I NEW YORK I \'t-w York, Tint <!?)', M??rh 11, 184?. I News from ICuvope. I We understand lint tilt? speculators have nrI gaged a small steamer to cruize in the bay and I off Sandy Hock, for the packet ships Liverpool, Siddons, and Yorkshire. I The Contemplated Attack on Vera Crux? I Our Fleet tu the Otsir. We present to our readers, this morning, an engraved map or diagram ot the city of Vera Cruz with a key explanatory of all the principal buildings, squares, kc., kc , and the view of the famous castle of San Juan d'Ulloa, ibr the purpose of affording our patrons every intelligence respecting these two places, both of which will probably soon be in the possession of our forces. These engravings are taken from drawings made on the spot, and can be relied upon for accuracy. They will be of great use to our readers hereafter, whea we shall receive accounts of the [ storming of those places, particularly as there is every probability of it being a hot and bloody affair; that is to say, if the Mexicans have not evacuated the oity. We have, on a former occasion, given a summary of the vessels comprising the squadron in the Gulf, which were ordered there for the purpose of maintaining a blockade ol the Mexican ports on that side. No statement has yet appeared of the vessels destined to take part in the reduction ot San Juan de tllloa. We have taken some pniis to collect them, and give the following ubte, which we think comprisos all, or nearly all, of them L'hitkd Stats* Natal Kohckb ikthe OvLr or Mexico. Line 3IU?

Nones.. 0 " Total number oi guns 334 The whole number of guns, it appears, is three hundred and twenty-four, which we think are amply sufficient, in the hands of enr gallant officers and tars, to reduce the castle in a short time. The bomb ketches will probably be as efficient as any of the large vessels in the attack. Their guns can throw shells half a mile further than any of those in San Juan. It is d ifficult to mention the particular day when this attack will be made, il one be necessary; but we are confident, as we have before stated, that the 20th of March, or as soon thereafter as possible, is set down by the government Commodore Perry has proceeded to the Gull, in the Mississippi, and he will probably reach the squadron in a few days. * At the last accounts from Tampico, Gen. Scott was making every exertion to have all his forces embarked for the island of Lobos, and the proba tufty is, that both he and Commodore Ferry will arrive there about the same time. There has lately been a great deal said by the whig press throughout the country, in censure ol the administration, for appointing none but democrats in command of our forces. The charge is probably in a great measure unfounded. At any rate,we now see Com. Perry,who is said to be a whig, appointed to the command of our naval forces in the Gulf, altheugh there wo twenty or twenty-five senior captains to him, many of whom are democrats in every sense of the term ; and it is a singular fact in politics, that with a democratic administration, the three principal commanders in the war with Mexico are whigs. It is said that Cans. Conner returns home. Many ask why. It does not appear that he has neglected his duty in any way. It is stated thai Aivarado has, thus far, escaped seizure en account of the scarcity of small vessels during the summer; certainly not on account of a want of skill on the part of Com. Conner. These small vessels, which had been asked for, did not arrive until winter was setting in; and when the vesseU eventually came, there was no coal for their use; and when the coal came in abundance, the principal steamers were wanting repairs, and were, therefore, ?ent north. In winter it wa? found necessary for large steamers to fow small one-:, tnd the large ones could not get over bars. But r.ow that the additional vessels, steamers, ii.mill gun vessels, and all, are ready,to join in Vat'le, with General Scott at Vera Cruz, against the castle, tho old Commodore, returns home. Many isk why. Well, whyl V/o reco nmend our readers to preserve this day's Uvaid. for reference. It will beol great use to them in understanding clearly the mode o! attack on Vera Cruz and San Juan do Ulloa?the difficulties that may be experienced in reducing them, and the particular localities where those diflicultios may have occurred. Tint Kxukf for Ikki.and and Scotland.?He turns are still coming in from all parts of the coun try, showing that the spirit of benevolence is ui general as the information, (thanks to the Ameri can newspaper press,) respecting the distress o our transatlantic brethren. Mot only have tin large cities, both on the seaboard and in the into rior, contributed largely, but small towns send it their donations in amounts that make us proud o our countrymen. Who will now ?ay that the " almighty dollar" ii so lightly grasped that pity may not claim her owi r hare of itT The tale of distress needs only to b? veoited, and forth comes the prudently husbanded tore, and the bread is committed to the waters ? Not less than 850U,000 have already been contributed ihrough various channels; and it is taking bat a small liberty with probabilities to say that be fore a year is pas', ? 1,000,000 will have gone out of th s country in the torm i f breadstuffs and cash, to say nothing of the numerous paroels o: clo Ding which accompany the food. Let not,then the frugality of Americans be herealter charac tensed as excessive, and, as has been said, mean No, it is the practice of economy that has ena bled them, at this time, to draw from small sav ings, or large, as the case I may be, the price o that food which shall give many a mother the do i ghtfnl task of feeding and nourishing her poo starvelings, who otherwise must have died bi i oches, of staVvation, before her very eyes. Ten thousand families supported entirely b] our munificence 1 Is not this an agreeable pio tare 1 And v.'ho, lhat is prospered in business? who that has health and plenty to be thankful for will refuse to bis own soul the luxury of giv ng i dollar towards this noble chanty 1 Who will lx wit i?g hereafter, when the story shall be told o t he great benevolent movement of IK 17, to cor less that,although prosperous bimvdf, he gav .at id much as a dollar to the cause of humanity that he aonthbufrd not so much aa a measure < earn, which perchance might have aayed a fello* bet Ig'e life"? T ie contributions to which allusion is made, a "in Amerion," are raited in tho United Sta'es. The (nuadas, Nova Scotia, and New Brunsw ck are also awake to the cause cl* the suffering, and have contributed some very handsome little turns. Tint Dirty Street Party?The Comtmi Chartkr Election?We are informed that the democratic office holders and office seekers, are busy making their preliminary arrangements for the ensuing charter election, which will take place in about one month from this time. They are first in the field, as usual, and will have had all the nominations cut and dried, and printed on their election tickets, before the whigs will have awakened from their ! slumbers We are credibly informed that the wire pullers of the locofoco, alias " dirty street" party, have held several caucuses lately, in the porter houses, and police station offices around town; ana nave, in me itinuesi manner possible, relieved the "oters of this city of the trouble of selecting candidates for Mayor and both boards of the Common Council. They have, with the aid of the army of " stars," their relatives and friends, selected men for nomination who, in their opinion, possess all the necessary qualifications to fill the offices which they have marked out for I them. This is certainly a piece of disinterested kind* ness that we would not expect from modem politicians. However, it is according to the " usages of the party," and must therefore be right. We question the propriety, though, of policemen, or other underlings of the party in power, taking into their own hands the management of these matters, and dictating to the people whom they shall vote for. The fact is, that our elections have J always been too much under the influence of certain gentlemen, who, because they are behind the scenes, and versed well in the mysteries of deinagoguism, imagine that those whom they nominate, ure the only persons deserving the suffrages of their fellow citizens. Public officers : should be chosen by the people, and not by a few interested and office seeking politicians, i But what in the name of wonder are the whigs , aboutl; Surely the members of that party will not allow this " dirty street" party to have their own way in these matters, and walk over the course, i without making an attempt at least to obstruct . them. Are they willing to permit this party, who | decline from some cause, to them best known, to j put our public ferry slips at auction, and rent twvis* ?w IUO UIUUOI ujciciiy lUUICUiiJ^ our city receipts some thousands of dollars?to again control our ci'y government,without trying at least to stop them in their careerl They must stir themselves. It will never do to allow the "dirtystreet" party, with its army of police cilioers and , unemployed Btreet sweepers, to have every thing I as it pleases. Besides, there would be no fun in i . it. We must have some fun at the next election, j ' or it will not he a regular election at all. The wh'gs and the city reformers must bestir j ! themselves ; they must muster their forces?and 1 make their nominations. Let them select good : men, and by all means?let us have a fair fight. The Augusta, Georgia, Bridge Case.?This ; case, we have seen noticed by several papers as being before the Supreme Court. We learn that the death of one of the complainants, John W. Yarborough, has caused the case to be laid over, 1 and the Court has permited a proper representa! tive of the deceased voluntarily to come in and . become a party within the first ten days of the j ; ensuing term of Court. This case seems to have been pending for nearly a quarter oi a century, and over hall a million of dollars are involved in the suit. This makes it a matter of importance : to those interested, and to the public in general, for the public are interested in all banks, and six or seven hundred thousand dollars is a sum of some magnitude, even for a corporate body. We give the proceedings in the matter in another column. News from thr North and East ?We are indebted to Mr. Cloys, ol the New Haven route, for Boston papers of yesterday morning; also to Mr. Bacom, of the steamer Worcester, lor the latest New london papers ; also, to Messrs. Livingston It Wells, for the Albany papers of yesterday morning. Navigation on the Hudson.?We learn that the ice is becoming rotten at Albany, but there is no immediate prospect of a breaking up. We will see what a few more mild days will do. Steamship Cambria, Judkins, uom Boston, arri ved at Halifax on the 2d inst, in 84 hours' passage, and left the next morning for Liverpool. Theatricals. Pass Thkatrs.?The Viennoise children appeared again last evening in some of their much admired pat' and will perform again this evening. Only two njghte more ot their engagement are unexpired. AH who have net yetieen them must not omit the opportunity of doing to. We cannot isy anything in their praise. They are | to well known a* to make praiae or coasmendation auper* I Uu>us.

The grand attractions nightly presented here, fully auatain the high reputation of old Bowery. The bills for this evening will be found highly attractive. f OaranwicN Theatre.? The benefit of Mr. W. Cor byn waa well attended at this popular theatre last evening, and the "Honey Moon" waa performed by a highly taleotoil cast. Mrs Ada Stetson displayed considerable talent in her personation of the character of Juliana. She was ahly supported by a powerful cast?E. N Conner. Chapman, Fredericks, and the entire company, performed with extreme ability. We would remind tue Mends of Mr. Arnold, that his benefit is fixed for this evening ? The bill will be found highly attractive. 1 Bowxav Ctacus.?This popular place of evening recreation still continues to draw vast crowds nightly, to * witness the extraordinary feats (performed by the com * pany. The house last night was a perfect "jam.'* The celebrated McFarland* draw forth the moat enthusiastic 1 plaudits. Mr. Madigan and his infantile pupil, have been r received with tie most unbounded applause. The bill or this evening, presents an array of the combined talents ol the entire company. Mnnleal. Italiaa OrxaA ?We had the pleasure, last evening, | of again witnessing the performance of "I Lombardi." The music, like that of all good operas, Improves by acquaintance.

The Allen Waltz, by the Cornet Club, followed, and the degrees were then conferred on the graduates who were called up in olasaes of six or eight each, to re- ' ceivo them. This was the most interesting portion of the exercises. The spectators, particularly tha ladies, eagerly scanned the countenances of the young gentlemen as they walked towards the Chancellor to receive the well merited reward of their assiduity and zeal, and many of them, we perceived, felt a lively interest in the proceedings before them. Professor Bskioku then delivered the annual address, of which we give a sketch as follows After having congratuated the graduates and making a I few p eliminary lemarka, he continued?Yon are now authorised to go forth on your respective missions ; and the responsibilities which will necessarily devolve on you in the discbarge of professional duty, will be of a nature at once sacred and momeutvu* Henceforth, your i province will be to heal the sick and give comfort to the i sfflicted?your mission will indeed, be one of charity and , benevolence?to assuage t uman suffering, conquer disease, end restore man to health, are its cardinal objeeta. ' The profession which you have embracedraud of which I you are now in part the constituted guardians, is one of j peace end kindness-it* pride i* not in the.uesolationi of i ? nnr in tha blood v deeds <>! senseless ambitien : and ! vet the bottle-fl?l<l itself it filled with the records { of its glory and it* triumphs?not triumph! over a fallen foe, but triumph* over diaeate and death ? Among you, who have tbit night been constituted members of the profettien, there it not, I am sure, one who does not long lor honorable distinction, and look forward with earnest solicitude to the attainment of a name which shall give him some rank among his fellow-men. Tbit love ol fame is a distinguishing characteristic of man, and whau controlled by proper influences,is laudable ambition. It excite* to effort?it urges on the slothful?it encourages and animates with bouysnt hope the depressed and friendless. If you have net ambition, your success will, indeed, be limited. Be content with a mere subsistence, and you add but little to that science, the interests and dignity of which you have pledged yourselves to sustain. Rather let yonr aspirations be nigh?reaolve to leave behind you a nam* which shall be one of honor. Beak for a lofty position among I your compears, and remember that reputation, which | shall endure, it to bo achieved only by years of patient i and persevering toil. Whilst others unite in the pita; tures of the festive scene, and enter largely into the en| J iy menu of social life, the chamber of sickness, with its sorrows and its cares, is the abode of tho physician. I There it is that he it enabled to exhibit the triumphs of his skill, and the fulness of his knowledge. When I challenged by disease to the combat, if he be not prepare* for the issue, his resposibility will prove most fearful. Uumau life is not ap worthless that h* who ia entrusted with its preservation should not appreciate fully the tacredueat of the chaige ! confided to hia keeping. Young (JeutWasen, you are now, by law and profession, the guardians ef the health and lives of your fallow meu?to you hat been dele| gaud the privilege ol administering to the tick and < infirm?and on your knowledge mutt depend the safety of those commi ted to your charge. Although you have i received your diploma, and had awarded to you all the houori which your alia mater can confer, yet these ; are insignificant, compared with what you have yet to ' accomplish The parchment which you hold in your hands it but a contract?it remains for you, by your acts, 1 to proclaim to the world that you have preserved that : contract inviolate; that it* object! have been ?acredly ! carried out?it* end* rigidly fulfilled. But to do this, your lives must be consecrated to your profession?you ; must continue faithful and diligent students?and lot me j admonish you against the delusion that, with the posi session of the degree, you have attained all that is ralua ; ble in medicine. You now stand merely on the threshold, and if you wish to reach the height of the temple, you must labor with unceasing devotion; I your leisure hours, instead of being consumed in the | revel feast, must be given to profound and earnest con! temptation? and to keep pace with the rapid progress of medical science, you will be required to briog into active operation ell the energies of your miod. Kepu; tation is a thing of slow growth?be not, therefore, . disheartened it you find years of anxious toil, necessary to give you position among your fellow practitioners. Patience and untiring industry will accomplish all that you may desire, snd your highest aspirations will be gratified if you faithfully and xeaiously ' puisne the legitimate objects of your profession. It fi my duty to inform you?snd I do so in kindness and ia friendship?I do M that you maybe early put on your guard as to what you will have to encounter in seeking I professional advsccement?that your pith will not ai i waya be one of peace and good will ; it will not be your : good fortune always to he surrounded by generous and kindred spiiit* ; you will cccanonally meet in <hs? flel-l | of competition, men whose whole basis of action end | thought is sell interest?men who will atiemp* to destroy ; by base insixuitions, and secret assaults on character, those whom ta?y canuot eijcsl in the race for honor and distinction. I an humbled et the declaration ; but it seems, indeed, to be a conceded fact, that among the members of themedioal profession, tbere is a want of liberality,a want of that generoua fostering influenoe when : the young man so mucn needs to encourage and support him amid the trials and embarrassment* of professional life. Io lieu of kindness end congratulation, how often does it, happen that tha young phyaician, at the very moment he hts succeeded by perse Ar?nf>A An/1 inHnatrtr in aatuhlishin* ksmaeilf in public eonfi lence, discovers that ha i* tha ohj?ct ol bitter detraction by tha vary men who, if thev loved and bonoiad their calling, should bare been tha Ant to aault in hia success !

If you have knowledge, and if with thia you conjoin industry and a firm determination to rely on vour own personal exertions, you will have no neod of au h influence* to promote you in public fteor. Your own talents, with propsr direction, will proTo the safest feundation on which to erect the euperatructure ol you- fame and fartune. This lead* ma to the consideration, for a moment, of another topic, in which you will necessarily feel a deep anl abiding interest? au iutcreit in which your patienta will largely participate I allude to medical consultations When you ihall have entered extensively into practice, occasion* will often erite rendering it necesiary to seek the aid and counsel of some fellow practitioner. This necesesity for a consultation may am* from one of two causes-either liom a loss of confidence in your skill or th* extreme illness of your patient. In either instance, it will be your duty prompt ly to roipond to tha wiihei of those who have confided not only in your science a? physicians, but also in your houur us men This desire, tharefora, for additional counsel should be met by you with spirit of generous fraukness. Ths man of true knowledge?he who feels that be has discharged his obligations to his patient conscientiously, will rather be pleased than mortified, in laying before his associate in practice, the details of his treatment; he will render witn confidence a full history of tha case, and be prepared, too, te defend his views on the broad principles of science. Who the individual may be selected to meet him in consultation, so long as he is a respectable practitioner, will bo to him a matter of isdifforence; and ubove all. he will not, irom motives of sordid fear, or from any feelings equally unworthy, nominate his medical friend, and insist with importunate and unbecoming zeal, that he alone shall decide as to the propriety or what has been done for for the suffering patient. Take, for example, some half dozen physicians pledged, if not by a written dooument, at least by a tacit understanding, which admits of no exception, that thay will always call each other in consultation. Dr. A. has a patient extremely ill, and he request Dr B. to sea him. Or. A. and Dr. B. are personal friends?a strong affection subsists between them ?and it must be remembered that Or B under like circumstances, never fails to call onhisfriead Dr. A. I will not assert that ge. tlemen, thus situated, will be so dishonest, or that their personal ; relations will engress so much of their thoughts as to ; make the patient and his disease matters of secondary | consideration. But I may, without incurring the hazard I of contradiction, affirm that such an occurranoe would not be among the most improbable events of life. This 1 system of wholesale partnership, I trust, will never receive your sanction?it is wrong in principle, and leads to the most fatal results in practice. How often has that stereotyped phrase, "All has been done that could be , done," rung through the hearts of confiding friends. When the grave has closed on the victim, it is then too ! late for lamentation?too late to repine at senseless ere- j dulity?too late to say, would that we had called on a physician of our own ekoice, who, his judgment being Tree from all trammels, would have regarded the safety of our deceased friend as the only object of his oare, and whose moral courage would have enabled him, if necessary, to protest against treatment of which fa' could j not approve ! In order to save yourselves om tnis bitter reflection, and to carry out the great moral principles of your profession, be just ; ! and remember that whilst it is right you should place a . proper apprecla'ion on vour services, and receive an ad i equate compensation for professional labor, yet never | JuImmwI to desecrate te the purposes of trade a sci- , ence Dobl* and Uod-like?a liienca, the objeot of which is to secure health and blessinga to man. Whilst, therefore, in consultation, you will alwaya reapect the opiniona of your colleagues, and treat with courteay thoae with whom you may be aaaociated, yet a still higher and more aolemn duty will devolve on you?the duty of giving to the patient the advantage of whatever science and skill you may possess, irrespective of all personal considerations. This course of independent action may not, in the language of the day, render jou popular with your professional brethren from whom you may have differed in opinion? but it will secure you the approba- ' tion of your own consciences, and make fast and grateful I friends of those whom you may have thus rescued from | the grave. Look at the anxious mother, as she bends over her suffering child?her spirit crushed by the contemplation of losing the idol of her heart?her nights rendered sleepless?and her vigils eoeompanied by pangs ! which none but a mother's heart can feel?see what will I be the measures of her gratitude to the man who. by skill and judgment, restores to her the child which others had oousigned to death! it I most then be always borne in memory, thet the first duty of the physician it to guard with sacred care the life of his patient ; nor should he sufler any motive to divert him from the faithiul observance of this greet and fundamental object of his profession. It must, likewise, not be forgotten that a gentle and urbane bearing towards your patient is a noon to which he is entitled ; he will naturally leak to you for sympathy ; and, ia the hour of his anguish. he will deeply appreciate the exhibition of generous and kind feeling in nit behalf. But, gentlemen, le: me here guard you ugain?t a delusion, which sometimes results in the destruction of the patient. The heart of the physician mast not be permitted . ovur his miud ; vou will jcca. tUCI?HBnuf?>w<B?- -? _ sionally be placed la circumstance* in which the heart for the Instant, muit close up its lountain* of aympathy ; there will be no time lor you to commingle your tear* tvi'h those of agonized mends ; your duty will be to arreat the work of death?the di nger is imminent -the I friend* are gathered around the ooucn of their dying relative?their tub* penetrate the inmoet recede* of your heart?they look to you a* the only being under heaven on who** their laat hope depends?one moment's hesitation 1 or doubt, and all if io*t?tha disease triumphs, sml the , chamber ol sickness is converted into the gloom of death I and desolation. It is in case* like these that prompt: ness, decision, and energy must take the place of sympathy?and although your promptness may subject you to the charge of being rude, and your decMon be misI taken for tinaerity, yet if this promptness and decision will enable you, under these trying circumstanoes, to save human life, restore a lond motner to her weeping children, or a beloved wife to her husband, what caru you for tbe interpretation 7 which a selfish and heartless world may place on your conduct, hike the geed camarii tan, you have healed theaick, aod diffused joy and happiness among tha diatreased. It i* proper, gentlemen, that 1 should, on this occasion, advert lor an instant to a charge which hat been preloried against the <tudv ol medicine, and which has originated in a most groundless prejudice with regard to the tendencies of our science. It is alleged that the study of medicine not only weaki ens and distracts tbe mind in its religious convictions, but that it loads to positive inflJeliiy. This is, indeed, a fallacy. The study of medical science lead to infidelity! What, let me ask, is the basis of , hat science' Is it not anatomy, which discloses e us , the beautiful and intricate structure of man?a (true, ture full of the evidences of infinite wisdom?a structure so complicated, aud yet to perfect, that it bear* in all its I parts, the impress of divino intelligence! The study of medicine, while it fortifies the Christian mind, and elevatas Christian hope, points out,through the splendid demonstrations of anatomy?demonstration* which take a deep hold of the human haart?the fallacies of the soDhist. and the absurd dreams ?. the sceptic. In your daily avocations, while tnjlgta in mx niw inuiur;, uui loathsome part of your dutiea?1 mean the dissection of the dead?you have had revealed to your minds testlraony well auitad to the contemplation of the reviler of !

Hit reason would become convinced of the eloquence of nature?and her silent, yet graphic display a, would force him, in the pride of hie heart, to exclaim : the finger of Omnipotence ia, indeed, here. You perceive, then, that the profeeeion which you have adopted, whilet it will enable you to dispense the solid benefits of a science intended by the Creator to alleviate the sufferings of the human race, embodies, at the same time, irresistible proof of his own infinite wisdom?it exhibits the greatoess n> God? and disoloees the utter insignificance of n aft I It is your good fortune, gentlemen, to live in an age ol enterprise and progress ; the supremacy of intellect exhibits itself in everything around us Religion, the arts and sciences, the profession of modicine, mechanics, all bear ample testimony that this Is not an age of mental lumber. Man seemi to have brought into active requisition all the powers of his mind. He has not only solved problems which previous ages had coniiderad bs, yond the ken of human wisdom. But hs has reduced to C radical and useful results theories which, if they have eretoiors not been regarded in ere absurdities, have at least resisted all attempts at deduction. Look, for example, at the recent discoveries in phyaical science? ! discoveries which, whilst they portray the triumphs ol mind, demonstrate that man, finite ami bumble, compared with the Author of hia being, ia, through the vigor of bii intellect, constantly adding to the wealth ol human i knowledge, and the immeasurable good of the human | raca.

Alderman Hast could not understand why the bill of Henstis should bo paid and Maleny's rat used ; they were both employed in the same department, end performed similar work. He thought i* would be unjust to Malony to refer hi* bill while they paid the other. Alderman Messbiiolc said that Heustis was a regularly appointed officer, having been appointed by the Judges or the Court of Session*, while Molony was only apjieioted by the ex-Aldcrman of the Sixth ward, aad that made all the difference in the world.
