq., in- j terposed a technical nlea : that according to mercantile usages and law, the document was not of a negotiable character, in consequence of a contingency buiug im- 1 plied, and could only be sued in the name of the origi- i nal promise in a declaration for a special contract. Af- ! ter much discussion between the lawyers, pro and eon, Judge Church decided in favor of a motion.lor non-suit j made by Mr. Rockwell, and the jurors empanelled in j the cause were, thetefore, discharged. Mr. Tucker, . by whom the note was given to Mr. Dow, had his pre mises lately destroyed by fire, at a time when he was transacting a large and flourishing business, and since then, (growing out of that casualty,) he has bad the ad ditional misfortune of being indicted for arson and per

jury, at the instance of the company in whose otlice be effected an insurauce. Exchange of Wives, on Woksf..?We are informed by a gentleman in high authority inthocity of Brook lyn, mat there are now co-habiting together, in unholy concubinage, in Cranberry street, a man anil woman, who have deserted those whom they severally had so lemnly sworn to love and cherish, for the purpose of liv- 1 jug in a beastly state of adultery. This >9 not a solitary i instance of such nelarious proceedings in this moral and religious community, albeit that the city is represented by its too ardent friends as being infinitely superior in good order to any other in the United States. ?Vo record these facts "more in] sorrow than in anger," and without any desire to complain of the innocent credulity of those who believe the place to be without the dark spots which throw a comparative eclipse over other pla ces: and certainly without any intention, or at all events such culpable motives,as have unfairly and ungenerously been attributed to us, of injuring the interest* of proper ty owners, or detracting from the fair fame and just mcr 'ts of this truly flourishing, fortunate, and great city. Kinus County Club.?This newly organized Cricket Club does not promise to obtain much celebrity, even though it may have a long existence, in consequence of certain dissensions, of a decidedly discreditable charac ter, which have taken place among its members, owing to the rejection and " black-balling" of a gentleman who was proposed as a cenfrere of the association, and whose reputation deservedly stands as high in this com munity as one of the best, most worthy, and most exem plary of its citizens. An Idiot Bov Found, and Lost Amain.?On Monday night, a youth about 10 or 12 years of nge, fair com plexion, light hair and eyes ; respectably dressed in blue jacket and trowsers and dark cloth cap, was ob served loitering about Smith street, Myrtle avenue, Brooklyn, for several hours, evidently seeking some body or something. Several persons spoke to him, but his answers were so indistinct and rambling, that no one could understand him, lurther than that he wanted to go home, and that he had not had his dinner ?he had his breakfast with his mother, and went to take a walk, but he would not go in steam boats again.? When asked where he lived, he uttered something like Henry street, whither he was taken,but in that neighbor hood no one appeared to know any thing of him. After a long and fruitless search in different paits, a gentleman conveyed him to thd Coroner's office,but at that late hour, (after twelve o'clock,) oould not gam admission. He was then taken to the Police Station, w here the officer of the night very kindly attended to him, and made up a tem porary bed for him ill the oliice. Vesterday morning he was given in charge of the Coroner, Mr. A. Dikes, whose lady very kindly?and with her usual good nature in all such cases, attended to all his wants ts far as food, washing, Sic., were concerned) but nothing more than what has been stated could be got out of him. Mr. Oakes, after keeping the poor child at his residence several hours, in tho hope that he might be recognised by his parents or friends, placed him in the care of one of the Superintendents of the Alms House, from whom he was, shortly afterwards, culpably permitted to escapo, ami he has not since beon heard of. This is r. subject which ought to receive tiie attention of the public authorities; so Tsr, at all events, as providing a place f<jr the recep tion and detention of juvenile unfortunates, of both sex es, after the usual business hours of the Coroner, whoso hospitable residence, during the entiie day, is ever gra tuitously open to all who may seek there a temporary shelter and t home. Accidents and Offences.?On Saturday last, the son of Mr. Abel Day, residing in Navy street, was, (as is alleged,) so severely beaten, or otherwise maltreated, by a grocer carrying on business in Myrtle avenue, that he has not since been able to use oneot his hands, which was violently wrenched by the aforeseid individual. A woman named Margaret Bennet?who was a short time sinco committed to prison as incoriigibly intemperate ? and whose husband is now in the county jail for similar ly depraved and abandoned practices?made her appear ance in Myrtle avenue on Sunday night last, again in toxicated, and gathering areund her a host of idle and blackguard boys. She has since been sent to her old quarters. The negro, Henry Anderson, who was men tioned on Sunday last, as having hail part of his nose bit ten oil'by William Jackson, has had an attack of lockjaw in consequence, and his lile is despaired ol. Should he die, Jackson will be amenable to a charge of manslaugh ter. A well behaved, industrious, and sober young man, named Walker, (in the employ ol Messrs. Cochran St Co., the extensive furriers of Brooklyn,) was yesterday reduced to the wretched necessity ot making a com plaint against his wife for being an habitual drunkard.? After being kindly lectured and advised hy one of the police magistrates, she was permitted to go homo -, before doing which,however, she voluntarily went to the office ol George Hall, Esq., and there signed the temperance pledge. Officer M'Cormick arrested a man named Tho mas Curo, of Crow Hill, on the complaint of a Mrs. Margaret Conolly, who charged him with having as saulted and beaten her. It appeared that a difficulty had taken place between them, arising from adi.iputed bar gain concerning some cows, and lie was discharged on payment of costs. Mary Large, a petite and pretty wo man, was charged with the very small offence of stealing from Mr. Jeremiah Peck of Columbia street, a cloak and pair of pantaloons. She was taken into custody by Mr. Inspector Reynolds, who was severely beaten by a set of fellows at the corner of Hicks and Pacific streets, whose object was to rescue the prisoner. She was com mitted to prison for ninety days. Movement* of Traveller*. There was an unprecedented influi of arrivals at the principal hotels yesterday, from which the following are selected.

Fanners1 Citab?American Institute. Yesterday being the third Tuesday of the month, in complianoe with the customary regulation* of the Clnb, the farmer*, members, and atranger*, (invited to attend,) aaiembled iu more than utnal number*, the subjects of discussion, forming to agriculturiiti, the solution at thi* period of the year, of an important problem?" The oare of cattle in winter," and to tne cultivator* of the Mulber ry tree, the no les* interesting topic of the "iJountie* on Silk." The meeting wa* organized by the unanimou* *elec- i tion of Mr. Worth, a* chairman. The uiual hour of de sultory conversation wa* occupied by the reading oi h paper upon the subject of electricity, in promoting and , expediting vegetation; wherein the origin of the doc ! trine of electric fluid connected with vitality, was traced hack as far as the years 1747 and 174(1, when by electri- , lying a 'bottle of the balsam of Perli, it* fli*t practical ! benefits were developed, in a caie that had baffled all j medical experiment*. The theory had been exemplified i also, in tho satisfactory result* of the sy*tum,as applied i upon the plant* in the Cheswick Garden* in England.? The same system has been adopted also, with nearly equal success in this country; but the Chairman conn- 1 dered, that where it failed, the fault arose from the dose not being suiliciently powerful. Mr. Meig* suggested j the necessity, during the present railroad mania, of com pelling the contractor* ot railways to plant at each aide ' ol the respective lines, apples, pears, and fruit trees of | all kinds, at the ratio of fifty tree* to the acre, and forti- | lied his opinion on the value it would produce to the young and the old, and the celebrity it Would en*ure from the knowledge of the enterprise in foreign countries. The Chairman threw this recommenda tion overboard, by the no less summary, but sensi ble remark, that the trees failing across the road accidentally, might be productive of sad and seri ous consequences. No member seemed to resist this " argumenlum ad hominum." Ml'. Meig* then read a let ter from a farmer upon Long Island . which stated that he possessed a cow that produced nineteen pound* of butter in the weak. There was another letter read from Mr. Eusign, of Connecticut, on his method of making cheese. He described having tried his experiments up- I on AO cheeses, in 60 different ways. The method most successful was that which forms with dairy farmers, the ' ordinary process being a trivial improvement. A letter was read from Mr. Thorburn, describing a Sago palm, ' supposed to be 7r> years old. Extracts were read from foreign papers, relative to the extent and probable reme I dy for tne prevailing potato disease. Col. Clarke, gave a very rational method, by which the disease might bu controlled, if not averted. Solutions of lime and chlo rine, in various forms?ashes and lime also applied in va rious stages of the vegetation, must command at least a fair experiment. At this st*ge of the business, a petition to the Honora ble Legislature of the State, praying for the establish ment of an "Agricultural College and Experimental School.'' was submitted for the signatures of members, and received, of those who were present, the majority. Mr. Billings, the inventor of a llax and hemp machine, furnished tne Club with a statement of his procoss lor pulling, curing, and rotting fiax, by which tne old sys tem is superceded.' His plan is, pulling the fiax green, exposing it to the air, soaking it for three days, setting it on scaffolds, and drying it in a close room: the moisture is thus forced to the surface. Mr. Billings recommends the sowing three bushels to the acre, instead of one. He asserts that the process of rotting and bleaching is simul taneous, and in shoe making flax, loses 25 per cent. The hour being exhausted, that portion .of the regular , subject of discussion, "Bounties on Silk,'' was now intro duced, when Mr. Van Epps rose and stated that the act limiting the bounties on silk to five years, would expire neat June. This act provided a compensation ot fifteen cents upon every pound of cocoons, and fifty cents for every pound of reeled silk. One bushel of cocoons would weigh from 10 to 1-2 pounds. This was a conside rable encouragement to the culture of silk, which would subside unless prompted by a renewal of the bounty, as people held back from the speculation until a movement > was made in the form of a petition from the New York Farmers' Club to the Legislature. A member thought that a bounty extending to only five years was not a sufficient encouragement,and recommended ten or fifteen years to be the minimum askod for. This produced a long and tedious discussion, which resulted in the appointment of a committee, consisting of Messrs. Van Epps, Skinner ! and Meigs to draft a petition on the subject of the Legis- j lature, and submit it for the adoption of the next meet- ! ing. A letter was here read from Mr. Ward, an eminent 1 mechanic, expressive of his opinion of the indisputable merits of Mr. Billings' flax and hemp machine, which.he carefully inspected at the request of Mr. Wakeman. The subject of the "Care of Cattle" wa* postponed un- > til the uext meeting, when that and "the cultivation of the Mullmry Tree ' will be discussed. And upon the motion of a member, that on all occasions, the advertised subject should not be deferred, and that the sittings of the club, should not hereafter extend beyond two hours, nn adjournment was announced to the tirst Tuesday in December. Worcestkr, Ma**., Nov. 17, 184o. Lectures by the Great- Unshot? Water a la Croton? Our Town. Considerable excitement is at preaont felt at this place in regard to the lecture* and assertions of the celebrated Paine, the " Great Unshot," as he is familiarly termed.? I attended a lecture of his last night, in which he exhi bited a Daguerreotype representation of the moon,which beats Locke'* discoveries all hollow. There is no doubt at all that Taine is a most wonderful experimentalist in science, and I should not be surprised if his experiments do not bring strange thing* to light. He will shortly, I understand, deliver his lecture iu New Vork, when you can have an opportunity of judging for yourself. Pro bably. tou, he will bo shot in Gotham, preparatory to his exhibition, to get up the steam. The project of introducing water from an elevated point, by means of pipes anu hydrant*, as in Philadel phia and New Vork, ha* been very successful in this place; and Yankee thiift ha* even turned the bottom of the pond into gold?the weeds and gra?* being now in process of manufacture into good brown paper, at one of the mills. Accidents in thi* place, upon the railroad, occur al most weekly. Two men have been killed during tho last few days, and little is said aboHt it. In fact, the town is in a flourishing condition,and stren uous efforts are made to elect sterling representative* to uphold monopoly. When the next shooting comes off, 1 will let you know. Mexican Affairs.?The U. S. ship St. Mary's, Commander Sands, arrived at Pensacola, as we learn from the last Democrat, on Wednesday last, and auchored outside ot the Island of Santa Rosa. The St. Mary's is diroct from Vera Cruz, with important dis patches for the Government, which were brought to the Navy Yard late at night by one of the ship's cutters, and thenco forwarded to the city early the following morn ing, by the U. S. steamer General Taylor. The St. Ma ry's ?ailed from Vera Crux in company with Her B. M. snip Kurydice, bound to Havana, with the French Minis ter on board. It is reported by this arrival, that Commodore Connor, with the whole ol the squadron, was to sail from Vera Cruz for Pensacolak in four days aftsr tho St. Mary's left, but this was given as rumor which could uot be authen tically announced. ] We also learn that Francis Grice, Esq., U. S. Naval Architect, arrived there on Monday last, from Washing ton, to examine and report upon the condition of the fri gate Potomac, and that he is of opinion that the leak is no wise dangeroua, or rather not immediately *o, and think* fho can safely make the passage to Norfolk, to be docked for repairs.?Mobile Herald, Nov.

I'arhervt. I'arshalt ? This was a long and somewhat complicated case of trover, involving three parties Parker, I'arshall, and Cantwell.

Regarding the value of the property, there was a deal of conflicting testimony, it was, however, clearly established that more had been already paid than the en tire amount of property was worth. , The counsel on both sides having introduced their opi nion and arguments, the Court charged the jury, who retired.

This juror was set aside. Challenge true. His Honor took occasion to say that he considered the effort to force men into the Jury box under the present circumstances, as in every way calculated to produce a bad effect upon the community. if they had been making an effort to select men out of the best inlormed circles, then indeed he should not regret the time that had been consumed; but the indiscriminate selection of the citizens from tho bye ways and hlgh-wavs of the city, many of whom were evidently selected from the most ignorant classos of the population, he would ask, if a jury were sworn out of such a class, what confidence could be placed in their verdict? Provided they found against the prisoner. would it not be said that she was sacrificed to public cla mor/ and if acquitted, would not other motives be impu ted/ He wonld ask, therefore, did they consider it of any use to go on further and force men into the jury box, merely to hear hundrods of their fellow citizens express an opinion unfavorable to the prisoner ? Counsel for piijoiier remarked that th-s Court had power to interfere anJ stop the trial, without the consent of either party. The Court had looked inttf the question and found that th? record should be withdraVn by statute ; and that on last night, wh>n he bad intima'ed the wishes of the Court to have that coursn taken, it W.?s insisted upon by counsel lor the prosecution that the sheriff should go into the very suburbs of the county and su.mmon indis criminately every man, no matter how ignorant he might be.
