NEW YORK HERALD.! 1*** MonUuy, September '41, 1S4H. Ths Aspect of ttiv Mtilctili War We published, iu yesterday's regular edition of the Htruld, some intereMing news from the army and Worn Mexico, which was brought to New 0?.> a:i? bjr tin: mid Arab. The inu lligence from the army tally confirms what we have heretofore re; eived, ai^d proves that the American troops, under the command of Gen. Taylor, were in good healih and moving towmds M r.terey w.th all passible expedition, nnd are es abltshing dtyblt atCamargo and oih?cr places, with due care und prudence. , The news brought by the Arab, which sailed from Vera Cruzon the&d inst., is ol greater importance, inasmuch as it shows conclusively that the i reception of Santa Anna after his long exile, was uol BO il.uiciirJf; u& umiij uuu icbjuii iu ucucvo it would have been. There was no great public demonstration on hi* arrival; and ou his landing, ho wai greeted by the congratulations of only a lew pi:vate friends. It seems, likewise, that he had not reached the capital at the latest dates, but pre- ! lerred to remain at his haeittxda, in the vicinity of ! Ja apa, ostensibly for the purpose of recruiting his health, but really, no doubt, because ho was disappointed in the manner of his reception. In the meantime, it appears tha! the army at San Luis Potosi, had again declared in favor of the dictator Paredes. whose overthrow was occasioned by iIib declaration in favor of Santa Anna, and who w?s then lying a prisoner in the CasUe ot Perote. This is certainly an anomalous state of ihinas, even among th* Mexicans, who axe ihenifclvcs nil auomnly. Their former ruler is a prisoner, and the man whom the Caftle of San Juan de Ulloa, and the city ofVeraCrtiz declared fnr ia tt vehement manner?and who had returned, in obedience to the popular will, is permuted to land, according to tho advices, moro like a private citizen, than like a ruler?without any ot those popular demonstrations which that people are so given to. It corroborates, however, the opinion we have always entertained, concerning that variable people. t?,These circumstances, we think, are ofdeep importance, a* regards our present ho-t:.le relations wiihthem It is the (funeral impression in the United 3ta'e<, formed from a v triety of corrobor<*?"ei eumttances, that art implit-d, if not a d ' .t iir,dor>tpiifliin/ exited between the cabinet a Waii.ina:On end Sunt.! Anna?that in the event of hit N?i?g rt.?Mred 10 th* control of the destinies of \l?-x co, he would exert bis influence in b'i'ijf'ng nhnut a peace as speedily as possible. Wc have before stated, that wc believed be was pursuing n policy that would lead to this result? hut the whole appearance of things become tome* hat c^iansjed by the threatened revolution in fuvor nf Paredcs. If the declara'ion in favor of Paredes, should become gene ? among the army, of course Santa Anna's 0wer and influence are at an end, and Paredes J1 be restored to the situation he was deprived ' .by the pronunciamcnto of Vera Cruz?an J Paiode# will be compelled, perhaps, to prosecute the war. On our part there will be no diminution of vigor incarrving on the war. Once fairly established , at Monterey. General Taylor will be in po'sension of the principal stronghold in Northern Mexico. Tnis place will be taken, nodoubt, without opposi'ion But the question next arises what value will it be to us 1 We will have to carry the war farther into the interior, but no advantages will accrue to us, ui less we march to the city of M?xico?for no enemy of consequence will opr o?c our army. Our relations with Mexico, it thus appears, are in a most complex, confused, and complicated condition. seems that the very weakness of Mexico is her strength. Civil War at hie West.?Tun Mormon Tkovbi.es ?If there is any thing calculatrd to j lowrr the American people and ibeir institutions in the eyes of the old world, it is the state of things j t 'at has existed for a year or two past among the ? i a . m _ .i_ ur r... inormo: * anu Aiiu-mormons in hip wcti. rui that period cf time these two factions have been opposed to each other in the most violent manner; and now matters have reached such a state, through the imbecility of certain official?, who, by the me of proper means, could havo effectually suppressed all discord in its first stages, j that we hourly loo'x for the occurrence of scenes of bloodshed and discord, that will be a disgrace to the oountry and century we live in. We are informed by tho latest accounts from that distracted region that a battle took place be- ! tween the Mormons and their opponents on the ' eleventh instant?that the opposing parties met j on the road to the city of Nativoo, and within one j ; mile of the great temple?'he destruction of ] which was resolved upon. The loss in this disgraceful fight was fiftenn or sixteen of the Anti- . Mormons and one of the Mormons. The bellige- 1 1 rents then withdrew to their respective positions, to renew the tight at some future time. The next . news from there will probably bring us accounts of another fight of a more disastrous nature. "Ws can hardly find words sufficiently st rong blinded mob law proceedings on the part of the beilig .-ren's, and of the imbecile conduct of Governor Ford, of Illinois, who, in their early stagos, had the power of suppressing them by the strong arm of the law. If this otficer had acted in n determined manner at the first outbreak, and used the power and resources of the State of Illinois, to suppress them, as did the Governor of the .State erf X??w York, to suppress the anti-ren* outrages in Delaware, Rensselaer and Albany, the result would have been the same, and the honor and oh&racter of the State of Illinois would have been preserved. Law and order would have triumphed over the tnobbish portion of both parties, and the reputation of the republic been preserved. By not acting jndicioa !y and determinedly at first, h* now rt?d< th u the spar k, which he could have so easily smothered at first, has been fanned 1 in'o a flame of fearful magnitude, that defies the J power of the law, and threatens anarchy and ci- i ril revolution in the State, whose destinies he has been elected to preside over. We care nothing for the causes that have led to this disgraceful state of things They may have been of an extraordinary nature?calculated to excite ill-will and hatred between the Mormons and their opponents for aught we know ; it ii enough for us that the results are disgraceful to ail concerned, to ensure the actors of both parties Being cona?mn',a irom one ?na 01 mo country to the other. W? see a large proportion of the people of a State arrayed against each other with ami in their hands?we see them take positions in battle form, and deal o?t the death destroying lead in the same manner as they wonld against common enemies of their country, and all .ais too because the religious sentiments of one party disagree with those entertained by the otbei. Woat a commentary this it> on the benefits and influences of free institutions and republican government 1 We would fain hope that tho ringleaders of bo'h parties will see th^ impropriety of their proceedings before any more bleod is spill?if a second battle has not already taken place?and that they Will arrange their difficulties, and return to their homes, like peace-loving and patriotic citizens. If, to accomplish this desirable end, itmiy he necessary for each to make cone???ion, let it done by all means. Let any amount of conoession be mado, in preference to having the honor and reputation of the country again tarnished, by a repetition of tnob-law pro?'<-.-dingv unworthy of the peoiile of Illinois, ami disgraceful to the American character at home j and abroad. ' II.. ' Mr Btiinflt'i Letter* rntm Bnnp*. Foot ot Mo.it Bla\c, 27th Aug., 1Mb. IIeie w o are, a; the foot of the eternal glariers of Munt Blanc, alter a journey of several weeks from London, passing through Belgium?coining up the Rlnno?visiting Wiesbaden, Baden Baden, and alt the other German watering places, where kings, princes, plnyers, painters, and pickpockets mi* all familiarly together. In the hurry and bn?'le of preparing to cross the Alps into Italy for a few weeks, it is impossible to give any description ol the curious men, women, and things we iiave st-tsii in our delightful tour through Germany and Switzerland. Mrs. B. ha# just started to ascend 'lie Montcuvert (Green PcHk) to get a view of the mer-dc-gluct, (icy sen), and see the highest peaks nn?L glaciers ot Mont Blanc. I doubt whether she will go far, so steep, precipitous and frightful it appears. Around them is a bustle of travellers. English. Irish. Frr>nrh guides, horses, donkies, mules, kc., tic. Such is the appearance of the beautiful village of Chamouni, at the fot-tof Mont Blanc. I have much to eay of the German watering places?their curious state of society?their amusements?their singular mixtures of prince and ped- ! lar?tlu ir gambling house?, <ipen day and night, Sunday included. These singular places of fashionable resort are crowded by English of all ranks ?probably 100,000 English spend $10,000,000annually on the continent, in a way of life, and stylo of soo'ety, totally diiierent from their own country. The Russian nobility also (lock to these watering places?and a few travellers sometimes fro.n the United States are discovered, like gems in a hay-stack. A Russian Princess, covered with diamonds and laci, expressed her utter astonishment one evening in Baden Baden, at the singular whiteness of our complexion. She had always supposed that all the Americans were perfectly black. I have taken full notes of the state of society at the German, French and Swiss watering places, and will give u full and curious description of these places of resort, in contrast with those at Saratoga, and others in the United States. They j have features very different from ours?some- \ times better, sometimes worse. I must postpone : this account till 1 return to Paris. During our tour we have met with but few Americans I understand from thg hotel keepers, that thete have not been many American travellers since the revulsion of 1837 Before that took place, in one ofthe ho'els in Geneva, the Hotel des B -rgues, about fify to seventy would sometimes sit down to dinner on the same Hay. Wo have j fallen in with only two American families, and have seen the records of probably three or four others I have seen the name of John Harper and family, from New York, at the various hotels ?anJ also on the records of the one here. Sitting down at the loot of Mont Blanc, seems to excite similar emotions to those we feel at the foot ?f the Falls of Niagara. They are both sublime?both excite the like emotions?both speak, as it were, irom the womb of eternity to the innermost recesses of the soul. The first view 1 had of this mighty mass was terribly magnificent; it was last evening, from the bridge of St. Mar- : tin's, twelve miles from the base of the mountain. Its magnificent peaks, towering far above the clouds, were shining in the evening sun, clear, white, cold, and awful. The sight came so sud- : ded!y, so unexpectedly upon me at the turn of the road, that it made me start back in awe, wonder, or fear, t was a singular feel ng, and can only be paralleled by those produced by the terrible rush of Niagara Falls. I have many things to say of the singular transition state of society, government, religion, &c., 1 throughout those portions of Europe which I have seen, but I shall reserve them till we return to I'aris. Steam, electricity, railroads, commerce, and jommon senso are making vast and mighty changes in Europe. I was not asked for a passport from London to Geneva, and yet I passed through half a dozen kingdoms, and principalities of all sizes. The greatest of revolutions his be- ; gun?a revolution of peace, caused by railroads, 1 tec. I have much to say of these matters at another time. Atfairs in California?We have received from our attentive correspondent, several interesting letters from California. They are not quite so late as those received nt Washington, j but they will prove interesting to our readers. | We shall publish them in a day or two. The following notice attached to one of the despatches we give today:? Died in tho town of Sonoma, San Francisco. Csliforrin on the 8;h of May, 1*46. Capt. William Smith, aged 7S years Ho was bom in Prince George county, Virginia ; was for many years a North West trader, from Hit! port of Boston. For many years has lived on tioard tho vessel* on this coast, belonging to Vessra Bryant li stnrgrs, of Boston, their capUins having orders to re:eive him en a passenger from ship to ship, year after (ear, as they arrived. The old man, although having lome property in Maisarhusetts, could not be persuaded o live on thore, until within tho last two or three years. Comm?* Council.?Both Boards are expected .o hold n meeting this evening. Sporting Intelligence. Trottiho ?There will be great sport to day over the Centrwville Course. Two of the fastest horses in the world are to contend- James K. Polk and Moscow J. K Pulk is owned by a gentleman in Tennessee. He has made a mile in harness in less time than any horse now living?in 3m 33s ?which was over the Beacon Course, in the fall of 1&44, against the Fairy Queen. He distanced the Quean the first heat, in the time given abovo. He was afterwards taken to the South, and was matched with the. great pacer Tippecanoe, for $IU00 aside, two mile heats. He won this match very easy, performing the distance in 6:20. J.

Zack says, nolent voltnt. The new drama of " The Fireman's Daughter," written expressly for thi? theatre, which has had such a remarkable run, will again be presented this evening In addition, the tragedy of " Macbeth'' will be played, not as it sometimes is expurgated and cut to pie. ps, but as it was originally writ'en by the author Miss Mary Duff a younir iady whoso talents aro of a very high order, and spoken of very highly by ; our southern exchanges, will sustain the character of 1 Lady Macbeth. The combination of two such excellent pla\ ? in one evening jsvill suffice to till the house Miss Crauford. so well known and highly esteemod by the patrons of the Greenwich, will take a benefit to-morrow evening. The mere announcement of this fact will cause a jam. Castle Garden.?Tha liberal managers of this delightful resort have kindly set apart the proceed* of this even, ing'i entertainment for the benefit of the orphans, and we re confident that our public will assist the benevolent , designs of the proprietor* by being present. In addition to the usual attractive feature* ot the Garden, the Acrobat family have tendered their services, and Me*>r?. Hoiinan, Goodwin and Oldfield will appear in some of their : most celebrated songs and dances The Undo troupe of i Ethiopian Minstrels will give u scrie* ol songs, parodies, kc . arnj Professor Eierstein will exhibit his remarkable ' tlispla) of dissolviug views and Chines* fireworks, which huveao much delighted the thousands who have Keen tl.eru. Tbe admission to the Garden is but 60 cent*, and m m trust that tho>.? u ho would not go iniiuenced by charitable motives will, for theirowii iutt*rent. nut nmit tn visit a pi ice wheie such a variety 01' truly en'.ertmming and attractive features are presented. Dowcav Circus.?The feats of tho Acrobat family at this place are certainly astonishing, and that they are considered so by the crowded audiences who witness them, is best attested by the frequent and loud applause attendant upon their appoarances. The graceful exhibitions of athletic games by the other performers are not excelled in merit by those ot any in the country, and indeed the world might be challenged to And their supe- , riors. A new spectacle, in which the whole force ot the equestrian troupe is to be brought into play, is coon to be . produced, aHd from what we understand in relation to it, wo expect that it will be gorgeous in the extreme. For ' this evening a great bill is offered. W o. Dale, the great chief of horsemen, from England, will shortly, it is expected, add his talent to the torces of the company. Howe's Mammoth Circus.?After being visited by thousands at the State fair, this great establishment will open at Utica en the 3-Jd and 23d inst., when the people of that city will have a chance of seeing the extraor- i dinary performances of the celebrated Madame Macarte. the most graceful and perfect female rider in the country, , a< well as the performances of the Swiss brothers, Dan llice, Mr. Cole, and tho other numerous company of this concern Madadatne Macurte is the subject of praise I an.I admira'ion by all who have seen her, and she is ac- | knowledged to be the most graceful, fascinating, bravely , fift*d mrliite that ever appeared in this country on horaeack Her performances are truly astonishing, aud must be seen to be appreciated. Wal*ct st aket Thratr?, Philadelphia.?The Keans appear to be received with the sjme enthusiasm at this theatre, as they were when among us, aad are supported by a powerful and attractive stock company This evening Shakspeare's play of " As You Like it,'1 ! will be produced?lhe characters of Jacqnes and Rosalind by Mr. and Mrs. Kean After which the laughable farce of the " Man without a Head." Abch street Theatre, Philadelphia.?Mr. Burton, the Manager, has beon long engaged in the preparation of the appointments to the play of " Richard tho Third," and to-night it is to be put upon the cta^c in a manner which has hardly a precedent for splendor in thii coun try. The oiigiu*l text of Shakspeare 11 to be preferred throughout the play. Mr. and Mrs Wallack will appear in the characters of " Gloucester" and " Queen Elisabeth." Ma. Bellamy ? It was reported in town yesterday and published in all the Sunday paper* except the HrrtlJ, that Mr. Bellamy, of the Park Theatre, one of the most alerting and talented actors in the city, died on Saturday laat, from apoplexy. We are happy in being able to atate that the rumor i? unfounded, and that Mr. Bellamy It ronvalesccnt. Ha will very soon Rive the public ocular demonstration of the lact, on the boards of Ike Park. Ma. An:** **.? The first nppoarance of this celebrated American magician i* anxiously looked for by the public, and we are happy to learn that it is not far oft ? From the reputation he has acquired abroad, he will probably introduce a new era in tho magical art in this country. Some of his delusions seem almost to confirm the idea that he is in league with bis most Satanic Maj??ty. Mormonlam In New York. Jamks J. Stra.no, the prophet, and successor of Joe Smith, preached yesterday, at Temperance Hall, Grand Street, next door to the Broadway House, before some of his followers. The Prophet appears to be a pretty flippant sort of speaker, and evidently has studied the scriptures with a good deal of care and attention?as he had little hesitation in pointing out chapter and verse to support the Mormon doctrin*, prenclied by him. There was a slight sprinkling of female Mormons, or Mormonesses among the emigre nation; and previous to the Prophet's arrival, (at lOj o'c.ock,) we had the gratiticatron to hear a few very good tunes on the piano forte?"Yankee Doodle, and the "Cracovienne," by a Mormon lady. After roadmu from John's gospel, Chap. 14, the Prophet remarked that after a short tour, he arrived in Boston on Thursday, and attended a meeting of the Saints?received a letter, stating tha' much dissension hail been caused by the secederi tn >ew York, particularly tbe Brigamite* It 1 cu said in the Boiton paper* that O.

It could not be expected that our respectable citixans would take their ladies ar.d families into a place situated in such a neighborhood as that is?surrounded on all sides, as it was, by houses ol the worst reputation, fend populated by the frailest and mo*t polluted part of humanity. The Opera has never bad an oppoituuity to proi|>er among up, on this account It cannot be disputed thnt there is as much musical taste in New YorH| the fourth city in the woild in wealth, intelligence, enterprise and population, as in the large cities of fc.urope ; bat the same sense of taite and refinement which ourtftizens possess, will not permit them to visit an Open house surrounded with immoral and contaminating influences. Let an Opera house be erected in a resectable and fashionable p*rt of the citt, and there can be no dpnbt it will be well patronized by a discriminating and Intellectual audience. The site on which Nihlo's recently stood is of thia description. It is central, respeeteble, aud fashionable, and is hallowed by the remembraooa of many pleasant and happy evenings spent there by the elite of our uptown population It is a stigma to our great city to have no building of this dencription, and we owe it to ourselves to remove it as soon as possible

We trust that every difficulty in the way of this project will be removed, and that we will soon see orected on this site au Opera house that trill be a feature to the city, and a monument of our raflnement and taste. CaMiixio Sivohi.?In looking over our foreign exchanges we noticed the following in the Boulogne Newt of August 13th, relating to fflvori, the great artist, who is soon to visit us. It appeal* by the extract that his influence on a transatlantic audience is really tremendous : ?" We had intended, Indeed'we were prepared to give a detailed contpte rmdu of thia enrhentia* musical fea?t, " Philharmonic Porietv Concart," provided for us bjr the liberal committee of this deaorvinsr association Sivori, the living embodiment of the departed Paganini. attracted a fashionable and crowded audit"rr ; and I>> his peiformance evoked an enthusiasm, approaching absolutely to frenzy. No sooner had be ma 'e his appearnnoe, than as if by common accord, a silence prevailed so general, an to offer to the inspired artiat a compliment more gratifying than the most voc.ferous plaudits. The Concerto in C , bis own eomposition, in which he gave a foretaste of what bis violinic powera were susceptible, charmed not only the ear, but thehMrd, and the heart With Sivuri. a deep intention goes hand in hand with the greatest mechanical perfection. His tone is powerful and broad? his Cantanile touches the heart?whilst hi* Bravura, bold and stirring, never oversteps the boundaries of nature, and even in the execution of the most extraordinary difficulties, an astonishing clearness and purity of intonation are preaorred. He never loses sight of the gravity of att, and never oversteps the limit* of the imaginative and the heautifal. With the glowing inspiration which lives in the artist, a quiet calculating seriousness reigns over his exterior ; no movement of his face discloses the inner feeling. Rut when he takes up hi* instrument, and the how awecpe over its strings?then he divulges most eloquently tho passion which moves him?then he exult* in enthuaium ?then he weeps?then again he smiles? till, whon the last sigh from his violin has gone up to its home among the ipheres, and thn audience shout with delight, he steps down from the oirliestrm with the same calm bearing with which he made hi* entrance." Sti-tviciant Institute.?Mr. Lover will give the first of hi* " Irish Evenings" at this place. These entertainment*, designed to illustrate the national characteristic*. superstition*, mirth, and melody of his country, will lie a novelty in this country; and tbe wide-spread reputation of their originator, is the beat token of their iuccets. Tar ArOLi.o^io-ii.?Let our Brooklyn friends not forget that these prodigies of genius will favor them with another concert to-morrow evening. It may be confidently stated, that the world cannot produce five children of the same age who can compare with these children of New Yerk; and indeed there i* miny an old musical head who would be glad to exchange his proficiency and musical skill for that of the Masters Uullock and Cole. TAncawact-c ?The grand Oratorio of the " Seasons'' is to be brought out this evening at this place.

Bui* ; or a Yeono Oi?l.?A few morning* *lnce, a gentleman, the father of family, retidlng In the upper portion of tha city, by chance, intercepted a letter, a ldre?*ed to hia daughter, aaweet, and apparently innocent, marten of tome seventeen lummen, which too painfully indi i cated that tome designing villain had made her the victim of hia artifice*, and that the had already, in all pro, bability, progressed iu tho patha of ain and aliame he' yond hope or remedy The letter seemed to show that the intrigue bad been for tome time m progress. ami that her seducer wa? a wealthy merchant, iloiug butin??s i downtown, to whom the wn iu the habit of giant I ing day time interview*, at tome of the well-kuowu heusci of assignation, which infest our city. The bate epistle doted With an uppointmeut far that day, lur a meeting of the partie* at the corner of Canal and 8ut! llran street*. The intelligence, aa may be supposed, fell with nearly cruihtng weight upon the agonized paient, who had, however, sufficient pru.lance to te-teal the note and place it within hia daughter'* reach, who read it of course, without suspecting that htr father'! eye had first permed the guilty liue*. Immediately after making the discovery, tlie parent aought the couueel and advUe of the alderman of the ward, in which he re1 tided, and with whom, It leemi, ho wa? on lerma of Intimacy; aad after consultation, it was Anally agreed that tho alderman referred to, ahould accompany l jur. , to the corner of Sullivan and Canal atreeti, ! a*i.l await thfl d?iinu?ment 111 iRrAnUnr* with their arraugement, the afflicted father upon approaching the place ansigned for a meeting of the partica, stepped into a public houte where he could survey the scene, and readily learn what should tranipire, and Alderman proceeded on hia unpleasant minion alone. He wax not kept in auapenae, for upon reaohingthe deaiguated place for the meeting, he found Miss already in attendance, and apparently impatient at the delay of her expected companion. The alderman immediately addressed the infatuated girl, and informed her that he wa* acquainted with the object of her risit to the spot where he had met with her, and i.dvised her to return Inatantly to her home, aa the individual whom she expected to meet, was most assuredly seeking her ruin: and that the course the was pursuing would inj evitably end in her own deilruction and the disgrace of her family. The poor creature apjieared much afldctod, ; and promising to retrace her ateps to the paternal roof, the alderman took hia leave, rejoined her father, I and apprised him ef the reault of his miasion. The father, however, still doubting the sincerity of the protestations of his erring child, persuaded Alderman to 1 follow her. After tracing the young Magdalen through several streets, he finally saw her enter a house of doubtful repute in 8t. John's Lane. Hasteuing to the door, the alderman also applied for admittance, but was refused by the portress, on the ground that he was not the gentleman who was expected, and it was not until he nad declared that he was a magistrate, or in other words, one of the City Fathers, and demanded an entrance by virtue of his office, that the door was unbarred. On proceeding up stairs, Al?l. was ushered into a sumptuous apartment, furnuhed in costly style, where he again met the object of hia search. The wretched girl, overcome with oxcitemeot and emotion upon seeing him, instantly fainted Aid. with the gallantry for which he is proverbial, sprang forward to support her sinking form, and he was in the act of resuscitating her when a loud knocking at the door attracted his attention, which he presumed to be that of the merchant by whom the young lady had been led antray who was demanding admission. On opening the door, lo ! and behold, a certain ex-captain, whose " star," through the influence of the Aldeiman, had become eclipsed, stood before him. Had a bomb shell exploded beneath the Alderman's nose, it is douhlfut whether his consternation could have b?en greater. The recollection that the ex-captain was his deadly foe, that he had caused his dismissal from office for certain allegod extra-official conduct towards the \1 dermau, on account ot interfering witu tne movement* ot one of Mother Miller'* pantalette girls in Church street, and then so soon to be caught in a house of bad repute, aud withal in such an equivocal position, proved almost too much for the Alderman more especially ao ai the ex-captain rode a high hone, and reminded him io term* not to be mistaken, "that one good turn deserved (mother." But few additional facts were gathered, except that in the moment of exci'emeut and confusion io the house, the poor misguided female was nearly forgotten, anil another instructive chapter added to tho record of life and time* in New York.

There was uncommon deliberation used in eating , nearly all the royageurs hail Anished eating, when they rose IVom the table. Something quite uncommon. The servants wore pure white linen dresses ; they waited quietly, brought cups not more than half tilled, so one coul 1 lift a cup to one's mouth without leaving a dripping trail of tea or coffee on one's dress ; in other words they did not go on the run, and slop the tea ami coffee into tho ?>uoeis, nor i cpill gravis* on oiessex, nor tun against elbows, and make one spill his tea or gravy. Thev were attentive anil respectful, took time to do their duty, serve 1 every body, and moved'a'lout as se vants are t.iught to do around a private gentleman's table. VV'e had time enough to eat.

But our noblo vessel swept gracefully and powerfully over them, and seemed hardly to feel their beat The 1 vast machinery played equally, and as smoothly an though it had been playing in oil In examining the machinery, I was treated with that uniform courtesy, which soeoied to characterize every one of the vessel'* men. The chief engineer, Mr. Crocker, oxplained everything, and seemed to be so perfectly at home with hi* "plaything," that no nmount of questions disturbed him. He was a Yankee?had tried shoe-making, blacknaithing, art! clock-making, for aught I know, and during ten years had worked himself up from a fireman on a little bout, to chief engineer of the noble Atlantic.? There was one thing about the engine that struck me with a poculisr feeling. Ttoe monster leviathan marked his own movement*, and he tells you when he hat made a million of revolution*; he mattes no mistake ?and when his fore-Sager moves it is to tell tin master ho has turned round those fearful paddles ten hundred thousand times ! > " Now," said the gentlemanly Capt.
