[NEW YORK HERALD. Nrw \ orU, Tuesday, Mmy 3, >? ? Tf 'i|3f The CambrU'i Mull* and Passengers. It is yet doubtful whether the mail*, or the list of the passengers by the Cambria, can reach town to-day or not Wo rather think they will not?il tliey do, we will publish the Tact in our evening edition. I'lti Arrival and Going Ashore of the Cain* L>rlu.?Tlie Mews. The city wab "tartled yesterday afternoon, by the arrival of the intelligence, at the Hi raid otiice, that (lie tine steamer Cambria, in trying to roaeli Uos ion harbor, had gone ashore at Cape Cod, in con tinence of one of those delicious spring fogs which sometimes, for six weeks at a time, hangs over the coast route of these vessels, from Ilalitax to Boston. This i-> the second or third steamer which lm? met with -uch an accident in the mur derous navigation of that const. It will not, probably. l? the last, unless theCunard company take i' in their wise heads to run these vessels di re;! from Halifax to New York. Fortunately, no lives have been lost. The news, which is more important than was expected, though only a week later, will be found ,n another column. We give as much as we can to-day. There wa? a great rush for the Extra, at i ir office, yesterday afternoon, and they went otl like hot corn. The complexion of this intelligence, at the first blush, aeems to bo favorable to the commercial mtdrests of this country?the political intelligence, particularly on Oregon, is very meagre, but quiet. There i?, however, in English and French affairs? not to say in Spain and other states?a deep under swell?u hollow tone in the movements of society -which evidently precedes some great and mighty earthquake, hurricane, or eruption in the present organization of society in Western Europe. Gor yeon* di?play and horrible destitution appear to be wandering over certain portions of these coun tries, hand in hand, as if to a common grave and n mutual charnal house. In England, there are already serious misgivings whether Sir Robert Peel can succeed in his contradictory measures of the Irish coercion and English corn bills. If ho attempts to carry the former in the House?it has already passed the Lords?a defection of the Irish and free-trade votes is threatened to his corn bill. If such a result should take place, Sir Robert Peel resigns; and then the terrible struggle of the fac tions for supremacy in Great Britain, takes place throughout the empire. This may be the begin ning of a revolution. Franco is equally in a critical condition. The republican elements, and the war spirits, are only waiting lor the death gf Louis Philippe, eiUier by nature or assassination, to burst forth in that ex- ! eaable land, and to throw Europe into consterna tion. The recent attempt at assassination, if suc cessful, would have been tho general signal for revolution in France, and a revolution in France would be a revolution in all Western Europe. Spain is in a like inflammable condition, as tho flight of N'urvaez indicates. On the whole, the news, though somewhat gloomy and foreboding, as respects European political and social affairs, is highly prosperous and encouraging towards the United States. Our great staple seems to be gradually advancing. The Oregon question makes no noise. The only and principal difficulty on that point, arises from the want of skill, decision, and energy of the American Executive?and the want of the like qualities in the British Plenipotentiary. Mr. Polk and Mr. Pakenliam have, thus far, successfully blundered the two nations into a war feeling to wards each other; and by another year's petty and vacillating negotiation, they may get the two bravest and most gallant nations on the lace of God's earth, into a bloody war with each other, and thus trouble the God-monopolizing Archbis hop of Canterbury, and some canting parson at Washington, who thinks dancing desecrates the White House, to prepare .sets of prayers, thank ing Almighty God, respectively, that the British tind the American people, descendants of a com mon stock, have mutually murdered most glori ously, and sent, either to heaven or to hell, so many thousand^ of human beings, all for his glory, tho salvation of souls, and the honor of these two re spective countries. Selah! Tint State Convkntioy.?Wlmt will this body , of mou do 7 This is nn important question to tho people of this State. By the returns, it seems thut there will be a large majority of the demo cratic party in the convention; and that the whigs> as a party, in spite of all their efforts to coalesce witli the different factions throughout the State, have been disastrously defeated. There is, however, a very serious division in the \ ranks of the democracy. One clique?denomi nated tho barnburners?is favorable to Silas Wright and his prospects; the other cliqut?the old hunkers?are in favor of Polk and Marey. Both of these cliques, however, have tho elements of discipline to such a degree that they will re tain their ascendancy in this State, and avail themselvo* of all the dissensions among the whigs to keep it. On the other hand, tho wliigs are dreadfully divided. It is now gonernlly, admitted by both section* oi the whig*, that the cry of niggerum has been the main cause of their defeat through. 1 nut the State; and that the aid they expected from i abolitionism, anti-rentism, and Fourierism, has 1 not come. There seems to be no belief now, that j any ultra notions ran pass the convention ; and, particularly, there seems to be little danger tha' the colored population will be placed on a politi ?Mil level with the whiten. Niggtrism, as it is called, ha* been more fatal to the whigs than any itm they have as yet attempted to force down tho throats of their party; and the probability now is, that the locofocos will connect it so much with tho whig party, in their ulterior movements there, as to accomplish a most overwhelming defeat of tho whigs, and all the i?mt, n#Blu- fall election. In t'net, the quarrels and purposes of Weed and Orceley on one side, and Webb and Brooks on tho other, have a ?I ?< 1 very much in disuniting and defeating the Whigs?and will continue to do the work of the locofocos p-atit. When will the whigs learn oommon sense 1 Musioal Criticism.?It is quite amusing to ob serve the trash which is passed off on some of the pretending journals, as scientific musical eriti. risms. Theso critics talk of A flat, D sharp and C ttaturaJ, with a perfect looseness, and multiply word* without meaning to as grent an extent as ever the school men of the middle nges did in their wordy dialectics. What does the public or the general reader care for the nicest criticism which splits simple tone* into semi-tones, or which pretends to note down the variation of half a note in particular passages of music 1 I is the general effect, described in popular language, that constitutes the best species of musical criticism. All other kinds of criticism are bores. Some nines, indeed, some of these musical critics turn inpudent, copy passages from reviews, and pass thcin off as their own, on unsusj>ccting editors. Not long since, one of these musicians and musi cal critics, actually copied from Blackwood'? i!fnga' xint, a passage which originally referred to Mo /art?altered it so as to apply to Lie Meyer, who was then playing in thi< city, and passed-it off upon the conductor of this journal n<0-hi4 Own rrithjut. Out of good nature and confidence,, it was published without reading at the time; and 'his very critic, it is believed, went round to'his associate humbugs, and got them to make a great tuss about it, as an atrocious plagiarism. We can tfive names and dates, if necessary. Does Charles Per#beeu'know iny thing of this fact 1 Inc*nma*tk* and Pickpim?kft.'s.?'TI^b recent ex. truurdiiiury attempt* U> fir?s this city in thirteen plnrtea in one night, is ? 'act that should arouse the vigilance, iiJt only ol'tho police, l?ut of the citi zens geneAlly. The most untiring watchfulness is absolutely necessary, ti> 1 the protection of life and property. It is now a well ascertained fact, that New York, which is the greatest and most nour ishing city in this country, and one of the greatest corninerciul marts in the world, is the rendezvous of thieves, pickpockets, burglars, blacklegs, incen diaries, counterieiiers, cut-throats, and villuins of every description, troni every quarter of the civd ized world. These characters flock to this city in the spring of the year, with a view to carry on their trades at the races, religious anniversaries, and other gatherings of the people. Meanwhile, in order to keep themselves in practice, they prowl about tho streets in the darkness of the night; and when they cannot obtain plunder by ea sier means, they sot lire to the houses which they wish to rob, in order, amid tho confusion, to com mit their depredations. It behoove*, therefore, no1 ouly the police to exercise nil their rigilance to defeat these sclicmos of incendierism and vil lany, but all our citizens should unite, and lend their aid for tho prevention of crime, and the detection of those miduight scoundrcls. The authorities should require no other urging than the extraordinary fact that wo have mentioned, of the city having 1>een fired in thirteen places in one night, u> make them increase the police force, and to exact from their servants the utmost dili gence in the discharge of their duty. But upon all, we recommend to our citizens the excrciso of unceasing vigilance. Our steam boat landings swarm with English pickpockets, : whoso proficiency in the art is proverbial, and ] who dress in a style of elegance and fashion, in ! order to throw their victims off their guard. As | for blacklegs, one jostles you at every corner, and the purlieus of the Hook and the Five Points teem with tho lower order of criminals. Against the skilfully contrived depredations of this swarin of miscreants, the only safeguard, as we said be fore, is untiring caution. What Wir.L Congress Do!?This is beginning , to be a very serious question among men of busi ness. The present Congress has passed nothing but the notice resolutions, giving power to tho President to terminate the joint oceupanoy of tho Oregon territory, which has been celebrated as a mighty victory by the government editor in the i following poetic, strains, cast into blank verse and 1 blanker meaning:? Polk Hoiinet. Tho stone Which tho Tretidonfi Mesiage, By a 'lint?? calt on "10 toP Of tho Rocky Mountain*, But which Congressional Procrastination Suffered to roll almoit to the bottom, 1* once mora railed to tho top. There, On a rock, itaud* the Chief Magistrate, A man of peace, and slow to anger. The American people, In glorious nationality, surround him. Their representative*, By solemn onactmont, authorize him, *1t Kit diicrttion. To solemnly Inform Great Britain, That Oregon can no longer remain The lubiect of disputed juriidiction, Kxposed to the collision of clashing Interests, And The danger of a border feud, Roady To kindle into a goncral war. Various other measures are now before both , Houses, but with little probability of their passing. The sub-treasury bill, the tariff, and tho ware housing bill, ure before the House, and several other important bills are before the Senate. We doubt whether any of these will pass during the present session, in consequence of the distractions i und dissensions in tho administration forces, in J both Houses. Tho dissensions among tho demo- j cracy are very bitter and very deep seated. They | have been produced, too, in a great measure, by tho policy which Mr. Polk has pursued on the Oregon and other questions, and his vacillations, I from tho first hour of his administration to this date. Law Courts.?Tho case of Webb vs. Baron did not come on yesterday, as was anticipated. It is expected to come off this day, or on Thursday. It will be perceived that the law courts are all open, having commenced the May session in each court. Some interesting and amusing cases are expected to com? tip for trial. War or the Factions.?The Courier and En~ \ quirrr and Erprett continue their bitter war on j the 7Yibunc and Albany Evening Journal. In deed, the conflict has now reached a point from which may be dated an entire revolution of the whig party in this section of the State. Late from St. Dominoo.?We learn from Capt. Creasy, of tho brig Clara, from St. Domingo City ou the 29th ult., that the Dominicans were under arms day and night, in anticipation of an attack from the Haytiens, whom it was rumored would shortly make a descent upon that oity. From Mexico. By a recent vessel from Vera Cruz, (the bark Ann Louisa, Captain Wilson,) we have received our regular files of Mexican papers, from which we make a few interesting translations :? F.l Monitor Rrvublieano, of the 39d Morcb. gives tho I following from La Rtforma:?"A report is circulating abroad, which U generally credited, that President Pare des, in conformity with the promise made to tho nation at San Luis Potosi, baa resolved to march, without delay, to put himself at the head of the troop* destined to operate azainst tho Tcxans and N. Americans who hnve da rod to ?how themielrei opposito Motnmoras " The Rtforma then goes on to applaud this resolution of Paredes, though it had been from tho beginning opposed to his govern ment The same journal states that it was believed either Gwieral Bravo or M. Tornel would be placed at the head of the government during the absence of I'aredes with the ; army. Should this be true, it is probable that by thin < time, both Uen. Taylor and President Paredes, have alrea i dy met together on the field uf battle. It is related by the same journal, that the cause of j the revolt of tho troops at Ban Luis, under General Am , pudia. was their unwillingness to march to fight against 1 Texas. On the morning the intended march was to nave ; taken place,when the troops were drawn up ;n front oftheir i barracks, ready to start tor the seat of war. a low mur j mur was heard among them, and at last it broke out into < the crv, " We will not march"?" We will not goto Texas.1' General Ampudia, on being informed of this, came forward and harangued his troops ; he then laid hold ' upon the Sag. and calling upon them to follow, led the i way. They followed a little distance, as far as the bridge of Klascala, but no further. lle then gave the flag into ' the hands of the proper officer, and left them to be led by 1 their regular captains , but they remained of the sam'o mind, and refused to march against Texas. Krom all . which can be gathered of the state of public feeling in I Mexico, it appean evident, that the people themselves I are quite willing thai Texas, and even California and ] New .Mexico, should leave the Mexican confederacy, and ' join the United States confederacy if so disposed, except ! a few hot headed politicians, whose heads a re stuffod ! with ridiculous ideas of Mexican " glory," nod "fame," and " honor." The same journal which gives the above nccount of the revolt of the troops of San Luis, snys? " These disorder* are the exclusive work of the machi nations of tho enemies of the republic, and of our nation al^/ and independence. Not far from the government, there are those w ho think as much of a war with Texas as they do of undertaking the conquest of Russia." For some time past, we notice in almost all the Mexican papers which comc to hand, nn article taken from a New York paper, headed, " Deplorable Condition of the Ame rican Army in Texas." Tnis traitorous article, drawn up in New York, has given immense pleasure to eertaiu parties in Mexico, and has boon extensively copied ami circulated, as if it were true, er worthy the least notice. Accounts from the province of Purango represent that the Indians have made another irruption into that depart partmcnt, at several difleicirt point*, and are carrying all before them, laying wa*to.the country wherever they ap pear.

Taol IINU OVKK Tutl l VtlTMMl ! ? A very inte resting match cuuod'ui above ?one of the most exciting that hai taken place In this vicinity, within the hut twelve months, between? H. Jonei' bl. g Newburgh C. Bartine's oh. g John Maffit. The former was burked *600 to t'250 against the latter, under the saddle. The odds, previous to the start, was about this figure, and a considerable sum was pending on the roult?other sums were pending as to time, luc., which there is no occasion to note. "Hie track was but in inferior condition, in consequence of the late heavy rains, having spots here aud there, which made it very slippery for the animals as they progressed. At the start, in the tirst heat, Ne w burgh hai the pole, und led the way about a nock in front, at the drawgate he broke and lost some 1*2 length* ; before he reached , the quarter he wias up again and Tost some 6 more lengths; after which be went well to the half, gaining considera bly on Jolm, but a little beyond the half he broke again, 1 which threw his chance out for the heat to all appear ance, but the sorrel followed the example round the top and broke twice, followed by Newburgh, who came ; well up to the drawgate, but he rouM not catch his op ! poucnt, whose rider came home with his hands on his j knees, an easv winner of tho heat, in im. 46 sec. The Second Heat.?The black led, but ero he reached 1 the drawgate broke, but at the quarter was well up, not ' !2 lengths apart; between that and the half, John broke twice, and loll some 10 or 13 lengths behind ere he reach ed the top. Downthc straight aide John came well up, but Ncwbugh maHteuncd his position home in 2m. 42 sec. Third Heat ?6 to 4 was now offered that Newburgh would take the heat, but no takers. John had a sore on his nock just in the rein line, that told wonderfully against him ; every time it was touched he wincod fear I fully, and made him break more than once. At the same | time a heavy mist was falling, so that there was no sec ! ing round tne track. Newburgh led the way a length in front, both going well; at the quarter, the sorrel was up skipping a little ; at the half well together, but tho latter 3 or 4 lengths in the rear. They kept thus round to the draw gate, where the Colonel appeared some 4 or b lengths in tront, which he maintained home in 3 m. 80} sec. Fourth Heat.?Betting at more even, but no taker*. They went off well together?head and head?but by the time the sorrel reached the quarter, he was up and fell some 10 lengths behind, and could not rccovcr home, | which was reacnod by Newburgh somo 12 or 15 lengths ] | in front, in 3 m. 40 see. Fifth Ileat.?Newburgh took the lead by half a length, 1 going woll. 3 to 1 was now offered upon him. It was a I I most pretty trot throughout; both well together at a first | rate speed to the top.jwhere John fell off somewhat; and they kept thu* home without even a break in this heat, Newburgh leading about 3 lengths in front, in 3 m. 36 sec. Tho following is a summary of the result. A match, mile heats, under the aaddle, best 3 in ft, for $750, between II. Jones' bl. g. Newburgh (H. Jones). ..31311 {'. Bartine's cn. g.

This was one I of the most exciting trots that has come off in this vicinity for a length oltime, and a consi derable sum changed' hands on the occasion. Had the track bconina different condition, the tables would havo been turnod, to a vast amount; but as it was, tho matter is not likelv to be terminated thus. Tho pacing match between J. Van Wagner'* May Flower and H. Warton's Chenango Chief, did not come off", in consequence of the lameness of the former. Theatrical and Hiulcal. I *rk. The house ?u filled, last evoning, with the beauty and fashion of tho city, to witness the first ap pearance of Mrs. Mowatt since her return from tho South. When tho lady first came on to the stage, the greeted with warm and hearty demonstrations of applause, which continued for several moments. The piece chosen for the occasion was Lorell's play of Love s Sacrifice," Airs. Mowatt taking the part of Mar garet, and Mr. Vandenhoff that of Matthew Ellmore ? Thcro was a strong cast of characters, and the play went on in admirable stylo. Af Mrs. Mowatt's Margaret, we cannot apeak too highly. It was a highly finished, grace ful and eftoctive piece of acting throughout, and was re ceived by the audience with marked favor. Her voice no# much improved since the last appeared before a New V ork audience. Her style has become moro even and solid, and we are no longer lea in doubt aa to tho rank which '* dostined to assume in her arduous profession.? j "ot me?n t0 insinuate that Mrs. Mowatt has al ready attuned perfection in her art. That is only to bo acquired after long and arduous study and practice. Sho has not yet attempted those great tragic characters which rendered Mrs Siddons immortal ; but she evinces in the characters which she now takes, such purity of taste, such accuracy in conception, and mature judgment, and such naturalness of acting, that we do not risk too much in saying that when she docs attompt those leading cha racters, she cannot fail. The character of Margaret al lowed her full scope for the exercise of her undoubted gonitis. The part abounds with gushes of puro feeling, tender affection, and lofty heroism, which render it high *T'attractive throughout. There were two passages in which her rending differed from our conception, but our limited space will not allow us at present to point them out i be same cause proventa us adverting just now to those few blemishes in lier stylo which struck us laitt evening, and which wo will have time to point out during the re mainder of her engagement Her voice, during the first act, was slightly tremulous and uneven, but it afterwards assumed a rich sweetness which harmonized admirably with the part. Mr. Vandenhoffs Ellmore really took us by surprise. We have never seen him to so much ad vantage. lie grasped the character with such power, and so completely identified himself with it, that he car ried the audience completely with him, and illicitod from them spontaneous bursU of applause. Mr. Dyott'a La : font was excellent, as was Fishers Jean Kusc, Bar rett's St. Loo, and Mrs. Abbott's Herminie. Of tho other characters we have not time to speak, but they i were all excellent. At the closo of the play, in accord i ance with the repoated and tumultuous calls of the audi i encc, Mr. Vandenhoff led Mrs. Mowatt before the cur tain, w hen she was greeted with a perfect storm of applause, and a magnificent bouquet was thrown j from a private box, and was gracefully picked up and handed to her by Mr. Vandenhoff. That gentleman, with a most becoming modesty, declined participa tion in the plaudits that were lavished upon tho lady, aud when retiring with her off the stage, he waa greeted i with such unmistakeable marks of applause, that lie was obliged to return and bow his acknowledgements. To night, Knowlea'i play of "The Wife," Mrs. Mowat as Mariana, and Mr. Vandenhoff as Julian St Pierre. Christy's Miisstrkli.?This poppular Kthlopcan ?ora pany gave another of their inimitable performances last evening, at Palmo's. They have gJown into great favor | in this city, as fthey ought, for an evening can be spent I ! most pleasantly, in listening to their sweet music. They I I will remain here through tnc week. Bowery Theatre.?.?The entertainments last nighf at this theatre passed off with great telat. There J was a most crowded house, aa generally Is the case here. 1 Some disappointment was experienced in consequence of j tho substitution of " Far.io" in the room of " The Game- 1 ater which was rendered necessary by the illness of i Mr. J. 1L Scott, who yas in consequeuce unable to take I jus part in that piece : hence the substitution. " Kaiio ? however, was admirably performed, notwithstanding the I abort preparation, and gave complete satisfaction. Mrs G. Jones, as Bianca, was tho gem of the pioce. Her per I lormance was a great achivement She never appeared | to better advantage, and seemed, on this occasion, to soar I into tho highest uossible height of tragic pathos and con I c?PU?n. The other j*rformers, also, sustained her well, with a correctness anJ precision truly astonishing under the circumstances. The national drama of " The Traitor or the Battle of Vorktown," was received with great favor, and, w e arc glad to see, is announced for repetition this evening. " The Gamester," also, will be presented ] this evening, should the health of Mr. Bcott enable him | (as it is hoped) to appoar. Grkewwich Theatre.?Aa uaual, when the inimitable ! Vankce Hill performs, a very good house was in attend unco at the Greenwich last night Throughout, the peri formancos, there prevailed tho moat uubouiidcd applause a flattering evidence to the actors of the success of their eflorts to please. To-night, Mr. Eddy's benefit is announ '"n!. *!>"h 1 ,J'l'ndld bl". = " The Lady of Lyons," l hc Dumb Belle,'- and tho favorito farce of the" " Ho nest Thieves." That fine young actor Mr. Duff, will ap l'c???"ae?nt in tho " Lady of Lyons," and Miss Cla ra Kllis has volunteered to play Pauline, so that with Mr. Eddy aa Claude Melnotte, the'plav is powerfully caat.? We bespeak a crowded house on this occasion ; Mr. Ed dy is a very popular actor among the patrons of the Greenwich, and they will certainly make Ins benefit a | substantial one.

De Kjhas is a delightful musician and well deserves success. The entertainment is highly spoken of in the Boston papers. The singing of Signor l)e Begnis whom it is superfluous to praiie, and the Playing of Madame La/arre, who has no equal on the harp in this country added to tho delightful execution of Senor de Rihas himself on his favorite instrument could not fail to afford ungratified delight to a refined' audience. ?

Judge NeUon suid that he concurred in the opiuion of the District Judge, and the oulv point in the case which induced him to retain it, was us to the juris diction of this Court. The appellant raised a question as to whether the Court had jurisdiction withlu the place where the collision occurred. I'pou inquiry'from ius us saciates, as to tho practice in Circuit Courts when admi ralty cases are tried, it soemed tho practice ol this Court, and of all other United States Circuit Courts, is to entertain cases whenever they occur within tide water, anJ within the jurisdiction of the common iuw Courts. The Court having satisfied itself of tlicte facts, and upon full consideration of the case, is of opinion that tb? steam boat Washington Irving was clritly wroi)g, and the de cree of the Court below must therefore be confirmed.

Judge Kldred charged the jury. He said it was an important and new question?one ? hich had not before been adjudicated by any court in Pennsylvania. He quoted Blackstone and Kussei, on crin>OH,aa containing the definition of bribory, and statod it their definitions were correct, no one could bo convicted of bribery who was not connected with the administration of justice lie, however, read several authorities and adjudicated coses, to show that the law was now extended to persons con nected with offices of public trust, and stated that if these authorities could be relied upon. the.grounJ taken by the counsel for the defendant, that legislative bribery wac not indictable at common law, was much too narrow. He remarked, that the Legislature had also, in some cases, certain judicial powers He, therefore, decided that tho case before the Court was indictable at common law. end that whatever amounted to a public wrong, was the sub ject of indictment. The Judge then reviewed the testi mony, and instructed the jury that if thev believed t'ioilett and Galloway, they must bring the defendant in guilty.
