NEW YORK HERALD. New York, Sunday, May 10, IMS, The Ntwi train Mexico?War at I?a?1. We now publish the most iin)>ortu)it news tha has yet Iteen received from Texas and the army of Occupation. It would appear that General Taylor ? American army are iu a most perilous con acid we hourly expect to receive mtelli a general engagement having taken The Mexicans, according to tlie latest ac. ' counts, had crossed the Rio Grande, two thou ?and strong, and had taken a jiosition on the road to Point Isabel, intercepting all communication between the American camp and that place. This intelligence is doubted in some quarters, but it seems highly probable, according to all the cir cumstances known of the affairs on the frontier. It will l>e recollected that, by the last intelli gence from the army of occupation, the Mexican General had given notice to Gen. Taylor, that if the Amercan army did not vacate the position it was in, within a few hours, it would be considered a declaration of war. On General Taylor's an swer of refusal being received by the Mexican General, a large portion of the Mexican forces wa, observed to leave the position it had occupied at Matamoras. This movement was inexplicable at the time, and it was presumed that a command had been received from Paredes, ordering the troops to the capital, to suppress the insurrection of Al vares. This turns out to be incorrect, for the object is now plain enough. The Mex ican General has, according to his announce ment, taken the refusal of General Taylor to leave his position as a declaration of war, and by tak ing a circuitous route, plaoed a part of his forces between the American camp and Point Isabel.? Thus, then, our a flairs with Mexico have reached a crisis. War is at last formally declared,and the Mexicans have taken the first step. The next news will, undoubtedly, bring intelli gence of an engagement between the two armies, and of either the success or total defeat of the American forces. This condition of things exhibits the vacillation and blundering of our administration, in a fearful light. Here we have the American army inter cepted and surrounded by a hostile force, superior ?n numbers, and deceitful to a proverb ! Already h successful ambuscade has been practiced ; and by a little finttst, the American army endangered. Where is the gallant General Gaines 1 Ought not the administration to be aroused from its slum ber 1 Ought not the President to open his eyes, and despatch that meritorious oificer with re-in forcements, immediately, and extricate General Taylor from his unfortunate position 1 It may possibly be the case, that General Gaines, in virtue*of his office as General of the South-west, has already acted as he did on a former occasion, when General Taylor was at Corpus Cliristi. On that occasiou our readers will recollect he issued his proclamation, and levied a body of volunteers to assist him in ease an anticipated emergency should occur. He may probably have adopted the ?ame course now, particularly as he was aware of the length of time it would require for a des patch from'Gcn. Taylor to reach Washington, and an answer to be conveyed back. Be this as it may, nothing can excuse the imbe cility ami weakness displayed by the Executive and by tlio War Department, in rclationjto our Mexican affairs. Here we have had a compara tively insignificant force on the Rio Grande, sent in the first place as a precaution?as an intimida tion to the Mexicans; and we see how it has ope rated. Instead of intimidating tliem, it has in spired them with courage, and endjoldencd them so much, that, if the accounts are true, they have actually crossed the Rio Grande, and hemmed in our little army. By taking this step they throw upon Gen. Taylor the alternative of fighting his way through the Mexican forces, and cleariug a passage through them, or else be starved out. Now it is evident that such a contingency could not have happened if prompt and decided mea sures had been resorted to in the first place. If the President had takeu a bold stand at the onset ? fUe had taken upon himself the responsibility ' --living for appropriations, and despatching an 'teen or twenty thousand men to the Rio ? <le, and thus put himself in a position to de? >nce what the intentions of the Mexican K cauJient were?American honor would not lie placed in the hazard it now is in. He would then be in a position to insist upon peace; anil in case of none being accepted, carry the war into Afri ca, and compel the Mexican authorities to agree to a settlement at once, and put an end to the farce that has been going on so long. What urili European nations, and particularly England, think of us after such an exhibition o' weaknesses is here presented ? What effect will it have on our] Oregon relations 1 England, as it is, is like the puffed up frog in the fable, by rea son of her victories in India, over the Sikhs. As it is, she bids us beware of the retribution she has visited on that unfortunate people. What will she say, when she hears that the pusillanimous, imbecile Mexicans have not only commenced the war, but have intercepted the American army, cut off all access to their provisions, and hemmed it in, so that unless reinforcements be despatched immediately, they will be either routed, or starved to death 1 Famine in Ireland.?We would call the atten tion of our citizens to the lamentable condition of the I risli people. By the last accounts from that unfortunate country, famine, with all its horrors, was seizing its victims, and carrying numbers of the people to the grave. Unless some relief is af forded, by more favored countries, we may expect to hear of frightful occurrences shortly. This is the time for the Christians of all denominations, and the philanthropists of every country, to come forward and contribute their share towards ward ing off the dreadful calamity that afflicts the Irish. The Giver of all, bestowed " the earth and the fruits thereof," to his creatures. If, there fore, through the instrumentality of unforeseen and unavoidable causes, one portion of his crea tures are deprived of their share of those fruits, those having a superabundance are morally and religiously bound to share with those who have none. The agents and deputies of the Christian community are about to assemble and give state ments of their efforts for the past year, in promo ting the glory of the Almighty. Can there l>e a more appropriate time than this to take this me lancholy subject into consideration, and devise mean- for depriving famine of at least a part of its horrors 1 We would suggest that a public meeting be held immediately, by persons of all countries and religions, and contributions raised lor supplying food to our unfortunate brethren. We perceive that a meeting of the repealers is called for Wednesday evening, at Tammany Hall, to take this subject into consideration. What is the use of inixuig repeal with hunger 1 Will repeal feed the starving peasant and his large tamilyl?willr epealcure the rotin the potato J Will repeal strengthen the mother to sucklc her infant 1 No! Let us have a meeting of our peo ple, without distinction, to raise money to buy food ; and " repeal" can be talked of another time. Our country is peculiarly favored. Our harvests arc superabundant. At present we have more than enough to supply ourselves, and ihe starving Irish too. Shall we bestow a portion of our boun ty on Ireland 1 There is a heavy responsibility at present resting on America in this matter.

WAR AT LAST. Report that 2000 Mexicans Crossed the Rio Grande between General Taylor and his Provisions. COL CROSS FOUND MURDERED, Four ffllles from'the American Gamp. The American Consul and Citizens at Katamoras ordered into the Interior. MURDER OF LIEUT. PORTER CONFIRMED. A GESERAli ENGAGEMENT HOURLY EXPECTED. Protest by English merchants against the Blockade of fflatamoras. By the Southern mnil yesterday afternoon, we received full tiles of the New Orletuis papers to the first of May, inclusive. We give from our New Orleans papers, everything that re lates to the state of utfairs on the Rio Grande. It will be seen that the intelligence of the Mexican troops crossing the ltio Grande, was communicr.* ted verbally by the captain of a vessel, and that it was discredited by some of the papers in New Orleans. We also received from Philadelphia, at 10 o'clock, yesterday, a telegraphic despatch, with his news from the army on the Rio Grande, which Immediately published. Colonel Cross has been murdered, and his body found. Three vessels have arrived at New Orleans, bringing later information from the army. The body of Colonel Cross has been found about four miles from General Taylor's camp.? From the wounds upon the body it appears he had been killed by a lance. Report says a man in Matainorns has acknowledged the deed. General Taylor had made a formal demand for the murderer. The hotly was stripped, and in an advanced state of decomposition. On the '24th ult., an express arrived at Brazos, St. Jago, from Gen. Taylor, stating that the Com mander of the Mexican forces had made a formal declaration that the batteries would be oponed if the army of occupation did not move from its po ' sition in thirty-six hours. Two thousand Mexicans, according to report, hsul crossed the Rio Grande near Boretta, eight miles below Matamoras, nnd occupied a position between Point Isabel and Gen. Taylor's camp. The Mexican schooner Juniata has been taken by the U. S. schooner Flirt, and sent into Brazos ias a prize. The American Consul and residents at Mata moras have been ordered by the Mexican com mander to remove iutotho interior within twenty four hours. The Mexican troops have captured several wa gons, belonging to suders, loaded with provisions. The murder of Lieut. Porter is confirmed by one of the captains of the vessels arrived. [Correspondence of the Herald.] New Orleans, May 1, 1846. We received nny quantity of Mexican new* yester day, and highly important from the Rio Orande; and if j the new* is true, ere this there has l>ecn an engagement ! At head quartern tho news receives little credence. I liave i seen a letter to-day, from the Camp, dated 24th ult, which does not allude at all to tho report that the Mexicans had crossed tho Rio Orande near Baretto, brought by various vessels last evening. Such rumors had reached the camp 1 on the '23rd., but no reliance was placed in them. It is ! reported that tho United States schooner General Worth, j which arrived below last night, aud was unable to get a tow up, reports that the Mexicans had crossed the Rio ' Orande, and had taken a number of w agons loaded w ith supplies for our army, and also that our Consul at Mata moras, and the American residents, had receivod twenty I four hours notice to quit. This news cannot be true, or the letter which I have seen, which came direct from the 1 camp to an official personage here, would have spoken j ? The death of Col. Cross has, unhappily, been confirm 1 ed. The excitement here runs very nigh, and the go vemment is loudly censured for not giving (Jen. Taylor positive orders to attack the Mexicans. Considerable anxiety is manifested on Oen. Taylor's account; and it is seriously suggested that a volunteer force march at" once to Oen. Taylor's relief, for fear ho should be over powered bv numbers. Wo are in expectation, daily, of receiving the intelligence of a battle. After my letter was despatched, yesterday, the sales lo cotton were verv heavy, holders submitting to a de crease of }c , and* the sales of the day reachcd fully 9000 bales. To-day, the sales have reached '2000 bales, up to the present hour, at yesterday's prices, and the sales will be large, but not so large as yesterday? say S000 bales. The stock on hand is 234,383 bales. The arrivals, to-day, have reached 2000 bales. About 4000 barrels of flour were sold yesterday, at $4 per barrel. The weather la glorious. Should any further Mexican new* como before the mail starta, 1 will despatch it to you. I From the N. O. Picayune, May 11 Later rsoM Tin Aanir?Col. Caoss Mvrpered? His Bod* Fovwd?'The brig Apalachicola, Capt Smith, arrived at this port yesterday from Brazos Bay, whence she sailed on the 24th ult, and reports that on the 23d, she left Point Isabel, where Major Thomas, th? acting Quarter Master, informed Capt. Smith that the bod)' of Col. Cross had been found about 4 miles from (Jen. Tay I lor's camp on the Rio Orande. From the wounds upon the body, it seems evident that he was killed by a lance. <11 open communications were permitted to pass by the Commandant at Point Isabel, between that post and Matamoras. ... The Mexican schooner Juniata, from tins port for Ma tamoros, was taken into Brazos Bay on the 22d ult by the pilots?no doubt by permission of the blockading force. Still Lateb.?The schooner Cornelia, Captain Stark, arrived last evening from Brazos Santiago, whence she sailed on the evening of the 24th nit She reports that , about three hours before she sailed, an express arcired | from Oeneral Taylor, staUng that the commander of the Mexican forces had made a formal declaration to Oeneral Tavlor that if he did not move his army from the position he then occupied within thirty-six hours, the Mexican , batteries would be opened upon them. j The same express also stated, that at that time a body of 2000 Mexicans had crossed the Rio Orande near Bo- , retta?a small town about eight miles below Matamoras, ; on the west bank of the river, and taken up a position between Point Isabel and fJeneral Taylor's camp. The design of this movement is evidently to cut off the Ame- j rican troops from their supplies. A private letter was al so received last evening from an officer in Oen. Tavlor's j camp, confirming in part the above report of the Mexi cans having crossed the river, but stating the number at j lOOOonly. There had previously been so many rumors ! to the same effect in the camp, that little reliance was placed ui>on this one. which was first communicated by a j Mexican, who was prudently detained by order of Oen. "*"Vhe accounts by the Cornelia confirm the melancholy j news given above as to the fate of Col. Cross. He was found entirely stripped and wounded, as before stated. We have a letter from au officer in the camp, dated the 21st ult.. the postscript to which states, what we had no i doubt of. that the Americans "had not retired one foot from the hank of the river, u6r does the Oeneral mean to do any thing that can look like it" " Our fiag waves over the waters of the Rio Orande. and w e have a fixed battery of 18 pounders that can " spot" anj thing In Mata moras." I While upon the subject of the army, we may state that the ateamer Col. Harney, which left here on Wednesday for Brazos Santiago, took with Vr a battery of ten long 12 pounders, and a quantity of munitions of war, and that she was to take in more at Oalveston for the same desU nation. The New York, which sailed yesterday for the fame point, had a detachment of 180 men on board for the army, under the command of Lieut. McPhail. Four ca*n nanies of infantry are expected here in two or three daya, : w ho will be despatched immediately for the same desU ? nation. . . . , . . The steamer General Worth, twelve hours later from Brazos Santiago, and bringing, it is said, one day's later intelligence from Oeneral Taylor's camp, was in the n ver late last night, eight or ten miles below the city, waiting for a tow. It is said a bearer of despatches from General Taylor was on board. Colonel Hunt immediate ly despatched a boat to bring her up. Mr. Marks, at tachea to the American ( onsulate at Matamoras, is on board the Oeneral Worth. There was a rumor brought by one of the schooners last night, that our Consul at Matamoras, apprehending imprisonment Irom the Mexi cans had left his po?t, ann repaired to (Jeneral Taylor's camp.

[From the New Orleans Jeffersonian. May 1.) What is to come from the stato of things on our Mexican frontier? It seems to be the policy of Gen. Tavlor to construe nothing into a declaration el *ar, short of an attack upon his camp. This is a rule of construction peculiarly applicable to .Mexico. Our government has given a remarkable e of forl>earance toward. lhat power during the whole progress of the present difficulty But it to not in the nature of things to permit the American side of the river to he infested with thieving Mexicans, who. under the title of ranchcros, rob, plunder and kill our citi reus and soldiers whenever occ.slou seek safety from the punishment of their crimesby cross ing into the Mexican territory. officer, rannot nut a speedy end to this, it will be necessary for thc American troops to pursue these des^radoea where ever they may take refuge.

Courier, April 30.] AMaaic4H S^l'adkoh ift thk Psciric.?Our dale* from Mazatlan via Vera Crux, arc to April I. At that time the American squadron cruising before that port was com posed of the frigates Savannah, <M) guns, and Constitution, tiloops of war Portsmouth and Levant, of 33 guns each, and the schooner Shark, of 13. The blockade of Mazatlan was not declared?but the authorities were so apprehensive that it would soon take Elace, that the custom-house was abandoned, and they ad given notice to the merchants that all external trade would cease alter the id April. The garrison of Mazatlan haJ also, in obedience to or ders, retired some leagues into the interior. The town had no means of defence or protoction against an assault by the squadron. On the 1st April, the commander of the squadron or dered the Portsmouth and the Shark to get under weigh, and tbey set ?uil,as was supposed, to commence the block ade of some other port on tne Pacific, in the expectation every moment to receive news of hostilities between Gen. Tavlor and the Mexicans on the Rio Grande. there was great anxiety at Mazatlan in consequence of the appearance of the squadron off the harbor. fKrom the Washington Union, May t.] The following details, extracted trom a letter received by an officer of the army stationed in this city, from a brother officer on duty in'Gen. Taylor's army, havo been placed at our disposal. The letter is dated Camp oppo site Matainoras, April 3-2: "The body of CoL Cross has been found, stripped of all clothing, and was yesterday noon brought into this place. It will be interred this day with military honors. " Lieut. Dobbins, 3d infantry, and Lieut. Porter, of the 4th infantry, son of the late Commodore Porter, left this camp on the 17th inst., each with a detachment of two non commissioned officers and 10 privates, to reconnoitre the surroundiug country from ten to twenty miles, in search of a baud of robbers known to have been in that vicinity, and who were supposed to have murdered Col. Cross, and also to learn, if possible, something of his fate. The two parties took different directions, it raining hard during the night The second day after, Lieut. Portermeta par ty of Mexicans, one of whom snap|?d his piece at him. In retum he discharged liotli barrels of his gun at the Mexican, who disappeared in the thornyjthicket. Lieut Porter took from tlio maurauders'camp.,ten horses, sad dles, tiC. " This was about noon of the 10th, about eieliteen'miles above Gen. Taylor's camp, and about aix mueslfrom the Del Norte. He continuod his search, and about 4JP. M., of the same day, he fell iu with another party |of Mexi cans which had been probably joined by?thosc whom he had met before. The rain continued. 'Lieut. Porter's party was fired on by these men, and onejirivate j of the party was killed. They made an attempt to .return it; the heavy rains caused the guns to miss fire. The Mexicans continued their fire. Lieut. Porter, as is report ed by his sergeant, made a sign with his hand for the men to extend to the right. The party was thus separated in the thickets. The sergeant and fonr privates returned to this camp on the 30th, and gave the above account " A detachment of 30 dragoons was despatched early the next morning to reconnoitre the position and to search for Lieut. Porter and those of his party who were miss ing. They returned the same night without having learn ed anything of them, the thickets being so dense that it was impossible for horses to move through them. They, however, fell in with Lieut Dobbins, who said he would continue to look for Lieut. Porter a day or two longer. Yesterday, about noon, the cor]ioral and three men of Lieut. Poller's party returned, saying they feared Lieut Porter had been killed. One of the men'stated that he saw Lieut. P. fall from his horse. Another said that he dismounted and staggered afterwards ; and that volliel were poured into the place where he was. Lieut. Porter and one mnn of his ]>arty are still missing, besides the man known to be killed. " Two other companies, of twenty-five men each, were despatched early this morning to make still further search." [From tlic Corpus Chriiti Gazette.] DKicmrno^ or Poimt Isabel.?Point Isabel is a high blurt'of land, projecting about one quarter of a mile into the Laguna del Mad re, and about three and a half milci north of wcit from Barra del Santiago, the principal en trance from the Gulf, at the lower extremity of Isla del Padre. The scarcity of wood and water at this place, renders the encampment of a large force wholly imprac ticable. Wc are informed that the main body of General Taylor's army are now forming an encampment, about twelve miles in a southwesterly direction from Point Isa bel, on the east bank of the Rio Grande, opposite to a crossing called Borita. Here the land is a high ojicn prai rie, with plenty of water from the river, and a sufficiency of wood upon its banks, at no distance from the camp. This place is easily susceptible of being entrenched and fortified, and no time will be lost in making it impregna ble, at least against the assaults of the Mexican army. From the Borita ferry or crossing, to Matamoras, is six teen or eighteen miles, and from the former place to Point Isabel, about twelve milos. The provisions for a great portion of the army, and all the forage and corn for tho Corses and mules, must be carted over this distance. Whe thor the American army will be suffered to maintain these or any other positions upon the Rio Grande, without something stronger than a diplomatic remonstrance, co vering over two sides of a sheet of foolscap, from the Mexican Secretary of Foreign Aflairs, time alone can de termine. Our correspondent thinks not. There are now but two chances of annoyance to General Taylor. The one is a pitched battle for the purpose of expelling him from the Rio Grande, and the other stealing his mules and horses and harrassing his army in camp, and parties, detached for wood and forage. We apprehend, if this system of tactics should be commenced, it would very soon arrive at a termination. A general action would re sult in the entire defeat of the Mexican army. Potty at tacks would probably provoke General Taylor to re move his head quarters to Plaztffle Hidalgo, in the loyal city of Matamoras. Theatrical and Dlmlcal. Park.?Knowles' play of "The Hunchback" was re peated last evening, with the enst of the previous evon ing?Mrs. Mowatt as Julia, and Mr. Yandenhoffas Master Walter. The fact that Mrs. Mowatt's impersonation of this beautiful conception was much improved from the previous evening, bears us out iu the opinion that we have more than once expressed in regard to that lady, that practice and study are all that she requires to malic her a great actress. The task is an invidious one to talk of faults where there are so niairy beauties to dilate upon. But vet it is a friendly task, and one from which we snail not skrink. We have very little particular fault to find with her acting of last evening. Her delivery of the em phatic " Do it, which is the crowning point of the play, and her delivery of which wo found lault with the pre vious evening, was, last evening, every way up to our conception. There was sublimity in it?the subli mity of despair. She husbanded her voice most judi ciously, avoiding the error of the previous evening; and the reiterated applause with whicn the delivery of the passage was received, proclaimed that the point was ap preciated 4>y the audience. Wc do not like Mr Vauden hoff's Master Walter?and if we mistake not, he docs not like it himself. He would act either Sir Thomas Clifford or Modus, better. His reading was slightly improved, but still very imperfect. Indeed, we doubt much if he has studied the part much, except in the mere mechani cal particulars ; for, although tne dramatist has left it rather in obscurity until the closing scene of the play, whether Master Walter and Sir Thomas were in each other's con&donce, yet Mr. Vandenhoffcontrives to make the mystery still more profound, and indeed he acts all through as if he were in downright and solemn earnest about his daughter's marriage with Lord Rochedale. We really think the character was irksome to him. He ia not, therefore, to be blamed if he did not play it with spi rit or with discrimination. Mr. Bland's Sir Thomas was a more spirited performance than that of the previous even ing. We see not why he should not make a capital actor, if he were to throw ofl'that icy artificiality that divests his acting of a great deal of merit which it would otherwise possess. Fisher's Fathom was such aa no other actor that we can think of, could give. It was such as we verily believe] Knowles never dreamed that the part could be made. It was, in a word, beyond all praise. Mrs. Mowatt and Mr. Vandenhoff were called out at the close of the play, and warmly applauded. Mrs. Mowatt afterwards appeared in the farce of "Faint Heart never won Fair Lady." To-morrow evening, " The Lady of Lyons"? Mrs. Mowatt as Paulina, and Mr. Vandenhoff as Claude Melnotte. Theatre.?The performances at tho Bowery .last evening, consisted of " Wallace," the " Brigand Monk," and the " Star Spangled Banner," all of which were played in usual good style. On Monday evening the grand romantic drama of the " Sleeping Beauty, " I.antte," and the new comedy of "Hasty Conclusion," will he performed. A powerful bilL Oree.hwich Theatre.?The engagement of Yankee Hill closod at this theatre last night most brilliantly, be fore a good house. Jonathan Doubikins is an exquistely comic character, and Hill does it infinite justice. To morrow evening comes off the complimentary benefit of Mr. Myers. The grand drama of "Richmond Hill, or Liberty in Embryo/' will be first produced ou this occa sion in the most splendid style ; and from thelocal inter ests connected with it, cannot fail to draw a large and fashionable house. Mr. Meyers is entitled to great credit for his theatrical enterprise, and deserves, as we trust he will obtain, a most substantial benefit. Christy's Minstrels.?This fine Ethiopian company closed their performances last evening at Palmo'a. No company that ever visited us has so faacinated all who have listened to them, as have Christy's Minstrels. They I will long be remembered by New Yorkers, and will evei receive a hearty welcome from us. They now proceed on their Western tour, where success is sure to greet j them. Castle Garde*.?A concert of sacred music will be given at Castle Garden this evening. The bill contains selections from the most celebrated composers, and a walk upon the fine promenade, the fresh river breeze, and the delicious music, will well repay for a visit. Great Firk at Sotrrii Hapley learn by an extra from tho office of tho Northamp ton Gar tilt, that the extensive paper manufacturing estab lishments of Messrs. Howard k Lathrop and I), k J Ames, with the grist mill intervening, were entirely de stroyed by fire. The fire broke out in the bloaching room of Messrs. Howard k Lathrop. As near as can be ascer tained, it is estimated that the loss of Messrs. Howard k Lathrop is $40,000?on which there was insured $13,s00. Messrs. Ames' loss was about $a0,000. It is not stated whether there was any insurance.? White k Sheffield, of New York, who had recently leased the mill, lost about $1600 in stock?supposed to be insured. There was no insurance on the grist mill, which belonged to the estate of J. Bardwell, and was va lued at $3,000. About 170 laborers, inale and female, are suddenly thrown out of employment by this calamity.? The fire is supposed to have originated from a kettle of tar, which a person was preparing over a furnace, in the bleaching room, to use on tho bleaching chests. It is conjectured that the tar boiled over, ignited, and commu nicated the flnmes to the inflammable particles of cotton waste, which lined the room.?Hartford Ttmti, Afay BIA.

Launch ok tub Steamboat " Atl?-<til-."?This mag nificent boat waa launched a little before nine, yesterday morning, from, the shipyard of Bishop k Simoneoo, at (he foot of 0th street, bast river. An Immense crowd as sembled to witness the ceremony; and when the noble boat glided off the stays, as if springing to the embrace of tho watery element, which is to be her home, the shouts of the assembled multitude rent the air, and were heartily responded to by those on board. So great was the impetus, that she shot out nearly to the Brooklyn side of the river. 8he was immediately hauled in again with hawsers, to the wharf at the foot or 0th street, w here she now lies. As soon as the ceremony was concluded, a large number of invited guests, among whom were seve ral ladies, repaired between decks, where there was a sumptuous repast prepared. After despatching the viands and doing justice to the excellent wines provided by the President of the Company speeches wore made, toasts and sentiments proposed, and everything passed off to the evident delight of thoso present The President of the Company, John C. Holland. Esq., to whose exertions the company arc principally indebted for procuring the " At lantic" to be nuilt, was toasted, and replied in a neat speech, in which he paid a high compliment to Cornelius Vanderbilt, Esq., who was formerly connected with the line. " The Tresa" was among the first toasts, and the re presentation of the New York Hirald was loudly called for, but being a modest man he was invisible. Mr. East burn, of Boston, replied in an appropriate manner. Tho Captain being toasted, made a brief and pithy speech, and after an hour or so, devoted to speech, toast, sentiment, champagne, ham and other fgood things, the company came away, highly pleased* with the host and the enter tainment The " Atlantic" is of 1400 tons burthen. Her extreme length is 330 feet, breadth 36 feet, and depth 13. She was built for the Norwich and Worcester Company, by. Bishop & Simonson, and her strength and compactness bear testimony to the skill of the architects. Her engines and machinery were founded by 8ecor It Co. We be lieve that in tonnage she is superior to any other boat ever built in New York. She is to be immediately fitted up, and she will be commanded by Captain J. K. Dustan, whose skill and gentlemanly deportment are proverbial. Bores Found.?Oh Friday afternoon, while some work men were engaged in removing the house No. 38 Trinity Place, the bonos of a full grown person were found in the yard, about a foot beneath the flagging. It did not appear as though there had been any comn. and the body was extended at full length. What the meaning of it is, we cannot tell.
