I1 1VEW YORK HERALD. Veiv York, ThitriMliiy, Aiikii?I '41, IM40. N??v? (ruin Knro|M ? \tr.ilr* In l-'i-nncc?1 > * Klt-rllon*. The next steamer from Europe, due at Iloston on Tuesday or Wednesday ot the coming week, will bring us news from Europe of considerable political importance. Not only does the critical BlBiU Ol iiitiiirs in irtfiaiiu ^ivt* rise iu uhojcouii^ speculations on the furure fate of that distracted country, but the revolutionaay spirit ol the age is stirring in France, and the electoral contcst between he conservative and democratic, or war party, will have stirred up the passions of all elates. Our files from France will probably give iu sullicient results to determine the success or the overthrow of the parly now in power?the Guizot party. These elections in France are of a very peculiar character, and though the result may not be a true exposition of national feeling, yet it will determine definitively whether the present policy ol the government is to be sustained, and the power of the Guizot ministry strengthened. M. Guizot, himself, perhaps apprehensive of a defeat or a meagre victory, has lately come out with a speech defining his position. This we insert in our cclumns to-day, as a fair sample of the principles upon which the French government works, and by which it is governed. Notwithstanding the protestations ngainst the charge of inertness, and the determin en expressions ol keeping pace with the rapid strides of the age, the whole language betrays a spirit strictly conservative. Yet, conservative as it i?, ni> one can avoid observing the lemarkable difference between the sentiments expressed now and those which would ha\re been promulgated by the head of a European cabinet a few years ago. Every paragraph evinces the march of re- ] publican feeling even in the courts of a king, j Whether the words of the minister portray the j honest Icelings ol his heart, cannot be known; but even if they do not, so much the more do they show that the tune has come when the opinions of the people must be respected, and that the latter must have influence in the guidance of the reins of the empire. There can be no doubt but that the universal j feeling hi France is republican, and if the strict supervision held over the press prevents a public demonstration in favor of pure democratic doctrines, it is but for a short period. Time itself is a great democrat, a regular locofoco, and with its leveling influences will soon bring about not only a public exhibition of equal rights in France, but i throughout the whole of Europe. A nation which 1 has hitherto worked great changes in the political course of other nations will not long remain blind to that which will be most conducive to her own interests, and France, while she set the example in theory to the eastern world,of principles which cannot much longer rest without an effort of practically illustrating their benefits in ber own person. The two grand parties between whom the political contest is at present carried on, are evin more distinctive in their views and policy than our two great divisions in America. The present ruling power iu Franco is, a? is well known, led on and commanded by M. Guizot, who pursues a sale line ot" conduct, very agreeable to the feelings of the mercantile clsasai, the communt, and all who desire wealth and peace for comfort's sake ; a course, which ever yielding for the lurthwraHce of peaceful counsels, creeps carefully nnd steadily along with an even tenor and an uprufflt-d current. The other party, on the contrary, denominated .he Thiers party, is actuated by that impulsive, volatile spirit, for which the French nation is usual)/ characterized, and being impregnated with the native love of military glory and chivalrous ypirit, feels but little sympathy for a policy of masterly inactivity, or for the settlement of old feuds aiul prejudices, at the sacrifice of what they consider national honor. Of course the success of cither party so diametrically opposed in policy, must have a powerful tl,.,nt?m.l I 1_.: C WMVV. ??rv.. ..I?V| uui UilU I-Aicuiill ICiaiiWUS Ul the kingdom. If the Thiers party should,by chance, succeed in the election of a majority in the Chamber of Deputies, the present policy of the French government must be changed, and the preference now shown to the English, without regard to the American, interests will be reversed. In such a light, for selfish purposes, we might wish to see that party triumph ; but setting aside the pnrtiaular advantage which might accrue to our- | selves from such a result, the success of the Gui- , zot party will be more conducive to the preser- j vation of peace, and to the welfare of the world, j t han any overturning of the present organized ministry. In all probability tbe returns from the present elections will increase the power of the existing government, inasmuch as tho middle classes of France, who comprise the wealth, and consequently, command a prevailing influence, wil' rally to the s-ipport of that government, which secures them in the peaceful possession and accumulation of riches. In any event, the majority of the next French Chamber of Deputies will decide whether the peace of Europe is to be threatened,or the preser t pacific policy of Louis Philippe to be carried out far any length of time, so that the arrival of the next advices from the other side of the Atlantic, will be looked for with great interest by all who watch the peculiar workings of monarchical machinery. The politics of France and Ireland now absorb th e attention of the philosopher. The Watering Placks and thk Coot. Wea- ; ther.?'The recent touch of cool weathor haf ' made a very perceptible difference in the number of arrival* at th? hotels in this city. All the steamboats that reach here are freighted with | those migratory persons who Hock to the seashore and the watering places in the interior, to enjoy themselves during the hot months, and re- 1 turn to their homes in the cities at the first in.t;. cation of cold. If weather like what we now have, continue a few day^ longer, the watering places will he completely deserted, and we may ' look out for an influx of fashionables, who will make the fiity cent side of llroudway as jefulgent of beauty and satins as ever. This | will, of course, benefit the city?the theatres already feel its effects?and it will affect the hotels in the country; but the latter cannot complain, for although their season will be n month shorter than almost any previous one, they have done as much business as they ever did in any one season. There were upwurds of one hundred arrivals at the Astor Hotel yesterday morning before breakfast. Other hotels were equally crowded, and the Howard could not hold all that came. Hon. Louis McLa.ik.?We are informed that this gentleman will probably arrive in the Britannia steatner from Liverpool, which left there on the 19th mat., and will We due at Boston on Tues- | day or Wednesday next. The merchants have it in contemplation to tender him some appropriate mark of their estimation of hir valuable services in bringing about a settlement of the Oregon question. Steam Smr Great Britain.?This steam ship was te leave Liverpool yesterday lor New York. It is expected she will make the passage in twelve days or less!' She has the power to make a western passage in ten days.

That America is rapidly progressing in everything that is calculated to make her a great nation, is such a truism, that few think it now worth while to assert it, and yet the truth is every day forcing itself more and more prominently on the attention of the world. The inexhaustible mines of science are being industriously delved by our learned men, and every day some new gem is brought to light. Among the practical sciences, astronomy stands nArlioito : * ?-tL ?? ' rv..~|>i> ...viuur.1, aim wi- umii W1U1 grcui pirasure the vigorous cultivation of this ennobling science, now apparent in the United States. Observatories are springing up in every direction under the superintendence ofiearned men, and in the course of a few years, the grandest results may be expected. At Cincinnati, an observatory has been built on a large scale, and instruments, imported from Europe, have been put up, and are now in practical operation. At Amherst College an observatory is about being built, which is to cost Jive thousand dollars, and for which that sum is already pledget!. Georgetown College, in addition to many other rare appliances of science, possess-s a magnificent observatory, erected on i the highest portion of the beautiful grounds attached to that learned institution. There are also excellent observatories at Harvard and Yale Colleges, at West und at the High School, Philadelphia. Rut to crown nil, the national observutory at Wash ngton, under the euro of the present Secretary of the Navy, promises to lurnish from this time forward, an immense annual addition to our present stock of astronomical knowledge. When Mr. IJancrolt entered the navy department, he was determined, it is said, to muko the na< tional observatory one of the chief objects of his care, and notwithstanding that the opera- , ti?ns of our navy, consequent on the ex- j istence of war with Mexico, have in som^ degree retarded the prosecution of those measures, which he resolved to carry out lor the advancement of astronomical science?still amid the many perpltxing matters which have occupied his attention, he has, nevertheless, found time lately, we are told, to give instructions for a regular system of astronomical observations, to be carried out under the superintendence of Lieutenant Maury, a gentleman whose industry, zeal, and ability, in the prosecution of astronomical researches, and in the management of the observatory, have already elicited the warm approbation of scientific men in this country and in Europe. From instructions recently given by the Secretary of the Navy to Lieutenant Maury, and lately published in the iltrald, wo see that the latter gentleman is engaged in making a nau'ical almanac, a matter of the greatest importance, and promising the mo?t beneficial results. At the suggestion of Mr. Bancroft, Mr. Maury has concluded to devote himself exclusively to the cultivation of astronomical science, and from that gentleman's untiring assiduity and zeal in the prosecution of the study to which lie has devoted the best years ol his Life, we may anticipate the most brilliant results. The two most celebrated European catalogues of tlio stars, " BessePs Zone Observations," and " Struve's Catalogue of Double Stars," extend only to fifteen degrees south of the Equator. The Washington observatory, from its geographical position, can command a zone of fifteen degrees farther south, thus embracing a space of the heavens not within the ken of European observatories. Lieutenant Maury will have an opportunity of adding to the catalogue, all the stars within this space which he may observe. The instruments of the observatory are of excellent quality, but we must have still better. Why should not the government order the manufacture of a telescope equal to that of Lord Kosse, with which such wonders have already been wrought 1 The results of such a telescope brought to bear upon the new field open to our astronomers,are altogether incalculable. The possession of such an instrument, together with the advantages of our geographical position, would give our National ' Observatory, a pre-eminence over all others.? Will the Secretary of the Navy move in this mntter 1 The practical results flowing trom the possession of such an instrument, would Knunnil <lAC/>rintinn Vaiitinnl u.=v..rnvu Astronomy is not a thing of mere theoretical delight to the student. It is not only ?f immense practical advantage in all maritime affairs, but of absolute and exigent necessity. We trust that the present and all future Secretaries of the Navy, will put the National Observatory on such a solid footing as will conduce to the advancement of astronomical science, and at the same time reilect lasting credit on the nation. Movements among the Politicians.?There 1 appears to be a vast deal of trouble among the politicians in this city and State. The natives seem determined to keep up their separate orga1 nidation, and the anti-renters have announced a l State convention, to meet in Albany on the 6th of October, thus indicating independent action on their part. The national reformers and the abolitionists also hold conventions, for the nomination of candidates for the ofiice of governor, ; lieutenant governor, &c. &c. These movements weaken both the wliigs and : democrats, but the former to the greatest extent. The natives, anti-renters, abolitionists and reformers are, in their sentiments about one half whig?one quarter democratic, anil the other fourth just what you please. They will, therefore, injure the whig more than the democratic imrtv hv tlifir seimrnh* orimnization. Slioulil there be no arrangement made by the whigs, na. tives, anti-renters, &c., to act together in opposition to the democratic party, the latter will stand an excellent chance of success ; for, although the democrats are now split into two fragments, their principle of cohesion is so strong, that they wilj come forward and vote as one man when the day of election arrives. Their quarrels are always before and after elections, but never on the day se' apart for the reception of their votes. It is very probable that the whigs and natives, and perchance the anti-renters will unite ; the abolitionists will, as usual, act and vote independently, for it can scarcely be supposed that the four parties can agree upon one candidate for governor. Rut of this we shall see. , In the present confused state of things, no one can tell what the whig* will do. They hold their j convention in three or four weeks, and in that I time they may bo able to bring their ideas to a fo1 cus. No day has yet been set apart for the democratic convention. It will probably be put ofT to the latest moment, in <*fder to give the party I M^ui uui me one ierni principle to their heart's content. The natives have lost their gubernatorial candidate by declination, and tbey arc now engaged in hunting up : j nnother. Altogether, politics in this State are in a most interesting condition. Or* FoUKir.aCiRctn^ATio:*.?^We have been permitted to copy the following from a private letter I received in this city. It speaks for itself: U. 8 Ship Columbw, Boca Tigris, March ?, 1S4H " | "The ahip Helens arrived the other day from New York, having sailed from there the 4th of November.

P ark Theatre.?Mr. Collins, whose reputation as the best delineator of Irish character, that ever visited ] these shores, with the exception ef Tyrone Power, is now ; tolerably well established,received a benefit last evening at this theatre. To say that the houie waa crowded, j would not convey an adequate idea of the immense aa. 1 semblage of persons?it was a perfect jam; indeed, we may truly say, that we never saw a larger number aasembled within the four walls of this establishment on any previous occasion. It reminded us of the glorious days of Jack Reeve, or those of Mr. Collins' lamented j prototype, when every foot square, from the pit to the j roof was occupied. Such was the flattering compliment , paid to Mr. Collins on hit benefit night We aro happy in being able to Kay that this popular favorite has been ' re-engaged for three nights more, ami will appear every night this week, after which he will proceed to Philadelphia. to lultil an engagement in that city. Ho will appear this evening in his celebrated character of Pandeen O'Rafferty, in "Born to Oood Luck," Morgan Ratfc ler, in "How to Pay the Kent," and Terence O'Gradj^ in the "Irish Pott." Bowery Theater.?As large at this theatre it, it was hardly spacious enough to accommodate the crowds which thronged thore last evening. The enterprising liberality of the mannger has been appreciated by the public, who wo hope are in tome manner recompensing liiir for his exertions in their behalf. Mr. Walcott, as Mr. Oblivious Top in the "Turned Head," kept the house in a roar of laughter from the rising of the curtain to its fall, and was called out at the close of the piece Mr. i Chanfrau nightly increases in favor.and a( a gentlemanly actor, has few superiors. This evening Mr. Walcot takes his benefit, and appears on the Bowery boards for the last time this season Mrt. Titnm has volunteered her tervices. and will appear with Mr. Walcot in the comic opera of " Brother and Sitter " After which the popular burlesque tragedy of "Richard III. to Kill," writ ten by Mr W. and in which he Will give hit celebrated imitation of Mr. Templeton. The evening performances w ill conclude with the 1st and 3d arts of " Hnhnlipn " which has had such a auccessful run this season. We arc sure that those who have for so Ion); h period enjoyed the acting of Mr. Walcot, Will join this evening in giving him a farewell which will influence his remembrance , and pocket for many a future day. Greenwich Theatre.?Last evening wa* presented the laughable burletta called " The P. P. P.," which was received with much applause, in which Mr. Chapman's Gregory tho Lesser, Mr. H. Phillip*'* Gregory the Bigger, and Miss Julia Drake'* Fant-hetU, were admirably performed. " The King'* Wager" followed. It is a rew piece, and i* decidedly the best got up for the sea on, with a powerful and highly-talented caste. The scene is laid in the time of Chaile* II , displaying some* of the frivolities of that gay monarch with his courtiers Mr. Freer'* Charles II. was an admirable performance ; ami having heard him throughout the picce, we were truck with many of his points, which were delivered with great ability We observed a striking resemblance between hi* style and that of the popular J. R Scott. Mis* Craulord's Rosabelle was also performed with great power, and drew down bursts of applause, while the naive air and manner of Mis* Julia Drake, as Master Lilac Lovel, convulsed the house during the evening. Her acting of the part showed a true and correct conception Her personation ol Lilac Lovel was rich in the extreme?she is a "deserved tavorite. Mr* ^ Peiison's Master Chrystal Jovce also very well |>erformod ; and Mr. Chapman'* Sampson Tybbe was a rich ahd very racy performance, which kept the entire audience convulsed with laughter during the evening. Herbert Vane was also well sustained by Mr. Venue, and Mr. Phillips' Buckingham was n respectable piece of noting Altogether it has been the best gut up piece we have seen lor some time, and the entire company performed with a degree of ability that kept up the interest fully throughout. After which, the " Fireman's Daughter'' was repeated. Thii popular piece ha* nightly won upon the audience,>and Miss Craulord a* Kmmt. was repeatedly applauded throughout?and so was Mr. Freer as Heartly. Mr*. Monel make* a capital Mrs. Trenchham?a lady of the " upper ten thousand," addicted to fainting?and drove the audience nearly into a regular faint from laughter. She performed with much nui'cete The attraction* at Greenwich are becoming more powerful nightly, and the enterprising proprietor deserve* every encouragement for tire great treat afforded l.ut evening. CiiTLt OiRDr.^.?No city in the t'nion posses*e? a safoon so admirably adapted to the want* of the public, aa this excellent place of amusement. It it impossible to overrate its advantages; anil the many attraction* it )>o*. esses, should be enjoyed to be appreciated. The season will soon close, and we would advise our citizens to make the most of this excellent place of resort, as long as it is open to them. The orchestra is scarcely surpassed by any in the city, and the refreshments are of choice quality. Tom Klvn*.?Thi* remarkable genius appears to mor row evening at the Chatham Theatro, for the benefit of his wife. Mrs. Flynn will, of course, also appear. Those two will draw a full house. Mrs. F. is a highly popular and deserving actress, and as for Tom, he is rich ; every one is acquainted with him. M'llc. Blawov.?This beautiful danieun appear* again this evening in Giselle There i* a neatness and finish in her movements that are vory attractive.

Aim Streft Thkatre, Phii.adklphia.?This popular establishment, under the management of Mr. William E. Burton, opened for the season last evening. Mr. Burton is well known throughout the Union for being one of the most indefatigable managers?whose constant efforts are directed to promote a correct theatrical taste, by producing standard dramas and comedies in a manner peculiarly his own, and by employing a company that 1 for talent are unexcelled by any in the country. \V e trust that the season, just commenced, will be a profitable one to him, and we wish him the fullest success. Rockwi^.1. it Stock's Ciacirs.?This famous establishment is now making a triumphant tour in Canada West On the 3d, 4th and Mhof September next, it will perform at Buffalo; on the 7th at Lockport; at Medina on tho 8th; at Albion on the 9th; and will stop at tho towns between there and Auburn, where it will perform on the ]9th, 10th and 17th. The company belonging t? this establishment embraces many performers ot both sexes, whose reputation is of the highest order They draw crowds wherever they go. Minn. Philip Enm an.l H. A. Wollenhaupt, have como bark from a succenftil munical concert tour in the Eastern State*, an l art now in this city. Our eastern exchange* apeak in the moit gratifying manner of their performance*. The Tremont Vocalists are about to give a aeries of concerts in Buffclo. They have been well received on their visit to the westward. Miss Taylor meets with much commendation at Albany. _________ Gkneva, August 16th, 1846. State of the Cropi. Thinking that perhaps yon would like to know the state of the crops in this section, I take the liberty to inform you on that subject. In regard to the wheat, take it on an average, through Northern Illinois, it is but little more than halfa crop, in many instances wheat has shrunk to suoh an extent that it is not worth harveisting, and a great deal has been left "standing in the fields?in some instances farmers have offered one-half the crop for cutting it. There is a pretty good crop of oats, and corn bids fair to be pretty good. 1 learn also from persons driving cattle from the Wabaah river, Indiana, that wheat if very poor their, probably about half a crop. 1 also ajn inMKHiaMUNMIIh ' V Sporting Intelligence.

It would appear, as if the weather had actually been labering under a lit of fever and ague ; but any thing in preference to the lata warm and oppressive weather weuld be acceptable. Yesterday was wet and wlnterikh, and we had several specimens of rain in the course of the day. One specimen wm very rich. It canuot be described by our reporter. Wall ST*r*t.?Wc yesterday took occasion to notice the aliameful condition of Wall street, and the man ner in which the people who frenuent it are compelled to wade Vjpir way thrsugh the mud collected there. They wade through rascality enough without having to go knees deep through mud. Tha owners of some of the houses were yesterday compelled to employ persons to throw oft' the water from the passaga near their dwellings, to prevent their being inundated, and to keep the passage clear. The authorities and Street Inspector are bound to look to this disgraceful piece of abuse, and protect the property of those person* residing in this quarter of the city, as well the persons of those who have occasion to pass through. We trust the abuse will bo promptly remedied, and the mud, without the brokers, carted off. The Police.?We perceive that measures have been adopted to place the police at tho corners of certain streets?the great thoroughfares through which tho public principally pass?with a view to their protection and the proteotion of property. In no part of the city would such a person be more required, both night and day, than at the corner of Nassau and Fulton sts. We must he

an attractice set on this corner. The pickpocket here, in busy times, is always sure to ply his craft, and take advantage of every move on the pa-tof erowds who move continually through an 1 collect to read our bulletin. As a consequence, pocket books and kerchiefs, as well as nowspaperr very soonchange owners. The Kulton Kerrv, a stage omnibus, and general business, all have made this location a perfect thoroughfare, and thereiore the stationing of a police officer here would be very desirable, ami giTe him control over a large section of the city. We will kupply tho said officers with a Herald daily, at two cents ner conv. to keen him awake. Thb Stbecti.?Yesterday's rain made the streets as filthy as could well be imagined Broadway was a perfect sink; Bowery, Chatham square, and Wall street were equally bad, but have not yet sunk ; and the whole appearance of the city showed a pretty fair avidence of the total absence of any thing like order or cleanliness. When will we hare decent streets 7 When the cock crows. Cokvkistis* or Wurtm.?We yesterday noticed the meeting of weavers that took place at Tammany, with a view to adopt some steps in relation to the reduction ot wages by their employers. They again met yesterday, when the following resolutions were adopted unanimously : ? 1- Resolved, That this Convention consider the present attempt to reduce the pricei of carpet weaving unnecessary and unjust, seeing that the tariff (the declared cause of this attempt) does not come into operation tor three months; nor can we believe that its actual operation would justify this attempt. 9 llesolved, That knowing from experience that our present wages are no more than remunerative, and only sufficient to afford us a tolerable subsistence, we cannot admit the propriety of a reduction olour present prices. 3. Resolved. That the reduction of wages has never been a peimanent advantage to employers, tor, when tliey cannot obtain a sufficient price in the market, the just and proper remedy is to withhold the supply until tlie demand causes a return to remunerative prices. 4. Re>olved. That this Convention look upon the present proposal to reduce wages at ruinous, and that it is their dutj to resUt by every legal means the carrying into ctlert such a proposal An address to the employers was hereupon read and adopted; when it was resolved ta hold a conference with them, in order to make some satisfactory arrangement, in relation to employment for the ensuing season There appears to be a strong disposition on the part of the weavers, to enter into arrangements with the employers; but at the same time to keep their prices. Th?: Tbadfsmki* ok New Von*.?The anticipated operation of the tariff laws, has been pleaded as an excuse by several of the employers of the tradesmen of New York, for their having reduced or intended ti reduce, the wages of workmen. The Kail season is ap proaching, and there appears to be an unsettled state of things existing in relation to wages, growing out of the Esssage of the late taritf bill through Congress. We ave heard considerable murmuring amongst the hoot and shoe makers, tailors, and other trades, latterly on thin subject; nnd should tliu employer! generally resolve to cut down their prices, it will have a sad effect upon mechanic* in general, and he a regular iwindle. Meetings have already taken place, and are in contemplation on this subject, and we tru?t that something will be arranged satisfactorily, so as to uphold the mechanic. The talk of the tariff and its bad effects on trade ii all gammon, and used to cheat th? operative out of a portion of his wages. Book Sal*.?The sale yesterday at 204 Broadway was well attended, and passed off very spiritedly. Books brought a capital price.

The Convention then proceeded to the consideration of the report of the committee of the whole on the report of the committee on the judiciary. The first section was agreed to.

The iinanciul circles have been thrown into great confusion lately, owing to the disappearance ol" one of the leading men on 'Change, who has departed, ns it is supposed, where "the star of Umpire wendi it* way."

No man in the community, perhaps?, enjoyed a greater share of public confidence, and the came of his conduct is incomprehensible even to the most knowing ones?as the gentleman neither indulged in the intoxicating bowl, nor "stood the hazard of the die." His family are with you at present, I presume, as they went passengers in the ship Anson. Tho amount of liabilities left is variously estimated at from $69,000 to $150,000. Time will show, however, the correct figures. Mr. Lord, an old and respected inhabitant of ihe city, was buried yesterday. His death creates a vacancy in the Custom House here, for which there will doubtless be a horde of applicants. If Mr. Polk or Mr. Walker direct Mr. Grayson, tho Collector, to do justice in the premises, they will either re-instate Mr. Harvey, who was "reformed out of ollice" without cause, or give this permanent place to Captain William Povey, who was crippled in our naval service during the last war with Great Britain, and who at present merely holds a temporary Inspectorship, yielding, during the summer months, comparatively nothing wherewith to support a family. The newspapers here are but sorry representatives of public opinion, and hence you will find that they seldom or never notice things going on in their immediato vicinity, and tho only plan of finding them out is to look at the correspondence which is occasionally found in the Herald, and other independent journals. Our city election comes off in two or three weeks, but there is no excitement on the subject, and tho present incumbents will probably be reelected. The Congressional and State elections iUiiww, aiiu UUII1 upj/cojauuca, UUII^9 Will CUU" tinue as they have been?such matters being under the control of a clique, who, like Sir Oracle, I tell us, "when we speak, let no dcg<l>ark." There will be a pretty bru?li, however, for the Tax Collectorship, for which some halt dozen candidates are named. Col. Lance is most prominent among the "bo'-hoys," and there is every pros> pect of his electiqn. He is a perfect gentleman, and combines in an eminent degree, the "tuaviter in modo" with the " for titer in re." The Hon. Dixon H.Lewis,of Alabama, with his accomplished lady, (the sister of Col. Elmore, of this State,) passed through here yesterday en route for home, alter his arduous duties as chairman of the Finance Committee of the United States Senate. Great curiosity was manifested to see tho intellectual and bodily Alabama giant, but his stay was too short to afford the boys "a sight." He looked remarkably well. There is a great deal of sickness just now in the suburbs, and the " Natives" at work on the fortifications iu our harbor, are dying with a fever, something between the congestive and country type. The city proper, however, continues perfectly healthy. The weather is very warm, but the frequent showers that nightly visit us. serve to make the mornings and evenings tolerably pleasant. Accounts from-the interior represent the state ol the crops as remarkably Laclcward, owing to tliis stute of things, and the planters are grumbling exceedingly at the prospect of being short.
