It will contain three engravings of the celebration of the Fourth in New Vork. This Bheet will be ready in wrapj?ers, and sold at 6^ cents each, mailed free from our office. The Next Arrival from Europe. We inadvertently stated yesterday, in an article on the news received by the Caledonia, that the American steamship Washington left Southampton on the first instant, and would be due here next week. Snch is not the case, because Captain Hewitt had decided upon having the hotwells of the machinery enlarged before he left, which would perhaps take several days to accomplish, and fixed upon the 10th as the day of sailing. We may, with confidence, expect the Washington on or about the 22d inst. The n<>xt arrival will be that of the Britannia, at Boston She left Liverpool on the 4th inst. The >'?wi from Mexico. The thousand and one rumors of peace which have been flying over ihe country in every direction for some time past, received their quietus yesterday in the news from the seat of war, and published in this day's paper. Instead of the probability of an early peace being concludcd, the likelihood now is, that it is us far off as ever, and that another bloody conflict will probably take place between the opposing armies of the two countries, before General '5eott can enter the capital. We cannot say that we are in tha least degree disappointed at me purport 01 mis news, never having credited these peaceru inors. Our correspondent at Washington has as good facilities of obtaining information as any person in that city, and he never 'mentioned a syllable on the subject or referred to these rumors till today, as may be seen in his letter, and then only to contradict them. We are probably as far from obtaining a peace as we ever were; and instead of Gen. Scott taking unobstructed and quiet possession of the capital, every inch of the way has likely been contested, and a determined effort made by the Mexicans to annihilate him. This is startling news,when we place it in contrast with what we have beeiA receiving from the war quarter for some time past. The enemy is determined, it Hppears, to risk every thing in another battle, on the issue of which will depend the possession of his capital. We cannot conceive, however, how it is possible lor the Mexicans to make such great preparations for defence, us we are informed by the news they are making.? We heard that, at the battle of Cerro Gordo, Santa Anna concentrated all his resources of military material, and there he wasdefeated.with the loss of all. We were told likewise that there were no means of defence left to him, that all the cannon of the country had come into our possession. Vet now we hear of the enemy acting on the offensive, and preparing to attack General Scott at three different points, and that the capital is to be defended with seventy or ninety pieces of artillery, made of the bellsjof the cnurches. If this news be true, the resources of the Mexicans have been underrated, and the next news will, therefore, be looked for with increased interest and anxiety. Stea.m Navigation i.n South America.?The Nutionnl Congress of the Republic of Venezuela, South America, having granted to Mr. Vespasian Ellis, a citizen of the United States, and to such persons as may become associated with him, the exclusive right of navigating the rivers Orinoco and Apureby steam, for the term of eighteen years, that gentleman, we perceive, is soliciting the attention of men of capital to the subject, and inviting them to co-operate with him in carrying out the enterprise. The first considerations which the contemplation of this grant suggests, are ihe present resources of the country?the extent of territory bordering on the Orinoco, its productions, and its present trade. The valley of the Orinoco is, in many rcspccts, like the valley of the Mississippi in our own country. It covers an area of four hundred thousand square miles of land, yielding the richest products of the earth, such as cocoa, coffee, indigo, tobacco, sugar, horses brazilwood, &c., &c., and watered by a hundred streams, many of which are navigable. The climate is temperate and salubrious. The Orinoco is navigable for four hundred leagues, and its principal branches, the Guaviare, Meta.Caroni, and Apure, are likewise navigable. The total amount of exports from the valley of the Orinoco, in the ynr, was two millions of dollars; a vast amount when we consider that a great proportion of the produce of the country is carried to the seaboard, hundreds of miles, and across mountains ana valleys, by means of mnles. Notwithstanding the want of steam communica tion on the Orinoco and its tributaries, we find thai the trade of the country is increasing at a Murprising rate, f 111832 the exports from Angostum were aDout $152,000, while in 1844 they were upwards of ?<j00,000, and the exports for the first uuarter of the present year amounted to #400,(V)0?showing a surprisingly rapid increase,,in the face of the obstacles which trade has to contend with there. The ratio of increase will no doubt be (juadrupled every year from the time that Mr Ellis will have his steam vessels navigating those rivers; for besides, the regular trade a large additional trade can., be carried on with New Granada, the Orinoco being navigable for steamboats to apoint within one hundred and twenty miles of Bogota, the capital. In fact, the Orinoco is not only the natural outlet for the produce of three-fourths of Venezuela, but also of that of Eastern New Granada, and northern Brazil, the freight of which, at the rates fixed by thegrant of Mr. Ellis, would annually amount to a very handsome snm. The estimated sum that would annually accrue from freight upwards for the first two years,is forty thousand dollars?on the article of domestic salt, fifty thousand dollars?for passengers forty thousand dollars?and on downward freights for agricultural productions, horses, mules, &c , eighty thousand dollars, making in all two hundred and ten thousand dollars yearly, on the present trade of the valley ; all of which would be carried by steamboats. It is proposed by Mr. Ellis to commence operations with two steamers, of three hundred tons burden each, the expenses of which, including every possible charge, he estimates, would not exceed seventy thousand dollars annually, leaving a profit of one hundred and forty thousand dollars annually.for the first two years. This estimate, it must be recollected, is based on the present export and import trade of the country, and it would of course increase with the auif. 1 ? ..? 1_ .i_-. PJ inemauon UUU cAjmiiBiun vi uauc nun wumu follow the introduction of steam navigation. It is the opinion of Mr. Ellis that, to keep pace with the increasing commerce of the Orinoco, it will be necessary to increase the number of steamboats on the rivers which he has procured the exclusive right to navigate, to five or tux, or more. The amount of capital requisite to commence this great enterprise is two hundred thousand dollars, and Mr. Ellis is desirous of associating * with him a company who] can command thai sum, and are willing to invest it at once ; for be it known, that unless he has the details ot the enterprise carried out and in operation before eighteen months from the month of May lust, the grant will l>e vitiated. Unless application hhall be made to him within a few weeks by a company possessing the means, it is his intention to form a joint stock company fixing the share* at one thoueand dollars each. We think, however, that he will not be forced to adopt the alternative, because w? are confident that he will find men possessing the necessary means to join hin in the enterprise. In addition to the grant of the right of exclu ive navigation, it is provided in the grants tha the enterprise shall be exempt from alimunicipa contributions, und from all national duties o ini|x<rting the steamers, tackle. &.c., and tha Mr- Kllis and his anociates shall have the pri "ileg? of cutting fuel free of oharge ARRIVAL # or thk STEAMSHIP UNION. VERT LATE INTELLIGENCE. OPENING OF A NEW EBA IN OUR OOKICXIKOB WITH rKAVOZI SPECIAL DESPATCHES TO THE NEW YORK HERALD OFFICE. die. dIC, dlO.; The Union, Captain Herbert, the pioneer of the French line of Ocean Mail Steamers, arrived yesterday from Cherbourg, France, after a fine passage of sixteen days. She left that port on the 22d ult. She came up the bay in the afternoon between 5 and 6 o'clock, in beautiful style, and fired the national salute when near the city. She was cheered by the passengers and crews of the various vessels which she passed. The Union has a black hull, and three masts, and appears very much like the Great Western. one moves nanasomeiy, ana came up uie Day with good speed, and took her place at the Great Western's dock in the East River. The impression made by the new comer as she entered the harbor was decidedly favorable, and the officers und passengers seemed greatly pleased with all that they saw and heard. Thus the new era in our commercial relations with La Belle France may be said to have fairly arrived, and hereafter we are to look for the French steamers as regularly as for the English mail packets. This new line of steamers is composed of the following ships, each of four hundred and fifty horse power : ? Union, New York, Philadelphia. Missouri. The second steamer of this line, the Philadelphia, was at Cherbourg. The intelligence brought by the Union is of very little importance. We are indebted to Mr. Wm. G. Hersey for late English, and to Dr. D. L. Ne6 for late French papers. The Chamber of Deputies was occupied on the 18th ult., with the bill destined to prolong the law passed last February, for the free entry, under all Hags, of foreign grain. This law, as it originally stood, would have expired on the 31st Octobei, reserving to the ministry the power of prolonging it by an ordinance, if this term should seem insufficient. The Chamber of Commerce of Strasbourg has just received advice from Maycnce that the proposition of the French Commissary to transport grain, flour, and dry vegetables free of the Rhine river duty, has been accepted by all the river governments, provisionally, until the 1st of September next. The price of bread in Paris was fixed as follows from the 17th June:?Bread of the first quality 58 centimes the kilogramme; 2d do 50 centimes the kilogramme. It is a diminution of . 3 centimes for the first quality. and of 4 centimes for the second. The Greco-Turkish difficulty is terminated by the submission of Greece to the conditions imposed by Turkey. The French Chamber of Peers, at the commencement of its session, on the 18th of June, received a communication, by a message from the Chamber of Deputies, which authorised the proceedings against M. Emile de Girardin, and it has ordered that M. Girardin; shall appear at its bar in four days, that is to say on the 22d of June. The Belgian journals announce that King Leopold will leave for London on the 21st or 22d of June, if his State will permit him. The harvests in France promise an abundant yield. It is with pleasure that we announce the receipt oi the first series of our correspondence from the continent of Europe. As the day of the departure of the French sieamer will in future be regular, our despatches will hereafter be written up to the latest moment. The Special Despatches. Paris. June 16, 1847. We are now drawing close to the termination of the parliamentary session, and the public asks, and asks in Tain, what has bee* done? There is no government in any country in the world, not even in Austria itself, so conservative as that of the present Cabinet of France. It verities strictly the(motto ascribed to it by its opponents. Hien, rim, rien. " Nothing, nothing, nothing." It literally does nothing. It belongs to what is here called the conservative party, but what in America would be called a stationary party. The administrative part of the United States govern ment tins iwen uiien spuitun ui u using uaoie to corruption, peculation,, malversation, and abase of patronage; but the worst charges against it sink into Insignificance, compared with those recently brought before the public, and the Chambers, against the government* here, past and present. An enquiry Is now In progress, before the Chamber of Peers, In which a former minister is charged with granting certain rights and privileges to a mining company, in consideration of receiving shares In the said company gratis, to the amount in value of about '200,000 dollars. This Is what is spoken of as the Cubit-res affair; General Cubic res, a Peer of France, having been the person threugh whose instrumentality the negotiation was oondurted. This enquiry had not proceeded far, when, to the astonishment of the publio, and the consternation of the Cabinet, M. hmile de Glrardin, a member of the Chamber of Deputies, and principal editor and proprietor of the journal called La Prttie, published in that paper a direct charge against the present Cabinet, the substance of whioh was, in fact, that they had opened a shop for the sale of every description of ministerial patronage and favor, and at which there was even a regular tariff of prices. The circumstances which led to this extraordinary disclosure are curious, and exhibit, in a striking point of view, the vast Influence ascribed to journalism In France. Last year a newspaper on an unusually large scale of magnitude, and advancing the most extravagant pretensions, was started in Paris, called the Epoque. This was soon known aa a ministerial journal, and was understood to be more particularly the personal organ of M. Gulxot After being continued for several months, the circulation, though considerable, falling far short of the expenses, aud the shareholders becoming Impatient undei the calls coming rapidly upon them, and hearing of no dividends even in prospect, meetings were held,at wklcb I it waa finally resolved to sell the enterprise by auction. This was accordingly done, and M. Km He de Uirardin became the purchaser of the good will, the subscription list, and all the goods and chatties of the unfortunate Epoque. He incorporated it with the Prettt, and so ended the Epoi/ue. A few month* later M. de Qirardin, who is one of the leader* of that party in the Chamber? called the "young conservatives" by some , and the " progressive conservatives" by other*, and who had with that party generally supported M. UuUot'a miui*try being fairly worn out by it* aUtlonary policy, denerted it, divided agalnat it on leveral question* in the < hambers, and Anally beoame the most bitter political opponent* of theii former friend, M. Oulaot, b?th in the Chamber* and in the Prnit. La Prene which lately had advocated th< measure* of M. Onliot now opposed him; and like ail renegade* from a party, became the moat bitter and pitilee* of all hi* opponent*. Matter* being brought to thi* state, there appeared within the last fen week* the article in La Prme, already mentioned charging the cabinet, in ezpreae term*, with permittinf the ministerial patronage to be publicly sold, and de daring that the editor* of that journal were in a oondi Hon to substantiate the charge by document*, in a word ltmppear* that on purchasing the JEptqut, M. de Glrar din found in the books and document* of that concern evidence that every *ort of patronage was publicly ?olc at it* bureaux?privilege* or patent* of theatres, oonce* - sions for public companies, audiences of the minister* crosses of the legion of honor, and, in fine, blank promise! of the peerage! The tariff of these article*, In some instances, was given. Thus, a license to *pen a new opera 1 house, was sold for twenty thousand dollars. The prlo? of the promise of a peerage was only *ixt?en thousand dollar*! It i* not pretended that the money, exacted in thil manner, found its way, in all case*, or altogether, to the pockets of the functionaries who really exercised th? i prtronage. It wa* a sort of douceur, paid to the journal for its interest In attaining the otyect* of the payer ol the fee. Juat a* people, who confer favor*, (ometlmei [ wink at their servant* receiving a gratification from ' those on whom the favor is conferred. > When this announcement appeared in La Preur, it wa* publloly noticed in the Chamber of Peers; and that - part of it which related to the alleged sale of promises oi t the peerage, was pronounced to be a high contempt ol .1 that House; and a motion was made, that M. Emife de n I < Hrardln he called to the bar of that House, to answei it Journal However, the editor being also deputy . this eoulrt not he e(footed without the permission ef the i representative ahamber; and an application Wa* th*r*' 1 'JP?n ?*>* wUob wa* referred to a select eometttw ?

If heahould be oomprlled to go before It; but at the same tin*, ditarowed aojr intention to attack the Chamber of I'eera, which he held in high respect Ilia attack, he mid, vai directed atfainxt the honesty of the Ministers, aod with the M in later* alone wax his quarrel. The committee appointed to raport on thin, liare reported in favor of aeuding M de Oirardln before the Cbambel of Peers, and thus the matter now stands. The financial condition of Krauce hnn become seriously embarraaaed. The rate of interest la raised, and the Dank of France la obliged to aeek relief from one extraordinary drain of apecia upon it, by obtaining from the Legislature, authority to laaua notes so small a* two hundred franca, ($40.) no not** having been hitherto issued under five hundred franca, ($100.) The causes assigned for this preeaure arc, first, the failure of the last harvest, and consequent necossity for large Importations of grain, necessarily followed by a'correeponding exportation of specie; and secondly, the extensive lines of railway which have been andertaken, and are in progress through the country, creating a new and augmeuted demand for the circuiting medium. The prospects at present of thenarvest in every part of Kranoe are good. The weather for the last month has been most favorable, aonsiderable heat being alternated with heavy falls of rain. The appearance of the crops i? consequently very cheering; nevertheless, it is quit* certain, that,owing to the deficiency of the potato, which has been planted this season in comparativelysiuall quantity, there will be ademand for foreign grain, however favorable the harvest may prove to be. In contemplation of this, the ^Legislature ha* already extended till next year, the present free system of importation, of every species of alimentary matter. * To foreign visiters Pari* has been especially dull this season. The number of resident foreigners was greatly less than usual, and the number of passing visiters still more seriously diminished. This has damped the spirit of the shop keeping classes, and all who live on the disbursements of those whose chief business is amusement. London has robbed Paris of most of the theatrloai stars. The grand opera, formerly so celebrated for the georguous ballet, and' Its magnificent body of artists, now hides Its diminished head before the Queen's Theatre and the Itoval Italian Ooera House. In fact it offers no attraction either to the resident or the visiter. The minor theatre*, those of thn? Boulevard* especially, continue to fill m usual, being the resort of those Parisians who never leave the capital, and cannot live without the yafc and the tpeclutlt. In liter*ture, the most popular work of the reason, is Lamastrlne's ' Girondists,' a work on that unexhausted and apparently inexhaustible subject the great revolution. V our speculating republishes would do well to translate it, if they have not already done so. Madrid, June 10J1B47. The results which had been anticipated by all well informed person* as consequent on the Royal marriages oonoluded by King Louis l'hilippe and the Queen Dowager continue to develope themselves. The Queen Isabella and her consort are in fact separated. They are domioiled miles asunder. Mutual aversion is the feeling which has followed these unhallowed nuptial*,which have had aasure Jly no honey-moon. The marriage bed will, of course, be barren; and unless the cunning of the French K ing have overreached itself,the leigning Queen is only the locum-tenen$ of the throne, whleh his daughter-in-law and her children must ultimately occupy. The prince consort ha* for some time back occupied a royal palace at some distance from Madrid, oalled the I'ardo, where he i* surrounded by a coterie hostile to the Queen and her cabinet. He ia the otyect of frequent visit* and axsiduous attentions from the French Ambassador, the Duke of Olucksburg. Kvery exertion has been made on the part of the friends of the Queen to induce him to return to the same roof with her Majesty, so as at least not to present to the world the scandal of an open separation. These attempts have been ineffectual ? Meanwhile the young Queen attaches to her person the fallen Don Francisoo and one of the sisters, tne Infanta Jossela, of her consort. In all her ridos and drives she is accompanied by these, and they are domesticated in the palace. When she makes a visit to any of the summer residences they invariably accompany her. Her mother, Queen Christine, who, it will be remembered, was some time since obliged to quit Spain in consequence of the unconstitutional influence she attempted to exercise in the palace, has lately applied for permission to return to Madrid. The ministry intimated that on their part no opposition would be made to suoh a step, but it was ascertained bv the friends of the Queen mother that the reception she must expeot from her daughter would not be such as would prove agreeable to her. On this hint she decided against returning, and is now at Paris. The Queen Dowager has just returned to France from a visit to Naples. Tho professed object of which was ta see her brother, the king of the two Sicilies, and tho other members of her family She had hardly arrived there when she departed lor Rome. It is understood that the reception she met with from her family, was not of a very cordial kind. Indeed, according to some reports, they declined to receive her at all. On her return she stopped four days at Rome, where she had a private audieuce of the Pope, the object of which is said to be to supplicate His Holiness not to grant the divorce wliic'i her daughter, Queen Isabella, is understood to have applied for. The present ministry here, is. in politics, of a shade between the tory and the radioal. A sort of ju$temilieu, as it is called in France. Its stability, however, is very doubtful, and it seems probable that ere long there will be a modification in the liberal direction. The conservatives or the moderadu party, as they are V...... -.11..I ..I... ......... V... the queen some months ago, appear little likely to recover office. The oourt of Rome, which, since the accession of the present queen, held no diplomatic relations with Spain, has just sent a legate. M. Brugnelle, to Madrid. This step is considered highly detrimental, if not totally destructive to the hopes of the Count de Montemolino. A divorce, followed by a marriage of the Queen with the Count de Montemolino, would appear to be solution of the Spanish question, which would satisfy oil interests; but the state of parties in this country would at present be violently opposed to such aooalition. Lisbon, June 10, 1847. The efforts of the Portuguese people to resist the assumption of arbitrary power by the Queen, have had a result not anticipated. To say they have failed and that they are crushed by foreign intervention, would not be < strictly true, since the English government has imposed ?onditions on the Queen in favr of the liberal party.? The capture of Das Owley, and the forces of the Junta off Oporto, was a proceeding, the origin of which was not at first apparent, in fact, it was a mode of accepting the intervention of England; which, from reasons connected with the state of parties, couid not have been freely and openly assented to. Although a free and constitutional government, exempt from all objections, will not be established at Lisbon, still a large portion of the objects of the movement of last October will have been obtained. The complete failure of the coup d'etat, the impotence of Spain to aid the Queen in carrying it out; the change of ministry in that oountry; the check exercised by England on the other parties to the quadruple alliance, and the narrow escape that Donna Maria has had of losing her throne, altogether, will serve as a warning to her in future against similar violent proceedings. Meanwhile free institutions will grow and strengthen in Portugal, and the people will learn the proper use and exercise, and the true nature and value of their rights, so that any future attempt made by tho sovereign to encroach on them, will be still more successfully resisted. The great aim of England has been to prevent 8paln and France, by separate interference, establishing a rooting in Portugal. The chances of the Duchess of Montpensler succeeding to the throne of Spain, render the British government more and more tenacious on this point. Berne, June 11, 1847. The liberal cause in Switzerland progresses In spite of the opposition, sccretly as well as openly, practised by tho French government. It will be remembered that Switierland, like the United States, only on a smaller scale, is a confederation of Independent republics, called cantons. Tbe rederal government consists or we uiet, which U the legislative body, anil the Vorort, which is the exeeutive The neat of the federal government 1* net fixed in a particular canton, but a?ses In rotation among several oantonr. At present it Is in the cai.ton of Berne, the resident of the grand council of which, in, in fact, President for tbe time being of the confederation. This individual la M. Ochsenboin, a diatinguiahed liberal and republican. Of the cantons which compose the confederation, there are seven in which the Catholic religion is predominant, and which favor arbitrary government, advocate tbe Jesuits, and are patronized and secretly protected and supported by Austria and the absolute courts. These cantons, opposed to the others, formed, some time ago, a separate league, and are known by the title of the ultra-montane league. Such a proceeding, being deemed Incompatible with the rights of the general government, and the obligation* due to the Diet and the Vorort, by tbe oantons, has been resisted by the ether cautons, and Internal dissensions have arisen, which at times reached a point approaching to olvll war. On the transfer of the general government to the liberal canton of Berne, the revolution which took plaoe last autumn In Oeneva, and other liberal movements, it > became apparent that the league of the seven cantons was likely to be soon condemned by a vote of the fede* ral legislature. The moment now approaches at 1 which this question will be brought to an > issue; and. accordingly, the ambassadors of the foreign powers at Berne, are assuming those attitud s in regard to the federal government which correspond with 1 the policy of their respective courts. Those of the absolute courts?Austria, Russia, and Trussia -have with ur&wn iroul owrue KiLUKticuri. BUU ?iiru up IUC1I msidence Rt l.ucerne, one of the cantons of the league ; thus signifying the sense they entertain of the general I government. The nmbaasadors of France, Kqgland. and Belgium will remain at Berne; but the first had 1 already nad a violent collision with the new President, | to whom be presented a menacing note, having reference to the possible proceedings of the Vr>rort,and whoreturn' ed'a dignified and spirited reply. France, in fact, under the polioy of M. GuUot, has plainly indicated her intenr tion of joining Austria in coercing the Swiss confedura> tion, and, as far as she can venture to do so, repressing t the liberal movement in this country We shall be able probably, by the next mail, to give you more definite information on these subjects. ' CoKJTANTijforLi, -J7th May, 1847. fcThe uuarrel between the Ottoman Porte and Greece, { whith threatened to lead to serious consequences, may b? considered as very nearly brought to a conclusion.? The unanimous declaration of the representatives of the | foreign power*, France alone excepted, against Greece, has been decisive. The Turkish envoy at Athens was insulted by the King of Greece in a public ball room, | beoause he refused to grant a passport which his own I government hail forbidden him to grant. Upon this, he i quit Athens, and returned to Constantinople Such an , outrage against the inviolable person of an ambassador, p wad felt to bo an oflence against the customs of all olvili lied nations. There waa but one statesman in Kurape r who did not feel that it ought to be visffed with the moat severe international reprehension, and that statesman was M. Gutiot After a leng and Ineffectual resistance, the cabiuet of Athens bun been compelled to oonsent to the return of M. Mlssurus, the offended envoy, and to olTer to him a suitable reparation | and apology. It Is understood that when this has been r dona, M. Mlseurus will be recalled, and the good understanding between the States re-established A commercial treaty between France and Greece is said to be in prooeM or negotiation at Athens.

The Mameluke is a very superior model for sailing]and carrying, and has been built of the best materials?live oak, locust and cedar top, and live oak cants; her ceiling, bilge, streaks, clamps and ceiling between decks, are of extra thickness, and as thick as many ships built in this city of two to three hundred tons larger. Her hanging knees between decks and lower hold are very heavy, and extra fastened.

Musical. Parji Tiikathk.?Tedesco's benefit last evening attracted a crowded houne?the most fashionable audience of the whole neaaon. The boxes were all filled with charming ladlea, elegantly dressed, nearly all bearing bo\iquets and wreathes for the htntficiaire. The opera of ''Norma," which had been selected by Tedesco as the best for a full exhibition of her extraordinary talent,was sung by her with an entrain and sentiment entirely unknown to the dilettanti who have some times reproached her for being not very animated. But last night her performance was admirable. "Costa Diva'' she exprennud with a taste Indescribable. Severi (Pollione) was in bettor voice, and displayed very eloquently the merit of his histrionic talent and the power of his compass. Kainieri, as Adalgiza. went through her part amid a merited reward of applause. Now for the two extra songs given by Tedesco.

Bowery Theatre.?So great has been the success of Monk Lewis's tragedy, "The Castle Spectre, or the Mysteries of Conway and so enthusiastically has it been applauded every night it waa performed, that the manager haa wisely determined to repeat it this evening, not however, without his being solicited to do so by his friends and patrons. That excellent piece, and the laughable comedy styled "Peter White," with the drama, ''The Beaoon of Death, or the Norway Wreckers," will form the bill of performances this evening. The manager will shortly revive the most gorgeous spectacle ever produced on the Bowery stage, ' The Naiad Hm-en." which drew so tremendously for a number of Hucoessivo nights.
