[From the Mark Lane Express, August 17 ] The complaints respecting the potato crop have become so universal as to create considerable uneasiuess ; , tint11 ve v recently wc were disused to believe that the i mischief likely to result from the disease, which hps for j the second time attacked this crop, had been greatly ex- ' aggerated We were, therefore, induced to tako more than ordinary care in collecting informatiou on the sub- j ject and are sorry to say that the reports from corres- ; ( undents in whose statements we are hound to place the i fullest reliance are of a nature sufficiently alarming.? j That the disorder prevails eUensively all ever England, , Scotland, and Ireland, no longer admits of doubt and that its effects will be more severely felt than last year is nearl) as certain In the first place a less breadth of land whs planted than usual this spring, owing to the doiiMs reasonably entertained as to the policy ot putting much ground under thfl crop whilst the origin and nature of the disease of the previous season remained involved in mystery. The severe drought of May, June, and part of July, was certainly very unfavorable, inasmu h as moisture is highly needed by this plant during the summer tnou'bs ; and it is more than probable that the produce from this cause alono would have been very short, even if there had been no return of the blight, murrain, or whatever else the disorder in question maybe termed. Under thee circumstances a very material deficiency must, we fear, lie reckoned on ; and substitutes of tine sort or other will be required to an extent which is likely to iftct prices of almost all articles ?f food. Vn unusuxlly large consumption of wheat is. therefoic. likely to take place during the autumn and winter, an>l we much question whether the value thereof w ill long continue as low at it is at present. The wc ither has. during the week, been unsettled, and harvest operations havo been more or less, interrupted by the showers which have f.illen at intervals. Should that portion of the crop still out be secured in good order, the produce of wheat of t e Un ted Kingdom would, wc think, fall little, if any. shut of a full average ; but there is still a great deal in the fields north of the Humber, the quality of which stands in danger of being injured, unless the weather should become really tine. Some mischief has iilrehdv hem dune, the hnut mid moisture hnvinir m MTWImMKMimimj the corn to sprout in the ear ; these cases aie |?rliu|>i at present rare, there having been f ir lest rain in the north than in the south, where comparative!) little wheat is now abroad. The showers have, nevertheless, caused a feverish and uneasy feeling ; atid holders of wheat have ihotrn much less anxiet) to reali/e. whilst the inclination to get into stock has decidedly increased Hitherto no ver> great change lias occurred 111 prices, but the tendency has heen upwards at all the leading provincial markets held sluce our last. At Liveipool, on Tuesday, business was rather checked by the liigh pretentions ot sellers ; still a good many sales ol wheat were effected at an enhancement of ad to 3d per Td lbs on the curieney of thai day se'nuight, whilst American Hour moved off freely at an advance of r>d per hbl Later in the week the demand for both these articles was less active ; still the rise was well maintained on Friday. At the leading towns in Yorkshire, tolerable supplies ofulieuthave been brought forward, which has tended to prevent any material rite in quotations ; the turn Was, t'CVtrthefess, against the buyer both at Leeds and Hull on Tuesday, whilst at Wakefield on Friday the best qualities sold readily at an advancc of per qr on the i curmtf of that day se'nmght. In the western and northwestern parti of tho kingdom, the rise has heen more decided than at the places already referred From Birmingham we learn that old wheat found buyers on Thui?<lay at Js., and new at 3j per qr. more than nil that day se nnight. At liristol, the adranoe wa< neatly to tho same extent, as well as at several of the neighboring maikets. From the chief shipping ports on the cast coast, the accounts are of a similar n.ituro One ol the principal causes assigned by tellers for the firm tone they hate all at once assumed, is, that the yield of the wheat from the straw, what put to the teat o( thrashing, proves much below expectation. Many farmers express themselves greatly dissatisfied on this point, but too little is at pre?ent known to admit of a very accurate estimate ol the total production of the kingdom bein^ termed ; it may, however.be pretty safe1) concluded that the crop ot IH40 will not turn out so suj>erabiindant as was at once predicted. The fact that prices of wheat ure uctually lower in most ol the countries from which (ireat Bntain usually draws supplies when she requires foreign aid, than they are in Kngland, is also calculated to impart confidence to holder* of the article. Kiance, Belgium and Holland.?ff >id better markets at present than Kngland . and so long as this continues to be the case, slupmenta lroin the tialtic are not likely to be made to this country. We have, therefore, come to the conclusion that wheat it not to fall to auch I uinuuily low puces a* wi? at one tune anticipated U> our BdvicM fiom Scotland. we learn that the ome what firmer tone of the account) from the south, with the pread ol the |<otato <li*ea*e, hail caused bolder* of molt Kinds of Kiuiuto raise their pietension* , and at fcdinburgh, an well at tU Ulaago*. wheal, t>a le> and oat*, aa well as flour and meal, were held at enhanced term* on Wednesuay. Moat of our letteia from Ireland allude to the potato disease ; but quotation* ol wheai and oat* do uot ap|>*ar toliavfl been much eliectcd by the anticipated scarcity of the staple article ol lood to the poorer cla.aea '1 he arrivals ol wueat coastwue L'lto London have been very small, only 3rid& quarters having been rei?oi ted up to thi* (Saturday) evening The quantity exhibited at Mailt Lane by laud carriage samples Irom the home countiea has alao been scanty in the extreme ; indeed, the Kasex, Kent, and Suffolk a tan J a were nearly hare, both on Wednesday and Friday. The disposition to buy was certainly greater on the lint of theae day* than in the commencement of the week, though no ad vance could then be established. On Kriday, however, factois retuaed to accept lotmor rates, and the lew infiling baigaim closed wcie at pricea about I* per quarter above those of Uiat day se'nmght. The supeiior quality ol the new wheat hitherto brought forwaidh-is rendered the millers anxiouito secure a jKirtion, and it has consequently commanJed higher ratci than oil. The bait iun< ol red huve not been sul; t.elow 4-" or fin* white under 64s, whilst picked sampW* have brought J* per quarter over the?e term*, i he average pi ices, aie, ueveitlieless, low ; and it ii now certain that the duty will, in the courts ot a fortnight, rise to 10s per quarter, the maximum point under Mo existing law*. it is alread) Ms. having advanced a itepon I'liursday laat ; and nt thai o is a demand lor bouded wheat lor export, it if not likely that any which may yet retch u? tioin abroad will )? entered lor home consumption During the wi-ek several purchases of lock Wheat have been mad* lor *hip<nrm 10 France and Belgium, at prices relatively higher than could huve been oiitaineu lor similar qualities duty paid; am] tne quantity now in liond lieie i* quite uuioipottaiu Foreign heo wueat has likewise excited some attention , on Wednesday aeveral parcel* Changed hands at terms not previously ohtaiuaole, wuilst on Kiday hue D.uwig.

American Hour has been iu mthcr lively roquest, and tome important sales were made toward# tne Uo?e ot tba week ai ratos tid to 1* per barrel above tho?e current on .Monday.

The iraneaotions in molt bate likewue been on a restricted Hcule , and transactions have undergone no change requiring notice. The arrnalsoi oats irom our own coast and Hcotland have (wen trifling in the extreme ; and of the I qra. received Irom liwland. the greater portion came to hand previous to ,?ion?Jay, tiiougn not in ume to be included in laat week'* ll?t o( supplies. from atiroad the supplies hare aiao lallen oil', bui there is still some quantity on parage Irom Archangel Until Wednesday tne pilucipal dealers continueu 10 conduct their opelanona with extreme caution j suite iheh, however, the inclination to get into stock haa certainly iucreaae.1, and on huday ^ rather large puicuases were made, at pnoes OJ. to Is I III MM? par nr. above those current in tho commencement of the week F.nglish beam have become very scarce, the itocki of old having been reduced into a narrow compin, and no new having been brought forward The article ha*, consequently, been held with much firmneii, and former ratei have been well maintained Peaa hare alio come sparingly to hand ; and the recent advance has been firmly instated on. Some ?tir ii being made respecting the duties on thi* article and rye, which have, since the new corn law went into operation, been levied according to the averages of barley Thii. we think, could scarcely have been the intention of tho framers of the bill, as instates might easily occur that might render it advisable to admit one article at a low duty, whilst it might be equally desirable to have a higher rate imposed on another To put a case, we will suppose that the crop of barley ii abundant, whilst beans and peat are nearly a failure Would it, under such circumstances bo either fair or politic to discourage the importation of the Utter article*, though greatly wanted, because barley happened to be plentiful and cheap?? Such, however, would b? the working o; the existing scale. Krom the North of Europe the account* are of precisely the lamo character ui before, and scarcely anything appears to have been done in wheat at the leading ports in the Baltic. A letter from Danzig, of the 8th instant, inform: u? that rapid progress had been made in that neighborhood with the rye harvest, but that wheat cutting had not yet been commenced The weather wai then, and had tor some time been, very fine; and. though it was expccted that the yield i f rye would be rather light, no great deficiency was calculated on. Business had throughout the week been exceedingly dull, and, with the excep tion of a purchase of 260 lasts of inferior wheat at 34s to 36s per qr , on Dutch account, little or nothing had been , done for export. From the lower ports the advices are of evea less interest; indeed quotations of wheat at Rostock, Stettin, ice., have for weeks past been little better than nominal; nor will the value of the article meet its level until the harvest shall have been completed and supplies begin to bo brought forward by the farmers, By the most recent accounts it ttppear* that 43s to 44s per qr , free on b?ard, continued to be still asked at the ports name < for the best red wheat, being fully as much as it would be worth in bond at Mark Lane. At Hamburg, on Tuesday last, wheat was in fair request for shipment to France The sales made since the previous post-day had amounted to 1,600 qrs ; and equaJ to 44s per qr free on board had been paid for really fine parcels of red, weighing 63lbs per bush Prices of spring com had been well supported, equal to '24s 3.1 having been paid for SOibs Saale barley, and 30s 3d for white peas Of oats und beans sea cely any had been offered for sale. The accounts from Holland aii'l Belgium are not of much intorest this week, the inquiry for wheat having become rather slow as well at Rotterdam as at Antwerp. In the Mediterranean prices of wheat are even higher than in the Baltic; and so far from supplies being likely to reach us from thence, there is a strong probability of some of our bonded wheat being shipped to that quarter.

The following are the latest quotations Consols for monoy closed at ; for tho Account, at 9b\ ; Bank Stock, at 309 to 210 ; Three per Cents Ileduced, at 96 ; Threeand-a-Quarter ner Cents, at ?T\'; Long Annuities, at 10 6-16 ; and Exchequer Bills, Hs to !3s. pm.

Livrarooi. Cotton Market?Wici Ekdimo August 7th.? We continue to have a fair steady demand for nearly every description of Cotton ; and this has so far relieved the market as to give our currency rather an upward tendency. The advance in price, however, ii to much checked by the depres cd state of thing* in Manchester, together with a failure there in the varn trade, that the actual quotable advance is very alight?say Jfd per It), within the last fortnight. Some rumors are afloat about turns-out and working ahort time ; but hitherto nothing has actually been determined upon, nor is it possible that such a course will immediately be adopted to any material extent. It is not, however, in our opinion, a matter entirely out of the question. Were the stato of the consumption in a satisfactory and prosperous condition, we make no doubt that it would be instantly seen in our increased activity and somewhat advanced rates. 3,800 American and 200 Surats, have been taken on speculation ; and 3,640 American, 670 Pernams, 100 Laguayra, and 100 Surats, for export. 8ales to day, 7,000 bn^s. Wrxx F.idinq August 14 -The quotations of Cotton remain as last week, but we have barely maintained oor ground for the middling qualities of American. In many instances we know that Dullness has been done at the full rates of previous sales, but on an average of the transactions the dulness of the market lias given the turn i in favor of the buyer. This state of feeling and tenden1 cy of our currency ha* been owing chiefly to the dull and discouraging accounts from Manchester. No doubt the apprehension of mouey want* for railway purposes has checked the enterprise of speculators, as well as urged upon the market property which, under other circumstances, would have lain over undistmbe 1. Altogether we have pasted rather a dull week. From the United States we have a confirmation of previous re| ports, namely, that the crop now on the ground is likely to p'ove a moderate one, and under any circumstances must be late in its gathering. 1500 American, and l.Ot'O Surats have been taken on speculation, and 3,360 American and 360 Surats for export. The sales to-day 4,000 bales. The sales for the week amount to 2d.830 bales. Auofst 15th, 17th and luth?The sales since the 14th instant amount to about 14 000 bales, at the tame rates as were then current, but upon the whole the market has assumed a firmer aspect. To-day (Aug 18,) there was a pretty fair demand, both sjieculators and tha trade taking a part. In prices, of the general disposition of the market, there is no change to report; but neither the business of yesterday nor today seem sufficient to retrieve us from some appearance of dullness. The aales to-day are estimated at 6,01)0 bales, of which speculators have taken 700 American, and exporters 500 balos ; 1,00) Brazils, consisting of BOO Dahia, at 6d to 6\'d, and 100 Ternam at 6??d to 6.V' have been taken for ttie trado, the market closing steadily. Loudo* Mahkkts, August 18?Cotton?Since last report the demand has been rather dull, and at the same time prices have been supported. Importers look with confidence for better price*. The sales for the week, ending August 14th, were 1,390 bales, namely, 870 Surat at to 3?i'd, and Madrks 3%d to 3%d. The sales on the 18th instant were 60l) bales, at very lull rates.

Hat be,?A ufa at 7th.?Cotton*?During the pait week our market has been distinguished by a good degree or activity compared with what had previously taken place; after the celebration of the July anniversary, business, which had been partially interrupted, began to exhibit ymptom* of rental, and the excitement produced by the election* hiring also died away, things have njw resumed their u*ual eourse. Since our preceding report, therefore, the tMWMCtioni have been of a much more extenaive and regular character, the demand from the trade ha- been daily toa fair amount,and-buyers for tranait have alio taken a goed ihare in the operation*. The intelligence from the Manufacturing district* continues satiafactory, and, coaaled with the favorable impression produced by the advieea from the United State* of 16th ult, received by the Britannia iteamer, have restored confidence generally, and imparted Brunei* to price* which had before begun to wear a drooping aspect It muit be observed that our pre tent price current being eitabliahed according to the new classification* alluded to in our previous report, the price* have teen reduced in the tame ratio, and will therefore appear lower without being really so; bnt as this change might g've rise to erroneous snppoeitiens, if not explained, we have deemed it neceasarv to state the fact, in order to prevent any misunderstanding. August IS.?The situation of our market ha* beenle** encouraging within the last week. .The firm attitude evin ced by holders, has been auzceeded by a considerable de greeof pressure to realise, and their readiness to meet the view* of buyers ha*been the only means of inducing them to come forward with less reluctance than would have occasionally ben to a pood extent, and upon the whole to fair amount,there nai been no fpirit displayed in the transactiona, wfeich have been merely to supply consumption. 1 he Closes for the present unwholaaoine tate ?f the market, will be found in the eagerness of importeri to run offatook. owing to the lateness ef the teason, and the large arrivals that have taken place within the last few days, which, coupled with the unlavorable ! character of the intelligence from England, have created a slight depreciation in prices, and led to a decline of about If. on all Aatrican cottons. We are without any advices from the United States since those of the 16th ult. received by the packet ship Havre, from New York, which being only one day subsequent to the accounts already In our poaaession, were unimportant, and therefore productive of no new feature in business P. 8.? Since writing Ike above, we have been put in possession of New York dates to 31st ult. by the Cambria steamer, and our market*has become very animated; about 3000 bales have changed hands, and prices have recovered from their drooping state.

The maiket for cotton fabrics has assumed a moro unfavorable appearance since our issue of the 2nd instant. Another failure in the Bazaar has added to the general uisirusi, huu uujers anuw ^ivui unwillingness 10 onier into engagements at almoit any price. The only class of purchasers who Bhow any inclination to do business are the local dealers, who, tempted by low prices, and anticipating a better inquiry in a month or so, have taken to moderate extent of such articles as they can retail without dittiiflty. Grey shirtings, grey jaconets, and white jaconets htfVo thus boen placed, prices in most instances showing a decline, but with so unsettled a bazaar it is difficult to give any quotation.

Owing to her toucliing bottom . ob Newfoundiard she is to go into dock for exam- j ination. She will not, therefore, leave Liverpool till the 22d insr. The Cambria will be the next steamer due.? ' one was to have left Liverpool yesterday. The Foreign New*.?It* Political and Commenial Wiaractsr. By the arrival of the steamship Britannia, at j Boston, l'rom Liverpool, we have advices from ! all parts of Europe fifteen days later than those received by the Caledonia. Politically, the news possesses very little importance ; commercially, it is favorable : and that is all. The crops are likely to be full an average, i and the corn markets were in a very satisfactory condition. There had been a very fair busiuess ; | done in cotton, at improving prices, and there ; were indications ol a further improvement, both ! in the demand and in qualities. As the accounts ' from tkis side, in relation to the crop which has now reached market and that now on the ground : I reach England, there will be, without doubt, a ' I speculative movement to some extent in the arti- j cle. As the deficiency this year has been so \ great, and that next season bids fair to be much j greater, their cannot but be an attempt made, [ particularly in the principal markets of Great Britain, among speculators, to avail themselves > of the state of things, to create as great a monopoly as possible. The consumption this | | year will be large, reaching the regular in- ! nrpfldo nnri tKo Hmrianfl urill tliPr^lnro Kn 1arcr#>r ! in proportion to the supply than has been expe1 rienced for years. According to the estimated per { cent increase in the growth of this staple, the crop should this year?that is the receipts from September 1st, 1846, to September 1st, 1847?be nearer three millions of bales than two millions ; instead of which, the yield will not, according to present appearances, reach two millions of bales. In view of these facts, we cannot resist the conclusion, but that holders nnd growers of cotton will, within the next twelve months realize better prices for the raw material than has been known i for the past five years. The money markets of Europe were, at the latest dates, in a very easy condition. Capital was plenty enough for all legitimate commercial purposes, but fears were entertained in Great Britain that the railway mania would lead to a derangement of the currency of the country, and I to much difficulty and embarrassment in the < financial world. The State Convention.?The I*kooress of Labor.?This body has, appears, agreed by resolution, to adjourn on the 6th day ot October next, by which time they will have been in session four full months, at an expense to the State ol many thousand dollars more than was necessary. We say necessary, because a great deal of time has been expended in debating upon, refering, and reporting upon matters which the majority of the members knew could not be finally acted upon. What a contrast wo have between the Convention of professional men, mostly assembled for the purpose of remodelling the Constitution and the convention of the State of Iowa, whose duty it was to form an entirely new con stitution for that new State. The first takes four months, and the latter only thirte?n days. It was not until lately, however, that ourconvention made much progressin performing the task tliattheywere elected to perform, and then they went to work cutting and slashing in all directions. After a comparatively short debate, some seven or eight hundred offices wera abolished by the besom of reform. All the inspectors of hay, lime, pork, &c. (See., were swept away by a single resolution not over ten lines in length. This was, undoubtedly, a capital movement, and one that will receive the approbation of the people. Masters and examiners in chancery have likewise been abolished, and the profession of the law annihilated. We are disposed to believe that this last measure is too violent, but it is in consonance with the hostile spirit that has been manifested in this State for years past towards the legal profession. This spirit of hostility has been manifested repeatedly in the Legislature, and on every opportu mty it nas Deen ina ligeu in. J. nus, at one time,we have seen the fee-bill clipned, and reduced every successive winter,until it has been reduced so low as to be far from remunerating. At another time, we have seen resolutions introduced throwing open the profession to all persons who on examination should be found qualified. The carrying of this last measure was, how?"*3r, reserved for the 1 Cenvention, which has consigned the profession to the same fate that was meted out to the feebiU. They are both gone. Peace to their manes. Other measures have been passed upon by the Convention within a short time, among which the aboli ion of the Courts of Errors and Chan, eery is the first in importance and interest, and the establishing in lieu thereof of a Supreme Court, vested with jurisdiction in b?th law and equity. This court will consist of thirtytwo Judges?four to each Senate District, and will be the highest court in the State, except the proposed court of appeals, which will be composed of eight judges, four ol whom will be electi ed by the people, and the other four will consist ' nfSur>r?me court incites. whos? tr>rm nf nfllrn ? ) such judges will have expired. Such is tlie pro; posed reform in the judiciary, a matter which has t taken more time, and been the sul jeot of more de1 bate, than all the other measures combined, i There is one matter, however, which has as 1 yet escaped the notice of too Convention, and which we hopo will not be overlooked?that is the , total repeal of the usury laws. This is a measure which the people expect and the business of the country requires. There is no earthly reason | that money should not, like every thing else, have i a market value according to its abundance or scarcity, and any attempt on the part of the legislature to fix a value upon it is ridiculous. At one time it may be worth only 3 per cent a year, and another it may he worth ten, fifteen, or perhaps twenty. The usury laws that now exist are only resorted to by rogues and other unprincipled men. No honest man will object to repay a loan of money because he agreed to give more interest than the law tolerates. If it were not worth more to him at the time he borrowed it than the legal interest, he would net have borrowed it, r except with the view of cheating the lender by I tak>ng advantage of the law. We hope and trust the Convention will not adjourn as long as these laws remain unrepealed. | M*. Buchanan.? The Hon. James Buchanan, Secretary of State of the United States, passed tfirough this city yesterday, tn route for Saratoga, where he is to remain for a ween or ten days. t ' > Jkrsey CrtY Fk**y.?We believe the Common Council will assemble again next Tuesday evening. We hope that Assistant Alderman Smith will not forget to urge upon the Common Council the impropriety of renewing the lease to the Jersey City Company, except on such conditions as will be satisfactory to the public. By the old lease, his Company was bound to run a boat every ten minutes. Instead ol, however, following their agreement, they run but one boat every quarter of an hour during the day?every half hour during the evening, and none from twelve o'clock at night (latterly from 1 A. M.) until morning, and then a boat every half hour. This lerry is lookod upon as a monopoly and they think from their wealth, that they are beyond the reach o( public opinion. The rent which they have heretofore paid for the exclusive use of the slip foot of Courtlandt street, is entirely too small, and ought to be increased to the same amount that is paid by the Fulton Ferry Company. They are abundantly able to pay it, for they assume to own all the wa. ter rights adjacent to Jersey City, and therefore pay no rent on that side of the river. At all events, the people must be better aecommodated than heretofore. The State of New Jersey and the city of Philadelphia, to a great extent, are tributary to this company, and swell its receipts so much that not a share of the stock is in the market. Thk Ockan Hack.?The great, the stupendous race over the Adantic course, always heavy, because very wet, between the Cambria and Great Britain, has resulted in the defeat of the latter. The time and speed can be summed up ija the following way:? Ob bat Bbitai*.?Passage IS day* 8 hours ; detention, 18 hours. Difference in diitance 80 hours. Time, compared with Cambria's, 11 day* aud 8 hour* Cambria.?Time from Boston to Liv?rpool,Tia Halifax, 10 day*, 8 hour*. This gives a difference of twenty-four hours in favor of the Cambria. But it is our honest ODin ion that the Great Briiain is the fastest steamer. Take the two vessels, trim them alike, have their machinery in perfect order, and start them to. gether from the same pier, and we believe that the Cambria wou.d be beaten. But why race 1 The Cambria, the Great Britain, the Atlantic, the Oregon, are certainly last enough for all useful purposes. The spirit of tho age, however, urges them on. The Foreign News and the Express Lines.? We were indebted to Gay Ji Co., Adams & Co., and Harnden & Co., for the early delivery of oar parcels yesterday morning, These express lines are of great value to the community. What should we do without them 1 Theatricals, Ac. Pars Thiitei.-Last evening Mr. and Mrs. Kean appeared as Jaques and Rosalind in Shakspe are's comedy of "As You Like It." The play was finely cast and admirably played. Of Mrs. Kean's Rosalind we scarcely know how to speak in terms sufficiently laudatory.. It was full of sparkling wit, grace, and a charming ttpU \ glerie that forms the very essence of the part Jsques, although not a prominent part, yet in the h??<is of Mr. j Kean wss made both graceful and effective. There may be othors who do it as well, bat w* have never seen them. Barry as Old Adam, was, Ju what we con rider, his best part. His acting received marked aad well deserved applause. Dyott as Orlando, Bass as Touchstone, Fisher as WiUiam, and Mrs. Vernon as Audrey, were all equally good Some of the songs and chorusses were not as good as they might be, but the excellence ef the acting made op amply for anv deficiency in this respect. This evening. "Twellth Night," Mr. Kean as th? Duke, and Mr* Kent) n* Viola ; the other character*, cast to the strength of the company. To conclude with the farce of "Advice Gratia." Bowert Theatre.?" Fazio," last ni?ht, afforded Miss Julia Dean an opportunity to display her rare acquirements to the belt advantage; she threw the whole weight of a cultivated mind into the part of Bianca. and was as successful as her most sanguine friends could have wish ed. It is scarcely possible to conceive a situation mora truly wretched and heart-rending than the Italian wife entail* upon herself by denouncing the husband of her * bocom. accusing him of crime in a fit of jealonsy. Of Miss Dean's performance of this very difficult task, we can only say in one word, it was excellent Mr. Neafie. in Fazio, we thought rather too noisy. The tragedv was followed by a well acted petite comedy with the title of the " Double Bedded Room,,' in which Hadaway, Wemyss. Collins, Brooke. Mrs. Madison and Mrs. Booth succeeded in keeping the aadience In a perfect r?ar of laughter, from tlie commencement to the close of the piece This will bear repetition. Greenwich Theatre.?We never saw an audience KAttAr aaticfi?f) than WAm thn rmtrnna nf tha Or?Anwii*h Theatre, last evening, with the performance*. This place of amusement is now established on a first and lasting basis, and bids fair to have a long and prosperous career, under the able management of Mr. Freer. The performances last evening were loudly applauded by a large and respectable audience, who appeared delighted with the acting of Mr. Freer, Mrs. Jones and the rest of the talented company. The bill for this evening is " PI* arro," and the " Honey Moon." Castle OAaociT.?The buffo troupe of Ethiopian Mini itrels have been received with rreat applause at this pleasing place of retort, and they will oootinue their en tertainments throughout the week. Between the first and second part of their performance, an opportunity is afforded the audience to view the range of cosmoramas which vividly portray scenes from all parts of the world. 1 he dissolving views at the close of the evening, and the Chinese fi<eworks, are of themselves weith much more than the price of admission Sights for the eye, j music lor the ear. refreshments comporting to the inner man, are some of the inducements to our citizens and strangers to p*?s an evening at this cool retreat and we hope the managers will reap a golden harvest from the seeds of their liberality. Madam* Auuusta.? This charming dantentt was to have come out in the Britannia * but was obliged to delay her departure in consequence of her failing to procure a good second Her corpt dr. ballet is almost complete, and she intended to have come out in the Oreat Britain.

Madame Augusta probably took pansago in the steamer that left Liverpool yesterday, and may the re to re be expected here in a fortnight She is to appear at the City Intelligence. Accident to the Steams* Trot.? As the steamboat Troy wa? approaching Milton, four miles below rough* keepiie, on her trip trom Albany to this city yesterday, crank pin and connecting rod broke, in consequence of which the pi-ton knocked out tha rend and l>ottoni ul the cylinder, thereby crippling the (peed ot the boat, sc that she did not arrive here until about seven o'clock la*t evening when she w? taken round to Secot's esU lilishments for repairi In the meantime her place will l>e kupplied by the North America City tuiiv<n.lun.
