NEW YORK HERALD. York, Wednesday, Nortmhtr 1*. imi?. The Korrli(n Kewi-Tlir l>rol?at>le Downfill Of S|M"? 111" i By the arrival of the steamship Great Western at this port, and the Acadia at Boston, from Liverpool we have advices from all parts of Europe, fifteen days later than those previously received. They are highly interesting. T! e most important item of commercial intelligence is that the price of Hour had ceased to advance With the rapidity necessary for *p?culation. Contrary to almost universal execration, the Corn markets of Great Britain were exceedingly he-ivy, and the only article of food trom the United States in demand, at improving prices,was Indian Corn. Quotations for this grain per quarter, were higher than those for the same quantity of wheat, but tor food it goes farther, and is, therefore, much cheaper to the poorer classes. The supply of Indian Corn in the Liverpool market was, by no means, equal to the demand, and every arrival was taken immediately for shipmentto Ireland. The advance in Cotton,although slight, is contrary to the anticipations of speculators in this market. The Liverpool market was active, and sales to some extent had been made to speculators. The short supply of biendstuHs in Europe, act as a veiy great check upon any advance in the price ol Cotton, by reducing the consumption of the raw material. Had the harvest of Europe been full an average, there would tiave been a greater advance in Cotton than we have realized for years; as it is, we do not believe that prices will be enough higher to make up for the deficiency in the supply. The depression existing at the latest dates in the London money market, was caused partially by the prospect of a demand for the precious metals for export to the United States. The immense importation of breadstutls into Great Britain from this country during the past threo months, and the limited exportation to the United States, has placed the balance of trade so mnch in our favor that it is impossible now to prevent the How of specie into our ports, and into the vaults of our banks. The demand for exchange in this market is so small, and the rates rule so low, that returns must be made in specie. A large importation of specie would have a favorable influence upon business generally, for a time, but it would have a tendency to produce an inflation in the currency calculated to stimulate speculation and overtrading, which would be checked by the return tide of the precious metals to Europe, so suddenly, us to derange commercial atl'airs, and produce a great JcrI of embarrassment. Should the importations in the spring be very large, we thould be compelled to send back all the specie the course of trade may now bring to us, and the result would be much more unfavorable than in i the event of there having been no movement in specie at all. The Railroad to the Pacific.?The entire practicability of constructing a railroad to connect the waters of the great lakes with those of the Columbia River and the Pacific Ocean, is, we believe, firmly established; and this fact once confirmed, it needs but the importance of the work to our country, in a commercial and political point of view, to lie known and understood by the people, when n commencement will be made, and an impetus given to tho enterprise, that will not stop till the distance between St. Louis and the mouth of the Columbia River, can be accomplished in less than eight days. We have on several occasions attempted to estimate the important advantages that were sure to follow from the building of the road in question, and explained our geographical position?as compared with Europe and Africa on one side, and Asia on tho other, placing us directly in the centre of the world; Europe, with a population of two hundred and fifty millions, being about three thousand miles distant from us on the east, and Asia, with a population oflive hundred millions, being five thousand miles distant from us on the other? by a map, showing directly and conclusively, thai iqu u. ouiicB, imn nils i unit was uuui, wouia coiltrol the commerce of the whole world, and enjoy the carrying trade of these seven hundred and lifty millions; of the inhabitants of Europe, Africa, and Asia. We showed too, by tables, that the Atlantic cities and China would be brought together in twenty days, by aid ol steam 011 the Pacific; and Wy the same means on the Atlantic, we would bring the confines of the globe together in thirty days. These calculations were based on data that do not admit of dispute, if we can traverse the dis | tance by steam between New York and London 1 in ten days, the distance being three thousand miles, we can traverse the distance between the mouth of the Columbia and Nankin, in China> say five thousand four hundred miles, by steam likewise, on that quiet and stormless ocean, in fifteen duvs, and the intermediate distance by rail road in eight days?we have London and.Nankm, via New York, within thirty-three days sail of each other. The distance between these two ports, or between New York and Nankin, as now periornied by sailing vessels is eighteen thousand miles, taking from lour to five months to perform it. The opening of this highway across our country, would immediately attract the attention of the whole world: it would establish a short route to the riches and wealth of the East; and a jaunt throughout this route would be soon accomplished and comparatively so free from danger that the merchant and traveller, from all parts of the world, would crowd the cars and the steamboats employed upon it. It would hkewise bring into active u?e all other means of communication throughout tha country ; it would give useful employment to our people and every branch and form ol business. Agriculture would flowish in the Western States?commerce and manufactures would flourish in a wonderful degree; each would support the other, all imparting abundance and infusing a spirit of happiness and peace, and rendering our power as a nation greater than any ever attained since the creation, by any country. These are a few o( the unlimited benefits and advantage* that would accrue to the United States from the construction of a railroad to the Pacific. To enumerate all is impossible. A single view of the matter will convince the reflecting mind that the whole of three of the great divisions of the world would be our tributaries, that we would have a monopoly of the trade of the world, and that in a comparatively short period of time the wealth, power, and influence of our country would be such that we wouldnotonly be mistress of the seas, but hold the rest ol the world in the hollow of our hand. Our national Congress will soon be in session, and it is to be hoped that the members will give this important subject a share ol their attention. We beg them to read the report of the committee to whom the memorial of Mr. Whitney on this subject, was referred at the last session, whicb concluded in the following words : '' The committee believe that the present is an suspicions moment at which to commence this work; and upon the announcement of the fact that tha project has received the favorable notice of Congress, the energies of our people will be aroused to a new life. It is not a partjr measure,but one on which the politician ol avary hue and creed can cordially unite; one which will strengthen tho bonds of our t nion, allay sectional jealousies, and arouse a proud national leeling. We have within ourselves ell the material and all the means necessary for its accomplishment, and it rests with Congress to say whether or not these materials and these means shall be thus employed; whether tha enterprise is one of sufficient importance to juatifv setting apart one tenth of the public lands, now valueless, to its accomplishment. The committee will not anticipate, but cannot doubt tha decision " In view, then, of all the premises and of all the anticipated results to flow from the undertaking, if accomplished, the committee cannot retrain from recommending it to the attentive consideration of the national legislature, and of tha coun'ry at Urge hj the aid of a small portion of tha public iaads, tha cMtaittaa habere tha United Htales oaa possess a channel of speedy and safe IIMI " i mi TBLSOlAfSXO. ARRIVAL OF THE STEAMSHIP ACADIA AT BOSTON. FOUR SAT I LATER j . FROM EUROPE. STATE OF THE MARKETS. &r. die. dir. The steamer Acadia, from Liverpool, arrived at Boston yesterday morning, at half past nine i o'clock, making the passage in twelve) days and I eighteen hours., She sailed from Liverpool on the 4th inst. ! The Acadia having left hut three or four days after the Great Western, brings very little news, and as our Boston correspondents received the news by the latter, previously, by telegraph, they have sent the variation in the principal market quotations only. The cotton market had undergone no material !change. j The following was the state of the markets at Liverpgol, 4th Nov.:?The price of corn has advanced since Oct. 30, and the Lest quality of corn is quoted at 55 shillings per 480 lbs. The price of flour has declined 2s. 6d. per bbl, since the sailing of the steamer of Oct. 30. Flour in bond, best quality, is quoted at 33s. per bbl. Flour free of duty, or. free flour, is quoted at j 35s. per bbl. Ordinary Orleans and Mobile cotton is quoted at 5 to 51 pence. Fine do-iat to 6] pence.

K Hamilton, ladv, child and nursa; Mr. Browu, Mr. Hastings, Capt. Sauford?7. More Reoulart and Voi.untekrs for Mexico. ?We learn that the gallant Capt. Wm. H. Walker, who distinguished himself under old "Rough ' and Ready" during the Florida campaign, leaves in a few days, with a company of 90 men, for Point Isabel, to join his regiment, 6th infantry. In addition to this we learn that M. G. Hart, Esq., of this city has received the appointment of . Sutler to the Fourth Regiment of New York Vol- , unteers commanded bv Col. Thomas. | Naval.?The Secretary of the Navy is about to fill up the navy with the full complement of men , allowed by Congress. It will be seen, by an advertisement in another column, that 1,000 men j arc wanted lor the Ohio, soon to bo put in comi mission. We learn also, from good authority, that the apprentice school system is to be immediately revived. Had it been continued in operation heretofore, our Government woald not now be in such want of hands. Arrivals by the Great Western.?The Hon. Sir Allan McNabb, late Speaker of the Canadian House of Assembly, arrived in the Great Western, ! and occupies apartments at the City Hotel. Capt. Mathews, commander of the "Great Western," 1 as Jwill be seen by our "Movements," is, with many others at the same hotel. Magnetic Telegraph.?The press of matter still crowds in upon the telegraph. Theatrical. Parr Theatre?Kimo Johr !?This play was acted on Monday night at the Park Theatre with unexampled j aplendor. We will very briefly?for brevity, our apace compela?notice the drama itself, and the manner of its performance. No play of Shakapeare has greater social interest than this. Indeed, the main interest of it is altogether social. There it no individual in it of great intel" lect, and the only character in it of intense emotion is that of Conatance. But, evan hcrlemotiou ia that of the very simplest species?the emotion of a bereaved and distracted mother. And maternal agony and grief aio immensely brought out in Constance; huge masses of suffering follow so closely in succession, thet the .weight and vehemence of one seems to crush into nothingness, the sojtow that went before it. Arthur ia a gentle and a 1 gracious child. Queen Klinor is a cunning and a lieait leas old woman ; a fort of wolf-granAam, that reminds one of the nursery tale of Little Red Ridiughood- I Pandulph is a worldly old churchman, and u wolf too, I though in different clothing, and of a different gender Kaulconbridge is a strong, fine, healthy, manly animal, I and as such animal ever ia, he is bold, honest, generous and careless. Philip of Franco is a solemn fool, and John Vnnlor.,1 U u moon miA a rrupl knavo The great interest of the drama it, therefore, historictl, and there it no other period in the life of Kngland, which hat to deep an intereit at that of John. Thia period may he callod the critit and the travail in which modern liberty wat born?and like every birth, however joyful in remit, it wat accompanied with exceeding torrow. It wat sorrowful in real events, and how profoundly sorrowful hat Shakipeare rendered it, in poetic relation ! The king, who in thoie day* stood for the uation, wat the vileit and the most wicked; and the nation, which felt itself degraded in its king, bent down to mourn, or rote up to strive. The doleful humiliations which came upon the kingdom by means of this conflict Shakspeare sett before us in the drama of King John; and the play is singular among all Shakapeore's, In fixing the centre of tragic iaterost in a national catastrophe. > The state, then, with its vicissitudes and dangers, predominates in this play over all individual affection*.? Kvery individual destiny is absorbed in the historic destiny ; and the drama goes on to show us the body of the most eventful times. It shows us the ecclesiastical in dire strife with tlie.kingly power; spiritual authority fighting with civil tyranny ; the people, the meanwhile, acarce. , ly noted, standing idly by, and say ing, or seeming to say, j " .Settle, masters, among yourselves : we will have our time, hereafter?and when that time comes, we shall manage for ourselves." this play , is the great prophet of democracy. He anticipates, though indistinctly, an era before him in the future, when in the voice of the mighty multitudes, the petty rattling* of sceptre w<tn sccpirv, mm m? in>uiiina ?> nvum j against crowii, would be as unheard, an I as disregarded 1 a? tho ruatle of* streamlet in the booming of a cataract. The play, ai reproduced at the Park, wai a magnificent realization oi a by-gone age, and reflect* the high?*t credit on Mr. Kean, and ali the artist* who aided him. 1* , is pleasant te see an actor quit the mechanical business of his profession, and make himself conversant with the literature which belongs to it; and not only speak trippingly on the tongue the words which are set down (or him, but know the reason why he speaks them. But the thing for which we like these reproductions most is the pure and noble instruction they afl'ord to multitudes, who are thus taught, by a few glances, what years of reading would not have given them. They enlarge our being?they take u* from the present and the pressing world ? and they cast our feelings with ages which were once as real as our own. They open the grave of time ' -they cail on it to give up its dead, and tnese dead they cause to live and act before us after the fashion in which once they lived and acted. They connect us with our . fathers, and set before ue, amidst ali the diversities of our forms, the identity of our kindred. Ilow completely, for instance,on Monday night, did we tee what manner of men these were, from whom we have our ratural and onr social existence, our customs and our institu- , tions. There were the middle-age King; the priest, the knight, the soldier, the peer, the boor, and the burgher; | there were the church, in which the people prayed, ' the city which they guerded; there were the costumes in which Ptey wsia attired, and the arms with which they fe'lght; in fast, there wore the very lorm and pies- ! sure ot tue age. We rouid say much more on theee topics, and speak | at greater length ou the natural association, ney, the ne- , res vary connection, of true acenery and costume, with > tic romooontation,but our 1 11 11 in?a?w???ai on the acting Mr.'Ktafl ha ! t.i axWblt "chvartar which lias not a single great or generous impulse In 1\ but, which in the very extreme ol it, i? made up of mean and cunning vice, and which has little or no space lor ' even deep-laid passion; and theonly opportunity afforded him, that interview with Hubert, was finely used The utter meanness oI John's spirit could not be more truly exhibited than in the absolute prostration and relaxation, not only of mind, but of fibre, which Mr Kean displayed, when 110 aophiitry could conceal even from the royal , dastard himself, the miserable baseness of his soul And. | Mrs Kean was most transcendently beautiful, in one of the most pathetic of Shakspeare's characters, 111 the most 1 bewildering of human situations, in the agony ef afflicted | womanhood, through the laceration of her motherly instincta. We atop, now, because we must. We would give praise to all, for all deserve it; and especially, if space allow ed, we would notice some e xcellent points in the pait of Mr Vaudeiihoif hut we are compelled to finish Owing j to tbo uuavuidablc delay in managing the complicated machinery on a first representation, the patience of the 1 and ence was not slightly taxed ; but we know no' iu 1 the world an audience that would have borne it more ( kindly, and we are sure tbat the same demand will not be made on them again They, too, merit praise, and we < most freely give it ; but we trust that, at the close, they 1 felt as we did, richly paid for our forbearance. , We shall venture one word more, as the expression of a very simple, and a very sincere opinion, and that is, ' our profound admiration for the reseaich, the knowledge, ] tbu patient uiqunv, the indefatigable exertion, the fine ( imagination, and the high pictorial skill, nianrieaied by Mr Kean in the production of this most elaborate drama. 1 Take any one figure in it, say the humblest sentinel, and try to present his actual historical existence, and inde- I pendcutly of the gonius required to recall the past,; see < what thought and rending 1 will cost you, and you will J then have sumo slight idea of what it requires to exhibit an entire perion, in all the variety of its lita, in hun- j dreds of characters, in every position and gradation, with the utmost fidelity to the truth and spirit ol history. < Bowxar THXATar ?The lowering of the prices of ad- ( 1 mission here, must add considerably to the nightly proceeds at this popular theatre, as scarcely a seat was left unoccupied last evening. The house from gallery to 1 nit was a nerfect inm. The Bill was highly attractive, < The " Love Chase," iu which Mrs. Coleman Pope's Con stance. and Mr. Re Bar's Wildruke, were performeil with much ability, wan in itself a treat. The Misses Vallee danced a Put it Deux alter the play. The " Secret" next followed, in which Mr. Holland'* Thomas convulsod the house with laughter. He was well supported by Mrs. Sergeant as Mr*. Dupuis, which she performed with her usual naive humor. Mr. Clark's Dunrees, was also very well sustained. The spectacle ol " llookwood, or Turpin the High way roan," wound up the performances. The whole piece weut off in a manrer highly creditable. The worthy and enterprising manager, Mr. Jackson, is eminently entitled to the strong support which he receives, from his liberality in thus catering for the public amusomont, by giving such attractions at moderate prices. r*LMo's.?Another crowded house last evening greet' ed M 'lie Blangy, who seems to be rapidly gaining golden opinions from the Now York public ; and she truly deserves all the praise bestowed on her. There is a fresh- , tress, an originality about her style which delights while it astonishes ; her pat are given with such exquisite grace and youthful vigor, and her pantomime is so ex ! pressively beautiful, as repeatedly to call forth loud apiilause, and more than once was she encored. M'Ue Celeste improves nightly ; she is a most excellent tecanie; and M. Hazard is one of the bert dancers we havo ever seen. The vorpt it ballet show tho excellence of their drill. This evening the new ballet of " La Chatte," in which M'Ue Blangy was so successful in Boston and Philadelphia, will be produced ; and Monsieur Bouxair, of whose reputation we have before spoken, will make his fust appearance in this country in a grand pat it ileux taken from ' Le Peri," in which M'ile Blangy also appears. The evening's entertainment will commence with the tarcetta of " Bamboozling." Miss Taylor as Kmily, and Chippendale as Sir Marmaduke Meadows. The Aliumra'The arrangements recently made by the managers of this establishment seem to give general satisfaction, if the increased number of visiters and the applause bestowed on the performances are any criterion The managers have certainly made a bit in engaging the 1 services ol'Herr Alexander, whose fame as a magician is well known in both the old world and the new. To-night he performs again, and will amuse the audience with fi feats which are almost supernatural. a ?Bowery [Amphitheatre.?Last evening the performances here were truly attractive. Mr. Kemp's feats, in connexion with those of Signor Felix Carlo, drew forth r the most enthusiastic plaudits from the spectators. The immense patronage enjoyed by the proprietors here U j the best test of the great inducements put forth in the n bills?as the vast groups of admirers of fine athletic a amusements enjoy a rich treat here each evening. The c ri ling, tumbling and various gvmnastic feat's last even- g iug showed the superior excellence of the company.? tl There is a new pantomime in course of preparation, 1 g which is highly spoken of. v Raymord ar? Wa*ir?;'s Meraoe*ic.?We have no doubt the New York public would be pleased if this grand v collection of animals and reptiles could remain in this 1 city longer than this week, but we are informed it is im , ' practicable, in consequence of previous arrangements J After a while, however, all will be satisfied, as we understand Messrs. Raymond &. Waring have it in contemplation to erect a splendid Amphitheatro end Zoological , Institute, on the ground which they at present occupy with their Menagerie. Meantime, no one should omit to , visit theii present establishment. ^ Birtiro's British North Amfricar Circus.?We 1 can inform the sight loving people of the British Pro- t vinces.that they will have an excellent equestrian troupe t utnong them this winter. The proprietor of the above g establishment leaves this city to-morrow, having been a for some days engaging various artists of talent for his f compsny?among them the great equestrian, George W. r Smith, from Astley's, London; ACallihan, the Dublin f clown, and the American Giant Mr. Bunting is a native v of New Brunswick, and knows well how to cater for n their teste*. He proceeds to Halifax, afterwards to 8t. a Johns. s Mr. Leonard, the Irish actor, is delighting the people of * Pittsburgh, Pa. The press of that city speak highly of f his talents. P Mr. Murdoch took a benefit at Cincinnati on Thursday ? last. The house was crowded, and all were satisfied. ' Mrs. Mo watt and Mr. Davenport are performing an en- { gagement, this week, at Tittsburg, Pennsylvania; IheDce ! they proceed on their tour to the southern and w estern theatres. j Mr Alexander, the young American magician, who fc earned so brilliant a reception in Paris, and was so sue- a cessfulat Falmo's, baa, we understand, taken the Ches- c nut Street Theatre, Philadelphia, for the remainder of the season. That he will be eminently successful, we do not ; t doubt, and when he returns to this city, ho will draw j even mere fashionable houses than those which greeted ( him at I'slmo's. J William H. Williams, known as " Billy Williams, of J the Yells," who was for some time in this country, died I in London on the .19th ult. I ______ I < Musical Intelligence. {^llxisai Haaz.?This great artist ii in Philadelphia. s He will give his first concert in that city, on Saturday evening next. LxoroL* Da Mrtkr.?The Baltimoreans will have an opportunity of hearing the " lion" this evening. After liis conceit in that city, ho will return to New York and 1 Boston. At the latter place he is engaged to perform at | tho* Athenaeum t i City Intelligence. | Niuht Tiiocohts ir* Nr.w York.?The totals of a lahie, exhibiting the number of visiters, and the mouey spent at different evening resorts in this city, during a : year's time, would probably astonish those who are not used to (fotham by gas light. As a rough calculation to , begin with, take the legitimate public places of amuse, mcut open during the last week. We find, in the first I place, fire theatres, a circus, u menagerie, a concert and vaudeville saloon, museum, and half a dozen exhibitions open nightly, at prices varying from one shilling to a dollar for each admission, with, at a low estimate, 6,000 evening visiters, or 30,000 in the week Then there were two or three monster concerts attended by S or fl.OOO persons, paying a dollar a head, ant) a round dozen or more of lectures, with from 00 to 600 auditors each.? ) Probably these amusements, with contingencies of kid gloves, carriage hire, V', were visited at an expense of perhaps f 30.0O0, ray the rouml sum of $ 1000,000 annually. But in the nb ive we have merely spoken of the place* wnere mi, maie ami leinain, may visii sunt peur, and snni reprocht. Now take the thouaanil bowling alley*, the billiard room*, the free and ca*y?, the raffing *hop*, the tippling hall*, with their attraction* of muaic ana song, the basement "retreat*."all places nightly sought thronged by those who seek for pleasure, or to kill time ; then add to these the crowd* in the dance houor, the groggeries. tho "hells," and the brothel* ; and if the whole could be known, the sum we hare above mentioned would have to be quintupled to approximate to ; the amount annually expended in our city at the ihrine of so-called "plMMU* " From g.i? light to sun tise nine | tenth* of the money spent in New \ ork i* for the grati- . flcation of mere personal pleasure, which fact we commend, without comment, particularly to the notice of philanthropists, who may see where five or aix million* of money annually goe* to, and if they can only con- t vince those who spend it ol the folly of their ways, and { induce them to turn the channel into their own pockets, j they will be able to unite till the end ol time. r Thk WctTHKR.?Yeiterday was remarkably fine.? 1 The sun, which, during the laat ten or twelve days, la- , vored us with hut a tew partial glimpses, shene oat in I its lull glory; snd the air was cool and hiacing during' the day. Broadway was thronged with fashionables of every description. The ladie* leaked particularly well pleased at the change in the weather, having been kept confined for tome time in consequence of the wetness of the last ten or twelve days. Wo trust the weather will continue as it promised yesterday for some time before Jack Froat sots in for the winter. Militasv.?The Oregon Guard, a volunteer company, aud composed of aome of the finest appearing body of men that we have seen for some time, passed onr office yester lay on their way to and from a target excursion. Wa noticed three holes at least in the bull s eyo. Thk IlisToatcAL Hociktv.?Thia society oelebrmted its forty-second anniversary at the Univeisity Chapel, last evening. The principal feature was an address by Mr llenry K Schoolcraft, on the antiquities of America, which was one of the most learned discourses we ever listened to, and occupied in its delivery upwards of two hour*. It wa* ao comprehensive and complete that we could not even'give a synopsis of it within our limit*.

At thia place Boston, Merry wa< so ! lonely pushed by his opponent, that he broke, i m nil gave Waugh so much the baad before ho recovered, hat ne was not able to overtake him again. Captain 1 Vaugh won this heat by about 40 yard*, in 3.39. Third Heat.?Large amounts were now ottered on J" iVaugh, at almost any odds, and some few wagers were nade at five to one. The horses eama up well for this j" icat, but soon after they started, the roan broke badly, r" jiving Waugh at least ona hundred yards the best of the JK jame, nearly the whole of which he keld to the end of ta he heat, coming in quite easy in 3 11 la Fourth Heat.?This heat was as near as could be a Pc ounterpertof the other; the roan leading at the start, !? uen breaking badly before be reached the draw gate; hen recovering himself, and going finely, but not quite . ne enough to reach his adversary; thus losing the heat j nd the match.

The following is the result of the above match ba Captain Waugh 3 111 ?x, Boston Merry 1333 10 vi. trotting ? ladt suffolk and jas. k. polk? p" polk the winner. j01 The previous match being decided, Lady Suffolk and ? as. K. Polk were called for, and were soon majestically 01 loving up and down the track, each followed by crowds, mi nxiously watching every footstep of these celebrated reatures. The condition of the Lady was as fine as pos- wt ible ; far better than on any previous occasion during Bl? he campaign this fall; while Polk looked perfection's , ' elf The friends of 8uffolk offered their funds that she , could make a heat in 5 6, which were taken as fast as Ul town. I.arge amounts were invested on time, few being ?" rilling to back the mare against Polk at any odds. First Heat.?Jas. K. Polk was assigned the inside of lie track, the Lady taking the outside position, which 1U' ras the beat place bv far, it being much harder and 7e aore dry than nearer the fence Polk and Suffolk came 111 ip steadily for the start, until within a few yards of the ** core, when Bryant drew up his mare, fearing she would Du lot go right. They went back, and then came up very Inely, when the word was given. Such a beautiful and J?1 ven stait we have seldom seen, and the hor-e and mare vent tide and side round the turn and through the gate. 111 vhen the driver of Polk, not liking the compauy of "J01 1 ry ant. nor the souDd of his voice, began to leave him a 0 rifle, and at the quarter pole he had got in front of him 3U lie length of his horse and wagon, Bryant taking a po- ! ' ition close in behind him. Without a deviation, [ pparently, of an inch in snace, thay both dashed beauti- !" ully on to the half mile pole, which thay passed in one ' ninuto and foutteen seconds. The mare then drew out , rom her trailing position, and appeared to be closing . vith Polk, and at the threenuarter jiole the head of the I'" aare was nid from view by tbe wheel of Polk's wagon; c nd this place she held until they swung round on the ?w traight stretch for home, where she, having the outside, le< ras put back into her former position, in the rear of co< 'oik. They came up in this way to tire score, Polk D>1 lassing it in 2.30, Lady Suffolk about one second behind '' ' lim. Away they dashed again, neither of them appearng to flag in the slightest, both seeming to like their >ositions, and at the first quarter of this mile, Lady Sufoik had her head very close to Conklin's ear. Thus ai hey went on, as beautiful as possible, until within a few on ards of the half-mile pole, when the Ladv, in changing ?n ler feet, broke up; but it was a Lady Suffolk break,?to j.n| ter generally an advantage?and she regained her pace ,af ind appeared in a moment to be playing away finer than c? 'ver. Albert knowing what was coming, kept the horse s" teadily at work, occasionally letting him out a trifle, so J?' hat Suffolk should not go by him, and dashed on for the be reat. As they passed the three-quarter pole, and came K? >n the stretch towards the stand, tkie excitement became W1 ntense. The friends of Suffolk would have it she must i ? 1 vin, while those of Polk were equally confident that the ['' teat was for him. Polk came up and crossed the score J?1 irst.

The time allowed between heats having f.r 'lapsed, the judges' mace was heard calling the horses to 11,1 he score. In a short time they were ready, and after an insuccessful attempt, they started finely for this heat.?

Leaving the score, Polk's dri- hii rer appeared to make an efl'ort to get away again from ro Mi/folk, being fearful of a too close approximation ; but it to ould not be done; the mare had taken a position, and ha fry ant was determined to keep it, if possible. Between he quarter and half mile poles, she went up and took ha lides with him for a while, and it waa the impression of c? lome of the lookers on that Conklin was forcing the ha lone ; however, it was not long before the mare began P" o fall back, and at the three quarters she was a length ha lehind. From this place to the stand, the contest was thi rery spirited, Bryant trying all his persuasive jiowcrs to ah ncrease the speed of his charge; but Polk'had the lead, < ind he held it home winning the heat by half a leugth, tal ind the purse.
