BFHNETT'S LETTERS FROM EUROPE. ^^B London, 2d June, 1847. H Homeward Bound_T Ip to the Continents Jenny Llod and Oie Bull. Here I am in London again, on our way home. On our journey from Paris to London, which we travelled by the way of Havre and Southampton, *e met the news from the United States, brought by the last steamer, giving an account of the victory overj the Mexicans at Cerro Gordo. This continual succession of extraordinary und brilliant victories, only deepens and widens the impression, whiah I have seen the Mexican campaign make in every quarter of Europe. Every ^^B statesman and politician is more und more astou^B ished. The press is almost silenced- Men's m!.j. k.?;. .. .nu-iirrl^ the ('nited States. I expecting a new turn ofaflairsin the world. The remarkable battles, the long marches of thousands of miles?the concentration of troops by sea and land?the energy, the genius, the science, the kill, and the military enthusiusm of the American people, combined with their commerce, manufactures, literature, and intellect, have completely astounded all Europe. In a season of peace, these events have startled the old world out of a dream. Every thing is changing, and a few years will place our glorious western republic in the van of the civilized world. I am now on my way to the manufacturing districts of England, land will soon return, so as to be ret ly to embark lor New York ahout the be ginning of July Mrs. B. is now with me, but will remain in Europe for several months, travel again over Germany and other countries, and resume her correspondence. She may perchance take a voyage up the Baltic as far as St. Petersburgh, visiting Stockholm, Copenhagen, nnd other famous places by the way. From St. Petersburgh she may cross Centrnl Russia, and through there to the Black Sea, up to Constantinople, and round, by Greece and Italy, to France and England. All over Europe, it is perfectly safe, and quite comfortable for ladies to travel attended by their servants only. In Italy, you can find even young unmarried ladies from the United States, travelling in perfect comfort and ease, and only attended by their couriers and maids. These couriers, as they are called, are a V#I*V llspflll (>1hRK nf trilVHlllnnr onrvanta asrV*^ generally speak all the modern languages. If Mrs. B. should first visit the German and Saxon watering places, she will give an account of all these curious resorts. I must not forget to mention that we went to see Jenny Lind last evening, at the Italian Opera. She sung in the opera of la Fille ilu Regiment.?' Jenny Lind is a wonderful curiosity in her liue, but she is not greater than what Malibran or Grisi were. Grisi is, of course, now faded. Jenny Lind has a wonderful resemblance in her looks and genius to Ole Bull. 1 would almost take her for his sister. She is not pretty?but extremely interesting, almost to fascination. She has a good figure, a very fine eye?almost an astonishing eye?and seems muscular and robust in her movements. Good sense, energy, concentration, enthusiasm predominate in her style.? She has not the exaggerated and classic gesticulation of the French or Italians?but is rather awkward in her ordinary gestures?particularly in making a courtesy?but in her moments of enthusiasm and high feeling, all those guueherits disappear. Ole Bull, who is her countryman, ha?similar traits of character.

However, the opera goers were waiting for the visit of Mr. Polk, for whom the box No. 8. fitted up with the American Hags aod eagles, had been nserved; but. detained elsewhere, it appears the President of the United Stat-s was not able to cune to the theatre This disappointment was very palDful to the singers, ana principally to Tedesco. who. had reserved her most charming notes, wishing to bewitch, if possible, the t hief Magistrate of our great nation. The opera of ?? Hernani ' was sung by her, Vita, l'erelli, and Novelli. with a perfect rnttmhle The finale of the third act was again encored, as usual; and we must ssy once more, that this piece of music is the most admirable thing we have ever heard. Tedesco is decidedlv great, very great in the part which she sings in it ; sue was received with a rapture of applause.? The whole opera, in short, was beautifully executed.? But now we have to mention a very pretty song?we mean "La Colusa. " There is a peculiar cachet of the Spanish land, which will bo understood and appreciated I every where. " La Colusa" (a proper name of a Murfttline) is a grisette who sings, smokes, and addresses herself freel) to the young men passing by in the Prado ? " Why do you look at me ? What do you wantLa Colasa has i>o love fur you, you follow me in vain ; the house (meaning her heart) is not to be let; a tenant is inside. Yon bad better pass your way and leave me lone.'* Such ara, in few words, the signification of that sweet Spanish ballad of three verses, whose music is uu andante half sung, half spoken. Tedesco had a lovely costume of amanola. and she gave to her infiexioos, suuy nr spoken, the most bewitching expression At each , verse, she waa rewarded with a fragrant bouquet, and | obliged to repeat the piece, which -he did with her en | chanting ordinary grace We hope that " La Colaea1' | | wui oe Boon repeat, a. lor it is i>y its.ii a small play. ?uintrably acted by Tedeaco On .vtonday evening, by g*u ral request, the grand opera of " 8aHo" by Maestro facial, Is to to he repeated.

On Tuesday evening Mr. Neafle will make bis last appearance, and take his farewell benefit. Since Mr. Neafle has been connectd with the , Bowery, he has earned for himself a reputation of which be may well be proud. There is not a persen who Is in the habit of frequenting that theatre, that will not regret his leaving it.

VISIT TO BROOKLYN, SCENES AND INCIDENTS. ?r , die., 4(r. Notwithstanding the severe exertions of the city's guest on the day of his arrival, and the consequent fatigue, Saturday morning found the F'rrsident up and dressed at an early hour. At six A. M he was waited upon by Mayor Brady and A dernian i'urdy in whose oompany Mr. Polk engaged in a morning stroll through the lower portions of this vast metropolis, incog. After visiting the Fulton and Washington markets, and expressing his unqualified delight at the immense and neatly ordered details of these mammoth magazines, from whence so manv thousands re daily fed, the President accompanied the Mayor to hi* residence for breakfast Thence, after a short interval ipent In social intercourse with the family of the Mayor, and an introduction to several ladies aod gentlemen, Mr. Polk returned to his rooms at the Astor, apparently much gratified with his drive through the city. Probably the President experienced more real satisfaction in this unostentatious ride than even during the triumphal ceremonies of his entry to New York. It was a quiet survey of the extent and resources of this queen city ot <Ve western world, and must have proved instructive and (-freshing. But this visit to the markets, Ike., although it was intended to be stric t>y private, could not be kept so entirely. The butch" s and market women soon ascertained who it was that wis thus quietly wandering about amid their stalls, and many lively demonstrations of regard were elicited. " Sure an' its Jemmy Polk exoiaimed a son of green Erin. " 1 must shake his hand and say, long life to the President 1" " I say, old horse familiarly queried a buxom dame, of Alderman Purdy, as she peered inquisitively over her well filled stall of vegetables. "Isn't that Young Hlokory ?" A sort of merry twinkle in the eye of the worthy exofficial was the only response. " Ah ! 1 know it is?that's Polk! Oive me your hand. Mr. President; I was a Jackson woman when Old Hickory first started, and I went it strong fer Young Hickory too!" The President very good humorcdly gratified her request, but the event, probably, hastened his departure from the market, as he wished to see and not be seen. During a brief stop at the Astor House, after his return, Mr. Tolk again received several members of the Committee of Arrangements, who had called for the purpose of conducting him to the City Hall, in order to give the citltens generally the pleasure of an I.VTROM'CTION TO THE fRESIDEST. Long before the appointed hour, the steps in front of the Hall, and staircases leading to the Governor's room on the Becond floor, were thronged by an eager crowd, among whom we noticed several ladies, and very many nMl.lran Th. ?V,? tl>. and bla special aids lor the day. Captains Wiley and Boudinot, with Assistant Capt. Horrigan,were early upon the spot, and forming in a double line, facing inward, with their staves horizontally extended, oponed an avenue from the Park up the steps of the Hall, through which his Excellency and suite might pass. At li> minutes past 10 o'clock, the President entered his carriage at the Astor, and, attended by Mayor Brady, with Aldermen Oliver and Purser, was driven rapidly around to the Park, entering it by the west gate.? Another carriage followed Immediately, containing members of the committee; and arriving opposite the main entrance, Mr. Polk accompanied by the before mentioned gentleman, lighted, and ascended to the Governor's Room, a spacious and beautiful apartment, looking out towards the south, the walls being decorated with the portraits of many of the Governors of the State and other distinguished men. together with those of all the mayors of our city. Here talcing his stand by the writing table of the immortal Washington, a most splendid yet simple piece of workmanship, the chief magistrate of nearly twenty millions of froemen commenced receiving (the people being introduced by his honor, the mayor) the usual tokens of regard and respect, which citizens of all classes and conditions, without regard to political or other creeds, ever feel a pleasure in paying to the first officer of the Republic.

Duriug this period hu shook hands with at least two thousand people ! . .Through the excellent arrangements of the polloe, only a limited number were admitted at once, coming in at one door and passing out at another, thus keeping up a continued current, with very little disorder or oonfuslon inside, although the press without the entrance, and upon the circular staircase leading to the reception hall, was tremendous. Each individual who entered, bore evidence of the scuffle and the rqueexe, which was, Indeed purely democratic?the gloved and scented exquisite being unceremoniously jammed into forcible and close contaot with the unwashed million,who, In their working clothes and shirt sleevos, were out In force. It was. however, a good humored contest, for the preoedency? not exactly the Presidency, though the rush was for the President,?and if toes were trod en. beavers smashed, or coats torn, nobody seemed inclined to grumble. The ceremony of introduction was generally exceedingly brief, Alderman Oliver, who for a portion of the tiuie did the honors, going through the presentation as a matter of business, with great rapidity It was a word aadashake; and frequently the shake came flrBt? the favored individual instantly passing on. to make room for the next customer. We noticed a vast difference in the manner of the salute, however; some of those introduced being eontent with a mere formal touch of the Presidential digits; while others, griping the whole nana, wouia give me arm a Hearty snaKe?in some instances, apparently, absolutely painful In passed the crowd, with an unceasing footfall, and mingled, also, with true republican simplicity?lawyers, divines, newsboys, M.

Little children likewise were there in profusion?the President universally extending to these embryo members of our population, the most marked courtesy and attention. Among the latter we noticed an Interesting pair of twins, of not more than five years of age, who were presented by their mother. Their names, by a singular coincidence, were Henry Polk Russell, and David Polk Russell. About II o'clock, the officers of the two volunteer regiments, which were raised nearly a year since In this city, but have not yet been called for, came in, two abreast, headed by Colonel Ming. They formed in open order, facing inwards, and through this avenue passed Mr. Polk, leaning upon the arm of Aid. Purser, giving hie hand to each individual. After these had retired, the consuls of various European governments, residing In New York, came forward, in court dresses, to pay their respects. They were received with marked respect, and withdrew, evidently much gratified with the interview. a/ iLa vr r -1 n.A Kijcni a hearty shake, and then mingled with hi* luile in rear of the table, among whom we noticed Attorney General Clifford. <'apt Levy; the District Attorney for New York, John MrKeon K.sq . and many other gentlemen of distinction.

Lieut Browni-11. agent for the new government steamers, also paid hla respects to President Polk. This gen. lleman was with Commodore Peiry on the Lakes, during the last war. Among those who addressed a few short words to his Kzcelleucy, on presentation, was James O. King. Chairman of the Cham iter of f'omraeroe, who, in behalf o ' ' ->11.1 I I the ? ham bar. expreeted the gratlflontion whioh that body felt in being enabled to welooma the President of the United SUtM, In the Empire city Mr Polk replied briefly, but neatly. The entire *cene waa one of much Interact, and waa oontinued until fifteen minute* of 11 o'clock, when the doors were closed, to the disappointment of thousands, who could not gain admission, the time of the Preeident not being longer at his control, arrangements having been made to receive him in Brooklyn, at noon, Attended by the Mayor and Committee of Arrangements, with many otner gentlemen attached to his suite. James K. Polk, President of the United States, then retired from the Governor's Room of the City Hall, having for an hour and a half occupied a position in that apartment, which will seldom fall to the lot of mortality, and which, in all human probability, he will never again be permitted to enjoy He was immediately accompanied to his carriage, in the rear of the hall, and by the aid of a noble pair of chestnut steeds, swiftly borne down Broadway, towards the East river, a long train of coaches following in the rear So silently bad this last move been made that nunflred* not Initiated, were ransacking each room of the vast edifice, for half an hour after hie departure, for the purpose of finding the President. THE PRESIDENT'S VISIT TO THE CITY OF BROOKLYN AND THE NAVY YARD?A PEEP, EN ROUTE, AT THE WALL STREET BROKERS. Pursuant to arrangement our Chief Magistrate made a flying, or rather galloping, visit to Brooklyn, and the United States Navy Yard in that city, yesterday. The cortege left the City Kail at twelve o'clock, in the following order Carriage containing Justioe Matsell, chief of police, and bis aids. Captains Boudinott and Wiley, who headed the procession for the purposo of preparing the way for his Excellency, and keeping the streets clear of omnibuses, carts. 8tc. ice. Carriage containing his Excellenoy, the President, and the Brooklyn Committee of Arrangements. Three or four carriages containing the Common Council of New York. Several additional carriages containing Gen. Gaines. Prosper M. Wetmore. Ksq . the Attorney General of the United States. Mr Sykes, member of Congress, and many other invited guests All things being ready, the precession started down Broadway to Wall street, down Wall street to the Exchange. where he alighted, and proceeded to the large rotunda of that building, the beauty and magnificence of wbicn he remarked upon After remaining there a few minutes ho got in his carriage and proceeded to the Fulton ferry, where Mr. Polk was immediately recognized by the multitude who had aasembled to congratulate him, and who greeted with a number of loud and hearty cheers. The entbuslaslm of the people wae intense, and although Mr. Polk was evidently much fatigued by his exertions, and exhausted from the heat of the sun, yet he could not withstand the kindly greetings of his fellow citizens. He rose In his carriage with his bead uncovered, although the thermometer was as high as 90, and respectfully bowed his acknowledgments. As soon as the bustle and excitement had somewhat subsided, we looked around us to take observations, and heard the order given by the I 'aptaln of the Brooklyn Guards, to '* shoulder arms '' This done, that excellent troop, preceded by the Brooklyn brass band, formed a guard of honor, and escorted the President on board the Wvandank, the best boat on the line. Looking further we observed that our oltizens living in the neighborhood bad taken every pains to add to the interest or the occasion. Festoons of flags were gracefully hung from the shipping to the tops of the houses in <outh street. The Wyandank was decorated very tastefully. The retinue embarked without accident; the bell was rung, the signal was given?the engine was put in motion, andjour boat|headed for Brooklyn. Notwithstanding that every precaution was taken to avoid inoonvenienoe to the i'resident and suite, not to have the boat too much crowded, it was impossible to prevent a rush of anxious citizens from getting on board. Every person seemed anxious of getting a glance at Mr Polk. One would say?" There be is with the epaulettes and sword." "No it is not?he is not a general, is he?" " Nonsense, isn't he Commander-in-Chief of the Army?and can't he wear a sword and epaulettes it he chooses?" "Yes, but I know that's not him." "Which is the President?" "Ah, I told you so?that wasn't him?there he is?that tall elderly gentleman, with his hat off. Here ensued a rush to the point indioated. "Three cheers"?"Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah." Mr. Polk again rises and bows "Gentlemen, be calm, the weathor is hot"?"keep cool." We roach the shore?we are in the dock. The engineer's bell is rung?the paddles stop.

We are aware of the mighty responsibilities that rest on you, the trials and difficulties you have to encounterin the discharge of your official duties; and we most earnestly implore for you the assistance of that Divine Being who rules the destinies of nations, to guide and direct you in administering the affairs of this government, that great and lasting blessings may rest on this people, and your administration receive the approbation of the virtuous and good in all coming time.

HI* r.xreUanry, the ' Mayor, and several of th? committee. occupied a car- j I rlage, drawn by four white horaea, furnished by Harrison It Van Ranet. of Hester street ; there were besides eleven carriages, drawn each by two horaea. The cortege was ander the direction of the Chief of Police, aided by Captain Wiley, of the 1st, and Capt. Boudlnot, of the 3d ward. The train made a direct course for the distributing reservoir, at Kerty-Second street, where all alighted, and proceeded to view this magnificent part of the great Croton Aqueduct. A cup was procured from the keeper's room, and from it Mr. Polk drank a deep draught of the pure beverage. But little time was allowed for the Inspection, as a good day's work was.yet before us 80 off we started, and in a few minutes were at the Deaf and Dumb Asylum, where a warm reception was afforded, although the pupils could not give the hearty cheers that were bestowed by other assemblages. The mutes were assembled in the hall of the institution, and gave specimens of the facility with which they oonverse by signs. 8everal of the inmates of both sexes took part in this exercise One of the boys welcomed the President, who, he said, had left the toils of office at Washington like a bird escaping into the air. A little girl regretted that Mrs. Polk did not aocompany her husband. The Piesident was highly pleased with both of these children. The beautiful figure expressed by the lad, particularly, seemed to please blm. and he afterwards sought him out and had nn introduction to him. In fact, the honored guest expressed himself highly gratified with his rislt, and said, in reply to some remarks made by Mr. Poet, the Superintendent of the Institution, this exhibition gratified him more than all the pageantry which attended his visit to the Northern cities. But time ties, and so must we. We're off again for Nowlan's. And here we are. As a e drive up, three cheers, that make the hills ring again, greet our ears. The porch at Nowlan's is crowded with ladles and gentlemen, some I dressed in broadcloth and rustling silks, and some in homespun and factory muslin. Delicate palms, and hard labor worn hands, were shook by doxens, and both clowns and gentry, (if the distinction is admissible, lu our democratic times.) seemed equally delighted at having handled preeidential fingers. We must mention the mistake of an honest soul. who. with his dearie. I cam* "to see tbe President." He elbowed bis way I pretty well into tbe crowd, and at last saw a good look! log policeman with bis star at his breast. At flrst he gaxed with simple awe upon the distinguished individual betorw him, and then pushing his courage quite up to tbe necessary point, he said to the man with the star. "Mr. President, this is ray wife." The good natured policeman was inclined to nave a joke, but finally contented himself with saying, "I am not the President, my good man, but if you wish it, I'll introduoe you to our chief." But Johny Raw did not wait to know the chief. The roads were exceedingly dusty, and tbe whole party were of nearly a uniform brown when they alighted. A general and brushing of coats took place, and tbe gentlemen were once more enabled to distinguish each other. Mr. Polk went lnt a parlor, where for a few minutes mere he was engaged in reoeiving introductions, ibd it was then announced that the diningroom was ready lor the guorts; ahout one hundred of whom, preceded by the chief magistrates of our nation and our city, marohed in and took their seats. Tbe Mayor occupied the head of the table, and at his right sat tbe President, while on his left was seated Attorney General Clifford, and on either side of the table near those already mentioned, sat Kx-( lover nor Bouck, Gen. Gaines, Capt. McKeever of the navy yard, Prosper M. Wetmore, Ksq., Judge Ingraham, and members of the Common Council. At the other end of the table sat Morris Franklin, Ksq., supported by a most respectable company, but the distanoe and position prevented the distinguishment of faoes from one end of the table to the other, it would nfft be fair to pass over this matter without awarding a word of praise to Mr. Nowlan for the admirable manner in which he performed tbe duties which devolved upon him as caterer and host. Talk of a cold collation ! It were better to oall it a dinner,! or although tbe meats were oold, the vegetables were hot, and excellent at that. There were about thirty dishes in the first course, and the fixings which followed were got up aoROrdincr to th? most, drtnrnvail tusfo Winua n?i?. taken of to a moderate extent, and a good appetite bad been to all the result of their afternoon ride. Full justice was done to the bounties of the table. At six o'clock the Mayor announoed that, as we had yet to ride tour mileB before reaching the High Bridge, it was about time to rise; but he ooutd not consent to leave without proposing a sentiment. He gave? " The President of the United States." This was drank standing, and followed by three obeers. Mr. Folk then proposed: " The Ureat State of New York." This was also drank standing, and as time would not permit any further delay the company did not resume their seats,and were just about to take to their carriages, when a shower coming up caused a delay of some nfleeo minutes, which interval was again tilted by th* rrrruiony of intioductlons. The rain finally abating somewhat, we again . off. and were soon going at a lively rate over the delightful road from Harlem to the bridge. The shower had laid 1 the dust and brought out the fragrance of the fields and hedges ; truly a more delightful afternoon could not have been desired. As we approached the Leake and Watts Orphan House, we observed about an hundred of the children, boys, awaiting our approach, and as the President's carriage came up, they raised their tlnv voices in three cheers. The President halted and au. dressed a few words to them, their tutor replied in a sentence or two, and on we went again As we crossed the bridge at MoComb's dam, the fish, as if they would also pay their respects to the commander-in-chief of all the United States, actually jumped out of the water in considerable numbers. Oh ! for u rod and line, and a leisure afternoon ! As we asceuded the bill on the other side of tho dam, we passed under an arch beautifully formed of boughs of mulberry, with the f: ult upon the green branches It was a huppy idea, and made quite a feature in the trip into Westchester county. At half past six we arrived at the magnificent archi- | tectural specimen, the High Bridge, and all hands alighted. Mr. Coffin, the President of tho Croton Water Board, was present, and called the President's attention to the peculiar points, and matters of interest couaected with the work. The wuter was let on to the jet, and the fountain presented a beautiful appearance.? The sun bad now made its appearance again, and a splendid rainbow, perfectly detiued, was apparent, and added greatly to the display. It was a most happy coincident to the occasion. The ('resident was nigiily gratified with all he saw. After looking about for a quarter of au hour, we started oo our return trip? aud a charming time we had of it. The clouds "Cic uwn uiDpcitcu, nuu no wuo uuo nuuviiu^ ilUUl | l'he road was in soma places literally lined with | children, who brought flowers hs nu appropriate offering | to tire chief magistrate, bless their little smiling faces, it is refreshing coremember them. Would that they might never know the care that fur ows the brows of older ones. On we pass?it is growing late,and we have yet to call at the Institution tor the Blind. The incidents on the way were many and interesting, and we regret that we must omit them, and nome at once to the institution above mentioned. ..y Wlien we drove up to the gate of the Blind Asylum, on the Ninth avenue wn found an immense crowd awaiting us, although it was now almost j dark. Hurrahs, and cheers, oft repeated, were j sent up from hundreds of voices, male anil female, us j Mr Polk alighted and bowed himself through the throng to the building, where he was met by the superintendent, Mr. Chamberlain, and conducted by him into the chapel, the band of blind performers playing us he passed along "Hail Columbia." In the chupel, which was well tilled with spectators, a display was made of the urticles manufactured by tbe pupils of the institution Baskets, band boxes, bead purses, and a great variety of ingeniously wrought fancy articles. We were now in haste, heretoro, Mr. Chamberlain said: "My pupils I introduce to you the President of tbe United States.'' Then turning to the President he expressed the gratification which the visit .caused him to fcei, tic;'his remarks were very appropriate, and to them the President replied expressing the pleasure which he felt in being permitted to visit the institution, lie alluded to the acquuiutunceformed last Washington,with some of tbe pupils. The olyect of the institution whs, be said, a noble one, and recommended itself to every patriot, every philanthropist, every christian man. To the pupils, he addressed what words of cousolatiou suggested themselves to *his mind, and reminded them of Lhe gratitude which they owed to the trustees of their institution. One of the pupils. Miss Crosby, a blind girl, was then introduced, and recited the following verses, of her own composing ' A Welcome for the President* We welcome not a mouarch With a crown upon hie brow.

THE PRESIDENT'S INITIATION AS A MEMBER OF TlIK TAMMANY SOCIETY After the President's return from his afternoon excursion, and before he had swallowed the last mouthful of his supper, he was waited upon by a deputation from the Tammany Society, beaded by Elijah F. Purdy, Esq., who respectfully iinformed him that his presence was required within the precincts of Tammany Hall, and In the large room where members of the Tnmtnany 80 ciety are usually initiated. Although tired and wornout as ho was from the fatigue of the duy.Mr. Polk cheerfully assented, and proceeded across the Park to that time-honored edifice. There he was duly initiated as a member of Tammany Society or Columbian Order. We cannot, of course, speak of the ceremonies of initiation. beoause we were unfortunately not present; none but the members being allowed that privilege; but we were afterwards informed that the goat which is used by all societies on the occasion of initiations, was in excellent order,having been previously fed iully three quarts of oats per day for a mouth past; and that his excellency. Mr. Polk rode him with his usual self-possession, and was not scared in the least. Nor. as we were informed, did he find it necessary to use the large old-fashioneilcontinental spurs, which were affixed to his boots. bo much for the goat and for the initiation. Availing ourselves of an opening which was provided us, we marched into the large room in company with seversl gentlemen composing, as we were informed, th Young Men's Democratic Committee and the General Committee, where we discovered, arrayed on each side, thirteen banners with the arms and names of the original thirteen Stutes printed thereon in gold letters?each supported by a man in regalia, and with bis bat on.'1 Proceeding toward the place where the platform was situated, we. in common with the rest of the company, were directed to keep on our hats, which we accordingly did although we thought it a strange procedure, inasmuch as every person supposed that his Excellency was iu the room However, we soon discovered that Mr. Poik was not present, and we felt a little more at ease, particularly as the noisv proceeding of the democracy in ' l.ouuty Convention assembled,'' at the last charter election, were fresh in our ears. At the head of the room, and leaning against the wall, we observed a large Hag, bearing the following Inscription : ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ? ? Tammany Society, g g Washington the Father ? ? of his country, 1 or | o Columbian Order. 1 ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo which flag was surmounted by an old fashioned liberty cap. > (As soon as the company were stationed in the order allotted, we heard a buzz, and observed Elijah F. Purdy, Esq., leading from auother room his Excellency, Mr. Polk. When both bad arrived behind the platform, Mr. Polk was placed immediately in front of this banner. Mr. Purdy then said: Fellow cltisens, 1 have the honor to introduoe to you the President Of the United States. "Hats off, gentlemen," said some person,whose countenance we did not recollect, and every man's hat was doffed. James Conner, Esq : Gentlemen, I propose three cheers for James K. Polk, President of the United StateB. " Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah " Three more!" "Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah!" very lustily, and gTeat clapping. Mr Polk?I am extremely happy, fellow-citizens, to meet yo|u here to-night in Tammany Hall. THurrah, hurrah ] Vou are aware that I am making a visit of respect to the Northern States of the Union, and 1 need not say that I am exceedingly gratified with the reception I nave met with; but if it has been more gratifying in one place than in another, it has been in the Empire City of the Empire State. [Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah J After the fatigue 1 have uudergone to-day and yesterday. I feel unable to address you as I would wmu i iriui> you win dxcuhh me irom royiog more, and permit me to retire to my lodgings after the exertions i nave made The President then sat down for a moment. Cast. Rvnders.?Fellow citizens, I propose that we give three real old fashioned cheers for the President of the United States,such cheers as are heard in Tammany Hall and no where else,and such cheers as democrats only can give. Hurrah, Hurrah, Hurrah! The crowd was now so dense that the President cou'.d not make bis egress. Mr. Purdy?-Gentlemen, if there is any place ou God's earth that i can take liberties in, that place is Tammany Hall. [Hurrah J Will you excuse the President from speaking any more, and open a passage for him to go to bis hotel, and take some rest ? " Make way, make way !" and a passage was immediately made for him. The President, leaning on Mr. Purdy, then went out, amid great cheering. serenading the president. At about half-past eleven o'clock at night a procession of musicians, with instruments in their hands, was seen coming down Broadway. Stopping at the Astor IU use, directly under the room occupied by the President, it was surmised by tbo passers-by that tbey iutended to treat our President to a serenade; nor were they incorrect in supposing so. for after getting ready aud tuning their instruments, they discoursed most eloquent music until the clock of Trinity chimed twelve, when they ceased. We afterwards discovered that it was the Ovrman brass band which honored our illustrious guest in this way. Their selections comprised eevernl of our nutlonal airs, including, of course, llail Columbia, aud many overtures of the best musical authors. 1 he performances were listened to with great pleasure. scenes and incidents. New York Harbor, June 26,1847. To the Editor or the Herald:? As you doubtless concur in the sentiment " Honor to whom honor is due," I take the liberty to correct an error iu your paper of the 'Idth, into which you have inadvertently fallen. You suy. in detailing the proceedings of the reception of the President?" But what vessel is that which is so gaily decorated with a thousand flags, which is so beautifully moulded and rigged? Bang, bang! from this vessel too, which proves to be the English pleasure yacht.'' This was not so. The vessel referred to was no other than the I'. 8. revenue schooner Taney, under the ccminaud of Captain Ottinger, and the only vessel of that size decorated on that occasion with a " thousand flags " The I?. H schooner Ewing. Captain Vloore, also did effective execution for the reduced number of her crew; and it is but an act of justice to the gallant tars of those vessels, who evinoed a becoming pride on the occasion, to award to them thn full benefit of it. The English yacht more than anticipated the national etiquette by running our ensign to her fore, and saluting our chief magistrate with such hearty good-wid; and so well was It done, and in such perfect harmony with the other arrangements in the harbor, that Captain Ottinger could not refrain from a warm and emphatic exclamation of admiration.

The funds of the society are accumulating so rspldlv, that the worthy treasurer finds it extremely difficult to make proper investments, and has been compelled to take foreign stocks, much against his will. The society wish to invest all its capital, if possible, in this country.

It. appears by the last advices from Kngland, that one of the Barings. Lord Asbburton, who is well known throughout the Hutted States, has written a pamphlet ou the recent financial and commercial crisis of Oreat Britain. This pamphlet has created some conversation in the financial circles of Europe and Ameriot, and to -.itUfy tbo curiosity of our readers, wo gave a few extracts in tbe columns of tbe Herald several days ago. Owing to tbe desire frequently expressed to us, for bis opinion relative to the present position of the Bank of England, wc now make another extract "Let us shortly examine tbe unfortunate symptoms which we now witness, when, with a sound state of trade, and ? 10 000 000 of specie in the Bank, our monetary distress is greater than when in 18d6 the coffers of the Bank were empty, and a large portion of mer haute ruined by mad speculation The treasure of the liank had stood for a long time at about XlAOOO 000 in round numbers ; the amount of this treasure was considered a burthen to them, imposing a useless waste of interest It was a subject of complaint, and for a long time the directors would have been much obliged to any body who would have taken four or nvu millions off their hands. The want of food then occurred, and, combined with the increased price of cotton, overbalanced the amount of our exports, and required a part payment in bullion. The natural question, then, to be asked was, to what extent this was likely to go ! The continental exchanges afbrded no ground for alarm ; Ilussia at first took some gold from us, which soon ceased ; but the chief demand was for America?a country with which we have an extensive reciprocal trade It might fairly be presamnd. that four or live millions would satisfy this demand; which would reduce the treasure of the bauk from IS to 10 millions. This, which might have been tbe practical estimate of practical men, turns out to be the truth ; and the bank, with its ten millions left in its coffers, need nay* disturbed no interest*, or aisturnea them slightly.
