r NEW YORK HERALD. N?vr Turk, Tuft^ky. Mowh 16, W4I. Kiwi from Kuroft. We learn tuat a few of the speculators have lately U?it SUA'C**1 ?n arranging an. j:*pr?ts to t leave Halifax, the moment the Htbernia reaches that port. That steamer is now in her twelfth ilny, and may be expected at Boston in a day or two. -4 The New Post Ofltre Laws?Subscriber* to the Herald. We referred to the new Post Oftioe laws that wjre pissed by Congress at the close of the last session, and to the regulations which have been ad >p:ed by the Postmaster General, under those law*, in nu article in y -ste'dny's Herald We recur to the subjec' to-day to point < ut anot't er benefit (rom these laws, whi'h escaped our at en-1 'iOm at the tune. fit community k ,w very well that ti e mail di ,.iir.uiei,r ui our iver..meiit has been in a . deplorable st.r'a .1 , tri.v 1 . tvn> or mom ye us r.

Under tim cheap poster law, tne bulk ol correspondence increased wo Hutl J if c ibid to what it whs under the old i i ;i? b!is:iv ) the deputy post odices, of ii .. .. uJr i ... ij.ii' lario, :ind required j k do Not a iilislamiing .

To s was one of the causes of the irrt-gu arity of the mails, :is we have been frequently in- I formed by the postmasters, but it appears by \ the law recently passed, that it will b obviated | 1 i 1 'tie future, because the commissions of the ' postmasters are increased to an amount, that 1 will euabie them to employ abundant labor to ' perform die du ies of their respective offices. < L'nd^rtho new law thev are allowed forty percent < on receipts when amounting to one hundred dol- j I lars per annum ; thiny-three and one third on ; 1 sums between one hundred and four hundred ; | 1 thirty per cent on sums between four hundred s and twenty-four hundred, and twelve and a half 1 per Cent on all sums over twenty-four hundred, ' On newspapers, pamphlet", &c , the rate is ftl.y per cent. ( These are very liberal commissions, and will ] enable every postmaster to hire such additional assistance as will enable him to attend to the du- ( ties of his office perfectly. The excuse that postmasters cannot attend to their duties is now therefore removed, and they must hereafter be held responsible for failures and irregularities. Such of our subscribers as do not receive the Herald regularly, will look to the postmaster of their town or village, lor the future. They may feel assured that no pains will be spared on our part to have them sent regularly. We have a mailing department separate and distinct Irom the remaining branches of our establishment, which gives constant employment to eight clerks, and their assistants. These clerks are young men of experience in that business, and who, we are satisfied, attend strictly to their business. The mails must now bo otrictly watched. Mystkeioos Disappearances.?It frequently happens in this city, that one of our citiaens will laave bis home for u>? rai(?use ui going a short tusrance to see a friend or do some business, and never be seen afterwards. More of these mysterious disappearances have occurred this than in any preceding year. A few of those' who d sappear come to light again in a few days, perhaps in a wt ok, and account for their absence from their homes and families hv tnni/h stnries nl hnvimr been drugged with soda water, and afterwards gagged and atharwise injured, but their stories are not believed. It is not of these reappearances, however, that we now wish to speak, but. of the real genuine my-terious disappearances, the objects of which have never returned 'l hat such disappt arances are of frequent occurrence, every person who reads the daily papers, is well informed. Fiaining advertisements, offering latge rewards for any information that wdi lead 'o the discpvery of the missing persons, appear almost every week, and frequently no udings are ever learned ol them . Now we do not think that this good city of ours is a niche lower down in the scale of morality, than any other city of its dimensions ai d populat on 011 the face of the globe. We cannot behave that tnese misting persons are murdered, and afterwards disposed Of to prevent evidences of the crime appearing against the authoisofi , because as we said bef >re, New York is as moral a ciry as any oilier, and no such crimes are committed in I other cities that we know of But, if they are not ] murdered and secreted, what becomes of these ] vict.msl We know they disappear, bat where do they disappear to 1 This is a question which it behooves every man, woman aad child, in the community, to ponder upon. On every case of this kind, our citizens should appoint committees of investigation, and offer large rewards for the apprehension of the villains who commit these daring crimes. They will have an opportunity, no doubt, very soon; and when the committee shall have been properly organized, and ready to undertake their commission, we with them to step into our or flee, and we will send a person who will direct them to places where we think their labors will be crowned with success. The victims, we are confident, will be brought to light, not alive, to be sure, but dead Indeed, we confidently assert, that if the numcioas Hills of Howth in miniature that have remained in our streets and thoroughfares for months past, as monuments of the unfitness of the dirty street party to conduct the atrairs of this city, were opened and examined carefully, the remains of many of these mysterious disappearances would be account d for on ^reasonable grounds, Nom[nati.nu Committrks?The harmonious democracy, alias the "dirty street party," elected their nominating committees in all the wards yesterday. We are informed that there is as much dissatisfaction and diss^recment among their ranks as in any former year. The elements of disruption nre at work, but we suppose that they will be controlled as they have been in former years, by the leaders ol the party, who have a peculiar knack of whipping unruly animals into the traces We are informed that the usual number ol noses were flattened and heads -racked at the polls yesterday, and the proceedings were as noisy, and as much blood and l?eer were spilt, as in former years. Mati. Kotrras attn Distanchs in Mkxioo.?We give in another column a table of distances be- ' ween cities, towns and villages in Mexico, many of which will probably be occupied by our troops before the war shall have baen ended We have extracted them from a Mexican almanac, pubfished in the capital in the year 1846, which we sliink may be relied upon for accuracy. We recommend our readers to preserve it for future ! -fere nee. Tm Pkospeuty op Niw Yo** ?The olty of New York is at present pregnant with evidences of prosperity. At at no time, perhaps, in iu history did it present a more cheering and enlivening aspect than it does at present. Our mechanics, tradespeople, professional men, merchants^and laVxrxing people are all employed at remunerating rales, and appear cheerful and happy. Rents are advancing rapidly?provisions of all kinds~are getting dearer; and speculation, which follows prosperity as the flash of light follows the meteor, is commencing. Uptown lots are at a premium, and before many years we may have as many sites for cities that will not be built for generations , to come, laid out with the greatest mathematical ! precision?and as many water privileges in the ) moon or elsewhere, advertised and sold,as we had in the memorable years '36, *36 and '87. The greatest evidence of the prosperity of a civy like this, is the number of theatres and other p'aces of amusement that are supported. We like to see mechanics, and other working, men, alter their daily toils are over, take tueir wives and families to some place oi amusement in 'lie event! g, where th--y can obtain rational ai.dtn ocent enjoyment at a cheap rate. It elevates them from the position of automata?mere instruments ol'labor, and induces cheerfulness. It r Sieves thi.ii mmda from the dull monotony of labor, '.n<l lits them to pu sue their career with clu e ltd spirits. j Judging trom the number of places of amuse-| meiit supported in the city, we tthould say thit ; N w York is as prosperous as she ever vtas. i V. - ve at present s X :!u atrna and one circus, in 1 id 1- 'si, besides a museum Once or 'wice in . we-It, we ijhvi conce "c, exh luteins, and lec tu res, and a LI arc well patronized All remunerate the managers arid proprietors; and the subject j of building another large opera hoase in the upper part of the city, is much tallied of by our men u) capital. f low long tins state of prosperity will aontinue, we cannot even guess There is every probability that it will last lor a number of years; at all events it will be many years before we shall have so much distress and bankruptcy as marked the year 1S37. Thk Kxlief Ship macedonrxif'-^-The Macedonian will leave her moorings at the navy yard j as e on as possible. Volunteers have already coino forward, and offered to bring her over to this city free of expense, and others offer to ship j screw on the same terms. The Common Coun- ! nil will send out their appropriated #5000 worth ! d'food by this conveyance. We hope to see all jossihle expedition used in getting the cargo here tnd shipped. Procrastination may cost scores, /es, hundreds of lives, which expedition might ; lave The Jersey ship will be off in about three weeks. How many days is she to lead the Ma jeuoman ; Travel to Boston.?The New Haven route is i ^uite regular in its movements. We are constant- | ly indebted to Messrs. Cloyes and Dennis for Boston papers. They arrive here about nine o'clock j every night. News from France.?The ship Columbiana, 1 from Havre, arrived at Charleston on Thursday last. She lelt Havre on the 8J of February. The Father of the Naval School ?Thomas j Goin is with the dead ! Who did not know him 1 I For thirty years his energy and honesty of charac. ter made him one ol the first ol the " shipping masters" of the United States. Shipping, as he did, thousands of sailors every year, he became intimately acquainted with the requirements of commerce and of the navy, in all relating to the efficient manning of our ships. His sagacity foresaw the scarcity of men which now exists?when our ships of war can scarcely enlist one man per day, and the Mexican war is consequently pro'tracted?apd when our merchantmen, laden with food for the' starvmir million* of Iieiand and Scotland, are delayed, from day to day, from a want of seamen?and his philanthrophy and patri* otism induced him to undertake, from hi s own private resources, the expense of inducing Congress to establish a naval school. By an outlay of upwards of $10,000, and after many years of incessant labor his efforts were crowned with a limited success. Thousands of the sailors now afloa , I owe to Mr. Goin a debt of gratitude for the first ! rudiments of a n? itical education. He was emphatically the lri' of the poor man's son, and whilst he never < irrelled with the good fortune oi those who obtained commissions n our navy ; from adventitious birth, he strenuously advocated the claims of the children of poverty who possessed talent and worth. Mr. Goin'* nlan would have been of imrnlciila j ble advantage, had he lived to ckrry out its de1 tails, with the assistance of a liberal Congress? 1 but his good deeds live alter hiin. Several large I cities have awarded him public tbanks; and wo trust that the ingratitude wuh winch some have treated his lab irs, will not deter others from attempting to complete what he so well began. His sudden death was superinduced by his extraordinary exertions, night and dav, in the arduons labor oi manning the ships of war hastily prepared for the Gulf squadron. He died blessing Ins country, and is mourned hv friends innumer able H'? bie hren of the M isonic and l)dd Fellows' Institutions followed li s remains, with many mourners, toGieenwood Cemetery, where, alter a life of useiuiues?, he sleet s in peace All the shipping in port, American and foreign, wore their colors at halt mast, throughout the day, as a mark o( respect. flaslcsl. | Italian 0??*a.?'"I'Lombardi" was performed Irs, evening at Palmo's, being its lest presentation for tl.e i season, unless the subscribers should especially requ. st the managers to revive it. This piece has bad an excellent run ; the house has been filled, sometimes to reple. tion, and never has the audience been so small as to give good reason for the managers to complain Aud its sue' cess was well deserved, tor whatever may be said of this, or any other of Verdi's compositions, even giving it the lowest place awarded to it by churlish criticism tiie music is respectable, and tbe 'business" of the piece is such that the moat brilliant effect may be produced in putting it upondhe stage.and no pains were spared in this department in the production ol 'I'Lombardi" at Palmo's. The scenery and dresses ere the nt plut ultra of their kind I he performance last night was as it always ru been excellent, and we almost regret that we arc to lose i the pleasure of again listening to the music of this beautiful piece?although it gives place to other and lavorite peras On Wednesday evening, "Lucia di Lammermoor" will, by requesf. be performed ; and, on Friday night, wo are to have "The Barber of Seville," for which we promise a warm reception Tu, Nca Is.,.,. n..i. vlr. s... u i mondation of the l roiipt of Italian singers, who are about to viait this and neighboring cities. We shall ho happy to welcome tbem in due season, but aa the company now performing at Palmc'i hare made arrangement* for remaining here for a couple of month* longer, and espccially, aa we underatond that Pico will aing in a number of the new piecea to be produced, we hope the mating* meat of the rew opera will make their visit to Boston before they appear here. It ia hardly to be expected that both compeniee would meet with the patronage neceslary to auatain two auch expensive eatabliahmenta. hub Ailing a ahort engagement at Boaton flrit, however, tbe Havana company might come here with excellent proa pectai and the muaical appetitea of the opera goirg people having been sharpened by never cloying performance* ot Beneventano, Beneditti, Bmjqurico, Pico and Barili, would be in capital ordar for their reception.

It ia the very poetry of motion?a highly wrought picture of grace, an elaborate and beautiful development oi the youthful form The Scotch, the Hwias, the Aaatrian dance* in the " Pot Puurri," are highly effective, full of ; a charming variety and display ; there ia a striking na tienality about them, an 1 they rival each other iu intereat, piquancy, grace and beauty. The new dance, the " Paa Rococo,'' waa received with enthuaiaalic applause ; the coatume ia that of the ago of Louis Quitroze?the manner ia truly characteriatic of the age ; it ia full ef point and marked with humor throughout. The dt meaner ia grave and ateady. and the aira aaaumed show with a happy and delicate satire the pride and the follira ol a court It ia exceedingly amusing, and created a great delight in the audienco. "The Paa Oriental" is full el gorgeoua diapla> and rich imagery.

Aa it waa I among our first conceptions of magnificence and iplen- ' dor, ao it wakens a sptllin our maturer years. It recall* a distant land of dreams, over which the pen of genius j and the angle flight of luventivn fancy have thrown a , bright and mjsterious carm. The whole is a rich en tert.iimnen'. and exhnustless in variety and attraction. bowKKv Thkit ke?The ben* fit of M'Ue Dinner, lost evci'ing, was attended by one of the most crowded tic uses we have seen for some time at this popular theatre. and the attractions put forth in the bill, independent of her own accomplishm* nil, as a danicvte of high celebrity and acknowh dged ability could not fail to have drawn together a "jam" louse on tiie occasion. The "Mysteries of Paris" was first produced-and the pi?ue abounding in incident, was a tmiialily perform ed by the higtily talented cast, bringing out the able powers ol the entne stock Company Naafle as the (Jhnrini-ur, or ritabher. was excellent; Hailawny'e Toitillard cauilel; Clarke's Prince Ko iolph was admirably sustained, and Vache as Mnrphy, lulls lealized 'he expectations ol his friends The part ol Fleur de Marie, the Uou-tieuse, b> Mrs Sergeant, was ,<layed viy prettily and wi h her usual talents Indeed we have seldom seen her talents appear to nioie advantage thau in this piece , last evening I'll* beautiful bullet of " L . 8) lpiiide" was next produced, in wh eh vlHe Uimiei look tne principal | par - ih Sylpn On in <k<"g bei up/earunee, she was giHi ted with the m??-t ntbusiaMio applause Mile O'eunu and Vlousietu Bo me, as Koiuie and Dooald, ably supported her in the peiltn m .nce. and ihe ladies who sustained the pares ol the attendant ay Ipbs, peifornied ' with muoh eleven ess The whole perloimum:* passed j of wiih much applause, and the dancing ol Mile Dinner 1 Mid Mile Ocenun nod Monsieur fieuuio, gave infinite su- , tislaction to the ontire houso.

In "La Ma- j zurka," her dancing surpassed everything of the kind j we have seen for some time, and her style, belonging to the Italian school, was very much admired. The atirao I tions heie are highly creditable to the talen'ed perior- ! mere who have been engaged for dramatic representation The 'Loan of a Lover," "Corsair's Bride," arid other excellent pieces were also produced. Chapman, Urattau, Frederick*, Dunn, Mrs Isherwood Miss Chapman, Mrs. Walts, together with the entire talented company appealed herelast evening. The bills of to-night will be found highly attractive.

He lifted up two heavy weights weigh ing about 100 poucda with his hands from the ground, his feot being attached by a heavy cord to a pole, aul performed several other feats that drew forth the most enthusiastic plaudits from every quarter of the heuse ?His performance on tho drums drew forth much applause, and his appearance here adds considerably to the attractions, which are numerous. The riding of Mr. Sergeant was a beautiful specimen of equestrianism. His changeable act was performed with infinite ability?and as Doctor O'Toole his performance of an Irish jig upon the fiddle?bis horse going at the same time at full speed, is a novelty which law have had the opportuuitv of see ing on the part of equestrian petformers. '1 he entire troupe here present a variety of grand attractions, which draw nightly the most crowded houses. Clshke's Benefit.?This gentleman, well known to the Bowery folks as an excellent actor and great favorite, takes a benefit at the Bowery theatre on Thursday evening next The beautiful comicality of "Niche ! las Nickleby" will be performed, in which Mr. Walcott, (from Mitchell's.) plays the part of Squeers; also, the interesting drama of "hixteen String Jack," with other j entertainment*.

In the sixth ward, an exhibition of rowd)ism, that would disgrace a bear garden, was pre- J vented by the partisans of the rival sections of the j party who were assembled.

A regular row was the conse qui uce Blood ana beer flowed. This occurred frequently during the ay in the 0tta ward, and a regular pull collar ana bloedy nose affair came off between some ; 01 the belligerents.
