At the meeting of citizens, called by the Mayor, last evening, for the purpose of making prepara tions to hold a genera! meeting, in order to enun ciate the feelings and opinions of our citizens on the Mexican crisis, it was determined to call the general meeting in the Park on Wednesday next. We understand that the preliminary meeting, last evening was very fully attended by our most respectable citizens, of all parties. A number of gentlemen are appointed on various committees, to carry out the general arrangement. Among other tilings clone, was the appointrftent of a com mittee to prepare resolutions expressive of the feelings of die people of this city on the war with Mexico. This committee is composed of Alder man Cozzens as chairman, Prosper M. Wetmore, Campbell P. White, Lorn Nash, H. Fish, ami several others. The general meeting to be held on Wednesday, will be one of the greatest gather ings that ever took place in this metropolis. It is possible that we may learn some very im portant news fVom Point l?abel and, the army of occupation before the day of meeting. Accosding to the recent information from that quarter, to the 29th ultimo, matters looked rather despond ing ; and the chances are, that the next news will not tie so bright as we have lieen led to be. lieve. The body of troops under the command of General Taylor, numbering as they do, less than three thousand effective men, will undoubtedly accomplish as much as the same numl>er of brave soldiers can do in any conntry, or in any age; but we have the best reason for believing that the Mexican army numbers from eight to ten thou sand men, a large proportion of them, both in fantry and cavalry, well equipped, and in a high state of discipline, and fully supplied with money and munitions of war. The whole force and energy of the government of Paredes have l>een directed to the accomplishment of an ambus cade, which General Taylor, and the army of occupation, have been forced into by orders from head quarters at Washington. We hope for the best; but we fear. WILLTM TaHITF HK CHANGED OR MoDIFBD?? We differ entirely from the President's organ in Washington, in believing that the tariff should be modified or altered during the existence of the war with Mexico. This opinion prevails among political men ol all parties?among those who were in favor of such an alteration, at the com mencement of the session of Congress, as well as among those wno were opposed to it. It is true, the present tariff may be modified in some slight degree, as on the principle of equity, so as to in crease the revenue consistent with the disburse ments ; but we do not believe that in the state of our foreign relations any other modification will be attempted. There are twelve millions in the Trea sury, surplus?ten millions of this sum is already appropriated by Congress, to begin the operations against the Mexicans; but we are very much al'rnid tlr.it this will l>e a mere bagatelle to what will be required before the war is terminated- It is possible that m the lirst year of the war, the ag gregate expenses of the country may reach flAy millions?thirty-five millions of this sum must ciitic from the revenue, and the remainder by t , .sue ol treasury notus. Under such a view iii, tliero is no prospect ol any chnnge in fr-riff, nor vet ol the pa?Mige of the Mib-treav i,.; A i these matter* must l?e postponed for the TIm Pr?nation mt IIm War. The executive branch of the government, ac cording to all accounts, is making very great exer tions for the energetic prosecution of the war against Mexico, General Scott, it is said, has been appointed to take command, and to conduct the campaign on the Rio Grnndc. A force of twenty-live thousand men, authorized by law, is to be placed under his command, and the other twenty-five thousand are to be held as a reserve nil thi*, beside the regular army, which has been increased to fifteen thousand men. Mr. Marcy, the Secretary of War, is making all the arrange ment* for carrying into effect these operations. The Secretary of the Navy is also busy ; and there is every reason to believe that the greatest and most extensive naval force ever put afloat by tlie United States, will be organized under the eye of Mr. Bancroft, Secretary of the Navy, in order to conduct tlie blockade of all the Mexican ports in both seas. We have been informed already of the blockade of the Mexican ports in the Pacific ; and probably the American commander will take possession of the ports of California at once, in cluding Monterey and San Francisco. "Whatever shall be the effect of the present position of things in General Taylor's camp, all their efforts, both by land and water, will be prosecuted with the greatest amount of energy that was ever witness ed by the American government. Throughout the country the war spirit is rising?volunteers are forming themselves, and a greater amount of preparations are making than has been seen since tlie revolution. We have thus presented a couy iVail of the present state of affairs. Everything is prepared for a very early and glorious termination of the war. Yet there are elements of opposition in va rious quarters, which may in time coalesce and enlarge, so as to prevent and embarrass the action of the government in conducting this affair to a successful termination. There has been a great and general want of confidence in the Udent and ability in the present administration, embra cing Mr. Polk and his Cabinet. It must be admit ted that a great many errors have heretofore been committed by the administration in our foreign negotiations?errors which have, already, and pre vious to the present crisis, divided and disconcert ed their political friends, throughout the country. There has been a want of confidence between the President and his Cabinet, deplorable in the ex treme. This confidence has also been wanting between the Cabinet and the leading men in Con gress. We do not doubt tlie spirit and patriotism that have animated tlie President?neither do we hesitate to admit the same qualities, to a reasona ble extent, in the various members of tlie Cabinet. Perhaps their errors arise as much from the no velty of their position, and want oi practice in their various departments, as from any other cause. Towards the Secretaries of the War and Navy dcpartments]thc greatest bitterness has been mani fested, even among their own friends; and many of the leading journals of the administration de nounce the heads of those departments as much as the rogular opposition papers do. We allude to the recent comments in the democratic jour nals on Secretaries Marcy and Bancroft. These same feelings?the same want of confidence?have been exhibited towards the confidential newspa per organs of the President; and we are credibly informed that this feeling has gone so far as to amount to a confederacy among the democratic party in Congress to substitute the predecessors of the organ for the present ones. This unfortunate state of things, this deplorable want of confidcnce between tlie administration and its friends in Congress, has for tlie moment been overcome and postponed in consequence of the crisis produced by the recent events on the Rio Grande. With a magnanimity and unity of spir it, by both parties in Congress, this general feeling of contempt towards Mr. Polk has been allayed, while the conduct towards the administra tion, in its foreign relations, has been such as to impose upon them a degree of responsibility which no administration ever felt before. We trust, also, that the same sublime spectacle of mag nanimity and unity will animate the great mass of tlie two parties throughout the country, in order to give the President and the Cabinet a fair and legitimate opportunity to show of what material they are made, and to bring this war to a success ful and glorious termination. They are just in its commencement. Do not let us disturb their posi tion at present?let them have fair play. They must bo prompt and energetic in conducting their preparations, in order to prevent the ambi tious powers of Europe from interfering farther in the affairs of this continent. It is supposed that England and France may, on the principle of Guizot's balance of power, attempt an inter vention. Tlie importance of our commercial re lations with these two powers, will restrain them from any thing beyond mere mediation or nego tiation. By the laws of nations, we now possess a right to blockade vigorously all the ports of Mex ico, in both oceans; and whether a British minis ter has remonstrated against it, or not, is a matter of no consequence, as long as the right is in tlie United States by public law. Let Mr. Polk and the Cabinet,with the ample means placed at their disposal, go ahead. If they display talents fit for their position, and bring this matter to a glorious close, they \frill deserve and receive the gratitude of the republic. If they fail, the American peo ple will hold them responsible, and their destiny can be easily predicted. Departure of the Packets.?A large fleet of vessels nre in readiness to sail to-morrow, should the weather clear. The magnificent Rainbow left yesterday for the Pacific and China. The famous packet Yorkshire, Capt. Bailey, for Liverpool, with the Hon. A. J. Donelson on board, is among those that leave on Monday. These are the two crack ships of New York, and are undoubtedly the fastest and most splendid vessels that ever graced the waters of the Atlantic or Pacific. The Rainbow, it is said, went out with a double and picked crew, well armed and provisioned for any emergency; and tlie only war clause her owners have inserted in her policy of insurance, is about a half dozen long toms, with a young and active crew, to regulate them in case of need.

Pri*TMM.?The Printers of New Orleans have issued a card to their brethren in other parts of the Union, from which we copy the following: " We would inform the Printer* throughout the United State*, that notwithstanding ? large number of oar fellow crafts men have promptly responded to the call of their country, and shouldered their musket* to defend her soil, there is otill left a (ufflcient number to do the work (luring the ?umm?r month*.

We hope the enrolment will be thorough, and the draft impartial and indiscriminate ?, so as to give us all an equal op|>ortu aity. These are the general orders :? GENERAL ORDER No. X Head Quarters, ) New Orleans, May 7, 1846. ) The officers of the different regiments throughout the State, will forthwith cause an accurate enrolment to be made, of all persons subject to militia duty within their respective districts, with a view to an immediate draft of troops; to make up the number called for by the requi sition of General Taylor. The enrolment of the first di vision within the limits of this city and Lafayette will commence on the 8th inst, and lie competed within the two next succeeding days, and in the other parishes im mediately upon the receipt of this order. The returns from the first division will be made to Major General Lewis, who will report to the Adiutant General, and the regiments not embraced within tnii division will report, through their commanding officers, direct to the Adiu tant General's office, in order that the proportions for the draft may be determined. The recruiting will continue at the different quarters as usual. By order of the Com mander-in-chief. . , C. N. ROWLEY, Adjt and Insp. Oeneral. J. Winthsop, Aid-de-Camp. Excess or Patriotism.?In the House of Representa tives of Louisiana, on the 6th inst., Mr. r re rot offered the following resolutions:? , . . . " Resolved, That whereas, the presence of a body of armed men is necessary on the plains of Texas for its de fence ; and whereas, the services of the Oeneral Assem bly are more nccessary on the field of battle than in the council chamber of the State? " Be it therefore resolved, That the Senate and House of Representatives do now form themselves into two com panies, to march under their resjiective officers to the re lief of Oen. Taylor, commander of the army of Occupation on the Rio Grande, Texas." After some discussion, in the course of which Mr. Campbell gravely remarked, that if the Legislature were to march to Texas to aid the war, he doubted much whether they .would prove as formidable to the Mexican troops as |they would to the interests of theCommon wealth if they remain much longer in session. The resolu tion was laid on the tabic, by a vote of 44 to 25. Rumor is rife in the city thst the Rev. Mr. Mullen is opposing the effort to raise men to join General Taylor on the Kk> Grande, on the ground that it is a war against a Catholic counlry; whilst a great many of our citizens believe the report true, a great many others, and amongst that number myself, believe that it is false. It is the opinion of many, that the Rev. gentleman should public ly vindicate himself against the charge, but he has not yet done so. Vot-imTKEas from Custom.?'The news of the requi sition of Gen. Taylor reached the village of Clinton, in East Feliciana, on Monday morning. The citizens as sembled, raised a company of 75 men, under the com mand of Capt. Chase, 1st Lieut Sturgess. 2d Lieut. O'Rielly, with Quartermaster Reese, (our friend of the " Kloriilian." The citizens also raised a uurse of $ft00 for the use of the eompany. Twenty-four hours follow ing, the company was on its march to this city. Capt Blanc hard, a gentleman regularly educated in the Military Academy, and who served eleven years in the army, nas been actively engaged in raising a company of volunteers, but when he thought he was ready .more than i one-half were found to have deserted his fiag. The Governor has appointed Cols. Z. S. Lyons, Joha Winthrop, and Labuzan, as Aids, to accompany the Bri gade under Gen. Smith to Point Isabel, for the purpose of carrying dispatches and reporting to the Commander-in Chief the position of the armies, situation of the Louisi ana troops, and represent sucli other matters as may_ be necessary to communicate to the Commander-in-Chief. We learn from the office of the Quartermaster General of the State, tha eleven companies, comprising 774 men, rank and file, have already been mustered into service, and that requisitions have been made on the department for nine companies more, comprising 641 men more, making in all 1410 men ; from 1200 to 1300 must yet be raised to complete the number which Louisiana is to fur nish. This deficiency will, we suppose, have to be made up by the contemplated draft. For Poibt Isabel.?The steam schooner Augusta, we are most happy to say, got off on Wednesday evenine for the Brazos Santiago, with the detachment of regulars from Forts Pike and Wood, and the Mobile Volunteers under Genersl Desha We heard on Wednesday night that the Augusta would be detained till the following morning, and so stated ; but are very glad to stand cor rected. Prompt action in the outset is the surest means of bringing the campaign to a speedy decision and glori ous issue. [By Sanction of tht Govern*r.] OiiKD Cokcht at the 81. Charles Theatre.?Mr. Leopold De Meyer hat the honor to inform the public, that he will five ? grand concert at the St. Charles theatre, on Saturday evening, the whole proceed* of which will be devoted to furnish a band of good musicians to ac company the Louisiana volunteer* to Mexico Mr. De Meyer will be assisted by Mrs. Hammerskold, and seve ral eminent artist* now in the city. LsoroLD De Meyer?Gramd Concert.?To-morrow eventing there will be given a grand concert at the 8t. Charles theatre, for the purpose of raising funds to pro vide a full band of musicians for the auxiliary force about to march from this State to the relief of (Sen. Taylor. The proposal, and offer to lend hi* powerful aid, to this effect, were ipontaneous on the part of the distinguished Pianist, and we arc at a loss for words to commend the generous act. He probably is better aware than most of us, of the importance of music to those who, whether their ear* are attuned or not to the nicetie* of harmoniou* sounds, are all influenced by their direct appeal* to the greu*l stirring attributes of our nature. It will he seen that this proposition of De Meyer's, to aid in the cause of our country, has been accepted by the Governor, and we can assure the Napoleon or the Tiano, that although his field of action may be leas extended than that of the hero whoso name we have applied to him, yet this noble deed of his will long vibrate, even as do his sweetest musical touches, in the hearts and memory of the Louisiana Vo lunteer*. From Matamoram.?By tho schooner Empire, Collins, 18 days l'rotn Mata moras, which makes her day of leaving the 28th, we learn thnt the Mex ican pilot who brought her to sen, stated "that it was reported at Matamoras, that a company of Mexican dragoons had crossed the Rio Grande, and, on the 27th of April, had attackod a portion of Gen. Taylor's command, killing a number, and taking 150 prisoners." This rcj>ort would seem to show that but a small force of Mexicans had crossed the Rio Grande, and the exploit of 150 prisoners, taken by them, is undoubtedly Col. Thornton's affair.

During the weak Jutt ended, there has been quits a re vival in muiic and musical matter*' the several con" certs which have taken jilace having been highly suocess ful. The molt im|>orUnt of these event*, wa? the great concert of Signora Pico, on Tuesding evening last, which was a splendid affair, anil most numeroualy at tended. Never have we heard our own favorite Pico in better voice, or leen her in seemingly better ipirit*. Her Ant appearance was made in the duet of "Dunque io Son," which ihe sang with Mr. P. Mayer. We particularly ad mired, in thii.the great flexibility of her voice, and her charming conception of Rossini's character ; but regret to state that Mr. Mayer'a deficiency in the latter point, greatly marred the otherwise beautiful cffect of the duet The gentleman seemed either not to know, or to have forgotten, the charactor he was |>ersonaUng?al least, we should imagine so, by the solemn sobriety of his style.? Next, Signora P. sang a beautiful cavatina by Verdi, wherein she produced a most delightful effect in the crescendo, towards the end of tho first andante. The ?{ legre part was also sung with much brillianev. The great duot lrom Norma, "Deh Conte," was migmflcontly executed by Signora Pico and MUs North all. It was, perhaps, the most warmly applauded piece of the even ing. To suit the voices of the two ladies, they ?ang it a note lower than it is written, which brought it ailmirably into the best range of both voices. They also shifted and changed certain passages, m order to produceja more de cided and perfect effect. Miss Northall fully merited all the warm applause she received, for ihe never before sang in such excellent style and school?this is, perhaps, the best proof of the effect and influence of good exam ple ; but the poor girl will be spoiled by the extraordi nary puffs of her admirers. Had she not practised it with so excellent an artist as Madame Pico, we question whether she could easily have improved upon the man ner iu which she sang her part, in the same duct, at the concert of the German society, not long sincc. As it is, she fully merits the greatest praise. Only one or two slight faults could have possibly beea discovered by a

very fastidious critic?one, a radtnea, in which she came a little out of the key, ending it on a wrong note, and the other, in the last allegro-, which, though tirilliantly and effectively given, was some little overstrained, anil too loud, on Miss Northall's part. But we will find no fault, where we have so much reason to be delighted , and these arc trifles to which every artist is occasionally lia ble. At the end of this duet, a splendid wreath was thrown to Madame Pico, to which the following little poem was attached :? Welcome, sweet Pico, dearest Queen of song, Thou eharming wearer of Harmonia's crown ! Now greets thee once again, proud (Jothem's throng Of beauty, wit and fashion. All bow down Before tho magic of thy voice, whose every tone Kach bosom echoes with a rapture-peal Tis heavenly music .which thy voice alone Can waken, and the heart alone can feel. B. Tho beautiful and popular Spanish song, "Tu Sandunga," received, as was to be expected, a most rapturous encore. Madame Pico sang it with all that archness and coquet* rv, whioh has made it so universal a favorite in this city. The gem of the evening, however, was a grand aria, by Verdi, " Non fu sogno," which we heard for the first time, and which is a most charming composition. Here Signora Pico, more than in any other piece during the evening, displayed the rich, full power of her de lightful voice. Madame Otto sang extremely well. Her first aria, from " Roberto Devereux," seemed to us to have been taken a little too fast in tho first movemont; but for the rest it was very correctly sung. Her>ocond was "Robert, Rcbert," from " Robert le Dialile," which ?lie sang in German, and e\cccdingly well. The greatest charm;of this lady's singing, is that she always sings beautifully correct in' time and tuna, qualities which many other distinguished artists are often deficient in. M. Gibert sang a romance and a duett, with Madame Pico, in his usual small voice, but in fine and artistical style. Mr. Kyle played a set of brilliant variations on " Bcllragio," a very beautiful arrangement, and admira bly played. Messrs.fTimm and Beames accompanied the different pieces. Mr. Beames gained great and well merited applause from the most judicions part of the au diencc, for the goo,! t.utc and style of his playing, espe cially in accompan) inf.* the flute foIo, and the grand aria t rom " I Lombanli n All we have to say in con clusion, is, that Madamo Pico should not delay giving another concert, in order to accommodate all who ware unable to gain admissioL at this. Messrs. Phillip Kkhi r, a*d Herman WoLlenhaupt gave a concert at the Apollo on Thursday evening, which was highly successful and well attended. Mr. Ernst la a Ane performer on the Boehm flute, and Mr. Wollenhaupt a must artiitieal and clever young pianist Mrs. Edward Loder, Mr. P. Mayer, and Mr. Timra assis ted on this occasion. Mr. Wollenhaupt, among other pieces, played a fantasia of Thalberg, which was really a most artistical and difficult performance. In the duets for flute and piano it seemed to us that the latter was too low in tone to hnrmonize with the former. The vocal ists received great applause. The Messiah.?This most classical and sublime of all oratsrios, was performed on Friday evening, by the New York Sacred Music'Society, at the Tabernacle. The performance of a work like this, by the very numerous chorus of the society, and aided in the principal parts by such vocalists as Madame Pico, Miss Northall,and Messrs. Colburn and Sheppard, of course attracted a very large auditory; and to judge by the repeated applause, the performance guve very general satisfaction. As a whole, we must admit that the oratorio was much better given than many former performances of this society had led us to expect; yet it was very far from faultless. But to begin at the beginning: the orchestra was somewhat too weak to be as effective as might have been desired, and though the parts were played with a considerable degree of accuracy, the light and shade of difterent nieces was not sufficiently marked: and in the accompaniments, the musicians too frequently followed more closely the mu sic before them, thantha taste or caprices of the singers. The choruses generally were much better than usual, and in many instances gave the majestic and sublime mu sic of Handel, as well 2s we could desire to hear them. This was especially the case in "For unto us a child is born," and in the "Hallelujah!" both of which were magnificently given. The first chorus,and the one, "Their sound is gone out," were perhaps the most ineffective and faulty of the evening. The 'voices seemed not to be well divided; and especially among the toprani, there were a number of most harsh and disagreeable ones perceptible, which did not mingle or assort well with the general mass. We should re commend to have them better divided, even if there were less of them, on another occasion. Madame Pico was evi dently out of her element in Handel's music, yet de serves great credit for her distinct pronunciation of a language to which she is a stranger. Her first air is much too low for her voice, and whether from this cause or from embarrassment, she got out in one passage, but most adroitly managed to come back into the proper key. Her " I know that my Redeemer liveth," received an encore, and was, considering all the difficulties under which she labored, a most creditable performance. We cannot say, however, that we altogether admired her closing cadences, which were of a style too, different from that of the " Messiah." Miss Northall received much and well merited applause. She sang occasionally a little sharp in the recitatives, and sang the air, " But thou didst not leave his soul in hell," in a very excellent atvle, but with an expression rather of sadness than of triumph, which latter we consider the proper conception. The " rejoice greatly," was her most successful effort, and was really excellently given. Mr. Colburn possess es a fine voice, but has rather an unfinished and unartis tical style, especially in the recitative. His execution of " Every valley," was the best of his efforts, and was most deservedly and warmly applauded. Mr. Sheppard sang in excellenWaste and voice throughout, and gave the air, " Why do the nations." nnd the one immediately after, as well as the most fastidious could desire. In speaking of the latter, we must not omit giving Mr. Walter his meed of praise, for the nice manner in which he played the trumpet obligate. Mr. Hill conducted the Oratorio with more than his usual firmness and steadiness. The Dksext.?No musical production has been so emi nently successful, on both sides of the Atlantic, as Feli cien David's "Choral Symphony," by the above name. It will again he performed nt the Tabernacle, under the direction of Mr. George Loder, on Monday evening next This will make the filth time of its performance. The Grafto Festival ConcEaT, in aid of the Philhar monic Hall Fund, will take place on Wednesday evening next, at Castle Garden. That night will be an era in the musical history of our country. The Secoko Gbard Comcert, 4 la Musard, by Mr. Blessner, and a band of thirty performers, with the fa ther aid of Miss Stone and Mr. Maeder, was |to be given in Boston at the Melodeoa last evening. Signor AntogninI and Signor Tomasi have arrived in town. Theatricals^ Park Theatre.?The bill of Friday evening was re. peated at the Park, last night, with greater eeUt, if pos. sible, than on the first occasion. Although it is by no means the most fitting character for her peculiar talents, Mrs. Mowatt can lose nothing of her fame by the per formance of Mrs. Hal lor; and we think that she displayed much improvement last night over her first personation of the part. Mr. VandenhoD plays the "Stranger" well, yet it Is clear that it does not lie in that line of acting in which he is most circulated to excel. He is far superior as "Antony," "Kitily," or the "Buke A ram a." The comedy or "Fashion was received with undiminished applauso. On Monday evening, Mr. VandenholT takes a i benefit, and plays two of his best parts?'"Cato," in Ad dison's celebrated classic tragedy of that name, and Dori j court, in the "Belle's Stratagem.' The former is the part in which his father excels, and we doubt not the younger I will deserve in it the laurels which were gained by the elder VandcuhoA'. The cast, throughout, is remarkably good. Bower? Theatre ?Owing to the inclemency of the weather, there was not quite so good a house as usual at the Bowery last night. There was, however, audience enough to make the walls ring again with applause at the spirit and excellence of the performances. The thrill ing drama of the "Avenger," and the intensely intonat ing "Ugolino," weru the chief attractions. "The Lady and the Devil," an c.-cquisite little comedy, was also cap itally performed. Ur ier the skilful management of the enterprising Mr. Jackson, the Btfwery deserves to be what it really is, the People's Theatre, and the public evince their full appreciation of its great merits by very liberal patronage. On Monday evening. Miss Julia Dean, a talente i young Americas actress, appears as Julia, in the "Huncl.back," to Mr. Scott's Master Wal. ter. The spectacle of the "Jewess" is also to be played Rocxwrt-t. aivd Store's Circus, whose numerous snd unequalled array of artists we have had occasion lately to notice, as performing la Brooklyn to a most unprece dented series of crow led nouses, is, as we learn, to exhi bit there n few days longer. North, Franhlin, McFnr land, John Goesin, nnl the splendid equestrian heroine, Mrs. Gossin, seem to have taken the hearts of all Brook lyn by storm, by the display of their widely renowned abilities. This coming week the nlsy of the "' Bull Fight," whose singular srancs, tragic nnd amusing, always create excitement wherever announced, is to be performed every night It displays the high training of a very re markable horae- Its splendid wardrobe ana housings are the admirad work of Andrew J.

The British residents in China have made a liberal sub scription for the purpose of a clergyman of the Church of hngland in the city of Canton for five years, and have appointed a committee to communicate with the Bishop of London, and request him to appoint a suitable person. The movement appears to have been commenced hy the Americans, who had in view a jeint subscription for the common benefit. The Archbishop of Canterbury, in obedience to the order of her Majesty in council, nas prepared a form of Srayer and thanksgiving for tho victories obtained by the ritish troops, in the vicinity of the Sutlei, over the Sikhs. This form is directed to be used, at the morning and evening service, in all the cliajtels of England ana Wales. The Conventions of the following diocesei assemble during the present month: Georgia. Alabama, Missouri, Kentucky, Pennsylvania. Virginia, New Jersey, Dela ware, North Carolina, and Maryland. Ordikatio*.?On Easter Sunday, the Rt. Rev. the Bishop of the diocese admitted to the holy order of dea cons in Christ Church, St. Louis, Mr. Enoch Reed, lately a licensed preacher in the Methodist denomination. The sermon was pre ached by the Bishop. Mr. Reed had been admitted into the churcn by baptism during tho preceding week, and had also received the rite of confirmation from the hands of the Bishop. Confirmation.?On the Sunday after Easter, Bishop Hawks confirmed thirteen persons in Christ Church, St. Louis. The Rev.

Patino Broadway.?We really hope the new Corpo ration will carry out the laudable plan commenced by' the old one, of paving Broadway. i> rom Fulton to Heade street, paving is going on in small patches, and if they will only give us a new pavement clear up, the people will gladly pay for it; and we shall have one of the Anest streets in the world. Tut Chi'bches.?The churches will probably be well filled to-day by the clerical and religious gentlemen and ladies who are here attending the anniversaries. New York churches have got themselves into rather bad re pute by the uncourteous manner in which strangers are treated in them. Wc hope these gentlemen will be able to carry home a better report. Cobonf.b's Office.?The Coroner held an inquest yes terday at the City Hospital, on the body of a colored wo man by the name of Rachael Schene, who came to her death by the injuries received, from being burnt, caused by her clothing accidentally taking fire. Police Intelligence. Mat 16.?Jirrat of a FuHtioe ? A man called Dennis Driscoll, was arrested last night by officer McManus, of the Sixth ward, charged with being a fugitive from jus tice. Committed by Justice Osborne. Highway Robbery.?A man by the name of William Logan, who only arrived in this city last week from Li vcntool, was passing down 11th street last night, a little in liquor, and when near the Sixth avenue was suddenly attacked bv two ruffians who knockcd him down by a blow on the side of the head, and while in a state of in sensibility robbed him of a silver watch and $7 in money, with which the scoundrels escaped without detection. Police matters were exceedingly dull yesterday in all the courts, possibly on account of the storm; even the rum heads were scarce. This, however, may possibly be accounted for from the great dislike these chaps have of any thing in the shape of water. Jl Deathly Scene.?Officer Turner was passing along the Park yesterday afternoon, in one of the heaviest showers, when he observed an old black man staggering along, with a basket in one hand, evidently half seas over, who inquired of the officer where they took lost children. Tne officer turned round and pointed to the alms house?at the same time asking him how old the children were that were lost; the black man, after some tottering and bending about, evidently with great treuble to keen his feet, informed the officcr that ono was a day old and the other about a day and a half. This rather sur prised the officer, who inquired of the darkie how they could run away, so young. Oh ! said he, day did'nt run away, massa, 1 ab um here; and upon the old nigger turni ng over some dirty rags which laid in the basket, said here dem ar ! which proved to be two little black babies, twins, apparently about a day old, laying together in the arms of death. The officer finding that they were dead children, instead of live ones, as he expected, di rected him to the dead house to deposit his treasure. Varieties.

The engineer, in assisting to pull him up the hatchway, was slightly scalded.?Montreal Gat. VUk. DanielWebiteb's Fabn.?We learn from the Concord (N.H.) SleUenssn, that the Northern railroad makei sad work with the farm of Hon. Daniel Webiter, in Frank lin. The beautiful tillage lot. containing one hundred acres,'lying directly louth of the family mansion, is cut in twain by the road, and not only so, but the road runs between the house and the out buildings. The chief purpose of Mr. Webster, in his tourney to Franklin week before last, was to determine whether to remove the mansion of his father, the lata Ebenezar Webster.? His determination is to let it remain, and a dwelling for his tenant is to be erected west of the reed. The corpo ration accepted the offer of Mr. Webster, and paid him what he asked?flAOO, an amount probably as moderate, or more so, than for any other equally valuable soil at any point on the route ; even taking into no eocount the disturbance of the farm buildings.

The night came, and fires were set, which consumed two dwelling bouses and stables.

Reading Bonds fell off J per cent; Mor ris Canal, J; and Long liland, 1?while Canton went op J percent. The transaction* were not very large, and the market i* rery unsettled.

Hod price* been very much inflated, there would have been a panic among the brokers, greater than ever before experienced; had the fancie* been any where near former high price*, there would have been a terrible timo among the bull* in Wall street, and the beer* would not have been much better off than their victim*.

A new counterfeit, not described in the detectors, on the Exchange Bank of Virginia, of the denomination of fives, is in circulation.
