U. 1?~l p.-W. ? NEW YORK HERALD. Now York, W'Mliimilny, April 7, WIT, Tt*r C?|itiirf of Vera Crux. We published an Extra Unuhl, yesterday morning, containing ?<>inr intelligence that we received by express from Philadelphia, to the effect that A era Cruz had been taken by our forces, after a desperate resistance, at the oust of eight hundred of our troops. rrVi,i fitnumnr SAtillifkrnjir hjturi<v,r nrrivpil here an hour or two after the news was received, and, according to her accounts, no reliable news had reached Charleston, tlit* place where the rumor originated, of the taking f Vera Cruz. We have no doubt that the report wemaiure : hut we may hourly expect reliable intelligence trom that quarter. The probability is that Vera Cruz is now in our possession ; but, judging from the strength of the walls around the eiiv, and the determination of the Mexicans to defend it obstinately, its capture has been attended with great loss ol life. News from Europe?Movements In the Corn Markets. By the arrival of the packet ship Columbia, from Liverpool, and Northumberland, from London, we have advices two days later than those received by the Ilibcrnia. Political intelligence of interest was rather scarce, and the commercial uccounts ure not very important. There had been no material variation in the cotton market as regards prices, and the operations were confined principally to the trade. We shall look in vain for any improvement in prices for this staple, and for unv activity of consemienee in the market, so lone us the present dc ficiency in breadstuff* continues, and the price ; of food ranges so high. The accounts we receive by every arrival, contirin those previously rcceiv- i rd relative to the scarcity of food, and us all j doubt must now be removed, very little uppre- j hension appears to be felt umong speculators, on both sides of the Atlantic, in relation to a decline in prices. Indian corn was at the latest dates steadily advancing, the supply being short, not- j withstanding the large shipments from this side. ! There is very little danger of breadstuff* pouring j into Great Britain and Ireland fast enougli to ac- j cumulate large 9fock*, the consumption of foreign grain being more than equal to the receipts. Our advices by the lute arrivals, report the existence of a very large export demand from the continent, and shipments to some considerable extent in that direction, had been made from London and Liverpool. The effect of this move- | ment will he to put up prices in all the markets of Great Britain, and to increase the deficiency. It was full six months from the date of our last j accounts from Liverpool to harvest time, and the ) poorer classes in every part of Europe are des- | tined, within that period, to experience more j distress from famine than they have yet. All we 1 . I can send forward from this country will be but a ; drop in the bucket. It will lie impossible to get forward in season one fourth part of what we can spare, in consequence of the scarcity of ves eels. The London money market continued very much depressed. Consols ruled at prices current when the steamer left, and there was every probability of a greater scarcity of money than had already been experienced. The ruling rate for money was a3i per cent. This news, on the whole, is about the same as brought by the steamer. Tjik Tuavklling Season.?The travelling season for the year 18-47 has now regularly commenced, and before many days elapse, our beautiful Hudson river, the great highway to the North and West, will be covered with our splendid and magnificent steamboats. Long Island Sound, too, will be dotted in the same manner. The proprietors of the several boats on both of these lines have spared no expense during the past winter in adding to their splendor, as well as in overhauling thoroughly their machinery, and refitting and re-decorating their inside, as well as out. \Ve arc glad to hear that Captain A. J)e( I root, ! who commanded the Niagara the season after she was built, will command the splendid steamer Roger Williams, and will ply regit mriy ueiwecn iacw i wrK aim .itiiany mix season. Up will commence as- soon as the river in open. ('apt. J)e Groot is well known to travellers as one of our most skilful, urbane and gentlemanly commanders, lie lias a way of his own by which lie makes all under his cure as comfortable as they would be at home in their parlors. Whatever boat he commands is sure to be a favorite with the public. We are also informed that ('apt. Van l'elt lias received command of the splendid Knickerbocker, on the Norwich and Worcester route, to Boston ; and ( 'apt. Williams, the Worcester, on the same route. These gentlemen are likewise well known to the travelling public as skilful and accommodating commanders. The Knickerbocker is one of the "wilietu boats oil our w aters. She left Norwich on Monday evening last, at half-past eleven o'clock, and arrived here yesterday morning at -even. Travellers will find everything necessary to their comfort and ease on the hunts commanded by these three gentlemanly commanders. Tiik I if. or Tin: Haro.xiktkk anh tiik Discovkky or Symuks's IIoli:.?The precise position of the mysterious place known to navigators by the name of Syiiinies's Hob', has at length been discovered, a fact which seriously interests our packet | and ship captains. I To Captain Dunn, of the ship Philadelphia, is due the credit of having lirst. solely through his faith in the barometer, learned its whereabouts, it may now be set down on the charts, and us the latitude and longitude is given in the annexed letter from Captain Dunn, it is very easily found.

State of the Markets. ac. ac. ac. The iwckei ship Northumberland, Capt. Griswold, arrived ofl'the Hook early yesterday morning. She was immediately boarded l?v our special messenger, and her news sent by special express, overland, to lire .Veto York Htrald office. The packet ship Columbia, Captain Hill, has also arrived. She sailed from Liverpool on the (ith ult. The news by these packets is two days later. The Paris Preaat states that the Government of "VVurtemberg has contracted a loan with the house of Rothschilds and Grunelins, of Frankfort-on-the-Maine, for the completion of railroads through that country. The amount of the loan is 12.000,000 florins, (nearly 1,000,000/. sterling,) and will bear interest at the rate of *li per cent. Export of Corn to France.?A vessel arrived in the River at the commencement of the week from a port on the Lincolnshire coast, with a cargo of corn, which was intended for the London market; but which, on its arrival, was immediately bought up, and without being landed here exported to France. The Sardinian and Swiss authorities have determined on the construction of a line of railroads, to connect Piedmont with Germany across Switzerland, in the direction of the Lake of Constance. The oldest inhabitant" is said lobe a woman now livinogin Moscow, in Kussiu, who is 168 years of age. At the age of 12*2 she married her fifth husband. The French M.iii. Steamers.?France uppears about to contribute that share to ihe extension of steam navigation on the large scale which her rank and position its a iimntfiine and commercial state demand. The Chambers are seriously occupied with an extensive project for intersecting the Atlantic with several lines of steamers of the first flans, connecting the chief ports of I France in the Mediterranean and on the western coast with the great centres of population and j commerce of the New World. The principal line will communicate between Havre and New Y<5rk. Instead of paying a suh- j vention in money to the company which will anilertake this, it is proposed tliat the government ! shall give it the use ot four powerful steamships, , which were built in accordance with the measures proposed in 1840, the company engaging to keep I them in repair, to maintain the machinery, and insure them. In return for this, the mail service between France and New York is to be executed without charge to the State. The contract is made for ten years. It is expected that this project will immediately pass the Chambers without opposition, and as the ships und machinery arc complete and ready lor service, the line will probably be in practical operation in tlie course of the spring. The other lines contemplated by the legislature are three, directed severally upon the Antilles, 11 io de Janeiro, and the Havana, the last having brunches to New Orleans, and other ports in the Gulf of Mexico. From the comparative small amount of the commerce, and more especially of the intercourse in passengers with these ports, the establishment of the enterprise otiers much more difficulty, and its result is more doubtful. The ports of France, from which these southern lines w ill start, have not yet been settled. Movements of the European Powers. [From the Paris National, March 'J.j Why the concentration of Hussion troops on the frontier of tiatiriu.' WtiHt interest commands it?

Austria is not an empire, but an element of violence. Thin conglomeration of population, of territory, of various manners, customs, aiul ideas, nud contradictory traditions, united by force under one sceptre, requires a permanent compression.? Nothing holds together when nothing is united; the threads of this iron net require constant, repairs.? \ustria feels the shock of tin- least movement In Kurope; she immediately draws her bayonets, reinforces her garrisons. and advances her stujiid legions. She can only maintain herself by producing feur. Kor thHt reason she lias increased her spies in Italy, und she is endeavoring to excite disturbances by establishing a corps d'armce on the borders of Tcssino, and thus menacing at the same time Piedmont ami Switzerland. All the Governments arc now contracting loans. Prussia is convoking her State-General in order to contract a loan and tore-establish her lost credit. Kngiand is borrowing 200.000.000, Spain 50.000,0000. Montemolin 25.000.000. Don Miguel is negotiating, and he likewise would wisli to raise a loan. As for our pHrt, if we escape such a necessity tills year, we must infallibly have recourse to a loan next year. What is causing such uneasiness throughout Kuropo It must he admitted that it is liecause nothing is founded on a firm and solid basis. Suppose the death of one man to-morrow, and the disturbance which agitates proridednt minds will be converted into facts. This event is not necessary to render the positien caused by the Spanish marriages more satisfactory. The causes which excite Austria and the Northern t.'ourts are well known, and the motives of the avowed hostility of Kugland are likewise well known. The latter does not disguise her preparations; the Government demands new supplies for the iucrease of her marine, her army, and her artillery. A portion of the overplus of the last budget has been employed In fitting nut now ships. Several ships of the new lino hit armed nt .Miiltn, and it Is contemplated to reinforce tlio already numerous fleet in the Mediterranean by eight ships of the line. In it for mere pleasure that the Whig Cabinet Is multiplying its expenses during a year of such afflicting scarcity! In it in view of an I'topia that Lord John Russell said during the dehatu on tliv navy estimates that ' (treat Britain ought to l>e prepared to meet all contingencies'" The Rational concludes by demanding what preparations France is making to defend herself from the threatened attacks! What armaments arc preparing, or what ships of war are placed on the stocks! The Cabinet is agitated by intrigues for replacing such or such a Minister. To-day M. Lacare Laplagno retires, to-morrow ho will resign. "Such are the combinations which our great politicians imagine to provide against the most difficult complications in which we have hcen engaged during 17 years," Kmlgrntlon front Irelnntl to .America. [From the London Chronicle. March ft.] While Iristi members in the House of Commons are demanding increased facilities for the emigration of the people, the Irish journals are full of statements as to the unusually large numbers in which the people ure either emigrating or preparing to emigrate to North America. We have no doubt that, the emigration of the present year will touch, if it does not exceed, the utmost limits within which such a movement, carried on by private and ordinary means, can take plaee willi safety. The emigration to America from the United Kingdom was very great both in 184 ft and In HMO. Tile numbers in tiie former year amounted to 00.000. and in the first three quarters of 184H to 110.000 persons.about two-thirds being from Ireland, and the increase in Ia40 being almost entirely Irish, From the account* which now reach tic. it it not improbable thai Ireland will pour out tcom "gOO.000 to 300.000 of her people in 1847. We may hope, without feeling entire confidence, that Canada and the United Statea will be able to atiaorb tliis multitude 'Itiietly and profitably, and there is no doubt tliut the immense demand for agricultural produce in the present vear will afford unusual facilities for such absorption.? I'he United Statet will be the ureal gainer by this movement. The current sets thither. It is estimated that shout one-fourth of the emigrants of 1816 settled in the British colonics, und it is a striking proof of the resources of the Canailas. that '48.0(H) persons were added to their population in one year, without causing distress or an over supply of labor. Three-fourths, however, of those who leave our shores go to become citizens of the great Republic. Wc must confess that, looking to the social effect of tbis movement on the mother country, we sec a good leal to regret. We fear that it will tend very little to relieve the pressure of distress In Ireland. If it bo true, as Is stated w ith too much probability, that, the emigrants are chiefly from. the class of small farmers, and from the middle and upper, rather than the lower sect ions of that class. In tills case the relation between capital and labor will remain as unfavorable as before, and the power of society, as a whole, to set itself right and to gi I into a self-supporting condition may become i"ne insienu ui greater. j Dr rural population 01 irrmim contains many varieties of condition, which flow Into each other by'imperceptible (.hades.

The rout of even reaching North America cannot be net down ut less thuu JC'l 10.4. or ?3 a-hcud. An ordinary family, therefore, would require twelve or fifteen pound* for the more passage. and fur such families as wo have described. I anything like this sunt must be unattainable. In some eases small holders who are destitute may be sent out by landlords, but no landlord will have an interest in seml] log out the mere laborer orconaere-ntan. His departure 1 is not necessary to clear the land. Thus the most destitute will remain, and the emigration will be ono not of mere lalior. hut. of capital also. Thirty or forty thousand | heads of fumilics. the most thrifty, intelligent, and enterprising of the class which lias some meuns. will probably leave Ireland within the year, and it is at least doubtful whether the sociul system of that country, enfeebled as it is. will derive vigor from the removal of so much healthy blood. I We eaunot hut wish that a different and. as wo believe, a more attractive object were held out to this class of persons. There is much, no doubt, to leuipt them across the Atlantic. The fart that the Irish in the United States send from three cities in a single year Jtl'100.000 to their relatives at home, is not only a proof to the statesI man of the industry, perseverance and frugality which natives of Ireland can evince, hut alio a potent encouragement to thote who can trace the mother country, to seek abroad that secure Jirlil of exertion which they do not find on their own soil. A security which they , would prise in the highest degree, and use with abundant profit both to themselves and others, might be offered to them at home. Ten acres in Ireland in perpetuity would he more valued by sucli men as we have described, and worth more to them, than a hundred in the remote regions beyond the .Mississippi, if emigration on any large , scale were still necessary to relieve the overstocked labor market in Ireland, it would be better that it should take place from tho destitute class, even though Government aid were necessary to effect it. But with so strong a dis1 position to emigrate amongst a class who have themselves the means of leaving the country, we think Carl Grey bos done wisely in determining not to administer to it an artificial stimulus Ireland. There are on the books of the Dublin Mendicity 8,45(5 dully recipients of charity. Immense numbers of young men are offering themselves at Cork, for enlistment in the army, i The Young Ireland doctrines are spreading rapidly.? Already their weekly rent exceeds thut taken at Conciliation Hull. The amount declared at their meeting yesterday week wns i'21 Ms. fid. The latest accounts state that there are fewer deaths bv actual starvation in Dublin, Cork. Limerick, and the other large towns, but the returns sent up to the Castle, and the statements received by the Central Relief Committee, represent the average mortality amongst tho poor us frightfully increased since the beginning of the ! mouth. While the large towns are better off, the suffer| ings of the people in the interior are more intense thun ever. Hundreds are dying every day of slow starvation, i of dysentery and fever, the consequence of insufficient j nourishment ; and ull the accouuts from the districts , remote from great markets, concur in anticipating even a worse state of things. The supplies of corn in the haggards of the farmers are rapidly disappearing, not. as some think it is, transferred to the ground as seed, but either used by their futilities as food, or sold to distant dealers. This is the substance of almost every coinmu tiication from the southern ana western counties, from parts of Donigal and Antrim, from Longford. .Vlcath and Leitrim. The great majority of the deaths arc from diseases brought on by starvation. The Dublin correspondent of tho Daily Ntwt says Emigration is growing more nctive. Our quays are crowded with multitudes, not of the poor, but of tlie well fed and comfortable. I have seen several group* starting for Liverpool by the steamers, and all appeared to be 1 farmers of a better description. If any encouragement were held out by the lauded proprietors, the current would be far stronger, and where they do co-operate, the proffered aid does not act as an efficient stimulant. A large land owner. Mr. R. S. Guinness, of Dublin, has addressed a letter to his tenants ou this subject. He acts with far greater liberality tlinn most of his order ; and wliile lie advises the poorer teuunts to emigrate at once. 1 lie also assists them by a gilt of 3/. for each member of : the family. " the whole family going together." On arrival, whether ut New York, Quebec, or elsewhere, the j emigrant will llnd in bank if. for each member of his family. Mr. Guinness concludes with the following parental advice:?" 1 have but one further advice to give you, that whatever land you go to, you will be loyal subjects to the government under which you live ; that you obey the laws of that country j but above all, that you | look with hope, confidence, and gratitude, to that good and merciful Providence, who will have preserved you uud your families from the famine here, and brought you to the plenty and ubunduuee that, awaits you in America." Wnnce. We have received the Paris papers of Wednesday to the 3d uit. j The Journal ties Debals devotes a long article to the question of the establishment of a line of commuuicu! tion by steam between the jiorts of France and the continent of America, and urges upon the ( liamber of Deputies the necessity of adopting the bill now before it for that, purpose. The Constitutionnrl makes some remarks upon the bank question, trom which wo gather that it, upon the w hole, approi ca of the conduct of the bunk throughout the niouey crisis, and entertains an expectation that the measures recently adopted by the bank to prevent a furtlieir drain of money will he found to be sufficient for the existing exigency. The Cuurrier Fran rait says:?To celebrate their re vi < ?in if. - e .i...? ..i.... i ?i I-.MIIIIIUIIUII, .<(.

The Courrier in very apt. however, to state as facts what are merely probabilities, and we suspect that in the present instance it lias renorted to its old practices. The Chamber of Deputies uiet on Wednesday, when tile Minister of the Interior presented a hill granting the ' sum of four millions of francs in aid of the public chari' table institutions of the kingdom, in consequence of the high price of provisions. A good deal of interest is felt in Purls as to the modifi| cation of the duties on cotton and iron, which it is uni dcrstood to be the intention of the French government i to introduce about the end of the present month. At | present manufactured cottons are eutirely prohibited iu France, but it is understood their introduction will be allowed at a duty of from 26 to 30 per cent on the valuation. This duty is of itself so enormous, that it will amount pretty nearly to a complete prohibition, hut still it is understood that it will he vigorously opposed by the ! manufacturers who at present enjoy the monopoly. The duty upon iron is at. present 20 per cent, and it is under' stood that the minister intends to propose its reduction ! to 10 per cent. i A postscript ts our Paris letter contains the following: M. Guizot lias just recoived an invitation to dinner, . for Tuesday, the ltith instant, from Lord and Lady NorI manby. Thus the reconciliation is complete, for M. (iuizot will reply to-morrow to the F.ngllsh Amhussador that he cordially accepts the Invitation." This Courrier Franqait states that an atiache Of the French Forcigh Ofllce has been despatched to Tunis on a special mission. He is said, the bearer of the re{ ply of the French Government to the application of the | Hey for support against the Sultan, it is added that the affair lias become more complicated in consequence of ! the ambassadors of the foreign Powers at Constantinople I having excited the Divan to act against the Bey ofTunis. Spain. Our accounts from Madrid, of the Jtith of February, state that the departure of the t^uncu Mother for Paris. 1 was to take place on the Nth or 10th of March. The debate on the address was still going on. and was , likely to last a week longer. When the courier left Mad| rid. M. Mon was replying to the vigorous speech of M. Ma dor. The accounts from the north of Spaiu still describe ! the t arlists as daily Increasing in number and strength. I but they give no data upon which an estimate can be formed of their force. The new loan is meeting with considerable opposition in the ('ongress. Urrmany. A letter from Berlin, dated Feb ildd. says:?"It has ! Licit is to lie president of the General Diet, which opens on the Uth April. It is said that in all communication* and official document* the noble- will be designated us the 'tirst assembly.' and the members of the three other States us the 'second assembly.' The last will have fur ! president M tie Rochow do Stnlpe. marshal of the eonrt. . It. was stated at. one time by the newspapers that Count d'Arnim de BoiUcnhurg. late Minister of the Interior, would be Marshal of the Diet. He was. In fact, nominated to that post by the King, but positively refused to undertake the duties." Poland. The German Univerial Garc/t< publishes the follow ing letter from Warsaw :? "The Russian Government fearing no doubt, that the passage in the speech of the King of the French and that of the Queen of Great Britain, relative to t lie suppression i of Cracow, might produce too great a sensation in this i city, has commanded the censors to suppress that passago in the national journals, and to cut the paragraph I out of ail forcigh journals previous to their delivery to their address. 1 he passage in the speech of the King of the French, relative, to the treaty of commerce and . navigation concluded with Russia, litis likewise been suppressed, the Emperor not wishing that his subjects should tie acquainted with his relations with foreign countries." India. Wi luivc received our despatches from Bombay to the 1st of February. They bring interesting Intelligence. The affairs of Lahore were going on slowly; the Governor-General, having regulated the government of that country, und placed Col. Lawrence as resident, and Mir John Liithr at, the bend of the British troops, left that capital ou the 111li of January, and proceeded to t lie prot"eted stkh Stales, and was e.xnected to reach i PuttecaUah oil l bo 1st of February.

In liiuterat the Uuicowur appears to neglect his duties as a Sovereign in order to make money as u banker. Travelling through his country Is unsafe; the mails are often robbed. This system cannot long be tolerated; and the Bombay Government, as the paramount Sovereign, must soon look to the propriety of having a proper police established In Guzeraf. It is said that. In consequence of the conquest of I,a me., the iinvertniieiit. of India feels itself strouir enomrb to diminish the native urmies, via., of Bengal by -Ju.uoo men. and of Madras and Bombay by 5,000 each. This reduction is to be effected by ((topping all recruiting until the native regiments are reduced from 1,000 to H00 men each. The Government of ludia has ordered the completion of the Gauge* Canal, on which only 90.0001. a year used to be bestowed. Henceforth for four years 950.0001. will be expended, by whieb means it is expected that within a few years S.000.000 of acres will be rendered productive. There is another canal parallel to the Indus, which l can be opened from the Sutlej. and which will fertilize other neglected districts. This canal was stopped by the government of the Ameers, and can be opeued with great advantage, aud at a very small expense. The new Governor of Bomfiuy, Mr. G. R. Clerk, had arrived there on the 93d of January, and assumed the reins of government. His first acts appear to give universal satisfaction. His chief attention must be directed to the tinauces of that Presidency, which are very much contracted by the strange system of taxation practised by the hon. couipuny. which compels the growers and exporters of the two staple products,vix., cotton and opium, to puy enormous rates ; us if there had been no reduction in the value in the Cliiua markets. The disturbances amougst the Goomsoors iu the Khoond are stated to be nearly put down. They were caused by some wild fauatics, who imagined themselves called upon to assert their rights to uphold human sacrifices as a mode of gaining favor of the Deity. There aro uo later advices from China. Markets. Lomoon Mowkv Makki.t, Thursday Nioht, March 4. ?There has been an unusual flatness in all the markets for public securities during the day, and less business has been transacted than for a long time. The prices, however, have not undergone any material chaugc. c onsols opened at 90X to % for tne Account, and 901* to '( for Money; and, after a slight fluctuation, a sale having been made at 90',. they closed at the same prices.

The payment of tho first instalment of the new loan, 1 which must be all completed to-morrow, has not produc- | ed as yet any difference in the Money market. Money i could be obtained to-day for all ordinary purposes ou ; terms quite as easy as at any time of lato. The bill bro- 1 kers are giving 3?^ per cent for money at call, and are said to be amply supplied at that rate. Tho Joint-Stock Banks also appear to be full of money, and good bills are j readily taken at hank rates. This has been another day of extremely little business | lu the Share market, but without any cnange of prices . worthy of notice. The only stock which has improved I has been the shares of the Newcastle and Berwick, in consequence, it is said, of some rumor of an arrange- | mout being likely to be completed with the Newcastle j and Darlington. They wore done to-day at 15 premium. I Otherwise the market was quite void or any interest.

The Society of British Musiciaus'recently gave a concert for the relief of the Irish. in which seventy instrumental performers took part. The orchestra was led by Mr. Thirl wall and conducted by Mr. Sterndale Bennett, The singers were the Misses Williums and Lockey, Messrs. Brahum. Burdiui. Lockey. and Williams. The veteran Braliain sang with a tire and energy that recalled his best days to such of ills auditors as were old enough to remember the greatest of Knglish vocalists in his prime; and a melodious and cleverly instrumented serenade, by ( liarles Horalcv, sung with grcnt expression by Mr. Lockey, were too principal features, and obtained tho most marked approval. The room was not crowded, but it was sufficiently well attended to insure a respectable offering from the Society of British Musicians to their distressed brethren of the sister isle. The celebrated baritone, Signor Collctti. made his first appearance for many years, rccontly, at Her Majesty's Theatre. The Signor appeared in the character of Nino, and achieved a decided success. Jenny Lind was expected to appear at Her Majesty's Theatre in Loudon, about the end of March. Mons. Julicu gavo a grand concert at Northampton recently. A new bnllct, called 'Spanish Gallantries.' was brought out at the Drury Lane theatre. It is decorated with some handsome scenery and some effective dances, particularly a carhoitchu, by Mademoiselle Badornu. Tile Liverpool Mercury states that Mademoiselle Lola ' Mon ten, who has left so inntiv loveniri at Berlin. Dresden sud Paris, and who enjoys here an exalted protection which creates some scandal, gave rise to it disturbance at Munich which required the interference of the police. At about noon, the handsome Spaniard was walking in the St. Louis street, followed by an enormous bull-dog; the animal barked at the horses' of a brewer's car, which was standing before a public house. The horses were frightened, and made some movements which excited the dog's rage ; ho rushed at one of the horses and soverely bit him. This amused Mademoiselle Lola, but did uot suit the carman, who desired her to take her dog away rather angrily, observing that nobody ought to be per mil lea to waix in l lie Bavarian capital with no ferocious a companion. Mademoiselle Lola, either not undoratanting the carman'* word*, or rather understanding them too well, (for ahc in said to apeak German easily enough.) struck the carman with her umbrella in such a style as to cut his face, and made the blood flow from it copiously: A large number of bystanders sided with the carman, abused Mademoiselle Lola, and gradually grew so exasperated that, deeming her position u perilous one, she threw herself into a chemist's shop, and shut the door so very violently thut a number of panes of glass were shattered. The crowd gathered in front, of the druggist's and loudly demanded that she should be delivered up. As the summons was not obeyed, the remaining pants were promptly demolished. Mademoiselle Lola whs enabled to return home at night, but this morning, as early as dawn, another large crowd gathered under her windows, and bogau demolishing them us promptly as the apothecary's had been. The police succeeded In dispersing tliu mob ; but, us other gatherings were continue ally taking place, it has been found necessary to station a party of geudariues near her residence, and u sentinel at her door. It is expected that Mademoiselle Lola Monies will shortly have to answer before a Tribunal of Correction for the use she has thus made of her umbrella. City Intelligence.

Klectioneerino?The Fourth Ward?A Hot Contest?Fire Alarm.?The loeofoeos are determined to carry on a hot struggle in tills ward amongst the rival sections of the party, anil already the belligerents have manifested every disposition to kick up n row, and disturb the tranquility of the neighborhood. The " Purserito'' section have resorted to the indecent trick of burning down the bauuers of the " Fitxgernldites," as several of them were burned yesterday morning in different streets in the ward, und the houses stood in danger of taking fire. This is a dangerous and low mode of contesting au election, and we question if it inay not turn out an indictable affair. Should any nractiseil inceudiarv belong to either SOCtlou ot the democratic party in the 4th ward, he should not be permitted to endanger the' lives and properties of the ^ citizens, by bring up the banners and placards, that according to established usage" nrc allowed to hang across the streets.
