Patterson, of the volunteers; and a sketch of fashionable church going in New York. This number of the Weekly Herald will be a very valuable one; it will contain the lull particulars of the terrible disaster to the steamer Atlantic, with a complete list of those killed ; the great speech of the Hon. Daniel Webster, at Pki'adelphia; the preparations in Washington for the meeting of Congress ; the military and naval n sws of the week, including the account of the capture of Tampioo; the late important intelligence Ifqm Mexioo; commercial news, and per naps laie intelligence irom c-urope. Those desirous of sending copies out of the city can obtain theia, in wrappers, at the office, at sixpence each. The Ocean Steamers. The Caledonia is now in her fourteenth day, nndisfullydue at Boston. Her news is looked for with considerable interest. The Acadia, sailed from Boston on Tuesday afternoon, with forty-two passengers for Liverpool, and tlvs for Halifax. The Cambria will leave Liverpool to-morrow afternoon, for Halifax and Boston. After this, till next spring, we believe, there wil[ bo but one steamer a month. Our famous packet ships will, therefore, enter the lists for the wiuter. indeed, the Queen of the West, with two days' later news, may yet arrive before the Caledonia. Next year, fifteen or sixteen ocean steamers will be in service. The Ad Valorem Tariff?The Valuation of Merchandise?'The Ignorance and Power of Appraisers?A Remedy Rcautrod. A distinguished political economist?Kaufman?in his work on the " Manufactories of France," in speaking of those ol Lyons, observSs i " We manufacture to the amount of two hundred and seventy-three millions ot francs of silk goods alone, annually, one half of which is lor home consumption, and the other for exportation. With regard to our exportations, the manufactories of Lyons have no enemies so violent as the protective tariffs of other markets; that of the United States, the most important, as under that our productions endure the most hostility and extortion, and it is very common to see the officers of the customs of the Union, (appraisers,) from their ignorance of the true values of goods, and their want of information and experience with regard to them, use, without any cause but the right of thoir laws, the right to value merchsmdisc far above its real value;while in many cases, irom the same cause, a great amount of merchandise is passed at an under valuation. It s true, in the former case, the importer has relief in a suit against the oppression of the appraiser; but be is obliged to pay the expenses, which are not refunded to him, if he gains the suit. The rigor ol these laws engenders frauds, and in consequence, to tell the truth, the invoices presented are lor the most part fictitious. " Whem the fraud is produced, the powers lrom whom they emanated indirectly, display too much severity against them, which shows, upon examination, the immorality of the moat important regulations in matters of duties." In 1842 the tariff of the Union was changed in a manner quite unforeseen, and importations made on the faith of anterior legislation were oppreiSed with exorbitant duties, which caused the ruin 1 ?? ? ir--r vi uiMij uwuuiar'io !UiputVCI9. XUft iVitUIIIiail, 111 an able and clear review of the manufacturing interests of France, as well as of the Continent, calls the attention ef tho French government to the importance of recommending its agents and merchants to impress upon the minds of foreign authorities interested in the prosperity of their countries, the importance of appointing to office, as appraisers, persons well qualified by experience as judges of goods, as much for the internst of their revenue, as a protection lor the honest merchant against those who arm themselves with all kinds of certificates, which in reality, such as consular certificates, only facilitate frauds; as it is well known American Consuls, like all others, arc totally unacquninted with merchandise. Tnis Mr. Kaufman insists upon as the interest of all governments, of morality and of civilization: for the turpitude which is generated from a laxity of principle with regard to custom-house oaihsis a curse to the present state of society. The arbitrary method ot valuing merchandise entered under the various tariff acts of the past twenty years, has ever been a cause of much complaint. The appraisers in our custom houses have the power of regulating the rate of duty upon different articles, almost independent ef the act emanating from Congress, merely by the method of valuation. The Seoret&ry of the Trea wary no re r has used proper discrimination in ap. pointing appraisers, as the personal interest or party position of applicants lor, or occupants of, thesH office, have had more influence than qnali, tieation. Under the operation of the ad valorem act there is a very great held for carrying on extensive frauds in the valuation of foreign manufactures, particularly those from France; and there is, therefore, greater necessity for the employment of persons, as appraisers, having a full and perfect knowledge of the value of these goods, than ever before existed. In nearly every suit which the government has been concerned in with onr importers, on account of the supposed false valuation of goods, the government has been cast, which is sufficient evidence that the appraisers have been almost universally wrong. These suits are extremely vexatious, expensive, and annoying to the importers concerned, notwithstanding the results in their favor,and are avoided in every way, even by submitting to extortion and abuse on the part of the appraisers ; and the government should, in justice to this large and important class of merchants, remove every obstruction to a just and fair method of arriving at a proper valuation of foreign merchandise. iuuv|riiiiwui 01 me megai acta or those government officers, in their official capacity, from wlueh there ta frequently no appeal, wo have heard of innumerable instances of petty malice in appraiamg and pawing invoices of merchandise, whioh should, upon representation, cause their immediate removal, but which have been passed over by the higher authorities in silence, and tlioee practising them suffered to remain and prey upon thoee coming within their power. Many of these things, we feel confident, never have reached the notice of the Secretary of the Treasury, or would have been remedied at once. Arr airs i* Euaors ?The steamer now dne will probably bring us some further evidence of the feeling among the rival powers of Europe, relate to the marriage league between France and l^pam Theogh sufficient time has not yet elaps *d, nor decided measures taken, to call forth a hostile commitment verbally,or actuatly,from any of the transatlantic potentates; yet a cloud na* arisen in the pahuoal horizon, which, though us yet not larger than a man's hand, or the ring given by it, may be fraught with trouble end terror, and rum the whole continent into another vast battle Held. That England was oaught in the trap she had est lor Franoe, and lost the prise at the very time her diplomatic strategies seemed nearest to sueee *s, is very evident, and la M'r pave* has headrd !. 'i movements as thoroughly as would have ?a>ned Bolts'* anathemas against Tyler The former country sevar loet tight of the advent*get that might accrue to herself by securing a firm alHan-e with Spain, a land which, although now debated and sunken by internal dissensions and ill-advised rulers, would, under control such as Eugland would And for her, take her stand again ; as a great maritime and commercial nation ; but the Coburg reputation for allording able huti bands, although backed by the whole influence of the English cabinet and English agents, availed not against the shrewd policy of Louis Philipe, than whom a more wily politician never existed, not even excepting Cardinal Richelieu. The French policy has succeeded; the Coburg candidate is still in the matrimonial market, and othrr suiters lose sight of their own defeat in witnessing the defeat ot England. The Due de Montpensier returns thanks for a brunette wife and a rich do wry. The Timet newspaper overruns with threats of vengeance, and the ministerial organs of Franoa throw off all disguises, talk of coalitions, and declare that all the continent of Europe, with the United States, are the natural enemies of England. What will bo the event of this new stir in the cauldron, is at nre!U?nt nor v?rw cloor .ill rise lo the top?what will remain at the bottom? and what will be thrown away a* scum, is not yet to be foreseen ; but, perhaps, our next advices will give us farther light. That there will be any war, for some years to come, we do net believe?at least, not so long as the King of France can, by his subtle polioy, ward it off; and though, with his usual foresight, he is prepared for banishment, dethronement, or death, still his whole course is one expressive of, and guaranteeing tranquillity; but in case old troubles should be revived?recrimination be followed with non-intercourse?and non intercourse with open hostilities ? it would be difficult to say upon what side and what part of the world's chess board different nations would be found. The French papers speak ol a tri-union of strength by land and sea of the three great powers of France, Russia, and the United States; of course Spain would be with them. On the other hand, our own country has gradually been approaching, for years, nearer and nearer to England in friendly relations, and much ill feeling has arisen between her and France; and Russia may for ence keep her pledges, and lulling back upon the treaty of Utrrcht, besides giving way to her anti-Catholic predilections, be found also arrayed against France. It would certainly be a great and strange revolution from the days ol Napoleon, were England and the United States te be found ranged against France and Spain. Perhaps another fifty years would see Spain and our country, under the stars and j stripes, joined to the colors of Ferdinand and Isa i bulla, warring against France and England. Indeed, there is as much probability of the one as the other. The age is too far advanced for enlightened nations to militate against their own interests by the use of fire and sword among themseUesSafety valves are found for the escape of mil a ry enthusiasm in foreign conquests. India, the Pacific Islands, Algiers, and Mexico, will draw b ?od from the three great powers of the earth, srfiicient to abate all pugilistic fevers. We shall look with interest over our files by Hie next steamer, and such extracts as we find 1 evincing the state of the public puUe, will be I translerred to our columns. TlieatrleaU. Pars Theatre.?Notwithstanding the disagreeublenets of the weether, the Park theatre was filled with a most respectable audience?ner is it surprising that the last two or three nights of a play so eminently superior in itself and its production, to almost any other ever put upon the American stage, should draw crowds of those who now wish to avail themselves of the last opportuni. ties they will have of witnessing it >lr. Keen's personification of the character of King John is most admirai ble, expressing, almost to nature, the varied passions of the wicked monarch. Mrs. Kean has added to her fame in her profession, as Constaaoe, and her acting in the character of this character, would stamp her aean actress of the highest rank. Were we to particular ixe all who perform creditably in " King John," we v..? u i?J ? beards, cvau to the supernumeraries ; it U enough to hj that there ia but little it any room for improvement Tbia evening " King John" will be repeated, after which the farce oi " .Miseries of Human Life " To-morrow evening Mr*. Cbarlee Keen will take a benefit. Bowaav Thiatbs.?"Futman" vai repeated at thil theatre on laat evening, and with the tame auccese that ! attended the representation on the previous evenings? , Vache as Washington, looked exoollent, and his appear1 ance was martial and dignified, like that which characterized the great hero and father ef our country. Milner, as the hero of the piece, sustained his part admirably, while Mrs Sergeant's Kate Putnam was admirably sustained. The " Foundling of the Forest" was next pro duced Neefieaa Do Valmont.Vach* as Oasperd.and Clark as Florian, performed with their usual ability?while Hadaway displayed his usual talents in the character of L'Kclair. To night there will be a repetition of "Futnam;" the "Foundling of the Forest," and " Beauty and the Beast," will be represented- The engagement of Mr. Murdoch is further postponed in consequence of the continued indisposition of Mrs. t^oleman Pope, whose friends at the Bowery will joyfully hail her restoration to health, it is hoped, ia a few days. OasaawicN Theatbx.?This evening Mr. John Dunn, who is certainly a comedian ef much merit, will appear in his fsvorite character of " That Rasoal Jack." The drama of " Robert Macaire" will be performed with the full cast of the company, Mr. Dunn and Mr. H. Chapman appearing in the principal characters. The farces of a " Kiss in the Dark," and of the " Artful Dodger," will be added. Besides these four sterling pieces, Mr quay le will smg two of his choice ballads; Miss Julia Vincent ' will appear in a new pat teul, and Mr Yates will dance 1 a pat greteifus. This is a strong bill, and will fill the house. Alhamba?Herr Alexander is indeed a magician whose powers of deluding are only equalled by those of amusing. As for endeavoring to discover the reason : wherefore, or the cause why, his magical exhibitions so iiuwivuim; " w"> ?i 4??u?o i do rapisi* ty, ease an I manner with which hi* experiment! are carried out, are truly wonderful.

This Siece we regret to say, must alter thia week be with rawn to make room for greater novelties, which have been long under way. We allude to a splendid new ballet ot action, which Signor Kelix Carlo will produce under his supervision, and also hia beautiful exhibition of Orecian statuary, or models of the antique. This will be a superb affair. It waa represented by Carlo at the 1 Cirquo Ofyaspi'fita, in Paris, upwards of 170 oonsecatlve nights.

They are ef little worth to themselves, and too many of them'a disgrace to their connections.

Many of these men are possessed of a good degree of intelligence. Alas, what a miserable use they mAe of it !

The real par tiea are Caroline N-idine and Frank Jackaon Nodine, her haeband Mn. Nedine filed a bill on the 34th ef June laat. in the Court of Chancery, charging her huiband with having committed varioua acta of adultery with a girl : named Mary Naah, from the month ef April, 1846, to the latter end of the month of June in the ?ame year. Mra. Nedine alao charged by her bill, that her husband and Mary Naab, alio committed aeveral acta of adultery in Connecticut, previous to the year 1846, but the latter acta of adultery were not in iaaue, except so far as laying a ground for the acts of adultery in thia State. Mr WiLLiaMi opened for the detenee. He stated they ' would prove that the prosecution was got up, not by Mrs. Nedine, but by her friends, for the purpose of dev ! Driving Nodine of ei much ef his property as they oonldt.

Mr. Williams made some other statements in relation to : Mrs. Nodine, but no evidence of the facts referred to wan given; we therefore omit them. I Two or three witnesses were called for the defence, amongst whom was a man named 81ator and the brother of the defendant. Slator swore that he called on Mrs. | Nodine by directions of her husband to give her money, i and to endeavor to prevail en her to return home and set' tie the matter; that sne then admitted she had forgiven her husband what had happened in Connecticut Nodine, ; the other witness, testified that be heard Mrs. Nodine aay that ahe filed the bill to gat half her husband's proparty, and to give him as much trouble as ahe could.? The case for the defence was here closed,and counsel on I both sides summed up Judge Barculo charged the Jury. : He told them that it waa an issue from chancery, to try . certain allegations and charges made by Mrs Nodine 1 against her husband. The defendant might ha said, have set up various defences: that is, a condonation, or adultery on the pert of his wire; the defendant has only set up the first defence,and relies on it, and insists that uo proot of adultery has been given in this State; and the sole question tor you to try is, whether adultery has been committed in this State before the 2*th of June last. ; He then directed the attention of the Jury to the evidence | adduoed by the plaintiff'a counsel on this point Ha told the jury that the circumstances whioh toon place in Connecticut were not to be the basis of a verdict in this cause, nor are they to be taken into consideration except to far as they may give a color to what has or may have happened between the parties in this city; but It was for fhn Inee ?si aao mkslkar ikn nartiaa *kn had f mift adultery icConncctlcut would not do the turn* in Now York.

This highly valuable Institution having latterly been ' considerably enlarged, and a new church having been added to the building, the edifice waa consecrated yes terday, before a highly fashionable audience, consisting j principally of ladies, and the whole proceedings were deeply interesting. This churoh.erected lor religious wor' ship by the inmates of the institution, speaks largely for the rapid progress of enlightenment that has Uken place amongst the pupils?end the mute homege of the heart, offered up there, will be acceptable to Him who can make " the dumb to speak and the deaf to hear " The exhibition of tone of the pupils was not the least imposiag pert of the proceedings, end elicited the most warm admiration from the vast assemblage of ladle* and gen. tlemen present. Hsavar P. Put, Esq., the President, occupied the chair on the occasion. On his right aat the Rev. Doot Adams, the Rev. Doct. Turner, Professor of the Hartford Asylum, Henry E. Davios und Walley. Esq*. On his loft aat the Rav. Dra. Tyng and Milladoler. General Wetmere, and Francis Ilail, Esq. Among the company invited for the occasion, wai the Vice Chancellor Sandford, Aldermen Compton an<t Inhnian tovether with several of our most leudlne citizen*. The pupil*, both male end female, amounting in all to two hundred, were ranged in front of the building, and among them were several young ladie* of great peraenal beauty, and beleoging to tome of our moit rer table famili**, who have placed them in the instituto receive instruction under the auperior talent* of its professors. Wktmore opened the proeeedingi, by an! nouncing the programme on part or the Committee of Arrangement*; upon which Hanar E. Davie*, Esq., delivered the opening addreaa, giving a detailed narrative of the ri?e and *ucce**ful ( progress of the inatitntion, under the able tutelage ef it* professors, a* well a* through the fettering protection of ' the Legislature and the liberal contribution* of private : citizen*. He commenced hi* addre** by stating, that in 18-27 the Legislature made a grant of ten thousand [ dollars to aid in the erection of a suitable building, ! on condition that the manager* should raise sn equal ; turn by voluntary contribution*. The corner stone was 1 laid on the 10th of October, 1 27, by the Hon. A. C. | Flagg, the superintendent of common school*. The ; building was first occupied in April, 1820, and cost the sum of $35,000, $14,000 of whicn were contributed by | eur fellow citizens, and the premises mortgaged to pay I the balance?$11,000. From 1820 to 1830 the average i numberof pupils was 66 In 1830, the Legislature au1 thorised the education of 94 additional pupils In 1833, 40 ' more beneficiaries were added, and in 1884 the building 1 was enlarged by the erection of two wings, in 1841, the , Legislature incraased the pupils to 128, and aubse quently a range of work shops was erected,-and in 1846 the Legislature voted an annual donation of $6,000 for the benefit of the ioititution. The whole number ol pupils, including 190 sent by the State, and these, together with these supported by the corporation of this eitjr, and some from the State of New Jersey, made an aggregate of 900 pupils now in this institution. He next adverted to location and surrounding grounds which were granted the institution by the corporation, at a nominal rent; and then alluded to the economy of its internal arrangements. The recent improvements embraced the erec: tion of two new and commodious wings, providing sitting rooms for the pupils of both sexes, and also large | ana well aired dormitories, commodious and spaciohs i halls to the main building, and the enlargement of the ; dining hall ; beautiful and ornamental perticos in front and rear of the building ; together with the erec. tion of the spacious and elegant chapel they had met to dedicate to the service of Him who had "opened the ears ott he deaf and made the dumb to speak"?these constituted the chief improvements. After dilating upon the manifold advantages to be derived from the institution, and dwelling upon the vast benefits that already have resulted from the institution, in advancing the happiness of the class of pupils that belong to it, he cited the case of a marriage that took place in the town of Westerlo, between two mutes, named Robert Cummings and Miss Susan Edget, about a year ago, and they now enjoyed most of the blessings and happiaoss of ordinary ei'isens. After briefly commenting upon this fact, as one of the happy dispensations, under Provieence, which God bestows upon his children in the world below, Mr. D. cj ncluded. i ne mt. ur. i tkfl nere roan cnipwrirom 01. jooii i gospel, appropriate to the occasion, which referred to : the treat miracle of the Saviour, in making the dumb to peak and the deaf to hear. Dr. Adams next offered up the dedicatory prayer, upon which The Pbesidert, Mr. Pset, delivered the dedicatory addreaa, chiefly on the general advantage* of the Institution, and the great superiority of syatem under which they were instructed,they differing materially from the German, and some ol the European system* In the course of his remarks, he took occasion to say that all systems ware unknown until about two and a half centuries ago, when the destitution of the afllieted in such cases, first arrested the attention of a philanthropic gentleman in Paris. After reviewing the progress or education on this subject, and going at length into its general history, he next touched upon the subject matter which had called them together on this occasion, and concluded. The next, and truly interesting part of the proceedings, was the exhibition of the pupils. Miss Many, a young lady of great talents, with some other female pupils, Master Ketchum, and others, forming the first class, wrote several pieces in answer to interrogatoriesrfrom the professors, with a degree of rapidity that astonished all present. Indeed, all the pupils showed an extraordinary degree of proficiency and advancement.? Seme gave, as their reasons for being pleased at having had the advantages of learning, that they liked it, beeause it enabled them to read the Bible; others because they could read the life of Washington and of other eminent patriots of the country ; but the aaost amusing part of the entiM exhibition was, the representation of the lawyer, the doctor, the clergyman and the dandy, by Master Gowage, one ot the pupils The clergymen present enjoyed the graphic fidelity with which their profession was portray ad, while the ladies were kept in a roar. The whole routine was admirably depicted.? Next came the doctor; and every thing, from tho lancet to the dose of physic, waa given to Ufa. Than the lawyer?the ill disguised affectation of seal?his gravity in the study, hia blustering and earnest address to the jury ?down to nonkatin* Hia faa?all wara rivan with asto nishing accuracy?and kept the whole audience convulsed with laughter. The dandy wai next portrayed,and never waa Broadway ewell io admirably carioatured?the eve glaae?the cane, the pompoue walk? all were well hit off. Indeed, it would repay a visit in i ttaelf to aee thii part of the exhibition. But the moit I impoaing and interesting part of thia exhibition, was the j recitation of the " Lord's Prayer," by Mine Many. The I mute homage of the heart efferedTup in supplicatory prayer to Him, who is the father of all, giving power ta the heart to atter from the hand what the tongue could : not express, had a deep effect upon the audience. Theie was a solemnity about this part of the services that was deeply affecting, and all heartily joined in with silent, ' but sincere, homage of the heart After prayer, the whole audience went through apart1 meats which are magnificently fitted up. The sitting rooms, dormitories, culinary department dining rooms, and the entire internal arrangements, the furniture, all I show a degree of neatness that exhibits the comforts which the pupils enjoy in the institution Mrs Uallaudet, whe had been one of the pupils, and has lately been married, was an object of much interest. The whole proceedings terminated with a very splendid collation, consisting of cold meats, iams, jellies, he., I and served nn in excallent atvle. and a licensed with e I hospitality highly creditable to tha whole Board of Director*, Committee of Arrangement* end the Inatitntion ' itaelf, which, we are happy to And, U in ao flourishing a | cnndttitiou.
