SPLENDID ACTION NATIONAL BRIDGE, BETWEEN THE AMERICANS AND MEXICANS. The Defeat of the Latter, with Loss of over One Hundred. FIFTY AMERICANS KILLED AND WOUNDED. AFFAIRS IN THE CITY OF MEXICO. dCC. dif. dir. The following important and interesting intelligence, was communicated to the New Orleans Delta of the 20fh instant, by Lieutenants Floyd and McWilliams, of the second Pennsylvania volunteers, who me over ou the steamship I Galveston it wa brought to Philadelphia hy h spertal over 1 express for the Neto York Herald, t and tlit nee tel< raplied to tliis city. It was re- < ceivtd by us thirty-six hours in advance of the rtRular mail. On tlie 8th instant, a small reconnoitering party, together with some citizens and disbanded soldiers, in number about 150, with 75 armed men and 30 mounted, left Puebla for Vera Cruz. This party was under the command of Capt.Bainbridge, of the 3d artillery. On leaving Jalapa and getting near Cerro Gordo, this party was informed that it would not be prudent to go through the pass, as there were 4,000 Mexicans in Jhe ehapparal along the pass. Previous to this the officers, who had gone to the rear of the train, were fired ut from the ehapparal at the mouth of the pass. The party was organized and marched through without meeting an enemy, and arrived at the bridge that evening. Whilst they were bivouacking on the other side of the bridge, being so fatigued that they were unable to furnish a guard, they were informed that some persons were barricading the bridge. A guard was then stationed below the bridge and the encampment to prevent the party being surprised. At this time, signal lights on the ridges and cliffs were distinctly seen. Before daylight the scouting party was sent out, and also a party to clear the bridge, which was done without any opposition. The main body of the party then passed over tVm liriffir* P'.vprv thinrr then nnnnnrol In he bufe; and all danger being past, Lieut. McWilliams and Mr. Frazer were sent back to bring on the train on the other side of the bridge. As they were entering the bridge, a party of about twenty-five Mexicans appeared on the bridge, and fired several volleys on them. The wagon master, and four others, who were passing the bridge were fired on, and the whole five were killed, and the wagon captured. It was of no great value. After the fire had ceased, a party of lancers appeared on the bridge, and seemed to be preparing to charge, but seeing that Capt. BainbridgcV party wese preparing to receive them, wheeled their horses and galloped off. Capt. R. pursued his march in good order, followed by 400 or 600 foot lancers, who hung upon his rear and flanks for four or five miles, but at a respeetuble distance. Thus hemmed in, this little party pursued its way until it arrived where Colonel Mcintosh had encamped with his train. The Mexicans who had attacked Capt. Rainbridge's party, were the same who had compelled Col. Mcintosh to halt and wait reinforcements The party remained that night in Col. M.'s ramp, and during the whole time the Mexicans kept up a continual fire on the camp, approaching with the greatest boldness very near to our sentinels. On the next day ("apt. Bainbridge's party resumed its march to Vera Cruz, being joined by Capt. Duperu's U. S. dragoons, who were sent back to get their horses. This company, with its gallant captain, behaved very handsomely at the attack on Col. Mcintosh's camp; indeed it was generally admitted that Col. M.'s command was saved by the gallantry of Capt.Duperu's party Capt. Bainbridge's party continued their march to Vera Cruz, where they arrived in safety in lllC iliruui I ill'. , wapi. fUjicm d vumiiiauu having a long return train to guard, and being threatened by a large body of lancers, halted at Santa Fe, where they were charged by a greatly superior force, which they gallantly repulsed, killing many of the enemy, and suffering verylittle loss themselves. It was said, however, ^that some of our wagons were cut off, and the drivers taken prisoners. Capt. Duperu arrived safely in Vera Cruz, having lost in all three killed, and three wounded. On the dny Capt. Bainbridge's party left Col. Mcintosh's camp. Gen. Cadwallader arrived, with a force of 800 men and two howitzers, and pushed on towards the National Bridge. On approaching the bridge, General C. occupied the heights commanding the Bridge, j from which the enemy had fired on Cupt. Bainbridge's party, where he was attacked by a large lorce of the Mexicans posted on the ridges and in the chapparal, nnd some hard fighting was carried on for several hours?the Mexicans losing more than 100 men, nnd Gen. Cadwallader losing some 15 killed and some 30 or 40 wounded ; the Mexicans were repulsed. The bridge was successfully passed by Gen. Cadwallader, who was on his way to Jalapn. The estimate I loss of Col. Mcintosh's party was about $ 1,000. | he road for miles was Strewn With empty boxes and bacon sides, which had been raptured by the enemy. There was a great deal of dissatisfaction in the army respecting the command which had charge of the train. There will |,P (;ourt 0j inquiry in the matter. .Since the above was written, we have learned that in the affair between General Cadwallader and the Mexicans at the National Bridge, tha company of Lieut. Blakey, of the newly raised volunteers, with two howitzers, charged the barricades,and swept them with a few discharges from the howitzers. In passing through,'howft* . . . rrst?. cvar, Lieut. Blakeiy received a heavy fire from the enemy on the ridge which commands the road, by which he sustained loss of one killed and four wounded, the Lieutenant himself being wounded in the leg. They also loet several horses. The heights were then charged on the right and left of the road, and gallantly carried, the enemy flying from before them in great confusion. When Gen. Cadwallader had passed the bridge, he was attacked by a large party of guerillas, who kept up a continual tire on his men for along distance. At Cerro was thought from reports of heavy tiring, that the enemy had made a stand in great numbers, though no apprehensions were entertained for the safety of (!en. Cadwallader's command, who was moving in a bold and steady manner?the only way to deal with the Mexicans. Captain Gates's company of 3d dragoons was sent by General Cadwallader to the rear, to reintorce the guards of the train, who were attacked by a large force of lancers, which they repulsed with considerable loss. There is much sickness in Vera Cruz, but very little in the Castle. General Cadwallader is much praised for the energy and promptness ot his movements to the i* 11 ? 1 w/r _t_ ? _ l i r _ * l. i rescue 01 ^oionri mciniusu, una ior me umvery and skill with which he scattered the swarms of guerillas, grown confident by the success of their previous enterprises. The garrison at Jalapa has been broken up by order of Gen. Scott, and all the sick and government stores have been sent to Perote Castle, so that this line of communication is entirely closed. Gen. Scott has had a road opened from Perote to Tuspan, from which, in future, all our stores and men will be sent, in preference to the old road. There are about 1000 men encamped at Vera Cruz. General Shields was at Jalupa, and was about to leave for the United States, when he received an order from Gen. Scott to join him at Fnebla. There are no preparations to defend any point between Puebla and the capital; all the odds and ends of the army are collected in the city, about 20,000 in number, but poorly armed, and are miserably provided for. There was a small pronunciamento at the city of Mexico. It was early put down by General Bustamente ; it was got up by factions of the populace party, and of the Gomez Farias party. Their cry was " Down with Santa Anna," but the President ad interim still maintains his pow er and influence. Congress had refused to accept his resignation. We have about six thousand men at Puebla, under command of Generals Worth and Quitman. Gen. Scott will remain at Puebla until he is reinforced. Gen. Bravo is in command of the army at the capital. The success of the attack on Col. Mcintosh's command has given great confidence to the guerillas, who arc swarming in great numbers through the country, and attacking all our parties, large and small. It was chiefly owing to the gallantry of Major Bennett, the Paymaster, that the specie wagons in charge of the party were saved. He was in one of them himself when the wagon was attacked, and fought like a tiger. Gen. Scott was at Puebla at the last accounts. The editors of El Arco Iris had received dates from the capital to the 2d of June. Santa Anna had a second time sent in his resignation of the Presidency. Congress had not, up to that time, accepted it. He had also made a formal resignation of his office as Commanderin-Chief of the army, which, like his resignation of the Presidency, remained in abeyance. Five Mexican generals. whose names are not given, have been arrested and sent to the different States for confinement. The gallant Capt. Walker has commenced his work of retaliation on the guerillas. On the morning of the 8th inst., he started with his command from Perote, on an expedition some distance into the interior. During the expedition he succeeded in capturing nine guerillas and an alcade. He has employed them in clearing the streets and sinks. A letter had been received in Vera Cruz on the 15th instant, previous to the sailing of the Galveston, direct from the headquarters ol Gen. Scott, stating that Gen. Scott had issued orders for the removal of the prisoners from Vera Cruz to Tuspan. This change was said to be partly owing to the sickness in Vera Cruz, and because communications oould be more easily kept up uetween Tuspan and Puebla, than between the latter place and Vera Cruz. distinouishkn Arrivals.?The following gentlemen arrived in the afternoon train from the South, yesterday, and have taken apartments at the Astor:?Mr. Buchanan, Secretary of State, ind suite, to wit:?Gov.

Ac. visit to st. Bartholomew's chuhch. In the foranoon. the President attended divlua worship in St. Bartholomew's Church, corner of Oreat Jones street and Lafayette Place, in company with Mayor Brady. He looked much better than he did on Saturday and appeared to hare derived considerable benefit and refreshment from a good night's rest. The attendance at the church was not larger than usual, in oonquenoe, as we be.ieve, of bis intention to worship there not being generally known. He walked In, leaning on the arm of Mr. Brady, and took a seat in a pew near the centre of the church. Very few of the congregation were aware that the President of the United States took part with them in the exercises, and mingled his voice with thelr's in supplication. The sermon was preached by the Rev. Or. Balch, rector of the church. The Rev gentleman selected the twenty-third verse of the sixth chapter of St. Paul's Epistle to the Roman's, as bis text, which is in these words ? "For the wages of sin is death : but the gift oi God is eternal life, through Jesus Chrl?t our Lord " He premised by saying that by the word sin. mentioned in the text, the author of sin Satan, is intended, and that in the oourse of his discourse he would substitute one for the other?and instead of speaking of sin, he would speak of Satan, the author of sin. Paul, in using the language of the text, had no doubt before him the fact referred to in the gospel, that there is waging a continual contest between Satan and the kingdom of ueaveu, carrieu on uy me iouowerg 01 eacn, ana in wnicu the soldiers of gin earn death and the soldiers of the cross receive eternal life. Thli remark obviates the objections which muit occur to the minds of some. How can we earn the wages of sin, when, by gratifying ourselves. we do not intend to enlist under the banners of Satan. The reply is simple, but conolusive. If found in Satan's is a matter of no consequence whether such enlistment was made for private purposes or not. A man who commits treason among traitors cannot be excused for his acts. The sinner must receive his wages for a course of sin deliberately pursued. What cansolation can a man of the world have ?what consoling reflections can be have who has lived a life of disrespect to the religion and to the word of Ood ' He will say to him who walks in the path of truth and righteousness, did you not tell me that religion was mode up of sighs and tears ? Sto. He then reviewed the many excuses which men of the world make for not acting as they should, and said that every man who defers bis repentance and bis duty to God can answer, what he received as his wages. Satan lives in the agony of his victims. ? But suppose there was a remnant of mercy in the Prince of Darkness?what then? Would God allow any portion of his attributeb to be exercised by the Devil ? He then spoke of the pleasure of sin, which is often used as an argument by men of the world, and contrasted the evanescent pleasures of the miser, the sensualist, the pretender to piety, with the permanent pleasures of all who enlist under the banner of the Cross. He then adverted to the second part of the text?The gift of God is eternal salvation through Jesus Christ. He drew a distinction between the glttTn one cose, and wages in the other?and said that it was through Jesus Christ alone, who offered himself as a sacrifice for us, that eternal life oan be received. Earn it we never can. Said he, let us reason if we could earn eternal lifeShould there not be some service? But what service could we do to entitle us to participate in the glories of an eternal hereafter ? But we are to make some recom pense. and the manner in wnicn wu are to do it 18 plain anil distinct, and can be accomplished by a triumph of our moral nature. Can we purchase eternal lifer By what? We bare got nothing that God himself did not bestow. Eternal life is given to all who will receive it. If you consecrate yourselves to God, and are asked why you do so, you can answer you do it because you love him?because he gave his life for you, and that the wages of sin is death. Benediction was pronounced when the sermon was ended, and Mr. 1'olk, in company with Mr. Brady, proceeded to the Astor House. THE PRESIDENT AT AFTERNOON SERVICE?DR. SKINNER'S CHURCH. The President's intention to be present here, at afternoon service, drew together a vast crowd, in addition to the usual congregation, so that this neatly constructed edifice was well filled about half past three o'clock, with a highly fashionable assemblage. His Excellency the President, escorted by the Hon. B F. Butler, entered the church at this hour, and took his seat in front of the pulpit, in the fourth tier; aftor which a very excellent choir, consisting of male and female singers, chauntrd the 101 st I'salm, accompanied by the well toned organ attached to the church. Dr. Skinnkr hereupon, in the discharge of his clerical duties, announced that the baptism was to take place of one of the infant children of bis congregation, which was duly performed by the Rev. Doctor, who christened the child (and a remarkably beautiful baby it was) Maria Louisa. The little prattler, during the performance of the ceremony, seemed perfectly happy with itself and all around it, as it kept up a unnliuual talk, in apparent good humor, until all was over The choir hereupon sang the 119th Psalm, when Dr. Skinner delivered the discourse prepared for the occasion, with an Impressive solemnity, which seemed to have had much effect upon his congregation, taking his text from the 137th Psalm. In his opening remarks, he dwelt upon the importance attached by the Jewish people to patriotism. It had been said that the religion of Christ and patriotism could not be held compatible : but he oontended that Christianity and patriotism were reconcileable. After dwelling upon the blinded ignorance of the Jewish nation on putting the Saviour to death, under the delusive belief of the necessity and of their right to do so, the Rev. Dr. went on to explain the true definition of patriotism. It was admitted that philanthropby and not patriotism, in its ordinary sense, was what the gospel inculcated, and to make tbe spirit of Cl.riiti-udty opposed to patriotism, would be unnatural. I'hu religion of Christ was not opposed to patriotism Good may come to a country by tbe exercise of patrloti-m. But it had been a question, whether Christians or ministers of the gospel should not stand aloof en political questions and not vote at elections. Tnere may be occasions when such a course would be prudent?but there may be also occasions when tbe cause of their country demanded tbeir interference. Should the interests of tbe nation require it, tbey were bound to extend their sympathies in behalf of it; and in such a case, it public sentiment were opposed to the interference of clergymen, clergymen should be equally opposed to puDUC sentiment Again, patriotism wax governed by the Gospel. and they could frankly express their sentiments in relation to the action of their cabinet ministers. But to maintain that non-interference was their duty, he contended, was contrary to the injunctions of the Scriptures Religion, and the into reel of their country, demanded that they should interfere it was said, too,i| that Christianity forbade the use of arms and martial courage. This was not so The Gospel maintained that It was, at all times, lawful to serve our country. After further dwelling on the Importance and necessity of exercising the true and Christian spirit ot patriotism, the reverend Dr. went on to impress upon the congregation the necessity of the daily exercise of prayer for those who are in authority and office, and temporarily preside over the destinies or the country. He next adverted to tne question of slavery, and contended that, whatever its evils, or its advantages, the community should not be led away by the mere fanatical designs of political enthusiasts on tilts question Slavery would eventually give way before enlightenment; it was a question of time, and those who denounced it, and iidvooated its abrupt termination, seemed to have lost sight of this great question, namely, the present capabilities of the slaves to govern themselves The slave should be prepared and qualified for liberation. After cursorily glancing on the question of slavery as it existed in the Roman Krnpire, be next referred to Romanism as it existed at present in America, and pronounced its existence dangerous to the institutions of the country. It was supported by Austria. France and other European nations; and the Catholics bad KWUril BU HllfKIHDUf IU II1Q I ll|JO BC Lliru I Lin UCUU. Ill relation to Hatbolic emigration, however, they should encourage it, under the leaves of that great tree that spread Its foliage over their beautiful land? in conclusion, after adverting to national education, the Reverend Dr. pronounced a high eulogy on the onward progress of the the temperance cause?when the choir again cbaunied a hymn in connection with the services, and the congregation, at the conclusion, separated, the President leaving the church, accompanied by Mr. Butler, and a large crowd following him towards his carriage, into which be entered after receiving the congratulations of several who had been present, and drove off towards his temporary place of residenro. THE PRESIDENT AT EVENING SERVICE?DUTCH REFORMED CHURCH, LAFAYETTE PI.ACE. On account of the intimation given in the lUrulA yesterday morning, that the President contemplated attend ing Divine Service at the Dutch Reformed Church, at the corner of Fourth street and Lafayette Place in the evening, in addition to the members of the congregation worshipping there, a very large number of strangers, the greatest Iportlon of whom were ladies, were on hand at an early hour. Many, after standing in the aisles for st me time without getting a peep at bis F.xoellency, in consequence of his non-arrival, rstired, and thereby afforded nn opportunity to a portion of those who flocked thither at n late hour, for the same purpose. At about a quarter to eight o'clock the services were opened by singing the 13Ath Psalm, from Watt's collection, commencing with. "Praise ye the Lord, exalt bis name.'' The Rev. Dr. Scott, of the Hutch Reformed church, Newajv N. J , then offered up an eloquent prayer; at the conclusion of which, and while the choir were singing one of Watt's hymns. "Ome shout aloud the Father's grace,' the President, in company of AJderiuan Oliver, entered and took his seats in the pew of the latter, in about the centre of the ohurch. to which almost ever eye was Im mediately tuined. while the hundreds that had been impatiently waiting outside, pressed forward to positions where they could best observe the Thief Magistrate of the Onion The Rev Mr ecott. then proceeded to deliver his discourse from the following text. Oospel o! Ht. Morks, !?th chap, 4th verse. "And there appeared unto them, i.ihh* with Moses ; and they were talking with Jesua." The reverend speaker also quoted the follow'ng passages from the same chapter: "There be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste death until they have seen the Kingdom of Ood come with power. And after six daya. Jesus took with him Peter and Jaines and John, and leadnth them up into a high mountain apart bv themselves, and he was transfigured before them, and bis raiment became shining, exceedingly white as snow, to as no fuller on earth oan white them ***** And Peter answered and said to Jesus, Master, it Is good for us to be here; let us make three taber 'j nqui l' fj'-i.

[Krom the New Haven Herald, Juna 36 ] All persons, without distinction of party, who are desirous of joining a cavaloade in escorting the President of the United States, next Monday, on his arrival to our city, are invited to meet at the whig committee room, in Street'* building, this evening. The committee of arrangements will leave the Tontine at 10 o'clock, in carriages, for the steamboat landing. The military will take up their line of march for the same point at 10 o'clock, and take position opposite the Pavilion. The commanders of ths several corps are requested to detail a sufficient numoer of men to act ae a temporary guard, in keeping the ground dear of unnecessary vehicles, ko., while the President is landing. The Mayor of the city will receive the Presideut at the landing,and as soon as the carriages are occupied,the eseort will proceed. It may not be generally known to our citizens, that the expeoted arrival of the President of the United States will not be his first visit to the " City of Kims." in the month of Nov., 1834, there was seen orocsing College campus, a grave looking gentleman accompanied by four youths, very juvenile in their appearance, aud easily recognised on oollege grounds as sub-freshmen, or candidates for the freshman class. The stranger inquired tor one of the officers of the oollege, with whom, through the medium of the members of his family, he had formed some previous acquaintance, and having found him. announced himself as " Mr. Polk, of Tennes see." addiuff that he had come with an interestine man of young friends, consisting of bis brother, damuel W Polk, his two nephews, James N. and Joseph K. Walker, and Wm. T. Cooper, the son of a friend, whom he wished to plaoe under the guardian care of Professor , for the purpose of receiving their education at Y ale College. The youths of his charge having been examined and admitted to college, Mr. Polk attended personally to all the arrangements neoessary in selecting and furnishing their rooms, and settling them at their respective boarding houses?beBtowlng great pains upon every particular that would, in his view, contribute to secure their oomfort or preserve their morals. His estimable lady had accompanied him. and was at the hotel, where the writer had an opportunity of being presented to her; and he was at that time much impressed with her graceful and amiable demeanor, although he little thought of the elevation in sooiety to which she was destined Mr. and Mrs. rolk remained here several days, during which they attended public worship in the Chapel, where they appeared as interested hearers and humble worshippers. The impression they both left on the minds of the few persons who had the pleasure of forming their acqualntaxce, was in all respeots highly favorable; and however much sonic of us may disagree with the President in regard to public measures, it appears to the writer to be a just ground for extending to our distinguished guest a oordial and respectful reception, that both himself and lady have maintained in the exalted position assigned them, private lives so spotless and exemplary. Of the interesting oharge which they left at college, the brother (Samuel W., Polk) soon after leaving college in the year 1838, sickened with consumption, during the progress of which, Under the faithful care of a pious mother, he became deeply affeoted with the truths of the Christian religion, found great peace in its hopes and consolations, and died joyfully folded in his mother's arms, a privilege which he earnestly requested as the last lie oould receive from so excellent and beloved a parent. i ne Miner naving uiea wben tuts son was very young, his elder brother, the President, had become his guardian, and the writer of this artiole had many opportunities of witnessing with what intense interest and affection he exercised the trust. Among the members of the group which Mr. Polk brought to college, one was Mr. J. Knox Walker, now his private secretary, who, as well as young Cooper, graduated in very respectable standing in the class of 1838. The elder Walker had previously lett college on acoount of ill health. It will be seen, from the foregoing statements, that our distinguished guest has before not only visited our city, but has testified his high estimation of our University, by selecting it as the placo of eduoation of his nearest relatives ; and his return to It we believe will be fraught to hlin with peculiarly interesting reminiscences of both the living and the dead. [From the Boston Post. June 36 1 The invitation of the citizens of Concord, New Hampshire, was received by the President in Washington, and favorably answered by his private secretary, Juno ID. On the 33d instant, tbe city council of Manchester. New Hampshire, passed a resolution inviting the President to visit that city, and Messrs. James O. Adams. James McK. Wilkins, Charles Wells, Wm. M. Parker, D A. Bunton, Frederic Wallace, and Caleb Johnson, were appointed a committee of invitation. 1'he committee have secured for the President th? splendid suite of apartments in the main building of the I Revere House, fronting on Bowdoln square. Theatrical. Bowery Theatre.?There will be a capital bill la the Bowery theatre to-night?a grand equestrian spectacle? a comedy and a favorite drama, viz: ' Maioppa," " Like Master Like Man,11 and the " Devil in Paris." The friends of Mr. Neafie will bear in mind that Mr. Neafle's last appearance and benefit at this theatre will take place to-morrow evening. Palmo'i Opera Hoi'ie.?This neat theatre opens this evening with an excellent company of oomedlans. among whom are Mrs. Timns, Miss Anna Cruise, Mrs. Watts John Dunn, and William Chapman.

Mr. Burke is the lessee and John Dunn the niHuager. The orchestra is under the direction of Mr. Lebrun. This is is a very good company, and, under careful management, will be likely to succeed. In a day or two we shall speak of the dramatic qualities of the company generally. Castle Garden.?This evening the amusements commence with an overture, followed by the light comedy of "My Little Adopted Son," Mr. Waloot playing the character of Fredrick Somers, andj.Miss Clarke Lauretta Seymour. It is unnecessary to say, that these characters will be well sustained, as also the other parts, played by Messrs. Arnauld and Evirard, Miss Phillips and Mrs Isherwood. Those who have been patrons of the Olympic canjuigefor themselves. After the comedy, Miss L.Wells will dance " F.l Xaleo de Xeres." There will then be an intermission for half an hour; after which the orchestra will play an overture, followed by a " Pas de Deux" by Misses Louisa and Amelia Wells. The entertainments will conclude with the laughable vaude ville of " Kill or Cure." The proprietors are using every effort to procure the best talent, and announce for to morrow evening, the appearance of the celebrated Herr Cline. We wish French and Heiser every success in their present undertaking; but we are certain the talent he has engaged will attract full and fashionable audi ences. F-qi'eitrian Movement.?The progress of General Welch and hi* inimitable company, through the Interior and Northern portion of this State, haa been very succeeaful. In (act, the open, frank, gentlemanly demeanor of the proprietor, together with the unquestionable talent of hia troupe, will ensure him, whatever he goes, reaped able patronage. The newspapera In every town are laudatory in their remarks upon the performauces ot hi*company. To distinguish hie from other companies, we shall mention a few of the leading performers Madam Louisa Howard is one of the drat equestrian artists in the States?she haa no rival ; the graoe and elegance of her feats are highly spoken of?in fact, ah* seems the enchantress of her art. Dan Rioe is the drat and best clown in the oountry?from his versatile talent he is always attractive. John Olenroy, the pupil of Mr ttioe, is also much admired. The Rivers Family, iu their gymnastics and equitations, are considered equal to the llavels. Signer Oermain, the Riding Juggler, and his pupils, are surprising In their performances. The beautiful Arabian mare, Haldee. managed by Mons. Devious astonishes the audiences by her precision and grace in dancing and waltzing?one would Imagine the animal was imbued with human peroeption and reason. Tb* pavilion Is brilliantly lighted with a newly invented gas. which makes every thing as dear as in noonday. Tbl grand pageant will exhibit at Whitehall thir (Monday) and will perform at I'lattsburgb on the 4th of luly Afterwards, they will proceed en route to Mon treat. We wish the General and hie incomparable company the tuocess which enterprise, sterling talent, and indefatigable exertion to please, will always claim from a discerning community. Ma.

Pakk TMiAfftr.?Th? grand opera of ' Saffo," by MftMtrO Qiovanni Paccini, is to be repeated thia veilin*, by general request. We afegled, and our readers will be glad alee, to be able to again hear this opera, for it was and it will be more and more appreciated at each audition. The part filled by Fortunate Tedesco is a sublime piece of acting, and she singi the Inspiration song in the last act most admirably. Our comparison of her with Oriai, has been very much appreciated by all the dillrttanti who have seen and heard the ' 4|ueen of the singing art." Tedesco looks like Damereau Clnti. and displays a talent very nearly equal to Orisi 8ignore Marini. whose deep and line voire made a great impreseion in the opera of 'Saffo.'' is to appear agaiu this evening with Perozzi and Battaglini. No doubt the I'ark Theatre will be crowded, for it is the last night of the season, and the compauy will remain only two , weeks more in New York. Vauxhall.?The company Of negro minstrels si present engaged at this saloon, are exceedingly clever The j bass voice of Raymond is the most melodl me bav i listened to for some tine. In fact, we doubt much. If any similar company can produce such a full, round, and at the same time sweet voioe, as this gentleman possesses Carter, the banjo player le equally clever in his line and Donaldson, the tamborine player, keeps the audience in continual laughter. There is a softness and lightness In their choruses, which make the harmony of the voices sound very delightfully upon the ears ot the audieuce As wo before said, if this company were in Broadway, they would become great favorites, and Mr. Campbell would be well repaid for his selection of such talent. But Vauxhall is not more than two blocks from Broadway, and a visit to the garden and saloon will repay the patrons. Madame Fleurv Joev and Mr. Dubreuil, whessarrival ; we announced last week, intend to sive a errand concert : at the Apollo llooun, on Thursday next. The#- two i artists belong to the excellent company of French opera directed by Mr. Davis, in New Orleans, and it ia said by the lovers of music in the Crescent City, that both pos- I seas very great talent. Madame Fleury Joly, the pri- ' ma donna, ia a charming little woman, with sparkling eyes and very good feature*, and the compasa of her ; voice, her rnrthodc and acting, are aaid to be excellent.? Mr Dubreuil, who has sung in Italy with Benedetti and | Beneveutano, possesses a splendid barytone voice; Mr j Oenorese (a tenor who makes his first appearance,) and Mr. Tiuim, will assist the two French artiste. We wish them great success and a crowded room. May Apollo look upon them with kindness. and Sivoki are at Louisville. City Intelligence.

It may not be amiss for me to apprise you of the dosngs, movements, &c., at this place, and in doing so, I will relate them to you in as brief a manner as possible, and by way of memorandums, for 1 always found short epistles the best. On the night of the 1st June, at 8 o'clook, one Norris, a discharged volunteer, belonging to the Baltimore and Washington battalion, and a native of Baltimore, killed one Gibbons, also a native of Baltimore, and, for some months, employed in the Quartermaster's department.?

The stock market, during the past week, has been comparatively quiet, and prices have not materially changed. The usual fluctuations of the season have of course been experienced, but nothing of any importance has trans puctt uucuiiug oujr ui tuc npevuimirv 8iocu in inti street. The approaching hot weather will, without doubt, tend to depress the market price of many of the fancies, and create a very dull state of things ; but it cannot but be temporary, and a reaotion must take place as soon as the business season opens. We look for an extensive speculative movement in stocks between this and October, believing there is a margin in many of the securities, now considered of a fancy character, for 1 an advance of ten to fifteen per oent. Should the money market continue as abundantly supplied with oapital as it is at present, we see nothing to prevent a very great inflation in prices for every species of stocks, in real estate, and in everything else exoept bread stuffs and provisions. There is every probability of money continuing easy, and the rate of interest very much reduced. Our importations will be more limited, compared with our exports, than is generally anticipated, and the balance on our foreign trade is likely to be largely in our favor, and a steady Influx of specie from foreign countries is likely to oontinne for a long time. We have already reoeived upwards of twenty-three millions of dollars in specie, in a period of six months, and, although we may not receive it in such largo sums, the current must steadily set towards our shores, swelling the aggregate to a large amount. The most exaggerated ideas are entertained relative to our import trade. The consumption of many foreign , productions is Increasing as our population increases ; while, on the other hand, the consumption of Dany foreign manufactures is rapidly decreasing, as our own manufactures become extended and our own fabrics i approach, in quality, &.o., those of European make It is . astonishing with what rapidity our domestic manufacI tures arc taking the place of foreign fabrics, and , ' a corresponding reduction in the Importation | of these goods must be realised. Within the past twelve months, even, in the face of the revenue al valorutn t&rlil, greater progress has been made in the ! manufacture of fabrics similar to those heretofore im- . ported from E ngland, than iu any three years previous; and a few years will suflloe to place us iu a position as a manufacturing nation, second to none others. As we I progress In this department of Industry, our importaI tious will decline, until we ean not only supply our home | demand, but become large exporters to all parts of the world.
