IVEW YORK HKRALD. *aw York, Mat unlay, Bajr ?, IM?i The Weekly Herald. The iVttkly Herald, to be issued this morning, is a very valuable and entertaining number. It contains a l ,i 1 return? of the foreign news brought by the Great Western; the latest intelligence from Mexico, Texas, Giiitomia.&c. &c. ; vivid, interesting and graphic rep rts of the exciting debates in Congress; impor tant correspondence from all parts of this Continent, a id elsewhere?and is illustrated with a beautiful engruving of the " Entombment of Christ," at the French Catholic Church of St. Vincent of Paul, on Good Friday. The paper will he ready for delivery at 8 o'clock this morning Price cents. \< iv* from Europe. The steamship Cambria, with intelligence from Europe, seven days later than that brought by the Great Western, has now been at sea thirteen day*. Th;s steamer has generally made quick voyages, and her arrival may be, therefore, momentarily looked for. Mexican rtnttera?The Revolution In Cali fornia. The stupidityjand weakness of the people, and the seltislme^s and tyranny of their military officers and government, have reduced Mexico to the lowest grade of degradation and infamy. The sun never xhone on a more beauti ful country, and the God of Nature never dispensed his favors to a greater de gree than he has on this now unfortunate country. Yet notwithstanding these natural advantages, Mex ico, frotn certain causes, is now the meanest and lowest in the category of nations. Her people are rul'-d with a rod of iron, and are sunk in imbecility und infamy ; her military rulers are the most des potic and mercenary that ever exercised power; through the effects of successive revolutions, all confidence in government is gone?she is without nn army or navy, and her coffers are empty. There is a never-ending struggle, by a set of designing men, to attain the management of the national af fairs, and the only principle that guides them is self nanrandizement. Such is the condition of Mexico at the present time, and such it has been for a num ber of years. The want of confidence in the central govern ment, "and the imbecility of the government itaelf, in being unable to afford any protection to the dis tant departments of that country, paved the way for u dismemberment of the Mexican nation, and the establishment of independent States. Texas, one of her best departments, after a short and success ful struggle, threw oil' her allegiance, and maintain ed her independent condition for a number of years. Her independence was acknowledged by the United | States, and by several of the Europeen powers. She eventually craved permission to be incorporated with the United States, and is now part and parcel of our great republic. The same elements are still at work, and ere long another slice will secede from the Mexican nation, if it has not already done so, and will assert its independence. The example of Texas is bein? followed by California, which has recently j thrown off the Mexican yoke and asserted its right to independence. Paredes, the present ruler in M-xico, his despatched a fragment of an army to quell this rising of the people; but the attempt will prove abortive in this case, as it did in the case of Texns His conduct is so unpopular and his re sources so limited, that no one believes any thing effectual can be accomplished, sooner or later; there lore, California will be an independent State, and as a natural consequence will desire to be annexed to the United States in the Bame way that Texas did. These events will be hastened by a circumstance that has jujt come to light. The renowned Captain Fremont has been so fortunate as to discover a new route, or p'iss, by which emigrants can reach California in sixty days less time than they could reach it by the route heietofore pursued via Oregon This is a most important diicovery, in the presen1 condition of Mexican affairs. The volume of the tide of emigration that has flowed towards Califor nia within a few years, will be increased ten fold, and the hardy pioneers of the Western country wil' fl.jck in thousands, through this new route, to the shores of the Pacific. The facilities offered by this discovery, will divert a great portion of the tide of emigratiou from Oregon to California, and the sen timents and feelings of the Anglo-American emi gr tnts will soon accomplish a complete revolution, thit will for ever separate that country from Mexico. This appears to be the natural course of event*; and it is only fulfilling the destiny which we were appointed to carry out. The spread of the Anglo American people, and with them the principle* of free government, over the whole continent, ap pears to be an appointed thing, and men now living will see it accompliahed. It California shou'd succeed in her purposes?and who will doul>t it 1?other departments will follow her ex ample ; and, piece by piece, the whole northern States of Mexico, with all the gold and silver mines, will be tiaally absorbed in this great repub lic. Tnrough the magic influence* of electricity und steam, the whole will be a? one family, and the power that protects the nearest poition, will be equally hs etl'ective in protecting the most distant. It is useless to speculate on the mighty result* to mankind, and to the progress of civilization, that would llow from this great work. None, however, would experience those benefit* in a greater de gree tli.iu the Mexicans themselves. They would be raised from their present abject condition, and form a portion of the greatest nation in existence. They would have the benefit of good government and good laws secured to them; and, miserable as they are at present, would, when united to us, exhibit to the eyes of the world a nation greater than any that has ever existed, and which Rome, in the height of her glory, never approached Mr. Webster and his Ardent Friends.?None of the public journal j appear to be so ardent in their sympathies for Daniel Webster?who want* none? or to multiply epithets on the head of Mr. Ingersoll, to a greater extent, than the Courier and Enquirer. How is this 1 It is a singular fact that the Courier and Eto/uirer was one of the firat, and the principal journal, throughout the breadth of thia land, to de nounce Daniel Webster on the Ashburton treaty, and to accuse him of giving up American rights to the British negotiator. These attacks were written with great power, very savage, without Hausages, and with prodigious energy?even far be yond the virulence and bitterness of the charge* now brought by Mr. Ingeraoll against him on the same subject. Singular enough, since that time th? Courier anii Enquirer ha* eaten up it* own word*, with as much relish as the Hon. Mr. Sawyer eat* his own sausages. But why did the Courier and En ??*"<'opiost-Mr. Wtbster then ! Wai it because some ot the secret service money did not come in a certain direction 1 And ha* thi* silence now come about in consequence of these negotiation*, alluded to by Dr. Bacon, which will come up on the trial that take* place befor* the Superior Court aext week '? A solution of thi* difficult question we shall now look for at the trial ot the famous libel suit ?Webb v*. Bacon?which comea ofl next Monday. Mr Pot.k's Administration.?It i* a singular tact, thu* early in the history ot Mr. Polk'* admim* tration, that not a single leading democratic journal throughout the country, beyond the District of Co lumbia, support* him warmly or enthusiastically, or oven p?y? much about him at all In thi* part oi the country, and also in the South, there i* an extreme lukewarmn?-as toward* him, which i* perfectly freezing and appalling. He ha* braken up his party on the Oregon and other question*, and nothing now can mend it. Bcbbi.k Banuiw ?Now that the passage of the sub-treasury act may be delayed for a long time, bubble banking and paper money are showing forth their heads again. Bank expansions will rapidly increase, from thi* forward. I ? Bishop HroHis? His Rxpshtanck Aitn Conver sion ?We have seen a condensed report, in s morn ing paper, of a capital sermon delivered on Sunday last, at St Patrick's Cathedral, in this city, by the Kight Kev Bishop Hughes This is the first lime the Bishop has addressed his Hock since hisretnrnfrom Europe; and had we known that he was about to preach, we would have sent a reporter to iaraish a full and accurate report of the discourse. We are rejoiced to find that the tone of this dis course is mild and temperate, and such as becomes a prelate of the Catholic church. In this particular it forms a striking contrast with the inflammatory address delivered by a certiin Bishop, of a like name, some years ago, in Carroll Hall. At that time the Bishop wanted experience and self-com mand. He wished to fallow the leadership of his great prototype, Daniel O'Connell; and he thought, by uniting religion with politics, he could revolo tionize the masses, stifle the voice of public opin ion, and build up a sort of politico-religious dynas ty, totally at variance with the spirit of free institu tion. Tis true he had many examples in the his tory of Europe in the dark ages. But to attempt to introduce into practice, in this enlightened age, and in this oountry, the superstitious absurdities which have been long since exploded, even in Europe, was utter madness. The experiment not only was un successful, but hid well nigh involved the experi menter in ruin. He made Mr. O'Connell his model; aad he thought that by using the same means, he could evolve similar effects. But he forgot that he lived in a different hemisphere?and that to make religion an instrument for the attainment of politi cal ends, in the present advanced state of public opinion, was altogether chimerical. Like the ma gician's servitor, in the German legend, by employ ing the cabalistic words which his master had used, he succeeded in evoking a whole legion of spirits which he found it impossible to lay; and the luck less experimenter had well nigh fallen a victim to the demons of his own evoking But he was not the only recipient of the lamen table effects of his indiscretion. At Carroll Hall he sowed a wind, the whirlwind of which was reap ed by the whole country. By his unwarrantable mixing up of religion and politics, he originated the native American party; and was, consequently, the cause?although, we are sure, without any such intention?of all the bloodshed, calamities, and evils, which have marked tha rise and progress of that misguided faction. Well-judging men, of all classes and denominations, were indignant that a priest, high in station in his church, should soil the garments of his holy office, by bringing them into contact with the filthy gutter of party politics. Many men of sound judgment, and of the very best intentions, were thus driven into the native'party, although wholly opposed to their proscription and intolerance. The Bishop did not, probably, foresee that all those evils would spring from his rash un dertaking. He trusted to his own talents, and to the obedience which the Catholic community have always paid to the dictates of their church, for the accomplishment of his ends; but he reckoned without his host. His talents but served to make his indiscretion more glaring; uud the Catholic community at once rebelled against this extraordi nary assumption of temporal authority. It is well known that a large number of Catholics joined the native ranks, doubtless disgusted with the conduct of him from whom they were led to expect better things. In ascribing the rise of the native movement to Bishop Hughes' indiscreet experiment at Carroll Hall, we do not mean to say that the elements of all the bigotry, intolerance, and fanaticism, which have marked the progress of that party, did not ex ist in society before the Carroll Hall affdir. There is no doubt that they did exist, in a greater or less degree; but they might have harmlessly slumbered 1 on till doomsday, had not the Bishop set Are to the train. We are truly rejoiced that this distinguished pre late has at length seen the fatal error of which he was guilty, and has repented of it. Nothing can give us greater pleasure than to record his repen tance and conversion; nor must we omit to say, in all modesty, that to us belongs the principal merit ot the conversion of this eminent divine. We have always had a brotherly affection for him. We have watched his carter with great interest, since his first outset in Episcopal life. We saw that he pos sessed piety and talent of no ordinary character.? We contributed, in no small measure, to raise him to that proud position, as a Christian prelate, which he held before the lamentable downfall which re sulted from his interference with polities. We were the first to tell him of his error. We admin istered to him a salutary rebuke. He winced under the reproof, and plunged deeper into his folly and indiscretion. We felt ourselves called upon to apply the rod of correction, although it was most painful to our feelings to do so. And although : he was not at the time sensible of the kindness of our motives, his eyes have since been opened, and he has abjured his folly. Ever since his fall we have had him under training, in a sort of penitential pro bation. We have admonished him, from time to time, on the sinfulness of prostituting the cross, by making it subservient to party purposes?of soiling his vestments, by bringing them into contact with the purlieus ot partizan politics?and we are happy to say our admonitions have not been without effect. He has lately manifested deep contrition for the scandal he has given. He has knelt down at the great confessional of public opinion, and humbly confessed his sins, and besought forgiveness. As one of the authorised ministers of that public opi' nion, we, in virtue of our solemn office, repeat over his repentant head, the words of absolution?'"aie tolvo te ab omnibus peeatit vettris," $*e. Bishop Hughes is now the elevated and upright?the talent ed and the pious Bishop ot the diocese of New Yor*. We warrant him as Buch, and indorse for his continuance in the same during his whole life. Bribkry in thje Pennsylvania Legislators.? We see it stated in the papers, that the grand jury of Harrisburgh has indicted a person named McCook, for attempting to offer a bribe of $500 ,to a savagely virtuous member of the Pennsylvania Legislature. The attempt was offered in order to prevent his pursuiag a certain course, in voting on an en- 1 quity in relation to the Lehigh Bask. This Mc Obok was a bad cook in his operations at Harris burgh. If he had offered any member of the Penn sylvania Legislature, or any other Legislature, a bank bill of fiftv or a hundred dollars, cash down, it is very likely it would have been taken in silence, and nothing more heard of it. But the offer of such an extravagant sum as five hundred dollar*, to a member of that Legisla* rare, was so much above the par value ot the human article, that the man was astounded?astonished? frigh'ened?and thought the world was coming to an end?hence his refusal of it; and ultimately an indictment is found. The trial, however, will be a droll affair in the way of small potatoes. The old United States Bank?now dead and gone?one* purchased the whole Legislature of Pennsylvania, and called it " lumbering"?but there were good cooks in those days. Important Opinion ?Mr. Hackett, the eminent actor, gives us his opinion, in one of the morning papers, of the affair between Forrest and Macready, respecting a dance, or jxu it mouchoir, in Hamlet, it is very satisfactory. Will Mr. Hackett also give us his c'pjaion on the Ingersoll and Webster quar reM also, on who struck Billy Patterson I also, on the man what married Captain Schiadley 1 Do. Important opinions, for 9100 a piece, are plenty in law?Ibut important critical opinions, gratis, are quite scarce. low* Li.sctions ?The election for delegates to the Convention in Iowa, has resulted favorably to tf?* democrats. So tar as heard from, the whigs have elected 7 membn and the democrats 14 ? There wdl be a very large democratic majority in i the Convention. Law Courts ?The law courts will be all open on Monday next, and some important, interesting, and amusing caaea, will come up Tor trial. Among the latter claaa, i* that of Webb vs. Bacon, to which we have already adverted, and which we intend to report in lull. In the County Court, the case oi Jus tice Drinker will also commence, and the J udges of the Supreme Court will open the May term. We have repeatedly adverted to the injurious effects of the preaent jury ayatem in our civil and crimina1 courts, and the difficulty of procuring an impartia' and intelligent jury to administer the laws of the State, or the country, from the fact, of their not being adequately or partially remunerated for their services. Among the projected law reforms which it ia in contemplation to introduce before the ap proaching convention, none demand a more careful or serious attention than a radical change ia our whole jury system. There is a claaa of men who hang about the law courts, who make a livelihood by being empannelled as talesmen on caaea which come up; and their quati purity and impartiality in the jury box, frequently affords fresh material for litigation, to such lawyers as have no scruples in further plucking their clients, by bringing caaea up before the higher courts, often on wild, vague, and frivolous exceptions, to the prejudice of both law and justice. Three-fourtha of the litigation which fluods our courts, cguld be obviated by a ju dicious reform of our present jury system. The 1 Joe Gulicks, and speculators who trade upon the present system, would not figure so frequently in ; our courts of law; and aa the democratic party are pledged to the utmost to give ua a substantial law reform, we trust they will not alone confine them aelves to the judiciary, but so correct the abuses in our present jury system, and modify and aunplify the atatute and general law of the State, aa will en- j able the people and the country to place Bome confi- ' dence in the administration of justice. Most Distinguished Americans in Europe.? Those members of the present Congress who cut the greatest figure in the European newspapers, at this time, are Mr. Webster of Massachusetts, and Mr. Sawyer, of Ohio. Mr. Web3ter is celebrated m the newspapers for his great intellectual powers, and Mr. Sawyer for his equally great power in eating sausages. Battle on the Rio Geande.?We expect every day an exciting account of a bloody battle between the American troops and the Mexicans, at the Rio Grande. If they don't get up a fight, they will be considered poor devils indeed. Niugerism.?Tuis is the name of the new ion, which has principally been the cause of the defeat ' and the route of the whigs, in the recent election of delegates for the State Convention. Niggerism and j Fourierism now go together. Thrilling Narrative?We shall publish, at come in. definite period between this time and the year 1948, the i log of the (team ferry boat Suffolk, on a recent trip from the Fulton Ferry to the foot ol Fulton ttreet, Brooklyn, j The adventures are of the most interesting character ; and are related with great piquancy by the daring and j adventuroui captain, who, we understand, has per- , formed several voyage* across the Eatt River. His ao- | count of how he was obliged to stop the boat three i several times on its passage?once for a Jersey lumber | schooner, once for a clam boat from Coney Island, and | the third time for a Cape Cod fishing smack that ran right athwart her bows; and the touching relation of I his hardships and privations during the voyage?having j aotually lallen short of segars before he was half way j across?form one cf the most thrilling end exciting nsr 1 ratives ever issued from the press. The work will be [ handsomely embellished with splendid wood-cuts of j steamboats of every possible size snd shape, furnished j from our job printing offlce. The engravings have a high reputation, having formerly been used in the book of the Exploring Expedition, to illustrate the positlon( of one of the boats in a storm in the South Seas. Theatrical and Musical. Piii Thcatbb.?Notwithstanding the threatening aipact of the weather, there ??? ? select and fashionable audience laat evening, to witness the fifth representation of " Antony and Cleopatra." This tragedy is not an act lag play, even when cnt down and metamorphosed, as in the acting copy. It is more adapted tothestndy than to the stage. Yet the gorgeoutneis of the oostnme and appointments, and the splendor of the well-simulated magnificence of the East, terve to relieve the tedium arising from the sameness of most of the characters. It is to be repeated this evening, for the last time, with the amusing farce of " Lend me Five Shillings,*' in which Mr. Barrett and Mr. Bass take the principal part*. Mrs. Mowatt will appear on Monday evening, and, no doubt, her first appearance since her return from the South will fill the house. Bowmv Thbatxk.?The "Wizxard of the Wave" was again the " rage" last night at the Bowery, and drew together a large audience. To-night it will be enacted for the laat time, when those who have not yet witneased this splendid and rich entertainment, would do well to avail themselves of the opportunity, wbieh may not again occur tor a long time It is a piece so fall of vari ety, and so deep in interest, that none will come away from seeing it without feeling that their time has been well bestowed. GnccitwicH Thbatbb ?" Beauty ani the Beast" was pei formed most capitally at the Greenwich laat night, and drew forth the loudest applause. The John Quill of Mr. W. Chapman, is one of the richest things we ever witnessed, so comically and 10 well does he render that laughable part. Miss Drake is also excellent in the cha' racter of Beauty, for she looks it as well as plays it> to perfection. The greatest attractions are offered to night for the benefit of Mr. Grattan, it being his laat ap pearance. Yankee Hill and other eminent talent have volunteered for the occasion. The " Rake's Progress," " A Wife for A Day," " Bombastes Furioso," and the first act of " Bounty and the Beast," should each of them be sufficient to draw a good house ; but when com bined as they are in the bill tor to-night, they must draw a bumper. The management aunoui.ce a re-engagement of Yankee Hill for four nights, to commence on Mon day. During his last engagement, the house was crowded nearly every night. CiiaiiTr't Minstbxls.?These fine Ethiopean minstrels gave another concert last evening at Palmo's, to a crowded audience. This company will long be remem bered by the ci'.izons of New York. The soft touoh of " them bones" will ring in our ears so long as we have ears, and the sweet tonoi of that violin will ever awake within us some thought of melody. Their instrumental music in of a very superior order, and the harmony of their voices meat exqusite. They will ever be welcome to u< New Yorkers, who love to while away an evening in listening to sweet sounde. We bespeak for them a cordial reception wherever they go, for they are fine artists and gentlemanly fellows. To-night is their last performance, and they will have a buaber. M. Da Nobohha.?'This gentleman's concert, which waa to have taken place on Wednesday, and was post poned in consequence of the inclemency of the weather, will come ofT on Tuesday evening next We under stand that tickets have been secured by most of the amateurs and patrons of musical science throughout the city. We have no doubt there will be a good house, as independently ef the fame of M. do Noronha, as an artist of high merit, the singing ot Madame Oito, who will contribute the aid of her sweet voice and musical ability to the entertainment of the audience, would be sufficient of itself to fill the house. Mr. Templeton gave a concert in Cincinnati on tho 3*th uit. The journals of that city speak of him in terms olthe highest admiration. Miss Mary Ann Lee was to take her benefit in Boston last evening. ? Mr. Brougham gave another of his Irish entertainments in Salem, on Thursday evening laat Mr. ^Murdoch was to take a benefit in Philadelphia, last night. Now Publication. Rbpl'blication or mr Bbitiih and Fobxioh Mboical Ravisw.?The enterprising Philadelphia publishers, Zieber and Co.. are about to issue a lac simile Ameri can edition of this excellent medical periodical. They are to commence the publicetion with the July number, and the work will be famished at three dollars per annum-a great saving on the price ot the English edi tion No member of the medicel profession in this oonntry, should be without this work, as each number contains a rttumf of all the Iaiporiant cases that cosno under the notice of the faculty in England; besides some able pep??? ?mitten, and a variety of into resting medical and mleo llaneous reading.

The poor laml liea, who have hat juet furniture enough for their nocet ?itiei, peeked that on a h-ndcart, ana off they etarted: end the rich procured their carti and had their splendid furniture carefully packed and conveyed to their new retidencea.

It waa certainly a moving ipectacle -croc key waa break ing, carmen ? wearing, mud a pattering, furniture crock ing, women acolaing, men itirring, and every thing in one great hurly burly.

Nobody pro&tad bv the operation but the carmen; and, ore midnight, tho din of tho day waa ceaaedi, and many thouaand peraona rooted their tired bodiea in new homoa. Thb Ambbican Inititotb?Tho momberi of tho Ame rican Institute intend to exhibit at tho Pair, to bo held in Washington on the 90th of thia month, all tho fancy artlclea that have been manufactured in tho city of New York, in every branch of induitry, within tho laat throe or lour yoara, and lor that purpose they are now, by their agents, going round to tho different manufactnrera ana artizani, urging them to send to tho Inetituto auch mannfacturea and works of art aa they have on hand. They alao propoee to charter the steam boat Mohegan to take them to Waahington, and to give their owner* a free passage, going and returning. Staoxatiok or thb Retail Tbaob?We do not remem ber, for aovenl year* peat to havo heard ao general a complaint of the dullneaa of trade amongst the mercan tile interests a* there la thia apring. The retail store keeper* up town, are alao loudly complain!n? of tho amail amount of businoaa they are doing. From our own obaervation, aa waU aa from information wo have received from other source*, we believe that these com plainta are well founded, and Uat a general languor and want of confldonoo prevail* amongst all claaaoa of our baiino** pooplo. Tho eame briakne** and activity con spicuous in former year*, during the month of April in our buiine** thoroughfares, ia not at all observable thi* ?eaion. A* a proof of thia, in paaaing yesterday from the foot of Fulton street, on tho North River, along tho dock*, to the toot of tho same street on the Eaat River we could, without burthening our memory or givinc ourselves much trouble, count tho number of cart* wo encountered on our way; and in addition to thia fact, an air of llatleaanoa* and inactivity wa* diaoornablo ??i>ihp the whole route. We remember taking the same route thia time twelvemonths, and wo alao remember that

tbeae same streets, at that time,were *o literally blockod up with cart* and wagon*, loaded with aU descriptions of merchandize, going to and returning from the wharvea, that it not unfrequently happened a delay of twenty minutea to half an hour would elapeo before a free pasaage could be made for them; and that from tho crowd* of persons paaaing and repaaaing along the aide walk*, wa ouraelve* were delayed in moat of the itreeta through which wo paaaed, from flvo to ten minute*.? Now how are we to account for thi* change in our com mercial affairs 1 Doe* it ari*o from want of energv and ?pirit in our merchant* and buiine** men, to ?peculate and inve?t capital 7 We think not. Wo believe there ia a* much enterprise and spirit now in the country ai there baa been at any time within the laat aix year*, and that a large amount of capital ia at preaent lying idlo, which the holdera would gladly invest could they do it with safety. But we believe tho change in our business pur ?uiti i* the reiult of the unaettled itate of our foreign relation* with England, which, from the high ground taken by the President and Mr. Buchanan, aro not after all, ao likely to be ipeediiy .ettled.

' Strange noiaaa wara occasionally heard, and rumen of j " (koala and goblina damned," km in all qutfaia about , the neighborhood. The owners of tk? dwelling became alarmed, and mada aeveral effort* to git rll of their in spired tenant. Tba mora potent agtncy of the law, through aome two or three sturdy looking offlcars, waa employed, however, on yesterday, to kc? tka retreat of the goddetf, and eject, ri et mrmti, lie divinity that dwelt therein, the cause of all the recent fean In tke neighborhood. Hera a *cene presentedltself, to a large and gaping crowd ot epectatore, that caned considerable , excitement. Tba gallant officers would with leaa kesi tation, have faced tome armed miscreant?nd violator of the law ; bat the visions of antique teapoh, broken skil lata, suspicious looking griaaetee, pola, pati and aauce pana, with an altered copy of tba veritable '? cauldron" which Bkakspeare haa painted for the witthes in Mac beth. all teemed to operate like magic upot the officera, who looked on in ailence, until their attention waa ar rested by the mewing of a large black tun cat, that chimed in moat sonorously with the noiae of the crowd; and hereupon they commenced removing tin furniture through tke windows, and pitched it Into the atreet. Mra Willia, who is a lady of very atrong ud marked featurea, and rather well-looking, about fort) yeara of age, bore the acene with a degree of heroic maanaalmity which ahowed great power* of mind. She mi(ht, witn eaae, have " called np apirita from the vaaty deep," and acattered her oppreaaora to the four winda of heaven; ! bnt aha did not; and her pile of lurnituio lay for a?mo time on the atreet, until aha wat enabled to procun a oartman. There waa no sympathy evinced lor herby the crowd who surrounded her in thia emergency, mid the rude joke and rough jeat wara to be heard in all quartora. A good-natured female darkey occasional? condemned the eruelty of the law, and the hardheartd neaa of" do white peepel," for " aich dianatrai behav#." We would not be in tke aheea of the drmmatii pertma who ao roughly treated thia lady for a good deal, aa *e could with eaae turn them into ao many weeping vol Iowa, or wild coona, if aka chose to exercise her powira of divination.

InTBLLMagncB Orricis.?" One half of the world d?a not know how the otker half live," ia a hackneyed saf- I ing, but one which will al waya be true aa ever. Nelthtr ! doea one half know anything about the vnriooa plaia pnraued in auch a city aa New York, for the purpose ?f { aponging money from tke unwary. One of tke moatst fective rneana of doing this ia by the intelligence ofllcet, 1 The manner of conducting the bualnea* in theae estab- , lishments ia ao plauaible that the stranger, for whoae ea- ' pecial benefit they are intended, la gulled into the ex-, pectation of a good altuation, with a large aalary and lit tle to do; but auddenly finds himaelf gulled out of a nice little fee and left to feed upon air and anticipation. Wt do not intend theae remarks to apply to all intelligence offices. A few or them are conducted upon tonlft* terma, and one or two have been eatabliahed by female*, whoae principal buaineaa ia to procure female domestic* for familiea. Moat of those kept for thia purpose are fairly conducted, hut there ia another claaa whoae *ole buaineaa ia swindling. A young man come* from the country to thia big city, with the ko|<e of a "situation," expecting to And them aa thick aa biackberriea, and rea dy out and dried, only waiting for him to atop in to them. When he reachea here, however, ke finda out kia miatake. There are at least ten ap ->licanta where there ia one vacancy. He ateya two or three days, and Anally determine! to go back to the plough and hoe ; but taking up a newtpaper, hi* eye lights on an advertisement like the following:?"Want ed, a young man for a flour at ore; one from the country preferred Enquire between 10 and 3, at No atreet." Hia heart loans aa he reada it "A young man from the country !" That's my case exactly ; ae off he'the number mentioned, expecting to And,it a flour atore; but instead of a flour store, it ia a little office in some bye atreet, hardly large enough to creep into. Upon entering and enquiring, he Is told that he can probably have the situation, but muat flrst pay a fee of two dollars. This being dono, he is despatched to a partner of the intelligence office keeper, who pretends to keep the Aour store, and to whom some dozen others have been despatched the same day, on the same errand. Arrived there, he either tells him that the pi <ce haa Just been Ailed, or that he will have a vacancy in a few daya, or some tale to put off the "young man from the country." He, after Knocking about a few weeks, and being deceived adosen times, by his kind friend of the intelligence office, who would "do anything to get him a situation," gets entirely out of money; and gets home again in the best way possible. Thus hundreds of un suspecting youths, are yearly gouged in this manner. From a gentleman once employed aa a clerk in one of these offices, we learn that the lowest receipts were eighteen dollars per day, and the highest forty-six; and all without any equivalent beiog rendered The "young men from the country" should beware of these estab lishmsnts, and if they will corns to the city, depend upon their own exertions to procure a situation.

Upon being rescued from this awful situation, he was taken to the above hospital, where he very soon expired from the injuries received. Aninqueat will be held to-day. Police Intelligence. Mat 1.?Important Jlrreotofjack Canter?Officer Den nii'on left llu* city on Wednesday last (or Boiton, in March of John A.

Offi cer Denniaton, in company with oonaublo Clapp. search ed through Boeton in every " crib" and " deo," for this " cute" thief, but without aucceai; coniequently Mr. Dennifton left Boston for New Yoik, yesterday morning, (Friday,) and when the cars stopped at a place oalled Dennisonville, abaut 76 miles on this side Boston, which is a stopping place to take refreshments, Mr. Dennis ton stepped out to take a look, always in hopes of drop ping on his man; when who should he spy near the front of the hotel, but a fellow called Oaorge, whom he knew to be a "slippery" customer in the " queer" business; when Just at that moment be spied his man. Jack Canter, in the act of spanking to thia fellow. Mr. Denniaton im mediate It took him into custody, and on " frisking" hia, he found on his persona new revolving six barrel piatol, Allen's patent, heavily loaded, which be was in the act of using, when this vigilant officer grappled him and forced him on board the railroad car, just aathecara were under way. He i? now once more safely lodged in the Tomba, and we think Mr." straw" bail will be some what puzzled to extricate this notorious scoundrel from the punishment he so richly merits. Officer Denniston certainly deserves much credit for the arrest of this des perate countei feiter.

She became acquainted and attached to a young man called Joseph French, who was bartender at the hotel where she lived; consequent ly they got married ebeut five weeks ago, and came on to this city, and arrived on last Saturday, and put up at a boarding-house, No. 47 Robinson street Oa Tuesday evening last he persuaded her to take a walk up the i Bowery, stating thst he wished to see a Mr. Matthews, with whom ha was engaged as bartender some years : ago. On goiig up the Bowery, he dropped a key, and on picking it np, he a>ked his wife, Mary, to give him her bunch of keys, so that he might place this key on the ring. She did eo;and on placing on the hey, he put the whole of them into his p >okot. Ou arriving at the < porter house, he requeeted Mary to remain outside, I while he went in te see Mr. Matthews. She, mained waiting for over an hour, and finding he did not return, proceeded home, when, to her utter astonish ment. she discovered that her husband had opened her trunks with the keys he had obtained, and carried of the whole of her $6tf Thia, certainly, is a most cruel transaction, to aay the least of it, and we sincerely bope that if there i< any law touching this Matter, that he may be severely punished.
