B[Fn>? the H*ncock^!ag?o3ay 1?J Th* EmiMutin* MoiMtb-lw ran to tlx# ferry ?till centimies, and notwlthaiAdinK At* boets *re pop ?tently engaged, both nignt and day, in crossing the teams it seems Impossible to ret them over aa natal , they arrive. Owing to thia delay the ferry landing pre- I ?cnts quite a busy aspect. aa numbers remain encamped upon the hank uwwiting their turn to be ferried overj . The ipectator who hat ?een a Oipaey encampment in < . England can form tome idea of the scene here presented, I | 1?? wo much question whether any Oipaey party could i l?* found ?o poorly provided with the necessaries of life as some of tne Mormon families. The number of wagon* [ leiiled over at this place. Fort Madison, and Nashville; ; vuce Saturday last, exceeds 400. These added to the lumber reported last week, make the present number of 1 teams now on the opposite side of the river, about 1400. i hey are designed to accomodate from seven to eight thousand souls, and we do not think we overrate thoir numerical strength in this estimate. Many of them have pushed forward to the Des Moines river, and some are en camped on Sugar Cteek. but the slopes of the hills and the prairie oppofite the city are still dotted with cluster* of tents and wagons. The caravan which preceded the one now forming numbers about 3000 souKand those who have emigrated to Wisconsin and gone down the river, ; cannot he lass than -2000 more. It is safe, therefore, to suppose that over 12,000 have already left the State.? I Those remaining, who are able, arc still at work, both night and day, in arranging for their departure;and, from appearances, we have no doubt hut that, in a few weeks, W shall have the pleasure o: announcing that the " Mor m> n? have left the State." The Thoops.?The troops have been actively engaged since,their arrival, iL scouring the country for Information concerning the movements of both the Mormons and Anti Mormons, and to our certain knowledge, they have been thus far successful, in averting much mischief. In fact, the mintl influence which their presence exerts upon all lwities, tends to a preservation of order. The Mormons have no great affection for the troops, but are willing to submit to any conditions for the sake of temporary pro- j tection, until they can collect the means wherewith to I leave. They feel tatihAed that Major Warren will see them safely ofl', as fait as they can got ready; and their i confidence in hi* ability to maintain the peace has hast- : ened the departure of hundreds, who, but for this, would j have waited for their friends, and perhaps become entang led in new difficulties Ciiairca thai the Cheapest ?A good house and i lot can be purchased in Nauvoo for about $100?less that half the cost of the building. Larger and more costly 1 dwellings are offered at various prices from$200 to $1,000 We question whether a poiut can be found in the United States, which holds out advantages to the poor man or men with slender means, equal to those now ottered in I Nauvoo. Police Intelligence. Mat 2H.?Jirrest on Suspicion.?A black woman, called Julia Sands, was arrested by officer Conklin, of the Third Vard, on suspicion of being an accomplice of Peter Day, who was arrested some few weeks since for robbing a Mr. Horaco Bowen, of Cherry Valley, Chemung county, of $800.

Petit Larceny.?Jonn Weaver was arrested for stealing $S belonging to Peter Henner?committed by a magis trate. Fraud on the Emigrants.?A warrant was issued yes terday by Justice Drinker for the arrest of an individual called W. Walsworth, charged with defrauding two poor emigrant women by the names of Alice Cassilly and Elizabeth Cassilly, out of the sum of $10 60 under the following circumstances : It appears that the accu se! keeps on office at No. 7SCourtland street, purporting to forward passengers West, and sold on Tuesday last, a passage ticket to these two women, for the above sum, which ticket was warranted to take them to Cincinnati ; but on arriving at Albany they were informed by the agents, Roach 1c Co., thtit the ticket was not good, con sequently they were compelled to return back to this city, and on an application to this Walsworth they were unable to procure tt e return of their money.

P Shocking Mtjudkr ra Niwark.?Much excite ment was produced in this city last evening, at or a little before sunset, by the discovery of the dead body of a woman in the basement of No 6 Durand street, a email street leading from Mulberry towards the river. It appears that for several days an unusual and very dis agreeable stench had been discovered by persons re siding in the vicinity of the premises, but the more im mediate neighbors ascribed it to a pig-stye, kept by one of the occupants of a house close by. The circum stance of this smell, together with the fact that several days had elspsed since the deceased or her reputed hus band had been seon, induced a person who was acquaint ed with them to break into the placet The man, whose name it appears is Patrick Mohan, met him at the door, and presented an object more pitiable than can well be imagined. Re had been lying on the only bed they had, appnrently for several days, snd was in a state closely bon'eiing upon starvation; by the side of the bed, on the floor, lay the remains of his reputed wife, with but little covering upon her, and far advanced in a state of decomposition?vermin actually preying upon tha de ceased corpse?altogether presentiog a scene too dis gusting to be described. Alderman McCormick of the same ward, being called, immediately repaired to the spot and had the miserable man sent to the watch house, while in the meantime the Coroner. Geo. H. Bruin, Esn , summoned a jury of inquest After viewing the body the jnry was instructed to repeir to the City Watch House, to review the testimony and agree upon a ver diet. They, however, adjourned to meet at the Park House, where thsy reassembled at about 10 o'clock, and alter hearing the testimony, rendered the following ver dict, viz That the deceased cause to her death from causes unknown with certainty to this jury under the evidence given, but under strong circumstances which lead the jury to believe she came to her death by viol ence from the hands of her reputed husband, Peter Ms h?Jl?JVevarfc Jldvtrtiner, May "X. 1 Hail Storm.?Our city and vicinity were visited on Thursday evening by the severest hail storm we ever witnessed. The cloud which was heavy, and so dark as to cause candles to be used, cama from about southwest, accompanied by high wind, torrents of rain, much electricity and heavy thunder, and more hail than we ever knew to fall at one time. It covered the earth to the depth of two or three inches generally, and in places we saw it drifted as much as two or three feet ia height. Th* sits of the hail was from sn inch to an inch and a half in diameter. Pile* of it were lying on the ground the next morninr.full sixteen hours after the occurrence. The track of tne storm seems to be. from all we can learn, about that of the tornado of 1840. We hear of much damage to the cotton and corn, particularly the latter. Some of our friends in this county. an1 also Con cordia, Louisiana; suffered severely All the windows exposed to the fury of the storm and unprotected by shutters were more or less damaged, and some of them have not a pane of glass left Out in the direction of Handy Creek, we hear that the site of the hail stones wss much Isrger than in town, being about that of hens' egg*. The fruit has suffered much, and our shade trees are almost half denuded of their foliage The extant In lenift'i of this great ?torin we shall not probably know lor some time, but its bresth was a little wider than the tornado, the track of which it followed*-tffckti Frti JYtdtr, May W.

We find that high price, produce largo importation., and low price, limited importation*.

Notwithstanding the redaction of duties on provisions imported into Great Britain, this trade, the past year shows no satisfactory results. The importations into tae United Kingdom have not increased, while the quantities taken for consumption have groatly diminished. The decline in the consumption of salted provisions in Great Britain is attributed partly to a growing aversion to the use of theee moats, produced, in a greet meaxure, by the inferior way in which the article is prepared abroad.

The home value of theso articles was about two millions of dollars, but at the rate of in crease realized within the post few years in the foreign shipment of those staple productions, it must, before the lapse of many years, become one of the most important branches of our export trade. It must be taken into consideration, that any inoreaae in the exportation of those articles from year to year, re quires a very great increase in the produotion, in conse quence of the rapidly increasing domestic demand. Our population has already reached such an extent, and is in creasing so fast, that we consume a large percent of our own products every year; and the time is not far distant whenthe consumption of our principal agricultural staples in this country will increase faster than the production. We predict, in the course of ten or fifteen years, a greater foreign demand for all our most important staples than we can supply, with all eur resources and facility of production. Old Stools.

The French spoliation bill was hero taken up* and again postponed, and made the order of the day for to-morrow, at 1 o'clock. iVfr. IIanNEaan submitted a joint resolution, for the adjournment of the two Houses of Congress, on the 20th of June. Mr. Houston, of Texas, introduced a joint rs?o> lution of tlmnks to Gen. Taylor and his army, an d that a suitable sword be presented to Gen. Tay lor, by the President. Mr. Bfurif.n hoped the resolution would pass at once, and that the Senate would show by an una* nimous vote how deeply it ie-els the importance of the service* rendered by Gen. Taylor, and his gallant band. Mr. Houston said that there were included in the general terms of the resolution ; it embraoed all under Gen. Toylor's command, both of the Army and Navy. Mr. Breese, of Illinois, said he should like the resolution to lie over one day, that the gallan band that remained in the camp opposite Mata , moras might be included. Mr. Morehead thought all were included by the terms of the resolution. Mr. Sevier said that ha hoped the resolution would lie over, in order that it might be made more specific than it now was. The motion to lay oyer wa.t then put to vote, and prevailed. The Senate took up the Oregon Jurisdiction bill. Mr Benton resumed his speech, from whksh he had delivered on two previous daya. Hit manner is more than usually animated. The galleries are well filled with listener*. Mr. B. still speaking as this report is sent off. House of Representatives. Several bills from the Senate were taken up and appropriately referred. Mr. Stevens offered a resolution authorising the clerk to purchase 10,000 copies of Emory's Map of Texas. Mr. Rhktt said he had seen it stated in South em reviews that Emory's map was very incorrect a tissue of falsehoods. A motion to suspend the rules to allow the reso lution to be received and considered was made and lost. Mr. Hopkins from the committee on the post | office, reported back the bill for post routes in ; Texas, with an amendment. Mr. Culver asked if the routes proposed went ! into the disputed territory. Mr. Hopkins said, that all he would say in re | ply was, that the routes did not extend South of i the Rio Grande I By the Halls. Washington, May 27, 1846. Scattering Remarks upon the Eventt of the Timet? Congress?Education?The Fair?The War Texas and, Oregon, fyc.-Ex-President Tyler m Town. ? The licat continues at the oppressive tempera ture of about 88 degrees ; horizon full of clouds, surcharged with electricity, and flashing inces santly, but no rain. The House got through committee the Diploma tic Bill to-day ; and the. Senate the supplemental Army Bill to a third reading, and the confirmation of the officers of the new regiment of dragoons. The public schools of the city had a procession to-day?and near 000 children of these schools were drawn tip this morning in a circle in the ro tunda of the Capitol. The object was to show to Congress what the city is doing for education, weighed down with taxes as it is, and as an in ducement to the national legislature to assist the municipal authorities, in carrying out tha plan of a general education of all the children within the limits of tlie corporation. For this purpose, from four to six new school houses will be wan ted, and an appropriation from the treasure to aid in their establishment. Dependent as "Wash ington is, has to be, and was intended to be upon the government, we cannot divine how this praiseworthy object, of assisting in the education of the children of the capital, can be evaded, either upon constitutional sophistry, or tUc hum buailMfliy of "retrenchment ana reform." While upon this agreeable subject of education, the Grand Secretary Itidgeley, of the I. O. of O. F. gave some important facts, connected with the financial condition of the benevolent order. In his speech at the dedication of the new hall^ on Monday last, he said the fraternity in the United States, had now a body of over 100,000 contribu ting member*?that they had a surplus fund on hand of a million of dollars, and that the perso nal contribution of the paying members of a cent per week each, would give an annual sum of #60, iXX), for the support of a college or primary schools. There is no association of men in the Union, that have such a power in their hands as the Odd Fel lows; and none who exercise their power to more praiseworthy purposes. By invitation, the public schools attended, teachers antl scholars, and all hands, the National Fair this morning, and like the old ones, the little ones appeared to be astonished, that with the American people, "some things could be done as well as others," and others peradventure very well for the beginning. We hnd the honor, this evening, of encounter ing among the bathing tubs,the veritable old Veto, our late much abused chief magistrate. President Tyler, lie looks remarkably fresh ana vigorous. Our worthy good Mayor, Col. Seaton. escorted the ex-President and his friends through the baxaar, but we cioubt whether he could be persuaded that all these results of home industry, are dependent upon the bill of '42, which by his approval, (mi mis the land clause,) became a law of the land. The ( harming lady of the ex-President is, wo learn, also in the city, and other members of the family. ? ? While we write, 11 o'clock, P. M.. a military band is performing in the street. Tne military spirit or the people is paramount, tantamount, and catamount to a war now with the universal world, making only a morning meal of the pie bald sombreroes of La Republico Mexicano. The only apprehension now is, that the volunteer army, nolens volens, will deem it expedient to visit the halls of the Aztec*, the Guatimozins, and the Montezumas. The ball is opened, and there is no foretelin gthe parties that maybe drawn into the dance, or the sco]>e and duration of the entertain ment. As they are, there is not, perhaps, upon the face of the earth a people occupying a finer territory than the Mexicans, or a more distressed, distracted, dislocated, good-for-nothing race of mongrels, under the sun. It would seem that all the most inferior breeds have been crossed and blended, as if with the express view of produ cing the coinpletest deterioration. It is evident now, that 15,000 Anglo-Saxon* could subjugate the whole empire of eight millions of rancheroe*, brigands and lazearoni. Poorfellows?theirtime has come. They will soon be overwhelmed, as was enervated and emasculated Italy, by the har dy beef-eaters of the North. . The marine band discoursed their excellent music in the President's gardens this afternoon, and there wes quite a showy congregation in tne grCo?.dBenton is expected to wind up the line of 49 to-morrow in a blaxe of glorious irrefutability.
