N i'ORK HERALD. ??W Vork, Suutlnjr, April '4ll( lM-lUi News from Knrope. The steanuhip Great Western, lrom Liverpool, is now due, unci may be hourly expected to arrive. She brings six days' later intelligence. We shall i?8Uf an extra immediately on her arrival. What will nr. Polk Do ! Some of the newspapers imagine that the passage of the Oregon resolutions will finish all ditiiculty about Oregon. We think dilf'erently. What wilj Mr. Polk do 1 How will he negotiate ? He is in a position of great ?JiItioulty?a position that he has made for himself. The first thing is to give the notice. What then ? Will Mr. Pakenham make any proposals of compro mise, and can Mr folk assent to them ? Will 49 fie the basis of negotiation, or will 54 4<) be the claim ] The war party, comprising a large section of the Senite and of the House, will endeavor to in tluence Mr. Polk against any negotiation. The peace pirty will do exactly the contrary. He will be placed between two influences in his own councils, together with the difficulty of negotiating with Eng land On all hands, therefore, looking over the course of M r. Polk, his bold declarations and shullling acts, we are much afraid that the difficulties growing out of the Oregon question are only beginning afresh. The conduct of Mr Pakecliam, the British Minister, has been eqmlly censurable. In fact, if this country gi't into collision, it will have been produced by the blundering ai;d vacillating conduct of both Mr. Polk and Mr. Pakeuham?the one the ngent of the Ame rican people, and the other that of the British. Mr. Polk's organ may cry out, " be quiet," " be still," " don't say any thing more." Tins is all nonsense. Mr. Polk has raised "spirits from the vasty deep," and he can't quell them Until the Oregon question be settled, our commercial relations can't be settled, nor can anv of the measures before Congress be brought to a definite conclusion. The Ortgon question is more open than ever. We are in the bonds of the two P's, and neither of?them very great men. American Enterprise Abroad?The very in teresting letter from our correspondent at Vienna, winch we publish in our columns to-day, gives plen tilul illustration of that enterprise, skill and ingenu ity, for which our countrymen ure so distinguished Throughout every nation in Europe, our engineers are considered the ablest in the world ; and the proof of the assertion may be found in the fact of their being sent for to superintend the construction of the most vast and magnificent railroads that the capitalists of the old world have ever undertaken. Scientific Franee and England are unable to pro duce capable competitors. The great railway from St. Pctersburgh to Moscow, is an instance in point. No less famous are our machinists. Where England furnishes one, we furnish, at least, two locomotives to the railroads of continental Euiope. Our steam engines work better, faster, and with more power, than those manufactured elsewhere, and are deci d edly beyond all competition. There is a sort of go a-head-tiveness in our people that nothing can resist. Go where you will?north, south, east or west? Europe, Asia or Africa?you will be sure to find a Yankee. He makes ships for the Sultan of Turkey, locomotives for the Czar of Rus sia, wooden clocks for England, clothing for the British troops in India, cheap muslins for the Chi nese, carriages lor the Imaum of Muscat and the king of Morocco, molasses ladles for the West In dies, and various articles for his Majesty of Tim buctoo. Go to Afghanistan, you find American en gineers directing "the artillery of the mountaineers against their invaders. Visit the Sandwich Islands, you behold in the cabinet of Hamahaho, a Yankee lawyer, attorney general of the kingdom! If the great maritime powers of Europe Bend out an expedi tion to explore unknown seas, their lleets are unex pectedly hailed, when they suppose tnat they have discovered a new island, by some down-east sloop, whose captain wishes to know whether they are in want of a pilot. In short, we are the most enterprising and ingeni ous people on the globe. We push on, through all ditliculties, to acquire money and fame; and if the Oregon question result in war, we may push through Canada, lay a strong hind on Newfoundland, and perhaps amuse ourselves by rescuing Ireland from the grasp of the British empire. At any rate, nothiug seems impossible to the energy of Ameri cans. Morals akd Literature.?Immorality and intel ligence appear to be increasing ! Crime and refine ment, religion and infamy, improve daily ! Shock ing murderers in many of our great citierf escape with perfect impunity; and the police reports disclose re volting scenes in society, and terrible murders, side b) side with the most wonderful improvement? in .science, in intelligence, in the mauutacture of new religions, and in the saving of eternal souls. The new8p\|>er8 during the last week have given some extraordinary scenes of social life in the shape of |>olice reports relating to the conduct of a father and his daughters, all ot them occupying a respect able position in society, in the Bowery. We almost regret that our columns were made the vehicle of such intelligence, but upon further enquiry we have every reason to believe that the case in question has been much exaggerated. By th? first statements it appeared to be a case of shocking demoralization in the family circle, and we are not sure if this is not one ot the many cases ot a similar kind which literature?the popular literature and laxity of the age?is extending throughout the land. Look, for example, at the tlood of licentious literature of all ( kinds which has inundated the country tor the last lew years ! And out ot the streams of this flood, fortunes have been made by some of the most reli gious publishers of the community ! Talk of the li centiousness of the newspapers, indeed ! It is no thiug compared with the horrible depravity circu lated by m.i ny respectable booksellers and publish ers ! Every body speaks well of the high character, pure morals, unbending integrity of the Harpers, and various othei booksellers. It is quite just, and per fectly true. Those enterprising publishers are strong pillars in the Methodist church; they have published a beautiful edition of the Holy Scriptures, and their ertorta in this line may secure the salvation of im mortal souls at the rate of one hundred per week ,who may knock at the doorot Heaven and have the door opened to them on golden hinges. But unfortunately, side by fide, we find them promulgators of the works ot Kugene Hue, and of other licentious writers, both ot the English and French schools, whose productions are equally eloquent, and well calculated to secure the diimnation ot ten times a hundred, every week, to the other place. The strange scenes ot demoralization, which we behold in the administration ot justice?in the so cial circle?around the family tire-side?must result from these demoralizing publications, issuing from the pious booksellers of New York and other cities. It is the necessary result to aociety, produced by these highly worthy booksellers. But we suppose they must not only make their fortunes in this world, but also Isy up, by h double duty ot good and *vil here, friends hereafter, both in heaven, and in the other place?whichever deatiny may be their lot. We wish some writer would take up this sub ject, and discuss the tendency of the enterprise of our popular booksellers upon morals, literature, Mociety, and all our institutions, tor the next hun dred years. Disrtnot ismed Arrival ?The Hon Daniel Web ?ter and lady have armed in the city, from Washington, and occupy apartments at the Astor House. Amonf the nsw manufactures now turned out by ths pity oI Norfolk of# bla?luBiUhi' hallow*. WaTH1ni? Pi.<< f- We *e that Iher# are pre paration* making in several parts ol the country, at the famous watering placet) throughout the land. These pre|>arationa have been commenced by alt kinds of caterers for the public, from the proprietors of the I ntted States Hotel at Saratoga, and their contemporaries, to the lesa ambitious, but useful, little fellows who run expresses and supply the read ing community in such pluces with the Herald and otherpajiers. Munden, the little and active agent in Saratoga, ta already in this city making arrange ments tor the ensuing season. We expect that the coming season will be one of the finest that has taken place in many years past. Indeed, we hear of great preparationa in the fashion able circles to visit the springs, and other placep, as far north ax Nahant, and as far south as Virginia. We also understand that several of our people in this city intend taking a trip to the watering places in Europe; and, probably, Baden-Baden, and other fashionable watering places in Europe, will see a great many Americana during the piesent year. The facility of intercourse between England and America is so great, both by the splendid packet ahips and steamers, that it is nothing, now-a-days, to visit Baden Baden?hardly so great an undertaking as it was to visit Saratoga or Niagar a, fifteen yearo.s Delegates to the State Convention. Mr Bennett:? As the names of the nominees of the three great political parties are now before the public, and as there is, no doubt, (treat differences in the charac ter, qualifications, See , of the persons so nomi nated ; and, as the electors generally cannot be ex pected to know the characters, Arc , of all of them; antf ns J wish to make a good selection of the best, it I can find out which the best are, will you favor us with your opinon, according to your knowledge and information, what sixteen out of forty- ne named?or, in other words, what sixteen would you select to make out your own ticket 1 Your compliance will confer a favor on J. M. Mr J. M :?I have lived in New York over a quarter of a century, and have had the means of knowing men as much as any other person, yet I hardly ever heard of one-fifth of the persons put in nomination by the various parties. Who many of them are, God only knows, but he won't tell. The Convention is n leap in the dark. Take it, or let it alone, as you please. J. G. B. Glty Intelligence. ' The Eclime ?We pratume that the eclipse came off yesterday; but if it did it was only visible in this part of the world to the birds that fly above this dull earth, into the regions where clouds never sully the brightness of the cerulean sky. With the exeepticn of a little addi tional darkness the eclipse made no mora difference with us New Yorkers than though there had been no eclipse at all. We shall wait with anxiety from other cities, to see whether tbey were more favored than we. We have lost a fine sight, an>l shall not have the oppor(' tunity of witnessing ai.other for eight years. The Convention.?Indkpenpent Ticket. ?In com pliance with b requisition, put forward in the Journal of Commerce, a meeting took place last evening at the Tabernacle, Francis Griffin, Esq , in the chair, Gkorue B- Butler, Esq , was appointed Secretary. The object of the meeting was to select out of the three tickets, democratic?whig?and native, already selected, a delegation of such a character as would give universal satisfaction to the citizens in general. The meeting, though comparatively small, embraced a num ber of our most influential merchants, and among whom were Messrs. Moses H. Grinnell, J. Minturn, Aspinwall, Wood, Hagarty, J. Fessenden, Chandler, Parkins, Co* zens, Lloyd, Slamm, George W. Dixon, Stephen gam mons, Austin, Allen, &c., ko. Mr. Grinnell was in lavor of nominating a ticket which would support the interests of all classes. Mr. Fessenden considered that the mechanics should be represented more fully than in the manner which the tickets, already presonted, represented thorn. After a few desultory remarks, tho following ticket was selected : ? Stephen Allen, David B. Ogden, Charles O'Conor, Shepard Knapp, Jno. L Stephens, Kolomsn Townsend, Hiram Ketchum, Benjamin F. Cornell, The meeting adjourned. Chance in the Whig Ticket.?William F. Haver meyer, JohnC Gteene and Samtiol F. Mott, having do clined the nomination of the whig constitutional con vention, Ogden Edwards, John H. Williams and Elias H. Ely, have been nominated in their places. Kire.?A fire broke out on Friday evening, about 10 o* clock, in the 3d story brick bnilding, belonging to Jacob Baker, Esq., at the corner of Pike slip and Cherry street, occupied by Mr. Le Reamy as a storehouse. In it were stored 760 half boxes of tea, part of the cargo of the ship Rainbow, and belonging to Howland and As pinwall ; also a quantity ot cinnamon and sugar, and two or tbi ee hundred bales of eotton,' belonging to Roberts and Williams. The fire caught in the second story, and is supposed to have been caused by spontaneous com bustion. The firemen were promptly on the spo'., but could not save the building, which is burnt down to the first story, and the cotton is still burning. .Men are at work now getting out the tea and cotton, most of the former wilt bo saved, though in a damaged state. The store was adjoining flicker and Brother's Croton flour mills, which at oae timn wore threatened with destruc tion. In the vaults underthe street, a quantity of salt petre and turpentine are storod, but probably the lire will not reach them. Both the building and goods wore insured. While engine No. 12 was playing, a largo eel, eighteen inches in length, came out of the pipe. One of the same size also came out of No. 3. About 60 bales ol cottou, J00 mats of cassia, and a few hogsheads Lora Nash, Richard 8. Williams, John Leveridge, John II. Williams, Elias H Ely, Robert Taylor, Henry Nicoll, Ogden Edwards. of sugar were saved. Another Fibe.?About 3 o'clock yesterday morning, a lire broke out at No. 1 Murray street, in a two story building, the lower part occupied as a shoe ;store, and the upper as lodging rooms, by Mr. T. Booth and his sister. The fire caught in the store, and before it could be chocked, the whole stock was destroyed. Mr. Booth and his sister waking up, and finding the store in a blaze, were obliged to get out of the scuttle, and going along the roof, descend in an adjoining bouse. It will be a total loss to Mr. Booth, hia insurance policy for $1800 having run out on Friday. The inside of the building is entire ly burnt out Alarm.?There was an alarm of 9re in Eldrldge street, about five o'clock yesterday morning, but it was extin guished with but little damage. The Fire o.? Lono Island ?The fire that wa? seen on Friday night, near Fort Hamilton, Long Island, proves to bo two large stables, owned by Timothy Cortlyou. The contents consisted ol four hundred bushels of wheat and a quantity ol rye There were also seven hoises and one ox, all of whfch were burnt. Thero was no in surance. Shortly after, a fire occurred at New Utrecht. A barn containing three horses, several carriages, and a large quantity of harnesi, wore all destroyed. Tho property belonged to Mr. Woodward; also no insurance. Both the fires, it is supposed, were the work of an in cendiary. A Polander was arrested on suspicion, as he bad made threat* against the owners of the property that day, lor some supposed injuries be had received. lie was taken at the latter fire, with a box of matches in his po net. Fill in a Fit.?A Frenchman, name unknown, fell in a fit in Vesey street, yesterday afternoon, and waa ta ken to the City Hospital. Attemttiuj Suicide.?On Friday evening, Mr*. Ryan, residing at the comer of Frankfort and Vandewater streets, while in a fit of insanity, attempted to cut her throat with a razor. Attempt at Drowning.? Officer Kverson, of the Filth waid, rescued an unknown woman from drowning, on Friday evening. Ma. BaisTow, at 189 Broadway, offers an excellent op portunity to any one who wishes to acquire, with readi ness, a good hand. His supeiiotity in teaching ladies and gentlemen an excellent nsnd-wiiting in twelve les sons, is well known. He is considered one of the best teachers of the chirographic ait i:> tho country ; and Uio?e who write a cramped and indistinct hand, cannot do better than to call on him Coroner's Office.?AVerf hy a Hog ? The Coroner was called to hold an inquest, yesterday, at No. 239 Wil hum street, on the holy of a small boy, only eight years of age, by the nam* of James D. l.evy. Tnis poor little fellow was accidentally knocked down by a brute of a pig, on Friday night, in Chatham street, near Pearl, by which he received such injuries as caused his dcaUi yesterday morning.

The play seem* to have been, written with a view to exhibit the peculiarities oft va riety of character*, rather than to carry oat any sus tained plot. The character* are ao marked, that they atand oat with such prominence a* to Ox the attention of the audience on their pcculiaritiei, and to make them ioie sight altogether ot the very slight chain which the plot ntibrds to connect them together. Tha humor ii of a quaiut, grave style, and the play is apt to pall upon nine-tenths of the audience; ana even those by whom it i> relished, it pleases more as a relic of olden time, than from any real merit or wit that it possesses. Mr. Van denhotTV Kitcly, was everything that it should be. He portrayed the jealous husband most truthfully. Barrett's Bobadil, was a capital performance. Indeed, all the characters were admirably sustained, and the perform ance deserved a larger audience. The entortainment closed with " Three Week* alter Marri?g?." Monday evening, Shakspeare's " Antony and Cleopatra," is to be produced for tne first time in New York, with all tl.e uida of new scenery, costumes, und decorations. No pains or expense have been spar-d on the port of the management, to bring it out in a style of splendor wor thy of one of the finest productions of the great drama tiat. We have no deubt that the piece will have a great rao. Bowkry Theatre.?The tragedy of " Virginiua" was again repeated last night, with the addition of the same piece* as on the former evening. The good judgment of the able manager, Mr. Jackson, is in nothing more apparent than in knowing how to discover the real state of public feeling and demand. No good piece which draws well, and gives such unbounded satisfaction as hive done the pieces lately brought forward by Mr. Jackson, ought never to ba hastily and suddenly with drawn; it it oftentimes the cause oi great disappointment to ,1he public, lor a good piece, withdrawn too soon, is like losing suddenly n beloved friend, prematurely, in eurly youth. We are glad to see, not only the introduc tion of popular pieces at this theatre, but also, that time and opportunity is given to the crjwds which throng the theatre to witneHg them. The astonishing success which has attended the performance of " Virginiui," is proof both of the taste of the public, as wella-i the talent and skill oi the excellent company of this great and de servedly popular theatre. ? Qbcbxwich Theatric.?The performance* at the (ireenwich, laat night,were of a very amusing character and highly applauded throughout, by a large and fa*h ionable house. The inimitable Yankee Hill la one of tha mast laughter-provoking men iu the world, and he al ways afi'erds the greatest delight to his audiences. Co medics are best calculated to draw fall houses at the Ureenwich, and we are pleased to see that the manage ment have latterly adopted them altogeth>r. This is a most charming and beautiful little theatre,* and we would recommend all atrangera stopping in tna city to visit it at least once Heaidenta should of cour*e ba constant patrona, and the people of the upper Sart of the city are beginnin .? to evince their good taste, y liberally supporting the establishment. It would be a disgrace for them not to do so. Ma. Haceett.? Belore we saw Mr. Hackatt'* " Fal ?taff," we were uncertain in what estimation to hold hix. But his delineation of the amorous knight?one of the happiest of Shakrpeare'i creations - entitles him to a high rank as a comedian. It is certain that Mr. Hacitett, although possessing a high order oi histrionic talent, and extraordinary application, has never made himself a perfect master of any other character, with the excep tion, perhaps, of " Rip Van Winkle." it liai been his peculiar misfortune to be . too ambitious. By striving to gaia distinction by versatility, he has attained but to mediocrity in most of his attempt!. Instead of concen trating his talents on one particular lino of characters, by striving to be versatile, aud by aiming to be great in all, he has been able to attain but partial success in many. With undoubted talent, a line conception, and nice judgment, he can never altogether fail in any thing he attempts: but in consequence of the misdirection of his energies, in most of the character* which he at tempts, with tho exception of the two which we have named, other actors, of far less celebrity, are very much his superiors. It is scarcely1 iair to judge him by hi* "Sir 1'ertiuax MacSycophant," became from it* meagre ness of plot and barrenness of incident, the play is apt to iatigue; and this fatigue is increased by the iucompre hensibility, to most of the audience, of tha dialogue in which Sir Pertinax engages. Mr. Ifackett has doubtlea* spent a great deal of time in itriving to master the Scotch dialoct; but to what purpose / His accent and pronunciation are quite creditable, but by no means perfect. It is a mixture of all the Scottish dialects in one compound. An actor might as well try to gain popularity by reading a portion of Homer's Iliad on the stage, in order to show his proficiency in Greek. Very few would understand whether he read cor rctly or not. f heere is not one in a hundred that under stands Greek quantities or talked in attic or not Hi* " Philip O'Hara" and "O'Callaghan," are broad cbariaca tures. His brogue i* labored and imperfect. It does not come trippingly from the tongue; ana he dresses toe characters abominably. George Barret ia infinitely hi* superior in both. Hi* " Monaieur Mallet" is a very cre ditable performance, and that is all. Indeed, the part does not admit of the exhibition of any great excellence, unless we may *o term a facility in speaking broken French But in "Falstaff" he is truly great; indeed, we may safely say, that he is the greatest living "Falstaff." The jaunty, swaggering gait, the amorott* chuckle, the sly, roguish leer, the rich hearty laugh, the mixture of braggadocia andcowardico, and the vein of sly humor running through the whole, are done to the life. Hi* by-play i* admirable ; hi* conception oi the character faultless ; and be has reduced that conception to the most perfect practice. It has been too much the custom to suppose that any man who would pad well, reduce his voice to a sort of phthisical grunt, and waddle about the stage like a prize ox at an agricultural show, could do ?'falstaff.", But there ore very few of Siiakipeare's characters that more require a high order of talent, and the exercise of taste and judgment in it* delineation, than that great comic character. Mr. Hackett's excellence in the part, lead* us to wish that he had confined himself to one line of character*; a*, if ho had done so, he wculd have undoubtedly attained a higher rank in hi* profes sion than he now hold*. It i* not too late to retrieve the error. Bubee, the Violinist.?Mr. Burke, the distinguished violinist, had a concert, on Tuesday, in Philadelphia, which was attended by over on* thousand persons. It was one of the most successful complimentary concert, of the kind, that has been recently got up. Two thirds of the auditors were ladies,^who patronized it. Mr. B. was called out by some persons, but had not the courage to face so many brilliant oyes and animated countenances, which were gleaming with admiration He ran away. Ob ! shame on your Irish descent! Mr. Burke is now on his way to Albany, and will thence proceed towards Buffalo. He must try to face the ladies in a speech, it he means to go to heaven. The Rears at the South.?The Keans have been ?ary successful in the Southern cities. They have been playing at New Orleans and Mobile to very great houses. On their route from Mobile to New Orloans, they fell in with Leopold De Meyer, and travelled in company with him to tbo groat city of the South. They took their be nefit, and played last at Now Orleans, on the 14th inst, to a tremendous house, in which there were over $1100. The next day they started lor Si. Louis, and thenca to towns on the Ohio river. They are expected to return to this city, and commence a short engagement in "Ion," atthePaik.on or about the 35th May. After that en gagement, we understand they will take a little rocrea tion and rest, during the summer?visiting, probably, all the watering places , preparing themselves, also, for tho commencement next tall, with some new and splen did tragic representation. The engagement of the Keans, both North and South, has been one of the most profita ble that has taken place for years past. Mra. Kean, pa tioularly, has made troops of friends, wharevar she has gon?. Tic * a beau's Coscebt.?What has become of this con cert ? We have understood that Perabeau and Fontana intended to play, on two pianos, in this concert, the great composition of Lt Dettrt?Perabeau having copied the manuscript notes of De Meyer, at the time he was in this part of the country, or while he waa at Boston. What is the cauie that the concert did not come olf? If it comes off soon, we hope some musician will steal certain passages from Hlickwaod'i Magnzint, pass them off on en unsuspecting editor, an<1 form them in tha shape ol a criticism, on the same forthcoming concert Amsmca* Artists.?Wo mentioned, same tima since' that Mr. Drayton, whom wa once heard at Washington, and who possesses threat musical talent and genius, was about to make his Hrbut, as a vocalist, in this city, or elsewhere We are nu* informed that Mr. D intends to visit London or Paiis, end take les>ons there, and study the profession, before he makes ?his appearance in public. This, perhaps, is a judicious and decreet reso lution . American aitists in K.urope, are just beginning to receive proper attention from foreign critics. Look at the career of Forrest?Jim Crow?and Hackett! or upon ClMilotte Cuatimau ! Charlotte, for many yesrs, performed at all the theatres in this country, in the first style of excellence ; but she was neglected, because she waa'merely an American actress. In Knglaud she has been properly estimated, and is considered one sf the greatest representatives of the tragic muse, now living; and by many of the moat critical, she ia considered the lineal descendant of the genius, power and talent of Mrs. Siddons, cr Miss O'Nait?the highest taler.t of former years. Van Ambt'b<;h's Mi*?nr.nie ?The proprietors of this splendid collection of animals have determined to gratify the desire of tha public, and romain for three days long er. Any one who has not seen this collodion, should not fail to visi it belore its departure from the city. The animals are soma of the finest over eihibito ! in this city, and the parforlamces of Mr Vau Amburgh are calculated t? excite wonder and admiration?even from those who have already visited the exhibiuon. Kacb perform ance must possess interest, as in the wonderful docility and subjection of those savago aniir.als, one seas exem plified, in a most striking degree, the wonderful icfluence of mind over the brute creation. Castle Oabd?!*.?The proprietors of this wall known teaort, have made arrangements to give two grand sacred concerts there this afternoon, at three and half riat seven o'clock The grand orchestra of the eatab ishment, under the direction of O W Meyter, Jr. will perform a selection of sacred music, from tha bast ancient and modern composers. Josephine Clifton was to appear at tha Memphis thea tre on the night of the lath inst. The Hughes Family are giving concerts in Colambua, Ohio. Harr Alexander gave his last entertainment in Charles ton on the 93J inst., the proceeds being for the benefit of the Masonic fraternity of that city. Mile. Augusta took her benefit at tha Walnut Straat Theatre, in Philadelphia, last evening. Tha perform ances conaiatad ol selections from "La Bayadere" a*d tha " Wilien, "und the farce of " Secr+SarvMe." Mr. Temple ton gava his farewell oonoart in St Louis on the lath inst Mr. Dempster's concerts at Louisville, have obtained well merited praise from tha press of that city. Brooklyn City Intelligence, Tut I 4T? Riot* i* Bsoosi ?s - the public mind bs? be00 a good deal excited on the subject of iha re cent disturbances iu Brooklyn, and as various and con tradictory statements have appeared in relation to them, we have been at considerable pains to obtain authentic and accurate information in regard to the cause and pro gress of tbe cmrutt. As tbere are two Torsions of the atUir, we shall give both, leaving the reader to draw his own conclusions. It appears, then, according to tbe statement of tbe contractors, that during the winter months they had some six hundred laborers in their em eoyment, tbe wages being sixty-live cents a day, and e men working from duwn of morning until dark, with the exception of the dinner hour. It may be well to premise, that by tbe contractors we mean Mesirs. Vooihies, Stranahan It Co., contractor* for tbe Atlantic Doc*, and for levelling and filling the adjacent lots. On tbe 1st of March the wages were raited to seventy conts. About the middle of March the men struck for higher wages, and for the establishment of the ten hour system. On the 1st of April the wage* were raised to eighty cent*, but the men refused to work longer than ten hours, and, according to the state ment of the contractors, deterrod other* from working. On Monday last, tbe contractors procured a number of German laborers, to work on their own term*. and dreading an attack from the lri*h laborer*, who had col lected in large nnmber* at tbe place where the Germans were landed, they called in the aid of the military to protect them. Several military companies arrived on the ipot, wi.h two field pieces, which were kept loaded ready for any emergency. But there wa* no breach of the peace, although they had a well-grounded appreken ?ion of violence, a* the Iriih laborer* had threatened to maltreat any one who ihould work on any other term* than thoie for which they had itruck. The laborers say, on the other hand, that tbey had been compelled to work from daylight till dark, and sometimes by moon light; that tbe strike was general, and not confined to those in the employ of the contractors; that the laborers of Brooklyn had formed themselves into an association, and had, alter deliberating in publio meeting, re solved not to work for less than seven shil lings a day, and not longer than ten hours ? Thut the laborers in the employ of the Atlantic Dock contractor* wore the.laat to strike?that the other con tractor* acceded to the term* of the labourer*?that they had no deiire or intention to molest the Herman*?that the employment of military force, for the preservation ol the poace, was quite unnecessary?and that tbey had taken no part in the atfruy of Thursday evening?and in proof of their auertiona, they say .that the Germans who returned to N. York 1. om work, on Wednesday evening, were escorted to tbe boat by a body of Irish laborers, and treated by them in the most friendly manner. On Tuesday the military were withdrawn, and poaco roigned in the city until Tuunday ovening, when, as soma of tbe Ger mans were returning from work along Columbia street, near Kelsey's alley, stones were thrown at thorn by some wanton*oys, and one of the Germans baviDg resented this treatment, they were oaaailed by aomo ot the di**i- 1 pated Irish, reaidiuft in and about Kelaey's alley, and a general acuffle ensued, moatly delensivo on the part of the German*. The latter scattered, and ran in all di rection* Three of them ran down KeUey'a allay, to wards the .river?one doubled on pursuer*, and aa- 1 caped- The other two got away by some means, to the place where they work, where they remained all night. Theae are the two men *aid to be muting, and who were,*uppo*ed to have been drowned. The Deputy 8ha riff happening to pats at the time of the affray, called in the aid of some citizens and arrested two of the most pro minent in the scuffle, who were afterwards rescued by their friends. Stone*,club* and brickbat* were freely u*ed and many of the German* were aa<)ly beaten. One man had hi* head bruiied and cut in *uch a manner that the phyaician at first feared oongestion of the brain. We are happy to understand that he is now in a fair way to recover. The military were immediately ordered out, upon the intelligence of the scuffle having reached the authorities ; ana they remained under arms until mid night, when they were dismissed, with orders to be ready to turn out at a moment's notice. No disturbance has since taken place, and we are led to hope that tran quility is permanently restored. Two Irishmen, named Michael Egan and Thomas Lee, were arrested on Friday morning about 11 o'clock, in Court st, having been point ed out to tbe officers by two German*, us some of those i engaged in the affray of the previous evening. Another i version of thi* ciicumstance is, that the Iriihmen made an asiault on the German* in Court itreet, and were im mediately arretted. We believe the lormer it correct Several arresti have aince beon made, and an examine- ; tion was to have taken place yecterday evening. The grand jury were in *ession during the entire of Friday, j The name* of thoae arreated for participation in the riot*, are Michael Egan, Thomn* Lee, Patrick Kehoe, Bernard Scalding, Patrick Sullivan, Timothy Gleeaon, and Thoa.

Wa have heard no one estimate tho length of time it will take to repair it, at |SM than eight daya, and many aay two weaika. The culvert over the small stream where the break occurred, remains whole. At Macedon Locks there are some fif teen or twenty boats with merchandise from the east, which cannot be locked through. This side of tbe break there are about fifty, and before they can begin to mors eastward, the number will undoubtedly be greatly in creased.

As shown by the laat report of the traateea of the Pitts burgh Oas Works, it appears that the total revenne of the Oaa Works for 1846, amounted to $36,647 00. The total expenses, including loss by metres and aervioes by the lire of the 10th of April, of $1,638 >4, amounted to $31,636 68, leaving a balance of >3,903 80, in favor of the works. The total gain since the commencement of the works, amounted to $36 906 33. There have been, up to December 1,1846, eight mileaand one fifth of two inch pipe laid in the city; and the quantity of coal carbon ized during that period was 37,639 bushels. There are 31 banda employed in the vartoua departments of the Oas Worka. The consumption of Oaa is gradually en larging, the number of private consumers having been increased to the number of 400, being 60 mora than dur ing the preceding year.

The money market ia decidedly eaaier, and quotation* for atocki cannot fail to advance. At the 8econd Board pricea recovered ail they lost yss terday afternoon, and aome of the railroad ateck* ruled a little above quotationa current at the cloaa on Friday. Thaae alight reaction* atrengthen apeculatora, and ia. aura more permanency in the improvement afterward* realised. The bank* cloae their quarterly report* on Thuraday next, and it ia poaaibla the money market, in the early part of next week, may be a little tighter than experienced for aome time peat; but the contraction will only be temporary, and it would not aurpriae ua, if the banka after the flrat of May, let out their loan! liberally, and we experience between thia and the time for another contraction, a very conaiderable (peculation in atock*. There ha* recently been a very great change iathe character of the holdera of theae aecuritiea. The contraction in the money market haa compelled many weak holder* to sell; and the preaent owners have more capital, have purchased at low pricea, and are therefore more ablPto hold. The beara cannot frighten these ope ratora, as they have so frequently the regular bulls in the market, as they can afford to hold over, and are not compelled to force them off. The bull* now are in fact the strongeat party, and it i* not impossible but that they will carry prices up nearly to the point from which they fell. There ia.. a* yet, very little doing in foreign exchange* The packet of the lit of May, from Boaton for Liverpool, will probably take out remittance! to a large amount, a* many who have put off their payment* on the other ode a* long a* possible, on account of the contracted atata of tha money market on thi*, will no doubt avail themselves or the alight improvement to make rumittancea. Sterling bill* we now quote below tax per cent premium, but tn tbe event of a very active demand apringing up for bill*, the rate* will doubtleta go above that point The importation* recently, have been more limited than uauai, while our export*, have been unuauatly large for the seaaon Since tike receipt of the recent advice* from Europe, quotaiiona for cotton in thia market have ap proached nearer thoie current in Liverpool, and the ex port* of thi* staple will therefore increaae, aa they can be made more profitably. The more pricea become equalized, the greater the probability of larger ship msnts, and a reduction in the'premium for foreign ax. changes. In consequence of the high range of prioes in this market for our principal ataple exports, compared with that in Liverpool, our experta within the peat eight months, compaqpd with tbe corresponding period the year previous, show a falling off in value of about ten miUiona of dollars. In the face of thi* deficiency in our ?sport trade, there has been an increase la our import trade, which ha* produced a balance against na, requiting larfit remittance* to reduce.
