iiiiBi New York, T??Uy, J?n? 8, 1847. MR. BBNIfKTTS LETTERS PROM EUROPE. Paris, 15th May, 1R47. Ttaa French Un? of Omn ?t*?nri,.Tlu Ministerial Affair?The Mcaaoti American Ailkifc The French steamers will at length begin their trips from Havre to New York on the Slat mat. I had a long interview with one of the company yesterday, and have learned their general views on this important enterprise. These trips will be continued during the summer, every fortnight; but I suppose some change will be made in the winter months, similar to that of the Liverpool boats. The French steamers have been very inuch modified since they were built. Their horse power has been increased from 450 to 600 per *boat, and it is now calculated that they will cross the Atlantic as fast as the liritish line. The steamer which leaves Havre on the Slst, is expected to reach New York on the 13th or 14th of June, at least. They are splendid boats, with fine accommodations. The first boat has already 60 first class passengers engaged?some second class?and at least 200 or over of third class, who are principally substantial emigrants. Some difficulty is anticipated from the recent emigrant law passed by the New York Legislature?also, in reference to the tonnage duties. The French government have hitherto neglected their commercial relations with the United fitates. but I trust that both the General and State governments will moderate the difficulties, and remove every stone in the way of our commercial intercourse with France. We now, from this moment forward, begin a new era in our intercourse with France and the Continent, and I have 110 doubt but a few years will prove the advantages to both countries to an immeasurable extent The railroad from Paris to Havre is now travelled in a few hours?from six to eight hours. The constant intercourse between Paris and New York?the respective capitals of the old and new continents?may be set down at an average of 15 days. This will be all important in the mighty matters of fashion, I taste, literature, and folly, to say nothing of politics, religion, irreligion, Fourierism, trade, and finance. Since I have been in Paris, I have been making arrangements for all those matters in which the newspaper press is concerned, and I shall complete them before I leave. Hereafter, the three great capitols of the civilized world will be Paris, London, New York. In these cities alone, the press is great, powerful, tree, lnnuential, and leading in the van of intellect and civilization. In Puris and in London, I have studied these institutions with the greatest care and attention, and have attained, I believe, a knowledge of their rise, progress, and power, which few others hive reached or taken the trouble to seek. Gold and diamonds can only be reached by digging deep in the bowels of the earth?knowledge of society and institutions can only begot in the same way?digging down into the very bowels of society and humbug. In all other respects, the new enterprise of steamers from Havre to New York w ill have a great and growing importance. It must enlarge and increase the mutual trade of the two countries. France will probably be as much benefitted, if not more so, than the United States? for France, as compared to England and the United States, is only in the first stage of commercial enterprise and financial growth. Although the central house ?f the great confederacy of the Rothschilds is in Paris, yet the French, as a people and a nation, have showed far leas genius for commerce than the English or the Americans. Louis Philippe and the present government, huve endeavored to turn the attention of the French people towards their national interests, but thus far they have principally succeeded in giving a taint to the character of the Legislature?of the Government?of the Bourse?and of the higher classes generally. The fermentation haB begun, and in a few years a purer state of Bociety will come up. Apropos?the present Government is in a queer condition. A terrible opposition has been formed against Guizot. The whole effective newspaper press of Paris is now out in full cry against that great minister, save and except the Journal dts Debats. Every party and faction, in the Chambers and out of them, have combined in this campaign?and how he will bear up against the whole, seems to be the great problem of the day. No such powerful combination has appeared against the present Government, since the Hourbon dynasty was driven from the throne by the revolution of July. Even one of the most efficient ministerial organs, the Prate, has turned against the ministry This journal has a circulation of over 30,000 per day, and is conducted with a great deal of talent and efficiency. The charges of corruption brought against the present Government are awful. No one imputes any venality to Guizot?in fact, that amiable man is considered the only pure and honest statesman in France;, but the very system of Government?the management of the Chambers __t li m hrihou tli rrvti* n u ut n tr imnn t la ?? ti t*r? uu?-111 UI>UTT" ?"tt; * **- r^?- ? mode of the elections?the distribution of nearly 200,000 places and iiensions?are all beginning to come out and display their hideoes features to the French people. The most ominous symptom of the present dangerous condition of things, is the terrible combination among all the leading journals of Paris against the existing Government. The daily issues of the newspapers opposed to the Government, may he set down at nearly 120,000 sheets per day?those in favor of it, not probably over 15,000. These present fearful odds in such an inflammable capital as Paris We are in the midst of delicious May weather and the Chantiliiy races. The races are very much negleted. Indeed, the French, as I have already stated, have no taste or appreciation for horse racing. The public gardens for the summer season have just opened in Paris and its vicinity, and there the French, particularly of the middle and lower classes?the centre and gauche of Parisian society?all flock on the pleasant evenings. Maville, Chateau Kouge, Grande Chaumiere, Ranelagh, Ifc., &c., are all now open j and music and dancing, gambling and intriguing, drinking and eating creams, seem to be the principal enjoyment of the gay Parisians of the lower and middle ranks of life. The nobteste and the finanoiers are preparing to go to the country?to the Rhine, to England, or to the devil, for the latter reapectable personage receives his usual allowance every year from the fashionable world. Paris is now truly beautiful and delicious. The Tuilleries, the Champs Elysfos, the Boulevards, all the vicinity is green, and gay, and beautiful. The ladies, in their lovely spring attire, are beginning to make their appoaranse in the promenades. At this moment ths theatres are dull and neglected. All the great talant of the (lay is in.London, or going there Ths Span,ah troupe give their last representation to-night, but they have not created any sensation in Pans. American travellers are coming and going in considerable numbera. I understand Mr Catlin has received an order from Louis Philippe to paint twenty-five large paintings for Versailles, from the designa he submitted to him of the travels of La Salles on the Mississippi, St. Lawrence, and the grrat lakes of North America. These works will engage Catlin for the next year, ft speaks highly for the talent of the artist. Mr. Drayton, the young into the Conservatoire dt Afutique last year, u* creating conaiderable sensation by his powers and his talent, in the musical circles of the institution. He has improved wonderfully, and bids tair to be an honor to his ountry. The Judicial Election The Result In this City, die. The election for the choice of Judges, Surrogates, District Attorneys, Sic., &e., throughout this State, took place yesterday. It was an important election, but it passed oil' in a spiritless manner. The vote polled in this city was very small, and, had it not been for the very pretty little quarrel in the whig ranks relative to the candij-.? r? nf nisi rift Attorney. the num (Jill CB Iur ?ut WH.vv V* / > ber of votes cast would scarcely have exceeded those usually thrown for school commissioners; yet the election was the most important of any that has ever taken place in this State. The whole democratic ticket in this city and county is probably elected. Mr. White, the regular whig candidate for District Attorney, runs far ahead of Mr. lilunt, the irregular candidate. Mr. McKeon, the democratic candidate, however, is elected to that office. We annex returns, as far as received, up to our going to press. Our readers can investigate them. We make no comparative table of the number of votes cast at this election and of those cast previously for Governor or Mayor. Such a comparative statement would not be fair. The judicial vote must stand per ?t The Returns. New ftorlc City. Co CRT or ArrtAL*. ?? Wkigi. / Democrate. Whlttel- Jor- Rev- Qardi- Bron- Rug- Jrotvde. tty.

Jua delTua,und brought to this country in charge < the gallant f 'onimander Sands J We do nc know the intentions of the government reh tive to the disposal of these trophies; but w would propose the idea of placing them, or apai of them, in a battery, at the naval school, Annr polis. This school will be to the navy whs West Point is to the army, and from it mut spring all our future officers. It is an ndnnrabl institution, and the advantages arising from it t the service, and the country at large, will be in measurable.

The error must have been generally noticed, but there is so much interest attached to this subject, at this moment, that it is particularly necessary that every statement should be correct. The weather continues unusually favorable for the season. The prospects for abundant crops never were more"flattering, and if genial showers are vouchsafed to us by the Supreme Kuler of the universe, we shall be able to feed the hungry of all nations, and clothe the naked of every clime. In every section ot tin: country, the tears ot the farmers have given way to rejoicings; the recent rains have changed the face of nature.und every thing appears to be springing forward with the greatest rapidity, and in the most healthy state. Thousands, nay hundreds of thousands of acres of land have been brought into cultivation, and are now covered with luxuriant crops, which last year were uncleared, or running to commons. This additional land not only promises to yield abundantly, but that previously cultivated, is, from present appearances, in a fair, way of producing more than an average harvest. We shall see next fall what we can do in the way of raising breadstuff, upon an emergency. We shall be able to form soma idea of what a tremendous country this is, and what an extraordinary people we are. We shall astonish ourselves. _ Steamship Washington.?We learn that Captain Davis, of the bark Jane Oano, arrived yesterday? from Liverpool, on Wednesday afternoon, kaiuimn j uml tt nvlnfli.

This will be a very pleasing fact to those who huve plumped her ashore at Nantucket. Theatrical. Pass Theatre?Italian Opera.?It will be peroeired on reference to the bills of the day, that the Italian Opera Company, from Havana, seventy-threo In number, will commence an engagement of twelve nights, on to-morrow evening, at the above fashionable tbeatro; which oocasion will be performed, for the first time in this city, the popular opera of the " Two Foscari." Fame speaks highly of the company, and its immense Strength, together with the acknowledged talents of the performers, will draw crowded houses, nightly, to hear thie highly talented company, among whom arc 8igs. Louis Batalinl. Natale Perelli, and others of high qualifications in their profession. The Park will be crowded to excess to-morrow evening Bowebv Theatre.?The friends and admirers of that popular actor, Mr. Addis, will be gratified to be present on the occasion of his benefit ; and on reference to the highly attractive bill which he has put forward, cannot but recognise a combination of high and varied talents, who have gained so eminent a position upon the boards of this truly popular theatre. This evening the comedy of "Money" will be revived, on which occasion Miss C. Wemyss will perform the part of Clara; and Mr. De Bar, Sir Frederiok Blount. Mies Louisa Weils will appear in one of her most popular dances. "A Queer Quest at a Wedding," and ''Putnam." will also be produced. This bill caunot fail to draw a "jam house."

The Viennoise children arc reengaged for six uights at ? ; the Walnut street theatre, Philadelphia. Musical. > Palmo's Om:ka Hocsc.?The benefit of Signor Barill, I the maestro of the Italian company, took place last night, 1 and went off very well?as well as was to be expected with ! insufficient choruses and no music hand on the stage. which was discouraging to the players and singers. The r amateurs of the first season seem to have d,.?erUd that i theatre; perhaps it would be more true to say, that they have already left the city nud gone to hear lite feathered : nightingales of the woods, instead of the Italians. As ' we have said, the opera of " Semlramlde" went of as well as possible. Barill, Benedetti, Pico, and Beneventauo. did their best. But we must not forget to mention the dno sung by Hignorina Barill and Benedetti. It was sc' lected from the opera " Corrado di Monserrato," composed by the Maestro Barill. That piece of innate was received by the audience with a great deal of enthusiasm; it is a very sweet thing. The adagio is quite original accompaniment, full of science of contrrpoinl, and the finalr la certainly one of the most harmonious melodies we have ever heard We understand that the Maestro Barili is to have a better libretto written upon his music, In order to have his opera performed next season. May it be so. On Wednesday evening the orohestra takes a benefit, and on Thursday the Signor Palmo, is to have I the receipts of the house, as a reward for his uufortu1 nate enterprise. We hope he will have a bumper. Vattshall OARor.vs.?Campbell's Ktbiopian Serena| dera will appear here this evening, on which occasion a highly attractive bill will be presented, embracing some of the most popular Negro melodies and pieces. The | humorous performance of these minstrels has already secured them a high popularity. Their stvle of singing, and rich mimiokry, cannot fail to secure them a bumper | house.

With the exception of the scene of the last great conflaj grntlon (July 10th. 1846) the erection of buildings last , year was more limited than the preceding one.and those O were principally in the upper or thinly populated wards , of the city; whereas, during the present season, elegant ' and substantial stores mid dwelling houses are not only n going up in rapid succession in every avenue leading from jf the city, as well as cross streets, for several miles, but in the old and thickly inhabited wards, old wooden build" ings, Kive Point ehanties, and other rookeries, which I' have long been the abode of thieves, prostitutes, and other depraved characters, are daily being demolished, and giving place to handsome, three, four, and five story rt i buildings, embracing all tho improvements of the day.

At a fair estimate there were six thousand persons present, the majority of them brothers of the order, with their wives. :e daughters, or sisters. The rich regalia of the brothers, ' , and the sparkling eyes of the ladies, added much to tho brilliancy of the occasion af The exercises were commenced by tho celebrated cornet brass band playing an overture ; after which an original and beautiful ode. csmposed by Mr. J.

Hector was as near perfection as possible, and it was the general impression th'it if he succeeded in breaking the beats, the race would be his. fr'insT Heat.?There were a few failures before n successful start was made. They got off very evenly, and kept their heads together round the turn; but just as they reached the top of the ascending ground. Hector broke, and fell off thirty yards. The mure passed the auarter pole with all of that space between herself aud lector, in 40 seconds. The horse, as soon as lie recovered, was hurried to make up the gap, and it was sup- . nosed by many of the interested, too hastily, for he broke a second time beforo be reached the half mile pole. Lady Suffolk passed the half in 1:18, at least forty yards in advance of the horse, notwithstanding he had been again rallied and forced by his rider; and from this place to the turn on the stretch, be made up his losses, and was at the heels of the mare as she swung round ou the home stretch. Krom that place to the score, both of the horses went very steadily, but the Lady paseed the Judges' stand in '4:41, about three lengths in front of Hector The rider af the horse again made an effort to head the Lady, and at the quarter took sides j with her. This point was reached in 40 seconds. From I here to the half mile pole they wsre aide and side, and were going very rapidly; time, 1:17. The Lady then drew out from Hector about a length, and it was a pleasure to witness the steady manner in which she was performing her work. She had not thus far mot with the lightest accident?no break?not even a skip. Not so. however, with the horse; he broke several times, each of which threw him back a considerable distance, particularly the break at the lower end of the track, before reaching thelthree-quarterpole. As soon as he reoovered, be was again hurried to his utmost speed up the stretch; but the mare was Ave or six lengths ahead of him when he reached the soore. The time of this mile, for the mare was 3:34, and of the two miles 6:15. The mare was kept at work, dashing along apparent!v Vltb the Intention of making the gap too much for the home to close up.

There is little of importance by her. General Scott is reported still at Jalapa. but as to what he or Santa Anna, or any one else, is doing, we know not. Her Britannic Majesty's officers are well inclined to dress up and report any disaster that may befall the American arms, but when there is anything pleasant to Americans, to tell they are universally Ignorant of every thing. The news from Spain is now here considered as strongly indicative of great changes. Every one is anxious to know what becomes of Gen. Serrano, and what H.
