Affaire In Congress?Proceedings? Progress of the Session. The first month of this session has passed, and not the first movement has been made towards providing ways and means to carry on the war, euuer oy malting loans or uy increasing me sources of revenue. There are but two short months left of the present term, and whatever measures are necessary to carry on the government during the whole of the year 1847, must be perfected and adopted between this and the 4th of March next. There is a vast deal of business to do in the next eight weeks, if the party in power wish to avoid an extra session. We have had enough of extra sessions, within the past ten years. Both parties have had such a taste as will, we trust, deprive them of an appetite, for all time. It is, therefore, for the interest of both parties to drive ahead business as rapidly as possible, so that the country may be relieved Irom the excitement ofpolitical contests atthe seat ol government for the full time provided by tfte constitution. The most important measures called for are such as the position of our foreign artairs point out. Congress should at once adopt the most extensive means of preparation and of action. We are losing much valuable time, and unless more vigorous measures are resorted to, the sickly season will be upon us and a suspension of operations on the Gulf coast will be the result. Congress must furnish the funds. It is not suf- ' ftcient to point out the way, and authorize the Se- j cretary of the Treasury to raise money, but it must be prepared to obtain supplies at all risks and at all sacrifices: and for this reason, it is highly necessary that immediate measures should be adopted to replenish the treasury, so thut we may provide against any and every contingency ; so that if one plan fails, there will be an opportunity to perfect and pass another. It is particularly necessary that the executive part of the government should have the counsel and advice of the representative part, in time of war, and although the constitution does not provide lor any extension of this session, there is yet time to place the country n a proper position to sustain itself during the , recess of Congress, without embarrassing the different branches ot the executive department. There is no justice in throwing the responsi- ' bility, or, we might say, odium of the financial J difficulties with which the treasury of the caun- i try is surrounded, upon the Secretary of that bureau. The Secretary merely carries out the measures Congress marks out. He has nothing but the credit of the government to work upon, and if that fails, it remains for Congress to give him other materials, if it has any at command. We have very little faith in the financial abilities of the members of Congress, generally. There is any quantity of theoretical knowledge concentrated at the seat of government, but when you come to the practical part of it, there is more real genius in Wall street, than in both houses oi Congress. We can dig out of almost ; any cellar in Wall street mora Chancellors of the ! Exchequer, more Chairmen of Finance Committees, and a greater number of practical financiers, than in any other part of the Union. The Secretary of the Treasury sent to this city tor aid in drawing up. and in perfecting his ad va lorem tariff, and we would advise him to try the same experiment in regard to the public finances, j Let the Secretary send an agent into Wall street, any day about 12 o'clock, to pick out about a do- ! zen of the leading financiers who congregate there about that hour, and request their attendance at Washington, and we will guaranty (if he will take their advice,) a better system of finance than Congress can give him. These Wall street financiers will not only tell him how to raise money, but some of them will put their hands in their pockets and lend the government all it wants. This we call practical financiering. Mexican Generals?Who is Urrea 1?Not the i least important items in the recent news from 1 Mexico, are those which relate to the distribution | and organization ol the Mexican army. That army numbers forty-one thousand men, of whom twenty-five thousand are with Santa Anna, in the city of San Luis de Fbtosi, eight thousand in the iertile vale ot San Francisco, and a like number at Tula, a town distant from San Luis eighty miles, and lrom Tampico one hundred and twenty. Of the eight thousand men at Tula, two thousand five hundred have been formed into a corps of.observation, and the command thereof given to General Jose Manuel Urrea. Very few military adventurers have experienced greater vicissitude of fortune, than this Urrea.? 14a ia n nor ivm nl th? ilpnu rfmpnf nf Snnnrsi v Si. "**' .- ? -?-"WW. ?W W. -WW?.? J ?naloa?and during the war of independence, fought in the ranks oi the patriots, at the age of twenty. It is said he defeated, at that early age, a body of Spanish troops, under circumstances highly creditable to himself.? When Santa Anna invaded Texas, in 1836, he gave to Urrea the command of a brigade ; and | throughout the campaign, Urrea conducted himself to the perlect satisfaction ol his chief, but scarcely to that of the friends ef humanity?lor it was he who presided at the execution of the prisoners taken at Goliad. Execution did we call itl It was a murder; and as lout a one as ever man perpetrated, or God avenged. Yet we will do Urrea the justice to say, that, in conversation, lie often regrets the share he had in the massacre of the Texans. though he emteavors to exculpate j himself in this manner: "What, under the cir ! cumstances, could I dpi My orders to shoot the i prisoners were explicit and peremptory; and you know that it is a soldier's duty to obey the orders of his superior?not t.> question their propriety." This Urrea spent the eighteen months that sue ceededthe battle of San Jacinto, in comparative obscurity. Soon alter that battle, be received from the President, Bustamentc, the governorship of Sonora y Smaloa. But the government of a remote district of Mexico?a district almost beyond the confines of civilization ? and the population of which is not one-half of that of the city of New York?could j not satisfy the ambitious and active minded | U rraa. So ia 1838, he " pronounced" for federalism, and commenced a war with the central government, which lasted four yea-s. During that period Urrea must have fought twenty or thirty battles and skirmishes, of some ol which the western coast ol Mexica was the scene?of others, the eastern. In some,be was signally successful; in others, he had the greatest difficulty in escaping with his life. Urrea is barely fifty years of age, though the hard life he has led has given him a somewhat older appearance. His manners are very polished, resembling those of a French general of the old regime. His administrative talents are good. I it cannot be denied that he is an accomplished general ; but at the same time, it must be admitted that he is sometimes wanting in decision, when decision is most wanted. It is worthy of note, that the corps which Urrea now commands, is composed of the very best infantry regiments in the Mexican service?these are the Cortagnardia, of Tampico, the Puebla regiment, and the corps af veterans. May we not infer from this circumstance, that Santa Anna has assigned to Urrea an enterprise of "great pith and moment 1" Thk Northers of thk Ott.p of Mkxioo?The loss ot the Somers it indeed an awful catastrophe. In the twinkling of an eye, twenty-three as gallant men as ever trod ship's deck, have met their deaths?and that, too, almost within hearing ot the cheers of the Mexicans, who had assembled fn the Mole of Vera Cruz! Lot it be borne in mind, that the Somers is i the third U nited States man of war lost m the , Gulf of Mexico this season. Will it be the last! We are afraid not. The season of the Nortet, or gales from the North, will not be over till April. Till then, the gales will blow at intervals of two or three weeks, and always with appalling violenco. A norther generally lasts two or three days?it comes on gradually, so that the mu- ' riner who is unaccustomed to navigate the Gulf of Mexico, is often unsuspicious of danger, and flatters himself with the idea that the " stiff breeze," whioh impels his vessel onward, wilj soon carry her to her port qf destination. And so it does?but not in safety. For the " stiff breeze" freshens into a gale, and the gale into a hurricane; and at length the vessel strikes an one of the ro:ks with which the harbor of Vera Cruz is studded. In that harbor the anchorage ground is perhaps the worst in the world. At Vera Cruz no number oi anchors will hardly keep a ves? el from going ashore in a norther. All that the captain of a vessel can do, under such circumstances, is to slip his anchors and stand out to sea immei liately ' Vessels of war, even those belonging to friendly powers, are not allowed by the Mexican government to enter the harbor ofVera Cruz; they always anchor at Sacriflcios, a barren island at the entrance of the harbor. At Sacriflcios the an. chorage is pretty good. Mexican men of war, when there arc any such in the harbor of Vera Cruz, are always moored to rings set in I the walls of the Castle of San Juan de Ulloa, and by that means are secure from the effects ofa norther. j When a norther blows at Vera Oruz, the air j becomes very ci.ld, and is charged with clouds of j dust, so that, at such times, people keep within j doors, as mucn as po*siDi?. xet it appears mat during the norther of the 8th December, a crowd j of Mexicans collected on the Mole of Vera Cruz, 1 to watch the destruction of the Somcrs, and to j gloat over the sufferings of the crew. Could we j have a stronger proof than this of the malignity j ot the Mexicans? j Another New Packet Ship ?The splendid new packet ship Constitution will be launched to-morrow, at 10 o'clock, from the yard of Messrs Brown & Bell, on the East river. This packet is the largest ever built in this country, and is probably the largest merchant . ship in the world. She is fifteen hundred tons | in size, and all her arrangements for passongers, i Ac , are comparatively as ample. i Alia tc tn liu /tnmman/lafl liu Pantnin TnVln Hrif* 1 ton, late of the Rochester, a skilful navigator and a gentleman, and one who is esteemed all over the world. In his life he has been to all parts of the universe, and he isiuniversally respected. The launch of the Constitution will be a magnificent sight,'almost equal, although, perhaps, in a different way, to the launch of the great Constitution of the Union in 1789. That of '89 exhibited the spirit of the people ; that of'47 shows their skill. Revolt on Boakd op the Ship Eliza Warwick?Captain Hoffman, of the tow boat Suffolk, states that llie crew of the Eliza Warwick, Capt. Weeks, bound to London, while on her way down the bay on Friday, in tow of his vessel, refused to perform duty, under the plea of not having a sufficient complement to man her. They declared they would not go to sea. The Suffolk left her near the tail of the West Bank. Captain I Hoffman says that soon after ho left her, the re-, port of pistols, and a scuttling noise was heard on board the ship, and the anchor let go. Affairs in Maryland.?We have received the message of Oov. Pratt delivered to the Legislatnre on the 29th ult. It is almost as long as the|President's last message. After referring to the Mexican war, the ardor with which Maryland responded to the call lor volunteers, and expressing some chagrin that her troeps were not all accepted by the U. 8. Government, it thus endorses the measures of the latter : loulspohm iruin uauu ana lempenidieui iu iuv& at mu darker side of every queition, 1 cannot aeo, ai some do, in every victory achieved by American valor, a lurking danger to the institutions of the country; and although 1 am tally impressed with the conviction that in other hands the present war might have been avoided by the Federcl Government, beneficially and with honor to the country, I cannot view the mere expenditure of the public treasure, as outweighing the national benefits which have so far resulted from the conflict. A national debt is spoken of as a blessing to the country, or at least something to be converted into one. ] The financial part of the message has already been : reviewed in our columns. The calamity defeating the completion of the Ohio and Chesapeake railroad, and the interest of the State in the Baltimore and Ohio railroad, at present, arc spoken of at length; in fact, the great body of the document relates to the internal improvements of the State The late vote of the Stab), making the meetings of the legislature biennial, does mot suit the views ot Gov.Pratt: it will in his opinion throw too much burthen and responsibility upon the shoulders of the executive. Tho closing part of the message contains good advice. It says: I cannot rosist the inclination which impels me to advert to the practico which has prevailed in the legislature, of delaying its action noon the subjects of paramount importance, until the last hours of the session. 1 Kvery observant statesman will recognise in this praci tice the prominent cause of that legislation which has resulted so perniciously to the State. If you will take tip the statute books for the past ten years, and turn to the laws which have oppressed and weighed down the energies of your constituents, you will find that all of isiifKin tlvran Hnta nf thn oil inurnmont of the session at which they were enacted. Theatrical. Far* Theatric-To-morrow evening the Viennoito Children will ap|>ear in one of their moat popular divertisements ; besides which, Dyoit, Fisher, Barrett, with others of the excellei^tock company of the Park, will appear in two sterhng^nterludes This will be the last week of the clulren, in this city, and tuey will have crowded houses. Buwkrv Thcatr*.?"Putnam," "Jack Sheppard," and "Black-Eyed Susan," were performed here last evening, bringing out tho talents of the entire company. Mrs Booth, as Jack Sheppard, performed with much cleverness. Mr Vacbe's Owen Wood, Hadaway's Blueskin, Clarke's Danville, and Misa Uarney's Edge worth Bess, were admirably performed. "Black-Eyed Susan" sue ceeded. Mrs. Sergeant's Susan was peiformed with much talent The hills for to-morrow evening will be found highly attractive. American Circus?The twin ponies and May Fly performed last evening their u?ual feats, und the entire house was rnthuaiastic in its applause Mr. Sands and children delighted the house by their extraordinary gymnastic (eat*. Mr Buggies, Conover and Master Humander, also p-rformed with their usual ability The bills of to-morrow evening will be found highly attractive. Bowrrt / mrhithkatr*.?The extraordinary talents of the company here have drawn nightly vast crowds to this popular circus. Tkers will be a powerful combination of talent presented here during the ensuing week. Carlo, Gossin, and Gardner, in themselves, would draw full houses, independent of the high talent* of the company. The hills for to-morrow evening will ba found highly attractive. Alnambsa.?The great magician, Harr Alexander, ha* astonished and delighted thousands, during the holidays, not only with his wonderful tricks and delusions, hut with the presents that he makea to his audience. To-morrow evening there will be a great variety of entertainments at thia saloon, Including instrumental and vocal music, under the direction of Mr George Loder. A. A. Adams, ii playing an engagement at Pittsburgh Ckntkat> America.?Capt. Mclntyre, ol the hark Ellen Augusta, reports that his vessel wns chartered by a Mr Bell, at New York, to curry out to Blueflelds, Central America, thirty mon and a <jnantity of provisions. After landing them, Mr. B enticed Ihs crew ashore, with the intention of detaining her, and afterwards to load her with mahogany for Now Yerk. A Prussian lirig, with 110 emigrants destined for Texas, put into Blueflelds for water, Ac., and Ball persuaded the poor Hermann to stay there. They were perishing daily of a very malignant fever, which prevailed, having nothing to eat but green cocoa nuts and plantains. V. 8. Commissioner's Office. Before Commissioner Morton. J as. 3.?

I Calls In Olden Tlmea and at the Present DAy?The hast Calf?Incidents, die. | New Vesr'i was all that the thousands of callers and . other pleasure seekers could wish. The mist of the early morning cleared up in comfortable season, and the sun came out in all the brilliancy of a clear April morning. The call makers Wei's at their day's work in good time, and at 10 o'clock, the streets were fairly alive. Omnibuses rumbled over the pavements, filled to their utmost caoacitv: carriages rattled through the streets in every direction ; every thing with wheel*, springs, and eats, capable of performing the requisite duty, was preased Into the service of the day ; the side wallu were thronged with foot passengers, and every thing betokened a " Happy New Vear." F.ven the beggar children | 1 who were out with ample basket* to receive the contri| hutions of the benevolent, looked happy in spite, of their professional attempt to seem otherwise, Rattle, rattle, rattle.tramp, rap-a-tat-tat-tat, jingle, jingle, "Good morning!" "Ah, how de do ? A happy New Vear to ye " "O, is it you? Walk in." "Ah, ha, 1 knew you'd call," bo. he. were part of the distinguishable sounds which fell upon the ear of the hurrying travellers In the streets In the houses no less happiness was visible.? The very best looks, the very sweetest smiles, and most cordial greetings, welcomed the visiters, and the very greatest profusion of tempting delicacies, arranged in the most tasteful manner, upon rich tables, were pointed to . wards by the most delicate fingers, and invitations to partake of the proffered bounty, were made in tones perfectly irresistible . " Health," " long life," " the return of many New Vear days," and other sentiments appropriate to the occasion,were drunk in wine,punch, coffee, lemonade,! Proton water,and other beverages,suited to the tastes of the visiters,or the principles of the "heads of the uouseuoiu wnere me urn were made. Thai commenced the day,and thui it progressed till the afternoon, when the eifecta of the "ardent" upon the ardour of the oalleri began to exhibit itself; young gentleman began to walk wonderfully, erect, ai if they would lay,"we are not in the leait tinder the influence of any thing exhilerating." Towards night the bucki were observed to step cautiously, and at a later hour many were observed in the act of making ? the"Cast c a u, nu presented an appearance similar to that represented bin the above cut. So, it will be perceived, New Year's day has its ills as well as its joys, and there is not the slightest doubt that many, like Byron, were calling lustily for "hock and soda water" yesterday morning. The custom of making New Year's calls originated , with the Dutch settlers in New York city and | other parts of the State. It was with our anoesters quite a different thing from that which the march of im- I provement has made it. In olden times, the callers were, as now, shown into the best apartment, where on a table | was placed a huge dish, generally made of earthen ware, i and filled with doughnuts, prepared for the occasi on by j our worthy grandames, who offered to their gues ts the bounties of the board, accompanied by an invitation to drink cider at their pleasure from the single mug, which paused from mouth to mouth, and was re-fllled a s often I as it became empty; and it is not recorded of any visitant of those days, that he refused to eat doughnuts or drink ! cider, when invited to do so by the good dame. Things are altered now. and the descendants of those doughnut- ! eating, cider-drinking worthies, would doubtless feel themselves highly offended If they were to be entertain- | ed after the simple manner of their ancestry, which they 1 are so proud to claim. The incidents of the day, apart ! from the great feature, were not very numerous; in tact, almost every thing was completely swallowed up by tha ffmat husineea of call-making. The " Fancy Guar?" turned out for their aecond annual parade, : and marched through the principal atreeta. Their gro- i tesque.appearance made them decidedly the liena of the hour, wherever they made their appearance. They mua- ; tared about forty muaketa, and wore uniforma of high color, atriped figured calico with black wool hata, the | broad brima of which were bound with yellow quality, and the crowna aurmounted by the talleat kind or iantaatical feathera. They marched remarkably well, and had in their train huadreda of admiring urchins, black and white. Among the vehiclea chartered for the day, waa a root beer wagon, named " Dandy Jim," which furnished a I conveyance for about fifteen jolly fellows, who made calls in company. Kipp and Brown's canopied omnibus was also brought into service by a party of callers. Just at night a carnage load of hapny ones were making their way through Fourth street, when, as they arrived at the corner of Broad way ,a wheel came eff, and as noither love ; nor money could procure for them another vehicle, they were reduced to the necessity of continuing their journey of pleasure on foot. A lady up town had on her table, among other delicacies, a nng turkey, whose unseemly le?s, all bare as thoy were, so sneered inn sense ui propriety u> u?c ?, m= young ladies of the house, that the drumsticks wero, at nor suggestion, encased jo a pair of pantalets, before the bird was allowed to make its appoarance at table. In the alternoon, while all was hilarity and confused mirth arour.d, a mournful procession was seen making its way through the Bowery, marching to the solemn music of muffled drums and brass instruments, discoursing tho notes of a death march It was the funeral procession ' of a deceased member of the Herman Benevolent Society. The procession was a long one, and wound its wy through several streets, till it arrived at the place of burial, at the corner of Second avenue and First street There the coffin was lowered to its resting place, and that noble band of brethren, before the grave was closed, joined in singing a farewell hymn to the departed. The sound of their rich (ieiman voices, sustaining the four parts of soprano, alto, tener, and hass, came from the grave yard in the greatest harmony, and seemed to be wafted away by the gentle air, but detaining, ere the notes were lost, many a pedestrian, who stepped to listen to the sounds produced by that mourning hand For the time, the spirit of the scene was changed, and gaiety gnve way to a feeling of solemn respect for the ueud. The hymn was at length closed, the sexton perfho i-nrtti, was Inst In tho siirht of the spectators, tlie members of the xociety formed again in pmc-ssion. the brass hand atrurk tip n stirring air, and the long tiain move-1 oil'in quick time tomp trad with that winch measured their tread hefore; the gates of the cemetery weie elated, solemnity was exchanged far mirth, and the contused sounds ol the former hour again met the ear. to drive away (he remembrance ot the cerei monies just past, as if he wave ot oblivion had swept over the scene, and obliterated it There was a grand ruan in the evening towards tho doois of tue Broadway t abernacle, where Yankee Hil receivetl the calls ol his friends, at a quarter dollar a head, and many atich quarter days the comedian would, no doubt, be glad to enjoy. Thus we go 1mm the funeral to the play ; and the forms and ceremonies, and, perchance, the earnest grief observable at the tirst, is soou changed tor the enjoyment of the last ; and, in this respect, the initial day of 1*47 may answer as u miniature ot the year itself. And let it be so : let cankering grief be n Ics prominent f#atme of the coming year than joy and the interchange of kiud words aim expressions of friendship , may plenty drown the board, and joy rule the year. Musical. The Aront-ONEOtss.?The concert of these extraordinary performers on Thursday evening, was tolerably well attended, notwithstanding the most unpropitious, drizzly weather, and tho numerous family festivitiei attendant upon Now Year's eve : nmong those present, and expressing their honrty applause, we noticed Henr> **?- ir?l? Qurniti nml nth*Pt nf mtiairtal roimtnfinn | who com M take that pleasure in the performance of theee young genuine artistes, which our public gecerally do not, because they are of our own soil, and bear no foreign names or pretentions. Our citizens will yet see the day when they will feel, as a disgraceful evidence of their own want of true musical taste, their present backwardness in the patronage of such talent as these children possess. The little Anne played the variations on " Non pin mesta," for the piano, exquisitely j and well did she deserve tho rapturous encore she received In her song of "Watch you well try daylight" The different trios wnro admirably well executed ; Henry BuiI lock, especially, gave even more life aDd soul to his violin pieces than we have before witnessed. The violoncello solo was done full justice to by young Delos. Geo. Bullock played a violin solo from De Beriot in an admirable manner Madame Ablamowicz, who, with a kin d* ness worthy of all praise, had volunteered her services, sang in her usual superior style, and was heartily received by the audience ; her last aria she was compelled to repeat. Mr 'i'imm, who also volunteered, accompanied, as he always does,to our complete satisfaction.? The Masters Bullock and Colo give a concert in Brooklyn on Tuesday evening next, which is the last, previous lo tiieir reiuru nomo. The Hwles Bell Ringers are at Albany. The New Jersey Legislature, ami the Legislatures of renmylrania, MiaaUaippi, Louisiana, and Michigan, meet on the'id Tuesday in January The Legislature of New York meets nest Tuesday iu January, and the i Legislature of Maine and Massachusetts on the day fol| iewing. I City InldllfttiM, p?mnittion or a Tri'MFrT ?-The member! of Fill* ton F.ngine Company, No. 31, presented on New Year** { Day to Mr. Charles Daly, their late foreman, a splendid I ailver trumpet, aa a tribute of their esteem. The trum. pet was manufactured by O. Boitwick, No. 138 William I street, showing great taste and ftniah of execution. The New CeaoriKa.?The newly elected Coroner, Dr Wm. A. Walter*, of No. 60 Suffolk atreet, corner of Broome, commenced hia official labor* en New Year'* day. For the pretent he ha* secured the service* of Mr. Cockefair, the able and energetic auiatant of Dr. Rawson, whose term of|offic* ha* just expired. Death by Fmr ?The Coroner ws* called yesterday to hold an inquest upon the body of Jane Crossman, a native Delaware, aged 65 year*, who wai round lying a corpse on the floor of her room at No. 150 Third street, on Friday last, with a candle in one hand, and her body burnt in the most shocking manner. From appearances presented in the case, it was supposed that her clothes had accidentally taken Are and thereby occasioned her death. A verdict was accordingly rendered to that effect. Inflammation or tiik Li'nus.?-The Coroner held an inquest also upon the body of John Counan, a native of Ireland, aged 80 years, who has for some time past lived at No. 41 Laurens street, where he died suddenly yesterday, his death resulting from inflammation of the lungs. Verdict accordingly. A small lad in VVooster, near Spring street, by the carelessness of. an elder boy, in firing off a pistol, blew the former's fingers and hand almost off, so that amputation at the wrist was necessary. Police Intelligence. Jan. 3.? Charge of Orand Larceny?Officer Whiting, of the 17th ward, ariested, yesterday, two men by the names of George Mahan and Bilger Spuck, Germans, on a charge of stealing a small box containing near $400 in gold and silver coin, belonging to Gorwood Francis. Jus tice Timson committed both for examination. Stealing a Cloak ?A woman called Catherine Leasey alias " Cad Wilson," was arrested last night by officer McManus, of the 6th ward, on a charge of stealing a cloak from a Frenchman, while in a " crib" kept by Moll Saunders, at No. 10 Mulberry street. Locked up for examination by Justice Drinker. Petil Larceny.?A black fellow, called James Thornton, was brought 'to the police offioe, he having been caught in the act of stealing a box of raisins from the store of RodricK St Lelkman.No. 386 Front street. Locked up for trial by Justice Drinker. Stealing IVhite Lead.?A black fellew called John King wss caught yesterday], in the street, by officer Doyle, ot the 4th ward, having In his possession a keg of white lead, evidently stolen, for which an owner is wanted. Locked up for trial by Justice Drinkor. Attempt to Commit Burglary?Officer Gray, of the 3d ward, arrested, yesterday, a man called William Sterling, on a charge of attempting to commit a burglary. Locked up tor examination. Ditordtrlin on New Year's Eve.?A posse of police men of the 7th ward, arrested seven young men. who gave their names at the Station House as John Deloy, Augustus Oliver, Wm. Hsgadorn, Charles Augustus, Conrad Makin, Carl Rose, and John Bayer, who were all dressed in fantastic dresses, like Indians, their faces colored, be., for creating quite a large mob in the stroets. When brought to the Station House they were all stripped of their finery and their laces washed. Reprimanded by the Captain and allowed to go home on promise of future good behaviour. Aiiault with Intent to Kill.?Officer Gardner of the Oth ward, arrested, last night, a woman by the name of Mary Wilson, on a charge of assault and battery with intent to kill a man called Smith, by choping him down with an axe. It appears that Smith visited the accused at a place nailed the Arcade, located in Cross street, on the Five Points, by the way of wishing her and her husband a happy New Year, when after taking a few drops of the ' cratur," commonly called whiskey, a dispute arose between them respecting the propriety of raising funds to send out to old Ireland for the especial benefit of Daniel O'Connell, which terminated iu Mrs Wilson seizing the axe and chopping him across the left eye brow, knocking the eye out on his cheek. Assistance was immediately procured, and the unfortunate Mr. Smith was taken to the City Hospital, in a very dangerous

state. It was supposed that his skull was fractured.? The woman was locked up by Captain McOrath, of the 6th ward, to await the result. Anaulting an Officer.?Captain Perry, of the Fifth ward, itogether witn a posse ol policemen, arrested, last night, five Dutchmen, called Casten Meyer, Casper Morris, John Gottmillor, John Lemeks,Henry Dill, and Thos Brunce, who were all taken into the Fifth ward station, house, and locked up, for a violent assault on ofKeer John L. Austin, knocking him down, tearing his coat, be, while in the discharge of his duty in trying to quell a fight in front of a grocery ^tore in Anthony street. The captain locked them all up lor oxamination. Peace of the City.?The peace and good order of the city during New Year's, has been, we must say, remarkably well kept, through the activity and vjgi lance of his honor the Mayor, who was very busily engaged in all parts of the city, giving instructions to his effic -rs for the immediate suppress , on of any outbreak or riot that might occur. There was certainly an unusual number of Callithumpian bands out, perambulating the streets; but seeing such a strong body of police watching them on every corner, kept them within bonqds, and the whole of New Year's eve and the day passed off in a manner creditable to tho city. Not even a fire, nor an alarm of one, occurred during the whole time; which, together with the oppressive heat of the day, was, to say the least, two very remarkable facts. Jaw. 3.? Patting Spurious Honey?Officer Stiles, of the 11th ward arrested last night a man by the name of 1 John Wood,on a charge of passing a false token on Solo- , mon Strouse Locked up lor examination. Burglary ?The store occupied by Smith & Harrow, ! No. 33 Maiden Lane, was burglariously entered by some j bold burglars on New Year's Era, by forcing up the I scuttle, by which means the robbers obtained admit- | tance and stole therefrom 13 gold pencil cases marked | "M. D." and 10 gold pens marked "Bayley," with which I they made their escape. No arrest. Attempt to Commit a Rape.?Officers Doyle and Dully, ! ofthe 4th ward, arrested yesterday a man by the name 1 ofOeorge Seaman, on a charge of attempting to commit a rape on the person of Jane Gordon, while in a house of disrepute in the above ward.

The plaintiff was, with others, at that timo placed in Irons, and so kept until alter the decision ef the Court Martial, when he applied by hit counsel for a writ of habrai corpui. and was liberated by Judge Greenwood, on the ground that McKenzie had preferred no charges against him, and never brought him to trial. The case ca ne on to be tried last April, hefora Judge Rdmonds, and he nonsuited the plaintiff, on the ground that defendant acted as a jndlr.ini officer, and Kit acta were not cognizable in the ciril court*.

On the afternoon of Christmas Day, after regular evening service, Bishop Ives proceeded to lay, according to the usual form, the corner stone of the Church of the Nativitv. Avenue D . in this citv. On Hundav morninir lait he held confirmation in Christ Church, iu this city, anil administered that holy rite to twenty-four persons. At a meeting of the Surry Protestant Alliance, at the Horns tavern, Kensington, Sir Digby Mack worth, the chairman, said : He thought that in a country of light aud Bibles that Popery could not progress, yet they had seen within a few years one hundred clergymen of the church had gone over to the Roman church, and between two and three hundred gentlemen of the first families had also gone over to that church. It is worthy of remark, that since the accession of Pius IX. in June, the number of crimes committed against the ueraon as well as against property in the district of Rome has diminished in the most extraordinary ratio?the month of June offering about 600 cases, July 340, August 830, September 300, and last month's calendar falling to 112; the old admirers of the red tape system, coercion and routine, can make nothing of it. Letters from Stuttgard announce that the Holy Father has refused the bulls demanded for M. Stroebule, Lean of the Chapter of Rotherburg, capitulary raised to the Kpiscopal See of this city and of the whole kingdom of Waotenbourg. This news has spread joy among the Catholic population of that ceuntry. On Monday evening, 14th December, in Christ church, Alleatown, N. J., the Hev. Mr Ogilby, (of the diocese of Pennsylvania) read prayers, and the Bishop preached and confirmed two persons. On Thursday, 17th, the Bishop consecrated St. Peter's Church, Berkeley, at Claiksborough, to the worship and service* of Almighty God.

Cobbs consecrated the Church of St. Davids, Dallas county,Ala. The sentence of consecration was read by the Kev. Mr. Hanson, who also read the daily morning service. The sermon was preached by the Bishop. The building, we understand, is neat, and gives evidence of the zeal and liberality of the little baud of Kpiscopalians who live in its viainity.

The disease of which Senator Barrow died was a rare and remarkable one, nod I have not seen the pro|>er name assigned to it- It was a hernia of the diaphragm Hernia not unusually occurs at tne groir, the scrotum, umbilicus, kc., points at which it is easy to perceive how intestinal profusions n<ay take place The diaphragm is a strong septum, which separates the lungs and heait fiom the lower aodominal vitrei a, and is nsiii'ally pierced with openings, to allow passages for esophagus, and some blood vessels and nerves But any other openings, independently ol these, (which are well secured, ) are exceedingly raro Besides, the pressure of the bowels is downward* not upwards; and this fatal hernial protrusion could only hava been effected in a recumbent position, and under the influence of some distention of the bowels. The other intestinal strangula tiona may be, and are constantly relieved by timely operations, hut aa the pbysiciins stated on the post moitem examination, no relief or remedy could ever reach such an unusual and misplaced disease as this. Senstor Harrow was a robust, vigorous and healthy man, about 66 yean of age, and but for this unfortunate catastrophe, would, in all probability, have added many years useful life. __________ New Mii-i- Privilioe on Ciiioopkk R'v*r AH U- ?? r'?U~e...ll.. ....,1 PkinnnMM Flllls WOTC mc mi 119 ai uauuiviuo auu v/iuuu|<v? lopped and the hand* let out to play, on Saturday, in conseqnence of the operation of filling the pond created by (he new dam at Indian Orchard.

A few year* of prosperity will doubtless witness ths rise of a village of 8,000 to 10,000 inhabitants, at that point, where until within a year or two, the solitude has been almost unbroken since the red man moved along the banks or darted hia canoe across the waters ?

The Mining speculations on Lake Superior have been pretty fully discussed, and enquiry seems te have at least elicited the fact, that the existing companies have not (rot all the good thing* ; and that, therefore, supposing the government ready to make the nme term*, those who desire to embark in the business may do so with a* fair a prospect as that of the earlier adventurers. This is the statement of the Pilot, and, on this subject, we believe that paper a very competent authority : it has asserted that ample space for all who desire to exert their enterprize in mining, is still supposed to remain, as well on the shores of Lake Huron as on those of Lake Superior. If this be so, the claim of shareholders to obtain premiums on their stock, can arise only from the superior ad vantages of an established company, over younger concern*. H Whether the aiiurance of remaining and unapproprist H ed treafure* ha* been the stimulating came we do not H know ; but the number of incipient companies which have heard of, all proposing to make the fortune of thei^H proprietors, is what Dominie Sampson would caflH prodigious ! However, there is no doubt that many of^T the promoters of these concerns are highly respectable; Tj and desire to go on with the business in a straightfor- J ward manner. m It will be seen by another column, that Har Majesty's Engineer office here, has had a verj narrow escape from^l The new market, which has cost about ?00,000, about to be opened for business.
