A. NEW YORK HERALD. York, Monilny, Sr|>ti mini 7, IN4M. The Pnraun C&|Milltlon. We give on the outside of to day's paper a spi* j rited sketch, taken by an eye-witness, of the appewrnnc' of the fleet of merchantmen, under convoy of a French and English squadron, when pawing the batteries of the Buenos Ayreans at St. Lorenzo. Tha batteries on the north side were under command of the brave General Murcella, while op[>ov?d to him were the broad* des of the com bined men ot'-war, and a continual discharge of congreve rockets Irom the islanu on which the English threw up a slight fortification. The con. voy, the account of whose pwsage we have | hitherto given, composed of vessels of all nations, lost three vessels, which ran aground and were burnt. The papers from Buenos Ayres stu'c 'hat the lo's of the allies, in killed alone, must have been from 3<l to 50 men, and property destroyed to the amount of ?190,000; while the English state that but one man was killed, and three vessels lost. The correct account is probably between the two. Throughout the whole cor.llict, this Argentine forces displayed a courage which all the strength of England and France never could subdue?a courage arising from feelings of resistance to aggression and delence of home. Our Dlrxlcnn Hi latlnim? IllglUy Favorable Prospects uf Ptai e?\\ hat Is Trump ' The intelligence from Mexico and from the seat of military operations, has not been unex. pected here. For some time, we have been waiting impatien'ly for news from the 1'acirtc squadron, which had learned of the actual existence of hostilities, and was known to have ample strength to make a powerful diversion in ttint quarter. Although what has been accomplished had reached us through the very imperfect medium of Mexico herself, little doubt can be entertained that our naval force is in possession of the principal ports in California. The operations of the army extending from the mouth of the Rio del Norte, where General T ivlor has an available force of at least 18,000 men?the movements of General Wool at the h ?ad of about 7000, and of General Kearney with fx)00 more, as-ailing Mexico, and penetrating her territory in combination, upon a line of 2000 miles, aided by our naval forces on both oceans, would be sufficient even undt/r ordinary circumstances, to place her in a state of extreme jeopardy. Distracted however, as she is, and has been, it is impracticable for her to continue the unequal contest, without the certainty of enormous loss. Whatever portion of her territory our troops may occupy, it will be impossible for her to dispossess us from. At this juncture Sant* Anna arrives?a new re volution occurs. The troop* raised by Paredes to make a ->how of resistance are detained in the capitol, and our different armies move on unim- i peded in their operations. Even if Santa Anna was disposed to carry on the losing game which such a state ol affairs must make the war in which he is involved, the onward move of the j troops of the United States, will find him, when ; he is ready for action, stripped of all the frontier provinces. They are probably by this time held ' by our armies. 10very consideration of policy? every prospect of consolidating his own power at j home, will incline him t? peace. It is moreover pretty clear that his entry into ! Mexico, has been with the connivance and underttauduigof our government. The circumstances of his sailing in an open manner,without disguise-- | his arrival there at the very moment he was expected?the letter which lie is said to have carried from our consul at Havana to Com. Conner?the mission of Slidell Mackenzie, brother ol the ex-mi n *ter to Mexico?the sending the Mississippi from b Tore Vera Cruz the voryday he w is expected? the permitting the ;<teainboat which carried him to enter without even the attempt to capture him, all indicate the existence of such an understanding. What then is the prospect of peace? The intelligent portion of our community, looking to all thefe fac'*, consider it nearly certain that peace will be concluded belore the lapse of many weeks. It is also confidently believed that the [ terms of the treaty to which Santa Anna consented in 1843, will constitute the basis of the arrangement. That it will be further provided that the American troops will retain possession of all the j Mexican territory which may be in their occupin : cy when the treaty is made, as security for the performance of its stipulation ; that when tlie amount of the claims of our citizens shall be ad- : justicated, the payment of them will be assumed by the United States, who will then receive a eession of so much of the conquered territory as may be found necessary for her indemnification, j But, while all these opinions and facts are float- | nig uruuiKi, vienerui layior may ue lighting a 1 desperate battle at Monterey. imm to Kkpoeters.?Why will not those | < who get up public meetings provide suitable ac- , com mod at ion for reporters ! People wish to see 1 their names in print, and to have their speeches 1 reported at full length, and the public are desirous t < of having a full and graphic report of such pro- '] ceedings. But no accommodations are ever pro- | i vided, and the repotters are left to do as they best can, and are expected to take full notes whilst they are jostled about, surrounded by the turmoil and confusion incidental to such occasions. A reporter goes to a public meeting and he scrambles through a crowd all eager, one to get before the other. He pushes his way to the platform, tries to secure a seat, and to be somewhere neur il lii/liL. II'he mhv.'.w! lie is xtill aitKw>r?t t? the annoyance of bein? pushed about, leaned over, and squeezed lo a jelly. Should it happen to be warm weather he stands a chance of being | dissolved into a state of absolute and entire liqui> ; day. His arms are not allowed free use, and he often finds the few deal boards promoted for the } occasion to the office of desk, occupied as a seat by those in front, and not unfrequenUy carried j away altogether in a skirmish;?and notwith- j standing all these inconvenienciea a reporter is ! expected to take full, accurate and minute notes, i The thing is preposterous. Those who get up I public meetings should make it an object of espe- ' cial care that sufficient accommodations are se- \ cured to the corps of repotters. We always ser.d an able body ol reporters to very public meeting of importance. We can i ive fall and accurate reports, and notwithstanding the many disadvantages and inconveniencies, which we have mentioned, we do give better and abler reports of public meetings, fcc., than any j other paper in the Union. But we can do even better if only common fair play be shown to our reporters. We, thcrelore, request those who get up public meetings, to set apart a place which shall be occupied by reporters alone. Let men be appointed to sccurc them against interruption or interference. The effect of such nil arrangement will l>e, to give the public a full and complotc acquaintance with everything that occurs at public meeting*, and 'hose who take part in such meetings will have the satisfaction of fiudiug them- I selves truly and accurately reported. Coitrt or General Sessions ?The September term of this court commences this forenoon. Owing to the long interval which has elapsed since the close of the last term, the nsmber of prison cases requiring adjudication will doubtless be found to be unusually large; which, together with those wherein the parties accused have lioen admitted toba,!, wtll keep the court closely 1 fudged until the exjnration of the i?rm. | The I)?.uu.s of Dutisovishkd Citizens.?It appeurs to us as though we had recorded the demise of more old and distinguished citizens during the past summer, than ever before in the same length of time. The following list comprises those we can now call to mind. N. L Gejswold, E*q., of the firm of N. L aiw G. Griswotd, one of the olile?t merchants of the city. The house in which he was the senior partner having existed more then forty years, pasting safely through nil changes, of a or commercial character, which have been experienced witlnnihat period Mr. Griswold, through life, enj >yt d the reputation of an upright merchant, and a philanthropist to the fullest extent of the term.

Geo P Siiii'man, of the firm of Shipman, Ayrett & Co , one of the oldest and heavies' houses in Wall street. Mr Shipman had been a member of tlie upper board of brokers from its establishment, aud through nil the vicissitudes ol the mm-*, ami iioiwiwisutniling lue neavy losses which repeatedly fell upon his firm, he maintained a character for strict integrity and honesty of purpose, of the highest order. Wm O'Brien, whose demise we announced on Tuesday last, at a very advanced age, was the oldest broker for the adjustment of marine losses in the city, lie has been engaged for nearly half t century exclusively in this branch of business. It is a pursuit of peculiar character, requiring an intimate knowledge of commercial law, and the usages and customs of dilferent countries in the adjustment of a marine loss often interests a great nunibei of persons An established broker, from | his long experience, is a sort of arbitrator, to iuake up a statement of such portions of the loss as shall fall on the Insurance; and Insured Companies. Individuals and courts, in case of litiga tion, rely greatly on the broker's estimates. None are ever engaged, and none can find employment in this branch of business, except men of sterling integrity. Mr. O'Brien was a man who held his position with great fidelity, and his estimates have been confided in svith great con imcucu we uvmi ly un uiu as{e, aim was always greatly respected by all who knew him. Walter Bowse, formerly Mayor of this city, having been appointed in 1H2JS by the Common Council, He had also fit led other offices of honor and trust in several important institutions of the city, and was a man almost universally rc. spected. There are many others, equally distinguished for their many virtues.

The saloon and state rooms would not disgrace the palace of an Eastern monarch; such a profusion of gilding, of mirrors, of costly upholstery, and luxurious magnificence do they exhibit in every particular, and in all the datails of their construction. Of the Atlantic, a pri- j vaie letter speaks as follows :? . . ? \ye |1(tl] *nn fhine. sun-?et, anil moon shine while on hoard the Atlantic.

Tucker, No. 4A4 Broadway. It appears that these sporting men stepped down to take ? dunk, and by way of amutement smashed a couple of tumblers. They then took another drink, and Phelan threw down a $3 bill on the Cumberland batik, which note Mr. Tucker refused to take, from the fact of its being a bad bill. Phelan denied having tendered such a bill, stating positively that it was a %l> lull he offered, and the accused party being romewhat, in liquor? Mr. Tucker requested them to leave the housewhich they utterly refusi-d to do, abusing and threatening violence to Mr. Tucker, who feeling himself in bodi* ly danger, sent lor the assistanco of the above otHcers, who conducted tliem all to the Station House, where they were locked up until morning aud Mr Tucker appearing before Justice Drinker, made the above complaint and the patties wetc held to bail in $500 to answer at court Grorgr C King.?The council for this man procured a writ oi Sabrai coipus on Saturday, directing his api??arancc before Judge Kdmunds; ? hereupon,alter a hearing, the Judge admitted him to bail in Ihe sum ol $3,000, on a criminal charge against him.

Locked up for trial. Extensive Foboerv.?A lew days since one of our largest brokers was swindled out of $2,500, under the following circumstances:?A person of good address, and very genteel appearance, called upon and introduced himself by means of a letter of credit, purporting to have been written by very respectable firm ii the K.ast to a merchant of this city. The letter spoke in ter> commendable terms of the hearer, and introduced him as a speculator of high standing, who had visitedthe West for the purpose of purchasing wheat. Shortly alter his appearance he informed hi< new acquaintance that in order to make the purchases he intended it would be necessary for him to cash a certificate of deposit which lie held for JA.OOO sgamst the Dank of IHica, N.

Camillo Siroai.?This great artist, who is now on his ! way to this country, is the only pupil of Paganini, and is | said to be the most worthy successor to that great violin- ' ist. Sivori is a native of Genoa, his father being a , wnnhhr mprrhant of that It ii mid tint hn liAtravpti I even in his infancy an extraordinary passion for the instrument on which he excels, and that he could, at four years of age. play a great many airs. At six years of age, Paganini, having heard him play, advised his father to have the child in-tructed, and. the father consenting, the great violinist took him under his own tuition. He was afterwards under the tuition of Costa, who had instructed Pagamni, and of Dellepiane. the intimato friend of the latter. At ten years of age he gave concerts in all the principal cities ot K.urnpe, but lie did not, like too many of those unfortunates who are known as precocious children, content himself with what he lind learned, and with the fame he had acouired, hut after giving a series ef concerts, he would return to study, and remain buried ; for nine mouths together from the gaze of the world, pererting his powers, Hnd preparing to give the world proof >f the excellence ofhis teaching Shortly before Paganlini's death, Sivori induced his father to oiler the great Maestro any price for one of his violins Paganini's reily was : " 1 will not sell you the violin, but will present it to you in compliment to your high talents." Sivori travelled to Nice to receive the violin from the liand* of his great preceptor. Pnganini having heard the young man play, complimented him ou his proficiency, and advised him to go to Paris. This adviee ne followed after first visiting the Russian and German cities. At Paris the most flattering marks of attention were paid him. The press was loud and enthusiastic in his praise, and the respect paid to his genius was fcarcely inferior to that paid to Paginini himself in his lifotime. He visited London, Dublin, Cork, Liverpool, and other cities of (treat Britain and Ireland, and was everywhere received with unbounded enthusiasm. As an instrumentalist. Sivori is said to be most extraordinary, and the possession of the favorite violin of Paganiui, gives him. no doubt, great advantage in this respect, indenendeut of his own natural nownrs. Rut thn innl and sentiment that he infuses into his music is the greatest characteristic of his wonderful genius, tie comes amongst us, acknowledged by the critics of all the princi|?al European opera cities, as the greatest living violinist, and as the direct and true successor to the mantle of Paganini. We have no doubt that ho will realise amongst us, those hopes nnd expectations raised in the musical community of this country, by the endorsement which his genius has received from the voice of all Europe lie will arrive by the Great Western. Novcl Concert.?A day or two ago wc referred to the wonderful musical performers, Masters Bullock and Cole, and expressed an opinion of their ability as exhibited in their rehearsal at the Apollo Rooms. Since then, in conversation with several of the most distinguished musical professors in this city, we find that there is but one opinion of their merits. They expressed themselves amazed and delighted with the proficiency of these youths, who. from their age, could hardly have been exacted to have conquered the rudiments of their profession?and, indeed, their performances on the violin, viola, violoncello and piano, surpass all description, not onlv by their scientific accuracy, but by the tuneful melody with which they are inspired. A concert will be given by them to-morrow evening, at the Apollo Rooms, and our citizens, our " upper tens," who pour out their money freely at the foot of foreign talent, have now an opi>ortunity of encouraging and supporting 11a live genius in its laudable attempt. The object of these children is not prematurely to come before tho puUlic as professed musicians, but to exhibit such gifts as the) have, and make this their appeal to the New York public to assist them by their attendanco at lhe>r conceits id the purchasing of proper instruments and in securing proper instruction, for the prosecution of their studies We are satisfied, that if our puhlic. twill but once lieai s?l>il Iran ftf a Vnu,' York Knil (hat thpr#? will hit nn tiouble hereafter in their course of study, for th?J li'k of mean*.

VICWB | ,n relation to the unconfoi inabikty of certain strata, as urged by the rrofeaaor -the Heilderbnrg rocks for ex- | ample. Professor H- here exhibited several plate* prepared by Uim to illuitriite his views. Profe?sor Kmmadi?Have you travelled over the j ground yourself? Professor Hall?I hare, most certainly. Mr Emmans j n ade some statements on this subject in a public iournal in opposition to my opinions ; but as my object is enquiry and information, not controversy, I pursued this *ui>- 1 ject with great attention. Professor H here pointed out on the diagram the positions of the various strata of rock which he had examined on the tirecn Mountains?the Hudson river. Professor Hoot sis wished to call attention to the object i of this controversy. If Dr. Emmans succeeds in his theory, it will establish the existence of life in this world long anterior to the period which is universally established at present. This tho^ s the general scope of the enquiry. j Prolessor R. here alluded to the exertions of himself and j his brother, ill their geological labors for the last seven j vears, in which they had actually originated and established various geological .nuior.ant points in geology, anil ! regretted that Professor Hall had omitted to name himself and hi* brother lor their elaborate researches, with a view to apply them to the Alps. Professor Hali. regretted that there should be any difference of opinion on this subject; I say that Professor Kogers and his brother had done much on this subject; but thare were oihers who had done much sarvice on this geological inquiri ; as to appl)ing them to the , Alp*, that question had been decided, twenty years ago. I He regretted to be compelled to say this. Professor Silliman?1 am sorry that the heat of the weather should have crept into our liscussions (laughter), and as we have hitherto got along like a band of brothers, 1 should like this question to he settled elsewhere. Of the merits of these respective gentlemen, there could exist not much difference of opinion. He hoped the gentlemen of the press would have the kindness not to notice this part ot their proceedings. It was exceedingly painful, and he hoped that the gentlemen who addtcssed them would confine themselves ?o a? to i enable the gentlemen present to understand what they were about-what the drilt of their remark*?for he would venture to sar that the auditory, so far, could M yet make nothing of it. (Laughter) The Chairman wished to explain in relation to the comparative merits ot the respecti e gentlemen who bad been named. Their high claims were not to be nualti.inn.! r.rrotpttor Roum wished to explain that it was because tlio names of himsrlf and hi* bro'hrrs were omitted by Mr. Hall, ho felt bound to notice the omission. Chaiuman?Well. I irust we ahall hav* no mora perKoiialitied, a? the a^ree.ible harmony which hitherto existed. he tru?ted alter this would continue to characterize their proceeding* Professor Rookks (brother to the former gentleman) i here ros? and contended that the whole Apalachian chain is the same grand system of rock, making allowance for those small changes which could be easily explained by the geologist. He felt with his brother in relation to his remarks on the subject of the omission of i his name by Mr Hall; and after the explanation given j by him he hoped they would continue iu the same path o'l enquiry with the utmost cordiality. Protesior Emmans regretted that any difference of opinion should have arisen on this subject, lie had no poetry in him, but wa? a patient gxtherer of facts. He differed with the gontleman who had preceded him as he had made a careful view of the subject for several years, i Mr. E. here in illustration of his views contended thit there was a marked difference along the chain referred to, in point of foisils, See., See. He wished the association to examine and determine for themselves. Adjourned to t'i o'clock, P M. The following are the remits of Professor Rr*wic*, after the reading of M r. Dam's paper on the Moon: It mny be suggested in reply ts the question of Professor Sillman, that it is not surprising that water has not been detected on the surface ot the moon, for if aqueous matter exist there, it mint under the circumstances have the solid iorm. It is well known that much of the hoat experienced at the surface of the earth is due to the pressure of the air, and as the moon has no approvable atmosphere, its surface will be in the tame condition as the topi of the highest mountain! of the earth. These are above the limit of perpetual conjelation, which,were there no atmosphere, would he at low ax the level of the sea. The moon, therefore, having little or no atmosphere, the aqueoua matter which fiom analogy, we may infer to exist there, must exist at its surtace in the form of ice and snow. The following synopsis of remarks by Dr. J. Wyman, on the fossil astrology of North America, preliminary to a final report on this subject to be at a future meeting of the Afisciation, nrc interesting. The whole number of species of fossil hitherto described is 49, belonging t* 82 different genera. Some general observations were made on a few of the more important mammiferous remains. The recent discovery of the bones of Mastadons had enabled Dr. J. B. S. -la.kson to make some interesting observations on the dentition of this animal. According to Dr. J the whole number of grinding teeth amounted to 14, presenting the following characters : ? the 1st and *id teeth have two ridges; the 3 I, 4th, and 5th have three, and the Oth has 'our, In the lower jaw of a young animal, he had failed to detect the tooth described by Frofeasor Owen, which replaces ita predecessor from beneath in.the lower and from above in the uppor jaw. After re' viewing the arguments which go to prove the tetracauloron of Dr Goodman to be identical with the great mastadon. Dr. \V. referred to the height of the mHstudon as indicated by different skeletons, the height of the one in the British museum was 10 tect ; this was the skeleton exhibited by Mr. Koch in the United States, under the name of the Mistounan. A very perfect skeleton belonging tofllarvavd I Diversity measuiing 10 feet9 inches, and the one now in possession of Dr. J C. Warron, of Boston, found at N't wburgh, N. V., and by far the most ,)crfect hitherto discovered, measured 11 feet. A daguelotype view of this skeleton, as it had been mounted under the direction of Dr. N B. Shurtteff, was exhibited These different measurements go to confirm the observation of tuvier, that the height of the maitadon and elephant were nearly the same A lew remark* were then mtde on the megatheroid animals of North America, and originality of the correct interpretation of the r>oues of the megalonyx was reclaimed for our countryman. Dr ?? j?i?i , wi r niiniu*ipuiB, wno reierren mem 10 me eaentate ordtr of animals, in opposition to the opinion of Prof leffercon, who legarded the mcgalonyx as gigantic oaruivemus beast, similar to a lion. Dr W. concluded his remarks with aonie observation* on the zengludon cetordes originally described by l)r Harlan as a reptile and the remains ol which were recently exhibited by Mr. Koch, as the hydrarcho* or fossil " sea serpent.'' Mora recent discoveries confirmed the observation of Prof Owen, tlmt this animal was allied to the whales (cetaceous) and not to the reptiles. Dr. Wyman gave an .inatomical description and exhibited drawings of the era nium of the rastoroides Ohioensls, a gigantic rodent This was the first entire cranium which nad ever been discovered, and bad enabled him to determine correctly the generic character! of the animal, for which the iia^mtntsof bones mid the lower juw previously discovered weic insufficient.

Carried. Mr lt? dpiklc then read a very ingenious paper drawn up by Doctor Coffin on the Theory ef Winds. This paper contained several new and curious remarks on the ubjei't. which we believe have escaped the observation of every other gentleman who has made that branch ol science a study. A motion was then made and carried, that Dr. Coffin I'O requested to continue bin reaoarchea and report the rrsiil'v to the anajciation at ita next meeting.

He also stated they j were engaged in making surveys of the ancient foililica- j tions of those regions, that in the course ol the excavations they had found these specimen*, withwaty othera equally cuiious. such as pipes anil other articles of pofteiy of exquisite workmanship and lar superior to auy thing manufactured by the present race of InJians.

U?) of Brooklyn and Professor Derby of John'* College, Mast, were eleeted members, and the meeting adjourned to 10 o'clock on Monday. City Intelligence, St. George's Church, Beekmais Street.?Morning prayer* were read by the Rev. D. A. Tyng, ion of the rector. After which, the Rev. Dr. Tyng (elected for hU morning discourse the ltit'.i p-talm and 11th verse, "Thou j will thow me the path of life ; in thy presence is full. : nets of joy ; at thy right hand, there are pleasures fcr evermore." The Rev preacher proceeded to show the , natural state and condition of man in this life, and that I which is tocorae. He asserted that the whole of this j psalm had a reference to the death and resurrection of , our Saviour Jesus Christ. They who take this path which 1 our Saviour trod, and which he has laid open to all his followers; they who obediently, under every aspect, make their live* conformable to his image, have God's most p ositive and solemn asstlranc# of their redemption : and entrance into his eternal and glorious kingdom. St Peter asserted this when he says, "Thou will not leave ' my soul in hell, neither will thou suffer thine holy one to tee coriuption." Ht- urged his hearers, especially every pilgrim, to choose the right path to make his peace with and submission to God, for every other lead* to ruin. The man who foi??kes'thU path, and has not chosen the voi) summit of nod's thioun shall break in upon him, ainl he shiill leel and know hi* lost and ruined condition. The Rev. preacher proceeded to show further, that the presence of <?Od is every where?that there is no corner to which we i'*n go to escane. Ood i* present in the converted soul. )? with him who ha* a broken and contrite heart. Then in these temples the Holy Uhost ever delighted to dwell; rejoice in the Lord wn always, the language of the Apostle. David. Isaiah, and St John, bear record of the joy of the redeemed. The Rev. gentleman, in the remainder oi his discourse, spoke of the wretchedness of those who for gold, or exalted station, or for the gratification of any of these unlawful desires, reject the proffered mercy and grace of the gospel, and compared them to the foolish mariner who, in the hour of shipwreck, lashed himself to the anchor, vainly hoping to escape his impending doom ? Alter the ?ermon, the Rector proceeded to administer the Holy Communion, assisted by his ion, which was received by a very large number of the congregation. The Rector informed the audience that the vestry of St. George's, with a view to accommodate the members of the congregation, who reside in the upper part of the city, and lor the purpose of forming a congregation before trie completion of their new edifice on Stuyresant Square, have made provision for evening service every Sunday evening, in the Preibyterian Church, in 8th street, at the head of Lafayette Place, and divine service, and a sermon by the Rector, Rev Dr. Tyng. may be expected every Sunday evening during the remainder of the year. . Gum Strket Church.?After the customary iu?pension, public worship was resumed Jin this sanctuary, and the Rev. Dr. McElroy delivered with his usual and |)0|Hilar style of address, an interesting discourse, taking lor his subject the 8th Psalm?" O Lord Ood, how excellent i* thy name in all the earth," Sic., ?Sic This psalm it a composure of the |meditations of David whilst contemplating the beauty and magnificence of th? visible lieavens; and brutalized, indeed, must the mind of that man be. whore thoughts and feelings are not elevated and solemnized by the serenity, loveliness, and grandeur of a night scene ; for that such was the glorious spectacle beheld by the psalmist, is evident, from the consideration that in the third verse no allusion is made to the tun, but solely to the moinand stars, which only serve in the absence of the solar orb. After u few preliminary remark*, the preacher, by way of exposition observed, that the contemplations of the psalmist weie prophetic of the glory of the gospel dispensation, the opposition which would be made to its introduction and progress in thin world, and the feebleness of the instrumentality by which the triumphant advancement of Christianity would be effected. Kor an army of " babes and sucklings'' to be marshalled against a body of well disci piiueil veterans, and overthrow and put them to rout, was, indeed, a miruclc not to be accounted for on natural and rational principles ; yet so it was, that Christianity had prevuilod over the most powerful and subtle assault* by the weak instrumentality of those illiterate men vi liorn God hud appointed to turthar i's propagation. The word " man" was used in Scripture in rriuronce to hi* state of innocence and apostacy, in which latter sense it wits employed by the pialinist, whose astonishment was elicited hv contemplating the condescension of liod in his mercifnl visitation towards him, esix-cially exhibited in the humiliation and redemption of Christ And here 1 the preacher presented his views lespectiug the meaning of the 4, S, anu 6 verses?that the phi a?e, " a little lower thin the angels," referred to the period of Christ's humiliation, and not to any degrees of dignity in comparing man, with a higher order of cieated intelligence. The great ditlii'ulty connected with the passage, was the suddenness ol the transition, which, however, could be satisfactorily explained upon the con?itleration that the psalmist || pen snot in the character of a logician, but a devout worshipper in a soliloquy?when subjects come before and go from the mind in great variety and corresponding abruptness The dominion over the creature was considered as delegated to man, since the fall, as a part ol the mediatorial work of Christ, and the opinion was offered that in the millennium, the ferocity of the animal creation would be subdued, and in the contemplation of " the latter day glory,' the psalmist renews his hymu of ptaise and adoration, " O Lord God, how excellent is thy name in all the earth !" The preacher concluded with '.he following practical reflections : ?That a spirit of devotion is indispensably necessary to take a ju?t viow of the world's creation?that the glory ot redemption far excels the glory of the mateiial universe?that no man can entertain a jmt view of the blessings of salvation who has not a heartfelt conviction of his own sinfulness Since it is '.his alone which gives the advantage to the humblest christian over the proud philosopher, who, with all his lolty and scitntiflc attainments cannot discern in the works of nature the surpas?iug glory of the work ol grace?that no despair nee.l be excited regarding the final and triumphant success of the gospel over all the opposition it is still destined to encounter, the preacher finishing with foreboding apprehensions that Christianity would have to pa<s through darker clouds, and undergo a severity of opposition suck as she had not yet experienced.

It will be perceived on reference to a table of comp | rative quotations, which we give below, that quotation* for nearly every stock in the list have, during the past week, been gradually but steadily declining. There i* no causo for this movement, growing out of the state Of our money markets, or any unfavorable prospect in relation to our commercial affairs generally, bat is produced more bra combination of brokers in Wall street, than by I any thing else, or in other words, the bear* are in the ] ascendency. If the state of the money market wai luch as to causa a decline ia stocks, the depreciation would be general, or ' we might say universal. Such, however, is not the case, while some of the fancics are falling off one or two par cent daily ; others are advancing at the rate of twenty and twenty-five per cent per day. This is enough to show that it is something else than the money market that causes the decline in stocks. We do not see as there ia much margin for a falling off in the principal fancies. Harlem and Norwich and Worcester certainly have no margin for depreciation ; but on the contrary, in our opinion, have a wide margin for an advance. In about thirty days, the Harlem road will be estended twenty-seven miles, making its entire length fifty milaa The extension terminates at Somera, a large and thriving town in rutnam county, and in the centre of a rich and extensive agricultural country. Aa a permanent investment, the stock of this company ii worth much more than it is selling for in the market, notwithstanding the miserable management of the road, and the many abuses which are daily practiced in its operation. The Norwich and Worcester Railroad Company never was in a more prosperous and thriving condition than it is now. Since the new and magnificent boat of the com* pany,the Atlantic, was put upon the rou'.e, tho receipts have increased a large per cent. The profits on the boats of the company alone are now one th out and dollari per night, and the transportation of through passenger* on the railroad to enable the boats to nett that profit, must bo very large. This ia the favorite route to lioston, and it* local travel it very large, being of itaelf sufficient to pay the entire running expenses of the road, leaving the through travel to pay off the floating debt of the company, to provide the appropriation to the sinking fund, and to furnish funds for the payment of dividends. We have good authority for stating that a dividend of three per cent will he declared from the nctt earnings of the com' piny, for the six mouths ending December 31, lf>46, and p lid on, or soon after, the 1st of January, 1847. This re sumption of the paymout oi semi-annual dividends will be permanent. The roud will, even intheovent of ther* 4 being no increase, oarn enough to pay six per cent per annum, and make all the necessary appropriations for other payments. Tuis being so well settled, it is a matter of much astonishment that the stock of the company rules at such low prices in the market. At sixty it is a ten per cent stock, at present prices nearly an eleven per cent investment, with a margin of forty-four per cent before it reaches par. There hat not been much done lately in Morris Canal; price* appear to have touched bottom, and a* soon ai it uit* the views of those interested in depressing the market. to let it up, there will be a rise as rapid as the decline has been. The parties diiectly interested in a further decline in this stock are closely connected with its management, and are making great efforts to get pnees down so low that ihey can get hold of a large portion of the stock, when movements will bo made which have been for a long time in contemplation, that will, if successful, place the market value of the stock many per cent above present prices. So far as we are able to judge, there appear* very little doubt in our mind, but that the movements alluded to will be auccessful; that the party at work depressing prices will succeed in getting por session of a large part of the stock?that the bondholder* will lose their lien upon the canal, and that eventually there will be on advance in the stock which will place it nearly in the position it fell from. There is no danger of Morris Canal going out of sight There is still further no doubt but that it will come up again one of these day* a* good as new. This has been a stock of too much importance to the speculator* ?f Wall street, to let go *0 easily as many in Wall street would have o'hers believe, and we have every faith, for the reasons above given, in its being ultimately reinstated in it* former position. We annex a comparative table of quotation* for the principal stocks in this market, fur each day of tho past week, and at the close of the previous week. It will be observed that there has been throughout the week a gra dual, but steady decline in mo?t of thananciei. This we attribute maro to the little disposition manifest by operatort to make transactions, than to uny tightness in th? money market, or any other real cause for a depression.
