Irirtn Ori'Hii Slum IfRVlxiiilnn Tht Luetic h of | the Steamship Washington. The stupendous and magndlcent Washington was launched yesterday morning, at the appointed hour, from the yard of Messrs. Westervelt and McKay The concourse of people, of both sexes, assembled on the occasion, and the enthusiasm manifested, were greater than we ever remember to have witnessed on any similar event. There could not have been less than fifteen thousand pciatMM |ii refill. The excitement which her first movement created, is perfectly indescribable. Salutes were lired from various points, both in Williainsburgh and in the city, and were answered by the Spanish steamer Leon, which vessel kept up a con- ! ti 11 mil booming from the moment the VV. touched her legitimate element, until she was moored at j the wharf. To all this were added the merry peals ' of the bells of a large number of steamboats lying in the vicinity, and the vociferous and deafening cheers of the immense multitude. The scene was brilliant in the extreme; nothing could surpass the enthusiasm of the crowd, winch fact i? a>i undeniable proof of the interest this important affair has created, while it evinces a just appreciation of an enterprise which is to establish beyond cavil the reputation of the American mechanics as the best and most skilful in the world; and which is destined to work a wonderful revolution in all branches of commerce. The Washington is now the largest merchant steamer alloat in the world, and with justice we may add, the most complete and beautiful ever constructed In the words of Commodore Perry, who was present at the launch, she is a credit to the country she hails from; and will, we trust, for years to come, piove herself to he 11s profitable as she is beautiful and creditable to the originators of the noble enterprise. This steamer was constructed under the super vision of Mr. Mills and the builders, Messrs. Wegtervelt and McKay, as the pioneer of the line designed to run between lliis city and liremen, touching at Cowes. Her frame is of white oak, carefully selected, and put together with a view to strength us well as neatness. The lines of her model are slightly rounded, sharp bow, ! clean 'run, and a gentle swell in the sides; the whole form is exceedingly neat and harmonious. The planking on the outside is -I inches on the ] bottom, running up to six on the sides; the ciel- j ing on the inside is of yellow pine, 7 to 8 inches ? thick. She has seven kelsons, four of which are J placed a midships, for the support of the engines, ( and are 36 inches by 4 feet 3 inches high, fasten- J e.d through the lloor with screw bolts. Every; , piece of timber used is in its natural state, 1 and fastened with powerful copper and , iron bolts. The length of keel 220 feet, length ol upper deck, 240 feet, extreme length over all 260 feet; breadth of beam moulded, 30 feet; depth of Iml/I a I 11... Jit font- Custom-hull*!! measurement, 1750 tons; carpenters' measurement, 2350 tons; she bus four decks, the upper one will be Hush lore and alt. | j She is to be fitted with two engines, each of 1000 horse power. They are now ready to go in, i and are said to be equal, if not superior to anything of the kind now in use. They were built by < Mess. Ward, Stillman & Co , at the Novelty j Works, who have pledged themselves to produce engines that cannot be surpassed. The capacity ' of the cylinders is 72 inch, with ten feet stroke, and weigh 20,000 pounds; each of the bed ( plates, which are of cast iron, weighs 40,000 ! pounds; site has aifentire wrought iron frame; four cranks and shafts, each weighing 8000 pounds: the shafts are 20 inches in diameter, and 18 inches in the journals. The boilers have lfi fet t , front, 3d feet long, and are braced in every square foot. The whole will be 10 feet in diameter. The cabins, which are designed to accomodate 1 200 first, and about 75 second class passengers, will , be lilted with large state rooms, each containing i j two berths, placed or* the inner bulk-head They will be well ventilated and lighted by side-windows, and with the usual dead-lights on deck. | The style of the finish of the main cabin, as well [ as the embellishments of the whole interior, will ! be in a style of superior elegance and taste?the decorations and finish being in imitation of white enamel and gold. There will be nothing ; guady or superfluous in the arrangements of tho cabin; it will be simple and chaste, but will possess every requisite for the comfort and convenience of passengers ; every new im- j proremerit which may add to'tli* convenience : of passengers, will be applied, without regard to price. The projectors are determined that the Washington shall rank as " The Steamer" in point ol speed, comfort, and beauty. So far, their j expectations are fully realized, and their great aim accomplished. The hnll is painted black, with imitation port holes. She is ornamented by the full length figure of the great and good man whose name she bears. She will carry three masts, and will spread sufficient canvass to carry her through | every emergency. W..r V.I firwl all WliritB of tllC I ship, including coal, kc., will ho 600 tons. .She will bo commanded by Captain llewitt, known as the late able and gentle nanly commander of the Havre packet ship Utica, and will leave on her first voyage about the first of The New Orleans Line of Steamers.?The first of a line of steamships, to be owned by C. II. Marshall, Esq., and others, intended o bo run be tween this city and New Orleans, is now in progress of building by Mr. Win. H. Webb, at his yard, foot of Sixth stteet, East river. She is to be called the United Stater, and the following dimensions will givo some idea of her immense capacity, viz :? Length of keel 236 feet " " deck 'JU " Kxtreme length '-! ># " Breadth of beam 19 " Depth of hold,including the apar deck. 30 " Measurement about 1850 tons. She is to be built principally ol live oak, locust, and cedar; and her cabin accommodations, which are to be upon a plan combining every thing in the shape of comfort anil convenience, will bo sufficient for about 200 passengers. The pngines, machinery, fce., are now building by Messrs. Sccor * Co. She will have two marine engines and four boilers; the cylinders will be 7!) inches, with !> feet stroke. Wu shall furnish a moro particular description of this splendid vessel hereafter. In the meantime, we venture to say that, in point of strength, safety and durability, she will he unsurpassed by anything in the shape or form of a steamship which has ever floated. .She i? intended to bo 'aunched on or before the l()th of July, and to be in readiness for Jier first voyage to New Orleans by the 20th of' October next. Thus we go. Our steam marine will soon surpass that of any other natio TkeEastern Mail.?This mail, duo here yes ter."hiy morning, did not arrive till half past & o'clock last night. The delay, we understand, was on account o' the weather being thick and stormy. A strong N.W.wind blowing when tho cars arrived at Stenington, Capt. Thayer did not deem it pru. dent to come out, but waited till half past six o'clock this motmng. Wo commend him tor las prudence. ! The Governor leaves this morning at 7 o'clock Tm^itonmeton, with the llibermu's mails ; the over the bong Island ra.lioad will leave at fkiiM h^^^Muxiire R to Tub Bo?tov Post ('r kick.?Some of the papers in tins city complained ot the delay at the Boston Post Office inforwnrding the llibernia's letters. Kr. Holknbeck, the mail agent, who was there when the mad at rived, and who assisted in assorting and getting it in readiness for the first Southern mail, assures us that it was only accomplished by extraordinary exertions on the part of the clerks in that etfiee. There were upwards of one hundred thousand letters for the United States and the Canadas; being the lurgest mail, except that brought out by the Acadia in IBM), when she put back in distress, and came out with two monthly mails. It must be borne in mind that there are other important mails to he despatched, and other duties to be attended, which prevents placing the whole force of that ollice upon the New York and Southern man m:mer, 10 irie exclusion ui every uiuig else. Every thing-was done that energy, skill, and perseverance could accomplish?all, excepting a lew ol'the miscellaneous, and not business letters, were separated, and made up'for this and the Southern cities, so that no delay was occasioned on arriving here, but forwarded by the Southern mail the same morning. Havana News.?We have files of the Diario de la Marina to the 17th inst., and ?f El Fanul and El Redactor to a late date. Thero is no news in them of importance. There had been no late arrivals from Vera Cruz or Yucatan. The royal steamer Medway sailed lor Vera Cruz on the 10th. The Dee sailed cn the 11th for Southampton. Thcitlrlcul*. Park Theater.?Last evening was the last of Mr. Collins's appearances at tho Park Theatre, far many months to come; and it would appear from his selection of characters, and the munner in which he performed them, that he was determined to make the Now Vork public keep him innatBbruM until they should see him ngain The first character ho appeared in was Capt. O'Neill, in the comedy of " King O'Neill," which, as every body knows, is one of the most trying Irish characters that an actor can take ; an I to succeed in which, is tho best recommendation that an Irish comedian can have. Mr. Collins did eminently succeed in it, and acted every part of the character, from the riso to tho fall Of the curtain, in tho most graphic and natural manner. The second charueler he appeared in was Felix O'Urien, in the new comedy of tho "Wife Hunters," which, as we ltave before informed our readers, was expressly written for Mr. Collins In this piece the favorite song, "Widow Machree," occurs, and Mr Collins did ample justice to it with his full and sonorous voice. The an plnuse was so tremendous and irreiistiblo, that he could not escape repeating it three times, singing it each time to a new version, that threw the audience into raptures. The third character was Morgan Rattler, in "How to pay die Rent " This character, Mr. Collins has peculiarly nado his own; and the best praise we can give his perlonation of it last night, is tn state the fact that every inlividuul ol'the audience waited to see its conclusion, al:hough the house was full, and bestowed unlimited praise an it.. Mr Collins leaves h?io immediately, and will appear to-morrow night at Phila lalphia, where we have no aoubt ho will bo onthusiastiosdly received. To morrow evening the celebrated Italian dancers will appear at the Park for the first tiir.? in this city. Bowcar.?We had a repetition last evening of " Satan and the Devil in Paris," in which Miss Mary Taylor performed the * * * * * with her usual tulent. She was enthusiastically applauded all through the piece, a id was ably supported by Clarke. Chapman, and Hnda* way, also by Miss Julia Drake, Mrs Sergeant, and Mrs. Booth, in the chief ch racters. " \ Glorious Majority" followed, and the " Yew Tree Ruins" wound up the performance. To morrow evening will bo presented for the first time at this theatre, the grand opera r>f " Cinderella," by a most powerful and' talented cast, consisting of Miss Mary Taylor as Cinderella, and Mr. Hunt as the Prince. Vache, Clark, Chapnmn, Hadaway, Miss Julia Drake, Mrs. Booth and Mrs Sergeant, together with the entire stock company, will all appear " Like Master, like Man." will also he performed. The splendid o;>ero of " Cinderella" will he supported by a full and ctlicient chorus. The house to-aiorrow evening will bo a poiiect jam. See the bills of the day. Yankee Hill is in Worcester, Mass., where ho will let out some of his fun upon the people. Ilnslcal, Italian OfKii*.?To-morrow evening "Lucia di Lammermoor" Is to bo presented for, positively, the last 'imo; and if there are any lovers of music in our city who have not listened to its many sweet airs ns given by Bsriii, Beneventano, and Bcnedetli, they will do well to avail themselves of the opportunity afforded to morrow. Its frequent repetition hm rendered evory part perfect and unexceptionable. "Nina, pa/./.a per Amora," an opera never yet brought out in this country, will begin next, when Pico's many admirers may have a chance of healing her as prima donnu, a position she always so creditably holds After her, Uarili will appear again City Intelligence. Dkatm ok Monrok Edwards.?Col. Monroe Edwaitis, whose crimes have given him a reputation far more wide than enviable, died at the Sing Sing State prison at nn early hour on Yriday morning. He has been declining in health ever since his incarceration, but for the last two years he has failed so perceptibly as to cause general remark among those acquainted at the prison. His disease, it is said, was consumption, brought on by the prnctico of a habit prevalent amongst prisonors in all the Stato prisons. He was warned ol his danger a long time since ; he acknowledged his fault, but persisted in the practice until he was past the reach of medical aid. Kor a number of weeks past he has been delirius at times; when, however, he conversed, he was eloquent upon the history of his past life, and his plans for the future ; he would not contemplate the fact that ho was about to die. The chaplain ol tho institution conversed with the sick man when 011 his death bed : Ed wards paid no regard to w bat he said, appearing to be in a state of listless iasunity until the chaplain mentioned the crimos of which he had hewn convicted, when, for a moment he appeared to come partially to his senses, and p'otested that he did not commit the forgeries. On Thursday night, lie hospital was lockod up as usual, and the patients left in cliaige of attendants. Towards morning it heeanie evident that the sick man could not long survive ; indeed, he appears to have suffered death while yet alive, that is he imagined that he hud ceased to exist, and appealed to his attendants to know if it was not so. They told him no, he was nut dead ; but thisdie refused to believe, and began to bite his linger, which he gaid was without feeling, und hence, he argued he must bo dead; and again appealed to the attoudants, asking them to feel his flesh, and tell liim if he wore not really dead. Tun physician to the prison wus not with him when he died, nor indeed at any time during the night. The nurses describe the death sceno us being horrible to witness. The dying prisoner protesting that he was dead, yet filled with the dread of the fearful transition, and all tho while endeavoring to bite hiN Angers or tear his flesh, not so intn h with the intent to injure his person, as to convince himself that the appalling ohange from life t"<:eath had tak?.i place, sad he had it not to suffer again; and so ho <llt.ll.

I)r Cox, who was listened to with profound attention ||i Hiinouiiscd his intention at the outset to mako some mis ceilaneous remiiks.

The festival was altogether a comfortable affair, and was attended by a highly respectable audience, composed of ; judicial and other officers, of '.ho city professional men, I . and merchants. Emigrants' Homs ? Much sympathy has been ex- ' Cres-ed in favor of the destitute emigrants arriving here, 1 ut gioat difficulty as to the means to the means of relieving them has been experienced by the public, as well as the charitable institutions of this city; and as the number will increaso by arrivals, in all probability, during this winter an ) the present year, a gentleman, Mr. Wymbs.jwlio has given great personal attention to the charitablo institutions of Europe, has matured a plan for establishing an institution which will comhino the advantages of the institution established by Count U'Orsay, in London; where the peoroxile and wandare.r may have lodgings lor one or more nights, and likewise a warm, comfortable restorative soup, furnished gratis, with scarcely uny expense to the public; simply by contributions oi meat, vegetables, and cereal food, lor which the contributors would receive tickets, which they could give to the poor, as well as to the emigrants, without forcing them to the humiliation of mendicity; and at tne same time, the recipients would lie employed in collecting tho contributions, being duly authorised to do < in 1,1' It,n dircrtnru of tin- institution but none nth rs: they receiving tickets entitling them to tho distributions of tho association as a compeiisutiou Tho clergy of h11 sects, and many of tho directors of tho charitable institutions, us well us ladies and gentlemen diitinguished for their zeal in favor of all our public chu- j rities, approve of the oiganization proposed for this charitable enterprise, and will give it their warm support, I and oi which in a few days, we will givo the matured plan.

Is not this a palpable breach of law ordinance 7 Each vehicle has very conspicuously painted inside, " scats for twelve pasrengers, no smoking allowed." As to smoking, it very seldom takes place, sare by such distingut characters as "The man wot smokes in the omnibus," but the violations of the law in relation to carrying an over ullowauco of passengers, are but too frequent. Something must bo done on this subject; and those big children who pay half price, should bo allowed a regular seat, and not inconvenience those who pay lull faie. We hope to sec the time when the prices will be regulated more lairly, aud will be reduced to threa cents. This reform is much needed. The Gates at Tom mi-is SqUAH?.?Considerable labor and expense has been, within the past year, devoted to the lonco around Tompkins square; but the guter are so lightly weighted that they are constantly ajar or half open, offering an invitation to vagrant cuttle, swine and dogs to walk in and enjoy themselves, in cropping, rooting or scratching tho grass plots. Will the proper authorities please to add a few more pounds of iron to those weights, and thus save the public ground? Fire.-The alarm of fire, yesterday morning, about 11 o'clock, was caused in consequence of the Williaiiisburgh Ferry boats taking firo at tnis side of the river. The fire was speedily put out. Damage trilling The wind was blowing nearly a gale at the time, and waa cold and piercing. Acciheixt.?A man named John Bricn, yesterday, in emit avoring to escape from a falling toof of an old building,, in mh Avenue, met with an accident, and had his arm broken. He wus taken to the City Hospital. Death Caused bv Fire.?An interesting daughter belonging to Patrick I.awior, residing in Thirty Secoud street, near Eighth Avenue, was burned dreadfully on I Vri.inv mnrninir?her clothes buvinir taken fire during ! the momentary absence of her mother. She died last evening about 4 o'clock. Parent* should be careful about their children when Are is in question. The little sufferer was only lour years .of age. Sentkwck.?Kugeno Noiris, convicted of larceny in tho United States District Court, was sentenced by Judge Botts, to 30 days impri'oumont in the Kings county jail, and to pay a tine of f 100. News Bors.?Who o.' all business man in this city, is mora interested in the "newt by steamer," than our newsboys! By whom is the state of the markets mere carefully wntchodf Tell the crowd ef noisy urchin*, who await with undisguised impatience for the Extra Herald, that cotton has advanced u quarter of a cent, ami the whole band will throw up their caps, and shout with unfeigned joy They know, the quick sighted lit tie rascals, that it will he so many more pennies in their pockets, and accordingly they order an extra hundred, to supply the prospective demand; and at they glance over tho items of news, they nee a rise in cotton, tobacco, er corn, and in tho next paragraph, perhaps, rend ol the distress in Ireland; and while they cry their extras in glee at the news ol the markets, they are choking with grief at the reAection of the starvation existing in their own or their parents' island home?(tho newsboys are many of them of Irish birth.) No more enterniising operators exist than the newsboys. The other day, on the occasion of the arrival of a steamer, a little fellow wna selling his oxtras with a tremendous rush, when a gen. tie man observed that ho was very hoarse and remarked, " You have a cold ray boy." "Vy, yis, that's 'causu 1 ' slcp out last night," replied the boy. " blept out ! ?why have you not a home J" "Oh, yes ; but there was a 'rival, and we waited up for the news, and I slep out , so s to get it early " They are never weatiior bound, I these enterprising urchins, they are always out, early aad i late.

They ate a happy company, and , dispense much happiness, by tho uid which they are able to render parents or friends who need their , assistance.

They are intelligent; a dull newsboy is an n oddity not often to be met with. They itro ?itbor clover ] when they commence, become so in a short time, or hic >, driven from the field by their companions of mote promi j ting talents; so that by the time a newsboy is (airly initnitud into the mysteries of hit calling, his eye teeth are , fully developed.

J Within the past week there has been a complete revo lution in our local monetary affairs. The great influx of 1 specie,has had a favorable influence upon prices of every V description of stock, and uu advance of several per ct. has 1 ulready been realized The greatest activity pievttils in I all our markets, and our great staples ate advancing with 1 the greatest rapidity. Wo have hardly enough vessels in I port to meet the demand from shippers, and freights AI havo reached higher rates than ship owners have cxperi. enced for many years. Our packet ships are coining Money; and notwithstanding the immense tonnage of those engaged in the Livet pool trade, they are tilled to their utmost capacity. While prices for cotton continue to advance so rapidly, and speculation runs so high in this market, the shipments will he rather limited, hut breadstuff* are pushing forwatd iu immense quantities. Wc are on the high road to an unprecedented prosperity. At no period in the commercial history of this country has there been such a healthy basis for the speculative movements going on in our great staples. H It is perfectly legitimate, and very large fortunes must H ho realized. It is totally dilfurent from thoBe speculations I which have heretofore exploded so suddenly, and spread ruin over the country. Tho increased value given to our products, is tho result of a bona fide demand for con- sumption, and is, therefore, based upon proper principles V must be sustained. f I We annex tho current quotations in this market for fl foreign and domestic exchange, for uncurrent money, H and for specie : - H KonKinn Kiciufiiii:!
