NEW YORK HERALD. N??v * o. N, TiKi'lny, Xovtmbrr 3, 1346. Klectlou Return*. We shall feel much obliged if the inspectors nnd officers of election in the different ward# and districts of this city, Jersey City, Brooklyn, and Williamsburg, will send us the official returns to-night, as soon as the contest is over. We wish to have perfect returns in to-morrow's Herald News from (Europe. The Britaonia, with sixteen days later intelligence lrom Europe, is now due at Boston. Wo may hourly expect her news. We understand that the i peculators have arranged another express ; and we, therefore, caution the publ c ?ga.nv b 'ying or selling any cotton, flour, corn, w -at, &o , till after the news is published. It ? 1 do less harm to wait a day, than to lose money by tellitu* to, or buy ins? frotn the speculators. We ad vise them to keep their eyes wide open. Tlie Cinlra of September nnrl October. We give in another column full particulars of the disastrous effects of the gale of the 11th of October last in Havana, and also a few particulars of the hurricane of the 17th of September. The past autumn is characterized as having produced greater loss of shipping than was ever heard of in the same period before. Already tire number of lost vessels exceeds one hundred, and many more have shared the same fate, which will never be heard from. We fear that wo have yet to learn of great loss of life. The tCtccilon, this day?Attention ! This morning, at sunrise, the citizens of this great State will be called upon to exercise one of their dearest and most sacred rights, that of suffrage, and to cast their ballots for the election ol a Governor, a Lieut. Governor, Members of Congross, Members of Assembly and Senate, Canal Commissioners, Sheriffs, County Clerks, and Coroners, to represent and act for them for one and two years ensuing, and also to vote for the purpose of ascertaining the views of the majority in relation to the New Constitution of the State, the New Charter for the City of New York; and, although last not least, on the propriety of extending the elective franchise to the colored population. We earnestly hope that all parties, and every citizen in our vast State,has pondered well on tho questions which are to be" decided this day, and if there should be any among us, who, either from pressure of business, or any other cause, have not had leisure to examino the several questions that are to be decided by this election, that they will yet, even at the last hour before the closing of the polls,' read tho new Constitution, and reflect on the consequences that will undoubtedly ensue, if the colored popwlat;on were placed on a political and social equality with the whites. Any citizen who votes without understanding tho questions upon which he is voting, is unworthy the name of American citizen, and is a traitor to the great cause of liberty and human rights, while any one who votes for either men or measures contrary to his convictions, deserves to bo execrated by all honest and well thinking men. We have taken especial caro to keep the candidates of tho several parties into which the voters of the State are divider!, before the people, as well as tho measures that are to be decided at this election. We now give them again for the last time, as far as this city is concerned. THE CANDIDATES ANI) QUESTIONS.

Hufty as the native candidate for County Clerk; but that gentleman, in a letter to us, states that he ia not before the public as a candidate. The following is a copy of the letter To t?k Eniroa or ts? Hsrsld? Sia?I perceive by the Herald of this morning, that you represent me as a candidate for the ofRc# of County Clerk, at the approaching election. As I am not before the public in sach capacity, you will oblige me by correcting the error into which you have been led. I am, sir, respectfully yours, JOSEPH HUFTV. All we can say in answer to this letter is, that we consider it advisable to continue him in the table, because it is well understood that a great portion of the native narty will vote for hiin, and will repudiate the whig candidate. For the purpose of preventing confusion, we here publish all the places where the polls will be held. VOTIJtO PLACES I ft THE CITY. Diitrief. FIRST WARD. 1. Thresher's Bros* at. Hotel, eor.

The polls will close at sunset, or at 53 minutes past four o'clock, after which time no votes can be received.

Let every citizen dischargo this sacred duty, in a culm, temperate and quiet way, and then go home to his family. The Perils of Travel?Tub English Mails ?The Steamers Rhode Island, Oregon and Narragansett?The Lono Island Railroad. ?The express, arranged by Mr. Green and Mr. Law, over the Long Island Railroad with the mails for the steamer Caledonia, arrived at Boston, as we stated yesterday morning, at half past [ one o'clock on Sunday. It appears that on the application of these gen- \ tlemen to the agents of the company, they declined taking the responsibility of sending out an express at that hour of tho night, when other trains were due on tho road, or of starting the steamer New Haven in so dark and tempestuous a night, in the teeth of the gale, to make the passage across to Stonington. Application was then made to the president of the company, Mr. Fisk, who decided instanter to send forward a pilot nmrine tn irivo nnfir?. nml invi written Hirerv tions to the captain to make the best effort in his power to reach Stonington with the mails ui time for the Caledonia. We learn since, that the steamer crossed from Green port to Stonington in thruo hours and a half ?with considerable damage; her bulwarks arid part of her wheel house being carried away, oil' , Fisher's Island. The Rhode Island, we previously mentioned, was ashoro on Long Island. Some of the passengers who were landed from her arrived by yesterday morning's train over the Long Island road, and report that all were landed in safety about 3 o'clock 011 Sunduy, at Claypit Foint, a few miles east of i Huntington, by the praiseworthy exertions of the inhabitants of the neighborhood, who, on hearing of the perilous situation of the steamer, immediately procured two whale boats, which they launched, and proceeded to her thrr ugh the surf, and took on board the passengers and baggage and landed them in safety?making three trips to obtain the whole number. The inhabitants turned out in large numbers, and upwards of fifty of the stoutest men waded out, and stood up to their shoulders in the water, with ropes around them to tho shore?to receive each whale boat, or a line from them to briiig them upon the beach. The life, boats of the Rhode Island were stove, j in tho attempt to leave the steamor, and tho an- ! chors were relied on from 9 A. M. till 3 o'clock in the afternoon, when assistance came. Mr. Dimniiek, the agent of the underwriter in Boston, was on board, and came through yesterday by an early train, and states that the remainder ol the passengers would follow, in n succeeding train ; he also speaks of the excellent order among the passengers, and the coolness ami excellent judgment and management of the captain and otlicers of the Rhode Island, and of the inhabitants of the neighborhood on Long Island, who were mostly in church when the news reached them, and who proceeded immediately in a body with their wagons to the spot, and att'orded the assistance which proved so successful. The passengers, about 150 in number, were comfortably housed and most kindly treated in the several respectable families in tho place. The Narragansett did get through to Stonington on Sunday. The passengers by this vessel, for Stoning on, on Saturday night, were those who were on board of the Oregon, when she met with the accident, by a collision with a i.nrk. j They were unable from the violence of the gale ' to go through, nn<l returned yesterday morning, and joined the Boston train, at Brooklyn, at 7 o'clock, and proceeded through by the day lino over the Long Island Road. Amidst all theso troubles, gales, and disasters, the fine steamer Worcester, Captain-John Van Pelt, came through the Sound, and renehed this city at seven o'clock on Sunday morning, without the slightest injury. Captain Van Pelt is well known as one of the most skilful steamboat capi tains in this port. Since the above was written, we have received tlio Boston papers of yesterday morning. V e take the lollo.vmg from one of theim ? [From the Boston Courier, Nov. 3 ] We lesrn from passenger, who came on from New York in the steamer Atlantic yesterday morning, that an cement nappeneu to tne uiegon as sne was passing through Hurlgate She ctme in colliiion with vessel, ml ? ?< damaged 10 much that it wai thought necessary to rotum to New York Captain Duatan, of the Atlantic, slackened hit pace a* toon as he perceived an accident had overtaken the Oregon, and (topped to aee if he could render aMiitance On hie putting hack, however, for the place where he leit (aw the Oregon, he found that he had returned to New York. The night waa stormy, and the Atlentic (hipped one or two heavy scat, which, however, inflicted but trifling injuty Tho gallant steamer rode through the gale unflinchingly, and arrived at Allen's Point in (food season The Provident ol the road, Mr. Holland, who was on board the Atlautic, immediately on his arrival at Norwich -with that prompt attention which distinguishes his official character?despatchod a locomotive to Allen's Pokit to await the arrival of an express from .New York with the mail for the steamer ; for he supposed, on the return of the Oregon, an express would be sent by the Long Island mail, und be was not mistaken. An express leftNcw York city Saturday night, about 11 P. M., and arrived in this city with the mail in time (or tho steamer. ' The Caledonia was detained an hour, and received all her mails. Political Intelligence. M.benezer A. Latter is the democratic^ candidate fo Congress in the list district. _ I What Becomes or the JVIkxicah (inntAi.s I? Since the commencement of the Mexican war, the Mexican army has been constantly changng its generals. Notwithstanding the great number ofge neral officers in the army, they will scarcely have one left at the enil of the war, who is not imprisoned or disgraced. After the affairs of Palo Alto and Resaca do la Palmn, Arista was, at the instigation of Ainpudia, ordered to the capital, and deprived of command. Since the capture of Monterey, it is reported that Ampudia himself has been deprived ot command, and ordered to the capital. These two generals fought gallantly, and commanded their lorces skilfully ; but they were unfortunatp, and it would seem that want ot success is adjudged a serious crime in Mexico A general, to preserve command, must not inly be brave, devoted and skilful, but he must likewise be'successful. If the Mexic-ns carry out this iule in every in Sltlice, Uiey Will soon u? wuuoui n general lor their army. Success is not always a good criterion of strategy. A man of the greatest talent and bravery may be unfortunate for a time, and the very worst way to treat a man, on the exercise of whose talents depends any great issue, is to give hiin'to understand that unless he be prosperous he will bo ruined. There was infinite wbdotn in Napoleon's advice to the accoucheur of the Empress, to treat for her as for the wife q1" a peasant. The Mexican policy was adopted a century ago in the case of Admiral flyrig, who was shot for being unsuccessful There is nothing so much calculated to produce trepidation, entirely enbver iveof that coolness that is so necessary to a General on the eve of an engagement, as the reflection that failure will be ruinous to him; and to take the command of an army on the condition of winning every battle or being thrown into prison, is rather a thankless duty. It was very fortunate fur General La \fega that ha hnmianad In lie cnnlnrtwl liv niir troom. flrt would else, in all probability, be'now immured in a Mexican dungeon, instead of being lionized in the United States. Apropos oi tho Cieneral.? Where is lie at present 1 We have not heard of his whereabouts for some time. Shii' Asiiokk at Sqijan Beach.?It is the ship Wm. Engs, not Wm. Haines, that is ashore, and she is not insured in the Sun Mutual Insurance otlico. A part of her cargo, which is saved, is insured at the above office for t\v6 thousand dollars. Tho W. E. cleared at New Orleans lor this port, 011 the 6th of Oct , wiih the following cargo:?363 bales cotton, 113 do. liemp, 500 do. wool, 701 bbls pork, 50 do. beer, 248 bbls. and 618 kegs lard, 197 do. butter, 789 pigs lead, 10 puns, rum, and 10 pkgs. tndze. General PAttKDES.?We mentioned a lew days ago the arrival of this distinguished personage at Havana. Our Bermuda papers, of the 20th ult., state that he arrivtd at those islands the day previous, on board the British packet Thames. Probably Havana has had enough of Mexican ex-Presidents and cock-fighting He is cn route for England, to invest some money in the English funds. These Mexican Generals are great in their victories over Mammon if not over the Americans. | Wo would like to see Paredes in Wall street. [From tho Bermudian, Oct. 24 ] Among the passengers which visited these Islands, by the Thames steamer, en route for Europe, was General Paredes, late President of Mexico. He was released from confinement in the Castle of Perotu, with the view to his departure from the country. The General lost no timo in bidding Mexico farewell; he embarked on board the steamer, taking with him an immense quantity of specie in dollars. Itespect was shown the distinguished exile upon his visiting our shores In addition to otnera pproprk ate civilities, the troops were turned out to do him honor The General was deeply sensible of the courteous attention he received. Ocean Steam Navigation?Highly Interesting ?We find the following important information in the Bermuda Royal Gazette of the 6th ult. It is the first authentic intelligence of tire matter that ire have seen We mentioned in our lust having received the prospec tui of the West India and American steam Navigation Co , and promised some detail in our present number, which we now proceed to give. They propose that on every 14th day one of their vessels shall start from Demerara. calling at Trinidad, Tobago, Grenada, Barbadoes, St Vincent, Moutserut, Antigua, St. Christophers, St. Martins, Tortola, ami St. Thomas, and on every 14th day another steamer shall leave Vera Cruz, calling at one or two ports in Cuba, then at Jamaica, Cape Hayti, Porto Rico and St Thomas. On the arrival of the boats from Demerara and VeraCruz, at St Thomas, the goods and passengers brought by thorn will be transferred to litrger ffivttutei v, wuitu wj?i jjivi bcu lauutu m York, calling at Bermuda They expect to reach NewYork in time to moot tho British and North American ateamboat for Boston, Halifax, and Livcipool. On the arrival of tho English mail by tho Cuiiaid steamers at New York, the compan>'s steamers will return to St. Thomas via Bermuda. The establishment of such a direct lino of communication with the Windward Islands and Demcrara would be of much importance to our commercial community, and others, lor by the present circuitous route of the Royal Mail Steamers, letters or passengers do not reach Barbadoes until one moulh fioin the dute of leaving BermuJa. It would form a link in the chain of communication between the North American Provinces. Bermuda, and the West Indies, which we have long desiied to tee effected. Bermuda, too, from its central position,and the salubrity of its climate would, no doubt, lie more frequently retorted to by persons in search of health from the extreme cold ol tho noith.orfrom the intense heat of the tropics. Musical Intelligence! Lcopoi.d Dk Mcus'i Grand Kkstival at tiik Tabprsacis this Etinino.?This will be one of tho grandest musical affairs of the season. 1 he object is a noble one, and does infinite credit to the artists who have volunteered their services. The proceeds are to be appropriated to the aid of the chaiitable fund of the German Society of New York, and the talont volunteered is of the highest order. First, we are to bare Leopold DoMeyor in throe pieces, "Improvisations on Russian Airs," "Introduction ami (frond Fanta?ia on Klisire D'Amore," and Krnst's "Carnival of Venice." Mr. Pnilip Moyer, Mr. Ilecht, M'lle. Rachel, Fraulein Korsinsky, and Mrs. F.. Lodar, have volunteered their services, and will sing several favorite pieces. The orchestral department will be under the diiectionof Mr. (Jeorge Loder. Wo are glad to percoive that the orchestra will perform the "March Marocaine," composed by DeMeyer, und instrumented by Berlior, together with the "March Triumphaio D'lslay," and the overture from the "Huguenots." This will be a great musical festival rather than a concert, and it will doubtless be one of the fullest houses of the season. The following letter In relation to the "Lion Pianiat,'' is from Mrs. Childs to Father Ileinrich : ? Tiiiho HrRKfT, Oct. 4th, 1S48. To Ma. Asrinsr Philip Hsiskich, Mr HotsearD l<rik.vo:? AVhen you see Leopold da Meyer, will yon do me the favor to tell him, that I th >nk him very cordially, for his politeness in sending nie tickets to his concei t, j was suddenly and unexpectedly introduced to him, [Leopold da Meyer.] last cvnairg. and being a'simple recluse, unaccustomed to "lions,'' I was so much disconcerted, that I did not think to do it myself, until after he had passed by. Please say to him that it was not rudeness, but timidity and constraint, which prevented mo from thanking him personally. as I ought to have done, for hi? very unexpected politeness. Of courae, I am not such a fool aa to suppose that it is of the slightest consequence to him, or any other distinguished performer, whether I am gracious or ungracious; nor do I wish that it should be of an/ consequence. But I am really very much obliged to liitn for the polite and flittering attention, and as I had not pri once of inindto say it in words, I wish to convoy it in writing. On that evening, he outdid his : irmer outdoings, on the twe occasions, when I had previously heard him. I imagine that species of excellence can no further go. Tne expression of music comes to me I know not how?by a sort el passionate intuition, and when 1 hear de Meyer's magnificent playing, 1 stand in the midst of a whirlpool of harmonies, and hear wares of sound go leaping over Eddystone light house, &c.

Theatre?Mr Collins appeared last evening as ('aj.t <ia ORourke in tha new placa of tha "Soldier of Fortune" which waa altogether successful, the parte being all well played, and the audience"being kept in a continual roar of laughter. Tha piece abounda with rich humour and effective point*, and la light, graceful and full "f incident, and consequently never allow* tha attention of the audience to flag. The ?c?ne lie* at Versailles, and the time i* 170-1, Captain O'Ronrke (Collins) the "Soldier of Fortune,' 'an Irishman, "of Kildare by hi* father and Kilrash by his mother," with a heart aa light n? his purse. fin-Is himself, the war being at an end, "a victim to pence" and oblige 1 to gain hi* livelihood by becoming a professional second, and offering hi* ?rrvicea to any ons in want of such an accommodation?a rather hazardous m de of living, aa tha laws against duelling, particularly within the precinct* of the court, were then very stringent Wandering one d*v in tbo palace grounds he receive* a bouquet, thrown from a window by some unknown lady, who af forwards turn* out to he tha Baroness Beaupre, (Mr*. Abbott ) who has a slight penchant for the young Duke of Anjou, (Mrs, Hunt) just acceded to the throne of Hpain, for whom she intended tha bouquet, and who, on his i-art. is desperately in love with her O'Rourke, mec-.ing the Baroness in the gronods, makes love to her, under the impression that she it struck with his person Court Albert. (A. Andrews.) a nephew of the Baron, is alto in love with hit jtunt-iadaw. and boastiag of her kind nets to him, ia overheard anl challenged by the young Duke, who engages O'Rourkeaa his second The latter, mistaking the Duke for a page of the Count, treats him with the utmost freedom, and oilers to take his place against the Count, when the Duke ia wounded by the latter. The Duke, to reward the Captain's gallantry, secretly bestows on him the office of equerry, and the direction of the royal bedchamber, two offices for which the Baron Reaupre (Oeorge Andrews) and Jolivers (Fisher) have long been seeking. The Captain attributes his good fortune to the Baroness, whom he supposes in love with him, and by talking of her to the Barm. excites the .iealouiy of tho latter, who attempts to send him to the Bas'ile, but is defeated by the Duke, who iR at length revealed to the Captain by the Baroness. O'Kourke, after all the fraadom he has made with the Duke, is horrified at the discovery, but instead of being nut to death, as he expected, is taken into favor, aud has his two offices confirmed. He prevail* on the Duke to bestow one of them on theBaran, on condition that the lat'er will bestow on hirn tho hand of his niece: and so every thing ends happily. Thar* are two or three capital scenes between Mr. Collins and Mra. Hunt, and it it needless to say that both play their parts to parfection.? Fisher, George Andrews and Mrs Abbott, by their capital acting, contributed, in no small measure, to the success of the piece. Mr. Collins sang the " Bold Soldier ' Boy," in which he was enthusiastically encored. lie afterwards appeared in the farce of the " Irish Pest," which, from the beginning to the end, kept the house convulsed with laughter. In the course of the piece he sucg, in capital style " An Irishman's Heart for the Ladies." " Tne Soldier of Fortune" is to be repeated this evening, with "Teddy the Tiler," one ot Mr. Collin's best parts, and the humorous larce of the " F.ton Boy."? We cannot forbear mentioning the pleasure we derived,' last evening, from the performance, by the orchestra, of a inetlley overture 01 imn airs, wnicn wrr, we ueneve, brought over by Mr. Collins, and to which Mr. Chubb and his orchestra do every justice. Itwai heartily applauded last evening. Bowery Theatre.?Mr?. Coleman Pope from the London and Liverpool Theatre*, and an actresa of great accompliahment, appeared at thia theatre lait evening in the play of " Love's Sacrifice." From what we had heard and read of Mrs. Pope, we made up our mind to see in her not only an actress of great merit, but one with claims to talent of the highest order, with tragic towers equal at least to those possessed by many of the brightest stars at present on the stage, aud wo must say that we were not disappointed. In the peculiarly difficult character of Margaret Ellmore, she was triumphantly successful, and made a lasting impression on the audience, whose feelings and.hearti she had completely at her command, ana depressed and elevated at her pleasure. It is seldom that we see a first appearance so successful as was that of Mrs. Pope, ana from the impresnion she made by her last night's .performances, we are disposedto'believe that her own as well as the manager's interest, will be promoted by her engagement. Mrs. Sergeant as Hermine, performed har part in an exceedingly good style. We are glad to see this talented lady placed ill a position where she has opportunities ol showins her talent, ani cultivating it. Mr. Neafie as Mathew Elmore, was as he is in eveiy thing he undertakes, preeminently good, and played it in good taste and spirit. Mr. Stevens, Mr. Clarke, Booth, &c., wore the same as usual?capital The drama of the " Dumb Oirl of Genoa" eoncluded the evening's amusements In this Mr. De Bur acted the part of Strappado, the drunken corporal, in which he proved himself to be one of the best melo-dramatic actors on the stage. His performances in that character were extremely rich and ludicrous, and drew down repeated rounds of applause from the audience The Misses Vallec, who by the by, are the very personation of grace, beauty and artistic finish and accomplishment, amused the audience , with a dance between the pieces, which gave so much satisfaction and was so loudly encored, that it had to bo repeated, much to the pleasure"of the audience, who gieeted the fair dancers with very flattering marks of their admiration. The bill this evening embraces the plav of the 'Hunchbsck"?Julia, Mft. Pope; and the drama of "Robert Macaire." Mr. De Bar in the chief character The Misses Vallec will dance the fat it Nathalie. The Alhamra.? It is wonderful that the enterprising managers of this establishment can afford to give such a varied and novel entertainment at inch a very low price. The saloons of the establishment are of themsolves tastily arranged, and are a pleasant resort, if merely for the sako of obtaining superior refreshments ; but in addition there is dancing by a pretty artiiie, teats ot magic by a beautiful and young enchantress, specimens of rentriloquial powers, in which Mr. Wyinan truly excels, and the pleasing performance of the Italian Fantoccini. The music, under the direction of Mr. Loder, of course needs no commendation We advise our up town people to avail themselves of the opportunities of enjoyment now presented to them at the Alhamra. Bunssr Amphithkatric.? Great as the houses have been heretofore, last night, notwithstanding the storm, was the greatest of the season. The whole interior was literally a jam.

Mr. Carroll and tho beautiful Miss Rosalie for the last time, and a catalogue of novelties of superior and attractive qualities. Persons wishing to secure seats during the present run of novelties, would do better by booking their names during the day time.

As a complete collection of living wild animals, it has very lew that equal it for good arrangement and good management. Mr. Tierce, the lion tamer, is well deserving of his title. His power over the brute creation is certainly very extraordinary . We recommend to our citizens and strangers to visit this collection of animals, and to take their children with them. Police Intelligence 4 Nov. 3.?Snenirr at fVork again ?A Mr. A. Totter, at present staving at the Merchants' Hotel, Courtlandt street, was robbed on Sunday night last by a snooior of $120 in bank bills, one of wbich was a 510 bill on the City Bank of Montreal, Canada; also, a merchant by the name of Jona'han Hurling, who slept in the same room, lost 525 This hotel thief it appears (from the marks upon the head of the key) obtained an eutranco into the room by the aid of the nippers, and abstracted the money from the pocket books of the above gentlemen, replacing the |>ocket books and valuable papers therein.

A plan is laid then by the thief to rob nit^ and to effect this object the " snoozer" i communicates^ith his accomplice to come on a certain night or early in the morning, giving him at the sama time the floor that the room is on, likewise the number, so thst there could be no mistake The thief meantime requests of the merchant not to lock his room door on that evening, as he intends to remain out late, and would like to come in w ithout disturbing him However, the afternoon previous to the robbery the first thief pays his bill at the hotel, and leaves the premises, in the course ol the light or early in the morning, the accomplice passes into the hotel, proceeds up to the room, opens the door, and goes toward the unoccupied bed, an ihon makes signs as if preparing to undress for aleep ; the merchant, who's laying half asleep and awake, observes his movements, and thinking, of course that it is his old room mate, turns himself over in bed, and doses off again. The thief seeing this, and watching evary opportunity, sneaks to tho clothes of the merchant, aid abstracts the money from his pocket-book, taking geod care always to replace the book, just as he found it, with the exception of tho money, and than boldly laavea the room. The merchant, not suapeoUng any thing wrong, rises as usual, takes his breakfast, and finding his pocket book still in his nocket. no suspicion is crested, until in the i court* of tie day h* with** to pay for torn* pnrchaaea, wh*n, on opening hi* booh, he diacover* the lots of hit mon*y Thut the raacalt called " anooiera" art carrying on a vary profitable gam*, by which tyitem they I will effect many extanaive robheiica.

The complainant, Lamar, deposed, that oil the day in question, ne called at a house in Anthony street, keut by a man named Moon : that he there saw about half a dozea girls, prostitutes ; that he treated them all with liquor ; that he drank several glasses of liquor himself ; that he retired to a bed room with the girl Castello, having in I his belt at the time, $166 in gold coin ; that in conee: quence of having drank so much liquor he soon fell I asleep ; that on awaking in the course of a fow houra, ; he discovered that bis money, or at least the greater part I of it, had been stolen ; that he then aecusea Margaret ! castello with having stolen ir. which she denied having done ; that he found the nurse under tho carpet near the bed. Oflicer Gardner, of the 6th ward police, deposed, that he arrested the accused ; that he found between the sole and binding of her shoes 10 pieces of gold coin, , amounting to about $60, which she admitted that she took from Lamar.

Trial for an Attempt to Mutiny ?The ten seamen of the ship Hudson, who were indicted for an attempt at revolt on the -J7th of August last, on the voyage from Liverpool to this port, and who were tried at the last term of the United States District Court, when the jury could not agree, were again nut on their trial yesterday. They were ably deiended by Alanson Nash, Lsq. He contended that their shipping articles were not in accordance with the Act et Congress of 1H40, inasmuch as the men were not brought before the U. S. Consul at Liverpool, and their names and descriptions taken before him. Hence it followed that the shipping contract was void, and the relationship of the master and seamen did not exist between them. He also offered to prove that the men understood they were to have watch and watch during the veyage. The court overruled both points, and sent the case to tne jury, who, after short consultation, found them guilty. They were then remanded, and ordeied to be brought up far sentence on Wednesday.

We, the undersigned. the commute* appointed to inepest _ the now Organ erected at Trinity Church, bv Mr. H t v e o a, of the'city of Xsw York, beg to report:?Thn dnty of the committee hu been * work agreeable to them, end they hare to congratulate the inhabitenta of New Vork on possasaiug auch a splendid specimen of tiie mechanical arte, and an in* ; atruueutol aach i urity ef tone. The great Organ stops are individually of great beaury and escellence; the quality of the diapasons in particular (which are the most difficult stops to voice in the whole instrument) are equal to any European Organ that your committeee are acquainted with, and superior to any in this country, that has yet come under onr notice; but a want of judgment is erideut m the amouut of mixtura stops vixi in 1 the preponderance of the i rank furuitore atop, which gives j a sereuniug ffrct to the full organ, which, was <t not for the power of rone of the diapasons, would be entirely spoiled.? 1 This is a ftult not belonging in particular to this instrument, : bnt existing more or lets in most modem organs, and your 1 committee cstinot letre this snojeet without recommending that great c?re ought to be taken not to deatioy the beauty of the pure tone for the sake of mere netta. Tlie Choir organ it in all rsapecta moat excellent, every notecleir beautifully voiced, and the clerioaet and bassoon without exception the hett we hive ever heard. The swell is in every way admirable, each atop individually excellent, and the effect of toe fall swell grand and imposing in the extreme, and the doable dnlciaua but balances the light it ips well. Yonr committee caunot too highly praise the double diapuon in the swell, which gives a grandeur and force to the en'ire organ highly affective, and at the asms time recommendi g he adoption of this nobis atop in a)1 organs of any cousiderabln site. The pedal stops are most excellent, firm and sonorous in quality, but your eomtnit'ee moat decidedly object to the thin brass wire pedals, which are uupleaaaut to the foot and unmanageable in every reapec:, naviug no quality to recommend them but their novelty, beiug an iuuovation of u pos ible benefit, but oTgreet iletument to * good pedal player ? The tact of the notee attending to donble C ti of iuestim iblo benefit, and your committee hope for >he future the abortiya termination at the It G pedela will be exploded. The counter stops might with great benefit to the organ be diminished at least one-half, they being of no real yalue, beyond a certain extent, the ortaro conp'.es being decidedly detrimental; the tonch being thereby rnnch deteriorated, and the increase of useless expense being great. The mechanical execution of this most difficult portion of the organ te fleets unbounded credit both ou the skill and invention of the maker, vet we cannot consider any advantage to be derived from such a forest of couplers, to compensate for the increased expense and trouble. We also most decidedly disappreve of the arrangement of the draw stons, as beiug calcu lated to contuse the player by their complicated position, which is entirely at variauce with the approved practice of the best makers. The workmanship of the hallows is excellent, the adoption of percussion valves being of great benefit to the eteady pressure of wind. In conclnsion your committee canaot help expressing their high gratification at the general workmanship of the entire instrument, nothing haa been ueglacted that a liberal policy aud eierciia of skill could product. The organ may fairly be considered an ornament to the industrial arts of America; aud tkengh many inatruments may excel in the mere number of stops (so called,) yet where the great cubical extent of pipe (the open diapasons on the manuals beiug throughout of metal and the pedals truth deserve the appellation of (junf. The reed stupe reflect great credit on the maker, and ynnr l eomoiittee truetthat for the future the idea of importing reed ttopa from Europe may he abandoned, the maker of . this instrument having proved that in this most arduous I branch of his art, we nan safely submit te a comparison with . any European manufactory Mr. Henbt Eroan is deserving of the highest honor that I you or any similar institutioi can en-far on him. i GEORGE LODEB., Organise of Grace Church HE.VRVC TIMM, ' ofthsChurch of the Messiah. | H W.

At this rate the increase for the yeaawill be sufficient te pay the current expenses of the line. We have noticed that all the 8outhern railroads have, within the pa?t year, realized a greater per cent increase than any at the North, with one or two exceptions. This fact is of itself sufficient to show that these roods are rapidly improving the condition of the people of that section of the country , by developing their resources, and bringing the ex. tremest parts of the interior, which have heretofore been completely shut out from any communication with the seaboard, within a few hours travel of each other.? Railroads work wonderful revolutions in the face of the country through which they pass. Villages spring up in every direction, and these lines create the business by which they progress and prosper. There is not n railroad in this country, the local travel of which will not net handsome dividends to their stockholders, but we 6>nnnt ovnear*t thil until (Kn rnnnirw Knnnmae marn densely populated.

Some of the roada of the Eastern States are already able to pay large dividends from their local travel; these of this State do so to some extent, while those connected with this city will, before the lapse of many months, command a local and through business mere extensive than any other roads in the country, either of which would alone mahe them profitable investments at pr.ces much above their present Talue. The railway rraDia of Oreat Britain has been gradually subsiding, and we have no doubt it will result ia the construction of many very important lines of these reads.
