NEW YORK HERALD. New l'ork, Saturday, Nay M, 1M& The Weekly Herald. The Weem.y Heiuu.d to bo issued this morn ing, is embellished with two beautiful engrav ings?one, "May Day in New York the other a "View of the Fortress of Snn Juan de Ulloa at Vera Cruz." It also contains the latest news from Mexico, Texas, and the Army of Occu pation ; the foreign news by the steamship Cam bria, at Boston; the proceedings of the Medi cal Convention ; the Trial of ex-Gov. Thomas for Libel on Col. Benton ; interesting and impor tant foreign and domestic correspondence; de bates in Congress, fcc. 4tc. It will be ready for delivery at the desk, at 8 o'clock. Price 64 cents. Affix Ira on the Rio (?rnntlr. Public opinion in this region appears to l>o some what at fault in relation to the position ol athiirs on the Rio Grande frontier. Some suppose that the skirmishing and bloodshed which have already taken place between the Americans anil Mexicans, amount to nothing-?do not indicate any proba. bility of a general action?and will probably end in aegars for two, and peace for all. Others draw a different inference, under the lielicf that the Mexicans are only waiting until the sickly season shall set in, when they mean to fall upon the Americans, and defeat them if possible. Our relations with Mexico, according to the lat cst intelligence, arc certainly anomalous. If we are not at war, what are we at I The American navy is before Vera Cruz, and the American force r> blockading the |x?rt of Matamoras ! American blood has been shed by the Mexicans ! and pom pous proclamations are put forth by their General! nil indicating the most rancorous spirit of hostility. It is conjectured, also, with some pleasure, that before this time the Mexicans would have at tempted to dislodge the Americans but for a new revolution which had broken out in the Southern departments of Mexico, in favor of Santa Anna, conducted by Alvarez. Taking all the facts and circumstances now known tons, it is very evident that unless sonic decisive lino of conduct be pursued by our govern in their warlike demonstrations, matters ?e protracted until the season and the fever | -ially aid the Mexicans in disgracing J .. V u arms. No one doubts the courage j of the American troops?their discipline, their ea- j pai .:i''ir ol fleers, or their ability to thrash j readily twice the number of muskets which they j reckon ; but there must be unity and spirit in the camp. There must be energy and capacity in the government, and in the war department. Thus far, the government, in the management o' Mexican affairs, lias exhibited a mixture of ability and incapacity. Their designs appear to have been v\'ell taken; but some of the details have been unfortunate, By what influence in the war de partment has it happened that the services of that intrepid and gallant soldier, Colonel Worth, have been taken away! It is time for the President and cabinet to comc forth from their obscurity, and to take an open, bold and decisive position on the Mexican ulfnirs, and bring our relations with that republic, one way or the other, to a crisis ipmlily. Tiie Militia Laws.?The militia system of this State, under its present organization, has been the jiource of trouble, vexation and inconvenience, lor a number of years, to the people, without, in return, yielding a single advantage worthy of no tice. Under its operation our citizens have been taken from their business, ami been forced to make laughing stocks of themselves, a certain number of days in every year, to the iuflnite amusement of the ragged urchins about town, who, 011 " soldiering days," turn out in their full strength to bear witness to the short-sightedness and imbecility that must have animated the origi nators of this absurd law. The disapprobation of this law has been mark ed and decisive. It was, indeed, partially brought forward as a rallying cry at the last election ; and the candidates that were then electcd, went into office partially pledged to reform this nuisance. How have they succeded in satisfying the jieoplcl Not at all. They have touched the subject a little, but that is all. They have skotched the snake, but not killed it. They have passed a law abolishing im prisonment for militia fines, but that is all. 11 they had but passed a law abolishing all militia fines, the root of the evil would be reached, our citi zens would be saved a great amount ol mortifica tion and trouble, and the cligtut of regiQiental coxcombs, who annually fleece the jieople out of sums of money, under court martial warrants, would be obliged to cat their oyster suppers and smoke their segars at their own expense. Now that the people have failed in procuring 1 any remedy for this abuse, from the Legislature, i their next effort nuTst be directed to the State Con- j vention. We hope the delegates who will meet 1 next month, will take this odious law into consi deration, and devise meant for ridding us of it speedily. Punishment of Bribery in Pennsylvania.? McCook has been fined $600, in Pennsylvania, for attempting to buy a legislator there with $500. The judge, in passing sentence, said he was sorry he could not catch other offenders. If the judge would look into the annals of the United States Bank, he would find them there as thick as strings of onions, by the dozen, two in a bunch. SrRiNo Pi-ruing.?Mr. Ritchie, of the Wash ington Union, is purging the democracy, lie has denounced the Charleston Mtrcury, and all that portion of the Southern democracy of which it is the organ, as being jio longer identified with the democratic party,?by which he means the Polk section ol" the same. Thus, the war of the sections has begun ; but where will it end 1 Fot'RtERlSM on the Wane.?The Skaneateles community has changed hands, having been pur fins- I by a person who has assumed its debts? i ? Hi-.*' too, wc do not know. It is going down like other similar communities which ? i up the ghost in the West. It is only tuiui.isluPg that these ridiculous attempts have been able to continue so long. So Soon 1?The two democratic organs here arc already at issue upon Mr. Secretary Ban croft's Reixirt: the Nnrt praising it to the skies, and the Giobt denouncing it for a disgraceful pro duction. Which is the real organ of tlie govern ment now 1 Thk STEA>tMirr Cambria.?The Yarmouth tit giiter, a verv respectable paper, published near the scene of the late disaster to tho l fimbria, says the Botton *Mmttiirr, make* the following remark! with regard to it : From the best accounts we are able to ob tain from people at Wellfleet, and the report* of the fish ermen who were off the ( upe on Sutunla). and the j?aa M-ngers, we have no hesitation in >aying that the running a*hore of the Csmbria was one ol those unavoidable ac cidenta against which human foresight and nautical skill could not provide. The cause of the disaster -w as a south current, which had been setting several days, at three miles an hour The fishermen make this report, and it is no doubt the fact, as such current* frequently exist alter easterly w inds. The Cambria was in this current five or six hours, which accounts for her being so far oil her course. This is not the first case of the kind that has oc curred. Vessels coming from the eastward, the maters not knowing that such a current ever existed, ha*e been swept still farther off their course. The ilenseness of tha fog on Haturday night, lire vented seeing the shore. She came on shore opj>osite the bounds betw een Truro itnd WellHeet. and we believe that there is not another point on our coast where a vessel could approach from the eastward without the soundings would indicate that aha was approaching the shore.

A full report of this interesting assembly will be given in the evening edition. We shall continue our labors through the ensu ing week, and give full and correct reports of the doing's of all of thc?c assemblies. For this pur pose we have engaged and mean to employ a dozen or more reporters, in different capacities, in order to give the public the best reports that can be procured. We shall publish each day during the coming week, n Supjiletnent to the Herald, for the purpose t>f embracing these reports. This Supplement will be furnished to our regular city and country subscribers and agents grain. The news carriers of this city are included in this ar rangement. To news-boys, and all others than subscribers, this Supplement will be furnished at the usual price of on Extra Herald. From this arrangement will be seen the ad vantage the regular subscribers to the Herahl have; for by this arrangement they secure the Supple ment, containing the rejwrts of these assemblies, without any additional expense ; while mere tran sient readers will pay for it the same as they would for an extra. Theatrical aud Musical. Tahk.?A crowded and fashionable audience graced the benefit of .Mrs. Mowatt, lact evening. The play of "The Hunchback" w as produced on the occasion, Mr*. Mowatt i sustaining the part of Julia, and Mr. Vandenhofl' that of Master Walter. The ]>art of Julia is one of great diffi culty, and requiring a great deal of care and study, before perfection can be attained in it That Mrs. Mowatt was perfect in it would be saying too much. But we can | safely say that she was fully equal to the part?that is, whatever faults were apparent, were such us arose from j want of practice, and such as she can easily correct. Her | acting in the 3d scene of the 4th act, was natural and , truthful?it was, indeed, unsurpassable. But her "do it," in the 3d scene of the ftth act, was not as effective as we could have wished ; and for this reason?that her voice was not well regulated in delivering the pre ceding sentence. If we might be allowed to make the sug gestion, w e w ould advise that she take pains to regulate the inflections of her voice by the rise and fall of the sen tence. We know that it seems easy in the closet ; but a young artist finds it extremely difficult on the stage.? i Mrs. Mowatt's voice is sweet and beautifully modulated; I and if she give it natural play, it will be more effective than if she were to school it after the most approved fashion of the phonologists. Of Mr. VandenhofTs Master Walter, wo scarcely know how to speak. There w ere some excellent points in it, and v et it did not, on the whole, please us. The fact is, Mr. VandeuhoA' has a stereotyped passion which he uses in all characters, and which makes his acting appear, in some parts, very in congruous. He does not seem to have a facility in un bending himself to suit his characters. His elocution is excellent ; but it is too artificial, and he wants that pliancy which is particularly necessary in such parts as that of Master Walter. But we would be doing him injustice to omit saying that, notwitstand ing its many defects, it was such a representation as very few could have given. He should throw off'that lachry mose intonation, which is, to be sure, very proper in its place, but is altogether out of place in such passages as that in which lie calls Julia's attention to the "massy Pillars" of the banquctting room. Mr. Bland's Sir Thomas ! i litlord, was a very creditable performance, as far as sjieech-making went, but was too icy and passionless for so anient a wooer. Why was not Dyott cast for this | part .' We would not be understood as disparaging Mr. ! Bland's acting, but really Mr. Dyott is more fit to sup- j port the character. Barrett's Modus was excellent; Mrs. i Abbott's Helen unexceptionable; and Fisher's Fathom the ! best we have ever seen. At tho close of the play Mrs. j Mowatt and Mr. Vandenhofl' were called out to re ceive the applause of the audience; and at the close of the afterpiece, in which Mrs. Mowatt apiieared j as Charles 11, in " Faint Heart Never Won Fair Lady," she was called before tho curtain a second time, and hav- I ing been led on by Mr. Barry, was greeted with tumul- I tuous applause, and a shower of bouquets. After she had retired, Mr. Barry came out, and in Mrs. Mowatt's I name, thanked the audience for tho very flattering roco|> tion she had met with, and announced for this evening the repetition of last evening's bill. Bowery Theatric.?The entertainments, last evening, at this establishment, were for the benefit of Mr. Daven port, one of the most popular and deserving actor* upon the boards of the Bowery. The evening commenced with Bulwer's celebrated play of "The Lady of Lyons," with Mr. Davenport, as Claude, and Mrs. G. Jones as rauline. Mr. Davenport, as Claude, was superior to any thing we had before seen him in. His elocution was good, as well as his gesticulation. If he could overcome a little super flous stiffness, it would much improve him. But Mr. Da venport is a young actor, and bids fair to become eminent in his profession. Mis. Jones, as Pauline, acquitted her self in her usual chaste and energetic mauner. The other pieces were tho "Adopted Child,'' and tho celebrated nautical drama of "The Star Spangled Banner," in which Mr. Davenport performed the character of Go-ahead Tom. Thcro was a crowded house. This evening, "Wallace," "The Brigand Monk," and "The Star Spangled Banner," i will be played. Greenwich Theatre.?Mr. Plumer took quite a aul> stantial benefit at this theatre last night, there being a very good house, notwithstanding the threatening aspec* of the weather. The " Alpine Maid" wis admirably per formed and highly applauded. Mr. Chapman and Miss Drake were decidedly excellent in their respective parts, and well sustained their high reputation. The engage ment of Yankee Hill closes to-nignt, when he will appear i In two of his most popular characters, Jonathan Doubi ! kins and Nathan Tucker. The "8avage and the Maiden" I is also to be performed, forming, altogether a glorious ! entertainment. Great preparations have beeu made by the management for the production of the new drama of "Richmond Hill," in a style of great splendor, on Monday evening. The complimentary bencnt to Mr. Myers has been got up by some of tho first men in the city, and will probably draw one of the most elegant and fashionable houses that has ever occupied any theatre in New York. | Christy's Mixstels.?Another crowded house was at traded to Palmo's, last evening, by the Ethiopian min* j strels. This fine company have never been in New York before, and have drawn crowded houses notwithstanding ' the bad weather with which they have had to contend. They were the first regularly organized Ethiopian com pany ; and Mr. E. P. Christy is the author of many of the popular Ethiopian melodies. This is their last evening here, and is set apart for the benefit of G. N. Christy-, the inimitable bone player, on which occasion he will give the bones the extra touches. He has become a prodigious favorite with the New Yorkers, who will give him a bumper to-night Mr. Philif Ernst.?This gentleman, who was tho first to introduce the Bcchm flute into this country, and who has long enjoyed the esteem and patronge of some of our most resectable citizens, by reason of his high musical attainments, is about to give a concern on Thurs day evening next, at the Anollo Saloon. He will be as sisted on the occasion by Mr. Hermann Wollenhaiipt, of the Musical Academy of Leipsic, whose execution on the piano is very highly spoken of. Sec advertisement in ! another column. Philharmonic.?'The whole musical world seems to be 1 in a state of excitement and expectation, about the forth coming " Monster Concert," in aid of the funds forthc erection of a Philharmonic Hall. This concert is to take place on the 30th instant; and on this occasion more musi cal talent will be collected together in this metropolis, than has probably ever appeared together in this country. Madame Pico w ill volunteer her services ; so will fSe Meyer, if he returns by that time ; so will Mr. Burke, and'so will all the musical talent in this city. We hear, moreover, that a number of artists from the neighboring cities, purpose coming here to lend their assistance on this great occasion. There will h? altogether from four to five hundred vocal and instrum< atal performers. An act of incorporation of the Philharmonic Society has been before the Legislature at Albany for some time, but has as yet passed only two readings. We do not see what can possibly delay its final passage. There never was a more harmless act brought before that august body, and nothing but good to the cause of art can possibly be the result of its passage. Then why this unnecessary delay ? Let it be passed at once, so the funds arising'from the above great concert, may immediately be applied to the purchase of a suitable site for the building. Without in corporation, the society cannot of c6urse proceed iu the matter. Mr. Burke is to give a concert in Syracuse on Monday the 11th inst. Mr. Brougham is giving very succcssful entertainments at Worcester, Mass. Maeder's grand concert is announced in Boston forthc 13th inst Sixteen players are to perform oil eight piano fortes, the effect of which must l>e astonishing. Added to this, he states that eminent talent from New Vork will ap|>ear. Mr. Dempster w as to give his last concert in St. Louis on the .KHh ult. Mr. Murdoch was to take his benefit in Philadelphia last night. The performances w ere to be " Komco aud Juliet,' and selections from the " School for Scandal." Tr*riKT0* nx the Ohio.?This eminent vocalist seems to l>e quite successful in the West. Prentice, of the fauitvilU Journal, a good judge, gives the following account of his progress : ?Mr. Tcnipletoii very complete ly vindicated his title last night, to the reputation of being one of the first Itnoir, vocalists, in a series of musical ems showing the peculiarities of English. Irish and cotch melodies. He seemed to l>e native to each pecu liai melody, and was master of every movement of mu sic, passing from the adagio, through the andante to presto time, with a natural grace aud ease that bcs|>oko him a master of his art, rarely ever seen in Louisville l*fore. His bravura style in the song of" Old Towler," was a masterpiece of execution. The expressiveness of Mi. Tvniplcton we have never heard surpassed, and the various anecdotes with which he enlivened the didactic portion ol his entertainment, w ere told with a power of mlmicrj * richness of brogue, a naturalness and spirit, inat would hay e been a fine entertainment of themselves, e rordially thank Mr. Templeton for one of the most entertaining evening, we ever spent in the Apollo WHU r?^r Templcton was greeted with a large and anM i?.ihu.^f|* ua,e,,ce' who testified their warm ? I ? *>> <'>e most rapturous ap fnCor?': display of musk-ii .!? mm i f"vr mo,io" feet nnd hands that we ncyer saw mo\ ed irom quietude before. Dc Meter ix New Or,.,,,, We have seen letters from New Orleans, w ritten by private pen?., giving a very droll and amusing account of tf,e extraord imrv reception und popularity which has attended the'Tot ste|?> of De Mej er, at New Orleans ,.n,l Mobile It seems the great pianist has been running backwards and tor wards between Mobile and New Orleans, giving concerts in each of these to U>e number ol eight or tea or E bom?all crowded?all enthusiastic?as muck so as they were in thit city. On one occasion, the enthusiasm pro duced by his unique performance, wai 10 very over* whelming that it brought down bouquets upon at the close of one piece, to the number of fifteen or twenty. Artists, even, hare set their genius to work, and the most extraordinary and original caricatures have been issued there by a Frenchman, which have set the whole city in j fits of laughter. One of these we hare seen, which Is a , great curiosity. It is a most singularly exact represen tation of De Meyer's expression and face. The hair, ac cording to his usual style, is made to flow loosely back at cither side of the head. An eye-glass is fixed closely in the socket of the right eye, which peer* at the looker on. A cigar, a foot long, ignited, grace* the left corner of the mouth with a sort of " easy elegance." under which is a a well-brushed imptrialc. The whiskers profusely and richly ornament the chin. He is represented in the atti tude of a countrr pedlar, taking two of" Erard's" pianos, strapped like peddle-boxes at either side, under the arms. I On the right peddle-box is perched a " real lire Yankee," gaping in wonderment at some composition of De Meyer's, which he hold* in his hand. In the left hand, he holds a well filled bag, which, if opened, would doubtless be found to contain a pretty fair amount of those raluable nestlings called " American eagles." A plaid trowsers gives a fine finish to the (out enttmble, while the long stride ami complacent looks of the great musical prodigy ?would seem to indicate that De Meyer is well satisfied with the sale of those goods which he carries in his ped dle boxes, on Jiis " March Marocaine," from the city of New Orleans, which appears in the distance. The music and time to which he marches is set, and also has a place in the pictur^ The caricature is evidently designed to compliment, and reflects much credit on the artist. The conception is excellent, and the expression highly credit able. The artist would doubtless find it a Rood specula tion to forward some hundreds of copies to this city, where De Meyer has also thousands of admirers of liis j extraordinary musical abilities and genius. Bands' (c Lent's America* Ciacrs?Bonds' St Lent's fine American Circus, with their splendid stud of horses, athletic, graceful, and skilful riders, gorgeous dresses and trappings, and their beautiful and wonderful little , ponies, have been performing, for a week past, in Troy, 1 N. V. Here they met with immense success, and were ; obliged, at times, to refuse two or three thousand people ? admission. On May Hth, they will be at Waterford ; on the 9th, 11th and 13th, at Aloany ; on the 13th, at Sche nectady ; on the 14th, at Amsterdam ; on the 15th, at .lot?>ustown ; and on the 16th, at Fonda. The people of these>towns have a rich treat in store for them. Rink's Or<;an School.?The publication of this great wort; Vy Messrs. Firth, Hall St Pond, has reached its secoiid'uumber. We cannot pass a work of such impor tance to'the musical world, and one so much needed, without a. brief notice. No good or thorough instruction | book for tlie organ, has erer, before this, been published in I this country, and this, being the very best extant, should be immediacy obtained by every organist and student of the instrument throughout the country. City Intelligence. Launch ok a Nkw HiusinoiT.?The new and splendid .steamboat Atlantic, ii to be launched at eight o'clock this morning', from Bishop & Simonson's ihip yard, at the foot ol Sixth street, Kast River. She ii intended to ply be tween this city and Norwich, in connection with the Nor wich and Worcester line. We shall give a full descrip tion of the ceremony in to-morrow'? paper. Board or Assistant Aldermen.?A special meeting of this Board was called by the President last eveniug, w'th a view of completing some unfinished business, which has been bcfoiy them for some time past, including the Hudson Street Railroad, and the charges preferred against Mr. Oakley. Superintendent of Repairs); but, not withstanding the members of the Board mustered strong at the supper room, they (ailed to take their seats for the transaction of business. This is the second farce of the kind that has been euacteiLin the course of the last week. Amongst those members, who were present, (as on other occasions.) may be mentioned, Messrs l arsons, Candee, Gray, Roberts and Oliver. The President, in consequence ol a quorum not being present, announced that the Board would stand adjourned until Monday evening next. .1 ^ University?The annual oration before the Philomathean and;Ijticleian Societies of the New >ork University, will bo delivered by the Rev. Doctor Nun*) . ofElizabethtown ' and the poem by Mr. Lord of Princeton, N.J. The exercises will take place in Doc tor Potts church, on Tuesday' evening, June 30th?tho evening preceding the annual commencement day.? Doctor Murray has acquired celebrity as a preacher in the Presbyterian church ; and Mr? Lord is known as the author of a book of poems publ^bcd about a year ago. Pay,Broadway.?You may not believe it, reader, but it is a fact, that two patches of Broadway?one oppo site the Park, and the other just above Reade street?are being paved. What is going to happen ? IV!ALCo?'?A" 'nf,,r'at?d cow got into Union square, yesterday forenoon, and made some bad work among the trees and grass. She was brought down, finally, by two large dogs who were set upon her, and she was, we be lieve, killed. How does it happen that so many of these animals get loose in the street f The Schooner Pataxunt.?The trial of N. T. Davis "'J "Shaw, the captain and mate of the Patuxent, charg ed with a violation of the laws for the suppression of the slave trade, is fixed for this morning. Charge of Stabbin?.?Samuel Cook, alias David Hur loy, the man charged with stabbing Jacob Lewis, on board the sloop Oneida, was yesterday committed by Commis sioner Morton, after a full investigation of all the facts and circunrstanccs of the case, to take hi* trial. Brutal Assault.?We understand that a respectable geutiemau, who has been encaged for some time past iu the laudable fattempt of ridding the neighborhood of Duanc and Kim streets of several disorderly houses, was assaulted in the street, last evening, by some of the hangers-on of an establishment which he had succeeded in breaking up, and cruollv beaten. The rascals escaped but we hope they will be discovered, and our citizens nro^ tected in the discharge of their duty. Coroner's Office, May 8.?found Drowned.?The Coroner was called to hold an inquest at the dead house in the Park, on the body of an unknown man, who was found yesterday morning in the Kast river, foot of Ele venth* st., supposed to nave been in the water some time. The body lays at the dead house for recognition. An in quest will be held this forenoon. Police Intelligence. Touched of a Watch.?A young man from the country arrived in town yesterdiy, to see the .Tghts by the name of Peter hawluns, and on strolling up Broad wav last evening, was met by a young French lady, call ed Louisa Roach, when, after some little small talk to, gether, he was induced to accompany her to a " den." or touch crib," as they are called, located at No. 64 Antho ny street, wherein he was robbed of his gold lepine watch, worth $40.

For i-lainUI, Messrs. Staples ami Mju.'. Hew Publications. Thc Wutiik Review, far April, 184??Hazewell? Columbus, Ohio. Thii it the flrat number of the first quarterly review ever published in the Weit The date of itt commencement may be looked upon ai forming an I epoch in the literary- hiatory of that great country. If properly conducted, the publication cannot fail to exei* ' cite a moat important influence on the miada of the

I Western people. It may be looked upon aa the I pioneer of thought in the West; and we ahould not be turprited if it thould work at greet a revolution in the habitt of thinking of the people, at liat been effected by the Edinburgh Renew, in [ Great Britain. Its tone, although essentially democratic, it elevated, and the papert that appear in the pretent number are contributed by tome of the ablest jK?nt in the country. The first, which is a review of Mr. Secretary Walker's annual report, advocates strongly the doctrine of free trade. The following remark polntt out a most i important distinction, and one which is very often over | looked, namely, the difference between social and politi i cal slavery :?" There is more political liberty in Eng land than is known on any part of the continent; but | that social slavery which is the bane of modern States is freater in Kngland than it it in the neighboring nations." he writer goes into a searching examination of the pro tective system, and depicts in glowing termt the blets j ingt resulting from universal free trade. Thc next paper | is a condemnatory review of ('apt. Siborus's " History of | the War in Kranre and lielgium," which goes at length into the hittory of the campaign at Water loo. A review follows, going over the whole history of the Rhode Island troubles. Another treats of Konblaugue's "Kngland under Seven Adminis trations." A*most scathing review of native American ism follows. It is the most powerful and comprehensive argument against the dogmas of that faction that we have yet seen. It shows conclusively, that the native Amencans have been actuated by a spirit of anti-popish persecution, and convicts them of folly and absurdity dangerous to the very existence of the commonwealth. Thc other papert are on the "Naval Power of the Unit ed States," "The Oregon Question," " The Currency," a review of Wiebuhr'x and Arnold't, Histories of Rome, and an address delivered at the consecration of Spring Grove Cemetery, by Judge McLean. Should future numbers realize the promise that the present one gives, the tVeatern Review is destined to take the lead of ail si milar publioations in the United States.

The dissentient* are Meiiri. Johnson and Lester. Several unimportant amendments, not at feeling the general plan, have been made by the Senate^ These amend menu, it is believed, will not delay the speedy concurrence of the House. It seems to be certain that the bill will become a law. The bills called "anti-rent bills," which have passed the House, were not had in consideration in the Senate. The bill in relation to the New York and Erie railroad, pasaed on a vote of 33 ayes to 4 nays. This evening, the Senate has been talking about a cer tain bill, to which I have before alluded, to prevent fires on the line of the Long Island railroad. The company are to be made to plough up and remove all the combustible materials, on either side of the road, for a distance of some SO miles. The Senate recommitted the bill to the committee, with instructions. In the House proceedings, to-day, we have to record a fact which will make the "Brigadier" (Morris) wear crape on his epaulettes for the period of three lunar months. It will occasion philosophers, editors, poets and lawyers, the most extravagant joy. It is nothing less than the passage through the House of the Senate bill to abolish imprison ment for all tines imposed for the non-periormance of militia duty ! The bill passed by a vote of 80 yeas to IS nays. The Governor will sign it without compunction. A bill to authorise the State to assume jurisdiction over a canal slip and basin, at Dansville, passed the Senate this morning. It was sent down to the House for con currence. This evening the House passed the bill, ex clusive of one section, and a committee of conference was named to secure a joint concurrencc of the Houses. At? P.M., the House passed Gen. Kullerton's militia bill?a copy of which 1 sent you yesterday. New Orleans, April 30, 1846, ) Half past 12 o'clock. J Yesterday, as I predicted, nothing at all was done in cotton. The sales could not have exceed ed 500 bales, although the papers make them much heavier. Prices are firm, and to-day the market is considerably animated. The sales have, up to the present hour, reached about 1300 bales, and will, I imagine, reach 3300 before the market closes, from pre sent appearances. The other markets are all tolerably lively. The steamship Alabama, from Galveston, arrived about 11 o'clock this morning, but brought no later intel ligence of interest. Lieut*. Hunter and McLaughlin arrived on board of her. Private Utters received by the Now York yesterday, render it certain that Lieut. Porter was killed by a party of Mexicans. Lieut. Porter was sent out ou a scout with a detachment of tcu men in one direction, and Lieut. Dobbin with ten men in another. The formeifwas surrounded when a few miles from camp, and killed, with three of his men. The weather is still fine.
