Th' steamship Hibernia will leave Boston lor I Liverpool on Monday next, and the French ! vteamship Philadelphia will leave this city on j Sunday morning, at 8 o'clock, fi>r Cherbourg. The mail# for each will close here on Satur- j day, those for the Hibernia at half-past 5 o'clock, and those for the other at 6 o'clock. The Herald for Europe to go by these vessels, will be ready at 12 o'clock. It will contain a compend ot all matters that have occurred on this sid- of the Atlantic since the sailing of the last steamship, including accounts of the markets? o< rmnn?the latest news from the seat of | war, and correspondence from nil parts of the conntrr, la accordance with the announcement we I made a few days since, the Herald for Europe, per the French steamer, will contain a nummary of Americnn news printed in French, for the benefit of such as cannot understand English. If my news of importance should reach us after 12 and before 3 o'clock, it will be given in a second edition to go in the Philadelphia. Single copies in wrappers sixpence each. Til* Weekly Herald. The Weekly Herald will be ready to-morrow morning at nine o'clock, and will be a history of the world for the week preceding. Nothing of interest that will have transpired up t<> the hour of publication, will lie omitted in it. The markets in this and other cities will receive due attention, as well as the crops throughout the country. Besides, it will contain the usual quantity of commercial, financial, political and miscellaneous news. It will be embellish- I ed with a view of Saltillo, in Mexico, drawn by an officer of the American army, on the spot. Single copies 04 cents each. Onm Steam NavigaUMu.Earope and America j The benefits to the who'e civilized world, which were predicted to follow the successful experiment of ocean steam-navigation, have now commenced taking effect, and are participated in by tho nations of the old world as well as by those of the new. To the United States these benefits will be, and are of incalculable advantage. We have been brought within a fortnight ^ail of Europe?and people ot ainereni longues are drawn into juxtaposition, and mingle together as member* of one great fa.nily. The advantages which we at present derive from ocean steam-navigation, are insignificant when compared to those thm *kre yet to come. Ocean steam-navigation is yet to penetrate the China seas, and make the millions of inhabitants of the great East our near neighbors. The waters of the Pacific have ere long, to hear on their bosom the marine engine and the stately and majestic steamship, laden with the productions of Asia. The marts of ' trade in America are ere long to be frequented with the long-queued Chinese, and the people of America are to hobnob in the caf^s of the furthermost town in India. If the United State? will gain by this revolution, so will the nations o/ Europe. Hitherto estranged from each other, and from the continent of America, distance between them is, comparatively speaking, annihilated. What was considered at one time an undertaking of the most serious and perilous kind?requiring preparation for weeks and months before hand, is now reduced to an excursion, rather to be coveted than dreaded by their inhabitants. Europeans have become acquainted with the republican people of America, who tried and successfully carried out a magnificent experiment in the government of man. They are drawn into close connexion with a nation of free and independent sovereigns, who glory and delight in a government of their own making, and which they can alter or amend without the intervention of hireling soldiery, or the danger of revolution and disaster. The contact cannot but be advantageous to the people of Europe? they will to a certain extent share in the benefits conferred upon ourselves by American institutions and p?Iitics. In order to hasten this agreeable state of things, the /few York Herald has determined to ns? what little influence it may have, by giving in every number of the Herald for Europe which will be conveyed to the continent of Europe by the French steamships, American line, of which the Washington is one; and by the Prussian line, which are about to be built, and which are intended to ply between N'ew York and Oluc-kst tdt, a summary of American news in the French language, from the sailing of one veisel to that of another. In this way the minds of the people of both hemispheres will b?* brought into direct contact, and they will converse with each other in their own peculiar vernacular That this enterprise wiJJ confer vast benefits on tbe people of the two continents there can be no question, and ns we are determined upon doing oar part of the work, we begin this new piece of newspaper enterprise in the Herald for Furopr, which we shall send by the French steamship Philadelphia, to sail on Sunday morning The world has recently entered upon a new stage of existence The theories and fallacies of past ages have to din*ppe*r before the influence of practical knowledge, and the^nan is living who will see mighty revolutions in the old vrorld, brought about by the influence of American institutions. The power of the press is without limit?so is that of steam. Neither of them has yet reached the culminating point of ita influence?when they shall, the great declaration that all men nrc created free and equal will be the political creed of all men, of all nations, of all tongues. Skwkra?k i he Delays in the Work.?We are delighted to see evidence of a desire on the part of our Common Council-to build sewer* and drains to carry off the dirt and filth which must nece^arily accumulate in a city ho large as ours. Nothi i r wijl oonduee more to the general health, j it we would put it to the members nod to the co .tractors, if it would not be more satisfactory to the public that the work should be carried on with a little more alacrity than it is.? Maiden lane, Fulton and John streets, three of the principal thoroughfares in the business part of the city, have been blocked up Borne weekB past; and unless they be speedily made passable for carts and wagons, great and irreparable injury will be inflicted on innumerable merchants and storekeepers. W? would also suggest to them the policy of not tearing up one street until the drain of another is finished, for, as in the case of the lower part of the city at present, great injury is inflicted on people of business. Tne fall trade is now commencing, and merchants are prevented from huvmg access by carts to the boats and shipping, causing much inconvenience and no small amount of actual loss. To the contractors, we suggest the propriety of hurrying as much as possible. Surely they can get on with the work on hand much faster than they do. We think it would be advisable in future contracts, to make the parties stipulate to finmta tbeir >vork hi the shortest tirne possible. ?? I _1M Tk* N*w Packm Ship W**t Pom.?We 1 camot allow a vessel, having so much claim to ; elegance as the West Point, to leave our poit | without some notice. She belongs to Robert , Hermit's line of Liverpool packets, and will take j bar departure on her first voyage thia morning, ; with an immense freight list, and a fair pre- 1 portion of passenger*. The We*t Point was lutilt by Messrs. Weeter- I velt and Mackay, of the very best materials, strongly fastened with copper, iron, and tree nails- and in point of strength, convenience, and beauty of model, cannot be surpassed by any of our packets. The arrungements of her cabins, pariiculaily for the second class passengers, are excellent. The only vessel ihat can compare with her, in this respect, is the new ship Isaac Wright. The main cabin is chaste and elegantly decorated, furnished with the most expensive polished mahogany, and varied with white enamel work. The furniture is rich, and well arranged Iler state rooms are very large and airy. The improvements throughout this noble vessel are very numerous, and show that they were suggested by experience, taste, and judgment. She measures 1100 tons burthen, 170 feet in length, and is 37 feet, G inches in breadth, and carries a finely moulded lull length figure of Gen. Washington. j Capt. W. H. Allen, her commander, was fori 1? 1 - al.x* (runfUmtinlv ftnH mrriy niiu iui many ycaio, mr highly esteemed captain of the packet ship Virginian. He has deservedly the reputation of being a good sailor, and ie in every respect qualified to render his beautiful vessel successful. The Rumored Movement to San Luis Potosi.?People in the South, as well as here, are continually talking of Gen. Taylor's intended movement on San Luis Potosi, and saying that he is only waiting for reinforcements to reach him to march to that place. Our telegraphic agents, too, are of the same opinion, and avail themselvea of the wires to remit these rumors to the press. We have yet to learn that it is Gen. Taylor's intention to move from where he is. We do know that no such movement is contemplated by the Government, or even by the old general himself. On the contrary, Gen. Taylor's orders are peremptory for him to remain where he is, and not stir until the effect of Gen. Scott's operations are known. A large portion of his forces was taken from him because it was considered unnecessary for him to be active while Scott was on his way to the capital. When the city of Mexico is in our possession, j and in case peace do not follow its reduction, Gen. Taylor may be directed to move from where he now is, but not until then. Military Composition.?We have been favored, by a gentleman of this city,'with the copy of a letter written by Gen. Scott to the Hon. Millard Filmore. It is said to be authentic; it is annexed:? < HEADQUARTERS OK TIIC AHMY. Mr Dcah Sir:? I ha?e received the two letters (one from* the Rev. Mr Angler, and the other signed by Mr. Van WyekJ asking, on several grounds, the discharge of James Thompson, a private or the seoond Regiment of Artillery.? 1st?He has. slncn his enlistment, reformed his habits. 1 his U ail argument in favor of his nerving out hlB time lest be should relapse, if discharged, before confirmed in his reformation?military discipline highly favors reformation. 3d.?He has become pious. This makes him at onoe a better soldier and a better man, and fortunately we are not without many pious officers and men in our ranks; but 3d?it is alleged that be baa imbibed conscientious scruples against performing military duty.? If the man be mad be can be discharged on a surgeon's certificate to that effeot?but if he has only turned cowi ard, we have ample means of punishing him If he should, when ordered, refuse to fight. 1 return the letters you enclosed, and remain, my dear sir, with great esteem, yours truly, WINFIELD SCOTT. Hon. M. Kilmork. It ia almost unnecessary to offer any comment ?n this latter; it speaks for itself. It is equal in point to the famous military order of the battle of Cerro Gordo. Sekioits Collision on ran Sound.?We give the particulars of a'collision, yesterday morning, of the Bay State and Orina, in the ship news column of the Herald. It was an unavoidable accident, and occurred in thr midst of a dense fog. Medical Intelligence. It will be gratifying to tho friends of the University of New York, and the medical profession generally, to learu that Dr. Samuel Henry Dickson, of Charleston, South Carolina, has been appointed to the Professorship of Theory and l*raotice of Medicine, vacant by the death of Dr. Revere. Dr. Dickson has held the aame professorship for twenty-live years in the Medioal College of South Carolina, one <t( th.< largest and most respectable institution* of our country, of which he was the founder. He is the author of a highly esteemed treatise on the practice of medioine, and bears a general reputation in bis profession as a brilliant and successful lecturer, and physician of extensive experience. Sporting luUUIgencei Boat Hack.?The ?nnouncement of the boat race at the Thatched Cottage, Jersey city, yesterday afternoon, drew a large attendance at that place, to witness the performances of therespectiv.' ^arsinen, Stephen Roberts and Mnedicor, In a ibr >100; the former to row the seventeen feet working boat Franeis D. Blgelow, and the latter the boat Liberty, of the same dimensions. round a stake boat achored about a mil* below Bedlow's Island, and bank to the Cottage dock.? Roberts was the favorite at two to one. But very little business was done among ''the business men," even at that odds, the universally acknowledged skill and endurance of Roberts, which have been proved in his previous successful contests with the best oarsmen in the country, keeping the pockets of bis opponentn tightly buttoned They started very evenly at tbe word, accompanied by an escort of thirtv or forty boats oi all descriptions; Hnedioor pulling as If his life depended on the load, while Roberts went off with a strong, leisurely stroke, which manifestly denoted the confidence he tail in his own ability and the light opinion he had of his adversary. After going about two miles, Roberts drew away from Snedieor. who soon after finding his ohances ont, gave up the race, and made tbe best of his way for the Kast river. Roberts Rontlnimil nn .

The diataQGf rowed la auppofwd to b? about Haven milea, and the time In which it was performed ia conaidered very good.

Mra Van Cott, the widow woman who preferred a charge aome time aince againat a certain member of the Legialature. of being tbe father of her child, waa arreated on Wednt aday by ofllcer McCormlck, on complaint of a Mra Davla, charged with abandoning her Illegitimate offaprlng From the evld?noa,it appeared that Mra Van Cott had placed the child In tbe care of Mra. Davla, and agreed to pay her a atlpul?t*d aum per week for ita anpport; but uot not being able to fatten the paternity of tbe child upon tbe aforeaaid gentleman," and being conaideraMy In arreara to Mra Davla, aba oatne to the conclualou that It would be better to paok up her duda and be off; In doing which Mra. Davla aurpriaed her. She then itateJ that the child did not beloug iu uer j uu in* ramer wouiu oui tor it in it il*7 or two, anil pay for it# maintenance, and take It away. Mri. Darts did not beliere tbi? statement. but Immediately lodged a complaint against h?r. On examination of the case, the magistrate committed her to Jail, in default of procuring baU for $600 Camt Mbbtino at Farmimodalk.?There la an immense concourse of people asNsaibled at the camp meetintf jfro und at Karmtngdalel, Hthou*h the members of the Centenery church have been prohibited from attending. An extra train went in yesterday, loaded with passengers The weather has been rather unfavorable for camp meetings, but that will not Interfere with the religious ceremonies The *tli and buslie ail orer the island is equal to that on a race day. Aiiaui.tiwo His Wire.?A man named Peter MeAvny, was arrested yesterday for assaulting his wife.and threatening, sword in hand, to run her through the body ? The identical sword waa produced in Court by the complainant. He was held to bail to keep the peace. Condition or the 8t*p?.t?.?It if really a pleasure to < walk up Fulton street, and sea the cleanliness of the < streets and side walks, thanks to the bountiful supply of i rain we have had. and not to our olty fathers, who seam ' to care rery little whether the streets are clean or not. 1 f . i _ i jlu.jlip i ftu THtAtai.?There tn raob an tudieiice at the Park iMt evanlng, a? *u In Itaalf a perfect triumph for the prima donna In the opera which waa to afford entertalnmant for the assemblage; and nobly were the pro* miaaa of bar friends fulfilled, and fall wall ware their moat sanguine hopes realised. Madame Bishop by bar performances In " La Somnambula'' seemed to complete and (oal the triumph which she had already achieved. Tha soothing softness of the music Itaelf, whan given in the melting tonea which Madame B. can so micceaafully olothe them with, all had a tendency to captivate the audience. All were enraptured, and onoa and again dor- i ing the performance was the prima donna called forward to receive the warm testimonial* of approval which she had won, and at the conclusion after twice repeating the , finalr, she waa called out, and the house waa made to ring i with the plaudits while bonqueta were teased from all aides up' >n the stage. We cauuot oomplain so much of tha manner In which Madame B. Is sustained in this opera, aa we , had occasion to In the oaae af " Linda." In " La Som- | nambula." the choruses are well gotten up, and tha short eouimgs of the tenore and bass are not so glaringly apparent. Last night, Mr. Fraiar's aria of " Still ao gently o'er me stealing,'' waa encored. In short, tha piece was ! well put upon the stage, well performed, weH patronised, well received, and so all's well no, stop ; there is one little fault to mention : Mr. Frarer might aa well have omitted, in his dialogue with Chapman in the first act, the phrase about hla " anxious motherand Mr. Chapman might, with great propriety, have omitted saying " She knows I'm out.'' We can aee no reaaon why a low comedy part should ba thus improvad. We nev?r could see the propriety of such Improvement upon authors ; but if they are ever admisalble, surely the opera is not the plaoe where they come in with good effect. But this waa a mare trifle, and did not, by any means, have the effect to materially mar the place ; and we can promise In advance that many of the faces that adorned the house laat evening will be again visible at the same place on 8aturday night, when " La tomnambula" will be given again. To-night we are to have " Linda,'' and a ooncart of aaven pieces of vooal and Instrumental music. Bowery rHr*tac.?This evening la the laat but one of Julia Turnbull'a engagement, and to-morrow craning la aet apart for her benefit?two facta that the admirers of that talented young lady and tbe patrona of tbe Bowery must bear In mind and act accordingly. Tbe bill at tbia theatre tbla evening commences with the nautleal drama " Inobcape Bell; or, the Recluse and the Rover," which will be followed by " Buy-It-Dear, 'TIs Made ef Caahmere," and ending with the drama " The Idiot ofthe Heath." It is unnecessary to praise it, for the pieoea are too well known to require It, and ao are the actora who will appear in them. Miss Turnbull's benefit to-morrow evening will be a grand affair. Miss Taylor and Mr. Clarke will appear. They, with the excellent actors and MlfS Julia's own charms, will combine to make to-morrow evening one of tbe most brilliant of tbe season. Mrs. Shaw Is engaged and will appear on Monday next. Chatham Theatre.?There was another very great audlenoe at the Chatham theatre, last evening, and tbe performances elicited as much applause as they conferred pleasure on all who had the good fortune to witness them. In common with the rest of the community, we regret that the company which has been performing bere for some evenings past will not remain here after this week, as we learn that they are under engagements to appear In Boston very soon. There Is an admirable bill issued for to-night, consisting of a ridiculously rich burlesque on Romeo and Juliet, entitled "Romeo and Ouiletta," In which Mr. Brougham will figure as Romeo. We oan safely promlae all who go to see it, a hearty laugh. The oomedy of " My Grandfather'* Will, or the Baronet in the 8team." and the oomedy ofthe "Cork Leg. or the Lady of Munster," will also be performed In ihe last mentioned pieoe, Mr. and Mrs. Brougham will both appear. Caitli Garden.?This evening the performances commence with the overture, " La Dame Blanche," after which the oomic opera of "Brother and Sister," in which Waleot plays Paoheco, and Miss Clarke, Rosantbe. Tbe Misses Wells will dance a Pas de Deux, and the amusements will conolude with the vaudeville of ' The widow's Vlotim " Mr. Waloot will, during the pieoe, give imitations of several distinguished aotors. If this oompany draw suoh fall houses, at present, what a rush there will be next week, to see tne Lehman Family. The Bowery Amphitheatre will open for the season on the 13th of September, under the management of JUUU x ijrun. Hnilctl. Minerva Rooms.?The original'.Virginia Serenaders comraenoe a series of ooncerts at the above rooms on Monday evening next. They have been playing at the Chesuut itreet theatre, Philadelphia, to crowded and fashionable audlenoes. Madame Ablamowici 1b to gire concerts in Cincinnati in Ootober next. Mrs. Watson the well known vocalist, accompanied and assisted by her son, is giving oonoerts in Syracuse. City Intelligence. The Wsathk*.?We had a heavy shower of rain yesterday morning about 10 o'olock, and again we were visited at 2 o'clock with a real "stiffner.'' The rain came down in torrents. Towards evening the atmospere cleared off, and the air was cool and agreeable. Kirk.?A Are oocurred yesterday morning at the corner of Avenue C and 101b stieet. in a barber's shop kept by John Kyer, who was severely burned. The fire was occasioned by the bursting of a camphlne lamp. The fire was put out by policeman Mallory. Damage trifling. The French Steamer Piiii.auei.fhia.?This fine steamship was thrown open yesterday to a large company of gentlemen, who inspected and admired her very much. She was in capital order; the dining saloon whs elegantly decorated, and the tables covered profusely with the rarities of the season, prepared by the vatel or rartmr. of the steamer. To-day the Mayor and his family are invited to visit the ship. Tarokt Excursion.?The second oompany National Cadets, made their annual target excursion, yesterday, to Port Hichmond. They made a fine appearance, and under the oommand of their gentlemanly Captain. M E. Crasto, and headed by Uingte'i brass band, marched from No. 198 Bowerv to Tier No. 1 North river, where they embarked ou boardjthe steamer " Huguenot," and after enjoying themselves, and doing some execution, returned In the evening. The Cadets are a fine looking company. Chinksk Junk.?What news from Mexieo ? Has Hcott taken the capital ? Have you seen the Chinese Junk T These are the questions daily and hourly put to our citizens by their friends arriving from the country, and before time enough to answer one has elapsed, the enquirer is on his way to Castle Oarden, to see the strange vessel which he has beard and read so much about. Many people are incredulous in respect to the authenticity or the Junk, because it has been stated that a gentleman connected with a vessel of the kind, has gone to Kngland to make preparations for the exhibition of a similar vessel. We can tell all such, that the Keying. the Junk now hi our harbor. Is the vessel for whose exhibition in Kngland, the gentleman In question is making arrangements, and that he left her at St. Helena for the pnrpose. A PaniK.wniithy Act.?A small boy by tbe name of Theedore Williams, endeavored te jump on board of the Kulton Kerry boat just as she was leaving the dock yesterday morning. and falling short of his jump, struck his face against the edge of the boat, and fell into the river. No sooner was the accident known than one of the deck hands, Phillip Albright, Immediately jumped iu after htm, and succeeded in a most courageous manner in rescuing the poor boy from a waterv grave. Thf. Cash of Mastin Hank.?Martin Hare, the individual who stands charged with the seduction of Mary Fox, a young girl of only 14 years of age, was to have been examined yesterday, but, owing to some unforseen circumrttanoe. It was further postponed. We understand. however, that the case will Anally terminate, by a writ being served upon Hare, at the suit of Mr. Kox, the father of Mary, who will lay his damages at $50,000 for ibis outrageous sedi)ctlon ; and, as the case Is one of an aggravated character, no doybt the Judge will hold the accused to ball in some $1O,0"O, which amount of bail will, in all probability, be more than he can procure ; ron*e<iuenlly, he will be placed in Jail, In the custody of the sheriff. The object appears to be not for gain or remun<<r:ition, but to inflict as muoh punishment as possible on a man who would be guilty of so vile an outrage. As regards the criminal chnrge, that must fall to the ground, aa it seems he has not committed any act by which he is amenable to the criminal law. Hare is still kept in close custody. Our Boston Kibkmen Amain.?We were visited yesterday by another company of our excellent Boston lireman?and the more we see aud meet them, the mere gratified we feel, in oonnecl ion with our citizens in genural, at the admirable demeanor, discipline, and fine appearance of the men. Boston should feel proud of her sons any where, and of her firemen in particular. "Hancock Company, No. 1." from Cliarlestown, under Capt. D. 8. Tucker, arrived hare, from Albany, yesterday evening about five o'clock, iu the "Alida," and were accompanied by Klagg's celebrated Boston Bras* Band This excellent company have been on n pleasure excursion for the last few days, having left their home quarters on Monday.

On leaving Albany yesterday morning, they were escorted to the boat by delegations from the different Are oompanles. and arrived here in the above named boat at about S o'clock. On marching through Broadway to the North American Hotel, headed by their gentlemanly Captain and the Boston BraM Band, who did themselves Infinite credit by their admi sable performance, the entire body presented a fine anpearance. They put up at this hotel, and having brought their machine. they were Invited by No. 1A of this city, to place it under their charge, whloh they availed themselves of 1 his excellent company are a volunteer company, and receive no pay for their services They wear blue shirts and cross belts with the number, he . on the hack A more gentlemanly set of genuine Boetonians we have seldom had the pleasure to converge with.

Law Intelligence. Auu. 13?Supreme Court.?In Chamber*?Before Judge Edwards.?In Re, Paul Brum'.?In our report of the cause of Bruni vs. Benson, tried in the Marine Court on Wednesday, we stated that Bruni was arrested immediately after the trial, under a warrant granted by Justice Drinker, and looked up for the night. Mr. D. P. Hall, his counsel, procured a writ of habeas corpus from Judge Edwards early this morning, and had him brought up at 1 o'clook P. M. The return of the keeper of the city prison was read, whioh stated that he was detained by virtue of a warrant from Justioe Drinker. The justice's warrant was then rea4,wl}ioU stated that it was issued in pursuance of the aot of Congress of 3d Maroh, 1839, whioh authorised magistrate* to issue their warrant! for the apprehension of deserters from foreign vessels. Mr. D. Field, who was associated with Mr. Hall, oontended that there was not enough on the face of the warrant to detain him. Mr. Sandfqrd, the associate of Mr. Tlllare, as oounsel for the Frenoh Consul, contended that there was sufficient on the face of the warrant, and moreover, that the judge should presume that the magistrate had aoted properly in granting it until the contrary was shown, and that the onus ot proof lay on the otW side. Judue Edwards was of the same opinion, and adjourned further prooeedings to this morning, to give Messrs. Hall and Field an opportunity of traversing the return. Discharged.?John McGiberey, George Langly and Edward Caner*n, were discharged from the U. 8. army on the ground of minority.

Sir?It very often happens that persons call at my office to inquire about the Patent Laws of France, and desire me to direot them to tome one In 1'aria to whom they oan trust their power of attorney for the purpose of taking patents.

Drm Herald Having read in your paper, a proposition relative to the departure of the respective Ainerloan, Knglisli. and French trans-Atlantic steamers, that they should not each start from either continent on the sanir day, it was gratifying to me to notice that the preference was given to the Ciniard line, carrying as they do the mail ; and under the supervision of the ' Admi alty," no alteration, deviation, or detention oan be permitted. Their present days of departure are rej gularly advertised, of their days of arrival the publie are the best judges. My present desire is to correct an apparently erroneous impression that these periods of departure from Europe will be maintained and striotly adhered to. This is not the case. On the completion of the double line of steamers carrying Her Majesty's mall, 4 steamer will leave England every Saturday alternately for Boston, via Halifax and New York. This is the correct statement as It now stands between the government and the oontractors, and if this information Is worth your notioe, you are weloome to the same. _ Q.ED. The Fo t l*ee Boats. Editor or New York Herald : Dear 8iR :? Your readiness at all times, and your impartiality in all oases where the community are conoerned, give me the liberty to say that vour remarks In yesterday's Herald, relative to the Kort Lee boats, were unjust to the proprietors and captains of said boats. I have travelled the past month dally by the above line, and found that they started or left their mooring at the time apEointed, or a few minutes after, except when they have ad a strong tide to contend with.

I will give you a few particulars concerning our village. should you find them of any Interest jou may give your reader* the benefit of them. The scenery of the surrounding country l? very splendid. A nail by moonlight to High Bridge, along the bank* of Harlem river, would be quite a treat to you? the scenery, after having paused MoComb'a Dam, Is very picturesque; and the bridge, standing aloof as it does, from any building, when viewed by moonlight, has a oertain grandeur about it that puts one In mind of some antique pieoe of workmanship. Let us take a sail to Ward's Island, which is about three-quarters of a mile from the centre of the village. In a south easterly dlrec tion; at low water may be seen the remains of a bridge, erected by order of Washington, whea he orosaed from Long to Manhattan Island. There is also a large factory here?it was built for a cotton factory during toe lut war, nut u now uml m a hospital for the poor at ok emigrants. Wending our way to tbe south-east end of the Inland, we have a fine view of Long alslnd, Blaokwell's Inland, and Astoria On the north tide of tot Island It Little Hurl Gate, noted for tha large baaa taken there?north of Ward'* la Randall's I aland. Mr. Shea, under, whose supervision it baa been placed by our city fathers', deserves great credit for the manner in whioh he fulfils his duty, supplying our alms house* with milk and vegetables. There haa been quite astir in our village lately on acoount of the approaching marriage of a beautiful young Jewess, Miss J. 8 to Mr. J , a young man of great promise. The wedding came on to-day?the arrangements were commt H fuul. According to Jewish custom thev were married under a cariopy. which was splendidly decorated with flowers The bridesmaids and groomsmen were sis In number; tha company present wax large and fashionable, mostly from your good city of Gotham and everything paaaed off very agreeably The happy couple leave this afternoon for Philadelphia, there to spend tbe honeymoon The trial of Oresn (one of the Lynchburg defaulters) has been postponed till September He afllrms his en tire innocence of any criminal inteut, and declares that he had not participated to any extent in the aae of the money abstracted from the bank?admitting, hpwever, that he has bean criminally culpable in lending himself to Arerett for the long period in whioh he was engaged In his career of fsaud?i?AU*rf ? iftr, KtftM tnWJlMMi In Ait ted for Mantlaitghter?dtocT* Draniston tad Campbell, of the Court ot Sessions, arrested, yesterday, on a brack warraat lamed by the court.

Green, on a warrant Issued by Justice Osborne, whirein he stands charged with obtaining a gold lever watch, valued at $76, from Robert McAdam, No. 88 Cliff street, by false and fraudulent representations. It appear* that on the 6th of July last, the accused called upon McAdam, and asked him if he would sell hi* watch; to which McAdam replied, that if he did, he should want $75, it being of that value. The accused then stated that he would take the watch and show it to a jeweller in Maiden lane, and return with it again immediately, Instead of which he has avoided an Interview with McAdam ever since, and the eomplainant has slnoe ascertained that the watch in question waa taken by Oreen to Simpson's In Chatham street, and pawned for $45.

May their shadows and their exbillrating power* never grow less Our citizens, for about a year and a halt, have been exerting their powers to prevent the bridging of the Connecticut river at Middletown. some JO mile* below this 1 olty, and below the head of sloop navigation. A year since, the charter obtained from our Legislature to the " air- ' line railroad1' gave powers to said corporation to bridge the river, save H4 feet for a draw. This was passed by a I majority of 36 In the House and 1 In the Senate. This I year, after a full and fair hearing of both sides of the i question, and several days spent in its discussion in the House, the bridge clause was stricken out, by a majority of 31?thus showing a change of equal to 67 votes in favor of Its repeal in the House ; but upon coming to the Senate they refused by 1 vote to concur with the House ?and what is most singular, the Senators from three districts, as represented last year, voted in favor of the bridge, this year voted agalust It; and three districts whose Senators, last year voted against the bridge, this year voted for it! The action of tnese two houses shows, i that that bridge clause in the air-line charter is far from being founded on a rock ! The citizens of Hartford are determined to leave no honorable effort untried to preserve the heavenly gift of an unobstructed navigation to the noble Connecticut This is their right and their duty?for the scriptures tell us that he who will not pro vide for his own household is wome than an infidel. Our oitv has* given the corporators notloe of another i application already pending for the bridge clause at the I May, 1848, session of the Legislature.

Several months since, Dr. B., of this city, read before a convocation of ministers a couple of sermons he had ! preached to his people from Eph. 6 c. 4 v.?" Bring them [ up in the nurture and adinouitlnn Of the Lord''?unon ' ' Christian nurture,'' maintaining that if you *' train up 1 a child in the wrj l,*> should go, when he becomes old, : he will not depart from it."

The ohild should not grow up, as is commonly assumed, to be converted after be comes to a mature age, but that he should open on the world aa one that is spiritually renewed. It Is conceivable that a regenerate character may exist long before it Is fully and formally developed He lectures parents in forsaking the good old ways of training up children?and says the present age of Christians holds a piety of connect rather than of love?a kind of public piety that is strenuous and fiery on great ocoasions, bi\t wants the beauty of holiness, loveliness, purity, domesticity, as compared with other examples 01 piety in former timed. He holds to the natural depravity of man, but condemns the baleful implication given children that they are to reject Uod and all holy principle till they oome to mature age; and inquires wherein would it be less incongruous tor you to teach your child that he is to lie and steal, and go the whole round of the vices, and then, after he comes to mature 1 age, reform his conduot l^r the rules of virtue? Uod's I mercy does not gather a Hock away from the lambs 1 Ch 1st said, in regard to chlUlrpn, " forbid them not, for of such is the kingdom of heaven."
