NEW YORK HERALD. K?w York, Monday, July W. I*4?. The ProptM of Strain KavlgaUon.^Am*. rlra on the lead. It must be conceded by all men of enlightened 1 minds?by all men who comprehend and can in- 1 terpret the signs of the times in the old world and 1 in the new?that if the United States progress in 1 the same ratio that they have progressed for the 1 last twenty years, that they will, ere long, present ' to the world the grandest spectacle of national ' greatness ever witnessed. Every element of pro- I gress, and every useful invention of modern ' times, would seem to have been brought forth and 1 applied for the particular benefit of this country, 1 and that, too, as the instruments of propelling ' it towards the grand destiny which undoubtedly 0 it in store for it. j We need not go far back to prove this. It is unnecessary to remind our reader* of the powerful influence that steam has exercised on j our fortunes as a nation, nor refer them to the ; wonders that have been accomplished by the late discoveries in electricity. These have not been . at present fully developed?their greatest results , have yet to be produced; but it is to those two influences that we must look for the great results that we have withiu our call to make as the greatest and most powerful nation in existence. | With the first of these we will soon have established a direct communication with the Pacific ; for, in spito of the report of the Congressional Committee, we will have a national railroad to the Pacific ; and with the second tbe furthermost boundaries of our vast oountry will be brought into instantaneous communication with each other. Every impiovement that is made, or any advantage that is gained through the instrumentality of either of these wonderful agents, is worthy of being recorded in the history of the oountry, as a progressive step to the grand eminence which we shall ultimately reach. It is with thoughts like these, that we chronicle every step that is taken in our ocean steam navigation, and in the magnetic telegraph business, and It is with pleasure that we can refer our readers to the following article, which we take from the National Intelligmcer :? A proportion has been addressed to the Chairman o| the Sen-le Committee on the Post Office and Toat Roads for currying the United State* mail, by steam, from Charleston, South Carolina, to Columbia river, Oregon Territory, via Cbagres and Panama The proposer. J. M. Woodward, is ready to enter into a contract, with officiant security, to perform this service in thirty-Ore days running time, carrying the mail te and from Oreiron every two months, for the sum of one hundred and flftv thousand dollars per annum, payable quarterly, and will bemlrs transport on tbe route MinUtera Plenipotentiary. Charges d'Atfiiires. bearers of despatches, and nail sgenta of the United States, free of charge. In hla proposition be includes also the following particulars I "I also propose to transport supplies of powder, and such other munitions of war, for the use of the army > and navy as can be got across the isthmus, at such reasonable charge as may b? agreed upon. "1 will also bind myself to transport emigrants to Oregon and California at aixty dollars each steerage passenger, including customary provisions, of water, fuel, bread, See. "I also propose to connect with this mail arrangement apian for supplying the Pacific squadron and the 'army or occupation' on that coast with salted provisiens and bread-stuffs, (as for as the circumstances ol the country will permit.) packed there upou the spot; and which, of eonree. will not be liable to the objection of being stale, rusty, and sour, which so commonly happens to these nicies, when sent round Cape Horn Thus, not onlv furnishing to the army and navy wholesome articles of food, but to tbe people of Oregon a ready market for their surplus products, thereby giving tbem tbe means ] of purchasing the fabrics and products of our own and other countries. "'In this way,' Mr. Woodward concludes, 'the seeds : will be planted from whence shall spring a great com- . mercial. irricnllnnl >ni4 n?nlliv.lnrin> naonU nrtin will, in a (Kort time, return in revenue* to the general ' government tenfold more more than what ii now atked ! % for to (tart thii system If my whole plan ii adopted, I ; g propose further to employ the large force, in men and mule*, (which 1 ahould, of neceiitty, have to keep to do the transportation acroi* the isthmus ;) in improving the t way from Chagre* to Panama?estimated at ten thousand dollar* per annum?and thus in time the United State* would be in |io**e?sjon of thi* 'key to the commerce of 1 the world.' " Here the United State* government has an offer tendered to it to carry the mail to the Pacific for ; $150,000 per annum, and to transport munitions of war, at a moderate rate, for tb? use of the army of invasion. We coincide with Mr. Woodward in the conclusions he draws from the premises, and hope the administration will think well of his offer, and enter into * contract with him. As we have said before, ocean steam navigation and the Magnetic Telelegraph are the instruments by which we will become a great nation. We have already laid the commencement of a system of steam navigation, and it is our duty, as it i* our interest, to expand it as much as possible. Cabinet Changes.?We must, as influenced by tome feeling of humanity towards our elders in newspaperdom, protest against the course at present pursued by tlio press, in their apparent en uDdvuro 10 injure ana destroy, Dy repeated Diows, Father Ritchie. Almost every paper that we open coming from any quarter, north, south, east, or west, is filled with rumors of cabinet changes. If all who were named were capable of sitting in I high places, verily we should be supereminently * blessed with great men; though, from some past 0 circumstances we should judge, that a cabinet ? minister can be formed ffrom a very small man. ! ^ At any rate, now that Father Ritchie's proftts'are cut down irom $150,000 to only $60,000 a year, f let him not be driven frantic by hearing details of ' ^ changes, of which he alone is supposed to be { cognizant; let not the statf of knowledge, and the seal of secresy, be taken from the hands of the father of the press. If our brethren of the press t will not respect his situation, let them reverence t antiquity. The latest rumor is that of the retire- t mentofMr. Bancroft, and the occupation of the ^ vacant teat by Mr. Slidell. t e From Central America.?By the brig Marian t Gage, Captain Reed, we have received from Be- a Jize, copies ol the Honcfura* Obtrrvrr, to the 4th t instant, inclusive. , His Excellency Col. C. St. John Fan court, H j, M. S., at Havana, had arrived at Havana, rn t route for Jamaica in trood health. His Excellency j the Earl of Elgin, had proceeded to England for a f short time. t EK The news of the settlement of all difficulties i j, between EngluiA^ml America, seems to have n been received with^fct pleasure. h Gen. Lowry, of the Wiaqnito nation, died a M few weeks since. It was rumored that he had tj been poisoned. a There is a long article in the paper of the 4th, t| explaining the cause of the difference in the mea- t| rarement of mahogany, between Belize and New v York. j " la It we And cmw why ther* i? *o large a falling off between tha aieaaurementa made Id Balixa *ad thoae aaida in Naw York, and further, that no matter how aound or parfect a log may ha. a daduction i* alwaya made from tha actu'J lair measurement, a ad to tuch an extent aa to ranee a considerable loaa to tha ahlpper.

At every arrival of a packet or steamer to our , shores, bearing intelligence from our trans-atlan- ^ 1 tic brethren, our attention is attraoted by the Fully reported movements of royalty and aristocracy : the like of which movemenU with us, .rould be deemed private or personal; but which, duly chronicled and expatiated upon in he fashionable columns of the Morning Pott, et i ujui jfuKTii, become topics of public conversaion and public criticism. The arrival and de>arture of every sprig of nobility is duly noticed. >ut the most trivial actions or words of those born o wear the imperial purple, are blazon d forth hrough the trumpets of the press to a gaping con- j inent. An airing of a royal baby, or the bon-mot t" a royal wit, is equally hailed with delight; but he occurrence of a birth, a death, or of a mariage, is not only a rich godsend to continental rr>H<tin?l V?llt Kp/'AniA matfAra fr\r tKo ATArniaa nf tate policy find diplomatic struggles, employing he talents and strategy of the wisest statesmen. This whole system, especially the betrothing tnd marrying of royal couples, is one pregnant vith interest, even to a republican world. To he eye of an American, who with his first inhalaion, breathed the air of freedom ; who has been wrought up and nourished where uncontrolled iction of his own will, is only limited by the restraints of the civil law, and his own natural conciousness of morality ; the practice and policy of binding parties in marriage for state purposes; .vho are mutually unattached and unknown, may wm an institution cruel and frauirht with i?vil: >ut, though, thank* to the noble struggles of our orefathers, tuoh supervision and compulsion is j lot, nor could not be, established among ourselves, yet for centuries, it ha* been the main j irop of the monarchical institutions of the East: | t is the vital principle securing them life and ex- I istenee, and averting war and annihilation of j heir power. However repugnant it may seem to j he feelings of those who woo and win regardless | >1' prejudices, or of those who, when once joined, i enow thnt no acts of Congress can render such j unction illegal, and the offspring illegitimate; yet o sustain the workings of the sovereign principles >f Europe, it is necessary that each and erery mariage among royal families should not be contractid with any reference to age, fitness or Attaclinent, but only and imperatively to the interests of i he government, in the extension of her power and j nflnence, or the confirmation of her strength. If j >y chance the pill is gilded or sweetened to the i aste of either contracted party, it is made so not jy a principle, but happens as an incident; and J ret, as has been proved by experience, these breed marriages generally bring about as much imple domestic concord and happiness as those lo which proceed from what is commonly called i ove. It would be a matter of interest to trace through | ill its branches the relationships now existing i imong the royal families of Europe. It would | >e found that the link of unibn extends through 1 ilmost every kingdom and principality, and j itretches its hands across the waves of the Atlan- j ic. Among the twenty houses who now hold do- j ninion over Europe, the bonds of intermairiage I lave extended nearly throughout the whole. The | :auses and the effects of this result exist in and > irise from the very foundation of aristocratic >ower. The spirit of aristocracy consists in the mrity of blood or descent, and the total exclusiveless of the order. Let the circle be free to the idvances of plebeian democracy, and the deity vhich is now worshipped nt a distance would be ; born of its splendors, and men of the people i youU assume the importance by right whioh now 1 ittaches itself to men of the few, by birth?much ] nore, then, is it necessary for the maintenance of j tingly grandeur and dignity, that " none should match with kings Bui thoie who drank the milk of qnerna," It seems to be the policy of the more powerful i >f the houses of the East, such as the primary >ranches of the house of Hapsburg, of Holstein, >f Bourbon, of Guelph and of Zollern, to attain ! me of two objects in the marriage of their , icions?either to contract a union with some equal lower, thus adding to the domintal strength, or to ind some high personage for a match, whose >lood has run pure for centuries, but whose political influence is of no material effect. By thi* nethod, either a power is secured which may set | it naught the cavillings of the interested, or honor s attained, subject to the animadversions of | lone. Thus we find that the house of Wittiu, 1 vith its six branches, though of no overruling inluence among the councils of emperors, yet, for his vory cause, has provided consorts for the ru- : ing powers of England, Prussia, France, Aus- I ria, Sweden, Hesse and Wirtemberg; and in the text generation will be on the thrones of England ind Portugal, and reign in eight branches. Be- j 1 ides, Leopold, of the branch ofCoburg, is an im- j , >o-tnnt candidate for the hand of Queen Isabella, i i f Spain. By these connections, Louis Philippe, . \ f France, becomes the uncle of the king of Aua- i < ia, and brother-in-law to the Emperor of Brazil; is daughter married the widower of the daughter f king G?orge 4th, and thus the windings of each oyal stream could be found intermingling with he currents of another, 'till each of the twenty is inctured with the blood of the whole. To those who believe that marriage i* but a lotcry, that the tender feelings of our nature should >e entirely suspended in the formation of nuptial ies, and that chance would effect what choice rill not, this royal plan of Europe would be sa- . is factory ; but to the moralist, one of the strong- I ?st arguments in favor of a republican govern- ; nent is found in the abuses proceeding from the ame course. Trace the whole proceeding from he commencement, and it will be found fraught with evil tendencies. Two minds that are to ^uide, perhaps, the destinies of kingdoms, are, hrough the instrumentality of a Metternich, a tichelieu, or a Talleyrand, led unwilling sacri- ' Ice s to the altar of State policy. Their vows of rust, of fidelity, and of constancy, are cemented n perjury. Each finds the free desires of human ' flection forcibly turned to a channel which lenceforth run* turbulently till it enters the wide raters of death. Should expostulation be made, j ip answer oomes back " Lt Rot U vtut;" should previous marriage have been secretly formed, | ie contract, by an unboly vote, is annulled, and r?e innocent offspring sent into the world branded | v mi me name oi Dastard.

The present ' position of the Queen of Spain is an example of the principle. She, herself, young and ardent, 1 makes her choice of one in whom she can trust 1 snd her equal by birth; bat this suits notberooun- ' J ?ellors.

Fkkkman Convicted.?We learn from the Albanu Allot that the iiolto Freeman, who has been on trial in Cayuga county for the murder of the Van Ness family, was found guilty on Thursday afternoon last.

The part of Sir Wilfred Penrath waa ably sustained by Mr. Neafle; the other personations were also quite respectable, though in some instances rather faulty. The " Bleeding Nun of Lindenberg" was received with applause by a well fllle I house. Since it* re-opening, the internal appearance of the Bewery looks greatly improved and embellished, and presents fresh attractions. Castle This delightful place of resort was crowded last evening by a fashionable aadience There is no better place in the city to catch a breath of pure air during thir hot weather, and the glorious music a?l delirious ice creams are iniescribable. The garden will be open during the dav, and in the evening a grand concert of sacred music will be given. The selections are from the most celebrated composers. Woffncas or thk Dbama.?There are some very cu- ' rious portions of dramatic representations which we will confess we have never been able to understand, although we have read and witnessed many plays, from i Othello and Macbeth, down to "Family Ties." Stage performers have such wonderful ways of doing some ! things, that theyexhibit themselves as wise men an<l' very green men often in the same play. One o< the moet , curious facta connected wiih all stage performances that we ever witnessed is the rapidity with which the longest letters are read. A servant enter*, and with low Viaw nraianti tot Kia maator a lattar Ha hlirrU^lv hraalra the seal, and no looner does he catch a glimpse at the page than by (ome mesmeric influence he seema to grasp ita content*. I f good a smile very suddenly illumine* hi* face?if bad, hi* hand*, and often hia whole frame tremble a? if he wan suddenly (eized with a pslsy. How it ia possible to read letter* to quickly we cannot possibly understand. Will tomabody inform a* 1 The astonishing liberality of all player* ia alto very remarkable in these latter day* of unrighteousness and Mammon worthip. When all other* are bowing low at the shrine of the golden calf, our player i* a* liberal a* though a Croesus and a Howard in him were blended.? Mark hi* liberality. He despatches a servant with a letter to hi* miitreu. He tall* him he will pay him, or be meet* on hi* path a poor devil who ha* aeen better day* perhap*. In both caie* he pat* hi* hand deep in hi* pocket, and pulls out, not a (hilling, not a guinea, but hi* whole pnrte. and give* it to the servant or beg 6nr. Such a man ought to have a guardian, we fancy.? [e leave* not even a sixpence for an omnibus ride, or a brandy smasher with a friend, and soon you see him again dispensing more purses to more servants or friends in distress. Another curious fact connected with (tare pune* is that they alway* contain the requisite sum tor any given purpose. A Dill i* prelented, or a friend wiihe* to borrow a certain amount of money. The amount i* named, and *trange a* it may seem, it always happens that the actor's purse contains precisely the required amount He therefore hands him the whole. We have seen Alexander multiply a certain number of coins in a hat into any other number named by one of the audience; but the peculiar power of making stage purse* contain any required *um, surpasses even Alexander's magic. Another curiou* fact in stage representation* i*,~ the astonishing impudence and boldness of captive* or prisoner* who are running away They generally have keeper*?their keepers get asleep very suddenly, after drinking a few glassea of molasses and water. Now is the time for the captive to escape; but instead of stealing out on tip-toe, careful, lest the slightest rustle should I awake his drunken keeper, he usually stopa and talks to himself very loud about it?shouts about liberty?and often sings a song in a strain loud enough to wake the seven sleepers. After straining his lungs in this manner for a quarter of an hour or more, the prisoner concludes to make his escape, which he then doe* in as noiseless a manner as possible, and the moment he has cleared the window, t.ia drunken keeper?who has slept soundly under the loudest note hi* voice could utter?suddenly awakes at the laat tap of his foot on the floor. These are some of the few remarkable things that puzzled a green friend of our's.to whom we undertook to show the sights one evening Aa they puzxled us, also, we concluded to write abont them, ana may at tome future time resumo the subject. Mr. Templeton was to give a concert in Buffalo on the 34th instant Army Intelligence.

The steamers Alhamra and Jameatown left Cincinnati on the 10th, having on board, we believe, the whole of the 3d regiment of Ohio volunteeri, commanded by Col.

There was a report in the evening papers that ahe died before reaching there.

In the meantime the boat hands, not noti.-iug our lady, fastened the chalo and commenced turning the crank, drawing the boat up, and by the time she hml made known her perilous situation too boat was within a few inches of the wharf. One mora turn would have made bad work with 1 our lady's limb. She got out, glad of her escape. Why i would it not bo well to have a plank on board these boata to push on the wharf when a snort distance from it? People will not wait till the boat is fastened. , Th* Tombs.?The appearance of the interior of the | Tombs woald bo verv muoh improved, if, instead of having old broom, old hate, sticks and stones placed in the window* of the cells, to keep them np so as to admit fresh air, eomo hooks could be procured lor thatpurposa. Now nearly every window has something of the kind in it to keep it open. Fidklitt ob thi Stab Policc.?Among certain illnatured cliques of thia clique-divided city, it has been currently circulated, and believed, and the public mind boon prejudiced to believe, that the star police are not at firesent. and have never been as a general thing, faithful n tbo discharge of their duty Such alandera upon the character of the star police, both generally and individually, wo deem it our duty to repel ; and " thereby hang* a tela." Within a few weeks past, the city authorities hav* ordered that, for the better protection of our eitizena, policemen should be stationed during the day at

auitabte distances from each other, at the corners of the atroota. There they display their stars, and ore to bold themselvea in rwadineta at any time to be called upon to quell riots, or perform any duty incident to policemen. An honest son of the Kmerald Isle, who had been admitted into the " starry host" but a short time, was stationed on the corner of Dover street and the Bowery. Into hi* chair ha got, and displayed his star most conspiI cuoutly. He had not sat there long before a gentleman ; came up and requested the policeman to accompany him ' to a place near by, for the purpose of arresting a man I charged with some criminal offence. Here wat a test of 1 our policeman's fidelity. Let ua sea how he resisted the temptation. " By the holy power!" said he, " an' do ye think I'll be aflher lavin' me post I Aint I posted hero be onler o' the corporation, and if I should lave wouldn't I be disobeying' orders, shure V' " No," said the gentleman ; " you are stationed bare for the purpose of being called on to assist in preserving the peace, and to perform the duty of a police officer. Coma, will you go with me 7" " No faix." says our friend " his honor the Mayor and his honor the chaaf, has directed that I shud be posted here from sunrise to sunset, an' if I dont do it 1 shall be broke, and me wife and childer will have nothin' to depind upon. 8'pose the Mayor shud come and And me missin-T 1 know me duty, and I mane to do it. 8o po along, me frind, and don't think to turn an honast po laceman irom wuni i ngui. So saying, he applied bii thumb to hii nasal organ, 1 made certain peculiar gvrationa with hii fii.gers, and the gentleman, finding it of no uie, started off in quest of some other policeman net quite so strict in the discharge of hi* duty. Slinu Shot.?The danger attending the practice of carrying deadly weapons, concealed abo?t the person, has been so of en ana so lamentably ill-istrated of lata, that we think it incumbent on those who administer the law to inflict the severest punishment the law permits on those who needlessly use d adly weapons. A man \i ho shoot* with a^iistol, or stabs with a Knife, on the most trivial provocation, should not be allowed to be at large. \nd yet people will use knives and pistols when they are excited, if such weapons are within their reach. Hence the danger of carrying them. A stroke of the hand, or of a<cane, is seldom attended with fatal results, and a rane is the very best, and withal the most manly, weapon of deience in unimportant encounters. But there is one species of weapon, against the use of which we should like to see a special statute enacted. We mean the sling-shot. A more beastly, cowardly, or treacherous weapon Satan never presided over the invention of. Nobody would use it but a person who never knew what it was to possess a spark of manliness or chivalry. By iu use. he weakest ruffian can take down, without a moment's warning, the most powerful man? ; felling him like an ox, without giving him the smallest chance of defending himself Compared with the sling' shot, the pistol is an honorable and gentlemanly weapon. Kven the dirk, which should never be used except at the last extremity and under a reasonable conviction that one will lose his life unless he use the instrument, is a decent and respectable weapon in comparison with this foul and murderous implement of as. sassinaion. We are led to indulge in these remarks from the (act that we frequently see in our police reports, accounts of very light punishments indicted onthjse convicted of using this dastardly weapon. We think the same puaishmqat should be inflicted for its use, that is adjudged for assault with intent to kill. In other words, we think the use for this weapon should be prima facit evidence of the " intent te kill." We are not generally favorable to a stringent construction of our criminal code, but we think that onr legislators, as well as those who administer the law, and indeed, all good citizens, should discountenance, condemn, and if possible suppress the use of this barbarous and butcherly implement. We are credibly informed that many of our police carry thia weapon. They can have no use of it exoupt for the very worst purposes. It is not calculated for defence, and we are not aware thatourpolice officers are designed for walking executioners. We think that those having the appointment of those officers, should examine into this matter, and immediately dismiss thos? who are in the habit of carrying this weapon. Their design in carrying it, can be for nothing els* than the gratification of a bloodthirsty and savage propensity. Such men are not fit oonservatora of the peace. We say again, let them be dismissed. CtBUKR.?We were v?ry much amused at the following scene, which took place yesterdav morning at the wharf, and thought the gentleman's idea a remarkably good one :? " Have a cab ? have a cab 1 Take my card, sir? Want a porter 1 importuned some twenty or thirty cabmen, assailing thus, and blocking up the way of a stranger who was tearing tha Hendrick Hudson, }eiterelay morning.? The gentleman paid no attention to the remark*, out forcing hii way aa he bent could through the crowd, who thui daily array the traveller ai he seta foot in New Yerk, passed quietly on?and (peaking to a man who tood modestly in the reur, but quietly waiting for a fare, requeued him to come on board and take hia baggage.? Thii raised the ire of the disappointed expectants, and more par icularly of a cabman, to whom a brother whip had remarked, ' I told you it was of no uie. the gentlem 41 waa after an outside,**- this man, backed by tHe rait, constituted himself spokesman. " Why conld you not employ me, did not I speak to you first, and was not I on hand at the gang-way V " Yes, but I waa in quest of civil huckman."

Necessary labor dignifies every man ; you should, therefore, be ready to do any proper service when asked, but should be above begging for it?it is degrmning to yourseli and unjust and annoying to foroe youi services on any person " This rather staggered the man. somewhat vexed at being disconcerted before his self made constituents, he commenced the use of bad language, evidently determined to pick a i|tiai rel " Stop, my fiie'iri," says the other, " 1 have dealt with just such men as ) on befoie, and under similar circumstances. and shall perhaps serve you the same way." " How's that," says the cabman, bristling up and eager for the fray. " Why the next time I see you, I shall expect to set you civil, lemnrkably civil to ma-for remembering what has occurred to day, you will think it useless to address me " " Well, what then?" " V* hy I shall give you my baggage " "And was that the way you served the other* yon spoke ofT " It was " Th? man nrwtnnhlaH hia ftata whlrh ha had made readv for a knock-down, laughed, and so did hit brother cabmen, and the gentleman, teeing ail In good humor, walked |>lea>antly away Now it' all traveller! would fellow up this Idea, and emptor none but those who wait quietly in the background, they will encourage cabmen porters, fcc , to arrsunge tnemselvea among the "outaideri," and in time this rule, if regularly adhered to, would toon make a reform where one ia very much needed.
