To |>eraona from distant parts of the Union, and foreigners, who have never visited the Pavilion, it may be necessary to state that New Brighton is sitnated on Staten laland, at a dis tance of less than aix milea from New York. The Pavilion commands magnificent views of the bay of New York, the Hudson aud Kast rivers, Long laland, and nearly down to the Narrows. Ita position is at once beautiful and salubrious, the temperature being in summer several degrees cooler than ia the city. _ Excellent steamboats are constantly plying between New York and Staten Island, the average time occupied in the pas aage being only from twenty-five to thirty minutes ; so that persons residiug at New Brighton can reach the business part of the city more speedily than from the upper pert of Broad way, aud the deligntful tripe across the bay are highly condu cive to health. The Pavilion will open for the aeasou on the 14th in it., and the proprietor will be happy to treat with parties who may wish to engage apartments for the whole season, or for a shorter period ; and if they will please to address a note to the underiigued, care of Mr. C, C.

[From the N. O. Courier, May 13.1 The Germans have evinced a laudable patriotism and real to march againit the enemy, ever since the com mencement of hostilities. Several companies, composed entirely, or chiefly, of Oermans, have been completed ; and we have been informed that yesterday the German companies in the barracks comprised 476 men. They are generally able bodied and vigorous, competent to brave all the danger* and privation* of Mexican warfare; many of them, particularly thoso who come from Prua aia, are well acquainted with military tactic*. They will do honor to themcelves and the American flag. A number of gentlemen, membera of the Legislature and other*, have procured a Ane blooded ateed for Capt Walker, of the Texas Ranger*, a* a testimonial of the esteem they have for hi* gallantry and addrei*.

Mr. Mullon, in the Temperance Hall, Tchoupitoulas street, on occasion of their speedy departure for the scene of hostilities on the Rio Grande. The Rev. gentleman (poke in a (train of fervid patriotism, expatiating warmly on the duties incumbent on the citiien soldier at a crisis like the pre sent. He sdverted to the calumny which hsd been cir culated regarding his sentiments on this war. He said he had, in his early youth, stood firmly to his gttn, on the ocean, in withstanding the enemies of his country.? He exhorted the "Montgomery Guards"?the gallant men before him?to be unanimous in their senUments, to be one in sction?since they had placed theraselve( in the van, aa it were, of their country'a military array, and the God of Battles would crown them with victory. The Rev. gentleman's manner waa highly impassioned. [From the New Orleans Jeflersonian, May 14.] Extract of a letter from Gen. Fitu Huston, dated Port Hudson, May 10:?I do not feel much anxiety about Gen. Taylor's situation I tluiik be will loose more horses than men. I cannot think, with good generalship, the Mexi cans can defeat him. I have not the highest opinion of the material of his army, and he has less force than I thought he had ; but I will gamble on it, they do not whip him. They will annoy him, and he will And it hard to graze his horses, and may have to eat a few; but if the Mexicans attack him at any place where their oavalry can act, Twigg's cavelry will ride them down like sheep. These d a chaparrals *Uck in my craw ; as *oon as 1 heard of the regular officers talking about chaparral*, 1 thought, charge Uncle Sam with forty millions for cha parrals. It put me in mind of everglades and hammocks. Every place where three hundred baggage wagons can not get slong, has some d d hard name. My oM boys (green fellows jast like those who are now going from New Orleans) never heard of chaparrals ; but they soon learned to beat the Mexicans at their own game. They did not mind "bush-whacking," "muakeettethiek ets, " prickly pears," and anv common thing like swamps and " under-brush," and thank God, they never heard of chaparrals. The fact is, an American volunteer army, composed of clerks and loafer*, mechanic* and fiddlers, farmers and flatboetmen, backwoodmen and city dandles, can flght any people on any ground; from Daniel Boone down to the present Ume, they have beaten Indians and Mexican* in all kinda of bruah and bogs, only excepting " ever glades" and " chaparrals." There is a great mistake about men. 1 hear people say, " Oh, we must have some of the old Texan, Mexi can and Indian fighter*; they are the boya." Those who say so do not probably know that they were mottly raised in Miuiisippi and New Orlean*, and a great many of them as shabby a looking set of fellow* asl ever saw; but they took to the prairie* and musquitte and thickets, like young Newfoundlands to a fresh pond. We had no chaparral* when the cowboy* whipped the Mexican ca valry acroas the Rio Grande and drove off HO,000 Mexi can cattle. They were nearly all from New Orleans. Men raiaed hie those in New Orleans can be soon made officers and good aoldiers, but they mu(t not be tra melled and teo much annoyed with the mere manual and atraight lines?that, will do when there is time and lei sure ?not now. A gentleman from Iberville married a moat lovely girt, and in two houra afterward! marched with the volunteera. A rich planter of East Feliciana waa engaged to a beautiful young lady, with no dower but her charmiand virtue! ; be reluctantly left ber for the frontier, but be ing desirou* of aecuring to her hia aetata, he induced bar to lollow him to the city.

We hope *o. We know of no man whoa* name would rally the right aort of men around him, aooner than Bailie Peyton. ? We do hope the next mail from Washington will bring authority from government to proeecute tnia war on the proper scale. Not upon milk and water principle* ; not by half-way meaiurei ; not by entrenchments and bag gage wagon* and bush-fighting ; but by marching fortb wirn into Mexico, with sufficient force to defend every atep wa take. Since writing the above, wa learn that Gen. Uaine* ha* authoriied Col. Peyton tottrganixe a regiment, and he has commenced the work with cheractaristic energy. Uur life for it, hi* regiment will not be the last to enter the city of Mexico. Our reipected fellow citizen, Oen. Dunlap, of Madi son, in an eloquent apeech en Tueiday evening, an nounced hia intention of going beyond tae Kio Orande, and raid hia pariah waa ready to march there with him.,. [From the New Orleans Delta, May 14.J We perceive by an official order of Oen. Oainei, that he ha* appointed William Debuya Inspector of Volun teer* in the United Mate* service on the Rio Orande ; and that he baa appointed L. K. Xexada, one of the late representative* lor Kapide* in the Legislature, a volun teer aid-de-camp on hi* own staff. It give* us great eatiafaction to record mark* of distinc tion like these conferred on men of worth and merit? When the tocsin of war sounded, Oen. Depuys volun teered for service into the Volunteer Guards, la which there were already his two sons ; and Mr. Texada, re signing legislative honors, entered the ranks of a com pany in his own perilh, which is now in this city on ita way to the Rio Orande. There la a judicious propriety on the part of Oen. Gaines in marking with hia approba tion such conduct. We understand that the steamboat Sea will proceed to the barracks at daylight this morning, in order to take on board three companies of Col. Marks' regiment, destined for Brazos St Jago. We are told that the volunteera could be sent forward more expeditiously, could knapsacks M obtained for them.

[From the Mobile Register, May 16.1 It appears, after all, that there is no requisition upon 1 the State of Alabama at all for troop* for the frontier; and that it it doubtful whether the volunteers who are already railed will be received into the service at all.? The requisition* and letter* of Oen. Oaine* muit there fore he eonatrued only into recommendation* to be pre- 1 pared for a requiiition which he ha* advised the govern ment to make hereafter. There ha* been *ome appre hension* of this; strengthened by tho fact that the letter* forwarded to the governor of thi* State by Oen. Lang, la*t week, contemplated the railing of a force of 30.0(H) men, while the statement* given in the New Orleans paper* of Tuesday, " by authority from Head Quarters," called (or 8,400 men only, and in different proportions.? | These uncertainties have checked the movements in thi* Jart of the State?and fortunately too, for it now appear* rom authorized quarter* that there never wa* any call for Alabama troop*?and that lince the requiiition on Louisiana has been filled up, the commanding gener al of this division declines receiving any from thil State. This ii, as we understand, the purport of the com munication to Capt. Elmore of the .Montgomery volun teers, from Maj. Chase, who arrived from New Orleans yesterday, as bearer of the reply of Gen. Oaine* to their tender of cervice. It states that the requisition of Oen. Taylor is illed up for Louisiana, and no more troop* are wanted for that service. We loam that some discretion we* given to Mtti. Chase, to muster or not this company, which, on the faith of the call, had reported themselves readv. But the Major decides, a* we leuru, not to mus ter them. Thi* i* a greviou* disappointment to these gallant men, and they have accordingly sont over a spe cial messenger to get n reversal of this' deciiion^n their own case. Some of our city companies were ready and waiting for a decision of the same point. It is not ex pected that any exception will bo made in favor of com panies not already ready Rii ' ported; and, of course, all volunteering in refcren o the pre* u occasion is useless. Nor can it be know n until ord?rt are received from WMhington. to what extent the ico.umendation* of Oen.

[From the St. Louis American, May 13.] The Legion, composed of the St. Louis Greys, Native American Rangers, Boone Infantry, Morgan Riflemen, and Montgomery Guards, and the 61th Regiment, com posed of the Missouri Dragoons, Missouri Artillery, Fu silliers, Jackson Guards and the Yager*, met at tho I'ark thi* morning. Col. Kaston had not ai rived from St. Charles when we left the ground?consequently there was nothing done. The prevailing opinion seemed to be that they would pay no attention to the call of the Go vernor?as he not being in the State, had no power to act, and that their service* would be required more on our frontier than at Point Isabel. We noticed among them about 160 hardy looking volunteer*, ready to go any where in defence of our country, at a moment1* warning. [From the Louisville (Ky.) Courier, May 16.] We were tokl last night, that Henry Clay, Jr., Esq., was forming a company to march to Texas.

[From the Albany Atlas, May, 91.] The rumor of a requisition on the Executive of this State, of eight regiments, for the service of the United States, which is mentioned in several of the paperi, and iniomeofthem ascribed to the Washington Union, ii not noticed in that paper of Monday; nor has any commu nication of the character intimated been received at the Executive office. Naval Preparations. [Fron^ie Norfolk Beacon, May 30.] The U. S. brig Perry, Lt. Comt Blake, was towed down to Hampton Roads yesterday at 1 o'clock P. M. by the iteamer Osceola, Capt.

Miscellaneous. [From the Washington Intelligencer, May 30.] The above paragraph, unless we be greatly mistaken, ii erroneous. Captain Walker, (Samuel 11., as we sup port him to be,) lately one of the Rangers operat ing on the Texan frontier, under Colonel Hays, is a native of Maryland, and was formerly a resi dent of Washington city, where he has many family connection!. He ii a carpenter by trade, ana i* yet a young man. Hi* first entry upon military life was a* a vo lunteer in the company which left here for Florida in 1894 ; and , after returning from that expedition, he re sumed and pursued hi* occupation in thia city for some time, until the ipirit of adventure led him fir*t to emi grate to Florida, and from thence to Texas. While here, ai we arc informed, he wiu a young man of atrictly temperate habit* and una**uming deportment, but of in domitable energy. The New Orleans papers state that a requisition ha* been made by Oen. Oaine* upon the governors of Ten nessee. Kentucky, Missouri, Misiiaiippi. and Alabama for 8,400 troopa. We aro not able to *ay whether all theie requiiition* have been made. We undentand that the Statei of Kentucky and Tennenee are the only one* called upen by Oen. Oaine* for volunteer*, of which offi cial Information ha* been received by the War Depart ment No man can doubt the patriotic feeling* by why:h the General has been impelled to make these call* But a* the War Department has already called upon these two States for a certain number of troops, the or ders of General Oaiues have been countermanded. Opinion* In Canada of the War on the JUo Orande. [From the Kingiton Whig, May 18.] The new* from Mexico i* the exciting topic of the day. The United States Senate have declared war with poor Mexico ; after having robbed her of one province, they now want the whole country. Like the beaat of prey in the fable o( the "Wolf and the Lamb," they gladly seize hold of any occasion to gratify their greediness. What Mexico is to do, is now the ques tion. Four millions of people, two-thirds little better than savages, cannot long resist the force of twenty millions, with armie*. fleets, and money at comand Unleis Great Britain and France assist Mexico, the proseut struggle muit very briefly terminate. Mormon Intelligence. We hire received the Hancock Eagle of the 8th inst, and gather from it the following item* re (pec ting Mormon affair*:? Tut Tkmplk iif the Mabbet.?The deliberation! of the great Mormon Council, which wu held on Sunday last, (on the occaiion of the dedication) resulted in the passage of a resolution to tell the Temple for the purpose of obtaining funds to effect a removal of the poor rrom the State. Of the immense concourse assembled within the walls of this huge and magnificent edifice, there was but one dissenting voice upon taking the question, and we are informed that this one was not entitled to a vote. Tha?#umber present was not probably less than 3,000; and the opinion as to the |>olicy of soiling out all the church property end hurr>ing off the poor, was unanim ous. Mince the date of these proceedings, the express which was dispatched to the $reat caravan nine or ten days ago, hns returned with information that the " Twelve" had assembled in conference with their hosts, and together had unanimously passed a resolution in. structing the trustees to ^ell the Temple as soon as pos sibla, and appropriate the proceeds to a removal of the poor who have labored npon it, and others who are an able to provide themselves with the necessaries of life.? All the constituted authorities of the Mormon Church have passed upon the Important Measure, and this grand specimen of saintly architecture ia n?\v for sale. Its cost to the Mormons (as appears by reference to their books,) exceeds one million of dollars; hut a similar edifice might be built by contract for half the sum. The asking price for it now is |300,000. As a college edifice it would stand unrivalled either in America or F.urope. Will not tha Catholics make a bid for it 7 They have ever manifested a laudable pride in magnificent archi tecture ; and for an institution of learning, the Tempie would subserve their purposes quite as well as an edifice erected at treble the amount for which this can be pur chased. More Hioh-Hawded Paocskdiucs.?Mr. Tennock, o( whom we spoke in a former number of our paper, has been waited upon with orders to leave the county. In addition to this, other citizens have been " voted out" of Carthage by a few evil spirits, who, we are satisfied, form no pert of the respectable Anti-Mormon population, and whose acts are not recognised by the resectable Anti Mormon Associations. Mr. Btakeelev, the Postmaster and Recorder, has had hit door placarded with an order to leave on the ftth of May. These gentlen^n, who are so unceremoniously instructed to decamp, have nothing to do with either the Mormons or Mormonism. They are firm democrats, and if it is for having exercised their political privileges, that they are to be expelled, we think it is carry lag the "purifying process*' rather far. New CMracHcs.?Mr. Bunn,a Universalis, preached to a very large audience at Masonic Hall on Sunday evening last. Mr. Bunn is rt present a resident of Lo gan county, but will remove to this City in a few weeks, and organise a regular Congregation. A Presbyterian clenvman preached at Montrose, on the opposite side of the River on the same day, and many crossed over to attend the service. He will officiate in this city on Sun day week, and regularly on every succeeding Sundae thereafter. The building known as the " Seventies Hair' will be converted into a Church for his use and dedicat ed as the first Presbyterian Church of Nauvoo. We wouM suggest to other denominations that measures be taken to procure buildings and locate ministers here as soon as possible. The influx of Strangers is very great, and we nave new eitizecs enough already to form half a dozen large congregations. DcnicaTioff or ihi Tzmtlk ?It appears that the ceremony of Consecration was performed ia the presence of a limited number, an4 at the dead of night The priest hood were arrayed in their robes of office, and the scene is described as having been most solemn and imposing. The Taoors.?In accordance with an arrangement to which we alluded last week, the detachment retained by Maior Warren for this post, srrived on Wednesday last, and are now quartered at the Mansion House. They are a portion of the force which were stationed at Car thage during the winter, and will remain here for some weeks, lor tne purpose of enforcing the lew, preserving order, and rejiorting the progress of events. Major Warren informs ns that he intends stationing a small force at Carthage for a similar purpose, and that he ia determined to maintain the ascendency of the law.

Upon the whole, wa question if the stage alfords as good a Macbeth?a batter it certainly doos not. [Mr. Forrest announced from the stage, in Dublin, that he will shortly take a tour of the United States, and then retire from the stage.] The celebrated Madame Grisi and Madame Casta lata are engaged at her Majesty's theatre, London. Macready ia engaged at the Princess' theatre. It appears that Tamburini is not coming to Lond on, alter all. A letter has been roooived from the great vo enlist stating ae much. Likely enough he never intended. Rumors are afloat that Jenny Lind has healed her dlf ferences with Buon, and, in compensation for past viola tions of engagement, has promised to let him have the advantages flowing from bar first appearance in England: and so, it is said, she has given her word that she will sing a few nights. Mdlle. Dletx and MdUe. Bockholtz, vocalists, who came hero at the eleventhfcaur last season, have been of quicker movement this. Their arrival ia already an nounced', and it is stated that Thalberg is not far be hind. The popularity of Liszt is still unbounded at Vienna so intimates the jf in which journal we are al so told that Madame Rossi Caccia is to be the prima don n a of the Academic Roy ale, in lieu of Kugenie Garcia. A prospectus has been published by Mr. Willy, the vi olinist, proposing the formation of a small professional orchestra, available for benefit concerts at a cheap rate? the expenses of an orchestra upon occasions of this kind being, in most cases, ruinous to encounter. The plan seems to be the same as that of the Professional Choral Society, established a year or two ago by Mr. George F. Harris; and as far as circumstances enabled the schema of that association to be carried out, the results were in the highest degree satisfactory, though, unfortunately, the necessities of the class of men constituting the main body, by interfering with the unity of its operations, te ndeil to damage both its well-being and its usefulness. M r. Willy's proposition is a very desirable one, and wa sh all be glad to record its realization and prosperity. Wa hear that several instrumentalists of eminence are busy ing themselves in the cause. The performances of .he Misses Cushman, at Theatro Royal Adelphi, who have been re-engaged during the past week, have continued to attract audiences equal to that which astonished us?accustomed as we are to so* tbeat ricals neglected in Liverpool on the first night of the opening of this theatre. Of the superb personcation of Romeo, by Miss Cushman, and Juliet, by Miss Susan Cushman, we have already spoken in terms of admiration. The Meg Merrilies of the former lady we only had an op portunity of witnessing on Thursday ; and an electrify ing performance it wan. This character, in ordinary, or even the best hands, has been a neglected one InMisa Cushman's hands, we recognize, not " the Jew which Shakspeare drew," but a veritable gipsey, with all the lights and shadows of her character developed.? we do not know, indeed, whether Miss Cushman does not throw around the character a halo of geniua and sub lime interest, not to be gathered readily from a perusal of Sir Walter Scott's inimitable description. Without de scending to rant, she throws her whole energies into the character, producing such effects as we never witnessed upon this stage or any other stage. The cave scene, and the death of the old gipsey, tottering in her infirmity of age, but strong in the great purpose for which that age seemed alone to have been prolonged, was electrifying and talented beyond onr power to describe.?Liverpool Standard. The performances of the Kthiopian Serenaders, the clever imitators of the minstrelsy of the negro popula tion of America, have been more generally attractive than anything of the kind that has hitherto appeared in Lon don. Preserving strictly all the character of the music and the manners of their sable originals, they have reject ed the coarseness and vulgarity which made the Jim Crow performances distasteful to many. Without losing a tittle of the naif humor of the negro musicians, the party at the St. James's Theatre offer nothing in their enter tainments to olt'end the most refined taste. Some of their airs are full of the most touching pathos, and others over flowing with fun and drollery that charms ua by its gro tesque simplicity. They have been giving morning as well as evening performance* to crowded audiences.? Sunday Timet. Madame Vestris and Mr. Charles Mathews, favorites of the public, have been re-engaged for tbo season by Mrs. Davidge, and will make their appearance at the Royal Surrey theatre towards the end or the month. Madame Celeste is about taking a flight from her popu lar little Adelphi Theatre to Liverpool, Bath, and Bristol, for three or four weeks. The Queen and Prince Albert attended the Italian Opera, to aee Caatellan in " Amina." Dragonetti. the eminent double-baa* player, died at the latter end of last week, seemingly of iheer old age, hay ing reached hit eighty-fifth year. Mr. Mac ready ha* entered into an engagement to per form twenty niffhu at -he Surrey Theatre for ?1,000, commencing next September. The will of the late popular comedian, Lirtoo, ha* juit been proved in Doctor's-commons, and hia effect* were valued for probata duty at,?40,000. Vieuxtemps, the celebrated violinist, who ha* been honored with a moat lucrative appointment, a* premier vioiiniit to hia imperial Majextv the Kmperor of Ruiiia, will pay u* hi* farewell visit thl* season. Albert Schlose, who ha* accepted the agency for thia eminent artiit, haa already concluded an engagement for him, with the " Lancashire and Cheshire Philharmonic Institution," at Mancheater, to ?**iat at a aeriea of concert*, to be given by that able society in the first week of June next. Mr. Buckstone and Mrs. Kitzwilltam have been starring at the Theatre Royal, Birmingham, during the present week. It Is seid that so great was the muscular power of Dragonetti's hand, that he has been known to go into a public huuae, ask ior a pint ol porter, and after drinking it, aqueeze the aidea of the pewter pot together between his fingers. The Milanese poet, Carlo Murati, has just died at Vi enna. He was engaged upon a libretto of an opera for Liu at the time oi hi* death. Extract from I letter dated April 1:?"On Tuesday last, Madlle fanny Kllsler took leave of us in the princi pal part of the ballet of "Esmeralda." After the finish of the ballet, thia celebrated dancer was called for nine time*, crowned with flowers and enthusiastically ap plauded." ? Th* "Scexi" in the British Paruahekt ? Now came the "scene." The member for Stock port was followed by Mr. D israeli, who declared that Sir Robert Peel had cheered that portiotupf Mr. Gob den'* speech which alluded to the im pending supremacy of the trading over the agri cultural party. Sir Robert, starting to his legs hur riedly, declared the imputation to be "totally un true/' Fired at this peremptory denial, Mr. D'ls raeli sulked, and sat down with a declaration that when the minister accused him of falsehood, he had nothing more to Kay. In this "pistols and cof fee lor two" state of the House. Colonel Peel, anxious u> throw oil on the troubled waters, ap proached Mr. D'Israeli; the latter waved his himd, intimating a dissect to receive any explanation, and the gallant colonel, provoked at the insult, I left the house in high dudgeon. The excitement at this time had reached its climax, and a meet ing at Chalk-farm was regarded as inevitable.? To prevent such a catastrophe, several members rose to put questions, and to give explanations, amongst them the Premier himself, who satisfied Mr. 1) Israeli that he had not "given him the lie." Disarmed of all pretence for pugnaotousnass, Benjamin, the younger, was obliged to apologise, and order prevailed once more. The friends of Colonel Peel and Mr. D'Israeli (Captain Rou* and Ixird George Bentick) communicated with each other, and satisfied their principals that the code of honor would be propitiated without an appeal to hair triggers and ten paces. Thus ended ihe fracas, which will long be memorable for the foUy of the chtof actor, ana for the fever into which it threw, lor a time, England's representatives. I he world is full of contrasts, and no where are they found more pointedly than in Parliament, lor the evening which commenced in tlus belligerent spirit, was closed by a three and a half hour * speech from John O'Connell against the Coercion Bill.
