Since the snivel of the account* which reached u? at tha clow oi our preceding report, by the Hibemla s'eainer.via Kugland, our market ha* worn a very aniniatoJ uspect. The ceoviction generally entertained that the import* of Cotton from the United S.atei will not materially I dd to our stock* for no me 1 .p.a of time, ha* led to a revival in busineaa, an I been productive of great activity in the transaction*. Tlio buy ing ha* been daily to a good extent, and utmost exclusively for oeusumption ; price* have alio undergone an improvement, and the attention of dealer* being chiefly directed to middling doacriptiona, these from their scarcity, have advanced fa. whilst other qualities have improved only f i on previous quotation*, ex- 1 repting, however. *ii|>erior grade*, which remain with out change. The ojmration* of upeculatori have not been ol sufficient importance to contribute to the amendment < that ha* taken place, for although our stock on hand ia very moderate, the present comparative high prices, and the Arm attitude of holders, deter them from launching into extensive purchases. We were without any advices from the United States posterior to those received by the llibernnt. The packet ahipa Argo and Baltimore have since arrived ; the account* by them were prior to thoie i ulieady in our imsaeision ; but at the moment of our going to press, we received the despatches of the Great Western steamer of the '10th ult.

We hare received 87 packages Bees Wax Irom New Vork and St. Domingo. Hides.? I- mm the tenor of the last account* received from La Plata, some shipment* of Hides may shortly be expected to come forward ; our market has, therefore, been very dull since last report, only 1300 Buenos Ayrcs, dry, having been sold at 75>{ c, and 400 New Vork, wet suited, at 3% c. per half kit. duty paid. Rice.?Our stock of Carolina being quite exhausted, the sales consist of lots in second hands, amounting to 250 tierces at f 31 13>i to 39 per 50 kil, duty (f 1 1 37i<) paid Some speculation hat taken place in East India, and 176 tons, to arrive, found purchasers at f 26 to 26 for home use. We have received 60 tierces from New1 Vork ex Argo. Tallow.?There has been a good enqui! ry for Tallow at an advance on previous rates, the salos consisting ot 130 casks Russia yellow, partly to arrive, at f 61 60 to 62 60, and 150 casks New Vork at f 63 to 63 50 per 60 kil, duty paid. A lot of 91 bbls American Lard found buyers at f 68 for consumption. The Argo and Baltimore, from New Vork, brought in 69 casks '1'aJlow and 426 bbls Lard. Whalebone.?Scarcely any demand hus been muuilcNted in this article, which, owing to the lmgr amount of stock, and the flatness in the transactions wears a downward aspect. The only sales to report are 3 tons north-western fishery at f 3 40 to 2 46, and 4 tons southern at f 3 5.'t* to 3 60 per X kil, for consumption. North-western fishery is offered at f 3 35 deliverable in the last three months of the year.

At the laat Montivilliera market the'average price was f 68 60 par sack of 900 kil. We are now bare of foreign growth ; the import duty at present is 37)*' o. per hectolitre by national or favored flags. No change Las taken place in American Flour, which we therefore quote as previously at f 33 60 per bbl in bond. We have received 3000 bbls from New Vork, which had already been sold. Woods ? The transactions have been to a fair i extent during the past week, the sales consisting of 136 tons St Domingo Logwood at f 6 40, 16 tons Supan Wood at f 18 60. and altcrwards resold at f 13 60 to 30, and 11 tons Porto Rico at f 9 76 por 60 kil, duty pain.

We quote Broach aud Burnt at rs. 80 to 83)*' per candy?which is about rs. IS' lower than last month Other sorts are without change. The quality of the cotton now at market is inferior. Cotton Manufactures.?The market for these has been, till now. almost entirely closed, and we have, consequently, hut few transactions to record. The only sales, indeed, ' communicated to us are the following: 360 pieces grey lougcloths, 38 yds by 46 in., rs. 6 4 per piece; 600 do. do. , 39 yds by 39 in., rs. 6 4 per piece; 160do. grev domestics, 00 yds. by 36 in , rs 6 6. It is expected that the favorable , character ot the monsoon will lead, ere long, to a renew- ' al of business transactions on an extensive scale, unless counteracted by a renewal ot the scarcity of money. | Cochineal has slightly declined; we quote the article no, minal, at rs 3 per pound. Exchange.?The money market having become easier, exchange on England has given way Since our last, bills have been sold at 9s. 0'4d downwards, and the rate of transactions for this date may be quoted at Is. llj?d. to 3s. per rupee, at six months sight On Calcutta, at sixty days, ths rate is at pur; ou Madras, at thirty days, rs. 99)?; and on China, at sixty days, rs. 306, at 388 per 100 dollars.

Rocariiti-Wt hare had a better demand lor f lannel*. at price* much the same at tbo*e of. the , previous week The Wool market ha* been alack, and the buajnea* tranracu-d hat been upen a very limited scale.

The warehouses have been rather butier during the week. Bat little doing in the Wool market. Likds.?There has been scarcely an average [quantity doing at our Cloth halli; but since the greater part of business ia chiefly transacted by direct deliveries from the manufacturer* to tho merchants, our market days do not afford ajutt criterion as to the general tone of businest, which may ba said to be much the tame as hitherto. NoTTineiiAM?The branches of the Hosiery trade which are carried on in thj> town and its suburbs hava, with a few exception*, got considerably worse ; and lit- i tie is heard amongst the poorest class but want of work, and want of money by the small tradesmen The Bobbinnet trade may be considered as considerably impro ved, particularly in plain nets, most of the German hnttses being actively preparing for the ensuing October Laiptic fair. The Cotton Warp Lace trade keepa gradually improving, the frames being slowly put to work, while some are working long hours. The Silk branch i i Tw. v.. mmlA ~r ,Ka n.),u..i Bilk trade, which, on the whole, ii very dull. L*ic*steb.?There ii a fair average demand for the home trade ; and though it U now " between seasons," at regard* the American and continental market!, we are uuable to perceive any lymptomi in thil locality of those " diaaitroui" circumatancea which lome of the metropolitan and provincial papers declare to have reaulted to the manufacturing diitricta from the passing of free trade. Indeed there ii every proipect in thenomede- i maud continuing good -, while from the country handa I having been mostly engaged in the flelda during the last month, little or no work has been brought in from the villages, and stocks of wrought hose are, consequently, verv low. Trices of material remain stationary and ! firm. Bsadfosb.?There is a full supply of all kinds of combing Wool in the market, but sales are difficult to effect, | prices generally ruling too high to induce the spinners I to buy freely. The demand lor yarns continues to improve. both for export and home consumption We are glad to learn that spinners geneially are obtaining an advance; spinning for many months past has been a most ruinous trade. There is a steady business doing in all kinds of Piece Ooods suited to the approaching season ; manufacturers are lor the most part making to order. Trices are fully maintained. Avr.aagk Taica or Svoab.?The average price of brown or muscovado, computed from the returns made in the week ending the 1st day of September, 184#, exelusive of the duties of customs paid or payable thereon, on the importation thereof into Oreat Britain;?From the British possessions in America 3is 3\J; Mauritius 33s 6 ; East Indies 33s 7d ptr c.wt. The everage price of the three foregoing description! of eugar is 33a 7d per cwt. The laox Tbade.?The present state of the iron trade in the South Staffordshire district is as satisfactory as it has been tor many years past. The very extensive and increased demand tor home consumption for carrying out the various railway projects, with the requirements of the export trade, are calling into requisition all the imnroved fir.ilitiAi of nrorhictinn. and must kssn thorn fufiy employed for ?ome ye?r?. The order books, both at the larger and smaller wdrkt, are well filled with or ders, in many instances of such a Datura as will, in their completion, extend over a much longer period than ordinary . and fresh contracts are brought forward every week for various requisites for railway constniction.? These are generally for heavy articles; and though a very considerable quantity of pig iron was sold and distributed among the works in the neighborhood at quarter day last, yet those masters who are entirely dependent on purchases And their stocks diminishing more rapidly thsnthev had calculated, and in many instances nave been un ler the neceseity of giving much higher pricee for extended supplies The uncalled for reduction that was submitted to during the laet quarter, and which wae sanctioned by no equivalent reduction either in wages or material!, may therefore he considered entirely at an end ; and from the well known fact that all the principal holders of stocks parted w ith them at quarter day. and the certainty that no reduction can be expected either In wages or materials during the winter months, it would not lie a matter of surprise if an advance should be declared at the next quarterly meeting of the trade.? ! Due consideration will,however, be given, before taking 1 such a step, to the effect if might have upon the exports, j which fotm so serious a pert of our consumption. At | the present rates of .t'S for pig iron, and ?10 for manufactured, no possibla dinger can arise ; and we trust . that no nth movement will check the increasing de- ' mand which may legitimately be expected from the various alterations in duty that have lately been mado upon the admission of British iron into the ports of foreign nations.

Myers, received an anonymous communication, charging his sister-in-law with adultery, and pointing to Mr. D. Marvin Hoyt asjthe guilty party. The writer requested an interview; and offered to produce the clearest proof of the truth of the charge; this proof was furnished, and was such, that eveucol Myers, with all his devotion to his sister, could not resist it. Intercepted notes were produced, and the most conclusive evidence was exhibited of guilty intercourse for months, if not for years. The futher of Mrs. Myers was immediately written for, and satisfied of his daughter's guilt, removed her from the city. Col. Myers also wrote to bis brother, informing him minutely of all the circumstances. Thunderstruck at the infidelty of her whom he had ever loved, honored, and cherished, and stung to madness with the thought of .his honor wounded in the tenderest point, Mr. Myers hurried to Richmond, burning to glut nis vengeance where he had been so foully wronged. To oscafie notice, however, he left the cars at the Junction, about 31 miles from Richmond, and there taking a horse provided for him, he entered the city on Bunday after the shades of night had falleu; and as soon as the morning light enabled him to make sure of his victim, he rushed to Hoyt's chamber, and discharged the contents of a loaded pistol in his brain. Mr. Myers was accompanied by his brother, who faithfully stood by him in this retributive act of justice. They both sui rendered themselves to the civil authorities, and the case is now undergoingjudieial investigation. Thus have the guilty paitiea expiated their awfVil offence against the Taws of Uod and man. He in an untimely death; and she in the pangs that must rend her ' bosom whenever the image of her injured husband or ! dying lover ate brought to mind i Mr. Hovt is not yet dead, and it is possible that he may linger several days; but the chances of his recovery . are as one in a hundred. The pistol was a revolver, and was discharged twice; the first ball passed through the fleshy part of the logs and occasioned but little injury; | the second took effect just over the left eye, and has been removed by the process of tiepanning. The examination has been continued until Wednesday next; and the accused with hit attendants, Colonel Samuel S. Myers and Mr William Burr, have been admitted to bail in the sum of ten thousand dollars each Hoyt denies his guilt, and when he supposed himself in extremis, he declared that the last words he uttered should be to proclaim the innocence of Mrs. Myers. The public ascribe these declarations rather to the gallantry of the genflemau, than the real innocence of the lady i This evening there is a report in circulation, how true we know not, that Mr Hoyt has made a will,and left Mrs. Myers a legacy of $30,Oou. It is said that Col. Pollard, the father of the lady, ?'?'I u fka ^ilv |a.Hov iiiBI in time tn find a father's intended retribution en ticipated by a husband's vengeance. This is not a community where the dearest rights and tendaresttias can be infringed with impunity. Another Accatint. The following is an extract of a private letter from a respectable gentleman in Richmond, relative to this affair. Richmond, Sept. 2bth, 1846. Mr Dear Sir ?I have to communicate t>.? r.Ost peinful and aftliciiDg intelligence, in repaid <* our poor friend Hoyt, whu is new lying in hi. bluod upon a bed from which, in all probability, he will never rise again. His room was entered this morning by three persons? the first was Mr. llurr, who bioughl him a paper to sign, pledging himself to leave Richmond immediately, and never to return to this city uuuer the penalty of a forfeiture of liis life, lie refused to sign it, saying that he had been guilty of no crime-iadeed of nothing of which he was ashamed, and that he had no business els#where. Thereupon, Col Samuel Myers, of this placa, entered, followed by his brother William. The lormerhad a large stick in his hand, which he struck upon the floor violently saying at the same time, very emphatically. "You mus! sign that paper without delay or something to that effect, if not in the exact words 1 use. He answered, " Gentlemen, 1 shall decline signing that paper." William Myers instantly drew a revolver and onmmenced firing on H , who had risen on his bed whan the two last individuals made their appearance. Tba first time the trigger was drawn (the pistol was placed within aha ut a foot, perhaps, of H's person,) the weapon annpped. H. attempted to close, but belore he could do so. the weapon was discharged and he received a halt" in the head, just over the right eye. He was bUndcd instantly by the guab of blood which followed the wound, yet still attempted to defend hiaaselt, when he received a second tieli. which passed entirely- through the fleshy pert of one thigh, and buried itself in the other H. says that he leit at that moment? doubtless from the loss of blood, which flowed veiymrofeeely?as if he was suspended in the air and could not reach the ground. He then fell, and rolled dawn (he steps in his chamber, to the lower floor. The c ause of this horrible scene was jealousy on the parte/ Wm. Myers, who supposed that Hoyt and his wife had been guilty of crim. con. Alter his fall, they were going out of his room, when H. said?believing the worils to be the last that he ever kiuiM ntfar? ' I am innnront cn ia ilia " Thia affair t*ok place at about a quarter to seven thia morning. * * * 1 arrived hero at hair-past five, r. M. 1 found H a? perfectly cool and calm as if nothing of any great consequence had occurred ; 1 never saw more nerve exhibited by any man in my life. He gave me the above account of the matter, which 1 have related as nearly as possible , in his own words. The physiciaus in attendance do not allow the slightest hope of his recovery?they consider it a br.re possibility. Public opinion at present is against our poor friend, but I and others are perfectly convinced of his entire innocence in regard to the impure crime with which he is charged. P. 8. Tuesday Morning, 29th inst, o'clock.?He has slept during all the nigbt, waking only three or four times, when he would talk to me in his usual manner.? Dr. Carmichael has just called to see him, the wound is doing well, but he seems to be in a state of wonder and surprize that he is still living, end in such an excellent condition He complains only of a bruited sensationno acute pain whatever, and on being asked by the first person who entered his room, what was the matter, reElied that "that he could hardly tell, except that he bad een shot ; that he had no idea whatever of the extont of the injnriei he had received, but aupposed the wounds were mortal."

The Furtl|i> ?tw?-lu liAe Dee In uu? Country. > The European advices receive*! by the Great Western, are, in a commereial point of view, highly important, as much so, as any receiv- j cd for many months- Our principal agr cultural staples were in active demnnd in Gnat P.ritain, and rapidly improving in prices. Themai'<tets were in a very healthy state, and. the sales were princi- ; pally to the trade. The manufacturing districts were unusually activ?, and there bad been a slight improvement in prices for many articles. On the whole, the news is imore favorable than we anticipated, and we see nothing in the prospective likely to prevent us from reaching the highest point of prosperity. Prices for all kinds of breadatntfs advanced here on the receipt of the last European news, and the advance will be strengthened by this arrival. It is pretty genvtaliy understood that the potato crop of Great Britain, will this year, prove a failure, and this alone will be sulfi- j cient to open the markets of the United King- ; 1 dom to all kinds of grain from this country. The crops on the continent will not purtico for much .1 .1? I?-I -/--.ii nnrl the want* more man uic wu? ?.? , of the consuming classes oL England and Ireland, beyond their own supplies, moat be met by ship- I inents from this country. Our Indian corn is [ rapidly getting into favor wihh the poorer classes ; of Europe, and it must ere long become a very J important article of food. T!h?y have made the ' discovery that it is good to es2; and now that we j have settled that point, the e is very little doubt , but that it will soon become a ,very important arti- j . cle of exportation. Our facilities for the cultivation of this grain are immense, and we can sup| ply the consumption of the world. We are a wonderful people, and our lolls cast in a great country. Allah be praised. Commercial Movements?Oar Prospects and Destiny. Since the favorable change in the temperature of the weather, there has been a very great im! proveinent in business, andfthe greatest activity prevails in the commercial part of the city. Our hotels are filled with strangers, principally merchants front the country, And so far as we can judge from the appearand of things, there is a much better business doing than was anticipated, and more demand fbr goods than was expected, considering the changes which are soon to be made in oqj Commercial system, whicVi are snnnosed will have a very im j portant influence upon prices. We should suppose that the reduction in prices on most of our staple articles of importation, which the new tariff will for a lime, undoubtedly produce, would have had a tendency to restrict trade this fall, but such is not the fact. There is as much doing as if our commercial system was permanently established upon a basis which had ever been in existence, and we hear no fears ex- j pressed in relation to the changes. This market j is well supplied with all kinds of foreign fabrics ; our auction sales are frequent and extensive, and the importers are doing a safe and profitable I business. Prioes for many articles are somewhat 1 reduced, compared with previous seasons, which we attribute more to the full supply than to any danger of a depreciation before another season opens. The position of our foreign affairs has very lit} tie influence upon commercial matters, and the | embarrassment of the Government in relation to its finances have very little effect upon our 1 money markets. Capital in abundance for all le! gitimate purposes, can bo easily obtained in any I quantity at very low rates of interest. Every one appears to move onward very cautiously, and j there are indications of prosperity throughout the country generally, exceeding those of any period within the past five years. Protxstant Episcopai. Convention.?The sixty-second convention of the Episcopal church, is now in session in St. John's Chapel. Our readers will perceive by the report in another column, , that the question of paying the bishop's salary out of the Episcopal fund, is again brought forward, j The probability is that this session will be as I stormy and protracted, and marked with similar features as was that of last year. ImmieaTfun ubav v ty/"? iTtM Am appival /va?m i Matanzas brings no important news from that place, but reports the arrival of the brig Gregorie, I in eleven days from Sisal, bringing news from ; Yucatan to the 28th August, confirming that i hitherto received. In a copy of the Siglo XIX, ! we find a decree of the Congress, declaring:? 1st That Yucatan recognizes and proclaims the pro : nunciamento of ths city of Guadalajara, of the 90th o May Jd. That Yucatan will continue in the same position of self-government, until by an acknowledgment by the general government of the Inviolability of the treaties of 1048, she can with honor return to her allegiance. 8d. That Yucatan, convinced that General Santa Anna has given at various times proofs of his patriotism, and has promulgated the most liberal sentiments, recognizes him, and proclaims him as chief and director of the Mexican republic. U pon the publication of this defcree, a grand celebration was held in Merida, and General Ba- | sadre was filed by the people. Highly Impost ant peom Mexico.?The Wash- i ington Union, of the 2Sth ult., gravely and offi| cially announces that Santa Anna spells Anna I with two n's. __________ Musical Intelligence. AanivAL or Sivoai.?This extraordinary violinist, tha Paganini of the day, arrived yesterday in the Great Western, after a most tempestuous passage. It seemed as if old Neptune had organized a full orchestra to give the great artittt a grand musical entertainment on the ; big, broad Atlantic We are of opinion that he never ; before heard auch music ; the Great Western was tha great violin, and her rigging the strings, and tha maestro I of tha ocean was not satisfied with performing his master > piece on one string?the whole were hardly sufficient for him. Sivori's large, black and expresaiva eyes sparkle when he tells of this two days serenade by Nep" | tune and his orchestra, from the top of a big wave. It | was thought at one time that old Neptune intended to keen Sivori in his embraces, and not let him come to America; but ha ia here, and will give hi* first grand | concert on Monday, the 6th inst.,at the Tabernacle. LcoroLD Da Mtvaa.?The grand concert of the " lion ; pianist" takes place tomorrow evening at the Tabernacle. Ma. Loraa'i Sacoxn Irish Evam^o.?Another crowded and fashionable audience honored Mr. Lover's second entertainment, last evening, at the Stuyvesant Institute. 1 Good as the first was, last evening's was decidedly richer ; and we cen only testify, without going into its merits, to j the warm applause with which Mr. Lover was continually | end very deservedly greeted. His anecdotes and flashes 1 of wit end humor were delivered with such happy effect, as to keep the audience in rears oi laughter, and his | I songs, notwithstanding that his voice is not strong, were sung gracefully and sweetly. There cannot be a richer treat than attending these delightful entertainments. Tna Aroi.i.ovaons.?The concert of these children last evening was attended by one of the most brilliant ' audiences ever brought together in the city, and we feel glad that children so worthy are beginning to meet with i that appreciation of their taler.'.s which they so eminent! ly merit. Each piece was enthusiastically applauded, and nearly every one was encored The common words 1 of praiee are but weak to express the terms of common- j dation due to these vuuthful performers. They undoubt1 edty are predestined to create a sensation in this country, at \ at unparalleled by any public performers, and will be | an honor to the State which gave them birth. They intend, we understand, to proceed soon to Boston, and the citizens of that place will do justice to their extraordinaI ry talenta ; but before they leave us we hope that they will give a concert in the eastern section of our town, say at Rutger'a Institute. Many residents there have ex| pressed a strong with to that effect, and we trust it may i r>e gratified. I Oeaiti.vo ov thi Alhahra?This delightful resort of beauty and fashion opens to-night, with a grand voca' and instrumental concert, under the immediate direction of Mr I.oder. The programme is filled with musical gems, and among the attractions announced are a variety of comic songs by that best of buffo singers, Mr. John Dunn. We anticipate a brilliant assemblage at the Alhamre tonight | ThMtrtrali. Ft? Theater.?Tha very brilliant audience pwaat last availing, testified in tba moat antknaiaatie mannar thair satisfaction with tha cartainljr excellent acting of Mra. Mo watt and Mr. Davenport. Tha lady haa certainly engrafted in her atyle a feature that deaervea great com' | mendation; an entira avoidance of the too hackneyed manneriema which, generally, actora and actreaaaa adopt She affects no peculiaritiea, but appeara ai though ahe identified heraelf with the character delineated. Mr. Davenport ia alao making rapid atridea towards a rank in tha profaaaion which ho haa adopted. This evening Knowlea play of the " Wife," will be performed, and the Drama of " Born to Good Luck," in which Mr. Leonard sustains the character of" O'Kalferty." This gentleman ia undoubtedly one of the beat peraonifiers of Irish cha. racteristics we have aver had amongst us, and if a little boisterousneta of manner were avoided, his acting would be indeed perfect. Aa it is, he gaina rapidly the favor of , the public. Boweby Theatbe.?Mrs. Shaw repeats to-night, at this , theatre, the character of the Countess, in Knowle's play of"'Love." The deep impression made upon the audience on Monday evening, has induced many who ware unable to obtain admission on that occasion, to deal re a repetition of the play. Mrs. Shaw haa lost nothing of that vigor which renders her acting so pleasing to the I million. She never appeared to greater advantage than i during her present engagement, ably supported aa she is, by Neafie, Clarke, Booth, Milnor, Hedaway, Mra. j Madi<oii, Mrs Sergeant, and Mrs Booth. Her engagement terminates on Saturday evening, therefore our citi ; /ens, as well aa strangers, should avail themselves of an opportunity to witness the performance of the best actress belonging to the American stage. To those who 1 appreciate a goad play, well acted, " Love," thia eve- j ning, offers inducements of no common order, to visit the ; Bower) Theatre. Mr. H. E. Stephen*, ao long favorably known to the public, makf his first appearance as William, in " Black-Eyed Susan," a part well adapted to his peculiar atyle of acting. Greenwich Theatbe.?This evening Mrs. Freer, so well known to the frequenter* of thi* theatre for her obliging and lady-like deportment, take* her benefit, and if the public render her but common juitice, it will be a benefit indeed. But modestly, not relying on her own merits, the haa secured the service of talent, and ofier* a bill of entertainment which will, a*ide from other consideration*, fill the home from pit to dome. Mr. Wardell, the great imitator of Rice, Mr. Grosvenor, from the London concerts, Miss Mary Duif, and Mis* Crauford, will all perform, and the local drama of the "Fireman's Daughter" will be produced. Knowle*' play of "Virginius" will be acted with the whole strength of the company, and Miss Robinson will appear in one of her favorite dances. The evening will conclude with the comedy of "The Dummy." We trust that the West End will turn out tn matte on this occasion. Madams Augusta and the Ballet.?Madam* Augusta, who has lately arrived from France, is accompanied by an artiste of high rank in her profession, M'lle Dissier, and a complete corps it ballet. This will be the commencement, we hope, of a new era in the Terpsichorean exhibitions ef our city. Our public have been hitherto satisfied, or at 1 least apparently so, with attractions presented by on* prominent dansrutc, but something has always been wanting, which the arrival of Madame Augusta and her , troupe will satisfy, and their engagement at any of our larger theatres will be a profitable one to the managers, > and satisfactory to the community. Tragedy has oeen latelv over-handled, and Melpomene desires time to re- , pair nor robes, tattered by the violence of her votaries ; Euterpe is satiated with the never ceasing music of her j own lute ; and now Teip?ichore must for a time hold possession of the theatrical boards. In other words, tra- ! gedy, comedy, and music are euts, while dancing is in. ! Mr Simpson, do give us the ballet as soon as possible. Bowerv Circus?Ma. Dale.?This place is filled to overflowing nightly, to witness the contest between Dale and McFarland for the championship. On the first even, ing, Mr. Dale threw himself ofT his board at the thirtyfirst somerset, and MoFarland beat him. On Tuesday Mac threw 4S and Dalo 50?we did not hear the result of last evening. Betting is very high in favor of McFarland, but Dale promises his backers that he will throw seventy before the week is out, or "perish in the next ditch." The hormemaushii) of Mr Dale is the most craceful . and wonderlul ever *een in the Amphitheatre: in thil da partment alio he haa but one rival in the world?Mr. Levi North, who appear* in the arena on Monday next. The intereit manifeated by all in the exerciaea at the Bowery , Amphitheatre, has had a tendency to bring them the ! largest and moat faahionable houses, and the seaaon thua far bid* fair to be moat fortunate to the manager. On Monday will be produoed a new divertiaement called the " Archers' festival," in which all the athletic sport* and ! game* ot " Merrie England" will be introduced. Mona. Charles, the great wreatler, i* likewise engaged at this house. Hewxs Ciacca.?It will be seen by advertisement that Messrs. Howe k Co. have altered the route to be taken ' by their Mammoth Cireus. It will be exhibited at Scho- , harie on the first of October, and at Schenectady en the ; -d We must repeat our advice to our Western friend* | not to omit the opportunity of witnessing the wonderful I feats of Madame Macarte, the French female equestrian. Thev are superior to any thing of the kind ever seen in the United States, and net to see her is not to see one of the wonder* of the world. This company numbers several more male and female equestrians, tumblers, lie. tic , who are all perfect in their way of acting. Protestant Episcopal Convention. FIRST DAT. Yesterday being the regular day fer the meeting of the Convention of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the Diocese of New York, a number of clergy and laity assembled for divine worship at 10 o'clock, A.M., in St John's Chapel, in this city, the place appointed for the session to be held.
