Wo published n short time since in this journal, n leading article on this subject, ba<ed on the report ol tho Senata Committee to whom the subject whs referred during the last session of (Congress, ami which report was founded on the memorial ot Mr Whitney, asking an appropriation ol a strip o land thirty miles in width along the whole line, lor the purpose of building the road. We then stated that the Senate Committee had divi 'ed their ruport into twelve different parts; ' t li: firs', of which, v!z,, the power of Congress ov"r the entire subject in all its bearings, we dispo.-ed of then. The second of these points, vis , the practicability of the proposed work, we intend to take up in the present article, premising beforehand that we have for a long time been satisfied of its perfect practicability. frequent Jeiierson, in a coniiueunai cominumcui ori to Congress uu the 18th January, 1803, suggr?<t d tin- propriety of employing an exploring expedition to the source of the Missouri river, and thence to the Pacific, as to the practicability of op"ning " communication with that ocean. The expedition having been completed, Mr. Jefferson in h>s message to Congress on the 2d of December, 18'JT), Ma??-d that 'he expedition of Messrs. Lewis & Clark had all the success which could have been expected ; that they had traced the Missouri nearly to its t-ource, descended the Columbia river to the Pncific Ocean, and ascertained with accuracy tin geography of that interesting communication across the continent, and learnt the character of the country, of its commerce, and ol its inhabitant*. Tlie route proposed by Mr. Whitney pursues 1 the valley of the Columbia by Lewis's Branch to th? great South Pass, and thence nearly due east, striking the Missouri above the mouth of the great Plattr river, and the Mississippi above the mouth of the Wi^onsin river, until it strikes the shore of lake Michigan. The committee then reier to the testimony of Captain Fremont:? ho itatei ftiut tho route he "followed in 194-2 was up the vulley of the Oreat Platte river to the South Pass, in nor'h ! tlitude 42? " "The road which is now generally folloA'oJ through this region is n very good one. without any .iirti.-il't 3H'cm? to overcome."

Wc thus, have this most important fact established, Viz: that the piacticability of building a railroad that willconnect the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, is beyond question. This is decidedly ine mou important enquiry, ana it graunes us exceedingly that it is placed beyond question, by data which is indisputable. May we not hope thnt et'- Ion# this subject will receive the atten- t lion its magnitudo on the interests of the | country d?serves, and h ?t before many years we shall see the work commenced 1 I J We have more to say on this sub jeet nother i time. J t I in Tjcacl with Mr.Kico.?Two or three days < ago, n paper in tins city published a ridiculous let- j tnr, purporting to come from Havana, and con- t taint:.g the terms of a treaty, said to have been made with Santa Anna. We looked upon the ] story nt -lie time as an absurd one, and wn now find tniu the I'mini is authorized to characterize ( it ns such. The Union says : I Of the nature ami kind of this respectability, our read ' er? may judge from the fact? which we are authorized ' to State in tha raoit nbiolute nod unqualified manner? that Mere ia not a particle of truth in the whole iitory. | Kroin t'egiiiinnn to and, it i? pure Action , and it ia no leu l>u?ur?J Dun 1*1 Hit M^ltun (5?>ncr?iwriulr ChtfUtM *l?d < nurigf) Oiir reader* will recollect thai the first account of the battle of i'ulo Alto mentioned the death ol a Mexican general, named Torrejon. After the lapse of a week or ten days, the report of Torrejon's death at l'alo Alto was contradicted ; and ,t was then stated that, after escaping the sabres of May's dragoons, lie had gone to Tampico, where he died of fever. Uut, lo ! a new minor is afloat touching Torrejon, according to which, that general is still in the land of the living, and is preparing, at the head of some cavalry, to cut off Col. Hays! May be, this third rumor is as groundless as the two previous ones. If, however, there be any foundation for it, it will be necessary for the gallant Hays to be on his guard; for this Torrejon, though not a military genius, is brave, enterpris ing, find very cunning. None of the Mexican general!! are better adapted for guerilla warfare than he is. Ho was made general in 1840, having in that ye:ir gained great repute by his defeat of some troops who had revolted against the government. lie drew them into an ambuscade, and though their force wa? to his as three is to one, he soon cut them to pieces. Torrejon, unlike many of the Mexican officers w said to be inaccessible to a bribe. He and Canolizo (another brave and enterprizing soldier) were the only generals oi note who remained faithful to Bustamsnte during the revolution of 1841. One day they presented themselves to the President (Bustamente), and told him they had formed a plan for surprising Santa Anna, who was then on his march to the Mexican capital. " Sanction our enterprise," (they said to Bustainante,) "and we pledge our word, that within forty-eiylit hours, and in this jruu siuui BCD caiiin Aiiiia, ciuirr uuuit ur nlive." There is no doubt that Torrejon and Ca] [ uahzo, would have done what they proposed to do ; for the troops of Santa Anna were the worst 1 in the republic, and much fatigued by the forced marches they had been obliged to make. Besides, it was notorious, that Santa Anna rareiy gained a battle, when he commanded in person. But un- ! fortunately for Bustamnnte, he was overwhelm- j ed by the difficulties of his position, lie distrust j ed Torrejon and Canalizo?men whose honesty ! and devotion to his cause, were apparent to all | Mexico. Their project?as feasible a one as was j ever contrived?was rejected by him, almost with- ' outgiving it considers*ion. What has been the consequence 1 Why, that in the course of two or three weeks, the reins of government slipped from his fingers, and fell into the tenacious grasp of his rival, Santa Anna ! Santa Anna, on his elevation to the presidentship, acted both wisely and generously towards Torrejon and Canahzo. Upon these men?who, had Bustamento permitted them, would have taken Santa Anna, "dead or alive"?he showered benefits innumerable. To Torrejon, he gave an important command in the north ol Mexico.? And when in 1814 he started on the exped.tion | which resulted in his overthrow by I'aredes, he left Canalizo in the city of Mexico, as his locum j teiitns. We may observe thatTorrejon is a Mestiza, or in other words, is of Indian, as well as Spanish, descent. Military Service?Sappers and Miners.?We stated, in an article under this caption, yesterday, tnat the members composing tlio new company of sappers and miners recently organised under the act of Congress, had made many complaints of the treatment they were receiving from their officers. Since we wrote that article, we have been informed that the complaints wc referred to | were greatly exaggerated ; and that although there is some murmuring among the men, that they are altogether without cause. It is reasonable to suppose that a body ol men will not have so many privileges i in the army of tho United States, as they 1 are accustomed to enjoy in their own ) homes, and at their own firesides. We are disposed to believe, from what we have sinco learned, that there is no real cause of com- | p'aint, and that this new company are treated, in every respect, ns well as the rules and regulations of the service upon which they have entered, will permit. They enlisted with the understanding tlmt they would receive an engineering education, and it is the intention of the government to teach them engineering and other kindled sciences, when they aro not engaged in active service. In this respect they possess advantages not j within the reach of privates in the regular army. 1 They likewise have advantage in point of pay.? 1'lie lollowing is the rate of pay they receive, viz:? 10 KArffMiita $.30 per month 10 corporals 16 " " 39 privates, !ir?t class 13 " " 39 " second class 9 " " When we compare these sums with those paid lift snmo rlnKitPt nf rn?*r* in thn rpirnlnr nrinv uro >erceivc at once a dilTerence in favor ot the new company of sappers and miners. The following is the pay in the regular army, viz :?Corporals $9 per month, sergeants $13, anil privates $7 per I month. On the score of pay and advantages ol receiving useful knowledge, the position of the now company is intinitely superior to that of the regular privates. We trust to hear no more complaints from the men composing this new company. This is a new thing in our army regulation", and in order to ensure its success the utmost harmony should exist among all concerned. Of p.oursa the men may meet with inconveniences they never anticipated, hut like good citizens they ought to know that the good of the service re|iur(jf that a rigid discipline should be established md preserved ; and they ought, and we have no ioubt Will take pleasure in submitting to all reguations that may be imposed on thein.

Thii is the last time this magnificent j.lay will be produced during the present engagement of Mr. and Mrs. Kean, and we may say now, without going into ita particular merits, that no play has ever been put on any American stage, so perfect in all ita parts us " Richard III.," us lately played by Mr. Kean at the I'ark. The management of the Park, as well as Mr. Kean, deserve the greatest praise for the very perfect style in which they have presented this play, and for their intention to produce others of the great conceptions of Sha!(?|>eare with similar splendor. Thisevening Mrs. Kean takes her benefit, on which occasion she appears as I'ortia, to Mr. Kcan's Khylock, in the " Merchant of Venice." and aflei wards as Donna Violunte, to Mr. K.'s Don Felix, in the comedy of " The Wonder," (cut down to three acts) Mr. Kean's Shy lock is one of his best parti, as it was of his father; and of Mrs. Kean's Portia, wn may say that there is at presant nothing on the stage to match it. Bowcrv Theatre.?The tragedy of " Romeo and Juliet," anil the drama of the " Carpenter of ilouen," were enacted at this theatre last evening. The house was fillej with a highly respectable audience. Mini Dean was enthusiastically applauded, and the whole performances went nfl' very well. The same bill will be repeated this evening, which fact it sufficient to drew a full house. There will shortly be produced at thii theatre a nautical drama, entitled the " Lion of the Sea," which it now in rehcartal; and from what we can learn, it it i likely to havo a tremendous run. I Gkiewwich thratait.?would remind the pub. lie that thi* is the last night but one of the engagement of Mrs George Jones, whose talents as an actress are acknowledged to be of a high order. Sho will appear this evening in Pauline, in the " Lady of Lyons," one of her best characters, and as Meg Merrilie*, in " Guv Mannering." This lady has bocome great favorite with the patroni of this establishment, and has aided, in a groat measute, to add to the prosperity of the Greenwich. Wc expect to see a very large house here thi* evening. Caitlk Gardkr.?The Buffo troupe of Kthiopian singers continue to draw crowds nightly to this beautiful re sort. Mr. Holraan, a very fine singer, and Mr. Thomp" son, a very popular dancer, add to the attiactions by the exercise of their respective talents. There in no place where one can enjoy himself better than at Castle Gar- j den. Independent of the attractions above enumeiated, and the beautiful dissolving views, cosmorxmas and Chi- I nese fireworks, tho saloon itself is well worth a visit, | and tho refreshments are of excellent quality. Mil. Kohkest.?This gentleman arrived yesterday in J the packet ship Rochester, from Liverpool, after a professional tour through England and Iieland. He appears at the Park on Monday evening next, iu " King Lear."? We hope, for the sake of the management, that j that theatre will scatcely contain tho crowds that will (1n/*lr ?> tvnlonrna VI r t'nrroaf nn liia first annnnrun^n of" tor his leaf; sojourn in a foreign country. We trust that invidious comparisons with foreign artists will bo avoided on all tides, ami that Mr. Korrest will bo judged on his own merits solely. This is but fair, and it is the only mode of arriving at a true appreciation of his professional ability.

A complaint was likewise made against the landlord of a portion of these houses, a Mr. Oroondates Mauran, of No. 6 Leroy l'lace, charging him with building and leasing these houses for the oxpress purpote of prostitution, and thereby becoming a nuisance to the neighborhood. This'complaint, it will be seen, has been undertaken in a correct , and powerful manner, by some of our aost respectable citizen* residing in that vicinity, who have eudured for years past this intolerable nuisance?the rear windows of , the houies in Franklin street being in full viuw of the rear windows of these disorderly places - subjecting their families to a continual view of obscenity, render- j ing it im|>ossible for their families to set at the wiudows without being annoyed by these disgusting character;.

At the time of the accident there were aetbe forty persons on board, including the paseengere and crow. It was impossible to ascertain last evening how many live* were lost, but only four of thoM injured have been beard of, besides one milling, who was a fireman, and went by the name of James. Of the four taken to the hoipital, one, who was an old man named Wynant, supposed to belong to Montgomery, Orange county, died immediately from | injuries be received. Two more of those wounded were engineers of the boat, and another was a passenger named Wm. Hall, a ship carpenter, who was going up the river to engage in his trade. The two engineers were brothers, named George and WUliam Van Wart. The Excelsior was a new boat, and waff not deeply laden at ; the timo of the accident.

' "Captain Nelson, of the Excelsior, stated this evening : in our presence, at me American Hotel, Jersey City, that afier the bursting of her boiler, tlie boat being just out- 1 side the slip, he called to one or the Jersey City Kerry I boats, which lay near, and begged assistance to get the ExAbior back to her alip, which could have been done with ease and without (fairer to the ferry boat?but all aid was denied, and the ferry boat weiit on her regular trip.

Thc Arrkst or thb Murderer.?Calvin Russ, the man who murdered hit wife Eliza on Wednesday evening, by cutting her throat with a razor, was arrested yesterday morning, under the following singular circumstances. It appear* that as Mr. Abraham Pitcher was passing along Orange street, a little after 8 o'clock yes terday morning, he observed a man pass out from an alley way apparently somewhat in liquor, and proceed towards White street, and having but a (light reeollec- 1 tiou of the piisoner'* person, consequently he was unable to recognize him ax once. However, he turned around and followed after hitn. ltuss turned the corner of Orange street into White, on the opposite corner to where he had committed the murder, looking over at the premises, seemingly with deep thought at the awful deed he had done ; passing along White to Centre, and along Centre, stopping directly in lront of the Tombs, ' ou iiif oppowe kiuo ui iu? way, mr. ruuuer iuiiuwui^ close behind, endeavoring to tix his identity. Upon looking a little mora minutely at his person, when he turned to go back again, Mr. Pitcher observed a s|>ot of Mood on hit (the prisoner's) coat; upon seeing this his suspicions were realised, and he immediately said to tlie prisoner, " How do yon do, Mr. Rust)" upon which the prisoner answered, " My name is not Ruts." On receiving thii antwer, Mr. Pitcher took hold of hit right arm, ana perceiving the sleeve of his coat all bloody, said, " What doe* this mean I" and Rust answered, " 1 liavn't done any thing." Mr. Pitcher then told him he must go with him, and conducted the prisoner across Centre street into the police station house, where bo wat taken into custody by Captain McUrath, and on searching his pereon very sharp bloody razor was found in his pecket; his vest, shirt, coat and pantaloons were all spotted with the blood of his victim. On being stripped of the clothing, (which was dono to be retained as evidence,) Iluss remarked to Captain Mctiraili mat he commi tted the murder, and that they might hang him at quick as they 1 d n please. Ou the Coroner being ready to hold thj inquest, the prisoner was taken to the room where he had committed the murder, his wile still laying on the floor, presenting u most ghastly spectacle. The Coroner then asked him it he knew that woman?to which he answered yes. The Coroner then said, " Is she your wife?' and the prisoner answered; " Yes ; we are married." To theso questions, and at the appearance of the body, he maintained a firm and immovable ap- j pearance, showing that he is a desperate and hardened ' villain ; and instead of jealousy being the cause of the deed, it appeals to have been nothing but pure malice and wicked disposition ; lor wu understood that, some short time ago, he endeavored to persuade her to prosti tute herself to procure money to support him. lie has been heard to say irequently that ho would kill her, and that he would have to be hung for her yet After see- ' nig the Douy, in the presence 01 me jury, uuss was con- j ducted back to the Coronei's otiice, when the inquest was held, and a verdict rendered by the jury that " Kliza Russ, wife of the prisoner, came to her death by being murdered by her husband, Calvin Russ, by his severing her throat nearly from ear to ear with a razor, on the 9th day of September, 1816. at the house No. 131 White stroet, in the tith ward of the city of New Vork." We have been informed that the deceased, Eliza Russ, is niece to Mr. Trowbridge, of L'tica, forwarding merchant, and formerly lived with a Mr. Lovett, of Albany, before her marriage, by whom she obtained some little property, at his death. She was a young woman, of respectable connexions, and liberally educated ; and bv her unfortunate marriage with Kuss has met with an un timely grave. Alarms a*d Fires.?This was a city of fires yesterday. There were no less than nine alarms, aud the bells were ringing almost frein sunriso to sunset. Our streeU were filled with firemen and they seemed to be the most active and valuable portion of our population throughout the day. Annexed is a list of tho fires so far as as we have asceit&ined:? One was in Laurens street, in what ii called Ro'.ton row, several old buildings were destroyed. Another was the Soap Chandlery on the corner of James and Cherry streets.

I.?Thta wu foraTurta of fW, two mile heats In harnen, for which four of the beat horses in the United State? were to contend, us follows : Geo. Hpicer entered b. g. Amorictu. P. Hunt b g. Moscow. W. Whelan br. m. Dutchen A. Campbell br. g. Peter Smith. The first three named honea made their appearance on the ground, but Peter Smith waa not there when called for. We could not ascertain why Peter waa not forthcoming, lmt suppose that hia owner thought it of little ! use for him to go with such celebrated animals as Amer- : icus, Moscow, and Ducheaa. The day waa a most lovely one for the sport, and great I numl>ers turned out to witness the match. A great many ' of the sporting fraternity, however, were deterred from attending with their horses and vehicles, on account of the malady now raging on Look Island among horses, the prevailing impression being that it is a contagious disease; J consequently the majority of the owner* of valuable horses ' in keeping them at home to escape disease, lost the chance ' themselves of witnessing the very best trot that hasta. | ken place within the recollection of the oldest sporting inhabitant. Still, tnose who went to the course with hired horses were very numerous, there being at lent j one hundred different kinds of vehicle* around the en! cloiure ; and there were numberless exhibitions of speel ! on the road, both in going to and returning from the track. ' The Long Island train took up several hundred ; and we j noticed several lovers of racing, pedestrianizing to the | I course, notwithstanding the great distance from the j city. When Americus anj Moscow appeared on the track, ! i the judges of horse flesh declared them both in fine con j ' dition. Americus was the favorite at 100 to 60 against the field?and in ono or two instances three to one were I laid out on him, that he would beat Moscow. When the Duchess appeared, offers were made at even that she, ; too, would beat Moscow j but hii friends seemed shy.? j i The mare certainly was in very fine condition, as the' result of the match will prove. Mosnow had improved [ considerably in his appearunce since the last day he contended with Duchess , hut the tiinc that he made in that ! match not coming up to the mark of his previous achievements, made bis admirers cautious, and oven douMlul about investing much on him. Previous to the *tart tlie judges decided that Americu J j wns to be placed on the iiisido, Ditches* in the centre, and Moscow on the outside They , then called up the different driver*, and gave them the usual instructions, ' explained to them the nature of the match, and hoped ! that each one would do his best to make it a fair shake. Kibst Hut?The horses came ap as apj>ointed above, ! and (>tihe first attempt started, Duchess taking the lead, both the horaea well tin ; Ameritu* second, and Moscow ! closely following. They kept in thi* way to the half- ' mile pole, when .Moscow came up with Americu*, and went side and side vrith him lor a short timo ; then Amo- j ricus made a dash, and came up with the mare at the ; three quarter pole, Moscow some distance in the roar. : A* they came along by the diitance pole, Amoricu* and Duchess had their head* together, and in thi* way they 1 passed the stand. On leaving the stand and going round the corner, the mare threw him aside, evidently not liking hi* company but he persisted in paying his devoir* ' to her, and again placed nimself at her side on nearing the half, Moscow being about ten or twelve yard* be- | hind. Moscow here made a brush, and broke up, but rc- i covered in an inatant ; then Americus dashed by the I mare, and, in *o doing, he broke up, and loat ground, giving Moscow achunce to associate with the Ducheu. 1 At this point the interest was intense. Moscow was a* indefatigable a* possible, but he was not nimble enough on the foot for her ladyship, and ahe came in winner of the heat by a neck, Americu* about twenty yard* he- I v.:_ i fnk- ?uu .* . r*-i ?- ?- I uiiin. iuo uiuo ui una iicai n u as luiiuws :?rirai mue, 2:16,la; second mile, 2:44; total, 5:30)^. Id this heat Motco v had to draw out aom) distance (at the time Americus broke up ; probably, if that had not occurred, thing* would have been different. The betting now changed, and there were somo queer-looking fares at the result. Duchess stock took a rapid rise, and those who had heavy investments in tho Americus were willing to part with them at a discount. Moscow went up a little in the opinions of somo, and bis | chances fer the ipurse were considered good. Still bets on Americus were ottered at evens, and taken pret- ] ty l'reely. When the horses were taken out of harness ' to be rubbed, Duchess appeared to have the advantage \ in condition. SccoriD Heat.?The mare was now ontitled to the inside of the track, Moscow next, and Ameiicui on the outside. At the start, Moscow took the lead, waited on by Duchess, Americua in a good position. Moscow, as he passed the quarter-pole, was the length of his sulkey ahead, hut when he reached tho half mile pole, the mare and Americus were even with him, not a head to spare. He got away from them again during the next quarter, on passing which they were at him again, head to head, and they continued in this way up to the distance pole, and the enly difference appearing, as they passed the stand, was the noso of the mare. Away they went again, keeping side by side to the quarter, where Americus fell off a few yards, which he closed up again at the half. Between this pole and the three-quarters, the mare broke up, and was thrown out of the chances of winning this heat. Moscow new had the lead, closely followed by Americus, and after a desperate struggle between theeo two noble animals, tliev came up to the stand, the partisans of each claiming the heat. The judges, however, decided it to be a dead heat?aud their judgment must always close the mouthsofthe most clamorous : and so it was here, for in a short time all seemed satisfied. The time of this heat was?lust mile, 2:41.',,; second mile, 2:43)*; total, S:2a. After the settlement ot ilie previous squabble about foul driving. It appeared, from a broken speke in the wheel of Moscow's sulkey, that the Duchess and be had been in too close approximation for the safety of their driven. At the call to prepare fur the next heat Americus became again the lavorite at two to one, but j no takers ; the presumption being that the following heats belongod to him Thi?i> Ukat ?After a false start, the horses all started together, neither having an advantage; but soon Moscow got a little in front, Americus after him. The mare now, i from an unknown cau^e, fell oA'considerably. At the half mile pole, both the horses were tide by side, the mare still losiDg ground, and in this position they continued past the three-quarter pole, and ail the way round to the stand,there being, advantage in favor ofoither horse?the mare very lar behind. At the quarter pole, on the last mile of this heat, they continued as before, and at the half mile pole they had not deviated a foot fioin their old places; but the maro was now lull one hundred yards behind, and some apprehensions were felt about lier being distanced. On tho horses nearing the stand, Americus broke up, but in uti iustant, he was playing away again as lively as ever, although not quite so fast a* was needed, for Moscow led home a length in most beautiful style?the mare inside of the distance.

The stock market continue* very quiet, and prices without any material alteration. Morris Canal went up >t; Canton )%'; and Reading \. Long Island fell off X ; Harlem >?'; Fanners' Loan, Norwich and Worcester, and Ohio O's closed at yesterday's prices. There appears to be very little life or activity in the ?iut?v uiaincv, buu nuiu u?jr iw U07 merely a fraction of a per cent, and the broker* in tl\< treet have nearly all the o|>eration* among themseJ'.es. It appears to be impossible to get outsider* to cor.a forward j they have boen so frequently >-nd to ??',orely bit that they are afraid to toucb any of the ar sortment of fancy stocks in the list The mouey mai^et is decidedly easier than it has been before for EPonthi. Quotation* for some of the stock* in the street are comparatively low, and we see nothiug in tho perspective likely to prevent a steady progress and a healthy prosperity in all the ramifications ottrade ; notwithstanding which, there are no indication* at pre*ent of any movement in the tock market tending to an improvement of any consequence in prices. The daily tale* in the itreet are in amall Iota and on ihort time, at either buyer*'or *eller*' option, and the brokers appear to be satisfied in making a quarter or a half per cent out of each other. They cannot carry on that system of business much longer, a* many (peculator* in the street will not have a quarter or a half per cent to lose. They cannot prey upon each other for any great length of time, and many must go hungry if something is not done soon to give them a chance to make a few dol" lars out of the outiider*. The new or lower board of brokers has recently been ro-organiseil upon the most approved system of the age, and the financial genius ef those who perfected the plan upon which the board is now based, cannot be doubted. It even does credit to Wall street. In consequence of so many members being involved in financial difficulties, and unable to sottln their differences, there was every danger of the board becoming completely deserted and extinct, it, tljprefore, became necessary to revive it by the application of some new and powerful comedy.- The first movoment made was to past resolution declaring every member tree from all contracts and all differences, or in other words permitting them to repudiate all their liabilities, giving them the privilege, of course, of holding on to whatever assets they might bo fortunate enough to possess. Being thus exonerated by a resolution of the board from all claims, they were ready to resume their seats, provided the price of membership waa within their means. To remove any obstacle of that nature, the price was reduoed, and the board filled up at once. It is now in full operation, but how long it will remain so, is very difficult to tell. If repudiating resolutions are passed about once every six months, the bjard may remain full, but not otherwiso. The white-washing must tako place semi-annually, to preserve even th? molt important member*.
