.NEW YORK HERALD. N?w York. Atonitajr, March 0, 10M. The Next New* from K uro|>r?The Lightning M xprtnrn?Our Arrangements. We are pleased to state that the persevering, en terprttfrtg proprietors of the New York and Huston TelegtikiU Comi>?Dy_?'ili succeed in having their line in working order as far as Hartford, and per haps to New Haven, by the time the next steamship reaches Huston. We published in yesterday's paper a letter from our correspondent in New Ilaven, stating that the posts had been set up and the wires would be arranged immediately. A lew days since we received the following letter from Messrs Livingston & Wells, of this city, the famous proprietors ol the Northern end North West ern express line. Oent ?The news per neat English steamer will pro bably be telegraphed (magnetic ) as lar as Hsrtlord? perhaps Hew Haven It is our intention to run an exrreos from the then ter minus of the telegraph to this city, for the use and be nefit of the entire press, or of such as may wisn to avail themselves of the opportunity Should you feel dis posed to beoomu a party to such ariangemont, we shall De happy ?r. ?aii upoi. von with the terms, An early reply .? requested. Your moat obedient servants. Livingston k WrLLS. We immediately replied in a note to Messrs. Liv ingston & Wells, and entered into an arrange ment, iu connection with other city papers, with thein to run an express from the terminus of the olograph to this city. We shall, therelore, through the perseverance ot the proprietors of the magnetic company, and Messra. Livingston & Wells, receive the next news from Europe through these enterpris ing gentlemen, over the lightning line. ThiB is the first time that the newapaper press will have used lightning as its agent in getting early foreign news, and we cl-tun to be one ot the first journals to bring it into requisition. The " Holy Alliance," we understand, in order to equal their last superhuman elfott to beat the New Yoik Herald, have made arrangements to run an express irom Boston, or elsewhere, independent of the telegraph. We are perfectly willing that they should do so. Indeed, in a charitable point of view, we would be willing to have them beat us. it may be ol use to them. But we are satisfied with the lightning line ; and if steam, or the devil, or an accident should beat that, we c.n't help it. Lightning moves swift enough for us and our readers. The Ore, on Crisis. The recent " fl-irr-up" in the United States Senate, and the complexion ol the intelligence irom Washingtou relative to the Oregon question, have attracted an unusual degree of attention in this com munity, and throughout the country These event? have only turinsheii additional evidence of the im portance of the crisis at whicn ihe Oregon coutrie versy, between this country and England, has reached It is notv certain and positive as ihe i rising sun ot to-morrow, or the going down of the I same over the daik blue mils of New Jersey, that the Oregon controvert must either be seitled on unit reaa nable compromise, tome where about 49 degrees, during the present session ot Congress, or, if not, after this year it never can be settled at all short of 54 40 This alternative is a law of nature The light which has recently been thrown upon this question is sufficient to illuminate the civilized woilJ. No douot can now exist in any reasonable or impartial mind that the title of the United Sta es to the whole of the Oregon territory, from 42? to 64a 40', is better than that of England ; am/, therefore, according to the strictest rules of justice, the loiter poicer ought to relinquish, hereafter, all claims to any portion of that disputed ground. We can entertain no doubt of the superior title of the United States to this territory, against all com petitors, and in the face of every hazard. Hut, while entertaining this unequivocal belief, the mind may be disposed?from principles of compromise, involving the laws of peace, and a desire to avert the calamity of war between two such countries as England and the United States, the end of which no mind can determine?it may be induced, under influences similar to these, to submit, with moderation and peace, to any reasonable compromise that may be beneficially entered into by the United States government with out injury to the rights or interests of the country.? On many occasions, in the history of nations, it was the wisest policy to insist upon extreme rights, at the hazard even of war; but, on the present oc casion?looking to the future destiny of the human race?it may, perhaps, be deemed the best policy, for the advancement of civilization, the progress of religion, and the improvement of the human race, to waive absolute rights, at the hazard even of pop ularity, so that a sanguinary and destructive war may be avoided. We would be disposed, therefore, notwithstand ing our firm belief in the superior righ ts of the Uni ted States to nil this territory, to concur in a com promise similar to that which the President has heretofore offered; and if the British government understand their position, and their best policy, they ought to lose no time in attempting to bring about such a consummation, with a view to put an end to this controversy. After this session of Con gress, the popular opinion in this country will recede to 54 40; and no power on earth will be able to induce the government ot this country to compro mise with the British government their elaim, with an indivisible and unchangeable right to the whole of this territory. Such being the view which we take of the posi tion, in this important crisis, ot our foreign rela tions, we believe that a few short months will deter mine whether we are to have a long period of peace and succeasful commerce,or whether they may turn upon the probability of our being subjected to the evils of a long and a terrible war. We are ready for either?believing that the destiny of this coun try will be advanced in either way. That destiny can be retarded by none, but it will force itself to the highest state of development through all obsta cles, either of diplomacy or war with any country or natien. If Mr. Fdkenham, at Washington, does not un derstand his position, or that of his government, in relation to this affair?as contrasted, side by side, with the temper and usposition of this country? and if he does not seize upon the present opportuni ty to accept what he hits refused, it is no idle van. cination to tell him that he and his country will ru* the day they ever delayed accepting reasonable terms on this momentous question. The right of the Uni ted States to the whole territory it "clear and un queationable," and yet, at this crisis, it is just barely practicable to settle it, on a compromise, at 49 de grees or thereabouts. Let this favorable season? this fortunate day, be allowed to escape, and never can a compromise upon this question be effected Let this question r?main open until the next elec tion, and a spirit will be evoked throughout the country, which no treaties with a foreign power no diplomacy?no armies?no navies, con ever in timidate. We will then stand united with the peo ple up to 54 40, before the world at large, and, let come what will, we vi,l eay, "damned be he who cries, hold, enough!" Mam Mb op thx Common Council?A regular meeting of the Board of Aldermen will be held to night, when the special committee, to wham was referred the duty of investigating into the alleged abuses in the Alms House department, will submit their report In the Board of Assistants, a special meeting having been ordered, the long delayed question of the Hudson street railway will be passed upon. There is, therefore, sufficient matter iff interest m either board to warrants full and an earlyat tendance of members. Tm Wrecks on Basnroat ? We are glad to perceive that Gov. Stratton, of New Jersey, has ap pointed three commissioner* to investigate the charges of piracy during the late shipwreck. We hope that the investigation will be thorough. Internal Improvements and a National Four dry.?As the Legislature of. Viifcima have passed into a law the supplemental bill authorising the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company to extend their road to the Ohio river, there is every prospect that the city of Baltimore will soon become a most important place of commerce, a great depot for the western trade, and point of concentration for the travelling and emigration between the Atlantic and the rich valley of the Mississippi and increase in her value as one of the suburbs of New York city. The effect of this great internal improvement will be felt throughout the Union. It will benefit this city. It will be the means of bringing immediately into contact the inhabitants residing east and west of the Alleghany mountains. The line of location of this road runs through the centre of the country, j presenting the shortest and most direct route to the j Ohio; and passing through the rich lands of western ; Virginia will ensure to it much valuable freight* while it will lend new vigor to the agriculturists of that important section of the State. It is evident that, as soon as this road shall be ex tended about thirty miles beyond its present termi nus, at Cumberland, the immense mines of coal and iron lying on the banks of the Potomac, will be ful ly developed, and must necessarily render this re gion the object of great attention to capitalists of enterprise and intelligence. The coal is of the very best quality, semi-bituminous, extremely powetlul, euduring, and almost entirely free from sulphur.? The iron found here is of unusual purity, and of almost every variety and description. Limestone, sand-stone, and fire brick clay, are here in abun dance. In order to form an estimate of the freight value of the coal and iron business, we have only to look at the large receipts of the Reading Railroad, from the transportation of coal alone, which will amount, this year, to $1,500,000, and, as this source of reve nue to the Baltimore and Ohio company will be reached by the construction of less than thirty mileB, no effort should be left untried to complete the road thus far, by the coming winter, to secure which ob ject only requires a vigorous application of labor.? The proceeds of this trade will be more than ade quate to pay a fair dividend on the whole capital stock, which will be much increased by the estab lishment of important iron works,whenever the road sh-ill be in operation. II proper iron works be erected by the company, they will be enabled to make their own rails, at a very moderate cost, much below the present market price, and which, it judiciously located, would en sure adequate supplies for all fu ure wants and pur poses. It is not improbable that the federal government will now see the wisdom of securing a proper loca tion, in th- mineral region, for ths establishment of a great national foundry, and for the purpose of providing a constant supply of pure bituminous coal for the use of public steamers. The value of such a po iiion, in a national view, cannot be questioned ; the situation is not only central, but the facilities for the transportation of the heaviest freight, to every section of the country, will be comp'ete, through a consecutive chain of railroads and canals. Tne reports of the Secretaries of War and Navy afford conclusive evidence that tlie government are aadly deficient inability to provide tor the nationa defence, and.notwithstanding'this acknowledgment, the heads of these executive arms of the nation havi- not presented any enlightened plan, by which this great public improvidence is to be amended If Congress will appoint a competent committee, for this purpose, with power to select a location for the establishment of a national foundry on the shores of the Potomac, bouuded by Virginia and Maryland, we venture to predict that no measure would prove more popular, both in regard to its un doubted propriety and evident importance. Necessary Retrenchment.?The shameful waste of time and the people's money, caused by the long sessions of our Legislature, is notorious. The law-givers are in no haste to conclude their deliberations, when they know that?thc longer they sit the more money they will get. It is not in hu man nature to voluntarily stop making money, and the bump of acquisitiveness is quite as large in legislators as in other men. When the new consti tution is formed, it should contain some "clause re stricting this power, which the .Legislature has, of plundering the public treasury by spinning out tedi ous sessions ol indolence on questions passed and gone. Thrice as much business might be done in half the time that is occupied at present. The retrenchment and reform that we recommend has been tried in New Jersey with success. The ! regular pay of the Assembly-men in that State is, j we believe, $3 00 per diem, for a limited time; j when that expires, they receive only 91 50. The consequence iB, that the people are not bored with | those long sessions, so fruitful of idle discussion | and so barren of useful resu ts, with which th?y I were cursed under their former pay-system. This sensible plan has reaently been adopt^ in Virginia also. Hereafter, the members of their Hons a of Delegates will receive, as usual, $4 00 a day to the first ninety days, and but $2 00 for every day additional. We hope that, in every public meeting or other transaction which is had in reference to the amend ment of our Constitution, this important subject will be kept steadily in view. It is important not only as a means of saving great sums of the public money, but as a sure preventive cf the legislative wicked aess which springs from legislative idleness It the Legislature is compelled to .hold short ses sions, by considerations of the pocket, members will have no time to indulge in personal .crimina tions and recriminations, such as we have recently witnessed, but will be busily engaged in transacting what they were elected for?the public business. City Election. ? The approaching municipal election, which comes off on the second Tuesday of next month, will be a very interesting and a very funy one. The democrats have already open ed the campaign with their two great volcanic eruptions in Tammany Hall, and are evidently pre paring for an arduous struggle. They expect to main tain their hold of the reins of power on the hobby" horse of reform which they have boldly mounted, and recklessly manage. The reform movement should have been carried on by a new party, who, untrammelled by selfish diqtut and partisan regulations, might have devo ed their strength and abiliiiea to true and radical reform; bnt the prompt movement of the democra tic leaders baa almost superseded the possibility of su< h a new party being formed. Bat there is yet hope. The whigs keep very quiet, and it is impossible to surmise what they propose to do. But there is an old proverb?and it may be that they are actuated by a subtle policy, to conceal some doubtful surprise which their opponents cannot anticipate. They should start up a reform in opposition to the demo crats. The natives are also in the field, and threaten to make a desperate struggle for the city government; but there's no chanoe for them The grand contest wilt probably be between tne whigs and democrats, and the result we will not ioretell. The demo crats, however, have an advantage as yet in their reform movement, and the whiga will have to | start some new and powerful excitement to regain lost ground. In the meantims, let us watch the program of events. Another Arrival from China.?The bark Inci of Baltimore, Capt. Buxton, arrived yesterda; from Canton, placing us in possession of our re gular files of the Hong Kong RegUUr, up to the lOt of November. The intelligence thus received however, has been anticipated. From the Cafe of Good Hope.?Full files of tt Port Natal Gazette, to the 27th December, by tl Arragon, at Boston, have been received at this o hce. They contain no news of importance. Rhode Island Politics.?The praties of Rhode Island, for such s small State, about arbig as the palm ot your hand, are certainly in a peculiarly com plicated condition?in as complex a state as Gov Dorr was in, a short time ago, at the "siege of Che packet."? In the first place, the whig party is composed of men called "Algerinee,"wbo, sijice the free suffrage excitement, have been joined by a large number of former members of the democratic party, who could not go the entire length, even to the point of the bayonet, with Dorr and his comrades. This party will run Byron Diman,who,we suppose, is the oldest son of the Dey of Algiers on his mother's side, as their candidate for Governor, he having been Lieut. Governor under Governor Fenner, probably a half brother of the Dey. Then comes the suffrage party, composed mainly of members of the democratic party who went and fought desperately at Chepachet with Dorr, and to whom have lately been added several prominent members of the whig party, who are anxious for a fight. This party, giving up for the nonce their pe culiar principles as a party, go for the restoration of legal rights to Governor Dorr, who loBt them with his sword at the above mentioned place, and cries for free suffrage, and will run a whig,with breeches, as their candidate for Governor. In addition to these two parties, we perceive that the abolitionists have organized themselves, tor the reason that no one would do the job for them, and have regularly nominated candidates for the various State offices. This is a tough party, and its mem bers have become considerably tanned in the hot sun of the politics of Rhode Island. There will now be an interesting struggle between the abolitionists and the whigs for the negro votes* and it is understood that on the first cool day they will toss up for them. The black portion ot the popu. lation, at a late election, secured to a certain ex tent the right of suffrage in that State. The next election will, therefore, be an interest ing one. Thk New OrxsA and the New Drama.?This week is to be one of considerable interest in the theatrical line. We learn that the musical (lite o' the city are all busily engaged in discussing the merits of the new comic opera by Donizetti, en titled " Don Pasquale," which is to be produced for the first time at the Park Theatre this evening Report speaks highly of the opera, which was per formed tor two seasons at the Italian Opera House, London. It is said to abound with the most deli cious morceaux, and to be constructed on a very grand scale. The Seguin troupe will make their debut on this occasion, and we have reason to be lieve " Don Pasquale" will become the rage. Mr. D. Marble also makes his first appearance since his return from Europe, as Sam Patch, in the drama of " Sam Patch in France." The management of the Park deserve great praise for their liberality and en terprise, in thus catering for the public taste. At the Bowery Theatre, the new'grand historical drama oi "Ivanhoe" will be produced for the first time this season. The worthy mansger of this popular establishment, in order to render this mag nificent production si ill more effective, has engaged the services of an equestrian troupe, consisting of thirty-two male and female riders, who will appear in the grand processions. The play itself is one of sterling merit, and the rare and costly additions will serve to render it the most gorgeous and attrac tive drama which has ever been produced on the American stage. With such attractions, we should not be surprised if another great mueical and theatrical revival were to take place. Thk Religious Lducation of Convents ?It is stated in the Quebec journals that legal proceed ings are about to be instituted against the Ursuline nuns of that city for a violation of the conditions on which tbey hoi I the property of their convent. It seems that one condition on which they hold this valuable propeity is, that they shall give instruc tion to the young ladies sent to the institution. But they have lately refused to do so in the case of all young ladies who are guilty of attending balls and parties. Twenty young ladies have been expelled for this alleged delinquency. One would imagine from this that the stiff old austerity of the persecuting Presbyterians and Pu ritans of the ancient times had been transferred te the Catholics, were it not too true that, much as re ligious sects differ and quarrel with each other, tbey all agree, in fact, in the same spirit of harsh ness and austerity?whatever name they may bear, and however antagonist they may appear. The English Corn Laws.?Wo learn from the Montreal Herald that meetings in Canada are very generally being called for the purpose of sending petitions to England against the repeal of the corn laws. This is apparently a singular movement, and is caused by jealousy of the United States? a fear lest the contemplated repeal might be benefi cial to the American agriculturist. It, however, should be borne in mind that wheat from Canada now goes into England at one shilling duty per quarter. Hi rah Powers.?We are requested to ask Mr. Park Benjamin to publish the letter said to have been received from Mr. Powers, the sculptor, de nying several of the statements of Mr. C. Edward Lester in his work, the Artist, tScc-. The Arrivals ?Our Marine list, in another part of the paper, will be found unusually large and in | teresting. The vessels came up the bay yesterday in large fleets, from almost every quarter of the globe. Mails from the South.?No less than four mails atrived yesterday afternoon from New Orleans and the intermediate places. They relieved us of a load of anxiety and several hours. From Brazil.?The fast sailing bark Kathleen, Capt. Bliffen, arrived yesterday from Rio Janeiro having left that place on the 17th January. Files of the Jornal do Commercio and O'Mercantile have been received. They contain no news of any con sequence. The O'Mercantil announces two arri vrtls at Rio, as follows; ''On the 15th January the Sardinian brig Diana arrived at this port, having on board Count de St Martin, Minister from his Majes tys, the King of Sardinia, to the Court of Rio Ja neiro; and also Monseigneur Bedini, the Apostolic Nuncio,with his Secretary." The U S frigate Congress, Commodore Stock ton, sailed from Rio on the 14th January for Valpa raiso. The frigate Columbia, Capt. Ritchie, bearing the broad pennant of Commodore Rosseau; the frigate Raritan, Capt. Gregory, and the Plymouth, Com mander Henry, were at Rio on the 17ih January. A portion of the crew of the Columbia were at the hospital upon one of the islands, affected with small pox, but were doing well. The Raritan was expect ed to sail for the Gulf of Mexico on the 20; h, and the Plymouth on the 19th for the River La Platte. The following is a list of officers attached to the U S sloop of war Plymouth :? Commander, Henry Henry; Lieutenant*. Henry Dar r.antel, Dominick Lynch.

Mexican News Expected ?The following ex tract of a letter from Pens tcola, which we received yesterday, would make it appear that thay are daily ex peeling later intelligence lrom Mexico, at that place. We give the extract I? " Pkniacola, Fab 39, IMS. " We are now hourly expecting the U. 8 brig Law rence from Vara Cruz, when I will give you all the news ihe may bring. Tha staam frigate Mississippi, and the brig Somen, are both hero?the former, as rumor haa it, ft remaining in port for eoaie important despatches." We might here add, that we are now looking far an arrival from Vara Crux, direct at thia port, one or two ?aaaala having bean due several days - if. O? Pic. Pet 38. Hon. Henry Clny in stopping with Col. Wm. Tay or, feint Coupon, La TkMlrleali. Fabb Thsatbb.?The new comic opera, 4>y Donfxetti, of "Dan Paaquale" will be performed thie evening for the first time in America. The Seguin troupe make their debut in the principal characters. The opera is spoken of in the highest terms by those who witnessed its repre i sentetion at the Italian Opera House, London; and, we doubt not, it will hare a successful and brilliant run here. Mr. D. Marble makes his first appearance this evening in the drama of" Sam Patoh in France," and we hope to see a fashionable and crowded house. Boweut Thkatbs.?The historical drama of " Ivan i hoe" will be produced for the first time this evening at ( the Bowery. The manager has, at great expense, en gaged the services of an equestrian (rsupe, consisting of thirty-two male and female riders, and a magnificent stud of fifty horses, which will add splendor to the enter tainment. The pley is one of thrilling interest, and has been got up with much care. Mr. Soott personates Isaac, the Jew, and Mrs. G. Jones the fair Rebecca. The Bowery will certainly be crowded to its utmost capaci ty this evening, and we have every reason to believe all will be highly delighted with the entertainment pre sented. Howie's Circus Company.?Tbls talented equestrian troupe have taken their departure from this city, and will open the Front street Theatre, Baltimore, on Thursday evening next. Madame Marie Macarte, the accomplish ed tqueetriennr, Dan Rice and John Oossin, those papu lar and inimi ublo clowns, accompany them on their way tiiitherward. They will, doubtless, have a very profitable season of it in the " Monumental" city. Mas. Mowatt.?A New Orleans paper saysThe appearance of this lady at the St Charles theatre has been marked throughout her whole engagement by en tire success. We anticipate for Mrs. Mowatt maoh greater triumphs than she has yet achieved. Once per tcctly familiar wifh stage routine, she will be able to bring her whole mind to bear upon the personation of the character she may assume ; she will exhibit new beauties in her conceptions of the author, and become permanently fixed in the theatrical world as a star of no common brilliancy. We rejoioe at her success, for the consideration she has every where received is to us an evideiice of a reviving interest in the drama, and shows alostering care for our native talent that will finally produce amongst us artists of the highest ability. TsMruKTOis.?A numerous and fashionable audience assembled last evening, at the Armory Hall, to hear this celebrated vocalist. His powers were considerably tested, from the number ana variety of songs which ho executed. Mr. Templetou's style is exceedingly simple ; moie disposed to give point to the sentiment of the poet, than to render the latter subservient to a full display of iroidedll tho powers of the voice?he very judiciously avoided the profuse use of those embellish m nts, which, although in Sood keeping when added tu Italian Cavatluas, in simple allad music serve rather to encumber than to adorn.? AT. O. TimeO, Feb. 28. Raisiho thk Prick or Tkcatbe Tickets.?On the 31st ult., the Mobile Rfgieier and Journal states, en attempt was made to raise the piioe of admission, on account of the engagement of the Acrobat Family. It proved injurious to the interests of the house. The Journal very prope ly remarks, " There is a stubborn ness among the theatre-goers that will forego an eve ning's entertainment. rataer than submit to a small ad vance in the prices of admission, even when it is known that the expenses of the theatre are enlarged i<, at least, as great a ratio." Mr. and Mrs. Kean were to make their first appearance at the St. Charles theatre, New Orleans, on the 3d inst. Mr. Burke gives a concert in Washington on the 10th instant. Mr Dempster, the delightful vocalist, gives a concert in Washington this evening. The complimen ary benefit given to Mr. and Mrs. Ay ling, in Boston, yielded $1350. City Intelligence. 8cwday.?Yesterdny waa an bo-iuuiul a day overhead a? is olten teen in these degenerate timet. The tun ahone beautilully, and the air waa mild as May. The flue weather brought out the ladiet in great number*, and Broadway, before and after church hour*, pretented a very fine tcene.

It was very numerously attended by the citi zens, and officers of the Navy in undress uniform. The body was taken to a cemetery in the upper part of the city. Licturks crow Oregon.?Mr. Charles Saxton will repeat hit lecture upon the Oregon territory, at the lecture room of the 8ociety Lihraty, this evening. He will give a detailed descrip'ion of the country, Tts re sources, climate, soil, productions, Ice.; and from his intimate acquaintance with the subject upon which he treats, he c <nnot foil to interest those who entertain a friendly regard tor its oocupation and possession. Mr. Saston's previous lecture at Croton Hall was well at tended, and excited very general interest. The 8evewth Wiid.-Ws have frequent complaints of abuses in the above ward. The lamps, a portion of which in the above ward are oil, are often out long be fore tight, rendering the rather unpleasant streets in that ward more unpleasent stili. The hydrants are also contiouslly running. We understand that the Aider man of the above ward is sick, which may partially ao count for this. 8edcctiow by & Clesoyman?The mysteries ef this great city do not appear to be half known yet. The se cret wires, which may be pulled at convenience?the crime which may be successfully smothered, under the mighty dollar?the public functionaries that grow rich out of small salariea?all these things are but imperfect ly understood by the "dear people, "who, happy in their ignorance, suppose that things go on as wall aa can ba expected. We have, however, recently bean permitted to tako a peep behind the curtain, and catch a glimpse ofwhathaa been goi ig on in one ol the departments ? Amongst other things, we learned that a very pretty German girl, about 31 or 33 yoars ot age, hea been (edu ced by a clergyman,(of what denomination we did not as certain,) who is located on Long Island, within 10 or 13 miles, or thereabouts, of the city. After the illicit inter course had been carried on for some time, and the girl's peculiar situation could be no longer kept e secret, she came to this city, and remained in seclusion until about six or eight weeks ago, when, upon personal application, or by an arrangement made by other parties, she was admitted into the Alms House, where, about five weeks ego, she gave birth to a child. After remaining in that oetabiiehment for a sufficient length of timo to admit of her removal, (if we are rightly informed,) she was eent to another establishment, under the control of the City authorities, generally known as the Tombs, where ska was kept in durance vile for eeveral days : after which, ?he was taken out, and otharwiae disposed of, probably permitted to take up her resideoce with a friend, (in Pitt street,) until sufficiently recovered, to return unsus pected to some situation provided for her by her seducer, who, as we have been given to understand, haa paid a liberal bonus, amounting, we believe, to about $B00, doubtless with e view of putting a quietus to the whole affair ; but whether this was taken in behalf of the city and county, or whether it was taken as a mare gratuity, for personal favora granted to the reverend seducs r, wo are not yet able to say ; of course, " they are all honor able man." We can only aay that the case presents itself in a novel light, on account ot the girl being a transferred from place to placo, in the manner she was, as well as the manner in which the affair waa dis posed of. This, then, is one of the mysteries of Gotham, to which we alluded above. Movements of Travellers. The fallowing arrivals, yeaterday, are no insignificant i* of early " evidence of the progress of early spring intercourse with the Southern and Western seotions of the Union with our city.

Baltimore, March 4th, 1846. The Beauty and Fatl, iont?Sleighing Parties, fyc. The late snow seems to have almost bewildered the good people of our "little village," insomuch that, notwithstanding Lent, we still continue our gaiety with almost undiminished vigor. Tne most charming fite o? the past season was a sleighing party, given by Mrs H. T., on Tuesday last, at her magi.ificent residence, about one mile from the city. The party, after a ride of about six miles, assembled at Mrs T.'s, to spend the rest of the evening in dancing, teie-a-tllee, Sic. The merry sound of music seems to arouse the belles and beaux from the tea and toast which they were so quietly discussing, much to the annoyance of several loving couples; for where will you And less romance than iu a cup of chocolate or a sandwich. We enter a room decorated in most exquisite taste, and in a style entirely new; and while the couples are taking their places for the first dance, we have time to arrange our spectacles on our nose; in order the better to notice the proceed in?? of the gay dancers. The dance is lead ell" by Mr. T , the host, with the gracetul Mist 8 H . who, with brilliant wit, a highly cu'tivated mind, and much beauty, is a most agreeable little person. But the fairy-like Miss 8? t; it truly most worthy ot the admiration and ho mage paid to her by the numerous triends whom her lasciuating manners have collected around her. One cannot fail to notico and admire the aristocratio and lady like bearing of Miss L J , as she floats through the graceful waltz, with W T a very handsome young man, entirely without conceit or pre tensions, but whj, with agreeable manners, and aoma wit, is the bvorite of belles, as well as beaux. But where, where can I find words to express, or a simile wherewith to give the least"idea of tno swan-like, ethe real waltzing of Mre. H T , the hoateaa ! But now turn with me towarda the lovely Mlaa L M , in whoae person the gracee seem to have taken their abode?upon whom Heaven seems to have lavished all loveliness and beauty. This is her " fint winter," and bar ingenuousness and nairtte serve only to render her more charming. Thosa lovely eyes have enchained more than one heart too firmly to be freed, unless one might disoover where " Lethe, the river of oblivion, rolls Her watery labyrinth, whereof who drink, Forthwith his former etate and being forgeta, Forget* both joy and grief, pleasure and pain." Among onr beaux, we are proud to enumerate young W J , of your city, whose sflsbility and gentle manly oonduot, have gained him many friends in a place where, on his arrival, he had probably not an acquain tance. There, in a flirtation chair, I recognise that in corrigible fli*t, W B : h* ia now, I sunpose, pouring aweet nonsense into tbe ear of the maiden by bis aid*. He is a great Polka man, and professes to enjoy waltzing exceedingly ; bat the expression of his coun tenance during the waits, 1* a proof positive to the con trary. These flirtations are terrible bores. There, In another corner, ait Misa E J ,'and O W , with a handsome face, and agreeabla manners. Con versing with tbe agreeable, Mrs. 8 H , we notice young T J , who, by his intelligence, gentle manly appearance, and retiring manner*, baa become a universal lavorita. Reclining, in beauty and grace, upon an ottoman, may be seen Miss R , surrounded, as usual, by beaut ; but her expressive glance, occa sionally eaat towards J B , shows very evidently that he is the favored one. Her brother, A R , is rather a handsome fellow, with agreeable manner*, although not much intellect His chief recommendation ia, that he ia a travelled man, and consequently, con verses wall. ______________ The New Comet* Ousbbvatobt, March 6, 1816. 8ia?I enclose the parabolic elements of tk# now comet, computed by Professor Hubbard, from my obser vations ef last night, and the two preceding night*.

Stock speculators, as well as all others, are anxious waiting some definite movement in the Senate upon 1 Oregon question, so that they may be able to Judje, some extent, what is likely to be the result of the mi ter. There appears to be considerable diflculty in t ranks of both parties, and it is the general impress! that the breach between the democratic Senators is si flciently wide upon this question to prevent a re-unio In the event of the division upon the Oregon quest! continuing, the compromise resolutions will undoubte ly pass. The resolutions of Senator Colqnitt meet wi general favor, and the rumor current in Wall street frw days since, that these resolutions had passed, had very iavorablo effect upon business sflairs. From tt we come to the conclusion that the passage of these i solutions through the Senate, would give a very gre impetus to commercial matters. It i? stated that the** resolutions would not pet* til lower house, and that the qaeatjon would, therefo j remain open, acd no nearer a aettlement than 1 u now. The commercial, manufacturing, and in fa all claaaea do not care ao much about the queaUon belt, aettled, aa they do about the manner in which it will i "ranged, or rather the fact that the peaceful tel.tJoi of the two countriea-United State. ,nd Qreat Britain! will not be diaturbed.
