NEW YORK HERALD iVrw Vork, Monday, October ."V, IK Ml, The late news fiorn Kuro|??I (a Character nod Importance. Inconsequence of the >mportanco of our European sdvices, both in a commercial and political point of view, we give on the outside ol to-day's paper, lurther copious extracts from the European journals, received at the Herald ollice. These extracts will be found highly interesting and are worthy of attentive perusal. The intelligence is important in three points ol view:? lit The imported dearth of provisions in Europe. 2nd. The controvert)' respecting the marriage of the viueen gl Spain. 3rd. The a?;>ec* in which our quarrel with Mexico it viewed in Europe, and eapeeially in England. The commercial intelligence is probably the most important that has reached this country lor the last quarter of a century. The Oregon question, which brought us to the verge of a war with England, was not by any means ol such moment to the destinies of this country, as the reported dearth of provisons that at present prevails all over Europe. Nor is this importance confined to the mere pecuniary advantages that may, probably, accrue to our merchants, from having all Europe as a market where American bread stuffs will be, for a length of time, at a high premium. Its most important feature is the fact which it involves, that Europe is likely to be dependent on this country for food. This is a solemn consideration for European states nen, and oannot be without its effect on the future course of the different powers of the old world in relation to this continent. The scarcity is most felt in Ireland, where there exists the smallest chance for relief. Let us hope that the present government, which | has always boasted of its paternal afsection for that country, will now prove the sin- j ceri'y of its professions, and afford the people, not i aim", for that they do not war.t, but such employment as will yield them means of subsistence. But the dearth is not confined to Ireland or Eng- , land All Europe is complaining, and into every por' in Europe mu<t our vessels go, laden with the produce of our fertile soil. Tile t.-.itilf-e ii-x* io imnnrinnnu i? tin vcr?y respecting'bo marriage of the yi>unr Qn <01 of S >iii It.iris appear strange hat the in 1 navte of a Utile girl, fourteen years ok), should cause such commotion throughout Europe ; but such i?, notw i?hs'aoding, the fact Spain is looked upon with greedy eyes by both England and Fiance, and each was anxious to secure the hand of the young Q, teen fur one of their relatives Each t tied ' ha <1 t? out*it the other?Eng'a <1. bv apparent ind lfereiice. F ance won the game, and now Eng1 and is in the sulks at her want of luck, and calls j Iter Gall c cousin hard names; very plainly hinting that the old King of the French has resorted to chicanery tobring about a marriage between his young son and the aforesaid little girl,under whose Toyal sway the Spanish people have the felicity to live. Franee may have resorted to chicanery, but ' En land has only been beaten at her own game. She should not lose her temper, but bear her defeat with the best grace she can assume. This state of things in a monarchy is certainly a queer state of thing-. The English journals are indignant with the Mexicans for the want of unanimity that prevails among them, whilst a powerful enemy, ! like the United States, threatens the integrity of the renuhlic. They ridicule the idea of Admiral Seymour interfering with the American squadron in the Pacific. They treat the report that he had orders to that effect, as an idle rumor. The English press stems to think that Mexico deserves to have a thrashing, for her cowardice and want of spirit. The news l>y the Great Britain, although but three days later, is nevertheless looked lor with anxiety. That vessel will probably arrive in the course.of the day. Pobuc Offices it th* City.?The old Rotunda, in the Park, now known as the " Gallery of Fine Arts," does not seem to attract admiring . thousands to gaze upon the collection of paintings mere exuiuueu ; ana it is now very evident that the city could have made much better use of the building, than to appropriate it to the use for which it was given. The first objection is, that the location for the exhibition is a bad one, and the society could better afford to pay rent for a good hall somewhere in Broadway, than to hang their pictures upon the walls of the Rotunda, for one dollar a year (that being the amount paid into the city treasury for the occupation of the building,) to be looked atjonly now and then by a stran-. ( ger, who in his wanderings about the city, way lie accidentally attracted by the sign board over ! the porch. Although the place is entirely unsuited for the exhibition of specimens of art, it would, nevertheless, make public offices, a number of which are greatly needed at this time. In fact, the city , B authorities were never at a greater loss where to [ find suitable accommodations for the various public functionaries, and are now converting the old | Dead House in the Park into an office for his , Honor, Recorder Soott. The District Attorney is crowded into n back basement room of the old Alms House building. The Receiver of Taxes is accommodated in anotner basement room in the same buildiag. The City Inspector is found stowed away in a gloomy basement room of the City Hall, and the Chief of Polico of this great city, and his special aids, are also quartered in the basement ol the old Alms House buildings, which by the way, is entirely unfit for the use Of the l?ef'oreniimed important officers of the city government, more especially for the accommodation ol the chief, and officers acting under h s particular I directions, who sleep in the office, ready for duty, as well as to lake c ire of such prisoners as may be detained in confinement there ; and from the evidences we have had ot,the dampness ol tha rooms occupied I y the chief, we are perfectly satisfied that they are not fit for either officer or prisoner as sleeping apartments. Now, the Ro'unda would supply this want of good dry and light rooms exceedingly well. In it, the Chief ot Pohce and his aids, the Coroner, the Recorder, District Attorney, and the Clerk of the Court ol Sessions might doubtless have been accommodated with suitable offices. The city could bjtter afford to pay the rent of a commodious room on some public street, lor the benefit and use of the Gallery of Fine Arts, than to allow the Rotunda to be occupied lor the present purpose. B'sides all this, it will be recollected that a great deal was said at the time the Common Council voted the building lor the "Gallery," about the vast bene, (it to result to the inhabitants of our city, both grown and growing, in having this tempi : of the arts to aid in forming and maturing their tastes. sculpture, &c , Ac.; but no sooner are the premises secured and the walls adorned, than an ominous card, with "admi'tanoe 25 cents, catalogues 12} cents," meets the eye at the entrance to the build" ) in,;; so, that in fact, m-tead of being open to cttiacim generally, (netting aside subscribers,) the most extravagant charge, in proportion to what ' may be cen lor the money of any exhibition, is exacted, notwithstanding the managers enjoy ; wti.it may l>? termed a free use of the building. Under these circumstances wc repeat our suggestion, that the Rotunda can and ought to be more appropriately and profitably used as public offices, than as the "Gallery of Fine Arts." Amkricax Aftatrs it Kftni.Asn?We lenrn ' tuat a copy ol London Punch canic out m the 1!

"Who is to Blame 1"?All the merchants who had letters in the bag intended for the Cambria but which went to Can? Coil ?r? ??lfirnr ;? to blame 1" We can tell who is not to blame.? Mr. Postmaster Morris. It was not his fault that the letters were sent to Cape Cod, for he was at Albany, and letters for the Boston steamer, as a general thing, 'don't go that way. It is expect ed that after the Convention ad journs, the English mail bags will be probably labelled. , The Letter Bags of the Cambria.?The los* i letter bags for this steamer were returned to the post office of New York yesterday morning. On | opening the bags, the contents were lound un- ! damaged, and will be despatched by the Great | Western. Nival Intelligence. U. S. Ship Plymouth.?Annexed is a list of , officers attached to this vessel, which left Rio , Janeiro on the 14th of August, and arrived here 1 yesterday:? Commander, Henry Henry ; Lieutenants, Henry I)ar i cantel, Uuminick Lynch, Lewis Sartori, William May ; Surgeon, William K. McClenahan ; Assistant Surgeon, | Joseph Hopkimon ; Purser, Thomas H.

They aro coining in from all parte j of (he country, and the proipacti are, that a larger cla^s will he assembled thia winter in New York, than haa I ever before met together. The annual arrival of the itudenta haa become quite j an interesting occurrence to many in New York. Theae young men mint annually expend between two and three hundred thousand dollaia among the boarding house keepers, book sellors, clothiera, kz. of the city which ia an item worth looking after. The medical department of the University, under the j direction of Drs. Mott, Draper. Pattison, Paine, Bedford, i and Revere, has already enrolled a large number o' . names on its matriculation book. The regular session Of lectures will commence on the 1st of November ; but in ordlrto give some little occupation to the students during the present month, we understand that there will be a couple of lectures delivered daily by the professors These lectures are to be on subjects which are not included in the regular winter course. They will be free to all students.'and the profession generally. It is cheating to see New York thus sustain the lead in colleges, as she does in everything else. For a long time she slumbered in the matter of ntadical education, but she has now awoke, and every year shows that in everything she is the K.mpiie state indeed. Theatrli'ssla i Ann a nr.* i nk ? a uc uciiuiiiuj mju ueuing comeuy oi ' the "Jealous Wife," will be revived thi* evening, end > great as the success of Mr* Keau haa been, in all her favo ! rite character*, we anticipate that Mr* Oakley will be one ; of her finest representation*. There i* no other repreaenta- 1 tive of thi* arduous character now on the stage, and we have no doubt the public will witneaa. this evening, one of , the greatest theatrical treats that can be afforded them at ! the present day, on any stage. Tne "Two Gentlemen of Verona'* w ill tie brought out to-morrow evening. This exqnisite shakesperian comedy ha* never, we Delieve, been acted in the I'nited States. We can well imagine w hat Mrs Kean will be in Julia, from our acquaintance , with her Viola. The production of these two comedies | wilt add to the lame of the Keans and the treasury of j Mr. Simpson. Bowt.av Thestbk.? Mrs. Shaw appears to-night as Julia iu the "Hunchback," a part she has not acted for live years, and consequently a novelty, added to which' she also plays her great part of Constance in the "Love Chase the performance being for her benefit, and the i last night of a most brilliant engagement. Mr. Jackson> : whose enterprise never sleeps, should endeavor to re" engage Mrs Shaw, and he will do so if there is a possi" bility of effecting it. The Bowery theatre, in ita brightest days, never flourished with more iclat than under ; thejdirectionjofthe present proprietor,ever on the look out | for novelty, and presenting nightly strong inducements ( u run nia uu-aire. i ne mimic appreciates au lauors, ; and will reward him accordingly. OaKinwicH Theatre.?A drama of lingular construction and most thrilling interest, which ji now crea" ting great excitement in Paris, called the "Man in the Iron .Mask," will be brought out this evening at the Greenwich, with powerful accessions of talent and appropriate scenery. Mr. Freer, and Miss Mary Duff, who has become such a favorite with the public, will both appear in this piece. Alter which the Kthiopian minstrels w ill apjiear in their celebrated peiformances, and sing some of those "niggar melodies," which thonsands have > enjoyed in hearing. To be followed by the intere-ting ! drama of the "Vagrant and His .Family," performed by ; the strength of the Greenwich company. The pretty Miss Robinson will dance one of her favoiite pat. after which the King of Darkies, John Diamond, will give us those inimitable break-downs and magnetic steam engine dancing, which in itself is well worth the price of admission. Mr. Freer is untiring in the seeking and presentation of agreeable novelties, and the public, we ere glad to see, is not backward in proper encouragement Bowaar Ciaccs.?Levi North, the distinguished equestrian, will appear for the first time this season before a New York audience, and all who go to see him are bound to be astonished. A new species of enter- i tainment is also offered this evening, in an exhibition o^ the athletic exercises of the olden time in England, embracing a course ol ail the games, sports, and lestivals which we read about, but very seldom see. Mr. Dale, , the unrivalled vaultiit, will exhibit his skill too in so- i mersetting It is almost incredible to what a system this gentleman has brought the practice, in which he excels almost any performer living. We cannot men tiun *11 the variety of entertainment to be met with in | this amphitheatre, ut no one will regret an evening I {tested at an establishment where novelty seems to mow no end, and pleasure no limit. Arch Street Theatric, rhii.adei.phia.?Mr. Burton j has, at great expense secured the services of the Ravel ! Family, late of Niblo'a Garden, in this city, and they ap- 1 pear this evening, in their performances on 'he tight rope.aod in the comic pantomime of " M. Duchalmeau." , Alter which the farce of the " Irish Tutor" will be presented, Mr. Shaw, an actor of much merit, taking the character of Dr. O'Toole. A strong bill, and should fill ' any house in the country. Waijci Street Theatre, Philadelphia.?A combination of high dramatic talent is presented at this theatre, to night. Mrs. Mowatt and Mr. Davenport, who have been so eminently and deservedly successful with us, appear in the tragedy of " Romeo and Juliet," this evening) alter which, the farce of the " Irish Tutor," will be )>erformed Mr Leonard, as Teddy O Rourke The real liish personification ol the latter gentleman will secure him waim admirers wherever he may go, and the Fhilajelphiaiis n av biess the Gars w hich send them three actors ot such rare excellence in their profession, ss will appear belore them this eveninr The Ballet. Madmk. Augusta?Thia beautiful and much admired artiste, who lately arrived from Europe, with a ttconde, M ile, burner, troupt of balletidancera, such as wa hate never had Jttbre in this country, we understand, has made an enflgement which will shortly take her, with her troupe, to Hsvana. She will probably embark at Charleston 01 petchance at New Orleana, proceeding . there by the nay of rittsbergh, lie , thu* enabling her , to take icveial of the larger southern citiea in liar route, i We hope, however, that some arrangement will he made by which we may have un opportunity of beholding a j ballet, propeily put upon the stage, previously to her depsrtuie vladame Augusta has but few equals as an 1 arfisir, and Vl'lle Dinner is highly spoken of by European critics ; the selected with much caie, aia of well tried ability , and that such s combination should ' leave ua without being seen by our citizens, would reflect do credit upon the policy of some of our theatrical managers. Sporting Intelligence* TaoTTtvo asd Paemo ?The proprietors of the Cen 1 treville Course, having tendered the track gratuitously to Mr. Carman, for a complimentary benefit, the largest Held of horses have been brought forward for the occasion that we ever remember to have seen offer ed ; and ail the animals are of the first order. There will consequen'ly be raie sport to-day. We doubt not there will lie a large attendance, for Mr..?;arman is au old turfman, has been the owner of a number of fine trot'ing horses, and a large jortion of his life has been devoted to the encouragement and promotion of this branch of the turf Kor the names of fh# horses to contend, and tha , variety of the sports offered, we refer to the advertisement in auother column, r train of cars will leave the South Kerry at one o'clock for the track, and return when the sports of the day are over | blu-leal lnt> lllgvm e. Steams* or Hivoat ?Tho concert o.'' this distinguished artist, will not take place to-night The disappointment felt by the thouiands who were anxious to hear the ?ucceaior of Paganlni, ie probably equalled by the regret which he himself feels at being necessitated to |>ostpone his entertainment. The cause, we loam from a fiiend of the mantra, is the breaking out of an nicer on that side of his neck upon which he rests his violin, while playing and the serious appearance of the disease. Iia- compelled his medical attendants, Drs Mott and Quarkenboss, imiieratively to forbid auy present exertion on the part of the artist Had the ulcer broken out on the other s>de of his neck. Signor Sivori would have given liii con- ' cert in spite ot all danger; but the pain which would be . caused by the coutinutu chafing of the violin u|>oiit!io affected part, might not seriously inime his own health, but materially mar the beauty of his execution It bis health is suthciently recovered from this misfottune, end . his rough treatment on the Atlantic, he will give bis I concert on Monday next. M*. Lovaa.?This gentleman appears to-morrow eve- | ' ning at the Stuyvesant Institute, for the third time, in one ' of his peculiar and delighttul entertainments His two nrtl" eveumgs wereemincmij iuttnuui. lusinxcn; and racioeai of the entertainment, a* well as the fame of Mr. I.over, are sufficient to make hi* " evenings" highlyattractive. lie combine* song, anecdote, pun, vvi'tn ciam ami drollery of the most purgent and pleating character; and hi* recitation* are ol the very highest order, both in matter and manner What lends double interest to the entertainment, i*. that it ia entirely original, all hia song*, recitations, Sic , being of his own composition. Leopold De Meter.?The lion pianist, at the solicitation of numerous friends who wish once more to hear him in this city, will give another concert at the Tabernacle previous to his departure for Boston. It will be on Thursday evening next The mere announcement of this fact will suffice, we think, to collect an audience, uch u the merita of he great artiat deserve. The Alhassrs was graced last evening with a full and fashionable attendance of our up-town families to enjoy the splendid sacred harmonies of HanJel, ilnydn and Mozart, which were admirably performed by Messrs. Kyle, Marks, Loder, Hirt'ert, and the other instrumentalists; while in the vocal portion of the concert we observed manv of the most able and talented singers of the day, and full effect waa given to the beautitul gems of sacred melody with which the programme abounded. This splendid establishment, as at present conducted, affords one of the most refined, luxurious, and delightful modes of blending improvement with smusemont and en jovment yet devised lor the public. Here, iu the tastefully embellished rotunda and galleries, seated perfectly at one's ease, the ear is charmed with music while the eye is feasted with a coup d'ail of beauty, and the palate regaled with the choicest viands and confections. The unquestionable respectability of the establishment, the admirable arrangements to ensure decorum, and the delightful character of the entertainments, render the Alhamra the resort par rxrtlltnct tor ladies, who may | here enjoy all these ngr't??*?'? in as much security as if seated in their own parlors b very evening during this week there is to be a change of amusement, and with such attractions as are offen d for the gratification of the es e, the ear and the palate, w ho will not visit the Alhamral Thic Aroi.tonioi, These children of harmonv give a concert at Newark this evening, arid our friends across the water may consider it a go den opportunity of excluding their patronage to those who are most eminently deserving of it Alter an attendance at a rehearsal given by them we spoke of their high talent and advancement in the musical science, <n terms of unqualified praisenor has a subsequent hearing ol tln-m at different concerts, in this city and Brooklyn, given us any cause to change our opinion On the contrary, we are moie and more satisfied that their talents are of an order which | will eventually place them in the highest attainable ranks I of their profession Their enteitainnients are of a class which not only present a display of aitUtical skill, to be I appreciated by those advanced in musical science, but 1 afford to those who are fond of more simple strains an en- ; tertainment which eanuot fail to gratify aad delight each i and everv auditor. Their stvle is neculiarlv their own. ' and the unpretending detriment of the boys, with the ; arch navieie of theHttle girl aecure them warm fiiendi wherever they appear. We tru*t to hear them again ;n our city before tney leave for the eastwai d. City In tell Itfe nee. American Institute?1 ho Nineteenth Annual Fair 1 of-"the American Institute will open to-day at Caatle Garden. Many have apukeu in previous rear* of the amencss which prevailed in the diatributioa and ar ( rangement of the articles exhibited, but thii year all i v.ill be satisfied The spacious a e.i ?i -*?tle Garden is I admirably adapted for the display ol every urticle of me' i chancal, agricultural, or scientific worth*, of which, we 1 understand, an unusually large number are offered this year The proximity of the Garden to the water, will aflord a fine opportunity for the exhibition of all nautiral inventions, and this will be a novel and attractive leature of the season. Crowds have visited these lairs in burner years at Niblo's, and the change of position will be rather favorable than otherwise to the success of the Institute in their praiseworthy undertaking of exciting competition in American art, and plaaingour worksjona i par with, if not superior to, these of foreign countries. The Dl'cs or Vaucanson.?We learn, that owing to the numbers who still throng to see this remarkable specimen of mechanical art, so closely assimilated to nature, that it will remain in this city to the middle ef the present month. It is, of itself, beyond all question the most wonderful invention of the kind ever produced, and as such, has drawn crowds of visiters from the learned and scientific ; bat there is a variety of other mechanical figures richly worthy of inspection. The Great Mogul ; 011 his War Elephant, tho celebrated dancing lady Mad'lle Babette, and the beautiful fao-simile of the Egyptian Sun, will well repay a visit. A private anatomical cabinet is annexed to the exhibition room, which are the best samples of human anatomy ever brought to this country, being prepared in Florence and Pans. Those who have not yet visited Mr. Tietz's exhibition, would t do well to avail themselves of the present opportunity. Serious Accidbkt.?About half past 4 o'clock pester" day afternoon, a horse employed to draw the baggage cars on board the ferry-boat at the foot of Liberty street, j in consequence of somo boys throwing stones at it, became frightened and started oft' at full speed up Courtland street, with the shafts attached. The horse on arriv- 1 ing opposite the St Nicholas Hetel, ran on the sidewalk, knocking down and running ovot two children ; one of them, a little giri between 3 and 4 years of age, daughter of Mr. Collins, residing at No. U6 Courtland street, ! was so seriously injured that her recovery is considered doubtful. Stoat Chilmer?Two small children found wander- i ing in the streets in the 1st District, yesterday, were sent to the Alms House by officer Kckofi. Mar Hubt.?A man supposed to be Francis Craft, was found yesterday morning, corner of Allen and Division ' streets, with a cut on the head, and was brought to the j Station House in the 10th District. The Wratheb.?Yesterday may be ooniidered the i first day of the fall season; the day was fiae, and the air Kit* mm nimht mm* in rain AAinmnnnail falliw* i and contiuued until we went to prets. Nuisance?The street at the corner of Stanton aDd Sheriff requires a look from the Street Inspector. The gutter is stopped up, and the sink flows out on the street. Local Impboteiuusts ?Our citv fathers will meet ngain this evening, and the timo will be consumed from A to 10, or 11 o'clock in the presentation of petitions and , nn occasional word er two between the members. The ' local improvements, for which there is room every where in the city, that have^becn time and again spokenof, have not, since the present Board came into oflice, re- i ceived the remotest degree of attention from any of the members. The city treasury ia drawn upon from time to , time upon every frivolous pretext, and j et nothing has , been done to improve the city. It was expected that at j one time the continuation of Canal street to the Bowery, would meet with the attention of the Common Council ; but like all reforms, it ban been allowed to sleep in the ' tomb of the Capulets." If our city fathers would en- i deavor to "mend their ways," and give us good pavemerits, clean streets, with some improvements, such as ; the continuation of Canal stieet to the Bowery, they , might cavil as they pleased about the spoils of office. i The Grease Spot Max.?This dittingue individual j now holds his levees at corner of Park Kow and Deck- I man street, and is attended by numerous groups of customers, who .seem anxious to shake off some of the dust of the summer months from their "eoveilets." He is j driving a flourishing trad-* 01 it ; and that there may he "no mis'ake" about the quality of his article, he gives a trial on the spot, whicn is often attended with much amusement An occasion il New Jeri-ey or Long Island farmer, who piques himself on being a "knowing one." may be seen with his coat Jolted in order tu teat the w ares of tne "grease man." who descants upon the virtues of the box. and soon the article passes fiom the vender to the vendee If the grease spot man could "come it" like the razor strop man, he would make a fortune, and as it is, he seems to be driving a pretty hard business.

Coaosrxs't Office, Oct. 4.?Mwritr nf an Infant? I The Coroner held an inquest'yeaterJay.at the Tombs, on the body of a newly born female intent, of very One pro- : portions, which was founJ yesterday morning floating in the North River, foot ol 64th street. Upon a post mortem examination being made by the skilful Dr. Holmes, insisted by Dr. Abrems, it lesulted in the opinion of these learned gentlemen, that the child came to i's death from violence from a Moe o1' *be head from the fact of ' there being a large quantity ol coagulated blood under the scalp, and the brain was also full ot blood. Upon placing the lungs in a pail Ot witter *hey floated, showing evidently thnt it was alivo slier hiith The face and head were nibbled by flsh, thus somewhat disfigur- | ing the !eetnres--otbersviee it appeared to be quite a fine child. In all probability this poor lit le martyr of love was carried on the dock and then taken by the legs, Its hsad dashed against the pier, aud then precipitated into 1 the water The jury rendered s verdict that the lnlant came to Its death by violence on the heed,by whom to , the jury unknown. mmtm*"""" FVfcisd on F. i erjnts ?An application * "? made. on 1 Saturday inorcni g. before liwtica Osborne. by as German emigrant, by tlie name of llenry J Dniaajp, who stated i he bad been defrauded out of $?i'J by a m#ii called Michael P O'Hcro. who, it appear*, ia comarted with an Emigrant Forwarding otlice. located at No-plti Washingtoo atreet, under the lirm of Woodward 8t Cg. The complaiuant atated that he purchased, 7 or 8'daya ago, of O'ilern. two ticket* for himaelf and family, consisting of j even person*, for which he paid the slmve an in, in full, for their passage through to Cincinnati. However, on arriving at Buffalo, he waa informed bv the afent there, that the ticket* wero of no value, and that hefvould have to pay f7 lot each persou, n*t>w?, to be forwgyded on to their place of destination, tSnofcynati, This ha was unwilling to do, and applied to the police authentic* in Buffalo fur rejress, who, upon hearing hia coBploint. ad- , vi?ed him te return to New Vork.aud apply tf the police authorities here, which he did. It appears froB the story j ot this German, that this species of fraud, practised upon emigrants, is an every day occurrence, therf being, at the present time, over ISO poor Gervian emiganta in the Alms House at Buffalo, who have all Viuen defrauded in the lllM manner; | haying paid all the money they pocaessed for their transportation out west, by purchasing the no fraudulent tickets, which only conveyed them as (tf as Buffalo A va?t number of emigrants who are awiafled in the I same manner, but baring more money with them, buy m?rft tickets to rnrrv thorn nn kmnu/inar full uaII that it would cost hs much or more to return backt* New York to prosecute, than it would to pay their paMbge and pro- > oeed on their journey There is also a set of "Runners" in Bultslo?evidently in the pay of soma of these agencies, who make it their business to persuade these poor emigrants to buy fresh tickets, and will frequently purchase their old ticket for fifty cents, which Cost them f>7. Thus, by this process, these "mock" forwarding agents are reaping a rich harvest by the ignorance of the poor emigrant, and the aid of their own rascaltty. *** ^rri tion Sutaiciun?A fellow called Charles Leman, was discovered last night concealed on tha premises No. 170 Broadway, occupied by Mr. Henry Eaty, evidently with intent to ste <1. He w'as taken to the 3d Ward Station Hon e by ollicer Skerriden, and locked up.

She was built, we understand, under the directions of Cornelius ; Vsndorhilt Y.sn.. nf New York, and after model* and ! description* furnished by him , and after she was on the i stocks was purchased, together with the well-known steamer Worcester and the Cleopatra, by the Norwich and Worcester Railroad Corporation, under authority granted in the charter of that company, for the purpose | of maintaining the line of communication between New j York and Boston, in connection w ith the Norwich and Worcester and Boston and Worcester Railroads. Since the Atlantic has been placed on this line, she has fully answered the expectations which were excited, by the | great skill and experience of her projector and designer, ' and his declared determination to build a boat, whioh j should exceed in all the qualities of speed, strength, and comfortable accommodation, any steam vessel on | the New York waters, in which cue she must of course surpass every other boat afloat. This vessel is of fine proportions, and is pronounced by skilful persons, who examined her while her frame j was open to inspection, to be of great strength, not only from the dimensions and excellence of her timbers and materials, but their skilful combination, She is 320 teet ; in length, 35 in width, and measures one thousand and sixty tons. Her water wheels are of immense height, being 3a feet in diameter. Her engine is of 1300 horse power, and is a machine of great beauty and excellent workmanship So porfect are the proportions of the 1 vessel, and such the power of the engine, that her ' friends claim for her, we believe justly, the title to rank 1 tii st in point of speed, of all the boats which have yet been built She has, we are informed, repeatedly made the voyage.from New York to Allyu's Point, a distance ! of 135 miles, and aomewbat difficult navigation, in aeven and a half hours, being an average speed of sixteen and two-third miles an hour. 8he moves upon the water | w ith great steadiness and ease, the jar from the action [ of the engine boing but slightly felt In the heavy | wind 'which raked the Sound on Wednesday and Thursday nights, she made her voyage from Ailyn'a Point to Newport and back with gieat steadiness, and without the slightest discomfort to some 350 to 300 passengers on hoard on each occasion, although the voyage was prolonged on Thursday night by the force of the win<i, two or three hours There was. on both uights, an extremely rough sea, and a number of vessels sustained more or less iDjury, from the effects of the wind, be*- I eral experienced navigators of the Sound declined that i they never before encountered so heavy a wind, accono- | pained with clear weather, as on Wednesday night, j The properties of the boat, which are most obvious to ; the casual observer are tbe spaciousness, beautiful proportions, and elegance of finish and furniture, of her apartments, and their adaptation to the gratification and comtort of her pessengui a. The lowet cabin, which is I 300 teet in length, is Mirrounded by three tiers of berths i The ladies' cabin?on the main deck, also provided with berths?is 60 or 70 feet in length, and the saloon on the upper deck, is 260 feet in length. The berths are lemarkabie for their liberal dimensions, and are over five hundred in number. On each side ot the grand saloon, and ojiening upon it, are more than fifty atate rooms el convenient sire?each with one or more berths or beds, making ihem commodious sleeping apartments. The finish and lurniture of all these apartments is neat ! and tasteful, and much of it rich and elegant. The Milk ing Mud^ilding of the grand saloon, the curtains to the \ bads and berths throughout, and particularly to those of ; thu ladies'cabiu, and some ot the state rooms, are ele- ; gant, and display inach taste, care and judgment, in the l selection and arrangement, as do the general selection t and style of the furuitui oof the bertha and table, as well es of the apartment*. Tbe general condition of the vee- ! set, and particularly of its sleeping apartments and table 1 furniture, was remarkable for its neatness ; and the I attendance at the table as well aa the supplies which wero upou it, wero most satisfactory. i ne nout nan ueen compieieu ana lurmsueu uuuer rue direction of John C.

Willum Thomas, an itinerant clock maker, front New York, about50 years of age, met a horrible death at Nashville, Tenn., last week. The Bewwir says -.?From what we can learn, he hail been employed by tho authorities of the Corporation to repair the clock ; in the Court House, and had been ongaged upon it for two or three days before Iris death. It is supposed that, while under the influence of liquor, he went up into the third story, on Thursday night, between the hours of 10 and 11, without a light, and that, in groping about he was precipitated over the balustrade of the rotunda?falling a distance of some forty or fifty feet upon the brick floor at the bottom. When found life was entirely extinct? the left side of his head being entirely erushed, and the brains scattered about. His left arm was much bruised, and the blood was running from under his finger nails. Challenge Accepted?To Dye without killing the Hair. 1 have great pleasure in accepting the ehal- i lean Of Mr. K.

Thie la the only fair way to teat the i merits of compounds of thia nature, as it ta plain to common sense that hair may be subject to a very different process, , when offered as samples off from the head, to what is nrac- i tic-able on the head or face.

During the put week we have received, by two arrival* from Liverpool, highly satisfactory and encouraging advice* in a commercial point of view, from all part* of Kurope. It ia pretty well fettled, that the harvest* of Europe generally, are deficient in every reipect, and that a very large quantity of breadituflf* will be required from the United States, as there i? no other ource from which supplit* to any extent con be do. , pendod unor.. With every allowance for exaggerated statement*, in relation to short rtopa, Arc., it cannot be denied but that the grain growing countries on the con' tinerit will require aupplies from abroad, instead of be. ing jnble, as usual, to.meetfany demand from other countries. There have already been large exportation* of bread'tuft* from Great Britain to the continent, a very unusual course for this trade, which is indicative of the atate of the crops in that part of the world. From France, we have the official statements of the government minister, as authoiity for saving, that at iea*t one hundred and fifty millions francs worth of breadatufTa will be requited from foreign countries, to make good the deficiency in the harvests. In Great Britain, it is estimated that ten millions starling worth of breadatufTa will hardly suffice to supply the deficiency in the crops of the United Kingdom. It is impossible to estimate the deficiency in other parts of Kurope, but even if they have within their own limits sufficient to supply the domeetic demand, they can aff ord no relief to their neighbor*, who hare horetofore dependedj upon them itiperiode of ?car- | city. It, therefore, appeart, that the eurplue agricultural product* of the United State*, will be required to feed the population of almost every pert of Europe, and we hare no doubt but that every barrel ot flour and bushel of grain we can spare, will be required to meet the de- j mand from abroad for actual consumption. This demand will, of course, hare a very greet and very favorable influence uran prices, and we have no doubt they will advance to'igher point than has boen realised for a long time. It is very probable that there will from time to time be a reaction in the advance, and speculators will, without doubt, suffer serious losses . but the result of a vory extensive external demand for our breadstuff*, must be a very great Improvament in price*. There are bulla and baars in the corn markets, as well is in tie stock marksta, and while one party ia striving to put up prices, the other is making efforts to put them down. Hour is sold abort, aa welljaaUancy stocks, and not one j half of the lot reported from day to day are hoot (Idel* not out barrel In t huodrtd reporttd II ?olJ chant hand*, and thtra ia, therefore, apparently mora ectiv tjr in tha market than what really exiiti. ' It would he rood policy on tha part of tha producer*, if they would part with thair producu at fair ramunrra' ting price*. The account* which will reach u* from the other ride about Chrietmae. thi* year, will probably be of *uch e character a* will give the greatest impetus to the upward movement in pricee, and thoie who permit that period to pa**, without realizing will, in our opinion, make a very great miitake. Tha experience ol' many year*, in carefully watching the comae olthee thing*, ha* convinced u? that the Ant accounts are urnally the mo*t unfavorable. Tha actual yield. inrar'a?!y turn* out more extamive than anticipated, and in dve out of airrv six tain of n.ectcd or rennrt*i1 ? prices have in the spring, ruled lower than between harvest and Christmas. That it will be so this time, we have not the slightest doubt, and although it muat be acknowledged that there is a general deficiency in the supply throughout Europe, and every prospect of an extensive demand for our products, we have no doubt, prices will reach the highest point in our markets within the next ninety days. We annex our current comparative table of quotations for the principal stocks in this market for each day of the past week, and at the close of the week previous It will be observed that there has been a very small improvement in some of the fancies, and a very slight falling off in others.
