This, if the returns prove to be correct, exhibits a whig gain of seven, and we have not yet heard from all the districts in which elections took place on the 2d and 5th inst. According to the returns already received, the whigs are in the ascendancy, in spite of the calculations of the democrats. It ia not wholly> however, with the calculations that we have now to do ; it is with the complexion of the next House of Representatives, by these returns. The democrats depended upon holding their own in these States as well as others which will hold their elections in September and October, but thus far they have lost ground considerably. These tew States have already probably de ciueu me question, it is now pretty certain that the whigs will have a majority in the next House. That majority will be pretty large, if the democrats continue lo lose ground at the same rate in the States which are yet to elec?, as they have in those which have elected. The government of the United States will, in I this aspect of the elections now coming over the lightning line, be composed of ademocratic Pre. ] sident, a deinocratico-whigo-conservative Se- I nate, in which the conservative wing, with John J C. Calhoun at the head, will hold the balance of | power, and a whig House of Representatives.? q Such a heterogenous combination of parties is c rarely found,but we doubt not that it will conduce to the welfare of the country, although it wilj c in all probability cause more squabbling next h winter in the halls of Congress than was ever a witnessed in Washington. a It will put Mr. Calhoun in a very commanding v situation. He will hold a power almost as great h as that vested in the Chief Magistrate ; for t his ipte dixit in his place in the Senate, will r carry or reject a measure that may have pass- Y ed the House of Representatives. The moral g power of his position will be tremendous. I The next session of Congress will, therefore, be one of the greatest interest. i The Lut ITtwi from Mexlca_Js Gen. Scott In 1 the City of Moilro J_Trl?t'? Mixtion The last report from tbe seat of war is not generally believed. The dates, distances, &c., &c., are too much at variance with each other. But alter all, it is only a mistake in dates and distances; for whether this particular news "e possession of the City of Mexico, or a suspension of hostilities has occurred; for long before this, Bome answer must have been given by the Mexican Congress to the peace propositions which Mr. Trist was authorised to offer on the part of the American government. If such answer was unfavorable to peace, Gen. Scott is not the man to remain penned up in Puebla an hour longer than he could avoid, and in such case has,without doubt, ere this, marched to the capital and taken possession of it. If, on the contrary, those propositions were accepted, the war may be said to be at an end. The next arrival from Vera Cruz will without doubt inform us rightly on the subject, and at the same time decide the accuracy of the late exciting rumors from the seat of war. What will be done after the arrival of General Scott in the Mexican capital, should he go there 1 Has Mr. Trist the power to make a treaty with the Mexicans] WV havp fallen nnmp rutin* tn nilt th?? nilhlir right in respect to the authority with which Mr. Trist was vest *d by the administration on his departure for Mexico. We now state that he was clothed with full power to conclude a treaty such as would be acceptable to our government; and, for this purpose, a treaty, already prepared, was placed in his possession the day he left New Orleans to fulfil his mission. In case this treaty hould be rejected by the Mexicans, Mr. Tmt was further empowered to state to the Mexicans that his government, anxiously disposed to avoid further bloodshed, was desirous of taxing the initiative in every step that had a tendency to peace ;and in case of the terms of the treaty that he had in his pocket not proving acceptable to the enemy, to offer on the part of the United States for the Mexican government to appoint one or more commissioners of high rank to meet one or more American commissioners at Jalapa or Havana, to agree upon a treaty tha1 would be acceptable to both parties. This is the sum and substance of Mr. Trial's authority; this is nothing more *r less than what he was authorized to do by Its government. Thus, it appears that the onus of the continuance of the war will be thrown entirely on the Mexicans. Weoffertomake a peace at once, and for this purpose, Mr. Trial has a treaty aireaay arawn up, reaoy tor signature II tnis will not do, our government is ready to appoint commissioners, and arrange the whole in a fair way. Now, what will the Mexicans do? Will they agree to a peace? If they do not, Mexico will most assuredly lose her nationality. In a day or two, we will in all probability hear some exciting news from the scene of operation!. See telegraphic report on the third page. Later from Venezuela.?We are in receipt of the Caracas Liberal of the 17th ultimo, but there is nothing of interest in it. The editor draws the attention of his renders and the government to the memorial of Senor Andres E. Level, on the formation of a railroad between the city of Barcelona and its sea-port, and which he recommends as of the utmost importance. Quite a lengthy discussion is goiug on in Caracas as to the legality of the establishment of a branch of the British Colonial Bank there, and the damages 'the republic stffler from such an establishment. ? 1847.

Vary truly youra, BROAD STREET. It is right that the village Postmaster should charge three cents, because fee is ordered to do so by Cave Johnson; but the Postmaster General has no right to order the deputy master to charge the subscriber of a newspaper with the extra postage complained of by " Broad Street." Since Cave Johnson came into power, the Postoffice law has been one thing, and the Postmaster another; und we hope that all those who are daily suffering from the present mail arrangements, will bear in mind the amount of their sufferings when t^ie time comes to vote tor the next President. We hold to th* opinion, that any person who will retain such an individual as Cave Johnson in the Post Office Department, is unfit to be President of the United States. New York a.nd Paris Express?The newly established express between New York and Paris, planned and conducted by Messrs. Livingston and Wells, is now in successful operation, und will much to thf? rnnvenience of tllC people of both countries. We have concluded arrangements with the proprietors, by which they have undertaken to express the Herald for Europe from Cherbourg, the place of landing, to Paris, in advance of the mail, thus making our journal the first to carry American news to the people of Europe. We do not know of any recent enterprise which bids fair to be more useful to our city than this newly-established express between this city, Havre, and Paris. Our hatters, milliners, bootmakers, furniture dealers, and small jobbers and retailer*, can, through it, import what they may need in their respective avocations, on their own account and in such quantities, large or small, as they may require, with the advantage of having everything in season and in the shortest time. Their arrangements to ensure punctuality and despatch, are perfect. They have already sent out a competent person to act as their agent in Paris, who will give his personal attention to all orders entrusted to the firm, and such parcels as may be directed to this country will be under his personal charge from the time they are delivered to him until they are on board the steamer; and after they reach here, Messrs. Livingston & Wells will give them equal attention and despatch. The enterprise of the universal Yankee nation is great. Items From Cuba-?We are in receipt of files of the Aurora dt Matanzas to the 31st ult. The news is not of importance ; we subjoin, however, a few items from the outports. At St. Jago de Cuba the weather had been oppressively warm?from the 12th to the 17th July, :here had been exported thence 594,414 lbs. sugar, >1,1874 lbs. coffee, 1700 lbs. cocoa, 1690 tons copier, and other articles of various kinds in small luantities. During the same period, $26,526 luties had been taken in. At Puerto Principe, provisions, such as rice, :om, &c., were scarce and dear. A public liirary had been established at Puerto Principe, nd SenorC. D. Gaspar de Betancourt had prelented it with 500 volumes. A splendid theatre vas to be built by a joint Btock company, which lad already raised $8000. 200 emigrants from he Canary Islands had lately arrived. One Selor Castro y Rarcelo, a phrenologist, seems to lave made a great impression on the Cubanos jenerally, as we find him spoken of at Cienfujos, Santa Clara and Santa Espiritu. The town of Villa Clara was to be lighted at light by 50 lamps, on the 1st instant, and they ire to be increased to 150. It is not mentioned whether gas or oil is to be used. At Cienfuegos 164 vessels entered from the 1st January to 30th June?in all 26,343 tons; and 138 left it?in all 21,932 tons. Muno News.?A letter, copied from the Zanesville (Ohio) Courier, and dated " Castle of Loretto, July 14," is now having a pretty general circulation, apparently giving an account of the march of the American army to the city of Mexico. It happens to be an account of the march of our forces to Puebla, the particulars of which have already been a dozen times published. Capturk op a Slaver.?Capt. Clarkson, of the Bhip Woodside, from St. Helena and Canton, arrived yesterday, says that H. M. brig Water Witch captured on the 12th of June last, 700 miles W. S. W. from Ambriz, an American brig having " Beulah" of Portland, on her stern, in large white letters. No colors or papers on board. On the log slate was written Captain Forsyth. The crew were all Brazilians. She had on board 508 live and 2 dead slaves. Was sent to Sierra Leone for adiudication. The Beulah waa 8 days out from the coast between river Congo and Ambasetre. She has been more than a year to our knowledge trading between the coast of Africa and Rio Janeiro, and it is fair to suppose that during thnt time she has been engaged in this horrible traffic. Steamship Southerner came in from Charleston yesterday morning, in a passage of fifty-seven hours, nearly ten hours in advance of the mail. Intelligence from Rarbadobs.?We have received a file of the Barbadoea Mercury and Olobe, from the 2d to the 19th of July, inclusive, from which we extract the following items. The price of augar at Georgetown was, at the last accounta from there, below the average price of the laat eight yeara. In consequence thereof the merchants complain sadly of the new tariff. The Mercury of the 9th, says that Thirteen day* have passed away since we dispatched our last luminary, and we are found in almost the same Hituatton, and in want of rain. There have been a few light showers throughout the island. On the afternoon of the 7th, very refreshing showers fell, and the spirits of the people were enlivened, Or* at aotivity ha* since been displayed in planting, and the fields have been studded with " operatives," putting in potato slips and ami P?r*on? who deal with the weather " calculate" upon a continuance of rain on the 12th, when a new moon will visit ua In a few placet the young canes have died, and ?ome evince unfavorable symptoms. but an a whole, 'peaking of the erop an a crop, we have to report favorably Thin la accountable, from the fact alone of, the superiority which mark* the field Operations of the planter, and the protection afforded tha roolg of the oane bj the trash The Mercury Htatea the following relative to the agriculture ofBardadoea. :?

By the lutU-r bowing there is a clear gain of >44, with lood always ready ?t command ; and by the former, a loss of $44 dollar* without a morsel of food to be reapt. Fbom Halifax ?Brig Halifax arrived yesterday, Irmn HiiIiIhx, huving nailed on the 4tli inst. No report is made of the arrival there of the Britannia from this port, although It is presumed that she had arrived and departed for Liverpool. Blr John Harvey, the Kleut. Governor of the provlnoe, arrived from At. John, N. B., on the 3d.? Hititon Courier, 10. It is said that in the darkness of 5eed% night a small vessel was run down by the Bay State, and Ft Is feared that all on board perished. The boat carried no tight, and henae the accident. Theatrical*. Fin Thmim.?" Linda" was performed at the Park ifilg tart event of, to a food audience Md'me Bishop nag well, and was rewarded aa oaoat, with the warm tat testimonials of approval.

On TburMav night we are to waleomdher m Amlaa, in "La Somnambula." To-night, Mri. <>eo. Jones, Mr. Hield, and Mr. W B Chapman, appear In the comedy of the u Lore Chaae," and the farce of u A Kiss in the Dark," both of which pieoes are well eaat and cannot fall to attraot a good house, weather permitting. Bowcav TuiiTti.?If there waa any need of drawing the attention of the publio to the attractions offered at the Bowery Theatre, we might do so, but It la unnecessary, inasmuch as It la crowed to overflowing every night. We must, however, remind the numerous admirers of Miss Turnbull, that the young lady's engagement does not last beyond two nights more after this evening. She will appear to-night In her favorite character, the Naiad Queen, In the grand spectacle of that name. In addition to the muoh admired comedy of " Bamboozling,'' the nautioal drama, " Black Eyed Susan" will be performed. Chatham THEATae.?The celebrated travestle ef " Hamlet," which has been reeeived with unmlstakeable evidence of pleasure by crowded houses, will be repeated this evening to, no doubt, aa large an audience as this theatre has contained since it passed Into the hands of ol Mr. Fletcher The performances will oommence with the petite comedy, "Naval Engagements," to be followed by the travestieon " Hamlet," and to oonclude with the ryn? nf ih? "MmnihuH." In the traveatie and in the concluding piece, Mr. Brougham, the celebrated Irish aotor, will perform, and all who have noon him in the " Omnibus" are aware how well he aots the part of I'at Iteoney. The bill is excellent, and will draw an excellent house. Pilmo'i 0reR4 House.?When we announced, on Saturday last, that the Lehman family was re-engaged for another week, we did not know that another company had hired the house from the 13th, (to morrow morning.) We therelore announoe to our readers that tonight is the last performance of the well appreciated dancernaud pantomfcnistsof this favorite coinpuny, and that M'lle Adelaide will take her benefit on the occasion. This is sufficient to attract a full house at 1'almo'H. and we do not hesitate to predict for her a brilliant reception. Such modesty, grace, and such scieuce an she possesses are appreciated by all the amateurs of ballet. The performance will begin with rope dancing by MM. Winther and Christian Lehman, and the two pantomimes of' Le Diable Rouge," and 'Mr. Decbalumeau." The benefit eiart will display the prettiest of her pat, as* isted by her oharming sisters and the graceful M Schmidt. We are happy to announce that MM. and M'lles Lehman re-appear next week at Castle Garden, together with the excellent vaudeville company now playing at that plaoe. The stage is to be enlarged and lowered; In short, every thing will be prepared for their merited sucoess. Caitlk Garden.?This evening the amusements commenoo with an overture, after which the comic opera of''Brother and Sister," which will be followed by a Pat dt Deux by the Misses Wells; and the performances will oonclude with the vaudeville of " The Rendezvous," in which Holland, Walcot, Kverard, Arnold, Levere, the Missei Clarke and rhillips, and other members of this exoellent company, will appear. The proprietors are indefatigable in their exertions to oater for public amusement, and we are happy to say, they are wen BUBinneu oy ? uiBcriuiiunLiiiK |n>u|ut>. ?? ?i<j mformed they have, At very great expense, engaged the Krench ballet company who are now at Palmo's This troupe have become great favorites, and deservedly ho, for, with the charming danseutr, Adelaide, and her equally talented sinters?the incomparable Charles Wlntber, the Magnus Apollo of rope daucurs?the truly comic clown, Christian Lehman, and Mr. Schmidt, the moit graceful finished artist in ihe science of Terpsichore we have ever seen?there is no company in their line can equal them. This galaxy of talent, in addition to the excellent vaudeville company now playing at Castle Garden, will be sure to draw thousands every evening next week to this delightful and refreshing location.? They open on Monday evening next. If attraction of this character do not fill the benches of this theatre, we don't know what will. The stage is being enlarged, and every thing so arranged, as to enable the ballet company to produoe their best pieoes. Great Novelty:?We are Informed the renowned Holland family, who have been so much pralsrd by the European press, have arrived, and will perform in this city, in a tew days. W. A. Barnes, the great pantomist, is to be the direotor of the troupe. This & the gentleman who was wrecked off Duck Island, U. S? last May. This oompany will certainly suooeed, as they are said to out-do any similar performance. The Boston Theatre (Federal street) will, wo are informed, positively open on the 16th Inst., nnder the management of Mr. Thorne. The members of the company dramatii/ue are to meet In the green roam on the 13ih Inst. Good things are in store at the Boston theatre, and will be brought forward in good time. The Viennoise Children are dancing in Albany. JMMICIU* The Huoiir.s Family.?The first musioal entertainment of Masters and Miss Hughes was given at Niblo's Saloon last evening. The perform abcps were varied, and those who attended will not soon forget the agreeable impression made by Master D. E. Hughes, the harpist. He touohes the strings of his instrument as if by instinct. The most intricate passages soem but pastime for him, and at pleasure he throws a pathos and a sweetness Into the music he discourses, that completely melts his lis' teners and carries them away enraptured at his lovely strains. His brother, a mere lad, plays the violin with a degree of skill which, in one so young, gives promise certainly of great prospective excellence. The little girl, a little prattling ohlld as yet, sings prettily, but her voice Is not adapted to so large % room as the Baloon at Niblo's. The performances of the boys, however, more than compensate for any deficiency that Is observable In the bill. Mr. Ntblo ought to be well repaid for his enterprise in engaging the Hughes family at his very pretty and comfortable saloon. Police Intelligence* Charge of Conivirary to Defraud?.A complaint was made yesterday, before Justice Drinker, by Henry Johnson, keeper of a livery stable in Duane street, near Church, against two men called Jackson and Mead, on a charge of oonsplrlng together to defraud the said Johnson of $1800. it appears that Jackson, on or about of June last. Durchaxed of Johnson the horses and fcarriages comprising 'the ^livery stable, for which he paid $300 cub, and gave noted lor the balance, and until those notes were paid he gave Johnson a mortgage on the property, and agreed to allow him (Johnson) to superintend the premises until the whole of the money was paid ? However, the payments were not fulfilled according to contract, and Johnson foreclosed the mortgage; and no sooner was this done than Jackson caused the property to be replevlned by Mead, upon a mortgage given by him to the said Mead, dated three days previous to the one held by Johnson, thus giving a mortgage on property before it actually came into his possession. A com table of the 5th ward arretted Jackson yesterday on the charge, and at the request of the prisoner, escorted him into Chatham street, in order to find bail, when Mr. Jackson uot finding the requisite bail handy,gave the officer " leg ball," by bolting out of a back window, making good bis escape over some baok sheds. Mead, we understand, is not yet arrested. rfrreit aj a Rich Brggar.?OtHcer Brown, of the flth ward, arrested yesterday a Dutch vagabond called Michael Lucra. very miserably clad, whom the oflioer found in Hudson street, begging of the passing citizens, under pretence of wishing to return back to Newark, N J., to where he said he belonged. On searching the rascal at the police office $.'il In bank bills was found secreted about his tattered clothing, a few billi in each spot, and likewise ?found| two Ireceipts, one for $14, and the other for $106, which sums of money had been deposited by blm with a Dutoh triend for sate keeping. The requisite affidavit was taken by Mr. Stewart, the efficient clerk of police, and Justice Drinker committed this imposture to tf months1 labor in the penitentiary,as a common vagrant. But how long he will remain there, having the above sum of money at bis disposal,remains to beseen. "Habeas Corpus'' do your duty ! .Irrett on Suipicion.?Captain MoOrath and officer McManus, of the tHh ward, arrested yesterday morning two women, called Ann .Scott, alias Tockus, and Mary Taylor, on suspicion of stealing $400 and a gold watch, bolonging to a man by the name of Thomas .YleSwingan. They were both detained for a further bearing.

Marine Hospital, Static* Island.?The weekly return of the above institution from the 3d to the 9th Inst , show* the number now lying sick with the typhu* or ship fever, and likewise deaths during the week:?Died by typhu* fever, 13; do. other diseases, 0; remaining sick with typhu* fever, 190?total number in the hospital, 699. Arrival op Emigrant Passengers.?The number of emigrant passenger* arrived at tho quarantine from foreign ports during Saturday, Sunday and Monday last, amounted to 3013, a large number of whom were sick and placed in the oare of the commiMoner of emigration. Arrival op IMarit ' Fox.?Mr. Fox arrived in town from Buffalo, yesterday morning, bringing with him hi* long lost daughter, Mary Fox, who had been (educed away from her parent* bv Martin Hare aomn three months sinco. Hare is still detained in close custody. Thk Sound Boats were late In reaching their berths yesterday; they wore all delayed by the heavy fog that prevailed all Monday and Monday night, and yesterday morning. The Norwich boat, with Adams kCo.'s express, came in early in the forenoon, and was the first to reaoh her dock. The Stonington boat arrived some two hours afterwards. The Bay State, owing to the very thick weather, which generally prevails on her route, did not reach the city until about 7 o'olock last evening. The Sound, it is said, was rough enough on Saturday night. Passengers arrived at lloston via Kail River, at 0 o'clock, A. M. on Sunday; via Stonington at 3>i, P. M., and via Norwich at 'J o'clook, A. M . on Monday. The Boston Traveller says the Norwich boat did not start till

7 o'clock on Sunday morning, and arrived at midnight. The passengers were detained on the road by an accident to the smoke pipe, which so disabled the locomotive that it took two hours to go from Allyn's Pointto Norwich, a distance of only seven miles. New Haviniku Boston Railroad.?The train over this route from Boston, arrived last evening at ti o'clook, a very quick run. Weare under obligations to Mr Dennis for copies of Boston papers some time before they were received through the mail. The nkw link ok Ommibuiei.?Hatfield and Bertine exhibited yesterday, on their new route, from Dry Dock through Houston via Bowery, Chatham and Broadway, to South Kerry, three superbly finished omnibuses, each drawn by four horses, harnessed in magnificent style. This new line has already proved of vast advantage to the public, and in the hands of the enterprising proprietors cannot fail to prove in every respeot what it was designed for. The stages attracted considerable attention and thin n?w route will mill nnnRirierfthl v to the travel along this line. Kmiuraxt*.?We observe groups of emigrants wandering through our streets in a state of apparent destitution We would remind them that the sources for employment in all quarters, both in the adjoining States and neighboring counties, are immense. The farmers, now In harvesting time almost everywhere, are calling out for additional supplies. The public works, in many of our neighboring States, offer a premium for labor. In fact, there appears to be a sort of rivalry between them, just now, for additional hands. Why should any of the emigrants linger here in idleness and destitution, when they can find abundant market for their labor in so many parti of the oountry.' Many of these poor people are destitute, and unable to go for want of means. The emigration offices should make out some grand scheme to facilitate the transit of laborers where they are most wanted, during the present season. And it should be borne in mind that many of the farmers apprehend danger to the orops in consequence of not being able to procure the requisite supply of hands. The vast additional amount of cultivation in the new soils has created this demand for labor. With the immense influx of emigrants into our ports sinoe January last, it might naturally be inferred that'a sufficient supply of laborers for ordinary purposes could be procured; but It should be understood that the classes of emigrants who have latterly flocked to our hospitable shores are different from those who preceded them generally speaking, for the last few and the previous years. Many of them are of the better classes of farmers and mechanics, and bring with them money to purchase lands and to build Under these circumstances the laborer has nothing to fear if he be able to suooeed in gaining his way to where employment can be found. We occasionally see advertisements in the difforent journals for "one thousand," "five hundred,'' 8cc.6tc., laborers for some of our public works. Many are here unable to avail themselves of the inducements held out to them, through want of means, and if the companies or parties advertising, made such arrangement as would enable the laborer to leave our city, and pay " in kind" afterwards, neither would the laborer want employment nor the contractor or farmer hands. There is an immense number of poor, though industrious and honestly disposed laborers, who would thus be relieved, and provo of advantage not only to the employer, but to the cities on our seaboard In general?not to dwell upon the relief it would afford to the poor laborers themselves, giving them a fair opening for the exercise of their industry. It is in vain to advertise in many instance* for hands, aniens some sucb plan as we suggest be adopted?for the poor laborers here are many of them without means, and thus are unable to proceed. This in itself adds considerably to the list of paupers, and fills our alms houses with such an enormous amount of paupers. iniultinn Ladies in omnibuses, as well as picking their pockets, has become quite prevalent of lute. Last night, as a lady was riding up town in one of Kipp and Brown's omnibuses, ahe was insulted by a respectably dressed fellow. Notwithstanding her remonstrances, he continued his familiarities until they arrived at the end of the route, where, it appears, the lady's husband was waiting for her?she immediately Inade known to him the fellow's conduot. The husband immediately gave chase to the fellow, and overtook him, and brought him into the stage office, where he was severely chastised, after which he was suffered to depart. Fiuf..?A fire occurred yesterday morning about 1 o'clock, at 10 Battery Place, in the basement of these premises, occasioned by the bursting of a camphine lamp.

Dr. Cochran was immediately called in, and succeeded in restoring him after two hours exertion. Ho is now doing well. Asiaui.t amd Batter*.?Dr. Oeorge W. Leaoh was arrested on a charge of violently beating his wife and daughter, the latter a beautiful girl of fifteen. It is represented as a moat outrageous and disgraceful affair. The complainant is Mr. Williams, the lady's father, who is a most respeotable resident of Poughkeepsie. The defendant was required to give bail in >300 for his appearance to answer. We understand that Mr. Williams left for Poughkeepsie in company with his daughter and grand-daughter, and has left directions for the immediate institution of a suit in Chancery for a divorce.

The court rarely takes the account between seamen and tbe sblp. and determining tbe amount due, but, as an ordinary Incident to tbe suit, tbe computation U made by the commissioner, and If a reference is not moved for by the libellant, it would ! usually be directed by the court as necessary to the com- j pletion of tbe cause Instances may occur in which this | referenoe is solely on the motion of and for the benefit of i tbe respondent, the oiaim of the libeliant being deflnitlrely proved by his prooft on the hearing In such cases the court would always modify the common order, I making it one on behalf of the respondent, and perhaps adding, also. In summary cases, that the extra costs created should be defrayed by him. This is within tbe spirit of rule 171. The present was probably a proper . case for such a qualification of tbe general order, had It been asked for at the time tbe order was granted. Upon tbe minutes the order appears to have been made and taken in the usual way, and under suoh circumstances. It is clear, in m7 judgement, that the libeliant Is only entitled to a single bill of oests, and tbat in summary aotlons is limited te $13, exclusive of disbursements. The reference, like an assessment, by the clerk or jury of inquiry in common law oases, becomes Incident to the cues, and to be oharged for as an item in the general costs. There la nothing in these proceedings justifying iny excepting tbem from tbe general rule, and accordingly the exception to tbe bill aa extra and independent of tbe bill must be allowed.

The truth is that the publication of the reports of the Board of Health aDneared to us nuite sufficient for the information ofthe public It Is not pretended that the disease hu yet become epidemic, which to our minds is rather singular than otherwise, considering the unusual number exposed to the effect of our climate. The immigration to this port this year has been unusually heavy; the passengers are of the poorer sort, and verv many upon their arrival here have been afflicted with fevers and other diseases. We have besides a large number of people on their Return from the army, wno have not yet left the oity. These classes are exposed to all the extremes of our elimate without adequate protection. They are ill fed, and ill clad, and wori>e lodged. They suffer from such extremes of heat as we may have, and are often not sheltered from the cold damps of the night. They are generally reckless and imprudent, and we have thought our city blessed Indeed, in that the mortality has thus far been so light. Upon inquiry at the Charity Hospital yesterday afternoon, we learned that in the twenty-four hours prior to 3 o'clock, P. M , there had been forty admissions Into the Hospital of various diseases. During the same time there had been five deaths of yellow fever. When it is considered that a large number of cases sent to the Hospital are quite hopel<as before they are sent there, this mortality is remarkably small. We conversed yesterday with the Rev. Mr. Mullen, who from his pious ministrations is apt to be well informed as to the state of health among the poor. He toid us that in all his congregation he had as vet seen but three cases of decided vellow fever, onlv one of which proved fatal. The medical gentlemen with whom we have conversed speak of a few casea of fever in private practice; nom call them easy cases of acclimating fever, others speak of them as yellow fever. But the the case* are not numerous, nor are they obstinate and fatal. They are generally, too, among those moat exposed to the extremities of the weather, and ill prepared by their habits and ciroumstances toenoounter disease As yet we have bad no excessively hot weather,?nd an unwonted succeoslon ef showers. With due attention to the general cleanliness of the city, and rigid care of themselves on tho part ot the unaccllmated, we have strong hopes that we shall escape an epidemic.?Ncu> Orltant Picayune, lit inst. Ship Fever in Canada.?Accounts of scenes like the following, recorded in the Quebec Mercury ,of the Oth inst., remind one of the graphio descriptions of plague sceuus, reoounted both by novellists and true historians :?" While writing in our office this afternoon, we were favored witB^i visit from the lleverends (ieo. Mackie, and Dr. Cook, who requested us to accompany them to the enclosure of the English cathedral. Arrived there, we found a poor woman stretched on the grass, suffering from intense typhus. Hei name is Pinkerton. She is an emigrant of last year,has been in service, and now, consequently, denominated a resident. -She fell ill ; was sent to the Marine Hospital, and refused admittance, and brought up from thenoe in a caieche to be set down " in some part about the middle of the town!" She was, however, taken to a house in Cham plain street, where she remained during two days, when the people of the house became alarmed, and sent her to where we saw her, confided to the consideration of the Rev. Oeo. Mackie, who cannot, of course, reoi-ive her int* his own dwellingIndeed, why should he ? What now is to become of her, and many other unfortunate people similarly situated ? for we could cite other cases of equally painful nature, which we have up to this time suppressed." The Mercury remarks " Shall the people of Quebec be branded as inhuman and as lost to all compassion ? Let us meet together, as we have often before done, when a ball, a raoe, or a public emergency of any kind oommended itself to our consideration, and not only devise measures, but at once aid by our own personal exertions and our purses, in carrying them into immediate effeot." Tut- \\7.?.-?n lU mLrm.linn of the many friends of these unfortunate >ojnt' men. we have been allowed to publish the following extract of a letter received by A. H. Sanders of tbla city, from K. B.
