NEW YORK HERALD. |\i:?v York, Tlnnnduy. IVovcmlwr i7, 1845. ANOTHER EXPRESS FROM BOSTON. It is our intention to run another special express from Boston, on the arrival of the Cambria. If wind and wea ther, and all otter circumstances, 'are favorable, we mean to beat our contemporaries moat infamously, as our amiable Fourierite neighbor would say. The next intelligence will be of a very important character. While we are thus preparing to ait'ord every facility to the commercial community, in getting the foreign news to this city, the government is exertiug itself to de spatch the foroign mails to Boston. It has been determin ed to send the mail, for the steamer Britannia, on Sunday uext, by an express, over tho Long Island railroad, to leave Whitehall, South Kerry, at 3 ^o'clock P. M.?the mails to close at half past 1 o'clock. It is said that cars will be attached, for passengers lor the steamer, and others. We shall issue an Extra Edition of the Htrald, on Sunday, with tho latest intelligence from all parts of this continent, and especially from Washington, to goby this express. Mr. Message, In America anilKuropr. Mr. Polk's forthcoming Message is destined to produce a great sensation in Europe; more than any similar document, from any President, since the organization of the government. This opinion is expressed in all the foreign journals which have been received by the last steamer from Liverpool. They are looking with the greatest anxiety and dee|>est interest, for the position which Mr. Polk will assume on this.imporiant document. It is the Oregon question, principally, which creates this im pression in Europe. England, from the plebeian to the patrician, is watching .with the most intense anxiety the course and progress of this country; and particulaily she looks with an almost instinctive dread to the declarations now awaited from the White Mouse at Washington. On the Continent of Europe, the same interest is manifested on this subject, Ever since the termi nation of the last great European war, a feeling of rivalry andjealousy has existed all over the Continent against England, as well on account of her monopo lies in commerce and manufactures, as for her poli tical power; while her recent wars and conquests in the East, have alarmed all Europe and the common wealth of kingdoms. They are consequently glad, and sympathize with a nation such as the United .States, possessed of the same elements as England i n the character of its population, and transeendent ly superior to England in the physical resources of national wealth, extent of territory, compactness of dominion, and probable destiny. Wc entertain no doubt that the Message of Mr. Polk will correspond with these sentiments j and will body out a (*>hey such as will astonish England, and surprise Europe. We have the best reasons for holding these opinions upon the course of the new President?not so much from the twad dlings and eternal chatter of the government organ under the regime of the highly respectable old woman who manages it, but from the character of Mr. Polk, and the information we have received from various quarters of the position he will take. There are rumors, indeed, of strenuous attempts having been made to induce him to moderate the tone of the Message on the Oregon question, and thus to sink the spirit of that document. There is no doubt that the British government has instructed its Minister at Washington to seek for some modi fication of the position assumed on the Oregon question, in tlif Inaugural Address,' since an addi tional exposition and declarations of the same prin ciples in the forthcoming document, would embar rass still more the British government in its foreign relations, and only increase the general embarrass ment in which she is now involved in commercial, as well as in political matters. There is a dread? an alarm on this point in England, and this it is which is believed to have been the cause of those frequent cabinet councils which have lately been held, and not the question ot opening tne ports. Similar feelings and, sentiments are exhibited by the press in England, and there is ail extreme sen sibility shown by all the London journals, in relation to the developments of American opinion which have been published in the New York Htrald; a sensitiveness quite characteristic of the general teeling in that empire. In the columns of the Iftw York Htrald, during all the last summer, and indeed on every occasion since our existence, our great study liat- been to promulgate and represent cor rectly the sentiments of the American people, and o' this great Kepublic, in respect both to foreign and domestic topics. On no occasion, within the ten years ol our existence, have we ever made a mis take on this head, and hence the importance given to all the views coming from the New York Herald, by ioreign journals. It is true, a feeble and ridiculous effort has been made in London and Paris, as well as lure in New York, by stockjobbers and debauched who follow dancing women round the world, to injure the New York //em/d and underrate its cha. racter as the established index of public opinion in this hemisphere. But our predictions on every great and imj>ortant matter in politics, commerce,or religion, have too often been verified by the event to render it possible for us to be shaken or hurt by the puny_eflorts of th" lazaroni of society in Europe or in this country. We have cause to be fully sa" istied w r eputation we have acquired, and our future care will be to deserve a continuance of the same public opinion. Thus it is?Mr. I'olk's message .therefore,will, ac cording lo all accnunts, produce a greater sensation in Europe than has been seen on any former occa sion; and hence the necessity of the greater care which should be given to its composition and princi* pies, in the present crisis of this republic Anti-Rentism.?There is some difference of opin ion as to the effect which the Governor's message will have on the progress of anti-rentism. Many suppose that the clemency extended by the Govern or, will tend to restore quiet and peace to the anti rent districts, and others think that it will only add fuel to the flame. Our own opinion in the matter is decided The outrages of the anti-renters, and the punishment inflicted, will teach them more pru dence in future; but the spirit of anti-rentism is as deep, and more determined than ever It has as sumed an undying and permanent hold on the impu tation of the feudal districts, and their policy will be to carry out their principles by |>olitical action. We have no doubt that they will succeed in carrying out their purposes, and the landlords will get abetter price by selling out their lands as soon as possible. The corruption of the other parties, and the bar gains made with them, will give the anti-renters success. Affairs in Memphis.?The great South Western ' onvention has adjourned ?hte die. It was in ses sion four days, and closed just in the nick of time It had too strong a political asj>ect to effect much.? We believe that the shortness of the session, pre vcnting any loolisli outbreak of political feeling, and the mere recommendation to Congress, will ,iave some influence upon those now assembling in Washington ; but to what extent, it is impossible to 11 All these tariff, railroad, sugar, and cotton conventions possess one passable feature, and (hat is about all?they tend to exhibit the resources of the sections of the country in which they are held. Fashionable Intkluuencs.?1The splendid Capt. ilynders, who has been honored with the gobnqutt of the "lion Giovanni" ofjtlie democracy, opens the t ishionable season in this city, with a spJendid ball, on Friday evening. We understand that it will be quite a gay scene, and nil the new dances of the d.iy will lie performed on the occasion?the Polka, Muourka, and various other dances. Several stated ?1 H.ich?rs of the gospel will be present, probably. Tut Preskot Corporation ? It is acknowledged on all hands, and conceded even by the friends of the party in |>ower, that the present city government is the most inefficient and at the same time the m< si extravagant that we have ever had, while the abuses which were complained of under former adminu trations have increased beyond all precedent, and the taxation has increased in the same ratio. As an in stance of the apathy which has characterized them in every thing except taxation, we will mention two instances. Karly in the year, an attempt was rrade to burn the old alms house in the Park, and lately the public buildings on Randall's Island were con sumed by the torch of the incendiary; and in neither instance was the slightest eflort made having in view the detection of the offenders, either by the offering of a reward, which might stimulate the police to exert themselves, or in any other man ner?but the Corporation, with the greatest noncha lance, deliberately appropriated an additional sum of $150,0<)<) to rebuild them. As an instance of the in efficiency, let our citizens look at the way in which the street paving has been mismanaged. Take Broadway, the iaost crowded thoroughfare in the city. There has hardly been a day during the past summer that this street has not been more or less obstructed by the Corporation artists. For five or six weeks, the block from Park Place to Murray street was entirely shut up ; and to the passer by, the object of those engaged in reparing it appeared to be to keep it as long as they possibly could impassable See the condition it is in at present?enveloped in one mighty cloud of dust from Trinity Church to Broad street, causing immense damage to the costly goods that are for sale in that street, and rendering a promenade through it attended with the risk of loss of one's sight. In street cleaning, their inefficiency is likewise apparent. While the principal streeets, Broad way, Chambers street, ani others, of the same class, are occasionally swept, such streets as Orange, Thames, Cedar, &c., are altogether un conscious of being visited by the Corporation brooms. At this present time, the gutters on each side of Thames street, are entirely choked up, and the stream of water which, at one time, flowed where the gutters used to be, has now taken a course directly through the middle. Is it not time for all the residents ol this city, to throw aside politics, and all party spirit, and unite in electing men to car ry on our city government, who will be guided only by the wishes of the people, and a regard for econ omy ! ? Polly Bodink.?The case of this unfortunate wo man occupied the time and attention of our Court of Oyer and Terminer for the last three weeks to no purpose; for yesterday, the Court, and the counsel on each side, arrived at the conclusion, that it was not possible to obtain, in this co'int^, a jury of twelve men, who had not expressed or entertained an opi nion as to her innocence; and they therefore thought it best to let the case go over for the term?have the venue changed, and the trial take place in another county. It was the opinion of every rational man, that such would be the result, and the better plan would have been for the counsel of the prisoner to have acquiesced in the opinion which His Honor the Judge expressed many da/s since?that he did not think a jury could be obtained in this county and which has proved to be correct?and have thus saved many hundreds of individuals, who were call ed from their business pursuits to attend as jurors, serious inconvenience and embarrassment, and have saved this county some ?2,000 or ?'3,000. As it is, this case has, 'on this last attempt to obtain trial, cost our county at least #5,000. Oregon?Caleb Cashing.?This statesman has taken his stand on the Oregon question, and is in favor of the American claim to the whole of that territory j and he has shown his sagacity, while Mr. Everett and Mr. Webster have taken the other side. Any American statesman, who does not take his po sition for the whole of that territory, will undoubt edly be stranded, and cast ashore. Mr. Cushing is destined to hold the same inlluence that Daniel Webeter formerly held ;n this country Dancing?The Polka.?M'lle. Desjardina has opened her dancing classes lor the season, at her residence, No. 74 Leonard street, where she teach es ladies to dance the Polka, and other fashionable dances, in a lady-like style?not the common Polka, but the Polka as it is performed in Paris and other European cities. Six Years of Prosperity?If no difficulty take place between England and the United States on the Oregon question, we will have for the next six years a continued prosperity?a sort of rising tide in prices and in values?and fortunes may be made to any extent, provided our domestic and foreign poli tics remain in a quiescent state. Arrival of the Anti-Renters at Sino Sino.? John Van Steenburgh and Edward O'Conner, the Anti-Renters, whose sentence has just been com muted, reached Sing Sing in safety about ten o'clock yesterday morning. Late from Porto Caf,bllo.?The Carracaa ar rived at Philadelphia on Tuesday, with advices from Porto Cabello to the 8th inst. A letter dated 8th, says :? Still favored with a continuance of line weather, with the exception of a few partial showers in different part* of the interior, which tend to enliven operations in pro duce.

Fatal Affray.?A latal affray took place in the bar-room ol the St Louis Exchange lant night, about M o'clock, by which 1 aptain Joseph Carson came to his death from the effects of a pistol hall fired at him by Mr. T. M. Wadswonh. The deceased survived but a minute or two alter the shot was fired, the hall having gone directly through his heart. Mr Wadsworth immediate, ly surrendered himself to custody of the sheriff, who took him to prison to await a preliminary investigation jfl?r*"ecor,lsr Genois. There had been a previous difficulty between the parties, and report has it that ( apt. ( . had threatened the life of Mr W If. (). Pira l/une, IBM ini'ont. Thmtdctli. Pum.?A very fashionable audience assembled lait evening at the Park, to witness the representation of Slicriden'a celebrated and sterling comedy of the " Ri vals." Mr. Placide's personation of the character of the phlegmatic Sir Au'thony, was most excellent. Mr?. Ver non'* Mr*. Malaprop, was, a* usual, admirable, and eli cited hearty and well merited applause. The Lydia Lan guish of Mrs. Bland is one of the cleverest and most charming delineations we have witnessed lor a long time. It was characterized by archness, vivacity and wit, and will add to the well deserved reputation the fair actress has already won. The whole performance passed of)' with relet. This evening, the new coraedy of " Timo works Wonders," au4 the "Agreeable Surprize," are presented. We hope to see a brilliant and fashionable house. Buwerv Theatre.?The performances last night at the Bowery, drew together a very full house, and were received with hearty applause. Mr. Hill, as Seth Slope, was inimitably funny, and excited very general mirth j throughout. Mr. Scott, in " Wallace," was likewise 1 very successful, and was ably and emphatically well ' sustained by the great strength of tiie company attached to this Theatre. Cony and Blsnchard, in one of their melo-dramatic pieces, concluded the evening's enter tainment*. By invitation of Manager Jackson, the " Washington Ureys," under the command of Captain McAdam, from Philadelphia, escorted by the politeness of a portion of our " Independent Guards." in citizen's dress, paid a visit to this house, and occupied a conspicuous position ju tbe eyes of the aurrounding audience. Ols Bill's Farewell Concert.?Wo arrived at the Tabernacle but a few minutes after seven, and found it already tilled to such a degree, that a seat of any k ind was with difficulty to be got. Four thousand persons, it is computed, were present to hear for the last time, the soit, sweet tones of Vie Bull ard his violin, for it is hard to separate them. We never saw a more gratified au dience, or heard in one night's concert, so much that was calculated to gratify and enchant. Ole Bull richly me rits the reputation he has acquired. Never before were such sounds heard from the violin in New York ; under the bow of Mr. Bull it was made to give tones almost equal to the tenderest and most.delicate strains of the human voice. The children of the Institute for the Blind were all present at Mr. Bull's invitation, and as a return for this kindness to them, they united in singing a pleas ing chorus, which added, if it were possible, to tho rich entertainment of the eveuing Miss Northall ought not to be forgotten for her share in the tuneful ngale. She seems destined to become a tavorite with New Yorkers, and her fine singing, and modest, yot self-possessed de portment, seems to render her deserving to be so. At the conclusion, Mr. Bull was greeted with rapturous ap plause, and several bouquets were thrown towards him. Apparently overwhelmed and literally bowed down by the weight of public applause, he came forward to re spond to the loud calls ot four thousand admirers of his skill. Taking up a nosegay which had bMD thrown to him, in his hand, and bowing low to the audience, he thus laconically, yet in tne most feeling manner, bid farewell to New York : " Ladies and Gentlemen These flowers will fail, but the spirit which gives them will never fade away from my grateful heart." Tremendous cheering followed this little spccch, and the immense crowd, satisfied and pleased, departed. F.thiofean Serenaders.?These inimitable persona- 1 tors ot the negro oharacter give another concert at Palmo's Opera House this evening. It is hardly neces sary lor us to say to those who have not yet heard their boautiful strains, that they will be well recompensed bv I paying them a visit. Their stay with us this time will tie short, and the sooner those who have not yet heard them, avail themselves of the prosent opportunity to hear them, the better. Christian Hubf.p.?This celebrated violoncellist gave a soilit d'arlistts, on Tuesday evening last; and his per formances, on the occasion, were represented, in the Courier of yesterday, and we believe coirectly, as being wonderful, entitling him to a high rank among the most distinguished musical artists. M. Huberwas born near Strasburg, in France, and was, for several years, a mem ber of the Conttrrafire in Paris, where he was awarded tbe first premium for musical composition, and for the delicacy with which ho plays on his instrument; like wise, he was presented by the government with a splen did instrument as a proof of the manner in which they estimated his merits. When the great masters, Rode and llaillot, were in Paris, they witnessed M. Huber's performances, and they pronounced him to bo without a rival, in the classical style. M. Huber gave lessons in the Comervatoire, where it is customary for each teach er to have only one class for his instrument. M. Hfiber's talents were no highly appreciated by the directors, Messrs. Cherubini and Beicha, that they requested him to give lessons on the piano also, and lie was the only exception to the custom. In France and Germany, whore M. Huber is known, hiN composi tion is looked upon as being perfect, and his style beautifully classic. This celebrated player will give his first Concert in this city to morrow evening, at the " Apollo Itooms, " und he will be -.u&isted, 011 the occasion, by Mrs. Mott, Jr., who lately made such a successful drbut; and, by Mr. Kyle, who is well known to be a distinguished muiician , also, by Mr. Gibert.? There will probably he a fashionable assemblage brought together on the occasion. Okrma* Ortni.-We are happy in being able to announce to the musical world of New York, that an arrangement has, at length, been satisfactorily conclud ed, by which all the difficulties are removed, which heretofore itood in the way of the appearance, among us, of the Uerman Opera Company. We are informed that the company will bring out Weber's splendid Opera of Der Freischutz, on the second MonJay of December next, at I'almo s Opera House, when a great treat may be expected by the lovers of the " Art Divinu." In ail dition to the trouiie announced, there is unother line ar tist engaged, ant! coming from Philadelphia. Oratorio of St. Paul.? Mendelssohn's magnificent Oratorio of "St.I'aul" will be performed at the Tabernacle tbis evening, under the direction of .Mr. Oeo. Loder. Mrs. Valentine Mott, Jr. makes her first appearance on this occasion in oratorio, and will undoubtedly add fresh laurels to her already brilliant reputation. Thechorus ses will be sustained by about one hundred and fifty la dies and gentlemen, and the orchestra will be full and effective. A fashionable and crowded house will con gregate to witness the chef d'ttitvre of Mendelssohn. N. II. Bannister, the successful author of "Put nam," "Itookwood," "Champion of Liberty," end other established plays of great merit, is soon to receive a benefit at the Bowery. We are constrained to acknow ledge this a flattering compliment, not only merited but well deserved. Mr. Jackson is a most liberal minded man, and this among his contributed acts,will not escape the favor ol the putHic, or impair the confidence of those deserving his attentions. Tkmfi.kto.i.?This gentleman gave a concert on Tues day evening in Brooklyn, which was attended by a large anil fashionable audience He also gave one in N'ewaik last evening, and goes to Albany to-day, where he will delight aM lovers ot melody and music. Lkotold Dr. Mevbr.? We announced the postpone ment of this gentleman's concert in Boston, on account of the indisposition of the great artiste We learn it is caused by an injury which he has received on the muscle of the fourth finger of the right hand. The Keans are pluving o most brilliant and successful cngagement at the Howard Athenaeum, Boston. Their houses have been crowded to excess on every occasion, and the utmost enthusiasm has every where prevailed. On Tuesdav evening the "Lady of Lyons'' was enacted, in which play tho Keans arc without rival*. Mr. Joseph Burke gives his first concert in Albany this evening. The St. ( hailcs Theatre, New Orleans, opened for the season on the 18th instant. Mr. Booth was to appear in his favorite character of Sir Kdward Mortimer, in the "Iron Chest." An excellent stock company is on gaged. Miss Mary Duff was to play Mrs. Haller, in tho "Stran ger,'' at the American Theatre, New Orleans, on the luth instant. Madame Augusta is drawing crowded houses at the Walnut, Philadelphia. Last evening "La Bayadere" was announced, in which Madame Augusta created a great sensation here. Common Council.

A resolution authorizing the pure has* of a supply of flour for present use wai adopted ny the Board I'rttenlmrnlt of the Oiand Jury. Two presentments of the grand jtny in the Court ol Sessions, during the October term, were presented, and tefeired to the Com mittens on charity and Alms, and Police, Watch and Prison.

City Intelligence. > Fracas ii? Wall iTtm-^Ui'-vr amono the Vot piu Dcmoi'ract.?The "bull*" and tlie " bears" of Wall street ware mo?t agreeably surprUed ye*terday 1 afternoon by an interesting fracas between the llou. Alexander Well*,member elect of the Legislature fiom this city, ami the Hon Kernsndo Wood, ex-member of i ongress. These " shining lights mut on the pari' near the Manhattan Bank, about one o'clock, wheu Mr. Wells immediately produced from the recesses of a capacious pocket, a beautiful and unique article, known in common ptirlance as a cowhide, and proceeded to apply it to the shoulders of hie potitical friend. The stock jobbers rushed from their desks and bargain*?clerks dropped their pens and left their books to take care of themselves ?old apple women deserted their stands, while little boys utol* their fruit-a cowhiding was about taking place in Wall street, and all were determined to get a sight ol the parties. The parties clinched and fell, and ! their friends then stepped forward and sepa rated them. We are informed that this attack by Mr. Wells grew out of a letter Which appeared, a few days since, in the Washington Constitution, re flecting on his private and political character, and which he supposed Mr. Wood to have written. The full ex planation of the affair will probably be given in a few days. Broadway.? Is it not n delightf'il ploco? a glorious promenade ! The wit, wisdom, and beauty of (iotham, here love to congregate. The philosopher, the poet, the statesman, the merchant and the artisan, all find food for enjoyment. Kvery nation is here ably represented, and the inhabitant of almost any country on which tho sun shines can meet a friend or acquaintance in a morning stroll. A capital opportunity is therefore presented for the study of character, and the observing man finds much that is instructive, as woll as amusing and entertaining, (ireat improvements have taken place within the last few months iu this elegant street. Magnificent buildings have been and are in progress of erection?the windows of splendid warehouses have been decked with rich and costly fabrics, brought from far-distant climes, as well as the productions of American skill and ingenuity. The most frequented dry-goods stores?the best bonnot mukers, Uress-makers, tailors, hatters, boot-makers, per turners, are found in Broadway. Some of the toy and confectioner's shops are getting ready for Christmas and New Year's, and around their windows little boys and girls, with mammas and papas, arn assembled, eyeing curiously the tempting and fanciful displays within. It has become almost useless to visit galleries of paintings, and exhibitions of sculpture, as the amateur in the fine arts can see, at any time, through panes of glass, and in front of artists studio*, which here abound, some of the fluent specimens of modern art. Broadway is, in foot, the great curiosity shop of New York?but the humanity with which it is peopled, is, af ter all, the most worthy of attention. OreAt black eyes, swimming in their own etherial essence?mild bluo ones, melting you with their softness und tenderness ? the proud and towering form of the wife and mother? the sylph-like figure of some blushing maiden?the arti ficial beauty, and .the simple maid of nature?all are here. Yesterday morning was bright and beautiful, and Broadway looked likoa rich, blooming flowor garden.? If we could but get rid of the omnibuses, the pleasure attendant on a morning walk, would undoubt edly be much increase.I. Can nothing be doiie to abate this disagreeable and dangerous nuisance ! Installation.?The Rev. Dr. Potrs, D. I)., was last evening installed pastor of the Presbyterian Church in University Place. The exercises were commenced by prayer and singing. The Rev. Mr. Milledoler preached un appropriate sermon, on a text, which he selected from II Corinthians, 5th chapter, and 20th verse. In the course of his sermon, he dilated on the character of the early member* of the Christian Church, anil the duties of ministers in general. On the part of the Presbytery, certain questions were then put to Dr. Potts, as to wheth er lie accepted tho call, and whether he would conduct his ministry with meekness, humility, Sic.; and on an swering in the atfiimative, certain questions were thon | put to the congregation present whether they would accept him as their Pastor, provide for his comfortable ) maintenance, listen to his counsel, and aid him in promo ting the great principles of Christianity ; which were I likewise answered affirmatively. The Rev. James W. Alexander, then, on the part ol the Presbytery, deliver ed a charge to the Rev.

After this charge was concluded, tho Rev.

It was owned by Mr. Samuel Thompson, ana occupied at the time of the fire, by Mr. Conrad Abelman. It was en tiiely destroyed, but most of the furniture was snved. Although there were many engines present, yet they were of no use, in consequence of the scarcity of water. Had there been any the building would have been saved. Insurance fiBOOO.

Among the animal* were ftve or six "Yoikshire Blanks," the greatest ninrikter horses pftthapa ever seen In this country. The process of landing them was somowbat interesting, and excited a great deal of curiosity. They were carried between decks, and only a tempoiary bulk head separating them fiom the steer age passenger*. Ladies' Faie.?We would direct tho attention of our readers to the ladies' fair which is being held at the Minerva Rooms in Broadway. The piaiseworthy pur poses to which the receipts will be applied, (the redeem ing of the debt of Transfiguration Church) recommend the fair to the notice of the well disposed. Mtsteeiocs Affair.?At a late hour last night, a young female was observed, by a policeman, to como out ola house of ill-fame in Thomas street, and proceed towards West Broadway, crying as she went along. The policeman, presuming that something was wrong, followed and accosted her, and inquired the cause of her grief She, however, paid no regaid to the interrigatories of tho policeman, and pushed onwards towards the Nonh River, the officer following for tho purpose of watching her movements. On arriving at the foot of Duane street, she threw off her shawl, and would doubt less soon have committed herself to a watery grave, when the officer sprang forward, took her in charge, and conducted her to the Fifth Ward Station House, where she was locked up in a cell with some others. During the course of the night, she made an attempt to commit suicide by suspending herself to tho frame work of the cell. Being discovered by the occupants, an alarm was raised, and a guard was placed over her.

At that moment she wa? seen by Mr. James I) Strong to throw the money from her person. Mr. Strong, how ever, picked it up, and Mrs. Karless identified the purse and money as her property. We know this woman to be an old pickpocket; she was sent to th? penitentiary for threo months, for nicking the pocket of a lady in Kulton market, last fall. Mrs. Bell, of 4fl Vesey street, hail her purse stolen last Saturday week, containing $106, in the same place, and recognises this woman as the person who utood close by her in the market just before ihe missed it.

Si,ilt Prison Staliitici. It appears, from information politely furnished us by Owen Brenan, Ksq., that Irom the 17th of October, to the 34th instant, i4 prisoners were discharged from the State Prison at Sing Sing, their respective terms of imprisonment havi.ig expired, 8 were pardoned, and died There now remain in that prison 790 males, and fil females, milking a total of 851.

Tho ca*n will bo resumed to-morrow. Brooklyn City Intelligence. T?ie N*vai. Seio ick UuuminD -We learn from I good authority, that thirty-four laborers employed in the Brooklyn Navy Yard were, a lew days since, discharged by on'er of some dignitary attached to the establishment, and that their places were supplied by men who had (hipped ax kxiIg::. on board the North Carolina. Such a high-handed measure is not only disgraceful to the navul ( service, but, moreover, is unjust to the poor tueu who hud engaged to do the hard duty required of them for the wretched and inadequate compensation of one dollar per day. By what ri^htor authority, or under what law, the authors of this iniquitous and disgraceful proceeding entered into such a compact, we are at a loss to ascer tain; and we have some doubt whether the arrangement is as much intended for one of national economy as for personal aggrandisement and gain. Thb New ('it* IIai.l ?Gamaliel King, Esq., the ar chitect of the splendid structure which iilo be erected for the City Hall of Brooklyn, has politely furnished this oltlco with a very line drawing of the elevation and ground plan of this edifice. The contract* for every department of the building having been fully entered into, workmen will commence on Monday next to re move the walls which have so long stood in ghastly commemoration if the folly and stupidity of the found- | ers ; and iu the year 1817 the people or Brooklyn will ' have a building which will do infinite credit, alike to the i enterprise and public spirit of its citizens, and to the | professional skiil and chaste judgment of thoso who { have been instrumental in biinging thia long contested and much vexed project to a finul close. .Melancholy.?We are exceedingly sorry to learn | that the lady of Alderman Campbell, who was some I time ago so much injured by the accidental explosion of I a camphine lamp, as then seriously to ondanger her life, but who subsequently was considered as under success ful medical treatment, has recently relapsed into a state which renders her recovery exceedingly doubtful. Last evening she was unable to speak, and it is feared that | the symptoms which she now indicates will ultimately | he fatal. The unfortunate sufferer is constantly and as- | sid-iously attended by Dr. Garrison, one of the most | eminent, skilful, and experienced physicians iu the coun ty, and it is now probable that otner gentlemen equally celebrated in surgery, physiology and materia medica, will be consulted, for tho purpose ol saving a truly valuable life. The Grand Ball ok the Terpsichore Society.? This assembly, on Tuesday evening, was the most crowded that has met in Brooklyn since the commence ment of tho season sacred to those who love to " trip It on the light fantastic toe;" and, hut forthe accidental and unwelcome presence of a few indiscreet and intemperate individuals?of canaile notoriety?the boll might be de scribed as one of a really splendid character. A brighter galaxy of fair stars than was presented by some of the fairest and most beautiful girls of King's county, has never before appeared, and their attendants generally? in orderly, quiet and correct deportment?could not well have been excelled by the huhiluts of the best conducted and mast fashionable ball rooms in Christendom. Tho proprietor of tho saloon must, however, hereafter make better and more ample provision for his guests in the supper room, or he will inevitably lose both patronago and caitr. Among the most lovely aiid amiable of the la dies present?besides being the most elegantly and ap propriately attired?wero Miss Henrietta M?dell, Misses Catharine and Charlotte 8?th, the Misses P?u, (who were acccompaniod by their gentlemanly step-bro ther, Mr. T bly,) Miss Matilda S? kes, Misses Cawlire and Emily I) son, Miss Kmily F der, Mrs.'and Miss Chad-k, Miss Jane B? sail, mid last, (though not least,) Miss Angeline Gil?e. Lotharios were there enough to make a legion; but the most prom inent and distinguished of them were Messrs. W. S?n, S ?r, B. G. E?ds, O. 11 ? som, F. B. S?a, J. K. P?y, ami John G. G ? g. We need only add that tho members of the Committee deported themselves in such a manner as to contribute in an eminent degree to the comfort, gratification and pleasure of every one present. Mary Bodink.?It is now almost rendered certain that this woman will be tried in this county, and an applica tion for a change of venue will, iu all probability, be im mediately made to the Supreme Court. If it becomes necessary that she shall be arraigned beforo a jury of the " men of King's," the trail and hapless creature will unquestionably receive all the justice that is due to her, from as pure, honest, and unsophisticated a panel as can be found on this continent; and who may bo " sworn in" without much delay, and certainly without the thousand and one dilllculties which have attended the futile at tempt that has been made to obtain an unbiassed tribu nal in New York. Tar<ikt Kxcursion.?Fire Company No. 1, of Brook lyn, visited Newark yesterday on a target excursion, commanded by Horace Sprague, Esq., and under the name and title of the " Washington Guards." They re turned last evening with their target effectually bored through, even to the entire destruction of the "bull's* eye"?so masterly were the shots, and so completely efficient did the members prove themselves as skilful marksmen. An excellent entertainment was provided for them at Stewart's well known house, and on their return to this city last evening, they were liberally sup plied with refreshments by Mr. Haires, proprietor of National Hotel in Fulton street, and by the landlords of one or two other equally renowned hotels. The prizes were awarded to Messrs. George Mallory and William 8 tears. Kirk?A lire took place in Sands street yesterday, in a building occupied by Mr. Anthony as a bakery, and by Mr. Way as a fruit store. The Cue commenced in the basement of the premises, but ere much damage had been done, the gallant firemen of this city were in attendance, in large numbers, and, by the most prompt and indefati gable exertions, very shortly succceded in subduing the llames. Police Items.?Darien Stewart was arrested on Tues day evening, by officer McCormick, for riotous and dis orderly conduct in Myrtle avenue. On making a solemn promise to amend his ways and join the temperance so ciety, he was discharged from imprisonment. Cornelius and Michael Ryan wore taken into custody by the same ViRilunt otflcur, charged with committing au aggravated assault ami battery on Mr. James Keenan, in Douglas street, while he was at work for a Mr Jenkins of New Y ork. They wore lined live dollars each, on the pay ment of which they were permitted to go to their respec tive homes A warrant was issued against a man named llarkham, and his wife,on the complaint of a Mrs. Hannah Stevenson, who accused them with having threatened to commit violence upon her, so that she considered her per son in peril. The process was placed in the hands of General Storms, (not the famed brigadier and commissary of New York,) who will bring the parties before the po lice magistrates at ten o'clock this morning. Mr. Van Brunt, of Gowaunus, made an affidavit against a man who had been in his employ, charging him with stealing a valuable overcoat on Saturday last. Officers Bird and Combs have been delegated to take the offender in charge. Warrants weie issued against ?omo rowdies who conducted themselves in a violent and orftrageous manner at u ball in Atlantic street, on Tuesday last; and also against some fellows of a like unworthy kidney, who were engaged in a disgraueful spree in Smith street, near Livingston. Ukkirtcnatk.?A melancholy instance of the animus furamli, which will sometimes take possession of the most respectable and harmless persons, occurred at a house in Kurinan street yesterday, wherein a young fe male, of good family and connections, was detected in the commission ot a theft, which, doubtless, she will re gret during the remainder of her life. One of the police officers of Brooklyn was called upon to investigate the affair, when the stolen articles (consisting of earrings anil o her jewelry) were found concealed in the " bus tle" of the fair anil penitent peculator, and she was al lowed to depart without being subjected to further dil ticulty or trouble.

IiirioATKD Will.?A case is now before the Surrogate of this county?A. G. Hammond, Ksq.-which involves the validity of the will of the late Rodman Bowne, who left property to a lutge amount, the principal part of which is claimed by Samuel Bowne, under a will made in I S3'J. The exceptions to it are that it was a tempora ry provisions during the terrors of the cholera epidemic during that year; and that the deceased intended to have, or supposed it was destroyed. The claim now set up to a portion of the property is made, wo believe, by another brother of the deceased. The eminent counsel engaged lor the several parties are Judges Morse, Greenwood and Dikeman, H. B. Duryea and C. P. Smith, Esq. of this city, and Messrs. George Wood and Leveridge, of New York. The Surrogate was engaged yesterday in taking testi mony in support of the claims of the respective parties Cnac or Polly Hodlnc. Circuit Court. Judge Kdmonds, Presiding. Nov. SC.? Gieoaor. Cat-lin, who was called for further examination, was, at his own instance, relieved from serving, on account of his being so situated that his bu siness would suffer in his absence while on the jury. The morning hour was occupied with the discussion of a very important principle relative to this case. Mr J. K Whitish interposed his objections to the previously declared opinions of the Court; and in a very able, learned and conclusively arranged argument, in sisted that a juror called te the stand, could not by pos sibility he considered disqualified because of ?is enter taining the belief that a murder had been committed, us alleged in the indictment. That there was, or ought not to be, any objection as to the admissibility of such a : juror, upon any such pre conceived opinions; and that although impressed with such a belief, might yet be thought nnd considered eligible?based as such an opin ion might be, upon rumor, or newspaper intelligence; and farther, that the oath a lministered, requiring a true vcrdict upon law and evidenc , was in itself, or pn ?r, contradictory to any such supposed grounds of disquali fication; and that, therefore, and irrespective of sncn for mer conclusions, he should still bo entitled to respect ns a competent juror The counsel in behalf of the accused maintained an opposite judgment, upon the conclusive ground that a murder having been committed in the mind of u juror, implied an identification on the part of the accused, i and that a juror called under such Impressions, becomes at onre disqualified ; that his preconceived or prejudged opinions militates to Ins competency, and, heretofore, should be rejected upon such relative grounds. )Mr Josuan sustained the opinions advancod by his asso ; ciate'.also lor prisoner,and in a brief argument contended that the commission of a capital ofl'ence, well authenti cated, and fully impressed upon the mind of a juror call ed for admission, disqualified such ail individual as an j impartial juryman because, that a knowledge, either fixed or supposed, that a murder had been perpetrated, \ involves the guilty participation of the accused?the one being so closely allied with the other. The Cnt;iT seemed to acquiesce in this opinion, yet withheld its decision until farther reference- although its opinions were confirmed Irom the learned and intelli gent decision of Thief Justice Marshall, in connexion with Col Aaron Uuir, as to his treasonable intentions against the United states sonic years since, and oi which our renders are familiar, niter a multitude of excuses, and the expression of opinions had been received. Jon* ( was called forward - lias not formed an opinion; lives al ISO Madison street, is a grocer; has not of late road anything concerning this trial; has con versed much upon this subject; the impressions upon his mind are unfavorable to the prisoner; still entertains thorn Rejected as incompetent. At this stago ot the proceedings, the papel of about UK) from the 7th and 8th wards, became exhausted, and the I Court adjourned until !> o'clock At 6 o'clock, a further attempt was made to complete a jury In this case, and notwithstanding the long array of names having been returned from the Bth and 10th wards, it proved unavailing. At the Instance of Mr. Jor dan, the ahle counsel for the prisoner, (promptly acquies. | end in by Mr. Mark, the District Attorney from Ktateii Is. I land, in Richmond county,) tad who complained of phjrii. ral fatigue in their laborious duties, hi alio the improbabi lity of bain)? able to procure the additional and ueceacai > number of jury meu, moved a auspeniion of further pro rending*. The Court, under similar impr>t**ioiis, cigm lied it* willingness to omit CJiitiuued action in tint; matter, and discharged tbe number already aecured in thin very important and protracted trial, much to tli? satisfaction and relief of all partie* really or indirectly concerned in its iuue. The Court then adjourned until to-morrow (Tliuriday) morning at hall-past in o'clock. United Stair* District Court. The last term of this Court closed on Saturday last, when Judge Betts delivered hi* opinion in the following cases, viz Myles Mr Kir man v t. the Ship Harvest?This wa* a mo tion made by the claimant* to compel the libnllants to give additional lecurity for costs. In thi* case the Court decided that it wus compotent for the Proctor ol claim ants to make attidavits on which the motion was grounded. William Graham anil James Cunice vi. Jama Hoskins. This was a suit brought by the plaintiffs to recover com pensation (or services performed on beard the steam ship Great Britain, while on a voyage front New York to Liverpool and back to this port. On the part of com plainants, there was their own evidence. For the de fence, it had been shown by the chief engineer that one of the meu had been hired by him a* a firemen for tbe nassago from New York to Liverpool, and that tbe other had been allowed to work his pasiage thither, both of them being desirous to get to Knglaud ; that one ot them, in consequence of injuries received in Liverpool, was permitted to return in tue ship : and the other, beiug likewise anxious to get back to this country, was al lowed, by consent of Captain H., to work his passage back. The Court decided that there was no proof on the part of the plainflff* that any contract of hiriug had been made between them aud the captain or mastar ; aud that, according to their own tettimony, the Court could not take cognizance of the case.

A proposal was made some time since by the Western Railroad Company ol Massachusetts, to the Worcester Railroad Company, for an amalgamation of the two lines, to be governed by one Board of Directors. A committee was appointed by each company, and that committee have agreed upon the terms of the union, under one cor poration, to be called the Boston and Albany Railroad Company. Among the terms agreed upon, one is that the stockholders of the Worcester railroad are to receive six shares of tho stock of the new company for every five of the old. The stock of the Worcester company is selling at about seventeen percent above par, and the stock of the Western railroad about three per cent below par. Five shares of tho Worcester would, therefore, be worth $58ft, and six shares ol the Western, at present prices, worth $382 ?a difference of only $3 in favor of the Western. The agreement is to be acted upon by the stockholders of both corporations, and we should think there was very little doubt but that the arrangement would be adopted. It is hoped that a new tariff of charges for the transportation of passengers will he adopted upon an amalgamation of these two companies, and that a re duction of at least thirty three and a third per cent will be made in the price, for a through passage The returns ot tho Bank of Montreal for two poriods, compare ?? follow s : I Ban* or Mohtrkal.
