I hose annual conventions exercise an impor tant influence on the best elements of society, and ?ire productive of an immense amount of good, by conducing to the welfare of the Christian people, throughout the L nited States, and promoting tl?e cause of morals and religion. They are in the nature of a great religious congress, consisting of representatives of the Christian communities, who are deputed by their constituents to attend to their religious interests^ice a year, in this city. They are not regularly elected, like the members of our great jiohtical congress, but are partly sent by the influence of heaven itself. They conduct theijr proceedings according to parliamentary usage? but far superior to Congress or the Legislatures. here is a marked difference between the manner ot conducting business in the religious congress and the political congress, in other respects. There nre seldom such outbreaks in the religious, as there are m the political congress, and more de corum is always visible. The following are sta tistics of the American religious world:? 8li7 thVuII.t,^ Relioiovs Denominations In IK anD BtSE.Tt';a?C0*D,NO T? Rktvu" Roman C?h"'?

These statistics indicate some important facts that are worthy of the most attentive consideration. Since the above returns were tijade out, the liuin ber of communicants has undoubtedly increased* and, at the present time, will amount probably to six millions, which is more than two-thirds pf the adult population of the whole country. These sir millions embrace the moral, intellectual and reli" gious elements of the nation ; and the distinctive features which characterize them should be con sidered the characteristics of the American people. They are emphatically the American people, and should rightfully give tone to our character abroad. But it is not so. They do not give tone to the Ame rican character abroad. The estimate made by foreigners of our character and liabiu, is based on the actions and proceedings of our jKjliticians wV\ at a liberal estimate, do not amount to over five hundred thousand, of all parties and factions. Wp ,lo no' mean voters, but politicians, who most rail/ do not belong to any Christian churches, 1 v > are not included in the nix millions of embers. They arc generally infidels, and unbelievers in any religion. These, by their efforts, gat control of the politics of the country, ai.d ot 'he National and State Legislatures. The scenes ol disorder and disgrace which occur in ?he-* assemblies, and at the jiolls during election ? ines, are characteristic of the politicians, but not, hc have shown, of the moral, intellectual and re igious portion of the Ainericun people, who number *?>me six millions, and who are verily, verily, the salt of the republic. Th~rc is another important fact worth looking at. The annual amount of expenditures by the religious portion of the people, according to an es "mate that we made ^nne tune since, is 614 800, and the amount or wealth invested in' reli-' g'ous edifices and other property, will not fall short of oik hundred milium* of dollar,. The sum thus expended annually, exceeds in amount the whole revenue from the customs and that produced by ?very species of taxation, direct and indirect by the general government. If we should approximate to the additional sum expended in supporting foreign missions, and include it, we should find that the aggregate amount expended for religious purposes in the United States, would be equal to Hnrty-?ix millions of dollars annually?-a sum muc h I,utrer than is required lor maintaining the expenses ol the general government. When we consider that this enormous sum of money is vo untarily tendered?and, unlike the sums collected for government expenses, lhere j, no comjn(Uioil to pay it?every ?.|,e utM>i I* * *40^ *,4 d*>p /eugioiu leetuif p?rv?diu| thi American people, which U not excelled in any part of the world. How important, then, it is thai tiiis great body j of |>eo|>le should be properly represented by the press. Wlnie the great |>olitical congress, repre senting in reality an inconsiderable number of the people, has always receiwl the attention ol the I press throughout the country, the great religious congress, repressing nearly six millions of adults of both ?exe?, has been comparatively neg lected. Indeed, before the era of the Htrald, and the great revolution in newspaper enterprise that 1 it created, these religious anniversaries were en tirely overlooked. This journal was the first to give to the world full and accurate reports of their proceedings and doings. In this respect, we (latter ourselves we have made the all powerful influence of the press instrumental in I promoting the cause of religion. We hope and expect that, 011 the great day of judgment, our efforts this way will, like charity, cover a multi tude of our sins ; and that our small potato errors will not be visible, on account of the dazzling lustre that our exertions to promote religion will throw around us. We shall continue our exertions, and the reli gious world may depend upon finding accurate, impartial, and graphic reports of the coming an niversaries. We shall nought extenuate, nor aught set down in malice. Major Donelson the New American Minis ter ro Prisma.?Major Andrew J. Donelson, the personal friend and near connexion of the late General Jackson, arrived in town the other day, on his way to Berlin, Prussia, where he is appoint ed minister, to take the place of Mr. Wheaton, who returns to the United States. We learn that he will take his departure in the Yorkshire packet ship, one of the best of the New York liners, 011 the 16th inst.; and a more accomplished captain or naval ollicer ho could not go with, than the commandcr of that splendid vessel. On Monday evening, the Corporation passed re solutions complimentary to Major Donaldson, and appointed a committee to wait upon him to testi fy their regard and present these resolutions. All this is very good, but very cheap. Why coidd not the Corporation give this amiable and accomplish ed gentleman a substantial dinner, instead of a plateful of empty resolutions 1 They could s|>end plenty of money in their orgies at the Alms House or Randall's Island, or even amidst the convicts at Blackwell's Island ; but when a decent, gen teel and hospitable thing is wanted, the Corpora tion dismiss it with a dish of resolutions fried for the purpose. Major Donelson is well known throughout the country, lor his near relationship to General Jatckson?for his high personal quali ties, and recently in a more particular way, for his diplomatic abilities displayed in the negotiations which have terminated in the annexation of Texas, lie will be a fit and accomplished representative of the United States at Berlin, to which court he is now 011 his way. Prosjierity attend liiin. Public Morals in Pennsylvania.?The indict ment and conviction of a raw lobby agent, by the name of McCook, from Ohio, for offering a bribe of five hundred dollars to a member of the Penn sylvania Legislature, with a view to induce him to vote in favor of some motion al?out the Lehigh Bank, is one of the most amusing exhibitions in, the matter of public morals, in such a State as Pennsylvania, which wo have seen of late, since the eclipsc of the sun. Who, has forgotten the extraordinary develop ments connected with the re-charter of the old United States Bank by the Legislature of that State 1 Those developments disclosed a mass of bribery and corruption, in the way of bank legis lation, such as would have sunk Sodom and Go morrah fifty times over, and fifty fathoms deep, and might have been equivalent to a million of indictments and convictions. Instead of five hun dred dollars offered to some savagely virtuous member, it is on record that the amount expend ed by that institution for its charter, equalled five millions of dollars, distributed in all sorts ol" ways in H^rrisburgh?and well known at the time, and since, by the name of " lumbering." But this is not all. The bargaining and corruption in rela tion to otlter banking institutions in Pennsylvania, appear like the AUegeny mountains compared to a inolc-hill. We are no friends of these petty, drivelling, conteiup tible shaving banks, located in all pwrts of the coutntry, and intended merely to cheat tlte people. But to look over the bank cor ruptions ?f Pennsylvania, transacted before Hea ven and earitb, with the utmost coolness and com posure, and to see them, at this late day, make such a fuss about a petty rive hundred dollars, and a petty bank at Lehigh, reminds us of one of the most atrocious and degraded women about the " Five Points" bringing an action for libel against some person who doubted the purity of her cha racter. Such sccncs degrade the criminal laws, and co ver with contempt the whole courso of State go vernment. Anti-rkntism.?The proceedings in the Legisla ture on Monday last, were very important. It ap pears that the bill abolishing distress for rent, and ulso the bill providing for the taxation of all re. served rents, passed the House by a large majority. The passage of both tliese bills may be regarded as a triumph of the anti-renters, and exhibits the immense influence that a party, numbering about twenty thousand votes, has on the representative body of the whole State. The bill abolishing <lis. tress for rent, if passed by the Senate, will effoct a reorganization of the relations that hitherto have | existed between landlord and tenant. As a gene h;J thing, it will probably be attended with bene ficial result; but we question whether it will bo advantageous as regards the city of New York. Landlords will be obliged to insist, in every case, almost, to have their rent made payable in ad vance?a measure that will sadJy inconveniencc a number of the poor people. | The 11 evolution or 1776.?We perceive that the few heroes of this great era that are yet spared ' to us, arc fast dwindling away. Mr. Peter V. } Tilyou, who served under General Washington, ' died in this city on Monday last, aged 91, and will lie buried this afternoon. Mr. Tilyou was a native ! of New York. Peace to his manes. FaUB Extra*.?A correspondent coinpluins i Unit some of Uie rascally newsboys have sold old | extras for now ones. How can we help this 1 j Every purchaser must examine his floods before he jmys his money. | Destrittivk rius at Morrisi-own, N. J.?We , are pained to hear that the splendid hotel at Mor rixtown, known as the New Jersey Hotel, and | owned by Mr. Gibbon, was burned to the ground on Monday night. The loss will not fall sliort of 9100,000. This hotel was one of the most splendid establishments in the United States, and its de struction will be regretted by every one who has visited Morriflown since its erection. Mokkktowh, N. J.

Mir Inquests onljr were taken yesterday. 111, U, m, ?? i ?afttjrmt Dm aT tkm he MM|en and Skip at Baaton. The Cnmbria arrived at Boston at about six o'clock on Tuesday morning. For the following account we are indebted to the politeness of Mr. S. B. Riflcy, engineer of the 1'hcnix foundry, New York. It appears the steaiu propeller 11. B. Forbes left Boston on Saaday-evening, about half past 7 o'clock, and arrived at the ship about 8 o'clock on Monday morning, a distance of 90 miles, hav ing had to lay to several hours, on account of the fog. The steam ship was lying embedded in the sand on the beach, up to about her midships?her starboard side dipping about two feet. The steam tug hauled up within about 900 feet, attaching a hawser to her starboard bow, each vessel under a full head of steam, hauling on their anchors.? Fifty tons of coal were thrown overboard, and all the baggage was placed on board the General Lin coln, a small steamboat sent down for that pur pose. This, however, had but little etfect in light ening the vessel, she being so firmly embedded in the sand. The next plan adopted was to discharge | the water from the two forward boilers, which j contained about 100 tons. By this manoeuvre, the vessel's draft was lightened 5 j inches. Tliis, i and the vibration occasioned from the blowing off I of the two boilers, in connection with the power j l'ul steam tug, and likewise the engine of the steam I ship, all of which were in full operation, caused j her to glide out of this uncomfortable situation, | without any damage whatever, and she will sail on her regular day. Just as the ship was ufioat, the steamer May Flower arrived, undercharge of Mr. R. B. Forbes, who kindly volunteered his servi ces, on behalf of the passengers, who all arrived safely, on Monday evening, in Boston. Very Late from Havana. The packet Norma, Cuptain Ellis, arrived last night front Havana, living left that place on the I 28th tdt. By this vessel, we have receive some j intelligence, but not important. banta Anna was still at Havana, and on the 27tli, had another celebrated cock-fight. We have not | heard whether Almonte had left, or not, for France or Mexico. No news from Vera Cruz. Hon. Dudley Seldon, of this city, came as pas senger. Late from Rio Janeiro.?By the ship Brutus, Captain Adams, which arrived yesterday, we have received accounts from Rio to the 19th of March, and to the 9th April, from Pernainbuco. There is no special news. From the River Piute we learn that the seven hundred soldiers that had gone to Montevidio, were ordered to proceed to the Cape of Good Hope, their original destination. At Rio coffee was scarce and in demand, as the weather had been rainy for a long time, so that coffee could not be brought to mnrket. Ame rican produce and cottons were selling at a loss. Left no American men-of-war?those on the sta tion had gone to the river. Tho Brutus had much light weather between Rio and Pernainbuco, and was twenty-one days to latter place. City Intelligence* Warm Wkathp.ii.?Yesterday wai a very warm day. About noon it seemed more like'July than May. Swarm op Doctors.?We understand that there was considerable alarm in the city yesterday, from the names ' of so many physicians being seen and reported upon the hotel books. Some thought we were to De all pnleboto mized or blistered: but our citizens may allay their fears. They are only here for the purpose of attending the Medical Convention?not to injure others, but " pro tect themselves." Militarv.?To-day the City Guard, Capt. McArdle, celebrate their anniversary. They dine at La Grange Place, Bull's Ferry. Dodworth's Band attends them.? They take the steamboat Frank at 3 o'clock, from the foot of Canal street Board of Assistant Alderme*.?There will be a spe cial meeting of this Board to-night The attention of the Board it is expected will be engaged in hearing the re|>ort of the committee to whom was referred the message of the Mayor, in relation to certain complaints preferred against Mr. Oakley, superintendent of repairs. Also, in taking final action upon the subject of the Hudson street or West Side Kailroad. The matter was to have been disposed of on Monday evening, but in consequence of a death occurring in the family of the worthy chairman of the committee to whom the subject was referred, it was unavoidably postponed to this evening. CaicRETTino.?The Mount Vernon Cricket Club in tend meeting on Tuesday next, on their ground on the Third avenue. We expect they will have a match with the Brooklyn Club before long. Dr. Wirt mo .?This gentleman commences a new course of lectures this evening at Clinton HalL Classical Education.?We would call the attention of our readers to the advertisement of the English and Classical Institute, 01 Henry street. Among the refer ences are some of the most respectable names in the city; and families in search of a good school, cannot find a more desirable institution. Coroner's Office, May &?Death from Apoplexy? The Coroner held an inauest yesterday, at No. 8 Hague street, on the body of John Bosford, born in England, 47 years of age, who came to his death by a fit of apo plexy. Death from Intemperance?The Coroner also held an inquest on the body of Ruth Boyd, born in Ireland, 39 years of age, who aied in the City Prison of (felirium tre mens, andjwas taken to the dead house. Park, where an inquest was held. Verdict accordingly. Board of Rapsrvlsots. The Board of Supervisors met last evening in the room of the Board of Alaermen?Recorder Scott in the chair. The minutes of the last meeting were read by Mr. Va lentine, and approved. A bill of $43 for money paid out in the discharge of his official duty by Mr. Patterson, late District Attorney, was presented and referred. A bill of $41 83 was presented from Stephen Eustis for ? month's salanr, as porter at the Court of Sessions, taking charge of the Grand Jury room, lie. The Superv isor of the 13th ward denied the right of the Court of Sessions to appoint such an ottoer, and place the city under expense for it The bill was granted. Aid. Hart presented a bill of $16. certified by his honor the Mayor, for expenses in bringing John A. Canter from Boston to this city. > Ordered ana allowed. A statement of all bills audited and allowed by the Board of Supervisors during the past year, was presented and ordered to be published in the Globe. Aid. Benson moved that it be published in two papers, and in the two that would do it the cheapest This was lost, however. The bill of the Coroner, for the quarter ending March 31st, amounting to $874, was presented and referred to the committee on county officers. The Committoe on Taxes reported that they had re ceived a number of petitions from persons for relief from* taxes. They reported adverse to relieving from tax, Thomas McCarthy, Rodney Looke, Zakariah Teuny, H. F. Quackenbos, John Gray, trustees of the Jane street Methodist Church, Joseph Chamberlain, Leonard <?ar rett, Martin Terhune, Wm. H. Yalm. The petitions of the following persons for relief from taxes, were granted Wm. P. Taylor, Krastus Lyman, S. T. Jones, David Bar nett, Frederick Wallace, George W. Phjfe, Frederick Snow, Jane Templcton, Manhattan Gas Light Company. The Board then adjourned to meet on Monday evening next at 6 o'clock Mystkriotts Disaitf.rance?Probable Murder. ?The Herald, published at Camden, Ounchita county, Ark., gives an account of the sudden and m vsteri ous disappearance of Mr. H. N. Barstow, principal con tractor tor the removal of the "Six-Town Indians" to the Choctaw Nation. It appears that on the 8th inst, Mr. Barstow left Camden, in company with one of his agents, for the residence of a Mr. Magness, a distance of about 30 miles, where he expected to meet the Indians , but finding they had not arrived there, P>e started the next morning, exacting to meet them at another point Be ing further disappointed he rode on to Foster's Bridge, on the Smackover, crossed the creek, and put up with a Maj. Wright, where he remained until the next morning. Lerly on Fride) morniug, the 10th inst.. he started back to the creek, and in the course of twofor thre hours his horse returned to Wright's, and appeared to have lieen in the water, still havhig the bridle and saddle on, aud the boots and spur* of Mr. Barstow tied to the uummel of the saddle. H was the general impression at Camden, as well as of the agents of Mr. Barstow, that he was way laid and murdered for his money. He has left a wife apd Ave children at Cleveland, Ohio. A Mr. Garlinghouse left Camden on the lMh. to take charge of the emigration, and will proceed forthwith to die Indian Nation. Search was being made for the body of Mr. B., and as the cieek was falling, it was thought K would be recovered.?AT. O. PfcsysiK, April 34. Important Aiuuwr.?Officers MrKinstry, Bcebe and Hamilton arrested m Berea, on Monday night, the notorious Capt James W. Pollock, well known from the Lake* to the Gulf. He wa* arrested last fall in Wheel ing, and the plates of the counterfeits on the Planters' Bank of Tennessee obtained, but Pollock managed to get dlachaned. Since then he has beeu dodging ofloeas, untfl the vigilant McKiustry and his associates secared him. On Wadneeday morning he was delivered over to ottcer Thos. r, Shallcross, of wheeling, ou a requisition for Pollock from the Governor of Alabama, who imme diately started South with the prisoner. Pollock Is clierg ed with forgery and passing counterfeit money, and un less his reputation belies him, his extensive and admit currency tinkering entitles him to at least a cashiership under the equally notorious Jim Brown. Pollock's master operation was the procuring in New York w genuine $30 plates, for the Planters' Bank of Alabaaaa, at Wetumpka, an exact counterpart of the platea of the Planters' Bank of Tennessee, except the wonts " Alabama" and " Wetnmp ka," tar which tho.words 'Tennessee" and "Nashville" were readily substituted. Thus prepared, a large amount of (he counterfeit Tennessee bills were put Tn cireuU letioa, and so genuine was their appearance, that the Sank did not detect the imposition, until a considerable sum was taken at the couuter. 0?cer Shallctoss has haeu on the trail of Pollock s?or lines last fall, and U is to l? ?iU now etMsjuiltaKrtt - ImiUmmmti ? -?- ? - I Pa?k.?Mr*. Mowatt ippurad last evening In the character of Mariana, in Knowlea' beaatifal play of " The Wife," supported by Mr. Vandenhoff u St Pierre, and Mr. Dyott aa Leonardo. The play breathe* a fire tone j of lefty sentiment throughout It ia one of the moot tieaatiful productions of one who is now allowed to be 1 the greatest dramatist that hoi appeared (hire the day* of , ShaK?|>eare. The part of Mariana in comparatively quiet, : and although capable of being lighted up by thoae deli | rate touches of graceful acting hi which Mrs. Mowatt excels, yet it is not such as to tax ; her powers to anv thing near their extent, and consequently her Marians did not come quite up to her impersonation of Margaret of the previous evening. { But she made several toe points tell with greet effect. | Her acting in the second scene of the fourth act. where i she listen* to the proposal of Ferrardo, was in the highest degree dramatic. There was no vuliiar grimace, no dumb show, to let the audience see, as it were, how she was gulling the fellow?such as would have marred the scene in tne hands of a less skilful actress. Nobody could know, from her manner, that she was not sincere ; in her acceptance of his offer to procure her the means | of escape. Tills is the very best point in the entire play, and it was faultlessly rendered by Mr*. Mowatt. There is one fault that we notice in her delivery, which mar* the beauty of some fine passage*?that Is, in order to give roundness and volume to her enunciation, she dwells too long on the vowel sounds, which makes her appear, when delivering passages of high passion, as it she mouthed her words ; whereas, if she adhered to a natural Iironunciation. her articulation is so distinct that her de Ivery would be far more effective and satisfactory. This fault can be easily corrected. Mr. VandtnhofPs St Pierre was such as would have pleased Sheridan Knowles him self. The stratagem by which he obtained Ferrardo's signature to the confession told admirably, and hi* acting was effective and graceful throughout Mr. Dyott's Leo

nardo was such as could scarcely t>e excelled. At the close of the play, Mrs. Mowatt and Mr. Vandenhoff were called out and bowed their acknowledgments. To-night " Love's Sacrifice" will be repeated. Bowery Theatre.?The " Gamester," by the famous author of Zelucco, was performed last night in admirable style. Mr. 8cott, though still evidently in feeble health, enacted the part of Stukely in his usual fine and effective style. Mrs. Phillips and Mrs. Jones were excellent in their parts. The " Traitor, or the Battle of Yorktown," followed, und filled with delight the crowded audieucc. Mrs. Sergeant sang a beautiful comic song most charm ingly, and as to Hadaway, his power is almost absolute over the house ; it is hardly possible to see him without being merry?his acting is so natural and easy, and yet most masterly. He is an admirable comedian, a genuine son of Momus. To-night " Macbeth," with a powerful cast of character, will be brought forward ; after which, " The Demon Statue," a most attractive bill, quod riolt. Greenwich Theatre.?Last night waa Mr. Eddy's benefit, and his numerous admirers evinced their appro* ciation of his dramatic talent, by giving him a fine house' The play was the " Lady of Lyons," and the acting was quite spirited, having evidently been studied with much care and judgment. Mr. Eddy personated Claude Mel notte, and that too in a highly creditable manner. Some of the passages in the play were delivered in the best style of elocution, and with more earnestness and feeling { than is generally displayed. Mis* Clara Ellis played Pauline very well, and though not altogether free from faults, her performance was worthy of much praise. In the engagement of Mr. Duff we think the Greenwich has made an acquition. He i? clearly- familiar with all the minutia of the stage, has a good figure, a deep toned mu sical voice, and makes a very prepossessing appcarance. His Beauseant is a highly finished and most creditable piece of acting, and gives token of his capability to soar \ to higher flights in the profession. A capital bill is pre sented for to-night Yankee Hill is to appear in two of ! his comic more f aux, via " Casper Hauser," and " Seth - Slope," and the performances are to conclude with " Love and Livery." Such attractions will be likely to draw a full house. Noronha's Concert.?A not very numerous, but highly select and fashionable audiencc, assembled last evening at the Apollo. Previous to the beginning of the j concert, a gentleman ascended the platform, and informed | the audicnce that the orchestra refused to perform their part of the entertainment, in consequence of the proba ble scarcity of funds. Since the orchestra would not "play, without pay," Madame Otto came to a similar de termination, and all the performer* who had been an nounced, with the exception of the concert giver him self, withdrew. In this emergency, Madame de Noronha, the veritable "Dolores," came forward to the rescue of her husband, and perhaps, for the first time in her life, seating herself quietlykto the piano-forte, at a public con cert, "Dy and with the advice and consent oT the audi tory/' accompanied him in all his pieces. He played all that had been announced for himself, and a few extra pieces, to make up. The lady acquitted herself remark ably well of her unexpected task, and we really never saw so small an audience so loud and enthusiastic in their ' applause, and so little wearied by the monotony of a sin- I gle person's performance. Among the pieces played by I Seiinor Noronha, we particularly admired the style of j one, entitlod "Lcs Dernier* nioments du Tapo," which, with a peculiarity of construction, is remarkably chaste 1 and neat in its conception, and was particularly well exe- j cutcd. We may hereafter allude to the propriety of the , withdrawal of the orchestra and vocalist, after the as semblage of an audience. Mr. E. L. Walrer's first Concert Jin this city, took place, also, last evening,'at the Tabernacle. His audience contained a goodly number of artists and amateurs, at tracted, no doubt, by the exhibition of the new attach ment to the pianoforte, the invention of the concert giver. This harmonic attachment, is indeed a valuable addition, or rather improvement/upon the instrument, de veloping powers wluch have hitherto laid dormant, al though well known to exist This eoncert opened with a favorite quintette of Hrnnmell's, admirably executed by Messrs. Loder, Bristow, Derwort, Mungriff and Pirs son. Miss Northall sang two songs, one of Felicien Da vid, one from the opera of " Mantana," by Wallace, a beautiful composition, and a cavatina from Donizetti's " Farisina." She sung rather better than usual, especial ly in the second song. In the cavatina, there was room for improvement Messrs. Davis and Kyle each played a flute solo, the one on the Boehm, and tne other on the German flute, and both played excellently well. But the honors of the evening were due in an eminent degree, to Mr. Walker, for his really beautiful performance on his improved instrument To a remarkable delicacy of touch, he unites a thorough knowledge of his instrument and by the application of his " harmonic pedal," he really producesmoit "fairy-like music." We heartily wish, however, that public performers would not consider it necessary' to wind up each and every concert with the air of " Yankee Doodle," hackled to pieces and tortured into all varieties of shapes. For several years past, we have scarcely visited a concert that we did net almost invariably find the same rule adopted, and Senhor Noron ha, last evening, as well as Mr. Walker, had to follow in | the track. We admire our national air as much as any one. but can see no earthly necessity for torturing It into all imaginable shapes, for the purpose of ending concert* with it We are certainly unpatriotic enough to say, that we would rather on leaving the house, have had the beautiful variations on Weber's " Mermaid's Song," (the gem of the evening, by the way,) ringing in oar ear, than " Yankee Doodle, in " mince-meat harmonics." " Father Heinrich's" Concert take* place this eve ning at the Tabernacle, and a very thronged house may reasonably be expected. Even those who are not lovers of music Mould go, if only to see the enthusiastic and veteran artist wielding the fteten. It certainly is a sight worth seeing. While speaking of concerts, we just remember that Madame Pico'* first concert since lier return among us, is announced for Tuesday next, 13th inst Pico la Diet will not lack friends on the occasion. Christy's Minstrels.?This fine Ethiopean company, still continues to draw crowds to Palmo's. Their music is very chaste and sweet, and a very pleasant evening may be spent in listening to them. Mr. De Meyer's fourth and last concert at New Orleans, was to come off on the 37th tilt On the 39th, he was to give another in Mobile.

Liver Complaint le generally accompanied with pain in the right side, extending to the top of the shoul der; variable appetite?occaaionally a disordered stomach ; vellow tinge of the skin and eyes, and often a swelling over the region of the liver, together with many other symptoms of a loaded and comipt state of the blood. Wright's Indian Vegetable Pills will be found one of the very best medicines in the world for the cure of all disease* of the liver : because they expel from the body those morbid humors which, when deposited upon this important organ, are the cause of every variety of liver complaint. From three to six of the above named Indian Vegetable Pills, taken every night on going to bed, will, in a short time,give such manifest relief that no argument or persuasion will be necessary to induce a perseverance in their use until the liver is restored to a healthy action, and pain or distress of every kind is dri ven from the body, Wright's Indian Vegetable Pills also aid and improve di gestiou, and purify the blood ; and, therefore, not only re move every vestige of liver complaint, but, at the same time, give new life and vigor to the whole frame. Caution.?It should be remembered that Mr. Samuel Reed, of Baltimore ; Mr. John Dixon, of East on, Pa., and Messrs Browning Brothers, of Philadelphia, are not agents of ours, and aa they purchase no Wrighrs Indian Vegetable Pills at our office, we cannot guaranty as genuine any medicine they mav have for salt.
