'1 1 i1 NEW YORK HERAXD. ?cw York, Tunniiiy, Jmly 11, llM> " FORT BROWN. A Mitt V AM) NAVY MBWB. On the outside of to-day's ptiper, we present our readers with au engraving that accurately represents Fort Brown, on the Rio Grande. Our readers will recollect, that it was this Fort that sustained an incessant bombardment from the Mexicans for one hundred and sixty hours. It is our intention to continue to illustrate ail the events ef the war in the same manner as heretofore, and take the liberty of requeuing our friends and correspondents in the army and navy, to give us accurate accounts of every thing that hall take place during the war ; and, if possible, end us a drawing of the forts, Icc., that may be built by the Americans, or those that may be captured by them. They will, in ttii-> virny, confer a particular favor on us, and gratify the public. tttram Ship Oreut Britain. This monster, having recovered her reputation ' for speed, is new hourly expected. It is confidently believed, that with one or two slight alterations, she will yet make the quickest trip ever accomplished across the At lantic. It will be recollected that we sometime ago stated, that, with favorable winds, |he would perform her last trip in twelve days and a half; she achieved it in a little over thirteen days. We shall receive three days later intelligence by her, which may induce us to issue an Extra Htrald when she arrives. Tike Tariff Bill In this Senate. It appears by the proceedings of Congress yesterday, that the tariff bill has passed, but we think there must be some mistake in the report. We give it, however, as it came to hand. Our private accounts from Washington inform ua that the vote will not bo taken before Saturday or Monday next. Th? Ad Valorem Tariff or the Bill of Modification*..?VI. Ill It Put? The public mmd has been already worked up to the highest point, and the greatest anxiety exists, in relation to the fate of the Tariff act of 1842. The opponents of the present act have nothing to gain by its repeal, while its friends, those interest- \ ed in its preservation, have much to lose by the adoption of the substitute proposed by the lower House. There is not, therefore, an equal division of the parties, or rather the two parties have not an equal interest in the result. No one can deny, for a moment,that the present Tariff bill do?a not contain many defeota, that it it not in many inatanoea restrictive, and in ita ope- ; rationa unfavorable; but we muat admit that aa re- j etrictive aa it ia, and aa many defeota aa it con* tains, it is preferable to the bill reoently paaaed by the Houae, and now before the Senate. There ia one feature in the new bill, which of itself ia sufficient to condemn it, and that is the ad valorem principle, and we are satisfied that if the stauncheat advocate of a reduced tariff, one reduced to a atrict revenue standard, could become intimately acquainted with the abuaea practised under the ad valorem principle, aa limited as it is comparatively in the existing act, it would be sufficient to place them in the opposition, and among the atrong-*st advocates of the specific system. It has been stated on the floor of the Senate, by an authority in which we have heretofore placed the higheat confidence, that the average duty under the new bill,would be a fraction over 21 per cent, and tfiat upon an im portation of one hundred and nine, teen millions, it would produce a net revenue of twenty-eight millions of dollars. There is an in- j consistency in this estimate that condemns itself; but it would be well to know upon what data , estimates of the operations of the ad valorem principle in the new bill are formed. It is our impression that it would puzzle the greatest calculator of the age, to arrive at any estimate, approach- ; ing the actual revenue. Estimates may be formed, bated upon the known operations of any act, for a long time previous, when no important alteration has been made in any of the influences brought to bear upon the operations of that act; and estimates formed in this way and upon this data frequently vary millions of dollars from the amount actually realized. What are we then to expect, or what confidence can wa place upon estimates, formed upon the theory of a new system, upon a principle totally different from any one ever before adopted for the regulatiom of this branch or department of the commercial policy of the government. With all due deference for the authority from whence these estimates and statements emanate, we are compelled to say that they are not, nor can" not be, correct. So far as we can judge from the importations into this port for the first six month* for the present is our belief that the average per cent, duty upon the aggregate importations of the country for the year, will not vary more than a fraction over twenty-five per cent., and the gross revenue from customs will not amount to ' more than twenty-five millions of dollars. This average and this revenue will be the extent, in our opinion, even under the numerous high spc iflc rates, which are found all the way through , the existing act. What, therefore, can we expect , under a tariff where the duties are all levied upon the ad valorem prinoiple, and at low rates even under that system 1 We must expect a deficient revenue, and a demand from all clashes for a repeal of such an act before it has been in operation twelve months. It is not our wish to be understood, as advocating the preservation of the present bill M it stands. It is, as we have heretofore stated, full of defects, but we would rather see these defects remedied, we would rather see modifications and alterations made from time to time, as experience would dictate, than to see such a thorough revolution as the new bill propoees in tins feature of our government. It never was intended thai such abrupt, sudden and complete revolutions shoulu be made in our commercial systems, and they never can be made, we care uui wmcu way uie proposed alterations may turn, without deranging the prosperity of the country generally, and some of the most important interests particularly- Party principles are nothing eompared with the immense amount at issue, when this question is agitated,and we are pleased to aee that in many instances party considerations are waived, and the true and real interests of the ountry take their plaoe. The tariff act of 1843 has been now Nearly four years in operation, and everything has been regulated by and based upon its provisions. The high proteeuve features which characterised it in its infancy, have been steadily falling off, and at the present moment it is reduoed nearly, if not quite, u> a revenue standard. With a few alterations, improvements ana reauotions, it oould, at once, be made more perfect than any tariff act we have ever had, and much better than any new bill the combined wisdom of Congress can oonooc . It wovld be better to attempt ttui than repeal the present act altogether, and pass a new bill based upon a new principle, requiring the establishment of a new order of things, and revolutionizing the commercial policy of the government. We cannot expect this; there appears to be a determination on the part of the party having the power, to do away with all the old land-marks, and to make desperate experiments upon the most vital question ever agitated by any lngislative assembly. Wo fear that in revolutionising this system, there will follow a revolution in the political position of the two parties, as the people have bad e ugh of the uddeo revolutions in YhMtHMl u4 NBIIMI i?*u? Thutii Thia spUndid astabliahmAbt toopaaad last avaning for the HMOD The elegance of the interior arrangementi ami decorations?the comfort to ba found in all part* of Um houso? the magnificence of tha new scenery, and tla* talent of tUe artiata engaged for tha eeaaon, leave nothing to be desired by the moat fastidious theatrical amateur. Tha tout enitmblt ia intended to excite the admiration of the visiter, and will answer tha fullest expectation!. It is decidadly more brilliant than aver, and there is no doubt that as long a* the present |H>pul;ir manager continue* to use his exertions as he has heretofore done for the benefit of the theatrical public, the Bowery will continue to ba the favorite resort of fashion, anil will meet with a liberal patronage. The orchestra has been considerably improved. and many valuable additions have bean made to the theatrical corps. The performances last evening opened with the comedy ef " Raising the Wind, in which Mr. Wemyss took the, part of Jeremy Diddlar This gentleman is an actor of great merit, and will no a doubt become very ponular with the patrons of this theatre. Mr Boolli proveu himself an adept in the profession, , and drew down repeated rounds of applause. The per- j formances were concluded with a grand melodramatic ' spectacle, entitled the " Yaw Trae Ruins," which, with ,, its accompaniments is one of the most gorgeous spectacles ever produced at tha Bowery.

If we give the three doubtfuls fdr the new tariff, there will still be a tie vote to be decided by the Vice Pres dent. How will Mr. Dallas votel why, a* a Uni ed States democrat he will vote aye; but as a Pennsylvania democrat he will vote nay, so that the final vote still remains doubtful. If one of the doubtful Senators votes against the new bdl, it will be lost. The whole thing therefore is still involved in much mystery, and we trust the anxiety of the public mind, will be soon relieved. We call the attention of our readers to a letter published in this day's paper, in relation to the tariff, as the sound and judioious view* of the writer, must recommend it to all taking an interest in this question. Watxxxko Places, Jtc.?Among the many watering places, and other summer retreats, that av this season of the year become places of fashionable resort, the Sharon Springs Pavilion, kept by Laudon and Gardner ; the. New Brighton Pavilion, kept by Blancard; the Catskill Mansion House, where the Albany Burgess corps are now on a visit; and the Bon Sejour, at BerBergen Point, are some of the most fashionable and pleasant. Each of these places offers great inducements to visiters, and we doubt if the re are many places in the country where one can enjoy himself better during the warm weather. In this connection we may mention the Mansion House, at Middleton, Connecticut; and the Troy House, at Troy, New York, as among the pleorantest and most agreeable stopping p'.aces in their respective localities. The former is kept by Mr. Monroe, formerly of the U. S. Hotel, Boston; and the latter by Mr. Coleman, late of the Astor House, and Mr. Rogers, late of the steamer Empire. See correspondence in another column ? Great Mortality.?It will be soen by the list of interments, that during the past v.'eek there were four hundred and twenty-five deaths in this city. This is a great number, and it is somewhat singular that during the same week in 1845, the same number of deaths precisely occurred. The mortality of this city will never be reduced, until a complete system of sewerage shall be ; adopted. Movements of Santa Anna.?We learn that a letter has been received at Boston from Havana, dated July 5th, which says that Santa Anna and (1.. 11 ?.u _.i ? - -* ' wm. Aiiuuiiiv, wiiu ouicrs, were iu cinuarK ai t Havana in the next steamer for Verm Cruz, or in | a British brig-i l'-war. The American consul at { Havana had advised Com. Connor of this fact. The French Ambassador and the New Pope. ! ?It is mentioned in our foreign files, that after ! the election of the Cardinal Mastai to die popedom, when crowds gathered round him to kiss his saintly toe, that his rev* rence refused all marks of acknowledgment and reaped, till M. Kossi, minister (rem France, had been received. ; It is also known that a positive trace is agreed ; upon through the Roman States, at the foimal , demand of M. Rossi. If these facts be true, it I show* that Franee will take the place o( Austria in guiding the counsels of the Pope. Thk Death or Caft. Paoe.?It appears that I the report of the death of this gallant officer is too ' true The St. Louis Republican oi the 13th inst. , says:? The stasmsr Missouri arrived at tbii m>rt last night, about 11 o'clock, from Naw Orleani, which |>ort iha left on Tuesday evening last, the 7th imt. Mlie made the trip in five days and three houra, and nu detained eight ana a half hour*. She brought up the remain* of the late gallant Captain John Page, 4th regiment United State* infantry, who died a ihort distance above Cairo yeiterday morning, at half past three o'clock. He had a medical attendant (Dr. W. W. Mercer) lor the lait three day* previous to hii death, whoae attention to him waa unremitted. Lieut. Carpenter, U. S. A., waa a passenger, and his health had materially improved. The New Republic op Rio Gra-nde?Its Paooress.?We find the following important announcement in the St. Louis Rtpublican of the 11th inst. In a conversation, yesterday, with a gentleman recently from Santa Ke, we learned a fact which hai not heretofore been alluded to in the accounta from that quarter. Before thi* gentleman left Santa Ke , Gov. Armijo informed him that there wa* at that time a sseaauie in contemplation to fo> m a new eonlederaUon of State* in Northern Mexico; that they proposed to declare their independence of Mexico, and then to unite a* a Republic: that, to aecnr* the co-operation of the Department or New Mexico in thie new enterprise, Mr. Haekus, lawyer of some celebrity, from Chihuahua, had viaited him at Santa Fe, and developed the plan to him. The State* of Zacatecaa, Durango, Sonora, Tamanlipaa and Nueva Leon, now united in one State, Coahuila, Chihuahua and California, were parties to the contemplated revolution, and the object of the misaion of Mr. Hackus to Santa Ke, was to <nlist Oov. Armijo is the struggle. Gov. Armijo is understood to have returned an evasive an*war, leaving it to time to determine the moat politic coanaBMia to pursue Meanwhile, Mr. Heckus waa still I^Blli ico, pnraring the people, it is likeiy, for In Cgrass, and there can be little doubt, if a safliMwn has n, or should be consummated, that SMflfe Fe willI formit part of the new Republic?unless, l^Hka , Inited States should enforce the claim whUI^^Kl sat up, by insisting nnon th?

Brooklyn City Intelligence. TeMriainec in Haooalvn.? We learn that the leeturera on temperance, who gathered a great crowd near Catherine Ferry on Sunday aiternoor. were addieaaing the people within the gatea of a wharf belonging to private individual!, and were illegally arreated >y the police officera We alao learn that the Mayor immediately diacharged the gentlemen, and they returned to the wharf, and concluded their lecturea.

Suffice to say, that it J abounds with incident* of a most interesting and exciting nature, and will we expect, be a standing treat for some time to come. The numerous company attached to this theatre seem to have taken advantage of the recess, and acquired additional strength and vigor for the ensuing season. We congratulate the manager in having secured the services of Mr Noafte. He is a competent actor, and will form an additional source of attraction. Casti.e Oabden.?The orchestral performance! at this beautiful Saloon are of the very best description. The orchestra is under the direction of Mr. Meyrer, and if filled up by gentlemen of high talent This feature alone is more than worth the price of admiasion. But independently of this, the Saloon itself i* one of the most delightful lounges in the city, being the most cool, spacious, and eleganl place in New York, and the only place where one is sure to get a breeze on a sultry day. There are upwards of one hundred coamormmas ranged around, which will reward examination If enjoyment Is to be found anywhere during this weather, itia at Castle Garden. Musical Exccbsioi* and thi Desebt.?The excursion under the management of Mr. Meiflga, which was post" poned a short time age, will positively take place on Thursday next The musical department ia under the direction of Mr. George Loder. As we have before spoken of the pleasure and amusement to be expected on this occasion, we will at present only allude to the fact of ita coming off on Thursday next Fioiial Stbeet Theatre, Boston.?We learn from the Hos?en Trante-rift that the reconstruction of the Federal siroet Theatre is in rapid progress. The house, when completed, will seat upwards of3,000 persona, will be properly ventilated, with five or six entrances on three sides to its different parts. The stage Is very large, and perfect in all ita machinery. The gas fixtures will be admirable, with flexible tubes to let on any quantity of light desired by a toucn of a lever. The boxes are to be separate with a door to each. There are to be eight private boxrs, four on each wing of the stage. A large perquette is arranged in the rear of the orchestra. The pit is to be greatly enlarged and its rear t un under the boaea. The scenery is all to De painted by Mr. Stockwell, and is now in a state of forwardness. The act drop is completed. It is chaste and beautiful, and painted upon a canvas measuring 1700 feet. The subject of the scene is Ancient Athens, a temple in ruins, columns entwined with vinea, broken statuary baa reliefs, fcc. k. The interior decorations are to be purely daaaical, all gaudy colors avoided, aad in keeping with the act drop. It is confidently asserted that the whole will be completed on or about the Mtfe of August, when on* of the moat brilliant thoatrioal seasons ever known la Boston will be commenced.

They met witn aome conaiderable loaa of itock (oxen and mule*) after they had reached the main prairiea, partly owing to neglect. After theaecompaniea had gone along, they aaw forty-three wagona, aaid by the emigrantato be Mormona?whoae team* and itock appeared to be Terr indifferent, and they in oonaequence, were getting along but alowly.

In the ipring of 1846, 76 persons died in croaaing the plain*, cauied by getting loat while following Pilot Meek from Fort Boaieu to the Dalle* on the Columbia river.

In the account given by the proibet of the vision with which he wai favored, wheta he raa translated into the presence of Deity, and placed in he valley of dry bones, with solemn propriety, he acknowledge* his utter inability to reply to the perplexing uestion contained in the text, and returns to the Suireme Being who first proposed the inquiry?'"Can hose bones live?" the aypropriate answer?1' O Lord led, thou knowest?" The preacher then proceeded in ivory natural and impiessive manner, to unfold the pasage as an emblematical representation of the spiritual condition ef every individual of the human family, as ' being dead in trespasses and sins-," for though the vilion had an ummediate reference to the house of Israel, ^et, in its general bearing, it included all men agreeably, is the two-fold application of prophetic and scriptural ineipretation. In the prosecution of the subject, the >reacher insisted that on the ground of human calcula.10n, .the question of the text could not possibly be an iwered. inasmuctf ai a bone had no inherent principle of -esuscitatlon, and when stripped of flesh, muscle and terves, in which reside sensation and the power of moIon, it was the most helpless port of the human frame,and iven in creation (apart from omnipotence) nothing could M found leu susoeptihle of restoration to life and activity is a bono deprived of all moisture An archangel could not ireato a fly. neither the highest Intelligences, from the inlvorao, assembled over a oorpte, resuscitate the body 'rom which the vital spark had just deported.

Tho remainder of the discourse embraced considerations of he deplorable wretchedness in which man would have )een placed, and th? moral obstacles to his salvation, had lot God, in his mercy and grace, vouchesafed an affirmitive to the question propounded to the astonished pro diet?waiving all vain speculations respecting his sufferings in this life, apart from his eternsj doom; which irere presented with much vividness of thought and hrtlling observations?concluding with a solemn eppli:ation of the subject, eliciting intense feelings of grati:ude for the means and agencies which God had proviled in the scheme of salvation, vix. the gift of the volume >f inspiration, the atonement of Christ, the influences of he Holy Spirit, the preaching of the ministry of recon illation, on a all tlie mean* and ordinance! or divine i (race. It was a trulv powerful, practical, and philoao- ! >hical diicourie, admirably calculated to edify the chris- ] tan, coniound the aceptic. and admonish such as delight n moral theological disquisitions, and enunciated with in earnestness corresponding to an animating belief ia he subline and glorious verities of revelation. Cobreb Store or thr Tbact Society Buildiro.?The :orner stone of the new building to be erected by the American Tract Society, at the corner of Nassau and Spruce streets, was laid'y esterday afternoon at half past i o'clock. The exercises were commenced by an address By Rev. Dr. Knox, of the Reformed Dutch Chureh, who itated that SO years ago a Tract Society was formed, and that a building waa erected on the same ground where they now stood. With the rent accruing from stores a balance ef debt which the Society owed had been paid, ind five thousand dollars paid into the Society's funds.? Six religious denominations were now represented in the Society, snd the cause was prospering. It was thought tdvisable to have the printing of the Society done in the ame building with its ether offlces, and the old building was found too weak and insecure for thatpurpose. The sommittee appointed to investigate the matter, decided to erect a new building. Not one cent of the money appropriated to this purpose was to be extracted from the funds of the Society, as the rents of the offloes, not used by the Society, would pay for the building. The corner tone was then laid by Rev. Dr. Knox, who plaoed in it a lealed box containing the bible the names of the officers jf the Society, the act of incorporation, names of litemembers and directors, the last reports of the Tract Societies in London, Philadelphia and Boston, and the names j( the architects and building committee. After the ceremony was concluded, a prayer was made by Rev. Mr. $omers, and after a benediction, the crowd dispersed.? The only incident which te us marred the interest of the >ccasion, was the attempts of a genius, of the Panl Pry ribe, to discover for whom we were reporting, and not imuiiiiug, Uiwg buuiq injr imuiung niurEi. upon iuch an occasion, any ill-feeling or personality should >y all means be avoided.

ScaArino the Po^d.?Two good-looking Irishmen, itanding" bare footed in their boots," were engaged yesterday morning, with long brooms, in sweeping out ;he mud which lies ceveral inches deep in the bottom of :he Purk pond. The eels and frogs which had reposed ;here so long in unconscious obscurity, squirmed about ts though they did not at all like the idea of being disurbed in so unruly a manner. A " most ancient and ish-like smell" was emitted during the operation. We wish our sentimental friend could have been there at he time, seated on one of " them bass wood benches." The delightful aroma would have caused a heavenly tiillation in his nasal organ, and played through the fine exture of his brain, so ts to have created imaginings superior in transcendental height to any thing he has ever ret inflicted on the city. We protest against scraping >ut the pond. In its present condition it Is mor? in keep ng that it should be as dirty as possible.

Instead of arresting him he ought to have >een furnished with a dose of bitter*, which would in ill probability have revived him Perhaps the returns would intend to convey the idea that he was fouad in an irea. If so, we recommend in ad-lition to the amendment of the assistant of the 8d ward, that eaoh station be provided with dictionary.

On tha part of the prosecution Mr. Hiracbfeldt deposed that i in the month ol April last, he tliscovered that a number of his caps had keen stolen, and aii ar aome inquiries, ^ suspected the accuaed, who was subsequently arrested, I ; and a portion of the property recovered from persons i to whom it had been sold by an acquaintance of tha prisoner, named Harris Cohan. Haaaii Cohen, on being called, deposed that be knew the accused; that he had seen him frequently; had seen ! him once at tha store of Mr. Hirschfeldt; that ha had told a number of caps for him, such as were shown; had paid him about $40 for what had bean aold; kept about 3 or 8 dollars for selling them. This witness, in his cross-examination, deposed that | ha had access to the shop of Mr. Herscbfeldt, with whom : his (witnesses) father was oonaacted in business, had the i key in his possesion, that on being told that the officers i were in search of himself and the prisoner in relation to , the caps that had been taken from the store, they fled 1 together on board one of the A1 lioay boats.

The public* and other depoaltf, are unaaually large thia year com pared with laat, and the aecuritiea held by the bank ahow a very large increaae. The increaae in the depoaita we can attribute to no other cauae than the withdrawal of a large amount of fnnda from the channela of trade, and ita aceumulatirn in the bank a* depoaita.

There are now nnmeroui evidences of return of public confidence, end u i natural consequence, an Increase in the amount of capital seeking employment The amicable arrangement of all those questions threatening to de stray the peaceful relations of the two greatest coramer cial countries in the world, must have an Immense influenoe upon the mercantile movements of every nation, an influence which must tend to a rapid improvement in trade and commerce generally, as every other element necessary to secure the greatest prosperity Is in th? most healthy state. We anticipate an impetus to bust ness of all kinds, that will astonish the most sanguine, and it is our impression that the improvement will not at present run into any speculative channel.
