In consequence of the prevalence of what is termed the ship fever, among the nowly ar1 irmnia wlin ur??fliiilv hinnrr I> t,#1 ...I nn our wharves, the minds of the public in general have become much excited, through a fear that this fever may become epidemic, and attuck all indiscriminately. To such an extent has this fear prevails 1 in some parts of the country in the vicinity of our city, that it has led to the commission of the most lawless and violent acts. From what we cun learn from the various well informed and intelligent medical men, whose opinion we have asked on the subject, we are persuaded that the fears which many have given way to, us to the infectious nature of this fever, are ungrounded. The ship fever is what is known as ordinary typhus, of a somewhat aggravated form. Typhus fever is almost always found wherever lurge bodies of persons are collected together, in.ill ventilated situations, and are insufficiently nourished and clothed. In such situations, fever is almost the necessary result; and when we udd to ull these causes the depressing influences of poverty?arriving in a strange land, the having left their native one, and their early associations behind for over, .it is not wonderful that these poor emigrants are peculiarly apt to become subjects for this disease. It isu disease, which before proper attention was paid to the due ventilation of prisons and gaols, used frequently to rage in these institutions, and defy all the efforts of medicine to arrest its progress, until the places were thoroughly cleansed and ventilated, and the unhappy inmates better attended to. The ship, camp, gaol, or typhus fever (for they are all identical) can be generated then, wherever the condition of the locality is such as we have described; but all medical men, we believe, ugree in saying that it never becomes infectious or epidemic, that is to say, spread from street to street or house to house. If a healthy person takes up his abode in a house where there are many cases of this fever, and exposes himself continually to an atmosphere saturated with the exhalations from these patients, he would run much risk of being attacked by it; but there is no reason to suppose that the infection from it extends beyond the immediate vicinity of the patient, and we think that it may be safely laid down as a rule, that wherever due attention to * the ventilation of apartments is paid, there is no chance of typhus making its appearance. It is infectious only umong those who are all exposed to the same influences that generate it. Thus we hit. the nhvsiciuns who are in attendance on large numbers of such cases at our different hospitals, duily filling a sacrifice, to it. This is because they are continually exposed to the exhalations, and absolute contact with such numerous cases, but the health of the neighborhood of these hospitals is as good as ever, and we have no doubt that no inore fever prevails in such neighborhood now than at any other tinie, nor will there, unless the causes whieh lead to i lie [production of typhus become developed iniong them. One circumstance connected with this ship fever is worth recording, and that is, the untiring zeal with which the younger members of the profession give their time and care, and thus far, their lives in several instances, to such cases A II the snhnrdinnte situations in tile hospitals ire filled up by them immediately on their becoming vacant, and the most dangerous duties fulfilled by them without hesitation. These offices have no pecuniary emoluments attached to them; on the contrary, the privilege of entering on them is purchased only by the payment of a considerable fee; and this is sufficient prool that it is solely and truly a wish to sec practice, and benefit by it, that incites these young men tc assume such dangerous posts. Such self-sacrificing assiduity is worthy of a reward, and forrm a striking comment on the charges of apathy ignorance, and indifference, which certain smal but vociferous medical cliques have lately delighted to shower down on theirrising opponent! and future overthrowers?the rising generatior of physicians.

THE DEPARTURE OF THE OCEAN STEAMER WASHINGTON. Yesterday wu a proud day for New York, and a proud day for the United Stater, for it witnessed tho departure of the magnifloent iteamahip Washington, the pioneer of American ocean steamships, and the flneet eesel that ever trareraed the oceun. As might hare been expected, her departure created much interest, and woe witnessed by thousands of admiring spectators, who oongregated on the Battery, Castle Garden, the pleri. docks, and house-tops in her ricinity. lor the put pose of gClllOg a glftUCU Ik uot UBttuvnui iiiiivii, i>uu luii^miu' L?ting their friends and acquaintances on the triumph of American skill and enterprise in a new department of Industry, that has hitherto been monopolise I by our transatlantic friends. The departure of the Washington was looked upon in another light, too. it was looked upon as the removal of the slur on He enterprising character of our people, which certainly I luted us, for having submitted so long to the people of a foreign country reaping tho rewards of tho greatest discovery of m idem times, when we might as well have shared in them years since, as now. Three o'clock was the hour appointed for her sailing, but she did not start until four. At that hour a gun was discharged; her pilot. Mr Maginn, and her commander, Captain Hewitt, took their proper places, the engine bell was rung, and this magnificent vessel, which in time of peace will serve the purposes of peace, by uniting the two worlds by the ties of commereo and interest, and in time of war will serve tho purposes of war, by carrying death and destruction to the enemies of our republic, glidod gracefully and steadily a short distance up the North River. When sho had reached about half a mile, the faithful rudder Induced her to turn the figure of the Immortal Washington towards the sea; and before tho admiration she had oxcited had been half expressed, she was half of the distanoe to Staten Island, 'ller speed, however, was not near as great as it was on her trial trip, because it was unnecessary to apply more than one third of her power, as it wua neap tide, and the pilot did not wish to take hur over the bar until about seven o'clock. Sho drew t*rcnty-ono and a half feet forward, and twenty feet abaft,, which, together with a " list" to port, both of which are no doubt remedied by this time, impeded her progress. The uniform motion of her machinery was the theme of all who witnessed it, and also the trifling commotion her large paddles caused in the water. When she neared staten island una was seen 10 great advantage. Her immense and well defined hull, and her neat and tapering masts, surmounted with the Bremen and Amerioan flags, looked the beau ideal of what a steamship should be, and what she is. When oppotite the light house on Staten Island, she stopped,In order to allow the steamship John Marshall, which was chartered by the Ocean Steam Navigation Co., to go alongside and receive the friends of the passengers who were desirous of accompanying them down the bay. The two vessels beiug mado fast to each other about ono hundred gentlemen left the Washington and got on board of the John Marshall. As soon as the vessels were parted, the passengers of the Marshall gave three loud cheers, accompanied by waving of bats and kerchiefs?the Washington fired a gun in reply, and proceeded towards Sandy Hook. Among those who left her. we observed Messrs. Stiilman, Alltn It Co., of the Novelty Works, the build urs vi me wasnington s engines; c.apt. uerry. 01 ui steamship Southerner: Mr. Anderson, the secretary ol the company; Robert H. Morris, post mast'r of New York; Captain Browned, the government at; rat, under whose superintendence the Washington was budt, and who was the first American officer that boarded a British frigate; Mr. Mills, the president ofthe company, and several other gentlemen who are wed known in this community. It was supposed that the John Marshall would then return to the city, but she kept In company with the Washington for a further distance of several miles?the passengers on board of each vessel giving frequent oheers, and the bells of each vessel tolling. This .was the most interesting part of the trip. The passengers of the Washington were seeu on every elevated place, holding their kerchiefs and hats aloft to attract the attention of their friends on board the John Marshal; and on board the latter the. engine builders, Messrs. Stillman Allen &. Co., Mr. Mills, Captain Brownell, the carpenter) and other mechanics who took part in constructing th< Washington?were observed sdently, but eagerly, scan ning the work of their hands, and admiring its gracefu proportionate she sped on her way towards the broad At lnutie. uneers were again given ana excnaugeu, 1111 uevr steamer Magdalene was observed a lew miles ahead outtlng across to meet the Washington, and escbangi congratulations and farewells. Meantime, those 01 1 board the John Marshall hailed the ship Atlas, boum ' to Vera Cruz, with the new regiment of marines, an< gave the brave fellows three lusty cheers, which wer 9 duly answered by them, as well as by those on the Wash , ington. | At live o'clock, P.

The two moat magni flcent steam palaces whic ever graced the waters of a ny bay or river In the worldtlie Oregon and the Vand erbilt?had a severe contei yesterday for the champion ship. The aeene of the rac was the Hudson river, from the Battery to Sing Sin| and back, a distance of sevwnty-eight miles, for a puri of one thousand dollars asitle. The Oregon baa been long known to the travellin coramuulky as one of the fastest boats in our water She is ywned l|y George Law, Esq . commanded by Cap Seth Thayer, and run#^irly between this city an Stonbigton, on the Boston route. T'ue Cornelius Vanderbilt is a now boat, and there fqr. e requires an introduction to the public. She wi I V .... - ?>1? VanrlapWlL . and h#P IMe c.uui oy i.ori.fn"" ? ?t ? hu never be fori* been tented. She Is a magnlflcer structure, and tT^ect* much credit upon all ei gaged in her construction. Mr. Vanderbilt'n ol 1 ject in racing with the Oregon, was to gaug the speed'of hi* boat previous to delivering her to tto ! party who had previous!/ purohaetid her upon certai I condition*, one of which was that her *pe?d ehould t ' equal to anything afloat. A fter the content yentcrda; he expressed himself satisfied, *""1 took the iwiat. Tt 1 model of thu Vanderbilt differ* from all other*, and It pronounced, by old and experh Steed nhlpmanlere, peci liarly adapted to rough navigation ' The condition* of the snle of t ^ boat wore a* to low*:? 1st. To be equal in speed to anything afloat. 3d. To be the strongest or most sub. "t*utlal boat < her tonnage ever built in the port of New Vofh I M. Tow M?M u*rim*4 Um 1 Ialand Seund Tlie dellrery and acceptance of tha boat abowa that the terma U*?e been complied with thk rack. A law minute* before elereu o'clock, tha Van- : derbilt appeared off the Battery, when the Oregon I left her berth, passed around her larboard side, and at , four minutes before eleven o'clock, every thing being ready, the signal was given for a start, ! and both boats appeared to spring from their j positions The race was contested with so much spirit ou both sides, that the boats kept side and side for thirty-three miles, neither one gaiuiug a foot on the other. At flrst the Vanderbilt gained on tbe Oregon, the former making twenty-one revolutions, uud the latter nineteen and a half revolutions. The Oregon increased hor revolutions to twenty-one and twenty-two revolutions, when she galued on the Vanderbilt, and arrived ,at the stake boat, opposite Sing Sing, half a length ahead, in one hour and thirty-five minutes from the Battery, thirty-nine miles. When passing the Vanderbilt, she was run Into by that boat, and her wheel house much damaged. Upon turning the stake boat at Sing Sing, the engineer of the Vanderbilt made a mistake in answering the bell from tbe wheel house, and instead of reducing tbe speed so as to allow the boat to turn quioker, stopped the engine entirely, which retarded her progress very materially. The Oregon had the start on tbe return, and maintained it throughout the raoe. ooming in about four hundred yards ahead. When off Harlem, her supply of coal gave out, and they were obliged to burn up berths, settees, obairs, doors.and every thing else of a combustible nature they oould gut their hands on. Several Inches of steam were lost by this but she was so far in advance of the Vanderbilt that the latter could not recover. On the return both boats were pushed to tbo utmost. Each made twenty-two revolutions, and everything the boilers would bear was put on. The distance from the Battery to the stake boat opposite Sing Sing and back to the starting point, was seventy-eight miles, and tho Oregon run It in three hours and fifteen minutes, against the ti<lo one way and with it the other, which is equal to slack water, being an average speed of twenty-four miles per hour, or an average of a mile in two minutes and a half When we take into consideration the fact of turning a stake boat the timo made is wonderful. The Oregon and the Cornelius Vanderbilt, are, without doubt, the fastest running steamers in the world. Thov have by this raoo established their reputation for speed; and they may hereafter take their time, and can uflord to let Hny boat pass them when on their regular routos. If the Bay State can make more than twenty-four miles an hour, she can keep up that *'whip," but until she docs do that distance, the Oregon is entitled to It. It Is the champion's pennant, and the Oregon must carry it. THE YACHT REGATTA. The Annual Regatta of the New York Yacht Club, which woe looked for yesterday, was postponed, owing to the thick weather and the want of a breeze, until 10 o'clock this morning. The squadron were at anchor of! the Elyslan Fields, Hoboken, yesterday afternoon, apparently In readiness for a start; conspicuous among the number was Maria, the yacht of the commodore of the squadron, John C. Stevens, Esq. The steamboat Eureka is advertised to accompany the fleet down the bay, with the members of the club and their ladies. The steamer will leave Barclay street pier at 9 A. M. ; and we prophesy for these who witness the regatta, us line displays of soaraansbip and skill in nautical science as were eTer exhibited by amateur sailors. We advise all who can securo a passage In the Eureka, to follow the Yacht Squadron. James II. I'erkins, Esq., is here, we understand, with the Coquette. On Monday next, at 10 o'clock, a match for $500 aside, will come oil between the yachts Cornelia and the Cygnet. FIRST TRIP OF THE IRON STEAMER MAGHAI.ENA. A large party of gentlemen, by invitation of Messrs. Everett fc Battelle. were yesterday entertained in a very hospitable .manner on board this steamer. She left Whitehall punctually at the hour appointed (half past one o'clock) taking a cirouit around Governors Island, up through the Host River, made a few turns in the bay, and then proceeded outsido Sandy Hook, where she was met by the Washington. The Magdalena is a small vessel of '240 tons, with two engines of about 50 horse power each. The hull, which is built entirely of iron, was not constructed with a view to obtain more than an ordinary degree of speed, carrying.with a ligtit draft, being the main object. In her performance, however, yea terday, the expectation* of her buildura were more than ' realized, ahe having made something over thirteen milrt with perfect ease. The Magdalena was built by Messrs Mott 8c Avres, iron worker* of this city, for a compunj I recently chartered in New Grenada, and is intended t( ply betwe.-n Santa Martha. Bogota and Honda, on the Magdalena river. Tho length of this vascl is K0 feet 25 f. et beam, and about six feet hold. The eugiues arc ' on the high pressure system, with It) inch cylenders? S six foot stroke?wheels 25 feet in diameter. She is tern j porarUy rigged with two masts, carrying foresail, top. ^ sail and topgallant. The second vessel called tho Santi Martha, of similar capacities, for the company, will bt launched at tho same place in about three week*.

The Southerner has also brought a great many vegetable luxuries from the southern gardens; sucl as new potatoes, string beans, cucumbers, &.C.; am said luxuries can be had in quantities to suit purchasers at Broas & Co's, 73 Vesey street.

THE DEPARTURE OF THE ?U$W STEAMER ADMIRAL Among the many interesting objects in the bay, wa the new and beautiful steamer Admiral, whieh mado beautiful sweep around the point of the Island, at abou three o'clock, and after displaying her movement to th thousands of spectators on the Battery, started oiT o: her way to Boston, to take her place in the line for whic v she is intended, on the route to Eastport and St. Johi She will supply the place of the steamboat Portland Even surrounded by the noble vessels that attracted such universal attention, the Admiral presented a fin Appearance, and will no doubt fulfil the expectations ( her owners.

Farmers1 Cll'a, Tuesday, June 1.?This being a regular day for the despatch of the general business of the Club, as well as the particular subject of the occasion, (u Dairy Husbandry,") the members and officers assembled at the usual place, Judge Van Wyck in the Chair, when the miscellaneous business was opened by the reading of an extract from a work entitled " Lindley's Vegetable Kingdom." as published in F-ugland, in 1810, and descriptive of the perfections of Spanish wool aud Lho introduction of the breed into Spain.coeval with the time f Strabo, when tbe patriarchal father of the breed wan valued at $180,000, and froui whence has descended the illustrious race that has now spread it* ramifying branches over all Europe. An article was presented and read to the Club by Mr. Q Smith, on the antiquity and dimen iotui of the locust tree, and cusina of the South Aiuericati forest, the genealogy of which was traced to the period of Homer and Pythagoras, and of such u monstrous size, that fifteen Indians, with outstretched urinB. in Brazil, could not embrace one of them. On the bottom they are described as measuring 84 feet in circumference, and fid feet where the boles became cylindrical?they were eccovsl with Hoiuer, and 332 years old in the days of Pythagoras. Professor Mapes technically explained his views on the process of making wine, and adduoed many scientific proofs of the fallibility of some prevalent theories that have rendered the manufacture of tliH grape into wiue in this country unequal to the material produced in others. from a probale misconception of the progress of ferinention. Mr. Smith differed bom all chemists on the subject of fermentation; he considered it the greatest mystery in oheinistry, but bis theory on electricity would, wheu developed to the world, oxplnin the whole In the mean time he entreated i'rofessor Mapes to take a note of his remarks, on tbe nature of {lie oxygen that converts tbe alcohol into sugar, and some other points not exactly in consonance with the Prolpssor's theory on the doctlne of fermentation. A communication was read from Mr. Skinuer, of tbe office of the " Farmers' Library," on the subj?ct of glass pans for the use of dairies, ae practised successfully in Holstein, and requests the Club to offer a premium for the'bet manufacture of the article, 16 inches broad at the top, and id at the bottom. He also rcooiumended a premium to be offered for the best set of weights and measures, by which an exact and authentic ana'vsis of the corn crop, the shock and cob, especially. Oou.d be obtaiuuc ; and from the variation of produce that they should oe particulury applied to tbe south and oust. Alderman Hall sent in an article on the subject of the Isabella grape, by which it appears that a late traveller in France obtained cuttings of grapes, for England, of Mr. Audibot of l'onelle in the department of Bouches des Ilhonc. and amongst them, one was the Isabella, described as an Americau grape, black, with the flavor of the raspberry. Tbe writer considered it interesting to ascertain the result of the transplantutiou of the plant from America to France, aiT to its qualities, and whether a change of country hnH made a chuiige in any of them in color, &c. Tbe question could only be solved by sending cuttings to France, when tlio effect produced by transposition from tbe eastern to the western hemisphere could be ascertained. The sulject of ' Dairy llusbaudry" brought from Professor Mapes an opinion of the efficacy of a plate of ziuo in the bottom of the milk pan, au experiment which several acknowledged had been successfully adopted. Judge Van VVyck continued, with his usual felicity, his remarks uDnn the subject of the day, the necessity of cleanliness iu the apparatus .'or making butter, the feed of dairy cows, and the causes of toreign butter possessing a superiority over that article us manufactured In America, for export, Six ; at the termination of which, the club adjourned.
