NEW YORK HERALI ? :.- .- ....jj-.ma.il luuihm Krw York, Mafurtlay, July IT, 1WJ. Onr III mi rut til W?*kly. This morning at nine o'clock, the IVtti Jim-old will be ready at *h<? desk of this offit Single oopies, in wrappers, sixpence each. Nothing of interest that has transpired for t past w?ek, in any part of the country, will omi'ted in it,whilst it will contain,in addition the proceedings of the Chicago Convention?li and important news from California and Orrg ?the latest intelligence from the seat of warfu'l description of the Chinese junk, and a ^ riety of other interesting matter. It will also contain three beautiful engravinj namely, the French steamship Union, t Chinese Junk, and the town and harbor of S Fruncisop* in California. S*WI by tUe Britannia?IU probable Con lilvxlon. The steatnship'Brit tiiuiu, from Liverpool 1"< Boston, has been at sea nearly thirteeu day and as she made her last passage in a little ov? twelve days, is now lully due. Her advict from England will be sixteen days later tha those rrcived by the Caledonia from Liverpoo and thirteen duya later from France, than thos received by the Uuion from Cherbourg. r Ul- i? We anticipate mtoi'iuic ?^wuuis, wum <M financial and commercial point of view. W huve every reason to believe that a continuatio of fine weather has been experienced ; and t very thing depends upon the harvests, favorabl advices relative to the croys will give a corre: pondtu ; complexion to everything else. Pric< for br^adstuffs are now so much reduced in th country that we do not anticipate any particuli influence upon them, even in the event of tf prospect on the other side being in favor of moi than an average yield. We do not expect an further depreciation in prices in our own ma kets until all doubts relative to the crops of tl country are lemoved, and the harvebts ha> been scoured. An advance in cottou in England is con: dently looked for by holders here, and it is 01 iuiprcbSion ih. y will not be disappointed. A improvement tu cotton will follow a decline i breadstuff's, just as sure as night follows the da; and so I'dr as our most important interests ai concerned, they would be much more benefitte by a rice in cotton, than in any improvement i breadstuff's. Commercial affairs in Great Britain, amide all ibe financial difficulties with which they hav b??n surrounded, have rem*iued in a health; condition, and are therefore immediately afTectei favorably, upon the first improvement in the mo ney market. That improvement has no doub by this time been reulized, and we expect to se? a general improvement in trade in the manufac luring districts, and in fact in every thing 0011 neot<;d with commerce. We can afford to giv? Europe cheap bread, if she will give us a gooc price for our cotton. The Government Djcks^Th* Probable v ounto of the Secretary ot the Navy. We learn from ii.formation derived irom a reliable source, that the dock question has, for the present, at all events, been set at rest. We art enabled to lay before our readers the details oi he course taken by the Secretary of t.ie Navy ir the matter, and ttie decision at which he ulti mutely arrived. The law ot Congress provides for the construe tion of floating docks at Philadelphia, at Kit tery, in Maine, and at Pensacola, Florida. I: oratr 10 oate am cnoice 01 one 01 tne oumoer a patented docks upon ihe decision in its favor, o those most competent to give a fair judgment, b reason of their professional skill and freedoi from bias, the Secretary of the Navy directei circulars to a number of naval officers,engineers aud scientific men of acknowledged merit, en quiring of each whether or not he had ever ex pressed an opinion, or whether he then entei tained any prejudice in favor of any particula description of floating dock. From those reply ing in the negative, he formed a board to ex umine the several patented docks. But as economy entered largely into the calci Ution of the respective merits of these invei tions, he directed the proper bureau to issue a< vemsements for proposals from the different pi tentees, such proposals to contuin specificatioi of prices. These proposals were called in befo the sitting of the commission; because, if b fore ascertaining the price of construction, tl board had decided in favor of any particular d scription of dock, the Department would ha been at the mercv ol the patentee, hh there rnn be uo competition, the uct of Congress being ir ]>?rative as to the construction of some dock, t] clioise only being left to the discretion of tl Secretary. The various prices were according ascertained, the board sat, and having given tl meiits of each patent mature consideration, decision was made ia favor of the Iialance Docl us best, and the Sectional Dock us second bea the commissioners, however, declaring, that i none of these docks could they discover that ei during solidity and strength that ought to cha ajterize a national work, the best of the paten ed inventions requiring to be, in cffect, rcncwe every fifteen years, in the opinion of the boaft and every twenty-five years in that of the patei tees. The lav of Congress was, however, unpen live, and this reservation of the board, the se Vetary would feel compelled to overlook; but difficulty arose. The patentees would constru the docks for a ccrtain sum, but they would n dispose of the right of constructing to the go eminent. This would put the government greet inconvenience. They should dischari their own workmen from the yards, or introdu among them a different set of artificers und strange employers, thus causing intermiaab confusion. The unpleasantness such a cour would give rise to is easily appreciable. On tl 25th of June a formal proposal was made by tl department to the patentees of the docks, appro ed by the board, to purchase from them the rig to construct the docks on their plan. This pi posal has been peremptorily refused. But another and much more serious difficul arote The price of constructing these patent docks exceeded the appropriation made by Co press. This appropriation is not a special on but occ\jfs in the regular auuual appropriation f the naval service for the year ending June I 1818. As such, the question occurred,does it n c <mt within the prohibition contained in thefl nrction of the act of Congress approved May 1820, eatitled, "an act in addition to the sevei acts for the establishment and regulation of tl Treasury, War and Navy Department!)," whi< provides, "that no contract shall hereafter I mule by the Secretary of State, or of the Tre miry, or of the Department of War, or of tl Navy, except under a law authorising the earn nr under an appropriation adequate to its fulf jiient,"4ic ? Now, the appropriation made by Co great) at it* last session, for the construction the floating docks, id not adequate to their cot pletiou, and under these circumstance*, the Se recury of the Navy doubted whether he cou legacy enter into a contract for their constru lion. Not trusting, however, solely to his ow judgment in the matter, he referred thequestio we uadersund, to the Attorney General for d cision, and in a^eordance with that decision t was determined to act. After giving the subject alhhe attention whic lis imp rt??ce demanded, the Attorney Genera W iM the same *<?urc?, deeded thi ?aJ'lrr-m ' w ibii ) aider th? law of 1820, the Secretary of the Narj cannot enter into a oontract for the Mnstruotioi =* of floating dock*, for the reason* above men tioned. ~ This, therefore, it might be supposed, was an , end of the question. Not so, however; lor w? learn that no sooner was the decision of the Attorney General announced, than the contractor* . voluntarily ottered to abate out* hundred and twenty thousand dollars from their first bid, in order to bring the contract within the appropriation, and, at the same time, compel the Secretary lte to contract;while, at the same time,they would not ?n agree to construct the docks of the dimensions at -a first agreed upon and recommended by the board a~ a? the minimum?such dimensions as to be able to take up a vessel of three hundred feet in 's' length. The new steamshipscontrac ed for with '16 E. K. Collins, Esq , Col. Sloo, and others are BU to be of that length, and consequently, as these vessels maybe turned at any time into war t_ steamers, docks of a smaller size would not be capable of rendering efficient use in the naval )i service. S| We alao learn that the Attorney General re r commends that the appropriation under the act, >s be expended in preparations for the construction n of docks?the preparations to be of such a cha1, racter thatHf Congress agree to build stone docks, e instead of floating ones, that they will do for that purpose, and that it is the intention of Mr. a Mason to recommend their construction, e We have received some statistics on thisquesn tion, which will be read with interest. From is f'ie enquiries that have been instituted on the le subject, it appears that a stone dock costing at j. the outset one million of dollars, will, at the end ;9 of Bixty years, be cheaper than a floating dock is costing one-quarter of that sum, and that the ir former would last five hundred years. This ie arises from the fact that the floating dock will re not last over fifteen years.

K Steamship Sarah Sands?At the hour of jour i going to press this morning, we had not re ceived any tidings of the.Sarah Sands. The re1 latives and friends of the passengers naturally - feel some anxiety for her safety, but they need * not have any fears. It must be recollected that - she is not a regular steamship, so called, but de' pends as much on her sails as she does on her 1 engine. If the latter become in any wise deranged, she may not be here for several days to oome. As it is, she is not at sea a very great length of time. The packet ship Gladiator sailed from London on the first of June, and has not yet arrived. She is in her forty-seventh day ; and the Liverpool left Liverpool on the sixth of the same month. The Sarah Sands is in hpr thirty-second day, and will, in all probability, arrive in a day or two. No fear need be entertained for her safety for many days yet. The Bonded Warehouse.?I nporters and n merchants interested in the security of merchan,f dise warehoused in this building, will be pleased if to leara that the efficient collector of this port y has just completed the construction of hydraulic u apparatus throughout the warehouse, capable, d if necessary, of inundating every floor. The i, " pipe-laying," in this instance, has been put up under the direction and supervision of C. V. An> derson, Esq., Chief of the Fire Department, and . we learn that the waterworks will be tested this x day at 12 o'clock. Warehousing merchants are . invited to attend the exhibition We shall send a reporter, and make an impartial report of the facts. Insurance companies may do likewise. l* Daniel Webster's Views on the River and J* Harbor Question ?The Hon. Daniel Webster's *" letter to the Chicago River and Harbor ConvenB* tion, detailing his views on the river and harbor 119 question, is published in full in the Chicago re papers, and occupies some four or five columns. e- ; __ J i _ II r _ . r. ? n is maae up principally 01 extracts irom spescnes le delivered by him in and out of Congress, during e" a long series of years, and reiterates the constitutionality of the measure. We published, a faw days ago, his first letter on the same subject, n~ which may be considered a condensation of the 10 second one. Theatricals ' Bovrcir Theatre.?As we intimated yesterday, the le graceful little Miss H. VaUe?, the farorite danttutt, will u reoeiro a benefit at the Buwery Theatre this eTenlsg. It, An idea of the worth of this young lady may be formsd it, from the fact that fifteen gentleman of the profession, n many of whom would do honor to any stage In the counj. try. have volunteered their services for the occasion, and exerted themselves 10 have the benefit as large as possir* ble. All that is required now Is for her mends and t. admirers to do their part, and to-morrow morning the , recipient Will be mueh richer than she is to-dar. The u bill is excellent, and the cut capital. Three favorite ] comedies and a dram*, beside* other entertainments. cannot be had ewry evening In the year? l* even at the Bowery.

C- and Mile Amelle, will danoe the Hungarian Walt*. Tht drama of the " Adopted Child," and tbe comedy of the a " Dumb Belle," will conclude. There can be to doubt Ct that tbe benefit will be large.

Mlrs Phillips will aing the beautiful ballad, "la se tbe valley by the mill." She Is very muoa admired, and sings very sweetly. In faot, the company now perforate log at Caa le Oarden are so well kuowti, and have been such favorites at tbe Olympic, that their patrons will fellow them any where Tbe stage arrangements do V- credit to the manager, Mr. Baker. ht Falmo'j OrcKA Houic.?The French Ballet eom< O- Bsnce their performances at this theatre on Mondij evening.

'1 lie uext exercise wna a piece of uumIo (a march) by the hand of bliud performers?four clarionets, two haw burns and two trombone* A chorus. " I dream of mil things free," was sung by till the pupls The pupil* of the elaaa in Philosophy were then examined and gave proof of tolerable proficiency. * The nixth performance was a liuet, " O lovely Peace," by two young ladiea, M1m K. King and Miss M. McMaiiua Nevt in order waa a minuet, from Walsh, performed by the band ot bliud boys. A class in rhetocrie was examined by Mian Sweetlaud. one of the young ladies eugaged In the instruction of the pupils. Then a lad only 14 years of age, named tt. Kanlski, entertained the audience by performing upon the piano i one of Herz's intricate compositions While Master I Kaniski waa playing, a proleesor of muslo looked over a | printed copy of the piece, and at the conclusion, pro| uouueed the performance accurate, with only a blight exception. A quick step by the band followed, alter which, Miss Cynthia bullock, formerly a pupil and now a teacher iu the institution, came forward and delivered au address In poetry. We give the concluding lines as a specimen " Vet there's a theme, a favored theme: How seems it like a fairy dream? May it not be ! Oh, bliss untold, A Press to us its wealth unfolds. And books, increasing books, display Their charms to cheer life'a lonely way! Then grant the wish, the humble prayer, Ye who in other's joys would share. And find how sweet, when time id flown, The fragrance of the flowers then strown." MUs Frances J. Crosby, al-o one of the graduates of the institution, came forward and delivered a poetical address, which, lik* Miss Bullock's, was original. A few lines la all we have room for:? " Na more the sigh* less wrap alone; Hope spreads aloft her mighty wings And hovers o'er our happy home. How sweetly break* the choral lay, From hearts that long with grief were riven ' Those thrilling tone* are borne away And echoed in the oourU of Heaven.''

Oh, there are flower* of heavenly birth, By angel hands to mortals given, * If guarded tenderly on earth. i Will wear a richer bloom in Heaven." Mr. J. F. Chamnchlaiiv, the Superintendent, and h s assistants, then illustrated to the uudieaoe the manner in which arithmetic, geography, be., are taught. The exercises in arithmetic are of a novel character; instead of using the ordinary figures, or Arabic characters, they use the letters T^V and L, which bear different values according to their position; as. for instance, T represents one; x represents three; V stands for five; 1 A for seven, <cc. fco. There are other transpositions which cannot well be represented by common types. With these figures the bllud pupils will solve any ordl- I nary arithmetical problem with the greatest facility. 1 The maps used by the blind are marked in outline by ( ridges, and the places are designated by raised letters. 1 The Chelsea Maroh was then played by the band, after t wnlch the pupils joined In a chorus, "How joyful is the | morning." t A class in history was next examined, and their an- t swers displayed a thorough aoqualntanoe with history, < particularly the history of the middle ages, on which i they dwelt at considerable length. I The next exercise introduced Mr. Robert Elder, a . graduate, and now a teacher of musie in the Institution, 1 who performed upon the piano a concerto in ? minor, i cornpo ed by himself. < Solo and chorus, -'Rest, spirit, rest," by the choir, was | next given; after which A ohm* was examined on the constitution of the Uni- i ted States. Satisfactory evidence was afforded, that the pupils well understood the subject , An aria ''Angels ever bright and fair," accompanied by the organ, was next in order, and then came The examination of the pupil* in the theory of music. And here it was that the wonderful effect of enlightening the mind of the blind was apparent in the greatest degree. It was positively wonderful to witness the proficiency of some of the pupils in mu*ioal science. The lad Kanlski, who seems to be a sort of musical prodigy, gave evidenoe of greater proficiency in music, especially iu the detection of sounds, than persons are apt to be lieve can be attained The severest tests seemed to be but matters of amusement to him. He readily answered the questions put to him, and won the greatest applause by his ready and aocurate replies to the most intricate queries He is certainly a wonderful boy. The premiums were next awarded, and then The MAVoa came forward, and addressod a few words to the pupils. He was brief, but spoke to th* purpose; expressing, in behalf of himself and the audience, the gratification afforded by the present occasion, and eoneluding with wishing the pupils happiness, Stc Mr. (JHAMBKRLtin, the superintendent, then addressed in turn the audience, the managers of the institution, and hi* pupils His parting words to those who were about to leave the institution were touching, and we observed more than ono sightless orb suffused, a* he affectionately alluded to the honrs of kindly intercourse which they had enjoyed, and when, at last, be said farewell. the stillness which pervaded the room, and the perfectly motionless forms upon the stage, told more eloquently than words oould have done how deeply the blind pupils felt the import of their friend's words. The exercises were couclud?d by a chorus, ' The multitude of angels," In which all tbe pupils Joined. CUy Intelligence.

L Ward School No. U.?An examination of the pupils of this school took place yesterday, belore a select audience, consisting principally of ladies?and the answering of tbe pupils in tbe various departments was highly creditable lx>th to themselves and their teachers About 1000 scholars attend this sohool? both male and female ?and the pupils are instructed, la addition to the ordinary branches of a pound English education, in Latin, French, music, and in all the hlgberbranobes. Several of tbe pupils in their snrwerlng. both in the minor and advanced classes, would have done credit to any of our leading seminaries, and show the advanced and improved system of scholastic education, as adopted at present in our ward sohools. The appearance ofthe pupils, too, their hexltliful looks, tbe order and regularity that prevailed, the neatness of the building, and tbe thorough ventilation?show the care and attention paid to the pupils In this essential point. Tbe Connty Superintendent, W. A. V' wlker, fc>q., was the examiner on the occasion. Mr W. Kennedy is prlnoipal of tbe sohool. These examinations, conducted publicly, must have an excellent effect amongst the pupils, and create an emulation which is always atUnded with good results.

The buildings and grounds were In a state pa of cleanliness and neatness, highly oreditable to the su- fee periutendent and resident physician, and to their subor- fai dina'es do Tho health of the inmatea of the alms house has not suffered to any particular extent by the prevailing sick- or ness within the establishment. The cases of ship fever lu in the hospital are comparatively few, and it* serious eu mortality has been arrested. pa In mauy of the wards we found a large majority of the ' I patients recovering, many of them having lett their beds; Ci while in the tents upon the groen, in tront of the hoxpl- s& tal, a still more gratifying state of tblnga existed. Under tu its preaent manngement, by the energy and skill of the ea realdent physician, tl.is hospital haa been ao much lin- tr proved within a snort time, that the grand Jury are re- ac hnr i*nv annr?h<imloni> in rcsard to the nrevailinir an sickness ; the only severe cwei being those of reoent tin- up migrant*, who huve been landed at Quebee and have oc been sent from that place to t li city in great numbers, at having their travelling expenses paid. qi The geaud jury feel called upon to suggest that the windows of the wards should be furnished with blind*, pe to protect the sick from the full light of the sun, which, tb at this season of the year, has been found oppressive; ot which blinds wonld be tar superior to th<> temporary fr awnings that have been furnished to a portion of the pi windows. ui The grand jury prooeeded to Blackwell'g Inland, ac- wl companied by the commissioner, siiperintondent and w resident physician, all of whom rendered every facility bi in their power for a thorough investigation of every department. Bi The penitentiary is ingoodoondition m respects clean- en lines* and discipline, and ao far as we had opportunity at to observe, in all respects satisfactory. Km hospitals are <;, under thd government of the resident physician at Belle- ta vue, one of his assistants being in constant attendance rt The female department especially is in cxoellent ooudi- ec tlon. m Forty men and one hundred and twenty women were R. found In these hospitals a The nurseries were next visited, where 906 children, bi mostly orphaus, are provided tor by the olty. They are tli well fed end clothed, daily gathered into school* under ce charge of the Public .school 8< oiety. and appear to bo *n kindly oared for by the officer* of the department. A m 1 *rif?! number were found In the hospital, and the pro- m portion of the dl*ea*? of the eyes among these hauls** ill little ones, was a sad subject to oontemplaie The grand ry jury cannot too strongly urge the importance of mime oi dlate measures to separate these in dimnot apartments pa from all other diseases, and especially from all ooiniuu ui nlcation with the healthy. g* Next in order, the new Alms House on the island was flt examined, in which four hundred paupers are provided of for, beluR chietiy the surplus population of Bellevue A Here a large proportion are sick, and are placed in the di upper looms of (be building.

Tbe department is kept In cor- w responding good condition wilb ihe other departments ol lb* new wing of the building is in progress, and is gnat- pi ly needed. b The grand jury, ther?fore, report, as far as their eg- 01 ami nation, comprising one day'a observation and en- |i qulry would iiive tbuin opportunity, that, with the ex k captions a''ove named the several departments ai*e in a h highly satisfactory condition, and the offlm rs merit the ti public confidenoe.

In the Monday weekly meeting of the nclliatlon Hall section of llepealers of the 31st, a let' wait read from Hev. VV. Higgini, K.

Orattan and O'Connell both were the advooates d successful,in obtaining measures of freedom for tbeir iratry; but more remains,a mightier labor to be aocoushe J,even the regeneration of a people's nationality.

O'Brien, M. P., John O'Connell, M. I', Henry attan, M. P., ice. &.c. The reacons for its change of me and the objects of the meeting, will be best un'stood by the following extract trout the report of its nmittee that the constitution of tbuir body should be difled, "That the hopes formed of tbeir former repreitatives had been totally disappointed. The conduot Ihe Irtah representatives bid been again characterd by a want of unity of action and by a subserviency that politloa! expediency whiuh has so often rendcrthe interests of Ireland subservient to those of party, the meantime famine acd disease has-spread desoian throughout the land.
